Customer acknowledges that i-PRO may be limited in the provision of the Cloud Services by the Cloud Platform vendor’s terms and conditions. i-PRO reserves the right to change the Services to reflect any change to the Cloud Platform vendor’s terms and conditions or as mandated by applicable law. In the event of any change, i-PRO will give Customer reasonable prior written notice setting out the scope and contents of the change and the impact of the same. If in the reasonable opinion of Customer such changes will materially impair the functionality of the Cloud Services, the Parties shall discuss in good faith a resolution to such impairment, and if no such resolution can be achieved within ninety (90) days of i-PRO’s notice of the change, the Customer will be entitled to terminate the Cloud Services on thirty (30) days written notice to i-PRO. Such notice to terminate must be served on i-PRO within thirty (30) days the Parties’ determination that no resolution can be achieved.

4.7. Restrictions. Except as explicitly allowed in these Master Terms, Customer shall not (nor enable or permit others to) as a condition and material term of its use of the Cloud Services, without i-PRO’s prior written permission: (a) assign, transfer, distribute, export or re-export, sell, rent, lease, lend, pledge, sublicense or otherwise exploit or encumber the Services, or otherwise make available any portion thereof, or use or permit use on behalf of, any third party for any purpose (whether in such third party’s business operations or otherwise), including but not limited to use in the operation of a service bureau, sourcing, subscription or time-sharing arrangement, or in a rental, software as a service or outsourcing context; (b) publish any results of benchmark tests conducted with regard to any portion of the Cloud Services or attempt to use the Cloud Services for purposes of competitive analysis or to make a competing product; or (c) otherwise act in any way that would negatively impact any rights of i-PRO in the Services, or that would deprive i-PRO, in whole or in part, of any fees to which it is entitled, and Customer agrees to comply with all reasonable requests by i-PRO to protect the respective rights of i-PRO in the Cloud Services.
4.8. Controlled Data.

5. i-PRO CloUDE powered by Genetec
5.1. The Cloud Products may include a subscription to i-PRO CloUDE powered by Genetec (“CloUDE”), a service that is designed to store digital evidence captured from i-PRO Products.

Contact i-PRO support or an authorized reseller for more information.
6. FEES AND PAYMENT
6.1. All fees shall be paid thirty (30) days from the date of i-PRO’s invoice or such alternative payment date that may be set out on the Order Form without deduction or offset. Subscription fees, fees for Cloud Services, Support Services and other recurring fees, are payable in advance of the applicable period to which they relate, the first being due on the Order Form start date unless otherwise stated in such Order Form.
6.2. Subscription fees, fees for Support Services and other recurring fees are subject to annual increases, in accordance with the provisions set forth in the Order Form.
6.3. The fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, GST, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes applicable at the time and associated with its purchases hereunder. If i-PRO has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this clause, Customer will reimburse i-PRO for that amount unless Customer provides i-PRO with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. i-PRO will calculate applicable Taxes based on the Customer shipment or delivery address specified in the relevant Order Form. Customer will be responsible for self-assessing and paying any additional Taxes arising from its use of the i-PRO Offering at a different address and will provide i-PRO with proof of payment of such additional Taxes on request. Customer will promptly notify i-PRO of any changes to any of its addresses specified in an Order Form. Should any payment under this Agreement be subject to withholding tax by any government, Customer will remain liable to i-PRO for the full amounts invoiced hereunder, without reduction, and provide proof of payment of such withholding tax, upon i-PRO’S request. For clarity, i-PRO is solely responsible for taxes assessable against i-PRO based on its income (other than such withholding taxes), property and employees.
6.4. For overdue fees, a late payment fee will accrue at the lesser of one (1%) percent of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. If any fees owing are more than thirty (30) days overdue, i-PRO may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, suspend its performance under the Agreement until such amounts are paid in full, provided i-PRO has given Customer at least 10 days’ prior notice that its account is overdue in accordance with the Notices section below. Performance will be re-started upon payment of all overdue fees. However, i-PRO will not exercise its rights under this Section 6.4 if Customer disputes the applicable fees reasonably and in good faith and it is cooperating diligently with i-PRO to resolve the dispute.
7.1. The Parties acknowledge and agree that one Party (and/or any of its Affiliates) (“Receiving Party”) may have access to Confidential Information of the other Party (and/or any of its Affiliates) (“Disclosing Party”). Receiving Party agrees (a) to hold all Confidential Information disclosed hereunder to it in confidence and to use at least the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential information (but no less than reasonable care); (b) to use such Confidential Information solely for the purposes of the Agreement; and (c) not to disclose any such Confidential Information to anyone except its employees, Affiliates, and contractors who need to know the Confidential Information in connection with the Agreement and who are subject to obligations of confidentiality no less stringent than those herein. Receiving Party shall be liable for the acts and omissions of any employees, Affiliates, and contractors as it is for its own acts and omissions. Confidential Information does not include information which Receiving Party can show: (i) is, or becomes, available within the public domain without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (ii) is already in the possession of Receiving Party at the time of receiving the same without obligation of confidence; (iii) is independently developed or acquired by Receiving Party without any breach of the Agreement; or (iv) is received by Receiving Party from a third party without restriction on its disclosure or use. The Parties’ obligations relating to Confidential Information survive the termination of the Agreement.
7.2. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled to do so by law, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure.
7.3. Damages may not be an adequate remedy for breach of the obligations of confidentiality. Receiving Party therefore acknowledges that, in addition to any other remedies that may be available at law, Disclosing Party may seek such injunctive relief, specific performance or other remedy as may be deemed proper by a court or administrative authority of competent jurisdiction.
8. CUSTOMER DATA
8.1. i-PRO will maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security and confidentiality of Customer Data. Those safeguards will include, but will not be limited to, measures for preventing access, use, modification or disclosure of Customer Data by i-PRO except to the limited extent necessary (a) to provide the i-PRO Solution including Support Services and to prevent or address technical problems, (b) as compelled by law in accordance with Section 7 (Confidentiality) or (c) as expressly permitted in writing by Customer. Customer agrees to notify i-PRO before using the i-PRO Solutions in a manner that may involve the processing by i-PRO of any personal data subject to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“GDPR”), including without limitation before disclosing any such personal data to i-PRO or storing any such personal data to any i-PRO Solution so that i-PRO and Customer may enter into a mutually agreeable Data Protection Addendum (“DPA”), and in which case Customer shall be the controller and i-PRO shall be the processor. The DPA shall be incorporated into the Agreement by reference to the extent applicable to the provision of the i-PRO Solutions. The Parties’ liability arising under or for breach of the DPA will be governed by these Master Terms.
8.2. i-PRO may track and analyze the usage of the i-PRO Solutions for purposes of assisting customers, security, and improving the i-PRO Solutions and the user experience, provided that Confidential Information of Customer remains subject to Section 7. For example, i-PRO may use aggregated and anonymized information to help customers derive more value from the i-PRO Solutions, to understand and analyze trends, or to track which features are most used. i-PRO may share anonymous usage data with its service providers for the purpose of helping in such tracking, analysis and improvements. Additionally, i-PRO may share such anonymous usage data on an aggregate basis in the normal course of operating their business; for example, i-PRO may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of their Services.
9. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
9.1. Customer is the owner of the Customer Data. I-PRO acquires no right, title or interest from Customer or its licensors under these Master Terms to any Customer Data. Customer grants i-PRO, its Affiliates and, if applicable, its hosting providers a worldwide, limited-term license to host, copy, transmit and display Customer Data as necessary for i-PRO to provide the i-PRO Solutions in accordance with these Master Terms.
9.2. Except for the limited licenses and/or use rights specified in these Master Terms and the applicable Order Form, Customer does not acquire any rights in or to the i-PRO Solutions, i-PRO Materials or i-PRO Confidential Information (collectively, “i-PRO IP”). i-PRO and its licensors reserve all rights not expressly granted to Customer hereunder. All right, title and interest, including without limitation all patents, trademarks, copyright, moral rights, database rights, trade secrets, service marks and applications for any of the foregoing, and any other intellectual property right of whatever nature anywhere in the world, in and to the i-PRO IP, shall remain or become upon creation, as applicable, the exclusive property of i-PRO or its licensors, worldwide and in perpetuity, and Customer hereby, without charge or royalty, conveys, assigns, and transfers all right, title and interest that it may have in the i-PRO IP with full and unrestricted right to i-PRO or its licensors to change, duplicate, exploit, transfer, assign or otherwise dispose of in any way, such works and all rights to enforce such rights and interests. In respect of i-PRO Materials, Customer will not remove or alter any proprietary legends or notices and to maintain any marking of ownership.
9.3. Subject to any applicable confidentiality provisions, nothing herein restricts either Party’s right to use and employ its general skills, know-how, techniques, concepts and expertise within its general knowledge and in the regular course of its business. Customer grant to i-PRO and its Affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into the i-PRO Solutions any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by Customer or users.
10.1. Mutual Warranties. Each Party represents and warrants (a) it is a duly organized, validly existing and in good standing as a corporation or other entity under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or other organization; (b) it has, and throughout the Term and any additional periods during which it receives, does or is required to perform the Software, will retain, the full right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement and perform its obligations hereunder; (c) the execution of this Agreement by its representative whose signature is set forth at the end of this Agreement has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or organizational action of such party; and (d) when executed and delivered by both parties, this Agreement will constitute the legal, valid, and binding obligation of such party, enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms.
10.2. Services Warranty. i-PRO warrants that Support Services and Cloud Services shall be provided in a professional and workmanlike manner.
10.3. Software Warranty. i-PRO warrants that the Software will perform substantially as described in the Software Documentation (“Software Performance Warranty”) for a period of six (6) months from the original license start date specified in the Order Form (“Software Warranty Period”). i-PRO does not warrant that the Software will be constantly available, uninterrupted or error free. i-PRO makes no performance or any other warranty with respect to Third-Party Software which is covered by whatever warranty, if any, each such third party may separately provide to the Customer. Warranty remedies outside of the Software Warranty Period will be provided as part of Support Services, Customer must therefore have a valid agreement for the provision of Support Services in regards of the warranted Software after the expiration of the Warranty Period. Subject to the Support Terms, if i-PRO has breached the Software Performance Warranty, Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy is for i-PRO to use reasonable efforts consistent with industry standards to cure the defect or otherwise to redeliver the Software so that it substantially complies with the Documentation.
10.4. Disclaimer. Only such limited warranties, conditions or remedies that have been expressly agreed in these Master Terms shall be granted and available to Customer and are in lieu of all other warranties, conditions or remedies, whether express or implied, written or oral, arising by statute, operation of law, course of dealing, usage or trade or otherwise, including without limitation the implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular or intended purpose, ability to achieve a particular result, or accuracy or completeness of responses or results.
11.1. i-PRO Indemnification. i-PRO shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (“Losses“) incurred by Customer resulting from any third-party claim, suit, action, or proceeding (“Third-Party Claim“) that the Cloud Products or Software, or any use of the Cloud Products or Software in accordance with this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights, provided that Customer promptly notifies i-PRO in writing of the claim, cooperates with i-PRO, and allows i-PRO sole authority to control the defense and settlement of such claim. If such a claim is made or appears possible, Customer agrees to permit i-PRO, at i-PRO’s sole discretion, to (A) modify or replace the Cloud Products or Software, or component or part thereof, to make it non-infringing, or (B) obtain the right for Customer to continue using the same on a non-infringing basis. If i-PRO determines that neither alternative is reasonably available, i-PRO may terminate the Agreement, in its entirety or with respect to the affected component or part, effective immediately on written notice to Customer. This Section 11.1 will not apply to the extent that the alleged infringement arises from: (i) use of the Cloud Products or Software in combination with data, software, hardware, equipment, or technology not provided by i-PRO or authorized by i-PRO in writing; (ii) modifications to the Cloud Products or Software not made by i-PRO; (iii) Customer Data; or (iv) Third-Party Software, i-PRO CloUDE or the Cloud Platform. Notwithstanding the foregoing, i-PRO hereby passes through for the benefit of Customer any and all warranties and indemnity rights it receives from the provider of such third-party products and applications listed in (iv) concerning infringement of applicable intellectual property rights.
11.2. Customer Indemnification. Customer shall indemnify, hold harmless, and defend i-PRO from and against any Losses resulting from any Third-Party Claim that the Customer Data, or any use of the Customer Data in accordance with the Agreement, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights or otherwise violates applicable law, or arising out of the Customer’s breach of the Acceptable Use Policy.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
12.1. Neither Party excludes or limits its liability for (a) fraud, willful misconduct or intentional or willful misappropriation of intellectual property rights; (b) death or personal injury caused by the negligence or willful default of that Party; (c) breaches of confidentiality or data security; (d) indemnification obligations; and (e) any other liability which cannot be excluded by law (the “Exclusions”).
12.2.

13.1. These Master Terms shall continue in force until all Order Forms hereunder have expired or have been terminated.
13.2. Either Party may terminate an Order Form where the termination cause relates to such Order Form: (a) if the other Party commits or permits a material breach of the Agreement and the other Party fails to cure such breach, if the breach is capable of cure, within thirty (30) days of receipt of written notice from the terminating Party giving details of such breach or (b) if the other Party suffers an Insolvency Event. In addition, i-PRO may terminate an Order Form if Customer becomes subject to sanctions under applicable EU/US/UN or other applicable export control and economic sanctions laws and regulations or becomes so by being directly or indirectly controlled by such a sanctioned entity or person. Termination or expiration of an Order Form shall not affect any other Order Form. However, where the cause of termination relates to all Order Forms, a single notice of termination of all Order Forms may be provided to the other Party.
13.3. Effect of Termination. (a) Termination does not release either Party from any liability which, at the time of such termination, had already accrued to the other Party or which is attributable to a period prior to such termination, nor preclude either Party from pursuing any rights or remedies it may have pursuant to the terms of the Agreement with respect to any breach of the Agreement. (b) Except in the event of i-PRO’s termination for default, licenses granted to Customer hereunder shall survive termination of these Master Terms or the applicable Order Form for the remainder of the applicable license term, subject to Customer’s continued compliance with the terms hereof.

(d) Termination or expiration of under any Order Form may require Customer to engage i-PRO to conduct certain de-installation, modifications or other activities to the i-PRO Offering or parts thereof affected by such termination. i-PRO reserve the right to charge for such services. In addition, i-PRO may provide migration or other transition services, subject to separate terms and charges.
