Such terms, together with these Terms and Conditions shall constitute the entire agreement between the parties, shall supersede and replace all other prior written or oral agreements between the parties (or any of their predecessors) respecting the subject matter and may only be amended by both parties in writing.
Buyer shall not resell or license to, make available for use by, or otherwise transfer title to or possession of any product to any other end user or other third party, including any reseller, without the specific authority to resell such products from Supplier. For greater certainty, this Section 2 applies to Section 7 and Section 16 of these Terms and Conditions regarding the export, re-export and transfer of Supplier’s products, documentation and services to any other end user or other third party.
All products which consist of or include software (including operating software for hardware supplied by Supplier and software in object code format that is embedded in any hardware) and/or any documentation shall be subject to the End User License Agreement (“EULA”) attached hereto as Exhibit A.

For software and/or documentation delivered in connection with these Terms and Conditions, that is not produced by Supplier and which is separately licensed by a third party, Buyer’s rights and responsibilities with respect to such software or documentation shall be governed in accordance with such third party’s applicable software license. Buyer shall, on request, enter into one or more separate “click-accept” license agreements or third party license agreements in respect thereto. Supplier shall have no further obligations with respect to such products beyond delivery thereof. Where Buyer is approved by Supplier to resell products, Buyer shall provide a copy of the EULA and applicable third party license agreements to each end user with delivery of such products and prior to installation of any software. Buyer shall notify Supplier promptly of any breach or suspected breach of the EULA or third party license agreements and shall assist Supplier in efforts to preserve Supplier’s or its supplier’s intellectual property rights including pursuing an action against any breaching third parties.

Unless different payment terms have been agreed to with Buyer in writing, payment is due on date of invoice or the date product is shipped, whichever is earlier. If at any time Buyer is delinquent in the payment of any invoice, or is otherwise in breach of these Terms and Conditions, Supplier may, in its discretion, and without prejudice to its other rights, withhold shipment (including partial shipments) of any order, require Buyer to prepay for further shipments, and/or withhold the provision of any services, until complete payment has been received. Any sum not paid by Buyer when due shall bear interest from the due date until paid at a rate of ten per cent per annum. Buyer grants Supplier a security interest in products purchased under these Terms and Conditions to secure payment for such products. If requested by Supplier at any time, Buyer shall execute financing statements to perfect such security interest.
Delivery shall be Ex Works Supplier’s facility in Mississauga, Ontario (Incoterms 2010). Transfer of risk and title occurs on shipment. Shipping shall be by common carrier at Buyer’s cost.

Buyer accepts any delays caused by the export licensing process. This includes delays by Buyer to provide documents and other information in the possession and control of Buyer required by Supplier to obtain the individual export license.
