8. GENERAL TERMS
8.1. This Agreement constitutes the whole legal agreement between you and Kino-mo and governs your use of HYPERVSN SDK, and completely replaces any prior agreements between the parties in relation to HYPERVSN SDK. Kino-mo may modify this Agreement from time to time. Kino-mo shall use reasonable efforts to notify you of modifications. You may be required to click through the modified Agreement to show your acceptance and in any event your continued use of HYPERVSN SDK after the modification constitutes your acceptance to the modifications. If you do not agree to the modified Agreement, your sole remedy is to terminate your use of HYPERVSN SDK as described in Clause 5 of this Agreement.
8.2. All information disclosed by Kino-mo that is marked as confidential or proprietary or that you should reasonably understand to be confidential or proprietary is “Confidential Information”. Confidential Information includes non-public aspects of HYPERVSN SDK. Confidential Information shall not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public; (ii) was known to you before its disclosure hereunder; or (iii) is received from a third party, in each case without breach of an obligation owed to Kino-mo or anyone else. During and after the term of this Agreement, you shall (a) maintain Confidential Information in confidence (using at least the same measures as for your own confidential information, and no less than reasonable care) and not divulge it to any third party and (b) only use Confidential Information to fulfill your obligations under this Agreement. If you are compelled by law to disclose Confidential Information, you must provide Kino-mo with prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at Kino-mo’s cost, if Kino-mo wishes to contest the disclosure. You should not provide to Kino-mo any information that you consider confidential and you agree that Kinomo is not subject to any confidentiality obligations or use restrictions related to information that you may provide to Kino-mo in relation to this Agreement.
8.3. No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right under this Agreement or at law shall be a waiver of that right. If any part of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, that shall not affect the rest of this Agreement. This Agreement does not create any exclusive relationship between the parties nor any partnership, joint venture, employment or agency between them. Only a party, indemnified persons and the parties’ affiliates to this Agreement can enforce it.
8.4. Kino-mo may assign, novate, sub-license, transfer, sub-contract, charge or otherwise deal with this Agreement or any rights under it without your prior written consent. You acknowledge that Kino-mo shall have control over any use of HYPERVSN SDK. You, therefore, agree not to assign, novate, sub-license, transfer, sub-contract, charge or deal in any other manner with this Agreement or any rights under it without the prior written consent of Kinomo on such conditions that Kino-mo may specify (without which any such purported steps will confer no rights).
8.5. This Agreement and any dispute or claim in connection with it will be governed by the law of England and Wales without regard to its conflict of law provisions. The parties agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction and venue under this Agreement, and the parties hereby agree to submit to such jurisdiction exclusively.
8.6. The official language of this Agreement is English. In the event of any discrepancies between the English language version and any translation, the English language version shall prevail.
