All rights not expressly granted to Customer hereunder are expressly reserved by OpenTech. All copyrights, patents, trade secrets, trademarks, service marks, trade names, moral rights, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights in the Products and all improvements, enhancements, or modifications thereto shall remain the sole and exclusive property of OpenTech.
TITLE, CONFIDENTIALITY, AND RESTRICTIONS; RELOCATION
The Software and Hardware will be collectively known as “Products.” Title and risk of loss to the INSOMNIAC™ CIA hardware set forth in this Agreement (“Hardware”), excluding any Software embedded therein, will transfer to Customer upon complete payment of the fees specified in this Agreement and the Hardware leaving OpenTech’s facilities. Customer shall not (nor shall it permit any third party to): (i) copy or manufacture the Products or any portion thereof or otherwise use the Products to develop a competing product or service; (ii) translate, modify, adapt, enhance, extend, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to derive the trade secrets embodied in the Products or any portion thereof or remove any proprietary, disclaimer, or warning notice thereon; or (iii) use or allow the transfer, transmission, export, or re-export of the Products or any portion thereof outside the territories set forth in this Agreement or otherwise in violation of applicable law. The parties agree that information designated by a party as confidential or reasonably understood by the parties to be confidential, is confidential and proprietary to the disclosing party, and each party agrees to keep such information strictly confidential until the information becomes public knowledge without breach of this Agreement or similar confidentiality requirements. The Products are OpenTech’s confidential information.
Customer may not assign, transfer, or delegate its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of OpenTech. If Customer relocates its business, Customer will notify OpenTech and pay the additional STC service fees applicable to its new location. If Customer sells the Products as a result of a change of control, it will remain responsible for all outstanding fees payable hereunder. All terms of this Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, assigns, and legal representatives.
OpenTech represents that while Customer has an active Lifetime Protection subscription the Products will operate materially in accordance with the specifications published by OpenTech and any hardware components of the Products that require replacement, will be refurbished, repaired or replaced at no additional charge to Customer (the “Warranty”). If the Products do not meet the Warranty, OpenTech’s sole responsibility, and Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, will be for OpenTech to use commercially reasonable efforts consistent with industry standards to cure the defect. The Warranty shall terminate if Customer’s Lifetime Protection subscription lapses or if Customer changes or modifies the Products, except as directed by OpenTech. The Warranty includes lightning and transient currents, but does not include service, replacement, repair, or damage to the Products resulting from vandalism, accident, negligence, disaster, misuse, abuse, or alteration of or with respect to the Products and does not include other extraneous causes, including unavailability of components, labor difficulties, war, riot, acts of God, export control regulations, laws, judgments, or government instructions.

CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS, ACKNOWLEDGES, AND AGREES THAT WITHOUT LIFETIME PROTECTION THE PRODUCTS WILL NOT FUNCTION. The fee for annual Lifetime Protection is invoiced by email monthly in advance of the service period; if Customer requires that the invoice be sent by USPS then a $5 service fee will be added to each invoice. The first payment will be due at the beginning of the first full month following the completion of the STC service. OpenTech may terminate this Agreement if Customer has an outstanding balance for more than 30 days. If Lifetime Protection is terminated and Customer desires to reinstate it, Customer must pay the fees to bring Customer current for the period Lifetime Protection was not provided and any additional fees as determined by OpenTech due to the condition of the Hardware.
