Evaluation Agreement

1. Contract Formation.

These Terms and Conditions set out the terms under which TomTom International BV ("TomTom") is prepared to grant an evaluation license for certain TomTom Traffic Stats products (the "Licensed Products").

Any individual or entity which requires use of the Licensed Products (hereafter a "Licensee") shall submit an order form via the TomTom website available at www.tomtom.com/mobility (the "Website") requesting an evaluation license of the Licensed Products and specifying the Licensed Products which Licensee requires to evaluate (an "Order").

Any Order sent by Licensee to TomTom will be accepted entirely at TomTom's discretion. Any acceptance by TomTom will take place by means of TomTom confirming an Order by an "Order Confirmation" email (hereinafter an "Order Confirmation"). No Order shall be deemed to be accepted and no binding agreement shall be formed unless and until Licensee receives an Order Confirmation.

For the avoidance of doubt, any e-mail which Licensee receives that acknowledges receipt of Licensee's completed Order and indicates that it shall be subject to TomTom's review and approval shall not be deemed to be an Order Confirmation.

All prices and product offerings specified on the Website in connection with the Licensed Products are indicative only and shall be deemed to be an "invitation to treat". Under no circumstances shall such prices or product offerings be deemed to be an offer which is capable of acceptance. For these purposes an offer shall only be made upon Licensee's submission of an Order and such offer shall only be accepted once Licensee receives an Order Confirmation as set out above.

These Terms and Conditions will override any different or additional terms or conditions contained or referred to in an Order or other document or correspondence from Licensee to TomTom in connection with the Licensed Products. No addition, alteration or substitution of these Terms and Conditions will bind TomTom or form part of any Order unless expressly accepted in writing by a person authorized to represent TomTom. TomTom explicitly rejects the applicability of Licensee's terms and conditions.

2. Access Codes.

Upon TomTom's Acceptance of Licensee's Order in accordance with Section 1 above, TomTom shall provide to Licensee an access code (the "Access Code") which shall enable Licensee to access the Licensed Products directly from the Portal (as defined under article 3 below).

Licensee shall be responsible for keeping the Access Code confidential and shall not, except as permitted under these terms and conditions, permit any third party to have access to or use of the Access Code.

In the event Licensee loses the Access Code, TomTom shall be under no obligation to provide a new Access Code and Licensee shall not be entitled to receive any form of refund, rebate, discount or compensation.

TomTom shall be entitled to revoke the Access Code at any time and for any reason without notice. Without prejudice to the foregoing sentence, TomTom shall be entitled to revoke the Access Code at any time in the event Licensee (i) loses the Access Code, or (ii) the Portal is accessed by any third party other then Licensee using the Access Code; or (iii) TomTom, acting reasonably, believes Licensee is in breach of the terms of this Agreement.

Licensee acknowledges that the Access Code and the Licensed Products are programmed to allow Licensee access to the Licensed Products solely in connection with the scope, duration, number of searches or such other criteria as Licensee may have purchased or been granted by TomTom and that the Access Codes and Licensed Evaluation Agreement

Products may be programmed with a time bomb or other form of disabling code which is designed to limit Licensee's use of the Licensed Products to that which is permitted by TomTom. Licensee hereby agrees and acknowledges that such time bomb and other disabling codes may install themselves on Licensee's systems and that Licensee shall have no claim whatsoever against TomTom in respect of such time bomb and other disabling codes.

3. Grant of Limited License.

Subject to TomTom's acceptance of an Order as set out above, TomTom hereby grants to Licensee a non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable License of a discrete area of the territory selected (such discrete area to be determined by TomTom in its sole discretion) to access and use the Licensed Products (which shall be accessed via the TomTom access portal which is available at www.trafficstats.tomtom.com (the "Portal")) to generate Search Results for the limited purpose of internal evaluation only. Any other use of the Licensed Products by Licensee is not permitted. "Search Results" for the purpose of this Agreement shall mean travel time reports which detail, without limitation, speeds and travel times including their statistics per road segment on the specified routes which is produced using the Licensed Products.

Licensee shall not be permitted to supply any Search Results to any third party. Where Licensee is a government body or department, a quango, a regulatory body, a quasiadministrative body, a public entity or a statutory body (together a "Government Entity"), transfer by Licensee of the Search Results (whether in an aggregated form, compiled form, edited form or otherwise) to any other Government Entity shall be deemed to be a transfer to a third party and shall be prohibited unless explicitly authorised in writing by TomTom.

Licensee acknowledges that information and Search Results generated by the Licensed Products shall be made available to Licensee by TomTom in aggregated form only. For the avoidance of doubt, Licensee shall not be permitted to access or use the underlying raw data contained in TomTom Traffic Stats database (the "Database") which the Licensed Products use in order to derive the Search Results and Licensee shall make no attempt to access such raw data.

Licensee acknowledges that it is prohibited from making any additions, modifications, adaptations, or other alterations of or to the Licensed Products or Search Results, adding any data to or in combination with the Search Results, or reverse engineering, decompiling, or making derivative works thereof. Licensee is not entitled to compile a database by using, or reutilizing the Licensed Products or Search Results in combination with any other database of Licensee or any third party whether or not to check, compare or benchmark the Licensed Products or Search Results against such other database. Licensee is prohibited from distributing the Licensed Products or Search Results in any fashion other than as permitted by this Agreement or as required by law. In no event shall Licensee use the Licensed Products or Search Results for commercial or revenue generating purposes or for the performance of a public function. All rights not specifically granted herein are reserved.

In the event the Search Results comprise any map data ("Map Data") then the following shall also apply: The Map Data may not be used for in-flight navigation. If the Map Data generates either hard copy or electronic maps, the following notice must appear on each map image: "© 2006-2011 TomTom". Additional Provisions with respect to the TomTom Global Content BV® data for China: Licensee agrees that any Search Results which contain Map Data relating to China may be subject to additional terms and conditions which shall be provided to Licensee when available to TomTom. Chinese Map Data may not be exported from China. Additional Provisions with respect to the TomTom Global Content BV® data for India: Licensee agrees that any Search Results which contain Map Data of India may be subject to additional terms and conditions which shall be provided to Licensee when available to TomTom. Indian Map Data may not be exported from India. Additional Provisions with respect to the TomTom Global Content BV® data for Korea: Licensee agrees that any Search Results which contain Map Data of Korea may be subject to additional terms and conditions which shall be provided to Licensee when available to TomTom. Korean Map Data may not be exported from Korea. Korean Map Data cannot be shipped to Licensee in an open format (such as ESRI shapefile).

4. Use of Search Results for Law enforcement Purposes

NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, LICENSEE SHALL NOT (AND SHALL PROCURE THE SAME IN RESPECT OF ANY THIRD PARTY WHICH TOMTOM HAS PERMITTED LICENSEE TO SUPPLY THE SEARCH RESULTS TO), USE THE SEARCH RESULTS (WHETHER IN AN AGGREGATED FORM, COMPILED FORM, EDITED FORM OR OTHERWISE) TO ASCERTAIN AREAS OF A SELECTED ROAD NETWORK IN WHICH MOTORISTS EXCEED THE APPLICABLE SPEED LIMIT FOR THE PURPOSES OF SELECTING POTENTIAL LOCATIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF SPEED CAMERAS (OR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OTHER SUCH PERMANENT OR TEMPORARY SPEED TRACKING DEVICES) USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF ISSUING SPEEDING FINES OR OTHER SUCH CIVIL OR CRIMINAL PENALTIES TO MOTORISTS.
