By using the Product or receiving the Consulting Services, you are agreeing to these terms. We periodically update these terms. If you have an active Futuremodel subscription, we will let you know when we do via an email or in-app notification. You can find archived versions of the terms here.

Customer is responsible for any sales, use, value added, excise, property, withholding or similar tax and any related tariffs, and similar charges, except taxes based on Futuremodel’s net income. If Customer is required to pay any such taxes, Customer shall pay such taxes with no reduction or offset in the amounts payable to Futuremodel hereunder. If an applicable tax authority requires Futuremodel to pay any taxes that should have been payable by Customer, Futuremodel will advise Customer in writing, and Customer will promptly reimburse Futuremodel for the amounts paid.

On Futuremodel’s request, but not more than four times per year, Customer will provide to Futuremodel a report listing, at a minimum, the Billing Metrics it is using for each Scope of Use (including, if applicable, the number of External Business Users using the Services) and the Project(s) deployed. If Billing Metrics are measurable from Futuremodel’s Billing Metrics server, this will serve as this report. If there is a discrepancy between the Scope of Use and/or the Billing Metrics purchased by Customer and Customer’s actual usage, Futuremodel may, at its expense and not more frequently than once per calendar year, audit Customer’s records relating to Customer’s use of the Services, and Customer agrees to reasonably cooperate with respect to any such audit. Any such audit shall be conducted with prior written notice, during regular business hours at Customer’s facilities and shall not unreasonably interfere with Customer’s business. If the audit indicates an underpayment, Customer shall pay the additional fees associated with the underpayment. If the underpayment is greater than 5% of the amount paid by Customer for the period audited, Customer shall also pay Futuremodel’s reasonable expenses of the audit.
    • 6.3. Additional Usage. Customer may increase Billing Metrics (including adding Users) at any time during the term of the Agreement by executing a new Order Form identifying the additional Billing Metrics and related pricing. Increases in Billing Metrics will co-terminate on the same date as the pre-existing Subscription Term. Customer understands and agrees that Customer will be charged a pro-rata fee for the initial month in which Billing Metrics are added and a monthly fee for each of the monthly periods remaining in the then-current Subscription Term. Customer also understands and agrees that the Billing Metrics purchased under a specific Order Form cannot be decreased during the Subscription Term.
  • CONFIDENTIALITY.

Subject to the limitations set forth in Section 7.2, all information disclosed by one party to the other party during the term of this Agreement that is either identified in writing at the time of disclosure as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of the disclosure, whether in oral, written, graphic or electronic form, shall be deemed to be “Confidential Information.” The existence and terms of this Agreement are Confidential Information of both parties.

Each party agrees to take all reasonable steps to ensure that Confidential Information is not disclosed or distributed by its Representatives in violation of this Agreement. A receiving party facing legal action to disclose Confidential Information of the disclosing party shall, to the extent permitted by law, 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.

Futuremodel at its own expense shall defend or settle any third party claims, actions and demands brought by anyone other than a Customer Related Party (as defined below) against Customer and its Related Parties (collectively, the “Claims”) where the third party expressly asserts that: (a) the Product infringes such third party’s trademark or copyright arising under the laws of the United States, or (b) Futuremodel misappropriated such third party’s trade secrets in the development of the Product. “Related Parties” means directors, officers, employees, Affiliates, successors, assigns of Futuremodel or Customer, as applicable. In the event that Futuremodel believes the Product, or any part thereof, may be the subject of an infringement or an misappropriation claim as to which this Section 9.1 applies, then Futuremodel may, in its discretion and at its sole expense: (1) procure for Customer the right to continue using such Product or any applicable part thereof, (2) replace such Product, or infringing part thereof, with a non-infringing version (or part thereof), (3) modify such Product, or infringing part thereof, so as to make it non-infringing, or (4) in the event that (1), (2) or (3) are not commercially feasible, then Customer shall have the right to terminate this Agreement solely with respect to the infringing Product, and have Futuremodel refund to Customer the pro rata unused portion of any pre-paid fees for such Product. THIS SECTION 9.1 STATES FUTUREMODEL’S SOLE LIABILITY TO, AND CUSTOMER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS OF ANY KIND IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCT DELIVERED UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT.

    • 9.3. Indemnification Procedure. Promptly after a party seeking indemnification obtains knowledge of the existence or commencement of a claim, the party to be indemnified will notify the other party of the claim in writing; provided however, that the indemnifying party’s indemnity obligations will be waived only if and to the extent that its ability to conduct the defense are materially prejudiced by a failure to give notice. The indemnifying party will assume the sole control of defense and settlement of the claim at the indemnifying party’s expense; provided, however, the indemnified party: may join in the defense and settlement of the claim and employ counsel at its own expense; and will reasonably cooperate with the indemnifying party in the defense and settlement of the claim. The indemnifying party may not settle any claim without the indemnified party’s written consent unless the settlement: (x) includes a release of all covered claims pending against the indemnified party; (y) contains no admission of liability or wrongdoing by the indemnified party; and (z) imposes no obligations upon the indemnified party other than an obligation to stop using any infringing items. If both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party are named parties in any action relating to the claim and the counsel chosen by the indemnifying party cannot represent both the indemnified party and indemnifying party due to any present or potential conflict in representing the interests of both of them, then the indemnifying party will retain separate counsel for the indemnified party.
    • 9.4. Indemnification Exclusions. Futuremodel shall not have any indemnification obligation pursuant to this Agreement to the extent a claim is based upon: (a) use of any version of the Product other than the then-current, unaltered version, if infringement would have been avoided by use of a current, unaltered version thereof that has been made available to Customer; (b) combination, operation or use of the Product with software not supplied by Futuremodel if infringement would not have occurred but for such combination; (c) use of the Product in violation of this Agreement; (d) Customer Modifications; (e) where Customer continues to use the Product after being notified of allegedly infringing activity or being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement; (f) Third Party Software, Customer software or Customer Data; or (g) Beta Features.
