- Orders, Term, Subscription Term.
- Customer may subscribe to any subscription products (each a “Subscription Product”) and professional services (“Services”) that Amadeus may offer, using orders entered into with Amadeus pursuant to this Agreement (each an “Order” or an “Order Form”). Each Order will include: (i) identification of the Subscription Product and associated fees (“Subscription Fees”), (ii) identification of Services and associated fees (“Service Fees”); and (iii) such additional terms and conditions as may be mutually agreed upon by Amadeus and Customer.
- All orders are non-cancellable. All terms and conditions of this Agreement continue in full force and effect until terminated.

- Subject to compliance with this Agreement, Amadeus grants Customer, for the “Subscription Term”, a non-transferable, non-exclusive, and non-sublicensable right to access and use each Subscription Product set forth in the Order during the contracted term (“Subscription Term”). Use of each Subscription Product, which are deemed to include all software, text, graphics, images, audio and visual information, online tutorials, documents, specifications, and materials made available to Customer in relation with the Subscription Product, is licensed, not sold.Unless otherwise set forth in an Order, Amadeus will make the Subscription Products available for use by Customer in accordance with the Service Levels set forth in Exhibit A.

Each Authorized User must have a unique user ID and password combination for using the Subscription Product (“User Account”). Multiple individuals shall not share a User Account. Customer is responsible for all activity occurring through its User Accounts, administering all entitlements associated with each User Account, and retiring each User Account when the Authorized User’s employment or agency is terminated or the individual otherwise no longer requires access to Customer’s data. New User Accounts may be set up for new Authorized Users in replacement of User Accounts that have been de-activated for former Authorized Users who are no longer permitted access to Subscription Product. Amadeus shall have the right to monitor and audit Customer’s user count and use.
- Implementation and Training.
- If Customer orders any implementation, training, or other Services related to the Subscription Products, including services related to configuring interface connectivity to the Property-based systems and testing prior to production use of the Subscription Product; then the provisions of this Section 3 will apply.

- Customer acknowledges that Amadeus schedules resources in advance and that Amadeus would incur significant expenses, including downtime of those resources, if scheduled Services are canceled, delayed, or rescheduled within thirty (30) days of the scheduled Service date i) by Customer for its convenience; or ii) due to Customer delay or being unprepared for performance of the Service(s). As such, in the event of any such cancellation, delay, or rescheduling, Amadeus may: i) assess a cancellation fee of eighty percent (80%) of the total price of the scheduled Service if Amadeus cannot reschedule the resources to a chargeable project for an alternative customer; ii) charge Customer for any non-refundable airline fees, change fees or other nonrefundable travel and related expenses unused due to the delay.

- Confidential Information shall not include any information that (i) is already known to the receiving party prior to disclosure by the disclosing party without breach of any obligation owed to the disclosing party; (ii) is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the receiving party, (iii) is independently developed by the receiving party without use or reference to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information, or (iv) is disclosed to the receiving party by a third party that was not bound by a confidentiality obligation to the disclosing party.
- Each party’s Confidential Information may only be used by the other party in order to fulfill its rights and obligations under this Agreement. Each party agrees to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information and to protect as a trade secret any portion of the other party’s Confidential Information by preventing any unauthorized copying, use, distribution, or transfer of possession of such information. Each party agrees to maintain at least the same procedures regarding Confidential Information that it maintains for its own Confidential Information, but in no event will such procedures be less than commercially reasonable. Confidential Information of a disclosing party may be disclosed by the receiving party solely to the receiving party’s officers, employees, agents, insurers and professional advisers who have a “need to know” and have been informed of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information, provided that such third parties are bound to confidentiality and non-disclosure obligations consistent with this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, neither party will permit any of its personnel to remove any proprietary or other legend or restrictive notice contained or included in any material provided by the discloser and the recipient shall not permit its personnel to reproduce or copy any such material except as expressly authorized hereunder. Each party may disclose the existence and terms of this Agreement and each Order, in confidence, to a potential purchaser of or successor to any portion of such party’s business resulting from the reorganization, spin-off, or sale of all or a portion of all of the assets of any business, division, or group of such party.
- If the receiving party is required by a lawful order from any court, or any body empowered to issue such an order, to disclose the Confidential Information of the disclosing party, the receiving party shall promptly notify the disclosing party of any such order, so that the disclosing party may take reasonable steps to limit further disclosure, including obtaining a protective order or other reasonable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the Confidential Information. If, in the absence of a protective order, the receiving party is compelled as a matter of law to disclose the Confidential Information of the disclosing party, the receiving party will disclose only the part of such Confidential Information as is required by law to be disclosed. Upon termination of this Agreement, each party shall promptly return or destroy all of the other party’s Confidential Information in its possession and provide written certification of such return or destruction.
- If the receiving party discloses or uses (or threatens to disclose or use) any Confidential Information of the disclosing party in breach of this Section, the disclosing party shall have the right, in addition to any other remedies available to it, to seek injunctive relief to enjoin such acts, it being specifically acknowledged by the parties that any other available remedies are inadequate.

- (a) Amadeus and its third party licensors own all right, title and interest in: i) all Subscription Products and all software text, graphics, images, audio and visual information, online tutorials, documents, specifications, and materials made available to Customer hereunder, and all intellectual property embodied therein (collectively “Amadeus IP”); and ii) any recommendations, suggestions, enhancement requests, ideas, or other information related to Amadeus’ products or services, including any Amadeus IP (“Feedback”). Customer hereby grants Amadeus a worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, and fully paid royalty free license to any Feedback provided by Customer and acknowledges Amadeus is free to use any such Feedback for any purpose without payment or restriction.

Amadeus will promptly notify Customer of any suspension and will work with Customer in good faith to resolve the issue(s) which prompted suspension. Customer will not receive a refund or credit for any period of suspension or termination. Amadeus reserves the right to assess a reconnection fee in the event the suspension results from Customer’s failure to pay the applicable fees or Customer’s intentional violation of this Agreement. Suspension or termination is without prejudice to other remedies available to Amadeus for any violation of this Agreement by Customer.

- This Section states Customer’s exclusive remedy and Amadeus’ entire liability for any claim of infringement of any intellectual property rights of any kind.
- Force Majeure. Neither party shall be responsible for any failure to perform its obligations (other than payment obligations) under this Agreement if performance of such obligations is prevented or delayed by “Force Majeure Events” as defined in Exhibit A attached hereto or any cause beyond its reasonable control. In the event Force Majeure Events prevent use of the Subscription Product for more than ten (10) consecutive days, Customer’s sole remedy is to terminate the Subscription Term applicable to the Subscription Product on thirty (30) days prior written notice to Amadeus. In such case, neither party will be liable for penalties or damages arising out of a failure to perform under this Agreement. However, in such event, Amadeus shall provide Customer a pro-rata refund of any prepaid but unused Subscription Fees. This Section shall not operate to change, delete, or modify any of the parties’ obligations under this Agreement (e.g., payment), but rather only to excuse a delay in the performance of such obligations.
- Limitation on Liability The parties agree that, to the fullest extent permissible under law, in no event shall a party be liable to the other for any direct or indirect loss of actual or anticipated profits, income, revenue or any incidental, consequential, indirect, special or punitive damages (including loss of business, contracts or commercial opportunities, loss of or damage to goodwill or reputation, lost savings, loss of use or loss or corruption of data, database or software) howsoever arising out of this Agreement or with respect to the Subscription Product(s), whether in contract, tort, negligence, breach of statutory duty or other form of action even if the loss or damages were foreseeable or the party has been apprised of the possibility of such loss or damages. This Section shall apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy. The parties hereto specifically agree that except for the amounts properly payable to Amadeus hereunder, the total liability of either party to the other for damages under this Agreement will not exceed the Subscription Fees paid or payable by Customer to Amadeus for the then current Subscription Term. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Amadeus will be liable only for actual direct damages incurred by Customer as a direct result of Amadeus’ gross negligence, willful misconduct, or failure to exercise reasonable care in providing the Subscription Products. The limits described in this Section shall not apply with respect to (i) losses resulting from death or personal injury due to a party’s gross negligence, or (ii) a party’s breach of its obligations under Sections 3(b), 4, 6, 10, and 13(e).

g. Customer may not assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily, by contract, by operation of law, by merger, stock, asset sale or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Amadeus, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. Amadeus may assign this Agreement with advance written notice to Customer. Any purported assignment in violation of this Section shall be void.
h. The parties are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to make either party an agent, fiduciary, employee, partner or joint venturer of the other party.

All other disputes regarding this Agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of courts within in the State of New Hampshire.
