THIS SECTION SETS FORTH USER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY ALLEGED INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION RELATING TO THE SOFTWARE.
To the extent permitted by law, or agreed to in writing, in advance, User agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Turning, and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners and licensors, harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of: (a) User’s improper use of the Turning Services and Software; (b) User’s violation of these Terms; (c) User’s violation of any rights of another party, including any other User; and/or (d) User’s violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. Turning reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by User, in which event User will fully cooperate with Turning in asserting any available defenses. User agrees that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of User’s Account, these Terms, or User’s access to the Turning Services and Software.
Turning will defend or settle, at its option and expense, any action brought against User alleging that the Services or Turning Software infringes or misappropriates any third-party intellectual property rights. Turning will pay any costs incurred by User that are attributable to the infringement action. User understands and agrees that as conditions to Turning’s obligations under this section User must (a) notify Turning promptly in writing of the action; (b) provide to Turning all reasonable information and assistance to defend or settle the action; and (c) grant Turning sole authority and control of the defense or settlement of the action. If an infringement claim is made, Turning may, at its option and expense (i) replace or modify Software so that it becomes non-infringing; (ii) procure for User the right to continue using Software; or (iii) require the return of the Software and refund to User any License Fees paid, less a reasonable amount for use. Turning has no liability to User if the infringement claim is based upon the combination of the Services and Software with any product not furnished by Turning or modification of the Services and Software other than by Turning.
User acknowledges that User’s failure to comply with any of the provisions of this License Agreement relating to confidentiality, proprietary and intellectual property rights, and non-disclosure will irreparably harm Turning and its affiliates, and that Turning and its affiliates will not have an adequate remedy at law. Therefore, User acknowledges and agrees that Turning and its affiliates will be entitled to injunctive relief in addition to any and all other remedies it may have, at law or in equity.
- Governing Law; Jurisdiction
This License Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Ohio, without giving effect to principles of conflict of laws. Any dispute between the parties connected with this Agreement shall be submitted to the sole jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Ohio, County of Mahoning, or, if it has or can acquire jurisdiction, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. Each of the party’s consent to the jurisdiction of such courts (and of the appropriate appellate courts) in any such action or proceeding and waives any objection to venue laid therein.
This License Agreement (and, if applicable, the Turning Technologies Services Agreement) contains the complete agreement between Turning and User with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, whether oral or written. User agrees that any varying or additional terms contained in any purchase order or other written document issued by, or on behalf of, User (whether issued by User or Turning) in relation to the Software shall be of no effect (with the exception of the Turning Technologies Services Agreement, if applicable). The failure or delay of Turning to exercise any of its rights under this License Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of those rights. If any provision of this License Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to applicable law, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remaining provisions of this License Agreement will remain in full force and effect. In the event and to the extent that any part or provision of this License Agreement is invalid or unenforceable in any particular state or jurisdiction, such part or provision shall be interpreted both to be valid and enforceable and to conform to the greatest extent possible to the intent and purpose of such part or provision as set forth in this License Agreement.
Turning may amend this License Agreement from time to time. If we make material changes to this License Agreement, we may notify User by posting the change(s) on Turning’s website, or in the Software, or by sending User an email at User’s primary email address as specified in User’s Account. Any changes to this License Agreement will be effective immediately for new users of our Application; otherwise such changes will be effective upon the earlier of fourteen (14) calendar days following our dispatch of a notice to User or fourteen (14) calendar days following our posting of a notice on the Services whichever is earlier. User is responsible at all times for updating User’s Account to provide to Turning with User’s most current email address. If the last email address that User has provided to Turning is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering the notice described above, our dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes. Continued use of our Services and Software following notice of such changes will indicate User’s acknowledgement of, and User’s agreement to be bound by, such changes.
