disclaim any express
or implied warranty of fitness for such uses. (k) No

interest in or to any trademark, service mark, logo or
trade name of
Sun or its licensors is granted under this Agreement.

6. Term and Termination.

The license and service term are set forth in your
Entitlement(s). Your
rights under this Agreement will terminate immediately
without notice
from Sun if you materially breach it or take any
action in derogation
of Sun's and/or its licensors' rights to Software. Sun
may terminate
this Agreement should any Software become, or in Sun's
reasonable
opinion likely to become, the subject of a claim of
intellectual
property infringement or trade secret
misappropriation. Upon
termination, you will cease use of, and destroy,
Software and confirm
compliance in writing to Sun. Sections 1, 5, 6, 7, and
9-15 will
survive termination of the Agreement.

7. Java Compatibility and Open Source.

Software may contain Java technology. You may not
create additional
classes to, or modifications of, the Java technology,
except under
compatibility requirements available under a separate
agreement
available at www.java.net.

Sun supports and benefits from the global community of
open source
developers, and thanks the community for its important
contributions
and open standards-based technology, which Sun has
adopted into many of
its products.

Please note that portions of Software may be provided
with notices and
open source licenses from such communities and third
parties that
govern the use of those portions, and any licenses
granted hereunder do
not alter any rights and obligations you may have
under such open
source licenses, however, the disclaimer of warranty
and limitation of
liability provisions in this Agreement will apply to
all Software in
this distribution.

8. Limited Warranty.

Sun warrants to you that for a period of 90 days from
the date of
purchase, as evidenced by a copy of the receipt, the
media on which
Software is furnished (if any) will be free of defects
in materials and
workmanship under normal use. Except for the
foregoing, Software is
provided "AS IS". Your exclusive remedy and Sun's
entire liability
under this limited warranty will be at Sun's option to
replace Software
media or refund the fee paid for Software. Some states
do not allow
limitations on certain implied warranties, so the
above may not apply
to you. This limited warranty gives you specific legal
rights. You may
have others, which vary from state to state.

9. Disclaimer of Warranty.

UNLESS SPECIFIED IN THIS AGREEMENT, ALL EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED CONDITIONS,
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR
NON-INFRINGEMENT
ARE DISCLAIMED, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT THESE
DISCLAIMERS ARE HELD TO
BE LEGALLY INVALID.

10. Limitation of Liability.

TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL
SUN OR ITS
LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST REVENUE, PROFIT OR
DATA, OR FOR
SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
PUNITIVE DAMAGES,
HOWEVER CAUSED REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY,
ARISING OUT OF OR
RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE SOFTWARE,
EVEN IF SUN HAS
BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. In no
event will Sun's
liability to you, whether in contract, tort (including
negligence), or
otherwise, exceed the amount paid by you for Software
under this
Agreement. The foregoing limitations will apply even
if the above
stated warranty fails of its essential purpose. Some
states do not
allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential
damages, so some of
the terms above may not be applicable to you.

11. Export Regulations.

All Software, documents, technical data, and any other
materials
delivered under this Agreement are subject to U.S.
export control laws
and may be subject to export or import regulations in
other countries.

regulations and
acknowledge that you have the responsibility to obtain
any licenses to
export, re-export, or import as may be required after
delivery to you.

12. U.S. Government Restricted Rights.

If Software is being acquired by or on behalf of the
U.S. Government or
by a U.S. Government prime contractor or subcontractor
(at any tier),
then the Government's rights in Software and
accompanying documentation
will be only as set forth in this Agreement; this is
in accordance with
48 CFR 227.7201 through 227.7202-4 (for Department of
Defense (DOD)
acquisitions) and with 48 CFR 2.101 and 12.212 (for
non-DOD
acquisitions).

13. Governing Law.

Any action related to this Agreement will be governed
by California law
and controlling U.S. federal law. No choice of law
rules of any
jurisdiction will apply.

14. Severability.

If any provision of this Agreement is held to be
unenforceable, this
Agreement will remain in effect with the provision
omitted, unless
omission would frustrate the intent of the parties, in
which case this
Agreement will immediately terminate.

15. Integration.

This Agreement, including any terms contained in your
Entitlement, is
the entire agreement between you and Sun relating to
its subject
matter. It supersedes all prior or contemporaneous
oral or written
communications, proposals, representations and
warranties and prevails
over any conflicting or additional terms of any quote,
order,
acknowledgment, or other communication between the
parties relating to
its subject matter during the term of this Agreement.

of this Agreement will be binding, unless in writing
and signed by an
