6. Fees and Payment.
6.1 Fees. With the exception of the Free Edition, Customer shall pay Arize all applicable fees in the amount, at the end of each month based on the level of Services utilized by Customer in the amounts set forth in the Product Plan, as well as sale, use and other taxes due on such amounts (other than amounts based on Arize’s net income). Customer shall make all payments hereunder in US dollars. The Free Edition shall be provided to the Customer free at charge, subject to the Customer’s compliance with the terms hereunder.

The credit card or debit card information will be used by Arize to initiate payment for the Services at the end of each month. Arize may obtain preapproval on the credit card or debit card account for an amount up to the amount of the payment set forth in this Section 6. If Customer enrolls to make recurring payments automatically based on the level of Service utilized, all charges and fees will be billed to the account that Customer designates during the setup process. If Customer wants to designate a different account, or if there is a change in the account, Customer shall promptly provide the updated information.

6.3 Invoices. If Customer fails to provide a valid credit card or debit card, or if for some reason Arize is unable to process the payment, Arize will invoice Customer at the end of each month. Customer agrees to pay all invoiced amounts within fifteen (15) calendar days of the invoice date.
6.4 Overdue Charges. If Arize does not receive fees by the due date, then at Arize’s discretion, such charges may accrue late interest at the rate of one and half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.
6.5 Suspension of Services. If any amounts owed by Customer are ten (10) or more days overdue, Arize may, without limiting Arize’s other rights and remedies, suspend Customer’s and its Users’ access to the Services or Application until such amounts are paid in full.
7.1 Non-Disclosure. Each Party acknowledges that in the course of the performance of this Agreement, a Party (“Receiving Party”) may obtain the Confidential Information of the other Party (“Disclosing Party”). The Receiving Party shall during the Term and for five (5) years thereafter, keep in confidence and trust all of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information received by it, provided any confidentiality obligations regarding trade secret shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement until such time the information no longer qualifies as trade secret under applicable law. The Receiving Party shall not use the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party other than as necessary to fulfill the Receiving Party’s obligations or to exercise the Receiving Party’s rights under this Agreement. Each Party agrees to secure and protect the other Party’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care and in a manner consistent with the main up tenance of such Party’s own Confidential Information (but in no event less than reasonable level of care), and to take appropriate action by instruction or agreement with its employees, agents, or Users who are permitted access to the other Party’s Confidential Information to satisfy its obligations under this Section. The Receiving Party shall not disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to any Person other than its officers, employees and agents who need access to such Confidential Information in order to effect the intent of this Agreement and who are subject to confidentiality obligations at least as stringent as the obligations set forth in this Agreement. Customer warrants that each of its Users is bound by terms and conditions at least as restrictive as those terms and conditions applicable to Customer under this Agreement and Customer shall be fully liable for any breach of this Agreement by its Users.
7.2 Exclusions from Non-Disclosure. A disclosure by the Receiving Party of any of the Confidential Information (1) in response to a valid subpoena or order by a court or other governmental body; or (2) as otherwise required by law shall not be considered to be a breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party; provided, however, that to the extent allowed under the applicable laws, the Receiving Party shall provide prompt prior written notice thereof to the Disclosing Party to enable the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise to prevent the disclosure.
7.3 Injunctive Relief. The Parties agree that any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information may cause immediate and irreparable injury to the Disclosing Party and that, in the event of such breach, the Receiving Party will be entitled, in addition to any other available remedies, to seek immediate injunctive and other equitable relief, without bond and without the necessity of showing actual monetary damages.

Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt-out of this Provision (as explained below), which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.
Please read this Provision carefully. It provides that all Disputes between you and Arize shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into these Terms constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow these Terms and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).
For the purpose of this Provision, “Arize” means Arize AI, Inc. and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Arize regarding, arising out of or relating to any aspect of your relationship with Arize, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable cause of action or claim for relief, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as Arize’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.
ARIZE AND CUSTOMER EACH AGREES THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.
Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution
For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give Arize an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to Arize AI, Inc., 6114 La Salle Ave #607, Oakland, CA 94611 (“Notice Address”). That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If Arize does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out
Notwithstanding the above, you or Arize may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THESE TERMS (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Provision by mailing written notification to Notice Address. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Arize through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Provision will have no adverse effect on your relationship with Arize. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.
If this Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either you or Arize may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration only, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration or a consolidated or representative action or arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Provision.
For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action or representative action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.
Because the Application and these Terms concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.
Arbitration Award – The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party or if required by applicable law. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA or other applicable law, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
Location of Arbitration – You or Arize may initiate arbitration in either San Francisco, CA or the federal judicial district that includes your billing address.
Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs – Arize will pay all arbitration filing fees and AAA or JAMS hearing fees and any arbitrator’s hearing fees, costs and expenses upon your written request to the arbitrator given at or before the first evidentiary hearing in the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with Arize as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver
Except as otherwise provided in this Provision, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action, representative action, or private attorney general action) unless both you and Arize specifically agree to do so in writing following initiation of the arbitration. If you choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of the Arbitration Provision, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other user of the Application can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
You understand and agree that by entering into these Terms you and Arize are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Provision, you and Arize might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.
If any clause within this Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
This Provision shall survive the termination of your service with Arize or its affiliates. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if Arize makes any change to this Provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change and require Arize to adhere to the present language in this Provision if a dispute between us arises
