3.2. Usage Limitations. The Services may be subject to other limitations, including, without limitation, limits on disk storage space or bandwidth usage.

4. FEES AND PAYMENT FOR SERVICES 

4.1. User Fees. You shall pay all fees specified in all Order Forms hereunder. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars (ii) fees are based on services purchased and not actual usage, (iii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iv) the number of User subscriptions purchased can be decreased up to six times during a Contract Term; provided, however, that the number of User subscriptions may not be reduced below 80% of the User subscriptions documented in the original Order Form. Subscription fees are based on monthly periods that begin on the subscription start date and each monthly anniversary thereof; therefore, fees for User subscriptions added in the middle of a monthly period will be charged for that full monthly period and the monthly periods remaining in the Contract Term. 

4.2. Invoicing and Payment. You will provide QNECTUS with valid Account Information and are responsible for updating this information as appropriate to ensure it remains valid.  By providing QNECTUS such Account Information, You authorize QNECTUS to charge such Account for all Services listed in the Order Form for Subscription Term and any Renewal Term(s) as set forth in Section 10.2 (Term of Purchased User Subscriptions) and in the Order Form. Such charges shall be made in advance, either monthly or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. You are responsible for (i) any fees charged by Your credit card company or bank for any reason, including without limitation overdraft protection and exceeding Your credit card limit, and (ii) all of QNECTUS’s reasonable attorney fees and other costs incurred by QNECTUS to collect any fees or charges due QNECTUS under this Agreement following Your breach of any of the provisions of this Section 4.2 (Invoicing and Payment).

 

4.3. Overdue Charges. If any charges are not processed successfully by the due date for

any reason other than QNECTUS’s negligence, then QNECTUS may, at the discretion of QNECTUS and without limiting QNECTUS’s rights under Section 4.4 (Suspension of Service and Acceleration): (a) charge interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid, and (b) condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in the current Order Form. 

4.4. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Services from QNECTUS is not paid when due or if there is any breach by You of any of the covenants or agreements contained herein, QNECTUS may, at QNECTUS’s option and without limiting QNECTUS’s other rights and remedies herein: (i) accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, (ii) suspend any Services to You until such amounts are paid in full, (iii) render any Equipment inoperative, and (iv) remove any Equipment from Your Premises. The suspension of Services or removal or rendering inoperative of any Equipment shall not in any way be construed as a waiver by QNECTUS of any other rights contained herein, including without limitation the rights in Section 4.3 (Overdue Charges). 

4.5. Taxes. Unless otherwise stated, QNECTUS’s fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including without limitation value added, sales, or use taxes, assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with the Services hereunder. If QNECTUS has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this paragraph, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to, and paid by, You unless You provide QNECTUS with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For the avoidance of doubt, QNECTUS is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on QNECTUS’s income and property.

 4.6. Damage to Equipment. You are responsible for loss of, damage to, or any modifications made to, any of the Equipment without the consent of QNECTUS. In the event that the Equipment is lost, stolen, damaged, or anyone has altered, attached anything to, removed, or tampered with the Equipment without the consent of QNECTUS, You agree to pay QNECTUS the full retail value of the Equipment that is lost, stolen, damaged, or altered in any way without QNECTUS’s consent upon receipt of an invoice. The foregoing sentence shall not be construed as in any way limiting QNECTUS’s other rights and remedies contained herein. 

5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS

5.1. Reservation of Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, QNECTUS reserves all rights, title and interest in and to the Services, including without limitation all related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to You hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein. 

5.2. Restrictions. You shall not (i) permit any third party to access the Services except as permitted herein or in an Order Form, (ii) reverse engineer the Services, or (iii) access the Services in order to (a) build a competitive product or service, or (b) copy any features, functions or graphics of the Services. 

5.3. Allocation of Intellectual Property Rights. As between QNECTUS and You, You exclusively own all rights, title and interest in and to all of Your Data. QNECTUS shall own all rights, title and interest in and to any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations or other feedback provided by You or Your Users, relating to the operation of the Services. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction determines that QNECTUS is not entitled to the ownership rights described in the preceding sentence, QNECTUS shall have a royalty-free, worldwide, transferable, sublicenseable, irrevocable, perpetual license to use or incorporate into the Services any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations or other feedback provided by You or Your Users, relating to the operation of the Services. 

6. CONFIDENTIALITY 

6.1. Protection of Confidential Information. Except as otherwise permitted in writing by the Disclosing Party, (i) the Receiving Party shall use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but in no event less than reasonable care) not to disclose or use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and (ii) the Receiving Party shall limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its employees, contractors and agents who need such access for purposes consistent with this Agreement.

6.2. Protection of Your Data. Without limiting the above, QNECTUS shall maintain appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Your Data. QNECTUS shall not (a) modify Your Data, (b) disclose Your Data except as compelled by law in accordance with Section 6.3 (Compelled Disclosure) or as expressly permitted in writing by You, or (c) access Your Data except to provide the Services or prevent or address service or technical problems, or at Your request in connection with customer support matters. For the avoidance of doubt, this paragraph shall not in any way be construed as creating any liability for QNECTUS in the event that there is a loss of Your Data and damages result. 

6.3. Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information  of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such 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 such Confidential Information.

12.6. Assignment. You may not assign, convey, transfer, or sublicense any of Your rights or obligations under this Agreement, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of QNECTUS. QNECTUS’s sole remedy for any purported assignment by You in breach of this paragraph shall be, at QNECTUS’s election, termination of this Agreement upon written notice to You.

12.7. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including without limitation all exhibits and addenda hereto and all Order Forms, which are incorporated into this Agreement by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter.
