Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Vendor may disclose Customer’s Confidential Information to its Third Party Vendors solely to the extent necessary to provide products or services under this Agreement. This Section will not be construed to prohibit disclosure of Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is required by law or valid order of a court or other governmental authority; provided, however, that a party who has been subpoenaed or otherwise compelled by a valid law or court order to disclose Confidential Information (the “Responding Party”) shall first have given sufficient and prompt written notice to the other party of the receipt of any subpoena or other request for such disclosure, so as to permit such party an opportunity to obtain a protective order or take other appropriate action. The Responding Party will cooperate in the other party's efforts to obtain a protective order or other reasonable assurance that confidential treatment will be afforded the Confidential Information. If the Responding Party is compelled as a matter of law to disclose the Confidential Information, it may disclose to the party compelling the disclosure only that part of the Confidential Information as is required by law to be disclosed.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Content is not included in Confidential Information as defined above. To the extent Vendor has any access to Content in the course of providing the Services, Vendor’s entire obligation to keep Content confidential is stated in this Section below. Vendor shall not, intentionally (i) access Customer’s Content or (ii) disclose Customer’s Content to any third party, except to the extent: (a) Customer makes its Content publicly available, (b) as necessary for Vendor to provide, or obtain third-party supplier support for, the Services or to provide information requested by Customer, or (c) as specifically authorized by Customer in writing. Vendor’s obligation to protect Content from unauthorized use, access or disclosure is: (i) to provide the Security Services specifically set forth in this Agreement and (ii) maintain and enforce the then-current standard Vendor security policies and standards applicable to the Services as practiced at the service locations from which Vendor is providing the Services to Customer.
The obligations in this Section shall not apply to the recipient of Confidential Information and/or Vendor with respect to Content to the extent disclosure of Confidential Information or Content is required to comply with laws or respond to requests by a regulatory or judicial body and/or as otherwise required for legal process. In the event that any such disclosure is required, the recipient, and/or Vendor with respect to Content, reserves the right to charge the other party on a time-and-materials basis for recipient’s/Vendor’s reasonable efforts related to its compliance and response, including, if applicable, reasonable attorney’s fees.
Vendor reserves the right to suspend Customer’s access and/or use of the Service for any account for which any payment is due but remains unpaid after 7 days. Customer agrees that Vendor shall not be liable to Customer, or to any third party, for any suspension of the Service resulting from Customer’s non-payment of the fees as described in this Section.
Customer agrees that Vendor may, with reasonably contemporaneous telephonic or electronic mail notice to Customer, suspend Customer’s access to the Service if Vendor reasonably concludes that Customer’s use of the Service is causing immediate and ongoing harm to Vendor or others. Vendor will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the issues causing the suspension of Service. Customer agrees that Vendor will not be liable to Customer or to any third party for any suspension of the Service under such circumstances as described in this Section.
The Agreement shall run on month-to-month basis (“Term”) unless terminated by either Party.
The Vendor may terminate this Agreement immediately in the event of a breach of any material obligation by the Customer under this Agreement. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, Customer shall have no rights to continue use of the Service after the then current Term/billing cycle of the said month. Customer may cancel this Agreement, to be effective at the end of the then current Term.

Customer data, Customer license keys used in hosting and Customer application documentation updated during the hosting period by application support would be returned to the Customer as defined in this Agreement.
Vendor reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof), provided such modification does not diminish the functionality of the Service to the Customer on which the Customer materially relies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, except for routinely scheduled down time, or as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Vendor shall use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer prior to any such modification; further, Vendor shall consider the Customer’s validation needs and requirements in connection with any modification of the Service and, except as otherwise noted in Section 9.3, shall validate the Service as modified to the same extent provided in the Schedule. Customer acknowledges that Vendor reserves the right to discontinue offering the Service at the conclusion of Customer’s then current Term. Customer agrees that Vendor will not be liable to Customer or any third party for any modification or discontinuance of the Service.
VENDOR DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE SERVICE WILL BE SECURE, TIMELY, UNINTERRUPED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT THE SERVICE WILL MEET CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS OR THAT ALL ERRORS IN THE SERVICE AND/OR DOCUMENTATION WILL BE CORRECTED OR THAT THE SYSTEM THAT MAKES THE SERVICE AVAILABLE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS OR THE SERVICE WILL OPERATE IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, SYSTEMS OR DATA NOT PROVIDED BY VENDOR OR THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE SECURE OR THAT VENDOR AND ITS THIRD PARTY VENDORS WILL BE ABLE TO PREVENT THIRD PARTIES FROM ACCESSING CUSTOMER DATA OR CUSTOMER’S CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, OR ANY ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED OR ANY STORED CUSTOMER DATA WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE.

CUSTOMER ASSUMES ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR DETERMINING WHETHER THE SERVICE OR THE INFORMATION GENERATED THEREBY IS ACCURATE OR SUFFICIENT FOR THE CUSTOMER’S PURPOSE.
NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, LOST PROFITS, LOST OR CORRUPTED DATA OR CONTENT, LOST REVENUE ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE SERVICE, THE USE OF THE SERVICE OR THE INABILITY TO USE SERVICE), EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF VENDOR OR ANY THIRD PARTY VENDORS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY LICENSE, USE, OR OTHER EMPLOYMENT OF THE SERVICE, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM ANY CLAIM BASED ON BREACH OR REPUDIATION OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY CUSTOMER IN THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM. THERE SHALL BE ONLY ONE AGGREGATE LIABILITY CAP UNDER THIS AGREEMENT EVEN IF THERE ARE MULTIPLE CLAIMS; EACH CLAIM SHALL REDUCE THE AMOUNT AVAILABLE IN THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY CAP.

The party seeking indemnification shall give prompt notice of the claim and will tender the defense; provided, however, that such party’s failure to provide notification shall not affect the indemnifying party’s indemnification obligations except to the extent that the failure to notify delays or prejudices the indemnifying party’s ability to defend the applicable claim. The indemnifying party shall conduct the defense and shall have control of the litigation, and the indemnified party shall cooperate in defending against the claim. The indemnified party shall have the right, at any time and at its own expense, to participate in the defense of the claim with counsel of its own choosing. The indemnifying party shall not make any settlement of the claim that results in any liability or imposes any obligation on the indemnified party without the prior written consent of the indemnified party. If the indemnifying party fails to (i) respond to the notice of a claim, or (ii) assume the defense of a claim, the party seeking indemnification shall have the right to defend the claim in such manner as it may deem appropriate, at the reasonable cost, expense, and risk of the indemnifying party, and the indemnifying shall promptly reimburse the indemnified party for all such costs and expenses.
