Airship will have no liability for any such suspension made in good faith.
  4.

Customer will provide Airship with any information or material relating to Customer’s access or use of the SMS Service as reasonably requested by Airship in order to carry out any such audit.
  5. Third Party Applications.  The Service may enable Customer to link Third Party Applications with the Service.  By linking a Third Party Application with the Service, Customer: (i) authorizes Airship to access, receive and, in certain cases, store data from the Third Party Application via the Service (all such data accessed, received and/or stored being Customer Data), and (ii) grants Airship permission to allow the provider of that Third Party Application to access Customer Data via the Service, in each case solely as required for the interoperation of that Third Party Application with the Service.  Airship is not responsible for any usage, transmission, disclosure, loss, modification or deletion of Customer Data or any other content sent to, provided by or accessed by a Third Party Application that Customer links to the Service. Customer is solely responsible for obtaining and securing from the Third Party Application provider all rights and permissions necessary for Customer to link such Third Party Application to the Service, and Airship shall have no liability in connection therewith.  Customer’s access to and use of any Third Party Application (including the linking of the Third Party Application to the Service) is subject to such Third Party Application provider’s terms and conditions that govern the access and use of the Third Party Application, or any separate agreement or transaction that Customer enters into with the Third Party Application provider, and Airship shall have no liability in connection therewith.

4. FEES AND PAYMENT. 

  1. Fees.  Customer shall pay all fees specified in all applicable Order Forms.  Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (a) fees are based on the Service subscribed and the usage metrics specified in the applicable Order Form, (b) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, other than pursuant to Section 10.4 (Refund or Payment upon Termination), and (c) the purchased Service cannot be decreased during the relevant Subscription Term.
  2. Invoicing and Payment.  Unless an Order Form specifies otherwise, fees for the Service are (a) electronically invoiced up front upon execution of the Order Form, and (b) due net 30 days from the invoice date. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Airship and notifying Airship of any changes to such information.  All amounts payable shall be in the currency stated in the applicable Order Form.
  3. Late Payments.  Customer’s failure to pay any undisputed amounts due under this Agreement or any Order Form on a timely basis will be deemed material breach of this Agreement.  If any amount owing by Customer under this Agreement or any Order Form is overdue, Airship may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s unpaid fee obligations under this Agreement or Order Form (including any minimum contract value amount specified in the applicable Order Form) so that all such fees become immediately due and payable, and/or suspend applicable Service and/or Professional Services until all overdue amounts are paid in full.  Airship shall provide at least 7 days’ prior notice that Customer’s account is overdue, in accordance with Section 12.1 (Manner of Giving Notice), before any suspension. Customer will continue to be charged Service fees during any period of suspension. Airship shall not exercise such acceleration or suspension rights specified above if Customer is disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith, and is working with Airship to resolve the dispute. If Airship takes action to collect overdue fees under this Agreement or any Order Form, Customer agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Airship for collecting such overdue fees, including but not limited to, collection fees, reasonable attorney fees and court costs.
  4. Taxes.  Fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”).  Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases hereunder. If any withholding tax applies, Airship’s prices will be adjusted to account for such withholding tax so that the amount received by Airship after the withholding tax is deducted is the full amount Airship would have received if no withholding or deduction had been made of the fees. If Airship has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section, Airship will invoice Customer and Customer shall pay that amount unless Customer provides Airship with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.  For clarity, Airship is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.  
  5. Future Functionality.  Customer agrees that its purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Airship regarding future functionality or features.

5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS AND LICENSES. 

  1. Ownership of the Service.  Airship (and its licensors, where applicable) shall own all right, title and interest, including all inventions (whether patented or not), patent applications, patents, design rights, copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, domain name rights, mask work rights, know-how and trade secrets, and all other intellectual property rights, derivatives thereof, and forms of protection of a similar nature anywhere in the world, in and to the Service and all modifications, extensions, customizations, scripts or other derivative works of the Service.

  3. Ownership of Customer Data.  As between Customer and Airship, Customer exclusively owns all right, title and in and to all Customer Data and all Customer Digital Assets.  Customer hereby grants to Airship a non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-transferable (except pursuant to a permitted assignment under this Agreement), worldwide license during the applicable Subscription Term to receive, copy, modify, display, store, perform and distribute copies of Customer Data for the purpose of providing the Service (including interoperation of the Service with any linked Third Party Applications) and any applicable Professional Services in accordance with this Agreement.  Customer has all the rights or permissions (including, but not limited to, permissions from any Third Party Application providers) necessary to grant Airship the rights in the Customer Data under this Agreement.
  4. Aggregated Usage Data.  Airship aggregates and compiles de-identified Customer Data with de-identified data from Airship’s other customers (“Aggregated Usage Data”). Customer agrees that Airship may use the Aggregated Usage Data to analyze, improve, develop, support and operate the Service, and to prepare and distribute general benchmarking and industry reports derived from Aggregated Usage Data as part of the Service and publish on Airship’s blogs and websites.  For clarity, this Section 5.4 does not give Airship the right to use the Aggregated Usage Data to identify an individual, an End User or Customer as the source of any Aggregated Usage Data, or permit Airship to sell or disclose the raw data included in the Aggregated Usage Data to any third party.  
  5. Feedback. Providing any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations, corrections or other feedback (collectively, “feedback”) is strictly voluntary.  If Customer provides any feedback to Airship, orally or in writing, Customer hereby grants to Airship and its Affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into the Service and/or Professional Services any feedback relating to the Service and/or Professional Services.

6. CONFIDENTIALITY. 

  1. Definition of Confidential Information.  “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure, including, without limitation business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by the Disclosing Party. Customer’s Confidential Information includes Customer Data, other than Notifications. Airship’s Confidential Information includes the Service and all non-public information relating to the Service.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party may disclose the existence and terms of this Agreement, in confidence, to a potential purchaser or successor to any portion of such party’s business resulting from the reorganization, spin-off, or sale or all or a portion of all of the assets of any business division, or group of such party. However, Confidential Information does not include any information that (a) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (b) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (c) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (d) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without breach of any obligations owned to the Disclosing Party.
  2. Protection of Confidential Information.  The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care to protect the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care).  The Receiving Party may disclose Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to its Affiliates or its investors, and their respective officers, directors, principals, employees, attorneys and accountants only to the limited extent necessary to carry out the purpose of this Agreement.  To the extent that the Receiving Party desires to make a disclosure to any persons other than its officers, directors, principals, employees, attorneys and accountants, as condition precedent to disclosure, such recipient must execute a confidentiality agreement substantially similar to this Section before disclosure is made.
  3. 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.
  4. Survival.  Notwithstanding the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, the obligations of confidentiality and non-use set forth in this Section shall extend for a period of five (5) years after such expiration or termination; except that such time limitation shall not apply to trade secrets disclosed under this Agreement.
  5. Destroy Confidential Information.  On the Disclosing Party’s written request, the Receiving Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly destroy all physical copies of Confidential Information in its and its representatives’ possession, and in the case of electronic data, use commercially reasonable efforts to delete or render practically inaccessible by the Receiving Party.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may retain copies of the Confidential Information to the extent required by law or for auditing purposes, or to the extent such copies are electronically stored in accordance with the Receiving Party’s record retention or backup policies, so long as the Confidential Information is kept confidential in accordance with this Agreement.

EACH PARTY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS FOR ANY HARM OR DAMAGES CAUSED BY ANY THIRD-PARTY HOSTING PROVIDERS OR APPLICATIONS.

8. INDEMNIFICATION. 

  1. Airship Indemnification.  Airship shall defend, indemnify and hold Customer harmless from and against any third party claim, demand, suit or proceeding (each, a “Claim”) made or brought against Customer by a third party and any direct damages, liabilities, losses, settlements, judgments, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees and costs) (collectively, “Losses”) related thereto alleging that the Service, as made available by Airship under this Agreement to Customer, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s copyrights, trademarks or trade secret rights under the laws of a country to which the Service is made available by Airship to Customer.  If Airship receives information about an infringement or misappropriation claim related to a Service, Airship may in its discretion and at no cost to Customer (i) modify the Service so that it no longer infringes or misappropriates, (ii) obtain a license for Customer’s continued use of that Service in accordance with this Agreement, or (iii) terminate Customer’s subscriptions for that Service upon 30 days’ written notice and refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of the terminated subscriptions.

  3. Indemnification Process.  The indemnifying party’s obligations are conditioned upon the indemnified party (i) giving the indemnifying Party prompt written notice of the claim (provided however, the failure to give timely notice will not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Agreement except to the extent that such failure materially impairs the ability of the indemnifying party to defend), (ii) granting full control of the defense and settlement to the indemnifying party (provided however, the indemnified party may participate with counsel of its choosing at its own expense), (iii) reasonably cooperating with the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party’s expense with regard to out-of-pocket expenses, in defense and settlement of any such claim, and (iv) not admitting any fault or liability of the indemnifying party or itself.
  4. Exclusive Remedy.  This Section 8 states the indemnifying party’s sole liability to, and the indemnified party’s exclusive remedy against, the other party for any type of third party claim described in this Section 8.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. 

  1. Limitation of Liability.  OTHER THAN A PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS IN SECTION 8, NEITHER PARTY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER HEREUNDER IN THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE INCIDENT.  THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY. HOWEVER, THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS WILL NOT LIMIT CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS.  
  2. Exclusion of Consequential and Related Damages.  OTHER THAN A PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS IN SECTION 8, EACH PARTY AGREES THAT THE CONSIDERATION AIRSHIP IS CHARGING HEREUNDER DOES NOT INCLUDE CONSIDERATION FOR ASSUMPTION BY A PARTY OF THE OTHER PARTY’S INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.  IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR REVENUE, OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, COVER OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILTY WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE STATE OR JURISDICTION.
  3. FOR THE PURPOSE OF CLARITY, AIRSHIP WILL NOT BE LIABLE, AND WILL HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO INDEMNIFY CUSTOMER OR ACCOUNT USER FOR (A) PROHIBITED DATA SENT TO AIRSHIP; (B) VIOLATION OF ANY APPLICABLE LAW BY AIRSHIP WHEN ACTING AT CUSTOMER’S OR ANY ACCOUNT USER’S (AS APPLICABLE) INSTRUCTIONS; AND (C) THE SENDING BY AIRSHIP OF CUSTOMER’ OR ANY ACCOUNT USER’S NOTIFICATIONS.  THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 9 ALLOCATE THE RISKS PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH HEREIN IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.
