The terms of this Agreement govern Customer's access and use of the Hosted Services, except to the extent there is a separate signed agreement between Customer and Behavest governing Customer's access and use of the Hosted Services. To the extent of a conflict between the provisions of the foregoing documents, the order of precedence will be (1) the signed agreement, and (2) this End User License Agreement.
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Behavest grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited right to (i) access the Hosted Services and (ii) use the Hosted Services only in accordance with the documentation for the Hosted Services that may be provided to Customer, in electronic format or otherwise, in each case for use only within Customer’s internal business operations.
Customer will ensure that neither Customer nor any of Customer’s employees, contractors or agents allow any person or entity other than the person entering into this Agreement on Customer’s behalf access to Hosted Services. Customer shall immediately notify Behavest upon its knowledge or belief that such Hosted Services are or may be being used in violation of this Section 1.2 or is otherwise being used in connection with a breach of this Agreement.
Customer guarantees the performance of and will be fully responsible for any failure by Customer or its employees, contractors or agents to comply with, the terms of this Agreement.
If Customer makes any suggestions, comments, enhancement requests, recommendations or provides any other feedback to Behavest regarding the Hosted Services or any other matter, Behavest has and will have the right, without any requirement to compensate Customer, to use and to permit others to use any such suggestions, enhancement requests, comments, recommendations or other feedback for any purpose including, but not limited to, incorporating them into the Hosted Services, which shall be the property of Behavest.

(k) use or rely on the Hosted Services, including any reports generated by the Hosted Services, in connection with the development by Customer of any programs, writings, or works, or in connection with the production of products or the performance of services for third parties; or
(l) introduce in or to the Hosted Services any virus or implement a denial of service attack or introduce or implement any other code or routine which results in disruption or damage to the Hosted Services, alter, damage or delete any data or retrieve or record information about the Hosted Services or its uses. Customer will promptly notify Behavest of any complaints or objections to Customer’s use of the Hosted Services.
Customer acquires no ownership rights in or title to the Hosted Services and will not at any time have physical access to any facility providing the Hosted Services. Except for the license rights expressly granted to Customer in Section 1.1, and except as provided in Section 1.7, Behavest and its licensors (if any) retain all ownership rights in and title to the Hosted Services.
The Hosted Services may include certain open-source software and other freely available software and material ("Excluded Components"). Behavest will identify Excluded Components included in the Hosted Services upon request for a proper purpose consistent with this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Excluded Components are governed by the terms and conditions of the applicable license and/or notice provided by the third party authors, contributors and suppliers of the Excluded Components (the “Suppliers”), and Behavest has no responsibility or liability of any kind related to such Excluded Components. The Suppliers' licenses and other notices (including instructions for obtaining source code for certain Excluded Components), may be available in the documentation accompanying the Hosted Services. Customer agrees to comply with all such licenses and other notices. Further, and notwithstanding any of the terms of this Agreement or any other agreement Customer may have with Behavest:
(a) the Suppliers provide the Excluded Components WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND AND SUCH SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE WARRANTY OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR INTERFERENCE AND THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO THE EXCLUDED COMPONENTS; and
(b) in no event are the Suppliers liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages, including, but not limited to lost data, lost savings and lost profits, with respect to the Excluded Components.
Behavest may, but will not be required to, decide in its sole discretion to modify, enhance or otherwise change the Hosted Services. Any and all bug fixes, updates, upgrades, modifications and new releases of the Hosted Services (collectively, “Improvements”) provided to Customer by Behavest will be considered “Hosted Services” subject to the provisions of this Agreement; provided that Behavest may, in its sole discretion, license any Improvements (including but not limited to a new version of Hosted Services) on separate, different or additional terms (including for an additional fee).
Neither party will take any action intended to appropriate or perfect rights in the intellectual property of the other, including, without limitation, the filing of patent, trademark, or service mark applications or copyright registrations.
This Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and will continue until the earlier of (a) termination pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, or (b) Behavest and Customer entering into a further agreement that expressly supersedes this Agreement.
Customer may terminate use of the Hosted Services at any time for any reason or no reason by ceasing to use the Hosted Services.
Behavest may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to Customer if Customer breaches a material provision of this Agreement and fails to cure the breach within thirty (30) days following such notice. Notwithstanding the above, Behavest may terminate this Agreement immediately after providing written notice to Customer if Customer Behavest an un-curable provision of this Agreement such as, but not limited to, the provisions regarding reverse engineering, disassembly, decompilation or confidentiality.
Upon termination of this Agreement, (a) Customer will immediately cease all use of the Hosted Services; and (b) Behavest will delete any confidential information of Customer then on Behavest’s servers; provided that, if termination occurs for any reason other than Customer’s breach, Behavest may retain such information subject to Behavest and Customer agreeing separately on the terms under which Behavest would retain such information. Termination of this Agreement will not prevent either party from pursuing all available legal remedies that accrued prior to termination, nor will it relieve Customer of any obligation to make payments that accrued prior to termination. The parties' rights and obligations under Sections 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 2.4, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 of this Agreement will survive termination of this Agreement.
In addition to Behavest’s rights to terminate this Agreement, Behavest may suspend Customer’s right to access the Hosted Services at any time if Behavest determines, in its sole discretion, that Customer’s use of the Hosted Services is interrupting or interfering with the normal operation of the Hosted Services.
Customer agrees to pay Behavest all amounts required to be paid (a) upon placing an electronic order for a license, or (b) under the terms of any signed agreement between Customer and Behavest governing Customer's use of the Hosted Services. No failure by Behavest to request any payment or to demand any performance will be deemed a waiver by Behavest or a waiver of Behavest’s right to terminate this Agreement in accordance with its terms.
Customer shall, at its own cost and expense, provide all equipment, operating systems, and software (including Web browser) needed to use and access the Hosted Services in accordance with the technical requirements in Behavest’s documentation. Customer shall also provide, at its own cost and expense, all connections from its computer systems to the Hosted Services.
The Hosted Services contain certain information that Behavest considers either proprietary, confidential, or both (collectively, "Confidential Information"). In addition, during the term of this Agreement Behavest may also disclose to Customer certain other Confidential Information. Customer will hold Behavest’s Confidential Information in confidence and will use its best efforts to protect it. Customer will use such Confidential Information for the sole purpose of performing its obligations under this Agreement. Customer will not disclose Confidential Information to any person other than, in the case of a Customer that is an entity, employees and independent contractors of Customer who need to know such Confidential Information in order to carry out the terms of this Agreement and who are bound by a written confidentiality agreement with Customer that is no less protective of such Confidential Information than this Agreement. Upon request of Behavest, Customer will provide Behavest with reasonable evidence of such written confidentiality agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement, Customer will either return to Behavest all Confidential Information in its possession (including all copies) or will, at Behavest’s direction, destroy all Confidential Information (including all copies) and Customer (or in the case of a Customer that is an entity, an officer of Customer) will certify its destruction to Behavest. The foregoing obligations of confidentiality and non-use will not apply to any Confidential Information that Customer can show, by competent evidence: (a) is publicly known at the time of disclosure or enters the public domain following disclosure through no fault of Customer; or (b) Customer can demonstrate was already in its possession without restriction prior to disclosure under this Agreement. Customer may disclose Confidential Information upon the order of any competent court or government agency, provided that, prior to such disclosure Customer will, unless prohibited by law, inform Behavest of such order and provide Behavest with reasonable assistance to prevent or limit such disclosure. Customer agrees that its obligations under this Article are necessary and reasonable in order to protect Behavest and its business, and that monetary damages would be inadequate to compensate Behavest for any breach by Customer of such obligations. Accordingly, Customer agrees and acknowledges that any such breach or threatened breach will cause irreparable injury to Behavest and that, in addition to any other remedies that may be available at law, in equity or otherwise, Behavest will be entitled to seek injunctive relief against the continued breach or threatened breach of Customer's obligations under this Section 5 without the necessity of proving actual damages.
Customer represents and warrants to Behavest that:
Customer has full personal or corporate power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement, to consummate the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, and that entering this Agreement violates no contractual right of any third party; and
this Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by Customer and constitutes the valid and binding agreement of Customer, enforceable against Customer in accordance with its terms.
Behavest warrants that for sixty (60) days after the Effective Date (the “Warranty Period”) that the Hosted Services (but expressly excluding any and all Improvements) will perform under normal operation substantially in accordance with Behavest’s documentation for the Hosted Services in place as of the Effective Date when used as specified in that documentation. Behavest shall have no obligations under this warranty if the nonconformity is not reported to Behavest during the Warranty Period. Customer’s sole remedy and Behavest’s sole obligation with respect to any breach of the foregoing warranty is to use commercially reasonable efforts to repair the Hosted Services. If Behavest is unable to remedy the nonconformities within a reasonable time, Customer may terminate the license and this Agreement (subject to the survival of the provisions set forth in Section 2.4). Behavest will not be responsible or liable for any failure to meet the foregoing responsibilities or any other responsibilities in this Agreement caused, in whole or in part, by Customer’s systems or any hardware.
EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 7.1, THE HOSTED SERVICES AND ANY MATERIALS PROVIDED BY OR ON BEHALF OF BEHAVEST ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, BEHAVEST DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, ORAL OR WRITTEN, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. NEITHER BEHAVEST NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, OR LICENSORS WARRANTS THAT THE HOSTED SERVICES WILL MEET CUSTOMER'S NEEDS, THAT ALL ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED OR THAT DATA WILL NOT BE LOST. BEHAVEST AND ITS AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, AND LICENSORS MAKE NO WARRANTY, GUARANTEE OR REPRESENTATION, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OF THE HOSTED SERVICES, OR ANY MATERIALS PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) Customer’s use of the Hosted Services is at Customer’s sole risk, (b) Customer is solely responsible for reviewing and evaluating the accuracy and relevance of any information stored on, generated by or received through the Hosted Services, and (c) Behavest cannot guarantee and does not guarantee said accuracy.
THE CUMULATIVE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF BEHAVEST TO CUSTOMER RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE FEES, IF ANY, PAID TO BEHAVEST FOR THE HOSTED SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE. IN NO EVENT WILL BEHAVEST BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING ANY DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, OR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS) ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF BEHAVEST HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF AN AGREED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OR IS HELD UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY OTHER REASON.
THE LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 8 WILL APPLY TO ALL CAUSES OF ACTION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE, MISREPRESENTATION AND OTHER TORTS, AND LIABILITY BASED UPON THE PROVISIONS OF ANY PART OF THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE. THE DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE FUNDAMENTAL TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND THE PARTIES WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THEIR INCLUSION.
Neither party will be liable to the other party for any delay or failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement due to causes beyond its reasonable control. Performance times will be considered extended for a period of time equivalent to the time lost because of such delay.
Customer may not assign or otherwise transfer its rights, duties or obligations under this Agreement to any other person, corporation or other entity without the express prior written approval of Behavest. Any purported assignment or transfer that does not conform to the provisions hereof will be void.
