6.3 Failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver. No waiver of any provision hereof shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by the waiving party. The failure of any party to require the performance of any term or obligation of this Agreement or applicable SaaS Order Form, or the waiver by any party of any breach of said documents, shall not prevent any subsequent enforcement of such term or obligation or be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach. A waiver on one occasion shall not be a waiver of any right or remedy on any future occasion.

The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to portions or components of the Service (i) not supplied by AtlasRTX, (ii) made in whole or in part in accordance with Client specifications, (iii) that are modified after delivery by AtlasRTX, (iv) combined with other products, processes or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (v) where Client continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (vi) where Client’s use of the Service is not strictly in accordance with this Agreement. If, due to a claim of infringement, the Services are held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be or are believed by AtlasRTX to be infringing, AtlasRTX may, at its option and expense (a) replace or modify the Service to be non-infringing provided that such modification or replacement contains substantially similar features and functionality, (b) obtain for Client a license to continue using the Service, or (c) if neither of the foregoing is commercially practicable, terminate this Agreement and Client’s rights here under and provide Client a refund of any prepaid, unused fees for the Service.
