These rights may not be transferred or sublicensed by Developer.

Without limiting Developer’s permitted activities in Section 2.4 (White Labeling), the parties acknowledge and agree that Oracle will: (a) operate the LightCMS Service, and (b) provide the LightCMS Service to Developer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, as to each Website and Developer Customer, Developer will be solely responsible for ongoing activities related to billing and collection of fees and refunds as further set forth in Section 3 (Orders and Payment) below.

2.5 Developer Services. If Developer resells the LightCMS Service to Developer Customers as part of a package of services or offerings (“Developer Services”), Developer will remain solely responsible and liable for all Developer Services. Developer must have all necessary experience, skills and resources to successfully complete any Developer Services.

Developer will comply with and will ensure that each Website User complies with the terms of this Agreement and the Terms of Service and shall be fully liable to Oracle for all Website Users’ use of the LightCMS Service and/or Website(s). Oracle recommends that Developer incorporate terms consistent with or at least as restrictive as the Terms of Service into its agreements with Developer Customers. However, Developer’s failure to incorporate such terms into its agreements with Developer Customers shall not relieve Developer of its liability to Oracle for its Website Users’ use of the LightCMS Service. If there is a conflict between the Terms of Service and this Agreement, the Terms of Service shall prevail.
2.8 General Restrictions. Developer shall not (and shall not permit any Website User or other third party) to: (a) rent, lease, copy, provide access to or sublicense the LightCMS Service to a third party, except as expressly permitted hereunder; (b) incorporate the LightCMS Service (or any part thereof) into another product or service or otherwise use the LightCMS Service (or any part thereof) to provide any product or a service to a third-party, except as expressly permitted herein; (c) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise seek to obtain the source code or non-public APIs to the LightCMS Service; (d) modify the LightCMS Service or any Documentation or create any derivative product from any of the foregoing, except as expressly permitted in Section 2.4 (White-Labeling); (e) remove or obscure any product identification, proprietary, copyright or other notices contained in the LightCMS Service (including any reports or data printed from the LightCMS Service); or (f) publicly disseminate information or analysis regarding the performance of the LightCMS Service.

Any additional or different terms set forth on any Developer documentation with Developer Customers will not be binding upon Oracle and Developer will be solely liable for any claims arising from such unauthorized terms.

Developer is responsible for Taxes based on gross revenues or gross receipts imposed by a foreign tax authority on payments due to Oracle for the LightCMS Service. If Oracle has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Developer is responsible under this Section, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by Developer unless Developer provides Oracle with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
3.3 Developer Customer Pricing; Collection. Developer will independently determine the pricing and fees at which it offers the LightCMS Service to Developer Customers. Developer will be solely responsible for collecting all fees for any use of the LightCMS Service and Websites. Non-payment by Developer Customers shall not relieve Developer of its obligation to pay Fees to Oracle. Oracle reserves the right to cancel or suspend the LightCMS Service with respect to the Developer or Website User(s) if Oracle does not receive payment from Developer with respect to use of any Website. If the Account credit card is declined when a charge is attempted, Oracle will email Developer to warn Developer that the card must be updated. After a series of these messages is delivered, if the issue is still unresolved, all websites under the Account are disabled until Developer resolves the situation.
4. Developer Obligations

Developer may use the specific Oracle Marks identified by Oracle for such purpose in Developer’s marketing and advertising of the LightCMS Service, provided Developer receives advance approval in writing for each such marketing, advertising or other promotional material which uses a Oracle Mark (or otherwise describes the LightCMS Service) and Developer otherwise complies with the terms of this Section.

Oracle recommends that the main and billing contact email addresses be group addresses (such as firstname.lastname@example.org) so that notices are reviewed promptly and not delayed due to the absence of one individual.

Amendments; Waivers. Except as may be otherwise expressly set forth herein, no supplement, modification, or amendment of this Agreement shall be binding, unless executed in writing by a duly authorized representative of each party to this Agreement.

Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in effect.
Independent Contractors. The parties to this Agreement are independent contractors. There is no relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency created hereby between the parties.

Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement (except for a failure to pay Fees) if the delay or failure is due to unforeseen events, which occur after the signing of this Agreement and which are beyond the reasonable control of such party, such as a strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of power or telecommunications or data networks or services, or refusal of a license by a government agency, insofar as such an event prevents or delays the affected party from fulfilling its obligations and such party is not able to prevent or remove the force majeure at reasonable cost.
