models, notes, documents, samples, reports, plans, forecasts, methods of doing business, current or historical data, computer software and programs, codes and all other technical, financial or business information; (ii) all information of Discloser that is not known to the public, without

10.2 Non-Disclosure and Use. Recipient shall not use the Confidential Information of Discloser for any purpose other than in furtherance of this Agreement. Recipient shall not disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information to any person or entity other than Recipient’s employees,

If such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, Recipient may furnish only that portion of such Confidential Information that, in the written opinion of its legal counsel, it is legally
required to disclose, and Recipient agrees to make commercially reasonable efforts to obtain assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded to the Confidential Information.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Recipient’s legal department may retain an archival copy of all or any portion of Discloser’s Confidential Information to the extent required by applicable law or regulation or for the purpose of defending or prosecuting claims relating to this Agreement.

obligations of the Parties regarding the non-disclosure and use of Confidential Information exchanged under this Agreement will survive any return, retention or destruction of any Confidential Information.

Reseller for assistance in defending such Claim.
13.2 Indemnification by RMG. RMG will indemnify, defend and hold Reseller harmless from and against any and all losses, costs, liabilities or expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees) arising from: (A) a Claim resulting from the willful misconduct or grossly negligent acts or omissions of RMG, or (B) a third party Claim that a Direct Product, except for RMG Content licensed to RMG by third parties, infringes a United States patent or copyright, provided that Reseller (i) promptly notifies RMG in writing of such Claim; (ii) grants RMG sole control over the defense and settlement thereof pursuant to Section 13.3; and (iii) cooperates with any request by RMG for assistance in defending such Claim. Should any such Direct Product become, or in RMG’s opinion be likely to become, the subject of such a Claim, RMG may, at its option and
expense, (i) procure for Reseller the right to make continued use thereof, whether through obtaining a license or some other means; (ii) replace or modify such Product so that it becomes non-infringing; or (iii) request return of the Product by Reseller and refund the price paid by Reseller for such Product, less straight line depreciation based on a three (3) year useful life.

the indemnifying party (in such instance, the “Indemnitor”) of such Claim. No delay or failure to so notify Indemnitor shall relieve Indemnitor of its obligations under this Agreement except to the extent that Indemnitor has suffered material prejudice by such delay or failure. Within thirty (30) days following receipt of notice from the Indemnitee relating to any such Claim, but no later than fifteen (15) days before the date on which any response to a complaint or summons is due, if applicable, Indemnitor shall notify Indemnitee that Indemnitor shall assume control of the defense
and settlement of such Claim (a “Notice of Assumption”). If Indemnitor delivers a Notice of Assumption within the required notice period, Indemnitor shall assume control (subject to the Indemnitee’s right to participate at its cost and expense) over the defense and settlement of the
Claim and diligently defend the Claim; provided, however, that (i) Indemnitor shall keep Indemnitee fully apprised as to the status of the defense; and (ii) Indemnitor shall obtain the prior written approval of Indemnitee before entering into any settlement of such Claim asserting any liability against Indemnitee, imposing any obligations or restrictions on the Indemnitee, involving any admission on the part of the Indemnitee, ceasing to defend against such Claim or otherwise adversely impacting Indemnitee. If Indemnitor does not deliver a Notice of Assumption within the required notice period, or if, after the assumption of the defense by Indemnitor, Indemnitor fails to defend the Claim diligently to the Indemnitee’s reasonable satisfaction, the Indemnitee shall have the right to defend the Claim in such manner as it may deem appropriate. Indemnitor shall
promptly reimburse the Indemnitee for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Indemnitee, including attorney’s fees, in connection therewith to the full extent of Indemnitor’s indemnification obligation under this Section 13.

RMG only supports the then-current, generally available Software major release version, the immediately previous major release version, and all Update versions (including minor releases versions, path or hot fix versions). Customer acknowledges and agrees that there is no warranty of backward compatibility.
(A) Fees. RMG’s current rates for the Support may be updated by RMG at any time. However, any rate change shall not affect an unexpired Order for Support until that Support term renews.
(B) Non-refundable Support Fees. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Support Fees are non-refundable, notwithstanding any expiration or termination of an Order or this Agreement.
(C) Out-of-plan Charges. Any out-of-plan charges (including without limitation those incurred for after-hours Support, on- site Support, Training and Installation Services) will be invoiced by RMG
after they are incurred. Customer acknowledges and agrees that such charges are non-refundable.
- TERM AND RENEWAL
(A) Initial Support Term; Renewal. If purchased by Customer, the initial term of the Support Plan for perpetual Software licenses shall commence upon date of Product shipment, and shall continue for one (1) year, or such other period of time as agreed in writing in advance by the Parties (the “Initial Support Term”). After the Initial Support Term, the Support Plan will automatically renew for additional one-year periods (each, “Renewal Support Term”), unless one Party provides the other Party with written notice prior to the expiration of the Initial Support Term or the then-current Renewal Support Term, as applicable, of its intent not to renew the Support Plan. The Initial Support Term and any Renewal Support Terms are collectively referred to as the “Support Term”. Prior to the end of the Support Term, RMG will notify Customer of RMG’s then-current Support rates.

(C) Subscriptions to Korbyt. Support is included in all Korbyt subscriptions for the duration of the Subscription term.
- SUPPORT AVAILABILITY
RESPONSE TIME AND UPDATE FREQUENCY
- RMG Platinum and RMG Gold Support usually resolve most Customer issues on the same day. Certain issues that require more troubleshooting, Software changes, corrupted data bases, network issues,
policy and security issues, or system fixes may take longer. Under these situations, RMG provides the Customer with estimates regarding resolution. In any event, the response times and response update intervals listed are targeted response times offered on the basis of commercially reasonable efforts, and do not constitute a service level agreement, warranty or other commitment and have no penalty or other consequences associated with failure to meet such times.
INCLUDED SUPPORT SERVICES
HARDWARE EXTENDED WARRANTY PLANS
Two Extended Warranty Plans which continue the repair or replacement benefit for non-conforming Hardware (excluding RMG MAX Products and Third-Party Products) are available for purchase by Customer. Either type of plan must be purchased only at the time, and as part, of the original Hardware purchase for the full term of the applicable plan. Hardware Extended Warranty Plan with the Advance Shipper feature: Priced at a percentage of the current list price of all Hardware covered, as specified in the current price list, per year, Customer may select the Hardware Extended Warranty Plan with the Advance Shipper feature for the first three (3) years beginning with the original purchase of RMG Hardware Products, providing a total of three years’ warranty coverage. If Customer has purchased this feature, and it notifies RMG that Hardware provided under this Agreement does not conform to the applicable warranty, and RMG has issued the appropriate return materials authorization: (i) RMG will ship, at Customer’s expense, replacement Hardware to Customer; Customer may select and pay to receive the replacement Hardware the next business day after receipt of Customer’s notice, or pay for and use standard shipping instead; and (ii) Customer will provide paid transport to return the defective Hardware to
RMG’s facilities once uninstalled by Customer. RMG Networks Smart Screens are not eligible for Advance Shipper Support. Hardware Extended Warranty Plan (without Advance Shipping feature): In the alternative, Customer may select a Hardware Extended Warranty Plan priced at a lower percentage of the current list price of all Hardware covered, as specified in the current price list per year, that does not include the Advance Shipper feature. If selected, this Plan begins upon expiration of and continues the one (1) year limited Hardware warranty described under Exhibit C for two additional years, providing a total of three years’ warranty coverage.
With either Extended Warranty plan:
• Third Party Hardware is excluded from the Extended Warranty plans;
• The terms of Exhibit C, Section 2, Warranties shall apply to any Extended Warranty plan, except as expressly excluded or changed by this provision;
• For both plans, Customer will be responsible for removal and reinstallation of the Hardware and any associated costs and shipping costs each way for the type of delivery desired (overnight or standard shipping);
• RMG may elect, at its sole option, to use functionally equivalent re-conditioned, refurbished or new units or parts of any units as replacement units;
• RMG may substitute a functionally equivalent model if the Customer’s model of Hardware is no longer commercially available; and
• RMG retains the right to impose an NTF or equivalent fee for returned Hardware where RMG finds no non-conformity to the warranty.
