PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND OUR PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING AND USING THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES (DEFINED BELOW).


THESE TERMS OF USE (“TERMS”) AND THE SERVICE ORDER(S) (COLLECTIVELY, “AGREEMENT”) GOVERN YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES UNLESS YOU (“YOU”, “YOUR” OR “COMPANY”) AND AURORA SOLAR INC. (“AURORA SOLAR”, “WE”, “US” OR “OUR”) HAVE EXECUTED A SEPARATE AGREEMENT GOVERNING THE ACCESS AND USE OF THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES.

Aurora Solar is willing to provide the Subscription Services to you, on a software as a service basis, only upon the condition that you accept all the terms contained in this Agreement. By clicking on the checkbox marked “Accept Terms” on the registration, log-in or similar page or by accessing or using the Subscription Services, you have indicated that you understand this Agreement, and you accept all of, and agree to be bound by, the terms of this Agreement, including these Terms. If the Subscription Services are to be accessed or used by or on behalf of a company or other legal entity, the individual expressing acceptance of this Agreement represents and warrants that he or she has the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to this Agreement, and “you”, “your” and “Company” will refer to that company or other legal entity. If you do not agree to all the terms of this Agreement, then you must not accept this Agreement and you may not use the Subscription Services. We may update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. If we do, we will let you know by posting the updated Terms on our website and/or may also send other communications. It’s important that you review these Terms whenever we update them or you use the Subscription Services. If you continue to access and/or use the Subscription Services after we have posted updated Terms it means that you accept and agree to the changes. Because the Subscription Services are evolving over time, we may modify features within the Subscription Services and/or update the Subscription Services from time to time, without prior notice to Company.

You may select individuals (employees or independent contractors) to access and use the Subscription Services on your behalf via your Account and you will obtain separate credentials, e.g., user IDs and passwords, from Aurora Solar for such individuals (each, an “Authorized User”). Aurora Solar reserves the right to suspend or terminate Company’s Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter is or becomes inaccurate, false or misleading. Company will ensure that Company’s Authorized Users, employees, agents, and representatives comply with all of Company’s obligations under this Agreement.

You will not share (and will instruct each Authorized User not to share) any user identifications, Account numbers, login user IDs, passwords, Account profiles or other credentials for Company’s Account with any other Person or otherwise permit any other Person to access or use the Subscription Services.

Your rights in the Subscription Services will be limited to those expressly granted in this Section 2.2. Aurora Solar and its licensors reserve all rights in and to the Subscription Services not expressly granted under this Agreement.

You shall not allow access to or use of the Subscription Services by anyone other than Authorized Users.

2.4 Acceptable Use Policies. You acknowledge and agree that Aurora Solar does not monitor or police communications or data transmitted through the Subscription Services and that Aurora Solar shall not be responsible for the content of any such communications or transmissions. You and your Authorized Users shall use the Subscription Services exclusively for authorized and legal purposes, consistent with all applicable laws, regulations and the rights of others. You and your Authorized Users shall not use the Subscription Services to transmit any bulk unsolicited commercial communications. You shall keep confidential and not disclose to any third parties, and shall ensure that Authorized Users keep confidential and do not disclose to any third parties, any user identifications, account numbers and account profiles. You acknowledge that the Subscription Services are not designed, intended or authorized for use in hazardous or mission-critical circumstances or for uses requiring fail-safe performance such as the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communications systems, air traffic control systems or weapons control systems, or where failure could lead to death, personal injury or environmental damage. You shall not use, and the above license does not extend to the use of, the Subscription Services for such purposes or under such circumstances.

2.5 Data Maintenance and Backup Procedures. In the event of any loss or corruption of Customer Data, Aurora Solar will use commercially reasonable efforts to restore the lost or corrupted Customer Data from the latest backup of such Customer Data maintained by Aurora Solar’s third party hosted services provider. Aurora Solar will not be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or corruption of Customer Data caused by any third party. AURORA SOLAR’S EFFORTS TO RESTORE LOST OR CORRUPTED CUSTOMER DATA PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION 2.5 WILL CONSTITUTE AURORA SOLAR’S SOLE LIABILITY AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IN THE EVENT OF ANY LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF CUSTOMER DATA IN CONNECTION WITH THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES.

3. FEES AND PAYMENT

3.1 Fees. You will pay Aurora Solar the fees set forth in the relevant Service Order in accordance with the terms therein and the terms of this Agreement (“Fees”). The Fees are non-refundable after the money back period as provided by Aurora Solar in the relevant Service Order. Aurora Solar reserves the right to change the Fees or applicable charges and to institute new charges and Fees at the end of a Subscription Term. Except as otherwise provided in the relevant Service Order, you will pay Aurora Solar the minimum monthly fee as set forth in the Service Order for use of up to fifty (50) Projects per Authorized User in the Account (the “Monthly Project Allowance”) for each calendar month following the effective date of the Subscription Term (a “Month”) within five (5) days following the beginning of each Month. If your Subscription Term is longer than one (1) Month, then at the end of each Month except for the last Month of your Subscription Term, the unused portion of the Monthly Project Allowance for such Month may be rolled over for use in the next Month in addition to the Monthly Project Allowance allocated for the next Month, provided that no unused portion of any Monthly Project Allowance may be rolled over from one Subscription Term to another Subscription Term and all unused Projects expire without any refund at the end of each Subscription Term. If your subscription is monthly, i.e. your Subscription Term is one (1) Month, you may not roll over any unused portion of any Monthly Project Allowance and all unused Projects expire without any refund at the end of each Subscription Term. Aurora Solar reserves the right to suspend or terminate Company’s Account for consistently repeated Overage under the Account. An “Overage” means when the total aggregate number of Projects used in a Month under your Account exceeds the Monthly Project Allowance. You agree that consistently repeated Overage is a material breach of this Agreement subject to Section 10.2.

3.2 Payments. Aurora Solar will charge the payment method provided by you for Fees on the applicable payment date, including any applicable taxes. If Aurora Solar cannot charge such payment method for any reason (such as expiration or insufficient funds), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, and Aurora Solar will attempt to charge the payment method again as you may update its payment method information. In accordance with local laws, Aurora Solar may update information regarding your payment method if provided such information by your financial institution. All payments due to Aurora Solar must be made in U.S. dollars. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, all payments are non-refundable. If you fail to make any payment when due, late charges will accrue at the rate of 1.5% per month or, if lower, the highest rate permitted by applicable law, and Aurora Solar may suspend your access to the Subscription Services until all payments are made in full. You will reimburse Aurora Solar for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) in collecting any late payments or interest.

3.3 Taxes. You are responsible for all sales, use, ad valorem and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind (other than any taxes imposed on Aurora Solar’s net income) imposed by any federal, state, multinational or local governmental authority on any amount payable by you to Aurora Solar hereunder (“Taxes”). Without limiting the foregoing, in the event that you are required to deduct or withhold any Taxes from the amounts payable to Aurora Solar hereunder, you will pay the applicable additional amount, so that Aurora Solar receives the amounts due to it hereunder in full, as if there were no withholding or deduction.

4. OWNERSHIP.
As between Aurora Solar and you, Aurora Solar owns all worldwide right, title and interest in and to the Subscription Services including all Intellectual Property Rights therein. As between you and Aurora Solar, you own all worldwide right, title and interest in and to all Customer Data and Aurora Solar will not obtain any ownership rights or interests in such data. You hereby grant and will grant to Aurora Solar a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, transferable (in whole or in part), sublicensable (through multiple tiers of sublicenses) license to: (a) use the Customer Data as is reasonably necessary to provide the Subscription Services hereunder for the term of this Agreement and (b) archive and perform analytics on the Customer Data and to distribute, publicly display or perform or otherwise use the results of the same provided such results are in an aggregated form that does not personally identify an individual person, and this license in subsection (b) is irrevocable and perpetual, and (c) to list on its website or in other informational or promotional material your business name (first name and last initial if you are an individual), city, state, country and website address to identify you as an Aurora Solar customer, and this license in subsection (c) shall be perpetual unless and until Aurora Solar receives written notice from you revoking such license under this subsection (c). The parties agree that the use of Company’s name as provided for in subsection (c) and any goodwill arising therefrom shall inure to the owner of such name, and upon written request, Aurora Solar will provide specimens of its usage and take corrective action as reasonably necessary to protect any trademark or other rights therein. To the extent you provide suggestions or feedback to Aurora Solar about its Subscription Services or Service-Generated Output (collectively, “Feedback”), you hereby irrevocably assign and will assign to Aurora Solar all right, title and interest you may have in and to such Feedback, and to the extent such assignment is not valid or complete, you hereby grant and will grant to Aurora Solar an exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, transferable (in whole or in part), sublicensable (through multiple tiers of sublicenses), worldwide, irrevocable and perpetual license under all Intellectual Property Rights to use and practice such Feedback in any manner, and irrevocably waive and agree to never assert any claim against Aurora Solar, its directors, officers, shareholders, employees or successors in interest relating to such Feedback.

5. NO WARRANTY; DISCLAIMER.
THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. AURORA SOLAR DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM AURORA SOLAR OR ELSEWHERE WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT.

You acknowledge and agree that the results and Service-Generated Output produced by the Subscription Services based upon the processing of Customer Data are estimates only, that Aurora Solar does not guarantee that these estimates will match actual measurements taken at a given site, that Aurora Solar does not guarantee the accuracy of any engineering designs or plan-sets or customer proposals based on the results or Service-Generated Output produced by the Subscription Services, and that the Subscription Services shall not be deemed a substitute for an actual in-person analysis conducted at a given site. Aurora Solar cannot and will not be liable for third-party criminal intrusions into our Subscription Services, despite our efforts to prevent the same.

7.2 Exclusions. Notwithstanding the terms of Section 7.1, Aurora Solar will have no liability for any infringement or misappropriation claim of any kind to the extent that it results from: (a) the combination, operation or use of the Subscription Services with equipment, devices, software or data (including without limitation Customer Data) not supplied by Aurora Solar, if a claim would not have occurred but for such combination, operation or use; or (b) your or an Authorized User’s misuse of the Subscription Services or use of the Subscription Services other than in accordance with this Agreement.

7.3 Injunction.

The parties acknowledge that Aurora Solar has entered into this Agreement in reliance upon the limitations of liability and the disclaimers of damages set forth herein, and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties. The parties agree that the limitations and exclusions of liability and disclaimers specified in this Agreement will survive and apply even if found to have failed of their essential purpose.

7.5 Indemnification by You. You shall defend Aurora Solar, its officers, directors, shareholders, employees and successors in interest (collectively, “Aurora Solar Indemnitees”), from and against any action or suit brought against an Aurora Solar Indemnitee by a third party in connection with your or an Authorized User’s use of the Subscription Services (other than any claim for which Aurora Solar is responsible under Section 7.1) including but not limited to a claim that the use or provision of Customer Data or your use of the Subscription Services infringe or misappropriate any Intellectual Property Rights or privacy rights of a third party, and will pay any costs, damages and reasonable attorneys’ fees attributable to such claim that are awarded in final judgment against or paid in settlement by Aurora Solar.

7.6 Conditions of Indemnification.

The Indemnitee has the right to retain counsel, at its expense, to participate in the defense or settlement of any claim. The Indemnitor will not be liable for any settlement or compromise that the Indemnitee enters into without the Indemnitor’s prior written consent.

8.1 Definition. “Confidential Information” means any business or technical information disclosed by one party to the other party that: (a) if disclosed in writing, is marked “confidential” or “proprietary” at the time of disclosure; (b) if disclosed orally, is identified as “confidential” or “proprietary” at the time of disclosure, and is summarized in a writing sent by the disclosing party to the receiving party within thirty (30) days after any such disclosure; or (c) under the circumstances, a person exercising reasonable business judgment would understand to be confidential or proprietary. For clarity, Customer Data is your Confidential Information and the Subscription Services are Aurora Solar’s Confidential Information.

8.2 Exclusions. The obligations and restrictions set forth in Section 8.3 will not apply to any information that: (a) is or becomes generally known to the public through no fault of or breach of this Agreement by the receiving party; (b) is rightfully known by the receiving party at the time of disclosure; (c) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information; or (d) the receiving party rightfully obtains from a third party who has the right to disclose such information without breach of any confidentiality obligation to the disclosing party.

8.3 Use and Disclosure Restrictions. A receiving party will not use the disclosing party’s Confidential Information except as necessary for the performance or enforcement of this Agreement, the exercise of any rights under this Agreement or reasonable internal business purposes and will not disclose such Confidential Information to any third party except to those of its employees and subcontractors who have a bona fide need to know such Confidential Information for the performance or enforcement of this Agreement, the exercise of any rights under this Agreement or to other fiduciaries with a bona fide need to know for a party’s internal business purposes; provided that each such employee, subcontractor and fiduciary is bound by a written agreement that contains use and disclosure restrictions consistent with the terms set forth in this Section. Each receiving party will protect the disclosing party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use and disclosure using efforts equivalent to the efforts that the receiving party ordinarily uses with respect to its own confidential information and in no event less than a reasonable standard of care. The provisions of this Section 8.3 will remain in effect during the term of this Agreement and for a period of three (3) years after the expiration or termination of this Agreement or after the destruction or disposal of the other party’s Confidential Information, whichever is later. Please review Aurora Solar’s Privacy Policy, which also governs your use of the Subscription Services, for information on how we collect, use and share your information.

8.4 Permitted Disclosures. The provisions of this Section 8 will not restrict either party from disclosing Confidential Information pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body; provided that the party required to make such a disclosure gives reasonable notice to the other party to enable it to contest such order or requirement or limit the scope of such request. The party responding to such an order or requirement will only disclose that information that is expressly required.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

9.1 Exclusion of Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL AURORA SOLAR BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS OR PROFITS) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE, OPERATION OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES OR THE SERVICE-GENERATED OUTPUT, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM ANY CLAIM BASED UPON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT AURORA SOLAR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE.

9.2 Total Liability. AURORA SOLAR’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, WILL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL FEES PAID BY YOU IN THE TWELVE MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE CLAIM OR ACTION GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY HEREUNDER.

This Agreement shall automatically renew for additional periods equal to the expiring term or as otherwise set forth in the Service Order (such additional periods, “Renewal Terms”) unless either party notifies the other in writing of its intent not to renew at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current term.

11 FORCE MAJEURE.
Neither party shall be liable for any alleged loss or damages resulting from any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder (except for the payment of money) due to events beyond the reasonable control of such party, which may include without limitation denial-of-service attacks, strikes, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, natural disasters, power outages, acts of God, war, terrorism, governmental action, labor conditions, earthquakes and material shortages (each a “Force Majeure Event”). Upon the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event, the non-performing party will be excused from any further performance of its obligations effected by the Force Majeure Event for so long as the event continues and such party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to resume performance.

12. THIRD PARTY TERMS. Aurora Solar uses Google Maps, services provided by Google LLC (“Google”).

Aurora Solar may freely assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under this Agreement will be without prejudice to its other remedies under this Agreement or otherwise. All notices or approvals required or permitted under this Agreement will be in writing and delivered by electronic mail, by overnight delivery service, or by certified mail, and in each instance will be deemed given upon receipt or confirmation where noted, provided that any notices or other communications provided by Aurora Solar under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, may be given via email or by posting to the Subscription Services or on our website. Subject to the foregoing, all notices or approvals will be sent to the addresses set forth in the applicable Service Order or to such other address as may be specified by either party to the other in accordance with this Section. The failure by either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible, and the other provisions will remain in full force and effect. This Agreement (including our Privacy Policy, all Service Orders and documents incorporated by reference) is the complete and exclusive understanding and agreement between the parties regarding its subject matter, and supersedes all prior agreements, proposals, understandings or communications between the parties, oral or written, regarding its subject matter, unless you and Aurora Solar have executed a separate agreement governing use of the Subscription Services. Any terms or conditions contained in your purchase order or other ordering document that are inconsistent with or in addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement are hereby rejected by Aurora Solar and will be deemed null. In case of inconsistency among these Terms and any other policy or statement on our website, these Terms shall control. The parties to this Agreement are independent contractors and this Agreement will not establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise, or agency between the parties. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent.
