  8. myAbakus LICENSES.

    1. Subject to the limitations of Sections 14 and 15, Nomad Web Ventures will indemnify Licensee and hold Licensee harmless against costs, expenses and liabilities upon any claim by any third party that myAbakus infringes or violates any copyright, trademark or trade secret rights of such third party, provided that: a) Licensee notifies Nomad Web Ventures within seven (7) days in writing of any notice of any such claim; b) Licensee cooperates with Nomad Web Ventures in all reasonable respects in connection with the investigation and defense of any such claim; c) Nomad Web Ventures shall have sole control of the defense of any action on any such claim and all negotiations for its settlement or compromise; and d) should myAbakus become, or in Nomad Web Ventures 's opinion be likely to become, the subject of a claim of copyright, patent or trademark infringement or trade secret misappropriation, Licensee will permit Nomad Web Ventures , at Nomad Web Ventures 's option and expense, either to: i) procure for Licensee the right to continue using myAbakus, ii) replace or modify the same so that it becomes non-infringing; or iii) terminate this license insofar as the use of myAbakus is concerned, and refund to Licensee the proportionate amount of prepayment fee paid to Nomad Web Ventures for the period for which such payment has not been earned. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, however, Nomad Web Ventures shall have no obligation or liability to Licensee under any provision of this paragraph if any copyright, patent or trademark infringement or trade secret misappropriation claim is based upon the use of myAbakus in a manner other than that for which it was furnished by Nomad Web Ventures or upon any modification by or for Licensee, in such a way as to cause it to become infringing.

    2. If myAbakus does not conform to and perform substantially in accordance with Nomad Web Ventures 's specifications, Nomad Web Ventures will endeavor to correct any failure of myAbakus to so conform or perform; provided that: a) Licensee gives Nomad Web Ventures written notice of any such claimed failure to so conform or perform within said fifteen (15) day period of the effective date; and b) such failure to so conform or perform is not, in Nomad Web Ventures 's reasonable opinion, a result of any modification of or damage to myAbakus or its operating environment or of Licensee and its Users failure to operate myAbakus in the proper hardware and software environment. Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of the foregoing warranty shall be that: a) Nomad Web Ventures will endeavor to correct within a reasonable time any reported failure of myAbakus to substantially conform to or perform substantially in accordance with Nomad Web Ventures 's specifications; or b) in the event that Nomad Web Ventures shall fail or be unable for any reason to correct any failure of myAbakus to substantially conform to or perform substantially in accordance with Nomad Web Ventures 's specifications, Licensee may terminate this license and cease using myAbakus, and Nomad Web Ventures will refund to User the full amount of any license fee paid to Nomad Web Ventures from the date any error is reported.

  9. SUBSCRIPTION. The Services are licensed on a monthly or longer time subscription basis, as selected by Licensee or its agent.

Access to the Services will begin (i) for trial versions after your acceptance of this Agreement and after Nomad Web Ventures receives and processes all the information, requested by the start-up interview form; and (ii) for paid for versions after your acceptance of this Agreement and after Nomad Web Ventures receives and processes all the information requested by the start-up interview form and payment information.

When Licensee subscribes and provides payment information, Licensee's or its Agent's (as applicable) Card or Bank Account will be debited, and will be automatically re-debited at the beginning of each applicable monthly or longer subscription term ("Renewal Term") at the then-current subscription rate to maintain access to the Services.

  10. TERMINATION BY LICENSEE. Licensee may notify Nomad Web Ventures to cancel the subscription prior to the beginning of each Renewal Term.
