If you have a separate Cloud Service Agreement with CustomerOS for your use of the Cloud Service, the terms in the Cloud Service Agreement take precedence over the Standard Terms of Service. The Standard Terms of Service apply in all situations that are not defined in a Cloud Service Agreement.
These CustomerOS Standard Terms of Service set forth the terms for your use of the Cloud Service and are effective as of the date you accept or otherwise agree to the terms of this Agreement (“Effective Date”). This Agreement is between the applicable CustomerOS entity identified below and you or the organization on whose behalf you are accepting or otherwise agreeing to the terms of this Agreement (“you", “your”, “yours”, or “Customer”).
The updated version of this Agreement will be available at https://customeros.ai/standard-agreement/tos. Notices for material updates to the terms of this Agreement will be given in accordance with Section 14.8 (Notices). Following such notice, your continued use of the Cloud Service on or after the date of the updated version of this Agreement is effective and binding, as indicated at the top of this Agreement, constitutes your acceptance of the updated version of this Agreement. The updated version of this Agreement supersedes all prior versions. If you do not agree to the updated version of this Agreement, you must stop using the Cloud Service immediately.
CustomerOS may update the terms of this Agreement from time to time. CustomerOS will provide you with written notice of any material updates prior to the date the updated version of this Agreement is effective, unless such material updates result from changes in laws or regulations.
Finally, you understand and acknowledge that by using the Cloud Service, you agree to have fun and delight your customers 🙂.

If the Cloud Service does not meet the SLA, CustomerOS will provide the remedies outlined in the SLA and will not be responsible for any other remedies. Any credits earned under the SLA will only apply to future invoices and expire if the Agreement ends.

CustomerOS will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer from and against all CustomerOS Covered Claims made by someone other than Customer, Customer’s Affiliates, or Users, and all out-of-pocket damages, awards, settlements, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses, that arise from the CustomerOS Covered Claims.

A Protected Party may participate in a Covered Claim for which it seeks protection with its own attorneys only at its own expense.

12.4 Permitted Disclosures
Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information to Users, employees, advisors, contractors, and representatives who each have a need to know the Confidential Information, but only if the person or entity is bound by confidentiality obligations at least as protective as those in this Section 12 and Recipient remains responsible for everyone’s compliance with the terms of this Section 12.
12.5 Publicity Rights
Unless otherwise specified in a Cloud Service Agreement, CustomerOS may identify the Customer and use Customer’s logo and trademarks on the CustomerOS website and in marketing materials for the exclusive use of identifying the Customer as a user of the Cloud Service.

During the 30-day notice period, Customer may terminate the Agreement upon notice if the update is a material reduction from the prior version and CustomerOS cannot reasonably restore the prior version or a comparable alternative.
If any term of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a relevant court or governing body, the remaining terms of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. The failure of a party to enforce a term or to exercise an option or right in this Agreement will not constitute a waiver by that party of the term, option, or right.
14.3 Governing Law and Chosen Courts
The Governing Law will govern all interpretations and disputes about this Agreement, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The parties will bring any legal suit, action, or proceeding about this Agreement in the Chosen Courts and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Chosen Courts.
14.4 Injunctive Relief
Despite Section 14.3 (Governing Law and Chosen Courts), a breach of Section 12 (Confidentiality) or the violation of a party’s intellectual property rights may cause irreparable harm for which monetary damages cannot adequately compensate. As a result, upon the actual or threatened breach of Section 12 (Confidentiality) or violation of a party’s intellectual property rights, the non-breaching or non-violating party may seek appropriate equitable relief, including an injunction, in any court of competent jurisdiction without the need to post a bond and without limiting its other rights or remedies.
14.5 Non-Exhaustive Remedies
Except where the Agreement provides for an exclusive remedy, seeking or exercising a remedy does not limit the other rights or remedies available to a party.
Neither party may assign any rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party. However, either party may assign this Agreement upon notice if the assigning party undergoes a merger, change of control, reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all its equity, business, or assets to which this Agreement relates. Any attempted but non-permitted assignment is void. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their permitted successors and assigns.

There are no third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
14.11 Force Majeure
Neither party will be liable for a delay or failure to perform its obligations of this Agreement if caused by a Force Majeure Event. However, this section does not excuse Customer’s obligations to pay fees.
Neither party will take any action that would be a violation of any Applicable Laws that prohibit the offering, giving, promising to offer or give, or receiving, directly or indirectly, money or anything of value to any third party to assist CustomerOS or Customer in retaining or obtaining business. Examples of these kinds of laws include the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act 2010.
