Both Parties acknowledge that the unauthorized disclosure or use of Confidential Information could cause irreparable harm and significant injury, the precise measure of which may be difficult to ascertain.  Accordingly, each Party agrees that the aggrieved Party shall have the right to seek injunctive relief from any breach of the confidentiality obligations of Sections 8 & 9, in addition to all other rights and remedies to which it may have.  Both Parties agree that each has and shall retain ownership of all of its own Confidential Information, and that upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement, each Party shall return or destroy, at the disclosing party’s election, and shall not retain in any form the Confidential Information of the other Party.  Each Party will certify in writing to the other party that the Confidential Information has been returned or destroyed in its entirety.
  1. Miscellaneous. This Agreement shall constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the terms of agreement between OWC and Customer. THE TERMS OF ANY PURCHASE ORDER, CONFIRMATION OR SIMILAR DOCUMENT WILL HAVE NO EFFECT AND WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED AGREED TO BY OWC. PROVISION OF THE PRODUCTS IS CONDITIONED ON, AND CUSTOMER’S ORDERING, ACCEPTANCE OR USE OF ANY SUCH PRODUCT SHALL CONSTITUTE, CUSTOMER’S ASSENT TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT TO THE EXCLUSION OF ALL OTHER TERMS. IF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ARE CONSIDERED AN OFFER, ACCEPTANCE IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO SUCH TERMS. OWC’s performance is expressly conditioned on Customer’s assent to the Agreement. A waiver of any default hereunder or of any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a continuing waiver or a waiver of any other default or of any other provision, but shall apply solely to the instance to which such waiver is directed. In the event any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, a modified provision shall be substituted which carries out as nearly as possible the original intent of the Parties, and the validity, legality and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. Customer agrees not to export, either directly or indirectly, any Product purchased or licensed hereunder without first obtaining any required license or other approval from the U.S. Department of Commerce or any other agency or department of the United States Government. If Customer exports any such Product from the United States or re-exports it from a foreign destination, Customer shall ensure that the export/re-export or import of the Product is in compliance with all laws, regulations, orders or other restrictions of the United States and the appropriate foreign government. For international shipments, OWC or its properly authorized agent or freight forwarder shall be exporter of record from the United States. Customer shall be the importer of record and is responsible for fulfilling quota terms, obtaining import licenses, paying import license or permit fees, duties and customs fees, and any other governmental or import taxes or fees, and preparing and submitting all required documentation in connection with importing the Products. OWC shall not be liable to Customer for any alleged loss or damages resulting from delays in shipment or delivery (including loss or damages resulting from delivery of the Products being delayed) caused by acts of Customer, acts of civil or military authority, governmental priorities, earthquake, fire, flood, epidemic, quarantine, energy crisis, strike, labor trouble, component shortage, war, riot, accident, shortage, delays in transportation, or any other causes beyond OWC’s reasonable control. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and all disputes hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois as applied to contracts made and to be performed in Illinois, without applying conflict of laws rules. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (1980) is hereby excluded in its entirety from application to this Agreement. Customer may not assign this Agreement or any rights hereunder (whether by purchase of stock or assets, merger, change of control, operation of law, or otherwise) without OWC’s prior written consent, which may be withheld in OWC’s sole and absolute discretion, and any unauthorized purported assignment by Customer will be void. OWC may freely assign or delegate its rights and obligations hereunder. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of this Agreement that cannot be resolved thereby within a period of thirty (30) days after written notice of a dispute has been given by one party hereunder to the other, shall be finally settled by arbitration in McHenry County, Illinois, using the English language in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS”) then in effect, by an arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving complex commercial contract disputes, who will be chosen from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators. If the parties cannot agree upon the identity of an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days following the Arbitration Date, then an arbitrator shall be selected on an expedited basis in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS. Any arbitrator so selected shall have substantial experience in the networking industry. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant specific performance and to allocate between the parties the costs of arbitration (including service fees, arbitrator fees and all other fees related to the arbitration) in such equitable manner as the arbitrator may determine. The prevailing party in the arbitration shall be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees and all other expenses) incurred in connection therewith. Judgment upon the award so rendered may be entered in a court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for preliminary injunctive relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator, provided that a permanent injunction and damages shall only be awarded by the arbitrator.

Exhibit B 

OWC Jellyfish Limited Hardware Warranty 


This OWC Jellyfish Limited Hardware Warranty applies to any customer (“Customer”) who is entitled to receive a Warranty from Other World Computing, Inc. (“OWC”) for specific OWC Jellyfish product(s) (the “Product”) pursuant to the Sales Quotation or Sales Order between Customer and OWC that references these Terms (an “Agreement”).


OWC provides a limited warranty for all OWC Jellyfish products (“OWC Jellyfish Products”), as follows: for a period of three (3) years following the date of delivery of the OWC Jellyfish Product to the original end user, OWC warrants that the OWC Jellyfish Product and all of its components will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service (the “Limited Warranty”). This Limited Warranty applies only to new OWC Jellyfish Products purchased from OWC or an Authorized OWC Reseller, is not transferable, and a valid proof of purchase may be required to prove eligibility. The Limited Warranty does not cover damage resulting from commercial use, misuse, accident, modification or alteration to hardware or software, tampering, unsuitable physical or operating environment beyond product specifications, or failure caused by a product for which OWC is not responsible. In addition, the Limited Warranty does not cover issues with software relating to or incorporated in the Products (“Software”), which is instead subject to the Support and Maintenance Services located at Software Support and Maintenance Services.


There is no warranty of uninterrupted or error-free operation. There is no warranty for loss of data—you must regularly back up any data stored on your Products to a separate storage device.


OWC and its affiliates, suppliers, distributors, and resellers are not liable for any of the following:


  • Third-party claims against you for damages;
  • Loss of or damage to your data; or
  • Special, incidental, or indirect damages or for any economic consequential damages (including loss of profits or savings), even if informed of the possibility.


Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability, incidental damages, or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you (Customer).




Any claim under this Limited Warranty must be submitted before the end of the warranty period to OWC at 8 Galaxy Way, Woodstock, IL 60098. The product must be insured, and shipped freight prepaid and securely packaged. Customer must call or email for a Return Material Authorization Number (RMA) before shipping any product, and include the RMA, a copy of Customer’s sales slip and a description of the problem Customer is experiencing with the Product. As Customer’s sole remedy (and OWC’s sole liability) under this Limited Warranty, OWC will use reasonable commercial efforts to repair, replace or refund within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Product. OWC may in its discretion offer advance replacement for a product, where OWC will ship a replacement product to Customer prior to receiving the defective product from Customer (“Advance Replacement”). In connection with an Advance Replacement, OWC may require Customer to provide a credit card to charge against in the event that any defective product is not returned by Customer.


Customer shall not make any modifications or repairs to the hardware without first calling Customer Service at (818) 741-2858, or by submitting a ticket through OWC Jellyfish support located at https://jellyfish.support, for guided assistance and directions. It shall be at the sole discretion of the Company whether the Customer is advised to repair the equipment, or whether the Company replaces the hardware or the Company itself repairs the hardware. In the event the Customer installs any third-party hardware not supplied by OWC, this warranty will be void.

These Software Support and Maintenance Terms are governed by the Other World Computing Inc. Terms and Conditions located at https://www.lumaforge.com/terms-conditions. Customer is not entitled to support services unless Customer has ordered and paid for such services as provided on the Sales Quotation or Sales Order. To the extent OWC has become obligated for support, the following will apply with respect to the Products so long as they remain OWC’s standard terms for support and the Customer is in full compliance with its Agreement.


Software Support and Maintenance Services consist of using reasonable efforts to provide (a) Error Correction and Telephone Support provided to a single consistent technical support contact concerning the installation and use of the then current release of the Software and the Previous Sequential Release, (b) E-mail Support, (c) Web Support, and (d) Software updates that OWC in its discretion makes generally available to its support and maintenance customers without additional charge (collectively, “Support”).

Support plans covering hours outside of Business Hours may be offered for an additional fee.


If OWC believes that a problem reported by Customer may not be due to an Error in the Software, OWC will so notify Customer. At that time, Customer may (1) instruct OWC to proceed with problem determination at its possible expense as set forth below, or (2) instruct OWC that Customer does not wish the problem pursued at its possible expense. If Customer requests that OWC proceed with problem determination at its possible expense and OWC determines that the error was not due to an Error in the Software, Customer shall pay OWC, at OWC’s then-current and standard consulting rates, for all work performed in connection with such determination, plus reasonable related expenses incurred therewith. Customer shall not be liable for (i) problem determination or repair to the extent problems are due to Errors in the Software; or (ii) work performed under this paragraph in excess of its instructions; or (iii) work performed after Customer has notified OWC that it no longer wishes work on the problem determination to be continued at its possible expense (such notice shall be deemed given when actually received by OWC). If Customer instructs OWC that it does not wish the problem pursued at its possible expense or if such determination requires effort in excess of Customer’s instructions, OWC may, at its sole discretion, elect not to investigate the error with no liability therefor.


1. Software Support and Maintenance Services Terms.


    Support for Software will be provided by OWC solely during the applicable Support Term (as defined below) in accordance with (i) the support package selected and paid for by Customer, and (ii) OWC’s Support terms for such Software located at https://www.lumaforge.com/jellyfish/support/tower, as such terms may be updated from time to time by OWC. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Customer has obtained any Products from any Channel Partner, then Customer acknowledges and agrees that, if specified on the Sales Quotation or Sales Order (or otherwise directed by OWC), it may be required to contact such Channel Partner directly for purposes of obtaining support.


    2. Exclusions.


      OWC shall have no obligation to support: (i) altered or damaged Software or any portion of any Software incorporated with or into other software and/or hardware other than Products; (ii) any software that is not the then current release of the Software or immediately Previous Sequential Release; (iii) Software problems caused by Customer’s negligence, abuse or misapplication, use of the Software other than as specified in OWC’s user manual or other causes beyond the control of OWC; (iv) Software installed on any hardware that is not supported by OWC; or (v) third party products not provided by OWC.

      Any guidance or direction OWC provides to Customer will only be based on the information provided by Customer to OWC as OWC’s Customer. Many factors in your environment are unknown to OWC and can affect advice, problems, outcomes, or recommended solutions. OWC cannot and will not accept any culpability or responsibility due to potential omissions or misunderstandings. Also, be advised that technology changes. As a result of these changes in technology, products Customer is using might be affected both directly and indirectly. OWC cannot and will not be responsible or liable for any consequences that can occur due to any change in technology, or in conjunction with the use of information provided by OWC under these circumstances. Proceeding with communications, orders, and interactions between Customer and OWC is indication that you understand and agree with this statement.

This Remote Access Subscription Agreement (this “Agreement”) contains the terms and conditions that govern your access and use of Other World Computing Inc.’s (“OWC”) Remote Access (the “Services”) and is an agreement between OWC and you or your entity (“you” or “your”). This Agreement takes effect when you click an “I Accept” button or check box presented with these terms or, if earlier, when you use any of the Services beyond the seven (7) day free trial period (the “Effective Date”). You represent to us that you are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g., you are not a minor). If you are entering into this Agreement for an entity, such as the company you work for, you represent to us that you have legal authority to bind that entity. You are not entitled to Remote Access services unless you have ordered and paid for such services as provided in the Agreement.


      1. OWC Services. This is a legal Agreement between You and OWC for use of the OWC Remote Access Services, a managed Virtual Private Network (VPN) that provides remote, restricted access to the OWC Jellyfish. This adds secure, remote access to the OWC Jellyfish-based storage workflow while retaining both the performance and security of the OWC Jellyfish system's local environment. Because use of the Services involves hardware, software, and Internet access, your ability to use the Services may be affected by the performance of these elements. You acknowledge and agree that such system requirements, which may change from time to time, are your responsibility.  “Services” in this Agreement does not refer to or include any professional services or works for hire.  The Parties to this Agreement are independent contractors, and this Agreement shall not be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, employment, or principal agent relationship between the Parties.
      1. Customer Information. You may be required to provide information in order to register for and/or use certain Services. You warrant that all such information is accurate.  All such information is your Confidential Information (as defined in Section 7(a) herein).
      1. Credit Card Payment. OWC may, in its sole discretion, agree to allow you to pay fees by debit or credit card (that is, “charge” you). If you will pay by charge, you agree to provide OWC with an authorized credit card name, number and date of expiration, and proper debit authorization for purposes of allowing OWC to charge the applicable account to collect fees due under this Agreement. By authorizing OWC to charge a credit or charge card, you are authorizing OWC or its respective designated representatives or agents to automatically continue charging that card (or any replacement credit card account if the original card is renewed, lost, stolen, or changed for any reason by the credit-issuing entity, and such entity informs OWC of such new replacement card account) until this Agreement is terminated and all fees are paid in full. If your credit card fails to validly pay the fees due, OWC may terminate or suspend, in its sole discretion, your access to any of the Services. Current Subscription service fees can be found at https://www.lumaforge.com/blog/jellyfish-remote-access-faq.
      1. Term and Termination of Agreement.
      1. Term.  This Agreement will commence on the date you accept this Agreement and shall continue in effect for a period of twelve (12) months thereafter (the “Initial Term”), unless earlier terminated as provided herein, or as agreed upon on the Sales Quotation or Sales Order.  Unless either Party provides written notice of nonrenewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the Initial Term, the Initial Term will automatically renew.  OWC reserves the right to increase the price of any service or fee prior to the commencement of any renewal term. OWC warrants the performance and specification of the Service, as referenced in Section 8 below, and you have thirty (30) days from the execution of this Agreement in which to cancel your subscription without penalty in the event OWC does not meet its obligations in the Service Warranty, as defined in Section 8, and cannot cure any reported and confirmed defects within a reasonable period of time.

Material Breach.  Either Party may terminate this Agreement if the other Party materially breaches its obligations hereunder and such breach remains uncured for thirty (30) days following receipt of written notice by the non-breaching Party specifying the nature of the breach.  OWC will provide the OWC Services, and you will provide prompt payment for such Services in compliance with the terms set forth in Section 3 above. Failure to meet these obligations will constitute a material breach and the terms of this Section will apply.  In the event that this Agreement is terminated pursuant to this Section due to OWC’s material breach, all future payment obligations by you shall also terminate, and to the extent that you have pre-paid for any portion of Services after the effective date of termination, such pre-payment shall be refunded to you by OWC.
      1. ii. Bankruptcy.  Either Party may terminate this Agreement by written notice to the other upon: (i) the filing of any voluntary petition by the other Party or upon the filing of any involuntary petition against either Party under the Bankruptcy Code that is not dismissed within thirty (30) calendar days after filing; (ii) any appointment of a receiver for all or any portion of the other Party’s business or operations; (iii) any assignment of all or substantially all the assets of the other Party for the benefit of creditors; (iv) the other Party’s  adjudication as being bankrupt by a court with competent jurisdiction; (v) the other Party becomes insolvent; or (vi) the other Party ceasing all or substantially all of its operations.
