Effect of Termination. No termination will eliminate, diminish, or affect Customer’s obligation to pay all Fees due as of the date of termination. Upon Termination, Customer and its Authorized Users will have no right or ability to access the Services, and all grants of licenses to Customer from Daniola will terminate. Subject to up-to-date payment of all Fees due to Daniola, Customer shall be granted the ability to access and download its Customer Data for a period of thirty days from the date of termination, following which Daniola will be entitled to delete all Customer Data from the Services, without any liability to Customer.
Customer Data. Customer will ensure that Customer Data and any Authorized User’s data or use of Customer Data will not violate any policy or terms referenced in or incorporated into these Terms of Service or any Applicable Laws. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Daniola: (a) will not be responsible for the accuracy, completeness or adequacy of any Customer Data or the results generated from any Customer Data uploaded to the Services or the Daniola Platform and processed by the Services; (b) has no control over any Customer Data or the results threfrom; (c) does not purport to monitor Customer Data; and (d) shall not be responsible to back up or maintain any back up of the Customer Data or portion thereof.
License to Customer Data. Customer hereby grants to Daniola:
- a non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid, and worldwide license for the Term of these Terms of Service, and during any period following termination where Customer Data remains in the Services, to reproduce, distribute, and otherwise use and display the Customer Data and perform all acts with respect to the Customer Data as may be necessary for Daniola to provide the Services to Customer; and
- a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid worldwide license to reproduce, distribute, modify, and otherwise use and display Customer Data incorporated within the Aggregated Statistics.
Aggregated Statistics. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms of Service, Daniola may monitor Customer’s use of the Services, and collect and compile data and information related to Customer’s use of the Services to be used by Daniola in an aggregated and anonymized manner, including to compile statistical and performance information related to the provision and operation of the Services (“Aggregated Statistics“). As between Daniola and Customer, all right, title, and interest in Aggregated Statistics, and all Intellectual Property Rights therein, will exclusively belong to Daniola. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Daniola may compile Aggregated Statistics based on Customer Data input into the Services. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that Daniola may (i) copy, display, communicate, publish, distribute, use, disclose, and make Aggregated Statistics publicly available in compliance with Applicable Laws, provided that such Aggregated Statistics do not identify Customer, disclose personal information in contravention of Applicable Laws, or disclose Customer’s Confidential Information.
Feedback. If Customer or any of its Authorized Users, employees, contractors, or agents provides any suggestions, recommendations, or requests for changes to the Services, including without limitation, new features or functionality relating thereto, or any comments, questions, suggestions, or the like (“Feedback“), all such Feedback is and will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary to Customer. Customer will assign, and hereby does assign to Daniola on Customer’s behalf, and shall cause Customer’s Authorized Users, employees, contractors, and agents to assign, all right, title, and interest in all such Feedback. Daniola shall have the right, but not the obligation, to use, without any attribution or compensation whatsoever to Customer or any Third-Party Person, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other Intellectual Property Rights contained in such Feedback, for any purpose whatsoever, including incorporation into the Services.
Third-Party Vendors and Third-Party Products
Customer acknowledges and agrees that certain aspects, components, or portions of the Services are, or may be, comprised of, include, interface with, or otherwise require Third-Party Products and are provided to Daniola by Third-Party Vendors for license, sublicense, delivery, resale, or provision to Customer, or inclusion in the Services. Daniola has no control over the actions of such Third-Party Vendors, or the performance, nature, quality, availability, or suitability of their Third-Party Products. Accordingly, notwithstanding any term or condition of these Terms of Service, in no event will the rights of Customer to assert or pursue any Claim against Daniola with respect to any Third-Party Product exceed the obligations of the associated or applicable Third-Party Vendor (a) to fully compensate Customer directly, or (b) to fully indemnify, compensate, or reimburse Daniola for and against any such Claim by Customer.
Further, Daniola shall have the right to modify or terminate, without liability to Customer, any portion of the Services where the actions, errors, or omissions of any one or more Third-Party Vendors, or changes to the performance, nature, quality, availability, or suitability of the applicable Third-Party Products of such Third-Party Vendors make such portion of the Services no longer available without modification, or at all, or otherwise commercially unreasonable to provide. Daniola will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide Customer with notice of any termination or change pursuant to the foregoing, but Customer acknowledges and agrees that Daniola may not receive notice from such Third-Party Vendors, and therefore may not be able to provide notice to Customer. Where Customer receives such a notice from any such Third-Party Vendor, Customer will notify Vendor.
Service Levels. Subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service, Daniola will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available in accordance with any service levels posted from time to on the Platform or in the Services.
Support. These Terms of Service do not entitle Customer, or any of its Authorized Users, to any support for the Services.
Access to the Services and Daniola Platform. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Daniola will not responsible or liable with respect to any communication over the public Internet, or for the operations of any Third-Party network (including Daniola’s own service providers) or any such network’s failure to deliver communication or data to and from the Services, or the Daniola Platform on a timely basis.
Security Requirements. Both Parties shall implement and maintain commercially reasonable safeguards and controls to deter and for the detection, prevention and correction of any unauthorized intrusion, access to, or use of the Services, the Daniola Platform, Customer Data and the networks, systems, computers, and other devices of Customer. Customer acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding Daniola taking such measures, such measures may not prevent unauthorized electronic intruders to access the Daniola Platform or the Services, including Customer Data, through the Internet or through other forms of electronic communication. If such unauthorized electronic intruders are able to bypass Daniola’s security protocols and safeguards, such unauthorized electronic intruder may change, delete or otherwise corrupt the contents and data contained in the Daniola Platform, or in the Services, including the Customer Data. In any and all cases, Daniola shall not be liable to Customer, and hereby disclaims responsibility or liability, with respect to any action, destructive or otherwise, by any unauthorized electronic intruder.
Maintenance. From time to time, it will be necessary for Daniola to perform maintenance on the Services and the Daniola Platform. Such maintenance includes routine maintenance to ensure the continued provision of the Services through the continued operation of the Daniola Platform or upgrading, updating, or enhancing the Services and the Daniola Platform. Daniola shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to perform such maintenance at such times to minimize the impact of any downtime of the Services or the Daniola Platform to Customer, having regard to the geographic location and time zone of Daniola. To the extent Daniola is reasonably able, Daniola shall notify Customer in advance of any scheduled maintenance by posting a message in the Services or on the Daniola Platform of the scheduled maintenance time and the anticipated duration of such maintenance.
Changes. Daniola may, at any time, with or without notice to Customer: (a) make changes that are necessary to comply with applicable safety, security or other statutory requirements or orders from applicable Governmental Authorities; (b) supplement or make changes to the Documentation and to Daniola’s rules of operations, access procedures, security and privacy procedures and policies; and (c) change the components, type and location of the Services or the Daniola Platform.
Authentication IDs. Customer shall control and maintain the security of all Authentication IDs. Customer shall be solely responsible for all instructions, commitments and other actions or communications taken under any of its Authentication IDs. Customer shall promptly report to Daniola any errors or irregularities in the Service or the Daniola Platform or any unauthorized use of any part thereof and inform Daniola immediately if any Authentication ID becomes known to any Third-Party Person who is not authorized to possess such Authentication ID.
Daniola’s Audit Rights:
- Daniola reserves the right to monitor and audit Customer’s and its Authorized Users’ usage of the Services for the purpose of (among others) ensuring compliance with the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service. Any such audit may be carried out by Daniola, or a third party authorized by Daniola, at Daniola’s expense.
- If Daniola’s monitoring activities or its audit pursuant to the foregoing reveals that Customer’s or any Authorized User’s use of the Services is in contravention of these Terms of Service including any Applicable Laws, then Daniola may immediately declare a Suspension Event, and suspend and discontinue the Services to Customer or to that specific Authorized User, at Daniola’s sole discretion and without notice to Customer. Daniola shall notify Customer of such suspension as soon as reasonably possible, which notice shall set out the circumstances of the suspension. If Customer rectifies the situation to Daniola’s satisfaction, then Daniola will reinstate the Services. If Customer does not rectify the situation within ten days, then it shall be deemed an Event of Default, and Daniola shall be free to terminate these Terms of Service and pursue any remedies available to it.
- If Daniola’s audit reveals the use of the Services by Customer is in excess of any permitted level set by Daniola or (ii) any Authentication ID has been provided to a person who is not an Authorized User, or a Permitted User, or access to the Services was otherwise granted to a Person who is not an Authorized User, or the number of Authentication IDs granted by Customer exceeds any number of Authorized Users set by Daniola (where Daniola has set such number), Customer shall, without delay, pay Daniola the amount of Fees required for such level of use or number of Authorized Users based on Daniola’s then current list price for the Services. In case of unauthorized use of the Services, whether by Customer, an Authorized User, or another person, Daniola reserves the right to deny access to the Services to Customer or such Authorized User or other person.
Customer’s Regulatory Audits
- Daniola shall provide to such auditors (including external auditors and Customer’s internal audit staff or agents) as Customer may designate in writing, access to appropriate Daniola personnel and subcontractors, and to reasonable data, records and supporting documentation maintained by Daniola with respect to the Services, for the purpose of performing audits and inspections to enable Customer to satisfy applicable statutory and regulatory requirements or to certify compliance with Applicable Laws, and solely to the extent required to satisfy such requirements. The scope of such audits shall be limited solely to that which is necessary to enable Customer to satisfy its statutory or regulatory compliance obligations and may include, without limitation, and when applicable: (A) Daniola’s practices and procedures; (B) any controls as set out and which forms part of Daniola’s applicable security requirements and disaster recovery and back-up procedures.
- Customer and its auditors shall use commercially reasonable efforts to conduct such audits in a manner that will result in a minimum of inconvenience and disruption to Daniola’s business operations. Audits may be conducted only during normal business hours. Customer will provide Daniola with reasonable prior written notice of each audit, but with at least thirty (30) calendar days. Customer and its auditors will not be entitled to audit: (A) data or information of other customers or clients of Daniola; or (B) any Confidential Information of Daniola that is not necessary for purposes of the audit. Daniola will use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate in the audit, will to the extent applicable and reasonably practicable, convert any technical records maintained in an electronic format into a readily understandable format, or a format that can be readily understood without need for special equipment or specialized knowledge; will make available, on a timely basis, the information reasonably required to conduct the audit; and will assist the designated employees and agents of Customer or its auditors as reasonably necessary. To the maximum extent possible, audits shall be designed and conducted (in such manner and with such frequency) so as not to interfere with the provision of the Services. All information learned or exchanged in connection with the conduct of an audit, as well as the result of any audit, constitutes Daniola Confidential Information. Each Party shall maintain, during the Term and thereafter as required by Applicable Law, a complete and accurate set of files, records and books and accounts of their transactions hereunder.
- In addition to the audit referred to in the foregoing paragraph, Daniola acknowledges that Customer may be subject to statutory audits and other requests for information from taxation and other Governmental Authorities. Customer shall notify Daniola in a timely manner after being contacted by such Governmental Authority regarding such an audit. Daniola shall respond reasonably to any requests from such Governmental Authority regarding Customer according to Customer’s direction, subject to Daniola’s obligations under Applicable Law. Except as otherwise required by Applicable Law, if Customer is contacted by a Governmental Authority regarding such an audit, Daniola may provide information to such Governmental Authority only under the direction of Customer. Daniola shall provide such information in a timely manner either to Customer or, at Customer’s request, directly to the applicable Governmental Authority. As part of this audit process, Daniola may be required to answer questions from Governmental Authorities with respect to its processing of certain transactions for Customer. Customer shall send a representative to be present at all such discussions with such Governmental Authorities if and to the extent not prohibited by Applicable Law.
- Any Customer audits or provision of information by Daniola will be conducted at Customer’s expense, and Customer will pay to Daniola all Fees or other charges or expenses associated with, or incurred by Daniola, with respect to Customer audits or provision of information by Daniola.
Coordination of Regulatory Audits – Customer acknowledges that the audits set out in the foregoing are disruptive to the provision of the Services. In order to satisfy all audit requests from Customer and to Daniola’s other customers; Customer hereby agrees that Daniola may hire an independent third-party auditor to conduct an audit in satisfaction of the foregoing, and to provide the results of such audit to Customer in lieu of Customer conducting its own audit pursuant to the foregoing. Alternatively, and if consented to by Daniola, Customer shall coordinate with Daniola regarding the timing, scope and processes of any audit conducted by Customer hereunder to minimize any disruption to the Services and duplication of effort with any other similar audit.
Each Party acknowledges that all Confidential Information consists of confidential and proprietary information of the disclosing Party. Each Party shall, and shall cause its employees, agents and contractors and, in the case of Customer, its Authorized Users, to hold Confidential Information of the other Party in confidence, and shall use the same degree of care by instruction, agreement or otherwise, to maintain the confidentiality of the other Party’s Confidential Information that it uses to maintain the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information, but with no less than a reasonable degree of care commensurate with the nature and importance of such Confidential Information. Each Party agrees not to make use of Confidential Information other than for the exercise of rights or the performance of obligations under these Terms of Service, and not to release, disclose, communicate, or make the other Party’s Confidential Information available to any Third-Party Person other than employees, agents and contractors of the Party who reasonably need to know it in connection with the exercise of rights or the performance of obligations under these Terms of Service.
In the event that either Party receives a request to disclose all or any part of the Confidential Information under the terms of a valid and effective subpoena or order issued by a court of competent jurisdiction or by a Governmental Authority, such Party agrees to, unless prohibited by Applicable Laws: (i) immediately notify the other Party of the existence, terms and circumstances surrounding such a request; (ii) consult with the other Party on the advisability of taking legally available steps to resist or narrow such request; and (iii) if disclosure of such Confidential Information is required, exercise its best commercially reasonable efforts to obtain an order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded to such portion of the disclosed Confidential Information which the other Party so designates.
Each Party acknowledges and agrees that any unauthorized use or disclosure by it of any of the other Party’s Confidential Information, in whole or part, will cause irreparable damage to the disclosing Party, that monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy and that the amount of such damages would be extremely difficult to measure. The receiving Party agrees that the disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek temporary and permanent injunctive relief to restrain the receiving Party from any unauthorized disclosure or use. Nothing in these Terms of Service shall be construed as preventing the disclosing Party from pursuing any and all remedies available to it for a breach or threatened breach of a covenant related to its Confidential Information, including the recovery of monetary damages from the receiving Party.
Limited Warranty. Daniola warrants that it will perform and provide the Services on a commercially reasonable basis using a commercially reasonable level of care and skill. In the event of any breach of the foregoing express limited warranty, Customer’s only and exclusive remedy is to terminate these Terms of Service and its contractual relationship with Daniola, and cease using the Services.
EXCLUSION OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, “WHERE IS”, AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY, GUARANTEE, OR CONDITION WHATSOEVER. DANIOLA DOES NOT GIVE, AND CUSTOMER DOES NOT RECEIVE ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES, OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER ARISING FROM STATUTE, COMMON LAW, EQUITY, OR A COURSE OR CUSTOM OF TRADE, OR OTHERWISE IN RELATION TO THE SERVICES, THE DANIOLA PLATFORM, OR THE DOCUMENTATION, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABLE QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, COMPLIANCE WITH ANY DESCRIPTION, OR NONINFRINGEMENT, OR THAT THE SERVICES, INCLUDING THE DANIOLA PLATFORM, AND THE DOCUMENTATION, WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S NEEDS OR WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR USE AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME, OR WILL BE UNINTERUPTED, ACCURATE, TIMELY, OR ERROR FREE, OR WILL ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT, INCLUDING ANY ANTICIPATED REVENUE OR SAVING, OR BE SECURE, COMPLETE, FREE OF VIRUSES OR HARMFUL CODE, OR THAT ANY ERRORS OR DEFECTS CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL DANIOLA BE LIABLE FOR THE RESULTS OF USE OR MISUSE BY CUSTOMER OR ITS AUTHORIZED USERS OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY USE CONTRARY TO APPLICABLE LAW OR CONTRARY TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT WILL DANIOLA BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OF SERVICE UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, AGGRAVATED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. WITHOUT LIMITATION, DANIOLA SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER FOR (A) ECONOMIC LOSS, (B) INCREASED COSTS, (C) DIMINUTION IN VALUE, (D) LOST BUSINESS, PRODUCTION, REVENUES, OR PROFITS, (E) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION, (F) LOSS OF USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE DATA OR SERVICES, (G) DOWNTIME, (H) INTERRUPTION OF, OR DELAY OF CUSTOMER’S BUSINESS, (I) OR LOSS OF DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY; OR (J) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER DANIOLA WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE.
CAP ON DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL DANIOLA’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES OR THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID TO DANIOLA FOR OR IN CONSIDERATION OF THE SERVICES, OR OTHERWISE UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE IN THE THREE-MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
Infringement of Third-Party Rights. If a Claim for infringement, violation, or misappropriation of the Intellectual Property Rights of a Third-Party Person is brought or threatened as a result of Customer’s use of the Services, Daniola may, at its option and expense, either procure for Customer the right to continue using the Services, or modify the Services so that they become non-infringing without loss of functionality. If neither of the foregoing alternatives is reasonably available, Daniola may, at its sole discretion, discontinue the Services and/or terminate these Terms of Service, and refund to Customer any pre-paid and unused portion of the Fees paid by Customer in respect of use of the Services. The foregoing states the entire obligations of Daniola with respect to any infringement, violation, or misappropriation of Intellectual Property Rights of any Third-Party Person.
Force Majeure. Except for any obligation to make payments, any delay or failure of either Party to perform its obligations under these Terms of Services shall be excused if, and to the extent, that the delay or failure is caused by an event or occurrence beyond the reasonable control of the Party and without its fault or negligence, such as, by way of example and not by way of limitation, acts of God, action by any Governmental Authority (whether valid or invalid), fires, flood, wind storms, explosions, riots, natural disasters, wars, terrorist acts, sabotage, labour problems (including lock-outs, strikes and slowdowns), or court order or injunction; provided that written notice of delay (including anticipated duration of the delay) shall be given by the affected Party to the other Party promptly upon the affected Party first becoming aware of such event. In the event that the force majeure event lasts for seven days or longer, either Party shall have the option to terminate these Terms of Service upon written notice to the other without liability.
