Business Agreement

This Kitchtech Business Agreement governs access to and use of the Services and Beta Services. By clicking “I agree,” signing your contract for the Services, or using the Services, you agree to this Agreement as a Customer.

To the extent that Kitchtech Ltd is, on behalf of the Customer, Processing Customer Data that is subject to EU Data Protection Laws, by clicking “I agree”, you are also agreeing to the Data Processing Agreement and EU Standard Contractual Clauses, defined below, with Kitchtech, Ltc. for the transfer of Personal Data to processors.

If you are agreeing to this Agreement and, if applicable, the Data Processing Agreement, for use of the Services by an organization, you are agreeing on behalf of that organization. You must have the authority to bind that organization to these terms, otherwise you must not sign up for the Services.

  1.  Services.
    1. Provision. This Agreement governs access to, and use of, the Services and Software. Customer and End Users may access and use the Services in accordance with this Agreement.
    2. Security Measures. Any Kithctech personnel who have access to Customer Data will be bound by appropriate confidentiality obligations. Kitchtech will use industry standard technical and organizational security measures to transfer, store, and Process Customer Data that, at a minimum, will comply with the Security Measures. The Security Measures are designed to protect the integrity of Customer Data and guard against the unauthorized or unlawful access to, use, and Processing of Customer Data. Kitchtech may update the Security Measures from time to time. Kitchtech will provide Customer with at least sixty days prior notice if Kitchtech updates the Security Measures in a manner that materially diminishes the administrative, technical, or physical security features of the Services taken as a whole.
    3. Data Processing and Transfer.
      1. Data Processing. This Agreement constitutes Customer’s instructions to Kitchtech to Process Customer Data. Kitchtech and its Sub-processors will only Process Customer Data to provide the Services and to fulfill Kitchtech obligations in this Agreement. Customer agrees that Kitchtech and its Sub-processors may transfer, store, and Process Customer Data in locations other than Customer’s country. Kitchtech will inform Customer of any legal requirement which prevents it from complying with Customer’s instructions, unless prohibited from doing so by applicable law or on important grounds of public interest. The parties acknowledge that Customer Data may contain Personal Data, and a description of the Personal Data and further information about the Processing is set out in the Data Processing Agreement.
      2. Data Processing Agreement. To the extent Customer Data is subject to EU Data Protection Laws and is processed by Kitchtech on Customer’s behalf: (i) Kitchtech will use and process Customer Data as Customer instructs in order to provide the Services and to fulfilll Kitchtech obligations under the Agreement; and (ii) Customer agrees to the Data Processing Agreement with Kitchtech, Inc. for the transfer of Personal Data. The Data Processing Agreement applies only to the Services, and does not apply to Beta Services.
    4. Modifications. Kitchtech may update the Services from time to time. If Kitchtech changes the Services in a manner that materially reduces their functionality, Kitchtech will notify Customer at the email address associated with the account, and Customer may provide notice within thirty days of the change to terminate the Agreement. This termination right will not apply to updates made to features provided on a beta or evaluation basis.
    5. Software.
      1. Generally. The Services allow Customer and End Users to download Software that may update automatically. If any component of the Software is offered under an open source license, Kitchtech will make the license available to Customer and to the extent the provisions of that license grant Customer additional rights, those provisions will expressly override some terms of this Agreement with respect to that component of the Software.
      2. License. Kitchtech hereby grants to Customer during the Term a limited non-exclusive license to use the Software solely in connection with the Services and in accordance with this Agreement. This license is non-transferable (subject to Section 12.8), irrevocable (except as set forth in Section 7), non-sublicensable, and will be fully paid up upon Customer’s payment of the Fees.
    6. Customer Domains. Prior to providing the Services Kitchtech may require Customer to verify that Customer owns or controls the Customer Domains. If Customer does not own or control the Customer Domains, then Kitchtech will have no obligation to provide Customer with the Services.
  2.  Customer Obligations.
    1. Customer Administration of the Services. Customer may specify End Users as Administrators through the Admin Console. Customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords and Admin Accounts, and managing access to Admin Accounts. Kitchtech responsibilities do not extend to the internal management or administration of the Services for Customer. The Customer acknowledges that, if the Customer purchases the Services through a reseller and designates any of the reseller’s personnel as Administrators of the Customer’s Services account, the reseller may be able to control account information, including Customer Data, and access the Customer’s Services account as described above.
    2. Unauthorized Use or Access. Customer will prevent unauthorized use of the Services by its End Users and terminate any unauthorized use of or access to the Services.

Customer will comply with laws and regulations applicable to Customer’s use of the Services. Customer will not take any action that would cause Kitchtech to violate EU Data Protection Laws, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, the U.K. Bribery Act of 2010, or any other applicable anti-bribery, anti-corruption, or anti-money laundering law. Customer must satisfy itself that: (i) the Services are appropriate for its purposes, taking into account the nature of the Customer Data; and (ii) the technical and organizational requirements applicable to Kitchtech under EU Data Protection Laws are satisfied by the Security Measures and this Agreement. Customer will obtain and maintain from End Users any consents necessary to allow Administrators to engage in the activities described in this Agreement and to allow Kitchtech to provide the Services.

Section 164.051), unless Customer and Kitchtech separately enter into a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement, which may be done via the Admin Console.
    5. Third-Party Apps and Integrations. If Customer uses any third-party service or applications, such as a service that uses a Kitchtech API, with the Services: (a) Kitchtech will not be responsible for any act or omission of the third-party, including the third-party’s access to or use of Customer Data; and (b) Kitchtech does not warrant or support any service provided by the third-party. Customer will comply with any API limits associated with the Services plan purchased by Customer.
    6. Third-Party Requests.
      1. Customer Responsibility. Customer is responsible for responding to Third-Party Requests via its own access to information. Customer will seek to obtain information required to respond to Third-Party Requests and will contact Kitchtech only if it cannot comply with the Third-Party Request despite diligent efforts.

If Customer fails to promptly respond to any Third-Party Request, then Kitchtech may, but will not be obligated to do so.
  3.  Payment.
    1. Fees. Customer will pay Kitchtech or Customer’s reseller all applicable Fees for the Services, in the currency and pursuant to the payment terms indicated on the Order Form, or in the applicable agreement between Customer and Customer’s reseller. Customer authorizes Kitchtech, or Customer’s reseller, to charge Customer for all applicable Fees using Customer’s selected payment method, and Customer will issue the required purchasing documentation. Fees are non-refundable except as required by law or as otherwise specifically permitted in this Agreement.
    2. Payment. Customer will pay Kitchtech invoices on the payment interval set forth in the Order Form. Kitchtech may suspend or terminate the Services if Fees are past due. Customer will provide complete and accurate billing and contact information to Kitchtech or to Customer’s reseller.
    3. Taxes. Fees are exclusive of taxes and Customer is responsible for all Taxes. Kitchtech, or Customer’s reseller, will charge Taxes when required to do so. If Customer provides Kitchtech or its reseller with a valid exemption certificate, Kitchtech or the reseller will not collect the taxes covered by that certificate.
    4. Withholding Taxes. Customer will pay Kitchtech or its reseller net of any applicable Withholding Taxes. Customer and Kitchtech, or Customer’s reseller as applicable, will work together to avoid any Withholding Tax if exemptions, or a reduced treaty withholding rate, are available. If Kitchtech or Customer’s reseller qualifies for a tax exemption, or a reduced treaty withholding rate, Kitchtech or Customer’s reseller will provide Customer with reasonable documentary proof. Customer will provide Kitchtech or Customer’s reseller reasonable evidence that it has paid the relevant authority for the sum withheld or deducted.
    5. Auto-renewals and Trials. IF THE CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT IS SET TO AUTO-RENEWAL OR IS IN A TRIAL PERIOD AND THE CUSTOMER HAS ALREADY PROVIDED A METHOD OF PAYMENT TO KITCHTECH FOR THE SERVICES, KITCHTECH (OR THE CUSTOMER’S RESELLER) MAY CHARGE AUTOMATICALLY AT THE END OF THE TRIAL OR FOR THE RENEWAL, UNLESS THE CUSTOMER NOTIFIES KITCHTECH (OR THE CUSTOMER’S RESELLER, AS APPLICABLE) THAT THE CUSTOMER WANTS TO CANCEL OR DISABLE AUTO-RENEWAL. Kitchtech may revise Services rates by providing the Customer at least thirty days’ notice prior to the next charge.
    6. Purchase Orders. If Customer requires the use of a purchase order or purchase order number, Customer: (i) must provide the purchase order number at the time of purchase; and (ii) agrees that any terms and conditions on a Customer purchase order will not apply to this Agreement and are null and void. If the Customer is purchasing via a reseller, any terms and conditions from the Customer’s reseller or in a purchase order between the Customer and its reseller that conflict with the Agreement are null and void.
  4.  Suspension.
    1. Of End User Accounts by Kitchtech. If an End User: (a) violates this Agreement; or (b) uses the Services in a manner that Kitchtech reasonably believes will cause it liability, then Kitchtech may request that Customer suspend or terminate the applicable End User account. If Customer fails to promptly suspend or terminate the End User account, then Kitchtech may do so.
    2. Security Emergencies. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement, if there is a Security Emergency then Kitchtech may automatically suspend use of the Services.

  6.  Term.
    1. Agreement Term. This Agreement will remain in effect for the Term.

Unless otherwise specified on the Order Form, following the Initial Services Term or a Renewal Term, the subscription to the Services will automatically renew for a Renewal Term, unless either party gives the other written notice of termination at least thirty days prior to the expiration of the then-current Services term. If Customer has provided a payment method to Kitchtech for recurring charges as provided in Section 3.5, Customer may elect to terminate the Agreement via the Admin Console prior to the day a Renewal Term begins.
  7.  Termination.
    1. Generally. Either Party may terminate this Agreement, including all Order Forms, if: (i) the other Party is in material breach of the Agreement and fails to cure that breach within thirty days after receipt of written notice; or (ii) the other Party ceases its business operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within ninety days. Kitchtech may terminate this Agreement and suspend Customer’s access to the Services if required to do so by law or for an egregious violation by Customer of the Acceptable Use Policy.
    2. Effects of Termination. If this Agreement terminates: (a) except as set forth in this Section, the rights and licenses granted by Kitchtech to Customer will cease immediately; (b) Customer may, prior to termination, request reasonable additional time to export its Stored Data, provided that Kitchtech may charge Customer for such extended access based on Kitchtech then-current standard fees; and (c) Kitchtech will delete any End User Accounts and Stored Data relating to Customer’s account in a commercially reasonable period of time following receipt of an Administrator’s request to do so.

    2. By Kitchtech. Kitchtech will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer from and against all liabilities, damages, and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of any Claim against Customer to the extent based on an allegation that Kitchtech technology used to provide the Services to the Customer infringes or misappropriates any copyright, trade secret, U.S. patent, or trademark right of the third party. In no event will Kitchtech have any obligations or liability under this section arising from: (a) use of any Services in a modified form or in combination with materials not furnished by Kitchtech; and (b) any content, information, or data provided by Customer, End Users, or other third parties.
    3. Possible Infringement.

If Kitchtech does not believe the options described in this section are commercially reasonable, then Kitchtech may suspend or terminate Customer’s use of the affected Services or Software, with a pro-rata refund of prepaid fees for the Services or Software.
    4. General. The Party seeking indemnification will promptly notify the other Party of the claim and cooperate with the other Party in defending the claim. The indemnifying Party will have full control and authority over the defense, except that: (a) any settlement requiring the Party seeking indemnification to admit liability requires prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed; and (b) the other Party may join in the defense with its own counsel at its own expense.
