1. Service Level
|eMaint provides 24-hour access to its web-based eMaint Online hosted application, and users may access their eMaint Online account any time. Availability of eMaint Online may be hampered by circumstances and events beyond eMaint’s reasonable control, such as power outages, disruptions along Internet pathways, or a force majeure.|
eMaint monitors its servers and website availability continuously during the business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Upon discovery of service disruptions due to server-related issues, eMaint will notify immediately its third-party web hosting provider(s) and will work with the third-party provider(s) to resolve any issue(s) as quickly as possible so as to minimize any disruptions of service to eMaint customers. Should an unplanned service outage occur during the business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, and should such an outage result in the service being unavailable for more than 2 consecutive hours, eMaint will notify its customers, via email, of the disruption in service and of the steps eMaint and/or its third-party provider(s) is taking to resolve the matter. Service outages that are reported to eMaint by eMaint customers will be investigated immediately, and eMaint will inform the customer, via email, of the resolution of the matter.
For planned outages, such as for server upgrades or maintenance, eMaint will notify, via email, its customers of a disruption in service at least 48 hours in advance of the planned outage.

7. Charges and Payment of Fees
|You shall pay all fees or charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. The initial charges will be equal to the current number of total User licenses requested times the User license fee currently in effect. Payments must be made annually in advance unless otherwise mutually agreed upon in an Order Form. All payment obligations are noncancelable and all amounts paid are nonrefundable. You are responsible for paying for all User licenses ordered for the entire License Term, whether or not such User licenses are actively used. You must provide eMaint with valid credit card or approved purchase order information as a condition to signing up for the Service. An authorized License Administrator may add licenses by executing an additional written Order Form or using the ‘Add New User’ feature in the Service. Added licenses will be subject to the following: (i) added licenses will be coterminous with the preexisting License Term (either Initial Term or renewal term); (ii) the license fee for the added licenses will be the then current, generally applicable license fee; and (iii) licenses added in the middle of a billing month will be charged in full for that billing month. eMaint reserves the right to modify its fees and charges and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to you, which notice may be provided by e-mail. All pricing terms are confidential, and you agree not to disclose them to any third party.|
8. Contingency, Backup and Disaster Recovery
|eMaint performs data backups of all paying customers’ eMaint Online account data. The servers’ data backup procedure typically occurs between the hours of 12 midnight and 2 a.m. Eastern Time, seven days a week. During the backup process, you may incur a momentary pause (up to 90 seconds) should you be accessing your data at the precise moment the backup of your account data is taking place. Backup functions on other client data will have no effect on your access to your data. In the event that a web server ceases to function or that data files become corrupt, a system restore from backup will be performed, with every reasonable attempt being made to recover lost data. In the event that such a system restore from backup is required, eMaint will seek to have the system fully operational and back on-line within 48 hours. eMaint will notify its customers, via email, that such a procedure is taking place and will inform customers of the estimated date and time that the server is due to be operational.|
9. Billing and Renewal
|eMaint charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. eMaint will automatically renew and bill your credit card or issue an invoice to you each year on the subsequent anniversary or as otherwise mutually agreed upon. The renewal charge will be equal to the then-current number of total User licenses times the license fee in effect during the prior term, unless eMaint has given you at least 30 days prior written notice of a fee increase, which shall be effective upon renewal and thereafter. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. eMaint’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on eMaint’s income.|
You agree to provide eMaint with complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes your legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact and License Administrator. You agree to update this information within 30 days of any change to it. If the contact information you have provided is false or fraudulent, eMaint reserves the right to terminate your access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies.
Unless eMaint in its discretion determines otherwise, all entities will be billed in U.S. dollars and be subject to U.S. payment terms and pricing schemes at the discretion of eMaint.
If you believe your bill is incorrect, you must contact us in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.
10. Non-Payment and Suspension
|In addition to any other rights granted to eMaint herein, eMaint reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service if your account becomes delinquent (falls into arrears). Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.0% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. You will continue to be charged for User licenses during any period of suspension. If you or eMaint initiates termination of this Agreement, you will be obligated to pay the balance due on your account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. You agree that eMaint may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees.|
eMaint reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event you are suspended and thereafter request access to the Service. You agree and acknowledge that eMaint has no obligation to retain Customer Data and that such Customer Data may be irretrievably deleted if your account is 30 days or more delinquent.
11. Termination upon Expiration/Reduction in Number of Licenses
|This Agreement commences on the Effective Date of your use of the Service. The Initial Term will be as you elect during the online subscription process or as otherwise mutually agreed upon in an Order Form. Upon the expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement will automatically renew for successive renewal terms equal in duration to the Initial Term (or one year, if the Initial Term is greater than one year) at eMaint’s then current fees. Either party may terminate this Agreement or reduce the number of licenses, effective only upon the expiration of the then current License Term, by notifying the other party in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the then current License Term. In the case of free trials, notifications provided through the Service indicating the remaining number of days in the free trial shall constitute notice of termination. In the event this Agreement is terminated (other than by reason of your breach), eMaint will make available to you a file of the Customer Data within 30 days of termination if you so request at the time of termination. You agree and acknowledge that eMaint has no obligation to retain the Customer Data, and may delete such Customer Data, more than 30 days after termination.|
