The Initial License Term will be referred to herein as a "License Term." Without limitation of Section 3.3, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that (i) the Licensed Software will only operate on servers on which a valid license key is installed, (ii) each license key provided by Cloudian will expire at the end of the License Term for which it is issued, after which the Licensed Software may cease to function unless a new license key is installed, (iii) it is Licensee's sole responsibility to avoid disablement of the Licensed Software by obtaining a new license key from Cloudian prior to the expiration of each License Term, installing such new license key correctly on all servers on which the Licensed Software is running, and verifying in the management user interface of the Licensed Software that the Licensed Software has been activated for the following License Term, and (iv) Cloudian may require Licensee to submit Software Usage Files (as defined below) to Cloudian covering all or part of a License Term before issuing a license key for the following License Term.
2.3 Licensed Capacity Increases.
a. If Licensee wishes to increase the Licensed Storage Capacity and Licensee has not previously entered into a Support Amendment, Licensee will execute a Support Amendment and will purchase technical support services for the Licensed Software pursuant to such Support Amendment. Such increase in the Licensed Storage Capacity will not be effective unless and until it is set forth in a Support Amendment that is duly executed by both parties.
b. If Licensee wishes to increase the Licensed Storage Capacity and Licensee has previously entered into a Support Amendment, Licensee will follow the procedures set forth in such Support Amendment.
c. Without limitation of Section 3.3, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that (i) it is Licensee's sole responsibility to request increases to the Licensed Storage Capacity to avoid being unable to store data due the Licensed Storage Capacity limitation, and Cloudian will have no liability if Licensee fails to do so, and (ii) Cloudian may require, without limitation, that Licensee submit one or more Software Usage Files (as defined below) to Cloudian together with any such request.
2.4 License Reports. The Licensed Software may generate (a) reports containing information regarding the usage of the Licensed Software, which may include the amount of Stored Data, the number of servers and other machines on which the Licensed Software is installed, and the number of processor cores and/or disk drives contained in such servers and other machines, (b) electronic files containing some or all of the foregoing information ("Audit Files"), and (c) certain logs and other reports (subsections (a)-(c), collectively, "Software Usage Data Files"). Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the information contained in any Software Usage Data Files will be deemed to be accurate and binding on Licensee unless disputed by Licensee in good faith within thirty (30) days of being made available to Licensee. Licensee will permit, and will not interfere with, the generation of any Software Usage Data Files, and Licensee will not delete, remove, move, obscure, decrypt, modify or otherwise tamper with any Software Usage Data Files.

2.5 Third Party Software. For avoidance of doubt, the license set forth in Section 2.1 does not apply to any Third Party Software, all of which is provided to Licensee pursuant to separate licensing terms.

3.2 Injunctive Relief. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that any breach of Section 3.1 by Licensee will cause irreparable injury to Cloudian and that, in addition to any other remedies that may be available at law, in equity or otherwise, Cloudian will be entitled to obtain injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach or the continuation of such breach, without the necessity of proving actual damages or posting a bond or other security.
3.3 Enforcement Mechanisms. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that (a) the Licensed Software is being licensed to Licensee with certain limitations on its use, including a limitation that it may be used only during the License Terms and a limitation on the amount of Stored Data, and (b) the Licensed Software may contain certain mechanisms to enforce such limitations, including mechanisms that disable the Licensed Software upon the expiration or termination of the License Term or prohibit storage of any Stored Data in excess of the Licensed Storage Capacity. Cloudian will have no liability of any kind in connection with Licensee's inability to use the Licensed Software in excess of such limitations due to such mechanisms or any other causes.
3.4 Records; Audit. During the period in which the License Agreement remains in effect and for a period of at least three (3) years commencing on the expiration or termination of the License Agreement, Licensee will keep and maintain complete and accurate books and records relating to this Agreement, and Cloudian will have the right, from time to time, to have an independent third party audit Licensee's books and records to verify Licensee's compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If any such audit reveals any underpayment of three percent (3%) or more of the total of all amounts payable to Cloudian in connection with any License Term, or any other material breach of this Agreement, Licensee will promptly pay to Cloudian all costs and expenses of such audit. Licensee will promptly pay Cloudian the amount of any underpayment by Licensee, and correct any other noncompliance, revealed by any such audit.
4. Community Support Resources
Cloudian may operate (but will have no obligation to operate or continue to operate) a support web site for users of the Licensed Software to post questions regarding the operation of the Licensed Software, which questions may be answered by Cloudian and other users (such web site, the "Community Support Site"). If Cloudian operates the Community Support Site, Licensee may access such web site. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that some or all questions posted by Licensee may not be answered, and that some or all answers to such questions may not be accurate or complete.
5. Technical Support Services
5.1 Support Services. Licensee will have the option to purchase technical support services for the Licensed Software from Cloudian, subject to the parties' execution of a Support Amendment.

a. Cloudian may make available to Licensee a "Powered by Cloudian" or similar logo ("Attribution Logo") in one or more sizes and in one or more formats (e.g., as HTML with an anchor tag and image link, or as a graphics file in GIF or PNG format).

CLOUDIAN MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, DOCUMENTATION, THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE OR COMMUNITY SUPPORT SITE, OR ANY OTHER PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR MATERIALS PROVIDED BY OR FOR CLOUDIAN HEREUNDER, OR THE LICENSEE STORAGE SERVICE, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY OR NONINFRINGEMENT, OR ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE.

11. General Provisions
11.1 Force Majeure. Neither party will be responsible or have any liability for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement (excluding payment obligations) to the extent such failure is due to unforeseen circumstances or to causes beyond such party's reasonable control, including acts of God, earthquake, fire, flood, embargoes, labor disputes and strikes, riots, acts of terrorism, war, and acts of civil and military authorities.
11.2 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is declared or found by a court or arbitral panel of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, (a) the parties will negotiate, in good faith, a substitute, valid and enforceable provision which most nearly effects the parties' intent in entering into this Agreement, and (b) the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
11.3 Assignment. Neither party will, or will have the right to, assign, delegate or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, whether voluntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the other party; provided, however, that either party may (without the other party's consent) assign this Agreement, together with all of its rights and obligations hereunder, to a third party that acquires (whether by asset purchase, merger or other transaction or series of transactions) all or substantially all of its business to which this Agreement relates. Any attempted assignment, delegation or other transfer prohibited by the foregoing will be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will inure to the benefit of and bind each party's successors and assigns.
11.4 Governing Law. This Agreement is to be construed in accordance with and governed by the internal laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice of law rule that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the internal laws of the State of California to the rights and duties of the parties. This Agreement shall not be governed by the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
11.5 Dispute Resolution. Any dispute relating to this Agreement (other than claims for injunctions and other equitable relief) will be settled exclusively by arbitration in San Mateo, California in accordance with the then-prevailing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator(s) will not have the power to add to, subtract from or otherwise modify any provision of this Agreement, to grant any extension or renewal of this Agreement, or to award damages or other remedies expressly prohibited by the Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party will have the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief at any time from any court of competent jurisdiction.
11.6 No Waiver. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective unless it is specified in a writing signed by an authorized representative of each party. No course of dealing, course of performance or failure of either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement in a strict or timely manner will be construed as a waiver of such provision or any other provision. No waiver or breach of any provision of this Agreement will be construed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.
11.7 Relationship of the Parties. This Agreement will not be construed as creating an agency, partnership, joint venture or any other form of association between the parties, and the parties will at all times be and remain independent contractors. Except as expressly agreed by the parties in writing, neither party will have any right or authority, express or implied, to assume or create any obligation of any kind, or to make any representation or warranty, on behalf of the other party or to bind the other party in any respect whatsoever.
11.8 Notices. Unless otherwise set forth in this Agreement, any notice required or permitted hereunder will be deemed to be a valid notice for the purposes of this Agreement only if it (a) is in writing, (b) makes reference to this Agreement, and (c) is delivered in person, by reputable courier, or mailed by certified or registered mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, in each case to the address of the intended recipient specified on the first page of this Agreement (or to such other address as may be designated by the intended recipient to the other party in accordance with this Section 11.8). Each such notice will be deemed given when received by the intended recipient.
11.9 Interpretation. The captions and headings used in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only, do not form a part of this Agreement and will not be used in any way to construe or interpret this Agreement. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, all of which, taken together, will be regarded as one and the same instrument. This Agreement will be deemed to have been drafted by all parties; no provision will be construed against either party by reason of the fact that it was drafted by such party. The words "include" and "including" will not be construed as terms of limitation and will therefore mean "including but not limited to" and "including without limitation."
11.10 Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement contains the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and merge and supersede any and all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings and communications between the parties, whether oral or written, with respect to such subject matter. This Agreement cannot be modified or amended except in a writing signed by both parties. All orders placed by Licensee with Cloudian in connection with this Agreement will be governed by and subject to the terms of this Agreement. No terms or conditions contained in any purchase order or other document submitted by Licensee will in any way modify or add to the terms of this Agreement, and any such terms or conditions that are in any way inconsistent with or additional to the terms of this Agreement are hereby rejected by Cloudian and will have no force or effect.
