User Agreement


This DiPhyx Enterprise Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into by and between DiPhyx, Inc. (“DiPhyx”) the entity or corporation you represent in accepting these terms, or if that does not apply, then you personally (“Customer” or “Enterprise User”). This Agreement consists of the terms and conditions set forth below and any attachments, addenda, or exhibits referenced in the Agreement, and any Order Forms that reference this Agreement. The “Effective Date” of this Agreement is the date which is the earlier of (a) Customer’s initial access to any DiPhyx Offering (as defined below) through any online provisioning, registration or Order Form process, or (b) the effective date of an Order Form referencing this Agreement.

1. Overview

DiPhyx provides a cloud-based, high-performance computing environment which enables customers to run Jobs that involve the execution of Licensed Application Software on CSP Infrastructure among other features and functionalities (the “DiPhyx Platform”). This Agreement sets forth the terms pursuant to which Customer may access and use the DiPhyx Platform in connection with one or more Order Forms or on a monthly “pay-as-you-go” basis (“PAYG”).

2. DiPhyx Platform

2.1 Access and Use. Customer may access and use the DiPhyx Platform only for its own internal business purposes in accordance with the Documentation and this Agreement, including the relevant Order Form.

2.1.1 DiPhyx will monitor Customer’s hourly usage of CSP Infrastructure via the DiPhyx Platform, and will compute (based upon the DiPhyx Pricing described below) the total fees owed by Customer to DiPhyx as a result of such usage, after taking into account the remaining amount of any Deposits or other fees (“Enterprise User Monthly Infrastructure Fees”). DiPhyx will calculate Enterprise User Monthly Infrastructure Fees by multiplying (i) each DiPhyx Customer’s hourly usage (during that month) of third-party CSP Infrastructure via the DiPhyx Platform, by (ii) the sum of the applicable CSP Infrastructure Rates and DiPhyx Platform Rates. Enterprise User Monthly Infrastructure Fees will include the sum of such amounts for each Authorized User, as well as any Other Infrastructure Fees incurred that month. The Infrastructure Rates and Platform Rates applicable to Jobs run by DiPhyx Customers will be accessible to designated administrators of the Enterprise User Account via the DiPhyx Platform interface. Such rates may also be specified (in whole or in part) in an active Order Form. Reserved Instance and other flat-fee or similar non-usage-based pricing, may also be specified in an Order Form.

2.1.2 DiPhyx will also monitor, during each calendar month, each Customer’s hourly usage of third-party Licensed Application Software (to the extent it is licensed on an On-Demand basis) via the DiPhyx Platform, and will compute (as described below) the total fees owed by the Customer to each relevant ISV for that calendar month as a result of such usage (“Enterprise User Monthly Software Fees”). DiPhyx will calculate Enterprise User Monthly Software Fees by multiplying (i) each Authorized User’s hourly usage (during that month) of third-party Licensed Application Software (to the extent it is licensed on an On-Demand basis) via the DiPhyx Platform, by (ii) the applicable On- Demand rates as specified in the DiPhyx Platform interface.

2.2 Authorized Users. Only Authorized Users may access or use the DiPhyx Platform. Each Authorized User must keep its login credentials confidential and not share them with anyone else. Customer is responsible for its Authorized Users’ compliance with this Agreement and actions taken through their accounts (excluding misuse of accounts caused by DiPhyx’s breach of this Agreement). Customer will promptly notify DiPhyx if it becomes aware of any compromise of its Authorized User login credentials. DiPhyx uses Authorized Users account information as described in its Privacy Policy.

2.3 Restrictions.** Except as expressly allowed by DiPhyx in writing, Customer will not (and will not permit anyone else to) do any of the following: (a) provide access to, distribute, sell or sublicense the DiPhyx Platform  to a third party, (b) use the DiPhyx Platform on behalf of, or to provide any product or service to, third parties, (c) use the DiPhyx Platform to develop a similar or competing product or service, (d) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or seek to access the source code or non-public APIs to the DiPhyx Platform, except to the extent expressly permitted by Law (and then only with prior notice to DiPhyx), (e) modify or create derivative works of the DiPhyx Platform or copy any element of the DiPhyx Platform, (f) remove or obscure any proprietary notices in the DiPhyx Platform, (g) publish benchmarks or performance information about the DiPhyx Platform, (h) interfere with the DiPhyx Platform’s operation, circumvent its access restrictions or conduct any security or vulnerability test of the DiPhyx Platform or (i) transmit any viruses or other harmful materials to the DiPhyx Platform.

3. Support and Availability

DiPhyx will adhere to the SLA and Support Policies. DiPhyx will provide Customer with the level of Support specified in an Order Form. If no level of Support is specified in an Order Form, DiPhyx will provide “Production” level Support.

4. Customer Data

4.1 Data Use. As between the parties, Customer retains all intellectual property and other rights in Customer Data. Customer grants DiPhyx the non-exclusive, worldwide right to process the Customer Data to provide the DiPhyx Platform, Support and any Professional Services to Customer under this Agreement to prevent or address service or technical problems therein, or as may be required by law. Use of Customer Data includes sharing Customer Data as Customer directs through the DiPhyx Platform.

4.2 Security. DiPhyx uses reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to protect the DiPhyx Platform and Customer Data as described in the Security Policy.

4.3 Personal Data. Each party agrees to comply with the DPA.

4.4 Customer Data Export. During the term of this Agreement and for 30 days afterwards, Customer may export Customer Data from the DiPhyx Platform using the export features described in the Documentation. Customer acknowledges that Other Infrastructure Fees continue to apply to Customer Data in the DiPhyx Platform.

5. Customer Obligations

Customer is responsible for Customer Data, including its content, accuracy, and legality, and agrees to comply with Laws and the AUP in using the DiPhyx Platform. Customer represents and warrants that it has made all disclosures and has all rights, consents and permissions necessary to use its Customer Data with the DiPhyx Platform and grant DiPhyx the rights in Section 4.1 (Data Use), all without violating or infringing Laws, third-party rights (including intellectual property, publicity or privacy rights) or any terms or privacy policies that apply to the Customer Data. Customer is responsible for (i) reviewing the information made available by DiPhyx relating to data security and making an independent determination as to whether the DiPhyx Platform meets Customer’s requirements and legal obligations under applicable Laws, and (ii) compliance with the terms of all licenses and technical documentation relating to the use of the DiPhyx Platform, the Licensed Application Software and the CSP Infrastructure, (iii) properly configuring the DiPhyx Platform and maintaining backing up Customer Data.

6. Suspension of Service

DiPhyx may suspend Customer’s access to the DiPhyx Platform and related services if (a) Customer breaches Section 2.3 (Restrictions) or Section 5 (Customer Obligations), (b) Customer’s account is 5 days or more overdue, or (c) Customer’s actions risk harm to others or the security, availability or integrity of the DiPhyx Platform. Where practicable, DiPhyx will use reasonable efforts to provide Customer with prior notice of the suspension (email sufficing). Once the issue requiring suspension is resolved, DiPhyx will promptly restore Customer’s access to the DiPhyx Platform in accordance with this Agreement.

7. Professional Services

Any purchased Professional Services are as described in the relevant Order Form (or statement of work signed by both parties). Customer will give DiPhyx timely access to Customer Materials reasonably needed for the Professional Services, and if Customer fails to do so, DiPhyx’s obligation to provide Professional Services will be excused until access is provided. DiPhyx will use Customer Materials only for purposes of providing Professional Services. DiPhyx exclusively owns all rights, title, and interest to any deliverables that result from or are provided under the Professional Services. Customer may use Professional Services deliverables only as part of its authorized use of the DiPhyx Platform, subject to the same terms as for the DiPhyx Platform in Section 2 (DiPhyx Platform) and Section 5 (Customer Obligations).

8. Fees and Payment

8.1 Fees and Taxes. Customer agrees to pay all Fees in accordance with this Agreement and applicable Order Forms. Except as set forth below, use of the DiPhyx Platform requires a Deposit against which usage of the DiPhyx Platform by Customer is applied at the DiPhyx Pricing rates. DiPhyx will make available to Customer, via an administrative interface to the DiPhyx Platform, the detailed usage of each Authorized User and the current balance, if any, of unexpired Deposits. Customer is responsible for Fees for any excess usage and Third Party Software Fees, which will be invoiced monthly in arrears.

8.2 Payment. All Fees (i) must be paid in U.S. Dollars, and (ii) are due within 30 days of the invoice date unless otherwise set forth in an Order Form. Late payments are subject to a service charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount allowed by Law, whichever is less. All Fees and payment obligations are non-refundable and non-cancelable except as expressly set forth in this Agreement. Customer is responsible for any sales, use, GST, value-added, withholding or similar taxes or levies that apply to its Orders, whether domestic or foreign (“Taxes”), other than Vendor’s income tax. Fees and expenses are exclusive of Taxes. Taxes will not be deducted from payments to DiPhyx, except as required by applicable law, in which case Customer will increase the amount payable as necessary so that, after making all required deductions and withholdings, DiPhyx receives and retains (free from any liability for Taxes) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made. DiPhyx will invoice Customer using the billing contact information set forth in the applicable Order Form or as otherwise updated by Customer. In the event Customer prefers to use any other billing platform for invoicing and payment hereunder, the parties will reasonably work together to facilitate the same, provided that such platform is: (i) able to accommodate the services payable hereunder; and (ii) operational without cost to DiPhyx (i.e., use of such platform is either without out-of-pocket cost to DiPhyx, including for any related set-up fees, or Customer promptly reimburses or otherwise credits DiPhyx for any such additional costs or fees).

8.3 PAYG. If approved by DiPhyx, Customer may use the DiPhyx Platform on a PAYG basis at applicable PAYG rates.  Fees for PAYG usage will be invoiced monthly in arrears. Unless otherwise agreed by DiPhyx, PAYG requires a valid credit card for PAYG usage. Customer authorizes DiPhyx to charge Customer’s account for the DiPhyx Offerings using that payment method. Customer must keep all information in its billing account current to ensure that all Fees are charged to the appropriate account and are timely paid.

8.4 Reseller Orders Forms. Customer may procure certain DiPhyx Offerings through a DiPhyx-authorized reseller (“Reseller”) pursuant to a separate agreement between Customer and Reseller (a “Reseller Arrangement”), which may specify different terms regarding invoicing, taxes and payments. DiPhyx will only be obligated to provide the DiPhyx Offerings to Customer in connection with a Reseller Arrangement if DiPhyx and Reseller have agreed in writing to such purchase. Customer acknowledges and agrees that, solely in connection with the purchase by Customer through a Reseller Arrangement: (a) DiPhyx may share information with Reseller related to Customer’s use and consumption of the DiPhyx Offerings; (b) notwithstanding anything to contrary in this Agreement, references to “Customer” in each of the defined terms “Fees” and “Order Form” in this Agreement shall be replaced with “Reseller,” and all payments of fees, refunds and credits, if any, are payable by or to the Reseller; (c) this Agreement governs Customer’s use of the DiPhyx Offerings, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Reseller Arrangement; and (d) Reseller is not authorized to make any changes to this Agreement or otherwise authorized to make any warranties, representations, promises or commitments on behalf of DiPhyx or in any way concerning the DiPhyx Offerings.

9. Warranties and Disclaimers

9.1 Limited Warranty. DiPhyx warrants to Customer that (a) the DiPhyx Platform will perform materially as described in the Documentation (the “Performance Warranty”) and (b) DiPhyx will perform any Professional Services in a professional and workmanlike manner (the “Professional Services Warranty”).

9.2 Warranty Remedy. If DiPhyx breaches Section 9.1 (Limited Warranty) and Customer makes a reasonably detailed warranty claim within 30 days of discovering the issue with respect to the DiPhyx Platform or of receipt of the applicable Professional Services, then DiPhyx will use reasonable efforts to correct the non-conformity. If DiPhyx cannot do so within 30 days of Customer’s warranty claim, either party may terminate the affected Order Form as it relates to the non-conforming Service or Professional Services. DiPhyx will then refund to Customer any pre-paid, unused fees for the terminated portion of the DiPhyx Platform (for the Performance Warranty) or for the non-conforming Professional Services (for the Professional Services Warranty). These procedures are Customer’s exclusive remedy and DiPhyx’s entire liability for breach of the warranties in Section 9.1. These warranties do not apply to (a) issues caused by misuse or unauthorized modifications, (b) issues in or caused by ISVs, CSPs, or other third-party systems or (c) Trials and Betas or other free or evaluation use. Refunds do not include costs for third party commitments DiPhyx has made on behalf of Customer, including any Reserved Instance.

9.3 DISCLAIMER. Except as expressly provided in Section 9.1 (Limited Warranty), DiPhyx Offerings are provided “AS IS”. DiPhyx and its suppliers make no other warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, including warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title or noninfringement. DiPhyx does not warrant that Customer’s use of the DiPhyx Offerings will be uninterrupted or error-free. DiPhyx is not responsible for the accuracy of the Customer Data, including the output of Jobs, and its suitability for any desired use or purpose. DiPhyx makes no warranties and disclaims all liability related to the CSP Infrastructure and License Application Software. DiPhyx may change, discontinue, or deprecate certain functionality of the DiPhyx Platform from time to time (including APIs) but will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer of any material change to the DiPhyx Platform.

12. Usage Data ** 

DiPhyx may collect Usage Data and use it to operate, improve, train and support the DiPhyx Platform and for other lawful business practices, such as analytics, benchmarking, recommendations, and reports. However, DiPhyx will not disclose Usage Data externally unless it has been (a) de-identified so that it does not individually identify Customer, its Authorized Users or any other person and (b) aggregated with usage data across other DiPhyx customers.

13. Limitations of Liability

13.1 Consequential Damages Waiver. Except for Excluded Claims, neither party (nor its suppliers) will have any liability arising out of or related to this Agreement for any loss of use, lost data, lost profits or revenues, failure of security mechanisms, interruption of business or any indirect, special, incidental, reliance or consequential damages of any kind, even if informed of their possibility in advanceDiPhyx will have no liability arising out of Customer’s use of CSP Infrastructure or Licensed Application Software via the DiPhyx Platform or the cost of procurement of substitute services.

13.2 Liability Cap. Except for Excluded Claims or Enhanced Claims, each party’s (and its suppliers’) entire liability arising out of or related to this Agreement will not exceed in aggregate the amounts paid or payable by Customer to DiPhyx during the prior 12 months under this Agreement (“General Liability Cap”).

13.3 Excluded Claims. “Excluded Claims” means claims based on: (a) liability that cannot be excluded under applicable law, (b) Customer’s failure to pay all Fees due under this Agreement or Customer’s breach of Sections 2.3 or 5 or, (c) either party’s breach of Section 15 (Confidentiality), excluding breaches related to Customer Data.

13.4 Enhanced Claims. For any and all Enhanced Claims, DiPhyx’s aggregate liability will be subject to an enhanced liability cap not to exceed the lesser of 3 times the amounts paid or payable by Customer to DiPhyx during the prior 12 months under this Agreement or $1,000,000.00. “Enhanced Claims” mean (a) claims based on the unauthorized disclosure of Customer Data caused by a breach of DiPhyx’s obligations under Section 4.2 (Security), and (b) amounts payable to third parties under the indemnifying party’s obligations in Section 14 (Indemnification).

13.5 Nature of Claims and Failure of Essential Purpose. The waivers and limitations in this Section 13 apply regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise and will survive and apply even if any limited remedy in this Agreement fails of its essential purpose.

14. Indemnification

14.1 Indemnification by DiPhyx. DiPhyx will defend Customer from and against any third-party claim to the extent alleging that the DiPhyx Platform, when used by Customer as authorized in this Agreement, infringes a third party’s U.S. patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret, and will indemnify Customer against any damages or costs finally awarded against Customer (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) or agreed in settlement by DiPhyx resulting from the claim.

14.2 Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend DiPhyx from and against any third-party claim to the extent resulting from Customer Data or Customer Materials, and will indemnify and hold harmless DiPhyx against any damages or costs finally awarded against DiPhyx (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) or agreed in settlement by Customer resulting from the claim.

14.3 Procedures. The indemnifying party’s obligations in this Section 14 are subject to receiving (a) prompt notice of the claim, (b) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense and settlement of the claim and (c) all reasonably necessary cooperation of the indemnified party, at the indemnifying party’s expense for reasonable out-of-pocket costs. The indemnifying party may not settle any claim without the indemnified party’s prior consent if settlement would require the indemnified party to admit fault or take or refrain from taking any action (other than relating to use of the DiPhyx Platform, when DiPhyx is the indemnifying party). The indemnified party may participate in a claim with its own counsel at its own expense.

14.4 Mitigation and Exceptions. In response to an actual or potential infringement claim, if required by settlement or injunction or as DiPhyx determines necessary to avoid material liability, DiPhyx may at its option: (a) procure rights for Customer’s continued use of the DiPhyx Platform, (b) replace or modify the allegedly infringing portion of the DiPhyx Platform to avoid infringement without reducing the DiPhyx Platform’s overall functionality or (c) terminate the affected Order Form and refund to Customer any pre-paid, unused fees for the terminated portion of the Subscription Term. DiPhyx’s obligations in this Section 14 do not apply (1) to infringement resulting from Customer’s modification of the DiPhyx Platform or use of the DiPhyx Platform in combination with items not provided by DiPhyx, (2) to unauthorized use of the DiPhyx Platform, (3) to CSP Infrastructure or Licensed Application Software (4) if Customer settles or makes any admissions about a claim without DiPhyx’s prior consent or (5) to Trials and Betas or other free or evaluation use. This Section 14 sets out Customer’s exclusive remedy and DiPhyx’s entire liability regarding infringement of third-party intellectual property rights.

Customer’s Confidential Information includes Customer Data.

15.2 Obligations. As the receiving party, each party will (a) hold Confidential Information in confidence and not disclose it to third parties except as permitted in this Agreement, including Section 4.1 (Data Use), and (b) only use Confidential Information to fulfill its obligations and exercise its rights in this Agreement. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know (including, for DiPhyx, the subcontractors), provided it remains responsible for their compliance with this Section 15 and they are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective than this Section 16.

15.3 Exclusions. These confidentiality obligations do not apply to information that the receiving party can document (a) is or becomes public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party, (b) it rightfully knew or possessed prior to receipt under this Agreement, (c) it rightfully received from a third party without breach of confidentiality obligations or (d) it independently developed without using the disclosing party’s Confidential Information.

15.4 Remedies. Unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information may cause substantial harm for which damages alone are an insufficient remedy. Each party may seek appropriate equitable relief, in addition to other available remedies, for breach or threatened breach of this Section 15.

16. Required Disclosures

Nothing in this Agreement prohibits either party from making disclosures, including of Customer Data and other Confidential Information, if required by Law, subpoena or court order, provided (if permitted by Law) it notifies the other party in advance and cooperates in any effort to obtain confidential treatment.

Trials and Betas are optional and either party may terminate Trials and Betas at any time for any reason. Trials and Betas may be inoperable, incomplete or include features that DiPhyx may never release, and their features and performance information are DiPhyx’s Confidential Information.

Any non-permitted assignment is void. This Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party’s permitted successors and assigns.

18.2 Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Delaware and the United States without regard to conflict-of-law provisions and without regard to the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.

In this Agreement, headings are for convenience only and “including” and similar terms are to be construed without limitation. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (including electronic copies and PDFs), each of which is deemed an original and which together form one and the same agreement.

18.5 Amendments. Any amendments, modifications or supplements to this Agreement must be in writing and signed by each party’s authorized representatives or, as appropriate, agreed through electronic means provided by DiPhyx. Nonetheless, with notice to Customer, DiPhyx may modify the Policies to reflect new features or changing practices, but the modifications will not materially decrease DiPhyx’s overall obligations during the term of an Order Form. The terms in any Customer purchase order or business form will not amend or modify this Agreement and are expressly rejected by DiPhyx; any of these Customer documents are for administrative purposes only and have no legal effect.

18.6 Waivers and Severability. Waivers must be signed by the waiving party’s authorized representative and cannot be implied from conduct. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so the rest of this Agreement remains in effect.

18.7 Force Majeure. Neither party is liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement (except for a failure to pay fees) due to events beyond its reasonable control, such as a strike, blockade, war, pandemic, act of terrorism, riot, Internet or utility failures, refusal of government license or natural disaster.

18.8 Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors, not agents, partners or joint venturers.
