(A) under Intel’s copyrights, to:
(1) reproduce and execute the Software only for use with Intel Products; this license does not include the right to sublicense, and may be exercised only within Your facilities by Your employees;
(2) distribute the unmodified Software only in Object Code, only for use with Intel Products; this license includes the right to sublicense, but only the rights to execute the Software and only under Intel’s End User Software License Agreement attached as Attachment B, without the right to further sublicense;

(C) Unless specifically set forth in Section 2.1, the parties agree that they have the mutual intention that Intel grants You no other license or right to any Intel intellectual property, expressly or by implication, estoppel, statute or otherwise. Intel reserves all rights that it does not expressly grant to You in this Agreement. You agree that you have no right to make, sell, or modify the Software, or combine the Software with other items or to use any such combination. You are only licensed to the Licensed Patent Claims, and no other patent claims, even if such claims are part of the same patent as Licensed Patent Claims. You further agree that, as an essential basis of the bargain, (i) the consideration from You under this Agreement covers only the limited rights expressly granted to You in Section 2.1 and that any other licenses or rights would require a separate license and additional consideration, and (ii) nothing in this Agreement requires or will be treated to require Intel to grant any a separate license. You also acknowledge that there are substantial uses of the Software in its original, unmodified, and uncombined form.
(A) All rights, title and interest in and to the Software and Documentation are and will remain the exclusive property of Intel. Unless expressly permitted under Section 2.1(A), You will not, and will not allow any third party to:

(2) modify, adapt, enhance, disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer, change or create Derivative Works from the Software; or
(3) use the Software to process the data of, or make the Software available online for the use of, third parties.
(B) No right or license is granted or implied under any of Intel’s copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade names, service marks or other intellectual property rights to use the Software or Documentation or to license or authorize others to use the Software or Documentation beyond the rights expressly set forth in this Agreement.
(C) Except as expressly permitted under Section 2.1, You will not allow the Software to be accessed or used by third parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Your authorized consultants and subcontractors may access the Software where the access is incidental to their performing services on Your behalf consistent with the license granted to You under this Agreement, provided You bind those consultants and subcontractors to the confidentiality and other obligations imposed on You under this Agreement and You are fully liable to Intel for the actions and inaction of those consultants and subcontractors.
2.3 Copies. In addition to the number of copies permissible under Section 2.1(A)(1), You may make a reasonable number of copies of the Software for archival purposes or for use as a back-up when the Software is not operational. You must copy all copyright legends, trademarks, trade names and other legends and identification when You copy the Software and Documentation. You will maintain records of the number of copies currently in Your possession or control, and will provide copies of those records to Intel upon request.
2.4 Open Source Software. If the Software includes Open Source Software, that Open Source Software is licensed under the applicable Open Source Software license agreement identified in the Open Source Software comments in the applicable source code file(s) and file header provided with the Software. Where applicable, the Documentation may contain additional detail. With respect to the Open Source Software, nothing in this Agreement limits any rights under, or grants rights that supersede, the terms of the applicable Open Source Software license agreement. You will not subject the Software or Documentation, in whole or in part, to any license obligations associated with Open Source Software, including combining the Software or Documentation with Open Source Software in a manner that subjects Intel, or any portion of the Software, to any license obligations of the Open Source Software.
3. FEES; ROYALTIES; TAXES
4.2 Termination. Intel may terminate this Agreement:

· immediately, if You breach any provision of Sections 2 or 7; or
· immediately, if You become insolvent or make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or a trustee or receiver is appointed for You or for a substantial part of Your assets, or bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency proceedings are instituted by or against You.

To the extent You provide Intel with Feedback, You grant to Intel and Intel accepts, a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable license, with the right to sublicense, under Your intellectual property rights to the Feedback to incorporate or otherwise use Feedback as provided by You to Intel. “Feedback” means Your requirements, inputs, comments, responses, opinions, feedback and errata, whether oral or written, concerning the Software and Documentation and Your technical system requirements for Intel to include in the Software definition, design or validation.
6.1 Services. Intel has no obligation to maintain or support the Software or Documentation.

7. NO PUBLICITY
7.1 No Publicity. You may not use Intel’s name, or the names of any Intel employees, in any publication, advertisement or other announcement, without Intel’s prior written consent in each instance.
(A) You will defend, at Your own expense, any legal action brought against Intel to the extent that it is based on an Indemnified Claim, which is any claims or allegations arising from or relating to Your breach of any provision of this Agreement including, but not limited to, a breach of Section 2;
(B) You will pay any costs and damages finally awarded against Intel that are attributable to any Indemnified Claim or that Intel incurs through settlement of an Indemnified Claim, but will not be responsible for any compromise that Intel makes or expense that Intel incurs without Your consent. The defense and payments are subject to the condition that Intel gives You prompt written notice of the Indemnified Claim, allows You to direct the defense and settlement of the Indemnified Claim, and cooperates with You as necessary for defense and settlement of the Indemnified Claim.
Disclaimer. Intel makes no warranties to You with respect to the Software or any Support, service, advice, or assistance furnished under this Agreement, and no warranties of any kind, whether written, oral, implied or statutory, including warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement or arising from course of dealing or usage in trade will apply.
(A) Intel’s cumulative liability to You for all claims of any kind resulting from Intel’s performance or breach of this Agreement or the Software furnished under this Agreement will not exceed the Fees actually received by Intel from You under this Agreement for the Software that is the subject of the claim or $1,000, if the Software was provided at no charge to You, regardless of whether Intel has been advised of the possibility of those damages or whether any remedy set forth in this Agreement fails of its essential purpose or otherwise. This limitation of liability is cumulative and not per incident; the existence of more than one claim will not increase the limit.
(B) Intel will not be liable for costs of procurement of substitutes, loss of profits, loss of use, interruption of business, or for any other special, consequential, punitive or incidental damages, however caused, whether for breach of warranty, contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, irrespective of whether Intel has advance notice of the possibility of such damages. The limitation of liability set forth in this Section 10 is a fundamental basis of this Agreement; and each Party understands and agrees that the other would not have entered into this Agreement without the limitation of liability.

Without limitation of the foregoing, if there is a sale of substantially all of Your assets, a merger, a re-organization, or a change in control of 50% or more of Your equity, no transfer or assignment (including, without limitation, an assignment by operation of law) of this Agreement may be made without the prior written consent of Intel.
11.5 U.S. Government Contract Provisions. This Agreement is for Your temporary license of Software. No Government procurement regulation or contract clauses or provision will be considered a part of any transaction between the Parties under this Agreement unless its inclusion is required by statute, or mutually agreed upon in writing by the Parties in connection with a specific transaction. The technical data and computer software covered by this license is a “Commercial Item,” as that term is defined by the FAR 2.101 (48 C.F.R. 2.101) and is “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as specified under FAR 12.212 (48 C.F.R. 12.212) or DFARS 227.7202 (48 C.F.R. 227.7202), as applicable.

Use for or on behalf of the U.S. Government is permitted only if the party acquiring or using this Software is properly authorized by an appropriate U.S. Government official. This use by or for the U.S. Government clause is in lieu of, and supersedes, any other FAR, DFARS, or other provision that addresses Government rights in the computer Software or documentation covered by this license. All copyright licenses granted to the U.S. Government are coextensive with the technical data and computer Software licenses granted in this Agreement. The U.S. Government will only have the right to reproduce, distribute, perform, display, and prepare Derivative Works as needed to implement those rights.
11.6 Force Majeure. Except for Your obligations under Section 3, neither Party will be liable to the other Party for delay in performing its obligations, or failure to perform any obligations, under this Agreement, if the delay or failure results from circumstances beyond the control of that Party including, but not limited to, any acts of God, governmental act, fire, explosion, accident, war, armed conflict, terrorist act or civil commotion. If there is a delay, the time for performance will be extended by the amount of time lost by reason of the delay; provided, however, should an event of force majeure described in this Section delay either Party’s performance in any material respect for a period of more than 90 days, then the other Party will have the option, upon giving written notice, to terminate this Agreement or the relevant portion of this Agreement affected by the delay.
11.7 Waiver and Severability. If either Party fails to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement, or to exercise any election of options provided in this Agreement, that failure will not constitute a waiver of that provision or option, or affect the validity of this Agreement or any part of this Agreement, or the right of the waiving Party to enforce subsequently each and every provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of the Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
(A) The procedural and substantive laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A., without regard to its conflicts of laws principles, will govern this Agreement. This Agreement is prepared and executed and will be interpreted in the English language only, and no translation of the Agreement into another language will have any effect.

Each Party irrevocably submits to the personal jurisdiction of those courts and irrevocably waives all objections to such venue.
