THESE ARE THE EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES FROM PROVIDER AND REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. The warranty for Services ends when the Services end. These warranties will not apply if there has been misuse, modification, damage not caused by Provider, or failure to comply with Provider’s instructions.

Customer is responsible for its use of the products and services of Provider and of any third parties. Without limiting the foregoing, Customer is responsible for all activities that occur under Customer’s account(s), regardless of whether the activities are undertaken by Customer, any end users, Customer’s employees, or some other third party (including Customer's contractors or agents) and, except to the extent caused by Provider’s breach of this Agreement, Provider and its affiliates are not responsible for unauthorized access to Customer’s account. Customer will contact Provider immediately if Customer believes an unauthorized third party may be using Customer’s account or if Customer’s account information is lost or stolen. Customer shall ensure that its end users’ use of the Services is not illegal, unlawful, or in violation of the Acceptable Use Policy. Customer will be solely responsible for any penalties or liabilities incurred as a result of Customer’s noncompliance with the provisions of this Section 3. Customer shall not use the Services for unlawful, obscene, offensive or fraudulent content or activity, in any jurisdiction for any user, such as advocating or causing harm, interfering with or violating the integrity or security of a network or system, evading filters, sending unsolicited, abusive or deceptive messages, viruses or harmful code, or violating third party rights. If there is a complaint or notice of violation, use may be suspended until resolved, and terminated if not resolved promptly. Customer may only have one account.
4.CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITIES; PROHIBITED USES.
4.1 Customer is solely responsible for the selection, compatibility, licensing, development, accuracy, performance, operation, maintenance, and support of all content. Provider may immediately (and without prior notice) block access to any content (i) that Provider believes violates the law, misappropriates or infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party, or violates the terms and conditions of this Agreement; or (ii) pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, a subpoena, or an order issued by a court or government agency.
4.2 Customer is responsible for obtaining all necessary permissions to use, provide, store and process content in or with the Services and grants Provider permission to do the same. Customer is responsible for adequate content back-up. Some of Customer’s content may be subject to governmental regulation or may require security measures beyond those specified by Provider for an offering. Customer will not input or provide such content unless Provider has first agreed in writing to implement additional required security measures.
4.3 Customer must use reasonable security precautions (including, without limitation, keeping its password and other account details secret) in connection with its use of the Services. Customer is responsible for use of the Services by any person who accesses the Services with Customer’s account credentials. NEITHER PROVIDER NOR ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS (E.G., HACKING) INTO PROVIDER’S SERVERS OR SERVICES, OR CUSTOMER’S TRANSMISSION FACILITIES, PREMISES OR EQUIPMENT, OR FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO CONTENT, PROGRAMS, PROCEDURES, OR INFORMATION THEREON, UNLESS AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT THAT THIS DISCLAIMER IS PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. Provider will give Customer notice of any unauthorized third party access to Customer’s content of which Provider becomes aware and will use reasonable efforts to remediate identified security vulnerabilities. If content is lost or damaged, Provider will assist Customer in restoring it to the Services from Customer’s last available backup copy in compatible format.
4.4 Customer represents and warrants to Provider that: (a) Customer or Customer’s licensors own all right, title, and interest in and to content provided by Customer or that Customer is authorized to use such content in accordance with this Agreement; (b) Customer has all rights in such content necessary to grant the rights contemplated by this Agreement; and (d) the information Customer provided in connection with Customer’s registration for, subscription to, and use of the Services is accurate and complete.
4.5 Customer may not use the Services for any application where a failure of those Services could result in death, serious injury, environmental damage, or property damage. Examples of prohibited uses include medical life support devices, water treatment facilities, nuclear facilities, weapons systems, chemical facilities, mass transportation, aviation and flammable environments. Customer acknowledges that Provider makes no assurances that the Services are suitable for any high-risk uses.
5.PAYMENTS, BILLING DISPUTES, AND TAXES ON SERVICES.
5.1 Customer agrees to pay all applicable charges specified by Provider, charges for use in excess of authorizations, any customs or other duty, tax, levy, or fee imposed by any authority resulting from Customer’s activities under this Agreement, and any late payment fees. All fees for Services will be charged to Customer’s credit card or account without invoice. The calculation of all fees for Services will be based solely on Provider’s records and data. Any amounts due not received by Provider within thirty (30) days of the date that payment becomes due will be subject to interest at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law plus any attorneys' fees and costs incurred by Provider in collecting any such amounts.
5.2 For prepaid Services, in order to activate the Services, Customer shall deposit funds to Customer’s account in accordance with Provider’s instructions. The Services shall not be activated until Customer’s account contains sufficient funds. Provider shall decrement Customer’s account balance in increments that are rounded up to the nearest minute, reflecting Customer’s actual minutes of usage. For Customer’s convenience, provider will provide estimates of monthly/weekly/daily cost upon written request. Customer may, at Customer’s option, set up recurrent payments to avoid service interruption for non-payment. When the balance in the account is insufficient to cover amounts due, provider will push a low balance alert on Customer’s network management page. Provider will also send alerts to Customer via email or text messages if applicable. Customer shall replenish the account balance within 72 hours after receiving such alert. The Services will be suspended immediately when Customer’s account balance drops to zero. If Customer fails to timely replenish its account balance to levels sufficient to cover amounts due, Provider may immediately terminate this Agreement or the Services upon the expiration of the 72-hour period set forth above.
In the case that Customer is not obtaining prepaid Services, Customer’s credit card will automatically be charged at the end of each month without invoice. Customer may access and download invoices at any time from Provider’s web portal.
Upon termination of this Agreement or the Services, Provider may permanently delete data associated with Customer’s account, including, if applicable, any data of Customer’s users. Any amounts added by Customer to an insufficient balance shall first be applied toward delinquent payments.
5.3 Provider may change pricing for the Services on thirty (30) days’ prior notice.
5.4 Any prepaid balance remaining in Customer’s account upon termination of this Agreement will be refunded, provided, however, that Provider shall first deduct processing fees from such amount, so that any refund will be net of processing fees.
5.5 Fees that are not disputed within within thirty (30) days after of the date on which they are charged will be conclusively deemed to be accurate. Any billing disputes must be in writing, and include a detailed statement describing the nature and amount of the disputed charge(s) and the reason(s) why a credit or refund is being requested. Customer shall cooperate fully with Provider to promptly address and attempt to resolve the disputed charge(s). Irrespective of the foregoing, Customer shall pay the full amount of the invoice, including the disputed amounts, in a timely manner and in accordance with the payment terms set forth in this Agreement.
5.6 Customer agrees to pay all taxes on the Services that Provider is required by law to collect, including transaction, local, value-added, sales, and service taxes. All fees charged by Provider are exclusive of any such taxes, duties, levies or fees. In no event will Customer be responsible for any taxes on Provider’s income. If Customer is exempt from paying taxes on the Services, Customer agrees to promptly furnish to Provider reasonable written proof of Customer’s tax exempt status.
5.7 Customer will i) maintain, and provide upon request, records, and system tools output, as reasonably necessary for Provider and its independent auditor to verify Customer’s compliance with this Agreement, and ii) promptly pay charges and liabilities determined as a result of such verification. These compliance verification obligations remain in effect during the Term and for two years thereafter.
6. CHANGES TO THE SERVICES AND ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY.
6.1 Provider reserves the right to change or discontinue the Services, including changing or removing Services features or functionality, at any time and without advance notice.
6.2 Provider may change the AUP to add or modify restrictions on use of the Services, provided that the changes are reasonable and consistent with hosting industry norms. If Provider makes a change to the AUP, Provider will publish a revised version of the AUP at gic.capitalonline.net If compliance with the revised AUP would adversely affect Customer’s use of the Services, and Customer gives Provider written notice of objection no later than thirty (30) days following the date that the revised AUP takes effect, Provider will not enforce the revision as to Customer until forty-five (45) days following the date the revision would otherwise have become effective as to Customer and Customer will continue to be subject to the prior version of the AUP. During the forty-five (45) day period, Customer may elect to terminate this Agreement and any Services on these grounds by giving written notice to Provider. Provider will not charge Customer an early termination fee for a termination on these grounds. If Customer does not elect to terminate during the forty-five (45) day period, then the revised AUP will become effective as to Customer as of the end of the forty-five (45) day period. If Customer terminates under this Section, Provider may decide to waive that AUP change as to Customer and keep the Agreement and Services in place for the remainder of the term then in effect.
7. SUSPENSION OF SERVICES. Provider may suspend, revoke or limit Customer’s or any end user’s use of the Services if Provider determines there is a material breach of Customer’s obligations, a security breach, or violation of law. Charges will continue to accrue for the Services during any suspension. If the cause of the suspension can reasonably be remedied, Provider will provide notice of the actions Customer must take to reinstate the Services. If Customer fails to take such actions within a reasonable time, Provider may terminate the Services and this Agreement.
8.1 Customer may terminate this Agreement for any reason by: (i) providing notice to Provider and (ii) closing Customer’s account for all Services for which Provider provides an account closing mechanism. Provider may terminate this Agreement for any reason by providing Customer 30 days’ advance notice. Either party may terminate this Agreement for cause if the other party is in material breach of this Agreement, provided the one who is not complying is given notice and reasonable time to comply. Failure to pay is a material breach. Upon any termination of this Agreement, Customer shall remain responsible for all fees and charges Customer has incurred through the date of termination, including fees and charges for in-process tasks completed after the date of termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, all Services charges accrued but unpaid as of the termination date and any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Provider or imposed on Provider (e.g., ordered and non-cancellable equipment, licenses, termination charges) shall become immediately due and payable.
8.2 Customer agrees and acknowledges that, effective seventy-two (72) hours after the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, Provider has the right, without liability or further obligation, to permanently erase all content and data stored by Provider.
9. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. “Confidential Information” means information disclosed by one party to the other that, due to its character, nature, or method of transmittal, a reasonable person under like circumstances would treat as confidential and proprietary, even in the absence of a "confidential" or "proprietary" designation on such information and the absence of any subsequent written confirmation or identification of such information¸ including, without limitation, Provider’s unpublished prices and other terms of service, audit and security reports, product development plans, data center designs (including non-graphic information Customer may observe on a tour of a data center), and other proprietary information or technology. Information that is independently developed by a party without reference to the other party’s Confidential Information, or that becomes available to a party other than through violation of this Agreement or applicable law, shall not be “Confidential Information” of the other party. Each party agrees not to use the other’s Confidential Information except in connection with the provision, performance or use of the Services, as applicable, the exercise of the parties’ respective legal rights under this Agreement, or as may be required by law. Each party agrees not to disclose the other’s Confidential Information to any third person except as follows: (i) to each of its service providers, contractors, agents, and representatives on a need to know basis, provided that such service providers, contractors, agents and representatives agree in writing to confidentiality measures that are at least as stringent as those stated in this Agreement; (ii) to a law enforcement or government agency if required, or if the party reasonably believes that the other’s conduct may violate applicable criminal law; (iii) as required by law; or (iv) in response to a subpoena or other compulsory legal process, provided that, if permissible to do so, each party agrees to give the other party prompt written notice prior to disclosing Confidential Information under this subsection, unless the law forbids such notice. The receiving party acknowledges that disclosure of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information could cause substantial harm to the disclosing party for which damages alone might not be a sufficient remedy and, therefore, that, upon any actual or threatened disclosure by the receiving party of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information, the disclosing party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
