  1. Company Obligations. Company understands, acknowledges, and agrees that the obligations described in this Section 4, Section 5 and in Attachment A are integral to the purpose and intent of this Agreement, are a condition of Company’s continued listing on the Device Stage Referral Page, and that any breach (or other failure to perform any obligation) of this Section 4 or of Attachment A is material and may result in termination. Moreover, if Company breaches any of the obligations in this Section 4, Section 5 or in Attachment A, Microsoft may immediately remove all references to Company (including any link to the Company Landing Page) from the Device Stage Referral Page.

Neither party will issue any press release concerning this Agreement (except as permitted under Section 6 or this Section 8) or use the other party’s name in connection with this Agreement without such other party’s prior written approval, which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Microsoft may, however, subject to the usage guidelines (if any) in Attachment B and for the sole purpose of identifying Company (in advertising, promotion, press releases, and other public disclosures) as a vendor offering software through this Agreement, make referential use of Company’s name and logo depicted in Attachment B and include Company in its vendor list.

When performing this Agreement, each party will comply with all applicable laws and other requirements of governments having jurisdiction (including laws related to consumer transactions and laws related to import or export). No waiver of any breach will waive any other breach, and no waiver will be effective unless made in writing and signed by the waiving party’s authorized representative. Unless stated otherwise, each party will pay its own costs to perform its obligations. All rights and remedies stated are cumulative and in addition to any other rights or remedies under law or at equity, subject only to any limitations stated in this Agreement. All referenced Attachments are hereby deemed incorporated into this Agreement.

Entire Agreement; Modification. This Agreement is not an offer by Microsoft, and it will not be effective until signed by Microsoft after signing by Company.
