5. Confidentiality and Privacy
5.1. Beta Software etc. Obligations. You acknowledge and agree that SolitonReach may share alpha or beta software or hardware with you that it identifies as non-public. If so, you agree not to disclose such software or hardware to others without the prior written consent of SolitonReach until the time, if any, it is made public by SolitonReach, and to use such software or hardware only for the purposes expressly permitted by this Agreement.
5.2. SolitonReach Use of Assets. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and subject to the terms of any applicable nondisclosure agreement, you grant to SolitonReach and its affiliates a non-exclusive, worldwide and royalty-free limited license to use, reproduce, display, perform, publish and distribute screenshots, elements, assets, photographic, graphic or video reproductions or fragments of your Application in any medium or media, solely for purposes of promotion of your Application or of SolitonReach and its technology and business. This license will terminate if we terminate this Agreement, or, if you terminate it, if you inform us you have terminated it, except that in both cases the license will continue after termination with respect to any materials we created and first distributed prior to our termination or your notice of termination to us.
6. Ownership and Feedback
6.1. Ownership. Except for the license rights granted by you in Section 5.2, and SolitonReach’s ownership of the SolitonReach Software, the Soliton Devices, and the SolitonReach Redistributables, SolitonReach agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under this Agreement in or to any of your Applications, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in those Applications.

7.1. You are at least 18 years of age and have the right and authority to enter into this Agreement on your own behalf and that of your Authorized Users, or if you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of your company or organization, you have the right and authority to legally bind your company or organization and its Authorized Users.
7.2. You will use the SDK only in accordance with all accompanying documentation, in the manner expressly permitted by this Agreement, and your use of the SDK, and the marketing, sales and distribution of your Application, will be in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and all U.S. and local or foreign export and re-export restrictions applicable to the technology and documentation provided under this Agreement (including privacy and data security laws and regulations), and you will not develop any Application which would commit or facilitate the commission of a crime, or other tortious, unlawful, or illegal act.
8. Agreement and Development Program
We reserve the right to change this Agreement, the SDK or the SolitonReach development and licensing program at any time in our discretion. SolitonReach may require that you either accept and agree to the new terms of this Agreement, or, if you do not agree to the new terms, cease or terminate your use of the SDK. Your continued use of the SDK after changes to this Agreement take effect will constitute your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to a change, you must stop using the SDK and terminate this Agreement. Any termination of this Agreement by you under this Section 8 (and only this Section 8) will not affect your right, subject to your continued compliance with your obligations under this Agreement, to continue to distribute versions of your Application created and first distributed before termination, and will not affect the right of your End Users to continue using such versions of your Application, both of which rights will survive termination.
9. Term and Termination

9.2. Termination by You. If you want to terminate this Agreement, you may terminate it by uninstalling and destroying all copies of the SDK that are in the possession, custody or control of you, your Authorized Users and your organization, and returning all Soliton Devices to SolitonReach, Inc.
9.3. Termination by SolitonReach. SolitonReach may at any time, terminate this Agreement with you for any reason or for no reason in SolitonReach’s sole discretion, including as a result of non-compliance by you with the restrictions in Section 1.2 or Section 2.2, or for other reasons.
9.4. Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, all rights granted to you under this Agreement will immediately terminate and you must immediately return all Soliton Devices, cease all use and destroy all copies of the SDK in your and your Authorized Users’ possession, custody or control, and, except as specifically set out in Section 8, cease your distribution of Applications. Sections 1.2, 2.2, 2.2.3, 5.1, 5.2, 6, 9.4, and 10 - 13, and the Definitions exhibit, will survive termination of this Agreement.
