(A) Usage. Use of the Software is limited to Customer’s own internal business. Customer may authorize Users to access and use the Software and related materials that Genasys makes available with the Software. Customer and Users are authorized to use the Software only as part of the Software, except as otherwise specifically set forth in this Agreement. Genasys’ representations, warranties and commitments set forth in this Agreement are made only to Customer, not to Users.

Genasys may monitor the Software to verify compliance with this Agreement.

(F) Third-Party Offerings. The Software may contain features designed to interoperate with Third-Party Offerings.

If the provider of a Third-Party Offering ceases to make it available for use with the Software on terms acceptable to Genasys, Genasys may cease providing such features without entitling Customer to any refund, credit, or other compensation. If Third-Party Offerings are embedded in the Software (such as open source components) or provided by Genasys as an integrated part of the Software, they are governed by the applicable terms of this Agreement unless Genasys provides a separate third-party license or subscription agreement for such Third-Party Offerings to Customer. Third-Party Offerings are authorized only for use in connection with the Software, unless otherwise permitted under an open source license.

3. Other Services:

Genasys support personnel will use reasonable, good faith efforts to resolve material support issues in a timely manner.

5. Fees.

(A) Fees. Customer’s access to the Software is subject to timely payment of the fees specified in the applicable Quote (the “Fees”).

(D) Other. All amounts paid under this Agreement are payable in U.S. dollars. Payment obligations are non-cancellable and payments are non-refundable, other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement. All amounts payable under this Agreement will be made without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding, except as may be required by law.

6. Term and Termination; Suspension.

 (A) Term. This Agreement begins on the Effective Date specified above and will continue for the initial term specified in the applicable Quote (the “Initial Term”). At the end of the Initial Term, this Agreement will automatically renew for additional twelve (12) month renewal terms (each a “Renewal Term”) at Genasys’ then-current rates or as otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, subject to termination as set forth below. Either party may give the other party written notice of non-renewal of this Agreement at least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the then-current Initial Term or Renewal Term.

(B) Termination for Cause. Either party will have the right to terminate this Agreement for cause at any time, upon written notice, in the event of (i) any material breach of this Agreement by the other party, subject to thirty (30) days prior written notice and opportunity to cure such breach; or (ii) the other party’s dissolution, distribution of a substantial portion of its assets, or cessation of all or substantially all of its normal business affairs.

(C) Suspension. Genasys may suspend Customer’s and its Users’ access to the Software (i) upon ten (10) days’ prior written notice and opportunity to cure the breach, if Customer is in material breach of this Agreement, including past-due fees; or (ii) immediately, if improper use of the Software is causing or is likely to cause material harm to the Software or to Genasys, or if there is an actual or suspected violation of law. Genasys will promptly notify Customer of the suspension. Genasys will limit a suspension under subsection (ii) to that which is reasonable under the circumstances.

(D) Effect of Termination. Upon final termination of this Agreement, Customer will no longer have access to the Software. Customer will promptly pay all outstanding amounts owed to Genasys and, if this Agreement was terminated for cause by Genasys, any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the Term. The termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason shall not affect a party’s rights or obligations that expressly or by their nature continue and survive, including without limitation terms regarding payment, ownership, perpetual licenses, confidentiality, limitations of liability, indemnity and disclaimers.

7. Confidential Information

(A) Confidentiality Obligations. The receiving party of Confidential Information (i) shall not disclose any Confidential Information to any person other than its employees and independent contractors who have a need to know such information and who are obligated to keep such information confidential; or (ii) use the Confidential Information for any purpose except as expressly permitted by this Agreement. The receiving party shall give Confidential Information at least the same level of protection as it gives its own information of similar sensitivity, but not less than a reasonable level of protection. Confidentiality obligations shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

(B) Legally Required Disclosures. The receiving party also may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required under a judicial or legislative order or proceeding or as necessary to comply with a public records act, open records act or other similar laws or regulations; provided that (i) it gives the disclosing party, if legally permissible, reasonable prior notice of the disclosure request; and (ii) it reasonably cooperates with the disclosing party in any responses to such request, including any reasonable objections to the disclosure request. Where Customer is a governmental agency, Customer may disclose, pursuant to a public records act disclosure request, any information that appears on a publicly available website in static form. The parties acknowledge and agree, however, the GIS-formatted database developed and made available online by Genasys as part of the *Zonehaven Software is dynamic and Genasys’ proprietary intellectual property and may be accessed by third parties only through such Software, and is not itself to be provided to third parties unless the parties agree, or it is so ruled by a court of competent jurisdiction, that disclosure of such GIS-formatted database is required by applicable law in a particular case. Where disclosure of the GIS-formatted database is required by law, Customer must obtain the recipient’s written agreement to use it only for informational purposes and not for commercial purposes, unless such usage restrictions violate applicable law. *Zonehaven language is not applicable unless you buy the Zonehaven software.

8. Data Security.

(A) Reasonable Safeguards. Each party will collect and process any Personal Data of individuals contained in the Customer Data in compliance with applicable data privacy and protection laws, statutes, and regulations. Genasys agrees to maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Data, including Personal Data. Customer will also maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards and processes for protecting the security and confidentiality of its Users’ passwords and account IDs for the Software. Please refer to Genasys’s privacy policy on its website, which informs users of Genasys’ policies and practices related to collection, storage, processing, destruction, and other use of Personal Data.

(B) Breach Notifications. Customer will promptly notify Genasys if any account IDs or passwords are compromised or unauthorized persons are accessing the Software. Genasys will promptly inform Customer if there is a material breach of the security or confidentiality of Personal Data in Genasys’ possession or control. Genasys and Customer will coordinate and cooperate regarding informinany affected individuals and competent governmental authorities of a data breach as required under applicable laws and regulations.

9. Customer’s Warranties. Customer represents and warrants to Genasys that:

(A) Customer has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and make the agreements specified herein.

(B) Customer has all necessary rights and consents required to upload all Customer Data, including Personal Data, into the Software or otherwise provide such Customer Data to Genasys. Customer Data will not violate any person’s right of privacy or copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, and Customer and its Users will not transmit any unauthorized data or content to Genasys or the Software.

(C) Customer and its Users will use the Software only as permitted by applicable laws and regulations, including without limitation federal and state privacy laws, FCC laws, text messaging laws, and anti-spam laws. Customer shall not send Notifications to emergency phone numbers and other numbers that may not legally be called by an automated Software. Customer agrees that it is Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure that Customer and its Users are using the Software in a manner that does not violate any law or regulation.

(D) The parties acknowledge that a third-party service provider may request that Genasys block Customer’s access to certain telephone numbers (“Blocked Numbers”) and in such case Genasys may deactivate access to the Blocked Numbers. At Customer’s request, Genasys may provide Customer with the ability to unblock the Blocked Numbers so that Customer may send communications to the Blocked Numbers via the Software. In such event, Customer represents and warrants to Genasys that it has all rights, licenses and permits necessary to unblock, access and use the Blocked Numbers for the purposes of this Agreement. At Genasys’ request, Customer will cooperate with Genasys and produce evidence of such rights to any third party that challenges the unblocking, access or use of the unblocked Blocked Numbers by Customer. Customer will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Genasys and such service provider(s) from and against any and all claims, suits, proceedings, damages, costs and expenses, including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or incurred with respect to the unblocking for, access to and/or use of the Blocked Numbers by Customer under this Agreement.

10. Genasys Warranties and Disclaimers..

(A) Genasys Warranties. Genasys warrants to Customer as follows:

  • Genasys has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and make the agreements specified herein.

Customer’s sole and exclusive remedies and Genasys’ entire liability for breach of any warranty will be:

in the case of a breach of warranty with respect to the Software, at Genasys’ option, Genasys will repair any material, reproducible defect in the Software, or replace the defective part with reasonably equivalent functionality. If Genasys is unable or fails to cure the warranty breach within a reasonable time, Genasys or Customer may, within three months of the initial occurrence of the breach, terminate this Agreement upon fifteen (15) days’ prior written notice.

in the case of a breach related to other Services, Genasys shall, at its option, either re-perform the Service at no additional charge to Customer or refund to Customer the applicable fees for such Service.

(D) Limitation of Warranties. Except as expressly set forth herein, THE SOFTWARE AND ALL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY GENASYS “AS IS” AND GENASYS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE, whether arising by law, by reason of custom or usage of trade, or by course of dealing. Genasys does not warrant that the Software or its Services are error-free. Genasys is not responsible or liable for any problems or interruptions in the Software due to issues with third-party hosting services or Internet service providers. Open source copyright holders have no liability to Customer for any reason. Warranties are not transferable to a third party, other than in connection with a permitted assignment of this entire Agreement under Section 14.

(E) Outgoing Software Notifications. Customer acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Notifications sent via SMS and some other channels may not be delivered to the intended telephone if it is not in range of a transmission site or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time; (ii) even within a coverage area, factors beyond the control of Genasys or the wireless or telecom carrier may interfere with Notification delivery, including without limitation Customer’s or the intended recipient’s equipment, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage, weather or other conditions; (iii) Notifications to certain numbers may be blocked; and (iv) urgent Notifications may not be timely received. Neither Genasys nor the wireless carrier warrants or guarantees that Notifications will be delivered.

11. Indemnification.

(A) Mutual Indemnity. Each party (as the “Indemnifying Party”) shall defend or settle at its expense any third party claim or action brought against the other party (the “Indemnified Party”) arising out of the Indemnifying Party’s breach of this Agreement or any grossly negligent acts or willful misconduct of the Indemnifying Party or its personnel.

(B) Genasys Indemnity. Genasys shall defend or settle at its option and expense any third party claim or action brought against Customer alleging that the Software infringes a U.S. registered patent or copyright or misappropriates a trade secret. Genasys shall have no liability for any infringement claim to the extent such claim is based on: (i) modification of the Software other than by Genasys personnel; (ii) any open source or other Third-Party Offering; or (iii) the combination, operation or use of the Software with any software, hardware or other materials not furnished by Genasys. In the event of an infringement claim, Genasys may at its option and expense replace or modify the Software with reasonably equivalent non-infringing functionality, or procure for Customer the right to continue using the Software. If neither of these alternatives is available on a commercially reasonable basis, Genasys may terminate this Agreement and refund to Customer any prepaid fees for the period after termination. This Section 11(b) states the entire extent of the liability and obligations of Genasys with respect to any alleged infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property rights.

(C) Customer Indemnity. Customer shall defend or settle at its option and expense any third party claim or action brought against Genasys arising out or relating to (i) any infringement claims or privacy breaches arising out of the Customer Data, other than a security breach for which Genasys is responsible; (ii) use of the Software in violation of law or the terms of this Agreement; or (iii) bodily injury, death of any person or damage to real or tangible, personal property resulting from Customer’s use of the Software, including the posting, sending or failure of any Notifications or other notices and information through the Software.

(D) Indemnification Procedure. The Indemnified Party shall promptly notify the Indemnifying Party of the claim, grant the Indemnifying Party sole control of the defense of the claim and all related settlement negotiations, and provide the Indemnifying Party with the assistance, information and authority reasonably necessary to defend the claim, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense. The Indemnified Party may, at its option and expense, be represented by separate counsel in any such action. The Indemnifying Party shall pay all damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, payable to the third party claimant.

12. Limitations of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, INTERRUPTIONS OF BUSINESS, OR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR OTHER GENASYS MATERIALS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY HAD NOTICE OF THE POTENTIAL FOR SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE. GENASYS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DELAYS OR DELIVERY FAILURES WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE OR NOTIFICATIONS, OR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM SUCH PROBLEMS. AS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, CUSTOMER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL DECISIONS THAT IT MAKES IN RELIANCE ON INFORMATION PRESENTED THROUGH THE SOFTWARE. GENASYS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY BODILY INJURY, DEATH, OR PROPERTY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM SOFTWARE NOTIFICATIONS (INCLUDING ANY ERRORS OR DELAYS) OR OTHER USE OF THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY ERRORS IN OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THE SOFTWARE. GENASYS’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIM OR DAMAGE ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO GENASYS DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. Genasys’ fees reflect this allocation of risk and limitations of liability. These limitations shall apply notwithstanding the failure of the essential purpose of any limited remedy. The above limitations may be superseded by law in some jurisdictions.

13. Publicity. Any press releases or other public statement regarding this Agreement may be made only with the other party’s consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, except that a party may make public disclosures to the extent required by law, and Genasys is permitted to include Customer’s name on customer lists that may be posted on Genasys’ website or provided to potential customers and other third parties.

14. Assignment. Customer may not assign or transfer this Agreement or any of its rights or duties hereunder to any third party without prior written consent of Genasys. Genasys may elect to use third-party service providers to perform any of Genasys’ obligations under this Agreement. This Agreement is binding on and inures to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

15. General

(A) Entire Agreement; Amendment; Waiver. This Agreement, including the attached exhibits and any related purchase orders, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or oral agreements or understandings with respect thereto. Any preprinted terms in a purchase order submitted by Customer to Genasys are expressly agreed to be of no force or effect. This Agreement may not be amended except by a writing signed by authorized representatives of both parties. The waiver by either party of any default or breach of this Agreement, or any obligation hereunder, shall be ineffective unless in writing. No failure to exercise any right or power under this Agreement or to insist on strict compliance by the other party shall constitute a waiver of the right subsequently to exercise such right or power or to insist on strict compliance.

(B) Choice of Law. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding conflicts of laws provisions. However, if Customer is a governmental agency, the laws of the state where Customer is located will govern. The terms of the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods do not apply.

(C) Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by a court or governmental authority, that provision shall be modified, if possible, to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable, or if it cannot be so modified, then severed, and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.

(D) Notices. All legal notices between the parties shall be in writing and shall be sent by certified or registered mail, with provisions for a receipt, or commercial overnight delivery service, to the address of the other party listed above (or to such other address as a party may furnish to the other in writing). Non-legal written notices in the ordinary course of business may also be sent by email to the other party.

(E) Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors, and neither party shall have any right or authority to make any representations or warranties on the other party’s behalf, or to assume or create any obligations or responsibilities, express or implied, on behalf of the other party.

(F) Injunctive Relief. Each party acknowledges that the other party’s intellectual property and Confidential Information is highly valuable to the other party, that any breach of such party’s obligations with respect to confidentiality and/or use of the other party’s intellectual property, including any breach by Customer of any restrictions on use of the Software or the scope of the rights granted by Genasys herein, may severely damage the other party, the extent of which damage would be difficult to ascertain and, therefore, that the other party is entitled to seek, among other remedies, temporary and permanent injunctive relief and other equitable relief for any such breach, without the necessity of posting bond or other security, to the extent permitted by law.

(G) Force Majeure. A party shall be excused from delays or failure to perform its duties (other than payment obligations) to the extent such delays or failures result from acts of nature, riots, war, acts of public enemies, fires, epidemics, labor disputes, or any other causes beyond its reasonable control (a “Force Majeure Event”). The parties will promptly inform and consult with each other as to any of the above causes that in their judgment may or could be the cause of a substantial delay in the performance of this Agreement.

(H) U.S. Government Restricted Rights. Any software provided as part of the Software for or on behalf of the United States of America, its agencies and/or instrumentalities is provided with Restricted Rights. Use, duplication, or disclosure by the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions as set forth in subparagraph (c)(1)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software clause at DFARS 252.227-7013 or subparagraphs (c)(1) and (2) of the Commercial Computer Software – Restricted Rights at 48 CFR 52.227-19, as applicable, and any other applicable federal laws or regulations.

(i) Electronic Signatures; Signature Authority. Should a copy of this Agreement be required by the Customer to be signed by both parties, a signed copy delivered by e-mail or other means of electronic transmission is deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original signed copy of this Agreement. In this case, the person accepting this Agreement and any related purchase orders on behalf of Customer represents that he or she has the authority to bind Customer to this Agreement.
