11. Confidentiality. 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 contractor, if any, and all other persons acting, directly or indirectly, on or for the behalf of Client to: (a) 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 provided that the Client promptly deliver a copy of such order or action to the Active and reasonably cooperates with Active if it 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 using a commercially reasonable efforts 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 Active 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.
“Proprietary Information” shall mean all information, intellectual property, and proprietary rights of Active or of any subsidiary or affiliate of Active, embodied in or related to the Equipment and any Equipment 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 Equipment and any Equipment 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.
12. Ownership and Restrictions. The ownership rights, title, and interest of Active with respect to Proprietary Information and any modifications, alterations, changes, derivatives, enhancements, improvements and derivative works thereof are and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Active. Client agrees to irrevocably assign and transfer, and hereby does irrevocable assign and transfer, to Active all of its intellectual property rights, title, and interest therein, without the necessity of further consideration; or if such assignment is not allowed, Client hereby grants to Active and its subsidiaries and affiliates a worldwide, exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual royalty-free, fully-paid license with right to sublicense, to modify, or to use the any of the foregoing for any and all purposes, without the necessity of further consideration. Client will not (directly or indirectly), nor permit, assist, facilitate, procure, or enable any third party to, do any of the following: (a) decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, duplicate, or otherwise replicate the Equipment, any Equipment Software or any other Proprietary Information; (b) copy or otherwise reproduce the Proprietary Information without the prior written approval of Active; (c) design around or create derivative works or any other modifications of Equipment, any Equipment Software or any other Proprietary Information; or (d) transfer, disclose, or provide access to Proprietary Information to third parties who are not bound by the terms of this Agreement unless authorized to do so in writing by Active. Nothing in this Agreement shall constitute or be deemed to constitute a transfer or assignment of any intellectual property rights owned by Active. Under no circumstances shall Client have any rights, title, or claim over any intellectual property owned by Active. Client may use the Equipment only if paid for in full and for the purpose for which they were intended and supplied.
13. Information Collected; Participant Information. In order to use the Equipment, Client may be given access to, or asked to collect, certain information about Event participants, which may (as applicable) include, without limitation, names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, time intervals, distances, speeds, and scores (collectively, “Participant Information”). As between Client and Active, Client acknowledges and agrees that any and all Participant Information shall be the sole and exclusive property of Active. If Client logs in to the Timing Software to upload and store applicable Participant Information, Client is responsible for the security of its login information and for the use or misuse of such information. Client shall immediately notify Active if it becomes aware of any unauthorized, improper or other access to any Timing Software that is not in strict adherence to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Client agrees to (a) keep Participant Information strictly confidential Information under the Agreement and not disclose or otherwise use such information for any other purpose than expressly permitted by Active; (b) not disclose any Participant Information to any person or entity unless Active has given its prior written consent to such disclosure; and (c) promptly notify Active, but in no event more than twenty-four (24) hours, if Client becomes aware of any accidental or unauthorized disclosure, access or use of any Participant Information, and reasonably cooperate with Active in the event of any accidental or unauthorized disclosure, use, loss, damage or destruction of Participant Information. Client shall remain responsible and liable for any unauthorized disclosure of Participant Information by Client or its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, and agents. Client will be liable for costs associated with a data breach caused by (directly or indirectly) Client, including the actual costs incurred with notification and mitigation as required by applicable law. In no event shall Client retain any Participant Information other than to the extent necessary to comply with applicable law.
14. Attorney’s Fees. In any action or suit to enforce any right or remedy under this Agreement or to interpret any provision of this Agreement, the prevailing Party shall be entitled to recover its costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, reimbursement of fees attributable to staff corporate counsel, and court costs.
15. Waiver. No failure of Active to exercise or enforce any of its rights under this Agreement shall act as a waiver of subsequent breaches, and the waiver of any breach shall not act as a waiver of subsequent breaches.
16. Injunctive Relief. Client acknowledges that damages alone would not be an adequate remedy for the breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement. Accordingly, without prejudice to any other rights and remedies Active may have, Active will be entitled to seek the granting of equitable relief (including without limitation injunctive relief) concerning any threatened or actual breach by Client of any of the provisions of this Agreement.
17. Severability and Reformation. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction for any reason whatsoever, (a) the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement (including without limitation, all portions of any provisions containing any such unenforceable provision that are not themselves unenforceable) will not in any way be affected or impaired thereby, and (b) to the fullest extent possible, the unenforceable provision will be deemed modified and replaced by a provision that approximates the intent and economic effect of the unenforceable provision and the Agreement will be deemed amended accordingly.

Each Party respectively acknowledges and agrees that no statements, representations, or warranties exist other than as set forth in this Agreement and that no other representation exists that has induced the Party to enter into this Agreement. Trade language, custom, and/or other usage are superseded by this Agreement and will not be applicable herein. This Agreement can only be modified by a written amendment signed by the Party against whom enforcement of such modification is sought.
20. Assignment. Client may not, without the prior written consent of Active, transfer or assign this Agreement or any part thereof. Any attempt to do so shall be a material default of this Agreement and shall be void.
21. Force Majeure.
