Customer support agreement
© 2011-2023 OPTIMAJET LLC
OPTIMAJET LLC (“OPTIMAJET”) offers support and maintenance services (“Support and Maintenance”) for purchase under the following Customer Support Agreement (the “Support Agreement”) by OPTIMAJET customers that maintain a valid commercial license agreement with OPTIMAJET (“Customers”) for a OPTIMAJET software product (a “Product”).
BY PURCHASING SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE, EACH CUSTOMER CONSENTS TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT.
OPTIMAJET provides support and maintenance services only to OPTIMAJET Customers that have purchased Support from OPTIMAJET (each, a “Subscriber”) and solely under the terms and conditions of this Support Agreement. OPTIMAJET has no obligation to provide support other than as set forth in this Support Agreement.
Support is purchased annually (or as may be otherwise agreed to in writing with OPTIMAJET in connection with the purchase of Support by Customer) by paying the applicable Support fee specified by OPTIMAJET (the “Fee”). Payment of the initial Fee is due and payable on or before commencement of Support. The Fee for each successive period during which Support is purchased by Customer thereafter shall be due and payable no later than the last day of the previous period. If a Subscriber allows Support to lapse through non-payment, the Subscriber will be required to pay all Fees that would have been due for the period of such lapse prior to resuming Support. Subscribers purchasing additional Products during the current term of this Support Agreement shall be required to pay additional Fees prior to receiving Support for those additional Products.
This Support Agreement will begin upon the start date listed in OPTIMAJET’s invoice or other receipt of purchase and will continue until the termination or end date listed in OPTIMAJET’s invoice or other receipt of purchase. Thereafter, this Support Agreement will be renewed only upon receipt by OPTIMAJET of payment for the new term.
This Support Agreement will automatically terminate as to any Subscriber: (1) upon termination of the Subscriber’s software license agreement with OPTIMAJET; or (2) if Subscriber fails to pay the then current Fee when due or otherwise breaches the terms of this Support Agreement. OPTIMAJET has no obligation to provide Support following termination of any Support Agreement. However, OPTIMAJET reserves the right to provide Support to any Subscriber following termination of that Subscriber’s Support Agreement in its sole discretion.
5. Covered software versions
Support is provided only for Products that are actively being sold by OPTIMAJET, plus those versions of such Products that have not passed their End-of-Service date (as defined below). If the third-party providers of any software, software framework, platform or operating system that is not included in or with any Product cease to provide support for a specific version of that software, OPTIMAJET will no longer be obligated under this Support Agreement to provide Support for the Product in conjunction with that version.
6. End-of-service date
Upon issuing a new release of a Product (a version that contains additional functionality or new features, and is represented by a change in the initial digits of the version number to the left or the right of the first decimal point), OPTIMAJET will no longer issue enhancements for previous releases, nor sell previous releases, of that Product, except to Customers with a current Support Agreement. If a problem arises with a previous release, OPTIMAJET may, at its sole discretion, either (1) recommend a workaround, (2) issue a patch for the previous release, or (3) recommend the Customer upgrade to the current release. The “End-of-Service date” for a given release is either (a) the day before the following release is issued plus 1 year, or (b) the date OPTIMAJET discontinues selling the Software, plus 1 year.
7. Support services
A. Technical Support Contact. Customer will provide OPTIMAJET with one email address that will be used by Customer for management of all support incidents. The receipt of an email from the aforementioned email address will constitute the opening of one support incident for Customer.
B. Support Incidents. Customers will submit incidents via email to email@example.com. Response time for each incident is two (2) business days, if their number does not greater than four (4) in month. If number of incidents is greater than four (4) in month response time is not specified. Response time for support incidents does not include resolution time.
C. Escalation. Customer may indicate desire that an incident will be resolved over the phone or via web conference rather than via email when Customer opens an incident. OPTIMAJET will escalate the resolution of support incidents at its own discretion.
D. Training. Customer may purchase training as a part of a support package. Training content and cost is determined individually.
E. Upgrade Protection. OPTIMAJET will provide Subscribers with software releases, updates, upgrades, and/or software patches as issued by OPTIMAJET during the term of the Support Agreement as appears on OPTIMAJET’s invoice or other receipt of purchase. Subscribers shall be solely responsible for the installation and/or upgrade of the Products. OPTIMAJET reserves the right to charge an additional fee for major releases (new versions that contain major additional functionality and are represented by a change in the initial digits of the version number to the left of the first decimal point) of the Products. Any such software release, update, upgrade, patch or new version will be considered a part of the Product to which it relates and subject to the terms of the license agreement with OPTIMAJET under which such Product was provided to Subscriber.
F. Grace Period. OPTIMAJET will not provide Subscribers with software releases, updates, upgrades, and/or software patches upon expiry of the term of the Support Agreement. Once the term of the Support Agreement has expired, Subscribers receive a three-month grace period. In case Subscribers prolong Support during the three-month grace period by paying the applicable Support fee, OPTIMAJET will continue to provide Subscribers with software releases, updates, upgrades, and/or software patches once Support has been prolonged. If the grace period has expired and Subscriber has not prolonged support, the Subscriber is then required to purchase a new license for the respective OPTIMAJET’s Product to continue receiving software releases, updates, upgrades, and/or software patches from OPTIMAJET.
Support does not include: (1) providing access to new products, programs, modules or features that OPTIMAJET advertises or licenses separately from any Product; (2) support or fixes for errors that result from the unauthorized or improper use of any Product or that result from the failure to implement any relevant improvements or modifications made available by OPTIMAJET; (3) support or fixes for errors that do not materially affect the operation of a Product; (4) providing custom enhancements, features or modifications; (5) providing assistance for any Subscriber’s applications or other third-party applications; (6) providing direct assistance to Subscriber or any Subscriber end user; (7) on-site support; or (8) any hardware or related equipment.
9. Subscriber's responsibilities
Subscriber is responsible for:
A. providing and maintaining all hardware, operating systems, and third-party software required to operate each Product in compliance with minimum requirements for that Product;
B. providing and maintaining phone lines, internet access, and any other such infrastructure required to communicate with OPTIMAJET;
C. making reasonable efforts to solve problems related to any Product before contacting OPTIMAJET;
D. providing OPTIMAJET with all information, documentation and assistance as OPTIMAJET might reasonably require in order to perform the Support Services, including, without limitation, providing OPTIMAJET with the setup information, application knowledge, listing of any output, detailed steps required so that OPTIMAJET can replicate the problem, exact wording of error messages and any other data that OPTIMAJET reasonably may request in order to reproduce operating conditions similar to those present when the error occurred;
E. acting as the sole point-of-contact for Subscriber’s users and customers; and
F. possessing a valid license to each Product for which Support is sought.
10. Confidential information
Both parties recognize and acknowledge that all information and documents disclosed by either side during the course of its performance of its obligations under this Support Agreement, constitute a valuable asset of and are proprietary to the disclosing party. Therefore, each party shall keep confidential, not disclose or otherwise make available to any third party, and not use for purposes beyond the scope of this Support Agreement, any confidential information, advice or material of any nature that is provided or made available by the other party, including but not limited to, any written reports or other data, without the prior written consent of the other party. This section shall not apply to any information that: (1) is in or comes into the public domain through no breach by the recipient of the information of its obligations under this Support Agreement; (2) the recipient acquires from a third party who owes no obligations of confidence to the other party to this Support Agreement in respect thereof; or (3) was already known to the recipient at the time it received such information from the other party to this Support Agreement as shown by the recipient’s prior written records. If either party is requested or required by any legal or investigative process to disclose any information that it is not permitted to disclose, that party shall provide the other with prompt notice of each such request and the information requested so that the other party may seek to prevent disclosure or the entry of protective order. If disclosure is required and a protective order is not obtained, the party from whom disclosure is required shall disclose only such information that it is advised by its counsel is legally required to be disclosed.
11. Limited warranty
OPTIMAJET WARRANTS THAT THE SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE WILL BE PERFORMED IN A WORKMANLIKE MANNER IN ACCORDANCE WITH INDUSTRY STANDARDS. OPTIMAJET MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NONINFRINGEMENT, OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND RESPECTING ANY MAINTENANCE PERFORMED HEREUNDER.
12. Limited liability
THE TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF OPTIMAJET TO EACH SUBSCRIBER FOR ANY AND ALL LIABILITY ARISING UNDER OR RELATED TO THIS SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID TO OPTIMAJET BY SUCH SUBSCRIBER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WITHIN ONE YEAR PRECEDING SUCH LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT SHALL OPTIMAJET BE LIABLE TO ANY SUBSCRIBER FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DAMAGES RELATING TO LOSS OF DATA OR LOST PROFITS, EVEN IF OPTIMAJET HAS BEEN ADVISED BY THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY. THE FORGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE SUCCESS OR EFFECTIVENESS OF OTHER REMEDIES.
13. General provisions

If any provision of this Support Agreement is held to be unenforceable, that provision will be removed and the remaining provisions will remain in full force. If any proceeding or lawsuit is brought by OPTIMAJET or a Subscriber in connection with this Support Agreement, the prevailing party in such proceeding or lawsuit shall be entitled to receive its costs, expert witness fees and reasonable attorney’s fees, including costs and fees on appeal.

OPTIMAJET may assign this Support Agreement, and any rights or obligations of Subscriber hereunder, without the consent of Subscriber. Any assignment in derogation of the foregoing shall be null and void.
