Master Subscription Agreement
Version Number: 2.0.0 Effective Date: May 11th 2023
This Master Subscription Agreement (as amended from time to time in accordance with clause 17) (“MSA”) and the Order Form governs Trelica’s provision of the Services, the Documentation, and any Professional Services to the Customer, as set forth in an applicable Order Form executed between Trelica Limited (“Trelica”) and the entity identified as the customer in any Order Form (the “Customer”) (each a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”).
By executing or signifying acceptance of an Order Form (whether electronically, or physically) that incorporates this MSA by reference, the Customer agrees to the terms of this MSA (as incorporated by reference in the Order Form). If the individual executing or signifying acceptance of the Order Form for the Customer is executing or signifying acceptance on behalf of a company or other legal entity, such individual represents that they have the authority to bind such company or legal entity.
2.1 Subject to the Customer purchasing or, in the case of Trial Subscriptions, being granted the Subscriptions and the Customer’s compliance with the provisions of the Agreement, Trelica grants to the Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable right (without the right to grant sublicenses) to permit the Authorised Users to use the Services and the Documentation during the Subscription Term (and only through https://app.trelica.com/ or https://eu.trelica.com).
2.2 The Customer is prohibited from using the Services to provide any service to any third party.
2.3 The Customer undertakes that it will (a) ensure adherence of all Authorised Users to the Agreement and the Acceptable Use Policy and that the Authorised Users will only use the Services and Documentation in accordance with the Agreement, Documentation and any reasonable Trelica instructions; and (b) will not permit any unauthorised use of or access to the Services.
2.4 Trelica may suspend access to the Services without incurring any resulting obligation or Liability, except to the extent set out in clause 2.6, if we reasonably determine that:
2.4.1 there is a threat or attack on the Services;
2.4.2 the Customer’s or any Authorised User’s use of the Services disrupts or poses a security risk to Trelica, or any other customer or vendor of Trelica;
2.4.3 the Customer, or any Authorised User, is using the Services for fraudulent or illegal activities or Trelica’s provision of the Services to the Customer or any Authorised User is prohibited by applicable law;
2.4.4 the Customer’s, or any Authorised User’s, use of the Services is in breach of any API Provider Terms;
2.4.5 the Customer and/or any Authorised User is in breach of the Agreement; or
2.4.6 any vendor of Trelica has suspended or terminated Trelica’s access to or use of any other third party services or products required to enable Trelica to provide, or the Customer to access the Services.
2.5 Trelica shall use reasonable efforts to provide written notice of any Suspension and to provide updates regarding resumption of access. Access to the Services will resume as soon as reasonably possible after the event giving rise to the Suspension is rectified.
2.6 Where a Suspension of 30 days or less occurs that is not a Customer Caused Suspension, Trelica will pay the Customer Service Credits for the duration of the Suspension. Where a Suspension of more than 30 days occurs that is not a Customer Caused Suspension, Trelica will refund the Customer any fees paid for the suspended Services for the period of the relevant Suspension. Subject to Section 12.2, Trelica will have no Liability except as expressly set out in this Section 2.6 for any Service Credits, damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits), expenses, or any other consequences that the Customer or the Authorised Users may incur as a result of a Suspension. Section 2.4 and this Section 2.6 do not limit any of Trelica’s other rights or remedies, whether at law, in equity, under the Agreement or otherwise arising.
2.7 Trelica reserves the right to charge the Customer, and the Customer agrees to pay, any reasonable costs incurred by Trelica in resuming the provision of access to the Services following a Customer Caused Suspension.
3.1 Trelica may make Beta Services available to the Customer at no charge for trial purposes. Beta Services are not supported and may be subject to supplemental terms. Trelica may discontinue Beta Services at any time and may never make them generally available.
3.2 Beta Services are not considered “Services” under this Agreement; however, all restrictions, Trelica’s reservation of rights and the Customer’s obligations concerning the Service, and use of any Non-Trelica Content and API Services shall apply equally to the Customer’s use of Beta Services.
3.3 Subject to clause 12.2, Trelica will have no Liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with a Beta Service.

4.6 Trelica shall follow its archiving procedures for Customer Data as set out in its Backup Policy.

4.7 Trelica shall not be responsible for:
4.7.1 any loss, destruction, alteration or disclosure of Customer Data caused by any third party (except those third parties sub-contracted by Trelica to perform services related to Customer Data maintenance and backup for which it remains liable subject to the limits and exclusions of liability set out in this MSA); or
4.7.2 any failures or delays in removing, disabling or restricting access to any Customer Data, (unless otherwise provided herein).

The Services may also contain the ability for the Customer to access, utilise and/or make changes to the Services from a third party system or to a third party system from the Service, made available by a third party through an API (“API Services”). API Services exclude any part of the Services that facilitates the connection to an API.

6.2 Trelica will be relieved from any of its obligations under the Agreement to the extent that Trelica’s failure to meet any or any part of its obligations are caused by (i) use of the Services contrary to Trelica’s instructions, or (ii) any API Service.
6.3 Trelica does not warrant that the Customer’s use of the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free and is not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or any other loss or damage resulting from the transfer of data over communications, networks, and facilities, including the internet and any API Services, and the Customer acknowledges that the Services and Documentation may be subject to limitations, delays and other problems inherent in the use of such communications facilities.

7.2 If the Customer becomes aware of any misuse or unauthorised use of the Software, Services or the Documentation, or any security breach in connection with the Agreement that could compromise the security or integrity of the Software, Services or the Documentation or otherwise adversely affect Trelica, the Customer shall, at its expense, immediately notify Trelica and fully co-operate with Trelica to remedy the issue as soon as reasonably practicable.

11.6 In no event shall Trelica, its employees, agents and sub-contractors be liable to the Customer to the extent that the alleged infringement is based on:

This shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this Agreement.
21.1 The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes any prior agreement or arrangement whether written or oral, relating to their subject matter. Nothing in this clause will be interpreted or construed as limiting or excluding the Liability of any person for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
