You will pay all fees specified in your Order Form within thirty (30) days from the invoice date. You agree that we may send you invoices through the Services interface or email and you will maintain current contact and billing information with us. All fees are based on subscriptions purchased and not actual usage. Unless otherwise provided in the Order Form, all payment obligations are non-cancellable, and fees paid are non-refundable.
If any fees are 30 or more days overdue, we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, accelerate your unpaid fee obligations so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and may, in our discretion, suspend your and your Authorized Users’ access to the Services until such amounts are paid in full. If the applicable fees are under reasonable and good-faith dispute and you are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute, then we may choose not to exercise the rights stated in this paragraph.
Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, our fees do not include any taxes, including, without limitation, any sales, value-added, use, or withholding taxes, or other governmental charges. You are responsible for paying all taxes and charges associated with your purchases under this Agreement. If we have the legal obligation to pay or collect any taxes or charges for which you are responsible under this paragraph, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by you, unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
From time to time during the Term, either party may disclose or make available to the other party Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all confidential information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Confidential Information of each party shall include the terms and conditions of this Agreement, as well as business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by the Disclosing Party. Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party (a) is or becomes generally known to the public, (b) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party, or (c) is received from a third party by the Receiving Party; or (ii) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
Except as otherwise permitted in writing by the Disclosing Party, (i) the Receiving Party shall use the same degree of care not to disclose or use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but in no event less than reasonable care); and (ii) the Receiving Party shall limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its employees, contractors, and agents who need such access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those herein.
The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. 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.
For all ideas or feedback provided by you to us about the Services, regardless of what your submission states, the following terms shall apply: you agree that (i) your ideas or feedback will automatically become the property of PANDA AI, without compensation to you, and you hereby assign and agree to assign all its right, title, and interest in and to such to PANDA AI; and (ii) we can use the ideas or feedback for any purpose and in any way without future liability to you.
We may include your Organization’s name, trademark, and logo and identify you as our customer on our website or use such information in our marketing or promotional materials. You may send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask us to cease such use and we will comply upon receipt of such request in a timely manner.

9. Limitation of Liability.
IN NO EVENT WILL WE HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, (A) INCREASED COSTS, DIMINUTION IN VALUE OR LOST BUSINESS, PRODUCTION, REVENUES, OR PROFITS; (B) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION; (C) USE, INABILITY TO USE, LOSS, INTERRUPTION, DELAY OR RECOVERY OF ANY DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY; OR (D) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Any attempted assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. In no event shall either party be liable to the other party for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond such party’s reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, pandemic, denial-of-service attacks, a failure by a third-party hosting provider or utility provider, or passage of law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo.
