In the event that Hiber accepts post-pay billing in a Quote, and for all recurring payment Customers, Hiber may perform appropriate credit checks and other verification on the Customer.
d. Invoicing and Invoicing Disputes. For any invoices sent by Hiber to Customer, payment by Customer shall be received by Hiber within thirty (30) days after Customer’s receipt of the invoice. Past due invoices shall accrue interest, as a penalty, at the rate of one and one-half percent (1 ½ %) per month or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is less.

IN NO EVENT SHALL HIBER’S SERVICES BE USED IN ANY APPLICATION WHERE THE SAFETY OF HUMAN LIFE OR OTHER CRITICAL REQUIREMENT DEPENDS UPON THE USE OF THE APPLICATION IN QUESTION, AND HIBER EXPLICITLY DISAVOWS ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY USE OF HIBER’S SERVICES IN ANY SUCH APPLICATION. IN NO EVENT SHALL HIBER’S SERVICES BE UTILIZED IN ANY APPLICATION WHERE A FAILURE IN ANY SENSOR OR ASSET MONITORED BY HIBER COULD REASONABLY BE ANTICIPATED TO LEAD TO ANY LOSS OR INJURY TO LIFE OR TO SIGNIFICANT PROPERTY LOSS.
c. Mission Control. Hiber will provide to each Customer or End User, as appropriate, access to Mission Control for the purpose of allowing the Customer to manage the Services provided by Hiber.
d. Service Offerings. Mission Control permits the Customer, when activating a Subscription, to select the type of Service offering desired.

f. Hiber will provide a specific availability standard for Services provided by Hiberband, which will be specified in the current relevant product and Service data sheets, Customer’s Mission Control account, in the Quote provided by Hiber, or elsewhere as agreed with Customer. This minimum Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) will be based on a number of applicable metrics and will be a measurement of (i) the total number of Data Packages delivered via Hiberband and available at the Customer portal in a calendar month divided by (ii) the total number of Data Packages sent by all of the End User Assets in the Customer’s CN Fleet during that month. Hiber’s liability in connection with an SLA below the specified level for a given month will be included in the Customer’s Mission Control account or in a customer Quote for Service. In all cases, the SLA shall exclude any Hiberband Service interruptions caused by a Force Majeure event as described in Article 10 and shall also exclude delivery failures caused by any fault or anomaly in the CN, including but not limited to improperly installed or aligned antennas.
g. Service Updates. Customer agrees to allow all updates to the Hiberband Services and Equipment that are made available to Customer by Hiber. Firmware updates, software patches, and other types of updates will be distributed by Hiber from time to time, and Customer shall take all actions as are necessary to allow all such updates to be implemented. Hiber shall bear no responsibility for any Service or Equipment failures or deficiencies to the extent caused by Customer’s failure to comply with this Article 7(g).
h. The provision of all Services by Hiber is subject to the availability of capacity on Hiberband. Services may be temporarily unavailable or limited because of capacity limitations, equipment failure, modifications, upgrades, repairs or similar activities.

No class or representative or other aggregate litigation theory of liability or prayer for relief may be maintained in any arbitration held under these Terms. Any question regarding the enforceability or interpretation of this Article 11(c) shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and not the arbitrator.

All notices and communications permitted or required (“Notices”) shall be in writing in the English language and shall be sent by facsimile, overnight courier, or certified mail, as appropriate in light of the subject matter of the Notice. All notices to Hiber shall be sent to the following: Hiber B.V. Attn: Legal Department Moermanskkade 600 1013 BC Amsterdam, The Netherlands 14. Severability. If any provision of these Terms is declared invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court or regulatory agency of competent jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire understanding between Hiber and Customer as to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements, discussion, representations, and understandings, written or oral, between Hiber and Customer with respect to such subject matter.
