its rights or perform its duties and obligations under the Agreement, and not for any other purpose whatsoever, (b) restrict the use and disclosure of or access to any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to the Receiving Party’s employees, agents and representatives who have a “need-to-know” the Confidential Information for the purpose of enabling the Receiving Party to exercise its rights or perform its duties and obligations under the Agreement, and who have been bound by a duty of confidentiality no less protective of the Confidential Information than is provided for in the Agreement (with the Receiving Party bearing ultimate responsibility for any breach of Article 8 by such employees, agents or representatives to whom disclosure of or access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information was made), (c) hold the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in the strictest confidence, (d) prevent and protect the Confidential Information, or any part thereof, from any unauthorized use or disclosure (including, without limitation, distribution, dispersal, access, escape, theft, loss or destruction thereof), and from any use by or disclosure to any unauthorized Persons, and (e) implement reasonable internal controls and procedures to prevent any unnecessary or unwarranted duplication or copying of any Confidential Information contained in any tangible or intangible medium.  The Receiving Party understands and agrees that the wrongful disclosure of Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party may result in serious and irreparable damage to the Disclosing Party, that the remedy at law for any breach of Article 8 may be inadequate, and that Disclosing Party seeking redress hereunder shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief, and the Receiving Party agrees to waive any requirement for the Disclosing Party to secure or post any bond or to show any actual monetary damages in connection with any such remedy sought under this Section 8.2 (the foregoing rights and remedies are in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and remedies to which the Disclosing Party may be entitled, whether at law or in equity, including monetary damages).

Section 8.3  Legally Compelled Disclosures.  Notwithstanding Sections 8.1 and 8.2, in the event the Receiving Party is required by Applicable Law, subpoena or court order to disclose any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party shall provide the Disclosing Party, with prompt notice of the disclosure requirement so that the Disclosing Party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy to avoid public or third-Person disclosure of its Confidential Information.  Until such time as the appropriate judicial or other authority has ruled upon the Disclosing Party’s protective order or other request for remedy, the Receiving Party shall refrain from disclosing any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in response to any such Applicable Law, subpoena or court order.  The Receiving Party shall cooperate with and assist the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party’s expense, in seeking any protective order or other relief requested or otherwise available under Applicable Law.  If such protective order or other remedy is ultimately not obtained, the Receiving Party shall furnish only so much of the Confidential Information that it is legally compelled to disclose, and any and all such disclosures shall be made under seal or other appropriate assurances of confidentiality.

Section 8.4  Ownership of Confidential Information.  Subject to the license grants set forth in Sections 6.1 and 6.2, and except as otherwise set forth in the Agreement: (a) all Confidential Information (including any and all Intellectual Property Rights therein) is and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of the Disclosing Party; and, (b) neither the Agreement nor any disclosure of Confidential Information thereunder shall operate or be construed as an express or implied grant, transfer, conveyance, assignment or license to the Receiving Party of any right, title or interest in and to the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, or in and to any Intellectual Property Rights therein.

Section 11.2  Indemnification by Client.  Client shall defend Milemarker against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Milemarker by a third Person based upon: (a) an allegation that Client’s use of any Client Data and/or any Milemarker Assets in combination with any assets, materials or other things not provided by Milemarker, infringes or misappropriates such third Person’s Intellectual Property Rights; (b) an allegation that the Client Data violates such third Person’s privacy rights or other rights; (c) a non-Milemarker application, product or service; (d) Client’s breach of the Agreement; or, (e) the gross negligence, actual fraud or willful misconduct of Client (or its Affiliates, Authorized Users, employees or agents) in connection with Client’s exercise of its rights or performance of its duties and obligations under the Agreement (each a “Claim Against Milemarker”); and shall indemnify Milemarker for any damages, attorneys’ fees and costs finally awarded against Milemarker as a result of, or for any amounts paid by Milemarker under a settlement of, a Claim Against Milemarker, provided Milemarker: (i) promptly gives Client notice of the Claim Against Milemarker; (ii) gives Client sole control of the defense and settlement thereof (provided, however, that Client shall not, without Milemarker’s prior written consent, enter into any settlement or consent judgment that obligates Milemarker to take, or refrain from taking, any action other than the payment of damages for which Milemarker is indemnified hereunder); and, (iii) gives Client all reasonable assistance requested in connection therewith at Client’s expense.

Section 12.2  Termination for Cause.  Either Party may terminate the Agreement for cause: (a) if the other Party breaches any term or condition of the Agreement which remains uncured as of the date thirty (30) days after notice thereof from the non-breaching Party (provided, however, that if the breach involves the failure to pay Fees in accordance with the terms or conditions of the Agreement, Client shall have ten (10) days to cure such breach following receipt of notice thereof from Milemarker); or (b) if the other Party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors.  In the event that the Agreement is terminated for breach pursuant to

Section 12.2(a), the non-breaching Party shall, in addition to its rights of termination, be entitled to pursue all other remedies against the breaching party, whether at law or in equity.

Section 12.3.  Termination by Client.  Client may terminate the Agreement with respect to any Service in accordance with Section 4.5, sixty (60) days after providing notice to Milemarker of any material and adverse change in the functionality of such Service, such notice to be provided to Milemarker within thirty (30) days of Client becoming aware of the material and adverse change.

Section 12.5  Suspension of Services for System Integrity.  In addition to Milemarker’s rights of termination under Article 12, Milemarker shall have the right to suspend Client’s Access, in whole or in part and without notice to Client: (a) if Milemarker reasonably believes that Client’s or its Authorized User’s Access represents a direct or indirect threat to the function or integrity of the Services, Milemarker’s or its service providers’ networks, or any other Person’s access to and use of the Services; (b) if reasonably necessary to prevent unauthorized access to any Services, Client Data, Databases, and/or Confidential Information; and/or (c) to the extent necessary to comply with any Applicable Laws.  If Milemarker suspends Client’s Access without notice, Milemarker will provide the reason for such suspension to Client.  Any suspension of Client’s Access for the foregoing reasons will be in effect for as long as reasonably necessary to address the issues giving rise to the suspension.

Section 12.6  Suspension of Services for Abuse.  In addition to Milemarker’s rights of termination under Article 12, Milemarker shall have the right to suspend Services immediately upon notice to Client if, in Milemarker’s reasonable good faith judgment, any Milemarker Assets provided or otherwise made available to Client hereunder are being used or disclosed in a manner contrary to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.  Any suspension of Client’s Access for the foregoing reasons will be in effect for as long as reasonably necessary to address the issues giving rise to the suspension.

Section 12.7  Refund or Payment Upon Termination.  If the Agreement is terminated by Client in accordance with Section 12.2(a), or by Milemarker in accordance with Section 12.4, Milemarker will refund to Client any prepaid Fees applicable to those portions of the Access Terms for Services occurring subsequent to the effective date of termination, in each case as set forth the Services Order.  If the Agreement is terminated by Milemarker in accordance with Sections 12.2(a) or 12.2(b), or by Client in accordance with Section 12.4, Client shall pay to Milemarker any unpaid Fees applicable to those portions of the Access Terms for Services occurring subsequent to the effective date of termination, in each case as set forth the Services Order.  In no event will any termination of the Agreement by Milemarker in accordance with Sections 12.2(a) or 12.2(b), or by Client in accordance with Section 12.4, (a) relieve Client of its obligation to pay to Milemarker all Fees applicable to those portions of the Access Terms for Services occurring prior to the effective date of termination, or (b) obligate Milemarker to refund to Client any prepaid Fees applicable to those portions of the Access Terms for Services occurring subsequent to the effective date of termination, in each case as set forth in the Services Order.

Section 13.4  Governing Law and Jurisdiction.  The Agreement shall in all respects be governed by, and construed and interpreted in accordance with, the laws of the State of Georgia without giving effect to any conflicts of law principles of said State that might refer the governance, construction or interpretation of the Agreement to the laws of another jurisdiction.  The Parties irrevocably agree that all actions or proceedings in any way, manner or respect, arising out of or from or related to the Agreement shall be litigated only in courts having situs within the State of Georgia.  The Parties hereby

consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any local, state, or federal court located within the State of Georgia and hereby waive any objections based on lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue or forum non conveniens to the conduct of any action or proceeding instituted hereunder.

Section 13.8  Assignment; Binding Agreement.  Client shall not be permitted to assign, transfer, convey or delegate, in whole or in part, the Agreement or any of its rights, duties or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without Milemarker’s prior written consent, which such consent may be withheld by Milemarker in its sole discretion.

[Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client shall be permitted to assign the Agreement to any successor-in-interest to all or substantially all of Client’s business or assets, provided that: (a) Client provides Milemarker with not less than thirty (30) days prior notice of any such proposed assignment; (b) such proposed successor does not (in Milemarker’s sole judgment) offer services competitive with the Services; and (c) such proposed successor agrees in writing to be bound by the terms of the Agreement.] 

Any assignment, transfer, conveyance or delegation, or attempted assignment, transfer, conveyance or delegation, by Client in contravention of the foregoing shall be null and void ab initio, and shall constitute a breach of the Agreement.  Milemarker shall be permitted to assign, transfer, convey or delegate, in whole or in part, the Agreement, and any of its rights, duties or obligations hereunder[, but shall provide Client with subsequent notice of any such assignment, transfer, conveyance or delegation].  The Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted successors and permitted assigns.

Section 13.10  Independent Contractors.  The status of the Parties hereunder shall be that of independent contractors.  Neither Party is or shall be deemed an employee, agent or representative of the other Party.  Neither Party shall have any right, power, or authority to enter into any agreement for or on behalf of the other Party, or to incur any obligation or liability or otherwise bind the other Party.  The Agreement does not create an association, joint venture, or partnership between the Parties, nor does it impose any partnership liability upon either Party.  Each Party shall be solely responsible for compensating and providing benefits to any Person providing services on its behalf and for ensuring that any associated taxes or other payments due in connection therewith are paid.

Section 13.11  Excusable Delays.  Neither Party shall be liable for any delay or failure in its performance under the Agreement (except for the payment of Fees by Client) if and to the extent which such delay or failure is caused by, or attributable to, the occurrence of a Force Majeure event.  If a Party becomes aware that such an event is likely to delay or prevent the timely performance of its own obligations hereunder, such Party shall promptly notify the other Party thereof, and promptly undertake efforts to minimize any such delay or remedy such failure, as applicable.

Section 13.12  Counterparts.  The Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which, taken together, shall constitute but one and the same agreement.  Facsimile signatures, electronic

signatures, or scanned original signatures (e.g., PDF) shall be deemed originals.

Section 13.13  Third-Party Beneficiaries.  There are no third-party beneficiaries under the Agreement.
