If Subscriber is an entity, the term Subscriber shall include Subscriber, and all of Subscriber’s affiliates, employees, representatives, contractors, and users of the Services. The agreement by an employee, consultant or contractor acting on behalf of an entity to these terms will be deemed to be the agreement of that entity. Any such employee, consultant or contractor hereby represents and warrants that he, she or it has authority, or has been provided authority, to bind the entity to this EULA.
TigerConnect, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“TigerConnect”) is only willing to grant Subscriber access to the Services if Subscriber accepts all of the terms of this EULA. If Subscriber and TigerConnect have both executed a written agreement that governs access to or use of the Services (an “Order Form”), then the terms of the Order Form shall govern and control to the extent there is a direct conflict between the terms of this EULA and the terms of the Order Form.
Each of Subscriber and TigerConnect may be referred to herein as a “party,” and Subscriber and TigerConnect together may be referred to as the “parties.”
2. PERMITTED USES AND RESTRICTIONS

Subscriber is entitled to freely allocate, transfer, or cancel user subscriptions among individuals it authorizes to use the Services (its “Authorized Users”), subject to the maximum number of Authorized Users indicated in the applicable Order Form. Any Authorized Users provisioned on the system or otherwise using the Services will be subject to the per-seat license charge (or other prorated charge if the license is on other than a per-seat basis) set forth in the applicable Order Form for the remainder of the subscription term indicated in such Order Form. Subscriber remains at all times fully liable for the acts and omissions of each Authorized User.

If the parties have not entered into an Order Form, the Effective Date is the date Subscriber accepts the terms herein or first accesses, downloads or uses any of the Services, and the EULA Term shall be for so long as Subscriber uses or accesses any of the Services.
Either TigerConnect or Subscriber may terminate this EULA, and all underlying Order Forms, without penalty when the other party has materially breached the terms of this EULA or any Order Form and fails to cure such breach within fifteen (15) days’ notice of such breach. Termination of this EULA for material breach shall cause all Order Forms to terminate. In addition, if Subscriber fails to make any payment to TigerConnect when due, TigerConnect may withhold further Services upon 30 days’ prior notice (email notice being sufficient).
Upon termination of the EULA Term, Subscriber shall no longer be permitted to use or access the Services. The terms herein that contemplate obligations after the EULA Term, including but not limited to Indemnification, Disclaimer, Limitation of Liability, Controlling Law and Severability, and Confidentiality, shall survive termination.

h. Force Majeure. TigerConnect shall not be liable to Subscriber or others for failure to perform under this EULA if the failure results, directly or indirectly, from government action or inaction, mechanical or electrical breakdown, war, civil, unrest, natural disaster or other cause beyond its reasonable control. If either party is affected by an interruption or delay contemplated by this Section, it will: (a) promptly provide notice to the other party, explaining the full particulars and the expected duration of the delay and (b) use its commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the interruption or delay if it is reasonably capable of being remedied.
