To the extent permitted under applicable law, STFC shall not be liable in contract, tort or otherwise for any loss or damage, howsoever arising in connection with the Software. Accordingly, the Licensee acknowledges and accepts that it uses the Software at its own risk.
STFC shall not be liable for any indirect, special, or consequential damages, or loss of profit, whether such damages or losses are known, foreseen, foreseeable or unforeseen. Nothing in this Agreement shall limit STFC's liability for negligently caused death or personal injury or fraud.


In consideration of the disclosure by STFC to the Licensee of the Software, the Licensee undertakes that it will respect and preserve the confidentiality of the Software for a period of five years after the date of such disclosure (subject to clause 4.2 below).
The obligations contained in this clause 4 shall not apply, or shall cease to apply, to such part of the Software as the Licensee can show to the reasonable satisfaction of STFC:
has become public knowledge other than through the fault of the Licensee; or
was already known to the Licensee prior to disclosure to it by STFC; or
has been received from a third party who neither acquired it in confidence from STFC, nor owed STFC a duty of confidence in respect of it.

STFC may terminate the Agreement immediately on giving notice in writing to the Licensee if the Licensee commits any serious breach of any term of this Agreement and fails (in the case of a breach capable of being remedied), within 10 days after the receipt of a request in writing from the STFC to do so, to remedy the breach (such request to contain a warning of the STFC's intention to terminate).
Immediately upon the termination of the Agreement the Licensee shall destroy the Software and all copies of the whole or any part thereof and certify in writing to STFC that they have been destroyed.

The party affected by such circumstances shall promptly notify the other party in writing when such circumstances cause a delay or failure in performance and when they cease to do so. If circumstances continue for a continuous period of one (1) month, either party may terminate this Agreement by written notice to the other party.
No forbearance, delay or indulgence by either party in enforcing the provisions of this Agreement shall prejudice or restrict the rights of that party nor shall any waiver of its rights operate as a waiver of any subsequent breach and no right, power or remedy herein conferred upon or reserved for either party is exclusive of any other right, power or remedy available to that party and each such right, power or remedy shall be cumulative.
This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements, arrangements and understandings between the parties and constitutes the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof (save that neither party seeks to exclude liability for any fraudulent pre-contractual misrepresentation upon which the other party can be shown to have relied). The Licensee hereby warrants to STFC that the Licensee has not been induced to enter into this Agreement by any prior representations or warranties, whether oral or in writing, except as specifically contained in this Agreement and the Licensee hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to claim damages for any misrepresentation not contained in this Agreement or for breach of any warranty not contained herein (unless such misrepresentation or warranty was made fraudulently and was relied upon by the Licensee) and/or to rescind this Agreement. No addition to or modification of any provision of this Agreement shall be binding upon the parties unless made by a written instrument signed by a duly authorised representative of each of the parties.
Notwithstanding that the whole or any part of any provision of this Agreement may prove to be illegal or unenforceable the other provisions of this Agreement and the remainder of the provision in question shall remain in full force and effect.
The parties confirm their intent not to confer any rights on any third parties by virtue of this Agreement and accordingly the Contracts (Rights of Third parties) Act 1999 shall not apply to this Agreement.
This agreement shall be interpreted and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. The English Courts will have exclusive jurisdiction to deal with any dispute which has arisen or may arise out of or in connection with this Agreement, however STFC may enforce the Licensee's obligation of confidence in the courts of any jurisdiction having competence to issue an injunction directly enforceable against the Licensee.
