Other agreements; software, services or access
IIEM may provide products (such as hardware or software) services (such as hardware maintenance or repair or software maintenance, installation, or training) or access to IIEM Websites under the terms of a separate agreement between you and IIEM (each, an “Other Agreement”). IIEM’s obligations with respect to any product, service, or access that it makes available to you under any Other Agreement shall be governed solely by the Other Agreement under which such product or service is provided and these Terms shall not be deemed or construed to alter the terms of such Other Agreements.
For example, the use of any software that is made available to download from the IIEM Websites ("Software") is governed by the terms of the end user license agreement, if any, which accompanies or is included with the Software ("License Agreement"). You may not install any Software that is accompanied by or includes a License Agreement unless you first have agreed to the License Agreement terms. If no end user license agreement accompanies or is included with the Software, then such Software shall be deemed to be Materials hereunder and these Terms shall govern your use of such Software. FURTHER REPRODUCTION OR REDISTRIBUTION OF ANY SOFTWARE IS EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED, UNLESS SUCH REPRODUCTION OR REDISTRIBUTION IS EXPRESSLY PERMITTED BY THE LICENSE AGREEMENT ACCOMPANYING OR INCLUDED WITH SUCH SOFTWARE.

Ownership of all such trademarks and the goodwill associated therewith remains with IIEM or the applicable trademark holder. You may not use any metatags or any other "hidden text" utilizing any name, trademark, or product or service name of IIEM without IIEM’s prior written permission. In addition, the look and feel of the Site (including all page headers, custom graphics, button icons, and scripts) is the service mark, trademark, and/or trade dress of IIEM and may not be copied, imitated, or used (in whole or in part) without IIEM’s prior written permission. Reference to any products, services, processes, or other information, by trade name, trademark, or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation thereof by IIEM.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the IIEM Parties from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that such parties may incur as a result of or arising from your (or anyone using your account’s) violation of these Terms. IIEM reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with IIEM’s defense of such claim.
When you visit the Site or send e-mails to IIEM, you are communicating with IIEM electronically. We may respond to you by e-mail or by posting notices on the Site. You agree that all such notices, disclosures, and other communications that IIEM provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
These Terms, together with any additional terms to which you agree when using particular elements of the IIEM Websites, constitute the entire and exclusive and final statement of the agreement between you and IIEM with respect to the subject matter hereof, superseding any prior agreements or negotiations between you and IIEM with respect to such subject matter. The IIEM Parties are third party beneficiaries with respect to the provisions in these Terms that reference them. These Terms and the relationship between you and IIEM shall be governed by the laws of the State of California as applied to agreements made, entered into, and performed entirely in California by California residents, notwithstanding your actual place of residence. All lawsuits arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of the IIEM Websites shall be brought in the Federal or State courts located in Santa Clara County, California, and you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose. The failure of IIEM to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the intentions of IIEM and you as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. These Terms shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the IIEM Websites. These Terms will be interpreted without application of any strict construction in favor of or against you or IIEM. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by IIEM without restriction.

If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to cease using the IIEM Websites. Continued use of the IIEM Websites following notice of any such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. Certain provisions of these Terms may be superseded by expressly-designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of the IIEM Websites and, in such circumstances, the expressly-designated legal notice or term shall be deemed to be incorporated into these Terms and to supersede the provision(s) of these Terms that are designated as being superseded.
