The Academic Institute will provide the Company with reasonable access to all relevant records and facilities reasonably necessary to conduct such audit. If an audit reveals that Customer (or any Student (as defined below), to the extent applicable) has breached this Agreement and/or the Order Confirmation and/or the EULA, then the Company will invoice the Academic Institute, and the Academic Institute will promptly pay the Company, the applicable fees for use of the Software during the preceding Academic Year, based on the Company’s price list in effect at the time the audit is completed, as well as the Company’s reasonable costs of conducting the audit. The Academic Institute agrees that upon Company’s request, it will furnish the Company with a certification verifying that the Software is being used in accordance with this Agreement, the EULA and the applicable Order Confirmation.
2. The End User License Agreement.
The Academic Institute’s and each Student’s use of the Software is subject to the terms and conditions stipulated in the Software’s End Users License Agreement, available at: the “EULA”. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to the Academic License granted hereunder, the parties hereto agree that Section 1.2 of the EULA (License) shall be replaced with Section 3 hereunder, that Section 5 of the EULA (Limitation of Liability) shall be replaced with Section 12 hereunder and that Section 2 of the EULA (Consideration) shall not apply to the Academic License. In addition, in respect of the Educational License (as defined under the EULA) granted hereunder, the Company hereby agrees that Section 5 of the EULA (Limitation of Liability) shall be replaced with Section 12 hereunder and Section 3 of the EULA (Consideration) shall not apply to such license.

Each License Key will enable the Student to receive from the Company (via the Company’s website) a free of charge Educational License to download, install on the Student’s personal computer and use the Software solely for educational purposes and in connection with the Student’s engagement with the Academic Institute, for the duration of the Academic Year. For the avoidance of doubt, use of the Software under the Educational License or the License Keys for non-educational, commercial and/or research purposes is strictly prohibited. The Academic Institute shall take appropriate measures to ensure that it distributes to Students only the number of License Keys as agreed to in the Order Confirmation and that each Student is granted only one License Key. The Academic Institute acknowledges that the provision of any additional License Keys by the Company is subject to the Company sole discretion. The Company reserves the right to request proper Student identification (as determined by the Company, in its sole discretion) to confirm that any person who receives a License Key from the Academic Institute is a Student enrolled in the Academic Institute.

The term “Student(s)” means all students enrolled at the Academic Institute during the Academic Year, and active faculty members of the Academic Institute who require use of the Software for teaching purposes and in connection with their engagement by the Academic Institute.
The term “Educational License” shall have the meaning ascribed to it under the EULA.

Each user of the Software must agree to, and comply with, the EULA. The Academic Institute shall be responsible for any breach of the EULA and this Agreement by any user of the Software under the Academic License granted to the Academic Institute and/or any Student who received a License Key from the Academic Institute.
6. The License Keys.
The Company will assign the Academic Institute a confidential “Access Key” and any other credentials used by the Company, which permit the Academic Institute to access the Software and similar keys which are intended to be used by Students in order to download the Software from the Company’s website and activate their Educational License (collectively, the “License Keys”). The Academic Institute shall store the License Keys on a secure server with controlled access. The License Keys are the property of the Company. The Academic Institute and/or the Students shall not sell, share, transfer, sublicense or otherwise disclose the License Keys to any third party. The Academic Institute shall contact the Company immediately if the Academic Institute reasonably believes that a Student or any other third party has misused the License Keys or if the License Keys are otherwise disclosed, lost or stolen. The Academic Institute shall be held responsible for any Students’ use of the License Keys not accordance with this Agreement. The License Keys may be revoked if they are compromised, if the Academic Institute or a Student violates any term of this Agreement and/or the EULA and/or the Order Confirmation, or upon termination of this Agreement.
7. Proprietary Rights.
The Software, the License Keys and all intellectual property rights contained therein and/or related thereto, are and will at all times remain the sole and exclusive property of the Company and/or its licensors and are protected by applicable intellectual property laws and treaties. This Agreement does not convey to the Academic Institute an interest in or to the Software and/or the License Keys, but only a limited revocable right to use the Software and/or the License Keys in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the EULA and the Order Confirmation.

The Academic License, the License Keys and the Educational License as offered to the Academic Institute and/or Students under this Agreement are provided free of charge. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company reserves the right to charge, in the future, any fees for use of the Software, in its sole discretion, provided that such change shall not affect the valid licenses granted hereunder during Academic Year.
This Agreement is entered into as of the date in which the Academic Institute submits to the Company the Application Form and shall remain in effect for the duration of the Academic Year. Each party may terminate this Agreement at any time, by providing written notice to the other party, provided that the Company may not terminate this Agreement during the Academic Year.
Each party may have access to certain non-public and/or proprietary information of the other party, in any form or media, including (without limitation) confidential trade secrets and other information related to the products, software, technology, data, know-how, or business of the other party, whether written or oral, and any other information that a reasonable person or entity should have reason to believe is proprietary, confidential, or competitively sensitive (the “Confidential Information”). Each party shall take reasonable measures, at least as protective as those taken to protect its own confidential information, but in no event less than reasonable care, to protect the other party’s Confidential Information from disclosure to a third party. Neither party shall use or disclose the Confidential Information of the other party except as expressly permitted under this Agreement or by applicable law. All right, title and interest in and to Confidential Information are and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of the disclosing party.
