B. Taxes. Other than federal and state net income taxes imposed on Argyle, Customer will bear all taxes, duties, and other governmental charges relating to the Services.

9. Term and Termination

A. Term. The term of this Agreement will commence on the effective date of the first Service Order between the parties and will continue until terminated in accordance with this Agreement (the “Term”).

B. Termination for Convenience. Either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason upon 30 days’ prior written notice to the other.

C. Termination for Breach or Insolvency. Either party may terminate this Agreement or a Service Order, effective upon written notice to the other party, if the other party materially breaches this Agreement or a Service Order and such breach is incapable of cure, or (if such breach capable of cure) the breaching party does not cure such breach within 30 days of receiving notice of it. Argyle may terminate or suspend this Agreement or any part of it immediately upon written notice to Customer without a cure period if Customer breaches any of the terms of this Agreement relating to Argyle’s Intellectual Property Rights or Confidential Information. Either party may terminate this Agreement, effective immediately upon written notice, if the other party files, or has filed against it, a petition for voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or pursuant to any other insolvency law, makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or applies for, or consents to, the appointment of a trustee, receiver, or custodian for a substantial part of its property.

D. Effect of Termination. Expiration or termination of this Agreement will automatically terminate all active Service Orders, but termination of a single Service Order will not result in termination of this Agreement or any other Service Orders. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement or a Service Order all rights and licenses granted under this Agreement or the applicable Service Order will terminate except as otherwise expressly described. Either party’s termination of this Agreement is without prejudice to any other remedies it may have at law or in equity, and does not relieve either party of breaches occurring prior to the effective date of termination. Neither party will be liable to the other for damages arising solely as a result of terminating this Agreement in accordance with its terms.

If Customer terminates this Agreement in accordance with Section 9.C (Termination for Breach or Insolvency), Customer will pay in full for any terminated Service Orders any undisputed Fees actually incurred up to and including the last day on which access to the Services are provided. If this Agreement expires or is terminated for any other reason, within 10 days after such expiration or termination, Customer will pay Argyle all remaining undisputed Fees owed under any terminated Service Orders.

A. Defense. Each party (the “Indemnifying Party”) will defend the other party (the “Indemnified Party”) from any actual or threatened third-party claim, proceeding, or suit (each, a “Claim”) arising out of or based on the Indemnifying Party’s breach of Section 10 (Warranties and Disclaimer).

  • grant the Indemnifying Party full and complete control over the defense and settlement of the Claim;

  • provide assistance in connection with the defense and settlement of the Claim as the Indemnifying Party may reasonably request; and

  • comply with any settlement or court order made in connection with the Claim. The Indemnifying Party will not defend or settle any Claim without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent (which will not be unreasonably withheld, delayed, or conditioned). The Indemnified Party may participate in the defense of the Claim at its own expense and with counsel of its own choosing, but the Indemnifying Party will have sole control over the defense of the Claim.

  • all damages, costs, and attorneys’ fees finally awarded against the Indemnified Party in any Claim;

  • all amounts that the Indemnifying Party agrees to pay to any third party to settle any Claim.

  • any modification of the Argyle Platform, API, Documentation, or Services not made or authorized in writing by Argyle.

12. Limitations of Liability

A. Exclusion of Damages. Neither party will be liable to the other party for any consequential, incidental, special, or exemplary damages arising out of or related to this Agreement, including lost profits or loss of business, even if such party is apprised of the likelihood of such damages occurring.

B. Damages Cap. Argyle’s total liability of all kinds arising out of or related to this Agreement (including warranty claims), regardless of the forum and regardless of whether any action or claim is based on contract, tort, or otherwise, will not exceed the total amount paid by Customer to Argyle during the 12 months immediately preceding the claim (determined as of the date of any final judgment in an action).

C. Basis of the Bargain. Each provision of this Agreement that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is to allocate the risks of this Agreement between the parties. This allocation is reflected in the pricing offered by Argyle to Customer and is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of this Agreement. The limitations in this Section 12 (Limitations of Liability) will apply notwithstanding the failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy in this Agreement.

D. Applicability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of damages. This Section 12 (Limitations of Liability) will apply to Customer solely to the extent permitted by Applicable Law.

13. General

A. Compliance with Applicable Law. Each party will comply with all Applicable Law in connection with exercising its rights or performing its obligations under this Agreement, including applicable export laws. During the Term, if Customer is or becomes either a “consumer reporting agency” or a “furnisher” of information to consumer reporting agencies under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), or if Customer has reason to believe Argyle’s provision of the Services would constitute a “consumer report” under the FCRA:

  • Customer will immediately notify Argyle;

  • the parties will discuss in good faith any additional requirements imposed by Applicable Law; and

  • if the parties are unable to agree on whether or how to comply with Applicable Law, either party may immediately terminate this Agreement upon notice to the other party.

E. Injunctive Relief. If either party breaches Sections 5 (Ownership) or 7 (Confidentiality), the other party may suffer irreparable harm, and monetary damages may be inadequate to compensate the non-breaching party. Accordingly, either party may, in addition to any other remedies available to it at law or in equity, seek injunctive or other equitable relief in response to any such breach.

F. Further Assurances. Each party will execute and deliver any documents or instruments, and take any further actions that are reasonably required, to provide the other party the full benefits and rights described in this Agreement.

I. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement or portion of a provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of this Agreement will remain in effect.

J. No Waiver. Neither party will be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under this Agreement.

Each party as licensee will have and may fully exercise all rights available to a licensee under the Code, including under Section 365(n) or its successors.

N. Relationship. The parties are independent contractors of each other. Each party is responsible for instructing and managing its employees and personnel. This Agreement does not create any agency, partnership, or joint venture relationship between the parties.
