TERMS OF SERVICE
Last Updated: November 30, 2023
These Terms of Service (these “Terms”) are a legal agreement between DNSFilter, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“DNSF”), and the customer purchasing a DNSF Product (“Customer”) through an Order. These Terms and any Order are referred to collectively as the “Agreement”. DNSF and Customer may be referred to individually as “Party” or collectively as the “Parties”.
If you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of a third-party entity, you represent and warrant that you have sufficient right to bind such third-party to these Terms, in which case, all references to “Customer” in these Terms shall be references to such third-party.
If Customer has entered into a separate agreement with DNSF for the Products identified in the Order (“Services Agreement”), such Services Agreement shall govern the Order in place of these Terms. Nothing in these Terms modifies Customer’s rights or obligations under a Services Agreement.
In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the terms of an Order, the Terms will control unless the conflicting term of the Order expressly states otherwise.
For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
1.1. Provision of Service. DNSF shall make the Service available to Customer for the subscription term selected during the Sale Transaction (the “Subscription Term”), and grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable right to access and use the Service, solely for Customer’s use, in accordance with this Agreement (including any usage restrictions as may be set forth in an Order).
1.2. Software License Grant. If included in an Order, DNSF grants Customer, during the applicable Subscription Term, a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable, non-transferable license to install the Software, in machine-readable form only, and to use the Software solely in connection with the Service, all in accordance with this Agreement, and any additional usage restrictions as may be set forth in an Order. Any Software licensed by Customer in connection with the Service will be delivered to Customer by electronic download and Customer shall be solely responsible for its installation. All Software is deemed accepted upon download.
1.3. Free Trials.
(a) Free Trials. DNSF may offer Customer the ability to participate in a free trial of the Products (“Free Trial”) for a limited period of time (“Trial Period”). Customer will not be charged by DNSF until the Trial Period has expired. Trial Periods may be extended by DNSF in its sole discretion at the request of Customer. After the last day of the Trial Period, unless Customer has completed an Online Purchase or an Offline Purchase, the Free Trial will be automatically canceled. At any time and without notice, DNSF reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial or cancel such Free Trial.
(b) Disclaimer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Free Trial Product(s) are provided “AS IS.” DNSF MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AND SHALL HAVE NO INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCTS UNDER A FREE TRIAL (“FREE TRIAL PRODUCT”). DNSF SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR CUSTOMER’S USE OF FREE TRIAL PRODUCTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY (NOTWITHSTANDING ANY LIMITATION OF LIABILITY CONTAINED ELSEWHERE HEREIN), UNLESS SUCH EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY IS NOT ENFORCEABLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW IN WHICH CASE DNSF’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO A FREE TRIAL PRODUCT IS $100.00. ANY DATA COLLECTED OR STORED IN CONNECTION WITH A FREE TRIAL PRODUCT MAY BE PERMANENTLY LOST UPON TERMINATION OF THE FREE TRIAL PRODUCT.
1.4. Support Services. Unless otherwise identified on an Order, Customer shall be entitled to receive DNSF’s standard support for the Services. Additional support may be purchased in an Order.
2. Use Guidelines; Proprietary Rights.
2.1. Restrictions. Customer may use the Products solely in accordance with this Agreement, including any related Order. Customer shall not, except as expressly permitted by this Agreement: (a) license, sublicense, sell, resell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute, time share, operate as a service bureau or managed service, or otherwise commercially exploit or make the Products available to any third-party except as expressly contemplated by this Agreement; (b) modify, adapt, alter, translate or create derivative works of the Products; (c) reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Products (or otherwise attempt to derive the source code or underlying ideas or algorithms of the Products); (d) take any action that would cause the Products to be placed in the public domain; (e) remove, alter, or obscure any proprietary notices of DNSF, its licensors or supplier included in the Products; (f) send or store Malicious Code or infringing, obscene, threatening, libelous, or otherwise unlawful or tortious material or spam; (g) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein, including conducting any load or penetration testing on the Service; (h) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks; (i) circumvent, disable, or interfere with security-related features of the Products or features that enforce limitations on use of the Products; or (j) access the Products for the purpose of building a competitive product or service or copying its features or user interface.
2.2. Suspension of Service for Critical Cause. DNSF reserves the right to suspend the Service provided to Customer if: (a) Customer is delinquent on any undisputed (in good faith) late payment obligations to DNSF or a Reseller for more than thirty (30) days following written notice of such late payment; (b) DNSF reasonably believes that suspension of the Service is necessary to comply with the law or requests of governmental entities; or (c) DNSF reasonably determines that Customer’s use of the Service is in violation of this Agreement. DNSF will give advance notice of the suspension, to the extent it is able without causing undue harm or risk. DNSF will restore access to the Service in a prompt manner after the underlying cause is mitigated.
2.3. Suggestions. DNSF shall have a royalty-free, worldwide, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable, perpetual license to use or incorporate into its products and services any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations or other feedback provided by or on behalf of Customer or its Users relating to the operation of the Products.
3. Fees & Payment.
3.1. Fees. Customer shall pay all fees set forth in an Order (the “Fees”). If Customer is purchasing through a Reseller, the applicable Fees will be set forth in Customer’s ordering documentation with the Reseller and such Fees will be remitted to Reseller. Except as otherwise set forth in an Order, all Fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and Fees paid are non-refundable. Unless otherwise agreed to in an Order, in the event that Customer’s actual usage exceeds limitations set forth in an Order, overage charges shall apply as set forth on the applicable Order or, if not set forth in the Order, based on DNSF’s then-current rates. Customer shall remit such charges to DNSF. Customer agrees that its purchase of the Products is neither contingent upon the delivery of any future functionality or features nor dependent upon any oral or written public comments made by DNSF with respect to future functionality or features.
3.2. Invoicing and Payment Terms.
(a) Online Purchases. Online Purchases will not require an invoice and Customer will be billed automatically in accordance with the Subscription Term selected by Customer at the time of the purchase. Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, DNSF will issue an electronic invoice with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice, and such charges are due thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice. A valid payment method is required to process the payment for Online Purchases.
(b) Offline Purchase. For purchases conducted through the execution of a written order, proposal, statement of work, or similar document, all Fees will be invoiced in advance and in accordance with the terms of the Order. Unless otherwise stated in an Order, charges are due thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice. Customer is responsible for maintaining complete and accurate billing and contact information.
3.4. Overdue Payments. For those payments that are invoiced, any payment not received from Customer by the due date may accrue (except with respect to charges then under reasonable and good faith dispute for which Customer has notified DNSF), at DNSF’s discretion, late charges at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.
3.5. Taxes. Customer is responsible for paying or self-assessing all applicable direct or indirect local, state, federal or foreign taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes (collectively, “Taxes”) associated with its purchases hereunder, above and beyond the Fees, excluding taxes based on DNSF’s net income or property, unless Customer provides DNSF with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. To the extent that any amounts payable are subject to withholding taxes, the amount payable shall be grossed up such that the amount paid to DNSF net of withholding taxes equals the amount invoiced by DNSF. Unless otherwise stated, all prices set forth in an Order are exclusive of Taxes.
4.1. Confidentiality. The Receiving Party shall not disclose or use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, except with the Disclosing Party’s prior written permission. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its Affiliates and service providers on a need-to-know basis, and such Affiliates and service providers may use such Confidential Information, in each case only for the purposes of fulfilling the Receiving Party’s obligations under this Agreement. The Receiving Party shall be liable to the Disclosing Party for all actions and omissions of its Affiliates and service providers with respect to such information as if such actions and omissions were those of the Receiving Party hereunder. Confidential Information shall not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (ii) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (iii) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; or (iv) is received from a third-party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party.
4.2. Protection. The Receiving Party agrees to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential information of like kind (but in no event using less than reasonable care), and promptly notify the Disclosing Party upon discovery of any unauthorized access or acquisition of Confidential Information and reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party’s efforts to prevent, investigate and remediate the breach of confidentiality.
4.3. Compelled Disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, it shall provide the Disclosing Party with prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. In the event that the Receiving Party is nevertheless compelled to make such a disclosure, it shall disclose the minimum necessary Confidential Information to comply with such request.
4.4. Remedies. If the Receiving Party discloses or uses (or threatens to disclose or use) any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in breach of confidentiality protections hereunder, 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.
4.5. Retention of Confidential Information. Upon a Party’s written request, the other Party will erase, delete or destroy all copies of Confidential Information of the other Party whether or not modified or merged into other materials, and certify in writing to the other Party that such Party has fully complied with these requirements. A Party may retain copies of Confidential Information that are required to be retained by law or pursuant to such Party’s reasonable document retention policies, or copies that are incapable of being destroyed because it would be unduly burdensome or cost prohibitive, provided that all such copies remain subject to the restrictions herein for so long as they are retained.
5. Third Party Software.

Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, DNSF reserves all rights, title and interest in and to the Products (and any enhancements, modifications, or derivative works thereof, or other software development and works performed by DNSF), including all related intellectual property rights. No rights in the Products are granted to Customer hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein.
5.2. Open Source Software. Certain items of software included with the Products may be subject to “open source” or “free software” licenses (“Open Source Software”). Nothing in this Agreement limits Customers rights under, or grants Customer rights that supersede, the terms and conditions of any applicable end user license for the Open Source Software.

Customer shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, and appropriateness of any content or data submitted or made available by it and its Users to the Service.

Subject to Section 8.3, DNSF will defend at its own expense any action against Customer brought by a third-party alleging that the Products, in each case, as delivered, infringe any patents, copyrights or misappropriate any trade secrets, in each case, of a third-party, and DNSF will indemnify and hold Customer harmless against those costs and damages finally awarded against Customer in any such action or those costs and damages agreed to in a monetary settlement of such action.
