Where Company notifies Jabil in writing that the Product is subject to Materials Declaration Requirements, Jabil will use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to assist Company in procuring parts, components and/or materials that are compliant with Materials Declaration Requirements. However, Company understands and agrees that:

4.7.1 Company is responsible for notifying Jabil in writing of the specific Materials Declaration Requirements that Company determines to be applicable to the Product and shall be solely liable for the adequacy and sufficiency of such determination and information;

4.7.2 Any information regarding Materials Declaration Requirements compliance of parts, components, packaging or materials used in the Products shall come from the relevant supplier. Jabil does not test, certify or otherwise warrant component, part, packaging or materials compliance, on a homogenous material level or any other level, with Materials Declaration Requirements; and

4.7.3 Company is ultimately and solely responsible for ensuring that any parts, components or materials used in the Products, as well as the Product itself, are compliant with applicable Materials Declaration Requirements.

Notwithstanding any other provision set forth in this Agreement, including amendments, attachments, or any other document incorporated herein, this Section 4.7 sets forth Jabil’s sole responsibility and liability and Company’s entire remedy from Jabil with respect to Materials Declaration Requirements and any third party claims against Company related to the Materials Declaration Requirements, and that absent this provision, Jabil would not enter this Agreement.

4.8 Equitable Adjustment. In the event Jabil’s cost of performance significantly changes (either increases or decreases) due to causes beyond its reasonable control, Jabil or Company shall be entitled to request an equitable adjustment to price and/or schedule on any open Build Schedules. Jabil will continue to perform in accordance with this Agreement as long as both parties continue to negotiate in good faith and implement adjustments through written change orders, or otherwise in accordance with Section 21.13. Upon request, the party requesting an adjustment shall provide to the other party reasonably detailed supporting documentation for the equitable adjustment it seeks.

4.9 On-going Cost Reductions. Jabil shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to achieve ongoing reductions in the costs of the bill of materials for the Products as further described in the SLA.

Company may add competitors to this Section 4.10 by written notice to Jabil. If Jabil already manufactures products at the Jabil Facility for an added Company competitor at the time of Company’s notice, Jabil will promptly inform Company in writing. In the event Jabil commences manufacturing of products at the Jabil Facility for the Company identified competitors, Jabil and Company agree to review Jabil’s processes for adhering to Section 13, Confidentiality.

4.11 Rush Orders. Company may, at its option, submit orders requesting immediate delivery within three (3) working days (“Rush Orders”). Jabil shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to fill Rush Orders. The parties shall negotiate in good faith the prices for Rush Orders, taking into consideration Jabil’s available inventory and additional personnel expense.

4.12 [***].

4.13 Allocation. Jabil shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to maintain the ability to supply all Product that Company orders from Jabil. Jabil agrees that, in the event of an allocation due to a force majeure event as set forth in Section 19, Company’s order(s), subject to normal lead-time requirements, shall be filled according to an allocation plan no less favorable than that provided to any other Jabil customer. Jabil shall provide Company with as much notice as possible if it anticipates or has reason to believe that Jabil’s output of the Product shall not be sufficient to meet all of Company’s requirements for any period.

4.14 Disaster Recovery and Redundancy. Jabil will make Commercially Reasonable Efforts to ensure that Products will be available, in suitable quantities and quality, for purchase by Company and its distributors and customers. For the purposes of this Section 4.14, “Commercially Reasonable Efforts” includes Jabil’s maintenance throughout the term of this Agreement of a disaster recovery plan that is consistent with the best practices in the industry. Jabil will provide Company with a copy of its disaster recovery plan on a yearly basis.

5. Warranty & Remedy.

Jabil agrees to request advance written approval from Company should resource requirements, and thereby NRE Costs, increase materially relative to estimated NRE Costs initially agreed by the Parties. Upon such request, Jabil shall provide to Company reasonably detailed supporting documentation and/or descriptions of the NRE Costs for which Jabil seeks reimbursement.

7.6 Taxes. Company shall be responsible for all federal, foreign, state and local sales, use, excise and other taxes (except taxes based on Jabil’s income, or property taxes on fixed assets or inventories), all delivery, shipping, and transportation charges and all foreign agent or brokerage fees, document fees, custom charges and duties except for those taxes incurred on the import and transportation of raw materials, which shall be included in the per unit price quoted.

In the case where Confidential Information constitutes a trade secret under applicable law, the confidentiality obligation set forth in this Agreement shall be observed for as long as such Confidential Information remains a trade secret following the termination of this Agreement. Each Party acknowledges that a breach of any of the terms of this Section 13 may cause the non-breaching Party irreparable damage, for which the award of damages would not be adequate

Consequently, the non-breaching Party may institute an action to enjoin the breaching Party from any and all acts in violation of those provisions, which remedy shall be cumulative and not exclusive, and shall be in addition to any other relief to which the non-breaching Party may be entitled at law or in equity. Such remedy shall not be subject to the arbitration provisions set forth in Section 21.13.

14.2 Jabil Created Intellectual Property. The Jabil Created Intellectual Property will be the sole property of Company.

Jabil Created Intellectual Property that constitutes copyrightable subject matter will be considered a “work made for hire” to the extent permitted under the United States Copyright Act.

Jabil will promptly disclose all Jabil Created Intellectual Property and all pertinent data to Company.

Jabil will assist Company and its designees in every proper way to secure Company’s rights in the Jabil Created Intellectual Property and related intellectual property rights. Jabil will execute all applications, specifications, oaths, assignments, and other instruments that Company deems necessary in order to apply for and obtain these rights and in order to assign and convey to Company, its successors, assigns, and nominees the sole and exclusive right, title, and interest in and to these Jabil Created Intellectual Property, and any related intellectual property rights.

Additionally, in the event that Company is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or other duly authorized government entity to have failed to fully comply with laws applicable to its business operations, Company shall indemnify and defend Jabil for any fines or penalties paid and resulting directly from the failure of Company’s non-compliance. Jabil may employ counsel, at its own expense, to assist Jabil with respect to any such claims, provided that if such counsel is necessary because of a conflict of interest with Company or its counselor because Company does not assume control of the defense of a claim for which Company is obligated to indemnify Jabil hereunder, Company shall bear such expense. Company shall not enter into any settlement that affects Jabil’s rights or interests without Jabil’s prior written approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed. Jabil will promptly provide such assistance and cooperation as is reasonably requested by Company or its counsel in connection with such indemnified claims.

Additionally, in the event that Jabil is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or other duly authorized government entity to have failed to fully comply with laws applicable to its business operations, Jabil shall indemnify and defend Company for any fines or penalties paid and resulting directly from the failure of Jabil’s non-compliance. Jabil shall not be required to indemnify Company if Jabil’s compliance with Company’s Specifications caused the violation. Company shall promptly advise Jabil of any such claim or allegation in writing and grant Jabil control of the defense of such claim or suit. Company may employ counsel, at its own expense to assist Company with respect to any such claims, provided that if such counsel is necessary because of a conflict of interest with Jabil or its counselor because Jabil does not assume control of the defense of a claim for which Jabil is obligated to indemnify Company hereunder, Jabil shall bear such expense.
