2. TERM & TERMINATION.
a. Term. Use of the Products and the rights and license granted herein is valid for the term specified in the applicable Order (“Initial Order Term”). With respect to any Products provided un an applicable Order, the term for such Products will automatically renew for additional periods equal to the same duration as the Initial Order Term, unless either party notifies the other party of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then current Order Term; such Initial Order Term and any subsequent extension(s) collectively referred to herein as the (“Order Term”). Upon completion of the Initial Term or any renewal Order Term, fees for each subsequent renewal Order Term shall increase as follows: (i) for 1-year Order Terms: ten percent (10%); (ii) for 2-year Order Terms: twelve and one-half percent (12.5%); and (iii) for 3-year Order Terms: fifteen percent (15%).
b. Termination. LUMIFI may immediately terminate Customer use of Products without liability to Customer for (i) failure to pay any amount due hereunder and failure to cure within ten (10) days following written notice thereof; (ii) any actual or suspected violation of any provision of these Terms and Conditions and failure to cure within thirty (30) days following written notice thereof; or (iii) dissolves, liquidates, becomes insolvent, ceases conducting business in the ordinary course, makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, and/or becomes subject to voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or liquidation proceedings. Customer may discontinue use of Products at any time; however, (i) such action will not be deemed a termination of these Terms and Conditions or any associated payment obligations; (ii) these Terms and Conditions shall continue to apply until the end of the then-current Order Term; (iii) Customer will remain obligated to pay any outstanding fees pursuant to section 3(a) and the applicable Order; and (iv) LUMIFI may accelerate Customer’s unpaid payments or fees so that all such payment obligations become immediately due and payable. Customer may immediately terminate this agreement if LUMIFI is in material breach of the limited warranty provided in Section 5(a) and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days following written notice thereof.
c. Effects of Termination; Survival. Upon termination of an Order, all rights and licenses granted hereunder in respect of the applicable Products shall cease, and Customer shall be liable for all unpaid sums due under the applicable Order to the end of the Order Term. Upon termination of an Order, each party shall promptly return to the other, or destroy and certify in writing to the other that it has destroyed, the original and all copies, in whole or in part, in any form, all Confidential Information of the other party disclosed under the Order. Upon termination of an Order, the provisions of these Terms and Conditions (other than Customer’s right to use any Products and associated Documentation described in such Order) which should survive shall survive.
3. Fees and Payments
a. Fees and Payments. Customer agrees to pay the fees for the Products in accordance with the applicable Order. Customer authorizes LUMIFI to conduct automatic debits of Customer’s designated bank account for such fees as they become payable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, LUMIFI may invoice Customer for any applicable, outstanding fees, and Customer shall pay such invoice within fifteen (15) days of receipt thereof. Interest shall accrue on past due amounts at the rate of the lesser of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate of interest allowed by law, calculated from the date such amount was due until the date that payment is received by LUMIFI.
b. Automatic Debits. When Customer places an Order for Products, Customer authorizes LUMIFI and its designated payment processors to store Customer’s designated bank account information and other related information. Customer authorizes LUMIFI to automatically debit all applicable charges for such Products from Customer’s designated payment account, including via ACH debit for bank accounts on the date such charges become due. This authorization to initiate ACH debit transactions will remain in full force and effect until LUMIFI has received written notice revoking such authority from Customer by email at [email protected] at least thirty days (30) in advance of the date the applicable charges for the Products become due. Because these are electronic transactions, these funds may be withdrawn from Customer’s designated bank account immediately. In the case of an ACH debit transaction that is rejected for insufficient funds, Customer understands that LUMIFI may at its discretion attempt to process the debit in the amount of the applicable paid product again within thirty (30) days and LUMIFI may separately impose a fee of $25 for each transaction returned for insufficient funds, as permitted by applicable law. Customer certifies that it has all rights necessary as an authorized user of Customer’s bank account and Customer will not dispute these scheduled transactions with such bank so long as the transactions correspond to this Agreement, the applicable Order, and/or any other applicable terms for such Product.
c. Fee Disputes. Customer must notify LUMIFI in writing if Customer disputes any portion of any fees paid or payable by Customer under this agreement or any Order. Customer must provide written notice to LUMIFI within thirty (30) days of the applicable charge and LUMIFI will work together with Customer to resolve the applicable dispute promptly. If customer does not provide LUMIFI with written notice of Customer’s fee dispute within this thirty (30) day period, Customer will not be entitled to dispute any fees paid or payable by Customer.
d. Taxes. All amounts and fees stated or referred to in this agreement or any Order are exclusive of taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer shall be responsible for payment of all Taxes and any related interest and/or penalties resulting from any payments made hereunder, other than taxes based on LUMIFI’s net income.
e. Audit and Attestation. Customer agrees to keep accurate books and records detailing its use of the Products. On a quarterly basis, LUMIFI shall have the right to inspect and audit (i) Customer’s systems; and (ii) such books of account and records to verify Customer’s use of the Products in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions. LUMIFI may require Customer to complete an annual attestation of its access and use of the Products, and LUMIFI may also use monitoring functionality in the Products that reports data to LUMIFI regarding Customer’s access and use. If any audit and/or attestation reveals unauthorized use, reproduction, distribution, or other unauthorized exploitation of the Products, then, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to LUMIFI under these Terms and Conditions or pursuant to applicable law, Customer will promptly pay LUMIFI all additional fees associated with such contrary use of the applicable Products.
a. Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means the terms of any Order and all confidential and proprietary information of LUMIFI or Customer, including without limitation all business plans, product plans, financial information, software, designs, formulas, methods, know-how, processes, materials provided to Customer in the course of using the Products, and technical, business and financial data of any nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, any marketing, pricing and other information regarding the Products), which may be designated as being confidential or which, under the circumstances surround disclosure, ought to be treated as confidential. Confidential Information shall not include information that is (i) rightfully in the receiving party’s possession without obligation of confidentiality prior to receipt from the disclosing party; (ii) a matter of public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; (iii) rightfully furnished to the receiving party by a third party without restriction on disclosure or use; or (iv) independently developed by the receiving party without use of or reference to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. Each party shall (i) use Confidential Information of the other party only for the purposes of exercising rights or performing obligations in connection with an Order and use by the Customer of the Products, and (ii) use at least the same degree of care as such party employs with respect to its own Confidential Information of a like-kind nature, but in no case less than a commercially reasonable standard of care to maintain confidentially and to protect from disclosure to any third parties any Confidential Information disclosed by the other party. The obligation with respect to Confidential Information shall continue for a period from the date hereof until three (3) years following the termination date of all Orders for Customer’s use of any Products, provided, however, that Confidential Information that constitutes, contains or reveals, in whole or in part, LUMIFI proprietary rights or trade secrets shall not be disclosed by Customer at any time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a receiving party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to a valid order of a court or authorized government agency provided that the receiving party has given the disclosing party prompt notice, to the extent legally permissible, so that the disclosing party will have an opportunity to defend, limit or protect against such disclosure. Upon expiration of each Order, the receiving party agrees to return or destroy any and all Confidential Information disclosed by the other party pursuant to that Order.
b. References. LUMIFI may identify Customer and its logo in sales and marketing materials as a customer unless and until Customer expressly objects in writing.
c. Performance Tests. Customer may not disclose the results of any performance tests or analysis of a Product (including benchmarking) to any third party without LUMIFI’s prior written approval.
5. LIMITED WARRANTY.
a. Limited Warranty and Remedies. During an Order Term, LUMIFI shall provide the Products described in the applicable Order in conformance in all material respects to the Order and the Documentation for the Products. Customer must notify LUMIFI of any breach of its limited warranty within ten (10) days after the date on which such breach first occurs.

b. Disclaimer and Exclusions. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN SECTION 5(a) ABOVE, LUMIFI (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, RESELLERS, SUBCONTRACTORS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS) PROVIDES PRODUCTS “AS IS” AND MAKES NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, WRITTEN OR ORAL, AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES ARE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, ERROR FREE OPERATION OR NON-INTRUSION DUE TO HACKING OR OTHER SIMILAR MEANS OF UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, ANY WARRANTY RELATING TO THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS OR THIRD-PARTY SERVICES, AND ANY WARRANTY ARISING BY STATUTE, OPERATION OF LAW, COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE. LUMIFI DOES NOT GUARANTY THAT (I) THE PRODUCTS WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED OR THAT LUMIFI WILL CORRECT ALL ERRORS, (II) THE PRODUCTS WILL OPERATE IN COMBINATION WITH CUSTOMER’S CONTENT, APPLICATIONS, HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, SYSTEMS, SERVICES OR DATA NOT PROVIDED BY LUMIFI, (III) THE PRODUCTS WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS, SPECIFICATIONS OR EXPECTATIONS.

LUMIFI IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ISSUES RELATED TO THE PERFORMANCE, OPERATION OR SECURITY OF THE PRODUCTS THAT ARISE FROM CUSTOMER’S CONTENT, CUSTOMER’S OPERATING ENVIRONMENT, CUSTOMER’S APPLICATIONS OR THIRD-PARTY CONTENT. NOTHING HEREIN IS INTENDED TO CONSTITUTE OR CREATE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY BY LUMIFI TO ANY THIRD PARTY, (INCLUDING END USERS), DIRECTLY OR AS A THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY, WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCTS.
c. Limitation on Direct Damages. LUMIFI’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY (INCLUDING THE LIABILITY OF ANY AFFILIATE, SUPPLIER, SUBCONTRACTOR, EMPLOYEE OR AGENT OF LUMIFI), AND CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY CLAIM OF ANY TYPE WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PRODUCT, SHALL BE LIMITED TO PROVEN DIRECT DAMAGES CAUSED BY LUMIFI IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER FOR THE SPECIFIC PRODUCT FROM WHICH SUCH CLAIM ARISES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM HEREUNDER. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING OR ANYTHING ELSE HEREIN, NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT WILL LIMIT CUSTOMER’S LIABILITY FOR PAYMENT OF FEES OR EACH PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS.
d. No Indirect Damages. NEITHER CUSTOMER NOR LUMIFI (INCLUDING THEIR RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS) SHALL HAVE LIABILITY TO THE OTHER FOR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUES, INCOME, SAVINGS, BUSINESS, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY, OR USE, INABILITY TO USE, LOSS, INTERRUPTION, DELAY OR RECOVERY OF ANY DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY),;
e. Limitation Period. Neither party may institute any action in any form arising out of an Order more than eighteen (18) months after the cause of action accrues, or in the case of nonpayment, more than two (2) years after the date of last payment.
f. Enforceability. The foregoing limitations, exclusions and disclaimers shall apply, regardless of whether the claim for such damages is based in contract, warranty, strict liability, negligence, tort or otherwise. Insofar as applicable law prohibits any limitation herein, the parties agree that such limitation will be automatically modified, but only to the extent so as to make the limitation permitted to the fullest extent possible under such law. The parties agree that the limitations on liabilities set forth herein are agreed allocations or risk constituting in part the consideration for LUMIFI’s provision of Products, and such limitations will apply notwithstanding the failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy and even if a party has been advised of the possibility of such liabilities.
a. Lumifi Indemnification. LUMIFI shall (i) defend, indemnify and hold Customer and its officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from and against all claims and causes of action arising out of a third-party claim that any Products and the related materials (excluding third-party products) infringe an enforceable United States patent or copyright, and (ii) pay the resulting costs and damages finally awarded against Customer in respect of any such infringement by a court of competent jurisdiction or the amounts stated in a written settlement signed by LUMIFI.
