As between you and CrashPlan, CrashPlan retains all right, title and interest in and to the Offerings and all related Intellectual Property Rights. Your Customer's rights to use the Offerings are only those expressly granted in the Master Services Agreement. All software is licensed and not sold, even if CrashPlan uses words like "sale" or "purchase" in sales materials.

3. Ordering and payment

3.1 Orders.  Purchase orders do not need to be signed to be valid and enforceable. No terms or conditions of any Order, purchase order, acknowledgment or other business form used in connection with any purchase from CrashPlan will have any effect on the terms of this Agreement regardless of either party's failure to object to such terms or conditions. Each party rejects all additional or conflicting terms or conditions. No Order is binding on CrashPlan until CrashPlan makes an ordered Offering available to you or your Customer. All Orders are non-refundable and non-cancelable except as expressly provided in this Agreement.

3.2 Payment.  CrashPlan will invoice you for the fees stated on your Quote after accepting your Order. You will pay all fees in the amount and currency specified on your invoice within 30 days of the invoice date. You will pay any delinquent amounts within 30 days of CrashPlan's written notice identifying a delinquency, and if you do not, then CrashPlan may suspend your Customer's access to the Offerings.

3.3 Disputed Payments.  CrashPlan will not exercise its suspension rights under section 3.2 (Payment) if you are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith, you are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute, and you have paid any undisputed fees in accordance with section 3.2 (Payment).

3.4 Taxes.  All fees owed under this Agreement are exclusive of any Taxes. "Taxes" means any sales, VAT, GST (Goods and Services Tax), use, gross receipts, business and occupation, and other taxes (other than taxes on CrashPlan's income), export and import fees, customs duties and similar charges imposed by any government or other authority. You will pay or reimburse CrashPlan for all Taxes arising out of the transactions occurring under this Agreement. If you are required to pay or withhold any Tax for payments due under this Agreement, you will gross up your payments to CrashPlan so that CrashPlan receives all sums due in full and free from any deductions. CrashPlan can rely on the name and address you provide to CrashPlan as being the place of supply for sales tax, income tax, and VAT purposes.

3.5 Refund.  If CrashPlan provides your Customer a refund under a Master Services Agreement, CrashPlan will issue the refund to you based on the amount that CrashPlan received from you for the refunded portion of the Offering. You will refund your Customer a proportional amount based on the amount you received from the Customer for the refunded portion of the Offering.

You may not settle or compromise any Infringement Claim without CrashPlan's prior written consent.
