In addition, the HERE Websites, including the Mobility Business Portal, may be unavailable during certain periods of time while they are being updated and modified. During this time, the HERE Websites will be temporarily unavailable.

During the Term and for a period of one (1) year thereafter, Partner shall maintain accurate and complete records sufficient to verify: (i) Partner’s use of the Mobility Products and its compliance with the Agreement, including but not limited to, Partner’s practices and procedures relating to the delivery, quality, security, and operational aspects of the Mobility Products, and (ii) the accuracy of payments made hereunder including, without limitation, the information contained in each Partner Report. HERE, at its expense and no more than twice per calendar year (unless required by law or a regulatory agency with jurisdiction over HERE), shall be entitled to retain a reputable, independent certified public accounting firm (“Auditor”) solely for the purpose of examining and auditing such records for such purpose, at a mutually agreed upon time during normal business hours. HERE shall limit any such audit to only those records of Partner that are reasonably necessary to audit the Partner for the purposes set forth in this Section 5. Prior to an audit, Partner may require the Auditor to sign a confidentiality agreement reasonably acceptable to it. The results of the audit and all information reviewed during such audit shall be deemed Partner’s Confidential Information. Such audit shall be conducted in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards.

The Agreement and all business, technical, operational, financial or otherwise proprietary information provided by one party to the other shall be treated as confidential information (“Confidential Information”). The party receiving Confidential Information shall not disclose it to any third party, excluding the receiving party’s employees, or its Affiliates’ employees, and then only on a need-to-know basis and only if such employees or its Affiliates’ employees are bound by written confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those contained herein. The party receiving Confidential Information shall keep it confidential using the same degree of care used to protect its own confidential information, and in no event less than a reasonable degree of care. Upon termination of the Agreement or upon request of disclosing party, the party receiving Confidential Information will return, delete or destroy (and certify such destruction if so requested) all of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information, including all documents and media containing such Confidential Information, and all copies or extracts thereof. The receiving party shall not have any duty to maintain in confidence any information that: (a) is publicly available without restriction through no fault of the receiving party or its employees, Affiliates or agents; (b) is received without restriction from a third party lawfully in possession of such information and lawfully empowered to disclose such information, as evidenced by written documentation; (c) was rightfully in the possession of the receiving party without restriction prior to its disclosure by disclosing party, as evidenced by written documentation; or (d) was independently developed by receiving party’s employees or consultants without access to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information, as evidenced by written documentation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the receiving party may disclose Confidential Information if required by law, or by order of a court of competent jurisdiction, provided that (to the extent permitted by law) the receiving party provides to the disclosing party promptly a written notice of such requirement sufficient to allow the disclosing party to seek a protective order. If such order is not given, the receiving party shall only disclose that portion of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information that its counsel advises is legally required to be disclosed. The duty to protect Confidential Information shall expire three (3) years from the date of termination of the Agreement.

11.4 Survival. All the provisions that by their nature need to survive termination of the Agreement and any accrued rights related to payments shall survive such termination. The termination of the Agreement, in part or in whole, shall not limit either party from pursuing other remedies available to it, nor shall either party be relieved of its obligation to pay any fees that are due and owing under the Agreement through the effective date of termination, unless otherwise stated herein. Neither party shall be liable to the other for any damages resulting solely from termination as permitted herein.
12.2 Amendments. HERE may modify the Agreement at any time with or without notice to Partner; provided, however, that any modification that may have material impact on Partner, shall only be made subject to the parties’ mutual written consent.
12.3 Waiver. Waiver of any right arising from any breach will not be deemed to be a waiver or authorization of any other breach or of any other right arising under the Agreement.
12.4 Severability. If any provision of the Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions hereof shall be unaffected thereby and remain valid and enforceable as if such provision had not been set forth herein. The parties agree to substitute for such provision a valid provision that most closely approximates the intent of such severed provision.
12.5 Governing Law. The Agreement shall be construed and governed by the substantive laws of (i) The Netherlands if HERE Europe B.V. is the HERE contracting party, or (ii) the State of Illinois (USA) if HERE North America LLC is the HERE contracting party, in either case without giving effect to the conflict of laws provisions. The United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to the Agreement. If there is a dispute between the parties as to matters covered by the Agreement or the validity, enforceability or interpretation thereof, then (a) if Dutch law applies, the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Amsterdam; or (b) if Illinois law applies, the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Illinois State courts in Chicago and U.S. federal courts in the District of Illinois. The provisions of this section shall not prevent either party from seeking immediate injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
12.6 Export Control. Partner acknowledges that Mobility Products and any services related to them may be subject to export control restrictions of various countries. Partner shall fully comply with all applicable export license restrictions and requirements as well as with all laws and regulations relating to the importation of Mobility Products or services related to them and shall procure all necessary governmental authorizations, including without limitation, all necessary licenses, approvals, permissions or consents, where necessary for the re-exportation.
12.7 Assignment. The rights and obligations of each party under the Agreement may not be transferred or assigned directly or indirectly without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, except that HERE may assign the Agreement to a parent, subsidiary, or any other affiliates or to an entity that acquires substantially all of its stock, assets, or business. For purposes of this Section, a change in control of Partner shall be regarded as an assignment.
