Application Services Agreement Terms & Conditions
Updated February 16, 2017
AppFrontier, LLC ("AppFrontier") operates the Chargent payment processing service (the "Service") on the Salesforce platform. The following Terms and Conditions, the order form or enrollment page by which Customer subscribes for the Services (an "Order Form"), and any additional documents specifically incorporated thereby set forth the entire agreement regarding the use of the Service between each customer of the Service (each "Customer") and AppFrontier (collectively, this "Agreement"). By executing an Order Form manually or electronically, submitting payment information to subscribe for the Service, clicking the "I Accept" button displayed as part of the "Get It Now" AppExchange installation process, or installing software directly from appfrontier.com, Customer agrees to the provisions of this Agreement.
1 Provision of Service.
1.1 Service. AppFrontier will provide the Service to Customer as described on each Order Form and at www.appfrontier.com.
1.2 Term & Renewal. Except as otherwise set forth on an Order Form and below, the initial term of this Agreement is 1 year. The term will automatically renew for additional 1-year renewal terms unless terminated as provided in Section 9.
(a) Each renewal term will be subject to the version of these Terms & Conditions posted at http://www.appfrontier.com/terms.html (or such successor site as AppFrontier may designate in writing) 60 days before the start of such renewal term, and if such Terms & Conditions differ from this version, they will replace it as an amendment to this Agreement as of the start of such renewal term.
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Customer is receiving a no-cost trial of the Service, the term is 30 days, after which Customer must pay the applicable subscription fees to continue use of the Service and begin an initial term as described above in this Section 1.2.
1.3 Handling of Customer Data. Customer recognizes and agrees that: (a) the Service operates within the Salesforce platform to transmit payment instructions from within Salesforce to the payment processing gateway of Customer's choice; (b) the Service does not collect or store any data, information (including without limitation personally identifiable information), content, templates, forms, or material provided, made available, or submitted to the Service or retrieved by the Service from Customer's Salesforce.com account ("Customer Data"); and (c) security of Customer Data is the responsibility (if any) of Salesforce.com and not of AppFrontier.
1.4 Additional Users. As used herein "User" means an individual who is authorized by Customer to use the Service, regardless of whether the individual is actively using the Service at any given time. The number of initial Users is set forth on each Order Form. Customer may add additional Users ("Additional Users"), by submitting a request to AppFrontier by email. Upon AppFrontier's acceptance of the request, AppFrontier will make the Service available to the Additional Users on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, to the extent set forth in AppFrontier's email confirmation. The term of the Additional Users' access to the Service will be coterminous with the preexisting subscription term, and Customer will be responsible for any additional fees for the Additional Users in full for the month in which the Additional Users were requested. Subject to conditions in the Order Form Customer may reduce the number of Users as of the commencement of any renewal term by notifying AppFrontier in writing at least 30 business days prior to the commencement of such term.
1.5 Availability of Salesforce. Customer recognizes and agrees that the Service runs entirely within Salesforce and connects directly to payment gateways, and that AppFrontier will be unable to provide the Service and will have no liability in the event Salesforce or a customer payment gateway is unavailable for any reason. AppFrontier is not responsible or liable for any nonperformance of Service arising from planned or unplanned downtime of Salesforce or payment gateways.
2.1 Payment. All fees due under this Agreement are payable in U.S. dollars only. Payment terms for the Service will be set forth on each Order Form. If not set forth, all fees for the Service will be due thirty days from the date of AppFrontier's invoice. All fees are non-cancelable and non-refundable, except as expressly provided in this Agreement. AppFrontier may modify its prices by providing at least 30 days prior notice before the next renewal term of the Agreement. AppFrontier reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and/or Customer access to the Service if Customer fails to pay any fee within 30 days of its due date. Overdue amounts are subject to a late charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less. Customer will reimburse AppFrontier for all reasonable costs incurred (including attorneys' fees) in collecting past due amounts. This Section 2.1 does not limit AppFrontier's rights or remedies for breach of contract. Customer shall be responsible for any taxes, duties or withholdings based on Customer's order, excluding taxes based on AppFrontier's income.
2.2 Compliance. On AppFrontier's written request, but not more frequently than annually, Customer will provide AppFrontier with access to the Service through Salesforce or via screen share in order to verify that the Service is being used in full compliance with the provisions of this Agreement, including the number of Users and Service features subscribed for by Customer.

5.2 IP Remedies. In the event of any third party claim that the Service, as provided, infringes a United States patent, copyright or trademark.

5.3 Disclaimers. Except for the express warranties specified in Section 5.1 above, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND AS AVAILABLE, AND APPFRONTIER MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing: (a) AppFrontier does not warrant that the Service will perform without error or immaterial interruption; and (b) AppFrontier does not warrant the security or protection of any Customer Data.
6 Confidential Information.
6.1 "Confidential Information" (a) any information disclosed by either party to the other party, either directly or indirectly, in writing, orally or by inspection of tangible objects, which is marked or otherwise designated "confidential," including, without limitation, algorithms, business plans, customer lists, customer names, designs documents, drawings, engineering information, financial analysis, forecasts, formulas, hardware configuration information, know-how, ideas, inventions, market information, marketing plans, processes, products, product plans, research, specifications, software, source code, trade secrets or any other information; and (b) any information otherwise obtained, directly or indirectly, by a receiving party through inspection, review or analysis of the materials described in Subsection 6.1(a). Information disclosed orally shall be considered Confidential Information only if such information is confirmed in writing as being Confidential Information within a reasonable time after the initial disclosure. Confidential Information may also include information of a third party that is in the possession of one of the parties and is disclosed to the other party under this Agreement. Confidential Information includes, without limitation, documentation, specifications, pricing, disclosures in connection with the Service and the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Confidential Information shall remain the sole property of the disclosing party or its licensors.

Information and materials will not be considered as Confidential Information if the receiving party can establish by documentary evidence that the information is or was: (a) lawfully available to the public through no act or omission of the receiving party; (b) in the receiving party's lawful possession prior to disclosure by the disclosing party and not obtained either directly or indirectly from the disclosing party; (c) lawfully disclosed to the receiving party by a third party without restriction on disclosure; or (d) independently developed by the receiving party. The parties agree, both during the term of this Agreement and for a period of five (5) years (or, as applicable, with respect to Confidential Information that is a trade secret, for an indefinite period) after its termination, to hold each other's Confidential Information in confidence and not to disclose such information in any form to any third party without the express written consent of the disclosing party, except to employees and consultants performing services for the benefit of the receiving party who are under a written non-disclosure agreement protecting the applicable Confidential Information in a manner no less restrictive than this Agreement. Each party agrees to take all reasonable steps to ensure that Confidential Information is not disclosed or distributed by its employees or agents in violation of this Agreement. A receiving party facing legal action to disclose Confidential Information of the disclosing party shall promptly notify and provide the disclosing party the opportunity to oppose such disclosure or obtain a protective order and shall continue to treat such information as Confidential Information. This Section 6.2 shall not be construed as granting or conferring any rights to either party by license or otherwise, expressly or implicitly, to any Confidential Information.
Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless AppFrontier, as well as its licensors parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, attorneys and agents (collectively the "AppFrontier Parties") from and against any and all losses, claims, suits, actions, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including taxes, fees, fines, penalties, interest, expenses of investigation, and attorneys' fees and disbursements) arising out of or related to Customer's use of the Service, including without limitation: (a) claims that AppFrontier's processing, management, or use of Customer Data violates any contract or any law, rule, or regulation in any jurisdiction; and (b) claims by Customer's own customers or its employees, Users, business partners, or affiliates.
