INDEMNITY Each party (as the “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) the Content or User’s use of the Service (in the case of User as Indemnitor), or (ii) the Service (in the case of ChangeEngine 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: (i) 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); (ii) 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 (iii) reasonable information and assistance in connection with such defense and settlement (at the Indemnitor’s expense). The foregoing obligations of ChangeEngine 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 ChangeEngine (including without limitation any Content), (ii) made in whole or in part in accordance to User specifications, (iii) modified after delivery by ChangeEngine, (iv) combined with other products, processes or materials not provided by ChangeEngine (where the alleged Losses arise from or relate to such combination), (v) where User continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (vi) User’s use of the Service is not strictly in accordance herewith.

Term and Termination
Term. This Agreement shall commence upon the Effective Date and, unless earlier terminated in accordance herewith, shall last until the expiration of all Terms under all applicable Order Forms. For each Order Form, the “Term” shall begin as of the effective date set forth on such Order Form, and unless earlier terminated as set forth herein, shall continue for the initial term specified on the Order Form (the “Initial Term”), and (y) following the Initial Term, shall automatically renew for additional successive periods of one year each (each, a “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 Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable.
Termination. 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, ChangeEngine may suspend or limit User’s access to or use of the Service if (i) User’s account is more than sixty (60) days past due, or (ii) User’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 ChangeEngine’s ability to provide access to the Service to other customers; provided that in the case of subsection (ii): (a) ChangeEngine shall use reasonable good faith efforts to work with User 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, ChangeEngine shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide notice to User describing the nature of the damage or degradation; and (c) ChangeEngine shall reinstate User’s use of or access to the Service, as applicable, if User remediates the issue within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice. User has no right to terminate for convenience.
Effects of Termination. If User terminates the subscription for ChangeEngine’s breach prior to the end of the applicable Term, ChangeEngine will provide a pro-rated refund to User of Licensing Fees for the applicable Term based on the date ChangeEngine receives User’s notice of termination. If this Agreement is terminated by ChangeEngine for User’s breach, or by User without cause, no refunds will be provided and, unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Order Form, User shall be obligated to pay, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, the remainder of the Licensing Fees due for the applicable Term under such Order Form. In no event shall any termination relieve you of the obligation to pay any Licensing Fees payable to ChangeEngine for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
Survival. Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, all rights, obligations and licenses of the parties shall cease, except that the following provisions shall survive: Section 2.4, 2.6 the second sentence of Section 3.2, Sections 4.1, 5, 6, 8.2, 8.5 and 9-12 (inclusive).
Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all applicable Order Forms, constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all prior negotiations, understandings or agreements (oral or written), between the parties about the subject matter of this Agreement. No waiver, consent or, except as expressly provided herein, modification of this Agreement shall bind either party unless in writing and signed by the party against which enforcement is sought. The failure of either party to enforce its rights under this Agreement at any time for any period will not be construed as a waiver of such rights. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Unless waived by ChangeEngine in its sole discretion, exclusive jurisdiction and venue for actions related to this Agreement will be the state or federal courts located in San Francisco, California, and both parties consent to the jurisdiction of such courts with respect to any such action. In any action or proceeding to enforce or interpret this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party its costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with such action or proceeding and enforcing any judgment or order obtained.
Notices. Any notice or communication hereunder shall be in writing and either personally delivered or sent via confirmed facsimile, recognized express delivery courier or certified or registered mail, prepaid and return receipt requested, addressed to the other party at its address specified above, or at such other address designated in a subsequent notice. All notices shall be in English, effective upon receipt.
Assignment. User shall not assign this Agreement without ChangeEngine’s consent. ChangeEngine may freely assign or transfer this Agreement (in whole or in part) without consent.
No Agency. Notwithstanding anything else, the parties are independent contractors, and this Agreement does not create an agency, partnership, or joint venture.
Headings. Headings herein are for convenience of reference only and shall in no way affect interpretation of this Agreement.
Linked Websites. The Service or Website may contain links to third-party websites which are not under our control, and we are not responsible for their content.
Changes. ChangeEngine reserves the right to, without materially affecting the functionality of the Services: (1) discontinue, impose limits on, or restrict access to any aspect of the Services at any time, with or without cause or notice, including the availability of any of the features, delivery services, databases, or content, or (2) edit or delete any materials appearing in the Services.
No Waiver. Failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect our right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default hereunder constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself.
Severability. In the event that any part of the Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect.
Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder (except for the payment of money) on account of events beyond the reasonable control of such party, which may include without limitation denial-of-service attacks, strikes (except by its own employees), shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, acts of God, war, terrorism, governmental action, labor conditions, earthquakes and material shortages (each a “Force Majeure Event”). Upon the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event, the non-performing party will be excused from any further performance of its obligations effected by the Force Majeure Event for so long as the event continues and such party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to resume performance.
Compliance with Laws. Each party agrees to comply with all applicable laws, including U.S. export laws, and regulations with respect to its activities hereunder.
Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges that a breach by the other party of any confidentiality or proprietary rights provision of this Agreement may cause the non-breaching party irreparable damage, for which the award of damages would not be adequate compensation. Consequently, the non-breaching party may institute an action to enjoin the breaching party from any and all acts in violation of those provisions, which remedy shall be cumulative and not exclusive, and a party may seek the entry of an injunction enjoining any breach or threatened breach of those provisions, in addition to any other relief to which the non-breaching party may be entitled at law or in equity.
No Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the signatories and is not intended to benefit any third party.
Digital Millennium Copyright Act. ChangeEngine complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) with regard to material on the Website that allegedly violates a third party’s copyright. We respect others’ intellectual property rights, and we reserve the right to delete or disable Content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate the accounts of repeat alleged infringers.
