4.7. Audit Rights. Verb shall have the right to audit Customer’s compliance with this Agreement at any time during the SaaS Platform Term. Customer shall cooperate following any reasonable request by Verb in connection with such audit. If Verb determines that Customer has allowed access to the Services other than as permitted under this Agreement or any Order Form or has otherwise violated any applicable terms hereof or thereof, and as a result additional Fees are owed to Verb, Verb shall invoice Customer for such discrepancies and such Fees shall be payable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The results of any audit shall not limit any other rights or remedies of Verb.
5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
5.1 Verb’s Ownership.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Verb shall have the right to collect and analyze data and other information relating to the provision, use, and performance of various aspects of the Services and related systems and technologies including, without limitation, information concerning Customer Data and data derived therefrom, and Verb will be free to (i) use such information and data to improve and enhance the Services and for other development, diagnostic and corrective purposes in connection with the Services and other Verb oﬀerings, and (ii) disclose such data solely in aggregate or other de-identiﬁed form in connection with its business.

No other rights or implied licenses in Customer Materials are granted to Verb other than as expressly set forth herein.
6.1. Definition of Confidential Information. As used herein, “Conﬁdential Information” means all conﬁdential information disclosed by a Party (“Discloser“) to the other Party (“Recipient“), 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. Customer Conﬁdential Information will include, but is not limited to, Customer Data and Customer Materials; Verb Conﬁdential Information includes, but is not limited to, the SaaS Platform, information or technology used in connection with the Services, this Agreement and all Order Forms; and Conﬁdential Information of each Discloser includes Discloser’s non-public business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes. Conﬁdential Information does not include any information that (a) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to Discloser, (b) was known to Recipient prior to its disclosure by Discloser without breach of any obligation owed to Discloser, (c) is received from a third party without any obligation of conﬁdentiality, or (d) was independently developed by Recipient without reference to or use of Discloser’s Conﬁdential Information.
6.2. Protection of Confidential Information. The Recipient agrees: (a) to take reasonable precautions to protect such Conﬁdential Information, and (b) not to use (except in performance of the Services or as otherwise permitted herein) or divulge to any third person any such Conﬁdential Information. The Discloser agrees that the foregoing shall not apply with respect to any information after ﬁve (5) years following the disclosure thereof. Except as otherwise permitted in writing by Discloser, Recipient will (i) use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the conﬁdentiality of its own Conﬁdential Information of like kind (but in no event less than reasonable care) and use Discloser’s Conﬁdential Information only for purposes of this Agreement, and (ii) limit access to Conﬁdential Information of Discloser to those of its employees, contractors and agents who need such access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have agreed to conﬁdentiality obligations with Recipient that are no less stringent than those herein.
6.3. Protection of Customer Data. Without limiting the above, Verb will maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards designed to protect the security and conﬁdentiality of Customer Data. Except (a) in order to provide the Services, (b) to prevent or address service or technical problems in connection with support matters, or (c) as expressly permitted in writing by Customer, Verb will not modify Customer Data or disclose Customer Data (unless compelled by law in accordance with Section 6.4. (Authorized Disclosure)).
6.4. Authorized Disclosure. If Recipient is compelled by law, regulation, or a court of competent jurisdiction to disclose any of Discloser’s Conﬁdential Information, to the extent permitted by law, Recipient will promptly notify Discloser so that it may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy. Recipient agrees to cooperate at Discloser’s expense in seeking such order or other remedy. If disclosure is ultimately required, Recipient will furnish only that portion of the Conﬁdential Information that is legally required, exercise reasonable eﬀorts to obtain assurance that it will receive conﬁdential treatment and continue to treat such Conﬁdential Information in accordance with its obligations under this Section. Each Party may disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement: (a) on a conﬁdential basis to legal or ﬁnancial advisors; (b) pursuant to reports, applications or similar ﬁlings submitted to regulatory agencies and governing authorities as required by applicable law; or (c) on a conﬁdential basis in connection with any ﬁnancing transaction or due diligence inquiry.
6.5. Return of Confidential Information. Each Receiving Party will destroy or return to Disclosing Party all Conﬁdential Information of Discloser that Recipient possesses upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement; provided, however, that to the extent that copies of Conﬁdential Information are contained in Recipient’s oﬀ-site backup data storage archives and are not readily accessible for deletion, Recipient will not be obligated to delete such copies so long as it does not willfully attempt to access such Conﬁdential Information and continues to comply with the conﬁdentiality restrictions set forth herein.

Verb warrants that (a) the SaaS Platform will perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation made available to Customer, (b) the functionality of the SaaS Platform will not be materially decreased during the SaaS Platform Term and (c) the Professional Services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner. Verb shall use reasonable eﬀorts consistent with prevailing industry standards to maintain the Services in a manner which minimizes errors and interruptions in the Services. The SaaS Platform may be temporarily unavailable for scheduled maintenance or for unscheduled emergency maintenance, either by Verb or by third-party providers, or because of other causes beyond Verb’s reasonable control, but Verb shall use reasonable eﬀorts to provide notice in writing or by e-mail of any unscheduled maintenance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Order Form has a SaaS Platform Term of more than twelve (12) months, in the event Verb determines to materially change or cease oﬀering any material element of the Services, Verb may eﬀect such change or cessation following reasonable notice thereof to Customer and the relevant Order Form shall be amended to reﬂect such change.

Verb shall hold Customer harmless from liability to third parties to the extent resulting from infringement by the Services of any United States patent or any copyright or misappropriation of any trade secret, provided Verb is promptly notiﬁed of any and all threats, claims and proceedings related thereto and given reasonable assistance and the opportunity to assume sole control over defense and settlement; Verb will not be responsible for any settlement it does not approve in writing. The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to portions or components of the Services (a) not supplied by Verb, (b) made in whole or in part in accordance with Customer speciﬁcations, (c) that are modiﬁed after delivery by Verb and not made by Verb, (d) combined with other products, processes, or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (e) where Customer continues allegedly infringing activity after being notiﬁed thereof or after being informed of and provided modiﬁcations that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (f) where Customer’s use of the Services is not strictly in accordance with this Agreement. If, due to a claim of infringement, the Services are held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be or are believed by Verb to be infringing, Verb may, at its option and expense (i) replace or modify the Services to be non-infringing provided that such modiﬁcation or replacement contains substantially similar features and functionality, (ii) obtain for Customer a license to continue using the Services, or (iii) if neither of the foregoing is commercially practicable, terminate this Agreement and Customer’s rights hereunder and provide Customer a refund of any prepaid, unused fees for the Services.
