Unless specified in a Transaction Document: (a) SG does not warrant or support Non-SG Services, (b) as between SG and Customer, Customer assumes all responsibility for the Non-SG Services and any disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Data by the Non-SG Services and (c) SG shall have no liability for, and Customer is not relieved of any obligations under the Agreement or entitled to any refund, credit, or other compensation due to any unavailability of the Non-SG Services or any change in the ability of SG to interoperate with the Non-SG Services.

If Customer fails to comply with a Service Notice within the time period set forth in the Service Notice,SG may suspend Customer’s access to the Services until the requested action is taken. If Customer fails to take the required action within ten (10) days or on two or more occasions during any rolling twelve (12) month period, SG may terminate the Agreement immediately for cause. All limitations of access, suspensions, and terminations for cause shall be made in SG’s sole discretion and SG shall not be liable to Customer or any third party for any termination of Customer’s account or access to the Services.
3.0 Terms and Termination. The “Term” is set forth in theTransaction Document and automatically renews for successive terms of equal duration unless either party notifies the other of its intent to not renew at least sixty days prior to the expiration of the applicable Term. Termination of an individual Transaction Document shall not terminate any Services under otherTransaction Documents. These Terms & Conditions shall apply to, and remain effective for the Term of, any extant Transaction Document. If no TransactionDocument is in effect, either party may terminate these Terms & Conditions at any time upon notice to the other party.
Either party may terminate a Transaction Document if the other materially breaches this Agreement and such breach continues unremedied for thirty days following notice or such other period designated herein. SG may immediately suspend all Transaction Documents for payments not received within thirty days of date.
Customer acknowledges and confirms that the fees set forth in the Transaction Document are committed for the Term and will become payable regardless of actual use ofServices. Except for a termination by Customer as expressly permitted hereunder, if a Transaction Document is terminated prior to end of the Term for any reason (including if Customer ceases use of the Services prior to expiration or termination of the Term), such a termination shall constitute a material breach of the Agreement. Because it is very difficult to accurately estimate the harm caused by this breach or any other material breach of theAgreement by the Customer, the parties agree that as compensation and not as a penalty SG shall be entitled to invoice, and Customer agrees to pay, the committed fees outstanding for the remainder of the then-current Term, in addition to all other fees outstanding at the date of termination.
4.0 Fees and Payments. If the Transaction Document specifies that payment will occur by a method other than a credit card, Customer will provide a purchase order number in the applicable amount (or reasonable alternative proof of Customer’s ability to pay the fees specified in a Transaction Document), and promptly notify SG of any changes necessary for payment of an invoice. SG will invoice Customer either monthly or according to the billing frequency stated in the TransactionDocument. Invoices to be paid by credit card are due on the invoice date, all other invoices are due net 30 days from the invoice date. If any invoiced amount is not received by SG by the due date, then without limiting SG’s rights or remedies: (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower and (b) SG may condition future subscription renewals and TransactionDocuments on shorter payment terms. If Customer is paying for Services by credit card, Customer will provide SG with valid credit card information and promptly notify SG of any changes necessary to charge the credit card. The provision of credit card information to SG authorizes SG to charge the credit card for all Services specified in a Transaction Document, and any renewal subscription.
4.1 Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by Customer is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of invoices to be paid by credit card), SG may, without limiting any rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s unpaid fee obligations to become immediately due and payable, and suspend the provision of Services to Customer until the overdue amounts are paid in full. SG will give Customer at least 10 days’ prior notice that its account is overdue, in accordance with Section 16 (Integration,Amendment, Severability, and Electronic Communications), before suspending services to Customer.
4.2 Payment Disputes. SG will not exercise any rights to suspend Services, accelerate payments, impose late charges or change payment terms under Section 4 (Fees and Payments) with respect to an overdue amount for so long as Customer is disputing the overdue amount in good faith. The parties shall cooperate diligently to resolve the dispute.
4.3 Non-Payment. In addition to any other rights granted to SG herein, SG reserves the right to suspend or terminate Customer’s access to the Services if Customer’s account becomes delinquent. Customer agrees to pay all reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by SG with respect to collecting any past due balance. Any amount disputed by Customer pursuant to Section 4 (Fees and Payments) that is deemed by a judge or arbitrator to be due and payable to SG will be deemed to be past due as of the original due date for purposes of the calculation of interest and eligibility for attorneys’ fees and costs. No endorsement or statement to the contrary on any check or payment, or on any letter accompanying any check or payment, or elsewhere will be construed as an accord or satisfaction. SG reserves the right to require payment assurance at any time.
4.4 Taxes. SG’s Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities. Customer is responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, except for taxes based solely on SG’s income. If SG has the legal obligation to pay or collect any such amounts for which Customer is responsible, the appropriate amount will be invoiced to and paid by Customer, unless Customer provides SG with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority (along with an English translation, if applicable)covering such amount.
5.0 Licenses and Proprietary
5.1 Ownership and Licenses. Except for the limited rights expressly granted in these Terms of Service, neither party transfers or otherwise licenses to the other party any technology, software, or other intellectual property rights. Customer retains all right, title, and interest in and toContent. Content will not be deemed part of any Services by virtue of being located on or served from SG servers.
5.3 Marketing. Each party may use the other party’s name, trade name, trademarks, icons, and logos (collectively, the “Brands”) to refer publicly to the other, orally and in writing, as a customer/vendor of the other solely in connection with theServices and only during the Term. Any other use of a party’s Brands requires such party’s prior written consent.
5.4 Typographical Errors. If an SG product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price,SG reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for any product listed at the incorrect price. SG reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged or not.

5.6 Government Rights. The Services may include access to software. In such case, such software is commercial computer software, as such term is defined in 48C.F.R. §2.101. Accordingly, if Customer is an agency of, or contractor to, theUS Government, it receives only those rights with respect to such software as are granted to all other end users under license, in accordance with (a) 48C.F.R. §227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. §227.7204, with respect to the Department ofDefense and their contractors, or (b) 48 C.F.R. §12.212, with respect to all other US Government licensees and their contractors. If Customer is a government agency that has a need for rights not granted under the Agreement, it must negotiate with SG to determine if there are acceptable terms for granting those rights, and mutually acceptable written terms specifically granting those rights must be included in any applicable agreement.
6.0 Confidential Information. If the parties are subject to an effective nondisclosure or confidentiality agreement with rights and obligations at least as favorable to SG as this section, then that agreement will be deemed to supersede in its entirety the language of this section until such time as that agreement no longer applies to the then-current exchange of information.“Confidential Information” is non-public information that includes, but is not limited to, the terms of these Terms of Service, any Transaction Document, and any Service Level Agreement; information concerning SG’s pricing terms, operations, methods of doing business, technologies, technical designs, research and development, know how, trade secrets, software source code, computer programs, algorithms, technical specifications and data, testing and bench-marking procedures and results, customers, personnel, financial information and other confidential or proprietary information belonging to or provided by or on behalf of SG, or information the party receiving such information, the Customer, should reasonably know is confidential to SG. The term“Confidential Information” as used in this section does not include information that (i) was or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by Customer or its directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors or advisors ("Representatives"); (ii) was or becomes available to Customer on a non-confidential basis from a source other than SG or its Representatives, provided such source is not bound by a confidentiality obligation with SG; (iii) was within Customer's possession prior to it being furnished to Customer by or on behalf of SG, provided the source of such information was not bound by a confidentiality obligation owed to SG with respect thereto; or (iv) is Content. Each party agrees that it will not use, modify, copy, or disclose to any third party Confidential Information, except in furtherance of the relationship between the parties or as required bylaw. Customer may disclose SG’s Confidential Information to Customer’s Representatives solely as necessary to meet their obligations under these Terms of Service. Customer will also ensure that all Representatives are aware of the confidential and/or proprietary nature of the Confidential Information and have themselves an obligation of confidentiality providing no less restrictive and substantially the same protections as are provided under these Terms ofService. Customer will take measures to protect Confidential Information at least as stringent as those measures that it takes to protect the confidentiality and security of its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event will Customer use less than reasonable care.
