12. Indemnification

 12.1  itopia Indemnification. itopia shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer and Customer’s officers, directors, employees, agents, permitted successors, and permitted assigns (each, a “Customer Indemnitee”) from and against any and all Losses incurred by a Customer Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party (other than an Affiliate of a Customer Indemnitee) that Customer’s use of the Services (excluding Customer Data and Third-Party Materials) in accordance with this Agreement (including the Specifications) infringes or misappropriates such third party’s patents, copyrights, or trade secrets. The foregoing obligation does not apply to the extent that the alleged infringement arises from: (a)  Third-Party Materials or Customer Data; (b)  access to or use of the itopia Materials in combination with any hardware, system, software, network, or other materials or service not provided by itopia or specified for Customer’s use in the Documentation; (c)  modification of the itopia Materials other than: (i) by or on behalf of itopia; or (ii) with itopia’s written approval in accordance with itopia’s written specification; or (d)  failure to timely implement any modifications, upgrades, replacements, or enhancements made available to Customer by or on behalf of itopia.

 12.2  Customer Indemnification. Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless itopia and its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns (each, a “itopia Indemnitee”) from and against any and all Losses incurred by such itopia Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party (other than an Affiliate of a itopia Indemnitee) to the extent that such Losses arise out of or result from, or are alleged to arise out of or result from:  (a)  Customer Data, including any Processing of Customer Data by or on behalf of itopia in accordance with this Agreement; (b)  any other materials or information (including any documents, data, specifications, software, content, or technology) provided by or on behalf of Customer or any Authorized User, including itopia’s compliance with any specifications or directions provided by or on behalf of Customer or any Authorized User to the extent prepared without any contribution by itopia; (c)  allegation of facts that, if true, would constitute Customer’s breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants, or obligations under this Agreement; or (d)  negligence or more culpable act or omission (including recklessness or willful misconduct) by Customer, any Authorized User, or any third party on behalf of Customer or any Authorized User, in connection with this Agreement.

 12.3  Indemnification Procedure. Each party shall promptly notify the other party in writing of any Action for which such party believes it is entitled to be indemnified pursuant to this Section 12. The party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnitee”) shall cooperate with the other party (the “Indemnitor”) at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitor shall promptly assume control of the defense and shall employ counsel of its choice to handle and defend the same, at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitee may participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense with counsel of its own choosing. The Indemnitor shall not settle any Action without the Indemnitee’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. The Indemnitee’s failure to perform any obligations under this Section 12.3 will not relieve the Indemnitor of its obligations under this Section 12, except to the extent that the Indemnitor can demonstrate that it has been materially prejudiced as a result of such failure.

12.4  Mitigation. If any of the Services or itopia Materials are, or in itopia’s opinion are likely to be, claimed to infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any third-party Intellectual Property Right, or if Customer’s or any Authorized User’s use of the Services or itopia Materials is enjoined or threatened to be enjoined, itopia may, at its option and sole cost and expense: (a) obtain the right for Customer to continue to use the Services and itopia Materials materially as contemplated by this Agreement; (b) modify or replace the Services and itopia Materials, in whole or in part, to seek to make the Services and itopia Materials (as so modified or replaced) non-infringing, while providing materially equivalent features and functionality, in which case such modifications or replacements will constitute Services and itopia Materials, as applicable, under this Agreement; or (c) by written notice to Customer, terminate this Agreement with respect to all or part of the Services and itopia Materials, and require Customer to immediately cease any use of the Services and itopia Materials or any specified part or feature thereof.

12.5  Sole Remedy. THIS SECTION 12 SETS FORTH CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDIES AND itopia’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THE SERVICES AND itopia MATERIALS OR ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.

13. Limitations of Liability

 13.1  EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN SECTION 13.3, IN NO EVENT WILL itopia OR ANY OF ITS LICENSORS, SERVICE itopiaS, OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ITS SUBJECT MATTER UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, FOR ANY: (A) LOSS OF PRODUCTION, USE, BUSINESS, REVENUE, OR PROFIT OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE; (B) IMPAIRMENT, INABILITY TO USE OR LOSS, INTERRUPTION OR DELAY OF THE SERVICES, OTHER THAN FOR THE ISSUANCE OF ANY APPLICABLE SERVICE CREDITS PURSUANT TO SECTION 5; (C) LOSS, DAMAGE, CORRUPTION OR RECOVERY OF DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY; (D) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES; (E) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION; OR (F) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PERSONS WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY AGREED OR OTHER REMEDY OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

 13.2  CAP ON MONETARY LIABILITY. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN SECTION 13.3, IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF itopia ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER ARISING UNDER OR RELATED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, EXCEED ONE (1) TIMES THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID AND AMOUNTS ACCRUED BUT NOT YET PAID TO LICENSOR UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM OR $250,000, WHICHEVER IS LESS. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

 13.3  Exceptions. The exclusions and limitations in Sections 13.1 and 13.2 do not apply to itopia’s obligations under Section 12 or liability for itopia’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

14. Term and Termination

14.1  Initial Term. The initial term of this Agreement commences as of the Effective Date and, unless terminated earlier pursuant any of the Agreement’s express provisions, will continue in effect during the period of time stated in Exhibit A or any applicable SOW, or if no period of time is specifically stated in Exhibit A or any applicable SOW, until thirty-six (36) months from the Effective Date (the “Initial Term”).

 14.2  Renewal Term. This Agreement will automatically renew for additional successive one (1) year terms unless earlier terminated pursuant to this Agreement’s express provisions or either party gives the other party written notice of non-renewal at least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the then-current term (each a “Renewal Term” and, collectively, together with the Initial Term, the “Term”).

 14.3  Termination. In addition to any other express termination right set forth elsewhere in this Agreement: (a) itopia may terminate this Agreement, effective on written notice to Customer, if Customer fails to pay any amount when due hereunder, and such failure continues more than ten (10) days after itopia’s delivery of written notice thereof; or (b) either party may terminate this Agreement, effective on written notice to the other party, if the other party materially breaches this Agreement, and such breach: (i) is incapable of cure; or (ii) being capable of cure, remains uncured thirty (30) days after the non-breaching party provides the breaching party with written notice of such breach; and (c) either party may terminate this Agreement, effective immediately upon written notice to the other party, if the other party: (i) becomes insolvent or is generally unable to pay, or fails to pay, its debts as they become due; (ii) files or has filed against it, a petition for voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or otherwise becomes subject, voluntarily or involuntarily, to any proceeding under any domestic or foreign bankruptcy or insolvency Law; (iii) makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or (iv) applies for or has appointed a receiver, trustee, custodian, or similar agent appointed by order of any court of competent jurisdiction to take charge of or sell any material portion of its property or business.

 14.4  Effect of Termination or Expiration. Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, except as expressly otherwise provided in this Agreement: (a) all rights, licenses, consents, and authorizations granted by either party to the other hereunder will immediately terminate; (b) itopia shall immediately cease all use of any Customer Data or Customer’s Confidential Information; (c) Customer shall immediately cease all use of any Services or itopia Materials and promptly return to itopia, or at itopia’s written request destroy, all documents and tangible materials containing, reflecting, incorporating, or based on any itopia Materials or itopia’s Confidential Information; and (d) itopia may disable all Customer and Authorized User access to the itopia Materials.

14.5  Early Termination Charge. If this Agreement is terminated by Customer prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term and such termination is not due to itopia’s material breach and failure to cure, or if itopia terminates this Agreement pursuant to Section 14.3, in additional to any Fees becoming due prior to the date of termination, Customer shall pay to itopia an early termination charge equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the Fees comprising monthly recurring charges that would become due and payable through the end of the Initial Term or Renewal Term in effect at the time, including applicable taxes.  The parties agree that the precise damages resulting from an early termination by Customer or termination by itopia due to Customer’s material breach are difficult to ascertain and the early termination charge set forth in this Section 14.5 is a reasonable estimate of anticipated actual damages and not a penalty. The early termination charge shall be due and payable upon receipt of an invoice therefor.

 14.6  Surviving Terms. The provisions set forth in the following sections, and any other right or obligation of the parties in this Agreement that, by its nature, should survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement:  Section 3, Section 9, Section 11.4, Section 12, Section 13, Section 14.4, Section 14.5 and Section 15.

15. Miscellaneous

 15.1  Further Assurances. On a party’s reasonable request, the other party shall, at the requesting party’s sole cost and expense, execute and deliver all such documents and instruments, and take all such further actions, as may be necessary to give full effect to this Agreement.

 15.2  Relationship of the Parties. The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, joint venture, or other form of joint enterprise, employment, or fiduciary relationship between the parties, and neither party shall have authority to contract for or bind the other party in any manner whatsoever.

 15.3  Public Announcements. Neither party shall issue or release any announcement, statement, press release, or other publicity or marketing materials relating to this Agreement or, unless expressly permitted under this Agreement, otherwise use the other party’s trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, or other indicia of source, association, or sponsorship, in each case, without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, provided, however, that itopia may, without Customer’s consent, include Customer’s name and similar indicia in its lists of itopia’s current or former customers of itopia in promotional and marketing materials.

15.4  Notices. Any notice, request, consent, claim, demand, waiver, or other communications under this Agreement have legal effect only if in writing and addressed to a party as follows (or to such other address or such other person that such party may designate from time to time in accordance with this Section 15.4):

The parties intend this Agreement to be construed without regard to any presumption or rule requiring construction or interpretation against the party drafting an instrument or causing any instrument to be drafted.

 15.6  Headings. The headings in this Agreement are for reference only and do not affect the interpretation of this Agreement.

 15.7  Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with any related exhibits, schedules, attachments, statements of work and any other documents incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter.

No assignment, delegation, or transfer will relieve Customer of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement. Any purported assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of this Section 15.8 is void. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

 15.9  Force Majeure. In no event will either party be liable or responsible to the other party, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement, (except for any obligations to make payments)], when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond such party’s reasonable control (a “Force Majeure Event”), including acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake or explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the date of this Agreement, national or regional emergency, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, passage of Law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo, export or import restriction, quota, or other restriction or prohibition or any complete or partial government shutdown, or national or regional shortage of adequate power or telecommunications or transportation.

 15.11  Amendment and Modification; Waiver. No amendment to or modification of this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of each party. No waiver by any party of any of the provisions hereof shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement will operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.

15.12  Severability. If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.

15.13  Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Florida without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Florida. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the licenses granted hereunder will be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Florida, and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding. Service of process, summons, notice, or other document by mail to such party’s address set forth herein shall be effective service of process for any suit, action, or other proceeding brought in any such court.

15.14  Waiver of Jury Trial. Each party irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to a trial by jury in respect of any legal action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.

 15.15  Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such party of any of its obligations under Section 9 or, in the case of Customer Sections 3. 4.3 or 7.3, would cause the other party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other party will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.

 15.16  Attorneys’ Fees. In the event that any action, suit, or other legal or administrative proceeding is instituted or commenced by either party against the other party arising out of or related to this Agreement, the prevailing party is entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs from the non-prevailing party.

15.17  Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is deemed an original, but all of which together are deemed to be one and the same agreement. A signed copy of this Agreement delivered by facsimile, email, or other means of electronic transmission is deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original signed copy of this Agreement.
