In the event that MemberSuite fails to meet the MemberSuite Service levels outlined in Exhibit A, Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, in MemberSuite’s sole discretion, is that MemberSuite will provide Customer with a credit if such credit is set forth in Exhibit A. Any credit is expressly conditioned upon Customer providing MemberSuite written notice of such failure sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the tenth day of the month following such MemberSuite Service level failure.

In the event MemberSuite is unable to correct or restore Customer’s Data as provided in this Section 3.3, Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be that it may, at its option, terminate the Agreement and receive a pro-rata refund of the fees paid for under the Agreement for its use of the MemberSuite Service but which use has not yet been furnished by MemberSuite as of the date of such termination.
4. Disclaimer of Warranties. EXCEPT AS STATED IN SECTION 3 ABOVE, MEMBERSUITE DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE MEMBERSUITE SERVICE WILL BE SECURE, TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE MEMBERSUITE SERVICE WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT ALL ERRORS IN THE MEMBERSUITE SERVICE AND/OR MEMBERSUITE DOCUMENTATION WILL BE CORRECTED OR THAT THE SYSTEM THAT MAKES THE MEMBERSUITE SERVICE AVAILABLE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. THE WARRANTIES STATED IN SECTION 3 ABOVE ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES OFFERED BY MemberSuite. THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. EXCEPT AS STATED IN SECTION 3 ABOVE, THE MEMBERSUITE SERVICE IS PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, AND IS FOR COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. CUSTOMER ASSUMES ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR DETERMINING WHETHER THE MEMBERSUITE SERVICE OR THE INFORMATION GENERATED THEREBY IS ACCURATE OR SUFFICIENT FOR CUSTOMER’S PURPOSES.
5. Limitations of Liability. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE CONSIDERATION WHICH MEMBERSUITE IS CHARGING HEREUNDER DOES NOT INCLUDE CONSIDERATION FOR ASSUMPTION BY MEMBERSUITE OF THE RISK OF CUSTOMER’S INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. OTHER THAN FOR A VIOLATION OF CUSTOMER’S ACCESS RIGHTS OR SECTION 2.12 HEREIN, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO ANYONE FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE OR KIND (INCLUDING LOSS OF CUSTOMER DATA, REVENUE, PROFITS, USE OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE), ARISING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Notwithstanding the foregoing the maximum liability of either party to any person, firm or corporation whatsoever arising out of or in the connection with any access, use or other employment of the MemberSuite Service, whether such liability arises from any claim based on breach or repudiation of contract, breach of warranty, tort, or otherwise, shall in no case exceed the equivalent of the preceding 12 months in access fees applicable at the time of the event. The essential purpose of this provision is to limit the potential liability of the parties arising from this Agreement. The parties acknowledge that the limitations set forth in this Section are integral to the amount of consideration levied in connection with the access of the MemberSuite Service and that, were MemberSuite to assume any further liability other than as set forth herein, such consideration would of necessity be set substantially higher. Certain states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the exclusions set forth above may not apply to Customer. THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION SHALL NOT APPLY TO EITHER PARTY’S INDEMNITY OBLIGATIONS SET FORTH IN SECTION 6 BELOW.
6.1. Infringement. MemberSuite will indemnify, defend and hold Customer harmless from and against any and all costs, liabilities, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, “Losses”) arising solely out of or in connection with a claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by any third party against Customer which arise out of or result from the infringement of any copyright, patent, trademark, or misappropriation of a trade secret relating to the MemberSuite Service; provided that Customer (a) promptly gives MemberSuite notice of the claim, suit, action, or proceeding; (b) gives MemberSuite sole control of the defense and related settlement negotiations; and (c) provides MemberSuite with all reasonably available information and assistance necessary to perform MemberSuite’s obligations under this paragraph. If the MemberSuite Service solely is held to infringe any intellectual property right, MemberSuite may, in its sole discretion and at its own expense, use commercially reasonable efforts to either procure rights that will protect Customer against such claim without cost to Customer or replace the MemberSuite Service with a non- infringing MemberSuite Service. Provided that MemberSuite complies with this Section 6.1, Customer shall have no remedy against MemberSuite, except it may at its option terminate the Agreement and receive a pro-rata refund of the fees paid for under the Agreement for Customer’s use of the MemberSuite Service but which use has not yet been furnished by MemberSuite as of the date of such termination.
6.2. Disclosure of Customer Data. MemberSuite will fully indemnify, defend and hold Customer harmless from and against any Losses arising out of or in connection with a claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by any third party against Customer which arise out of or result from MemberSuite’s gross negligence in preventing unauthorized access to confidential Customer data, or MemberSuite’s willful disclosure of such confidential Customer data, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in connection with a claim by a third party alleging a breach of confidentiality. In addition, MemberSuite will indemnify Customer up to an amount not to exceed the total value of access fees actually paid during the term of Customer’s agreement , from and against any Losses incurred by Customer with respect to any third party claim, suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or relating to MemberSuite’s breach of Section 2.12 of this Agreement (which breach that does not rise to the level of gross negligence in preventing unauthorized access to confidential Customer Data or MemberSuite’s willful disclosure of such confidential Customer Data as described in Section 6.2). MemberSuite’s indemnification obligations under this Section 6.2 are expressly premised upon Customer (a) promptly giving MemberSuite notice of any such third party claim, suit, action, or proceeding; (b) giving MemberSuite sole control of the defense and related settlement negotiations; and (c) promptly providing MemberSuite with all reasonably available information and assistance necessary to perform MemberSuite’s obligations under this Section 6.2. Provided that MemberSuite complies with this Section 6.2, Customer shall have no remedy against MemberSuite, except it may at its option terminate the Agreement and receive a pro-rata refund of the access fees paid for under the Agreement for its use of the MemberSuite Service but which use has not yet been furnished by MemberSuite as of the date of such termination.
6.3. Customer’s Infringement. Customer shall defend and hold MemberSuite harmless from and against any and all Losses arising out of or in connection with a claim, suit, action, or proceeding (i) alleging that Customer Data or any Trademarks, or any use thereof, infringes the intellectual property rights or other rights, or has caused harm to a third party; (ii) of Customer’s breach of Section 2.6 and 2.13 above; (iii) of a modification by Customer of the MemberSuite Service giving rise to such infringement; (iv) of Customer’s combination, interface, operation or use of the MemberSuite Service with third party technology except for as provided in the MemberSuite Documentation; (v) of misuse of the MemberSuite Service by Customer; (vi) of acts (or any failure to act) by Customer hereunder; or (vii) of any breach by Customer of the Customer obligations hereunder, provided that MemberSuite (a) promptly provides Customer notice of the claim, suit, action, or proceeding; (b) gives Customer sole control of the defense and related settlement negotiations; and (c) provides Customer with all reasonably available information and assistance necessary to perform Customer’s obligations under this paragraph.
6.4. Force Majeure.

6.5. Survival. The indemnification obligations contained in this Section 6 shall survive termination of this Agreement for one year.
7.1. Suspension for Delinquent Account. MemberSuite reserves the right to suspend Customer’s access and/or use of the MemberSuite Service for any accounts for which any payment is due but unpaid. Customer agrees that MemberSuite shall not be liable to Customer nor to any third party for any suspension of the MemberSuite Service resulting from Customer’s nonpayment of fees as described in this Section 7.1.
7.2. Suspension for Ongoing Harm. Customer agrees that MemberSuite may with reasonably contemporaneous telephonic notice to Customer suspend Customer’s access to the MemberSuite Service, interrupt any queries or batch processes, and generally prevent Customer from using the MemberSuite Service if MemberSuite reasonably concludes that Customer use of the MemberSuite Service is causing immediate and ongoing harm to MemberSuite or others. In the extraordinary event that MemberSuite suspends Customer’s access to the MemberSuite Service, Customer will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the issues causing the suspension of MemberSuite Service and agrees that MemberSuite can continue a suspension until the issue is corrected and/or no longer causing harm to MemberSuite or any other MemberSuite customers. Customer agrees that MemberSuite shall not be liable to Customer or to any third party for any suspension of the MemberSuite Service under such circumstances as described in this Section 7.2.
7.3. In The Event of Breach. Other than as noted herein, either party may terminate this Agreement upon thirty (30) days written notice to the other party in the event of a material breach of any provision of this Agreement by the other party, provided that, during the thirty (30) day period, the breaching party fails to cure such material breach. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, Customer shall have no rights to continue use of the MemberSuite Service.

7.4. Handling of Customer Data In The Event Of Termination. Customer acknowledges and agrees that following termination of Customer’s account and/or use of the MemberSuite Service, MemberSuite may immediately deactivate Customer’s account and that following a reasonable period of not less than 90 days shall be able to delete Customer’s account and related Customer Data.

Customer further agrees that MemberSuite shall not be liable to Customer or to any third party for any termination of Customer access to the MemberSuite Service or deletion of Customer Data, provided that MemberSuite is in compliance with the terms of this Section 7.4.
8. Modification To or Discontinuation of the MemberSuite Service. MemberSuite reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify, temporarily or permanently, within MemberSuite’s sole discretion, the MemberSuite Service (or any part thereof). In the event that MemberSuite modifies the MemberSuite Service in a manner which removes or disables a feature or functionality on which Customer materially relies, MemberSuite, at Customer’s request, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to substantially restore such functionality to Customer. In the event that MemberSuite is unable to substantially restore such functionality, Customer shall have the right to terminate the Agreement and receive a pro-rata refund of the fees paid under the Agreement for use of the MemberSuite Service which was paid for by Customer but not yet furnished by MemberSuite as of the date of such termination. Customer acknowledges that MemberSuite reserves the right to discontinue offering the MemberSuite Service at the conclusion of Customer’s then current Term. Customer agrees that MemberSuite shall not be liable to Customer or to any third party for any modification of the MemberSuite Service as described in this Section 8.
9. Modifications. MemberSuite reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify these Terms of Service by posting the updated Terms of Service. By using the MemberSuite Service after Company has updated the Terms of Service, Customer is agreeing to the updated Terms of Service.
SERVICE LEVEL COMMITMENT FOR SUBSCRIBERS OF MEMBERSUITE
Service Level Commitment
MemberSuite commits to provide 98% service availability with respect to the Customer’s MemberSuite Service during each month of the term (exclusive of any scheduled service downtime). If in any calendar month this uptime commitment is not met, MemberSuite shall provide, as the sole and exclusive remedy, a Customer credit as provided for in this Schedule A. MemberSuite Service Downtime is defined as a period that the MemberSuite Service as provided by MemberSuite is not available to Customer and its Authorized Users as a result of nonscheduled events and starts when Customer first notifies MemberSuite the service is not available, using the prescribed notice procedures, and stops when Customer or one of its Authorized Users is able to login to the MemberSuite Service. Scheduled maintenance as described below is specifically excluded from this commitment.
MemberSuite warrants service availability only for that which is provided to Customer by MemberSuite. MemberSuite does not warranty any availability other than as it relates to the MemberSuite Service.
Scheduled and Unscheduled Maintenance
Scheduled maintenance does not count as downtime in calculating service availability. Scheduled maintenance time is communicated in accordance with the notice section set forth below at least two full business days in advance of the maintenance time. Scheduled maintenance time occurs at night between 9:00 PM and 5:00 AM Eastern. MemberSuite may be required to periodically schedule emergency maintenance with advance notice of less than two business days. Such scheduled emergency maintenance shall not be counted against the service availability commitment and MemberSuite will use all reasonable efforts to avoid such emergency maintenance. MemberSuite reserves the right on approximately a quarterly basis to issue new releases in which MemberSuite adds functionality to the MemberSuite Service. Customer acknowledges that these periodic major releases can take several hours to complete.
In the event that MemberSuite in its sole discretion determines that any unscheduled, emergency maintenance is necessary, MemberSuite will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer. Such unscheduled maintenance will be counted against the service availability commitment.
In order to receive a credit under this service level commitment, Customer must have created a service case with MemberSuite using the regular support process within five (5) days of the end of the applicable month. A service case will be opened by e-mailing MemberSuite at email@example.com; If Customer submits a credit request and does not receive a prompt automated response indicating that the request was received, Customer must resubmit the request because the submission was not properly received and will not result in a credit. Customers who are past due or in default with respect to any payment or any material contractual obligations to MemberSuite are not eligible for any credit under this Service Level Commitment. The service credit is valid for up to one year from the quarter for which the credit was issued. MemberSuite will calculate any service availability downtime using MemberSuite’s system logs and other records.
The Service Level Commitment may be amended by MemberSuite in its sole discretion, after providing 30 days advance notice. Notices will be sufficient if provided to a user designated as an administrator of your MemberSuite account either a) as a note on the screen presented immediately after completion of the login authentication credentials through the login screen, or b) by e-mail to the registered e-mail address provided for administrator(s) for Customer’s account.
Exclusion of Sandbox and Beta Accounts
MemberSuite Sandbox, Beta, and other temporary test and production environments are expressly excluded from this or any other service level commitment.
SCHEDULE B SECURITY
MemberSuite's security strategy is to protect Customer data at multiple levels, which includes data security, data integrity, and data privacy.
To ensure the privacy, security, and availability of Customer data and transactions, MemberSuite employs the following technologies in delivering its service.
Data Security Data Center Security
MemberSuite's production systems are located in one of the leading co-location facilities in the United States. Production web, application, and database servers along with network equipment are housed in a suite at the colocation facility which provides 24x7security. To access the suite there are several levels of security that must be passed where each entry point provides state of the art card readers, scanners, and other access devices.
MemberSuite's network is protected by firewalls against unauthorized access. Leading-edge firewall equipment has been chosen to protect the network.
MemberSuite's uses 128-bit domestic and 64 bit international SSL encryption to protect the customer's credit card data to the credit card gateway. Databases are protected by firewalls against unauthorized usage. Database users are restricted to a controlled list; individual activities are restricted.
Secure Application Access
MemberSuite's users access the application using password authentication which is encrypted with Secure Hash Function. The robust design of the application prevents a customer from accessing another customer's data. There are several layers of protected servers that stand between the web page where the customer logs in and the actual data. Highly sensitive data is encrypted with AES 256- bit.
MemberSuite uses tightly controlled passwords on its servers and network equipment. MemberSuite limits access to production systems to authorized personnel only. Passwords are changed on a regular basis. Security updates to the operating systems are tracked and updated as necessary.
MemberSuite looks at its application as well as the infrastructure as a tightly integrated system. MemberSuite has spare servers ready to deploy at a moment’s notice in the event of an equipment failure. MemberSuite chooses equipment of the highest quality to power our application.
MemberSuite has in place an expert team to provide services for server and network management, monitoring, backups, and other necessary maintenance. System administrators respond to monitoring alerts 24x7 and repair critical failures immediately.
Data and Backups
Customer data is stored on a server that is configured with RAID 5. In the event of a disk failure, the customer will not experience an interruption of service.
All customer data changes are automatically backed up daily to a tape library system. Tapes remain in the highly secure environment to protect the data from unauthorized access.
