THIS USER AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) GOVERNS CUSTOMER’S ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SOFTWARE SERVICES (”SaaS”) PROVIDED BY KOIDRA, INC (”Koidra”).
1. Customer Subscription to the SaaS
Subject to the Customer paying the SaaS subscription and Support Service fees in accordance with Section 6 of this Agreement and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and Exhibit A attached hereto, Koidra hereby grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to permit its authorized users (i.e. Customer’s employees, agents and independent contractors) as determined by Customers to use, access and operate the Software via the SaaS platform (as hosted and provided by Koidra) during the Subscription Term solely for the Customer's internal business operations.
2. Ancillary Services

2.2. Koidra API. Koidra shall make an application programming interface or other similar development tools available within the SaaS which establishes an interface with such Platform (“Koidra API”). Unless Customer has entered into Koidra's separate developer agreement and Koidra has provided Customer with an application ID for authentication purposes, Customer shall not use or enable a third party to use any Koidra API: (a) in a manner that causes Customer to exceed the limits of its authorized use of the applicable Platform as set forth in this Agreement or an applicable Order; or (b) to access a Koidra account not otherwise controlled by Customer.
3. Customer Data
3.1. Raw Customer Data. “Raw Customer Data” means all data and information submitted by or on behalf of Customer to Koidra or Koidra’s agents or to which Koidra or Koidra’s agents have access in connection with the provision of the Software via the SaaS.
3.2. Processed Customer Data. “Processed Customer Data” means all data that is derived from Raw Customer Data and accessible via Koidra API.
3.3. Customer Data. “Customer Data” means both the Raw Customer Data and Processed Customer Data.
The Customer shall own and remain the sole and exclusive owner of all rights, title and interest in and to all of the Customer Data and shall have sole responsibility for the legality, reliability, integrity, accuracy and quality of the Customer Data.
In the event of any loss or damage to Customer Data, the Customer's sole and exclusive remedy shall be for Koidra to use reasonable commercial endeavors to restore the lost or damaged Customer Data from the latest back-up of such Customer Data maintained by Koidra.
The customer shall be able to export the Customer Data at any time via Koidra API and remain the sole owner of the exported data.
Koidra shall not be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration, or disclosure of Customer Data caused by any third party (except those third parties subcontracted by Koidra to perform services related to Customer Data maintenance and back-up).
4. Customer’s Obligations
The Customer shall:
- provide Koidra with all necessary cooperation in relation to this Agreement;
- provide Koidra with all necessary access to such information as may be required by Koidra in order for Koidra to (a) render the Support Services, including but not limited to Customer Data, security access information and configuration services; (b) comply with all applicable laws and regulations with respect to its activities under this Agreement. In the event of any delays in the Customer's provision of such assistance to Koidra as agreed by the Parties, Koidra may adjust any agreed timetable or delivery schedule as reasonably necessary;
- provide Koidra with all necessary access to such information as may be required by Koidra in order for Koidra to ensure that the Customer’s authorized users use the Software and the Documentation in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and Customer shall be responsible for any of its authorized user’s breach of this Agreement;

5. Koidra’s Obligations
5.1. Warranties. Koidra represents and warrants that the SaaS will operate during the applicable Term substantially as described in the applicable Documentation. Upon receipt of Customer’s written notice of any alleged failure to comply with this warranty, Koidra will use commercially reasonable efforts to cure or correct the failure. If Koidra has not cured or corrected the failure within thirty (30) days following its receipt of such notice, then Customer may terminate the applicable Order and Koidra shall issue a refund of prepaid fees covering the terminated portion of the Subscription Term.
5.2. Disclaimer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Koidra: (a) does not warrant that the Customer's use of the Software via the SaaS platform will be uninterrupted or error-free; nor that the Software, Documentation and/or the information obtained by the Customer through the use of the Software via the SaaS platform will meet the Customer's requirements; and (b) is not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or any other loss or damage resulting from the transfer of data over communications networks and facilities, including the Internet.
5.3. Connectivity Issues. The Customer acknowledges that the Software, SaaS platform may be subject to limitations, delays and other problems inherent in the use of such communications facilities.
6. Subscription Fees: Invoicing and Payment Methods
6.1. The SaaS subscription and Support Service fees (collectively the “Subscription Fee(s)”) shall be as set forth in the applicable Order Form attached to this Agreement under Exhibit A. The Customer shall pay Koidra the Subscription Fees in accordance with Sections 6.2 and 6.3.
6.2. Koidra will invoice Subscription Fees to the Customer on a monthly basis. Each invoice submitted to Customer will be denominated and paid in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated in the Order Form attached hereto.
6.3. The invoiced Subscription Fees will become due and payable to Koidra fifteen (15) calendar days after the date of the applicable invoice. Any late payment, except for amounts disputed in good faith by Customer, of any amount owing hereunder shall accrue interest at a rate equal to the lesser of (i) 10% per annum, and (ii) the maximum rate permitted by law. In the event that Customer is delinquent in the payment of any amounts Koidra may suspend access to the SaaS platform and other Support Services provided hereunder. The suspension may continue until such overdue amounts are paid in full. A suspension under this Section 6.3 will not constitute a termination of the Agreement nor will it relieve Customer of any of its obligations or liabilities under the Agreement.
Any sales, use, or similar taxes resulting from the provision of the SaaS platform or the performance of the Support Services will be the responsibility of the Customer. With respect to any claim by a governmental authority for a tax for which Customer has a reimbursement obligation under this Agreement, Customer shall participate with Koidra in defense of the claim for such tax.

Koidra may update such security policies and safeguards from time to time, provided that any such update does not materially reduce the overall level of security or commitments as described in the Security Practices document.
At the written request by Customer at any time during the Subscription Term or thereafter, Koidra will erase, destroy or otherwise make unrecoverable all or, if specified by Customer, any part of the Customer Data in Koidra's possession.

Without limiting the foregoing, Customer represents and warrants that Customer shall and will comply with all United States laws and regulations controlling the export of certain technical data, including without limitation all Export Administration Regulations of the United States Department of Commerce. Among other things, these laws and regulations may either prohibit or require the Customer to obtain a license for the export of certain types of technical data to specified countries.

14.1. By Customer: To the extent permitted by applicable law, Customer will defend Koidra and Koidra’s Affiliates providing the Services, and their respective officers, directors, and employees (“Koidra Indemnified Parties”) from and against any claims, demands, proceedings, investigations, or suits brought by a third party arising out of Customer Content or Customer’s use of the Services or Customizations in violation of applicable law (each, a “Claim Against Koidra”). Customer will indemnify Koidra Indemnified Parties for any finally awarded damages or settlement amount approved by Customer in writing to the extent arising from a Claim Against Koidra, and any reasonable attorneys’ fees of Koidra associated with initially responding to a Claim Against Koidra.
14.2. By Koidra. Koidra will defend Customer and its respective officers, directors, and employees (“Customer Indemnified Parties”) from and against any claims, demands, proceedings, investigations, or suits brought by a third party alleging that Customer’s use of the Services or Customizations in accordance with this Agreement infringes any third party intellectual property rights (each, a “Claim Against Customer”). Koidra will indemnify Customer Indemnified Parties for any finally awarded damages or settlement amount approved by Koidra in writing to the extent arising from a Claim Against Customer, and any reasonable attorneys’ fees of Customer associated with initially responding to a Claim Against Customer.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Koidra will have no obligation under this Section 14.2 to the extent any Claim Against Customer arises from: (a) Customer’s use of the Services or Customizations in combination with technology or services not provided by Koidra, if the Services or Customizations or use thereof would not infringe without such combination; (b) Customer Content; (c) Koidra’s compliance with designs, specifications, or instructions provided in writing by Customer if such infringement would not have occurred but for such designs, specifications, or instructions; or (d) use of the Services or Customizations by Customer after notice by Koidra to discontinue use.
14.3. Mitigation. Should Koidra believe that Customer’s use of the Software, the SaaS platform and/or the Documentation, in whole or in part, may be claimed by any third party to be in violation of any third party’s IP rights, or if Customer’s use of the Software, the SaaS platform and/or the Documentation is prohibited by any court of law, Koidra may mitigate the situation at its own option and expense by:
- obtaining the right from the appropriate third party in order for Customer to continue using the Software, the SaaS platform and the Documentation materially as intended in and for the Term of this Agreement;
- modifying or replacing the Software, the SaaS platform and the Documentation to the extent that it becomes non-infringing while still providing the materially equivalent features and functionalities of the delivered Software and SaaS platform; or
- terminating this Agreement, effective immediately upon written notice to Customer and, provided that Customer fully complies with its post-termination obligations, promptly prorate and refund Customer any Subscription Fee amount paid in advance (prepaid) by Customer to Koidra under this Agreement.
