Master Service Agreement
This Master Service Agreement (“MSA”) governs LeanData, Inc.’s (“LD”) provision of services to you, the client, and shall be read in conjunction with each Service Order (“Service Order”), which identifies the services (defined below) purchased by you (“you” or “Company”). In case of a conflict between the terms of this MSA and the terms of a Service Order, the terms of the Service Order shall govern.
1. TERM AND TERMINATION
a. Term. This MSA shall become effective on the date of the Service Order and shall continue until the expiration of the last Service Order issued and accepted hereunder, unless otherwise terminated as provided below (the “Term”).
b. Termination. During the Term, you may terminate this MSA and/or the accompanying Service Order: (i) immediately, in the case of LD’s Material Breach of this MSA; (ii) upon sixty (60) days’ prior written notice for any other reason; (iii) or as set forth in the corresponding Service Order. For the purpose of this Section, “Material Breach” shall mean LD’s failure to provide the Deliverables in accordance with the specifications in any Service Order that is not cured fourteen (14) days following the delivery of written notice to LD of such a failure, or any breach of LD’s representations or warranties. LD may terminate this MSA and the accompanying Service Order immediately for your breach of your obligations under this MSA.
c. Effect of Termination. In the event of termination for reasons other than LD’s Material Breach: (i) you will remain liable for any amount due under any applicable Service Order; (ii) LD will not refund any prepaid fees; and (iii) LD will wind up its work in a commercially reasonable manner and preserve and deliver to you all paid-for Deliverables (if any are specified in the accompanying Service Order). In the case of termination for LD’s Material Breach, LD will provide a pro-rated refund of any prepaid fees and will wind up its work in a commercially reasonable manner and preserve and deliver to you all paid-for Deliverables (if any are specified in the accompanying Service Order). Upon termination of a Service, all rights and licenses granted to you with respect to that Service shall immediately terminate. Both parties shall return any of the other party’s intellectual property and all confidential information used in the delivery of the Services within ninety (90) days of the date of termination.
2. FEES AND PAYMENT
You shall pay LD the fees (“Fees”) listed in the relevant Service Order pursuant to the payment method set forth therein (unless otherwise specified). All undisputed Fees shall be paid net thirty (30) days from the invoice date (unless otherwise specified). You must submit written notice to LD and provide supporting documentation as to any Fees you dispute within thirty (30) days from the date an invoice is received. LD shall provide a written response within thirty (30) days of the date of the notice. Upon resolution, you shall pay any and all outstanding amounts due and owing within fifteen (15) business days of such resolution. You shall be solely responsible for the payment of, and shall pay when due all applicable federal and state taxes, to LD under this Agreement (except for taxes assessed on LD’s net income), provided all such taxes for the particular period are included by LD on the corresponding invoice with respect to the Services. LD reserves the right to charge additional Fees for any services added in subsequent Service Orders and/or Change Orders.
3. SERVICES: LICENSE, RESTRICTIONS
a. Subscriptions Services/Deliverables. Pursuant to each Service Order, LD will provide data management services and Deliverables (as defined below) (collectively, the “Subscription Services”) for the benefit of you using LD’s proprietary software (the “LD Platform”).

LD will perform the Professional Services set forth in the applicable Service Order executed by the Parties, which shall include and/or specify a description of the Professional Services to be provided to you, the timeline for the performance of Professional Services, and the applicable Fees and payment terms.

LD shall defend, indemnify and hold you harmless against any loss, damage or costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) actually payable to unaffiliated third parties arising from claims, demands, suits, or proceedings (“Claims”) brought against you by such third parties alleging that the use of the Services as contemplated hereunder infringes the valid United States patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret of such a third party; provided, that you (a) promptly give written notice of any such Claim to LD; (b) give LD sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim; and (c) provide to LD, at LD’s cost, all reasonable assistance.

7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS, LOST BUSINESS, LOSS OF DATA OR COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES, THE LD PLATFORM OR THE SERVICES PERFORMED THEREUNDER UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE), EVEN THAT PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN ADDITION LD SHALL ONLY BE LIABLE TO YOU UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE) FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES IN AMOUNT EQUAL TO (A) ACTUAL DAMAGES OR (B) THE FEES PAYABLE TO LD FOR THE SERVICE(S) GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM DURING THE CALENDAR YEAR IN WHICH THE EVENT OCCURS, WHICHEVER IS LESS.
“Confidential Information” shall mean (a) the content of this Agreement and any Service Order; (b) any statistics or other user data relating to the Service which specifically identify you, including Client Data; (c) any information designated in writing, or orally at time of disclosure, by the disclosing party as “confidential” or “proprietary” and/or (d) any non-public information disclosed by a party to the other hereunder.

a. Assignment. Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the other party, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign or transfer this MSA in connection with a merger or acquisition provided the assigning party provides notice to the other party.

f. Waiver. Any waiver of any provision set forth herein, or any Service Order shall be effective only if in writing and signed by both parties. Failure of either party to insist on performance of any term or condition, or to exercise any right or privilege, shall not be construed as a continuing or future waiver of such term, condition, right or privilege.
g. Governing Law. Any claims arising under or related to the provision of Services shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. The parties hereby agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Santa Clara, California.
