Customer will maintain a policy to respond to any and all such requests that Customer may receive regarding Customer’s Users' Content. Customer is solely responsible for backing up Content and otherwise using measures, as Customer deems necessary to ensure that Content is not lost. Customer may lose any of the Content for which Customer does not maintain a copy outside of the Services. Liferay and/or any of its vendors are not responsible to Customer, Customer’s Users or any third party, if Content is lost or deleted.
6. Third Party Use.
If Customer provides Customer’s Users with access to the Services and/or Content, Customer is responsible for any third party that Customer enables or authorizes to have access to the Services and Customer will be deemed to have taken any action that Customer assists, facilitates or permits Customer’s Users in taking relating to this Agreement, Content or use of Customer’s Account or the Services.

Customer will immediately notify Liferay if Customer suspects someone has breached this Agreement, the Acceptable Use Policy, or has obtained unauthorized access to Customer’s Account, the Content and/or the Services. If Liferay has reason to believe that Customer or Customer’s Users have breached this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy, Liferay or its designated agent may inspect Customer’s use of the Services, including Customer’s Account, Content and records, to verify Customer’s compliance with this Agreement. Customer will not interfere with Liferay’s monitoring activities and will provide Content or other information regarding Customer’s Account and/or Content as may be reasonably requested by Liferay to ensure that Customer’s use of the Services complies with this Agreement. Liferay reserves the right (but has no obligation) to suspend or terminate Customer’s access to the Services or disable Customer’s Account or remove Customer’s or Customer’s Users' Content if Liferay, in its sole discretion, believes Customer or Customer’s User has breached the terms of the Agreement, any policy referred in this Agreement or has violated any applicable law.

9. Technical Support, Service Levels, Back Up
9.1 Technical Support. The Services are provided for Customer’s use and evaluation without any technical support and may include beta or developer preview services.

Liferay may offer certain technical support to Customer for an additional fee ("Support") as set forth at www.wedeploy.com. Customer is responsible for providing all technical support to Customer’s Users, unless Customer’s User has a separate agreement with Liferay under which Liferay has agreed to provide technical support to them for this Service.
9.2 Service Levels, Back Up. The Services are generally provided through internet connectivity and third party vendors that Liferay does not control and may be subject to delays, outages or other problems; Liferay is not responsible for any such delays or outages.

Customer is responsible for backing up Customer’s Project, Content or other data.
10. Changes to the Services and Service Levels
Liferay intends to periodically update, improve and/or discontinue certain functionality associated with the Services and Customer’s user experience. As a result, the Services may be substantially modified. Liferay reserves the right at any time to change and/or discontinue any or all of the Services (including the underlying platforms and application programming interfaces ("APIs") and/or application binary interfaces ("ABIs") which may inhibit Customer’s ability to use existing applications. Liferay will use reasonable efforts to provide notice of material changes to the Services on the applicable Services website.
11.1 Fees, Units. Certain Services may be offered at no charge. For Services offered for a fee Customer agrees to pay Liferay (or a Business Partner see Section 11.6 below) any applicable Fees to receive the Services and for all usage by Customer or Customer’s Users. The Fees will be based on and Customer’s use of the Services will be limited to a certain amount of Units. For details on the various Service offerings please refer to www.wedeploy.com. From time to time, Liferay may offer Customer certain promotional pricing or promotional services, including but not limited to developer previews or betas (“Promotional Services”), during a specific term ("Promotional Period"). Customer’s use of the Promotional Services during any such Promotional Period will be limited to the term of the Promotional Period and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement as well as any additional terms and conditions that Liferay may provide in connection with the Promotional Period such as usage limitations, quotas, term limits and limited or no support. If Customer requires Services in excess of any Unit thresholds associated with the Service that the Customer has purchased, Customer must purchase the appropriate Services and pay any associated Fees to cover the utilized Units from the date Customer first utilized such Units. All Fees are nonrefundable.
11.2 Credit Card Processing. For any Services purchased through the WeDeploy portal, Customer must first provide Liferay and/or its third party payment processor with a valid and authorized credit or debit card number and associated charge information prior to receiving Services and Customer (i) authorizes Liferay or its third party payment processor to charge Customer’s credit card for any Fees, and for the amount due at the time of renewal of the Services, and (ii) if needed, agrees to provide updated credit card information to Liferay and/or its third party payment processor for subsequent Fees due. In order to provide the Services, Liferay may be required to share Customer’s information, including credit/debit card and other financial information, with third parties solely for the purpose of processing payment and/or providing the Services.
11.3 Order Form. If Customer is purchasing the Services from Liferay other than through the WeDeploy portal, the following terms will apply. Fees will be identified in an ordering document ("Order Form") and are (a) due upon Liferay's acceptance of an Order Form or, for renewal of Services, at the start of the renewal term, and (b) payable in accordance with this section. If credit terms are provided to Customer, Liferay will invoice Customer for the Fees upon Liferay's acceptance of the applicable Order Form and upon acceptance of any future order. Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form and subject to Liferay's approval of credit terms, Customer will pay Fees, no later than thirty (30) days from the date of each invoice. Liferay reserves the right to suspend or cancel performance of all or part of the Services and/or change its credit terms if actual payment has not been received within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. Customer may be charged interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) on all late payments.
11.4 Taxes, Transaction Fees. All Fees are exclusive of Taxes and Transaction Fees. Customer will pay Liferay an amount equal to any Taxes and Transaction Fees arising from or relating to this Agreement which are paid by or are payable by Liferay. "Taxes" means any form of sales, use, value added or other form of taxation and any fines, penalties, surcharges or interest, but excluding any taxes based solely on the net income of Liferay. “Transaction Fees” means currency conversion fees, wire transfer fees or other bank payment charges. If Customer is required to pay, withhold or deduct any portion of the payments due to Liferay, Customer will increase the sum payable to Liferay by the amount necessary so that Liferay receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had Customer made no withholdings or deductions and to offset any Transaction Fees, so that Liferay ultimately receives an amount equal to the full amount of Fees as invoiced.
11.5 Future Availability. Customer acknowledges that Customer’s purchase of the Services is not contingent on the future availability of any new features or functionality. From time to time Liferay may in its sole discretion increase or decrease the levels of the Services and modify any Fees, provided that such change or modification will only become effective upon the first renewal following thirty (30) days prior notice to Customer.
11.6 Business Partners. When Customer orders Services through a Business Partner, Liferay confirms that Liferay is responsible for providing the Services to Customer under the terms of this Agreement. However, Liferay is not responsible and shall not be liable for (i) the actions or omissions of Business Partners, (ii) any additional obligations not set out in this Agreement and which the Business Partners may have agreed to provide to the Customer, and/or (iii) any products or services that Business Partners supply to Customer under any separate agreements between a Business Partner and Customer. If Customer is purchasing Services from a Business Partner the terms included in Sections 11.2 and 11.3 above do not apply. “Business Partner” means an organization authorized by Liferay, directly or indirectly, to promote, market, sell, resell, distribute and support Services. Business Partners may for example include (without limitation) distributors, resellers or original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). For the avoidance of doubt, “Business Partner” does not mean subcontractors with whom Liferay has entered into an agreement to perform one or more of the Services offered under this Agreement.

12.3 Termination of the Services. Customer may stop using the Services or may terminate Customer’s Account at any time, subject to the terms below.

Liferay may, at its discretion terminate Customer’s Account and remove Customer’s Content if Customer’s Account has been inactive for more than fifteen (15) days.
12.4 Termination of the Agreement. Liferay may terminate the Agreement in its sole discretion on thirty (30) days prior notice; provided that if Customer has pre-paid for Services beyond such thirty (30) day period, Liferay may provide Customer either, at its sole discretion, a pro rata refund of pre-paid Fees or the ability to continue to use the Services for such pre-paid period. Either Party may terminate the Agreement for material breach by the other Party of this Agreement, if the breach is not remedied within twenty (20) days of receiving notice of such breach. Without limiting other rights that Liferay may have, Liferay may suspend or terminate Customer’s Services, and Customer’s Account or disable Customer’s or Customer’s User's Content immediately if Liferay reasonably believes Customer or Customer’s Users have breached this Agreement, the Acceptable Use Policy or applicable law.

Liferay and Customer agree that during the term of this Agreement, as a condition to the receipt of Confidential Information hereunder, Recipient shall: (i) except as expressly permitted by this Agreement not disclose, directly or indirectly, to any third party any portion of the Confidential Information without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party; (ii) not use or exploit the Confidential Information except for the provision of Services; (iii) upon the Disclosing Party’s written request promptly return or destroy, at Recipient’s option, all materials and documentation regarding the Confidential Information received hereunder save for (a) Confidential Information stored in routine back-up media not accessible during the ordinary course of business and (b) archival copies of the Confidential Information that the Recipient needs to maintain in order to comply with statutory or regulatory requirements, unless otherwise prohibited by law, provided that in both cases (a) and (b) the Confidential Information shall remain subject to this Agreement; and (iv) exercise at least the same degree of care in safeguarding the Confidential Information as Recipient would with its own confidential information, provided that at a minimum, the Recipient must use reasonable care to protect the information. Both parties agree that obligations of confidentiality will exist for a period of two (2) years following initial disclosure of the particular Confidential Information unless terminated earlier pursuant to this Section 16 or in writing by the Disclosing Party; provided that, to the extent the Confidential Information is subject to longer confidentiality terms under mandatory applicable law (e.g., trade secrets), the Recipient will protect such Confidential Information as required by such law.
16.2 Permitted Disclosures. The parties may disclose Confidential Information only to those employees, Affiliates, agents, representatives and contractors who have a "need to know" such information in order to undertake their work with respect to this Agreement or otherwise to the benefit of the parties and to its auditors and legal counsel, in each case, who are under a written obligation or otherwise obligated by law to keep such information confidential using standards of confidentiality not less restrictive than those required by this Agreement. Recipient may disclose Confidential Information, if it is required to do so by applicable law, court order, or regulation, any governmental or other regulatory authority. Before disclosing such information, Recipient will notify Disclosing Party of the disclosure requirement (if it can provide notice without breaching any legal or regulatory requirement or court order) and cooperate with Disclosing Party (at the Disclosing Party’s expense) to obtain a protective order or other similar protection. If Recipient is required by law, statute, regulation or court order to make such a disclosure Recipient shall furnish only the portion of the Confidential Information that Recipient, in the opinion of its legal counsel, is legally required to disclose and shall exercise reasonable efforts to preserve for the remainder the confidentiality of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
16.3 Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of Confidential Information, any breach of the obligations of this Section 16 may cause the non-breaching party irreparable harm for which an adequate remedy at law may not be available and that, therefore, the non-breaching party will be entitled to seek appropriate equitable remedies including temporary restraining order(s) or preliminary or permanent injunction relief from a court of competent jurisdiction to stop or prevent any breach of this Section 16, in addition to all other remedies available at law.
17. Publicity and Benchmarking.

Customer will obtain any necessary consent from Customer’s Users whose Personally Identifiable Information (defined below) or other Content Customer will be hosting in Services.
18.3 Legal Process. Liferay may provide information, including Content and information concerning Customer’s Account, as required by law (such as responding to a subpoena, warrant, audit, or agency action, or to prevent fraud) or to establish or exercise its legal rights or to defend against legal claims. Liferay shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information to such third parties.
