DAFwidget License Agreement
This DAFwidget License Agreement (“Agreement”) is between Marketsmart L.L.C. (“MarketSmart”) and the legal entity identified as using MarketSmart’s donor-advised fund software widget (such legal entity, “you” or “Company”, and such software widget the “DAFwidget”). This Agreement governs Company’s access to and use of the DAFwidget, which is further described here: dafwidget.com.

INSTALLING OR USING THE DAFWIDGET, OR CLICKING “ACCEPT” OR A SIMILAR BUTTON IN THE COURSE OF INSTALLING THE DAFWIDGET, MEANS THAT COMPANY HAS READ, UNDERSTANDS, AND ACCEPTS THIS AGREEMENT. The individual accepting this Agreement represents and warrants to MarketSmart that he or she is lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g., is not a minor). If the individual accepting this Agreement is entering into this Agreement or using the DAFwidget for the benefit of a legal entity, such as the company he or she works for, then such individual represents to MarketSmart that he or she has the legal authority to bind that entity.

(b) License Restrictions. Company shall use the DAFwidget only for its own business purposes, and may not sublicense, loan, sell, rent, or lease the DAFwidget. Furthermore, except for the limited distribution to end users of Company’s website expressly permitted in Section 1(a), Company shall not distribute the DAFwidget to any third party. Company will not disassemble, reverse engineer, or take other action to attempt to derive the source code of the DAFwidget, except to the extent that applicable local law expressly permits such activity.

(c) Reservation of Rights. As between Company and MarketSmart, MarketSmart retains ownership of the DAFwidget and all intellectual property therein. All rights not expressly granted to Company are reserved by MarketSmart. Company has no rights to use, modify, distribute, copy, or reproduce the DAFwidget except as expressly set forth in this Agreement.
(d) Feedback. From time to time Company may provide suggestions, enhancement or modification requests, recommendations, or other feedback relating to the DAFwidget (collectively, “Suggestions”). MarketSmart owns all right, title and interest in any Suggestions, and Company hereby assigns and transfers to MarketSmart all its right, title and interest (including all intellectual property rights) in and to the Suggestions.

For the purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means the terms of this Agreement, and any non-public information or other materials provided by MarketSmart to Company under or in connection with this Agreement. Confidential Information does not include any information that Company can reasonably demonstrate: (a) is or becomes part of the public domain, other than as a result of the actions of Company or its employees or contractors; (b) was already rightfully known to Company as of the time it is disclosed to or obtained by Company and without limitation on use or disclosure; (c) is subsequently learned from a third party not under a confidentiality obligation to MarketSmart; or (d) is independently developed by Company without reference to MarketSmart’s Confidential Information. Except with the prior written consent of MarketSmart, Company shall not: use MarketSmart’s Confidential Information except to exercise its rights or perform its obligations in this Agreement, or disclose MarketSmart’s Confidential Information other than: (i) to Company’s attorneys, accountants and financial representatives under a duty of confidentiality as may be reasonably necessary in order to receive their professional advice; (ii) to Company’s employees and contractors who have a need to know and are subject to confidentiality obligations equivalent to those in this Agreement; and (iii) in connection with any legal, governmental or administrative proceeding, provided that Company gives prior written notice of such disclosure to MarketSmart (if legally permitted) in order to afford MarketSmart a reasonable opportunity to seek a protective order and Company cooperates with MarketSmart, at MarketSmart’s reasonable request and expense, in any lawful action to contest or limit the scope of such required disclosure. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, MarketSmart may derive data from usage of the DAFwidget that does not identify Company (collectively, “Aggregated Data”). In addition, MarketSmart may, in accordance with DAFwidget Legal Terms and Privacy Statement, collect and use certain information from end users of the DAFwidget on Company’s website (“User Data”). MarketSmart owns all right, title, and interest in and to Aggregated Data and User Data, and may use such data for MarketSmart’s business purposes, such as improving its products and services.

Company shall indemnify MarketSmart, its affiliates, and its and their officers, directors, employees, and agents from any out-of-pocket and costs, expenses, and fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by them in connection with such Claim, including, but not limited to, any damages, awards, penalties, and other amounts awarded against or owed to a third party by them resulting from any judgment or settlement of such Claim.

(b) Exclusion of Consequential and Related Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL MARKETSMART BE LIABLE TO COMPANY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR USE OF DATA OR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, EVEN IF MARKETSMART OR ITS REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS.

This Agreement and any claim, controversy or dispute arising under or related to this Agreement or the DAFwidget shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Maryland, USA, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. Subject to the following sentence, both parties irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in or embracing Greenbelt, Maryland, United States of America.

Company may not assign this Agreement, in whole or in part to any third party without the prior written consent of MarketSmart; provided, however, Company may assign this Agreement to an affiliate or entity that acquires all or substantially all of Company’s assets (by merger, asset acquisition, or otherwise) upon written notice to MarketSmart. MarketSmart may assign this Agreement in whole or in part.
(h) Entire Agreement. This Agreement supersedes all previous agreements, whether oral or written, with respect to its subject matter. This Agreement may only be changed in a writing signed by authorized representatives of each party.

Company agrees to remain at all times in full compliance with U.S. Government export policy and regulations and failure of such compliance shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement.
