4.2. Non-HT Applications and Your Data. If You install or enable a Non-HT Application for use with a Service, You grant Us permission to allow the provider of that Non-HT Application to access Your Data as required for the interoperation of that Non-HT Application with the Service.

If You provide credit card information to Us, You authorize Us to charge such credit card for all Purchased Services listed in the Sales Order for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) as set forth in the Subscription Agreement and Sales Order. Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Sales Order. If the Sales Order specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, We will invoice You in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Sales Order. Unless otherwise stated in the Sales Order, invoiced charges are due net-15 days from the invoice date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Us and notifying Us of any changes to such information.
5.3. Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by Us by the due date, then without limiting Our rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5 of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) We may condition future subscription renewals and Sales Orders on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 5.2 (Invoicing and Payment).
5.4. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Our services is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts You have authorized Us to charge to Your credit card), We may, without limiting Our other rights and remedies, accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Our services to You until such amounts are paid in full.
5.5. Payment Disputes. We will not exercise Our rights under Section 5.3 (Overdue Charges) or 5.4 (Suspension of Service and Acceleration) above if You are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
5.6. Taxes. Our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Your purchases hereunder. If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section 5.6, We will invoice You and You will pay that amount unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income, property and employees.
5.7. Future Functionality. You agree that Your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Us regarding future functionality or features.
6.1. Reservation of Rights.

If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for Its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information.

Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the other party’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld); provided, however, either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (including all Sales Orders), without the other party’s consent to its Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a party is acquired by, sells substantially all of its assets to, or undergoes a change of control in favor of a direct competitor of the other party, then such other party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice. In the event of such a termination, We will refund to You any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all subscriptions. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
14.5. Relationship of the Parties. The parties are independent contractors. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties.
14.6. Third-Party Beneficiaries. Our Content licensors shall have the benefit of Our rights and protections hereunder with respect to the applicable Content. There are no other third-party beneficiaries under this Agreement.
14.7. Waiver.No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under this Agreement will constitute a waiver of that right.
14.8. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision will be deemed null and void, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in effect.
14.9. Intellectual Property Notices. All contents of the Services and Content including but not limited to design, text, software, technical drawings, configurations, graphics, other files, and their selection and arrangement are the proprietary property of HT and/or the proprietary property of its suppliers, affiliates or licensors. HT and the HT logo are including without limitation, either trademarks, service marks or registered trademarks of HT Inc., and may not be copied, imitated, or used, in whole or part, without Our prior written permission or that of our suppliers or licensors. Other product and company names may be trade or service marks of their respective owners. HT may have patents, patent applications, trademarks, copyrights, or other intellectual property rights covering subject matter that is part of the Service. Unless We have granted You licenses to Our intellectual property in these Terms, Our providing You with the Service does not give You any license to our intellectual property. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
14.10. Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act. The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act does not apply to Our Agreement. You understand that Our business partners, including any third party firms retained by You to provide computer consulting services, are independent of HT and are not Our agents. We are not liable for nor bound by any acts of any such business partner, unless the business partner is providing services as Our subcontractor on an engagement ordered under this Agreement.
14.11. Force Majeure. Neither of us shall be responsible for failure or delay of performance if caused by: an act of war, hostility, or sabotage; act of God; electrical, internet, or telecommunication outage that is not caused by the obligated party; government restrictions (including the denial or cancellation of any export or other license); other events outside the reasonable control of the obligated party. We both will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event. If such event continues for more than 30 days, either of us may cancel unperformed services upon written notice. This section does not excuse either party’s obligation to take reasonable steps to follow its normal recovery procedures or Your obligation to pay for the Services.
14.12. HT may compile statistical information related to the Services and Content, and may make such information publicly available, provided that such information does not identify Your confidential information, or include Your company name, and is presented as aggregated data collected from various sources.

14.13. Customer Reference. You agree (i) that We may identify you as a recipient of Services and use Your logo in sales presentations, marketing materials, and press releases, and (ii) to develop a brief profile for promotional purposes.
