Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign this Agreement in whole together with all rights and obligations under this Agreement, without consent of the other party, in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets not involving a direct competitor of the non-assigning party. Any purported transfer, assignment, or delegation in violation of this section shall be null and void when attempted and of no force or effect. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of EXABEAM and CUSTOMER.
9.5.1 Each party agrees: (1) to hold the other party’s Confidential Information in strict confidence; (2) not to disclose such Confidential Information to any third parties, except as described below; and (3) not to use any Confidential Information except to perform its obligations and exercise its rights under this Agreement. Each party may disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to its employees, contractors, agents, and professional advisors with a bona fide need to know the specific information in question in connection, but only to the extent necessary for such party’s performance of obligations or exercise of rights or under this Agreement and only if all such persons (i) have been instructed that such Confidential Information is subject to the obligation of confidence set forth by this Agreement and (ii) are bound either by contract, employment policies, or fiduciary or professional ethical obligation to maintain such information in confidence.

9.5.3 If a party is ordered by a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body of competent jurisdiction to disclose Confidential Information, or if it is served with or otherwise becomes aware of a motion or similar request that such an order be issued, then such party will not be liable to the other party for disclosure of Confidential Information required by such order if such party complies with the following requirements: (i) if an already-issued order calls for immediate disclosure, then such party immediately shall move for or otherwise request a stay of such order to permit the other party to respond as set forth in this paragraph; (ii) such party immediately shall notify the other party of the motion or order by the most expeditious possible means; (iii) such party shall not oppose a motion or similar request by the other party for an order protecting the confidentiality of the Confidential Information, including not opposing a motion for leave to intervene by the other party; and (iv) such party shall exercise its best efforts to obtain reasonable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the Confidential Information so disclosed.
9.5.4 The parties agree that a breach of this section may cause immediate and irreparable harm for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy and therefore, the parties agree that in addition to any other remedies available at law or hereunder, the disclosing party shall be entitled to seek equitable relief, including injunctive relief, from any court having jurisdiction, to protect its rights and interests pursuant to this section.
9.6 EQUITABLE RELIEF. CUSTOMER acknowledges that EXABEAM would suffer immediate and irreparable harm for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy if CUSTOMER were to breach its obligations under Sections 2.2 (Restrictions) or 2.3 (Ownership). CUSTOMER therefore expressly agrees that EXABEAM shall be entitled to obtain equitable relief, including injunctive relief, from any court having jurisdiction, to protect rights and interests in connection with Section 2 of this Agreement or in connection with any license restriction contained herein. Such remedy shall be in addition to such other remedies as may be available at law or in equity.
9.7 NOTICES. All notices permitted or required under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be delivered by personal delivery, national express courier with a tracking system, or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.

9.8 WAIVERS; AMENDMENT. No waiver of any terms or conditions of this Agreement shall be valid or binding on a party unless such party makes the waiver in hardcopy writing signed by an authorized representative of that party. The failure of one party to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement, or the failure to require at any time the performance of the other party of any of the provisions of this Agreement, shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect the ability of a party to enforce each and every provision thereafter. This Agreement may not be altered, amended, modified, or otherwise changed in any way except by a hardcopy written instrument signed by the authorized representatives of each party.
9.9 SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement is found or held to be invalid or unenforceable by any tribunal of competent jurisdiction, then the meaning of such provision shall be construed, to the extent feasible, so as to render the provision enforceable, and if no feasible interpretation would save such provision, it shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
9.1O FORCE MAJEURE. Neither party shall be liable hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder (except for the payment of money) on account of: (1) any provision of any present or future law or regulation that applies to the subject matter hereof; or (2) strikes, shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storms, explosions, acts of God, war, government action, acts of terrorism, earthquakes, power outages or any other cause that is beyond the reasonable control of such party.
9.11 CONSTRUCTION. The headings of sections of this Agreement are included solely for convenience of reference and are not to be used to interpret, construe, define, or describe the scope of any aspect of this Agreement. As used in this Agreement, the word “including” means “including but not limited to.” Each party represents that it has had the opportunity to participate in the preparation of this Agreement, and any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not be applied in connection with the construction or interpretation of this Agreement. Unless otherwise expressly stated to the contrary herein, all remedies are cumulative, and the exercise of any express remedy by either party herein does not by itself waive such party’s right to exercise its other rights and remedies available at law or in equity.
9.12 COUNTERPARTS; AUTHORIZATION; ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts. Each party represents that the person signing this Agreement on such party’s behalf has been duly authorized and empowered to enter into this Agreement on behalf of such party. This Agreement shall take precedence over any conflicting or inconsistent terms and conditions accompanying any Order or similar document submitted by CUSTOMER to EXABEAM.
9.13.1 GENERAL. CUSTOMER grants EXABEAM the non-exclusive right to use CUSTOMER’s trade and service marks (“Marks”) in accordance with CUSTOMER’s trademark usage guidelines, which may include a requirement for prior approval as to usage, and EXABEAM acknowledges that CUSTOMER may, from time to time, revise these trademark usage guidelines. EXABEAM agrees to cooperate with CUSTOMER in facilitating CUSTOMER’s monitoring and control of the nature and quality of marketing materials and to supply CUSTOMER with specimens of use of the Marks upon request, and to comply with any instructions of CUSTOMER in relation to Mark use. Notwithstanding the foregoing, EXABEAM may, without prior approval of the CUSTOMER, include CUSTOMER’s name and/or Marks in EXABEAM customer lists or like materials.
9.13.2 OWNERSHIP. EXABEAM acknowledges the validity of the Marks and CUSTOMER’s ownership thereof. EXABEAM shall not challenge CUSTOMER’s rights in any Marks that EXABEAM uses. All goodwill and reputation which accrues to any Marks in the course of EXABEAM promotion and licensing of the Products shall automatically vest in CUSTOMER without any separate or additional consideration of any kind to EXABEAM. EXABEAM shall not adopt, use, register, make application or attempt to register (whether such registration is for a trade mark, trade name, service mark, corporate or business name, a domain name or otherwise) Marks or other marketing name(s) of CUSTOMER or any confusingly similar mark, uniform resource locator (URL), Internet domain name, or symbol.
