Each party anticipates that it may be necessary to provide access to information of a confidential nature of such party, the Affiliates or a third party (hereinafter referred to as "Confidential Information") to the other party in the performance of this Agreement and any Statement of Work. "Confidential Information" means any information or data in oral, electronic or written form which the receiving party knows or has reason to know is proprietary or confidential and which is disclosed by a party in connection with this Agreement or which the receiving party may have access to in connection with this Agreement, including but not limited to the terms and conditions of each Statement of Work Confidential Information will not include information which: (a) becomes known to the public through no act of the receiving party; (b) was known to the receiving party, or becomes known to the receiving party from a third party having the right to disclose it and having no obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing party with respect to the applicable information; or (c) is independently developed by agents, employees or subcontractors of the receiving party who have not had access to such information. To the extent practicable, Confidential Information should be clearly identified or labeled as such by the disclosing party at the time of disclosure or as promptly thereafter as possible, however, failure to so identify or label such Confidential Information will not be evidence that such information is not confidential or protectable. Confidential Information does not include Personal Data.

If a receiving party is required by law, rule or regulation, or requested in any judicial or administrative proceeding or by any governmental or regulatory authority, to disclose Confidential Information of the other party, the receiving party will give the disclosing party prompt notice of such request so that the disclosing party may seek an appropriate protective order or similar protective measure and will use reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment of the Confidential Information so disclosed.

After written notice, the notified party will, subject to the provision of warranties herein, have thirty (30) days to remedy its performance except that it will only have ten (10) days to remedy any monetary default. Failure to remedy any material default within the applicable time period provided for herein will give cause for immediate termination, unless such default is incapable of being cured within the time period in which case the defaulting party will not be in breach (except for Customer’s payment obligations) if it used its reasonable efforts to cure the default. In the event of any termination of the Services or a Statement of Work, Customer will pay Seller for all Services performed and expenses incurred up to and including the date of termination plus any termination fee if one is set forth in the applicable Statement of Work.

Customer may not assign these Terms and Conditions, or any of its rights or obligations herein without the prior written consent of Seller. Subject to the restrictions in assignment contained herein, these Terms and Conditions will be binding on and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their successors and assigns. No provision of this Agreement or any Statement of Work will be deemed waived, amended or modified by either party unless such waiver, amendment or modification is in writing and signed by both parties.

Notices provided under this Agreement will be given in writing and deemed received upon the earlier of actual receipt or three (3) days after mailing if mailed postage prepaid by regular mail or airmail or one (1) day after such notice is sent by courier or facsimile transmission. Any delay or failure by either party to exercise any right or remedy will not constitute a waiver of that party to thereafter enforce such rights.
If and to the extent that any Statement of Work involves the provision of Services remotely by Seller to a Customer location outside of the United States, the following additional terms shall apply with respect to those Services only.
Customer will pay for, and will indemnify, defend and hold Seller and its Affiliates and each of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents harmless from loss (of any kind), cost, damage or expense (including, but not limited to, attorney’s fees and expenses) arising out of any Taxes. Customer must claim any exemption from such taxes, fees or charges at the time of purchase and provide Seller with the necessary supporting documentation.

If the Laws or a governmental authority imposes or adopts regulation, or there is a change in the Laws, which requires Seller or any of its Affiliates to register and/or obtain a governmental license, permit, or consent to make the Services available within a jurisdiction, Seller has the right not to make available or terminate the Service to the Customer’s Affiliate(s) in such jurisdiction without any liability whatsoever to the Customer or its Affiliates. For purposes of this Agreement, “Laws” means any applicable federal, state, provincial, local, municipal, regional, foreign, international, multinational or other constitution, law, statute, treaty, rule, regulation, regulatory or legislative requirement, ordinance, license, restriction, judicial or administrative order, code, common law or other pronouncement having the effect of law.
Customer and Seller are solely obligated to address and resolve all claims, controversies or disputes associated with provision of Services (including any damages or injuries to a party’s foreign Affiliates) in the United States as provided in the Arbitration clause above. In the event a party’s foreign Affiliate brings suit or makes a claim or demand against the other party or an Affiliate of the other party located outside of the United States, such party will work with its foreign Affiliate to dismiss the suit, claim, or demand, and such party will bring such suit, claim or demand against the other party directly in the United States instead. In addition, such party will reimburse the other party or the other party’s Affiliates for any of the costs or expenses that the other party or the other party’s Affiliates reasonably incurred while responding to the suit, claim or demand brought by such party’s foreign Affiliate.
