harassing, or racially or ethnically discriminatory; and
6.6. The Developer
Application is not an incentive-based web site, such as a lottery or
sweepstakes site which rewards End Users for clicking on links.
Developer acknowledges, covenants and agrees that:
7.1. Access to the SchoolDigger
API and other SchoolDigger Materials will be solely through the Developer
Application and displayed only to End Users. The SchoolDigger API results will
not be permitted or facilitated through any other web site or means, whether
under Developer’s ownership and control or otherwise. No sub-licensing,
re-packaging, or other use (including “service bureau” use) is permitted.
7.2. Each Developer
Application must (i) represent a significant value enhancement to the
SchoolDigger Materials, (ii) in comparison with the SchoolDigger Materials,
constitute the predominance of the functionality offered to End Users, (iii)
not expose or, directly or indirectly, pass through any APIs to the SchoolDigger

that exception, Developer has no rights to, and Developer will not copy, store
or archive, or display or distribute to any third party (other than to End
Users as specified in this Agreement) any SchoolDigger Databases or portions
thereof. Developer agrees that any cached portions of the SchoolDigger Databases
will be used by Developer only for the purpose of populating the Developer

suggest that SchoolDigger promotes or endorses Developer or any third party or
the causes, ideas, web sites, products or services of Developer or any third
SchoolDigger. If any third party makes any claim against Developer that, if
true, would constitute a non-conformance by SchoolDigger with SchoolDigger
Infringement Warranty (a “SchoolDigger Infringement”) then, upon
notification of such claim, SchoolDigger will, at its sole cost and expense,
defend Developer against such claim and any related proceeding brought by such
third party against Developer. Upon the occurrence of a “Determination Against
SchoolDigger” (defined below), SchoolDigger will indemnify Developer from and
against any and all losses, damages, costs and expenses (including taxes, fees,
fines, penalties, and interest) reasonably and actually incurred by Developer
and resulting from the SchoolDigger Infringement. SchoolDigger’s obligations
under this Section 8.1 are subject to Developer’s compliance with the
“Indemnification Conditions” (defined below).
“Determination Against SchoolDigger” means a
determination by the tribunal conducting the proceeding that a SchoolDigger
Infringement occurred, the issuance of an interim order by any such tribunal
restricting or prohibiting Developer’s use of the SchoolDigger Materials as a
result of an alleged SchoolDigger Infringement, or consummation of a settlement
between SchoolDigger and the third party in which SchoolDigger agrees to pay
compensation to the third party for a SchoolDigger Infringement.
Conditions” means the following obligations of a party entitled to defense
and/or indemnification under this Agreement: (i) the indemnified party notifies
the indemnifying party in writing of any claim that might be the subject of
indemnification promptly after any executive officer of the indemnified party
or member of the indemnified party’s legal department first knows of the claim,
provided, however, that no failure to so notify an indemnifying party will
relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Agreement except
to the extent that such failure materially prejudices defense of the claim, and
except to the extent of damages incurred by the indemnifying party as a result
of the delay; (ii) the indemnifying party is given primary control over the
defense and settlement of the claim (subject to the foregoing, the indemnified party
may nonetheless participate in the defense at its sole cost and expense); (iii)
the indemnified party makes no admission of liability (except as required by
applicable law) nor enters into any settlement without the indemnifying party’s
prior written agreement; (iv) the indemnified party provides such assistance in
defense of the proceeding as the indemnifying party may reasonably request, at
the indemnifying party’s reasonable expense; and (v) the indemnified party
complies with any court order or reasonable settlement made in connection with
Mitigation Rights. If use of any SchoolDigger Materials is, or in
SchoolDigger’s reasonable opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim
of infringement of any Intellectual Property Right of any third party, then
SchoolDigger may: (i) procure the continuing right for Developer to use the
SchoolDigger Materials; (ii) replace or modify the SchoolDigger Materials in a
functionally equivalent manner so that it no longer infringes; or (iii) if the
rights under (i) and (ii) above are not available on terms that are
commercially reasonable for SchoolDigger, terminate the applicable Order
insofar as it applies to the infringing SchoolDigger Materials and refund to
Developer a pro-rata amount of any prepaid Fees applicable to the unutilized
portion of the License Term for the terminated portion of the Order.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, SchoolDigger will have no obligation under this
Section 8 or otherwise with respect to any infringement or misappropriation
claim to the extent based upon (a) any use of the SchoolDigger Materials not in
accordance with this Agreement or the Documentation, (b) any use of the
SchoolDigger Materials in combination with other products, software, services
or data not supplied by SchoolDigger to the extent the infringement would not
have occurred but for such combination, (c) any use of any release of the
SchoolDigger Materials other than the most current release made available to
Developer after notice from SchoolDigger that Developer must upgrade to such
release to avoid an infringement or misappropriation claim and Developer has
had a reasonable time (not to exceed 15 days) in which to implement the
upgrade, (d) any open source software forming part of the SchoolDigger Materials,
(e) any modification of the SchoolDigger Materials not made by SchoolDigger or
at its express direction, or (f) any data not provided by SchoolDigger.
8.4. By Developer.
Developer will defend, indemnify and hold SchoolDigger and its members,
managers, officers, employees, agents, representatives, successors and assigns,
harmless from and against any and all losses, costs, claims, liabilities,
damages, fines, penalties, suits, actions or expenses (including reasonable
attorneys’ fees) arising from or in connection with (i) any breach of Developer’s
representations, warranties or covenants, or its performance or failure to
perform any of its obligations under this Agreement, (ii) the use by Developer
of the SchoolDigger Materials (other than any such claim that any of the SchoolDigger
Materials violate the intellectual property rights of a third party), or (iii)
the Developer Application. SchoolDigger will comply with the Indemnification
of Implied Warranties.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY WARRANTED IN THIS AGREEMENT, EACH PARTY
EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE, WHETHER
EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE,
NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. For
clarity, SchoolDigger makes no representation or warranty that the operation of
the SchoolDigger API, the SchoolDigger Website, or the SchoolDigger Databases
will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that the SchoolDigger Databases are or
will be complete, accurate or error-free. SchoolDigger will not be liable for
the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
10. Exclusion of
Consequential Damages; Limitation of Liability.
NO EVENT WILL SCHOOLDIGGER BE LIABLE TO DEVELOPER, ITS END USERS, OR TO ANY
THIRD PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR
EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR UNFORESEEABLE (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR
LOSS OF DATA, GOODWILL, PROFITS, INVESTMENTS, USE OF MONEY OR USE OF
FACILITIES; INTERRUPTION IN USE OR AVAILABILITY OF DATA; STOPPAGE OF OTHER WORK
OR IMPAIRMENT OF OTHER ASSETS), EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF (i) THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THIS
AGREEMENT OR DATA, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PROVIDED HEREUNDER, OR (ii) ANY CLAIM,
CAUSE OF ACTION, BREACH OF CONTRACT OR ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, UNDER
THIS AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE, MISREPRESENTATION, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY,
OR OTHER TORT.
entire liability arising out of this Agreement will in no event exceed the fees
paid by Developer to SchoolDigger under the Order giving rise to the claim
during the one month period immediately preceding Developer’s first assertion
of any claim against SchoolDigger, regardless of whether any action or claim is
based in contract, misrepresentation, warranty, indemnity, negligence, strict
liability or other tort or otherwise.
agrees that the exclusions and limitations specified in this Agreement apply even
if the remedies are insufficient to cover all of Developer’s losses or damages,
or fail of their essential purpose and that without these limitations the fees
for access to and use of the SchoolDigger APIs and SchoolDigger Materials would
be significantly higher.
11. Term and
– Orders. The License Term for each Order will commence on the date the Order
is processed and accepted by SchoolDigger and will continue until expiration of
the License Term specified in the Order, unless sooner terminated in accordance
with this Agreement.
Termination For Convenience. Developer may terminate any Order for
convenience following expiration of all minimum terms specified in the Order.
If Developer terminates any Order under this Section 11.2, Developer will not
be entitled to any refund of or relief from fees paid or payable under such
for Cause. If either party materially breaches any of its obligations under
this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days from the
date it receives from the non-breaching party a notice of the breach and a
demand for cure, then the non-breaching party may thereafter terminate all or
any affected Orders or Licenses immediately on notice. Without limiting the
foregoing, Developer’s failure to pay fees and expenses owed by Developer to
SchoolDigger within five (5) days of their due date, and Developer’s
non-conformance with any of its representations, warranties and covenants under
this Agreement, will each constitute a material breach of the applicable Order
or License. If Developer has not cured a material breach within the applicable
cure period then, until Developer has cured the breach in full, SchoolDigger
may, in its sole discretion, and without prejudice to its other rights
following material breach and failure to cure, do any or all of the following:
(i) suspend performance of some or all of SchoolDigger’s obligations under the
applicable Order; (ii) suspend the Licenses granted pursuant to the applicable
Order; and (iii) deactivate any API Keys issued to Developer. Notice of
termination for any Order will not be interpreted to be notice of termination
for any other Order.
on Termination. Upon any termination or expiration of a License, Developer
will destroy all copies of the affected SchoolDigger Materials within its
custody or control within twenty (20) days of such termination. Developer will
certify such destruction to SchoolDigger upon request.
of Termination. No expiration or termination of this Agreement or of any
Order will relieve Developer of its obligation to pay any amounts accruing
under such Order prior to such expiration or termination.
The provisions of Sections 1, 3.2-3.4, 6-10, 11.4-11.6 and 12-13 of this
Agreement, will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Law. This Agreement will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with
the internal laws of the State of Washington, and, where such laws are
preempted by the laws of the United States, by the internal laws of the United
States, in each case without regard to (a) conflicts of laws principles, and
(b) the applicability, if any, of the United Nations Convention on Contracts
for the International Sale of Goods.
and Jurisdiction. In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of
or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or interpretation thereof, the
parties will submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the State
courts of Washington located in Seattle, Washington, or the Federal District
Court for the Western District of Washington, and appeal courts therefrom. Each
party hereby waives all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non
conveniens. Process may be served on either party in the manner authorized by
applicable law or court rule.
Expenses. If any proceeding is brought by either party to enforce or
interpret any term or provision of this Agreement, the substantially prevailing
party in such proceeding will be entitled to recover, in addition to all other
relief arising out of this Agreement, such party's reasonable attorneys' and
other experts' (including without limitation accountants) fees and expenses.
References. Provided that SchoolDigger complies with any trademark usage
requirements notified to it by Developer, SchoolDigger may refer to Developer
as one of SchoolDigger's Developers and use Developer's logo as part of such
Relief. Each of Developer and SchoolDigger acknowledges that damages will
be an inadequate remedy if the other violates the terms of this Agreement
pertaining to protection of Intellectual Property Rights. Accordingly, each of
them will have the right, in addition to any other rights each of them may
have, to obtain in any court of competent jurisdiction, temporary, preliminary
and permanent injunctive relief to restrain any breach, threatened breach, or
otherwise to specifically enforce any of the related rights and obligations in
Majeure. If the performance of this Agreement is adversely restricted or if
either party is unable to conform to any warranty by reason of any circumstances
beyond the reasonable control and without the fault or negligence of the party
affected, then, except with respect to obligations to pay Fees, the party
affected, upon giving prompt written notice to the other party, will be excused
from such performance on a day-to-day basis to the extent of such restriction
(and the other party will likewise be excused from performance of its
obligations on a day-to-day basis to the extent such party's obligations relate
to the performance so restricted); provided, however, that the party so
affected will use all commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or remove such
causes of non-performance and both parties will proceed whenever such causes
are removed or cease.
and Headings. The captions and headings are inserted in this Agreement for
convenience only, and will not be deemed to limit or describe the scope or
intent of any provision of this Agreement.
Invalidity. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, such
invalidity will not render invalid the remainder of this Agreement or the
remainder of which such invalid provision is a part. If any provision of this
Agreement is so broad as to be held unenforceable, such provision will be
interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable.
No waiver of or with respect to any provision of this Agreement, nor consent by
a party to the breach of or departure from any provision of this Agreement,
will in any event be binding on or effective against such party unless it be in
writing and signed by such party, and then such waiver will be effective only
in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given.
Party Beneficiaries. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, no
provisions of this Agreement are intended nor will be interpreted to provide or
create any third party beneficiary rights or any other rights of any kind in
any other party; provided, however, that SchoolDigger's suppliers of products
and services delivered hereunder will enjoy the same disclaimers of warranty,
limitations on liability and similar exculpatory provisions with respect to
such products and services as does SchoolDigger.
Neither party may assign any of its rights under this Agreement without the
prior written consent of the other, which will not be unreasonably withheld;
provided, however, that either party may, without the other party’s consent,
and upon notice to the other party, assign its rights under this Agreement to
any entity into or with which it is merged, or that acquires all or
substantially all of its assets. Subject to the foregoing restriction on
assignment, this Agreement will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be
enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
SchoolDigger may assign all or any of its rights to enforce this Agreement to
any licensor of SchoolDigger.
