These Software-as-a-Service Terms of Service (“Terms”), along with a signed Order Form (or other similar ordering document signed by the parties) (“Order Form”) between BasisPM, LLC (“Basis”) and the customer named in the Order Form (“Customer”) form a binding agreement between Basis and Customer (the “Agreement”). The Agreement includes these Terms, each Order Form and any other document incorporated by reference into either these Terms or an Order Form. Certain capitalized terms used herein are defined in Section 12. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in these Terms are defined in an Order Form.
THESE TERMS GOVERN CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE SOFTWARE IDENTIFIED IN A SIGNED ORDER FORM (the “Software”) THAT IS MADE AVIALABLE AS A SERVICE (the “Services”).
CUSTOMER AGREES TO THESE TERMS, EITHER BY: (A) EXECUTING AN ORDER FORM THAT INCORPORATES THESE TERMS BY REFERENCE; OR (B) USING THE SERVICES. If Basis and Customer sign a written services agreement that specifically supersedes these Terms, then that written agreement, and not these Terms will govern Customer’s use of the Services.
1. SERVICES AND SUPPORT
1.1 Services. Subject to all of the terms of this Agreement, including Customer’s timely payment of Fees (as defined herein), Basis will make the Services available to Customer for use during the Subscription Period. Customer acknowledges that the Services are software-as-a-service and Customer shall have no right to receive any object code or source code for any Software relating to the Services. Basis may provide the Services using its own infrastructure or using a third party cloud computing services provider.
1.2 Availability. Basis will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for: (a) planned downtime (of which Basis will provide at least 8 hours electronic notice and which Basis will schedule, to the extent practicable, during the weekend hours), and (b) any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Basis’ reasonable control, including, but not limited to, an act of God, act of government, flood, fire, earthquake, civil unrest, act of terror, strike or other labor problem (other than one involving Basis’ employees), Internet service provider failure or delay, failure or delay of service from any third party cloud computing services provider, or denial of service attack.
1.3 Support. Basis shall provide reasonable general technical support ("Support") to allow Customer to report problems and to seek assistance in the use of the Services during Basis’ standard Support hours.
1.4 Modifications. Basis may, in its sole discretion, modify, enhance and/or expand the Services at no additional cost to Customer. Basis may also modify, enhance or expand the Services by providing additional features or functionality, which may, but are not required to be, added by Customer to this Agreement at additional cost. Such additional cost features and functionality may be added by mutual written agreement of the parties, such as an additional Order Form. Customer acknowledges that its purchase of Services hereunder are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features.
1.5 Consulting Services. Customer may purchase Consulting Services by entering into a statement of work (“SOW”) with Basis. Fees for these Consulting Services are in addition to your Subscription Fee. All Consulting Services are performed remotely, unless Basis and Customer otherwise agree. For Consulting Services performed on-site, Customer will reimburse Basis for its reasonable costs for all expenses incurred in connection with the Consulting Services. Any invoices or other requests for reimbursements will be due and payable within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice. If there are a specific number of hours included in the Consulting Services purchased, those hours will expire as indicated in the applicable SOW. If there is no expiration period indicated in the SOW, then it will be one hundred and eighty (180) days from the effective date of the SOW. Consulting Services may be provided pursuant to separate terms and conditions that may be referenced in, and form a part of, any applicable SOW. Basis may provide some or all elements of the Consulting Services through third party service providers. Consulting Services are non-cancellable and all fees for Consulting Services are non-refundable.
2. RESTRICTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
2.1 Services are subject to usage limits that are specified in the Order Forms. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order Form, Services may not be accessed and used for more than the number of Projects or Named Users (as defined in the applicable Order Form) specified in the applicable Order Form(s). If Customer exceeds any contractual usage limit, Basis may work with Customer to seek to reduce Customer’s usage so that it conforms to that limit. If, notwithstanding these efforts, Customer is unable or unwilling to abide by a contractual usage limit, Customer will execute an Order Form to bring it into compliance promptly upon request, and/or pay any invoice for excess usage in accordance with this Agreement. Subscriptions for additional Projects or Named Users may be purchased during Subscription Term by signing an additional Order Form and paying the additional fees for such additional Projects.

3.1 Any information disclosed by one party ("Disclosing Party") to the other party ("Recipient") in connection with this Agreement that is marked confidential or that due to its character and nature a reasonable person under like circumstances would treat as confidential (the "Confidential Information") will be protected and held in confidence by the Recipient. Confidential Information will be used only for the purposes of this Agreement. Recipient shall disclose Confidential Information only to the Recipient's employees, contractors, or business partners which are bound by confidentiality obligations no less stringent than these prior to any disclosure on a "need to know" basis. Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) is already known to the other party at the time of disclosure; (b) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act or failure of the Recipient; (c) is independently developed without benefit of the other party's Confidential Information; or (d) is received from a third party that is not under an obligation of confidentiality.
3.2 Recipient agrees to protect the Confidential Information at all times and in the same manner as it protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential material of similar kind, but in no event with less than a reasonable standard of care. A Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law, provided that the Recipient provides the Disclosing Party with notice as soon as reasonably practicable to allow the Disclosing Party an opportunity to respond to such requirement, and provided further that such disclosure does not relieve Recipient of its confidentiality obligations with respect to any other party.
3.3 Upon the request of Disclosing Party, the Recipient shall promptly destroy or return to the Disclosing Party all copies of the Confidential Information and any documents derived from it. This obligation to return or destroy materials or copies thereof does not extend to automatically generated computer back-up or archival copies generated in the ordinary course of Recipient's information systems procedures, provided that Recipient shall make no further use of Confidential Information contained in those copies. Except as to the confidentiality of trade secrets, these confidentiality restrictions and obligations will terminate two years after the expiration or termination of the Agreement.
3.4 Neither party will issue any public materials that refer to the other party, this Agreement, or the subscribed Services without the other party's prior written consent. However, Basis may identify Customer on its client list and may use Customer's name and logo as well as a mutually-agreed general description of the nature of the relationship on its website and in promotional materials, presentations, and proposals to current and prospective clients. Either party may identify the other party or disclose the existence of this Agreement to its attorneys, auditors and in connection with regulatory filings.

Customer agrees to pay any undisputed portion of the invoice in full when due and notify Basis in writing as to the nature and substance of any disputed portion. Inquiries should be directed to Basis’ customer support department.

However, the parties may agree in writing to renew a Subscription for longer periods and/or at other mutually agreed upon rates. For U.S. Government Customers, Services will not automatically renew.
