You hereby acknowledge that HiBob has no control over such Third Party Services, and further acknowledge and agree that HiBob is not responsible for the availability of Third Party Services, and does not have responsibility or liability for any goods, services, content, advertisements, products, or any materials available on and/or through such Third Party Services.
4.3. The Services may use or include third party software, files and components that are subject to open source and third-party license terms (“ Third Party Components”).

5. Consideration; Taxes
5.1. Consideration. In consideration for the Services and rights granted herein, commencing on the Effective Date, Customer shall regularly pay HiBob during the initial subscription term, the fees listed in the applicable Order Form (“Fees”). All Fees shall be payable in advance, based on the Services and the number of Authorized Users identified in the applicable Order Form. Fees are subject to change upon subscription renewal. Fees are non-refundable and payment obligations are non-cancellable. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, in an event of termination for cause according to Section 12.2. below, due to a material breach by HiBob, the foregoing shall not apply to amounts paid for the Servicess in advance, but which are unused on the date of termination (calculated on a pro-rata basis of the balance period between the termination date and the original term of the applicable Order Form), which may be refundable.
5.2. Minimum Authorized Users. Customer must pay the Fees equal to the minimum number of Authorized Users as set forth in the applicable Order Form for the subscription term (“Minimum Subscription”). In the event that the Customer requires additional Authorized User subscriptions beyond the Minimum Subscription during the subscription term then: (i) for a Customer under a monthly payment plan: Customer shall pay for the actual number of Authorized Users for the given month; (i) for a Customer under an annual payment plan: Customer shall make a payment for the difference between the original Minimum Subscription Fees paid and the updated Minimum Subscription (based on the additional Authorized Users in such month) for the remainder of the subscription term. For the removal of doubt, Customer must in any event pay no less than the Minimum Subscription Fees regardless if the Authorized User count goes below the Minimum Subscription during the subscription term.
5.3. Invoicing. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to HiBob and such other information required by the Order Form.
5.4. Taxes. HiBob’s fees are exclusive of any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, other charges, domestic or foreign imposed by any federal, state, or local tax authority with respect thereto including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Customer’s purchases hereunder. If HiBob has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section 5, HiBob will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides HiBob with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. To the extent Customer is required by law to withhold income-based taxes based upon the fees hereunder, Customer will deduct such tax from the fees payable to HiBob and remit them to the appropriate government authorities; provided that Customer sends HiBob a receipt showing the payment of such Taxes, and provides HiBob with reasonable support and with sufficient evidence to enable HiBob to obtain any credits available to it. For clarity, HiBob is solely responsible for Taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.
5.5. Late Payments. If HiBob has not received payment within the due date set forth in the Order Form, and without prejudice to any other rights and remedies of HiBob under this Agreement or law, HiBob may, without liability to the Customer: (i) suspend access, including by disabling the Customer’s password and account, to all or part of the Services and HiBob shall be under no obligation to provide any or all of the Services while the invoice(s) concerned remain unpaid; and charge interest from the day on which the Fees are due at a rate of 1.5 per cent per month, but in no event higher than the maximum legal rate permissible under applicable law.
6. Privacy and Data Protection
The Parties shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations pertaining to data security and privacy and shall collect data only in a lawful manner. HiBob shall use reasonable measures to protect Customer Data, which shall however be at least compliant with ISO 27001:2013 and Soc2. Customer warrants that such data shall have been obtained and shall be provided or made available to HiBob in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including by obtaining all necessary consents (as applicable) from data subjects whose data is provided or made available giving consent, as may be necessary to permit HiBob to provide the Service and perform its obligations as contemplated by this Agreement.
In case Customer processes through the Platform information of any EU citizens, the Parties may execute a separate Data Processing Rider governing such process.
