2.2. Service Levels. CaseReady shall provide the remedies listed in the SLA for any failure of the System listed in the SLA. Such remedies are Customer’s sole remedy for any failure of the System, and Customer recognizes and agrees that if the SLA does not list a remedy for a given failure, it has no remedy.

CaseReady shall have no obligation to maintain any Customer Data except during the Term (as such obligation is otherwise limited in this Agreement). Customer agrees and acknowledges that CaseReady has no obligation to retain Customer’s data and that Customer’s data may be irretrievably deleted at the end of the Term.

CUSTOMER RECOGNIZES AND AGREES THAT: (a) CASEREADY HAS NO LIABILITY FOR ANY FAILURE TO PROVIDE PROTECTIONS SET FORTH IN THE EXCLUDED DATA LAWS OR OTHERWISE TO PROTECT EXCLUDED DATA; AND (b) CASEREADY’S SYSTEMS ARE NOT INTENDED FOR MANAGEMENT OR PROTECTION OF EXCLUDED DATA AND MAY NOT PROVIDE ADEQUATE OR LEGALLY REQUIRED SECURITY FOR EXCLUDED DATA.

5. CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITIES & RESTRICTIONS.

In the event that it suspects any breach of the requirements of this Section 5.1, including without limitation by Users, CaseReady may suspend Customer’s access to the System without advanced notice, in addition to such other remedies as CaseReady may have. Neither this Agreement nor the AUP requires that CaseReady take any action against Customer or any User or other third party for violating the AUP, this Section 5.1, or this Agreement, but CaseReady is free to take any such action it sees fit.
5.2. Unauthorized Access. Customer shall take reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized access to the System, including without limitation by protecting its passwords and other log-in information. Customer shall notify CaseReady immediately of any known or suspected unauthorized use of the System or breach of its security and shall use best efforts to stop said breach.

Customer recognizes that the System and its components are protected by copyright and other laws and shall at all times comply with the same.
6.2. Feedback. CaseReady has not agreed to and does not agree to treat as confidential any Feedback (as defined below) Customer or Users provide to CaseReady, and nothing in this Agreement or in the parties’ dealings arising out of or related to this Agreement will restrict CaseReady’s right to use, profit from, disclose, publish, keep secret, or otherwise exploit Feedback, without compensating or crediting Customer or the User in question. Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 7 below, Feedback will not be considered Confidential Information.

7. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. “Confidential Information” refers to the following items CaseReady discloses to Customer: (a) any document CaseReady marks “Confidential”; (b) any information CaseReady orally designates as “Confidential” at the time of disclosure, provided CaseReady confirms such designation in writing within ten (10) business days; (c) the Documentation, whether or not marked or designated “Confidential;” and (d) any other nonpublic, sensitive information disclosed by CaseReady, whether or not marked or designated as “Confidential.” Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is in Customer’s possession at the time of disclosure; (ii) is independently developed by Customer without use of or reference to Confidential Information; (iii) becomes known publicly, before or after disclosure, other than as a result of Customer’s improper action or inaction; or (iv) is approved for release in writing by CaseReady.

Customer shall promptly notify CaseReady of any misuse or misappropriation of Confidential Information that comes to Customer’s attention. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer may disclose Confidential Information as required by applicable law or by proper legal or governmental authority. Customer shall give CaseReady prompt notice of any such legal or governmental demand and reasonably cooperate with CaseReady in any effort to seek a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure, at CaseReady’s expense.
7.2. Injunction. Customer agrees that breach of this Article 7 would cause CaseReady irreparable injury, for which monetary damages would not provide adequate compensation, and that in addition to any other remedy, CaseReady will be entitled to injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach, without proving actual damage or posting a bond or other security.
7.3. Retention of Rights. This Agreement does not transfer ownership of Confidential Information or grant a license thereto. CaseReady will retain all right, title, and interest in and to all Confidential Information.
8. REPRESENTATIONS & WARRANTIES.
8.1. From CaseReady. CaseReady represents and warrants that it is the owner of the System and of each and every component thereof, or the recipient of a valid license thereto, and that it has and will maintain the full power and authority to grant the rights to use the System set forth in this Agreement without the further consent of any third party.

8.2. From Customer.

9. INDEMNIFICATION. Customer shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless CaseReady and the CaseReady Associates (as defined below) against any “Indemnified Claim,” meaning any third party claim, suit, or proceeding arising out of or related to Customer's alleged or actual use of, misuse of, or failure to use the System, including without limitation: (a) claims by Users or by Customer's employees; (b) claims related to unauthorized disclosure or exposure of personally identifiable information or other private information, including Customer Data; (c) claims related to infringement or violation of a copyright, trademark, trade secret, or privacy or confidentiality right by written material, images, logos or other content uploaded to the System through Customer’s account, including without limitation by Customer Data; and

Indemnified Claims include, without limitation, claims arising out of or related to CaseReady’s negligence. Customer’s obligations set forth in this Article 9 include retention and payment of attorneys and payment of court costs, as well as settlement at Customer’s expense and payment of judgments. CaseReady will have the right, not to be exercised unreasonably, to reject any settlement or compromise that requires that it admit wrongdoing or liability or subjects it to any ongoing affirmative obligations. (The “CaseReady Associates” are CaseReady’s officers, directors, shareholders, parents, subsidiaries, agents, successors, and assigns.)
10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
10.1. Liquidated Damages. CUSTOMER SPECIFICALLY AGREES THAT THE LIMIT OF CASEREADY’S CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT AND ITS OBLIGATIONS HEREIN WILL NOT EXCEED FIFTY DOLLARS ($50).

12.4. Assignment & Successors. Customer may not assign this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations hereunder without CaseReady’s express written consent. Except to the extent forbidden in this Section 12.4, this Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties’ respective successors and assigns.
12.5. Severability.

12.6. No Waiver. Neither party will be deemed to have waived any of its rights under this Agreement by lapse of time or by any statement or representation other than by an authorized representative in an explicit written waiver.
