(a) Your Online Privacy Obligations
You agree that you will maintain a prominent link to your online privacy notice on your website(s) and any online webpages, or other applicable Platforms, where you collect data that may be shared under this Agreement. Such privacy notices will comply with all applicable then-current laws, regulations and industry best practices, such as the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Data and Multi-Site Data. Such privacy notice will include, at a minimum, (i) a right for the User to opt in to, and expressly consent to the collection of data, (ii) a full, accurate and clear disclosure regarding the placement, use and reading of cookies and related technologies, and (iii) the collection, sharing and use of data in relation to any activity by Users, including that third parties may receive data directly from you for their own use and that such data is subject to their own privacy policies.

“Confidential Information” shall mean all confidential or proprietary technical or business information of a party furnished by such party (the “Discloser”) in writing or orally to the other party (the “Recipient”), including without limitation (i) software code, proposals, ideas, inventions, algorithms, trade secrets, or research related to current products, new products, new features or services; and (ii) financial statements and other financial information. The Recipient agrees to hold the Discloser’s Confidential Information in strict confidence using commercially reasonable precautions, which precautions will be at least equivalent to those taken by Recipient to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event less than reasonable. Except as required by law, court order, or as necessary to perform under this Agreement, Recipient will not disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information or use such Confidential Information for its own benefit or for the benefit of any third party. Recipient shall have no obligation of confidentiality with respect to any of Discloser’s information which Recipient can show: (i) was in the public domain at or subsequent to the time it was communicated to Recipient by Discloser through no fault of Recipient; (ii) was rightfully in Recipient’s possession free of any obligation of confidence at or subsequent to the time it was communicated to Recipient by Discloser; (iii) was independently developed by Recipient without reference to any of Discloser’s Confidential Information; or (iv) was communicated by the Discloser to an unaffiliated third party free of any obligation of confidence. Recipient shall be permitted to disclose Confidential Information to its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, and agents (the “Representatives”), provided Recipient is responsible for any breach of this Section by its Representatives. Any breach of this section will cause Discloser and/or its licensors irreparable injury for which there are inadequate remedies at law, and therefore, Discloser will be entitled to equitable relief, including, without limitation, injunctive relief, in addition to any and all other remedies available at law and in equity under contract, including under this Agreement, or otherwise.
(a) Indemnification by You.To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Gravy, its affiliates and each of their directors, officers, employees, independent contractors, and agents (each a “Gravy Indemnified Party”) from any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, expenses, and costs (including without limitation attorneys’ fees and court costs) (collectively, “Losses”) brought by a third party against Gravy arising as a result of (i) your non-compliance with any terms of this Agreement; (ii) your use of the SDK (or any part thereof); including any claim that the SDK in your Platform infringes the copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property right of a third party, (iii) any negligent or unlawful act by you in the performance of this Agreement, or (iv) violation of applicable laws.
(b) Indemnification by Gravy. Gravy shall indemnify you for all Losses arising from a claim brought by a third party that the SDK provided to you hereunder infringes, or otherwise misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Gravy shall have no responsibility for such infringement claim to the extent such claim arises from your combination, or modification of the SDK with your Platform or any other of your services, or use of the SDK other than as expressly permitted hereunder. If in Gravy’s reasonable discretion the SDK is likely to become the subject of an infringement or misappropriation claim or proceeding, Gravy shall, (i) secure the right to continue using the SDK, or (ii) replace or modify the SDK so that it is no longer infringing. If Gravy cannot reasonably accomplish either of these actions, then Gravy shall have a right to terminate this Agreement. This section states your sole and exclusive remedy for Gravy’s infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property of a third party.
(c) Procedure. The indemnified party shall give prompt notice to the indemnifying party of the claim, provided, however, that the indemnified party’s failure to provide notification shall not affect the indemnifying party’s indemnification obligations except to the extent that the failure to notify delays or prejudices the indemnifying party’s ability to defend the applicable claim. The indemnifying party shall conduct the defense and shall have control of the litigation, and the indemnified party shall cooperate in defending against the claim. The indemnified party shall have the right, at any time and at its own expense, to participate in the defense of the claim with counsel of its own choosing. The indemnifying party shall not make any settlement of the claim that results in any liability or imposes any obligation on the indemnified party without the prior written consent of the indemnified party.
IN NO EVENT WILL GRAVY OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, LOSS OF DATA, COSTS, FEES OR EXPENSES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE ARISING OUT OF ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE ITEMS IN THE SDK, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF GRAVY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL GRAVY’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00).
Gravy reserves the right, from time to time, with or without notice to you, to make revisions to this Agreement in our sole and absolute discretion. The most current version of this Agreement will supersede all previous versions and shall be made available on the website where the SDK is made available, or by such other means as Gravy may determine in its discretion. Any modified versions of this Agreement hereto shall take effect from the time that it is made available. You shall be responsible for regularly checking for notice of any such modifications. You agree that your continued use of the SDK and continued provision of Licensed Data constitutes your agreement to the modified Agreement. We may also ask you to acknowledge your acceptance of the modified terms through an electronic click-through or other means of acceptance. This Agreement otherwise may not be amended except through mutual agreement by you and a Gravy representative who intends to amend this Agreement and is duly authorized to agree to such an amendment.
(a) Assignment.This Agreement may not be assigned, nor may any of your obligations under this Agreement be delegated, in whole or in part, by you by operation of law, merger, or any other means without Gravy’s express prior written consent and any attempted assignment without such consent will be null and void.
(b) Export Control. You may not use or otherwise export or re-export the SDK (or any part thereof) except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which the SDK (or any part thereof) was obtained. In particular, but without limitation, the SDK may not be exported or re-exported (i) into any U.S. embargoed countries or (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person's List or Entity List. By using the SDK (or any part thereof), you represent and warrant that you are not located in any such country or on any such list.
(c) Governing Law. This Agreement and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, exclusive of conflict or choice-of-law rules, and the parties hereby consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located in Loudon County, in the Commonwealth of Virginia. IN THE EVENT OF ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THE PARTIES, WHETHER IT RESULTS IN PROCEEDINGS IN ANY COURT IN ANY JURISDICTION, THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY, AND HAVING HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONSULT WITH COUNSEL, WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY OR CLASS ACTION, AND AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL MATTERS SHALL BE DECIDED BY A JUDGE WITHOUT A JURY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. To the extent applicable, in the event of any lawsuit between the parties arising out of or related to this Agreement, the parties agree to prepare and to timely file in the applicable court a mutual consent to waive any statutory or other requirements for a trial by jury.
(d) Neither party shall be deemed in default of this Agreement to the extent that performance of its obligations is delayed or prevented by reason of any act of God, fire, natural disaster, accident, act of government, sabotage of material or supplier or any other cause beyond the control of such party.
(e) It is agreed that the rights and remedies herein provided to Gravy in case of breach, threatened breach, or default by you of this Agreement are cumulative and without prejudice to any other rights and remedies that Gravy may have by reason of such default or breach by you at law, in equity, under contract, including, without limitation, this Agreement, or otherwise, all of which are hereby expressly reserved.
(f) Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions hereof will be unaffected and remain in full force and effect.
(h) Relationship of the Parties. This Agreement will not be construed as creating an agency, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary duty, or any other form of legal association between you and Gravy, and you will not represent to the contrary, whether expressly, by implication, appearance, or otherwise.
(i) Waiver and Construction. Failure by Gravy to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision.
