GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  1. Products and Ordering. Licensee may purchase Products via either (i) a written order document executed by both parties referencing this Agreement and specifying the Products purchased by Licensee hereunder or (ii) a purchase order delivered by Licensee for Products, provided that such purchase order contains the requisite level of detail for the parties to identify the specific Products, quantities, and prices (in either case, an “Order”). In addition, any entity in which Licensee has the legal or practicable ability to procure compliance by the applicable entity with the terms and conditions of this Agreement (an “Affiliate”) may purchase Products via an Order. Any Products provided by Flexera on an evaluation basis or otherwise free of charge are provided pursuant to the “Free Software” and “Evaluation Software” terms located at https://www.flexera.com/legal/product-specific-terms.html.
  2. Invoicing and Payment.
    2.1. Invoicing. Unless otherwise agreed in an executed Order, Flexera will invoice Licensee as follows:
    2.1.1. for perpetual licenses to Products, fully in advance;
    2.1.2. for subscription-based Products, annually in advance; and/or
    2.1.3. for all other Professional Services and associated expenses, monthly in arrears.
    2.2. Payment. Licensee agrees to pay Flexera the fees indicated in each applicable Order. All payments are non-refundable (except as expressly set forth in this Agreement) and shall be made within thirty (30) days of Licensee’s receipt of the invoice for the applicable Order. All fees are pre-tax and Licensee shall be responsible for all taxes, withholdings, duties and levies arising from the order (excluding taxes based on the real property, personal property, or net income of Flexera). Any late payments will be subject to a service charge equal to 1% per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less. If Licensee is required to withhold and pay any withholding tax imposed at source on any amount payable to Flexera under this Agreement, then Licensee shall deliver to Flexera the original tax receipt or other proof of payment, and Licensee’s payment of the balance (after deducting any such withholding) will constitute payment in full of the amount owed by Licensee to Flexera and Licensee will assist Flexera in recovering any withholding tax from the relevant tax authority. In the event that Flexera is required by Licensee to use any invoicing portal or similar service in order to issue invoices, receive purchase orders, or otherwise contract with Licensee, then any fees incurred by Flexera for Flexera’s use of such portal or service shall be billed back to Licensee.
    2.3. Purchase Orders. If Licensee requires a separate purchase order to be provided to Flexera in order for Flexera to invoice Licensee, Licensee commits to providing a purchase order within three (3) business days of its receipt of license keys from Flexera. In the event Licensee fails to deliver a purchase order within such timeframe, Licensee’s signed Order, if there is one, will constitute Licensee’s approval for Flexera to invoice Licensee. For subscription based products with multi-year subscription terms, Licensee must provide a purchase order for either (i) the total payable for the entire subscription term, or (ii) one (1) year at a time, provided that the first purchase order must indicate that it is for the first year of a committed three (3) year term; regardless of the purchase order form selected, if Licensee licenses a Product for a multi-year subscription, the license is non-cancelable and Licensee shall be obligated to pay for the total value of the subscription term.
    2.4. Purchases through Resellers. In the event Licensee purchases Products via a reseller, the invoicing and payment terms agreed between Licensee and such reseller will apply in lieu of the terms set forth herein. If the reseller fails to pay the fees applicable to the Products delivered to Licensee, Licensee will be responsible to Flexera for payment of the fees due and not paid by the reseller.

  4. Software Representations and Warranties.
    4.1. Performance Warranty. Flexera represents and warrants to Licensee that for a period of ninety (90) days from initial delivery of the Software, the Software will operate in substantial conformity with the Documentation. Flexera does not warrant that Licensee’s use of the Software will be uninterrupted or error-free. All warranty claims must be submitted to Flexera in writing within the Warranty Period.

Flexera’s sole liability (and Licensee’s exclusive remedy) for any breach of this or any performance warranty, express or implied, will be, in Flexera’s sole discretion, to either (a) use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Licensee with an error-correction or work-around that corrects the reported non-conformity or (b) to replace the non-conforming Software with conforming Software. If Flexera determines such remedies to be impracticable within a reasonable period of time, Flexera may terminate the applicable Order and refund the fees paid for the non-conforming Software.
    4.2. Anti-Virus Warranty. Flexera represents and warrants to Licensee that it has used industry standard anti-virus software and processes to test the Software for viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful, malicious or destructive code and such tests have shown no such viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful, malicious or destructive code.
    4.3. No Disabling Devices Warranty. Flexera represents and warrants to Licensee that the Software does not include any functionality that (i) generates messages, data, or reports that are transmitted to Flexera without consent from Licensee or (ii) allows Flexera to remotely access the Software. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Software may include features that will limit use of the Software beyond the License Level or notifies Flexera of license activations.

  5. Third Party Software. The Software licensed hereunder includes Third Party Software (including open source software). A list of all Third Party Software included with the Software will be provided to Licensee upon written request.

Flexera will defend and indemnify Licensee from and against any claim asserted against Licensee and its employees, officers, board members, agents, representatives, and officials by a third party based upon an allegation that the Software infringes a patent, copyright, or trademark. If the Software is, or in Flexera’s opinion use of the Software is likely to be, enjoined due to the type of infringement specified above, or if required by settlement, Flexera may, in its sole discretion: (a) substitute for the Software substantially functionally similar programs; (b) procure for Licensee the right to continue using the Software; or if (a) and (b) are commercially impracticable, (c) terminate the Agreement and refund to Licensee (i) for perpetual licenses, the license fee(s) paid by Licensee as of the date of termination, reduced to reflect a five year straight-line depreciation from the applicable license purchase date, and (ii) for subscription licenses, any prepaid and unused fees as of the date of termination. The foregoing indemnification obligation of Flexera does not apply to the extent the infringement claim arises as a result of: (1) modification of the Software (except for setting configuration options provided in the Software) by or on behalf of Licensee; (2) the combination of the Software with other non-Flexera products or processes not specifically required in the Documentation; (3) Licensee’s unauthorized use of the Software or use of the Software in violation of this Agreement; (4) Licensee’s failure to implement an Update to the Software which would avoid the infringement after Flexera provides notice that implementing such Update would avoid the infringement; or (5) Third Party Software. THIS SECTION SETS FORTH FLEXERA’S AND ITS SUPPLIERS’ SOLE LIABILITY AND LICENSEE’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT, INCLUDING A BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY RELATED THERETO. The foregoing indemnity obligations are conditioned upon Licensee providing to Flexera (i) prompt written notice of any claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for Flexera to respond without prejudice); (ii) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, and settlement (if applicable) of such claim; and (iii) all reasonably necessary cooperation. Flexera will not agree to any settlement that admits fault or attributes liability or otherwise imposes any affirmative obligation of Licensee without first obtaining Licensee’s prior written consent.
