Happy Grader Software as a Service Agreement

This Software as a Service Agreement (this “Agreement”) is effective when you, the Customer, indicate that you agree to it during the sign-up process (the “Effective Date”), and is by and between Happy Grader, Inc., a Delaware corporation and you, the Customer, (“Customer”). Happy Grader and Customer may be referred to herein collectively as the “Parties” or individually as a “Party.”

WHEREAS, Happy Grader provides access to its online exam and assignment grading services (the “Services”) to its customers; and

WHEREAS, Customer desires to access the Services, and Happy Grader desires to provide Customer access to the Services, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants, terms, and conditions set forth herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

1. Definitions.

1.1  “Aggregated Statistics” means data and information related to Customer’s use of the Services that is used by Happy Grader in an aggregate and anonymized manner, including to compile statistical and performance information related to the provision and operation of the Services.

1.2  “Authorized User” means Customer’s employees, consultants, contractors, and agents (i) who are authorized by Customer to access and use the Services under the rights granted to Customer pursuant to this Agreement and (ii) for whom access to the Services has been purchased hereunder.

1.3  “Customer Data” means, other than Aggregated Statistics, information, data, and other content, in any form or medium, that is submitted, posted, or otherwise transmitted by or on behalf of Customer or an Authorized User through the Services.

1.4  “Documentation” means Happy Grader’s user manuals, handbooks, and guides relating to the Services provided by Happy Grader to Customer either electronically or in hard copy form.

1.5  “Happy Grader IP” means the Services, the Documentation, and any and all intellectual property provided to Customer or any Authorized User in connection with the foregoing. For the avoidance of doubt, Happy Grader IP includes Aggregated Statistics and any information, data, or other content derived from Happy Grader’s monitoring of Customer’s access to or use of the Services, but does not include Customer Data.

2. Access and Use. 

2.1  Provision of Access. Subject to and conditioned on Customer’s payment of Fees and compliance with all other terms and conditions of this Agreement, Happy Grader hereby grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except in compliance with Section 11.7) right to access and use the Services during the Term, solely for use by Authorized Users in accordance with the terms and conditions herein. Such use is limited to Customer’s internal use. The total number of Authorized Users will not exceed the number applicable to Customer’s pricing plan, except as expressly agreed to in writing by the Parties and subject to any appropriate adjustment of the Fees payable hereunder.

2.2  Documentation License. Subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, Happy Grader hereby grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable (except in compliance with Section 11.7) license to use the Documentation during the Term solely for Customer’s internal business purposes in connection with its use of the Services.

2.3  Use Restrictions. Customer shall not use the Services for any purposes beyond the scope of the access granted in this Agreement. Customer shall not at any time, directly or indirectly, and shall not permit any Authorized Users to: (i) copy, modify, or create derivative works of the Services or Documentation, in whole or in part; (ii) rent, lease, lend, sell, license, sublicense, assign, distribute, publish, transfer, or otherwise make available the Services or Documentation; (iii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, decode, adapt, or otherwise attempt to derive or gain access to any software component of the Services, in whole or in part; (iv) remove any proprietary notices from the Services or Documentation; or (v) use the Services or Documentation in any manner or for any purpose that infringes, misappropriates, or otherwise violates any intellectual property right or other right of any person, or that violates any applicable law.

2.4  Reservation of Rights. Happy Grader reserves all rights not expressly granted to Customer in this Agreement. Except for the limited rights and licenses expressly granted under this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement grants, by implication, waiver, estoppel, or otherwise, to Customer or any third party any intellectual property rights or other right, title, or interest in or to the Happy Grader IP.

2. 5  Suspension. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Happy Grader may temporarily suspend Customer’s and any Authorized User’s access to any portion or all of the Services if: (i) Happy Grader reasonably determines that (a) there is a threat or attack on any of the Happy Grader IP; (b) Customer’s or any Authorized User’s use of the Happy Grader IP disrupts or poses a security risk to the Happy Grader IP or to any other customer or vendor of Happy Grader; (c) Customer, or any Authorized User, is using the Happy Grader IP for fraudulent or illegal activities; (d) subject to applicable law, Customer has ceased to continue its business in the ordinary course, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition of its assets, or become the subject of any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, or similar proceeding; or (e) Happy Grader’s provision of the Services to Customer or any Authorized User is prohibited by applicable law; (ii) any vendor of Happy Grader has suspended or terminated Happy Grader’s access to or use of any third-party services or products required to enable Customer to access the Services; or (iii) in accordance with Section 4.1 (any such suspension described in subclause (i), (ii), or (iii), a “Service Suspension”). Happy Grader shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide written notice of any Service Suspension to Customer and to provide updates regarding resumption of access to the Services following any Service Suspension. Happy Grader shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resume providing access to the Services as soon as reasonably possible after the event giving rise to the Service Suspension is cured. Happy Grader will have no liability for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits), or any other consequences that Customer or any Authorized User may incur as a result of a Service Suspension.

2.6  Aggregated Statistics. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Happy Grader may monitor Customer’s use of the Services and collect and compile Aggregated Statistics. As between Happy Grader and Customer, all right, title, and interest in Aggregated Statistics, and all intellectual property rights therein, belong to and are retained solely by Happy Grader. Customer acknowledges that Happy Grader may compile Aggregated Statistics based on Customer Data input into the Services. Customer agrees that Happy Grader may (i) make Aggregated Statistics publicly available in compliance with applicable law, and (ii) use Aggregated Statistics to the extent and in the manner permitted under applicable law.

3.  Customer Responsibilities. Customer is responsible and liable for all uses of the Services and Documentation resulting from access provided by Customer, directly or indirectly, whether such access or use is permitted by or in violation of this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer is responsible for all acts and omissions of Authorized Users, and any act or omission by an Authorized User that would constitute a breach of this Agreement if taken by Customer will be deemed a breach of this Agreement by Customer. Customer shall use reasonable efforts to make all Authorized Users aware of this Agreement’s provisions as applicable to such Authorized User’s use of the Services, and shall cause Authorized Users to comply with such provisions.

4.  Fees and Payment. 

4.1  Fees. Customer shall pay Happy Grader the fees (“Fees”) are due in advance, prior to the term set forth in the pricing plan that Customer signed up for, without offset or deduction. Customer shall make all payments hereunder in US dollars on or before the Effective Date, and then on or before any subsequent due date. If Customer fails to make any payment when due, without limiting Happy Grader’s other rights and remedies: (i) Happy Grader may charge interest on the past due amount at the rate of 1.5% per month calculated daily and compounded monthly or, if lower, the highest rate permitted under applicable law; (ii) Customer shall reimburse Happy Grader for all costs incurred by Happy Grader in collecting any late payments or interest, including attorneys’ fees, court costs, and collection agency fees; and (iii) if such failure continues for 7 days or more, Happy Grader may suspend Customer’s and its Authorized Users’ access to any portion or all of the Services until such amounts are paid in full.

4.2  Taxes. All Fees and other amounts payable by Customer under this Agreement are exclusive of taxes and similar assessments. Customer is 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 or regulatory authority on any amounts payable by Customer hereunder, other than any taxes imposed on Happy Grader’s income.

5.  Confidential Information. From time to time during the Term, Happy Grader may disclose or make available information about its business affairs, products, confidential intellectual property, trade secrets, third-party confidential information, and other sensitive or proprietary information, whether orally or in written, electronic, or other form or media, and whether or not marked, designated, or otherwise identified as “confidential” (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Confidential Information does not include information that, at the time of disclosure is: (i) in the public domain; (ii) known to Customer at the time of disclosure; (iii) rightfully obtained by Customer on a non-confidential basis from a third party; or (iv) independently developed by Customer. Customer shall not disclose Happy Grader’s Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to Customer’s employees who have a need to know the Confidential Information for Customer to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required (i) in order to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with applicable law, provided that Customer shall first have given written notice to Happy Grader and made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order; or (ii) to establish Customer’s rights under this Agreement, including to make required court filings. On the expiration or termination of the Agreement, Customer shall promptly return to Happy Grader all copies, whether in written, electronic, or other form or media, of Happy Grader’s Confidential Information, or destroy all such copies and certify in writing to Happy Grader that such Confidential Information has been destroyed. Customer’s obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective as of the Effective Date and will expire five years from the date first disclosed to the receiving Party; provided, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law. Customer Data is not Confidential Information.

11.3  Force Majeure. In no event shall Happy Grader be liable to Customer, or be deemed to have breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement, if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond Happy Grader’s reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, or passage of law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo.

11.5  Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect their original intent as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.

11.9  Equitable Relief. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 5 or, in the case of Customer, Section 2.3, would cause the other Party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agrees that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
