(a) Scoop shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Workplace Planner available via the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for: (1) planned downtime (of which Scoop shall give advance electronic notice as provided in the Documentation), and (2) any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Scoop’s reasonable control, including, for example, an act of God, act of government, flood, fire, earthquake, civil unrest, epidemic, pandemic, act of terror, strike or other labor problem (other than one involving Scoop’s employees), general unavailability of Internet service or infrastructure, failures of non-Scoop products or services, or denial of service attacks.
(b) Scoop shall routinely backup (not less frequently than once-per-day) all Customer Content and use industry standard security measures to maintain Users’ login information (e.g., User IDs and passwords) for the Workplace Planner in confidence. With respect to all storage, backup, and archival media containing Customer Content, Scoop shall (1) physically store it in a secure area (2) logically separate it from any other customer’s data and (3) protect it by industry standard encryption methods.
3.2 Customer’s Responsibilities. Customer is responsible for Users’ compliance with this Agreement and for Customer Content. Customer shall not (1) use the Workplace Planner to store or transmit infringing, libelous, or otherwise unlawful or tortious material, or to store or transmit material in violation of third-party privacy rights, (2) use the Workplace Planner to store or transmit Malicious Code, (3) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Workplace Planner, or third party data contained therein, or (4) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Workplace Planner or its related systems or networks. Any conduct by Customer that in Scoop’s discretion restricts or inhibits any of Scoop’s other customers from using or enjoying the Workplace Planner is expressly prohibited. Customer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to, or use of, the Workplace Planner, and notify Scoop promptly of any such unauthorized access or use. Customer is responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware and other equipment needed for access to and use of the Workplace Planner and all charges related thereto.
3.3 Users. Customer may designate its employees, consultants, contractors and agents, Affiliates, or third parties with whom Customer transact business as a User. User subscriptions are for designated individuals and Customer shall not share a User subscription with more than one individual, but Customer may reassign a User subscription to a new individual replacing a former User who no longer requires ongoing use of the Workplace Planner.
3.4 Data Security. Scoop will use commercially reasonable efforts to comply with industry standard security measures with respect to personnel, facilities, hardware and software, storage and networks, access controls, monitoring and logging, vulnerability and breach detection, incident response, encryption, and other organizational and technical measures necessary to protect against unauthorized or accidental access, loss, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of sensitive data in its possession, as well as with all applicable data privacy and security laws, regulations, and standards.

Customer may submit to the Workplace Planner information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular natural person who is a resident of California, or with their household (“Personal Info”), and all such information shall be deemed Confidential Information.

Scoop shall not further collect, sell, or use the Personal Info except as necessary to provide the Workplace Planner specified in this Agreement. Scoop shall delete the Personal Info from its records upon request by Customer, unless it is otherwise necessary to retain such information under applicable law. The provision of Personal Info is not a component of the exchange of consideration in this Agreement, and therefore the provision of Personal Info is not a sale of such information. Scoop shall not sell the Personal Info. Scoop hereby certifies that it understands the restrictions on the sale, retention, use, and disclosure of Personal Info herein and as set forth in applicable law, and will comply.
4.1 Payment. Unless otherwise listed in an Order, Customer shall pay Scoop up front via credit card all applicable fees in U.S. Dollars in accordance with the terms listed on the Order.

Scoop may bill: (1) in advance; (2) at the time of purchase; (3) shortly after purchase; or (4) if Customer has elected a subscription service, on a recurring basis. To the extent Scoop has not received Customer’s payment, in order to bring Customer’s account up to date, Scoop may bill Customer simultaneously for both past due and current amounts. If Customer does not provide a notice of non-renewal, Scoop may automatically renew the Workplace Planner in accordance with Section 12 and charge Customer for the renewal fees. The subscription fees set forth in each Order hereunder are fixed during the Subscription Term of such Order, and are quoted in U.S. dollars. Customer may purchase an upgrade to its subscription tier during a Subscription Term at the rate specified in the applicable Order, prorated to the remainder of the Subscription Term. All fees are based on services purchased and not actual usage, payment obligations are non-cancelable, and fees paid are non-refundable. If Customer does not pay fees when due (and has not provided an accurate and authorized payment method for Scoop to charge), Scoop may add late charges at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. Customer shall reimburse Scoop for all reasonable, actual costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Scoop in the collection of overdue amounts.
4.2 Taxes. If Scoop has the legal obligation to pay or collect taxes for which Customer is responsible, including but not limited to, sales, use, transfer, privilege, excise, and all other taxes and duties that are levied or imposed by reason of Scoop’s performance under this Agreement, Scoop shall charge the appropriate amount to Customer. Customer shall pay all applicable taxes, unless Customer provides Scoop with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
4.3 Suspension of Services. If any amount owed by Customer is 30 days or more overdue, Scoop may, without limiting Scoop’s other rights and remedies, suspend access to the Workplace Planner until Customer pays such amounts owed. Scoop will not suspend access to the Workplace Planner to the extent the applicable charges are under reasonable and good-faith dispute and Customer is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute. Customer remains obligated to pay Scoop for all fees due that are not under reasonable and good faith dispute. The parties shall work together expeditiously and in good faith to resolve all fee disputes.
