Upon completion of the work set forth in any SOW, Cloudnine will deliver a document via e-mail entitled “End of Project,” which will signify that Cloudnine has completed the work set forth in the SOW and that no further work will be performed by Cloudnine without Client executing a new SOW.

Confidential Information– To the extent that the completion of the Professional Services set forth in an executed SOW requires Cloudnine to access Client’s data, Cloudnine acknowledges that Client’s data shall be treated as confidential information. Client hereby authorizes Cloudnine to access Client’s data only as reasonably necessary to complete the Professional Services set forth in the particular SOW. To the extent that Client delivers a copy of Client’s data to Cloudnine, Cloudnine will only maintain that copy for purposes of completing a particular project, after which point Cloudnine will destroy all copies of Client’s data that it had in its possession. Cloudnine further warrants that it will maintain the confidential nature of Client’s data and will not disclose the data or its contents to third parties without the Client’s express written consent.
  3. Data Transfer, Migration, Importation, Copying or Manipulation– Where an SOW calls for data transfer, migration, importation, copying or manipulation, errors and omissions, or other factors which may result in data being over-inclusive, under-inclusive, or incomplete. To the extent Client provides Cloudnine with data for the purposes of transferring, migrating, importation, copying or manipulating, Client herby confirms that it has the legal right to provide the data to Cloudnine, and expressly authorizes Cloudnine to perform such tasks. Client further acknowledges that if a dispute arises over whether Client has the legal right to possess or control the data prior to Cloudnine performing the transfer, migration, importation, copying or manipulation, Cloudnine will not perform such tasks absent written authorization from the party originally disputing Client’s right to the data or a court order.).
  4. Modification/Customization– To the extent Cloudnine performs for Client any modifications, special features and/or customization to Client’s Cloudnine environment or related applications, , Cloudnine shall retain all intellectual property rights to such modifications, special features and/or customization.

Cloudnine shall provide Client with a 30-Day Warranty on any modification, special feature or customization following the delivery of the modification, special feature or customization to Client. After the 30-Day Warranty has expired, Professional Services can be retained on an hourly basis to assist with this assessment or analysis. Any such services shall be governed by a separate SOW.
  5. Training– To the extent Client uses Professional Service hours for training, unless expressly stated in an SOW or in a Service Order Form, all training will be provided remotely (i.e. not an onsite visit to Client’s location). Client acknowledges that if Client fails to attend a scheduled training session without providing Cloudnine with notice at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled training session, Cloudnine will charge Client the equivalent of one hour of Professional Services time. If such an event occurs and Client does not have any Professional Service hours in its account, Client’s credit card or ACH on file with Cloudnine will be charged $197. Client acknowledges that in certain instances, in order to facilitate training on Client’s actual data, Client’s data may be stored in Microsoft Azure (which may Client may be charged for).
  6. Payment for Services– Cloudnine will charge Client for the Professional Services contemplated in an executed SOW at a rate of $197 per hour. Client shall have an option to purchase Professional Service hours by the block at a discounted price based on the rate set forth in a Service Order or SOW executed by Client. The amount of Pre-Paid blocks of Professional Services hours purchased by Client shall not be deemed as estimate of the hours necessary to complete any Professional Services task or project. Cloudnine will not start work on those Professional Services until it has received written approval from Client for the amount of estimated allocated hours to complete the Professional Services, and either payment for the total amount of hours approved or approval to execute against the Pre-Paid block of Professional Service hours which Client may have on the books. Optionally, Client may request Cloudnine to bill for services rendered against the approved SOW, in which case, Cloudnine shall issue a progress billing invoice on a weekly basis, which shall be due upon receipt. Cloudnine may be required to charge sales tax on any and all charges for Professional Services. Any such taxes will be in addition to the amounts charged for such services. Cloudnine will not continue to work on a Professional Service project until the last progress bill payment has been processed and posted to the account. Client understands that the estimate to complete the services set forth in the SOW is only an estimate, and it may require more hours to complete the services. To the extent that additional hours are required to complete the work, Cloudnine will provide a change order request to be approved by Client and Client agrees to pay the additional hours estimated to complete the services set in the change order. Where Client has available hours in Client’s Professional Services Account, the additional hours needed to complete the services will be debited from Client’s Professional Services Account. Where Client does not have sufficient hours available in Client’s Professional Services Account to cover all of the hours needed to complete the services Cloudnine will invoice Client for the additional hours that have not been paid and Client agrees to make payment upon receipt of the invoice. To the extent that it takes Cloudnine less than the estimated allocated hours to complete the services set forth in the SOW or Client wishes to cancel the services or Project, the remaining hours purchased that were not expended by Cloudnine in an effort to complete the services contemplated by the SOW will be credited back to Client’s Professional Services Account for future use.
