2. LICENSE AND SUPPORT SUBSCRIPTION
2.1 Magento Software License Grant.

2.4 Modifications by Licensee. Magento also grants Licensee the right to create Modifications to the Software. Licensee may contribute the IP Rights in any of those Modifications back to Magento. Licensee may contact Magento for more information regarding contributions of derivative works rights to Magento. Regardless of whether Licensee contributes such IP Rights to Magento, Licensee hereby grants to Magento, a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, (irrespective of the expiration or termination of this Agreement) worldwide, fully paid-up license (with rights to sublicense through multiple tiers of sublicensees) in such IP Rights to reproduce, create derivative works of, modify, use, distribute, perform, display, make, have made, sell, offer to sell, import and otherwise exploit any Modifications. To the extent that the foregoing license is not enforceable, Licensee hereby irrevocably waives and agrees to never assert such IP Rights, or any other right in such Modifications, against Magento or its direct or indirect sublicensees.
2.5 Third Party Access. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Licensee may permit a third party to access the Magento Software solely in connection with the development or operation of Licensee’s Sites; provided, that (i) the third party is bound by a valid and enforceable written agreement with Licensee, at least as protective of Magento as this Agreement, to access and use the Magento Software solely as needed to provide the contracted services to Licensee in connection with the applicable Sites; (ii) such third party has agreed to the terms of Section 2.4 or substantially similar language granting Licensee or Magento the same rights to any Modifications made by such third party; and (iii) Licensee shall be responsible for all acts and omissions by such third party as if they were Licensee’s acts and omissions. Upon Magento’s request, Licensee will provide Magento a list of such third parties.
2.6 Government Licensees. The Magento Software licensed under this Agreement is “commercial computer software” as that term is defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) at FAR 2.101, and is comprised of commercial computer software and commercial computer software documentation (collectively, the “Commercial Software”). If the Commercial Software is licensed or acquired by or on behalf of a civilian agency of the U.S. Government, the U.S. Government’s rights to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose the Commercial Software are as set forth in this Agreement, consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Computer Software) of the FAR and any successor regulation. If acquired by or on behalf of any agency within the Department of Defense (“DOD”), the U.S. Government’s rights to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose the Commercial Software are as set forth in this Agreement, consistent with 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 of the DOD FAR Supplement (“DFARS”) and any successor regulation. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, in a case of contradiction between this Government Licensees clause and any other FAR, DFARS, or other clause or provisions that address Government rights in the Commercial Software that may be included in any other agreement under which the Commercial Software is licensed or acquired, this Government Licensees clause will prevail.
2.7 Analytics Data.
2.7.1 Grant of Access to Analytics Data. Licensee shall do at least one of the following with respect to Analytics Data:
(a) add Magento as a sub-account to Licensee’s Google Analytics account; or

2.7.2 Magento may from time to time specify other Analytics Data services or analytics products, software or technologies that perform the same or similar functions as Google Analytics and New Relic. Notwithstanding Section 8.1, Licensee shall comply with any such new data analytics requirements as directed by Magento.
2.7.3 Data License. Licensee hereby grants Magento a non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, royalty-free right and license to use all data (including Analytics Data and any unique account identifiers) provided to Magento by Licensee, or at Licensee’s direction, for the purposes of (i) providing Support Services and other services to Licensee; (ii) improving the Magento Software; (iii) performing analyses related to the Magento Software and Licensee’s use of the Magento Software. The foregoing license includes the right for Magento to develop and publish or otherwise make available broadly applicable insights regarding aggregated data from multiple Magento Software licensees, but only when the Analytics Data has been aggregated or de-identified so that such insights cannot reasonably be used to identify Licensee’s Visitors.
3. PRIVACY AND DATA SECURITY

(a) all sharing of Analytics Data, Transaction Data or any other information, including Personal Information, with Magento is done in compliance with all applicable Privacy and Data Security Laws;
(b) if it maintains a Site, it places a conspicuous notice thereon instructing Visitors how to express choices with respect to the use of Personal Information for marketing or analytic purposes;
(c) it provides notice to its Visitors in Licensee’s consumer facing privacy notice as well as elsewhere on the Site that Analytics Data and Transaction Data will be collected from Visitors to Licensee’s Sites and shared with Magento;

4. RESTRICTIONS AND OWNERSHIP
4.1 Restrictions. Except as expressly authorized herein, Licensee shall not:
4.1.1 distribute, sublicense, disclose, market, rent, lease, resell, offer remote computing services, networking, or batch processing, transfer the Magento Software to any third party, or permit any person or entity to have access to the Magento Software by means of time sharing, remote computing services, networking, batch processing, service bureau or a time sharing arrangement; or
4.1.2 provide, use, or allow others to use, the Magento Software, including any source code, for the benefit of third parties.
4.2 No License to Magento Marks. No license, right or interest in any Magento trademarks, trade names or service marks is granted hereunder.
4.3 Domain Restrictions. Licensee shall not use the Magento Software on more than five (5) Unique Domains. Licensee shall notify Magento immediately upon the launch of each Unique Domain.
4.4 Ownership of Magento Software. As between Magento and Licensee, Magento owns all right, title and interest in and to (a) all copies of the Magento Software (including all Updates thereto), and (b) all IP Rights related to or embodied in each of the foregoing, whether such rights are registered or unregistered and wherever in the world those rights may exist. There are no implied licenses to IP Rights in this Agreement. All rights not granted hereunder are expressly reserved by Magento.
4.5 Open Source Software. Licensee acknowledges that the Software includes various open source software, including the Open Source Software, which is governed by the applicable license terms thereof. The Open Source Software provided under such license agreements is subject to the provisions of such license agreements and not this Agreement, except as expressly provided herein.
5. FEES AND PAYMENT
5.1 Subscription Fee. Licensee shall pay Magento a non-refundable and non-cancellable Subscription Fee in consideration for the Magento Software licenses granted under the Agreement. Such Subscription Fee shall be payable in accordance with the terms of the Order Form and this Agreement.
5.2 Gross Merchandise Value, Average Order Value, and Subscription Fee adjustments. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Subscription Fees specified in the Order Form are based on the GMV Threshold and AOV Threshold provided by Licensee prior or on the Effective Date and that the Subscription Fees may be subject to adjustments into higher Subscription Fee tiers, if the actual GMV is higher than the GMV Threshold for any Contract Year during the Term. If the Licensee’s actual GMV for any given Contract Year is higher than the GMV Threshold as specified on the Order Form, the Subscription Fees will be adjusted to the respective higher applicable Subscription Fee tier by increasing the Subscription Fee by the percentage set forth in the applicable row and line of the Subscription Fee Adjustment Table in the Order Form for the full then-current Contract Year (for the avoidance of doubt, the then-current Contract Year is the Contract Year immediately following the Contract Year during which the GMV was higher than the GMV Threshold as specified on the Order Form.) No downward adjustments to lower Subscription Fee tiers will be made under the Agreement, independent of the actual GMV. In addition, Magento has the right to increase the Subscription Fees by no more than five percent (5%) once during each Contract Year, beginning with the first anniversary of the Effective Date. Each such adjustment, if any, is effective for the full duration of the Contract Year for which such adjustment was executed and the adjusted Subscription Fee becomes the Subscription Fee under the Agreement.
5.3 Provision of GMV and AOV information. Licensee shall provide Magento written certification of Licensee’s then-current GMV and AOV (a) no later than within ten (10) days after the last day of each and every Contract Year and (b) upon receipt of written request by Magento during any Contract Year.
5.4 Audit Rights. In addition to Licensee’s obligation set forth in Section 3, Magento reserves the right, no more than once per Contract Year and for a period of two (2) years after each Contract Year, to audit Licensee’s use of the Magento Services and Software and for the purpose of verifying any payments due under this Agreement for the preceding year, including, for the avoidance of doubt, any financial records related to GMV and AOV on its own or through an auditor selected by Magento (the “Auditor”) during normal business hours and with reasonable but not less than fifteen (15) days’ written notice. All information and materials made available to or otherwise obtained by the Auditor in connection with such audit shall be deemed Licensee’s confidential information. If the audit shows that payments made by Licensee are deficient, Magento may adjust the Subscription Fees in accordance with Section 5.2.
5.5 Invoice Terms. The Order Form constitutes a pro forma invoice and the Licensee’s signature on the Order Form constitutes Licensee’s express authorization and commitment to pay the amounts set forth in the Order Form and the Agreement. Amounts payable by Licensee are due regardless of issuance of additional courtesy invoices or the parties' execution of an additional Order Form.
5.6 Payment Terms. Licensee shall pay Magento in full for the Initial Term the Subscription Fee as set forth on the Order Form. Overdue payments will bear interest at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate allowed under applicable law. Each party will be responsible, as required under applicable law, for identifying and paying all taxes and other governmental fees and charges (and any penalties, interest, and other additions thereto) that are imposed on that party upon or with respect to the transactions and payments under this Agreement. All fees payable by Licensee are exclusive of Indirect Taxes. Magento may charge and Licensee will pay applicable Indirect Taxes that Magento is legally obligated or allowed to collect from Licensee. Licensee will provide such information to Magento as reasonably required to determine whether Magento is obligated to collect Indirect Taxes from Licensee. Magento will not collect, and Licensee will not pay, any Indirect Tax for which Licensee furnishes Magento a properly completed exemption certificate or a direct payment permit certificate for which Magento may claim an available exemption from such Indirect Tax. All payments made by Licensee to Magento under this Agreement will be made free and clear of any withholding or deduction for taxes. If any such taxes (for example, international withholding taxes) are required to be withheld on any payment, Customer will pay such additional amounts as are necessary so that the net amount received by Magento is equal to the amount then due and payable under this Agreement.
6.1 Confidential Information. Each Party acknowledges that, as a result of this Agreement, it may gain access to certain Confidential Information of the other Party. “Confidential Information” means the terms of this Agreement, the Order Form, financial terms and the Software, and all documentation and information, including, but not limited to, techniques, algorithms and processes and technical, business and marketing information, designated or marked by the party disclosing such documentation and information orally, visually or in writing (the “Disclosing Party”) as “proprietary” or “confidential” or the like, or that the other party (the “Receiving Party”) knows to be confidential, or should reasonably consider to be confidential under the circumstances of its disclosure, supplied by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party in connection with this Agreement (other than documentation and information intended for distribution to third parties).
6.2 Protection of Confidential Information. During the Term and for a period of five (5) years thereafter, each Receiving Party agrees (a) to hold the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in strict confidence, using the same degree of (but no less than reasonable) care and protection that it exercises with its own Confidential Information of a similar nature; (b) not to directly or indirectly disclose or otherwise make available any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to a third party; and (c) not to copy or use Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than as necessary to fulfill Receiving Party’s obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement. Each Party will disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information only to its employees with a need to know in order to fulfill such Party’s obligations hereunder and who have been informed of and have agreed to abide by the provisions of this Section 6. In addition, the Receiving Party will be allowed to disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent that such disclosure is approved in writing by the Disclosing Party or is required by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that the Receiving Party notifies the Disclosing Party of such required disclosure promptly and in writing and cooperates with the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party’s reasonable request and expense, in any lawful action to contest or limit the scope of such required disclosure.
6.3 Exclusions. The obligations of this Section will not apply to Confidential Information if such information: (a) is publicly available prior to or at the time of disclosure, or later becomes publicly available through no act of the Receiving Party; or (b) was, prior to disclosure hereunder, rightfully known to the Receiving Party (other than in connection with this Agreement) without confidentiality restriction.
7.1 Indemnification by Magento. Subject to the exclusions in Section 7.4, Magento shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Licensee from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, expenses, settlement amounts, and damages (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Licensee arising out of any suit or proceeding by a third party (other than an Affiliate of a Licensee) arising from allegations that the Magento Software, or any use of the Magento Software in accordance with this Agreement (including the documentation), infringes any United States patent or copyright.
7.2 Indemnification by Licensee. Licensee shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Magento from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, expenses, settlement amounts, and damages (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Magento arising out of any suit or proceeding by a third party arising from Licensee’s use of the Software or Licensee’s breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or obligation of Licensee under this Agreement, including, for the avoidance of doubt, any breach of Section 3.
7.3 Indemnification Procedure. Each party shall promptly notify the other party in writing of any action for which such party believes it is entitled to be indemnified pursuant to Section 7.1 or Section 7.2, as applicable. The party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnitee”) shall cooperate with the other party (the “Indemnitor”) at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitor shall immediately take control of the defense and investigation of such action and shall employ counsel of its choice to handle and defend the same, at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitee’s failure to perform any obligations under this Section 7.3 will not relieve the Indemnitor of its obligations under this Section 7 except to the extent that the Indemnitor can demonstrate that it has been prejudiced as a result of such failure. The Indemnitee may participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense with counsel of its own choosing.
7.4 Exclusions. Magento shall have no liability or obligation to indemnify the Licensee under this Section 7 to the extent the alleged infringement is based on (a) the Open Source Software or any other third party software; (b) Modifications and any other modifications or derivative works of the Magento Software developed by anyone other than Magento; (c) a combination of the Magento Software with the Open Source Software or any software, product or service not provided by Magento; (d) use of the Magento Software in any manner for which there is not a current and paid up subscription for both a Magento Software license and for Support Services; (e) use of the Magento Software other than in accordance with this Agreement or the documentation; (f) use of an older version of the Magento Software if a more recent version of the Magento Software would have avoided the infringement; (g) Licensee’s failure to implement any Updates or other modifications or replacements of the Magento Software made available to Licensee by Magento or as directed by Magento; (h) Magento’s compliance with any designs, materials, specifications or instructions provided by Licensee; (i) indirect infringement or any enhanced damages caused by willful infringement; (j) Licensee’s violation of any third party privacy rights under any Privacy and Data Security Laws; or (k) any actions or losses for which Licensee is obligated to indemnify Magento pursuant to Section 2.
7.5 Replacement. In the event that a court holds that the Magento Software, or if Magento believes a court may hold that the Magento Software infringes any United States patent or copyright, Magento shall in its sole discretion, do one of the following: (a) obtain for Licensee the right to continue using the Magento Software; (b) replace or modify the Magento Software so that it becomes non-infringing while providing substantially equivalent performance; or (c) accept return of the Magento Software, terminate this Agreement, and refund Licensee a pro rata amount of the prepaid but unused Subscription fees paid to Magento based on the percentage of the remaining Subscription Term.
7.6 Entire Liability. THIS SECTION 7 STATES MAGENTO’S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND LICENSEE’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY ACTUAL OR ALLEGED INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS RELATED TO THE SOFTWARE. LICENSEE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVES ANY OTHER LIABILITIES OR OBLIGATIONS OF MAGENTO WITH RESPECT THERETO.
8. DEFAULT AND TERMINATION
8.1 Term. The Term of each subscription, including any Renewal Terms, shall be specified on the applicable Order Form. On expiration of each Term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for additional period(s) for the same duration as the Initial Term (each a “Renewal Term”), unless either Licensee or Magento provides the other Party with Notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, as applicable. Any Notice of termination of this Agreement by either party to the other must set forth a Termination Date. The Subscription Fees for each individual Renewal Term will be the fees set forth for the Subscription on the Magento fee schedule in effect as of the first day of respective Renewal Term.

8.3 Notice of Default. If an event of default occurs, the non-defaulting party, in addition to any other rights available to it under the law, may terminate this Agreement and any or all Subscriptions granted hereunder to the Software by written notice to the defaulting party (except for the license granted by Licensee to Magento in Section 2.5 (Modifications by Licensee)).
8.4 Effect of Default. Within thirty (30) days after termination of this Agreement or expiration of any Term not followed by a Renewal Term, Licensee shall certify in writing to Magento that Licensee has ceased use of the Magento Software and that all copies or embodiments thereof (including related documentation) in any form, including partial copies within modified versions, have been destroyed.
8.5 Termination by Magento. Magento may terminate this Agreement on thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Licensee in the event Magento discontinues general commercial production, maintenance or support of the Magento Software.

In the event that the Magento Software fails to comply with the foregoing warranty, Licensee shall send written notice to Magento prior to the expiration of the warranty period and such notice will describe in reasonable detail the nature of the breach of the foregoing warranty. In the event that the Magento Software does not, in all material respects, perform the functions therein described, Magento will undertake commercially reasonable efforts to correct any reported error in accordance with the Support Services Terms, which shall be Magento’s entire liability and Licensee’s exclusive remedy for breach of this warranty.
9.2 DISCLAIMER OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES. THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 10 ARE THE ONLY WARRANTIES MADE BY MAGENTO WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE PROVIDED BY MAGENTO. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION 9, ALL SOFTWARE PROVIDED HEREUNDER IS PROVIDED “AS IS.” MAGENTO MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, OR ARISING BY CUSTOM OR TRADE USAGE, AND, SPECIFICALLY, MAKES NO WARRANTY OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, ACCURACY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. MAGENTO’S EXPRESS WARRANTIES SHALL NOT BE ENLARGED, DIMINISHED OR AFFECTED BY, AND NO OBLIGATION OR LIABILITY SHALL ARISE OUT OF, MAGENTO RENDERING TECHNICAL OR OTHER ADVICE OR SERVICE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE. Magento does not warrant that the Software will meet Licensee’s requirements, that the Software will operate in the combinations, which Licensee may select for use, that the operation of the Software will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that all error conditions will be corrected.

THIS LIABILITY CAP IS CUMULATIVE, WITH ALL PAYMENTS BEING AGGREGATED TO DETERMINE SATISFACTION OF THE LIMIT.

10.2 APPLICABILITY. THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 10 (LIMITATION OF LIABILITY) (A) SHALL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, (B) ARE AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND SHALL APPLY EVEN IF AN EXCLUSIVE OR LIMITED REMEDY STATED HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, AND (C) SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF THE CLAIM OR ACTION, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY.

Upon receipt of a properly submitted Software problem, as specified on the Site, Support Services shall be prioritized in accordance with the guidelines below:
7.1. Priority 1 ("P1") - A P1 is a catastrophic production problem within the Software that severely impacts the Licensee's Site, or because of which Licensee's Site is down or not functioning, or that results in a loss of production data and no work around exists. P1 problems must be reported on Magento's toll-free support telephone number in order to expedite resolution. Magento will use continuous efforts 24x7x365, with appropriate escalation to senior management, to provide a resolution for any P1 problem as soon as is commercially reasonable.
7.2. Priority 2 ("P2") - A P2 is a problem within the Software where the Licensee's system is functioning but in a reduced capacity, or the problem is causing significant impact to portions of the Licensee's business operations and productivity, or the Software is exposed to potential loss or interruption of service. Problems existing in a non-production environment that would otherwise qualify as a P1 if they were in a production system qualify as P2. Magento will use efforts during its normal hours of operation, 24 hours a day, (Monday - Friday) to provide a resolution for any P2 problem as soon as is commercially reasonable.
7.3. Priority 3 ("P3") - A P3 is a medium-to-low impact problem that involves partial and/or non-critical loss of functionality, or that impairs some operations but allows Licensee's operations to continue to function. Problems for which there is limited or no loss or functionality or impact to Licensee's operation and for which there is an easy work-around qualify as P3. Magento will use reasonable efforts during its normal hours of operation, 24 hours a day, (Monday - Friday) to provide a resolution for any P3 problem in time for the next minor release of the Software.
7.4. Priority 4 ("P4") - A P4 is for a general usage question or issue that may be cosmetic in nature or documentation related, but the Software works without interruption. Magento will use efforts during its normal hours of operation, 24 hours a day, (Monday - Friday) to provide a resolution for any P4 problem in time for the next major release of the Software.
7.5. Enhancement Request ("ER") - An ER is a recommendation for future product enhancement or modification to add official support and documentation for an unsupported or undocumented feature, or features that do not exist in the Software. Magento will take ERs into consideration in the product management process, but has no obligation to deliver enhancements based on any ER.
8. RESPONSE TIMES
Magento will provide Support Services and any Updates to Licensee during the periods identified in the Order Form and the default and termination shall be governed by Section 8 of the Subscription Agreement. Licensee's obligation of payment of moneys due under these Support Services Terms shall survive termination of these Support Services Terms or the Subscription Agreement. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that Magento shall have the right to terminate the provision of Support Services upon nonpayment of any fees due to Magento.
