Section 3. LICENSE CONSIDERATION
3.01 License Fees and Payment. Upon receipt of an accepted Order, UWS or its Reseller will provide licenses to permit use of the UWS Product in accordance with this EULA and the Order. In consideration for the rights and licenses to the UWS Products hereunder End User shall make payments to UWS or its Reseller according to the terms of this EULA, any Order, and End User’s agreement with the Reseller, as applicable. For any UWS Products ordered by End User or its Affiliates from a Reseller, End User will pay all fees and applicable taxes for such UWS Products and Services to the Reseller and UWS agrees that such payment to the Reseller constitutes full and final satisfaction of End User’s payment obligations under the EULA with respect to the applicable UWS Product and Services, regardless of whether Reseller fails to remit payment to UWS, in whole or in part, under Reseller’s separate agreement with UWS, but such payment and such foregoing agreement by UWS shall not constitute a waiver by UWS of any claim by UWS for any breach of this EULA by End User (other than for non-payment). UWS acknowledges and agrees that End User’s agreement to pay Reseller and other agreements by End User under this EULA constitute good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged by UWS, for the UWS Products and Services provided, and other obligations of, and performance by, UWS under this EULA.
3.02 Taxes. For any orders between End User and UWS, and not End User and a Reseller, End User shall pay or reimburse all applicable transaction-based taxes (exclusive of taxes on UWS’s net income) and assessments (“Taxes”) arising on or measured by amounts payable to UWS under this EULA, or furnish UWS with evidence acceptable to the taxing authority to sustain an exemption therefrom.

(a) Subject to Section 7.05, UWS will defend or settle any claim brought or allegation made against End User by a third party that UWS Software, Services or Documentation, or End User’s use or deployment of the UWS Software, Services or Documentation infringes upon, misappropriates or otherwise violates such party’s trademark, copyright or patent valid in Canada, the United States or the United Kingdom. UWS’ obligations under this Section 7.06 are subject to the conditions that End User (i) notifies UWS in writing of any such claim promptly upon learning of it (provided UWS’ indemnification obligations hereunder shall only be lessened to the extent End User’s failure to provide such notice materially impacts UWS’ ability to defend against such claim) and allows UWS to have sole control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations, and (ii) cooperates with UWS, at UWS’ expense, in defending or settling the claim. UWS has no obligation with respect to any settlement, payment or admission made, or cost or expense incurred, without UWS’ prior written consent.

(b) UWS may, at its sole discretion, elect to defend, compromise, or settle the claim, in which event End User shall provide all reasonable available information, assistance, and authority to enable UWS to do so, provided UWS reimburses End User for such activity. End User may elect nonetheless to continue to defend those aspects of the action against End User that End User deems, in its sole discretion, to be necessary. In such event, UWS shall provide all reasonable available information, assistance, and authority to enable End User to do so, provided End User reimburses UWS for such activity, and further provided that UWS shall not be responsible for indemnifying End User for any damages, costs, or fees associated with such elected defense. End User shall have no authority to settle any claim on behalf of UWS.
7.07 Exceptions. UWS will have no liability for any claim or allegation that is based upon:
(a) use of a version of the UWS Product that has been withdrawn from ongoing support via a publically available ‘End of Support’ notification; or

(c) the use or combination of the UWS Product with software, hardware, data or processes not provided by UWS, if such alleged infringement would not occur without such combination.
UWS will not be liable for damage, loss, or other liability to the extent the same falls within the scope of liability for which End User is responsible under Section 7.06.
If the UWS Product or any portion or component thereof is held or is believed by UWS to infringe upon a third party’s rights, UWS may, at its option and expense:
(d) obtain for End User a license to continue using such item; or
(e) modify the UWS Product so that it becomes non-infringing; or
(f) if neither of the foregoing alternatives is reasonably available, and with End User’s consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld), terminate End User’s license to use such UWS Product and refund to End User a prorated portion of the License Fees paid by End User therefor.
7.09 Indemnification by End User.
End User will defend or settle any claim brought or allegation made against UWS or a UWS Affiliate by a third party (i) arising out of the combination, operation or use of the UWS Software with any other item, (ii) arising out of the overlaying or other modifications by End User of third-party content; or (iii) based on use of the UWS Software by or on behalf of End User after UWS has notified End User of its belief (supported by reasonable basis) that such activities may constitute an infringement of the intellectual property rights of a third party. End User’s obligations under this Section 7.09 are subject to the conditions that UWS (i) notifies End User in writing of any such claim promptly upon learning of it (provided End User’s indemnification obligations hereunder shall only be lessened to the extent UWS’ failure to provide such notice materially impacts End User’s ability to defend against such claim) and allows End User to have sole control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations, and (ii) cooperates with End User, at End User’s expense, in defending or settling the claim. End User has no obligation with respect to any settlement, payment or admission made, or cost or expense incurred, without End User’s prior written consent.
