The entire risk arising out of use or performance of the Software remains with the User. User expressly assumes any and all risk associated therewith.

PROHIBITED USES. The User may not attempt to modify, decompile, reverse-engineer or disassemble the Software in any manner. A failure by User to comply with this prohibition shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement including, without limitation, the User’s license hereunder.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, ordinary negligence, shall OP and its affiliates be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of business information, or any other pecuniary loss) arising out of or in connection with the use (or misuse) of the Software by the User.

FORCE MAJEURE. OP will not be liable for, or be considered to be in breach of or in default under this Agreement on account of, any delay or failure to perform as may be required by this Agreement as a result of any causes or conditions that are beyond OP’s reasonable control and that OP is unable to overcome through the exercise of reasonable diligence. If any force majeure event occurs, OP will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the impact, if any, of the event on User.

AGREEMENT BINDING ON SUCCESSORS. The provisions of the Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto, their heirs, administrators, successors and assigns.

ASSIGNABILITY. The User may not assign this Agreement or the rights and obligations thereunder to any third party except without the prior and express written approval and explicit consent of OP.

WAIVER. No waiver by OP of any default by User shall be deemed as a waiver of prior or subsequent default of the same of other provisions of this Agreement.
