2.5 Professional Services. In the event that the Customer elects to have the Provider perform any Professional Services, the Parties may complete either a written Order for minor projects or enter into a written statement of work for major projects, each governing the provision of such Professional Services.  The Provider shall perform such Professional Services (i) in a professional and workmanlike manner and (ii) in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the statement of work.

2.6 Customer Systems. The Customer shall at all times during the Subscription Term: (a) set up, maintain and operate in good repair, all information technology infrastructure on or through which the Services are accessed or used, which is not the Provider’s obligation under these Terms or the applicable Order, statement of work or order form (the “Customer Systems”); (b) provide the Provider access to the Customer’s premises and Customer Systems as is necessary for the Provider to perform the Services; and (c) provide promptly all cooperation, assistance and information as the Provider may reasonably request to enable it to exercise its rights and perform its obligations under and in connection with these Terms.

For clarity, the Provider will not be obligated to provide any Services to the Customer, or its Affiliate(s) until the Provider receives a valid Order for such Services.

2.8 Changes to the Subscription Service. The Provider may modify the Subscription Services from time to time by removing unused features and /or substituting outdated features with new features that have similar or improved functionality, by implementing system upgrades, migrations and/or platform changes or otherwise so long as such changes are not intended to and do not materially adversely affect the Customer’s use of the Subscription Services.

3.3 Service Levels. Service levels of the Subscription Services shall be governed by the terms of the SLA. 

4. PAYMENT AND TAXES

4.1 Payment Terms. Unless specified otherwise in the Order, all Fees (i) will be stated and paid in the currency specified in the Order without setoff or any deductions, (ii) cannot be decreased during the Subscription Term; and (iii) are non-refundable. The Customer will pay the Fees identified in the Order as follows:

(a) Subscription Service Fees. Unless otherwise provided on the Order, the Provider will invoice the Customer annually in advance for the Subscription Services. Payment is due to the Provider on the earlier of: (i) thirty (30) days from the invoice date or (ii) the anniversary of the Order start date. Subscription Fees are based on Services purchased and not actual usage (except for Overage Fees).

(b) Overage Fees. The Customer will pay to the Provider the Overage Fees calculated and invoiced in accordance with the Order within thirty (30) days from the invoice date.

(c) Professional Services Fees. Professional Services Fees will be delivered on time and material basis or fixed fee basis, in either case, as stated in an Order or statement or work.

(e) Expenses. The Provider will invoice the Customer in arrears for any pre-approved expenses incurred in connection with delivering any of the Services, such as food, travel, and lodging, as set out in the applicable Order or statement of work.

4.2 Payment Details. The Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate invoicing details and primary contact information to the Provider and notifying the Provider of any changes to such information via email sent to accounting@clickmaint.com. Where a purchase order number is given by the Customer, the Provider shall include such purchase order number on the invoice. If the Customer fails to provide or provides an incorrect purchase order number then it shall not be relieved of its obligation to pay the relevant Fees.

4.3 Overdue Charges. Any undisputed payment that is not received by the due date may accrue late charges at the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permitted by Law, whichever is lower, plus any and all collection costs.

4.4 Invoice Disputes. If Customer reasonably, and in good faith, disputes all or any portion of any invoice, the Customer will notify the Provider in writing emailed to accounting@clickmaint.com of its objection within thirty (30) days from the date of the Customer’s receipt of the relevant invoice, provide a detailed description of the reasons for the objection, and pay the portion of the invoice which is not in dispute (if any). Failure to provide an objection within the time frame will be deemed acceptance of the invoice. The Customer’s obligations to pay the disputed amounts of any such invoice will be suspended until such time as the Parties resolve such dispute.

4.5 Taxes. Except as otherwise stated in an Order, the Fees do not include any direct or indirect local, provincial, federal or foreign taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including value-added, goods- and-services tax, excise, use or withholding taxes (collectively, “Taxes“). The Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes, excluding any income taxes levied on the Provider. If the Provider has a legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which the Customer is responsible, the appropriate amount will be invoiced to and paid by the Customer, unless the Customer provides the Provider with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. If the Customer is required by Law to account for or pay any withholding for any tax, duty, or other charge in respect of any invoice issued by the Provider (“WHT”), the Customer will: (i) gross up the amount payable under the invoice to apply the rate of WHT so that, after payment of any WHT, the net amount received by the Provider from the Customer will be equal to the actual amount payable under the invoice; (ii) pay the WHT to the relevant taxing or other governmental authority; and (iii) promptly provide evidence of such payment. The Customer shall indemnify, and hold the Provider and its Affiliates harmless from and against third party claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses arising from non-payment of any WHT.

4.6 Fee Increase. Provider reserves the right to increase fees after the expiration or renewal of the initial Subscription Term (which may be monthly, annually or some other period). The Provider will provide at least sixty (60) days’ advance notice of any such fee increase prior to the renewal date. If an Order sets out additional or conflicting fee increase terms, those additional or conflicting fee increase terms will prevail and govern, to the extent of such inconsistency.

5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS

5.1 Retained Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, the Provider and its licensors reserve all of their right, title and interest in and to: (a) all information, data or other content that is generated by or used in connection with the Subscription Services including, without limitation, all of their related intellectual property rights, aggregated and statistical data arising from the operation of the Services and any customizations, improvements, suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations or other feedback, relating to the functionality of the Services, regardless of whether such material is provided by the Customer or the Provider and its Authorized Users (collectively the “Provider Content”), but for clarity, the Provider Content does not include the Content or Standard Personal Data, the ownership of which remains with the Customer; and (b) the Services (including without limitation, the Provider Content), and including any and all registered and unregistered rights granted, applied for or otherwise now or hereafter in existence under or related to any patent, copyright, trade-mark, trade secret, database protection or other intellectual property rights laws, and all similar or equivalent rights or forms or protection in any party of the world (collectively, “IP Rights”) in any of them.

6.1 Confidential Information. The term “Confidential Information” means Standard Personal Data, internal policies and procedures of a Party and all other non-public information that a reasonable person should understand to be confidential due to its nature and the circumstances in which it was disclosed and that is disclosed by or on behalf of either Party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other Party (“Receiving Party”), whether such information is disclosed before or after the Effective Date, but specifically excludes account history and user activity of the Customer, provided such information does not contain personally identifiable information. The obligations of confidentiality set out herein do not apply to information that (i) was in the public domain prior to the time of disclosure; (ii) enters the public domain after disclosure through no action or inaction of the Receiving Party; (iii) is already known by the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure; (iv) is obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without restriction; or (v) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. Except as otherwise expressly set out in these Terms, the Receiving Party will not disclose (including, without limitation, distribute, transmit or transfer) or use the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party or any portion thereof without the prior written consent of Disclosing Party except for the purpose of exercising its rights or performing its obligations under these Terms. The Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to its employees, consultants, and agents who are bound by obligations of confidentiality no less protective than those set out in these Terms and Receiving Party will be responsible for any unauthorized disclosure of any Confidential Information by such persons as if Receiving Party had made such unauthorized disclosure itself. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to the extent required by Law so long as the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party (to the extent legally permissible) prompt written notice prior to the disclosure and reasonable assistance in limiting disclosure or obtaining a protective order. Provider may disclose the agreement between the Parties to actual and potential investors and funding sources who agree to hold it in confidence. The Receiving Party agrees to take steps designed to protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that are substantially similar to those it takes to protect its own proprietary information (but not less than reasonable care) from unauthorized disclosure. Receiving Party will promptly notify the Disclosing Party if the Receiving Party becomes aware of any misuse or unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information.

6.2 Return of Confidential Information of Disclosing Party. Upon Disclosing Party’s written request or when these Terms are terminated or expire, within thirty (30) days of such request, termination or expiration (as the case may be), the Receiving Party will return or destroy all Confidential Information. However, the Receiving Party is permitted to retain copies of the Confidential Information for archival, audit, disaster recovery, legal and/or regulatory purposes. The return of any Confidential Information as required under this Section 6.2 shall be performed in accordance with the provisions of Section 11.4 hereof.

6.3 Injunctive Relief. The Receiving Party acknowledges that any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party may result in irreparable injury to the Disclosing Party, which injury could not be adequately compensated by the payment of money damages. In addition to any other legal and equitable remedies that may be available, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek injunctive relief against any breach or threatened breach by the Receiving Party of the confidentiality obligations hereunder, from any court of competent jurisdiction, without being required to: (a) show any actual damage or irreparable harm; (b) prove the inadequacy of its legal remedies; or (c) post any bond or other security.

6.4 Provider Data Security and Privacy Obligations. The Provider maintains industry standard physical, administrative, and technical security measures to protect against and prevent unauthorized access of Standard Personal Data and Content, but cannot and does not guarantee that Standard Personal Data or Content will not be subject to unauthorized access or disclosure. The Provider is not responsible for unauthorized access, alteration, theft or destruction of Standard Personal Data or Content arising from the Customer’s or its Authorized User’s actions or omissions.  The Provider’s privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) is located at https://www.clickmaint.com/privacy-policy.

Upon termination or expiration of the applicable Order, the Customer’s use of the Subscription Services shall cease and the Customer shall uninstall any Provider software (and the Provider may disable access to any such software) and promptly deliver to the Provider the original and all copies of property, equipment, materials and work in progress produced in connection with the performance of the Services (in any form or media within the possession or under the control of the Customer, and including, but not limited to, all software) and the Customer shall take such other action as is required to provide the Provider control over such materials and work in progress, except to the extent same are by the terms of a statement of work to be retained by the Customer after the termination or expiration of these Terms. Termination of an Order will not relieve the Customer of any liability accrued prior to the date of termination. In addition, if an Order is terminated by the Customer for any reason other than those listed in Section 11.2, the Customer will remain responsible for any fees set out in the Order, regardless of whether such amounts have been invoiced or are payable at the time of such termination. However, upon termination of an Order by the Customer for Provider’s breach, Provider will refund to the Customer any unused, prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of the applicable Order. Termination of an Order will not affect the Parties’ rights and obligations under any other Order, and all other Orders will remain in full force and effect unless and until terminated in accordance with their terms.

11.4 Data Retention and Deletion. For thirty (30) days following expiration or termination of an Order (“Retention Period”), the Customer may at its sole discretion provide a written request to the Provider that: (a) the Provider returns a complete copy of all Standard Personal Data (exported in an CSV format using standard export functions provided by the Subscription Service); or (b) delete and procure the deletion of all copies of Standard Personal Data. The Provider shall have forty five (45) days to comply with any such written request. Promptly following the Retention Period, and in any event within sixty  (60) days of the expiry of the Retention Period, the Provider shall delete and procure the deletion of any copies of any Standard Personal Data which has not already been deleted upon the written request of the Customer. Notwithstanding the other terms of this section, the Provider may retain Standard Personal Data to the extent required by Law(s) and only to the extent and for such period as required by Law(s) and always provided that Provider shall ensure the confidentiality of all such Standard Personal Data and shall ensure that such Standard Personal Data is only processed as necessary for the purpose(s) specified in the Law(s) requiring its storage and for no other purpose.

11.5 Suspension. Provider reserves the right to suspend access to the Subscription Service without liability if: (a) the Customer is delinquent on any undisputed late payment obligations for more than thirty (30) days following written notice of such late payment; (b) the Provider reasonably believes that suspension of the Subscription Service is necessary to comply with Law or request of governmental entities; (c) the Provider reasonably determines that the Customer’s use of the Subscription Service poses any security or vulnerability risk to the Provider, the Customer, or the Subscription Service; or (d) if the Provider reasonably determines the security or proper functionality of the Subscription Services may be compromised due to hacking, denial of service attacks, or a security incident involving the Provider’s Services. The Provider will endeavor to give advance notice of any suspension and will restore access to the Subscription Service as soon as the underlying cause is mitigated.

11.6 Survival. If these Terms are terminated for any reason, remedies for breach, rights to accrued payments and Sections 1 (Definitions), 4.1 (Payment Terms), 5.3 (Feedback), 6 (Confidentiality and Data Privacy), 8 (Indemnification), 9 (Limitation of Liability), 11.3 (Effects of Termination), 12 (General).

12. GENERAL TERMS

12.1 Waiver and Severability. No failure or delay by either Party in exercising any right under these Terms will constitute a waiver of that right. All waivers must be in writing and signed by the Party granting the waiver. The waiver by a Party of any of its rights or remedies in a particular instance will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent event or breach by the other Party. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be restated so that it is enforceable to the maximum extent permissible under law and is consistent with the original intent and economic terms of the invalid provision. The remainder of these Terms will remain valid and enforceable in accordance with its terms.

12.2 Subcontractors. The Provider reserves the right to use subcontractors (who are under a covenant of confidentiality with the Provider), including, but not limited to, offshore subcontractors to assist with Services, including, without limitation, data migration, configuration, and implementation processes. The Provider will be and remain fully responsible for the acts and omissions of subcontractors to the same extent as its own employees.

12.3 Non-Solicitation. During the Subscription Term and for twelve (12) months thereafter, neither Party will, directly or indirectly, induce or attempt to induce any employee or consultant of the other Party or any of its Affiliates engaged in the provision, receipt, review or management of the Services to leave the employment of the other Party. Nothing in this Section will preclude either Party from publishing or otherwise making general solicitations of employment not specifically directed towards personnel or hiring personnel because of such general solicitation.

12.4 Force Majeure. Neither Party will be liable for any failure to perform due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation, acts of God; acts of government; natural disasters; fire; civil unrest; acts of terror; pandemic; labor problems (other than those involving such Party’s employees); or Internet or telecommunications service provider failures. A force majeure event will not include a Party’s financial inability to perform its obligations. If any force majeure event occurs, the affected Party will give prompt written notice to the other Party and will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the impact of the event.

12.5 Assignment. Subject to Section 12.2, either Party may transfer or assign any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part and including any transfers by operation of law, without the prior written consent of the other Party. However, either Party may transfer or assign its obligations under these Terms in their entirety without the consent of the other Party to an Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, and corporate reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of its assets or a similar transaction. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this Section will be null and void. These Terms will be binding on and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.

12.6 Relationship of the Parties. The relationship between the Parties is that of independent contractors. These Terms do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the Parties. Neither Party will have authority to contract for or bind the other Party in any manner whatsoever.

12.7 Publicity. The Provider may identify the Customer as a customer of the Provider on the Provider’s website as well as within any written and/or electronic marketing material relating to the Provider’s products and/or services.

12.8 Third-Party Beneficiaries. These Terms are for the sole benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express, or implied, is intended to or will confer upon any other party any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of these Terms.

12.9 Compliance with Laws. Each Party will comply with all Laws in the performance of its obligations under any Order and these Terms, including, without limitation, privacy, anti-bribery and modern slavery laws. Each Party will maintain its own policies and procedures designed to ensure compliance with all Laws.

12.10 Governing Law. All matters arising out of or relating to an Order or these Terms will be governed by and construed under the laws of the province of Manitoba, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules. The Parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. Subject to Section 12.11 hereof, any legal suit, action, litigation or proceeding of any kind whatsoever in any way arising out of, from or relating to these Terms, the services provided hereunder, and all contemplated transactions, shall be instituted in the courts of the Province of Manitoba.

12.11 Dispute Resolution. If a dispute should arise between the Parties relating to these Terms or any Order, the Parties shall promptly hold a meeting, attended by persons with decision-making authority regarding the dispute, in an attempt in good faith to negotiate a resolution of the dispute; provided, however, that no such meeting shall be deemed to vitiate or reduce the obligations and liabilities of the Parties or be deemed a waiver by either Party hereto of any remedies to which such Party would otherwise be entitled. If the dispute is not resolved within thirty (30) days after the commencement of negotiations, or if no negotiations are commenced within sixty (60) days after one Party notifies the other Party of such dispute, then such dispute may be resolved by formal legal actions. The foregoing process will not apply if expiration of the applicable time for bringing an action is imminent and will not prohibit a Party from pursuing injunctive or other equitable relief to which it may be entitled.

12.12 Notices. Any notice required or permitted to be given will be effective if it is in writing and sent by certified or registered mail, or overnight courier, return receipt requested or email with confirmation of receipt, to the appropriate Party at the address set out on Order and with the appropriate postage affixed (where applicable). Either Party may change its address for receipt of notice by notice to the other Party in accordance with this Section 12.12. Notices are deemed given two (2) Business Days following the date of mailing or one Business Day following delivery to a courier or sending of email.

12.13 Export Compliance. Each Party represents that it is not named on any U.S. or U.K. government or United Nations list of persons or entities with which U.S. or U.K. persons or United Nations members are prohibited from transacting, nor owned or controlled by or acting on behalf of any such persons or entities, and Customer will not permit any Authorized User to access or use the Services in any manner that would cause any Party to violate any U.S., U.K. or international embargo, export control law, or prohibition.

12.14 Entire Agreement and Amendments. These Terms, including the Order(s) and any statement(s) of work, sets forth the entire agreement and understanding of the Parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, proposals, negotiations, conversations, and discussions and understandings, written or oral, with respect to such subject matter. These Terms may not be modified or amended except in writing signed by both Parties. These Terms shall take precedence over any conflicting terms in Customer-provided purchase or procurement documentation, such as a purchase order, acknowledgement form, or other similar documentation. Any pre-printed terms and conditions on or attached to Customer’s purchase orders or invoices will be of no force or effect. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency among the following documents, the order of precedence shall be: (a) these Terms (including the other agreements and documents referenced herein), (b) the applicable Order (except where those terms expressly indicate otherwise) and (c) the Documentation. The titles and headings are for reference purposes only and will not in any way affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.
