All of the provisions of this “Limitations on Restrictions on Use” section will apply with respect to a JUST Review File as though JUST Capital was the Recipient Party and Reviewer was the Disclosing Party.
REVIEWER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT JUST MATERIALS ARE DISCLOSED ON AN “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, JUST CAPITAL MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION (A) REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE (INCLUDING INVESTMENT DECISIONS), WHETHER OR NOT JUST CAPITAL KNOWS OR HAS REASON TO KNOW OR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF ANY SUCH PURPOSE, (B) REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS AND (C) ANY REPRESENTATION AND WARRANTY THAT THE JUST MATERIALS ARE IN ANY WAY GUIDANCE FOR ANY INVESTOR OR INVESTORS IN GENERAL TO DETERMINE THE SUITABILITY OR DESIRABILITY OF THE INVESTMENT IN A PARTICULAR SECURITY OR SECURITIES IN GENERAL.
Each Party represents and warrants that (a) it has the capacity and authority to enter into and perform this Agreement; (b) this Agreement has been executed by a duly authorized representative of that Party; and (c) the making of and performance of this Agreement does not conflict with any existing obligations of that Party. Reviewer represents and warrants, and covenants, that: (a) Reviewer has and will have the authority to grant the licenses granted in this Agreement; and (b) neither this Agreement nor the use of Reviewer Materials authorized hereunder (i) infringes or will infringe the rights (including without limitation any Intellectual Property Rights) of a Third Party, (ii) breaches or will breach a contract, or (iii) violates or will violate any law, regulation, or duty imposed by law. Reviewer represents and warrants, and covenants, that, other than as set forth in this Agreement, Reviewer has not provided or agreed to provide, and will not provide, any consideration (whether in cash, equity, assumption of debt paid or otherwise) to JUST Capital, or any JUST Capital trustee, director, officer, employee, agent, contractor or affiliate, for (1) entering into, or inducing or influencing entering into, this Agreement, (2) Reviewer’s access to or use of the JUST Materials or any portion thereof, or (3) JUST Capital’s access to or use of the Reviewer Materials or any portion thereof. Reviewer further represents, warrants and covenants that Reviewer has not attempted to influence and will not attempt to influence the JUST Index or any other work of or the operation of JUST Capital. Notwithstanding the licenses provided in this Agreement, JUST Capital is not obligated to use Reviewer Materials or any portion thereof and may use Reviewer Materials at JUST Capital’s sole discretion.
Limitation of Liability
JUST CAPITAL, AND ITS TRUSTEES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS (TOGETHER THE “JUST CAPITAL PARTIES”) WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY, CONTINGENT OR OTHERWISE, TO REVIEWER, ANY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR (A) REVIEWER’S OR ITS AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL’S RECEIPT, USE OR DISCLOSURE OF, OR ACCESS TO, ALL OR ANY PART OF THE JUST MATERIALS (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY JUST REVIEW FILE) OR (B) JUST CAPITAL’S, ITS PERSONNEL’S OR ITS AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL’S, AS APPLICABLE, RECEIPT, USE OR DISCLOSURE OF, OR ACCESS TO, ALL OR ANY PART OF THE JUST MATERIALS OR REVIEWER MATERIALS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS AGREEMENT. IN NO EVENT WILL ANY JUST CAPITAL PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR LOST PROFITS WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM ARISING UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF JUST CAPITAL OR REVIEWER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Reviewer hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold the JUST Capital Parties harmless from all damages, costs and expenses for any loss, claim, injury or liability of any kind that may arise from (a) the receipt, use or disclosure of all or any part of the JUST Materials (including without limitation any JUST Review File) by Reviewer or its Authorized Personnel or (b) the receipt, use or disclosure of all or any part of the Reviewer Materials by JUST Capital or its Authorized Personnel in accordance with this Agreement.
Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement will commence as of the Effective Date and, unless the Agreement is earlier terminated in accordance with its terms, will expire upon the fifth anniversary of the Effective Date. This Agreement may be terminated by either Party upon 30 days prior written notice to the other Party. Each Recipient Party’s confidentiality obligations hereunder will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement and continue in full force and effect with respect to a Disclosing Party’s Materials for one year from the date of disclosure of such Materials to the Recipient Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may remove or restrict your access to any JUST Materials or require you to destroy any information that you or your Authorized Personnel possess or control with respect to your use of the JUST Materials, in each case at any time during or following the term of this Agreement at our sole discretion.
Waiver. No provision of this Agreement will be waived by any act, omission or knowledge of a Party or its agents or employees except by an instrument in writing expressly waiving such provision and signed by a duly authorized officer of the waiving Party. The waiver by either of the Parties of any breach of any provision hereof by the other Party will not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach of such provision or a waiver of the provision itself.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, void or for any reason unenforceable, it will be construed in such a manner that would make the provision valid or enforceable. If it is not possible to construe the provision in such a manner that would make it valid or enforceable, then only the term or portion of the provision that renders it unenforceable will be stricken without affecting the enforceability of the remaining provisions.
Assignment. This Agreement is binding upon the Parties and their respective successors and assigns. Reviewer will not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of JUST Capital. Any assignment that contravenes the provisions of this Agreement will be void and unenforceable.
Use of Name. Except as provided below, Reviewer will not, and will ensure that its employees, affiliates or agents will not, use or register the name “JUST Capital,” “JUST Capital Foundation, Inc.,” or any variation, adaptation or abbreviation thereof (alone or as part of another name) or any logos, seals or other symbols or devices that identify JUST Capital for any purpose, except with the prior written approval of, and in accordance with the restrictions required by, JUST Capital. The restriction will not apply to any information required by law to be disclosed to any government entity.
No Third Party Beneficiaries. The Parties acknowledge and agree that there are no third party beneficiaries of the Agreement.
