Moreover, MYLAPS shall retain title to the products when any amount is payable by Buyer to MYLAPS on account of delivery or operations, including interest and charges, until MYLAPS has been paid in full. 10.2 For as long as the title to the products delivered has not been transferred to Buyer, MYLAPS hereby retains and Buyer hereby grants a first priority security interest in favor of MYLAPS as to all products and all proceeds resulting therefrom as a means of securing payment by Buyer to MYLAPS. Buyer hereby agrees to do all things that are reasonably requested by MYLAPS in order to assist MYLAPS in protecting its security interest, including executing any financing statements or security agreements necessary to perfect MYLAPS’s security interest under the applicable provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code. During such period, Buyer shall not be permitted to pledge the products or to grant any other right thereto to any third party. 10.3 Buyer shall keep the products delivered subject to retention of title carefully in custody and as identifiable property of MYLAPS and insure the products for the duration of the retention of title against damage caused by fire, explosion and water as well as against theft. Buyer shall submit the policy of said insurances to MYLAPS for inspection at its first request. 10.4 As soon as MYLAPS notifies Buyer of its wish to that effect, any claims of Buyer on the insurers of the products by virtue of the insurance maintained under Article 10.3 shall be pledged to MYLAPS in the manner set out Uniform Commercial Code as additional security for MYLAPS’s claims on Buyer. 10.5 If Buyer fails to fulfill its required financial obligations to MYLAPS or MYLAPS has reasonable grounds to fear that Buyer will fail to fulfill said obligations, MYLAPS shall have the right to take back the products delivered subject to retention of title.

No modification of, or preparation of derivative works based on the software or documentation is permitted. Buyer shall not compile, reverse compile, disassemble, analyze or reverse engineer any aspect of the software or in any way attempt to discover or reproduce source code for the software, or any portion thereof. Buyer shall not modify the software except in connection with fixing errors. Buyer shall not use the software to process data for third parties (“timesharing”). The software's source code and the technical documentation generated in developing the software shall not be made available to Buyer, not even if Buyer is prepared to pay financial compensation for making them available.

Buyer acknowledges that the software is provided free of charge in connection with the purchase of MYLAPS products, and that MYLAPS will suffer financial loss and potential damage to the MYLAPS’ system in the event its software is used with non-MYLAPS hardware and products. Therefore, in the event Buyer violates its obligations set out in this Article 24.8, MYLAPS reserves the right to collect a software usage fee of up to $1,000 for each individual instance of non-permitted use of the software, as a usage fee and not as a penalty, without prejudice to any other remedies it may have for such violation under these General Conditions. 24.9 Buyer shall immediately return all copies of the software in its possession to MYLAPS after the right to use the software ends.

In these General Conditions, “errors” shall mean a substantial failure to meet the functional or technical specifications stated in writing by MYLAPS and, in the case of custom-made software and websites, the functional or technical specifications expressly agreed between parties in writing. An error shall only exist if Buyer can document it and if it can be reproduced. Buyer shall be obliged to notify MYLAPS in writing of errors immediately. MYLAPS shall not have any obligations concerning fixing errors reported after the expiration of the three (3) month period referred to above unless parties have concluded a maintenance agreement which includes such a duty to fix. Repairs shall be performed free of charge, unless the software has been developed at Buyer’s instruction, in which case MYLAPS shall charge the repair costs according to its usual rates. MYLAPS may charge the repair costs according to its usual rates if there have been operating errors or improper use on Buyer’s part or other causes not imputable to MYLAPS. The warranty shall not include fixing mutilated or lost data. The warranty obligation shall be extinguished if Buyer makes changes or has made changes to the software without MYLAPS’s prior written permission. 24.13 MYLAPS DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE SHALL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, ERRORS OR OTHER DEFECTS OR THAT ALL ERRORS AND OTHER DEFECTS SHALL BE CORRECTED.

With respect to software provided or otherwise made available to Buyer by MYLAPS in connection with its products or services, it may be necessary for MYLAPS to perform scheduled or unscheduled repairs or maintenance or remotely patch or upgrade the software, which may temporarily degrade the quality of the services or result in partial or complete unavailability of the products or software. Date: December 2015 Page 10 of 12 MYLAPS provides no assurance that Buyer will receive advance notification of such activities or that the products, software or services will be uninterrupted or error-free. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing between Buyer and MYLAPS in a separate agreement, any degradation or interruption in the Software or Services shall not give rise to a refund or credit of any fees paid by Buyer. 24.17 BUYER AGREES THAT THE OPERATION AND AVAILABILITY OF THE SYSTEMS USED FOR ACCESSING AND INTERACTING WITH THE PRODUCTS AND SOFTWARE, INCLUDING TELEPHONE, COMPUTER NETWORKS AND THE INTERNET, OR TO TRANSMIT INFORMATION, CAN BE UNPREDICTABLE AND MAY, FROM TIME TO TIME, INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT ACCESS TO OR USE OR OPERATION OF THE PRODUCTS OR SOFTWARE.
