During the Term of this License and for a three (3) year period following termination, Licensor shall have the right (at Licensor's own expense) to conduct periodic reviews of Licensee's records relating to its Licensed Software for the purpose of verifying Licensee's compliance with this License. Licensor shall exercise this right upon no fewer than 30 days' prior notice. Licensee will provide Licensor with reasonable accommodation for the review, including reasonable use of available office equipment. Licensor shall deliver to Licensee a copy of the results of any such review. Licensee shall promptly pay the amount of any underpayment. Licensee shall also pay Licensor the cost of any audit, including (without limitation) travel expenses and the costs of any attorneys and accountants, if the amount Licensee underpaid Licensor is five percent (5%) or more of the amount actually paid by Licensee. Complete and accurate documents shall be retained by Licensee for three years following termination of this License.
Licensor may terminate this License immediately if the Licensee shall breach any of the provisions of this License and such breach remains uncured 30 days after receipt of notice.

For Licensee Modifications, Licensee shall include in the modified files a conspicuous notice that the Licensed Software contains Licensee Modifications and is subject to the terms and conditions of this License, and that indicates the date(s) of each Licensee Modification.

LICENSOR DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE LICENSED SOFTWARE WILL MEET LICENSEE'S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE LICENSED SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED. THE ENTIRE RISK OF THE LICENSED SOFTWARE'S QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE IS WITH LICENSEE.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, LICENSOR SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS LICENSE OR OTHERWISE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING (WITHOUT LIMITATION) ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS (WHETHER RESULTING FROM IMPAIRED OR LOST DATA, SOFTWARE OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR ANY OTHER CAUSE), EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION IN THIS LICENSE, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIABILITY OF LICENSOR FOR ANY REASON AND UPON ANY CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID TO LICENSOR BY LICENSEE UNDER THIS LICENSE. THIS LIMITATION APPLIES TO ALL CAUSES OF ACTION IN THE AGGREGATE, INCLUDING (WITHOUT LIMITATION) BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE, MISREPRESENTATIONS AND OTHER TORTS. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE REMEDIES AND LIMITATIONS HEREIN ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AS AUTHORIZED BY APPLICABLE LAWS. THE LICENSE FEES ARE SET IN RELIANCE UPON THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK AND THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES AS SET FORTH IN THIS LICENSE.
Failure by Licensor to exercise any right or remedy does not signify acceptance of the event giving rise to such right or remedy. No action arising out of this License may be brought by Licensee more than one year after the cause of action has accrued. If any part of this License is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal or unenforceable, the validity or enforceability of the remainder of this License shall not be affected and such provision shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make such provision consistent with applicable law and, in its modified form, such provision shall be enforceable and enforced. Licensor reserves the right not to accept any order for the Licensed Software. Any invoice issued by Licensor in connection with this License shall be deemed a part of this License. To the extent of any inconsistency between a Licensee's order and an invoice issued by Licensor, the terms and conditions of the invoice shall prevail; Licensee shall be deemed to have accepted an invoice upon payment of such invoice.
This License will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns. Without the prior written consent of Licensor, Licensee may not assign, sublicense or otherwise transfer this License or its rights or obligations under this License to any person or party, whether by operation of law or otherwise; any attempt by Licensee to assign this License without Licensor's prior written consent shall be null and void. There are no intended third party beneficiaries of this License. The parties are, and shall remain, independent contractors; nothing in this License is designed to create, nor shall create between them, a partnership, joint venture, agency, or employment relationship.
This License shall be deemed to have been executed in (Licensors Country here) and shall be governed by the laws of (Licensors Country here), without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. The Parties shall first attempt to resolve any disputes, controversies, or claims (a "Dispute") arising out of or relating to this License through discussions and negotiations between each other. If a Dispute cannot be resolved amicably between the Parties, such Dispute shall be referred to (Licensors Court name here) as mandatory venue. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if the Licensee is located in a country that does not have a bilateral or multilateral ruling enforcement treaty with (Licensors country here), the Dispute shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Arbitration and Mediation Center in accordance with the WIPO Arbitration Rules. The place of arbitration shall be in (Licensors adress here). The arbitrator shall be bound by the provisions of this License and base the award on applicable law and judicial precedent. The Parties agree that the arbitrator shall have the power to decide all matters, including arbitrability, and to award any remedies, including attorneys' fees, costs and equitable relief, available under applicable law. Either party may enforce any judgment rendered by the arbitrator in any court of competent jurisdiction. The Parties further agree and acknowledge that arbitration shall be the sole, exclusive and final remedy for any dispute between the Parties, and they are waiving their respective rights to have any dispute between them resolved in a court of law by a judge or jury. In no event shall the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods or any adopted version of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act apply to, or govern, this License. Licensee shall comply at its own expense with all relevant and applicable laws related to use of the Licensed Software as permitted in this License. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensor may seek injunctive or other equitable relief in any jurisdiction in order to protect its intellectual property rights.
