all copyright notices, restricted rights legends, proprietary markings and the like exactly as they appear
on the copy delivered by Entrust to Licensee.

Definitions; Exclusions. In this Section (Confidential Information), “Discloser” means the
party that discloses Confidential Information (defined below), and “Recipient” means the party that
receives it. “Confidential Information” means any business, technical, financial, or other
information, however conveyed or presented to the Recipient, that is clearly designated by the
Discloser as being confidential or that ought reasonably to be considered confidential by the
Recipient, including all information derived by the Recipient from any such information.
Confidential Information does not include any information that: (i) was lawfully known by Recipient
prior to disclosure; (ii) was lawfully in the public domain prior to its disclosure, or becomes publicly
available other than through a breach of the License; (iii) was disclosed to Recipient by a third
party without a duty of confidentiality to the Discloser; or (iv) is independently developed by
Recipient without reference to Discloser’s Confidential Information.
Nondisclosure. If Confidential Information is disclosed or received by an Affiliate of a party,
it is deemed to have been disclosed or received by the party itself. The Recipient will use all
Confidential Information it receives only for the purpose of exercising its rights and fulfilling its
obligations under the License. Recipient will treat such Confidential Information with the same
degree of care against unauthorized use or disclosure that it affords to its own information of a
similar nature, but no less than reasonable degree of care. Recipient will not remove or destroy
any proprietary or confidential legends or markings placed upon any documents or other materials.
Recipient will only disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information to Recipient’s and its Affiliates’
personnel and agents with a need to know (“Recipient Agents”). Recipient shall be responsible for
ensuring Recipient Agents comply with the confidentiality obligations of this Section (Confidential
Information) and any acts or omissions of a Recipient Agent in breach of the terms and conditions
of this Section (Confidential Information) shall be considered the acts or omissions of the
Recipient. If Recipient is compelled pursuant to legal, judicial, or administrative proceedings, or
otherwise required by law, to disclose Confidential Information of the Discloser, Recipient will use
reasonable efforts to seek confidential treatment for such Confidential Information, and, if and as
permitted by law, will provide prior notice to the Discloser to allow the Discloser to seek protective
or other court orders.
Injunction. Recipient agrees that its breach of this Section (Confidential Information) may
cause Discloser irreparable injury, for which monetary damages may not provide adequate
compensation, and that in addition to any other remedy, Discloser may be entitled to injunctive
relief against such breach or threatened breach.
Warranty. Entrust warrants that for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of initial download the
Connector will perform in substantial accordance with the applicable Documentation. This warranty
does not cover or apply with respect to any damages, malfunctions or non-conformities caused by (i)
failure to use the Connector in accordance with the License and the Documentation; (ii) accident,
misuse, abuse, improper operation, misapplication, or any other cause external to the Connector; or
(iii) any modifications or additions made to the Connector by Licensee. Entrust’s exclusive liability and
the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of the provisions of this Section (Warranty) shall
be, at Entrust’s option, to correct, repair or replace, free of charge, the Connector which does not meet
Disclaimer. Except as expressly stated in Section 9 (Warranty), the Connector is provided “AS IS”,
and Entrust and its Affiliates, licensors and suppliers disclaim any and all representations, conditions
or warranties of any kind, express or implied, including warranties of non-infringement, title,
merchantability or fitness for a purpose, satisfactory quality, or any representations, conditions or
warranties implied by statute, course of dealing, course of performance, or usage or trade. Entrust
makes no representations, conditions or warranties regarding any third party product or service,
including those with which any Connector may interoperate. Entrust makes no representations,
conditions or warranties that any Connector will perform without interruption or error.
Indemnity. Licensee agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Entrust against any and all third
party claims, demands, suits or proceedings, fines, costs, damages, losses, settlement fees, and
expenses (including investigation costs and attorney fees and disbursements) arising out of or related
to Licensee’s misuse or misconfiguration of the Connector or its failure to have the requisite rights
described in Section 4 (Licensee’s Systems and Software) (a “Claim”). The obligations in this Section
(Indemnity) only apply if Entrust (i) provides Licensee with prompt written notice of the Claim, provided
that failure by Entrust to provide prompt notice will relieve Licensee of its obligations only to the extent
that Licensee was actually and materially prejudiced by such failure; (ii) gives Licensee the exclusive
right to control and direct the investigation and defense of such Claim, including appeals, negotiations,
and any settlement or compromise thereof, provided that Entrust will have the right to reject any
settlement or compromise that requires that it admit wrongdoing or liability or that subjects it to any
ongoing affirmative obligations; (iii) has not compromised or settled the Claim; and (iv) agrees to
cooperate and provide reasonable assistance (at Licensee’s sole expense) in the defense.
Liability. In this Section (Liability), “Entrust” will be deemed to mean Entrust Corporation, its
Affiliates, and their respective suppliers, licensors, resellers, distributors, subcontractors,
directors, officers, and personnel. In no event will Entrust be liable for, and Licensee waives any
right it may have to, any consequential, indirect, special, incidental, punitive or exemplary
damages or for any loss of business, opportunities, revenues, profits, savings, goodwill,
reputation, customers, use, or data, or costs of reprocurement or business interruption. In no
event will Entrust’s total aggregate liability arising out of or related to the License exceed the
greater of the fees paid or payable by Licensee to Entrust under this License for the twelve
months prior to the first event giving rise to liability, or five hundred U.S. dollars (U.S. $500.00).
The exclusions and limits in this Section (Liability) apply: (i) regardless of the form of action,
whether in contract (including fundamental breach), tort (including negligence), warranty,
indemnity, breach of statutory duty, misrepresentation, strict liability, strict product liability, or
otherwise; (ii) on an aggregate basis, regardless of the number of claims, transactions, digital
signatures or certificates; (iii) even if the possibility of the damages in question was known or
communicated in advance and even if such damages were foreseeable; and (iv) even if the
remedies fail of their essential purpose. Licensee acknowledges that Entrust has entered into
the License in reliance on the limitations and exclusions in this Section (Liability), which form
an essential basis of the License. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section
(Liability) or elsewhere in the License, to the extent required by applicable law Entrust neither
excludes nor limits its liability for: death or bodily injury caused by its own negligence; its own
fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or other matters for which liability cannot be excluded
or limited under applicable law.

party prior to termination. Any provision of the License which contemplates or requires performance
after the termination of the License or that must survive to fulfill its essential purpose, including the
terms of this Section (Effects of Termination), confidentiality, warranty disclaimers, indemnities, liability,
and compliance with laws, will survive the termination and continue in full force and effect until
