If You provide credit card information to Us, You authorize Us to charge such credit card for all products and services listed in the Order Form for the initial Period of Agreement and any renewal Period of Agreement as set forth in Section 5 (Term of License). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, We will invoice You in advance and otherwise in accordance with the Order Form. Invoiced charges are due and payable net thirty (30) days from the invoice date.
- FEES LESS THAN $1,000
Initial license fees of less than $1,000 must be paid by credit card prior to receiving access to the Training and the LMS.
- LATE FEES
If any invoiced amount is not received by Us by the due date, or such charge is rejected by Your credit card issuer, then without limiting Our remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest of 1.5% per month or the maximum allowable by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) We may condition future renewals on payment terms shorter than those specified in this section. SafetyNow reserves the right to suspend Licensee’s access to the Training and the LMS for any accounts for which any payment is due but unpaid but only after SafetyNow has provided Licensee two (2) late notices and at least thirty (30) days have passed since the transmission of the first notice. In addition to any unpaid fees, Licensee shall be responsible for SafetyNow’s reasonable costs of collection, including but not limited to attorney fees. We may, at our election, choose to forgo the exercise of Our rights under this section to resolve reasonable disputes, without waiving those rights.
Our fees do not include taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Your purchases hereunder. If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible, We will invoice You and You will pay that amount unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income, property, and employees.
- FEES LESS THAN $1,000
At no additional cost to Licensee, SafetyNow shall make reasonable efforts to modify the Training from time to time to reflect material changes in regulatory standards by providing updates to standard content as regulatory requirements change and by making operating improvements, in each case the timing and necessity of which shall be determined by SafetyNow in its sole reasonable discretion (“Updates”). Updates may contain, for example, regulatory changes, additional questions added to the “question bank”, and “lessons learned” information gathered during previous years. Licensee requested changes to customize Training will be available for an additional fee to be negotiated and documented in a separate written agreement between SafetyNow and Licensee.
- TRAINING AND SUPPORT
During the term or extended term of this Agreement, SafetyNow shall assist Licensee with the initial setup of the Training and LMS via telephone and email support.

Upgrades to the then current version of the LMS product, as well as some additional LMS features, may be offered from time to time by SafetyNow at an additional cost.
- LIMITED WARRANTY; LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
SafetyNow warrants that if the LMS, Training, or Documentation fails to substantially conform to the specifications in the Documentation and the non-conformity is reported in writing by Licensee with reasonable specificity so as to allow SafetyNow to attempt to cure the non-conformity, then SafetyNow shall, in its sole discretion, either substantially remedy the nonconformity within thirty (30) days after written notice from Licensee, procure a substantially similar substitute product at no additional charge to Licensee, or refund the purchase price to Licensee. In the event of a refund, the license granted under this Agreement shall immediately terminate. This constitutes SafetyNow’s sole obligation and Licensee’s sole remedy with respect to the LMS. Except as set forth herein and in Section 12 (Indemnity), the SafetyNow products and services are provided “As-Is”. This is SafetyNow’s sole warranty, and Licensee’s sole remedy with respect to the LMS, Training, or Documentation. SafetyNow and any party involved in creating, producing, servicing, updating, or delivering the Training and/or LMS (collectively the SafetyNow “Related Parties”) shall not in any case be liable for any type of loss or damage arising from the content of the Training, including links to or from Our Training and errors and omissions in the content, and Licensee hereby agrees to hold SafetyNow and the Related Parties harmless from and against any costs, claims, losses and other liabilities incurred by Licensee based on its use or inability to use the Training and/or LMS whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages. We have made reasonable efforts to present the material accurately given the current information available when the course was created, however, it is not possible or even reasonably practical for all variables posed by on-the-job application of this information to be covered in the Training and/or LMS. Therefore, Licensee acknowledges that it has sole responsibility for ensuring the appropriateness and completeness of the Training as applied to its operational requirements, and to provide adequate training, including safety training, to its staff and others to whom Licensee provides training. SafetyNow does not warrant that the Training will be uninterrupted, timely, or error free. You are solely responsible for evaluating the fitness of the Training for Your particular purpose. The content in Our Training is provided as is without any warranties of any kind including warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property. The liability of SafetyNow arising out of any kind of legal claim (including, but not limited to, claims sounding in contract, tort, strict liability, breach of warranty, or otherwise) will not exceed the amount You paid for the most current annual license fee noted on Your Order Form.
- INDEMNITY BY SAFETYNOW
Notwithstanding the liability limitation noted above, SafetyNow agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Licensee from any and all liabilities, claims, and expenses including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from any third party claims that the Training (excluding any Licensee assignments) and LMS infringes or misappropriates any presently existing United States patent held by such third party, provided You promptly notify SafetyNow in writing of any such claim, suit, or proceeding and permit SafetyNow to control the defense or settlement thereof and cooperate in the defense or settlement thereof. This indemnity shall not apply in the event that You or any of your employees or representatives alter the Training or LMS and such alteration is a contributing factor in the alleged infringement or misappropriation. SafetyNow will have the option, at its expense, to employ counsel of its choosing to defend against such claim and to compromise, settle, or otherwise dispose of the claim; provided, however, that no compromise or settlement of any claim admitting liability of or imposing any obligations upon You may be affected without Your prior written consent.

You will have the option, at Your expense, to employ counsel of Your choosing to defend against such claim and to compromise, settle, or otherwise dispose of the claim; provided, however, that no compromise or settlement of any claim admitting liability of or imposing any obligations upon SafetyNow may be affected without Our prior written consent.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a party is acquired by, sells substantially all of its assets to, or undergoes a change of control in favor of, a direct competitor of the other party, then such other party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice.
