If the Service is suspended for non-payment, Stitch may, in its sole discretion, charge a re-activation fee to reinstate them. You will promptly reimburse Stitch for any reasonable expenses of collection, including costs, disbursements, and reasonable outside legal fees Stitch incurs, to the extent necessitated by your refusal to pay amounts that you are not disputing in good faith. If suspended, Stitch will promptly restore use of the Service to Customer as soon as the event giving rise to the suspension has been resolved to Stitch’s satisfaction.

Confidentiality; Customer Data
6.1. Confidential Information. Each Party (“Receiving Party”) agrees to retain in confidence any information provided to it by the other party (“Disclosing Party”) that is marked, labeled or otherwise designated as confidential or proprietary or that Receiving Party knew, or should have known, was confidential due to the circumstances surrounding the disclosure by the Disclosing Party (”Confidential Information”). Confidential Information further means: (i) with respect to Stitch, the Platform, the Website, and any and all source code relating thereto, the terms of each Order Form, and any and all trade secrets and other non-public, confidential and/or proprietary information or material regarding Stitch and its Affiliates or any of its or their legal or business affairs, financing, customers (including customer lists), technology, systems, output, activities, plans, properties, pricing, data, or software (including all programs, object code, source code, outlines, routines, subroutines, revisions, supplements, modules, and upgrades, in each case, in any language, format or medium), in each case, that may be obtained or learned by or disclosed to you or your Representatives (as defined below) in the course of, in connection with and during the Term of this Agreement; and (ii) with respect to you, your Customer Data, Extracted Data, Loaded Data and any other non-public, confidential and/or proprietary information or material regarding you and your Affiliates or any of your or their legal or business affairs, financing, customers (including customer lists), input, activities, plans, properties, or data, in each case, that may be obtained or learned by or disclosed to you or any of your Representatives in the course of, in connection with and during the Term of this Agreement. The Receiving Party’s nondisclosure obligation shall apply to any information which the Receiving Party can document (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of, the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; (iv) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to the other party’s Confidential Information; or (v) is required to be disclosed pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party). Each party will at all times, both during the Term of this Agreement and thereafter, keep in trust and confidence all Confidential Information of the other party and shall only disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, representatives, affiliates and authorized contractors or subcontractors (collectively “Representatives”) having a need to know for the purposes of this Agreement. Each party will notify and inform such Representatives of each party’s limitations, duties, and obligations regarding use, access to, and nondisclosure of Confidential Information and will obtain or have obtained its Representatives’ agreements to comply with such limitations, duties, and obligations with regard to such Confidential Information no less restrictive than those contained herein. Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Agreement, in the event the Receiving Party is legally compelled to disclose any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information pursuant to applicable law, rule, regulation, regulator request of order, the Receiving Party will, to the extent permitted by such requirement, provide the Disclosing Party prompt prior written notice of such requirement so that the Disclosing Party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with the terms of this Section. If such protective order or other remedy is not obtained or the Disclosing Party waives compliance with the provisions of this Section, the Receiving Party may furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information which it is advised by counsel is legally required to be disclosed, and will use its best efforts to insure that confidential treatment shall be afforded such disclosed portion of the Confidential Information. Each party is liable for all acts and omissions of the Representatives related to the other party’s Confidential Information. Each Party agrees to give notice to the other Party immediately after learning of or having reason to suspect a breach of any of the proprietary restrictions set forth in this Section. The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
6.3. Sensitive Personal Information. As discussed in Section 6.4 below, Stitch will do its best to protect your Extracted Data, Loaded Data and Usage Data, but cannot guarantee its security. You agree to remove all Sensitive Personal Information before enabling Stitch’s access to your Extracted Data. Any access to Extracted Data that includes Sensitive Personal Information is at your own risk. Stitch will not have any liability that may result from your disclosure of such information to Stitch. If you intend to provide any Sensitive Personal Information as part of your Extracted Data, you will need to notify Stitch in writing and receive Stitch’s written consent prior to providing Stitch with such access. For example, if you provide any protected health information (“PHI”) as part of your Extracted Data, Stitch will require, and you will need to, enter into Stitch’s Business Associate Agreement (“BAA”). Please contact the Stitch team at email@example.com to receive additional details. To the extent any provision in the BAA or any other document you agree to with Stitch for purposes of providing Stitch with access to Sensitive Personal Information as part of your Extracted Data is inconsistent with this Agreement, then the provision of the BAA or such other document will govern, as applicable. To the extent any of your data, including Personal Information and personal data (as defined in Section 6.6 below) is accessed by Stitch as part of your Extracted Data, you agree that you have all rights and authorities necessary to process such data in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and that Stitch’s processing on your behalf shall not violate any applicable laws or any person or entity’s proprietary, privacy or intellectual property rights. You are solely responsible for (i) the content and legality of such data; (ii) ensuring compliance with all laws applicable to such data; (iii) your configuration and use of the Service, the Free Products, the Beta Features, the Platform and the Website; and (iv) taking appropriate action to secure, protect and backup such data, which may include use of encryption to protect such data from unauthorized access. For the avoidance of doubt, no other Personal Information or personal data, other than the protected categories described under “Sensitive Personal Information” are required to be removed from your Extracted Data.
6.4. Data Security. Stitch shall employ commercially reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to secure your Extracted Data, Loaded Data and Metadata on the Platform from unauthorized use or disclosure. Some of such data may be subject to governmental regulation or otherwise may require security measures beyond those set forth herein. Unless Stitch has first agreed in writing to provide such additional required security measures, Stitch shall have no obligation to do so or any liability in connection therewith.
6.5. Aggregated Data. Stitch may combine the Metadata with other similar data, and use such combined data to create Aggregated Data in accordance with the license grant set forth in Section 2.1.
6.6. European Economic Area. If you are established in, or any of the Extracted Data, Loaded Data, or Metadata contains the personal data of individuals in, the European Economic Area, Stitch will process any personal data you submit to Stitch when you use the Service in accordance with the Data Protection Addendum (DPA). You can download the Stitch DPA here, which will be supplemental to this Agreement. For the purposes of this Section 6.6, the terms “personal data” and “process” shall have the meanings given to them in the GDPR. To submit a signed DPA to Stitch, please use the DPA Submission Form.
6.7. Feedback. You may choose to or Stitch may invite you to submit comments or ideas about the Service and/or the Platform, including without limitation, about any of the Beta Features or Free Products and how to improve any of the foregoing (collectively, “Ideas”). By submitting any Idea, you agree that your disclosure is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction and will not place Stitch under any fiduciary or other obligation, and that Stitch is free to use the Idea without any additional compensation to you, and/or to disclose the Idea on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone. You further acknowledge that, by acceptance of your submission, Stitch does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to Stitch, or developed by Stitch’s employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
