1. License


1.1 In addition to Section 2.2 of the GTC, Dripcel grants the Customer a personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-assignable license to use the Service through its Product Users in object code form and to make the Product available to End Users, all in accordance with this Agreement and the applicable Documentation for the Term of the Agreement.


1.2 Regarding Test Accounts, if applicable, the Customer is granted a restricted, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use the Service solely for non-productive testing, evaluation, and demonstration purposes during a test term, subject to the Customer’s ongoing compliance with this Agreement. It is understood that no fees are charged to Customers during the test term. The scope of the Customer’s right to use the Service will be determined by Dripcel at its sole discretion and is limited to the Features and Functionalities available in the Test Account of the Product. Dripcel reserves the right to modify the scope of the Customer’s rights at any time.

2. Add Ons


2.1. The specific Features and Functionalities of the Service are detailed in the Order Form. Should the Customer wish to utilize additional Features and Functionalities beyond what is agreed upon with Dripcel, the Customer may request to purchase Add-Ons at any time. A new Order Form must be signed by both Parties for these Add-Ons. Upon request, Dripcel will inform the Customer of the available Add-Ons and their respective costs.


2.2. Dripcel reserves the right to retroactively charge for any usage of additional Features and Functionalities that exceed the amounts or volume specified in the relevant Order Form. In such cases, Dripcel will issue a correcting invoice, which the Customer must pay in accordance with the payment terms outlined in the Agreement.

3.1. Unless the Customer requests Customized Services for activation, installation, or setup as specified in Section 3.2 below, the Customer is responsible for performing the necessary activation, installation, setup, or software development work to install and integrate the Product into the Customer’s systems. Any such installation or integration must be in accordance with the Documentation or other written instructions provided by Dripcel.


3.2. The Customer may request Dripcel to provide Customized Services, and Dripcel may agree to do so at its discretion. In such cases, the Parties will enter into a Statement of Work that details the scope of the Customized Services and the applicable fees, which may be based on time and materials or a fixed price as agreed upon. These Customized Services will be provided in accordance with this Agreement and the relevant Statement of Work.


3.3. Customized Services are delivered “as is” and are considered accepted by the Customer upon delivery by Dripcel.

4. Customer Data


4.1. The Customer acknowledges that the Product incorporates specific algorithms and artificial intelligence, and for optimal and seamless functioning, it is the Customer’s responsibility to provide adequate Customer Data. Except for data input by End Users, only Product Users may input Customer Data, adhering to the guidelines set forth in the Documentation.


4.2. The Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy and correctness of Customer Data. Dripcel is not liable for any damages or liabilities resulting from incorrect Customer Data entered into the Product.

Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, Dripcel may retain limited plain text snippets of Customer Data solely for technical reasons related to the Product’s functionality. These text snippets will be held in strict confidence and not disclosed to third parties. If these snippets contain Customer Personal Data, Dripcel will anonymize or pseudonymize them to the fullest extent possible.


4.4. The Customer warrants that the Customer Data does not infringe on any third party’s intellectual property rights or other legal rights and does not violate any applicable laws, statutes, or regulations in any jurisdiction.


4.5. The Customer acknowledges and agrees to be solely responsible for the Customer Data distributed or accessible through the Product. Dripcel is not responsible or liable for any such Customer Data.

4.6. The Customer agrees that any violation of this Section 4 allows Dripcel, at its sole discretion, to (i) immediately terminate or suspend access to and use of the Product for material breach without any formalities and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to Dripcel under this Agreement or applicable law; and/or (ii) immediately remove or block the offending Customer Data.



5. Third Party Components and Hosting


5.1. The Customer acknowledges that utilizing the Service requires appropriate hardware, networks, operating systems, data transmission lines, and suitable communication applications and environments.


5.2. The Customer agrees that using the Service may necessitate obtaining rights to use third-party software at the Customer’s expense.

If the Customer opts to license such software from Dripcel, the license agreement will be attached to the Order Form. Any third-party software licensed through Dripcel or included in the Service is governed exclusively by the applicable third-party software terms, and any warranties, indemnification, and support provided by Dripcel for the Service do not apply to such third-party software, unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Dripcel.


5.3. The Product will be hosted in datacentres operated by Dripcel’s Hosting Partners.

Upon receiving a ticket, Dripcel, at its sole discretion, will determine if the Incident is Out of Scope or not, and Dripcel’s classification will be final. Dripcel reserves the right to charge the Customer for costs incurred in investigating the nature of an Incident on a time and materials basis.


6.3. Maintenance Services do not cover Out of Scope Incidents. However, Product Users may pose questions about the Service, and Dripcel will respond in good faith without any binding commitment.
