Use of Beta Services is permitted only for Customer’s internal evaluation during the period designated by Archipelago (or if not designated, thirty (30) days).

3.1. Fees and Payment. Customer shall pay amounts set forth in an applicable Order Form (“Fees”) and any other amounts due hereunder as set forth in this Section. Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form, Subscription Fees are based on annual periods that begin on the Subscription start date and each annual anniversary of such date thereafter. Customer’s Subscription Fees are set forth in the applicable Order Form and are payable annually in advance within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to Archipelago. Customer shall pay all Fees when due and, if such Fees are being paid via credit card or other electronic means, Customer authorizes Archipelago to charge such Fees using Customer’s selected payment method. If Customer disputes any part of an invoice in good faith, Customer shall provide Archipelago with notice and detail of the dispute prior to the invoice due date and pay the undisputed portion by the invoice due date Customer remains liable for and will promptly pay any disputed amounts so withheld and later determined to be due. Fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and Fees paid are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly stated herein. If Customer requires the use of a purchase order or purchase order number, Customer shall provide the purchase order number at the time of purchase.
3.2. Suspension for Failure to Pay. Archipelago reserves the right to suspend Customer’s account, in addition to all of its other available rights and remedies, in the event that Customer’s account becomes overdue and is not brought current within ten (10) business days following written notice (email acceptable) from Archipelago that such account is past due. Late and/or unpaid amounts shall be subject to interest at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum permitted by law plus all costs of collection. Suspension shall not relieve Customer’s obligation to pay amounts due. Archipelago will not exercise its rights under this subsection if Customer has disputed the applicable charges in writing reasonably and in good faith as provided above and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
3.3. Taxes. Fees do not include any local, state, federal or foreign taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to sales, use, excise, value-added, goods and services, consumption, withholding, and other similar taxes or duties (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases hereunder (excluding taxes based on Archipelago’s net income). If a payment by Customer is subject to withholding taxes or any other taxes in accordance with applicable law, Customer shall increase the fees payable to Archipelago by an amount sufficient to fully offset the impact of such Taxes, such that Archipelago will receive the full amounts due under this Agreement. Customer agrees to use its best efforts to determine whether the withholding Tax can be reduced or eliminated under an applicable tax treaty, and Archipelago agrees to act in good faith to provide documentation necessary to evidence qualification under any such tax treaty. If applicable, Customer shall remit any withholding to the relevant authority on a timely basis and provide to Archipelago documentation to evidence payment of such withholding Taxes. Customer shall be responsible for any Taxes, penalties, or interest that may apply based on Archipelago’s failure to charge appropriate tax due to incomplete or incorrect information provided by Customer. If Customer is exempt from certain Taxes, Customer shall provide proof of such exemption to Archipelago without undue delay upon execution of the applicable Order Form.
3.4. Authorized Reseller. For any Services acquired by Customer through a third party expressly authorized by Archipelago for such purpose (for purposes hereof, an “Authorized Reseller”), Sections 3.1 through 3.3 above shall not apply (except for Archipelago’s suspension rights under Section 3.2 above). While all other terms of this Agreement shall continue to apply exclusively to Archipelago and Customer as stated herein, Customer shall contract directly with the applicable Authorized Reseller with respect to payment for the purchase of the Services provided hereunder.
4.1. Term. The term of this Agreement commences on the Effective Date and shall, unless earlier terminated per Section 4.2 below, remain in effect until all Subscriptions to the Services granted in accordance with this Agreement have expired or been terminated (“Term”).
4.2. Termination. (a) Either Party may terminate this Agreement or any Order Form hereunder by written notice to the other Party in the event that: (i) such other Party materially breaches this Agreement and does not cure such breach within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice detailing the scope and nature of such breach from the non-breaching Party, except termination will take effect upon notice in the event of a breach of Section 2.3 (Usage Restrictions); or (ii) such other Party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors and such proceedings are not dismissed within sixty (60) days. (b) Customer may terminate this Agreement on written notice to Archipelago if Customer does not agree to changes made by Archipelago to this Agreement as first set forth in this Agreement above by delivering to Archipelago written notice of such termination within thirty (30) days of the date Customer first receives notice from Archipelago of such change made to this Agreement.
4.3. Treatment of Customer Data Following Expiration or Termination. Customer agrees that following expiration or termination of this Agreement, Archipelago may immediately deactivate Customer’s account(s) associated with the Agreement. Upon written request by Customer received by Archipelago within thirty (30) days after the effective date of expiration or termination, Archipelago shall make Customer Data available to Customer for export. After such thirty (30) day period, Archipelago shall have no obligation to maintain or provide any Customer Data and shall thereafter, unless legally prohibited, be entitled to delete all Customer Data in its systems or otherwise in its possession or under its control.
4.4. Effect of Termination. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, all Subscriptions and any other rights granted to Customer under this Agreement shall immediately terminate, and Customer shall immediately cease all use of the Services. Upon any termination by Customer pursuant to Section 4.2 above, Archipelago shall refund to Customer a prorated amount of prepaid, unused Fees applicable to the remaining portion of the Subscription Term measured from the effective date of termination. Upon any termination by Archipelago pursuant to Section 4.2 above, Customer shall pay any unpaid Fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term. In no event will any termination relieve Customer of the obligation to pay any Fees accrued or payable to Archipelago for the Services in the period prior to the effective date of termination.

Archipelago shall defend Customer, its employees, directors, officers and Affiliates (“Customer Indemnitees”) from and against any claim, demand, suite, or proceeding (“Claim”) made or brought against a Customer Indemnitee by a third party to the extent alleging that Customer’s authorized use of the Services infringes or misappropriates any copyright, trade secret, U.S. patent, or trademark right of such third party (each, a “Claim Against Customer”), and Archipelago shall indemnify and hold Customer Indemnitees harmless against any damages, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and costs finally awarded against Customer as a result of, or for any amounts paid by the Customer under an Archipelago-approved settlement of, a Claim Against Customer; provided, however, in no event will Archipelago have any obligations or liability under this Section 9.1 to the extent a Claim Against Customer arises from: (a) use of the Services other than as permitted under this Agreement; (b) use of the Services in a modified form or in combination with products, services, content, or data not furnished to Customer by Archipelago; or (c) Customer’s directions or specifications. If the Services become, or in Archipelago’s reasonable judgment are likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement, then Archipelago may in its sole discretion: (a) obtain the right, at Archipelago’s expense, for Customer to continue using the Service; (b) provide a non-infringing functionally equivalent replacement; or (c) modify the Services so that they are no longer infringing. If Archipelago, in its sole and reasonable judgment, determines that none of the above options are commercially reasonable or practicable, then Archipelago may suspend or terminate Customer’s use of the Services and in such case shall provide Customer with a prorated refund of any prepaid, unused Fees applicable to the remainder of the applicable Subscription Term. This Section 9.1 sets out Customer’s exclusive remedy and Archipelago’s sole liability regarding infringement of third party Intellectual Property Rights .
9.2. Indemnification By Customer. Customer shall defend Archipelago, its employees, contractors, directors, officers, and Affiliates (“Archipelago Indemnitees”) from and against any Claims made or brought against an Archipelago Indemnitee by a third party to the extent arising out of or relating to Customer Data, or any unauthorized use of the Services or use of the results thereof by Customer or its Users (each, a “Claim Against Archipelago”), and Customer shall indemnify and hold Archipelago Indemnitees harmless against any damages, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and costs finally awarded against Archipelago as a result of, or for any amounts paid by Archipelago under a Customer-approved settlement of, a Claim Against Archipelago.
9.3. Indemnification Process. The indemnifying Party’s obligations in this Section 9 are subject to receiving from the indemnitee: (a) prompt written notice of the claim, (b) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, and settlement of the claim and (c) all reasonably requested cooperation and information at the indemnifying Party’s expense for reasonable out-of-pocket costs. Failure to give prompt notice shall not constitute a waiver of the indemnitee’s right to indemnification and shall relieve the indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Section 9 only to the extent that the indemnifying Party’s rights are materially prejudiced by such failure or delay. The indemnifying Party shall not settle any claim without the indemnitee’s prior written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) if settlement would require the indemnitee to admit fault or take or refrain from taking any action or otherwise imposes any obligation or liability on the indemnitee.
10.1. Relationship of the Parties. The Parties are independent contractors. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the Parties. Each Party will be solely responsible for payment of all compensation owed to its employees, as well as all employment-related taxes.

10.3. Anti-Corruption. Customer acknowledges and agrees it has received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from an employee or agent of the other Party in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction.
10.4. Waiver. No failure or delay by either Party in exercising any right under this Agreement will constitute a waiver of that right.
10.5. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision will be deemed null and void, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in effect.
10.6. Assignment. Neither Party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the other Party’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld); provided, however, either Party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (including all Order Forms) without the other Party’s consent in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets or voting securities.. This Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.

If, after good faith negotiations the Parties are unable to resolve the dispute, the Parties agree that, except as expressly stated herein, any and all disputes arising out of or in any way relating to this Agreement, including its existence, validity or termination, shall be resolved according to California law and exclusively by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator with the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (JAMS) and pursuant to the then existing arbitration rules at JAMS. If the Parties cannot agree upon selection of an arbitrator, then JAMS shall appoint an arbitrator experienced in the enterprise software industry. The place of the arbitration will be San Francisco, California. The arbitration will be conducted in English. The arbitrator shall provide detailed written findings of fact and conclusions of law in support of any award. Judgment upon any such award may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Parties agree that damages may be an inadequate remedy in the case of any actual or threatened breach of certain terms of this Agreement (including but not limited to unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information, infringement of a Party’s Intellectual Property Rights, and enforcement of an arbitration award hereunder), and that either Party shall be entitled to seek equitable relief (without the requirement of posting a bond or other security) in any court of competent jurisdiction in addition to any other remedies such Party may have under this Agreement.
10.9. Notices. Archipelago may give general notices related to the Services that are applicable to all customers by email, text, in-app notifications, or by posting them on the Archipelago website or through the Services, and such electronic notices shall be deemed to satisfy any legal requirement that such notices be made in writing.

10.12. Force Majeure. Neither Party will be liable for delayed, inadequate, or failed performance of its obligations hereunder (other than for non-payment) if such delay or failure arises from any cause or condition beyond the reasonable control of the affected Party, including but not limited to natural disasters, fire, flood, epidemic, pandemic, act of God, civil disturbance, act of a public enemy or terrorist, act of any military, civil, regulatory, or governmental authority, change in law or regulation, labor conditions, interruption or failure of the Internet or any utility service, denial of service or ransomware attacks, unavailability of supplies, or any other cause, whether similar or dissimilar to any of the foregoing that could not have been prevented by such Party with reasonable care (each a “Force Majeure Event”).
