4.6 The Customer may request to increase and/or extend the number of permitted Tyk Gateways, provided that the Customer pays such additional fees as determined by Tyk. Tyk reserves the right to refuse such Customer request; such refusal shall not give rise to a Customer right to terminate under this agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the Customer shall not be permitted to decrease the number of permitted Tyk Gateways under this agreement.
4.7 The Customer shall be responsible for ensuring the security and confidentiality of all log-on identifiers, including usernames and passwords, assigned to, or created by, the Customer in order to access or use the Software (“ID“).

The Customer acknowledges that it is responsible for all charges for internet access (including mobile data usage) charged by its internet service provider.
4.11 The Customer shall be required, within 7 days of the Effective Date, to appoint a Customer contact who will be available to liaise with Tyk, and respond to queries from Tyk in respect of this agreement within a reasonable timeframe (“System Administrator“). For the duration of this agreement, the Customer shall promptly notify Tyk of any change to the System Administrator (including, without limitation, contact details). In the absence of the Customer’s appointment of a System Administrator, the default appointment shall be the individual who applied to use the Software. In the event that the System Administrator fails to respond to Tyk, Tyk reserves the right to charge a reasonable fee for time spent contacting the System Administrator and/or contacting the Customer in respect of its failure to abide by its notification requirement in this clause 3.11.
5.1 At its sole discretion, Tyk may provide support and troubleshooting services in respect of the Software (“Support Services“) by way of any channel Tyk selects. However Tyk shall not be under an obligation to provide Support Services under this agreement and, in any event, Support Services shall not be supplied in respect of Community Access. Time shall not be of the essence in respect of any Support Services. In the event that the Customer requires additional support services, it shall be required to enter a separate support agreement with Tyk (details of which are available on request).
5.2 Subject to clause 4.1:

(c) Tyk shall not support the Software if the Customer fails to maintain the Software at Tyk’s specified release level unless otherwise agreed between the parties in writing;
(d) Tyk may make changes to the Support Services without notice to the Customer;
(e) Tyk shall not provide Support Services where faults arise from misuse or incorrect use of the Software, use of the Software in combination with equipment or software not designated by Tyk for use with the Software, relocation or installation of the Software by anyone other than Tyk, operator error and/or otherwise at the reasonable justification of Tyk.
5.3 The Customer shall not be permitted to use an alternative company to support and/or maintain the Software.
5.4 The Customer shall reimburse any reasonable travel or subsistence expenses incurred by Tyk where such expenses are incurred wholly and exclusively for the purpose of providing on-site support, provided that any request for reimbursement is in the form of an invoice accompanied by receipts.
6.1 In relation to the Software, the Customer shall pay to Tyk the Fee in full and in advance of Tyk providing the License Key.
6.2 Without prejudice to the terms herein, the Customer acknowledges that, once the License Key has been transmitted by Tyk to the Customer, the Customer shall not be entitled to a refund (in whole or in part).
6.3 Tyk reserves the right to charge the Customer a fee in relation to Community Access.
6.4 All sums payable under this agreement are exclusive of VAT or any relevant local sales taxes, for which the Customer shall be responsible.
6.5 If the Customer fails to make any payment due to Tyk under this agreement by the due date for payment, then, without limiting Tyk’s remedies under clause 13, the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above Barclays Bank plc’s base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Customer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
6.6 The Fee is subject to review and increase by Tyk upon 1 calendar months’ notice, provided that no such increase will apply prior to the end of the first 12 calendar months from the Effective Date unless otherwise agreed on the Front Sheet.
6.7 Without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to Tyk and without giving the Customer permission to exceed the number of Tyk Gateways set out in the Front Sheet, in the event that the Customer exceeds the number of permitted Tyk Gateways, (“Over Usage“), the Customer shall (a) pay to upgrade its licence to include additional Tyk Gateways; or (b) pay the Penalty Fee in relation to its Over Usage; such option to be determined at the Customer’s discretion. It is the Customer’s obligation to monitor and ensure it does not exceed its permitted Tyk Gateways. For the avoidance of doubt, the Customer agrees to pay for its Over Usage by way of the Penalty Fee in the event that it does not upgrade to include the additional Tyk Gateways.
6.8 Fees are payable, in full, upon delivery and without deduction, set off or withholding of any kind. In the event of any dispute as to the amount of an invoice, the Customer shall pay the amount in full pending the resolution of any dispute and Tyk shall make any adjustment due immediately upon such resolution.
7. Confidentiality and publicity
7.1Each party shall, during the term of this agreement and thereafter, keep confidential all, and shall not use for its own purposes (other than implementation of this agreement) nor without the prior written consent of the other disclose to any third party (except its professional advisors or as may be required by any law or any legal or regulatory authority) any information of a confidential nature (including trade secrets and information of commercial value) which may become known to such party from the other party and which relates to the other party or any of its affiliates, unless that information is public knowledge or already known to such party at the time of disclosure, or subsequently becomes public knowledge other than by breach of this agreement, or subsequently comes lawfully into the possession of such party from a third party. Each party shall use its reasonable endeavours to prevent the unauthorised disclosure of any such information.
7.2 Subject to clause 6.3, either party shall be permitted to make, or permit any person to make, any public announcement concerning this agreement, without the prior written consent of the other parties unless otherwise agreed on the Front Sheet (which shall not include the commercial terms, and Fees contained within this agreement and not on Tyk’s website).

Neither party shall export, directly or indirectly, any technical data acquired from the other party under this agreement (or any products, including software, incorporating any such data) in breach of any applicable laws or regulations (“Export Control Laws“), including United States export laws and regulations, to any country for which the government or any agency thereof at the time of export requires an export licence or other governmental approval without first obtaining such licence or approval.
9. Intellectual property rights
9.1 The Customer acknowledges that all Intellectual Property Rights in the Software and the Tyk brand belong and shall belong to Tyk or the relevant third-party owners (as the case may be), and the Customer shall have no rights in or to the Software other than the right to use it in accordance with the terms of this agreement. Except as expressly permitted by this agreement, the Customer may not use any of Tyk’s Intellectual Property Rights without Tyk’s prior written consent.
9.2 The Customer acknowledges that it may create Intellectual Property Rights by improving or suggesting improvements of Software to Tyk. Any and all improvements to the Software and/or Support Services suggested by the Customer and developed by Tyk which result in the creation of Intellectual Property Rights shall be owned by Tyk. The Customer hereby assigns any and all rights to such Intellectual Property Rights in respect of the Software and/or Support Services to Tyk and waives its moral rights in respect thereof. The Customer shall execute and deliver such documents and perform such acts as may be required for the purpose of giving full effect to this clause 8.2.
9.3 The Customer acknowledges that it may create Intellectual Property Rights in any customisations to the Software (“Customisations“).

10. Data protection
10.1 Each party agrees that, in the performance of its respective obligations under this agreement, it shall comply with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation to the extent it applies to each of them. For the avoidance of doubt, Tyk shall not obtain access to personal data through use of the Software under this agreement, excluding any personal information provided on registration to use the Software (“Registration Data“).
10.2 Tyk shall process the Registration Data in the United States of America and the Client acknowledges and agrees to such processing in the United States of America.
10.3 Each party shall obtain and maintain all appropriate registrations required under the Data Protection Legislation in order to allow that party to perform its obligations under this agreement.
10.4 The Customer acknowledges and agrees that Tyk may use aggregate data derived from Customer’s use of the Software hereunder provided that Tyk has anonymized such data. Tyk may use in its marketing and advertising the total number of users, total number of stored claim records, total transaction volumes, and other aggregate statistics to attract new customers.
11. Supplier’s warranties
11.1 Tyk warrants that:
(a) it has the right to enter into this agreement and to provide the Software as contemplated by this agreement; and
(b) the Software shall, under normal operating conditions, substantially conform to the functionality described in documentation stated in the Front Sheet or, in the absence of a Front Sheet, as described on Tyk’s website (which may be updated from time to time).
11.2 If any of the warranties in clause 10.1 is breached, the Customer must notify Tyk as soon as possible. The Customer must give Tyk a reasonable time to fix the problem, including (in Tyk’s discretion) by making available a corrected version of the Software (as the case may be) or a reasonable way to work around the problem that is not materially detrimental to the Customer and/or by re-performing any relevant services. This will be done without any additional charge to the Customer. If Tyk is able to do this within a reasonable time, this shall be the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy in relation to such breach and Tyk will, subject to the terms herein, have no other obligation or liability in relation to such breach.
11.3 Tyk does not make or give any representation or warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, currency, correctness, reliability, integrity, usefulness, quality, fitness for purpose or originality of any of the foregoing content or data.
11.4 Tyk does not warrant that the use of the Software will be uninterrupted or error-free.
11.5 The Customer accepts responsibility for the selection of the Software to achieve its intended results and acknowledges that the Software has not been developed to meet the individual requirements of the Customer.
11.6 The Customer acknowledges that any Open-Source Software provided by Tyk is provided “as is” and expressly subject to the disclaimer in clause 10.8.
11.7 All other conditions, warranties or other terms which might have effect between the parties or be implied or incorporated into this agreement or any collateral contract, whether by statute, common law or otherwise, are hereby excluded, including the implied conditions, warranties or other terms as to satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose or the use of reasonable skill and care.
12.1 The Customer shall indemnify Tyk and its affiliates against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages or losses (including any direct or indirect consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by the Tyk arising out of or in connection with any claim by a third party as a result of the Customer or its users’ use of the Software in breach of this agreement (“Tyk Claim“).
12. 2 Subject to clause 12.1, Tyk shall indemnify the Customer against all damages and legal costs finally awarded against the Customer by a court of competent jurisdiction and/or amounts paid by the Customer further to a final settlement approved by Tyk, together with associated legal fees reasonably incurred by the Customer, as a result of any claim by a third party that the access and use, in accordance with this agreement, by the Customer of the Software, excluding Open-Source Software, infringes the Intellectual Property Rights of any third party (“Customer Claim“). This indemnity shall only apply to Customer Claims supported by a court judgement. It shall not apply in respect of alleged Customer Claims. For the avoidance of doubt, clause 11.2 shall not apply where the Customer Claim in question is attributable to possession or use of the Software (or any part thereof) by the Customer other than in accordance with the terms of this agreement, use of the Software in combination with any hardware or software not supplied or specified by Tyk if the infringement would have been avoided by the use of the Software not so combined, or use of a non-current release of the Software.
12.3 For the purpose of this clause 11.3, a Tyk Claim and a Customer Claim shall each be considered a “Claim“. If any third party makes a Claim, or notifies an intention to make a Claim against a party, the indemnitor’s obligations are conditional on the indemnitee:
(a) as soon as reasonably practicable, giving written notice of the Claim to the indemnitee, specifying the nature of the Claim in reasonable detail;
(b) not making any admission of liability, agreement or compromise in relation to the Claim without the prior written consent of the indemnitor (such consent not to be unreasonably conditioned, withheld or delayed); and
(c) giving the indemnitor and its professional advisers reasonable access at reasonable times (on reasonable prior notice) to premises, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives or advisers for the purposes of assessing the Claim.
12.4 If any Customer Claim is made, or in Tyk’s reasonable opinion a claim is likely to be made, against the Customer, Tyk may at its sole option and expense:
(a) procure for the Customer the right to continue to use the Software (or any part thereof) in accordance with the terms of this agreement;
(b) modify the Software so that it ceases to be infringing;
(c) replace the Software with non-infringing software; or
(d) terminate this agreement immediately by notice in writing to the Customer and refund any of the Fee paid by the Customer as at the date of termination (less a reasonable sum in respect of the Customer’s use of the Software to the date of termination), provided that if Tyk modifies or replaces the Software, the modified or replacement Software must comply with the warranties contained in clause 10 and the Customer shall have the same rights in respect thereof as it would have had under those clauses had the references to the date of this agreement been references to the date on which such modification or replacement was made.
12.5 Notwithstanding any other provision in this agreement, clause 11.2 shall not apply to the extent that any claim or action referred to in that clause arises directly or indirectly through the possession or use of any third party software.
12.6 Clauses 11.2-11.4 constitute the Customer’s exclusive remedy and Tyk’s only liability in respect of Customer Claims and, for the avoidance of doubt, is subject to clause 12.
13. Limits of liability
13.1 Except as expressly stated in clause 12.2:
(a) Tyk shall not in any circumstances have any liability for any losses or damages which may be suffered by the Customer (or any person claiming under or through the Customer), whether the same are suffered directly or indirectly or are immediate or consequential, and whether the same arise in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise howsoever, which fall within any of the following categories:

(iii) loss of anticipated savings;

(vi) loss or corruption of data.
(b) Tyk shall not be liable, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, under any indemnity or otherwise, for any loss, damage, expense or liability incurred or sustained as a result of:
(i) the use of the Software except for its normal intended purpose;
(ii) any adaptation or modification of any Software, or integration or combination with any other equipment, software, product or material not supplied by Tyk, in each case carried out by anyone other than the Tyk or without Tyk’s express written consent;
(iii) any defect arising in the Software as a result of misuse, wilful damage, negligence on the part of anyone other than Tyk, abnormal operating conditions or any failure by the Customer to follow any instructions of Tyk as to use;
(iv) the compliance by Tyk with any design, specification or instructions provided by the Customer or on the Customer’s behalf; or
(v) the continued use of a version or release of the Software after Tyk has made an alternative version or release of the Software available to the Customer, to the extent that any claim in respect of which Tyk would otherwise be obliged, under this agreement, to indemnify would have been avoided by the use of such alternative version or release;
(c) the total liability of Tyk, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise and whether in connection with this agreement or any collateral contract, shall in no circumstances exceed:
(i) an amount equal to the Fee paid to Tyk in the 12 month period immediately preceding the first incident giving raise to the loss; or
(ii) for an incident in the first 12 months of this agreement, an amount equal to the paid and projected Fees for that period; and
(d) the Customer agrees that, in entering into this agreement, either it did not rely on any representations (whether written or oral) of any kind or of any person other than those expressly set out in this agreement, or (if it did rely on any representations, whether written or oral, not expressly set out in this agreement) that it shall have no remedy in respect of such representations and (in either case) Tyk shall have no liability in any circumstances otherwise than in accordance with the express terms of this agreement.
13.2 The exclusions in clause 12.1 shall apply to the fullest extent permissible at law, but Tyk does not exclude liability for:
(a) death or personal injury caused by the negligence of Tyk, its officers, employees, contractors or agents;
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
(c) any other liability which may not be excluded by law.
13.3 All dates supplied by Tyk for the delivery of the Software shall be treated as approximate only. Tyk shall not in any circumstances be liable for any loss or damage arising from any delay in delivery beyond such approximate dates.
13.4 All references to “Tyk” in this clause 12 shall, for the purposes of this clause, be treated as including all employees, subcontractors and suppliers of Tyk and its affiliates, all of whom shall have the benefit of the exclusions and limitations of liability set out in this clause.
14. Term and termination
14.1 Subject to the Front Sheet (if any), this agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and shall, unless sooner terminated in accordance with its terms, continue for the Term and thereafter renew automatically for successive terms of equivalent duration (each a “Renewal Term“) unless and until terminated by either party giving written notice to that effect (such notice to expire at the end of the Term or any subsequent Renewal Term only).
14.2 Either party may terminate this agreement, at any time, by giving the other written notice if the other:
(a) materially breaches any term of this agreement and it is not possible to remedy that breach;

14.3 Without prejudice to clause 13.2, Tyk may, in addition, and without liability, terminate this agreement, or alternatively, may suspend access to and use of the Software, by giving the Customer written notice if:
(a) any invoiced amount (not then-currently being disputed in good faith) is outstanding beyond the due date for payment;
(b) any provision of clause 3 is breached; and/or
(c) the Customer is in persistent or repeated breach of any of its obligations under this agreement (whether or not it is the same obligation that is breached and whether or not such breaches are remedied).
14.4 In relation to suspensions under clause 13.3(a), access to the Software will be restored promptly after Tyk receives payment in full and cleared funds.
14.5 Fees shall remain payable during any period of suspension notwithstanding that the Customer may not have access to the Software.
14.6 The Customer may request to partially terminate the agreement in respect of the Software as defined on the Front Sheet. The Customer acknowledges that a subsequent decision to terminate will be determined at Tyk’s sole discretion. The Customer shall not be entitled to a refund in respect of any partial termination under this clause 13.6.
15. Consequences of termination
15.1 The Customer acknowledges that, due to the nature of the Software, and for the duration of the Term and any subsequent Renewal Term, it shall not be entitled to a refund (in full or in part) in respect of the Software for the Term and/or Renewal Term (unless otherwise agreed on a Front Sheet).

(h) the Customer shall pay for any use of the Software post termination in breach of this clause 14.3.
