- Customer Hosted Deployment. If Customer has licensed the Services pursuant to a Customer Hosted Deployment, Zuva shall provide a script or app, either within the Application or separately that Customer shall use to extract usage statistics (the “Customer Reported Usage Data”) and provide it to Zuva on a quarterly basis. To the extent that any personal data is collected (solely limited to names and email addresses of Users), this portion of the Customer Reported Usage Data will only be used for the purposes of Customer support and furtherance of Zuva’s obligations under this Agreement and Zuva will comply with any applicable data protection legislation in respect of that data. If Additional Usage Charges apply for a Customer Hosted Deployment, Zuva will invoice Customer quarterly. Zuva shall have the right to conduct an audit of a Customer Hosted Deployment Customer’s books and records to confirm compliance with the terms of this section. Such audit shall be conducted by a mutually acceptable public accounting firm. Customer agrees to cooperate with Zuva in the conduct of such audit within 30 days of notice. In the event such audit discloses an underpayment, Customer shall pay Zuva the amount of such underpayment within ten days of demand. Customer shall also be responsible for the cost of the audit if the underpayment exceeds 5% of the Fees paid for the period covered by the audit.
- Suspension. Zuva reserves the right to suspend Customer’s access to the Services on ten days’ written notice to Customer if Customer fails to pay any amounts (other than such amounts as are then subject to good faith dispute) when due. If this agreement is for a trial of Zuva, and Customer exceeds their usage limitation of the Services by more that 20% on any given day, Zuva may suspend Customer’s access without notice or warning. Such suspension may apply for as long as Zuva chooses, including for the duration of the remaining Term.
- Term. The term of this Agreement (the “Term”) shall commence on the Effective Date and continue for the period stated in the Order Form, unless terminated sooner in accordance with this section. Unless (1) otherwise specified on the Order Form or (2) this is a free trial, the Term shall be automatically extended for successive one-year Periods (each a “Renewal Period”), unless either Party provides the other Party with written notice of non-renewal at least 30 days prior to the next upcoming renewal date.
- For Breach. Without limitation of its other rights or remedies, either Party may terminate this Agreement by reason of a material breach of this Agreement, including any Order Form, by the other Party, which breach shall not have been cured within 30 days following receipt of notice of such breach from the non-breaching Party. In addition, Zuva may immediately terminate this Agreement upon Customer’s breach of any of the license restrictions set in Section 5 of this Agreement.
- For Applicable Law. Zuva may terminate this Agreement immediately on written notice if Zuva reasonably believes that (a) continued provision of any Service used by Customer would violate Applicable Law(s) or (b) Customer has violated or caused Zuva to violate any anti-bribery laws or export control laws.
- Effect of Termination. For the avoidance of doubt: upon any termination of this Agreement, all outstanding Order Form(s) shall also simultaneously terminate, as well as all rights to use the Services, and all fees owed by Customer to Zuva are immediately due upon Customer’s receipt of the final electronic bill or as stated in the final invoice. Customer shall be responsible for downloading or deleting any Documents or Customer Data from the Services upon termination. If Customer has a Customer Hosted Deployment, it shall delete all copies of the Services in its possession or control within 30 days following termination.

If a claim is made against Customer that is subject to indemnification under this Section, Zuva shall either: (i) obtain for Customer the right to continue to use the Services; or (ii) modify or replace the Services with a non-infringing substitute that provides substantially the same performance and functionality of the original Services; provided, however, that if Zuva reasonably determines that it is not commercially practicable to effectuate the actions described in the foregoing clauses (i) or (ii), Zuva shall have the right to terminate this Agreement, in which case it shall provide Customer with a refund of any prepaid sums with respect to the balance of the Term. This Section sets forth Customer’s sole remedy, and Zuva’s sole liability, in connection with claims of infringement.
- Customer. Customer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Zuva and its officers, directors, employees and agents from any and all lawsuits, damages, liabilities, costs, charges, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any third-party claim related to the Customer Applications, Customer Data or Documents, the use thereof, or any transactions related thereto.

The indemnifying Party shall keep the indemnified Party informed of the progress of any claim it is defending and shall consult with the indemnified Party prior to any settlement or compromise. The indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in the defense or settlement of any such claim with counsel of its own choosing at its own expense.

At all times, the Receiving Party shall: (I) use the same standard of care to protect the Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature, but not less than a commercially reasonable standard of care; (II) not use the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information other than as permitted under this Agreement; and (III) not disclose, distribute, or disseminate the Confidential Information to any third party (apart from its attorneys, accountants, contractors or consultants (“Representatives”), who are directed to hold the Confidential Information in the strictest confidence and are bound by applicable contractual or fiduciary obligations of confidentiality at least substantially as stringent as the provisions contained herein.

If, in the absence of a protective order or other remedy, Receiving Party is nonetheless legally compelled to disclose Confidential Information, Receiving Party may, without liability hereunder, disclose that portion of the Confidential Information which is legally required to be disclosed, provided that Receiving Party exercises reasonable efforts to preserve the confidentiality of the Confidential Information, including, without limitation, by cooperating with the Disclosing Party to obtain an appropriate protective order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the Confidential Information.

Zuva shall provide the Services in accordance with the (I) Zuva DocAI Security Overview to be provided to Customer on request; (II) if applicable, the Data Protection Addendum as required by applicable Data Protection Laws (as defined therein). Zuva will notify Customer of a material security breach incident that directly impacts Customer without undue delay following the discovery of such incident.
