5. Restrictions on Use.
5.1 Customer may copy Software only as reasonably necessary to support the authorized use, including archival and backup purposes. Each copy must include all notices and legends embedded in Software and affixed to its medium and container as received from Mentor Graphics. All copies shall remain the property of Mentor Graphics or its licensors. Except where embedded in Executable Code form in Customer’s Product, Customer shall maintain a record of the number and location of all copies of Software, including copies merged with other software and products, and shall make those records available to Mentor Graphics upon request. Customer shall not make Products available in any form to any person other than Customer’s employees, authorized manufacturers or authorized contractors, excluding Mentor Graphics competitors, whose job performance requires access and who are under obligations of confidentiality. Customer shall take appropriate action to protect the confidentiality of Products and ensure that any person permitted access does not disclose or use Products except as permitted by this Agreement. Customer shall give Mentor Graphics immediate written notice of any unauthorized disclosure or use of the Products as soon as Customer learns or becomes aware of such unauthorized disclosure or use.
5.2 Customer acknowledges that the Products provided hereunder may contain Source Code which is proprietary and its confidentiality is of the highest importance and value to Mentor Graphics. Customer acknowledges that Mentor Graphics may be seriously harmed if such Source Code is disclosed in violation of this Agreement. Except as otherwise permitted for purposes of interoperability as specified by applicable and mandatory local law, Customer shall not reverse-assemble, reverse-compile, reverse-engineer or in any way derive any Source Code from Products that are not provided in Source Code form. Except as embedded in Executable Code in Customer’s Product and distributed in the ordinary course of business, in no event shall Customer provide Products to Mentor Graphics competitors. Log files, data files, rule files and script files generated by or for the Software (collectively “Files”) constitute and/or include confidential information of Mentor Graphics. Customer may share Files with third parties, excluding Mentor Graphics competitors, provided that the confidentiality of such Files is protected by written agreement at least as well as Customer protects other information of a similar nature or importance, but in any case with at least reasonable care.

5.3 Customer may not assign this Agreement or the rights and duties under it, or relocate, sublicense or otherwise transfer the Products, whether by operation of law or otherwise (“Attempted Transfer”), without Mentor Graphics’ prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, and payment of Mentor Graphics’ then-current applicable relocation and/or transfer fees. Any Attempted Transfer without Mentor Graphics’ prior written consent shall be a material breach of this Agreement and may, at Mentor Graphics’ option, result in the immediate termination of the Agreement and/or the licenses granted under this Agreement. The terms of this Agreement, including without limitation the licensing and assignment provisions, shall be binding upon Customer’s permitted successors in interest and assigns.
5.4 Notwithstanding any provision in an OSS license agreement applicable to a component of the Sourcery CodeBench Software that permits the redistribution of such component to a third party in Source Code or binary form, Customer may not use any Mentor Graphics trademark, whether registered or unregistered, in connection with such distribution, and may not recompile the Open Source Software components with the --with-pkgversion or --with-bugurl configuration options that embed Mentor Graphics’ trademarks in the resulting binary.
5.5 The provisions of this Section 5 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

8.2 THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 8 ARE EXCLUSIVE TO CUSTOMER AND DO NOT APPLY TO ANY END-USER. NEITHER MENTOR GRAPHICS NOR ITS LICENSORS MAKE ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCTS OR OTHER MATERIAL PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. MENTOR GRAPHICS AND ITS LICENSORS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. EXCEPT WHERE THIS EXCLUSION OR RESTRICTION OF LIABILITY WOULD BE VOID OR INEFFECTIVE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, AND EXCEPT FOR EITHER PARTY’S BREACH OF ITS CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS, CUSTOMER’S BREACH OF LICENSING TERMS OR CUSTOMER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 10, IN NO EVENT SHALL: (A) EITHER PARTY OR ITS RESPECTIVE LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR SAVINGS) WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY OR ITS LICENSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES; AND (B) EITHER PARTY OR ITS RESPECTIVE LICENSORS’ LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, LIABILITY FOR ATTORNEYS’ FEES OR COSTS, EXCEED THE GREATER OF THE FEES PAID OR OWING TO MENTOR GRAPHICS FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM OR $500,000 (FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND U.S. DOLLARS). NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, IN THE CASE WHERE NO AMOUNT WAS PAID, MENTOR GRAPHICS AND ITS LICENSORS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 9 SHALL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
10. Hazardous Applications.
10.1 Customer agrees that Mentor Graphics has no control over Customer’s testing or the specific applications and use that Customer will make of Products. Mentor Graphics Products are not specifically designed for use in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communications systems, air traffic control, life support systems, medical devices or other applications in which the failure of Mentor Graphics Products could lead to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage (“Hazardous Applications”).
10.2 CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES IT IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR TESTING PRODUCTS USED IN HAZARDOUS APPLICATIONS AND SHALL BE SOLELY LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM SUCH USE.

10.4 THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 10 SHALL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
11.1 Mentor Graphics will defend or settle, at its option and expense, any action brought against Customer in the United States, Canada, Japan, or member state of the European Union which alleges that any standard, generally supported Product acquired by Customer hereunder infringes a patent or copyright or misappropriates a trade secret in such jurisdiction. Mentor Graphics will pay any costs and damages finally awarded against Customer that are attributable to the action. Customer understands and agrees that as conditions to Mentor Graphics’ obligations under this section Customer must: (a) notify Mentor Graphics promptly in writing of the action; (b) provide Mentor Graphics all reasonable information and assistance to settle or defend the action; and (c) grant Mentor Graphics sole authority and control of the defense or settlement of the action.
11.2 If a claim is made under Subsection 11.1 Mentor Graphics may, at its option and expense, and in addition to its obligations under Section 11.1, either (a) replace or modify the Product so that it becomes noninfringing; or (b) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Product. If Mentor Graphics determines that neither of those alternatives is financially practical or otherwise reasonably available, Mentor Graphics may require the return of the Product and refund to Customer any purchase price or license fee(s) paid.
11.3 Mentor Graphics has no liability to Customer if the claim is based upon: (a) the combination of the Product with any product not furnished by Mentor Graphics, where the Product itself is not infringing; (b) the modification of the Product other than by Mentor Graphics or as directed by Mentor Graphics, where the unmodified Product would not infringe; (c) the use of the infringing Product when Mentor Graphics has provided Customer with a current unaltered release of a non-infringing Product of substantially similar functionality in accordance with Subsection 11.2(a); (d) the use of the Product as part of an infringing process; (e) a product that Customer makes, uses, or sells, where the Product itself is not infringing; (f) any Product provided at no charge; (g) any software provided by Mentor Graphics’ licensors who do not provide such indemnification to Mentor Graphics’ customers; (h) Open Source Software, except to the extent that the infringement is directly caused by Mentor Graphics’ modifications to such Open Source Software; or (i) infringement by Customer that is deemed willful. In the case of (i), Customer shall reimburse Mentor Graphics for its reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs related to the action.
11.4 THIS SECTION 11 IS SUBJECT TO SECTION 9 ABOVE AND STATES: (A) THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF MENTOR GRAPHICS AND ITS LICENSORS AND (B) CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, WITH RESPECT TO ANY ALLEGED PATENT OR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OR TRADE SECRET MISAPPROPRIATION BY ANY PRODUCT PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
12. Termination and Effect of Termination. If a Software license was provided for limited term use, such license will automatically terminate at the end of the authorized Term.
12.1 Termination for Breach. This Agreement shall remain in effect until terminated in accordance with its terms. Mentor Graphics may terminate this Agreement and/or any licenses granted under this Agreement, and Customer will immediately discontinue use and distribution of Products, if Customer (a) commits any material breach of any provision of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach upon 30-days prior written notice; or (b) becomes insolvent, files a bankruptcy petition, institutes proceedings for liquidation or winding up or enters into an agreement to assign its assets for the benefit of creditors. Termination of this Agreement or any license granted hereunder will not affect Customer’s obligation to pay for Products shipped or licenses granted prior to the termination, which amounts shall be payable immediately upon the date of termination. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 12 shall be construed to prevent Mentor Graphics from seeking immediate injunctive relief in the event of any threatened or actual breach of Customer’s obligations hereunder.
12.2 Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, the rights and obligations of the parties shall cease except as expressly set forth in this Agreement. Upon termination or expiration of the Term, Customer will discontinue use and/or distribution of Products, and shall return Hardware and either return to Mentor Graphics or destroy Software in Customer’s possession, including all copies and documentation, and certify in writing to Mentor Graphics within ten business days of the termination date that Customer no longer possesses any of the affected Products or copies of Software in any form, except to the extent an Open Source Software license conflicts with this Section 12.2 and permits Customer’s continued use of any Open Source Software portion or component of a Product. Upon termination for Customer’s breach, an End-User may continue its use and/or distribution of Customer’s Product so long as: (a) the End-User was licensed according to the terms of this Agreement, if applicable to such End-User, and (b) such End-User is not in breach of its agreement, if applicable, nor a party to Customer’s breach.
13. Export. The Products provided hereunder are subject to regulation by local laws and United States government agencies, which prohibit export or diversion of certain products, information about the products, and direct or indirect products thereof, to certain countries and certain persons. Customer agrees that it will not export Products in any manner without first obtaining all necessary approval from appropriate local and United States government agencies. Customer acknowledges that the regulation of product export is in continuous modification by local governments and/or the United States Congress and administrative agencies. Customer agrees to complete all documents and to meet all requirements arising out of such modifications.
14. U.S. Government License Rights. Software was developed entirely at private expense. All Software is commercial computer software within the meaning of the applicable acquisition regulations. Accordingly, pursuant to US FAR 48 CFR 12.212 and DFAR 48 CFR 227.7202, use, duplication and disclosure of the Software by or for the U.S. Government or a U.S. Government subcontractor is subject solely to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, except for provisions which are contrary to applicable mandatory federal laws.
15. Third Party Beneficiary. For any Products licensed under this Agreement and provided by Customer to End-Users, Mentor Graphics or the applicable licensor is a third party beneficiary of the agreement between Customer and End-User. Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mentor Graphics (Ireland) Limited, and other licensors may be third party beneficiaries of this Agreement with the right to enforce the obligations set forth herein.
16. Review of License Usage. Customer will monitor the access to and use of Software. With prior written notice, during Customer’s normal business hours, and no more frequently than once per calendar year, Mentor Graphics may engage an internationally recognized accounting firm to review Customer’s software monitoring system, records, accounts and sublicensing documents deemed relevant by the internationally recognized accounting firm to confirm Customer’s compliance with the terms of this Agreement or U.S. or other local export laws. Such review may include FlexNet™ (or successor product) report log files that Customer shall capture and provide at Mentor Graphics’ request. Customer shall make records available in electronic format and shall fully cooperate with data gathering to support the license review. Mentor Graphics shall bear the expense of any such review unless a material non-compliance is revealed. Mentor Graphics shall treat as confidential information all Customer information gained as a result of any request or review and shall only use or disclose such information as required by law or to enforce its rights under this Agreement. Such license review shall be at Mentor Graphics’ expense unless it reveals a material underpayment of fees of five percent or more, in which case Customer shall reimburse Mentor Graphics for the costs of such license review. Customer shall promptly pay any such fees. If the license review reveals that Customer has made an overpayment, Mentor Graphics has the option to either provide the Customer with a refund or credit the amount overpaid to Customer’s next payment. The provisions of this Section 16 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
17. Controlling Law, Jurisdiction and Dispute Resolution. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of California, USA, excluding choice of law rules. All disputes arising out of or in relation to this Agreement shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of California, USA. Nothing in this section shall restrict Mentor Graphics’ right to bring an action (including for example a motion for injunctive relief) against Customer or its Subsidiary in the jurisdiction where Customer’s or its Subsidiary’s place of business is located. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
18. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void, invalid, unenforceable or illegal, such provision shall be severed from this Agreement and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
19. Miscellaneous. This Agreement contains the parties’ entire understanding relating to its subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, including but not limited to any purchase order terms and conditions. This Agreement may only be modified in writing, signed by an authorized representative of each party. Waiver of terms or excuse of breach must be in writing and shall not constitute subsequent consent, waiver or excuse.
