For clarity, Aggregated Anonymous Data shall not include any Customer Data that can be linked specifically to Customer in any way.

    2. Upon payment of any applicable fees set forth in each Order Form or SOW (which shall be paid in accordance with Section 9), Labelbox agrees to use reasonable commercial endeavours to provide the Professional Services described therein for the term specified therein (if any).

No title to or ownership of Labelbox Workforce Services IP (including any derivative works) or any associated intellectual property or proprietary rights are transferred to Customer by this Agreement, and no licenses to any Labelbox Workforce Services IP are granted to Customer.

    1. Except for Customer's obligation to pay the Fees, no failure, delay or omission by a Party in the performance of any obligation under this Agreement shall be deemed a breach of this Agreement or create any liability if such failure or omission arises from any cause or causes beyond the reasonable control of such Party including, without limitation, fire; flood; severe weather; earthquake; vandalism; accidents; sabotage; power failure; denial of service attacks or similar attacks; pandemic, epidemic, outbreak of disease or other global or national public health emergency (and the effects of any associated lockdown or social distancing measures); Internet failure; acts of God and the public enemy; acts of war; acts of terrorism; riots; civil or public disturbances; strikes lock-outs or labour disruptions; any laws, orders, rules, regulations, acts or restraints of any government or governmental body or authority, civil or military, including the orders and judgments of courts (collectively, "Force Majeure Event"); provided that the Party seeking to delay its performance gives the other written notice of any such Force Majeure Event as soon as practicable after the discovery, and further provided that such Party uses its good faith endeavours to overcome the Force Majeure Event (and, in any event, such Party will begin or resume performance as soon as practicable after the Force Majeure Event has abated).
