- Payments. Customer agrees to pay amounts invoiced by Armorblox under this Agreement as specified in the applicable Order Form(s) in U.S. dollars (“Fees”). Order Forms are non-cancellable and Fees are nonrefundable. If any authority imposes a sales tax, VAT, or similar levy (other than taxes based on Armorblox’s income) on the provision of products or services under this Agreement as ordered by Customer, Customer agrees to pay and shall indemnify and hold harmless Armorblox for all such amounts that Armorblox is required to pay or collect, including all associated fees and penalties. Payment from Customer is due thirty (30) days after Customer’s receipt of each invoice. Customer may choose to subscribe to the Services through an authorized reseller of Armorblox’s Services, in which event, all Fees shall be paid to the applicable reseller by Customer subject to payment terms agreed to by such reseller and Customer, and all refunds, service credits and similar amounts that may be payable to Customer shall be paid by the applicable reseller to Customer directly and not by Armorblox.
5.1 Confidential Information. A party (“Receiving Party”) may, during the course of this Agreement, acquire information or knowledge of the other party (“Disclosing Party”) that such Disclosing Party designates in writing is confidential or that a reasonable person would understand to be confidential, including, without limitation, business, financial, and product information, the Services, and the terms of this Agreement (“Confidential Information”). The Receiving Party will treat the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as confidential and will not disclose any such Confidential Information to any third party nor use such Confidential Information other than in connection with this Agreement. “Confidential Information” shall not include information that the Receiving Party can document was independently developed by the Receiving Party, is or becomes publicly available without breach of this Agreement, is known prior to disclosure by the Receiving Party, or is acquired by the Receiving Party from a third party free of disclosure obligations. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information if required by applicable law, rule or court order, provided that the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prompt notice thereof and cooperates, at the Disclosing Party’s expense, in any attempt to obtain a protective order or other confidential treatment of such disclosure. A violation or breach of this Section may cause severe and irreparable injury to the non-breaching party with no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, in the event of any actual or threatened violation or breach, the breaching party agrees that the non-breaching party shall be entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief to prevent or stop such violation or breach, as well as other equitable and legal remedies against the breaching party. The obligations set forth in this Section will survive the termination of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer acknowledges that Armorblox utilizes the services of certain third parties in connection with the provision of the Services (such as data hosting providers) and such third parties, along with any other third party service providers that Customer may choose to integrate with the Services, may have access to Customers’ Confidential Information, in accordance with this Agreement.
5.2 Data Protection. Armorblox will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards consistent with applicable industry standards designed to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Data. Customer shall not knowingly utilize the Services in a way that is intended to distribute PHI as it is defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act to Armorblox without entering into a Business Associate Agreement with Armorblox. Any data processing and protection agreement (“Data Protection Agreement”) entered into by the parties in connection with the Services and this Agreement is hereby incorporated into this Agreement and all terms of this Agreement, including any limitations of liability herein, shall fully apply to such Data Protection Agreement.
Limited Warranty and Disclaimer.
6.1 Warranty. Armorblox warrants that the Armorblox Platform will, under normal and authorized use in full compliance with this Agreement, conform in all material respects to the technical specifications described in its Documentation.
6.2 Disclaimer. EXCEPT FOR THE FOREGOING WARRANTY, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE PARTIES HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. ARMORBLOX MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE ARMORBLOX PLATFORM OR SERVICES WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE, BE FREE OF SECURITY DEFECTS OR OMISSIONS, OR OPERATE IN AN UNINTERRUPTED MANNER.
6.3 Exclusive Remedy. Armorblox’s sole obligation and liability, and Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, under the warranty set forth in this Section 6 (“Limited Warranty and Disclaimer”) shall be for Armorblox to, at its sole option, either (i) use commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the problem or correct any errors in the Armorblox Platform or Services, or (ii) refund the applicable Fees paid for the period the Services did not comply; provided that in each case Armorblox is notified in writing of all warranty claims during Term.
7.1 Indemnification. Armorblox will defend Customer from any unaffiliated third party claim to the extent the claim alleges that Customer’s use of the Armorblox Platform as provided by Armorblox to Customer under this Agreement, when used as permitted by this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s U.S. patent or copyright. Armorblox shall have no obligation or liability for any claim of infringement or misappropriation that arises out of or relates to: (i) a combination of the Armorblox Platform with a non-Armorblox application, product, data or business process; (ii) damages attributable to a non-Armorblox application, product, data or business process; (iii) modifications made other than expressly permitted by Armorblox; or (iv) continued use of any product or service for which Armorblox has provided Customer notice to discontinue use due to such a claim and / or modifications or substitutes if use of such modifications or substitutes would have prevented the claim. This Section states Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and the entire liability of Armorblox for infringement claims and actions. Customer will defend Armorblox from any unaffiliated third party claim to the extent such claim alleges a violation by Customer of the third party’s rights.
7.2 Procedure. The indemnified party shall give prompt written notice to the indemnifying party of any such claim, allow the indemnifying party’s exclusive control of the defense and any related settlement of any such claim; and furnish the indemnifying party with reasonable assistance in connection with the claim.
7.3 Assurance of Use. If Customer’s use of the Armorblox Platform is, or in Armorblox’s opinion is likely to be, enjoined due to the type of claim specified in Section 7.1, then Armorblox may, at its sole option and expense choose to procure for Customer the right to continue to use the Armorblox Platform under the terms of this Agreement or replace or modify the Armorblox Platform so that it becomes non-infringing and substantially equivalent in function to the enjoined Armorblox Platform. If none of the foregoing are commercially reasonable in Armorblox’s sole discretion, Armorblox may terminate this Agreement and provide a refund to Customer of prepaid unused Fees with respect to the remainder of the Term.
Limitations and Exclusions.
