LICENSE AND SERVICES AGREEMENT
READ CAREFULLY: AUTODESK LICENSES THE SOFTWARE AND OTHER LICENSED MATERIALS ONLY ON THE CONDITION THAT LICENSEE ACCEPTS ALL OF THE TERMS CONTAINED OR REFERENCED IN THIS AGREEMENT.
By selecting the “I accept” button or other button or mechanism designed to acknowledge agreement to the terms of an electronic copy of this Agreement, or by installing, downloading, accessing, or otherwise copying or using all or any portion of the Autodesk Materials, (i) you accept this Agreement on behalf of the entity for which you are authorized to act (e.g., an employer) and acknowledge that such entity is legally bound by this Agreement (and you agree to act in a manner consistent with this Agreement) or, if there is no such entity for which you are authorized to act, you accept this Agreement on behalf of yourself as an individual and acknowledge that you are legally bound by this Agreement, and (ii) you represent and warrant that you have the right, power and authority to act on behalf of and bind such entity (if any) or yourself. You may not accept this Agreement on behalf of another entity unless you are an employee or other agent of such other entity with the right, power and authority to act on behalf of such other entity.
If Licensee is unwilling to accept this Agreement, or you do not have the right, power and authority to act on behalf of and bind such entity or yourself as an individual (if there is no such entity), (a) DO NOT SELECT THE “I ACCEPT” BUTTON OR OTHERWISE CLICK ON ANY BUTTON OR OTHER MECHANISM DESIGNED TO ACKNOWLEDGE AGREEMENT, AND DO NOT INSTALL, DOWNLOAD, ACCESS, OR OTHERWISE COPY OR USE ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE AUTODESK MATERIALS; AND (b) WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF ACQUIRING THE AUTODESK MATERIALS, LICENSEE MAY RETURN THE AUTODESK MATERIALS (INCLUDING ANY COPIES) TO THE ENTITY FROM WHICH THEY WERE ACQUIRED FOR A REFUND OF THE APPLICABLE LICENSE FEES PAID BY THE LICENSEE.
The words “Autodesk,” “Agreement” and “Licensee” and other capitalized terms used in this Agreement are defined terms. The definitions can be found in Exhibit A (if the terms are not defined in the main body of the Agreement).
1.1 License Grant. Autodesk grants Licensee a nonsublicensable, nonexclusive, nontransferable, limited license to Install and Access machine-readable object code copies of the Licensed Materials, in accordance with the applicable User Documentation and this Agreement, and to reproduce and distribute copies of the Licensed Materials in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. You may Install the Licensed Materials on one or more Computers in one or more locations; post and make available the Licensed Materials on a network file server in order to Install the Licensed Materials onto other Computers or use the Licensed Materials over such network; and make backup copies of the Licensed Materials. The Software is licensed as a single product and its components may not be separated for Installation, Access, distribution or use. You may make unlimited copies of the Licensed Materials and distribute such copies to other persons or entities, including downloading the Licensed Materials from the Internet or similar on-line source, so long as (i) all such copies contain this Agreement and the same copyright and other proprietary notices that appear on or in the Licensed Materials, (ii) You copy and distribute the Licensed Materials in its entirety, (iii) the Software (whether it is integrated with other technology as a component or as a standalone product) requires end users to access the complete Software Install process, including this Agreement, and (iv) You do not distribute incomplete, modified, reverse engineered, or otherwise altered copies of the Licensed Materials.
Upgrades and Previous Versions.
1.2.1 Effect of Upgrades. If Autodesk or a Reseller provides Licensee with an Upgrade to other Licensed Materials previously licensed to Licensee, the Licensed Materials previously licensed to Licensee and any other Autodesk Materials relating thereto will thereafter be deemed to be a “Previous Version.” Except as set forth in Section 1.2.2 (Exception for Subscription Licensees), the license grant and other rights with respect to any Previous Version will terminate one hundred twenty (120) days after Installation of the Upgrade. Within such one hundred twenty (120) day period, except as set forth in Section 1.2.2 (Exception for Subscription Licensees), (a) Licensee must cease all use of any Previous Version and Uninstall all copies of the Previous Version, and (b) upon expiration of such period, such Previous Version will no longer constitute Licensed Materials but rather will be deemed to be Excluded Materials and Licensee will no longer have a license for any such Previous Version. At Autodesk’s request, Licensee agrees to destroy or return to Autodesk or the Reseller from which they were acquired all copies of the Previous Version. Autodesk reserves the right to require Licensee to show satisfactory proof that all copies of any Previous Version have been Uninstalled and, if so requested by Autodesk, destroyed or returned to Autodesk or the Reseller from which they were acquired.
1.2.2 Exception for Subscription Licensees. The termination of rights as to Previous Versions described in Section 1.2.1 (Effect of Upgrades) may not apply to Licensee if and to the extent (a) Licensee has a Subscription and the Subscription Program Terms authorize Licensee to retain such Previous Versions or (b) otherwise authorized in writing by Autodesk.
1.3 Additional Terms. The Licensed Materials (or portions thereof) may be subject to terms (e.g., terms accompanying such Licensed Materials or made available in connection with ordering, installing, downloading, accessing, using or copying such Licensed Materials) that are in addition to or different from the terms set forth in this Agreement, and Licensee agrees to comply with such terms,
1.4 Other Materials. If Autodesk provides or makes available to Licensee any additional materials associated with the Licensed Materials, including any corrections, patches, service packs, updates or upgrades to, or new versions of, the Licensed Materials (including Upgrades) or any Supplemental Materials or User Documentation for the Licensed Materials, (a) such additional materials may include or be subject to other terms in addition to or different from the terms set forth in this Agreement (including, without limitation, additional or different fees, license terms, or restrictions on use), and Licensee agrees to comply with such terms, or (b) if there are no other terms for such additional materials, they will (except as otherwise provided by this Section 1.2 (Upgrades and Previous Versions)) be subject to the same terms (including, without limitation, the licenses, applicable License Type and Permitted Number, and other terms of this Agreement) as the Licensed Materials to which such additional materials apply. In no event will the foregoing result in any rights with respect to Excluded Materials.
1.5 Authorized Users. Licensee may permit the Licensed Materials to be Installed and/or Accessed only by Licensee’s Personnel (except as otherwise designated in the applicable License Type), and any such Installation or Access will be subject to any other requirements imposed by this Agreement and the applicable License Type and Permitted Number. Licensee will be responsible for compliance with this Agreement by Licensee’s Personnel and any other persons who may have Access to the Autodesk Materials through Licensee (whether or not such Access is authorized by Autodesk or within the scope of the applicable License Type and Permitted Number).
1.6 Third-Party Licensed Materials. The Autodesk Materials may contain or be accompanied by third-party software, data or other materials that are subject to and provided in accordance with terms that are in addition to or different from the terms set forth in this Agreement. Such terms may be included or referenced in or with such third-party software, data or other materials (e.g., in the “About box”) or a web page specified by Autodesk (the URL for which may be obtained on Autodesk’s website or on request to Autodesk). Licensee agrees to comply with such terms. In addition, Licensee will take sole responsibility for obtaining and complying with any licenses that may be necessary to use third-party software, data or other materials that Licensee uses or obtains for use in conjunction with the Licensed Materials. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that Autodesk has no responsibility for, and makes no representations or warranties regarding, such third-party software, data or other materials or Licensee’s use of such third-party software, data or other materials.
1.7 Subscription. Autodesk may offer, and Licensee may elect to acquire, Subscriptions for the Licensed Materials licensed to Licensee under this Agreement (and such Subscriptions may include rights in addition to or different from those set forth in this Agreement). Any Subscriptions are subject to Autodesk’s terms therefor, which terms are set forth in the applicable Subscription Program Terms. Licensee agrees that if it requests, accepts, or makes use of any Subscription, Licensee will be bound by such terms, as they may be modified from time to time in accordance with the applicable Subscription Program Terms (and such terms, as so modified from time to time, are a part of and incorporated by reference into this Agreement), and Licensee agrees to comply with such terms. Licensee acknowledges that Autodesk may require a further acceptance of such terms as a condition to providing Subscriptions.
1.8 Services. Autodesk may provide, and Licensee may elect to receive or benefit from, certain Services from time to time. Any Services are subject to Autodesk’s terms therefor, which terms are set forth in the applicable Services Terms. Licensee agrees that if it requests, accepts, or makes use of any Services, Licensee will be bound by such terms, as they may be modified from time to time in accordance with the applicable Services Terms (and such terms, as so modified from time to time, are a part of and incorporated by reference into this Agreement), and Licensee agrees to comply with such terms. Licensee acknowledges that Autodesk may require a further acceptance of such terms as a condition to providing Services.
1.10 Nature of Licenses. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that when Licensee acquires a license of Licensed Materials, a Subscription or Services, Licensee’s acquisition is neither contingent on the delivery of any future features or functionality nor subject to any public or other comments (oral, written or otherwise) made by Autodesk regarding future features or functionality.
1.11 APIs. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that any API Information and Development Materials (unless otherwise specified by Autodesk in additional or different terms associated with such API Information or Development Materials) (a) are confidential and proprietary to Autodesk, (b) may not be distributed, disclosed or otherwise provided to third parties, (c) may be used only internally and only in conjunction with and for Licensee’s own authorized internal use of the Licensed Materials to which the API Information or Development Materials relate, such as the development and support of applications, modules and components to operate on or with such Licensed Materials, and (d) may only be Installed on the same Computer(s) where such Licensed Materials are permitted to be Installed. Notwithstanding the foregoing or Section 3 (All Rights Reserved), if Licensee develops any such applications, modules and components in accordance with this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement will prohibit Licensee from using such applications, modules and components with (and porting such applications, modules and components to) other software and hardware (including the software and hardware of third parties), if such applications, modules and components (i) do not incorporate or embody any Development Materials or other Autodesk Materials (other than the API Information that was used in the development thereof in accordance with this Agreement) and (ii) do not disclose the API Information. For purposes of this Section 1.11 (APIs), (A) “API Information” means the standard applications programming interface (“API”) information generally provided by Autodesk to licensees of the Licensed Materials that specifies the requirements for interfacing to (e.g., invoking or directing the functions of) the software included in such Licensed Materials; and (B) “Development Materials” means SDKs and other toolkits, libraries, scripts, reference or sample code, and similar developer materials included in the Licensed Materials. API Information does not include any implementation of such interface information, any Development Materials, or any other software, module or component.
2. License Limitations/Prohibitions
Limitations and Exclusions.
2.1.1 No License Granted/Unauthorized Activities. The parties acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no license is granted (whether expressly, by implication or otherwise) under this Agreement (and this Agreement expressly excludes any right) (a) to Excluded Materials, (b) to any Autodesk Materials that Licensee did not acquire lawfully or that Licensee acquired in violation of or in a manner inconsistent with this Agreement, (c) for Installation of or Access to the Licensed Materials beyond the applicable license term (whether a fixed term or Subscription period) or outside the scope of the applicable License Type or Permitted Number, (d) for Installation of the Licensed Materials on any Computer other than a Computer owned or leased, and controlled by Licensee, unless otherwise authorized in writing by Autodesk, (e) to distribute, rent, loan, lease, sell, sublicense, transfer or otherwise provide all or any portion of the Autodesk Materials to any person or entity except as expressly set forth in this Agreement or as expressly authorized in writing by Autodesk, (f) to provide or make available any features or functionality of the Autodesk Materials to any person or entity (other than to and for Licensee itself for the purpose specified in the applicable License Type), whether or not over a network and whether or not on a hosted basis, (g) except as otherwise expressly provided with respect to a specific License Type, to Install or Access or allow the Installation of or Access to the Autodesk Materials over the Internet or other non-local network, including, without limitation, use in connection with a wide area network (WAN), virtual private network (VPN), virtualization, Web hosting, time-sharing, service bureau, software as a service, cloud or other service or technology, (h) to remove, alter or obscure any proprietary notices, labels or marks in the Autodesk Materials, (i) to decompile, disassemble or otherwise reverse engineer the Autodesk Materials, or (j) to translate, adapt, arrange, or create derivative works based on, or otherwise modify the Autodesk Materials for any purpose.
2.1.2 Licensed Materials as a Single Product. The Licensed Materials are licensed to Licensee as a single product and the applicable components may not be separated for Installation or Access (and all such components must be Installed and Accessed on the same Computer except as authorized in writing by Autodesk).
2.1.3 Territory. Except as otherwise authorized in writing by Autodesk, the licenses granted in this Agreement are granted only for the Territory. Nothing in this Agreement permits Licensee (including, without limitation, Licensee’s Personnel, if any) to Install or Access the Licensed Materials outside of the Territory.
2.1.4 Effect of Unauthorized Use. Licensee will not engage in, and will not permit or assist any third party to engage in any of the uses or activities prohibited (or any uses or activities inconsistent with the limitations described) in this Section 2.1 (Limitations and Exclusions) (collectively, “Unauthorized Uses”). Any such Unauthorized Use, and any Installation of or Access to the Licensed Materials provided under this Agreement, outside of the scope of the applicable license grants (including, without limitation, outside the applicable License Type and/or Permitted Number) or otherwise not in accordance with this Agreement, constitute or result in infringement of Autodesk’s intellectual property rights as well as a breach of this Agreement. Licensee will notify Autodesk promptly of any such Unauthorized Uses or other unauthorized Installation or Access.
2.2.1 Licensee may not (i) utilize any equipment, device, software, or other means to (or designed to) circumvent or remove any form of technical protection used by Autodesk in connection with the Autodesk Materials, or (ii) Install or Access the Autodesk Materials with any product code, authorization code, serial number, or other copy-protection device not supplied by Autodesk directly or through a Reseller. Without limitation of the generality of the foregoing, Licensee may not utilize any equipment, device, software, or other means to (or designed to) circumvent or remove the Autodesk License Manager or any tool or technical protection measure provided or made available by Autodesk for managing, monitoring or controlling Installation of or Access to Autodesk Materials.
2.2.2 Licensee may not utilize any equipment, device, software, or other means to (or designed to) circumvent or remove any usage restrictions, or to enable functionality disabled by Autodesk, in connection with the Excluded Materials. Licensee may not bypass or delete any functionality or technical limitations of the Autodesk Materials that (or that are designed to) prevent or inhibit the unauthorized copying of, Installation or Access to the Excluded Materials.
2.3 Exceptions to Prohibitions. The prohibitions contained in this Agreement, including, without limitation, this Section 2 (License Limitations/Prohibitions), will not apply to the extent that applicable law (including, without limitation, laws implementing EC Directive 91/250 on the legal protection of computer programs and laws of other jurisdictions relating to similar subject matter) does not allow such prohibitions to be enforced. In addition, this Agreement describes certain legal rights. Licensee may have other rights under the laws of the state or country where the Licensed Materials are acquired, and this Agreement does not change Licensee’s rights under the laws of such state or country if and to the extent the laws of such state or country do not permit this Agreement to do so. Licensee will bear the burden of proof in demonstrating that applicable law does not allow enforcement of any such prohibitions or does not permit this Agreement to change particular rights in such state or country.
3. All Rights Reserved
Autodesk and its licensors retain title to and ownership of, and all other rights with respect to, the Autodesk Materials and all copies thereof, including, without limitation, any related copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, and other intellectual property rights. Licensee has only the limited licenses granted with respect to the Licensed Materials expressly set forth in this Agreement, and Licensee has no other rights, implied or otherwise. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Autodesk Materials are licensed, not sold, and that rights to Install and Access the Licensed Materials are acquired only under the license from Autodesk. The structure and organization of Software included in the Autodesk Materials, any source code or similar materials relating to such Software, any API Information and Development Materials (both as described in Section1.11 (APIs)), and any other Licensed Materials identified as confidential or proprietary are valuable trade secrets of, and confidential and proprietary information to, Autodesk and its suppliers, and (a) may not be distributed, disclosed or otherwise provided to third parties, and (b) may be used only internally and only in conjunction with and for Licensee’s own authorized internal use of the Licensed Materials.
4. Privacy; Use of Information; Connectivity
4.2 Connectivity. Certain Licensed Materials may facilitate or require Licensee’s access to and use of content and services that are hosted on websites maintained by Autodesk or by third parties. In some cases, such content and services may appear to be a feature or function within, or extension of, the Licensed Materials on Licensee’s Computer even though hosted on such websites. Accessing such content or services and use of Licensed Materials may cause Licensee’s Computer, without additional notice, to connect automatically to the Internet (transitorily, intermittently or on a regular basis) and to communicate with an Autodesk or third-party website—for example, for purposes of providing Licensee with additional information, features and functionality or to validate that the Licensed Materials and/or content or services are being used as permitted under this Agreement or other applicable terms. Such connectivity to Autodesk websites is governed by Autodesk’s policies on privacy and data protection described in Section 4 (Privacy; Use of Information; Connectivity). Such connectivity to websites of third parties is governed by the terms (including the disclaimers and notices) found on such sites or otherwise associated with the third-party content or services. Autodesk does not control, endorse, or accept responsibility for any such third-party content or services, and any dealings between Licensee and any third party in connection with such content or services, including, without limitation, such third party’s privacy policies, use of personal information, delivery of and payment for goods and services, and any other terms associated with such dealings, are solely between Licensee and such third party. Autodesk may at any time, for any reason, modify or discontinue the availability of any third-party content or services. Access to and use of certain content and services (whether of Autodesk or third parties) may require assent to separate terms and/or payment of additional fees.
5. No Warranty; Disclaimers
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, AUTODESK AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE, AND LICENSEE RECEIVES, NO WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT, OR WARRANTIES OTHERWISE IMPLIED BY STATUTE OR FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE) WITH RESPECT TO ANY AUTODESK MATERIALS, SUBSCRIPTION, OR SERVICES (PURSUANT TO SUBSCRIPTION OR OTHERWISE) AND LICENSEE AGREES THAT LICENSEE ACCEPTS THE AUTODESK MATERIALS “AS IS.” ANY STATEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE AUTODESK MATERIALS, SUBSCRIPTION OR SERVICES AND THEIR FEATURES OR FUNCTIONALITY IN THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR ANY COMMUNICATION WITH LICENSEE ARE FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY, AND DO NOT CONSTITUTE A WARRANTY, REPRESENTATION, OR CONDITION. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, AUTODESK DOES NOT WARRANT: (a) THAT THE OPERATION OR OUTPUT OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, SECURE, ACCURATE, RELIABLE, OR COMPLETE, WHETHER OR NOT UNDER SUBSCRIPTION OR SUPPORT BY AUTODESK OR ANY THIRD PARTY; (b) THAT ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED BY AUTODESK OR ANY THIRD PARTY; OR (c) THAT AUTODESK OR ANY THIRD PARTY WILL RESOLVE ANY PARTICULAR SUPPORT REQUEST OR THAT SUCH RESOLUTION WILL MEET LICENSEE’S REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATIONS. NOTHING IN THE FOREGOING RESTRICTS THE EFFECT OF WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS WHICH MAY BE IMPLIED BY LAW WHICH CANNOT BE EXCLUDED, RESTRICTED OR MODIFIED NOTWITHSTANDING A CONTRACTUAL RESTRICTION TO THE CONTRARY.
6.1 Functionality Limitations. The Licensed Materials and Services (except for Licensed Materials designed for non-commercial use, such as Autodesk Materials designed to be used for household or other consumer purposes or licensed only for purposes of educational or individual learning) are commercial professional tools intended to be used by trained professionals only. Particularly in the case of commercial professional use, the Licensed Materials and Services are not a substitute for Licensee’s professional judgment or independent testing. The Licensed Materials and Services are intended only to assist Licensee with its design, analysis, simulation, estimation, testing and/or other activities and are not a substitute for Licensee’s own independent design, analysis, simulation, estimation, testing, and/or other activities, including those with respect to product stress, safety and utility. Due to the large variety of potential applications for the Licensed Materials and Services, the Licensed Materials and Services have not been tested in all situations under which they may be used. Autodesk will not be liable in any manner whatsoever for the results obtained through use of the Licensed Materials or Services. Persons using the Licensed Materials or Services are responsible for the supervision, management, and control of the Licensed Materials and Services and the results of using the Licensed Materials. This responsibility includes, without limitation, the determination of appropriate uses for the Licensed Materials and Services and the selection of the Licensed Materials, Services and other computer programs and materials to help achieve intended results. Persons using the Licensed Materials or Services are also responsible for establishing the adequacy of independent procedures for testing the reliability, accuracy, completeness, and other characteristics of any output of the Licensed Materials or Services, including, without limitation, all items designed with the assistance of the Licensed Materials or Services. Licensee further acknowledges and agrees that the Licensed Materials form part of Licensee’s total unique hardware and software environment to deliver specific functionality, and that the Licensed Materials and Services provided by Autodesk may not achieve the results Licensee desires within Licensee’s design, analysis, simulation, estimation, and/or testing constraints.
Activation Codes and Security.
6.2.2 Disabling Access. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT INSTALLATION OF AND ACCESS TO LICENSED MATERIALS MAY BE DISABLED BY THE ACTIVATION, SECURITY, AND TECHNICAL PROTECTION MECHANISMS IF LICENSEE TRIES TO TRANSFER ALL OR A PART OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS TO ANOTHER COMPUTER, IF LICENSEE TAMPERS WITH THE TECHNICAL PROTECTION MECHANISMS OR DATE-SETTING MECHANISMS ON A COMPUTER OR IN THE LICENSED MATERIALS, IF LICENSEE USES THE LICENSED MATERIALS PAST AN APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD OR FIXED TERM, OR IF LICENSEE UNDERTAKES CERTAIN OTHER ACTIONS THAT AFFECT THE SECURITY MODE OR UNDER OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES AND THAT, IN ANY SUCH EVENT, LICENSEE’S ACCESS TO LICENSEE’S WORK PRODUCT AND OTHER DATA MAY BE AFFECTED. MORE INFORMATION IS CONTAINED IN THE APPLICABLE LICENSED MATERIALS OR AVAILABLE FROM AUTODESK ON REQUEST.
6.2.3 Effect of Activation Codes. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that receipt of an activation code (whether or not provided to Licensee in error) will not constitute evidence of or affect the scope of Licensee’s license rights. Those rights will be only as set forth in this Agreement and the applicable License Identification.
6.3 Affected Data. Work product and other data created with Licensed Materials made available under certain License Types, including licenses that limit the permitted purpose to educational purposes or personal learning purposes, may contain certain notices and limitations that make the work product and other data usable only in certain circumstances (e.g., only in the education field). In addition, if Licensee combines or links work product or other data created with such Licensed Materials with work product or other data otherwise created, then such other work product or data may also be affected by these notices and limitations. Autodesk will have no responsibility or liability whatsoever if Licensee combines or links work product or other data created with such Licensed Materials with work product or other data otherwise created. In addition, Licensee will not remove, alter or obscure any such notices or limitations.
7.1 Limitation on Type and Amount of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL AUTODESK OR ITS SUPPLIERS HAVE ANY LIABILITY (DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY) FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, USE, REVENUE, OR DATA; OR FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION (REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY FOR SEEKING SUCH DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY). IN ADDITION, THE LIABILITY OF AUTODESK AND ITS SUPPLIERS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY AUTODESK MATERIALS, SUBSCRIPTION OR SERVICES WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID OR PAYABLE BY LICENSEE FOR SUCH AUTODESK MATERIALS, SUBSCRIPTION, OR SERVICES, RESPECTIVELY.
7.2 Application of and Basis for Limitations. THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS SECTION 7 (LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY) WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW TO ANY DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY, HOWEVER CAUSED AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER DERIVED FROM CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF AUTODESK HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LIABILITY AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE LIMITED REMEDIES AVAILABLE HEREUNDER FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. ALSO, LICENSEE AGREES THAT THE LICENSE, SUBSCRIPTION AND SERVICES FEES AND OTHER FEES CHARGED BY AUTODESK AND PAID BY LICENSEE ARE BASED ON AND REFLECTIVE OF THE ALLOCATION OF RISK CONTEMPLATED BY THIS SECTION 7 (LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY) AND THAT THE LIABILITY LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 7 (LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY) ARE AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
8.1 Term; Termination or Suspension. Each license under this Agreement, with respect to each specific set of Licensed Materials covered by this Agreement, will become effective as of the latest to occur of: (a) this Agreement becoming effective, (b) payment by Licensee of the applicable fees, excluding licenses (such as evaluation licenses) where no fees are required, (c) delivery of the specific Licensed Materials, and (d) in the case of Autodesk Materials provided in connection with a Subscription, upon commencement of the applicable Subscription period. Each of Autodesk or Licensee may terminate this Agreement, Licensee’s license as to Licensed Materials, Licensee’s Subscription, and/or the provision of Services relating to the Licensed Materials if the other party is in breach of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within ten (10) days after written notice of the breach: however, if Licensee is in breach of Section 1 (License) or Section 2 (License Limitations/Prohibitions), Autodesk may terminate this Agreement, Licensee’s license as to Licensed Materials, Licensee’s Subscription, and/or the provision of Services relating to the Licensed Materials immediately upon written notice of the breach. In addition, Autodesk may, as an alternative to termination, suspend Licensee’s license as to the Licensed Materials, Licensee’s Subscription, the provision of Services relating to the Licensed Materials, and/or other Autodesk obligations or Licensee rights under this Agreement (or under other terms, if any, relating to materials associated with the Licensed Materials), if Licensee fails to make a payment to Autodesk or a Reseller or otherwise fails to comply with the provisions of this Agreement or other terms relating to any such license, Subscription, Services, or other associated materials. Autodesk may also terminate this Agreement if Licensee becomes subject to bankruptcy proceedings, becomes insolvent, or makes an arrangement with Licensee’s creditors. This Agreement will terminate automatically without further notice or action by Autodesk if Licensee goes into liquidation. In the context of any bankruptcy proceeding, Licensee acknowledges and agrees this Agreement is and shall be treated as an executory contract that may not be assumed and/or assigned without Autodesk's prior written consent, which consent may be withheld in Autodesk's sole and absolute discretion whether pursuant to Section 365(c)(1) of Title 11 of the United States Code or any other applicable law respecting the treatment of executory contracts within bankruptcy. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that Autodesk may assign or sub-contract any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement.
8.2 Effect of Termination of Agreement or License. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, the licenses granted hereunder will terminate. Upon termination or expiration of any license granted to Licensee, Licensee must cease all use of Autodesk Materials to which such license applies, any Subscription (including, without limitation, associated services), and any Services and Uninstall all copies of the Autodesk Materials. At Autodesk’s request, Licensee agrees to destroy or return to Autodesk or the Reseller from which they were acquired all Autodesk Materials. Autodesk reserves the right to require Licensee to show satisfactory proof that all copies of the Autodesk Materials have been Uninstalled and, if so requested by Autodesk, destroyed or returned to Autodesk or the Reseller from which they were acquired. If Licensee’s Subscription is terminated or expires, but this Agreement and Licensee’s license to the Licensed Materials remains in effect, any rights of Licensee based on the Subscription (including, without limitation, rights with respect to Previous Versions) will terminate, and (unless otherwise authorized by the Subscription Program Terms) Licensee must comply with the obligations of Section 1.2.1 (Effect of Upgrades) with respect to (including the obligations to cease use of, Uninstall and destroy or return) all copies of such Previous Versions.
8.3 Survival. Sections 1.3 (Additional Terms), 1.4 (Other Materials), 1.5 (Authorized Users), 1.6 (Third-Party Licensed Materials), 1.11 (APIs), 2.1.1 (No License Granted/Unauthorized Activities), 2.1.4 (Effect of Unauthorized Use), 2.2 (Circumvention), 3 (All Rights Reserved), 4 (Privacy; Use of Information; Connectivity), 5 (No Warranty; Disclaimers), 6 (Warnings), 7 (Limitations of Liability), 8 (Term and Termination), and 9 (General Provisions) and Exhibit A will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.

Nothing in the foregoing will prevent Autodesk from bringing an action for infringement of intellectual property rights in any country where such infringement is alleged to occur.
9.3 No Assignment; Insolvency. Licensee may not assign this Agreement or any rights hereunder (whether by purchase of stock or assets, merger, change of control, operation of law, or otherwise) without Autodesk's prior written consent, which may be withheld in Autodesk's sole and absolute discretion, and any purported assignment by Licensee will be void. In the context of any bankruptcy or similar proceeding, this Agreement is and will be treated as an executory contract of the type described by Section 365(c)(1) of Title 11 of the United States Code and may not be assigned without Autodesk's prior written consent, which may be withheld in Autodesk's sole and absolute discretion.
9.4 Autodesk Subsidiaries and Affiliates.
