Provision of Service.

The number of users authorized to access the Service at any given time may not exceed the number of Designated User seats specified in the applicable Quote. Subscriber will be solely responsible for limiting access to and usage of the Service to Designated Users and for ensuring that its Designated Users use the Service only as authorized hereunder and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Subscriber is solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the accounts and related passwords of Subscriber’s Designated Users and all use of such accounts.

Subscriber hereby agrees that the act or omission of a current or former Designated User shall be deemed the same as if performed by Subscriber. Subscriber will be responsible for providing the computer hardware, web browser (including installing any required browser extension), or mobile devices necessary to interface with the Service.
2.2 Subscriber Data.

Without limitation of the foregoing and for the avoidance of doubt, Subscriber shall ensure that Subscriber Data does not contain any Personal Information. Subscriber represents, warrants, and covenants that: (i) it has (and will have) Processed, collected, and disclosed all Subscriber Data in compliance with applicable law and provided any notice and obtained all consents and rights required by applicable law to enable Applied BioMath to lawfully Process Subscriber Data as permitted by this Agreement; (ii) it has (and will continue to have) full right and authority to make the Subscriber Data available to Applied BioMath under this Agreement; and (iii) Applied BioMath's Processing of the Subscriber Data in accordance with this Agreement or Subscriber's instructions does and will not infringe upon or violate any applicable law or any rights of any third party.
3. USE OF SERVICES.
3.1 Subscriptions. Access to the Service is purchased as a subscription and is limited to the number of Designated Users and Subscriber’s physical site listed in the applicable Quote.
3.2 Credentials. A Subscriber Admin’s or Designated User’s password may not be shared with any individual other than such specified Subscriber Admin or Designated User (as applicable). A Subscriber Admin identification may be permanently reassigned by Subscriber to a new Designated User replacing one who no longer requires ongoing use of the Service on Subscriber’s behalf. Subscriber Admins and Designated Users may include employees, consultants, contractors, and agents of Subscriber, in each case who are under the control of Subscriber, provided that no Subscriber Admin or Designated User may, under any circumstances, be a third party that engages in the provisioning of mathematical, computational and/or PK/PD modeling services without the prior written consent of Applied BioMath in each instance.
3.3 Subscriber Responsibilities. Subscriber will (a) be responsible for Subscriber Admins’ and Designated Users’ compliance with this Agreement, (b) use best efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Service,(c) notify Applied BioMath within twenty-four (24) hours of any known or suspected unauthorized access or use of the Service or any other known or suspected breach of security relating to the data, information or services provided therein and (d) use the Service only in accordance with the Documentation and applicable laws and government regulations.
3.4 Usage Restrictions. Subscriber will not (a) make the Service available to, or use the Service for the benefit of, anyone other than Subscriber, (b) sell, resell, license, sublicense, distribute, rent or lease the Service, or include the Service in a service bureau or outsourcing offering, (c) use the Service to store or transmit infringing, libelous, or otherwise unlawful or tortious material, or to store or transmit material in violation of third-party privacy rights, (d) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or third-party data contained therein, (e) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks, (f) permit direct or indirect access to or use of the Service in a way that circumvents a contractual usage limit, (g) copy the Service or any part, feature, function or user interface thereof, (h) frame or mirror any part of the Service, other than framing on Subscriber's own intranets or otherwise for its own internal business purposes or as permitted in the Documentation, (i) access the Service in order to build a competitive (internal or external) product or service, or (j) reverse engineer the Service (to the extent such restriction is permitted by law). In connection with this Agreement, Subscriber shall comply with all applicable laws.

For as long as the Subscription Term remains in effect, Subscriber shall have unlimited telephone and e-mail correspondence with Applied BioMath’s Support Engineer (SE) during Applied BioMath’s normal business hours, 9:00am-5:00pm EST, Monday through Friday, excluding federal, state and Applied BioMath holidays. SE may respond to Subscriber’s emails and phone calls within 1-2 business days as defined above. Support Engineer and Subscriber Admin will work together to address technical issues. This support is for technical software support for the application itself and not for scientific support or questions.
4. FEES AND PAYMENT.
4.1 Subscription Fee Payment Terms. The subscription fees for Subscription Term will be invoiced upon successful implementation with Subscriber. The invoice shall be paid within 30 days of receipt of invoice. Except as otherwise expressly specified in this Agreement, payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable and quantities (including the number of Designated User seats) purchased cannot be decreased during the Subscription Term.
4.2 Disputes; Overdue Charges. Subscriber may withhold payment on the disputed portion of invoices until resolved, provided that Subscriber (i) makes the dispute in good faith; (ii) pays all undisputed amounts in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; and (iii) provides to Applied BioMath in writing, within seven (7) calendar days of receipt of the applicable invoice, a description of the disputed amounts. If Subscriber does not provide such notice within such 7-day period, all fees under such invoice shall be deemed undisputed. The parties shall negotiate in a timely, good faith manner to resolve any billing disputes or queries. If any invoiced amount is not received by Applied BioMath by the due date, then without limiting Applied BioMath’s rights or remedies, those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower.
4.3 Suspension of Service. If any charge owing by Subscriber is overdue, Applied BioMath may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, suspend the Service until such amounts are paid in full.
4.4 Taxes. Applied BioMath's fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). Subscriber is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases hereunder. If Applied BioMath has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Subscriber is responsible under this section, Applied BioMath will invoice Subscriber and Subscriber will pay that amount unless Subscriber provides Applied BioMath with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, Applied BioMath is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.
4.5 Future Functionality. Subscriber agrees that its purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Applied BioMath regarding future functionality or features.
5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS AND LICENSES.
5.1 Reservation of Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, Applied BioMath and its licensors reserve all of their right, title, and interest in and to the Service, including (a) its programming architecture and platform, (b) any improvements, enhancements, modifications or features for the Service or platform developed during the term of this agreement, and (c) all intellectual property rights in the foregoing. No rights are granted to Subscriber hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein.
5.2 License by Subscriber to Host Subscriber Data. Subscriber hereby grants to Applied BioMath and its Affiliates a worldwide, limited-term license to Process, host, copy, transmit, and display Subscriber Data, and to permit third party services providers working on Applied BioMath’s behalf to do the same, as necessary for Applied BioMath to provide the Service in accordance with this Agreement. Subject to the limited licenses granted herein, Applied BioMath acquires no right, title or interest from Subscriber or its licensors under this Agreement in or to any Subscriber Data. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Applied BioMath will have the right to utilize data capture, syndication, and analysis tools, and other similar tools, to extract, compile, synthesize, and analyze any non-personally identifiable data or information resulting from Subscriber’s use of the Services (“Blind Data”). To the extent that any Blind Data is collected by Applied BioMath, such Blind Data will be solely owned by Applied BioMath and may be used by Applied BioMath for any lawful business purpose without a duty of accounting to Subscriber, provided that the Blind Data is used only in an aggregated form, without specifically identifying the source of the Blind Data.
5.3 License by Subscriber to Use Feedback. Subscriber hereby grants to Applied BioMath and its Affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid up license to use and incorporate into the Service any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by Subscriber or Subscriber Admins relating to the operation of the Service.
5.4 Federal Government End Use Provisions. Applied BioMath provides the Service, including related software and technology, for ultimate federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: Government technical data and software rights related to the Service include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement. This customary commercial license is provided in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Software) and, for Department of Defense transactions, DFAR 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) and DFAR 227.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not granted under these terms, it must negotiate with Applied BioMath to determine if there are acceptable terms for granting those rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically granting those rights must be included in any applicable agreement.
6.1 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. Confidential Information of Subscriber includes Subscriber Data; Confidential Information of Applied BioMath includes the Service, business terms and conditions, pricing, and Documentation; and Confidential Information of each party includes the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including pricing and other terms described on the applicable Quote), as well as business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party. However, Confidential Information does not include any information that (a) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (b) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (c) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (d) was independently developed by personnel of the Receiving Party who have not had access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
6.2 Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will (a) use the same degree of care to protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information (but not less than reasonable care), (b) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and (c) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its Affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those herein. Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement to any third party other than its Affiliates, legal counsel and accountants without the other party’s prior written consent, provided that a party that makes any such disclosure to its Affiliate, legal counsel or accountants will remain responsible for such Affiliate’s, legal counsel’s or accountant’s compliance with this “Confidentiality” section. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, either party may disclose to potential acquirers, potential and existing lenders, and/or potential and existing investors the existence, terms and subject matter of this Agreement (including any Quote hereunder), provided that such third parties are advised by such party of the confidentiality requirements of this Agreement and are bound by an obligation of confidentiality to such party that serves to protect such information on terms no less restrictive than those contained in this Agreement.
6.3 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.
6.4 Return of Confidential Information. Upon request of the Disclosing Party, but at the latest upon completion or earlier termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will promptly return to the Disclosing Party or destroy (and upon the Disclosing Party’s written request, provide executive officer certification of such destruction) all written or tangible Confidential Information, as well as all written or tangible material which incorporates any Confidential Information, of the Disclosing Party, provided however, that the Receiving Party may keep one copy for archival and audit purposes as well as copies made as part of the Receiving Party’s ordinary course of business operations regarding the backing up of its electronic systems. All such copies will be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
6.5 Remedies. The parties expressly acknowledge and agree that any breach or threatened breach of this Section 6 by the Receiving Party may cause immediate and irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party that may not be adequately compensated by damages. Each party therefore agrees that in the event of such breach or threatened breach of this Section 6 by the Receiving Party, and in addition to any remedies available at law, the Disclosing Party shall have the right to seek equitable and injunctive relief, without the need to post bond, with respect to such a breach or threatened breach.
7.1 Indemnification by Applied BioMath. Applied BioMath will defend Subscriber against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Subscriber by a third party alleging that Subscriber’s use of the SaaS Offering in accordance with this Agreement infringes or misappropriates such third party’s copyright, trademark or trade secret rights (a “Claim Against Subscriber”), and will indemnify Subscriber from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Subscriber as a result of, or for amounts paid by Subscriber under a court-approved settlement of, a Claim Against Subscriber, provided Subscriber (a) promptly gives Applied BioMath written notice of the Claim Against Subscriber, (b) gives Applied BioMath sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Subscriber (except that Applied BioMath may not settle any Claim Against Subscriber unless it unconditionally releases Subscriber of all liability), and (c) gives Applied BioMath all reasonable assistance, at Applied BioMath’s expense. If, in Applied BioMath’s opinion, an infringement or misappropriation claim related to the Service becomes likely, Applied BioMath may in its discretion and at no cost to Subscriber (i) modify the Service so that it no longer infringes or misappropriates, (ii) obtain a license for Subscriber’s continued use of the Service in accordance with this Agreement, or (iii) terminate Subscriber’s access to the Service upon 10 days’ written notice and refund Subscriber any fees that Subscriber prepaid for access to the Service for the period following the effective date of termination. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply to the extent a Claim Against Subscriber arises from Subscriber’s breach of this Agreement.
7.2 Exclusive Remedy. This “Indemnification” section states Applied BioMath’s sole liability to, and Subscriber’s exclusive remedy against, Applied BioMath for any type of claim described in this section.
