Any modifications made to the Licensed Software will terminate any duty of Dataloy under warranties and Dataloy's obligation to provide Maintenance and Support Services and will be regarded as a material breach of the Agreement.


In consideration of the License granted to End User under this Agreement, End User shall pay the License Fee specified in Dataloy's order confirmation within the time-limit specified therein.


All rights, title, ideas, know-how, techniques and interest in and to, and all Intellectual Property Rights in and related to, the Software and the Hosted Services and databases and collections of business sensitive data contained therein, including any improvements or modifications made to the Software and Hosted Services during the term of this Agreement, are and shall remain owned solely, exclusively and in its entirety by Dataloy, its successors and assigns. Nothing in this agreement shall be held or interpreted as transferring any such proprietary rights to End User.


For the purpose of this Agreement, "Confidential Information" shall mean any information and/or data in any form, whether tangible or intangible, which is disclosed to one party to this Agreement (the "Receiving Party") by the other party hereto (the "Disclosing Party") irrespective of the mode or medium by which same may be communicated, and which (a) is defined or designated as such under any provision of this Agreement and/or any other obligation of confidentiality between the parties or (b) consists of any of the following: (i) any and all object or source code of the Licensed Software, (ii) all cryptographic algorithms, all trade secrets and all business sensitive information (including but not limited to harbour- and distance data) embodied in the Licensed Software, and (iii) all customer lists, business plans, sales forecasts, and financial data of the End User or Dataloy.

The parties shall use the other party’s Confidential Information only for the purposes of, and in performance of their rights and obligations under, this Agreement. The parties shall as a minimum treat the Confidential Information in the same manner as they, or any diligent person, protects its own Confidential Information. The End User is permitted to disclose the Confidential Information to its employees and independent contractors on a need to know basis, provided that such employees and/or independent contractors have signed a written confidentiality agreement including the same terms as stated in this Agreement.

End User's License to use the Licensed Software and Hosted Services or any parts thereof according to this Agreement expires as of the date when the End User terminates it's subscription to Maintenance and Support Services.

All prices may be revised by Dataloy from time to time, usually influenced by consumer price inflation.

If the End User does not pay any amount due within agreed time, Dataloy is entitled to interest on late payments at one (1) per cent per month on the balance due. If payment is thirty (30) calendar days overdue, and End User fails to rectify this non-fulfilment within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving written notice from the Dataloy, the Dataloy have the right with immediate effect to terminate the Agreement.

The End User's obligations shall be fulfilled and notice shall be sent within fifteen (15) calendar days after termination.


The End User may request additional licenses by adding additional Software to the Licensed Software and by increasing the number of authorised Users. For such additional licenses, separate order forms must be submitted and End User shall pay additional License Fee(s) according to the Price List. Such additional licenses, when activated (through actual use), will also increase the Maintenance and Support Fee(s). All additional licenses are subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

The End User may deactivate and reactivate its authorized Users at any time, but shall at all times have at least two – 2 – active Users. After expiry of the first year of the contract period, End User shall only pay Maintenance and Support Fee with respect to active Users at any given time.

Dataloy makes no warranties, expressed or implied, including without limitation, any warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and all such other warranties are hereby disclaimed and excluded by Dataloy.


In no event regardless of any negligence shall Dataloy be liable for any consequential, incidental, indirect, special or consequential damages, including but not limited to any lost revenue, profits, investments, data, use or lost savings arising out of the use or inability to use the Licensed Software or Hosted Services even if Dataloy has been advised of the possibility of such potential loss or damage. Any liability for damages arising out of this Agreement shall in no event exceed the amount received by Dataloy from End User with respect to the particular transaction that gives rise to the liability, exclusive Maintenance and Support Fee(s), and value-added tax.


Dataloy will defend, indemnify and hold the End User harmless against any claim stating that the Licensed Software is violating any third party copyright or patent enforceable in the European Economic Area (the member states of the European Union, Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein) or the United States of America provided that:

  2. Dataloy has sole control of the defence and all related settlement negotiations,

  3. The End User provides Dataloy with all necessary assistance, information and authority to perform the above.

If Dataloy believes that the Licensed Software is likely to be subject of an infringement claim it may elect to replace or modify it to make it non-infringing or terminate the Agreement on six (6) months written notice to the End User. If Dataloy terminates the Agreement, the End User will be given a pro rata credit for any prepaid maintenance and License Fee for the part of the year of termination which the End User cannot make use of the Licensed Software.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Dataloy's indemnity obligations under this Clause 16 shall under any circumstances be limited to the total amount invoiced to End User by Dataloy under this Agreement during the last twelve (12) months prior to the day when the indemnity claim was raised by End User.


The End User warrants that neither the Licensed Software nor any other technical data received from Dataloy, nor any direct product thereof, will be shipped, transferred or exported, directly or indirectly, to any country in violation of the governing law of the Agreement.
