We understand that your order is a domestic order for end-use in the United States. Should you decide to export the products ordered from us, you will be the exporter of record and responsible for export compliance. You understand that exports and re-exports of CTC products and any related software, technical data, service, or technical assistance (individually, an “Item” and, collectively, the “Items”) are subject to U.S., foreign and local export control, economic sanctions, and customs laws, regulations, rules, and orders (individually, a “Trade Control Law” and, collectively, “Trade Control Laws”). You agree to comply and will ensure that your subsidiaries (if applicable) comply, with all applicable Trade Control Laws, and to obtain all required U.S., foreign and local authorizations, permits, or licenses at your expense. You will give notice of the need to comply with the Trade Control Laws to any person or entity which you have reason to believe is obtaining an Item from you with the intention of exportation.
You will not, directly or indirectly through others, use, export, re-export, import, or otherwise transfer or provide any Item, or any product incorporating the Item, in contravention of any Trade Control Law or any end-user certiﬁcate you provide to CTC, including (i) into or from (or to or from a national or resident of) any destination embargoed or sanctioned by the U.S., including Cuba, Crimea, Iran, North Korea, Syria and Sudan, where that act would be in breach of the applicable embargo or sanction, (ii) to anyone listed on the Specially Designated Nationals List, the Entity List, or on any other prohibited persons list published by the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Treasury, or State (a "Restricted Party"), (iii) for a prohibited end-use (such as research on or development or fabrication of chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons, unmanned air vehicles or missiles; or nuclear explosive or fuel cycle activities or unsafeguarded nuclear activity) without prior authorization from the applicable U.S. export control agency, or (iv) to any country as to which the U.S. government or any agency thereof requires an export license or other governmental approval at the time of export or re-export without ﬁrst obtaining such license or approval.

You certify that you are not a Restricted Party and that you (if an entity) are not owned, directly or indirectly, 50% or more by one or more Restricted Parties, or located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any embargoed country.
Requests by you for CTC to provide assistance or services in connection with the integration of Items into any military end-use item must be approved in advance by CTC in writing for export control purposes and CTC's ability to provide any such assistance to you is conditioned upon obtaining any U.S. government export authorization that may be required. CTC is not obligated to provide such assistance or services.
Any Item export classiﬁcation made by CTC shall be for CTC's internal use only and shall not be construed as a representation or warranty regarding the proper export classiﬁcation for such Item or whether an export authorization is required for the exportation of such Item.
You agree to provide to CTC in a timely manner such information and assistance, including end-user certiﬁcates, as may be requested by CTC in connection with securing any required licenses and authorizations. Any delivery schedules delineated in CTC's offer and/or your order are calculated from the date of receipt of any requested export license(s).In addition to any other remedy it may have, CTC may suspend and/or cancel the export, delivery, installation, and/or any maintenance or repair service of any Item and otherwise be excused from performing any obligations it may have under this contract, if (i) CTC has not received all export-related documentation requested by CTC, including end-user certiﬁcates, (ii) CTC has not received the governmental approvals that CTC deems to be required, (iii) CTC believes that such activity may violate any Trade Control Laws or CTC's own compliance policies, or (iv) you violate any of your obligations and commitments under these Terms or any Trade Control Law. You must notify CTC before providing any technical data to CTC that is controlled under any Trade Control Law.
CTC will not be liable to you for any loss or expense if you fail to comply with any Trade Control Law or with the provisions set forth in these Terms. You will indemnify, defend and hold CTC, its shareholders, ofﬁcers, directors, employees, representatives, agents, and Afﬁliates harmless from and against all claims, suits, actions, proceedings, debts, losses or liabilities (including attorney fees and expenses, whether incurred as the result of a third-party claim or a claim to enforce this provision), and damages arising out of your non-compliance with this Section 7 of these Terms, including your violation or alleged violation of any Trade Control Law.
