1. Definitions.

(a) “Affiliates” means any entity which directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, controls, or is controlled by, or is under common control with a Party to this Agreement (whether by way of majority voting stock ownership or the ability to otherwise direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of such party, for so long as such control exists).

(b) “Confidential Information” means, except as set forth herein: (a) the terms of this Agreement; and any commercial, financial, marketing, business, technical or other data, security measures and procedures, know-how, data accessed through its proprietary platform or information about its products, confidential intellectual property, trade secrets, third-party confidential information, and other sensitive or proprietary information, whether orally or in written, electronic, or other form or media/in written or electronic form or media, and whether or not marked, designated, or otherwise identified as "confidential" at the time of disclosure or other information disclosed by or on behalf of the disclosing party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the receiving party (the “Receiving Party”) for purposes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, under the circumstances, a person exercising reasonable business judgment would understand to be confidential or proprietary. For clarity, Customer Data shall be deemed Confidential Information of Customer, and Respeecher IP shall be Confidential Information of Respeecher. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following shall not be Confidential Information: (1) information that was in the public domain at the time of its disclosure, or which becomes public domain property through no fault of the Receiving Party; (2) information that was rightfully in the Receiving Party’s possession without restriction prior to disclosure; (3) information that was rightfully disclosed to the Receiving Party by a third-party without restriction; (4) information that was independently developed by employees and/or contractors of the Receiving Party who did not have access to and without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; and (5) aggregated data collected or generated by Respeecher or on behalf of Respeecher regarding Respeecher’s products and services (for purposes of providing or improving Respeecher’s products and services, benchmarking system performance, preparing statistics and system metrics, marketing and other purposes) that does not contain any personal information and other Customer-specific information.

(c) "Customer Data" means, other than Aggregated Statistics, all information, data, in any form or medium, that is submitted, posted, or otherwise transmitted by or on behalf of Customer through the Services, including without limitation (i) all content, materials, information, text, data, designs, logos, images, photographs, sound recordings, compositions, videos and other works of authorship that Customer uploads to the Services and (ii) the voiceover content generated by the Services for Customer based on the foregoing Customer materials.

3. Suspension/Termination.

(a) Service Suspension. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Respeecher reserves the right to suspend Customer's access to any portion or all of the Services (a "Service Suspension") if:

(i) Respeecher determines that Customer has violated Respeecher’s AUP.

(ii) Respeecher reasonably determines that (A) there is a threat or attack on any of the Respeecher IP; (B) Customer's use of the Respeecher IP disrupts or poses a security risk to the Respeecher IP or to any other customer or vendor of Respeecher; (C) Customer is using the Respeecher IP for fraudulent or illegal activities; (D) subject to applicable law, Customer has ceased to continue its business in the ordinary course, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition of its assets, or become the subject of any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, or similar proceeding; or (E) Respeecher's provision of the Services to Customer is prohibited by applicable law.

(iii) Any vendor of Respeecher has suspended or terminated Respeecher's access to or use of any third-party services or products required to enable Customer to access the Services.

(v) Respeecher reasonably concludes that Customer’s account is being used to engage in denial of service attacks, spamming, or illegal activity, and/or use of Customer’s account with the Services is causing immediate, material, and/or ongoing harm to Respeecher or others. In the event Respeecher suspends access to the Services, Respeecher will use commercially reasonable efforts to limit the suspension to the offending portion of the Services and work with Customer to resolve the issues causing the suspension. Customer agrees that Respeecher shall not be liable to Customer nor to any third-party for any suspension of the Service under such circumstances as described in this Section.

(b) Process. Except when suspension is pursuant to Section 3(a)(i) or 3(a)(ii), in which case suspension shall be immediate, Respeecher shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide written notice of any Service Suspension to Customer and to provide updates regarding resumption of access to the Services following any Service Suspension. Except when suspension is pursuant to Section 3(a)(i) or 3(a)(ii), in which case no cure is possible, Respeecher shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resume providing access to the Services as soon as reasonably possible after the event giving rise to the Services Suspension is cured. Respeecher will have no liability for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of or profits), or any other consequences that Customer may incur as a result of a Service Suspension, and shall have no obligation to provide a refund or reinstate Customer’s access to the Service following a Service Suspension arising pursuant to Section 3(a)(i) or 3(a)(ii).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required: (i) to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with applicable law, provided that the party making the disclosure pursuant to the order shall first have given written notice to the other party and made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order; or (ii) to establish a party's rights under this Agreement, including to make required court filings. Each party's obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective as of the date such Confidential Information is first disclosed to the Receiving Party and will expire five years thereafter; provided, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law.
