Customer shall retain all right, title and interest in and to the Customer Data, including all intellectual property rights therein. Customer, not Acres, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all Customer Data. Customer represents and warrants that it has all rights necessary to provide the Customer Data to Acres as contemplated hereunder, in each case without any infringement, violation or misappropriation of any third party rights (including, without limitation, intellectual property rights and rights of privacy).

Acres is not responsible to Customer for unauthorized access to Customer Data or the unauthorized use of the Service unless such access is due to Acres’ gross negligence or willful misconduct.

Customer is solely responsible for procuring any and all rights necessary for it to access Third Party Services (including any Customer Data or other information relating thereto) and for complying with any applicable terms or conditions thereof. Acres does not make any representations or warranties with respect to Third Party Services or any third party providers. Any exchange of data or other interaction between Customer and a third party provider is solely between Customer and such third party provider and is governed by such third party’s terms and conditions.

Term; Termination

This Agreement shall commence upon the date of the first Order Form, and, unless earlier terminated in accordance herewith, shall last until the expiration of all Order Form terms. For each Order Form, unless otherwise specified therein, the “Order Form Term” shall begin as of the effective date set forth on such Order Form, and unless earlier terminated as set forth herein, (x) shall continue for the initial term specified on such Order Form (the “Order Form Initial Term”), and (y) following the Order Form Initial Term, shall automatically renew for additional successive periods of equal duration to the Order Form Initial Term (each, a “Order Form Renewal Term”) unless either party notifies the other party of such party’s intention not to renew no later than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Order Form Initial Term or then-current Order Form Renewal Term, as applicable. In the event of a material breach of this Agreement by either party, the non-breaching party may terminate this Agreement by providing written notice to the breaching party, provided that the breaching party does not materially cure such breach within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice. Without limiting the foregoing, Acres may suspend or limit Customer’s access to or use of the Service if (i) Customer’s account is more than sixty (60) days past due, or (ii) Customer’s use of the Service results in (or is reasonably likely to result in) damage to or material degradation of the Service which interferes with Acres’ ability to provide access to the Service to other customers; provided that in the case of subsection (ii): (a) Acres shall use reasonable good faith efforts to work with Customer to resolve or mitigate the damage or degradation in order to resolve the issue without resorting to suspension or limitation; (b) prior to any such suspension or limitation, Acres shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide notice to Customer describing the nature of the damage or degradation; and (c) Acres shall reinstate Customer’s use of or access to the Service, as applicable, if Customer remediates the issue within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, accrued payment obligations, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability. For clarity, any services provided by Acres to Customer, including the data export set out above, and any assistance in exporting the Customer Data, shall be billable at Acres’ standard rates then in effect.

Indemnification

Each party (“Indemnitor”) shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the other party, its affiliates and each of its and its affiliates’ employees, contractors, directors, suppliers and representatives (collectively, the “Indemnitee”) from all liabilities, claims, and expenses paid or payable to an unaffiliated third party (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (“Losses”), that arise from or relate to any claim that (i) in the case of Customer as Indemnitor, that the Customer Data or Customer’s use of the Service infringes, violates, or misappropriates any third party intellectual property or proprietary right, including any rights of privacy, or violates any applicable law, or (B) in the case of Acres as Indemnitor, the Service infringes, violates, or misappropriates any third party intellectual property or proprietary right, or (ii) the Service (in the case of Acres as Indemnitor), infringes, violates, or misappropriates any third party intellectual property or proprietary right. Each Indemnitor’s indemnification obligations hereunder shall be conditioned upon the Indemnitee providing the Indemnitor with: (x) prompt written notice of any claim (provided that a failure to provide such notice shall only relieve the Indemnitor of its indemnity obligations if the Indemnitor is materially prejudiced by such failure); (y) the option to assume sole control over the defense and settlement of any claim (provided that the Indemnitee may participate in such defense and settlement at its own expense); and (z) reasonable information and assistance in connection with such defense and settlement (at the Indemnitor’s expense). The foregoing obligations of Acres do not apply with respect to the Service or any information, technology, materials or data (or any portions or components of the foregoing) to the extent (i) not created or provided by Acres (including without limitation any Customer Data), (ii) made in whole or in part in accordance to Customer specifications, (iii) modified after delivery by Acres, (iv) combined with other products, processes or materials not provided by Acres (where the alleged Losses arise from or relate to such combination), (v) where Customer continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (vi) Customer’s use of the Service is not strictly in accordance herewith. Notwithstanding anything else, Acres will have no obligation under this Section 12 with respect to Free Services.

Limitation of Liability

EXCEPT FOR THE PARTIES’ INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS AND FOR CUSTOMER’S BREACH OF SECTION 8, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY, NOR ITS DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, SUPPLIERS OR CONTENT PROVIDERS, BE LIABLE UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY WITH RESPECT TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT (I) FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, DATA LOSS, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES (HOWEVER ARISING), (II) FOR ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE (REGARDLESS OF THE SOURCE OF ORIGINATION), (III) THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE USED WITH THE SERVICES, OR (IV) FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF (IN THE AGGREGATE) THE FEES PAID (OR PAYABLE) BY CUSTOMER TO ACRES HEREUNDER IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM HEREUNDER.

Acres Support and Availability Policy

Overview

This Support and Availability Policy (the “Policy”) sets forth the policies and procedures with respect to services (the “Service”) provided by Acres to a customer (“Customer”) pursuant to a separate Service agreement between Acres and Customer (a “Customer Agreement”).

Summary

As further described below, Acres will use commercially reasonable efforts to: (i) provide Customer with 99% availability to the Service (the “Service Availability”); and (ii) provide standard support to Customer.

Availability

If the Service becomes substantially unavailable to Customer due to defects with the Service, Acres will respond to Customer (i) within eight (8) hours from Customer’s notification to Acres of such unavailability, if during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00am – 6:00pm Central), or (ii) within eight (8) hours of the start of the next business day, if outside of normal business hours. The Service Availability will be measured on a monthly basis, with all hours weighted equally, but the Service Availability measurement will exclude reasonable scheduled downtime for system maintenance as well as any downtime or performance issues resulting from third party connections, services or utilities or other reason beyond Acres’ control (including without limitation, acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems (other than those involving Acres employees), computer, telecommunications, Internet service provider or hosting facility failures or delays involving hardware, software or power systems not within Acres’ possession or reasonable control, and denial of service attacks). If the Service is unavailable to Customer due to defects with the Service beyond the Service Availability metric, then, as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy (and Acres’ sole liability), Acres will provide Customer a credit for the subsequent Service billing cycle as follows:

Availability
Credit
97% - 99%
5%
95% - 97%
10%
<95%
20%

In order to receive downtime credit, Customer must notify Acres support within seventy-two (72) hours from the time of downtime, and failure to provide such notice will forfeit the right to receive downtime credit. All credits provided hereunder are nonrefundable. If Customer elects not to renew the Agreement, such that the above credit cannot be applied, Customer will have the option to receive up to one free month of Service as its sole remedy in lieu of such credit.

Support

Acres will provide support to customer for defects with the Service in accordance with the Service Plan selected by Customer. Any other support services are outside of the scope of this policy and must be separately agreed in writing by Customer and Acres. Customer may designate up to 3 support contacts (“Designated Support Contacts”), and all support requests must come through the Designated Support Contacts. Customer may update the Designated Support Contacts by providing notice to Acres.
