For purposes of this Service Attachment, “Provider Materials” means any text, graphical content, techniques, methods, designs, software, hardware, source code, data (including Reference Data), passwords, APIs, documentation or any improvement or upgrade thereto, that is used by or on our behalf to provide the Services.
Some components of the Services or the Provider Materials may be provided through or licensed from third parties, including but not limited to third-party software, products or services (“Third-Party Materials”). Client’s use of all such Third-Party Materials is subject to the terms of this Service Attachment.
Provider, and not those third parties, will provide any and all technical support related to the Services, including support related to those third-party components. However, under certain circumstances, pursuant to the terms of applicable third-party license or services agreements, Provider may be obligated to provide certain information to those third parties regarding the Services and/or regarding your identity. You consent to such disclosures.
Where practicable, Provider will make available to Client, for Client’s review, links to or copies of license agreements relating to Third-Party Materials, including their warranties and restrictions. Client understands and agrees that it may contract directly with such third parties to receive their respective Third-Party Materials, and hereby authorizes Provider to accept such license terms on Client’s behalf. Client understands and agrees that Third-Party Materials will be warranted only by the third-party provider and only as and to the extent set forth in such provider’s license agreement, and that Provider will not be responsible, and makes no warranty, with respect to Third-Party Materials. Furthermore, Provider accepts no responsibility for service failures, data loss, service interruption, third-party service providers, or Third-Party Materials.
Third-party software publishers, including but not limited to, Microsoft will be intended third-party beneficiaries of the Agreement, with the right to enforce provisions of the Agreement and to verify compliance. If any third-party software publisher believes in good faith that Client is not complying with its end-user terms and conditions (“End-User License”), Provider will cooperate in good faith with the third-party publisher to investigate and remedy the non-compliance.
Within thirty (30) days of the termination of this Agreement, Provider shall remove, or cause to be removed, all copies of Client’s Services and/or Provider Materials from the Client’s devices, or otherwise render the software, the Services and/or the Provider Materials permanently unusable.

High-Risk Use does not include utilization of the Services for administrative purposes, to store configuration data, engineering and/or configuration tools, or other non-control applications, the failure of which would not result in death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage. Client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Provider from any third-party claim arising out of Client’s use of the Services in connection with any High-Risk Use.

PROVIDER OBLIGATIONS AND WARRANTY
In addition to delivery of the Services, Provider accepts the following obligations under this Service Attachment:
Data Security and Privacy
In addition to its other confidentiality obligations under this Service Attachment, Provider shall not use, edit or disclose to any party other than Client any electronic data or information stored by Provider, or transmitted to Provider, using the Services (“Client Data”). Provider further shall maintain the security and integrity of any Client Data under Provider’s direct control, in accordance with any parameters described in this Service Attachment.
As between Provider and Client, all Client Data is owned exclusively by Client. Client Data constitutes Confidential Information subject to the terms of the MSA. Provider may access Client’s User accounts, including Client Data, solely to respond to service or technical problems or otherwise at Client’s request.
Routine server and application maintenance and upgrades will occur during scheduled maintenance windows, and some applications, systems or devices may be unavailable or non-responsive during such times.
Provider warrants that the Services will perform materially in accordance with any documentation for the Services supplied by Provider. All such documentation is incorporated as a part of this Service Attachment. Provider reserves the right at any time to modify the documentation by supplying substitute documentation, at which time such substitute documentation will supersede and replace in its entirety any documentation previously supplied. However, Provider further warrants that the functionality of the Services will not materially decrease from that available as of the Service Start Date (defined below).
HOWEVER, PROVIDER DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, OR COMPLETELY SECURE. THERE ARE RISKS INHERENT IN INTERNET CONNECTIVITY THAT COULD RESULT IN THE LOSS OF YOUR PRIVACY, CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, AND PROPERTY. WE HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE SECURITY OTHER THAN AS STATED IN THIS SERVICE ATTACHMENT.
IN ADDITION, CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THIS AGREEMENT CONVEYS NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, BY ANY THIRD-PARTY VENDORS OF SOFTWARE PRODUCTS MADE AVAILABLE TO CUSTOMER BY PROVIDER AND THAT THOSE VENDORS DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL, ARISING FROM THE SERVICES.
ACCEPTABLE USE AND LIABILITY
Client shall comply with all policies for acceptable use of the Services, as described in Provider’s Acceptable Use Policy. Provider’s policies for acceptable use of the Services are incorporated by reference as a part of this Service Attachment. Provider reserves the right at any time to modify the policies, at which time the modified acceptable use policies will supersede and replace in their entireties any prior acceptable use policies.
Client is solely responsible for damages resulting from Client’s violation of this Service Attachment, and those damages will be subject to the obligations of indemnification set forth in the Master Services Agreement. Although Provider may host any software solution Services or Client Data, it does not relieve Client of its responsibility or obligation to indemnify Provider pursuant to the terms of the Master Services Agreement and this Service Attachment.
Prior to the delivery of the Services, Provider will charge a Setup Fee in order to deploy and configure the Services under this Service Attachment. Provider will identify the Setup Fee in an initial invoice, and Client shall pay the Setup Fee, as set forth in the Master Services Agreement (“MSA”). Provider shall have no obligation to continue with the delivery of any Services under this Service Attachment until it receives payment for the Setup Fee.
Provider will conduct a monthly inventory of the number of users, devices or networks connected or connecting to the Services, based on the Service units identified in the attached (the “Service Units”).
If the number of Service Units determined by Provider in any month is greater than the number of Service Units determined at the beginning of the preceding month, Provider (1) will include in its next invoice charges for all Service Units added during the preceding month, and (2) will increase the number of Service Units invoiced in future months, unless and until Provider determines that the number of Service Units has decreased. Client shall pay Service Fees specified in the Order for the number of Service Units identified in each invoice.
Under no circumstances during the Initial Term (defined below) may the total number of Service Units decrease to less than the number of Service Units indicated on the first month’s invoice for Services. Provider’s invoices will be based on at least that number, notwithstanding any actual decreases in those numbers. Client shall pay all such charges as set forth in the MSA.
Adjustments to Service Fee Rates
In addition to any fee increase resulting from changes to the number of Service Units, at any time after the parties sign this Service Attachment, Provider may deliver an updated Fee Schedule identifying any new or modified Service Fee Rates that it will begin charging for any Services provided to Client under this Service Attachment. Provider shall give Client no less than thirty (30) days’ notice of any such Fee Schedule updates. Following its receipt of such notice, if any rates previously charged under this Service Attachment will have increased more than 5% over the rates charged during the last 12 months, then Client may terminate this Service Attachment without incurring any additional charges or penalties, if any, that it ordinarily would incur for such termination.
This Service Attachment is effective on the date specified on the Order (the “Service Start Date”). Unless properly terminated by either party, this agreement will remain in effect through the end of the term specified on the Order (the “Initial Term”).
“RENEWAL” MEANS THE EXTENSION OF ANY INITIAL TERM SPECIFIED ON AN ORDER FOR AN ADDITIONAL TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD FOLLOWING THE EXPIRATION OF THE INITIAL TERM, OR IN THE CASE OF A SUBSEQUENT RENEWAL, A RENEWAL TERM. THIS SERVICE ATTACHMENT WILL RENEW AUTOMATICALLY UPON THE EXPIRATION OF THE INITIAL TERM OR A RENEWAL TERM UNLESS ONE PARTY PROVIDES WRITTEN NOTICE TO THE OTHER PARTY OF ITS INTENT TO TERMINATE AT LEAST SIXTY (60) DAYS PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE INITIAL TERM OR OF THE THEN-CURRENT RENEWAL TERM.
CLIENT MAY CANCEL AN AUTOMATIC RENEWAL BY CONTACTING PROVIDER.
If the Order specifies no Initial Term with respect to any or all Services, then we will deliver those Services on a month-to-month basis. We will continue to do so until one party provides written notice to the other party of its intent to terminate those Services, in which case we will cease delivering those Services at the end of the next calendar month following receipt such written notice is received by the other party.

As long as Client is current with payment of: (i) the Fees under this Agreement, (ii) the Fees under any Project Services Attachment or Statement of Work for Off-Boarding, and/or (iii) the Termination Fee prior to transitioning the Services away from Provider’s control, then if either party terminates this Service Attachment, Provider will assist Client in the orderly termination of services, including timely transfer of the Services to another designated provider. Client shall pay Provider at our then prevailing rates for any such assistance. Termination of this Service Attachment for any reason by either party immediately nullifies all access to our services. Provider will immediately uninstall any affected software from Client’s devices, and Client hereby consent to such uninstall procedures.
Upon request by Client, Provider may provide Client a copy of Client Data in exchange for a data-copy fee invoiced at Provider’s then prevailing rates, not including the cost of any media used to store the data. After thirty (30) days following termination of this Agreement by either party for any reason, Provider shall have no obligation to maintain or provide any Client Data and shall thereafter, unless legally prohibited, delete all Client Data on its systems or otherwise in its possession or under its control.
Provider may audit Client regarding any third-party services. Provider may increase any Fees for Off-boarding that are passed to the Provider for those third-party services Client used or purchased while using the Service.
Client agrees that upon Termination or Off-Boarding, Client shall pay all remaining third-party service fees and any additional third-party termination fees.
