1.1 License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Bexi hereby grants to You a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, non-assignable and non-sublicensable, limited license (“License”) to use the Service & Platform, and any SaaS upgrades provided to You under this Agreement, solely via the Service & Platform portal on the www.Bexi.io website (“Site”) and solely in accordance with this Agreement.
1.2 Free Trial. Your License may start with a free trial (“Free Trial”). The Free Trial is intended to allow new users to use and evaluate the Service & Platform during the time required to complete 1 designated project (“Project”), in accordance with the terms of this Section 1.2.
- Project. During the Free Trial, We will work with You to determine a Project that will demonstrate our creative services. Whether a Project qualifies for a Free Trial is determined by Bexi at its sole discretion.
- Eligibility. Eligibility is determined by Bexi at its sole discretion and We may limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse. Employees of businesses with an existing or recent Bexi Free Trial or Subscription are not eligible. We may use information such as method of payment, device ID or account email address used with an existing or recent Bexi Subscription to determine eligibility. We reserve the right to revoke the Free Trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that You are not eligible.
- Term. The term of your Free Trial (“Free Trial Term”) shall be between 7 and 30 days from activation, as determined by Bexi. To view the end date of your Free Trial Term, please refer to the confirmation email that was sent to You upon registration.
- Upgrading Your Free Trial. If a Project does not qualify for a Free Trial, You may still commission Us to work on the Project by upgrading your Free Trial to a full Subscription (defined below) prior to termination of your Free Trial. The fees for such upgrade will be reflected in your bill for the first month of your Subscription. See the Plans & Pricing page on the Site for details.
1.6 Payment Methods. To use the Service & Platform You must provide one or more payment methods (“Payment Methods”). You can update your Payment Method(s) at any time by emailing AP@bexi.io. We may also update your Payment Methods using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, You authorize Us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s). You authorize Us to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to Us for payment of your Subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and You do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have exhausted our Collection Rights. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge You certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Consult your Payment Method service provider for details.
1.7 Subscription and Fees. You understand and acknowledge that to use the Service & Platform (apart from as set forth in Section 1.2) You are required to purchase a subscription (“Subscription”). Details regarding the three Subscription levels (Basic Tier, Pro Tier, Business Tier), their various features, capabilities, billing choices (in general, billing will be monthly, semi-annually or annually), and rates, are delineated on the Plans & Pricing page of the Site, the terms of which are incorporated into this Agreement. As special incentive, payment for the 12 month term up-front receives 1 month credit towards the total fee. Your status as a licensee of the Service & Platform is dependent upon keeping your Subscription current and paid-up at all times, and You understand and acknowledge that Bexi shall have the ongoing right to suspend or terminate the License if You do not comply with the specified Subscription payment terms.
1.8 Upgrading Your Subscription. You may upgrade your Subscription at any time, and the fees for such upgrade will be reflected in your bill for the subsequent month of your Subscription. See the Plans & Pricing page on the Site for details.
1.9 Downgrading Your Subscription. Only one downgrade is allowed per year of your Subscription. Downgrades to Subscriptions are allowable only after the then-current Initial Term or Renewal Term, and shall become effective upon the renewal following the requested downgrade. See the Plans & Pricing page on the Site for details.

8.1 Your Indemnification Obligation. You shall indemnify and hold harmless Bexi, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and representatives from, and, at your expense, shall defend Bexi against, any loss, damage or expense (including reasonable and directly related legal costs) that Bexi incurs or becomes liable for as a result of any breach by You of any of the terms of this Agreement; any negligent, reckless or willful act or omission by You or your agents or others for whom You are responsible; any failure by You to comply with applicable laws in performing under this Agreement; any misuse by You of the Service & Platform; or, any claim made against Bexi by any third party for which Bexi is not liable under this Agreement, and which arises as a consequence of your use of the Service & Platform. You shall reimburse Bexi for its expenses under this Section as they are incurred. Bexi shall have the right, at its own expense, to participate in the defense of any claim, action or proceeding against which it is indemnified hereunder. You, in the defense of any such claim, action, or proceeding arising under this Section shall not, except with the written consent of Bexi obtained in advance, enter into any settlement which adversely affects Bexi’s rights or which does not include, as an unconditional term, a release granted to Bexi of all liabilities in respect of such claim, action or proceeding.
8.2 Bexi’s Indemnification Obligation. Bexi shall indemnify, defend and hold You harmless against any claim or action brought by a third party against You to the extent based upon any claim that the Service & Platform infringes the intellectual property rights of such third party. You shall promptly notify Bexi in writing of any such claim, give Bexi full authority and control of the settlement and defense of the claim, and fully cooperate with Bexi in the defense of such claim. Bexi shall have no obligation to You under this Section 8.2 for any claim that arises from: (a) any modification to the Service & Platform made by anyone other than Bexi; (b) any use by You of the Service & Platform other than as intended or specified in this Agreement or in any documentation provided to You by Bexi; or (c) your use of prior versions of the Service & Platform after an update has been provided by Bexi to You. If a claim under this Section 8.2 arises, or in Bexi’s opinion is likely to arise, Bexi may at its own expense obtain for You the right to continue using the Service & Platform, may modify the Service & Platform to make it non-infringing, or may substitute other SaaS software of similar capability and functionality. If none of the foregoing options is reasonably available to Bexi, Bexi may terminate the License and refund to You the License fees paid, less the fees for your use of the Service & Platform prior to such termination. THIS SECTION 8.2 STATES THE ENTIRE INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATION OF BEXI AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT OR PROPRIETARY RIGHTS VIOLATIONS BROUGHT AGAINST YOU AND FOR WHICH YOU MAY SEEK INDEMNIFICATION.
Disclaimer. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, BEXI AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE SERVICE & PLATFORM AND ANY DOCUMENTATION AND/OR UPDATES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” BEXI DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE & PLATFORM OR THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SERVICE & PLATFORM WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, ACHIEVE YOUR OPTIMUM DESIRED RESULT, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, OR BE ERROR FREE.
Limitations of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL BEXI OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR LOSS OR INACCURACY OF INFORMATION, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, EVEN IF THE CLAIM WAS REASONABLY FORESEEABLE OR IF BEXI WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY. IN NO EVENT WILL BEXI BE LIABLE FOR ANY ACTION WHICH YOU TAKE OR FAIL TO TAKE IN REGARD TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE & PLATFORM. IN NO EVENT WILL BEXI’S OR ITS LICENSORS’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE SERVICE & PLATFORM OR OTHERWISE ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU IN THE PRECEDING 12 MONTHS FOR THE LICENSE GRANTED HEREUNDER. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so these limitations may not apply to You. The foregoing provisions shall be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
Consent to Promotional Activities. As a licensee of the Service & Platform, You consent to Bexi’s use of your name and any publicly available information about your use of the Service & Platform in Bexi’s client lists, press releases, advertising, and other promotional materials.
Miscellaneous General Provisions.
12.1 If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make it enforceable to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
12.2 This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the United States and of the state of California without reference to its conflict of law principles. You and Bexi agree to submit to the exclusive and personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the federal Northern District of California. You irrevocably waive all immunity from jurisdiction, attachment and execution, whether on the basis of sovereignty or otherwise, to which You might otherwise be entitled in any legal action or proceeding in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction, including such courts located in the State of California, arising out of this Agreement. In the event of any action to enforce the terms of this Agreement, the prevailing party in such action shall be entitled to such party’s reasonable costs and expenses of enforcement including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees.
12.3 A waiver, by a party, of any default by the other party does not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.
12.4 You may not assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, without Bexi’s written consent obtained in advance, and any such unconsented attempt to assign rights or obligations shall be void.
12.5 You acknowledge and agree that a material breach of this Agreement adversely affecting Bexi’s proprietary rights would cause irreparable harm to Bexi for which a remedy at law would be inadequate, and therefore that, without having to post a bond in advance, Bexi shall be entitled to apply to any court having jurisdiction over You to obtain injunctive relief in addition to any remedies Bexi may have under this Agreement or at law.
12.6 This Agreement is the complete agreement between You and Bexi concerning the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any and all prior agreements and representations between Bexi and You and relating to the same subject matter.
