NetSuite KK acknowledges that NetSuite desires not to receive in connection with this Agreement any information or technology related to its products, services, or business unless the information and technology can be used in any products and services, in NetSuite's discretion. Accordingly, prior to disclosing any information, know-how, Confidential Information, trade secrets, or other technology to NetSuite in which NetSuite KK, its Affiliate, or licensor, claims a proprietary interest that is not to be assigned to NetSuite under this Agreement, NetSuite KK shall provide a proposal to NetSuite in writing regarding the use and other exploitation of such subject matter by NetSuite. Following receipt of such proposal, NetSuite and such party shall confer concerning the proposal and agree in writing upon the terms, if any, under which such information, know-how, Confidential Information, trade secrets, or other technology may be used. Except as agreed in writing prior to disclosure of the information, know-how, Confidential Information, trade secrets, or other technology to NetSuite, NetSuite has the non-exclusive, perpetual, non-terminable, paid-up, royalty free, worldwide right and license, with the right to grant and authorize sublicenses, to incorporate all such information, know-how, Confidential Information, trade secrets, and other technology into products and services and to make, have made, use, sell, offer to sell, import, reproduce, distribute, transmit, publicly display and perform, and otherwise exploit such products, services and derivatives thereof.
7.3 Proprietary Markings. Neither Party shall remove any trademark, trade name, copyright notice, patent marking, confidentiality, or other proprietary rights notice or marking from any materials provided to it by the other Party in connection with this Agreement.
7.4 Right of First Refusal. In the event that NetSuite KK desires to engage in any transaction with a party headquartered outside the Territory (the "Transaction"), NetSuite KK shall notify NetSuite thereof in writing, describing in reasonable detail in such notice the potential Transaction. NetSuite KK hereby grants to NetSuite a right of first refusal to enter into an agreement with NetSuite KK for the Transactions. Accordingly, if NetSuite notifies NetSuite KK within sixty (60) days after receiving NetSuite KK's notice that NetSuite would like to negotiate an agreement between NetSuite and NetSuite KK to set forth terms and conditions to govern such Transaction between the Parties, the Parties shall negotiate diligently and in good faith to enter into a mutually acceptable agreement. If the Parties have failed to reach agreement for such Transaction,
then NetSuite KK agrees that it will not enter into any agreement with another Party that is more favorable to such other Party than the terms and conditions previously offered by NetSuite KK to NetSuite unless NetSuite KK first offers such terms and conditions to NetSuite.

All right, title and interest in and to the Product and Localized Product are reserved to NetSuite, and no license is granted to NetSuite KK with respect to the Localized Product or Product under this Agreement.

8.3 Competing Products. If NetSuite receives notice, or otherwise becomes aware, that NetSuite KK or an Authorized Reseller is marketing, promoting, or distributing a Competing Product, NetSuite has the right, in its sole discretion and without any liability, to terminate this Agreement by providing thirty (30) days advance notice of termination to NetSuite KK, provided that NetSuite agrees that it will not terminate the Agreement under this Section 8.3 as a result of an Authorized Reseller marketing, promoting, or distributing a Competing Product if all Sales of Localized Product by the applicable Authorized Reseller have been terminated within such thirty (30) day period.
8.4 Insolvency. In addition, each Party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement immediately by written notice upon the commencement of a petition, proceeding or case seeking the other Party's bankruptcy, or any insolvency, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution or winding-up, or readjustment of its debts, or seeking the appointment of a receiver, trustee or the like of itself or its assets, or otherwise seeking relief from its creditors and, in the case of an involuntary petition, proceeding or case, such petition, proceeding or case continues undismissed for, or an order approving or ordering any of the foregoing is entered and is not stayed within, sixty (60) calendar days.

8.7 Continuing Liability. Termination of this Agreement for any reason shall not release either Party from any liability which has already accrued as of the effective date of such termination, and shall not constitute a waiver or release of, or otherwise be deemed to prejudice or adversely affect, any remedies or claims, whether for damages or otherwise, which a Party may have hereunder, at law, equity or otherwise or which may arise out of or in connection with such termination.
8.8 No Liability for Termination. Except as expressly required by law, in the event of termination of this Agreement by either Party in accordance with any of the provisions of this Agreement, neither Party shall be liable to the other, because of such termination, for compensation, reimbursement or damages on account of the loss of prospective profits or anticipated Sales or on account of expenditures, inventory, investments, leases or commitments in connection with the business or goodwill of NetSuite or NetSuite KK.
8.9 Purchase Orders; No Waiver. Except to the extent NetSuite elects not to provide such Product, NetSuite KK shall be obligated to accept, and pay for, Localized Product for which Localized Product orders were issued prior to the effective date of termination or expiration of this Agreement. The acceptance of any order from or the provision of any Localized Product after the termination or expiration of this Agreement shall not be construed as a renewal or extension of this Agreement nor as a waiver of termination of this Agreement. All provisioning of Customer accounts after termination or expiration of this Agreement shall require pre-payment to NetSuite in advance.
9.1 Mutual. Each Party represents and warrants to the other that: (i) it has the right and power to enter into this Agreement and to fulfill its obligations hereunder; (ii) entering into, and performance of its obligations under, this Agreement does not and will not violate, and is not inconsistent with, any agreements between such Party and any third parties or any applicable laws or regulations; and (iii) it shall comply with the requirements of any and all applicable federal, state, local, and other laws, regulations, rules and orders of any governmental body having jurisdiction over such Party or the activities of such Party contemplated by this Agreement.

NetSuite of any of its representations or warranties in this Agreement; (b) the negligence, or illegal or willful misconduct, of NetSuite in connection with this Agreement or the Localized Product; or (c) NetSuite's infringement of the copyrights or trade secrets of a third party in creating or providing the Localized Product under this Agreement.
11.2 Indemnification of NetSuite. Except to the extent that NetSuite is required to indemnify NetSuite KK under Section 11.1, NetSuite KK shall indemnify and hold harmless each of NetSuite and its Affiliates, and the directors, officers, employees, customers, licensors, and contractors of NetSuite and such Affiliates, and the successors and assigns of any of the foregoing (the "NetSuite Indemnitees"), from and against any and all liabilities, damages, settlements, claims, actions, suits, proceedings, penalties, fines, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and other expenses of litigation) incurred by any NetSuite Indemnitee based upon a claim of a non-Affiliate third party to the extent resulting from: (a) a breach by NetSuite KK of any of its representations or warranties in this Agreement; (b) the negligence, or illegal or willful misconduct, of NetSuite KK, its Authorized Resellers, or any Customers in connection with this Agreement or any Localized Product; (c) any failure to support Customers or Authorized Resellers (other than as a result of a failure of NetSuite to perform its support obligations under this Agreement); (d) any representations, warranties, or covenants made with respect to the Localized Product, beyond the Product Use Terms or beyond the representations and warranties made by NetSuite directly to its other customers; (e) any information, data, or other subject matter transmitted or received by Customers using the Localized Product or otherwise delivered or transmitted to or by NetSuite as a result of the use or operation of the Localized Product; or (f) otherwise arising out of the marketing, promotion, commercialization or use of the Localized Product pursuant to this Agreement.
11.3 Procedure. A Party that intends to claim indemnification under this Article 11 (the "Indemnitee") shall promptly notify the other Party (the "Indemnitor") in writing of any claim, in respect of which the Indemnitee intends to claim such indemnification, and the Indemnitor shall have sole control of the defense and settlement thereof. The indemnity arrangement in this Article 11 shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any action with respect to a claim, if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Indemnitor, which consent shall not be withheld or delayed unreasonably. The failure to deliver written notice to the Indemnitor within a reasonable time after the commencement of any action with respect to a Claim, if prejudicial to its ability to defend such action, shall relieve such Indemnitor of any liability to the Indemnitee under this Article 11 but the omission so to deliver written notice to the Indemnitor shall not relieve the Indemnitor of any liability that it may have to any Indemnitee other than under this Article 11. The Indemnitee under this Article 11 shall cooperate fully with the Indemnitor and its legal representatives in the investigation and defense of any action with respect to a claim covered by this indemnification, at the Indemnitor's expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing, provided that the Indemnitor has performed its obligations in accordance with this Article 11, the Indemnitor shall not be responsible for any costs or expenses incurred without the prior written consent of the Indemnitor.
NO INTERRUPTION, DISRUPTION, OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THE LOCALIZED PRODUCT SHALL BE CONSIDERED TO BE A BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT BY NETSUITE, AND NETSUITE SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY SUCH EVENT, IT BEING ACKNOWLEDGED AND
AGREED THAT ANY CREDITS THAT MAY BECOME DUE FROM NETSUITE PURSUANT TO SECTION 6.6 OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE NETSUITE KK's AND THE CUSTOMERS AND AUTHORIZED RESELLERs' SOLE REMEDY, AND NETSUITE's SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE LIABILITY, ARISING OUT OF ANY INTERRUPTION, DISRUPTION, OR UNAVAILABILITY AND FOR ANY BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT BY NETSUITE.
NETSUITE INTENDS TO TAKE SUCH MEASURES AS IT CONSIDERS REASONABLY APPROPRIATE FOR PURPOSES OF MAINTAINING THE WEB SITE, ITS FACILITIES, AND THE SECURITY THEREOF. PROVIDED THAT NETSUITE DOES SO, NETSUITE SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY FAILURE IN SECURITY OF THE WEB SITE, LOCALIZED PRODUCT, OR ITS FACILITIES.
PROVIDED THAT NETSUITE HAS TAKEN REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS TO BACKUP DATA FOR WHICH IT HAS BEEN PAID STORAGE FEES, NETSUITE SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF DATA. IF NETSUITE FAILED TO TAKE SUCH PRECAUTIONS, NETSUITE's LIABILITY FOR LOSS OF DATA SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AVERAGE ANNUAL AMOUNTS INVOICED BY NETSUITE FOR THE STORAGE OF DATA FOR THE PARTICULAR CUSTOMER.
THE LOCALIZED PRODUCT MAY PROVIDE, OR THIRD PARTIES MAY PROVIDE THROUGH THE LOCALIZED PRODUCT, LINKS TO OTHER INTERNET SITES OR RESOURCES. BECAUSE NETSUITE HAS NO CONTROL OVER SUCH SITES AND RESOURCES, NETSUITE SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE AVAILABILITY OF SUCH EXTERNAL SITES OR RESOURCES OR FOR ANY CONTENT, ADVERTISING, LOCALIZED PRODUCTS OR OTHER MATERIALS ON OR AVAILABLE FROM SUCH OTHER SITES OR RESOURCES. NETSUITE DOES NOT ENDORSE SUCH SITES OR RESOURCES.
EXCEPT FOR EITHER PARTY's LIABILITY ARISING UNDER ARTICLE 10, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS OR REVENUE, COST OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, RELIANCE, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE.
EXCEPT FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED USE OR EXPLOITATION BY A PARTY OF THE OTHER PARTY's INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OR A FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ARTICLE 10, AND EXCLUDING EACH PARTY's RESPONSIBILITIES UNDER ARTICLE 11, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY's LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE AVERAGE ANNUAL AMOUNTS PAID OR PAYABLE BY NETSUITE KK UNDER SECTION 6.1 FOR THE LOCALIZED PRODUCT.
THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER EITHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY STATED HEREIN.

NETSUITE KK TRADEMARKS
PRODUCT USE TERMS
Nothing in this Exhibit 1.17 shall be construed to limit any obligations or responsibilities of NetSuite KK under the Agreement above.
For purposes of the terms in this Exhibit 1.17 below (the "Product Use Terms"): (i) "End User" means the Customer under whose name NetSuite has provisioned the Localized Product; (ii) "Localized Product" means NetSuite's Localized Product as defined in the Agreement above; (iii) "Localized Documentation" means NetSuite's Localized Documentation as defined in the Agreement above; (iv) "Web Site" means NetSuite's web site, localized for the Territory, through which NetSuite makes the Localized Product available for Customers in the Territory, at the URL address identified by NetSuite for the Territory; and (v) "Customer Data" means any information, materials and other subject matter that End User submits to, transmits or distributes through, receives from, or stores using, the Localized Product or Web Site.
(a) Localized Product Provider. End User acknowledges and agrees that the Localized Product is being provided by NetSuite, Inc. or its affiliate (individually and collectively, "NetSuite"), as an application service provider, to NetSuite KK and that NetSuite KK (and not NetSuite) is selling the Localized Product to End User. Accordingly, NetSuite KK, and not NetSuite, shall be solely responsible to End User for the Localized Products, the Web Site and the operation and use thereof, notwithstanding any NetSuite branding on the Web Site. End User shall contact NetSuite KK, and not NetSuite, with respect to the Localized Product and Web Site, including to obtain any related support or assistance, report any problems, or the like.
(b) Activation. To activate End User's access to and use of the Localized Product and the Web Site, End User must read and agree to these Product Use Terms, including all disclaimers and limitations of liability, and limitations on access to and use of the Localized Product and the Web Site. The Product Use Terms shall govern all access to and use of the Localized Product and Web Site. No activation shall be effective, however, until the account is actually provisioned by NetSuite as described in Exhibit 5.2 of the Agreement, and NetSuite KK has the right to terminate this Agreement should NetSuite not agree to provision the account. All information provided by End User to activate an account shall be accurate and complete.
ASSERT OR BRING ANY CLAIM OR ACTION AGAINST NETSUITE OR ITS AFFILIATES IN CONNECTION WITH THE LOCALIZED PRODUCT, THE WEB SITE, OR THE PERFORMANCE OR USE THEREOF, WHETHER BASED UPON THESE PRODUCT USE TERMS OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING FOR ANY FAILURE OF THE LOCALIZED PRODUCTS AND INCLUDING BASED UPON ANY ANCILLARY OR RELATED LOCALIZED PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. Notwithstanding the foregoing, NetSuite is and shall be a third party beneficiary of, with the power to enforce, these Product Use Terms (including without limitation any disclaimers and limitations of liability) against the End User. No terms or conditions in these Product Use Terms shall limit any remedies available to NetSuite.
(d) Changes to Product Use Terms. These Product Use Terms may be updated at any time by providing an updated copy of the Product Use Terms to End User, which delivery may be by email or through the Web Site. Continued access to and use of the Localized Product and Web Site shall be subject to End User's agreement to any such updated Product Use Terms. If End User does not agree to the updated Product Use Terms, End User shall notify NetSuite KK and shall not access or use the Localized Product or Web Site further.
