CUSTOMER may not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works of the Software Product, except and only to the extent that the right to do so is mandated under applicable law. Nothing contained herein shall be construed, expressly or implicitly, as transferring any right, license or title to CUSTOMER other than those
explicitly granted under this EULA. Unauthorized copying of the Software Product or failure to comply with the above restrictions will result in automatic termination of this Agreement and will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to KURMI for which monetary damages may be an inadequate remedy, in which case injunctive

12. IP Indemnification
KURMI undertakes to defend the CUSTOMER against any claim from a third party and to compensate it for any costs and/or damages and interest incurred on the basis of a final court decision if: (1) it concerns the violation of an intellectual property right; (2) it concerns the Software Product in the form provided to the CUSTOMER; (3) the CUSTOMER immediately notifies KURMI in writing, entrusting KURMI with the exclusive defense and negotiations with a view to a settlement or compromise solution with the third party and (4) the CUSTOMER provides KURMI with all assistance required to contest the claim.
If the claim made by a third party regarding the violation of property rights is successful, the CUSTOMER accepts that KURMI may, at its own cost, (i) modify or replace the Software Product or parts of the Software Product in question, depending on which solution is more beneficial, or (ii) obtain for the CUSTOMER the right to continue to use the Software Product. If neither of these options is reasonably acceptable in the opinion of KURMI, the CUSTOMER should, at the request of KURMI, return the Software Product to KURMI, which will refund the cost of the license.

In case such audit cannot be carried out due to the CUSTOMER’s security policy, the CUSTOMER shall produce a screenshot of the page showing the CUSTOMER’s use of the Software Product.
These audits may take place once a year and will be financed by KURMI unless they reveal failure by the CUSTOMER to carry out the obligations outlined in this Agreement. In this case, as well as the immediate payment of the licenses owed, the CUSTOMER will be required to refund KURMI the entirety of the justified costs incurred by the performance of these audits, KURMI reserving the option to invoke the provisions relating to the failure to fulfil a major contractual obligation.
