As a SaaS, Planhat’s availability is subject to several factors including server availability, a User’s Internet connection, and other issues. Planhat will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Service available without interruptions, however, the Service may be unavailable for reasons relating to availability of third-party services, maintenance, business operations, security, legal compliance or other reasons. When possible, Planhat will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer of any anticipated downtime unless there is a security, legal, or business-related reason for not doing so.
Should the Service be unavailable for more than 5 consecutive days following Customer providing written notice to Planhat, Planhat will issue a refund equal to the pro-rata length of the downtime, based on the current subscription.

Customer hereby grants Planhat a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right and license to use the Customer Data for the sole purposes of: (a) performing Planhat’s obligations hereunder; (b) analysing Customer’s use of the Service to improve the Planhat products and offerings; (c) on a purely anonymous and aggregated basis, producing reports relevant for Planhat’s customers or prospective customers; and (d) providing required information in connection with audits or regulatory requests.

The terms of the DPA shall apply to the extent Personal Data (as defined in the DPA) is included in the Customer Data.

This Agreement enters into force on the subscription start date stated in the Order Confirmation and remains in force until terminated by either party in accordance with this Clause 4.

4.2 TERMINATION FOR CAUSE
Planhat may suspend or terminate this Agreement if Customer has failed to pay Fees and more than fifteen (15) days have passed from the due date, after receiving at least one reminder from Planhat. A party may terminate this Agreement for cause (i) upon thirty (30) days written notice to the other party of a material breach if such breach remains uncured at the end of such period, or (ii) if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
4.3 CONSEQUENCES OF TERMINATION
After termination of this Agreement by Customer in accordance with this Clause 4 or by Planhat for any other reason than Customer’s breach of this Agreement, Planhat will refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Period after the effective date of termination. Termination will not relieve Customer of its obligation to pay any Fees for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
5. PRICING, BILLING & PAYMENT
Planhat subscriptions generally have three components to their pricing, a one-off integration fee, a fixed fee and a variable fee, based on number of accounts. The Fee and its components are outlined in the Order Confirmation.
Fees are generally billed annually in advance as specified in the Order Confirmation. Fees shall be calculated based on records maintained by Planhat.

Customer further authorizes Planhat to use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of payment information to such third party. If a payment is not successfully settled due to cancellation of a Credit Card, insufficient funds, chargeback or otherwise, Customer remains responsible for any amounts not remitted to Planhat and Planhat may, in its sole discretion, either (i) invoice Customer directly for the deficient amount (ii) continue billing the Credit Card once it has been updated by Customer (if applicable) or (iii) terminate this Agreement as set out in Clause 4.
