4 Limited Warranty for Readers Only.
4.1 Limited Warranty. Active warrants that the Readers will be free from material defects in material and workmanship for the twelve (12) month period following the later of either the date of invoice or the date of shipment by Active. Active’s sole obligation under this limited warranty shall be, at Active’s election, to repair or replace the Reader. Any repair or replacement does not adjust the original warranty period.

5.2 Limitation of Liability. CLIENT ASSUMES ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO THE USE OF THE TIMING PRODUCTS AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE AND ACTIVE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR USE OF THE TIMING PRODUCTS AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE BY CLIENT OR ANY THIRD PARTY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, ACTIVE’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO CLIENT FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATED THE TIMING PRODUCTS AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID TO AND RETAINED BY ACTIVE FOR THE SPECIFIC TIMING PRODUCT OR ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE GIVING RISE TO CLIENT’S CLAIM. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, ACTIVE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, ECONOMIC, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR NOT, THAT ARE IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE BREACH THEREOF, THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE TIMING PRODUCTS AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE, THE RESULTS GENERATED FROM THE USE OF THE TIMING PRODUCT AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE, THE QUALITY OF THE TIMING PRODUCT AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE, ANY DEFECT IN THE TIMING PRODUCT AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE, FAILURE OF THE TIMING PRODUCT AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE TO PERFORM AS EXPECTED, THE SERVICES RELATED TO THE TIMING PRODUCT AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE, THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE RESULTS OF THE TIMING PRODUCT AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE, ANY TRANSACTIONS RESULTING FROM THIS AGREEMENT, LOSS OF GOODWILL OR PROFITS, LOST BUSINESS HOWEVER CHARACTERIZED, LOSS OF USE OR FOR THE DAMAGE, INJURY, OR LOSS OF LIFE OR PROPERTY, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND/OR FROM ANY OTHER CAUSE WHATSOEVER, EVEN if RESULTING FROM THE USE OF TIMING PRODUCTS OR ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE OR DEFECTS IN, OR INEFFICIENCY OF, THE TIMING PRODUCTS AND ANY TIMING PRODUCTS SOFTWARE. THE PARTIES FURTHER AGREE THAT EACH AND EVERY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS EXPRESSLY INTENDED TO BE SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ANY OTHER PROVISION SINCE THOSE PROVISIONS REPRESENT SEPARATE ELEMENTS OF RISK ALLOCATION BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND SHALL BE SEPARATELY ENFORCED.
6.1 Automatic Termination. Active shall be entitled to terminate, without notice, this Agreement and the duties and obligations hereunder in the event that: (a) Client becomes insolvent or seeks protection, voluntarily or involuntarily, under applicable bankruptcy laws; (b) a receivership is appointed on behalf of Client; or (c) Client materially breaches any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
6.2 Effect of Termination. In the event that Client has ordered Timing Products or requested custom manufactured Timing Products and has not rendered payment therefore, upon termination of this Agreement, Client shall remain responsible for the payment of, and agrees to pay, the Purchase Price of any such Timing Products that Active has commenced manufacture of, has acquired component parts and equipment for, or has incurred other costs and expenses for as a result of this Agreement.
7.1 Active and Client acknowledge and agree that Client shall have access to and receive Proprietary Information, as defined below, as a result of this Agreement. Client shall and shall cause its agents, employees, parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, or contractors, if any, and all other persons acting, directly or indirectly, on or for the behalf of Client: (a) to keep all Proprietary Information confidential and not to disclose such, either directly or indirectly, to any third party, and (b) not to use any such Proprietary Information for any purpose other than performance hereunder or as otherwise authorized without a prior written consent, duly executed by Active. The obligations in this Section shall not apply to any information that Client (i) knows about prior to the execution of this Agreement except any information which is the subject of unexpired confidentiality obligations; (ii) information that is publicly known, or becomes publicly known, through no breach by Client; and (iii) information that is rightfully obtained by Client from any third party who has no duty of confidentiality under this Agreement or any other confidentiality obligations. Proprietary Information that is required to be released by operation of a legal proceeding, pursuant to a binding court order or government regulation, shall not be subject to the obligations of this Section 7 provided that the Client promptly delivers a copy of such order or action to Active and reasonably cooperates with Active if Active elects to contest such disclosure or seek an appropriate remedy, such as, without limitation, a protective order. Client agrees to take all reasonably necessary steps, and to prepare and execute all necessary documents, to protect and prohibit the disclosure of Active Information under this Section 7 using commercially reasonable efforts and a standard of care at least equal to the care used by Client to protect its own confidential or proprietary information. Client shall immediately notify Active of any information that comes to its attention which might indicate that there has been an actual or potential loss or disclosure of confidentiality with respect to the Proprietary Information. In the event of a breach or threatened breach of the confidentiality obligations in this Section, Client acknowledges and agrees that it would be difficult to measure the damage to Active from such breach, that injury to Active from such breach would be impossible to calculate, and that monetary damages would not suffice as an adequate remedy for such breach. Accordingly, Active, in addition to any and all other rights (at law or in equity) which may be available, shall have the right of injunctive relief and other appropriate equitable remedies to restrain any such breach or threatened breach without the necessity of posting a bond.
7.2 Proprietary Information Defined. "Proprietary Information" means all information, intellectual property, and proprietary rights of Active or any subsidiary or affiliate of Active, embodied in or related to the Timing Products and any Timing Products Software, including, without limitation: (a) all inventions (whether patentable or unpatentable and whether or not reduced to practice), all improvements thereto, and all patents and patent applications claiming such inventions; (b) all trademarks, service marks, trade dress, logos, trade names, fictitious names, brand names, brand marks, and corporate names, together with all translations, adaptations, derivations, and combinations thereof and including all goodwill associated therewith, and all applications, registrations, and renewals in connection therewith; (c) all copyrightable works, all copyrights, and all applications, registrations, and renewals in connection therewith; (d) all mask works and all applications, registrations, and renewals in connection therewith; (e) all trade secrets (including, without limitation, research and development, know-how, formulas, compositions, manufacturing and production processes and techniques, methodologies, technical data, designs, drawings, and specifications); (f) all computer software, including, without limitation, data, source, and object codes, and related documentation; (g) all copies and tangible embodiments of proprietary rights of Active (regardless of the form or medium on which stored or located), or similar intangible personal property which have been or are developed or created in whole or in part by Active; (h) Active manufactured goods, parts, embodiments, modules, designs, samples, or other subparts of the Timing Products and any Timing Products Software and related documentation (regardless of the form or medium on which stored or located); (i) business practices, arrangements, research, studies, procedures, and sales, cost, and pricing information; (j) financial data and information; (k) production, distribution, and sales methods; (l) marketing data, methods, plans, and efforts; (m) the identities of actual and prospective customers, contractors, distributors, and suppliers; (n) the terms of contracts, agreements, and arrangements with customers, contractors, distributors, and suppliers; (o) the needs and requirements of, and Active’s course of dealing with, actual or prospective customers, contractors, distributors, and suppliers; (p) customer, contractor, distributor, and supplier information; and (q) purchasing history and requirements. Failure by Active to mark any of the Proprietary Information proprietary shall not affect its status as Proprietary Information under the terms of this Agreement.
