If Lambda does not collect a Payment Method from Customer at the time of purchase, Lambda will invoice Customer for the charges at the email address on file with Lambda. Customer will pay all invoiced amounts within thirty (30) calendar days of the invoice date. Overdue invoices are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection including reasonable attorneys fees.
c. Taxes. Customer is solely responsible for the payment of all taxes, assessments, tariffs, duties, or other fees imposed, assessed, or collected by or under the authority of any governmental body arising from Lambda’s provision of the Services hereunder (collectively, “Taxes”), except any taxes assessed upon Lambda’s net income. Unless otherwise stated, Lambda’s pricing policies and invoices do not include and are not discounted or enhanced for any such Taxes. If Lambda is required to directly pay Taxes related to Customer’s use or receipt of any Services, Customer agrees to promptly reimburse Lambda for any amounts paid by Lambda. Customer shall provide Lambda with all reasonable information and documentation requested by Lambda regarding the taxes which are or were due (or which may be due) under this Agreement.
d. Credits. Lambda may, at its sole discretion, choose to offer credits for the Services in various ways, including but not limited to, coupons, promotional campaigns, prepaid credits and discretionary customer service fee adjustments. Lambda reserves the right to award credits at its sole discretion. Credits have no monetary or cash value, can only be used by Customer to offset Customer’s subsequent payments of Fees for the Services, and are revocable or subject to early expiration at any time and for any reason or no reason by Lambda, including for abuse, misrepresentation of account information, unauthorized transfer, or illegal conduct. Credits may only be applied to Fees due for the Services specifically identified by Lambda when issuing the credit and may be subject to other disclosures, terms and conditions presented to Customer at the time the Credit is issued. Credits can only be used by Customer and are non-transferable. Unless the instrument (including any coupon) states an earlier expiration date, credits shall expire and no longer be redeemable twelve (12) months from the date the credit was issued.

Additionally, unless otherwise agreed to on the Order Form, Customer grants Lambda a non-exclusive, revocable license to use Customer’s trademarks and logos to identify Customer as a subscriber of the Services. By submitting to Lambda any unsolicited suggestions, enhancement requests, comments, feedback or other input relating to the Services ("Feedback"), Customer and its Users (as applicable) grant to Lambda a perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable, perpetual license to use or incorporate such Feedback into the Services in any manner.
5. Data Privacy and Security

c. Data Processing Agreements. Where the Parties execute a Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”), the DPA shall be hereby incorporated by reference herein and become a part of this Agreement.
d. Subcontractors. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Lambda may use Subcontractors, who may access Customer Property, to provide, secure and improve the Services. Lambda shall be responsible for the acts and omissions of its Subcontractors to the same extent that Lambda would be responsible if Lambda was performing the services of each Subcontractor directly under the terms of this Agreement.
e. In-Product Cookies. Whenever Customer or Users interact with the Services, Lambda automatically receives and records information on its server logs from the browser or device, which may include an IP address, “cookie” information, and the type of browser and/or device being used to access the Services. When Lambda collects this information, it only uses this data to (i) provide the Services or (ii) in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify Users personally.
a. Confidentiality. During the term of this Agreement and for a period of three (3) years thereafter, each Party agrees to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of the other Party in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential information of a like kind; provided that a Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party with Disclosing Party’s consent or to its Affiliates, officers, directors, employees, subcontractors, or agents who need to know such information in connection with such Party’s exercise of its rights or performance of its obligations hereunder and who are bound by written agreements requiring the protection of such Confidential Information.
b. Compelled Disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law, any court or law enforcement agency or authority (e.g., via a valid court order or subpoena) to disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, it shall provide the Disclosing Party with prior notice of such compelled disclosure (if legally permitted). In such case, the Disclosing Party shall reimburse Lambda for excessive costs incurred by Lambda in connection with complying with such request, including costs of attorneys for time spent retrieving, reviewing and preparing responsive documents.

Beta Services are intended for evaluation purposes and not for production use, are not supported, and may be subject to additional terms that will be presented to Customer. Beta Services are not considered “Services'' under this Agreement for purposes of Section 7 (Warranties; Disclaimer) and Sections 8(a) (Indemnification by Lambda); however, all restrictions, Lambda’s reservation of rights and Customer’s obligations concerning the Service, and use of any Third Party Products shall apply equally to Customer’s use of Beta Services.

Without limiting the foregoing, in the event that any portion of the Services is likely to, in Lambda’s sole opinion, or does become the subject of an Infringement Claim, Lambda may, at its option and expense: (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using the allegedly infringing item, (ii) substitute a functionally equivalent non-infringing replacement for such item, or (iii) modify such item to make it non-infringing and functionally equivalent, or (iv) terminate the Agreement and any outstanding Orders and refund to customer prepaid unused Fees for the infringing items.

The rights and remedies set forth in this Section 8 are the sole obligations of the indemnifying party and exclusive remedies available to the indemnified party in the event of an applicable Third Party Claim.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EXCEPT FOR EITHER’S PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY AND DUE FROM CUSTOMER HEREUNDER DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE DATE ON WHICH SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE.

Either Party may terminate this Agreement and/or any Order by providing written notice to the other Party in the event the other Party (i) materially breaches any of its duties, obligations or responsibilities under this Agreement and fails to: (a) cure such breach within thirty (30) days after receipt by the breaching Party of written notice specifying the breach, or (b) if the breaching Party is incapable of curing such breach within thirty (30) days, provide the other Party with an acceptable plan for curing such breach within ten (10) days after receipt of such notice and thereafter curing such breach in accordance with such plan; or (ii) ceases doing business or is the subject of a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding, that is not dismissed within ninety (90) days of filing.

e. Surviving Provisions. Any provision which by its nature is intended to survive the termination or expiration of this agreement so shall including specifically, Sections 1, 3(a), 4(a), 4(b), 4(c) (last sentence only), 6-9, 10(c), 10(d), 11, and Exhibit A. Termination or expiration of this Agreement shall not affect any obligation accrued or arising prior to such termination or expiration.
11. Miscellaneous Provisions
a. Relationship. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the Parties, and Lambda will be considered an independent contractor when performing any Services hereunder.
b. Customer Affiliates. An Affiliate of Customer may purchase Services subject to the terms of this Agreement by executing Orders with Lambda hereunder. By entering into an Order hereunder, the Affiliate agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement as if it were an original party hereto.
c. Notice to California Residents. If Customer is a California resident, under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, Customer may contact the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs in writing at 1625 N. Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, California 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210 in order to resolve a complaint or to receive further information regarding use of the Services.
e. Modification; Waiver. Except for Lambda’s modification or update of the Documentation or the Service, or any policies as necessary to comply with applicable law, rules, regulations, no modification of this Agreement legally binding against the other Party unless in writing and signed or electronically accepted by both Parties; provided, however, if Lambda updates this Agreement, the updated version of this Agreement shall be binding upon the Parties at the start of the next billing cycle. The failure of any Party in any one or more instances to insist upon strict performance of any terms or provisions of this Agreement, the DPA or any Order, or to exercise any option or remedy which is conferred in this Agreement, the DPA or any Order, shall not be construed as a waiver, or relinquishment to any extent of the right to assert or rely upon any such terms, provisions, options, or remedies on any future occasion. No waiver by either Party hereunder shall be effective unless agreed to pursuant to a writing signed by a duly authorized representative of the Party granting the waiver.
f. Disputes. The Parties agree to arbitrate all claims arising out of this Agreement and that, by entering into this arbitration provision, they are each waiving their respective rights to a trial by jury or to participate in a class or representative action. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING COMMERCIAL CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Customer may bring a claim only on its own behalf and cannot seek relief that would affect other persons. If there is a final judicial determination that any particular claim (or a request for particular relief) cannot be arbitrated according to the limitations of this Section 11(f), then only that claim (or only that request for relief) may be brought in court. All other claims (or requests for relief) will remain subject to this Section 11(f). The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. All issues are for an arbitrator to decide, except that only a court may decide issues relating to the scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision or the interpretation of the prohibition of class and representative actions. If any party intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other party with notice in writing in accordance with Section 11(f). The arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. If the AAA is unavailable, the parties will agree to another arbitration provider or the court will appoint a substitute. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in other arbitrations in which Customer is not a party. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any evidentiary submissions made in arbitration will be maintained as confidential in the absence of good cause for its disclosure. The arbitrator’s award will be maintained as confidential only to the extent necessary to protect either party’s trade secrets or proprietary business information or to comply with a legal requirement mandating confidentiality. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA Rules, except that Lambda will pay for Customer’s filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees if Customer’s claim for damages does not exceed $75,000 and is non-frivolous (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). If Customer does not wish to be bound by this provision (including its waiver of class and representative claims), Customer must notify Lambda to the notice address set forth in Section 11(h) within thirty (30) days of the first acceptance date of any version of this Agreement. All claims between the parties, whether subject to arbitration or not, will be governed by California law, excluding California’s conflict of laws rules, except to the extent that California law is contrary to or preempted by federal law. If a claim between the Parties is not subject to arbitration, Customer agrees that the claim must be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in Santa Clara County, California and that Customer submits to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim.
g. Assignment. Neither Party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior express written consent of the other Party; provided, however, Lambda may assign this Agreement in its entirety, together with all rights and obligations hereunder, without consent of the other Party, to other entities operated by Lambda or its Affiliates, or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets related to this Agreement. Any attempt by a Party to assign its rights or obligations under this Agreement in breach of this section shall be void and of no effect. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the Parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
h. Notices. Except for notification methods expressly permitted under the Platform Guidelines, all notices under this Agreement to Customer shall be in writing and shall be delivered to the addresses first set forth in the Order(s). Notices to Lambda shall be addressed to: Lambda, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 2510 Zanker Rd. San Jose, CA 95131, with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Either Party may change its address for notice by giving notice of such address change in the manner provided herein. All communications and notices to be made or given pursuant to this Agreement shall be in the English language.
i. Anti-Corruption. Customer acknowledges and agrees that it has not received or been offered any illegal bribe, kickback, payment, gift or thing of value from any Lambda employees, agent or representative in connection with this Agreement, other than reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business. Customer will promptly notify Lambda if it offers or receives any such improper payment or transfer in connection with this Agreement.
j. Export Control. The Services are subject to the trade and economic sanctions maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”). By accessing the Services, Customer agrees to comply with these laws and regulations. Specifically, Customer represents and warrants that it is not (a) located in any country that is subject to OFAC’s trade and economic sanctions, currently China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and the Crimea region of the Ukraine; or (b) an individual or entity included on any U.S. lists of prohibited parties including: the Treasury Department’s List of Specially Designated Nationals List (“SDN List”) and Sectoral Sanctions List (“SSI List”). Additionally, Customer agrees not to – directly or indirectly – sell, export, reexport, transfer, divert, or otherwise dispose of the Services in contradiction with these laws and regulations. Failure to comply with these laws and regulations may result in the suspension or termination of Customer’s account. Customer agrees to comply with all applicable export and import control laws and regulations in connection with its use of the Services, and, in particular, Customer will not utilize the Services to export or re-export data or software without all required United States and foreign government licenses. Customer assumes full legal responsibility for any access and use of the Services from outside the United States, with full understanding that such access or use may constitute export of technology and technical data that may implicate export regulations and/or require export license.
k. Government Use. Lambda provides the 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 Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not conveyed under this Agreement, then it must negotiate with Lambda 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.
l. Force Majeure. Except for performance of a payment obligation, neither Party shall be liable under this Agreement for delays, failures to perform, damages, losses or destruction, or malfunction of any equipment, or any consequence thereof, caused or occasioned by, or due to fire, earthquake, flood, water, the elements, labor disputes or shortages, utility curtailments, power failures, explosions, civil disturbances, governmental actions, epidemics, shortages of equipment or supplies, unavailability of transportation, acts or omissions of third parties, or any other cause beyond its reasonable control. In the event any of the foregoing events results in Lambda not being able to provide the Services for a period of more than thirty (30) days, then either Party may terminate the Agreement upon written notice to the other Party.
m. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect.

If the availability of all or a portion of the Services depends on the corresponding availability of Third Party Products, Lambda will not be liable to Customer if changes in Third Party Products cause the unavailability of all or a portion of the Services. However, Lambda will use commercially reasonable efforts to update the Services to ensure continued interoperation with Third Party Products. Further, Customer acknowledges and agrees that if it gives a Third Party Product access to its Lambda account, Customer shall serve as the controller of such information and the provider of the Third Party Product serves as the processor for purposes of those data laws and regulations that apply to Customer. In no case are such providers of Third Party Products Lambda’s Subcontractors. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that (i) in order to use the Services, it may be required to accept end user license agreements or other agreements directly with third party providers of software or services (e.g., EULAs for hardware drivers); and (ii) the software and services covered by such agreements are “Third Party Products” for purposes of this Agreement and are not included as part of the “Services” as such term is used herein.
- Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Services are provided with, or facilitated by, certain open source software. The use of such open source software is subject to the applicable open source license terms which are either: (i) presented with the applicable Services; or (ii) readily accessible from within the applicable software or from a publicly-available source, in which case Customer shall be responsible to access, review, and abide by all such license terms prior to any use of the corresponding software. By using the Services, Customer agrees to comply with and be bound by the above terms and conditions governing the use of certain open source software programs, and acknowledges that the term “Services” as used in this Agreement does not include such open source software.
- Capitalized terms not defined herein shall, unless otherwise indicated herein, have the meanings ascribed to such terms in Lambda’s Cloud Terms of Service.
