The term of this Agreement shall continue for as long as Customer is receiving Services, unless otherwise terminated pursuant to these Agreement. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE VALID FOR ANY FUTURE ORDER, ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE PORTAL, API AND/OR SERVICES AND/OR SUBMISSION OF SOURCE MATERIALS MADE BY CUSTOMER, WHETHER OR NOT THIS AGREEMENT IS EXPRESSLY REFERENCED IN SUCH ORDER OR SUBMISSION, UNLESS THE PARTIES HAVE MUTUALLY AGREED ON WRITTEN ALTERNATIVE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR SUCH ORDER.
4. SOURCE MATERIALS
Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, intellectual property ownership and right to use of all Source Materials, and the means by which Customer acquires, uses and submits the Source Materials, including compliance with any regulations and laws applicable to the Source Materials (including, without limitation any laws related to data privacy, export control, and transfer of data to and from the United States). Customer warrants that it is the owner of (or otherwise has full legal authority to submit) the Source Materials to 3Play Media for the purposes of 3Play Media’s performance of the Services. Customer is responsible for providing all notices and obtaining all licenses, rights and consents that may be required in order to allow 3Play Media to process and use Source Materials as described in this Agreement. Customer will not submit Source Materials that violate any applicable law or regulation. Customer agrees that 3Play Media is receiving only a copy of the Source Materials provided by Customer, and as a result 3Play Media is not responsible or liable for any loss of, or damage to, or destruction of any Source Materials, including without limitation, those that may occur in shipping or transmission electronically.
All Source Materials are subject to 3Play Media’s acceptance. 3Play Media has the right to reject any Source Material for any legitimate reason, including without limitation that it is considered to be of such poor quality that: (1) transcription is not possible, or (2) the project is beyond 3Play Media’s resources. If, in 3Play Media’s reasonable opinion, the audio quality appears to be difficult to transcribe or of poor quality, this may result in increased fees.
Customer retains ownership of all right, title and interest in and to all Source Materials. Customer grants 3Play Media permission to use the Source Materials as required for 3Play Media and its Personnel (and Vendors who are acting solely on 3Play Media’s behalf) to provide use of the 3Play Media Portal, the API, the Services and the Deliverables to Customer. 3Play Media may also use the Source Materials to help improve the Services, the API and the 3Play Media Portal, including without limitation, to train speech recognition models used in the Services.
Customer will indemnify, defend and hold 3Play Media harmless from and against any and all Losses incurred arising out of or in connection with a claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by a third party against 3Play Media arising out of the Source Materials or Customer’s use of the 3Play Media Materials in breach of the terms of this Agreement.
5. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Any copyrightable work in the Deliverables shall be a “work made for hire”. Notwithstanding the foregoing, 3Play Media reserves the right to maintain and use the Deliverables strictly for internal research and development.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that both during the term of this Agreement and thereafter, 3Play Media may collect, analyze, copy, display and use Aggregated Data for the purpose of providing, operating, analyzing, and improving the 3Play Media Materials and other 3Play Media products and services. 3Play Media will not disclose any Aggregated Data unless it is in aggregated and anonymized form that would not permit a third party to identify the data as associated with Customer. “Aggregated Data” means anonymized or aggregated data, statistics, and analysis derived from Customer’s use of the Services, the API and the 3Play Media Portal, and from the Source Materials and Deliverables.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that as between 3Play Media and Customer, all right, title and interest in and to the Services, the API, the 3Play Media Portal and Pre-Existing Materials, and in each case, all derivatives and copies thereof (including any and all patents, copyrights, utility models, industrial designs/design patents, trade secret rights, registered and/or unregistered trademarks, trade names and other proprietary and/or industrial rights embodied therein or associated therewith) (collectively, the “3Play Media Materials”) are and shall remain 3Play Media’s or its licensors’. All rights not expressly granted to Customer in this Agreement are reserved by 3Play Media and its licensors.
“Pre-Existing Materials” means any software, information, documentation, templates, frameworks, tools, methodologies, data, designs, concepts, ideas, techniques, processes, know-how, technology, algorithms, and plug-ins, owned or licensed by 3Play Media prior to the commencement or independent of the Services and all intellectual property rights therein, some of which may be included in the Services or the development of the Deliverables hereunder, and shall also include any enhancements made by 3Play Media to the 3Play Media Materials while performing the Services hereunder. Only if and to the extent any Pre-Existing Material is incorporated into any Deliverable, 3Play Media hereby grants to Customer a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty free, fully paid-up license to use such Pre-Existing Material solely for Customer’s lawful use, distribution and exploitation of the Deliverables and not separate therefrom.
3Play Media welcomes ideas, suggestions, and feedback related to the 3Play Media Materials or Customer’s use thereof (collectively, “Feedback”). All Feedback is provided completely voluntarily, and 3Play Media may use and incorporate any Feedback that Customer provides to 3Play Media into the Services and/or the 3Play Media Materials without restriction.

6. FEES; PAYMENT TERMS
Customer agrees to pay 3Play Media for the Services on the basis and at the rates specified in the applicable Order, or if no rate is stated then at 3Play Media’s then-current rates. All fees are in United States dollars. 3Play Media may increase standard rates and fees at any time (but not more than once annually) upon at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Customer. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, there are no refunds.
Customer may elect to pre-pay for the Services (herein after and in any Order referred to as “Prepaid Services” or “Prepay Commitment”) as identified on the applicable Order. This Prepaid Commitment is used as a credit against which Customer orders the Services as further described in the applicable Order. If Customer has ordered Prepaid Services, Customer acknowledges that the discounted rate offered for the Prepaid Services is provided in consideration of Customer’s promise to use the Prepaid Services in full, within two (2) years (“Balance Term”). Rates for such Prepaid Services ordered under the applicable Order shall not increase during the Balance Term. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, all fees for Prepaid Services are nonrefundable once ordered.
Customer may elect to pay for Services as they are performed (“Pay As You Go”) as identified on the applicable Order. If Customer has ordered Pay As You Go Services, Customer shall pay for all Services performed on a monthly basis, in arrears.
Unless otherwise set forth on the applicable Order, payment shall be due within thirty (30) days after the date of 3Play Media’s invoice (which shall be emailed to Customer on the applicable invoice date) and shall be made in US Dollars. If Customer fails to pay 3Play Media’s charges (other than charges disputed in good faith) within sixty (60) days after the applicable due date of the invoice, 3Play Media may suspend the provision of Services, access to the 3Play Media Portal, and transfer of Deliverables. For clarity, 3Play Media will not initiate suspension while Customer is disputing charges reasonably and in good-faith and is cooperating diligently in resolving the dispute.
Fees are exclusive of taxes. Customer shall be responsible for the payment of all sales, use and similar taxes arising from or relating to the Services rendered hereunder, except for taxes related to the net income of 3Play Media and any taxes or obligations imposed upon 3Play Media under federal, state and local wage laws.
7. CONFIDENTIALITY AND PERSONAL DATA
During the term of this Agreement, each party will regard as confidential any information that is: (a) provided to it by the other party and designated in writing as proprietary or confidential, or (b) to be reasonably considered confidential given the nature of the information or the circumstances under which it was disclosed (“Confidential Information”). The Source Materials are Customer’s Confidential Information. The 3Play Media Materials are 3Play Media’s Confidential Information. The receiving party shall hold in confidence, and shall not disclose any Confidential Information to any person or entity except to a director, officer, employee, Captioner, Vendor, outside consultant, or advisor (collectively “Representatives”) who have a need to know such Confidential Information in the course of the performance of their duties for the receiving party and who are bound by a duty of confidentiality no less protective of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information than this Agreement. Each party accepts responsibility for the actions of its Representatives and shall protect the other party’s Confidential Information in the same manner as it protects its own valuable confidential information, but in no event shall less than reasonable care be used.
Information will not be deemed Confidential Information hereunder if such information: (i) is known prior to receipt from the disclosing party, without any obligation of confidentiality; (ii) becomes known to the receiving party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing party; (iii) becomes publicly known or otherwise publicly available, except through a breach of this Agreement; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to the requirements of applicable law, legal process or government regulation, provided that it gives the disclosing party reasonable prior written notice to permit the disclosing party to contest such disclosure, and such disclosure is otherwise limited to the required disclosure.
The terms of the Data Processing Addendum (the “DPA”) shall apply to: (i) the processing (as defined in the GDPR) of personal data (as defined in the GDPR) that is regulated by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (the “GDPR”) by 3Play Media solely on behalf of Customer, if any; and (ii) the processing (as defined in the CCPA) of personal information (as defined in the CCPA) that is regulated by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”) by 3Play Media solely on behalf of Customer, if any.
8. LOGIN CREDENTIALS
In order to use the 3Play Media Portal, Customer is required to establish a login identifier and a password (“Credentials”). Customer is responsible for all activity associated with its Credentials. Customer is responsible for keeping its Credentials secure. Unless otherwise expressly set forth in the Order, Customer may order the Services for its own benefit only, and may not order Services on behalf of any third party.
From time to time 3Play Media may provide access to its API, and may provide the non-exclusive, non-transferrable right to access its API for the purpose of integrating the 3Play Media Portal with certain of Customer’s or a third party’s products, services or applications in order to facilitate transfer of the Source Materials and Deliverables. 3Play Media expressly reserves the right to limit the number and/or frequency of API requests in its sole discretion. If Customer’s use of the API significantly exceeds that of the average user (in the 3Play Media’s sole opinion), then the 3Play Media may throttle Customer’s use of the API. If Customer’s use is excessive to the point that it could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the API, the 3Play Media Portal or the Services or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the same, then 3Play Media may immediately disable Customer’s use of the API. Customer acknowledges that use of the API depends on third party network and Internet providers and third party products, services and applications that are outside of 3Play Media’s control, and as a result 3Play Media will not be responsible or liable for performance or non-performance as a result of any such third parties.
10. THIRD PARTY SITES
The 3Play Media Portal and the API may provide Customer with the ability to connect to third-party websites and applications to access its Source Materials. Such access is provided for convenience only. Interactions with such third parties and their websites will be governed by the third parties’ own terms of service and not this Agreement. 3Play Media does not warrant or control any third party website, or the availability of any third party website.
Upon receipt by Customer of the Deliverable, Customer shall promptly review and inspect the Deliverable. If Customer reasonably believes any Deliverable fails to comply with the applicable Accuracy Levels set forth in the SLAs, Customer has thirty (30) calendar days upon receipt of the Deliverable (the “Notification Period”) to notify 3Play Media so that 3Play Media may examine the discrepancy. If 3Play Media agrees with Customer’s determination, 3Play Media shall, at its option, either (a) correct the deficiencies leading to such failure and re-deliver such Deliverable no later than thirty (30) days following its receipt of written notice of such non-compliance from Customer, or (b) provide Customer with a refund of fees actually paid with respect to such non-conforming Deliverable. The foregoing remedy shall be 3Play Media’s sole and exclusive liability and shall be Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any failure to meet the Accuracy Levels. If Customer does not notify 3Play Media of the failure of any Deliverable to comply with the applicable Accuracy Levels during the Notification Period, such Deliverable shall be deemed accepted.
Neither party will knowingly input or upload into the Services, the 3Play Media Portal, the API, the Source Materials or the Deliverables any virus or other form of malicious code. Each party agrees that it shall comply with all applicable United States federal and state laws and regulations with respect to the performance of its obligations hereunder. The captions set forth in the caption files and the audio descriptions (each of which may be ordered as part of the Deliverables hereunder, and are provided by 3Play Media only if so ordered) shall be provided in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the quality standards established by the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) for accuracy, synchronicity, completeness, and placement as set forth in the FCC’s rules at 47 C.F.R. § 79.1(j)(2), the requirements for closed captioning of online video that previously appeared on television, as set forth by Title 2 of the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act for Video Programming (“CVAA”), the standards established in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act 29 U.S.C. § 794d and § 1194.24 and with the Information and Communication Technology Final Standards and Guidelines included in the Section 508 ICT Refresh set forth at 36 C.F.R. Parts 1193 and 1194, the standards and techniques set forth in WCAG 2.1 and 2.0 Success Criterion 1.2.2 (WCAG 2.0 standards are included in the Section 508 ICT). Customer will comply with all applicable laws related to audio and video recordings. Each party shall comply with all applicable export control laws of the United States. Unless provided for in a separate agreement, the parties shall not disclose any information (including Source Materials) requiring an authorization to be exported unless the authorization is required solely for export to countries subject to trade sanctions.
13. WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER
Each party represents and warrants that it has the full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and that it is binding upon such party and enforceable in accordance with its terms. 3Play Media warrants that the Services will be provided in a professional manner. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 13 ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES OFFERED BY 3PLAY MEDIA AND 3PLAY MEDIA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY. 3PLAY MEDIA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE 3PLAY MEDIA MATERIALS WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE 3PLAY MEDIA MATERIALS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
14. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, 3PLAY MEDIA WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSS OF PROFITS AND COSTS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF SAVINGS, LOSS OF SOURCE MATERIALS OR DATA, OR LOSS OF GOODWILL, IN CONNECTION WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES, THE 3PLAY MEDIA MATERIALS, OR THE PERFORMANCE OF ANY OTHER OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF IT IS AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE OCCURRENCE OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF 3PLAY MEDIA TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND DAMAGES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER ARISING BY STATUTE, CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED TWO TIMES (2X) THE SERVICES FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO 3PLAY MEDIA UNDER THE ORDER FOR THE SERVICES WHICH FORM THE SUBJECT OF THE CLAIM DURING THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. The provisions of this Agreement fairly allocate the risks between 3Play Media, on the one hand, and Customer on the other. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the pricing reflects this allocation of risk and the limitation of liability specified herein, and that 3Play Media would not enter into this Agreement without such allocation and limitation. Except for actions of non-payment, no action, regardless of form, arising out of or relating to this Agreement may be brought by either party more than two (2) years after the cause of action has accrued. IF YOUR JURISDICTION DOES NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, THE LIABILITY OF 3PLAY MEDIA SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.
15. TERMINATION, SUSPENSION
Customer may choose to terminate any Order at its convenience upon at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to 3Play Media, provided that 3Play Media will not provide refunds of any prepaid or unused fees, and Customer will promptly pay all unpaid fees associated with any Prepaid Services and any completed Services. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time upon thirty (30) days prior written notice if there are no active Orders.
Either party may terminate an Order and this Agreement: (i) immediately in the event of a material breach of this Agreement or the applicable Order by the other party that is not cured within thirty (30) days of written notice thereof from the other party, or (ii) immediately if the other party ceases doing business or is the subject of a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding, that is not dismissed within sixty (60) days of filing. If Customer terminates this Agreement for cause, 3Play Media shall promptly refund any prepaid unused fees. If 3Play Media terminates this Agreement for cause, Customer shall promptly pay all fees that have accrued prior to the termination date, including all fees associated with Prepaid Services and any completed Services and shall not receive any refund of fees paid.
All rights and obligations of the parties which by their nature are reasonably intended to survive such termination or expiration will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement and each Order. Except as expressly provided herein, termination of this Agreement by either party will be a nonexclusive remedy for breach and will be without prejudice to any other right or remedy of such party.
Upon any termination or expiration of this Agreement or the applicable Order, 3Play Media shall no longer provide the applicable Services to Customer and Customer shall cease accessing the 3Play Media Portal and APIs.
If Customer makes a written request within thirty (30) days following the date of termination, provided that Customer has paid all undisputed fees owed hereunder, 3Play Media shall provide Customer with a temporary mechanism to retrieve Source Materials and Deliverables in accordance with established and reasonable system access procedures. After such period, 3Play Media will have no further obligation to store and/or make available Source Materials and Deliverables and may delete the same, unless it is legally prohibited from doing so. Furthermore, Customer may at any time during the term of this Agreement request that 3Play Media delete Customer’s Source Materials.
In addition to 3Play Media’s other remedies hereunder, 3Play Media reserves the right to suspend Customer’s right to access the 3Play Media Portal and the Services if Customer violates its obligations under this Agreement. To the extent feasible and taking into account the impact on security of the Services, 3Play Media shall use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer in advance of any such suspension, and shall restore such access once the violation has been remedied.
This Agreement shall be binding upon and for the benefit of 3Play Media, Customer and their permitted successors and assigns. 3Play Media may assign this Agreement and all Orders to any of its affiliates or as part of a corporate reorganization, consolidation, merger, or sale of substantially all of its assets. Except as expressly stated in this Agreement, neither party may assign this Agreement either in whole or in part without the prior written consent of the other party, such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. And any attempted assignment without such consent will be void.
17. CAPTIONERS AND VENDORS
Customer acknowledges that certain elements of the Services may be performed by Captioners, and that 3Play Media uses Vendors to provide certain functionality that may be contained within the 3Play Media Portal, the API and as part of the Services. Without limitation, certain captioning and transcription Services in languages other than English and Spanish, and certain translation services may be provided by third party Vendors. 3Play Media shall be responsible for the performance of any Captioners and Vendors under this Agreement. 3Play Media shall have sole discretion in staffing the Services with its Captioners, and Customer consents to the use of any such Captioners and Vendors.
18. GOVERNING LAW
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any legal action or proceeding with respect to this Agreement shall be brought in the state or federal courts in Boston, Massachusetts. By execution and delivery of this Agreement, each of the parties hereto accepts for itself and in respect of its property, generally and unconditionally, the exclusive jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts. Each party knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally waives (to the extent permitted by applicable law) any right the party may have to a trial by jury of any dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement.
Customer grants 3Play Media the right to add Customer’s name and logo to 3Play Media’s customer list and to otherwise reference Customer as a 3Play Media customer.

Neither party shall make any contracts, warranties or representations or assume or create any obligations, express or implied, in the other party’s name or on its behalf.
21. FORCE MAJEURE
Nonperformance of either party shall be excused to the extent that performance is rendered impossible by strike, fire, flood, governmental acts or orders or restrictions, electrical, internet or telecommunication outage, failure of Vendors or suppliers, or any other reason where failure to perform is beyond the reasonable control of the non-performing party.
Customer agrees that 3Play Media may provide all notices to Customer via email or via the 3Play Media Portal.

Performance of any obligation required by a party hereunder may be waived only by a written waiver signed by an authorized representative of the other party, which waiver shall be effective only with respect to the specific obligation described therein. The failure of either party to exercise any of its rights under this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of such rights.
