4. Appspace Security and Privacy Responsibility
4.1. Security. Appspace implements industry standard security procedures to help protect Customer Data from security attacks. Customer understands that use of the Products necessarily involves transmission of Customer Data over networks that are not owned, operated or controlled by Appspace, and Appspace is not responsible for any of Customer Data lost, altered, intercepted or stored across such networks. Appspace cannot guarantee, represent or warrant that Appspace’s security procedures will be error-free, that transmissions of Customer Data will always be secure or that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat Appspace’s security measures or those of Appspace’s third party service providers.
4.2. Data Protection. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 3.5 (Customer Responsibilities), Customer represents and warrants that no Sensitive Data, will be provided to Appspace under this Agreement on behalf of Customer. In the event of a change, Customer will notify Appspace in writing without undue delay, any anticipated change affecting the above confirmation. The Parties will then, prior to Appspace processing such Sensitive Data, agree to enter into a data processing agreement in accordance with Law, which shall amend this Agreement as is reasonably required to reflect their obligations and risks under Law and for Appspace to provide the Products in a manner that allows to Customer and Appspace to comply with their respective obligations under Law.
4.3. License Certifications and Audits. At Appspace’s reasonable request, Customer agrees to provide a signed certification that Customer is using all Products pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including compliance with the number of Users and Devices. Customer agrees to allow Appspace, or Appspace’s authorized agent, to audit Customer’s use of the Products, no more than once every twelve (12) months. Appspace will provide Customer with at least ten (10) days’ advance notice prior to the audit, and the audit will be conducted during normal business hours. Appspace will bear all out-of-pocket costs that Appspace incurs for the audit, unless the audit reveals that Customer has exceeded the number of Users and Devices. Customer will provide reasonable assistance, cooperation, and access to relevant information in the course of any audit at Customer’s own cost. If Customer exceeds the purchased number of Users and Devices, Appspace may invoice Customer for any past or ongoing excessive use, or additional users added, and Customer will pay the invoice promptly after receipt. This remedy is without prejudice to any other remedies available to Appspace at Law or equity or under this Agreement. To the extent Appspace is obligated to do so, Appspace may share audit results with certain of Appspace’s third party licensors or assign the audit rights specified in this Section 4.3 (License Certifications and Audits) to such licensors.
4.4. Privacy Policy. Please review Appspace’s Privacy Policy for more information on our use and collection of data relating the performance and usage of our Products and websites.
5. Services
5.1. Support and Maintenance Services. Appspace will provide the support and maintenance services (“Support and Maintenance Services”) for Products described in the Appspace Support Definitions located at https://www.appspace.com/legal/definitions (the “Appspace Support Definitions”). Support and Maintenance Services are subject to the terms of the Appspace Support Definitions and will be provided at the support level and during the support term specified in Customer the Order. The Appspace Support Definitions incorporates Appspace Service Level Agreement located at https://www.appspace.com/legal/sla (the “SLA”). Appspace shall provide Customer with the service level credits set forth in the SLA as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for Appspace’s failure to meet the service availability requirements set forth therein. The Appspace Support Definitions may be modified by Appspace from time to time to reflect process improvements or changing practices for Customer’s benefit. Appspace supports and provides fixes, patches or any other modifications to major versions of the Products for one year after the first major iteration of that version was released (as an example, Appspace supports version 5.2.2 for one year after version 5.2.3 was released). In the event of any conflict of terms between the Appspace Support Definitions and this Agreement, the terms within the Appspace Support Definitions shall control.
5.2. Professional Services. Appspace will provide professional services and training services (“Professional Services”) purchased in an Order in accordance with the descriptions and conditions for those services set forth in the Order and any accompanying service descriptions or datasheets, if applicable. Appspace will retain all right, title, interest and ownership (including all intellectual property rights) in and to any materials, deliverables, modifications, derivative works or developments provided by Appspace to Customer as part of the Professional Services (“Deliverables”). Any Deliverables provided to Customer may be used only in connection with the Products subject to the same use restrictions for the Products. If applicable, Customer will reimburse Appspace for reasonable travel and lodging expenses as incurred. All Professional Services are subject to the terms and conditions of the Appspace Professional Services Agreement. In the event of any conflict of terms between the Professional Services Agreement and this Agreement, the terms within the Professional Services Agreement shall control.
6. Orders, Payment and Delivery
6.1. Orders from Appspace. An Order will specify Customer’s authorized subscription use for each Product and may include quantities of Users and Devices, provided, all such included quantities cannot be decreased on the applicable Order. Orders can also include any storage, overage or capacity limits and in the event Customer exceeds the stated limits, Appspace may charge the Customer in the form of excess overage fees.
6.2. Orders through a Reseller. This Agreement applies whether Customer purchases the Products directly from Appspace or through any Appspace authorized reseller or distributor (“Reseller”). If Customer purchases through a Reseller, Customer’s use of the Products shall be as stated in the Order placed by Reseller for Customer, and Reseller is responsible for the accuracy of any such Order. Resellers are not authorized to make any promises or commitments on Appspace’s behalf, and Appspace is not bound by any obligations to Customer other than what Appspace specifies in this Agreement.
6.3. Delivery. Appspace will deliver applicable Products login instructions to the email address(es) specified in an Order when Appspace has received payment of all applicable fees. All deliveries will be electronic, and installation is the responsibility of the Customer. Appspace shall have no further delivery obligations after delivery of the license unless stated otherwise.
6.4. Payment. Customer agrees to pay all fees to Appspace in accordance with the terms of each Order. Other than as expressly set forth in Section 10.2 (IP Indemnification by Appspace), all amounts are non-refundable, non-cancelable and non-creditable. In making payments, Customer acknowledges that Customer is not relying on future availability of any Products beyond the current License Term or any New Releases. If Customer adds Users and Devices during Customer’s License Term, Appspace will charge Customer for the increased number of Users and Devices pursuant to the then-currently applicable rates in Customer’s current billing cycle. If Customer pays by credit card, Customer agrees that Appspace may bill Customer’s credit card or invoice Customer for renewals, additional Users and Devices, and unpaid fees, as applicable. If Customer purchases any Products through an Order with a Reseller, Customer owes payment to the Reseller as agreed between Customer and the Reseller, but Customer acknowledges that Appspace may terminate Customer’s rights to use Products if Appspace does not receive Appspace’s corresponding payment from the Reseller, with at least five (5) business day’s prior notice to Customer. In the event the Reseller fails to pay Appspace, Customer agrees to use best efforts to have Appspace paid either by Reseller or Customer. Upon termination, any unpaid payments for performed Services will be accelerated and become immediately due and payable. In addition to any other remedies that Appspace may have at Law or equity, any late payments will be subject to a service charge equal to 1.5% per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by Law, whichever is less. Customer will reimburse Appspace for all reasonable costs incurred in collecting any late payments or interest, including attorney’s fees and collection agency fees. In addition to any other rights or remedies that Appspace may have at Law or in equity, Customer acknowledges that if payment is not made within thirty (30) days of the date of the Order, whether owed directly to Appspace or directly to a Reseller, then, notwithstanding any language to the contrary in this Agreement (including Section 15.8 (Dispute Resolution), or any other agreement which Customer may have with Appspace, Appspace will have the right to terminate or disable all Products with no liability to Customer, including any liability for loss of content or for lack of backup.
6.5. Taxes. This Section 6.5 (Taxes) will not apply if Customer placed Customer’s Order through a Reseller. Customer will be responsible for all related bank charges, taxes, withholdings, duties and levies in connection with the Products charges (excluding taxes based on the net income of Appspace). Customer’s payments under this Agreement exclude any taxes or duties payable in respect of the Products in the jurisdiction where the payment is either made or received. To the extent that any such taxes or duties are payable by Appspace, Customer must pay to Appspace the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer may have obtained an exemption from relevant taxes or duties as of the time such taxes or duties are levied or assessed. In that case, Customer will have the right to provide to Appspace any such exemption information, and Appspace will use reasonable efforts to provide such invoicing documents as may enable Customer to obtain a refund or credit for the amount so paid from any relevant revenue authority if such a refund or credit is available.
7. Term and Termination
7.1. Agreement Term. This Agreement is in effect for as long as Customer has a valid Order (the “Term”), unless sooner terminated as permitted in this Agreement.
7.2. License Terms and Renewals. Products are provided for a set term specified in an applicable Order. The term of each Product license (the “License Term”) will end upon any termination of this Agreement or the applicable Order, regardless of being identified as “perpetual” or if no expiration date is specified. Except as otherwise specified, License Terms will automatically renew for periods equal to the initial term period stated on such Order, unless either Party provides the other with thirty (30) days’ written notice prior to the end of the relevant License Term. Unless expressly provided for, Product renewals will be at Appspace’s then current-list price. If Customer upgrades Products prior to the License Term renewal date, then Customer’s payment due for the upgraded Products will be prorated and credited based on Customer’s remaining License Term and the date on Customer’s upgraded invoice will become Customer’s new renewal date.

8.3. Customer Warranty. Customer represents and warrants that: (a) Customer has the necessary and appropriate rights, releases and permissions to provide Customer Data to Appspace and permits Appspace to use and process Customer Data in accordance with this Agreement, and (b) Customer Data does not and will not infringe or misappropriate any third party right, including any intellectual property rights, privacy rights or violate any Laws.
8.4. Disclaimer. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTIES IN SECTION 8.2 (APPSPACE WARRANTY), All PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS,” AND “AS AVAILABLE,” AND APPSPACE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, FUNCTIONALITY, OR MERCHANTABILITY, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY. CUSTOMER MAY HAVE OTHER STATUTORY RIGHTS, BUT THE DURATION OF STATUTORILY REQUIRED WARRANTIES, IF ANY, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE SHORTEST PERIOD PERMITTED BY LAW. APPSPACE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DELAYS, INTERRUPTIONS, SERVICE FAILURES AND OTHER PROBLEMS INHERENT IN USE OF THE INTERNET AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS OR OTHER SYSTEMS OUTSIDE THE REASONABLE CONTROL OF APPSPACE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, APPSPACE DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT: (A) THE PRODUCTS WILL BE ERROR-FREE; (B) THE PRODUCTS WILL OPERATE IN COMBINATION WITH ANY OTHER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM, OR DATA; (C) THE PRODUCTS WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATIONS; (D) THE PRODUCTS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS UPON DELIVERY TO CUSTOMER; (E) ANY STORED DATA WILL NOT BE LOST OR CORRUPTED; OR THAT (F) ALL ERRORS IN THE PRODUCTS WILL BE CORRECTED.
9. Confidentiality. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, each Party agrees that all confidential or proprietary business, technical and financial information disclosed to such party (“Receiving Party”) by the disclosing Party (“Disclosing Party”) constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure, or which should be reasonably understood by Receiving Party as the confidential or proprietary information of Disclosing Party or its Affiliates. Any Products and any performance information relating to the Products shall be deemed Confidential Information of Appspace without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized in this Agreement, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information. The Receiving Party’s nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (a) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (b) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (c) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (d) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such Confidential Information. The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a Law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice, if and as permitted by Law, to the Disclosing Party). The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information may cause substantial harm for which damages alone may not be a sufficient remedy; and therefore, that upon any such disclosure or threatened disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief (without posting a bond or other security) in addition to whatever other remedies the Disclosing Party might have at Law. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 9 (Confidentiality) shall not operate as a separate warranty with respect to the operation of any Product. The obligations set forth in this Section 9 (Confidentiality) will terminate three (3) years after the expiration or earlier termination of the Term (as defined below).
10. Indemnification
10.1. Customer Indemnification. Customer will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Appspace from and against any loss, cost, liability or damage, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, for which Appspace becomes liable arising from or relating to: (i) any claim brought by a third party alleging that Customer Data, or Customer’s use of the Subscription Services in violation of this Agreement infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third party or violates Law; or (ii) any claim brought that use of the Products by Customer or Customer’s Affiliates in breach of this Agreement.

If Customer’s use of a Product is (or in Appspace’s opinion is likely to be) enjoined, if required by settlement, or if Appspace determines such actions are reasonably necessary to avoid material liability, Appspace may, at Appspace’s option and in Appspace’s reasonable discretion: (i) procure a license for Customer’s continued use of the Product in accordance with this Agreement; (ii) substitute a substantially functionally similar Product; or (iii) terminate Customer’s right to continue using the Product and issue a pro rata refund for any prepaid amounts for the Subscription Services not provided. Appspace’s indemnification obligations above under Section 10.2 (IP Indemnification by Appspace) do not apply: (1) if the Customer has not been charged by or paid any fees to Appspace in the 12 month period immediately preceding the Claim; (2) if the Product is modified or combined to a non-Appspace product by any party other than Appspace and without Appspace’s written approval, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such modification; (3) to unauthorized use of Products; (4) to any Claim arising as a result of (y) Customer Data (or circumstances covered by Customer’s indemnification obligations in Section 10.1 (Customer Indemnification)) or (z) any Third-Party Materials contained with the Products; (5) to any unsupported release of the Product; or (6) if Customer settles or make any admissions with respect to a Claim without Appspace’s prior written consent. THIS SECTION 10.2 (IP INDEMNIFICATION BY APPSPACE) STATES APPSPACE’S SOLE LIABILITY AND CUSTOMER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PRODUCT OR OTHER ITEMS PROVIDED BY APPSPACE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
10.3. Indemnification Procedures. The indemnification obligations in this Section 10 (Indemnification) are subject to the indemnified Party receiving (a) prompt written notice of such claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for the indemnifying Party to respond without prejudice); (b) giving the indemnifying Party the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, or settlement of such claim, provided any such settlement unconditionally releases the indemnified Party of all liability; and (c) all reasonable necessary cooperation by the indemnifying Party, at the indemnifying Party’s expense.
11. Limitation of Liability.
11.1. Exclusion of Damages. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF USE, LOST DATA, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, COSTS OF DELAY OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE.
11.2. Damages Cap. NEITHER PARTY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO THE OTHER SHALL EXCEED THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY CUSTOMER FOR THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES IN THE 12 MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE CLAIM.

Appspace shall not be responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Data resulting from any such access by third party add-on vendors.
