We and you do not intend that any of this Agreement will be enforceable by third parties or by any person not a party to it. All rights of Third Parties are hereby excluded.

This Agreement contains all the terms which the parties have agreed in relation to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes any prior written or oral agreements, representations (save for any fraudulent misrepresentation, fraud or concealment) or understandings between the parties in relation to such subject matter.

  • SCHEDULE 2
Handling of Taxes

For the purposes of this Schedule, “Withholding Tax” means any tax deducted at source for payments (typically interest, dividend or royalties) to a foreign corporation, as determined by the payer’s domestic tax legislation.

Payment of License Fees shall not be reduced on account of any taxes unless required by any applicable laws. We shall be responsible for paying any and all taxes (other than Withholding Taxes required by any applicable law to be paid by you) levied on account of, or measured in whole or in part by reference to, any payments we receive. You shall deduct or withhold from payment of the License Fees any taxes that you are required by applicable law to deduct or withhold. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if we are entitled under any applicable tax treaty or convention to a reduction of rate of, or the elimination of, applicable Withholding Tax, we may deliver to you or the appropriate governmental authority (with your assistance to the extent that this is reasonably required) the prescribed forms necessary to reduce the applicable rate of withholding or to relieve you of your obligation to withhold tax. You shall render all reasonable assistance to us for this purpose as is requested by us (such assistance to include the signing by you or any of your officers of any required forms or other document so required). You shall apply the reduced rate of withholding, or dispense with withholding, as the case may be, provided that you have received evidence, in a form satisfactory to you, of our delivery of all applicable forms (and, if necessary, the receipt of appropriate governmental authorization) at least 7 (seven) days prior to the time that the payments to us are due. If, in accordance with the foregoing, you withhold any amount from a payment to us (“Withholding”), you shall (subject to the provisions of this clause) pay to us the payment net of the Withholding when due, and shall account to the proper tax authority for the Withholding. You shall send to us proof of such Withholding and that such Withholding has been accounted to the proper tax authority (through a self-declaration issued by you) within 30 (thirty) days following payment of the Withholding to the tax authority and shall, if requested by us, provide to us a copy of any return made to a tax authority of the Withholding within 10 days of request (or, if later, within 10 days of such return being made to the relevant tax authority). We shall have the right, if permissible under applicable laws, to require you to delay payment of License Fees in order to enable us to benefit from any applicable double taxation or other taxation treaties or conventions. You shall indemnify, keep indemnified and hold harmless, us against all losses incurred or suffered by us arising out of your failure to duly and timely pay any tax to the applicable tax Authorities or other authorities within the relevant period in accordance with this clause.
