documentation or technical information provided by Vendor (or its
agents) shall be deemed "Vendor Confidential Information" without
any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized
herein, you will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any
Vendor Confidential Information. You acknowledge that disclosure of

Vendor's written consent. Any attempt to transfer or assign this
Agreement without such written consent will be null and void.

9.7 Entire Agreement. This Agreement is the
complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the
parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral
agreements and communications relating to the subject matter of
this Agreement. No provision of any purchase order or in any other
business form employed by you will supersede the terms and
conditions of this Agreement, and any such document issued by a
party hereto relating to this Agreement shall be for administrative
purposes only and shall have no legal effect. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, if you have entered into a separate written license
agreement signed by Vendor for use of the Software, the terms and
conditions of such other agreement shall prevail over any
conflicting terms or conditions in this Agreement.
9.8 Independent Contractors. The parties to this
Agreement are independent contractors. There is no relationship of
partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency created
hereby between the parties. Neither party will have the power to
bind the other or incur obligations on the other party's behalf
without the other party's prior written consent.
9.9 Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable
to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation
under this Agreement (except for a failure to pay fees) if the
delay or failure is due to unforeseen events, which occur after the
signing of this Agreement and which are beyond the reasonable
control of the parties, such as strikes, blockade, war, terrorism,
riots, natural disasters, refusal of license by the government or
other governmental agencies, in so far as such an event prevents or
delays the affected party from fulfilling its obligations and such
party is not able to prevent or remove the force majeure at
9.10 Government End-Users. The Software and
Documentation provided under this Agreement are commercial computer
software programs developed solely at private expense. As defined
in U.S. Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) section 2.101 and
U.S. Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFAR) sections
252.227-7014(a)(1) and 252.227-7014(a)(5) (or otherwise as

computer software" and "commercial computer software

227.7202, (or such other similar provisions as may be applicable to
you), any use, modification, reproduction, release, performance,
display, or disclosure of such commercial software or commercial
software documentation by the U.S. government (or any agency or
contractor thereof) shall be governed solely by the terms of this
Agreement and shall be prohibited except to the extent expressly
permitted by the terms of this Agreement.
9.11 Injunctive Relief. You understand and agree
that, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, your
breach of the provisions of this Agreement will cause Vendor
irreparable damage for which recovery of money damages would be
inadequate, and that Vendor shall therefore be entitled to obtain
timely injunctive relief to protect Vendor's rights under this
Agreement in addition to any and all remedies available at law.
