This Ontrack® PowerControls Maintenance Agreement (“Maintenance Agreement”) is entered into between KLDiscovery Ontrack Pty Ltd (ACN 112 851 591), with registered address at 9/28 Donkin Street, West End, Queensland 4101 (“Ontrack”) and the entity specified in the Order ("Customer”).  Each shall be a “Party” or collectively the “Parties.”  Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Ontrack Terms of Sale for purchases and/or the Ontrack® PowerControls End User License Agreement (“EULA”) supplied to Customer upon download of the Ontrack® PowerControls Software (the “Software”). 

1. Maintenance Services 

1.1 In accordance with the terms of this Maintenance Agreement, Ontrack will provide the following in relation to the then current version of the Software (collectively “Maintenance Services"): 

1.1.1 Updates. Ontrack will make available to Customer downloads of Software updates or upgrades (“Updates”) in the form the Software was originally provided to Customer, including Documentation, as Ontrack makes such Updates for the Software available for general release. “Update” shall include means any modification, correction or addition to the Software or Documentation, including updates and enhancements that Ontrack makes generally available to its customers without additional charge. Customer shall incorporate the Updates as soon as practicable and acknowledges that failure to incorporate any such Update may result in usability issues or security vulnerabilities in the Software for which Ontrack shall not be responsible.  

1.1.2 Patches. For Customers currently paid up and in good standing on the applicable Maintenance Agreement, Ontrack will make available to Customer those Patches which have been published and made generally available. “Patch(es)” means additional programming code to be integrated with the Software to correct an error in the standard functioning of the Software or to alleviate its effects (“Error”). 

1.1.3 Support. Ontrack shall provide live telephone and email support to Customers with a valid licence to the Software to which Ontrack: (a) can determine if a problem Customer is encountering is attributable to an Error; and (b) to assist in resolving Errors reported by Customer that occur during normal usage of the Software (“Live Support”). Any Live Support described herein shall be offered to Customer only during the normal business hours of the Ontrack Technical Support team, 01:00 AM to 11:00 AM (AEST), Monday to Friday, excluding Ontrack’s recognized holidays. All support and maintenance shall be conducted in the English language only. Ontrack will use reasonable commercial efforts to remedy Errors reported by Customer to Ontrack. Such remedy may consist of corrected portion(s) of the Software, Patches, or communication to Customer of a workaround that gives Customer the ability to achieve substantially the same functionality as would be obtained without the Error, as determined by Ontrack. 

1.1.4 Ontrack Updates, Patches and bug fixes are only effective on the latest version of the Software. For clarity, the latest version of the Software is a version of the Software that has been updated with all the most current Updates and Patches released or made available for such version of the Software. If Customer has not incorporated all available Updates, Patches and bug fixes to the Software, any subsequently released Patches, Updates or bug fixes may not be effective or usable on such Software. 

1.1.5 Ontrack shall have no obligation to investigate or correct problems (including Errors) that cannot be reproduced by Ontrack based on information provided by Customer; or that are due to a breach by Customer of the terms of the EULA; or that cannot be remedied due either to the operational characteristics of the computer equipment on which the Software is used; or to modifications to the Software made by Customer or any third party. Ontrack will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Maintenance Services under this Maintenance Agreement; however, Customer acknowledges that Ontrack cannot guarantee that every question, problem, issue or Error reported by Customer can or will be resolved. Nothing in this Agreement shall expand or add to any warranty for the Software set forth in the EULA.  

2. Maintenance Fee and Payment 

2.1 Customer will pay Ontrack the non-refundable fee(s) set forth in the customer Order within 30 (thirty) days of acceptance of the Order by Ontrack. Customer is responsible for the payment of any goods or sales taxes included on the Order.     Ontrack will accept purchase order numbers (“PO”) provided the PO is provided prior to maintenance activation.  Ontrack reserves the right to suspend any maintenance or provide any technical support, including Software Updates, if payment is not made when due.  

3. Term and Termination. 

3.1 Term. This Maintenance Agreement shall commence on acceptance of the Order by Ontrack and continue for the periods specified in the Order.    

3.2 Termination.  This Maintenance Agreement shall terminate: (i) immediately upon termination or expiration of Customer’s right to use the Software, including a breach by Customer of either this Maintenance Agreement or the EULA; (ii) immediately upon expiration of the then-current term of maintenance as specified in the Order.  (iii) immediately upon Customer’s failure to pay in accordance with this Maintenance Agreement; or (iv) on written notice by Ontrack if Customer has breached this Maintenance Agreement or the EULA and such breach is not cured within 14 (fourteen) days.  Ontrack shall be entitled terminate this Maintenance Agreement on written notice in the event of a breach by Customer incapable of being cured.   Ontrack shall be entitled to suspend the Maintenance Services if an invoice remains unpaid by Customer when due.

Unless prohibited by applicable law, Customer acknowledges and agrees that under no circumstances shall Ontrack or any of its agents be liable for any loss, cost, expense, or damage to Customer in any amount which exceeds the annual maintenance fee set forth in any Order. In no event shall Ontrack or any of its agents be liable to Customer for any indirect, incidental, punitive, exemplary, special, consequential damages or similar damages, including any lost profits or lost data arising out of the use or inability to use the Software even if Ontrack or its agents have been advised of the possibility of such damages. 

4.3 Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Ontrack and its agents against any loss, damage, expense, or cost, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of any claim, demand, proceeding or lawsuit related to customer’s unauthorized use or misuse of the Software and/or the Maintenance Services.  

5. Customer Responsibilities

Thereafter, Customer will keep Ontrack notified of any additions or changes to such information. Customer shall promptly respond to Ontrack requests for additional information or assistance.
