If an individual is entering into this Agreement on behalf of an organization or other legal entity such organization shall be deemed the Customer hereunder and such individual hereby represents and warrants that she/he has the power and authority required to bind such organization to this Agreement.
This Agreement governs the use of the software solutions owned by Vivun identified in an Order Form, the Subscription Service, any Professional Services, any other products or services received from Vivun and its associated applications and website, by Customer, whether on a free or paid basis (collectively, the “Services”).

- Suspension of Services. Vivun reserves the right to suspend Customer’s access to the Services: (i) for scheduled or emergency maintenance, (ii) unavailability of services (including network and hosting services) provided by a third party service provider, or (iii) in the event Customer is in breach of this Agreement, including failure to pay any amounts due to Vivun.

- Suspension. Vivun may request that Customer suspend the account of any End User who: (i) violates the User Terms of Service; or (ii) is using the Services in a manner that Vivun reasonably believes may cause a security risk, a disruption to others’ use of the Services, or liability for Vivun. If Customer fails to promptly suspend or terminate such End User’s account, Vivun reserves the right to do so.Customer’s Use of Third Party Services
- Third-Party Applications. The Services have the ability to integrate with free and paid third-party applications used by Customer (“Third Party App”).

Following the end of the initial period, the Pay As You Go Plan will automatically renew for a period equal to the initial period on a recurring basis (e.g. if the initial plan is a month long, the Customer will be charged for an additional month on the first day after the initial month ends, and monthly thereafter until cancellation by Customer). Customer acknowledges and agrees that Vivun will not be required to obtain additional authorization for each periodic billing. If Customer does not want to continue to be charged on a recurring periodic basis, Customer must cancel the applicable paid subscription through Customer’s account page prior to the end of the period for which Customer has already paid. Except as expressly provided in these terms, Vivun will not refund any fees that Customer has already paid. Vivun may change the price for the Pay As You Go Plan, and will communicate any price changes to you in advance, and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for the Pay As You Go Plan will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price charge. If Customer does not agree with the price changes, Customer may unsubscribe from the services prior to the price change going into effect. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to subscribe to the services after the price change takes effect.

Any payment not received from Customer may accrue, at Vivun’s discretion, late charges at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower; from the date such payment was due until the date paid. In addition to any other rights granted to Vivun herein, Vivun reserves the right to suspend or terminate Customer’s use of the Services if Customer fails to pay any undisputed amount owed on or before its due date. If Customer or Vivun initiates termination of this Agreement, Customer will be obligated to pay the balance due on Customer’s account.

- Injunctive Relief. Customer acknowledges that any actual or threatened breach of this Section 7 may cause irreparable, non-monetary injury to Vivun, the extent of which may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, each Party is entitled to seek injunctive relief in addition to all remedies available at law and/or in equity.
- By Vivun. Vivun hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Customer and its employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors (together the “Customer Affiliates”), from and against any and all Losses arising from or as a result of any claim by a third party against Customer or Customer Affiliates to the extent based on an allegation that the Services or Vivun’s technology used to provide the Services infringes or misappropriates any copyright, trade secret, U.S. patent, or trademark right of the third party. In no event will Vivun have any obligations or liability under this section arising from: (i) use of the Services in a modified form or in combination with materials not furnished by Vivun; (ii) use of any Third Party App developed using Vivun’s API; or (iii) use of any content, information, or data provided by Customer, End Users, or other third parties.

- By Customer. Customer hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Vivun, its licensees and licensors, and their respective employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors (together, the “Vivun Affiliates”), from and against any and all liabilities, damages, obligations, losses, costs and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees) (together, the “Losses”) arising from or as a result of any claim by a third party against Vivun or the Vivun Affiliates regarding: (i) use of or access to the Services by Customer or its End Users in violation of this Agreement or our Terms of Service; or (ii) any data or Customer Data transmitted or received through, or posted or stored in, Customer’s account, or (iii) Customer’s use of the Services beyond the license granted in this Agreement misappropriates any copyright, trade secret, U.S. patent, or trademark right of the third party.
- Infringement Claims. If the Services become, or in Vivun’s reasonable judgment are likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement, then Vivun may: (i) obtain the right, at Vivun’s expense, for Customer to continue using the Services; (ii) provide a non-infringing functionally equivalent replacement; (iii) modify the Services so that it is no longer infringing. If Vivun, in its sole and reasonable judgment, determines that none of the above options are commercially reasonable, then Vivun may suspend or terminate Customer’s use of the Services and provide Customer with a pro rata refund of prepaid fees.
- Process. The party seeking indemnification will provide prompt notice concerning the existence of an indemnifiable claim and cooperate fully with the indemnifying party in defending the claim. Failure to give prompt notice shall not constitute a waiver of a party’s right to indemnification and shall affect the indemnifying party’s obligations hereunder only to the extent that the indemnifying party’s rights are materially prejudiced by such failure or delay. The indemnifying party will have full control and authority over the defense of any claim; provided, however, that: (i) the indemnified party may join in the defense at its own expense using counsel of its choice; and (ii) any settlement requiring the party seeking indemnification to admit liability or make any financial payment will require such party’s prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
- Limitation of Liability.
- Limitation of Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EXCEPT IN CONNECTION WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR (I) ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES; OR (II) LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS REVENUES, PROFITS (IN EACH CASE WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT), GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES.

EXCEPT IN CONNECTION WITH ITS INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, IN NO EVENT SHALL VIVUN BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY CLAIMS, PROCEEDINGS, LIABILITIES, OBLIGATIONS, DAMAGES, LOSSES OR COSTS IN AN AMOUNT EXCEEDING THE AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER TO VIVUN HEREUNDER DURING THE SIX (6) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY.
- Hosting of the Services; Export Restrictions. The Services are controlled and operated from facilities in the United States. Vivun makes no representations that the Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations.

- Modifications. Vivun may revise this Agreement at any time; provided, however, that no such modification shall include a reduction in Customer’s rights or Vivun’s obligations unless affirmatively agreed to by Customer in advance.

- Governing Law; Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT. This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Claims relating to this Agreement or the Services will be resolved through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth below. The parties agree that the Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions. Initial Dispute Resolution: The parties agree that most disputes can be resolved without resorting to litigation. The parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with each other, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. Accordingly, before initiating a lawsuit or arbitration, Customer Agrees to contact Vivun to attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith. Binding Arbitration & Class Action Waiver: If the parties do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time the informal dispute resolution is initiated under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to the Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Thus, THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the disputes, claims or controversies will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated in state or federal court located in Alameda County, California. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of the Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of the Agreement is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the Parties and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Arbitration will be held in Alameda County, California. If any court or arbitrator determines that this arbitration provision is void or unenforceable for any reason or that the parties are not bound to arbitrate their claims, then the disputes, claims or controversies deemed not to be subject to arbitration must be litigated in state or federal court located in Alameda County, California.

If a court of competent jurisdiction deems any provision of this Agreement invalid, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions hereof, which shall remain in full force and effect.
