The Services are provided by Soliant from a data center facility to which your Users have remote access. The maximum number of Users that you authorize to access the Services shall not exceed the number of User licenses (also referred to as "subscriptions") you have purchased, as evidenced in the Ordering Document. User licenses cannot be shared or used by more than one individual User (unless it is reassigned in its entirety to another authorized User, in which case the prior authorized User shall no longer have any right to access or use such license). You acknowledge and agree that Soliant shall own all right, title and interest in and to all intellectual property rights in the Services (including all derivatives or improvements thereof), and any suggestions, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by you or any other party relating to the Services. You hereby do and shall make all assignments and take all acts necessary to accomplish the foregoing ownership. The rights granted to you in the Agreement are subject to all of the Usage Restrictions described in Section 2.
2. Usage Restrictions.

3. Your Data. Soliant does not own any data, information or material that you submit to the Service in the course of using the Service ("Your Data"). You, not Soliant, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of Your Data. Soliant will protect any data provided by you that resides in your Services environment as confidential in accordance with Section 11. You acknowledge and agree that Your Data may be transferred or stored outside of the country or other jurisdiction where you and your Users are located, such as in connection with the provision of support services.

You shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment and ancillary services needed to connect to, access or otherwise use the Services, including, without limitation, modems, hardware, server, software, operating system, networking, web servers, internet connectivity, long distance and local telephone service (collectively, "Equipment"). You shall be responsible for ensuring that such Equipment is compatible with the Service (and, to the extent applicable, the Software) and complies with all configurations and specifications set forth in Soliant's published policies then in effect. Soliant is not responsible for your network connections or for conditions or problems arising from or related to your network connections (e.g., bandwidth issues, excessive latency, network outages) or caused by the internet.

All fees due under the Agreement are non-cancelable and the sums paid nonrefundable, except as otherwise specified in Section 8 of the Agreement. Soliant's fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties (excluding U.S. taxes based on Soliant's income), even if such amounts are not listed on an Ordering Document. You shall pay all charges in U.S. Dollars. If you exceed the usage limits set forth in the Ordering Document, Soliant reserves the right to charge you Soliant's then-current usage fees for such overage. You will provide Soliant with valid and updated credit card or approved purchase order information and complete and accurate billing and contact information. If you provide credit card information to Soliant, you authorize Soliant to bill such credit card (a) at the time that you order any products or services, for all products and services set forth in the Ordering Document, (b) for your usage that exceeds the usage limits set forth in your Ordering Document, and (c) at the time of any renewal, for the amount charged for any renewal Subscription Term(s) as set forth in Section 7. If Soliant, in its discretion, permits you to make payment using a method other than a credit card, Soliant will invoice you at the time of the initial Ordering Document and approximately one month in advance of the start of any renewal or subsequent billing period. All amounts invoiced hereunder are due and payable within 30 days of the date of the invoice. Unpaid invoices are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection.
7. Term and Termination. This User Agreement is valid for the Ordering Document in which this User Agreement is incorporated by reference. The term of the Services set forth in the Ordering Document hereunder shall commence upon the date of enablement of the Services, or as otherwise set forth in such Ordering Document, and shall continue for the period of time set forth in such Ordering Document (the "Subscription Term"). Except as otherwise provided in an Ordering Document issued by Soliant, Services subscriptions may be renewed under Soliant's then-current applicable policies and terms, subject to Soliant's acceptance and your payment of fees for such Services. In the event of any material breach of the Agreement by either party, the non-breaching party shall have the right to terminate the applicable Ordering Document for cause if such breach has not been cured within 30 days of written notice from the non-breaching party specifying the breach in detail. Soliant may immediately suspend your password, account, and access to the Services during such cure period if (i) you fail to make payment due to Soliant under the Agreement and do not cure such non-payment within ten business days after Soliant has provided you with notice of such failure, or (ii) you violate any provision within Sections 1, 2, or 11 of this User Agreement. Any suspension by Soliant of the Services under the preceding sentence shall not excuse you from your obligation to make payment(s) under the Agreement. Upon any termination of the Ordering Document, your right to access and use the Services specified in the Ordering Document shall terminate. If Soliant terminates the Ordering Document under this Section or otherwise in accordance with this Agreement, you must pay within 30 days all amounts which have accrued prior to such termination, as well as all sums remaining unpaid for services for the remainder of the then-current term (even if earlier terminated) under the Ordering Document plus related taxes and expenses. At your request, within 30 days of termination of the Ordering Document, provided you are not in breach of the Agreement or such Ordering Document, Soliant may permit you to access the Services solely to the extent necessary for you to retrieve a file of Your Data then in Soliant's possession. You agree and acknowledge that Soliant has no obligation to retain Your Data and that Your Data may be irretrievably deleted after 30 days following the termination of the Ordering Document or if your account is 30 days or more past due. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon termination for cause, your right to access or use Your Data immediately ceases, and Soliant shall have no obligation to maintain or forward any of Your Data. All sections of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, accrued rights to payment, use restrictions and indemnity obligations, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
