3.6 Fee Disputes. If You purchased the Services through StreamYard’s system-generated sales order executed by the Parties, You may dispute the fees and Taxes in good faith. You must notify StreamYard within the payment period, and the Parties will seek to resolve the dispute over a 15-day discussion period.

6.2. Your Responsibility for Admins and Content. You and Your Admins must comply with the Community Guidelines which are incorporated into this Agreement. StreamYard has the right to remove any content if, in StreamYard’s reasonable opinion, that content does not comply with the Community Guidelines or exposes You, StreamYard, or StreamYard’s users to potential liability or risk.

StreamYard may provide features or functionality to facilitate some or all of the activities listed in this clause, but it does not provide advice on how to comply with Law in relation to such activities.
6.4. Modifications. StreamYard may modify any feature or functionality of the Services and reserves the right to discontinue either at any time. StreamYard shall provide You with commercially reasonable advance notice of deprecation of a material feature that affects You via email or the Platform. To the extent that (1) you are a StreamYard Business customer and (2) such modification results in a material reduction of overall functionality without a comparable replacement, You may elect to terminate this Agreement by providing notice to StreamYard within 30 days of such material reduction, and receive a prorated portion of all prepaid Subscription Fees associated with the impacted Service as Your sole and exclusive remedy.

We shall not be liable to You or any third party for any such suspension.

6.8. System Requirements. Use of the Services requires compatible hardware, certain software, and Internet access. Non-compatible hardware or software, and quality of Internet access may affect Your usage of the Services. You acknowledge and agree that such system requirements may change from time to time to ensure better performance of the Services (e.g., updating Chrome browser version) and that StreamYard is not responsible if You do not meet system requirements, or if You do not ensure Your personnel are not trained to use Your systems.
7.1. Analytics. StreamYard may aggregate, collect, and analyze information relating to the provision, use and performance of the Services, and may use such information to provide You the Services, improve Our services and other offerings, and for any other legitimate business purpose (“Analytics”).

7.2. Your Ownership. Any Analytics specific to You or Your Streams are owned by You and are deemed Your Confidential Information (as defined in 8.1). StreamYard will never use or disclose Your Analytics in a manner intended to allow any third party to identify or benchmark Your business practices and services.
8. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
8.1. Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by one Party to the other Party in tangible form and designated as confidential; or is information, regardless of form, which a reasonable person would understand to be confidential given the nature of the information and circumstances of disclosure. In the case of StreamYard, it includes but is not limited to, StreamYard’s product roadmap, pricing, security practices, and Beta Features. Confidential Information excludes information that (a) was already known to the receiving Party at the time of disclosure by the disclosing Party; (b) was or is obtained by the receiving Party from a third party not known by the receiving Party to be under an obligation of confidentiality regarding such information; (c) is or becomes generally available to the public other than by violation of this Agreement or another valid agreement between the Parties; or (d) was or is independently developed by the receiving Party without the use of the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
8.2. Protection of Confidential Information.

Except as otherwise permitted under this Agreement, each Party may use the other Party’s Confidential Information solely to exercise its respective rights and perform its respective obligations under this Agreement and may disclose such Confidential Information (a) solely to the employees, non-employee service providers, or contractors who need to know such Confidential Information and who are bound by terms of confidentiality intended to prevent the misuse of such Confidential Information; (b) as necessary to comply with an order or subpoena of an administrative agency or court of competent jurisdiction provided that the receiving Party gives the disclosing Party sufficient notice to enable it to seek an order to limit or prevent such disclosure; or (c) as reasonably necessary to comply with Law.
9. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
9.1. Reserved Rights. Neither Party grants the other any IP Rights or licenses not expressly set out in this Agreement.

10.2. Disclaimers. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, AND WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE, OR FREE FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, AND NO INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE SERVICES SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN WRITING TO YOU. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT ANY ERRORS IN THE SERVICES PROVIDED HEREUNDER CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED.
11.1. In this Section 11, the following definitions apply:
“Claim” means any judicial or administrative proceeding, or third party arbitration action, suit, claim, or investigation.
“Expenses” means any reasonable out-of-pocket expense incurred in defending a Claim or in any related investigation or negotiation, including court filing fees, court costs, arbitration fees, witness fees, and attorneys’ and other professionals’ fees and disbursements.
“Indemnitee” means a Party and its Affiliates (and in the case of Customer, Affiliates that are expressly permitted to use the licenses to the Products hereunder), and their respective directors, employees, agents, consultants, advisors, and other representatives, receiving an indemnity under this Agreement.
“Indemnitor” means the Party providing an indemnity under this Agreement to the other Party.
“Losses” means any amount awarded in, or paid in settlement of, any Claim.
11.2. StreamYard Indemnification. StreamYard will indemnify Customer Indemnitees against all Losses arising out of a Claim brought by a third party against Customer Indemnitees, alleging that Your use of the Service infringes or misappropriates a third-party’s IP Rights (an “IP Claim”). If Your use of a Service has become or is likely to become, the subject of any such IP Claim, We may, at Our option and expense, (i) procure for You the right to continue using the Services; (ii) replace or modify a Service to make it non-infringing; or (iii) if options (i) or (ii) are not commercially reasonable or practicable as determined by StreamYard, terminate Your Service and refund You a prorated portion of any Subscription Fees previously paid to StreamYard for the unused portion of Your Subscription Period. We will have no liability or obligation regarding any IP Claim if it is caused in whole or in part by (x) compliance with designs, data, instructions, or specifications provided by You; (y) modification of the Services, unless performed or authorized by StreamYard; or (z) the combination, operation or use of the Services with other hardware or software where a Service would not by itself be infringing. The provisions of this Section state the sole, exclusive, and entire liability of StreamYard to You and constitute Your sole remedy regarding an IP Claim. For the avoidance of doubt, the indemnification under this section does not apply for free plan users.
11.3. Customer Indemnification. You will indemnify StreamYard Indemnitees against all Losses arising out of a Claim brought by a third party against StreamYard Indemnitees arising from or related to Your violation of the Community Guidelines in connection with Your use of the Services.
11.4. Procedure. The indemnity obligations in this Section 11 do not apply unless: (a) Indemnitee promptly notifies the Indemnitor in writing of the threat or notice of a Claim; (b) Indemnitor has the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defense attorneys, and defend or settle any such Claim; provided that Indemnitor shall not settle or compromise any claim that results in liability or admission of any liability by Indemnitee without its prior written consent; and (c) Indemnitee cooperates with Indemnitor. An Indemnitee is entitled to participate in the defense of a Claim at its own expense. Indemnitor shall pay any Expenses that Indemnitee incurs in connection with defense of the Claim before Indemnitor assumes the defense, except with respect to any period during which the Indemnitee fails to timely notify Indemnitor of that Claim. If both Parties are negligent or otherwise at fault or strictly liable without fault, then the Indemnitor shall indemnify Indemnitee only for the percentage of responsibility for the damage or injuries attributable to Indemnitor.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
12.1. Damages Excluded. Neither Party nor their respective Affiliates will be liable to the other under this Agreement, under any legal theory (whether in contract, tort, negligence or otherwise) for any incidental, consequential, indirect, special, exemplary, or punitive loss or damages; or for lost profits, lost sales or business, lost data (through no fault of StreamYard), business interruption, loss of goodwill, costs of cover or replacement, whether or not such Party has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
12.2. Monetary Cap. Each Party’s aggregate liability to the other and its Affiliates arising out of this Agreement shall not exceed the Subscription Fees paid by You (or, as applied to Your aggregate liability, payable by You) during the twelve (12) months before the first event giving rise to such liability. This limitation of liability applies in aggregate to each Party’s and its Affiliates' claims and shall not be cumulative. If applicable based on Your Total Spend, the Enhanced Terms in Appendix 1 apply.
12.3. Exclusions. Notwithstanding Section 12.2, nothing in this Agreement excludes or limits the liability for (a) either Party for death or personal injury caused by its acts or omissions; (b) either Party’s gross negligence, fraud, fraudulent misrepresentations, or intentional misconduct; (c) amounts owed by You under any Orders; (d) Customer’s breach of the license hereunder; or (e) either Party’s indemnification obligations in Section 11.
12.4. Risk Allocation. The Sections on limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, and warranties allocate the risks of the Agreement between the Parties. This allocation is reflected in the pricing of the Services and is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the Parties. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages or personal injury or death, so some of the above limitations may not apply to You. In these jurisdictions, such Party’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by Law.
13.1. Compliance with Laws. Each Party agrees to abide by all Laws to the extent applicable to its performance or exercise of its rights under this Agreement.
13.2. Anti-Corruption. Each Party represents that it has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from any employees or agents of the other Party in connection with this Agreement. If a Party learns of any violation of the above restriction, it will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify the other Party.
13.3. Economic Sanctions and Export Controls. You acknowledge that StreamYard Services are subject to the economic sanctions and export control laws of the United Kingdom and United States. You agree to comply with such laws, in addition to the laws of any other applicable jurisdiction, in Your use of the Service and agree to not cause StreamYard to violate such laws. Further, You represent and warrant that You: (a) are not organized under the laws of, ordinarily resident in, or located in, a region that is the target of comprehensive U.S. economic sanctions (currently Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria and the Crimea region of Ukraine); (b) are not included on any US, EU or UK restricted party list (e.g., Specially Designated Nationals List and Entity List, among others) or otherwise subject to such restrictions based on Your ownership; (c) will not use the Service to support chemical/biological weapons, nuclear, missiles or military activities unless authorized by all applicable laws; and (d) will not permit any person described in the foregoing to use any StreamYard product or service or otherwise participate in any Stream. This section applies except to the extent it would cause any person, including StreamYard and You, to contravene, where applicable, the EU’s Blocking Regulation or the UK’s Protection of Trading Interests Legislation.
13.4. Assignment. You may not, directly or indirectly, by law or otherwise, assign any part of this Agreement or Your rights under this Agreement, or delegate performance of Your duties under this Agreement, without Our prior written consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. We may, without notice to You and without Your consent, assign or transfer this Agreement to any Affiliate, or in connection with any merger or change of control, or the sale of all or substantially all of Our assets, or the sale of all or substantially all of Our assets related to a specific Product. This Agreement will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns. If applicable, the Enhanced Terms apply.
13.5. Integration. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and supersedes any prior agreements between You and StreamYard regarding the subject matter hereof. This Agreement shall apply in place of the terms or conditions in any purchase order or other order documentation You or any entity which You represent provides (all such terms or conditions being void), and, except as stated herein, there are no other agreements, representations, warranties or commitments which may be relied upon by either Party regarding the subject matter hereof.
13.6. Amendment. We may amend this Agreement from time to time, in which case the new Agreement will supersede prior versions. We will notify You not less than 10 days before the effective date of any material amendment that materially and adversely affects Your rights under this Agreement, and Your continued use of the Services following the effective date will be Your agreement to any such amendment. Amendments that are simply addressing new functions We add to the Services or which do not impose any additional burdens or obligations on You will be effective immediately.
