9.0 MISCELLANEOUS

 

9.1 Licensee agrees to allow Licensor to inspect and will furnish as specified in Section 9.2 below all documents disclosing Technical Data prepared and/or generated by Licensee as a result of performance of the Subject Contract(s), which shall be Licensee Proprietary Data, during the term of this Agreement and used by Licensee to deploy the cultivation technology. Licensee agrees to furnish Licensor with copies of such documents per Section 9.2 below, subject to Licensor paying Licensee's reasonable costs of assembling, updating, reproducing and shipping such documentation, and protecting such Data in accordance with Section 3.4(c) hereof. The Technical Data referred to in this Section 9.1 shall not include any information which is proprietary to and/or in the possession or used by subcontractors/vendors of Licensee, including any intellectual property rights.

 

9.2 Any prohibition against the payment of sums due hereunder will not absolve Licensee from the obligation of making such payments, but will serve to defer the date of payment hereunder until permissible, unless Licensor elects to accept payment in such form as may be permissible. Should making payment of the sums due under this Agreement not be possible by any means, for reasons beyond the control of Licensee, the parties hereto will attempt, in joint consultation, to find possibilities under which the interests of Licensor may be met in an appropriate manner. In the event these efforts do not result in a successful solution, Licensor may terminate the Agreement under Section 7.3 or 7.6 with respect to the specific contract under which payment is not made. However, such termination shall not affect the obligations to make payment of the sums then due and payable.

 

9.3 Any prohibition against the payment of sums due hereunder will not absolve Licensor from the obligation of making such payments, but will serve to defer the date of payment hereunder until permissible, unless Licensee elects to accept payment in such form as may be permissible. Should making payment of the sums due under this Agreement not be possible by any means, for reasons beyond the control of Licensor, the parties hereto will attempt, in joint consultation, to find possibilities under which the interests of Licensee may be met in an appropriate manner. In the event these efforts do not result in a successful solution, Licensee may terminate the license. However, such termination shall not affect the obligations to make payment of the sums then due and payable.

 

9.4 All disputes, claims, and controversies concerning the validity, interpretation, performance, or breach of this agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, without regard to conflicts of laws.

 

9.5 Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee may, with the consent or approval of Licensor which will not be withheld unreasonably as long as such transfer has been approved by State of [INSERT STATE HERE] relevant licensing authority(s), and by payment of a transfer fee to the Licensor of $10,000 upon notification of such intent), assign this agreement to any party which purchases or succeeds to all or substantially all of the assets of Licensee, provided that such purchaser, successor or assignee agrees to be bound by the terms of this agreement and receives a cannabis cultivation permit from the State of [INSERT STATE HERE]. Once the notification has been provided and the $10,000 transfer fee has been paid, the new ownership group shall also be bound by this provision while this License or any future extension is in force and will be allowed the same transfer option as stated herein.

 

9.6 The Licensee understands the nature and performance representations of this cultivation deployment will be dependent upon a substantial number of variables not under the control of the Licensor as they relate to 1) strains cultivated, 2) harvest cycles, 3) plant handling and care, 4) staffing and facility management actions and decisions, 5) financial support or performance, etc. and further acknowledges that the results as actually achieved may vary from those experienced by the representative operator in Denver Colorado (Medicine Man Production Corporation), represented in this specific deployment initiative. The Licensee also understands and acknowledges that should it elect to modify or in any way change the details or methods of construction/design related to this cultivation deployment, it does so at its sole discretion and risk.
