You agree and acknowledge that each Agent will be identified by a unique username and password (“Login”) and that an Agent Login may only be used by one (1) individual. You will not share an Agent Login among multiple individuals. You and Your Agents are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all Login information for Your Account. Tiledesk reserves the right to periodically verify that Your use of the Tiledesk Services complies with the Agreement and the Service Plan restrictions on Our Site. Should Tiledesk discover that Your use of a Tiledesk Service is not in compliance with this Agreement or the Service Plan restrictions on Our Site, Tiledesk reserves the right to charge You, and You hereby agree to pay for, said usage in addition to other remedies available to Us.
2.8 In addition to Our rights as set forth in Sections 2 and 8.4, We reserve the right, in Our reasonable discretion, to temporarily suspend Your access to and use of a Service if We suspect or detect any Malicious Software connected to Your Account or use of a Service by You, Agents or End-Users.

Beta Services are intended for evaluation purposes and not for production use, are not supported, and may be subject to Supplemental Terms that will be presented to You. Beta Services are not considered “Services” under this Agreement; however, all restrictions, Our reservation of rights and Your obligations concerning the Service, and use of any Third Party Services shall apply equally to Your use of Beta Services. Unless otherwise stated, any Beta Services trial period will expire upon the earlier of one year from the trial start date or the date that a version of the Beta Services becomes generally available without the applicable Beta Services designation. We may discontinue Beta Services at any time in Our sole discretion and may never make them generally available. We will have no liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with a Beta Service.
3. CONFIDENTIALITY; SECURITY AND PRIVACY
3.1 Subject to the express permissions of this Agreement, each Party will protect each other’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access or disclosure in the same manner as each protects its own Confidential Information, but with no less than reasonable care. Except as otherwise expressly permitted pursuant to this Agreement, each Party may use each other’s Confidential Information solely to exercise its respective rights and perform its respective obligations under this Agreement and shall disclose such Confidential Information (a) solely to the employees and/or non-employee service providers and contractors who have a need to know such Confidential Information and who are bound by terms of confidentiality intended to prevent the misuse of such Confidential Information; (b) as necessary to comply with an order or subpoena of any administrative agency or court of competent jurisdiction; or (c) as reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law or regulation. The provisions of this Section 3.1 shall supersede any non-disclosure agreement by and between the Parties and such agreement shall have no further force or effect.
3.3 You agree that Tiledesk and the third-party service providers that are utilized by Tiledesk to assist in providing the Services to You shall have the right to access Your Account and to use, modify, reproduce, distribute, display and disclose Service Data to the extent necessary to provide or improve the Services, including, without limitation, in response to Your support requests. Any third-party service providers utilized by the Tiledesk Group will only be given access to Your Account and Service Data as is reasonably necessary to provide the Services and will be subject to (a) confidentiality obligations which are commercially reasonable and substantially consistent with the standards described in Section 3.2;
3.4 Whenever You, Your Agents or End-Users interact with Our Services, We automatically receive and record information on Our server logs from the browser or device, which may include IP address, “cookie” information, and the type of browser and/or device being used to access the Services. “Cookies” are identifiers We transfer to the browser or device of Your Agents or End-Users that allow Us to recognize Agent or End-User and their browser or device along with how our Services are being utilized. When We collect this information, We only use this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify Your Agents or End-Users personally. For example, this aggregate data can tell Us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and We can use that knowledge to improve the Services.
3.5 We receive and store any information that You knowingly provide to Us. For example, through the registration process for Our Services and/or through your Account settings, We may collect Personal Data such as your name, email address, phone number, credit card information and third-party account credentials of You and Your Agents. In addition, We may communicate with You and Your Agents. For example, We may send You and Your Agents product announcements and promotional offers or contact You and Your Agents about Your use of the Services. If You or an Agent does not want to receive communications from Us, please indicate this preference by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with the name and email address of each Agent that no longer wishes to receive these communications.
3.6 We never sell, rent, or lease Your Service Data to any third party. We do not share Your Service Data with third parties, except as permitted by Section 3.3 of this Agreement and in order to provide and support the Services. We may, however, share aggregated and anonymized information regarding Your use of the Services with third parties as described in this Section. To be clear, we would never disclose aggregated and/or anonymized information to a third party in a manner that would identify You as the source of the information or Your Agents or End-Users personally, as an individual.
6. BILLING, PLAN MODIFICATIONS AND PAYMENTS
6.1 Unless otherwise indicated on an Order Form or SOW referencing this Agreement or in the Supplemental Terms, and subject to Section 6.2, all charges associated with Your access to and use of a Service (“Subscription Charges”) are due in full upon commencement of Your Subscription Term, or, with respect to a Deployed Associated Service, at the time such Deployed Associated Service is purchased, subscribed to or otherwise deployed. If You fail to pay Your Subscription Charges or other charges indicated on any Order Form within five (5) business days of Our notice to You that payment is due or delinquent, or if You do not update payment information upon Our request, in addition to Our other remedies, We may suspend or terminate access to and use of such Service by You, Agents and End-Users.
6.3 No refunds or credits for Subscription Charges or other fees or payments will be provided to You if You elect to downgrade Your Service Plan. Downgrading Your Service Plan may cause loss of content, features, or capacity of the Service as available to You under Your Account, and Tiledesk does not accept any liability for such loss.
8. CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION
8.1 Either Party may elect to terminate Your Account and subscription to a Service as of the end of Your then current Subscription Term by providing notice, in accordance with this Agreement, on or prior to the date thirty (30) days preceding the end of such Subscription Term. Unless Your Account and subscription to a Service is so terminated, Your subscription to a Service (including any and all Deployed Associated Services) will renew for a Subscription Term equivalent in length to the then expiring Subscription Term. Unless otherwise provided for in an Order Form, the Subscription Charges applicable to Your subscription to a Service for any such subsequent Subscription Term shall be Our standard Subscription Charges for the Service Plan and Deployed Associated Services to which You have subscribed or which You have deployed, as applicable, as of the time such subsequent Subscription Term commences.

This amount will not be payable by You in the event You terminate Your subscription to a Service or cancel Your Account as a result of a material breach of this Agreement by Tiledesk, provided that You provide advance notice of such breach to Tiledesk and afford Tiledesk no less than thirty (30) days to reasonably cure such breach as provided for in Section 8.5 herein.
8.4 We reserve the right to restrict functionality, suspend or terminate the Services (or any part thereof), Your Account or Your and/or Agents’ or End-Users’ rights to access and use the Services, and remove, disable and quarantine any Service Data if We believe that You, Agents or End-Users have violated this Agreement. Unless legally prohibited from doing so, We will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact You directly via email to notify You when taking any of the foregoing actions. We shall not be liable to You, Agents, End-Users or any other third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuation of Your rights to access and use the Services. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity by You, Agents or End-Users may be referred to law enforcement authorities at Our sole discretion.

If this Agreement is terminated by Us in accordance with this section, You will pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term pursuant to all applicable Order Forms. In no event will termination relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees payable to Us for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
8.6 Upon request by You made within thirty (30) days after the effective date of termination or expiration of this Agreement, We will make Service Data available to You for export or download as provided in the Documentation. After such 30-day period, We will have no obligation to maintain or provide any Service Data, and, as provided in the Documentation, will have the right to delete or destroy all copies of Service Data in Our systems or otherwise in Our possession or control, unless prohibited by law.

10.4 Any claims or damages that You may have against Tiledesk shall only be enforceable against Tiledesk and not any other entity or its officers, directors, representatives or agents.

We shall, at Our expense, defend such IP Claim and pay damages finally awarded against You in connection therewith, including the reasonable fees and expenses of the attorneys engaged by Tiledesk for such defense, provided that (a) You promptly notify Tiledesk of the threat or notice of such IP Claim; (b) We will have the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defense attorneys, and defend and/or settle any such IP Claim; and (c) You fully cooperate with Tiledesk in connection therewith. If use of a Service by You, Agents or End-Users has become, or, in Our opinion, is likely to become, the subject of any such IP Claim, We may, at Our option and expense, (a) procure for You the right to continue using the Service(s) as set forth hereunder; (b) replace or modify a Service to make it non-infringing; or (c) if options (a) or (b) are not commercially reasonable or practicable as determined by Tiledesk, terminate Your subscription to the Service(s) and repay You, on a pro-rata basis, any Subscription Charges previously paid to Tiledesk for the corresponding unused portion of Your Subscription Term for such Service(s). We will have no liability or obligation under this Section 11.1 with respect to any IP Claim if such claim is caused in whole or in part by (i) compliance with designs, data, instructions or specifications provided by You; (ii) modification of the Service(s) by anyone other than Tiledesk; or (iii) the combination, operation or use of the Service(s) with other hardware or software where a Service would not by itself be infringing.
The provisions of this Section 11.1 state the sole, exclusive and entire liability of Tiledesk to You and constitute Your sole remedy with respect to an IP Claim brought by reason of access to or use of a Service by You, Agents or End-Users.
11.2 You will indemnify and hold Tiledesk harmless against any claim (i) arising from or related to use of a Service by You, Agents or End-Users in breach of this Agreement; or (ii) alleging that the intellectual property rights of a third party have been violated; provided (a) We promptly notify You of the threat or notice of such claim; (b) You will have the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defense attorneys, and defend and/or settle any such claim (however, You shall not settle or compromise any claim that results in liability or admission of any liability by Us without Our prior written consent); and (c) We fully cooperate with You in connection therewith.
12. ASSIGNMENT, ENTIRE AGREEMENT AND AMENDMENT
12.1 You may not, directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, assign all or any part of this Agreement or Your rights under this Agreement or delegate performance of Your duties under this Agreement without Our prior consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. We may, without Your consent, assign this Agreement to any member of the Tiledesk Group or in connection with any merger or change of control of Tiledesk or the Tiledesk Group or the sale of all or substantially all of Our assets provided that any such successor agrees to fulfill its obligations pursuant to this Agreement. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, this Agreement will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.
12.2 This Agreement, together with any Order Form(s) and Supplemental Term(s) constitute the entire agreement, and supersede any and all prior agreements between You and Tiledesk with regard to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement shall apply in lieu of the terms or conditions in any purchase order or other order documentation You or any Entity which You represent provides (all such terms or conditions being null and void), and, except as expressly stated herein, there are no other agreements, representations, warranties, or commitments which may be relied upon by either Party with respect to the subject matter hereof. There are no oral promises, conditions, representations, understandings, interpretations, or terms of any kind between the Parties, except as may otherwise be expressly provided herein.
