Ayasdi grants Customer a royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable worldwide license to use any Deliverable, to the extent necessary to permit Customer to use the Deliverable in connection with the Services during the Term. Customer acknowledges that nothing in this Agreement shall restrict or limit Ayasdi from performing similar services for any third party.
Customer may reasonably request in writing that revisions be made with respect to the Professional Services or deliverables set forth in that SOW (each, a “Change Order”). If a Change Order recites revisions that materially increase the scope of the Professional Services or the effort required to deliver deliverables under the applicable SOW, then within 5 business days after Ayasdi’s receipt of such Change Order, Ayasdi will deliver to Customer a written, revised SOW reflecting Ayasdi’s reasonable determination of the revised Professional Services, deliverables, delivery schedule, and payment schedule, if any, that will apply to the implementation of the revisions. If Customer approves the revised SOW, then the parties will execute it, and upon execution, the revised SOW will supersede the then-existing SOW. If Customer does not approve the revised SOW within 5 business days after its receipt by Customer, the then-existing SOW will remain in full force and effect, and Ayasdi will have no further obligation with respect to the applicable Change Order.
Ayasdi may utilize independent contractors to perform all or part of the Professional Services. Ayasdi will remain solely responsible for the performance of all of the Professional Services that are subcontracted, if applicable.

Unless otherwise agreed, invoices are to be issued in US Dollars.
9. Term, Billing and Renewal
The Pilot Term of this agreement shall begin on the effective date of the first Order Form and/or SOW signed between the parties.

Unless terminated as described in Section 11, upon expiration of the Pilot Term of any Order Form and/or SOW, such Order Form and/or SOW shall automatically terminate.

Customer will be billed, and payments will be made, in U.S. dollars. If Customer believes Customer’s bill is incorrect, Customer must contact Ayasdi in writing within 30 days of the date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.
Customer agrees to provide Ayasdi with accurate billing and contact information, including Customer’s legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact and Administrator. Customer agrees to update this information within 30 days of any change to it.

10. Non-Payment and Suspension
In addition to any other rights granted to Ayasdi herein, Ayasdi reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and Customer’s access to the Service if Customer’s account becomes delinquent and is uncured for a period of thirty (30) days. Delinquent invoices are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, from the date due, plus all expenses involved in the debt’s collection. Customer will continue to be charged for License fees during any period of Service suspension. If Ayasdi initiates termination of this Agreement for cause, as further described in Section 12, Customer will be obligated to pay the balance due on any Order Form(s) and/or SOW(s) then in effect computed in accordance with Section 8 above, provided, however, that any such Order Form and/or SOW shall expire at the end of the Pilot Term. In the event Customer fails to make payments per payment terms as set forth in this Agreement or in any applicable Order Form, and legal enforcement or third party collection efforts by Ayasdi is deemed necessary, Customer agrees to pay all reasonable legal fees and costs incurred by Ayasdi.

Each party (as a “Receiving Party” hereunder) shall not disclose to any third party, any Confidential Information of the other party (as a ‘Disclosing Party” hereunder) provided to such Receiving Party in anticipation of, or in connection with the performance of this Agreement.

As used herein, the term “Confidential Information” refers to any and all financial, technical, commercial, or other information concerning the business and affairs of the Disclosing Party, including, without limitation, any cost or pricing information, contractual terms and conditions, marketing or distribution data, business methods or plans.

Confidential Information does not include information which (I) becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by the Receiving party, (ii) was available to a party on a non-confidential basis prior to its disclosure by the other party or in connection with the performance by such party of its obligations under this Agreement, (iii) becomes lawfully available to a party on a non-confidential basis from an independent third party, or (iv) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use or reference to Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than carrying out its obligations as set forth in this Agreement and shall not disclose Confidential Information to any third party, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party and an agreement in writing from the third party that it will adhere to the confidentiality obligations imposed herein. Third parties shall not include agents of the Receiving Party, employees or affiliates of the Receiving Party, attorneys, accountants, and other professional advisors of the Receiving Party, or potential acquirers of Receiving Party, in each case such person or entity must have a legitimate reason to have access to such Confidential Information and must be under a duty to protect such Confidential information which duty is substantially equivalent to the obligations contained herein. Each Receiving Party’s confidentiality obligations with respect to such Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information shall remain in effect for the Term of this Agreement and for a period of three (3) years after the termination or expiration of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Confidential Information with respect to Customer includes Customer Data, and with respect to Ayasdi includes all pricing terms offered to Customer under any Order Form, the Ayasdi Technology and the results of any evaluation of the Services performed by or on behalf of Customer for purposes of monitoring its availability, performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes. The parties agree that any Non-Disclosure Agreement entered into prior to the applicable Order Form Effective Date shall not limit or reduce each respective Party’s obligations with respect to Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement.

No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between Customer and Ayasdi as a result of this Agreement or use of the Service.
