5.1 Confidentiality. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Software and all information related thereto or disclosed or delivered to Customer in relation to this Agreement (“BoardActive’s Information”) represent BoardActive’s confidential and proprietary information. Customer agrees to keep BoardActive’s Information confidential by exercising the necessary care required to prevent its disclosure to unauthorized persons and to prevent unauthorized persons from accessing the BoardActive Information in any manner.

6.1 U.S. Government Restricted Rights This Section only applies if Customer is an agency of the federal government of the United States. The following applies to all acquisition of the Software by or for the U.S. government or by any prime contractor or subcontractor under any contract, grant or other activity with the U.S. government. The Software and services utilizing such Software provided to Customer hereunder are “commercial items” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (October 1995) consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995) and other applicable acquisition regulations and are provided to the U.S. Government only as a commercial item. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202 (June 1995), all U.S. Government users and licensees acquire the Software and its associated documentation with only those rights and subject to the restrictions set forth in this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Software may not be acquired by the U.S. government pursuant to a contract incorporating clauses prescribed by FAR Subpart 27.4 (June 1987) or DFARS Subpart 227.4 (Oct. 1988). If this Agreement is inadequate to meet the government’s needs or is inconsistent in any respect with Federal law, the government should return the Software, unused, to BoardActive.
6.2 Injunctive Relief Customer acknowledges that remedies at law may be inadequate to provide BoardActive with full compensation in the event of Customer’s material breach of this Agreement, and that BoardActive shall therefore be entitled to seek injunctive relief in the event of any such material breach without the need to post bond or prove the inadequacy of monetary damages. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in any document, even if such document is identified as having priority to this one, BoardActive may immediately assert its right to injunctive relief within any jurisdiction and to any entity (without application of any choice of venue rules) it reasonably believes may have the ability grant the requested relief without any obligation to offer Customer an opportunity to cure.
6.3 Governing Law This Agreement shall be construed and governed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia of the United States of America, without regard to its rules regarding conflicts of law. Neither the Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, nor the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall apply to this Agreement. Customer agrees to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Fulton County within the State of Georgia.
6.4 International Restrictions Customer represents and warrants and covenants that it will not export the Software (i) to any individual located in any nation to which export, transshipment, or re-export is prohibited by U.S. law or regulation at that time (collectively, the "Restricted Nations"); (ii) to any business or organization owned, controlled by or acting on behalf of an individual, business or organization in a Restricted Nation; (iii) to the governments of a Restricted Nation or any business or organization owned, controlled by or acting on behalf of a government of a Restricted Nation; or (iv) to any individual, group or organization on the U.S. Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Export Administration's List of Denied Persons, as each may be amended from time to time. Customer represents and warrants that Customer and any organization Customer is acting on behalf of (a) is not an individual located in a Restricted Nation; (b) is not a business or organization owned, controlled by or acting on behalf of an individual, business or organization in a Restricted Nation; (c) is not a government of a Restricted Nation; (d) is not a business or organization owned, controlled by or acting on behalf of a government of a Restricted Nation; and (e) is not an individual, group or organization on the U.S. Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Export Administration's List of Denied Persons. If any laws or regulations require that the Software or Service, the data gained therefrom, or this Agreement be registered with or approved by a governmental entity, Customer shall comply with such requirements after prior written notice to BoardActive specifying the required registration or approval; provided, however, that no such registration shall claim an ownership interest in any of BoardActive’s property or technology. Such compliance shall be at Customer’s sole expense and solely for the benefit of BoardActive. BoardActive shall provide to Customer reasonable assistance in Customer’s compliance with the above requirements. Customer will defend, indemnify, and hold BoardActive, and BoardActive’s officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents, suppliers, or representatives harmless from and against any and all damages and expenses, including legal fees, incurred directly or indirectly as a consequence of Customer’s failure to comply with this Section. This obligation shall survive termination of this Agreement.
6.5 Waiver / Severability The failure of BoardActive to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is for any reason held unenforceable or invalid then this Agreement shall be construed as if such provision were not contained in this Agreement.
6.6 Assignment Customer may not assign, sublicense, or transfer this Agreement without the prior written consent of BoardActive. Any attempt by Customer to sublicense, assign, or transfer any rights, duties, or obligations hereunder is null and void. Notwithstanding the forgoing, a valid assignment of the Ordering Document shall automatically constitute a valid assignment of this Agreement. BoardActive may assign, sublicense, or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, at will and without notice to Customer.
6.7 Entire Agreement Except as otherwise noted herein, this Agreement comprises the entire Agreement between Customer and BoardActive with respect to the subject covered, and supersedes any other agreement or discussion, oral or written, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.
