1.1. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Kintent grants to Client and its Affiliates, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable (except as set forth in Section 8.8), worldwide license during the term of this Agreement, without the right to sublicense, solely for Client’s and such Affiliates’ internal business purposes and in accordance with the limitations set forth in the Order, (a) to access, use, perform, and digitally display the Software in accordance with the Documentation; and (b) to use and reproduce a reasonable number of copies of the Documentation solely to support Client’s use of the Software.

1.2. Except as expressly permitted herein, Client shall not (and shall not permit any third party, including Authorized Users), to:

a) license, sublicense, sell, resell, transfer, assign, distribute, or otherwise commercially exploit or make available to any third party the Software in any way;
b) modify or make derivative works based upon the Software;

f) intentionally interfere in any manner with the operation of the Software or attempt to access the Software through any unapproved interface; or
g) otherwise use the Software in any manner inconsistent with applicable law, the Documentation, or this Agreement.

c) be responsible for issuing, disseminating, and canceling passwords to Authorized Users on an ongoing basis, and for taking steps to maintain appropriate security regarding passwords, and
d) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Software, and notify Kintent promptly if it becomes aware of any such unauthorized access or use.

2. Fees and Payment

Short version: This Section describes the process by which Client will be billed for its monthly or annual subscription as well as detailing the penalties for failure to pay in a timely manner and the treatment of sales tax.

2.1. Fees: Client will pay Kintent the license fees set forth in the Order (“License Fees”). Kintent or its partners may provide consulting or other professional services (the “Professional Services”) to Client upon request and agreement of the parties. The fees for any Professional Services (“Professional Service Fees”, and together with the License Fees, the “Fees”) will be priced in an Order or separate Professional Services Agreement. All Fees will be due and payable within 30 days of receipt of the applicable invoice issued by Kintent. All Fees are non-cancellable and non-refundable. Client is responsible for maintaining complete and accurate billing and contact information within the Service. Unless Kintent has agreed to an alternative payment arrangement, Client must provide Kintent with a valid credit card number and any other payment information required for Kintent to process Client’s payment. By submitting that information to Kintent or a third party credit card processor, Client agrees that it has authorized Kintent and/or the processor to charge the credit card for all Fees, including monthly fees and any overages. Kintent or a third party credit card processor will automatically bill the credit card provided by Client or other form of payment submitted as part of the order process for the Fees and Client hereby consents to such automatic billing. Kintent reserves the right to change the License Fees in its sole discretion; provided, however, that Kintent shall provide three months prior written notice to Client and the revised License Fees shall not be effective until the Client’s renewal term following the effective date of the new License Fees.

2.2. Late Fee: Payments will accrue interest at the rate of one and a half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. If Client’s account is 15 days or more overdue, Kintent may, in addition to any of its other rights or remedies, upon written notice, suspend Customer’s access to the Service until such amounts are paid in full. If such failure to pay has not been cured within 30 days of the due date, then upon written notice, Kintent may terminate this Agreement and any or all outstanding Orders in accordance with Section 3 below.

2.3. Sales & Use Taxes: All fees payable to Kintent by Client hereunder are exclusive of any sales taxes, use taxes, value added taxes and similar taxes applicable to the provision of Services or the license of the Software, specifically excluding any taxes based on Kintent’s net income. If Kintent incurs or is required to collect or pay any federal, state or local taxes based on the Software, Services or other deliverables, such taxes will be billed to and paid by Client. Client must provide Kintent with accurate information to help it to determine whether any such taxes are due.

3. Term & Termination

Short version: This section details the term of the Agreement and each party’s right to terminate the Agreement.

3.1. Term: This Agreement will continue during the period set forth on the Order (“Initial Term”). Thereafter, this Agreement (including each Order hereunder) will automatically renew for additional consecutive terms equal in length to the Initial Term (each, a “Renewal Term,” together with the Initial Term, the “Term”), unless either party provides to the other notice of its intention not to renew this Agreement. If you do not wish your Account subscription to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please contact Kintent at support@kintent.com.

3.2. Breach: Either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party commits a material breach of this Agreement and fails to remedy the breach within thirty (30) days after receiving written notice of the breach from the non-breaching party, describing the breach in reasonable detail.

3.3. Effects of Termination: Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement,

a) the licenses granted hereunder and Client’s access to the Services will terminate; and
b) each party will continue to comply with its confidentiality obligations under Section 4.
c) Kintent shall have the right to delete any and all Client Data immediately upon expiration or termination of this Agreement and shall, at the request of the Client, delete any Confidential Information of the Client to the extent permitted by law.

4. Confidentiality and Proprietary Rights

Short version: This section details each party’s obligations with respect to the other party’s confidential information. These obligations are mutual, and we expect the same level of care with respect to our confidential information you expect from us. Further explanation of our treatment of information provided by you may be found in our Privacy Policy

4.1. Confidential Information: “Confidential Information” means all confidential information disclosed by Kintent or Client (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), that is marked in writing as “confidential” or by a similar designation or that otherwise should be considered confidential information based on the nature of the information and circumstances of disclosure. For clarity, Confidential Information also includes Client’s data, and Kintent’s pricing, the non-public parts of the Service, its user interface, design and layout, and any related non-public specifications, documentation or technical information that Kintent provides to Client and/or Authorized Users. Confidential Information will not include any information that

a) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party;
b) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party;
c) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; or
d) was independently developed by the Receiving Party.

4.2. Protection of 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 in no event less than reasonable care). The Receiving Party may only use Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement. Except as expressly authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, the Receiving Party will limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its Affiliates’ employees, contractors or agents who need such access to perform obligations under this Agreement and who are bound to terms as least as restrictive as those in this Agreement. Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement to any third party (other than its Affiliates and their legal counsel and accountants) without the other party’s prior written consent.

4.3. Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such 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. The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information to enforce the terms of this Agreement and to respond to claims that any Data violates the rights of third parties.

4.4. Ownership. The Services (including the Software and Documentation), and all worldwide Intellectual Property Rights in each of the foregoing, are the exclusive property of Kintent and its suppliers. All rights in and to the Services (including the Software and Documentation) not expressly granted to Client in this Agreement are reserved by Kintent and its suppliers. Except as expressly set forth herein, no express or implied license or right of any kind is granted to Client regarding the Services (including the Software and Documentation), or any part thereof, including any right to obtain possession of any source code, data or other technical material related to the Software.

5. WARRANTY

Short version: This section outlines the warranties granted, and those that are not granted, with respect to the Software.

5.1. Limited Warranty: Kintent warrants to Client that the Software will operate in accordance with the Documentation. The foregoing warranty shall not apply to performance issues of the Software (a) caused by factors outside of Kintent’s reasonable control; (b) that result from any actions or inactions of Client or any third parties; or (c) that result from Client’s data structures, operating environment, or equipment. If the Software does not perform as warranted, Kintent will, at its own expense, promptly correct any material problem, which correction will constitute Client’s sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of this warranty. If, after making reasonable efforts to do so, Kintent cannot provide the correction as described above, either party will be entitled to terminate the Order pursuant to Section 3, and Client will be entitled to a refund of any pre-paid fees for the period after the date of termination.

5.2. DISCLAIMERS: NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, KINTENT DOES NOT WARRANT THAT CLIENT’S USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. OTHER THAN THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES CONTAINED IN SECTION 5.1, KINTENT MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AND HEREBY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE SERVICES AND THE SOFTWARE, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES AS TO MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SYSTEM AVAILABILITY OR RELIABILITY, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE. NO REPRESENTATION OR STATEMENT WILL BE BINDING UPON COMPANY AS A WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE UNLESS EXPRESSLY CONTAINED OR REFERENCED IN AN ORDER OR THIS AGREEMENT. CLIENT FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THERE ARE RISKS INHERENT IN INTERNET CONNECTIVITY THAT COULD RESULT IN THE LOSS OF CLIENT DATA OR CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. CLIENT ASSUMES SOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR RESULTS OBTAINED FROM ITS AUTHORIZED USERS’ USE OF THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES OR AND FOR CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM SUCH USE.

6. Indemnification

Short version: This section outlines the indemnification obligations of both Kintent and the Client.

6.1. By Kintent: Kintent agrees to defend Client, its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors and employees (“Client Indemnitees”) against any third party suits alleging that the Services as delivered by Kintent infringes or violates any third party intellectual property rights, and to indemnify and hold harmless such Client Indemnitees for all penalties, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, consultants’ fees, court costs, damages finally awarded or costs of settlements entered into with respect to the third party claim. Kintent has no liability if the alleged infringement or violation is based on: (i) a modification of the Software by Client or Client’s agent without Kintent’s authorization, (ii) Client’s use of the Software in a manner contrary to the written instructions given to it by Kintent, or (iii) the use of the Software after notice of the alleged or actual infringement from Kintent or any appropriate authority. In the event of such third-party claim, Kintent may, at its option, modify the Software to avoid the claim while maintaining substantially similar functionality or obtain a license to resolve the claim. In the event Kintent is unable to achieve either of the foregoing on reasonable commercial terms, Kintent may terminate the Order and provide Client a pro rata refund of any prepaid but unearned fees.

6.2. By Client: Client agrees to defend Kintent and its officers, directors and employees (“Kintent Indemnitees”) against any third-party claims arising from or in connection with (i) use of the Services by Client or any Authorized User in violation of this Agreement; (ii) Client Data uploaded or transmitted to the Service by Client or an Authorized User the transmission, storage or use of Client Data (whether based on a theory of infringement, unlawful use, violation of privacy or otherwise), and to indemnify and hold harmless such Kintent Indemnitees for all penalties, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, consultants’ fees, court costs, damages finally awarded or costs of settlements entered into with respect to the third party claim.

6.3. Procedure: The indemnifying party’s obligations under Sections 6.1 and 6.2 shall be subject to the following:

(a) the indemnifying party is given prompt notice of such claim by the party seeking indemnification, provided that failure to give prompt notice shall relieve the indemnifying party of its indemnification obligation only to the extent that the delay materially prejudices the indemnifying party’s ability to defend against the claim(s);
(b) each party provides reasonable cooperation to the other in the defense and settlement of such claim; and
(c) the indemnifying party is given sole authority to defend or settle the claim, as long as no settlement requires the indemnified party to pay any amount or admit liability or wrongdoing.

7. Limitation of Liability

Short version: This section sets forth the limitations on potential liabilities arising under the Agreement. The limitations apply equally to each party. The limitations do not apply to either party’s indemnification obligations.

7.1. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR REVENUE, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND WHETHER ANY CLAIM FOR RECOVERY IS BASED ON THEORIES OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE OR TORT (INCLUDING STRICT LIABILITY). THE FOREGOING EXCLUSION WILL NOT REDUCE EITHER PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 6 OR A PARTY’S BREACH OF ITS CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS HEREIN.

7.2. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES PAID OR PAYABLE BY CLIENT IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE CLAIM, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF CLAIM OR ACTION. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN KINTENT AND CLIENT AND THAT KINTENT’S PRICING REFLECTS THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK AND THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SPECIFIED HEREIN. THE FOREGOING EXCLUSION WILL NOT APPLY TO EITHER PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 6 OR A PARTY’S BREACH OF ITS CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS HEREIN.

8. Data

Short version: This section acknowledges that Client is the exclusive owner of all Client Data but that Kintent may use such data (1) to provide the services and (2) in aggregate, de-identified form to improve the Services. It also details your obligations with respect to your data and the security practices of Kintent.

8.1. License; Ownership. Client grants Kintent a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free and fully paid license (a) to use the Client Data as necessary for purposes of providing the Services and enabling the operation of the Software, and (b) to use the Client trademarks, service marks, and logos as required to provide the Services. The Client Data hosted by Kintent as part of the Services, and all worldwide Intellectual Property Rights therein, is, as between Kintent and Client, the exclusive property of Client. All rights in and to the Client Data not expressly granted to Kintent in this Agreement are reserved by Client. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Kintent shall have the right to collect and analyze aggregated data and other information relating to the provision, use, and performance of various aspects of the Services and related systems and technologies (“Aggregated Data”), and Kintent shall be free (during and after the term of this Agreement) to (i) use Aggregated Data to improve and enhance the Services and for other development, diagnostic, and corrective purposes in connection with the Services and any other Kintent offerings, and (ii) disclose Aggregated Data sole in aggregate or other de-identified form in connection with its business, provided that the Aggregated Data cannot be used in any way to identify Client, the Client Data or any of its Authorized Users.

8.2. Client Warranty. Client represents and warrants that any Client Data hosted by Kintent as part of the Services shall not (a) infringe or misappropriate any Intellectual Property Rights of any person; (b) be deceptive, defamatory, obscene, or unlawful; (c) contain any viruses, worms or other malicious computer programming codes intended to damage Kintent’s systems or data; or (d) otherwise violate the rights of any person. Client agrees that any use of the Services contrary to or in violation of the representations and warranties of Client in this section constitutes unauthorized and improper use of the Services.

8.3. Client Responsibilities for Data and Security. Client and its Authorized Users shall have access to the Client Data and shall be responsible for all changes to and/or deletions of Client Data and the security of all passwords and other Access Protocols required in order to access the Software. Client shall have the ability to export Client Data out of the Software. Kintent does back up Client Data regularly, but Client is encouraged to make its own back-ups of the Client Data. Client shall have the sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, and appropriateness of all Client Data.

8.4. Kintent Responsibilities for Data and Security. Kintent shall

a) maintain and enforce an information security program including safety, physical and technical security policies and procedures with respect to its processing of Client Data that meets or exceeds industry practices and standards applicable to the protection of data similar to Client Data,
b) provide technical and organizational safeguards against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized access to or use, destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, transfer, or processing of Client Data consistent with industry practice and standards, and designed to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risks presented by the processing of data similar to Client Data,
c) periodically test its systems for potential areas where security could be breached and monitor for suspected breaches,
d) promptly report to Client any breach of security or unauthorized access to Client Data that Kintent detects or becomes aware of,
e) use diligent efforts to remedy any breach of security or unauthorized access to Client Data in a timely manner, and
f) refrain from notifying, for or on behalf of Client (or any Authorized User), any regulatory authority, consumer or other person of any breach of security or unauthorized access to Client Data unless Client explicitly requests in writing that Kintent do so.
