The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) shall not apply to this Agreement. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.

IQ8.2 Dispute Resolution.

  1. Informal Dispute Resolution. In the event of any Dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement or the breach thereof, the parties shall endeavor to settle the Dispute. To this effect, the management-level representatives from each party shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If a Dispute is not resolved within sixty (60) days, then upon notice by either party to the other, the Dispute shall be settled by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") Commercial Arbitration Rules, as described below. A single arbitrator appointed as provided in the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules will be an attorney experienced in computer software, licensing, and information technology disputes. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any and all disputes relating to procedural and substantive questions concerning the arbitration, including choice of venue and choice of law issues, and the formation, interpretation, applicability, scope, and enforceability of this Agreement to arbitrate. The arbitration proceeding shall be conducted in the English language and shall occur in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, or, with the consent of the arbitrator and the parties, another mutually agreeable metropolitan area. The arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§1-16, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction.
  2. Arbitration. The arbitrator shall award appropriate fees and costs to the prevailing party. If it becomes necessary for either party to compel arbitration or to enforce an arbitration award, that party may bring an action in any court of competent jurisdiction and the prevailing party shall recover from the other party its costs and expenses, including court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees (including allocable costs of in-house counsel). The arbitration and all related proceedings and discovery will take place pursuant to a protective order entered by the arbitrator that protects the confidential nature of the parties' proprietary and confidential information. No arbitration award may provide a remedy beyond those permitted under this Agreement, and any award providing a remedy not permitted under this Agreement will not be valid and will be vacated. No Dispute may be brought as a class action, and neither party may act as a class representative or participate as a member of a class of claimants with respect to any Dispute. BOTH PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ALL RIGHT OR ENTITLEMENT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN CONNECTION WITH ANY DISPUTE THAT ARISES OUT OF OR RELATES IN ANY WAY TO THIS AGREEMENT.
  3. Litigation Rights. Either party may, without waiving any remedy under this Agreement, seek temporary or permanent injunctive relief including without limitation equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction to protect its Confidential Information, non-solicitation rights, license rights and intellectual property rights, regardless of the arbitration requirements. Deltek reserves the right to pursue collections activity or legal action in a court of competent jurisdiction to compel payment due hereunder and, in such a case, Deltek shall be entitled to recover its costs and reasonable attorneys' fees, regardless of the arbitration requirements.

Any copy, modification, revision, correction, update, enhancement, adaptation, translation, or derivative work of or created from the Products, Documentation or Third Party Data ("Derivative") shall be owned solely and exclusively by Deltek or its licensors or third parties, as applicable. For the avoidance of doubt, a Derivative does not include the publicly available information provided through the Product. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Customer assigns title, ownership, and all rights to Deltek in any Derivative.

  3. Deltek may remove Content from the Products that infringes third party copyrights or other intellectual property rights and suspend the user ID of any user who uses the Products in violation of copyright law or other laws governing intellectual property rights, and where appropriate, blocking such user’s access to the Products.

  4. If Customer's use of the Product or Documentation is impacted as a result of an infringement or misappropriation Claim or if Deltek believes such a Claim is likely, then Deltek may, at its option and expense, either (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Product or Documentation, or (ii) replace or modify the Product or Documentation so that it no longer infringes or misappropriates a patent, copyright, or trade secret. If Deltek deems (i) or (ii) not feasible, Deltek will terminate all Products rendered unusable and return the unused portion of the fees paid by Customer for the Product or Documentation.
