Customer will maintain up-to-date administration and accounts payable contacts with ReachForce.
- Representations and Warranties. Each party represents and warrants that it has the power to enter into this Agreement and to carry out its obligations under this Agreement. Customer further represents and warrants that Customer will not use the Services or any Deliverables for any unlawful purpose or in contravention of the rights of any third party. ReachForce further represents and warrants that the Services, under normal use, will perform materially in accordance with the applicable ReachForce documentation and be provided in a manner consistent with generally accepted industry standards. If ReachForce fails to provide the Services as warranted, and customer reports such failure within 30 days of such failure, ReachForce will immediately re-perform the services, as applicable. The foregoing is customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of warranty by ReachForce. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 5 OR OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN THE APPLICABLE SERVICE ORDER, REACHFORCE HEREBY DISCLAIMS, ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT, AND ALL WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. FURTHER, REACHFORCE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
- Limitations of Liability. NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOSS OF DATA, OR INTERRUPTION OF CUSTOMER’S BUSINESS, EVEN IF REACHFORCE IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, WHETHER UNDER THEORY OF CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE. EXCEPT FOR CUSTOMER’S BREACHES OF THE LICENSES SET FORTH HEREIN, EACH PARTY’S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, UNDER SECTIONS 5 AND 7, WILL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO REACHFORCE HEREUNDER FOR THE PRIOR 12 MONTH PERIOD. Customer acknowledges that ReachForce has set its prices and entered into this Agreement in reliance upon the limitations of liability and the disclaimers of warranties and damages set forth herein, and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties.
- Indemnification. Each party will indemnify, defend and hold the other harmless from and against any and all costs, liabilities, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) that result from any claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by a third party (each, a “Claim”) arising out of a breach of a representation, warranty or covenant set forth in Section 5 and that are finally awarded to such third party by a court of competent jurisdiction or in settlement of such Claim. The party claiming indemnification will promptly provide written notice to the other party, and the indemnifying party may elect to have sole control of the defense and settlement of such Claim.
- Term; Termination; Suspension. This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and will continue until the expiration or termination of the last-surviving Service Order. A particular Service Order Initial Term begins at midnight of the Effective Date and ends at midnight of the Expiration Date. Unless either party gives written notice of nonrenewal thirty (30) days prior to the Expiration Date of the then current term, Service Orders will automatically renew for successive terms equal to the Initial Term. Either party will have the right to terminate this Agreement or any Service Order if the other party materially breaches this Agreement or any Service Order and fails to cure such breach within 30 days after receipt of written notice from the non-breaching party. Within 30 days after such expiration or termination, each party will return or destroy all Confidential Information of the other party in its possession that it does not have a continuing right to use pursuant to the express terms of this Agreement. Sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10 will survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement.
ReachForce may suspend Customer’s rights to use the Services (in whole or in part) or terminate this Agreement fifteen (15) days following ReachForce’s provision of notice to Customer if Customer is in default of any payment obligation with respect to any of the Services or if any payment mechanism Customer has provided to ReachForce is invalid or charges are refused for such payment mechanism, and Customer fails to cure such payment obligation default or correct such payment mechanism problem within such 15-day period. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer’s payment obligations under this Agreement will not be suspended or terminated if ReachForce suspends or terminates this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9.
- Miscellaneous Provisions. This Agreement together with the applicable Service Orders constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter herein, and supersedes all prior agreements between the parties. Either party’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. In the event that a portion of this Agreement is held unenforceable, the unenforceable portion will be construed in accordance with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remainder of the provisions will remain in full force and effect. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and a Service Order, the terms of the Service Order will govern and prevail. Waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of this Agreement or the failure by either party to exercise any right hereunder will not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of that right or as a waiver of any other right. ReachForce may delegate the performance of the Services to third parties, provided that ReachForce will remain liable for performance. Neither party may assign this Agreement or its rights and responsibilities hereunder without the prior written consent, except that either Party may assign this Agreement if the assignee is an acquiring party or affiliated party including by purchase, merger or operation of law. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon the parties’ respective successors and permitted assigns. Customer agrees that ReachForce may refer to Customer by trade name and trademark, and may briefly describe Customer’s business and the nature of this Agreement, in ReachForce’s marketing materials and web site provided that ReachForce complies with Customer’s publicly available trademark usage guidelines. The laws of the State of Delaware (excluding its choice of law rules) will govern interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any rights arising out of or related to this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs from the other party. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EACH PARTY WAIVES THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT. Except for the obligation to pay money, neither party will be liable for any failure or delay in its performance under this Agreement due to any cause beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, act of war, acts of God, earthquake, flood, embargo, riot, sabotage, labor shortage or dispute, or governmental act. ReachForce and Customer are independent contractors. Any notice or communication hereunder may be delivered by hand, deposited with an overnight courier, sent by confirmed facsimile, sent by email, or mailed by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid. Such notice will be deemed to have been given as of the date it is delivered.
