Licensee and DiscoverOrg hereby agree as follows:
1. SCOPE, GRANT OF LICENSE
1.1 This Agreement governs Licensee’s access to and use of certain Licensed Materials (defined below) made available to Licensee by DiscoverOrg, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, or any of its subsidiaries, with an office and place of business located at 805 Broadway Street, Suite 900, Vancouver, Washington 98660 (“DiscoverOrg”) and Licensee’s access to and use of any DiscoverOrg Technology.
1.2 The “Licensed Materials” consist of all electronic information as described in any Ordering Document executed between the parties, which shall be published or otherwise made available by DiscoverOrg to Licensee under this Agreement. The “DiscoverOrg Technology” consists of software, websites, networks, and equipment made available or used by DiscoverOrg pursuant to this Agreement to facilitate Licensee’s access to and/or use of the Licensed Materials, including but not limited to DiscoverOrg’s online graphical user interface available at go.discoverdyb.com and DiscoverOrg’s Integration Tools (collectively, the “DiscoverOrg Technology”). DiscoverOrg technology does not include and specifically excludes Third Party Applications.
1.3 Subject to the terms and conditions herein, DiscoverOrg hereby grants to Licensee a non-exclusive license to access and use the Licensed Materials and the DiscoverOrg Technology, and to provide the Licensed Materials and DiscoverOrg Technology to Authorized Users in accordance with this Agreement, during the Term of this Agreement.
1.4 Third Party Applications. “Third Party Applications” means computer software programs and other technology that are provided or made available to Licensee or Authorized Users by third parties, including those with which the DiscoverOrg Technology may interoperate. Where agreed between the parties, DiscoverOrg may provide certain Integration Tools, which consist of DiscoverOrg Technology designed to allow Licensee to use DiscoverOrg Technology and the Licensed Materials in such a way as to interoperate with a Third Party Application. DiscoverOrg is not responsible for and does not endorse any Third Party Applications or websites linked to by DiscoverOrg Technology.
2. DELIVERY/ACCESS OF LICENSED MATERIALS TO LICENSEE
DiscoverOrg will make the Licensed Materials available to the Licensee in digital form via password-protected online access accessible by Licensee with usernames and passwords provided to Licensee by DiscoverOrg, or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.
3. FEES AND TAXES
Licensee shall pay all fees stated in the Ordering Document (the “Subscription Fee”). Failure to pay the Subscription Fee when due may result in, in DiscoverOrg’s sole discretion and without notice to Licensee, (i) restriction or suspension of Licensee’s online access to the Licensed Materials until all past-due payments are made or (ii) termination of this Agreement. Restriction or suspension of Licensee’s online access to the Licensed Materials during period of non-payment shall have no effect on the Term of this Agreement nor on Licensee’s obligation to pay the Subscription Fee. This is not intended to be DiscoverOrg’s exclusive remedy, and DiscoverOrg retains all rights and remedies it may have at law or in equity.
Licensee is responsible for any applicable taxes, including without limitation, any sales, use, levies, duties, or any value added or similar taxes payable with respect to Licensee’s subscription and assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal, or foreign jurisdiction. Unless expressly specified otherwise in the Ordering Document, all fees, rates, and estimates exclude sales taxes. If DiscoverOrg believes any such tax applies to Licensee’s subscription and DiscoverOrg has a duty to collect and remit such tax, the same may be set forth on an invoice to Licensee unless Licensee provides DiscoverOrg with a valid tax exemption certificate, direct pay permit, or multi-state use certificate, and shall be paid by Licensee immediately or as provided in such invoice. Licensee shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless DiscoverOrg and its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents, partners, successors, and permitted assigns against any and all actual or threatened claims, actions, or proceedings of any taxing authority arising from or related to the failure to pay taxes owed by Licensee, except to the extent directly caused by a failure of DiscoverOrg to remit amounts collected for such purpose from Licensee.
