In addition, you agree to provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device. You shall not attempt to access any other of Quick Base's systems, programs or data that are not made available for public use by Quick Base.

2. Service Fees.

You agree to pay any applicable fees for the Service plan described on your account page. If (a) the number of users granted access exceeds the number of users purchased, or (b) you exceed the number of applications, attachments, file space or other plan or package entitlements during the subscription term, Quick Base reserves the right to invoice you for such overage.  Quick Base reserves the right to change fees for the Service at any time, at its discretion, with notice to you, which notice may be provided to your email address on file with Quick Base or through your Quick Base account; provided, that any increase in fees shall take effect on the renewal of your then-current subscription term.

2.2 Payment Terms.

Users may have the option to subscribe to a Service plan that provides for (a) monthly or (b) annual payments. For monthly subscriptions, fees shall be due and payable to Quick Base by credit card monthly in advance on the billing date as displayed in the Service. For annual or multi-year subscriptions, fees shall be due and payable to Quick Base by check or wire/ACH transfer within thirty (30) days from the date of Quick Base’s invoice and you will be invoiced on an annual basis or about the beginning of your subscription start date agreed to by you in the Quick Base order form for the Service.

As between you and Quick Base, you will be responsible for collecting and remitting all taxes related to the use of the Service. You will make all payments to Quick Base free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes or duties; any such taxes or duties imposed on payments of fees to Quick Base will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide Quick Base with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as Quick Base may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.

9. Confidentiality.

Each party who accesses and uses the Service or the Exchange and Quick Base (together the "parties") shall keep in confidence all of the information maintained by the Service or the Exchange, as well as any trade secrets, know-how, software, product and technology-related information; customer lists, financial information, sales, marketing and business plans, personal identifiable information such as the names of a party’s customers, source code, product roadmap and cost and pricing data, whether or not so marked or identified as confidential or proprietary ("Confidential Information").

All rights, title and interest in and to the Confidential Information shall remain vested in the party disclosing the Confidential Information ("Disclosing Party"). No rights are granted to the party receiving the Confidential Information ("Receiving Party") by license or otherwise, express or implied, to any trademark, trade secret, copyright, invention, discovery, or to any patent covering the invention or discovery, or any other intellectual property right, nor is the Receiving Party granted any rights in or to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential information, except the limited right to review the Confidential Information solely in performance under these Terms of Service. All rights relating to the Confidential Information that are not expressly granted to the Receiving Party are reserved and retained by the Disclosing Party. ALL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS, CONDITIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, ARE DISCLAIMED.

The parties shall (a) take reasonable care to prevent unauthorized disclosure or use of the Confidential Information, but in any case not less than the care it takes to protect its own Confidential Information; prevent any unauthorized access, reproduction, disclosure, or use of any of the Confidential Information; (b) use Confidential Information solely in performance under these Terms of Service; (c) restrict access to Confidential Information to its officers, directors, agents, contractors, employees, or representatives who have a need to know such information and who are prohibited from disclosing the information by a contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation no less restrictive than these provisions, including employees of any legal entity the Receiving Party controls, or is controlled by, or under common control, directly or indirectly, by ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the voting shares; (d) not remove any copyright or trademark notice, or indication of confidentiality on Confidential Information; and (e) immediately notify in writing the Disclosing Party in the event of unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information. Subsections (a) through (e) above impose no obligation upon Receiving Party to the extent Receiving Party can demonstrate and document that the Confidential Information was rightfully: (i) known by Receiving Party, without restriction, prior to its receipt from Disclosing Party; (ii) obtained from a third party that had no obligation of confidentiality; (iii) in the public domain through no improper conduct by Receiving Party; or (iv) independently developed by or for Receiving Party without access to the Confidential Information.

The Receiving Party is only permitted to disclose Confidential Information if required by court order, law or regulation, provided however, that Receiving Party shall: (a) give Disclosing Party written notice promptly upon receipt of such a disclosure requirement before any disclosure is made, if legally permitted, and cooperate should Disclosing Party object to such disclosure; and (b) disclose only the Confidential Information that is required by that law or regulation. The parties shall return (or delete in case of electronic copies of such information) any and all Confidential Information, and all copies thereof, upon the other party's request provided that (i) as to your active Service data and the Content contained therein, you may delete data per standard Service procedures, or only upon e-mail or other written instruction by your account administrator; and (ii) as to backed-up Service data and the Content contained therein, such Service data and/or Content will be automatically deleted over time pursuant to Quick Base's standard back-up procedures for the Service. The parties shall immediately give notice to the other party of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the other party's Confidential Information.

The rights and obligations under this Section 9 shall survive expiration, rescission or termination of these Terms of Service. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Receiving Party’s obligations to protect Confidential Information received shall continue for five (5) years from the date of disclosure by Disclosing Party.

Nothing in these Terms of Service shall prohibit or restrict either party’s right to possess, develop, use, or market products or services, alone or with others, similar to or competitive with those disclosed in the Confidential Information, in compliance with these Terms of Service.

The parties agree that unauthorized use of Confidential Information or other breach of these Terms of Service may cause irreparable harm for which remedies at law would be inadequate, and that a party is entitled to seek equitable relief, in addition to remedies at law.

Quick Base may disclose or report Confidential Information in limited circumstances where it believes in good faith that disclosure is required under the law. For example, Quick Base may be required to disclose Confidential Information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, to comply with a legal process such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or a law enforcement request.

Do NOT use the Quick Base Service or Applications made available through the Service or Exchange to collect and store credit card numbers. Credit card numbers must be stored pursuant to PCI compliance guidelines, and Quick Base is not PCI compliant. You shall be liable to Quick Base for any damages, fines, penalties and other liabilities Quick Base may incur as a result of your or your users' breach of the foregoing.

10. Audits.

Quick Base shall reasonably cooperate with you (at your cost) or with an applicable regulatory authority in connection with the examination of your Content or other data in your Quick Base accounts by such applicable regulatory authority in connection with an audit or other formal proceeding by such regulatory authority.

11. Registered Entities.

If you are a Registered Entity and permit your affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, and/or any third party access and/or use the Service and/or your Content, you shall be solely responsible for (i) their acts and/or omissions in connection with their access and/or use of the Service and (ii) ensuring that their access and/or use of the Service is in compliance with these Terms of Service, and any and all applicable local laws, rules and regulations. You agree to fully indemnify Quick Base and its affiliates, subsidiaries, licensors, and online service providers (collectively, "Representatives") for any liability, fines, penalties, costs, claims and/or damages incurred by Quick Base and/or the Representatives in connection with any claim related to the access and/or use of the Service and/or your Content by you, your affiliates, subsidiaries, employees or any third-party authorized by you. You agree to notify Quick Base immediately upon discovery of any unauthorized access or use of the Service, or any password or account, or any known or suspected breach of security in connection with the Service.

12. Modifications to the Service or Agreements.

Quick Base reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify the Service (or any part thereof), the Exchange, or any related service or offering with or without notice. We may assign a specific URL for your use with Quick Base. You understand and agree that we have the right to modify or retire that URL at any time, with reasonable notice to you. In such case, we may assign you a replacement URL. Should Quick Base choose to permanently discontinue the Service, Quick Base (i) will send notification to your Account Administrator via e-mail at least sixty (60) days prior to such discontinuance and (ii) will post notification of this decision on the Service web site at least thirty (30) days prior to such discontinuance. In such instance, you will be responsible for retrieving your data from the Service during the sixty (60)-day period referenced in (i).

Quick Base may establish or revise from time to time general practices and limits concerning your use of the Service consistent with its general practices and limits for its other customers that have purchased the same plan or package, including without limitation: (i) establishing the maximum amount of storage space that you are allotted within the Service at any given time; and (ii) limiting the amount of bandwidth you may use within the Service in a given period of time. Quick Base may limit without notice the volume of email forwarding or file downloading from your database within the Service in response to unreasonable activity (such as spamming or hosting a publicly accessible exchange of large data files) as determined in Quick Base’s reasonable discretion. Quick Base reserves the right to change these general practices and limits at its sole discretion and will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with as much notice of such changes as possible, except in the event of an emergency or a material performance, availability, stability, or legal issue affecting the Service.

You agree that Quick Base shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service, the Exchange, any resulting loss or destruction of any Content that you place on the Service, or removal of an Application from the Exchange. Quick Base may specify from time to time the version(s) of related products required in order to use the Service (e.g., supported browser versions). Quick Base may periodically modify these Terms of Service, the Supplemental Terms, any Additional Terms or any other agreement incorporated herein by reference. In the event Quick Base modifies any terms, Quick Base may post it to the Service web site and may, promptly thereafter, notify your Account Administrator via e-mail that such posting has been made. Your continued use of the Service, or your submission of your Application to Quick Base for distribution via the Exchange, or your download or access to Applications from the Exchange after such modification shall constitute your acceptance of the Terms of Service, any Additional Terms, and/or the Supplemental Terms with the new modifications, as applicable. If you do not agree to any of such changes, you may terminate the Terms of Service, the Additional Terms, and/or the Supplemental Terms, as applicable and immediately cease all access and use of the Service, Application(s) and/or submission of new Applications to Quick Base.  In addition, Quick Base may at any time introduce separate Terms of Service for users in certain jurisdictions and require users in these jurisdictions to agree to the separate Terms of Service. In all cases, you and all users agree that termination of the Terms of Service, the Supplemental Terms, any Additional Terms, and any separate Terms of Service, and cessation of all access and use of the Service and Applications provided via the Exchange would be the exclusive remedy if you and such users do not wish to comply with the Terms of Service, the Supplemental Terms or other agreements incorporated therein by reference.
