IO.CLOUD CUSTOMER AGREEMENT
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
General. This Agreement governs Customer’s access to and use of the IO.Cloud services (the “Services”) that Exacent, LLC (“IO”) makes available to Customer or that Customer orders via IO’s Cloud interface located at https://dash.cloud.io.com (“IO.Cloud Dashboard”). IO accepts Customer’s order for services either by (a) signing this Agreement or (b) provisioning the Services for use by Customer.
Order: IO will provide the Services that are set forth on an IO.Cloud order form or are ordered and provided for via IO.Cloud Dashboard (each, an “Order”) in accordance with this Agreement. This “Agreement” includes and incorporates this IO.Cloud Agreement plus all Orders, Exhibits and Attachments thereto, including, without limitation the Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) which can be found at www.io.com/Legal and any Services Description or Service Level Agreement as set forth on the IO.Cloud Dashboard. If there is any conflict between the IO.Cloud Customer Agreement and the Attachments, the applicable Order shall govern. IO shall provide the Services for Customer at IO’s then published rates (the “Rate Card”) or at rates mutually agreed upon in writing between Customer and IO. In the event Customer fails to timely perform or provide any services or information required by IO to provide the Services or if IO determines in its sole discretion that remedial action needs to be taken, IO shall be excused from providing the Services until such time that Customer performs or provides such services or information required or performs such remedial action.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, IO will provide access to and use of the Services. IO retains all applicable right, title and interest in the hardware, software, APIs, tools and documentation IO uses to provide the infrastructure, functionality or otherwise made available as part of the Services (the “Service Elements”). Customer agrees not to reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise copy the Services or Service Elements.
The Services may contain third party software, including open source software. Customer shall comply with such software’s terms and conditions governing its use. IO makes no representations or warranties of any kind, either express or implied, of such software. If Customer users Microsoft software in conjection with the Services, Microsoft Corporation requires that Customer agree to these additional terms and conditions: Microsoft Terms.
IO shall have the right to modify or delete an API at any time upon no less than five (5) calendar days’ prior notice to Customers, which notice may be via electronic mail or by posting on the IO.Cloud Dashboard. Customer acknowledges and agrees that once an API is modified or deleted it may no longer work and Customer is responsible to update their use of any such API.
Should any condition exist that may impair the integrity of the Services, IO will initiate and coordinate planned maintenance, which may include disconnection of all or any part of the Services. IO will, to the extent reasonably practicable, give Customer seven (7) business days’ notice in writing (or such shorter period as may be reasonably necessary), which notice may be via electronic mail, prior to initiating a planned maintenance operation, of the timing and scope of such planned maintenance operation.
Fees/Payment. Unless otherwise set forth on an Order, (a) monthly recurring or rate charges (“MRC”) set forth on an Order or as set forth in the Rate Card based on Customer’s use of the Services are due and payable in advance on the first day of each month, (b) varying or usage-based charges (if applicable) as set forth in the Rate Card will be billed monthly in arrears and (c) set up fees and/or other nonrecurring charges (“NRC”) as set forth on the Rate Card will be billed upon the date the Services are ordered and are non-refundable and not subject to pro-ration (collectively, the “Fees”). In addition to the Fees, Customer shall be responsible for all applicable taxes. All amounts due hereunder shall be paid in United States Dollars unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Order and shall be by check delivered to IO’s designated address for payment or via automated clearinghouse (ACH) (or other funds transfer method designated by IO) pursuant to instructions provided by IO from time to time. Any amount not received by IO by the applicable due date shall be subject to interest measured from the original due date at the lesser of eighteen percent (18%) per annum or the highest rate allowed by law. Customer shall be deemed to have accepted as conclusively accurate any invoice that it has not disputed, in writing and delivered to IO within sixty (60) days of the invoice date. If IO is not able to deliver the Services on time due to a delay of Customer or its end users or agents, IO may commence billing as of the date the Services would have been ready for delivery but for such delay. IO does not give refunds for any charges already due, incurred or paid.
Term. The term of the Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and will continue until terminated set forth in Section 5 below (the “Term”).
By Customer. Unless otherwise stated in an Order, Customer shall have the right to terminate this Agreement upon written notice to IO. Customer acknowledges and agrees that any set up fees, reservation fees, non-recurring charges or any other NRCs for Services provisioned by or provided to Customer up to and through the date of termination shall be due and are not refundable or subject to pro-ration. Subject to Section 5(c)(ii), Customer acknowledges and agrees that upon any such termination, IO shall have no obligation to store Customer Data (as defined below) or to permit Customer’s retrieval of such Customer Data and that IO shall have the right to delete all Customer Data without any liability.
By IO. IO may suspend the Services and/or terminate this Agreement or any applicable Order or Services at any time, without further notice or liability, for cause upon the occurrence of any of the following:
Customer’s failure to pay any overdue undisputed amount;
Customer’s violation of the AUP;
Customer’s attempt at a denial of service attack on any of the Services;
Customer’s attempt to hack or break any security mechanism on any of the Services or IO otherwise determines in its sole discretion that Customer’s use of the Services poses a security or service risk to IO, to any user of IO services or may subject IO or any third party to liability, damages or danger;
Customer uses the Services in any way that threatens or disrupts the Services;

Other than as set forth in Section 5(c) (i) and (ii) above, IO shall have no obligation to continue to store Customer Data during any period of suspension or termination or to permit retrieval of such Customer Data and that immediately upon termination and following the time period in 5(c)(ii), IO shall have the right to delete all Customer Data.
If the Agreement, Services or an Order is terminated by IO for cause pursuant to Section 5(b) or by Customer for any reason other than cause as set forth in Section 5(a), then Customer may be liable for: (a) an early termination charge equal to 100% of the Fees for the remainder of committed Term, as applicable, of all terminated Orders; and (b) all charges, including all Fees, accrued but unpaid as of the termination date plus interest as set forth in Section 3. In addition, IO shall be entitled to recover all reasonable attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by IO in connection with enforcing this Agreement and collecting any amounts owed. The parties agree that the pricing of certain Services provided hereunder is based on a minimum term and any cancellation fees and early termination charges set forth in this Agreement are a material element to such pricing provided hereunder.
