SMART does not warrant that the Software, or any portion thereof, works with any Interactive Display Device that is not a Licensed Product in the same manner that it works with Licensed Product. ANY USE OF THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS-IS" AND AT END USER'S OWN RISK. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SMART AND ITS SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NONINFRINGEMENT WITH REGARD TO THE LICENSED PRODUCT, THE SOFTWARE, AND ANY COMPONENT(S) THEREOF, AND THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT SERVICES. SMART DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE IS INTERRUPTION OR DEFECT FREE. SMART DOES NOT TEST THE SOFTWARE ON PRODUCTS NOT SUPPLIED BY SMART. END USER ASSUMES ALL RISK THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL NOT FULLY OR PROPERLY FUNCTION WHEN USED WITH PRODUCTS NOT SUPPLIED BY SMART. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES END USER SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS. END USER MAY HAVE OTHERS, WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

10.

13. GENERAL:

13.1 Confidentiality. End User acknowledges that the Software embodies confidential information of SMART and/or its suppliers and licensors. To the extent End User has access to any such information; End User agrees to use such information only for the authorized Use of the Licensed Products and Software. End User further agree not to disclose such confidential information to any other party and to protect such confidential information to the same degree it protects its own confidential information, but with no less than a reasonable degree of care. Software licensed under this License shall also be considered confidential information and, except as specifically permitted herein, shall not be disclosed to any third party.

13.2 Injunctive Relief. End User acknowledge that, in the event End User breaches any provision of this License, SMART will not have an adequate remedy in money or damages. SMART shall therefore be entitled to obtain an injunction against such breach from any court of competent jurisdiction immediately upon request without posting bond. SMART's right to obtain injunctive relief shall not limit its right to seek further remedies.

13.3 Assignment. End User may not assign this License or any of End User's rights hereunder (by operation of law or otherwise) without SMART's prior written consent which may be unreasonably withheld. For the purposes of this section, an assignment or transfer shall include any change in majority ownership or control of End User, including merger or other transfer of voting securities. SMART may assign this License without End User consent. Subject to the foregoing, this License shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties to it and their respective legal representatives, successors and permitted assigns.

13.4 Amendment. No modification of this License shall be binding unless it is in writing and is signed by an authorized representative of the party against whom enforcement of the modification is sought.

13.5 Language. Any translation of this License is done for local requirements and in the event of a dispute between the English and any non-English versions, the English version of this License will govern.

13.6 Governing Law. This License is governed by the laws of the Province of Alberta, Canada. Also to the extent permitted by applicable law, the parties irrevocably agree that any litigation involving this License, the Software, or a Licensed Product, shall be brought in the provincial courts in the Province of Alberta or the federal courts of Canada, as the case may be. End User agree that End User shall not assert any claim that End User is not subject to the jurisdiction of such courts, that the venue is improper, that the forum is inconvenient or any similar objection, claim or argument. This License shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.

13.7 Entire License. This License constitutes the entire understanding and License of the parties and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous representations, negotiations, tender documents, proposals, understandings and Licenses between the parties with respect of the subject matter of this License. If any provision of this License is held invalid, the remainder of this License shall continue in full force and effect.

13.8 Waiver. The failure by a party to exercise any right hereunder shall not operate as a waiver of such party's right to exercise such right or any other right in the future.

13.9 Force Majeure. Either party's failure to perform it obligations hereunder shall not be deemed a breach of this License if such failure is due to fire, strike war, civil unrest, acts of terrorism, government regulations, acts of nature, or other causes beyond the reasonable control of the party claiming force majeure.

13.10 Questions. Should End User have any questions concerning this License, or if End User desires to contact SMART for any reason, please write:

Should End User provide SMART with any suggestions, comments or feedback (including modifications or suggested modifications to any component of the Software, Licensed Product, or other SMART product) regarding the Software, Licensed Product, or other SMART product, SMART shall treat it as non-confidential and be free to use it for any and all purposes, without any compensation, acknowledgment or other obligation of any kind to End User.

13.12 Notices. End User may provide SMART notice hereunder by sending it to the above address, or such other address SMART shall most recently have notified End User, and shall be sent "Attention: Legal Department". Notice to the End User, including, without limitation, of upgrades or updates to the Software or this License, may be provided by SMART either by a) sending it to the End User's email or business address on record, or such email or business address as End User may have most recently notified SMART, or b) providing notification on the SMART Product Updater program, accessible through the "Check for Updates" selection in the "Help" menu tab.
