Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as conferring upon Deep Blocks (by implication, operation of law or otherwise) any license or right in or to the Licensee Materials not expressly granted by Licensee in this Agreement. Deep Blocks acknowledges and agrees that it shall be responsible for, at its own cost and expense, any government approvals (foreign and domestic) relating to the Services and any third party licenses that need to be obtained.
5.1. Restrictions on Use and Disclosure. A Party receiving Proprietary Information (“Recipient”) (a) shall hold all Proprietary Information of the disclosing Party (“Discloser”) in strict confidence and shall use such information only to the extent reasonably required to exercise Recipient’s rights and/or fulfill Recipient’s obligations hereunder, and (b) shall not disclose or otherwise make available, directly or indirectly, any of Discloser’s Proprietary Information to any third party without the prior written permission of Discloser. Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Proprietary Information in confidence solely to Recipient’s employees and agents who have a need to know such Proprietary Information, and who are each obligated by a written agreement to comply with confidentiality and non-disclosure obligations substantially similar to those set forth in this Section 5, and/or to Recipient’s lawyers, accountants, banks and financing sources, who each owe a duty of confidentiality to Recipient. Recipient shall take all reasonable measures, but in any event no less than the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information of similar nature and importance (but no less than reasonable care), to protect the confidentiality of and prevent the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of Discloser’s Proprietary Information.
5.2. Scope. The obligations in Section 5.1 shall not apply to Proprietary Information to the extent that such Proprietary Information (a) is or becomes generally known or available through no act or omission of Recipient; (b) is lawfully known by Recipient prior to the time of disclosure to Recipient; (c) is independently developed by Recipient without the use of Discloser’s Proprietary Information; or (d) is lawfully obtained from a third party who has the right to make such disclosure without restriction. In addition, Recipient may disclose Proprietary Information to the extent (i) approved for disclosure by Discloser in writing or (ii) legally compelled to be disclosed, provided that Recipient shall use reasonable efforts to give advance notice of such compelled disclosure to Discloser, and shall cooperate with Discloser in connection with any efforts to prevent or limit the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Proprietary Information.
5.3. Return of Proprietary Information. Upon termination of this Agreement, or at any time Discloser so requests, Recipient shall deliver immediately to Discloser or destroy all property belonging to Discloser and all information and material containing or constituting Proprietary Information of Discloser, including, without limitation, any copies in Recipient’s possession or control, whether prepared by Recipient or by others. Upon Discloser’s request, Recipient shall promptly provide an affidavit signed by an officer of Recipient certifying that such delivery or destruction has been completed.
5.4. Remedies. Recipient acknowledges and agrees (a) that due to the unique nature of Discloser’s Proprietary Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of Recipient’s obligations hereunder, (b) that any such breach may allow Recipient or third parties to unfairly compete with Discloser resulting in irreparable harm and significant injury to Discloser, which will be difficult to estimate and ascertain; and therefore, (c) that upon any such breach or any threatened breach thereof, Discloser shall be entitled to an immediate injunction, temporary restraining order, attachment, and/or other appropriate equitable relief, in addition to whatever remedies it might have at law, without the necessity of proving actual damages or posting any bond or security. Recipient shall notify Discloser in writing immediately upon the occurrence of any such unauthorized release or other breach of the obligations of this Section 5.
6.1. Limited Warranty. Each Party represents, warrants, and covenants to the other Party that: (a) such Party has full power to enter into this Agreement and to perform its obligations hereunder; (b) such Party has not made and will not make any commitments or agreements inconsistent with the other Party’s rights hereunder; and (c) the execution, delivery, and performance of this Agreement, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, will not materially breach, violate, or conflict with any other agreement of such Party.

(b) that Licensee acknowledges and understands that the Service contains automatically populated user input suggestions and that these suggestions shall not be relied upon by Licensee as accurate for any particular use.
(c) that Licensee acknowledges and understands that the Service is not a substitute for legitimate legal advice and that the Service does not interpret zoning laws.
6.3. No Competitors. ACCESS OR USE OF THE SERVICES BY ANY COMPETITIVE REAL ESTATE INFORMATION, ANALYTICS OR OTHER SIMILAR BUSINESS IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Officers, directors, employees, independent contractors or other agents of any competitive real estate information, analytics or other similar business are not permitted to access or use the Services without the prior written consent of Deep Blocks.

10.3. Governing Law, Dispute Resolution. This Agreement is to be construed in accordance with and governed by the internal laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any choice of law rule that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the internal laws of the State of Delaware to the rights and duties of the Parties. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement must be submitted to and settled as set forth in this Section. If any Party to this Agreement alleges that any other Party to this Agreement has breached any of the terms of this Agreement, then the Party alleging breach will inform the other Party of such breach in writing. Upon receipt of such notice, the allegedly non-performing Party will have 30 days to cure the alleged breach. If the parties do not agree that effective cure has been accomplished by the end of the 30-day period, then upon written request of any Party, a senior manager from each Party will meet in person in Miami, Florida and confer in good faith to resolve the dispute within 15 days of the expiration of the prior 30-day period. If after the above procedure the dispute remains unresolved, either Party may submit the dispute to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) for binding arbitration in accordance with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect, as amended by this Agreement. The law applicable to the arbitration, including the administration and enforcement thereof, is the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended from time to time. The arbitration shall be conducted in Miami, Florida. The cost of the arbitration, including the fees and expenses of the arbitrator(s), will be shared equally by the Parties, with each Party paying its own attorneys’ fees. The arbitrator(s) will be chosen in accordance with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect and will have the authority to apportion liability between the Parties, including the authority to award either Party the right to recover all or a portion of its costs and expenses of such arbitration from the other Party. The arbitration award will be presented to the Parties in writing, and upon the request of either Party, will include findings of fact and conclusions of law. The award may be confirmed and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Any post-award proceedings will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Nothing in this Section shall preclude either Party from seeking interim equitable relief in the form of a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction. A request by a Party of a court for interim equitable relief shall not be deemed a waiver of the obligation to arbitrate hereunder.
10.4. Relationship of Parties. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed or construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, agency, employment or fiduciary relationship between the Parties. Neither Party nor its agents have any authority of any kind to bind the other Party in any respect whatsoever, and the relationship of the Parties is, and at all times shall continue to be, that of independent contractors.
10.5. Assignment and Change in Control. Neither Party may assign, sell, transfer, delegate or otherwise dispose of, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, or by operation of law, any rights or obligations under this Agreement without the other Party’s prior written consent; provided that Deep Blocks shall have the right to assign this Agreement, including its rights and duties hereunder, without such consent, in connection with a merger, corporate reorganization or sale of a substantial portion of the business of Deep Blocks to which this Agreement relates. This Agreement shall automatically terminate upon an acquisition of Licensee by way of a merger, consolidation, stock purchase or tender offer, reorganization or any other transaction or series of related transactions in which its stockholders of record immediately prior to such transaction or series of related transactions do not, immediately after such transaction or series of related transactions, hold a majority of the voting power in the surviving or resulting entity following such transaction or series of related transactions and the right to elect a majority of the board of directors or similar managing body of the surviving or resulting entity following such transaction or series of related transactions, or Licensee sells all or substantially all of its assets (a “Change in Control”). Except as provided herein, any purported assignment, transfer, or delegation by a Party shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
10.6. Waiver. The waiver by either Party of a breach of or a default under any provision of this Agreement, shall not be effective unless in writing and shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of or default under the same or any other provision of this Agreement, nor shall any delay or omission on the part of either Party to exercise or avail itself of any right or remedy that it has or may have hereunder operate as a waiver of any right or remedy. The waiver of the time for performance of any act or condition hereunder does not constitute a waiver of the act or condition itself.
10.7. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or is so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity will not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and, in such event, such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the Parties within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decision.
10.8. Cumulative Remedies. The rights and remedies of either Party as set forth in this Agreement are not exclusive and are in addition to any other rights and remedies now or hereafter provided by law or at equity.
10.9. Force Majeure. Neither Party shall be responsible for its failure to perform to the extent due to unforeseen circumstances or causes beyond its control, such as acts of God, wars, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fires, floods, earthquakes, accidents, or strikes, provided that such Party gives the other Party prompt written notice of the failure to perform and the reason therefor and uses its reasonable efforts to limit the resulting delay in its performance.
10.10. Publicity. Each Party may issue one or more press releases announcing the relationship established under this Agreement. Each Party may, without the other Party’s consent, list the other Party as part of any customer or business partner lists appearing on its website, and customer or business partner lists in presentations, marketing materials, business plans, investor and potential investor communications and in all other instances and in all other forms of communications where customer or business partner references are made.
10.11. Captions and Section Headings. The captions and Section and paragraph headings used in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.
10.12. Construction. This Agreement has been negotiated by the Parties and shall be interpreted fairly in accordance with its terms and without any construction in favor of or against either Party.
10.13. Counterparts; Electronic Execution. This Agreement may be executed (including, without limitation, by facsimile signature) in one or more counterparts, with the same effect as if the Parties had signed the same document. Each counterpart so executed shall be deemed to be an original, and all such counterparts shall be construed together and shall constitute one Agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart signature page to this Agreement may be made by facsimile or by electronic delivery (including Adobe Portable Document Format or any other electronic signature complying with the U.S. federal ESIGN Act of 2000, e.g., www.docusign.com) or other transmission method and any counterpart so delivered shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart to this Agreement and be deemed to have been duly and validly delivered and be valid and effective for all purposes. As a condition to the access and use of the Services, the undersigned individual clicking “I AGREE” represents and warrants that he or she has the authority to act on behalf of and bind Licensee under this Agreement.
10.14. Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement, including without limitation all exhibits attached hereto which are incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous representations, discussions, proposals, negotiations, conditions, agreements and communications, whether oral or written, between the Parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and all past courses of dealing or industry custom.
