6. Services Conditions
The Customer acknowledges that, in the event of a support or trouble call, the Customer is responsible for onsite and/or remote cooperative testing with Permission Click technical support personnel to assist in the diagnosis of the trouble, including the cost of a third-party vendor if Customer does not have internal resources available.
Permission Click may modify the Services or these Service Terms and Conditions to comply with various regulatory requirements (e.g., changes by a regulatory agency, legislative body, or court of competent jurisdiction).
Customer acknowledges that the Services do not provide guarantee or warrant availability of data. Customer agrees that to the extent permitted by law, Permission Click shall not be held liable in the event of security breach, attack, unintended release of sensitive information, or other such event while using the Service.
The Payment Processing Service is optional, and it is at Customer’s discretion whether or not to use this service. The Payment Processing Service requires the use of third party payment provider services (“Payment Provider”), and the acceptance of the terms specified by those third party payment providers (“Payment Provider Terms”). A link to the applicable Payment Provider Terms are set out during the sign-up process to the Payment Processing Service. It is Customer’s sole responsibility to (i) accept the Payment Provider Terms (failing which it will not be able to use the Payment Processing Service); and (ii) keep itself informed of any changes to the Payment Provider Terms. Continued use of Payment Processing Service after the amended Payment Provider Terms are posted constitutes agreement to, and acceptance of, the amended Payment Provider Terms. If Customer does not agree to any changes to the Payment Provider Terms, it must cease use of the Payment Processing Service. Use of the Payment Processing Services is subject to the additional fees (“Payment Processing Fees”) and the payment processing timelines set out at (“Payment Processing Policy”), which may be in addition to the fees and processing time specified by the Payment Provider. Under no circumstances shall Permission Click be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive, extraordinary, exemplary or other damages whatsoever, that result from Customer’s use of Payment Provider services (unless arising from Permission Click’s gross negligence or wilful misconduct). These limitations shall apply even if Permission Click has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The foregoing limitations shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
7. Other terms and conditions
7.1 Limitation of Liability
The Customer agrees and acknowledges that:
- Permission Click will have no liability for any incidental, special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages of any character, including, without limitation, damages for loss of business or goodwill, work stoppage, loss of information or data, loss of revenue or profit, computer failure, or other financial loss, regardless of the legal theory asserted, whether based on breach of these Service Terms and Conditions, breach of warranty, tort (including negligence); and
- the total liability for damages or other forms of monetary relief of Permission Click for matters related to, connected with or arising out of these Service Terms and Conditions regardless of the cause of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or breach of any statute or any other legal or equitable obligation is limited to an amount equal to the Fees paid by the Customer for the Term or the then current Further Term.
7.2 No Warranties

Customer receives access to Services from Permission Click ‘as is’.
- Customer further acknowledges and agrees that Permission Click shall not be liable to Customer for any loss, damage or expense of any kind or nature caused directly or indirectly by Services or by the Customer, or by any repair, service or adjustment thereto, or by any interruption of Services or loss of use thereof, or for any loss of business or damage, whatsoever and howsoever caused, and regardless of whether Permission Click has been advised of such loss, damage or expense.

- any breach of these Service Terms and Conditions by the Customer or its Users; or
- the Customer’s use and its Users’ use of the Services.
In the course of performing the Services, either party will or may have access to certain confidential information concerning the activities of the other party. In particular, the Customer may have access to certain confidential information relating to the Services and internal methodologies of Permission Click. Each party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to protect the confidential information of the other party from unauthorized use or disclosure and shall use at least the same degree of care with regard thereto as it uses to protect its own confidential information of a like nature, and in any event, no less of a standard than that used by a prudent business person to protect its own confidential information. Neither party shall, during the Term or any time thereafter, either disclose any of such confidential information to any other party or use such confidential information for any purpose not contemplated by the provision of Services.
During the Term, Customer will not directly or indirectly, through any employee, agent, or otherwise, and will not permit any of its agents to solicit, initiate or encourage, any offers or proposals to the purchase or use of Services similar in nature to the Services offered by Permission Click. The Customer shall purchase the Services exclusively from Permission Click and not from any other vendor for the duration of the Term.
If any provision of these Service Terms and Conditions is held illegal or unenforceable in a judicial proceeding, such provision shall be severed and shall be inoperative, and, provided that the fundamental provisions of these Service Terms and Conditions remain legal and enforceable, the remainder of these terms and condition shall remain operative and binding on Permission Click and Customer.
