However, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to an order of a court or governmental agency, provided, that, if permitted by applicable law, the Receiving Party shall first notify the Disclosing Party of such order and afford the Disclosing Party the opportunity to seek a protective order relating to such disclosure. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Customer authorizes AVEVA to collect, use, disclose, and modify in perpetuity information or data (including, but not limited to, general usage information and measurements) that is provided by Customer in connection with the use or receipt of the Products (or generated or created in the course of AVEVA providing the Products) for the purposes of developing, improving, optimizing, and delivering Products; provided, however, that any disclosure of such data shall only include information or data that AVEVA develops or derives from such collected data or information (but such disclosure will not include the actual underlying Confidential Information of Customer).

EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THE AGREEMENT, AVEVA AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, OR STATEMENTS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY LAW CANNOT BE VALIDLY WAIVED. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY AVEVA, ITS DEALERS, DISTRIBUTORS OR AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE OF THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THE AGREEMENT AND CUSTOMER MAY NOT RELY ON ANY SUCH INFORMATION OR ADVICE. AVEVA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE PRODUCTS WILL MEET CUSTOMER'S REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE PRODUCTS WILL OPERATE IN COMBINATIONS OTHER THAN AS SPECIFIED IN AVEVA'S DOCUMENTATION (AS APPLICABLE), THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCTS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE PRODUCTS WILL PROTECT AGAINST ALL POSSIBLE SECURITY THREATS, INTERNET THREATS OR OTHER THREATS OR INTERRUPTIONS. THE PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS AND MAY BE SUBJECT TO TRANSMISSION ERRORS, DELIVERY FAILURES, DELAYS AND OTHER LIMITATIONS INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS.
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
8.1. CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL AVEVA BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR SIMILAR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE AGREEMENT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE, LOSS, CORRUPTION OR DESTRUCTION OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR DOWNTIME), REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION OR BASIS OF LIABILITY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, INDEMNITY, OR OTHERWISE), AND EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
8.2. Damages Cap. The aggregate liability of AVEVA to Customer for any loss or damage arising under or in relation to the Agreement, regardless of the basis of liability (whether arising out of liability under breach of contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence), misrepresentation, breach of statutory duty, breach of warranty or claims by third parties arising from any breach of the Agreement) shall not exceed the fees paid by Customer pursuant to the applicable Transaction Document for the specific Product giving rise to such liability in the twelve (12) month period preceding the date of the incident giving rise to the claim. The provisions of this Section 8 allocate the risks between AVEVA and Customer, and AVEVA's pricing reflects this allocation of risk and the limitation of liability specified herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the limitations on amounts of damages set forth in this Section 8.2 shall not apply to AVEVA's intentional misconduct, fraud, or fraudulent misrepresentation, or to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
9.1. Indemnification by AVEVA. AVEVA shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Customer against claims brought against Customer by any third party alleging that Customer's use of the Products, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Agreement, constitutes an infringement or misappropriation of a patent, copyright, or trade secret of a third party. AVEVA will pay damages finally awarded to the third party (or the amount of any settlement AVEVA enters into) with respect to such claims. This obligation of AVEVA shall not apply if the alleged infringement or misappropriation results from: (a) use of the Products in conjunction or combination with any other software, services, or any product, data, item, or apparatus that AVEVA did not provide (including any Third-Party Products); (b) anything Customer provides or designs including configurations, instructions, or specifications (including any Products that were provided pursuant to Customer's designs, drawings, or specifications); (c) a modification of a Product other than with AVEVA's prior written consent; (d) Customer's failure to use the latest release or version of a Product (including any corrections or enhancements) where such use would have prevented the infringement or misappropriation claim; or (e) any use, storage, distribution, reproduction, or maintenance not permitted by the Agreement. If AVEVA believes, in its reasonable opinion, that a claim under this Section 9.1 could or is likely to be made, AVEVA may cease to offer or deliver such Products without being in breach of the Agreement.
9.2. Infringement Remedies. In the event a claim under Section 9.1 is made and such Product is held to infringe or misappropriate a third-party's patent, copyright, or trade secret, then AVEVA may, at its sole option and expense: (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Product under the terms of the Agreement or (b) replace or modify the Product to be non-infringing without a material decrease in functionality. If these options are not reasonably available, AVEVA or Customer may terminate the Agreement upon written notice to the other and Customer shall immediately cease using or shall return the infringing Product. The provisions of this Section 9.2 state the sole, exclusive, and entire liability of AVEVA to Customer, and is Customer's sole remedy, with respect to third-party claims covered by Section 9.1.
9.3. Indemnification by Customer. Customer shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless AVEVA and its Affiliates (and each of their licensors) and each of their respective officers, directors, contractors, agents, and employees ("AVEVA Indemnitees") against claims brought against AVEVA Indemnitees by any third party arising from or related to: (a) any use of the Products by Customer in violation of the Agreement or any applicable law or regulation; (b) any Customer Content; and (c) an allegation that the Customer Content or other material provided by Customer, or use of the Products by Customer in violation of the Agreement or applicable law or regulation, violates, infringes, or misappropriates the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party. The foregoing shall apply regardless of whether such damage is caused by the conduct of Customer and/or its named users or by the conduct of a third party using Customer's access credentials.
9.4. Indemnification Requirements. The indemnification obligations under this Section 9 are conditioned on: (a) the Party against whom a third-party claim is brought timely notifying the other Party in writing of any such claim, provided however that a Party's failure to provide or delay in providing such notice shall not relieve a Party of its obligations under this Section 9 except to the extent such failure or delay prejudices the defense; (b) the Party who is obligated to defend a claim having the right to fully control the defense of such claim; (c) the Party against whom a third-party claim is brought reasonably cooperating in the defense of such claim; and (d) Customer complying with AVEVA's direction to cease any use of the Products which in AVEVA's reasonable opinion, is likely to constitute an infringement or misappropriation. Any settlement of any claim shall not include a financial or specific performance obligation on or admission of liability by the Party against whom the claim is brought, provided however that AVEVA may settle any claim on a basis requiring AVEVA to substitute for the Products any alternative substantially equivalent non-infringing products. AVEVA shall not be responsible for any settlement made without its consent. The Party against whom a third-party claim is brought may appear, at its own expense, through counsel reasonably acceptable to the Party obligated to defend claims. Neither Party shall undertake any action in response to any infringement or misappropriation, or alleged infringement or misappropriation that is prejudicial to the other Party's rights.

Except for Customer's payment obligations, neither Party shall be liable for delays caused by conditions beyond their reasonable control, ("Force Majeure"), provided notice thereof is given to the other Party as soon as practicable. All such Force Majeure conditions preventing performance shall entitle the Party hindered in the performance of its obligations under the Agreement to an extension of the date of delivery of the Products by a period of time equal to the period of delay incurred as a result of the Force Majeure or to any other period as the Parties may agree in writing.
14.4. Waiver.

The Parties hereby agree to attempt to substitute for any invalid or unenforceable provision a valid or enforceable provision which achieves to the greatest extent possible the economic, legal and commercial objectives of the invalid or unenforceable provision.
14.7. Negotiated Terms.

If a court must enter or enforce an arbitration award or the binding arbitration provision set forth in Section 14.12 (Binding Arbitration) is deemed invalid or ineffective, then each Party irrevocably agrees to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of (and waives any objection to the venue of) the federal or state courts located in Harris County, Texas to enter or enforce such award or to determine such claim or matter arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, as applicable.

14.12. Binding Arbitration. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Agreement, including any breach of the Agreement, shall be determined by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Streamlined Rules").
