You also acknowledge that we are not acting as your Business Associate or subcontractor (as such terms are defined and used in HIPAA) and that the Hosted Services are not HIPAA compliant. “HIPAA” means the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as amended and supplemented. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, we have no liability under this Agreement for Sensitive Data. In light of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 issued by the European Union, we confirm that we will not use any confidential information received through the usage of any of our products for any purpose whatsoever subject to Section 13 – Confidentiality, of this agreement.

6.9 REMOVALS AND SUSPENSION: We have no obligation to monitor any content uploaded to the Hosted Services. Nonetheless, if we deem such action necessary based on your violation of this Agreement or in response to takedown requests that we receive following any Copyright and Trademark Violations, we may (1) remove Your Data from the Hosted Services or (2) suspend your access to the Hosted Services. We will generally alert you when we take such action and give you a reasonable opportunity to cure your breach, but if we determine that your actions endanger the operation of the Hosted Service or other users, we may suspend your access immediately without notice. You will continue to be charged for the Hosted Service during any suspension period. We have no liability to you for removing or deleting Your Data from or suspending your access to any Hosted Services as described in this section. We reserve the right at all times (but will have no obligation) to remove or refuse to distribute any User Content and to terminate users or reclaim usernames. We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce these Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of our users and the public.

7.0 SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE: We will provide support and maintenance services (“Support and Maintenance”) to all your properties during the period for which they have paid the applicable fee for their subscriptions. Support and Maintenance for Software includes access to New Releases, if and when available. “New Releases” are bug fixes, patches, major or minor releases, or any other changes, enhancements, or modifications to the Software that we make generally commercially available. Our products may be unavailable from time to time due to maintenance or malfunction of computer or network equipment or other reasons of which we will proactively advise you and keep you updated. If, due to any reason, any of your authorized users are not able to access our application due to network connectivity or technical issues from your side, you will ensure to rectify such issues and re-enable the access of our products to your users. We use Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) to host our solutions in the cloud (Hosted Services), and accordingly the availability of its access is governed by AWS. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to make the Hosted Services available with an Annual Uptime Percentage of at least 99.95%. Service downtime due to previously announced Maintenance downtime initiated by us will also not be considered in this calculation.
8.0 TRAINING SERVICES: We will provide training services purchased in an Order in accordance with the descriptions and conditions for those services set forth in the Order and the accompanying service descriptions or datasheets (“Ancillary Services”). We shall retain all right, title and interest in and to any materials, deliverables, modifications, derivative works or developments related to any training services we provide (“Training Materials”). Any Training Materials provided to you may be used only in connection with the Products subject to the same use restrictions for the Products. If applicable, you will reimburse us for reasonable travel and lodging expenses as incurred.
9.0 RETURNS & FINANCIAL TERMS:
9.1 RETURN POLICY: In the context of Hosted Services, a return means that we will disable access to the Hosted Service.
9.2 DELIVERY: We will deliver the login instructions to the email addresses specified in your Order or to your point of contact with whom we are communicating for the installation of our products, as the case may be. All deliveries under this Agreement will be electronic. For the avoidance of doubt, you are responsible for installation of any Software, and you acknowledge that we have no further delivery obligation with respect to the Software after this.
9.3 PAYMENT: You agree to pay all fees in accordance with each Order. Unless otherwise specified in your Order, you will pay all amounts in U.S. dollars at the time you place your Order. Other than as expressly set forth in Section 9.1 (Return Policy), all amounts are non-refundable, non-cancelable and non-creditable. In making payments, you acknowledge that you are not relying on future availability of any Products beyond the current License Term or Subscription Term or any Product upgrades or feature enhancements. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties. If you upgrade your account, this will trigger a pro-rated charge which will be processed immediately using the payment method you have provided. If you downgrade your account, we will adjust your fees down as of the next billing cycle. Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of User Content, features, or capacity of your account. We do not accept any liability for such loss. If you cancel the Service before the end of your current billing cycle, your account will remain open until the end of the current billing cycle, after which the cancellation will take effect and you will not be able to access your account.
9.4 TAXES: Your payments under this Agreement exclude any taxes or duties payable in respect of the Products in the jurisdiction where the payment is either made or received. To the extent that any such taxes or duties are payable by us, you must pay to us the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may have obtained an exemption from relevant taxes or duties as of the time such taxes or duties are levied or assessed. In that case, you will have the right to provide to us any such exemption information, and we will use reasonable efforts to provide such invoicing documents as may enable you to obtain a refund or credit for the amount so paid from any relevant revenue authority if such a refund or credit is available.
10.0 NO-CHARGE PRODUCTS: We may offer certain Products to you at no charge, including free accounts, trial use, test and training accounts (“No-Charge Products”). You may not use No-Charge Products for competitive analysis or similar purposes. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all obligations or liabilities with respect to No-Charge Products, including any Support and Maintenance, warranty, and indemnity obligations.

12.0 OWNERSHIP AND FEEDBACK: Products are made available on a limited license or access basis, and no ownership right is conveyed to you, irrespective of the use of terms such as “purchase” or “sale”. We and our licensors have and retain all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Products (including all No-Charge Products), their “look and feel”, any and all related or underlying technology, and any modifications or derivative works of the foregoing created by or for us, including without limitation as they may incorporate Feedback (“Getmymessage Technology”). From time to time, you may choose to submit comments, information, questions, data, ideas, description of processes, or other information to us, including sharing Your Modifications or in the course of receiving Support and Maintenance (“Feedback”). We may in connection with any of our products or services freely use, copy, disclose, license, distribute and exploit any Feedback in any manner without any obligation, royalty or restriction based on intellectual property rights or otherwise. No Feedback will be considered your Confidential Information, and nothing in this Agreement limits our right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products, whether incorporating Feedback or otherwise.
13.0 CONFIDENTIALITY: Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information disclosed to such party (“Receiving Party”) by the disclosing party ("Disclosing Party") constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party ("Confidential Information"), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure. Any Getmymessage Technology and any performance information relating to the Products shall be deemed Confidential Information of Getmymessage without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information. The Receiving Party's nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information. The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party). The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section shall not operate as a separate warranty with respect to the operation of any Product.
14.0 TERM AND TERMINATION: This Agreement is in effect for as long as you have a valid License Term or Subscription Term (the “Term”), unless sooner terminated as permitted in this Agreement. Either party may terminate this Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party materially breaches any of the terms of this Agreement and does not cure the breach within thirty (30) days after written notice of the breach. Either party may also terminate the Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party ceases to operate, declares bankruptcy, or becomes insolvent or otherwise unable to meet its financial obligations. You may terminate this Agreement at any time with notice to us, but you will not be entitled to any credits or refunds as a result of convenience termination for prepaid but unused Hosted Services subscriptions, or Support and Maintenance. You acknowledge and agree that terminations may be made by us in our sole discretion and that we shall not be liable to You or any third-party for any termination of Your access to our products or for the removal of any of the materials uploaded by You. Any termination of these Terms of Service by us shall be in addition to any and all other rights and remedies that we may have. Except where an exclusive remedy may be specified in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any remedy, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement, by law, or otherwise.
