Licensee shall not use the third party software components of the Software except as part of the use of the Software.

5. Export Restrictions

The Software may be subject to U.S. export control laws, including the U.S. Export Administration Act and its associated regulations.  Licensee shall not export, re-export, release or otherwise make the Software available outside the U.S. or to any non-U.S. person, without first obtaining the required export licenses.  Licensee hereby represents that it is not included on any of the restricted party lists maintained by the U.S. Government.  Licensee shall immediately notify Licensor if Licensee becomes listed on any restricted party list.

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF LICENSOR EXCEED $0.

THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT LICENSOR HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

10. General Terms

a. Waiver and Severability

The failure of Licensor to enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.

b. Controlling Law and Jurisdiction

This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Maryland without regard to or application of its conflict of law provisions or Licensee’s state or country of residence. All claims, legal proceedings or litigation arising in connection with Software will be brought solely in the federal or state courts located in Baltimore County, Maryland, and Licensee hereby consents to the jurisdiction of and venue in such courts and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum.

If Licensee is a federal, state, or local government entity in the U.S. and therefore legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction, or venue clauses above, then this Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Maryland (excluding choice of law).

c. Entire Agreement

This Agreement is the entire and exclusive agreement between Licensor and Licensee regarding the Software, and this Agreement supersedes and replaces any prior agreements between Licensor and Licensee regarding the Software.
