Payment. Sonatype will submit an invoice for all Product Subscriptions and Training Services purchased by Company pursuant to an Ordering Document, and Company shall pay all amounts set forth in each invoice no later than thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice.
Overdue Charges; Suspension of Service. If any fees are not received from Company when due, then at Sonatype’s discretion, such unpaid fees may accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.

If such Audit reveals that Company has underpaid Sonatype with respect to any amounts due and payable during the period to which the Audit relates, Company shall promptly pay such amounts as are necessary to rectify such underpayment, together with interest in accordance with Section 5(c). Such inspection and audit rights shall extend throughout the term of this Agreement and for a period of one year thereafter.
Reservation of Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, Sonatype, for itself and on behalf of its licensors, reserves all rights in the Products and Training Materials that are not expressly granted to Company in this Agreement, and Company acknowledges and agrees that Sonatype owns all rights, title and interest in and to the Products and Training Materials. All rights, title and interest in and to any and all improvements, modifications, derivative works and innovations of, to and/or involving the Products and Training Materials will be retained in full and owned by Sonatype, even if such improvements, modifications, derivative works or innovations result from suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations or other feedback provided to Sonatype by or on behalf of Company. Company agrees not to challenge, directly or indirectly, Sonatype’s right, title, and interest in and to the Products or Training Materials, and further agrees that it will not directly or indirectly, register, apply for registration, or attempt to acquire any legal protection for any of the Products and Training Materials.

Protection of Confidential Information.

Compelled Disclosure The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior written notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent not legally prohibited) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party's cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure.
