The organization, as the owner of the domain associated with your email address, may assume control over and manage your use of the Online Services.

j) Additional Software for use with the Online Services. We license Software to you; we do not sell it. Proof of your Software license is (1) this agreement, (2) any order confirmation, and (3) proof of payment. Your rights to access Software on any device do not give you any right to implement Monitzion or third party’s patents or other Monitzion or third party’s intellectual property in software or devices that access that device. If you use any third-party material (e.g., software or data) on the Services, you warrant to Monitzion that you are duly licensed to use the material, and that the license grants sufficient rights to Monitzion to provide the Services.
You acknowledge and agree that Monitzion may periodically run a series of audits on your Service(s). You authorize us to disclose the results of such audits to third parties.

(i) Commitment Offering. You commit in advance to purchase a specific quantity of Online Services for use during a Term and to pay upfront or on a periodic basis in advance of use.

Furthermore, the Customer shall make necessary decisions and give necessary instructions on its own initiative and without delay. Generally, Professional Services can be categorized as one or a combination of the following:

We will be responsible for all taxes based on our net income, gross receipts taxes imposed in lieu of taxes on income or profits, or taxes on our property ownership.

b) Technical Limitations
Customer must comply with, and may not work around, any technical limitations in an Online Service that only allow Customer to use it in certain ways. Customer may not download or otherwise remove copies of software or source code from an Online Service except as explicitly authorized.
The customer is prohibited to employ any hardware, software, device, or techniques to pool connections or reduce the number of users that access or use Software Services (also referred to as “virtualization”, “anonymizing”, “multiplexing” or “pooling”) in order to circumvent any restrictions on scope of authorized use, including but not limited to the number of subscriptions and/or user licenses.
c) High-Risk Use
WARNING: Modern technologies, and especially platform technologies, may be used in new and innovative ways, and Customer must consider whether its specific use of these technologies is safe. The Online Services are not designed or intended to support any use in which a service interruption, defect, error, or other failure of an Online Service could result in the death or serious bodily injury of any person or in physical or environmental damage (collectively, “High-Risk Use”). Accordingly, Customer must design and implement every application such that, in the event of any interruption, defect, error, or other failure of the Online Service, the safety of people, property, and the environment are not reduced below a level that is reasonable, appropriate, and legal, whether in general or for a specific industry. Customer’s High-Risk Use of the Online Services is at its own risk. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold Monitzion harmless from and against all damages, costs and attorneys’ fees in connection with any claims arising from a High-Risk Use associated with the Online Services, including any claims based in strict liability or that Monitzion was negligent in designing or providing the Online Service(s) to Customer. The foregoing indemnification obligation is in addition to any defense obligation set forth in Customer’s licensing agreement and is not subject to any limitation of, or exclusion from, liability contained in such agreements.
Current fees and charges are listed on the company website and/or product website. Unless a specific agreement for use of the Service(s) exists between Monitzion and You, you acknowledge and agree to pay the fee for the respective Service(s) indicated on our website at the time you submit an Order, or a Subscription renewal takes place. Monitzion reserves the right to change the fees at any time without notification. Changes in fees shall be effective immediately and will apply to you as of your next purchase or renewal.
You are responsible for the payment of the Fee(s) set out in the Order, according to the currency specified. You are responsible for all taxes levied on the Services, as well as related bank fees and/or a transaction fee of your selected payment method. There might be an extra charge related to certain payment methods, which will be added to the final amount to pay and/or may have a separate transaction fee charged from your account. If your payment is unauthorized by the issuer of the payment method, we will not be liable for non-provisioning the Services.
You acknowledge and agree that the processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the respective payment processor in addition to this Agreement.

In case of delay in payment of any fee(s) due, for whatever reason, we may continue to attempt to collect payment method on file, suspend, and/or terminate your Services and pursue collection costs incurred by Monitzion, including without limitation, any court and legal fees and our reasonable attorney fees. We are not responsible for any deleted or lost Customer Data that results from any suspension and/or termination of the Services.
If you believe there is an error on your invoice, you must immediately contact us in writing. We each agree to work together in good faith to resolve any invoicing issues. If you contract your credit card company and initiate a chargeback process based on the dispute, we may suspend your Services until the dispute is resolved.
