1.1 Subscription. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, PROS grants to Customer and its Users web-based access to the Application for use for Customer’s own internal business purposes during the Subscription Term in accordance with the Scope.

Customer will: (i) use its best efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Application, and notify PROS immediately of any such unauthorized access or use; (ii) cooperate with any reasonable investigation by PROS of any outage, security problem or suspected breach of the Agreement; and (iii) comply with all PROS instructions relating to Customer’s access to or use of the Application, including, but not limited to, instructions specifying specific windows of time for certain types of Data uploading.

1.5 Use Verification. During the Subscription Term, PROS will have the right, at its own expense, to monitor the use of the Application for purposes of measuring and reporting on usage, and Customer will respond to any reasonable inquiries from PROS to assess the Scope.
1.6 Security. During the Subscription Term, PROS will maintain security measures designed to protect the integrity of, and to prevent unauthorized access to, the Application and the Customer Data stored therein. Such security measures will conform to the Security Policy.

1.7 Suspension of Access. PROS may, on written notice, suspend access to the Application without liability if: (i) PROS reasonably believes that the Application is being used in violation of this Agreement; (ii) Customer does not cooperate with reasonable investigation by PROS of any suspected violation of this Agreement; (iii) the Application or Customer Data are accessed or manipulated by a third party without Customer consent; (iv) PROS is required by law, or a regulatory or government body to suspend access to the Application; (v) if any undisputed invoiced amounts remain unpaid by Customer for more than thirty (30) calendar days past the due date; or (vi) there is another event for which PROS reasonably believes that the suspension of access to the Application is necessary to protect the cloud environment in which Customer’s instance of the Application is deployed.
1.8 Audit. Customer agrees that PROS’ then-current SOC 2 audit report (or comparable industry-standard successor report) and/or PROS’ ISO 27001 Certification will be used to satisfy any audit or inspection requests by or on behalf of Customer, and PROS will make such reports available to Customer upon Customer’s written request.
2.1 Fees. Customer will pay all fees for the subscription to the Application and Professional Services as set forth herein or on the applicable Order(s) and/or SOW(s). Payment obligations are irrevocable and non-cancellable, and any fees paid are non-refundable, except as set forth in Sections 5.4 and 8.3.
2.2 Invoices. PROS will invoice Customer for Application subscription fees for the first year of the Subscription Term on or after the effective date of the relevant Order, and for any subsequent year of the Subscription Term, in advance of each such annual period on a date which will cause such fees to become due and payable the week prior to the commencement of such annual period. PROS will invoice Customer for Professional Services fees as set forth in the applicable SOW. Invoices will be issued electronically to the ‘invoicing contact’ identified in the applicable Order or SOW.
2.3 Payment. Invoices are payable upon receipt and are past due if not paid within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. Late payments will be subject to interest of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is less. Customer will pay any reasonable legal fees or other costs incurred by PROS to collect any such delinquent amounts. Customer may not withhold (except as a result of a reasonable and good faith dispute of invoiced amounts communicated to PROS in writing prior to the due date) or offset fees due to PROS for any reason.
2.4 Taxes. Fees are exclusive of Taxes, and Customer will be solely responsible for the payment of all such Taxes (other than Taxes computed on the basis of the net income of PROS). If any applicable law requires Customer to withhold amounts from any payments to PROS hereunder, (i) Customer will effect such withholding and remit such amounts, and (ii) the sum payable by Customer upon which the deduction or withholding is based may be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after such deduction or withholding, PROS receives and retains, free from liability for such deduction or withholding, a net amount equal to the amount PROS would have received and retained in the absence of such required deduction or withholding. Upon request, Customer will provide PROS evidence that any withheld amounts have been remitted to the applicable governmental authority. If a resale certificate or other certificate or document of exemption is required in order to exempt the Application subscription from any tax liability, Customer will furnish such certificate or document to PROS within thirty (30) days of the Effective Date. Customer will promptly provide PROS with any changes in the status of such resale certificate.

3.2 Expenses. Customer will reimburse PROS for all reasonable travel and subsistence expenses computed at the rates specified in the applicable SOW for non-local travel, and airfare, meals and other out-of-pocket expenses.
