Alchemy shall have no liability for any Claim or demand arising from (i) an allegation that does not state with specificity that the Alchemy Cloud Services is the basis of the Claims; (ii) the use or combination of the Alchemy Cloud Services or any part thereof with software, hardware, or other materials not developed by Alchemy if the Alchemy Cloud Services or use thereof would not infringe without such combination; (iii) modification of the Alchemy Cloud Services by a party other than Alchemy, if the use of unmodified Alchemy Cloud Services would not constitute infringement; (iv) a breach by Customer of any obligation under this Agreement or a use of the Alchemy Cloud Services by Customer or any User in a manner outside the scope of any right granted herein or not in accordance with the Alchemy Documentation if the claim would not have arisen but for such breach or unauthorized use; (v) an allegation made against Customer arising out of or related to the Beta Versions, open source software, or Customer Inputs; or (vi) an allegation made against Customer prior to the execution of this Agreement or any allegation based upon any action by Customer prior to the execution of this Agreement. The foregoing states Alchemy’s entire liability and Customer’s exclusive remedy for intellectual property rights infringement.
8.2 Customer Indemnity. Customer shall defend, indemnify and hold Alchemy, its affiliates, employees, officers, and directors harmless from and against any loss or damage (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with Claims (i) made or brought against Alchemy by a third party alleging that the Customer Inputs infringes the intellectual property rights of, or has otherwise harmed, a third party; (ii) based upon any User’s use of the Alchemy Cloud Services not in accordance with the terms hereof or not in accordance with the Alchemy Documentation or violation of 4.2 (Use Guidelines), 4.3 (Restrictions) or 4.4 (Customer Input Restrictions); or (iii) based on any failure or alleged failure of the Customer to comply with any applicable law, rule or regulation in connection with its use of the Alchemy Cloud Services for Customer’s business.
8.3 Indemnification Process. The foregoing indemnification obligations are conditioned on the indemnified party: (a) notifying the indemnifying party promptly in writing of such action, (b) reasonably cooperating and assisting in such defense at the indemnifying party’s expense, and (c) giving sole control of the defense and any related settlement negotiations to the indemnifying party with the understanding that the indemnifying party may not settle any claim in a manner that admits guilt or otherwise prejudices the indemnified party, without the indemnified party’s prior written consent.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
9.1 Limitation of Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER ARISING UNDER STATUTE, CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EXCEED THE AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY CUSTOMER UNDER THE APPLICABLE STATEMENT OF WORK OR THE APPLICABLE ORDER FORM UNDER WHICH THE CLAIM AROSE DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE DATE ON WHICH SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS ARE CUMULATIVE AND NOT PER INCIDENT AND SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THE NON-BREACHING PARTY’S REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
9.2 Exclusion of Consequential and Related Damages. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO THE OTHER PARTY OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY LOSS OF ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF, DAMAGE TO, OR CORRUPTION OF, DATA, LOSS OF USE, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER ARISING UNDER STATUTE, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE OR WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE WAS FORESEEABLE OR IN THE CONTEMPLATION OF THE PARTIES.
9.3 Exclusions. The foregoing limitations shall not apply to (i) amounts payable by Customer to Alchemy under an Order Form or Statement of Work, (ii) liability arising from the indemnification obligations in Section 8, (iii) damages arising from a breach by Customer of Section 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, or 4, (iv) damages arising from misappropriation of a party’s Intellectual Property Rights; or (iv) damages arising from a party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
9.4 Savings Clause. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON DURATION OR THE EXCLUSION OF AN IMPLIED WARRANTY, SO THE LIMITATIONS HEREIN MAY NOT APPLY. Neither party shall be responsible or liable for any loss, damage or inconvenience suffered by the other or by any third person, to the extent that such loss, damage or inconvenience is caused by the failure of the other party to comply with its obligations under this Agreement.
9.5 Limitation of Action. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law and except for actions for non-payment or breach of either party's intellectual property rights, no action (regardless of form) arising out of this Agreement may be commenced by either party more than one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued.
9.6 Allocation of Risk. Each party acknowledges that the fees set forth in this Agreement reflect the allocation of risk between the parties and that the other party would not enter into this Agreement without these limitations on its liability.
10. TERM AND TERMINATION
10.1 Term. The term of this Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and remain in effect until all Order Forms and Statements of Work have terminated or expired or until earlier termination of this Agreement as provided in this Section 10 (the “Term”). The term for each Order Form and Statement of Work shall be as set forth therein. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, all Order Forms and Statements of Work shall immediately terminate.
10.2 Termination. This Agreement and any Order Form or Statement of Work may be terminated:
(a) by Customer (i) in accordance with Section 2.3 by providing written notice to Alchemy within thirty (30) days of any modification to the Alchemy Cloud Services which materially and adversely reduces the functionality of the Alchemy Cloud Services;
(b) by Alchemy if Customer fails to timely make any payment due hereunder and fails to cure such default within fifteen (15) days after receiving notice in writing from Alchemy of such failure (whether or not Alchemy avails itself of its right to suspend Services pursuant to Section 10.4 hereof); or
(c) by either party (the “Non-breaching Party”) effective immediately upon written notice containing an explanation of the alleged breach to the other party (the “Breaching Party”), if the Breaching Party breaches any provision of this Agreement, and does not cure the breach within thirty (30) days after receiving written notice thereof from the Non-breaching Party.
10.3 Termination Upon Bankruptcy or Insolvency. Either party may, at its option, terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notice to the other, in the event (a) that the other party becomes insolvent or unable to pay its debts when due; (b) the other party files a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, or, if filed against, such petition is not removed within ninety (90) days after such filing; (c) the other party discontinues its business; or (d) a receiver is appointed or there is an assignment for the benefit of the other party’s creditors. Upon termination of the Agreement by Customer due to Alchemy’s bankruptcy or insolvency, Alchemy shall refund to Customer any pre-paid fees previously paid by Customer for services not performed as of the date of termination.
10.4 Suspension of Services. At any time during the Term, Alchemy may, immediately upon notice to Customer, suspend its performance under this Agreement and any Order Form or may suspend any and all Users’ access to the Alchemy Cloud Services, in Alchemy’s sole reasonable discretion, including, without limitation, for any of the following reasons: (a) a reasonable threat to the technical security or technical integrity of the Alchemy Cloud Services exists as determined by Alchemy in its sole and absolute discretion; provided that Alchemy promptly recommences performance upon the cessation of the threat, or (b) if any amount due under this Agreement is not received by Alchemy within fifteen (15) days after it was due and Alchemy provided written notice of same.
10.5 Outstanding Fees. Termination shall not relieve Customer of the obligation to pay any fees accrued or payable to Alchemy prior to the effective date of termination. In the event of termination by Customer pursuant to Section 10.2(a), 10.2(c), or 10.3, promptly after the effective date of such termination, Alchemy shall refund to Customer on a pro-rata basis any prepaid fees paid by Customer for the remainder of the then current subscription term under the terminated Order Forms and any terminated Statement of Work. In the event of termination by Alchemy pursuant to Section 10.2(b) 10.2(c) or 10.3, all amounts payable by Customer under this Agreement and all Order Forms and Statements of Work will become immediately due and payable.
10.6 Rights and Obligations Upon Expiration or Termination. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, Customer’s and its Users’ right to access and use the Alchemy Cloud Services will immediately terminate, Customer and its Users will immediately cease all use of the Alchemy Cloud Services, and each party will return and make no further use of any Confidential Information, materials, or other items (and all copies thereof) belonging to the other party. Alchemy may destroy any Customer Inputs in its possession or control unless Alchemy receives, no later than ten (10) days after the effective date of the expiration or termination of this Agreement, a written request for the delivery to Customer of the then most recent back-up of the Customer Inputs. Alchemy will use all reasonable efforts to deliver the back up to Customer within thirty (30) days of its receipt of such a written request. Also upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, Alchemy will cease use of the Customer’s name, logo, and trademarks ( “Customer Marks”); provided, however, that (a) Alchemy will have a reasonable time to remove the Customer Marks from promotional materials, and (b) Alchemy will not be required to remove any printed materials from circulation. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer’s right to use the Alchemy Cloud Services under a particular Order Form is based upon the terms and conditions of that Order Form in addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Accordingly, upon the expiration or termination of an Order Form, Customer’s (and its Users’) right to use the Services under that Order Form will also terminate.
10.7 Survival. Sections 1, 3.5(b), 3.7, 5, 6, 7.3, 8, 9, 10, and 11 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
11.1 Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the law of a different state. Each party hereby consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts serving the State of California. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
11.2 Export; Anti-Corruption. Each party shall comply with the export laws and regulations of the United States and other applicable jurisdictions in providing and using the Alchemy Cloud Services. Without limiting the foregoing, (i) each party represents that it is not named on any U.S. government list of persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports, and (ii) Customer shall not permit Users to access or use Alchemy Cloud Services in violation of any U.S. export embargo, prohibition or restriction. Customer represents that it has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from any of Alchemy’s employees or agents in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction. If Customer learns of any violation of the above restriction, Customer will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify Alchemy.
11.3 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Agreement will remain enforceable and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
11.4 Waiver; Remedies. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. Other than as expressly stated herein, the remedies provided herein are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any other remedies of a party at law or in equity.
11.5 Entire Agreement. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, this Agreement, together with the documents referenced herein and all Order Forms and Statements of Work executed hereunder, constitute the entire agreement between the parties as to its subject matter, and supersede all previous and contemporaneous agreements, (including without limitation any nondisclosure agreements previously executed by the parties), proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning the subject matter of this Agreement. No representation, undertaking or promise shall be taken to have been given or be implied from anything said or written in negotiations between the parties prior to this Agreement except as expressly stated in this Agreement. Neither party shall have any remedy in respect of any untrue statement made by the other upon which that party relied in entering into this Agreement (unless such untrue statement was made fraudulently) and that party’s only remedy in respect of any untrue statement shall be for breach of contract as provided in this Agreement. Customer acknowledges and agrees that its agreement hereunder is not contingent upon the delivery of any future functionality or features not specified herein or in an Order Form or dependent upon any oral or written, public or private comments made by Alchemy with respect to future functionality or features for the Alchemy Cloud Services. In the event of any conflict between the provisions in this Agreement and any Order Form or Statement of Work, the terms of such Order Form or Statement of Work shall prevail. No terms or conditions stated in a Customer purchase order or in any other Customer order documentation shall be incorporated into or form any part of this Agreement, and all such terms or conditions shall be null and void.
11.6 Attorney’s Fees. Customer shall pay on demand all of Alchemy’s reasonable attorney fees and other costs incurred by Alchemy to enforce this Agreement or to collect any fees or charges due to Alchemy under this Agreement following Customer’s breach of its payment obligations under this Agreement or any Order Form.
11.7 No Assignment. Neither party will assign, subcontract, delegate, or otherwise transfer this Agreement, or its rights and obligations herein, without obtaining the prior written consent of the other party, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void; provided, however, that either party may assign this Agreement in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or change of control, including without limitation a sale of all or substantially all of its assets, stock or business to which this Agreement relates. The terms of this Agreement will be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
11.8 Force Majeure. Any delay in the performance of any duties or obligations of either party (except the payment of money owed) will not be considered a breach of this Agreement if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, or any other event beyond the control of such party (“Force Majeure Events”), provided that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to notify the other party of the cause of such delay and to resume performance as soon as possible.
11.9 Independent Contractors. Alchemy’s relationship to Customer is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. Neither party will have, and will not represent to any third party that it has, any authority to act on behalf of the other.
11.10 Notices. All notices under this Agreement shall be in writing. All notices shall be given (i) by delivery in person (ii) by a nationally recognized next day courier service, (iii) by first class, registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, (iv) by facsimile or (v) by electronic mail to the address of the party specified in this Agreement or an Order Form. All notices shall be effective upon (i) receipt by the party to which notice is given, (ii) the second (2nd) day following sending by electronic mail or facsimile, or (iii) on the fifth (5th) day following mailing, whichever occurs first. Each party may change its address for receipt of notice by giving notice of such change to the other party.
11.11 Counterparts; Electronic Signatures. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original and all of which will be taken together and deemed to be one instrument. A manually or electronically signed copy of this Agreement, any Order Form or any Statement of Work delivered by facsimile, e-mail or other means of electronic transmission shall be deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original signed copy of the Agreement, the Order Form or Statement of Work.
a. Subject to the restrictions in this Section 11.12 (Modifications), Alchemy may modify these Terms, the Professional Services Terms, and the Service Level Agreement. If Alchemy modifies these Terms, the Professional Services Terms, and the Service Level Agreement, it will provide prior written notice ( “Modification Notice”) to Customer of such modifications at least 30 days prior to the effectiveness of the modifications. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, Alchemy may not provide prior notice if modifications are necessary to comply with applicable laws, rules, regulations or guidelines but will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide prior notice when practicable. If the modifications materially and adversely affect Customer, and Customer does not wish to accept such modifications, then Customer may terminate Customer’s subscription to the affected Alchemy Cloud Services or Professional Services, as applicable, by written notice to Alchemy within the 30-day period following the date of the Modification Notice, subject to the terms of this Section 11.12 (Modifications).
b. If the Modification Notice states that the modifications will become effective upon commencement of a renewal Subscription Term, then the modifications will become effective for all Alchemy Cloud Services or Professional Services, as applicable, affected by the changes upon renewal of the applicable Subscription Term. Customer may avoid the applicability of the changes only by cancelling the renewal of the SubscriptionTerm prior to the commencement of the renewal Subscription Term.
c. If the Modification Notice states that the modifications will become effective during the then-current Subscription Term, then Customer may terminate Customer’s subscription to the affected Alchemy Cloud Service or Professional Services, as applicable, at any time within the 30-day period following the date of the Modification Notice. Customer’s termination will become effective on the later to occur of (i) the date on which Customer delivers the termination notice, or (ii) the date on which the applicable modifications become effective; provided, that in each instance Alchemy shall provide Customer with a data file in an industry standard form of the Customer Inputs as of the date of termination. If Customer terminates an Alchemy Cloud Service subscription pursuant to this Section 11.12(c), then Alchemy shall refund Customer a pro rata amount of any prepaid Alchemy Cloud Service subscription fees applicable to the unused portion of the Subscription Term for the terminated Alchemy Cloud Services (excluding any activation or other one-time fees).
d. If Customer does not terminate the affected Alchemy Cloud Service subscription as specified in this Section 11.12 (Modifications), then Customer will be bound by the modified terms beginning upon the effective date set forth in the Modification Notice.
11.13 Federal Government End Use Provisions. Alchemy provides the Alchemy Cloud Services, including related software and technology, for ultimate federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: Government technical data and software rights related to the Services include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement. This customary commercial license is provided in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Software) and, for Department of Defense transactions, DFAR 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) and DFAR 227.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Alchemy Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not conveyed under these terms, it must negotiate with Alchemy to determine if there are acceptable terms for transferring such rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically conveying such rights must be included in any applicable contract or agreement.
11.14 Construction. The titles of the sections of this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and are not to be considered in construing this Agreement.

Service Level Agreement
March 15, 2019
This Alchemy Service Level Agreement (“Service Level Agreement”) outlines the service level performance targets applicable to the Alchemy Cloud Services. For the avoidance of doubt, this Service Level Agreement does not apply to Beta Versions. This Service Level Agreement is subject to the Terms of Service and all defined terms used herein shall have the meaning accorded to such terms in the Terms unless otherwise defined herein.
1.1 “Downtime” means that the Alchemy Cloud Services are offline and unavailable for the Customer’s use. Downtime excludes downtime and unavailability resulting directly or indirectly from any Service Level Exclusion.
1.2 “Monthly Uptime Percentage” means the total number of minutes in a calendar month minus the number of minutes of Downtime suffered in such calendar month, divided by the total number of minutes in the calendar month. The applicable formula is:
Monthly Uptime Percentage = (Total Minutes in Month) – (Total Minutes of Downtime) / (Total Minutes In Month)) X 100
For any partial calendar month during which the applicable Customer has access to the Alchemy Cloud Services, the Monthly Uptime Percentage shall be calculated based on the entire calendar month, not just the portion for which the Customer has access to the Alchemy Cloud Services. The determination of whether the Alchemy Cloud Services is available will be made in good faith by Alchemy based on monitoring performed by Alchemy.
1.3 “Service Level Credit” means the credit provided by Alchemy in accordance with Section 2 (Subscription Service Availability and Credits) below.
1.4 “Service Level Exclusions” Downtime does not include unavailability, suspension or termination of the Alchemy Cloud Services that result from: (a) termination or suspension of the Alchemy Cloud Services described in Section 10.4 (Suspension of Services) of the Terms of Service; (b) factors outside of Alchemy’s reasonable control, including force majeure events, denial of service attacks, or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of Alchemy and its third-party hosting providers; (c) any actions or inactions of Customer or any third party; (d) Customer infrastructure, equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology or Customer’s use of the Alchemy Cloud Services in a manner inconsistent with the Documentation; (e) any scheduled or emergency maintenance of the Alchemy Cloud Services; (f) Alchemy’s suspension and termination of a Customer’s right to use the Alchemy Cloud Services in accordance with the Agreement; or (g) license restrictions or other limitations as set forth in each Order Form.
2. Subscription Service Availability and Credits
2.1 Service Levels. Alchemy will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Alchemy Cloud Services available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage of at least 99.5% during any calendar month (the “Availability Service Level”). In the event Alchemy does not meet the Standard Availability Service Level (a “Service Level Failure”), Customer will be eligible to receive a Service Level Credit as described below.
2.2 Calculation of the Credit. Service Level Credits are calculated by multiplying (x) the applicable Service Level Credit Percentage by (y) the product of the total annual Subscription Fees (as defined in an Order Form) actually paid by Customer to Alchemy for the Alchemy Cloud Services under an affected Order Form divided by twelve (12) months.
2.3 Maximum Service Level Credit. The Service Level Credits awarded in any month shall not, under any circumstance, exceed thirty percent (30%) of the total Subscription Fees actually paid by Customer to Alchemy for access to the Alchemy Cloud Services under the affected Order Form for the affected month.
3. Service Level Credit Request and Payment Procedures
3.1 Requesting a Service Level Credit. To receive a Service Level Credit, Customer must submit a claim by email to SLAcredit@alchemy.cloud (a “Service Level Credit Request”). To be eligible, the Service Level Credit Request must be received by Alchemy within thirty (30) days of the occurrence of the Service Level Failure and must include: (a) the words “Service Level Credit Request” in the subject line; and (b) the dates and times of each Service Level Failure that Customer is claiming, including the dates and times of the Downtime that caused the Service Level Failure.
3.2 Issuance of Service Level Credits. If the Monthly Uptime Percentage of such request is confirmed by Alchemy and is less than the applicable Availability Service Level, then Alchemy will issue the Service Level Credit to Customer within thirty (30) days following the month in which Customer’s request is confirmed by Alchemy. Customer’s failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify Customer from receiving a Service Level Credit. Alchemy will notify Customer of the amount of any Service Level Credit, which shall be applied against future amounts owed by Customer. Service Level Credits will not entitle Customer to any refund or other payment from Alchemy. Service Level Credits are not payable in cash and will only be applied against future amounts owed by Customer to Alchemy.
3.3 Sole and Exclusive Remedy. The Service Level Credit is Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and Alchemy’s sole and exclusive liability for any Downtime, unavailability, non-performance, or other failures by Alchemy to provide the Alchemy Cloud Services.
Professional Services Terms
March 15, 2019
Please note that our Professional Services Terms were updated on March 15, 2019, and that the updated terms will apply to your purchase of Alchemy Cloud, Inc. (“Alchemy”) professional services made after March 15, 2019.
These Professional Services Terms, together with the Terms of Service any applicable Order Form(s) and applicable Supplemental Terms (collectively, the “Agreement”) constitute a binding agreement between Alchemy and Customer (each, a “Party”) under which Alchemy provides Customer Professional Services. Customer accepts and agrees to be bound by these Professional Services Terms by executing an Order Form and/or Statement of Work that references these Professional Services Terms or by receiving the Professional Services.
1. PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
1.1 Professional Services. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Professional Services Terms, Alchemy will use commercially reasonable efforts to perform the services set forth in all Order Forms and Statements of Work (as defined below) subsequently executed by the parties (the “Professional Services”). Each Order Form and Statement of Work shall incorporate by reference these Professional Services Terms. Alchemy will perform the Professional Services in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with professional industry standards of quality and integrity. As Customer’s sole remedy and Alchemy’s sole liability for any breach of the foregoing warranty, Alchemy will reperform any nonconforming Professional Services without charge. Other than the applicable fees set forth in the Order Form and/or Statement of Work, as applicable, and any applicable Change Order or amendment to the Order Form and/or Statement of Work, as applicable, no additional cost or expense shall be required of Customer in order for Alchemy to be able to provide the Professional Services as required under the Order Form and/or Statement of Work, as applicable.
1.2 Issuance of Statements of Work. Customer may request and propose in writing that Alchemy perform certain Professional Services, and one or both parties, as determined by Alchemy, in its sole discretion, will prepare either (a) an Order Form or (b) a draft work statement in response thereto (each, a “Statement of Work”). All Order Forms and Statements of Work for Professional Services will reference these Professional Services Terms and will set forth: (i) the scope of the Professional Services, and to the extent possible, the applicable deliverables to be provided by Alchemy thereunder; (ii) any applicable timeline and (iii) the applicable fees payable by Customer to Alchemy for the Professional Services to be provided by Alchemy thereunder. No Order Form or Statements of Work, regardless of whether it relates to the same subject matter as any previously executed Order Forms or Statements of Work, will become effective, and Alchemy will have no obligation to perform any Professional Services proposed thereunder until executed by authorized representatives of both parties.
1.3 Change Orders. Customer may at any time request a modification to the Professional Services to be performed pursuant to any particular Order Form or Statement of Work by delivering a written request to Alchemy signed by a Customer representative, specifying the desired modifications (a “Change Request”). Alchemy will, within a reasonable time following receipt of a signed Change Request, submit to Customer a written: (i) detailed description of the requested modifications agreed to by Alchemy; (ii) estimate of the fees for the requested modifications agreed to by Alchemy; and (iii) revised estimate of the time for performance of the Professional Services pursuant to the Order Form or Statements of Work (collectively, a "Change Order"). No Change Order will become effective, and Alchemy will have no obligation to perform the Professional Services as modified by the Change Order, until executed by authorized representatives of both parties.
1.4 Delays. If either party is aware or becomes aware, of a delay that will prevent Alchemy from meeting any scheduled milestone, such party will promptly inform the other in writing of the delay and the reason, therefore. If such delay is caused by Customer, the project schedule will automatically be deemed extended for the applicable service or deliverable and all subsequent services or deliverables, if and to the extent necessitated by the original delay. If such delay is caused by Alchemy, Alchemy will use proactive and reasonable efforts to complete the delayed service or deliverable.
2.1 Suitability. Alchemy will assign employees and consultants with qualifications suitable for the work described in the relevant Order Form or Statement of Work, as applicable. Alchemy may replace or change employees and consultants in its sole discretion with other suitably qualified employees or consultants. Should Customer be reasonably dissatisfied with the performance of an Alchemy employee or consultant, Customer may request the replacement of that person; provided, however, before Alchemy shall be required to remove such individual, Alchemy shall have a reasonable opportunity to remedy such situation to the reasonable satisfaction with the Customer.
2.2 Customer Responsibilities. Customer will make available in a timely manner, at no charge to Alchemy, all technical data, computer facilities, programs, files, documentation, test data, sample output, or other information and resources required by Alchemy, as well as all office space, services and equipment (such as copiers and broadband Internet access) as Alchemy reasonably requires to perform the Professional Services. Customer will be responsible for and assumes the risk of, any problems resulting from the content, accuracy, completeness, consistency, facilitation, or provision thereof to Alchemy by Customer.
2.3 Configuration Information. Customer will name a subject matter expert and business owner for every team and the Customer’s SMEs will provide to Alchemy, per a mutually agreed to timeline, the information required for Alchemy to perform the Professional Services and deploy the Alchemy Cloud Services. This information will include but not be limited to processes to be digitized, the workflows of these processes including the logic to get from step to step, forms to be digitized, tests to be digitized, data to be captured. Additionally, the Customer’s business owner will provide the names and emails of all users, access rights and permissions for each user and for each team and such other information reasonably required by Alchemy to configure and deploy the Alchemy Cloud Services.
3. FEES AND PAYMENTS. In consideration of the Professional Services, Customer will pay, and Alchemy will be compensated at, the rates outlined in the applicable Order Form or Statement of Work. If mutually agreed and provided for in the applicable SOW, Customer will also reimburse Alchemy for: (i) all reasonable travel and living expenses incurred by Alchemy’s employees and contractors for travel from Alchemy’s offices; and (ii) any other expenses agreed to as part of the applicable Order Form or Statement of Work. Except as provided above, each party will be responsible for its own expenses incurred in rendering performance under each Order Form and Statement of Work, including without limitation the cost of infrastructure, facilities, workspace, computers and computer time, development tools and platforms, utility management, personnel, supplies and the like.
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Order Form or Statement of Work or Change Order, each term thereof will last until performance thereunder is completed. Upon such termination: (i) Alchemy will wind up and preserve their work in a commercially reasonable manner; (ii) subject to Customer’s payment of all fees due and payable for Professional Services, Alchemy will collect and deliver all work in progress, provided that Alchemy will have no obligation to transfer to Customer, unless otherwise expressly agreed to in writing by the parties, any Confidential Information or Intellectual Property Rights of Alchemy related to the Professional Services provided hereunder; and (iii) Alchemy will inform Customer of the extent to which performance hereunder has been completed through the date of termination. Customer will pay Alchemy all amounts due and payable for Professional Services performed through the date of termination.
4.2 Survival. The provisions of Sections 3 through 5 will survive the expiration or termination of an Order Form or Statement of Work for Professional Services.
5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
5.1 Work Product. The term “Work Product” means any original software, documentation, reports, designs, specifications, works of authorship and data that are created by Alchemy personnel in the course of Alchemy’s performance of the Professional Services, including original computer software, algorithms and related documentation created under and to be delivered pursuant to an Order Form or Statement of Work. Unless otherwise set forth in a Statement of Work, all Work Product, and all Intellectual Property Rights in the Work Product, will be owned by Alchemy. Subject to Customer’s payment of all applicable fees for the Professional Services, Alchemy grants Customer a royalty-free, non-exclusive, nontransferable, revocable, limited license for the Term of the Agreement to use the Work Product solely with the Alchemy Cloud Services.

10. GOVERNING LAW; ARBITRATION; JURY TRIAL WAIVER; CLASS ACTION WAIVER; FORUM SELECTION CLAUSE.
These Terms and the relationship between you and Alchemy shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of laws principles that would require the application of the laws of a different country or state. You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of California for the adjudication of any and all claims arising out of your use of the Site and your relationship with Alchemy, and you waive any objection thereto.
Any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action) between you and Alchemy or Alchemy’s employees, agents, successors, or assigns, will exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration. Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (" AAA"). As modified by this Agreement, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively " Rules and Procedures"). You are thus GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and Alchemy must abide by the following rules: (a) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR ALCHEMY MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIE’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (b) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF, (c) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Alchemy will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (d) Alchemy also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (e) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (f) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (g) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (h) each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and then in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Alchemy may bring an individual action in small claims court. Further, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret will not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims will be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in San Francisco, CA. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in San Francisco, CA in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within San Francisco, CA for such purposes. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate. With the exception of subparts (a) and (b) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (a) or (b) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void, and neither you nor Alchemy will be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute will be exclusively brought in state or federal court in San Francisco, CA. For more information on AAA, its Rules and Procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.
11. ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS. You consent to our giving you Communications (defined below) electronically. This Section 11 informs you of your rights when receiving Communications from us electronically. For contractual purposes, you (i) consent to receive Communications from us in an electronic form; and (ii) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, documents, disclosures, and other communications ("Communications") that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such Communications would satisfy if they were in writing. Your consent to receive Communications and do business electronically, and our agreement to do so, applies to all of your interactions and transactions with us. The foregoing does not affect your non-savable rights. You may also receive a copy of these Terms by accessing this Site. You may withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically by contacting us in the manner described below. If you withdraw your consent, from that time forward, you must stop using the Site. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the legal validity and enforceability of any obligations or any electronic Communications provided or business transacted between us prior to the time you withdraw your consent. Please keep us informed of any changes in your email or mailing address so that you continue to receive all Communications without interruption.
12. GENERAL TERMS. You are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws. These Terms are personal to you, and you may not transfer, assign or delegate your rights and/or duties under these Terms to anyone else and any attempted assignment or delegation is void. You acknowledge that we have the right hereunder to seek an injunction, if necessary, to stop or prevent a breach of your obligations hereunder. The paragraph headings in these Terms, shown in boldface type, are included only to help make these Terms easier to read and have no binding effect. Any delay or failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver by us will have effect unless such waiver is set forth in writing, signed by us; nor will any such waiver of any breach or default constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. These Terms constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all prior oral or written understandings, communications or agreements. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the Terms will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. Where Alchemy has provided you with a translation of the English language version of the Terms, and/or any other documentation, you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions will govern.
13. CONTACTING US; NOTICE; VIOLATIONS. If you have any questions or concerns about our Site, your registration, or anything else, please click on the Contact Us page on the Site, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We may give notice to you by email, a posting on the Site, or other reasonable means. You must give notice to us in writing via email to email@example.com or as otherwise expressly provided.

How You Can Opt Out of Web Tracking. There are several ways to opt out of web tracking: Most browsers allow you to block third-party cookies or prevent cross-domain tracking. This will limit the cookies that can be set by third-party scripts. This will not completely eliminate tracking by some third-party services though as they may use first-party cookies. Most browsers also allow you ask not to be tracked (it sends the "Do Not Track" request header). If you have enabled this feature, we will not track the pages you visit in a way that enables us to connect them to your personal information. Your page views may still be collected anonymously though. Many of the third-party services we use for collecting anonymous data also respect the Do Not Track setting.
