1. LICENSE GRANTS AND RESTRICTIONS.
1.1 Licensed Software. Subject to the terms and conditions contained herein, Tridium hereby grants you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, limited license to install, use and execute the Licensed Software on the single computer or controller identified by serial number or other means during the installation process (the "Designated System"), and to use the Licensed Software and the documentation furnished by Tridium in conjunction with it. You may transfer and use the Licensed Software on a backup computer system you own or lease if, and only for so long as, the Designated System is (i) inoperative or (ii) unavailable due to regularly scheduled maintenance, upon issuance by Tridium of a backup license key.
1.2 No Other Rights Granted. Apart from the license expressly granted herein, no license or other right is granted by Tridium to you under this Agreement, either directly or by implication, estoppel, or otherwise (including, but not limited to, the right to prepare derivative works). You shall have no right or access to the source code of the Licensed Software other than the source code, if any, for certain application program interfaces that are included with the Licensed Software. If any source code is included with the Licensed Software, it is provided solely as a reference, is provided subject to all of the limitations of Section 2 below, and may not be modified by you in any way. Furthermore, use of the Commercial Features of any Oracle product included as third party code in the Licensed Materials requires a separate license from Oracle. “Commercial Features” means those features identified in Table 1-1(Commercial Features in Java SE Product Editions) of the program documentation accessible at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/terms/products/index.html.
1.3 Security Assessments. In the event you wish to conduct penetration testing or a vulnerability assessment on the Licensed Software, you shall (i) provide Tridium a reasonable opportunity to participate in such testing, and (ii) provide Tridium with the results of such test, and a copy of any report or record made of the results of such test, promptly upon completion of the testing, whether or not Tridium elects to participate in the testing. If you discover, or reasonably suspect, that the Licensed Software is vulnerable to a security breach that could reasonably be prevented, you shall promptly advise Tridium of the vulnerability discovered or suspected. You may not conduct any test that decompiles any portion of the Licensed Software, whether firmware or in other form, into binary code, or otherwise exposes the binary code of any part of the Licensed Software. You acknowledge that if you conduct any penetration testing or vulnerability assessment on the Licensed Software without first installing the most recent security update issued by Tridium, (i) any vulnerability to a security breach you may discover cannot be attributed to failure on the part of Tridium, and (ii) any statement to a third party indicating that the Licensed Materials have such a vulnerability may be a false statement for which you could be legally liable to Tridium.
2.1 Restrictions on Use. You shall (i) use all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that your employees comply with the terms of this Agreement; (ii) not modify, decompile, disassemble, decrypt, extract, or otherwise reverse engineer the Licensed Software or any part thereof, or grant any other person or entity the right to do so or take any action that would assist any other person or entity in doing so and will promptly notify Tridium of any information that any other person or entity is attempting to copy, reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, translate or modify the Licensed Software; (iii) not insert, delete, or replace, any end user license agreement, READMELICENSES file, baja.jar file, or any file with a “.license” extension (“license file”) in the licensed software, except that you may insert your own end user license agreement in the format permitted by Tridium, (iv) not insert any files except that you may insert modules purchased from Tridium or an authorized Tridium reseller or created with a copy of the Niagara Framework software licensed from Tridium if such modules do not interfere in any way with the function of the Licensed Software or with any restrictions on use of the software established by any license file; (v) not modify, change, prepare derivative works of, or otherwise alter, any Binary Code files or any end user license agreement, READMELICENSES file, or any license file included with the Licensed Software, including in particular, but without limitation, changing the behavior of any classes or subpackages; (vi) not create any classes, interfaces, or subpackages that are in any way identified as “java,” “javax,” “Sun,” “com.tridium” or “javax.baja” or similar convention as specified by Oracle in any naming convention designation; (vii) not loan, rent, lease, give, sublicense, transfer, publish, disclose, display, or otherwise distribute or make available the Licensed Software, in whole or in part, to any other person or entity, except that you may provide remote access to the Licensed Software to your customers to the extent necessary for them to view information or perform functions as part of a service you provide to them; (viii) not change the behavior of, and not modify, any application programming interface, whether by changing behavior of classes, by creating additional classes within any interface or otherwise causing the addition to or modification of the classes in an interface, (ix) not incorporate any code included with the Licensed Software or any documentation in any product created by you using the Licensed Software, and (x) not create, or permit to be used with the Licensed Software, any device integration into the Licensed Software that does not integrate through the driver framework of the Licensed Software.
2.2 Maintaining Security. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MAINTAINING THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF PROTECTION AVAILABLE FROM TRIDIUM AGAINST UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO THE LICENSED MATERIALS BY A THIRD PARTY REQUIRES PROMPT INSTALLATION OF ALL SECURITY UPDATES ISSUED BY TRIDIUM, AND THAT YOUR FAILURE TO DO SO MAY LEAVE THE LICENSED MATERIALS AND DATA AND DEVICES CONNECTED THROUGH THE LICENSED MATERIALS EXPOSED TO SUCH ACCESS.
3. TECHNICAL SUPPORT. Tridium shall have no obligation to provide technical support to you except as provided in a separate agreement signed by Tridium.
4. LICENSE FEES. The license fees paid by or for you to Tridium are paid in consideration of the licenses granted under this Agreement.
5. OWNERSHIP AND CONFIDENTIALITY.
5.1 Ownership by Tridium. Tridium retains all right, title and interest, in and to the Licensed Software (and any portions thereof). You shall not have any right, title, or interest to the Licensed Software except as provided in this Agreement, and further shall secure and protect the Licensed Software consistent with maintenance of Tridium's proprietary rights therein. You agree that you shall not contest or challenge, or take any action inconsistent with or that may damage or impair Tridium's ownership or rights, and further that you shall not contest or challenge, or take any action inconsistent with or that may damage or impair the ownership or intellectual property rights of Tridium's licensors. You shall not use the Licensed Software except as is expressly authorized in this Agreement.
5.2 Confidentiality. You acknowledge that the Licensed Software contains valuable trade secrets of Tridium and you agree to maintain the confidentiality of the Licensed Software using at least the same degree of care you use with your own confidential information. You further agree that any vulnerability of the Licensed Software to a security breach, and any information learned by you as a result of any investigation of the same, having been derived from the Licensed Software, is the confidential information of Tridium and that you will maintain the confidentiality of such information using at least the same degree of care you use with your own confidential information. The trade secrets included in the Licensed Software shall not be deemed to be public merely because individual parts of them are in the public domain, unless the combination of such trade secrets as included in the Licensed Software is itself in the public domain.
5.3 Protection of Your Data Stored on JACE 8000. Your data stored on a JACE control engine by means of this Licensed Software is protected by means of a password created by you or your designated contractor. In the event the password is lost, then upon the written request of a person Tridium believes to be the then current owner of the JACE and an authorized Tridium reseller, Tridium may provide to them a means of resetting the identity of the administrator for the Licensed Software on the JACE, provided they had physical access to the JACE. You agree that Tridium may do so and hereby WAIVE ANY CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE RELATED TO OR ARISING FROM TRIDIUM’S DOING SO.
6. THIRD-PARTY CODE. Additional copyright notices and license terms applicable to portions of the Licensed Software are set forth in the readmeLicenses.txt file provided with the Licensed Software. In addition to any terms and conditions of any third-party license identified in the readmeLicenses.txt file, the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provisions contained below in paragraph 7 of this Agreement shall apply to all third party code contained in the Licensed Software.

7.4 Limitation of Remedies. IN NO EVENT SHALL TRIDIUM'S MONETARY LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, TO YOU EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID TO IT BY YOU PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT.
8. ASSURANCES BY YOU. There can be no assurances whatsoever that control systems such as the Licensed Software will protect any individual or his or her property from harm. Appropriate safety precautions must always be taken when operating or maintaining equipment connected to the Licensed Software, including without limitation the security protocols described here: https://www.niagara-community.com/articles/Developer_Document/Security-Central and/or available upon request sent to email@example.com. Tridium assumes no responsibility or liability for any injury or damage to any persons or property resulting from the use by you of the Licensed Software.

9. HIGH RISK APPLICATIONS. Unless Tridium has provided its express written consent for each component of the License Software, you will make reasonable business efforts to ensure that it is not used in any application in which the failure of the Licensed Software could lead to death, personal injury or severe physical or property damage, including, without limitation, environmental damage, (collectively, "High-Risk Applications"), including but not limited to the operation of nuclear facilities, mass transit systems, aircraft navigation or aircraft communication systems, air traffic control, weapon systems and direct life support machines. Tridium expressly disclaims any express or implied warranty or condition of fitness for High-Risk Applications.
10. INDEMNIFICATION.

You agree to comply strictly with all such regulations and acknowledge that you have the responsibility to obtain such licenses to export, re-export, or import the Licensed Software.

13.3 Equitable Relief.

Any action arising from or relating to this Agreement or the conduct of the parties pursuant hereto shall be commenced and heard solely within a federal or state court of competent jurisdiction found within the boundaries of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division, and Tridium and you each consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in any such court.
13.7 Severability. Should any term or provision of this Agreement be finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void, invalid, unenforceable or contrary to law or equity, the offending term shall be modified and limited (or if strictly necessary, deleted) only to the extent required to conform to the requirements of law and the remainder of this Agreement (or, as the case may be, the application of such provisions to other circumstances) shall not be affected thereby but rather shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law.
13.8 Federal Government Use. With respect to any acquisition of the Licensed Software by or for any unit or agency of the U.S. Government ("Government"), the Licensed Software shall be classified as "Commercial Computer Software," as that term is defined in the applicable provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation ("FAR") and supplements thereto, including the Department of Defense (“DoD”) FAR Supplement ("DFARS"). The terms and conditions of this license agreement shall pertain to the Government’s use and disclosure of the Licensed Software, and shall supersede any conflicting contractual terms or conditions, except to the extent that any term or condition is inconsistent with Federal law.
