If Assembled does so, it will post the changes on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date this Agreement was last revised. Assembled will also notify Customer, either through the Services user interface, in an email notification or through other reasonable means. Any such changes will become effective no earlier than fourteen (14) days after being posted, except that changes addressing new functions of the Services or changes made for legal reasons may become effective immediately. Customer’s continued use of the Service after the date any such changes become effective constitutes acceptance of the new Agreement.

3. Confidentiality; Proprietary Rights.

3.1 Each party (the “Receiving Party”) understands that the other party (the “Disclosing Party”) has disclosed or may disclose business, technical or financial information relating to the Disclosing Party’s business (hereinafter referred to as “Proprietary Information” of the Disclosing Party). Proprietary Information of Assembled includes non-public information regarding features, functionality and performance of the Service. Proprietary Information of Customer includes non-public data provided by Customer to Assembled to enable the provision of the Services (“Customer Data”). The Receiving Party agrees: (i) to take reasonable precautions to protect such Proprietary Information, and (ii) not to use (except in performance of the Services or as otherwise expressly permitted herein) or divulge to any third person any such Proprietary Information. The Disclosing Party agrees that the foregoing shall not apply with respect to any information that the Receiving Party can document (a) is or becomes generally available to the public, or (b) was in its possession or known by it prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party, or (c) was rightfully disclosed to it without restriction by a third party, (d) was independently developed without use of any Proprietary Information of the Disclosing Party.

3.2 Customer shall own all right, title and interest in and to the Customer Data, as well as any data that is based on or derived from the Customer Data and provided to Customer as part of the Services. Assembled shall own and retain all right, title and interest in and to (a) the Services and Software, all improvements, enhancements or modifications thereto, (b) any software, applications, inventions or other technology developed in connection with Implementation Services or support, and (c) all intellectual property rights related to any of the foregoing.

No rights or licenses are granted except as expressly set forth herein. As used herein, the term “aggregated” means data that is combined with data of other Assembled customers such that no data or information concerning Customer or Customer’s use of the Services can be identified or derived; and the term “anonymized” means data that does not identify, and cannot be used in combination with other data to identify, Customer or any individual.

3.4 Customer may from time to time provide Assembled suggestions or comments for enhancements or improvements, new features or functionality or other feedback (“Feedback”) with respect to the Services. Assembled will have full discretion to determine whether or not to proceed with the development of any requested enhancements, new features or functionality. Assembled will have the full, unencumbered right, without any obligation to compensate or reimburse Customer, to use, incorporate and otherwise fully exercise and exploit any such Feedback in connection with its products and services.

4. Payment of Fees.

4.1 Customer’s Subscription fees are set forth in the applicable Order Form and are based on the number End Users and version of the Service purchased. Customer shall pay all fees when due and is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to Assembled. If such fees are being paid via credit card or other electronic means, Customer authorizes Assembled to charge such fees using Customer’s selected payment method. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable unless otherwise provided herein. The number of End Users purchased under a Subscription cannot be decreased during the applicable Subscription Term. If Customer requires the use of a purchase order or purchase order number, Customer shall provide the purchase order number at the time of purchase. Where Customer designates use of a third-party payment processor network (such as a payment agent, for example), Customer shall be responsible for payment of all fees and charges associated with use of such network. Assembled reserves the right to suspend Customer’s account, in addition to all of its other available rights and remedies, in the event that Customer’s account becomes overdue. Suspension shall not relieve Customer’s obligation to pay amounts due.

4.2 Customer agrees that its Subscription will automatically renew on an annual or monthly basis depending on Customer’s Subscription (the “Renewal Date”). Customer authorizes Assembled to automatically charge Customer for the applicable fees on or after the Renewal Date unless the Subscription has been terminated or cancelled in accordance with this Agreement. If Customer wishes to reduce the number of End Users in its Subscription, it must do so prior to the Renewal Date. Customer must cancel its Subscription prior to the Renewal Date in order to avoid billing of the next period’s Subscription fees. Customer can cancel its Subscription anytime online by going into its account settings and following the instructions provided. If Customer chooses to cancel its Subscription during the Subscription Term, Customer may use the Service until the end of Customer’s then-current Subscription Term or renewal period, but will not be issued a refund for the most recently (or any previously) charged fees.

4.3 Subscription fees are based on annual or monthly periods (or pro rata portions thereof, calculated on a daily basis) that begin on the Subscription start date and each annual or monthly anniversary thereof. Subscriptions to the Service are sold on a tiered basis based on the number of End Users. Customer shall purchase a Subscription to the Service for each End User, and the initial number of End Users and tier is reflected in the applicable Order Form. Customer may add End Users to its Subscription at any time on written notice to Assembled (email notice acceptable). Assembled reserves the right to calculate the total number of End Users periodically and, if the number of End Users exceeds Customer’s current Subscription, then Assembled reserves the right to invoice Customer for the applicable tier on a pro rata basis for the remaining period in Customer’s Subscription Term, so that all End User Subscription Terms coincide and are co-terminus. Assembled reserves the right to revise fee rates and/or the billable amount structure for the Service at any time and will provide Customer with notice pursuant to Section 11.4 below) of any such changes at least twenty (20) days prior. Assembled may charge Customer the then-current pricing for the applicable Subscription if the number of End Users is modified and/or if Customer changes its Subscription plan.

4.4 Any fees charged to Customer are exclusive of taxes. Except for those taxes based on Assembled’s net income, Customer shall be responsible for all applicable taxes in connection with this Agreement including, but not limited to, sales, use, excise, value-added, goods and services, consumption, and other similar taxes or duties. Should any payment for the Service be subject to withholding tax by any government, Customer shall reimburse Assembled for such withholding tax.

4.5 Future Features and Functionality. Customer agrees that any purchases under this Agreement are not contingent on the delivery of any future feature or functionality or dependent on any oral or written public or private comments made by Assembled regarding future features or functionality. Assembled may release Improvements and other features and functionality in its discretion. Some features and functionality may be available only with certain versions of the Service.
