  1. USE OF SERVICES AND CONTENT

 

3.1 Subscriptions. Unless otherwise provided in the applicable Order Form or Documentation, (a) Purchased Services and access to Content are purchased as subscriptions for the term stated in the applicable Order Form or in the applicable online purchasing portal, (b) subscriptions for Purchased Services may be added during a subscription term at the same pricing as the underlying subscription pricing, prorated for the portion of that subscription term remaining at the time the subscriptions are added, and (c) any added subscriptions will terminate on the same date as the underlying subscriptions. Customer agrees that its purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by KaaS regarding future functionality or features. 

 

3.2 Usage Limits. Services and Content are subject to usage limits specified in Order Forms and Documentation. If Customer exceeds a contractual usage limit, KaaS may work with Customer to seek to reduce Customer’s usage so that it conforms to that limit. If, notwithstanding KaaS’s efforts, Customer is unable or unwilling to abide by a contractual usage limit, Customer will execute an Order Form for additional quantities of the applicable Services or Content promptly upon KaaS’s request, and/or pay any invoice for excess usage in accordance with the “Invoicing and Payment” section below. 

 

3.3 Customer Responsibilities. Customer will (a) be responsible for Users’ compliance with this Agreement, Documentation and Order Forms, (b) be responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of Customer Data, the means by which Customer acquired Customer Data, Customer’s use of Customer Data with the Services, and the interoperation of any Non-KaaS Applications with which Customer uses Services or Content, (c) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of Services and Content, and notify KaaS promptly of any such unauthorized access or use, (d) use Services and Content only in accordance with this Agreement, Documentation, the Acceptable Use and External Facing Services Policy in the Documentation, Order Forms and applicable laws and government regulations, and (e) comply with terms of service of any Non-KaaS Applications with which Customer uses Services or Content. Any use of the Services in breach of the foregoing by Customer or Users that in KaaS’s judgment threatens the security, integrity or availability of KaaS’s services, may result in KaaS’s immediate suspension of the Services, however KaaS will use commercially reasonable efforts under the circumstances to provide Customer with notice and an opportunity to remedy such violation or threat prior to any such suspension. 

 

3.4 Usage Restrictions. Customer will not (a) make any Service or Content available to anyone other than Customer or Users, or use any Service or Content for the benefit of anyone other than Customer or its Affiliates, unless expressly stated otherwise in an Order Form or the Documentation, (b) sell, resell, license, sublicense, distribute, make available, rent or lease any Service or Content, or include any Service or Content in a service bureau or outsourcing offering, (c) use a Service or Non-KaaS Application to store or transmit infringing, libelous, or otherwise unlawful or tortious material, or to store or transmit material in violation of third-party privacy rights, (d) use a Service or Non-KaaS Application to store or transmit Malicious Code, (e) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of any Service or third-party data contained therein, (f) attempt to gain unauthorized access to any Service or Content or its related systems or networks, (g) permit direct or indirect access to or use of any Services or Content in a way that circumvents a contractual usage limit, or use any Services to access or use any of KaaS intellectual property except as permitted under this Agreement, an Order Form, or the Documentation, (h) modify, copy, or create derivative works based on a Service or any part, feature, function or user interface thereof, (i) copy Content except as permitted herein or in an Order Form or the Documentation, (j) frame or mirror any part of any Service or Content, other than framing on Customer’s own intranets or otherwise for its own internal business purposes or as permitted in the Documentation, (k) except to the extent permitted by applicable law, disassemble, reverse engineer, or decompile a Service or Content or access it to (1) build a competitive product or service, (2) build a product or service using similar ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Service, (3) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Service, or (4) determine whether the Services are within the scope of any patent. For the avoidance of doubt, the right to use the Service may be exercised by Customer’s agents, representatives, contractors and/or customers that are not competitors of KaaS; provided, that (y) Customer requires such third parties to execute a written agreement with Customer that is at least as protective of the Service as this Agreement and which does not grant any greater rights than those granted to Customer herein and includes all restrictions set forth herein and (z) Customer shall be responsible for any breach of this Agreement by any such third party. 

 

3.5 Removal of Content and Non-KAAS Applications. If Customer receives notice that Content or a Non-KaaS Application must be removed, modified and/or disabled to avoid violating applicable law, third-party rights, or the Acceptable Use and External Facing Services Policy, Customer will promptly do so. If Customer does not take required action in accordance with the above, or if in KaaS’s judgment continued violation is likely to reoccur, KaaS may disable the applicable Content, Service and/or Non-KaaS Application. If requested by KaaS, Customer shall confirm such deletion and discontinuance of use in writing and KaaS shall be authorized to provide a copy of such confirmation to any such third party claimant or governmental authority, as applicable. In addition, if KaaS is required by any third-party rights holder to remove Content, or receives information that Content provided to Customer may violate applicable law or third-party rights, KaaS may discontinue Customer’s access to Content through the Services. 

 

  1. NON-KAAS PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

 

4.1 Non-KaaS Products and Services. KaaS or third parties may make available (for example, through a Marketplace or otherwise) third-party products or services, including, for example, Non-KaaS Applications and implementation and other consulting services. Any acquisition by Customer of such products or services, and any exchange of data between Customer and any Non-KaaS provider, product or service is solely between Customer and the applicable Non-KaaS provider. KaaS does not warrant or support Non-KaaS Applications or other Non-KaaS products or services, whether or not they are designated by KaaS as “certified” or otherwise, unless expressly provided otherwise in an Order Form. KaaS is not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Data resulting from access by such Non-KaaS Application or its provider. 

 

4.2 Integration with Non-KaaS Applications. The Services may contain features designed to interoperate with Non-KaaS Applications. KaaS cannot guarantee the continued availability of such Service features, and may cease providing them without entitling Customer to any refund, credit, or other compensation, if for example and without limitation, the provider of a Non-KaaS Application ceases to make the Non-KaaS Application available for interoperation with the corresponding Service features in a manner acceptable to KaaS. 

 

  1. FEES AND PAYMENT

 

5.1 Fees. Customer will pay all fees specified in Order Forms. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are based on Services and Content subscriptions purchased and not actual usage, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term. 

 

5.2 Invoicing and Payment. Customer will provide KaaS with valid and updated credit card information, or with a valid purchase order or alternative document reasonably acceptable to KaaS. If Customer provides credit card information to KaaS, Customer authorizes KaaS to charge such credit card for all Purchased Services listed in the Order Form for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) as set forth in the “Term of Purchased Subscriptions” section below. Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, KaaS will invoice Customer in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, invoiced fees are due net 30 days from the invoice date and shall be paid by electronic payment. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to KaaS and notifying KaaS of any changes to such information. 

 

5.3 Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by KaaS by the due date, then without limiting KaaS’s rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) KaaS may condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in the “Invoicing and Payment” section above. 

 

5.4 Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any charge owing by Customer under this or any other agreement for services is 30 days or more overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts Customer has authorized KaaS to charge to Customer’s credit card), KaaS may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Services until such amounts are paid in full, provided that, other than for customers paying by credit card or direct debit whose payment has been declined, KaaS will give Customer at least 10 days’ prior notice that its account is overdue, in accordance with the “Manner of Giving Notice” section below for billing notices, before suspending services to Customer. 

 

5.5 Payment Disputes. KaaS will not exercise its rights under the “Overdue Charges” or “Suspension of Service and Acceleration” section above if Customer is disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute. 

 

5.6 Taxes. KaaS’s fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases hereunder. If KaaS has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this section, KaaS will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides KaaS with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, KaaS is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees. 

 

  1. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS AND LICENSES

 

6.1 Reservation of Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, KaaS, its Affiliates, its licensors and Content Providers reserve all of their right, title and interest in and to the Services and Content, including all of their related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to Customer hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein. 

 

6.2 Access to and Use of Content. Customer has the right to access and use applicable Content subject to the terms of applicable Order Forms, this Agreement and the Documentation. 

 

6.3 License by Customer to KaaS. Customer grants KaaS, its Affiliates and applicable contractors a worldwide, limited-term license to host, copy, use, transmit, and display any Non-KaaS Applications and program code created by or for Customer using a Service or for use by Customer with the Services, and Customer Data, each as appropriate for KaaS to provide and ensure proper operation of the Services and associated systems in accordance with this Agreement. If Customer chooses to use a Non-KaaS Application with a Service, Customer grants KaaS permission to allow the Non-KaaS Application and its provider to access Customer Data and information about Customer’s usage of the Non-KaaS Application as appropriate for the interoperation of that Non-KaaS Application with the Service. Subject to the limited licenses granted herein, KaaS acquires no right, title or interest from Customer or its licensors under this Agreement in or to any Customer Data, Non-KaaS Application or such program code. Customer acknowledges that KaaS will collect and use certain aggregate data as part of providing, analyzing or improving the Service, or any other KaaS product or service, from time to time, and for purposes of statistical analysis and marketing metrics. 

 

6.4 License by Customer to Use Feedback. Customer grants to KaaS and its Affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into its services any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by Customer or Users relating to the operation of KaaS’s or its Affiliates’ services. 

 

6.5 Federal Government End Use Provisions. KaaS provides the Services, including related software and technology, for ultimate federal government end use in accordance with the following: The Services consist of “commercial items,” as defined at FAR 2.101. In accordance with FAR 12.211-12.212 and DFARS 227.7102-4 and 227.7202-4, as applicable, the rights of the U.S. Government to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose commercial computer software, commercial computer software documentation, and technical data furnished in connection with the Services shall be as provided in this Agreement, except that, for U.S. Department of Defense end users, technical data customarily provided to the public is furnished in accordance with DFARS 252.227-7015. If a government agency needs additional rights, it must negotiate a mutually acceptable written addendum to this Agreement specifically granting those rights. 

 

  1. CONFIDENTIALITY

 

7.1 Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Confidential Information of Customer includes Customer Data; Confidential Information of KaaS includes the Services and Content, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement and all Order Forms (including pricing). Confidential Information of each party includes business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party. However, Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (ii) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (iii) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party. For the avoidance of doubt, the non-disclosure obligations set forth in this “Confidentiality” section apply to Confidential Information exchanged between the parties in connection with the evaluation of additional KaaS services. 

 

7.2 Protection of Confidential Information. As between the parties, each party retains all ownership rights in and to its Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care) to (i) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its Affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections not materially less protective of the Confidential Information than those herein. Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement or any Order Form to any third party other than its Affiliates, legal counsel and accountants without the other party’s prior written consent, provided that a party that makes any such disclosure to its Affiliate, legal counsel or accountants will remain responsible for such Affiliate’s, legal counsel’s or accountant’s compliance with this “Confidentiality” section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, KaaS may disclose the terms of this Agreement and any applicable Order Form to a subcontractor or Non-KaaS Application Provider to the extent necessary to perform KaaS’s obligations under this Agreement, under terms of confidentiality materially as protective as set forth herein. 

 

7.3 Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information. 

 

  1. REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AND DISCLAIMERS

 

8.1 Representations. Each party represents that it has validly entered into this Agreement and has the legal power to do so. 

 

8.2 KaaS Warranties. KaaS warrants that during an applicable subscription term (a) this Agreement, the Order Forms and the Documentation will accurately describe the applicable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Data, (b) KaaS will not materially decrease the overall security of the Services, (c) the Services will perform materially in accordance with the applicable Documentation, and (d) subject to the “Integration with Non-KaaS Applications” section above, KaaS will not materially decrease the overall functionality of the Services. For any breach of a warranty above, Customer’s exclusive remedies are those described in the “Termination” and “Refund or Payment upon Termination” sections below. 

 

8.3 Disclaimers. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, NEITHER PARTY MAKES ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND EACH PARTY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. CONTENT AND BETA SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” AND AS AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVE OF ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER. 

 

  1. MUTUAL INDEMNIFICATION

 

9.1 Indemnification by KaaS. KaaS will defend Customer against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Customer by a third party alleging that any Purchased Service infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights (a “Claim Against Customer ”), and will indemnify Customer from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Customer as a result of, or for amounts paid by Customer under a settlement approved by KaaS in writing of, a Claim Against Customer, provided Customer (a) promptly gives KaaS written notice of the Claim Against Customer, (b) gives KaaS sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Customer (except that KaaS may not settle any Claim Against Customer unless it unconditionally releases Customer of all liability), and (c) gives KaaS all reasonable assistance, at KaaS’s expense. If KaaS receives information about an infringement or misappropriation claim related to a Service, KaaS may in its discretion and at no cost to Customer (i) modify the Services so that they are no longer claimed to infringe or misappropriate, without breaching KaaS’s warranties under “KaaS Warranties” above, (ii) obtain a license for Customer’s continued use of that Service in accordance with this Agreement, or (iii) terminate Customer’s subscriptions for that Service upon 30 days’ written notice and refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of the terminated subscriptions. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if (1) the allegation does not state with specificity that the Services are the basis of the Claim Against Customer; (2) a Claim Against Customer arises from the use or combination of the Services or any part thereof with software, hardware, data, or processes not provided by KaaS, if the Services or use thereof would not infringe without such combination; (3) a Claim Against Customer arises from Services under an Order Form for which there is no charge; or (4) a Claim against Customer arises from Content, a Non-KaaS Application or Customer’s breach of this Agreement, the Documentation or applicable Order Forms. 

 

9.2 Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend KaaS and its Affiliates against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against KaaS by a third party alleging (a) that any Customer Data or Customer’s use of Customer Data with the Services, (b) a Non-KaaS Application provided by Customer, or (c) the combination of a Non-KaaS Application provided by Customer and used with the Services, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights, or arising from Customer’s use of the Services or Content in an unlawful manner or in violation of the Agreement, the Documentation, or Order Form (each a “Claim Against KaaS ”), and will indemnify KaaS from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against KaaS as a result of, or for any amounts paid by KaaS under a settlement approved by Customer in writing of, a Claim Against KaaS, provided KaaS (a) promptly gives Customer written notice of the Claim Against KaaS, (b) gives Customer sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against KaaS (except that Customer may not settle any Claim Against KaaS unless it unconditionally releases KaaS of all liability), and (c) gives Customer all reasonable assistance, at Customer’s expense. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if a Claim Against KaaS arises from KaaS’s breach of this Agreement, the Documentation or applicable Order Forms. 

 

9.3 Exclusive Remedy. This “Mutual Indemnification” section states the indemnifying party’s sole liability to, and the indemnified party’s exclusive remedy against, the other party for any third party claim described in this section.
