9.              TELECOMMUNICATIONS CARRIERS AND GPS

9.1           The Client acknowledges that communication services used in the provision of the Service are provided by third parties and the Client specifically acknowledges and agrees to the following:

(a)            Client acknowledges that the Service may be temporarily refused, interrupted, curtailed or limited because of atmospheric, terrain, or other natural or artificial conditions and may be temporarily interrupted or curtailed due to usage concentrations, modifications, upgrades, relocation and repairs of the transmission networks. Client agrees that FC shall not be responsible for such interruptions of Service or the inability to use the Service.

(c)            There must be a relatively clear “line of sight” between the GPS antenna and four (4) or more satellites. Objects, such as buildings, overpasses, and other obstructions (such as parking in garages or underground structures) that shield the antenna from a satellite can potentially weaken a satellite’s signal such that it becomes too difficult to ensure reliable and/or accurate positioning. These difficulties are particularly prevalent in densely urban areas.

FC shall have sole control of the settlement or defense of all infringement claims.

10.3         Exceptions. FC shall not be responsible for indemnifying Client to the extent that the infringement claim liability results from: (i) compliance with Client’s designs, specifications, or written instructions as requested and provided by Client to FC; (ii) modification by Client of the Software if such infringement would have been avoided but for such modification; (iii) the combination of Software or Service with equipment or software not authorized or provided by FC or otherwise approved by FC in the Documentation, if such infringement would have been avoided but for such combination; or (iv) the failure by Client to use an updated or current version of the Service provided by FC following notice by FC that the previous version of the Service infringes any third party intellectual property right.

10.4          Other Remedies. Without limiting the provisions of Section 10.1 above, and in addition thereto, when notified of an action or motion that seeks to restrict the exercise of any of the rights granted herein, FC may, (and in the case of a judgment, order or injunction that restricts the exercise of any of the rights granted herein, shall), in good faith, at its option and expense: (a) obtain the right for Client to exercise their rights in accordance with this EULA; (b) substitute other non-infringing software with equivalent functional capabilities; (c) modify the Service while retaining equivalent functional capabilities, so that it no longer infringes; or (d) if none of the foregoing are commercially feasible, as determined by FC in its sole discretion, terminate the license(s) for such Service and refund to Client that portion of any prepaid f fees that are applicable to the period following the termination of the license pursuant to this Section 10.4.
