3. PRICE, PAYMENT, AND DELIVERY

3.1 Fees.  Customer agrees to pay to Spot AI the fees for Services as specified in the Order Forms (“Fees”). Shipments for the IVR and any cameras are FOB Origin.  If Customer payment is more than twenty (20) days overdue, Spot AI reserves the right to disable Customer's use of the Services, provided it has given at least 10 days' notice of such intent.

3.2 Verification.  Spot AI shall be permitted to remotely verify Customer’s usage of the Services as it deems reasonably necessary, including but not limited to verifying the number of connected cameras or other devices.  If Spot AI discovers under-reported or underpaid fees related to usage of camera feeds or video recorders, Spot AI shall invoice and Customer shall pay such underpaid fees based on the Customer’s Order Form pricing or Spot AI’s then-current price list and terms and conditions in effect at the time.

3.3 Taxes.  Fees do not include sales, VAT, withholding, use, property or similar taxes. Customer is responsible for the payment of such taxes, however designated or incurred. Spot AI may pay, withhold and remit any such taxes to the appropriate tax authority on behalf of Customer, and Customer shall reimburse Spot AI for any such taxes paid, payable or otherwise incurred.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Customer provides Spot AI with a valid certificate from an applicable federal, state or local tax authority establishing that Customer is exempt from a specific tax in which such tax authority has jurisdiction over at least ten (10) days prior to the due date upon which such tax must be paid, Spot AI will refrain from paying, withholding or otherwise remitting such tax on behalf of Customer. Customer shall indemnify Spot AI with respect to any such taxes, interest, penalties or losses, including reasonable accounting and legal fees, incurred in the event any such tax authority later invalidates or revokes such certificate or otherwise seeks collection of such tax from Spot AI.  Customer agrees and understands that the taxation of any transaction and the calculation of taxes may be affected by the delivery method and delivery location of the Software and Hardware.

4. TERM, SUSPENSION and TERMINATION

4.1 Term.  This Agreement becomes effective on the Effective Date and shall continue until the license end date of the last active Order Form, unless terminated earlier as provided hereunder (“Subscription Term”).  Order Forms will renew automatically for additional successive one (1) year terms, unless (i) signed Order Form specifies different renewal terms, (ii) Agreement is terminated earlier in accordance with Section 4.2, or (iii) notice of non-renewal is given by one party to the other party at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the then-current Subscription Term.

4.2 Suspension.  Spot AI reserves the right to suspend the Services if Spot AI reasonably concludes, with sufficient tangible evidence that Customer or a User’s use (i) is, or has a high likelihood of, causing immediate or ongoing harm to Spot AI, its customers, or any third party; (ii) poses a threat of interference with, or obstruction to, the operation of the Services that would likely have an adverse effect on the delivery of the Services to other customers of Spot AI or on the systems or content of any other customer of Spot AI, (iii) is a Prohibited Use, or (iv) will likely cause, or has already caused, Spot AI to be in violation of applicable law (“Suspension Acts”). In the extraordinary event that Spot AI must suspend the Services, Spot AI shall immediately, but no later than twenty-four (24) hours, notify Customer of the anticipated suspension and provide Customer with seventy-two (72) hours prior written notification of the suspension of Services for the Parties to diligently attempt to resolve the issue except in the case(s) where suspension of Services are needed to prevent irreparable damage to other Spot AI customers. Spot AI shall not be liable to Customer or to any third party for any liabilities, claims or expenses arising from or relating to any suspension of the Services in accordance with this Section. Nothing in this Section will limit Spot AI’s rights under any other section of this Agreement.

4.3 Effect of Suspension.  If Spot AI suspends or disables Customer’s right to access or use any portion or all of the Services pursuant to Section 4.2, Customer will remain responsible for any applicable Fees and charges for any Services to which Customer or their Users continue to have access.  If Customer is unable or unwilling to remedy any Suspension Acts during the suspension, such Suspension Acts shall be considered a material breach, and Spot AI may terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 4.4.

4.4 Termination.  Each party will have the right to terminate this Agreement if the other party breaches any material term of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after written notice thereof.  Customer's breach of its obligations under Sections 5 (Intellectual Property Rights) or 9 (Confidentiality) or if Customer files for bankruptcy, becomes insolvent, or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, shall result in an immediate termination.

4.5 Effects of Termination. Upon any termination hereunder, Customer shall immediately cease use of, and shall irretrievably destroy or return (at Spot AI’s request), all copies of any Services and Spot AI Confidential Information in every form. Spot AI will give Customer seven (7) days to download or otherwise save Customer Content, after which Customer will have no access to the Spot AI dashboard or interface, and Spot AI will have no access to Customer Content.

4.6 Survival.  Sections 2.5, 3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 5, 6.2, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 shall survive such termination. In the event of any termination hereunder, Customer shall not be entitled to any refund of any payments made by Customer, except to the extent the cause of termination has been finally determined to result from a breach ofSection 6.1 (Performance Warranty), in which case, Customer is entitled to a pro-rata refund of any prepaid, unusedFees.  Termination for any other reason shall not relieve Customer from its obligation to pay Fees that remain unpaid.

5. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

5.1 Reservation of Rights.

It is Customer’s sole responsibility to provide any required notice to or opt-out as well as obtain any necessary consents from any and all persons and third parties regarding collection, processing, and storage of Customer Content (including video recordings and biometric data). Customer represents and warrants that neither Customer’s collection, use and/or transmission of the Customer Content, including video recordings and images and biometric data, if applicable, nor Customer's use of Customer Content as described herein will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party's intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy or result in the violation of applicable law.  Customer represents and warrants that it has obtained all rights in the Customer Content to authorize Spot AI to use, copy, process, store, transmit, distribute, perform, transform, and display the Customer Content to provide Customer the Services and to perform all other acts authorized by Customer in connection with the Customer Content.

Spot AI warrants that the Software will substantially conform to its Documentation during the Subscription Term, unless the Software is not used in accordance with the Documentation or is modified by Customer or a third party. Spot AI does not warrant that the Software will operate uninterrupted or that it will be free from minor defects or errors that do not materially affect such performance, or that it meets all of Customer's business requirements. If Customer reports and Spot AI validates the existence of a Software nonconformance, Spot AI will repair or replace the nonconforming Software. This is Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy under this warranty.

6.2 Express Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED ABOVE IN SECTION 6.1, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SPOT AI EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

7. THIRD PARTY CLAIMS

7.1 Indemnity and Defense of Customer. Spot AI shall indemnify and defend Customer against claims brought against Customer by any third party alleging that Customer's Use of the Software, in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, constitutes a direct infringement or misappropriation of such third party’s United States patent claim(s), copyright or trade secret rights, and Spot AI will pay damages finally awarded against Customer (or the amount of any settlement Spot AI enters into) with respect to such claims. This obligation of Spot AI shall not apply if the alleged infringement or misappropriation results from (i) Use of the Software in conjunction with any other software; (ii) Use of the Software with an apparatus, system or device other than the Hardware and cameras or video recorders supplied by Customer; (iii) failure to promptly use an update provided by Spot AI if such infringement or misappropriation could have been avoided by use of the update; or (iv) any use not permitted by this Agreement. This obligation of Spot AI also shall not apply if Customer fails to timely notify Spot AI in writing of any such claim; however Customer’s failure to provide or delay in providing such notice shall not relieve Spot AI of its obligations under this Section except to the extent Spot AI is prejudiced by Customer’s failure to provide or delay in providing such notice. Spot AI is permitted to control fully the defense and any settlement of any such claim as long as such settlement shall not include a financial obligation on or admission of liability by Customer. In the event Customer declines Spot AI’s proffered defense, or otherwise fails to give full control of the defense to Spot AI’s designated counsel, then Customer waives Spot AI’s obligations under this Section 7.1. Customer shall reasonably cooperate in the defense of such claim and may appear, at its own expense, through counsel reasonably acceptable to Spot AI. Spot AI may settle or mitigate damages from any claim or potential claim by substituting alternative substantially equivalent non-infringing programs and supporting documentation for the Software. Customer shall not undertake any action in response to any infringement or misappropriation, or alleged infringement or misappropriation of the Software that is prejudicial to Spot AI’s rights.

7.2 THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 7.1 STATE THE SOLE, EXCLUSIVE, AND ENTIRE LIABILITY OF SPOT AI AND ITS LICENSORS TO CUSTOMER, AND IS CUSTOMER'S SOLE REMEDY, WITH RESPECT TO THE INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF THIRD-PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
