License and Services Agreement
THIS LICENSE AND SERVICES AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is made and entered into today (“Effective Date”), by and between Celéri Health, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Celéri”), and you (“Customer”). For purposes of this Agreement, Celéri and Customer shall be referred to individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties.”
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged by the parties, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:
1.1 Subject to Customer’s continued compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including payment of the fees set forth in Section 2, Celéri will provide Customer and Customer’s directors, officers, representatives, agents or employees (collectively, the “Designated Users”) with access and use the Celéri software applications (“Services”). The Services are licensed, not sold. Your license confers no title or ownership in the Services and should not be construed as a sale of any rights in the Services. Upon the termination of this Agreement, any rights and licenses granted under this Agreement will automatically terminate, and neither Customer nor its Designated Users may continue to use the Services.
1.2 Customer may access and use the Services and related peripherals solely for its own internal business purposes, in compliance with applicable law, and shall not: (a) copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, display, perform, rent, sell, resell, assign, lease, sublicense or otherwise transfer the Services or use it in any manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement, (b) permit any third party to use or primarily benefit from the Services except as permitted herein, (c) create derivative works based on the Services; (d) modify, create derivative works of, reverse engineer, translate, disassemble, or decompile the Services, or cause or permit others to do so; (e) access the Services in order to (i) build a competitive product or service, or (ii) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Services; or (f) remove any applicable title, trademark, copyright and/or restricted rights notices or labels from the Services. Customer acknowledges and agrees Celéri may revise features and functions of the Services at any time, including, without limitation, by removing such features and functions.
After any applicable free trial period, if any, Customer agrees to pay the fees set forth in the applicable order on a monthly basis in advance of the month to which the fees apply. Coupon codes may from time to time reduce the effective rate as determined by Celéri. All payments shall be denominated in United States currency via: (a) a valid credit card acceptable to Celéri; a valid debit card acceptable to Celéri; or, (b) any other payment option acceptable to Celéri evidenced in writing. Customer payments will be applied first to undisputed past-due amounts. Past-due balances will be subject to a late fee in the amount of the lesser of 1.5% per month, or the maximum lawful rate permitted by law. Any taxes arising out of this Agreement other than those on Celéri’s net income shall be the responsibility of Customer. Celéri will be relieved of all obligations to provide Services during any period in which any payments are delinquent. Celéri may terminate this Agreement immediately with cause for Customer’s failure to pay any fees.
3.1 Customer and Celéri, each, acknowledge that in providing the Services under this Agreement, either Party (the “Receiving Party”) may have access to information of the other Party (the “Disclosing Party”) and that is of confidential or proprietary nature. For purposes of this Agreement, all non-public information (whether orally disclosed, provided electronically, or provided in tangible form, before or after the date of this Agreement) provided by the Disclosing Party (or on behalf of the Disclosing Party by one of its officers, directors, employees, representatives or advisors) to the Receiving Party regarding the Disclosing Party’s business dealings, clients, intellectual property, operations, affairs, services or products, whether marked with “confidential”, “proprietary” or similar marking or not so marked shall be referred to herein as “Confidential Information”. Confidential Information shall also include, but not be limited to: corporate information; strategies, tactics, and methods; employment and compensation information; financial reports or other information; operational information (including, but not limited to, information related to intellectual property, trade secrets, methods, know-how, and other proprietary information); information received by the Disclosing Party in confidence from customers, strategic partners or others and all notes, analyses, compilations, studies or other documents prepared by Receiving Party which contain such information. So long as this Agreement is in effect, and for five (5) years after the Termination thereof, Customer and Celéri, each, agrees to receive and hold all of the Confidential Information in strict confidence, and not to disclose such Confidential Information to any person, firm, corporation, association or other entity for any reason or purpose whatsoever, or make use of any such information for his own purposes or for the benefit of any person, firm, corporation or other entity (except the Disclosing Party) under any circumstances. Receiving Party acknowledges that any use or disclosure of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information other than as specifically provided for in this Agreement may result in irreparable injury and damage to the Disclosing Party. Accordingly, the Receiving Party hereby agrees that, in the event of use or disclosure by the Receiving Party other than as specifically provided for in this Agreement, the Disclosing Party may seek equitable relief as granted by any appropriate judicial body.
3.2 The provisions of this Section 3 shall not apply to any Confidential Information that: (a) is now or subsequently becomes generally available to the public through no action, directly or indirectly, of the Receiving Party; (b) the Receiving Party can demonstrate has been independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to Confidential Information; (c) the Receiving Party can demonstrate was available to the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis prior to its production by the Disclosing Party; (d) is disclosed by the Receiving Party with the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party; or (e) becomes known to the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third party source with no confidentiality obligations to the Disclosing Party.
3.3 The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party In the event that the Receiving Party is required by judicial process or other legal order to disclose any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; provided, that the Receiving Party must provide the Disclosing Party with prompt written notice of such request and reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party in any effort to obtain an appropriate protective order or other relief. The Receiving Party will not oppose any action by the Disclosing Party to obtain an appropriate protective order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded to the Confidential Information.
