b. Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement as a result of a material breach by the other party, if (i) the non-breaching party provides written notice to the other party of the breach, and (ii) such breach is not cured within fifteen (15) days of receipt of notice. However, FifthDomain may terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notification to Customer in the case of breach of the Use of Services Section. Upon termination by FifthDomain for material breach by Customer, all unpaid fees are immediately due and payable. Upon termination by Customer for material breach by FifthDomain, Customer shall be entitled to a refund of any prepaid, unused Subscription fees as of the date of termination.
c. Add-Ons and Expansions. Customer may add new or expand existing Subscriptions, which will be made coterminous with the anniversary date of the then-current Subscription Period and the fees will be prorated.
Neither party will issue any public materials that refer to the other party, this Agreement, or the subscribed Services without the other party’s prior written consent. However, FifthDomain may identify Customer on its client list and may use Customer’s name and logo as well as a mutually-agreed general description of the nature of the relationship on its website and in promotional materials, presentations, and proposals to current and prospective clients. Either party may identify the other party or disclose the existence of this Agreement to its attorneys, auditors and in connection with regulatory filings.
a. Any information disclosed by one party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Recipient”) in connection with this Agreement that is marked confidential or that due to its character and nature a reasonable person under like circumstances would treat as confidential (the “Confidential Information”) will be protected and held in confidence by the Recipient. Confidential Information will be used only for the purposes of this Agreement. Recipient shall disclose Confidential Information only to the Recipient’s employees, contractors, or business partners which are bound by confidentiality obligations no less stringent than these prior to any disclosure on a “need to know” basis.

- is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act or failure of the Recipient;
- is independently developed without benefit of the other party’s Confidential Information; or
- is received from a third party that is not under an obligation of confidentiality.

A Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law, provided that the Recipient provides the Disclosing Party with notice as soon as reasonably practicable to allow the Disclosing Party an opportunity to respond to such requirement and provided further that such disclosure does not relieve Recipient of its confidentiality obligations with respect to any other party.
A5. Customer Data.
a. Customer owns all Customer Data and is solely responsible for the accuracy, integrity, quality, legality, reliability, appropriateness of and copyright permissions of any Customer Data and for adopting procedures to identify and correct errors and omissions in Customer Data. FifthDomain has no obligation to review Customer Data for accuracy. Customer warrants to FifthDomain that Customer Data has been collected, processed and provided to FifthDomain in accordance with applicable laws on the protection of data subjects with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, including in particular any legislation implementing the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive 2002/58/EC (as amended by Directive 2009/136/EC) in the applicable EU member state (“Data Protection Laws”), and also including laws or regulations that will apply to the transfer of Customer Data by FifthDomain to any of its affiliates, employees, contractors and business partners located anywhere in the world. The terms “personal data” and “process” shall have the meanings given to them in the applicable Data Protection Laws.
c. Customer hereby agrees that FifthDomain is reliant on Customer for direction as to the extent to which FifthDomain is entitled to use and process the personal data through the Services or Consulting Services. Consequently, FifthDomain, in its capacity as data processor, will not be liable for any claim brought by a data subject (including Authorized Users) arising from any action or omission by FifthDomain, to the extent that such action or omission resulted directly from the data controller’s instructions. As between FifthDomain and Customer, Customer is solely responsible and liable for any and all Customer Data that Customer or any Authorized User stores, transmits, displays, or otherwise uses in connection with the Services or Consulting Services. FifthDomain has no responsibility to Customer or to any third party in connection with such Customer Data and, as between FifthDomain and Customer, Customer is solely responsible for any losses or damage suffered by FifthDomain in connection with Customer Data. Customer hereby represents and warrants that neither Customer nor any Authorized User will store or otherwise use any Customer Data in connection with the Services that: (i) violates this Agreement; (ii) is defamatory, obscene, abusive, invasive of privacy, illegal or otherwise objectionable; (iii) violates any third party’s trade secrets, Intellectual Property Rights or other personal or proprietary right; (iv) invades or interferes with the rights of privacy or publicity of any person; or (v) contains a virus, malicious code or any other harmful component (Apart from training purposes only).
d. FifthDomain reserves the right, at any time and without notice to Customer, to review, monitor, flag, filter, modify, refuse or remove any or all Customer Data from the Services which violate the terms of this Agreement, but FifthDomain has no obligation to do so. Customer agrees to immediately remove or modify any Customer Data that violates this Agreement or any applicable laws, rules, or regulations, including pursuant to a removal or modification request from FifthDomain; if Customer does not do so, FifthDomain may take down, delete or modify such Customer Data. FifthDomain assumes no liability or responsibility arising from Customer’s or any Authorized User’s activities in connection with the Services or Consulting Services, including, without limitation, any arising from Customer Data that Customer or any Authorized User stores or otherwise uses in connection with the Services or Consulting Services.
e. FifthDomain respects the intellectual property and other proprietary rights of others and has a policy of removing content from the Services that infringes third party copyrights or other intellectual property rights and suspending the user ID of any user who uses the Services in violation of copyright law or other laws governing intellectual property rights, and where appropriate, blocking such user’s access to the Services.
f. Without limiting Customer’s ownership rights in Customer Data, Customer acknowledges and agrees that FifthDomain shall have the right to utilize data capture, syndication and analysis tools and other similar tools to extract, compile, synthesize and analyse any non-personally and non-Customer identifiable data or information resulting from Customer’s use of the Services (“Statistical Data”). Statistical Data may be collected by FifthDomain for any lawful business purpose without a duty of accounting to Customer, provided that the Statistical Data is used only in an aggregated form without specifically identifying the source of the Statistical Data.
Fees. Customer shall pay Service Provider the fees indicated on the Order Form. Unless otherwise provided in an Order Form, all fees are to be paid to FifthDomain within thirty (30) days of the date of invoice. Any late payment will be subject to any costs of collection (including reasonable legal fees) and will bear interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month (prorated for partial periods) or at the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less. If Customer has set up a direct debit, FifthDomain will not debit Customer’s designated account before seven (7) days have elapsed from the date of the invoice. If Customer is delinquent on a payment of fees for fifteen (15) days or more, FifthDomain may suspend access to the Application. Complaints concerning invoices must be made in writing within thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice. Invoices will be sent by electronic delivery unless requested otherwise by Customer, additional fees will apply.

Customer shall provide a listing of output and other such data as may be required to reproduce the Defect.

After execution of this Agreement, only Customer’s signature is required to agree to an unmodified Order Form or other transaction document provided by FifthDomain.

B2. Authorized Users.
a. Authorized User IDs. Each Authorized User is issued a user ID and password which may not be shared or used by more than one person. However, a user ID and password may be reassigned from time to time to a new Authorized User replacing a former Authorized User.

b. Additional Authorized Users. Customer may add Authorized Users during a Subscription Period. The Subscription Period for any additional Authorized User Subscription shall end with the Customer’s current Subscription Period for that Service and the Subscription fee shall be prorated accordingly.

Customer must provide written notice to FifthDomain identifying any Support Contractor that is given access to the Services.
B3. Excessive Usage.
In the event that Customer’s volume of use may degrade or otherwise interfere with the Services or other system performance, FifthDomain will take appropriate measures, which may include immediate suspension or deactivation.

FifthDomain may monitor the external interfaces (e.g., ports) of Customer Data to verify Customer’s compliance with the terms of this Agreement and Customer shall not block or interfere with such monitoring. Customer will reasonably cooperate with FifthDomain to identify the source of any problem with the Services that FifthDomain reasonably believes may be attributable to Customer Data or excessive use of the Services.
B4. Service Upgrades.
FifthDomain regularly provides upgrades, modifications, improvements, enhancements, extensions, new releases, and other changes to the Services, including Updates, and therefore the Services are continually evolving. Some changes to the Services may occur automatically, while others may require Customer to schedule and implement the changes.

B7. Renewal of Orders.
Unless either party has given the other party written notice of non-renewal of Services at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the applicable Subscription Period or renewal Subscription Period, each Subscription will renew for an additional Subscription Period equivalent to the one stated in the Order Form at then-current Subscription fees; unless it corresponds to Evaluation Services. However, the parties may agree in writing to renew a Subscription for longer periods and/or at other mutually agreed upon rates.
B8. Third Party Claims.
a. FifthDomain will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Customer against any damages finally awarded or agreed to in a settlement resulting from a third party’s claim (“Claim”) that the Services violate that third party’s copyright, patent or trademark, or misappropriate that third party’s trade secrets in the applicable jurisdiction provided that Customer has used the Services strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and only if Customer notifies FifthDomain promptly in writing of such Claim and gives FifthDomain full control of and assistance with the defence of such Claim. FifthDomain shall not be responsible for Customer’s compromise or settlement of such a Claim without FifthDomain’s written consent. Customer may retain its own counsel at its own expense, but such expense shall not be included in FifthDomain’s indemnity obligation.
b. If a Claim is made or appears possible, FifthDomain may, at its option, secure for Customer the right to continue to use the Services, modify or replace the Services so that they are non-infringing, or, if neither of the foregoing options is available in FifthDomain’s judgment, terminate this Agreement and refund Customer any unamortized prepaid fees for use of the infringing Services. FifthDomain shall have no liability or obligation with respect to any Claim if the infringement is caused by
i. modifications made according to Customer’s specifications,
ii. modifications by any person not authorized in writing by FifthDomain,
iii. Customer’s failure to comply with FifthDomain’s direction to cease any activity that in FifthDomain’s judgment may infringe a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights,
iv. third party technology or content, including third party technology that is used to provide the Services, or the combination, operation or use of the Services with other product(s) or service(s) not supplied by FifthDomain.
To the extent that a Claim has been caused by any attributable act or omission by Customer or any unauthorized modification or use of the Services, Customer’s indemnity claim shall be reduced by a comparative fault percentage that reflects its responsibility. Subsections (a) and (b) of this section state FifthDomain’s entire obligation to customer with respect to any third-party claim.
c. Customer will indemnify, defend and hold harmless FifthDomain, its affiliates and licensors, and each of their respective employees, officers, directors and representatives from and against any claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to any third-party claim (including claims by Authorized Users) that
i. Customer Data or Customer’s Misuse or unauthorized use of the Services, introduces a virus into the Services, harms any person, violates any law, or violates any third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, privacy or other rights,
ii. Customer has breached any Third-Party Terms, or
iii. Customer has violated the rights of the third party in posting, transmitting, storing, retaining or deleting Customer Data only if FifthDomain notifies Customer promptly in writing of such Claim and gives Customer full control of and assistance for the defence of such Claim. Customer may settle any claim as Customer deems appropriate, provided that Customer obtains FifthDomain’s prior written consent before entering into any settlement. Customer shall not be responsible for FifthDomain’s compromise or settlement of such a Claim without Customer’s written consent.
B9. Return of Customer Data.
Upon Customer’s written request made within thirty (30) days of termination or expiration of a Subscription or this Agreement, FifthDomain will return to Customer a single copy of all Customer Data then in FifthDomain’s possession in FifthDomain’s then-current industry standard data extract format. Additional Customer Data copies shall be available for a fee. After such thirty (30) day period, FifthDomain shall have no obligation to maintain or provide any Customer Data and shall, unless legally prohibited, delete all Customer Data in its possession or under its control. Notwithstanding the foregoing, FifthDomain may retain Customer Data in backup media for an additional period of up to twelve (12) months, or longer if required by law.
