WGS undertakes to defend, indemnify and hold the Client harmless from and against any and all liabilities, damages and costs arising out of any claim by a third party alleging that the Woosmap Services (excluding Third Party Products) infringe any intellectual property rights of a third-party.

This indemnification is granted to the Client, provided that (i) the Client promptly notifies in writing WGS of any claim or legal action brought pursuant to this Section; (ii) the Client does not make any admission of liability, agreement or compromise in relation to the claim without the prior written consent of WGS; (iii) the Client provides WGS with reasonable assistance and cooperation in the defense and settlement of any claim, including by providing WGS with reasonable access to its premises and/or to any relevant information or records so as to enable WGS to assess and/or defend such claim; and (iv) WGS shall have exclusive control over the defense of such claim and any related settlement discussions.
If such claim is made, or if in WGS reasonable opinion is likely to be made, WGS may at its sole option and expense: i) secure the right for the Client to continue using the Woosmap Services in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, ii) modify the Woosmap Services so that the Woosmap Services cease to be infringing, or iii) replace the Woosmap Services with another element with similar functionalities.

This indemnification shall extend only to damages and costs (including reasonable legal fees) finally awarded against WGS by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to as a result of a written settlement entered into with the prior written consent of the Client. This indemnification is granted to WGS, provided that (i) WGS promptly notifies in writing the Client of any claim or legal action brought pursuant to this Section; (ii) WGS does not make any admission of liability, agreement or compromise in relation to the claim without the prior written consent of the Client; (iii) WGS provides the Client with reasonable assistance and cooperation in the defense and settlement of any claim; and (iv) the Client shall have exclusive control over the defense of such claim and any related settlement discussions.

Notice of breaches of the warranty shall be made through [email protected]oosmap.com . The remedies set forth in this Section shall be Client’s exclusive right and remedy and WGS’s sole obligation and liability for breach of these warranties unless the breach of warranty constitutes a material breach of this Agreement, in which case Client may elect to terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 17.1.

ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC TERMS
Certain Woosmap API on the Woosmap Platform and/or part of the Woosmap Services are subject to additional specific provisions herein. The Additional Specific Terms’ provisions shall complete or supplement the provisions of the General Terms as further detailed below. Client acknowledges and agrees that (i) it has full knowledge of all terms herein and those incorporated herein by reference, (ii) it agrees to be bound by and to comply with such Additional Specific Terms, and (iii) the Additional Specific Terms form an integral part of this Agreement, as set out in Section 3.1 of the General Terms.
1. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS RELATING TO THE USE OF THE GEOFENCING MOBILE SDK
1.1 Definition. For the purposes of this Section 1 of the Additional Specific Terms, the following term beginning with a capital letter, whether used in the singular or plural, shall have the following meaning: “Geofencing Mobile SDK” means a mobile cross-platform software development kit and associated documentation files, made available to the Client on the Woosmap Platform, allowing to obtain the geolocation coordinates of a mobile device, location based events and to run the Woosmap APIs and others location based events from other providers on a mobile environment, the use of which is governed by the provisions of Section 1 of the Additional Specific Terms.
1.2 Optional use of the Open Source Geofencing Mobile SDK. WGS has developed and makes available to the Client an open source Geofencing Mobile SDK module, which may be uploaded by the Client on the Woosmap Platform in order to run the Woosmap API on a mobile environment. The use of the Woosmap API in a mobile environment does not require the uploading and use of the Geofencing Mobile SDK made available by WGS. Client remains therefore free to use any other proprietary or third-party SDK solution of its choice to operate and run the Woosmap APIs on a mobile interface. WGS is under no obligation to make the Geofencing Mobile SDK available to the Client as part of the provision of the Woosmap Services and shall remain free at any time during the term of this Agreement to discontinue the provision of the Geofencing Mobile SDK and/or to make any changes to the Geofencing Mobile SDK that WGS would deem necessary.
1.3 Associated Services. For the sake of clarity, WGS does not provide the Client with support or maintenance services in connection with or relating to the Geofencing Mobile SDK. The provisions of Sections 6.1 and 6.2 of the General Terms are therefore not applicable to the Geofencing Mobile SDK.
1.4 Services Levels and Service Credits. WGS does not commit to comply with any Service Levels relating to the Geofencing SDK nor provide any Service Credits relating thereto. The provisions of Sections 7.2 of the General Terms are therefore not applicable.
1.5 Prices. The Geofencing Mobile SDK is provided free of charge to the Client and its Authorized Users. Therefore, the use of the Geofencing Mobile SDK by the Client and its Authorized Users will have no consequences on the mechanism of consumption of the Credits’ Volume described in Section 10 of the General Terms and will not be invoiced to the Client.
1.6 Grant of rights. The Geofencing Mobile SDK is governed by the terms of the MIT License available at https://github.com/woosmap/woosmap-geofencing-ios-sdk/blob/master/LICENSE.md, which grants, free of charge, any person obtaining a copy of the Geofencing Mobile SDK the right to deal in the Geofencing Mobile SDK without restriction, including without limitation of the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Geofencing Mobile SDK, and to permit persons to whom the Geofencing Mobile SDK is furnished to do so, provided that the copyright and permission notices included in the MIT license are included in all copies or substantial portions of the Geofencing Mobile SDK. When used in connection with the Woosmap Platform, the rights described above are granted to the Client under the condition that the Client holds the necessary rights to use the Woosmap Platform under the conditions described in the General Terms.
1.7 Warranty. Insofar as use of the Geofencing Mobile SDK is granted to the Client free of charge, the Client acknowledges and agrees that the Geofencing Mobile SDK is provided as is, without warranty , condition or other term or commitment of any kind express or implied, including but not limited to the terms as to quality merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title or non-infringement. The provisions of Section 12.1 of the General Terms are therefore not applicable to the Geofencing Mobile SDK. Client acknowledges and agrees that the provisions of Section 11.5.1 “Indemnification by WGS” of the General Terms are not applicable to the Geofencing Mobile SDK and WGS does not indemnify Client in any respect relating to the Geofencing Mobile SDK.
1.8 Liability. The provisions of Sections 13.1, 13.2, and 13.3 of the General Terms shall be replaced by the following: In no event shall WGS and/or its respective Affiliates be liable for any claim, direct or indirect damages or other liability, caused to the Client, its Authorized Users and/or its subcontractors arising from, out of or in connection with the Geofencing Mobile SDK or the use or other dealings in the Geofencing Mobile SDK.
1.9 Data processing. The Geofencing Mobile SDK may be uploaded by the Client and its Authorized Users for the entire term of this Agreement for use on its own environment. In this respect, the use of the Geofencing Mobile SDK by the Client does not result in any data processing on Woosmap servers. The data is hosted and processed on the Geofencing Mobile SDK user Client’s environment only. WGS does not process nor collect any Personal Data in the course of the provision of the Geofencing Mobile SDK to the Client.
