11. Risk Allocation.
(a) EXCLUSION OF INDIRECT DAMAGES. NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY (NOR TO ANY PERSON CLAIMING RIGHTS DERIVED FROM THE OTHER PARTY’S RIGHTS) FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO DATA, LOSS OF BUSINESS, OR OTHER ECONOMIC DAMAGE), WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PARTY LIABLE OR ALLEGEDLY LIABLE WAS ADVISED, HAD OTHER REASON TO KNOW, SHOULD HAVE ANTICIPATED, OR IN FACT KNEW OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS BY ANYONE. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH ARE INDEPENDENT OF, SEVERABLE FROM, AND TO BE ENFORCED INDEPENDENTLY OF ANY OTHER ENFORCEABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
(b) MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY. OTHER THAN FOR CUSTOMER’S USE OR DISCLOSURE OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THE LICENSE GRANTED HEREIN, IN NO EVENT SHALL A PARTY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO THE OTHER PARTY (INCLUDING LIABILITY TO ANY PERSON OR PERSONS WHOSE CLAIM OR CLAIMS ARE BASED ON OR DERIVED FROM A RIGHT OR RIGHTS CLAIMED BY OR THROUGH SUCH PARTY), WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AT ANY AND ALL TIMES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT, IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE FEES PAID HEREUNDER DURING THE ONE‑YEAR PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE ACT GIVING RISE TO CLAIM. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH ARE INDEPENDENT OF, SEVERABLE FROM, AND TO BE ENFORCED INDEPENDENTLY OF ANY OTHER ENFORCEABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
(c) Intentional Risk Allocation. Each party acknowledges that the provisions of this Agreement reflect an informed, voluntary allocation between them of all risks (both known and unknown) associated with the transactions involved with this Agreement. The warranty disclaimers and limitations in this Agreement are intended, and have as their essential purpose, to limit the circumstances of liability. The remedy limitations and the limitations of liability are separately intended, and have as their essential purpose, to limit the forms of relief available to the parties.
(a) Notice of Breach; Cure Period. In the event of a breach of provision of this Agreement, the notice and cure procedures set forth in this paragraph shall apply. The non-breaching party shall give the breaching party notice describing the breach and stating the time, as provided herein, within which the breach must be cured. If a provision of this Agreement sets forth a cure period for the breach in question, then that provision shall take precedence over any cure period set forth in this paragraph. No cure period shall be required, except as may be provided otherwise in this Agreement, if this Agreement sets forth specific deadline dates for the obligation allegedly breached. If the breach is (i) of an obligation to pay money or (ii) a non-willful breach of an obligation of a party relating to the other party’s Confidential Information, then the breaching party shall have five business days to cure the breach after written notice thereof by the non-breaching party. If the breach is a willful breach of an obligation of a party relating to the other party’s Confidential Information, then the non‑breaching party, in its sole discretion, may specify in the notice of breach that no cure period will be permitted. If the breach is other than a breach of the kind described above in this paragraph, then the cure period will be 30 days after the notice of the breach by the non-breaching party.
(b) Termination for Breach. If a breach of any provision of this Agreement has not been cured at the end of the applicable cure period, if any (or upon such breach if no cure period is permitted), then the non-breaching party thereupon may terminate this Agreement by notice to the other party. This Agreement shall terminate automatically, to the extent permitted by applicable law in the jurisdiction or jurisdictions in question, if Customer makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, files a petition in bankruptcy, receivership, reorganization, or other like proceeding under any present or future debtor relief law (or is the subject of an involuntary such petition or filing that is not dismissed within 60 days after the effective filing date thereof), or admits of a general inability to pay its debts as they become due.

Any purported transfer or assignment by Customer of any right under this Agreement otherwise than in accordance with the provisions of this paragraph shall be null and void and a breach of this Agreement.

Each party represents and warrants that, in entering into and performing its obligations under this Agreement, it does not and will not rely on any promise, inducement, or representation allegedly made by or on behalf of the other party with respect to the subject matter hereof, nor on any course of dealing or custom and usage in the trade, except as such promise, inducement, or representation may be expressly set forth herein.
(j) Amendment. Except as otherwise provided herein, no modification or amendment to this Agreement will be valid or binding unless in writing and duly executed or acknowledged by the party or parties to be bound thereby (which may be accomplished in electronic form or by electronic means); provided, however, that PHY.net may amend or replace this Agreement upon not less than 45 days’ notice to Customer, such amendment or replacement to become effective upon the date specified in such notice unless Customer terminates this Agreement as provided in Section 2.
(k) Waiver. The failure of either party at any time to require performance by the other party of any provision of this Agreement shall in no way affect the right of such party to require performance of that provision. Any waiver by either party of any breach of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach of such provision, a waiver of the provision itself or a waiver of any right under this Agreement.
(l) Severability. If any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement should be ruled wholly or partly invalid or unenforceable by a court or other government body of competent jurisdiction, then (i) the validity and enforceability of all provisions of this Agreement not ruled to be invalid or unenforceable will be unaffected; (ii) the effect of the ruling will be limited to the jurisdiction of the court or other government body making the ruling; (iii) the provision(s) held wholly or partly invalid or unenforceable would be deemed amended, and the court or other government body is authorized to reform the provision(s), to the minimum extent necessary to render them valid and enforceable in conformity with the parties’ intent as manifested herein; and (iv) if the ruling, and/or the controlling principle of law or equity leading to the ruling, subsequently is overruled, modified, or amended by legislative, judicial or administrative action, then the provision(s) in question as originally set forth in this Agreement will be deemed valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by the new controlling principle of law or equity.
(m) Attorney Fees. If litigation or other action is commenced between the parties concerning any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled, in addition to any other award that may be made, to recover all court costs and other official costs and all reasonable expenses associated with the litigation or other action, including without limitation reasonable fees and expenses of attorneys.
(n) Injunctive Relief. Recognizing the unusual nature of computer software and trade secrets, Customer acknowledges that any violation by Customer of its covenants in this Agreement relating to PHY.net’s Confidential Information, including without limitation the Licensed Materials, would result in damage to PHY.net that is largely intangible but nonetheless real and that is incapable of complete remedy by an award of damages. Accordingly, any such violation shall give PHY.net the right to a court-ordered injunction or other appropriate order to enforce specifically those covenants. Customer agrees to pay PHY.net any reasonable expenses, including without limitation attorney fees and expenses, incurred in obtaining such specific enforcement (in addition to any other relief to which PHY.net may be entitled).
