2. LICENSE GRANT
2.1. License Grant. Pivotal grants Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without rights to sublicense, to use Software and Documentation, and related Support Services, up to the maximum licensed capacity during the period identified in the Quote, in the Territory, and subject to the Guide, for internal business operations only. Should Licensee exceed the licensed capacity, it will promptly procure additional license rights at a mutually agreed price. Third Party Agents may access Software on Licensee’s behalf during the applicable period solely for Licensee’s internal business operations. Licensee may make 1 unmodified backup copy of Software solely for archival purposes. If Licensee upgrades or exchanges Software from a previous validly licensed version, Licensee must cease using all prior Software versions and certify same to Pivotal. Licensee is responsible for obtaining any software, hardware or other technology required to operate Software and complying with any corresponding terms and conditions.
2.2. License Restrictions. Licensee must not, and must not allow any third party to: (a) use Software in an application services provider, service bureau, or similar capacity; (b) disclose to any third party the results of any benchmark testing or comparative or competitive analyses of Software without Pivotal’s prior written approval; (c) except as otherwise expressly permitted by Pivotal, make Software available for access or use to any third party; (d) transfer or sublicense Software or Documentation (other than to an Affiliate, subject to Pivotal’s prior written approval); (e) use Software in conflict with the Guide, Quote and/or Order; (f) except as permitted by applicable mandatory law or third party license, modify, translate, enhance, or create derivative works from Software, or reverse assemble or disassemble, reverse engineer, decompile (subject to Section 2.5), or otherwise attempt to derive source code from Software; (g) remove any copyright or other proprietary notices on or in Software; or (h) violate or circumvent any technological restrictions within Software or as otherwise specified in this EULA.

At least 60 days before expiration of the Subscription Period, Pivotal will notify Licensee of its option to renew for 1 additional year at the same annual rate in the Quote or Order. Licensee’s Subscription License shall automatically renew at the end of the Subscription Period for 1 additional year at the same annual rate stated in the Quote or Order if Licensee does not notify Pivotal at least 30 days before expiration of the Subscription Period of Licensee’s intent not to renew. Upon such notification, Licensee agrees to cease using Software at the expiration of the Subscription Period and will certify cessation of use to Pivotal.
2.5. Decompilation. If applicable laws in the Territory grant an express right to decompile Software to render it interoperable with other software, Licensee may decompile Software, but must first request Pivotal to do so, providing all requested information to allow Pivotal to assess the request. Pivotal may, in its discretion, provide such interoperability information, impose reasonable conditions, including a reasonable fee, on such use of Software, or offer to provide alternatives to protect Pivotal’s proprietary rights therein.
2.6. Reserved Rights. Pivotal retains all right, title, and interest in and to Software and Documentation, all related intellectual property rights, and all rights not expressly granted to Licensee in this EULA.
3. ORDERS. Licensee’s Order is subject to this EULA. No Orders are binding until accepted by Pivotal. Orders for Software are deemed accepted upon Pivotal’s delivery of Software included in such Order. Orders issued to Pivotal do not have to be signed to be valid and enforceable. Licensee shall pay in full in accordance with Pivotal’s invoice. Orders for Subscription Licenses are non-cancelable and non-refundable.
4. WARRANTY/DISCLAIMER. Pivotal warrants to Licensee that Software will, for the Warranty Period, substantially conform to the applicable Documentation, provided such Software: (a) has been properly installed and used in accordance with the Documentation; and (b) has not been modified by persons other than Pivotal. For any breach of this warranty, Pivotal will, at its option and expense, and as Licensee’s exclusive remedy for any breach of this warranty, either replace that Software or correct any reproducible error in that Software reported to Pivotal by Licensee in writing during the Warranty Period. If Pivotal determines that it is unable to replace that Software or correct that error, Pivotal will refund to Licensee the amount paid by Licensee for that Software, and the license will terminate. OTHER THAN THE WARRANTY ABOVE, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PIVOTAL AND ITS DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO OTHER WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, AND DISCLAIM ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTY ARISING BY STATUTE, OPERATION OF LAW, COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE.

Subject to the remainder of this Section 5 and Section 6 of this EULA, Pivotal shall (a) defend Licensee against any Claim that Software infringes a copyright or patent enforceable in a Berne Convention signatory country; and (b) pay resulting costs and damages finally awarded against Licensee by a court of competent jurisdiction, or pay amounts stated in a written settlement negotiated and approved by Pivotal. The foregoing obligations apply only if Licensee (i) promptly notifies Pivotal in writing of such Claim; (ii) grants Pivotal sole control over defense and settlement; (iii) reasonably cooperates in response to Pivotal’s request for assistance; (iv) is not in material breach of this EULA; and (v) is current in payment of all applicable fees prior to a Claim.
5.2. Remedies. If the allegedly infringing Software is held to constitute an infringement, or in Pivotal’s opinion, Software is likely to become infringing and its use enjoined, Pivotal may, at its sole option and expense: (a) procure for Licensee the right to make continued use of the affected Software; (b) replace or modify the affected Software to make it non-infringing; or (c) notify Licensee to return the affected Software and, upon receipt, discontinue the related support services and, for Subscription Licenses, refund unused prepaid fees calculated based on each month remaining in the period identified in the Quote or Order.
5.3. Exclusions. Neither Pivotal nor any Distributor shall have any obligation under this Section 5 or otherwise with respect to any infringement Claim that arises out of or relates to: (a) combination, operation or use of Software with any other software, hardware, technology, data, or other materials, if the infringement would not have arisen but for such combination, operation or use; (b) use for a purpose or in a manner for which Software was not designed or use after Pivotal notifies Licensee to cease such use due to a possible or pending infringement Claim; (c) any modifications to Software made by any person other than Pivotal or its authorized representatives; (d) any modifications to Software made by Pivotal pursuant to instructions, designs, specifications, or any other information provided to Pivotal by or on behalf of Licensee; (e) use of any version of Software when an upgrade or a newer iteration of Software made available by Pivotal could have avoided the infringement; (f) any data or information which Licensee or a third party utilizes in connection with Software; or (g) any Open Source Software.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT MANDATED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL PIVOTAL OR ITS DISTRIBUTORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, OR ANY OTHER INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE. PIVOTAL’S AND ITS DISTRIBUTORS’ LIABILITY UNDER THIS EULA SHALL NOT, IN ANY EVENT, EXCEED THE LESSER OF (A) FEES LICENSEE PAID FOR SOFTWARE DURING THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE PIVOTAL RECEIVES WRITTEN NOTICE OF THE FIRST CLAIM TO ARISE UNDER THIS EULA; OR (B) USD $1,000,000. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER PIVOTAL OR ITS DISTRIBUTORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

Pivotal may also terminate this EULA for convenience by giving 3 month’s written notice to Licensee. All provisions of this EULA will survive any termination or expiration if by its nature and context it is intended to survive.

Each party shall (a) use the other party’s Confidential Information only for exercising rights and performing obligations in connection with this EULA; and (b) protect from disclosure any Confidential Information disclosed by the other party for a period commencing upon the disclosure date until 3 years thereafter. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may disclose Confidential Information: (i) to an Affiliate to fulfill its obligations or exercise its rights under this EULA so long as such Affiliate agrees to comply with these restrictions in writing; and (ii) if required by law or regulatory authorities provided the receiving party has given the disclosing party prompt notice before disclosure. Pivotal shall not be responsible for unauthorized disclosure of Licensee’s data stored within Software arising from a data security breach. Licensee is solely responsible for all obligations to comply with laws applicable to Licensee’s Software use, including without limitation any personal data processing. Pivotal may collect, use, store and transmit technical and related information about Licensee’s Software use, including server internet protocol address, hardware identification, operating system, application software, peripheral hardware, and Software usage statistics, to facilitate the provisioning of updates, support, invoicing, and online services. Licensee is responsible for obtaining all consents required to enable Pivotal to exercise its confidentiality rights, in compliance with applicable law.
9. RECORDS/AUDIT. For the period set forth in the Quote and/or Order, any renewals, and for 3 years thereafter, Licensee shall maintain accurate records regarding its compliance with this EULA. Upon reasonable notice (and no more than once per year), Pivotal may audit Licensee’s Software use to determine such compliance and payment of fees. Licensee will promptly pay additional fees identified by the audit and reimburse Pivotal for all audit costs if it discloses underpayment by more than 5% in the audited period, or that Licensee breached any EULA term.
