Hello! This page explains the terms of using eVit's website and software.

These terms apply to the software with which they are distributed, including the media on which you received it, if any. The terms also apply to any GB Wines software updates, supplements, and support services for the software that GB Wines may supply to you, unless other terms accompany those items. If so, those terms apply.

By using the software, you confirm that you have a valid Order Confirmation for every copy of the software that you use and that you accept these terms in connection with each copy. If you do not accept these terms, do not use the software.  By using the software, you accept and agree to abide by this agreement.

The parties agree as follows:

    1.    Definitions. 

a. “Product” shall mean the executable version(s) of GB Wines’ existing computer software as explicitly identified in the Order Confirmation(s) (as defined in Section 3(a)) governed by this Agreement and as made available to Licensee, including all updates and new releases of the Product made available to Licensee under this Agreement and the applicable end-user documentation. 

b. “Proprietary Information” means all inventions, algorithms, know-how and ideas and all other business, technical and financial information a party obtains from the other party if: a) identified as confidential or proprietary at or before disclosure, or b) a reasonable person would presume such information to be confidential given the content or circumstances of the disclosure.

b. “Proprietary Rights” shall mean patent rights, copyrights, trade secret rights, sui generis database rights and all other intellectual and industrial property rights of any sort.

    2.    License Grant.

a. Subject to full payment under Section 3 and to Licensee’s compliance with the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, GB Wines grants to Licensee, and only Licensee, under all Proprietary Rights of GB Wines, a limited, non-exclusive, fully paid-up license only to reproduce and internally use for Licensee’s benefit the Quantity of Purchased Licenses of the Product only for the applicable License Term(s) specified in each Order Confirmation (as defined in Section 3(a)).  

b. The foregoing license does not allow any sublicense, distribution or disclosure of the Product to any third party and Licensee agrees that it will not engage in any such sublicensing, disclosure or distribution.

c. Licensee shall not (and shall not allow its personnel or any third party to): (i) modify or create derivative works of the Product; (ii) reverse engineer or attempt to discover any source code or underlying ideas or algorithms of the Product (except to the extent that applicable law prohibits reverse engineering restrictions), (iii) remove or alter any product identification, trademark, copyright or other notices embedded within or appearing within or on the Product; or (iv) publish or otherwise distribute the results of benchmarking or performance studies to third parties without GB Wines’ prior written consent. Licensee shall be solely responsible for the observance and compliance with all terms and conditions hereunder by its employees, contractors, service providers and agents and any other third party who has been permitted access to the Product as a result of Licensee’s action or inaction. Licensee shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend GB Wines and its licensors from and against any claims or suits, including attorneys' fees and expenses, which arise or result from any unauthorized or illegal use or distribution of the Product.

d. The Product includes open source software packages (collectively, the “Open Source Software”).  Each open source software package included in the Product is made available to Licensee in accordance with its applicable open source software package license.  In the event of any conflict between an open source software package license and the text of this Agreement, the open source software package license shall control with respect to that specific open source package only. 

    3. Price; Payment; Records. 

a. During the term of this Agreement, Licensee may place requests for additional Purchased Licenses by submitting orders to GB Wines.  GB Wines will respond with a formalized and accepted order confirming the number of Purchased Licenses, the License Term, the total price, and any taxes due (each such form, an “Order Confirmation”).  Each Order Confirmation is hereby incorporated into this Agreement in its entirety. Each Purchased License set forth on an Order Confirmation shall enable Licensee to create a single copy of the Product and use the copy of the Product in accordance with the License Grant set forth in Section 2. 

b. Licensee will pay to GB Wines all applicable fees set forth in each Order Confirmation (the “Fees”) within thirty (30) days of receipt of each Order Confirmation. The applicable currency will be stated on the Order Confirmation; otherwise it is US dollars. Fees are not refundable. Unless explicitly identified as Taxes on the Order Confirmation, all amounts due are exclusive of taxes, withholding, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (including without limitation VAT), excluding taxes on GB Wines’ net income (collectively, “Taxes”), and Licensee is responsible for payment of all Taxes. The parties will reasonably cooperate to lawfully minimize Taxes.  In the event Licensee does not pay GB Wines any portion of the Fees when due, Licensee shall also pay GB Wines a late payment fee in the amount of 1.5% of the total amount outstanding per month for the period any such Fees are delinquent.

At GB Wines’ request, Licensee will promptly provide such Records to GB Wines for the purpose of verifying compliance with this Agreement. In the event that Licensee fails to create, maintain or deliver Records as required under this Section or in the event of any dispute as to the accuracy of such Records, GB Wines may audit Licensee’s use of the Product (e.g., via review of copies of applicable log files, etc.), at any location in which the Product is or has been installed or otherwise utilized by Licensee.

    4. Delivery and Support.

a. After delivery of the first Order Confirmation under this Agreement, GB Wines will promptly deliver to Licensee one copy of the Product in executable form.

b. Unless contractually or legally prohibited from doing so, GB Wines will provide Licensee at no cost with updates and new releases of the Product that it makes generally commercially available to GB Wines’ customers in connection with its lowest list price, provided Licensee has one or more Purchased Licenses that are in good standing under this Agreement. 

    5. Publicity; Agreement Disclosure; Trademarks. 

a. GB Wines shall have the right to reference Licensee as a customer without disclosing the terms of this Agreement. Except as required by law or otherwise set forth in this Agreement, all public announcements regarding the terms of this Agreement shall be coordinated between GB Wines and Licensee by mutual agreement. 

b. Except as otherwise specified herein, neither party may use any of the other party’s trademarks and service marks (“Marks”) except in accordance with written (including electronic communications) approval of the other party.  Licensee grants GB Wines a limited license to use Licensee’s Marks in accordance with Licensee’s Marks usage guidelines for the sole purpose of identifying Licensee as a customer.  The parties will not otherwise use or register (or make any filing with respect to) the other party’s Marks anywhere in the world.  Neither party will contest anywhere in the world the use by or authorization by the other party of any of such party’s Marks. No other right or license with respect to any trademark, trade name, or other designation is granted under this Agreement.

    6. Prohibition Against Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any rights, licenses or obligations hereunder, may be assigned by either party without the prior written approval of the non-assigning party; any prohibited purported assignment shall be void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign this Agreement or delegate its rights and obligations to any acquirer of all or of substantially all of such party's assets or business or equity securities pertaining to the subject matter of this Agreement, provided however, that in the event of any such assignment, upon receipt of notice of assignment, the non-assigning party shall have a period of thirty days to terminate this Agreement upon written notice. 

    7. Term of Agreement. The term of this Agreement shall run until expired as set forth in the last to expire valid electronic license file you receive from GB Wines (the “Initial Term”).  At the end of the then current Term, unless written notice of intention not to renew is delivered by one party to the other party on or before thirty (30) days before the end of the Term, the Agreement shall automatically renew for an additional one year term (each a “Renewal Term” and collectively with the “Initial Term” the “Term”).  This Agreement may be terminated if either party materially fails to perform or comply with this Agreement or any material provision hereof. Termination shall be effective thirty (30) days after notice of termination to the defaulting party if the defaults have not been cured within such thirty (30) day period.  

    8. Survival. Rights to payment, Sections 1, 2(b-d), 3(b), 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (b-d), and 14 and, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, any right of action for breach of this Agreement prior to termination shall survive any termination of this Agreement.  In the event of termination for GB Wines’ breach, all Purchased Licenses shall survive termination until the end of the applicable License Term.  In the event of termination for Licensee’s breach, all Purchased Licenses shall immediately terminate. 

    9. Notices and Requests. All notices, consents, authorizations, and requests in connection with this Agreement shall be deemed given immediately after they are sent by air express courier, charges prepaid; and addressed with Attention to the Legal Department to the applicable address set forth in the most recent Order Confirmation governed by this Agreement or to such other address as the party to receive the notice or request so designates by written notice under this Section 9 to the other.

    10. Controlling Law; Attorney’s Fees. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of California and the United States without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions and without regard to UCITA or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The sole jurisdiction and venue for actions related to the subject matter hereof shall be the California state and U.S. federal courts in Santa Clara County, California. Both parties consent to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts and agree that process may be served in the manner provided herein for giving of notices or otherwise as allowed by California or federal law.  The prevailing party in any dispute shall be entitled to recover its reasonable costs attorneys’ fees, and other expenses. 

    11. Confidentiality

a. The pricing terms of this Agreement, the Product and underlying inventions, algorithms, know-how and ideas are hereby identified as GB Wines’ Proprietary Information.  The information that Licensee enters into the Product is presumed to be Licensee’s Proprietary Information unless GB Wines can show that (i) such information was already publicly available, (ii) it already knew such information; or (iii) it learned or otherwise independently developed such information without breach of this Agreement.  Except as expressly and unambiguously allowed herein, each party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Proprietary Information of the other party except as necessary to accomplish its obligations or enjoy its rights under this Agreement and its employees and contractors will be similarly bound in writing.

Accordingly, a party will be entitled to seek injunctions and other equitable remedies in the event of such a breach by the other.

    12. Limited Liability. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED BELOW, AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE IN THIS AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE OR OBLIGATED UNDER ANY SECTION OF THIS AGREEMENT OR UNDER CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (A) FOR ANY AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF THE AGGREGATE OF THE LICENSE FEES PAID TO IT (IN THE CASE OF GB Wines) OR (IN THE CASE OF LICENSEE) PAID OR OWED BY IT HEREUNDER, OR (B) ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS (EXCEPT AMOUNTS PAYABLE UNDER SECTION 3) OR LOST OR CORRUPTED DATA OR INTERRUPTED USE OR (C) COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, TECHNOLOGY OR SERVICES. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 12 SHALL NOT APPLY TO BREACHES OF SECTIONS 2(b-e) AND 11 OR TO ACTIONS OF LICENSEE BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THE LICENSE GRANT HEREUNDER. 

    13. Warranty

a. GB Wines warrants to Licensee that the Product will be of good quality and developed using good workmanship in accordance with the highest professional standards.

d. EACH PARTY RECOGNIZES AND AGREES THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIABILITY AND REMEDY LIMITATIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE MATERIAL BARGAINED FOR BASES OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT AND REFLECTED IN DETERMINING THE CONSIDERATION TO BE GIVEN BY EACH PARTY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AND IN THE DECISION BY EACH PARTY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.
