If a third party claims that the Customer's use of the Service according to the Agreement infringes the rights of third parties, Goava shall as Goava finds appropriate to ensure that the necessary rights are obtained or change the Service or acquire other software or product that does not infringe, without expense and with such little disruption to the customer as possible, or terminate the agreement for termination with two (2) weeks' notice period. In addition to what is stated in this paragraph, Goava has no liability to the Customer as a result of infringement of the third party's intellectual property rights.

infringement to the product supplier immediately. If infringement is finally considered to exist or if, according to

11.2 If the Customer has not been able to use the Service in significant respects as a result of errors in the Service, the Customer is entitled to receive a reasonable reduction of the fee relating to the Service for the period from the notification of the fault until remedied by Goava, however with a maximum reduction corresponding to the fee for the current month.
11.3 Goava is only liable for errors in accordance with clause 11.1 if the Customer reported the error to Goava within a reasonable time after the Customer discovered the error and the Customer stated how the error was manifested.
11.4 If the error arises due to Goava's negligence, Goava is liable for damages with the limitation set forth in paragraph 12 below.
12.1 Liability for each calendar year is limited to a total amount of 100% of the annual fee for the relevant Service in question. For additional services, Goava's liability shall be limited to the total amount for that additional service.
12.2 In no case is a party liable for loss of profit or other indirect or consequential damages. Neither does the liability cover the counterparty's liability to third parties except in cases referred to in paragraph 4 or in respect of the Customer's liability under point 5.4. For the avoidance of uncertainties, the Customer's breach of the scope of the right of use shall always be regarded as a direct damage (i.e. 12.1 does not apply) that is reimbursable without limiting the amount according to clause 12.1.
12.3 Goava is not responsible for any loss of data in any case.
12.4 The limitation of liability under this clause 12.1 does not apply to personal injury or to liability for compensation referred to in paragraph 4 or paragraph 5.4 or if intent or gross negligence exists.

b) if the counterparty becomes insolvent, ceases its operations, dissolves, files for bankruptcy or bankruptcy protection, appoints receivers, or enters into an arrangement for the benefit of creditors.
13.2 Violations of provisions concerning the scope of the right of use of the Service shall always be considered as a material breach of contract which entitles the customer to the correction opportunity before termination only if Goava approves such possibility.
13.3 Termination must be in writing in order to be valid.
14.1 The Party undertakes not to disclose, without the other party's consent, to a third party during the performance of
the Agreement or for a period of three (3) years thereafter, such information about the counterparty's activities which
may be regarded as a business or professional activity or task which, according to law, is subject to confidentiality. As a
business or professional secret, Goava's price information and such other information as a party stated must always be
considered confidential, unless otherwise provided by law. The confidentiality obligation does not apply to such
information as the party can show to have become known to the party in other ways than through the Service or which is generally known.
The confidentiality obligation also does not apply when a party is obliged by law, court, authority or pursuant to binding
stock exchange rules, to disclose information. If the party is thus obliged to disclose information, before such
disclosure, the other party is informed of this if reasonably possible. If the Customer receives part of the source code or
other documentation that is included in the result of Goava's work and the copyright of such material does not pass to
the Customer, the Customer's confidentiality obligation with respect to the source code and documentation applies
indefinitely in time.
14.2 By securing confidentiality with personnel or other appropriate measures, a party shall ensure that confidentiality
as described above is observed. The party is responsible for ensuring that any sub-consultant, as well as his employees
who participate in the execution or use of the Service, sign a confidentiality connection of the corresponding content
and that such connection is followed.
Party that is prevented from fulfilling this Agreement of circumstance beyond his control and which he has not reasonably been able to count on at the time of the contract and whose consequences he could not reasonably have avoided, shall be exempt from liability for the non-performance and entitled to the advancement of time of performance. If the time during which the contract's performance is prevented exceeds three (3) months, the party is entitled to cancel the agreement in writing without obligation to pay compensation.
Party may not transfer the Agreement without the counterparty's written approval. However, Goava may, without the Customer's approval, transfer the Agreement to companies within the same group as Goava and transfer the right to receive payment under the Agreement.
Termination and other notifications shall be made through a messenger, a registered letter or an electronic notice to the counterparty's contact person at the address specified by the other party. The notice shall be deemed to have come to the other party
a) if submitted by messenger; at delivery,
b) if sent by registered letter; five days after shipment for mail delivery
c) if sent as an electronic message; upon receipt, when the electronic message arrives at the recipient's electronic address.
