THESE TERMS (“TERMS”) ARE AGREED BETWEEN YOU (“CUSTOMER”) AND SITEPEN, INC. (“SITEPEN”), AND GOVERN THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF SITEPEN SUPPORT SERVICES DESCRIBED BELOW (“SERVICES”).
HOWEVER, IF YOU HAVE REGISTERED AS OR ON BEHALF OF AN ENTITY, SUCH AS A CORPORATION, PARTNERSHIP, LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY OR OTHER ENTITY, “CUSTOMER” REFERS TO THE ENTITY, AND YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE POWER AND AUTHORITY TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS ON BEHALF OF THE ENTITY.
BY CLICKING THE "ACCEPT" BUTTON FOR THESE TERMS, SIGNING A SITEPEN SALES ORDER FORM AND/OR USING ANY OF THE SERVICES, CUSTOMER CONFIRMS ACCEPTANCE OF, AND AGREES TO BE BOUND BY, THESE TERMS.
(a) Subject to Customer’s compliance under these Terms, SitePen shall provide the support services to Customer that are listed on Exhibit A (“Support”) that Customer purchased for the corresponding product(s) on Exhibit A (“Supported Product”).
(b) Upon Customer’s acceptance of these Terms and/or payment for the Support, SitePen will send Customer login information for Support. To initiate a Support request, Customer is responsible for creating a ticket via support.sitepen.com. Customer is responsible for obtaining its own internet and email access. SitePen will acknowledge receipt of the Support request via an automated email and attempt to respond to Customer by email within the estimated time in Exhibit A.
(d) SitePen may request access to Customer systems or software to assist Customer in isolating the cause of the issue. Customer is responsible for adequately protecting its systems and data whenever SitePen accesses them.
(e) Support is not available under these Terms to resellers, distributors, consultants or other persons attempting to use or resell Support on behalf of multiple customers.
(f) SitePen may, at its discretion, withdraw Support from any Supported Product or version or release of a Supported Product, with thirty (30) days advance notice and a prorated refund, or may require Customer to upgrade to a supported version or release of a Supported Product or browser in order to continue receiving Support for such Supported Product. Support availability may occasionally deviate due to system maintenance, company events, U.S. holidays and events beyond SitePen control.
(g) Support availability may occasionally deviate due to system maintenance, company events, U.S. holidays and events beyond SitePen control.
(h) Support is provided primarily by web forum accompanied by email notifications with limited telephone support. On-site, in-person and other maintenance and support, training and professional services are not included, but may be available by separate, written agreement with SitePen.
Pricing and Payment. Support fees are listed in Exhibit A, and are payable in US dollars. SitePen may change pricing at the time of Support plan renewal. All Support purchases are non-cancelable and non-refundable, e.g., if these Terms or any Support is terminated by Customer before full performance of the Support requested, all remaining Support fees are non-refundable. The Support fees may be paid by credit card, if under US $5,000, or by wire transfer or check and must be paid by Customer according to the payment terms in Exhibit A. All taxes are Customer’s responsibility, other than taxes on SitePen income or profits.
Designated Contacts. Customer shall specify the name and contact information for up to the allowed number of designated contacts specified in Exhibit A under these Terms. They may be added and revised through the SitePen Support system interface after Customer has logged into the SitePen system.
Non-SitePen Products. The licensing of each Supported Product is governed by the terms of an end user license agreement between Customer and a third party. SitePen is not a party to that end user license agreement and assumes no obligations under it. Further, SitePen is an independent contractor and neither party is the agent or employee of the other.
Limited License to Support Deliverables. Subject to Customer’s compliance with these Terms, including payment, SitePen hereby grants Customer, with regards to any document, software or other item owned by SitePen and delivered to Customer in connection with Support (“Support Deliverable”), subject to the paragraph below titled “Free and Open Source Works”, a non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, transferable, worldwide license to make, have made, use, sell, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, distribute, display, and perform such items. Subject to such licenses, SitePen retains all ownership in and to any Support Deliverables, and all rights not granted hereunder are reserved to SitePen.
Free and Open Source Works. However, to the extent that any Support Deliverable makes use of, interfaces with, or includes any software and/or documentation owned by third parties that is licensed as free and/or open source software or documentation (“FOSS”), other than any Supported Product, SitePen will supply Customer with the name of each FOSS work and a copy of or link to the licensing terms and conditions for such FOSS work. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms or any other agreement between the parties, intellectual property rights or work product directly arising from Support performed on any FOSS work (such as any Supported Product) (“FOSS Rights”) will be contributed by SitePen back to the FOSS project per the terms of the project’s licenses and Customer shall have no ownership or license rights in such FOSS work except those provided by the applicable FOSS license. Customer is solely responsible for determining the acceptability of utilizing any FOSS work or license with any of its products, services or operations.
Limited License from Customer. Customer hereby grants SitePen a royalty-free, nonexclusive license (or sublicense) to any works and/or data that are owned or controlled by Customer and that are necessary or appropriate for SitePen to provide Support pursuant to these Terms.
Confidential Information. Neither party shall use, or disclose to any person, either during the term or after the termination of these Terms, any Confidential Information (as defined below) of the other party (or of its subsidiaries, affiliates, business partners, data providers and customers) except for performance under these Terms, for three (3) years from the last date of disclosure under these Terms. Each party shall use a commercially reasonable degree of care to avoid disclosure of any Confidential Information of the other party. "Confidential Information" means information concerning trade secrets and other proprietary rights, and any other business, marketing or technical information disclosed in relation to these Terms. If disclosed in writing, Confidential Information must be labeled as “Confidential” (or similar wording), and if disclosed orally, Confidential Information must be identified in writing as “Confidential” (or similar wording) within thirty (30) days after disclosure. However, Confidential Information shall not include information which (a) was already known to the receiving party prior to the time that it was disclosed to such receiving party hereunder; (b) is in or has entered the public domain through no breach of these Terms or other wrongful act of the receiving party; (c) has been rightfully received from a third party without knowledge of breach of any non-disclosure obligation; (d) has been approved for release by written authorization of the disclosing party; (e) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information, as evidenced by the receiving party’s written records or (f) is required to be disclosed by law, regulation or court order, provided that the disclosing party has been given reasonable notice of the need for disclosure and the opportunity to contest or limit it. The receiving party acknowledges that any breach of this paragraph will result in irreparable harm to the disclosing party, for which the disclosing party shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief.
Term. These Terms commence on the date that SitePen sends Customer login credentials for Support under these Terms (or if the Support is a renewal, the effective date of renewal), and unless terminated earlier, will remain in effect for the duration specified in Exhibit A.
Termination. Either party may terminate these Terms if the other party breaches any material term of these Terms and fails to cure such breach within five (5) days following written notice. The paragraphs entitled Pricing and Payment, Non-SitePen Products, Limited License, Free and Open Source Works, Confidential Information, Term, Termination, Warranty Disclaimer; Limitation of Liability and General survive expiration or termination of these Terms.

(b) LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST REVENUES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR LOST SAVINGS, OR COST OF COVER, IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, EVEN IF THE OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN INFORMED IN ADVANCE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SITEPEN’S LIABILITY UNDER THESE TERMS SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER UNDER THESE TERMS FOR THE RELEVANT SUPPORT PLAN DURING THE PRECEDING TWELVE (12) MONTHS. CUSTOMER agreeS that any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of SUPPORT, SUPPORT DELIVERABLES OR RIGHTS or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW IMPLIED WARRANTIES TO BE EXCLUDED OR MODIFIED OR LIABILITY TO BE LIMITED, SO NOT ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY APPLY TO CUSTOMER. THIS PARAGRAPH REPRESENTS SITEPEN’S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND CUSTOMER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.
(a) Successors and Assigns. Customer shall not assign or delegate or subcontract any of its rights or obligations under these Terms, whether by sale, merger or operation of law or otherwise, without SitePen’s prior written consent, and any attempt to do so shall be void. Except for the foregoing, these Terms benefit and bind the parties’ respective successors and assigns.
(b) No Solicitation/Hiring. During the term of these Terms and for one year thereafter, Customer (on behalf of itself and its affiliates) agrees not to solicit or hire any SitePen employees who have directly or indirectly supervised or provided Support under these Terms, without SitePen’s prior written consent. In the event that Customer (or its affiliate) hires a SitePen employee in violation of this paragraph, Customer will pay SitePen the equivalent of current year’s annual salary of the affected employee.
(c) Governing Law. These Terms will be governed by and construed under California law, excluding its conflicts of law principles. The U.N. Convention on the International Sales of Goods is excluded. Any legal action or proceeding arising under these Terms will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Santa Clara County, California and the parties hereby irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue therein.

(f) Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the complete and exclusive understanding and agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, regarding that subject matter. Any waiver or modification of these Terms must be in writing and signed by both parties. No different or additional terms on any purchase order shall be effective. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and any Exhibit A to these Terms, such Exhibit A shall control.
(g) Force Majeure. Neither party will be responsible for delays or failure of performance resulting from acts beyond the reasonable control of such party, which may include, but are not limited to, acts of God, strikes, walkouts, riots, acts of war or terrorism, epidemics, failures of the internet or telecommunications facilities, governmental regulations, power failures, earthquakes or other disaster.
(h) Waiver. The waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same other provisions hereof.
