14. Confidential Information.
(a) Definition. “Confidential Information” means information or materials disclosed by one party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) that are not generally available to the public and which, due to their character and nature, a reasonable person under like circumstances would treat as confidential, including, without limitation, financial, marketing, and pricing information, trade secrets, know-how, proprietary tools, knowledge and methodologies, the Software (in source code and/or object code form), information or benchmark test results regarding the functionality and performance of the Software, any Software license keys provided to Customer, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Reporting and registration information provided by Customer to SonicWall under this Agreement shall be deemed SonicWall Confidential Information. Confidential Information shall not include information or materials that (i) are generally known to the public, other than as a result of an unpermitted disclosure by the Receiving Party after the date that Customer accepts the Agreement (the “Effective Date”); (ii) were known to the Receiving Party without an obligation of confidentiality prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party; (iii) the Receiving Party lawfully received from a third party without that third party’s breach of agreement or obligation of trust; (iv) are protected by SonicWall in accordance with its obligations under the Protected Data Section below, or (v) are or were independently developed by the Receiving Party without access to or use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
(b) Obligations. The Receiving Party shall (i) not disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any third party, except as permitted in subsection (c) below and (ii) protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use or disclosure by exercising at least the same degree of care it uses to protect its own similar information, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care. The Receiving Party shall promptly notify the Disclosing Party of any known unauthorized use or disclosure of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and will cooperate with the Disclosing Party in any litigation brought by the Disclosing Party against third parties to protect its proprietary rights. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section shall apply to all disclosures of the parties’ Confidential Information as of the Effective Date, whether or not specifically arising from a party’s performance under this Agreement.
(c) Permitted Disclosures. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information without the Disclosing Party’s prior written consent to any of its Affiliates, directors, officers, employees, consultants, contractors or representatives (collectively, the “Representatives”), but only to those Representatives that (i) have a “need to know” in order to carry out the purposes of this Agreement or to provide professional advice in connection with this Agreement, (ii) are legally bound to the Receiving Party to protect information such as the Confidential Information under terms at least as restrictive as those provided herein, and (iii) have been informed by the Receiving Party of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and the requirements regarding restrictions on disclosure and use as set forth in this Section. The Receiving Party shall be liable to the Disclosing Party for the acts or omissions of any Representatives to which it discloses Confidential Information which, if done by the Receiving Party, would be a breach of this Agreement. Additionally, it shall not be a breach of this Section for the Receiving Party to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as may be required by operation of law or legal process, provided that the Receiving Party provides prior notice of such disclosure to the Disclosing Party unless expressly prohibited from doing so by a court, arbitration panel or other legal authority of competent jurisdiction.
15. Protected Data. For purposes of this Section, “Protected Data” means any information or data that is provided by Customer to SonicWall during this Agreement that alone or together with any other information relates to an identified or identifiable natural person or data considered to be personal data as defined under Privacy Laws, and “Privacy Laws” means any applicable law, statute, directive or regulation regarding privacy, data protection, information security obligations and/or the processing of Protected Data. Except as permitted herein or to the extent required by Privacy Laws or legal process, SonicWall shall implement reasonable technical and organizational measures to prevent unauthorized disclosure of or access to Protected Data by third parties and shall only store and process Protected Data as may be required to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. If SonicWall complies with Customer’s written instructions with respect to the Protected Data, SonicWall shall have no liability to Customer for any breach of this Section resulting from such compliance. SonicWall shall promptly notify Customer of any disclosure of or access to the Protected Data by a third party in material breach of this Section and shall cooperate with Customer to reasonably remediate the effects of such disclosure or access. SonicWall further affirms to Customer that it has adequate agreements in place incorporating the EU standard contractual clauses for the transfer of Protected Data from the European Union (“EU”) to a country outside the EU. Customer hereby (i) represents that it has the right to send the Protected Data to SonicWall, (ii) consents for SonicWall to store and use the Protected Data worldwide for the sole purpose of performing its obligations under this Agreement, (iii) agrees that the Protected Data may be accessed and used by SonicWall and its Representatives worldwide as may be needed to support SonicWall’s standard business operations, and (iv) agrees that Protected Data consisting of Customer contact information (e.g., email addresses, names) provided as part of Maintenance Services may be sent to SonicWall’s third party service providers as part of SonicWall’s services improvement processes.
16. Compliance Verification. Customer agrees to maintain and use systems and procedures to accurately track, document, and report its installations, acquisitions and usage of Software. Such systems and procedures shall be sufficient to determine if Customer’s deployment of the Software or, if applicable, use of the Software under a SaaS Software License is within the quantities, terms, and maintenance releases to which it is entitled. SonicWall or its designated auditing agent shall have the right to audit Customer's deployment of the Software. Any such audits shall be scheduled at least ten (10) days in advance and shall be conducted during normal business hours remotely or at Customer's facilities. Customer shall provide its full cooperation and assistance with such audit and provide access to the applicable records and computers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, as part of the audit, SonicWall may request, and Customer agrees to provide, a written report, signed by an authorized representative, listing Customer's then current deployment of the Software and/or the number of individuals that have accessed and used Software as well as any other information as may be requested by SonicWall. If Customer's deployment or use of the Software is found to be greater than its purchased entitlement to such Software, Customer will be invoiced for the over-deployed quantities at SonicWall’s then current list price without any deduction of discounts, rebates, incentives or other amounts plus the applicable Maintenance Services and applicable over-deployment fees. All such amounts shall be payable in accordance with this Agreement. Additionally, if the unpaid fees exceed five percent (5%) of the fees paid for the applicable Software, then Customer shall also pay SonicWall's reasonable costs of conducting the audit. The requirements of this Section shall survive expiration or termination of this Agreement.
17. SaaS Provisions.
(a) Data. Customer may store data on the systems to which it is provided access in connection with its use of a SaaS Software License (the “SaaS Environment”). SonicWall may periodically make back-up copies of Customer data, however, such back-ups are not intended to replace Customer’s obligation to maintain regular data backups or redundant data archives. Customer is solely responsible for collecting, inputting and updating all Customer data stored in the SaaS Environment, and for ensuring that it does not (i) knowingly create and store data that actually or potentially infringes or misappropriates the copyright, trade secret, trademark or other intellectual property right of any third party, or (ii) use the SaaS Environment for purposes that would reasonably be seen as obscene, defamatory, harassing, offensive or malicious. SonicWall shall have the right to delete all Customer data stored in connection with the use of the SaaS License following any termination or expiration of this Agreement or any license granted hereunder. Customer represents and warrants that it has obtained all rights, permissions and consents necessary to use and transfer all Customer and/or third party data within and outside of the country in which Customer or the applicable Customer Affiliate is located (including providing adequate disclosures and obtaining legally sufficient consents from Customer’s employees, customers, agents, and contractors). If Customer transmits data to a third-party website or other provider that is linked to or made accessible by the SaaS Software License, Customer will be deemed to have given its consent to SonicWall enabling such transmission and SonicWall shall have no liability to Customer in connection with any claims by a third party in connection with such transmission.
(b) Conduct. In connection with the use of Software, Customer may not (i) attempt to use or gain unauthorized access to SonicWall’s or to any third-party's networks or equipment; (ii) permit other individuals or entities to copy the Software; (iii) provide unauthorized access to or use of any Software or the associated access credentials; (iv) attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of the Software, the SaaS Environment, or a system, account or network of SonicWall or any of SonicWall’s customers or suppliers; (v) interfere or attempt to interfere with service to any user, host or network; (vi) engage in fraudulent, offensive or illegal activity of any nature or intentionally engage in any activity that infringes the intellectual property rights or privacy rights of any individual or third party; (vii) transmit unsolicited bulk or commercial messages; (viii) intentionally distribute worms, Trojan horses, viruses, corrupted files or any similar items; (ix) restrict, inhibit, or otherwise interfere with the ability of any other person, regardless of intent, purpose or knowledge, to use or enjoy the SaaS Software (except for tools with safety and security functions); or (x) restrict, inhibit, interfere with or otherwise disrupt or cause a performance degradation to any SonicWall (or SonicWall supplier) facilities used to provide the SaaS Environment. Customer shall cooperate with SonicWall’s reasonable investigation of SaaS Environment outages, security issues, and any suspected breach of this Section, and shall, at its expense, defend SonicWall and its Affiliates from any claim, suit, or action by a third party (a “Third Party Claim”) alleging harm to such third party caused by Customer’s breach of any of the provisions of this Section. Additionally, Customer shall pay any judgments or settlements reached in connection with the Third Party Claim as well as SonicWall’s costs of responding to the Third Party Claim.
(c) Suspension. SonicWall may suspend Customer’s use or access to Software (a) if so required by law enforcement or legal process, (b) in the event of an imminent security risk to SonicWall or its customers, or (c) if continued use would subject SonicWall to material liability. SonicWall shall make commercially reasonable efforts under the circumstances to provide prior notice to Customer of any such suspension.
(a) Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that would require the application of laws of a different state. Any action seeking enforcement of this Agreement or any provision hereof shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in the Santa Clara County, California. Each party hereby agrees to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts. The parties agree that neither the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, nor the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) shall apply to this Agreement, regardless of the states in which the parties do business or are incorporated.
(b) Assignment. Except as otherwise set forth herein, Customer shall not, in whole or part, assign or transfer any part of this Agreement, the licenses granted under this Agreement or any other rights, interest or obligations hereunder, whether voluntarily, by contract, by operation of law or by merger (whether that party is the surviving or disappearing entity), stock or asset sale, consolidation, dissolution, through government action or order, or otherwise without the prior written consent of SonicWall. Any attempted transfer or assignment by Customer that is not permitted by this Agreement shall be null and void.
(c) Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible by law to affect the intent of the parties and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the terms of this Agreement that limit, disclaim, or exclude warranties, remedies or damages are intended by the parties to be independent and remain in effect despite the failure or unenforceability of an agreed remedy. The parties have relied on the limitations and exclusions set forth in this Agreement in determining whether to enter into it.
(d) Use by U.S. Government. The Software is a “commercial item” under FAR 12.201. Consistent with FAR section 12.212 and DFARS section 227.7202, any use, modification, reproduction, release, performance, display, disclosure or distribution of the Software or Documentation by the U.S. government is prohibited except as expressly permitted by the terms of this Agreement. In addition, when Customer is a U.S. government entity, the language in Subsection (ii) of the Infringement Indemnity Section of this Agreement and the Injunctive Relief Section of this Agreement shall not be applicable.
(e) Notices. All notices provided hereunder shall be in writing and may be delivered by email, in the case of SonicWall to
and in the case of Customer to the email address SonicWall has on file for Customer. All notices, requests, demands or communications shall be deemed effective upon delivery in accordance with this paragraph.
(f) Disclosure of Customer Status. SonicWall may include Customer in its listing of customers and, upon written consent by Customer, announce Customer's selection of SonicWall in its marketing communications.
(g) Waiver. Performance of any obligation required by a party hereunder may be waived only by a written waiver signed by an authorized representative of the other party, which waiver shall be effective only with respect to the specific obligation described therein. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
(h) Injunctive Relief. Customer acknowledges and agrees that money damages may be an inadequate remedy for SonicWall in the event of a breach or threaten breach of this Agreement, including but not limited to a breach of the Software License, Restrictions or Confidential Information Sections of this Agreement. Therefore, SonicWall shall be entitled to seek preliminary or immediate injunctive relief (including an order prohibiting Customer from taking actions in breach of such provisions), without limiting and in addition to its other rights and remedies and without the need for posting bond, and that specific performance as may be appropriate to preserve all of SonicWall’s rights. All rights and remedies afforded SonicWall by law shall be cumulative and not exclusive.
(i) Force Majeure. Each party will be excused from performance for any period during which, and to the extent that, it is prevented from performing any obligation or service as a result of causes beyond its reasonable control, and without its fault or negligence, including without limitation, acts of God, strikes, lockouts, riots, acts of war, epidemics, communication line failures, and power failures. For added certainty, this Section shall not operate to change, delete, or modify any of the parties’ obligations under this Agreement (e.g., payment), but rather only to excuse a delay in the performance of such obligations.
(j) Equal Opportunity. SonicWall is a federal contractor and Affirmative Action employer (M/F/D/V) as required by the Equal Opportunity clause C.F.R. § 60-741.5(a).
(k) Headings. Headings in this Agreement are for convenience only and do not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. This Agreement will not be construed either in favor of or against one party or the other, but rather in accordance with its fair meaning. When the term “including” is used in this Agreement it will be construed in each case to mean “including, but not limited to.”
(l) Legal Fees. If any legal action is brought to enforce any rights or obligations under this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may be awarded.
(m) Entire Agreement. Each party acknowledges that in entering into the Agreement it has not relied on and shall have no right or remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made negligently or innocently) other than as expressly set out in the Agreement. Unless Customer has entered into another written agreement with respect to the Product which has been signed by Customer and an authorized representative of SonicWall and which conflicts with the provisions of this Agreement, Customer agrees that this Agreement supersedes all prior written or oral agreements, warranties or representations with respect to use of the Product. If any provision (or part thereof) of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions (including other valid parts within the effected term) will remain effective. Customer understands and agrees that SonicWall may modify or amend this Agreement at any time without notice. Customer is responsible for ensuring it is aware of the most current terms and conditions that apply to the Products and use thereof. Customer acknowledges that it has read, understands and agrees to be bound by this Agreement and that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between Customer and SonicWall regarding the Product(s).
