a) ensuring that such Authorized Third Parties comply with this EULA and
b) any breach of this EULA by such Authorized Third Parties,
and indemnify mIoT in relation to loss occasioned as a result of your breach or failure to do so.
2.3. Trial Use
If mIoT grants You Rights to use mIoT Technology on a trial basis (“Evaluation Software”), You may use the Technology for a period of 60 days from installation.
If You fail to stop using and/or return the Evaluation Software by the end of the trial period, You may be invoiced for such use at mIoT’s standard rates. mIoT, in its discretion, may stop providing the Evaluation Software and Services at any time. You will no longer have access to any related data, and must immediately cease using the mIoT Technology. Except where expressly agreed in writing mIoT will not have any liability relating to Your use of the Evaluation Software and Your use of such software, including in production environment, is at Your own risk.
You will be informed of Upgrades to the Software and are encouraged to download and use all upgrades, modifications, variations and new versions of the Software as soon as they are made available.
Older versions of Software may become inoperable and may no longer be supported.
2.5. Interoperability of Software
If agreed in relation to provision of the Services, mIoT will provide You with the information needed to achieve interoperability between the Software and another independently created program, for example should You wish to maintain Your own platform or database. MIoT may require You to treat such information as Confidential Information.
2.6. Subscription Renewal
Your right to use any mIoT Technology if acquired on a subscription basis, will automatically renew for the renewal period indicated on any Purchase Order which You or Your mIoT Partner placed with mIoT (“Renewal Term”). Where no renewal period is inducted on a Purchase Order then the subscription will automatically renew on an annual basis, unless:
(a) You notify Your Approved Source in writing at least 45 days before the end of Your then- current Usage Term, of Your intention not to renew; or
(b) You or Your mIoT Partner elect not to auto-renew at the time of the initial order placed with mIoT.
Your Approved Source will notify You in advance of any Renewal Term if, fee changes will apply for the Renewal Term. The new fees will apply for the upcoming Renewal Term unless You or Your mIoT Partner promptly notify mIoT in writing, before the renewal date, that You do not accept the fee changes. In that case, Your subscription will terminate at the end of the current Term.
