Ownership, Intellectual Property Rights and Nondisclosure
Genialis and its licensors are the sole owners of the Product and the Services and of all copyright, trade secret, patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights therein and thereto.

Confidential Information. From time to time, either party (the “Disclosing Party”) may disclose or make available to the other party (the “Receiving Party”), whether orally or in physical form, confidential or proprietary information concerning the Disclosing Party and/or its business, products, customers, services, policyholders and/or claimants, including but not limited to information and/or documents concerning; (1) financial information, strategic business plans, policies and/or methods; (2) marketing, claims, sales, underwriting strategy, and decision making processes; (3) pricing and/or profit information; (4) lists of actual or prospective customers; (5) proprietary and/or confidential intellectual property; and (6) intellectual property of third parties licensed to the disclosing party (collectively, “Confidential Information”) in connection with this Section IV.. Each party agrees that during the Term and thereafter: (i) it will use Confidential Information belonging to the Disclosing Party solely for the purpose(s) of this Section IV.; and (ii) it will take reasonable precautions, but no less than it would take to prevent the disclosure of its own similar Confidential Information, to ensure that it does not disclose Confidential Information belonging to the Disclosing Party to any third party (other than the Receiving Party’s employees, contractors, and/or professional advisors on a need-to-know basis who are bound by obligations of nondisclosure and limited use at least as stringent as those contained herein) without first obtaining the Disclosing Party’s written consent. Upon request by the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party will return all copies of any Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party.

The Receiving Party will be responsible for any breach of this Section by its employees, representatives, and agents. Non-public information regarding the Product and the Services (including but not limited to their performance, operation, and data formats) and the Documentation are the Confidential Information of Genialis. The terms of this Section IV. are the Confidential Information of both parties, but may be disclosed by either party with its advisors and potential investors or acquirers who are subject to confidentiality obligations or to enforce its terms.
Exclusions. For purposes hereof, “Confidential Information” will not include any information that the Receiving Party can establish by convincing written evidence: (i) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to any Confidential Information belonging to the Disclosing Party; (ii) was acquired by the Receiving Party from a third party having the legal right to furnish same to the Receiving Party; or (iii) was at the time in question (whether at disclosure or thereafter) generally known by or available to the public (through no fault of the Receiving Party).
Required Disclosures. These confidentiality obligations will not restrict any disclosure required by order of a court or any government agency, provided that, to the extent permitted by law, the Receiving Party gives prompt notice to the Disclosing Party of any such order and reasonably cooperates with the Disclosing Party at the Disclosing Party’s request and expense to resist such order or to obtain a protective order.
Subscriber Content. Genialis acknowledges and agrees that Subscriber Content is the Confidential Information of Subscriber (subject to Section (b) Exclusions) and is therefore subject to the restrictions on disclosure and use set forth in Section (a) Confidential Information above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Genialis may use or disclose Subscriber Content or other Subscriber Confidential Information (i) to the extent necessary to provide the Services to Subscriber as contemplated herein, (ii) monitor Subscriber’s and its Registered Users’ use of the Services for security purposes, (iii) enforce the terms of this Section IV., and (iv) to study usage of the Services, including to aggregate with other subscribers’ usage data, in order to identify patterns of use and/or improve Genialis’s products and services. Subscriber hereby represents, warrants and confirms that Subscriber has the full right and authority, and has obtained all necessary authorizations, licenses and consents, as applicable, for: (A) Subscriber to provide the Subscriber Content to Genialis, (B) Genialis to analyze, store and otherwise use such Subscriber Content, (C) Genialis to provide the Services and otherwise perform its obligations hereunder, and (D) Subscriber to grant Genialis the rights in Subscriber Content as set forth herein, in each case with respect to items (A) through (D) above without violating the intellectual property, privacy or other rights of any individuals or third parties and without violating any applicable laws, rules or regulations. Under no circumstances will Genialis be liable for any errors or omissions in any Subscriber Content, or for any loss, liability or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of or reliance upon any Subscriber Content or the analysis thereof by Genialis in accordance with the terms of this Section IV.. Subscriber understands that through Subscriber’s use of the Services, Subscriber consents to the collection, storage and use of Subscriber Content as described in this Section IV.. Subject to the restrictions and protections described in this Section IV., by uploading, submitting, posting or otherwise providing Subscriber Content to, or through the Services or the Genialis Server, Subscriber agrees that Genialis may use such Subscriber Content to: (1) operate, maintain and administer the Product and the Services, (2) develop, modify, use and improve the Product, the Services, or other software analysis products or tools developed or maintained by Genialis from time to time (including for example and without limitation databases with aggregated or de-identified data, algorithms and analysis services), (3) generate, utilize and publish aggregated or de-identified data, statistics, analytical results and trend information regarding use of the Services, and (4) monitor Subscriber’s and Registered Users’ use of the Services for security purposes and for purposes of enforcing the terms of this Section IV..
Equitable Relief. Because unauthorized access, use, disclosure or transfer of the Confidential Information or other intellectual property of either party in violation of Section Ownership, Intellectual Property Rights and Nondisclosure of this Section IV. will diminish substantially the value of such Confidential Information or other intellectual property and irreparably harm the owner of such Confidential Information or intellectual property, if either party breaches the provisions of this Section Ownership, Intellectual Property Rights and Nondisclosure of this Section IV., the other party shall be entitled to seek equitable relief, including a restraining order, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from any court, without providing a bond or other security, in addition to any other remedy to which such party may be entitled at law or in equity.
Limited Warranty; Limitations of Liability
Genialis warrants to Subscriber that the Services shall perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation and with any specifications set forth in the Key Subscription Terms above. Genialis’s sole obligation, and Subscriber’s sole remedy, with respect to any breach of this limited warranty of performance shall be for Genialis to correct such nonconformance or provide reasonable alternative functionality at Genialis’s sole cost and expense.
EXCEPT AS STATED ABOVE, GENIALIS DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, BOTH EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE (IRRESPECTIVE OF ANY PREVIOUS COURSE OF DEALING BETWEEN THE PARTIES OR CUSTOM OR USAGE OF TRADE), NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE.
GENIALIS’S LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES TO SUBSCRIBER FOR ANY CLAIMS WHATSOEVER ARISING UNDER THIS SECTION IV., AND FOR ALL SUCH CLAIMS IN THE AGGREGATE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ANY CLAIM OR ACTION, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE LOWER OF THE (A) SUM OF USD 1.000,00 AND (B) THE SUM OF SUBSCRIPTION FEES ACTUALLY PAID TO GENIALIS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTH-PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE MONTH IN WHICH THE CLAIM AROSE.
GENIALIS SHALL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES, WHETHER OR NOT GENIALIS HAS BEEN MADE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOSS OF DATA OR CONTENT OR LOST PROFITS.
Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that obligations of Genialis under this Section IV. have been set by Genialis in reliance on the limitations of liability and disclaimers of warranty set forth above and that these provisions are an essential term of this Section IV..
Genialis shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Subscriber and its officers, directors, employees, and shareholders from and against any and all any damages, penalties, judgments and reasonable related costs and expenses, including but not limited to reasonable legal fees and expenses, (“Damages”) arising out of any third party claim or allegation (a “Claim”) that Subscriber’s use or access of the Product or Services in accordance with the terms of this Section IV. infringes the patent, copyright or other intellectual property right of any third party, except to the extent (a) due to any Subscriber Content or specific materials that Subscriber uses or uploads into the Product or (b) such claim is based on Subscriber’s use of the Product or Services in combination with other services and products not supplied by Genialis and not required by the Documentation.
Subscriber shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Genialis and its officers, directors, employees, and shareholders from and against any and all any Damages, including but not limited to reasonable legal fees and expenses, arising out of any third party Claim that any Subscriber Content posted or loaded into the Product or Services by Subscriber or its Authorized Collaborators or Registered Users infringes the patent, copyright or other intellectual property right of any third party or violates any laws, including privacy laws.
If Subscriber or Genialis intends to claim indemnification hereunder (for itself or for another Indemnitee) with respect to any Damages arising under a Claim, then Subscriber or Genialis (the “Indemnified Party”) shall promptly notify the other party (the “Indemnifying Party”) of any Claim in respect of which the Indemnified Party (whether for itself or for one of the persons entitled to indemnification under previous two paragraphs) intends to claim such indemnification reasonably promptly after the Indemnified Party is aware thereof, and the Indemnifying Party shall assume the defense of any related third party action, suit or proceeding with counsel of the Indemnifying Party’s choice. The indemnity agreement in this Section Indemnification shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any claim, loss, damage or expense if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. The failure of the Indemnified Party to deliver notice to the Indemnifying Party within a reasonable time after the Indemnified Party becomes aware of any such matter, if prejudicial to Indemnifying Party’s ability to defend such action, shall relieve the Indemnifying Party of any liability under this Section Indemnification with respect to such Claim. The Indemnified Party and all indemnitees shall cooperate fully with the Indemnifying Party and its legal representatives in the investigation of any matter covered by this indemnification.
Should the Product or Software become, or in Genialis’s opinion, be likely to become the subject of a claim or an injunction preventing its use as contemplated herein, Genialis may, at its option (i) procure for Subscriber the right to continue to access the Product or the Services hereunder, (ii) replace or modify the Product or the Services so that they become non-infringing, or, if Genialis determines, in its sole discretion, that (i) and (ii) are not commercially practical for Genialis, then (iii) Genialis may terminate this Section IV. and applicable Key Subscription Terms and refund to Subscriber a pro-rated amount of the Subscription Fees paid in advance for the then current Initial Term or Renewal Term based on the remaining portion of the then current Term for which such Subscription Fees were paid.
This Section Indemnification states the entire liability of Genialis with respect to infringement of third party intellectual property rights by the Product or Services or any part thereof or by its operation.
Trademark and Names; Publicity. This Section IV. does not grant either party the right to use any trademark, trade name or logo of the other party in any advertising or promotional material, except that: (i) Genialis may identify Subscriber as a customer of Genialis, including as a subscriber of the Product, in promotional materials and published lists of Genialis’s customers; and (ii) Subscriber may disclose its use of the Product to its customers for purposes of promoting the use of the Product to Genialis’s customers. Subscriber agrees that Genialis may issue a press release, in a form to be mutually agreed by Subscriber and Genialis, describing this subscription including a quote from Subscriber. Genialis agrees that Subscriber may issue a press release, in a form to be mutually agreed by Subscriber and Genialis, describing the subscription and the business relationship between Subscriber and Genialis. Subscriber, or Subscriber’s third party licensors, as applicable, retain any intellectual property rights in the Subscriber Content and in Subscriber’s name and logo, subject to the rights and licenses contained in this Section IV..
V. Genialis Platform Free Trial
The following provisions under this Section V. are applicable specifically for any use of the Genialis Platform during a Free Trial, which we may offer from time to time to you, but are not obliged to do so. In cases of contradiction between the provisions of this Section V. and provisions of Sections III., or IV., the provisions of Sections V. prevail for the purpose of Free Trial, which does not limit the use of any non contradictory provisions. The following conditions apply to your Free Trial unless agreed to the contrary in writing.
Services: Genialis will provide during the Subscription Term one (1) Registered Users of Subscriber with access to Genialis Platform Free Trial (the “Product”), that is the Genialis’s online, Web-based application provided by Genialis via “app.genialis.com/expressions”, “app.genialis.com/swiftbio” or other websites we may designate. Subscriber and Registered Users can access and use the Product subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Section IV. Access to more Registered Users may be granted to you at sole discretion of Genialis.
The Product includes tools for data analysis, interactive visualization, exploration and storage of Samples. “Sample” means a lineage of data objects, with a unique identifier, automatically created when raw data are uploaded. This digital Sample is meant to reflect a unique biological entity, such as a single tissue extraction processed for RNA-seq. A technical replicate of the same material would be a new Sample, as would a DNA-seq library from the same tissue extract.
Subscription Term: The Subscription Term is 7 days after registration for Free Trial and may be extended at any time at sole discretion of Genialis. The Subscription Term is not renewed automatically.
Subscription Fees: During the Subscription Term of the Free Trial, we will not charge you Subscription Fees.
