All Fees paid or payable for Services are non-cancellable and non-refundable. Stack Identity may update its pricing for a Service by publishing, quoting or invoicing Customer at the updated pricing at least thirty (30) days before such changes take effect; provided, however this sentence shall not apply to Fees agreed in a Services Order to be fixed for an Initial Period or applicable Renewal Period(s).

If Customer is required by law to withhold any tax from the payment, Customer will provide to Stack Identity original or certified copies of all tax payment receipts or other evidence of payment of taxes by Customer with respect to transactions under the Agreement. If Customer fails to provide Stack Identity with such tax payment receipts, if applicable, then Customer will reimburse Stack Identity for any fines, penalties, taxes and other governmental agency charges resulting from such failure.

The warranty for Subscription Services ends when the Term ends.

STACK IDENTITY DOES NOT WARRANT UNITERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES OR THAT STACK IDENTITY WILL IDENTIFY ALL THREATS, VULNERABILITIES, DEFICIENCIES AND RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CUSTOMER’S IDENTITIES OR ACCESSES. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW CUSTOMER AGREES THAT THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED CONCERNING THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. STACK IDENTITY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS.

    1. Indemnification by Stack Identity. Stack Identity will defend, indemnify and hold Customer harmless from any claim asserting that the Services infringe any intellectual property right of a third party, and will pay any and all damages awarded by a court and actually paid by Customer, or agreed to in settlement by Stack Identity and attributable to such claim.

      If the Services are found to infringe, or if Stack Identity determines in its sole opinion that the Services are likely to be found to infringe, then Stack Identity will either (i) obtain for Customer the right to continue to use the Service; or (ii) modify the Service so as to make it non-infringing, or replace it with a non-infringing equivalent substantially comparable in functionality; or, if Stack Identity determines in its sole opinion that “(i)” and/or “(ii)” are not commercially reasonable, Stack Identity may (iii) terminate Customer’s rights and Stack Identity’s obligations under the Agreement with respect to such Services, and in such case shall refund to Customer the fees paid for the relevant Services. Notwithstanding the above, Stack Identity will not be liable for any infringement claim to the extent that it is based upon: (1) modification of the Services other than by Stack Identity; (2) combination, use, or operation of the Services with products or services not specifically authorized by Stack Identity to be combined with the Services; (3) use of the Services other than in accordance with the Agreement; (4) Stack Identity’s compliance with Customer’s explicit or written designs, specifications or instruction; (5) Customer Data, Provisioning Data or Third-Party Software or (6) Customer’s continued use of infringing Services after Stack Identity, for no additional charge, supplies or offers to supply modified or replacement non-infringing Services.THIS SECTION “INDEMNITY” STATES CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND STACK IDENTITY’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE LIABILITY REGARDING INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY.
    2. Indemnification by Customer.

  10. CONFIDENTIALITY.Confidential Information” means, for purposes of the Agreement, the non-public information provided by a Party (“Discloser”) to the other Party (“Recipient”) related to the business opportunities between the Parties, provided that such information is: (a) identified or marked as confidential at the time of disclosure by the Discloser, or (b) of such nature that, under the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, a reasonable person would consider it as confidential or proprietary. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Confidential Information shall include service architecture, research and development plans, non-public financial data and roadmaps, benchmark or similar test results, security information, security audit reports, business and marketing plans whether marked as confidential or not. The Recipient may use the Confidential Information that it receives from the Discloser solely for the purpose of performing activities contemplated under the Agreement. For a period of five (5) years following the applicable date of disclosure of any Confidential Information, the Recipient will not disclose the Confidential Information to any third party, except as otherwise set out in this section. The Recipient will protect it by using the same degree of care, but no less than a reasonable degree of care, to prevent the unauthorized use, dissemination or publication as the Recipient uses to protect its own confidential information of a like nature. The Recipient may disclose the Confidential Information to its and its Affiliates’ employees, contractors, and agents (“Permitted Recipients”) with a need to know in order to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under the Agreement, provided that the Recipient binds each Permitted Recipient to legally binding obligations which are at least as protective of the Discloser’s rights as the Agreement. This Section imposes no obligation upon the Recipient with respect to Confidential Information which: (i) is or becomes public knowledge other than by breach of the Agreement; (ii) was in the Recipient’s possession before receipt from the Discloser and was not subject to a duty of confidentiality; (iii) is rightfully received by the Recipient without any duty of confidentiality; (iv) is disclosed generally to a third party by the Discloser without a duty of confidentiality on the third party; or (v) is independently developed by the Recipient without use of the Confidential Information. The Recipient may disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information as required by law or court order provided: (x) the Recipient promptly notifies the Discloser in writing of the requirement for disclosure, if legally permissible; and (y) discloses only as much of the Confidential Information as is required. Discloser may request the return of Confidential Information or upon termination or completion of the Agreement or any Subscription, Recipient will either return (if technically feasible to do so) or destroy the Confidential Information and upon request of Discloser, will certify such destruction. Notwithstanding the foregoing and provided that such information is protected in accordance with the terms of the Agreement, the Recipient may continue to maintain copies of Confidential Information: (i) that is included in its data backup, which will be destroyed in accordance with the Recipient’s data retention policies; or (ii) as required to comply with applicable law, which will be destroyed when such obligation is met. Each Party will retain all right, title and interest to such Party’s Confidential Information. The Parties acknowledge that a violation by the Recipient of its obligations with respect to Confidential Information may cause irreparable harm to the Discloser for which a remedy at law would be inadequate. Therefore, in addition to any and all remedies available at law, the Discloser will be entitled to seek an injunction or other equitable remedies in all legal proceedings in the event of any threatened or actual violation of any or all of the provisions.
