If You do not take required action in accordance with the above, We may disable the applicable Offering, Service and/or use of such Non-UniKey Application until the potential violation is resolved.
5. NON-UNIKEY PROVIDERS
5.1. Third Party Software. As part of UniKey Offerings, UniKey may supply to Customer or incorporate an object code version of software owned and/or licensed by a party other than UniKey (“Third Party Software”). Third Party Software provided to Customer by UniKey will be provided to Customer pursuant to the terms of the licensor’s applicable license and Customer agrees to be bound thereby. Customer will acquire only those rights in the Third Party Software granted by applicable license and accorded by applicable law. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN AN APPLICABLE CLIENT SERVICES AGREEMENT, UNIKEY PROVIDES THE THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE “AS IS” AND THE WARRANTIES, INDEMNITIES, AND REMEDIES SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH 9 DO NOT APPLY TO THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE OR ANY PORTION OF THE UNIKEY OFFERINGS CONSISTING OF THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE OR ANY BREACH, INFRINGEMENT, OR MISAPPROPRIATION TO THE EXTENT IT IS CAUSED BY SUCH THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE. Customer acknowledges that all warranty, maintenance, support, service or remedy claims related to the Third Party Software must be made exclusively to the manufacturer of the Third Party Software. Except as otherwise provided, Unikey’s provision of maintenance and support does not apply to Third Party Software or software provided by Customer. We do not warrant or support Non-UniKey Applications or other non-UniKey products or services, whether or not they are designated by Us as “certified” or otherwise, except as may otherwise be specified in a Client Services Agreement.
5.2. Non-UniKey Applications and Your Data. If You install or enable a Non-UniKey Application for use with a Service on behalf of Yourself or Your User or Enduser, as the case may be, You grant Us permission to allow the provider of that Non-UniKey Application to access Your and Your Enduser’s Data as required for the interoperation of that Non-UniKey Application with the Service. We are not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Your or Your Enduser’s Data resulting from access. If you install or enable a Non-UniKey Application, You grant UniKey all rights and licenses necessary, including access and use of Enduser credentials, to enable UniKey to perform or expand integrations, extending third party applications and/or to allow Endusers to interact with and order additional features, Services and functionality and/or expanded use of third party applications.
5.3. Access to the UniKey Extended Applications. UniKey may directly provide to You and Endusers a service for access to multiple potential applications or integrations (the “Extended Applications”), including without limitation, enabling an Enduser’s credential to sign into another device and access that device’s further functionality.
5.4. Connecting with UniKey Extended Applications. Some integrations require the ability to connect the identity of the end user with a user in another system requiring an advanced interface (API). This is how You may be allowed and how you may allow Endusers to integrate with and enjoy the benefits of the Extended Applications enabling and extending Your and Your users’ device features and functionality. Linking the Enduser to applications within the Extended Applications means the Enduser account, which may reside in Your ecosystem, must be made accessible by Unikey. Integrations for applications extending functionality to additional properties within the Extended Applications, such as use of a smart home application interface, must use account linking further requiring You to establish the code-authorization and grant flow enabling UniKey to connect Your Enduser with the Extended Applications, which in turn enables the Enduser’s device cloud account to access properties in the Extended Applications. Custom APIs may be required so We can link accounts. You grant Unikey all rights and licenses necessary to allow UniKey to access and use Enduser credentials for purposes of conferring additional functionality and/or agree to obtain such rights from Your users for this purpose.
5.5. Integration with Non-UniKey Applications. The Services may contain features designed to interoperate with Non-UniKey Applications. To use such features, You shall enter into a Client Services Agreement and may be required to obtain access to Non-UniKey Applications from their providers, and it may be required that We be granted access to Your account(s) on the Non-UniKey Applications. If the provider of a Non-UniKey Application ceases to make the Non-UniKey Application available for interoperation with the corresponding Service features on reasonable terms, We may cease providing those Service features without entitling You to anyrefund, credit, or other compensation.
5.6. Single Sign-On (“SSO”). UniKey offers Your Endusers, and such Endusers may select, single-sign-on capabilities upon logging into Your or UniKey’s website, for purposes of accessing all Offerings, including non-UniKey Applications without being subject to a separate registration and/or log-in process service-by-service. Thus, the Enduser receives a single identity on the basis of which UniKey and You may identify and verify that Enduser.
6. FEES AND PAYMENT FOR PURCHASED SERVICES
6.1. Fees. You will pay without deduction or set-off: (i) the fees summarized in any Client Services Agreement for each UniKey Offering purchased by You; and (ii) all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses actually incurred by Us in performing any services or the Services for You. All fees and other charges will be paid in United States dollars. All payments are due within ten (10) days of the invoice date, unless otherwise provided in the applicable Client Services Agreement. Late payments will incur a charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, not to exceed the maximum amount allowed by law.

6.2. Invoicing and Payment. You will provide Us with valid and updated credit card information, or with a valid purchase order against a Client Services Agreement 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 a Client Services Agreement for a subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Client Services Agreement. If the Client Services Agreement 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 Client Services Agreement. Unless otherwise stated in a Client Services Agreement, invoiced charges are due net 30 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.
6.3. 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 Client Services Agreements on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 6.2 (Invoicing and Payment).
6.4. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Our services is thirty (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 that Your account is overdue, in accordance with Section 13.1 (Manner of Giving Notice),before suspending services to You.
6.5. Future Functionality. You agree that Your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Us regarding future functionality or features.

7.4. License by You to Use Feedback. You grant to Us and Our Affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into the Services any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by You or Endusers relating to the operation of the Services.
8.1. Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any non-public information disclosed by a party or its affiliate, its related entities and/or agents (“Disclosing Party”) designated confidential or that, under the circumstances surrounding receipt, the receiving party (“Receiving Party”) should know is treated as confidential by Disclosing Party. Confidential Information will be kept strictly confidential by Receiving Party and will not, without the Disclosing Party's authorization, be disclosed to any third party or used by the Receiving Party for its own benefit except as contemplated by this Agreement. All Our Offerings and accompanying information and material provided to You constitute Our Confidential Information, and You agree not to disclose, de-compile, disassemble nor otherwise reverse engineer any UniKey Offering or accompanying information or material. Confidential Information does not include information: (i) known to Receiving Party before receipt hereunder or later independently developed without use or reference to Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; (ii) lawfully obtained from a third party without restriction and without breach of an obligation to keep it confidential; or (iii) that becomes publicly available other than as a result of an act or omission of Receiving Party. Nothing herein will prevent Us or our employees performing hereunder from providing services or developing materials that are similar or identical to or competitive with those developed or provided under this Agreement. We may use any ideas, concepts, know-how and techniques used, discovered, or reduced to practice while furnishing the Services for the benefit of other of Our customers. The parties recognize and agree that money damages are an inadequate remedy for breach of this Section 8.1 and further recognize that any such breach would result in irreparable harm to the non-breaching party. Therefore, in the event of any such breach, the non-breaching party may obtain injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction to enjoin such activity in addition to any other remedies available to it.
8.2. Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care): (i) not to use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, to limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its Affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those herein. Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement or any Client Services Agreement 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 8.2.
8.3. 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.

10.2. Indemnification by You. You will defend Us against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Us by a third party alleging that Your use of a Service in breach of this Agreement or of any representations and/or warranty made hereunder, or which allegedly infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights or violates applicable law (a “Claim Against Us”), and You will indemnify Us from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Us or for any amounts paid by Us under a court-approved settlement of a Claim Against Us, provided We (a) promptly give You written notice of the Claim Against Us, (b) give You sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Us (except that You may not settle any Claim Against Us unless it unconditionally releases Us of all liability), and (c) provide You with assistance as may reasonably be required, at Your expense.
