These Promotion Terms and Conditions (“Promotion Terms”) are expressly incorporated into and made a part of the Promotion Agreement Cover Sheet (“Cover Sheet”) (the Cover Sheet and Promotion Terms, collectively, the “Agreement”).
2. Term and Termination.
The Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and shall continue until the Promotion End Date specified on the Cover Sheet (the “Term”), unless earlier terminated as provided herein. Except as may be expressly agreed in the Cover Sheet, either party may terminate the Agreement in its entirety at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party thirty (30) days’ prior written notice of termination. Either party may terminate the Agreement in its entirety upon the other party’s material breach of the Agreement if such breach, where curable, has not been cured within ten (10) days after written notice thereof to such other party. Accrued and outstanding payment obligations, Sections 1, 3, 5.2, 6 and 8–13, and the last sentence of this Section 2 shall survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement.
3. Fees and Payment.
Fees to be paid by one party to the other party in connection with the Agreement, if any, are set forth on the Cover Sheet (“Fees”). All Fees are due within forty-five (45) days from receipt of an undisputed invoice sent to the party’s address identified on the Cover Sheet, and shall be paid in the currency specified on the Cover Sheet (or in Euros if no currency specified). The owing party shall be responsible for any sales, use or value-added taxes imposed by any taxing authority with respect to the Fees payable hereunder, provided that an owing party shall not be liable for any taxes related to the income of the other party. Except as may be expressly agreed in the Cover Sheet, each party shall be responsible for its costs and expenses associated with its performance under the Agreement.
4. Intellectual Property.
4.1 Licence to Marks; Restrictions.
The term “Marks” shall mean the trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, slogans and other identifying symbols and indicia of a party (“Licensor”). Each party hereby grants to the other party (“Licensee”), solely during the Term, a limited, royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable (except as set forth in Section 12) licence, without the right to sublicense, to use and display the Licensor’s Marks solely for the purpose of the Promotion. All use of a Licensor’s Marks by Licensee will be in the form and format approved by Licensor, and Licensee will not otherwise use or modify Licensor’s Marks without Licensor’s prior written consent. All goodwill related to Licensee’s use of Licensor’s Marks shall inure solely to the benefit of Licensor. Marks will at all times remain the exclusive property of the respective Licensor. Except as expressly set forth herein, Licensor does not, and shall not be deemed to, grant Licensee any licence or rights under any intellectual property or other proprietary rights. All rights not granted herein are expressly reserved by Licensor.
4.2 No Development.
EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THERE SHALL BE NO DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGY, CONTENT, MEDIA OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY BY EITHER PARTY FOR THE OTHER PARTY PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT. Any development activities relating to any technology, content, media or other intellectual property must be the subject of a separate written agreement between Uber and Company prior to the commencement of any such activities.
The term “Confidential Information” shall mean any confidential or proprietary business, technical or financial information or materials of a party or any of its affiliates (“Disclosing Party”) provided to the other party or any of its affiliates (“Receiving Party”) in connection with the Agreement, whether orally or in physical form, and shall include the terms of the Agreement. However, Confidential Information shall not include information (a) previously known by Receiving Party without an obligation of confidentiality, (b) acquired by Receiving Party from a third party which was not, to Receiving Party’s knowledge, under an obligation of confidentiality, (c) that is or becomes publicly available through no fault of Receiving Party, or (d) that Disclosing Party gave written permission to Receiving Party to disclose, but only to the extent of such permitted disclosure.
Except as required by applicable law, each Receiving Party agrees that (a) it will use Confidential Information of Disclosing Party solely for the purpose of the Agreement and (b) it will not disclose the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to any third party other than the Receiving Party’s employees or agents, on a need-to-know basis, who are bound by obligations of nondisclosure and restricted use at least as strict as those contained herein, provided that Receiving Party remains liable for any breach of the confidentiality provisions of the Agreement by its employees or agents. The Receiving Party will protect the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential information, but in no event using less than a reasonable standard of care. In the event Receiving Party receives a subpoena or other administrative or judicial demand for any Confidential Information of Disclosing Party, Receiving Party will give Disclosing Party prompt written notice of such subpoena or demand and allow Disclosing Party to assert any available defenses to disclosure. Upon request by Disclosing Party, Receiving Party will return or destroy all copies of any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party. Confidential Information will at all times remain the property of the Disclosing Party. The provisions of this Section 5.2 will expire three (3) years after the expiration or termination of the Agreement, except with respect to Confidential Information that constitutes “trade secrets” under applicable law for which this Section 5 shall survive indefinitely.
6. Privacy & Data.
During the Term and for one (1) year thereafter, each party shall maintain General Commercial Liability and, if required by law, Worker’s Compensation (or substantially equivalent) insurance. The General Commercial Liability insurance policy limits shall be the greater of (a) the limits required by applicable law or (b) the limits customarily maintained by companies in the party’s industry, in each case in such party’s place of incorporation or registration. All policies shall be written by reputable insurance companies in the jurisdiction. Such insurance shall be primary and non-contributing to any insurance maintained or obtained by the other party and shall not be cancelled or materially reduced without thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the other party. Upon a party’s request, the other party shall provide evidence of the insurance required herein. In no event shall the limits of any policy be considered as limiting the liability of a party under the Agreement.
