5.† LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.† TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN
NO EVENT WILL BEA OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST REVENUE,

contractor or subcontractor (at any tier), then the Government's
rights in Software and accompanying documentation will be only as set
forth in this Agreement; this is in accordance with 48 CFR 227.7201

10. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be
unenforceable, this Agreement will remain in effect with the provision
omitted, unless omission would frustrate the intent of the parties, in
which case this Agreement will immediately terminate.



11. Integration.† This Agreement is the entire agreement between you
and BEA relating to its subject matter.† It supersedes all prior or
contemporaneous oral or written communications, proposals,
representations and warranties and prevails over any conflicting or
additional terms of any quote, order, acknowledgment, or other
communication between the parties relating to its subject matter
during the term of this Agreement.† No modification of this Agreement
will be binding, unless in writing and signed by an authorized
representative of each party.
