3.4. Responsibility for Authorized Users. Client will be responsible and liable for all Authorized Users’ use and access and their compliance with this Agreement. Client will be solely responsible for authorizing and creating user IDs, passwords, and other access credentials for Authorized Users. Client is solely responsible for determining its Authorized Users and restricting and/or terminating the rights of such users during the Subscription Term, as Client deems appropriate.

This Section 3.7 and any relevant Additional Terms will apply to any Free Access Subscription or Beta Release (even if a Beta Release is provided for a fee or counts towards Client’s Scope of Use allocations) and supersedes any contrary provision in this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Section 6 (Availability of Services; Support) will not apply to any Free Access Subscription or Beta Release.

Podium makes no guarantees or promises with respect to the continued availability of any Free Access Subscriptions or Beta Releases or that future versions of a Free Access Subscription or Beta Release will be released or will be available under the same commercial or other terms. Podium may discontinue Beta Releases at any time, in our sole discretion, and decide not to make any Beta Releases generally available. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Podium may terminate Client’s right to use any Free Access Subscription or Beta Release at any time for any reason or no reason in Podium’s sole discretion, without liability.

Podium will not distribute Aggregate/Anonymous Data in a manner that personally identifies Client or its Customers, or that would otherwise violate applicable Laws. If Client and Podium have entered into a BAA, Podium will use the Aggregate/Anonymous Data only in conformity with the terms of such agreement.
4.3. Monitoring.

5. CLIENT OBLIGATIONS.
5.1. Warranty. Client warrants and represents that it will use the Services in full compliance with all Laws and terms of this Agreement, including the Acceptable Use Policy, and that it will not use the Services in a manner that would cause Podium to violate any obligation with respect to any such Laws.

Use of the Services does not guarantee compliance with applicable Laws or the Acceptable Use Policy, and Podium expressly disclaims any liability for Client’s non-compliance. Podium reserves the right to suspend or terminate Client’s access to the Services or specific feature(s) of the Services if Podium believes, in its sole discretion, that Client has violated this Section 5.
6. AVAILABILITY OF SERVICES; SUPPORT.
6.1. Availability. Subject to the terms of this Agreement and any scheduled maintenance and unavailability caused by: (a) actions or omissions of Client; (b) failures, errors, or defects in the facilities, hardware, software, or network of Client; or (c) circumstances that constitute a force majeure event or that are beyond Podium’s reasonable control, the Services will be available for access via the Website 99.0% of the time during of the applicable Subscription Term. Client’s sole remedy and Podium’s sole liability for failure to meet the aforementioned availability will be support in accordance with Section 6.2.
6.2. Support. Podium makes available web-based support through the Website. Additional support services may be available to Client subject to payment of applicable fees (if any), as specified in any applicable Subscription Documentation. Any support services are subject to this Agreement and Podium’s applicable support policies, if any. Client is primarily responsible for its own account setup and onboarding. Podium may also provide onboarding, deployment, and other services under this Agreement, including via Third-Party Providers or subcontractors. If applicable, the scope, pricing, and other terms for these additional services will be set forth in the applicable Subscription Documentation. Podium’s ability to deliver the Services will depend on Client’s reasonable and timely cooperation and the accuracy and completeness of any information from Client needed to deliver the Services.
7. FEES AND PAYMENT.
7.1. Fees. Unless otherwise specified on the applicable Subscription Documentation, the Services are provided on an ongoing, per-license subscription-basis including automatically recurring payments for periodic charges, according to the terms and conditions referenced in the Subscription Documentation (“Subscription”). Client agrees to pay to Podium the fees for the Subscription to the Services or any Bundle (“Subscription Fees”) and any additional fees (if applicable), all as set forth in the applicable Subscription Documentation or Additional Terms (collectively, the “Fees”). Except as otherwise specified in the applicable Subscription Documentation, unless Client terminates a Free Access Subscription prior to the lapse of the Free Access Subscription Term, such Services will convert to a paid Subscription and Client agrees to pay Podium the applicable Subscription Fees according to the terms of this Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Subscription Documentation, payment for all Fees is due within thirty (30) days of the invoice date.
7.2. Payment of Fees. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Subscription Documentation, all Subscription Fees will be paid annually in advance, though overage fees (if any) may be charged in arrears, and all references to currency set forth herein will mean U.S. dollars, with all payments hereunder to be made in U.S. dollars. Subscription Fees are non-refundable and non-creditable, except as expressly set forth in Sections 2.3 (Modification of the Services) and 8.3 (Termination for Cause). If the payment method selected on the applicable Subscription Documentation is credit card, ACH, or direct debit, Client authorizes Podium to charge the Subscription Fees automatically, on an auto-renew basis on your Subscription Start Date (as defined below) for each subsequent Subscription Term. For the avoidance of doubt, all additional Subscription Fees for additional Services accessed by Client will be billed when the Service is first accessed by Client and automatically, on an auto-renew basis on Client’s existing Subscription Start Date. The Subscription will continue unless and until you or Podium terminate your Subscription in accordance with Section 8. You must cancel your Subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing the next periodic Subscription Fees to your account. If Client elects to pay by credit card, then you are responsible for both (a) enabling auto-recharge on your account and (b) ensuring that your account has a sufficient positive balance to cover all Fees when due. Should Podium be unable to process/receive the Fees when due and owing, payment shall be considered overdue. Podium will have the right to charge interest on all overdue amounts equal to the maximum amounts allowed by applicable Law. Additionally, after payment becomes overdue, Podium will have the right to immediately suspend Client’s access to the Services and/or seek to enforce Client’s payment obligations including through the use of third-party services.
7.3. Taxes. Podium’s Fees are exclusive of all taxes and regulatory fees, and Client must pay any applicable taxes regulatory fees, or levies, whether domestic or foreign, other than taxes based on the income of Podium. Client will make tax and regulatory fee payments to Podium to the extent amounts are included on Podium’s invoices.
7.4. Fee Increase. Podium reserves the right to determine the applicable Fees for any Services. While Podium will make reasonable efforts to keep the information relating to Fees published on its Website up to date, you should check the Website periodically for information about current Fees. If any Fees are specified on your Subscription Documentation, Podium may increase Fees applicable to you upon forty-five (45) days’ prior written notice, effective on the start date of your subsequent Subscription Term. Additionally, notwithstanding the foregoing, Podium may adjust the Payments Services Fees as set forth in the Payments Service Terms. Podium may also, from time to time and in its sole discretion, make promotional offers or different Fees available to its clients or other users. Such promotional offers will not apply to you or this Agreement unless specified in writing in your Subscription Documentation.
8. TERM AND TERMINATION.
8.1. Term. This Agreement is effective until the applicable Subscription Term for the Services has expired or the Subscription is terminated as expressly permitted herein. Unless otherwise stated in Client’s Subscription Documentation, the initial term for any Subscription to the Services is twelve (12) months and will automatically renew for subsequent periods of equal duration (the “Subscription Term”), unless either party gives written notice of non-renewal at least one (1) month before the end of the then-current Subscription Term. Client may give notice of non-renewal by sending an email to [email protected]. If no Subscription start date is specified on the applicable Subscription Documentation, the Subscription starts when Client first obtains access to the Services (“Subscription Start Date”). By agreeing to any Subscription Documentation, Client is agreeing to pay applicable fees for the entire Subscription Term. Client cannot cancel or terminate a Subscription Term except as expressly permitted by this Section 8.1 or Section 8.3 (Termination for Cause). Unless Client’s Subscription Documentation expressly states otherwise, any additional Services purchased during Client’s Subscription Term will be coterminous with Client’s most recent Podium platform Subscription Term.
8.2. Suspension of Services. Podium may suspend Client’s (or any Authorized User’s, as applicable) access to the Services if: (a) Client’s account is overdue, or (b) Client has exceeded its Scope of Use limits. Podium may also suspend Client’s (or any Authorized User’s, as applicable) access to the Services, remove Client Data, or disable Third-Party Products if it determines that: (i) Client has breached Sections 3 (Use Rights; Restrictions) or 5 (Client Obligations); or (ii) suspension is necessary to prevent harm or liability to other clients of Podium or third parties or to preserve the security, stability, availability, or integrity of the Services. Podium will have no liability for taking action as permitted above. For avoidance of doubt, Client will remain responsible for payment of Fees during any suspension period. Unless this Agreement has been terminated, Podium will cooperate with Client to restore access to the Services once it verifies that Client has resolved the condition requiring suspension.
8.3. Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement, including any related Subscription Documentation, if the other party: (a) fails to cure any material breach of this Agreement (including a failure to pay fees) within thirty (30) days after written notice detailing the breach; (b) ceases operation without a successor; or (c) seeks protection under any bankruptcy, receivership, trust deed, creditors’ arrangement, composition, or comparable proceeding, or if any such proceeding is instituted against that party (and not dismissed within sixty (60) days thereafter). If Client terminates during the Subscription Term for any reason other than the foregoing, Client will be responsible for the Fees due for the entire Subscription Term. Podium may also terminate this Agreement or any related Subscription Documentation immediately if Client breaches Sections 3 (Use Rights; Restrictions) or 5 (Client Obligations), for repeated violations of other Sections of this Agreement, or if applicable, a breach of the parties’ BAA.
8.4. Effect of Termination. Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement or any Subscription Documentation: (a) Client’s license rights will terminate and it must immediately cease use of the Services (including any related Podium Technology) and delete (or, at Podium’s request, return) any and all copies of any Podium documentation, scripts, passwords or access codes, and any other Podium Confidential Information in Client’s possession, custody, or control; and (b) Client’s right to access any Client Data in the applicable Services will cease, and unless otherwise precluded by a BAA, Podium may delete any such data in its possession at any time. If Podium terminates this Agreement for cause as provided in Section 8.3 (Termination for Cause), any payments for the remaining portion of the Subscription Term will become due and must be paid immediately by Client. Except where this Agreement specifies an exclusive remedy, all remedies under this Agreement, including termination or suspension, are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies that may be available to a party.
8.5. Survival. The following Sections survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement: 1 (Definitions); 3 (Use Rights; Restrictions); 4 (Client Data); 7 (Fees and Payment); 8 (Term and Termination); 9 (Confidential Information); 10 (Podium Technology); 11 (Third-Party Providers and Third-Party Products); 12 (Indemnification); 13 (Disclaimers); 14 (Limitations of Liability); 15 (Dispute Resolution); and 16 (General).
9. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
9.1. Obligation of Confidentiality. Except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement, each party (as the receiving party) must: (a) hold in confidence and not disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to third parties; and (b) use the other party’s Confidential Information only as necessary to fulfill its obligations and exercise its rights under this Agreement. Each party may share the other party’s Confidential Information with its employees, agents, contractors, subcontractors, or Authorized Users having a legitimate need to know (which, for Podium, includes the subcontractors referenced in Section 16.6), provided that such party remains responsible for any recipient’s compliance with the terms of this Section 9 and these recipients are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective than this Section.
9.2. Exclusions. These confidentiality obligations do not apply to (and Confidential Information does not include) information that: (a) is or becomes public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; (b) was known by the receiving party prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (c) is rightfully obtained by the receiving party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (d) is independently developed by the receiving party without using the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. A party may also disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to the extent required by law, subpoenas, or court orders, provided it uses commercially reasonable efforts to notify the other party where permitted to do so) and cooperates in any effort by the other party to obtain confidential treatment for the information.
9.3. Remedies. The parties acknowledge that disclosure of Confidential Information may cause substantial harm for which damages alone may be an insufficient remedy, and so upon breach of this Section, each party is entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to any other remedies it may have at law.
10. PODIUM TECHNOLOGY.
10.1. Ownership and Updates. By accepting this Agreement, Client acknowledges that it is obtaining only a limited right to use the Services and irrespective of any use of the words “purchase”, “sale”, or similar terms, no ownership rights are transferred to Client under this Agreement and, except as expressly permitted by such limited right, Client may not make any use of Podium Technology. Client agrees that Podium (or its suppliers) exclusively retains all rights, title, and interest (including all intellectual property rights) in and to all Services, products, any and all related documentation, software, technology, code, know-how, logos, trademarks, service marks, and templates (including in any reports or output obtained from the Services), anything delivered as part of support, materials or other services, and any updates, modifications, or derivative works of any of the foregoing, including as may incorporate any Feedback (as defined below) (“Podium Technology”) provided by Podium (which is deemed Podium’s Confidential Information) and reserves any licenses not specifically granted herein. Furthermore, Podium exclusively owns and reserves all right, title, and interest in and to Podium’s Confidential Information and any data, in anonymized or aggregated form that does not identify you, any end users, or any natural person, generated or derived from the use or operation of the Services, including volumes, frequencies, bounce rates, and performance results for the Services. The Services are offered as an online, hosted product.

Client Responsibility.  Other than the Hosting Services specified in paragraph 8.b.i., Client assumes sole responsibility for everything necessary or required for the proper and secure functioning of the Client Business Model.  Without limiting the foregoing, Client assumes sole responsibility for: (a) the administration, marketing, and operations of Client’s service business; (b) the accuracy of the contents contained on, and the proper use of, the Client Business Model; (c) ensuring the contents of the Client Business Model do not infringe on or violate any applicable statute, ordinance, law, regulation or the rights of any third party; and (d) providing all data transmitted to, gathered by, or related to the Client Business Model.  Client shall not place or cause to be placed on the AGS Server content which violates any applicable law or regulation or any proprietary, contract, privacy or other third party right, or which may expose AGS to civil or criminal liability.  AGS reserves the right to exclude or remove any content from the AGS Server and the Client Business Model if AGS determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, said content may violate any law, violate or infringe any third party right, potentially expose AGS to civil or criminal liability, or is otherwise deemed inappropriate.
  15. Limitation of liability.  Client understands and agrees that under no circumstances, shall AGS, or any of its directors, officers, employees, suppliers, agents, and other representatives be liable for any direct or indirect losses or damages arising out of or in connection with this Agreement; the Hosting Services; the Set Up Services; the Training Services; the Client Business Model; third parties accessing or using the Client Business Model; the actions or inactions of Client or AGS;  the interruption or failure of the AGS Server; or any security breach. This is a comprehensive release of liability that applies to all losses and damages of any kind, including, without limitation, direct, indirect, general, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary, statutory, contractual, or damages or losses of any other kind or type.  This limitation of liability applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, negligence, tort, strict liability, or any other basis and even if AGS knew or should have known of the possibility of such damages.  The foregoing provisions shall be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
  16. Waiver of claims.  Client hereby waives any and all claims, demands, actions, or causes of action of any kind Client may have directly or indirectly against AGS or its affiliates, or any of their respective managers, directors, officers, members, shareholders, employees, contractors, agents or other representatives resulting from, arising out of, or in anyway connected with or related to this Agreement, the Hosting Services; the Set Up Services; the Training Services; the Client Business Model; third parties accessing or using the Client Business Model; the actions or inactions of Client or AGS;  the interruption or failure of the AGS Server; or any security breach.

  18. Relationship of the parties.  AGS and Client are, and will act as, independent contractors.  Nothing in this Agreement is intended to or shall be construed to constitute an agency, joint venture, partnership, or fiduciary relationship between the parties; and neither party shall have the right or authority or shall hold itself out as having the right or authority to bind the other party.
  19. MARKS
  20. Ownership.  All trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos or other words or symbols identifying the Model or AGS’s business (the “Marks”) are and will remain the exclusive property of AGS or its licensors, whether or not specifically recognized or perfected under local law.  Client will not take any action that jeopardizes AGS’s or its licensors’ proprietary rights or acquires any right in the Marks, except the limited use rights specified in Section 16(b).  Client will not register, directly or indirectly, any trademark, service mark, trade name, copyright, company name or other proprietary or commercial right that is identical or confusingly similar to the Marks.  Upon AGS’s request, Client will execute the instruments that may be appropriate to register, maintain or renew the registration of the Marks in AGS’s or its licensors’ name.
  21. Use.  Client will use the Marks exclusively to advertise and promote the Model. All advertisements and promotional materials will (i) clearly identify AGS or its licensors as the owner of the Marks, and (ii) conform to AGS’s then-current trademark and logo guidelines.  Before publishing or disseminating any advertisement or promotional materials bearing a Mark, Client will deliver a sample of the advertisement or promotional materials to AGS for prior approval.  If AGS notifies Client that the use of the Mark is inappropriate, Client will not publish or otherwise disseminate the advertisement or promotional materials until they have been modified to AGS’s satisfaction.
  22. Client Information and Data.  During the course of this Agreement, AGS shall have access to and possess information and data regarding Client, Authorized Users, and third parties (“Authorized User Information and Data”).  To the extent Client possesses a proprietary interest in Authorized User Information and Data, Client hereby grants AGS a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty free, license to utilize in any manner and for any purpose any and all Authorized User Information and Data.

  26. Survival.  The parties agree that paragraphs 2, 9.d, 10-14, 16, 17, and 21-27 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
  27. Waiver.  If one party agrees to waive its right to enforce any term of this Agreement, it does not waive its right to enforce such term, or any or all other terms, of this Agreement at any other time.
  28. Governing Law and Choice of Forum.  This Agreement was entered into in the State of Illinois, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Illinois law.  Any claim or dispute
    related to or arising out of this Agreement shall reside in the courts of the State of Illinois, and in particular in either the Kane County Circuit Court or the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
  29. Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is invalidated or held unenforceable, the invalidity or unenforceability of that provision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement.  In addition, the parties agree that as to any provision found to be invalid or unenforceable, the same shall not be void, but shall be reformed and enforced to the
    maximum extent permissible under applicable law, as if originally executed in that form by the parties.
  30. Amendments.  No amendment, change, waiver, or discharge hereof shall be valid unless in writing and signed by AGS and Client.
