THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO TRIAL CUSTOMER “AS-IS”, AND TRIAL CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE SERVICES IS SOLELY AT TRIAL CUSTOMER’S OWN RISK. EGNYTE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERIVCES WILL MEET TRIAL CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE OR SECURE BEYOND ANY POSSIBLE THREAT. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, EGNYTE DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, AND STATUTORY, CONCERNING THE SERVICES (OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT), INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY STATUTORY WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL EGNYTE OR ITS SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO TRIAL CUSTOMER FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE FOR LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES OR LOST DATA OR SIMILAR ECONOMIC LOSS, REGARDLESS OF HOW SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES ARE CHARACTERIZED, OR FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, INDIRECT, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT OR FOR ANY CLAIM MADE BY AN AUTHORIZED USER OR OTHER THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF EGNYTE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF SUCH CLAIM. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL EGNYTE’S TOTAL, AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO TRIAL CUSTOMER ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING FOR NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, WARRANTY, MISREPRESENTATION, AND OTHER CONTRACT OR TORT CLAIMS) EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF DIRECT DAMAGES ACTUALLY INCURRED BY TRIAL CUSTOMER UP TO EITHER (I) THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID BY TRIAL CUSTOMER TO EGNYTE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT; OR (II) IF NO AMOUNTS ARE PAID BY TRIAL CUSTOMER TO EGNYTE HEREUNDER, ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($1,000.00). TRIAL CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES, AGREES, AND WARRANTS THAT TRIAL CUSTOMER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE AND LIABLE FOR VERIFYING THE ACCURACY AND ADEQUACY OF ANY OUTPUT FROM THE SERVICES, AND FOR ANY RELIANCE THEREON, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW TRIAL CUSTOMER WAIVES ANY AND ALL CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING THEREFROM.
This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of law rules or principles. This Agreement shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Unless resolved amicably between the parties, any and all disputes, controversies, or differences which may arise between the parties out of or in relation to or in connection with this Agreement (or the breach thereof) shall be brought exclusively before the state or federal courts for the County of Santa Clara, California.
Trial Customer acknowledges and agrees that any and all access, analysis, and associated transmission of content made by the Services in furtherance of the Purpose shall be deemed authorized by Trial Customer under any International, Federal, or State laws, or rules and regulations that relate to, regulate, or impact the utilization of the Services in Trial Customer’s jurisdiction, each as may be amended from time to time.
Subject to Section 9 above, if either party brings legal action to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party in such action shall be entitled to receive all costs and expenses, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’, accountants’ and other experts’ fees and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in investigating and prosecuting (or defending) such action, and in any appeal of any judgment thereon. Trial Customer may not assign, transfer, or pledge this Agreement or the Services, directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Egnyte. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be interpreted in a manner so as to be enforceable to the maximum extent permissible under law, and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. This Agreement constitutes the parties’ complete agreement regarding the subject matter described herein, superseding any prior oral or written communications, representations, or agreements, including any non-disclosure agreement (with the confidentiality provisions of this Agreement to govern any prior disclosures of confidential information). Any terms in a Trial Customer’s purchase order shall be void and of no effect, even if Egnyte signs off on such order. Amendments or changes to this Agreement must be in a mutually executed writing to be effective. The parties are independent contractors for all purposes under this Agreement. Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure due to force majeure or cause beyond its reasonable control. The parties do not intend that any term of this Agreement shall be enforceable by any third party. Any notices or consents under this Agreement to either party must be in writing and personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, or by nationally recognized overnight express courier, to an official address of a party, and notices shall be deemed delivered when received (or if delivery is rejected by a party, receipt shall be deemed upon rejection).
For purpose of clarification, if Trial Customer is also a present customer of Egnyte under a non-trial Egnyte services agreement, in no manner shall this Agreement impact such non-trial services agreement. Should Trial Customer subsequently enter into a paid agreement with Egnyte for Egnyte products or services, the use of such products or services shall be governed by the terms and conditions included in Trial Customer’s written agreement with Egnyte (or if none is executed, by the terms and conditions located at the following link: https://www.egnyte.com/terms-and-conditions/10-2022), and such terms and conditions shall supersede and replace the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Trial Customer enters into a paid subscription through or as an Egnyte channel partner, the applicable terms of your agreement under that relationship shall govern such subscription and shall supersede and replace this Agreement.
