Such Third Party Software may include software and components that are subject to the GNU General Public License or other “open source” licensing terms or are otherwise subject to requirements that such materials be distributable or otherwise made available on a royalty free basis (“Open Source Software”). The applicable license for Third Party Software, including Open Source Software, may require BluVector to provide the Third Party Software to you and your End Users on the terms of a separate third party license, including in the case of Open Source Software, the terms of an “open source” license, rather than this EULA. By using the Product Solution and any Third Party Software, you and your End Users agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the applicable third party license(s). Under no circumstances shall the Product Solution or any portion thereof (except for Open Source Software contained therein, if any) be deemed to be “open source” or “publicly available” software.

The Product Solution contains a time-bomb that will cause the Product Solution to cease FUNCTIONING upon the expiration or termination of any Software License Term OR RIGHT TO USE THE PRODUCT SOLUTION.

You shall assume the defense of any action for which BluVector seeks indemnification with counsel reasonably satisfactory to BluVector. BluVector may employ its own counsel in any such case. You shall have the right to settle any claim for which indemnification is available; provided, however, that to the extent that such settlement requires BluVector to take or refrain from taking any action or purports to obligate BluVector, then you shall not settle such claim without the prior written consent of BluVector.
v. Limitation of Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT BLUVECTOR SHALL HAVE NO DIRECT LIABILITY TO YOU WHATSOEVER AND THAT YOU SHALL LOOK ONLY TO THE AUTHORIZED RESELLER FROM WHICH YOU PURCHASED THE PRODUCT SOLUTION AND/OR SERVICES AND NOT TO BLUVECTOR FOR ANY CLAIMS OR LIABILITIES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE PRODUCT SOLUTION AND/OR SERVICES AND/OR YOUR USE THEREOF.

Process in any such suit, action or proceeding may be served on any party anywhere in the world, whether within or without the jurisdiction of any such court.
z. Survival. Any provision of this EULA which contemplates performance or observance subsequent to any termination or expiration of any Software License Term, Hardware Lease Term or Services Term, or otherwise by its nature would continue beyond the termination or expiration of any Software License Term, Hardware Lease Term or Services Term, shall survive such termination or expiration of such Software License Term, Hardware Lease Term or Services Term and continue in full force and effect.
