Testfuse further warrants and undertakes that: (a) it has and will maintain all necessary licenses, consents, and permission necessary for the performance of its obligations under the Agreement; and (b) it will cooperate with Customer in all matters relating to the Services. You will provide prompt written notice of any non-conformity. As Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and Testfuse's entire liability for any breach of our warranties, Testfuse will at our sole discretion either v(a) use reasonable efforts to fix, provide a workaround, or otherwise correct the defect or, if Testfuse is unable to do so, (b) refund the Fees paid to for such allegedly defective Services for the period commencing from the receipt of your default notice for the remainder of the time period during which the material failure affected the Services. 10.6. Except for the warranties expressly provided by us in Sections 10.1 and 10.5, Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Services are provided “as is” with all faults and without warranty of any kind, and Testfuse hereby disclaims all warranties and conditions with respect to the Services, either express, implied or statutory, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties and/or conditions of merchantability, of satisfactory quality, of fitness for a particular purpose, or accuracy. ## **11.

We reserve the right to either (a) alter the Services to make them non-infringing, or (b) terminate the infringing Services and refund you any Fees, in the event of an Infringement Claim. 11.2. Any Infringement Claim resulting from or arising out of (a) your use of the Services in violation of the Agreement; (b) the combination of the Services with other applications, products, or services where the Services would not by themselves be infringing; or (c) Beta Products and Free Plan Products do not give rise to any liability or obligation on our part under Section 11.1. 11.3. Customer will defend, indemnify and hold Testfuse harmless against all damages, fines, penalties, costs, expenses, taxes, and other liabilities (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred or awarded against Testfuse, our Affiliates, officers, directors and personnel in connection with any claim by an unaffiliated third party alleging or arising out of the (a) breach of your obligations under the Agreement; (b) failure to obtain any appropriate license or other permissions, regulatory certifications, or approvals associated with technology or data provided by Customer including Customer Data; (c) failure to comply with your obligations in violation of any applicable law, including data privacy laws; (d) infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property rights of third parties; and (e) breach of confidentiality. 11.4.

Limitation of Liability** 12.1. To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, each Party’s total accumulated liability to the other or to any third party for any direct loss, damages, costs or expenses whether in strict liability, negligence, contract or otherwise relating to this Agreement, shall be limited to the aggregate fees paid or payable by Customer to Testfuse during the twelve-month period prior to the occurrence of the initial event giving rise to a claim. 12.2. Neither Party shall be liable to the other for any consequential damage and indirect damage, including but not limited to loss, lost sales or lost profits, consequential, incidental, special, punitive, and/or contingent damages whatsoever, (whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability, warranty or otherwise), even if such party knew or should have known of the possibility of such damages. 12.3. Testfuse shall not be liable for Beta Products and Free Plan Products nor for damage, destruction or loss of data or documents (including Customer Data) resulting from the use of the Services. 12.4.

Confidentiality** 13.1. In connection with this Agreement, each Party may have access to or be exposed to information of the other Party that is not generally known to the public, such as software, product plans, pricing, marketing and sales information, customer lists, “know-how,” or trade secrets, which may be designated as confidential or which, under the circumstances surrounding disclosure, ought to be treated as confidential, including Customer Data (collectively, “**Confidential Information**”). 13.2. Confidential Information may not be shared with third parties unless such disclosure is to the receiving Party’s personnel, including employees, agents, and authorized subcontractors, on a “need-to-know” basis in connection with this Agreement, so long as such personnel have agreed in writing to treat such Confidential Information under terms at least as restrictive as those herein. Each Party agrees to take the necessary precautions to maintain the confidentiality of the other Party’s Confidential Information by using at least the same degree of care as such Party employs with respect to its own Confidential Information of a similar nature, but in no case less than a reasonable standard of care to maintain confidentiality. 13.3. The foregoing shall not apply to information that: (a) was known by the receiving party prior to its receipt from the disclosing party or is or becomes public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; or (b) is rightfully received by the receiving party from a third party without a duty of confidentiality. If a receiving party is required by a court or government agency to disclose Confidential Information, the receiving party shall provide reasonable advance notice to the disclosing party before making such disclosure to enable the disclosing party to see an appropriate protective order or other such remedy. ## **14. Term and termination** 14.1. The Agreement including these Terms commence on the date when accepted or on the date as indicated in the Order Form and will continue until all Order Forms or Services used by Customer on the Website entered into under these Terms have expired or been terminated. 14.2. Your initial subscription duration is specified when the Services are activated through the Website or in the applicable Order Form (“**Initial Term**”). Unless otherwise provided on the Website or in the applicable Order Form, your Subscription will automatically renew for additional successive periods of equal duration to the Initial Term (each, a “**Renewal Term**”, and together with the Initial Term, the “**Term**”) unless canceled by you or Testfuse. If you do not agree to the renewal, you are entitled to terminate the renewal of the Agreement either through the Website or by contacting the contact help center up to the last day of the Term. Your continued use of the Service constitutes your acceptance and agreement to the Renewal Term. 14.3. The applicable fee for any Renewal Term will be determined using the then-current list price applicable on the Website for such renewed Services unless a different renewal pricing is specified in the Order Form. 14.4. Either Party may terminate the Agreement and any Order Form (in whole or in part) by providing the other Party with not less than ten (10) days’ prior written notice in the event the other Party materially breaches any provision of this Agreement. If the breaching Party fails to cure the material breach within a ten (10) day period following the notice of default, the non-breaching Party may terminate this Agreement effective at the end of the ten (10) day period, notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement. Regarding a material breach of Customer, Testfuse may, in addition to termination, suspend the provision of certain Services, close your accounts, and/or prohibit Customer from creating any new accounts. 14.5. In no event will termination of the Agreement or Order Form relieve Customer of any payment obligation of the Fees payable prior to the effective date of termination. 14.6. Either Party may terminate this Agreement by written notice with immediate effect in the event the other Party becomes insolvent, or generally unable to pay its debts as they become due or makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors or seeks relief under any bankruptcy, insolvency or liquidation proceedings. 14.7. In the event of any expiration or termination of the Agreement: (a) Testfuse will invoice Customer for any accrued but unbilled amounts, and Customer shall promptly pay any then outstanding and unpaid amounts including any accrued but unbilled amounts owed under the Agreement; (b) Customer shall immediately cease all use of the Services and return or purge any and all components thereof, including returning or destroying or causing to be destroyed any and all copies of the Documentation, notes and other materials comprising or regarding the Services and any Testfuse Data; and (c) Testfuse will suspend access to the Services and Customer shall no longer have access to Testfuse's platform including its historic assessments. 14.8. The following sections and paragraphs shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement under Section 14 (Term and Termination): Section 8 (Fees and Payment Terms), Section 9 (Intellectual Property and Data), Section 13 (Confidentiality); Section 10.5 (Disclaimer), Section 11 (Indemnification), Section 12 (Limitation of Liability), Section 16 (General) as well as the Data Processing Agreement. ## **15. Amendments** 15.1. Testfuse is entitled to amend these Terms from time to time. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any material changes by posting an announcement on the Website or by email. To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, the new Terms will take immediate effect, and your continued use of the Services following our posting or notice of the changes will constitute your acceptance of the updated Terms. 15.2. If we are required by applicable law to give additional notice, changes will automatically take effect regarding your use of the relevant Services upon the expiry of such notice period (unless you terminate during that period) or upon your earlier acceptance of such changes. If you have a right under applicable law to terminate this Agreement upon receipt of such notice, you will not be charged a fee for early termination where you exercise that right under applicable law, but any fees previously paid by you are non-refundable and any fees owing continue to remain due and payable. ## **16. Miscellaneous** 16.1. **Compliance with Law Assurances.** Both Parties warrant to comply with all applicable anti-corruption, anti-money laundering, sanctions, export controls, and other international trade laws, regulations, and governmental orders of the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, the United Nations, or any other relevant governmental authority, including obtaining all necessary licenses and/or government approvals. Parties will promptly notify each other in writing of any actual or potential violation of such applicable laws and regulations in connection with the use of the Services and Parties shall take all appropriate actions to remedy or resolve such violations, including any actions requested by the other Party. 16.2. **No Class Actions.** To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, neither Customer nor Testfuse shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against other customers or pursue any claim as a representative of a class action or in a private attorney general capacity. 16.3. **US Government Terms.** The Services, including any related software and technology, are provided solely in accordance with these Terms for United States government end use.

All other use is prohibited and no other rights other than those provided in these Terms are conferred. 16.4. **Independent Contractors.** The Parties are independent contractors. No provision of this Agreement will or shall be deemed to create an association, trust, partnership, joint venture or other entity or similar legal relationship between Testfuse and Customer, or impose a trust, partnership or fiduciary duty, obligation, or liability on or with respect to such entities. Neither Party will have any rights, power, or authority to act or create an obligation, express or implied, on behalf of another party except as specified in the Agreement. 16.5. **Force Majeure.** Neither Party shall be liable to the other for any failure to perform any of its obligations (except payment obligations) under the Agreement during any period in which such performance is delayed by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, such as fire, flood, war, embargo, strike, riot, terrorism, epidemic or pandemic, or the intervention of any governmental authority (a “Force Majeure”). In such event, however, the delayed Party must promptly provide the other Party with written notice of the Force Majeure. The delayed Party’s time for performance will be excused for the duration of the Force Majeure, but if the Force Majeure event lasts longer than 90 days, then the other Party may immediately terminate, without any liability, in whole or in part, the Agreement by giving written notice to the delayed Party. 16.6. **Transferability and subcontracting.** Neither all nor any part of Customer’s rights or obligations under this Agreement are assignable or transferable by Customer, whether directly or indirectly, without the prior written consent of Testfuse, and any attempt to do so shall be void, except in case of merger, acquisition or sale of majority of assets. Testfuse has the right to freely assign all or part of its rights and obligations under the Agreement or to make use of the services of third parties by subcontracting. Subject to the foregoing, the Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. 16.7. **Entire Agreement.** The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior oral and written understandings, communications, or agreements. General terms and conditions of Customer are not applicable and expressly excluded. 16.8. **Severability.** If any provision of the Agreement should be found to be void or unenforceable, such provision will be stricken or modified, but only to the extent necessary to comply with the law, and the remainder of the Agreement will remain in full force and will not be terminated. 16.9. **Notices.** Any notice, request, demand, or other communication to be provided under this Agreement shall be in writing, and shall be sent by the email addresses provided by each Party, or at such other address as a Party may designate by written notice to the other Party. 16.10. **Headings.** The section headings in this Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of the Agreement. 16.11. **Publicity.** You grant us the right to use your name, logo, and a description of your use case to refer to you on our website, customer lists, or marketing or promotional materials, subject to your standard trademark usage guidelines expressly provided to us. 16.12. **Execution.** This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
