You own and retain all of your rights in and to all of Your Data. You represent, warrant and covenant that: (i) none of Your Data or AIX’s or its representatives’ use thereof as contemplated by this EUAA or any Platform Agreement violates or will violate any law, rule, regulation or ruling, or infringes upon, misappropriates or violates or will infringe upon, misappropriate, or violate any intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party, including without limitation any right of privacy; (ii) you have all necessary right, title, interest, consents and authorizations necessary to allow AIX to use Your Data as necessary to provide the Services to you and to make available same to AIX’s representatives including, without limitation, any authorizations required from any financial or other counterparties, intermediaries or agents and any consents required pursuant to any Data Security Laws; (iii) Your Data will be accurate and complete; and (iv) Your Data will not be obscene, threatening, libelous or otherwise unlawful, illegal or tortious.

You will comply with all applicable Data Security Laws, and all revisions and amendments thereto (whether existing prior to or after the date hereof). You will establish and maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards and security measures to protect against the unintended or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration or access of Platform Data, which safeguards and measures are consistent with applicable law, rules and regulations including, without limitation, the applicable Data Security Laws. You shall promptly notify AIX of any security breach or similar incident that has, or might have, compromised the privacy or security of any Platform Data in your possession, custody, or control. Other than as authorized in the Section entitled Platform Data herein, you will not share, disclose, or transmit to any person or entity, or otherwise grant any person or entity access to, any Platform Data that is Personally Identifiable Information unless (a) such person or entity agrees, in writing, to abide by data security obligations at least as restrictive as set forth herein and as required to be compliant with applicable law; and (b) you obtain AIX’s express, written consent before doing so, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. “Personally Identifiable Information” means information or data which identifies or can be used to identify an individual, such as, names, addresses, phone numbers or other unique or persistent identifiers, or which can be used to authenticate an individual, such as, social security numbers, driver’s license number, passwords, financial account numbers, credit card numbers, credit report information, health and medical information, or biometric identifiers.
You acknowledge that AIX will collect and generate data that is not Personally Identifiable Information, which without limitation includes data that is de-identified Personally Identifiable Information, resulting from your use of and access to the Platform (“De-Identified Data”). AIX shall own all rights, title and interest in and to such De-Identified Data and you hereby assign to AIX all rights, title and interest including, without limitation, all intellectual property rights therein, in and to such De-Identified Data to the extent you hold any such rights, title or interests. Such De-Identified Data may be used by AIX for any lawful business purpose (e.g., analytics) without a duty of accounting to you, provided that the De-Identified Data is used only in an aggregated form, without directly identifying you or any other person or entity as the source thereof.
RESTORING YOUR DATA
In the event of any damage, loss, destruction, or corruption of Your Data caused by AIX’s systems or the provision of the Services, AIX will use commercially reasonable efforts to restore Your Data from AIX’s most current back-up of Your Data in accordance with AIX’s then-current back-up policy.

CHANGES TO PLATFORM
AIX reserves the right to withdraw or amend the Platform, and any Service or material provided through or on the Platform, in its sole discretion without notice.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
For your convenience, the Platform may contain links to other websites not operated by or affiliated with AIX. AIX does not endorse or control such linked websites, and is therefore not responsible for any information contained on those websites. Accordingly, AIX will not be liable, directly or indirectly, for any damages resulting from the use or reliance on information or advertisements contained in a linked website.
As applicable, AIX, third parties and their licensors retain all rights, title and interest, including, without limitation, all intellectual property rights, in and to the Platform, Services, Technology, Platform Data and any additions, improvements, updates, and modifications thereto.

All rights not expressly granted hereunder are reserved.
From time to time, you may provide, upon AIX’s request or at your own volition, suggestions, comments, improvements, and other feedback concerning the Platform, Services, Technology, or Platform Data (“Feedback”). The parties understand and agree that all rights, title, and interest including, but not limited to, any and all intellectual property rights in and to such Feedback shall be exclusively owned by AIX.

You understand that the Platform may be used to facilitate the transmission of certain transaction package documents, agreements, and other forms and reports that are required to support the trade and settlement process based upon the inputs and Your Data, including, but not limited to your proprietary forms to the extent you have granted permission for the Platform to generate your proprietary forms (“Your Forms”) (collectively, all of the foregoing, including Your Forms, the “Transaction Package”). All rights, title, and interest, including intellectual property rights, in and to the Transaction Packages (excluding Your Forms and any of Your Data contained in any of the Transaction Packages) are expressly reserved by AIX. AIX hereby grants to you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable right and license to reproduce, privately display, privately distribute and prepare derivative works of such Transaction Packages (excluding Your Forms) solely as needed for you to facilitate the electronic transmission of a Transaction Package through the Platform. To the extent you upload or otherwise make available Your Forms through the Platform, you hereby grant to AIX a non-exclusive, irrevocable, worldwide, sublicensable, transferable right and license to reproduce, publicly and privately display, publicly and privately distribute and prepare derivative works of Your Forms as needed for AIX and its contractors to provide the Services to or on behalf of you.
If, for any reason, your assignment in any Feedback or De-Identified Data in accordance with this EUAA is not enforceable or is invalid, you hereby grant to AIX a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully transferable, fully sublicensable, non-exclusive right and license to make, use, have made, advertise, market, import, export, offer for sale, sell, lease, rent, privately and publicly display, privately and publicly distribute, privately and publicly perform, reproduce, and prepare derivative works of the Feedback and De-Identified Data for any reason and no reason whatsoever.

NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY AIX OR ITS RELATED PARTIES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTIES IN ADDITION TO, THE WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS EUAA. IN NO EVENT WILL YOU MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES TO AUTHORIZED PARTIES ON BEHALF OF AIX.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS EUAA, IN NO EVENT WILL AIX, ITS AFFILIATES AND ITS OR THEIR RELATED PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE), ARISING IN ANY WAY IN CONNECTION WITH OR OUT OF THIS EUAA, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE PLATFORM OR ANY SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY (OR ANY PLATFORM DATA, TRANSACTION PACKAGES, OR YOUR DATA PROVIDED OR PROCESSED THROUGH THE PLATFORM OR ANY SERVICES), EVEN IF AIX HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOSS OF DATA, OPPORTUNITY, LOSS OF REVENUES OR PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS EUAA, AIX’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS EUAA, THE PLATFORM AND ALL SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS EUAA AND ANY PLATFORM AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF TWELVE (12) MONTH’S FEES PAYABLE TO AIX UNDER SUCH PLATFORM AGREEMENT FOR YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM AND SERVICES UNDER THIS EUAA OR ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($1,000). YOU AGREE THAT THE FEES REFLECT THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THIS EUAA AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT AIX WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THIS EUAA WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS ON ITS LIABILITY. IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES IS NOT PERMITTED, AIX’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
AIX reserves the right to monitor your use of the Platform and any communications by you related to such use. AIX assumes no liability in connection with its monitoring activities.
You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless AIX, its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, partners, employees, representatives, contractors, and agents (collectively, “Related Parties”) from and against any claim, counterclaim, allegation or action or losses, liabilities, damages, fees, expenses and costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) brought against or incurred by AIX or any of its Related Parties arising out of or under or related to or resulting from (a) any technical disruption of or damage to the Platform, Services or Technology caused directly or indirectly by your use of the Platform, Services or Technology; (b) any breach of your warranties, representations or obligations under this EUAA; © your unauthorized use of or access to the Platform or Services; (d) Your Data or AIX’s or its Related Parties’ use, handling, storage, processing, transmission, reproduction, display, distribution, or preparation of derivative works thereof in accordance with this EUAA or a Platform Agreement; (e) your input or transmission of corrupt, inaccurate, or incomplete data through the Platform or otherwise in connection with the Services; (f) the acts or omissions of your representatives, employees, contractors and agents related to this EUAA; or (g) any security breach of Platform Data in your possession, custody or control.
It is not the responsibility or obligation of AIX to authenticate, confirm or otherwise verify the accuracy or propriety of the Platform Data. AIX shall not be liable for any damage or loss arising from inaccurate or unauthorized transmissions via the Platform or email.
The EUAA, and all claims or causes of action (whether in contract, tort or statute) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to the EUAA, shall be governed by, and enforced in accordance with, the internal laws of the State of Delaware, including its statutes of limitation, without reference to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. Venue for any action (including arbitration) shall lie exclusively in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Should your use of the Platform or the Platform Data be contrary to the laws of the jurisdiction from where you access the Platform, then the Platform is not intended for your use, and you should discontinue use of the Platform. You are solely responsible for knowing the laws of your jurisdiction and for assuring your compliance with such laws.
USE OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES; LIMITED AVAILABILITY
Not all products or services described on the Platform may be available to all persons or entities or in all jurisdictions. The Platform was created in the United States. The Platform and/or the Services may not comply with legal requirements in foreign countries. The Platform Data is not provided for and may not be used by any person or entity in any jurisdiction in violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations.
If any provision of the EUAA is held to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, that provision will be removed to the extent necessary to comply with the law, and replaced by a provision that most closely approximates the original intent and economic effect of the original to the extent consistent with the law, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force.
You agree that AIX, at its sole discretion, may require you to submit any dispute concerning the application, construction, validity, interpretation or enforcement of this EUAA or arising from the use of the Platform or Services, to binding arbitration in accordance with this section, to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before a single arbitrator, who shall have formerly served as a federal judge, in accordance with the then-prevailing Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures of the American Arbitration Association, who shall have the exclusive authority to resolve the dispute. You agree that you will be responsible for one-half of the arbitrator’s fees unless the arbitrator orders otherwise. You agree that the arbitrator’s decision will be deemed final and binding in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not have the right to modify or change any of the terms of this EUAA or any Platform Agreement. You agree that the arbitrator, and not any court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute. You agree that the arbitrator may provide all appropriate remedies at law and will have the power to summarily adjudicate claims, grant injunctive relief or other provisional remedies or enter summary judgment in appropriate cases.
Notwithstanding these rules, however, such proceeding shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware as set forth herein. Any award in an arbitration initiated under this clause shall be limited to monetary damages and shall include no injunction or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount. Further, the arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, consequential or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages in any arbitration initiated under this clause, except as may be required by statute.
In no event shall either party be liable to the other party, or be deemed to have breached this EUAA, for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this EUAA (except for any obligations to make payments), if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond such party’s reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, flood, fire earthquake, explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, or passage of law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo.
You may not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your obligations hereunder, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of AIX. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section will be null and void. No assignment or delegation will relieve you of any of your obligations hereunder. This EUAA is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
