Subject to this license, RelSci owns and will retain all right, title and interest in and to such deliverables.

All Fees are non-cancellable and non-refundable.

Licensee is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with access to and use of the Services by Licensee and Authorized Users. If RelSci has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Licensee is responsible under this Section 4(c), then RelSci will invoice Licensee and Licensee will pay that amount unless Licensee provides RelSci with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.

Except as expressly authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, the Receiving Party will limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its affiliates’ employees, contractors or agents who need such access to perform obligations under this Agreement and who agree to abide by the terms set forth in this Section 5.

THESE LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS REPRESENT A REASONABLE ALLOCATION OF RISK UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
(b) Section 8(a) will not apply to Licensee’s or any Authorized User’s actual or alleged infringement of RelSci’s intellectual property or other proprietary rights or breach of sections 2(a) and (b) and 5 of this Agreement.
(a) Licensee . If a third party asserts a claim (each, a “Third Party Claim”) against RelSci or any of its affiliates, officers, directors, managers, members, employees or contractors (each, an “RelSci Indemnitee”) alleging that (i) Licensee or any Authorized User has breached Section 2(b) of this Agreement; or (ii) any Data infringes any third party intellectual property or other proprietary right, then, in each case, Licensee will defend the RelSci Indemnitee from the Third Party Claim and hold such party harmless from all damages finally awarded or settlements entered into with respect to the Third Party Claim . This Section 9(a) states Licensee’s entire liability for Third Party Claims.
(b) RelSci. If a Third Party Claim is asserted against Licensee or any of its affiliates, officers, directors, managers, members, employees or contractors (each, a “ Licensee Indemnitee ”) alleging that the Platform infringes such third party’s intellectual property rights (“ Infringement Claim ”), then RelSci will defend the Licensee Indemnitee from the Infringement Claim and hold such party harmless from any damages finally awarded or settlements entered into with respect to the Infringement Claim.

This Section 9(b) states RelSci’s entire liability with respect to Infringement Claims.
(c) Procedures. The party seeking indemnity under this Section 9 (“Indemnified Party”) will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the other party (“ Indemnifying Party ”) with prompt written notice of any claim for which the Indemnified Party seeks an indemnity. The Indemnified Party reasonably will cooperate in the defense of any such claim, at the Indemnifying Party’s sole expense. The Indemnifying Party may not settle any claim against the Indemnified Party without the Indemnified Party’s prior express written consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. The Indemnified Party may participate in the defense of a claim through counsel of its own choice at its own expense; provided, however, that if the Indemnified Party reasonably determines that the Indemnifying Party is unwilling or unable to defend the Indemnified Party’s interests, then the Indemnified Party may assume the defense against any claims at the Indemnifying Party’s sole expense.
