Billing and Payment.
4.1. Monthly and Annual Plans. Subscriptions for Software deployed in the Customer’s Computing Environment are offered on an annual basis and Subscriptions for the SaaS Service are offered either on a monthly subscription basis (e.g., Teleport Team) or an annual subscription basis.
4.2. Renewals. Except as otherwise specified in the Sales Order, unless either Party cancels Customer’s Subscription prior to expiration of the current Subscription Term, Customer’s Subscription will automatically renew for another Subscription Term of a period equal to Customer’s initial Subscription Term. Customer will provide any notice of non-renewal through the means Teleport designates, which may include settings in the Customer’s account or contacting the Teleport support team. The cancellation of a Subscription means that Customer will not be charged for the next billing cycle, but Customer will not receive any refunds or credits for amounts that have already been charged. Unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Sales Order, the Software will be charged at the then-current rates.
4.3. Payment. Customer will pay all fees by the due dates and in the currency specified in the applicable invoice. Late payments are subject to a charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less, and may be assessed by Teleport in its discretion. Customer agrees that Teleport may bill Customer’s credit card or other payment method for renewals, additional users, overages to set limits or scopes of use, and unpaid fees, as applicable. All fees are non-refundable except as expressly provided in these Terms.
4.3.1. Self-Service Plans. If Customer purchases a monthly Subscription to the SaaS Service (e.g., Teleport Team), all payments under these Terms will be made and processed using a third party processing platform (“PSP”) as indicated on the invoice. Customer may be required to register and create an account with the PSP. Payment processing services for the SaaS Service provided by the PSP are subject to the PSP’s terms and conditions, terms of service, or similar contract (“PSP Agreement”). By agreeing to these Terms, Customer agrees to be bound by the PSP Agreement. As a condition of Teleport enabling payment processing services through the PSP, Customer agrees to provide Teleport accurate and complete information, and Customer authorizes Teleport to share it and transaction information related to Customer’s use of the payment processing services provided by the PSP. Teleport is not a party to the PSP Services Agreement as the PSP Services Agreement is a contract between Customer and the PSP. Accordingly, Teleport has no obligation, responsibility or liability to Customer any User under the PSP Services Agreement.
4.4. Taxes. Customer is responsible for any sales, use, duty, goods and services tax, value-added, withholding or similar taxes, tariffs, levies, duties and other governmental charges whether domestic or foreign (collectively, “Taxes”); other than Teleport’s income. If Customer is required by law to withhold any Taxes, Customer must provide Teleport with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation, and all fees are payable hereunder without any deduction for such withheld Taxes or otherwise. If Teleport has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by Customer, unless Customer provides Teleport with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
4.5. Purchase Order. If the Customer requires the use of a purchase order, the Customer is responsible for providing the applicable purchase order at the time of purchase. No provision of any purchase order or other business form employed by Customer will supersede or supplement the terms of these Terms, and any such document relating to these Terms will be for administrative purposes only and will have no legal effect.
4.6. Suspension and Acceleration. If any fees owing by Customer under these Terms is thirty (30) days or more overdue, (or ten (10) or more days overdue in the case of amounts Customer has authorized Teleport to charge to Customer’s credit card), Teleport may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s unpaid fee obligations under these Terms so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend access to the Software and SaaS Services (as applicable) until such amounts are paid in full, provided that, other than for customers paying by credit card or direct debit whose payment has been declined, Teleport will give Customer at least ten (10) days’ prior notice that its account is overdue, in accordance with Section 12.8 (Notices) for billing notices, before suspending services to Customer.
4.7. Audit. During the Term, Teleport may audit Customer's use of the Software to confirm its compliance with these Terms. Teleport will provide at least thirty (30) days prior notice and such audit will be conducted to not unreasonably interfere with Customer business activities. Teleport may conduct no more than one (1) audit in each six (6) month period during a Subscription Plan Term, which will be conducted during normal business hours. If an audit reveals non-compliance with these Terms, Teleport may invoice Customer for any past or ongoing excessive use, the reasonable costs of the audit and Customer will pay the invoice promptly after receipt. This remedy is without prejudice to any other remedies available to Teleport at law or equity or under these Terms.
5.1. Reservation of Rights. Subject to the licenses granted herein, Teleport retains all right, title and interest (including, but not limited, to intellectual property rights) in and to the Licensed Materials, Product Previews, and all improvements, enhancements or modifications to the foregoing, and anything developed and delivered under these Terms, including without limitation Usage Data.
5.2. Feedback. Customer may provide Teleport comments or suggestions for enhancements, improvements, new features, functionality, information, ideas or other feedback (collectively, “Feedback”) with respect to the Licensed Materials and/or Product Previews. Teleport will have full discretion to determine whether or not to proceed with the development of any requested enhancements, improvements, new features or functionality. Customer hereby grants Teleport a worldwide, perpetual, non-revocable, sublicensable, royalty-free right and license to use, copy, disclose, license, distribute, and exploit any Feedback in any format and in any manner without any obligation, payment, or restriction based on intellectual property rights or otherwise. Nothing in these Terms limits Teleport’s right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products, whether incorporating Feedback or otherwise.

6.5. Warranty Exclusions.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW AND EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, TELEPORT DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE AS TO THE RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, QUALITY, SUITABILITY, AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY LICENSED MATERIALS AND SERVICES, OR THAT (A) THE USE OF ANY LICENSED MATERIALS WILL BE SECURE, TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE; (B) THE LICENSED MATERIALS WILL OPERATE IN COMBINATION WITH ANY OTHER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM, OR DATA; (C) THE LICENSED MATERIALS AND SERVICES WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATION; OR (D) ERRORS OR DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED. CUSTOMER MAY HAVE OTHER STATUTORY RIGHTS, BUT THE DURATION OF STATUTORILY REQUIRED WARRANTIES, IF ANY, WILL BE LIMITED TO THE SHORTEST PERIOD PERMITTED BY LAW.
7.1. Definition. “Confidential Information” means any nonpublic information disclosed by either Party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other Party (“Receiving Party”) or accessible to the Receiving Party that is designated as confidential at the time of disclosure or that, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, reasonably should be considered as confidential, including without limitation technical data, trade secrets, know-how, research, inventions, processes, designs, drawings, strategic roadmaps, plans, designs and architecture, security information, pricing and cost information, and other technical, financial or business information. The Licensed Materials are Confidential Information of Teleport. Confidential Information will not, however, include any information which: (a) was publicly known or made generally available to the public prior to the time of disclosure; (b) becomes publicly known or made generally available after disclosure through no fault of the Receiving Party; (c) is in the possession of the Receiving Party, without restriction as to use or disclosure, at the time of disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (d) was lawfully received, without restriction as to use or disclosure, from a third party (who does not have an obligation of confidentiality or restriction on use itself); or (e) is developed by the Receiving Party independently from these Terms and without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. Except for rights expressly granted in these Terms, each Party reserves all rights in and to its Confidential Information.
7.2. Obligations. The Receiving Party will maintain the confidentiality of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and will avoid disclosure and unauthorized use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information using reasonable precautions. The Receiving Party will protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care that a prudent person would exercise to protect its own confidential information of a like nature, and to prevent the unauthorized, negligent, or inadvertent use, disclosure, or publication thereof or access thereto. The Receiving Party will restrict Confidential Information to individuals who need to know such Confidential Information and who are bound to confidentiality obligations at least as protective as the restrictions described in this Section. Except as necessary for the proper use of the Licensed Materials, the exercise of a Party’s rights under these Terms, performance of a Party’s obligations under these Terms or as otherwise permitted under these Terms, neither Party will use Confidential Information of the other Party for any purpose except in fulfilling its obligations or exercising its rights under these Terms. The Receiving Party will promptly notify the Disclosing Party if it becomes aware of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, and reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party in attempts to limit disclosure.
7.3. Compelled Disclosure. If the Receiving Party is requested or compelled by applicable law or order of a court of competent jurisdiction, regulatory authority, or governmental department or agency, to disclose any of Disclosing Party's Confidential Information, Receiving Party’s disclosure of such Confidential Information shall not constitute a breach of these Terms; provided that Receiving Party provides Disclosing Party with reasonably prompt written notice, to the extent legally permitted, so that Disclosing Party may seek an appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with this provision. The Receiving Party shall reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of Confidential Information. Upon disclosure, Receiving Party shall (a) disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that is necessary to comply with the applicable law or order; and (b) assert the privileged and confidential nature of Confidential Information against the Party seeking disclosure. Notwithstanding any provisions herein, if Customer is a government agency or entity, Customer will comply with all laws applicable to it with respect to disclosure of public information.
7.4. Injunctive Relief. The Receiving Party acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations hereunder, which breach may result in irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party, and therefore, that upon any such breach or any threat thereof, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever remedies it might have at law.
Additional SaaS Service Obligations and Responsibilities. This Section applies to Subscriptions for Software deployed via the SaaS Service only.
8.1. Acceptable Use.

8.1.2. Teleport may suspend Customer’s or a User’s right to access or use any portion or all of the SaaS Service immediately upon notice to Customer (a) if Teleport, after reasonable due diligence given the nature and severity of the issue, reasonably determines that (i) Customer or a User’s use of the SaaS Service poses a material risk to the security or operation of Teleport’s systems, the SaaS Service or the systems or data of any other customer, or (ii) Customer or a User’s use of the SaaS Service violates these Terms or is illegal or fraudulent; or (b) Customer fails to pay any undisputed amounts within thirty (30) days after notice of past due amounts. To the extent reasonably practicable, Teleport will limit the suspension of the SaaS Service pursuant to subsection (a) as needed to mitigate the applicable risk. Teleport will promptly restore the SaaS Service to Customer upon resolution of the issue and/or payment of the outstanding amounts (as applicable).
8.2. Customer Data.
8.2.1. Customer is and will continue to be the sole and exclusive owner of all Customer Data and other Confidential Information of Customer. Nothing in these Terms will be construed or interpreted as granting to Teleport any rights of ownership or any other proprietary rights in or to the Customer Data.
8.2.2. Customer will obtain all necessary consents, authorizations and rights and provide all necessary notices and disclosures in order to provide Customer Data to Teleport and for Teleport to use Customer Data in the performance of its obligations in accordance with the terms of these Terms, including any access or transmission to third parties with whom Customer shares or permits access to Customer Data.
8.2.3. Customer hereby grants to Teleport a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right and license to copy, distribute, display, host, process, store, transmit, and use Customer Data as necessary for Teleport to provide the Software, Services and perform its obligations and exercise its rights under these Terms.
8.3. Usage Data. Nothing in these Terms will restrict (a) Teleport’s use of Usage Data or data derived from Usage Data that does not identify or permit, alone or in conjunction with other data, identification, association, or correlation of or with Customer, its Affiliates, or Users; or (b) either Party’s use of any data, records, files, content or other information related to any third party that is collected, received, stored or maintained by a Party independently from these Terms.

Limitations of Liability.
9.1. Consequential Damages Waiver. EXCEPT FOR EXCLUDED CLAIMS, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, RELIANCE, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, REPUTATIONAL HARM, LOSS OF DATA, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS), EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE.

9.3. Excluded Claims. “Excluded Claims” mean (a) amounts owed by Customer under any Sales Order; (b) either Party’s indemnification obligations in Section 10 (Indemnification); (c) Customer’s breach of Section 2.3 (Restrictions); and (d) a Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct in the performance of its obligations under these Terms.
9.4. Nature of Claims and Failure of Essential Purpose. The Parties agree that the waivers and limitations specified in this Section apply regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise and will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in these Terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
10.1. Teleport Indemnity. Teleport will, at its expense, defend Customer and its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives (collectively “Customer Indemnified Parties”) from and against any claim, action, proceeding or lawsuit brought by a third party (“Claims”) alleging that the Licensed Materials, when used as authorized under these Terms, infringes any third party patent, trademark or copyright, or misappropriate any third party trade secret. Teleport will indemnify Customer Indemnified Parties for any damages and costs finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to in a settlement agreement executed by Teleport.
10.2. Customer Indemnity. Customer will, at its expense, defend Teleport and its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives (collectively “Teleport Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all Claims arising out of, resulting from or in connection with Customer’s use or misuse of the Licensed Materials and/or Services, including without limitation (a) Claims by Users; (b) unauthorized disclosure or use of personal information, including without limitation, information in Customer Data; or (c) infringement or misappropriation of any copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret by the Customer Data or Teleport’s permitted use thereof. Customer will indemnify Teleport Indemnified Parties for any damages and costs finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to in a settlement executed by Customer. Notwithstanding any provisions herein, if Customer is a government entity, this Section will not apply except as permitted by applicable law.
10.3. Process. The Party seeking indemnification (“Indemnified Party”) will give the other Party (“Indemnifying Party”) prompt written notice of the Claim for which it seeks indemnification, provided that failure or delay in providing such notice will not release the Indemnifying Party from any obligations hereunder except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by such failure. The Indemnified Party will give the Indemnifying Party their reasonable cooperation in the defense of each Claim for which indemnity is sought, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense. An Indemnified Party may participate in the defense at its own expense. The Indemnifying Party will control the defense or settlement of the Claim, provided that the Indemnifying Party, without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent (a) will not enter into any settlement that; (i) includes any admission of fault by the Indemnified Party; (ii) imposes any financial obligations on the Indemnified Party that Indemnified Party is not obligated to pay under this Section; (iii) imposes any non-monetary obligations on any Indemnified Party; and (iv) does not include a full and unconditional release of any Indemnified Party; and (b) will not consent to the entry of judgment, except for a dismissal with prejudice of any Claim settled as described in (a). The Indemnifying Party will ensure that any settlement into which it enters for any Claim is made confidential, except where not permitted by applicable law. THIS SECTION SETS FORTH THE INDEMNIFIED PARTY’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF THE INDEMNIFYING PARTY WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM.
10.4. Infringement Remedy. If Customer’s use of the Licensed Materials is (or in Teleport’s opinion is likely to be) enjoined, whether by court order or by settlement, or if Teleport determines such actions are reasonably necessary to avoid liability, Teleport may, at its option and in its discretion (a) procure the right or license for Customer’s continued use of the Licensed Materials in accordance with these Terms; (b) modify or replace the Licensed Materials so that the modified or replaced Licensed Materials are reasonably comparable in functionality and do not infringe, misappropriate or violate any third party copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret; or (c) terminate Customer’s right to continue using the Licensed Materials and refund to Customer on a pro-rata basis any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term in the applicable Sales Order as of the effective date of termination.
