2.1 Order Mechanism. Each Subscription will be obtained solely by execution or acceptance of an Order. Pursuant to execution of an Order and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and Customer’s payment of all applicable Fees, OutSystems will provide the Subscription to Customer specified in the Order during the Subscription Term. Customer may order multiple Subscriptions by executing additional Orders. Each Order is deemed to be a discrete contract, separate from each other Order, unless expressly stated otherwise in the applicable Order. In the event of a direct conflict between any Order and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of the Order will prevail only with respect to that Order and only if the Order is agreed to by each party. Orders may be entered under this Agreement by and between (a) OutSystems or an Affiliate of OutSystems; and (b) Customer or an Affiliate of Customer. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event Customer accepts an Order by submitting a purchase order, then regardless of whether OutSystems acknowledges, accepts or performs under such purchase order, OutSystems expressly rejects any terms on such purchase order that are additional to, or inconsistent, with the terms of this Agreement or the applicable Order.
2.2 Subscription Term. The Subscription ordered by Customer shall commence on the start date specified in the applicable Order and shall continue in effect until the end date specified in the applicable Order (the “Initial Subscription Term”). For Initial Subscription Terms which are committed for multiple years, each individual committed year may be listed as a separate line item in the applicable Order for administrative convenience only. Except as otherwise specified in the applicable Order, the Subscription Term shall automatically renew for additional periods equal to the Initial Subscription Term (each, a “Renewal Subscription Term”) at the renewal Fees set forth in the applicable Order, or if no renewal Fees have been agreed in the applicable Order, those set forth in the renewal notice sent to Customer at least 60 (sixty) days prior to the end of the then-current Subscription Term, unless either Party gives the other Party notice of non-renewal at least 30 (thirty) days before the end of the then-current Subscription Term.
2.3 Upgrades. If a New Software Version is released during a Subscription Term, and Customer has paid the Fees, the New Software Version will be made available by OutSystems to the Customer.
2.4 Subscription Sold Through Resellers and Third-Party Commercial Marketplaces. The Parties agree that Customer may purchase Software through resellers or via a third-party commercial marketplace, the use of which will be governed by this Agreement. Software purchased through a reseller or a third-party commercial marketplace, including multi-year Subscriptions, is not subject to cancellation by Customer. Where Customer purchases Software through a reseller, the reseller will enter into an Order with OutSystems that shows Customer as the “ship to” party and reseller as the “bill to” party. Reseller and Customer will enter into a separate agreement setting forth the fees to be paid by Customer to reseller for such Subscription. OutSystems agrees that, subject to receiving payment from the reseller, it shall be directly responsible to Customer, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, for providing the Subscriptions under a relevant Order. Customer acknowledges that OutSystems will not be responsible for the obligations of any reseller to Customer under such separate agreement, for the acts or omissions of reseller, or for any third-party products or services furnished to Customer by any reseller. For the avoidance of doubt, payment and taxes will be addressed in the agreement between reseller and Customer, and Sections 5.1 (Fees) and 5.2 (Payment) of this Agreement are not applicable to Subscriptions sold through resellers or third-party commercial marketplaces.
3.1 License. Subject to the terms of this Agreement and the applicable Order, OutSystems grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without rights to sublicense, to use the Software during the Subscription Term, for the sole purpose of building Applications for Customer’s own business processes, including access by internal users and external users as part of those business processes. If Customer has ordered a copy of the Software for self-managed download and installation, OutSystems also grants Customer, during the Subscription Term (i) the right to install the Software on servers it manages, and (ii) the right to make one (1) copy of the Software solely for backup purposes. OutSystems further grants Customer the right to make copies of the Documentation solely for Customer’s internal business purposes. OutSystems retains all rights not expressly granted to Customer in this Agreement.
3.2 Usage Limits. The Software licensed under a Subscription is subject to the volume, scope, and territory of use specified in the applicable Order.

In addition, unless Customer and OutSystems have agreed to additional terms to this Agreement in an Order or addendum to this Agreement, Customer may not (and will not allow any third party to), with respect to any Applications deployed under this Subscription: (ix) sell, rent, lease, license, sublicense, distribute, offer as a paid or free subscription, or include in a service bureau or outsourcing offering, such Applications; or (x) develop, test, host, or run and operate such Applications on behalf of third-parties to this Agreement. Except to the extent expressly permitted by applicable law, Customer may not decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to derive source code from the Software, in whole or in part.
3.4 Manner of Use. Subject to the terms of this Agreement and the applicable Order, Customer agrees not to use or permit use of the Software to display, store, process or transmit any Customer Content that may: (i) menace or harass any person or cause damage or injury to any person or property; (ii) involve the publication of any material that is false, defamatory, harassing or obscene; (iii) violate privacy rights or promote bigotry, racism, hatred or harm; (iv) constitute unsolicited bulk e-mail, “junk mail”, “spam” or chain letters; (v) constitute an infringement of intellectual property or other proprietary rights; or (vi) otherwise violate applicable laws, ordinances or regulations. If OutSystems receives information that Customer is in violation of any of the foregoing restrictions, OutSystems will notify Customer, and Customer will promptly take appropriate action to resolve such violation. If Customer does not take the required action in accordance with the above, OutSystems reserves the right, but has no obligation, to take remedial action if Customer violates the foregoing restrictions. OutSystems shall have no liability to Customer in the event that OutSystems takes such action.
3.5 Customer’s Content and Applications. As necessary for OutSystems (i) to provide Customer with the Support and Updates; and (ii) to operate, manage and improve the Software, Customer grants to OutSystems the right and a license to host, copy, transmit and display Customer Content and Applications in accordance with this Agreement and limited to such purposes only.

4.6 Provision of Professional Services to Third Parties.

12.13 Severability. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Agreement (including all Orders and addenda, if applicable), or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the Agreement will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the Parties, and the remainder of this Agreement or of the provision will continue in full force and effect, except to the extent such invalid provision or part of provision relates to essential aspects of the Agreement. The Parties agree that such provision or portion thereof shall be substituted by a provision with an equivalent legal and economic effect.
12.14 Force Majeure. No Party shall be liable for, or considered to be in breach of this Agreement on account of, any failure or delay in performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement (except for the payment of money) if such failure or delay is due to acts of God, fires, flood, storm, explosions, earthquakes, acts of war or terrorism, riots, insurrection, pandemic, intervention of any government or authority or any other reason where the failure to perform is beyond the reasonable control of and not caused by the negligence or intentional acts or omissions of the non-performing Party.
12.15.1 Self-Managed Subscription Verifications. For on-premises Software Subscriptions, OutSystems may request an on-site compliance verification no more than once per calendar year. For an on-site compliance verification, Customer shall allow OutSystems to perform such verification in relation to the use of the license under the Agreement. OutSystems shall give Customer a reasonable prior written notice of any on-site compliance verification to be conducted under this provision, which shall not be less than 30 (thirty) days. If a verification or Usage Data reveals that Customer has exceeded the scope of its license(s) grant, OutSystems shall have the right to invoice Customer using the current list price then in effect for such license, counting from the date of the first unauthorized or unlicensed use up to the end of the then current subscription term and/or the date of last usage if used after termination or expiration of the license(s).
12.15.2 OutSystems Hosted Subscription Verifications. For OutSystems hosted Subscriptions, if Customer exceeds its usage under the applicable Order(s) at any time during the Subscription Term or continues to use the Software after expiration of the Subscription, OutSystems may invoice Customer the applicable fees at the then-current list price in effect for such additional usage.
12.16 Waivers of Rights. No waiver will be implied from conduct or failure to enforce or exercise rights under this Agreement, nor will any waiver be effective unless in writing signed by a duly authorized representative on behalf of the Party claimed to have waived. No provision of any purchase order or other form employed or provided by Customer will supersede the terms and conditions of this Agreement and/or Order(s) executed with Customer, and any such document relating to this Agreement and/or Order(s) shall be for administrative purposes only and shall have no legal effect.
12.17 Attribution. Customer agrees that OutSystems may use Customer’s name and logo and indicate that Customer is a client of OutSystems on its website, in any public filings and through its marketing materials, including but not limited to press releases, case studies, white papers and webinars.
