Ontrack® PowerControls™ Maintenance Agreement
This Ontrack® PowerControls™ Maintenance Agreement (“Maintenance Agreement”) is entered into between KLDiscovery Ontrack, LLC (“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 Service for purchases and/or the Ontrack® PowerControls™ End User License Agreement (“License Agreement”) 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, 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM US Central Time, 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 License Agreement; 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 License Agreement.
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 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.

5.2 Customers shall notify Ontrack of problems by email or phone and will provide all relevant information known to Customer, and as requested by Ontrack, as well as sufficient support and access to the user of the Software to determine if a problem is attributable to an Error and, if applicable, to correct any Errors and determine if an Error has been corrected. Such problem notice must contain sufficient information on computer-readable media, if practicable, for Ontrack to reproduce the problem. 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.
6.1 In the event either party obtains access to the Confidential Information (defined below) of the other party in the course of performing this Maintenance Agreement, the party obtaining such information shall maintain the confidentiality of such information in the same manner it maintains the confidentiality of its own similar Confidential Information, but in no event with less than reasonable care. “Confidential Information” of either party means any information disclosed on written or magnetic media during the Maintenance Services that is marked “confidential” or with a similar legend at the time of disclosure to the receiving party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all Updates, Patches, and any software that may be provided by Ontrack pursuant to this Maintenance Agreement shall be deemed Confidential Information without regard to whether such items are marked “confidential” or with a similar legend. Confidential information shall not include any information that is (a) published or otherwise available to the public other than by breach of this Maintenance Agreement; (b) rightfully received by the receiving party from a third party without confidentiality limitations; (c) independently developed by the receiving party without reference to the Confidential Information; (d) known to the receiving party prior to its first receipt of such information from the disclosing party; or (e) hereinafter disclosed by the disclosing party to a third party without restriction on disclosure.

This Maintenance Agreement shall not be construed to prohibit, and Ontrack shall be entitled to use for any purpose, including without limitation use in development, manufacture, promotion, sale, support and maintenance of Ontrack’s or its customers’ products and services any information received from Customer in association with the support services described in this Maintenance Agreement that may be retained as know-how, ideas, processes or expertise in the unaided memories of Ontrack’s personnel.

8.1 Each party acknowledges that this Maintenance Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between the parties as to the Maintenance Services, and shall supersede all prior proposals, understandings and all other agreement, oral and written, between the parties relating to the Maintenance Services. If there is a conflict between the terms contained in this Maintenance Agreement and the terms of the License Agreement, the terms of the License Agreement shall prevail. This Maintenance Agreement may not be modified or altered except by a written instrument duly executed by the Parties.
8.2 This Maintenance Agreement and any performance hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota without regard to its conflict of laws rules.
