iRise Customer Agreement (EULA)
This iRise Customer Agreement (the “Agreement”) is between you (“You”) and iRise, a California corporation (“iRise”). If You are agreeing to this Agreement not as an individual but on behalf of Your company, then “You” means Your company, and You are binding Your company to this Agreement. This Agreement governs Your use of iRise’s Software and related services, and describes Your and iRise’s obligations and limitations. This Agreement may be amended by iRise from time to time as set forth under Updates to this Agreement below.
This Agreement may be presented as part of an on-line transaction, prior to downloading software, as part of the installation of Software or referred to in an iRise order form. BY SELECTING THE “ACCEPT” BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS AGREEMENT, OR DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, OR USING ANY VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO COMPLY AND BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. The date on which You take any of these actions is referred to as the Effective Date.
This Agreement covers iRise Definition Center, iRise Studio and iRise Reader (the “Software”), regardless of “Edition” designation (Team, Enterprise, etc.) and regardless of version number designation. This Agreement applies to the Software when provided for use on Your computers as well as the Software when provided through iRise’s hosted or cloud based solutions (“Hosted Services”). Certain terms and conditions apply only in the case of Hosted Services. This Agreement also covers product documentation created by iRise and provided to You with the Software that formally describes the use, function or technical details of the Software (the “Documentation”).

Hosting Services. iRise may make available its hardware and systems available to customers to host a licensed copy of the Software known as iRise Definition Center (“Hosting Services”). If you elect to use Hosting Services, then the terms in this Agreement that are applicable to Hosting Services will apply. Subject to Your advance payment of any applicable fees and the terms and conditions of this Agreement, iRise hereby grants You a non-exclusive right to access and use the Hosted Services during the applicable subscription term identified in an order (“Subscription Term”) and in accordance with this Agreement and the Documentation. iRise will provide You with use of Hosting Services solely for the purpose of hosting the iRise Definition Center. Hosting Services are provided on a private server with shared network infrastructure, using SSL protocols. Instances and data are backed up for recovery purposes every two weeks or otherwise in accordance with iRise policy.
Hosting Service Levels. iRise will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Hosting Services available in accordance with prevailing hosting industry standards and the Documentation, taking into account Your computers, the speed of Your connection to iRise hardware and other variables outside of iRise’s control. If the Hosting Services fail to substantially conform to the Documentation over a continuous period of thirty (30) days after written notice to iRise of such failure, You may terminate Hosting Services. Provided that the failure is not caused by or substantially contributed to by Your use of the Hosting Services in a manner inconsistent with the Agreement or by other factors outside iRise’s control, and You terminate the Hosting Services, iRise shall provide a pro-rated refund for any prepaid, remaining Subscription. This section sets forth iRise’s sole obligation and Your sole remedy, for any failures of the Hosting Services.
Additional Limitations on Use. You may not use the Software or Hosting Services in any situation where failure or fault of the Software or Hosting Services could lead to death or serious bodily injury of any person, or to physical or environmental damage.

Term and Termination. This Agreement shall be in force upon the Effective Date and continue through the License Term or Subscription Term specified on Your order, unless terminated under the terms of this Agreement. Upon the earlier of termination of this Agreement or the end of Your License Term, You will cease use of the Software, uninstall any copies of the Software on Your computers and destroy all copies of the Software and Documentation in Your possession.

Indemnification. We will defend You from and indemnify You for reasonable costs incurred, damages finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction, or any settlement amount agreed to in writing by iRise arising from a claim brought against You by a third party alleging that the Software when used as authorized by this Agreement and in accordance with the Documentation infringes a United States patent or copyright (each, a “Claim”). Our obligation to defend and indemnify You is subject to You providing: (a) prompt written notice of such a Claim, and (b) reasonable assistance in the defense and investigation of the Claim. iRise shall maintain the exclusive right to defend the Claim and any settlement shall be at our exclusive option. If Customer’s use of the Software is, or in Rise’s opinion is likely to become enjoined or materially diminished as a result of a proceeding arising under this Section, then at iRise’s exclusive option iRise may either: (x) procure a license for Your continued use of the Software, (y) replace or modify the Software so that it no longer infringes, or (z) terminate the Agreement and provide You with a refund of any Software fees paid by You. iRise indemnity obligations do not apply to any claims to the extent they arise out of or are based upon: (i) use of the Software outside the scope of this Agreement or that is not in accordance with the Documentation, (ii) Your failure to implement the latest version of the Software or comply with iRise instructions, (iii) modifications to the Software not made by iRise, (iv) combination, operation, or use of the Software in conjunction with a service, hardware, or software not provided or authorized by iRise for use with the Software, in each case if the alleged infringement would not have occurred but for the applicable failure. This states our sole liability and Your exclusive remedy for infringement of intellectual property rights.

This Agreement will be construed, interpreted and governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflicts of law provisions thereof, and not including the provisions of the 1980 U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. In the event of any dispute between the parties relating to this Agreement the dispute must be finally settled by binding arbitration in Los Angeles, California, under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce ICC rules. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. iRise may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive relief without breach of this arbitration provision.

You are solely responsible for the security of the user names and passwords that You issue.
