Salsify is the provider of a hosted platform and related software tools and services that can be used to collaboratively integrate, manage, enhance, clean, share, and publish product content and information ("Salsify Platform"). Customer desires a subscription to access and use the Salsify Platform in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein.
2.1 Access and Use. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Salsify hereby grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 10.3 below) and non-sublicensable, right to access and use the Salsify Platform solely for Customer's own business purposes and solely for the duration of the applicable Subscription Term.
2.3 Authorized Users. For purposes of this Agreement, "Authorized Users" means Customer's employees, contractors, and agents who are authorized by Customer to access and use the Salsify Platform using a user identifier and password provided by Customer.
2.4 Services. From time to time, Customer may request Salsify to provide certain professional services. If Salsify agrees to perform any such professional services for Customer, then such professional services (the "Services") will be described in a mutually agreed upon statement of work that references this Agreement ("Statement of Work"), and the fees and other terms for such Services will be as agreed to by the Parties in the applicable Statement of Work.
2.5 Reservation of Rights; Acknowledgement of Ownership. The Salsify Platform contains proprietary information, materials and content including, but not limited to, copyrighted material, trademarks, service marks, and other proprietary information; which may include (without limitation), text, software, photographs, video, graphics, interactive elements, images, and sounds that are owned by Salsify and/or its licensors (collectively "Salsify Materials") and are protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws including, but not limited to, copyright and trade secrets and Customer agrees that such Salsify Materials will not be used in any way other than in compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Subject only to the rights expressly granted to Customer under this Agreement and except for any Customer Content (as defined below), all rights, title and interest in and to the Salsify Platform, Salsify Materials, and all modifications, enhancements and improvements thereof will remain with and belong exclusively to Salsify.
2.6 Salsify Materials. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Salsify and its licensors reserve the right to enhance, change, suspend, remove or disable access to any Salsify Materials, particular functions or other materials comprising a part of the Salsify Platform at any time. By way of example, Salsify’s engineering team provides numerous updates to the Salsify Platform in an effort to improve performance and to introduce new or enhanced features and functionality. In the event, however, that such changes will reasonably be deemed to materially and adversely affect the overall functionality of the Salsify Platform then Customer, as its sole remedy may elect to terminate its subscription to the Salsify Platform upon written notice to Salsify (in which case Customer shall be entitled to receive a refund of any prepaid, unused fees paid in advance for the balance of the unexpired Subscription Term). Salsify may also set limits on the use of or access to certain features, functions or portions of the Salsify Platform upon notice to Customer provided that such limits shall not be effective until any renewal of Customer’s subscription to the Salsify Platform.
2.7 Customer Content. Customer will own all content, text, graphics, photos, audio, video material, and materials, in both its altered or unaltered form, provided by Customer to Salsify in connection with its use of the Salsify Platform under this Agreement ("Customer Content"). Customer acknowledges that one primary function of the Salsify Platform is to allow Customer to transmit and distribute its Customer Content to third parties through the Salsify Platform. Accordingly, during the Subscription Term, Customer acknowledges that Salsify may use, store copy, modify, and transmit the Customer Content solely as necessary to provide Salsify Platform and its related services to Customer. For the sake of clarity, Salsify will not publish, share, or otherwise make public Customer Content except as directed by Customer through its use of the Salsify Platform. All Customer Content may be exported by Customer at any time during the Subscription Term and for a period of thirty (30) days thereafter.
2.8 Feedback. Salsify appreciates the feedback that it receives from its customers with respect to the Salsify Platform. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer will gain no right, title, or interest in or to the Salsify Platform or any other products or services (other than as licensed pursuant to this Agreement) by virtue of any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback or other information about the Salsify Platform ("Feedback"), provided by Customer to Salsify, and Salsify will be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of this Feedback for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgement or compensation to Customer. Customer agrees that it does not now have, will not have, nor will it ever claim, any proprietary rights (including intellectual property rights and trade secret rights) in or to the Feedback, the Salsify Platform and/or the other services and products offered. If Customer is ever held or deemed to hold any right, title or interest in or to the Salsify Platform (including any changes, modifications or corrections thereto), other services and products, and/or the Feedback, then Customer hereby irrevocably assigns to Salsify all such right, title and interest.
2.10 Third Party Service Providers. One primary feature of the Salsify Platform is that the Salsify Platform may use and/or provide access to a third party's (e.g. Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Overstock.com, etc.) website properties and services, for example to enable Customer to publish Customer Content to a third party site or service. Because Salsify has no control over such sites and services, the parties acknowledge and agree that: (i) the manner in which third party services use, store and disclose Customer Content is governed solely by the policies of such third parties; (ii) Salsify is not responsible for the accuracy, availability or reliability of any information, content, goods, data, opinions, advice, or statements made available in connection with third party sites or services; (iii) Salsify shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any third party site or service that may be enabled via the Salsify Platform; and (iv) Salsify enables these features merely as a convenience and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, events, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or services. The Parties further acknowledge and agree that Salsify shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss, including bodily harm or death, caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, events, activities, goods or services available on or through any such third party sites or services. To the extent that the Salsify Platform connects to other third party applications, Customer agrees to comply with all terms and conditions of use for those services that are applicable to Customer's use thereof provided such terms and conditions are made available to Customer in advance.
2.11 Digital Millennium Copyright Act. (a) Salsify will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to Salsify's Copyright Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject line: "DMCA Takedown Request"). Customer may also contact Salsify by mail at the address above. (b) To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information: (i) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest; (ii) a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that Customer claims has been infringed; (iii) a description of where the material that Customer claims is infringing is located on the Salsify Platform, with enough detail that Salsify may find it on the Salsify Platform; (iv) Customer's address, telephone number, and email address; (v) a statement by Customer that Customer has a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement by Customer, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in such notice is accurate and that Customer is the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner‘s behalf. (c) If Customer is the subject of a complaint and Customer believes that Customer Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that Customer has the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to law, to post and use the Customer Content, Customer may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent: (i) Customer's physical or electronic signature; (ii) identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (iii) a statement that Customer has a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and (iv) Customer's name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that Customer consents to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within Massachusetts and a statement that Customer will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. (d) If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Salsify will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content shall be replaced, or access to it restored, in ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice.
3.1 Service Level Agreement. Salsify shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that that Salsify Platform is generally available 99.9% of the time in a calendar month during the Subscription Term (i.e. will serve content from Salsify’s hosting facility 99.9% of the time).
General availability will be calculated per calendar month, as follows:
[((total - nonexcluded - excluded) / total - excluded) * 100] ≥ 99.9%
In the event that Salsify fails to maintain or experiences interruption in access to the Salsify Platform below 99.9% general availability in any given month, Salsify's sole liability and Customer's sole and exclusive remedy will be for Salsify to provide a credit based on the availability level above (or, in the case of a non-renewal, a refund based on the availability level below), but Customer must notify Salsify of such breach within 7 days of the end of the month in question by emailing email@example.com. To be eligible, the credit request must include: (i) the words "SLA Credit Request" in the subject line; and (ii) the dates and times of each interruption in service that Customer is claiming.
General availability to Credit of Fees Paid (prorated to month):
3.2 Backups. Salsify maintains backups of its entire system according to industry standard practices, including but not limited to full nightly backups. In addition, Salsify also encourages Customer to use Salsify APIs to maintain a full backup of Customer Content on a regular basis.
4.1 Fees; Payment Terms. In exchange for Customer's access and use of the Salsify Platform provided by Salsify as set forth herein, Customer will pay Salsify the fees set forth in the Order Form. The fees will remain fixed during the then current Subscription Term unless Customer's usage of the Salsify Platform exceeds the limits of the existing tier, at which point the Customer's fees will be adjusted up to the prices applicable at the next tier, as set forth in the Order Form. If Customer is to be adjusted up, Salsify will provide written notice to Customer and allow seven (7) days after written notice to modify usage below limits of existing tier. Salsify reserves the right to modify pricing prior to the commencement of any Renewal Term (as defined below), though does not have the right to modify pricing effective during an existing Subscription Term. Failure to pay any fees under this Agreement will result in an interruption of service after written notice and failure to pay and reasonable opportunity to cure.
4.2 Payment Terms. Except as otherwise expressly set forth on an Order Form, all fees and payments under this Agreement will be billed in advance on a monthly basis and are non-refundable, and all fees for Services performed under a Statement of Work will be due and payable as set forth in the applicable Statement of Work. All payments will be made in U.S. dollars by credit card, bank transfer, or check, without any withholding, deduction, offset, setoff or other charge. Customer is responsible for providing information to complete payment, such as valid and updated credit card information or bank account information.
4.3 Net of Taxes. All amounts payable by Customer to Salsify hereunder are exclusive of any sales, use and other taxes or duties, however designated (collectively "Taxes"). Customer will be solely responsible for payment of any Taxes, except for those taxes based on the income of Salsify. Customer will not withhold any Taxes from any amounts due Salsify.
5.1 As used herein, "Confidential Information" means any and all information or data, regardless of whether it is in tangible form, disclosed by either Party (the "Disclosing Party") that reasonably should be known to be confidential or proprietary, or that the Disclosing Party has either marked as confidential or proprietary, or has identified in writing as confidential or proprietary within thirty (30) days of disclosure to the other Party (the "Receiving Party"), or that the Receiving Party would reasonably expect to be treated as confidential information, provided, however, that personally identifiable information of or about Customer or its Authorized Users will be considered the Confidential Information of Customer and all Salsify Materials will be considered Confidential Information of Salsify, whether or not such information or materials are marked as confidential or proprietary. Information and data will not be deemed "Confidential Information" if such information: (i) is known to the Receiving Party prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the Disclosing Party; (ii) becomes known (independently of disclosure by the Disclosing Party) to the Receiving Party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the Disclosing Party; (iii) becomes publicly known or otherwise ceases to be secret or confidential, except through a breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party; or (iv) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to the Confidential Information.
5.2 The Receiving Party agrees that it will not (i) use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in any way, for its own account or the account of any third party, except for the exercise of its rights and performance of its obligations under this Agreement, or (ii) disclose any such Confidential Information to any person or entity, other than furnishing such Confidential Information to (a) its Authorized Users, employees and independent contractors who have a need to know such information in connection with the exercise of Receiving Party's rights or performance of its obligations under this Agreement and (b) professional advisers (e.g., lawyers and accountants); provided, however, that any and all such Authorized Users, employees, and independent contractors and professional advisers are bound by confidentiality obligations or, in the case of professional advisers, ethical duties, to treat, hold and maintain such Confidential Information in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Section 5. The Receiving Party agrees that it will not allow any unauthorized person access to Disclosing Party's Confidential Information, and that Receiving Party will take all action reasonably necessary to protect the confidentiality of such Confidential Information, including implementing and enforcing procedures to minimize the possibility of unauthorized use or copying of such Confidential Information. In the event that the Receiving Party is required by law to make any disclosure of any of Disclosing Party's Confidential Information, by subpoena, judicial or administrative order or otherwise, the Receiving Party shall first give written notice of such requirement to the Disclosing Party, and shall permit the Disclosing Party to intervene in any relevant proceedings to protect its interests in the Confidential Information, and provide full cooperation and assistance to the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party's sole expense, in seeking to obtain such protection. The provisions of this Section 5 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for a period of three (3) years.
6.1 Representations and Warranties. Salsify represents and warrants to Customer that Salsify will provide the Salsify Platform in a professional and workmanlike manner during the applicable Subscription Term. Each Party represents and warrants to the other Party that such Party has the required rights, power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to grant all rights, authority and licenses granted hereunder, and that such Party will comply with all federal, state, local and foreign laws, rules and regulations applicable to its performance of obligations or exercise of rights under this Agreement.

7.1 Indemnification by Salsify. In the event of a claim against Customer for the infringement or misappropriation of a third party copyright, trade secret or trademark by reason of the use of the Salsify Platform (other than with respect to the Customer Content) by Customer as permitted hereunder, Salsify will, at its expense, defend, indemnify and otherwise hold Customer harmless from such claim, and pay damages actually awarded or paid in connection therewith, including the reasonable fees and expenses of the attorneys engaged by Salsify for such defense, provided that (i) Customer promptly notifies Salsify in writing of such claim, (ii) Salsify is given the sole and exclusive authority to defend and/or settle any such claim (provided that Customer may participate in the defense or settlement of such claims at its own expense and with its own counsel), and (iii) Customer reasonably cooperates with Salsify, at Salsify's sole expense, in connection therewith. If the use of the Salsify Platform by Customer has become, or in Salsify's opinion is likely to become, the subject of any claim of infringement, Salsify may at its option and expense (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Salsify Platform as set forth hereunder; (b) replace or modify the infringing component of the Salsify Platform to make it non-infringing so long as the Salsify Platform has comparable functionality; or (c) if options (a) or (b) are not reasonably practicable, terminate this Agreement and provide Customer with a refund of any prepaid, unused fees paid to Salsify by Customer for the Salsify Platform (if any) for any unexpired portion of the Subscription Term. Salsify will have no liability or obligation under this Section 7.1 with respect to any claim to the extent such claim is caused in whole or in part by (x) Salsify's use of any Customer Content, compliance with designs, data, instructions or specifications provided by Customer; or (y) the combination, operation or use of the Salsify Platform with other applications, software, content, products, data or services not provided by Salsify where the Salsify Platform would not by itself be infringing.

Customer will, at its expense, defend, indemnify and otherwise hold Salsify and its affiliates harmless from and against any and all claims directly or indirectly brought against Salsify or any of its affiliates by any third party arising from (i) any use of the Salsify Platform by Customer, Authorized Users, or any other person or entity authorized by Customer, which use is in violation of the terms of this Agreement, or (ii) claims for the infringement or misappropriation of a third party copyright, trade secret or trademark by reason of the use of the Customer Content as authorized under this Agreement. Customer will pay damages actually awarded or paid in connection therewith, including the reasonable fees and expenses of the attorneys engaged by Customer for such defense; provided that: (a) Salsify promptly notifies Customer in writing of such claim, (b) Customer is given the sole and exclusive authority to defend and/or settle any such claim (provided that Salsify may participate in the defense or settlement of such claims at its own expense and with its own counsel) and (c) Salsify reasonably cooperates with Customer, at Customer's sole expense, in connection therewith.
