5.4 Out of Scope.
Cloud Services specifically exclude Third Party Content, even if such Third Party Content interoperates with Cloud Services, can be accessed on or from Cloud Services, or is offered in an online marketplace provided by Siemens or any of its affiliates or business partners.

5.7 Protection of Customer Content.
Cloud Services will be provided using processes and safeguards designed to protect the integrity and confidentiality of Customer Content.

9. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT INDEMNITY
9.1 Infringement Claim Indemnity.
Siemens will indemnify and defend, at its expense, any action brought against Customer to the extent that it is based on a claim that Customer's use of an Offering as authorized under this Agreement infringes any copyright, any trade secret, or a patent or trademark issued or registered by the United States, Japan, or a member of the European Patent Organization, and will pay all damages finally awarded against Customer by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed in a settlement, provided that Customer gives Siemens (i) prompt written notice of the claim, (ii) all requested information and reasonable assistance related to the claim and (iii) sole authority to defend or settle the claim. Siemens will not admit liability or incur obligations on Customer's behalf without Customer's prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld.
If a permanent injunction is obtained against Customer's use of an Offering due to an infringement claim, Siemens may, at its sole option, obtain for Customer the right to continue using the Offering, or replace or modify the Offering to become non-infringing. If such remedies are not reasonably available: (i) Siemens will refund prepaid fees for the enjoined Offering on a pro-rata basis (a) for Hardware or Software licensed to Customer on a perpetual basis, for the remainder of an amortization period of 60 months from the initial delivery to Customer, or (b) for any other Offering, for the remainder of the Subscription Term for that Offering; (ii) any applicable licenses to such Offering will automatically terminate; and (iii) Customer will immediately cease to use the enjoined Offering and return all related Software in its possession. Siemens may, in its sole discretion, provide any of the foregoing remedies to mitigate infringement prior to the issuance of an injunction.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Siemens will not have any liability or indemnification obligation to Customer to the extent that an infringement claim arises out of (i) use of a prior version of the Offering to the extent that a current version is non-infringing, (ii) failure to use a replacement, correction, patch, or new version of the Offering offered by Siemens that performs substantially the same functions, (iii) use of the Offering in combination with Content, equipment, or products not provided by Siemens, (iv) use of No-Charge Offerings or Previews, (v) deliverables resulting from Professional Services, (vi) any adjustment, modification, or configuration of the Offering not made by Siemens, or (vii) instructions, assistance, or specifications provided by Customer.

10. RENEWAL, SUSPENSION, TERMINATION
10.1 Subscription and Renewals.
If indicated on the Order or otherwise agreed by the parties in writing or in an electronic system made available by Siemens, the Subscription Term for the applicable paid Offering will automatically renew for successive Subscription Terms unless either party notifies the other at least 60 days prior to the end of the then-current Subscription Term that it has elected not to renew. Any renewed Subscription Term will be the same length as the preceding term or 12 months, whichever is greater. The then-current UCA (or successor terms) and applicable Supplemental Terms available at https://www.siemens.com/sw-terms/uca
will apply for the following Subscription Term in lieu of this Agreement. The fees during any renewed Subscription Term will be the same as those charged during the preceding Subscription Term, unless (i) Siemens notifies Customer about different future fees at least 90 days prior to the end of the then-current Subscription Term or (ii) fees for the renewed Subscription Term(s) are specified on the Order.
Siemens may suspend or limit Customer's or any User's access to and use of Offerings, in whole or in part, immediately (i) if Siemens reasonably determines that the use of the Offering poses a security risk to the Offering, Siemens, or any third party, or subjects Siemens or any third party to liability, (ii) if Customer materially breaches this Agreement, or (iii) upon the occurrence of any of the circumstances that give Siemens the right to immediate termination under Section 10.3. The suspension or limitation may be made in addition to any other rights available to Siemens under this Agreement, will not relieve Customer of its obligation to pay fees, and will be lifted when the reason for such suspension or limitation no longer exists.
Neither party will terminate an Order for convenience during the applicable Subscription Term. Either party may terminate an Order for a particular Subscription Term based Offering with immediate effect in the event of the other party's material breach of this Agreement which remains uncured for a period of 30 days from receipt of notice specifying the breach; provided that such termination will only be effective with respect to the Offering affected by the material breach. Siemens may immediately terminate any or all Orders or this Agreement upon notice to Customer in the event of Customer's unauthorized installation or use of Siemens software, Customer's filing for bankruptcy or having bankruptcy proceedings filed against it, Customer ceasing to do business, any breach by Customer of Sections 2.3, 3, 5.5, 11, 12, or 13.2, or in order to comply with applicable law or the requests of government authorities.
10.4 Effect of Expiration or Termination.
Upon expiration of the applicable Subscription Term or termination of any Order for one or more Offerings or this Agreement for any reason, Customer's rights to access, use, or receive the affected Offering(s) automatically terminate. Customer will immediately cease using the affected Offering(s), remove and destroy all Software and other Siemens Confidential Information relating to such Offering in its possession or control, and certify such removal and destruction in writing to Siemens. Customer may retrieve Customer Content available for download for a period of 30 days after expiration or termination, provided Customer is in compliance with this Agreement and pays any applicable fees. After such period, all Customer Content may be deleted. Termination of this Agreement or any Order for one or more Offerings will not relieve Customer of its obligation to pay the total fees set forth in any Order, which fees will become due and payable immediately upon termination. In the event of Customer's termination for Siemens' material breach in accordance with Section 10.3, Siemens will refund a reasonable portion of any prepaid fees on a pro-rata basis for the remainder of the Subscription Term for the affected Offering(s). Sections 2.3, 2.4, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.7, 5.5, 6.2, 7.3, 8, 10.4, 11, 12, 13.4 and 13.8 survive termination of this Agreement.
11. EXPORT CONTROL AND SANCTIONS COMPLIANCE
Siemens' obligations under this Agreement are conditioned upon Customer's compliance with, and Customer will comply with, all applicable export and re-export controls, embargoes, and economic and trade sanctions laws and regulations, including in any event, those of the United States and the European Union ("Export Laws").

Customer will, at least once per year, review and update its list of Users who have access to any Cloud Services and confirm that no such User is a Sanctioned Person and that all such Users may continue to access Cloud Services in compliance with Export Laws. Siemens may conduct the necessary Export Laws checks and, upon request, Customer will promptly provide Siemens with any necessary information. Customer will be responsible for providing to and collecting from Users any information necessary to ensure compliance with applicable Export Laws (e.g. applicable export list numbers).

11.4 Right to Withhold Performance.
Siemens will not be obligated to perform under this Agreement if such performance is prevented by any impediments arising out of national or international foreign trade or customs requirements or any embargoes or other sanctions including, but not limited to, embargoes or other sanctions imposed by the United Nations, the European Union, or the United States.
12.1 Confidential Information.

Siemens' ultimate parent company or companies directly or indirectly owned or controlled by Siemens' ultimate parent company may exercise Siemens's rights and fulfill Siemens' obligations under this Agreement. Siemens may use resources in various countries to provide Offerings, including unaffiliated subcontractors. Siemens remains responsible for its obligations under this Agreement.
This Agreement will extend to and be binding upon the successors, legal representatives, and permitted assignees of the parties. However, this Agreement and the rights granted under this Agreement may not be assigned, sublicensed, or otherwise transferred (by operation of law or otherwise) by Customer without the prior written consent of Siemens. Any attempted assignment in violation of this Section will be void. Customer's assignment of this Agreement requires the prior written consent of SISW. SISW may assign this Agreement to its affiliates or to a company that succeeds to all or substantially all of its interests or assets and written notice of any such assignment will be given by SISW or its successor as soon as commercially reasonable. This Agreement will be binding on and inure to the benefit of the successors, representatives, and permitted assigns of Customer and SISW.
13.3 License Rights Applicable to the U.S. Government.
Offerings are commercial products that were developed exclusively at private expense. If Offerings are acquired directly or indirectly for use by the U.S. Government, then the parties agree that such are considered ‘Commercial Items' and ‘Commercial Computer Software' or ‘Computer Software Documentation', as defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101 and 48 C.F.R. §252.227-7014(a)(1) and (a)(5), as applicable.

The U.S. Government will only have the rights set forth in this Agreement, which supersedes any conflicting terms or conditions in any government order document, except for provisions which are contrary to applicable mandatory federal laws. Siemens will not be required to obtain a security clearance or otherwise be involved in accessing U.S. Government classified information.
If Customer provides any ideas or feedback regarding any Offering, including suggestions for changes or enhancements, support requests (including any related information), and error corrections (collectively "Feedback
"), Feedback may be used by Siemens without condition or restriction.
13.5 Force Majeure.
Neither party will be liable for delay or failure to perform any obligations under this Agreement (except with respect to any payment obligations) due to any cause beyond its reasonable control. The delayed party will promptly notify the other party of any such event.
Siemens may notify Customer under this Agreement by (i) posting a notification on Cloud Services or on the administrative user account that Customer maintains with Siemens to manage subscriptions to Offerings ("Subscription Console
"), (ii) sending an email or other text message to the address or contact number provided by Customer for business contact or then-associated with the Subscription Console, or (iii) sending an email to relevant Users. It is Customer's responsibility to regularly visit Cloud Services and the Subscription Console and to always provide Siemens with current email addresses of Customer representatives. If Customer does not comply with such obligation or if Customer's receipt of a notice fails because of technical issues related to equipment or services which are under Customer's or Customer subcontractors' control, notices will be deemed to have been provided to Customer three days following the date of such notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, notices regarding claims or disputes will always be sent to the party's address as specified in the applicable Order. A party may change its address for receipt of notice by delivery of written notice to the other party.
If Siemens provides a translation of the English language version of this Agreement, the English language version of this Agreement will control in the event of any conflict.

This Agreement will be subject to the applicable laws set forth in the table below, as set forth therein, without reference to any conflict of laws rules.

13.9 No Waiver; Validity and Enforceability.
The failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of such provision.

Indirect use of an Offering via hardware or software used by Customer does not reduce the number of Authorized User entitlements that Customer needs to acquire.
2.2 Changes to Supplemental Terms.
Enhancement of Offerings. Siemens may only update these SaaS Terms during a Subscription Term, provided any such update does not (i) have a material adverse effect on Customer's rights (e.g. with respect to Entitlements or service levels) or (ii) result in a material degradation of the security measures maintained by Siemens with regard to the Cloud Services or Customer Content.
