Except with regard to amounts due under this Agreement, and a party’s breach of Section 2.10 (Confidential Information), the maximum liability of either party to any person, firm or corporation whatsoever arising out of or in the connection with any license, use or other employment of the Service, whether such liability arises from any claim based on breach or repudiation of contract, breach of warranty, negligence, tort, statutory duty, or otherwise, shall in no case exceed the equivalent of 12 months in subscription fees applicable at the time of the event, and in the event of a breach of Section 2.10 (Confidential Information) of this Terms of Service, such maximum liability of either party shall be an amount equal to three (3) times the equivalent of 12 months of subscription fees applicable at the time of the event.

The parties acknowledge that the limitations set forth in this Section are integral to the amount of fees charged in connection with making the Service available to Customer and that, were Solartis to assume any further liability other than as set forth herein, such fees would of necessity be set substantially higher.
THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION SHALL NOT APPLY TO EITHER PARTY’S INDEMNITY OBLIGATIONS EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 6 BELOW. Certain states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the exclusions set forth above may not apply to Customer.
6.1. Infringement. Solartis shall, at its own expense and subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 6, defend Customer from and against any and all allegations, threats, claims, suits, and proceedings brought by third parties alleging that the Service, as used in accordance with this Agreement, infringes third party copyrights, trade secrets or trademarks (collectively “Claims”) and shall hold Customer harmless from and against liability, damages, and costs finally awarded or entered into in settlement (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively,“Losses”) to the extent based upon such a Claim.

The rights and remedies granted Customer under this Section 6.1 state Solartis’s entire liability, and Customer's exclusive remedy, with respect to any claim of infringement of the intellectual property rights of a third party.
6.2. Disclosure of Customer Data.
Solartis shall, at its own expense and subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 6, defend Customer from and against any Claims that arise out of or result directly from Solartis’s gross negligence or willful misconduct in preventing unauthorized access to confidential Customer Data, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in connection with a Claim alleging a breach of confidentiality, and shall hold Customer harmless from and against liability for any Losses to the extent based upon such Claims.
When Solartis is at fault but such fault does not rise to the level of gross negligence or willful misconduct, Solartis shall, at its own expense and subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 6 and the amount of liability set forth in Section 5 applicable in the event of a breach of Section 2.10, defend Customer from and against any Claims, and shall hold Customer harmless from and against liability for any Losses to the extent based upon Claims, arising out of or relating to Solartis’s breach
of Section 2.10 (Confidential Information) of this Terms of Service.

6.3. Customer’s Indemnity. Customer shall, at its own expense and subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 6, defend Solartis from and against any and all Claims (i) alleging that the Customer Data or any trademarks or service marks other than Solartis Marks, or any use thereof, infringes the intellectual property rights or other rights, or has caused harm to a third party, or (ii) arising out of Customer’s breach of Section 2.4 (Customer’s Lawful Conduct) or 2.10 (Confidential Information) above and shall hold Solartis harmless from and against liability for any Losses to the extent based upon such Claims.
6.4. Indemnification Procedures and Survival. In the event of a potential indemnity obligation under this Section 6, the indemnified party shall: (i) promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of such Claim; (ii) allow the indemnifying party to have sole control of its defense and settlement; and (iii) upon request of the indemnifying party, cooperate in all reasonable respects, at the indemnifying party’s cost and expense, with the indemnifying party in the investigation, trial, and defense of such
Claim and any appeal arising therefrom. The indemnification obligations under this Section 6 are expressly conditioned upon the indemnified party’s compliance with this Section 6.4 except that failure to notify the indemnifying party of such Claim shall not relieve that party of its obligations under this Section 6 but such Claim shall be reduced to the extent of any damages attributable to such failure. The indemnification obligations contained in this Section 6 shall survive termination of this Agreement for one year.
7.1. Suspension for Delinquent Account. Solartis reserves the right to suspend Customer’s and any Customer Affiliates’ access to and/or use of the Service for any accounts (i) for which any payment is due but unpaid but only after Solartis has provided Customer two (2) delinquency notices, and at least thirty (30) days have passed since the transmission of the first notice, or (ii) for which Customer has not paid for the renewal term and has not notified Solartis of its desire to renew the Service by the End Date of the then current term.

Customer agrees that Solartis shall not be liable to Customer or to any Customer Affiliate or other third party for any suspension of the Service pursuant to this Section 7.1.
7.2. Suspension for Ongoing Harm. Customer agrees that Solartis may with reasonably contemporaneous telephonic notice to Customer suspend access to the Service if Solartis reasonably concludes that Customer’s Service is being used to engage in denial of service attacks, spamming, or illegal activity, and/or use of Customer’s Service is causing immediate, material and ongoing harm to Solartis or others. In the extraordinary event that Solartis suspends Customer’s access to the Service, Solartis will use commercially reasonable efforts to limit the suspension to the offending portion of the Service and resolve the issues causing the suspension of Service. Customer further agrees that Solartis shall not be liable to Customer nor to any third party for any suspension of the Service under such circumstances as described in this Section 7.2.
7.3. Termination for Cause, Expiration. Either party may immediately terminate this Agreement and all Estimates/Order Forms issued hereunder in the event the other party commits a material breach of any provision of this Agreement which is not cured within thirty (30) days of written notice from the non-breaching party.

Customer’s request, Solartis will grant Customer limited access to the Service for several days for the sole purpose of permitting Customer to retrieve Customer Data, provided that Customer has paid in full all good faith undisputed amounts owed to Solartis.
