10. COMPLIANCE WITH
LAWS; EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. You must not
resell, re-export, or provide, directly or indirectly, the licensed software or
direct product thereof, in any form without obtaining appropriate export or
re-export licenses from the United States Government and from the country from

technology, or software is transferred from one country to another by any
means, including physical shipments, FTP file transfers, E-mails, faxes, remote
server access, conversations, and the like. An export also occurs when
technology or software is transferred to a foreign national in the United States, or foreign national of the country in which the business activity is taking
place. A foreign national is any person who is neither a citizen nor permanent
resident of the United States, or the country in which the business activity is
taking place. Furthermore, if an export/import license, permit or other government
required authority (collectively referred to as “government authorization”) is
required to transfer technology, software, hardware or other Freescale property
to non- Freescale party(ies) and is not approved, then Freescale is not
obligated to transfer the Software under this Agreement until such “government
authorization” is granted..
11. GOVERNMENT RIGHTS.
The Licensed Software is a
“Commercial Item” as defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101, consisting of “Commercial

terms are used in 48 C.F.R. § 12.212 or 48 C.F.R. §227.7202, as applicable and
are only licensed to U.S. Government end users with the rights as are set forth herein..
RISK ACTIVITIES. You acknowledge that the Software is not fault tolerant
and is not designed, manufactured or intended by Freescale for incorporation
into products intended for use or resale in on-line control equipment in
hazardous, dangerous to life or potentially life-threatening environments
requiring fail-safe performance, such as in the operation of nuclear
facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control,
direct life support machines or weapons systems, in which the failure of
products could lead directly to death, personal injury or severe physical or
environmental damage (“High Risk Activities”). You specifically represent and
warrant that you will not use the Software or any derivative work of the
Software for High Risk Activities.
OF LAW; VENUE; LIMITATIONS. You agree that the statutes and laws of the
United States and the State of Texas, USA, without regard to conflicts of laws
principles, will apply to all matters relating to this Agreement or the
Software, and you agree that any litigation will be subject to the exclusive
jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in Texas, USA. You agree that
regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action
arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Software must be filed
within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever
INFORMATION. You must treat the Software as confidential
information and you agree to retain the Software in confidence perpetually, with
respect to Software in source code form (human readable), or for a period of
five (5) years from the date of termination of this Agreement, with respect to
all other parts of the Software. During this period you may not disclose any
part of the Software to anyone other than employees who have a need to know of
the Software and who have executed written agreements obligating them to
protect such Licensed Software to at least the same degree of care as in this
Agreement. You agree to use the same degree of care, but no less than a
reasonable degree of care, with the Software as you do with your own
confidential information. You may disclose Software to the extent required by a
court or under operation of law or order provided that you notify Freescale of
such requirement prior to disclosure, which you only disclose information
required, and that you allow Freescale the opportunity to object to such court
or other legal body requiring such disclosure.
LABELING. You are not authorized to use any Freescale trademarks, brand
names, or logos.
AGREEMENT. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and
Freescale regarding the subject matter of this Agreement, and supersedes all
prior communications, negotiations, understandings, agreements or
representations, either written or oral, if any. This Agreement may only be
amended in written form, executed by you and Freescale.
If any provision of this Agreement is held for any reason to be invalid or
unenforceable, then the remaining provisions of this Agreement will be
unimpaired and, unless a modification or replacement of the invalid or
unenforceable provision is further held to deprive you or Freescale of a
material benefit, in which case the Agreement will immediately terminate, the
invalid or unenforceable provision will be replaced with a provision that is
valid and enforceable and that comes closest to the intention underlying the
invalid or unenforceable provision.
WAIVER. The waiver by Freescale of any breach of any provision of this
Agreement will not operate or be construed as a waiver of any other or a
subsequent breach of the same or a different provision.
