Each party agrees to preserve the confidential nature of the other party’s Confidential Information by retaining and using the Confidential Information in trust and confidence, solely for its internal use except as provided herein, and by using the same degree of protection that such party uses to protect similar proprietary and confidential information, but in no event less than reasonable care.

(a) “By Eventador. Eventador will defend any action brought against Customer to the extent that it is based upon a claim by a third party that the Service, used within the scope of this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates any third party intellectual property right, and will pay any costs, damages and reasonable attorneys’ fees attributable to such claim that are finally awarded against Customer or agreed by Eventador in a written settlement, provided that Customer (i) notifies Eventador in writing of the claim within ten (10) days after becoming aware of such claim; (ii) grants Eventador sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim; and (iii) provides Eventador with all assistance, information and authority required for the defense and settlement of the claim.
(b) Exclusions. Notwithstanding the terms of Subsection (a), Eventador will have no liability for any infringement claim of any kind to the extent it results from: (i) modification of the Service made other than by Eventador; (ii) unauthorized or unlicensed use of the Service; (iii) the combination, operation or use of any Service with equipment, devices or software not supplied by Eventador, to the extent such a claim would have been avoided if the Service was not used in such combination; (iv) failure of Customer to use updated or modified Service made available by to avoid infringement; (v) Third Party Software; (vi) the Kafka platform itself, to the extent reflected in the Service, or (vii) failure to mitigate damages.
(c) Rights Upon Infringement. If Customer’s use of the Service is, or in Eventador’s opinion is likely to be, enjoined due to the type of infringement specified in Subsection (a) above, Eventador may, at its sole option and expense: (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using such Service under the terms of this Agreement; (ii) replace or modify the Service so that it is non-infringing; or (ii) if options (i) and (ii) above cannot be accomplished despite Eventador’s reasonable efforts, then Eventador may terminate Customer’s rights and Eventador’s obligations hereunder and refund the pro-rated portion of any pre-paid fees attributable to any remaining portion of the Term.

14. Fees and Payment.
(a) Fees. Each subscription level includes monthly fees for the use of the Service (“Subscription Fees”). Subscription Fees, together with all other fees that may be payable pursuant to this Agreement (collectively, “Fees”), for each subscription level, are set forth on the Eventador pricing page, unless otherwise set forth in any quote or order form that may be entered into between Customer and Eventador. Eventador reserves the right to change the monthly Subscription Fees and other Fees at any time by updating the Fees listed on the Eventador pricing page and the updated Fees will be effective within 30 days.
(b) Payment. The Subscription Fees are payable each month, in advance, by credit card or such other electronic payment method as may be designated by Eventador from time to time (“Payment Method”). [Customer may also elect to prepay the Subscription Fees for an annual period in exchange for a prepayment discount.] In addition, if agreed to writing by the parties, Customer may pay via invoice. In such case, Eventador will issue an invoice for the full payment amount corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice and, unless otherwise specified, Customer shall pay within 30 days of the invoice date. All Fees are due and payable in U.S. dollars, non-refundable and are exclusive of applicable sales, excise, use or similar taxes. Customer shall pay all such taxes directly or to us, as required by applicable law. If applicable, Customer authorizes Eventador to charge the Payment Method on file with User’s account for all Fees. If payment is not made on the respective due date, Eventador may charge Customer a late fee on the unpaid balance at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum lawful rate permitted by applicable law. Any past due Fees will be sent to collections. If our collection efforts fail, unpaid debts will be reported to all available credit reporting agencies.
15. Support and Maintenance.
Eventador will offer technical support regarding use of the Service Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm Central time, excluding holidays (list of holidays will be provided upon request) via the phone number and email address listed under the support section of Eventador.com.

Emergency maintenance may be required in the event of system failure. We make no guarantees about Service uptime.

This Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and will remain in effect unless terminated earlier in accordance herewith. In the event that a party is in material breach of the terms of this Agreement and does not cure such breach within thirty (30) days following notice thereof, then the other party may immediately terminate the same by sending written notice to the breaching party. In addition, Customer may cancel its subscription and this Agreement at any time by providing 30 days prior written notice. If Customer received an annual prepayment discount and cancels prior to the expiration of the current term, Customer will pay the difference between the amount originally paid minus the current monthly Fees for the Service for each remaining month. The following provisions will survive any termination of this Agreement: Section 7-12, 14 (as to amounts owed as of termination), 17-18 and 20-30.
17. Collection and Use of Your Information.
18. Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability.
This section is important – please read it carefully. It limits Eventador’s liability (and the liability of its affiliates) to you. These disclaimers and limitations apply only to the extent permitted by applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow disclaimers of implied warranties or limitations of liability, so this Section may not apply to you.
(a) Disclaimer of Warranties. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED ABOVE, THE SERVICE, ANY DOCUMENTATION, ANY SUPPORT OR OTHER SERVICES, AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS HERETO ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND WE HEREBY DISCLAIM, ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY.
(b) Limitation of Liability. NEITHER WE NOR OUR AFFILIATES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RELATED TO THE SERVICE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS AND THE COST OF COVER. NEITHER WE NOR OUR AFFILIATES WILL HAVE liability to YOU for damages IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF: (i) U.S. $50.00, OR (ii) THE AMOUNT YOU PAID to us FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, IF ANY, IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE CLAIM. The ABOVE limitations apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.
(c) Acknowledgements and Agreements Regarding Kafka and Related Risks. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE SERVICE AND THE INTENDED USE THEREOF INHERENTLY DEPENDS ON THE CONTINUING AVAILABILITY OF THE APACHE KAFKA PLATFORM (“Kafka”), THAT THIS IS A MATTER BEYOND EVENTADOR’S CONTROL, AND THAT IF APACHE CEASES TO MAKE KAFKA AVAILABLE ON REASONABLE TERMS OR MATERIALLY CHANGES THE PLATFORM, THE SERVICE MAY NOT FUNCTION AS INTENDED, OR AT ALL. CUSTOMER ACCEPTS ALL RISK ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH DEPENDENCE. CUSTOMER AGREES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT ITS OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, INCLUDING PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS, ARE NOT CONTINGENT ON THE ONGOING AVAILABILITY OF KAFKA, AND AGREES AND AKNOWLEDGES THAT IT WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO A REFUND OF ANY PREPAID FEES IN THE EVENT OF ANY CESSATION OF FUNCTIONALITY RELATED TO KAFKA.
CUSTOMER FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT IS SUBJECT TO COMPLIANCE WITH THE APPLICABLE APACHE LICENSE WITH RESPECT TO ACCESS AND USE OF KAFKA AND HEREBY AGREES TO COMPLY THEREWITH IN ITS USE OF THE SERVICE.
19. Consent to Receive Commercial E-mail.
We may need to communicate with you about the Service, and we would like to make certain commercial offers available to you from time to time. AS SUCH, YOU CONSENT TO RECEIVE COMMERCIAL MESSAGES (WHETHER BY PHONE, EMAIL, TEXT OR PUSH NOTIFICATIONS) FROM US OR OUR THIRD PARTY PARTNERS, AND ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR PRIMARY PHONE NUMBERS AND EMAIL ADDRESSES AND OTHER INFORMATION MAY BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF INITIATING COMMERCIAL MESSAGES. We will allow you to opt out of receiving some of these messages, but in order to stop receiving any messages from us whatsoever (including administrative messages regarding the Service), you will need to terminate your account.
20. Export and Other Restrictions.
You may not use or otherwise export or re-export the Service or elements of it, except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Service was accessed or obtained. You also agree that you will not use the Service for any purposes prohibited by applicable law. The Service and related documentation are “Commercial Items”, as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. §2.101, consisting of “Commercial Computer Software” and “Commercial Computer Software Documentation”, as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. §12.212 or 48 C.F.R. §227.7202, as applicable. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. §12.212 or 48 C.F.R. §227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, as applicable, the Commercial Computer Software and Commercial Computer Software Documentation are being licensed to U.S. Government end users (a) only as Commercial Items and (b) with only those rights as are granted to all other end users pursuant to the terms and conditions herein.
We may change the terms of this Agreement from time to time. Any change will take effect when we notify Customer of the change (either through an email notice or a message delivered through the Service) and Customer accepts the change (via email or an electronic click-to-accept method).
22. Governing Law and Arbitration. The Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas applicable to agreements entered into, and to be performed entirely, within Texas between Texas residents. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of this Agreement will be settled by binding arbitration pursuant to the Commercial Rules (or Consumer Rules, to the extent applicable) of the American Arbitration Association (“Rules”) then in effect. Notwithstanding those Rules, the following provisions will apply to such arbitration: (a) the arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator, (b) the fees of the arbitrator shall be equally borne (50/50) by the parties, and (c) the proceedings shall be in the English language and shall take place in Austin, Texas or another location reasonably convenient to both parties. The arbitrator shall reach a binding decision regarding the issues presented as it deems fair, reasonable and appropriate, and such decision shall have the full force and effect of a binding judgment, which may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. Each party may seek injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and Eventador agree to resolve any dispute in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not on a class or collective basis.
23. Relationship of Parties.
The Parties to the Agreement are independent contractors and the Agreement will not establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise, or agency between the Parties. Neither Party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent.
24. Equitable Relief.
The Parties agree that a material breach of the license, restrictions, or confidentiality provisions of the Agreement would cause irreparable injury to Eventador for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy, and therefore Eventador shall be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any other remedies it may have hereunder or at law, without the requirement of posting bond or proving actual damages.
25. Force Majeure.
Neither Party shall be deemed to have breached any provision of the Agreement as a result of any delay, failure in performance, or interruption of service resulting directly or indirectly from acts of God, network failures, acts of civil or military authorities, civil disturbances, wars, terrorism, energy crises, fires, transportation contingencies, interruptions in third-party telecommunications or Internet equipment or service, other catastrophes, or any other occurrences which are beyond such Party’s control.
26. Government Use.
The use, duplication, reproduction, release, modification, disclosure, or transfer (“use”) of the Service and any documentation, no matter how received by the United States Government, is restricted in accordance with the terms and conditions contained herein. All other use is prohibited. Further, the Service and any documentation was developed at Eventador’s private expense and is commercial in nature. By using, receiving, or downloading the Service and any documentation, the Government user agrees to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement including the terms and conditions contained in this paragraph.
Customer may not assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without Eventador’s prior written consent. Eventador may assign the Agreement in its discretion. Any purported assignment in violation of this section shall be null and void. The Agreement shall be binding on all permitted assignees.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision hereof, or any terms thereof, shall not affect the validity of the Agreement as a whole, which will at all times remain in full force and effect.
The failure of either Party to enforce at any time the provisions of the Agreement, or the failure to require at any time performance by the other Party of any of the provisions of the Agreement, shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect the ability of either Party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by either Party of any provision, condition or requirement of the Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
30. Entire Agreement.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter contemplated herein, and supersedes any prior representations, agreements, negotiations, or understandings between them, whether written or oral, with respect to the subject matter hereof. No waiver, alteration, or modification of any of the provisions of the Agreement shall be binding unless in writing and signed by duly authorized representatives of the Parties hereto or unless Customer acceptances a subsequent click-to-accept agreement delivered by Eventador.
