Customer represents and warrants that Customer will use the Services only in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Customer shall be liable for all acts and omissions using its account.
3.3 Services if (i) Customer fails to make a payment due within 10 business days after AnyRoad has provided Customer with notice of such failure; or (ii) Customer violates Section 2, 3, or 9 of this Agreement. Any suspension by AnyRoad of the Services under the preceding sentence shall not relieve Customer of its payment obligations under this Agreement.
3.4 Certain “free” or “open source” based software (the “FOSS Software”) may be provided by AnyRoad hereunder but is not considered part of the Software hereunder. A list of the FOSS Software will be provided to Customer upon Customer’s written request.
4.1 AnyRoad will retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in and to the Services and Software (including all derivatives or improvements thereof). All suggestions, enhancements requests, feedback, recommendations, or other input provided by Customer or any other party relating to the Services or Software shall be owned by AnyRoad, and Customer hereby makes all assignments necessary to accomplish the foregoing ownership. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by AnyRoad.
4.2 Customer will retain ownership of any data, information, or material originated by Customer that Customer submits or provides in the course of using the Services (“Customer Data”). AnyRoad has no ownership rights in or to Customer Data. Customer shall be solely responsible for the accuracy, quality, content, and legality of Customer Data, the means by which Customer Data is acquired, and the transfer of Customer Data outside of the Services. Except to the extent Customer makes any Customer Data accessible to other users or the public through the Services, Customer Data shall be deemed to be Customer Confidential Information pursuant to Section 9 below. Customer represents and warrants that it has all rights necessary to upload the Customer Data to the Services and to otherwise have such Customer Data used or shared, as applicable, by AnyRoad as part of the Services.
4.3 AnyRoad will retain ownership of any questions or other information provided to an attendee by AnyRoad in relation to the Services. Customer will retain ownership of any comments, ideas, feedback or other information provided by an attendee to AnyRoad in relation to the Offerings (“Attendee Feedback”), provided that Customer will not disclose any such Attendee Feedback in a way that can be attributed to a specific attendee without such attendee’s prior written consent. Customer hereby grants AnyRoad a nontransferable, perpetual, nonexclusive, worldwide license to use Attendee Feedback, Customer Data and any other information, insight, statistics or metrics relating to the usage of the Services (collectively, the “Usage Data”) in order to develop, provide and operate its Services and other offerings, and disclose such information (excluding Customer’s Confidential Information, as defined below) solely on an aggregated and anonymized basis in a manner that does not identify Customer, Customer’s Confidential Information or any individual attendee.
5. Billing and Payment
5.1 Customer shall pay all fees to AnyRoad set forth in an Order (“AnyRoad Fees”) and unless otherwise specified in such Order, all AnyRoad Fees shall be due within 30 days of date of invoice. All AnyRoad Fees are non-cancelable and non-refundable, except as expressly specified in Section 7.2. Unless otherwise stated in the Order, all AnyRoad Fees are exclusive of taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and Customer shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties (excluding taxes based on AnyRoad’s income), even if such amounts are not listed on an Order. Unless otherwise provided in an Order, all AnyRoad Fees and Attendee Payments are in U.S. Dollars and Customer and AnyRoad shall pay all AnyRoad Fees and Attendee Payments, respectively, in U.S. Dollars or in such other currency as agreed to in writing by the parties.
5.2 AnyRoad collects a service fee for the Offerings directly from the attendee of such Offering (“Usage Fee”) and will remit the remaining amounts paid by the attendee to Customer set forth in an Order (“Attendee Payment”). Attendee Payments shall be remitted by AnyRoad to Customer on a monthly basis (for any Offering completed during such month). Customer may elect whether to pass along the Usage Fee to the attendee or deduct the Usage Fee from Customer’s listed Offering price, as specified in an Order. After an Offering is completed, to the extent a refund is requested by an attendee and approved by Customer, the full amount paid by the attendee shall be refunded to such attendee and such amount shall be deducted from the aggregate Attendee Payments to be made in the following month. Further, it is agreed that the Attendee Payment will be paid to Customer and Customer shall be responsible for payments to any third parties involved in hosting or providing the Offering.
5.3 All amounts invoiced hereunder are due and payable within 30 days of the invoice date unless otherwise specified in the Order. Unpaid invoices that are not the subject of a written good faith dispute are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all reasonable expenses of collection.
5.4 If Customer issues a purchase order, then it shall be for the full amount set forth in the applicable Order Form and AnyRoad hereby rejects any additional or conflicting terms appearing in a purchase order or any other ordering materials submitted by Customer, and conditions any engagement with Customer solely based on the terms and conditions of the Agreement as offered by AnyRoad. If requested, AnyRoad may reference the purchase order number on its invoices, provided, however, that Customer acknowledges that it is Customer’s responsibility to provide the corresponding purchase order information (including a purchase order number) to AnyRoad upon the signing of any Order Form. Customer agrees that a failure to provide the corresponding purchase order shall not relieve Customer of its obligations to provide payment to AnyRoad.
6. Term and Termination
6.1 This Agreement shall commence as of the date set forth in the first Order, and, unless earlier terminated as set forth below, shall remain in effect through the end of the Subscription Term in any current Order. Unless otherwise stated in the Order, the Subscription Term will automatically renew for additional successive periods of time equal to the length of the original Subscription Term, unless either party provides written notice of non-renewal at least 30 days prior to the end of the then-current term. All sections of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination will survive, including without limitation, accrued rights to payment, use restrictions and indemnity obligations, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
6.2 In the event of a material breach by either party, the non-breaching party shall have the right to terminate the applicable Order for cause if such breach has not been cured within 30 days of written notice from the non-breaching party specifying the breach in detail. If AnyRoad terminates an Order for Customer’s material breach, all fees set forth on such Order are immediately due and payable.
6.3 Upon any termination or expiration of an Order, Customer’s right to access and use the Services covered by that Order shall terminate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at Customer’s request if received within 30 days of termination of the Order, AnyRoad will permit Customer to access the Services solely to the extent necessary for Customer to retrieve a file of Customer Data and Attendee Feedback then in AnyRoad’s possession. Customer acknowledges and agrees that AnyRoad has no obligation to retain Customer Data or Attendee Feedback and that AnyRoad will have the right to irretrievably delete and destroy Customer Data and Attendee Feedback after 30 days following the termination of this Agreement.

8.2 AnyRoad provides a medium in which Customers and their attendees can transact. However, AnyRoad could not function if it were held responsible for the actions or inactions of its attendees, Customers, and/or third parties both on and off the Services. Therefore, as an inducement to AnyRoad permitting Customer to access and use the Services, in providing the Offerings, Customer hereby agrees to release AnyRoad, and its affiliates and subsidiaries from all damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, or otherwise), losses, liabilities, costs, and expenses arising out of or in any way connected with disputes between Customer and third parties in connection with any Offerings. In addition, Customer waives any applicable law or statute, which says, in substance:
“A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE RELEASED PARTY.”
