8.1. The Company will defend and indemnify Customer from and against any and all losses, costs, damages, liabilities or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) (“Losses”) incurred or arising from any claim by a third party alleging that Customer’s use of the Products or their Documentation (“Covered IP”) infringes a United States patent, copyright or trademark. This indemnity will not apply to claims arising from (a) use of the Covered IP outside the scope of the license granted to Customer; (b) use of the Covered IP in combination with the products of third parties (other than those approved in writing by the Company or set forth in the Specifications); (c) modification of the Covered IP not performed or provided by the Company, if the infringement would not have occurred but for such use, combination or modification; or (d) the Company’s compliance with Customer’s design specifications, if the infringement would not have occurred but for the Company’s implementation of such specifications.
8.2. If a third-party infringement claim results in an injunction against Customer’s use of any component of the Covered IP, or if the Company reasonably anticipates such an injunction, the Company will procure for Customer the right to continue using the component, replace the component or modify the component to avoid the claim while retaining substantially the same functionality.
8.3. Each Party shall indemnify the other Party from third-party claims for injury, death or property damage based on the other Party’s alleged gross negligence or willful misconduct.

This defense and indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and Customer’s use of the Software.
8.5. The indemnifying Party’s indemnification obligations under this Section 8 as to a third- party claim are conditioned upon the indemnified Party’s (a) giving prompt notice of any such claim to the indemnifying Party; (b) granting sole control of the investigation, defense and settlement of each such claim or action to the indemnifying Party (except that the indemnified Party’s prior written approval is required for any settlement that requires any payment by, imposes any material obligation on, or results in any ongoing material liability to, the indemnified Party); and (c) providing reasonable cooperation to the indemnifying Party and, at the indemnifying Party’s request and expense, assistance in the defense or settlement of the claim.

IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION AND EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. EACH OF THE PARTIES SHALL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES RELATING TO ITS PERFORMANCE OR FAILURE TO PERFORM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THE LIABILITY OF A PARTY TO THE OTHER PARTY, WHETHER BASED ON AN ACTION OR CLAIM IN CONTRACT, EQUITY, NEGLIGENCE, TORT OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY EVENT, ACT OR OMISSION SHALL NOT EXCEED AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE AMOUNT PAID TO GRAYMETA UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE THREE MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE MOST RECENT EVENT.

Neither Party will use or disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information without the other Party’s prior written consent. “Confidential Information” means any information, whether disclosed orally, in writing, electronically, visually or otherwise by one Party to the other in the course of this Agreement, including, in the case of the Company, the source code of the GrayMeta Software and, in the case of either Party, all other information relating to such Party’s financial condition, operations, business or customers. Each Party will use the same degree of care as it exercises toward its own Confidential Information in protecting the other Party’s Confidential Information, but no less care than reasonable in light of general industry standards and applicable laws regarding data protection, privacy or confidentiality. Confidential Information will only be disclosed on a need-to-know basis to a Party’s employees and contractors bound by non-disclosure obligations at least as protective as those of this Agreement. This Section 10 does not apply to information (a) after it becomes publicly known through no fault of the receiving Party, (b) already rightfully in the receiving Party’s possession when received, (c) developed by the receiving Party without the use of the other Party’s Confidential Information or (d) required to be disclosed by law so long as the other Party is given immediate notice of the request or order that the information be disclosed and the fullest opportunity under law to prevent or limit the disclosure. Each Party acknowledges that its breach of this Section 10 may cause the other Party substantial and irreparable harm for which the other Party would be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any available legal remedies. Each Party hereby waives any requirement to post bond or provide other security as a condition to receiving such equitable relief.
11. Force Majeure
The Company’s obligations hereunder will be suspended so long as compliance is impeded or prevented by causes beyond the Company’s reasonable control, which may include acts of God, embargoes, acts of war (including terrorist attacks), labor disturbances and acts or regulations of governmental entities.
12. Term; Termination; Suspension
12.1. Customer may use the Product during the term specified in the separately executed Sales Order(s) or Purchase Order(s) entered into between GrayMeta and the Customer for the Product (the “Ordering Document(s)”) which shall automatically renew for periods of one year thereafter (the term specified in the Ordering Document together with each renewal term, the “Term”), unless either party provides written notice of its intent to not renew at least ninety (90) days’ prior to the completion of the then current term.
12.2. The Term may be terminated by either Party if either Party materially breaches this Agreement and does not cure the breach within thirty (30) days after receiving written notice of the breach from the non-breaching Party, the non-breaching Party may terminate this Agreement as of a termination date specified in that notice or a subsequent notice delivered within such thirty (30) day period. If the breach cannot be completely cured within the thirty (30) day period, no default will occur if the Party receiving the notice begins curative action within the thirty (30) day period and thereafter proceeds with diligence and in good faith to cure the breach as soon as practicable. Upon termination, Customer will promptly discontinue use of the Product and destroy all copies of the Product and related materials in its possession or control and, upon request by GrayMeta, certify to GrayMeta as to their destruction.
12.3. If Customer fails to make payment to GrayMeta within fifteen (15) days following the applicable payment due date, GrayMeta reserves the right to suspend Customer’s license to use the Product. GrayMeta will reinstate such license once payment is made in full for all amounts past due.
12.4. The provisions of Sections 2.5, 2.6, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14 and 15 will survive expiration or termination of this Agreement.
13. Compliance with Export and Import Laws
Export laws and regulations of the United States, of the European Union and other relevant local export laws and regulations may apply to the Products included in this Agreement. Customer agrees that such export control laws govern Customer’s use and distribution of the Products (including technical data) and any services deliverable under a Sales Order, and Customer agrees to comply with all such export laws and regulations (including “deemed export” and “deemed re-export” regulations). Customer agrees that no data, information, program and/or materials resulting from use of the products (or direct product thereof) will be exported, directly or indirectly, in violation of these laws, or will be used for any purpose prohibited by these laws. Customer shall be solely responsible for payment of all import and/or export duties not included in the Sales Order, if any, in connection with purchase, shipment, installation and use of the Products provided.
14. Fees and Payment
14.1. Fees. Customer will pay all fees specified in the Sales Order. Except as otherwise specified herein or in a Sales Order, (i) fees are based on Services and Content subscriptions purchased, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term.
14.2. Invoicing and Payment. Customer will provide GrayMeta with valid and updated credit card information, or with a valid purchase order or alternative document reasonably acceptable to GrayMeta. If Customer provides credit card information to GrayMeta, Customer authorizes GrayMeta to charge such credit card for all purchased Services listed in the Sales Order for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Sales Order. If the Sales Order specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, GrayMeta will invoice Customer in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Sales Order. Unless otherwise stated in the Sales Order, invoiced fees are due net 30 days from the invoice date. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to GrayMeta and notifying GrayMeta of any changes to such information.
14.3. Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by GrayMeta by the due date, then without limiting GrayMeta’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) GrayMeta may condition future subscription renewals and Sales Orders on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 14.2.
14.4. Suspension of Service. 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 GrayMeta to charge to Customer’s credit card), GrayMeta 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, GrayMeta will give Customer at least 10 days’ prior notice that its account is overdue, in accordance with the “Notice” section below for billing notices, before suspending services to Customer.
14.5. Payment Disputes. GrayMeta will not exercise its rights under the “Overdue Charges” or “Suspension of Service” section above if Customer is disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
14.6. Taxes. GrayMeta’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 GrayMeta has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this section, GrayMeta will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides GrayMeta with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, GrayMeta is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.
15.1. Assignment. Customer may not assign any rights or delegate any obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Company. The Company may freely assign this Agreement. Any attempted assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 15.1. will be null and void.
15.2. Severability; Beneficiaries. If any term of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, the other terms of this Agreement will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
15.3. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.
15.4. Governing Law. The laws of the United States of America and the State of California govern these terms and conditions of this Agreement.

If any of these terms are deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason (including, but not limited to the exclusions and limitations set out above), then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be severed from these terms and the remaining terms will continue to apply. Failure of the Company to enforce any of the provisions set out in these Terms and Conditions and any Agreement, or failure to exercise any option to terminate, shall not be construed as waiver of such provisions and shall not affect the validity of these Terms and Conditions or of any Agreement or any part thereof, or the right thereafter to enforce each and every provision. These Terms and Conditions shall not be amended, modified, varied or supplemented except in writing and signed by duly authorized representatives of the Company. Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, whether enacted in whole or in part by any state or applicable jurisdiction, regardless of how codified, does not apply to this Agreement and is hereby disclaimed.

15.5. Waiver. Failure of either Party to insist upon strict performance of any provision of this or any Agreement or the failure of either Party to exercise any right or remedy to which it, he or they are entitled hereunder shall not constitute a waiver thereof and shall not cause a diminution of the obligations under this or any Agreement. No waiver of any of the provisions of this or any Agreement shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be such and signed by both Parties.
15.6. Notice. Except as otherwise specified in this Agreement, all notices related to this Agreement will be in writing and will be effective upon (a) personal delivery, (b) the second business day after mailing, or (c), except for notices of termination or an indemnifiable claim (“Legal Notices”), which shall clearly be identifiable as Legal Notices, the day of sending by email.

locations. If there is any conflict between this Agreement and any provision set forth in the Sales Order, this Agreement will prevail. No amendment or supplement to this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing, it identifies itself as an amendment to this Agreement and is signed by both Parties’ authorized representatives.
15.8. Notification of Changes. The Company reserves the right to change these conditions from time to time as it sees fit and your continued use of the site will signify your acceptance of any adjustment to these terms.
