- Free SANCTIONS.IO Evaluation Service Licenses
3.1 Evaluation Service Trial License. Notwithstanding Section 13 (Term) of this Agreement, if the applicable Order Document is limited to a free trial license of the Evaluation Service or CUSTOMER is otherwise provided a free trial license of the Evaluation Service, then the term will be limited to the free trial period specified in the Order Document or a maximum of 1 week (the “Trial Period”).

If CUSTOMER wishes to use the Evaluation Service after the Trial Period expires, CUSTOMER agrees to purchase the applicable license. By continuing to use the Evaluation Service after the Trial Period expires, CUSTOMER acknowledges and agrees that CUSTOMER shall be responsible for any and all license fees required for such use.

CUSTOMER AGREE THAT, AS BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND SANCTIONS.IO, CUSTOMER ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY AND QUALITY OF CUSTOMER DATA INPUT INTO ANY SANCTIONS.IO MATERIALS. BECAUSE THIS DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY MAY NOT BE VALID IN SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, THE ABOVE DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SANCTIONS.IO’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, WILL BE LIMITED TO AND WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID BY CUSTOMER TO SANCTIONS.IO UNDER THE APPLICABLE ORDER DOCUMENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY.

THE PARTIES HAVE AGREED THAT THESE LIMITATIONS WILL SURVIVE AND APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, SANCTIONS.IO WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF DATA ARISING FROM THE AUTOMATIC TERMINATION OF THE LICENSE RIGHTS GRANTED HEREIN AND ANY ASSOCIATED CESSATION OF THE FUNCTIONS OF THE SANCTIONS.IO MATERIALS.

- Purchased Service Indemnity
Provided CUSTOMER’s use of the Purchased Service was in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, SANCTIONS.IO will defend, indemnify and hold CUSTOMER harmless from and against any loss, damage, liability or cost (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from any third party claim that the Purchased Service infringes or violates any third party’s copyright or trademark rights; provided that CUSTOMER promptly notifies SANCTIONS.IO in writing of any and all such claims. In the event of any loss, damage, liability or cost for which SANCTIONS.IO is obligated to indemnify CUSTOMER hereunder, SANCTIONS.IO shall have sole control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations, and CUSTOMER shall reasonably cooperate with SANCTIONS.IO in the defense and/or settlement thereof at SANCTIONS.IO’s expense; provided that CUSTOMER may participate in such defense using CUSTOMER’s own counsel, at CUSTOMER’s own expense.
