3. Confidentiality; Ownership. Recipient acknowledges that, in the course of using the Evaluation Materials and performing its duties under this Agreement, it may obtain information relating to the Evaluation Materials and/or Risk Focus (“Proprietary Information”).

In regard to this Proprietary Information:
a. Recipient shall not, during the term of this Agreement and for a period of at least five (5) years after its termination, use (except as expressly authorized by this Agreement) or disclose Proprietary Information without the prior written consent of Risk Focus unless such Proprietary Information becomes part of the public domain without breach of this Agreement by Recipient, its officers, directors, employees or agents.
b. During the period specified in (a) above, Recipient will take all necessary measures to maintain the Proprietary Information and Evaluation Materials in confidence.
c. During the period specified in (a) above, individual employees of Recipient will not share or copy the Evaluation Materials and Proprietary Information with any other individuals. Individual employees of Recipient shall not, without the prior written consent of Risk Focus, disclose or otherwise make available the Evaluation Materials or copies thereof to any third party.

e. Recipient hereby does and shall assign to Risk Focus any invention, work of authorship, mask work, idea, information, feedback or know-how (whether or not patentable) that is conceived, learned or reduced to practice in the course of using the Evaluation Materials and any patent rights, copyrights (including moral rights; provided that any non-assignable moral rights are waived to the extent permitted by law), trade secret rights, mask work rights and all other intellectual and industrial property rights of any sort with respect thereto. Recipient agrees to take any action reasonably requested by Risk Focus to evidence, perfect, obtain, maintain, enforce or defend the foregoing.
f. In the event that Recipient becomes aware of any breach of this Section 3, Recipient shall immediately inform Risk Focus in an email to legal@RiskFocus.com.
5. Limitation of Remedies and Damages.
RISK FOCUS SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY (A) FOR LOSS OR INACCURACY OF DATA OR COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY, OR (B) FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF REVENUES AND LOSS OF PROFITS. RISK FOCUS SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MATTER BEYOND ITS REASONABLE CONTROL.
Although fully assignable and transferable by Risk Focus, neither the rights nor the obligations arising under this Agreement are assignable or transferable by Recipient, and any such attempted assignment or transfer shall be void and without effect.
7. Execution of Agreement, Controlling Law, Attorneys’ Fees and Severability.
This Agreement shall become effective only upon its execution and it shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without regard to conflict of laws provisions.

In any action to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees. In the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
8. Entire Agreement.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties pertaining to its subject matter, and any and all written or oral agreements previously existing between the parties are expressly cancelled. Any modifications of this Agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties.
9. Equitable Relief.
Recipient acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of Risk Focus’ Proprietary Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations, that any such breach may allow Recipient or third parties to unfairly compete with Risk Focus resulting in irreparable harm to Risk Focus, and therefore, that upon any such breach or threat of breach, Risk Focus shall be entitled to injunctions and other appropriate equitable relief without posting a bond, in addition to whatever remedies it may have at law.
The “Term” of this Agreement shall be the period of time commencing on the Effective Date and ending upon the earlier of the end of the Evaluation Term or any termination under this Section 10. Additionally, this Agreement may be terminated immediately upon notice of any breach by Recipient of any provision of this Agreement. Upon termination, the license granted under this Agreement will terminate and Recipient shall immediately destroy or return the Evaluation Materials, together with any and all documents, notes and other materials regarding the Evaluation Materials to Risk Focus, including, without limitation, all Proprietary Information and all copies and extracts of the foregoing.
11. Basis of Bargain.
EACH PARTY RECOGNIZES AND AGREES THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIABILITY AND REMEDY LIMITATIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE MATERIAL, BARGAINED FOR BASES OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT AND REFLECTED IN DETERMINING THE CONSIDERATION TO BE GIVEN BY EACH PARTY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AND IN THE DECISION BY EACH PARTY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.
