14. Governing Law and exclusions
14.1 Applicable Law
This EULA and any disputes or claims arising out of or in connection with its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by and construed in accordance with the Laws of Germany and shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the German courts.
If any provision of the EULA (or part of a provision) is found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions shall remain in force.
If any invalid, unenforceable or illegal provision would be valid, enforceable or legal if some part of it were deleted, the provision shall apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable and to give effect to the commercial intention of the parties.
Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information disclosed to such party (“Receiving Party”) by the disclosing party ("Disclosing Party") constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party ("Confidential Information"), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure. Any APTIS Technology and any performance information relating to the Products shall be deemed Confidential Information of APTIS without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information. The Receiving Party's nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document:
(I) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information;
(II) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party;
(III) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or
(IV) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information. The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party). The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section shall not operate as a separate warranty with respect to the operation of any Product.
If APTIS fails, at any time during the term of this EULA, to insist upon strict performance of any of the Licensee’s obligations under this EULA, or if APTIS fails to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which it is entitled under this EULA, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve the Licensee from compliance with such obligations.
A waiver by APTIS of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.
No waiver by APTIS of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to the Licensee in writing.
