Unless otherwise set forth on the applicable Order Form, Subscriber shall be automatically charged by Denizen, or through Denizen’s third party payment service provider, for the Subscription Fees using Subscriber’s selected payment method prior to each billing period specified on the applicable Order Form. If Subscriber’s automatic recurring payment is declined or unable to be processed for any reason, including, without limitation, if Subscriber has changed their payment preferences with such third party payment processor, such payment shall be deemed past due. Payments made under this Agreement after thirty (30) days past their due date will incur interest at a rate equal to five percent (5%) per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is lower. In addition, Denizen reserves the right to immediately suspend or terminate any services provided hereunder and/or Subscriber’s access to the Software in the event the fees due and payable by Subscriber are more than sixty (60) days late.

7.4 Change in Fees and Payment Terms. Denizen may change its fees and payment terms at its discretion; provided however, that such changes will not take effect for Subscriber until (a) the start of the next Subscription Term (as specified in the applicable Order Form), with respect to any change in fees, and (b) Subscriber’s next billing period with respect to any changes to the payment terms.

Denizen shall be entitled to audit such records upon thirty (30) days prior written notice. Any such audit shall be performed at Denizen’s expense during Subscriber’s normal business hours and in a manner that does not unreasonably interfere with Subscriber’s normal business activities and operations. If an audit reveals of monies by Subscriber, Subscriber shall, within thirty (30) days after conclusion of the audit, pay Denizen the amounts due as a result of the audit. If Subscriber has underpaid or retained monies otherwise due to Denizen that, in the aggregate, equal more than five percent (5%), then Subscriber shall also bear the reasonable cost of the audit.
8. Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any proprietary information received by the other party during, or prior to entering into, this Agreement that a party should know is confidential or proprietary based on the circumstances surrounding the disclosure including, without limitation, the Software and any non-public technical and business information.

The receiving party shall protect the secrecy of and prevent disclosure and unauthorized use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information using the same degree of care that it takes to protect its own confidential information and in no event shall use less than reasonable care. The receiving party may disclose the Confidential Information of the disclosing party if required by judicial or administrative process, provided that the receiving party first provides to the disclosing party prompt notice of such required disclosure to enable the disclosing party to seek a protective order. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement or if earlier, the receiving party will, at the disclosing party’s option, promptly return or destroy (and provide written certification of such destruction) the disclosing party’s Confidential Information.
THE HARDWARE, FIRMWARE, SOFTWARE, DOCUMENTATION, PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, SUPPORT AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY DENIZEN HEREUNDER, ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”.

Denizen may participate and retain its own counsel at its own expense.
11. Limitation of Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT DENIZEN BE LIABLE FOR PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, OR FOR ANY COST OF COVER, LOSS OF PROFIT, USE, SAVINGS OR REVENUE, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO DATA, IMPAIRMENT OF OTHER ASSETS, OR THE CLAIMS OF THIRD PARTIES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS.

During the term of this Agreement, Subscriber hereby agrees that Denizen shall have the right, but not the obligation, to include Subscriber’s name and logo as a Subscriber who uses the Denizen System on the Denizen’s website and in other marketing materials promoting the Denizen System. This Agreement will bind and insure to the benefit of each party’s permitted successors and assigns. Subscriber may not assign this Agreement by merger, operation of law or otherwise, in whole or in part, without Denizen’s prior written consent. Any attempt to assign this Agreement without such consent will be null and void. The relationship between Denizen and Subscriber established by this Agreement is that of independent contractors. No franchise, joint venture or partnership is established by this Agreement. Neither party hereunder is the agent, broker, partner, employee, or legal representative of the other for any purpose. All notices under this Agreement will be deemed given when delivered personally, upon confirmation of transmission if sent by email, or sent by certified or registered U.S. mail or nationally-recognized express courier, return receipt requested, to the address set forth on the initial Order Form or as may otherwise be specified by either party to the other in accordance with this section. Without limiting the foregoing, whenever Subscriber accesses the Software or Denizen website, or sends emails to Denizen, Subscriber is communicating with Denizen electronically. For that reason, Subscriber also consents to receive communications from Denizen electronically, including by e-mail and notices posted on the Denizen website or through the user interface of the Software. Subscriber agrees that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Denizen provides to Subscriber electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The failure of either party to enforce any of the provisions hereof shall not be construed to be a waiver of the right of such party to thereafter enforce any such provision. If any term of this Agreement is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Agreement shall remain in effect, provided that the parties agree to negotiate in good faith substitute enforceable terms. This Agreement (which includes all Order Forms entered into hereunder) is the final and complete expression of the agreement between these parties regarding Subscriber’s use of the Denizen System. This Agreement supersedes, and the terms of this Agreement govern, all previous oral and written communications regarding these matters, all of which are merged into this Agreement, except to the extent Denizen makes any software or other products and services available to Subscriber under separate written terms. Denizen will not be bound by, and specifically objects to, any term, condition, or other provision that is different from or in addition to this Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter this Agreement) that is proffered by Subscriber in any receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence, or any pre-printed or standard terms of any purchase order, confirmation, or similar form, even if signed by the parties after the effectiveness hereof, and such terms shall have no force or effect.
