    5. Third Party Software. All computer programs, application programs, databases and related information and documentation that are part of any third party services or products provided as part of the User’s Access to the Hosted Programs (collectively, the “Third Party Software”) and all information and documentation that constitute the Third Party Software services are and will at all times remain the sole and exclusive property of the Third Party Software provider or the parties for whom the Third Party Software provider is acting as agent or licensee.
    6. Audit. Synkron shall have the right to monitor use of the Hosted Programs by User to verify compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
    1. Hosted Programs. Synkron will provide User with Access to the online Hosted Programs and will provide for the storage and retrieval of User Data in connection with use of the Hosted Programs. User is responsible for obtaining access to the Internet using appropriate software and hardware, including ensuring proper security of User’s systems and access to the Hosted Programs.
    2. Authorized Access. User will be assigned a username and password by Synkron to obtain Access to the Hosted Programs and Synkron Services. Access without an assigned username and password, or by utilizing another’s password, shall be considered unauthorized and shall terminate this license.
    3. User Obligations and Responsibilities. User is responsible and liable for all activity occurring under its accounts, whether or not such activities have been authorized by User, and shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with its use of the Hosted Programs, including those related to data privacy, international communications and the transmission of technical or personal data. User shall: (i) notify Synkron immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or user ID or any other known breach of security, including the loss of theft or any password or user ID; (ii) restrict access and use of the Hosted Programs by unauthorized users; and (iii) not impersonate another user or provide false identity information to gain access to or use the Hosted Programs.
    4. Synkron User Support Services. At Synkron’s discretion, a third party may provide all user support services delivered to User. In the event that a User elects to receive support services related to the Hosted Programs from Synkron by requesting such services, then Synkron agrees to provide support to the User or User’s representative in accordance with Synkron’s support policies then in effect, so long as User is currently entitled to use the Hosted Programs.
    5. Additional Data Services. In the event User requests, subject to Synkron’s availability, to perform other services with respect to User Data, including, but not limited to, reformatting or modifying the format of User Data, modify, develop or otherwise alter a User Data interface, or otherwise preparing and providing User with copies of User Data, User shall pay Synkron’s fees for such additional data services.
    6. User Account. In order to use the Hosted Programs and Synkron Services, and in order for the Synkron Services to operate properly, Users must supply Synkron with certain “Registration Data”, all of which must be accurate and updated as appropriate. Failure to properly maintain the Registration Data shall be a breach of this Agreement. User shall ensure that it can receive e-mail from Synkron, which may require User to add Synkron to a “trusted” sender list to avoid delays or having Synkron correspondences blocked from User’s inbox.
    7. Cooperation. Synkron’s ability to provide Synkron Services is dependent upon User’s cooperation and ability to perform its obligations. Should User fail to perform any obligation or approve any request from Synkron, Synkron shall be relieved from any liability resulting therefrom and any delivery dates shall be reset accordingly.
    1. User Data Warranty. User represents and warrants that it owns or has all necessary rights to use all User Data with the Hosted Programs, including the right to upload User Data to the Host Server in connection with its authorized use of the Hosted Programs. User warrants that the User Data and its use in connection with the Hosted Programs do not infringe the rights of any third party or violate any applicable laws. User shall be solely responsible for complying with all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws throughout the world, treaties and regulations related to the use and disclosure of data, data privacy, international communications and the transmission of technical or personal data. User will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Synkron from any claim, action, or proceeding in any forum (“Indemnified Data Warranty Claim”), to the extent such Indemnified Data Warranty Claim arises from or caused by any breach of this clause 4.1, or failure to comply with laws, treaties or regulations. User will pay any costs or damages awarded against Synkron that are attributable to such Indemnified Warranty claim.
    2. Data Security Obligations.
      1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the parties agree that all software used to access the Hosted Programs will support the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. User agrees to access the Hosted Programs and to store and retrieve data using third party programs, including specifically Internet “browser” programs, using SSL.
      2. Even though Synkron may provide usernames and passwords, and may restore access to a User who loses them, User is solely responsible for obtaining and for remembering usernames and passwords for all Users (the “Log-In Information”). User must keep all Log-In Information strictly confidential. Log-In Information may be used only by the assigned User. Each User is entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of that User’s username and password. Each User will be entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under the User’s account. Each User agrees to notify Synkron immediately of any unauthorized uses of the User’s account or any other breach of security. Synkron will not be liable for any loss that User may incur as a result of someone else using that User’s password or account, either with or without the User’s knowledge.
      3. Synkron does not guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from any User over the Internet including without limitation through the use of email. Access to the internet, if employed, is User’s and is User’s sole responsibility and the responsibility of any internet provider they select. Synkron does not accept any responsibility for failure of service due to internet facilities, including related telecommunications or equipment.
      4. In its sole discretion, Synkron may at any time require that User suspend the access of its employees or authorized representatives to the Hosted Programs and/or disable their Log-In Information. User agrees, when so required by Synkron, to remove such individuals promptly and suspend their use of the Hosted Programs and access to the Hosted Programs. Grounds for doing so are not limited to but may include, for example, legal or regulatory reasons, investigation of suspicious activities, or action by authorities, or if Synkron or User has reason to suspect that any such person is engaged in activities that may violate these Terms of Use, applicable laws, or other Synkron policies, or are otherwise deemed harmful to Synkron, User, their network or facilities, or other Users. Synkron shall not be liable to any User for suspension of services, regardless of the grounds.
      5. Synkron agrees to maintain the security of User Data using industry-standard data security protocols, and other methods reasonably deemed to be adequate for secure business data and to notify User in the event of a breach of security involving User Data. Synkron agrees to retain User data on a secure server and to maintain data recovery and data backup facilities in accordance with accepted industry practices.
    3. Ownership of User Data. User retains all ownership and intellectual property rights in and to User Data. User Data remains User’s and User, not Synkron, is responsible for it. User shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness and ownership of all User Data. Synkron is not responsible for inability to perform services due to improperly formatted or corrupt files, viruses on media provided by User, or incompatible backup media or software used by User. User warrants that storage or caching of User Data is not an infringement of any intellectual property rights or otherwise in violation of any applicable laws. User agrees that it will not store data on the Host Server that is subject to the rights of any third parties without first obtaining all required authorizations and rights in writing from such third parties. User may download its data at any time and for any reason during the subscription. For 90 days after expiration or termination of this Agreement, Synkron will allow You the ability to export Your data.
    4. Use of User Data. User hereby stipulates and agrees that Synkron may use and disclose, and may authorize its agents, affiliates, subcontractors (including any downstream third-party service provider) to use and disclose, except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, any and all data and information, including, but not limited to, protected health information and other information of User’s customers created or received by, disclosed, or otherwise made available to, Synkron or any agent, affiliate or subcontractor of Synkron in connection with this Agreement, or any other arrangement or agreement between Synkron and User. Without limitation, such uses and disclosures shall include:
      1. using data and information to provide data aggregation services as permitted by 45 CFR §164.504(e)(2)(i)(B); and
      2. using data and information to create information that is not individually identifiable health information under applicable federal law, and
      3. disclosure to any third party not otherwise prohibited by law. User warrants that it has obtained or will obtain such authorization from its Users as may be required under applicable law to permit the User and/or SYNKRON to use and disclose such information.
    5. Data Aggregation; License. To support the SYNKWISE software tools, calculators, benchmarking and other functionalities that require aggregated User Data, and to the extent needed to provide the Services to You and others, to protect You and the Services, and to improve the Services, User hereby grants to Synkron an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to collect, store, use and retain User Data.
    6. HIPPA: HIPAA Compliance. If User Data or User is subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), User agrees that it will appropriately safeguard Protected Health Information (defined in 45 CFR 160.103), and agrees that it is subject to, and shall comply with, the provisions of 45 CFR 164 Subpart E regarding use and disclosure of Protected Health Information.
    7. Privacy. Synkron will comply with the relevant privacy policies applicable to the Synkron Services ordered in the Service Agreements, available at: https://www.synkwise.com/privacy-policy/. These policies may change from time to time, so You should regularly check the policies in place.
    1. Defined. The parties understand and agree that in the performance of this Agreement each party may have access to private or confidential information of the other party (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information shall include the Hosted Programs, the terms and pricing under this Agreement, and all information clearly identified as confidential at the time of disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Synkron’s Confidential Information includes all information a User obtains by accessing the Hosted Programs or by using the Synkron Services. User Data is considered Confidential Information unless and until it is stripped of all identification markers that would allow the data to be associated with a specific facility or User. Data that has been stripped of information that would identify it as a particular User’s shall remain available for use by Synkron in furthering development and refinement of its intellectual property, data aggregation and for marketing purposes as provided in this Agreement.
    2. Exceptions. A party’s Confidential Information shall not include information that:
      1. is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the other party;
      2. was in the other party’s lawful possession prior to the disclosure and had not been obtained by the other party either directly or indirectly from the disclosing party;
      3. is lawfully disclosed to the other party by a third party without restriction on disclosure; or
      4. is independently developed by the other party as evidenced by contemporaneous written documentation.
    3. Handling. Except as may otherwise be required by law, during the term of, and for a period of 5 years after the expiration or termination of this Agreement, neither party shall disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to any person other than those authorized with a need-to-know or use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than for the purpose for which it is intended. Each party will use at least the same effort used to protect its own Confidential Information (but not less than reasonable care) to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of the other party’s Confidential Information.
    4. Required Disclosure. Nothing shall prevent either party from disclosing the other’s Confidential Information as required by law, including without limitation a valid subpoena from a federal or state governmental entity. If either party is requested or required for the purposes of legal, administrative, or arbitration to disclose any Confidential Information, the party receiving such disclosure request will provide the other party with prompt written notice of any such request or requirement, unless prohibited by law, so that such party may seek an appropriate protective order or other relief.
    1. General. The Hosted Programs are the copyrighted works of Synkron or its licensors. In addition, except as expressly provided under this Agreement, Synkron does not grant User a license or any other rights of any type under patents, know-how, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, or other intellectual property, including but not limited to any name, trade dress, logo, or such. The Hosted Programs, graphics, images, content, compilation, digital conversion, databases, and all information provided in connection with the Hosted Programs and Synkron Services and other matters related to Synkron (other than User Data) and any modifications, updates, copies, customizations, derivative works, augmentations, or translations thereto, and any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by User or any other party relating to the Hosted Programs or Synkron Service are subject to all applicable patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other laws protecting the proprietary rights of Synkron and its licensors. Your rights to access the Synkron Services and to make use of the Hosted Programs are licensed only, not sold, and all content on Synkron and copies of such content – except for User Data and as otherwise provided in this Agreement – remain in the sole possession and ownership of Synkron and its licensors.
    2. Trademarks. Synkron Services, SYNKWISE, and the symbols used to identify Synkron are trademarks of Synkron. All third party trademarks, service marks, trade names or other identifying information used by Synkron remain the sole and exclusive property of the applicable third parties. Except for linking to Synkron web sites, User may not use any Synkron logo or trademark, whether or not such mark(s) are registered, without prior written approval from Synkron. This includes use on printed materials of any kind as well as electronic mediums such as internet web pages or email. Furthermore, the use of the Synkron name (or any derivative thereof) in User’s URL, business name, or the names of any add- on products or services User may be offering independent of Synkron is prohibited. Additionally, using the Synkron name in targeted keyword advertising campaigns on search engines is also prohibited.
    3. Copyright. The SYNKWISE Website and all content provided by Synkron, unless otherwise stated, are the property of Synkron. All rights are reserved. Any copying, transmission or other publication or other unauthorized use of the contents of this Website is strictly prohibited.
    1. Term. The initial term of this Agreement shall be twelve months commencing on the Effective Date and ending on the last day of the twelfth month thereafter. Upon the expiration of the initial term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive twelve-month terms unless either party gives the other party written notice of its intent not to renew at least sixty days prior to the renewal date, or as otherwise terminated as provided below in section 7.2.
    2. Termination. Synkron may terminate this Agreement and declare all amounts then due hereunder for the remaining term, immediately due and payable, in the event of any of the following:
      1. failure of User to pay any fee or other payment hereunder when due, which failure continues for ten days after written notice to User of such default
      2. any breach by User of any other covenant, warranty, or other term hereunder, which breach continues for thirty days after written notice to User thereof; or
      3. the commencement of any bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings for User.
    3. Default. In the event User is in default hereunder, Synkron shall not be required to provide User with any services in connection with the System. Upon termination of this Agreement, the license to use the System shall terminate, and User and its customers shall no longer have access to the System website. Synkron and User agree that the nature of the services provided for herein may now or hereafter necessitate the storage of data and other information relating to the User customers. To the extent Synkron is required to convert or store any data or information of User customers upon termination, User agrees to reimburse Synkron for all costs and expenses incurred in connection to any such conversion or storage.
    1. Synkron Limited Warranty of No Infringement. Synkron warrants that the Hosted Program(s), when used within the scope of this Agreement, does not infringe any United States patent, copyright, or trade secret. Synkron will defend at its expense any action brought against User to the extent based on a claim that the Hosted Program, when used within the scope of this Agreement, infringes a U.S. patent, copyright, or trade secret. Synkron will pay any costs and damages finally awarded against You in such action that are attributable to such claim, if You promptly notify Synkron in writing of the claim, allow Synkron to control the defense, provide Synkron with the information and assistance necessary for the defense and/or settlement of the claim, and do not agree to any settlement without Synkron’s prior written consent. Should the Hosted Program become, or in Synkron’s opinion be likely to become, the subject of any claim of infringement, Synkron may at its option (i) procure for User the right to continue using the Hosted Program, (ii) replace or modify the Hosted Program to make it non-infringing, or, if (i) and (ii) are not commercially reasonable, (iii) terminate the license granted hereunder and refund the amounts paid for such license. Synkron will have no liability for any claim of infringement based upon (i) use of other than the latest unmodified release of the Hosted Program available to You if such infringement would have been avoided by the use of such release and You were notified that use of the release would avoid such infringement, (ii) use or combination of the Hosted Programs with other programs or data if such infringement would not have occurred without such use or combination, or (iii) use of the Hosted Programs after receiving notice from a third party or Synkron that the Hosted Programs infringe a patent, copyright or trade secret right of a third party unless prompt written notice thereof is given to Synkron. The forgoing states the exclusive remedy of User and Synkron’s entire liability with respect to infringement of patents, copyrights, trade secrets or other proprietary rights.
    2. Hosted Program Warranty. Synkron warrants that the Hosted Programs will materially perform in accordance with the documentation so long as (1) the User has a current, paid-up right to use the Hosted Programs; and (2) User’s access to the Host Server will meet the minimum criteria set forth in Synkron’s documentation.
    3. Data Warranty. Synkron represents and warrants that all data acquired from User, regardless of whether such data is maintained, stored or transmitted directly or indirectly, such as through a third-party database, will be protected using industry standards and security safeguards at the same or better level than Synkron protects its own confidential data. In the event of any actual or potential breach of any medium pursuant to which User’s data is stored for the provision of Synkron’s services hereunder, Synkron shall notify User via email to the address given in the Registration Data within 24 hours from Synkron’s actual knowledge of such actual or potential breach.
    4. Disclaimers.
      1. User acknowledges and agrees that it has sole responsibility to determine the accuracy of the data and reports prior to use.
      3. Hosted programs or Synkron services may be subject to limitations, delays, and other problems inherent in the use of the internet and electronic communications. Synkron is not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or other damage resulting from such problems, including, without limitation, loss of data.
      4. Exclusive remedies. For any breach of the warranties contained in sections 8.2 (hosted program warranty), 8.3 (Synkron services warranty), and 8.4 (data warranty) user’s exclusive remedy, and Synkron’s entire liability, shall be the correction of the hosted program errors or re-performance of the Synkron services. User shall notify Synkron within 30 days of discovery of any error or from performance of the applicable Synkron service or such claim shall be deemed waived by user.
    5. Indemnification.
      1. User assumes liability for and hereby agrees to indemnify and hold Synkron harmless for all claims, actions, losses, damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, obligations, liabilities, and liens arising out of any act or omissions of User, its employees, agents, or customers.
      2. User hereby releases and discharges Synkron from and against any and all claims, actions, losses, damages, obligations, and liabilities, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, now existing or hereafter arising, that arise out of or are related to the Synkron System, regardless of whether such claims, actions, losses, damages, obligations, or liabilities are caused or alleged to be caused by the sole or concurrent negligence of Synkron, its employees or agents, unless occasioned solely by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Synkron. The provisions of Section 8.5 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
    6. Limitation of Liability.
      1. In no event shall either Synkron be liable for any indirect, punitive, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind (including without limitation loss of data, revenue, profits, or business reputation) arising out of or related to the Hosted Programs or Synkron Services, even if the party from whom damages are being sought has been previously advised of the possibility of such damages.
      2. In no event shall Synkron’s aggregate liability exceed the amounts actually paid by user in the 3-month period immediately preceding the event giving rise to the claim.
    1. Force Majeure. Synkron shall not be responsible for any delays, errors, failures to perform, interruptions or disruptions in the Hosted Programs or Synkron Services for the time and to the extent such failure or delay is due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, any act of God, labor dispute or disturbance, material shortage or rationing, fire, storm, tornado, tidal wave, vandalism, riot, explosion, power outage earthquake, flood, civil disturbance, sabotage, cyber-attack including denial of service attack, act of war, act of terrorism, governmental action or regulation.
    2. Independent Contractors. The relationship between Synkron and User is that of independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed or deemed to create any other relationship, including that of joint venture, partnership, or in an employment or agency relationship.
    3. Construction. In the event of a dispute hereunder, this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with its fair meaning and shall not be interpreted for or against any party hereto on the ground that such party drafted or caused to be drafted this Agreement or any part hereof, nor shall any presumption or burden of proof or persuasion be implied by virtue of the fact that this Agreement may have been prepared by or at the request of a particular party or its counsel. Article and Section headings are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation of this Agreement.
    4. Notice. Any notice or other document to be given or to be served upon Synkron in connection with this Agreement shall be in writing to Synkron. All such Notices will be deemed effective upon delivery or three days after mailing by certified mail. Any notice or other document to be given or to be served upon User shall be sent to User’s last known address. Any party may, at any time by giving 5 days prior written notice to the other party, designate any other address in substitution of the address stated above to which such notice will be given.
    5. Choice of Law; Jurisdiction; Service of Process. The parties agree that this Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington, without regard to the conflicts of law provisions thereof. The parties consent to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Clark County, Washington, in any action arising out of or relating to this Agreement and waive any other venue to which either party might be entitled.
    6. Export Controls and Restricted Rights. This Agreement is expressly made subject to any laws, regulations, orders, or other restrictions on the export from the United States of America of the Synkron Services, Hosted Programs, content, Synkron intellectual property or information about such Synkron Services, Hosted Programs, which may be imposed from time to time by the government of the United States of America. User shall not export the service including, without limitation, content, Synkron intellectual property or confidential information, and information about the Synkron Services and Hosted Programs without the written consent of Synkron and compliance with such laws, regulations, orders, or other restrictions. The Hosted Programs and accompanying documentation are commercial computer software and documentation developed exclusively at private expense and in all respects are proprietary data belonging to Synkron. If the Hosted Programs and accompanying documentation are used under the terms of a DoD or civilian agency contract, use, reproduction and disclosure of such software and documentation by the Government is subject to the restrictions set forth in this Agreement in accordance with 48 C.F.R. 227.7202 or 48 C.F.R. 12.212, respectively.
    7. Nonsolicitation. User agrees during the term of this Agreement, and for 12 months thereafter, not to solicit for hire or hire as a consultant, employee, or otherwise any current or former employee of Synkron who were involved with the performance of this Agreement.
    8. Assignment. User may not assign this Agreement or any right or obligation hereunder, directly, indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, without Synkron’s prior written consent, and any attempt to do so will be void and of no force or effect. If the Assignment is caused by a sale, merger, or other transfer of substantially all User’s assets, then Synkron’s consent is deemed. This Agreement is freely assignable and/or transferable by Synkron without the consent of User. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the permitted successors and assigns of each party.
    9. Severability. Each provision of this Agreement is intended to be severable from each other provision, and the validity or illegality of any portion hereof shall not affect the validity or legality of the remainder hereof.
    10. No Waiver. No failure on the part of Synkron to exercise and no delay in exercising any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof or modify the terms of this Agreement. The exercise of any one remedy shall not be deemed to waive or preclude the exercise of any other remedy.
    11. Survival. The provisions of 4 (User Data), 5 (Confidentiality), 6 (Intellectual Property), 10 (Limitation of Liability) and 11 (Miscellaneous), and any payment obligations of either party shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason. All other rights and obligations of the parties shall cease upon termination of this Agreement.
    12. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the complete agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or representations, written or oral, concerning the subject matter of this Agreement. Synkron may modify the terms of this Agreement at any time by posting new terms to its web site. User may notify Synkron in writing within thirty days of such change that User does not wish to accept the new terms. In the absence of such written non-acceptance notification with the thirty-day period, User confirms acceptance of the new terms by continuing to use the Hosted Programs and/or Synkron Services. If User does not accept the new terms by notifying Synkron within the thirty (30) day period, then User may continue to use the Hosted Programs and Synkron Services under User’s existing terms until the end of User’s then current term, at which time User’s Agreement will not automatically renew, but will instead terminate.
