5.1 Fees. Customer will pay Service fees specified in each Order or SOW. All Orders are noncancelable and Service fees are nonrefundable once paid except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or the applicable Order or SOW. Brandfolder may increase the unit price specified in an Order for any Renewal Term upon written notice to Customer (including via email), provided that if the number of units purchased by Customer for such Renewal Term is equal or greater than the number of units up for renewal, then such notice must be provided at least forty-five (45) days prior to the start of the Renewal Term.
5.2 Payment. Unless otherwise provided in the applicable Order or SOW, Brandfolder will charge Customer for Subscription Service fees on an annual basis in advance and Professional Service fees on a time and materials basis monthly in arrears, and all amounts due under this Agreement are payable in United States dollars net thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice. Customer agrees to promptly notify Brandfolder in writing of any changes to its billing information during any Term. Brandfolder reserves the right to correct any billing errors or mistakes that Brandfolder identifies in an invoice or after a payment is received. Customer shall remit payments by only electronic means (including by wire or ACH or for amounts less than $25,000.00 USD by credit card), with a notation to applicable invoice numbers. Brandfolder may accept payment in any amount without prejudice to Brandfolder's right to recover the balance of the amount due under an Order or SOW or to pursue any other right or remedy. Amounts due to Brandfolder from Customer shall not be withheld or offset against amounts due or alleged to be due to Customer from Brandfolder. Except as prohibited by law, Brandfolder may charge a late fee of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month on past due amounts. If Customer requires a purchase order, vendor registration form, or other documentation, such requirement will in no way relieve, affect, or delay Customer's obligation to pay any amounts due hereunder.
5.3 Taxes. Other than income taxes imposed on Brandfolder, Customer will bear all taxes, duties, VAT, and all other governmental charges (collectively, "Taxes") resulting from this Agreement. If Customer is exempt from any applicable Taxes, Customer will provide evidence reasonably satisfactory to Brandfolder of Customer's tax-exempt status and, after receipt of such evidence, Brandfolder will not charge Customer any Taxes from which it is exempt. If it is determined that payments due under this Agreement are subject to withholding Taxes, Customer shall notify Brandfolder prior to deducting any such Taxes. Customer shall: (a) only withhold amounts required under law; (b) make timely payment to the proper taxing authority of such withheld amount; and (c) provide Brandfolder with proof of such payment within thirty (30) days following that payment.
5.4 Affiliates. Customer's Affiliates may purchase Services under this Agreement by executing an Order or SOW. Each Order or SOW is a separate contract between Brandfolder and the Affiliate that executes it, and such Affiliate will be deemed "Customer" as used in this Agreement with respect to such Order or SOW.
5.5 Resellers. Customer may elect to purchase certain Services through a reseller authorized by Brandfolder ("Reseller"). Customer's obligation for payment to, and its relationship with, any Reseller is between Customer and such Reseller, and Customer must direct any claims for refunds owed hereunder to such Reseller.
6.1 Confidential Information. "Confidential Information" means all non-public, proprietary, business, technical, legal, or financial information disclosed or learned in connection with this Agreement that the Disclosing Party has identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or that, based on the nature of the information or circumstances surrounding its disclosure, the Receiving Party would clearly understand it as confidential. Confidential Information includes Brandfolder Properties with regard to Brandfolder and Customer Content with regard to Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing definition, Confidential Information does not include: (a) information that was generally known to the public at the time disclosed to the Receiving Party; (b) information that becomes generally known to the public (other than through a breach of Section 6 (Confidentiality) by the Receiving Party) after disclosure to the Receiving Party; (c) information that was in the Receiving Party's possession free of any obligation of confidentiality prior to disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (d) information that is rightfully received by the Receiving Party from a third party without any restriction on disclosure; or (e) information that was independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to or use of Disclosing Party's Confidential Information. ALL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED "AS IS." EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER PARTY MAKES ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, CONCERNING THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ITS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
6.2 Use and Disclosure of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party: (a) will not use the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information for any purpose except as permitted under this Agreement; (b) will not disclose, give access to, or distribute any of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information to any third party, except to the extent expressly authorized in this Agreement or a separate written agreement signed by the Disclosing Party; and (c) will take reasonable security precautions (which will be at least as protective as the precautions it takes to preserve its own Confidential Information of a similar nature) to safeguard the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to those of its employees, directors, Affiliates, advisors, agents, contractors, and other representatives ("Representatives") who need to know such information in order to exercise their respective rights and obligations hereunder, provided that each such Representative is bound to protect the Confidential Information by confidentiality obligations substantially as protective as those set forth in this Agreement. The Receiving Party will be responsible for its Representatives' disclosure or use of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information in violation of Section 6 (Confidentiality). The Receiving Party will promptly notify the Disclosing Party in writing upon discovery of any unauthorized disclosure or use of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information, or any other breach of Section 6, by it or its Representatives. The Receiving Party's obligations set forth in Section 6 will remain in effect during the Term and for three (3) years after termination of this Agreement. The disclosure of Confidential Information to the Receiving Party does not grant or convey any right of ownership of such Confidential Information.
6.3 Required Disclosures. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law or legal process, provided, however, the Receiving Party will (unless prohibited by law or legal process): (a) give the Disclosing Party prior written notice of such disclosure to afford the Disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to appear, object, and obtain a protective order or other appropriate relief regarding such disclosure; (b) use diligent efforts to limit disclosure to that which is legally required; and (c) reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party's expense, in its efforts to obtain a protective order or other legally available means of protection.
6.4 Return and Deletion. Upon written request by the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party will, without undue delay: (a) either return or destroy all tangible documents and media in its possession or control that contain the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information; (b) delete electronically stored Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in its possession or control; and (c) certify its compliance with this Section 6.4 in writing. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (x) the Receiving Party will not be obligated to render unrecoverable Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party that is contained in an archived computer system backup made in accordance with the Receiving Party's legal and financial compliance obligations or security and disaster recovery procedure; and (y) Brandfolder shall return and delete Customer Content as set forth in Section 10.4 (Return and Deletion of Customer Content). Any such retained Confidential Information will remain subject to Section 6 (Confidentiality).
6.5 Remedies. The Receiving Party acknowledges that any actual or threatened breach of Section 6 (Confidentiality) may cause irreparable, non-monetary injury to the Disclosing Party, the extent of which may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, the Disclosing Party is entitled to (but not required to) seek injunctive relief to prevent or mitigate any breaches of Section 6 with respect to the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information or any damages that may otherwise result from those breaches.
7. Representations and Warranties.

Upon receipt of Customer's written notice of any alleged failure to comply with this warranty, Brandfolder will use commercially reasonable efforts to cure or correct the failure. If Brandfolder has not cured or corrected the failure within thirty (30) days following its receipt of such notice, then Customer may terminate the applicable Order and Brandfolder shall issue a refund of prepaid fees covering the terminated portion of the Subscription Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this warranty will not apply to any failure due to a defect in or modification of a Subscription Service that is caused or made by Customer, any User, or any person acting at Customer's direction.

8.1 By Brandfolder. Brandfolder will defend Customer and its respective officers, directors, and employees ("Customer Indemnified Parties") from and against any claims, demands, proceedings, investigations, or suits brought by a third party alleging that Customer's use of the Services or Customizations in accordance with this Agreement infringes any third party intellectual property rights (each, a "Claim Against Customer"). Brandfolder will indemnify Customer Indemnified Parties for any finally awarded damages or settlement amount approved by Brandfolder in writing to the extent arising from a Claim Against Customer, and any reasonable attorneys' fees of Customer associated with initially responding to a Claim Against Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Brandfolder will have no obligation under this Section 8.1 to the extent any Claim Against Customer arises from: (a) Customer's use of the Services or Customizations in combination with technology or services not provided by Brandfolder, if the Services or Customizations or use thereof would not infringe without such combination; (b) Customer Content; (c) Brandfolder's compliance with designs, specifications, or instructions provided in writing by Customer if such infringement would not have occurred but for such designs, specifications, or instructions; or (d) use of the Services or Customizations by Customer after notice by Brandfolder to discontinue use. If Customer is enjoined or otherwise prohibited from using any of the Services or Customizations or a portion thereof based on a Claim Against Customer, then Brandfolder will, at Brandfolder's sole expense and option, either: (x) obtain for Customer the right to use the allegedly infringing portions of the Service or Customizations; (y) modify the allegedly infringing portion of the Service or Customizations so as to render it non-infringing without substantially diminishing or impairing its functionality; or (z) replace the allegedly infringing portions of the Service or Customizations with non-infringing items of substantially similar functionality. If Brandfolder determines that the foregoing remedies are not commercially reasonable or possible, then Brandfolder will terminate the applicable Order or SOW and issue a refund of prepaid fees covering the terminated portion of the applicable Service.
8.2 By Customer. Customer will defend Brandfolder and Brandfolder's Affiliates providing the Services, and their respective officers, directors, and employees ("Brandfolder Indemnified Parties") from and against any claims, demands, proceedings, investigations, or suits brought by a third party arising out of Customer Content or Customer's use of the Services or Customizations in violation of applicable law (each, a "Claim Against Brandfolder"). Customer will indemnify Brandfolder Indemnified Parties for any finally awarded damages or settlement amount approved by Customer in writing to the extent arising from a Claim Against Brandfolder, and any reasonable attorneys' fees of Brandfolder associated with initially responding to a Claim Against Brandfolder.
8.3 Conditions. The indemnifying party's obligations under Section 8 (Indemnification) are contingent on the indemnified party: (a) promptly providing written notice of the claim to the indemnifying party, provided that the indemnifying party shall not be excused from its indemnity obligations for the indemnified party's failure to provide prompt notice except to the extent that the indemnifying party is materially prejudiced thereby; (b) giving the indemnifying party sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim, provided that any settlement unconditionally releases the indemnified party of all liability and does not make any admissions on behalf of the indemnified party or include payment of any amounts by the indemnified party; and (c) providing the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party's expense, all reasonable assistance in connection with such claim. The indemnified party may participate in the defense of the claim at its sole cost and expense. Section 8 sets forth the indemnifying party's sole liability to, and the indemnified party's exclusive remedy for, any type of claim or action described in Section 8.
9. Limitations of Liability.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, GOODWILL, OR REVENUES OR FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, COVER, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CLAIM OF ANY NATURE, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN GIVEN ADVANCE NOTICE OF SUCH POSSIBLE DAMAGES OR IF A PARTY'S REMEDY OTHERWISE FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EACH PARTY'S ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO BRANDFOLDER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE DATE ON WHICH THE LIABILITY AROSE. THE EXISTENCE OF MORE THAN ONE CLAIM WILL NOT ENLARGE THIS LIMIT.
THE FOREGOING EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITS IN THIS SECTION 9 SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY OR OBLIGATIONS ARISING UNDER SECTIONS 1.2 (RESTRICTIONS) OR 8 (INDEMNIFICATION), INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION BY A PARTY OF THE OTHER PARTY'S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, OR CUSTOMER'S OBLIGATION TO PAY FOR SERVICES OR TAXES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

Orders will remain in effect for the Term of the Services specified in such Order. EACH SERVICE WITH A SUBSCRIPTION-BASED TERM ON AN ORDER WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR SUCCESSIVE ONE (1) YEAR RENEWAL TERMS (each, a "Renewal Term") UNLESS THE PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE IN THE ORDER OR A PARTY PROVIDES THE OTHER PARTY WRITTEN NOTICE (INCLUDING VIA EMAIL) OF NON-RENEWAL AT LEAST THIRTY (30) DAYS PRIOR TO THE END OF THE THEN-CURRENT TERM. For the avoidance of doubt, any purchases of non-subscription or one-time Services made via an Order will not automatically renew. Each SOW will remain in effect for the period specified therein.

Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason: (a) all Orders and SOWs under this Agreement will terminate; and (b) all rights and obligations of the parties hereunder will cease (except as set forth in Section 10.6 (Survival)).

If Brandfolder terminates a Service or this Agreement for Customer's uncured breach pursuant to Section 10.2, Customer shall pay any outstanding amounts payable under this Agreement for the Term applicable to any terminated Service and, if applicable, Partner Apps. Customer will remain obligated to pay for Professional Services rendered through, or payable as of, the effective date such Professional Services are terminated.
10.4 Return and Deletion of Customer Content. At any time during the Term, Customer may download a backup copy of Customer Content (with file attachments in their native formats and all other Customer Content in an industry standard export format) from an online Service by using a self-service feature, or may request such backup copy by written notice to Brandfolder if such feature is not available. Upon Customer's written request at the time of termination or expiration of any Term, Customer's SysAdmin will be allowed read-only access to an online Service for thirty (30) days following such date of termination or expiration for the sole purpose of downloading a backup copy of Customer Content. Within one hundred eighty (180) days following termination or expiration of any Term, Brandfolder will delete and render Customer Content unrecoverable and, upon Customer's written request, certify such process in writing.

Subject to the foregoing and notwithstanding any prohibitions on transferability under this Agreement, the assigning party shall notice the non-assigning party of any permitted assignment and this Agreement and any Orders or SOWs will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and their permitted assigns.
11.7 Force Majeure. Neither party is liable for delay or default under this Agreement if caused by conditions beyond its reasonable control, provided that the party suffering from any such conditions shall use reasonable efforts to mitigate against the effects of such conditions.
11.8 Amendment; Waiver. Unless otherwise expressly stated herein, this Agreement and any Orders or SOWs may be modified only by a written agreement executed by an authorized representative of each party.

11.9 Enforceability. If any provision of this Agreement or any Order or SOW is held to be unenforceable, then that provision is to be construed either by modifying it to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable (if permitted by law) or disregarding it (if not permitted by law), and the rest of this Agreement or the relevant Order or SOW is to remain in effect as written. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if modifying or disregarding the unenforceable provision would result in failure of an essential purpose of this Agreement or any Order or SOW, the entire Agreement or the relevant Order or SOW will be considered null and void.
11.10 Governing Law. This Agreement and any Orders and SOWs are governed by the laws of the State of Washington, without regard to its conflicts of law rules, and each party hereby consents to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in Seattle, Washington for any dispute arising out of this Agreement or any Orders or SOWs.

If Customer objects to the revisions, Customer may terminate any Orders governed by this Agreement by providing written notice to Brandfolder prior to the effective date of revision, provided that Customer will remain obligated to pay amounts due to Brandfolder under such Orders and will not receive a refund of prepaid fees. Customer's termination will be effective upon Brandfolder's written acknowledgement of such termination, and in no event later than thirty (30) days from Brandfolder's receipt of Customer's termination notice.
