7. POLICING OF MARKS.

Licensee shall not institute any suit or take any action against a potential infringer or unauthorized user of any of the Marks (except to the extent such potential infringer or unauthorized user is using a Mark in conjunction with any Licensee trademark and such suit or other action is limited to the enforcement by Licensee of only Licensee's trademarks) unless such suit or action is authorized by GlobalPlatform in writing. Any award, or portion of an award, recovered by GlobalPlatform in any such action or proceeding commenced by GlobalPlatform shall belong solely to GlobalPlatform after recovery by GlobalPlatform and Licensee of their respective actual out-of-pocket costs.

8. DISCLAIMERS; INDEMNIFICATION.

LICENSEE HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IT SHALL TAKE NO ACTION AGAINST GLOBALPLATFORM, AND UNCONDITIONALLY RELEASES GLOBALPLATFORM FROM ANY AND ALL LOSSES, DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITIES WHICH LICENSEE MAY SUFFER OR INCUR ARISING OUT OF OR RESULTING FROM ANY THIRD PARTY ACTIONS OR CLAIMS, RELATING TO LICENSEE'S USE OF ANY OF THE MARKS.

IN NO EVENT WILL GLOBALPLATFORM OR ANY OF ITS MEMBERS, OR ANY OF ITS OR THEIR AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES OR PARENT ENTITIES, OR ANY DIRECTOR, OFFICER, EMPLOYEE, CONTRACTOR, OR AGENT OF ANY OF THE FOREGOING (EACH OF THE FOREGOING, A "GLOBALPLATFORM PARTY" OR COLLECTIVELY, THE "GLOBALPLATFORM PARTIES") BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, ANY MARK OR THE USE THEREOF, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR OTHER MONETARY LOSS, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH GLOBALPLATFORM PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES OR LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THIS AGREEMENT.

c. Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the GlobalPlatform Parties from and against all losses, costs, damages, claims and other expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) ("Losses") arising out of any claim that a third party intellectual property or other proprietary right is infringed in connection with Licensee's use of the Marks (including use by any sublicensees of Licensee) (each a "Qualification Mark Claim").

d. Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the GlobalPlatform Parties from all Losses arising from any third party claims relating to the products, services or activities of Licensee or any sublicensee of Licensee.

9. TERM. This Agreement shall be effective upon the date you click the "Accept" button below (the "Effective Date") and shall remain in effect for as long as Licensee has a valid Qualification from GlobalPlatform, unless earlier terminated in accordance with Section 10. The term of this Agreement shall automatically expire upon the expiration or termination of all of Licensee's Qualifications.

10. EARLY TERMINATION.

a. Termination without Cause.

(i) By Licensee. Licensee may terminate this Agreement without cause, provided that Licensee has given one hundred twenty (120) days prior written notice to GlobalPlatform of its intent to terminate.

(ii) By GlobalPlatform. GlobalPlatform may terminate this Agreement (a) immediately upon notice without cause if it is discontinuing the business of licensing the Marks and terminating all licenses of the Marks, or (b) by providing Licensee with one hundred twenty (120) days prior written notice of its intent to terminate, such termination to be effective at the end of such one hundred twenty (120) day period.

b. Termination for Cause. Prior to expiration under Section 9, GlobalPlatform or Licensee may terminate this Agreement for cause if the other party materially breaches any term of this Agreement. In addition and without limitation of the foregoing, GlobalPlatform may terminate this Agreement for cause for any one of the following reasons:

(i) Licensee violates or does not comply or cooperate fully with any material terms of this Agreement, including by way of example and without limitation, any requirement of the Trademark Guidelines or any provision of this Agreement relating to ownership, quality control or audits.

(ii) Licensee makes any assignment of assets or business for the benefit of creditors, if a trustee or receiver is appointed to conduct the business or affairs of Licensee, or if Licensee is adjudged in any legal proceeding to be in either a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy.

(iii) Licensee does not possess a valid GP Card Qualification and is neither a "Full Member" nor a "Participating Member" of GlobalPlatform in "good standing" (as such terms are defined in the GlobalPlatform By-laws).

(iv) Licensee fails to maintain compliance with the relevant standards on which its Qualification is based or any of the requirements for its Qualification, other than as contemplated by Section 10(b)(iii) above.

c. Notice of Termination for Cause. The party claiming a basis for early termination under Section 10(b)(i) or Section 10(b)(iv) shall give the other party thirty (30) days written notice of intent to terminate, and such notice shall state the basis for termination and the effective date of such termination (not to be earlier than the last day of such thirty (30) day notice period). If the party to whom notice of intent to terminate under Section 10(b)(i) was given fails during such thirty (30) day period to cure the condition giving rise to the notice, then such termination shall be effective immediately as of the end of such thirty (30) day period or such later effective date of termination stated such notice of intent to terminate. Termination pursuant to Section 10(b)(ii) or Section 10(b)(iii) shall be effective immediately without any notice required, regardless of whether either party has previously provided to the other party a notice of its intent to terminate the Agreement pursuant to Section 10(b)(i) or 10(b)(ii), and regardless of whether the party receiving such notice has or has attempted to cure the condition that gave rise to such notice. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if GlobalPlatform provides a notice pursuant to Section 10(b)(iv), then upon such notice and until such time as Licensee has cured the condition giving rise to such notice, Licensee is in compliance with all of the terms of this Agreement and this Agreement is in full force and effect, Licensee shall, at its sole cost and expense: (i) cease all use of the Marks, including without limitation, any electronic display of the Marks, (ii) cause all of its sublicensees to do the same and (iii) not in any manner state or imply that Licensee or any of its products or services have received a Qualification.

d. Termination in Specific Jurisdictions. In the event that (i) there is a Qualification Mark Claim made against GlobalPlatform or Licensee in a specific jurisdiction, (ii) there is a determination in a specific jurisdiction by a court of competent jurisdiction or by another governing authority that GlobalPlatform or Licensee does not have the right to use or enforce one or more of the Marks, (iii) GlobalPlatform reasonably believes that it may be unable to obtain or maintain rights to one or more of the Marks in a specific jurisdiction, or (iv) GlobalPlatform reasonably believes that use of one or more of the Marks in a specific jurisdiction could subject GlobalPlatform to a claim for infringement or any other liability, then GlobalPlatform may notify Licensee in writing that it is terminating or modifying the right to use the relevant Mark(s) in the specific jurisdiction. In the event of a notice of termination or modification based on clause (i) in the first sentence of this Section 10(d), Licensee shall, at its sole cost and expense, stop or modify use of the Mark(s) in accordance with the notice, within the timeframe required by a governmental authority, or within ten (10) days from the date of the notice, whichever is shorter. In the event of a notice of termination or modification based on any of clauses (ii) through (iv) of the first sentence of this Section 10(d), Licensee shall be permitted thirty (30) days from the date of the notice to stop or modify use of the Mark(s) in accordance with the notice, unless GlobalPlatform is required by a governmental authority to act on shorter notice.

In the event of termination for any of the reasons stated in Section 10(b), Licensee shall, at its sole cost and expense, immediately cease (and cause its sublicensees to cease) all distribution and use of any products or other materials displaying or causing the display of any of the Marks, and shall, within thirty (30) days after termination, dispose of or return to GlobalPlatform (and cause all of its sublicensees to do the same), at GlobalPlatform's discretion, all Marks and copies thereof in its possession or control (including without limitation, Marks displayed on or caused to be displayed by products or other materials which are on hand or in process at the time of such termination). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the phase-out periods for termination under Section 10(d) shall be as set forth in such section.

Following expiration or earlier termination and any applicable phase-out periods as set forth in Section 10(d) or 11(b), as applicable, Licensee will refrain from further use of the Marks or any mark similar to the Marks, and from further reference to the Marks, direct or indirect.

12. COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS. In performing its obligations under this Agreement, neither party will be required to undertake any activity that would conflict with the requirements of any applicable law, statute, rule, regulation, interpretation, judgment, order or injunction of any governmental authority ("Applicable Law"). Licensee shall take all reasonable steps under the circumstances to ensure that its advertising, promotional materials, documentation, and websites displaying the Marks comply with all Applicable Law. Licensee also agrees that its use of the Marks shall comply with all Applicable Law, including laws specifically relating to the use of trademarks.

13. PUBLICATION. Licensee agrees that GlobalPlatform may publish on its website and in other publications a list of the products and/or service providers that have received Qualifications, and are therefore eligible to use a Mark under this Agreement.

Licensee may not assign or transfer this Agreement or any right granted hereunder without the prior written consent of GlobalPlatform, and any attempted assignment without consent shall be void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee may assign this Agreement, including all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, to any successor of its business that at the time satisfies all of the conditions and requirements for each Qualification then possessed by Licensee; provided, however, that any such assignment will not relieve Licensee of any of its obligations under this Agreement, including but not limited to Licensee's continuing obligations under Section 6(b). Subject to the foregoing restrictions, this Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and assigns.

16. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement and the Schedules hereto contain the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and all prior proposals, discussions or writings are superseded hereby.

17. NOTICES. Except as otherwise provided herein, all notices to be made hereunder shall be given or made at the respective address of the intended recipient (for GlobalPlatform, as set forth in the preamble to this Agreement; and for Licensee, to the address specified by Licensee in Section 24 below), unless notification of a change of address is given by either party in writing in accordance with this Agreement. Where notices are required to be given in writing, such notices shall be by first-class or equivalent mail service, and the date of mailing shall be deemed the date the notice is given. Notice in writing also may be given by email, provided that a confirming electronic receipt is received by the sender. Notices to GlobalPlatform by email shall be sent to secretariat@globalplatform.org, and notices to Licensee by email shall be sent to the email address specified by Licensee in Section 24 below.

18. MODIFICATION, WAIVER. Except for the Schedules attached hereto (including the Trademark Guidelines), which may be amended by GlobalPlatform as set forth in this Agreement, none of the terms of this Agreement may be amended, modified, or supplemented, or provisions hereof waived, except by an express agreement in writing executed (including through an electronic click-through process) by both parties. Any waiver of a breach by either party is not a waiver of any subsequent or other breach. The failure of either party hereto to enforce, or the delay by either party in enforcing, any of its rights under this Agreement, shall not be deemed a continuing waiver or a modification thereof and either party may, within the time provided by applicable law, commence appropriate legal proceedings to enforce any or all of such rights. No person, firm, group or corporation other than Licensee and GlobalPlatform shall be deemed to have acquired any rights by reason of anything contained in this Agreement.

19. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement or portion thereof should be declared invalid for any reason, the invalid provision or portion thereof shall be deemed omitted and the remaining terms shall nevertheless be carried into effect.

20. CERTAIN CONSTRUCTION RULES. The Section headings used in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and in no way define, limit, extend or describe the scope or intent of any provisions of this Agreement. In addition, as used in this Agreement, unless otherwise expressly stated to the contrary, all references to days, months or years are references to calendar days, months or years, and any reference to a "section" or "schedule" is a reference to a Section of this Agreement or a schedule attached to this Agreement. A reference to a Section by number includes all subparagraphs contained in the Section.

21. INCONSISTENCIES. To the extent that the provisions of this Agreement and its schedules are inconsistent, the provisions of this Agreement will govern and control.

23. GLOBALPLATFORM'S REMEDIES.

a. Licensee acknowledges that its failure to comply with the terms of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, Licensee's duties after expiration or termination of this Agreement, may result in immediate and irreparable damage to GlobalPlatform, and GlobalPlatform may seek equitable relief by way of temporary and permanent injunction and such other further relief as any court with jurisdiction may grant or deem just and proper.
