SaaS Terms and Conditons
Software as a Service (SaaS) Terms of Service THESE SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE (SAAS) TERMS OF SERVICE (“SaaS Terms”) GOVERN CUSTOMER’S LICENSE AND ACCESS TO, AND USE OF, SPECTRABOTICS’ SAAS SERVICES. BY EXECUTING AN ORDER FORM THAT REFERENCES THESE SAAS TERMS, CUSTOMER ACCEPTS AND AGREES TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS HEREOF. CUSTOMER HAS NO RIGHT TO USE ANY SAAS SERVICES OTHER THAN PURSUANT TO AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE SAAS TERMS.
- Definitions. In addition to the capitalized terms defined upon first use in these SaaS Terms, certain capitalized terms are defined in the Schedule of Definitions included at the end of these SaaS Terms.
- Scope of Agreement.
- The capitalized term “SaaS Agreement” when used herein refers to the terms of an Order Form (insofar as such terms pertain to SaaS Services), together with these SaaS Terms. If the Parties enter into more than one Order Form, then each additional Order Form shall be deemed to form a new and separate SaaS Agreement between the Parties (and the phrase “this SaaS Agreement” shall be deemed to reference the particular SaaS Agreement required by the context, independently of and separately from each other SaaS Agreement or other agreement between the Parties), unless the additional Order Form specifically states that it is supplementing and amending an existing Order Form.
- If Customer also purchases Professional Services pursuant to an Order Form, such Professional Services shall be governed exclusively by the SPECTRABOTICS Professional Services Terms, which can be located at https://www.spectrabotics.com/legal/. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing contained in this SaaS Agreement shall require the Customer to purchase, or SPECTRABOTICS to provide, Professional Services.
- Provision and Use of Subscription Services.
- During the applicable Subscription Period, SPECTRABOTICS shall provide the Subscription Services to Customer on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this SaaS Agreement.
- SPECTRABOTICS is responsible for the deployment, operation, management and hosting of the Subscription Services, including the provisioning and maintenance of all server-side hardware, software and telecommunications capacity. Customer is responsible for all hardware, software, connectivity and related infrastructure required for Customer and Authorized Users to access and use the Subscription Services.
- SPECTRABOTICS shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Subscription Services are available for use by Authorized Users twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week, excluding any periods of time during which the Subscription Services are not available for use due to scheduled maintenance, emergency maintenance or Force Majeure Events.
- Customer is solely responsible for the security and proper creation, use and termination of all Authorized User IDs, passwords and other security devices used in connection with the Subscription Services and shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that they are kept confidential and secure, are used properly and are not disclosed to unauthorized Persons. Customer shall immediately inform SPECTRABOTICS if there is any reason to believe that a user ID, password, or any other security device has or is likely to become known to any Person not authorized to use it, or is being or is likely to be used in an unauthorized way. SPECTRABOTICS reserves the right (at its sole discretion) to require Customer to change any or all of the user IDs, passwords or other security devices used by Customer in connection with the Subscription Services, and Customer shall promptly comply with any such requirement. If the Order Form specifies a maximum number of Authorized Users for Customer’s subscription, then each Authorized User must be a unique individual and Customer shall be responsible for ensuring that the maximum number is not exceeded. An Authorized User license may be permanently transferred from a former authorized User (such as an individual whose employment by Customer terminates) to a replacement Authorized User, but two or more individuals may not share a single Authorized User login.
- Customer is solely responsible for its relationships with all Authorized Users and Affiliates of Customer, for their use of the Subscription Services, and for ensuring that they comply with all the terms and conditions of this SaaS Agreement. Any violation of the terms and/or conditions of this SaaS Agreement by an Authorized User or Affiliate of Customer shall be deemed to be a violation by Customer of such terms and conditions.
- SPECTRABOTICS shall maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards designed to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Data. SPECTRABOTICS shall not access or use Customer Data except in connection with providing, supporting and maintaining the Subscription Services. Customer is solely responsible for all other aspects of Customer Data, including its sourcing, inputting, management, accuracy, quality, results and the privacy of protected personal information.
- Rights and Limitations of Use.
- Subject to the terms and conditions of this SaaS Agreement (including Customer’s payment obligations hereunder), SPECTRABOTICS grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right and license during the applicable Subscription Period: (a) to access and use, and permit Authorized Users to access and use, the Subscription Services and Documentation solely for the Permitted Purpose; and (b) to the extent SPECTRABOTICS makes available to Customer, by way of download or other form of distribution, any pre-defined report formats, software components, tools, materials or technology intended for use in connection with the Subscription Services, to store, install, execute and use the same internally within Customer’s organization, solely in connection with Customer’s authorized use of the Subscription Services.
- Except for the rights granted in Section 4.1, no other rights in or to any SaaS Services or SPECTRABOTICS IP, express or implied, are granted to Customer. Without limiting the foregoing, except to the extent expressly authorized by this SaaS Agreement, Customer may not: (a) transfer to any other Person any of its rights to use Subscription Services; (b) sell, rent, lease or share any Subscription Services; (c) permit any Person who is not an Authorized User to use or access any Subscription Services; (d) use any Subscription Services other than for the Permitted Purpose; (e) use any Subscription Services to provide outsourcing, service bureau, hosting, application service provider or online services to third Persons; (f) create any derivative works based upon any Subscription Services or SPECTRABOTICS IP; (g) copy any feature, design or graphic in any Subscription Services or SPECTRABOTICS IP; (h) attempt to circumvent any security device or access or derive the source code or architecture of any Subscription Services or SPECTRABOTICS IP; (i) use or access any Subscription Services or SPECTRABOTICS IP in order to build a competitive solution or to assist someone else to build a competitive solution; (j) load or penetration test the Subscription Services or otherwise use any Subscription Services in any way that is, or could reasonably be expected to be, detrimental to SPECTRABOTICS’ ability to provide services to any other customer; (k) use any Subscription Services to access the data of any other customer of SPECTRABOTICS; (l) alter, remove or conceal any government restricted rights notice or any copyright, trademark, trade name or other proprietary marking or notice that may appear in or on the Subscription Services, the Documentation or any other SPECTRABOTICS IP; (m) use the Subscription Services in a manner that violates any applicable law, ordinance, regulation or administrative order; or (o) permit any other Person to do any of the foregoing.
- SPECTRABOTICS shall make available to Customer standard technical support (“Standard Support”) with respect to the Subscription Services as such Standard Support is described and updated from time to time at https://www.spectrabotics.com/legal/. Standard Support shall only be provided to a maximum of two (2) Customer Designated Representatives who have been appropriately trained with respect to the use of the Subscription Services. Other Authorized Users shall use the Documentation and rely on the Customer Designated Representatives for support. SPECTRABOTICS shall not be obligated to provide technical support to other Authorized Users or outside of SPECTRABOTICS’ normal support hours.
- Customer acknowledges that the SaaS Services were not designed or produced to Customer’s individual requirements and that Customer is solely responsible for confirming that the Subscription Services meet such requirements. Customer further acknowledges that the SaaS Services are based on a standardized service platform made available by SPECTRABOTICS to a variety of customers. SPECTRABOTICS will make available to Customer as part of the Subscription Services the error corrections and improvements that SPECTRABOTICS makes available to its customers generally as part of their subscription to the Subscription Services, but specifically excluding any new products, offerings, modules, functionality or features for which SPECTRABOTICS charges a separate fee, unless Customer separately purchases a license or subscription thereto. SPECTRABOTICS reserves the right to make changes to the Subscription Services. If any such changes materially diminishes the functionality and value of the Subscription Services as a whole, then: (a) SPECTRABOTICS shall notify Customer at least sixty (60) days prior to implementing such change (except in cases where SPECTRABOTICS determines that expedited implementation is required); and (b) if Customer disapproves of any such change that materially diminishes the functionality and value of the Subscription Services as a whole, Customer shall have the right, exercisable no later than thirty (30) days after such change has been implemented, as Customer’s sole remedy, to terminate this SaaS Agreement upon notice to SPECTRABOTICS and recover a refund of prepaid subscription fees pursuant to Section 10.6(d). Customer agrees that its subscription to the Subscription Services is not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any statements made by SPECTRABOTICS regarding possible future functionality or features.

- Customer shall pay all fees and charges as specified in each Order Form. Except as otherwise set forth in this SaaS Agreement, all payment obligations under an Order Form are non-cancelable and amounts paid are non-refundable. Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form, all fees and charges for the initial Subscription Period are due upon the effective date of such Order Form, and Customer shall pay all other fees and charges within thirty (30) days of the date of SPECTRABOTICS’ invoice therefor.
- SPECTRABOTICS may charge Customer interest at the rate of one-point-five percent (1.5%) per month (or the highest rate allowable by law, if less) for any past due amounts, from the date payment was due until the date paid, other than with respect to any amount disputed by Customer in good faith where Customer is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute. Customer shall bear any costs (including attorneys’ fees and costs) incurred by SPECTRABOTICS in collecting any amounts due hereunder.
- SPECTRABOTICS reserves the right to increase any fees at any time, provided that no increase of the subscription fee payable by Customer for the Subscription Services shall take effect until the start of the next Subscription Period following SPECTRABOTICS’ notice to Customer of such fee increase, sent no later than sixty (60) days prior to the start of such Subscription Period.
- Customer shall pay any sales, use, value added and other taxes and import duties (other than corporate income taxes payable by SPECTRABOTICS) due as a result of any amounts paid by Customer to SPECTRABOTICS under any Order Form.
- Customer shall not charge any fee to SPECTRABOTICS related to invoice processing, and shall pay or reimburse SPECTRABOTICS for any such fee charged by any third party that Customer requires SPECTRABOTICS to use in connection with processing SPECTRABOTICS’ invoices to Customer.
- Each Party represents and warrants to the other Party that: (a) it has the full power and authority to enter into this SaaS Agreement and perform its obligations under this SaaS Agreement; and (b) the execution, delivery and performance of this SaaS Agreement by it does not violate, conflict with or constitute a default under any agreement or instrument to which it is a party or by which it is bound, or any applicable law, regulation or order of any court or other tribunal, except where such violation, conflict or default would not materially impair such Party’s performance of its obligations or the other Party’s enjoyment of its rights under this SaaS Agreement.
- SPECTRABOTICS further warrants to Customer that: (a) the Subscription Services will function substantially in accordance with the applicable Documentation; and (b) it will use a generally commercially available virus detection or scanning program to test the Subscription Services for the presence of viruses. In the event of any nonconformance with any of the warranties specified in this Section 7.2, Customer will promptly (and in no event later than thirty (30) days after the non-conforming services were provided) notify SPECTRABOTICS of such nonconformance and SPECTRABOTICS will, following receipt of such notice from Customer, use commercially reasonable efforts to make available to Customer a conforming version of the Subscription Service. If SPECTRABOTICS fails to do so within thirty (30) days, and such nonconformance has the effect of materially diminishing the functionality and value of the Subscription Services as a whole, then Customer shall have the right to terminate this SaaS Agreement upon notice and recover the subscription fees paid to SPECTRABOTICS, pursuant to Section 10.6(d); provided, however, that such termination shall not be permitted if, within such thirty (30) day period, SPECTRABOTICS has provided Customer with reasonable assurances that such nonconformance will be remedied within a reasonable period of time. The foregoing sets forth the exclusive remedies of Customer, and the sole liability of SPECTRABOTICS, in the event of any nonconformance with any of the warranties set forth in this Section 7.2 or otherwise with respect to any errors, service interruptions or other problems with the Subscription Services.
- EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION 7, SPECTRABOTICS IS PROVIDING THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES “AS IS” AND SPECTRABOTICS DOES NOT MAKE, AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES OR THEIR PERFORMANCE HEREUNDER, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN PARTICULAR, SPECTRABOTICS DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S EXPECTATIONS OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, ERROR-FREE, OR OPERATE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED BASIS OR IN COMBINATION WITH ANY OTHER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE OR SYSTEM. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, SPECTRABOTICS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE INTERNET, FORCE MAJEURE OR CUSTOMER’S OR ANY AUTHORIZED USER’S NETWORK OR ABILITY TO ACCESS THE INTERNET.

SPECTRABOTICS DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT ANY LEGAL SUBJECT MATTER OR OTHER INFORMATION INCLUDED IN ANY SPECTRABOTICS DOCUMENTATION, TEMPLATE, REPORT OR OTHER OUTPUT GENERATED FROM ANY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE OR OTHERWISE USED AND/OR MADE AVAILABLE BY SPECTRABOTICS IS ACCURATE, COMPLETE, CURRENT, LEGAL, LEGALLY EFFECTIVE OR VALID UNDER THE LAWS OF ANY JURISDICTION, OR FIT FOR ANY PURPOSE WHATSOEVER. BY PROVIDING THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES AND/OR MAKING ANY SUCH INFORMATION AVAILABLE, SPECTRABOTICS IS NOT PROVIDING LEGAL ADVICE AND NONE OF CUSTOMER OR ITS AUTHORIZED USERS SHALL USE THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES OR ANY SUCH INFORMATION AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR LEGAL ADVICE.
- SPECTRABOTICS shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Customer and its employees and agents from and against any loss, cost, damage or expense (but specifically excluding any indemnified Person’s attorneys’ fees and costs) in respect of any claim, demand, action, suit or other judicial proceeding asserted, brought or threatened by a third Person (each a “Claim”) alleging that the Subscription Services as provided by SPECTRABOTICS hereunder infringe any third Person’s rights in any copyright, trademark or United States or European Union patent, except to the extent the Claim (a) relates to Customer Data or other materials provided by or on behalf of Customer or its Authorized Users; (b) relates to the actual or alleged infringement of inventions, technologies or methods in widespread unlicensed use by third Persons at the time the Subscription Services have been used by Customer; or (c) is otherwise subject to Customer’s indemnification obligations under Section 8.2.

- Customer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless SPECTRABOTICS and its Affiliates and their respective employees and agents from and against any loss, cost, damage or expense (but specifically excluding attorneys’ fees and costs) in respect of any Claim that relates to (a) Customer Data or any other content or materials provided by Customer or its Affiliates or Authorized Users or (b) the use by Customer or its Affiliates or Authorized Users of the Subscription Services or SPECTRABOTICS IP in breach of this SaaS Agreement or in violation of applicable law or third party rights.
- As a condition to the obligations of the indemnifying party under either of Sections 8.1 or 8.2 above, the indemnified Person shall: (a) promptly notify the indemnifying Party of any Claim for which indemnity will be sought; provided that no delay in providing such notice shall relieve the indemnifying Party of any liability or obligations hereunder except to the extent the indemnifying Party has been prejudiced by such delay; (b) permit the indemnifying Party to assume control of the defense and settlement of such Claim with counsel of its choosing; and (c) provide cooperation reasonably requested by the indemnifying Party in investigating and defending such Claim, at the indemnifying Party’s expense (provided that the indemnified Person shall not be entitled to compensation for time spent providing such cooperation).

- Upon expiration of a Subscription Period, Customer’s subscription to the applicable Subscription Services and the term of this SaaS Agreement shall automatically renew for consecutive annual renewal periods, at SPECTRABOTICS’ then-current subscription price (subject to Section 6.3), unless either Party notifies the other Party no later than thirty (30) days prior to the scheduled renewal date that it is electing not to renew this SaaS Agreement, in which case the subscription and the term of this SaaS Agreement shall end upon the expiration of the then-current Subscription Period.
- Either Party may terminate this SaaS Agreement by notice if the other Party breaches any material term of this SaaS Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of the breach from the non-defaulting Party.

- Upon ten (10) days’ notice to Customer, SPECTRABOTICS may suspend the Subscription Services in whole or in part if Customer fails to make when due any payment required under this SaaS Agreement or under any other agreement entered into by the Parties.

SPECTRABOTICS may also suspend the Subscription Services in whole or in part if Customer otherwise breaches any term of this SaaS Agreement or any other agreement entered into by the Parties and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of the breach from SPECTRABOTICS, until such time as the breach is cured. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SPECTRABOTICS may immediately suspend the Subscription Services, with or without prior notice to Customer, in order to avoid or mitigate irreparable harm to SPECTRABOTICS. Any suspension hereunder shall be without limitation of any other right or remedy available to SPECTRABOTICS.

- If this SaaS Agreement is validly terminated by Customer pursuant to any of Sections 5.2, 8.1or 10.3 and Customer is in full compliance with all material terms and conditions of this SaaS Agreement, SPECTRABOTICS shall within ten (10) days following the effective date of such termination refund to Customer all subscription fees previously paid by Customer for the Subscription Services with respect to the then-remaining portion of any prepaid Subscription Period.
- If requested by a Party, the other Party shall promptly destroy or return to the requesting Party, as directed, all of the requesting Party’s Confidential Information, and other materials of the requesting Party in such other Party’s possession or under its control. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Party shall be entitled to retain any records to the extent it has been advised in writing by counsel that such retention is required to comply with applicable law or regulation.

The receiving Party shall prevent the unauthorized use, disclosure, dissemination or publication of such Confidential Information using at least the same degree of care that the receiving Party uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care.
- The obligations of the Parties under Section 11.1 shall not apply to the extent of any disclosure required pursuant to a duly authorized subpoena, court order, or government authority, provided that the receiving Party has provided prompt notice and assistance to the disclosing Party prior to such disclosure, so that such Party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy to protect against disclosure.
- Any breach of the confidentiality obligations set forth in this Section 11 would constitute a material breach of this SaaS Agreement, which the breaching Party acknowledges would cause irreparable harm to the non-breaching Party, leaving it without an adequate remedy at law. As such, any such breach shall entitle the non-breaching Party to injunctive relief in addition to all other remedies, without necessity of posting of a bond or other security in connection therewith. The preceding sentence is not intended, nor shall it be construed, to limit a Party’s right to dispute the factual basis underlying any contention that it has committed any breach.
- This Section 11 will remain in effect during the term of this SaaS Agreement and for a period of five (5) years following termination or expiration of this SaaS Agreement for any reason, except with respect to any Confidential Information of SPECTRABOTICS contained in or constituting SPECTRABOTICS Software, for which this Section 11will remain in effect indefinitely.
- In the event that the provisions of this Section 11 are inconsistent with the provisions of any applicable non-disclosure (or comparable) agreement separately executed by the Parties, then the terms of this Section 11 shall govern with respect to Confidential Information disclosed in connection with the subject matter of this SaaS Agreement.

As between the Parties, all Feedback shall be exclusively owned by SPECTRABOTICS and SPECTRABOTICS shall be freely entitled to reproduce, prepare derivative works of, disclose to third Persons, display and perform (publicly or otherwise), sell, lease, license, distribute, and otherwise use and exploit any and all such Feedback, at its sole discretion, without obligation or liability of any kind to Customer or to any other Person.

- Audit. Customer acknowledges that the Subscription Services may include features designed to monitor Customer’s compliance with applicable usage limitations set forth in the Order Form.

If any such monitoring or audit reveals that the Subscription Services have been used in excess of the applicable usage limitations set forth in the Order Form or in any other unauthorized manner, Customer will, within thirty (30) days of receipt of SPECTRABOTICS’ invoice, reimburse SPECTRABOTICS for the reasonable, documented costs of such audit and pay any additional charges that would apply, under SPECTRABOTICS’ then-current prices, for such excess or other unauthorized use, without limitation of any other remedies SPECTRABOTICS may have under law or this SaaS Agreement.

- Unless otherwise specified in this SaaS Agreement, any notice required or permitted to be sent under this SaaS Agreement shall be sent, in writing, by certified mail (return receipt requested), overnight courier or personal delivery, to SPECTRABOTICS or to Customer at the addresses for notices set forth in the Order Form or as changed from time to time by notice. Such notices shall be effective when received.
