F. Trial Use of the Services
If specified in the ordering document, you may order certain services for trial, nonproduction purposes subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement. Services acquired for trial purposes are provided “as is” and MC Software does not offer any warranties for such services.
You agree to defend, indemnify, save and hold MC Software harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims; including reasonable attorneys fees asserted against MC, its agents, servants, officers, employees and assigns, that may arise from any service provided or performed or agreed to be performed by you, our agents, employees, or assigns.
You agree to defend, indemnify, save and hold MC Software harmless from any liabilities arising out of any financial injury or otherwise to any person caused by the improper use of MC Software’s services provided to you.
If a third party makes a claim against either you or MC Software (“Recipient” which may refer to you or MC Software depending upon which party received the Material), that any information, design, specification, instruction, software, service, data, or material (“Material”) furnished by either you or MC Software (“Provider” which may refer to you or MC Software depending on which party provided the Material), and used by the Recipient infringes its intellectual property rights, the Provider, at its sole cost and expense, will
defend the Recipient against the claim and indemnify the Recipient from the damages, liabilities, costs and expenses awarded by the court to the third party claiming infringement or the settlement agreed to by the Provider, if the Recipient does the following:
- notifies the Provider promptly in writing, not later than 30 days after the Recipient receives notice of the claim (or sooner if required by applicable law);
- gives the Provider sole control of the defense and any settlement negotiations; and
- gives the Provider the information, authority, and assistance the Provider needs to defend against or settle the claim.
If the Provider believes or it is determined that any of the Material may have violated a third party’s intellectual property rights, the Provider may choose to either modify the Material to be non-infringing (while substantially preserving its utility or functionality) or obtain a license to allow for continued use, or if these alternatives are not commercially reasonable, the Provider may end the license for, and require return of, the applicable Material and refund any unused, prepaid fees the Recipient may have paid to the other party for such Material. If such return materially affects MC Software’s ability to meet its obligations under the relevant order, then MC Software may, at its option and upon 30 days prior written notice, terminate the order. The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient if the Recipient alters the Material or uses it outside the scope of use identified in the Provider’s user documentation or services policies or if the Recipient uses a version of the Materials which has been superseded, if the infringement claim could have been avoided by using an unaltered current version of the Material which was provided to the Recipient. The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon (i) any information, design, specification, instruction, software, data, or material not furnished by the Provider, or (ii) any Material from a third party portal or other external source that is accessible to you within or from the service (e.g., a third party Web page accessed via a hyperlink). MC Software will not indemnify you to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon the combination of any Material with any products or services not provided by MC Software. MC Software will not indemnify you for infringement caused by your actions against any third party if the services as delivered to you and used in accordance with the terms of the agreement would not otherwise infringe any third party intellectual property rights. MC Software will not indemnify you for any infringement claim that is based on: (1) a patent that you were made aware of prior to the effective date of the agreement (pursuant to a claim, demand, or notice); or (2) your actions prior to the effective date of the agreement. This section provides the parties’ exclusive remedy for any infringement claims or damages.
H. Client Support Services
MC Software provides complete Client Support services that include on-site training, e-mail and phone support in answering operating questions, custom programming, specialized software and hardware support, and general trouble-shooting activities. Such services are typically billed on an hourly or project basis, as determined by current company policies and rates in effect at the time of such service.
I. End of Agreement; Termination of Agreement With and Without Cause
Services provided under this agreement shall be provided for the period defined in the ordering document unless earlier terminated in accordance with the agreement.
