Customer authorizes SSIC to give Customer Contractors the rights and privileges to the Offerings necessary to enable and provide for Customer’s use and receipt of the Customer Contractor Services. If at any time Customer revokes this authorization, to the extent the Offerings provide for Customer to limit the Customer Contractor’s access and use of the Offerings, then Customer is responsible for taking the actions necessary to revoke such access and use. In the event Customer requires SSIC assistance with such revocation or limitation, Customer must contact SSIC Support with written notice of such revocation or limitation at [email protected] and SSIC will disable the Customer Contractor’s access to Customer’s Offerings within a reasonable period of time following receipt of such notice but in any event within 72 hours of receipt of such notice.
4.2 Disclaimer. Customer Contractors are subject to the terms and conditions in the Agreement while they are using the Offerings on behalf of Customer and Customer remains responsible for their acts and omissions during such time. Any breach by a Customer Contractor of this Agreement is a breach by Customer. SSIC is not responsible or liable for any loss, costs or damages arising out of Customer Contractor’s actions or inactions in any manner, including but not limited to, for any disclosure, transfer, modification or deletion of Customer Data.

5.2 Ownership of Deliverables. Professional Services do not constitute “works for hire,” “works made in the course of duty,” or similar terms under laws where the transfer of intellectual property occurs on the performance of services to a payor. If applicable, the only deliverable arising from the Professional Services is a report consisting primarily of SSIC’s findings, recommendations, and adversary information. You own the copy of the report (including without limitation, all your Confidential Information therein) delivered to you (“Deliverable”), subject to SSIC’s ownership of the SSIC Materials. You agree that relative to you, SSIC exclusively owns any and all software (including object and source code), flow charts, algorithms, documentation, adversary information, report templates, know-how, inventions, techniques, models, SSIC trademarks, ideas and any and all other works and materials developed by SSIC in connection with performing the Professional Services (including without limitation all intellectual property rights therein and thereto) (collectively, the “SSIC Materials”) and that title shall remain with SSIC.

Recipient shall not use Discloser’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than as set forth in this Agreement. Recipient shall take the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature and importance (but in no event less than reasonable care) to protect the confidentiality and avoid the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of the Discloser’s Confidential Information. Within 72 hours of Recipient becoming aware of the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of the Discloser’s Confidential Information while in Recipient’s control, Recipient shall provide Discloser with notice thereof.

If the Recipient is legally required to disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information as part of: (x) a legal proceeding to which the Discloser is a party but the Recipient is not; or (y) a government or regulatory investigation of the Discloser, the Discloser shall pay all of the Recipient’s reasonable and actual out of pocket legal fees and expenses (as evidenced by reasonably detailed invoices) and will reimburse the Recipient for its reasonable costs and fees of compiling and providing such Confidential Information, including, a reasonable hourly rate for time spent preparing for, and participating in, depositions and other testimony.
7.4 Destruction. Upon Discloser’s written request, Recipient shall use commercially reasonable efforts to destroy the Confidential Information and any copies or extracts thereof. However, Recipient, its Affiliates and their Representatives may retain any Confidential Information that: (i) they are required to keep for compliance purposes under a document retention policy or as required by applicable law, professional standards, a court, or regulatory agency; or (ii) have been created electronically pursuant to automatic or ordinary course archiving, back-up, security, or disaster recovery systems or procedures; provided, however, that any such retained information shall remain subject to this Agreement. Upon Discloser’s request, Recipient will provide Discloser with written confirmation of destruction in compliance with this provision.
7.5 Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges that a breach of this Section 7 (Confidentiality) shall cause the other party irreparable injury and damage. Therefore, each party agrees that those breaches may be stopped through injunctive proceedings in addition to any other rights and remedies which may be available to the injured party at law or in equity without the posting of a bond.

8.1 No Warranty for Pre-Production, Evaluation and/or Trial Versions. Any pre-production, Evaluation or trial feature or version of an Offering provided to Customer is experimental and provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind and will not create any obligation for SSIC to continue to develop, productize, support, repair, offer for sale, or in any other way continue to provide or develop any such feature or Offering.
