Satori shall use commercially reasonable endeavours to make the Service available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week except for (i) maintenance periods (whether scheduled or unscheduled) and (ii) interruptions to the Service for causes beyond our control. Where possible, Satori will use commercially reasonable measures to provide advance notice of any expected service interruption.

The undertaking in the previous paragraph shall not apply to the extent of any non-conformance which is caused by use of the Service contrary to our instructions, or modification or alteration of the Service by any party other than Satori or our duly authorised contractors or agents. If the Service does not conform with the foregoing undertaking, Satori will, at its expense, use all reasonable commercial endeavours to correct any such non-conformance promptly, or provide you with an alternative means of accomplishing the desired performance. Such correction or substitution constitutes your sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of the undertaking set out in the preceding paragraph. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Satori:
The Service is provided to you strictly on an "as is" basis. All conditions, representations and warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of third party rights, are hereby disclaimed to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

As between you and Satori you shall own all the data you or your clients input for the purpose of using the Service (“Customer Data”).
We shall use commercially reasonable endeavours to protect Customer Data from unintended loss or damage. In the event of any loss or damage to Customer Data, your sole and exclusive remedy against us shall be for us to use reasonable commercial endeavours to restore the lost or damaged Customer Data from the latest back-up of such Customer Data maintained by us in accordance with the archiving procedure described in our back-up policy. Satori shall not be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration or disclosure of Customer Data caused by any third party (except those third parties sub-contracted by us to perform services related to Customer Data maintenance and back-up for which it shall remain fully liable us).

You must ensure that you have all necessary consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of any personal data to Satori for the duration of your use of the Service.
You warrant that:
You acknowledge and agree that Satori and/or its licensors own all intellectual property rights in the Service and the Documentation.

Each party may be given access to Confidential Information from the other party in order to perform its obligations under this Agreement. A party's Confidential Information shall not be deemed to include information that:
Each party shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that the other's Confidential Information to which it has access is not disclosed or distributed by its employees or agents in violation of the terms of this Agreement.
Each party shall hold the other's Confidential Information in confidence and not make the other's Confidential Information available to any third party, or use the other's Confidential Information for any purpose other than the implementation of this agreement. However a party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent such Confidential Information is required to be disclosed by law, by any governmental or other regulatory authority or by a court or other authority of competent jurisdiction, provided that, to the extent it is legally permitted to do so, it gives the other party as much notice of such disclosure as possible and, where notice of disclosure is not prohibited and is given in accordance with this provision, it takes into account the reasonable requests of the other party in relation to the content of such disclosure.
Neither party shall be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration or disclosure of Confidential Information caused by any third party.
Satori acknowledges that the Customer Data is the Confidential Information of the Coach.
The above provisions of this Confidentiality section shall survive termination of this Agreement, however arising.
You agree to hold harmless and indemnify Satori, and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from and against any third party claim arising from or in any way related to your use of the Service, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature.
Except as set out in this paragraph, Satori shall not be liable for any loss of business, loss of profit, loss of or damage to reputation, loss or corruption of data or for any indirect or consequential loss relating to its provision of the Service. In addition, Satori's total aggregate liability arising under the Agreement shall be limited to 100% of the price paid for the Service in the 12 months immediately preceding the date on which the claim arose, except in relation to losses caused by Satori's breach of confidentiality, intellectual property infringement or breach of applicable data protection legislation. This paragraph does not apply to, and does not seek to exclude, any loss for which Satori is not permitted by law to exclude liability for.
Satori shall have no liability to the Coach under this Agreement if it is prevented from or delayed in performing its obligations under this Agreement, or from carrying on its business, by acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving the workforce of Satori or any other party), failure of a utility service or transport or telecommunications network, act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm or default of suppliers or sub-contractors, provided that the Coach is notified of such an event and its expected duration.
No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under this Agreement or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
If any provision or part-provision of this Agreement is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this Agreement.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between them, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.
The Coach shall not, without the prior written consent of Satori, assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement. Satori may at any time assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement.

This Agreement does not confer any rights on any person or party other than the parties to this Agreement.
