Within two business days from the date of such invoice, Customer shall pay the fees set forth in the invoice via ACH or credit card. Where Customer chooses to pay via ACH, Customer hereby authorizes Censys (or Censys’ bank) to debit Customer’s account (on a recurring basis) for fees due and payable by Customer during the Initial Term (as defined below) and each Renewal Term (as defined below) and remit funds in accordance with Customer’s payment instructions through the ACH.

Where Customer chooses to pay via credit card, Customer hereby authorizes Censys to charge the credit card provided (on a recurring basis) for fees due and payable by Customer during the Initial Term and each Renewal Term. Customer acknowledges that its credit card information will be saved by Censys for future transactions on Customer’s account. All payments shall be made in US dollars and shall be nonrefundable. Past due amounts which are not subject to a good faith dispute shall bear a late payment charge, until paid, at the rate of two percent (2%) per month or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is less. Customer agrees to reimburse Censys for all costs (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Censys in collecting payments. In addition to its other rights and remedies, Censys may, at its option, suspend Customer’s access to the Service or terminate these Terms of Service and the Order in the event that Customer is not current in the payment of fees owed to Censys.
4.4 Taxes. All payments required by these Terms of Service and the Order shall include the payment of any federal, state, local and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings and similar assessments (including without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes and value added taxes).

The receiving party shall only disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to the receiving party’s employees, contractors and agents (“Representatives”) who have a need to know such information for the purposes of these Terms of Service, are bound by substantially similar confidentiality obligations and shall use reasonable care to safeguard the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. The receiving party shall be responsible for any breach of confidentiality by its Representatives. Promptly upon the disclosing party’s request at any time, the receiving party shall return all of the disclosing party’s tangible Confidential Information, permanently erase all of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information in electronic form and destroy all information, records, copies, summaries, analyses and materials developed therefrom. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may provide a copy of these Terms of Service or otherwise disclose its terms on a confidential basis in connection with any financing transaction or due diligence inquiry.

If the Service becomes or, in Censys’ opinion, is likely to become, the subject of any injunction preventing its use as contemplated herein, Censys may, at its option: (1) obtain for Customer the right to continue using the Service; or (2) replace or modify the Service so that it becomes non-infringing, without substantially compromising its principal functions.

Upon any expiration or termination of these Terms of Service and the Order, all rights, obligations and licenses of the parties under these Terms of Service and the Order shall cease, except that accrued payment obligations, all confidentiality obligations, and any other provisions that are intended to survive the expiration or termination of these Terms of Service will survive.
11. GENERAL PROVISIONS
11.1 Entire Agreement. These Terms of Service, together with the Order, constitute the entire agreement regarding the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all prior negotiations, understandings or agreements (oral or written) between the parties regarding the subject matter hereof and thereof. Any inconsistent or additional terms on any related purchase order, confirmation or similar form, even if signed by the parties after the date hereof, shall have no force or effect under these Terms of Service. No waiver, consent or modification of these Terms of Service shall bind either party unless in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement is sought. The failure of either party to enforce its rights under these Terms of Service at any time for any period will not be construed as a waiver of such rights. If any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Service will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Any use of the terms “include,” “included” or “including” shall also be deemed to mean “but not limited to” or “without limitation.”
11.2 Governing Law and Dispute Resolution. These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan and the United States, without regard to conflicts of law provisions thereof. Neither the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods nor any implementation of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act in any jurisdiction shall apply to these Terms of Service. Any legal action or proceeding relating to these Terms of Service shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and each party consents to the jurisdiction thereof. In any action or proceeding to enforce or interpret these Terms of Service, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party its costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with such action or proceeding and enforcing any judgment or order obtained. In the event of a conflict between the laws of the United States and the laws of another country, the laws of the United States shall apply.
11.3 Compliance with Laws. Each party shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations in connection with the performance of its obligations and the exercise of its rights under these Terms of Service.
11.4 Remedies. Except as specifically provided otherwise, each right and remedy in these Terms of Service is in addition to any other right or remedy that may be available at law or in equity. Each party agrees that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach of Sections 5 (Confidentiality) or 6 (Proprietary Rights) or the scope of any license granted hereunder, the non-breaching party will suffer irreparable damage for which it will have no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, the non-breaching party shall be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable remedies to prevent or restrain such breach or threatened breach, without the necessity of posting any bond.
11.5 Force Majeure. In the event that either party is prevented from performing, or is unable to perform, any of its obligations under these Terms of Service (except payment obligations) due to any cause beyond its reasonable control, the affected party shall give written notice thereof to the other party and its performance shall be extended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such occurrence.
11.6 Notices. Any notice or communication hereunder shall be in writing and either personally delivered or delivered by a recognized express delivery courier or certified or registered mail, prepaid and return receipt requested, addressed to the other party at its address specified in the Order, or at such other address designated in a subsequent notice. All notices shall be in English, effective upon receipt.
11.7 Assignment. Except as expressly provided herein, these Terms of Service and the rights and obligations hereunder may not be assigned, in whole or in part, by either party without the other party’s written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign these Terms of Service, without the other party’s consent, to any successor to all or substantially all of its business that concerns these Terms of Service (whether by sale of assets or equity, merger, consolidation or otherwise). Any assignment in violation of this Section 11.7 shall be deemed null and void ab initio. Censys may use contractors and other third-party service providers in performing the Service, provided that Censys shall be liable for the acts and omissions of its subcontractors to the same extent as for its own acts and omissions. These Terms of Service shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors, representatives and permitted assigns of the parties hereto.
11.8 Independent Contractors. The parties shall be independent contractors under these Terms of Service, and nothing herein will constitute either party as the employer, employee, agent or representative of the other party, or as the joint venturer or partner of the other party, for any purpose.
