ServiceCentral will provide Customer with access to the Service through its website at www.servicecentral.com ("ServiceCentral.com website"). Customer's registration for, or use of, the Service shall be deemed to be Customer's agreement to abide by this Agreement including any additional privacy terms on ServiceCentral.com website incorporated by reference herein and an acknowledgment that the System Requirements, to be provided by the Customer and located at www.servicecentral.com\systemrequirements.pdf, are required for optimal use of the Service. For reference, a Definitions section is included at the end of this Agreement.
LICENSE GRANTS AND RESTRICTIONS:
ServiceCentral grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable worldwide right to use the Service, solely for Customer's own internal business purposes subject to the terms of this Agreement. Customer grants to ServiceCentral the non-exclusive, worldwide, right to use, copy, store, transmit and display Customer Data solely to the extent necessary to provide the Service as requested by Customer. Customer is permitted to store, manipulate, analyze, reformat, print, and display the Content only for your internal business use. Unauthorized use, resale or commercial exploitation of the Service and/or the Content in any way is expressly prohibited. Customer shall not (i) license, sublicense, copy, sell, resell, transfer, assign, reverse engineer, distribute or otherwise make available to any third party the Service or the Content, (ii) modify or make derivative works based upon the ServiceCentral Technology or the Content; (iii) commercially exploit the Service or the Content in any way, or (iv) create internet "links" to the Service or "frame" or "mirror" any Content contained in or accessible from, the Service on any other server, wireless or Internet-based device. ServiceCentral and its licensors reserve all rights, not expressly granted to Customer.
CHARGES AND PAYMENT OF FEES:
Customer will pay all fees or charges to its account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. The initial charges will be equal to the current number of total Users licenses requested times the User license currently in effect. Payments may be made annually, monthly, or quarterly, consistent with the Initial Term, at Customer's election. License fees are nonrefundable whether or not User licenses are actively used. Customer must provide ServiceCentral with valid credit card or approved purchase order information as a condition to signing up for the Service. An authorized License Administrator may add licenses by executing an additional Order Form or using the Online Order Center. Added licenses will be subject to the following: (i) added licenses will be coterminous with the preexisting License Term (either Initial Term or renewal term) (ii) the license fee for the added licenses will be at the then current, generally applicable license fee; and (iii) licenses added in the middle of a billing period will be charged for that billing period, on a pro rata basis, as well as the subsequent billing period. ServiceCentral reserves the right to change the fees, applicable charges and usage policies and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least thirty (30) days prior notice to Customer, which notice may be provided by electronic mail.
EXCESS DATA STORAGE FEES:
The maximum disk storage space provided to Customer at no additional charge is a cumulative of 10 MB per User license. If the amount of disk storage required exceeds this limit, Customer will be charged the then-current storage fees. ServiceCentral will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer when the average storage used per license reaches approximately 90% of the maximum; however, any failure by ServiceCentral to so notify Customer shall not affect Customer's responsibility for such additional storage charges. ServiceCentral reserves the right to establish or modify its general practices and limits concerning storage of Customer Data.
BILLING AND RENEWAL:
ServiceCentral charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. ServiceCentral will automatically renew and bill Customer's credit card or issue an invoice to Customer (a) every month for monthly licenses, (b) every quarter for quarterly licenses, or (c) each year on the subsequent anniversary for annual licenses. The renewal charge will be equal to the then-current number of total User licenses times the then-current license fee in effect at the time of renewal. Fees for the other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. ServiceCentral's fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and Customer shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States federal or state taxes based solely on ServiceCentral's income.
Customer agrees to provide ServiceCentral with complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes Customer's legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact, credit card number (if applicable) and License Administrator. Customer agrees to update this information within 15 days of any change to it. If the contact information provided by the Customer is false, fraudulent, or otherwise incorrect, ServiceCentral reserves the right to immediately suspend Customer's access to the Service, or terminate this agreement, in addition to any other legal remedies.
For credit card payers, invoices will be generated at the start of a license or billing period and Customer's credit card will be charged simultaneously. If paying by other means, invoices will be generated at the start of a license or billing period and approximately one month in advance of the start of any renewal or subsequent billing period and shall be due within 30 days. Customer's account will be considered delinquent (in arrears) if payment in full is not received by the license or billing period start date.
Unless ServiceCentral, at its discretion, determines otherwise, all Customers will be billed in U.S. dollars and subject to U.S. payment terms and pricing schemes.
If Customer believes that the bill is incorrect, Customer must contact us in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.
In addition to any other rights granted to ServiceCentral herein, ServiceCentral reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and Customer's access to the Service if Customer's account becomes delinquent (falls into arrears). Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. Customer will continue to be charged for User licenses during any period of suspension. If Customer or ServiceCentral initiate termination of this Agreement, Customer will be obligated to pay the balance due on Customer's account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. Customer agrees that ServiceCentral may charge such unpaid fees to Customer's credit card or otherwise bill Customer for such unpaid fees.
SUSPENSION OF SERVICES:
In the event Customer's account becomes thirty (30) days or more overdue, in addition to and not in lieu of any of its other rights or remedies under this Agreement, ServiceCentral reserves the right to suspend the Service provided to the Customer. ServiceCentral also reserves the right to impose a separate reconnection fee should Customer thereafter again request access to the Service. Customer agrees and acknowledges that ServiceCentral has no obligation to retain the Customer Data if the account is more than thirty (30) days overdue, and such Customer Data will be irretrievably deleted if the account is unpaid after thirty (30) days.
