Any upgrades, updates and fixes provided hereunder shall be at BackWeb's sole discretion, and BackWeb reserves the right to modify its policies regarding the provision, pricing, or availability of upgrades, updates and fixes at any time. c. PAYMENT. All amounts invoiced to VAR by BackWeb for the purchase of Software units are due immediately upon receipt of BackWeb's invoice (which shall not be issued prior to shipment of the Software) therefor to the address or account specified in the relevant invoice, and shall be considered overdue if not paid within thirty (30) days from the date of the applicable invoice, unless otherwise set forth in Exhibit B. If BackWeb in its sole discretion determines that VAR's credit rating or payment record hereunder does not merit "net-30" terms, BackWeb can require that VAR pay all license and other fees prior to delivery of such Software units or services. On overdue balances, BackWeb may charge VAR a daily interest rate at the lower of 1% per month or the maximum permitted by applicable law, and may also suspend delivery of Software. d. TAXES.

During the same time period, VAR shall permit BackWeb and/or its independent accountants to audit the applicable VAR records and facilities in order to verify VAR's compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Any such audit will be conducted during regular business hours at VAR facilities and will be paid for by BackWeb, unless the amount that should have been paid to BackWeb is greater than 5% of the amount reported by VAR, in which case VAR shall reimburse BackWeb for all audit costs in addition to the underpaid amounts and interest due thereon. f. VAR FEES. All fees charged by VAR to End Users for the VAR Product Software, support and maintenance shall be at VAR's sole discretion. g. PRICE PROTECTION. Changes to the BackWeb standard price list for products and services will be communicated to VAR in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the date such price change takes effect.

Additional price protection terms, if any, are set forth in Exhibit B. 5. DELIVERY a. ORDERS. VAR must submit written purchase orders to BackWeb for the purchase of Software in a format approved by BackWeb, or shall pay BackWeb for all Software units shipped on a periodic basis, as agreed upon in writing by BackWeb. Such purchase order shall serve only to designate requested quantities and shipment dates; the terms of this Agreement and the applicable BackWeb acceptance or invoice will govern the purchase of Software hereunder and all other terms are rejected. All purchase orders are subject to acceptance by BackWeb; however, if not rejected in writing within seven (7) days of submission, the order is deemed accepted. Any cancellation of a purchase order by VAR must be submitted to BackWeb in writing and received by BackWeb at least ten (10) days prior to BackWeb's scheduled shipment date. For VAR designated as a Systems Integrator hereunder, after VAR's initial order of Software, BackWeb will invoice VAR promptly upon BackWeb's receipt of the monthly report due from VAR in accordance with Section 3.c; VAR may submit a confirming purchase order, but VAR agrees that the monthly report shall serve as BackWeb's authorization to invoice all amounts due for Software shipped by VAR as reported. 2 <PAGE> b. SHIPMENT. BackWeb will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet VAR's requested delivery dates; however, all BackWeb delivery dates, unless otherwise specified, are only estimates for VAR's planning purposes and are not binding. In its sole discretion, BackWeb may refuse to accept purchase orders, allocate the acceptance of purchase orders among its distributors or VARs in the Territory, deliver partial shipments (only with VAR's prior written consent), delay shipments, or reschedule shipments of Software without incurring any liability therefor. VAR acknowledges that BackWeb will not be liable for any damages, whether direct, special, consequential or otherwise, to VAR or to any third party for the failure to deliver Software or for any delay or error in delivery of Software for any reason whatsoever. (This Section not applicable to Systems Integrators after BackWeb ships initial copy of Software to VAR.) c. RETURNS. BackWeb will not accept returns of Software units from VAR nor will BackWeb provide VAR with any allowance, credit or discount for Software which VAR may wish to return, or for other fees paid or due BackWeb hereunder. d. RISK OF LOSS. The Software shall be shipped FOB the appropriate BackWeb facility and risk of loss for all Software from the point of shipment shall fall upon VAR, whose responsibility it shall be to file any appropriate claims with the carrier regardless of the party listed as consignee. All transportation charges, including insurance, shall be made by BackWeb for VAR's account, and shall be invoiced to VAR, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties and set forth in Exhibit B hereto. 6. TITLE/OWNERSHIP a. TITLE. Title, ownership rights and all Intellectual Property Rights in the Software belong exclusively to BackWeb and/or its licensors. All references in this Agreement to the "sale" or "purchase" of the Software signify only the delivery of Software to VAR subject to the terms set forth in this Agreement. This Agreement grants no additional express or implied license, right or interest in any copyright, patent, trade secret, trade name, Mark, invention or other Intellectual Property Right of BackWeb. VAR will not sell, assign, lease, transfer, encumber or allow any security interest on the Software, or take any action that would cause the Software to be placed in the public domain. b. MARKS. Any use of Marks must be approved in advance by BackWeb in its sole discretion. Subject to the foregoing, VAR shall include all applicable Marks in any literature, promotion or advertising which it produces or distributes concerning the VAR Products, and any such permitted use, advertising, distribution, or reproduction shall be solely in connection with VAR's exercise of its marketing and distribution rights hereunder. All Marks shall be in the form, location, and quality specified by BackWeb in accordance with its guidelines for the use of the Marks, which may be updated from time to time. The grant to use the Marks hereunder does not grant any right to assign, sub-license or otherwise permit the use of the Marks by any other party. Upon termination of this Agreement, VAR shall have no further right to use, advertise, reproduce, or distribute such Marks and shall cease all such use of the Marks and will not thereafter use any mark that is confusingly similar to the Marks to market or distribute its products. VAR agrees that its use of the Marks hereunder shall inure to the benefit of BackWeb and that VAR shall not take any action inconsistent with such ownership (including any act or omission which infringe or encourage infringement of the Marks in the Software). c. BREACH. VAR agrees to use reasonable efforts to protect BackWeb's Intellectual Property Rights (not rising to the level of writing letters), and to cooperate at BackWeb's sole expense in efforts to protect such rights. VAR further agrees to promptly notify BackWeb of any suspected breach of BackWeb's Intellectual Property Rights of which VAR becomes aware. d. VAR'S MARKS. BackWeb will not use VAR's name, logo, trademarks or service marks in any public communication or public medium with respect to this Agreement or its performance without VAR's prior written consent. 7. CONFIDENTIALITY a. NONDISCLOSURE OBLIGATIONS. Neither party shall use or disclose any Confidential Information of the other party. The party receiving Confidential Information from the other shall use a commercially reasonable degree of care to protect such Confidential Information, including ensuring that its employees and subcontractors receive Confidential Information only on a need-to-know basis and have agreed in writing not to disclose the Confidential Information. Each party shall promptly notify the other of any actual or suspected unauthorized use or disclosure of such party's Confidential Information, and shall provide reasonable assistance, at the disclosing party's cost, in the investigation and prosecution of such unauthorized use or disclosure. b. EXCEPTIONS TO NONDISCLOSURE OBLIGATIONS. The obligations of the parties under the foregoing section shall not apply to any materials or information that: (i) is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the recipient or its employees or contractors; (ii) is known to a party at the time of disclosure as demonstrated by written documentation pre-dating such disclosure; (iii) is disclosed to a party by a third party which has a right to do so; or (iv) is required to be disclosed pursuant to an order of any competent governmental authority, court or agency, provided the disclosing party shall furnish prior notice to the other party, and give such other party an opportunity to oppose disclosure or (v) is independently developed. c. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. Monetary damages will not be an adequate remedy if this Section 7 is breached; therefore, either party may, in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, seek an injunction or similar equitable relief against such breach. 8. LIMITED WARRANTIES/LIMITATION OF LIABILITY a. LIMITED WARRANTY. BackWeb warrants that to the best of BackWeb's knowledge, the Software or the Marks do not violate any third party's patents, trade secrets, trademarks or copyrights or other intellectual property rights hereof and that the Software is Y2K compliant. b. INDEMNIFICATION BY BACKWEB. BackWeb shall, at its expense, indemnify and hold VAR harmless from and against any award of damages or BackWeb-approved settlement arising from a claim based on an allegation that the Software infringes a third party's intellectual property rights as set forth in the preceding section, provided that: (i) VAR promptly gives BackWeb written notice of the claim; (ii) VAR provides all reasonable assistance in the defense of the claim; and (iii) BackWeb controls the defense or settlement of the claim. If a permanent injunction is obtained against the use of the Software or if, in BackWeb's opinion, such an injunction is likely to be obtained, BackWeb may, at its sole option, obtain the right to continued use of the Software, substitute other functionally equivalent software, modify the Software so it is no longer infringing and is functionally equivalent, or terminate the licenses in the Software units sold to VAR, crediting VAR an amount equal to license fees paid for such Software licenses only hereunder on a depreciated basis over a five (5) year term. The foregoing indemnity does not apply to any infringement claim arising if the Software: (i) has been modified by parties other than BackWeb or without BackWeb's prior written authorization to do so; (ii) has been used in conjunction with other software and/or hardware which gives rise to an infringement claim if the use of the Software alone would not give rise to such infringing situation; or (iii) is other than the most current version if use of such current version would have avoided the infringing situation. c. LIMITATION. THE FOREGOING SECTIONS SET FORTH THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF BACKWEB AND VAR'S SOLE REMEDIES FOR INFRINGEMENT AND ALLEGATIONS OF INFRINGEMENT BY THE SOFTWARE OF THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE INSTALLATION, MAINTENANCE, OPERATION, DESIGN, DISTRIBUTION OR USE OF THE SOFTWARE. d. INDEMNIFICATION BY VAR. VAR shall, at its expense, indemnify and hold BackWeb harmless from and against any award of damages or VAR-approved settlement to the extent caused by a claim based on an allegation 3 <PAGE> that VAR has fraudulently misrepresented the terms of this Agreement, functions, aspects and capabilities of the Software, or for any warranty offered by VAR to an End User that is inconsistent with or beyond the warranties offered by BackWeb in its printed literature, provided that: (i) BackWeb promptly gives VAR written notice of the claim; (ii) BackWeb provides all reasonable assistance in the defense of the claim; and (iii) VAR controls the defense or settlement of the claim for which BackWeb seeks indemnification. e. NO OTHER WARRANTIES. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTIES SET FORTH ABOVE, TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, VAR ACCEPTS THE SOFTWARE "AS IS", WITH NO OTHER WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, OR IMPLIED BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF PERFORMANCE, SERVICES TO VAR OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON, NONINFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN BACKWEB'S END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT ACCOMPANYING THE SOFTWARE. BackWeb makes no warranties that the Software will satisfy VAR's needs or function without interruption, errors or defects. Additionally, BackWeb makes no warranties regarding the applications developed with the Software, or regarding Software that has been modified or altered by any party other than BackWeb, or to any problems caused by computer hardware or operating systems. f. LIMITED LIABILITY. TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL BACKWEB OR ITS LICENSORS OR VAR BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOST DATA OR LOST PROFITS) EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. EACH PARTY'S TOTAL LIABILITY TO THE OTHER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR A CLAIM OF ANY KIND RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT OR WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF LICENSE FEES PAID TO BACKWEB BY OR DUE FROM VAR WITHIN THE TWELVE MONTHS PRIOR TO THE CLAIM. EXCEPT FOR ACTIONS PURSUANT TO BACKWEB'S OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 8.b, NO ACTION, REGARDLESS OF FORM, ARISING OUT OF THE TRANSACTIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT MAY BE BROUGHT BY VAR MORE THAN ONE YEAR AFTER THE EVENTS WHICH GAVE RISE TO THE CAUSE OF ACTION. THE DIRECT DAMAGES CAP CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION 8.f SHALL NOT APPLY TO BACKWEB'S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE INFRINGEMENT INDEMNIFICATION IN SECTION 8.b AND VAR'S OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTIONS 2.b. 9. TERM AND TERMINATION a. TERM. This Agreement shall remain in effect until the expiration date set forth in Exhibit A, unless earlier terminated or renewed for an additional period of time. b. RENEWAL.

TERMINATION. This Agreement may be terminated for the following: (i) without cause, upon ninety (90) days' written notice to the other party, (ii) by BackWeb, if VAR fails to make any payments due hereunder within thirty (30) days after BackWeb delivers notice of such default to VAR; (iii) by either party on thirty (30) days' written notice to the other party if such party fails to perform any other material obligation required of it hereunder, and such failure is not cured within such thirty (30) day period; (iv) by a party upon the bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, liquidation, composition for the benefit of creditors or similar financial downturn of the other party; or (v) in the event VAR concludes the existence of this Agreement constitutes actual, or the appearance of, impairment of independence with respect to any PricewaterhouseCoopers audit client, this Agreement shall be subject to termination by VAR upon 15 days prior written notice to BackWeb. d.

(iii) BackWeb or its designee shall provide support and maintenance services to End Users in the Territory, and VAR shall not attempt to contact such End Users for any purpose related specifically to ongoing support of the Software, but may contact such End Users related with the non-Software portions of the VAR Product. (iv) All outstanding amounts due to a party will become immediately due and payable regardless of whether longer terms had previously been agreed between the parties. Neither party will have any right to receive any compensation from the other party solely as a result of such termination, and neither party to the Agreement shall be liable to the other for compensation, reimbursement or damages on account of present or prospective profits on sales, the creation of goodwill in the Software, or expenditures, investments or commitments made in connection in the performance of obligations hereunder.

MISCELLANEOUS a. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS. BackWeb and VAR are independent contractors and shall represent themselves as such in all regards. Neither the custom nor dealing of the parties nor any provision of this Agreement shall be construed to render the parties to be joint venturers, partners, associates, master/servant or employer/employee. Neither party may bind the other in any manner except as expressly set forth herein. b. ASSIGNMENT AND BINDING EFFECT. This Agreement may not be assigned by VAR without the advance written authorization of BackWeb.

This Agreement contains the entire agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to its subject matter, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written agreements, negotiations, proposals and communications between the parties on the subject matter hereof. All modifications to this Agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. If any court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of this Agreement is invalid, such portion shall be deemed eliminated and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in effect in accordance with its terms as modified by such deletion.

This Agreement is governed by the laws applicable in the State of California, excluding its provisions on conflicts or choice of law. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sales of Goods will not apply to this Agreement. With the 4 <PAGE> exception of title to or ownership of the Intellectual Property Rights or the payment of money owed hereunder, any claim, dispute or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach thereof that cannot be amicably resolved between the parties shall be finally settled by arbitration in Santa Clara County, California if brought by VAR and in New York, New York if brought by BackWeb, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment upon the arbitral award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Nothing in this section shall prevent BackWeb from initiating any action in a court of competent jurisdiction in the Territory to obtain injunctive or other provisional relief for any breach of Sections 6 and 7 hereof or to bring an action for collection pursuant to Section 4, and the parties submit to the jurisdiction of such courts for this purpose. With respect to a suspected violation of BackWeb's Intellectual Property Rights or VAR's payment obligations, BackWeb may also take action in the courts of competent jurisdiction in any state or country in which the Software is licensed as a part of the VAR Product or VAR maintains an office. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed a waiver by either party of any available remedy. e. EXPORT. This Agreement is subject to all applicable export laws and regulations of the U.S. Government, the Territory and the Netherlands, and to all administrative acts of the U.S. Government or otherwise pursuant to such laws and regulations. VAR hereby certifies that VAR will not directly or indirectly, export, re-export or transship the Software or related information, media, or products in violation of applicable U.S. laws or regulations or other applicable laws or regulations. If at any time BackWeb reasonably determines the laws of any country are or become insufficient to protect BackWeb's rights in the Software, BackWeb reserves the right to restrict VAR's rights to distribute the Software in that country, provided that BackWeb grants VAR a minimum of a sixty (60) days' written notice for such restriction. f. GOVERNMENTAL APPROVAL. In the event that the approval of any government in the Territory is needed to for the parties to fulfill their obligations hereunder, including without limitation to remit payments abroad, comply with exchange regulations or otherwise, it shall be the sole responsibility of VAR to obtain such governmental approvals prior to the sale of the VAR Product in such country. BackWeb shall be under no obligation to ship Software units to VAR until VAR has provided BackWeb with satisfactory evidence of such governmental approval. g. NOTICES. Any notice, request, demand or other communication will be deemed to be properly given when (i) hand delivered, (ii) sent by courier with package tracking capability or air mail or first class registered mail, postage prepaid, or (iii) sent by facsimile, with a confirmation copy delivered per clauses (i) or (ii) above (notice effective upon receipt, except for facsimile transmissions, which shall be effective one day after receipt). h. This Agreement is the overall framework for the reselling relationship between PwC Entities and BackWeb; however, it is understood that specific implementation of this relationship internationally may require that local country addenda be added to this Agreement from time to time, executed by the PwC Entity in the country and an entity representing BackWeb; the intent is that such addendum will not modify the terms of this Agreement, except to the extent necessary to reflect international and local business conditions and legal requirements. i. "PWC ENTITY." PWC Entity shall mean (i) any entity that has executed or during the term of the Agreement executes a written participation agreement with PricewaterhouseCoopers International Ltd.; or (ii) any entity that was a participating entity in the Price Waterhouse World Firm or in Coopers & Lybrand International or had executed a membership agreement with Coopers & Lybrand International or was an associated firm of Coopers & Lybrand International and, in each case, is expected to become a participating entity in PricewaterhouseCoopers International Ltd.; (iii) a subsidiary or affiliate of an entity in items (i) or (ii) above; or (iv) a successor to any entity contained in (i), (ii) or (iii). j.
