The Indemnified Party will give the Indemnifying Party full control of the defense and settlement of the Claim as long as such settlement does not include a financial obligation on or admission of liability by the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnified Party does not do so, then the Indemnified Party waives the Indemnifying Party’s indemnification obligations under section 1.10.1 or 1.10.2, as applicable. The Indemnified Party will reasonably cooperate in the defense of the Claim and may appear, at its own expense, through counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnifying Party.

However, neither party will have an obligation to maintain the confidentiality of information that (a) it received rightfully from a third party without an obligation to maintain such information in confidence; (b) was known to the receiving party prior to its disclosure by the disclosing party; (c) is or becomes a matter of public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; or (d) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the confidential information of the disclosing party. Further, either party may disclose confidential information of the other party as required by governmental or judicial order, provided such party gives the other party prompt written notice prior to such disclosure (unless such prior notice is not permitted by applicable law) and complies with any protective order (or equivalent) imposed on such disclosure. You will treat any source code for the Product as our confidential information and will not disclose, disseminate or distribute such materials to any third party without our prior written permission. Each party’s obligations under this section 1.11 will apply during the term of this EULA and for five (5) years following termination of this EULA, provided, however, that (i) obligations with respect to source code will survive forever and (ii) trade secrets will be maintained as such until they fall into the public domain.
1.11.2. Product Benchmark Results.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Definitions. Any defined term used in this Exhibit A but not defined herein will have the meaning ascribed to it in any of the following sections of this EULA: section 1 (General Terms and Conditions), section 2.A (Terms for On-Premise Products) (as applicable for Professional Services associated with On-Premise Products), section 2.B (Terms for Hosted Services)(as applicable for Professional Services associated with Hosted Services), section 3 (Product Family Specific Terms) or section 4 (Product Specific Terms). In the event of conflict among the defined terms, the order of precedence shall be: first, this Exhibit A; and then the sections listed in the previous sentence in the reverse order (e.g., section 4 (Product Specific Terms), section 3 (Product Family Specific Terms), and so on).
1.1. “Deliverables” has the meaning given to it in section 6.2 of this Exhibit A (Ownership of Deliverables and Other Works of Authorship).
1.2. “Professional Services Warranty Period” has the meaning given to it in section 7 of this Exhibit A (Professional Services Warranty and Disclaimer).
1.3. “Progress Proprietary Items” means any of Our Technology, Product Usage and Technical Support Data, or work, materials, or other tangible or intangible property used by us in the course of performance of Professional Services under this EULA and this Exhibit A or any Order that is (i) not a Deliverable; or (ii) developed by us independently of the Professional Services performed pursuant to this Exhibit A. Inclusion of any Progress Proprietary Item in a Deliverable does not change its character as a Progress Proprietary Item.
2. Orders, Professional Services and Change Orders.
2.1. Professional Services. We will perform the Professional Services detailed in any Order. Each Order referencing Professional Services will set forth a description of the work to be performed, fees, time schedules and other special terms and conditions applicable to the project.
2.2. Change Orders. Any modifications to the Professional Services set forth in an Order, and any fees or other terms associated with such modifications, will be memorialized in an amendment to the Order or a replacement Order accepted by you and us as evidenced by signature of an authorized representative of each party on the applicable amendment or replacement Order. No modifications to the Professional Services set forth in an Order will be effective, and we will not have any obligation to implement the modifications to the Professional Services, until accepted by you and us in accordance with this paragraph.
3. Personnel and Your Responsibilities.
3.1. Personnel. We will perform the Professional Services using our employees, subcontractors or agents, as we in our sole discretion deem appropriate. We will remain responsible to you for the actions of our employees, subcontractors or agents, when so used.
3.1.1. Non-Solicit. We and you agree that our and your respective employees and subcontractors are a valuable asset to our and your respective organizations and are difficult to replace. Accordingly, during the term of the Professional Services engagement described in the Order and for a period of one (1) year thereafter, neither we nor you will solicit, whether directly or indirectly, the employment of any of the other party’s employees or subcontractors who are, or who were engaged or employed in the provision or receipt of the Professional Services without the prior written consent of the other party. If either party violates this section 3.1.1, we and you agree that the violating party of this section will pay to the other party an amount equal to one (1) year of annual compensation of such employee or subcontractor, which amount will be payable at the time such action occurs. For purposes of this section 3.1.1, “one year of annual compensation” will be calculated by multiplying two thousand (2,000) by the hourly rate derived from the Order. If the applicable Order includes multiple resources and hourly rates, then the parties will use the average of the hourly rates referenced in the applicable Order. If the applicable Order is for a fixed fee with no hours listed, then our list hourly rate(s) applicable for our personnel performing the Professional Services will be used and, in accordance with the above, if there are multiple personnel providing Professional Services under the applicable Order with differing list hourly rate(s), then the average of the list hourly rates will be used to complete the calculation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this section 3.1.1 will not preclude either party from interviewing, making an offer of employment or other engagement, or hiring any person who responds to a general publicly available advertisement or solicitation initiated by or on behalf of either party, such as a website posting or referral from an employment agency.
3.1.2. Independent Contractor Status; No Agency. We, at all times, will be an independent contractor providing Professional Services to you pursuant to this EULA and this Exhibit A. Those performing Professional Services on behalf of us hereunder, as set forth in the applicable Order or otherwise, will be employees or subcontractors of us or our Affiliates. Neither us or our Affiliates nor any employee or subcontractor of us or our Affiliates providing Professional Services will represent to third parties that we, our Affiliates or said employee or subcontractor is an employee or agent of yours in the provision of Professional Services under this EULA and this Exhibit A. Nothing in this EULA or this Exhibit A will give you control over the manner in which we, our Affiliates or any employee or subcontractor of us or our Affiliates provides such Professional Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree to provide us or our Affiliates, to the extent applicable, a safe and satisfactory work environment for our personnel, as well as other services or materials such personnel may reasonably request in order to perform the Professional Services.
3.2. Your Responsibilities. You understand your business needs and have determined independently that the Deliverables and Professional Services will meet your needs.
4. Fees; Costs and Expenses.
4.1. Fees for Professional Services. For Professional Services designated as “fixed fee” in the Order, we will invoice you upon execution of the applicable Order. For Professional Services not designated as “fixed fee” in the Order, we will invoice you monthly in arrears based on actual hours worked and expenses incurred during the preceding month. Unless the applicable Order provides otherwise, Professional Services fees designated as “fixed fee” are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable.
4.2. Costs and Expenses. You will reimburse us for any reasonable expenses incurred by us in the performance of the Professional Services, including without limitation, travel and lodging expenses.
5. Acceptance of Professional Services. Unless otherwise expressly stated in the Order, all Professional Services will be deemed accepted upon performance and all Deliverables will be deemed accepted upon delivery.
6. Proprietary Rights.
6.1. Progress Proprietary Items. You will have or obtain no rights in Progress Proprietary Items (or in any modifications or enhancements to them or any derivative work within the meaning of the US Copyright Act) except that, to the extent that we incorporate the Progress Proprietary Items into a Deliverable, we will grant you a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license in such Progress Proprietary Items to use them as part of (but not unbundled from) the Deliverable. All other Intellectual Property Rights in and to the Progress Proprietary Items will remain in and/or are hereby assigned to us.
6.2. Ownership of Deliverables and Other Works of Authorship. Should the Professional Services set forth in an Order result in any reports, work product or other tangible items identified in an Order as a deliverable (“Deliverables”), unless otherwise provided in an Order, we grant you a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use the Deliverables for your internal use. Other than the limited license to the Deliverables contained herein or as otherwise set forth in an Order, we will own and retain all right, title and interest, express or implied, in and to any Deliverables created during the course of providing Professional Services and to all other works of authorship of any kind or nature prepared, created or conceived by us (or our employees, subcontractors or agents) in the performance of the Professional Services, exclusive of any Confidential Information of yours incorporated therein. We will not own or have any right, title or interest in or to your Confidential Information, whether by assignment, license or otherwise.
6.3. Residuals/Items of General Knowledge. We may use our general knowledge, skills and experience, and any ideas, concepts, know-how, and techniques within the scope of our professional services practice in the course of providing the Professional Services, including information publicly known or available or that could reasonably be acquired in similar work performed for another customer of ours. In no event will we be precluded from developing for ourselves, or for others, materials that are competitive with the Deliverables, irrespective of their similarity to the Deliverables, provided this is done without use of your Confidential Information.
7. Professional Services Warranty and Disclaimer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 1.9 of the EULA (Warranties), we warrant to you that for a period of sixty (60) days after our performance of the Professional Services or delivery of the Deliverables (the “Professional Services Warranty Period”): (i) the Professional Services will be performed in a good and workmanlike manner; and (ii) the Deliverables will conform in all material respects to the applicable specifications identified in an Order. Our sole obligation under the limited warranty set forth in this section 7 is to use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any Professional Services or Deliverables that do not comply with the warranties set forth in this section 7 (e.g., by reperformance of any noncomplying Professional Services or modifying any noncomplying Deliverables), provided that you give us written notice of the noncompliance within the Professional Services Warranty Period. If, after the expenditure of commercially reasonable efforts, we are unable to correct the noncompliance, we may choose to refund an equitable portion (e.g., based upon the value of your actual use of the applicable Deliverable(s) or any benefits received by you) of the fee paid by you for such Professional Services or Deliverables, whereupon your rights in and to any such nonconforming Professional Services or Deliverables will be terminated. Except for the express warranty set forth in this section 7, the warranty exclusions and disclaimers specified in sections 1.9.3 of the EULA (Warranty Exclusions) and 1.9.4 of the EULA (Warranty Disclaimers) apply to the Professional Services provided by us to you pursuant to this Exhibit A and any Order.
8. Term; Termination.
8.1. The terms of this Exhibit A will remain in effect until termination in accordance with section 8.2 of this Exhibit A.
8.2.1. Termination of the EULA. The terms of this Exhibit A, and any outstanding Professional Services engagements set forth in any Order(s), will automatically terminate in the event of termination of this EULA in accordance with section 1.15.1 (Termination for Breach). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 1.15.1 of the EULA, we may not terminate this EULA or your license(s) to the Product(s) granted under this EULA, or the parties’ respective rights and obligations associated therewith, pursuant to section 1.15.1 (Termination for Breach) if the nature of your breach is solely related to the Professional Services engagement set forth in an Order.
8.2.2. Termination of Professional Services for Breach. Either party may terminate any Professional Services engagement set forth in any Order by written notice to the other party if the other party materially breaches its obligations under this Exhibit A or the applicable Order in relation to such Professional Services engagement and, where such breach is curable, fails to cure such breach to the non-breaching party’s reasonable satisfaction within thirty (30) days after such notice. Your failure to pay any fees owing to us for the Professional Services as provided in Section 1.8.1 of the EULA (Payment Terms and Taxes) is a material breach for which we may terminate the Professional Services under the applicable Order(s) pursuant to this section 8.2.2 immediately upon written notice. The remedy specified in this section 8.2.2 will not be exclusive and will be in addition to any other remedies which the non-breaching party may have under this EULA or otherwise.
8.2.3. Effect of Termination of Professional Services.
18.104.22.168. We will have no obligation to perform any Professional Services under a terminated Professional Services engagement set forth in an Order after the effective date of the termination.
22.214.171.124. In the event of termination of any Professional Services engagement(s) set forth in one or more Order(s) in accordance with section 8.2.2 of this Exhibit A, you agree that you will pay all fees, reimbursable expenses, compensation or other amounts payable to us pursuant to section 4 of this Exhibit A and the applicable Order for all Professional Services performed by us up to and including the date of termination of the Professional Services under the applicable Order(s).
