Any use of the Services in a way that violates this Agreement and threatens the security, integrity, or availability of the Services, may result in immediate suspension of the Services; however, We (or Salesforce on Our behalf) will use efforts commercially reasonable under the circumstances to provide You with notice and an opportunity to remedy such violation or threat before any such suspension.
4.1 General. The Services are developed and operate on the Salesforce Platform and are hosted by Salesforce. This Agreement entitles You to use the Salesforce Platform as part of the Services, and does not entitle You to use any other Salesforce product or service except as expressly provided in this Agreement.
5.1 Acquisition of Non-Certinia Products and Services. We or third parties may make available third-party products or services, including, for example, Non-Certinia Applications and implementation and other consulting services. Except as expressly provided herein regarding the Salesforce Platform, any acquisition by You of such Non-Certinia products or services, and any exchange of data between You and any Non-Certinia provider, is solely between You and the non-Certinia provider. We do not warrant or support Non-Certinia Applications or other Non-Certinia products or services, whether or not they are recommended by Us or designated by Us as preferred, authorized, certified or otherwise, except as specified in an Order Form.
5.2 Non-Certinia Applications and Your Data. If You install or enable a Non-Certinia Application for use with a Service, You grant Us permission to allow the provider of that Non-Certinia Application to access Your Data as required for the interoperation of that Non-Certinia Application with the Service. We are not responsible for any processing, disclosure, modification, or deletion of Your Data resulting from access by a Non-Certinia Application.
5.3 Integration with Non-Certinia Applications. The Services may contain features designed to interoperate with Non-Certinia Applications. To use such features, You may be required to obtain access to Non-Certinia Applications from their providers, and may be required to grant Us access to Your account(s) on the Non-Certinia Applications. We will not be deemed to be in breach of this Agreement to the extent any such Service features cease to function because the provider of the corresponding Non-Certinia Application, other than the Salesforce Platform, ceased to make their Non-Certinia Application available for interoperation with such Service features on reasonable terms.
6.1 Fees. You will pay all fees specified in Order Forms. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are based on Services and Support purchased and not actual usage, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term.
6.2 Invoicing and Payment. Fees will be invoiced annually in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, fees are due net 30 days from the invoice date, and invoices may be sent electronically. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Us and notifying Us of any changes to such information.
6.3 Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by Us by the due date, then without limiting Our 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) We may condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in the “Invoicing and Payment” section above.
6.4 Suspension of Services. If any charge owing by You is 30 days or more overdue, We may, without limiting Our other rights and remedies, suspend Services and Support until such amounts are paid in full, provided We have given You at least 10 days’ prior notice that Your account is overdue in accordance with Section 14.2 (Manner of Giving Notice) below. In addition, if You have an agreement directly with Salesforce, and Salesforce suspends services to You due to Your breach of that agreement, any Services installed, and Your Data hosted, in the same Salesforce instance will also be inaccessible and We will not thereby be deemed to be in breach of this Agreement.
6.5 Payment Disputes. We will not exercise Our rights under Sections 6.3 (Overdue Charges) or 6.4 (Suspension of Service) above if You are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
6.6 Taxes. Our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, GST, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Your purchases hereunder. If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this section, You will reimburse Us for that amount unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. We will calculate applicable Taxes based on the address where You primarily use the Services as specified in the relevant Order Form. You will be responsible for self-assessing and paying any additional Taxes arising from Your use of Services and/or Support at a different address. and will provide Us with proof of payment of such additional Taxes on request. You will promptly notify Us of any changes to any of Your addresses specified in an Order Form. Should any payment for Services be subject to withholding tax by any government, You will remain liable to Us for the full amounts invoiced hereunder, without reduction, and provide proof of payment of such withholding tax, upon Our request. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income (other than such withholding taxes), property and employees.
6.7 Future Functionality. You agree that Your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Us regarding future functionality or features.
7.1 Reservation of Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, We and Our licensors reserve all of their right, title and interest in and to the Services and Support, including all of their related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to You hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein.
7.2 License by You to Host Your Data. You grant Us, Our Affiliates and Our hosting providers a worldwide, limited-term license to host, copy, transmit and display Your Data as necessary for Us to provide and ensure the proper operation of the Services and Support in accordance with this Agreement and Order Forms. Subject to the limited licenses granted herein, We acquire no right, title or interest from You or Your licensors under this Agreement in or to any of Your Data.
7.3 License by You to Use Feedback. You grant to Us and Our Affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into the Services any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by You or Users relating to the operation of the Services.
7.4 U.S. Federal Government End Use Provisions. We provide the Services, including related software and technology, for ultimate U.S. federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: The Services consist of “commercial items,” as defined in FAR 2.101. This customary commercial license is provided in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Software), as well as DFARS 227.7102-4 and 227.7202-4, and accordingly, for Department of Defense transactions, DFAR 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) and DFAR 227.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). In accordance with the foregoing, the rights of the U.S. federal government relating to technical data and software related to the Services (including the rights to use, modify, reproduce, perform, display, or disclose commercial computer software, commercial computer software documentation, and technical data furnished in connection with the Services) include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement. If a government agency has a need for rights not granted under these terms, it must negotiate with Us to determine if there are acceptable terms for granting those rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically granting those rights must be included in any applicable agreement.
8.1 Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Your Confidential Information includes Your Data; Our Confidential Information includes the Services and the Salesforce Platform (which is proprietary to Salesforce); and Confidential Information of each party includes the terms and conditions of this Agreement and all Order Forms (including pricing), as well as business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party. However, Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (ii) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (iii) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party. For the avoidance of doubt, the non-disclosure obligations set forth in this “Confidentiality” section apply to Confidential Information exchanged between the parties in connection with the evaluation of additional Services.
8.2 Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care) (i) not to use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, to limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its Affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those herein. Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement or any Order Form to any third party other than its Affiliates, legal counsel, and accountants without the other party’s prior written consent, provided that a party that makes any such disclosure to its Affiliate, legal counsel or accountants will remain responsible for such Affiliate’s, legal counsel’s or accountant’s compliance with this Section 8 (Confidentiality). Notwithstanding the foregoing, We may disclose the terms of this Agreement and any applicable Order Form to a contractor or Non-Certinia Application Provider to the extent necessary to perform Our obligations under this Agreement, under terms of confidentiality materially as protective as set forth herein.
8.3 Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information.
9.1 Representation. Each party represents that it has validly entered into this Agreement and has the legal power to do so.
9.2 Our Warranties. We warrant that (a) the Services will perform materially in accordance with the applicable Documentation, (b) subject to Section 5.3 (Integration with Non-Certinia Applications) above, We will not materially decrease the functionality of the Services during a subscription term, and (c) We will not materially decrease the overall security of the Services during a subscription term. For any breach of an above warranty, Your exclusive remedies are those described in Sections 12.5 (Termination) and 12.6 (Refund or Payment upon Termination) below.
9.3 Disclaimers. Except as expressly provided herein, neither party or its licensors make any warranty of any kind, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, and each party and its licensors specifically disclaim 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. We do not guarantee that Services will be error-free, will meet Your requirements, or will address all laws, rules or standards applicable to Your accounting, finance or human resources. Beta Services are provided “AS IS,” exclusive of any warranty whatsoever. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, You agree that We will not be responsible or liable for acts or omission of Salesforce.
10.1 Indemnification by Us. We will defend You against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against You by a third party alleging that the use of a Service in accordance with this Agreement infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights (a “Claim Against You”), and will indemnify You from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against You as a result of, or for amounts paid by You in settlement of, a Claim Against You, provided You (a) promptly give Us written notice of the Claim Against You, (b) give Us sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against You (except that We may not settle any Claim Against You unless it unconditionally releases You of all liability), and (c) give Us all reasonable assistance, at Our expense. If We receive information about an infringement or misappropriation claim related to a Service, We may in Our discretion and at no cost to You (i) modify the Services so that they no longer infringe or misappropriate, without breaching Our warranties under “Our Warranties” above, (ii) obtain a license for Your continued use of that Service in accordance with this Agreement, or (iii) terminate Your subscriptions for that Service upon 30 days’ written notice and refund You any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of the terminated subscriptions. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if (1) the allegation does not specifically state that the Services are the basis of the Claim Against You, (2) a Claim Against You arises from the use or combination of the Services or any part thereof with software, hardware, data, or processes not provided by Us, if the Services or use thereof would not infringe without such combination, (3) a Claim Against You arises from a Non-Certinia Application or Your (or Your User’s) breach of this Agreement, the Documentation or an applicable Order Form, or (4) the Claim Against You could have been avoided if You had timely implemented a generally available update, release, patch or other modification to the Services made available by Us or Salesforce (with respect to the Salesforce Platform part of the Services).
10.2 Indemnification by You. You will defend Us and Our Affiliates against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Us or Our Affiliates by a third party (a) alleging that the combination of a Non-Certinia Application or configuration provided by You and used with the Services, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights, or (b) arising from (i) Your use of the Services in an unlawful manner or in violation of the Salesforce TOUs (ii) Your Data or Your use of Your Data with the Services, or (iii) a Non- Certinia Application (a “Claim Against Us”), and will indemnify Us from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Us as a result of, or for any amounts paid by Us in settlement of, a Claim Against Us; provided We (a) promptly give You written notice of the Claim Against Us, (b) give You sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Us (except that You may not settle any Claim Against Us unless it unconditionally releases Us of all liability), and (c) give You all reasonable assistance, at Your expense. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if (1) the allegation does not specifically state that Your Data or Your use of a Service in breach of this Agreement is the basis of the Claim Against Us, or (2) a Claim Against Us arises from the use or combination of Your Data with software, hardware, data, or processes not provided by You, if Your Data or use thereof would not infringe without such combination.
10.3 Exclusive Remedy. This Section 10 (Mutual Indemnification) states the indemnifying party’s sole liability to, and the indemnified party’s exclusive remedy against, the other party for any third-party claim described in this section.
11.1 General Limitation of Liability. In no event will each party’s aggregate liability arising out of or related to this Agreement exceed the total amount paid by You hereunder in the twelve months preceding the first incident out of which the liability arose. The above limitations will apply whether an action is in contract or tort and regardless of the theory of liability.
11.2 Exclusions. In no event will either party have any liability to the other party for any lost profits, revenues, goodwill or indirect, special, incidental, consequential, cover, business interruption or punitive damages, and in no event will either party’s licensor have any liability under this Agreement for any damages, however caused, whether an action is in contract or tort and regardless of the theory of liability, even if a party has been advised of the possibility of such damages or if a party’s remedy otherwise fails of its essential purpose. The foregoing disclaimer will not apply to the extent prohibited by law.
11.3 Limitation of Restrictions. The above limitations and exclusions will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law, or to limit Your payment obligations under Section 6 (Fees and Payment) above. In addition, if You are domiciled in the European Union, then nothing in this Section 11 (Limitation of Liability) shall exclude or limit the liability of either party for death or personal injury caused by that party’s negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for any other liability to the extent that the same may not be excluded or limited as a matter of applicable law.
12.1 Term of Agreement. This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and continues until the 30th day after all subscriptions hereunder have expired or have been terminated.
12.2 Term of Subscriptions. The term of each subscription shall be as specified in the applicable Order
Form. Except as otherwise specified below or in an Order Form, Order Forms and all subscriptions thereunder will automatically renew for additional periods of one year, on the same terms and without entry into a new Order Form, unless either party gives the other notice of non-renewal at least 60 days before the end of the relevant subscription term. The per-unit pricing during any automatic renewal term will be the same as that during the immediately prior term unless We have given You written notice of a pricing increase at least 90 days before the end of that prior term, in which case the pricing increase will be effective upon renewal and thereafter. Any such pricing increase will not exceed 7% of the pricing for the applicable Service in the immediately prior subscription term, unless the pricing in the prior term was designated in the relevant Order Form as promotional or one-time.
12.3 Non-Renewal and Reinstatement of Subscriptions. If You provide timely notice of non-renewal, the Services will expire and Your access to the Services will cease on the subscription end date unless a new Order Form for the Services is entered into on or before the subscription end date. If any Service subscriptions are not renewed by the subscription end date (other than due to Our notice of non-renewal under Section 12.2 (Term of Subscriptions) above), and We and You enter into a new Order Form for such Services during the 90-day period after the subscription end date, You will be charged an additional reinstatement fee equal to a pro rata portion of the total annual renewal subscription for each day that has elapsed since the subscription end date.
12.4 Deactivation of User Subscriptions. In the event of a permitted reduction in the number of Your User subscriptions (e.g., upon renewal), You will promptly deactivate the applicable Users in the Services upon termination of the subscriptions. Any failure to do so will be considered a violation of a contractual usage limit under Section 3.2 (Usage Limits) above.
12.5 Termination. A party may terminate this Agreement if the other party (a) materially breaches this Agreement and fails to cure the breach within 30 days after written notice by the non-breaching party detailing the breach, or (b) becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors, and such petition or proceeding is not dismissed within 60 days. Termination of this Agreement will result in termination of all Order Forms.
12.6 Refund or Payment upon Termination. If You terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 12.5 (Termination) above, We will refund You any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Order Forms after the effective date of termination. If this Agreement is terminated by Us in accordance with Section 12.5 (Termination), You will pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Order Forms to the extent permitted by law. In no event will termination relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees payable to Us for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
12.7 Data Portability and Deletion. You may export Your Data during the term of this Agreement without Our assistance. In addition, if You so request within 30 days after termination or expiration of this Agreement, We will make Your Data available to You for export or download. After such 30-day period, We will have no obligation to maintain or provide any of Your Data and will thereafter delete or destroy all copies of Your Data in Our systems or otherwise in Our possession or control, unless legally prohibited. For clarity, if this Agreement terminates or expires but You continue to use the Salesforce instance where the Services were operating, Your Data specific to the Services may remain inaccessibly stored in the Salesforce Platform until the corresponding Service packages are removed from that Salesforce instance. You may engage Us to assist with such package removal pursuant to a signed statement of work. For avoidance of doubt, the ability to access Your Data for export or download is subject to the terms of Section 6.4 ( Suspension of Services) herein.
12.8 Surviving Provisions. Sections 6 (Fees and Payment), 7 (Proprietary Rights and Licenses), 8 (Confidentiality), 9.3 (Disclaimers), 10 (Mutual Indemnification), 11 (Limitation of Liability), 12.6 (Refund or Payment upon Termination), 12.7 (Data Portability and Deletion), 12.8 (Surviving Provisions), 14 (Who You are Contracting With, Notices, Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Arbitration) and 16 (General Provisions) will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
If We make any of Our products and services available to You as part of a free trial, those products and services will be considered “Services” under this Agreement, including this Section 13, even if the products and services are not specified in an Order Form, notwithstanding the “Services” definition in Section 1 (Definitions). Any such free trial will end at the earlier of (a) the end of the free trial period, (b) the start date of any subscriptions purchased by You for such Services, or (c) termination by Us in our sole discretion. Additional trial terms and conditions may appear on the trial registration web page. Any such additional terms and conditions are incorporated into this Agreement by reference and are legally binding.
Any data you enter into the Services and any customizations made to the Services by or for You during a free trial will be permanently lost unless you purchase a subscription to the same Services as those covered by the trial, or export such data, before the end of the trial period.
