AS TO ANY PARTICULAR ORDERING DOCUMENT, THE ORDERING DOCUMENT, THE SERVICES DEFINITIONS AND SERVICE-SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND THESE TERMS TOGETHER CONSTITUTE THE AGREEMENT OF THE PARTIES AND ARE REFERRED TO COLLECTIVELY HEREIN AS THE “AGREEMENT.” IN THE EVENT OF ANY CONFLICT BETWEEN THE ORDERING DOCUMENT AND THESE TERMS, THESE TERMS SHALL PREVAIL UNLESS THE ORDERING DOCUMENT EXPRESSLY PROVIDES THAT IT IS MODIFYING THESE TERMS WITH RESPECT TO SUCH AGREEMENT.
Licensee and FiveCRM agree as follows:
“FiveCRM” has the meaning set forth in Section 13.11 below.
“Licensee” means the party to whom FiveCRM is to provide products or services pursuant to the Ordering Document (whether identified as “licensee”, “customer”, “client” or similar designation in the Ordering Document). If “Licensee” includes more than one legal person, the obligations imposed upon each shall be joint and several. The act of, notice from or to, or signature of any one or more of the persons included within “Licensee” shall be binding on all such persons with respect to all rights and obligations under this Agreement, including but not limited to any renewal, extension, termination, or modification of this Agreement.
1.1 FiveCRM, directly or through an affiliate, agrees to provide to Licensee the products and/or services set forth in the Ordering Document (the “Services”). The Services may include information (the “Licensed Materials”), access to and/or use of software or other technology (the “FiveCRM Technology”), or other services including premium support. Specific Services may be defined by and are subject to the Services Definitions and Service-Specific Terms and Conditions included with the Ordering Document. FiveCRM will make the Services available to the Licensee via password-protected online access accessible by Licensee with usernames and passwords, via an application programmer interface (“API”), or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. Subject to the terms and conditions herein, FiveCRM grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferrable license to access and use the Services in accordance with this Agreement and during the Term of this Agreement.
1.2 The services offered by the Company include a “software as a service” (SaaS) application (the “Application” and the “Service(s)” respectively). The Services shall be provided through Company’s servers and/or third party’s external servers or cloud-based servers, to be determined by the Company, in its sole discretion. The Company shall provide support services in connection with the Services in accordance with the service level set forth in section 13.12 below.
1.3 Ownership. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that, as between Licensee and FiveCRM, the Licensed Materials, the FiveCRM Technology, and any related documentation (including, without limitation, the content, layout, functions, design, appearance, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, patents, and other intellectual property comprising the Licensed Materials or FiveCRM Technology) are the property of FiveCRM, whether or not they are trademarked, copyrighted, or patented. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement does not transfer any ownership, right, title, or interest in the Licensed Materials or FiveCRM Technology, nor any part thereof, except the limited license provided hereunder, and Licensee expressly disclaims and waives any and all claims to any ownership interest in any such information or materials. This includes, without limitation, any Licensed Materials that Licensee downloads, prints, saves, or incorporates into other materials. Licensee further acknowledges and agrees that the Licensed Materials, in whole or in part, are unique, special, and valuable. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, FiveCRM, its affiliates and/or its licensors reserve all right, title, and interest in and to the Licensed Materials and FiveCRM Technology, including all related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to Licensee hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein. All other trademarks, registered trademarks, product names, and company names or logos mentioned in or on the FiveCRM Technology are the property of their respective owners. Reference to any products, services, processes, or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation thereof by FiveCRM nor any endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation of FiveCRM by any such person or entity.
1.4 Third Party Applications. “Third Party Applications” means computer software programs and other technology that are provided or made available to Licensee or Authorized Users by third parties, including those with which the FiveCRM Technology may interoperate, including, for example, Licensee’s VOIP, marketing automation software, or sales enablement software, if any. FiveCRM may make available certain “Integration Tools”, which consist of FiveCRM Technology designed to allow Licensee to use FiveCRM Technology and the Licensed Materials in such a way as to interoperate with one or more Third Party Applications. FiveCRM is not responsible for and does not endorse any Third Party Applications or websites linked to by FiveCRM Technology.
1.5 Support. FiveCRM will provide reasonable assistance and ongoing support to assist Licensee and Authorized Users in accessing the Software.

Licensee may designate a non-employee (i.e., an independent contractor) as an Authorized User only with FiveCRM’s prior permission and provided Licensee takes reasonable steps to ensure such non-employee uses the Services only as permitted under this Agreement. If the employment of any Authorized User that was in effect as of the date such person was designated as an Authorized User terminates, such person’s authorization to access the Services shall be revoked automatically without any further action by FiveCRM. In the event of a termination as described in the previous sentence, Licensee shall promptly notify FiveCRM and take all reasonable steps to ensure that such person ceases accessing the Services.

All amounts payable by Licensee under this Agreement will be paid to FiveCRM without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding. FiveCRM’s acceptance of partial payment or any payment of less than the full amount payable at any given time shall not constitute a waiver or release of FiveCRM’s right to unpaid amounts.
4.2 If Licensee fails to timely make any payment of Subscription Fees, FiveCRM may, in its sole discretion, take any or all of the following actions: (a) restrict or suspend Licensee’s access to the FiveCRM Technology until all past-due payments are made, (b) terminate this Agreement, or (c) accelerate the payment of Subscription Fees such that all unpaid Subscription Fees shall be immediately payable. FiveCRM shall have the right to charge interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or, if less, the highest rate permitted by law) on any late payments. Restriction or suspension of Licensee’s online access to the Licensed Materials during period of non-payment shall have no effect on the Term of this Agreement nor on Licensee’s obligation to pay the Subscription Fee.

If FiveCRM believes any such tax applies to Licensee’s subscription and FiveCRM has a duty to collect and remit such tax, the same may be set forth on an invoice to Licensee unless Licensee provides FiveCRM with a valid tax exemption certificate, direct pay permit, or multi-state use certificate, and shall be paid by Licensee immediately or as provided in such invoice.
