III. Ownership of Technology.
Licensee represents to LA SAFE that Licensee has all right, title and interest in, or if applicable, licenses to, the content data, software, equipment and other technology used in connection with the Licensee Site other than the Embed Technology, and to all of its trademarks, service marks and other proprietary information ("Licensee Technology" and in context "Technology").

If the Indemnitor controls the defense or in its sole discretion elects not to control the defense but is determined to have so infringed, the Indemnitor shall indemnify the Indemnitee from and against any and all liability, damages, and reasonable costs ( including attorneys' fees incurred by the Indemnitee in monitoring or participating in any defense provided by Indemnitor) incurred by Indemnitee as a result of any such claim or any resulting judgment or settlement.

This Agreement shall be terminated at the option of the non-defaulting party, by written notice thereof to the defaulting party, specifying in reasonable detail the reason for termination, if (i) the defaulting party breaches or otherwise fails to perform or comply in a material respect with a material obligation or covenant, and such breach or failure is not cured to the non-defaulting party's reasonable satisfaction within five (5) days receipt of such notice; or (ii) the defaulting party fails to comply strictly with the provisions of Sections II, III or X.
VIII. Limitation of Liability.
IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE USE OF THE TECHNOLOGY OR PERFORMANCE OF THE OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, EVEN IF THE AFFECTED PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Except for (i) a party's obligation to indemnify the other pursuant to Section IV, (ii) damages arising from a party's breach of a confidentiality obligation set forth herein and/or (iii) Licensee's breach of the scope of the license set forth herein, in no event shall a party's maximum liability arising out of contract, negligence, strict liability or otherwise exceed the amount of fees paid or otherwise payable to LA SAFE by Licensee or third party advertisers, provided that in no event shall LA SAFE’s liability exceed fifty ($50.00) dollars.
In consideration of the license granted hereunder, Licensee shall permit LA SAFE to insert, embed or otherwise include both active and non-active banners, images, textual and/or graphic links, and/or advertisements within the Traveler Content that promote Go511.com and/or third parties, and, in the case of active links, may link an End User to any Go511.com and/or third party website.

At all times during the term hereof and at all times thereafter, each party shall keep confidential and not disclose, directly or indirectly, and shall not use for the benefit of itself or any other individual or entity any Confidential Information of the other party. "Confidential Information" means any trade secrets or confidential or proprietary information whether in written, digital, oral or other form which is unique, confidential or proprietary to the disclosing party, including, but not limited to, the Licensee Content, Traveler Content and each party's Technology, and any other materials or information related to the business or activities of the disclosing party which are not generally known to others engaged in similar businesses or activities. Either party's failure to mark any Confidential Information as confidential, proprietary or otherwise shall not affect its status as Confidential Information hereunder.
(a) This Agreement constitutes the entire understanding and agreement of the parties with respect to its subject matter, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to such subject matter. No terms contained on any proposal, purchase order, acknowledgment or other document will be effective with respect to affecting the terms hereof.
(b) No delay or failure by either party to exercise or enforce at any time any right or provision hereof will be considered a waiver thereof of such party's rights thereafter to exercise or enforce each and every right and provision hereof. No single waiver will constitute a continuing or subsequent waiver. No waiver, modification or amendment of any provision hereof will be effective unless it is in a signed writing by the parties.
(c) Licensee may not assign its rights or obligations hereunder (including a change of control) without the prior written consent of LA SAFE. LA SAFE may assign this Agreement at any time without the consent of Licensee. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the parties.
(d) This Agreement shall be governed and construed in all respects by the laws of the State of California. The parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any dispute amongst the parties shall be entered in the state or federal courts within California, the County of Los Angeles, and each of the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts for the purposes of such action. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each of the parties hereby waives and covenants that it will not assert (whether as plaintiff, defendant, or otherwise), any right to trial by jury in any forum in respect of any claim arising out of or based upon this Agreement.
(e) Each party expressly acknowledges and agrees that any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement may cause immediate and irreparable harm to the other party which may not be adequately compensated by damages. Each party, therefore, expressly agrees that in the event of such breach or threatened breach and in addition to any and all available equitable and legal remedies, each party shall have the right, after providing timely notice to the other party, to seek equitable injunctive relief in connection with such breach or threatened breach.
(f) If any provision of this Agreement or the application thereof to any party or circumstance is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, that provision to that extent shall be severed from this Agreement and shall not affect the remainder hereof, and the parties agree to substitute for such provision a valid provision which most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of such severed provision.
(g) Neither party shall be liable to the other for a failure to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement, except for payment obligations, during any period in which such performance is delayed due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control.
(h) All notices hereunder must be in writing and mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, or by prepaid courier service, or by telecopier with receipt confirmed by telephone, to LA SAFE (511 Program) One Gateway Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
