IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT CONCERNING THE APPLICATION, THE SOFTWARE, OR ANY UPGRADES TO OR DOCUMENTATION FOR EITHER THE IKYDZ UNIT OR THE SOFTWARE, SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY PROVIDED IN SECTION 3.1. WITHOUT LIMITATION OF THE ABOVE, IKYDZ GRANTS NO WARRANTY THAT THE SOFTWARE IS ERROR-FREE OR WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, AND GRANTS NO WARRANTY REGARDING ITS USE OR THE RESULTS THEREFROM INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ITS CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY.
3.2. No Support. Nothing in this agreement shall obligate IKydz to provide any support for the Application or Software.

Licensee shall make reasonable efforts to promptly report to IKydz any defects it finds in the Software, as an aid to creating improved revisions of the Software.

3.4. Permission to Access. Licensee understands and agrees that directly requesting support through any communication channel for the setup, continued use, or technical troubleshooting of their Application will also constitute express permission to allow IKydz or its duly authorized support representatives to access the licensee’s configuration files and other information stored on IKydz servers. IKydz requires such access in order to troubleshoot, debug, or optimize the setup or use of Licensee’s Application. Licensee may limit the level of access IKydz or its duly authorized support representatives have to Licensee’s server-side information only by explicitly stating at the moment of the support request the specific limitations they wish to impose with regard to the logs, diagnostics, configurations, software processes, or other server-side information. IKydz or its duly authorized support representatives will only access such information under the conditions set by Licensee. Whether or not Licensee sets any limitations on remote access, IKydz will discontinue access upon resolution of the support request.
TERM AND TERMINATION
4.1. Term, Termination. This Agreement shall continue in full force and effect for as long as Licensee uses one or more Application instances, the Software, or any networked or stand-alone application designed to interact with the Application, a IKydz Device, or the Software. This Agreement will automatically terminate if Licensee fails to comply with any of the terms and conditions hereof, subject to a 15-day notice and cure period in the absence of wilful misconduct. In the event that IKydz could not reasonably expected to discover Licensee’s noncompliance, Licensee agrees and acknowledges that its noncompliance will result in automatic termination with no such notice and cure period.
4.2. Effect of Termination. Upon any termination of this Agreement, the rights and licenses granted to Licensee under this Agreement shall immediately terminate.

IN NO EVENT WILL IKYDZ’S LIABILITY WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY LICENSEE FOR THE APPLICATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
Licensee agrees to defend and indemnify IKydz and its licensors from and against any damages, costs, liabilities, settlement amounts and/or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with any claim, lawsuit or action by any third party that arises or results from the unauthorized or uncontemplated use or distribution of the Application or the Software by the Licensee.
