For clarity, the foregoing license rights granted by MailUp to Client under this Agreement specifically include the license and right::
3.2 Sublicense. The foregoing limited license provides Client the right to sub-license and make available access and use rights to the Software to:
Except for the limited usage rights Client may grant to Users and Third Party Service Providers and except for the assignment or transfer by Client to any of its Affiliates, the license rights granted in this Agreement are not transferable and not assignable to third parties.
3.3. Restrictions. The License rights to the Software granted in this Agreement are for Client’s and its customers’ internal business purposes and Client shall not license, distribute or otherwise grant rights in the Software to its Users except as embedded, linked, bundled with, or otherwise incorporated into the Client Applications. Client shall not market, sublicense or resell the Software as a stand-alone product or services offering. Client shall not knowingly or intentionally grant to any User greater license rights to the Software than the rights granted to Client under this Agreement and shall cause each customer to enter into a written license agreement prior to users of such customer being given access to the Software, which contains license restrictions with respect to the Software at least as restrictive as those provided in this Agreement and the restrictions applicable to the Client Software Packages. Client will not make any representation or warranty on behalf of MailUp concerning the use, availability or features of the Software or the Editor.
3.4. Consumer legal framework. Client is aware and expressly accepts that the Software is an instrument reserved to professional users, and therefore this Agreement is not subject to the legal framework applicable to agreements with consumers.
3.5. Subcontractors. MailUp may from time to time in its discretion engage third parties to perform Services (each, a “Subcontractor“).
Client shall not, and shall not permit any other person to, access or use the Software or MailUp Materials except as expressly permitted by this Agreement. For purposes of clarity and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Client shall not, except as this Agreement expressly permits:
Client shall inform its Users about such non-authorized uses. In the event that MailUp becomes aware of the use of the Software in breach of the above provisions by Client or its Users, MailUp reserves the right to immediately and definitively block access to and use of the Software and/or to terminate this Agreement for breach in accordance with Section 8.3 of this Agreement.
5.1. MailUp Systems and Security Obligations. MailUp will employ security measures in accordance with applicable industry practice (“Privacy and Security Policy“).
5.2. Client username and password. Client shall employ all physical, administrative and technical controls, screening and security procedures and other safeguards necessary to maintain the confidentiality of its account and password, with respect to both Access Credentials and Application Keys, and Client agrees to notify MailUp promptly of any known unauthorized access or of any reasonably suspected breach of its account’s security. Client shall be liable for losses incurred by MailUp and/or another party due to a third party using Client’s account or password.
6.1. Escrow Agreement. If selected by Client, within thirty (30) days MailUp shall establish an escrow account with EscrowTech International, Inc. (the “Escrow Agent”) providing for the deposit of Source Materials into escrow for the benefit of Client as beneficiary thereunder. For this purpose, MailUp, Client and the Escrow Agent will enter into a mutually acceptable escrow agreement and beneficiary enrollment documents to establish such escrow account and name Client as a beneficiary thereunder (collectively, the “Escrow Agreement”). Throughout the Term thereafter, MailUp shall cause the then-current version of the Software to be deposited with the Escrow Agent under the Escrow Agreement on May 1 and November 1 of each calendar year and on such other date as MailUp delivers any custom enhancements or issues any subsequent release of the Software. MailUp shall be responsible to pay directly to the Escrow Agent, the Escrow Agent’s fees associated with such deposits of the Source Materials as are made by MailUp under the Escrow Agreement for Client’s direct benefit. MailUp shall also be responsible for any fees or expenses under the Escrow Agreement to maintain Client’s status as a beneficiary under the Escrow Agreement. Release triggers under the Escrow Agreement shall at all times include the following events: (i) MailUp ceases to pay its debts as they come due (becomes “Insolvent”) or ceases to carry on business; (ii) bankruptcy or similar proceeding of MailUp; and (iii) Unavailability of the Editor for a period of eight (8) consecutive calendar days that is not attributable to a Force Majeure Event, and MailUp fails to cure such default within two (2) days after receiving written notice of the failure from Client. In no event will a dispute between with the parties with respect to Service Level or the parties’ obligations under this Agreement constitute a triggering event. The Software reaching end of life will not constitute a triggering event as long as there is an available migration or upgrade path available to Client.
If one of the foregoing release triggers occurs and Client elects to exercise its right to access the Source Materials as permitted under the Escrow Agreement, use of the Escrow Materials by Client shall be subject to license grant set forth herein, in accordance with the restrictions defined by Section 3.3. As used in this Agreement the term “Source Materials” shall mean the human-readable code from which a computer can compile or assemble the object code or machine executable version of the Software (including any enhanced or customized versions thereof), together with any documentation in the possession of MailUp which would assist a third party in operating and maintaining the Software.
6.2. Escrow Fee. For the purpose of signing the Escrow Agreement, Client shall pay to MailUp an annual recurring fee available at https://beefree.io/bee-plugin/pricing/ (the “Escrow Fee”). MailUp shall invoice Client for any Escrow Fees separately from the invoicing of the Subscription Fees. Such invoice shall be paid by Client within thirty (30) calendar days from the invoice date.
6.2. Title 11. If, at any time during the Term, MailUp is Insolvent or seeks protection from creditors, the Parties agree that the Software and each portion and component thereof as well as the license rights to them are the subject matter of this Agreement and each of them are agreed to be “intellectual property” as that term is defined and construed under Title 11 U.S.C. Section 101 in effect as of the Effective Date (“Title 11”). This Agreement is further intended to be an executory contract under Title 11 and: (a) Client as a licensee of MailUp’s intellectual property shall be a licensee and shall be afforded all of the protections of a licensee under Section 365(n) of Title 11; and (b) MailUp shall be deemed to be a debtor/licensor under Section 365(n) of Title 11.
7.1. Client Applications and Cooperation. Client shall at all times during the Term: (a) set up, maintain and operate in good repair and in accordance with the Specifications all Client Applications; (b) provide MailUp personnel with such access to Client Applications as is necessary for MailUp for troubleshooting and to provide the Software in accordance with the availability requirement and Specifications; and (c) provide all cooperation and assistance as MailUp may reasonably request to enable MailUp to exercise its rights and perform its obligations under and in connection with this Agreement.
7.2. Effect of Client Failure or Delay. MailUp is not responsible or liable for any delay or failure of performance caused in whole or in part by Client’s delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under this Agreement.
7.3. Corrective Action and Notice. If Client becomes aware of any actual or threatened activity prohibited by Section 4, Client shall, and shall cause its Users to, immediately: (a) take all reasonable and lawful measures within their respective control that are necessary to stop the activity or threatened activity and to mitigate its effects (including, where applicable, by discontinuing and preventing any unauthorized access to the Software and MailUp Materials and permanently erasing from their systems and destroying any data to which any of them have gained unauthorized access); and (b) notify MailUp of any such actual or threatened activity.
8.1. Initial Term. This Agreement will be effective commencing on the Effective Date and will remain in effect for the duration selected by Client (the “Initial Term”) unless and until terminated according to the provisions of this Section 8.
8.2. Renewal. This Agreement will automatically renew (“Renewal”) for additional successive terms having a duration equal to the Initial Term (such successive terms, together with the Initial Term, constitute the “Term”), unless earlier terminated pursuant to this Agreement’s express provisions or Client gives notice of non-renewal by using the “Cancel my subscription” tool (exact wording may change over time), which will be effective at the expiration of the current Term. In consideration of the availability of the Software, Client will be required to pay the Fees for the entire current Term, even if it does not use the Software.
8.3. Termination. In addition to any other express termination right set forth elsewhere in this Agreement,
8.4. Effect of Expiration or Termination. Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, except as expressly otherwise provided in this Agreement:

Client shall pay the Subscription Fees for the Initial Term and for any Renewal in the timeframe and in accordance with the methods indicated in the initial online order and any subsequent orders.

MailUp is hereby authorized to implement a recurring credit card payment of the Subscription Fees by processing an automatic pre-authorized charge of the amount of the Subscription Fees for the use of the Software for the Term, subject to termination which may be carried out by Client in accordance with the procedures and timeframes provided under Section 9..
9.3. Additional User Fees and Additional MSAPI Call Fees. At the end of each Term, Subscription Fees will be adjusted to reflect any increase in the number of Users and MSAPI Calls. Client declares that:
9.4. Failure to Pay. If upon automatic Renewal of this Agreement the pre-authorized charge were unsuccessful for any reason (merely by way of example and without any limitation: expired credit card or inexistence of the necessary funds), MailUp shall inform Client via electronic mail written notice sent to the email address provided by Client in the Registration Form. Client shall have fourteen (14) calendar days from receipt of such notice to cure the breach. If the breach is not cured within such fourteen (14) calendar day period, MailUp shall have the right to suspend performance of the Software without further notice without incurring any obligation or liability to Client or any other person by reason of such suspension, block access and use of the Software, and to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.3(b) without prejudice to MailUp’s further rights. The Parties agree that in the event of delay in the payment of the fees, MailUp may charge interest at a rate of 1.5% per month, or the highest rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is lower. Client shall reimburse MailUp for all reasonable costs incurred by MailUp in collecting any late payments or interest, including attorneys’ fees, court costs and collection agency fees.
9.5. Outstanding Fees. If Client incurs Additional User Fees and/or Additional MSAPI Call Fees higher than $1,000.00 (one thousand/00 USD) at any time during the Term, MailUp reserves the right to process a new payment for the total of the outstanding fees.
9.6. Taxes. All fees and other amounts payable by Client under this Agreement are exclusive of taxes and assessments. Client is responsible for all sales, use 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 on any amounts payable by Client hereunder, other than any taxes imposed on MailUp’s income.
9.7. No Deductions or Setoffs. All amounts payable to MailUp under this Agreement shall be paid by Client to MailUp in full without any setoff, recoupment, counterclaim, deduction, debit or withholding for any reason.
9.8. Fees Increases. MailUp may increase the Fees by providing written notice to Client at least thirty (30) days’ before the commencement date of any Term. The new rates will be applied from the date of renewal of the Agreement and will be kept unchanged at least for the next Term. In the event that Client does not intend to accept such changes, Client must cancel the subscription in accordance with Section 8.2 of this Agreement. In the event of cancellation submitted beyond the aforesaid deadline, the new rates shall be considered accepted by Client and will be legally applied.
10.1. Service Level; Availability Guaranty. For free Subscription Plans, MailUp will fulfill service level agreements and provide Availability on a commercially reasonable efforts basis. For paid Subscription Plans, MailUp guarantees that the Editor will be Available 99.5% of the time each calendar month, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (the “Availability Guaranty”).
10.2. Exclusions. This Editor Availability Guaranty does not cover Unavailability resulting from (i) Scheduled Downtime (as defined below); (ii) factors outside of MailUp’s reasonable control, including, without limitation (a) any Force Majeure Event, (b) issues derived from services that are not directly delivered by MailUp and whose availability is outside of MailUp’s control, including without limitation the availability of an Internet connection at Client’s location,(c) software or hardware problems that are affecting Client’s computers, (d) results of any actions or inactions of User or any third party (other than MailUp’s Subcontractors); and (e) results from any User’s applications, equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology not under MailUp’s direct control; (iii) alpha, beta or not otherwise generally available versions of the Software, or (iv) loss of access to the Software that is of little or no significance in the Client’s day-to-day operation of the Editor (collectively, the “Exclusions“).
10.3 Monitoring of Availability. Availability of the Editor is measured by employing both in-house and independent monitoring systems. Independent monitoring systems are selected by MailUp among the highest rated systems available in the marketplace, may change over time, and currently include, but are not limited to, Pingdom AB. Measurements of Software and Editor’s general availability are available at http://status.beefree.io/.
10.4 Scheduled Downtime. MailUp will use commercially reasonable efforts to give Client at least fourteen (14) days prior notice of all scheduled outages of the Software (“Scheduled Downtime“).
10.5. Service Credit. As Client’s sole remedy and MailUp sole liability for failure to achieve the Availability Guaranty, MailUp will issue a credit against future Subscription Fees and any amounts otherwise due by Client (“Service Credit“) if the uptime of the Editor falls below 99.5% in any calendar month, calculated as follows:
“Monthly Fees” are calculated as one-twelfth of the Service Fee that would be payable by the Client over a one-year period. No refunds or cash value will be given, provided, however, that availability measured below 95% for more than two months in a row constitutes material breach of this Agreement and the Client may give MailUp notice of immediate termination of this Agreement and MailUp shall refund the applicable Monthly Fee corresponding to the remaining Term. Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other MailUp account.
To apply for a Service Credit, Client must submit a request to email@example.com within ten (10) days from the time Client becomes eligible to receive the applicable Service Credit. The request must include: (a) “SLA Claim” as the subject of the ticket; (b) the dates and times of Unavailability for which a credit is being claimed; (c) any documentation of the applicable Unavailability. Each Service Credit will be applied to future amounts payable by Client in connection with the applicable MailUp product.
All Unavailability is subject to independent verification in MailUp’s reasonable discretion. Service Credits are the sole remedy for Unavailability of the Editor or the Software or MailUp failure to meet the monthly Availability Guaranty. Client shall not be entitled to any Service Credit in case of failure or delay in submitting a request for Service Credit.
10.6. Support. For free Subscription Plans, MailUp will not provide any direct support to Client, but online manuals and other documentation is available at https://support.beefree.io/ and https://docs.beefree.io/. For paid Subscription Plans, MailUp undertakes to provide technical assistance related to the proper functioning of the Software using one of the following procedures selected and purchased by Client:
11.1. Warranties by the Client. The Client represents and warrants that:
In the event of any breach, or reasonably anticipated breach, of any of Client’s warranties herein, in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity, MailUp will have the right to immediately, in MailUp’s sole discretion, suspend the access and use of the Software if deemed reasonably necessary by MailUp to prevent any harm to MailUp or its business.

11.3. EXCEPT FOR THE FOREGOING, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, AND CLIENT’S USE OF THE SOFTWARE IS AT ITS OWN RISK.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, MAILUP MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND THAT THE SERVICES OR MAILUP MATERIALS, OR ANY PRODUCTS OR RESULTS OF THE USE THEREOF, WILL MEET CLIENT’S OR ANY OTHER PERSON’S REQUIREMENTS, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY SOFTWARE, SYSTEM OR OTHER SERVICES EXCEPT IF AND TO THE EXTENT EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THE SPECIFICATIONS, OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, FREE OF HARMFUL CODE OR ERROR FREE.

The foregoing obligation does not apply to any Action or Losses arising out of or relating to any:
12.3. Indemnification Procedure. Each party shall promptly notify the other party in writing of any Action for which such party believes it is entitled to be indemnified pursuant to Section 12.1 or Section 12.2, as the case may be.

The Indemnitor shall immediately take control of the defense and investigation of such Action and shall employ counsel of its choice to handle and defend the same, at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitee’s failure to perform any obligations under this Section 12.3 will not relieve the Indemnitor of its obligations under this Section 12 except to the extent that the Indemnitor can demonstrate that it has been prejudiced as a result of such failure. The Indemnitee may participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense with counsel of its own choosing.
12.4. Mitigation.

THIS SECTION 12 SETS FORTH CLIENT’S SOLE REMEDIES AND MAILUP’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY SUBJECT MATTER HEREOF (INCLUDING THE SOFTWARE AND MAILUP MATERIALS) INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY THIRD-PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT.

Client recognizes that MailUp is always innovating and finding ways to improve the Software with new features and services. Therefore, Client agrees that the Software may change from time to time and no warranty, representation or other commitment is given in relation to the continuity of any functionality of the Software.
