This Master Service Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered between Lokalise, Inc., a Delaware company with its registered address at: 3500 South DuPont Highway, Suite BZ-101, Dover, DE 19901, USA (“Lokalise”) and the customer identified in the applicable Customer Order (“Customer”) and is effective as of the date of the Customer Order (“Effective Date”). By accepting the Customer Order in any manner, the Customer accepts this Agreement and other related Contracts. This Agreement governs access to, and use of, the Lokalise Platform and/or the Services by the Customer and its Authorized Users. Certain capitalized terms are defined in Annex A “Definitions” and others are defined contextually in this Agreement.
1. Access to the platform
1.1. Subscription. During the Term and provided that this Agreement has not been terminated by either Party and in consideration of the payment of the Fees, the Customer and the Authorised Users may access the Platform and use the Services pursuant and subject to the terms of the outstanding Subscription. The Subscription will be purchased based on the terms and conditions as set forth in the Customer Order.
1.2. Availability of the Services. The Services will be available at the Platform during 99.50% of the committed uptime within a measurable period. Lokalise will continuously monitor capacity and performance levels for its service environments to procure that the Platform is available to the Customer during the committed uptime. Monitoring reports will be available at the Website: https://status.lokalise.com/.
1.3. Workspace Administration. The Customer will assign and expressly authorize an Authorized User or Authorized Users as its agent to manage the Team’s Workspace (the “Team Owner”). The Team Owner may configure administration settings, assign access and use authorization, request different or additional Services, may provide access to a Team’s Workspace, enable or disable third party integrations, manage permissions, retention and export settings, transfer and re-assign roles on the Team’s Workspace.
1.4. Platform Revisions. Lokalise may from time to time, in its sole discretion, develop and release certain revisions, upgrades, and updates for new features, bug fixes, and enhancements on the Platform (the “Updates”) available to the Customer for free or at an extra cost. All free Updates will be uploaded/installed automatically without a specific notice sent to the Customer. When Lokalise introduces paid Updates with greater functionality and/or performance and a higher price than agreed in the Customer Order, the Customer will be able to access the paid Updates by paying extra Fees. If any released Updates materially reduce features or functionality provided pursuant to the Customer Order, the Customer may terminate the applicable Customer Order and/or this Agreement, without cause, by sending to Lokalise a written termination notice at least twenty (20) calendar days in advance.

Lokalise does not endorse any Integrated Products and is not responsible or liable for the behaviour, features, or content of any Integrated Products. Lokalise does not provide Customer with any rights or remedies regarding such Third-Party Products. Lokalise further makes no express or implied warranties regarding the information, material, products, or services that are contained on or accessible through any Integrated Products. Any access or use of an Integrated Product is solely at the Customer’s own risk, directly governed between the Customer and the applicable third-party provider.
2. Payment terms

2.2. Payment of Fees. The Customer will be invoiced the Fees on an annual basis before the commencement of each billing cycle as specified in the Customer Order.

10. Limitations of liability
10.1. Exclusion of Consequential Damages. In no event will a party be liable to the other party for any consequential, indirect, special, incidental, punitive damages as well as any direct damages in the form of lost profits arising out of or related to this Agreement, even if the party knew or should have known that such damages were possible and even if direct damages are not a satisfactory remedy.
10.2. Dollar Cap. Each party’s maximum aggregate liability to the other party for damages of any kind that the other party suffers in connection with this Agreement is limited to the amount of the Fees paid by the Customer to Lokalise in the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the date of the last event giving rise to the liability. These limitations are independent of all other provisions of this Agreement and shall apply whether an action is in contract or tort and regardless of the theory of liability, notwithstanding the failure of any remedy provided herein.

If applicable law limits the application of the provisions of this Section 10, the indemnifying party’s liability will be limited to the maximum extent permissible. For the avoidance of doubt, a party’s liability limits and other rights set forth in this Section 10 apply likewise to that party’s associates (either Lokalise’s Associates or Customer’s Associates).
11. Display of logos. No publicity
11.1. Logo Use. Neither party shall issue or release any announcement, statement, press release, or other publicity or marketing materials relating to this Agreement or otherwise use the other party's trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, corporate identifiers, or other indicia of source, affiliation or sponsorship, in each case, without the prior written consent of the other party, except for Lokalise’s right to using Customer’s logo and corporate identifiers solely to identify Customer as a Lokalise’s customer in its Website and marketing materials. The Customer hereby grants Lokalise a limited non-transferable right (which is freely revocable at any time by giving email notice to the Customer’s account manager at Lokalise) for the mentioned purposes, provided Lokalise follows the Customer’s brand-book requirements and includes relevant trademark attribution in any materials.

12.1. Term. The term of this Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date indicated in the applicable Customer Order and continue for during all the Subscription term indicated in the outstanding Customer Order (the “Term”).

Any notice received by the recipient by personal delivery or email transmission after 4:00 p.m. on a business day, or any other day, shall be deemed to have been given on the next business day. Notices delivered in electronic format will not be effective unless the sender receives acknowledgment of receipt from the recipient, which acknowledgment will not include any machine-generated automatic reply. Either party may change its notice address by delivery of the proper notice to the other Party.
13.7. Force Majeure. Except for payment obligations, neither party will be liable by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of any obligations on account of events beyond the reasonable control of a party, which may include denial-of-service attacks, cyber-attacks, malware attacks, a failure by a third-party hosting provider or utility provider, shortages, riots, fires, pandemics acts of God, war, strikes, terrorism, and governmental action (the “Force Majeure”).

Except to the extent forbidden in this Section 13.8, this Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties’ respective successors and assigns. Any purported assignment, delegation or transfer in violation of this Section 13.8 is void.
13.9. Severability. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the parties hereby waive any provision of law that would render any clause or section of this Agreement invalid or otherwise unenforceable in any respect. In the event that a provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, such provision will be interpreted to fulfill its intended purpose to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.

13.11. No Waiver. Neither party will be deemed to have waived any of its rights under this Agreement by any statement or representation other than by an authorized representative in an explicit written waiver. No waiver of a breach of this Agreement will constitute a waiver of any other breach of this Agreement.
