Seeq does not license the Software on a perpetual basis.

This Agreement will continue in effect for the Subscription Term of all Order Documents hereunder.

e. Limitations on Use. All use of Software must be in accordance with the relevant Documentation. End User may make a limited number of copies of the Software as is strictly necessary for purposes of data protection, archiving, backup, and testing.

f. Software Modification. Seeq may modify the Software from time to time, but such modification will not materially reduce the functionality of the Software. Seeq may contract with third parties to support the Software, so long as they are subject to obligations of confidentiality to Seeq at least as strict as Seeq’s to Customer. Seeq shall remain responsible for the performance of its contractors.

2. Support. Support for Customer’s use of the Software is included in Customer’s subscription fee. Seeq will provide support and maintenance for the Software, including all applicable updates, and web-based support assistance in accordance with Seeq’s support policies in effect from time to time.

Customer is the owner and data controller for the Customer Data.

b. Software and Seeq Technology. Seeq retains all rights in the Software and the Seeq Technology (subject to the license granted to Customer). Customer will not, and will not allow any other person to, modify, adapt, create derivative works of, reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software or Seeq Technology.

  1. Fees and Payment Terms.

a. Fees. Customer shall pay the fees as specified in the Order Document. Unless otherwise specified in the Order Document, all amounts are in US Dollars (USD). Upon renewal of a Subscription Term, Customer will, if applicable, increase the number of Authorized Users to a number that Customer believes in good faith will be sufficient to accommodate any expected growth in the number of Customer’s users during the new Subscription Term.

b. Invoicing & Payment. All payments are due within 30 days of the date of the invoice and are non-cancellable and non-refundable except as provided in this Agreement. If Customer does not pay any amount (not disputed in good faith) when due, Seeq may charge interest on the unpaid amount at the rate of 1.0% per month (or if less, the maximum rate allowed by law). If Customer does not pay an overdue amount (not disputed in good faith) within 20 days of notice of non-payment, Seeq may suspend the Software until such payment is received, but Customer will remain obligated to make all payments due under this Agreement. Customer agrees to pay Seeq’s expenses, including reasonable attorneys and collection fees, incurred in collecting amounts not subject to a good faith dispute.

c. Excess Usage of Software. The Software has usage limitations based on the number of Authorized Users or other metrics as set forth on the Order Document. Customer shall maintain accurate records regarding Customer’s actual use of the Software and shall make such information promptly available to Seeq upon request. Seeq may also monitor Customer’s use of the Software.

d. Fees for Excess Usage of Software. Seeq will not require Customer to pay for past excess use, and in consideration thereof:

i. If Customer’s license covers a fixed number of Authorized Users, Customer will promptly issue a new Order Document to cover current and good-faith anticipated future excess use.

ii. If Customer’s license is under Seeq’s Extended Experience Program, Strategic Agreement Program or any other program not tied directly to a fixed number of Authorized Users, then the parties will negotiate in good faith as follows:

(1) if the excess use is less than 50% above the number of Authorized Users that was used to set pricing for such license for the current contract period (usually a year), the parties will negotiate an appropriate usage level and fees for the next contract period, and

(2) If the excess use is more than 50% above such number, the parties will negotiate appropriate usage levels and fees for the remainder of the current and the next contract periods, with additional fees for the current period payable upon Seeq’s invoice.

e. Taxes. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, including federal, state and local use, sales, property, value-added, ad valorem and similar taxes related to this transaction, however designated (except taxes based on Seeq’s net income). Unless Customer presents valid evidence of exemption, Customer agrees to pay any and all such taxes that it is obligated by law to pay. Customer will pay Seeq’s invoices for such taxes whenever Seeq is required to collect such taxes from Customer.

f. Purchase through Seeq Partner. In the event that End User purchased its subscription to Seeq through an accredited Seeq Partner, notwithstanding provisions of this Agreement relating to End User’s payments to Seeq, Partner will invoice End User, or charge End User using the credit card on file, and End User will pay all applicable subscription fees to Partner.

6. Confidentiality. “Confidential Information” means all information and materials obtained by a party (the “Recipient”) from the other party (the “Disclosing Party”), whether in tangible form, written or oral, that is identified as confidential or would reasonably be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and circumstances of disclosure, including without limitation Customer Data, the Software, Seeq Technology, and the terms and pricing set out in this Agreement and Order Documents. Confidential Information does not include information that (a) is already known to the Recipient prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (b) is or becomes generally known through no wrongful act of the Recipient; (c) is independently developed by the Recipient without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; or (d) is received from a third party without restriction and without a breach of an obligation of confidentiality. The Recipient shall not use or disclose any Confidential Information without the Disclosing Party’s prior written permission, except to its employees, contractors, directors, representatives or consultants who have a need to know in connection with this Agreement or Recipient’s business generally, or as otherwise allowed herein. The Recipient shall protect the confidentiality of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own confidential information of a similar nature, but using not less than a reasonable degree of care. The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that it is required to be disclosed pursuant to a statutory or regulatory provision or court order, provided that the Recipient provides prior notice of such disclosure to the Disclosing Party, unless such notice is prohibited by law, rule, regulation or court order. As long as an Order Document is active under this Agreement and for two (2) years thereafter, and at all times while Customer Data is in Seeq’s possession, the confidentiality provisions of this Section shall remain in effect.

7. Security. Seeq will maintain and enforce commercially reasonable physical and logical security methods and procedures to protect Customer Data on the SaaS Software and to secure and defend the SaaS Software against “hackers” and others who may seek to access the SaaS Software without authorization. Seeq will test its systems for potential security vulnerabilities at least annually. Seeq will use commercially reasonable efforts to remedy any breach of security or unauthorized access. Seeq reserves the right to suspend access to the Seeq System in the event of a suspected or actual security breach. Customer will maintain and enforce commercially reasonable security methods and procedures to prevent misuse of the log-in information of its employees and other users. Seeq shall not be liable for any damages incurred by Customer or any third party in connection with any unauthorized access resulting from the actions of Customer or its representatives.

  1. Warranties.

a. Authority and Compliance with Laws. Each party warrants and represents that it has all requisite legal authority to enter into this Agreement and that it shall comply with all laws applicable to its performance hereunder including export laws and laws pertaining to the collection and use of personal data.

b. Industry Standards and Documentation. Seeq warrants and represents that the Software will materially conform to the specifications as set forth in the applicable Documentation. At no additional cost to Customer, and as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for nonconformity of the Software with this limited warranty, Seeq will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any such nonconformity, provided Customer promptly notifies Seeq in writing outlining the specific details upon discovery, and if such efforts are unsuccessful, then Customer may terminate, and receive a refund of all pre-paid and unused fees for, the affected Software. This limited warranty shall be void if the failure of the Software to conform is caused by (i) the use or operation of the Software with an application or in an environment other than as set forth in the Documentation, or (ii) modifications to the Software that were not made by Seeq or Seeq’s authorized representatives.

c. Malicious Code. Seeq will not introduce any time bomb, virus or other harmful or malicious code designed to disrupt the use of the Software, other than Seeq’s ability to disable access to the Software in the event of termination or suspension as permitted hereunder.


9. Indemnification by Seeq. Seeq shall indemnify, defend and hold Customer harmless from and against all losses (including reasonable attorney fees) arising out of any third-party suit or claim alleging that Customer’s authorized use of the Software infringes any valid U.S. or European Union patent or trademark, trade secret or other proprietary right of such third party. Customer shall: (i) give Seeq prompt written notice of such suit or claim, (ii) grant Seeq sole control of the defense or settlement of such suit or claim and (iii) reasonably cooperate with Seeq, at Seeq’s expense, in its defense or settlement of the suit or claim. To the extent that Seeq is prejudiced by Customer’s failure to comply with the foregoing requirements, Seeq shall not be liable hereunder. Seeq may, at its option and expense, (i) replace the Software with compatible non-infringing Software, (ii) modify the Software so that it is non-infringing, (iii) procure the right for Customer to continue using the Software, or (iv) if the foregoing options are not reasonably available, terminate the applicable Order Document and refund Customer all prepaid fees for Software applicable to the remainder of the applicable Subscription Term. Seeq shall have no obligation to Customer with respect to any infringement claim against Customer if such claim existed prior to the effective date of the applicable Order Document or such claim is based upon (i) Customer’s use of the Software in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement, (ii) the combination, operation, or use of the Software with third party material that was not provided by Seeq, if Customer’s liability would have been avoided in the absence of such combination, use, or operation, or (iii) modifications to the Software other than as authorized in writing by Seeq. THIS SECTION SETS FORTH SEEQ’S ENTIRE OBLIGATION TO CUSTOMER WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO INDEMNIFICATION UNDER THIS SECTION.

Upon expiration or termination of an Order Document, Seeq will disable access to the applicable SaaS Software, and Customer will uninstall and destroy all copies of the Software and Documentation on hardware under its control. Upon Customer request, Seeq will provide Customer with a copy of all Customer Data in Seeq’s possession, in a mutually agreeable format within a mutually agreeable timeframe. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (i) Seeq may retain backup copies of Customer Data for a limited period of time in accordance with Seeq’s then-current backup policy, and (ii) Seeq will destroy all Customer Data no later than 3 months after end of the Subscription Term or earlier, upon written request from Customer.
