Failure to provide a list of Developers when requested shall be a material breach of this Agreement and Company shall have the right to immediate terminate this Agreement and all rights Customer may have hereunder. Customer is permitted to replace a Developer, at no additional charge, once every one hundred and eighty (180) days. Upon each replacement, the previous Developer shall cease all use of the Company Technology, shall destroy and/or purge the Company Technology and all copies in any and all forms and from all media and from all devices of the Developer, and upon request from Company, Customer shall certify in writing to Company that they have been destroyed and/or purged and/or provide all relevant documentation concerning the identity of each Developer.

This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but both of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
(b) No delay or failure by either party to exercise or enforce at any time any right or provision hereof will be considered a waiver thereof.

Upon such election by Company, arbitration shall be conducted in Columbia, Maryland by the rules of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") or the International Centre for Dispute Resolution ('ICDR'), at Company's sole discretion, by a single arbitrator knowledgeable in the software industry, and in accordance with the rules thereof then pertaining. The fees of the arbitration shall be borne by the parties equally. This section shall not, in the event arbitration is chosen, prevent either party from instituting litigation, in order to obtain standing, and seeking injunctive relief from any United States state or federal court under any law or ordinance.
(e) If any provision of this Agreement or the application thereof to any party or circumstance is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, that provision to the extent permitted by law (not otherwise) shall be severed from this Agreement and shall not affect the remainder hereof, and the parties agree to substitute for such provision a valid provision which most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of such severed provision.

Company Technology may not be exported or re-exported in violation of the US Export Administration Act, its implementing laws and regulations, the laws and regulations of other US agencies, or the export and import laws of the jurisdiction in which the Company Technology was obtained. Export of the Company Technology may be subject to the necessity of obtaining approvals required by the US export laws and regulations; Customer is solely responsible for obtaining such approvals at its own expense. Distribution of the Company Technology in any foreign country where the proprietary rights of Company in the Company Technology would not be recognized or would not be protected under the laws of such country is prohibited.
(i) The Company Technology licensed hereunder is subject to restricted rights. Any use, duplication or disclosure by the Government of the United States of America or any person or entity acting on its behalf is subject to the restrictions set forth in subdivision (c)(1)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software Clause at DFARS (48 CFR 252.227-7013) for DoD contracts; in paragraphs (c)(1) and (2) of the Commercial Computer Software-Restricted Rights clause in the FAR (48 CFR 52.227-19) for civilian agencies; or, in the case of NASA, in Clause 18-52.227-86(d) of the NASA Supplement to the FAR, or in other comparable agency clauses.
(j) Should Customer decide to transmit to Company, by any means or any media, any materials or other information (including, without limitation, ideas, concepts or techniques for new or improved services and products), whether as information, feedback, data, questions, comments, suggestions or the like, you agree that such submissions are unrestricted and shall be deemed non-confidential. Should a court of law determine that you have any ownership rights in such information Customer shall automatically grant Company and its assigns a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, transmit, distribute, create derivative works of, display and perform the same.
