  15. Confidentiality.
    1. Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any and all non-public information disclosed by one party or its Affiliates (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party or its Affiliates (the “Receiving Party”) in any form or medium, whether oral, written, graphical, or electronic, pursuant to this Agreement, that is designated confidential or proprietary, or that a reasonable person should understand is confidential or proprietary. Confidential Information includes, but is not limited to: the terms of this Agreement, information related to either party’s technology, products, know-how, trade secrets, specifications, customers, business plans, pricing information, promotional and marketing activities, finances, and other business affairs, and with respect to MadCap Software, the MadCap Properties.
    2. Nondisclosure Obligations. The Receiving Party will not use the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose other than as necessary to fulfill its obligations or to exercise its rights under this Agreement, and by MadCap Software to improve the MadCap Offerings (the “Purpose”). The Receiving Party will not disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to any third party; provided that the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, contractors, advisors, or representatives who need access to such Confidential Information for the Purpose and who are subject to written confidentiality obligations at least as stringent as the obligations set forth in this Section 15 (Confidentiality). Each party accepts responsibility for the actions of any individual or entity to whom it provides the other party’s Confidential Information, and will protect the other party’s Confidential Information in the same manner as it protects its own valuable confidential information, but with no less than reasonable care. The Receiving Party will promptly notify the Disclosing Party upon becoming aware of a breach or threatened breach hereunder, and will cooperate with any reasonable request of the Disclosing Party in enforcing its rights.
    3. Exceptions to Confidential Information. Confidential Information does not include information which: (i) is known by the Receiving Party prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party, free of any obligation of confidentiality; (ii) becomes known to the Receiving Party from a third party free of any obligation of confidentiality; (iii) lawfully becomes publicly known or otherwise publicly available, except through a breach of this Agreement; or (iv) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to the requirements of applicable law, legal process, or government regulation, but only after it notifies the Disclosing party (if legally permissible) to enable the Disclosing party to seek a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure, at the Disclosing Party’s expense.
    4. Injunctive Relief. The Parties agree that any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information would cause immediate and irreparable injury to the Disclosing Party and that, in the event of such breach, the Receiving Party will be entitled, in addition to any other available remedies, to seek immediate injunctive and other equitable relief, without bond and without the necessity of showing actual monetary damages.
  16. Limitation of Liability.
    1. LIABILITY CAP. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE COLLECTIVE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF MADCAP AND ITS AFFILIATES AND SUPPLIERS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRECEDING THE INITIAL INCIDENT GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY. THE EXISTENCE OF MULTIPLE CLAIMS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT ENLARGE SUCH LIMIT.
    2. EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL MADCAP SOFTWARE BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY DAMAGES FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOST PROFITS, LOST REVENUE, OR LOST BUSINESS, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF MADCAP SOFTWARE KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL MADCAP SOFTWARE BE LIABLE FOR THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
    3. EXCEPTIONS. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMERS OF DAMAGES SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY OF MADCAP SOFTWARE FOR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
  17. Term and Termination.
    1. Term. Each Order Form and Statement of Work begins on its effective date and, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, continues in effect through the term set forth therein. Unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, this Agreement will become effective on the Effective Date and continue in effect until all Order Forms have expired or been terminated (the “Term”).
      1. SaaS Service Term. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the term for SaaS Services will commence on the effective date of the applicable Order Form and continues in effect until the expiration of the subscription term indicated in the applicable Order Form (the “Initial SaaS Term”), after which the term shall automatically renew for additional successive terms of length equal to the Initial SaaS Term (each a “SaaS Renewal Term,” and together with the Initial SaaS Term, the “SaaS Term”) at MadCap Software’s then-current renewal pricing, unless a party gives the other party written notice of non-renewal at least sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the then-current SaaS Term. Customer agrees to be invoiced or charged for the applicable renewal fees in accordance with the same payment schedule and for the same level of SaaS Services as Customer’s then-current SaaS Services subscription.
      2. On-Premise Software Term. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the term for On-Premise Software shall commence on the date of license key generation and unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, shall remain in effect for an initial subscription period as indicated on the Order Form (the “Initial On-Premise Term”). In the event the Initial On-Premise Term is for a finite length of time, unless otherwise agreed on the Order Form, the term shall automatically renew for additional successive terms of length equal to the Initial On-Premise Term (each an “On-Premise Renewal Term,” and together with the Initial On-Premise Term, the “On-Premise Term”) at the then-current renewal pricing, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or a party gives the other party written notice of non-renewal at least sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the then-current On-Premise Term. Customer agrees to be invoiced or charged for the applicable renewal fees in accordance with the same payment schedule and for the same level of On-Premise Software license as the Initial On-Premise Term.
      3. On-Premise Software Return Policy. You may return your purchase of the On-Premise Software by delivering written notice to MadCap Software (the “Cancellation Notice”) as set forth in this section 17.1.3. If the Cancellation Notice is delivered to MadCap Software within fourteen (14) days of the applicable Order Form’s effective date, your access to the On-Premise Software shall terminate immediately, MadCap Software shall issue you a full refund of amounts paid to MadCap Software under the applicable Order Form for the canceled On-Premise Software, and you shall not owe any further fees for the canceled On-Premise Software. If the Cancellation Notice is delivered to MadCap Software more than fourteen (14) days after the applicable Order Form’s effective date, your access to the On-Premise Software shall continue until the end of the then-current monthly billing period and (i) if you pre-paid fees to MadCap Software for the entirety of the On-Premise Term of the canceled On-Premise Software (the “Pre-Paid Fees”), MadCap Software shall refund to you fifty percent (50%) of the Pre-Paid Fees on a pro rata basis for the number of months remaining in the On-Premise Term after the effective termination date or (ii) if you did not pre-pay for the On-Premise Term, you shall pay to MadCap Software within thirty (30) days of giving the Cancellation Notice an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of MadCap Software’s then-current monthly subscription price for the On-Premise Software multiplied by the number of months for which you contracted use of the On-Premise product. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 17.1.3 applies only to stand-alone purchases of the On-Premise Software and does not apply to any bundled or combination purchase of other MadCap Offerings.
    2. Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement or any Order Form or Statement of Work (i) on at least thirty (30) days’ written notice to the other party of a material breach of this Agreement by such other party if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period (or immediately if the material breach is not capable of being remedied); or (ii) immediately upon written notice if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation, or an assignment for the benefit of creditors.
    3. Effect of Termination or Expiration.
      1. Termination of Rights to Use. On termination or expiration of any Order Form, Customer’s license or subscription to the Products under the applicable Order Form will terminate and Customer and all Authorized Users will immediately cease use of such Products and either uninstall or destroy the On-Premise Software and Auxiliary Programs. Upon request by MadCap Software, Customer will certify in writing to MadCap Software that all copies of such On-Premise Software and Auxiliary Programs have been uninstalled or destroyed, and are no longer in use. On termination or expiration of this Agreement, each Receiving Party will return or destroy all Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in the Receiving Party’s possession or control. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MadCap Software will retain and make any Customer Data stored in the SaaS Service available on request by Customer in the format in which it is stored in the SaaS Service for a period of thirty (30) days following the effective date of termination. After such thirty (30)-day period, MadCap Software will have no obligation to maintain or provide any Customer Data and may thereafter, unless legally prohibited, delete all Customer Data in its systems or otherwise in its possession or under its control. For the avoidance of doubt, termination of one Order Form will not terminate any other Order Form.
      2. Payment upon Termination. Subject to Section 17.1.3, on expiration or termination of any Order Form, Customer will pay MadCap Software any unpaid fees and expenses covering the remainder of the term of such Order Form.
      3. Survival. The following provisions will survive expiration or termination of this Agreement: (i) any payment obligations of Customer hereunder; and (ii) 8 (Pricing, Invoicing, and Payments), 9 (Taxes), 10 (Restrictions), 11 (Ownership), 13 (MadCap Software Indemnity), 14 (Customer Indemnity), 15 (Confidentiality), 16 (Limitation of Liability), 17 (Term and Termination), 23 (Data Protection and Security), 24 (Notices), and 26 (Governing Law). The expiration or termination of this Agreement does not affect any rights which accrued before the date of expiration or termination.
  18. Audit. Customer grants MadCap Software, or its designated agent, the right to audit Customer’s use of the Products, on reasonable notice and during normal business hours, once in any twelve (12)-month period. Customer will reasonably cooperate with the audit and provide access to all records reasonably requested to verify Customer’s use of the Products as permitted by this Agreement. Customer will, without prejudice to other rights of MadCap Software, promptly address any non‑compliance identified by the audit.
  19. Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors and will so represent themselves in all regards.
  20. Force Majeure. Except for Customer’s payment obligations hereunder, neither party will be responsible for any failure to perform due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including acts of God, war, acts of terrorism (whether actual or threatened), riot or civil unrest, failure of electrical, Internet, co-location or telecommunications service, non-MadCap Software applications, denial of service or similar attacks, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, earthquakes, accidents, strikes, epidemics, quarantines, or energy crises.
  21. Assignment. Neither party may transfer or assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without the other’s prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MadCap Software, Inc. may, without Customer’s consent, assign this Agreement in its entirety to an entity who acquires all or substantially all of its business or assets, or in connection with a change in control (through merger, consolidation, reorganization, operation of law or otherwise). Any assignment in violation of this Section will be void and of no effect. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
  22. Compliance with Laws.
    1. By MadCap Software. MadCap Software will comply with all laws and regulations that apply to its provision of the MadCap Offerings, including applicable Privacy Laws. However, MadCap Software is not responsible for compliance with any laws or regulations that apply to Customer or Customer’s industry that are not generally applicable to information technology service providers. MadCap Software does not determine whether Customer Data includes information subject to any specific law or regulation.
    2. By Customer. Customer will comply with all laws and regulations that apply to its use of the MadCap Offerings, including applicable Privacy Laws. Customer is responsible for implementing and maintaining privacy protections and security measures for components that Customer provides or controls, and for determining whether the SaaS Service is appropriate for storage and processing of information subject to any specific law or regulation. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the On-Premise Software may communicate automatically with cloud-based technology to function and to make any On-Premise Software or other services offered by MadCap Software more effective. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that Customer may withdraw consent to such communication only by uninstalling and/or deactivating the On-Premise Software.
  23. Data Protection and Security.
    1. As between MadCap Software and Customer, Customer is the data controller of the Personal Information and MadCap Software shall process Personal Information only as a data processor acting on behalf of Customer in order to perform its obligations under this Agreement.
    2. MadCap Software will process Personal Information in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and its Privacy Policy. The parties agree that the Customer’s complete and final instructions are set out in this Agreement. Processing outside the scope of these instructions (if any) will require prior written agreement between Customer and MadCap Software with additional instructions for processing. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the Privacy Policy, the terms of this Agreement will control with respect to the MadCap Software Offering being purchased under this Agreement.
    3. MadCap Software has implemented and will maintain and follow commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures intended to protect Personal Information against accidental, unauthorized, or unlawful access or disclosure. Notwithstanding the above, Customer is responsible for its secure use of the Products, including securing its account authentication credentials, protecting the security of Personal Information when in transit to and from the SaaS Service, and taking any appropriate steps to securely encrypt or backup any Personal Information uploaded to the SaaS Service.
    4. If MadCap Software becomes aware of any loss, disclosure, or unauthorized use of Personal Information under the custody or control of MadCap Software (a “Security Incident”), MadCap Software will (i) promptly notify Customer of the Security Incident (provided that such notification may be delayed as required by a law enforcement agency); (ii) take reasonable steps to address any Security Incident and prevent any further Security Incident; and (iii) at Customer’s request, take commercially reasonable steps to assist Customer in complying with its obligations under applicable Privacy Laws pertaining to responding to a Security Incident.
    5. Notification(s) of Security Incidents will be delivered to one or more of Customer’s administrators by any means MadCap Software selects including via email. It is Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure Customer’s administrators maintain accurate contact information with MadCap Software. MadCap Software’ obligation to report or respond to a Security Incident under this Section is not an acknowledgement by MadCap Software of any fault or liability with respect to the Security Incident. Customer must notify MadCap Software promptly about any possible misuse of its accounts or authentication credentials or any security incident related to the SaaS Service.
    6. MadCap Software may transfer Personal Information to its Affiliates as necessary for MadCap Software to perform its obligations under this Agreement. Customer expressly acknowledges that Personal Information may be transferred to the United States, and Customer authorizes MadCap Software (where applicable) to transfer Personal Information to and process it in the United States, which may not have the same level of data protection as the country from which the Personal Information originated.
    7. Customer represents and warrants that it has the authority to provide the Customer Data, including Personal Information therein, to MadCap Software for processing as contemplated by this Agreement. If any applicable law requires a data subject to receive notice of or to provide consent to the processing and/or transfer of his/her Personal Information, Customer will provide such notice and obtain such consent from the applicable data subjects.
    8. MadCap Software will abide by applicable Privacy Laws pertaining to any relevant individual’s exercise of his or her rights to access, correct, or object to the processing of Personal Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless otherwise required by applicable Privacy Laws, MadCap Software will promptly notify Customer if MadCap Software receives a request from a data subject to have access to Personal Information or any other complaint or request relating to Customer’s obligations under applicable Privacy Laws. MadCap Software will provide reasonable assistance to Customer to facilitate Customer’s ability to respond to such request or complaint (including, without limitation, by allowing data subjects to have access to their Personal Information if such access is required by the applicable data protection laws, and where the Personal Information is not already available to the Customer).
    9. Customer consents to MadCap Software’ engaging third party sub-processors to process the Personal Information for the permitted purpose provided that: (i) MadCap Software maintains an up-to-date list of its sub-processors, which such list is available from MadCap Software at Customer’s request; (ii) MadCap Software imposes data protection terms on any sub-processor it appoints that require it to protect the Personal Information to the standard required by applicable Privacy Laws; and (iii) MadCap Software remains liable for any breach of this Section that is caused by an act, error, or omission of its sub-processor.
    10. Customer will provide MadCap Software with only the Personal Information necessary for MadCap Software to perform its obligations under this Agreement. The Customer acknowledges that the MadCap Offerings do not require the need to process Restricted Information; therefore, under no circumstances will Customer upload or otherwise transmit o the SaaS Service any Restricted Information. In the event that Customer provides MadCap Software with any Restricted Information inadvertently, MadCap Software will treat it in the same way in which it treats Personal Information under this Agreement.
    11. Following termination or expiration of the subscription to the SaaS Service, MadCap Software will, where required by applicable Privacy Laws and at the option of the Customer, return to Customer or securely delete all Personal Information processed in connection with the SaaS Service. This requirement shall not apply to the extent that MadCap Software is required by applicable law to retain some or all of the Personal Information, or to Personal Information it has archived on back-up systems, in which event MadCap Software shall securely protect from any further processing except to the extent required by such law.
  24. Notices; Complaints. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 23 (Data Protection and Security) regarding notification of a Security Incident, either party may give notice by written communication, sent by first class postage prepaid mail or nationally recognized overnight delivery service, to Customer at the address as specified in the latest Order Form or to MadCap Software at 9171 Towne Centre Dr #335, San Diego, CA, 92122, Attention: Support.

  25. Customer Reference. Customer agrees that MadCap Software may reference Customer as a MadCap Software customer on its website and marketing materials, subject to any Customer trademark and logo usage guidelines provided by Customer.
  26. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflicts of law principles. The parties hereby consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts sitting in San Diego County, California or the federal courts located in the Southern District of California. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is specifically excluded from application to this Agreement.
  27. Export Controls. Customer agrees to comply with applicable export and re-export laws, regulations and requirements. Customer further certifies that it will not export or re-export any software that may be subject to such laws, regulations and requirements, to any location, or to any end-user, or for any end-use, without first obtaining any export license, permit, or other approval that may be required.

Each party acknowledges that it has participated in negotiating this Agreement, and agrees that contractual ambiguities are not to be construed in favor of or against any party based on its role in drafting this Agreement. As used herein, the words “include” and “including” shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.” Performance of any obligation required by a party hereunder may be waived only by a written waiver signed by an authorized representative of the other party.
