6.4If either Party determines in good faith, based on a review of the Clinical Data or other Study-related Know-How or other information, that the Study may unreasonably affect patient safety, such Party shall promptly notify the other Party of such determination. The Party receiving such notice may propose modifications to the Study to address the safety issue identified by the other Party and, if the notifying Party agrees, shall act to immediately implement such modifications; provided, however, that if the notifying Party, in its sole discretion, believes that there is imminent danger to patients, such Party need not wait for the other Party to propose modifications and may instead terminate this
Agreement immediately upon written notice to such other Party. Furthermore, if the notifying Party, in its sole discretion, believes that any modifications proposed by the other Party will not resolve the patient safety issue, such Party may terminate this Agreement effective upon written notice to such other Party.
6.5Either Party may terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notice to the other Party in the event that any Regulatory Authority takes any action, or raises any objection, that prevents the terminating Party from supplying, in the case of Ideaya, the Ideaya Compound and, in the case of Pfizer, the Pfizer Compound, for purposes of the Study. Additionally, either Party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notice to the other Party in the event that it determines in its sole discretion to discontinue development of, in the case of Ideaya, the Ideaya Compound and, in the case of Pfizer, the Pfizer Compound, for medical, scientific, legal or other reasons.
6.6In the event that this Agreement is terminated, Ideaya shall, at Pfizer’s sole discretion, promptly either return or destroy all unused Pfizer Compound pursuant to Pfizer’s instructions. If Pfizer requests that Ideaya destroy the unused Pfizer Compound, Ideaya shall provide written certification of such destruction.
6.7Either Party shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notice to the other Party, if such other Party fails to perform any of its obligations under Section 13.3 or breaches any representation or warranty contained in Section 13.3. The non-terminating Party shall have no claim against the terminating Party for compensation for any loss of whatever nature by virtue of the termination of this Agreement in accordance with this Section 6.7.
6.8The provisions of this Section 6.8 and Sections 3.3, 3.7 (other than the first sentence and last four sentences thereof), 3.8, 3.11, 3.12, 6.6, 6.7 (other than the first sentence thereof), 6.9, 6.10, 6.11, 13.2, 13.3.5, 13.4, 14.2 (Indemnification), 14.3 (Limitation of Liability), and Articles 1 (Definitions), 7 (Costs of Study), 9 (Confidentiality), 10 (Intellectual Property), 11 (Reprints; Rights of Cross-Reference), 12 (Press Releases and Publications), 20 (No Additional Obligations), 21 (Dispute Resolution and Jurisdiction), 22 (Notices), 23 (Relationship of the Parties) and 25 (Construction) shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.

8.7.1After Manufacturer’s Release. After Manufacturer’s Release of Pfizer Compound and concurrently with Delivery of the Compound to Ideaya, Pfizer shall provide Ideaya with such certificates and documentation as are described in the Quality Agreement (“Disposition Package”). Ideaya shall, within the time defined in the Quality Agreement, perform (i) with respect to such Pfizer Compound, the acceptance procedures allocated to it under the Quality Agreement, and (ii) with respect to the Ideaya Compound, the testing and release procedures allocated to it under the Quality Agreement. Ideaya shall take all steps reasonably necessary to determine that the Ideaya Compound or Pfizer Compound, as applicable, is suitable for release before making such Ideaya Compound or Pfizer Compound, as applicable, available for human use, and Pfizer shall provide cooperation or assistance as reasonably requested by Ideaya in connection with such determination with respect to a Pfizer Compound. Ideaya shall be responsible for storage and maintenance of Pfizer Compound until it is tested and/or released, which storage and maintenance shall be in compliance with the Specifications for the applicable Pfizer Compound, the Quality Agreement and Applicable Law, and shall be responsible for any failure of the Pfizer Compound to meet the Specifications to the extent caused by shipping, storage or handling conditions after Delivery to Ideaya hereunder.
126.96.36.199In the event that either Party becomes aware that any Compound may have a Non-Conformance, despite testing and quality assurance activities (including any activities conducted by the Parties under Sections 8.7.1 (After Manufacturer’s Release)), such Party shall immediately notify the other Party in accordance with the procedures of the Quality Agreement. The Parties shall investigate any Non-Conformance in accordance with Section 8.9 (Investigations) and any discrepancy between them shall be resolved in accordance with Section 8.8 (Resolution of Discrepancies).
188.8.131.52In the event that any proposed or actual shipment of Pfizer Compound (or portion thereof) shall be agreed to have a Non-Conformance at the time of Delivery to Ideaya, then unless otherwise agreed to by the Parties, Pfizer shall replace such Pfizer Compound as is found to have a Non-Conformance (with respect to Pfizer Compound that has not yet been administered in the course of performing the Study). Unless otherwise agreed to by the Parties in writing, the sole and exclusive remedies of
Ideaya with respect to any Pfizer Compound that is found to have a Non-Conformance at the time of Delivery shall be (i) replacement of such Pfizer Compound as set forth in this Section 184.108.40.206, (ii) indemnification under Section 14.2 (to the extent applicable) and (iii) termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 6.3 (to the extent applicable, but subject to the applicable cure periods set forth therein); provided, for clarity, that Ideaya shall not be deemed to be waiving any rights under Section 8.15. In the event that Pfizer Compound is lost or damaged after Delivery, Pfizer may provide additional Pfizer Compound to Ideaya, if available for the Study. Such replaced Pfizer Compound shall be provided at no cost to Ideaya, so long as the amount replaced does not in the aggregate exceed [***] of the total quantity of Pfizer Compound to be provided by Pfizer pursuant to Appendix B (the “Replacement Threshold”). Ideaya shall pay Pfizer the Manufacturing Costs of any replaced Pfizer Compound which Pfizer agrees to supply in excess of the Replacement Threshold. For the avoidance of doubt, Pfizer shall have no obligation to provide replacement Pfizer Compound for any Pfizer Compound supplied hereunder other than such Pfizer Compound as has been agreed or determined to have a Non-Conformance at the time of Delivery to Ideaya. Pfizer shall be responsible for any costs incurred by Ideaya in connection with the return or destruction of any Pfizer Compound supplied hereunder that is found to have a Non-Conformance caused by Pfizer.
220.127.116.11Ideaya shall be responsible for, and Pfizer shall have no obligations or liability with respect to, any Ideaya Compound supplied hereunder that is found to have a Non-Conformance. Ideaya shall replace any Ideaya Compound as is found to have a Non-Conformance (with respect to Ideaya Compound that has not yet been administered in the course of performing the Study). Unless otherwise agreed to by the Parties in writing, the sole and exclusive remedies of Pfizer with respect to any Ideaya Compound that is found to have a Non-Conformance at the time of Delivery shall be (i) replacement of such Ideaya Compound as set forth in this Section 18.104.22.168, (ii) indemnification under Section 14.2 (to the extent applicable) and (iii) termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 6.3 (to the extent applicable, but subject to the applicable cure periods set forth therein); provided, for clarity, that Pfizer shall not be deemed to be waiving any rights under Section 8.15.
8.8Resolution of Discrepancies. Disagreements regarding any determination of Non-Conformance by Ideaya shall be resolved in accordance with the provisions of the Quality Agreement.
8.9Investigations. The process for investigations of any Non-Conformance shall be handled in accordance with the Quality Agreement.
8.10Shortage; Allocation. In the event that a Party’s Compound is in short supply as a result of a manufacturing disruption, manufacturing difficulties or other similar event such that a Party reasonably believes in good faith that it will not be able to fulfill its supply obligations hereunder with respect to such Compound, such Party will provide prompt written notice to the other Party thereof (including the shipments of Compound hereunder expected to be impacted and the quantity of its Compound that such Party reasonably determines it will be able to supply) and the Parties will promptly discuss such
situation (including how the quantity of Compound that such Party is able to supply hereunder will be allocated within the Study). In such event, the Party experiencing such shortage shall (i) use its commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the situation giving rise to such shortage and to take action to minimize the impact of the shortage on the Study, and (ii) allocate to the other Party an amount of Compound at least proportionate to the total amount of the Compound shipments hereunder expected to be impacted by the shortage divided by the total demand for the Compound for the impacted time period.
8.11Records. Each Party shall maintain complete and accurate records in all material respects pertaining to its Manufacture of its Compound or Compounds supplied hereunder.

8.16VAT. It is understood and agreed between the Parties that any payments made and any other consideration given under this Agreement are each exclusive of any value added or similar tax (“VAT”), which shall be added thereon as applicable and at the relevant rate. Subject to Section 8.17, where VAT is properly charged by the supplying Party and added to a payment made or other consideration provided (as applicable) under this Agreement, the Party making the payment or providing the other consideration (as applicable) will pay the amount of VAT properly chargeable only on receipt of a valid tax invoice from the supplying Party issued in accordance with the laws and regulations of the country in which the VAT is chargeable. Each Party agrees that it shall provide to the other Party any information and copies of any documents within its control to the extent reasonably requested by the other Party for the purposes of (i) determining the amount of VAT chargeable on any supply made under this Agreement, (ii) establishing the place of supply for VAT purposes, or (iii) complying with its VAT reporting or accounting obligations.
8.17Where one Party or its Affiliate (the “First Party”) is treated as making supply of goods or services in a particular jurisdiction (for VAT purposes) for non-cash consideration, and the other Party or its Affiliate (the “Second Party”) is treated as receiving such supply in the same jurisdiction, thus resulting in an amount of VAT being properly chargeable on such supply, the Second Party shall only be obliged to pay to the First Party the amount of VAT properly chargeable on such supply (and no other amount). The Second Party shall pay such VAT to the First Party on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from the First Party (issued in accordance with the laws and regulations of the jurisdiction in which the VAT is properly chargeable). The Parties agree to (i) use their reasonable endeavors to determine and agree the value of the supply that has been made and, as a result, the corresponding amount of VAT that is properly chargeable, and (ii) provide to each other any information or copies of documents in their control as are reasonably necessary to evidence that such supply will take, or has taken, place in the same jurisdiction (for VAT purposes).
9.1Subject to Section 13.3.7, Pfizer and Ideaya agree to hold in confidence any Confidential Information provided by the other Party, and neither Party shall use Confidential Information of the other Party except for the performance of the Study and for the Permitted Use and any other use expressly permitted by this Agreement. Neither Party shall, without the prior written permission of the other Party, disclose any Confidential Information of the other Party to any Third Party except to the extent disclosure (i) is required by Applicable Law; (ii) is pursuant to the terms of this Agreement; or (iii) is necessary for the conduct of the Study, and in each case ((i) through (iii)), provided that the disclosing Party shall provide reasonable advance notice to the other Party before making such disclosure, and assist the other Party in contesting such order or seeking confidential treatment, and in the case of (ii) and (iii) provided that such disclosure is under written obligations of confidentiality and non-use at least as stringent as the obligations contained herein. For the avoidance of doubt, Ideaya may, without Pfizer’s consent, disclose Confidential Information to clinical trial sites, clinical trial investigators and other Third Party vendors (including contract research organizations) performing the Study, the data safety monitoring and advisory board relating to the Study, and Regulatory Authorities working with Ideaya on the Study, in each case to the extent necessary for the performance of the Study and provided that such persons (other than governmental entities) are bound by an obligation of confidentiality and non-use at least as stringent as the obligations contained herein. Each Party may disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information only to those of its and its Affiliates’ employees, agents and contractors who need access thereto for the purposes permitted under this Agreement and who are bound by obligations of confidentiality and non-use at least as stringent as the obligations contained herein.
9.2Inventions that constitute Confidential Information and are jointly owned by the Parties shall constitute the Confidential Information of both Parties.
9.2.1Pfizer shall have the right to (i) use jointly owned Confidential Information and Clinical Data in connection with its independent development, commercialization or other exploitation of any proprietary Pfizer compound including the Pfizer Compound (alone or in combination with the Ideaya Compound and/or other pharmaceutical agents) and (ii) disclose jointly owned Confidential Information and Clinical Data in press releases and/or filings under the SEC Rules as reasonably determined to be necessary under SEC Rules by Pfizer, in each case without the consent of, or any obligation to account to, Ideaya; and (ii) disclose such Confidential Information to Third Parties consistent with Articles 3.8, 10, 11 and 12.
9.2.2Ideaya shall have the right to (i) use jointly owned Confidential Information and Clinical Data in connection with its independent development, commercialization or other exploitation of any proprietary Ideaya compound including the Ideaya Compound (alone or in combination with the Pfizer Compound and/or other pharmaceutical agents), (ii) disclose jointly owned Confidential Information and Clinical Data in press releases and/or filings under the SEC Rules as reasonably determined to be necessary under SEC Rules by Ideaya, and (iii) disclose jointly owned Confidential Information and Clinical Data to bona fide actual or prospective non-pharmaceutical company underwriters, investors, lenders or other financing sources, and who in each case have a specific need to know such Confidential Information and who are bound by a like obligation of confidentiality and restrictions on use. in each case without the consent of Pfizer; and (ii) disclose such Confidential Information to Third Parties consistent with Articles 3.8, 10, 11 and 12.
9.3Inventions that constitute Confidential Information and are solely owned by one Party shall constitute the Confidential Information of that Party. Subject to Section 3.8, Ideaya may use and disclose to Third Parties any Ideaya solely owned Confidential Information for any purpose without obligation or accounting to Pfizer. Similarly, subject to Section 3.8, Pfizer may use and disclose to Third Parties any Pfizer solely owned Confidential Information for any purpose without obligation or accounting to Ideaya.
9.4All Confidential Information containing personal identifiable data shall be handled in accordance with all data protection and privacy laws, rules and regulations applicable to such Party.
10.1Joint Ownership and Prosecution.
10.1.1Subject to Sections 10.2 and 10.3, all rights to all Inventions relating to or covering the combined use of the Pfizer Compound and the Ideaya Compound (each a “Jointly Owned Invention”) shall belong jointly to Pfizer and Ideaya. For those countries where a specific license is required for a joint owner of a Jointly Owned Invention to practice such Jointly Owned Invention in such countries, (i) Ideaya hereby grants to Pfizer a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up license, transferable and sublicensable, under Ideaya’s right, title and interest in and to all
Jointly Owned Inventions to use such Inventions for the Permitted Use and any other use expressly permitted by this Agreement, and (ii) Pfizer hereby grants to Ideaya a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up license, transferable and sublicensable, under Pfizer’s right, title and interest in and to all Jointly Owned Inventions to use such Inventions for the Permitted Use and any other use expressly permitted by this Agreement. For clarity, the terms of this Agreement do not provide Pfizer or Ideaya with any rights, title or interest or any license to the other Party’s background intellectual property except as necessary to conduct the Study and as expressly set forth in Section 10.4. Each Party shall have the right to freely exploit each Jointly Owned Invention, both within and outside the scope of the Study, without accounting to or any other obligation to the other Party, and each Party may grant licenses (with a right to sublicense) to Third Parties under such Party’s interest in each Jointly Owned Invention.
10.1.2Promptly following the Effective Date, patent representatives of each of the Parties shall meet (in person or by telephone) to discuss the patenting strategy for any Jointly Owned Inventions which may arise. In particular, the Parties shall discuss which Party will file a patent application (including any provisional, substitution, divisional, continuation, continuation in part, reissue, renewal, reexamination, extension, supplementary protection certificate and the like) in respect of any Jointly Owned Invention (each, a “Joint Patent Application”) and whether the Parties wish to appoint Joint Patent Counsel. In any event, the Parties shall consult and reasonably cooperate with one another in the preparation, filing, prosecution (including prosecution strategy) and maintenance of such patent application and shall equally share the expenses associated with the Joint Patent Applications. In the event that one Party (the “Filing Party”) wishes to file a patent application for a Jointly Owned Invention and the other Party (the “Non-filing Party”) does not want to file any patent application for such Jointly Owned Invention or does not want to file in a particular country, the Non-filing Party shall execute such documents and perform such acts at the Filing Party’s expense as may be reasonably necessary to effect an assignment of such Jointly Owned Invention to the Filing Party (in such country or all countries, as applicable) in a timely manner to allow the Filing Party to prosecute such patent application. Likewise, if a Party (the “Opting-out Party”) wishes to discontinue the prosecution and maintenance of a Joint Patent Application, the other Party, at its sole option (the “Continuing Party”), may continue such prosecution and maintenance. In such event, the Opting-out Party shall execute such documents and perform such acts at the Continuing Party’s expense as may be reasonably necessary to effect an assignment of such Joint Patent Application to the Continuing Party (in such country or all countries, as applicable) in a timely manner to allow the Continuing Party to prosecute and maintain such patent application. Any Joint Patent Application or Jointly Owned Invention so assigned shall thereafter be owned solely by the Continuing Party or Filing Party (as applicable), and the Opting-out Party or Non-filing Party (as applicable) shall have no right to practice under such Joint Patent Application or any patent claiming such Jointly Owned Invention in the applicable country or countries and, for the avoidance of doubt, any such patent, when issued, shall not be a Joint Patent. The Filing Party or Continuing Party (as applicable) hereby grants to the Opting-out Party or Non-Filing Party (as applicable) a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free fully paid-up license under such solely owned patent applications and patents to practice any Invention claimed therein solely for
the purposes of developing and commercializing its respective Compound for use in the Combination, which license shall not be transferable or sublicensable to any Third Party except to (A) Affiliates of the Opting-out Party or Non-Filing Party (as applicable) and (B) Third Parties engaged in developing, manufacturing or marketing that Party’s Compound for or on behalf of that Party or its Affiliates.
10.1.3Except as expressly provided in Section 3.7, 9.1, 10.1.2, 10.2 or 10.3 and in furtherance and not in limitation of Section 9.1, each Party agrees to make no patent application based on the other Party’s Confidential Information, and to give no assistance to any Third Party for such application, without the other Party’s prior written authorization.
10.1.4Pfizer shall have the first right to initiate legal action to enforce all Joint Patents against infringement, and to protect all Jointly Owned Inventions from misappropriation, by any Third Party where such infringement or misappropriation results from the development or sale of a MEK Inhibitor or to defend any declaratory judgment action relating thereto, at its sole expense. In the event that Pfizer fails to initiate or defend such action within [***] days after being first notified of such infringement or misappropriation, Ideaya shall have the right to do so at its sole expense. Similarly, Ideaya shall have the first right to initiate legal action to enforce all Joint Patents against infringement and to protect all Jointly Owned Inventions from misappropriation, by any Third Party where such infringement or misappropriation results from the development or sale of a PKC Inhibitor or to defend any declaratory judgment action relating thereto, at its sole expense. In the event that Ideaya fails to initiate or defend such action within [***] days after being first notified of such infringement, Pfizer shall have the right to do so at its sole expense. In the event that legal action to enforce Joint Patents will involve infringement or misappropriation resulting from the development or sale of a molecule or molecules that is/are or include(s) both a MEK Inhibitor and a PKC Inhibitor, the Parties shall work together to coordinate such action and shall, unless one Party elects not to pursue such legal action, share the costs and expenses of such litigation equally. For clarity, if the alleged infringer is selling or intending to sell only one of either a MEK Inhibitor or a PKC Inhibitor, then the foregoing obligation to share the costs and expenses of such litigation shall not apply.
10.1.5If one Party brings any prosecution or enforcement action or proceeding against a Third Party with respect to any Joint Patent, the second Party agrees to be joined as a party plaintiff where necessary and to give the first Party reasonable assistance and authority to file and prosecute the suit. The costs and expenses of the Party bringing suit under this Section 10.1.5 shall be borne by such Party, and any damages or other monetary awards recovered shall be shared as follows: (i) the amount of such recovery actually received by the Party controlling such action shall be first applied to the out-of-pocket costs of each Party in connection with such action; and then (ii) any remaining proceeds shall be divided evenly between Pfizer and Ideaya. A settlement or consent judgment or other voluntary final disposition of a suit under this Section 10.1.5 may not be entered into without the consent of the Party not bringing the suit.
10.2Inventions Owned by Pfizer. Notwithstanding Section 10.1, the Parties agree that all rights to Inventions relating solely to the Pfizer Compound or a MEK Inhibitor are the exclusive property of Pfizer. Pfizer shall be entitled to file in its own name relevant patent applications and to own resultant patent rights for any such Invention. For the avoidance of doubt, any Invention generically encompassing the Pfizer Compound (and not any Ideaya proprietary compound including the Ideaya Compound) within its scope, even where the Pfizer Compound is not disclosed per se, is the exclusive property of Pfizer.
10.3Inventions Owned by Ideaya. Notwithstanding Section 10.1, the Parties agree that all rights to Inventions relating solely to the Ideaya Compound or a PKC Inhibitor are the exclusive property of Ideaya. Ideaya shall be entitled to file in its own name relevant patent applications and to own resultant patent rights for any such Invention. For the avoidance of doubt, any Invention generically encompassing the Ideaya Compound (and not any Pfizer proprietary compound including the Pfizer Compound) within its scope, even where the Ideaya Compound is not disclosed per se, is the exclusive property of Ideaya.
10.4Mutual Freedom to Operate for Combination Inventions.
10.4.1Pfizer hereby grants to Ideaya (i) during the term of this Agreement and (ii) perpetually contingent upon and effective as of Regulatory Approval for the commercial sale of the Combination, an irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up license, transferable and sublicensable, to any patent claims directed to the Combination in any patent application or patent owned or controlled by Pfizer which (a) has a priority claim that is earlier than the initiation of the Study (i.e., first dosing of the first patient in the Study) and (b) claims the Combination, solely in order to practice such Combination for all purposes.
10.4.2Ideaya hereby grants to Pfizer (i) during the term of this Agreement and (ii) perpetually contingent upon and effective as of Regulatory Approval for the commercial sale of the Combination, an irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up license, transferable and sublicensable, to any patent claims directed to the Combination in any patent application or patent owned or controlled by Ideaya which (a) has a priority claim that is earlier than the initiation of the Study (i.e., first dosing of the first patient in the Study) and (b) claims the Combination, solely in order to practice such Combination for all purposes.
10.4.3For clarity, the terms of this Section 10.4 do not provide Ideaya or Pfizer with any rights, title or interest or any license to the other Party’s background intellectual property which does not claim the Combination (i.e., intellectual property owned or licensed by either Party which does not constitute an Invention and does not claim the Combination) except as necessary to conduct the Study.
Reprints; Rights of Cross-Reference.
Consistent with applicable copyright and other laws, each Party may use, refer to, and disseminate reprints of scientific, medical and other published articles and materials from journals, conferences and/or symposia relating to the Study which disclose the name of a Party, provided such use does not constitute an endorsement of any commercial product or service by the other Party.
Press Releases and Publications.
12.1Subject to Sections 9.2.1 and 9.2.2, the Parties will mutually agree on the content and timing of any press release with respect to this Agreement or the Study.
12.2To the extent required by Applicable Law or in accordance with Ideaya’s policies, Ideaya will register the Study with the Clinical Trials Registry located at www.clinicaltrials.gov. Ideaya is committed to timely publication of the results following Study Completion, after taking appropriate action to secure intellectual property rights (if any) arising from the Study. The publication of the results of the Study will be in accordance with the Protocol. Pfizer agrees not to publish any results of the Study involving the Ideaya Compound prior to the timely publication of such Study results by Ideaya.
12.3Each Party shall use reasonable efforts to publish or present scientific papers dealing with the Study in accordance with accepted scientific practice.

If in the performance of this Agreement, one of the Parties is prevented, hindered or delayed by reason of any cause beyond such Party’s reasonable control (e.g., war, riots, fire, strike, governmental laws), such Party shall be excused from performance to the extent that it is necessarily prevented, hindered or delayed (“Force Majeure”). The non-performing Party will notify the other Party of such Force Majeure within ten (10) days after such occurrence by giving written notice to the other Party stating the nature of the event, its anticipated duration, and any action being taken to avoid or minimize its effect.
