On the delivery date the Product and license key will be accessible in Microsoft Lifecycle Service (LCS) or other location specified by CGI. It is up to the SUBSCRIBER to download the software and apply it to the environments of the SUBSCRIBER.
Relevant service packs and releases of the Product(s) (called "Updates") are made available to the SUBSCRIBER within a reasonable time no more than 4 months after a new release or service pack is made accessible by MS to Microsoft Dynamics 365 – Enterprise edition. However, the Updates will not be provided automatically to the SUBSCRIBER but will be accessible in Microsoft Lifecycle Service (LCS) or other location specified by CGI. It is up to the SUBSCRIBER to download new Updates and apply to the environments of the SUBSCRIBER. CGI will endeavor to continue to enhance the Product(s) , for instance by addressing reported alleged defects and inadequacies and altering the Product(s) in such a way as to seek to bring the Product(s) into conformity with new releases of Microsoft Dynamics 365 – Enterprise edition.
CGI undertakes that the Product(s) and any Updates thereof performed by CGI under these CSLT (the Updated Product(s)) is compatible with the MS current supported versions of standard Microsoft Dynamics 365 – Enterprise edition. CGI is not able to influence new releases of other third party software, for which reason CGI cannot in any way warrant that the Update(s) and/or the Updated Product(s) will be compatible with any or all new releases, versions etc. of such third party software issued from time to time.
5.4. Customized Modifications:
New Updates made by CGI will be based on the standard edition of the Product(s). Consequently, CGI cannot under this CSLT in any way guarantee that such individual modification - regardless of such modifications having been made by CGI - will operate uninterrupted after installing Updates and/or Updated Product(s).
The Product(s) is supplied "as is" with no warranties, representations or remedies for breach other than what has been set forth herein this Clause 6.1 and Clause 7.
6.2. Limited warranties.
CGI warrants that each version of the Product(s) will perform substantially as described in the applicable Software Description.
Where SUBSCRIBER within 30 days of the commencement date of the CSA provides documentary evidence of the Product(s) not substantially performing in accordance with CGI's Software Description (a Defect) and such Defect has a material impact on SUBSCRIBER's use of the Product(s), CGI shall use - at CGI's sole discretion - a commercially reasonable effort to correct or remedy such Defects. Should CGI fail to correct or remedy such Defect within a reasonable time, SUBSCRIBER shall be entitled to terminate these CSLT and demand a refund of the payment(s) effected pursuant to these CSLT.
6.3. Fit for purpose:
CGI does not warrant that the Product(s) are fit for any specific business purpose or will fulfil the SUBSCRIBER's intended use or business aim ("specific purpose"), whether the SUBSCRIBER has informed CGI of such specific purpose or not, unless CGI in writing - including the Software Description - has confirmed the suitability of the Product(s).
6.4. Obligations to test:
Nothing in this Clause 6 relieves the SUBSCRIBER from his obligation to investigate and test the Product(s) immediately upon delivery.
6.5. SUBSCRIBER's Choice of Product(s):
SUBSCRIBER acknowledges that the Product(s) is a standard product, freely chosen by SUBSCRIBER. CGI makes no warranty in pursuance of these CSLT for its compliance with SUBSCRIBER's requirements and purposes. For the same reason it is of no concern to CGI whether the Product(s) is immediately usable by SUBSCRIBER or whether individual modifications are required in order to enable SUBSCRIBER to gain any, including the optimum or intended benefit from the Product(s) and CGI cannot guarantee or warrant that any and/or all errors, omissions and/or inadequacies are corrected or remedied.
6.6. Continuation of rights:
CGI warrants and represents that it has, and will throughout the term of these CSLT, obtain and maintain sufficient rights and authority to grant to SUBSCRIBER the licenses described in these CSLT.
The warranties in this agreement do not cover problems caused by accident, abuse or use in a manner inconsistent with this CSLT, including failure to meet minimum system requirements.
CGI PROVIDES NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS APPART FROM WHAT IS EXPLICITLY STATED IN THIS CLAUSE 6 AND DISCLAIMS ANY OTHER EXPRESSED, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF QUALITY, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
7. Infringement and Indemnification
7.1. Reporting and Settlement Negotiations:
Where a third party raises an infringement claim against SUBSCRIBER with respect to the Product(s), SUBSCRIBER shall notify CGI in writing to this effect. CGI shall then take over and conduct the defence and bear all costs incidental to the case and shall at its own discretion settle the case by settlement negotiations, legal action or in some other manner. CGI shall - with respect of any obligations of confidentiality towards any third party and any reasonable commercial considerations - keep SUBSCRIBER reasonably informed of the progress of the defence.
7.2. Hold Harmless:
CGI shall hold SUBSCRIBER harmless for such third party claims, including unavoidable lawyer's fees and necessary and unavoidable costs, compensation and other costs that may be awarded the plaintiff, provided always that this shall be subject to Clause 8 herein.
Where CGI infringes the right of a third party, CGI may - at CGI's sole discretion - remedy the defect either by i) changing or replacing the infringing services and/or item(s) in order to perform the CSLT or ii) procure the right for SUBSCRIBER to continue using the Product(s) or iii) terminate these CSLT without notice and refund the payment(s) effected pursuant to these CSLT covering the period where the third party claim and or injunction prohibited SUBSCRIBER from using the Product(s).
The remedies set forth above herein Clause 7, including damages, are SUBSCRIBER's sole remedies for the infringement of third party rights.
The above obligations for CGI shall be conditional upon SUBSCRIBER providing CGI with customary and reasonable assistance for the correct processing of the case. Any alterations to the Product(s) performed by any person other than CGI shall invalidate the above obligations with respect to every part of the Product(s) which has been changed or affected by such an alteration. Furthermore, these obligations shall not apply where the infringement claim has arisen out of abuse or incorrect use of the Product(s).
8. Limitation of Liability
8.1. Limitation of Liability:
In no event shall CGI, irrespective of the circumstances, be liable for lost profits, loss of data, damage to registrations and/or data and/or any form of indirect, specifically documented, incidental or consequential losses or damage, lost goodwill or losses arising out of any other form of business interruption in connection with or as a result of the use of the Product(s) or other software, irrespective of whether or not CGI has been notified of the possibility of such a loss and irrespective of whether such a loss has been incurred in contract or in tort. SUBSCRIBER shall thus not be entitled to claim, demand or seek compensation from CGI for any of the above losses based on services supplied in accordance with these CSLT. CGI’s liability shall not in any case exceed an amount equal to the payment(s) effected pursuant to these CSLT in the previous 12-month period. If a 12-month period has not passed, then the liability shall not exceed a proportional part of such payment(s) relatively to the actually passed time.
8.2. Force Majeure:
Neither Party shall be liable for damage or loss incurred by the other Party as a direct or indirect consequence of that Party’s inability to perform these CSLT due to extraordinary circumstances (force majeure or Acts of God).

9. Payment and Terms of Payment
The Subscription fee is invoiced for twelve (12) months in advance –the “Subscription Period”, as from the commencement date.

Invoices for the Subscription fee fall due for payment within thirty (30) days of the invoice date.

In the event of new or changed duties after Commencement Date of the CSA, prices shall be adjusted so that CGI’s position remains unchanged.
9.4. Number of End users:
The minimum configuration of the Product requires the purchase of 20 Full User licenses and the total number of licensed End Users for the Product must at all times be equal to the number of End Users licensed for Microsoft Dynamics 365.
9.5. License Audit
CGI Danmark A/S is entitled to perform a license audit once every twelve (12) Months to verify that the correct number of End Users have been licensed. This may require that CGI is given access to the productions environment.
10. Commencement, Term and Termination
The CSLT shall commence upon CGI’s written acceptance of the CSA and shall continue in force unless SUBSCRIBER breaches even one of its obligations pursuant to the provisions of the CSLT.
The CSA term is for the Subscription Period (se Clause 9.1) until terminated by a Party with no less than three (3) month’s written notice to the expiration of a Subscription Period.
10.3. Automatic renewal:
Where the CSA has not been terminated in accordance with Clause 10.2. above the subscription will automatically be renewed for a further subscription period.
10.4. Consequences of Breach:
Instances of breach of the CSA shall entitle CGI to terminate the CSA unless the event constituting the breach has been discontinued not later than 10 working days after CGI has posted a written demand to this effect. In case of a breach CGI is always entitled to demand compensation for loss or damage in accordance with applicable law.
10.5. On Termination:
Where the CSA terminates – for whatever reason; SUBSCRIBER shall destroy and/or ensure that all copies of the Product(s), the documentation and any other deliveries under the CSA forthwith is destroyed and confirm to CGI in writing that this has taken place.

The CSLT shall be subject to Danish law - also excluding the UN-Convention on Contract for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) - and in spite of any local or international choice-of-law rules which would result in the application of foreign law. Unless otherwise stated, the general rules of Danish law shall apply to the relationship as between the Parties. Any dispute arising out of or relating to these CSLT shall be settled before the City Court in Ballerup, Denmark.
