End User License Agreement

This is the standard End User License Agreement for users of DbVisualizer. We are aware that enterprise customers in certain industries may require stronger or altered language, for instance for industry specific compliance with rules and regulation. If we agree, we do it with a cover letter to the EULA that specifies the changes, and both parties sign. Please do not edit the EULA, but contact us if you think you need changes to the EULA. Be advised that we do not change jurisdiction nor do we edit 7 Indemnification or 8 Limitation of liability.

6. Disclaimer of Warranty

Licensee acknowledges that the Software is provided "as is" and except as expressly stated in this EULA, Licensor makes no warranties or representations. Thus, unless specified in this EULA, all express or implied conditions, representations and warranties, including any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose are disclaimed. In the event that these disclaimers are held to be legally invalid, the scope and duration of such warranty will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.

7. Indemnification

This section is only valid for subscribed or purchased licenses of DbVisualizer Pro.

Licensor will defend Licensee (which for the purposes of this Section shall include its Affiliates) against claims brought against Licensee by any third party alleging that Licensee's use of the Software, in accordance with the terms and conditions of this EULA, constitutes a direct infringement of such third party's Intellectual Property Rights, and Licensor will pay damages finally awarded against Licensee with respect to such claims. This obligation of Licensor shall not apply if the alleged infringement results from (i) use of the Software in conjunction with any other software not approved by Licensor; (ii) failure to promptly use an update provided by Licensor if such infringement could have been avoided by use of the update; or (iii) any use not permitted by this EULA. This obligation of Licensor also shall not apply if Licensee fails to timely notify Licensor in writing of any such claim by a third party to the extent Licensor is prejudiced by Licensee's failure to timely notify Licensor. Licensor is permitted to control fully the defense and any settlement of any such claim as long as such settlement shall not include a financial obligation on or admission of liability by Licensee. In the event Licensee declines Licensor's offered defense, or otherwise fails to give full control of the defense to Licensor or Licensor's designated counsel, then Licensee waives Licensor's obligations under this Section. Licensee shall reasonably cooperate in the defense of such claim and may appear, at its own expense, through counsel reasonably acceptable to Licensor. Licensor expressly reserves the right to cease such defense of any claim(s) in the event the Software is no longer alleged to infringe or misappropriate, or is held not to infringe or misappropriate, the third party's rights. Licensor may settle or mitigate damages from any claim or potential claim by substituting alternative but substantially equivalent non-infringing programs and supporting documentation for the Software. Licensee shall not undertake any action in response to any infringement, or alleged infringement, of the Software that is prejudicial to Licensor's rights.

8. Limitation of Liability

Except for the Unlimited Costs, to the extent permitted under applicable law, neither party shall (A) be liable for any (i) loss of profits, business or data, (ii) interruption of any business, or (iii) special, indirect, consequential, exemplary or punitive costs of any kind, even if the parties have knowledge of the possibility of such costs and whether or not such costs are foreseeable, and (B) in no event be liable for any amount towards the other party exceeding the fees paid or payable by Licensee for the Software during the twelve (12) months preceding the claim. Statutory damages awarded under any law will be deemed to be direct and compensatory, and not punitive or exemplary damages.

9. Ownership of Data and Access to Licensee's Systems

Licensee owns all data handled by the Software. For the sake of clarity, Licensor has no way to access Licensee's data that is handled by the Software, nor does Licensor have access to the systems or platforms running the Software, any application development made with the support of the Software or Licensee's premises. The Software is run and administrated by Licensee without involvement by Licensor unless explicitly requested.

11. Termination

This EULA is effective until terminated in accordance with this EULA. Licensee may terminate this EULA at any time by destroying all copies of Software.

This EULA may be terminated by either party if the other party commits a material breach of the EULA or any license terms. Either party will have thirty (30) calendar days following receipt of written notice to remedy any material breach.

On termination or expiry of this EULA for any reason: (i) all rights granted to Licensee under this EULA shall cease; (ii) Licensee must immediately cease all activities authorized by this EULA, including use of the Software, and (iii) any Software in possession, custody or control of Licensee must be destroyed and written confirmation of such destruction provided to Licensor.

12. Governing law

This EULA will be governed by the laws of Sweden, without reference to conflict of laws principles. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with this EULA, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (the "SCC"). The Rules for Expedited Arbitrations shall apply, unless the SCC in its discretion determines, taking into account the complexity of the case, the amount in dispute and other circumstances, that the Arbitration Rules shall apply. In the latter case, the SCC shall also decide whether the Arbitral Tribunal shall be composed of one or three arbitrators. The seat of arbitration shall be Stockholm, Sweden and the language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English.

13. Severability

If any provision of this EULA is held to be unenforceable, this EULA will remain in effect with the provision omitted, unless omission would frustrate the intent of the parties, in which case this EULA will immediately terminate.

14. Integration

This EULA, including License Certificate, is the entire agreement between Licensee and Licensor relating to its subject matter. It supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications, proposals, representations and warranties and prevails over any conflicting or additional terms of any quote, order, acknowledgment, or other communication between the parties relating to its subject matter during the term of this EULA.
