Software as a Service
Terms & Conditions
Integration Matters Inc. (“Provider”) gives the customer (“Customer”) access to the software identified in the SaaS Order (“Licensed Software”) (Provider and Customer, each a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”). The Licensed Software is hosted in the cloud by Amazon Web Services (“AWS”).
Provider’s parent company, Faiz & Siegeln Software GmbH (“Parent”) is the entire legal and beneficial owner of the Licensed Software.
The support and maintenance services provided by Provider and Parent are specified in Attachment 1 .
By entering into the SaaS Order, Customer is accepting these Software as a Service Terms and Conditions (“SaaS Terms & Conditions”), including Attachment 1 . The SaaS Order and these SaaS Terms & Conditions shall form the agreement between the Parties (the “Agreement”).
The Agreement contains the entire understanding among the Parties and supersedes any and all prior agreements, understandings and arrangements whether written or oral among the Parties with respect to the matters contained herein. No amendments, changes, modifications or alterations of the terms and conditions hereunder shall be binding upon Provider, unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Provider.
“SaaS Order” means an order that Provider and Customer are entering into and that describes the Licensed Software (product description), the fees, the authorized users (the “Authorized Users”) and the duration of the services provided by Provider.
“nJAMS Client” is part of Licensed Software and means any software that Provider makes available to Customer for the purpose of use with Licensed Software only.
“Term” means the end of the services as determined in the SaaS Order and as extended, if applicable, pursuant to Section 9, unless terminated by either Party pursuant the provisions of Section 6.2, Section19 or Section 21.
“Customer Data” means all works, data and materials uploaded to, stored on or processed by Licensed Software by or on behalf of the Customer using the Customer’s account in connection with this Agreement.
“Free Trial” means Licensed Software provided by Provider free of charge for a limited period of time and with limited features and functionality for the purpose of evaluation of the Licensed Software.
USE OF SOFTWARE
Subject to Customer’s compliance with this Agreement, including full and timely payment of all fees, Parent grants to Customer a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferrable license to use and download the Licensed Software during the Term.
Parent reserves all rights related to the Licensed Software including the rights to copy, adapt, revise, distribute and reproduce it.
Parent reserves the right to make technical improvements and upgrades to the Licensed Software.
Customer may not copy, adapt, revise, distribute and reproduce or decompile the Licensed Software.
The Licensed Software shall remain the sole property of Parent. Customer has no ownership interest in the Licensed Software or any modifications to it.
Customer may, in special circumstances, access and use a Free Trial version of the Licensed Software for a limited and agreed period of time under the provisions of this Agreement free of charge. Free Trial services are provided “as is” with no warranties whatsoever, express or implied.
Provider agrees to grant Customer access to the Licensed Software in AWS’ cloud.
The Authorized Users may use the Licensed Software for the benefit of Customer in the ordinary course of Customer’s internal business operations (“Permitted Use”).
The Permitted Use of the Licensed Software will end upon expiration of the Term.
Customer is responsible for providing the system environment to have access to the Licensed Software in AWS’ cloud.
The Licensed Software uses Open Source Components for specific functions or requires such Open Source Components. Open Source Components are not components of the Licensed Software, they are system requirements. The licensing and maintenance of Open Source Components is not part of the Agreement.
Required Open Source Components as well as a list outlining Open Source Components required for the use of the Licensed Software shall be made available by Provider to Customer upon request. Open Source Components can also be obtained from the licensor of the respective Open Source Component directly.
Provider does not grant any license or any other right in the Open Source Components that is required for the use of the Licensed Software. The use of Open Source Components is governed by the license conditions of the licensor of the respective Open Source Component. This shall be the case irrespective of whether Customer receives the Open Source Component directly from its licensor or indirectly through the Provider. In case the Open Source Component is provided through the Provider, Provider shall upon request make available to Customer the license conditions received from the licensor of the Open Source Component. In any case, with regard the Open Source Component the licensor of such Open Source Component (and not the Provider) shall become the Customer's contractual partner.

All invoiced amounts will be net, to which the sales tax (as may be amended from time to time) will apply. The current rate of statutory sales tax shall be invoiced and paid in addition to all fees. Provider shall state the rate and amount of sales tax separately on the invoice.
No refund of fees will be made if the Agreement is terminated prior to the agreed Term as mentioned in the SaaS Order.
Customer shall pay all applicable taxes due under this Agreement, except taxes based on Provider’s net income.
Extension and Adjustments
In the event the Permitted Use is extended, additional fees will be owed for such extension.

For the second year as well as subsequent years of the Term, Provider may adjust the annual fee by the percentage the consumer price index has increased compared to the prior year.
