During the term of this Agreement and subject to all terms and conditions set forth herein, Company will make the Service available to Customer and hereby grants to Customer a nonexclusive right and license: to use the Software, download, install components (if any); to access and use the Service and Results through a web-based interface; and to permit identified Users to access and use the Service under its Account. The Licensed Materials may be used only in unmodified form and solely for Customer’s internal business purposes. Customer’s access and use of the Licensed Materials shall comply with all other conditions set forth herein (such as, for example, restrictions regarding the number or identity of authorized Users, data formats, size limits, time limits, use limitations or prohibited uses). From time to time, Customer may (at its discretion) provide Feedback to Company.
Account. Company may provide Customer with access credentials (and/or a mechanism that permits Customer to specify access credentials) as needed to identify, authorize and designate roles for its employees or other individuals who will be registered users (collectively, Users), who will have rights (as appropriate to their roles) to establish, administer, configure, manage and use the Service through a Customer-specific account (Account). Customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all Account information (including access credentials) and for all User activities under its Account. Customer agrees to keep all Account information up-to-date and to notify Company immediately of any unauthorized use of its Account.
Support. Using commercially reasonable efforts, Company may provide Customer with initial training and other assistance to access, configure, verify and initiate operation of the Service; provide Customer with technical support for the Service during normal business hours (which may include professional services and technical support); and endeavour to analyse and resolve material errors.

(Applicable for Non Cloud / Customer Hosted Deployment) Customer is responsible for acquiring all (a) servers, mobile devices, storage, software, databases, network and communications systems and services needed to access and use the Service and (b) backup, recovery, network security and maintenance services for its systems. Without limiting the foregoing, Customer is responsible for backing-up or otherwise protecting all information stored on its systems prior to accessing or using the Service or any Software or downloading Results.
Professional Services. From time to time, Customer may request and Company may agree to provide certain implementation, integration, data analysis, development, training or other professional services related to the Service (Work). Company agrees to undertake and use commercially reasonable efforts to complete the Work as described in the corresponding Statement of Work.

Scope. The term Confidential Information means all trade secrets, know-how, inventions, software and other financial, business or technical information disclosed by or for a party in relation to this Agreement.

Confidentiality. Except for the specific rights granted by this Agreement, and except for disclosures that are necessary to comply with any legal, regulatory, law enforcement or similar requirement or investigation, the receiving party shall not access, reproduce, use or disclose any of the other’s Confidential Information without its written consent, and shall use reasonable care to protect the other’s Confidential Information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure (including by ensuring that its personnel who access any Confidential Information have a need to know for the permitted purpose and are bound by written obligations that are at least as protective as this Agreement). Each party shall be responsible for any breach of confidentiality by its personnel (including Users, in the case of Customer). Promptly after any termination of this Agreement (or at the disclosing party’s request at any other time), the receiving party shall return all of the other’s tangible Confidential Information, permanently erase all Confidential Information from any storage media and destroy all information, records and materials developed therefrom. Each party may disclose only the general nature, but not the specific terms, of this Agreement without the prior consent of the other party; provided, either party may provide a copy of this Agreement or otherwise disclose its terms in connection with any legal or regulatory requirement, audit, financing transaction or due diligence inquiry.
Security. During the term of this Agreement, each party agrees to maintain its systems secure against hacking, breach of firewalls, viruses and other unauthorized access and usage by third parties using technologies, tools and procedures that are consistent with good industry standards.
