RELIABILITY PARTNER LICENSE

Program Overview

If Reliabilityweb, Inc. (“Reliabilityweb”) has granted Reliability Partner (“Partner”) a license by entering into an Order Form for Reliabilityweb materials to be used within Partner’s products or services, the terms of this Reliability Partner Agreement (“Agreement”) will apply as of the date the parties enter into the Order Form (the “Effective Date”).

1. License. Subject to the terms of this Agreement and only in the Territory, Reliabilityweb grants to Partner a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to: (a) install and use the Reliabilityweb Material listed in an Order Form solely for Partner’s internal testing, development and support purposes and for demonstrating the Named Application; (b) copy and incorporate the Reliabilityweb Material into the Named Application designated in an Order Form; and (c) sublicense the right to access the Named Application to End Users for their internal use on terms (“End User Agreement”) no less protective of Reliabilityweb and no less restrictive for the Reliabilityweb Material than those used by Partner to license its proprietary products to the End User and the terms in this Agreement. In no event may Partner permit its Channel Partners to exercise its rights under this Agreement, including without limitation the foregoing license rights. Partner may not distribute the Reliabilityweb Material on a stand-alone basis under this Agreement, and the use of the Reliabilityweb Material must always be in conjunction with the use of the Named Application. Partner may not embed the Reliabilityweb Material into any other Named Application without the prior written consent of Reliabilityweb. All use of the Reliabilityweb Material must be in accordance with the Reliabilityweb attribution standards.

2. License Restrictions. Except as expressly permitted in this Agreement, Partner agrees not to and shall not allow any third-party to: (a) sell, lease, license, distribute, sublicense or otherwise transfer in whole or in part, any Reliabilityweb Material or related materials to a third-party; (b) decompile, disassemble, translate, or reverse engineer the Reliabilityweb Material,; (c) allow access or permit use of the Reliabilityweb Material by any users other than Partner’s employees or authorized third-party contractors who are providing services to Partner and agree in writing to abide by the terms of this Agreement, provided further that Partner shall be liable for any failure by such employees and third-party contractors to comply with the terms of this Agreement; (d) create, develop, license, install, use, or deploy any third-party Reliabilityweb Material or services to circumvent or provide access, permissions or rights which violate the license keys embedded within the Reliabilityweb Material; (e) modify or create derivative works based upon the Reliabilityweb Material or Documentation; (f) disclose the results of any benchmark test of the Reliabilityweb Material to any third-party without Reliabilityweb's prior written approval; (g) change any proprietary rights notices which appear in the Reliabilityweb Material or related materials; or (h) provide training or consulting services for the Reliabilityweb Materials.

3. Delivery. Reliabilityweb will make available to Partner electronically one (1) copy of the Reliabilityweb Material.

4. Partner Obligations. Partner represents and warrants that: (a) Partner will not make any representation or warranty on behalf of Reliabilityweb; (b) Partner will not create any obligation on behalf of Reliabilityweb except as specifically agreed to in this Agreement by Reliabilityweb; and (c) Partner shall indemnify and hold Reliabilityweb harmless against any loss, damage and expense arising from a breach by Partner of its obligations under this Section and any breach by an End User of the terms of the applicable End User Agreement.

5. Reports and Records. Within ten (10) days of the end of each quarter during the term of this Agreement, Partner will provide Reliabilityweb with a report of all transactions made under this Agreement during such month. The report shall include the End User contact information, the applicable Named Application and the transaction date. In addition, upon ten (10) days prior written notice, Partner will make records and books concerning transactions related to the Reliabilityweb Material available to Reliabilityweb and its agents during normal business hours. If the inspection reveals underreported amounts payable under this Agreement, Partner will immediately pay such amounts plus interest at one percent (1%) per month and will reimburse Reliabilityweb the full cost of the inspection. If no amounts are underreported, Reliabilityweb will be responsible for all of costs of the inspection.

performance under this Agreement, including applicable local, state, federal and international sales taxes, value added taxes, withholding taxes, and any other taxes or duties of any kind, but excluding taxes on Reliabilityweb’s net income and all employer reporting and payment obligations with respect to Reliabilityweb’s personnel. If any applicable law requires Partner to withhold amounts from any payments to Reliabilityweb under this Agreement, (a) Partner will effect such withholding, remit such amounts to the appropriate taxing authorities and promptly furnish Reliabilityweb with tax receipts evidencing the payments of such amounts, and (b) the sum payable by Partner upon which the deduction or withholding is based will be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after such deduction or withholding, Reliabilityweb receives and retains, free from liability for such deduction or withholding, a net amount equal to the amount Reliabilityweb would have received and retained absent the required deduction or withholding. Reliabilityweb is not responsible for any expenses incurred by Partner in connection with this Agreement. All fees are nonrefundable and made without right of setoff or chargeback. All amounts not paid when due are subject to a late fee of the lesser of one percent (1%) per month or the maximum amount allowable by law. If payment of any fee is overdue, Reliabilityweb may also suspend provision of Support until such delinquency is corrected.

7. Referral Fees. If Partner is eligible to participate in the Reliabilityweb referral fee program, the referral fees and process will be described in an Order Form.

Confidential and proprietary information exchanged hereunder will be treated in accordance with the most recent Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement between the parties in effect on the Effective Date and any amendments thereto (“Confidentiality Agreement”), which is hereby incorporated by reference; however if there is no confidentiality agreement in place between the parties, then the terms in Exhibit A will apply. The terms and conditions of this Agreement and the transactions and potential transactions under this Agreement constitute Confidential Information. The parties agree that for the purposes of this Agreement, the obligations of confidentiality specified in the Confidentiality Agreement will exist for a period not less than two (2) years following the termination of this Agreement, notwithstanding the earlier termination or expiration of the Confidentiality Agreement; provided that to the extent the confidential and proprietary information covered by such agreement constitutes a trade secret(s) under law, the parties shall protect such information for so long as it qualifies as a trade secret under applicable law.
