LCPtracker, as a service provider on behalf of Client, shall not access, use, process or retain Client Data containing PII except as necessary to perform its obligations under this Agreement and the applicable Product Schedule except in strict accordance with the written instructions of Client, or as otherwise required for LCPtracker to meet its own legal obligations under Applicable Law.

11.3. Severability. If a provision of the Agreement or portion thereof is found to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable under Applicable Law, it shall not invalidate or render unenforceable the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of the Agreement. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to affect their original intent as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner.
11.4. Export Compliance. The Services may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions. Client shall not access or use Services in violation of any U.S. export law or regulation.
11.5. Anti-Corruption. Client acknowledges that it has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from any LCPtracker employees or agents in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate this restriction. If Client learns of any violation of this restriction, Client will promptly notify LCPtracker in writing.
11.6. Relationship of the Parties. The Parties are independent contractors. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the Parties. LCPtracker will reach out from time to time with opportunities to Client in relation to other LCPtracker product opportunities and Client consents to this. No employee, director, or officer of LCPtracker shall be held personally liable under this Agreement. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.
11.7. Waiver. No failure or delay by either Party in exercising any right or partial right, remedy, power or privilege under this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of that right, remedy, power or privilege.
11.8. Assignment. Neither Party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the other Party (not to be unreasonably withheld). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (including all Product Schedules), without consent of the other Party, to its Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets not involving a direct competitor of the other Party, provided that the assignee agrees in writing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and has sufficient funds to discharge the assignor’s liabilities hereunder. A Party's sole remedy for any purported assignment by the other Party in breach of this paragraph shall be, at the non-assigning Party's election, termination of this Agreement upon written notice to the assigning Party and payment of all sums owing under the terms of this Agreement.
11.9. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all exhibits and all Product Schedules, constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. No modification, amendment, or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and either signed or accepted electronically by the Party against whom the modification, amendment or waiver is to be asserted, and in order to effectively amend the terms of this Agreement, any amendment must specifically call out the Section of this Agreement to be amended.
11.10. Counterparts. This Agreement and any Product Schedule hereunder may be executed in one or more counterparts; each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
11.11. Force Majeure. In no event shall either Party be liable to the other Party, or be deemed to have breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement (except for any obligations to pay Service Fees hereunder by Client), if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by an event of Force Majeure (”Force Majeure” hereunder means any acts of God, government, war, terrorism, riot, fire, floods, earthquakes, explosions, strikes, lockouts, cessation of labor, trade disputes, breakdowns, accidents of any kind which are beyond the reasonable control of a Party, or passage of law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, which makes it commercially unreasonable to continue to have this Agreement in force).
11.12.Equitable Relief. Client acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by Client of any of its obligations under Section 2.2, would cause LCPtracker irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agrees that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, LCPtracker will be entitled to seek equitable relief from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, authorized representatives of the Parties have executed this Agreement effective as of the Effective Date defined above.
