2. Customer Data
2.1. Rights in Customer Data. As between the parties, Customer retains all right, title and interest (including any and all intellectual property rights) in and to the Customer Data and any modifications made thereto in the course of the operation of the Service as provided to Scatterspoke. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Customer hereby grants to Scatterspoke and its Affiliates a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right to process and store the Customer Data solely to the extent necessary to provide the services to Customer, to prevent or address service or technical problems with the services, or as may be required by law.
2.2. Use Obligations.
(a) In General. Customer’s use of the services and all Customer Data will comply with applicable laws and government regulations, including but not limited to any data localization or data sovereignty laws or regulations. Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy, content and legality of all Customer Data. Customer warrants that Customer has and will have sufficient rights in the Customer Data to grant the rights to Scatterspoke under this Agreement and that the processing of Customer Data by Scatterspoke will not violate any laws or the rights of any third party.
3. Intellectual Property
3.1. Scatterspoke Technology. Customer agrees that Scatterspoke or its suppliers retain all right, title and interest (including all patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property rights) in and to the Service, and all Documentation, any Deliverables, and any and all related and underlying technology and documentation; and any derivative works, modifications, or improvements of any of the foregoing, including any Feedback that may be incorporated (collectively, “Scatterspoke Technology”). Except for the express limited rights set forth in this Agreement, no right, title or interest in any Scatterspoke Technology is granted to Customer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Scatterspoke may freely use and incorporate into Scatterspoke’s products and services any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations, corrections, or other feedback provided by Customer or by any users of the Services relating to Scatterspoke’s products or services (“Feedback”).
3.2. Usage Data. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Scatterspoke may collect and use Usage Data to develop, improve, support, and operate its products and services. Scatterspoke may not share any Usage Data that includes Customer’s Confidential Information with a third party except (i) in accordance with Section 5 (Confidentiality) of this Agreement, or (ii) to the extent the Usage Data is aggregated and anonymized such that Customer and Customer’s Users cannot be identified.
3.3. Marketing. Scatterspoke may use and display Customer’s name, logo, trademarks, and service marks on Scatterspoke’s website and in Scatterspoke’s marketing materials in connection with identifying Customer as a customer of Scatterspoke. Upon Customer’s written request, Scatterspoke will promptly remove any such marks from Scatterspoke’s website and, to the extent commercially feasible, Scatterspoke’s marketing materials. If Scatterspoke requests, Customer agrees to participate in a case study, press release and/or cooperate with Scatterspoke in speaking to the media, and to speak at a future Scatterspoke event.
Each party (as “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 (i) not use any Confidential Information of the other party (the “Disclosing Party”) for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and (ii) 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. If Receiving Party is required by law or court order to disclose Confidential Information, then Receiving Party shall, to the extent legally permitted, provide Disclosing Party with advance written notification and cooperate in any effort to obtain confidential treatment of the Confidential Information. The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
5. Fees and Payment; Taxes; Payment Disputes
5.1. Fees and Payment. All Fees and payment terms are as set forth in the applicable Order Form. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, all payment obligations are non-cancelable and Fees are non-refundable. If Customer issues a purchase order upon entering into an Order Form, then: (i) any such purchase order submitted by Customer is for its internal purposes only, and Scatterspoke rejects, and in the future is deemed to have rejected, any purchase order terms to the extent they add to or conflict in any way with this Agreement or the applicable Order Form and such additional or conflicting terms will have no effect; (ii) it shall be without limitation to Scatterspoke’s right to collect Fees owing hereunder; (iii) it shall be for the total Fees owing under the applicable Order Form; and (iv) on request, Scatterspoke will reference the purchase order number on its invoices (solely for administrative convenience), so long as Customer provides the purchase order at least ten (10) business days prior to the invoice date.
5.2. Taxes. Fees do not include Taxes. Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases hereunder including without limitation all use or access of the Service by its Users. If Scatterspoke has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this section, Scatterspoke will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides Scatterspoke with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. Taxes will not be deducted from payments to Scatterspoke, except as required by applicable law, in which case Customer will increase the amount payable as necessary so that, after making all required deductions and withholdings, Scatterspoke receives and retains (free from any liability for Taxes) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made. Upon Scatterspoke’s request, Customer will provide to Scatterspoke its proof of withholding tax remittance to the respective tax authority.
5.3. Payment Disputes. Scatterspoke will not exercise its rights under Section 6.2 (Termination for Cause) or Section 6.5(a) (Suspension of Service) with respect to non-payment by Customer if Customer is disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute. If the parties are unable to resolve such a dispute within thirty (30) days, each party shall have the right to seek any remedies it may have under this Agreement, at law or in equity, irrespective of any terms that would limit remedies on account of a dispute. For clarity, any undisputed amounts must be paid in full.
6. Term and Termination
6.1. Term. This Agreement is effective as of the Effective Date and will remain in effect until terminated in accordance with its terms. If there is no SOW, Order Form or Retrieval Right currently in effect, either party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the other party. Each Order Form will terminate upon expiration of the applicable Subscription Term, unless expressly stated otherwise therein or in this Agreement.
6.2. Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement (including all related Order Forms) if the other party: (a) fails to cure any material breach of this Agreement (including a failure to pay Fees) within thirty (30) days after written notice; (b) ceases operation without a successor; or (c) seeks protection under any bankruptcy, receivership, trust deed, creditors’ arrangement, composition, or comparable proceeding, or if any such proceeding is instituted against that party and is not dismissed within 60 days. Except where an exclusive remedy is specified, the exercise of either party of any remedy under this Agreement, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement, by law or otherwise. For any termination of this Agreement by Customer for cause in accordance with Section 6.2(a), Customer shall be entitled to a refund of any unused Fees Customer has pre-paid for the Service purchased hereunder.
6.3. Effect of Termination; Customer Data Retrieval. Upon written notice to Scatterspoke, Customer will have up to thirty (30) calendar days from termination or expiration of this Agreement to access the Service solely to the extent necessary to retrieve Customer Data (“Retrieval Right”). If Customer exercises its Retrieval Right, this Agreement and the applicable Order Form shall continue in full force and effect for the duration of the Retrieval Right. Scatterspoke shall have no further obligation to make Customer Data available after termination of this Agreement and shall thereafter promptly delete Customer Data. After the Retrieval Right period, Customer will have no further access to Customer Data and shall cease use of and access to the Service (including any related Scatterspoke Technology) and delete all copies of the Documentation, and any other Scatterspoke Confidential Information in its possession.
6.5. Suspension of Service.

The Scatterspoke personnel that Scatterspoke assigns to perform the Professional Services will be professional and qualified in the performance of the applicable Professional Services.

The parties may mutually agree to SOWs with additional terms and restrictions related to the use of Deliverables provided as part of that project, in which case those terms and restrictions will also apply for purposes of those Deliverables only.
10.1. Indemnification by Scatterspoke. Scatterspoke will defend Customer against any claim by a third party alleging that any Service or Deliverable, when used in accordance with this Agreement, infringes any intellectual property right of such third party and will indemnify and hold harmless Customer from and against any damages and costs awarded against Customer or agreed in settlement by Scatterspoke (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from such claim. If Customer’s use of the Service or Deliverable results (or in Scatterspoke’s opinion is likely to result) in an infringement claim, Scatterspoke may either: (a) substitute functionally similar products or services; (b) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Service or Deliverable; or if (a) and (b) are not commercially reasonable, (c) terminate this Agreement, or the applicable Order Form or SOW and refund to Customer the unused Fees that Customer has pre-paid for the applicable Service or Deliverable. The foregoing indemnification obligation of Scatterspoke will not apply to the extent the applicable claim is attributable to: (1) the modification of the Service or Deliverable by any party other than Scatterspoke or based on Customer’s specifications or requirements; (2) the combination of the Service or Deliverable with products or processes not provided by Scatterspoke; (3) any use of the Service or Deliverables in non-conformity with this Agreement; or (4) any action arising as a result of Customer Data, or any deliverables or components not provided by Scatterspoke. This section sets forth Customer’s sole remedy with respect to any claim of intellectual property infringement.
10.2. Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend Scatterspoke against any claim by a third party arising from or relating to any Customer Data, Customer Materials or any Customer-offered product or service used in connection with the Service and will indemnify and hold harmless Scatterspoke from and against any damages and costs awarded against Scatterspoke or agreed in settlement by Customer (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from such claim.
10.3. Indemnification Procedures. In the event of a potential indemnity obligation under this Section 10, the indemnified party will: (i) promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of the claim, (ii) allow the indemnifying party the right to control the investigation, defense and settlement (if applicable) of such claim at the indemnifying party’s sole cost and expense, and (iii) upon request of the indemnifying party, provide all necessary cooperation at the indemnifying party’s expense. Failure by the indemnified party to notify the indemnifying party of a claim under Section 10 shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under Section 10. However the indemnifying party shall not be liable for any litigation expenses that the indemnified party incurred prior to the time when notice is given or for any damages and/or costs resulting from any material prejudice caused by the delay or failure to provide notice to the indemnifying party in accordance with this section. The indemnifying party may not settle any claim that would bind the indemnified party to any obligation (other than payment covered by the indemnifying party or ceasing to use infringing materials) or require any admission of fault by the indemnified party, without the indemnified party’s prior written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Any indemnification obligation under Section 10 will not apply if the indemnified party settles or makes any admission with respect to a claim without the indemnifying party’s prior written consent.
