Specifically, Evisions grants Customer unlimited access and use of the Products by staff, faculty, students, contractors and Customer Affiliates (together, “Authorized Users”) working at, with or for Customer. Under this Agreement, Customer may not make the Products available to any other entities, institutions or other third parties beyond the Authorized Users.

2.4 Customer may not assign its rights under this Agreement to a third party.
2.5 Evisions may, with seven (7) days written notice to Customer, suspend availability of or use of all or any portion of the Products at any time if Evisions should reasonably determine that Customer is in material breach of Sections 2.1-2.4 of this Agreement.

If the error is material to the operation of the Service or Products and Evisions is unable to fix the error after making commercially reasonable efforts as set forth herein, then Evisions has the right to terminate this Agreement and refund the pro rata portion of the fees for the unused portion of the Term.

3.5 Upon notice to and approval by Customer, which approval shall not unreasonably be withheld, Evisions may subcontract to a third party or parties any and all tasks or services to be provided under this Agreement and Evisions may sublicense to such third party or parties the rights licensed to Evisions pursuant to Section 3.4 for the sole purpose of enabling such parties to host, support, deliver, enhance or maintain the Hosting Facility and the Products. In the event Evisions subcontracts for the delivery of any such services, Evisions shall remain responsible to Customer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and impose restrictions and obligations on any such third party comparable to the restrictions and obligations imposed on Evisions hereunder.

7.2 If a third party infringement claim is asserted in relation to the Service or Products, or if Evisions believes such a claim is likely to be asserted, Evisions may at its option and expense either: (a) replace or modify the Products or alter the Service so that it becomes non-infringing; or (b) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Products and Service. If neither of the foregoing alternatives is reasonably available, Evisions may terminate availability of the Service and/or Products and, in such event, Evisions shall refund to Customer a proportional amount of the fees paid therefore.
8. Customer Indemnification.
Customer will indemnify and hold Evisions harmless from and against any and all expenses, losses, damages or liabilities (including reasonable attorney fees) arising out of or relating to any third party claims, demands, or suits arising from or relating to Customer Data, Customer’s misuse or abuse of the Service and Products.
