The information shared includes, but is not limited to, the User's name, email address, Media Access Control (MAC) address of the licensed computer and any other information required to successfully complete the activation process.
b. Activation Process: Activation associates the use of the software with the licensed computer each time a user Activates a License or an Annual Subscription. The user cannot activate the Software in more than two (2) computers. During activation, the Software will automatically contact Licensor to confirm that the activation details are associated with the licensed computer. This process is called "activation." Because activation is meant to identify unauthorized changes to the licensing or activation functions of the software, and to otherwise prevent unlicensed use of the Software, the Authorized User has no right to use the Software after the time permitted for activation and may not bypass or circumvent activation. If the Authorized User has not entered a License Key or Activation Key during the time permitted for activation, most features of the Software will stop running.

Within ten (10) days after termination, Licensee will provide Licensor written confirmation that this has been accomplished.

The Licensee shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export or release the Software or Documentation to, or make the Software or Documentation accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export or release is prohibited by law, rule or regulation.

Each Party agrees to take all reasonable steps to insure that Confidential Information of the other Party is not used, disclosed or distributed by its employees or agents in violation of the provisions of this Agreement.
15. Proprietary Rights Indemnification.
a. Licensor Indemnification: Licensor agrees to defend, at its expense, any action brought against Licensee based on a claim that the Use of the Software within the scope of this Agreement infringes any patent, trade secret, trademark or copyright. Licensor will pay any costs and damages finally awarded against Licensee in such action that are attributable to such claim and will reimburse Licensee for attorneys' fees reasonably incurred in connection therewith, provided that Licensee promptly notifies Licensor of the claim in writing, allows Licensor to control the defense, and does not agree to any settlement without Licensor's prior written consent. Licensee agrees to provide, at Licensor's expense, such information and assistance as Licensor requests. This indemnity shall not apply to any claim of infringement resulting from Licensee's (i) Use of other than the Current Version of the Software, if such infringement could have been avoided by the Use of such Current Version; (ii) changes to the Software or Use of the Software with software, hardware or other materials not provided or approved by Licensor; or (iii) Use of Customized Software to the extent that the Customized Software gives rise to the infringement.

This Agreement may only be modified by a written agreement signed by authorized representatives of both Parties.
b. Force Majeure. Licensor will not be responsible or liable to Licensee, or deemed in default or breach hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder where such failure or delay is due to strikes, labor disputes, civil disturbances, riot, rebellion, invasion, epidemic, hostilities, war, terrorist attack, embargo, natural disaster, acts of God, flood, fire, sabotage, fluctuations or non-availability of electrical power, heat, light, air conditioning or Licensee equipment, loss and destruction of property or any other circumstances or causes beyond Licensor's reasonable control.
c. Notices: All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers and other communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given: (a) when delivered by hand (with written confirmation of receipt); (b) when received by the addressee if sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier (receipt requested); (c) on the date sent by facsimile or e-mail of a PDF document (with confirmation of transmission) if sent during normal business hours of the recipient, and on the next business day if sent after normal business hours of the recipient; or (d) on the [third] day after the date mailed, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid.

For purposes of the preceding sentence, and without limiting its generality, any merger, consolidation or reorganization involving Licensee (regardless of whether Licensee is a surviving or disappearing entity) will be deemed to be a transfer of rights, obligations or performance under this Agreement for which Licensor's prior written consent is required.

f. Amendments; Waivers: This Agreement may only be amended, modified or supplemented by an agreement in writing signed by each party hereto. No waiver by any party of any of the provisions hereof shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege arising from this Agreement shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege.
g. Severability: If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.

iii. The Parties agree that the arbitration proceedings must be instituted within one (1) year after the claimed breach or other violation occurred and that the failure of either party to commence arbitration proceedings within such period shall constitute an absolute bar to the institution of any proceedings and a waiver of all such claims.
