b. If a Product is configured to store Backedup Data in the United States and it is used to process personal information of California consumers, under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended from time to time, and the final regulations thereunder (collectively the “CCPA”), Backupify is a “service provider” with respect to the personal information of California consumers it processes.

4. RESTRICTIONS ON PRODUCT ACCESS AND USE

If we reasonably believe any Product use or Backedup Data: (i) violates any of the restrictions in the foregoing sections; (ii) may disrupt or threaten the operation or security of any computer, network, system or the Products; or (iii) may otherwise subject us to liability, we reserve the right to refuse or disable access to the Product or Backedup Data. We may also take such action pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and/or as required to comply with Applicable Law. We will use reasonable efforts to contact an Administrator prior to taking such action. However, we may restrict access to any Product or Backedup Data without prior notice as necessary to comply with Applicable Law or to protect against damage or security threats. If we take any such action without prior notice, we will later provide notice to an Administrator, unless prohibited by Applicable Law.
5. BACKEDUP DATA
5.1. Customer represents and warrants it has all rights (including from Backedup Sites and Users) as necessary to permit access, copying and use of Backedup Data with the Product. Customer is responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of the Backedup Data, and the means by which Customer acquired rights to the Backedup Data for use with the Product. For purposes of this Agreement, Backedup Data is the property of Customer, not any User, and we are under no obligation to inform Users that Customer controls such information with us.
5.3. Customer retains all its right, title and interest in and to the Backedup Data, and we neither own nor acquire rights in the Backedup Data other than the rights expressly granted under this Agreement.

We use the same safeguards for all Backedup Data, regardless of its nature or contents. We are a processor and not a controller of all Backedup Data.
5.5. Customer must maintain authorization and access to the Backedup Sites so that we are regularly able to access Backedup Data for purposes of providing the Product. Customer agrees and acknowledges that Backedup Data may not be available or restorable a) if Customer changes such access authority or otherwise restricts our access to such Backedup Site; b) due to unavailability of the Backedup Site; c) with respect to modifications to the Backedup Data that are not captured in the backup frequency or retention schedule for the Product.
5.6. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing in a separate Business Associate Agreement, You agree that Backedup Data will not contain Protected Health Information and Your use of a Product will not otherwise make us a Business Associate of Customer or any Administrator. You must request that we enter into a valid Business Associate Agreement with the appropriate party and ensure such agreement is in place prior to the transfer of any Backedup Data that requires a Business Associate Agreement. The terms “Protected Health Information” “Business Associate” and “Business Associate Agreement” will have the same meanings as set forth in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), as amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH Act), and such regulations as may be further amended from time to time (collectively, the HIPAA Standards).

By providing us with a Payment Method, You authorize us to automatically charge that Payment Method, or any updated Payment Method provided by You, for all charges and fees incurred in connection with the Product You order. We reserve the right to change our approved Payment Methods at any time and will use reasonable commercial efforts to alert You to any such changes.
7.7. All amounts payable by You will be made without setoff, deduction or withholding. We may charge interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law) on late payments. If we are unable to collect any amount owed, we may take any other steps deemed necessary to collect such fees, and You will be responsible for all our incurred costs such as collection fees, court costs and attorneys’ fees. Furthermore, in the event of non-payment, following notice of such non-payment, we may suspend or terminate access to and use of a Product until payment is made in full.
