PROGRAM: MSFragger UM # 7143
This Agreement is made by and between The Regents of The University of Michigan, a constitutional corporation of the state of Michigan (hereinafter "MICHIGAN") and LICENSEE.
1. Members of the University of Michigan’s Medical School Departments of Pathology and Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics have developed a proprietary software application and related documentation for peptide identification referred to as “MSFragger”, for use by trained individuals in bioinformatics and proteomics research (hereinafter referred to as "PROGRAM"); and
2. LICENSEE desires to obtain, and MICHIGAN, consistent with its mission of education and research, desires to grant, a license to use the PROGRAM subject to the terms and conditions set forth below; and
The parties therefore agree as follows:
MICHIGAN hereby grants to LICENSEE a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the PROGRAM solely for academic research, non-commercial or educational purposes within the LICENSEE’s department and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
II. LIMITATION OF LICENSE AND RESTRICTIONS
A. LICENSEE shall not use, print, copy, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, modify, create derivative works of or publicly display the PROGRAM, in whole or in part, unless expressly authorized by this Agreement.
B. LICENSEE agrees that it shall use the PROGRAM only for LICENSEE'S sole and exclusive use, and shall not disclose, sell, license, or otherwise distribute the PROGRAM, in whole or in part, to any third party without the prior written consent of MICHIGAN. LICENSEE shall not assign this Agreement, and any attempt by LICENSEE to assign it shall be void from the beginning. LICENSEE agrees to secure and protect the PROGRAM and any copies of the PROGRAM in a manner consistent with the maintenance of MICHIGAN'S rights in the PROGRAM and to take appropriate action by instruction or agreement with its employees who are permitted access to the PROGRAM in order to satisfy LICENSEE'S obligations under this Agreement.
C. LICENSEE may copy the PROGRAM for the purpose of using the PROGRAM on other devices and for archival purposes.

V. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
A. THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. MICHIGAN DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE PROGRAM WILL MEET LICENSEE'S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT OPERATION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. MICHIGAN shall not be liable for special, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages with respect to any claim on account of or arising from this Agreement or use of the PROGRAM, even if MICHIGAN has been or is hereafter advised of the possibility of such damages. Because some states do not allow certain exclusions or limitations on implied warranties or of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above exclusions may not apply to LICENSEE. In no event, however, will MICHIGAN be liable to LICENSEE, under any theory of recovery, in an amount in excess of the license fee paid by LICENSEE under this Agreement.
B. LICENSEE agrees that MICHIGAN has no obligation to provide to LICENSEE any maintenance, support, or update services. Should MICHIGAN provide any revised versions of the PROGRAM to LICENSEE, LICENSEE agrees that this license agreement shall apply to such revised versions.
VI. WARRANTY OF LICENSEE
LICENSEE warrants and represents that it will carefully review any documentation or instructional material provided by MICHIGAN.
If LICENSEE at any time fails to abide by the terms of this Agreement, MICHIGAN shall have the right to immediately terminate the license granted herein, require the return or destruction of all copies of the PROGRAM from LICENSEE and certification in writing as to such return or destruction, and pursue any other legal or equitable remedies available.
A. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Michigan. Should LICENSEE for any reason bring a claim, demand, or other action against MICHIGAN, its agents or employees, arising out of this Agreement or the PROGRAM licensed herein, LICENSEE agrees to bring said claim only in the Michigan Court of Claims.
B. THIS AGREEMENT REPRESENTS THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE STATEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN MICHIGAN AND LICENSEE AND SUPERSEDES ALL PRIOR AGREEMENTS, PROPOSALS, REPRESENTATIONS AND OTHER COMMUNICATIONS, VERBAL OR WRITTEN, BETWEEN THEM WITH RESPECT TO USE OF THE PROGRAM.
