CUBE will make commercially reasonable efforts to make sure that the Software system is operational and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, User acknowledges that availability may sometimes be interrupted by: weather events (acts of God), hardware and software problems (whether internal to CUBE or third party providers), and software and hardware upgrades, installations and maintenance, as well as many other unforeseen possibilities. CUBE will make commercially reasonable efforts to keep the Software system up and running and in the event that the Software system is not operational in whole or in part, CUBE will make commercially reasonable efforts to restore full operation of the system promptly. USER, HOWEVER, ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL CUBE BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, RESULTING FROM THE LAURIS ONLINE WEBSITE BEING UNACCESSIBLE FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME FOR ANY REASON.
User agrees that the single (i.e., per seat) renewable license specified in Section 2, above, and under which User is operating the Software system, has a duration coterminous with the User’s subscription period.
User agrees that use of the Software system and the grant of the license specified in Section 2, above, is subject to the payment of any applicable licensing fees and costs. CUBE reserves the right to immediately and without notice cancel this Agreement, as well as restrict or terminate access to the Software system in the event registration fee payments remain outstanding. Similarly, in the event the license described in Section 2, above, is not renewed, CUBE reserves the right to terminate this Agreement, as well as restrict or terminate access to the Software system as of the date of the license’s expiration. In the event access to the Software system is restricted for non-payment or non-renewal, User agrees to hold harmless and release CUBE from and against any and all claims, damages, costs, fees, expenses, loss of business or business interruption suffered by User as a result of the restriction of access.

The full invoice amount is due prior to a user’s first use of the system, unless otherwise expressly indicated in a separate signed writing by CUBE. If User defaults in any payment when due, then the whole invoice amount shall immediately become due and payable upon demand, or CUBE, at its option without prejudice to other lawful remedies, may defer delivery or cancel this contract. Should User decide to terminate this Agreement prior to the expiration of the Agreement’s term, CUBE may, but is not obligated to, return a part of the invoiced amount. User shall reimburse CUBE, upon demand, for any costs of collection incurred by CUBE, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
Users acknowledges that CUBE may review or monitor utilization of the Software system and that such review or monitoring is to be carried out at CUBE’s sole discretion.

IF USER RESTRICTIONS ARE PUT IN PLACE BY CUBE RELATED TO INAPPROPRIATE ACCOUNT ACTIVITY, USER AGREES CUBE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY RELATED TO THE SYSTEM’S UNAVAILIABILITY.
