8.1. By 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).

10.2. SchoolDigger’s 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.
10.3. Developer 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 Termination.
11.1. Term – 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.

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 Order.
11.3. Termination 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.

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.

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.
