Where payment by credit card is indicated in the Order Form, or You otherwise provide Reach with credit card information, You authorize Reach to bill such credit card (a) at the time that You order the Reach Service or other Professional Services set forth in the Order Form, (b) for any billing frequency otherwise established in the Order Form, and (c) at the time of any renewal, for the amount charged plus any applicable sales taxes for any renewed Subscription Term. If Reach, in its discretion, permits You to make payment using a method other than a credit card, Reach will invoice You at the time of the initial Order Form and thereafter on a monthly basis in advance of the relevant billing period, and all such amounts invoiced will be due within ten (10) days of Your receipt of Reach's invoice. Late payments shall be subject to a service charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum charge permitted by law, whichever is less.
4.2 Taxes. You shall pay all personal property, sales, use, value-added, withholding and similar taxes (other than taxes on Reach's net income) arising from the transactions described in these Terms, even if such amounts are not listed on an Order Form. To the extent You are exempt from sales or other taxes, You agree to provide Reach, upon request, with the appropriate exemption certificate.
4.3 Non-Payment; Other Suspension Rights. Reach may terminate the Reach Service if the billing or contact information provided by You is false or fraudulent. Reach also reserves the right, in its discretion, to suspend or cancel Your access and/or use of the Reach Service: (i) where any payment is due but unpaid under any Order Form or account associated with You and You have been requested but failed to promptly cure such payment failure; or (ii) in the event a dispute arises on Your account as to who at Your business has authority to act or manage Your account and Reach is not promptly provided with written instructions from the interested parties associated with Your account that fully resolves the dispute. You acknowledge and agree that it a dispute arises as to management of Your account, then (i) if the listed owner of the account is a corporation, limited liability company or other registered entity, Reach may rely on public records (to the extent available) concerning the appropriate authorized executives or managers of Your entity; or (ii) if the listed owner is a dba or sole proprietorship, or any other entity for which public records of control are not readily accessible online, Reach may assume that the person or entity that has been making payments on Your account has the authority to manage the account. You agree that Reach shall not be liable to You nor to any third party for any suspension or cancellation of the Reach Service resulting from Your non-payment of Fees or from a dispute as to the management rights to Your account.
5.1 Confidential Information. For purposes of this Agreement, confidential information shall include the business terms in the Order Form, Your Data, the Reach Materials, and any information that is clearly identified in writing at the time of disclosure as confidential or that should be reasonably understood to be confidential by the receiving party given the nature of the information and the circumstances of its disclosure ("Confidential Information"). Each party agrees: (a) to receive and maintain in confidence all Confidential Information disclosed to it by the other party or by a third-party; (b) not to use the Confidential Information of the other party except to the extent necessary to perform its obligations or exercise rights hereunder; (c) to limit the internal dissemination of Confidential Information to those employees and contractors of the recipient who have a need to know and an obligation to protect it; and (d) to protect the confidentiality thereof in the same manner as it protects the confidentiality of similar information and data of its own (at all times exercising at least a reasonable degree of care in the protection of such Confidential Information). Reach will restrict its employees' access to Your Confidential Information to only those employees necessary as determined in Reach’s sole discretion to successfully provide the Reach Service. Reach may disclose Confidential Information on a need-to-know basis to its contractors who have executed written agreements requiring them to maintain such information in strict confidence and use it only to facilitate the performance of their services for Reach in connection with the performance of this Agreement. Except for personal information within Your Data which is at all times understood to be Confidential Information notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, Confidential Information shall not include information that: (1) is known publicly; (2) is generally known in the industry before disclosure; (3) has become known publicly, without fault of the recipient, subsequent to disclosure by the disclosing party; or (4) the recipient becomes aware of from a third party not bound by non-disclosure obligations to the disclosing party and with the lawful right to disclose such information to the recipient. This Section will not be construed to prohibit the disclosure of Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is required by law or order of a court or other governmental authority. The parties agree to give the other party prompt notice of the receipt of any subpoena or other similar request for such disclosure.
5.2 Credit Card Information. Reach agrees that it will retain and store any provided credit card information only for the minimum amount of time required for business, legal and/or regulatory purposes, and will use standard industry practices to protect such information from unauthorized access, disclosure or use.
5.3 Use of Names in Marketing. You may use Reach's name and credentials in an appropriate and acceptable manner for Your standard marketing promotions, provided that You agree to cease or alter such use at Reach's request where such use is contrary to Reach's branding policies, could cause any brand confusion in the market or is otherwise objectionable to Reach. Similarly, Reach may use Your business name in an appropriate and acceptable manner for standard marketing promotions, provided that Reach agrees to cease or alter such use at Your request where such use is contrary to Your branding policies, could cause any brand confusion in the market or is otherwise objectionable to You. Acceptable and standard marketing promotions include, but are not limited to: client listings, press releases, surveys, interviews, reputable business publications, television, and web site presentation and promotion, etc.

6.2 Notice of Non-Renewal. Either party may terminate the Subscription Term to an Reach Service by providing prior written notice of non-renewal to the other party at least 30 days prior to the end of the then-current Subscription Term. Reach's termination rights are in addition to any termination or suspension rights it may have under these Terms or any incorporated policy.
6.3 Effect of Termination. Upon termination of the Subscription Term, all Fees then due and payable to Reach must be paid in full. Contingent upon its receipt of all such Fees, Reach will continue to make Your Data available for downloading for 30 days after the termination date. Following this 30-day grace period, Reach may remove Your Data from the production environment for the Reach Service. The provisions of these Terms which by their nature are intended to survive expiration or termination, including but not limited to obligations concerning confidentiality, protection of intellectual property, indemnification and payment of unpaid Fees and expenses, shall survive any termination.
7.1 Limited Warranties.
7.2 Reach Not Responsible for Third Party Content. The Reach Service may be bundled by third parties (including but not limited to Reach marketing or content partners) with Third Party Content designed to facilitate use of the Reach Service in certain market niches or to customize the Reach Service for use by certain categories of target customers. To the extent that You either purchase the Reach Service from such third parties or acquire the Third Party Content or configuration services from such third parties (even though You may purchase the core Reach Service directly from Reach), Reach does not warrant in any manner and will not be responsible for such Third Party Content and You agree to look solely to the relevant third party provider (and not Reach) if and to the extent that You have any complaints or issues relating to the Third Party Content or its interaction with an Reach Service.

7.6 Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL REACH BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR OTHER LOSS ARISING OUT OF OR RESULTING FROM THIS AGREEMENT EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE FOREGOING SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY SOUNDS IN CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LEGAL LIABILITY. IN ADDITION, IN NO EVENT WILL REACH'S CUMULATIVE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO REACH DURING THE SIX MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE ALLEGED LIABILITY EVENT.
