6.1. Confidential Information Definition. "Confidential Information" means non-public information disclosed orally or in writing by a party (Discloser) to the other party (Recipient), including but not limited to information about its business, finances, customers, operations, products, technology or plans, that is designated as confidential or reasonably should be considered confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of its disclosure. Customer’s Confidential Information includes, without limitation, the Customer Data. OwnBackup’s Confidential Information includes, without limitation, the Services and their pricing.
6.2. Protection of Confidential Information. Recipient will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own information of a like nature, but in no event less than reasonable care, (a) not to use Discloser’s Confidential Information for a purpose inconsistent with the activities contemplated under this Agreement, and (b) to limit access to Discloser’s Confidential Information to those of Recipient’s and its Affiliates’ employees, directors, contractors, advisors and auditors who need such access for activities contemplated under this Agreement and who are legally or contractually bound to protect the Confidential Information as provided in this section. Confidential Information excludes information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of a duty owed to Discloser, (ii) was known to Recipient before its disclosure hereunder without breach of a duty owed to Discloser, (iii) is received from a third party without breach of a duty owed to Discloser, or (iv) is independently developed by Recipient without use of Discloser’s Confidential Information.
6.3. Requests for Confidential Information. If Recipient receives a government or other third-party request for Discloser’s Confidential Information (including but not limited to Customer Data), Recipient will direct the requestor to, and promptly so notify, Discloser if legally permitted to do so. Recipient will comply with such a third-party request only if so required by law; in such event, Recipient will seek to limit the disclosure to that Confidential Information which it is required by law to disclose.
6.4 Data Security.

On request, OwnBackup will provide to Customer its SOC 2 type 2 independent audit report, ISO 27001 and 27701 certifications, Standardized Information Gathering (SIG) and Cloud Security Alliance Consensus Assessment Initiative (CSA CAIQ) questionnaires, and summary penetration test reports, which shall be considered responsive to Customer requests for OwnBackup security information.

6.6. Data Breach. If OwnBackup becomes aware of an unauthorized access to or disclosure, loss or alteration of Customer Data, OwnBackup will promptly notify Customer, seek to mitigate the breach and preserve forensic evidence, and provide information to Customer about the nature and scope of the breach.
7. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
7.1. Ownership and Use Rights. As between the parties, Customer solely owns the Customer Data, including all intellectual property rights therein, and OwnBackup and its licensors solely own the Services, including their underlying software, interfaces and architecture, and all intellectual property rights therein. Customer grants OwnBackup the right to use the Customer Data solely to perform its obligations under this Agreement and reserves all rights in the Customer Data not expressly granted to OwnBackup. OwnBackup grants Customer the right to use the Services solely as described in this Agreement, Order Forms and the Documentation, and reserves all rights not expressly granted to Customer.
7.2. Restrictions. Customer may not (a) make a Service available to, or use a Service for the benefit of, anyone other than Customer, (b) sell, resell, license, sublicense, distribute, rent or lease any Service, or include any Service in a service bureau or outsourcing offering, (c) use a Service to store or transmit material in violation of privacy rights, intellectual property rights or applicable law, (d) use a Service to store or transmit malware, (e) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of any Service, (f) attempt to gain unauthorized access to a Service, its related systems or networks, or third-party data contained therein, (g) reverse engineer or decompile a Service (to the extent such restriction is permitted by law), or (h) access a Service to build a competitive service or product, or copy any feature, function or graphic for competitive purposes. OwnBackup may suspend Services to Customer if OwnBackup believes in good faith that Customer’s use of a Service poses an imminent threat to the security, availability or legality of the Services. OwnBackup will work with Customer beforehand to avoid such suspension to the extent practicable, and in the event of such suspension will work with Customer to address the issue and restore Services as quickly as possible.
7.3. Third-Party Services. OwnBackup’s Services depend on the continuing availability of, and access to, the Third-Party Services, including application programming interfaces. If a Third-Party Service for which Customer has purchased OwnBackup’s Services ceases to be available on reasonable terms for interoperation with OwnBackup’s Services (other than due to a temporary issue or Customer’s act or omission), then Customer may terminate the affected Order Forms and OwnBackup will refund to Customer any prepaid and unused fees on a pro rata basis. Customer must purchase Third-Party Services separately. Customer acknowledges that Customer Data will be copied from the Third-Party Services to OwnBackup’s Services, that Third-Party Service providers are not responsible for the privacy, security or integrity of such copies of Customer Data in OwnBackup’s Services, and that those copies of Customer Data are instead covered by the protections in this Agreement. OwnBackup’s Services may automatically query Customer’s Third-Party Service accounts for the sole purpose of validating the purchased quantity of OwnBackup’s Services.
8. TERM AND TERMINATION
8.1. Term of this Agreement. This Agreement continues until the 30th day after all Order Forms have expired, unless earlier terminated as provided below.
8.2. Term of Order Forms. Each Order Form shall specify an order term. Except as provided in an Order Form, (a) a party may cancel the Order Form at the end of the order term (the “Renewal Date”) by so notifying the other party 30 or more days before the Renewal Date, (b) if no such notice is given, then on the Renewal Date the Order Form and all subscriptions under it will renew for an additional year, (c) in any such renewal, the Order Form terms will remain unchanged from the prior term except for any pricing increase of which OwnBackup has notified Customer 60 or more days before the Renewal Date, which increase will not exceed 7% over the per-unit pricing in the prior term unless the prior pricing was clearly designated in the Order Form as promotional or one-time, and (d) the Order Form will continue to renew until canceled in accordance with this section.
8.3. Termination for Material Breach. If either party is in material breach of this Agreement, the other party may terminate this Agreement, together with all Order Forms, at the end of a written 30-day notice and cure period, if the breach has not been cured.
8.4. Return of Customer Data. Within 15 days after termination, upon written request OwnBackup will make the Services available for Customer to export Customer Data at no additional charge. After such 15-day period, OwnBackup will have no obligation to maintain the Customer Data and will destroy the Customer Data unless otherwise required by law.
8.5. Effect of Termination. If this Agreement is terminated for OwnBackup’s breach, OwnBackup will refund fees prepaid by Customer, prorated for the remaining term of outstanding Order Forms after the termination date. If this Agreement is terminated for Customer’s breach, Customer will pay any unpaid fees for the term of all Order Forms. Upon request following any termination of this Agreement, each party will destroy or return all copies of the other party’s Confidential Information that it holds, subject to its regular backup retention processes and Section 8.4 (Return of Customer Data) above.
8.6. Survival of Terms. Any terms that by their nature survive termination of this Agreement for a party to assert its rights and receive the protections of this Agreement, will survive (including, without limitation, the confidentiality and ownership terms in this Agreement).
9. LIABILITY LIMIT
9.1. Exclusion of Indirect Damages. To the maximum extent allowed by law, neither party will be liable for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages or losses arising out of or related to this Agreement (including, without limitation, lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, or costs of delay).
9.2. Total Liability Limit. To the maximum extent allowed by law, neither party’s total, aggregate liability arising out of or related to this Agreement will exceed the amount paid by Customer within the 12 months before the first incident out of which the liability arose.
9.3. Increased Liability Limit if Advanced Security Features are Used. Notwithstanding the above, Section 9.2 (Total Liability Limit) will not apply to any breach by OwnBackup of its security, confidentiality or privacy obligations regarding Customer Data while the Advanced Security Features are enabled and in use in Customer’s applicable Service instance(s), provided in no event will OwnBackup's total, aggregate liability for such breaches exceed two times the amount paid by Customer within the 12 months before the breach. "Advanced Security Features" means Advanced Key Management, IP range restrictions, and either multi-factor authentication or single sign-on, in each case to the extent available from OwnBackup for the applicable Services.
9.4. Conditions. The above exclusions and liability limits reflect the parties’ allocation of risk and apply under any legal theory (including, without limitation, contract or tort), even where a party was aware of the possibility of such damages, the damages were foreseeable, and/or any remedies hereunder fail of their essential purpose. The above exclusions and limits do not limit Customer’s payment obligations under Order Forms.
OwnBackup will defend Customer against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding against Customer alleging that use of the Services in accordance with this Agreement infringes or misappropriates a third party’s intellectual property rights (a "Claim"), and will indemnify and hold harmless Customer from and against any damages, attorney fees and costs awarded against Customer as a result of, or for amounts paid by Customer in settlement of, a Claim, provided Customer (a) promptly notifies OwnBackup of the Claim, (b) gives OwnBackup sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim (except OwnBackup may not settle a Claim unless Customer is unconditionally released of all liability), and (c) gives OwnBackup all reasonable assistance at OwnBackup’s expense. If Customer’s use of the Service is enjoined, OwnBackup shall (or if OwnBackup receives information about a potential or actual Claim, OwnBackup may), at no cost to Customer (i) modify the Service without breaching OwnBackup’s warranties above, (ii) obtain a license for Customer’s continued use of the Service in accordance with this Agreement, or if options (i) and (ii) are not reasonably available to OwnBackup, (iii) terminate the applicable Order Forms and refund Customer all fees prepaid for the remainder of the term of such Order Forms after the termination date. OwnBackup’s obligations in this section do not apply if (1) the allegation does not specify that the Services are the basis of the Claim, or (2) a Claim arises from the use or combination of Services or any part thereof with software, hardware, data, or processes not provided by OwnBackup, if the Services or use thereof would not infringe without such combination. This section states OwnBackup’s sole liability and Customer’s exclusive remedy for infringement.
