Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Dodgeball is not responsible for any Third-Party Services used by Customer with the Service, their code or technology, or how the providers use or protect Customer Data. Customer’s use of any Third-Party Services is subject to Customer’s separate agreement with the provider.
Notwithstanding anything else, Customer grants Dodgeball a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty free, paid-up, sub-licensable, right and license to use, display, reproduce, distribute and otherwise exploit Feedback for any purposes.

All fees are as set forth on Dodgeball's website (or as otherwise agreed to by Dodgeball and Customer in writing). Fees are payable when due. If Customer has provided Dodgeball with a credit card or bank account number, Customer hereby authorizes Dodgeball (or its third party payment processor) to charge such card or account for all fees owed. If Customer pays in advance for usage-based pricing, and then exceeds such usage, Dodgeball will invoice Customer for the excess usage on a pro rata basis for the remainder of the term. Dodgeball may adjust the fees charged to Customer hereunder on notice at any time. If Customer does not want to agree to any fee increase, its sole remedy, and Dodgeball’s exclusive liability, is to terminate this Agreement on notice (or by canceling Customer’s Service account via the functionality provided therein). If Customer disagrees with an invoice, it must notify Dodgeball within thirty (30) days from receipt of the invoice – or it is deemed final. Dodgeball’s fees are exclusive of all taxes and other governmental assessments. Customer is responsible for all of the foregoing - other than taxes based on the income of Dodgeball.
In the event of late payments, Customer agrees to pay interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month (or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less). In addition, Customer will reimburse Dodgeball for all costs of collection (including attorneys’ fees).

The Subscription Term will automatically renew for successive renewal terms of equal length to the initial Subscription Term, unless: (i) Customer cancels its Service account via the account functionality prior to the renewal date, or (ii) this Agreement is otherwise terminated as set out herein.
Dodgeball may terminate this Agreement and the Subscription Term at any time, with or without notice; provided that, if such termination is in the middle of a Subscription Term and termination if not for Customer’s breach, Dodgeball will refund all fees paid in advance for the remainder of the Subscription Term. In addition, either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party (a) fails to cure any material breach of this Agreement (including a failure to pay fees) within thirty (30) days after written notice (such notice must contain sufficient detail as to the nature of the breach and state the intent to terminate); (b) ceases operation without a successor; or (c) seeks protection under, or is subject to, any bankruptcy, receivership or comparable proceeding.

DODGEBALL SHALL NOT LIABLE, UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY OF LAW, WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY: (I) INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, RELIANCE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS), EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE, (II) AMOUNTS IN THE AGGREGATE IN EXCESS OF THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO DODGEBALL DURING THE IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THREE (3) MONTH PERIOD (OR, IF NO AMOUNTS HAVE BEEN PAID, SUCH AMOUNT SHALL BE US$1,000.00), OR (III) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE TECHNOLOGY OR SERVICES.

Each party agrees that all business and technical information it obtains (“Receiving Party”) from the disclosing party (“Disclosing Party”) constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be Confidential Information due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. All fees and pricing information will be Dodgeball’s Confidential Information. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will, using reasonable measures, hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information. The Receiving Party’s nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; or (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party. If required to be disclosed by law, the Receiving Party will immediately notify the Disclosing Party and use its best efforts to limit the disclosure. The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief (without the posting of a bond or similar instrument) in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
Customer agrees that Dodgeball may use of Customer’s name and logo on Dodgeball’s website and in Dodgeball promotional materials as part of a general list of customers. Any other marketing or promotion use is subject to Customer’s written approval (email is sufficient).

Dodgeball may freely assign this Agreement. Any attempt to transfer or assign this Agreement except as expressly authorized under this Section 12.1 will be null and void.
Dodgeball will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement (except for a failure to pay fees) if the delay or failure is due to events which are beyond the reasonable control of Dodgeball, such as a strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, pandemic, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of telecommunications, or refusal of a license by a government agency.
