As between the parties, Ceres and its licensors exclusively own all right, title, and interest in and to all Intellectual Property Rights in the Ceres Core Technology, notwithstanding anything in this Agreement purportedly to the contrary. Except for the access rights expressly granted in Section 2 of this Agreement, Ceres, on behalf of itself and its licensors, reserves all rights in the Ceres Core Technology and does not grant Customer any rights (express, implied, by estoppel, through exhaustion, or otherwise).

All rights not expressly granted hereunder are reserved by Ceres.
As between the parties, Customer and its licensors will retain all right, title, and interest in and to all Intellectual Property Rights in Customer Data. Customer hereby grants Ceres a worldwide, non-exclusive, fully paid-up, royalty-free license to reproduce, modify, display, and otherwise use the Customer Data to provide the Subscription Services to Customer.
Ceres encourages Customer to provide suggestions, proposals, ideas, recommendations, or other feedback regarding improvements to the Ceres Products (collectively, “Feedback”).

a. The receiving Party shall only use, disclose or otherwise process the Confidential Information for purposes of and in connection with this Agreement. Each Party agrees to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of the other in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential information of like kind, but in no event shall either Party exercise less than reasonable care in protecting such Confidential Information. Access to the Confidential Information shall be restricted to (i) the receiving Party’s personnel engaged in a use permitted hereby and (ii) service providers solely for use in connection with the provision of services to the receiving Party; provided that all receiving Party personnel and any service providers shall in advance sign a confidentiality agreement that includes reasonable nondisclosure provisions or otherwise have committed themselves to maintaining the confidentiality of Confidential Information.

In such case, the receiving Party shall, except where prohibited by Law(s), notify the disclosing Party promptly in writing within at least ten (10) days of the receipt of the disclosure request or such shorter time as necessary to provide the disclosing Party reasonable time to oppose the disclosure request. In connection with such a disclosure request, the receiving Party shall comply with all lawful directions of the disclosing Party, limit the nature and scope of the requested disclosure to the extent permitted by Law(s), disclose the minimum amount of Confidential Information necessary to comply with Law(s), and, upon the disclosing Party’s request, cooperate fully with the disclosing Party in resisting the disclosure request to the full extent permitted by Law(s).
c. Each Party acknowledges that, in the event of any breach of the provisions of this Section 6 (Confidentiality), the disclosing Party may suffer damages that are not easily determinable, and shall be entitled to seek equitable relief, including an injunction or an order for specific performance.
7. Term and Termination.
a. The term of this Agreement shall commence as of the Effective Date and continue for twelve (12) months following the Effective Date. The term of the Agreement thereafter shall automatically renew for successive 12-month renewal periods, unless either Party provides written notice of termination sixty (60) days in advance of commencement of a 12-month renewal period or the Agreement is otherwise terminated as permitted below in this Section 7.
b. Either Party may terminate this Agreement, immediately upon written notice to the other Party in the event of a material breach by the other Party of any provision of this Agreement that remains uncured thirty (30) days following receipt of notice of such breach from the non-breaching Party.
c. Ceres may also terminate this Agreement or any or all Subscription Services Order Forms: (i) immediately, if Customer becomes subject to a Bankruptcy Event; or (ii) upon 60 days’ prior, written notice for any reason or no reason.
d. Upon termination of this Agreement, all Subscription Services Order Forms and all rights granted to Customer under this Agreement shall automatically terminate and, as a result, Customer shall no longer have any rights to access the Subscription Services, Operations Data, Outputs and Documentation and Customer shall promptly pay to Ceres all remaining amounts due under all terminated Subscription Services Order Forms through the originally contemplated duration of such Subscription Services Order Forms.
Customer shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Ceres, Ceres’ Affiliates and its and their respective directors, officers, employees, independent contractors, agents, successors and assigns (each, an “Indemnified Party”) from and against all Claims and Losses to the extent arising out of or in any way related to: (a) Customer’s access to or use of any Ceres Core Technology; (b) Customer Data; or (c) Customer’s negligence or violation of any term or condition of this Agreement or any Subscription Services Order Form.
IN NO EVENT WILL CERES OR ITS SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS OR SUBCONTRACTORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES ORDER FORM (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS, USE, DATA OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE), HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), EVEN IF CERES HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL CERES OR ITS SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS OR SUBCONTRACTORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO PROPERTY, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO DATA, OR THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES, OR TECHNOLOGY. THE LIABILITY OF CERES AND ITS SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS FOR CLAIMS RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES ORDER FORM, WHETHER FOR BREACH OR IN TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE), WILL BE LIMITED TO $100 USD.

10. Insurance. Customer will obtain and maintain for at least the duration of the Agreement, at its own cost and expense, all insurance coverages, with sufficient limits, as necessary to cover Customer’s obligations and potential liabilities to Ceres.
11. Support. Ceres will provide support for its Subscription Services according to commercially reasonable support service practices.
12. Scheduling. Customer understands and agrees that it will need to collaborate with Ceres with regard to the scheduling of flights. While Ceres makes efforts to honor requests made by Customers with regard to flight times and frequencies, Customer understands and agrees that there may be times when Ceres is unable to honor a request for a particular flight at a particular time (for example, without limitation, due to weather) and Customer hereby discharges Ceres of (and Ceres hereby disclaims) any and all liability as a result of Ceres’ inability to complete a flight so long as Ceres reasonably collaborates with Customer to re-schedule the flight. If a flight is missed, then Ceres will automatically schedule a flight for the following week unless notified otherwise by the Customer before such week begins. Ceres targets completion of post-flight processing within 12-48 hours; and (ii) Ceres require a minimum of 5 business days prior notice of any flight add-on or change. A failure to provide Ceres with adequate notice of a flight add-on or change may result in additional re-scheduling charges for the Customer and the Customer agrees to pay such charges no later than thirty (30) days following the invoice date. If acting reasonably, Ceres has the right to decline any particular flight or imaging order.
13. Additional Incentives. Access to additional client incentives, such as free flight promotions, will be provided by Ceres at Ceres sole discretion.
14. Export Controls. Each Party shall be responsible for ensuring that its actions with respect to the Subscription Services are incompliance with the export control Laws of the United States.

Each party will comply with local and foreign export control Laws, including U.S. export control Laws.

Customer shall not assign this Agreement, any Subscription Services Order Form, or any of its obligations or liabilities hereunder without the prior written consent of Ceres, which Ceres may withhold in its sole discretion. Any attempted assignment or delegation in violation of the foregoing will be void. Ceres may assign this Agreement or any Subscription Services Order Form, in whole or in part, without the consent of Customer. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of each Party hereto.

Customer agrees to provide any required disclosures to and obtain any required consents for the transfer of Customer Data to Ceres.
c. Notice. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, all notices will be in writing and deemed given on: (a) personal delivery; (b) when received by the addressee if sent by a recognized overnight courier (receipt requested); (c) the third business day after mailing; or (d) the first business day after sending by email with confirmation of receipt, except that email will not be sufficient for notices regarding a Claim or alleged breach. Notices will be sent as set forth on the first page of this Agreement or as subsequently updated in writing.
d. Force Majeure. Ceres is not, and may not be construed to be, in breach of this Agreement for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing the Subscription Services, when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts beyond Ceres's reasonable control, including: strikes, lock-outs, or other industrial disputes; trespass, sabotage, theft or other criminal acts export bans, sanctions, war, terrorism, riot, civil unrest, or government action; failure of Internet connectivity or backbone or other telecommunications failures, in each case outside of Ceres's local network; breakdown of plant or machinery; nuclear, chemical, or biological contamination; fire, flood, natural disaster, extreme adverse weather, or other acts of God (each a "Force Majeure Event"). Ceres will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of such Force Majeure Event.
e. High Risk Activity. The Subscription Services is not designed for any purpose requiring fail-safe performance, including stock trading, financial transaction processing, operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines, weapons systems, or other management or operation of hazardous facilities or applications for which failure could result in death, personal injury, or severe physical, property, or environmental damage (each, a "High Risk Activity"). Ceres, its licensors, and suppliers expressly disclaim all warranties of fitness for any such use.
f. Execution. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, by electronic means to accurately send images, such as via email, or by electronic signature service.

Each Party will deliver to the other an original executed copy of the Agreement promptly after execution.
g. Waiver and Amendment. Failure by a Party to enforce any part of this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. A waiver of any right is effective only if in a writing signed by an authorized representative of the waiving Party. Any modification of this Agreement must be in writing and signed by authorized representatives of both Parties.
h. Severability. If any term of this Agreement is held invalid, unenforceable, or void by a court of competent jurisdiction, such term will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, such holding will not affect the remaining terms, and the invalid, unenforceable, or void term will be deemed amended or replaced by a valid, legal, and enforceable term that matches the intent of the original language as closely as possible.
i. Relationship. The Parties are independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency, or other relationship. Neither Party has any right or authority to assume or create any obligation of any kind, express or implied, in the other Party's name or on its behalf.
j. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by the Laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. The Parties irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in Santa Clara County, California, for the purposes of adjudicating any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement. Each Party expressly consents to service of process by registered mail. To the extent permitted by Law, choice of law rules and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply.
k. Equitable Remedies. The receiving Party's disclosure of Confidential Information except as provided in this Agreement, or a Party's infringement or misappropriation of the other Party's Intellectual Property Rights may result in irreparable injury for which a remedy in money damages may be inadequate. In the event of such actual or threatened disclosure, infringement or misappropriation, disclosing party may be entitled to seek an injunction to prevent the breach or threatened breach without the necessity of proving irreparable injury or the inadequacy of money damages, in addition to remedies otherwise available to disclosing party at law or in equity.

URLs are understood to also refer to successor URLs, URLs for localized content, and information or resources linked from within the websites at such URLs.
n. No Exclusivity. Nothing in the Agreement shall be construed as creating any type of exclusive relationship among the Parties.
o. Survival. All provisions of this Agreement that are by their nature intended to survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement or a Subscription Services Order Form, including without limitation, obligations with respect to indemnification, confidentiality, limitation on liability, and Ceres’ Intellectual Property Rights, shall survive such expiration or termination.
The difference between Ceres Imaging and other technologies I've used is the help I get from their expert team.
With Ceres Imaging we can take a more targeted approach to applying fertilizer and nutrients.
These flights can cover way more ground and provide more insight than a dozen soil moisture probes — and it's cheaper to implement.
The average Ceres Imaging conductance measurement from its imagery over the season has provided the best correlation with applied water.
