A party may terminate these Service Terms for a material breach by the other party that remains uncured for more than seven (7) days from delivery of written notice of the subject breach. Your right to use the Platform Services will automatically terminate upon any termination of these Service Terms. In case of expiration or termination of an Order Form by Customer, all outstanding fees, including the full monthly fee for the then current month, shall become immediately due and payable upon notice of termination (“Outstanding Fees”). For clarification, Everflow invoices monthly in arrears on a full calendar month basis and does not prorate invoices; if your paid access to the Platform Services starts or ends in the middle of a given month, you shall be invoiced for that full calendar month. Either party may terminate this Agreement during the Term immediately if the other party undergoes a bankruptcy or otherwise becomes subject to any other insolvency proceeding.
- Survival.

In consideration for Everflow providing the Platform Services and any agreed-upon professional services (including, without limitation, Setup and Value Added Services work) as defined in the Order Form (“Professional Services”), Customer shall pay to Everflow the corresponding fees set forth in the Order Form.
- Invoices; Payment. Unless otherwise set forth in an Order Form, Everflow shall invoice Customer in arrears at the end of each calendar month for the fees accrued during such calendar month. Each invoice is due and payable thirty (30) days following the invoice date. Overdue payments will accrue interest at the lesser rate of one percent (1%) per month, or the highest rate of interest allowed by law. For clarification, in case of conflict between these Service Terms and the Order Form in regards to invoicing and payment terms, the Order Form shall prevail. All payments shall be made in US Dollars, unless otherwise specified in the Order Form. Customer is responsible for Everflow’s costs and expenses (including attorney fees) to collect past due amounts. For clarification, Everflow invoices monthly in arrears on a full calendar month basis and does not prorate invoices; if your paid access to the Platform Services starts or ends in the middle of a given month, you shall be invoiced for that full calendar month.
- Taxes. The fees specified in these Service Terms are exclusive of taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (including, without limitation, sales, services, and value-added) (collectively, "Taxes"). Customer shall be responsible for payment of all Taxes and any related interest and/or penalties resulting from any payments made hereunder, other than Everflow's U.S. federal and state income taxes.
- Non-Paying Platform Services Users. The obligations set forth in this Section 7 shall not apply to the extent Customer has been provided access to the Platform Services free of charge in furtherance of such Customer’s use of the Platform Services in connection with its relationship with another Everflow customer.
- Obligations. "Confidential Information" means (subject to the exclusions below) any non-public information relating to or disclosed in the course of the Platform Services that should be reasonably understood to be confidential, including without limitation Customer Data. The receiving party will use the same care to protect Confidential Information as it uses for its own similar information, but no less than reasonable care, will not disclose Confidential Information to any third party without prior written authorization of the disclosing party, and will use Confidential Information only for the purpose of fulfilling its obligations or exercising its rights expressly reserved or granted under these Service Terms. The receiving party will promptly return or destroy the other party's Confidential Information upon request.
- Exclusions. Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is or becomes publicly available through no fault of the receiving party; (ii) was already in possession of the receiving party without confidentiality restrictions at the time of receipt from the disclosing party, as evidenced by written records; or (iii) was independently developed by the receiving party without violation of this Section 8. If a receiving party is required to disclose Confidential Information by law, the receiving party will promptly notify the disclosing party and reasonably cooperate with its efforts to limit or protect the required disclosure, but will otherwise not be in violation of this Section 8 on account of making the required disclosure.
9. SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
If Customer's subscription includes service-level commitments, and the Order Form accordingly specifies that Everflow's SLA applies, Customer will be entitled to the commitments and remedies set forth in such SLA as attached hereto as Exhibit A and incorporated herein by reference to or referenced in the Order Form. The remedies expressly provided in the SLA are Customer's sole and exclusive remedy, and Everflow's entire obligation, with respect to any service-level violation.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN THESE SERVICE TERMS (AND WITHOUT LIMITING REMEDIES TO WHICH CUSTOMER MAY BE ENTITLED UNDER THE SLA, IF APPLICABLE), THE PLATFORM SERVICES, PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AND EVERFLOW MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE," WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE.

THE FOREGOING STATES THE ENTIRE OBLIGATION OF EVERFLOW WITH RESPECT TO ANY ALLEGED OR ACTUAL INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS BY THE PLATFORM SERVICES. Everflow shall have no liability under this Section 11.1 to the extent that any Claims are based on (i) any combination of the Platform Services with products, services, methods, content or other elements not authorized in writing by Everflow, (ii) modification or maintenance of the Platform Services by a party other than Everflow; or (iii) any use of the Platform Services in a manner that violates these Service Terms, documentation, instructions or materials (including Everflow Materials) given to Customer by Everflow.
- Mitigation Measures. In the event of any Claim or potential Claim covered by Section 11.1, Everflow may, in its discretion, seek to mitigate the impact of such Claim by modifying the Platform Services to make them non-infringing, and/or by suspending or terminating Customer's use of the Platform Services upon reasonable notice to Customer (provided, in the case of such suspension or termination, that Everflow will refund to Customer a portion of fees prepaid by Customer for the then-current subscription period, prorated to the portion of that subscription period that is affected by the suspension or termination).
- Indemnification by Customer. Customer will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Everflow and its shareholders, directors, officers, employees and agents, and its and their respective successors and assigns against any Claims arising from or related to (i) a breach of any of Customer’s representations, warranties and covenants set forth in this Agreement; (ii) any Customer Data; or (iii) the use of the Platform Services by Customer, Authorized Users, or Partners in violation of these Service Terms or any applicable Everflow documentation, instructions or materials (including Everflow Materials). Customer-indemnified Claims include, without limitation, Claims resulting from your advertising practices, actions or omissions, or those of your affiliate network Partners (including those advertising practices, actions or omissions related to Managed Proxy IP Service and your corresponding dedicated IP addresses, and Administered Domains), and any Claims brought by, or in connection with the actions or omissions of, Third Party Integration Providers.
- Procedures. Each party's indemnity obligations are subject to the following: (i) the aggrieved party will promptly notify the indemnifier in writing of the applicable Claim; (ii) the indemnifier will have sole control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations with respect to the Claim (provided that the indemnifier may not settle any Claim in a manner that would impair any of the indemnified party's rights or interests without prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld); and (iii) the indemnified party will, at the indemnifier's expense, provide all cooperation, information and assistance reasonably requested by the indemnifier for the defense of such Claim. Any delay or failure of the indemnified party to provide notice here under shall only relieve the indemnifier of its obligations hereunder to the extent, if at all, that it is actually prejudiced by reason of such delay or failure.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
- Waiver of Certain Damages. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES, OR FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR INFORMATION, OR COSTS OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, ARISING OUT OF THESE SERVICE TERMS OR THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES TO BE PROVIDED HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

- Waiver. No forbearance or delay by either party in exercising or enforcing the provisions of the Agreement shall prejudice or restrict the rights (whether provided by the Agreement or by law) of that party.

Everflow Service Level Agreement
This Everflow Service Level Agreement ("SLA") supplements the Service Terms together with the Order Form(s) to which they are attached or incorporated, between Everflow and Customer that incorporate this SLA by reference (the "Agreement"). All capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings given to them in the Agreement. This SLA terminates or expires upon any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
1. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
- "Downtime" means any period during which all Platform Services cease to function and are therefore unavailable for access by Customer, calculated as a percentage of the total time during a calendar month.
- "Excused Downtime" means any Downtime that: (a) occurs during a Scheduled Maintenance Period; (b) occurs during any suspension of Customer's access to the Platform Services as permitted under the Agreement; (c) occurs during any period in which Customer is in breach of the Agreement (including while any payments by Customer are overdue); or (d) results from the actions or omissions of Customer or third parties acting on Customer's behalf or from any cause beyond Everflow's reasonable control.
- "Scheduled Maintenance Period" means any pre-scheduled time period during which Everflow performs maintenance on the Platform Services. The regularly scheduled time for maintenance is presently 9 p.m. to 12.00 a.m. PST/PDT, and may be used by Everflow without advance notification. Everflow may expand these scheduled times upon one (1) day's advance notice. Everflow may change the regularly scheduled time for maintenance by amending this SLA upon ten (10) business days' written notice delivered either by email or through a notice on the Platform Services.
- "Target Downtime" means Downtime, excluding Excused Downtime, of 0.1% of the total time in any calendar month.
- In the event that Everflow in its sole discretion determines that any unscheduled maintenance is necessary, Everflow will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer.
- For any calendar month in which the Downtime for the Platform Services exceeds the Target Downtime, Everflow will, if and only if Customer delivers a written credit request within thirty (30) days of the end of the relevant calendar month, issue Customer a service credit calculated as a percentage of the fees due from Customer for such calendar month equal to two (2) times the difference between the Target Downtime and the Downtime percentage. The maximum service credit for any calendar month under this SLA shall not exceed the fees payable for such calendar month.
- This SLA describes your sole remedy, and our entire obligation, if we exceed the Target Downtime. This SLA does not diminish or override the disclaimer of warranties in the Agreement to which this SLA is attached (except as expressly stated therein). No party other than Customer receives any rights under this SLA.
2. TECHNICAL SUPPORT
We will provide commercially reasonable telephone, live online chat, and/or email assistance for general advice and technical support, as well as technical assistance and remediation for operational issues, consistent with the level of support that Everflow generally offers at no additional charge to users of the Platform Services.
All domain additions or changes, as defined in the Order Form, will be performed by Everflow within twenty-four (24) business hours. This term applies solely to domains registered and managed by Everflow. For clarification, service issues related to domains managed by Customer are not subject to this SLA.
