1. USE OF THE SERVICES.
1.1 Services. Sprinklr, Inc. (“Sprinklr”) grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement), non-sublicensable, worldwide, limited license to use the then-current version of the Services, as defined and licensed in the Order Form, solely for its own business operations during the Subscription Term, subject to any limitations set forth in the Order Form. For the purposes of this Agreement, the rights granted in this Section 1.1 are collectively referred to as the “License Grant.”
1.2 Restrictions. Customer shall not, and shall not permit any third party to (a) make any Service available to, or use any Service or for the benefit of, anyone other than Customer or Users, except as permitted herein or in an Order Form, (b) sell, resell, license, sublicense, distribute, rent, lease, the Services or any derivative works based on the Services except as authorized herein, (c) use the Services 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) use the Services to transmit viruses, spam, or malicious code, (e) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of any Services or materials contained therein, (f) attempt to gain unauthorized access to any Services or their related systems or networks, (g) reverse engineer the Services (to the extent such restriction is permitted by law), or (h) access the Services in order to (i) build a competitive product or service, or (ii) copy any features, functions or graphics of the Services.
1.3 Reservation of Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, Sprinklr reserves all rights, title, and interest in and to the Services, including all related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to Customer hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein.
1.4 Customer Materials. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Customer Materials” means any information or materials owned, controlled, or licensed by Customer and provided to Sprinklr in connection with the Services. Customer hereby grants to Sprinklr a non-exclusive, transferrable, worldwide, royalty-free right and license to reproduce, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, display, and otherwise use the Customer Materials for the Term of this Agreement for the sole purpose of providing Services under this Agreement. Customer reserves all rights to the Customer Materials that are not expressly granted in this Agreement.
1.5 User Content. Information and materials submitted by Users in connection with the Services are governed by the Terms of Service in effect when the User registers to use the Community.
1.6 Customer’s Responsibilities. As between Customer and Sprinklr, Customer is responsible for moderating the Communities and for the acts and omissions of the Users of the Communities, including, but not limited to, questions, problems, ideas, and feedback, along with replies, comments and indications of agreement or support (“likes”) on such posts, made in the Community “User Content”. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer shall (a) be responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of Customer Materials and of the means by which they was acquired or developed, (b) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Services, and notify Sprinklr promptly of any such unauthorized access or use, and (c) use the Services only in accordance with applicable laws and government regulations.
1.7 Compliance With Laws. Sprinklr may, in its discretion, access, store, and disclose information stored or transmitted on or through the Communities to comply with applicable laws and lawful governmental requests and to protect the integrity of Sprinklr’s operations. Sprinklr reserves the right to report any activity that it suspects violates any law, rule or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators or other appropriate third parties.
1.8 Feedback. Customer grants Sprinklr a royalty-free, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual license to use and incorporate into the Services any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations, or other feedback provided by Customer or its Users relating to the Services.
2. FEES, PAYMENT AND TAXES.
2.1 Fees. Customer shall pay all fees as specified in Order Forms hereunder (“Fees”). Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) payments shall be due within 30 days of the date of invoice, (ii) Fees are based on services purchased and not actual usage, (iii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and Fees paid are non-refundable, and (iv) any quantities related to any Services purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant Subscription Term stated on the Order Form.
2.2 Invoicing and Payment. Customer will provide Sprinklr with documentation to demonstrate its authorization to pay Fees due to Sprinklr hereunder, such as a valid purchase order or alternative document reasonably acceptable to Sprinklr. In certain circumstances, Sprinklr may require Customer to pay by credit card, in which case Customer will provide valid and updated credit card information to Sprinklr and authorizes Sprinklr to charge such credit card for all Services listed in the Order Form for the initial Subscription Term and any renewal Subscription Term(s). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, invoiced charges are due within 30 days of the invoice date. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Sprinklr and notifying Sprinklr of any changes to such information.
2.3 If Sprinklr determines that Customer has exceeded any metrics set forth in the Order Form for any Community, (a) Sprinklr will notify Customer of such excess usage, (b) Sprinklr will invoice Customer incremental annual Service Fees relating to such excess usage, retroactive to the date of first such excess usage, (c) Customer will pay such invoice within thirty (30) days of receipt. If the Order Form does not state pricing for any such excess usage, the parties will negotiate such additional Service Fees in good faith.
2.4 Overdue Fees. If any Fees are not paid by Customer by the due date, then Sprinklr may, at its discretion and in addition to any other remedies available, charge Customer late payment fees equal to 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. Additionally, in the event any Fees or expenses are more than thirty (30) days overdue, Sprinklr may (i) suspend its performance of the Services, and (ii) require full payment before Sprinklr resumes performance.
2.5 Customer is solely responsible for any and all taxes, levies, charges and fees incurred or that may be payable to any taxing authority in connection with the transactions hereunder, other than any income tax incurred by Sprinklr. All fees stated herein are net of any applicable taxes. If Customer is legally required to withhold tax from its payment of Fees to Sprinklr, Customer agrees to gross up all Fees that are subject to such withholding tax, such that the net payment received by Sprinklr is the full originally stated amount of such Fees.
The parties will cooperate in the development and distribution of a press release announcing the launch of the Communities. Notwithstanding any confidentiality provisions of this Agreement, Customer grants Sprinklr the right, during the Term of this Agreement, to use the name and logo of Customer to identify Customer as an existing customer and the right, after the Term of this Agreement, to identify Customer as a past Customer of Sprinklr, in Sprinklr’s public relations and marketing efforts, including Sprinklr’s Web sites, press releases, media kits and blog posts.
4.1 Definition of Confidential Information. As used herein, “Confidential Information” means all confidential 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 shall include business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party. However, Confidential Information shall 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 the Receiving Party.
4.3 Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided that the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such 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 such Confidential Information.
