In connection with the performance of a Training Course, HITACHI or a contractor may deliver to Customer work product, defined as works of authorship, training manuals, documentation, reports, drawings and similar works ("Work Product"). Customer agrees and acknowledges that HITACHI, its licensors, or its contractors own all Work Product. All Work Product delivered to Customer pursuant to these Terms will be and remain the property of HITACHI, its licensor or its contractor. HITACHI grants to Customer a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable license to use the Work Product for Customer's internal business purposes.

Customer must not sell, sublicense, transfer, publish, display, disclose or otherwise make Work Product available to others.
HITACHI will defend or settle at its option and expense any legal proceeding brought against Customer, to the extent that it is based on a claim that Work Product or a Training Course provided hereunder directly infringes a copyright or U.S. patent, and will pay all damages and costs awarded by a court of final appeal attributable to such claim, provided that Customer: (i) gives written notice of the claim promptly to HITACHI; (ii) gives HITACHI sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim; (iii) provides to HITACHI all available information and assistance; and (iv) has not compromised or settled such claim. If any Work Product is found to infringe, or in HITACHI's opinion is likely to be found to infringe, HITACHI may elect to: (i) obtain for Customer the right to use such Work Product so that it becomes non-infringing; or (ii) remove the Work Product and refund Customer’s net book value of the Work Product. HITACHI will have no obligation to Customer under this Section 6 for any claim resulting from any unauthorized copying, use or modification of the subject Work Product, or use of an allegedly infringing version of any Work Product, if the alleged infringement could be avoided by the use of a different version made available to Customer. Section 7 states HITACHI's entire liability, and Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for intellectual property rights claims relating to or arising out of any Work Product or Training Course.
HITACHI warrants that it will provide Training Courses in a professional and workmanlike manner. WORK PRODUCT IS PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER "AS IS." HITACHI DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NONINFRINGEMENT.
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, HITACHI'S OR ITS AFFILIATES’ AND LICENSORS' AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR A TRAINING COURSE PROVIDED BY HITACHI HEREUNDER, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT OR IN TORT, WILL BE LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF: (1) FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER FOR THE TRAINING COURSE WHICH IS THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE CLAIM; OR (2) HITACHI’S THEN CURRENT LIST FEE FOR THE TRAINING COURSE WHICH IS THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE CLAIM. IN NO EVENT WILL HITACHI BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR A COURSE PROVIDED BY HITACHI HEREUNDER (INCLUDING LOSS OF BUSINESS, REVENUE, PROFITS, USE, DATA OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE), HOWEVER IT ARISES WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT OR IN TORT, EVEN IF HITACHI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF ANY EXCLUSIVE REMEDY PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
Customer agrees to comply strictly with all applicable export control laws and regulations.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable, these Terms will remain in full force and effect with the provision omitted. No delay or omission to exercise any right or remedy accruing to HITACHI upon any breach or default of Customer will impair that right or remedy, or be construed to be a waiver of any breach or default. A waiver by HITACHI of any breach or default under these Terms must be in writing and executed by an authorized officer of HITACHI.
A party is not liable under these Terms for non-performance caused by events or conditions beyond that party's control. This provision does not relieve Customer of its obligation to fulfill payment obligations.
Neither Party will assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations under these Terms, except that HITACHI may assign its right to payment to a HITACHI Affiliate. HITACHI may subcontract its obligations under these Terms.
All written notice required by these Terms must be delivered in person or by other means evidenced by a delivery receipt or acknowledgment and will be effective upon receipt.
