Arena acknowledges and agrees that Customer shall own all title to and ownership of the Customer Data (defined below) and that Arena shall have no rights thereto except the limited right to use the same on an ‘as needed’ basis in connection with Arena’s performance hereunder and as otherwise expressly permitted herein. As used herein, “Customer Data” shall mean any proprietary raw data owned by Customer independent of this Agreement, which Customer may input into the Service. Customer Data expressly excludes any data to the extent processed by, or resulting as an output of, the Service, which shall be considered Arena Data (defined below). If and to the extent necessary for operation of the Service by Customer, Customer hereby grants to Arena a limited, non-exclusive license, during the Term, to use the Customer Data within the Service in order to perform its obligations herein.

Subject only to Section 2.1 above, Arena shall own all rights to any data in and/or derived from the Service, including all data Arena incorporated therein, and all usage data, statistical data or aggregated data collected (collectively, “Arena Data”). Nothing contained in this Agreement or in the parties’ performance or failure to perform hereunder, or in any Services provided by Arena, shall be construed as granting or conferring to Customer, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any such rights in or to any Arena Technology.
3. Fees; Payment Terms. Customer shall pay to Arena in immediately available US dollars, the applicable subscription and other fees in the amounts and timing as specified in any Order Form (the “Fees”). If no payment schedule is specified in the applicable Order Form, then all amounts are due and payable upon Customer’s execution of this Agreement. The Fees, and any fees for any additional services, equipment or subscription extensions which may be purchased hereunder, are exclusive of all applicable taxes, duties or other governmental assessments, which are the responsibility of Customer. Unless otherwise stated in this Agreement, invoices will be stated in United States dollars and shall be due and payable within 30 days following invoice date unless otherwise specified herein or agreed upon in writing by the parties. Late payments shall be subject to a service charge equal to the lesser of, 1.5% per month or the maximum amount allowed by law, with respect to the overdue amount. Arena may not raise the Fees during the Initial Term unless otherwise mutually agreed (or if the Customer elects to subscribe to additional Services or purchase additional equipment or consulting), but does reserve the right to increase the Fees at the end of the Initial Term or during any Renewal Term, by delivering written notice to Customer. During any free trial period, if any, Customer will still be responsible for any purchases and surcharges incurred using your account.
4. Term; Termination. The initial term length shall be as specified the initial Order Form; provided that if no initial term length is specified in any Order Form then the initial term shall be one year (the “Initial Term”). After such initial term, this Agreement shall automatically be renewed for successive one-year renewal terms (each, a “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”), unless either party opts out by giving written notice to the other party at least 30 days prior to the end of the then current term. Either party may terminate this Agreement (a) upon 30 days prior written notice if the other party has materially breached this Agreement and has not cured the same within the 30 day notice period, or (b) immediately upon written notice in the event of the filing of a petition for bankruptcy or reorganization by or against the other party or the dissolution or liquidation of the other party. Upon any termination of this Agreement, (a) Customer shall promptly: (i) discontinue all use of the Service and Documentation; (ii) erase or destroy any electronic copies or partial copies of the Documentation, and return to Arena or destroy any tangible copies or partial copies of the Documentation, in its possession or control; and (iii) certify in writing to Arena that Customer has complied with these requirements; (c) Arena shall disengage Customer’s access to the Service, and (d) both parties shall promptly return to the other or destroy the other party’s Confidential Information. Any payment obligations of Customer, provisions providing for limitations on liability, and those terms which by their nature were intended to survive any termination of this Agreement shall so survive including Section 2 and Sections 5 – 10.
6. Third Party Claim Defense and Indemnification.
6.1 Intellectual Property Infringement. Arena shall (a) indemnify and hold Arena harmless from any costs, expenses, claims, liabilities, judgments, damages or losses, in each case arising out of any third party claim that the Service infringes a United States patent, copyright, trademark, or other US intellectual property right of such third party, and (b) pay directly or indemnify Customer with respect to any judgment or settlement amount awarded in connection with such claim. The foregoing obligations are contingent upon Customer providing Arena with: (i) prompt notice of such claim (and in any event notice in sufficient time for Arena to respond without prejudice); (ii) the exclusive right to control, direct, and perform the investigation, defense, or settlement of such claim; and (iii) such assistance as may be reasonably requested by Arena at Arena’s expense. If Customer’s use of the Service is, or in Arena’s opinion is likely to be, enjoined, or if required by settlement, or if commercially advisable, Arena may: (x) substitute for the infringing element of the Service functionally similar software; (y) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Service; or, (z) terminate this Agreement and refund to Customer that portion of any prepaid Service Fee associated with any unused portion of the Term. The foregoing defense and indemnification obligations of Arena shall not apply to the extent the alleged infringement arises out of the alteration or modification of the Services, use or combination of the Service with other non-Arena products, services, hardware, software or processes, or any unauthorized use of the Service. In addition, Arena’s obligations and liabilities under this Section shall be governed by the limitations on liability set forth in Section 7 below and shall be capped at and included within any calculation of direct damages under that Section. THIS SECTION 6 SETS FORTH ARENA’S SOLE LIABILITY AND CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT BY THE SERVICE, OR ANY CONSULTING SERVICES.
6.2 Customer Indemnification Obligations. Customer shall indemnify and hold Arena harmless from any costs, expenses, claims, liabilities, judgments, damages or losses, in each case arising out of (i) any breach by Customer of this Agreement, including any representation, warranty or obligation herein; (ii) the Customer Data or any other content, data or other materials input into the Service, or otherwise provided, by or on behalf of Customer; (iii) any actual or alleged non-compliance by Customer with applicable laws, rules and regulations; (iv) Customer’s actual or alleged violation of third party privacy rights, including without limitation any breach of the scope of the license granted herein; or (v) Customer’s violation of Arena’s intellectual property rights, including without limitation any violation of Sections 2 or 9.1.
7. Limitation of Damages. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS HEREIN, AND EXCEPT FOR BREACHES OF SECTIONS 2, 8 OR 9 HEREOF, (A) IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY, BASED ON ANY THEORY OF LAW, EQUITY, TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, OR COSTS OF COVER, IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE; AND (B) EACH PARTY’S TOTAL LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OF ANY KIND, WITH ALL CLAIMS, DAMAGES AND LIABILITIES AGGREGATED, AND BASED ON ANY THEORY OF LAW, EQUITY, TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE SERVICE AND LICENSE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER DURING THE TERM (IN ADDITION TO ANY FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER). ANY CLAIM BY CUSTOMER SHALL BE BROUGHT WITHIN 12 MONTHS FOLLOWING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE SAME. ALTHOUGH INFORMATION THAT USERS SUBMIT MAY BE PASSWORD PROTECTED, ARENA DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION TRANSMITTED TO OR FROM THE SERVICE AND CUSTOMER AGREES TO ASSUME THE SECURITY RISK FOR ANY INFORMATION, DATA OR CONTENT IT PROVIDES THROUGH THE SERVICE. Customer is responsible for all use of the Services AND by all end users, including, without limitation, as applicable, any employees, agents and customers. Customer is responsible for communicating the terms and limitations in this Agreement to any and all such end users, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY LIMITATIONS AND ANY LIMITS ON ARENA’S LIABILITY. Customer may use the Services for informational purposes only, as an aid, but only as one information source among many, and not as the sole basis for making any decisions; Customer must use proper due diligence and use its own business judgment when making any decisions based on any information, analytics or reports derived from the Services.
8.1. Confidential Information. Each party acknowledges that by reason of the relationship created between the parties by this Agreement, it may have access to certain non-public information of substantial value concerning the other party’s business, operations, strategic plans, customers, suppliers, technology, competition and employees (“Confidential Information”), which value would be impaired if such Confidential Information were disclosed to third parties or used other than for purposes expressly authorized hereunder. Without limiting the foregoing, but for avoidance of doubt, the terms of this Agreement, and any performance, warranty and like information relating to the Service (by whomsoever generated or communicated) will be considered Confidential Information of Arena. Accordingly, each party agrees (a) to maintain all Confidential Information received from the other, in whatever form disclosed, in strict confidence, (b) not to disclose or otherwise make available such Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written consent of the disclosing party, and (c) not to use the Confidential Information of the other party except as required in the performance of its obligations or the exercise of its rights hereunder. The foregoing obligations shall not apply to Confidential Information of a disclosing party that, as can be reasonably demonstrated with admissible evidence by the receiving party: (i) is or becomes a matter of public knowledge though no action or omission of the receiving party; (ii) was rightfully in the receiving party’s possession without restrictions on use or disclosure prior to its disclosure by the disclosing party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the receiving party without an obligation of confidentiality from a third party who has no obligation of confidentiality, direct or indirect, to the disclosing party; (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without reference to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information; or (v) is required to be disclosed by a court or other authorized tribunal, and then only to the extent of such requirement and only after given prompt notice of the requirement to the disclosing party.
8.2. Return of Confidential Information. Upon the written request of the disclosing party (subject to each party’s rights, during the Term, to retain the other’s Confidential Information solely for purposes of performing its obligations and exercising its rights hereunder) or upon any termination of this Agreement, the receiving party shall (a) immediately return to the disclosing party or destroy all copies and partial copies of the Confidential Information, whether maintained in tangible, electronic or other form (including permanently erasing any portions thereof from computers and systems) and (b) provide the disclosing party with written certification of its compliance with the terms of this Section.
8.3. Remedies. Each party acknowledges that any breach of any of its obligations with respect to the other party’s Confidential Information may cause or threaten irreparable harm to such party. Accordingly, each party agrees that in such event, the aggrieved party shall be entitled to seek equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction without the necessity of posting bond and in addition to such other remedies as may be available to the aggrieved party under law or in equity.
9. License Restrictions.

Customer agrees not to circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Service, or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or enforce limitations on use of the Service, or the content therein. To the extent the Service allows uploading or posting of content or data, you will ensure that any content or data posted by or on behalf of Customer is not inappropriate, illegal, or in violation of any third party rights.

Evaluation use of the Service is intended solely for Customer to determine the compatibility of the Service with Customer’s business needs, and only to be used in a non-production test environment. Arena has no obligation to provide support, maintenance, upgrades, modifications or new releases during the evaluation period, and any Service provided for evaluation or beta purposes is provided “as is” and without any warranties, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.
