        non-transferable, limited, revocable and non-exclusive right to use the Product on only one

        ii)     External Users, but only for the purpose of accessing and modifying the
                Licensee’s data

        Thus, the Licensee shall have no right whatsoever to allow such External Users to use the
        Product for bookkeeping of their own or other parties’ data. Apart from the situations stated
        in this Clause 2.1.2, the Licensee shall have no right to grant access to the Licensee’s or any
        third party's data by means of the Product.

        To the extent that the Licensee permits the Internal Users, including users in Subsidiaries, as
        stated in Clause 2.1.2, to access and use the Product as stated in Clause 2.1.2, it shall be the
        sole responsibility of the Licensee to ensure that the stated users do not violate the terms
        and conditions of this License Agreement, and that the Subsidiaries accept in a legally
        binding way to be bound by the terms and conditions stated in this License Agreement prior
        to granting the Subsidiaries access to the Product. Where the Licensee fails to fulfill this
        obligation, it shall be deemed breach of this License Agreement, and such breach shall entitle
        Licensor to terminate this License Agreement for cause, cf. Clause 9.2.1, and pursue all
        remedies available to it.

        The Licensee’s right to use the Product (or any intellectual property of Licensor or any of
        their affiliates associated therewith) does not include any license, right, power or authority to
        (a) create derivative works of the Product in any manner that would cause the Product or
        derivative work thereof, in whole or in part, to become subject to any of the terms of the
        Excluded License, or (b) distribute the Product (or any intellectual property of Licensor or
        any of their affiliates associated therewith) or derivative works thereof in any manner that
        would cause the Product (or any intellectual property of Licensor or any of their affiliates
        associated therewith) or derivative work thereof to become subject to any of the terms of the
        Excluded License. “Excluded License” shall mean any license that requires as a condition of
        use, modification and/or distribution of software, subject to the Excluded License, that such

        ensure that the functions in the Product fulfill the Licensee’s requirements.

Exensys Initial_ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _           Customer Initial_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _    Page 3 of 11
        acquired and actually paid for the tools to perform such adjustment or modification where
        this is required by Exensys Software Solutions.

        Software Solutions.

        that the Licensee will be able to make full use of any enhancements, customization,
        extensions or other modifications created as components in the Application of the Product.

        only: 1) copies for archival or backup purposes, 2) one (1) copy for development and test
        purposes and 3) copies of the Product where, and only to the extent that the right to make

3.      Intellectual Property Rights/Copyrights
3.1     Licensor holds full copyright, title and all and any other rights to the Product. The Product is
        protected by copyright laws and international treaty provisions. Any disregard of licensor’s
        rights by Licensee, including inappropriate access to the Product which might render
        copying of License Files/Code of the Product, for third parties, shall be deemed to be a
        material breach of this License Agreement and shall entitle Licensor to terminate this
        License Agreement for cause, cf. Clause 9.2.1, and pursue all remedies available to it.

3.2     The Licensee shall not break or change any License Files/Codes. Nor shall the Licensee
        change or remove any marks and/or notices concerning copyright, trademarks or other
        rights, or references hereto stated in the Product or on the medium upon which the Product
        may have been delivered.

3.3     The Licensee shall not reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile the Product, except where
        and only to the extent that such operations are permitted according to mandatory, statutory
        legislation and the Licensee shall comply with that legislation in all respects.

4.      Infringement of Third Party Rights
4.1     If a third party objects to the Licensee’s use of the Product based on the claim that the use
        of the Product infringes such third party’s intellectual property right (hereinafter referred to
        as “Infringement Claim”), Licensor will defend the Licensee against that Infringement Claim
        and pay all costs, damages and legal fees, provided that the Licensee promptly 1) notifies
        Licensor in writing of the Infringement Claim as soon as it becomes aware of such




Exensys Initial_ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _          Customer Initial_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _     Page 4 of 11
        Infringement Claim, 2) allows Licensor to control the defense and any related settlement
        negotiations in coordination with the Office of the Attorney General for state agency
        Customers, including receiving the Attorney General’s advance consent to pay settlements,
        and 3) cooperates with Licensor in the defence and any related settlement negotiations by
        providing Licensor with appropriate information and assistance needed for such defence or
        settlement.



4.2     In the event of an Infringement Claim, Licensor shall be entitled to either: 1) obtain the
        continued right for the Licensee to use the Product, 2) bring the infringement to an end by
        modifying the Product or replacing the Product with other software which, essentially,
        possesses the same functions as the affected Product, or 3) terminate this License
        Agreement with written notice and pay to the Licensee an amount equal to the license fee
        actually paid for the license to the Product by the Licensee. Licensor shall only be obliged to
        pay the stated amount to the Licensee if the Infringement Claim is actually raised against the
        Licensee within a period of five (5) years following the date of the Licensee’s acceptance of
        this License Agreement. If an Infringement Claim is raised against the Licensee after the
        stated period has expired, Licensor shall be entitled to terminate this License Agreement
        without payment of any amount to the Licensee. The performance of Licensors’ obligations
        under this Clause 4.2 shall be Licensors’ total aggregate liability and entire obligation to the
        Licensee as a consequence of all and any Infringement Claims, and the Licensee shall have
        no other claims against Licensor as a result of such Infringement Claim. Upon termination
        of this License Agreement, the Licensee shall promptly cease using the Product and fulfill
        the terms and conditions connected to termination as stated in Clause 9.1.1.

4.3     The limited warranty stated in Clause 5.1 and 5.2 is void if the Infringement Claim has
        resulted from accident, abuse or misapplication. Any modification of the Product by anyone
        other than Licensor voids the foregoing warranty on any portion of the Product modified or
        affected by such modification.

5.      Limited Warranty
5.1     Where the Licensee within a period of six (6) months from the date of installation provides
        written documentation demonstrating that the Product does not perform substantially in
        accordance with its electronic user documentation, and that there is a significant error in the
        Product, (i.e., an error characterized by the fact that one or more of the Licensee's vital
        business functions cannot be carried into effect owing to the fact that the error renders the
        Product inoperable), Licensor shall either 1) deliver, free of charge, a new version of the
        Product without the error, 2) correct the error free of charge, or 3) return the license fee
        actually paid for the license to the Product by the Licensee. The performance of Licensors’
        obligations under this Clause 5.1 shall be Licensors’ total aggregate liability and Licensors’
        entire obligation to the Licensee as a consequence of all and any errors in the Product, and
        the Licensee shall have no other claims against Licensor as a result of such errors.




Exensys Initial_ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _          Customer Initial_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _     Page 5 of 11
5.2     Error correction may also take the form of a statement of procedures or manners of
        application ("work arounds") whereby the error will have no significant effect on the
        Licensee's use of the Product. This limited warranty is void if failure of the Product has
        resulted from accident, abuse or misapplication. Any modification of the Product by anyone
        other than Licensor or its authorized contractors or partners voids the foregoing warranty
        on any portion of the Product modified or affected by such modification.

5.3     The Product is provided “As Is” and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, Licensor makes
        no other warranties or representations and accepts no other conditions in relation to the
        Product. Accordingly, the Licensee shall have no right to raise claims against Licensor if the
        Product contains errors and inconveniences not covered by Clause 5.1, and Licensor does
        not correct such errors or inconveniences or where the operation and performance of the
        Product are not free of interruptions or errors.

6.      Limitation of Liability
6.1     In no event and no matter the circumstances shall Licensor be liable for any loss of
        anticipated profit, loss of data, damage to records or data or any indirect, special, incidental
        or consequential damages or loss (collectively “losses”) (which for purposes of this License
        Agreement shall be deemed to include, but not be limited to the loss of goodwill, or loss as a
        consequence of any kind of business interruption) arising out of or in connection with this
        License Agreement or the use or performance of the Product or services connected thereto
        even if Licensor was advised of the possibility of such losses and regardless of whether the
        cause of action is in contract or tort. Accordingly, the Licensee cannot claim, demand or
        seek recovery from Licensor for any of the foregoing losses, and Licensor will not indemnify
        the Licensee for such claims.

6.2     To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Licensor disclaims any product liability
        as a consequence of loss or damage to property which, in view of its nature, is normally
        intended for commercial use.

6.3     In all and any event, no matter the circumstances, Licensors’ total aggregate liability for loss
        or damage arising out of or in connection with this License Agreement or the use or
        performance of the Product or services connected thereto shall not exceed the amount of
        the license fee actually paid by the Licensee for the license to the Product.

6.4     Licensor shall have no responsibility or liability for any adjustments or other
        modifications in the Product or any service and support of the Product performed
        by the Licensee itself or provided by third parties or partners of Licensor. Further,
        Licensor shall have no responsibility or liability for any defects which are a
        consequence of external factors, including other Products, or a consequence of the
         integration of or interaction between the Product and the Licensee’s own hardware and
        software environments.

        Nothing in this Clause 6 shall be construed as limiting Licensor’s liability:




Exensys Initial_ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _           Customer Initial_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _        Page 6 of 11
          (a) for personal injury or death arising as a result of its own negligence or that of its agents
              or subcontractors; or
          (b) Arising as a result of its fraudulent act.

6.5     Any person who is not party to this License Agreement shall have no right under the
        Contracts or similar legislation in other countries where applicable or otherwise to enforce
        any term of this License Agreement.

7.      Proprietary & Confidential Information
7.1     To the extent allowed by the Texas Public Information Act, the Licensee acknowledges that
        the Products constitute Proprietary and Confidential Information of the Licensor and that
        the protection of this Confidential Information is of highest importance and that the
        Licensor may employ protection methods within Products to prevent unauthorized use of
        the Products. The Licensee agrees, to the extent allowed by the Texas Public Information
        Act, to keep the Products in strict confidence, to take appropriate steps to ensure that
        Persons authorized to have access to and display of the Products and its processes to enable
        the Licensee to use the Products as contemplated by this License Agreement have been
        advised of and have agreed to treat the Products in strict confidentiality in accordance with
        this License Agreement.

7.2     The Licensee shall not lend, sell, give, sub license, lease, assign, share or otherwise part with
        or disclose the Products and license keys or the Confidential Information, or any associated
        Products derived or developed from the Products without the prior written approval of the
        Licensor, which approval may be given or withheld by the Licensor in its absolute discretion.

7.3     The Licensee agrees that any unauthorized use or download or disclosure of the Confidential
        Information, whether for commercial or non commercial purposes, for consideration or
        otherwise either directly or indirectly, by the Licensee, shall constitute theft,
        misappropriation and a criminal breach of trust on the part of the Licensee and a breach of
        undertaking made by the Licensee under this Agreement.

7.4     It is expressly agreed to by the Licensee that upon the expiry of the Term or the sooner
        termination of this Agreement, the Licensee shall, subject to applicable records retention
        laws and policies, return all documents, data, literature, and destroy/delete any material, etc.,
        comprising Confidential Information to the Licensor or at the request of the Licensor
        destroy such Confidential Information and provide proof and certification thereof, to the
        satisfaction of the Licensor. The Licensee further agrees and undertakes that the obligation
        and undertaking to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information shall survive
        the termination of this agreement. The Licensee shall remove all copies and discontinue all
        use of the Products. The Licensee agrees that by virtue of allowing the use of the Products,
        no title to the Intellectual Property is transferred. The Licensee further acknowledges that
        the title and full ownership rights continue to remain with the Licensor.

7.5     The Licensee agrees not to disclose the terms and conditions of this agreement to any third
        party except as required by any provisions of law.

        The Licensee shall have no right to sell/rent out/lend or in any other way transfer or assign
        the right to use the Product or any right or obligation under this License Agreement to any
        third party without the prior written consent of Licensor. Where such consent is obtained,
        the transfer shall be executed according to the guidelines for such transfer set by Licensor.

8.2     By Licensors

        Agreement in whole or in part to another company within the Licensor Group or a third

        otherwise owed by Licensee under this Agreement (or any Amendment to this Agreement,
        Purchase Order Form or other similar document related hereto). Within seven (7) days of
        termination of this Agreement, Licensee shall pay to Licensor all unpaid License Fees or

                Information, or has returned to Licensor the Products and all copies made thereof.

                necessary to implement the termination provisions of this License Agreement, each
                of the parties waives any right it has, or obligation that the other party may have,
                now or in the future under any applicable law or regulation, to request or obtain the
                approval, order, decision or judgment of any court to terminate this License

11      General Provisions

11.1    Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
        This License Agreement shall be construed, interpreted and applied in accordance with, and
        shall be governed by, the laws of the State of Texas. Nothing herein shall be construed to
        waive the sovereign immunity of the State of Texas.

11.2    Notice
        Notices shall be in accordance with Section 11.A. of the DIR Contract No. DIR-SDD-875.
        All notices, including notices of address change, required to be sent hereunder shall be in
        writing and shall be deemed to have been given when mailed by first class mail or personal
        delivery (including overnight mail by private carrier) to the Licensees or Licensor’s address
        mentioned above as the case may be. To expedite order processing, Licensee agrees that
        Licensor may treat documents legibly faxed by Licensee to Licensor as original documents;
        nevertheless, either party may require the other to exchange original signed documents.

11.3    Severance
        Whenever possible, each provision of this License shall be interpreted in such manner as to
        be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this License is held to be
        invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law or rule in any
        jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or enforceability shall not affect any other provision or
        any other jurisdiction, but this License shall be served, reformed, construed and enforced as
        if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions had never been contained herein.

11.4    Waiver
        If either party does not exercise, or delays exercising, a right or remedy provided by this
        License Agreement or by law, that failure or delay will not amount to a waiver of that right
        or remedy by that party. The fact that a party does exercise a right or remedy provided by
