We will indemnify you against all claims, causes of action, judgments, damages, fines or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from a third-party claim that your use of the Services as permitted by this Agreement infringes upon such third party’s intellectual property rights. You will indemnify us against all claims, causes of actions, judgments, damages, fines or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from a third-party claim relating to your use of the Services in violation of this Agreement and/or applicable law. These indemnification obligations are contingent on a Party giving written notice to the other Party promptly upon becoming aware of any claim for which it seeks indemnification (an “Indemnity Claim”). The non-indemnifying party will provide the indemnifying party with reasonable, non-monetary assistance in the defense of an Indemnity Claim. The indemnifying party may assume the defense of an Indemnity Claim with counsel of its choice, so long as such counsel is competent, established and reputable. No indemnity obligation will exist for an Indemnity Claim that arises from a non-indemnifying party’s gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach of this Agreement.
- OWNERSHIP; PROPRIETARY AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
6.1 – You acknowledge and agree that, as between you and us, all right, title and interest in and to the Services, all intellectual property rights therein and any and all derivations therefrom and improvements and enhancements thereto (all of the foregoing, collectively, “Our Property”) are and at all times our sole and exclusive property.

You hereby assign to us all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to such Services Feedback, any and all of which we may use for our own business purposes in our sole and absolute discretion, without any payment or accounting to you. Such Services Feedback is deemed part of our Confidential Information hereunder. In addition, all content, data and/or information submitted or otherwise communicated or made available to us by or on behalf of you in connection with the Services will not constitute your Confidential Information.

- CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
“Confidential Information” means information that one Party (“Discloser”) discloses to the other Party (“Recipient”) on or after the Effective Date in connection with this Agreement; provided, that such information is marked as confidential or would normally be considered as confidential given the nature of such information or circumstances of disclosure. It does not include information that Recipient already knew, becomes publicly available through no fault of Recipient, was independently developed by Recipient or was lawfully given to Recipient by a third party. Recipient will not disclose any of Discloser’s Confidential Information, except to its affiliates and its and their respective employees, agents or professional advisors (to the extent the foregoing receive Discloser’s Confidential Information, “Representatives”) who need to know it in order to perform under this Agreement and have written confidentiality obligations in place at least as protective as those hereunder that cover Discloser’s Confidential Information. Recipient will (i) ensure that its Representatives do not make any unauthorized use of Discloser’s Confidential Information and (ii) be liable for any actions or omissions of its Representatives which, if taken by Recipient, would constitute a breach by Recipient of this Agreement. Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information if required by law or legal process after giving reasonable notice to Discloser (if such notice is permitted by law). Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement or written request by Discloser, Recipient will destroy all written material in any form whatsoever to the extent they contain Discloser’s Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, Recipient may retain physical and electronic copies of any materials containing Discloser’s Confidential Information if necessary to comply with applicable laws, regulations and bona fide internal document retention policies (“Legal Purposes”); provided, that (a) the use of any such Confidential Information will be limited to Legal Purposes and Recipient will not, for the avoidance of doubt, have any right to make any commercial use of such Confidential Information and (b) such Confidential Information is only accessed by legal, compliance and information technology personnel.
- THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS
In the event that our rights, titles, licenses, permissions or approvals from a Third Party Supplier pertaining to the Services are cancelled, terminated, rescinded or not renewed, we may, upon written notice to you, suspend or terminate your rights to use the affected portions of the Services within the timeframe required by such Third Party Supplier. Such suspension or termination will not constitute a breach by us of any of our obligations hereunder but we will refund to you a pro rata portion of any prepaid Fees for the affected Services for the period that such Services are not available or usable and will negotiate with you in good faith to determine whether an adjustment in future payments owed by you to us to reflect such suspension or termination is warranted.
Unless otherwise stated on the applicable IO, you will pay all Fees within thirty (30) days of the date of our invoice to you for the applicable Services. We may charge interest at the rate of 1.5% per month on overdue Fees, accrued from the due date until the date payment is received. In addition, we may also suspend delivery of the Services (or any portion thereof) for as long as any Fees remain overdue. You will pay all sales and related taxes based on the Fees, exclusive of taxes based on our income. Except as otherwise expressly stated in this Agreement, the Fees are non-refundable.

All such audits pursuant to the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii) shall be conducted at our expense, unless such audit reveals an underpayment by you of more than three (3)% and/or a material variance in the use of the Services from the use contemplated by this Agreement, in which case you will be liable to us for all reasonable audit expenses we incurred and we will have the right to conduct another audit and review pursuant to this Section 10 during the same twelve- (12) month period. You will also be liable for any unauthorized use or distribution of the Services (or any portion thereof) discovered during such audit. You will promptly pay to us the amount of all underpayments of Fees identified in any audit, together with interest thereon in accordance with Section 9.
- MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS AND REORGANIZATIONS
If you or any Licensed Affiliate that benefits from this Agreement (together, the “Licensees”) merge with or acquire any interest or shares of a third party or any third party merges with or acquires such an interest in any Licensee (in each case, a “Transfer”), you will promptly notify us in writing of such Transfer and (i) this Agreement will remain in full force and effect following the Transfer; (ii) we may offer you revised Fees for the Services based on, amongst other things, the increased benefit you receive from the Services due to the enlarged size and nature of your business following the Transfer (“Extension Fee”); and (iii) unless and until you pay the Extension Fee, no employee, contractor or other personnel of the relevant third party will access, use or benefit in any way from the Services or will be deemed to be an Authorized User.

12.1.1 – You will use the Test Services in accordance with this TOS and furthermore solely for the purpose of evaluating the same, internally within your own organization and not for redistribution to or use by any third party.

Upon our request, and in any event after the expiration or termination of the test, you will cease all use of the Test Services, and purge the Test Services and any copies thereof from your computer system. You will return the Test Services (if delivered in a fixed medium), or supply a certificate of destruction thereof, within ten (10) days of our request. For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, you may not use the results of any test based on the Test Services for redistribution to any third party, or for any actual use in any productive purpose.
12.2 – We will provide Test Services under cover of a letter referencing this Section 12.

Neither Party may assign this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party, except that we may, without your consent, assign this Agreement (i) to our affiliates; (ii) in connection with a merger or consolidation involving us or a sale of all or substantially all of our assets; or (iii) in connection with a divestiture of any portion of our business or any applicable division to which this Agreement relates. The waiver by either Party of a breach or violation of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent or other breach or violation. Any performance delay caused by conditions beyond the reasonable control of either Party will not constitute a breach hereof so long as the delaying Party takes reasonable measures to notify the affected Party in writing of the delay and uses commercially reasonable efforts to perform notwithstanding such conditions. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or representations, written or oral, concerning the subject matter of this Agreement. Amendments of or waivers relating to this Agreement must be in writing signed by the Parties; provided, that we may, in our sole discretion, change this TOS at any time, and you will be bound to such changes, subject only to the following requirements: (a) in the event of any material change to this TOS, we will provide you notice of such change, which notice obligation may be fulfilled by us posting a notice on our website for at least thirty (30) days, stating that this TOS has been updated (or words to a similar effect); and (b) if such change has a materially adverse effect on your rights and obligations under this Agreement, taken as a whole, you may, within thirty (30) days of the date such change became effective (as evidenced by the “Last updated” date at the end of this TOS), terminate the affected portion of this Agreement upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to us, in which case, you will receive a refund of a pro rata portion of the Fees due to such termination (which pro rata refund is our sole liability due to such change). Solely as an accommodation to your invoicing practices and procedures, we may, from time to time, accept or sign purchase orders and other similar documents provided by you to effectuate payment of Fees owed to us. You agree that no terms contained therein will be binding on us and we expressly reject all such terms. The provisions of Sections 1, 3.2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 13 will survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement. We may use your name and/or your logo (in a form you previously approved), in each case, to identify you as our client or customer for our marketing and promotional purposes, including (a) in any list of clients and customers on our website(s); (b) at any exhibition, trade show or other event held by us; (c) in renewal forms to existing clients and customers; or (d) in presentations and marketing materials to potential or existing clients, customers or business partners.
