Pricing: The pricing for each of the three Services Level Packages is listed at: https://easylive.io/en/pricing/. Easy Live reserves the right to modify its pricing terms at any time, with notice to and prior acceptance of the Customer as a condition of the effectiveness of any such changes.
Easy Live Standard, Silver, Gold and Platinum Support Packages: For the Customer who subscribes to the Easy Live Standard, Silver, Gold and Platinum support packages, you are required to pay your monthly or annual subscription fees at the beginning of each negotiated billing period immediately after submitting your online Order Form or otherwise negotiated with your easylive.io sales representative. We will process your payment method using the information you provided in the Order Form once we have received your authorization. We will notify you by emailing you prior to the expiration of your current subscription. If you don’t choose to cancel your subscription before the expiration of your current subscription, your subscription will be automatically renewed for another identical period of time, based on your initial subscription. In either such case of automatic renewal, we will charge your payment method for the renewal subscription fee using the payment information you provided in your last Order Form. It is your responsibility to notify us of any change to such payment information. If you do not wish to use the same payment method or information for making the payment for your renewal, you shall contact us and make the change. EASY LIVE MAY NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY DISRUPTION IN THE SUPPLY OF THE SERVICES IF THE CUSTOMER FAILS TO NOTIFY IT OF ANY CHANGE PURSUANT TO THE FOREGOING PRIOR TO THE OCCURRENCE THEREOF.
You will not receive any of our Services until you have fully paid your support package fees.
Easy Live Hourly Usage: For the Customer who subscribes to our Service, you will be charged for your Hourly Usage. The billing of the Hourly Usage starts when you are at stage “Testing” and/or “Publishing” in the studio and ends when you come back to the stage “Setting up” (if you were at the stage “Testing”) or by clicking the “end” button if you were at the stage “Publishing”.
You will not receive any of our Services until you have fully paid any existing balance.
Easy Live API, White Labelled and/or Reseller services: For the Customer who subscribes to our API, White labelled and/or Reseller Service, the support packages and hourly usage billing described above remain identical.
- Any event created with the API will have a minimum and mandatory billing equivalent to 10min of usage of the service.
- An event rescheduled to a different date and/or time will be considered as a new event.
- Each project will have a fixed maintenance monthly billing of $1 per month.
Tax: You are responsible for the payment of all applicable taxes in connection to your subscription of our Services; provided, however, that Easy Live reserves the right to collect and pay taxes to the relevant authorities when it, in its sole discretion, believes that applicable law requires it to do so.
Term and Termination: Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, the term of the Agreement shall be one (1) month (for the monthly packages) or one (1) year (for the yearly packages) from the date of the Agreement, and the term shall automatically renew for additional, consecutive one (1) month (for the monthly packages) or one (1) year (for the yearly packages) renewal terms unless and until terminated in accordance with these terms or the terms of the Agreement. The Customer shall receive the right to use the Services upon receipt of payment for a period as set forth in the Agreement, which right shall be automatically renewable for the initial period.
Except as otherwise set forth in the Agreement, either party may terminate the Services by providing written notice to the other party, or by cancelling the subscription in their account, at any time prior to the end of the then-current term or any renewal term period, as the case may be.
Each of the parties will have the option to terminate this Agreement, without being required to indemnify the other party and without prejudice to any other actions against it, if the other party commits a material breach or repeated breaches of its obligations under this Agreement and if it remains uncured for fifteen (15) calendar days after the defaulting party receives a letter from the aggrieved party notifying it of the breach by registered letter.
The termination will take effect after the expiration of such a cure period.
Effect of Termination: In the event that the Agreement ends, for any reason whatsoever and at any time, including in the case of termination for breach, the Customer agrees to pay all outstanding amounts owed to Easy Live. The license granted to the Customer hereunder shall automatically terminate and the Customer shall no longer be able to use our Services to perform the following: to schedule and start an Event, or to create any other Content thereafter. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Customer may still be able to access its Registered Account and to view its previously created Content after the termination or expiration of the Agreement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, any and all obligations that arose prior to the effective date of termination, including, without limitation, payment obligations as well as any obligations of the parties which would reasonably be deemed to survive termination (including, without limitation, indemnification obligations), shall remain in effect following termination or expiration of this Agreement.
For the avoidance of doubt, Easy Live may continue to make reference to its business relationship with the customer for promotional purposes.
Return and Refunds: Easy Live will not make any refunds at any time for any reason.

Each party shall notify the other in the event of any Force Majeure that affects its ability to perform its obligations hereunder. If a Force Majeure Event lasts for more than three (3) months, the Agreement may be terminated unilaterally by either one of the parties by written notice to the other.
SECTION 9: CONFIDENTIALITY
During the term of the Agreement, and for a period of five (5) years thereafter, the parties agree to hold all confidential information in strict confidence and not to copy, reproduce, sell, transfer, or otherwise dispose of, give, or disclose such confidential information to third parties other than employees, agents, or subcontractors of a party who have a need to know in connection with this Agreement or to use such confidential information for any purposes whatsoever other than the performance of this Agreement. The parties agree to advise and require their respective employees, agents, and subcontractors of their obligations to keep all confidential information confidential.
Confidential information shall mean any information that (i) has been marked “confidential,” or with words of similar meaning, at the time of disclosure by such party; (ii) if disclosed orally or not marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning, was subsequently summarized in writing by the disclosing party and marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning; and (iii) should reasonably be recognized as confidential information of the disclosing party. Confidential information includes, without limitation, information, ideas, and materials of or about Easy Live and/or its affiliates, employees, or customers that are not generally known to the public, including, without limitation, information, ideas, or materials relating to methods or technology, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, copyrights, or any other proprietary or intellectual property rights, products, processes, employees, finances, technology, methods, algorithms, software, code, contacts, clients, customers, strategy, and other business or technical matters. Confidential information does not include any information or documentation that was: (A) already in the possession of the recipient without an obligation of confidentiality; (B) developed independently by the recipient, as demonstrated by the recipient, without violating the disclosing party’s proprietary rights; (C) obtained from a source other than the disclosing party without an obligation of confidentiality; or, (D) publicly available when received, or thereafter became publicly available (other than through any unauthorized disclosure by, through, or on behalf of the recipient).
Each party acknowledges that breach of its obligation of confidentiality may give rise to irreparable injury to the other party, which damage may be inadequately compensable in the form of monetary damages. Accordingly, a party may seek and obtain injunctive relief against the breach or threatened breach of the foregoing undertakings, in addition to any other legal remedies which may be available, to include, in the case of the customer, at the sole election of customer, the immediate termination, without liability to customer, of this Agreement corresponding to the breach or threatened breach.
Upon termination of this Agreement, in whole or in part, each party shall, within five (5) business days from the date of termination, return to the other party any and all confidential information received from the other party, or created or received by a party on behalf of the other party, which are in such party’s possession, custody, or control.
