Sitehelpdesk will provide, with reasonable skill and care, after sales off-site technical support, only where a valid license has been purchased and, for each 12 month period after the first anniversary of the date of the granting of this License, an annual support fee has been paid in advance.
Technical support will be provided between the usual office hours of Sitehelpdesk which are from 09:00 to 17:00 GMT and EST. .Although there is no requirement for you to upgrade the Software with each new release, technical support is limited to the current and immediately preceding release of the Software. Requests for technical support should arise from your technical support team and should be posted on the Sitehelpdesk support site by going to www.sitehelpdesk.com and following the links to the support site login. Such requests must include the information requested on the call log form and include sufficient documentation and information to enable Sitehelpdesk to verify and reproduce the error including screen shots, if requested by Sitehelpdesk. Technical support requests should only originate once you have used all of your internal resource to address the issue. Sitehelpdesk gives no representation or warranty that any technical support issue raised will be fixed or will be fixed within a specified period of time. However, Sitehelpdesk will use commercially reasonable efforts to fix technical support issues raised. Sitehelpdesk reserves the right to amend the technical support operating hours and procedure for logging technical support requests from time to time.
Additional support outside the limitations set out above will be provided at Sitehelpdesk’s rates from time to time in force. If additional licences are acquired by You after the date of this Agreement then the Software licensed under the additional licences shall only be supported by Sitehelpdesk if Sitehelpdesk is obligated to support the Software licensed under the first Agreement to licence Software to You by Sitehelpdesk (the “First Agreement”). Support and maintenance renewal for such additional licences shall be invoiced prior to the anniversary of the First Agreement with the renewal charge being adjusted to reflect the shorter or longer period between the anniversary of the Agreement granting the new licence and the anniversary of the First Agreement.
You agree that because of the unique nature of the Software and Sitehelpdesk’s proprietary rights therein, a breach of this agreement by you would irreparably harm Sitehelpdesk and monetary damages would be inadequate compensation. Therefore, you agree that Sitehelpdesk shall be entitled to preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, as determined by any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the provisions of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement or the Software thereof is declared void, illegal, or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement will be valid and enforceable to the extent permitted by applicable law. In such event, the parties agree to use their best efforts to replace the invalid or unenforceable provision by a provision that, to the extent permitted by the applicable law, achieves the purposes intended under the invalid or unenforceable provision. Any failure by any party to this Agreement to enforce at any time any term or condition under this Agreement will not be considered a waiver of that party’s right thereafter to enforce each and every term and condition of this Agreement. Neither party will be responsible for delays resulting from circumstances beyond the reasonable control of such party, provided that the nonperforming party uses reasonable efforts to avoid or remove such causes of nonperformance and continues performance hereunder within a reasonable period of such cause or causes being removed.
This Agreement, (i) constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, oral and written, made with respect to the subject matter hereof, and (ii) cannot be altered except by a writing executed by an authorised representative of each party. No purchase order shall supersede this Agreement.
This Agreement and its performance shall be governed by and construed in accordance with, and the parties hereby submit to, the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the laws of England and Wales.
