(d) Taxes. The amounts specified in any Order Form do not include any taxes, levies, duties, or similar charges assessed against or payable in connection with this Agreement, exclusive only of taxes based on Clareo’s net income (“Taxes”). End User shall be responsible for and pay all Taxes and will reimburse Clareo should End User fail to do so. If End User claims to be exempt from any Taxes, then End User shall deliver to Clareo appropriate evidence of such tax exemption status.
8. Use Term. This Agreement will begin on the Effective Date and will, unless earlier terminated as provided herein, continue in effect so long as an Order Form is in effect, or for so long as End User has indicated that it should continue by way of End User’s selection(s) via the online self-service portal. Following the initial Use Term for Services, the Use Term will automatically renew for additional Use Terms which are commensurate in length to the initial Use Term agreed to by the parties, unless: (i) otherwise specified on the Order Form; or (ii) either party gives the other party written notice (which notice may be provided by email or via the online self-service portal) of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the applicable Use Term.
(a) Basis for Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement or its access and use of the Services for an applicable Use Term if: (a) the other party is in material breach of this Agreement and fails to remedy such breach within thirty (30) days of receiving written notice to do so by the non-breaching party; (b) any proceeding in bankruptcy, receivership, liquidation or insolvency is commenced against the other party or its property, and the same is not dismissed within thirty (30) days; (c) the other party makes any assignment for the benefit of its creditors, becomes insolvent, commits any act of bankruptcy, ceases to do business as a going concern, or seeks any arrangement or compromise with its creditors under any statute or otherwise; or (d) End User becomes controlled by, in control of, or under common control with, a competitor of Clareo.
(b) Effect of Termination. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement or a Use Term for any reason, all rights of the End User to access or use the terminated or expired Services will end. In the event the Agreement or an individual Use Term is terminated by Clareo in accordance with Section 9(a), then all payments that would otherwise have been payable for the Services during such Use Term will become due immediately. In the event the Agreement is terminated by End User for breach by Clareo in accordance with Section 9(a), then all pre-payments made by End User to Clareo for the terminated Services that would otherwise have been performed after their termination date will be refunded to End User. Sections 1, 8, 9, 10(b), and 11 through 15 will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
(c) Delivery of End User Data. Unless otherwise agreed in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Clareo, Clareo has no obligation to retain any End User Data or Results after the Use Term and will destroy all End User Data and Results in its possession within ninety (90) days after the end of the Use Term; provided that, upon End User’s written request received within thirty (30) days after termination, Clareo will deliver to End User a copy of the End User Data then currently stored by Clareo.
(d) Suspension. In addition to Clareo’s other rights or remedies which may be available under this Agreement or at law or in equity, if End User commits a breach of this Agreement (including failure to pay any amounts when due under this Agreement), then Clareo will also be entitled to suspend performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement, including access to the Services, upon five (5) days’ notice to End User. Any suspension by Clareo will not excuse End User from its obligation to make payments under this Agreement. If, however, Clareo elects to continue to provide any of the Services despite any such breach, its action will not constitute a waiver of any breach by End User or in any way preclude Clareo’s right to exercise any other rights or remedies available to it, including termination.
(a) Each party represents and warrants that it has validly entered into this Agreement and has the legal power to do so.
(b) Clareo warrants that (i) Clareo will not materially decrease the overall security of the Services during a Use Term and (ii) the Services will perform materially in accordance with the applicable Documentation. For any breach of an above warranty, Customer’s exclusive remedies are to terminate this Agreement for cause as provided above.
(c) End User warrants that it owns all right, title and interest, or possesses sufficient license rights, in and to the End User Data as may be necessary to permit the use contemplated under this Agreement. End User bears all responsibility and liability for the accuracy and completeness of the Data and Clareo’s access, possession and use as permitted herein.
(d) DISCLAIMER. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, NEITHER PARTY MAKES ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND EACH PARTY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

(a) Definition; Restrictions; Return. The parties acknowledge that during the term of this Agreement one party (the “Receiving Party”) may receive confidential, non-public or proprietary information relating to the other party (the “Disclosing Party”), which shall include, but is not limited to, all trade secrets, know-how, inventions, techniques, processes, algorithms, software programs, hardware, schematics, planned product features, functionality, performance and software source documents of the Disclosing Party (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Clareo Confidential Information will be deemed to include the Services, software source documents relating to the Services and the Documentation. End User Confidential Information will be deemed to include End User Data. A Receiving Party will use Confidential Information solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and shall use the same or greater degree of care in safeguarding Confidential Information as it uses for its own Confidential Information of like importance, but no less than reasonable care. A Receiving Party is permitted to disclose Confidential Information to its Affiliates, subcontractors and agents which, in each case, have need to know to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement, and provided that the Receiving Party is liable for such Affiliate’s, subcontractor’s and agent’s compliance with the terms of this section. Upon request, all copies and excerpts of Confidential Information will be promptly returned to Disclosing Party, or at the Receiving Party’s option, instead be securely erased, excepting any archived copies, which will remain subject to these confidentiality provisions.
(b) Exclusions. A Receiving Party’s obligation of confidentiality and restriction on use will not apply to Confidential Information if, and then only to the extent that it is: (i) known to Receiving Party before receipt from Disclosing Party; (ii) generally available to the public (or becomes so) without the fault or negligence of Receiving Party; (iii) rightfully received by Receiving Party from a third party without a duty of confidentiality; or (iv) independently developed by Receiving Party or its Affiliates without any use of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
(c) Required Disclosures. Receiving Party is permitted to disclose Confidential Information as required by law provided, however, that the Receiving Party will: (i) where permitted by law, give Disclosing Party written notice promptly upon receipt of a disclosure requirement and before the disclosure is made, (ii) take reasonable actions and provide reasonable assistance to Disclosing Party, to secure confidential treatment of the Confidential Information at the cost of Disclosing Party, and (iii) disclose only such Confidential Information as is required by law.
(a) Clareo’s Obligations.

(b) Injunctions. If any Third Party obtains an injunction against End User’s use of the Services as a result of any Claim, or if Clareo determines that End User’s use of the Services may be subject to a Claim, then Clareo will either: (i) procure for End User the right to continue to use the Services, or (ii) replace or modify the Services, without material and adverse decrease in functionality, so that End User’s use is not subject to a Claim. If Clareo determines that it cannot accomplish either of the foregoing in a commercially reasonable manner, then, upon the request of Clareo: (i) End User will immediately cease all use of the Service, and (ii) all prepayments made by End User to Clareo for such Service that would otherwise have been performed after the termination date will be refunded to End User.
(c) Exclusions. Clareo will have no obligations or liability attributable to any Claim arising from or related to: (i) the End User Data, (ii) the use of any Services produced in accordance with End User’s specifications, designs or instructions, (iii) the combination of any Services with any product or service not provided by Clareo under this Agreement, if the Services, alone, would not have resulted in such infringement, (iv) the use of any Services in a manner not permitted by this Agreement, or (v) the modification of any Services by any person other than Clareo.
(d) End User Obligations. End User agrees to indemnify and hold Clareo harmless against any Third Party Claims and all resulting losses, liabilities, costs and expenses attributable to or arising from (i) End User’s unauthorized use of the Services, (ii) End User’s use of the Results, including any modifications thereto, or any combination of the Results with any other data or information where the claim would not have arisen but for such modification, combination or use, (iii) any breach of its representations and warranties set forth herein, and (iv) any actual or alleged violation by End User of the rights of any third party (including intellectual property rights or any rights of privacy or publicity).
(e) SOLE REMEDY.

(a) End User may provide at its discretion, or Clareo may request, input regarding the Services, including, without limitation, comments or suggestions regarding the possible creation, modification, correction, improvement or enhancement of a portion of the Services or another Clareo site, service or product (collectively “Feedback”). End User acknowledges and agrees that any Feedback will be considered Confidential Information of Clareo and End User hereby assigns to Clareo all right, title and interest in and to such in Feedback. Clareo will be entitled to use Feedback for any purpose without restriction or remuneration of any kind.
