The Initial term of this Agreement is as stated on the corresponding Order Form starting from the Effective Date. As used in this Agreement, “Order Form” means the paper or electronic form (including any exhibits, schedules, supplements, or addenda thereto) under which Customer ordered the applicable Services to be provided pursuant to this Agreement. Following interviewstream’s acceptance of an Order Form, interviewstream will make the applicable Services available to Customer during the applicable term as set forth in such Order Form, in which case any additional terms and conditions contained in such Order Form are hereby incorporated into the Agreement by reference and are legally binding. This Agreement shall automatically renew for additional renewal terms equal to the Initial Term with an increase by five percent (5%) above the applicable pricing from the prior term unless either Party shall give notice of cancellation, which must be provided no less than sixty (60) days and no more than one hundred-twenty days prior to each anniversary of the Effective Date. If Customer terminates this Agreement or elects to reduce the number of Customer’s authorized end users (“Users”) of the Licensed Material, then, in addition to amounts due for use of the Licensed Material and Support Services, including any associated documentation (collectively, the “Services”) actually rendered prior to the termination of this Agreement or reduction of Users, there shall be immediately due and payable by Customer an amount equal to the 50% of the fees that would have been paid the remainder of the term but for the termination or reduction of Users, as the case may be.
Payments are due in advance annually, and fees due shall be set forth in an Order Form. Customer must have a credit card on file to qualify for any other pre-negotiated payment terms. Services will be terminated and data will be destroyed if payments are not received within the terms, after serving a thirty-day notice via email or fax. Unless otherwise provided in the Order Form (a) all payment obligations are non-cancelable and (b) payments are non-refundable. Any late payment shall be subject to any costs of collection (including reasonable legal fees) and shall bear interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month (prorated for partial periods) or at the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less. If any undisputed fees are fifteen (15) days or more past the due date for payment of such fees, interviewstream reserves the right to suspend Customer’s access to and use of all Services until such non-payment is remedied by Customer. If Customer wishes to dispute any fees, Customer must notify us in writing of Customer’s good faith reason(s) for such dispute within fifteen (15) days of receipt of the applicable invoice on which such fees appear. In the event of a dispute, Customer must still pay any amount that is not disputed. The license, service fees, and other amounts required to be paid hereunder do not include any amount for taxes or levy (including interest and penalties). Customer shall reimburse interviewstream and hold interviewstream harmless for all sales, use, VAT, excise, property or other taxes or levies which interviewstream is required to collect or remit to applicable tax authorities which arise out of this Agreement or the Order Form. This provision does not apply to interviewstream’s income or franchise taxes, or any taxes for which Customer is exempt, provided Customer has furnished interviewstream with a valid tax exemption certificate.

Indemnification by Customer. Customer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless interviewstream and its officers, directors, agents, representatives and employees against any claim, demand, suit, cause of action or proceeding, including all costs, expenses and damages (including reasonable attorneys fees), made or brought against interviewstream or the aforementioned indemnitees, arising out of or relating to: (a) any claim by a third party alleging that Customer Data (or other materials or software provided by Customer), or Customer use of the Services of this Agreement, infringes, misappropriates, or violates the intellectual property rights of a third party or violates applicable law; (b) breach by Customer of Customer’s representations and warranties under this Agreement; and (c) any act of gross negligence or willful misconduct by Customer (each a “Claim Against Interviewstream”); provided that interviewstream (i) promptly gives Customer written notice of the Claim Against Interviewstream (provided that any failure to provide such prompt written notice will only relieve Customer of its obligations to the extent its ability to defend such claim is materially prejudiced by such failure); (ii) gives Customer sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Interviewstream (provided that Customer may not consent to entry of any judgment or admission of any liability of interviewstream without the prior written approval of interviewstream); and (iii) provides to Customer all reasonable assistance, at Customer’s sole expense.

Nondisclosure. During this the term of this Agreement and for a period of two (2) years thereafter, each Party agrees to maintain all Confidential Information in confidence to the same extent that it protects its own similar Confidential Information, but in no event using less than reasonable care, and to use such Confidential Information only as permitted under this Agreement. Each Party agrees to only disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information to its employees: (a) with a need to know to further permitted uses of such information; and (b) who are informed of the nondisclosure/ non-use obligations imposed by this Section 5. Both Parties shall take steps each determines appropriate to implement and enforce such non-disclosure/non-use obligations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information that it is legally compelled to disclose; provided, however, that prior to any such compelled disclosure, the receiving Party will (i) assert the privileged and confidential nature of the Confidential Information against the third party seeking disclosure and (ii) cooperate fully with the disclosing Party in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Confidential Information. In the event that such protection against disclosure is not obtained, the receiving Party will be entitled to disclose the Confidential Information, but only as, and to the extent, necessary to legally comply with such compelled disclosure.
Terms of Agreement Confidential. Each of the Parties agrees not to disclose to any third party the terms of this Agreement, including pricing, without the prior written consent of the other Party hereto, except to advisors, investors and others on a need-to-know basis under circumstances that reasonably ensure the confidentiality thereof, or to the extent required by law.
Injunctive Relief. In the event of an actual or threatened breach of the above confidentiality provisions, the non-breaching Party may have no adequate remedy at law and will be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable relief, in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity.
Ownership of Confidential Information. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to convey any right, title or ownership interests to or in (a) the Services or other Confidential Information of interviewstream to Customer, or (b) any patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret embodied therein.

Some Licensed Material may contain or be provided with components licensed from another party under a license commonly referred to as an open source, free software, copyleft or community source code license (collectively, “Open Source Software”). Customer hereby acknowledges that the terms of the third-party licenses governing such Open Source Software, not the terms and conditions of this Agreement, shall govern Customer’s use of such Open Source Software.

Integration with Non-interviewstream.com Services. The Licensed Material may contain features designed to interoperate with Third Party Software (e.g., Google, Facebook or Twitter applications). To use such features, Customer may be required to obtain access to such Third-Party Software from their providers.

All Customer Data is owned by Customer and is to be strictly held as confidential. Interviewstream will delete and destroy all copies of non-aggregated or non-anonymized Customer Data once the Agreement is terminated with or without default.
