Customer will notify BurnRate of any security compromise affecting its Users' authentication credentials used to access the BurnRate Platform, any Customer systems or networks that interoperate with or transmit data to the BurnRate Platform, including Customer Applications and any Customer Third Party Applications within 72 hours of confirmation of the same.

In the event of a material breach of the Agreement by either party, the nonbreaching party may terminate the Agreement or any Sales Order affected by the breach by giving the breaching party written notice of the breach and the non-breaching party's intention to terminate. If the breach has not been cured within the period ending 30 days after such notice, and if the non-breaching party provides written notice of termination to the breaching party ("Termination Notice"), then this Agreement or any such Sales Order will terminate within the time period specified in the Termination Notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer's failure to pay any overdue fees and expenses within 30 days of BurnRate notifying Customer of the overdue payment will constitute a material breach of this Agreement. If Customer has not cured a material breach within the applicable cure period, then BurnRate may, on not less than 5 business days' prior written notice to Customer, in its sole discretion, and without prejudice to its other rights following material breach and failure to cure, until such breach has been cured in full, suspend performance of some or all of BurnRate's obligations to provide Services under this Agreement.

Following any termination of the Agreement or any Sales Order, each party will, within 30 days of such termination, (i) immediately cease use of any Confidential Information of the other communicated for the purposes of this Agreement or such Sales Order, and (ii) return or destroy (and certify destruction of) all copies of any Confidential Information of the other party disclosed under the Agreement or such Sales Order within 30 days of such termination, subject to Section 7.1.4 and each party's customary backup and archival processes.
8.8. Suspension. BurnRate may suspend Customer's or any User's right to access or use any portion of the Subscription Services, or to connect the BurnRate Platform to Customer Third Party Applications, if BurnRate determines that Customer's or Users' use of the Subscription Services, or Customer Third Party Applications, (i) pose a security risk to the Subscription Services or any third party, (ii) may adversely impact the Subscription Services, or the networks or data of any other BurnRate customer, business partner or service provider, (iii) do not comply with the AUP or applicable law, or (iv) may subject BurnRate or any third party to liability. BurnRate will endeavor to provide as much notice as is reasonably practicable in the circumstances, and to reinstate the Subscription Services as soon as reasonably practicable following correction of the issue.
8.9. Survival. The provisions of Sections 1, 3.3-3.4, 4.3-4.4, 4.6, 6, 7, 8.5-8.9, 9-11 and 14 of this Agreement will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
9.1. BurnRate's Infringement Indemnification.
9.1.1. Defense and Indemnity. If any third party makes any claim against Customer that, if true, would constitute an BurnRate Infringement (defined in Section 5.1.4) then, upon notification of such claim, BurnRate will, at its sole cost and expense, defend Customer against such claim and any related proceeding brought by such third party against Customer, and indemnify Customer from and against all damages, fines and penalties finally awarded against Customer or agreed to be paid by Customer in a written settlement approved in writing by BurnRate, and resulting from the BurnRate Infringement. BurnRate's obligations under this Section 9.1.1 are subject to Customer's compliance with the "Indemnification Conditions" (defined below).
"Indemnification Conditions" means the following conditions with which a party must comply in order to be entitled to defense or indemnification under the Agreement by the other party: (i) the indemnified party notifies the indemnifying party in writing of any claim that might be the subject of indemnification promptly after any executive officer of the indemnified party or member of the indemnified party's legal department first knows of the claim, provided, however, that no failure to so notify an indemnifying party will relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Agreement except to the extent that such failure materially prejudices defense of the claim, and except to the extent of damages incurred by the indemnifying party as a result of the delay; (ii) the indemnifying party is given primary control over the defense and settlement of the claim (subject to the foregoing, the indemnified party may nonetheless participate in the defense at its sole cost and expense); (iii) the indemnified party makes no admission of liability (except as required by applicable law) nor enters into any settlement without the indemnifying party's prior written agreement (not to be unreasonably withheld); (iv) the indemnified party provides such assistance in defense of the proceeding as the indemnifying party may reasonably request, at the indemnifying party's reasonable expense; (v) the indemnified party complies with any court order or reasonable settlement made in connection with the proceeding; and (vi) the indemnified party uses all commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate its losses.
9.1.2. BurnRate's Mitigation Rights. If any Subscription Services become (or in BurnRate's opinion are likely to become) the subject of any infringement or misappropriation claim, BurnRate may, and if Customer's use of the Subscription Services is enjoined, BurnRate must, at its sole expense, either: (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using the relevant Subscription Services; (ii) replace or modify the relevant Subscription Services in a functionally equivalent manner so that they no longer infringe; or (iii) terminate the applicable Sales Order or Customer's rights to use affected Subscription Services, and refund to Customer a pro-rata amount of any subscription fees prepaid to BurnRate and applicable to the unutilized portion of the Subscription Term for the terminated Subscription Services.
9.1.3. Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, BurnRate will have no obligation with respect to any infringement or misappropriation claim to the extent based upon (i) any use of the Subscription Services not in accordance with their applicable license rights, (ii) the combination of the Subscription Services with other products, equipment, software, services or data not supplied by BurnRate where the infringement would not have occurred but for such combination, (iii) BurnRate's compliance with Customer's specifications, configuration requirements, or other instructions (except to the extent that BurnRate knew that such compliance would infringe a third party's Intellectual Property Rights), (iv) any use of any version of any BurnRate Platform or Supplemental Materials other than the most current version made available to Customer after notice from BurnRate that Customer must upgrade to such release to avoid an infringement or misappropriation claim and Customer has had a reasonable time in which to implement such upgrade, (v) any modification of the Subscription Services not made by BurnRate or its subcontractors, or at its or their express direction, or (vi) any Customer Materials.
9.2. Customer's Infringement Indemnification.
9.2.1. Defense and Indemnity. If any third party makes any claim against BurnRate that BurnRate's use of any Customer Materials infringes any third party patent existing under the laws of the United States, Canada, any member state of the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brazil, South Korea, India or Japan, or infringes or violates any third party copyright, trademark, service mark, privacy right or data protection right, or results from any misappropriation by Customer of such third party's trade secrets or privacy rights (collectively, a "Customer Infringement") then, upon notification of such claim, Customer will, at its sole cost and expense, defend BurnRate against such claim and any related proceeding brought by such third party against Customer, and Customer will indemnify BurnRate from and against all damages, fines and penalties finally awarded against BurnRate or agreed to be paid by BurnRate in a written settlement approved in writing by Customer, and resulting from the Customer Infringement. Customer's obligations under this Section 9.2.1 are subject to BurnRate's compliance with the Indemnification Conditions.
9.2.2. Mitigation Rights. If provision of Customer Materials is, or in Customer's reasonable opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement or misappropriation of any intellectual property right of any third party, then Customer will have the right to: (i) procure the rights necessary for Customer to continue to provide Customer's Materials; (ii) replace or modify the Customer Materials in a functionally equivalent manner so that they no longer infringe; or, if the options described in (i) and (ii) above are not available to Customer on commercially reasonable terms, (iii) terminate BurnRate's rights to use the Customer Materials (in which case BurnRate's obligations to perform the Services will be reduced to the extent that BurnRate required the Customer Materials to perform, and any such termination will be treated as a termination for convenience by Customer).
9.2.3. Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer will have no obligation under this Section 9.2 or otherwise with respect to any infringement or misappropriation claim to the extent based upon (i) any use of the Customer Materials not in accordance with this Agreement and their applicable license rights notified by Customer to BurnRate, (ii) combination of the Customer Materials with other products, equipment, software, services or data not supplied by Customer where the infringement would not have occurred but for such combination, but excluding combination with any BurnRate Platform, (iii) Customer's compliance with BurnRate's specifications or instructions, (iv) any use of any version of any Customer Materials other than the most current version made available to BurnRate after notice from Customer that BurnRate must upgrade to such release to avoid an infringement or misappropriation claim and BurnRate has had a reasonable time in which to implement such upgrade, (v) any modification of the Customer Materials not made by Customer or at its express direction, or (vi) any data processed by the Customer Materials that Customer or its Users have not provided, made available, or required BurnRate to use or access.
9.3. Improper Use of BurnRate Platform. Customer will indemnify and hold BurnRate harmless from any claims, damages, losses, judgments, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or in connection with any non-compliance by Customer or its Users with the Acceptable Use Policy.
10.1. Exclusion of Certain Claims. SUBJECT TO SECTION 10.3, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR UNFORESEEABLE (INCLUDING ANY DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF DATA, GOODWILL, REVENUE OR PROFITS), EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF (i) THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY RELATED AGREEMENT, OR ANY SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PROVIDED HEREUNDER, OR (ii) ANY CLAIM, CAUSE OF ACTION, BREACH OF CONTRACT OR ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, ANY RELATED AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE, MISREPRESENTATION, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHER TORT.
10.2. Limitation of Liability. Subject to Section 10.3, neither party's maximum aggregate liability arising out of this Agreement or any related agreement will in any event exceed the fees paid to BurnRate under the Sales Order giving rise to the claim during the 12 month period immediately preceding the aggrieved party's first assertion of any claim against the other, regardless of whether any action or claim is based in contract, misrepresentation, warranty, indemnity, negligence, strict liability or other tort or otherwise.
10.3. Exceptions. Sections 10.1 and 10.2 do not apply to either party's (i) willful misconduct or gross negligence, (ii) infringement or misappropriation of any of the other's Intellectual Property Rights, or (iii) liability or loss which may not be limited by applicable law. Any amounts payable by an indemnified party to a third party pursuant to a judgment or to a settlement agreement approved in writing by an indemnifying party, liability for which falls within the indemnifying party's indemnification obligations under this Agreement, and all fees payable by Customer under this Agreement, will be deemed direct damages for purposes of this Section 10. Section 10.2 does not apply to (i) each party's defense and indemnification obligations, (ii) Customer's obligations to pay fees and expenses when due and payable under this Agreement, nor (iii) either party's obligations under Section 6 (Confidential Information) or Section 7 (Data Protection), provided, however, that except to the extent of willful misconduct or gross negligence of BurnRate, BurnRate's maximum aggregate liability under Section 7 will not exceed two times (2X) the fees paid by Customer to BurnRate under the affected Sales Order in the 12 month period immediately preceding Customer's first assertion of its claim.
10.4. Free Trial. With respect to any Free Trial, BurnRate's aggregate liability will in no event exceed one hundred US dollars, regardless of any theory of liability, and notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, including Sections 10.1-10.3.
10.5. General. Customer agrees that these exclusions and limitations apply even if the remedies are insufficient to cover all of the losses or damages of Customer or its Affiliates, or fail of their essential purpose and that without these limitations the fees for the Services would be significantly higher. Neither party may commence any action or proceeding under this Agreement more than two years after the occurrence of the applicable cause of action.
11.1. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware and, where such laws are preempted by the laws of the United States, by the internal laws of the United States, in each case without regard to (i) conflicts of laws principles, and (ii) the applicability, if any, of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
11.2. Venue and Jurisdiction. In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or interpretation thereof, the parties will submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the State courts of Delaware located in Wilmington, or the Federal District Court for the District of Delaware, and appeal courts therefrom. Each party hereby waives all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum nonconveniens. Process may be served on either party in the manner authorized by applicable law or court rule.
11.3. Legal Expenses. If any proceeding is brought by either party to enforce or interpret any term or provision of this Agreement, the substantially prevailing party in such proceeding will be entitled to recover, in addition to all other relief arising out of this Agreement, such party's reasonable attorneys' and other experts' (including without limitation accountants) fees and expenses.
The following additional terms and conditions ("Additional Terms of Service") apply to Customer's use of the Services, and are incorporated into this Agreement by this reference. The Additional Terms of Service are published at https://burnrate.io/legal:
• Support Program (does not apply to Free Trials)
• Service Levels (do not apply to Free Trials)
• Acceptable Use Policy
• Professional Services Terms (apply only if the Sales Order specifies that BurnRate is to provide Professional Services)
• Modification Policy (unless otherwise specified in the Sales Order)
13.1. Applicability. This section 13 only applies to Customers purchasing Services through a Channel Partner. If Customer is uncertain as to the applicability of this section to its purchase of Services, Customer should contact BurnRate for further information.
13.2. Channel Partners. If Customer acquired the Services from a Channel Partner, then this Agreement is not exclusive of any rights Customer obtains under the Channel Partner Sale Agreement; however, if there is any conflict between the provisions of this Agreement and the Channel Partner Sale Agreement, then the provisions of this Agreement prevail. If a Channel Partner has granted Customer any rights that BurnRate does not also directly grant to Customer in this Agreement, or that conflict with this Agreement, then Customer's sole recourse with respect to such rights is against the Channel Partner.
13.3. Term and Renewal. If Customer ordered the Services through a Channel Partner, then Section 8.4 is inapplicable, and the Subscription Term will begin on the Subscription Start Date and, subject to the remainder of Section 8, it will expire, renew and terminate in accordance with the terms of the Channel Partner Sale Agreement.
13.4. Fees and Payment. If Customer ordered the Services through a Channel Partner, then the provisions of Section 4.1-4.5 do not apply to Customer, and Customer's billing and payment rights and obligations are governed by the Channel Partner Sale Agreement. However, if the Channel Partner from whom Customer purchased the Services fails to pay BurnRate any amounts due in connection with Customer's use of the Services, then BurnRate may suspend Customer's rights to use the Services without liability, upon notice to Customer. Customer agrees that Customer's remedy in the event of such suspension is solely against the Channel Partner.
14.1. Affiliates. This Agreement set forth the general terms and conditions under which BurnRate will provide Services to Customer and its Affiliates. Sales Orders may be entered into under this Agreement by either the entity designated above as "Customer" or any of Customer's Affiliates. The entity that executes a Sales Order in the position of services recipient will be considered the "Customer" for all purposes of the Sales Order; and the Sales Order will be considered a two party agreement between BurnRate and such "Customer" under this Agreement.
14.2. Publicity; References. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Sales Order, BurnRate may refer to Customer as one of BurnRate's customers and use Customer's logo as part of such reference, provided that BurnRate complies with any trademark usage requirements notified to it by Customer. With Customer's prior written approval, including if so specified in the applicable Sales Order, (i) BurnRate may either (a) issue a press release announcing the relationship between BurnRate and Customer, or (b) submit a joint press release to Customer for Customer's approval, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed; and (ii) Customer will be a reference account for BurnRate, provided, however, that BurnRate will provide Customer with reasonable notice and obtain Customer's consent before scheduling any reference calls or site visits.
14.3. Compliance With Laws. Each party will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to it, including U.S. export control laws. Neither party will have any liability to the other for any non-performance of their obligations under this Agreement to the extent that the non-performance is mandated by applicable law. Each party represents and warrants to the other that neither it nor its Affiliates, nor any of its or their users, officers or directors, are persons, entities or organizations with whom the other party is prohibited from dealing (including provision of software, products or services) by virtue of any applicable law, regulation, or executive order, including US export control laws, and names appearing on the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control's Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List. BurnRate may access, modify and disclose Customer Data as and when required by applicable law; BurnRate will provide notice to Customer of modification or disclosure of Customer Data as soon as reasonably practicable in the circumstances, unless prohibited by applicable law.
14.4. U.S. Government Rights In The Services. BurnRate provides the Services for ultimate federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: Government technical data and software rights related to the Services include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement. 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 227.72023 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not conveyed under these terms, it must negotiate with BurnRate to determine if there are acceptable terms for transferring such rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically conveying such rights must be included in any applicable contract or agreement.
14.5. Equitable Relief. Each of Customer and BurnRate acknowledges that damages will be an inadequate remedy if the other violates the terms of this Agreement pertaining to protection of a party's Intellectual Property Rights, Confidential Information or Personal Information. Accordingly, each of them will have the right, in addition to any other rights each of them may have, to seek in any court of competent jurisdiction, temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief to restrain any breach, threatened breach, or otherwise to specifically enforce any of the obligations in this Agreement.
14.6. Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery. During any period in which Customer is subscribed to the Subscription Services, BurnRate will comply with its then current applicable Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans. BurnRate will test such plans at least once a year. BurnRate will provide Customer with summaries of such plans and test results upon written request. BurnRate may not modify such plans to provide materially less protection to Customer without Customer's prior written consent, which may not be unreasonably conditioned or withheld.
14.7. Force Majeure. If the performance of this Agreement is adversely restricted or if either party is unable to conform to any warranty or obligation by reason of any Force Majeure Event then, except with respect to obligations to pay any fees or expenses and to obligations under Section 14.6 above (Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery), the party affected, upon giving prompt written notice to the other party, will be excused from such performance on a day-to-day basis to the extent of such restriction (and the other party will likewise be excused from performance of its obligations on a day-to-day basis to the extent such party's obligations relate to the performance so restricted); provided, however, that the party so affected will use all commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or remove such causes of non-performance and both parties will proceed whenever such causes are removed or cease. "Force Majeure Event" means any failure or delay caused by or the result of causes beyond the reasonable control of a party or its service providers that could not have been avoided or corrected through the exercise of reasonable diligence, including acts of God, fire, flood, hurricane or other natural catastrophe, internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of the party's or its applicable infrastructure provider's facilities, denial of service attacks, state-sponsored malware or state-sponsored cyber-attacks, terrorist actions, laws, orders, regulations, directions or actions of governmental authorities having jurisdiction over the subject matter hereof, or any civil or military authority, national emergency, insurrection, riot or war, or other similar occurrence. If a party fails to perform its obligations as a result of such restriction for a period of more than 30 days, then the other party may terminate the affected Services without liability.
14.8. Service Enhancement Analysis. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Sales Order, BurnRate may use Customer's and its Users' Subscription Services usage history and statistics (collectively, "Enhancement Data") for BurnRate's internal analytical purposes related to its provision of Services, including to improve and enhance the Subscription Services and the BurnRate Platform. BurnRate may make information derived from its analysis of Enhancement Data publicly available, provided that the publicized information does not include any Enhancement Data that has not been aggregated and anonymized. For the purposes of this Agreement, aggregated and anonymized Enhancement Data means Enhancement Data that (i) has been aggregated with other data, and (ii) does not contain information that identifies Customer or its Users. For the sake of clarity, aggregated and anonymized data is not Confidential Information of Customer.
14.9. Captions and Headings. The captions and headings are inserted in this Agreement for convenience only, and will not be deemed to limit or describe the scope or intent of any provision of this Agreement.
14.10. Severability; Invalidity. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, such invalidity will not render invalid the remainder of this Agreement or the remainder of which such invalid provision is a part. If any provision of this Agreement is so broad as to be held unenforceable, such provision will be interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable.
14.11. Waiver. No waiver of or with respect to any provision of this Agreement, nor consent by a party to the breach of or departure from any provision of this Agreement, will in any event be binding on or effective against such party unless it be in writing and signed by such party, and then such waiver will be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given.
14.12. Third Party Beneficiaries. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, no provisions of this Agreement are intended nor will be interpreted to provide or create any third party beneficiary rights or any other rights of any kind in any other party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, BurnRate's suppliers of products and services delivered hereunder will enjoy the same disclaimers of warranty, limitations on liability and similar exculpatory provisions with respect to such products and services as does BurnRate.
14.13. Assignment. Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other, which will not be unreasonably withheld, provided, however that, subject to any restrictions specified in any applicable Sales Order, either party may assign all, but not some of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to any of its Affiliates, or to any entity into or with which it is merged, or that acquires all or substantially all of its assets, upon notice to the other party, but without requiring consent. Subject to the foregoing restriction on assignment, this Agreement will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
14.14. Notices. BurnRate will provide Customer with notices that affect BurnRate's customers generally (e.g., notices that relate to modifications or updates to, or the availability or interoperability of the BurnRate Platform) via e-mail or the BurnRate Platform dashboard or account center. BurnRate will provide Customer with any legal notices by pre-paid first class mail, air courier or e-mail to the mailing or e-mail address Customer provided BurnRate on the applicable Sales Order, or during Customer's registration for the Services, or to a substitute, updated mailing or e-mail address that Customer has provided to BurnRate for these purposes. Customer is responsible for keeping its mailing and e-mail address current with BurnRate. Except as otherwise specified in this Agreement, all notices to be given to BurnRate under this Agreement must be in writing and sent to BurnRate's USA headquarters by prepaid first class mail or air courier at the address specified on the first page of this Agreement (or, if none, at https://burnrate.io/), marked "Attention: Legal Department". Notices sent electronically will be deemed received within 1 business day of dispatch. Notices sent by prepaid first class mail will be deemed received within 5 business days of dispatch (however, notices sent by mail to addressees in a different country from that of the sender will be deemed received upon delivery). Notices sent by air courier, or personally delivered, will be deemed received upon delivery.
14.15. Entire Agreement; Amendments. This Agreement constitutes and embodies the entire agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous written, electronic or oral communications, representations, agreements or understandings between the parties with respect thereto. This Agreement may not be modified or amended except by a written instrument executed by both parties (subject to, if applicable, modifications made in accordance with the BurnRate Modification Policy Additional Terms of Service referenced in Section 12 above). With the exception of the Additional Terms of Service, any additional, supplementary or conflicting terms supplied by either party (whether in hard copy or electronic form), including those contained on or within any invoice, purchase order, or standard terms of purchase, or any click through license agreement, are specifically and expressly rejected by each party. In the event of any conflict or overlap between the provisions of Section 6 and Section 7, the provisions of Section 7 will prevail. In the event of any conflict between the provisions of this Agreement and any Sales Order, the provisions of this Agreement will prevail.
14.16. Counterparts. Sales Orders, this Agreement, and any amendments to this Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, which taken together will constitute a single agreement between the parties.
