All mutually-executed Order Forms are incorporated herein by reference.

Client acknowledges that (i) the Subscription Service is provided in accordance with and is subject to the provisions set forth in this Agreement, the applicable Sales Order as well as the additional terms and conditions set forth on Exhibit B hereto and (ii) the Professional Services are provided in accordance with and are subject to the provisions set forth in this Agreement and the applicable Sales Order. Any conflict between the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and any Sales Order shall be resolved in favor of the Sales Order.
- Changes to Sales Order. Either Party may request a change to a Sales Order, and for such purpose shall submit to the other Party a written notice (“Change Request”) setting forth the requested change and the reason for such request. Within five (5) business days (or such other period of time as agreed by the Parties) after the receipt of such Change Request, the Parties shall discuss the necessity, desirability and/or acceptability of the Change Request. When and if both Parties have agreed in writing upon the changes, and any resulting change in the estimated (or fixed) fees for the Services, the Parties shall complete and execute a new or revised Sales Order. In the event that Client elects to upgrade to a new version of the Subscription Service or elects to license additional functionality and features offered by TOSS, the Parties will enter into a new or amended Sales Order specifying such new version and/or such additional functionality and the additional fees to be paid by Client.
- FEES; PAYMENT TERMS
- Fees. Client agrees to pay TOSS for Services provided and expenses incurred on the basis and at the rates specified in each Sales Order. Unless otherwise set forth on the Sales Order, payment shall be due upon Client’s execution of the Sales Order and shall be made in US Dollars. The initial payment shall be made by either check, credit card or ACH. Recurring subscription monthly and annual payments shall be made by credit card or ACH. Client shall also pay all pre-approved reasonable travel and out-of-pocket expenses incurred by TOSS in connection with any Services rendered. Any support or remediation services provided by TOSS in connection with the Subscription Services which resulted from the Client’s endpoint/point of access (PC, iPad, laptop, etc.), the operating system that runs such device, or other local device issues such as hardware, software, virus, spam, the internet, Wi-Fi, or LAN at the Client’s network shall be billable at TOSS’s then professional service rates. If any TOSS’ service provider who licenses software to TOSS which TOSS uses to provide the Services, increases its monthly or annual licensing fees to TOSS, then TOSS may increase the monthly or annual fee TOSS charges the Client for the Services under the Sales Order by the amount of such increase. On January 1 of each year, TOSS shall be entitled to increase the fee specified in a Sales Order by an amount which does not exceed the greater of (i) percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U, US City Average, All Items) published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the most recent twelve (12) month period ending on December 31 or (ii) twenty (20) percent of the then current fee.
- Disputed Charges. If Client disputes any charge or amount on any invoice and such dispute cannot be resolved promptly through good faith discussions between the Parties, Client shall pay the amounts due under this Agreement less the disputed amount, and the Parties shall diligently proceed to resolve such disputed amount. An amount will be considered disputed in good faith if (i) Client delivers a written statement to TOSS on or before the due date of the invoice, describing in detail the basis of the dispute and the amount being withheld by Client, (ii) such written statement represents that the amount in dispute has been determined after due investigation of the facts and that such disputed amount has been determined in good faith, and (iii) all other amounts due from Client that are not in dispute have been paid as and when required under this Agreement.
- Taxes. Fees are exclusive of taxes. Client shall be responsible for the payment of all sales, use and similar taxes arising from or relating to the Services rendered hereunder, except for taxes related to the net income of TOSS and any taxes or obligations imposed upon TOSS under federal, state and local wage laws.
- Late Fees. Client acknowledges and agrees that for any fees that are overdue by forty-five (45) or more days, Client hereby give TOSS permission to automatically charge its credit card on file or initiate and ACH payment for such overdue fees. Overdue balances are subject to a service charge equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum legal interest rate allowed by law. If any amount owing by Client is thirty (30) or more days overdue, TOSS may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, suspend all Services to Client until such amounts are paid in full.
- Confidential Information. During the term of this Agreement, each Party will regard any information provided to it by the other Party and designated in writing as proprietary or confidential to be confidential (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information shall also include information which, to a reasonable person familiar with the disclosing Party’s business and the industry in which it operates, is of a confidential or proprietary nature. The receiving Party shall hold in confidence, and shall not disclose (or permit or suffer its personnel to disclose) any Confidential Information to any person or entity except to a director, officer, employee, outside consultant, or advisor (collectively “Representatives”) who have a need to know such Confidential Information in the course of the performance of their duties for the receiving Party and who are bound by a duty of confidentiality no less protective of the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information than this Agreement. The receiving Party and its Representatives shall use such Confidential Information only for the purpose for which it was disclosed and shall not use or exploit such Confidential Information for its own benefit or the benefit of another without the prior written consent of the disclosing Party. Each Party accepts responsibility for the actions of its Representatives and shall protect the other Party’s Confidential Information in the same manner as it protects its own valuable confidential information, but in no event shall less than reasonable care be used. The Parties expressly agree that the terms and pricing of this Agreement are Confidential Information and Client further agrees that it shall not use the Services for the purposes of conducting comparative analysis, evaluations or product benchmarks with respect to the Services and will not publicly post any analysis or reviews of the Services without TOSS’s prior written approval. A receiving Party shall promptly notify the disclosing Party upon becoming aware of a breach or threatened breach hereunder, and shall cooperate with any reasonable request of the disclosing Party in enforcing its rights.
- Exclusions. Information will not be deemed Confidential Information hereunder if such information: (i) is known prior to receipt from the disclosing Party, without any obligation of confidentiality; (ii) becomes known 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 publicly available, except through a breach of this Agreement; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving Party without use of the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. The receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to the requirements of applicable law, legal process or government regulation, provided that it gives the disclosing Party reasonable prior written notice to permit the disclosing Party to contest such disclosure, and such disclosure is otherwise limited to the required disclosure.
- Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, both Parties acknowledge that any use of the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in a manner inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement may cause the disclosing Party irreparable and immediate damage for which remedies other than injunctive relief may be inadequate. Therefore, both Parties agree that, in addition to any other remedy to which the disclosing Party may be entitled hereunder, at law or equity, the disclosing Party shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions (without the posting of any bond and without proof of actual damages) to restrain such use in addition to other appropriate remedies available under applicable law.
- LIMITED WARRANTY
- Subscription Service Warranty. TOSS warrants that during the term of any Sales Order for the Subscription Service, the Subscription Service will conform, in all material respects, with its Documentation. TOSS does not warrant that it will be able to correct all reported defects or that use of the Subscription Service will be uninterrupted or error free. TOSS makes no warranty regarding features or services provided by third parties. For any breach of the above warranty, TOSS will, at no additional cost to Client, provide remedial services necessary to enable the Subscription Service to conform to the warranty. Client will provide TOSS with a reasonable opportunity to remedy any breach and reasonable assistance in remedying any defects. The remedies set out in this subsection are Client’s sole remedies for breach of the above warranty. Such warranty shall only apply if the Subscription Service has been utilized by Client in accordance with the Sales Order and this Agreement.
- Professional Services Warranty. TOSS warrants that any Professional Services provided hereunder shall be provided in a competent manner in accordance with any specifications set forth in the Sales Order in all material respects. TOSS further warrants that any Work Product provided pursuant to any Professional Services engagement shall comply, in all material respects, with the specifications set forth in the applicable Sales Order. If the Services are not performed as warranted or the Work Product does not so comply, then, upon Client’s written request, TOSS shall promptly re-perform, or cause to be re-performed, such Professional Services, at no additional charge to Client. Such warranties and other obligations shall only survive for thirty (30) days following the completion of the Professional Services or the delivery of each applicable portion of the Work Product, as the case may be. Such re-performance shall be Client’s exclusive remedy and TOSS’s sole liability for any such non-performance. If, however, after repeated efforts, TOSS is unable to remedy such defect in any Work Product, then Client’s sole remedy and TOSS’s entire liability shall be to refund to Client any amounts previously paid by Client for the particular deficient Professional Services or Work Product.
- No Other Warranty. TOSS DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE SERVICES WILL MEET CLIENT’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT ALL ERRORS IN THE SERVICES WILL BE CORRECTED OR THAT THE OVERALL SYSTEM THAT MAKES THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE AVAILABLE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE INTERNET, OTHER TRANSMISSION NETWORKS, AND CLIENT’S LOCAL NETWORK AND EQUIPMENT) WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. THE WARRANTIES STATED IN SECTION 5 ABOVE ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES OFFERED BY TOSS. THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS. CLIENT ASSUMES ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR DETERMINING WHETHER THE SERVICES ARE ACCURATE OR SUFFICIENT FOR CLIENT’S PURPOSES.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
- Consequential Damage Waiver. Except as may arise out of either Party’s breach of Section 4, neither Party will be liable to the other or any third party for loss of profits, or special, indirect, incidental, consequential or exemplary damages, including lost profits and costs, in connection with the performance of the Services, or the performance of any other obligations under this Agreement, even if it is aware of the possibility of the occurrence of such damages.
- Limitation of Liability. Except as may arise out of TOSS’s breach of Section 4 or its indemnification obligations set forth in Section 9.1 below, the total cumulative liability of TOSS to Client for any and all claims and damages under this Agreement, whether arising by statute, contract, tort or otherwise, will not exceed the Services fees paid by Client to TOSS under the Sales Order for the Services which form the subject of the claim during the six (6) month period immediately preceding the event giving rise to the claim. The provisions of this Agreement allocate risks between the Parties. The pricing set forth in each Sales Order reflects this allocation of risk and the limitation of liability specified herein.
- Term. This Agreement will commence on the Effective Date as set forth above and will continue in effect until otherwise terminated in accordance with Section 7.2 below. The term of each Sales Order for the Subscription Service shall be set forth on the Sales Order (together with any renewal term, the “Subscription Term”). Upon the expiration of the initial term of any Sales Order or any renewal term, unless either Party provides the other with written notice of its election not to renew such Order Form at least sixty (60) days prior to such renewal date, the Sales Order will automatically renew, for a term equal in duration to the initial term of such Sales Order at, subject to the following sentence, the rates specified on the Sales Order. TOSS reserves the right to change the rates, applicable charges and usage policies and to introduce new charges, for such Sales Order upon providing Client written notice thereof (which notice may be provided by e-mail) at least 60 days prior to the then current renewal date of the Sales Order. All Sales Orders dated 1999 to present year are governed by this MSA.
- Termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may terminate this Agreement or any Sales Order (i) immediately in the event of a material breach of this Agreement or any such Sales Order by the other Party that is not cured within thirty (30) days of written notice thereof from the other Party, or (ii) immediately if the other Party ceases doing business or is the subject of a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding, that is not dismissed within sixty (60) days of filing. Termination of a Sales Order shall not be deemed a termination of this Agreement. Termination of this Agreement shall, however, terminate all outstanding Sales Orders. Either Party may also terminate this Agreement upon no less than sixty (60) days’ prior written notice to the other Party for any reason, if at such time there are no outstanding Sales Orders then currently in effect. All rights and obligations of the Parties which by their nature are reasonably intended to survive such termination or expiration will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement and each Sales Order.
- Effect of Termination. Upon any termination or expiration of this Agreement or any applicable Sales Order, TOSS shall no longer provide the applicable Services to Client and Client shall cease and cause its Users to cease using the Services. Upon termination of this Agreement or any applicable Sales Order for the Subscription Service by TOSS due to Client’s uncured breach, in addition to any other remedies TOSS may have for such breach at law or in equity, Client shall pay TOSS for all fees that had accrued prior to the termination date and, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, Client shall continue to pay TOSS for all monthly service fees that would have continued to accrue through the end of the then current term of the Sales Order had it not been so terminated. In addition to the foregoing, TOSS also reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to suspend providing the Services and Client agrees that TOSS may suspend Client’s access to the Subscription Service at any time, without having to terminate this Agreement or a Sales Order, if Client is more than thirty (30) days late with respect to any payments due hereunder. Upon such suspension, Client shall still be liable for all payments that have accrued prior to the date of suspension and that will accrue throughout the remainder of the term. TOSS will not be obligated to restore access to the Services until Client has paid all fees owed to TOSS. Except as expressly provided herein, termination of this Agreement by either Party will be a nonexclusive remedy for breach and will be without prejudice to any other right or remedy of such Party. Upon termination of this Agreement, each Party shall promptly return or destroy all Confidential Information of the other Party in its possession.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, and in consideration for the payment of fees set forth on each respective Sales Order for the Subscription Service, TOSS hereby grants to Client a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access the Subscription Service solely for Client’s internal business purposes and solely for the specific service offering (as indicated on the applicable Sales Order). This license is restricted to use by Client and its Users and does not include the right to use the Subscription Service on behalf of any third party or the right to permit any non-User to access or use the Subscription Service. Client also agrees to be bound by any further restrictions set forth on the Sales Order. All rights not expressly granted to Client are reserved by TOSS and its licensors. There are no implied rights.
- Affiliates. Client may make the Subscription Service available to its Affiliates provided that all licensing restrictions are complied with in each instance by each such Affiliate and that Client is liable for any breach of the terms and conditions of this Agreement by any of its Affiliates. Any license restrictions set forth on a Sales Order shall be deemed to apply to Client and its Affiliates in the aggregate.
- Handling of Client Content Upon Termination. Client agrees that following termination of Client’s account and/or use of the Subscription Service, TOSS may immediately deactivate Client’s account. Client further agrees that TOSS shall not be liable to Client nor to any third party for any termination of Client access to the Subscription Service or deletion of Client Content, provided that TOSS is in compliance with the terms of this Section.
- Users: Passwords, Access and Notification. Client shall authorize access to and assign unique passwords in line with system security configuration to the number of Users purchased by Client on the Sales Order. User logins are for designated Users and cannot be shared or used by more than one User, but any User login may be reassigned to another User as needed. Client will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of User’s passwords. Client agrees to immediately notify TOSS if Client becomes aware of any loss or theft or unauthorized use of any of Client’s passwords.
- Modifications to Subscription Service. TOSS may make modifications to the Subscription Service or particular components of the Subscription Service from time to time provided that such modifications do not materially degrade any functionality or features of the Subscription Service and TOSS will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Client of any material modifications.
- Suspension for Ongoing Harm. Client agrees that TOSS may with reasonably contemporaneous notice (which may be made by email or telephone) to Client suspend Client’s access to the Subscription Service if TOSS reasonably concludes that Client’s Subscription Service is being used to engage in denial of service attacks, spamming, or illegal activity, and/or use of Client’s Subscription Service is causing immediate, material and ongoing harm to TOSS or others. In the extraordinary event that TOSS suspends Client’s access to the Subscription Service, TOSS will use commercially reasonable efforts to limit the suspension to the offending portion of the Subscription Service and resolve the issues causing the suspension of Subscription Service. Client agrees that TOSS shall not be liable to Client nor to any third party for any suspension of the Subscription Service under such circumstances as described in this Section.
- Client Support and Training. For the duration of the term of any active Sales Order, and unless otherwise specified in a Sales Order, Technical Support will be available from 8:00 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday (Eastern Standard Time), excluding Company observed holidays. Training will be provided to all approved Users under terms specified in a Sales Order.
