By entering into this Agreement, you also agree to our Data Processor Agreement, between Capdesk and you as a Customer.
In the event of any discrepancies between this Agreement and any other agreement you may have with Capdesk, this Agreement shall prevail, unless the other agreement explicitly mentions that it supersedes this Customer Agreement.

You may object to any substantial change to this Agreement by terminating the Agreement for cause immediately upon notice (pursuant to the termination conditions set out in section 10), on condition that you provide such notice within 90 days of being informed of the change to this Agreement (the "Change Assessment Period"). This termination right is your sole and exclusive remedy if you object to any change in the Agreement.
Your continued use of the Services (non-termination) after the expiry of the Change Assessment Period shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement, as amended, and your continued use of the Services following any noticed modification of this Agreement shall constitute your acceptance to the Agreement, as amended.
The Services governed by this Agreement, referred to as the Services, are the use of the Website www.capdesk.com (the Application) as well as any services (business, technical, or other), provided to you as a Customer by Capdesk, its sub-contractors, business partners, licensors, other affiliates, other Capdesk Customers or Users, and third-party providers (collectively, the 'Information Providers').
You may access and use the Services in accordance with this Agreement and all additional agreements you have with Capdesk, such as the Data Processor Agreement.

In case you want to continue using the Services after a substantial discontinuation or adverse change, the Parties may re-negotiate fees in good faith. Further conditions apply, cf. section 10.
Capdesk or the Information Providers own all right, title, and interest in and to the Services, and all related technology and intellectual property rights.

We will also do our best to keep the Services correct, timely, accurate, reliable and complete.
We strive to have a Monthly Uptime Percentage for the Application above 99.5 %, but as all online services, we suffer occasional disruptions and outages, and we do need occasional service windows for database and application maintenance and upgrades. Service windows are usually scheduled outside UK and EU business hours.

c) Capdesk may also, at its sole discretion and at any time, suspend or discontinue your use of the Services without prior notice, and without any liabilities of any kind, in case Capdesk suspects or determines that your use of the Services in any way materially violates this Agreement, is fraudulent, or if needed to comply with the law or requests from public authorities. Capdesk may, at its sole discretion and at any time, and without any liabilities of any kind, suspend or discontinue your use of the Services with 10 days' prior notice, in case Capdesk suspects or determines that your use of the Services poses a security risk, could impact the operations of our systems or delivery of the Services, could subject Capdesk or a third party to a substantial liability, or if you become the subject of bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation, or similar; in such cases, Capdesk shall provide a reasonably detailed motivation for the suspension or discontinuation. In case of suspension, you remain liable for all fees and charges incurred during the suspension period.
d) Capdesk may also have to terminate or alter this Agreement without notice in case a third-party subcontractor, partner or vendor substantially breaches (or unrightfully terminates) an agreement with Capdesk without notice, Capdesk could not reasonably foresee and prevent such breach or termination, and this breach requires us to substantially alter or terminate the way we provide the Services to you; in this case, we will do whatever is possible to assist you with any transitional needs and inform you ahead of any changes taking place.
Upon the Termination Date, all your rights and obligations under this Agreement immediately terminate. You remain responsible for all fees and charges you have incurred until the Termination Date, and unless you terminate this Agreement without cause (pursuant to above clause a)), Capdesk will reimburse you for any fees prepaid for any period following the Termination Date and on a pro-rata basis form the Termination Date for any fees covering a period including the Termination Date; if you terminate the Agreement without cause, the Parties agree to negotiate in good faith a full or partial reimbursement of any prepaid fees.

If you use the Services after the Termination Date, the terms of this Agreement will still apply in that period, and you will pay the applicable fees and charges for the usage of the Services in this period.
Your data is yours, and as long as your account is accessible (not suspended or terminated), you will be able to export your data from the Application. In case of a partial service discontinuation blocking this function, or in case your account is inaccessible, you can request us to assist with delivering an export of your data, which we will complete within 30 days after being given notice, unless circumstances outside Capdesk's control make such an export impossible. If your account is suspended or terminated due to condition c) above, we will be entitled to a payment for any data export assistance, at an hourly rate of £100-200 ex. VAT (depending on the nature of the assistance), and capped at a maximum fee of £2,500 ex. VAT for such assistance.
We calculate and bill fees and charges regularly, and billing frequencies and timings may vary across Customers. We will send invoices and billing-related communication to your Customer Contact Email address; we may bill you directly using other payment information if you have provided such. By entering into this Agreement, you represent that any payment information you provide is true and accurate, and further that when you purchase the Services or part thereof on a subscription basis (e.g. monthly or yearly), you authorize Capdesk to, upon 30 days' prior notice, automatically renew that subscription and the end of the Service period paid for, to charge recurring subscription fees and to store and reuse your payment information for such recurring billing. Capdesk's failure to provide notice of such automatic renewal will allow you to void (and, if applicable, receive reimbursement for) any subscription fees for renewal.
Payment of any due amounts payable by you under this Agreement or another agreement with Capdesk will be paid to Capdesk without set-off or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding, and according to the payment methods and conditions specified on each invoice. Payments more than 30 days late are subject to an interest of up to 2.5 % per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). After notice of non-payment and 30 days to cure, non-payment can result in our suspension or termination of this Agreement and your loss of access to and use of your Customer account and Your Content.
Unless otherwise provided by law or a specific other agreement with Capdesk, all purchases are final and non-refundable, subject to Section 10. If you believe that we have charged you in error, you must contact us within 30 days of such charge pursuant to the conditions for giving notice in section 16. No refunds will be given for any charges more than 60 days old. Except where required herein, we reserve the right to issue refunds at our sole discretion. If we issue a refund, we are under no obligation to issue the same or similar refund in the future.
We may update fees and charges for parts or all of the Services, or new Services, or if parts of Services are discontinued. Such updates will be effective when we publish information on the updated fees and charges on the Capdesk web site or at another time, if we inform you so in writing. If we increase or add fees or charges, we will notify you at least 45 days in advance of these changes take effect.
12. Limitation of liabilities and indemnification
The Parties are liable according to the general rules of applicable law, subject, however, to the limitations set out in this section.
The Parties disclaim any liability for indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary losses, including loss of profits, goodwill, opportunities, customers, savings and revenue, including expenses to recover lost revenue, interest loss and loss of data.
The Parties' maximal liability for all cumulative claims under this Agreement is limited to the total due payments for the Services for the 12-month period immediately preceding the wrongful act or incident. If this Agreement has not been in force for 12 months, the amount is calculated as the agreed payment for the Services for the period during which this Agreement has been in force divided by the number of months for which the Agreement has been in force and then multiplied by 12. In case of a Party’s breach of its data protection obligations pursuant to the Data Processor Agreement, gross negligence, willful misconduct, or material non-conformity leading to substantial, documented damages for the other Parties, that Party’s maximal liability is instead £200,000 or to the total due payments for the Services for the 12-month period immediately preceding the wrongful act or incident, whichever is greater. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed so as to limit or exclude any liability which cannot be legally limited, including but not limited to liability for: (i) death or personal injury caused by a Party’s negligence; or (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation by a Party.
You will defend and hold harmless Capdesk, its subcontractors, partners, affiliates, and their respective employees against any third-party claim alleging that any of Your Content infringes that third party's intellectual property rights, and you will pay the amount of any adverse final judgment or settlement.
13.WARRANTIES AND Disclaimers
CAPDESK WARRANTS AND REPRESENTS THAT (I) YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES ACCORDING TO SECTION 9 WILL NOT INFRINGE UPON ANY THIRD PARTY RIGHTS (INCLUDING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS) OR VIOLATE ANY APPLICABLE LAWS; (II) IT WILL MAINTAIN APPROPRIATE TECHNICAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL SECURITY MEASURES IN RENDERING THE SERVICES SO AS TO PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES FROM UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS AND USE; AND (III) IT WILL DELIVER THE SERVICES IN A PROFESSIONAL WORKMANLIKE MANNER IN ACCORDANCE WITH INDUSTRY STANDARD.

Neither party can be held liable for situations (delays, failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement, or other) normally referred to as force majeure, including, but not limited to, war, riots, terrorism, insurrection, strike, fire, natural disasters, currency restrictions, import or export restrictions, interruption of traffic, interruption or failure of energy supply, public data systems and communication systems, long-term illness or death of key staff, virus and occurrence of force majeure at subcontractors, partners and affiliates.

This Agreement is subject to the laws of England and Wales, and general EU laws, with the exception of circumstances leading to the use of other laws; and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English High Court of Justice in London.
Should any dispute arise in connection with this Agreement, your use of the Services, or its performance, the Parties shall in a positive, cooperative and responsible spirit seek to initiate negotiations for the purpose of settling the dispute outside courts. If necessary, attempts must be made to transfer negotiations to executive level in the Parties' respective organizations.
If the Parties are unable to solve the dispute by negotiation, the Parties are entitled to demand that the dispute be finally settled by the ordinary courts of law. The English High Court of Justice in London has been selected as venue. You hereby expressly waive the right to commence legal proceedings in all other jurisdictions.
