12. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, Solodev and its affiliates and licensors reserve all right, title and interest in and to the Services, excluding any Customer or User Data or other confidential or proprietary information of the Customer or its Users, including all related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to Customer hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein. Customer hereby grants Solodev and its affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into Solodev’s services any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by Customer or Users relating to the operation of Solodev Services.
Unless otherwise specifically stated in the applicable Order, and excluding any Customer IP, as between the parties, Solodev shall own all Intellectual Property created in providing the Services or contained in the Deliverables.
Any Confidential Information disclosed by one party ("Disclosing Party") to the other party ("Recipient") in connection with this Agreement that is marked confidential or that due to its character and nature, a reasonable person under like circumstances would treat as confidential will be protected and held in confidence by the Recipient. The Recipient will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care) to (i) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its Affiliates' employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Recipient containing protections not materially less protective of the Confidential Information than those herein. Disclosure of the Confidential Information will be restricted to the Recipient’s employees, contractors, affiliates, or agents (including outside counsel and consultants) on a "need to know" basis in connection with the services, who are bound by confidentiality obligations no less stringent than these prior to any disclosure. Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement or any Order to any third party other than its Affiliates, legal counsel and accountants without the other party's prior written consent, provided that a party that makes any such disclosure to its Affiliate, legal counsel or accountants will remain responsible for such Affiliate's, legal counsel's or accountant's compliance with this "Confidentiality" section.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Solodev may disclose the terms of this Agreement and any applicable Order to a subcontractor or 3rd Party Provider to the extent necessary to perform Solodev obligations to Customer under this Agreement, under terms of confidentiality materially as protective as set forth herein.
Each party may disclose Confidential Information relating to the Services to providers of goods and services for the engagement to the extent such disclosure is necessary and reasonably anticipated. Confidential Information does not include information which: (i) is already known to Recipient at the time of disclosure; (ii) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act or failure of the Recipient; (iii) is independently developed by Recipient without benefit of Disclosing Party's Confidential Information; or (iv) is received from a third party which is not under and does not thereby breach an obligation of confidentiality. Each party agrees to protect the other's Confidential Information at all times and in the same manner as each protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential materials, but in no event with less than a reasonable standard of care. A Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law, provided the Recipient gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party's cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Recipient is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Recipient for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information. This disclosure does not relieve Recipient of its confidentiality obligations with respect to any other party.
14. GENERAL PROVISIONS
This Agreement and each particular Order (if applicable) constitute the entire Agreement between the parties with respect to Solodev Services.

The parties agree that any term or condition stated in Customer purchase order or in any other of Customer order documentation (excluding Order(s)) is void. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency among the following documents, the order of precedence shall be: (1) the applicable Order, and (2) this Agreement, and (3) the Documentation.
Customer agrees that Solodev may publicly disclose that it is providing Services to Customer and may use Customer's name and logo to identify Customer in promotional materials including press releases.
To the extent any portion of this Agreement is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not invalidate this Agreement as a whole, but only that specific portion held to be unenforceable, and all other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
Any provision of this Agreement that, by its nature, is applicable to circumstances arising after the termination or expiration of this Agreement will survive such termination or expiration and remain if full force and effect, and no termination or expiration of this Agreement will relieve either party from any liability arising out of any uncured breach of this Agreement occurring prior to said termination or expiration.
The waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default and will not act to amend or negate the rights of the waiving party. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under this Agreement will constitute a waiver of that right. Neither Party may sell, assign or transfer any rights or obligations hereunder, nor delegate any duties under this Agreement whether by operation of law or otherwise, either in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the other Party, (consent not to be unreasonably withheld); provided, however, either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (together with all Orders), without the other party's consent to its Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a party is acquired by, sells substantially all its assets to, or undergoes a change of control in favor of, a direct competitor of the other party, then such other party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice. In the event of such a termination, Solodev will refund to Customer any prepaid fees allocable to the remainder of the term of all Services for the period after the effective date of such termination. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Solodev and Customer agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, the Order, or the terms and conditions of use of any Third-Party Products, there will be no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.

Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction. If Customer learns of any violation of the above restriction, Customer will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify Solodev at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Customer may not transfer, assign or otherwise dispose of any of the rights and obligations granted or imposed upon it under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Solodev, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or denied.
