6. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
6.1. Confidential Information. The term “Confidential Information” means (a) for Pruve, the Pruve Services and any documentation relating thereto; (b) for you, Customer Data; (c) any other information of a party that is disclosed in writing or orally and is designated as confidential or proprietary at the time of disclosure (and, in the case of oral disclosures, summarized in writing within thirty (30) days of the initial disclosure and delivered to the recipient), or that due to the nature of the information the recipient would clearly understand it to be confidential information of the disclosing party; and (d) the specific terms and conditions of these Terms, and any amendment and attachment thereof, between the parties.
6.2. Confidentiality Obligation. Each party (as the receiving party) must: (i) hold in confidence and not disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to third parties except as permitted by these Terms; and (ii) only use the other party’s Confidential Information to fulfill its obligations and exercise its rights under these Terms. Each party may share the other party’s Confidential Information with its, and its affiliates’, employees, agents or contractors having a legitimate need to know (which, for Pruve, includes providing the Pruve Services and sharing with the subcontractors referenced herein) provided that the party remains responsible for any recipient’s compliance with the terms of this Section 6 and that these recipients are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective than these Terms.
6.3. Exclusions. These confidentiality obligations do not apply to (and Confidential Information does not include) information that: (i) is or becomes public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; (ii) was known by the receiving party before it received the Confidential Information; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the receiving party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without using the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. A party may also disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to the extent required by law or court order, provided it gives advance notice (if permitted by law) and cooperates in any effort by the other party to obtain confidential treatment for the information.
6.4. Required Disclosure. If we are required by law to disclose Confidential Information, we will give prompt written notice to you before making the disclosure, unless prohibited from doing so by the legal or administrative process, and assist you to obtain where reasonably available an order protecting the Confidential Information from public disclosure.
6.5. Remedies. The parties acknowledge that disclosing Confidential Information may cause substantial harm for which damages alone may be an insufficient remedy, and so on breach of this Section 6, each party is entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to any other remedies it may have at law.
8. PAYMENT TERMS
8.1. Subscription Plan. The prices, features, and options of the Pruve Services depend on the Subscription Plan selected by you. We do not guarantee that your particular Subscription Plan will be offered indefinitely and we reserve the right to change the prices, features, or options included in a particular Subscription Plan without notice, provided that such changes shall not take effect until your next applicable subscription term.
8.2. Recurring Charges. By signing up for a Subscription Plan, you authorize Pruve to charge you on a recurring basis (e.g., monthly, quarterly, or yearly depending on your Subscription Plan) without an invoice. You expressly authorize Pruve to charge your payment method (such as a credit card) for the applicable subscription charges, any usage or overage charges, and any and all applicable taxes. Such authorization is effective until the end of your subscription term and any applicable renewal term, or until you cancel all of your subscriptions. If you exceed your Subscription Plan’s usage limits, you will be automatically upgraded into the next highest Subscription Plan (if any) and you expressly acknowledge and agree that you will pay for the upgraded Subscription Plan. If your Subscription Plan is based on intermediary provider billing, your intermediary provider will automatically charge your App Store account monthly for the cost of the Subscription Plan and any applicable taxes. All upgrade fees and charges are non-refundable, even if you did not use the full usage allotment of the applicable Subscription Plan. If your credit card on file is closed or the Account information is changed, or if, for any reason, a charge is rejected, you shall immediately update your Account or supply a new payment method, as appropriate. If you are unable to update your credit card account with appropriate information, then we will send an invoice to you detailing the amount due. You must pay the amount due in full within seven (7) days after the date of the invoice.
8.3. Taxes. Pruve’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, and you must pay any applicable sales, use, VAT, GST, excise, withholding, or similar taxes or levies, whether domestic or foreign, other than taxes based on the income of Pruve. You will not deduct any applicable taxes from the payments to Pruve, except as required by law. If such deduction is required by law, you will increase the amount payable as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings, Pruve receives and retains (free from any such liabilities) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made.
8.4. Auto-renewals and Trials. IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS SET TO AUTO-RENEWAL OR IS IN A TRIAL PERIOD AND YOU HAVE PROVIDED A METHOD OF PAYMENT TO PRUVE FOR THE PRUVE SERVICES, PRUVE MAY CHARGE YOU AUTOMATICALLY AT THE END OF THE TRIAL OR FOR THE RENEWAL, UNLESS YOU NOTIFY PRUVE THAT YOU WANT TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION.
8.5. Purchase Orders. You agree that you will pay all amounts owed, including recurring charges, without requiring any purchase orders or reference(s) to purchase order numbers. If a purchase order is required, then you will promptly notify Pruve at least thirty (30) days prior to such requirement and the parties will cooperate in good faith in implementing a billing process that includes references such purchase order numbers. You agree that any purchase orders are for administrative purposes only and that any non-administrative terms (including, but not limited to legal, security, privacy, or finance terms) contained in your purchase order(s) do not apply to your purchase or use of the Pruve Services.
8.6. No Refunds. Subscription fees (and any other fees associated with the services) are non-refundable, except as expressly provided in these Terms. Pruve subscriptions may be cancelled, and such cancellations take effect at the end of your then-current subscription term (for example, if you are on a paid monthly subscription the cancellation will take effect the following month, but if you are on a paid yearly subscription the cancellation will take effect the following year). If you don’t pay for your subscription(s) on time, we reserve the right to suspend your access or remove subscription features. In the event of the foregoing, we shall not be obligated to provide any and/or all of the Pruve Services until such fees are paid in full. Accounts that have been terminated may be reactivated if valid payment information is entered and the card can be successfully processed for all charges accrued on the Account since the failed credit card charge.
8.7. Late Fees and Collection Costs. Late payments may be subject to a service charge equal to the lesser of 1.5 % per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by law. You agree to reimburse Pruve for any costs or expenses incurred by Pruve to collect amounts that remain unpaid after the due date. Amounts due to Pruve may not be withheld of offset by you against amounts due for any reason.
9. TERM AND TERMINATION
9.1. Term. These Terms are effective until all subscription terms for the Pruve Services have expired or are terminated as expressly permitted herein.
9.2. Subscription Term and Renewals. You agree to pay the applicable fees for the entire subscription term. You cannot cancel or terminate a subscription term except as expressly permitted by Section 9.4 (Termination for Cause). If no subscription start date is specified on the applicable order form, the subscription starts when you first obtain access to the applicable Pruve Services. Each subscription term will automatically renew for additional successive periods equal to the initial subscription (e.g. if you have an annual plan then the subscription will renewal for an additional 12 month term, if you have a monthly plan then the subscription will renewal for additional month terms) unless: (i) otherwise stated on the applicable order form; or (ii) either party gives written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days before the end of the then-current subscription term. Pricing for any subscription term renewal, new order form, or order form changes will be at Pruve’s then-applicable rates.
9.3. Suspension of Service. Pruve may suspend your access to the Pruve Services if: (i) your account is overdue; or (ii) you have exceeded your service allocations/service limits. Pruve may also suspend your access to the Pruve Services or remove Customer Data if it determines that: (a) You have breached any portion of these Terms, or (b) suspension is necessary to prevent harm or liability to other customers or third parties, or to preserve the security, stability, availability or integrity of the Pruve Services. Pruve will have no liability for taking action as permitted herein. For the avoidance of doubt, you will remain responsible for payment of fees during any suspension period under this Section. However, unless these Terms have been terminated, Pruve will cooperate with you to promptly restore access to the Pruve Services once we verify that you have resolved the condition requiring suspension.
9.4. Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate these Terms, including any related order form, if the other party: (i) fails to cure any material breach of these Terms (including a failure to pay undisputed fees) within thirty (30) days after written notice detailing the breach; (ii) ceases operation without a successor; or (iii) if permitted by applicable law, seeks protection under any bankruptcy, receivership, trust deed, creditors’ arrangement, composition, or comparable proceeding, or if any of these proceedings are instituted against that party (and not dismissed within sixty (60) days thereafter).
9.5. Effect of Termination. Upon any expiration or termination of these Terms or an order form: (i) your license rights terminate and you must promptly: (a) stop use of the applicable Pruve Services; (b) delete (or, at Pruve’s request, return) any and all copies of any Pruve code, documentation, passwords or access codes, and any other Pruve Confidential Information in your possession, custody, or control; and (ii) your right to access any Customer Data in the applicable Pruve Services will cease and Pruve may delete the Customer Data at any time after 30 days from the date of termination. If Pruve terminates these Terms for cause as provided in Section 9.4 (Termination for Cause), any payments for the remaining portion of the subscription term will become due and must be paid immediately by you. Except where these Terms specifies an exclusive remedy, all remedies under these Terms, including termination or suspension, are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies that may be available to a party.
9.6. Survival. All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, licenses of Customer Data, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity provisions and limitations of liability.
