VistaShare will add Customer’s name in a Registration Statement (defined in the Escrow Agreement) to make Customer a registrant under the Escrow Agreement.

B. In the event Customer receives access to the Source Code from the Escrow Agent, it shall treat the Source Code as strictly confidential, and shall not disclose it to any third party; provided, however, that Customer may disclose the Source Code to a third party contractor retained for the purpose of ensuring the continued operation of the Services following the discontinuation of VistaShare’s support for the Services, after such third party contract executes and delivers a confidentiality agreement.
C. Once the Source Code is delivered to Customer under the terms of the Source Code Escrow Agreement, Customer shall have a limited, royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to utilize the Source Code to provide for the continuation of Services under this TOS during the period in which VistaShare is not supporting the Services. Customer may not modify the Source Code or the Services in any way under such license.
D. If VistaShare resumes support of the Services at any time after the Escrow Agent delivers the Source Code to Customer, then the license described in the preceding subparagraph shall cease. Customer shall return all copies of the Source Code and any other escrowed materials that it received to the Escrow Agent or to VistaShare.
E. At all times during the period in which VistaShare is not supporting the Services, Customer shall act in a commercially reasonable manner and shall mitigate its damages to the full extent reasonable under the circumstances.
F. VistaShare shall be responsible for all fees to be paid to the Escrow Agent under the Source Code Escrow Agreement.
The Services may provide, or third parties may provide, links to other Internet sites or resources. Because VistaShare has no control over such sites and resources, Customer acknowledges and agrees that VistaShare is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that VistaShare shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such site or resource.
