3.0 License Grants.

3.1 SDK. During the Term, and subject to the terms of this agreement, 3M grants Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, personal, revocable, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license to use the SDK to develop Licensee Applications solely for use with the 3M Software and 3M Compatible Devices. Licensee may install the SDK on a reasonable number of Licensee computers and make a reasonable number of copies of the Documentation, provided that all such copies shall retain all copyright notices and other proprietary legends accompanying the original.

3.2 Distributable Code. Subject to the terms of this agreement, 3M grants Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, personal, revocable, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license to distribute, as object code only, Distributable Code to End Users solely for such End Users' use of a Licensee Application with a Compatible 3M Device. Licensee may make a reasonable number of copies of the Distributable Code as required for such distribution, provided that all such copies shall retain all copyright notices and other proprietary legends accompanying the original.

3.2.1 End User License Agreement ("AGREEMENT"). The Distributable code may include proprietary and/or open source code. Each Licensee Application containing Distributable Code, in whole or in part, and any modification or derivative work thereof, shall be distributed to End Users in accordance with any third party licenses accompanying such code. Licensor is solely responsible for implementing the requirements of such licenses, including but not limited to availability of source code and display of any required proprietary notices and attribution statements.

3.3 Nothing herein shall be deemed to grant Licensee any right, title or interest in the 3M Software. Any use or distribution of the 3M Software requires a separate license agreement. This Agreement governs the SDK, including any updates, upgrades and new releases thereof, unless they are accompanied by a separate written agreement.

5.0 End User Notification.

The Compatible 3M Device contains 3M Software with three predefined Littmann filters for sounds in the Bell, Diaphragm and Extended Range modes as well as a fourth unfiltered data mode. Any audio data received by the Licensee Application from a Compatible 3M Device and retransmitted to a Compatible 3M Device shall not be altered or modified in any way. In no event shall Licensee misrepresent the Littmann® Bell, Diaphragm and Extended Range modes. If any alteration to or modification of audio data received from a Compatible 3M Device has been made by the Licensee Application or the audio sounds are being listened to through devices other than Compatible 3M Devices (including, but not limited to PC speakers, external speakers, or headphones), Licensee shall clearly display the following notices to End Users:

(i) in the Instructions For Use:
During an active streaming session, the Consultant has the option of using the Littmann® Stethoscope Model 3200 to listen to the streaming auscultation, the speaker system inherent to the PC, or speakers connected to the audio jack of the PC, such as headphones, desktop speakers, etc.:

"CAUTION: The audio quality of the sounds played through the PC speakers or PC audio jack may not be a faithful reproduction of the actual sounds due to the acoustical performance of the PC's sound card, sound card drivers, and/or the frequency response of the headphones/speakers, potentially resulting in not being able to hear clinically relevant sounds. It is strongly recommended that a 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope Model 3200 is used to listen to the auscultation session as the sound quality at the remote site will be equivalent to what is heard at the local site."

(ii) in the Licensee Application user interface:
"CAUTION: It is strongly recommended that a 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope Model 3200 is used to listen to the auscultation session as the sound quality at the remote site will be equivalent to what is heard at the local site."

6.2 Termination for Cause. 3M may terminate this Agreement in the event of Licensee's breach thereof that is not cured within ten (10) days of Licensee's receipt of notice of such breach. In addition, 3M may immediately terminate this Agreement for cause in the event that, using commercially reasonable efforts, 3M is unable to obtain or retain any third-party right or license required for 3M to provide Licensee with the rights and licenses granted herein.

6.3 Termination for Convenience. 3M may terminate this Agreement for convenience, with or without cause, upon thirty (30) days written notice to Licensee.

Licensee agrees to keep the SDK (except Distributable Code distributed in accordance with Section 3.3), the terms of this Agreement including but not limited to non-public information regarding the 3M Software and 3M Compatible Devices ("Confidential Information") strictly confidential, using the same level of care it uses to protect its own highly confidential information but no less than reasonable care.

In no event shall Licensee disclose the SDK, or any concepts or ideas based on or arising from the SDK as provided to Licensee hereunder, to any third party, including any patent office on a worldwide basis, without the prior written consent of 3M. Licensee agrees to return all Confidential Information to 3M or, at 3M's option, certify its destruction in writing, upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement

.

10.0 Independent Development.

Nothing in this Agreement will impair 3M's right to develop, acquire, license, market, promote, or distribute products or technologies that perform the same or similar functions as, or otherwise compete with Licensee Applications or any other products or technologies that Licensee may develop, produce, market, or distribute.

11.0 Relationship of Parties and Third Party Beneficiaries.

This Agreement will not be construed as creating an agency, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary duty, or any other form of legal association between Licensee and 3M, and Licensee will not represent to the contrary, whether expressly, by implication, appearance, or otherwise. This Agreement is not intended for the benefit of any third parties.

Licensee shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations, legal restrictions and requirements regarding the manufacturing, marketing, distribution and sale of the Licensee Application, including but not limited to any regulations promulgated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") and other such agencies. Licensee shall not seek regulatory permission to market the Licensee Application, alone or in combination with the 3M Software or a Compatible 3M Device, or make any representations that would subject 3M to additional legal or regulatory requirements. If the Licensee Application is used to store, process or transmit Protected Health Information, Licensee shall be solely responsible for compliance with applicable information privacy laws, including the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

13.0 WARRANTY DISCLAIMER.
