      • (a)        CarSnoop may terminate this Agreement, effective on Notice to Dealer, if Dealer: (i) fails to pay any amount when due hereunder, and such failure continues more than ten (10) days after CarSnoop’s delivery of Notice thereof; or (ii) breaches any of its obligations under Section 2.4 or Section 7;
      • (b)       either Party may terminate this Agreement, effective on Notice to the other Party, if the other Party materially breaches this Agreement, and such breach: (i) is incapable of cure; or (ii) being capable of cure, remains uncured thirty (30) days after the non-breaching Party provides the breaching Party with Notice of such breach; or
      • (c)        either Party may terminate this Agreement, effective immediately upon Notice to the other Party, if the other Party: (i) becomes insolvent or is generally unable to pay, or fails to pay, its debts as they become due; (ii) files or has filed against it, a petition for voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or otherwise becomes subject, voluntarily or involuntarily, to any proceeding under any domestic or foreign bankruptcy or insolvency Law; (iii) makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or (iv) applies for or has appointed a receiver, trustee, custodian, or similar agent appointed by order of any court of competent jurisdiction to take charge of or sell any material portion of its property or business.
    • 12.4 Effect of Expiration or Termination.

No expiration or termination will affect Dealer’s obligation to pay all Fees that may have become due before such expiration or termination, or entitle Dealer to any refund.
    • 12.5 Survival. The provisions set forth in the following Sections, and any other right or obligation of the Parties in this Agreement that, by its nature, should survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement: this this Section 12.5 and Sections 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9.4, 9.5, 10, 11, and 13.
  • 13. MISCELLANEOUS.
    • 13.1 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with any other documents incorporated herein by reference and all related exhibits, constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, and representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. In the event of any inconsistency between the statements made in the body of this Agreement, the related Exhibits, and any other documents incorporated herein by reference, the following order of precedence governs: (a) first, Exhibit A to this Agreement, solely to the extent that Dealer is identified as part of the early adopter program in an Order Form; (b) second, this Agreement, excluding its exhibits; (c) third, the exhibits other than Exhibit A to this Agreement as of the Effective Date; and (d) fourth, any other documents incorporated herein by reference.
    • 13.2 Notices. All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers, and other communications hereunder (each, a “ Notice ”) must be in writing and addressed to the Parties at the addresses set forth on the first page of this Agreement (or to such other address that may be designated by the Party giving Notice from time to time in accordance with this Section 13.2). All Notices must be delivered by personal delivery, nationally recognized overnight courier (with all fees pre-paid), facsimile or email (with confirmation of transmission) or certified or registered mail (in each case, return receipt requested, postage pre-paid). Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, a Notice is effective only: (a) upon receipt by the receiving Party; and (b) if the Party giving the Notice has complied with the requirements of this Section 13.2.
    • 13.3 Force Majeure. In no event shall CarSnoop be liable to Dealer, or be deemed to have breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement, if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond CarSnoop’s reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, or passage of Law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo.
    • 13.4 Amendment and Modification; Waiver. No amendment to or modification of this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of each Party. No waiver by any Party of any of the provisions hereof will be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the Party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, (a) no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement will operate or be construed as a waiver thereof and (b) no single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder will preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
    • 13.5 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect their original intent as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
    • 13.6 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal Laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would require or permit the application of the Laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Delaware. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the licenses granted hereunder will be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Indiana in each case located in the city of Indianapolis and County of Marion, and each Party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding.
    • 13.7 Assignment Dealer may not assign any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations hereunder, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of CarSnoop, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 13.7 will be null and void. No assignment or delegation will relieve the assigning or delegating Party of any of its obligations hereunder. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
    • 13.8 Export Regulation. The Services utilize software and technology that may be subject to US export control Laws, including the US Export Administration Act and its associated regulations. Dealer shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Services or the underlying software or technology to, or make the Services or the underlying software or technology accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by Law. Dealer shall comply with all applicable federal, state, and local Laws, and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval), prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing, or otherwise making the Services or the underlying software or technology available outside the US.
    • 13.9 Equitable Relief. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 7 or, in the case of Dealer, Section 4, would cause the other Party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agrees that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity or otherwise.
    • 13.10 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is deemed an original, but all of which together are deemed to be one and the same agreement.
