MASTER SERVICES AGREEMENT
1.2 Statement of Work Authorization and Modification. Each Statement of Work is to be signed on behalf of the Client exclusively by designated authorized representatives of Client. Any deviation from or modification to a Statement of Work must be agreed to by the parties in writing. In the event of any express conflict or inconsistency between the provisions of a Statement of Work and the provisions of this Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement will govern and control unless the parties include an express statement of the parties’ intention to supersede or override such provision of this Agreement, in which case such provision of such Statement of Work will govern and control with respect to the interpretation of that Statement of Work only; provided, however, that the provisions of the Statement of Work will be so construed as to give effect to the applicable provisions of this Agreement to the fullest extent possible, including, without limitation, Sections 3.3, 3.4, 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 of this Agreement.
2.1 Charges for Services. Client will pay to Inscale Technologies the charges set forth in each Statement of Work in accordance with this Agreement and such Statements of Work. Unless otherwise provided in the Statement of Work, Inscale Technologies agrees not to change its fees during the term of the Statement of Work without the written consent of Client; provided, however, Inscale Technologies may adjust its fees prior to entering into a new Statement of Work.
(a) For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” shall mean nonpublic information, in tangible or intangible form, of the disclosing party that disclosing party designates as confidential or which under the circumstances surrounding the disclosure would reasonably be considered confidential. Confidential Information shall include, without limitation, information contained in design documentation relating to any programs of Inscale Technologies (in the case of Inscale Technologies), Client or Client’s customers to whom Services are rendered (in the case of Client), any source code, development level documentation, all Inscale Technologies development tools (except for publicly available tools), data files, databases, marketing plans, supplier and customer information, proprietary and technical information, and business and marketing strategies and plans (in the case of Inscale Technologies), and information received from others that disclosing party is obligated to treat as confidential (in the case of either party). A party’s Confidential Information shall include all nonpublic information and data that such party discloses, provides, or otherwise makes available to the other. Notwithstanding the foregoing, information disclosed to or acquired by recipient of the information shall not constitute Confidential Information to the extent that the recipient can demonstrate (i) such information was lawfully known to the recipient prior to the disclosure thereof by disclosing party without breach of any obligation owed to the disclosing party; (ii) such information is or thereafter becomes lawfully obtained from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the disclosing party; (iii) the recipient’s duty as to confidentiality is waived in writing by disclosing party; (iv) such information was developed by employees or agents of the recipient of the information independently of and without reference to Confidential Information or other information that disclosing party has disclosed in confidence to any third party. In the event a recipient or any of its Representatives are required by legal process or applicable law to disclose any Confidential Information of the disclosing party, the recipient of the Confidential Information shall notify the disclosing party in writing prior to disclosure of such Confidential Information and shall fully cooperate with and assist the disclosing party in taking legally available steps to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy. In the event such disclosing party seeks but fails to obtain a protective order or other appropriate remedy, the recipient may (and shall cause its Representatives to) disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that is legally required to be disclosed and shall fully cooperate with disclosing party in its efforts to ensure that confidential treatment will be accorded to Confidential Information disclosed in such manner.
Nothing in the terms of this Agreement and any Statement of Work shall be construed to limit Inscale Technologies’ or Client’s right to independently develop or acquire products without the use of Confidential Information of the other party. Upon Client’s prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld, Inscale Technologies shall not be prohibited under this Agreement to use for any purpose the Residuals resulting from access to or work with Confidential Information, provided such party shall maintain the confidentiality of Confidential Information as provided in Sections 5,1, 5.2, and 5.3 and any other written confidentiality agreement between the parties. For purposes of this Agreement, “Residuals” shall mean technical information related to software technology in nontangible form, which may be retained in unaided memory by individuals who have had access, as permitted by this Agreement, to Confidential Information, where (i) such information constitutes general ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques, and (ii) such individuals (x) did not intentionally memorize the applicable idea, concept, know-how, or technique for the purpose of retaining or subsequently using or disclosing it, and (y) did not recall, in good faith, that the idea, concept, know-how, or technique constituted the Client’s Confidential Information. Neither Inscale Technologies nor Client shall have any obligation to limit or restrict the assignment of such individuals or to pay compensation resulting from the use of the Residuals in accordance with this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section shall not be construed to grant either Inscale Technologies or Client a license of the other party’s copyrights or other intellectual property.

IF CUSTOMER DOES NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF CUSTOMER DOES NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, CUSTOMER MUST NOT ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND MAY NOT USE THE INSCALE SERVICES. Customer may not access the Services if Customer is Inscale’s direct competitor, except with prior written consent from Inscale. In addition, Customer may not access the Services for purposes of monitoring their availability, performance or functionality, or for any other bench marking or competitive purposes.
Customer and Inscale Technologies, LLC (”Inscale”) (each individually a “Party” and jointly the “Parties”) hereby agree as follows:
1.1 Terms and Conditions. The terms and conditions of this Agreement apply to the software as a service offered by Inscale and any related work product (collectively “Services”), that Customer orders in an order form or other ordering document issued by Inscale (including any online forms) that specify the Services to be provided hereunder (each an “Order” and collectively, the “Orders.”) Services are made available utilizing the Saleforce.com (“SFDC”) online hosting platform and related services (“SFDC Services”), but the Services Terms and Conditions herein are specific to Inscale Services and exclude non-Inscale applications and SFDC Services, unless otherwise stated herein.
1.2 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with all Orders (collectively, the “Agreement”) represents the Parties’ entire understanding regarding the Services and shall control over any different or additional terms of a purchase order or other non-Inscale ordering document. No terms included in a non-Inscale ordering document shall apply to the Inscale Services.
1.3 Purchase Orders. If Customer provides a purchase order (“PO”) to Inscale, Inscale shall reference the PO number in the applicable Order. Customer expressly agrees that terms and conditions provided under such PO shall be of no force and effect. Customer will provide any required POs promptly on signing of the Order.
2.1 Services. On the terms and conditions set forth herein, Customer hereby engages Inscale on its behalf to perform those Services mutually agreed upon in written Orders, and Inscale hereby accepts such engagement.
2.4 User Subscriptions. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order Form, (i) Services are purchased as User subscriptions and may be accessed by no more than the specified number of Users, (ii) Customer shall have the right to add additional User subscriptions during the applicable subscription term at the same pricing as that for the pre-existing subscriptions thereunder, prorated for the remainder of the subscription term in effect at the time the additional User subscriptions are added, and (iii) the added User subscriptions shall terminate on the same date as the pre-existing subscriptions. User subscriptions are for designated Users only and cannot be shared or used by more than one User but may be reassigned to new Users replacing former Users who no longer require ongoing use of the Services. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Customer shall have the right to allow others to indirectly access the Services (including through integrations or APIs), provided, that, all such access in the aggregate with respect to a particular security access level shall require a single integration User license.
2.5 Usage Limitations. Usage limitations imposed by SFDC may affect the use of Inscale’s application. Customer’s usage must comply with the Salesforce Master Subscription Agreement posted at https://www.salesforce.com/content/dam/web/en_us/www/documents/legal/salesforce MSA.pdf in addition to the Master Subscription Agreement between the Parties. In the event of a conflict between these documents as to Salesforce’s responsibilities, rights, and liabilities, the terms of the Salesforce’s Master Subscription Agreement shall prevail. Usage limitations imposed by SFDC may affect the use of Inscale’s application. As such Services may be subject to other limitations by SFDC, such as, for example, limits on disk storage space, on the number of calls Customer is permitted to make against the Inscale application programming interface, and, for Services that enable Customer to provide public websites, on the number of page views by visitors to those websites. Any such limitations are specified in the User Guide. The Services provide real-time information to enable Customer to monitor compliance with such limitations.

6.FEES AND BILLING
6.1 Provision of Purchased Services. Inscale shall make the Services available to Customer pursuant to this Agreement and the relevant Order Forms during a subscription term.

(i) User subscription fees are based on services purchased and not actual usage, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iii) the number of User subscriptions purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term stated on the Order (provided, that Customer may decrease the number of User subscriptions for the next subscription term by providing notice to Inscale prior to the commencement of such term).

Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with a different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order. If the Order specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, Inscale will invoice Customer in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order. Unless otherwise stated in the Order, invoiced charges are due net 30 days from the invoice date. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Inscale and notifying Inscale of any changes to such information.

6.6 Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by Customer under this or any other agreement for Inscale services is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts Customer have authorized Inscale to charge to Customer credit card), Inscale may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer unpaid fee obligations under the Agreement so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend the services to Customer until such amounts are paid in full.

10.4 Irreparable Harm. In addition to all other legal or equitable remedies to which a disclosing Party may be entitled to enforce this Section, both parties acknowledge that any violation of Section 10 by the non-disclosing Party would cause irreparable harm to the disclosing Party and agree that the disclosing Party shall be entitled to an immediate injunction to prevent violations of Section 9 without the necessity of proving actual harm or posting bond.

If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information.
