PLANSIGHT’S AND ITS LICENSORS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS’ TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIM OR DAMAGE ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO PLANSIGHT DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
- The fees for the Software reflect this allocation of risk and limitations of liability. These limitations form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties, and shall apply notwithstanding the failure of the essential purpose of any limited remedy. The above limitations may be superseded by law in some jurisdictions.
- Publicity. Any press releases or other public statement regarding this Agreement may be made only with the other party’s consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, except that a party may make public disclosures to the extent required by law, and Plansight is permitted to include Customer’s name on customer lists that may be posted on Plansight’s Website or provided to potential customers and other third parties.
- Assignment. Customer may not assign or transfer this Agreement, its account with Plansight, or any of Customer’s rights or duties hereunder to any third party without prior written consent of Plansight, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Plansight may assign, subcontract, transfer, or otherwise dispose our rights and obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. Plansight shall remain primarily liable for the performance of all of its subcontracted obligations, to the same extent as if Plansight itself had performed such obligations.
- Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement, including the attached exhibits and the related Orders, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or oral agreements or understandings with respect thereto. Any preprinted terms in a purchase order submitted by Customer to Plansight are expressly agreed to be of no force or effect. This Agreement may not be amended except by a writing signed by authorized representatives of both parties.
- No Waiver. Any waiver by either party of a default or obligation under this Agreement will be effective only if in writing. Such a waiver does not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. No failure to exercise any right or power under this Agreement or to insist on strict compliance by the other party will constitute a waiver of the right in the future to exercise such right or power or to insist on strict compliance.
- Choice of Law and Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah, excluding conflicts of laws provisions. If any dispute arises concerning this Agreement and/or Plansight’s products or services, venue shall be laid in Salt Lake County, Utah. Utah state and federal courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any such dispute, and the parties hereby consent to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
- Attorneys’ Fees. In the event of any breach with respect to this Agreement, the breaching party, in addition to all other obligations and liabilities hereunder, shall pay all attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees, court costs, investigation expenses, and all other costs and expenses incurred by the non-defaulting party in connection with such breach and enforcement of this Agreement.
- Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by a court or governmental authority, that provision shall be modified, if possible, to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable, or if it cannot be so modified, then severed, and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
- Export Compliance. Customer may not use, export or re-export any of the Software’s data, software code, content or materials in any form in connection with this Agreement in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations, or without first obtaining the appropriate United States and foreign government authorizations.
- Notices. All notices required under this Agreement will be in writing and will be delivered personally, mailed by registered or certified mail with a return receipt requested, sent by commercial overnight delivery service with provisions for a receipt, or sent by e-mail, to the address of the receiving party set forth in the Order or such other address a party may specify by written notice. Notices shall be presumed to have been received by the other party (i) upon receipt if sent by hand delivery, registered or certified mail, or delivery service; or (ii) if sent by email, upon confirmation of receipt by non-automated means. Plansight may also send notices to Customer by posting such information on the Software portal, and such notices will be deemed received one (1) day after being posted. Customer hereby consents to receiving legal notices electronically in this manner. If Customer refuses or withdraw its consent to receive notices electronically, Plansight may terminate this Agreement upon notice to Customer.
- Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors. Customer is not an agent of Plansight and will not represent to any third party that it is an employee or agent of Plansight. Customer shall have no authority to enter into any contract on behalf of Plansight.
- Injunctive Relief. Each party acknowledges that the other party’s intellectual property and Confidential Information is highly valuable to the other party, that any breach of such party’s obligations with respect to confidentiality and/or use of the other party’s intellectual property, including any breach by Customer of any restrictions on use of the Software or the scope of the rights granted by Plansight herein, may severely damage the other party, the extent of which damage would be difficult to ascertain and, therefore, that the other party is entitled to seek, among other remedies, temporary and permanent injunctive relief and other equitable relief for any such breach, without the necessity of posting bond or other security, to the extent permitted by law.
- Force Majeure. A party shall be excused from delays or failure to perform its duties (other than payment obligations) to the extent such delays or failures result from acts of nature, riots, war, acts of public enemies, fires, epidemics, labor disputes, or any other causes beyond its reasonable control. The parties will promptly inform and consult with each other as to any of the above causes that in their judgment may or could be the cause of a substantial delay in the performance of this Agreement. The affected party shall resume performance as soon as is reasonably feasible.
- Electronic Signatures and Delivery; Signature Authority. This Agreement and any other documents to be delivered in connection herewith may be electronically signed and delivered. Any electronic signatures appearing on this Agreement or such other documents are the same as handwritten signatures for the purposes of validity, enforceability, and admissibility. The person accepting this Agreement and any related Orders on behalf of Customer represents that he or she has the authority to bind Customer to this Agreement.

BUSINESS ASSOCIATE AGREEMENT
This BAA applies only if Customer is a covered entity (or a business associate of a third-party covered entity) under HIPAA and is sharing PHI with Plansight. In this BAA, Customer is referred to as “Covered Entity” and Plansight is referred to as “Business Associate.”
THIS BUSINESS ASSOCIATE AGREEMENT (the “BAA”) is entered into by and between Plansight, Inc. (“Business Associate”) and the Customer specified in the Terms of Service and Order associated with this BAA (“Covered Entity”). Unless otherwise defined in this BAA, all capitalized words, like PHI, have the meanings set forth in the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules, 45 C.F.R. Parts 160, 162 and 164, as modified from time to time.
WHEREAS, Business Associate has been engaged by Covered Entity to perform certain services under the Terms of Service between the parties (the “Services Agreement”), wherein Business Associate may need to access, use and/or disclose PHI received from Covered Entity as a business associate; and
WHEREAS, the parties desire to ensure that their respective rights and responsibilities under the Services Agreement are in accordance with applicable federal statutory and regulatory requirements relating to the access, use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (or “PHI”), including, without limitation, the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information, and the Security Standards, collectively codified at 45 C.F.R. Parts 160, 162 and 164 (respectively the “Privacy Standards” and “Security Standards” ) under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, as set forth in Subtitle D of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“HITECH”); and
WHEREAS, the purpose of this BAA is to satisfy certain standards and requirements of HIPAA, HITECH, the Privacy Standards, and the Security Standards, and regulations thereunder;
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing recitals and the mutual covenants and agreements set forth herein, Business Associate and Covered Entity agree as follows:
- “Electronic Health Record” shall have the same meaning as the term “electronic health record” in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, § 13400(5).
- “HIPAA Rules” shall mean the Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Enforcement Rules at 45 CFR Part 160 and Part 164 and regulations issued thereunder, as may be expanded by HITECH.
- “Protected Health Information” or “PHI” has the meaning given to Protected Health Information in the HIPAA Rules. For purposes of this BAA, “PHI” is limited to PHI that is provided, created, exchanged or received by or between Business Associate and Covered Entity.
- Other Terms. The following terms used in this BAA shall have the same meaning as those terms in the HIPAA Rules: Breach, Data Aggregation, Designated Record Set, Disclosure, Electronic Protected Health Information (or “Electronic PHI”), Electronic Transactions Rule, Health Care Operations, Individual, Minimum Necessary, Notice of Privacy Practices, Required by Law, Secretary, Security Incident, Subcontractor, Transaction, Unsecured Protected Health Information, and Use.
- Regulatory References. A reference in this BAA to a section in the HIPAA Rules means the section as then in effect or as amended.

Such reports will include a description of the PHI used or disclosed and the nature of the Use or Disclosure, to the extent such information is known by Business Associate;
- Subcontractors. In accordance with 45 CFR 164.502(e)(1)(ii) and 164.308(b)(2), if applicable, ensure that any Subcontractors that create, receive, maintain, or transmit PHI or Electronic PHI on behalf of Business Associate agree to same restrictions, conditions, and requirements that apply to Business Associate with respect to such PHI or Electronic PHI; including the obligation to report to Business Associate any instances of which it is aware of violation of their agreement with respect to PHI or Electronic PHI;
