1. License to Offerings
1.1. License grant. Offerings are licensed and not sold as more fully set out in Section 2 below. Upon acceptance of an Order or Quotation (“Order”), and subject to Customer’s compliance with this Agreement, Publisher grants Customer a nonexclusive and limited license to use the ordered Offerings. These licenses are solely for Customer’s own use and business purposes and are non-transferable except as expressly permitted under this Agreement or applicable law.
1.2. Duration of licenses. Licenses granted on a subscription basis expire at the end of the applicable subscription period set forth in the Order, unless renewed.
1.3. End Users. Customer will control access to and use of the Offerings by End Users and is responsible for any use of the Offerings that does not comply with this Agreement.

1.4. Affiliates. Customer may order Offerings for use by its Affiliates. If it does, the licenses granted to Customer under this Agreement will apply to such Affiliates, but Customer will have the sole right to enforce this Agreement against Publisher. Customer will remain responsible for all obligations under this Agreement and for its Affiliates’ compliance with this Agreement and any applicable Order(s). Customer may not permit any persons other than those permitted users as set out in the Order or under the terms of this Agreement to access or use the Offerings.
1.5. Reservation of Rights. Publisher reserves all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement. Offerings are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and international treaties. Rights to access or use Offerings on a device do not give Customer any right to implement Publisher’s patents or other intellectual property in the device itself or in any other software or devices.
1.6. Restrictions. Except as expressly permitted in this Agreement, Documentation or an Order, Customer must not (and is not licensed to):
a) copy, modify, port, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works of any Offering, or attempt to do so;

c) use an Offering for any unlawful purpose;
d) distribute, sublicense, rent, lease, or lend any Offerings, in whole or in part, or use them to offer hosting services to a third party; or
e) provide, or otherwise make available, an Offering in any form, in whole or in part (including, but not limited to, program listings, object and source program listings, object code and source code) to any person without prior written consent from Publisher.
1.7. Feedback. Any Feedback is given voluntarily, and the provider grants to the recipient, without charge, a non-exclusive license under provider’s owned or controlled non-patent intellectual property rights to make, use, modify, distribute, and commercialize the Feedback as part of any of recipient’s products and services, in whole or in part and without regard to whether such Feedback is marked or otherwise designated by the provider as confidential. The provider retains all other rights in any Feedback and limits the rights granted under this section to licenses under its owned or controlled non-patent intellectual property rights in the Feedback (which do not extend to any technologies that may be necessary to make or use any product or service that incorporates, but are not expressly part of, the Feedback, such as enabling technologies).
2. Intellectual Property Rights
2.1. Title to an Offering and Documentation is not transferred to you. Ownership of all copies of an Offering and Documentation and of copies made by you is vested in Publisher at all times, subject to the rights of use granted to you in this Agreement.
2.2. You acknowledge and agree that all Intellectual Property Rights in any Offering and Documentation throughout the world belong to Publisher, that rights in any Offering are licensed (not sold) to you, and that you have no Intellectual Property Rights in, or to, any Offering or the Documentation other than the right to use an Offering and the Documentation in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. You will take no actions which adversely affect Publisher’s Intellectual Property Rights in any Offering and Documentation.
2.3. You acknowledge that you have no right to have access to any Offering in source code form.
2.4. Trademarks shall be used in accordance with accepted trademark practice, including identification of trademark owners’ names. Trademarks may only be used to identify printed output produced by an Offering, and such use of any trademark does not give you any right of ownership in that trademark.
2.5. Publisher shall defend and indemnify the Customer against all damages, costs, liabilities, expenses and settlement amounts finally awarded against Customer in connection with any claim or action by any third party alleging that the Intellectual Property provided under the Agreement, with no input or direction or instruction from Customer, directly infringes any Intellectual Property Rights registered in the country in which Publisher is providing Services (IPR Claim). The maximum aggregated liability for such indemnification outlined in this clause 2 shall be not exceed $500,000 and shall count towards the overall cap as set out in clause 8.2.
2.6. If an IPR Claim is brought or in the reasonable opinion of Publisher is likely to be made or brought, Publisher may, at its own expense, ensure that Customer is still able to use the Offering by either:
a) modifying any and all of the provisions of the Offering without reducing the performance and functionality for any or all of the provision of the Offering, so as to avoid the infringement or the alleged infringement, provided that the terms herein shall apply mutatis mutandis to such modified or substituted services and such modified or substituted services shall be acceptable to Customer, such acceptance not to be unreasonably withheld; or
b) procuring a licence or permission to use the Offering on terms which are acceptable to Customer, such acceptance not to be unreasonably withheld.
2.7. Customer shall promptly notify Publisher if any IPR Claim or demand is made or action brought against Customer for infringement or alleged infringement of any third party right which may affect the provision of an Offering.
2.8. Except to the extent that Publisher should reasonably have known or advised Customer the foregoing provisions of clause 2.6, Publisher shall have no obligation or liability for any IPR Claim to the extent such IPR Claim arises from:
a) any use by or on behalf of Customer of the combination with any item not supplied or recommended by Publisher where such use of the Offering directly gives rise to the claim, demand or action; or
b) any modification carried out on behalf of Customer to any item supplied by Publisher if such modification is not authorised by Publisher in writing where such modification directly gives rise to a claim, demands or action.
2.9. Customer shall fully pay and indemnify Publisher and hold it harmless on demand, from and against all actions, claims, liabilities, demands, proceedings, costs suffered or incurred by Publisher, arising by reason of claims that Customer or any of its end users modify, alter, replace combine with any other data, code, documents or other software, which alters an Offering and such alterations infringe the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party.

This indemnity shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
2.10. This clause 2 sets out the entire liability of Publisher with respect to IPR Claims by any Documentation, Offering or any other materials supplied by Publisher, or use thereof, and Publisher shall have no additional liability with respect to any alleged or proven infringement.
2.11. Publisher shall have no liability to indemnify or hold Customer harmless for any payment made by Customer in settlement or compromise of any IPR Claim against Customer.

3.2. The parties have determined that, for the purposes of Applicable Data Protection Laws, the Publisher shall process the personal data set out here, as a processor on behalf of the Customer.
3.3. Without prejudice to the generality of Clause 3.2 the Customer will ensure that it has all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of the Customer Personal Data to the Publisher for the duration and purposes of this agreement.
3.4. In relation to the Customer Personal Data, the Data Processing Schedule (“DP”) sets out the scope, nature and purpose of processing by the Publisher, the duration of the processing and the types of personal data and categories of data subject.
3.5. Without prejudice to the generality of Clause 3.2 the Publisher shall, in relation to Customer Personal Data:
a) process that Customer Personal Data only on the documented instructions of the Customer, unless the Publisher is required by Applicable Laws to otherwise process that Customer Personal Data. Where the Publisher is relying on Applicable Laws as the basis for processing Customer Personal Data, the Publisher shall notify the Customer of this before performing the processing required by the Applicable Laws unless those Applicable Laws prohibit the Publisher from so notifying the Customer on important grounds of public interest. The Publisher shall inform the Customer if, in the opinion of the Publisher, the instructions of the Customer infringe Applicable Data Protection Laws;
b) implement appropriate the technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Customer Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Customer Personal Data, which the Customer has reviewed and confirms are appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures;
c) ensure that any personnel engaged and authorised by the Publisher to process Customer Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory or common law obligation of confidentiality;
d) assist the Customer insofar as this is possible (taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to the Publisher), and at the Customer's cost and written request, in responding to any request from a data subject and in ensuring the Customer's compliance with its obligations under Applicable Data Protection Laws with respect to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators;
e) notify the Customer without undue delay on becoming aware of a personal data breach involving the Customer Personal Data;

For the purposes of this clause 3.5.f) Customer Personal Data shall be considered deleted where it is put beyond further use by the Publisher; and
g) maintain records to demonstrate its compliance with this Clause 3 and allow for reasonable audits by the Customer or the Customer's designated auditor, for this purpose, on reasonable written notice.
3.6. The Customer hereby provides its prior, general authorisation for the Publisher to:
a) appoint processors to process the Customer Personal Data, provided that the Publisher:
a) shall ensure that the terms on which it appoints such processors comply with Applicable Data Protection Laws, and are consistent with the obligations imposed on the Publisher in this Clause 3;
b) shall remain responsible for the acts and omission of any such processor as if they were the acts and omissions of the Publisher; and
c) shall inform the Customer of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of the processors, thereby giving the Customer the opportunity to object to such changes provided that if the Customer objects to the changes and cannot demonstrate, to the Publisher's reasonable satisfaction, that the objection is due to an actual or likely breach of Applicable Data Protection Law, the Customer shall indemnify the Publisher for any losses, damages, costs (including legal fees) and expenses suffered by the Publisher in accommodating the objection.
b) transfer Customer Personal Data outside of the UK as required for the Purpose, provided that the Publisher shall ensure that all such transfers are effected in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. For these purposes, the Customer shall promptly comply with any reasonable request of the Publisher, including any request to enter into standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission from time to time (where the EU GDPR applies to the transfer) or adopted by the Commissioner from time to time (where the UK Data Protection Legislation applies to the transfer).
3.7. Either party may, at any time on not less than 30 days' notice, revise clause 3 by replacing it with any applicable controller to processor standard clauses or similar terms forming part of an applicable certification scheme (which shall apply when replaced by attachment to this agreement) where there has not been a European Community finding of adequacy pursuant to Article 45 of the EU GDPR in respect of the UK.
4.1. Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” is non-public information that is designated “confidential” or that a reasonable person should understand is confidential, including, but not limited to, Customer Data, the terms of this Agreement, and Customer’s account authentication credentials. Confidential Information does not include information that: (1) becomes publicly available without a breach of a confidentiality obligation; (2) the receiving party received lawfully from another source without a confidentiality obligation; (3) is independently developed; or (4) is a comment or suggestion volunteered about the other party’s business, products or services.
4.2. Protection of Confidential Information. Each party will take reasonable steps to protect the other’s Confidential Information and will use the other party’s Confidential Information only for purposes of the parties’ business relationship. Neither party will disclose Confidential Information to third parties, except to its Representatives, and then only on a need-to-know basis under nondisclosure obligations at least as protective as this Agreement. Each party remains responsible for the use of Confidential Information by its Representatives and, in the event of discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure, must promptly notify the other party.
4.3. Disclosure required by law. A party may disclose the other’s Confidential Information if required by law, but only after it notifies the other party (if legally permissible) to enable the other party to seek a protective order.
4.4. Duration of Confidentiality obligation. These obligations apply: (1) for Customer Data, until it is deleted by Publisher; and (2) for all other Confidential Information, for a period of three years after a party receives the Confidential Information.
Publisher offers availability and support obligations for an Offering. Such obligations are set out in the Service level agreement (“SLA”).
6. Verifying compliance.
6.1. The Customer must keep records relating to Offerings it and its Affiliates use for as long as the Agreement continues and three (3) years thereafter (Audit Period). If an audit, litigation, or other action involving such records is initiated before the end of the Audit Period, the Customer must retain the records until all issues are resolved.
6.2. At Publisher’s expense, Publisher may verify Customer’s and its Affiliates’ compliance with this Agreement at any time upon 30 days’ notice. To do so, Publisher may engage an independent auditor (under nondisclosure obligations) or ask Customer to complete a self-audit process. Customer must promptly provide any information and documents that Publisher or the auditor reasonably requests related to the verification and access to systems running the Offerings. If verification or self-audit reveals any unlicensed use, Customer must, within 30 days, order sufficient licenses to cover the period of its unlicensed use. Without limiting Publisher’s other remedies, if unlicensed use is 5% or more of Customer’s total use of all Offerings, Customer must reimburse Publisher for its costs incurred in verification and acquire sufficient licenses to cover its unlicensed use at 125% of the then-current Customer price or the maximum allowed under applicable law, if less. All information and reports related to the verification process will be Confidential Information and used solely to verify compliance.

8.3. Nothing in this Agreement shall limit or exclude either party’s liability for:
a) death or personal injury resulting from our negligence;
