This paragraph sets forth Subscriber’s sole and exclusive remedy and BPDIndia’s entire liability for any breach of warranty or other duty related to the Products.

Additionally, BPDIndia may at any time, without notice, during the term of this Agreement access Subscriber’s system, subject to applicable local law, to determine whether Subscriber and its users are in compliance with this Agreement. Subscriber acknowledges that the Products may include a license manager component to track usage of the Products and agrees not to impede, disable or otherwise undermine such license manager’s operation.
For the purposes of customer service, technical support, and as a means of facilitating interactions with its end-users, BPDIndia may periodically send Subscriber messages of an informational or advertising nature via email, and provide account information to related third-parties (e.g. Subscriber’s reseller). Subscriber may choose to “opt-out” of receiving these messages or information sharing by sending an email to unsubscribe@localhost/bpd requesting the opt-out. Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that by sending such email and “opting out” it will not receive emails containing messages concerning upgrades and enhancements to Products. However, BPDIndia may still send emails of a technical nature. Subscriber acknowledges that BPDIndia may use Subscriber’s company name only in a general list of BPDIndia customers. BPDIndia owns any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, or recommendations provided by Subscriber relating to the Products. BPDIndia may use non-identifying and aggregate usage and statistical information related to Subscriber’s and its users’ use of the Products for its own purposes outside of the Agreement.

Any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach thereof shall be governed by the law of the India and the laws of the Haryana State, for all claims arising, without regard to or application of choice of laws, rules or principles. Both parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of: (1) the Panchkula District Court, for all claims arising for claims, provided however that BPDIndia may seek injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction to protect its intellectual property. Both parties expressly waive any objections or defense based upon lack of personal jurisdiction or venue. Neither party will be liable for any delay or failure in performance to the extent the delay or failure is caused by events beyond the party’s reasonable control, including, fire, flood, acts of God, explosion, war or the engagement of hostilities, strike, embargo, labor dispute, government requirement, civil disturbances, civil or military authority, disturbances to the Internet, and inability to secure materials or transportation facilities. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties regarding the subject matter herein and the parties have not relied on any promise, representation, or warranty, express or implied, that is not in this Agreement. Any waiver or modification of this Agreement is only effective if it is in writing and signed by both parties. All pre-printed or standard terms of any Subscriber’s purchase order or other business processing document have no effect, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement will prevail over such forms, and any additional, inconsistent, conflicting, or different terms in such forms will be void and of no force and effect. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the terms of an Order, the terms of this Agreement prevail. If any part of this Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of this Agreement shall be interpreted so as reasonably to affect the intention of the parties. BPDIndia is not obligated under any other agreements unless they are in writing and signed by an authorized representative of BPDIndia.
