3.3 Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN THIS SECTION, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE APPLICATION, THE SOLUTION, AND ALL RELATED COMPONENTS AND INFORMATION ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, AND BUILDERTREND AND ITS AFFILIATES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, PERFORMANCE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT NOR ARE THERE ANY WARRANTIES CREATED BY COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR TRADE USAGE AND BUILDERTREND DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOLUTION OR THE APPLICATION WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S NEEDS. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT BUILDERTREND DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE APPLICATION OR THE SOLUTION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE. BUILDERTREND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO DELAYS, DELIVERY FAILURES, INTERCEPTION, ALTERATION, OR OTHER DAMAGE RESULTING FROM MATTERS OUTSIDE OF ITS CONTROL, INCLUDING PROBLEMS INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET, MOBILE, AND PERSONAL COMPUTING DEVICES, TRANSMISSION OF ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS OVER THE INTERNET OR OTHER NETWORKS, AND THIRD-PARTY HOSTING SERVICE PROVIDERS. THE FOREGOING EXCLUSIONS AND DISCLAIMERS ARE AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS AGREEMENT AND FORMED THE BASIS FOR DETERMINING THE PRICE CHARGED FOR THE SERVICE AND THE FEES CHARGED FOR THE SOLUTION. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF AN IMPLIED WARRANTY, SO THIS DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. Buildertrend does not warrant that an Application or the Solution will be compatible with all devices. If an Application or the Solution is accessed through a mobile device, the relevant wireless service carrier may charge applicable data rates and related fees.  Customer acknowledges that the Solution may be unavailable from time to time during planned or emergency downtime.

3.4 Device and Wireless Carrier Disclaimers. While Buildertrend attempts to provide the Solution and Application features to all users, use of an Application and the Solution may be limited for some or all users due to conditions outside of Buildertrend’s control. As a result, not all advertised features may be available at all times. Some of these conditions include, but are not limited to, the following: an individual’s mobile device or their wireless carrier may limit the features available. Data or messaging plans may limit certain use of the Service. An individual’s wireless voice and/or data signal may make access to the Application or Solution of its features intermittent or unavailable. The Application and its features may not be available in some geographic locations. Buildertrend is not liable, and expressly disclaims any representations or warranties, regarding access to any Application or its Services or features through a particular wireless carrier, network, or plan, on a particular device, or in a particular location. Buildertrend does not guarantee that the Solution will always be accessible or available. Customer and its Authorized Users and Registered Clients are each solely responsible for any and all costs each party incurs to access an Application through their own mobile device.

4. Fees and Payment

4.1 Subscription Fees. Customer’s Subscription Fees are set forth in the applicable Order Form delivered to Customer by Buildertrend. All Subscription Fees are subject to change upon notice. Customer shall pay all fees when due and is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to Buildertrend. If such fees are paid via credit card or other electronic means, Customer authorizes Buildertrend to charge such fees using any Customer’s available payment methods on file. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly provided for herein. The number of Authorized Users, or Time-Clock Users for those Customers on the user based pricing package, purchased under a Subscription cannot be decreased during the applicable Subscription Term. Buildertrend reserves the right to suspend Customer’s account, in addition to all of its other available rights and remedies, in the event that Customer’s account becomes overdue. Suspension shall not relieve Customer’s obligation to pay all amounts due. If Customer believes any charged Subscription Fees are unauthorized, Customer must notify us of the unauthorized charge within sixty (60) days of the date of the Order Form containing that charge. If Customer does not notify us within sixty (60) days of the date of the Order Form containing that charge, the charged Subscription Fees will be considered entirely correct and Customer may not hold us responsible.

4.2 AUTO-RENEWAL. CUSTOMER AGREES THAT ITS SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR THE SAME SUBSCRIPTION TERM AFTER THE INITIAL SUBSCRIPTION TERM ENDS (THE “RENEWAL DATE”) AT THE THEN-CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION FEE. IF CUSTOMER HAS AN ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION TERM, BUILDERTREND WILL ENDEAVOR TO NOTIFY CUSTOMER BY EMAIL AT LEAST THIRTY (30) DAYS PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE SUBSCRIPTION TERM TO INQUIRE WHETHER CUSTOMER WOULD LIKE TO RENEW FOR AN ANNUAL OR MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION TERM. CUSTOMER AUTHORIZES BUILDERTREND TO AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE CUSTOMER FOR THE APPLICABLE FEES ON OR AFTER THE RENEWAL DATE UNLESS THE SUBSCRIPTION HAS BEEN TERMINATED OR CANCELLED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS AGREEMENT. IF CUSTOMER WISHES TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF AUTHORIZED USERS, OR TIME-CLOCK USERS FOR THOSE CUSTOMERS ON THE USER BASED PRICING PACKAGE, IN ITS SUBSCRIPTION, IT MUST DO SO PRIOR TO THE RENEWAL DATE. CUSTOMER MUST CANCEL ITS SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE RENEWAL DATE IN ORDER TO AVOID BEING CHARGED THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION FEE FOR THE RELEVANT SUBSCRIPTION TERM ON THE RENEWAL DATE. IF CUSTOMER WOULD LIKE TO CANCEL ITS SUBSCRIPTION, PLEASE SEE THE CANCELLATION PROCESS HEREIN.

4.3 CANCELLATION. CUSTOMER MUST CANCEL ITS SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE RENEWAL DATE IN ORDER TO AVOID BEING CHARGED THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION FEE FOR THE RELEVANT SUBSCRIPTION TERM ON THE RENEWAL DATE. IF CUSTOMER ATTEMPTS TO CANCEL ITS SUBSCRIPTION DURING THE SUBSCRIPTION TERM, CUSTOMER WILL NOT BE ISSUED A REFUND FOR THE MOST RECENT SUBSCRIPTION FEE OR ANY PREVIOUSLY CHARGED FEES AND THE SUBSCRIPTION WILL TERMINATE ON THE NEXT APPLICABLE RENEWAL DATE. TO INITIATE A CANCELLATION, CUSTOMER OR AN ADMINISTRATOR ON CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT NEEDS TO PROVIDE WRITTEN NOTIFICATION BY EMAILING CUSTOMER’S CUSTOMER SUCCESS REPRESENTATIVE OR SUPPORT@BUILDERTREND.COM. REQUESTS FROM ANYONE OTHER THAN THE CUSTOMER OR ADMINISTRATOR WILL NOT BE RECOGNIZED. A CANCELLATION IS NOT EFFECTIVE UNTIL THE CANCELLATION IS CONFIRMED WITH A BUILDERTREND REPRESENTATIVE VIA EMAIL.

4.4 Calculation. Subscription fees are based on annual or monthly periods (or pro rata portions thereof, calculated on a daily basis) that begin on the Subscription start date and each annual or monthly anniversary thereafter. Where applicable, Customer shall purchase a Subscription to the Service for each Authorized User and Time-Clock User for those Customers on the user based pricing package and the initial number of Authorized Users and Time-Clock Users for those Customers on the user based pricing package, as reflected in the applicable Order Form. Where applicable, Customer may add Authorized Users and Time-Clock Users for those Customers on the user based pricing package to its Subscription at any time on written notice to Buildertrend (email notice is acceptable). If Customer has an annual Subscription Term, the fees for additional Authorized Users and Time-Clock Users for those Customers on the user based pricing package will be calculated at the then-current fee multiplied by the months remaining in the Customer’s Subscription Term. Buildertrend reserves the right to calculate the total number of Authorized Users and Time-Clock Users for those Customers on the user based pricing package periodically and, if the number of Authorized Users, or Time-Clock Users for those Customers on the user based pricing package exceeds Customer’s current Subscription, then Buildertrend reserves the right to invoice Customer for the applicable number of users for the remaining period in Customer’s Subscription Term so that all Authorized User Subscription Terms coincide and are co-terminus. Buildertrend reserves the right to revise fee rates and/or the billable amount structure for the Service at any time. Buildertrend may charge Customer the then-current pricing for the applicable Subscription if the number of Authorized Users or Time-Clock Users for Customers on the user based pricing package is modified, if Customer changes its Subscription plan, and/or on the next Renewal Date.

4.5 QuickBooks Risk-Free Trial. Customer may be eligible for a risk-free trial through the QuickBooks program as described in the applicable Order Form. Beginning on the Effective Date, Customer will be charged all applicable Subscription Fees during the applicable risk-free period using the Customer’s available payment methods on file. To receive a refund of such Subscription Fees charged during the risk-free period, Customer must cancel the Subscription (pursuant to Section 4.3 above) prior to the expiration of the risk-free period.

4.6 Money Back Guarantee. Customer may be eligible for a money back guarantee as described in the applicable Order Form. Beginning on the Effective Date, Customer will be charged all applicable Subscription Fees during the applicable money back guarantee period using the Customer’s available payment methods on file. To receive a refund of such Subscription Fees charged during the money back guarantee period, Customer must cancel the Subscription (pursuant to Section 4.3 above) prior to the expiration of the money back guarantee period.

4.7 Taxes. Any fees charged to Customer are exclusive of taxes. Except for those taxes based on Buildertrend’s net income, Customer shall be responsible for all applicable taxes in connection with this Agreement including, but not limited to, sales, use, excise, value-added, goods and services, consumption, and other similar taxes or duties. Should any payment for the Service or the Solution be subject to withholding tax by any government, Customer shall reimburse Buildertrend for such withholding tax.

4.8 Future Features and Functionality. Customer acknowledges and agrees that any purchases under this Agreement are not contingent upon the delivery of any future feature or functionality or dependent upon any oral or written public or private comments made by Buildertrend regarding future features or functionality. Buildertrend may release Improvements and other features and functionality in its discretion.

5. Terms and Termination

Either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party: (a) is in material breach of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within twenty (20) days following receipt of written notice from the non-breaching party, except that termination will take effect upon notice in the event of a breach of Section 2.3 (Usage Rights); or (b) ceases its business operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within sixty (60) days. Additionally, Buildertrend may terminate this Agreement immediately upon notice to Customer at any time and for any reason or no reason. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, all Subscriptions and any other rights granted to Customer under this Agreement shall immediately terminate, and Buildertrend may immediately deactivate Customer’s account(s) associated with the Agreement.

Buildertrend reserves the right to participate in the defense of the claim, suit or proceeding, at Buildertrend’s expense, with counsel of Buildertrend’s choosing.

12.2 By Buildertrend. Buildertrend will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer, its Affiliates, and their employees, officers, and directors (together the “Customer Indemnified Parties”) from and against all liabilities, damages, costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of any claim by a third party against the Customer Indemnified Parties to the extent the claim is based on an allegation that the Service or Solution infringes or misappropriates any copyright, trade secret, U.S. patent, or trademark right of the third party. In no event will Buildertrend have any obligations or liability under this Section arising from: (i) Customer’s, any Authorized User’s, or any Registered Client’s use of the Service or Solution other than as permitted under this Agreement; or (ii) use of the Service or Solution in a modified form or in combination with products, services, content, or data furnished to Customer by Buildertrend.

12.3 Potential Infringement. If the Solution becomes, or in Buildertrend’s reasonable judgment is likely to become, subject to a claim of infringement, then Buildertrend may in its sole discretion: (a) obtain the right, at Buildertrend’s expense, for Customer to continue using the Solution; (b) provide a non-infringing functionally equivalent replacement; or (c) modify the Solution so that it is no longer infringing. If Buildertrend, in its sole reasonable judgment, determines that none of the above options are commercially reasonable, then Buildertrend may suspend or terminate Customer’s use of the Solution, in which case Buildertrend’s sole liability (in addition to its obligations under Section 12.2) shall be to provide Customer with a prorated refund of any prepaid, unused fees applicable to the remaining portion of the Subscription Term. Sections 12.2 and 12.3 state Buildertrend’s sole liability and the Customer Indemnified Parties’ exclusive remedy for infringement claims.

12.4 Indemnification Process. The party seeking indemnification must provide prompt notice to the indemnifying party concerning the existence of an indemnifiable claim and must provide the indemnifying party with all information and assistance reasonably requested and otherwise cooperate fully with the indemnifying party in defending the claim. Failure to give prompt notice does not constitute a waiver of a party’s right to indemnification and shall affect the indemnifying party’s obligations under this Agreement only to the extent that the indemnifying party’s rights are materially prejudiced by such failure or delay. The indemnifying party shall have full control and authority over the defense of any claim. However, any settlement requiring the party seeking indemnification to admit liability or make any financial payment shall require such party’s prior written consent.

18.1 Governing Law; Venue. This Agreement and any disputes arising under it will be governed by the laws of the State of Nebraska without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.  Subject to Section 19.2, each party consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the state or federal courts located in Omaha, Nebraska. The parties expressly agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act shall not apply to this Agreement.

18.2 MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND PROHIBITION ON CLASS ACTIONS. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, IT EXPLAINS THE TERMS UPON WHICH CUSTOMER IS WAIVING ITS RIGHT TO BRING CLAIMS ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN A COURT OF LAW OR TO HAVE A JURY RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES HEREUNDER. Except if other applicable laws require otherwise, the parties hereto agree and understand that any dispute or claim related to Customer’s, its Authorized Users or Registered Client’s use of the Solution, any disputes regarding any alleged breach of the Agreement, to the extent such dispute cannot otherwise be resolved, as well as any other action to enforce the terms of this Agreement or for the breach of this Agreement, shall be referred to final and binding arbitration, and not in court.

The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

Any arbitration proceeding will take place in the State of Nebraska, subject to the laws of the State of Nebraska and will otherwise be governed by the then-current commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, and the parties hereto expressly waive their rights, if any, to have any such matters heard by a court or jury, or administrative agency whether federal or state. The parties in any arbitration to enforce this Agreement or remedy its breach will equally share the costs associated with such arbitration proceedings; provided, that, each party shall pay its own attorney’s fees. Within fourteen (14) days after the commencement of arbitration, each party shall select one person to act as arbitrator and the two selected shall select a third arbitrator within ten (10) days of their appointment. If the arbitrators selected by the parties are unable or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association.

All parties agree that any dispute resolution proceedings (including any arbitrations and any court proceedings) will be conducted only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. Class actions and class arbitrations are prohibited. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.

18.3 Notice. Buildertrend may give notices to Customer related to the Solution through email, text, in-app notifications, or by posting them on the Buildertrend website or through the Solution and such electronic notices shall satisfy any legal requirement that such notices be made in writing.

Without limiting this section, a Customer’s Authorized Users and its Registered Clients are not third-party beneficiaries to Customer’s rights under this Agreement.

18.6 Force Majeure. Buildertrend shall not be liable to Customer for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement if the delay or failure is due to events which are beyond the reasonable control of Buildertrend, including but not limited to natural disaster, civil disturbance, acts of terrorism or war, labor conditions, governmental actions, interruption or failure of the Internet or any utility service, failures in third-party hosting services, and denial of service attacks (each a “Force Majeure Event”). Buildertrend shall be relieved from its obligations (or part thereof) as long as the Force Majeure Event lasts and hinders the performance of said obligations (or part thereof). Buildertrend shall promptly notify Customer and make reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of the Force Majeure Event.

18.7 Severability; No Waiver. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to any judicial decree or decision, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and remain enforceable between the parties. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and a party’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

18.8 Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights and licenses granted under this Agreement may be transferred or assigned by either party without the other party’s express written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided, however, that either party may assign this Agreement and all Order Forms under this Agreement upon written notice without the other party’s consent to an Affiliate or to its successor in interest in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets not involving a direct competitor of the non-assigning party.

Customer acknowledges and agrees that its access to or use of the Solution is governed by the then-current Agreement that is effective at the time of Customer’s access to or use of the Solution. If Buildertrend makes material changes to this Agreement, it will notify Customer by updating the “Updated” date indicated at the top of this page with the date that revisions to this Agreement were last made. Buildertrend may notify Customer of any such changes by email or other personal contact. Customer should revisit this Agreement on a regular basis as revised versions will be binding upon Customer. Any such modification will be effective upon Buildertrend’s posting of such new terms. Customer understands and agrees that its continued access to or use of the Solution after the effective date of modifications to this Agreement indicates Customer’s acceptance of the modifications.

18.10 Hyperlinks. A link from the Solution to a third party’s website does not mean that Buildertrend endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, functioning, policies, or use of such website, and Customer enters any such website at its own risk. It is Customer’s responsibility to take precautions to ensure that whatever websites or other online materials that it selects for use are free of viruses and other items of a destructive nature. Additionally, Buildertrend suggests you review the linked site’s terms of service and privacy policy, and if Customer does not agree to be bound by the terms of that site, terminate its visit to that site. Buildertrend is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the sites operated by our business partners or other third parties. Buildertrend expressly disclaims any liability related to such sites. Buildertrend also prohibits unauthorized hypertext links to the Solution or the framing of any content available through the Solution.

The parties are not relying and have not relied on any representations or warranties whatsoever regarding the subject matter of this agreement, express or implied, except for the representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions of the Agreement and any Order Form, the Agreement shall prevail. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary therein, no terms or conditions stated in a Customer purchase order, vendor onboarding process, web portal, or any other Customer order documentation shall be incorporated into or form any part of this Agreement, and all such terms or conditions shall be null and void.

18.12 Equitable Remedies. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Customer acknowledges and agrees that (a) a breach or threatened breach by Customer of any of its obligations under Sections 2.3, 6, 7, and 8.4 of this Agreement would give rise to irreparable harm to Buildertrend for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and (b) in the event of a breach or a threatened breach by Customer of any such obligations, Buildertrend shall, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies that may be available to Buildertrend at law, at equity, or otherwise in respect of such breach, be entitled to equitable relief, including a temporary restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from a court of competent jurisdiction, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, and without any requirement to prove actual damages or that monetary damages will not afford an adequate remedy.
