1. ACCESS TO THE INTRALINKS TRIAL SERVICE
The Trial Service is designed to enable business communities to share information and collaborate (the “Trial Service”). You can access the Trial Service through Intralinks' web site or through standalone software utilities designed for use with the Trial Service (if made available to You). The Trial Service includes but is not limited to any images, "applets", photographs, animations, video, audio and text incorporated into the Trial Service by Intralinks, the "look and feel" of the Trial Service, and any proprietary software provided to You by Intralinks for the purpose of accessing and using the Trial Service. The Trial Service does not include any data or materials sent, posted or received by You through the Trial Service including the text of a message and attachments thereto (such data and materials are collectively referred to as, the "Content").
Subject to Your compliance with the terms of this Agreement, Intralinks grants You a temporary, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable, limited right and license (the " Trial License") to access the Trial Service for business purposes only and consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your use of a standalone software utility to access and use the Trial Service will also be governed by and will be in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Standalone software utilities may include automatic update technology designed to automatically download updates to the utility to Your computer, and You consent to the receipt of such updates. This Agreement will apply to all use of the Trial Service using Your Intralinks ID(s) and password(s) (and any use of the Service by You via a standalone software utility configured to access the Service with a "role" Intralinks ID and password). In the event that You are also a user of Intralinks Exchanges (also known as VDRs) or Intralinks Courier, this Agreement does not affect or govern Your use of any such Intralinks Exchanges or Intralinks Courier. To the extent You initiated the Trial Service directly with Intralinks’ sales organization for an enterprise-level trial, You are authorized to permission other individuals to create work streams, subject to the terms of this Agreement.

Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason or upon discontinuance or abandonment of Your use of the Trial Service, You must promptly destroy all materials in Your possession pertaining to the Trial Service (including all copies thereof and any proprietary software Intralinks provided to You, but not including any Content which is rightfully in Your possession). You agree to promptly provide Intralinks with written certification of Your compliance with the terms of this paragraph upon Intralinks' request.

5. COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS
You acknowledge and agree that Your access to and use of the Service, may be subject to applicable foreign, federal, state and/or local laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations, including without limitation, the rules and regulations of foreign, federal, state, and/or local agencies, such as the Federal Communications Commission and/or the Securities and Exchange Commission (each such agency, a "Regulatory Agency"). You agree to comply with all laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, and/or requirements imposed by any government or Regulatory Agency on Your use, transmission, and disclosure of any data or information via the Service. You also represent and warrant that any data, media, or other content You disseminate through the Service does not violate the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party.
6. NO WARRANTY
You acknowledge that neither Intralinks nor any other third party partner or agent of Intralinks involved in the provision of the Trial Service (each such third party, a "Third Party Provider") can ensure that the operation of, performance of, and/or access to the Trial Service will be uninterrupted or error-free. Intralinks does not and cannot control the flow of data to or from the Trial Service, as such flow depends in large part on the performance of computer hardware and Internet services and software provided or controlled by third parties (including You), on the public Intranet infrastructure, and on other events beyond the reasonable control of Intralinks. At times, action or inaction of third parties, hardware/software problems with the public Internet infrastructure or with Your computing equipment, or other events beyond the reasonable control of Intralinks can impair or disrupt Your connection to the Trial Service. Therefore in connection with this Trial Service, Intralinks will not be liable for any such interruptions in Your ability to access the Trial Service resulting from or related to such services, software, or events.
You acknowledge and agree that Intralinks shall not be responsible for the substance of the Content or the modification, use or publication of the Content by You or any other third party (other than Intralinks' agents and subcontractors). Intralinks shall not be responsible for the accuracy, nature, content or completeness of information obtained by You from the Trial Service.
THE TRIAL SERVICE IS PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN "AS-IS" BASIS, AND INTRALINKS DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL EXPRESS OR IMPLIED PROMISES, REPRESENTATIONS, AND WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO THE TRIAL SERVICE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ITS CONDITION, CONFORMITY TO ANY REPRESENTATION OR DESCRIPTION, ITS COMPATIBILITY WITH ALL EQUIPMENT AND SOFTWARE CONFIGURATIONS, THE EXISTENCE OF ANY LATENT OR PATENT DEFECTS, ANY NEGLIGENCE, WARRANTIES OF TITLE, AGAINST INFRINGEMENT, AND ITS MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS AGREEMENT GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY BY JURISDICTION.
You acknowledge that the transmission of data via the Trial Service is subject to the likelihood of human and machine errors, omissions, delays, and losses (including but not limited to viruses or inadvertent loss of data or damage to media) that may give rise to loss or damage. Intralinks will not be liable for any such errors, omissions, delays, or losses, and You assume all risk and liability in respect of Your use of the Trial Service.
When a user accesses data on the Trial Service (e.g., a publication, comment, or attachments to a publication or comment), a copy of that data is copied to that user's local computer (this is called "caching" and is part of how web browsers work). Caching is used to improve the speed of the Trial Service when You repeatedly access graphics or data during a session. Once pages and/or data have been cached on Your local computer that data is beyond the control of Intralinks, and may be accessible to anyone with access to Your computer. Each Trial Service user assumes all risk and liability associated with any data cached to that user's local computer. Intralinks strongly recommends that You empty Your web browser cache when You log out of an Intralinks session to ensure that any cached files from Your Intralinks session are deleted from Your computer. For assistance with emptying the cache on Your web browser, please call Intralinks' customer care.
The Trial Service should only be used as a conduit for information, not as primary information storage. As a user, You are responsible for adopting reasonable measures to limit the impact of data loss (such as corruption or virus infection), including (a) keeping on Your local computer backup copies of data You transmit via the Trial Service in the event You have to re-transmit the data; (b) verifying the data in documents or other materials before transmitting them via the Trial Service; and (c) verifying that documents and other information You have posted to the Trial Service has been properly posted and have been permissioned to only those persons to whom You wish to grant access. You shall also run antivirus software on any computer You use to access the Trial Service and shall ensure that documents and files transmitted through the Trial Service have been scanned for viruses.
8. CONTENT STORED IN THE UNITED STATES
Except as explicitly set forth in this Agreement, the Trial Service is provided from the United States. By using and accessing the Service, You understand and consent to the storage and processing of the Content and any other personal information in the United States. Intralinks reserves the right to store and process personal information outside of the United States and You consent to same. If requested by You prior to activation of the Trial Service, Your Content may be stored in the United Kingdom.
Only in circumstances where You are a "data controller" pursuant to the terms of Directive 95/46/EEC and its applicable implementing legislation ("European Data Protection Legislation") shall the following provisions apply:
(a) each party shall comply with the European Data Protection Legislation in connection with the performance of its obligations and the exercise of its rights under this Agreement; and
(b) without prejudice to paragraph (a), with respect to the processing of personal data by Intralinks under this Agreement, Intralinks shall take appropriate technical and organizational security measures against unauthorized or unlawful processing of personal data supplied to it by You and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, such personal data in accordance with the Seventh Data Protection Principle as set out in the European Data Protection Legislation (the "Seventh Principle"). Intralinks will not process any personal data under this Agreement unless, in accordance with the requirements of the Seventh Principle, Intralinks is acting on Your express instructions, it being understood such instructions shall be deemed to have been given by You to Intralinks by virtue of this paragraph (b), provided that such processing relates exclusively to the provision of the Trial Service. You acknowledge that Intralinks may transfer End User Files to Intralinks’ Affiliates and its subcontractors, which may be located outside the European Economic Area; provided that such transfer shall be solely as needed to perform the Services hereunder and Intralinks shall be responsible for ensuring its Affiliates and subcontractors handle End User Files in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
10. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT WILL INTRALINKS (INCLUDING ITS CURRENT AND FORMER SHAREHOLDERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENT) OR ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDER BE LIABLE TO YOU IN RELATION TO THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY, LOSS OF REVENUES OR SAVINGS, LOSS OF DATA OR COSTS OF RECREATING LOST DATA) WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF INTRALINKS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION UPON DAMAGES AND CLAIMS IS INTENDED TO APPLY WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT HAVE BEEN BREACHED OR HAVE BEEN HELD TO BE INVALID OR INEFFECTIVE.
FURTHER, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF INTRALINKS (INCLUDING ITS CURRENT AND FORMER SHAREHOLDERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS) AND ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDER TO YOU IN RELATION TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT IN ANY EVENT EXCEED THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT OF ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($1,000.00). THE FOREGOING NOTWITHSTANDING, NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL EXCLUDE OR OTHERWISE LIMIT ANY LIABILITY FOR (A) PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH CAUSED DIRECTLY BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF INTRALINKS OR A THIRD PARTY; OR (B) FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION; OR (C) WILLFUL MISCONDUCT. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS ARE A FUNDAMENTAL PART OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN HEREUNDER.
Without limiting the foregoing, in no event will any third party involved with or assisting in the marketing and/or development of the Trial Service have any responsibility or liability for any claims or damages whatsoever in any way connected to the Trial Service or their use, whether in tort or otherwise. The provisions of this Section 10 will operate for the benefit of and may be enforced by any such third party.
11. INDEMNIFICATION RELATING TO POSTED DATA
You are solely responsible for any Content that You post through the Trial Service and You agree to hold harmless and fully indemnify Intralinks from and against any and all damages, losses, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred by Intralinks or its affiliates, or their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, in connection with any notice, claim, action or proceeding by a third party that is based on any actual or alleged violation by You of any applicable law, regulation, third party right or third party agreement governing the posting or use of such Content.
12. EXPORT OF STANDALONE UTILITIES
If You are provided with any standalone software utilities for use with the Trial Service, You acknowledge that these utilities may be subject to regulation by applicable laws and United States government and other governmental agencies which prohibit export or diversion of certain products, information about the products, or direct products of the products to certain countries and certain persons. You represent and warrant that You will not export or re-export the software provided as part of the Trial Service in violation of these regulations to a national destination prohibited under these regulations or to any person to whom exports, re-exports or transfers are prohibited under these regulations.
You acknowledge that Your breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement may cause immediate and irreparable harm to Intralinks for which Intralinks may not have an adequate remedy in money or damages. Intralinks will therefore be entitled to obtain an injunction against such breach from any court of competent jurisdiction immediately upon request and will be entitled to recover from You the costs incurred in seeking such an injunction. Intralinks' right to obtain injunctive relief will not limit its right to seek or obtain further remedies.
14. GOVERNING LAW
This Agreement is governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, United States of America.
In connection with an dispute arising under or in connection with this Agreement, the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally (a) consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York and of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and (b) consent that any process or notice or motion or other application to the court or judge thereof may be served within or without the State of New York by registered or certified mail or internationally-recognized courier service, or by personal service, provided a reasonable time for appearance is allowed.
You may not assign, novate or otherwise transfer any rights or obligations under this Agreement, including by operation of law nor through the sale of all or any part of Your employer, without Intralinks' prior written consent. Any attempted or purported assignment, delegation or other transfer by You without such consent shall be void.
All provisions of this Agreement which expressly or by implication continue to govern the parties' rights and obligations after termination of use of the Service shall survive notwithstanding completion of any project in connection with which the Trial Service is used or deletion of any Intralinks® Exchanges to which You are given access.
In no event will this Agreement be deemed to modify or amend any agreement between Intralinks and You for any Intralinks services or products. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between You and Intralinks and supersedes any and all other proposals or agreements, written or oral, and any other communications between You and Intralinks relating to Your use of the Trial Service and You shall have no right of action against Intralinks in connection with any such proposals, agreements or communications. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable for any reason, such provision will be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and such holding will not impair the validity, legality, or enforceability of the remaining provisions. No waiver by Intralinks of any breach of any term or condition of this Agreement will constitute a waiver of, or consent to, any subsequent breach of the same or any other term or condition of this Agreement. Except as explicitly set forth herein, no other act, document, usage, custom, or course of dealing shall be deemed to amend or modify this Agreement. Notices pursuant to this Agreement shall reference this Agreement and shall be provided (a) if to Intralinks, by personal delivery, registered mail return receipt requested, or internationally-recognized courier service to Intralinks, Inc., 150 East 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017, Attn: General Counsel; or (b) if to You, by email to the email address provided as Your User ID.
