Terms & Policies

Terms of Sale

  1. Applicability.
    • Sole Terms. These Terms of Sale (these “Terms”) are the only terms and conditions that govern the sale and provision of services by Iotas, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company”) to its customers, clients, and end users (collectively, “Customers” and each a “Customer”).
    • Entire Agreement and Priority. The accompanying order confirmation (the “Order Confirmation”) and these Terms (collectively, this “Agreement”) comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the Order Confirmation, these Terms shall govern, unless the Order Confirmation expressly states that the terms and conditions of the Order Confirmation shall control.
    • Priority Over Customer’s Terms. These Terms prevail over any of Customer’s general terms and conditions regardless whether or when Customer has submitted its request for proposal, order, or such terms. Provision of services to Customer does not constitute acceptance of any of Customer’s terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms.
  2. Services. The Company shall provide the services to Customer as described in the Order Confirmation (the “Services”) in accordance with these Terms.
  3. Performance Dates. The Company shall use reasonable efforts to meet any performance dates specified in the Order Confirmation, and any such dates shall be estimates only.
  4. Customer’s Obligations. Customer shall:
    • Cooperation. Cooperate with the Company in all matters relating to the Services and provide such access to Customer’s premises, and such accommodation and other facilities as may reasonably be requested by the Company, for the purposes of performing the Services;
    • Respond Promptly.  Respond promptly to the Company’s request to provide direction, information, approvals, authorizations or decisions that are reasonably necessary for the Company to perform the Services in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement;
    • Provide Materials. Provide such customer materials or information as the Company may request and Customer considers reasonably necessary to carry out the Services in a timely manner and ensure that such customer materials or information are complete and accurate in all material respects; and
    • Internet Service and Permits. Obtain and maintain internet service for Customer’s premises, and all necessary licenses and consents and comply with all applicable laws in relation to the Services before the date on which the Services are to start.
  5. Customer’s Acts or Omissions. If the Company’s performance of its obligations under this Agreement is prevented or delayed by any act or omission of Customer or its agents, subcontractors, consultants or employees, the Company shall not be deemed in breach of its obligations under this Agreement or otherwise liable for any costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by Customer, in each case, to the extent arising directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.
  6. Fees, Payment Terms and Remedies.
    • Fees in Confirmation.  In consideration of the provision of the Services by the Company and the rights granted to Customer under this Agreement, Customer shall pay the fees set forth in the Order Confirmation.
    • Invoiced Amounts.  Customer shall pay all invoiced amounts due to the Company on receipt of the Company’s invoice. Customer shall make all payments hereunder in US dollars by credit card, wire transfer, or other payment method approved by the Company in the Order Confirmation.
    • Remedies for Nonpayment.  In the event payments are not received by the Company within 10 days after becoming due, the Company may:  (i) charge interest on any such unpaid amounts at a rate of 1.5% per month or, if lower, the maximum amount permitted under applicable law, from the date such payment was due until the date paid; and (ii) suspend performance for all Services until payment has been made in full.
  7. Taxes. Customer shall be responsible for all sales, use and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state or local governmental entity on any amounts payable by Customer hereunder.

All intellectual property rights, including copyrights, patents, patent disclosures and inventions (whether patentable or not), trademarks service marks, trade secrets, know-how and other confidential information, trade dress, trade names, logos, corporate names and domain names, together with all of the goodwill associated therewith, derivative works and all other rights (collectively, “Intellectual Property Rights”) in and to all documents, work product and other materials that are delivered to Customer under this Agreement or prepared by or on behalf of the Company in the course of performing the Services, including any items identified as such in the Order Confirmation (collectively, the “Deliverables”) except for any Confidential Information of Customer or customer materials shall be owned by the Company. The Company hereby grants Customer a license to use all Intellectual Property Rights free of additional charge and on a non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, fully paid-up, royalty-free and perpetual basis to the extent necessary to enable Customer to make reasonable use of the Deliverables and the Services.
  9. Confidential Information.
    • All non-public, confidential or proprietary information of the Company, including, but not limited to, trade secrets, technology, information pertaining to business operations and strategies, and information pertaining to customers, pricing, and marketing (collectively, “Confidential Information”), disclosed by the Company to Customer, whether disclosed orally or disclosed or accessed in written, electronic or other form or media, and whether or not marked, designated or otherwise identified as “confidential,” in connection with the provision of the Services and this Agreement is confidential, and shall not be disclosed or copied by Customer without the prior written consent of the Company.

  11. Disclaimer of Warranties. EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 10(a), THE COMPANY MAKES NO WARRANTY WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY (A) WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY; OR (B) WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; OR (C) WARRANTY OF TITLE; OR (D) WARRANTY AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY; WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED BY LAW, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OF TRADE OR OTHERWISE.

  14. Waiver. No waiver by the Company of any of the provisions of this Agreement is effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the Company. No failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power or privilege arising from this Agreement operates or may be construed as a waiver thereof.
