Subscriber shall not introduce or insert into the Subscription Services any virus, Trojan horse, worm, backdoor, shutdown mechanism, malicious code, sniffer, bot, drop dead mechanism, spyware or other software, code or program that is likely or intended to affect the performance of, or which may be used to deny or facilitate unauthorized access to, the Subscription Services’ software, hardware, network, services, systems or data (“Malware”). Subscriber shall immediately notify Intel 471 if it becomes aware of any Malware. Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscription Services include software that may be subject to export, import, or use controls by governmental authorities.

3.1 Intel 471 will provide credentials to employees or contractors of Subscriber or Subscriber’s Subsidiaries whose primary job responsibilities include protecting cyber or information security solely acting for Subscriber who have contractually agreed to a duty of confidentiality regarding use of Subscriber confidential information that reasonably can be construed to include the Subscription Services (“Authorized Users”) in accordance with the terms of the Order Form. Each set of credentials is personal to a single Authorized User (who may not disclose their credentials to another person) and must be tied to a business email account owned and administered by Subscriber.
3.2 Subscriber shall be solely liable for the acts and omissions of its Subsidiaries and the Authorized Users, and any such acts and omissions that would constitute a breach if committed by Subscriber shall be deemed to be those of Subscriber under this Agreement.
4 –Intelligence Sharing:

Additionally, Subscriber shall not, nor permit its Subsidiaries, the Authorized Users, or any other person to make Intelligence available to any person (including internal teams, specific employees and foreign affiliates or branch offices) placed under any form of sanctions (i) implemented pursuant to the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 (UK); (ii) administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury (Office of Foreign Assets Control); or (iii) implemented by the Directorate-General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union (EU). This Section 4.1 shall survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of five (5) years, except that in relation to trade secrets of Intel 471 contained in the Intelligence such survival period with respect to each such trade secret shall be the lesser of (i) perpetuity, and (ii) the date upon which such trade secret enters the public domain or is otherwise publicly available.
4.2 Victim notifications that are requested through the “Responsible Disclosure Support” functionality of the Subscription Services (when included as part of the Subscription Services) will (i) only be provided to current customers of Subscriber and its Subsidiaries; (ii) contain the minimum Intelligence necessary for remediation purposes; (iii) identify Intel 471 as the source of Intelligence; and (iv) be stored together in a secure record which shall be delivered to Intel 471 upon request. Subscriber acknowledges that Intel 471 may be unable to approve victim notifications when doing so would jeopardize its operators, sources or methods, or interfere with ongoing law enforcement actions or investigations. Accordingly, victim notifications of any kind using Intelligence may not be disclosed to third parties other than Subscriber’s own representatives without Intel 471’s prior written approval, which may be withheld in Intel 471’s sole and absolute discretion.
5 - Intellectual Property:
5.1 Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that Intel 471 owns all right, title and interest in and to the Subscription Services, Documentation and Intelligence, including all source code, object code, protocols, processes, operating instructions, websites, interfaces and research methods developed for or relating to the Subscription Services, together with all (i) modifications, enhancements, revisions and changes thereto; (ii) copies, translations, compilations and derivative works thereof; and (iii) all Intellectual Property Rights (defined below) therein. “Intellectual Property Rights” means all present and future intellectual property rights which exist or may be created under the laws of any jurisdiction in the world, including, but not limited to, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, patents, trade secrets (which include source code and algorithms relating to computer software), industrial property rights, works of authorship and business methods, as well as rights in or relating to registrations, renewals, extensions, combinations, divisions, and reissuances of, and applications for, any of the foregoing. Nothing in this Agreement shall effect a transfer of ownership of any component or all of the Subscription Services, Intelligence, or Intel 471’s Intellectual Property Rights, and all rights not granted to Subscriber in this Agreement are exclusively reserved to Intel 471.
5.2 Subscriber and its Authorized Users may provide Intel 471 with opinions, suggestions or other information in response to their use of the Subscription Services, including ideas related to content presentation or potential changes to technical features (“Feedback”). Intel 471 may also collect anonymized usage data, such as execution times or error frequency (“Analytics”). Subscriber hereby irrevocably assigns to Intel 471 all right, title and interest in all Feedback and Analytics that may vest by operation of law of otherwise in Subscriber, and all such Feedback and Analytics are and shall be owned solely by Intel 471.
5.3 If Intel 471 believes that the Subscription Services may be subject to a claim of infringement or misappropriation of third-party rights, Intel 471 may, for the remainder of the Term, (i) obtain the right for Subscriber to continue using the Subscription Services; (ii) replace any components of the Subscription Services believed to be infringing, or (iii) modify the Subscription Services to be non-infringing, in each case while preserving the functionality of the Subscription Services to Subscriber’s reasonable satisfaction. If none of the foregoing actions are commercially reasonable, or if a change in law, rules, regulations or related enforcement guidelines prevent delivery of the Subscription Services, Intel 471 may terminate this Agreement upon notice to Subscriber. In the event of termination in accordance with this Section 5.3, Intel 471 will refund any prepaid fees hereunder on a pro-rata basis, based on time remaining in the Term as of the date of termination.
6 - Confidentiality:
6.1 “Confidential Information” of a Party means any information disclosed by such Party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other Party (“Receiving Party”) during the Term that is marked as confidential or that the Receiving Party should reasonably understand is proprietary or confidential to the Disclosing Party. Confidential Information of a Disclosing Party does not include information that (i) is or becomes publicly available through no fault of the Receiving Party; (ii) was available to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (iii) is received from a third party that owes no contractual or fiduciary obligations of confidentiality to the Disclosing Party; or (iv) is independently developed by the Receiving Party. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, Subscriber understands and agrees that cybersecurity-related information of any kind sourced by Intel 471 and provided to its customers or to other entities does not constitute Confidential Information of Subscriber.
6.2 During the Term and for five (5) years afterward (except with relation to trade secrets for which such survival period with respect to each such trade secret shall be the lesser of (i) perpetuity, and (ii) the date upon which such trade secret enters the public domain or is otherwise publicly available), neither Party shall disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information to a third party without the other Party’s prior written consent and shall only share same with need-to-know personnel who have undertaken confidentiality obligations no less strict than those set forth in this Agreement. If a Receiving Party is required by applicable law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, the Receiving Party may do so to the minimum extent required by law; provided, that it gives the Disclosing Party prior written notice to enable the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent the disclosure. In the event of a breach of this Section 6.2, the Parties agree that their respective remedies at law are inadequate, and each Party consents to equitable enforcement of its confidentiality obligations without the other Party being required to show irreparable harm.
7 - Limitation of Liability; Waiver of Jury Trial; Waiver of Class Action Type Relief:
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF REVENUE, PROFIT, REPUTATION OR GOODWILL WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS ASSERTED ON THE BASIS OF CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES OR THIS AGREEMENT (“CLAIMS”), REGARDLESS OF WHETHER A PARTY WAS ADVISED OF OR HAD REASON TO KNOW OF OR ACTUALLY KNEW OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. WITH THE EXCEPTION IN INDEMNITY OBLIGATIONS, NEITHER PARTY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION, SHALL EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID AND PAYABLE TO INTEL 471 BY SUBSCRIBER IN CONNECTION WITH THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES DURING THE TWELVE-MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE THAT A CLAIM ARISES. THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY. NONE OF THE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 7 SHALL APPLY TO SUBSCRIBER’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS SET FORTH HEREIN OR TO CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF BREACHES OF SECTIONS 2, 3, 4, 5.1, OR 6.
WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY. EACH PARTY HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY, IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATING TO, THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY OF THE AGREEMENTS DELIVERED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY.
WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION TYPE RELIEF. ALL CLAIMS BROUGHT BY SUBSCRIBER OR AN AUTHORIZED USER MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE SUBSCRIBER’S OR AUTHORIZED USER’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER OR PLAINTIFF IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS INTEL 471 AGREES OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE SUBSCRIBER’S OR AUTHORIZED USER’S CLAIMS.
