10. U.S. Government End Users Terms.
(a) U.S. State and Local Government Terms. This Section 10(a) applies only if you are a U.S. public entity other than a U.S. Federal Government entity. Fugue acknowledges that applicable law may prohibit some U.S. public sector entities from agreeing to binding arbitration to resolve disputes; in such case, the provisions in this EULA relating to binding arbitration shall not be applicable. In addition, if you are a U.S. public entity, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, THIS EULA WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE LOCAL LAW OF THE STATE OR COMMONWEALTH IN WHICH YOU ARE LOCATED.
(b) U.S. Federal Government Terms. This Section 10(b) applies only if you are a U.S. Federal Government entity (“Federal Government End User”). The Fugue Software, Ludwig, Compositions, and any accompanying documentation are commercial items that have been developed entirely at private expense. This license shall prescribe exclusively the Federal Government End User's use and disclosure of the Fugue Software, Ludwig, Compositions, and any accompanying documentation. If you are a Federal Government End User only, this EULA is hereby amended as follows:
(i) Dispute resolution and governing law: Any arbitration, mediation or similar dispute resolution provision in this EULA is hereby deleted. This EULA shall be governed by and interpreted and enforced in accordance with the laws of the United States of America, and dispute resolution shall take place in a forum, and within the time period, prescribed by applicable federal law. To the extent permitted by federal law and then only to the extent not pre-empted by federal law, the laws of the state specified in this EULA (excluding its choice of law rules) will apply. No equitable or injunctive relief, and no shifting of legal fees or costs, may be sought against the Federal Government End User except as, and then only to the extent, specifically authorized by applicable federal statute.
(ii) Any provisions in this EULA requiring any Federal Government End User to indemnify any party are hereby deleted and shall not apply. Any requirement for the Federal Government End User to give control of the defense for any claim for which the licensor indemnifies the Federal Government shall be subject to 28 USC 516.
(iii) Changes in templates: Subsequent updates to or changes in Fugue’s standard commercial templates for such agreements shall not be binding on the Federal Government End User, except by prior express written agreement of both parties.
(iv) Fees, taxes and payment: If the Fugue Software, Ludwig, or Compositions are licensed as part of a separate government contract between the Federal Government End User and a prime contractor, the provisions of such contract regarding fees, taxes and payment shall supersede any provisions of this EULA regarding same. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (a) express written agreement of the Federal Government End User shall be required prior to (i) any extension or renewal of this EULA or the associated fees or (ii) any change in the fees; (b) late payments shall be governed by the Prompt Payment Act and the regulations at 5 CFR 1315; and (c) no cost of collection on delinquent invoices may be sought against the Federal Government End User except as, and then only to the extent, specifically authorized by applicable federal statute.
(v) No waiver of liability or cause of action: Any provision requiring the Federal Government End User to agree to waive or otherwise not to pursue any claim against the licensor it may otherwise have is hereby deleted. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the parties agree that nothing in this EULA, including but not limited to the limitation of liability clauses, in any way grants the licensor a waiver from, release of, or limitation of liability pertaining to, any past, current or future violation of federal law and that no clause restricting users' statements shall be read to restrict the Federal Government End User's ability to pursue any course of action otherwise permitted by federal law, regulation, or policy, including without limitation making public statements in connection with any suspension or debarment action.
(vi) Audit: Any clauses in this EULA allowing for an audit of the Federal Government End User's records or information systems, or verification of its compliance with this EULA generally, shall be subject to the Federal Government End User's requirements pertaining to security matters, including without limitation clearances to be held and non-disclosure agreements to be executed by auditors, badging or escorting requirements for access to premises, and other applicable requirements. Any over-use of the Fugue Software, Ludwig, or Compositions in excess of the license identified in an audit shall be referred to the prime contractor or the Federal Government End User's contracting officer (as applicable) for action. No audit costs may be sought against the Federal Government End User except as, and then only to the extent, specifically authorized by applicable federal statute.
(vii) Compliance with laws: The parties acknowledge that the United States, as a sovereign, is subject to the laws of the United States. Nothing in this EULA shall be interpreted to imply consent by any Federal Government End User to submit to the adjudicative or enforcement power of any regulatory, administrative, or judicial authority of, or the application of the laws of, another jurisdiction. Any provision inconsistent with applicable federal law that is not listed above is hereby deemed omitted from this EULA to the extent of such inconsistence. (viii) Third party terms: Any third party licensing terms associated with third-party software components or products embedded in or otherwise provided with the the Fugue Software, Ludwig, or Compositions shall be deemed amended in accordance with the provisions in 10.1(b) (i) - (vii), above.
