These Terms and Conditions govern Customer’s use of the Services. By accepting this Agreement, by (1) clicking a box indicating acceptance, (2) executing an order form that references this agreement, or (3) using the Free Services, Customer agrees to the terms of this Agreement.
If the individual accepting this Agreement is accepting on behalf of a company or other legal entity, such individual represents that they have the authority to bind such entity and its Affiliates to these terms and conditions, in which case the term “Customer” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates. If the individual accepting this agreement does not have such authority, or does not agree with these terms and conditions, such individual must not accept this agreement and may not use the services.
ClosePlan’s direct competitors are prohibited from accessing or otherwise using the Services, except with ClosePlan’s express written permission.
1.1. “Agreement” means these Terms and Conditions.
1.2. “Free Services” means Services that ClosePlan makes available to Customer free of charge. Free Services exclude Services offered as Purchased Services.
1.3. “Free Users” means individuals for whom the Customer has provisioned Free Services.
1.4. “Purchased Services” means Services that Customer purchases under an Order Form, as distinguished from Free Services.
1.5. “Services” means the software-as-a-service offerings offered to the Customer as Free Services or Purchased Services.
1.6. “User” means an individual that (i) the Customer authorizes to use the Services and (ii) the Customer has purchased a subscription for the individual or, for Free Services, the Free Users.

3. Fees and Payment.
3.1. Fees. Customer agrees to pay all fees in accordance with the Order Form and this Agreement. The fees do not include any taxes or duties of any kind, which may be imposed by any governmental entity on Customer’s subscription to the Service, and Customer will be solely responsible for all such taxes. All fees paid are non-refundable. All amounts are quoted in and must be paid in US dollars.

3.2. Licenses Acquired Through Resellers. In the event that you purchased the licenses described herein through an authorized reseller (a “Reseller”) of ClosePlan, Customer shall make all payments to Reseller. Reseller may offer different prices or different or additional terms and conditions for use of the Services than made available by ClosePlan. Any such different or additional terms and conditions (including any additional warranties) are between Customer and Reseller and ClosePlan assumes no responsibility for such terms.
4. Free Services.
4.1. If Customer registers on ClosePlan’s or an Affiliate’s website for Free Services, use of the Free Services is provided pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Customer agrees that ClosePlan, in its sole discretion and for any or no reason, may terminate Customer’s access to the Free Services or any part thereof.

Customer is solely responsible for exporting Customer Data from the Free Services prior to termination of Customer’s access to the Free Services for any reason, provided that if ClosePlan terminates Customer’s account, except as required by law ClosePlan will provide Customer a reasonable opportunity to retrieve its Customer Data.
4.2. Free Service Limits. If Customer registers on ClosePlan’s or an Affiliate’s website for Free Services, the Free Services include (i) up to twenty-five (25) full Relationship Map Licenses per Customer and (ii) up to forty (40) Relationship Map Read Only Licenses per Customer.

6. Term; Termination; Survival.
6.1. Term. This Agreement commences on the date Customer first accepts it and continues until all subscriptions hereunder have expired or have been terminated.
6.2. Term for Purchased Services. The term for Purchased Services, unless stated otherwise in the applicable Order Form, will commence on the date specified in the applicable Order Form and will remain in force for the term specified in the applicable Order Form (“Initial Term”). Thereafter, the term for the Purchased Services will automatically renew for successive one-year terms (each, a “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”) unless Customer provides notice of non-renewal at least 60 days before the expiration of the then applicable term. The number of Users subscribed during any Renewal Term will be the number of Users subscribed at the end of the immediately proceeding term unless otherwise described in an Order Form. If ClosePlan wishes to increase the price of the Service for any Renewal Term, ClosePlan will give Customer notice of such proposed price increase not less than 90 days before the expiration of the then applicable term.
6.3. Termination. Either party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement in the event of a material breach of this Agreement by the other party, which material breach has not been cured within 30 days of receipt of written notice thereof, except in the case of Customer’s failure to pay any fees when due hereunder, which must be cured within 7 days after receipt of written notice from ClosePlan. Upon any termination for cause by Customer, ClosePlan shall refund to Customer any prepaid, unused fees applicable to the remaining portion of the subscription term following the effective date of termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party becomes the subject of an involuntary petition in bankruptcy or other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, or liquidation, if such petition is not dismissed within 60 days of filing. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, the rights granted to Customer hereunder will immediately terminate and Customer shall immediately discontinue any use of the Service. Termination shall not relieve Customer of the obligation to pay any fees accrued or payable prior to the effective date of termination.
6.4. Survival. Sections 3, 5, 6.4, 8, 9, and 11–14 will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.

ClosePlan will notify Customer five (5) business days prior to pushing the upgrade to Customer’s Salesforce Instance. Unless otherwise indicated in the foregoing notice, ClosePlan will push the upgrade to the Customer’s Salesforce Instance during non-Business Hours.
8. Confidentiality. “Confidential Information” means information disclosed by either party to the other, whether orally, electronically or in writing, which is designated as confidential or would reasonably be considered to be confidential under the circumstances by a reasonable person. ClosePlan’s Confidential Information includes, but not be limited to, Service, documentation, technology and technical information, product designs and business processes. Each party agrees to use Confidential Information solely to perform this Agreement and not to disclose, or permit to be disclosed, either directly or indirectly, Confidential Information to any third party without the other’s prior written consent. Each party shall safeguard the Confidential Information of the other party using at least the same measures it uses to protect its own confidential information, but in no event less than reasonable care. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither party bears responsibility for safeguarding information that is (i) publicly available without breach of an obligation owed to the disclosing party hereunder, (ii) obtained from third parties not under confidentiality restrictions, (iii) independently developed or known to the recipient without breach of an obligation owed to the disclosing party, or (iv) required to be disclosed by order of court or other governmental entity. If either party breaches or threatens to breach the provisions of this Section 8, each party agrees that the non-breaching party will have no adequate remedy at law and is therefore entitled to immediate injunctive and other equitable relief.

Further, ClosePlan shall indemnify against all costs (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) finally awarded against Customer by a court of competent jurisdiction or an arbitrator or agreed to in a written settlement agreement signed by us. ClosePlan may, at its option and expense: (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Service; (b) replace or modify the Service so that it is no longer infringing but continues to provide comparable functionality; or (c) terminate this Agreement and Customer’s access to the Service and refund any amounts previously paid for the Service attributable to the remainder of the then-current subscription term. ClosePlan will have no liability to Customer for any infringement action that arises out of a breach of the terms and conditions of this Agreement by Customer or of the use of the Service (i) after it has been modified by Customer or a third party without ClosePlan’s prior written consent, or (ii) in combination with any other service, equipment, software or process not provided by us where the combination is the basis for the infringing activity.
