6. Optional Third-Party Services.
Generally. Stacksi or third parties may make available third-party products or services, including integrations and other services (“Third-Party Services”) that Customer may elect to use. Any election by Customer to use such Third-Party Services and any exchange of data between Customer and any Third-Party Service or Third-Party Service provider is solely between Customer and the applicable third-party provider. Stacksi does not warrant or provide support for Third-Party Services, whether or not they are designated by Stacksi as “recommended,” “certified,” or otherwise.
Customer Data. If Customer elects to use any Third-Party Services with the Stacksi Platform, Customer grants Stacksi permission to allow the Third-Party Service and its provider to access Customer Data as required for the interoperation of that Third-Party Service with the Stacksi Platform. Stacksi is not responsible for any disclosure, modification, or deletion of Customer Data resulting from access by such Third-Party Service or its provider. Customer is responsible for directly negotiating any limits on the use of Customer Data by the Third-Party Services directly with the Third-Party Service provider.
Interoperability. The Stacksi Platform may contain features designed to interoperate with Third-Party Services. To use such features, Customer may be required to obtain access to such Third-Party Services from their providers, and may be required to grant Stacksi access to Customer’s accounts on such Third-Party Services. Stacksi cannot guarantee the continued availability of such Stacksi Platform features, and may cease providing them without providing Customer any refund, credit, or other compensation, including if the provider of a Third-Party Service ceases to make the Third-Party Service available for interoperation with the corresponding Stacksi Platform features in a manner acceptable to Stacksi.
7. Confidentiality. Each party as Recipient shall take reasonable precautions to protect Discloser’s Confidential Information, and not to use (except as expressly permitted in this Agreement) or divulge to any third person any such Confidential Information. The foregoing shall not apply with respect to any Confidential Information after five years following the disclosure thereof (or, with respect to trade secrets, for so long as such Confidential Information constitutes a trade secret under Applicable Law), or any Confidential Information that is required to be disclosed by Applicable Law.
8. Fees and Payment.
Fees and Payment.
Customer shall pay Stacksi all fees described in all Service Orders in accordance with the terms therein (the “Fees”). Stacksi may change the Fees or applicable charges or institute new charges and Fees at the end of the initial Order Term or then-current renewal Order Term, upon 30 days’ prior notice to Customer (which may be sent by email). If Customer believes that Stacksi has billed Customer incorrectly, Customer must contact Stacksi no later than 60 days after the closing date on the first billing statement in which the error or problem appeared, in order to receive an adjustment or credit. Inquiries should be directed to Stacksi’s customer support department.
Unless otherwise specified in a Service Order, full payment is due 30 days after the date of the applicable invoice. Unpaid amounts are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum amount permitted by Applicable Law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection, and may result in immediate termination of access to the Stacksi Platform.
Taxes. Other than federal and state net income taxes imposed on Stacksi, Customer shall bear all taxes, duties, and other governmental charges relating to the Services.
9. Term and Termination.
Term. The term of this Agreement will commence on the effective date of the first Service Order between the parties and will continue until terminated in accordance with this Agreement (the “Term”).
Termination for Convenience. If there are no outstanding Service Orders, either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason upon 30 days’ prior written notice to the other. Neither party may terminate a Service Order once it has been executed, other than by mutual consent or termination of this Agreement for material breach as set forth below.
Termination for Breach or Insolvency. Either party may terminate this Agreement or a Service Order, effective upon written notice to the other party, if the other party materially breaches this Agreement or a Service Order and such breach is incapable of cure, or (if such breach capable of cure) the breaching party does not cure such breach within 30 days of receiving notice of it. Stacksi may terminate or suspend this Agreement or any part of it immediately upon written notice to Customer without a cure period if Customer breaches any of the terms of this Agreement relating to Stacksi’s Intellectual Property Rights or Stacksi’s Confidential Information. Stacksi may terminate this Agreement, effective immediately upon written notice, if Customer files, or has filed against it, a petition for voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or pursuant to any other insolvency law, makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or applies for, or consents to, the appointment of a trustee, receiver, or custodian for a substantial part of its property.
Effect of Termination. Expiration or termination of this Agreement will automatically terminate all active Service Orders, but termination of a single Service Order will not result in termination of this Agreement or any other Service Orders. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement or a Service Order all rights and licenses granted by Stacksi to Customer under this Agreement or the applicable Service Order will terminate. Either party’s termination of this Agreement is without prejudice to any other remedies it may have at law or in equity, and does not relieve either party of breaches occurring prior to the effective date of termination. Neither party will be liable to the other for damages arising solely as a result of terminating this Agreement in accordance with its terms.
Post-Termination Obligations. Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, Stacksi shall make all Customer Data then held by Stacksi available to Customer for electronic retrieval for a period of 30 days. After such period, Stacksi may, but is not obligated to, delete any stored Customer Data. If Customer terminates this Agreement for material breach, Customer shall pay in full for any terminated Service Orders up to and including the last day on which access to the Services are provided. If this Agreement expires or is terminated for any other reason: (1) Stacksi will not refund Customer any Fees paid in advance of such expiration or termination; and (2) within ten days after such expiration or termination, Customer shall pay Stacksi all remaining Fees owed under any terminated Service Orders so that Stacksi is paid the full annual amount agreed to at the commencement of such Order Term. The following sections of this Agreement will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement: 1, 2.A, 2.E, 2.G, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9.D, 9.E, and 10–13.

THE STACKSI PLATFORM, SOFTWARE, AND DOCUMENTATION ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” STACKSI DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE STACKSI PLATFORM, SOFTWARE, DOCUMENTATION, OR SERVICES WILL SATISFY CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS, ARE WITHOUT DEFECT OR ERROR, OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of warranties, so that limitation or exclusion may not apply to Customer.
Beta Features. Stacksi may make Beta Features available to Customer. Stacksi makes no representations that any Beta Features will be made generally available and Stacksi may discontinue or modify any Beta Feature without notice. Beta Features are provided “AS IS,” and Customer’s use of a Beta Feature is at Customer’s sole risk.
11. Customer Indemnification.
Defense. Customer shall defend Stacksi from any actual or threatened third-party claim, proceeding, or suit (each, a “Claim”) arising out of or based on Customer’s breach of Section 10 (Warranties and Disclaimer) if: (1) Stacksi gives Customer prompt written notice of the Claim; (2) Stacksi grants Customer full and complete control over the defense and settlement of the Claim; (3) Stacksi provides assistance in connection with the defense and settlement of the Claim as Customer may reasonably request; and (4) Stacksi complies with any settlement or court order made in connection with the Claim. Customer shall not defend or settle any Claim without Stacksi’s prior written consent. Stacksi may participate in the defense of the Claim at its own expense and with counsel of its own choosing, but Customer will have sole control over the defense of the Claim.
Indemnification. Customer shall indemnify Stacksi from and pay: (1) all damages, costs, and attorneys’ fees finally awarded against Stacksi in any Claim; (2) all out-of-pocket costs (including attorneys’ fees) reasonably incurred by Stacksi in connection with the defense of a Claim (other than attorneys’ fees and costs incurred without Customer’s consent after Customer has accepted defense of the Claim); and (3) all amounts that Customer agrees to pay to any third party to settle any Claim.
12. Limitations of Liability.
EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES. STACKSI WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR LOSS OF BUSINESS, EVEN IF STACKSI IS APPRISED OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES OCCURRING.
DAMAGES CAP. STACKSI’S TOTAL LIABILITY OF ALL KINDS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING WARRANTY CLAIMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORUM AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY ACTION OR CLAIM IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER TO STACKSI DURING THE 12 MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE CLAIM (DETERMINED AS OF THE DATE OF ANY FINAL JUDGMENT IN AN ACTION).
BASIS OF THE BARGAIN. EACH PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS OF THIS AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES. THIS ALLOCATION IS REFLECTED IN THE PRICING OFFERED BY STACKSI TO CUSTOMER AND IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 12 (LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY) WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY IN THIS AGREEMENT.
Applicability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of damages. This Section 12 (Limitations of Liability) will apply to Customer solely to the extent permitted by Applicable Law.
Compliance with Applicable Law. Customer shall comply with all Applicable Law in connection with Customer’s activities under this Agreement, including applicable export laws. It is Customer’s responsibility to obtain any required licenses to export and re-export the Software. The Software, including technical data, is subject to U.S. export control laws, including the U.S. Export Administration Act and its associated regulations, and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. Customer shall not acquire for, ship, transfer, or re-export the Software, directly or indirectly, to proscribed or embargoed countries or their nationals or persons on the Table of Denial Orders, the Entity List, or the List of Specifically Designated Nationals, unless specifically authorized by the U.S. Government for those purposes.
Publicity. Stacksi may publicly list Customer as a customer of Stacksi and use Customer’s trademark, trade name, and logo for marketing or promotional purposes and in other communications with existing or potential Stacksi customers, resellers, or investors.
Governing Law. This Agreement is governed by California law without reference to its conflict of laws principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to this Agreement. All claims arising under this Agreement will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Santa Clara County, San Francisco. The parties submit to the jurisdiction in those courts.
Injunctive Relief. If either party breaches Sections 5 (Ownership) or 7 (Confidentiality), the other party may suffer irreparable harm, and monetary damages may be inadequate to compensate the non-breaching party. Accordingly, either party may, in addition to any other remedies available to it at law or in equity, seek injunctive or other equitable relief in response to any such breach.
Further Assurances. Each party shall execute and deliver any documents or instruments, and take any further actions that are reasonably required, to provide the other party the full benefits and rights described in this Agreement.
Attorneys’ Fees. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees.
Assignment. Customer may not assign this Agreement or delegate its performance without Stacksi’s prior written consent, and any attempt to do so is void. Stacksi may assign this Agreement or delegate its performance without Customer’s consent. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the parties’ permitted successors and assigns.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement or portion of a provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of this Agreement will remain in effect.
No Waiver. Neither party will be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under this Agreement.
Amendment. This Agreement may only be amended in a writing signed by both parties and stating that it is amending this Agreement.
U.S. Government Restricted Rights. The Software is “commercial computer software,” as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101. Accordingly, if Customer is the U.S. Government or any contractor therefor, Customer will receive only those rights in the Stacksi Platform, Software, and Documentation as are granted to all other end users under license, in accordance with: (1) 48 C.F.R. §227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. §227.7204, with respect to the Department of Defense and their contractors; or (2) 48 C.F.R. §12.212, with respect to all other U.S. Government licensees and their contractors.
Nature of Rights. The licenses granted under this Agreement are rights in “intellectual property” within the scope of Section 101 (or its successors) of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Code”). Each party as licensee shall have and may fully exercise all rights available to a licensee under the Code, including under Section 365(n) or its successors.
Relationship. The parties are independent contractors of each other. Each party is responsible for instructing and managing its employees and personnel. This Agreement does not create any agency, partnership, or joint venture relationship between the parties.
No Third-Party Beneficiaries. There are no third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
Notices. All notices under this Agreement must be in writing, and will be considered given: (1) upon delivery, if delivered personally or by internationally-recognized courier service; or (2) three business days after being sent, if delivered by U.S. registered or certified mail (return receipt requested).
Force Majeure. Stacksi will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform as required by this Agreement as a result of any cause or condition beyond Stacksi’s reasonable control, so long as Stacksi uses reasonable efforts to avoid or remove those causes of delay or non-performance.
Interpretation. If Stacksi provides a translation of the English language version of this Agreement, the translation is provided solely for convenience, and the English version will prevail. Any heading, caption, or section title contained in this Agreement is for convenience only, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision. Any use of the term “including” or variations thereof in this Agreement shall be construed as if followed by the phrase “without limitation.”
