a) Disclaimer. 

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, PHILIPS AND PHILIPS' REPRESENTATIVES SHALL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE TO THE CUSTOMER FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR COVER, OR LOSS OF DATA, PROFIT, REVENUE OR USE, IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THESE CONDITIONS OF SALE OR ANY RESULTING AGREEMENT, OR THE FUNCTIONING OR THE CUSTOMER'S USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING (EMBEDDED) SOFTWARE, OR FOR ANY LIABILITY OF THE CUSTOMER TO ANY THIRD PARTY WITH RESPECT THERETO.  NEITHER PHILIPS NOR PHILIPS' SUPPLIERS SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF OR INABILITY TO USE MEDICAL OR OTHER DATA STORED IN GOODS, INCLUDING (EMBEDDED) SOFTWARE OR ON OTHER MAGNETIC MEDIA, AND NEITHER PHILIPS NOR PHILIPS' REPRESENTATIVES SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR RELOADING DATA IN SUCH EVENT.

 

b) Infringement Claims.

If force majeure prevents Philips from filling any order from the Customer or otherwise performing any obligation arising out of the sale, Philips shall not be liable for any compensation, reimbursement or damages whether for direct, indirect or consequential loss or otherwise.

 

If a party terminates the Contract as a result of a Force Majeure Event under this clause, the rights and obligations of the parties will cease; and the accrued rights or remedies of each party will not be affected.

In case (a) a non-appealable judgment of a competent court having jurisdiction declares the claim to be valid or (b) the Licensed Software is believed by Licensor to infringe such a claim, Licensor may, at its option, either (a) secure Licensee's right to continue using the Licensed Software, (b) replace or modify the Licensed Software to make it free of such infringement so long as such replacement or modification does not materially affect the total functionality of the Licensed Software, or (c) if neither of the foregoing alternatives is available on commercially reasonable terms to Licensor, accept return of such Licensed Software and, after deduction of a reasonable charge for the time Licensee did make use of the Licensed Software, refund to Licensee the fee specified in section 4, paid by Licensee for the Licensed Software so returned. If Licensor provides any of the options set forth above, Licensor's indemnity obligation hereunder shall be entirely fulfilled as to that individual claim. 

 

Licensor shall have no obligation for any claim of infringement and Licensee shall reimburse all reasonable costs (including, but not limited to, attorneys fees) in case a claim arises from (i) any settlement or compromise made by Licensee without Licensor's prior written consent, (ii) use by Licensee of the Licensed Software, when use of a later version which Licensor has commercially made available would have avoided such infringement, (iii) use or combination of the Licensed Software with software or equipment not supplied by Licensor, where without combination the Licensed Software would not have been infringing, (iv) use of the Licensed Software in a manner or for a purpose for which it was not designed as set forth in the applicable Product documentation, (v) Licensor's compliance with Licensee's particular design, specifications and/or instructions, (vi) Licensor's use of technical information or technology provided by the Licensee, (vii) modifications neither made by Licensor nor approved by Licensor, or (viii) Licensee not following Licensor's normal recommended hardware and software maintenance schedules and instructions and/or not implementing mandatory (safety) actions (FCO implementation). Furthermore, Licensor will not be liable for any claim where the damages sought are based directly or indirectly upon the quantity or value of products or services generated by means of the Products purchased under the quotation, or based upon the amount of use of the Products regardless of whether such claim alleges the Products or its use infringes or contributes to the infringement of such claim.

 

The indemnities and obligations of Licensor in this Section 8 shall apply to third party software only to the extent Licensor, pursuant to its license agreement or purchase agreement with such third party, is entitled to indemnification for such infringements.

 

THE FOREGOING STATES THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF PHILIPS WITH RESPECT TO INFRINGEMENT OF ANY IPR BY THE LICENSED SOFTWARE OR ANY PARTS THEREOF.

 

9.  Warranty

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH HEREIN OR IN PHILIPS’ WARRANTY DOCUMENT WITH RESPECT TO A PRODUCT (INCLUDING THE LICENSED SOFTWARE PROVIDED WITH ANY DESIGNATED PRODUCT OR OTHER PRODUCT) ARE THE ONLY WARRANTIES MADE BY PHILIPS IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH PRODUCT AND THE LICENSED SOFTWARE AND THE TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED BY THE QUOTATION OR CONDITIONS OF SALE ATTACHED TO THIS LICENSE. 

 

Philips provides specific warranties with respect to the offered Licensed Software, as set out in Philips’ quotation, or as annexed hereto.  In the absence of any specific warranty for the Licensed Software, Philips warrants that during a period of ninety (90) days after the Licensed Software has been made available to the Licensor (‘Warranty Period’) that the Licensed Software will conform substantially to the applicable functional specifications which are in effect on the date of the License and which may be furnished to Licensee. 

 

In order to claim under the warranty granted by this clause, Licensee must, during the Warranty Period, notify Licensor of the nonconformity in writing at 65 Epping Road, North Ryde NSW 2113 within ten (10) days of discovery giving full details of such nonconformity. 

 

If such nonconformity is a critical error in the then current version of the Licensed Software, and Licensor is able to reproduce the nonconformity, then Licensor shall at its option, and at its expense, endeavor to correct the nonconformity, either by replacement, work around, or by modification of the Licensed Software. If, after the expenditure of reasonable efforts, Licensor is unable to correct the non-compliance, Licensor may refund a reasonable portion or the entire purchase price for the Licensed Software. 

 

To the fullest extent permitted by law:

 

a. Philips does not represent or warrant that the functions contained in the licensed software will meet licensee's requirements or that the operation of licensed software will be uninterrupted or error-free; 

b. except as expressly provided in these General Customer Software License Conditions, neither Philips nor any other person or entity retaining rights in the Licensed Software or Intellectual Property used by Philips in the Licensed Software will have any obligation or be liable for any bug, error, omission, defect, deficiency or non-conformity in the Licensed Software;  

c. Philips makes no representation or warranty with respect to the way in which software functions are executed;  

d. Philips does not warrant that the media used on the hardware will be compatible with or perform on any other hardware component;

e. Philips further grants no warranty as to defects that appear in the Licensed Software due to one or more of the reasons specified in section 6 hereinabove; and

f. in no event shall Philips be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages, which includes, without limitation, lost turnover, lost profits, lost medical data or other data, or inability to use the licensed software arising out of the use or operation of the Licensed Software breach of contract warranty, negligence, indemnity, strict liability or other tort or otherwise.

 

Nothing in this warranty shall be construed as affecting any rights the Licensee may have under all the relevant laws, or Commonwealth or State legislation, which give the Licensee rights which can not be modified or excluded by agreement. 

 

This warranty is provided in addition to other rights and remedies of a consumer under a law in relation to the goods to which the warranty relates.

 

The liability of Philips for any breach of any condition or warranty implied by a relevant law or pursuant to an applicable statutory guarantee will be limited to, for Licensed Software not ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household purposes, as follows:

 

(a) the replacement of the Licensed Software or the supply of equivalent Licensed Software;

(b) the repair of the Licensed Software;

(c) the payment of the cost of replacing the Licensed Software or of acquiring an equivalent Licensed Software; or

(d) the payment of the cost of having the Licensed Software repaired.

 

To the fullest extent permitted by law, all other remedies are excluded.

 

Clause 1 applies to the extent to which statutory guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law apply to the supply by Philips of the Licensed Software to the Customer.

 

The warranty and service obligations of Licensor herein shall apply to third party software only to the extent Licensor, pursuant to its license agreement or purchase agreement with such third party, is entitled to corresponding warranty and service remedies.

 

10.  Waiver

Notwithstanding paragraphs 7 and 8 hereinabove, the Licensee expressly waives all claims against Licensor and agrees to hold Licensor harmless from any liability arising from the use of the Licensed Software, unless Licensee proves that such liability is solely attributable to the gross negligence or willful intent of Licensor.

 

11.  Miscellaneous

(a)  This License constitutes the entire agreement between Licensor and Licensee with respect to the subject matter and Licensor shall not be liable to Licensee for loss arising from or in connection with any representations, agreements, statements or undertakings made prior to the date of the License. A copy of this License must be available for Licensor's inspection during normal working hours at the site specified therein.

 

(b)  No modification of this License shall be valid unless in writing and signed by duly authorized representatives of both of the parties.

 

(c)  Licensee is not entitled to assign the License or any right hereunder to any other person or entity.  Licensor may, however, delegate the exercise of rights and the performance of one or more of its obligations under this License to its affiliated companies and authorized agents, provided that Licensor shall remain responsible for ensuring that such obligations are performed in accordance with the provisions of this License.

 

(d)  Licensor will offer a software license to any bona fide Customer of the Designated Hardware/System on which the Licensed Software is running (‘Secondary Customer’) pursuant to the then current Licensor's charges, terms and conditions. Due to Licensor's need to protect its proprietary information, Licensor reserves the right not to license the Licensed Software to any Secondary Customer, if such Secondary Customer is deemed by Licensor to be a competitor of Licensor. Upon any sale of the Designated Hardware/System to a Secondary Customer and approval of the Secondary Customer, Licensor will de-install such Designated Hardware at Licensor’s then prevailing rates and re-install such Designated Hardware for the Secondary Customer, but only after such Secondary Customer has agreed to the required Licensor software licensing conditions

 

(e)  In connection with Embedded Software in which one or more suppliers retains rights, the provisions contained herein shall also be for the benefit of these supplier(s). Licensee agrees to indemnify Licensor for any claim by supplier(s) which arises out of Licensee's breach of this License.
