To the maximum extent permitted by law, Developer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Platform Science, its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, contractors, and agents from and against any and all claims, actions, suits or proceedings, as well as any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or accruing from (i) Developer’s use of the Platform Science SDK, including use of the Platform Science SDK with any system, application, or other software where the use or failure of such system, application, or other software can reasonably be expected to threaten or result in personal injury, death, or catastrophic loss including, for example, use in connection with any navigation application, (ii) any application or other software Developer develops on the Platform Science SDK that violates any third party right, including without limitation any right of privacy or intellectual property rights, (iii) any non-compliance by Developer of the License Agreement, (iv) Developer’s use of the SDK, or (v) Developer’s negligence or willful misconduct. Developer will not settle any claim, and no settlement of a claim will be binding on Platform Science, without Platform Science’s prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
13. Changes to the License Agreement
Platform Science may revise and update this License Agreement from time to time in its sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when Platform Science posts them or otherwise provides them to Developer and shall apply to all access to and use of the SDK thereafter. Developer’s continued use of the SDK following issuance of a revised License Agreement means that Developer accepts and agrees to the changes.
14. General Legal Terms
14.1 The License Agreement constitutes the whole legal agreement between Developer and Platform Science and governs Developer’s use of the Platform Science SDK (excluding any services which Platform Science may provide to Developer under a separate written agreement), and completely replaces any prior agreements between Developer and Platform Science in relation to the Platform Science SDK. Any amendment or waiver under this License Agreement must be in writing and signed by representatives of both parties.
14.2 Developer agrees that the failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision of this License Agreement will not affect its right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor will the waiver by either party of a breach of any provisions of this License Agreement be taken or deemed to be a waiver of the provision itself.
14.3 If any provision of this License Agreement is unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or is so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity will not render this License Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions.
14.4 There shall be third party beneficiaries to the License Agreement.
14.5 EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. THE PLATFORM SCIENCE SDK AND SDK HARDWARE ARE SUBJECT TO U.S. EXPORT CONTROL LAWS AND MAY BE SUBJECT TO THE EXPORT OR IMPORT REGULATIONS IN OTHER COUNTRIES. DEVELOPER AGREES TO COMPLY WITH ALL SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLICABLE TO IT AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT DEVELOPER HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY TO OBTAIN ANY LICENSES FOR EXPORT, RE-EXPORT OR IMPORT AS MAY BE REQUIRED. DEVELOPER MAY NOT DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY EXPORT OR TRANSFER THE PLATFORM SCIENCE SDK AND/OR SDK HARDWARE TO ANY COUNTRY IN WHICH THE TRANSMISSION IS PROHIBITED BY ANY APPLICABLE STATUTE OR REGULATION OR TO ANY INDIVIDUAL ON THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF TREASURY’S OFFICE OF FOREIGN ASSET CONTROL LIST OF SPECIALLY DESIGNATED NATIONALS OR ANY COUNTRY SUBJECT TO A UNITED STATES TRADE EMBARGO. DEVELOPER’S FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS PROVISION SHALL BE CONSIDERED A MATERIAL BREACH OF THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT.
14.6 The License Agreement may not be assigned or transferred by Developer without the prior written approval of Platform Science, and any attempted assignment without such approval will be void. Developer shall not delegate Developer’s responsibilities or obligations under the License Agreement without the prior written approval of Platform Science.
14.7 The parties are entering into this License Agreement as independent contracting parties. Neither party will have, or hold itself out as having, any right or authority to incur any obligation on behalf of the other party without the other's prior written consent. This License Agreement will not be construed to create an association, joint venture or partnership between the parties or to impose any partnership liability upon any party.
14.8 This License Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Any legal action or proceeding arising under this License Agreement will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in San Diego, California and the parties hereby consent to personal jurisdiction and venue therein. Notwithstanding this, to the extent that either party has breached or has indicated its intention to breach this License Agreement in any manner that violates or which may violate the other party’s intellectual property rights, or which may cause continuing or irreparable harm to the other party (the “Non-Breaching Party”), the Non-Breaching Party may immediately seek injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction without the posting of a bond, proof of damages or other similar requirement.
