Customer understands and agrees to the legal disclaimer located at /terms/legal-disclaimer. Without limiting such disclaimer, or the additional disclaimers set forth in Section 9 of this Agreement, Customer agrees as follows:
1.1 The Products are not provided by a law firm and do not constitute legal advice. SixFifty is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice or represent Customer in any way. Use of the Products does not create an actual or potential client relationship with SixFifty, any of its employees, any Affiliate of SixFifty, including any affiliated law firm or attorney, or constitute legal advice.
1.2 The Products are not attorney work product. Customer agrees that any information Customer provides to SixFifty is not protected by attorney-client privilege or as attorney work product. Such information is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney. SixFifty disclaims all liability in respect of actions taken, or not taken, based on any or all materials made available to Customer by SixFifty, to the fullest extent permitted by law. Customer understands that it should not act or refrain from acting upon information provided by SixFifty without seeking professional legal counsel.
1.3 The Products alone are not sufficient to ensure compliance with laws, regulations or contractual or professional obligations. Customer understands and agrees that the Products may not be sufficient, alone or in combination, to ensure compliance with any law, regulation, or contractual or professional obligation. Customer understands and agrees that SixFifty does not: (a) review Customer’s documents or any information provided by Customer for accuracy or legal sufficiency; (b) draw legal conclusions; (c) provide legal advice; or (d) apply the law to the facts of Customer’s particular situation. Customer understands and agrees that SixFifty does not and cannot ensure that the documents generated through use of the web application will be enforceable or valid in all jurisdictions, or adequately address Customer’s needs.
1.4 The Products rely on Customer-provided information. Customer is solely responsible for providing correct, complete, and up-to-date information to SixFifty. SixFifty does not verify the accuracy or completeness of any information provided by Customer. Customer acknowledges that the Products depend on Customer performing its obligations under this Agreement. SixFifty shall not be liable for any loss arising from Customer’s failure to fulfil its obligations hereunder.
1.5 Customer is responsible for any personal data that it provides to SixFifty. In respect of any personal data shared with SixFifty by Customer, SixFifty assumes that Customer has the necessary authority to permit SixFifty to use and transfer such personal data in accordance with this Agreement, including consent where applicable or required by law. In no event shall Customer disclose sensitive personal data to SixFifty, absent express written amendment to this Agreement. Customer is solely liable for assessing risk with respect to the use, disclosure, storage, transfer, and other processing of such data.
2.1 Products and Services; Order Forms. This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions on which SixFifty may make available to Customer its online legal form generation service, including related application programming interfaces (the “Online Service”), and certain related Delivered Materials (defined in Section 3.3 below) and Implementation Services (defined in Section 3.4 below) (the Online Service and such related products and services, collectively, “Products”), as expressly identified in a quote, order form, sales order statement of work, or other ordering document that (a) is accepted by the Parties and (b) expressly references and incorporates these Master Terms (defined in Section 2.3 below) (each, an “Order Form”).

2.2 Order Form Term. Unless earlier terminated in accordance with this Agreement or the applicable Order Form, each Order Form will continue for the initial term specified in such Order Form (“Initial Order Form Term”) and, if such Order Form provides for automatic renewal, then, unless either Party provides the other with notice of non-renewal, upon the date of expiration of the then-current term, such Order Form will automatically renew for successive terms (each, a “Renewal Term”) equal in length to the Initial Order Form Term (the Initial Order Form Term and each Renewal Term, if any, collectively, the “Order Form Term” of such Order Form). Notice of non-renewal of an Order Form must be provided by a Party at least 30 days prior to the end of the Initial Order Form Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable. Renewal of any Order Form may be conditioned on and subject to Customer’s agreement to the then-current version of these Master Terms. Termination of this Agreement will terminate all Order Form Terms then in effect. Customer acknowledges that its access to the Products may be automatically disabled upon expiration of the applicable Order Form Term.

Customer will immediately terminate any unauthorized use by persons having access to a Product through Customer.
5. OWNERSHIP; INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
5.1 Ownership. As between the Parties, Customer acknowledges that SixFifty owns all right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Products (collectively, “SixFifty IP”) and SixFifty reserves all rights not expressly granted to Customer under this Agreement. To the extent that Customer has or obtains any ownership interest in any SixFifty IP, Customer hereby assigns to SixFifty all right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the SixFifty IP. Customer will not undertake any act or omission that would impair SixFifty’s (or its licensors’) rights in any SixFifty IP or any other materials, information, processes, or subject matter owned by SixFifty or its licensors.
5.2 Customer Data. As between SixFifty and Customer, Customer retains all right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to: (a) any data or information that Customer uploads or inputs into a Product or otherwise makes available to SixFifty, including in connection with Customer’s use of a Product; and (b) data that is generated and made available to Customer by any Product through use of the data described in part (a) above ((a) and (b) collectively, “Customer Data”). Customer hereby grants SixFifty a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable, fully transferable, irrevocable license to use, process, transmit, store, and disclose the Customer Data: (a) during the Term, for the purpose of exercising SixFifty’s rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement; and (b) in perpetuity, in a form that does not identify Customer as the source thereof, for its business purposes, including to develop and improve SixFifty’s and its Affiliates’ products and services. Customer represents and warrants that Customer has all rights necessary to grant SixFifty the licenses set forth in this Section 5.2 and to enable SixFifty to exercise its rights under the same without violation or infringement of the rights of any third party. As between the Parties, SixFifty owns all right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Products, and any improvements to any SixFifty products or services made as a result of SixFifty’s use, processing, or generation of Customer Data. Customer understands that SixFifty uses third-party vendors to process certain data, and that SixFifty may transfer Customer Data to such third-party vendors, including in connection with data storage and processing.

6. FEES AND PAYMENT
6.1 Fees and Payment Terms. Customer will pay SixFifty the fees and any other amounts owing under this Agreement as specified in the applicable Order Form. Unless otherwise specified in such Order Form, Customer will pay all amounts due within 30 days after the date of the applicable invoice. Any amount not paid when due will be subject to finance charges equal to 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable usury law, whichever is less, determined and compounded daily from the date due until the date paid. Customer will reimburse any costs or expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by SixFifty to collect any amount that is not paid when due. Amounts due from Customer under this Agreement may not be withheld or offset by Customer against amounts due to Customer for any reason.
6.2 Recurring Payments. Customer acknowledges that its subscription may include automatically recurring payments for periodic charges, and to the extent indicated in an Order Form authorizes SixFifty to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until cancellation of Customer’s account, those periodic charges. Customer will be charged automatically on the Order Effective Date, and on the first day of each billing cycle thereafter, for all applicable fees and taxes for the applicable subscription period. The subscription will continue unless and until Customer’s account or subscription is canceled. Customer must cancel its subscription before renewal in order to avoid billing of the next periodic charge. SixFifty will bill the periodic charges to the payment method Customer provides to SixFifty during registration (or to a different payment method if Customer updates its payment information). Customer may cancel its subscription through Customer’s administrator account on the Online Service or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
6.3 Taxes. Other than net income taxes imposed on SixFifty, Customer will bear all taxes, duties, and other governmental charges (collectively, “Taxes”) resulting from this Agreement. Customer will pay any additional Taxes as are necessary to ensure that the net amounts received by SixFifty after all such Taxes are paid are equal to the amounts to which SixFifty would have been entitled in accordance with this Agreement if such additional Taxes did not exist.
7. TERM AND TERMINATION
7.1 Term. This Agreement will remain in effect until terminated in accordance with this Section 7 (the “Term”).
7.2 Termination for Convenience. At any time when no Order Form is in effect, either Party may terminate this Agreement for convenience immediately upon notice to the other Party.
7.3 Termination for Material Breach. Either Party may terminate this Agreement or one or more Order Forms if the other Party does not cure its material breach of this Agreement or the applicable Order Form(s) within 30 days of receiving written notice of the material breach from the non-breaching Party. Termination in accordance with this Section 7.3 will take effect when the breaching Party receives written notice of termination from the non-breaching Party, which notice must not be delivered until the breaching Party has failed to cure its material breach during the 30-day cure period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SixFifty may immediately terminate this Agreement upon notice to Customer if SixFifty reasonably believes that Customer has violated Section 4.1, has attempted to assign or sublicense any right granted by this Agreement except as expressly permitted herein, or has otherwise taken any actions that threaten or challenge SixFifty’s intellectual property rights, including rights in and to any Product. Without limiting any other provision of this Section 7.3, if Customer fails to timely pay any fees, SixFifty may, without limitation to any of its other rights or remedies, suspend Customer’s access to all Products until it receives all amounts due.
7.4 Termination for Bankruptcy or Insolvency. Either Party may terminate this Agreement if the other Party ceases to do business in the ordinary course, or is declared bankrupt, or is the subject of any liquidation or insolvency proceeding which is not dismissed within one hundred twenty (120) days, or makes any assignment for the benefit of creditors.
7.5 Post-Termination Obligations. If this Agreement is terminated for any reason, Customer will pay to SixFifty any fees or other amounts that have accrued prior to the effective date of the termination, any and all liabilities accrued prior to the effective date of the termination will survive, and Customer will provide SixFifty with a written certification signed by an authorized Customer representative certifying that all use of Products by Customer has been discontinued and that all Confidential Information of SixFifty (defined in Section 8.1 below) in Customer’s possession or control has been returned or destroyed.

Without limiting the foregoing, the Confidential Information of SixFifty includes all Service Documentation and Output, and the technical characteristics of the Online Service, and the Confidential Information of Customer includes all non-public information shared with SixFifty concerning Customer’s storage, system, and network architectures. However, “Confidential Information” does not include any information that (a) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (b) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (c) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (d) was independently developed by the Receiving Party.

The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information.

11.3 Independent Allocations of Risk. EACH PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS OF THIS AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES. THIS ALLOCATION IS REFLECTED IN THE PRICING OFFERED BY SIXFIFTY TO CUSTOMER AND IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 11 WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY IN THIS AGREEMENT.
12.1 Relationship. SixFifty will be and act as an independent contractor (and not as the agent or representative of Customer) in the performance of this Agreement.

A Change of Control shall be deemed to cause an assignment of this Agreement. “Change of Control” means a merger, acquisition, divestiture, sale of assets or equity, or similar transaction.
12.3 Export. Customer will comply with all applicable export and import laws, rules, and regulations in connection with Customer’s activities under this Agreement.

Except as otherwise provided herein, Customer will provide any notices required or permitted to be given in accordance with this Agreement in writing and sent by certified or registered mail, or overnight courier, return receipt requested, with the appropriate postage affixed, to SixFifty Technologies, LLC, 7050 Union Park Ave Suite 400A, UT 84047.

12.8 Waiver. The waiver by either Party of any breach of any provision of this Agreement does not waive any other breach. The failure of any Party to insist on strict performance of any covenant or obligation in accordance with this Agreement will not be a waiver of such Party’s right to demand strict compliance in the future, nor will the same be construed as a novation of this Agreement.
12.9 Severability. If any part of this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the remaining portions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. If any material limitation or restriction on the use of a Product under this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, Customer’s right to use Products will immediately terminate.
