SaaS License Agreement

This SaaS license agreement applies to, and governs any written and/or electronic order form issued by FarmSee and agreed to by Customer, by clicking and/or execution, as applicable, for the provision of the applicable license and services granted under such ordering document (the "Order Form"). This Agreement is hereby incorporated by reference into, and made a part of, such Order Form. This Agreement and the Order Form are collectively referred to as this "Agreement". This Agreement constitutes a binding agreement between FarmSee, (or the any other FarmSee subsidiary or affiliate entity specified in the Order Form, if applicable) (“Company”) and the customer specified in the Order Form ("Customer") (each, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”). To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between a provision in this Agreement and a provision in the Order Form, this Agreement shall prevail, unless the Order Form specifically state otherwise.



Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Company hereby grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable and revocable right and license to remotely access (i.e. on a SaaS basis) and/or use (as the case may be) the Farmsee precision livestock monitoring and growth optimization application (the "FarmSee Platform") during the Term (as defined below), solely for Customer's internal purposes and in conjunction with Customer's use of the hardware devices that Customer purchased from Company or a Company-Authorized Reseller (as applicable) (the "Authorized Equipment"). "Company Authorized Reseller" refers to any third-party entity that Company has expressly approved to sell, distribute, or market the hardware devices compatible with the FarmSee Platform. This approval may be granted through a formal reseller agreement, written authorization, or other documented means as determined by Company in its sole discretion. Company reserves the right to add or remove entities from this designation at any time and may communicate such changes to Customer as appropriate. For the avoidance of doubt, Company does not endorse or provide warranties for any services or products provided by Company Authorized Resellers other than as expressly provided otherwise herein. Unless otherwise indicated, the term “Licensed Product” includes the FarmSee Platform, the Authorized Equipment, as well as any appliance, manuals or documentation (“Documentation”) provided or made available to Customer in connection with the operation of the FarmSee Platform. Customer may only use the Licensed Product in accordance with the Documentation, subject to the use limitations indicated herein, in the Order Form and applicable laws and regulations.


2.1 The support and maintenance services (as detailed in the SLA) may be performed by Company, Company Authorized Resellers, and/or Company's other certified third-party providers ("Support Providers"). The Licensed Product, any services detailed in the Order Form, any Professional Services (as defined below) and the services provided under the SLA shall be referred to as the “Services”). The Company reserves the right to provide any of the Customer's information (including, without limitation, the Customer Data, as defined below) to the Support Providers as needed to facilitate the provision of the Services and/or any related support.

2.2 The Licensed Product may be accessed solely by Customer's employees or service providers who are explicitly authorized by Customer to access and use the Licensed Product (each, a “User”). Customer shall immediately report any unauthorized access or use of the Licensed Product to Company. In order to access the Licensed Product, Customer and/or its Users may be required to set up an administrative account with Company ("Account"). Customer warrants and represents that all information submitted during the registration process is, and will thereafter remain, complete and accurate. Customer shall be responsible and liable for all activities of its Users and all activities that occur under or in its Account. Customer will require that all Users keep their user ID and password information strictly confidential.  

2.3 In the event Customer wishes to receive any additional services from Company which are not included in this Agreement, such as installation, deployment, configuration, customization, integration, training, or other professional services (“Professional Services”) Customer shall request same from Company in writing, and, subject to Company's agreement in its sole discretion, such Professional Services shall be set out in subsequent Statements of Work to this Agreement, as shall be negotiated and executed by both Parties (each, a “SOW”). Professional Services shall be charged in accordance with the fees and payment terms specified within the applicable SOW. Each SOW is hereby deemed incorporated into this Agreement by reference. To the extent of any conflict between the main body of this Agreement and a respective SOW, the former shall prevail, unless and to the extent that the SOW expressly states otherwise.
