Licensor shall have the right, but not the obligation, to take control of all negotiations and litigation arising out of the claim. Licensor will pay damages and costs awarded against Licensee in connection with any claim subject to a maximum of the Subscription Fee paid to Licensor by Licensee. Licensor shall have the right at its sole choice, to either; (i) use reasonable endeavours to negotiation terms for continued use by Licensee of the claimed infringing software; or (ii) use reasonable endeavours to amend the Software to make it non-infringing; or (iii) terminate this Agreement with immediate effect and in such event, Licensor shall refund to Licensee the Subscription Fee paid.

Accordingly, Licensor shall be entitled to seek an injunction or other equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of those clauses.
15.2 Compliance with applicable law. Licensee agrees that, notwithstanding clause 15.1 above, Licensee may be subject to additional laws in other jurisdictions with respect to its use of the Software in such jurisdictions. Licensee agrees to comply with the laws of any such jurisdiction including, without limitation, any applicable export laws or regulations.
15.3 Severability. If any provision or part of any provision in this Agreement is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable for any reason then the remaining provisions or part provisions remain unaffected and the parties shall meet promptly to discuss in good faith and agree an alternative provision or part provision that provides as closely as possible, the same commercial effect as the original.
15.4 No waiver. No failure or delay by any party to exercise any right, power or remedy will operate as a waiver of it, nor will any partial exercise preclude any further exercise of the same, or of some other right, power or remedy.
15.5 No third party rights. Licensor and Licensee do not intend that any of this Agreement will be enforceable by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by any person not a party to it and all rights by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 are hereby excluded.
