The right to correct a breach provided for herein shall not apply to the Nondisclosure provisions of these ToS.

6. Limitation of Liability. THIS PARAGRAPH DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY OBLIGATIONS ARISING UNDER THE NONDISCLOSURE SECTION(S) OF THESE ToS (for example, a data breach or any disclosure of confidential information would not be subject to this paragraph). EXCEPT FOR OBLIGATIONS ARISING UNDER THE NONDISCLOSURE PROVISIONS, NEITHER PARTY’S LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SINGLE INCIDENT ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE ToS (WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY) SHALL EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER HEREUNDER IN THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE INCIDENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE FOREGOING SHALL NOT LIMIT CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS FOR SERVICES RENDERED HEREUNDER.

7. Insurance. TokenEx will, at its expense, obtain and maintain insurance of a type and amount as may be reasonable to protect its interests and obligations incident to its performance hereunder.

A certification of such secure deletion/destruction will be provided upon Customer’s request, and at Customer’s expense. Stored data shall be returned to Customer not later than fourteen (14) days following receipt of a written request.

9. Applicable Law. In any dispute arising under these ToS, the laws of the State of Delaware shall govern without regard to the choice of law rules of any jurisdiction, including Delaware.

10. Arbitration. Any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in relation to, the interpretation, performance or breach of these ToS, including, without limitation, the validity, scope and enforceability of these ToS, that is not first resolved by negotiation between the parties, shall be submitted to binding and final arbitration by a single arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or, if applicable, the International Center for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR-AAA”), having experience in data security, and conducted pursuant to the rules of the AAA or ICDR-AAA, as applicable. Any such action or claim must be brought within two (2) years of the date the claim arose. The arbitrator shall be limited solely to awarding remedies that are permitted by these ToS. Notwithstanding any other provision of these ToS, the arbitrator shall award costs to the party that substantially prevails in any arbitration proceeding, including recovery of that party’s reasonable attorney’s fees, the arbitrator’s fees, and all costs of litigation incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. Nothing in this section shall restrict a party’s right to seek injunction or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction prior to initiating arbitration.

11. Nondisclosure. Any information, data, trade secrets, know-how or proprietary information, in any form (as those terms are broadly construed), that the parties hereto exchange, including but not limited to those concerning these ToS, the Services or TokenEx’s Platform, shall be treated as confidential, shall be used only for the purpose of performing their respective obligations hereunder, and shall not be reproduced in whole or in part or disclosed to any other person or entity for any other purposes. All such information shall be returned promptly upon demand of the discloser. The parties shall ensure that no information is shared with any third party except where necessary to perform a party‘s obligations under these ToS and, in such cases, the disclosing party shall obtain from the third party an undertaking not less restrictive than set forth in this Paragraph to preserve confidentiality.

The parties further agree to be responsible for the actions of their employees and any other person provided access to their offices or systems who may have contact with or access to information subject to these ToS, and to monitor those persons such that said information is continuously protected.

It is expressly agreed that a remedy at law for breach of the obligations set forth in this section concerning Nondisclosure is inadequate and that each party shall, in addition to any other remedies permitted by these ToS, be entitled to injunctive relief to prevent the breach, threatened breach, or continued breach thereof.

All rights and obligations contained in these ToS concerning the nondisclosure and protection of proprietary and confidential information shall survive the termination of these ToS.

15. Force Majeure. Either party to these ToS shall be released from liability hereunder for failure to perform any of its obligations hereunder where such failure to perform occurs by reason of any act of God, sabotage, war, strikes, lockouts, terrorism, military operations, national emergency, civil commotion, pandemic, communication systems failures, or the order, requisition, request or recommendation of any governmental agency or acting governmental authority having jurisdiction, or by either party’s compliance therewith, or governmental regulation or priority, or any other cause beyond either party’s reasonable control whether similar or dissimilar to such causes. In the event of any such disaster, TokenEx’s release of liability hereunder is subject to TokenEx’s reasonable execution of its Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plans, provided that any such exercise shall not itself have been rendered impracticable by any such event or its consequences. TokenEx shall be obligated to perform and Customer shall be obligated to pay for only such services actually performed during any of the above-mentioned conditions. If either party is not able to perform its material obligations hereunder within forty-five (45) days after the aforementioned conditions have been resolved or removed, then the other party may immediately terminate these ToS. Such termination, however, shall not affect the rights or obligations of either party that have arisen or accrued prior to such termination.

16. GENERAL PROVISIONS

Export Compliance. The Services, Platform, and derivatives thereof may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions. Customer represents that neither Customer nor any of Customer’s Authorized Users are named on any U.S. government denied-party list. Customer will not permit any User to access or use any Service in a U.S.-embargoed country or region (currently Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria or Crimea) or in violation of any U.S. export law or regulation.

Assignment. Neither party may assign or otherwise transfer their rights or obligations pursuant to these ToS, or any of either party’s rights or obligations hereunder, without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

Severability. In the event that any provision hereof is invalid or unenforceable, such invalid or unenforceable provision shall not invalidate or affect the other provisions of these ToS. The other provisions of these ToS shall remain in effect and be construed as if the invalid or unenforceable provision were not a part hereof, provided that if the invalidation or unenforceability of such provision shall, in the opinion of either party, have a material effect on such party’s rights or obligations hereunder, then these ToS may be terminated by such party upon thirty (30) days’ written notice by such party to the other party.

Termination. These ToS may be terminated by either party, with or without cause, upon providing the other party not less than thirty (30) days prior written notice of any termination, but immediately in the event of a material breach of these ToS, at the option of the non-breaching party. Any breach of the confidentiality provisions of these ToS and/or any separate nondisclosure agreement between the parties shall constitute a material breach of these ToS, entitling the non-breaching party, at its option, to immediately terminate these ToS. These ToS will automatically renew following each contract year. In the event of non-renewal or termination, Customer shall be obligated to pay any and all outstanding charges for Services that have been delivered or invoiced prior to the date of termination.

In the event of a termination of these ToS not for cause or for material breach, TokenEx shall provide Termination Assistance Services. “Termination Assistance Services” means (i) the Services shall be performed, to the extent Customer requests the Services during the Termination Assistance Period, (ii) TokenEx’s cooperation with Customer or another supplier designated by Customer in the transfer of the Services, and (iii) any other services requested by Customer in order to facilitate the transfer of the Services to Customer or another supplier designated by Customer. Except as otherwise set forth herein, the Termination Assistance Services will be provided for a reasonable time (but not to exceed six months), and at the applicable rates set forth in the Order Form or, if the applicable rates are not set forth in the Order Form, then at TokenEx’s rates then in effect for like services immediately prior to the expiration or termination of these ToS.

Entire Agreement. The Order Form and these ToS, together with all documents incorporated by reference, constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior agreements, negotiations, understandings, or other matters, whether oral or written, with respect to the subject matter hereof. These ToS cannot be modified, changed or amended except in writing signed by a duly authorized representative of each party.

Headings. The headings hereof are for convenience of reference only and shall not be considered in the interpretation of these ToS.

(a) TokenEx represents and warrants that it has developed and implemented, and that it maintains, monitors and uses appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security measures, safeguards, procedures and practices to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all Personal Data against a Security Incident.

(b) TokenEx represents and warrants that it shall Process all Personal Data in accordance with all Applicable Laws and reasonable security requirements, policies, procedures and standards designated by CUSTOMER from time to time, including Processing of all Personal Data it receives from CUSTOMER’s United States operations (“Privacy Shield Data”) in accordance with CUSTOMER’s Privacy Shield certification and Swiss-US Privacy Shield certification (collectively “Data Transfer Certifications”), or the GDPR’s Standard Contractual Clauses, as appropriate, and that at all times TokenEx’s protection of such Personal Data will meet or exceed the obligations for protection of such Personal Data set forth in the Privacy Shield principles. In the event new laws or regulations are implemented that require modifications to this Addendum, the parties mutually agree, in good faith, to modify this Addendum, within thirty (30) days of such law(s) or regulation(s) becoming effective. The parties further acknowledge that each is responsible to comply with any new law(s) or regulation(s) and to ensure that its handling of Personal Data is consistent therewith.

TokenEx certifies that it understands the rules, restrictions, requirements and definitions of the CCPA applicable to it as a service provider and agrees to refrain from taking any action that would cause any transfers of personal information to or from TokenEx to qualify as a sale of personal information under the CCPA. TokenEx acknowledges and confirms that it does not receive any personal information from CUSTOMER as consideration for any services or other items provided to CUSTOMER and shall not sell any such personal information.

(c) TokenEx shall ensure that all personnel involved in the processing of Personal Data are informed of the confidential nature of the Personal Data and are subject to contractual obligations of confidentiality (which are at least commensurate with those set out in the Agreement) and shall take reasonable steps to ensure the reliability of such personnel and ensure that they have received appropriate privacy and security training. TokenEx shall ensure that access to the Personal Data is limited to those personnel who need it to perform their duties in order for TokenEx’ to meet its obligations under the Agreement.

(d) TokenEx shall not transfer, disclose, use, transport, store, or in any manner Process, internally or via third parties, the Personal Data across any national borders or permit remote access to the Personal Data by any employee, affiliate, contractor, or other third party, unless such transfer or remote access is specifically permitted in the Processing instructions provided to it by CUSTOMER, or it has the prior written consent of CUSTOMER for such transfer or access. In order to receive Personal Data in the US from countries in the European Union or European Economic Area or Switzerland, TokenEx has been Privacy Shield certified, and if the data is from Switzerland, Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield certified (collectively, the “Data Transfer Programs”). If TokenEx has not certified to the Data Transfer Programs, or if at any time during the course of this Agreement, if a particular Personal Data transfer does not qualify for the Data Transfer Programs, or if for some other reason the Data Transfer Programs are deemed invalid for purposes of a specific Personal Data transfer or for all Personal Data transfers, then the parties agree that for the duration of any such invalidity, the Model Contract Clause Provisions as approved by the EU Commission for Controller to Processor Personal Data transfers (“Controller to Processor Model Clauses”) will be incorporated into this Addendum and this Agreement with respect to all Personal Data transfers from the EU and/or Switzerland, as the case may be, and TokenEx and CUSTOMER hereby agree to immediately complete, sign, and execute the Controller to Processor Model Clauses. In addition, TokenEx agrees to reasonably execute and undertake such other compliance mechanisms as may be required by Applicable Laws in other countries with similar data transfer restrictions. If, in addition to the Data Transfer Programs, the Controller to Processor Model Clauses are deemed invalid for the purpose of a specific Personal Data transfer or for all Personal Data transfers, the parties agree to
work together, and execute necessary documents, in order to determine an appropriate and legal mechanism for the transfer of such Personal Data.

(e) TokenEx shall Process Personal Data solely for the purpose of performing, and only to the extent needed to perform, TokenEx’s obligations under the Agreement or as otherwise authorized in writing by CUSTOMER. If for any reason, TokenEx cannot comply with the obligations of this Addendum, with respect to the Processing of Personal Data, and with the obligations of the Privacy Shield principles or the Standard Contractual Clauses, as applicable, TokenEx shall immediately notify CUSTOMER in writing of such inability to comply.

(f) TokenEx shall not disclose, transfer, transport, or provide access to Personal Data to any third party unless such disclosure is necessary for performance under the Agreement, and provided that such third party is fully bound in a written agreement by obligations at least as restrictive as those contained herein, including those in the Privacy Shield principles or Standard Contractual Clauses, as applicable. TokenEx shall remain responsible to CUSTOMER for all Processing of Personal Data undertaken by such third party and TokenEx shall remain responsible for any harm caused by such third party to the same extent as if TokenEx caused such harm itself, except to the extent TokenEx’s disclosure of Personal Data to such third party is required or otherwise requested by CUSTOMER.

(g) Within thirty (30) days of (i) CUSTOMER’s request, (ii) the date that Personal Data is no longer reasonably necessary for TokenEx’s performance under the Agreement or (iii) termination or expiration of the Agreement, whichever occurs first, TokenEx shall return all Personal Data, including all copies and excerpts thereof, in TokenEx’s possession and/or control (including any Personal Data in the possession of TokenEx’s subcontractors or agents) to CUSTOMER in the original format in which the Personal Data was received (if alternative format is requested by CUSTOMER, it will be at CUSTOMER’S expense), or as requested by CUSTOMER, permanently and securely destroy such Personal Data using industry standard data wiping tools acceptable to CUSTOMER. TokenEx shall certify to CUSTOMER in writing that TokenEx has fully complied with the foregoing obligations.

(d) At no cost to CUSTOMER, TokenEx will cure any Security Incident to any Information System which TokenEx develops and/or hosts for CUSTOMER, consistent with legal requirements and any forensic services that may require ensuring that evidence is properly preserved.

In connection therewith, CUSTOMER may require formal penetration testing, security logs or other information security tests. TokenEx shall timely comply with all reasonable recommendations that result from such inspections, audits and tests. Any such audit will be conducted at CUSTOMER’s sole expense, except where the audit reveals TokenEx’s material noncompliance with this Addendum, in which case the reasonable cost of the audit will be borne by TokenEx.

(b) In the event any CUSTOMER inspection or audit reveals TokenEx’s noncompliance with this Addendum, or in the event CUSTOMER reasonably suspects any such noncompliance, TokenEx shall perform, upon CUSTOMER’s request and at TokenEx’s expense, a security audit by an independent third party approved by CUSTOMER in writing, to confirm TokenEx’s compliance hereunder. The audit results, along with TokenEx’s written plan for addressing or resolving any noncompliance or deficiencies identified by such audit, shall be provided to CUSTOMER within thirty (30) days of TokenEx’s receipt of such audit results, subject to reasonable confidentiality protections.

Service Level Addendum

This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) outlines TokenEx’s commitments for the end-to-end uptime and critical security incident notifications for TokenEx’s Services. It also sets forth the respective remedies available if TokenEx fails to meet these commitments. This SLA and the credits provided below are TokenEx’s only obligation and Customer’s only remedy for TokenEx’s failure to meet these commitments. Capitalized terms not defined herein will have the same meaning as in the applicable Terms of Service between Customer and TokenEx.

1. Uptime Guarantee

A. TokenEx guarantees end-to-end uptime availability of 99.99% for our services.

B. The following are excluded from this guarantee:

• Routing anomalies, asymmetries, inconsistencies and failures of the Internet outside of TokenEx’s control;

• Maintenance events as defined in Section C below;

• Customer requested or instructed actions, whether performed by the Customer, TokenEx, or a third party, that impacts the availability of Services.

TokenEx proactively monitors infrastructure uptime. The results of these monitoring systems are the exclusive determination of the Services uptime. Not more than once a month and upon request via the Customer Portal, TokenEx will provide Customer with these results.

C. Maintenance Exceptions

Availability. “Availability” means the time in which the Customer is able to connect to and transfer data with the System on a monthly basis, excluding Scheduled Maintenance.

Scheduled Maintenance. “Scheduled Maintenance” means a period for which the Services are scheduled to be unavailable for use by Customer in order to perform preventive maintenance, install upgrades or perform similar work, and for which Customer has been given prior notice of such period. TokenEx shall notify Customer of any scheduled maintenance at least seven days prior to such period.

2. Service Availability and Discounts.

In the event that TokenEx does not meet the applicable Availability levels set forth below, upon Customer’s request through the Customer Portal, TokenEx shall provide the discount set out below to Customer’s next monthly invoice or obligation for the applicable System(s) as sole remedy for not meeting the Availability level. The discount levels do not aggregate. Customer shall not receive a discount if an interruption is (a) caused by Scheduled Maintenance (b) due to any cause beyond TokenEx’s reasonable control, or (c) caused by Customer’s inability to access the System as a result of the failure of Customer’s own systems or providers.

Percent Monthly Discount

> 5 minutes - 45 minutes

10.0%

> 45minutes - 7 hours

25.0%

> 7 hours

The payment of service credits will be based solely on the Fees for the Services for the month in which the claim arises and only for the impacted account(s) for the Services. TokenEx will only apply the Service Credits against future Services payments otherwise payable to the Customer. The payment for any single failure shall not exceed fifty percent (50.0%) of the monthly service Fees for the impacted components of the Services. The total cumulative Service Credits claimed by Customer in any given month shall not exceed the amount owed by the Customer for the Services that month.

All Service credit claims should be communicated via a ticket in the Customer Portal within seven (7) calendar days of the incident giving rise to the claim. The notification ticket must express the desire to claim a service credit and state that Customer was affected by the downtime. After notification, Customer has thirty (30) days to deliver any relevant information about the downtime that TokenEx requests. The ticket detailing the impact of the downtime may include any relevant information, including, but not limited to: the impacted server(s), the date, time, and full description of the incident and any logs (if applicable). Failure to provide notification via the portal will disqualify the Customer from receiving a Service credit.

No Service Credits will be given for service interruptions : (i) caused by the action or failure to act by Customer, Customer’s personnel, or any of Customer’s users, (ii) due to failure of any equipment or software provided by the Customer, (iii) which are the result of Scheduled Maintenance, (iv) due to a force majeure event, (v) for which Customer is entitled to a Service Credit for the same or contemporaneous service commitment failure, or (vi) for downtime or other problems that may result from the Customer’s use of the Beta Services or, (vii) to the extent TokenEx offers Customer a Self-Service option and that results from the Customer’s use of a Self-Service option.

3. Problem Response and Escalation.

Any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in relation to, the interpretation, performance or breach of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the validity, scope and enforceability of this Agreement, that is not first resolved by negotiation between the parties, shall be submitted to binding and final arbitration by a single arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or, if applicable, the International Center for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR-AAA”), having experience in data security, and conducted pursuant to the rules of the AAA or ICDR-AAA, as applicable. Any such action or claim must be brought within two (2) years of the date the claim arose. The arbitrator shall be limited solely to awarding remedies that are permitted by this Agreement. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the arbitrator shall award costs to the party that substantially prevails in any arbitration proceeding, including recovery of that party’s reasonable attorney’s fees, the arbitrator’s fees, and all costs of litigation incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. Nothing in this section shall restrict a party’s right to seek injunction or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction prior to initiating arbitration.

21. Nondisclosure. Any information, trade secrets, know-how or proprietary information, in any form, that the parties hereto exchange shall be treated as confidential, shall be used only for the purpose of performing their respective obligations hereunder, and shall not be reproduced in whole or in part or disclosed to any other person or entity for any other purposes. All such information shall be returned promptly upon demand of the discloser. The parties shall ensure that no information is shared with any third party except where necessary to perform a party‘s obligations under this Agreement and, in such cases, the disclosing party shall obtain from the third party an undertaking not less restrictive than set forth in this paragraph to preserve confidentiality.

The parties further agree to be responsible for the actions of their employees and any other person provided access to their offices or systems who may have contact with or access to information subject to this Agreement, and to monitor those persons such that said information is continuously protected.

It is expressly agreed that a remedy at law for breach of the obligations set forth in this section concerning Nondisclosure is inadequate and that each party shall, in addition to any other remedies permitted by this Agreement, be entitled to injunctive relief to prevent the breach, threatened breach, or continued breach thereof.

All rights and obligations contained in this Agreement concerning the nondisclosure and protection of proprietary and confidential information shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

26. Force Majeure.

27. GENERAL PROVISIONS

Export Compliance. The Services, Platform, and derivatives thereof may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions.

The other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect and be construed as if the invalid or unenforceable provision were not a part hereof, provided that if the invalidation or unenforceability of such provision shall, in the opinion of either party, have a material effect on such party’s rights or obligations hereunder, then this Agreement may be terminated by such party upon thirty (30) days’ written notice by such party to the other party.

WHEREAS, pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (“HITECH”), the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (“HHS”) promulgated the Privacy Standards, the security standards at 45 C.F.R. Parts 160 and 164, Subparts A and C (the “Security Standards”), and the breach notification standards at 45 C.F.R. Part 164, Subpart D (the “Breach Notification Standards”) requiring certain individuals and entities subject to these standards to protect the privacy and security of certain individually identifiable health information including electronic individually identifiable health information;

WHEREAS, the Parties wish to comply with Privacy Standards, Security Standards, and Breach Notification Standards as may be revised or amended by HHS from time to time;

WHEREAS, in connection with Subcontractor’s performance under its agreement(s) and/or other documented arrangements between Subcontractor and TokenEx, whether in effect as of the Effective Date or which become effective at any time during the term of this Agreement (collectively “Business Arrangements”), Subcontractor may provide services for or on behalf of TokenEx that requires Subcontractor to use, disclose, receive, access, create, maintain and/or transmit health information that is protected by state and/or federal law; and

WHEREAS, Subcontractor and TokenEx desire that Subcontractor obtain access to PHI and EPHI in accordance with the terms specified herein;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises set forth in this Agreement and the Business Arrangements, and other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency and receipt of which are hereby severally acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

1. Business Associate Obligations.

In accordance with this Agreement and the Business Arrangements, Subcontractor may use, disclose, access, create, maintain, transmit and/or receive on behalf of  TokenEx health information that is protected under applicable state and/or federal law, including without limitation, PHI and EPHI.  Subcontractor acknowledges and agrees it meets the definition of a “business associate” at 45 C.F.R. §160.103.  All capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement or in the Text Box shall have the meanings set forth in the Privacy Standards, Security Standards, the Breach Notification Standards, HIPAA or the HITECH Act, as applicable and as may be amended from time to time (collectively referred to hereinafter as the “Confidentiality Requirements”).  PHI shall mean any and all Protected Health Information, including Electronic Protected Health Information that Subcontractor (or its Agents, as defined in Section 3.2) uses, discloses, accesses, creates, maintains, transmits and/or receives for or on behalf of TokenEx pursuant to the Business Arrangements. “EPHI” shall mean PHI transmitted or maintained in electronic media. The Parties hereby acknowledge that the definition of PHI includes “Genetic Information” as set forth at 45 C.F.R. §160.103.  To the extent the Subcontractor is to carry out an obligation of TokenEx under the Confidentiality Requirements, the Subcontractor shall comply with the provision(s) of the Confidentiality Requirements that would apply to TokenEx (as applicable) in the performance of such obligation(s).

2. Use of PHI.

Except as otherwise Required By Law, Subcontractor shall use PHI in compliance with this Agreement and 45 C.F.R. §164.504(e).  Subcontractor agrees not to use (or permit the use) of PHI in a manner that would violate the Confidentiality Requirements if the PHI were used by TokenEx in the same manner.  Furthermore, Subcontractor shall use PHI:  (i) solely for the benefit of TokenEx and only for the purpose of performing services for or on behalf of  TokenEx as such services are defined in the Business Arrangements; and (ii) as necessary for the proper management and administration of Subcontractor or to carry out its legal responsibilities; provided that such uses are permitted under federal and applicable state law.   TokenEx shall retain all rights in the PHI not granted herein.  Except as necessary to perform services  TokenEx under the Business Arrangements, Subcontractor may not de-identify PHI or other identifiable data without the express written authorization of  TokenEx.  All de-identification of PHI must be performed in accordance with the Confidentiality Requirements, specifically, 45 C.F.R. §164.514(b).

3. Disclosure of PHI.

3.1 Subject to any limitations in this Agreement, Subcontractor may disclose PHI to any third party as necessary to perform its obligations under the Business Arrangements and as permitted or required by applicable law. Subcontractor agrees not to disclose (or permit the disclosure of) PHI in a manner that would violate the Confidentiality Requirements if the PHI was disclosed by TokenEx in the same manner. Further, Subcontractor may disclose PHI for the proper management and administration of Subcontractor; provided that: (i) such disclosures are required by law; or (ii) Subcontractor: (a) obtains reasonable assurances from any third party to whom the PHI is disclosed that the PHI will be held confidential and used and disclosed only as required by law or for the purpose for which it was disclosed to the third party; and (b) requires the third party to agree to immediately notify Subcontractor of any instances of which it is aware that PHI is being used or disclosed for a purpose that is not otherwise provided for in this Agreement or for a purpose not expressly permitted by the Confidentiality Requirements.  Subcontractor shall report to TokenEx any use or disclosure of PHI not permitted by this Agreement of which it becomes aware.  Such report shall be made within five (5) business days of Subcontractor becoming aware of such use or disclosure and, if known to Subcontractor, Subcontractor shall identify in writing for TokenEx the PHI impacted by and scope of impact of such use or disclosure. 

3.2 If Subcontractor uses or contracts with any agent, including a subcontractor (collectively, “Vendor Subcontractors”) that uses, discloses, creates, accesses, receives, maintains or transmits PHI on behalf of the Subcontractor, Subcontractor shall require its Vendor Subcontractors to agree in writing to the same restrictions and conditions that apply to Subcontractor under this Agreement, including but not limited to 45 C.F.R. §§164.314, 164.410, 164.502 and 164.504(e). In addition to Subcontractor’s obligations under Section 9, Subcontractor agrees to mitigate, to the extent practical and unless otherwise requested by TokenEx in writing, any harmful effect that is known to Subcontractor and is the result of a use or disclosure of PHI by Subcontractor or any of its Vendor Subcontractors in violation of this Agreement.  Additionally, Subcontractor shall ensure that all disclosures of PHI by Subcontractor and its Vendor Subcontractors comply with the principle of “minimum necessary use and disclosure,” (i.e., in accordance with 45 C.F.R. §164.502(b), only the minimum PHI that is necessary to accomplish the intended purpose may be disclosed).

4. Individual Rights Regarding Designated Record Sets.

If Subcontractor maintains a Designated Record Set on behalf of TokenEx, Subcontractor shall:  (i) provide access to and permit inspection and copying of PHI by TokenEx, as required under 45 C.F.R. §164.524, as it may be amended from time to time; and (ii) amend PHI maintained by Subcontractor as requested by TokenEx.  Subcontractor shall respond to any request from TokenEx for access by an Individual within five (5) business days of such request and shall make any amendment requested by TokenEx within ten (10) business days of such request.  Any information requested under this Section 4 shall be provided in the form or format requested, if it is readily producible in such form or format.  Subcontractor may charge a reasonable fee based upon Subcontractor’s labor costs in responding to a request for electronic information (or a cost-based fee for the production of non-electronic media copies).  Subcontractor shall notify TokenEx within five (5) business days of receipt of any request for access or amendment by an Individual.  TokenEx, not Subcontractor, shall determine whether to grant or deny any access to or amendment of PHI requested by an Individual, provided that nothing in this Agreement shall restrict Subcontractor’s ability to provide access or a copy of PHI as provided for by Section 13405(e) of HITECH, as amended, or any regulations promulgated pursuant to such provision in compliance with the Confidentiality Requirements.  Subcontractor shall have a process in place for receiving requests for amendments and for appending such requests to the Designated Record Set when requested by TokenEx.

5. Accounting of Disclosures.

Subcontractor shall make available, within twenty (20) business days of a request by TokenEx for information required for an accounting of disclosures of PHI in accordance with 45 C.F.R. §164.528 (or such shorter time as may be required by state or federal law).  Such accounting must be provided without cost if it is the first accounting requested within any twelve (12) month period.  For subsequent accountings within the same twelve (12) month period, Subcontractor may charge a reasonable fee based upon Subcontractor’s labor costs in responding to a request for electronic information (or a cost-based fee for the production of non-electronic media copies) only after Subcontractor informs TokenEx and TokenEx informs the Individual in advance of the fee, and the Individual is afforded an opportunity to withdraw or modify the request.  Such accounting obligations shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement and with respect to any disclosure, whether on or before the termination of this Agreement, shall continue for a minimum of seven (7) years following the date of such disclosure.

6. Withdrawal of Authorization.

If the use or disclosure of PHI under this Agreement is based upon an Individual’s specific authorization regarding the use of his or her PHI, and: (i) the Individual revokes such authorization in writing; (ii) the effective date of such authorization has expired; or (iii) the authorization is found to be defective in any manner that renders it invalid for whatever reason, then Subcontractor agrees, if it has received notice from TokenEx regarding such revocation or invalidity, to cease the use and disclosure of any such Individual’s PHI except to the extent Subcontractor has relied on such use or disclosure, or where an exception under the Confidentiality Requirements expressly applies.

7. Records and Audit.

Subcontractor shall make available to HHS or its agents its internal practices, books, and records reasonably relating to the compliance of Subcontractor and TokenEx with the Confidentiality Requirements, such internal practices, books and records to be provided in the time and manner designated by HHS or its agents.  Except to the extent prohibited by law, Subcontractor agrees to notify TokenEx immediately upon receipt by Subcontractor of any and all requests by or on behalf of any and all federal, state, and local government authorities served upon Subcontractor requesting PHI or investigating compliance with the Confidentiality Requirements.

8. Implementation of Security Standards; Notice of Security Incidents.

Subcontractor will comply with the Security Standards and, by way of example and not limitation, use appropriate safeguards to prevent the use or disclosure of PHI other than as expressly permitted under this Agreement.  In accordance with the Security Standards, Subcontractor will implement administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the PHI that it uses, discloses, accesses, creates, receives, maintains or transmits.  To the extent feasible, Subcontractor will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the technology safeguards used by Subcontractor to secure PHI will render such PHI unusable, unreadable and indecipherable to individuals unauthorized to acquire or otherwise have access to such PHI in accordance with HHS Guidance published at 74 Federal Register 19006 (April 17, 2009) or such later regulations or guidance promulgated by HHS or issued by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (“NIST”) concerning the protection of identifiable data such as PHI.  Subcontractor will promptly report to TokenEx any Security Incident of which it becomes aware; provided, however, that TokenEx acknowledges and shall be deemed to have received notice from Subcontractor that there are routine occurrences of: (i) unsuccessful attempts to penetrate computer networks or services maintained by Subcontractor; and (ii) immaterial incidents such as “pinging” or “denial of services” attacks.  At the request of TokenEx, Subcontractor shall identify:  the date of the Security Incident, the scope of the Security Incident, Subcontractor’s response to the Security Incident, and to the extent permitted by law, the identification of the party responsible for causing the Security Incident, if known.

9. Data Breach Notification and Mitigation.

9.1 HIPAA Data Breach Notification and Mitigation. Subcontractor agrees to implement reasonable systems for the discovery and prompt reporting of any “breach” of “unsecured PHI” as those terms are defined by 45 C.F.R. §164.402 (“HIPAA Breach”).  The Parties acknowledge that 45 C.F.R. §§164.404 and 164.410, as described below in this Section 9.1, govern the determination of the date of a HIPAA Breach.  In the event of any conflict between this Section 9.1 and the Confidentiality Requirements, the more stringent requirements shall govern.  Following the discovery of a HIPAA Breach, Subcontractor will notify TokenEx immediately and in no event later than five (5) business days after Subcontractor discovers such HIPAA Breach unless Subcontractor is prevented from doing so by 45 C.F.R. §164.412 concerning law enforcement investigations.  If known to Subcontractor, Subcontractor shall identify in writing for TokenEx the data impacted by and scope of impact of a HIPAA Breach (e.g., Individuals from which the PHI that was subject to the HIPAA Breach originated and/or databases, instances, etc. impacted by the HIPAA Breach) no later than five (5) business days following a HIPAA Breach.  For purposes of reporting a HIPAA Breach to TokenEx, the discovery of a HIPAA Breach shall occur as of the first day on which such HIPAA Breach is known to Subcontractor, or, by exercising reasonable diligence would have been known to Subcontractor.  Subcontractor will be considered to have had knowledge of a HIPAA Breach if the HIPAA Breach is known, or by exercising reasonable diligence would have been known, to any person (other than the person committing the HIPAA Breach) who is an employee, officer or other agent of Subcontractor.  No later than seven (7) business days following a HIPAA Breach, Subcontractor shall provide TokenEx with sufficient information to permit TokenEx to comply with the HIPAA Breach notification requirements set forth at 45 C.F.R. §164.400 et seq.  Additionally, if the following information is known to (or can be reasonably obtained by) Subcontractor, Subcontractor will provide TokenEx with:  (i) contact information for Individuals who were or who may have been impacted by the HIPAA Breach (e.g., first and last name, mailing address, street address, phone number, email address); (ii) a brief description of the circumstances of the HIPAA Breach, including the date of the HIPAA Breach and date of discovery; (iii) a description of the types of unsecured PHI involved in the HIPAA Breach (e.g., names, social security number, date of birth, address(es), account numbers of any type, disability codes, diagnostic and/or billing codes and similar information); (iv) a brief description of what Subcontractor has done or is doing to investigate the HIPAA Breach, mitigate harm to the Individual impacted by the HIPAA Breach, and protect against future HIPAA Breaches; and (v) appoint a liaison and provide contact information for same so that TokenEx may ask questions or learn additional information concerning the HIPAA Breach.  Following a HIPAA Breach, Subcontractor will have a continuing duty to inform TokenEx of new information learned by Subcontractor regarding the HIPAA Breach, including but not limited to the information described in items (i) through (v) above.  This Section 9.1 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement and shall remain in effect for so long as Subcontractor maintains PHI.

9.2 Data Breach Notification and Mitigation Under Other Laws. In addition to the requirements of Section 9.1, Subcontractor agrees to implement reasonable systems for the discovery and prompt reporting of any breach of individually identifiable information (including but not limited to PHI and referred to hereinafter as “Individually Identifiable Information”) that, if misused, disclosed, lost or stolen, would trigger an obligation under one or more State data breach notification laws (each a “State Breach”) to notify the individuals who are the subject of the information.  Subcontractor agrees that in the event any Individually Identifiable Information is lost, stolen, used or disclosed in violation of one or more State data breach notification laws, Subcontractor shall promptly:  (i) notify TokenEx within five (5) business days of such State Breach; (ii) if known to Subcontractor, identify in writing for TokenEx the individuals impacted by and scope of impact of any State Breach (e.g., individuals from which the Individually Identifiable Information that was subject to a State Breach originated and/or databases, instances, etc. impacted by the State Breach) no later than five (5) business days following such State Breach; (iii) cooperate and assist TokenEx with any investigation into any State Breach or alleged State Breach; (iv) cooperate and assist TokenEx with any investigation into any State Breach or alleged State Breach conducted by any State Attorney General or State Consumer Affairs Department (or their respective agents); (v) cooperate with TokenEx regarding the respective obligations of TokenEx and Subcontractor to mitigate to the extent practicable any potential harm to the individuals impacted by the State Breach; and (vi) assist with the implementation of any decision by any State agency, including any State Attorney General or State Consumer Affairs Department (or their respective agents), to notify individuals impacted or potentially impacted by a State Breach.  This Section 9.2 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement and shall remain in effect for so long as Subcontractor maintains PHI or Individually Identifiable Information.

9.3 Breach Indemnification. Subcontractor shall indemnify, defend and hold TokenEx and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns harmless from and against any and all losses, claims, actions, demands, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including costs of judgments, settlements, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees actually incurred) (collectively “Information Disclosure Claims”) arising from or related to: (i) the use or disclosure of Individually Identifiable Information (including PHI) in violation of the terms of this Agreement or applicable law; and (ii) whether in oral, paper or electronic media, any HIPAA Breach of unsecured PHI and/or State Breach of Individually Identifiable Information.  If Subcontractor assumes the defense of an Information Disclosure Claim,  TokenEx shall  have the right, at its expense, to participate in the defense of such Information Disclosure Claim.  Subcontractor shall not take any final action with respect to any Information Disclosure Claim without the prior written consent of TokenEx.  To the extent permitted by law, Subcontractor shall be fully liable to TokenEx for any acts, failures or omissions of its Vendor Subcontractors and agents in furnishing the services as if they were Subcontractor’s own acts, failures or omissions.  For purposes of this Section 9.3, PHI and Individually Identifiable Information shall refer to PHI and Individually Identifiable Information used, disclosed, accessed, created, maintained, received or transmitted by, and/or under the direction or control of, Subcontractor and/or its Vendor Subcontractors at the time of any HIPAA Breach and/or State Breach.  This Section 9.3 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement and shall remain in effect for so long as Subcontractor maintains PHI or Individually Identifiable Information.

10. Term and Termination.

10.1 Termination. This Agreement shall remain in effect until terminated in accordance with the terms of this Section 10; provided, however, that termination shall not affect the respective obligations or rights of the Parties arising under this Agreement prior to the effective date of termination, all of which shall continue in accordance with their terms.

10.2 Termination without Cause. TokenEx shall have the right to terminate this Agreement for any reason upon thirty (30) days written notice to Subcontractor.

10.3 Termination with Cause. Either Party may immediately terminate this Agreement as set forth in this Section 10.3 (the “Terminating Party”) and shall have no further obligations to the other Party (the “Terminated Party”) hereunder if either of the following events shall have occurred and are continuing:

a. The Terminated Party fails to observe or perform any material covenant or obligation contained in this Agreement for ten (10) days after written notice thereof has been given to the Terminated Party;

b. A material violation by the Terminated Party of any provision of the Confidentiality Requirements or applicable federal or state privacy law relating to the obligations of the Terminated Party under this Agreement.

10.4 TokenEx May Terminate Business Arrangements if Subcontractor is Terminated for Cause. Termination of this Agreement for either of the two reasons set forth in Section 10.3 above shall be cause for TokenEx to immediately terminate for cause any Business Arrangement pursuant to which Subcontractor uses, discloses, accesses, receives, creates, maintains or transmits PHI for or on behalf of TokenEx.

10.5 Termination Upon Conclusion of Business Arrangements. Upon the expiration or termination of all Business Arrangements, either TokenEx or Subcontractor may terminate this Agreement by providing written notice to the other Party.

10.6 Return of PHI Upon Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, Subcontractor agrees either to return all PHI or to destroy all PHI received from  TokenEx or otherwise through the performance of services under the Business Arrangements that is in the possession or control of Subcontractor or its Subcontractors.  In the case of PHI for which it is not feasible to return or destroy, Subcontractor shall extend the protections of this Agreement to such PHI and limit further uses and disclosures of such PHI to those purposes that make the return or destruction infeasible, for so long as Subcontractor maintains such PHI.  Subcontractor shall comply with other applicable state or federal law, which may require a specific period of retention, redaction, or other treatment of such PHI.  This Section 10.6 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement and shall remain in effect for so long as Subcontractor maintains PHI.

11. No Warranty.

PHI IS PROVIDED TO SUBCONTRACTOR SOLELY ON AN “AS IS” BASIS.   TOKENEX DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

12. Ineligible Persons.

Subcontractor represents and warrants that Subcontractor and its directors, officers, and key employees:  (i) are not currently excluded, debarred, or otherwise ineligible to participate in the federal health care programs as defined in 42 U.S.C. §1320a-7b(f) or any state healthcare program (collectively, the “Healthcare Programs”); (ii) have not been convicted of a criminal offense related to the provision of healthcare items or services but have not yet been excluded, debarred, or otherwise declared ineligible to participate in the Healthcare Programs; and (iii) are not under investigation or otherwise aware of any circumstances which may result in Subcontractor being excluded from participation in the Healthcare Programs (collectively, the “Warranty of Non-exclusion”). Subcontractor’s representations and warranties underlying the Warranty of Non-exclusion shall be ongoing during the Term, and Subcontractor shall immediately notify TokenEx of any change in the status of the representations and warranties set forth in this Section 12.  Any breach of this Section 12 shall give TokenEx the right to terminate this Agreement immediately.

13. Waiver.

No provision of this Agreement or any breach thereof shall be deemed waived unless such waiver is in writing and signed by the Party claimed to have waived such provision or breach. No waiver of a breach shall constitute a waiver for excuse any different or subsequent breach.

14. Assignment.

Neither Party may assign (whether by operation or law or otherwise) any of its rights or delegate or subcontract any of its obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, TokenEx shall have the right to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to any entity that is an affiliate or successor of TokenEx, whether by merger, acquisition, change in control, or other transaction involving the sale of all or substantially all of TokenEx’s’ assets, without the prior approval of Subcontractor.

15. Severability.

Any provision of this Agreement that is determined to be invalid or unenforceable will be ineffective to the extent of such determination without invalidating the remaining provisions of this Agreement or affecting the validity or enforceability of such remaining provisions.

16. Governing Law.

This Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware, excluding its conflicts of laws provisions. Any disputes arising out of this Agreement shall be subject to binding and final arbitration, pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (as amended from time to time).

17. Equitable Relief.

Subcontractor understands and acknowledges that any disclosure or misappropriation of any PHI in violation of this Agreement will cause TokenEx irreparable harm, the amount of which may be difficult to ascertain, and therefore agrees that TokenEx shall have the right to apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for specific performance and/or an order restraining and enjoining any such further disclosure or breach and for such other relief as TokenEx shall deem appropriate.  Such right of TokenEx is to be in addition to the remedies otherwise available to TokenEx at law or in equity.  Subcontractor expressly waives the defense that a remedy in damages will be adequate and further waives any requirement in an action for specific performance or injunction for the posting of a bond by TokenEx.

18. Nature of Agreement; Independent Contractor.

Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create: (i) a partnership, joint venture or other joint business relationship between the Parties or any of their affiliates or TokenEx’s; or (ii) a relationship of employer and employee between the Parties.  Subcontractor is an independent contractor and not an agent of TokenEx.  This Agreement does not express or imply any commitment to purchase or sell goods or services.

19. Counterparts; Execution.

This Agreement and any amendments hereto may be executed by the Parties hereto individually or in any combination, in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be an original and all of which shall together constitute one and the same agreement.  Execution and delivery of this Agreement and any amendments by the Parties shall be legally valid and effective through (i) executing and delivering the paper copy of the document, (ii) transmitting the executed paper copy of the document by facsimile transmission, or electronic mail in “portable document format” (“.pdf”) or other electronically scanned format, or (iii) creating, generating, sending, receiving or storing by electronic means this Agreement and any amendments, the execution of which is accomplished through use of an electronic process and executed or adopted by a Party with the intent to execute this Agreement (i.e., “electronic signature” through a process such as DocuSign®).

20. Entire Agreement.

This Agreement constitutes the complete agreement between Subcontractor and TokenEx relating to the matters specified in this Agreement and supersedes all prior representations or agreements, whether oral or written, with respect to such matters.  In the event of any conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the terms of the Business Arrangements or any such later agreement(s), the terms of this Agreement shall control unless the terms of such Business Arrangements are stricter with respect to PHI and comply with the Confidentiality Requirements, or the Parties specifically otherwise agree in writing.  No oral modification or waiver of any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be binding on either Party to this Agreement or on TokenEx; provided, however, that upon the enactment of any law, regulation, court decision or relevant government publication and/or interpretive guidance or policy that TokenEx believes in good faith will adversely impact the use or disclosure of PHI under this Agreement, TokenEx may amend the Agreement to comply with such law, regulation, court decision or government publication, guidance or policy by delivering a written amendment to Subcontractor which shall be effective thirty (30) calendar days after receipt and written acceptance by TokenEx, not to be unreasonably withheld.  No obligation on either Party to enter into any transaction is to be implied from the execution or delivery of this Agreement. This Agreement is for the benefit of, and shall be binding upon the Parties, their affiliates and respective successors and assigns.

21. Notice.

All notices, requests, demands and other communications required or permitted to be given or made under this Agreement shall be in writing, shall be effective upon receipt or attempted delivery, and shall be sent by:  (i) personal delivery; (ii) certified or registered United States mail, return receipt requested; (iii) overnight delivery service with proof of delivery; or (iv) facsimile with return facsimile acknowledging receipt.  Notices shall be sent to the addresses below.  No Party to this Agreement shall refuse delivery of any notice hereunder.
