Neither this Agreement nor the AUP requires that MPOWR take any action against Customer or any Authorized User or other third party for violating the AUP, this Section 5.1, or this Agreement, but MPOWR is free to take any such action it sees fit.
5.2 Unauthorized Access. Customer shall take reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized access to the System, including without limitation by protecting its passwords and other log-in information.

5.5 Authorized Resellers. Customer may authorize an MPOWR-approved Authorized Reseller to place MPOWR orders on Customer’s behalf and to manage Customer’s System as a service to Customer. Customer’s use of Authorized Resellers is subject to the following provisions:
(a) Authorized Resellers are not agents of MPOWR and are not authorized to enter into any agreements with Customer on behalf of MPOWR or make any representations or warranties about the System.
(b) If Customer works with an Authorized Reseller to create orders or administer the System on Customer’s behalf, that Authorized Reseller will have administrative privileges, access to Customer Data, and control over Authorized User accounts. Customer consents to MPOWR providing its Authorized Reseller with Customer Data and administrative rights for purposes of provisioning, administering and supporting (as applicable) the System. Customer shall be deemed to have appointed its Authorized Reseller as its agent for purposes of providing and receiving notices and other communications to and from MPOWR.
(c) Customer and its Authorized Reseller will directly determine how Authorized Reseller should collect, store, receive, transit and process Customer Data and information pertaining to Authorized Users. Customer and each Authorized User are responsible for understanding Authorized Reseller’s privacy and security practices and for negotiating appropriate terms and conditions with respect to such privacy and security practices. An Authorized Reseller’s privacy and security practices may differ from those of MPOWR.
(d) If MPOWR or Customer terminates an Authorized Reseller’s right to place MPOWR orders or administer the System, Customer must select a different Authorized Reseller or work directly with MPOWR. Customer may terminate an Authorized Reseller’s administrative privileges at any time by notifying MPOWR in writing as provided in Section 13.2 below.
6. IP & FEEDBACK.
6.1 IP Rights in the System. MPOWR retains all right, title, and interest in and to the System, including without limitation all software used to provide the System and all graphics, user interfaces, logos, and trademarks reproduced through the System. This Agreement does not grant Customer any intellectual property license or rights in or to the System or any of its components, except to the limited extent that this Agreement specifically sets forth Customer license rights to the Documentation. Customer recognizes that the System and its components are protected by copyright and other laws.
6.2 Feedback. MPOWR has not agreed to and does not agree to treat as confidential any Feedback (as defined below) that Customer or Authorized Users provide to MPOWR, and nothing in this Agreement or in the parties’ dealings arising out of or related to this Agreement will restrict MPOWR’s right to use, profit from, disclose, publish, keep secret, or otherwise exploit Feedback, without compensating or crediting Customer or the Authorized User in question. Feedback will not be considered confidential information under any agreements or provisions relating to non-disclosure obligations. In consideration for the potential to receive improved features and functionality within the System, Customer and each Authorized User hereby irrevocably transfers, assigns, and conveys to MPOWR all Feedback provided with respect to the System. (“Feedback” refers to any suggestion or idea for improving or otherwise modifying any of MPOWR’s products or services.)
6.3 Public Announcements. Customer grants MPOWR a nonexclusive and revokable license to use Customer’s name, logo, and other descriptive information in its electronic, print, and/or online promotional and marketing efforts for the purpose of accurately listing MPOWR’s current or former customers. Customer may revoke this license at any time and for any reason by giving MPOWR written notice. Upon receiving Customer’s written notice of revocation, MPOWR will cease further use of Customer’s name, logo, and other descriptive information in its electronic, print, and/or online promotional and marketing efforts; provided, however, that MPOWR may continue using its stock of existing printed marketing materials until its supply of such materials is depleted. Except as provided in this Section, neither party shall issue or release any announcement, statement, press release, or other publicity or marketing materials relating to this Agreement or, unless expressly permitted under this Agreement, otherwise use the other party’s trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, or other indicia of source, association, or sponsorship, in each case, without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.
7. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. “Confidential Information” refers to the following items one party (“Disclosing Party”) discloses to the other party (“Receiving Party”): (a) with respect to Customer, any Customer Data; and (b) with respect to MPOWR, the Documentation, whether or not marked or designated confidential, and any other nonpublic, sensitive information relating to the System or MPOWR’s business and pricing models.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Party shall protect Confidential Information with the same degree of care it uses to protect its own confidential information of similar nature and importance, but with no less than reasonable care. The Receiving Party shall promptly notify the Disclosing Party of any misuse or misappropriation of Confidential Information that comes to its attention. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information as required by applicable law or by proper legal or governmental authority. The Receiving Party shall give the Disclosing Party prompt notice of any such legal or governmental demand and reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party in any effort to seek a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure, at the Disclosing Party’s expense.
7.2 Injunction. The Receiving Party agrees that breach of this Article 7 would cause the Disclosing Party irreparable injury, for which monetary damages would not provide adequate compensation, and that in addition to any other remedy, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach, without proving actual damage or posting a bond or other security.
7.3 Termination & Return. With respect to each item of Confidential Information, the obligations of Section 7.1 above (Nondisclosure) will terminate 5 years after the date of disclosure; provided that such obligations related to Confidential Information constituting the Receiving Party’s trade secrets will continue so long as such information remains subject to trade secret protection pursuant to applicable law. Upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party shall return all copies of Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party or certify, in writing, the destruction thereof.
7.4 Retention of Rights. This Agreement does not transfer ownership of Confidential Information or grant a license thereto. Each Party will retain all right, title, and interest in and to all of its Confidential Information.
7.5 Exception & Immunity. Pursuant to the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, 18 USC Section 1833(b) (the “DTSA”), each Party is on notice and acknowledges that, notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement:

(b) USE OF TRADE SECRET INFORMATION IN ANTI-RETALIATION LAWSUIT.

11. TERM & TERMINATION.
11.1 Term. The term of this Agreement (the “Term”) will commence on the date that a new Order is created on behalf of the Customer and shall continue until terminated pursuant to Section 11.2 or 11.3. With respect to each Authorized User, the Term of this Agreement shall continue for such time that he or she has access to an account associated with the Customer.
11.2 Termination Without Cause. Customer’s initial Term will continue for the period selected during the Order process, or a different period selected by Customer within Customer’s account, and shall automatically renew for an equivalent period unless either party notifies the other party prior to the expiration of the then-current Term of its intent to not renew. Customer will provide any notice of non-renewal through the means we designate, which may include account settings in the System or contacting our support team. Cancelling your Subscription means that you will not be charged for the next billing cycle, but you will not receive any refunds or credits for amounts that have already been charged
11.3 Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement immediately for the other’s material breach of these Terms of Service. Without limiting MPOWR’s other rights and remedies, MPOWR may suspend or terminate an Authorized User’s access to the System at any time, without advanced notice, if MPOWR reasonably concludes such Authorized User has conducted itself in a way that is not consistent with the requirements of the AUP or the other requirements of this Agreement or in a way that subjects MPOWR to potential liability.
11.4 Effects of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, Customer and its Authorized Users shall cease all use of the System and delete, destroy, or return all copies of the Documentation in its possession or control. The following provisions will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement: (a) any obligation of Customer to pay fees incurred before termination; and (b) the rights and licenses granted to MPOWR in Sections 2.2 and 4.3, all representations and warranties, Section 6 (IP & Feedback), Section 7 (Confidential Information), Section 8 (No Representations or Warranties), Section 9 (Indemnification), Section 10 (Limitation of Liability), and any other provision of this Agreement that must survive to fulfill its essential purpose.
12. DATA RETENTION AND DELETION. During the Term of this Agreement, and upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, the parties agree that Customer Data will be managed as set forth below.
12.1 Access During Term. During the Term, Customer may access, extract, export, or delete any Customer Data stored in the System using the controls made available to Authorized Users within the System. This right is subject to MPOWR’s right to terminate or suspend access to Customer’s account as provided in this Agreement. This right is also subject to the other obligations and limitations set forth in this Agreement, including without limitation the provisions of Sections 8 and 10 above, together with the exclusive remedy provisions of any Service Level Agreement that may be incorporated herein.
12.2 Export Prior to Termination. If Customer terminates this Agreement for any reason, including by cancelling its subscription as provided under Sections 11.2 or 11.3 above, Customer agrees to first export any Customer Data it wishes to retain prior to terminating this Agreement or allowing its subscription to expire.
12.3 Export After Termination. Subject to the provisions of Sections 8 and 10 above, MPOWR will use commercially reasonable efforts to retain Customer Data for up to thirty (30) days after any termination of this Agreement (the “Data Retention Period”). If Customer submits a written request to MPOWR not later than forty-eight (48) hours prior to the expiration of the Data Retention Period, MPOWR will make available to Customer for download the then most current version of Customer Data maintained by MPOWR in a commercially reasonable format selected by MPOWR in MPOWR’s sole discretion. Customer’s rights and MPOWR’s obligations under this Section 12.3 are subject to Customer having paid all amounts due to MPOWR for any agreements or services provided by MPOWR to Customer. Additionally, MPOWR may charge Customer a fee based on time and materials incurred for MPOWR’s services to collect and make available the Customer Data for download.
13.1 Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors and shall so represent themselves in all regards. Neither party is the agent of the other, and neither may make commitments on the other’s behalf.

Customer may send notices pursuant to this Agreement to MPOWR, Inc. Attn: Office of Legal Counsel, 303 N. Main Street, Ste 800, Rockford, IL 61101, and such notices will be deemed received 72 hours after they are sent.
13.3 Force Majeure. No delay, failure, or default, other than a failure to pay fees when due, will constitute a breach of this Agreement to the extent caused by acts of war, terrorism, hurricanes, earthquakes, other acts of God or of nature, strikes or other labor disputes, riots or other acts of civil disorder, embargoes, or other causes beyond the performing party’s reasonable control.
13.4 Assignment & Successors. Customer may not assign this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations hereunder without MPOWR’s express written consent. Except to the extent forbidden in this Section 13.4, this Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties’ respective successors and assigns. MPOWR may transfer or assign all or any part of its rights under this Agreement and will have the right to delegate or use third-party contractors to fulfill its duties and obligations under this Agreement and in connection with the System.
13.5 Severability. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the parties hereby waive any provision of law that would render any clause of this Agreement invalid or otherwise unenforceable in any respect. In the event that a provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, such provision will be interpreted to fulfill its intended purpose to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
13.6 No Waiver. Neither party will be deemed to have waived any of its rights under this Agreement by lapse of time or by any statement or representation other than by an authorized representative in an explicit written waiver. No waiver of a breach of this Agreement will constitute a waiver of any other breach of this Agreement.
13.7 Choice of Law & Jurisdiction: This Agreement will be governed solely by the internal laws of the State of Illinois, including without limitation applicable federal law, without reference to: (a) any conflicts of law principle that would apply the substantive laws of another jurisdiction to the parties’ rights or duties; (b) the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods; or (c) other international laws. The parties consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts of Rockford, Illinois. This Section 13.7 governs all claims arising out of or related to this Agreement, including without limitation tort claims.
13.9 Technology Export. Customer shall not: (a) permit any third party to access or use the System in violation of any U.S. law or regulation; or (b) export any software provided by MPOWR or otherwise remove it from the United States except in compliance with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer shall not permit any third party to access or use the System in, or export such software to, a country subject to a United States embargo or sanctions (a current list of such countries and territories is available from the U.S. Department of the Treasury).
13.10 Entire Agreement. This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement of the parties and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous writings, negotiations, and discussions with respect to its subject matter. Neither party has relied upon any such prior or contemporaneous communications.
13.11 Execution in Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts. Each counterpart will be an original, but all such counterparts will constitute a single instrument.
