You may not (and may not allow a third party to): (a) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or attempt to reconstruct, identify or discover any source code, underlying ideas, user interface techniques or algorithms of the Reseller Application by any means whatsoever, except to the extent the foregoing restrictions are expressly prohibited by applicable law; (b) remove or destroy any copyright notices or other proprietary markings; (c) attempt to circumvent any use restrictions or gain unauthorised access to the Reseller Application, computer systems or networks related to the Reseller Application; (d) modify or create derivative works based on the Reseller Application; (e) copy or distribute the Reseller Application; (f) allow use of the Reseller Application by anyone other than user(s) authorised and paid for by You; (g) knowingly transmit through the Reseller Application unlawful, libellous, tortious, defamatory, threatening, vulgar, or obscene material or material containing viruses or other harmful code; or (h) otherwise use the Reseller Application other than as permitted in Section 2. You acknowledge that the Reseller may utilise technological license control features that can limit Your access to or use of Reseller Application to ensure Your compliance with this Agreement.
5.2 You are responsible for all activity occurring under your user accounts, including the consequential impact on Your Data, and shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with your use of the Reseller Application, including those related to data privacy, international communications and the transmission of technical or personal data. You shall: (i) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorised access to, or use of, the Reseller Application, and will notify the Reseller promptly of any unauthorised use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security; (ii) report to the Reseller immediately and use reasonable efforts to stop immediately any unauthorised copying or distribution of content that is known or suspected by you or your users; and (iii) not impersonate another user or provide false identity information to gain access to or use the Reseller Application. You will not attempt to or use your access to the Reseller Application to knowingly interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Reseller Application or the data contained therein.
6. Fees and Payment.
You subscribe to the Reseller Application with an annual subscription and shall pay in advance an annual fee to access and use the Reseller Application. An initial invoice will be provided on the date of order confirmation; upon payment your subscription to the Reseller Application will be activated for a 12-month fixed term. The end date of this subscription term will be referred to as the subscription renewal date. 30 days before the subscription renewal date a renewal invoice will be provided; upon payment your subscription will be activated for a further 12-month fixed term from the subscription renewal date. Payment must be made on or prior to the subscription renewal date; failure to do so will result in your subscription to the Reseller Application being terminated. The fees do not include any taxes or duties of any kind, which may be imposed by any governmental entity on the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and You shall be solely responsible for all such taxes other than taxes based solely on the Reseller’s income. All amounts paid are non-refundable. All fee amounts are quoted in and must be paid in GBP Sterling. In addition to any other rights granted to the Reseller herein, the Reseller reserves the right to suspend your access to and use of the Reseller Application if you fail to pay any undisputed amount owed on or before its due date.
You subscribe to the Reseller Application with a fixed-term (the “Agreement Term”) comprised of one or more annual Subscription Terms (each of which is 12 calendar months elapsed). This subscription will automatically renew within the Agreement Term, unless terminated by either party. Renewals outside of the Agreement Term are not automatic.
Either party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement in the event of a breach by the other party, which breach has not been cured within 30 days of the receipt of written notice thereof, except in the case of Your failure to pay any fees when due hereunder, which must be cured within 5 days after receipt of written notice from the Reseller. Either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party becomes the subject of an involuntary petition in bankruptcy or other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, or liquidation, if such petition is not dismissed within 60 days of filing. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, the rights granted to You hereunder will immediately terminate and You shall immediately discontinue any use of the Reseller Application. Termination shall not relieve You of the obligation to pay any fees accrued or payable to the Reseller prior to the effective date of termination. Unilateral termination for convenience by You within a multi-year Agreement Term will require termination fees to be settled equal to the value of all discounts received to date plus 25% of the fees due for future Subscription Terms within the Agreement Term.
The Reseller will provide email support to You for current versions of the Reseller Application. The Reseller will investigate all of Your questions and problems promptly. You agree to provide adequate information to the Reseller to assist in the investigation and to confirm that any problems have been resolved. The Reseller does not provide a guaranteed response time as standard, but will make good faith effort to respond to all support enquiries within twenty-four (24) hours or less during weekdays, excluding holidays. The Reseller operates in the United Kingdom and will observe standard UK business hours. The Reseller may, in its sole discretion, from time to time update the Reseller Application and may include such updates, free of charge, in the Reseller Application, provided You have paid all applicable fees then due hereunder.
“Confidential Information” means information disclosed by either party to the other, whether orally, electronically or in writing, which is designated as confidential or would reasonably be considered to be confidential under the circumstances by a reasonable person. The Reseller “Confidential Information” shall include, but not be limited to, Reseller Application, documentation, technology and technical information, product designs and business processes. Each party agrees to use Confidential Information solely to perform obligations and exercise rights under this Agreement and not to disclose, or permit to be disclosed, either directly or indirectly, Confidential Information to any third party without the other’s prior written consent. Each party shall safeguard the Confidential Information of the other party using the same measures it uses to protect its own confidential information, but in no event less than reasonable care. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither party bears responsibility for safeguarding information that is publicly available without breach of an obligation owed to the disclosing party hereunder, obtained from third parties not under confidentiality restrictions, independently developed or known to the recipient without breach of an obligation owed to the disclosing party, or required to be disclosed by order of court or other governmental entity. If either party breaches, or threatens to breach the provisions of this Section 10, each party agrees that the non-breaching party will have no adequate remedy at law and is therefore entitled to immediate injunctive and other equitable relief.
11. Customer Warranties.
You shall be solely responsible for all activities in connection with the Reseller Application that occur under Your username(s). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, You shall: (i) comply with all applicable laws and regulations; and (ii) be solely responsible for the accuracy, reliability, and quality of any information or data submitted by You to the Reseller or processed using the Reseller Application. You warrant that any data, content, or materials used, stored or created by You, using the Reseller Application will not infringe the copyright, trade secret, patent, privacy, publicity, or other proprietary or intellectual property right of any third party.
12. Breach of Customer Warranties.
In the event of any breach, or reasonably anticipated breach, of any of Your warranties or obligations, or You infringe or misappropriate the Reseller’s intellectual property rights, in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity, the Reseller will have the right to immediately suspend Your access to or use of the Reseller Application and/or terminate this Agreement, if deemed reasonably necessary by the Reseller to prevent any harm to the Reseller or its business.
Customer shall indemnify and hold the Reseller and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and employees harmless from any claims by third parties, and any related damages, losses or costs (including reasonable legal fees and costs), arising out of a claim or demand alleging that any data or content submitted by You to the Reseller infringes, misappropriates, or violates any rights of a third party including any third party intellectual property rights.

The parties are independent contractors and this Agreement does not create any joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between You and the Reseller.
