6.4. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Our services is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts You have authorized Us to charge to Your credit card), We may, without limiting Our other rights and remedies, accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Our services to You until such amounts are paid in full.

If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section 6.6, We will invoice You and You will pay that amount unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income, property and employees.

8.1. Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Your Confidential Information includes Your Data; Our Confidential Information includes the Services and Content; and Confidential Information of each party includes the terms and conditions of this Agreement and all executed Quotes (including pricing), as well as business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party.

Neither party will disclose the terms of this Agreement or any Quote, executed or otherwise, to any third party other than its Affiliates, legal counsel and accountants without the other party’s prior written consent, provided that a party that makes any such disclosure to its Affiliate, legal counsel or accountants will remain responsible for such Affiliate’s, legal counsel’s or accountant’s compliance with this Section 8.2.
8.3. Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information.
8.4. Non-Solicitation.

Submitting a Counter-Notice After Removal of an Affected Party’s Material

The counter-notice must include:
- Your physical or electronic signature;

Verb or its designated agent will forward your counter-notice to the party who submitted the infringement notice. If the complainant does not file an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity related to the removed or disabled material within ten business days of receiving the counter-notice from Verb, then Verb may reinstate the removed or disabled material.
Submitting a Complaint to Report Violation of Your Likeness
If You think that content someone else has posted on Verb’s applications, websites or services uses your name, voice, signature, image or likeness, or that of your minor child, without your permission and in violation of a legally recognized right of publicity, we encourage you first to contact the user directly about your concerns.
