Fees are due and payable thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice, unless (a) Customer is paying via Credit Card or (b) otherwise specified in the applicable Order Form.

In the event of a Claim Against Customer pursuant to this Section 7.1, Company may (at Company’s option and expense): (i) obtain for Customer the right to continue using the Service; (ii) modify the Service to make it non-infringing; or (iii) if subsections (i) and (ii) are not commercially viable (as determined by Company in its sole discretion), terminate this Agreement and refund Customer on a pro-rated basis any Fees pre-paid to Company for the corresponding unused period of the Service.
As a condition of receiving an indemnification under this Agreement, Customer will provide Company with (i) prompt written notice of the claim; (ii) complete control over the defense and settlement of the claim (provided, that the Company will not settle any claim without the Customer’s prior written permission, which will not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned, in the event the settlement fails to unconditionally release the Customer from all liability pertaining to such claim); and (iii) such assistance in connection with the defense and settlement of the claim, at the Customer’s expense, as the Company may reasonably request.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; OR FOR ANY AMOUNTS THAT, TOGETHER WITH AMOUNTS ASSOCIATED WITH ALL OTHER CLAIMS, EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO COMPANY FOR THE SERVICES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACT THAT GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY, IN EACH CASE, WHETHER OR NOT COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Service Level Terms (applies to Enterprise plan only)
The Services shall be available 99.9%, measured monthly, excluding holidays and weekends and scheduled maintenance. If Customer requests maintenance during these hours, any uptime or downtime calculation will exclude periods affected by such maintenance. Further, any downtime resulting from outages of third-party connections or utilities or other reasons beyond Company’s control will also be excluded from any such calculation. Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, and Company’s entire liability, in connection with Service availability shall be that for each period of downtime lasting longer than one hour, Company will credit Customer 5% of Service fees for each period of 30 or more consecutive minutes of downtime; provided that no more than one such credit will accrue per day. Downtime shall begin to accrue as soon as Customer (with notice to Company) recognizes that downtime is taking place, and continues until the availability of the Services is restored. In order to receive downtime credit, Customer must notify Company in writing within 24 hours from the time of downtime, and failure to provide such notice will forfeit the right to receive downtime credit. Such credits may not be redeemed for cash and shall not be cumulative beyond a total of credits for one (1) week of Service Fees in any one (1) calendar month in any event. Company will only apply a credit to the month in which the incident occurred. Company’s blocking of data communications or other Service in accordance with its policies shall not be deemed to be a failure of Company to provide adequate service levels under this Agreement.
The scheduled time for maintenance is 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. PST/PDT, and may be used by Company with no advance notification to Customer. We may expand these scheduled times provided that we notify you at least one day in advance. In addition, in the event that we in our sole discretion determine that any unscheduled maintenance is necessary, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you.
The rights and remedies granted under this SLA apply to you only if you are a current subscriber of the Services. This SLA describes your sole remedy, and our entire obligation, if we fail to satisfy our uptime guarantee. This SLA does not diminish or override the disclaimer of warranties in the Agreement to which this SLA is attached (except as expressly stated therein).

The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the Data Exporter is established.
Variation of the contract
The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.
- The Data Importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the Data Exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the Data Exporter. Where the Data Importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the Data Exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the Sub-Processor which imposes the same obligations on the Sub-Processor as are imposed on the Data Importer under the Clauses. Where the Sub-Processor fails to fulfill its data protection obligations under such written agreement the Data Importer shall remain fully liable to the Data Exporter for the performance of the Sub-Processor’s obligations under such agreement.
- The prior written contract between the Data Importer and the Sub-Processor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the Data Subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the Data Exporter or the Data Importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Data Exporter or Data Importer by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the Sub-Processor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
- The provisions relating to data protection aspects for sub-processing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the Data Exporter is established.
- The Data Exporter shall keep a list of sub-processing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by the Data Importer pursuant to Clause 5(j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the Data Exporter’s data protection supervisory authority.
Obligation after the termination of personal data-processing services
- The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data-processing services, the Data Importer and the Sub-Processor shall, at the choice of the Data Exporter, return all the personal data transferred and the copies thereof to the Data Exporter or shall destroy all the personal data and certify to the Data Exporter that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon the Data Importer prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the personal data transferred. In that case, the Data Importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred anymore.
- The Data Importer and the Sub-Processor warrant that upon request of the Data Exporter and/or of the supervisory authority, it will submit its data-processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.
- Sub-processing. The data importer may engage other companies to provide limited parts of the Services (including support services) on the data importer’s behalf, and the data exporter consents to the data importer subcontracting the processing of personal data to such sub-processors as described in the Clauses. The data importer will ensure that any sub-processor will only access and use personal data to provide the Services as set forth in a written agreement between the data importer and the sub-processor. The data exporter acknowledges that any requirements applicable to the data importer under the Clauses in respect of agreements with sub-processors shall be satisfied in full provided that the sub-processing agreement between the data importer and the sub-processor provides at least the level of data protection required under the Agreement.
- Liability. The Clauses shall be subject to the limitations and exclusions of liability contained in the “Limitation of Liability” section of the Master Services Agreement or Terms of Service, such that the total liability of the data importer and Digify Pte Ltd, in aggregate, shall not exceed the limitations set out in the Agreement.
