5.3 Privacy and Data Protection. The Parties will comply with their respective obligations under applicable Privacy Laws. Neither Party will do any act that puts the other Party in breach of its obligations as set out in this Section, nor will anything in this Agreement be deemed to prevent any Party from taking any action it reasonably deems necessary to comply with Privacy Laws. Should Faronics, in its sole discretion, determine Subscriber’s actions are such that a breach of Privacy Laws has or is at risk of occurring, Faronics may discontinue providing the Services at any time without any liability.
Subscriber is solely responsible for obtaining consents or providing notice of collection, use and disclosure with respect to any personal information provided directly or indirectly to Faronics in the course of Subscriber’s use, or Subscriber’s employees’, agents’ and contractors’ use of the Account and the Services.

The terms "personal data", "data processor", "data subject", "process", and "data controller" used in this Agreement: (1) are as defined in Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (or applicable national legislation implementing that Directive) only in jurisdictions where Directive 95/46/EC and such implementing national legislation applies; and (2) will have their ordinary meaning in all other jurisdictions.
Subscriber warrants and agrees that any instructions given by Subscriber to Faronics will at all times be in accordance with the requirements of Privacy Laws. Subscriber will fully indemnify Faronics against any loss, damages, liability and costs (including legal fees) incurred by Faronics which is not the result of its own negligence and is related to the Services or the data subject to this Agreement, including but not limited to any breach of Privacy Laws by Subscriber, erroneous or corrupt data, access or disclosure requirements. For further clarity, Subscriber will fully indemnify Faronics for all costs (including legal fees) related to dealing with and responding to any request, inquiry, process or proceeding by any legitimate regulatory authority in respect of the Services or the data subject to this Agreement and is not due to Faronics’ own negligence.

Faronics may comply with these subpoenas or court orders with or without notice to Subscriber.
5.4 Account Security. Subscriber is solely responsible for access to, content in or sharing and use of its Account. Faronics will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any access to, or sharing and use of Subscriber’s Account.

12.9 Export Compliance. Subscriber acknowledges that the Services or parts thereof including the Software may be subject to export restrictions by the United States government and import restrictions by certain foreign governments. Subscriber will not and will not allow any third-party to remove or export from the United States or allow the export or re-export of any part of the Services, including the Software, or any direct product thereof: (i) into (or to a national or resident of) any embargoed or terrorist-supporting country; (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Denial Orders or U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals; (iii) to any country to which such export or re-export is restricted or prohibited, or as to which the United States government or any agency thereof requires an export license or other governmental approval at the time of export or re-export without first obtaining such license or approval; or (iv) otherwise in violation of any export or import restrictions, laws or regulations of any United States or foreign agency or authority. Subscriber understands that Faronics is not responsible for Services or part thereof that are exported by Subscriber or transferred to another representative in the United States or another country. Subscriber agrees to the foregoing and warrants that Subscriber is not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such prohibited country or on any such prohibited party list. The Services are further restricted from being used for the design or development of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons or missile technology, or for terrorist activity, without the prior permission of the United States government.
12.10 Entire Agreement. This Agreement (including permitted amendments hereto), any End User License Agreement that refers to any part of the Services, and all Orders constitute the entire agreement between Subscriber and Faronics relating to the Services and the Support Services and supersede any other oral or written communications, proposals and representations with respect to the Services or Support Services. To the extent that any Order, any applicable End User License Agreement, or any Faronics’ policies or programs conflict with the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement will prevail. In addition, the terms of this Agreement will prevail over any and all additional or conflicting terms or provisions contained in any document of Subscriber, whether set out in a purchase order or alternative license, and any and all such additional or conflicting terms will be void and will have no effect. This Agreement is in addition to and does not have any effect on any other agreement between Faronics and Subscriber not relating to the Services and the Support Services.
12.11 Audit: If requested, Subscriber will certify in writing that Subscriber is using the Software on the number of Devices, with the number of copies, and is otherwise using the Services in accordance with the restrictions set out in this Agreement or in any documentation generally made available with the Software or the other Services. In addition and without limitation to Faronics’ right to monitor the Devices, Subscriber will permit Faronics or Faronics’ representatives to otherwise audit Subscriber’s use of the Software and the other Services at least semi-annually and to inspect (and make copies of) all relevant records in order to determine whether Subscriber is complying with this Agreement.
