THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF THE PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS AGREEMENT SETS FORTH THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF TINNACITY AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE AND ITS USE.

 

Further, you agree to indemnify and hold Tinnacity harmless from any and all claims, liability and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, arising out of your use of the Software or breach of this Agreement (collectively referred to as "Claims").

We may also change or discontinue the Software, in whole or in part. Your continued use of the Software indicates your agreement to the changes.

 

9. Trial Version. If you are using the Software on a trial basis, Tinnacity: (i) may offer certain features and functionality on a limited or restricted basis; and (iii) may terminate your trial at any time. If your trial is terminated or expiries, you understand and agree that your data and content, if any, may no longer be available to you. For clarity, if you decide not to purchase a full version of the Software, you may not be able to access or retrieve any of your data or content that you added or created during the trial period.

 

10. Termination. Tinnacity may immediately, in its sole discretion, and without notice terminate your use of the Software if you fail to comply with this Agreement. Upon termination you must immediately stop using the Software and any outstanding payments will become due.

12. Customer Representations. You represent and state to Tinnacity that you own or otherwise have or will have the necessary rights and consents in and relating to your data and content so that you do not and will not infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any intellectual property rights or any privacy or other rights of any third party or violate any applicable Law.

 

13. 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 payment obligation), 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. Either party may terminate this Agreement if a Force Majeure Event affecting the other party continues substantially uninterrupted for a period of thirty (30) days or more.

 

14. Miscellaneous.

In the event of any inconsistency between this Agreement and any other document(s), the terms of this Agreement shall control.

(c) Assignment. You shall not assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer any of your obligations or performance under this Agreement, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, without Tinnacity’s prior written consent. No delegation or other transfer will relieve you of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement.

(d) No Third-party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any other Person any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.

(e) Amendment and Modification; Waiver. No amendment to or modification of this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing and signed by both parties. 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 shall 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.

(f) Severability.  If any 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.

 

(g) Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Ohio 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 Ohio. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of this Agreement or the licenses granted hereunder shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Ohio in each case located in the city of Columbus and County of Franklin, and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding.​

(h) Equitable Relief. You acknowledge and agree that a breach or threatened breach by you of any of your obligations would cause Tinnacity irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and you agree that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, Tinnacity 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.
