Our “Service” is a cloud based application and platform for Incident response orchestration, alert management, Incident tracking, Incident resolution automation and any related analytics, provided by means of a software via https://www.squadcast.com (or at such other URL as Squadcast may designate from time to time), that includes but is not limited to any related application programming interfaces (API), interactive discussion areas, customer accounts and profiles, mobile applications, and other related components thereof, on an individual and collective basis. An “Incident” is an event that triggers the Service to alert your personnel using certain Contact Information. You must configure the Service for us, provide and maintain accurate Contact Information, follow proper procedure in communicating alerts and triggering events for Incidents to us and submit alert requests through proper channels, including, without limitation, alternate channels if standard channels are unavailable or the Service may not function properly. “Contact Information” means the names, email addresses, telephone numbers, and other required information of your personnel that you want the Service to alert in the event of an Incident and who have consented to receive such messages via the Service (each a “Contact Person”), along with other relevant information provided by you or your Users such as alert priorities. You will need to designate individuals authorized to maintain the Contact Information, configure the Service for handling Incidents, and receive reports from the Service (each a “User”). Instructions on how to configure the Service, provide Contact Information and otherwise get the full benefit of the Service will be found in the readme and help files, knowledge base, Github repositories and other documentation made available at https://support.squadcast.com/ (“Documentation”).

Statements of Work. All services to be performed shall be described in your pricing tier or a separate written, mutually agreed to statement of work signed by authorized representatives of both parties (each a “SOW“), each of which is expressly made subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms.

Each SOW should contain descriptions of the Services and a description of any Deliverables to be provided by us, our compensation, and any additional terms and conditions the parties deem appropriate. Both parties expressly acknowledge and agree that any schedules or timelines shall not be considered firm or fixed performance dates, are only to be regarded as estimated beginning and completion dates for the tasks and activities to be performed hereunder and are expected to be revised during the term of any engagement. We agree to use diligent efforts to meet schedules. All Services and Deliverables are deemed accepted by you upon completion or delivery and are warranted as described below. Service hours purchased by you are payable, and expire, as set forth in the SOW, but in any case no longer than 180 days from the date of purchase.
Changes. Each party may request changes that affect the scope or duration of the Services relating to any SOW. Neither party shall be bound by any change requested by the other party, until such change has been memorialized in writing and signed (or otherwise agreed to in writing, including e-mail) by authorized representatives of each party (“Change Order“). Each Change Order will be subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms.
Location and Access. We may perform the Services at your premises, our premises or such other premises that both parties may deem appropriate. The SOW may describe the location where we will perform the Services. You will permit us to have a reasonable and safe access to your premises, personnel and computer equipment for the purposes of performing the Services at your premises.
Customer Assistance. You shall provide us with such resources, information, cooperation, and assistance as may be reasonably requested in connection with the performance of the Services.

You acknowledge and agree that our ability to successfully perform the Services in a timely manner is contingent upon receipt of information, resources and assistance from you as requested. We will have no liability for deficiencies in the Services or deliverables, or failure to meet any schedule, resulting from your acts, omissions, agents, employees, instructions and the like.
Customer Information. You acknowledge and agree that we may, in performing our obligations pursuant to these Terms, be dependent upon or use data, material, and other information furnished by you without any independent investigation or verification thereof, and that we shall be entitled to rely upon the accuracy and completeness of such information in performing the Services.

You acknowledge that our damages and losses resulting from any breach of this clause would be extremely difficult to fix in an actual and accurate amount. Therefore, it is further agreed that if you breach this clause by hiring any Squadcast personnel (whether as an employee, officer, director, partner, consultant or otherwise), you will pay a fee not less than the total projected one-year annualized revenue attributable to that person or persons hired as liquidated damages. This fee would be payable immediately upon acceptance of hire.
