Iquanti and its licensors make no representations or warranties and disclaim all representations and warranties with respect to alps, the product materials, customer content, services, products, information, data, and other materials on, in, and made available through alps, express or implied, written or oral, arising from course of dealing, course of performance, usage of trade, or otherwise, including the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, systems integration, non-interference, quality, title, and non-infringement. Iquanti and its licensors and suppliers do not warrant that alps or other products or services will be uninterrupted, secure, accurate, timely, virus-free, or error free; nor do they make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from use of alps or other products or services. The entire risk as to satisfactory quality, performance, accuracy, completeness, and effort with regard to any and all customer content, alps, the product materials, services, products, information, data, and other materials on, in, and made available through alps is with you.
iQuanti reserves the right to charge you at iQuanti’s then-current hourly rates for any troubleshooting, break/fix, or other services required for iQuanti to correct problems caused by you or any third party, including problems caused by:(i) your hardware, software, networks, or host systems or the combination; (ii) your misuse of ALPS; and (iii) your failure to complete tasks, or deliver identified deliverables in accordance with any agreed project plan. For the avoidance of doubt, iQuanti shall not be responsible or liable for any components, products, or services obtained from third party vendors except if authorized by iQuanti, or the actual or alleged breach by you of any of the terms or policies of a third party vendor.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Iquanti and its licensors shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary, extra-contractual, or punitive damages of any kind whatsoever, including lost revenues or lost profits, which may or do result from the use of, access to, or inability to use alps, the product materials, customer content, services, products, data, and other materials on, in, and made available through alps, regardless of legal theory, whether or not you or iquanti had been advised of the possibility or probability of such damages, and even if the remedies otherwise available fail of their essential purpose. Under no circumstances will the total liability of iquanti and its licensors to you or any other person or entity in connection with, based upon, or arising from alps, the product materials, or customer content on, in, and made available through alps, or the services, products, data, or other materials offered in connection with alps exceed the price paid by you during the preceding year for use of alps, or $50, whichever is greater. Some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. If any part of this limitation of liability is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the total liability of iquanti and its licensors shall not exceed five hundred dollars ($500). If you are dissatisfied with ALPS or with any of these Terms, or feel iQuanti has breached these Terms, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using ALPS.
10.1 Indemnification by iQuanti. iQuanti will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Client and its affiliates, officers, directors, managers, members, agents and employees from and against any and all third-party claims, losses, damages, actions, demands, liabilities, judgments, penalties, fines, costs or expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ costs and fees, arising out of or in connection with the Software’s infringement or misappropriation of any third party intellectual property rights. The foregoing obligation of iQuanti does not apply (a) to the extent the Software is combined with any non-iQuanti software, processes or materials where the alleged infringement would not have occurred without such combination; (b) where Client’s use of the Software is not for the purposes set forth in this Agreement; or (c) to any infringement or alleged infringement arising from any content, software, information or data provided by Client, end users or any third party, including any Client Data. If any applicable infringement claim is initiated, or, in iQuanti’s reasonable opinion, is likely to be initiated, then iQuanti may, at its option and at its sole cost and expense, (i) modify or replace the infringing part of such products or services so that it is no longer infringing; (ii) procure for Client the right to continue using the infringing part of such products or services; or (iii) if iQuanti can neither acquire the right to continue using nor replace or modify the infringing part of such products or services then remove the infringing part of such products or services. The foregoing in this Section states Client’s sole and exclusive remedy, and iQuanti’s sole liability, with respect to claims of infringement of proprietary rights of any kind.
10.2 Indemnification by Client. Client will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless iQuanti, its licensors, and its and their affiliates, officers, directors, managers, members, agents and employees from and against any and all third party claims, losses, damages, actions, demands, liabilities, judgments, penalties, fines, costs or expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ costs and fees, arising out of or in connection with (a) Client’s access to and use of the Software or Services in a manner not authorized by this Agreement, or in violation of any applicable restrictions or law or (b) Client Data or other materials or the combination thereof with other applications, content or processes, including Third Party Materials.
10.3 Indemnification Process. The indemnifying party shall assume the defense or settlement of any claim with counsel of its choice; provided that the indemnified party shall have the right to participate in the defense or settlement of such claims at their own cost and expense. The indemnifying party shall not consent to entry into judgment or enter into any settlement that admits liability of the indemnified party, provides for injunctive or other non monetary relief affecting the indemnified party, or that does not include as an unconditional term the giving by each claimant or plaintiff to the indemnified party of a release from all liability with respect to such claim without the prior consent of the indemnified party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The indemnifying party’s liability under this Section shall be reduced to the extent that the indemnifying party is actually prejudiced by the indemnified party’s failure to give notice promptly after the indemnified party learns of such claim.
11. CHANGES TO THESE TERMS; TERMINATION. iQuanti reserves the right at any time to modify, alter, or update these Terms. We will notify you of any new or revised Terms by updating the Terms on ALPS including information regarding the location of the new or revised terms and conditions. Your use of ALPS following any changes means that you agree to follow and be bound by the Terms as changed. iQuanti may suspend or terminate your account and/or your ability to use ALPS or any services on ALPS for failure to comply with these Terms, for providing iQuanti with untrue or inaccurate information about yourself, for infringement upon iQuanti’s proprietary rights, or for any other reason whatsoever or for no reason.
Either Party may, by written notice to other Party, terminate these Terms, in whole or in part, in the event that the other Party: (a) materially breaches these Terms and such breach is incapable of cure or, with respect to a material breach capable of cure, the other Party does not cure such breach within thirty days after receipt of written notice of such breach; or (b) terminates or suspends its business activities, becomes insolvent, undertakes liquidation, admits in writing its inability to pay its debts as they mature, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, becomes subject to direct control of a trustee, receiver, or similar authority, or becomes subject to any bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding under federal or state statutes. iQuanti shall have no obligation to maintain or provide any Customer Content after termination.
Upon the termination or expiration of these Terms, you shall: (i) immediately cease using ALPS; (ii) return or (at iQuanti’s option, exercised by written notice to you) destroy all copies, partial or complete and wherever stored or available, of ALPS, and all documentation and other tangible materials, irrespective of media and location; and (iii) certify to iQuanti in writing within one month after such termination or expiration that you have fully complied with subsections (i) and (ii) above. Upon written request by you made within thirty days after the effective date of termination, provided that you have paid in full all good faith undisputed amounts owed to iQuanti, iQuanti will provide you with temporary access to ALPS so that you can retrieve your Customer Content. After such thirty day period, iQuanti shall have no obligation to maintain or provide any Customer Content thereafter.
12. FORCE MAJEURE. Client acknowledges that iQuanti may be interrupted, delayed, or prevented from completing performance of any or all of iQuanti’s obligations under this Agreement due to an occurrence outside of iQuanti’s reasonable control, including fire, flood, explosion, pandemic, natural disaster or act of God, war, riot, terrorist act, malicious attack, action or inaction of government, strike, labor dispute, materials shortage, shortage of adequate power, internet or telecommunications or conduct of third parties (“Force Majeure Event”). iQuanti will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of a Force Majeure Event, but shall not be liable or responsible to Client, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, as a result of a Force Majeure Event.
13. GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New Jersey, without regard to conflicts of laws provisions thereof. The application of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act is expressly excluded. In any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be submitted exclusively to binding arbitration before three (3) arbitrators in New Jersey, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and each party consents to such exclusive forum; provided that nothing herein shall prevent either party from seeking a preliminary injunction or other equitable relief in a judicial proceeding to prevent irreparable harm pending arbitration. EACH PARTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY (a) CONSENTS AND SUBMITS TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THE SPECIFIED FORUMS, AND VENUE THEREIN AND (b) VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES THE RIGHT EITHER MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION BETWEEN THEM BASED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ON THIS AGREEMENT, OR ANY COURSE OF CONDUCT, COURSE OF DEALING, STATEMENTS (WHETHER VERBAL OR WRITTEN) OR ACTIONS OF EITHER PARTY RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.
14. MISCELLANEOUS. In making and performing this Agreement, the parties act and will act at all times as independent contractors and nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed or implied to create the relationship of principal-agent, partner, joint venturer, franchisor-franchisee or employer-employee between the parties. At no time will either party have any right, power or authority to create any obligation or responsibility on behalf of the other party. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their permitted successors and assigns. Client acknowledges that a breach of any of the covenants herein may cause irreparable damage to iQuanti, the exact amount of which would be difficult to ascertain, and that the remedies at law for any such breach or threatened breach would be inadequate. If Client breaches or threatens to breach any of the covenants, in addition to any other available remedies, iQuanti shall be entitled to institute and prosecute proceedings in any court of competent jurisdiction for specific performance and injunctive relief without bond or other security or a showing that monetary damages will not provide an adequate remedy. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter, and supersedes any and all prior oral or written communications, proposals, representations, and agreements. It may be amended only by mutual written agreement signed by both parties. Any attempted amendment in violation of this Section shall be void. In the event of any conflicts or inconsistencies, the following order of precedence shall apply, but only with respect to the specific subject matter of each: (a) Order Form and (b) the Statement of Work then (c) this Agreement (for the avoidance of doubt, where a Statement of Work includes additional and more specific terms and conditions with respect to a concept addressed generally in this Agreement or does not address a concept addressed herein, no conflict shall be deemed to exist). The waiver or failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided under this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such right in the future or a waiver of any other rights established under this Agreement. Should any term or provision of this Agreement be held to any extent unenforceable, invalid, or prohibited under law, then such provision shall be deemed restated to reflect the original intention of the parties as nearly as possible in accordance with applicable law and the remainder of this Agreement. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, including by electronic delivery, each of which shall be deemed to be an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument. This Agreement may not be assigned by Client. Any attempted assignment in violation of this Section shall be void.
Service Levels Agreement
1. Service Availability. The Software shall be available 95% of the time measured on a monthly basis.
2. Problem Assistance. iQuanti shall provide to Client, during iQuanti support hours, except for United States holidays, commercially reasonable efforts in solving Errors reported by Client. “Errors” shall mean failures of the latest release of the Software that is generally available to iQuanti’s other customers to substantially perform in accordance with the documentation. Client shall provide to iQuanti reasonably detailed documentation and explanation, together with underlying data, to substantiate any Error and to assist iQuanti in its efforts to diagnose, reproduce and correct the Error. All service requests filed in the iQuanti system are assigned a priority level based on the impact of the issue. Client determines the priority level when placing a service ticket, but iQuanti may change the priority level after initial contact and assessment of the issue.
The following table defines the priority levels and the initial response time from Support.
|Urgent Response Time – 4 Business Hours||Mission critical systems are down with no workaround immediately available.|
|High Response Time – 6 business Hours||Major Functionality is severely impaired.|
|Medium Response Time – 1 business Day||Partial, non-critical loss of functionality of the software.|
|Low Response Time – 3 Business Days||General usage questions.|
3. Service Credits
- Service Credit. As Client’s sole and exclusive remedy, and iQuanti’s entire liability, for failure to comply with the requirements set forth in this Exhibit A, one (1) additional day of Service (“Service Credit”) will be given to Client upon each occurrence of an incident resulting in a period of four (4) consecutive hours of unscheduled downtime for the Software; provided that no more than one such credit will accrue per occurrence. Service Credits may not be redeemed for cash. Downtime will begin to accrue as soon as Client notifies iQuanti that downtime is taking place and iQuanti confirms such downtime, and continues until the availability of the Software is restored.
- Notification. Client must notify iQuanti within two (2) business days from the time Client becomes eligible to receive a Service Credit. Failure to comply with this requirement will forfeit Client’s rights to receive a Service Credit. Service Credits may be used solely for future payments due for the particular Software or failure of other obligations for which the Service Credits are issued. The Service Credits may not be sold or transferred to other parties. Service Credits may not be used until any Client violations of the Agreement are resolved to iQuanti’s reasonable satisfaction.
4. Exclusions and Exceptions. Service availability and Client’s entitlement to Service Credits do not apply to the following circumstances: (a) to the performance of Internet networks or other issues controlled by entities other than iQuanti or traffic exchange points that are controlled by entities other than iQuanti, including any issues arising from a third-party hosting provider; (b) to any connections or equipment of Client that are not iQuanti -managed and are used by Client to access the Software; (c) where the Software is unavailable or delayed as a result of the negligence or acts or omissions of Client, its employees, contractors, agents or any of its customers, including Client’s breach of this Agreement; (d) iQuanti or its third party service providers performing reasonable scheduled maintenance or critical maintenance; or (e) where Software is unavailable as a result of circumstances or causes beyond the reasonable control of iQuanti, including Client Data or any force majeure. Client acknowledges that a stabilization period will occur after the go-live date of the initial system and any upgrade (“Stabilization Period”). During the Stabilization Period, Client and the implementation team will resolve remaining implementation issues. The Stabilization Period will be for a period of five (5) days. Client and iQuanti agree that iQuanti will not be liable for payment of performance credits to Client for any Service Level Default incurred during the Stabilization Period.
