Customer shall be responsible for all acts and omissions of Authorized Users, including any act or omission by an Authorized User which constitutes a breach of this Agreement.

Each Party agrees: (i) that all items of Confidential Information are proprietary to the disclosing Party and will remain its sole property; (ii) to use Confidential Information only for the purposes for which it was disclosed; (iii) not to reproduce Confidential Information except as reasonably necessary for its authorized use; (iv) to hold in confidence and protect such Confidential Information from dissemination as if it were its own, using at least reasonable care; and (v) to return or destroy all Confidential Information that is in its possession upon termination or expiration of this Agreement (except as provided in Section 10.4).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) each Party may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with Applicable Laws; and (ii) the existence of this Agreement is not confidential, but the pricing and other terms are confidential. Nothing in this Section 6 shall be construed as a grant or assignment of any right or license in the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. The receiving Party acknowledges that the disclosing Party has the right to take all reasonable steps to protect the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, including by seeking injunctive relief and/or any other remedies that may be available at law or in equity, all of which remedies shall be cumulative and in addition to any rights and remedies available. Any requirements for a bond in connection with any such injunctive or other equitable relief are hereby waived by both Parties.

7.   WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER.

7.1.   Mutual Representations. Each Party represents to the other (i) that the execution and performance of its obligations under this Agreement will not conflict with or violate any provision of Applicable Law; (ii) that this Agreement, when executed and delivered, will constitute a valid and binding obligation of such Party and will be enforceable against such Party in accordance with its terms.  

7.2.   Limited Service Warranty.  Provider warrants that the Service, under normal use as permitted by this Agreement, will perform substantially in accordance with generally accepted industry standards. Customer will notify Provider of any breach of the foregoing warranty within thirty (30) days of the date on which the condition giving rise to the claim first appeared, and Customer's exclusive remedy will be the re-performance of the deficient portion of the Service as warranted. If Provider cannot re-perform the Service as warranted, Customer may terminate its subscription under Section 10.2 and recover any pre-paid fees for the unused portion of the terminated Subscription Term.  Such refund will be Provider’s entire liability for a breach of warranty under this Section 7.2. 

7.3.   DISCLAIMERS. 

Customer represents that it is entering this Agreement without relying upon any provider representation or warranty not expressly stated in this Agreement.  To the maximum extent permitted by Applicable Law, Provider disclaims any and all promises, representations and warranties, express, implied or statutory, including, but not limited to, any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, data accuracy, data security, and all warranties that may otherwise be implied. No warranties are made on the basis of trade usage, course of trade, or course of dealing or performance. 

8.   INDEMNIFICATION.

8.1.   Indemnification of Customer by Provider. Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Customer from and against all third-party claims, actions, complaints or proceedings (collectively, “Claims” and individually, a “Claim”), to the extent such Claim alleges that the Service infringes or misappropriates a third-party Intellectual Property Right; and, in each case, associated Losses.  Provider will have no liability for any Claim that arises from any: (x) use of the Service in violation of this Agreement; (y) modification of the Service by Customer (or any third party acting on Customer’s behalf); or (z) third-party products, services, hardware, software, or other materials, or combination of these with the Service, if the Service would not be infringing without this combination. In the event a Claim subject to this Section 8.1 necessitates cessation of the Service, Provider may terminate Customer’s subscription and refund to Customer any pre-paid fees for the unused portion of the terminated Subscription Term. 

8.2.    Indemnification of Provider by Customer. Except for any Claims in respect of which Provider is obligated to indemnify Customer under Section 8.1, Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Provider from and against all Claims that may, at any time, arise out of or relate to Customer Data or Customer’s or an Authorized User’s use of the Service other than in accordance with this Agreement, and, in each case, associated Losses. 

8.3.   Indemnification Procedures. If any third party makes a Claim covered by Section 8.1 or 8.2 against an indemnitee (a “Covered Party”) with respect to which the Covered Party intends to seek indemnification under this Agreement, the Covered Party shall give prompt written notice of the Claim to the indemnifying Party, including a brief description of the amount and basis for the claim, if known. Upon receiving such notice, the indemnifying Party shall be obligated to defend the Covered Party against the Claim, and shall be entitled to assume control of the defense and settlement of the Claim. The Covered Party may participate in the defense and settlement of the Claim at its own expense, using its own counsel, but without any right of control. The indemnifying Party shall keep the Covered Party apprised as to the status of the Claim. Neither the indemnifying party nor any Covered Party shall be liable for any settlement of a Claim made without its consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Covered Party shall retain responsibility for all aspects of the Claim that are not subject to indemnification by the other Party hereunder.

9.   LIMITATION OF LIABILITY 

Except as expressly provided in this Section 9, neither Party shall have any liability under or in connection with this Agreement for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary or punitive damages, nor any liability for lost profits, loss of business opportunity, or business interruption, regardless of the theory of liability (including theories of contractual liability, tort liability (including negligence), or strict liability), even if the liable Party knew or should have known that those kinds of damages were possible. Each Party’s maximum cumulative liability under or in connection with this Agreement shall never exceed the injured Party’s actual direct damages, capped at the total amount paid or payable under this Agreement by Customer to Provider during the 12-month period preceding the occurrence of the event giving rise to the liability. The foregoing limitations of liability shall not be applicable (a) to a Party’s indemnification obligations under Section 8; (b) to any damages that the liable Party is not permitted to disclaim (or, as applicable, limit) under Applicable Law or (c) as a result of any breach of Section 6 (Confidentiality). Parties acknowledge that this Section 9 is an essential part of this Agreement, absent which the economic terms and other provisions of this Agreement would be substantially different.
