These General Terms and Conditions of Services (“Terms”), including any referenced Supplemental Terms and any order form (“Order Form”) incorporating these Terms (collectively, the “Agreement”) are entered into between UptimeHealth Inc. (“Company”) and the Subscriber identified on the applicable Order Form or as otherwise provided to Company. Company and Subscriber are each referred to as a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”. Capitalized terms used but not defined in these Terms shall have the meanings given elsewhere in the Agreement.
1. Nature of the Services
1.1 General. Company offers a proprietary technology platform (e.g., website, mobile application) with an online marketplace to facilitate the provision of equipment and facility management services (“Marketplace”) (collectively, the “Services”), and on-site maintenance, repair, and support services (“Professional Services”) subject to Supplemental Terms (as defined below).
1.2 Access. Subject to an executed Order Form, and any restrictions herein or as set forth in Company’s policies, guides, and manuals as updated and amended from time to time (“Documentation”), Company grants Subscriber a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right for Subscriber’s Authorized Users to access and use the Services in accordance with these Terms and Documentation. The Services are made available to Subscriber via a portal. Subscriber shall (a) be responsible, at its expense, for obtaining its own Internet access, and any required hardware, software, or other technology to connect to the portal, (b) prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Services, nor disclose Company IP, and notify Company promptly of any such unauthorized access or use, and (c) use the Services only in accordance with applicable laws and Documentation. All rights not expressly granted to Subscriber are reserved by Company (and its licensors). There are no implied rights granted by Company.
1.3 Authorized Users. Subscriber may permit its employees, agents, and contractors (“Authorized Users”) to access certain functionality of the Services subject to applicable restrictions or limitations set forth herein, provided that: (a) Subscriber is responsible for all acts and omissions of Authorized Users, including Marketplace transactions and (b) each such Authorized User (i) is permitted to access the Services solely for Subscriber’s internal business purposes, during the Subscription Term and (ii) is bound by the restrictions and other limitations set forth in the Agreement. For clarity this Section 1.3 in no way limits any obligations Subscriber may have related to third parties under a separate written agreement with Company.

1.5 Professional Services. If indicated on an order form, Subscriber may elect to engage Company for the provision of certain Professional Services subject to additional terms (“Supplemental Terms”) and fees as specified on the order form or Documentation. If Subscriber requests the provision of Professional Services on-site at Subscriber’s facility, and Company agrees in writing to provide such Professional Services, Company shall bill and Subscriber agrees to pay any costs and expenses (including any travel expenses) related to the provision of Professional Services on-site. Subscriber’s execution of an order form for Professional Services constitutes Subscriber’s agreement to be bound to the Supplemental Terms and pay any fees relating to such Professional Services. If these Terms are inconsistent with such Supplemental Terms, the Supplemental Terms shall control with respect to such Professional Services. Company may add or discontinue offering any Professional Services, in whole or in part, in Company’s discretion, at any time unless expressly agreed otherwise in the Agreement.

(b) Non-use and Non-disclosure. The Parties shall, at all times, both during the Term of this Agreement and thereafter so long as such information continues to meet the definition of Confidential Information, use commercially reasonable efforts to keep all Confidential Information of the other Party confidential and shall only disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information to those of its employees and permitted third parties as are necessary to fulfill such Party’s obligations under this Agreement.

Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and UptimeHealth’s entire liability for breach of the limited warranty provided in this Article, shall be correction of the warranted non-conformity. Customer shall provide UptimeHealth with prompt written notice of any non-conformity described in this Article with thirty (30) days of Customer’s discovery of such non-conformity. If UptimeHealth is not able to correct such non-conformity within a commercially reasonable amount of time after notification by Customer, Customer shall have the right to terminate the applicable Order Form.

9. Infringement and Third-Party Claims
(a UptimeHealth shall save, defend, indemnify and hold Customer, its respective affiliates, employees, officers, owners and directors, harmless from and against any and all third party claims and resulting damages, costs, and other liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising out of: any alleged infringement of a third party’s intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights that arising directly out of any UptimeHealth’s obligations under this Agreement. This obligation of UptimeHealth shall not apply if the alleged infringement or misappropriation results from the use of the Service in conjunction with any other software or service not provided by UptimeHealth or to free (no fee) licenses of the SaaS Services.
(b) In the event a claim under this Article is made or in UptimeHealth’s reasonable opinion is likely to be made, UptimeHealth may, at its sole option and expense: (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using the SaaS Services under the terms of this Agreement; or (ii) replace or modify the SaaS Services to be non-infringing without material decrease in functionality. If UptimeHealth provides written notice to Customer that the foregoing options are not reasonably available, UptimeHealth or Customer may terminate this Agreement and UptimeHealth shall refund to Customer all prepaid fees for the remainder of the Subscription Term after the date of termination.
(c) Customer shall indemnify and defend UptimeHealth, its respective affiliates, employees, officers, directors, harmless from and against all third party claims and resulting damages, costs, and other liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of: (i) any alleged infringement of a third party’s intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights that arises directly out of any Customer’s obligations under this Agreement; (iii) Customer’s access or use of the SaaS Services in violation of any applicable law or regulation; or (iv) an allegation that the Customer Data or Customer’s use of the SaaS Services in violation of this Agreement violates, infringes or misappropriates the rights of a third party.

The foregoing shall apply regardless of whether such damage is caused by the conduct of Customer and/or its Authorized Users or by the conduct of a third-party using Customer’s access credentials.
(d) The obligations under this Article are conditioned on (a) the party against whom a third party claim is brought timely notifying the other party in writing of any such claim, provided however that a party’s failure to provide or delay in providing such notice shall not relieve a party of its obligations under this Article except to the extent such failure or delay prejudices the defense; (b) the party who is obligated hereunder to defend a claim having the right to fully control the defense of such claim; and (c) the party against whom a third party claim is brought reasonably cooperating in the defense of such claim. Any settlement of any claim shall not include a financial or specific performance obligation on or admission of liability by the party against whom the claim is brought, provided however that UptimeHealth may settle any claim on a basis requiring UptimeHealth to substitute for the SaaS Services any alternative substantially equivalent non-infringing services. The party against whom a third-party claim is brought may appear, at its own expense, through counsel of its choosing. Neither party shall undertake any action in response to any infringement or misappropriation, or alleged infringement or misappropriation, that is prejudicial to the other party’s rights.
