10. Service Level.
10.1. Service Availability. As set forth in the applicable Statement of Work, BreachBits shall make the Services available as commercially reasonable, measured monthly, excluding holidays, weekends and scheduled maintenance. Any downtime resulting from outages of third-party connections or utilities, a Force Majeure Event, or other reasons beyond BreachBits’s control will be excluded from any such calculation. Customer's sole and exclusive remedy, and BreachBits’s entire liability, in connection with Service availability shall be that for each period of downtime lasting longer than one day, BreachBits will credit Customer ten percent (10%) of Service fees for each day of consecutive downtime; provided that no more than one such credit will accrue per week. Downtime shall begin to accrue as soon as Customer (with notice to BreachBits) recognizes that downtime is taking place, and continues until the availability of the Services is restored. In order to receive downtime credit, Customer must notify BreachBits in writing within twenty-four (24) hours from the time of downtime, and failure to provide such notice will forfeit the right to receive downtime credit. Such credits may not be redeemed for cash and shall not be cumulative beyond a total of credits for one (1) week of Service Fees in anyone (1) calendar month in any event. BreachBits will only apply a credit to the month in which the incident occurred. BreachBits’s blocking of data communications or other Service in accordance with its policies shall not be deemed to be a failure of BreachBits to provide adequate service levels under this Agreement.
10.2. Service Security. BreachBits will use commercially reasonable efforts to make Services safe and confidential. Only accounts authorized by the Customer will be given access to the technical data generated by and the reports provided in association with the Services; however, BreachBits may share or otherwise disclose any score generated by the Services or otherwise generated by BreachBits, for any purpose. BreachBits will never use Services to destroy, manipulate, or exfiltrate Customer data and will not disrupt Customer services, except as set forth in an Order Form, for phishing or internal testing services, or as otherwise explicitly requested in writing by the Customer. Any breach of data or report confidentiality, or destruction, manipulation, or exfiltration of Customer Data, or disruption of Customer’s services is considered an “Incident.” Customer's sole and exclusive remedy, and BreachBits’s entire liability, in connection with an Incident shall be that for each instance the BreachBits will credit Customer 100% of Service fees for the month in which the Incident occurred. In order to receive this credit, Customer must notify BreachBits in writing within ninety-six (96) hours from the time of suspected occurrence, and failure to provide such notice will forfeit the right to receive this credit. Alternately, Customer may receive this credit if BreachBits detects such an incident within six (6) months of the incident. BreachBits will notify the Customer within twenty-four (24) hours of a suspected Incident and within twenty-four (24) hours after confirmation of a suspected incident. Such credits may not be redeemed for cash and shall not be cumulative beyond a total of credits for one (1) month of Service Fees in anyone (1) calendar month in any event. BreachBits will only apply a credit to the month in which the Incident occurred. Exfiltration and non-destructive manipulation of Customer data necessary for the operation of the Service (e.g. exfiltration of potential targets, exfiltration of data that might generate exploitation options, exfiltration of data that may be necessary to prove that certain actions were taken, or manipulation of empty or volatile memory sections), shall not be deemed to be an Incident under this Agreement.
10.3. Privacy/Security Laws. The Parties recognize and agree that: (1) BreachBits does not provide data storage or processing; (2) BreachBits is not expected to collect, store, otherwise process, or have directly disclosed to it personally identifiable information; (3) any Customer Data access BreachBits may have through the Services would be incidental and meant to be temporary and would not be intended for data processing; and (4) as to Customer Data, BreachBits is not and will not be a “data processor” pursuant to the laws of the United Kingdom or the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) or a “third party” or “service provider” to Customer pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) law, and BreachBits has and will have no comparable role or status pursuant to other laws governing personal information (collectively with GDPR and CCPA, “Privacy/Security Laws”).
If Customer itself is subject to any Privacy/Security Laws, Customer shall notify BreachBits and provide BreachBits with a copy of all employee policies relating to collection and use of employee data and any other related Customer data privacy and security policies (“Customer Data Policies”). Pursuant to Section 5.2, Customer shall include in the Customer Data Policies, or otherwise notify its Affiliates and Facilities about, any and all necessary descriptions of the Services as required by the applicable Privacy/Security Laws and shall take any other steps required by law to permit BreachBits to perform the Services. BreachBits will make commercially reasonable efforts to comply with any Customer Data Policies received and acknowledged by BreachBits. If BreachBits receives a “right to know,” deletion, “right to be forgotten,” or similar request related to Customer Data, BreachBits is not required to respond on Customer’s behalf or on BreachBits’s own behalf, but we may do so. BreachBits shall comply with any similar request related to Customer Data from Customer, on reasonable notice.
Nothing in this Agreement precludes BreachBits from asserting rights or defenses it may have under applicable law related to such requests or any Privacy/Security Laws. Customer recognizes and agrees that BreachBits may charge additional fees (without limitation) (i) for activities (if any) required of BreachBits by Privacy/Security Laws related to Customer Data and (ii) for activities Customer requests and BreachBits agrees to perform to help Customer comply with Privacy/Security Laws.
10.4. Support. BreachBits will provide Technical Support to Customer via electronic mail on weekdays during the hours of 9:00 am through 4:00 pm Eastern time, with the exclusion of federal holidays (“Support Hours”). Customer may initiate a helpdesk ticket during Support Hours by submitting a trouble ticket via the online help desk or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. BreachBits will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to all Helpdesk tickets within five (5) business days.
11.1. Audit. Customer and each User shall, upon reasonable written notice and during normal business hours, provide access to and allow BreachBits to inspect and audit the relevant portions of Customer’s computers and systems on which any BreachBits’s Intellectual Property resides together with any other books and records related to the BreachBits’s Intellectual Property (including without limitation, books and records relating to the identity of Permitted Users) in order to confirm Licensee’s and each Permitted User’s compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Promptly following BreachBits’s request therefor, Customer shall provide to BreachBits, copies of all books and records reasonably requested by BreachBits for the purpose of confirming compliance with the terms of this Agreement. In the event that any such audit or review by BreachBits or its agent discloses an underpayment, such underpayment shall be promptly paid and, if the amount of such underpayment is greater than five percent (5%) of the amount that was due, Customer shall be responsible for paying the cost of such audit or review.
11.2. Export Compliance. Customer and Users may not remove or export from the United States or allow the export or re-export of the Services, Software or anything related thereto, or any direct product thereof in violation of any restrictions, laws or regulations of the United States Department of Commerce, the United States Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control, or any other United States or foreign agency or authority. As defined in FAR Section 2.101, the Software and documentation are “commercial items” and according to DFAR Section 252.227-7014(a)(1) and (5) are deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation.” Consistent with DFAR Section 227.7202 and FAR Section 12.212, any use modification, reproduction, release, performance, display, or disclosure of such commercial software or commercial software documentation by the U.S. Government will be governed solely by the terms of this Agreement and will be prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by the terms of this Agreement.
