7.1 Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure.

7.2 Protection of Confidential Information. As between the parties, each party retains all ownership rights, title and interest, including intellectual property rights, in and to its Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care). Receiving Party will: (a) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement; and (b) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who are informed of the confidentiality provisions hereunder.
7.3 Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party's cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information.
7.4 Non-Solicit. During the course of this Agreement as well as during a period of one year following the termination of this Agreement, Customer shall not in any way, directly or indirectly, approach or entice away any employees of SitePro to terminate their employment agreement with SitePro or to enter into an agreement with Customer.

8.2 Services. SitePro warrants that during an applicable subscription term the Services will operate in accordance with the applicable Documentation in all material respects. THE FOREGOING WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY, AND SITEPRO STRICTLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WITH RESPECT TO ANY NON-SITEPRO APPLICATIONS.

9.1 Indemnification by SitePro. SitePro will defend Customer against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Customer by a third party alleging that any Service infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights (an “Infringement Claim”), and will indemnify Customer from any damages, reasonable attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Customer as a result of, or for amounts paid by Customer under a settlement approved by SitePro in writing of an Infringement Claim, provided that Customer (a) promptly gives SitePro written notice of the Infringement Claim, (b) gives SitePro sole control of the defense and settlement of the Infringement Claim (except that SitePro may not settle any Infringement Claim unless it unconditionally releases Customer of all liability), and (c) gives SitePro all reasonable assistance, at SitePro’s expense, in connection with the defense of the Infringement Claim. If SitePro receives information about an infringement or misappropriation claim related to the Services, SitePro may in its discretion and at no cost to Customer (i) modify the Services so that they are no longer claimed to infringe or misappropriate, (ii) obtain a license for Customer’s continued use of that Service in accordance with this Agreement, or (iii) terminate Customer’s subscriptions for that Service upon 30 days written notice and refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of the terminated subscriptions. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if (1) the allegation does not state with specificity that the Services are the basis of the Infringement Claim; (2) an Infringement Claim arises from the use or combination of the Services or any part thereof with software, hardware, data, or processes not provided by SitePro, if the Services or use thereof would not infringe without such combination; (3) an Infringement Claim arises from Services under an Order for which there is no charge; or (4) an Infringement Claim arises from a non-SitePro application or Customer’s breach of this Agreement.
9.2 Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend SitePro against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against SitePro by a third party that: (a) alleges that (i) any Customer Data or Customer’s use of Customer Data with the Services, (ii) a non-SitePro application provided by Customer, or (iii) the combination of a non-SitePro application provided by Customer and used with the Services, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights; or (b) arises from Customer’s use of the Services in an unlawful manner or in violation of the Agreement (each a “Claim Against SitePro”), and will indemnify SitePro from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against SitePro as a result of, or for any amounts paid by SitePro under a settlement approved by Customer in writing of, a Claim Against SitePro, provided that SitePro (1) promptly gives Customer written notice of the Claim Against SitePro, (2) gives Customer sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against SitePro (except that Customer may not settle any Claim Against SitePro unless it unconditionally releases SitePro of all liability), and (3) gives Customer all reasonable assistance, at Customer’s expense, in the defense of the Claim Against SitePro. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if a Claim Against SitePro arises from SitePro’s breach of this Agreement.

11. TERM AND TERMINATION
11.1 Term of Agreement. This Agreement commences on the date Customer first accepts it and continues until all subscriptions hereunder have expired or have been terminated.
11.2 Term of Subscription(s). The term of each subscription shall be as specified in the applicable Order. Except as otherwise specified in an Order, subscriptions will automatically renew for additional periods equal to the expiring subscription term or one year (whichever is longer), unless either party gives the other written notice of non-renewal (email acceptable) at least 30 days before the end of the relevant subscription term. Except as expressly provided in the applicable Order, renewal of promotional or one-time priced subscriptions will be at SitePro’s applicable list price in effect at the time of the applicable renewal.

11.4 Payment upon Termination. If this Agreement is terminated by SitePro in accordance with Section 11.3, Customer will pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Orders (the “Termination Fee”). Any Termination Fee payable under this provision shall be payable as liquidated damages to compensate SitePro for damages SitePro will suffer if this Agreement is terminated, which damages cannot be determined with reasonable certainty. It is specifically agreed that the Termination Fee represents liquidated damages and not a penalty. In no event will termination relieve Customer of its obligation to pay any fees payable to SitePro for the period prior to the effective date of the termination. If the Termination Fee is 30 days or more overdue and is not cured within ten (10) days after written notice by SitePro, SitePro may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, suspend Services or apply a lien to the applicable assets until such amounts are paid in full.
