6.11 Services Fees Adjustments. During the Initial Term and any Renewal Term, Solo may, upon 30 days written notice, and no more than once per Annual Period, increase the fees for any of the SaaS Services for the following Annual Period by an amount no greater than the sum of (i) the increase in the consumer price index published by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics for the previous twelve months, and (ii) four percent.

8.1.2 Obligations.  The Receiving Party will keep all Confidential Information confidential and, as applicable, will not disclose any of it to any person other than its Representatives who: (a) need to know such Confidential Information for purposes of Receiving Party’s exercise of its rights or performance of its obligations under and in accordance with this Agreement; (b) have been informed of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and Receiving Party’s obligations under this Section 8.1.2; and (c) are bound by confidentiality and restricted use obligations at least as protective of the Confidential Information as the terms set forth herein.  Receiving Party will not access or use Confidential Information other than as necessary to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under and in accordance with this Agreement.  In complying with this Agreement, Receiving Party will use care commensurate with the degree of care that it uses to protect its own comparably sensitive information but will in no case use less than a reasonable degree of care to safeguard the Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Receiving Party may disclose and use the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information: (1) with the prior written consent of Disclosing Party; (2) to the extent required by Applicable Law, provided, however, that to the extent practicable and legally permissible, Receiving Party will give prompt written Notice of any required disclosure to Disclosing Party and will reasonably cooperate with Disclosing Party, at Disclosing Party’s expense, to limit the scope of the disclosure, or assist in challenging the requested disclosure; and (3) with respect to Solo as the Receiving Party, to the extent and for the purposes set forth in the Privacy Policy.

8.2 Non-Competition.  As additional consideration for Solo providing Client with access to the SaaS Services and the Additional Services including, without limitation, Solo’s Confidential Information incorporated therein, during the Term and for a period of two (2) years thereafter (the “Restricted Period”), whether terminated for any reason or no reason, by either Party, Client agrees and covenants not to engage in or permit any of its Representatives to engage in, whether directly or indirectly through other Persons, Prohibited Activity within any country, province, state, city, or other similar political subdivision of the world in which Solo conducts business during the Restricted Period (the “Restricted Territory”).  During the Term, Client further agrees not to undertake or permit any of its Representatives to undertake preparations for Prohibited Activity.

8.4 Non-Disparagement.  During the Restricted Period, Client covenants and agrees that any officer-level employee then-currently employed by Client will not make critical, negative, or disparaging remarks about Solo, including any of its officers, employees, agents, or representatives, in any medium, including social media or on the Internet, or make or solicit any comments, statements, or the like to the media that are derogatory or detrimental to the good name or business reputation of Solo and any of its Representatives, including, but not limited to, comments about any of its products, services, business, sales practices or employment practices.    

8.5 Independent Covenants.  Each of the covenants set forth in this Section 8 will be construed as a separate and independent covenant, independent of the other covenants and all other terms of this Agreement, and not as dependent covenants, and the existence of any claim or cause of action of or by a Party against the other Party, whether predicated upon an alleged breach by a Party of this Agreement or otherwise, will not constitute a defense to the enforcement by a Party of any of the covenants set forth in this Section 8 against the other Party.

9. Intellectual Property Rights

9.1 Solo Materials and Work Product.  All right, title, and interest in and to the Solo Materials, including all Intellectual Property Rights therein, are and will remain with Solo and, with respect to Third-Party Materials, the applicable third-party providers own all right, title, and interest, including all Intellectual Property Rights, in and to the Third-Party Materials.  To the extent that Client acquires or previously acquired any right, title, or interest in any Solo Materials, Client agrees to assign, and hereby assigns, all such right, title, and interest in and to such Solo Materials, including all Intellectual Property Rights in the foregoing, to Solo.  Client has no right, license, or authorization with respect to any of the Solo Materials except as expressly set forth in Section 2 or the applicable third-party license, in each case subject to Section 3.1 and the other terms of this Agreement.  All other rights in and to the Solo Materials are expressly reserved by Solo.

10.2 Additional Solo Limited Warranty.  Solo represents and warrants that (a) it will perform the Services using personnel of required skill, experience, and qualifications and in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with generally recognized industry standards for similar services and will devote adequate resources to meet its obligations under this Agreement.  Solo’s sole and exclusive obligation, and Client’s sole and exclusive remedy, for a breach of this Section 10.2 is for Solo, in its sole discretion, to either reperform the deficient Services for Client or refund the fees, on a pro rata basis, that Client paid to Solo for the deficient Services. 

10.3 Additional Client Warranty.  Client represents and warrants that it owns or otherwise has and will have the necessary rights and consents in and relating to the Client Data so that, as received by Solo and used in accordance with this Agreement, they do not and will not infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any Intellectual Property Rights, or any privacy or other rights of any third party or violate any Applicable Law.

10.4 Warranty Disclaimer.  EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN SECTIONS 10.1, 10.2, and10.3, ALL SOLO MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.”  SOLO SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ALL WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE.  WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, SOLO MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND THAT THE SOLO MATERIALS, OR ANY PRODUCTS OR RESULTS OF THE USE THEREOF, WILL MEET CLIENT’S OR ANY OTHER PERSON’S REQUIREMENTS; OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION; ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT; BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY SOFTWARE, SYSTEM, OR OTHER SERVICES; OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, FREE OF HARMFUL CODE, OR ERROR-FREE.  SOLO DOES NOT WARRANT THE CAPACITY, PRODUCTION ESTIMATES, OR PRODUCTION OF ANY SYSTEM DESIGNED OR INSTALLED USING THE SOLO MATERIALS. ALL THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” AND ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF OR CONCERNING ANY THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS IS STRICTLY BETWEEN CLIENT AND THE THIRD-PARTY OWNER OR DISTRIBUTOR OF THE THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS.

11. Indemnification

11.1 Solo Indemnification.  Solo will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Client and Client’s officers, directors, employees, agents, permitted successors, and permitted assigns (each, a “Client Indemnitee”) from and against any and all Losses incurred by Client Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party that Client’s or an Authorized User’s use of the Services (excluding Client Data and Third-Party Materials) in accordance with this Agreement infringes or misappropriates such third party’s U.S. Intellectual Property Rights.  The foregoing obligation does not apply to the extent that the alleged infringement or misappropriation arises from: (a) Third-Party Materials or Client Data; (b) access to or use of the Solo Materials in combination with any hardware, system, software, network, or other materials or service not provided by Solo or specified for Client’s use in the Documentation; (c) modification of the Solo Materials other than: (i) by or on behalf of Solo; or (ii) with Solo’s written approval in accordance with Solo’s written specification; or (d) failure to timely implement any modifications, upgrades, replacements, or enhancements made available to Client by or on behalf of Solo; or (e) Client’s breach of this Agreement or violation of Applicable Law.

11.2 Indemnification by Client.  Client will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Solo and its Subcontractors and Affiliates, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns (each, a “Solo Indemnitee”), from and against any and all Losses incurred by such Solo Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party that arise out of or result from, or are alleged to arise out of or result from: (a) Client Data, including any use of Client Data by or on behalf of Solo in accordance with this Agreement; (b) any other materials or information (including any documents, data, specifications, software, content, or technology) provided by or on behalf of Client or any Authorized User, including Solo’s compliance with any specifications or directions provided by or on behalf of Client or any Authorized User to the extent prepared without any contribution by Solo; and (c) gross negligence or more culpable act or omission (including recklessness or willful misconduct) by Client, any Authorized User, or any third party on behalf of Client or any Authorized User, in connection with this Agreement. In addition, Client will indemnity, defend, and hold harmless the Solo Indemnities against any and all Losses incurred by such Solo Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party that alleges that any solar system installed using the Solo Materials is not fit for a particular purpose or fails to meet capacity, power production, reliability, or other stated or unstated performance metrics.

11.3 Indemnification Procedure.  Each Party will promptly notify the other Party in writing of any Action for which such Party believes it is entitled to be indemnified pursuant to Section 11.1 or Section 11.2, as the case may be.  The Party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnitee”) will cooperate with the other Party (the “Indemnitor”) at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense.  The Indemnitor will promptly assume control of the defense and will employ counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnitee to handle and defend the same, at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense.  The Indemnitee may participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense with counsel of its own choosing.  The Indemnitor will not settle any Action on any terms or in any manner that adversely affects the rights of any Indemnitee without the Indemnitee’s prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  If the Indemnitor fails or refuses to assume control of the defense of such Action, the Indemnitee will have the right, but no obligation, to defend against such Action, including settling such Action after giving Notice to the Indemnitor, in each case in such manner and on such terms as the Indemnitee may deem appropriate.  The Indemnitee’s failure to perform any obligations under this Section 11.3 will not relieve the Indemnitor of its obligations under this Section 11, except to the extent that the Indemnitor can demonstrate that it has been materially prejudiced as a result of such failure.

11.4 Mitigation.  If any of the Solo Materials are, or in Solo’s opinion are likely to be, claimed to infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any third-party Intellectual Property Right, or if Client’s or any Authorized User’s use of the Solo Materials is enjoined or threatened to be enjoined, Solo may, at its option and sole cost and expense: (a) obtain the right for Client to continue to use the Solo Materials materially as contemplated by this Agreement; (b) modify or replace the Solo Materials, in whole or in part, to seek to make the Solo Materials (as so modified or replaced) non-infringing, while providing materially equivalent features and functionality, in which case such modifications or replacements will constitute Solo Materials, as applicable, under this Agreement; or (c) by written Notice to Client, terminate this Agreement and require Client to immediately cease any use of the Solo Materials or any specified part or feature thereof, provided that Client will be entitled to a pro rata refund of any prepaid, but unused fees paid to Solo.

11.5 Sole Remedy.  THIS SECTION 11 SETS FORTH CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDIES AND SOLO’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THE SOLO MATERIALS OR ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.

12.Limitations on Damages and Liability

12.1 EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES.  TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER SOLO NOR ANY OF ITS LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR SUPPLIERS WILL BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ITS SUBJECT MATTER UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, FOR ANY: (a) LOSS OF PRODUCTION, USE, BUSINESS, REVENUE, OR PROFIT OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE; (b) IMPAIRMENT, INABILITY TO USE, OR LOSS, INTERRUPTION, OR DELAY OF THE SERVICES; (c) LOSS, DAMAGE, CORRUPTION, OR RECOVERY OF DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY; (d) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES; (e) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION; OR (f) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PERSONS WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY AGREED OR OTHER REMEDY OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

12.2 CAP ON MONETARY LIABILITY.  TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF SOLO AND ITS LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND SUPPLIERS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER ARISING UNDER OR RELATED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, EXCEED THE LESSER OF (A) ONE-HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100,000) OR (B) THE ACTUAL FEES PAID BY CLIENT TO SOLO FOR NON-CONFORMING SERVICES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE THE CLAIM AROSE.  THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

12.3 Allocation of Risk.  EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE FEES APPLICABLE FOR THE SERVICES REFLECT THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT SUCH PARTY WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THE DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY AND LIMITATIONS OF BOTH DAMAGES AND LIABILITY EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.   

13. General Conditions

13.4 No Third-Party Beneficiaries.  This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or will confer upon any other Person any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.

13.5 Sub-Dealers. If Solo permits Client to sign up sub-licensees under this Agreement, these sub-licensees shall be bound to the terms of this Agreement. Client may not sign up any sub-licensees without the written consent of Solo and agreement by sub-licensees to be fully responsible for their acts and omissions as if they were an original party to the Agreement. The foregoing shall not relieve Client from any responsibility for acts and omissions of its sub-licensees.

13.6 No Authority.  Neither Party will be considered a partner, agent, or employee of, or have the power or authority to bind, the other.  Without limiting the foregoing, each Party is and will be acting at all times as an independent contractor of the other Party.

13.7 Entire Agreement.  This Agreement, together with Exhibits A-C and any documents incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. 

13.8 Amendment and Modification; Waiver.  No amendment to or modification of this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing, identified as an amendment to this Agreement and signed by an authorized Representative of each Party.  No waiver by any Party of any of the provisions hereof will be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the Party so waiving.  Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement will operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.

13.9 Assignment.  Client will not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law, or otherwise, without Solo’s prior written consent.  For purposes of the preceding sentence, and without limiting its generality, any merger, consolidation, or reorganization involving Client (regardless of whether Client is a surviving or disappearing entity) will be deemed to be a transfer of rights, obligations, or performance under this Agreement for which Solo’s prior written consent is required.  No assignment, delegation, or transfer will relieve Client of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement.  Any purported assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of this Section 13.8 is void.  This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

13.11 Equitable Relief.  Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 3.1, Section 8, and Section 9 would cause the other Party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy.  Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.

13.12 Severability.  Should any provision of this Agreement be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be enforceable only if modified, or if any portion of this Agreement shall be held as unenforceable and thus stricken, such holding shall not affect the validity of the remainder of this Agreement, the balance of which shall continue to be binding upon the Parties with any such modification to become a part hereof and treated as though originally set forth in this Agreement.  The Parties further agree that any such court is expressly authorized to modify any such unenforceable provision of this Agreement in lieu of severing such unenforceable provision from this Agreement in its entirety, whether by rewriting the offending provision, deleting any or all of the offending provision, by adding additional language to this Agreement, or by making such other modifications as it deems warranted to carry out the intent and agreement of the Parties as embodied herein to the maximum extent permitted by law.  The Parties expressly agree that this Agreement as so modified by the court shall be binding upon and enforceable against each of them. In any event, should one or more of the provisions of this Agreement be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other provisions hereof, and if such provision or provisions are not modified as provided above, this Agreement shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provisions had not been set forth herein.

13.13 Rules of Interpretation.  This Agreement will be construed without regard to any presumption or rule requiring construction or interpretation against the Party drafting it.  Each Party acknowledges that it has had an opportunity to have legal counsel review and approve this Agreement prior to execution.  The Exhibits referred to in this Agreement, along with any other document specifically incorporated herein or therein, will be construed with, and form an integral part of, this Agreement to the same extent as if they were set forth verbatim herein.  The captions and headings used in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and will not be deemed to limit, characterize, or in any way affect the interpretation of this Agreement.

13.14 Execution.

  7. Services Credits. In the event (i) the Initial Term or Renewal Term is at least twelve (12) months, and (ii) the calculated fees pursuant to Sections 4 and 5 of this Exhibit A, plus the calculated fees pursuant to Sections 3 and 4 of Exhibit C, are less than the Monthly Minimum Spend, then the difference between the Monthly Minimum Spend and the calculated fee (the “Monthly Services Credit”) shall be available to use as a credit against future SaaS Services that exceed the Monthly Minimum Fee. Services Credits may not be used as a credit against fees that exceeded the Monthly Minimum Spend prior to the accrual of the Monthly Services Credit.
  8. One-Time Pricing Tier Adjustment. Client may, within the first 45 days following the Effective Date of this Agreement, select a different Pricing Tier for any of the Services listed in Exhibits A, B, or C (a “One-Time Pricing Tier Adjustment”). The Pricing Tier selected must be at a level above the “Monthly” Pricing Tier for any Services so adjusted, and Client may only elect one One-Time Pricing Tier Adjustment during the Term of this Agreement. If Client selects a different Pricing Tier, Solo will work with Client in good faith to adjust the Minimum Monthly Spend to reflect the impact of the One-Time Pricing Tier Adjustment.
