We will have no liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with a Beta Service.
1.3 BILLING, PLAN MODIFICATIONS AND PAYMENTS
1.3.1 Unless otherwise indicated, all charges associated with Your access to and use of a Service (“Subscription Charges”) are due in full upon commencement of Your Subscription Term, or, with respect to a Deployed Associated Service, at the time such Deployed Associated Service is purchased, subscribed to or otherwise deployed.

1.3.3 No refunds or credits for Subscription Charges or other fees or payments will be provided to You if You elect to downgrade Your Service Plan. Downgrading Your Service Plan may cause loss of content, features, or capacity of the Service as available to You under Your Account, and BCD does not accept any liability for such loss.
1.3.4 Unless otherwise stated, Our charges do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments, including value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes assessable by any local, state, provincial or foreign jurisdiction (collectively “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying Taxes, except those assessable against the BCD Group measured by its net income. We will invoice You for such Taxes if We believe We have a legal obligation to do so and You agree to pay such Taxes if so invoiced.
1.3.6 Payments made by credit card, debit card or certain other payment instruments for the BCD Service are billed and processed by BCD’s Payment Agent. To the extent the Payment Agent is not BCD, the Payment Agent is acting solely as a billing and processing agent for and on behalf of BCD and shall not be construed to be providing the applicable Service.
1.3.7 If You mandate BCD use a vendor payment portal or compliance portal which charges BCD a subscription fee or a percentage of any uploaded invoice as a required cost of doing business, You shall be invoiced by BCD for, and You are obligated to pay, the cost of this fee.

Unless Your Account and subscription to a Service is so terminated, Your subscription to a Service (including any and all Deployed Associated Services) will renew for a Subscription Term equivalent in length to the then expiring Subscription Term. Unless otherwise provided for in an Order Form, the Subscription Charges applicable to Your subscription to a Service for any such subsequent Subscription Term shall be Our standard Subscription Charges for the Service Plan and Deployed Associated Services to which You have subscribed or which You have deployed, as applicable, as of the time such subsequent Subscription Term commences.

This amount will not be payable by You in the event You terminate Your subscription to a Service or cancel Your Account as a result of a material breach of this Agreement by BCD, provided that You provide advance notice of such breach to BCD and afford BCD no less than thirty (30) days to reasonably cure such breach as provided for in Section 8.5 herein.
1.4.4 We reserve the right to restrict functionality, suspend or terminate the Services (or any part thereof), Your Account or Your and/or Agents’ or End-Users’ rights to access and use the Services, and remove, disable and quarantine any Service Data if We believe that You, Agents or End-Users have violated this Agreement. Unless legally prohibited from doing so, We will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact You directly via email to notify You when taking any of the foregoing actions. We shall not be liable to You, Agents, End-Users or any other third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuation of Your rights to access and use the Services. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity by You, Agents or End-Users may be referred to law enforcement authorities at Our sole discretion.
1.4.5 A Party may terminate this Agreement for cause (a) upon written notice to the other Party of a material breach if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of thirty (30) days from the date of the breaching Party’s receipt of such notice; or (b) if the other Party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors. If this Agreement is terminated by You in accordance with this section, We will, to the extent permitted by applicable law, refund You any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term after the effective date of termination. If this Agreement is terminated by Us in accordance with this section, You will pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term pursuant to all applicable Order Forms. In no event will termination relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees payable to Us for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
1.4.6 Upon request by You made within thirty (30) days after the effective date of termination or expiration of this Agreement, We will make Service Data available to You for export or download as provided in the Documentation. After such 30-day period, We will have no obligation to maintain or provide any Service Data, and, as provided in the Documentation, will delete or destroy all copies of Service Data in Our possession or control in accordance with Our Data Deletion Policy, unless prohibited by law.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF THIS SECTION 10.2 IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND LIMIT POTENTIAL LIABILITY GIVEN THE SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER IF WE WERE TO ASSUME ANY FURTHER LIABILITY OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH HEREIN. WE HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE RIGHTS TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICES PROVIDED FOR IN THIS AGREEMENT. THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVIDED FOR HEREIN WILL APPLY IN AGGREGATE TO SUBSCRIBER AND ITS AFFILIATES AND SHALL NOT BE CUMULATIVE.
1.6.3 Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages or personal injury or death, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to You.

2. CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
2.1 Subject to the express permissions of this Agreement, each Party will protect each other’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access or disclosure in the same manner as each protects its own Confidential Information, but with no less than reasonable care.
