Customer represents and warrants that all such consents have been or will be obtained prior to authorizing any individual to become a User.

Customer will not, and will not permit any Users nor any third party to: reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code, object code or underlying structure, ideas or algorithms of the Services, Software, Hardware Tokens or any data related to the Services (except to the extent such prohibition is contrary to Applicable Law that cannot be excluded by the agreement of the parties); modify, translate, or create derivative works based on the Services or Software; share, rent, lease, loan, resell, sublicense, distribute, use or otherwise transfer the Services or Software for timesharing or service bureau purposes or for any purpose other than its own use, except as expressly provided in an applicable Order Form; or use the Services or Software other than in accordance with this Agreement and in compliance with Applicable Law.
PAYMENT OF FEES

Customer shall be responsible for all taxes related to the Services and this Agreement, exclusive of taxes on K-Sec Maritime Security’s income. Except as otherwise indicated in the applicable Order Form, all fees and expenses shall be in U.S. dollars. Unpaid and due Fees are subject to a finance charge of one percent (1.0%) per month, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, except to the extent Applicable Law requires a different interest or finance charge calculation for unpaid and due Fees and expenses. In the case of any withholding requirements, Customer will pay any required withholding itself and will not reduce the amount paid to K-Sec Maritime Security on account thereof. If the method of payment is by credit card, Customer agrees to (i) keep Customer’s credit card information updated and (ii) authorize charging Customer’s credit card the Fees when due. K-Sec Maritime Security will not charge Users any fees for their use of the Services or K-Sec Mobile Software without Customer’s authorization and the K-Sec Mobile Software can be downloaded by Users free of charge. Users’ carriers or service providers may charge fees for data usage, messaging, phone calls or other services that are required for them to use the Services.
5.2 Customer’s Order Form will indicate an initial allotment of Telephony Credits, if applicable. Customer may purchase additional Telephony Credits separately via the billing section of the K-Sec Admin Panel or by contacting a sales representative.
5.3 If a Customer uses only Free Services, K-Sec Maritime Security will not charge such Customer any Fees for use of such Free Services or download, installation or use of the Software associated with Free Services. Such Customer may discontinue using the Free Services at any time, but must immediately remove any Software from its devices.
5.4 At any time during the Term, and unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the parties, any increase or overage in the maximum number of Users specified in the Order Form will be treated in accordance with this Section 5.4 (a “Subscription Upgrade”). The maximum number of Users shall be increased as follows:
For Subscription Upgrades (i) for Customers where the maximum number of Users on the Order Form is fewer than 500 Users, the maximum number of Users will be increased automatically in increments equal to 50 Users, (ii) for Customers where the maximum number of Users on the Order Form is 500 - 1000 Users, the maximum number of Users will be increased automatically in increments equal to 100 Users, and (iii) for Customers where the maximum number of Users on the Order Form is 1001 or greater, the maximum number of Users will be increased automatically in increments equal to 250 Users.
K-Sec Maritime Security shall invoice Customer for the increase in the maximum number of Users at the subscription rate and payment terms specified in the most recent Order Form, prorated for the remainder of the then applicable subscription Term. For any future subscription Term, the number of Users and applicable Fees will reflect any Subscription Upgrades.
6.1 The term “Confidential Information” means any information disclosed by one party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”) in any form (written, oral, etc.) that is marked as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of the disclosure, including, without limitation: trade secrets; technology and technical information (intellectual property, inventions, know-how ideas and methods); business, financial and customer information (including Customer Data and Customer Personal Data); pricing, forecasts, strategies and product development plans; and/or the terms of this Agreement. Each party understands that the Disclosing Party has or may disclose Confidential Information in connection with this Agreement, but that Receiving Party shall receive no rights in, or licenses to, such Confidential Information.
6.2 The Receiving Party agrees: (i) not to disclose Confidential Information to any third person other than those of its employees, contractors, advisors, investors and potential acquirers (“Representatives”) with a need to have access thereto and who have entered into non-disclosure and non-use agreements applicable to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, and (ii) to use such Confidential Information solely as reasonably required in connection with the Services and/or this Agreement. Each party agrees to be responsible for any breach of this Agreement caused by any of its Representatives. The Receiving Party further agrees to take the same security precautions to protect against unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized use of such Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party that the party takes with its own confidential or proprietary information, but in no event will a party apply less than reasonable precautions to protect such Confidential Information. Each party acknowledges that the use of such precautions is not a guarantee against unauthorized disclosure or use. The Disclosing Party agrees that the foregoing will not apply with respect to any information that the Receiving Party can document: (a) is or becomes generally available to the public without any action by, or involvement of, the Receiving Party; or (b) was in its possession or known by it prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party; or (c) was rightfully disclosed to it without restriction by a third party; or (d) was independently developed without use of any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent the Receiving Party from disclosing Confidential Information as required in response to a request under applicable open records laws or pursuant to any judicial or governmental order, provided that, to the extent permitted by law, the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party reasonable prior notice to contest such disclosure. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer acknowledges that K-Sec Maritime Security utilizes the services of, and Customer may request additional services from, certain third parties in connection with K-Sec Maritime Security’s provision of the Services (such as data hosting and telephony service providers and Customer’s Third Party Services providers) and such third parties will have access to Customer’s Confidential Information, including Customer Data in accordance with this Agreement. The parties agree that Performance Data is not Confidential Information and will not be subject to any confidentiality restrictions or obligations.
6.3 Each party agrees that, upon the written request of the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party will promptly return to the Disclosing Party, or provide written certification of the destruction of, all Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, including all Confidential Information contained in internal documents, without retaining any copy, extract or summary of any part thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Receiving Party may retain copies of Confidential Information solely to the extent necessary for purposes of such party’s ordinary course internal document retention and backup requirements and procedures, provided that such Confidential Information shall remain subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement for so long as it is retained.
6.4 Customer acknowledges that K-Sec Maritime Security does not wish to receive any Confidential Information from Customer that is not necessary for K-Sec Maritime Security to perform its obligations under this Agreement, and, unless the parties specifically agree otherwise, K-Sec Maritime Security may reasonably presume that any unrelated information received from Customer is not confidential or Confidential Information, unless such information is marked as “Confidential.”

Except as expressly set forth herein, K-Sec Maritime Security alone (and its licensors, where applicable) will retain all Intellectual Property Rights relating to the Services or the Software or any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by Customer or any third party relating to the Services and/or the Software, which are hereby assigned to K-Sec Maritime Security. Customer will not copy, distribute, reproduce or use any of the foregoing except as expressly permitted under this Agreement. As between the parties, K-Sec Maritime Security owns all Performance Data.

8.1 In this Section 8, the terms “personal data,” “data processor,” “data subject,” “process and processing” and “data controller” shall be as defined in the applicable Data Protection Laws. For the purposes of the Data Protection Laws, as between Customer and K-Sec Maritime Security, the parties agree that Customer shall at all times be the data controller and K-Sec Maritime Security shall be the data processor with respect to the processing of Customer Personal Data in connection with Customer’s use of the Services. Solely if and to the extent K-Sec Maritime Security is processing personal data, as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation, that is contained in Customer Data on Customer’s behalf, then the terms of the data processing agreement available at https://K-Sec.com/legal/gdpr-data-protection-addendum shall apply to such processing and are incorporated into this Agreement.
8.2 Customer may enable integrations between the Services and certain of its Third Party Services (each, an “Integration”). By enabling an Integration between the Services and its Third Party Services, Customer is expressly instructing K-Sec Maritime Security to share the Customer Data necessary to facilitate the Integration. Customer is responsible for providing any and all instructions to the Third Party Service provider about the use and protection of Customer Data. K-Sec Maritime Security and Third Party Service providers are not subprocessors of each other.

K-Sec Maritime Security will provide Customer with its security policy, upon request, that sets forth the technical specifications and the detailed measures taken to protect the security and confidentiality of Customer Personal Data.
8.5 Customer may, upon at least thirty (30) days prior notice, and no more than once per 12 month period, appoint an independent third party auditor to physically inspect and audit, at Customer’s sole cost and expense, any facilities owned or controlled by K-Sec Maritime Security in which Customer Personal Data is processed or stored, provided that such inspection: (i) shall occur on a mutually agreed upon date during K-Sec Maritime Security’s regular business hours; (ii) does not interfere with any of K-Sec Maritime Security’s business operations; and, (iii) does not, in K-Sec Maritime Security’s reasonable discretion, create any risk to the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of any data stored or processed by K-Sec Maritime Security. Prior to any audit, Customer, and any appointed auditor, must enter into a nondisclosure and confidentiality agreement as may be required by K-Sec Maritime Security.
For Customers enrolled in one of the editions of Services requiring purchase, K-Sec Maritime Security shall indemnify and hold Customer harmless from liability to third parties resulting from infringement by the Services of any patent or any copyright or misappropriation of any trade secret, provided K-Sec Maritime Security is promptly notified of any and all threats, claims and proceedings related thereto and given reasonable assistance and the opportunity to assume sole control over defense and settlement; K-Sec Maritime Security will not be responsible for any settlement it does not approve. The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to portions or components of the Services (i) not created by K-Sec Maritime Security, (ii) resulting in whole or in part from Customer specifications, (iii) that are modified after delivery by K-Sec Maritime Security, (iv) combined with other products, processes or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (v) where Customer continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (vi) where Customer’s use of Services is not strictly in accordance with this Agreement and all related Documentation. If K-Sec Maritime Security receives information about an actual or alleged infringement or misappropriation claim that would be subject to indemnification rights set forth in this Section 9, K-Sec Maritime Security shall have the option, at its expense, to: (a) modify the Software to be non-infringing; or (b) obtain for Customer a license to continue using the Software. If K-Sec Maritime Security determines it is not commercially reasonable to perform either of the above options, then K-Sec Maritime Security may at its option elect to terminate the license for the Services and refund the unearned portion of any pre-paid subscription Fees, prorated on a monthly basis. THIS SECTION STATES CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION AND/OR CLAIMS ALLEGING INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION. Customer will indemnify K-Sec Maritime Security from all damages, costs, settlements, attorneys’ fees and expenses related to any claim related to Customer’s breach of Section 3 “Customer Responsibilities,” Section 4 “Restrictions,” Section 7 “Intellectual Property Rights; Ownership” or Section 8 “Data Protection.” K-Sec Maritime Security’s obligations under this Section 9 do not apply to Customer’s use of Free Services.
10.1 Subject to earlier termination as expressly provided for in this Agreement, the initial Term of this Agreement shall be for the Term specified in the Order Form, or in the event of multiple Order Forms, until the Term of all Order Forms has expired. Each Order Form and this Agreement shall automatically renew after the initial Term and any renewal Term for a renewal Term equal to the expiring subscription Term, unless either party provides to the other at least forty-five (45) days prior written notice that it will not renew. The Fees per User for each renewal Term will be equal to the Fees per User for the immediately prior Term, plus a price increase. Any pricing increase will not exceed seven percent (7%) per year, unless the pricing was designated in the applicable Order Form as promotional or one-time; provided, however, the Fees for each renewal Term shall not exceed the list price as of the start date of such renewal Term.
10.2 In the event of any material breach of this Agreement by either party (other than Customer’s payment obligations), the non-breaching party may terminate this Agreement prior to the end of the Term by giving thirty (30) days prior written notice to the breaching party; provided, however, that this Agreement will not terminate if the breaching party has cured the breach prior to the expiration of such thirty-day period. If Customer fails to pay any Fees or other amounts in the applicable Order Form in accordance with the Payment Schedule, K-Sec Maritime Security may terminate this Agreement prior to the end of the Term by giving five (5) business days prior written notice to Customer; provided, however, that this Agreement will not terminate if Customer has paid all Fees and other amounts in the applicable Order Form prior to the expiration of such five business-day period.
10.3 Either party may terminate this Agreement, without notice, (i) upon the institution or if a petition is filed, notice is given, a resolution is passed or an order is made, in each case by or against the other party under Applicable Law relating to insolvency, administration, liquidation, receivership, bankruptcy or any other winding up proceedings, (ii) upon the other party’s making an assignment for the benefit of creditors or making a voluntary arrangement with its creditors, (iii) upon the other party’s dissolution or ceasing, or threatening to cease to do business or (iv) if any event occurs, or proceeding is instituted, with respect to the other party that has the equivalent or similar effect to any of the events mentioned in Section 10.3(i) through (iii). Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, K-Sec Maritime Security may, without penalty or liability and with or without notice, modify or discontinue its provision of Free Services at any time and to the extent Customer is only using Free Services immediately terminate this Agreement.
10.4 The Sections of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, including but not limited to Sections 3 through 14, will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement. No refund of Fees shall be due in any amount on account of termination by K-Sec Maritime Security pursuant to this Section 10. In the event of termination by Customer pursuant to this Section 10, Customer shall be entitled as its sole and exclusive remedy, to receive a refund of any pre-paid subscription Fees paid by Customer to K-Sec Maritime Security for Services not rendered as of the termination date.
