        expeditious manner possible, and the parties agree to co-operate in the speedy conduct of such legal proceedings

        adapt, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, modify, adapt or make error corrections to the Software in whole

        with the operation of other software or systems used by the Customer
      8. The Customer may not use any such information provided by the Supplier or obtained by the Customer during any
        such reduction permitted under clause 22.7 to create any software whose expression is substantially similar to that of

        2. keep a complete and accurate record of the Customer’s copying and disclosure of the Software and its
          users, and produce such record to the Supplier on request from time to time;
        3. notify the Supplier as soon as it becomes aware of any unauthorized use of the Software by any person;
        4. pay, for broadening the scope of the licences granted under this Agreement to cover the unauthorized use,
          an amount equal to the fees which the Supplier would have levied (in accordance with its normal
          commercial terms then current) had it licensed any such unauthorised use on the date when such use

        Hardware or other hardware located there) at or on which the Software is being kept or used, and have access to any
        records kept in connection with this licence, for the purposes of ensuring that the Customer is complying with the

        notice to the Customer.

        to be configured and delivered within the agreed time line, the Customer is required to provide the final data no later
        than ten working days before the date of installation. If the data has not been received, ten working days before the
        agreed install date, the Supplier, at its discretion may levy additional charges at its overtime rate. If the customer
        requires delivery sooner than the working ten day period, after delivering the required data, the Company will levy
        additional charges as its overtime rate.
      6. If new sets of data are received by the Supplier from the Customer, after the Customer has confirmed the received
        final data sets have been delivered, any changes required may result in the Supplier charging for the additional time
        work undertaken. The Supplier will also levy additional charges for any programming changes onsite during
        installation.
      7. The Customer shall be responsible (at the Customer’s cost) for preparing the delivery Site(s) for the delivery of the
        Software and for the provision of all necessary access and facilities reasonably required to deliver and install the

        preparation has been carried out, the Supplier may levy additional charges to recover any loss arising.
      8. The customer shall be responsible for checking the delivery documents and ensuring that serial numbers and licence
        numbers match the software and equipment being delivered.
      9. If within 7 days of the Software Delivery Date the Customer discovers a Software Defect, the Customer shall notify
        the Supplier immediately.
      10. On confirmation of a Software Defect by the Supplier, the Supplier shall, at its option and expense, either repair or

        Rights of a third party (a Claim) and shall be responsible for any reasonable losses, damages, costs (including legal

          the purpose of assessing the Claim; and
        4. taking such action as the Supplier may reasonably request to avoid, dispute, compromise or defend the
          Claim.

        may at its sole option and expense:

          the Supplier modifies or replaces the Software, the modified or replacement Software must comply with the
          warranties contained in clause 27 and the Customer shall have the same rights in respect thereof as it
          would have had under those clauses had the references to the date of the Licence been references to the
          date on which such modification or replacement was made.
      5. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, clause 28.2 shall not apply to the extent that any claim or
        action referred to in that clause arises directly or indirectly through the possession, use, development, modification or
        maintenance of any Open-Source Software incorporated into the Software or through the breach of any Third- Party
        Licence relating to any Open-Source Software so incorporated.
      6. This clause 28 constitutes the Customer’s exclusive remedy and the Supplier’s only liability in respect of Claims and,
