herein wherever, and for the period of time that performance of any contract obligation is prohibited, prevented or
made commercially impossible by reason of any act or occurrence of Force Majeure or the effective order or
injunction of any governmental agency or court. “Force Majeure” shall mean acts of God, war, insurrection, defaults
or delays due to changes in governmental regulations, acts of governmental bodies or their employees or agents,
inclement weather, strikes, lockouts, boycotts, picketing actions of any employees or any labor organizations, the
inability to secure labor or any materials including gas, water, food, fuel or electricity specified or reasonably
necessary in connection with building, delivering and installing the Software Material through ordinary business
channels, fire, unusual delays in transportation, unavoidable casualties or other circumstances having a materially
adverse effect upon the ability of either party to perform as provided herein that are reasonably out of the control
of the party whose performance is deficient provided, however, that the Parties hereto shall resume performing
such obligations as soon as such circumstances have ended.
21. FURTHER ASSURANCE
Each Party agrees to execute such documents and waivers and generally do everything further that may be necessary
to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement.
21.1 The Software Materials may be subject to regulations imposed by governmental authorities (the
REGULATIONS) restricting the ultimate destination of such Software Materials. The LICENSEE agrees to
indemnify DUCEN against any liability DUCEN may incur in consequence of LICENSEE’s infringement of the
Regulations, where DUCEN has attempted to substantially comply in good faith with said Regulations.
21.2 This Agreement shall be conditional on the LICENSEE complying with all regulations for the purchase,
installation and use of the Software Material in the location specified in the Schedule and DUCEN shall be
excused performance under this Agreement if the LICENSEE fails to comply with any statutory requirement in
connection with this Agreement.
DUCEN shall be permitted to reference this Agreement in one or more press releases; otherwise, no public
statements concerning the existence or terms of this Agreement will be made or released to any medium except
with the prior approval of both Parties or as required by law. DUCEN and the LICENSEE are independent contracts
under this Agreement and nothing herein will be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency
relationship between them. This Agreement shall be construed as if drafted by both Parties and shall not be strictly
construed against either Party.
24. LAW AND DISPUTES
Any dispute, claims or disagreement arising out of or relating to this Agreement or to the breach thereof including
its interpretation, performance or termination, arising between the parties to the Agreement or any person acting
on behalf of the parties or claiming under this Agreement shall be referred to arbitration. A sole arbitrator, appointed
by DUCEN, shall conduct the arbitration. The laws of the State of Florida shall govern the arbitration. The decision of
the arbitrator shall be final and binding upon the Parties. This Agreement and the terms and conditions thereon shall
be governed by the laws of the State of Florida.
25. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
24.1 This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements, arrangements, proposals and undertakings between the
Parties in relation to the subject matter hereof (whether written or oral) and constitutes the entire Agreement
between the Parties relating to the subject matter hereof. The LICENSEE further warrants that they have not
relied on any oral representation made by DUCEN or any agent, employee or other representative or upon any
description, illustration or specification contained in any advertisements, catalogues or publicity materials
produced by or on behalf of DUCEN or in any correspondence between DUCEN and LICENSEE before the date
of this Agreement.
24.2 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 authorized signatory of each of the Parties. Any other terms,
conditions or provisions whether proposed by LICENSEE orally or in writing shall be of no effect and the supply
of the Software Materials or any other goods or services by DUCEN to the LICENSEE shall not constitute
acceptance by DUCEN of such other terms, conditions or provisions.
