In no event will Vendor’s liability to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, exceed the amount paid by you for Software under this Agreement. The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated warranty fails of its essential purpose. Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so some of the terms above may not be applicable to you.
Termination. This Agreement is effective until terminated. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by destroying all copies of Software. This Agreement will terminate immediately without notice from Vendor if you fail to comply with any provision of this Agreement. Either party may terminate this Agreement immediately should any Software become, or in either party’s opinion be likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement of any intellectual property right.
