Notwithstanding such assignment, the Technology shall remain subject to the provisions of section 2.2.
|3.4||Accounting and Records|
|a)||The Royalty payments under Section 3.2 are to be paid by Licensee to CASHMAN on a quarterly basis and shall be made within thirty (30) days after the end of the Calendar Quarter of each year during the term of this Agreement.|
|b)||The Parties acknowledge that the royalties and fees payable hereunder for all sales of Licensed Products within Canada are subject to the Canadian Goods and Services Tax (“GST”). Licensee hereby agrees to remit such amounts to CASHMAN as required under Canadian GST legislation.|
|c)||Royalties shall be paid to CASHMAN free and clear of all taxes including income and turn-over taxes, except such taxes as the Licensee shall be required by law to withhold.|
|d)||Licensee agrees to keep complete and accurate books of account in which the particulars of all sales of Licensed Product are recorded in sufficient detail to enable royalties payable hereunder to be determined.|
|e)||CASHMAN, or their authorized representatives, shall have the right from time to time, upon forty five (45) days prior written notice to Licensee, to audit Licensee’s said books and records of accounts and all of the documents and other materials in the possession or under the control of Licensee with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. CASHMAN reserves the right to confirm any information learned in the course of such audit with individuals or corporations that have purchased a Licensed Product from Licensee to verify the accuracy of Licensee’s royalty payments and compliance with the terms hereunder. Licensee shall preserve and keep available to CASHMAN all such books and records, documents, contracts, and other data with respect thereto for a period of six (6) years.|
|f)||In the event that any audit of the books and records of Licensee reveals an error in excess of ten percent (10%) to the detriment of CASHMAN, then Licensee shall bear all the costs of said examination and pay forthwith all outstanding amounts together with the appropriate interest thereon. Further, in the event of an error in excess of ten percent (10%) to the detriment of CASHMAN, CASHMAN may terminate this Agreement according to Section 6.2 herein.|
|g)||Each royalty payment hereunder shall be accompanied by a statement of the Net Sales certified correct by the chief financial officer of Licensee.

|h)||Interest shall be payable on any amounts owed by one Party to another Party which are not paid when due, at the Prime Rate plus 3% per annum, compounded monthly. The payment of interest shall not be deemed an alternative to the payment of amounts owing on the due dates, which payment shall be deemed to be in default, and if such default is not remedied within thirty (30) days of written notice thereof, CASHMAN may terminate this Agreement as provided in Section 6.2 herein.|
CASHMAN shall furnish the Know-how and Original Material to Licensee within a reasonable period of time following the execution of this Agreement.
|4.2||Patents and Patent Applications|
|a)||Licensee, in the name of CASHMAN, shall file, prosecute and maintain the Patents. Licensee, in consultation with CASHMAN, shall determine in which countries to pursue patent applications. In the event that Licensee elects not to support a patent application or to continue prosecution in any country, CASHMAN may, at its sole discretion, file such patent or continue such prosecution in that country at its own expense. In such a case, Licensee would not have any rights to, or in, any patents arising from such applications.|
|b)||Licensee undertakes to keep CASHMAN reasonably advised of the progress of prosecution and of any actions Licensee proposes to take or has taken in connection with the prosecution or maintenance of the Patents.

Either Party hereto shall inform the other Party promptly of any patent filings associated with the Improvements. Licensee agrees to pay all expenses associated with the filing and prosecution of such patent applications that are owned and controlled by CASHMAN. Such applications shall then be included in the definition of Patents. If Licensee elects not to pay all expenses associated with the filing and prosecution of such patent applications for such Improvements, CASHMAN shall have the right to apply for patents at its own expense, and Licensee shall have no rights to any patents resulting from such applications. It is understood that Licensee shall not be obligated to undertake responsibility with respect to any such Improvements or developments unless it elects to do so.
Each Party shall notify the other Party promptly of any infringement, limitation or unauthorized use of any Patents by a Third Party of which such Party becomes aware.
Licensee shall have the sole right, at its own expense to bring any action on account of any such infringements, limitations or unauthorized use of the Patents. CASHMAN agrees, at the request of Licensee, to execute the writ and such other papers as may require the signature of CASHMAN in the prosecution of such suit, and to render to Licensee all reasonable assistance in the prosecution of such suit. Licensee agrees to reimburse CASHMAN for its reasonable expenses incurred in complying with any such request of Licensee. Finally, CASHMAN shall have the right to be represented in the litigation by counsel of CASHMAN’s choice, but at CASHMAN’s own expense. Licensee shall be entitled to keep all the proceeds obtained from such a suit or settlement resulting from such suit and CASHMAN shall receive 8% of the proceeds of any judgment or settlement less the legal fees and costs incurred by Licensor in connection with such suit. If Licensee does not undertake such action, it shall notify CASHMAN of its election within sixty (60) days following the receipt of notice of such infringement. CASHMAN may then prosecute the same, at its expense, provided that CASHMAN notifies Licensee of CASHMAN’s intention to file suit at least fifteen (15) days prior to filing thereof. In such event, unless Licensee then notifies CASHMAN within such fifteen (15) day period that Licensee agrees to bear one-half of the expense of prosecuting such suit, all recoveries had or obtained in such suit shall be the sole property of CASHMAN whereby no settlement will be made without the prior written approval of Licensee. If Licensee notifies CASHMAN that Licensee agrees to bear one-half of such expenses, and if Licensee pays CASHMAN from time to time as expenses are incurred, then all recoveries had or obtained in such suit shall be divided equally between CASHMAN and Licensee.
CASHMAN will defend, at its expense, any suit against Licensee to the extent it is based on a claim that use of the Technology as permitted hereunder in the Territory infringes any patent applicable in the Territory. Further, CASHMAN will pay those damages or costs finally awarded by a court or tribunal of final appeal against Licensee in such action which are attributable to such claim, provided that Licensee:
|·||notifies CASHMAN promptly in writing of any such action and all prior related claims;|
|·||gives CASHMAN sole control of the defense of same and all negotiations for its settlement or compromise; and|
|·||provides to CASHMAN, at CASHMAN’s expense, all available information, assistance and authority to make such defense.|
|a)||Confidential Information is the property of the Party disclosing it, and the ownership of any and all right, title and interest therein, including all intellectual property rights, shall at all times remain exclusively vested in the disclosing party.|
|b)||For a period of three (3) years from the date of disclosure of Confidential Information, each Party agrees to maintain in confidence all Confidential Information disclosed with the same degree of care as it normally takes to preserve its own confidential information of similar grade, but in any event, no less than a reasonable degree of care.|
|c)||Each Party may only disclose Confidential Information to persons with a “need to know” who have written obligations of confidence, and the Confidential Information shall only be used to carry on or facilitate business as contemplated under this Agreement.|
|d)||d) A Party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to the requirements of a government agency or pursuant to a court order, provided that the Party shall take all reasonable steps, including, but not limited to the seeking of an appropriate protective order, to preserve the confidentiality of the Confidential Information provided.|
|e)||If this Agreement is terminated for any reason, any Party in receipt of Confidential Information shall promptly deliver or destroy all Confidential Information of the disclosing Party without retaining copies thereof, except where such copies are required for audit, inspection or legal proceeding arising from this Agreement.|
