You will promptly notify us of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security of the Service. If you become aware of any violation of your obligations by a Named User, you will immediately terminate such Named User’s access to the Service and Customer Content. We and our affiliates are not responsible for unauthorized access to your Named User accounts, except to the extent caused by our breach of this Agreement. Except for our responsibilities as set forth in the SaaS Service Guide, you are responsible for the development, content, operation, maintenance, and use of Customer Content and compliance with the SaaS Service Guide and all Service policies that we make available to you from time to time. If one of our Third-Party Solution infrastructure providers materially diminishes any Third-Party Solution included with the Service or terminates its agreement with us, we will replace that Third-Party Solution with a materially equivalent solution.
As required for our performance pursuant to this Agreement or any order, you are also required to (i) provide us with reliable, accurate and complete information; and (ii) make decisions and obtain required management approvals in a timely manner; and (iii) obtain all consents, approvals and licenses necessary for use of any software, services, data or other items provided by you or on your behalf; and (iv) cause your third-party contractors and licensors to cooperate with us.

For each such renewal, we grant you a right to access the Service for the duration of the Service Term effected by the renewal, governed by this Agreement.
5. Suspension of Access and Removal of Customer Content
We reserve the right to suspend your access to the Service if you or any of your Named Users breach a material provision of this Agreement, and to remove any improper Customer Content that is uploaded or transferred to the Service in violation of this Agreement.
6. Intellectual Property Ownership
We, our affiliates and our licensors will own all right, title and interest in and to the Service. You will be and remain the owner of all rights, title and interest in and to Customer Content. Each party will own and retain all rights in its trademarks, logos and other brand elements (collectively, “Trademarks”). To the extent a party grants any rights or licenses to its Trademarks to the other party in connection with this Agreement, the other party’s use of such Trademarks will be subject to the reasonable trademark guidelines provided in writing by the party that owns the Trademarks.
7. Term and Termination
This Agreement, orders and your use of the Service may only be terminated according to this section. You may terminate this Agreement, any order and your use of the Service at any time by providing written notice to us. We may terminate this Agreement, any order and your use of the Service upon written notice to you (a) if you breach a material provision of this Agreement and fail to cure the breach within thirty (30) days following such notice; or (b) as provided in the “Indemnification” or “Limited Warranties and Remedies” sections of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement or an order, all fees that you are obligated to pay as of the date of termination will be immediately due and payable. Upon termination of this Agreement or all orders, your right to access the Service will terminate.
Upon termination of this Agreement and all orders governed by this Agreement, we will make all Customer Content available for your download in the format in which it was stored as part of the Service for thirty (30) days after termination, after which time it will be deleted.
We will defend you, at our expense, against any third-party claim, demand, suit, or proceeding (“Claim”) brought against you by a nonaffiliated third-party alleging that the Service infringes or misappropriates an intellectual property right of the third-party and will indemnify you for and hold you harmless from any damages finally awarded to the third-party claimant or agreed to in settlement of the Claim. If your use of the Service is enjoined in connection with the Claim or we believe it reasonably could be enjoined, we may choose to either modify the Service to be non-infringing (while substantially preserving its utility and functionality) or obtain a license to allow for continued use of the Service or if these alternatives are not commercially reasonable, we may terminate your right to access and use the Service and refund any unused, prepaid fees paid for the Service.
We will have no indemnification obligation, and you will indemnify us, for any Claim arising from or based upon (a) the misuse or unauthorized use of the Service or the use of the Service outside the scope of use identified in the Documentation, if the Claim would not have arisen without such use; or (b) any modification of the Service not authorized by us in writing, if the Claim would not have arisen without such modification; or (c) the combination of the Service with any third-party products, services or business processes not provided by us as part of the Service, if the Claim would not have arisen without such combination, or (d) the use of the Service in an unlawful or unauthorized manner; or (e) the use of Customer Content or a Third-Party Solution; or (f) a breach of the “Certain Obligations and Restrictions” or “Data Protection” sections this Agreement by you or your Representatives.
The indemnifying party’s obligations under this section only arise if the indemnified party (1) promptly gives the indemnifying party written notice of the Claim; and (2) gives the indemnifying party sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim (provided that the indemnifying party may not settle any claim that imposes liability on, or contains any admission of fault by, the indemnified party, without its consent); and (3) provides to the indemnifying party all available information and reasonable assistance necessary to defend or settle the claim; and (4) has not compromised or settled the claim without the indemnifying party’s written approval.
The provisions of this section state the sole, exclusive and entire liability of us to you, and are your sole remedy, with respect to the infringement of third-party intellectual property rights.
9. Limited Warranties and Remedies
We warrant that the Service will perform in substantial conformance with the technical specifications set forth in the Documentation during a Service Term. For any breach of this warranty, your exclusive remedy, and our entire liability, will be (1) the correction of the Service errors that caused the breach of the warranty; or (2) if such correction cannot be reasonably effected by us, the termination of your subscription to the Service and the refund of any unused, prepaid fees paid for the Service.
Each party warrants that the individual entering into this Agreement and any order governed by this Agreement on behalf of such party has the authority to enter into this Agreement or any such order on behalf of such party, and that it will comply with all applicable statutes, laws, rules and regulations in the exercise of its rights and the performance of its obligations under this Agreement.
You acknowledge that the direct or indirect transfer of a software product contrary to United States law or any other applicable law is prohibited. You warrant that (a) you are not a Restricted Party; and (b) you are not controlled by or acting on behalf of any Restricted Party; and (c) neither you nor any of your employees, agents or contractors will transfer or allow any software product to be transferred to any Restricted Party. “Restricted Party” means any person or entity that is (1) listed on any of the lists of persons or entities maintained by the United States government that prohibit such persons or entities from receiving exports or services; or (2) a national or resident of, or an entity or governmental authority in, any country or territory that is or becomes subject to United States export controls for anti-terrorism reasons or with which United States persons are generally prohibited from engaging in financial transactions.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NO WARRANTIES OR COMMITMENTS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SYSTEMS INTEGRATION, TITLE, SATISFACTORY QUALITY AND NONINFRINGEMENT. WE DO NOT WARRANT AND ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS AND REMEDIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES ARE AS PROVIDED BY THE THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER AND NOT BY US.
10. Limitation of Liability
EXCEPT FOR OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE “INDEMNIFICATION” SECTION OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE CUMULATIVE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF US AND ALL OF OUR AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS TO YOU AND ALL OF YOUR AFFILIATES RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE FEES (IF ANY) PAID BY YOU TO US UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE FIRST CLAIM MADE BY YOU. IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OF YOUR AFFILIATES FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE OR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF AN AGREED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OR IS HELD UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY OTHER REASON. SUBJECT TO THE FOREGOING, OUR MAXIMUM LIABILITY FOR EACH CLAIM MADE BY YOU, TO THE EXTENT THE CLAIM ARISES FROM OR IS BASED UPON THE USE OF A THIRD-PARTY SOLUTION, WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE APPLICABLE THIRD-PARTY SOLUTION PROVIDER’S LIABILITY TO US RELATED TO THE CLAIM.
11. Orders, Invoicing and Payment
You will be invoiced upon execution of and according to the terms of an order. All fees due to us will be payable, in full and in the currency listed on an order, thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice, and will be deemed overdue if they remain unpaid thereafter. All fees are net of any taxes, which will be your responsibility, except for taxes on our income. Any dispute to an invoice must be raised within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice or the invoice will be deemed correct. You agree to negotiate in good faith a prompt resolution of any disputed amounts. If any undisputed invoice governed by this Agreement remains unpaid for 30 or more days after it is due, we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, accelerate all unpaid fee obligations under all orders so that all amounts payable by you become immediately due and payable. In addition, any amounts which remain unpaid after the due date will be subject to a late charge equal to one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate allowable by law, whichever is lower, from the due date until such amount is paid. Except as otherwise noted, all orders are firm and not subject to cancellation, return, refund or offset by you.
You will keep accurate and complete records relating to your activities under this Agreement, including your use of the Service and other information necessary to demonstrate your compliance with this Agreement (“Records”). Within ten (10) days following our written request, you will certify to us in a writing signed by an officer of your company that your use of the Service complies with the terms of this Agreement and will provide us any Records we specify in such request. Within ten (10) days following our written request, we may also audit your Records at your applicable facility during normal business hours and subject to your reasonable facility security requirements. We may also audit your use of the Service (including by remote and/or electronic means) at any time and for any reason.
13. Data Protection
You will not transfer to us or provide us any access to any Protected Data in connection with this Agreement, including Personal Data, Protected Health Information and Personally Identifiable Information (as such terms are defined in Applicable Data Protection Law), except for Protected Data related to your contact persons or uploaded or transferred to the Service.
We have implemented appropriate technical, organizational, and security measures designed to safeguard and protect Protected Data provided by you to us and we may access, use and transfer such Protected Data to our affiliates and third parties (including those located outside of the European Economic Area) only for the purposes of fulfilling our obligations and exercising our rights, providing information to you and complying with our legal and auditing requirements. As between you and us, for purposes of this Agreement and Applicable Data Protection Law, you are the “data controller” and we are acting on your behalf as a “data processor” with respect to Protected Data that you or your Representatives upload or transfer to the Service. If you upload or transfer Protected Data to the Service, you will enable encryption of report caches and intelligent cubes which are saved to disk.
Under this Agreement, Confidential Information may be accessed or disclosed between the parties. “Confidential Information” means any information identified as confidential at the time of disclosure, or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential in view of the information’s nature or circumstances around its disclosure, and will in all cases include pricing terms, the terms of this Agreement or any order, software, technology, business plans, technical specifications, product development plans, marketing plans, education materials, and customer lists. Confidential Information will not include information that (a) is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the receiving party; or (b) was in the receiving party’s lawful possession prior to the disclosure; or (c) is lawfully disclosed to the receiving party by a third-party without restriction on the disclosure; or (d) is independently developed by the receiving party. Security is important to us and our customers, and we strongly recommend that you share with us the results of any penetration tests that you conduct on the Service (which is considered solely our Confidential Information) so that we may utilize that information to improve our products and services.
Each party agrees to hold the other party’s Confidential Information in confidence during the term of this Agreement and for a period of five (5) years after the termination of this Agreement (other than with respect to trade secrets, which shall be held in confidence following such period in accordance with this section), and to disclose such Confidential Information only to those employees or agents who have a need to know such Confidential Information and are required to protect it against unauthorized disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to a federal or state governmental entity to the extent such disclosure is required by law, so long as the receiving party notifies the disclosing party in advance of the required disclosure as soon as reasonably practicable to allow the disclosing party to contest the disclosure.
Upon termination of this Agreement and except for electronic copies made in the course of normal network backups or as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, the receiving party will promptly destroy or return, at the sole discretion of the disclosing party, all Confidential Information of the disclosing party in the receiving party’s possession or control.
Notices will be in writing and will be deemed to have been given when (a) personally delivered; or (b) sent by electronic mail; or (c) sent by a commercial overnight courier. You will provide notices to: MicroStrategy Incorporated, Attention: General Counsel, 1850 Towers Crescent Plaza, Tysons Corner, Virginia, 22182, United States; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, we may give notices regarding the Service to you by means of a general notice posted on the log-in page of the Service. Such notices will be deemed to have been given the first time you (or any of your Named Users) log in to the Service after the notice has been posted. Notices under a Service policy will be given in accordance with the terms of the policy.
This Agreement or any order may not be assigned or otherwise transferred in whole or in part by you, including by operation of law, without our prior written approval. Any unauthorized assignment or transfer of this Agreement, an order or a Service subscription by you to a third-party will constitute a material breach of this Agreement.
17. Third-Party Solution Connectors
When you access any Third-Party Solution (including third-party data sources) with connectors included as part of the Service, you agree and acknowledge that (a) you may download content from the servers of the Third-Party Solution provider; and (b) your access to the Third-Party Solution with such connectors will be for the purpose of utilizing the Third-Party Solution in conjunction with the Service; and (c) we are not responsible for interruptions of service caused by the Third-Party Solution provider; and (d) if we have a business relationship with the Third-Party Solution provider, that relationship is subject to termination and cancellation; (e) you may not remove or obscure any patent, copyright, trademark, proprietary rights notices, and/or legends contained in or affixed to any output of the Service; and (f) you are solely responsible for licensing the use of third-party data sources accessed by the Service.
Except for hiring an employee (or independent contractor or agent) of the other party to fill a job opening that was publicly announced and to which the applicable employee (or independent contractor or agent) responded, during the term of this Agreement and for one (1) year following termination or expiration of this Agreement, neither party will hire or directly or indirectly solicit any employee (or independent contractor or agent) of the other party who has provided services or performed obligations under this Agreement in the previous twelve (12) months.
19. General Provisions
We may elect to change or supplement the terms of this Agreement from time to time in our sole discretion by publishing updated terms on our website at microstrategy.com. Any such changes will apply to your subscription to and use of the Service on the date of the next renewal of your subscription to the Service or submission of a new order under this Agreement, whichever comes first. Your continued use of the Service thereafter shall be deemed your acceptance of such changes to the terms of this Agreement. The terms of this Agreement and any applicable order will supersede the terms in any purchase order or other ordering document that you generate and provide to us. Any terms of trade stated or referenced in any such purchase order (except for names, quantities and addresses) will not be binding on us. In the event of a conflict between or among the terms of this Agreement or an order, the following order of precedence will apply: first, the applicable order (but only with respect to the order); second, this Agreement; and third, any other document incorporated into the Agreement. Each party has the right to issue a mutually-agreed press release that includes a quotation from one of the other party’s senior executives. Each party grants the other the right to use its name and logo in public communications, on websites, in presentations, in marketing collateral and at marketing events. Neither party will be responsible for delay of performance due to causes beyond its control. We may collect usage and diagnostic data related to your use of the Service to help us improve our products and services, better our customer service and enhance customer experience (“Diagnostic Information”); Diagnostic Information will not include Protected Data. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision will be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the invalid or unenforceable provision, with all other provisions remaining in full force and effect. No joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Service. The failure of either you or us to enforce any right or provision in this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to in writing by the party otherwise entitled to exercise or enforce it. Any provision of this Agreement that would reasonably be expected to survive will survive the termination of this Agreement. There are no intended third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement. You represent that your decision to purchase access to the Service is not based on (a) any oral or written comments made by us with respect to functionality or features not currently offered in our latest generally available version of the Service; or (b) any expectation that any additional features or functionality presented as part of a demonstration, beta evaluation or roadmap presentation of the Service may be included in a future update or release of the Service; or (c) demonstrations of any software that is not currently generally available. You further acknowledge that the development, release and timing of any additional features or functionality for the Service remain at our sole discretion. If you deploy the Service as part of an extranet application, you agree to display “Powered by MicroStrategy” or certain other similar trademarks designated by us. Any products acquired with United States Federal Government funds or intended for use within or for any United States federal agency are provided in accordance with FAR 12.212, Computer Software (October 1995), 52.227-19, Commercial Computer Software Restricted Rights (June 1987), and DFARS part 227.7202, Commercial Computer Software and Commercial Computer Software Documentation (October 1998). We are a federal contractor. As a result, but only if applicable, the Equal Opportunity Clauses set forth in 41 C.F.R. parts 60-1.4(a), and the employee notice found at 29 C.F.R. Part 471, Appendix A to Subpart A are incorporated by reference herein. In addition, but also only if applicable, you will abide by the requirements of 41 CFR §§ 60-300.5(a) and 60-741.5(a). These regulations prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals on the basis of protected veteran status or disability, and require affirmative action by covered prime contractors and subcontractors to employ and advance in employment qualified protected veterans and individuals with disabilities. This language is provided as part of our compliance with the applicable Executive orders, statutes and regulations regulated by the Department of Labor. This Agreement and any orders governed by this Agreement comprise the entire agreement between you and us and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions, agreements or statements, whether written or oral. The parties acknowledge and agree that orders and any other contracts between them signed by electronic signatures shall be validly executed contracts and waive any rights to contest the validity or enforceability of such contract due to electronic signatures by one or both parties.
