    5.5 Authorized Users and Authentication Credentials. Licensee's access to the Licensed Application may be dependent upon a security access system that requires each Authorized User to use one or more Authentication Credentials.

Licensee further agrees to immediately notify Fannie Mae and take immediate steps to disable a previously issued Authentication Credential if (a) an Authorized User ceases to be an Authorized User for any reason, including as a result of such User no longer being employed, retained or used by Licensee, or (b) in the event of any loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of any Authentication Credential. Authentication Credentials shall not be transferred between or among Authorized Users or other individuals or systems, and Licensee shall implement all necessary and appropriate measures to ensure that (i) such transfers do not occur, and (ii) these and all other requirements of this Section 5.5 (including its subsections) are met, including, without limitation, apprising its employees and Independent Contractors with a need to know of the requirements of this Section. Fannie Mae may make available functionality such that Licensee is able to review the systems access available to each of its Authorized Users. To the extent such functionality is available, Licensee shall periodically review the appropriateness of such access and, where a discrepancy is identified, immediately take all measures necessary to correct the discrepancy, including without limitation providing notice to Fannie Mae.. Fannie Mae shall be under no obligation to provide access to the Licensed Application to any Authorized User, and expressly reserves the right at any time and from time to time to change and/or revoke Authentication Credentials. Licensee agrees that it shall periodically revoke and/or reset Authentication Credentials as and to the extent prescribed by Fannie Mae, but in no event less than: (A) every ninety calendar days for individuals, (B) annually for systems and (C) notwithstanding (A), annually for Authentication Credentials issued by a third party.

Without limiting the foregoing, Licensee shall implement reasonable procedures to prevent unauthorized persons or systems from gaining access to any Documentation or to the Licensed Application through Licensee's systems or via an Authentication Credential of any of its Authorized Users. Such procedures shall include, but are not limited to, secure transmission of Nonpublic Personal Information and other confidential material, utilizing industry-standard virus checking programs designed to prevent the transmission and receipt of viruses and other destructive code, implementing appropriate disaster recovery and back-up procedures, and implementing appropriate procedures to prevent disclosure of data and other materials to a party other than the intended recipient.

Licensee shall not transmit to Fannie Mae's systems any materials that contain bugs, viruses, worms or other functions, routines, devices or instructions which may create any unauthorized access or damage to, or interruption in the functioning of, the Licensed Application or Fannie Mae's systems. Fannie Mae shall have the right to remove any material, the content of which Fannie Mae deems to be in violation of law or any term or condition of the Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Fannie Mae shall have no obligation to remove, screen, police, edit or monitor any data or other material generated by Licensee or its employees, agents, contractors, representatives, customers or affiliates.

Licensee agrees to provide Fannie Mae with data, documentation or other such evidence of Performance Incident(s) that it experiences during the term of the Agreement promptly upon becoming aware of such Performance Incident(s). Fannie Mae shall have the right, upon reasonable notice to Licensee, to audit Licensee's use of the Licensed Materials (by means of remote access or through entry to Licensee's premises), and Licensee agrees to allow Fannie Mae or its representatives access to such systems (including loan origination and other systems), facilities, books and records as are reasonably required to audit Licensee's compliance with the Agreement.
 
    5.9 Compliance With Law. Licensee acknowledges that its activities, whether or not the Licensed Application is utilized in connection with such activities, may subject Licensee to certain federal and state substantive and disclosure laws and regulations including, without limitation, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, the Truth-in-Lending Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and their implementing regulations and commentary, as applicable. Licensee hereby represents and warrants that it has obtained legal counsel and developed policies, systems and procedures that ensure its full compliance with (a) all federal, state and local laws, rules, and regulations applicable to its activities in connection with which the Licensed Application, and any data generated by, submitted to or evaluated utilizing the Licensed Application, is used, and (b) all applicable laws, rules, regulations and conventions relating to data privacy, data security, international communications, communications decency and the importation and exportation of software and data. Licensee bears sole responsibility for complying with such laws, rules, regulations and conventions. Such compliance obligations shall in no event be considered imposed upon or shared by Fannie Mae or its Third-Party Licensors by virtue of Licensee's use of the Licensed Application.

The Agreement constitutes the "written agreement" of Licensee and Licensee shall continuously maintain all components of such "written agreement" as an official record of Licensee or of any successor thereto.
 
    5.12 Integration. Licensee may choose to develop, implement, use and/or support one or more interfaces that will transfer data electronically between a mortgage-related system, such as a loan origination or servicing system, and a Licensed Application that is designed to allow integration. Licensee understands and agrees that errors and deficiencies in the performance of the Licensed Application, including without limitation accuracy of results, may result from failure to maintain such an interface in good working order and compatible with the most current version of the Licensed Application and Fannie Mae bears no responsibility for such errors and deficiencies.

In the event that Licensee develops and/or supports an interface in a production environment, the following terms will apply:

  • Licensee agrees to maintain the interface in good working order and, along with the mortgage-related system, at all times compatible with the most current version of the Licensed Application,

Invoices will be submitted in either electronic or hardcopy format, at Fannie Mae's discretion. Payment is due upon receipt of invoice. Accounts not paid within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice shall be deemed delinquent and in material breach of the Agreement. Delinquent accounts are subject to late charges at a variable annual rate that is three (3) percentage points above the prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal, or at the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less, commencing on the due date of the invoice, plus all costs of collection, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees. Fannie Mae reserves the right to take such actions as are permitted hereunder, including without limitation termination of the Agreement or suspension of Licensee's access to any and all Licensed Materials, if Licensee's account is delinquent or Licensee has otherwise breached its obligations under this Section 7.
 
  8. Confidentiality of Proprietary Information.
 
    8.1 Protection. For purposes of this Section, all Proprietary Information disclosed by one party to the other in the course of performing under the Agreement or to which the other gains access in connection with the Agreement shall be deemed to be the property of the disclosing party, or the appropriate Third-Party Licensor (or other third-party owner), as the case may be. The receiving party agrees to (a) receive such Proprietary Information in confidence, (b) use reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of such Proprietary Information and not disclose such Proprietary Information to third parties (except for: (i) the receiving party's representatives, agents and contractors who have a need to know, are under a duty of non-disclosure with respect to such information, and are acting for the sole benefit of the receiving party and (ii) the receiving party's regulator, upon request by such regulator and subject to the receiving party's formal request that such information be treated in confidence), which efforts shall accord such Proprietary Information at least the same level of protection against unauthorized use and disclosure that the receiving party customarily accords to its own information of a similar nature, but in no event less than a commercially reasonable level of protection, (c) use or permit the use of such Proprietary Information solely in accordance with the Agreement, and (d) promptly notify the disclosing party in writing of any actual or suspected loss or unauthorized use, disclosure or access of the disclosing party's Proprietary Information of which it becomes aware. The Agreement (as well as all information regarding the negotiation of the Agreement) shall be deemed to be the Proprietary Information of both parties. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Licensed Materials are the Proprietary Information of Fannie Mae and/or its Third-Party Licensors. For purposes of the Agreement, information shall be deemed to be disclosed by a party if such information is disclosed by any of its officers, employees, directors, contractors, agents or representatives. If Licensee is a government agency, Licensee agrees that it shall comply fully with the Trade Secrets Act (18 U.S.C. §1905) or other applicable law with regard to Fannie Mae's Proprietary Information. Each party agrees that it shall abide by and reproduce and include any restrictive legend or proprietary rights notice that appears in or on any Proprietary Information of the other party or any Third-Party Licensor (or other third-party owner) that it is authorized to reproduce. Each party also agrees that it shall not remove, alter, cover or distort any trademark, trade name, copyright or other proprietary rights notices, legends, symbols or labels appearing on or in any Proprietary Information of the other party or any Third-Party Licensor (or other third-party owner).
 
    8.2 Exclusions. The restrictions on use and disclosure set forth above shall not apply when, and to the extent that the Proprietary Information (a) is or becomes generally available to the public through no fault of the receiving party (or anyone acting on its behalf); (b) was previously rightfully known to the receiving party free of any obligation to keep it confidential; (c) is subsequently disclosed to the receiving party by a third party who may rightfully transfer and disclose such information without restriction and free of any obligation to keep it confidential; (d) is independently developed by the receiving party or a third party without reference to the disclosing party's Proprietary Information, (e) is used or disclosed as expressly permitted in writing by the disclosing party or (f) is required to be disclosed by the receiving party as a matter of law, provided that the receiving party uses all reasonable efforts to provide the disclosing party with at least ten (10) days' prior notice of such disclosure and the receiving party discloses only that portion of the Proprietary Information that is legally required to be furnished pursuant to the opinion of legal counsel of the receiving party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither party shall disclose, or permit the disclosure of, the Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party, except (i) as provided in Section 8.2(e) above, (ii) to the extent necessary to permit the exercise of its rights or the performance of its obligations under the Agreement, or (iii) to seek advice from its attorneys, accountants or other professional advisors.
 
  9. Publicity; Marks.
 
    9.1 Approval Procedure. Each party will submit to the other party for its prior approval, which approval may be withheld at such party's sole discretion, that portion of any press release, internet posting, marketing, advertising, promotional or similar materials referencing the other party and/or its Marks in connection with the Agreement (the "Marketing Materials"). Once approved, such Marketing Materials may be used until such approval is withdrawn pursuant to this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that statements of fact made in routine correspondence with specific customers shall not constitute "Marketing Materials." The rights granted in this Section may be withdrawn at any time by the granting party upon reasonable prior written notice.
 
    9.2 Ownership of Marks. Each party acknowledges and agrees that (a) the other party's Marks are and shall remain the sole property of the other party, (b) nothing in the Agreement shall confer in a party any right of ownership or license rights in the other party's Marks, and (c) neither party shall register the other party's Marks in any jurisdiction. In addition, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that (i) the Marks of Third-Party Licensors are and shall remain the sole property of such Third- Party Licensors, (ii) nothing in the Agreement shall confer in Licensee any right of ownership or license rights in the Marks of Third-Party Licensors, and (iii) Licensee shall not register the Marks of Third-Party Licensors. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee agrees not to use or adopt any trade name, trademark, logo or service mark which is so similar to Fannie Mae's Marks or the Marks of Third-Party Licensors as to be likely to cause deception or confusion, or which is graphically or phonetically similar to any of Fannie Mae's Marks or the Marks of Third-Party Licensors.
 
    9.3 Legend Requirement. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, when using the other party's Marks pursuant to the Agreement, a party shall take all reasonable measures required to protect the other party's rights in such Marks, including, but not limited to, the inclusion of a prominent legend identifying such Marks as the property of the other party.
 
  10. Warranty.
 
    10.1 Warranty and Limitation. Fannie Mae's sole warranty to Licensee is that the Licensed Application owned by Fannie Mae shall perform substantially in accordance with the current version of the Documentation for a period of sixty (60) days from the date the Licensed Application was first made available to Licensee (the "Warranty Period"). In the event such Licensed Application does not so perform during the Warranty Period, Licensee shall, prior to the expiration of the Warranty Period, notify Fannie Mae of the instance(s) of nonperformance in writing. Subject to the foregoing, Fannie Mae will (at its option) either resolve the instance(s) of nonperformance of such Licensed Application or terminate the applicable Schedule(s) and provide Licensee a refund of any Subscription Fees actually paid by Licensee for such Licensed Application for the month prior to its written notification to Fannie Mae. If requested by Fannie Mae, Licensee will return any components of the related Licensed Materials and any copies thereof in Licensee's possession.
 
    10.2 Disclaimer and Limitation on Remedy.

Neither Fannie Mae nor its Third-Party Licensors shall be responsible for the accurate or complete transmission of data or other materials. The warranty set forth in this Section shall not apply to any irregularities, errors, problems or defects arising from (i) modification of the Licensed Application by any party other than Fannie Mae or from accident, neglect, abuse, misuse or misapplication, (ii) failure of Licensee to provide a suitable installation and operating environment, including but not limited to, failure to use supplies, materials, software and hardware platforms that meet the specifications set forth in the Documentation, (iii) Licensee's incorporation, attachment or engagement of any attachment, feature, program or device to the Licensed Application, if the Licensed Application would have conformed to the warranty set forth in this Section but for such incorporation, attachment or engagement, (iv) use of the Licensed Application outside the scope of its intended purpose, as described in the Documentation, or (v) Licensee's failure to incorporate any update previously released by Fannie Mae that corrects such item. Fannie Mae reserves the right to (A) modify any Licensed Materials or substitute any materials contained therein so long as the new materials do not materially affect the functionality of the Licensed Application, and (B) discontinue the licensing and/or support of any Licensed Materials. THE WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 10 IS THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY GIVEN BY FANNIE MAE IN CONNECTION WITH THE LICENSED MATERIALS, ANY COMPONENT THEREOF, ANY RELATED SERVICES OR OTHERWISE UNDER THE AGREEMENT, AND THE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 10 SHALL BE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY. FANNIE MAE AND ITS THIRD-PARTY LICENSORS HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, AND ANY WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT. BETA, PILOT, AND/OR MARKET TEST VERSIONS OF THE LICENSED MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS."
 
  11. Limitation of Liability.
 
    11.1 EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO ANY BREACH OF SECTION 3 OR SECTION 8 OR ANY CLAIM UNDER SECTIONS 5.10 OR 12 HEREOF, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY, OR ANY THIRD-PARTY LICENSOR, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, PARTNERS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, REPRESENTATIVES, SUCCESSORS OR ASSIGNS, AS SUCH, BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANYONE CLAIMING UNDER OR THROUGH THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE AGREEMENT, THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR ANY RELATED SOFTWARE, SERVICES OR INFORMATION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, INTEREST, REVENUE, DATA OR USE, OR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, INCURRED BY THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER BASED UPON CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE, DUTY TO WARN AND STRICT LIABILITY), WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE GROUNDS, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY. IN ADDITION, FANNIE MAE AND ITS THIRD-PARTY LICENSORS, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, PARTNERS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, REPRESENTATIVES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS, AS SUCH, SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR LOSSES RESULTING FROM UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF (a) THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR ANY COMPONENT THEREOF, (b) FANNIE MAE PROPRIETARY INFORMATION OR (c) NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION BY LICENSEE OR THOSE GAINING ACCESS TO THE LICENSED MATERIALS, FANNIE MAE PROPRIETARY INFORMATION OR NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION AS A RESULT OF LICENSEE'S ACTS OR OMISSIONS.
 
    11.2 INDEPENDENT OF, SEVERABLE FROM, AND TO BE ENFORCED INDEPENDENTLY OF ANY OTHER ENFORCEABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE PROVISION OF THE AGREEMENT, AND EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO ANY BREACH OF SECTIONS 3, 7 OR 8 OR ANY CLAIM UNDER SECTIONS 5.10 OR 12 HEREOF, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF EITHER PARTY OR ITS THIRD-PARTY LICENSORS (OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, PARTNERS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, REPRESENTATIVES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS, AS SUCH), TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY CLAIMING UNDER OR THROUGH THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CAUSES OF ACTION AND CLAIMS BASED UPON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, DUTY TO WARN AND STRICT LIABILITY), BREACH OF WARRANTY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE GROUNDS, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE AGREEMENT, THE LICENSED MATERIALS, ANY COMPONENT THEREOF OR ANY RELATED SOFTWARE, SERVICES, OR INFORMATION, EXCEED THE GREATER OF $25,000 OR THE TOTAL SUBSCRIPTION FEES RECEIVED BY FANNIE MAE FROM LICENSEE UNDER THE RELEVANT SCHEDULE DURING THE CONSECUTIVE TWELVE-MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE OCCURRENCE OF THE FIRST SUCH EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY.
 
    11.3 FANNIE MAE AND LICENSEE EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS CONTAINED HEREIN (a) REPRESENT THE PARTIES' AGREEMENT AS TO THE ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN THE PARTIES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE POSSIBILITY THAT A REMEDY MAY FAIL OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE AND CAUSE CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS) AND THAT THE AMOUNTS PAYABLE TO FANNIE MAE PURSUANT TO THE AGREEMENT REFLECT SUCH ALLOCATION OF RISK, WITHOUT WHICH NEITHER PARTY WOULD HAVE BEEN WILLING TO ENTER INTO THE AGREEMENT, AND (b) FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
 
  12. Intellectual Property Indemnity.
 
    12.1 Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 11 hereof, Fannie Mae shall indemnify and hold harmless Licensee and its affiliates, partners, officers, employees, directors, agents, contractors, representatives, successors and assigns, as such, from and against any Losses which arise out of or result from any third-party claim that Fannie Mae does not have sufficient right, title or interest in the Licensed Materials to enter into the Agreement or that the Licensed Materials owned by Fannie Mae infringe a United States (a) patent in existence on the date of access, (b) copyright, (c) trademark, (d) trade secret, or (e) other United States intellectual property right of any third party.
 
    12.2 In the event that any such claim is made, or in Fannie Mae's opinion is likely to be made, Fannie Mae reserves the right, in its sole discretion, as applicable, (a) to procure for Licensee the right to continue to access and use the Licensed Application and/or the Documentation, (b) to replace the Licensed Application and/or the Documentation to avoid infringement, (c) to modify the Licensed Application and/or the Documentation to avoid infringement, or (d) to terminate the relevant license(s) and Schedule(s) without further cost, charge, liability or penalty to Fannie Mae relating to such termination.
 
    12.3 Fannie Mae and its Third-Party Licensors shall have no obligation to the extent that any claim of infringement is based upon Licensee's (a) access or use of the Licensed Application or the Documentation in violation of the Agreement, (b) integration, modification or marking of the Licensed Application or the Documentation, or any portion thereof, where, in the absence of such integration, modification or marking, the Licensed Application or Documentation would not be infringing (unless such integration, modification or marking has been specifically authorized in writing by Fannie Mae), (c) use of the Licensed Application or the Documentation in combination with other software, documentation, hardware or data, if use without such software, documentation, hardware or data would not be infringing, (d) use of a superseded version of the Licensed Application or the Documentation if infringement could have been avoided by the use of the current version provided by Fannie Mae, (e) use of the Licensed Application or the Documentation in practicing any infringing process, (f) use of the Licensed Application in a manner for which it was not designed, (g) activities after Fannie Mae has notified Licensee that Fannie Mae believes such activities may result in such infringement, (h) designs, specifications or instructions, or (i) use of any marks, including without limitation Fannie Mae's Marks, in violation of Section 9.1.
 
    12.4 THE PROVISIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 12 SHALL BE LICENSEE'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AND FANNIE MAE'S SOLE LIABILITIES AND OBLIGATIONS FOR ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT AGAINST LICENSEE BASED UPON INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT, WHETHER UPON THE THEORY OF WARRANTY, INDEMNITY OR OTHERWISE.
 
  13. Indemnification Procedures and Subrogation.
 
    13.1 Procedures. Promptly after receipt by any person or entity entitled to indemnification under the Agreement (the "Indemnified Party") of notice of a claim, or of the commencement (or threatened commencement) of any civil, criminal, administrative or investigative action or proceeding involving a claim, in respect of which the Indemnified Party will seek indemnification pursuant to the Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall promptly notify the party that is obligated to provide such indemnification (the "Indemnifying Party") of such claim in writing. No failure to so notify the Indemnifying Party shall relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations under the Agreement except to the extent that it can demonstrate damages or prejudice attributable to such failure. Except as provided in Section 13.2, the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to have sole control over the response to, defense and settlement of such claim, provided that, within fifteen (15) days after receipt of such written notice, the Indemnifying Party notifies the Indemnified Party of its election to so assume full control. In the event the Indemnifying Party does elect to so assume control, (a) the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to participate in the response to such claim and to employ counsel at its own expense to assist in the handling of such claim, (b) the Indemnifying Party shall obtain the prior written approval of the Indemnified Party (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) before entering into any settlement of such claim or ceasing to defend against such claim if such settlement or cessation would cause injunctive relief to be imposed against the Indemnified Party, and (c) the Indemnifying Party shall promptly reimburse the Indemnified Party for any legal expenses reasonably incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense of such claim prior to the Indemnified Party's receipt of the Indemnifying Party's notice of its election to assume full control over the response to such claim. After notice by the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party of its election to assume full control, the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable to the Indemnified Party for any further legal expenses incurred by such Indemnified Party in connection with the defense of that claim. If the Indemnifying Party does not assume sole control over the response to such claim as provided in this Section, the Indemnifying Party may participate in such response and the Indemnified Party shall have the right to respond to and defend the claim in such manner as it may deem appropriate, at the reasonable cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, who shall be bound by any settlement. The Indemnifying Party shall promptly reimburse the Indemnified Party for such costs and expenses.
 
    13.2 Exclusion. Notwithstanding anything set forth in Section 13.1 to the contrary, in the event an Indemnified Party reasonably believes and so notifies the Indemnifying Party in writing that the applicable claim, even if fully indemnified for, is reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Indemnified Party, then the Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to control the response to, defense and settlement of such claim, but shall have the right to employ separate counsel at its own expense to assist in the handling of such claim by the Indemnified Party. In such an event, (a) the Indemnified Party and its counsel shall consult, wherever reasonably practicable, with the Indemnifying Party and its counsel with respect to the status of the claim and any related litigation or proceedings, and (b) the Indemnified Party shall bear the expense of its counsel.
 
    13.3 Settlement. Where an Indemnifying Party has been given notice of a claim and assumed its responsibility to defend with respect thereto, the Indemnifying Party shall not be required to indemnify an Indemnified Party for any amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party in the settlement of any claim which was agreed to without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
 
    13.4 Subrogation. In the event that an Indemnifying Party shall be obligated to indemnify an Indemnified Party pursuant to the Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall, upon payment of such indemnity in full, be subrogated to all rights of the Indemnified Party with respect to the claims and defenses to which such indemnification relates.
 
  14. Term and Termination.
 
    14.1 Term. The Agreement will remain in full force and effect until terminated as provided herein.
 
    14.2 Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate the Master Terms and/or any Schedule(s) upon thirty (30) days' prior written notice describing a material breach by the other party of any term or condition of the Master Terms or a Schedule, which breach has not been cured by the breaching party during such thirty (30) day notice period. Fannie Mae may terminate the Master Terms and/or any Schedule(s) or suspend Licensee's access to any Licensed Application, effective immediately, upon notice to Licensee in the event (a) of any material breach by Licensee of the provisions of Section 3.3, Sections 5.5 through 5.9 or Section 8, (b) Licensee attempts to cause or causes a Licensed Application or any related system to malfunction or suffer damage, or fails to take steps reasonably requested by Fannie Mae to correct a malfunction or damage, (c) Licensee becomes insolvent or enters into bankruptcy, suspension of payments, moratorium, reorganization, or any other proceeding that relates to insolvency or protection of creditor's rights (d) Licensee is a party to a Mortgage Selling and Servicing Contract with Fannie Mae that is suspended or terminated or (e) Fannie Mae no longer has sufficient rights in a Third-Party Application necessary to the functioning or operation of the Licensed Application.
 
    14.3 Termination for Convenience. Either party may terminate the Master Terms and/or any Schedule(s) without cause upon ninety (90) days' prior written notice to the other.
 
    14.4 Termination of Master Terms. All Schedules will terminate automatically without notice upon termination of the Master Terms.
 
    14.5 Survival. Neither party shall have any continuing obligations to the other upon the effective date of termination except that (a) Licensee shall pay Fannie Mae all Subscription Fees accrued and owing prior to the date of termination and any late charges relating thereto, and (b) any provisions of the Agreement that contemplate their continuing effectiveness, including, without limitation, Sections 3.5, 4, 5.2 through 5.7, 5.9, 5.10, 5.13, 7.2, 7.3, 8, 9, 10.2, 11, 12, 13, 14.5, 14.6 and 15, shall survive any termination of the Master Terms and/or a Schedule.
 
    14.6 Certain Licensee Termination Obligations. Upon termination of the Master Terms or any individual Schedule, Licensee shall be obligated to (a) return or destroy all copies of Proprietary Information received in connection with the relevant Schedule(s), (b) immediately cease accessing and using the applicable Licensed Materials, and (c) destroy all copies of the associated Documentation delivered (or made available) by Licensee that are the subject thereof. Upon request from Fannie Mae, Licensee shall provide Fannie Mae with prompt written certification of its compliance with the foregoing, executed by a duly authorized officer of Licensee.
 
  15. General Provisions.
 
    15.1 Assignment. The Agreement may not be assigned by Licensee to any other person(s), firm(s), corporation(s) or other entities (by operation of law or otherwise) without the prior express written consent of Fannie Mae, and any attempt to assign without such consent shall be void and shall be deemed to be a material breach of the Agreement.
 
    15.2 Default. A breach of any provision of the Agreement shall be deemed to also be a breach of any Mortgage Selling and Servicing Contract between Licensee and Fannie Mae.
 
    15.3 Notices. Unless otherwise specified in the Agreement, all notices, requests, demands, and other communications (other than routine operational or billing communications) required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing (with electronic mail or Fannie Mae postings to Fannie Mae internet sites deemed to be a "writing" for this purpose) and shall be deemed to have been received by a party (a) when actually received in the case of hand delivery against a signed receipt, (b) two (2) business days after being given to a reputable overnight courier with a reliable system for tracking delivery, (c) when sent by confirmed facsimile, (d) upon receipt, when mailed by United States mail, registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, (e) one (1) business day after transmission by electronic mail, or (f) upon posting by Fannie Mae to an applicable Fannie Mae internet site.

Except as provided in (f) above, any notice directed to Licensee shall be addressed to a Corporate Administrator at an address, electronic mail address and/or facsimile number provided to Fannie Mae by Licensee or other valid address, electronic mail address and/or facsimile number for such individual. A party may from time to time change an address, electronic mail address, or facsimile number for notification purposes by giving the other party prior written notice of the new address, electronic mail address or facsimile number. Any Licensee that is a party to a Fannie Mae Mortgage Selling and Servicing Contract shall also be deemed to have notice of any matter published in Fannie Mae's Selling and Servicing Guides and any bulletin, lender letter, announcement or other communication issued thereunder.
 
    15.4 Governing Law; Severability. The Agreement shall be governed by and construed solely and exclusively in accordance with the laws of the District of Columbia, without reference to or application of its conflicts of law principles. In the event that any provision of the Agreement conflicts with the law under which the Agreement is to be construed, or if any such provision is held invalid, void or unenforceable by a court with jurisdiction over the parties to the Agreement, such provision shall be deemed to be restated to reflect as nearly as possible the original intention of the parties in accordance with applicable law, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
 
    15.5 Force Majeure. Neither party shall be responsible for delays or failure of performance (other than the payment of money) resulting from acts beyond the reasonable control of such party. Such acts shall include, but not be limited to, acts of God, strikes, walkouts, riots, acts of war, epidemics, failure of vendors to perform, governmental regulations, power failures, earthquakes, or other disasters.
 
    15.6 Headings. The titles and headings of the various sections and paragraphs in the Agreement are intended solely for convenience of reference and are not intended to explain, modify or place any construction or limitation upon any of the provisions of the Agreement.
 
    15.7 Issued Bulletins; Amendments. Fannie Mae may issue hard-copy bulletins or electronic bulletins (via electronic mail or posted to an applicable Fannie Mae internet site), from time to time and in accordance with Section 15.3, amending the Agreement on a prospective basis, effective on the date specified by Fannie Mae in the bulletin. Each bulletin shall be issued at least twenty (20) days before its effective date, except for bulletins relating to software and other materials provided by Third-Party Licensors which may be issued at any time prior to their effective date. Licensee shall have the right to reject any bulletin by providing written notice to Fannie Mae within fifteen (15) days after receipt of such bulletin. In the event that Licensee rejects any bulletin, Fannie Mae shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement or any affected Schedule, effective either (a) as of the effective date of such bulletin, (b) upon receipt by Licensee of Fannie Mae's termination notice, or (c) upon the termination date set forth in Fannie Mae's termination notice, whichever is later. Unless Licensee provides such rejection notice within the aforementioned fifteen (15) day period, Licensee shall be deemed to have accepted such amendments and such amendments shall form part of the Agreement as of the effective date of such bulletin. Licensee's continued use of any affected Licensed Application shall be an acknowledgment of such acceptance. Otherwise, the terms of the Agreement may be amended solely by a writing expressly purporting to create an amendment or supplement to the Agreement and executed by a duly authorized representative of each party to be bound thereby. The Agreement may not be amended by any purchase order or other written instrument submitted by Licensee, whether or not formally rejected by Fannie Mae.
 
    15.8 Entire Agreement; Priority. EExcept as expressly provided in the Agreement, no representations or statements of any kind made by either party that are not expressly stated in the Agreement shall be binding on such party regarding the subject matter hereof. The parties agree that the Agreement shall constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between them regarding the subject matter of each Schedule (or, if no Schedule has been entered into, regarding the subject matter of the Master Terms), and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, proposals or agreements, oral or written, relating to the subject matter of the Agreement. In the event of a conflict, terms and/or conditions contained in the relevant Schedule shall take precedence over terms and/or conditions contained in the Master Terms, but only with respect to the subject matter of such Schedule. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Agreement supersedes and replaces any currently outstanding agreement(s) between Licensee and Fannie Mae that incorporate(s) Fannie Mae's "MORNETPlus Terms and Conditions," "MORNETPlus Software License and Subscription Agreement Terms and Conditions," "MortgageLinks Terms and Conditions," "MortgageLinks Software License and Subscription Agreement Terms and Conditions," or "Licensed Software Terms and Conditions." Without further action on the part of either party, any (a) schedules entered into pursuant to such agreement(s) shall be deemed to be Schedules incorporated into the Master Terms and (b) references in any Schedules, Rate Sheets and associated forms to "Licensed Software" shall be deemed to be references to "Licensed Application." In the event of a conflict between a term and/or condition of any Schedule described in the preceding Section 15.8(a) and the Master Terms, the term and/or condition contained in the Master Terms shall take precedence over the term and/or condition of such Schedule, but only with respect to the subject matter of such Schedule.
 
      In addition, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that Fannie Mae may, from time to time, provide Licensee with marketing materials and other information (including, but not limited to, press releases, internet postings, responses to written and telephonic inquiries, fact sheets, periodic reports, product support information and other customer communications materials) relating to the Licensed Materials and other products or services and that such materials or other information will not be deemed to (a) include any representation or warranty by Fannie Mae or its Third- Party Licensors unless such materials or information expressly provide that a particular statement is a representation or a warranty for purposes hereof, (b) form part of the Agreement unless such materials or information (or the Agreement) expressly provide otherwise, or (c) constitute an inducement for Licensee to enter into or extend the Agreement, in whole or in part.
 
    15.9 Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial. Any and all disputes between the parties that cannot be settled by mutual agreement shall be resolved solely and exclusively in the courts located within the District of Columbia, and Licensee hereby consents to the jurisdiction of such courts and irrevocably waives any objections thereto, including without limitation, on the basis of improper venue or forum non conveniens. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably waives any and all right to trial by jury in any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to the Agreement.
 
    15.10 Third-Party Beneficiaries. The parties acknowledge and agree that applicable Third-Party Licensors are intended beneficiaries of the Agreement and shall be entitled to rely upon and directly enforce the terms and conditions hereof. Except as provided in the foregoing sentence, nothing in the Agreement is intended to, or shall, create any third-party beneficiaries, whether intended or incidental, and neither party shall make any representations to the contrary.
 
    15.11 Restricted Rights. If Licensee is any unit or agency of the U.S. Government, then the following provision applies:
 
      U.S. GOVERNMENT RIGHTS
 
      Use, duplication, or disclosure by the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions set forth in the Agreement and as provided in DFARS 227.7202-1(a) and 227.7202-3(a) (2007), DFARS 252.227-7013(c)(1)(ii) (OCT 1988), FAR 12.212(a) (2005), FAR 52.227-19, or FAR 52.227-14 (ALT III), as applicable.

The Licensed Materials shall not be used by any national (citizen or lawful permanent resident) of "Country Group E," as that term is defined by the Export Administration Regulations, 15 C.F.R. 730 et. seq., nor shall Licensee take any steps to facilitate such use.

  4. Registration; End-Users and Sponsoring Lenders. Prior to using the Licensed Application, Licensee shall register with Fannie Mae and identify at least one Sponsoring Lender. Fannie Mae will issue a user identification number to each end-user, which user identification number may be changed from time to time pursuant to Fannie Mae's standard policies and procedures with respect thereto. Licensee shall make its end-users aware of and cause each end-user to comply with the terms of this Agreement and Schedule as they pertain to end-users' use of the Licensed Application.

Licensee shall, coterminous with this Schedule, maintain direct independent contractual agreement(s) with any "consumer reporting agency" that is accessible via the Licensed Application from which it shall order its "consumer reports," as those terms are defined by the FCRA. Such agreement(s) shall govern the use of any and all consumer reports obtained electronically through the use of the Credit Retrieval Module of the Licensed Application. Licensee hereby certifies and warrants that any request for and/or use of consumer reports obtained through the Credit Retrieval Module function shall be strictly for "permissible purposes," as defined in Section 604 of the FCRA, and for no other purpose and shall in all other respects comply with the requirements of the FCRA. The fees for consumer reports will be paid by Licensee directly to the consumer reporting agency/agencies. In no event shall any fees charged by a consumer reporting agency be the responsibility of Fannie Mae. Fees will be at rates negotiated between Licensee and the agency/agencies.
 
  6. Limited Agency Relationship. Notwithstanding the Section of the Master Terms captioned "Independent Parties," Licensee hereby expressly acknowledges, understands and agrees that, in obtaining consumer reports via the Credit Retrieval Module and in the processing and evaluation of Consumer Credit Data by the Licensed Application for the purpose of performing any authorized analysis, Fannie Mae, as owner of the Licensed Application, (a) shall be the agent of Licensee, as that term is defined in the FCRA, and (b) in its role as limited agent, may disclose or require Licensee to disclose (through reasonable, prescribed means) to consumer reporting agencies any secondary use of such Consumer Credit Data facilitated by Licensee's use of the Licensed Application (including information relating to the identity of any secondary user). Licensee also expressly acknowledges, understands and agrees that Fannie Mae's role as Licensee's agent shall not extend beyond the limited purpose set forth in this Section and, for all other purposes, there shall be no such principal and agent relationship. Moreover, Licensee shall in no way misrepresent to third parties the limited extent of this principal/agent relationship.
 
  7. Recordkeeping. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that it may be required to maintain records of certain data pursuant to the federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act and other state and/or federal laws and regulations. Licensee understands and agrees that: (i) it bears sole responsibility for any such obligation; and (ii) it may need to download Licensed Application data into its own systems storage facilities or print out hard copies of such data from the Licensed Application in order to generate or obtain information necessary to meet such recordkeeping requirements. Licensee also understands and agrees that its access to data shall terminate upon its electronic submission of such data to the Sponsoring Lender. Under such and certain other circumstances, Licensee may need to print out hard copies of the consumer reports and uniform residential loan applications prior to submitting the related loan casefiles to a Sponsoring Lender. In no event will Fannie Mae be responsible for maintaining any such data for Licensee or to provide Licensee with any such data at any time, either in electronic or hard-copy format.
 
  8. Federal Law Compliance Warranties. Without limiting the generality of the Section of the Master Terms captioned "Compliance With Law," Licensee hereby represents and warrants that:

    (ii) Licensee shall order or request consumer reports via the Credit Retrieval Module only for a "permissible purpose," as defined in Section 604 of the FCRA and for no other purpose, and shall in all other respects comply with the requirements of the FCRA.
 
    (iii) It is Licensee's sole responsibility to, and Licensee shall, determine whether each cost relating to the origination of each residential mortgage loan is a "finance charge," as that term is defined by the Truth-in-Lending Act.
 
    (iv) Licensee shall not rely on any definitions provided in the Help Screens as being dispositive of the meaning of such terms, and shall seek its own legal counsel to determine the appropriate meaning of such terms, in light of Licensee's operations, for purposes of the Truth-in-Lending Act.
 
    (v) To the extent that Licensee elects to charge a CLO-related access fee (as "CLO" is defined by RESPA or a RESPA-related Policy Statement) to a loan applicant in connection with the Licensee's use of the Licensed Application in addition to any broker or originationrelated fees: (1) the CLO access fee shall not be duplicative and shall relate to the CLO-type services actually rendered by Licensee; and (2) any CLO disclosure required by RESPA shall be provided to the applicant in the form and manner prescribed by RESPA. Moreover, any such CLO access fee, any CLO access fee charged to the Sponsoring Lender, and the use of the Licensed Application for CLO-type services shall in all other respects comply with RESPA, including any amendments thereto.
 
  9. Information, Policies and Practices Warranties. Licensee hereby represents and warrants that all information provided by it to Fannie Mae is complete and accurate, and that any forms containing such information are executed by personnel authorized to bind the Licensee. Licensee further represents and warrants that it has adopted policies, systems and procedures that ensure submission of accurate and reliable data to the Licensed Application and adherence in all other manner to sound loan origination practices and principles.
 
  10. Limited Contractual Compliance Warranty. Licensee hereby represents and warrants that it shall abide by those terms and conditions of any contractual relationship to which it is a party with a Sponsoring Lender which bear on or are affected by Licensee's use of the Licensed Application. A breach of any such agreement between Licensee and a Sponsoring Lender, which breach arises from and is directly related to Licensee's use of the Licensed Application, shall result in a breach of the warranty set forth in this Section. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that, in the event that Sponsoring Lender advises Fannie Mae of its desire that Licensee no longer have access to Sponsoring Lender's products and other information via the Licensed Application, Licensee agrees that Fannie Mae shall be authorized to deny Licensee access to such Sponsoring Lender information via the Licensed Application. In the event that Fannie Mae, at its election and in its sole discretion, determines that Licensee's access to the Licensed Application may result in harm or potential harm to Fannie Mae or the market in general and/or its efforts to market the Licensed Application, Fannie Mae may, immediately and without notice, terminate Licensee's access to and use of the Licensed Application.
 
  11. Grant of Rights and Imposition of Obligations. The rights granted in this Schedule do not entitle Licensee to use the Licensed Materials, or any technology or intellectual property contained within them, as reference or inspiration for developing or creating another product, tool or technology in any way based upon the Licensed Application. Licensee agrees that Licensee will not, by the terms of this Schedule, obtain any rights to any ideas or concepts embodied within the Licensed Materials which may be retained in intangible form by individuals who have had access to them.
 
  12. Indemnification. The Section of the Master Terms captioned "Indemnification" shall be expanded to also provide indemnification in the event of any breach of Sections 4-6 and 7-10 of this Schedule.
 
  13. Termination for Convenience. For purposes of this Schedule, the Section of the Master Terms captioned "Termination for Convenience" will be replaced with the following:

"Either party may terminate this Schedule hereto without cause upon thirty (30) days' prior written notice to the other."

 
  14. Termination for Cause. In addition to the termination for cause events specified in the Section of the Master Terms captioned "Termination for Cause," Fannie Mae may terminate this Schedule immediately if Licensee is found by Fannie Mae to be in breach of its Information, Policies and Practices Warranties, as set forth in Section 9 of this Schedule, or its Limited Contractual Compliance Warranty, as set forth in Section 10 of this Schedule.
 
  15. Notices. In addition to the terms of the Section of the Master Terms captioned "Notices," notices directed to Licensee pertaining to this Schedule, and the entire Agreement if this Schedule is the only Schedule of the Agreement, may be sent to the address, electronic mail address or facsimile number for the point of contact to which Fannie Mae sends Licensee invoices hereunder.
