To use such features, You may be required to obtain access to Non-Zight Applications from their providers, and may be required to grant Us access to Your account(s) on the Non-Zight Applications. If the provider of a Non-Zight Application ceases to make the Non- Zight Application available for interoperation with the corresponding Service features on reasonable terms, or Zight chooses to remove interoperability with any Non-Zight Application We may cease providing those Service features without entitling You to any refund, credit, or other compensation.
5. FEES AND PAYMENT FOR PURCHASED SERVICES
5.1. You will pay all fees specified in Service Orders. Except as otherwise specified herein or in a Service Order: (i) fees are based on Services purchased as identified on a Service Order and not Your actual usage of any products (meaning if you fail to use the Service the full amount of all fees are still due), (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iii) quantities purchased may be decreased during the relevant subscription term, however, You may lose some or all of Your Content if You downgrade to a free subscription. Our prices, including monthly subscription plan fees, are subject to change upon 30 days’ notice to you directly via email. Such notice may also be provided to You at any time by posting the changes to the Zight websites or the Service itself.
5.2. Invoicing and Payment. You will provide Us with valid and updated credit card information, or with a valid purchase order or alternative document reasonably acceptable to Us. If You provide credit card information to Us, You authorize Us to charge such credit card for all Purchased Services listed in the Service Order for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) as set forth in Section 11.2(Term of Purchased Subscriptions). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Service Order. If the Service Order specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, We will invoice You in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Service Order. Unless otherwise stated in the Service Order, invoiced charges are due net 14 days from the invoice date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Us and notifying Us of any changes to such information. If You are added to a team account as a user or administrator, after sixty 60 days Your existing individual account balance will be credited pro-rata to the team account. During the 60 days Your individual subscription will remain active should you wish to leave the team account you may provide a personal email address to the support team and we will remove you from the team domain and revert to your individual subscription.
5.3. Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by Us by the due date, then without limiting Our rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) We may condition future subscription renewals and Service Orders on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 5.2 (Invoicing and Payment).
5.4. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Our services is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts You have authorized Us to charge to Your credit card), We may, without limiting Our other rights and remedies, accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Our services to You until such amounts are paid in full. We will give You at least 10 days’ prior notice by email that Your account is overdue, in accordance with Section 12.2 (Manner of Giving Notice), before suspending services to You.
5.5. Payment Disputes. We will not exercise Our rights under Section 5.3 (Overdue Charges) or 5.4 (Suspension of Service and Acceleration) above if You are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute, however, any dispute outstanding more than sixty (60) days past the invoice date will begin to accrue Overdue Charges according to the terms of Section 5.3.
5.6. Taxes. The Fees set forth in any Service Order are exclusive of, and You agree you are liable for and will pay, all Taxes, including any value added tax and goods and services tax or any similar Tax imposed on or measured by this Agreement. If You are required to withhold or deduct any Taxes from the fees, then You agree to increase the amount payable to Zight by the amount of such Taxes so that Zight receives the full amount of all fees. If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section 5.6, We will invoice You and You will pay that amount unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income, property and employees.

7.1.Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Our Confidential Information includes the Services; and Confidential Information of each party includes the terms and conditions of this Agreement and all Service Orders (including pricing), as well as business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party. However, Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (ii) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (iii) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.

Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement or any Service Order to any third party other than its Affiliates, legal counsel and accountants without the other party’s prior written consent, provided that a party that makes any such disclosure to its Affiliate, legal counsel or accountants will remain responsible for such Affiliate’s, legal counsel’s or accountant’s compliance with this Section 7.2. These confidentiality terms supersede any prior documents executed by the parties governing protection of each other’s Confidential Information.
7.3. Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information.
7.4. Remedies Upon Breach. Each party agrees that the other party may have no adequate remedy at law if there is a breach or threatened breach of this Section 7 and, accordingly, that either party may be entitled (in addition to any legal or equitable remedies available to such party) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent or remedy such breach.
