7. Proprietary Rights

Lumina Networks and each of its third party suppliers own and retains for itself all right, title and interest in and to the Software and all designs, engineering details, data, materials, discoveries, inventions, trade secrets, patents and other proprietary rights pertaining to or reflected by the Lumina Networks Offerings.

8. Confidential Information

8.1 Confidentiality. Confidential Information means any information disclosed by Lumina Networks to End User, either directly or indirectly, in writing, orally or by inspection of tangible objects, proprietary information, technical data, trade secrets (other than the Source Code) or know-how (including, without limitation, research, product plans, products, services, customers, markets, works of original authorship, photographs, negatives, digital images, software, computer programs, know-how, ideas, inventions (whether or not patentable), processes, formula, technology, designs, drawings, engineering, hardware configuration information, marketing or finance documents and other technical, business, financial, customer and product development plans, forecasts, strategies and information), which is designated as “Confidential,” “Proprietary” or some similar designation by Lumina Networks or which the End User knows or has reason to known is regarded as confidential by Lumina Networks (“Confidential Information“). Confidential Information may include information disclosed to Lumina Networks by third parties. End User will at all times keep in confidence all such Confidential Information, and shall not use such Confidential Information without Lumina Networks’ written consent except in the performance of End User’s duties hereunder. End User may not disclose the Confidential Information to any person except its employees to whom it is necessary to disclose the Confidential Information for permissible internal business purposes and who have agreed to receive it under terms at least as restrictive as those specified in these Software Terms. End User’s obligation to protect Confidential Information is satisfied if End User utilizes the same control over the Confidential Information as End User employs to avoid disclosure of End User’s own confidential and valuable information (but no less than commercially reasonable control). End User will immediately give notice to Lumina Networks of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information. End User agrees to assist Lumina Networks in remedying such unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information. The foregoing obligations will not apply to the extent End User can demonstrate:

8.1.1 The disclosed Confidential Information was part of the public domain at the time of disclosure;

8.1.2 End User can establish by written evidence that the disclosed Confidential Information was in the possession of the End User, without an obligation of confidentiality, at the time of its disclosure by Lumina Networks;

8.1.3 End User received the disclosed Confidential information from a third party without similar restrictions on disclosure and without breach of these Software Terms or any other agreement; or

8.2 In the event that End User is required to disclose the Confidential Information to a government agency to further the objectives of these Software Terms, such as to obtain permission to distribute the Lumina Networks Offering as permitted hereunder, or in the event a proper court of competent jurisdiction orders its disclosure, End User will use its best efforts to minimize the disclosure of such Confidential information and will consult with and assist Lumina Networks in obtaining a protective order prior to such disclosure.

8.3 Retention Rights. Lumina Networks may use any general learning, skills, or know-how or any information retained in the unaided memory of a person who had access to the End User’s confidential information for any purpose. Lumina Networks is free to develop products independently and Lumina Networks is not obligated to restrict the future work assignments of people who have had access to End User’s confidential information or to restrict Lumina Networks product development or plans in any way due to such access. Lumina Networks may use any technical information it derives from providing Support or other services. In the event of an unauthorized use, distribution or disclosure of any Confidential Information, the parties agree that Lumina Networks will not have an adequate remedy at law. Therefore, injunctive or other equitable relief may be appropriate to restrain such use, distribution or disclosure, whether threatened or actual. To the extent that Lumina Networks provides End User serial numbers, access codes, entitlement numbers or the license to access or use Software or Support, End User is responsible for the security and use of such information, including that contained in the documentation therefore. If End User believes any Lumina Networks Confidential Information has been lost, stolen, or misused, End User must immediately notify Lumina Networks and its designated Support contact.

8.4 Source Code. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 8, Lumina Networks’ proprietary Source Code constitutes a trade secret and may not be disclosed under these Software Terms or otherwise. End User may not disclose or use Lumina Networks’ proprietary Source Code without the express written consent of Lumina Networks. Lumina Networks will make any and all source code applicable to Open Source Software available as required by the terms of the applicable Open Source license.

End User acknowledges that the Lumina Networks Offerings provided under these Software Terms may be subject to the provisions of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations and export and import regulations in countries outside the U.S.  End User agrees to comply with all such applicable laws and regulations, as required. End User acknowledges and agrees that it will not import, export, re-export, transfer or use, directly or indirectly, the Lumina Networks Offerings in violation of the laws and regulations of any applicable jurisdiction.

End User acknowledges that certain Software or technologies may be classified as “restricted encryption” items under section

740.17(b)(2) of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations and may require export licenses or U.S. re-export approval when being shipped from the U.S. or other countries. End User agrees to indemnify, defend (with counsel approved in writing in advance by Lumina Networks) and hold Lumina Networks, its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless against any claims for cost, damage, expense or liability arising out of or in connection with any breach of End User’s obligations under this Section.



11. Payments

11.1 Payments; Payment Terms. Lumina Networks requires pre-payment unless otherwise stated on the purchase documentation or invoice from Lumina Networks, Where payment is not made in advance End User shall pay amounts due and payable to Lumina Networks within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice using the payment method agreed upon by Lumina Networks. If credit and credit terms have been agreed to by Lumina Networks, then the credit is provided as of the due date, and any credit charges will be applied as of that date. Lumina Networks is under no obligation to offer, and may revoke, credit or credit terms in its sole discretion. Payment shall be made to the applicable Lumina Networks entity named on the purchase documentation. In addition to any other remedy available to Lumina Networks for late payment, Lumina Networks may charge interest on overdue amounts at the rate of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less, for each month, or partial month, calculated from the payment due date.  All payments are to be made in United States Dollars. Lumina Networks may invoice parts of an order separately or together in one invoice. If End User purchases a multi-year Subscription and related Support Plan, and Lumina Networks agrees to annualize such Subscription purchase over the Subscription term, End User agrees to make all annual payments in full and such purchase is non-cancellable over the term of the Subscription. Any assignment of End User’s payment obligations to a third-party financing company must be approved in advance in writing by Lumina Networks, and Lumina Networks’ approval will not excuse End User from its obligations hereunder. Lumina Networks shall be entitled to all reasonable legal and attorney fees and associated costs of collecting overdue amounts.

11.2  Taxes.  Charges are stated exclusive of sales, use, value added, customs charges, duties, gross receipts, and services or other taxes or fees imposed under or by any governmental authority, whether levied against End User or Lumina Networks (“Taxes”).  Except for Taxes based on or measured by Lumina Networks net income, End User shall pay, or reimburse Lumina Networks for its payment of all Taxes, freight, and insurance. If End User claims an exemption from its obligation to pay Taxes, it must promptly provide Lumina Networks with an appropriate, accurate, and valid tax exemption certificate. End User must make all payments free and clear, without deduction for any present or future Taxes imposed by any taxing authority.  If End User is prohibited by law from making any payment unless such deductions are made or withheld, End User must pay an additional amount such that the net amount received by Lumina Networks, after such deduction or withholding, equals the amount that would have been received if the deduction or withholding had not occurred. End User must promptly furnish Lumina Networks with a copy of an official tax receipt or other appropriate evidence of any tax imposed on payments, including taxes on any additional amounts paid as required by this Section.  Each party agrees to cooperate with each other to minimize any applicable Taxes, including reasonable notice and cooperation in the case of any audit.

11.4  Payment Disputes.  All invoices shall be deemed accurate unless End User provides Lumina Networks notice in writing of a material error within 10 calendar days following receipt of the invoice.  Such notice must describe the grounds for the dispute in reasonable detail. If the dispute described in the notice is reasonable, and End User timely pays any undisputed part of the invoice, the due date for the disputed amount will be extended until Lumina Networks determines whether such amount is accurate.  If End User withholds payment of a disputed amount, and Lumina Networks concludes that such amount is accurate and payable, End User shall pay interest as described herein from the due date for such amounts until Lumina Networks receipt of those amounts. End User may not offset, defer or deduct any invoiced amounts that Lumina Networks determines are not erroneous following the notification process set forth above.

12. Term and Termination

12.1 Term and Termination. The term applicable for the license(s) granted for Software and any associated Support or Services begins on the date End User first purchases, accesses, downloads, installs, or uses (whichever occurs first) the Software (“Initial Access”) and continues through the Subscription term purchased and as stated on End User’s purchase documentation. Lumina Networks may immediately suspend, or terminate the license(s) granted under these Software Terms and the Supplemental License Terms or restrict access to the Lumina Networks Offerings if Lumina Networks believes End User breached or will breach any provision of these Software Terms or the Supplemental License Terms.  Lumina Networks reserves the right to temporarily suspend or permanently terminate use of or access to the Software or Support.

12.2 End User will provide Lumina Networks with an estimate of the number of units required by it annually. This estimate will
include renewal of previously expired Licenses for each Software product required. End User will base any renewal orders upon this estimate. Unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Order, the License will automatically renew for additional terms of the same length as the initial license term at Lumina Networks’ then current pricing unless either party declines renewal by notice in writing to that effect delivered to the other party at least 30 days prior to expiration of the then current License Term.

12.3 Effect of Termination and Survival. Notwithstanding any other obligation hereunder, upon any termination or expiration of these Software Terms, End User shall return to Lumina Networks each and every copy of the Software and the corresponding software keys or certify their destruction in writing, and End User shall not retain any copies of any Lumina Networks Confidential Information or Software. The following Sections of these Software Terms survive termination or expiration of these Software Terms or applicable order: 1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13.

13. Miscellaneous

13.1 Governing Law; Venue. With respect to any Lumina Networks Offering licensed or purchased by the End User, these Software Terms are entered into, and all Software and other Lumina Networks Offerings shall be performed and delivered by or on behalf of Lumina Networks, Inc. All disputes arising out of these Software Terms for transactions in the US shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and Federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California, and the parties: (i) agree and submit to the personal and non-exclusive jurisdiction and venue of these courts, and (ii) agree that service on End User at its address of public record constitutes valid service for any proceeding in the courts of that jurisdiction; and (iii) that these Software Terms shall be governed by the laws of California without reference to conflict of laws principles. All disputes arising out these Software Terms for transactions outside the US must be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with said rules and these Software Terms will be governed by the laws of California without reference to conflict of laws principles. The place of arbitration will be Santa Clara County, California U.S.A. The arbitral tribunal shall conduct the proceedings and all awards will be rendered in the English language. The U.N. Convention on the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Software Terms. This choice of jurisdiction does not prevent Lumina Networks from seeking injunctive or interlocutory relief with respect to a violation of intellectual property rights or confidentiality obligations in any appropriate jurisdiction.

13.2 Severability. If any term or other provision of these Software Terms is determined by a non-appealable decision of a court, administrative agency or arbitrator to be invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of these Software Terms shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to either party.
