This Agreement expires, terminates, and ends immediately and automatically, without need for any notice or other act: (i) upon the end of the License Term, or (ii) any fee or price due for the License, or any other payment due under this Agreement, is not paid to or received by NQ Mobile, whether or not resulting from any fault by you.
This Agreement also terminates immediately and automatically, without need for any notice or other act, if and when you (i) breach or violate or default under any provision of this Agreement or obligation of you or Your Child, or (ii) you or Your Child engages in any act or omission that constitutes or results in any breach or violation of, or default under, any provision of this Agreement, or (iii) engage, or encourage others to engage, in any misleading, fraudulent, improper, unlawful, illegal, or dishonest act or omission in connection with the Software and/or the Associated Services or relating to this Agreement or the Software and/or the Associated Services; or (iv) you fail to agree to any change, modification, amendment, or alteration of this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement; or (v) you or Your Child fails to permit any installation or inclusion of any Modification provided by NQ Mobile to you or Your Child, or to the Software installed on the Device.

NQ Mobile may give you notice of any termination, expiration, or cancellation if NQ Mobile decides to do so in its sole discretion, provided, however, that, giving any notice of termination shall not obligate or require NQ Mobile to give such notice in any other instance of a termination.
You may terminate this Agreement at any time by giving NQ Mobile written notice of termination addressed to NQ Mobile at the address of its headquarters and to the attention of the "Legal Department" at such address.
Any access to or use of the Software and/or the Associated Services following any event of termination of this Agreement (e.g., if NQ and/or you are unaware of such termination) shall not negate such termination or the fact that such termination occurred.

NQ MOBILE MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS HEREUNDER OR REGARDING THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES. NQ MOBILE DISCLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY HARM RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES. THE SOFTWARE AND THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE". NQ MOBILE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ALL EXPRESS, IMPLIED AND STATUTORY WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, WORKMANSHIP, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS, AND ANY WARRANTIES REGARDING THE SECURITY, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS AND PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES. YOU DOWNLOAD AND USE THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES TO YOUR HARDWARE DEVICE(S) OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OR USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES.
IN THE EVENT OF ANY BREACH OF ANY WARRANTY, OR ANY FAILURE OF THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES TO CONFORM TO ANY WARRANTY, THAT APPLIES AND IS NOT OR CANNOT BE EFFECTIVELY DISCLAIMED HEREUNDER UNDER APPLICABLE LAW: (I) YOU MAY NOTIFY NQ MOBILE DURING THE LICENSE TERM THEREOF AND NQ MOBILE MAY CORRECT SUCH FAILURE OR BREACH, AND (II) IF YOU PAID TO NQ MOBILE A LICENSE FEE FOR THE LICENSE DURING SUCH LICENSE TERM AND SUCH CORRECTION DOES NOT OCCUR OR NQ MOBILE DECIDES TO REPAY SUCH LICENSE FEE, NQ MOBILE WILL REFUND SUCH LICENSE FEE FOR SUCH LICENSE TERM, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NQ MOBILE WILL HAVE NO OTHER WARRANTY OBLIGATION OR OTHER LIABILITY WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE, THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES, OR THIS AGREEMENT, AND ANY OTHER CLAIMS, LOSSES, LIABILITIES, DAMAGES, COSTS OR EXPENSES ATTRIBUTABLE TO ANY FAILURE TO CONFORM TO ANY WARRANTY WILL BE YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY. THE FOREGOING REFUND OF THE LICENSE FEE, IF ANY, CONSTITUTES THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY THAT NQ MOBILE SHALL HAVE UNDER AND RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SOFTWARE OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES. IF NO LICENSE FEE HAS BEEN PAID TO NQ MOBILE, SUCH AS IF THE LICENSE IS FOR A TRIAL PERIOD, YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO ANY PAYMENT BY NQ MOBILE.
NEITHER NQ MOBILE NOR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS OR AFFILIATES WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY USER FOR ANY USE OR MISUSE OF THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES. SUCH EXCLUSION INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO: (A) DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE (EVEN IF NQ MOBILE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES); (B) APPLIES WHETHER DAMAGES ARISE FROM USE OR MISUSE OF AND RELIANCE ON THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES, FROM INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES, OR FROM THE INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION, OR TERMINATION OF THE SOFTWARE AND/OR THE ASSOCIATED SERVICES (INCLUDING ANY DAMAGES INCURRED BY THIRD PARTIES); AND (C) APPLIES NOTWITHSTANDING A FAILURE OF THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. IF AND TO THE EXTENT THAT NQ MOBILE OR ANY OF ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS OR AFFILIATES IS LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING PROVISIONS, YOU AGREE THAT THEIR AGGREGATE AND COMPLETE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE, IF APPLICABLE, FOR THE LICENSE TO ACCESS, INSTALL, AND USE THE SOFTWARE, AND THE RIGHT TO ACCESS AND USE ANY ASSOCIATED SERVICES, UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
You will indemnify and hold harmless NQ Mobile and its parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, shareholders, agents and employees, from any and all losses to the extent resulting from any action, suit, proceeding, claim, demand, investigation or assessment due to or arising directly or indirectly out of (i) your or Your Child’s access and/or use of the Software and/or the Associated Services, (ii) any violation of any applicable law arising from you or Your Child's conduct or in connection with your or Your Child's use or misuse of the Software and/or the Associated Services, (iii) any alleged violation of this Agreement or other applicable agreements between you and NQ Mobile, (iv) any negligence (whether sole, contributory, or comparative) and willful misconduct of you or Your Child, and (v) any alleged violation of any applicable law or regulation (EXPRESSLY INCLUDING, IN EACH CASE, ANY SUCH LOSSES ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE ORDINARY, SOLE OR CONTRIBUTORY NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY OF NQ MOBILE). NQ Mobile reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, but doing so will not excuse your indemnity obligations.
Some countries and jurisdictions do not allow the conditions, limitations, disclaimer, or exclusion of implied warranties, representations, or conditions, so some of the disclaimers, exclusions, limitations, and/or obligations in Sections X, XI, XII, and/or XIII of this Agreement may not apply to you. In such case: (i) the conditions, limitations, disclaimer, or exclusion of implied warranties, representations, or conditions shall not be invalidated or nullified but be revised and remain valid and enforceable such that they are effective to the greatest extent as permitted under applicable law, and (ii) if any implied warranties or conditions would then otherwise arise, such implied warranties and conditions will be limited in duration to ninety (90) days, or if applicable law requires a longer time period, the shortest legally required time period, from the date of the delivery of the Software and/or the Associated Services.
You agrees and acknowledges that NQ Mobile has set its fees and the parties have entered into this Agreement in reliance on the limited warranties, warranty disclaimers, limitations and exclusions of liability, and indemnity set forth herein, that the same reflect an agreed-to allocation of risk between the parties (including the risk that a remedy may fail of its essential purpose and cause consequential loss), and that the same forms an essential basis of the bargain between the parties. You agree and acknowledge that NQ Mobile would not have been able to license the Software and/or make available any Associated Service at the amount charged on an economic basis without such limitations.
If use of the Software and/or any of the Associated Services may be enjoined due to a claim of infringement by a third party then, at its sole discretion and expense, NQ Mobile may do one of the following: (a) negotiate a license or other agreement so that the Software and/ or the any of the Associated Services is no longer subject to such a potential claim, (b) modify the Software and/or any of the Associated Services so that it becomes non-infringing, provided such modification can be accomplished without materially affecting the performance and functionality of the Software and/or the Associated Services, (c) replace the Software and/or the Associated Services with non-infringing software, or (d) terminate this Agreement by written notice of termination to you, in which case you shall stop using the Software and/or the Associated Services. The foregoing sets out the entire liability of NQ Mobile and the sole obligations of NQ Mobile to you and Your Child in respect of any claim that the Software and/ or any of the Associated Services or its use infringes any third party rights.
You acknowledge that the Software, or any part thereof, may be subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (Title 15 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations Part 730 et seq.), U.S. trade embargo regulations (Title 31 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations Part 500 et seq.), other regulations of the U.S. Departments of Commerce, State, and Treasury (collectively, "Export Control Law"). Accordingly, you agree that you will comply with all Export Control Law and that the Software, or any part or information thereof, or any access or use thereof, will not be: (i) reexported, sold, or otherwise transferred outside the United States of America or to other countries or to any person in violation of Export Control Law or any other U.S. law; or (ii) made available to any person that you know or have reason to suspect will cause the Software, or any part or information thereof, or any access or use thereof, to be made available outside the United States of America or to other countries or to any person in violation of Export Control Law or any other U.S. law. You are solely responsible for determining its obligations under Export Control Law.
You agree that damages alone may be an insufficient remedy for violations of the terms of Sections III, VI, VII, IX, and XVIII of this Agreement, and that NQ Mobile may suffer irreparable damage as a result of such a violation. Accordingly, NQ Mobile shall be entitled, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of Sections III, VI, VII, IX, and XVIII of this Agreement, to seek injunctive relief (or equivalent relief available under the law of the jurisdiction where NQ Mobile seeks such relief) to enforce the provisions of Sections III, VI, VII, IX, and XVIII of this Agreement without posting a bond. Injunctive (or such equivalent) relief shall be in addition to any and all other rights or remedies available to NQ Mobile, including, but not limited to, damages or other relief or remedies for such violation. Assertion or the failure to assert injunctive (or such equivalent) relief shall not constitute a waiver of any such other rights or remedies. In the event it is necessary for NQ Mobile to institute legal proceedings to enforce Sections III, VI, VII, IX, and XVIII of this Agreement, NQ Mobile will be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by NQ Mobile in such proceedings if it prevails in such proceedings.
This Agreement may not be assigned, nor may any of your obligations under this Agreement be delegated, in whole or in part, by you by operation of law, merger, or any other means without NQ Mobile’s express prior written consent and any attempted assignment without such consent will be null and void. NQ Mobile may, without notice to you, assign this Agreement. Further, NQ Mobile may perform all obligations, if any, to be performed by NQ Mobile under this Agreement directly or may have some or all obligations performed by its affiliates, agents and/or independent contractors.
If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any clause of this Agreement to be unenforceable for any reason, that clause of this Agreement shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
The internal laws of the State of New York, U.S.A. (without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York, U.S.A. or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of laws of any other jurisdiction) shall govern all matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement and all of the matters or transactions it contemplates, including its validity, interpretation, construction, performance and enforcement and any disputes or controversies arising therefrom. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to this Agreement or any transaction hereunder. You consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of competent state and federal courts in the State of New York, U.S.A., for any litigation or proceeding and to the venue of such litigation or proceeding in New York, New York, U.S.A.
The parties do not intend any third party to be a third party beneficiary under this Agreement, and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed for any third party to be a third party beneficiary or to confer any third party beneficiary rights or status on any third party.
All terms, conditions and provisions of this Agreement and any privacy statement or other policies and terms and conditions of use accepted by you, constitute the entire agreement between you and NQ Mobile and shall supersede all other communications, representations, agreements or understandings, either oral or written, with you with respect to the subject matter hereof.
