PROVISION OF SERVICES.
Services. During the Term (as defined below), we will provide the Services to Customer subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Subject to such terms and conditions, we hereby grant Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable right and license to: (i) access and use the Platform via the Website for Customer’s internal business purposes; and (ii) allow Authorized Users to access and use the Platform for their internal business purposes.
Modifications; New Functionalities. We reserve the right to modify the Platform, the Website, and the Output from time to time by adding, deleting, or modifying features to improve the user experience or for other business purposes. We further reserve the right to discontinue any feature of the Platform or Website, or any Output or portion thereof, at any time during the Term at our sole and reasonable discretion. Any such modification or discontinuance during the Term will not materially decrease the overall functionality of the Platform or the Website. From time to time, we may develop additional functionalities of the Platform outside of the Scope of Functionality (each, a “New Functionality”). If Customer desires access to any New Functionality upon Range’s making such New Functionality available to its customers for purchase, Customer may enter into an Order Form for such New Functionality, which purchase order shall set forth the additional fees associated with such New Functionality.
Beta Features. From time to time, we may invite Customer to try “beta” features or functionalities of the Platform which are not generally available to our customers for production use at no charge. Customer may accept or decline any such trial in its sole discretion. Such beta features are for evaluation purposes only and not for production use, are not considered part of the Services under this Agreement, are not supported, and may be subject to additional terms. Unless otherwise expressly agreed to by us, any beta feature trial period will expire upon the date that a version of the beta feature becomes generally available to all of our customers for production use or upon the date that we elect to discontinue
such beta feature. We may discontinue beta features at any time in our sole discretion and may never make them generally available as part of the Platform. We will have no liability to Customer or any third party for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with any use of a beta feature, and Customer’s use of any beta feature is at Customer’s own risk.
Service Level Commitment. During the Term, Range, or our contractors, shall host the Platform such that the Platform is available for use by Customer and its Authorized Users. Range and/or our contractors shall periodically monitor the Platform to optimize performance of the Platform, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any downtime, other than for scheduled maintenance or downtime caused by reasons beyond our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, armed conflict, terrorism, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third- party services, or virus attacks or hackers. We will notify Customer of any unavailability or other issue with the Services, or the Platform. Customer and its Authorized Users will be responsible for obtaining Internet connections and other third-party software and services necessary for them to access the Platform and the Services.
FEES AND PAYMENT.
Fees and Payments. In consideration for Customer’s access to and use of the Services, it shall pay Range the fees set forth in the applicable Order Form (the “Fees”). Unless otherwise provided in an Order Form, Range will invoice Customer for the Fees and any applicable Taxes (as defined below) within a reasonable time following the end of each calendar month during the Subscription Term, for the Services provided during such calendar month. All Fees are due and payable within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice therefor. Except as otherwise provided in an Order Form, Range may increase the Fees from time to time by upon written notice to Customer; provided, however, that any amendment to the Fees shall not be effective until the following Renewal Period (as defined on Schedule A).
Taxes. Fees and other charges due hereunder are in addition to, and do not include any federal, provincial, or local sales, PST, GST, HST, VAT, foreign withholding, use, property, excise, service, or similar transaction taxes (“Taxes”) now or hereafter levied, all of which will be for Customer’s account. Any applicable direct pay permits or valid tax-exempt certificates must be provided to us prior to the execution of this Agreement. If we are required to collect and remit Taxes on Customer’s behalf, we will invoice Customer for such Taxes, and Customer will pay us for such amounts in accordance with the payment terms set forth in this Section 3.2. Customer hereby agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Range, our Affiliates, our suppliers and hosting providers, and our and their respective Representatives (as defined below) harmless from and against any and all liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (“Losses”) incurred by any such parties in connection with any Taxes and related costs, interest, and penalties paid or payable by Range on Customer’s behalf. For the avoidance of doubt, we will only be responsible for taxes related to our income, property, franchise, or employees.
Late Payments. In the event that any invoiced amount is not received by the due date as set forth in Section 3.2 and Customer fails to cure such default within thirty (30) days of such due date, with or without written notice of such default from Range, then, without limiting our rights and remedies, we may: (i) charge interest on the outstanding balance (not to exceed the maximum rate permitted by law);
(ii) condition future Renewal Periods on payment terms shorter than those herein; (iii) suspend the Services pursuant to Section 4.3; and/or (iv) terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 4.2.
Non-Refundable. Unless otherwise expressly provided for in this Agreement, (i) all Fees are based on Services purchased and not on actual use; and (ii) all Fees paid under this Agreement are non- refundable.
No Contingency for Future Commitments. Customer agrees that payment of the Fees under this Agreement is not contingent on the delivery of any future Platform functionalities, features, Output, or any other future commitments, except as set forth in Section 2.1 of this Agreement.
TERMINATION AND SUSPENSION.
Term. The Term of this Agreement commences on the Effective Date and will continue in effect until earlier terminated in accordance with Section 4.2 below. Each Subscription Term shall be set forth in the applicable Order Form.
Termination. Either Party may terminate this Agreement for any reason or no reason upon thirty (30) days’ written notice to the other Party when there are no Order Forms then in effect (a, “Termination for Convenience”). In addition, either Party may terminate this Agreement immediately, if the other Party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, liquidation, or assignment for the benefit of creditors. We may also terminate this Agreement
(i) upon five (5) business days’ written notice to Customer if Customer breaches Section 8 of this Agreement, and such breach is not cured within such five (5) business day period, or (ii) upon written notice to Customer under the limited circumstances set forth in Section 11.2 below.
Suspension for Non-Payment. We may suspend the Services upon written notice to Customer if any undisputed invoiced amount is more than thirty (30) days past due. We will not suspend the Services while Customer is disputing any invoiced amount due to us reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute. If the Services are suspended for non-payment, we may charge a re-activation fee to reinstate the Services. Customer will promptly reimburse us for any reasonable expenses of collection, including costs, disbursements, and reasonable outside legal fees we incur, to the extent necessitated by Customer’s refusal to pay any invoiced amounts that it is not disputing in good faith.
Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement as set forth in Section 4.2:
(i) we will stop providing the applicable Services, and Customer will immediately cease, and cause its Authorized Users to cease, all access to and use of the Website and Platform; (ii) Customer will promptly pay all unpaid Fees, applicable Taxes, and all other amounts due hereunder; and (iii)), upon written request, each Party will either return to the Disclosing Party (or, at such Disclosing Party’s instruction, destroy and provide such Disclosing Party with written certification of the destruction of) all documents, computer files, and other materials containing any of such Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that are in the Receiving Party’s possession or control. In the event of a Termination for Convenience by Range, Range will refund a portion of the Fees pre-paid by Customer for the remainder of the then-current Term. Except as described in the immediately preceding sentence, Customer shall not be entitled to any refunds hereunder.
Survival. The following provisions will survive termination of this Agreement: Section 1 (“Definitions”), Section 3 (“Fees and Payment”) until Customer has paid all Fees, applicable Taxes, and other amounts due hereunder, Section 4.4 (“Effect of Termination”), this Section 4.5 (“Survival”), Section 5 (“Confidentiality; Feedback”), Section 6.2 (“Aggregated Data”), Section 7 (“Intellectual Property”), Section 9.2 (“Disclaimer”), Section 10 (“Limitation of Liability”), Section 11 (“Indemnification”), and Section 12 (“General Provisions”).
Confidentiality. At all times the Receiving Party will protect and preserve the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party as confidential, using no less care than that with which it protects and preserves its own confidential and proprietary information (but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care), and will not use the Confidential Information for any purpose except to perform its obligations and exercise its rights under this Agreement. The Receiving Party may disclose, distribute, or disseminate the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any of its officers, directors, members,
managers, partners, employees, contractors or agents (its “Representatives”), provided that the Receiving Party reasonably believes that its Representatives have a need to know and such Representatives are bound by confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those contained herein. The Receiving Party will not disclose, distribute, or disseminate the Confidential Information to any third party, other than its Representatives, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party. The Receiving Party will at all times remain responsible for any violations of this Agreement by any of its Representatives. If the Receiving Party is legally compelled to disclose any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, the Receiving Party will provide the Disclosing Party prompt prior written notice of such requirement so that the Disclosing Party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with the terms of this Section. If such protective order or other remedy is not obtained or the Disclosing Party waives compliance with the provisions of this Section, the Receiving Party may furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information which it is advised by its counsel is legally required to be disclosed, and will use its best efforts to insure that confidential treatment will be afforded such disclosed portion of the Confidential Information.
Specific Performance and Injunctive Relief. The Receiving Party acknowledges that in the event of a breach of Section 5.1 by the Receiving Party or its Representatives, substantial injury could result to the Disclosing Party and money damages will not be a sufficient remedy for such breach. Therefore, in the event that the Receiving Party or its Representatives engage in, or threaten to engage in any act which violates Section 5.1, the Disclosing Party will be entitled, in addition to all other remedies which may be available to it under law, to seek injunctive relief (including, without limitation, temporary restraining orders, or preliminary or permanent injunctions) and specific enforcement of the terms of Section 5.1. The Disclosing Party will not be required to post a bond or other security in connection with the granting of any such relief.
Feedback. During the Term, Customer may elect to provide us with feedback, comments, and suggestions with respect to the Platform, the Output, the Website, or the Services (“Feedback”). Customer agrees that Range will be free to use, reproduce, disclose, and otherwise exploit any and all such Feedback without compensation or attribution to Customer or any Authorized User.
CUSTOMER DATA AND OUTPUT.

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Customer hereby grants us a non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up, royalty-free right and license, with the right to grant sublicenses through multiple tiers to vendors providing services to us (such as hosting providers), to reproduce, execute, use, store, archive, modify, perform, display, and distribute the Customer Data only for the purpose of providing the Services hereunder or as otherwise expressly permitted herein. Upon expiration or termination of the Agreement, we may retain an archival copy of the Customer Data kept in the normal course of business or for purposes of complying with Applicable Law.

Customer hereby agrees that we may collect, use, publish, disseminate, sell, transfer, and otherwise exploit such Aggregate Data, or a subset thereof, for any purpose.

Data Security. We (and any third-party hosting provider that we may engage) will employ commercially reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to secure the Customer Data, from unauthorized use or disclosure.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. As between the Parties, all right, title, and interest in and to the Platform, the Website, the Output, the Aggregate Data, and the Usage Data, including all modifications, improvements, adaptations, enhancements, derivatives, or translations made thereto or therefrom, and all intellectual property rights therein, are and will remain the sole and exclusive property of Range. Subject to Section 6.1 and Section 6.3, all right, title, and interest in and to Customer Data, and all intellectual property rights therein, will be and remain Customer’s sole and exclusive property.
USE AND LIMITATIONS OF USE.

Failure to remedy such default shall be deemed a material breach of this Agreement by Customer.
