1. DESCRIPTION OF THE XNOR.AI TOOLS
1.1 The XNOR.AI Tools are Available Through the AI2GO Developer Platform.
The XNOR.AI SDK, the XNOR Models made available as a component of the XNOR.AI SDK, and the XNOR Bundles – i.e., XNOR Models accompanied by an inference engine – are made available through the AI2GO developer platform available at https://ai2go.xnor.ai/home (or a successor site).
1.2 The XNOR.AI SDK Comprises Several Components.
The XNOR.AI SDK comprises AI models (in executable, binary format), certain data (also in binary format), sample applications (in source code format and/or executable, binary format), headers and other support files (in source code format), scripts for building samples (also in source code format), and certain documentation in plain text. These components, collectively, are referred to herein as the XNOR.AI SDK, as more fully defined in Section 11.8 below. AI models, including any data, sample applications, headers and other support files, or documentation accompanying such AI models, which, together, sometimes make up components of the XNOR.AI SDK, are sometimes referred to in this Agreement, separately, as "XNOR Models." However, all references in this Agreement to the XNOR.AI SDK include XNOR Models comprised by the XNOR.AI SDK, as components thereof.
1.3 You May Access XNOR Models Separately, Including XNOR Models Accompanied By an Inference Engine, Referred to as XNOR Bundles.
From time to time, we may make certain XNOR Models available to you separately from the XNOR.AI SDK as a whole, and from time to time, we may make certain XNOR Models available to you accompanied by an inference engine, which we refer to., collectively, as XNOR Bundles. For example, after accessing and using the XNOR.AI SDK for the evaluation purposes described in this Agreement, you may wish to access and use an additional XNOR Bundle (also referred to by us as an XB) made available by us separately. If, now or in the future, you access one or more XNOR Models or XBs separately from your access to the XNOR.AI SDK as a whole, your access to and use of the XNOR Models or XBs are subject to the terms, conditions, limitations, and restrictions set forth in this Agreement, plus any additional terms, conditions, limitations, or restrictions set forth in this Agreement that apply only to XNOR Models and XBs.

9. YOU WILL INDEMNIFY US FROM CERTAIN THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS THAT MIGHT BE ASSERTED AGAINST US DUE TO YOUR ACTS OR OMISSIONS
You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us and our affiliates and each of our respective officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, independent contractors, consultants, shareholders, licensors, vendors, and suppliers from and against any liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses, including court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with any third-party claim (each, a "Claim") that: (a) alleges the infringement or misappropriation of any Intellectual Property Right by: (i) one or more of your Software Applications or the use thereof, including the combination of one or more of your Software Applications with any hardware, software, systems, networks, services, content, or data; (ii) any product, service, or content made available, or required to be made available, through or as a part of one or more of your Software Applications; or (iii) your or your Authorized Users’ combination of the XNOR.AI Tools or any of their components with any hardware, software, systems, networks, services, content, or data; (b) alleges libel, slander, or defamation in connection with the use of one or more of your Software Applications or any product, service, or content made available through or as a part of one or more of your Software Applications; (c) alleges injury, death, or property or other damage arising from or related to the use of one or more of your Software Applications or any product, service, or content made available through or as a part of one or more of your Software Applications; (d) alleges facts that, if true, constitute a breach of your or your Authorized User’s obligations set forth in this Agreement or any other agreement between us and you; or (e) alleges facts that, if true, would constitute a violation of applicable law or regulation by you or one or more of your Authorized Users in connection with the performance of this Agreement or the development, sale, and/or distribution of one or more of your Software Applications. Your obligations pursuant to this Section 9, with respect to each Claim, are contingent upon: (x) us providing you with notice of the Claim; (y) us providing reasonable cooperation, at your expense, in the defense and settlement of the Claim; and (z) you having sole authority to defend or settle the Claim; provided, that the failure to provide notice of the Claim will not relieve you of your obligations pursuant to this Section 9 except to the extent of any material prejudice directly resulting from our failure and you will not settle any Claim in a manner that admits guilt on behalf of us or imposes any restriction or obligation on us without obtaining the advance written consent of one of our authorized officers.
10. ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS THAT APPLY TO OUR AGREEMENT WITH YOU
10.1 We Will Resolve Our Disputes, If Any, by Negotiation and, If Necessary, Arbitration.
In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising from or relating to this Agreement or the breach of this Agreement, the Parties will use their best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this end, the Parties will consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable resolution satisfactory to both Parties. If the Parties do not reach such a resolution within a period of 60 days, then, upon notice by either Party to the other, all such disputes, claims, questions, or disagreements will be finally settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Within 14 days after the commencement of arbitration, each Party will select one person to act as arbitrator and the two arbitrators selected by the parties will select a third arbitrator within 10 days after the day on which the second of them is appointment. If the arbitrators selected by the Parties are unable or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator will be selected by the American Arbitration Association. The place of the arbitration will be Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The language of the arbitration will be English. Either Party, if it wishes to do so, may apply to the arbitrators seeking injunctive relief until the arbitration award is rendered or the controversy is otherwise resolved. Either Party, without waiving any remedy under this Agreement, also may seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that Party, pending the establishment of the arbitral tribunal (or pending the arbitral tribunal’s determination of the merits of the controversy). Except as may be required by law or as otherwise expressly permitted by this Section 10.1, neither a Party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration conducted pursuant to this Section 10.1, including any determination made or award given, without the prior written consent of both Parties.
10.2 The Parties May Seek Equitable Remedies from a Court of Law in Certain Circumstances.
Notwithstanding Section 10.1 above, each Party acknowledges and agrees that, due to the unique nature of Intellectual Property Rights, licenses to Intellectual Property Rights, and trade secrets and other confidential information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach or threatened breach of a Party’s obligations related to such matters, that any such breach or threatened breach may allow the defaulting Party or third parties to unfairly compete with the non-defaulting Party resulting in irreparable harm to the non-defaulting Party, that any such breach or threatened breach would cause irreparable harm to the non-defaulting Party, and, therefore, that upon any such breach or threatened breach, in addition to any other remedies at law or in equity that the non-defaulting Party may have, the non-defaulting Party is entitled, without the requirement of posting a bond or other security, to equitable relief, including injunctive relief and specific performance. Each Party hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the federal and state courts located in King County, Washington, U.S.A., in connection with any action seeking such conservatory or interim measures.
10.3 This Agreement is Governed by the Laws of the State of Washington, U.S.A.
This Agreement and all disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, including any question regarding its formation, existence, validity, enforceability, performance, interpretation, breach, or termination will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive local laws of the State of Washington, U.S.A., without reference to its choice of law rules and not including the provisions of the 1980 U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
10.4 Our Relationship with You and Your Relationship with Us is that of Independent Contractors.
The relationship between us and you is that of independent contractors. Consistent with each Party’s status as an independent contractor, each Party will retain the sole and exclusive right to supervise, control, or direct the manner or means by which it performs its duties and exercises its rights under this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement is to be construed as creating an agency, partnership, or joint venture relationship between the Parties. Neither Party shall have any right or authority to assume or create any obligations or to make any representations or warranties on behalf of the other Party, whether express or implied, or to bind the other Party in any respect whatsoever.
10.5 Notices Will Be Provided in Writing to the Address that Each Party Provides.
All notices and other communications required or permitted under this Agreement will be in writing, addressed to the applicable Party at the street address and/or email address provided by such Party to the other (which, in the case of a business entity, may be provided to the other Party by publicly displaying the address of such Party’s principal corporate headquarters on the Internet or elsewhere), and deemed effectively delivered only: (a) upon personal delivery, (b) upon delivery by a courier service as confirmed by written delivery confirmation, (c) upon delivery by facsimile as confirmed by transmission receipt, (d) upon delivery by email provided that the subject of the email includes "RESPONSE REQUIRED – LEGAL" and receives a non-automated response, or (d) five days after deposit in the mail, postage prepaid.
10.6 You May Not Assign this Agreement without Our Consent.
You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, without our prior written consent. We may freely assign this Agreement. Any assignment in violation of this provision will be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will come to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the Parties.
10.7 These Terms and Conditions Comprise the Entire Agreement between Us and You Concerning the XNOR.AI Tools.
These terms and conditions comprise the entire agreement between us and you with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersede all previous communications, representations, understandings, and agreements, either oral or written, between us and you with respect to the XNOR.AI Tools and any related services. No terms, provisions, or conditions of any purchase order, acknowledgement, or other business form that either Party may use in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement will have any effect on the rights, duties, or obligations of the Parties under, or otherwise modify, this Agreement, regardless of any failure of a receiving Party to object to these terms, provisions, or conditions.
10.8 This Agreement Cannot be Amended or Its Provisions Waived Except Under Limited Circumstances.
No term or provision of this Agreement will be considered waived by either Party, and no breach excused by either Party, unless such waiver or consent is in writing signed on behalf of the Party against whom the waiver is asserted. No consent by either Party to, or waiver of, a breach by either Party, whether express or implied, will constitute a consent to, waiver of, or excuse of any other, different, or subsequent breach by either Party. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 10.10 below, this Agreement may be amended or supplemented only by a writing that refers explicitly to this Agreement and that is signed by both Parties.
10.9 There Are a Few Additional Rules Governing the Interpretation of this Agreement.
You acknowledge and represent that, in accepting this Agreement, you have had the opportunity to seek advice as to your legal rights from legal counsel and that you have read and understood all of the terms and provisions of this Agreement. As such, no ambiguity will be construed against us based upon a claim that we drafted the ambiguous language. Also, this Agreement is in the English language, which language will be controlling, even if interpretations of this Agreement in other languages are made. The headings appearing at the beginning of sections contained in this Agreement have been inserted for convenience only and will not be used to construe or interpret this Agreement. Whenever required by context, a singular term will include the plural, the plural term will include the singular, and the gender of any pronoun will include all genders. References to us and you will include our respective successors and/or permitted assignees. Any references to recitals, articles, sections, paragraphs, schedules, exhibits, riders, addenda, and other attachments are to the recitals, articles, sections, paragraphs, schedules, exhibits, riders, addenda, and other attachments to this Agreement. A reference to days shall mean calendar days and not business days or working days, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement. References to "include" and "including" will not be given a restrictive meaning and will be interpreted "without limitation." If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary for this Agreement to remain enforceable. The rights and recourse to remedies set forth in this Agreement will not, under any circumstances, be deemed to be exclusive. As such, each Party reserves to it all rights and recourse to remedies afforded by applicable law.
10.10 Modification of this Agreement.
We reserve the right to change or modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement, or any policy or guideline governing use of the XNOR.AI Tools, at any time and in our sole discretion; provided, that, in the event of a modification of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, we will notify you of the modifications and allow you to review and accept the Agreement, as modified, prior to continuing to use the XNOR.AI Tools. However, your continued use of the XNOR.AI Tools, following notice of modifications to this Agreement, will constitute your acceptance of this Agreement, as modified.
