Customer may pre-purchase credits to be applied to Ad Fees (“Ad Credits”).  Customer shall pay all Fees without offset or deduction. Customer acknowledges and agrees that (i) Subscription Fees are based on Services subscriptions purchased, and not actual usage, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and Fees paid are non-refundable, except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, and (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term, and unused Ad Credits are non-refundable and cannot be sold, traded, transferred, or exchanged for cash.  All Fees shall be paid in US dollars on or before the due date set forth in the subscription plan and shall be made by credit card or other payment method approved by Boostpoint.  Boostpoint may charge interest on overdue amounts at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest lawful rate, whichever is less. In the event that Boostpoint must utilize a collection agency or institute legal proceedings to collect any Fees or other amounts due under this Agreement, Customer shall be liable for all reasonable attorneys’ fees, agency costs, and other costs associated therewith.
    2. Taxes. All Fees and other amounts payable by Customer under this Agreement are exclusive of taxes and similar assessments. Customer is responsible for all sales, use, value-added, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, or local governmental or regulatory authority arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, other than any taxes imposed on Boostpoint’s income.
  6. Confidential Information. From time to time during the Term of this Agreement, either party (as the “Disclosing Party”) may disclose or make available to the other party (as the “Receiving Party”) certain Confidential Information (as defined below) of the Disclosing Party.  “Confidential Information” includes documents, data, software, and information which, when provided by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party: (i) are clearly identified as “Confidential” or “Proprietary” or are marked with a similar legend; (ii) are disclosed orally or visually, and identified as Confidential Information at the time of disclosure and confirmed as Confidential Information in writing within ten (10) business days; or (iii) a reasonable person would understand to be confidential or proprietary at the time of disclosure.  The Services and Documentation, as well as results of benchmark and other tests run by either party and resulting from use of the Services, shall be deemed Boostpoint Confidential Information without any need for any markings or legends, and in addition to the other restrictions in this Section 5, shall not be disclosed to any competitor of Boostpoint. Confidential Information does not include information that the Receiving Party can demonstrate by written documentation was, at the time of disclosure: (a) in the public domain; (b) already known to the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure; (c) rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third party; or (d) independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. The Receiving Party shall not disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to the Receiving Party’s employees and service providers who are bound by confidentiality agreements with terms no less restrictive than those of this Section 5 and have a need to know the Confidential Information for the Receiving Party to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the limited extent required (1) in order to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with applicable law, provided that Receiving Party making the disclosure pursuant to the order shall, if permitted by law, give prompt prior written notice to the Disclosing Party and cooperate reasonably with the Disclosing Party’s efforts to obtain a protective order; or (2) to establish a Party’s rights under this Agreement, including to make required court filings. The Receiving Party shall use at least the same degree of care in protecting the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as the Receiving Party generally exercises in protecting its own information of a similar nature, and shall inform its employees and contractors having access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information of its confidential nature. In no event shall the Receiving Party use less than a commercially reasonable degree of care in protecting the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.  On the expiration or termination of the Agreement, the Receiving Party shall promptly return to the Disclosing Party all copies, whether in written, electronic, or other form or media, of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, or destroy all such copies and, upon request, certify in writing to the Disclosing Party that such Confidential Information has been destroyed. Each Receiving Party’s obligations of non-disclosure with regard to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information will expire five years from the date the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information is first disclosed to the Receiving Party; provided, however, with respect to any such Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law.
  7. Intellectual Property Ownership.
    1. Boostpoint IP. Customer acknowledges that, as between Customer and Boostpoint, Boostpoint owns all rights, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Boostpoint IP.
    2. Customer Content. Boostpoint acknowledges that, as between Boostpoint and Customer, Customer owns all right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Customer Content. Customer hereby grants to Boostpoint a non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-transferable (except in connection with a permitted assignment of this Agreement), non-sublicensable (except to Boostpoint’s service providers, as deemed necessary to provide services to Boostpoint) worldwide license to reproduce, distribute, and otherwise use and display the Customer Content and perform all acts with respect to the Customer Content as may be necessary for Boostpoint to provide the Services to Customer.
  8. Limited Warranty and Warranty Disclaimer.
    1. Boostpoint Warranty.  Boostpoint warrants that the Services will conform in all material respects to the specifications set forth in the Documentation when the Services are accessed and used in accordance with the Documentation (the “Product Warranty”). As Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, and Boostpoint’s sole liability, for any breach of the Product Warranty reported by Customer, Boostpoint shall (i) take reasonable steps to correct or repair the Services so that they substantially conform to their applicable Documentation, or (ii) if such correction or repair cannot be effectuated within a reasonable time, as determined by Boostpoint, terminate Customer’s subscription and refund to Customer any prepaid, unused Fees for the Services, pro-rated by day to the effective date of termination.  Boostpoint shall not be obligated to remedy any outage, failure, or defect in the Services that cannot be adequately repeated.  The Product Warranty also does not apply to any outage, failure, or defect in the Services that results from (1) Customer’s failure to maintain the proper production environment to access and use the Services (including any failure to maintain the systems and applications required by the Documentation), (2) use of the Services in a manner or for a purpose not expressly permitted in this Agreement or the Documentation, (3) failures of Customer or third-party hardware, software, equipment or networks (including Third Party Applications), or (4) a Force Majeure Event (as defined in Section 11(i) below).  
    2. Customer Warranty.  Customer represents and warrants to Boostpoint that: (i) Customer has all rights, licenses, consents, and permissions necessary to grant the license set forth in Section 7(b) above; (ii) Customer and its Authorized Users shall at all times comply with any laws, rules, and regulations applicable to their activities in connection with this Agreement; and (iii) Customer and the Authorized Users shall not upload, submit, store, publish, distribute, or process any unlawful, infringing, or libelous content, material, or data through the Services, or any content or material that contains viruses, worms, Trojan horses, malware or other surreptitious, harmful or invasive code.
    3. Advertising efforts are dynamic undertakings that involve many influences and factors, of which Boostpoint’s Services are merely one. Customer acknowledges that Boostpoint makes no representations or warranties concerning the impact of the Services, the number of times Customer Content will be displayed and viewed, the number of impressions, clicks, or other actions that will be generated through Customer Content, or the availability of any particular category of inventory or any particular publisher’s inventory for the display of Customer Content.  For the avoidance of doubt, Customer acknowledges that it is not purchasing “leads” from Boostpoint.  Any estimates or projections provided by Boostpoint are solely illustrative and shall not be construed to be a guarantee by Boostpoint.    
    4. WITHOUT LIMITING ANYTHING IN SECTION 8(C):  EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 8(a) ABOVE, THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND BOOSTPOINT HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE. BOOSTPOINT 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. BOOSTPOINT MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND THAT THE BOOSTPOINT IP, OR ANY SERVICES OR RESULTS OF THE USE THEREOF, WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S OR ANY OTHER PERSON’S REQUIREMENTS, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR DOWNTIME, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT OR REVENUE, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY SOFTWARE, SYSTEM OR OTHER SERVICES, OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, FREE OF HARMFUL CODE, OR ERROR-FREE.  NO STATEMENT WHETHER MADE BY BOOSTPOINT’S EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR OTHERWISE SHALL BE DEEMED TO BE A WARRANTY BY BOOSTPOINT FOR ANY PURPOSE OR TO GIVE RISE TO ANY LIABILITY ON THE PART OF BOOSTPOINT.  
  9. Indemnification.
    1. Boostpoint Indemnification.
      1. Boostpoint shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer from and against any and all out-of-pocket losses, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Customer resulting from any third-party claim, suit, action, or proceeding due to the infringement or misappropriation of such third party’s valid U.S. intellectual property rights by the Services, as provided by Boostpoint to Customer and used by Customer in accordance with this Agreement.
      2. Should the Services become, or in Boostpoint’s opinion are likely to become, subject to a claim of infringement, Customer agrees to permit Boostpoint, at Boostpoint’s sole discretion, to (A) modify or replace the Services, or component or part thereof, to make it non-infringing, or (B) obtain the right for Customer to continue use. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Boostpoint, in its sole discretion, determines that neither alternative is reasonably available to it, Boostpoint may terminate this Agreement, in its entirety or with respect to the affected component or part, effective immediately on written notice to Customer and with no further liability to Customer.
      3.

    2. Customer Indemnification. Customer shall indemnify, hold harmless, and, at Boostpoint’s option, defend Boostpoint from and against any and all out-of-pocket losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from or relating to any third-party claim, suit, action, or proceeding   (1) alleging that the Customer Content, or any use of the Customer Content in accordance with this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property, privacy, or other proprietary rights, and/or (2) alleging facts that, if true, would constitute Customer’s or any Authorized User’s (i) negligence or willful misconduct; (ii) use of the Services in a manner not authorized by this Agreement; (iii) use of the Services in combination with data, software, hardware, equipment or technology not provided by Boostpoint or authorized by Boostpoint in writing; (iv) modifications to the Services by Customer, Authorized Users, or any person obtaining access through Customer or an Authorized User; or (v) Customer’s breach of its representations and warranties in this Agreement.
    3. The foregoing indemnification obligations of each indemnifying party will be dependent on the indemnified party: (i) providing the indemnifying party with prompt written notice of the claim (provided that failure to so notify will not remove the indemnifying party’s obligation except to the extent it is materially prejudiced thereby); (ii) permitting the indemnifying party to control the defense and settlement of the claim; (iii) refraining from entering into any settlement or compromise of any such claim without approval of the indemnifying party; (iv) providing the indemnifying party with reasonable information and assistance for the defense or settlement of the claim, at the indemnifying party’s expense; and (v) using all commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate any loss, damage, or costs related to the claim.
    4. Sole Remedy. THIS SECTION 9 SETS FORTH CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AND BOOSTPOINT’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THE SERVICES OR THEIR USE INFRINGE, MISAPPROPRIATE, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATE OR MISAPPROPRIATE ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY. 
  10. Limitations of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL BOOSTPOINT BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY: (a) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; (b) INCREASED COSTS, DIMINUTION IN VALUE OR LOST BUSINESS, PRODUCTION, REVENUES, OR PROFITS; (c) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION; (d) USE OF, INABILITY TO USE, LOSS OF, INTERRUPTION OF, DELAY OR RECOVERY OF, ANY DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY; OR (e) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER BOOSTPOINT WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE. IN NO EVENT WILL BOOSTPOINT’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE TOTAL SUBSCRIPTION FEES PAID TO BOOSTPOINT UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE ONE (1) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE UPON WHICH THE LAST CLAIM OR DAMAGE AROSE.  Customer agrees that the disclaimer of warranties in Section 8(c) AND 8(D), and THE limitations of liability in this Section 10, are a material inducement and consideration for Boostpoint to enter into this Agreement and provide the Services at their current pricing.  Accordingly, such provisions shall be enforced as written even if a remedy fails of its essential purpose. 
  11. Miscellaneous.
    1. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, as modified from time to time, 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, and representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter.
    2. Amendment and Modification; Waiver. No amendment to or modification of this Agreement is effective unless it is in writing 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, (i) 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, and (ii) no single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder will preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
    3. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid, illegal, or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to affect their original intent as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
    4. Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the licenses granted hereunder will be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in each case located in the city of Philadelphia and County of Philadelphia, and each Party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding.
    5. Assignment. Neither party may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any third party or agency without the prior written consent of the other party.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign this Agreement without consent to a successor (by merger, consolidation, purchase of assets, reorganization, or otherwise) to substantially all of the assets or business of the business unit to which this Agreement relates.  Boostpoint may also, without notice, utilize subcontractors and agents to provide aspects of the Services, provided, however, that Boostpoint shall remain primarily responsible for compliance with its obligations under this Agreement.  Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section will be null and void. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.

Customer shall comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations, and rules, and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval), prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing, or otherwise making the Services or the underlying software or technology available outside the US.
    7. US Government Rights. The Services and any related information are commercial computer software and commercial computer software documentation, and, as specified in FAR 12.212 or DFARS 227.7202, and their successors, as applicable, the U.S. federal government’s rights to use, reproduce or disclose such software, documentation and other information are restricted in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Use, duplication, or disclosure by the U.S. federal government is subject to the restrictions as set forth in subparagraph (c)(1)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software clause at DFARS 252.227-7013 or subparagraphs (c)(1) and (2) of the Commercial Computer Software-Restricted Rights at 48 CFR 52.227-19, as applicable.
    8. Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such party of any of its obligations under Sections 5, 6, or, in the case of Customer, Section 2(b), would cause the other party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agrees that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other party will be entitled to seek 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. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
    9. Force Majeure.  Neither party shall be liable to the other, following notice thereof, for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations (except for required payments and the parties’ obligations pursuant to Section 2(b), 5, and 6 above) for any cause that is beyond the reasonable control of such party, including, without limitation, acts of God, shortages of supplies, labor or materials, strikes, and other labor disputes, storms, floods, acts of war or terrorism, third-party hacking and other criminal or malicious activities, utility brown-outs, failures of telecommunications or the Internet, epidemics, pandemics, public health crisis (including, but not limited to, COVID-19), and actions by a governmental authority (such as changes in government codes, ordinances, laws, rules, regulations, or restrictions) (collectively, “Force Majeure Events”).  For the avoidance of doubt, Force Majeure Events do not include economic hardship, changes in market conditions, and/or insufficiency of funds, including to the extent caused by or resulting from any of the circumstances described in this section.
    10. No Agency.  The parties to this Agreement are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create a joint venture, partnership, or agency relationship between the parties in this Agreement.
    11. Press Release.  Boostpoint may issue a press release regarding Customer’s entry into this Agreement and use of the Services.  Boostpoint may also refer to Customer as a customer or user of the Services in marketing materials, trade shows, and other promotional or industry-focused communications, and on Boostpoint’s website.
    12. All notices shall be in writing and shall be delivered by personal delivery, facsimile transmission, e-mail, overnight mail or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, and shall be deemed given upon personal delivery, five days after deposit in the mail, or upon acknowledgment or confirmation of delivery of e-mail or facsimile transmission.  Notices to Boostpoint shall be sent to the address set forth in the preamble to this Agreement (or such other address as Boostpoint designates by notice sent pursuant to this paragraph) and shall be addressed to Boostpoint’s CEO.  All notices to Customer may be sent to the latest business or e-mail address associated with Customer’s account.
