Each Party agrees to use the other Party’s Confidential Information solely for the purposes of this Agreement and to refrain from disclosing the other Party’s Confidential Information to any third party, unless disclosure is: (i) necessary and permitted in connection with the receiving party’s performance of its obligations or exercise of its rights under this Agreement or any other agreement between the Parties; (ii) required by law, provided that the receiving party uses reasonable efforts to give the disclosing party reasonable notice so as to afford the disclosing party an opportunity to intervene and seek appropriate relief for the protection of its Confidential Information from use or disclosure; or (iii) made with the consent of the disclosing party. “Confidential Information” includes the terms of this Agreement and any information that is treated or marked as confidential by either Party, including trade secrets, technology, business strategies, and information pertaining to customers, pricing, marketing, know-how, processes, products, and services.

Fees shall be due by the monthly date that the recurring billing commences as set forth in the Order Form(s) (with no pro-rating).

Unpaid Fees are subject to a charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection, including attorney’s fees and court costs, and any credit card charges or chargebacks. Customer agrees that it will not seek any chargebacks, except in cases involving third-party theft or fraud (e.g., if a charge was fraudulently authorized by someone who stole Customer’s credit card). It shall be a material breach of this Agreement, resulting in immediate termination of this Agreement and the Services, as well as collection efforts, without any further notice to Customer if: (i) Customer fails to timely pay all Fees; or (ii) Customer expressly states that it will not timely pay all Fees.
(b) Service Credits. If the Services are unavailable for any reason, including planned or unplanned downtime, Customer’s sole remedy shall be to obtain “Service Credits,” which shall be 5% of Fees paid during the last 30 days for each day that the Services are unavailable, provided that: (i) Customer notified Company in writing within 24 hours of the start of the unavailability; (ii) the unavailability did not stem from Customer’s actions or termination of this Agreement; (iii) the unavailability lasted more than 3 consecutive hours; (iv) the maximum Service Credits shall be for 7 days for any 1 calendar month; and (v) the Service Credits may only be applied in the same month, or the immediate next month, of the unavailability.

In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, including to recover outstanding Fees, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover reasonable costs and attorney’s fees.
5. Term and Termination
