Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, Vendor has no liability for Prohibited Data or use of a Service for High Risk Activities.
2. Support. During the Term, Vendor will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide support for the Services and Software during its standard business hours in accordance with Vendor’s standard support practices (“Support”). Additional Support may be available with certain Paid Subscriptions or may be purchased separately from Vendor.
3. Upgrades. Customer’s purchase of access to Services is not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features or dependent on any oral or written public or private comments made by Vendor regarding future functionality or features of the Services. From time to time, Vendor, in its sole discretion, may make available Upgrades under additional or different terms. Nothing in this Agreement obligates Vendor to make Upgrades available to Customer as part of the Services or otherwise unless specifically included in an Order.

Additionally, Customer’s use of certain features of the Service may be suspended if Customer exceeds the applicable usage limitations.
7. Third-Party Platforms. Use of Third-Party Platforms is subject to Customer’s agreement with the relevant provider and not this Agreement. Vendor does not control and has no liability for Third-Party Platforms, including their security, functionality, operation, availability, or interoperability with the Services or how the Third-Party Platforms or their providers use Customer Data. By enabling a Third-Party Platform to interact with the Services, Customer authorizes Vendor to access and exchange Customer Data with such Third-Party Platform on Customer’s behalf.
8. Commercial Terms.
8.1 Paid Subscription Term. Except as set forth in the applicable Order, the initial term of a Paid Subscription will be for full calendar month, and will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless either party gives the other party notice of non-renewal at least 5 days before the then-current Paid Subscription Term ends.
8.2 Fees and Taxes. Except as otherwise agreed in the applicable Order, Fees for the Services are described on the Pricing Page (“Fees”). All Fees will be paid in US dollars unless otherwise agreed by the parties. Fees for Paid Subscriptions are invoiced as described in the Order. All other Fees are invoiced monthly in arrears. Unless the Order provides otherwise, all Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. If Customer elects to pay by credit card, Customer hereby authorizes Vendor and its third-party payment processors to charge Fees to Customer’s credit card account when due.

9.2 Warranty Remedy. If Vendor breaches the Limited Warranty and Customer makes a reasonably detailed warranty claim in the manner required by Vendor within 30 days of discovering a breach of the Limited Warranty for the applicable Services, then Vendor will use reasonable efforts to correct the non-conformity. If Vendor cannot do so within 30 days of receipt of Customer’s warranty claim, either party may terminate the Paid Subscription as it relates to the non-conforming Service. Vendor will then refund to Customer any pre-paid, unused fees for the terminated portion of the applicable Paid Subscription. This Section sets forth Customer’s exclusive remedy and Vendor’s entire liability for breach of the Limited Warranty. These warranties do not apply to: (a) issues caused by Customer’s or Users’ misuse of or unauthorized modifications to the applicable Service; (b) issues in or caused by Third-Party Platforms or other third-party systems; (c) use of the applicable Service other than according to the Documentation; or (d) Trials and Betas or other free or evaluation use.
9.3 Disclaimers. Except as expressly provided in Section 9.1 (Limited Warranty), the Services, Support, and all other Vendor services are provided “AS IS”. Vendor, on its own behalf and on behalf of its suppliers and licensors, makes no other warranties, whether express, implied, statutory, or otherwise, including warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, or noninfringement. Vendor does not warrant that Customer’s use of the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free, that Vendor will review Customer Data for accuracy, or that it will maintain Customer Data without loss. Vendor is not liable for delays, failures, or problems inherent in use of the Internet and electronic communications or other systems outside Vendor’s control. Customer may have other statutory rights, but any statutorily required warranties will be limited to the shortest legally permitted period.

Except where an exclusive remedy is provided in this Agreement, exercising a remedy under this Agreement, including termination, does not limit other remedies a party may have.
11. Ownership. Neither party grants the other any rights or licenses not expressly set out in this Agreement. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, as between the parties, Customer retains all intellectual property rights and other rights in Customer Data provided to Vendor. Except for Customer’s use rights in this Agreement, Vendor and its licensors retain all intellectual property rights and other rights in the Services, Software, Documentation, Usage Data, and Vendor technology, templates, formats, and dashboards, including any modifications or improvements to these items made by Vendor. If Customer provides Vendor with feedback or suggestions regarding the Services or other Vendor offerings, Vendor may use the feedback or suggestions without restriction or obligation.
12. Limitations of Liability.
12.1 Consequential Damages Waiver. Except for Excluded Claims (as defined below) neither party (nor its suppliers or licensors) will have any liability arising out of or related to this Agreement for any loss of use, lost data, lost profits, failure of security mechanisms, interruption of business, or any indirect, special, incidental, reliance, or consequential damages of any kind, even if informed of their possibility in advance.
12.2 Liability Cap. Except for Excluded Claims, each party’s (and its suppliers’ and licensor’s) entire liability arising out of or related to this Agreement will not exceed in aggregate the amounts paid or payable by Customer to Vendor pursuant to this Agreement during the 12 months prior to the date on which the applicable claim giving rise to the liability arose under this Agreement.
12.3 Excluded Claims. “Excluded Claims” means: (a) Customer’s breach of Sections 1.4 (Restrictions) or 5 (Customer Obligations); (b) either party’s breach of Section 14 (Confidentiality) (but excluding claims relating to Customer Data); or (c) amounts payable to third parties under the indemnifying party’s obligations in Section 13 (Indemnification).
12.4 Nature of Claims and Failure of Essential Purpose. The waivers and limitations in this Section 12.4 apply regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise and will survive and apply even if any limited remedy in this Agreement fails of its essential purpose.
13.1 Indemnification by Vendor. Vendor will defend Customer from and against any third-party claim to the extent alleging that a Service, when used by Customer as permitted under the applicable Order infringes or misappropriates a third-party’s intellectual property rights, and will indemnify and hold harmless Customer against any damages and costs awarded against Customer (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) or agreed in a settlement by Vendor resulting from the claim.
13.2 Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend Vendor from and against any third-party claim to the extent resulting from Customer Data, or Customer’s breach or alleged breach of Section 5 (Customer Obligations), and will indemnify and hold harmless Vendor against any damages and costs awarded against Vendor (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) or agreed in a settlement by Customer resulting from the claim.
13.3 Procedures. The indemnifying party’s obligations in this Section 13 are subject to it receiving: (a) prompt written notice of the claim; (b) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, and settlement of the claim; and (c) all reasonably necessary cooperation of the indemnified party, at the indemnifying party’s expense for reasonable out-of-pocket costs. The indemnifying party may not settle any claim without the indemnified party’s prior consent if settlement would require the indemnified party to admit fault or take or refrain from taking any action (other than relating to use of the Services, when Vendor is the indemnifying party). The indemnified party may participate in a claim with its own counsel at its own expense.
13.4 Mitigation. In response to an actual or potential infringement or misappropriation claim or otherwise relating to violation of intellectual property rights, if required by settlement or injunction or as Vendor determines necessary to avoid material liability, Vendor may at its option: (a) procure rights for Customer’s continued use of the applicable Service; (b) replace or modify the allegedly infringing portion of the applicable Service to avoid infringement or misappropriation without reducing the Service’s overall functionality; or (c) terminate the affected Order and refund to Customer any pre-paid, unused fees for the terminated portion of the affected Paid Subscription Terms.
13.5 Exceptions. Vendor’s obligations in this Section 13 do not apply: (a) to infringement or misappropriation resulting from Customer’s modification of Services or use of Services in combination with items not provided by Vendor (including Third-Party Platforms); (b) to infringement resulting from Software other than the most recent release; (c) to infringement or misappropriation resulting from or based on AI Features or their outputs, (d) to unauthorized use of Services; (e) if Customer settles or makes any admissions about a claim without Vendor’s prior consent; or (f) to Trials and Betas (as defined in Section 16) or other free or evaluation use.

14.1 Definition. “Confidential Information” means information disclosed to the receiving party (“Recipient”) under this Agreement that is designated by the disclosing party (“Discloser”) as proprietary or confidential or that should be reasonably understood to be proprietary or confidential due to its nature and the circumstances of its disclosure. Vendor’s Confidential Information includes the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any technical or performance information about the Services.
14.2 Obligations. As Recipient, each party will: (a) hold Confidential Information in confidence and not disclose it to third parties except as permitted in this Agreement, including Section 4.1 (Use of Customer Data); and (b) only use Confidential Information to fulfill its obligations and exercise its rights in this Agreement. At Discloser’s request, Recipient will delete all Confidential Information, except, in the case where Vendor is the Recipient, Vendor may retain the Customer’s Confidential Information to the extent required to continue to provide the Services. Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors, and other representatives having a legitimate need to know (including, for Vendor, the subcontractors referenced in Section 18.9), provided it remains responsible for their compliance with this Section 14 and they are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective than this Section 14. Nothing in this Section 14 will limit rights granted under Section 4.
14.3 Exclusions. These confidentiality obligations do not apply to information that Recipient can document: (a) is or becomes public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; (b) it rightfully knew or possessed prior to receipt under this Agreement; (c) it rightfully received from a third party without breach of confidentiality obligations; or (d) it independently developed without using Confidential Information.
14.4 Remedies. Unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information may cause substantial harm for which damages alone are an insufficient remedy. Each party may seek appropriate equitable relief, in addition to other available remedies, for breach or threatened breach of this Section 14.
15 Required Disclosures. Nothing in this Agreement prohibits either party from making disclosures, including of Customer Data and other Confidential Information, if required by Law, subpoena, or court order, provided (if permitted by Law) it notifies the other party in advance and cooperates in any effort to obtain confidential treatment.
16. Trials and Betas. If Customer receives access to Services or features thereof on a free or trial basis or as an alpha, beta, or early access offering (“Trials and Betas”), use is permitted only for Customer’s internal evaluation during the period designated by Vendor (or if not designated, 30 days). Trials and Betas are optional and either party may terminate Trials and Betas at any time for any reason. Trials and Betas may be inoperable, incomplete, or include features that Vendor may never release, and their features and performance information are Vendor’s Confidential Information. Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, Vendor provides no warranty, indemnity, SLA, or support for Trials and Betas, and its liability for Trials and Betas will not exceed US$50.
17. Publicity. Neither party may publicly announce that the parties have entered into this Agreement, except with the other party’s prior consent or as required by Laws.

18.7 Waivers and Severability. Waivers must be signed by the waiving party’s authorized representative and cannot be implied from conduct. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, it will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so the rest of this Agreement remains in effect.
