implement in our discretion (the "Updates"). Updates do not include additional features and significant enhancements to
existing features. You are the license holder of any third-party software products we obtain on your behalf. You authorize us

aggregate. You agree to provide us with reasonable and timely written notice of any claim, demand, or cause of action made
or brought against you arising out of or related to the utilization of the Applications and the System in which the Provider is
brought in as a co-defendant in the Claim. We have the right to defend any such claim, demand, or cause of action at our
sale cost and expense and within our sale and exclusive discretion. You agree not to compromise or settle any claim or
cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Applications or System without our prior written consent, and you are
required to assist us with our defense of any such claim, demand, or cause of action.

shall be extended to ninety (90) days if the default is not reasonably susceptible to cure within such thirty (30) day period, but

such default. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you breach your obligations in the section entitled "Software License" or the
section entitled "Confidentiality", then we shall have the right to terminate this Agreement immediately.

perform in compliance therewith.

15. Injunctive Relief. Both parties agree that a breach of any of the obligations set forth in the sections entitled "Software
License," "Ownership and Use," and "Confidentiality" would irreparably damage and create undue hardships for the other
party. Therefore, the non-breaching party shall be entitled to immediate court ordered injunctive relief to stop any apparent
breach of such sections, such remedy being in addition to any other remedies available to such non-breaching party.

prevented by any act of God, war, civil disturbance, terrorism, strikes, supply or market, failure of a third party's performance,
failure, fluctuation or non-availability of electrical power, heat, light, air conditioning or telecommunications equipment, other
equipment failure or similar event beyond its reasonable control; provided, however that the affected party shall use
reasonable efforts to remove such causes of non-performance.

17. Notices. Any notice or demand made by either party under the terms of this Agreement or under any statute shall be in

contained herein shall operate only between the parties and shall inure solely to their benefit. The provisions of this
Agreement are intended to assist only the parties in determining and performing their obligations hereunder, and the parties
intend and expressly agree that they alone shall have any legal or equitable right to seek to enforce this Agreement, to seek

action for the breach of this Agreement.

19. Miscellaneous. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of
Washington. No waiver by either party of any event of default under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver of any
subsequent default under the terms of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or
unenforceable, the validity or enforceability of the other provisions shall remain unaffected. This Agreement shall be binding
upon and inure to the benefit of Provider and Customer and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Except for
