Customer will notify Spice AI of any security compromise affecting its Users’ authentication credentials used to access the Spice AI Technology, and any Customer systems or networks that interoperate with or transmit data to the Spice AI Technology, within one business day of confirmation of the same.
6.6.6 Spice AI’s Processing of Customer Data. Spice AI will be liable for any unauthorized access to Customer Data by third parties only to the extent resulting from Spice AI’s failure to adhere to the Spice AI Security Program, or from Spice AI’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The provisions of this Section 6.6.6 apply notwithstanding any provision of these Terms of Service or any other agreement between Spice AI and Customer (or any Affiliate of Customer) to the contrary.
7.1 Beta; Preview. Customer understands and agrees that certain features of the Services and Products may be provided with early access (“Beta Features” or “Preview Features”) which Customer may choose to “opt in” to for testing and evaluation purposes and, therefore, such Beta Features may include or cause some unknown issues and use cases that Spice AI will use best efforts to resolve in stride. In consideration of receiving the opportunity to access these Beta Features, Customer hereby releases and holds harmless Spice AI and its Affiliates, and their respective members, officers, agents and employees, and all persons participating in the manufacturing or development of the Products and Services (“Released Parties”) from any and all liability, claims, demands or causes of action that Customer may hereafter incur for injuries or damages arising out of use of the Beta Features. Customer specifically releases the Released Parties from any responsibility for their negligence in the planning, conducting or supervising the use of the Beta Features.
These Terms of Service will commence on the Effective Date and will continue in effect until terminated in accordance with Section 8.1 or 8.2 below.
8.1 Termination On Breach. In the event of a material breach of the Terms of Service by either party, the non-breaching party may terminate the Terms of Service or any Sales Order directly affected by the breach by giving the breaching party written notice of the breach and the non-breaching party’s intention to terminate. If the breach has not been cured within the period ending 30 days after such notice, and if the non-breaching party provides written notice of termination to the breaching party (“Termination Notice”), these Terms of Service or any such Sales Order will terminate within the time period specified in the Termination Notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer’s failure to pay any overdue fees and expenses within 30 days of Spice AI notifying Customer of the overdue payment, which notice may include informing Customer’s Project Manager or accounts payable representative of the overdue payment in writing (including by email), will constitute a material breach of these Terms of Service. If Customer has not cured a material breach within the applicable cure period, then Spice AI may, in its sole discretion, and without prejudice to its other rights following material breach and failure to cure, until such breach has been cured in full, suspend performance of some or all of Spice AI’s obligations to provide Services or Spice AI Technology under these Terms of Service.
8.2 Termination for Convenience. Either party may terminate any Subscription Services effective upon expiration of the then current Subscription Term by providing the other party prior written notice of termination of at least the following length: if Customer is the terminating party, at least 30 days; and if Spice AI is the terminating party, at least 90 days.
8.3 Subscription Term and Renewal.
8.3.1 Term. Each subscription term for Subscription Services will commence on the Sales Order Effective Date and will continue for the period specified in the Sales Order or, if not so specified, one year (an “Initial Term”). Unless otherwise specified in the Sales Order, the Initial Term will automatically renew for additional terms of the same length of the Initial Term (each, a “Renewal Term”) unless either party declines renewal by notice in writing to that effect delivered to the other party at least 30 days prior to expiration of the then current subscription term. The Initial Term and each Renewal Term are individually referred to in these Terms as the “Subscription Term”.
8.3.2. Subscription to Upgraded or Additional Services. If Customer upgrades any of Customer’s Subscription Service subscriptions during a Subscription Term, then the Subscription Term for the upgraded Subscription Service will be coterminous with the current Subscription Term and Spice AI will invoice Customer an amount equal to the difference between the original Subscription Service fee and the upgraded Subscription Service fee. If Customer subscribes to an additional Subscription Service, the Subscription Term for that Subscription Service will begin on the Sales Order Effective Date for that Subscription Service and Customer will be separately invoiced for the applicable activation and Subscription Service fee for the additional Subscription Service.
8.3.3 Fee Increases. Fees for Services are subject to increases, which will be effective beginning upon the first day of each Renewal Term. Spice AI will notify Customer of any increase prior to its becoming effective; notice may be in a form of an invoice. If Customer objects to the increase, then Customer may terminate its subscription to the affected Services for convenience by notice provided to Spice AI at any time within 30 days of receipt of the increase notice; any such termination will be effective on the later to occur of the expiration of the 30 day period or the then current Subscription Term. Customer acknowledges that expiration of any discount or incentive programs to which Customer was previously entitled do not constitute fee increases.
8.4 Fulfillment of Obligations on Termination. Termination of the Terms of Service or of any Services will not relieve Customer from any obligation to pay fees or reimburse expenses for Services performed prior to termination.
8.5 Refund of Prepaid Subscription Fees if Customer Terminates for Breach. If Customer terminates these Terms of Service or any Sales Order for breach in accordance with Section 8.1 above, then Spice AI will refund to Customer a pro-rata amount of any Subscription Services fees prepaid to Spice AI and applicable to the unutilized portion of the Subscription Term for terminated Subscription Services. Customer is not entitled to any refund or relief from payment of any Subscription Services fees paid or payable under these Terms of Service if Customer terminates these Terms of Service or an applicable Sales Order for convenience.
8.6 Post Termination Obligations. Following any termination of the Terms of Service or any Sales Order, each party will, within 30 days of such termination, (i) immediately cease use of any Confidential Information of the other communicated for the purposes of these Terms of Service or such Sales Order, and (ii) return or destroy (and certify destruction of) all copies of any Confidential Information of the other party disclosed under the Terms of Service or such Sales Order within 30 days of such termination.
8.7 Access to and Retention of Customer Data. Customer may download an export file of Customer Data stored on the Spice AI Technology at any time during the Subscription Term, and during the 30 day period following its termination or expiration. Spice AI will destroy or overwrite Customer Data within a reasonable period of time following termination of the applicable Sales Order, subject to conformance with Spice AI’s backup and data retention policies.
8.8 Suspension. Spice AI may suspend Customer’s right to access or use any portion of the Spice AI Technology Subscription Services immediately upon notice to Customer if Spice AI determines that Customer’s, its Affiliates’, or its or their Users’ use of the Spice AI Technology Subscription Services (i) poses a security risk to the Spice AI Technology Subscription Services or any third party, (ii) may adversely impact the Spice AI Technology Subscription Services, or the networks or data of any other Spice AI customer or business partner, (iii) does not comply with applicable law, or (iv) may subject Spice AI or any third party to liability.
8.9 Survival. The provisions of Sections 1, 3, 4.5, 6, 8.5-8.7, 8.9, 9, 10 and 14 of these Terms of Service will survive any termination of these Terms of Service.
9.1 Spice AI’s Infringement Indemnification.
9.1.1 Defense and Indemnity. If any third party makes any claim against Customer that, if true, would constitute an Spice AI Infringement then, upon notification of such claim, Spice AI will, at its sole cost and expense, defend Customer against such claim and any related proceeding brought by such third party against Customer, and indemnify Customer from and against all damages finally awarded against Customer or agreed to be paid by Customer in a written settlement approved in writing by Spice AI, and resulting from the Spice AI Infringement. Spice AI’s obligations under this Section 9.1.1 are conditioned upon Customer’s compliance with the “Indemnification Conditions” (defined below).
“Indemnification Conditions” means the following conditions with which a party must comply in order to be entitled to defense or indemnification under the Terms of Service by the other party: (i) the indemnified party notifies the indemnifying party in writing of any claim that might be the subject of indemnification promptly after any executive officer of the indemnified party or member of the indemnified party’s legal department first knows of the claim, provided, however, that no failure to so notify an indemnifying party will relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under these Terms of Service except to the extent that such failure materially prejudices defense of the claim, and except to the extent of damages incurred by the indemnifying party as a result of the delay; (ii) the indemnifying party is given primary control over the defense and settlement of the claim (subject to the foregoing, the indemnified party may nonetheless participate in the defense at its sole cost and expense); (iii) the indemnified party makes no admission of liability (except as required by applicable law) nor enters into any settlement without the indemnifying party’s prior written agreement; (iv) the indemnified party provides such assistance in defense of the proceeding as the indemnifying party may reasonably request, at the indemnifying party’s reasonable expense; (v) the indemnified party complies with any court order or reasonable settlement made in connection with the proceeding; and (vi) the indemnified party uses all commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate its losses.
9.1.2 Spice AI’s Mitigation Rights. If any Subscription Services supplied by Spice AI become (or in Spice AI’s opinion are likely to become) the subject of any infringement or misappropriation claim, Spice AI may, and if Customer’s use of the Subscription Services is enjoined, Spice AI must, at its sole expense, either: (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using the relevant Subscription Services; (ii) replace or modify the relevant Subscription Services in a functionally equivalent manner so that they no longer infringe; or (iii) terminate the applicable Sales Order or Customer’s rights to use affected Subscription Services, and refund to Customer a pro-rata amount of any subscription fees prepaid to Spice AI and applicable to the unutilized portion of the Subscription Term for the terminated Subscription Services.
9.1.3 Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Spice AI will have no obligation, including under Section 5.1.4 and this Section 9.1, with respect to any infringement or misappropriation claim to the extent based upon (i) any use of the Spice AI Technology or Subscription Services not in accordance with their applicable license rights, (ii) the combination of the Spice AI Technology or Subscription Services with other products, equipment, software, services or data not supplied by Spice AI where the infringement would not have occurred but for such combination, (iii) Spice AI’s compliance with Customer’s specifications, configuration requirements, or other instructions (except to the extent that Spice AI knew that such compliance would infringe a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights), (iv) any use of any version of any Spice AI Technology other than the most current version made available to Customer after notice from Spice AI that Customer must upgrade to such release to avoid an infringement or misappropriation claim and Customer has had a reasonable time in which to implement such upgrade, (v) any modification of the Spice AI Technology or Subscription Services not made by Spice AI or at its express direction, (vi) any third party open source software, or (vii) any Customer Materials.
9.2 Customer’s Infringement Indemnification.
9.2.1 Defense and Indemnity. If any third party makes any claim against Spice AI that Spice AI’s use of any Customer Materials infringes any third party patent existing under the laws of the United States or Canada, or infringes or violates any third party copyright, trademark, service mark, privacy right or data protection right, or results from any misappropriation by Customer of such third party’s trade secrets or privacy rights (collectively, a “Customer Infringement”) then, upon notification of such claim, Customer will, at its sole cost and expense, defend Spice AI against such claim and any related proceeding brought by such third party against Customer, and Customer will indemnify Spice AI from and against all damages finally awarded against Spice AI or agreed to be paid by Spice AI in a written settlement approved in writing by Customer, and resulting from the Customer Infringement. Customer’s obligations under this Section 8.2.1 are conditioned upon Spice AI’s compliance with the Indemnification Conditions.
9.2.2 Mitigation Rights. If provision of Customer Materials is, or in Customer’s reasonable opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement or misappropriation of any intellectual property right of any third party, then Customer will have the right to: (i) procure the rights necessary for Customer to continue to provide Customer’s Materials; (ii) replace or modify the Customer Materials in a functionally equivalent manner so that they no longer infringe; or, if the options described in (i) and (ii) above are not available to Customer on commercially reasonable terms, (iii) terminate Spice AI’s rights to use the Customer Materials (in which case Spice AI’s obligations to perform the Services will be reduced to the extent that Spice AI required the Customer Materials to perform, and any such termination will be treated as a termination for convenience by Customer).
9.2.3 Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer will have no obligation under this Section 8.2 or otherwise with respect to any infringement or misappropriation claim to the extent based upon (i) any use of the Customer Materials not in accordance with their applicable license rights notified by Customer to Spice AI, (ii) combination of the Customer Materials with other products, equipment, software, services or data not supplied by Customer where the infringement would not have occurred but for such combination, but excluding combination with any Spice AI Technology, (iii) Customer’s compliance with Spice AI’s specifications or instructions, (iv) any use of any version of any Customer Materials other than the most current version made available to Spice AI after notice from Customer that Spice AI must upgrade to such release to avoid an infringement or misappropriation claim and Spice AI has had a reasonable time in which to implement such upgrade, (v) any modification of the Customer Materials not made by Customer or at its express direction, or (vi) any data processed by the Customer Materials that Customer has not provided, made available, or required Spice AI to use or access.
9.3 Personal Injury and Property Damage Indemnification. Each party (for purposes of this Section 9.3, the “Indemnifying Party”) will defend and indemnify the other party (for purposes of this Section 9.3, the “Indemnified Party”) from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, judgments, costs or expenses for bodily injury, death, or damage to tangible personal property (excluding damages caused by software), to the extent resulting from the negligent act or omission of the Indemnifying Party or persons in its employ in connection with the performance of its obligations or enjoyment of its rights under the Terms of Service, or when entering, while on, or upon leaving the Indemnified Party’s property or worksite; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party complies with the Indemnification Conditions.
9.4 Improper Use of Spice AI Technology. Customer will indemnify and hold Spice AI harmless from any claims, damages, losses, judgments, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or in connection with any non-compliance with the EULA or Website Terms of Service for which Customer, Customer’s Users, or Customer’s Affiliates are responsible.
10.1 Exclusion of Certain Claims. SUBJECT TO SECTION 10.3, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY, OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR UNFORESEEABLE (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF DATA, GOODWILL, PROFITS, INVESTMENTS, USE OF MONEY OR USE OF FACILITIES; INTERRUPTION IN USE OR AVAILABILITY OF DATA; STOPPAGE OF OTHER WORK OR IMPAIRMENT OF OTHER ASSETS), EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF (i) THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PROVIDED HEREUNDER, OR (ii) ANY CLAIM, CAUSE OF ACTION, BREACH OF CONTRACT OR ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR OTHERWISE, MISREPRESENTATION, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHER TORT.
10.2 Limitation of Liability. Subject to Section 10.3, neither party’s entire liability arising out of these Terms of Service will in any event exceed the fees paid to Spice AI under the Sales Order giving rise to the claim during the 12 month period immediately preceding the aggrieved party’s first assertion of any claim against the other, regardless of whether any action or claim is based in contract, misrepresentation, warranty, indemnity, negligence, strict liability or other tort or otherwise.
10.3 Exceptions. Sections 10.1 and 10.2 do not apply to either party’s (i) willful misconduct or gross negligence, or (ii) infringement or misappropriation of any of the other’s Intellectual Property Rights. Any amounts payable by an indemnified party to a third party pursuant to a judgment or to a settlement agreement approved in writing by an indemnifying party, liability for which falls within the indemnifying party’s indemnification obligations under these Terms of Service, will be deemed direct damages for purposes of this Section 10. Section 10.2 does not apply to (i) each party’s defense and indemnification obligations, (ii) Customer’s obligations to pay fees and expenses when due and payable under these Terms of Service, nor (iii) either party’s obligations under Section 6 (Confidential Information; Personal Information; Data Protection), provided, however, that except to the extent of willful misconduct or gross negligence of Spice AI, Spice AI’s liability under Section 6 will not exceed the fees paid by Customer to Spice AI under the affected Sales Order in the 12 month period immediately preceding Spice AI’s breach.
10.4 General. Customer agrees that these exclusions and limitations apply even if the remedies are insufficient to cover all of the losses or damages of Customer or its Affiliates, or fail of their essential purpose and that without these limitations the fees for the Services would be significantly higher. Neither party may commence any action or proceeding under these Terms of Service more than two years after the occurrence of the applicable cause of action.
11.1 Governing Law. These Terms of Service will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware and, where such laws are preempted by the laws of the United States, by the internal laws of the United States, in each case without regard to (i) conflicts of laws principles, and (ii) the applicability, if any, of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
11.2 Disputes. Any disputes arising under these Terms of Service will be referred to an appropriate senior manager of Customer and an appropriate senior manager in Spice AI who will, within 10 days of written notice of a dispute being served by one on the other, meet by telephone or videoconference in a good faith effort to resolve the dispute without recourse to legal proceedings. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof that cannot be resolved by the parties, will be finally settled by binding arbitration conducted in the English language in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitration will be heard by one arbitrator if the total amount in controversy is less than one million dollars ($1,000,000.00); otherwise the parties will jointly agree to three neutral arbitrators. Provided, however, that if the parties cannot agree to one or more arbitrators, (or if one party refuses to appoint an arbitrator) within 30 days after the initiation of the arbitration, then such arbitrators will be appointed by the AAA. Disputes about arbitration procedure will be resolved by the arbitrators, or failing agreement, by the AAA. The arbitrator(s) may proceed to an award notwithstanding the failure of the either party to participate in the proceedings. Discovery will be limited to mutual exchange of documents relevant to the dispute, controversy or claim; depositions will not be permitted unless agreed to by both parties. The arbitrator(s) will be authorized to grant interim relief, including to prevent the destruction of materials or documents involved in the dispute, protect trade secrets and provide for security for a prospective monetary award. The prevailing party will be entitled to an award of reasonable attorney fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such amount as may be determined by the arbitrators. The award of the arbitrators will be the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties and will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction, subject only to revocation on grounds of fraud or clear bias on the part of the arbitrator(s). Notwithstanding this, application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement.
Spice AI will provide Customer notice of any modifications to these Terms of Service or to an Additional Terms of Service applicable to Customer and affecting Services (a “Modification Notice”). As between Customer and Spice AI, Modification Notices for the Professional Services Terms will not become effective until completion of all Professional Services pending under then existing Sales Orders. If modifications materially and adversely affect Customer and, as a result, Customer does not wish to accept such modifications, then Customer may terminate Customer’s subscription to the affected Service by providing Spice AI notice in accordance with these Terms of Service, subject to the following:
(i) If the Modification Notice states that the modifications will become effective upon commencement of a Renewal Term, then Customer may terminate Customer’s subscription for convenience prior to commencement of the Renewal Term, in accordance with Section 8.2 (Termination for Convenience).
(ii) If the Modification Notice states that the modifications will become effective during the then current Subscription Term, then Customer may terminate Customer’s subscription to the affected Subscription Services at any time within the 30 day period following the date of the Modification Notice. Customer’s termination will become effective on the later to occur of (a) the date on which Customer delivers the termination notice, or (b) the date on which the applicable modifications become effective. If Customer terminates a Subscription Services subscription pursuant to this Section 13(ii), then Customer will be entitled to a pro-rata refund of any Subscription Services fees prepaid to Spice AI for the terminated Subscription Service for the unutilized portion of the Subscription Term (for clarification, Subscription Services fees do not include any activation fees, installation fees, Professional Service fees, or other expenses incurred in connection with the Services).
If Customer does not terminate the affected Service subscription as specified in this Section 12, then Customer will be bound by the modified terms beginning upon the date on which the Modification Notice states they become effective. References to these Terms of Service are to the Terms of Service (including Additional Terms of Service) as modified and updated from time to time.
13.1 Affiliates. These Terms of Service set forth the general terms and conditions under which Spice AI will provide Services to Customer and its Affiliates (defined below). Sales Orders may be entered into under these Terms of Service by either the entity designated above as “Customer” or any of Customer’s Affiliates. The entity that executes a Sales Order in the position of services recipient will be considered the “Customer” for all purposes of the Sales Order; and the Sales Order will be considered a two party agreement between Spice AI and such “Customer” under these Terms of Service.
13.2 Publicity; References. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Sales Order, Spice AI may refer to Customer as one of Spice AI’s customers and use Customer’s logo as part of such reference, provided that Spice AI complies with any trademark usage requirements notified to it by Customer. If so specified in the applicable Sales Order, (i) Spice AI may either (a) issue a press release announcing the relationship between Spice AI and Customer, or (b) submit a joint press release to Customer for Customer’s approval, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed; and (b) Customer will be a reference account for Spice AI, provided, however, that Spice AI will provide Customer with reasonable notice and obtain Customer’s consent before scheduling any reference calls or site visits.
13.3 Compliance With Laws. Spice AI and Customer will comply with all applicable laws and regulations with respect to these Terms of Service, including U.S. export control laws. Neither party will have any liability to the other for any non-performance of their obligations under these Terms of Service to the extent that the non-performance is mandated by applicable law. Each party represents and warrants to the other that neither it nor its Affiliates, nor any of its or their users, officers or directors, are persons, entities or organizations with whom the other party is prohibited from dealing (including provision of software, products or services) by virtue of any applicable law, regulation, or executive order, including US export control laws, and names appearing on the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List.
13.4 Non-Solicitation of Personnel. During the provision of Services under these Terms of Service, and for a period of twelve (12) months thereafter, neither party (the “Relevant Party”) will, without the prior written consent of the other, directly or indirectly solicit, hire or employ any employee or individual independent contractor of the other party who has been involved in the provision of Services during the preceding year to become an employee or individual independent contractor of the Relevant Party. Nothing in this section will make a party liable for general solicitations in the media or on the World Wide Web.
13.5 U.S. Government Rights In The Services. Spice AI provides the Services for ultimate federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: Government technical data and software rights related to the Services 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 228.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not conveyed under these terms, it must negotiate with Spice AI to determine if there are acceptable terms for transferring such rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically conveying such rights must be included in any applicable contract or agreement.
13.6 Equitable Relief. Each of Customer and Spice AI acknowledges that damages will be an inadequate remedy if the other violates the terms of these Terms of Service pertaining to protection of a party’s Intellectual Property Rights, Confidential Information or Personal Information. Accordingly, each of them will have the right, in addition to any other rights each of them may have, to obtain in any court of competent jurisdiction, temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief to restrain any breach, threatened breach, or otherwise to specifically enforce any of the obligations in these Terms of Service.
13.7 Force Majeure. If the performance of these Terms of Service is adversely restricted or if either party is unable to conform to any warranty by reason of any circumstances beyond the reasonable control and without the fault or negligence of the party affected, then, except with respect to obligations to pay any fees or expenses, the party affected, upon giving prompt written notice to the other party, will be excused from such performance on a day-to-day basis to the extent of such restriction (and the other party will likewise be excused from performance of its obligations on a day-to-day basis to the extent such party’s obligations relate to the performance so restricted); provided, however, that the party so affected will use all commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or remove such causes of non-performance and both parties will proceed whenever such causes are removed or cease.
13.8 Service Enhancement Analysis. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Sales Order Spice AI may use Customer’s usage history and statistics (collectively, “Enhancement Data”) for Spice AI’s internal analytical purposes, related to its provision of Services, including to improve and enhance the Subscription Services and the Spice AI Technology. Spice AI may make information derived from its analysis of Enhancement Data publicly available, provided that the publicized information does not include any Enhancement Data that has not been aggregated and anonymized. For the purposes of these Terms of Service, aggregated and anonymized Enhancement Data means Enhancement Data that (i) has been aggregated with other data, and (ii) does not contain information that identifies Customer or its Users. For the sake of clarity, aggregated and anonymized data is not Confidential Information of Customer.
13.9 Captions and Headings. The captions and headings are inserted in these Terms of Service for convenience only, and will not be deemed to limit or describe the scope or intent of any provision of these Terms of Service.
13.10 Severability; Invalidity. If any provision of these Terms of Service is held to be invalid, such invalidity will not render invalid the remainder of these Terms of Service or the remainder of which such invalid provision is a part. If any provision of these Terms of Service is so broad as to be held unenforceable, such provision will be interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable.
13.11 Waiver. No waiver of or with respect to any provision of these Terms of Service, nor consent by a party to the breach of or departure from any provision of these Terms of Service, will in any event be binding on or effective against such party unless it be in writing and signed by such party, and then such waiver will be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given.
13.12 Third Party Beneficiaries. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms of Service, no provisions of these Terms of Service are intended nor will be interpreted to provide or create any third party beneficiary rights or any other rights of any kind in any other party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Spice AI’s suppliers of products and services delivered hereunder will enjoy the same disclaimers of warranty, limitations on liability and similar exculpatory provisions with respect to such products and services as does Spice AI.
13.13 Assignment. Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations under these Terms of Service without the prior written consent of the other, which will not be unreasonably withheld, provided, however, that either party may assign all, but not some of its rights and obligations under these Terms of Service to any of its Affiliates, or to any entity into or with which it is merged, or that acquires all or substantially all of its assets. Subject to the foregoing restriction on assignment by Customer, these Terms of Service will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
13.14 Notices. Spice AI will provide Customer with notices that affect Spice AI’s customers generally (e.g., notice of an update made to the Services) by e-mail or by posting it on the Spice AI website or Site. Spice AI will provide Customer with any legal notices by first class mail or e-mail to the mailing or e-mail address Customer provided Spice AI on the applicable Sales Order, or during Customer’s registration for the Services, or to a substitute, updated mailing or e-mail address that Customer has provided to Spice AI for these purposes. Customer is responsible for keeping its mailing and e-mail address current with Spice AI. Notices that Spice AI sends electronically will be deemed received upon dispatch, and notices that Spice AI sends by first class mail will be deemed received within 3 days of dispatch, regardless of whether Customer actually receives the notice. Except as otherwise specified in these Terms of Service, all notices to be given to Spice AI under these Terms of Service must be in writing and sent to Spice AI’s headquarters by prepaid mail or overnight courier at the address then-specified on the Spice AI website; such notices will be deemed received upon delivery to Spice AI.
13.15 Entire Agreement; Amendments. These Terms of Service constitute and embody the entire agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous written, electronic or oral communications, representations, agreements or understandings between the parties with respect thereto. These Terms of Service may not be modified or amended except by a written instrument executed by both parties, subject to Section 13 above. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions of these Terms of Service and the terms of any form of purchase order or invoice, the provisions of these Terms of Service will prevail. Customer’s standard terms of purchase, if any, are inapplicable. In the event of any conflict between the terms of these Terms of Service and any Sales Order, the following order of precedence will apply, except to the extent expressly specified otherwise in the applicable Sales Order: (i) the Terms of Service, and (ii) the Sales Order.
13.16 Counterparts. Sales Orders and any amendments to these Terms of Service may be executed in one or more counterparts, which taken together will constitute a single agreement between the parties.
