This Agreement begins on the Effective Date and continues for the duration of the term licensed unless terminated earlier as set forth herein.
This Agreement will renew automatically for successive terms of a length equal to the then-current term unless either party gives the other party written notice of non-renewal at least 30 days prior to the end of the then-current term, or unless this Agreement terminates earlier as set forth herein. If the parties are engaged in a renewal involving modifications to this Agreement, and such renewal is not fully executed by the last day of the then-current term, then (a) Fees for Customer’s use of the Software after the expiration of the term of this Agreement will be calculated by reference to the Monthly Unit Cost per rates set forth on https://sensu.io/pricing, and (b) the renewal date of the new term will be adjusted accordingly.
Company may terminate the license upon written notice for Customer’s failure to comply with the Agreement (including these Terms and Conditions).
Upon termination, Customer must immediately return or destroy the Software, together with all copies, adaptations and merged portions in any form. At Company’s request, Customer will certify under oath the extent to which Customer has complied with this section.

Company will indemnify Customer for any costs, expenses, or damages of Customer pursuant to any claim, demand, or cause of action (“Demand”) by a third party to the extent the Demand alleges that the Software infringes such third party’s U.S. intellectual property rights. Company’s obligations under this paragraph will not apply to any demand to the extent it arises from (a) Open-Source Components; (b) Customer’s misuse of the Software or use of the Software outside the scope of the Agreement; or © modification of the Software other than by Company. If the Software is determined to infringe or, in Company’s view, is likely to be found to infringe third-party rights, Company will, at its sole option and its expense, either procure for Customer the right to continue using the Software or replace or modify the Software so that it becomes non-infringing. If, in Company’s sole opinion, neither option is desirable, Company may terminate the license under the Agreement and refund to Customer a pro rata portion of the applicable Fees. THE REMEDIES STATED IN THIS SECTION ARE CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES IN THE EVENT OF INFRINGEMENT.
