CLIENT may provide to Certifying Company the applicable reports generated via the Software, and may also use the content of such reports or other content resulting from the use of the different modules within the Software to create separate deliverables for its Certifying Company. However, CLIENT is not allowed to use the Software for its internal business purposes outside the scope of the SOW. The Order shall be deemed accepted when CLIENT first uses the Software or the day of the latest signature date on the Order (whichever is earlier) (“Contract Commencement Date”), at which point a contract between CLIENT and PPS for the license of the Software in accordance with this CLIENT EULA shall come into existence (“Contract”). As specified in the Order, CLIENT’s license for use of the Software shall be as part of a PPS-hosted offering (software-as-a-service) accessible by CLIENT via the internet (“SaaS Offering”). With respect to the SaaS Offering, (i) CLIENT will not be provided with and shall have no right to any software code and, (ii) PPS will use reasonable commercial endeavors to make the SaaS Offering available twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week, but notwithstanding the foregoing, PPS reserves the right to suspend CLIENT’s access to the SaaS Offering for scheduled or emergency maintenance. CLIENT shall not and shall not allow any third party to (a) reproduce or modify the Software, or translate, or create derivative works based on any Software, (b) provide, rent, sell, sub-license, lease, merge, translate, loan, disclose, use for time sharing or service bureau purposes, or otherwise transfer or distribute the Software or any part thereof or use it for the benefit of a third party, (c) reverse assemble, reverse compile or reverse engineer the Software, or otherwise attempt to discover any Software source code or underlying Proprietary Information (as that term is defined below) (except to the limited extent that applicable law prohibits reverse engineering restrictions), (d) without the express prior written consent of PPS, disclose to any third party the results of any benchmarking or comparative study or analysis involving the Software, or (e) possess or use the Software, or allow the transfer, transmission, export, or re-export (directly or indirectly) of the Software or a portion thereof (i) in breach of any applicable laws or regulations, including (but not limited to) United States export laws and regulations; (ii) to any country for which the United States or any other government, or any agency thereof, at the time of export requires an export license or other governmental approval, without first obtaining such license or approval. CLIENT shall maintain the copyright notice and any other notices that appear on the Software on any copies (including backup copies) and any media. CLIENT is responsible for (i) all activity occurring under CLIENT’s user accounts (including, without limitation, administrators, employees, contractors and/or any other third party users) and their compliance with the terms and conditions herein; and (ii) complying with any applicable laws which might impact the CLIENT’s right to import, export or use the Software and documentation, and CLIENT warrants and represents that it shall comply with any regulations or registration procedures required by applicable law to make this license enforceable. PPS is not responsible to CLIENT for unauthorized access to CLIENT’s data or the unauthorized use of the Software to the extent that such access is not due to PPS’s breach of its confidentiality or security obligations hereunder. You acknowledge that Users’ ability to access the Software is dependent upon Users having (a) continuous access to the necessary telecommunications and Internet services and (b) properly configured and operational information technology infrastructure meeting such minimum system requirements as PPS may recommend or specify from time to time, including hardware, software, databases, systems, networks and services, whether operated directly by You or through the use of third party services (“CLIENT Systems”).

Additionally, PPS may, from time to time and in its sole discretion, issue new releases for the software including, but not limited to, upgrades, new features, patches, enhancements, or fixes (“Upgrades”) which will be included in the price of your license. With respect to SaaS Offering, Upgrades will be immediately and automatically available as of the release date.
3. FEES AND PAYMENT.
Fees and payments will be invoiced according to the Order, as applicable. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are nonrefundable.
