Open Edge Terms of Service
These Open Edge Terms of Service (“Open Edge Terms of Service”) are between Edgio, Inc., its Affiliates and subsidiaries, (together, “Edgio”) and the other signatory to the applicable Order Form (“Service Provider”). The parties agree as follows:
1. Purpose, Scope and Services, Order Form.
The Parties are working together to facilitate the expansion of Edgio’s global content delivery network and the rapid deployment of the Edgio Software by utilizing Service Provider’s telecommunications network and related data and communication service offerings in the Territory. As set forth in the Order Form, Edgio will provide or sell Equipment to Service Provider in order to establish a PoP at Service Provider Facility subject to and in accordance with these Open Edge Terms of Service. By executing an Order Form, Edgio agrees to provide Open Edge and Services to Service Provider, and Service Provider agrees to provide Colocation Services, IP Address Services, and Remote Hands Services to Edgio. Service Provider will provide Services in accordance with the Service Level Agreement.
A particular Order Form will become binding on the parties on the later date that such Order Form is signed by Service Provider and Edgio (the “Effective Date”).
2. Provisioning of Equipment.
Edgio will make the Equipment available to Service Provider via the shipping company designated by Service Provider as soon as commercially feasible following the Effective Date (the date that Edgio provides the Equipment to the shipping company is the “Delivery Date”). If Service Provider is not purchasing the Equipment, Edgio shall at all times retain title to such Equipment and Service Provider will have no ownership or collateral interest in the Equipment and Service Provider shall, if requested by Edgio and at Edgio’s cost, return the Equipment in accordance with Edgio’s instructions. If Service Provider is purchasing the Equipment, it shall be free of all liens and encumbrances, or any defect affecting title, but is otherwise sold “as is”. Service Provider will be the importer of record and is responsible for shipping the Equipment to the Service Provider Facility, including payment of any import duties and taxes. For the avoidance of doubt, and only when Service Provider is purchasing Equipment from Edgio, title and risk of loss with regard to the Equipment shall pass from Edgio to Service Provider when Edgio provides the Equipment to the shipping company designated by Service Provider.Service Provider assumes all liability for any claims (including third party claims), liabilities, or obligations related to or arising from the ownership or use of any of the Equipment on and after the Delivery Date. Regardless of who owns the Equipment, Edgio will maintain exclusive responsibility for the installation, operation, control, maintenance and uninstallation of the Edgio Software on the Equipment. Once the Equipment is at the Service Provider Facility, any relocation of the Equipment is subject to Edgio’s prior written approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Service Provider shall not unplug or reconfigure the Equipment without Edgio’s prior written approval.
3. Required Capacity, Service Fee.
Service Provider agrees to provide Colocation Services as well as Connectivity Services to the Service Provider Network that is at least one hundred and twenty percent (120%) of the rated Content Delivery Capacity for the PoP (such number, the “Required Egress Capacity”). Commencing on the first day of the month following Edgio’s confirmation that Service Provider has provided the Required Egress Capacity at the PoP (the “Service Fee Start Date”), Edgio will pay to Service Provider a monthly service fee as set forth in the Order Form (“Service Fee”), if applicable.
4. Fees and Payments.
Service Provider shall pay all invoices in full within forty-five (45) calendar days of the date of invoice. The Equipment sale and purchase, if applicable, contemplated under these Open Edge Terms of Service shall be complete upon Edgio’s receipt of the full Purchase Price from Service Provider. Service Provider’s obligation to pay the Purchase Price or the Implementation Fee shall be absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any defense or any rights of set-off of any kind, and Service Provider shall make all payments free of any deductions, diminution, or set-off. Any late payments will incur interest of 1.5% per month (or maximum rate allowable by law, if less than 1.5% per month) from the invoice date. Nothing in this section will be deemed to limit Edgio’s right to seek judicial intervention at any time regarding any such disputed amount.
Service Provider will invoice Edgio the Service Fee, if any, for the preceding month within 30 days of the end of each calendar month, calculated in accordance with the terms of the Order Form. Edgio will remit payment to Service Provider within forty-five (45) calendar days of receipt of a valid invoice.
Service Provider is responsible for the import of the Equipment and Edgio Software and for the payment of all Taxes, duties, and fees related to such import. Service Provider is solely responsible for any and all fees, costs, expenses, assessments, or similar charges associated with interconnect or other regulatory charges for ingress or egress of Data into or out of the Territory. Edgio’s Fees are exclusive of all Taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities. Service Provider is responsible for payment of all such Taxes, levies, or duties, except for taxes based solely on Edgio’s income. If Edgio has the legal obligation to pay or collect any such amounts for which Service Provider is responsible, the appropriate amount will be invoiced to and paid by Customer, unless Customer provides Edgio with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority (along with an English translation, if applicable) covering such amount.
Each Party is responsible for: (i) personal property Taxes on property it owns, purchases, or leases; (ii) franchise and privilege Taxes on its business; (iii) Taxes based on its net income, except any withholding Tax that may be applicable; (iv) any third party imposed fees; and (v) taxes imposed on it according to applicable law. If Service Provider is required to withhold Taxes on payments to Edgio, Service Provider shall promptly deliver to Edgio an official receipt along with an English translation, if applicable, of any Taxes withheld or other documents necessary to enable Edgio to claim or recover a Tax credit, and Service Provider shall cooperate with Edgio in good faith to assist Edgio in claiming any available credits.
6. Security and Data Security.
Both Parties agree to adhere to all applicable privacy laws. Service Provider will implement reasonable and appropriate industry-standard measures at the Service Provider Facility in order to secure the Equipment, and protect the Content and Edgio Software against accidental or unauthorized loss or access. In no event shall such measures be less than the same level of security Service Provider provides for its own equipment. Service Provider will use reasonable efforts to fix any identified security vulnerability. Service Provider will not access or alter the Content.If the Equipment is provided to Service Provider by Edgio, Service Provider shall pay Edgio for the full replacement cost of the Equipment if stolen, damaged or misplaced while at the Service Provider Facilities. Edgio may, upon reasonable notice to Service Provider, enter Service Provider Facilities and access Edgio-owned Equipment.
The initial term of an Order Form will begin on the first day of the month following Edgio’s confirmation that Service Provider has provided the Required Egress Capacity at the PoP (the “PoP Activation Date”) and will continue for the period set forth in the Order Form (“Initial Term”). An Order Form will automatically renew for successive periods of one (1) year (each, a “Renewal Term”), unless either party notifies the other of its intent not to renew at least 90 days prior to the expiration of the then-current Initial Term or Renewal Term, as applicable. However, no Order Form shall renew once five (5) years from the PoP Activation Date have passed, in which case the Order Form will terminate upon expiration of the then-applicable Initial Term or Renewal Term. If the Initial Term or any Renewal Term would otherwise expire prior to the end of a calendar month, such term will continue, uninterrupted, until the end of that calendar month. The Initial Term and all Renewal Terms are collectively referred to as the “Term.”
8. Termination, Non-Renewal.
A party may terminate these Open Edge Terms of Service and all outstanding and effective Order Forms if the other party breaches any material term of these Open Edge Terms of Service and fails to cure such breach within the 30 days following the date of written notice identifying such breach. If the non-breaching party fails to terminate within a reasonable period following such 30-day period, then it will be deemed to have waived its termination right with respect to such uncured breach. In the event a Party terminates an Order Form in accordance with this Section 9, the non-defaulting Party’s obligations to pay any charges that are due to the breaching party shall immediately cease, except with respect to any charges due and payable for the period prior to such termination. Termination shall not prejudice or otherwise affect the rights or liabilities of the Parties with respect to activities prior to such termination. In the event of termination, Edgio will immediately remove the Edgio Software from the Equipment remotely. Service Provider shall provide reasonable cooperation, if necessary, to enable Edgio to remove the Edgio Software.
9. Modification of Terms of Service, Order Form.
Edgio reserves the right to modify these Open Edge Terms of Service at any time, upon 60 days prior written notice to Service Provider. Such amendment will become effective at the commencement of the next Renewal Term after the expiration of the 60-day notice period. An Order Form may not be amended except by written agreement of the Parties.
