4) Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may disclose Confidential Information received hereunder: (i) pursuant to a mandatory discovery request, disclosure requirement, subpoena, court order or other order of a court, tribunal or government agency received by a party, in each case, only after the party receiving same has given prompt written notice thereof to the Disclosing Party; or (ii) other than Customer Data received by Company, to the Receiving Party’s own legal counsel or independent accountant who have a need to know such Confidential Information. In each of (i) and (ii) of this paragraph, the Receiving Party shall (a) consult with the Disclosing Party prior to the disclosure of any Confidential Information, and (b) cooperate in good faith with the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party’s expense, with any reasonable effort to resist the production of Confidential Information, including obtaining a protective order or defending a motion to compel the production of Confidential Information.

Inquiries should be directed to Company’s customer support department.

2) Company may choose to bill through an invoice, in which case, full payment for invoices issued in any given month must be received by Company forty-five (45) days after the mailing date of the invoice. Unpaid amounts are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection and may result in immediate termination of Services. Customer shall be responsible for all taxes associated with Services other than U.S. taxes based on Company’s net income. Company may require Customer to maintain an active payment method on file with the Company, and by providing such active payment method, Customer authorizes Company to charge such payment method for Fees due hereunder in accordance with Company’s standard billing schedule.

1) Subject to earlier termination as provided below, this Agreement is for the Initial Service Term specified in the Order Form, and shall be automatically renewed for additional periods of the same duration as the Initial Service Term (collectively, the “Term”), unless either party requests termination prior to the end of the then-current term.

2) In addition to any other remedies it may have, either party may also terminate this Agreement upon ten (10) days’ notice (or without notice in the case of nonpayment), (a) if the other party materially breaches any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement (and, to the extent curable, fails to cure such breach within 30 days of the non-breaching party providing notice to the breaching party of such breach), (b) if the other party files a voluntary petition in bankruptcy or has an involuntary petition in bankruptcy filed against it, (c) if the other party is declared insolvent, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, appoints a receiver, conservator, or trustee to operate its business, or liquidates all or substantially all of its business assets, or the equivalent of any of the foregoing, or (d) in its performance hereunder, the other party recklessly or willfully violates applicable law.

3) Customer will pay in full for the Services provided in compliance with this Agreement up to and including the last day on which the Services are provided.

4) All sections of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, accrued rights to payment, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.

3) Promptly upon receipt by a person or entity entitled to indemnification under Sections 9.1 or 9.2 (for purposes of this Section 9.3, an “Indemnitee”) of notice of a third-party claim, the Indemnitee shall give written notice to the party from whom indemnification is sought pursuant hereto (for purposes of this Section 9.3, the “Indemnitor”). The Indemnitor will be required to defend such claim, and the Indemnitee will have the right to approve the counsel selected by Indemnitor to defend such claim. Furthermore, to assume the defense of such claim, the Indemnitor shall first have acknowledged in writing to the Indemnitee the Indemnitor’s obligation to indemnify the Indemnitee for the matter in accordance with this Agreement in accordance with Section 9.1 or 9.2 and provided reasonable proof of the Indemnitor’s ability to defend and pay the defense costs and claim amount. In the absence of such assurance in writing, the Indemnitee shall retain the right, but not the duty, to control the defense of such claim, without prejudicing in any way its right to recover damages in accordance with this Agreement. As soon as reasonably practicable, the Indemnitee will provide the Indemnitor with reasonable assistance and information required for the defense and/or settlement of the claim. If the Indemnitor fails to assume the defense of any third-party claim within the reasonable period of time, then the Indemnitee may assume the defense of any such third-party claim at the cost and expense of Indemnitor, subject to any limitations set forth in this Agreement.

On the written notice of either party to the other of the election to submit any dispute under this Agreement to mediation, each party shall designate their representatives and shall meet within ten (10) days after the service of the notice. The parties themselves shall then attempt to resolve the dispute within ten (10) days of meeting. Should the parties themselves be unable to agree on a resolution of the dispute, then the parties shall appoint a third party who shall be a competent and impartial party and who shall be acceptable to each party, to mediate the dispute. Any third-party mediator shall be qualified to evaluate the performance of both of the parties.

Company and Customer agree that from time to time, there may be conflicts, disputes and/or disagreements between them, arising out of or relating to the Services, or this Agreement (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Disputes”) which may not be resolved through mediation. Therefore, Company and Customer agree that all Disputes shall be resolved by binding arbitration or litigation at the sole discretion and choice of Company. If Company chooses arbitration, the arbitration proceeding shall proceed in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA.

4) If Company chooses arbitration or litigation, either may be commenced at any time prior to or after completion of the Services, provided that if arbitration or litigation is commenced prior to the completion of the Services, the obligations of the parties under the terms of this Agreement shall not be altered by reason of the arbitration or litigation being conducted.

5) The prevailing party in any arbitration or litigation relating to any Dispute shall be entitled to recover from the other party those reasonable attorney fees, costs and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the Dispute.

1) If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by either party except with the non-assigning party’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or in connection with a change of control of a party, in which case the successor in interest may assume the party’s interests hereunder; provided that, nothing herein shall prevent Company from employing such subconsultants and other subcontractors as Company may deem appropriate to assist in the performance of services under this Agreement. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all waivers and modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein.
