1. SERVICES. Upon the Effective Date, and as of the Commencement Date and continuing for the remainder of the Term, Logicworks shall provide the mAzure Services to Client in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
(a) Logicworks shall provide to Client a managed service (“mAzure Services”) for Microsoft Cloud Resources as set forth in any Service Order agreed by the parties”. “Microsoft Cloud Resources” are cloud-computing resources that are provided by Microsoft (“Microsoft”) and resold to Client by Logicworks as part of the Microsoft Cloud Online Services. “Logicworks Surcharges” are fees based on, and in addition to, Microsoft Cloud Resources charges for services and are Logicworks’ costs associated with, and including but not limited to services for billing, licensing, and management of the monthly Microsoft Cloud Resources consumed. Separately, “Managed Services” means the consulting, design, implementation, deployment, monitoring, alerting, remediation, engineering, management, support and other Services that Logicworks performs and are identified in a Service Order. By signing the mAzure Cover Page, Client acknowledges that its use of Microsoft Cloud Resources are subject to The Microsoft Cloud Agreement as described in (c) below.
(b) Any future services in addition to the Microsoft Cloud Resources, Logicworks Surcharges and Managed Services the Parties may agree to (“Additional Services”) shall be set forth in an additional Service Order, and shall at such time be incorporated into, and become part of this Agreement. The Microsoft Cloud Resources, Managed Services and Additional Services shall collectively be referred to as the “Services”.
(c) Client’s use of the Microsoft Cloud Resources is governed by this Agreement and the Microsoft Cloud Agreement currently available online at the following site: http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/onlineuserights (the “Microsoft Azure Agreement”). In accordance with the Microsoft Azure Agreement, Microsoft may capture, retain and use network or usage information whenever Client uses the Microsoft Cloud Resources. Microsoft’s current privacy notice can be found online at http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/onlineuserights. The Microsoft Azure Agreement, including but not limited to the Privacy terms (“collectively, the “Microsoft Terms”) may be updated by Microsoft from time to time and made available on a successor or related site designated by Microsoft. By signing the Agreement, Client explicitly acknowledges that its use of Microsoft Cloud Resources are subject to the Microsoft Terms.
(d) This Agreement shall include the responsibilities of each party (“mAzure Responsibilities Matrix”) and the requirements under mAzure Technical Policies as both are defined in Section 27, Definitions.
2. FEES AND BILLING.
(a) FEES. Client shall pay all fees for all Services agreed to, and associated with Client’s sub account, and which will be due to Logicworks under this Agreement, including any initial setup fees, managed services fees, hourly fees, deposits, usage-based fees, professional services fees, surcharges, and one-time fees as may be agreed by the Parties as well as any Early Termination Fee, all to be paid in US dollars only.
(b) CREDIT. Client is subject to continuing credit reviews. If Logicworks determines in its commercially reasonable judgment that there is a material adverse change in Client’s creditworthiness, Logicworks may require Client to pay a deposit equal to one month of Managed Services Fees. The deposit will be due within thirty days of the date on which it is invoiced and deposits are in addition to all other fees, which remain due on a current monthly basis.
(c) BILLING TERMS. Billing shall be performed as follows:
(i) Set-up fees are due when Client signs the Agreement and payable within Fifteen days of the date of invoice. Set-up fees are those fees for the initial setup of the Configuration, and shall be described in a Statement of Work agreed by the parties.
(ii) Managed Services fees described in in the Service Order for each component of the Services rendered by Logicworks start to accrue on the specific Service’s Commencement Date, except if Logicworks requests information necessary to deploy the Services, and Client fails to provide it within ten (10) Business Days, in which case the Managed Services Fees will begin to accrue at the end of the Tenth (10th) Business Day. Managed Service Fees will be billed monthly, in advance, and payable upon invoice from Logicworks.
(iii) Microsoft Usage fees are those fees for Microsoft Cloud Resources accessed or made use of via Client’s subaccount(s) (the “Microsoft Usage Fee”). These fees accrue upon Microsoft account transfer or creation and may accrue prior to the Commencement Date, and are based at all times on actual usage by Client. Logicworks Surcharges are those fees associated with the billing of Microsoft Cloud Resources, both are payable in arrears for the previous calendar month. Payment of the Microsoft Usage Fee, and Logicworks Surcharges shall be made by Client immediately upon receipt by Logicworks of an invoice from Microsoft, and initiated by Logicworks via the Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) set up upon execution of the Agreement. Other payment methods may be accepted, but may require additional fees. In the event payment is not received, then Client has Forty-Eight (48) hours upon written notice to remedy; otherwise, Logicworks reserves the right to suspend Microsoft Cloud Resources and, in the event of nonpayment, terminate the agreement.
(iv) Client shall pay each invoice for Managed Services fees within Thirty (30) days from the invoice date without setoff, deduction or delay.
(v) All fees not objected to in writing within thirty (30) days after their invoice date will be deemed to be accurate.
(vi) Microsoft Cloud Usage Fees and Logicworks Surcharges for each Microsoft Cloud Resource will continue to accrue until the Azure Resources are deactivated. Client is solely responsible for deactivating all Azure Resources or for instructing Logicworks in writing to deactivate all Azure Resources, as applicable. Client is responsible for all activities that occur in connection with its Azure Resources, regardless of whether the activities are undertaken by Client, its employees or a third party (including Client’s contractors and agents). Logicworks is not responsible for unauthorized access to or use of a Microsoft Cloud Resource, unless fault of Logicworks.
(vii) Billing Defaults. While any fees are past due, the guarantees in the Service Level Agreement will not apply, Client will not be eligible to receive Service Credits, and Logicworks may suspend the Services as provided. Logicworks may apply all payments to the most recent invoice and charge interest on overdue fees at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by law. Client is liable for Logicworks’ costs of collection, including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses. It is the sole responsibility of Client to provide accurate billing contact information and to provide Logicworks with advance written notice of any changes to its billing contact information below.
(viii) In the event Client fails to pay the Managed Services Fee as indicated herein or should there exist any delinquency therefore, Logicworks reserves the right to automatically charge the Managed Service Fees on the ACH or credit card initially designated by the Client for Logicworks’ use provided by Client. Logicworks reserves the right to terminate the Agreement and/or to discontinue or suspend Service to Client upon ten (10) days’ notice, without liability for actual compensatory or consequential damages to Client for any interruption in Service. Logicworks may discontinue or suspend Service to Client until payment is made. Any Service decommissioning pursuant to this Section 2 may result in a rebuild fee, to be determined by Logicworks in its reasonable discretion.
(ix) The Client may, acting in good faith, dispute any portion of an invoice provided the Client (i) pays the full undisputed portion of invoice by its due date, (ii) provides Logicworks with a written statement and supporting documentation regarding the dispute within thirty (30) days from the date of the relevant invoice, and (iii) negotiates in good faith with Logicworks to resolve the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved within forty-five (45) days from Logicworks’ receipt of the Client’s written statement, either Party may pursue its rights or remedies available either at law or pursuant to this Agreement. No interest shall accrue on any payment that is disputed in good faith by the Client while such dispute is pending. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such dispute is later resolved in favor of Logicworks, such amount shall be subject to the monthly finance charge of one and one half percent (1.50%) from the date originally due until payment in full has been received by Logicworks.
(x) Client shall pay all taxes, duties and levies of any governmental authority, including, but not limited to any excise or VAT tax, exclusive of taxes on Logicworks’ net income, in connection with the Service Fees. If Client claims exemption from any taxes arising from this Agreement, Client shall provide Logicworks with documentation required by the taxing authority to support such exemption.
(xi) Pricing Changes. Logicworks shall have the right, from time to time, to revise on a service-by-service basis, any of the fees set forth in a Service Order, up to Ten Percent (10%) per year per Service. Revised fees shall take effect on the Monthly Remittance Date of the month that follows the date on which the Parties agree to the revised fee schedule. Logicworks shall provide Client with a minimum thirty (30) days’ written notice prior to any pricing increase.
3. EARLY TERMINATION FEE. In the event Client terminates the mAzure Services prior to the end of the Initial Term, (or any Renewal Term) (such term to be known as the “Committed Term”) an early termination fee will be due to Logicworks, and is equal to the average of the then-current Logicworks Surcharges and the Managed Services Fees for each month that Client purchased mAzure Services in the Twelve Month period immediately preceding the date of Early Termination, multiplied by the number of months that would otherwise be remaining in the Committed Term after the Early Termination date.
4. CLIENT OBLIGATIONS
(b) DATA RETENTION. Client acknowledges that unless specifically contracted as an element of Services between Client and Logicworks, Logicworks does not create or maintain an archive or backup of any data, site content or other information maintained or otherwise stored on the Solution (“Client Content”), and Logicworks shall have no liability to Client or any other person for loss, damage or destruction of any Client Content except to the extent caused by the gross negligence of Logicworks.
(c) MICROSOFT POLICY. The Client may only use the Services for lawful purposes. In the event Logicworks reasonably concludes that the Services are being used by Client in contravention of (a) any of the terms and provisions contained in this Agreement, (b) the Microsoft Azure Agreement legal terms and conditions, or such other URL as Microsoft may designate in the future, (c) the Microsoft Acceptable Use Policy which is included in the Online Terms & Conditions, or (d) any other Microsoft terms online (all of the foregoing collectively, the “Policies”), Logicworks has the right to suspend the Services without liability within two (2) business days after giving written notice and a request to cure to Client.
(d) CLIENT INFORMATION. Client represents and warrants that it has fully and accurately disclosed to Logicworks in writing all of Client’s capacity, performance, security, regulatory, backup, high availability, disaster recovery (e.g., RPO and RTO), and scalability needs for the Configuration. Client is responsible for the results of implementing any recommendations made by Logicworks regarding its individual use of the Configuration. Client is responsible for requesting all required upgrades and modifications to the Configuration, including those required to address one or any combination of the following: (A) a spike or change in system resource utilization; (B) processing requirements; (C) storage requirements; (D) software deprecation; and (E) a change in any laws or regulations.
(e) CONTENT. Client is solely responsible for the selection, compatibility, licensing, accuracy, performance, maintenance and support of all information, software, and data, including any hypertext markup language files, scripts, programs, applications, recordings, sound, music, graphics, images, applets or servlets that Client or its agents, representatives, subcontractors, customers or end users create, install, upload or transfer on, from or through the Configuration (“Content”). It is Client’s responsibility to verify that the security and privacy protections offered by Logicworks as Services are adequate and in compliance with all applicable laws governing the type of data included in the Content. Client acknowledges that it is solely responsible for the security, protection and backup of all Content. Services required to copy and return Content are not included within the scope of Logicworks’ normal support Services, but may be arranged as a Professional Service for an hourly fee.
(f) SECURITY. Client shall implement security measures that are commercially reasonable for its use of the Services, including secure access controls, logging, log review, intrusion detection, intrusion management and written policies and procedures that are routinely assessed and updated. Client shall immediately notify Logicworks of any known or suspected breach of security involving the Services. Logicworks shall provide all security as Services under a Service Order and/or Statement of Work.
5. SUSPENSION. Logicworks may suspend the Services in whole or in part, including Client’s administrative access to the Services, without liability if: (a) Client does not cooperate in good faith with a reasonable investigation by Logicworks of a suspected violation under the Agreement; (b) Logicworks is required to suspend Client’s Services by a law enforcement agency, other government agency or court order; (c) there is an attack on the Configuration, a third party gains unauthorized access to the Configuration or a security incident occurs on the Configuration; (d) another event occurs that Logicworks reasonably believes poses a threat to the integrity or security of Logicworks’ network; or (e) any fees owed to Logicworks are past due and have not been remedied. During any suspension, Services will not be available in whole or in part and Client may not have access to Content. In addition, Managed Services Fees will continue to accrue during a suspension and Logicworks may require Client to pay a reinstatement fee of up to ten percent (10%) of the Managed Services Fees before Services are restored. Logicworks shall have no liability for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that Client may incur as a result of any such suspension.
6. PROFESSIONAL SERVICES. Logicworks may provide engineering services to Client (“Professional Services”) as Additional Services. All Professional Services will be provided without ongoing support for the Professional Services, for an hourly fee to be agreed by the Parties. Any estimates provided by Logicworks regarding Professional Services are non-binding estimates until agreed by the parties in writing as a Service Order. Professional Services that are not performed between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Business Day may be subject to an increased hourly fee.
7. MAINTENANCE. “Maintenance” means modifications, upgrades, patching or repairs made by Logicworks. Logicworks may perform Maintenance on at least 5 business days’ notice between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. at the location where the Maintenance is being performed (a “Maintenance Window”), or at any time scheduled by the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Logicworks may perform “Emergency Maintenance”, which is Maintenance that Logicworks determines, in its commercially reasonable discretion, is required to maintain the security or performance of the Microsoft Cloud Resources may be performed at any time, as needed, and without prior notice. All or part of the Services may be unavailable while Maintenance or Emergency Maintenance is performed. Logicworks will use best efforts, with equitable consideration to its other clients, to ensure that Maintenance and Emergency Maintenance is completed in as little time as possible.
8. SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT. This Section 8 sets forth the Service Level Agreement (the “Service Level Agreement” or “SLA”), which includes Client’s sole remedy for Logicworks’ failure to provide the Services. Client is solely responsible for providing accurate and current contact information for the purposes of this SLA. Client will not be eligible for Service Credits for Downtime or any other failure, including any delay in restoring the Services, resulting from Client’s failure to provide current and accurate contact information.
(a) APPLICATION DOWNTIME. Logicworks guarantees that each High Availability mAzure Application that has been successfully configured and tested for failover will be available to perform its required function one hundred percent (100%) of the time (the “mAzure Application Guarantee”). If Logicworks fails to meet the mAzure Application Guarantee, then subject to the exceptions, conditions and notification requirements described below, for the time during which that failure adversely affects the Services (“mAzure Application Downtime”), Client will be entitled to a mAzure Application Credit. The mAzure Application Guarantee does not include the time required to complete manual failover (up to one hour), if manual failover is required, or Client-defined response procedures. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Logicworks is not liable for mAzure Application Downtime: (i) that is caused by the full or partial failure of a non-redundant component or aspect of the Configuration; (ii) the failure of an azure High Availability Service (i.e. Availability Sets) to properly function for any reason other than the fault of the Logicworks’ design, implementation or maintenance.
(b) Azure RESOURCES. Client’s sole financial remedy for a failure of or a deficiency in any Azure Resource will be the Microsoft Credits, if any, that are awarded by Microsoft for the failure and passed through to Client by Logicworks in accordance with the Section below.
(i) MICROSOFT CREDITS. Although Logicworks makes no warranties regarding Microsoft products and services, including the Azure Resources, Microsoft may make service level assurances regarding a particular Azure Resource. If Microsoft issues a credit to Logicworks with respect to an applicable Azure Resource, then, subject to the exceptions, conditions and notification requirements described in this Section Logicworks will apply the credit to Client’s Usage Fees (as defined below) for the month following the month in which it receives the credit from Microsoft (“Microsoft Credits”).
(ii) MICROSOFT CREDIT PROCEDURES. Service credits, if any, for Azure Resources will be issued in accordance with and subject to the requirements of this Section 8(b) (ii) Client acknowledges and agrees that: (A) within ten days after the commencement of a suspected breach by Microsoft of a service level assurance made by Microsoft that applies to an Azure Resource, Client must provide Logicworks with a written credit request that includes all information reasonably necessary for Microsoft to investigate the alleged breach; (B) Logicworks’ sole obligation with respect to service credits for an Azure Resource is to submit a credit request received from Client to Microsoft; (C) Microsoft, in its sole discretion, will determine eligibility for all credits requested and the amount of any credit awarded; (D) Microsoft will issue any Microsoft Credits directly to Logicworks; and (E) Logicworks will apply any Microsoft Credits to Client’s Usage Fees for the month following the month in which they are received by Logicworks, and the excess, if any, is deemed to be waived. In no event will Logicworks be obligated to issue any credit to Client for Usage Fees unless Microsoft determines that Client is eligible for that credit, and in no event will Logicworks be obligated to issue any credit to Client that it exceeds the Microsoft Credit Logicworks actually receives from Microsoft for Client’s Azure Resources.
(iii) Service credits issued pursuant to this Section 8 (b) ((iii) are Client’s sole financial remedy for the failure of or a deficiency in an Azure Resource.
(c) SERVICE CREDIT EXCEPTIONS. Logicworks is not responsible for, and Client is not entitled to Service Credits for, any monitoring or alerting failure or any delay in detecting a failure or providing an alert to the extent that the delay or failure is caused by: (i) Client’s failure to provide Logicworks with accurate and current contact information, (ii) Client-defined response procedures, (iii) third parties over whom Logicworks has no direct contractual relationship or control; or (iv) a force majeure event. In addition, Logicworks is not responsible for, and Client is not entitled to Service Credits for, the failure or delay of any monitor or alert that has not been jointly configured and successfully tested for reliability by both parties prior to its use.
(d) SERVICE CREDIT LIMITATIONS.
(i) ELECTION OF CREDITS. In no event will the same incident result in more than one type of Service Credit. Client may elect which resulting Service Credit will apply when the same incident results in eligibility for more than one type of Service Credit.
(ii) CUMULATIVE AMOUNT. The maximum combined amount of all Service Credits earned in a given calendar month may not exceed the fee for Management and Support Services in the calendar month in which the Service Credits are awarded. Client is not entitled to excess Service Credits that would be available if not for this limitation.
(iii) Client is not entitled to Service Credits for any Downtime caused by: (1) Maintenance, Emergency Maintenance, Microsoft Maintenance or a suspension of the Services; (2) software errors, including flaws, glitches, vulnerabilities and bugs in applications, operating systems, firmware and embedded software; (3) flaws in in Client’s Content or the incompatibility of any operating system, application, other software or vendor-supplied security patches with Client’s Content or Azure Resources; (4) acts or omissions of Microsoft, Client or their respective agents, including Client’s failure to approve necessary Maintenance; (5) the failure of servers or services outside of an Availability Zone on which the mAzure Services are dependent, including, but not limited to, inaccessibility on the Internet that is not caused by Logicworks’ network; (6) blocking of Content deemed to be in violation of an AUP; (7) a denial of service attack, unauthorized access (e.g., hacking) or Malware; (9) Client’s failure to meet the terms and conditions of this Agreement or the Azure Terms; (10) the failure of an Azure Resource that is required for a Configuration monitoring or alerting tool to function properly; (11) a force majeure; (12) Downtime not reported by Client within five Business Days of the day on which the Downtime first began; (13) time required to restore from backup; (14) Client’s use of an Azure Resource with the Configuration that is not included on a Service Order or purchased through the Linked Account; (15) the disabling (either intentionally or unintentionally) by Client of Logicworks’ administrative access to the Configuration (e.g., by changing a password); (16) the modification or deletion by Client of Logicworks’ administrative directories or any software installed by Logicworks for security, monitoring or Maintenance purposes; (17) any modifications made by Client that prevent a device from rebooting properly or any modifications to an Azure Resource that prevent a device from rebooting properly; (18) Client’s use of software that is no longer under vendor support (e.g., end of life); (19) the unavailability of any Azure Resource in whole or in part; or (20) Client becomes ineligible for Service Credits pursuant to any other provision of this Agreement. If client engages in one or any combination of the activities specified in Clauses (15), (16) or (17) of this Section 8(d) (iii) Logicworks may perform Professional Services at Client’s expense without Client’s prior approval to restore the Configuration to its prior state.
(iv) SERVICE CREDIT PROCEDURES. For the purpose of determining service credit availability, Downtime will be measured from the first to occur of the following: (i) Client’s submission of a service request claiming Downtime to NOC through Logicworks’ online support portal; or (ii) the detection of Downtime by Logicworks’ monitoring tools, provided that they have been successfully tested for proper event detection and alerting. Logicworks will determine, in its reasonable discretion, Client’s eligibility for Service Credits and the amount of Service Credits awarded pursuant to this Agreement. To be eligible for Service Credits, Client must send a reasonably detailed, written request for Service Credits to Logicworks within five Business Days after the first day on which the events giving rise to the request first occurred. Logicworks will use reasonable efforts to respond to all Service Credit requests within thirty days of receipt. The calculation of all Service Credits will be based on Logicworks’ records and data. Logicworks will apply Service Credits to the invoice for the month immediately following the month in which a determination of Service Credit amount and eligibility is made.
9. SUPPORT. Logicworks shall provide support to Client for Microsoft Cloud Resources in accordance with the Management and Support options selected by Client on a Service Order. Logicworks will not provide support to Client for any Microsoft Cloud Resource that is not included within the scope of the mAzure Services pursuant to a Service Order. Client may not contact Microsoft directly for any support relating to mAzure Services or any Microsoft Cloud Resource.
10. PRIVACY. Client shall encrypt all Personally Identifiable Information while it is “at rest” (e.g., resides in databases, files, or in storage) on the Configuration and while it is “in motion” (e.g., is in the process of being transmitted manually or by automatic protocol) to, from or through the Configuration using an encryption process that meets the standards recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Client shall identify and interpret all Privacy Laws and industry standard controls (e.g., PCI DSS) (“Industry Controls”) that apply to the transfer, use, storage, backup, availability, integrity, security and destruction of any Content on the Services.
(a) Logicworks’ sole responsibility for Client’s compliance with any Privacy Law or Industry Control is to perform the Services that are expressly described in a Service Order and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as legal advice. Client shall take all actions and implement all measures that are required for it to comply with any Privacy Law or Industry Control to the extent they are not expressly described in a Service Order. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, Client shall make the final decision regarding whether the Services meet or exceed its legal obligations with respect to the transfer, use, storage, backup, availability, integrity, security and destruction of all Content. To the extent Client makes a determination regarding the interpretation of a Privacy Law or Industry Control, or a change in either, and Logicworks complies with that decision, Logicworks shall be relieved of responsibility for any resulting non-compliance with the misinterpreted Privacy Law or Industry Control.
(b) Client hereby consents to Logicworks’ collection, use and disclosure of information and to the transfer of that information by Logicworks to third parties as required for Logicworks to provide the Services to Client.
(c) In the event of a return of Content to Client, Client shall ensure all information that is being returned to Client remains encrypted at all times, including when it is being copied by Logicworks. Client is solely responsible for ensuring that all PII is encrypted prior to and during its shipment. Logicworks will not examine Content prior to shipment to ensure that it has been encrypted. Any shipment of Content by Logicworks is at the sole expense and risk of Client and Logicworks shall have no liability to Client for any data breach, lost data or other harm arising from or relating to the shipment.
11. THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS. Logicworks may offer and resell third-party products and services (each, a “Third-Party Product”) to Client for use with the Services, and if provided, Logicworks will invoice Client, and provide support, for those products in accordance with an associated Service Order. Client’s use of any Third-Party Product may be governed by the terms of a separate license or end user agreement to which Logicworks is not a party. In such case the Third Party Product license(s) may be made available to Client.
(a) LOGICWORKS SOFTWARE. Client shall have a nonexclusive, nontransferable, royalty-free worldwide license, without the right to grant sublicenses, to use object code versions of the Software, if any, made available by Logicworks in connection with the Managed Services (the “Solution Software”).
(b) CLIENT SOFTWARE. Client grants to Logicworks a nonexclusive, nontransferable, royalty-free worldwide license, without the right to grant sublicenses, to use object code versions of any software provided to Logicworks by Client in connection with the Services (the “Client Software”), solely to provide the Services to Client hereunder. If Client uses any software in the Configuration that is not provided by Logicworks, Client represents and warrants that it has obtained all consents and licenses required to use that software with the Services without infringing any ownership or intellectual property rights.
(c) RESTRICTIONS. Client’s use of the Solution Software is subject to the following: Client will not, and will not permit others to, (a) modify, copy, or otherwise reproduce the Solution Software in whole or in part; (b) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for or structure of the Solution Software; (c) distribute, sublicense, assign, share, timeshare, sell, rent, lease, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer the Solution Software or Client’s right to use the Solution Software; or (d) remove any proprietary notices or labels on the Solution Software (e) attempt to discover and/or reuse any Logicworks’ license key or licensing data. All rights not expressly granted to Client are reserved by Logicworks or Logicworks’ licensors.
(d) Logicworks’ use of the Client Software is subject to the following: Logicworks will not, and will not permit others to, (a) modify, copy, or otherwise reproduce the Client Software in whole or in part; (b) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for or structure of the Client Software; (c) distribute, sublicense, assign, share, timeshare, sell, rent, lease, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer the Client Software or Logicworks’ right to use the Client Software; or (d) remove any proprietary notices or labels on the Client Software. All rights not expressly granted to Logicworks are reserved by Client or Client’s licensors.
13. UPGRADES AND ADDITIONAL SERVICES. Subject to any terms and conditions that may apply, Client may upgrade or add new components to the Services by signing a subsequent Service Order.
14. AMENDMENTS, GENERAL. Except as provided in this Section 14, no amendment to this Agreement will be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the parties. On at least Sixty (60) days’ advance notice to Client, Logicworks may amend: (1) the mAzure Responsibility Matrix to modify existing responsibilities or to add new responsibilities and other new Services or (2) the mAzure Technical Policies to address reliability, availability or security issues relating to Server, networking, hardware, software, security, backup and other specifications; and (3) amendment as may be required by Third Party Licensors (collectively, “Amendments”).
15. TERM. The initial term for each Service Order (the “Committed Term”) begins on the Commencement Date and continues for the period stated in the Service Order. At the end of a Committed Term, the Service Order will automatically renew for successive one-year terms (each, a “Renewal Term”). The parties may agree to a new Committed Term for preexisting Services in a renewal Service Order. Either party may elect not to renew the Services by providing the other with a written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the last day of a Committed Term or any Renewal Term. If client elects not to renew, client may continue with services on a month-to-month basis at an increased fee. Logicworks may increase the Managed Services Fee during any Initial Term or any Renewal Term on at least thirty days’ notice. “Term” means the Committed Term(s) and any Renewal Term(s), collectively.
(a) BY LOGICWORKS. Logicworks may terminate this Agreement: (1) without notice if the Services remain suspended (in whole or in part) for non-payment for more than ten days; (2) on forty-eight hours’ notice if Client fails to cooperate in good faith with an investigation by Logicworks of a suspected breach of the Agreement; (3) upon seventy-two hours’ notice if Client’s credit card issuer does not honor any charges processed by Logicworks; (4) upon seventy-two hours’ notice if Client materially breaches any other provision of this Agreement and fails to cure that breach within thirty days of receiving a notice from Logicworks that reasonably identifies the breach; or (5) as required by a law enforcement agency, other government agency or court order. If Logicworks terminates the Agreement under this Section 16(a) during the Term, then upon termination Client shall be liable to Logicworks for an early termination fee (the “Early Termination Fee”) described in Section 3.
(b) BY CLIENT. Upon a termination of this Agreement by Client during the Term, Client shall be liable to Logicworks for an Early Termination Fee unless the agreement is terminated due to Logicworks material breach of the Agreement and failure to cure its breach within thirty days after its receipt from Client of a reasonably detailed notice of the breach.
(c) EFFECT OF TERMINATION; SURVIVAL. Termination by either party for any reason will not relieve Client of its obligation to pay all fees incurred before the termination became effective. Prior to the termination of any mAzure Services, Client shall notify Logicworks in accordance with Section 26 (c) (Notices) of its intent to either: (i) deactivate all Microsoft Cloud Resources immediately upon termination, in which case all copies of the Content will no longer be available and will not be returned to Client; or (ii) have the Linked Account disassociated from Logicworks’ reseller account and transferred to Client, in which case, if Client is not in breach of its payment obligations under the Agreement, Logicworks shall notify Microsoft of the request and implement the transfer with the exception of Logicworks’ proprietary intellectual property (e.g., custom scripts, Servers used to provide support, and management software). Client’s failure to notify Logicworks of its intent under this Section 15(c) will be deemed to be an election by Client to deactivate all Microsoft Cloud Resources upon termination. Under (ii) of this section, Client is responsible for arranging payment method with Microsoft prior to account transfer. If Client has a Business Associate Agreement (HIPAA Addendum) with Logicworks then client is responsible for initiating a BAA directly with Microsoft. Other resold services will be discontinued unless Client makes other arrangements directly with those providers. All terms of this Agreement that should by their nature survive termination will survive, including, Sections 1 (The Agreement; Effective Date), 2 (Fees and Billing), 2(c)(x) (Taxes), 4 (Client Obligations), 4(e) (Content), 4(f) (Security), 16 (Termination), 17 (Warranties; Disclaimers), 18 (Limitation of Liability), 19 (Indemnification), 23 (Governing Law; Legal Disputes), 24 (Intellectual Property), 25 (Confidentiality), 26(d) (Representations; No Changes), 26(e) (Force Majeure), 26(f) (Non-Solicitation), 26(k) (Scope of Agreement; Entire Agreement), 26(l) (Miscellaneous), and 27 (Definitions).
17. WARRANTIES; DISCLAIMERS. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY REQUIRED BY LAW WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF CONTRACTUAL WAIVER, THE PARTIES AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:
(a)LOGICWORKS MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTY WHATSOEVER REGARDING ANY SOFTWARE OR THIRD PARTY PRODUCT OR SERVICE, INCLUDING THAT THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT IS ERROR-FREE OR THAT ERRORS, INCLUDING BUGS AND VULNERABILITIES, WILL BE CORRECTED. SUCH PRODUCTS AND RELATED SUPPORT SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.”
(b) LOGICWORKS WILL PROVIDE THE SERVICES IN A WORKMANLIKE AND PROFESSIONAL MANNER. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE PREVIOUS SENTENCE AND IN THE APPLICABLE SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT, THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ALL HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE, ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS”. LOGICWORKS AND ITS SERVICE SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE. IN NO EVENT WILL LOGICWORKS OR ITS THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE OR SERVICE SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR SOFTWARE ERRORS, INCLUDING BUGS AND VULNERABILITIES IN APPLICATIONS, OPERATING SYSTEMS, FIRMWARE AND EMBEDDED SOFTWARE. CLIENT IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SUITABILITY OF THE SERVICES CHOSEN AND FOR DETERMINING WHETHER THEY MEET ITS LEGAL, SECURITY, CAPACITY, PERFORMANCE, BACKUP, DISASTER RECOVERY AND SCALABILITY NEEDS.
