- About Us
THIS TERMS & CONDITIONS AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) between NovaBACKUP Corporation, a California corporation (under this Agreement, “NovaBACKUP”), and Purchaser (the “Purchaser”) will be effective immediately upon purchase of a Software Package by Purchaser.
These terms and conditions of sale are the terms and conditions, which are the basis for all sales. NovaBACKUP will not accept any other terms and conditions of sale unless Purchaser and NovaBACKUP have executed a separate written Purchase Agreement. A fully executed Purchase Agreement between the Purchaser and NovaBACKUP will supersede and replace these terms and conditions. Acceptance of all purchase orders is expressly made conditional upon Purchaser’s agreement, expressed or implied, to the terms and conditions set forth herein without modification or addition.
Purchaser’s acceptance of these terms and conditions shall be indicated by any of the following, whichever first occurs: (a) Purchaser’s making of an offer to purchase Product from NovaBACKUP; (b) Purchaser’s written acknowledgment hereof; (c) Purchaser’s acceptance of any electronic or physical shipment of any part of the items specified for delivery (the “Products”); or (d) any other act or expression of acceptance by Purchaser. NovaBACKUP’s acceptance is expressly limited to the terms and conditions hereof in their entirety without addition, modification, or exception, and any term, condition, or proposals hereafter submitted by Purchaser (whether oral or in writing) which is inconsistent with or in addition to the terms and conditions set forth herein will not be accepted by NovaBACKUP. NovaBACKUP’s silence or failure to respond to any such subsequent or different term, condition, or proposal shall not be deemed to be NovaBACKUP’s acceptance or approval thereof.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all risk of loss or damage with respect to the Product(s) shall pass to Purchaser upon shipment for all transactions. Purchaser shall promptly notify NovaBACKUP, in no event later than five (5) business days after delivery, of any claimed shortages or rejection as to any delivery. Such notice shall be in writing and state the grounds for any such rejection. Failure to give any such notice within such time shall be deemed an acceptance in full of any such delivery. NovaBACKUP shall not be liable for any shipment delays beyond the reasonable control of NovaBACKUP which affect NovaBACKUP or any of NovaBACKUP’s suppliers, including but not limited to natural disasters, fire, accident, labor dispute, war, insurrection, riot, act of government, act of god, failure of manufacturers or suppliers to provide equipment.
Purchaser shall bear all applicable federal, state, municipal, and other government taxes (such as sales, use, vat, and similar taxes), as well as import or customs duties, license fees, and similar charges, however, designated or levied on the sale of the Products (or the delivery thereof) or measured by the purchase price paid for the Products. NovaBACKUP, at its discretion, may require reasonable advance assurances of payment through irrevocable bank letters of credit or otherwise. Unless otherwise specified, payment will be due upon presentation of the invoice. All unpaid invoices may bear interest at the maximum rate allowed to be contracted for by law, commencing upon the date payment is due. Purchaser’s failure to make timely payment may result in such action as commencement of proceedings for collection, revocation of credit, stoppage of shipment, delay or cessation of future deliveries, repossession of unpaid delivered goods, and termination of (or suspension of performance by NovaBACKUP under) any one or more sales agreements, discontinuation of support and termination of any lead generation. Notwithstanding any “net” payment provisions specified on the invoice, NovaBACKUP shall have no continuing obligation to deliver Products on credit, and any credit approval may be withdrawn by NovaBACKUP at any time and without prior notice. Pricing is subject to change without notice.
As customers have the possibility to download and extensively test the software prior to purchase, NovaBACKUP does not accept returns or refunds.
Return of Products purchased or reimbursement of services that are claimed to be defective shall be governed by NovaBACKUP Product Return policies in effect on the date of the invoice or as otherwise provided by NovaBACKUP to Purchaser in writing. NovaBACKUP reserves the right to modify or eliminate such policies at any time. Although NovaBACKUP’s policies may permit Purchaser to return Products or services claimed to be defective under certain circumstances, NovaBACKUP makes no representations or warranties of any kind with respect to the Products or services. NovaBACKUP HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. NovaBACKUP WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS, COST, OR EXPENSE FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY. The right to return defective Products, as previously described, shall constitute NovaBACKUP’s sole liability and Purchaser’s exclusive remedy in connection with any claim of any kind relating to quality, condition, or performance of any Product or service, whether such claim is based upon principles of contract, warranty, negligence or other tort, breach of any statutory duty, principles of indemnity or contribution, the failure of any limited or exclusive remedy to achieve its essential purpose, or otherwise.
Products, licenses, marketing services, or any other features or services, separate or bundled, are provided to the Purchaser without written, verbal, or perceived guarantee of any level of success. Risks associated with any marketing initiative are common, and the Purchaser fully understands and accepts that any value or demand demonstrated on the part of the end user of these services is difficult to measure and, therefore, can not accurately be predicted by NovaBACKUP at any time prior to, during or post sale.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. NovaBACKUP licenses the Software to you on an \”AS IS\” basis. NovaBACKUP makes no representation as to the adequacy of the Software for any particular purpose or to produce any particular result. NovaBACKUP shall not be liable for loss or damage arising out of this Agreement or from the distribution or use of the Software or any other materials. NOVABACKUP AND ITS SUPPLIERS DO NOT, AND CANNOT WARRANT THE PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS YOU MAY OBTAIN BY USING THE SOFTWARE, EXCEPT FOR ANY WARRANTY, CONDITION, REPRESENTATION, OR TERM TO THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE SAME CANNOT OR MAY NOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY LAW APPLICABLE TO YOU IN YOUR JURISDICTION, NOVABACKUP AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS OR TERMS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER BY STATUTE, COMMON LAW, CUSTOM, USAGE OR OTHERWISE AS TO ANY OTHER MATTERS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, INTEGRATION, SATISFACTORY QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. The provisions of Section 6 shall survive the termination of this Agreement, howsoever caused, but this shall not imply or create any continued right to use the Software after the termination of this Agreement.
If any Product being sold includes or contains software proprietary to NovaBACKUP, then the following provisions will apply. The NovaBACKUP proprietary software is not being sold by NovaBACKUP to the Purchaser. NovaBACKUP hereby grants to Purchaser a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to use such software solely in connection with the use of the related Equipment or services in which the software is included or with which the software is provided. Purchaser is not licensed to use such software in connection with any other application for any purpose for which it was not intended. Such software contains intellectual property and proprietary information of NovaBACKUP. No ownership interest in any intellectual property rights shall pass from NovaBACKUP to Purchaser. NovaBACKUP shall have and retain all intellectual property rights in any developments or improvements to such software. Purchaser shall not use such software or permit others to use it for the purpose of reverse engineering NovaBACKUP’s technology. The purchaser also agrees not to sell or otherwise provide the software, either directly or as part of the related equipment, to any person who does not agree to comply with the foregoing.
Licenses or Seed Licenses provided together as part of a bundled solution as part of an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) solution or discounted product that has been bundled for a single opportunity may only be distributed by Purchaser as part of a bundled product offering. All components are provided as part of a bundle and may not be separated from the bundle and distributed as standalone applications. Failure to comply will be considered a breach of this Agreement and will result in the immediate termination of this Agreement and the Purchaser’s rights to participate in the Strategic Growth Package program. No refunds, full or in part, will be owed to Purchaser for such breach. Furthermore, the Reseller will be responsible for any loss or damages suffered by NovaBACKUP as a result of this breach.
IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY, OR ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, OR EMPLOYEES, HAVE ANY LIABILITY, OBLIGATION, OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, DATA, OR USE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGE TO PROPERTY, INJURY TO PERSONS, LOST PROFITS, OR DELAYS OR INCONVENIENCE, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOVABACKUP’S LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES HEREUNDER SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE FEES PAID BY PURCHASER TO NovaBACKUP FOR THE PARTICULAR PRODUCT WITH RESPECT TO WHICH SUCH CLAIM ARISES AND PURCHASER’S LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES HEREUNDER SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF FEES PAID OR TO BE PAID BY PURCHASER TO NOVABACKUP FOR THE PARTICULAR PRODUCT WITH RESPECT TO WHICH SUCH CLAIM ARISES.
NovaBACKUP installation services may be provided in connection with the purchase by the Purchaser of products to the extent set forth on the NovaBACKUP quote referenced in Purchaser’s purchase order. Any other technical support, professional or consulting services by NovaBACKUP may require an additional services agreement. Any such additional services agreement, unless expressly providing otherwise, shall be construed in conjunction with these Terms and Conditions.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless NovaBACKUP, its vendors, and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of your use of the NovaBACKUP Products. NovaBACKUP reserves the right, at its own expense and in its sole discretion, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. In that event, and only in such event, shall you have no further obligation to provide indemnification for NovaBACKUP in that matter.
All trademarks appearing on the NovaBACKUP Products are the property of their respective owners, including, without limitation, NovaBACKUP. Purchaser has the right to use such trademarks, but only with NovaBACKUP’s approval and written consent.
These terms and conditions shall constitute the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to all sales by NovaBACKUP to Purchaser and shall supersede all prior offers, negotiations, understandings and agreements. No additional or different terms and conditions, whether material or immaterial, shall become a part of any sales agreement unless expressly accepted in writing by an authorized officer of NovaBACKUP. No additional or different terms and conditions included in any purchase order of Purchaser otherwise accepted by NovaBACKUP shall be effective. Any waiver by NovaBACKUP of one or more of these terms and conditions or any defaults hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of the remaining terms and conditions or of any future defaults hereunder. No failure or delay by either party in exercising or enforcing any right hereunder shall operate as a wavier thereof or preclude any other exercise of enforcement of rights hereunder.
