4.2 Changes to Professional Services. You may request in writing that reasonable revisions be made with respect to the Professional Services set forth in a Service Order. If your requested revisions materially increase the scope of the Professional Services or the effort required to perform the Professional Services under the Service Order, then we will deliver to you a written proposal reflecting our reasonable determination of the revised Professional Services, delivery schedule, and payment schedule, if any, that applies to the requested revisions. If you approve the proposal, then the parties will execute an amendment to the Service Order. Otherwise, the then-existing Service Order will remain in full force and effect, and we will have no obligation with respect to the relevant change request.

5. FEES AND PAYMENT
5.1 Fees and Payment Terms. You agree to pay all fees set out in a Service Order and any other amounts payable under this Agreement. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or the applicable Service Order, upon both parties’ execution of a Service Order, the Service Order is non-cancellable and the fees are non-refundable and based on Services purchased, not actual usage. The initial term specified in a Service Order is a non-divisible, continuous commitment, regardless of the invoice schedule, and pricing is based on purchase of the Services in the specified quantity and configuration for the entire initial term (or applicable renewal term). Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Service Order (a) Subscription Fees and fees for any Professional Services, Technical Support Services, and other Services are due annually in advance; (b) all invoiced amounts are due in full within 30 days from the invoice date (regardless of the date of approval of any purchase order); and (c) Subscription Fees for each renewal term will be invoiced and payable at Tesser Insights’ rates in effect at the time of renewal. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any renewal of Subscription Services at a lower volume or for a changed configuration will result in re-pricing at renewal without regard to the prior term’s per-unit pricing. Any purchase order you submit is for your own internal purposes and any purchase order terms that add to or in any way conflict with the terms of this Agreement or the applicable Service Order are rejected and will have no effect. At your request, we will reference the purchase order number on our invoices (solely for your administrative convenience), so long as you provide us with the purchase order number at least 15 days before the invoice date. The charges in an invoice will be considered accepted by you unless we are notified of a good faith dispute in writing within 15 days of the date of the invoice. Unless expressly provided otherwise in the applicable Service Order, all amounts payable under this Agreement are denominated and must be paid in United States dollars. You must provide accurate and complete billing information and keep all such information current.
5.2 Credit Card Payments. If you use a credit card to set up an account or pay for any of the Services, you must be authorized to use the credit card information that you enter when you create the billing account. You authorize us to charge your credit card for the Services for the initial term and any renewal terms of a Service Order as provided in Section 5.1, plus a reasonable processing fee. We may charge your credit card (a) in advance; (b) at the time of purchase; (c) shortly after purchase; and/or (d) on a recurring basis for a subscription to the Subscription Services. If you set up a Free Trial using a credit card, you agree that we may automatically charge your credit card the applicable Subscription Fees plus a reasonable processing fee when the Free Trial ends unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the Free Trial.
5.3 Late Payment. Without limiting our other rights or remedies, any amount not subject to a good faith dispute and not paid when due will be subject to finance charges equal to 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable usury law, whichever is less, determined and compounded monthly from the date due until the date paid, and you will reimburse us for any costs or expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by us to collect any such amount. Amounts due from you under this Agreement or a Service Order may not be withheld or offset by you against amounts due to you for any reason.
5.4 Taxes. The fees stated in a Service Order do not include local, state, federal, or foreign taxes (e.g., value-added, sales, or use taxes), or fees, duties, or other governmental charges resulting from this Agreement or any Service Order ("Taxes"). You are responsible for paying all applicable Taxes, excluding taxes on Tesser Insights’ net income or property. If we determine that we have the legal obligation to pay or collect such Taxes, we will add such Taxes to the applicable invoice and you will pay such Taxes, unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate from the appropriate taxing authority. If a taxing authority subsequently pursues us for unpaid Taxes for which you are responsible under this Agreement and which you did not pay to us, we may invoice you and you will pay such Taxes to us or directly to the taxing authority, plus all applicable interest, penalties and fees.
5.5 Future Functionality. Your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by us regarding future functionality or features.
6. TERM AND TERMINATION
6.1 Term. This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and continues until terminated in accordance with the terms of Section 6.2. Each Service Order commences on the effective date specified in the Service Order and, unless earlier terminated for cause pursuant to Section 6.2, continues for the initial term specified in such Service Order and any renewal terms. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Service Order, each Service Order will automatically renew for additional successive one-year terms unless at least 30 days before the end of the then-current term either party provides written notice to the other party of non-renewal.
6.2 Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement upon 30 days’ written notice if at the time of notice there are no Service Orders then in effect. Either party may terminate this Agreement or an applicable Service Order for cause immediately upon written notice if the other party does not cure its material breach of this Agreement or the applicable Service Order within 30 days of receiving written notice of the breach from the non-breaching party. Termination of this Agreement for cause will terminate all Service Orders then in effect. If you fail to timely pay any Subscription Fees or other fees owing under this Agreement or a Service Order, we may, without limitation to any of our other rights or remedies, suspend performance of the Services until we receive all amounts due, or terminate this Agreement or the applicable Service Order pursuant to this Section 6.2. We may terminate your license to use Free Versions, Free Trials or Beta Versions at any time in our sole discretion.

If this Agreement or an applicable Service Order is terminated for any reason: (a) we have no obligation to provide or perform any Services after the effective date of the termination; (b) you will immediately pay to us any Subscription Fees, fees for Professional Services, and other amounts that have accrued prior to the effective date of the termination; (c) any and all liabilities accrued prior to the effective date of termination will survive; (d) if requested by us, you will provide us with a written certification signed by your authorized representative certifying that all use of the Subscription Services and Documentation by you, your Affiliates, and Permitted Third Parties has been discontinued and the Installed Software has been de-installed from your and your Affiliates’ computer systems; and (e) Sections 2.2, 3.7, 4.5, 5, 6.3, 7, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, 9.3, 11, 12, 13 and 14 will survive termination. If this Agreement or a Service Order is terminated by us for your uncured material breach, or by you other than as a result of Tesser Insights’ material uncured breach, you will pay us the amounts due under all terminated Service Orders for the remainder of the relevant term. If you terminate this Agreement or a Service Order for Tesser Insights’ uncured material breach, as your exclusive remedy, we will provide you a pro-rata refund of all prepaid, unused Subscription Fees for the remainder of the relevant term. If requested by you in writing prior to the effective date of termination of this Agreement or an applicable Service Order, we will make the relevant instance of the Tesser Insights Platform accessible to you at no additional charge for a period of 30 days after the effective date of termination for the sole limited purpose of downloading or exporting Subscriber Data. We have no obligation to retain Subscriber Data after such 30-day period and we may, unless legally prohibited, thereafter delete all Subscriber Data in our possession or control.
7. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
7.1 Definition. "Confidential Information" means any non-public business information, know-how, trade secrets, and other information, in any form, that is designated as confidential or that a reasonable person should understand to be confidential due to the nature of the information or the circumstances of disclosure, and is disclosed by or on behalf of either party or its Affiliates (the “disclosing party”) to the other party or its Affiliates (the “receiving party”), directly or indirectly, in writing, orally, or by inspection of tangible objects, whether before or after the Effective Date. Confidential Information includes, without limitation, Subscriber Data (which is your Confidential Information), and information regarding the Subscription Services, Tesser Insights Platform, Beta Versions, our systems and networks, product plans, security information and assessments, audit reports, pricing information, and the terms of this Agreement and any Service Order (all of which is our Confidential Information). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, “Confidential Information” excludes information that: (a) is or becomes generally publicly available through no action or inaction of the receiving party; (b) is already in the possession of the receiving party on a non-confidential basis at the time of disclosure by the disclosing party, as shown by the receiving party’s written records or other competent evidence in the receiving party’s possession; (c) is obtained by the receiving party on a non-confidential basis from a third party without, to the receiving party’s knowledge, a breach of the third party’s obligations of confidentiality; or (d) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of or reference to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information, as shown by written records or other competent evidence in the receiving party’s possession.
7.2 Maintenance of Confidentiality. The receiving party agrees to hold in confidence and not disclose to any third party, except as expressly permitted under this Agreement, Confidential Information of the disclosing party, and to take reasonable steps, substantially equivalent to the steps it takes to protect its own confidential information of like nature, but no less than reasonable steps, to prevent the unauthorized use or disclosure of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. The receiving party may disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to the receiving party’s and its Affiliates’ employees or agents who reasonably need to have access to such information to perform the receiving party’s obligations under this Agreement or any Service Order and are bound by obligations of confidentiality and nonuse at least as restrictive as the terms of this Agreement. In addition, you may disclose our Confidential Information to Permitted Third Parties to the extent required for the Permitted Third Parties to be able to access and use the Subscription Services pursuant to this Agreement, and we may disclose your Confidential Information to our subcontractors in connection with performance of the Services; provided, however, that such Permitted Third Parties and subcontractors must be bound by obligations of confidentiality and nonuse at least as restrictive as the terms of this Agreement. The receiving party may disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to the extent required by law so long as the receiving party: (a) gives the disclosing party written notice of the requirement prior to the disclosure (where permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the disclosing party’s expense, in limiting disclosure or obtaining an order protecting the Confidential Information from public disclosure; and (b) in the event Confidential Information is nevertheless required to be disclosed, discloses only such portion of Confidential Information as is advised by its counsel to be legally required, and takes reasonable steps to obtain confidential treatment of the Confidential Information so disclosed.
7.3 Return of Confidential Information. Upon written request of the disclosing party, the receiving party will promptly return to the disclosing party or destroy all materials, in any medium, to the extent containing or reflecting any of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. The obligations in this Section 7 survive for three years following expiration or termination of this Agreement, except that Confidential Information that is non-public personally identifiable information or that constitutes a trade secret or proprietary technology of the disclosing party will continue to be subject to the confidentiality obligations of this Section 7 for as long as such information remains Confidential Information or a trade secret.

We will promptly notify you following our discovery of any unauthorized access to, or use, disclosure, alteration or destruction of, Subscriber Data (a "Security Breach"). In the event of a Security Breach caused by our breach, we will cooperate with you in good faith to investigate the cause of the Security Breach, to take reasonable steps to prevent any future reoccurrence, and to enable you to comply with applicable data breach notification laws.
8.2 Data Protection Agreement.
