The provision of services by iF lastmile to its customers shall consist of services related to the preparation, dispatch, collection, storage and replenishment of products of its customers (i.e., the end customers or consumers of iF lastmile's customers), through the provision of such services by iF lastmile to you or through the appropriate licence for the provision of such services through iF lastmile's software as a service (hereinafter, the "Services"). The detail and level of the Services actually contracted by you from iF lastmile shall be reflected in the specific terms and conditions of the Agreement.

The Agreement between iF lastmile and its customers does not imply exclusivity for either party. Therefore, customers may contract with third parties for the same services that they have contracted with iF lastmile, and iF lastmile may offer such services to any third party with absolute freedom, in relation to all types of goods, whether similar or related in any way to the Services or the products included in the Agreement, including without limitation any goods or products that might be in direct competition with iF lastmile's customers.

If a company subcontracted by iF lastmile fails to comply with the agreed delivery time, the compensation that may correspond to the customer shall not exceed the price paid by the latter to said courier company or to iF lastmile, or the coverage that said company has for such events. The delay in any delivery caused by absence (unknown addressee or address), the addressee's unnotified change of address, or the non-payment of postage, substitutes or reimbursements will not be considered as non-compliance.
iF lastmile shall not be liable for late deliveries caused by carrier delays by air, sea or rail.
Any compensation for loss of a parcel shall be borne by the courier company concerned, unless the parcel was undoubtedly lost for reasons attributable to iF lastmile. In such event, the limitation of liability set out in Stipulation Six below shall apply.

At no time does iF lastmile grant ownership rights over its software, but rather grants the right to use it under the conditions described in this licence, in the understanding that in no case is it authorised for reproduction and public dissemination, transfer, sale, rental or loan, and the customer undertakes not to transfer its partial or total use in any manner, nor to disclose, publish or make it available to other parties in any other way.
Each party shall retain all rights to their respective names, logos, trademarks, databases and any other assets and rights.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, any error or failure of the software, understanding as such the inadequacy of its operation (as previously announced by iF lastmile) caused by material programming errors or by the lack of correspondence between the operation of the software with respect to the functionalities foreseen in the specific terms and conditions of the Agreement, must be communicated by the customer to iF lastmile, including all available information on the failure or error detected. iF lastmile will analyse the error or faults reported by the customer and will take the appropriate action to ensure that the software functions normally. If the errors or faults detected in the software make it definitively impossible for the customer to use the software, iF lastmile undertakes to return to the customer the amounts received as the price of the licence, but no other type of compensation or indemnity for damages will be applicable or demandable by the customer. This refund will only take place if the parties have specified in the specific terms and conditions the isolated price for the licence for temporary use of the iF lastmile software in relation to the price for the rest of the Services.
Likewise, in the event that professional services have been contracted from iF lastmile, iF lastmile warrants that its services will be performed with due care and diligence. iF lastmile assumes the obligation to repeat any work that is not performed in accordance with this warranty, provided that it is brought to its attention within 10 days from the date of acceptance of such work or service.

SEVEN. EVENTS OF TERMINATION
The parties may terminate the Agreement immediately, in addition to non-performance not remedied within a maximum period of fifteen (15) business days, for the following reasons:

In any event, the Customer shall pay iF lastmile any amounts owed to iF lastmile up until the date of termination of this Agreement.
Regardless of the cause of termination of the Agreement, the obligations relating to Intellectual Property, Limited Liability and Confidentiality shall remain in force indefinitely.
By reason of the Agreement, each party may become aware of certain information of the other party, defined as confidential information, including but not limited to technical knowledge, methodologies, work plans, products, systems, processes, know-how, products, designs and trade secrets.
Each of the parties undertakes to protect all information received from the other party, of which it becomes aware as a consequence of the Agreement, which refers to technical knowledge, know-how, methodologies, work plans, products or commercial activities and, in general, any data or information, in written, audio-visual or audio format, provided and identified by the other party as "Confidential Information" and, therefore, to keep it secret, regardless of its nature, using the means of protection established in this Agreement and to keep it secret, using the means of protection established in this Agreement and the same means it normally uses to protect and safeguard its own confidential information.
Both parties shall bring to the attention of the other party any suspicion, information or warning that the security of the other party's Confidential Information is or may be compromised in any way. In addition, the parties expressly undertake:
• To keep secret all the Confidential Information disclosed by the other party, belonging to or relating to it and not to disclose it or allow it to be made available to any person, firm or company (except to the extent authorised and permitted under the terms of this Agreement), without the prior written consent of the other party.

• Upon written request of the other party, to return to the other party the Confidential Information disclosed by, belonging to or about the other party (and any copies) or confirm to the other party in writing that it has been destroyed.
However, this duty of confidentiality shall not apply in respect of information which:
• Is in the public domain.
• Was known by either party prior to the date of this Agreement or was obtained by lawful means.
• Was developed independently by either of the parties.
• Was requested by an administrative or judicial authority. In the latter case, iF lastmile must immediately inform its customers of the request received.
Each party shall ensure that all persons associated with it, whether as directors, employees or advisors, comply with the provisions of this clause.
NINE. DATA PROTECTION
The parties acknowledge and agree that the personal data of their employees and contract staff may be processed by the other party for the performance of the contract. Based on the foregoing, they declare that they have the prior assignment of the rights thereto for the indicated processing.
Likewise, the party processing the data undertakes to comply with all the requirements set out in EU Regulation 216/679 on Data Protection, as well as in Organic Law 3/2018 regarding the use and custody of data considered personal, respecting the rights of access, rectification, limitation, erasure, etc. recognised in the applicable laws.
Each party undertakes to process only such personal data as are absolutely necessary for the performance of the tasks entrusted to it. Once the contractual service has been fulfilled, the personal data must be destroyed or returned to the data controller, as well as any medium or documents containing any personal data subject to processing.
Each party undertakes not to disclose, transfer or communicate directly or indirectly any data, information or knowledge to which it may have had access during the contractual relationship. They also undertake to take the necessary measures, both with respect to their employees and to third parties who may have any connection with this agreement, to ensure compliance with the provisions of this clause. In the event that the other party uses the data for another purpose, communicates them or uses them in breach of the stipulations of this agreement, it will also be considered as the Data Controller, and shall be liable for any infringements it may have committed.
For the fulfilment or modification of the provisions of this condition, the parties may exercise their respective rights over the data, by communicating to the postal or electronic addresses known of the other party.
Without prejudice to what is established in the General Terms and Conditions regarding the protection of personal data, given that iF lastmile will act as the Data Controller of its Customers' own customers, the parties shall enter into a Data Controller Agreement, which shall be inseparable from the Service Agreement.
The Customer shall not assign the rights and obligations arising from the Agreement without the prior written consent of iF lastmile. A change of control of the customer shall not be deemed to be an assignment (the term "control" being understood as established in Article 42 of the Code of Commerce).
