You agree to pay all fees set forth in the Order Forms annually in advance for the length of the Term set forth in the Order Form (e.g., if the Initial Term is for two (2) years, You will pay the annual fee in advance each year). In the event You are liable for any early termination fee for the early cancellation or termination of these Terms of Service as provided in Section 5(c), We shall bill You for such early termination fee upon such cancellation or termination.

An Invoice for the Initial Term (the “Initial Invoice”) shall be provided and shall be due and payable in advance of the Initial Term (or, if the Initial Term is for more than one (1) year, in advance of the first year of the Initial Term). Invoices will be provided annually thereafter at least thirty (30) days in advance of Your renewal date (or, if Your Initial Term is for more than one (1) year, in advance of each subsequent year during Your Initial Term) unless otherwise specified in the Order Form.

For example, if the Effective Date is April 10, the end of the Initial Term shall be April 9 of the following year. Following the Initial Term, these Terms of Service shall renew for consecutive periods of one (1) year (each a “Renewal Term”, and each Renewal Term together with the Initial Term, the “Term”), unless either party notifies the other party in writing, at least thirty (30) days before the end of the Term, of its desire to not renew the Term. Upon request, You shall acknowledge the commencement of each Renewal Term in writing; provided, that failure to acknowledge shall not affect the existence of the Renewal Term.

You may also terminate these Terms of Service upon at least five (5) days’ written notice to Us within the first thirty (30) days of the Initial Term of Your initial Order Form without cause if You are not satisfied with the Service (a “Termination for Convenience”), in which event We shall refund the fees prepaid by You for the terminated Service on a pro rata basis for the remainder of the Initial Term from the effective date of notification, provided that You are not then in breach of Your obligations under these Terms of Service.
- Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms of Service, We may also terminate these Terms of Service immediately upon written notice to You (i) if You fail to pay any outstanding invoice and do not cure such failure as provided in Section 3, or (ii) due to any breach by You of Section 8 or Section 9.
- If these Terms of Service are terminated in accordance with Section 5(a) or 5(b) (other than by You under clause (i) or (ii) of Section 5(a) or due to a Termination for Convenience), You will pay to Us an early termination fee in the amount equal to all fees that would have become payable had these Terms of Service remained in effect until expiration of the Term will become immediately due and payable, and You shall pay such early termination fee, together with all previously-accrued but not yet paid fees, on receipt of Our invoice therefor. In no event will termination, including by You under clause (i) or (ii) of Section 5(a) or due to a Termination for Convenience, relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees payable to Us for the period prior to the effective date of termination. Upon any termination of these Terms of Service, We may, but are not obligated to, delete any of Your DataMaestro Data stored by us.
- Upon termination of these Terms of Service for any reason, all rights granted to You for the Service shall immediately cease and You shall immediately (i) cease using the Service and Documentation, (ii) if You were using the On-Premise Version, remove and destroy all copies, installations, and instances of the On-Premise Software relating thereto from all of Your equipment on which such On-Premise Software was installed, and (iii) pay Us all amounts due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof.

You assume full responsibility for any damages, losses, costs, or harms arising from the use of or inability to use Third Party Applications.

Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) at the time of the disclosure or thereafter is lawfully obtained from publicly available sources generally known by the public (other than as a result of a disclosure by the receiving party or its representatives), (ii) is available to the receiving party on a non-confidential basis from a source that is not and was not bound by a confidentiality agreement with respect to the Confidential Information, or (iii) has been independently acquired or developed by the receiving party without violating its obligations under these Terms of Service or under any federal or state law, and without using any Confidential Information. This Section 9 shall supersede any previous agreement between the parties relating to confidential treatment and/or non-disclosure of Confidential Information; provided, however, that any information disclosed pursuant to that earlier agreement shall be deemed to be Confidential Information and protected under the terms of these Terms of Service as if these Terms of Service had been in place at the time of such disclosures.

This customary commercial license is provided in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Software) and, for Department of Defense transactions, DFAR 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) and DFAR 227.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not granted under these terms, it must negotiate with Us to determine if there are acceptable terms for granting those rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically granting those rights must be included in any applicable agreement.
- Disputes. If any dispute arises out of or in connection with these Terms of Service including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination (a “Dispute”), a party may give written notice to the other party (a “Dispute Notice”) specifying the nature of the dispute or difference to the other party. During the period of ten (10) business days after delivery of the Dispute Notice is received, or any longer period agreed in writing by the parties (the “Initial Period”), each of the parties must use their reasonable endeavors and act in good faith to resolve the Dispute by discussion and negotiation. If the parties are unable to resolve the Dispute within the Initial Period, the Dispute must be referred to a senior executive of the Parties to resolve the Dispute (each an “Authorized Person”). The Authorized Persons must use their reasonable efforts and act in good faith to resolve the Dispute by discussion and negotiation within ten (10) business days after end of the Initial Period. If the parties are unable to resolve the Dispute by the end of such additional ten (10) business day period, the parties shall be free to exercise any rights and remedies they may have under these Terms of Service or under law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek preliminary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions or other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction prior to commencing or pending the completion of the procedures set forth herein.
- Miscellaneous. We have the right to discontinue the Service at any time through notice to You at Our sole discretion; provided that if We discontinue the Service, We shall refund the fees prepaid by You for the terminated Service on a pro rata basis for the remainder of the Term from the effective date of notification. These Terms of Service shall be binding on and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. These Terms of Service (including the Order Forms) may not be assigned by You (whether by operation of law or otherwise) without Our prior written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. We may assign these Terms of Service (including the Order Forms) without Your consent or notice to You. No failure by either party to exercise or enforce any rights under these Terms of Service shall act as a waiver of such rights. The parties are independent contractors. These Terms of Service do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties. If any provision of these Terms of Service is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service will remain in full force and the unenforceable provision shall be interpreted so as to render it enforceable while approximating the parties’ intent as closely as possible. In the event that any action, suit, or other legal or administrative proceeding is instituted or commenced by either party against the other party arising out of or related to these Terms of Service, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney’s fees and disbursements from the non-prevailing party.
SUPPORT AND SERVICE LEVEL TERMS
Support Terms (Hosted Version and On-Premise Version)
We provide technical support to help You, as a subscriber to the Service, troubleshoot and resolve issues that arise when using the Service. During the troubleshooting and resolution process, You are expected to fulfill reasonable tasks based on the recommendations of Our support team. Access to Our support will be granted only to Your designated support contacts that are knowledgeable about the Service and Your technology environment.
We will provide support to You via both telephone and electronic mail on weekdays during the hours of 9:00 am through 6:00 pm Eastern Standard time, with the exclusion of Federal Holidays (“Support Hours”). You may initiate a help desk ticket during support hours by calling 201-984-3036 or any time by emailing email@example.com. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to all Helpdesk tickets within one (1) business day.
Support does not include assistance with or support for products or services that are not provided by Us, including for Planning Analytics. We shall not have any obligation to correct any issue caused by (a) the integration of any unauthorized feature, program or device to the Service, (b) use of the Service other than in compliance with these Terms of Service, or (c) use of the Service in a manner not consistent with the applicable Documentation.
If You use the On-Premise Version, We shall provide You, without charge, with the ability to download Updates without additional charge. Updates will become part of the On-Premise Software and will be subject to the provisions of these Terms of Service. We will not have any obligation as part of support to correct any issue that (a) would have been corrected had You downloaded and installed any Updates made available to You, or (b) was caused by any change made to the On-Premise Software by You or Your agent. We may cease to support versions of the On-Premise Software that are more than six (6) months out of date and will provide notice thereof on Our website.
Service Level Terms (Hosted Version Only)
We shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Hosted Version of the Service available 99.9% of the time, measured monthly, excluding holidays and weekends and scheduled and emergency maintenance. Any downtime resulting from (a) outages of third party communication facilities, hosting, utility or Internet service providers, (b) other reasons beyond Our control, (c) a fault or failure of Your computer systems or networks, (d) the integration of any unauthorized feature, program or device to the Service, or (e) use of the Service other than in compliance with these Terms of Service or the Documentation will also be excluded from any such calculation. Your sole and exclusive remedy, and Our entire liability, in connection with Service availability shall be that for each period of downtime lasting longer than [one (1) hour], We will credit You five percent (5%) of monthly (one-twelfth of the annual) Service fees for each period of thirty (30) or more consecutive minutes of downtime; provided that in any event (a) no more than one such credit will accrue per day, and (b) such credits shall not be cumulative beyond a total of credits for one (1) week of Service fees in any one (1) calendar month. Downtime shall begin to accrue as soon as You (with notice to Us) recognize that downtime is taking place, and will continue until the availability of the Service is restored. In order to receive downtime credit, You must notify Us in writing within twenty-four (24) hours from the time of downtime, and failure to provide such notice will forfeit the right to receive downtime credit. Such credits may not be redeemed for cash. We will only apply a credit to Your next payment following the month in which the incident occurred. Our blocking of data communications or other Service in accordance with Our policies shall not be deemed to be a failure to provide adequate service levels hereunder.
We are continuously working to improve Our product and service infrastructure and to upgrade to new functionality. In the case of specific maintenance activity that is expected to materially affect Your use of the Service, We will endeavor to provide You with ten (10) day’s advance notice by email (to the contact(s) provided by You for Your account). On rare occasions, it may be necessary to conduct emergency or unscheduled maintenance activities. In these cases, We will make reasonable efforts to provide as much advance notice as possible to Your listed contact.
