The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. “Affiliate” means any corporation, partnership, joint venture, or other entity: (i) as to which a Party owns or controls, directly or indirectly, stock or other interest representing more than 50% of the aggregate stock or other interest entitled to vote on general decisions reserved to the stockholders, partners, or other owners of such entity; (ii) if a partnership, as to which a Party or another Affiliate is a general partner; or (iii) that a Party otherwise is in common control with, controlled by, or controls in matters of management and operations.

EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 9 WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY IN THIS AGREEMENT.
10.1 Relationship. Anvilogic will be and act as an independent contractor (and not as the agent or representative of Customer) in the performance of this Agreement.
10.2 Use of Brand Name. Anvilogic may use the name, brand, or logo of Customer (or Customer’s parent company) solely for the purpose of identifying Customer as a licensee or customer of Anvilogic in a ‘customer’ section of Anvilogic’s website, brochures, or other promotional materials, or as part of a list of Anvilogic’s customers in a press release or other public relations materials. Any such limited use by Anvilogic shall include proper attribution to Customer or its parent company of any trademark or logo of Customer or its parent company and shall in no way suggest that Anvilogic is affiliated with, or speaking on behalf of, Customer or Customer’s parent company. Any other press releases or marketing materials referring to the trademarks or logos of Customer shall require mutual approval in writing prior to public dissemination thereof.
10.3 Assignability. Neither Party may assign its right, duties, or obligations under this Agreement without the other Party’s prior written consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, except that Anvilogic may assign this Agreement to an Affiliate or a successor (including a successor by way of Change of Control or operation of law), or in connection with the sale of all of the assets or business to which this Agreement relates. A Change of Control shall be deemed to cause an assignment of this Agreement. “Change of Control” means a merger, acquisition, divestiture, sale of assets or equity, or similar transaction.
10.4 Export. Customer will comply with all applicable export and import laws, rules, and regulations in connection with Customer’s activities under this Agreement. Customer acknowledges that it is Customer’s responsibility to obtain any required licenses to export and re-export the Platform. The Platform, including technical data, is subject to U.S. export control laws, including the U.S. Export Administration Act and its associated regulations, and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. Customer represents and warrants that the Platform is not being and will not be acquired for, shipped, transferred, or re-exported, directly or indirectly, to proscribed or embargoed countries or their nationals and persons on the Table of Denial Orders, the Entity List or the List of Specifically Designated Nationals, unless specifically authorized by the U.S. Government for those purposes.
10.5 U.S. Government Restricted Rights. The Software is commercial computer software, as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101. Accordingly, if the Customer is the U.S. Government or any contractor therefor, Customer will receive only those rights with respect to the Software and Documentation as are granted to all other end users under license, in accordance with (a) 48 C.F.R. §227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. §227.7204, with respect to the Department of Defense and their contractors, or (b) 48 C.F.R. §12.212, with respect to all other U.S. Government licensees and their contractors.
10.6 Subcontractors. Anvilogic may utilize subcontractors or other third parties to perform its duties under this Agreement so long as Anvilogic remains responsible for all of its obligations under this Agreement.
10.7 Notices. Any notice required or permitted to be given in accordance with this Agreement will be effective if it is in writing and sent by certified or registered mail, or insured courier, return receipt requested, to the appropriate Party at the address set forth on the applicable Order and with the appropriate postage affixed. Either Party may change its address for receipt of notice by notice to the other Party in accordance with this Section 10.7. Notices are deemed given 2 business days following the date of mailing or 1 business day following delivery to a courier.
10.8 Force Majeure. Neither Party will be liable for, or be considered to be in breach of or default under this Agreement (except for failure to make payments when due) on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by this Agreement as a result of any cause or condition beyond its reasonable control, so long as that Party uses all commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or remove the causes of non-performance.
10.9 Governing Law. This Agreement will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the local laws of the State of California, and not including the provisions of the 1980 U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Each Party hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the federal, state, and local courts in Santa Clara County, California in connection with any action arising out of or in connection with this Agreement.
10.10 Waiver. The waiver by either Party of any breach of any provision of this Agreement does not waive any other breach. The failure of any Party to insist on strict performance of any covenant or obligation in accordance with this Agreement will not be a waiver of such Party’s right to demand strict compliance in the future, nor will the same be construed as a novation of this Agreement.
10.11 Severability. If any part of this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the remaining portions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. If any material limitation or restriction on the use of the Platform under this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, Customer’s right to use the Platform will immediately terminate.
10.12 Interpretation. For purposes of this Agreement, (a) the words “include,” “includes” and “including” will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation;”; (b) the words “such as”, “for example” “e.g.” and any derivatives of those words will mean by way of example and the items that follow these words will not be deemed an exhaustive list; (c) the word “or” is used in the inclusive sense of “and/or” and the terms “or,” “any,” and “either” are not exclusive; (d) the words “herein,” “hereof,” “hereby,” “hereto” and “hereunder” refer to this Agreement as a whole; (e) words denoting the singular have a comparable meaning when used in the plural, and vice-versa; and (f) whenever the context may require, any pronouns used in this Agreement will include the corresponding masculine, feminine or neuter forms, and the singular form of nouns and pronouns will include the plural, and vice versa. The headings set forth in this Agreement are for convenience of reference purposes only and will not affect or be deemed to affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement or any term or provision hereof. References to “$” and “dollars” are to the currency of the United States of America. Any law defined or referred to herein means such law as from time to time amended, modified or supplemented, including (in the case of statutes) by succession of comparable successor laws.
10.13 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all exhibits, is the final and complete expression of the agreement between these Parties regarding the subject matter hereof. This Agreement supersedes, and the terms of this Agreement govern, all previous oral and written communications regarding these matters, all of which are merged into this Agreement, except that this Agreement does not supersede any prior nondisclosure or comparable agreement between the Parties executed prior to this Agreement being executed, nor does it affect the validity of any agreements between the Parties relating to other products or services of Anvilogic that are not described in an Order and with respect to which Customer has executed a separate agreement with Anvilogic that remains in effect. No employee, agent, or other representative of Anvilogic has any authority to bind Anvilogic with respect to any statement, representation, warranty, or other expression unless the same is specifically set forth in this Agreement. No usage of trade or other regular practice or method of dealing between the Parties will be used to modify, interpret, supplement, or alter the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement may be changed only by a written agreement signed by an authorized agent of the Party against whom enforcement is sought. Anvilogic will not be bound by, and specifically objects to, any term, condition, or other provision that is different from or in addition to this Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter this Agreement) that is proffered by Customer in any receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence, or otherwise, unless Anvilogic specifically provides a written acceptance of such provision signed by an authorized agent of Anvilogic.
