You acknowledge the validity of all marks and copyrights asserted by Zahourek and acknowledge all your past, present, and future uses of Zahourek’s or similar marks including but not limited to those listed under the Intellectual Property and Associated Intellectual Property shall inure to the benefit of Zahourek.
- Should You breach this Agreement, Zahourek may terminate the Agreement upon thirty (30) days notice to You, provided that You have not corrected such material breach during such period.

- You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Zahourek against all claims, liability, damages and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, incurred as a result of or related to any claim, whether threatened or pending, by any person in any way involving your use of the Intellectual Property or Associated Intellectual Property.
- The validity and interpretation of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Colorado law except as to copyright and other proprietary matters which may be preempted by United States laws and international treaties. In the event of any violation of this Agreement, Zahourek reserves the right to pursue any state law remedies (including contractual remedies) or remedies under federal laws or both. If You are a governmental unit, you agree to waive your governmental immunity to any suit and/or liability arising hereunder. The parties agree to exclusively submit any controversy or claim arising hereunder or in any way arising from their relationship or use of Intellectual Property to confidential binding arbitration in Larimer County, Colorado, to the extent permissible under law, before a reasonably priced single attorney having experience in enforcement of trademark and intellectual property rights for a growing business and who will enforce the contract according to its terms. Such arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with applicable law and the Commercial Arbitration Rules (CAR’s) of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) with each applicable law modified for efficiency and: a) to avoid the involvement of the AAA, b) to provide for the minimal amount of discovery and other pre-hearing procedures consistent with a fair resolution of the dispute, and c) to endeavor for the dispute to be resolved within 180 days of the arbitrator’s appointment unless the arbitrator determines that justice requires otherwise. For further efficiency, selection of the arbitrator shall be made promptly by two attorneys, one of which may be selected by each party. Any appropriate award, including but not limited to injunctive relief if deemed appropriate, rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The prevailing party may be entitled to recover reasonable attorney fees and costs incurred in such arbitration. In the event any claim or controversy arises which is not subject to binding arbitration under this section, the parties agree to submit to exclusive jurisdiction and venue for the resolution of such dispute in the District Court of Larimer County, Colorado, or to the extent necessary in federal court in the District of Colorado.
- Damages caused by a breach of this contract are uncertain and difficult to ascertain as it may affect Zahourek’s reputation. As a result, should a breach of this contract be found, You agree to pay to Zahourek as liquidated damages, and not as a penalty, an amount equal to 20% of all Your gross sales from the first instance of the wrongdoing through the elimination of the wrongdoing. Liquidated damages shall also include Zahourek’s attorney fees and costs (collectively, “Zahourek’s Liquidated Damages”). Alternatively and in lieu of Zahourek’s liquidated damages, Zahourek may elect to terminate this Agreement and recover its actual damages resulting from Your breach in accordance with Colorado law, in which case Zahourek may seek an award of such actual damages. If Zahourek elects to seek actual damages, Zahourek must provide You with written notice of such election within 30 days after the end of Your cure period, and if Zahourek fails to provide such notice, then Zahourek will only be entitled to Zahourek’s Liquidated Damages.
- You acknowledge and accept that (1) these terms constitute the entire agreement between You and Zahourek regarding its subject matter and to the extent inconsistent, supersedes any prior versions and past contracts; and (2) this Agreement applies to any past purchases or uses of Zahourek’s products. No modification by You to the terms or any additional authorization will be binding unless authorized by an officer of Zahourek in writing. Each time You purchase products from Zahourek, you agree to the then existing Product License Agreement including those terms provided in the linked pages Zahourek’s employees, licensees, or sales representatives are not authorized to modify this agreement or grant any additional authorization. Any express waiver or failure to exercise any right under the terms will not create a continuing waiver or any expectation of non-enforcement. If any provision of the terms is held invalid by any competent court, governmental entity or arbitrator, such provision will be replaced with a new provision that accomplishes the original business purpose, and the other provisions of the terms will remain in full force and effect.
