At its expense and with reasonable written notice to you, Progress or a third party appointed by Progress may audit these books, records, and if necessary, the systems on which the Rollbase Platform is installed for the sole purpose of ensuring compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Progress shall have the right to conduct follow-up audits as necessary. All audits shall be conducted during regular business hours at your offices and shall not interfere unreasonably with your business activities. Progress shall treat all such records and books as confidential information. If any audit reveals that you have underpaid license or support fees, you will be invoiced for all such underpaid fees based on the Progress list price in effect at the time the audit is completed. If the underpaid fees are in excess of five percent (5%) of the fees you previously paid, then you agree to also pay Progress’ reasonable costs of conducting the audit and enforcement of this Agreement.

22. General. This Agreement and the Policies constitute the entire agreement between you and Progress and govern your use of the Rollbase Platform, and supersede any other prior or contemporaneous agreement, proposal, communication or advertising, oral or written, signed or unsigned, between you and Progress with respect to the Rollbase Platform; except that if you have entered into a mutually executed written agreement with Progress in connection with your access to and use of the Rollbase Platform; then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the mutually executed agreement between you and Progress will supersede this Agreement and will govern your access to and use of the Rollbase Platform. In the event of conflict between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any Policy incorporated herein by reference, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall govern. To the extent there are any terms and conditions contained in your purchase order or other documentation supplied by you such terms and conditions shall be deemed stricken and the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall govern. Except as otherwise expressly provided for herein, this Agreement shall not be changed, modified or altered in any manner except by an instrument in writing and signed by both parties. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of Progress to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement. You may not assign this Agreement or any rights hereunder and may not delegate any duties under this Agreement without Progress’ prior written consent. Any attempt to assign or delegate this Agreement without such consent will be null and void.
