IN NO EVENT SHALL ELITE ELDT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF USE, LOST DATA, FAILURE OF SECURITY MECHANISMS, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT, ELITE ELDT’S ENTIRE LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY CUSTOMER TO ELITE ELDT UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE CLAIM.

Either party may terminate this Agreement on ten (10) days’ written notice if neither customer nor its attendees are utilizing Training Materials.

Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, Customer shall promptly delete (or, at Elite ELDT’s request, return) any and all Confidential Information in its possession or control. However, Customer may retain its copies of any Training Materials it received prior to termination, provided this Agreement was not terminated for Customer’s breach and Customer remains in compliance with all applicable restrictions herein. Sections 3 (Ownership of Training Materials), 4 (Payment), 5 (Confidential Information), 6 (No Warranty), 7 (Limitation of Liability), 8 (Term and Termination) and 9 (General) shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.

Any suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be commenced exclusively in the state or federal courts in Atlanta, Georgia, and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Customer acknowledges that Elite ELDT would not make available the Materials except on all the terms included herein, and accordingly Elite ELDT may terminate this Agreement and seek injunctive relief upon any breach. The parties are independent contractors and no employment, agency, or joint venture is created hereunder. All notices, requests and other communications under this Agreement must be in writing, and must be mailed by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid and return receipt requested, or delivered by hand to the party to whom such notice is required or permitted to be given. This Agreement may not be assigned or transferred by Customer without the prior written consent of Elite ELDT. Except as may be otherwise expressly set forth herein, no supplement, modification, or amendment of this Agreement will be binding unless executed in writing by a duly authorized representative of each party to this Agreement. Any purported assignment or amendment in violation of the foregoing shall be void. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions hereof shall be unaffected and remain in full force and effect. This Agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings and agreements relating to such subject matter, whether oral or written.
