It shall be considered active if the Client cannot prove that the device has been stolen or scrapped, is defective or has otherwise left the Client’s area of disposal. In the case of Users, an administration record includes all Users recorded in the Matrix42 database. The record shall be deemed active if the Client cannot prove that a User is no longer working for the Client in the area of use of the software. 

“Concurrent User Licenses” are not personal and can be used by any number of Users, but only one user may work with a license at the same time. The license is only required for those Users who also work with the management consoles of the Matrix42 applications. End users who contact the Matrix42 applications via the portals, by e-mail or in any other way are not subject to licensing.

 “Device” shall be each computing device used to collect, process or display digitalized information that, regardless of who owns the device, exists within the field of activity of the Client and for which an active administrative record exists in the Matrix42 software. It is irrelevant whether a computing device is operated in a virtualized environment. Examples of devices: server, desktop computers, notebooks, thin clients, tablets, smartphones, handheld devices.

At FSI’s request, which shall generally be made once per calendar year, the Client shall measure the Software used by them using an application provided by FSI and send FSI the result. A check shall be made in the process of whether there is any over-utilization. If FSI has good reason to suspect over-utilization, it may request that use is measured at any time. In the event of over-utilization, the Client shall be obliged to pay compensation of 150% of the fee for the additional use in accordance with the current FSI price list at the time when the over-utilization comes to light. Other and additional claims by FSI shall remain unaffected.

FSI warrants that for a period of one (1) year from delivery (the “Hardware Warranty Period”) the unmodified hardware portions of the Hardware will, under normal use, conform in all material respects to product specifications current when the Hardware is shipped and be free of material defects in materials and workmanship. FSI’s sole obligation and liability, and Client’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be for FSI to use commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the problem, or to replace the defective product, provided that FSI is notified in writing of all warranty problems during the applicable warranty period.

13. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT

If a third party makes a claim against Client that the FireScope Software or FSI Materials infringe any patent, copyright, trade secret, trademark or other intellectual property rights (“IP Claim”); FSI will defend, indemnify and hold Client harmless against the IP Claim and pay all costs, damages, and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) incurred by or awarded against Client arising out of or in connection with any such IP Claim; provided that: (i) Client notify FSI as soon as reasonably practicable in writing of a potential claim of which Client has notice; (ii) FSI shall at its own expense assume sole control of the defense of such claim and all related settlement negotiations; and (iii) Client provides FSI, at FSI’s reasonable request and expense, with reasonable assistance, information, and authority necessary to perform FSI’s obligations under this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, FSI shall have no liability for any claim of infringement based on (a) the use of a superseded release of FireScope Software or superseded version of FSI Materials if the infringement would have been avoided by the use of a current release of the FireScope Software or FSI Materials which FSI provided to Client, (b) the unauthorized modification of FireScope Software or FSI Material by anyone other than FSI, its subsidiaries or agents, or (c) the use of the FireScope Software or FSI Materials other than in accordance with the Documentation and this EULA. If, due to an IP Claim or the threat of an IP Claim, (i) the FireScope Software or FSI Materials are held, or in FSI’s reasonable judgment may be held to infringe, or (ii) Client is enjoined from using the FireScope Software or FSI Materials, or in FSI’s reasonable judgment Client may receive such an order, FSI shall at its expense, (a) replace or modify the affected FireScope Software or FSI Materials to be non- infringing; (b) obtain for Client a license on comparable terms as those reflected in this EULA to continue using the affected FireScope Software or FSI Materials; or (c) if FSI cannot reasonably obtain the remedies in (a) or (b), terminate the license for the infringing FireScope Software or FSI Materials and refund all license fees paid by Client under this EULA for the FireScope Software or FSI Materials upon return by Client.

Client may terminate this EULA, or the licenses granted hereunder or Maintenance Services on written notice if FSI materially breaches this EULA and fails to cure such breach within sixty (60) days following receipt of written notice specifying the breach in detail. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Client terminates this EULA pursuant to this Section as a result of a material breach by FSI of this EULA, the licenses purchased under this EULA shall continue beyond such termination for the term specified in the Order; provided, however, that (i) Client has satisfied Client payment and other obligations in full under this EULA; and (ii) such use shall be on an “AS IS” basis, without warranties or Maintenance Services of any kind. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event of a material uncured breach by FSI of its obligations under its M&S Policy, Client shall be entitled to a pro-rata refund of the prepaid fees for Maintenance Services.

15.3 Effect of Termination. Termination of this EULA or the licenses granted hereunder shall not limit either party from pursuing other remedies available to it, including injunctive relief, nor shall such termination relieve Client of Client’s obligation to pay all fees that have accrued or are otherwise owed by Client. In event of a termination of this EULA, Client must return any Hardware and confirm that Client has destroyed all copies of the FireScope Software.
