PROVISION OF SERVICES.
3.1 FireHydrant Platform and Software Access. In order to access the Services, Customer or its Authorized User will create an account on www.firehydrant.io and provide certain information about Customer as prompted by FireHydrant. Certain features of the services will require you to pay a Subscription Fee. The Subscription Fee is based on the tiered category of Service you choose when creating an account or updating your account status. Customer represents and warrants that: (i) all required registration information submitted is true and accurate; and (ii) it will maintain and promptly update such information to keep it true and accurate. If Customer or Authorized User provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or FireHydrant has reasonable grounds to suspect that any information provided is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, FireHydrant has the right to suspend or terminate access to the Services and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof). FireHydrant reserves the right to remove or reclaim any usernames at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to, claims by a third party that a username violates the third party’s rights. Customer and its Authorized Users agree not to create an account or use the Services if they have been previously removed by FireHydrant, or if they have been previously banned from any of the Services.
Authorized Users’ Access to Services. Customer may permit any Authorized Users to access and use the features and functions of the Services as contemplated by this Agreement. User IDs cannot be shared or used by more than one Authorized User at a time. If a Customer wishes to add additional Authorized Users, Customer may make such request through the account. Upon acceptance by FireHydrant of such request, FireHydrant shall make the Service(s) available to the additional Authorized Users. Customer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to, or use of, the Services, and notify FireHydrant promptly of any such unauthorized use known to Customer.

It shall be Customer’s sole responsibility to perform those specific services that are necessary to establish Customer’s or Authorized Users’ use of the Software, Documentation, and Services. This includes but is not limited to: (a) providing employee lists to setup Authorized User accounts, and (b) designating Authorized Users to participate in training.
No Subsequent Registration. If Customer or its Authorized Users’ registration(s) with, or ability to access, the Services is discontinued by FireHydrant due to a violation of any portion of the Agreement, then Customer and its Authorized Users agree that they shall not attempt to re-register with or access the Services through use of a different member name or otherwise, and Customer and its Authorized Users acknowledge that they will not be entitled to receive a refund for fees related to those Services to which access has been terminated. In the event Customer or its Authorized User violates the foregoing, FireHydrant reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately take any or all of the actions set forth herein without any notice or warning to Customer or its Authorized Users.

3.3 Responsibility for Software and Content Hosting. FireHydrant shall, at its own expense, provide for the hosting of the Software which is accessible as part of the Services, provided that nothing herein shall be construed to require FireHydrant to provide for, or bear any responsibility with respect to any telecommunications or computer network hardware required by Customer or any Authorized User to provide access from the Internet to the Services.
3.4 Third-Party Licenses. The Software may include software or other materials that are owned by individuals other than FireHydrant and that are provided to Customer on terms that are in addition to those contained in this Agreement (“Third-Party Licenses”). By using the Software, Customer agrees to be bound by and shall comply with all Third-Party Licenses. Any breach by Customer or any of its Authorized Users of any Third-Party License is also a breach of this Agreement.
3.5 Subcontractors. FireHydrant may use subcontractors or other third parties to perform its obligations under this Agreement, but FireHydrant will remain responsible for all such obligations.

THIRD PARTY SERVICES.
6.1 Generally. In its delivery of the Services, FireHydrant may make available third-party products or services, including integrations (“Third-Party Services”) that Customer may elect to use. Any election by Customer to use such Third-Party Services and any exchange of data with any Third-Party Service is solely between Customer and the applicable third-party provider, and is subject to the Third-Party Services’ applicable terms. FireHydrant does not warrant or provide support for Third-Party Services, whether or not they are designated by FireHydrant as “recommended,” “certified,” or otherwise. Please see a list of our Third-Party Services that are subprocessors here.
6.2 Interoperability. The FireHydrant Platform contains features designed to interoperate with third party software or products. To use such features, Customer may be required to obtain access to such software or products from the applicable providers, and may be required to grant FireHydrant access to Customer’s accounts on such software or products (currently solely for Atlassian Jira software). FireHydrant does not guarantee the continued success or such integration or the availability of such FireHydrant Platform features, and may cease providing them without providing Customer any refund, credit, or other compensation, including if the applicable third party makes such software or products unavailable for integration.
6.4 Third-Party Links. The Services may contain links to third-party websites (“Third-Party Websites”) and applications (“Third-Party Applications”).

Such Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Applications are not under the control of FireHydrant. FireHydrant is not responsible for any Third-Party Websites or Third-Party Applications. FireHydrant provides these Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Applications only as a convenience and does not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representations with respect to Third-Party Websites or Third-Party Applications, or any product or service provided in connection therewith. Customer and its Authorized Users understand and agree that use of all links in Third-Party Websites or Third-Party Applications is at their own risk. When leaving the Services, this Agreement and FireHydrant’s policies no longer govern.
FEES AND EXPENSES; PAYMENTS.
7.1 Fees. Upon registration, Customer or its Authorized Users may have the option to choose a tiered category of service. The fee amount will depend upon the tier selected. Customer or its Authorized User may change the tiered category of service in the registered accounts settings page. In consideration for the access rights granted to Customer and the services performed by FireHydrant under this Agreement, Customer will pay to FireHydrant the fees for the Services elected. In the event that Customer wishes to increase the number of Authorized Users beyond the maximum number of Authorized Users for which fees have been paid, Customer shall be required to pay additional fees associated with the increased number of Authorized Users, prorated for the remainder of the term. You will be responsible for payment of the Subscription Fees at the time you create your account and select your annual package. Except as set forth in the Agreement, all fees for the Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and FireHydrant for the Services until FireHydrant accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail or other appropriate means of communication. FireHydrant shall be entitled to withhold performance and discontinue service until all amounts due are paid in full.
7.2 Taxes. The fees are exclusive of all applicable sales, use, value-added and other taxes, and all applicable duties, tariffs, assessments, export and import fees, or other similar charges, and Customer will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on FireHydrant’s income), fees, duties, and charges and any related penalties and interest, arising from the payment of the fees, the delivery of the Services, or the license of the Software to Customer. Customer will make all payments of fees to FireHydrant free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes; any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to FireHydrant will be Customer’s sole responsibility, and Customer will provide FireHydrant with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as FireHydrant may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid. Customer shall indemnify and defend FireHydrant in connection with any proceedings brought by any taxing authorities in connection with this Agreement.
7.3 Expenses. Customer shall reimburse FireHydrant for all costs, pre-approved by Customer, including FireHydrant’s reasonable out-of-pocket (including travel and living) expenses incurred in performing its obligations hereunder. All costs and expenses incurred by Customer in connection herewith are the sole responsibility of Customer.
7.4 Interest. Any amounts not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of one- and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum legal rate if less. Customer will permit FireHydrant or its representatives to review Customer’s relevant records and inspect Customer’s facilities to ensure compliance with this Agreement.
7.5 Audit. FireHydrant will give Customer at least ten (10) days’ advance notice of any such inspection and will conduct the same during normal business hours in a manner that does not unreasonably interfere with Customer’s normal operations. If any such audit should disclose any underpayment of fees, Customer shall promptly pay FireHydrant such underpaid amount, together with interest thereon at the rate specified in this section. If the amount of such underpayment exceeds five percent (5%) of fees actually paid during the audited period, Customer shall also pay FireHydrant for FireHydrant’s expenses associated with such audit.

THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY OF FIREHYDRANT ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED TO THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO FIREHYDRANT DURING THE SIX (6) MONTHS PRECEDING THE ACT, OMISSION OR OCCURRENCE GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY.

The parties agree that the limitations of liability set forth in this section shall survive and continue in full force and effect despite any failure of consideration or of an exclusive remedy. The parties acknowledge that the prices have been set and the Agreement entered into in reliance upon these limitations of liability and that all such limitations form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties.
10.1 Confidential Information. During the term of this Agreement, each party (the “Disclosing Party”) may provide the other party (the “Receiving Party”) with certain information regarding the Disclosing Party’s business, technology, products, or services or other confidential or proprietary information (collectively, “Confidential Information”). The Disclosing Party will mark all Confidential Information in tangible form as “confidential” or “proprietary” or with a similar legend, and identify all Confidential Information disclosed orally as confidential at the time of disclosure and provide a written summary of such Confidential Information within thirty (30) days after such oral disclosure.

In addition, the Receiving Party will protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that it protects its own proprietary information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care. At the Disclosing Party’s request or upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will return to the Disclosing Party or destroy (or permanently erase in the case of electronic files) all copies of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party does not have a continuing right to use under this Agreement, and the Receiving Party shall provide to the Disclosing Party a written affidavit certifying compliance with this sentence.

In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is necessary for the Receiving Party to enforce its rights under this Agreement or is required by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that the Receiving Party promptly notifies the Disclosing Party in writing of such required disclosure and cooperates with the Disclosing Party if the Disclosing Party seeks an appropriate protective order.
11.1 By Customer. Customer will indemnify and hold harmless, at its own expense, FireHydrant and its affiliates, employees, and agents (collectively, “FireHydrant’s Entities”) from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, and other expenses (including attorneys’ and expert witnesses’ costs and fees) arising out of or relating to Customer’s breach or alleged breach of the subsections titled Warranty and Disclaimers. Customer may not agree to settle any such claim without FireHydrant’s express prior written consent.

All claims arising under this Agreement will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of New York County, New York. The parties submit to the jurisdiction in those courts.
13.3 U.S. Government Restricted Rights. The Software is “commercial computer software,” as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101. Accordingly, if Customer is the U.S. Government or any contractor therefor, Customer will receive only those rights in the FireHydrant Platform, Software, and Documentation as are granted to all other end users under license, in accordance with: (1) 48 C.F.R. §227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. §227.7204, with respect to the Department of Defense and their contractors; or (2) 48 C.F.R. §12.212, with respect to all other U.S. Government licensees and their contractors.
13.4 Nature of Rights. The licenses granted under this Agreement are rights in “intellectual property” within the scope of Section 101 (or its successors) of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Code”). Each party as licensee shall have and may fully exercise all rights available to a licensee under the Code, including under Section 365(n) or its successors.
13.5 Injunctive Relief. If either party breaches Sections 4 (Intellectual Property) or 10 (Confidentiality), the other party may suffer irreparable harm, and monetary damages may be inadequate to compensate the non-breaching party. Accordingly, either party may, in addition to any other remedies available to it at law or in equity, seek injunctive or other equitable relief in response to any such breach.
13.6 Attorneys’ Fees. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees.
13.7 Publicity. FireHydrant may publicly list Customer as a customer of FireHydrant and use Customer’s trademark, trade name, and logo for marketing or promotional purposes and in other communications with existing or potential FireHydrant customers, resellers, or investors.
13.8 No Waiver. Neither party will be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under this Agreement.
13.9 Remedies. Except as provided in the sections titled Limited Warranty and Indemnification, the parties’ rights and remedies under this Agreement are cumulative. Customer acknowledges that the Services, Software, and Documentation contain valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of FireHydrant, that any actual or threatened breach of the sections titled Intellectual Property or Confidentiality or any other breach by Customer of its obligations with respect to Intellectual Property Rights of FireHydrant will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to FireHydrant for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy. In such case, FireHydrant will be entitled to immediate injunctive relief without the requirement of posting bond, including an order that any Software, Documentation, or any portions thereof, that Customer attempts to import into any country or territory be seized, impounded and destroyed by customs officials. If any legal action is brought to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive
13.10 Assignment. Customer may not assign this Agreement or delegate its performance without FireHydrant’s prior written consent, and any attempt to do so is void. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the parties’ permitted successors and assigns.
13.11 Force Majeure. FireHydrant will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform as required by this Agreement as a result of any cause or condition beyond FireHydrant’s reasonable control, so long as FireHydrant uses reasonable efforts to avoid or remove those causes of delay or non-performance.
13.12 Relationship. Customer’s relationship to FireHydrant is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. Customer will not have, and will not represent to any third party that it has, any authority to act on behalf of FireHydrant.
13.13 No Third-Party Beneficiaries. There are no third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
13.14 Notices. All notices under this Agreement must be in writing, and will be considered given: (1) upon delivery, if delivered personally or by internationally-recognized courier service; or (2) three business days after being sent, if delivered by U.S. registered or certified mail (return receipt requested).
13.15 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement or portion of a provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of this Agreement will remain enforceable and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
13.16 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which shall be taken together and deemed to be one instrument.
13.17 Further Assurances. Each party shall execute and deliver any documents or instruments, and take any further actions that are reasonably required, to provide the other party the full benefits and rights described in this Agreement.
