      3. is received from a third party without knowledge of any breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; or
      4. was independently developed by the Receiving Party.
    3. 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 from the Company.
    4. Protection of Confidential Information. As between the parties, each party retains all ownership rights in and to its 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) to:
      1. not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and
      2. except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, 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 not materially less protective of the Confidential Information than those herein.
    5. Agreement Terms. Neither party will disclose the terms of 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 “Confidentiality” section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may disclose the terms of any applicable Order Form to a contractor or Non-FutureFeed Application Provider to the extent necessary to perform the Company’s, or the Non-FutureFeed Application Provider’s, obligations under this Agreement, under terms of confidentiality materially as protective as set forth herein.
    6. 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.
  13. Representations, Warranties, Exclusive Remedies, and Disclaimers

    2. The Company’s Warranties. The Company warrants that during an applicable Subscription term:

SERVICES PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE, CONTENT, AND BETA SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” AND AS AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVE OF ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER.
  14. Indemnification
    1. Indemnification by Client.
      1. Obligations: Client will indemnify and defend the Company, its Affiliates, and any Non-FutureFeed Application developer(s), as well as their successors, parents, subsidiaries, Affiliates, officers, directors, employees, users, attorneys, and Representatives (collectively and individually the “Client-Indemnified Parties”) and hold them harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, costs, judgments, liabilities, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements and costs of investigation, litigation, settlement, judgment, interest, fines and penalties) (collectively, “Client-Indemnified Losses”) arising out of or relating to any third party claims, demands, or proceedings by a third party (each a "Claim Against the Company"):
        1. alleging that the combination of a Non-FutureFeed Application, configuration, or content provided by Client with the Services infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights; or
        2. arising from:
          1. Client’s use of the Services or Content in an unlawful manner or in violation of the Agreement, the Documentation, or Order Form;
          2. any Client Data or Client’s use of Client Data with the Services; or
          3. a Non-FutureFeed Application provided by Client.
      2. Indemnification Terms. Client will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Client-Indemnified Parties from any Client-Indemnified Losses finally awarded against the Client-Indemnified Parties as a result of, or for any amounts paid by the Client-Indemnified Parties under a settlement approved by the relevant Client-Indemnified Party in writing of a Claim Against the Company.
    2. Indemnification by the Company.
      1. Obligations. The Company will defend, indemnify, and/or hold Client and its successors, parents, subsidiaries, Affiliates, officers, directors, employees, users, attorneys, and Representatives (collectively and individually the "Company-Indemnified Parties") harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, costs, judgments, liabilities, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements and costs of investigation, litigation, settlement, judgment, interest, fines and penalties) (collectively, “Company-Indemnified Losses”) arising out of or relating to any third party claims, demands, or proceedings (a “Claim”) asserting that the Services, or the use thereof (as permitted under this Agreement), infringes or misappropriates any third party’s Intellectual Property Rights.
      2. Limitations. The Company will not have any liability or indemnification obligations to Client under this Agreement to the extent that any Company-Indemnified Losses arise directly as a result of: (a) use of the Services by Client or any third party in combination with equipment, materials, products or software not authorized by the Company where the Service alone would not be infringing; or (b) compliance with designs, plans, or instructions provided to the Company by Client.
    3. License, Replacement or Refund. If a Service becomes the subject of a Claim, the Company will, at its expense and sole discretion, make reasonable efforts to: (i) obtain a license from such third party for the benefit of Client; (ii) replace or modify the Services (“Replacement”) so it is no longer the subject of a Claim so long as such Replacement performs, at the Company's sole discretion, substantially the same functions as the Services at issue.
    4. Procedure.
      1. Notice and Assistance. The indemnified party will give the indemnifying party prompt written notice of all Claims for which indemnity is sought hereunder and will provide the indemnifying party with: (a) all related documentation in the indemnified party's possession or control relating to such Claims; and (b) reasonable assistance to the indemnifying party in the defense of such Claims. Any delay in this notice will not relieve the indemnifying party of its indemnity obligations unless the delay effects a forfeiture of material rights and defenses that the indemnifying party would have otherwise been able to assert on behalf of the indemnified party.
      2. Control and Participation. The indemnifying party will control, at the indemnifying party's sole cost and expense, the defense or settlement of all such Claims and will keep the indemnified party apprised of the status of all such Claims. The indemnified party will have the right, but not the obligation, to participate in the defense of all such Claims with counsel of the indemnified party's choice at the indemnified party's sole cost and expense.
      3. Settlement Approval. If any settlement requires any action or admission by the indemnified party, then the settlement will require the indemnified party's prior written consent.
      4. No Relief. Failure by the indemnified party to provide prompt notice of a claim or to provide such control, authority, information or assistance will not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this section, except to the extent that the indemnifying party is materially prejudiced by such failure.
    5. Exclusions. The obligations arising in this section do not apply if a Claim arises from the indemnified party’s breach of this Agreement, the Documentation or applicable Order Forms.
    6. Exclusive Remedy. This “Indemnification” section states both parties’ sole liability to, and the indemnified party’s exclusive remedy against, the other party for any third-party claims, expressly including any other form of indemnity that may be available under the US Uniform Commercial Code.
  15. Limitation of Liability
    1. Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF EITHER PARTY, TOGETHER WITH ALL OF ITS AFFILIATES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY CLIENT AND ITS AFFILIATES HEREUNDER FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY IN THE TWELVE MONTHS PRECEDING THE FIRST INCIDENT OUT OF WHICH THE LIABILITY AROSE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION WILL APPLY WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY BUT WILL NOT LIMIT CLIENT'S AND ITS AFFILIATES’ PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE “FEES AND PAYMENT” SECTION ABOVE. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE COMPANY WILL MAKE BEST EFFORTS TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL RELIEF TO CLIENT, UP TO LIMITS AVAILABLE THROUGH OUR INSURANCE, WHERE POSSIBLE, IF A SERVICE IS BREACHED AS A DIRECT RESULT OF THE COMPANY'S ACTION OR INACTION.
    2. Exclusion of Consequential and Related Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY OR ITS AFFILIATES HAVE ANY LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, GOODWILL, OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, COVER, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF THE COMPANY OR ITS AFFILIATES HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR IF THE COMPANY’S OR ITS AFFILIATES’ REMEDY OTHERWISE FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW.
  16. Term and Termination
    1. Term of Agreement. This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and continues until all Services hereunder have expired or have been terminated.
    2. Term of and Access to Services. The term of each Service (i.e., the "Subscription Term") shall be as specified in the applicable Order Form, as extended using the Renewals provision, below. Client shall be prohibited from accessing a Service once the Subscription Term has expired.
    3. Renewals. Except as otherwise specified in an Order Form, Paid Services will automatically renew for additional one-year terms, unless either party gives the other written notice (email acceptable) at least 30 days before the end of the relevant term. Except as expressly provided in the applicable Order Form, renewal of promotional or one-time priced Subscriptions will be at the Company’s applicable list price in effect at the time of the applicable renewal. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any renewal in which the volume, length, enclave size, or other attributes used to calculate a fee for a Service has materially decreased from the prior term, such decreases will result in re-pricing at renewal without regard to the prior term’s pricing.
    4. Termination. A party may terminate this Agreement for cause:
      1. upon 30 days written notice to the other party of a material breach if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period; or
      2. if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation, or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
    5. No Refunds upon Termination. Client expressly acknowledges and agrees that:
      1. Client’s Subscription is for a fixed length of time at a specific price;
      2. Client had the opportunity to negotiate the rate and pricing terms;
      3. Client received significant benefit as a result of such negotiations; and
      4. although Client may terminate the agreement at any time, Client purchased a Subscription for a fixed fee, and that fee shall not be refundable by the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company has breached this Agreement or terminated this Agreement without cause, Client shall be entitled to a pro-rata refund of the Subscription fees paid for the then-current term(s) for such Subscriptions.
    6. Client Payment Upon Termination. In no event will Client's termination of this Agreement, or Company's termination of this Agreement for cause, relieve Client of its obligation to pay any fees payable to the Company.
    7. Access to Client Data. Client's access to a Service and all Client Data stored therein shall immediately cease upon the latter of the termination date of this Agreement or the expiration of the Subscription Term for that Service. For the purposes of clarity, if Client purchases an annual Subscription to a Service on January 1 and terminates the Subscription on May 1, Client's rights to access the corresponding Service under this Agreement would still persist until December 31. Except as described above in the provision entitled "Protection of Client Data" and the Privacy Policy, the Company is under no obligation to permit Client to access any Client Data or the Service after the expiration of the Subscription Term.
    8. Reestablishing a Subscription. If Client allows a Subscription to a Service to expire (i.e., the "initial Subscription expires") and then purchases a new Subscription to the same Service before the Company deletes Client's information, the Company will, at Client's request, reestablish Client's access to Client's information, provided Client purchases an annual Subscription to the Service. In such circumstances, the Company shall be entitled to shorten the term of the new Subscription such that it will expire at a date equivalent to when the initial Subscription would have expired if Client had purchased an annual renewal Subscription prior to the expiration of the initial Subscription Term.
    9. Deleting Customer Information. After any data retention period defined in the Documentation, the Company will have no obligation to maintain or provide any Client Data, and as provided in the Documentation will thereafter be entitled to delete or destroy all copies of Client Data in its systems or otherwise in its possession or control, unless legally prohibited. See the Customer Data Retention Policy for additional details.
    10. Return of Information. Client agrees to return or destroy, and upon request certify the destruction of, all of The Company's Confidential Information upon the latter of the termination of this Agreement and the expiration date(s) for any Subscriptions ordered under this Agreement.
    11. Surviving Provisions. The sections titled “Free Services,” “Fees and Payment,” “Content Usage,” “Proprietary Rights and Licenses,” “Confidentiality,” “Disclaimers,” “Mutual Indemnification,” “Limitation of Liability,” “No Refunds upon Termination,” "Client Payment Upon Termination," “Removal of Content and Non-FutureFeed Applications,” “Surviving Provisions” and “General Provisions” will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement, and the section titled “Protection of Client Data” will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement for so long as the Company retains possession of Client Data.
  17. General Provisions
    1. Export Compliance. The Services, Content, other the Company technology, and derivatives thereof may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions. The Company and Client each represents that it is not on any U.S. government denied-party list.

      1. the applicable Order Form,

    11. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for failing to perform under the Agreement to the extent that a Force Majeure Event caused the failure provided the party subject to the Force Majeure Event did not contribute to or cause the Force Majeure Event and could not reasonably have mitigated the impact of such event. The party subject to the Force Majeure Event must promptly notify the other party in writing and must perform the obligations that were not performed as soon as the Force Majeure Event stops. This section will not apply to any payment obligations under this Agreement.
    12. Assignment. Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the other party’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld); provided, however, either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (including all Order Forms), without the other party’s consent to its Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Client is acquired by, sells substantially all of its assets to, or undergoes a change of control in favor of, a direct competitor of the Company, then the Company may terminate this Agreement upon written notice. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
