If you are accessing or using the Services on behalf of your company, you represent that you are authorised to accept this Agreement on behalf of your company, and all references to "you" or "Customer" reference your company.

This Agreement permits Customer to purchase subscriptions to online software-as-a-service products and other services from Frankli under any Frankli ordering documents, online registration, order descriptions or order confirmations referencing this Agreement ("Order Form(s)") and sets forth the basic terms and conditions under which those products and services will be delivered.

Frankli will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer of the changes through communications via Customer's account, email or other means. Customers may be required to click to accept or otherwise agree to the modified Agreement before renewing a Subscription Term or entering into a new Order Form. In any event, continued use of the Services after the updated version of this Agreement goes into effect will constitute Customer's acceptance of such updated version.

For the Services to communicate with such Third-Party Platforms, Customer may be required to input credentials for the Services to access and receive relevant information from such Third-Party Platforms. By enabling the use of the Services with any Third-Party Platform, Customer authorises Frankli to access Customer's accounts with such Third-Party Platform for the purposes described in this Agreement. The customer is solely responsible for complying with any relevant terms and conditions of the Third-Party Platforms and maintaining appropriate accounts in good standing with the providers of the Third-Party Platforms. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Frankli has no responsibility or liability for any Third-Party Platform or App or how a Third-Party Platform (including Apps) uses or processes Customer Data after such is exported to a Third-Party Platform or App. Frankli does not guarantee that the Services will maintain integrations with any Third-Party Platform, and Frankli may disable integrations of the Services with any Third-Party Platform at any time with or without notice to Customer. For clarity, this Agreement governs the Customer's use of and access to the Services, even if accessed through an integration with a Third-Party Platform.

The customer is responsible for paying all Taxes, and all Taxes are excluded from any fees set forth in the applicable Order Form. If Customer is required by Law to withhold any Taxes from Customer's payment, the fees payable by Customer will be increased as necessary so that after making any required withholdings, Frankli receives and retains (free from any liability for payment of Taxes) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such withholdings been made. Any late payments may be subject to a service charge of 1.5% per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less.

    Foreign Transaction Fees. The customer acknowledges that for certain Credit Cards, the issuer of the Customer's Credit Card may charge a foreign transaction fee or other charges.

  3. 3

    Invalid Payment.

As set forth in Section 2.7 (Trial Subscriptions), if Customer does not enter into a paid Subscription Term following a Trial Period, this Agreement and Customer's right to access and use the Services will terminate at the end of the Trial Period, and Customer's Credit Card will not be charged.

  5. 5

    Payment of Outstanding Fees. Upon any termination or expiration of the Subscription Term, Frankli will charge Customer's Credit Card (or invoice Customer directly) for any outstanding fees for Customer's use of the Services during the Subscription Term, after which Frankli will not charge Customer's Credit Card for any additional fees.

7.4. Suspension of Service.

12. Indemnification

Customer will indemnify, defend and hold Frankli and their Affiliates harmless, at your expense, against any third-party claim, suit, action, or proceeding (each, an "Action") brought against us (and our officers, directors, employees, agents, service providers, licensors, and affiliates) by a third party not affiliated with Frankli or their Affiliates to the extent that such Action is based upon or arises out of:

  • Unauthorised or illegal use of the Subscription Service by Customer or their Affiliates, Customer or their Affiliates' noncompliance with or breach of this Agreement, 

  • Customer or their Affiliates' use of Third-Party Products, or

  • The unauthorised use of the Subscription agreement by any other person using Customer User information.

Customer will not accept any settlement that (i) imposes an obligation on Frankli; (ii) requires Frankli to make an admission; or (iii) imposes liability not covered by these indemnifications or places restrictions on Frankli without our prior written consent.

13. Confidential Information

Each party (as "Receiving Party") agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information it obtains from the disclosing party ("Disclosing Party") constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party ("Confidential Information"), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be confidential or proprietary due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. Any Frankli Technology, performance information relating to any Service, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement will be deemed Confidential Information of Frankli without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorised herein, the Receiving Party will (1) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties and (2) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know, provided that such representatives are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Disclosing Party than this Section 13 and that the Receiving Party remains responsible for compliance by any such representative with the terms of this Section 13. 

The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.

14. Publicity

Frankli may, upon Customer’s prior written consent, use Customer’s name to identify Customer as a Frankli customer of the Service, including on Frankli’s public website.
