2. ADDITIONAL USAGE LIMITATIONS AND CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES
2.1 DocuSign’s provision of DocuSign Signature is conditioned on Customer’s acknowledgement of and agreement to the following:
(a) DocuSign Signature facilitates the execution of eDocuments between the parties to those eDocuments.

(b) Between DocuSign and Customer, Customer has exclusive control over and responsibility for the content, quality, and format of any eDocument.

DocuSign is not responsible or liable to determine whether any particular eDocument is subject to an exception to applicable electronic signature laws, or whether it is subject to any particular agency promulgations, or whether it can be legally formed by electronic signatures;
(d) DocuSign is not responsible for determining how long any contracts, documents, and other records are required to be retained or stored under any applicable laws, regulations, or legal or administrative agency processes.

(g) Customer agrees that its assigned Account Administrator has authority to provide DocuSign with any required authorizations, requests, or consents on behalf of Customer with respect to Customer’s Account; and
(h) Customer agrees it is solely responsible for the accuracy and appropriateness of instructions given by it and its personnel to DocuSign in relation to the Services, including without limitation instructions through its Account as made by the assigned Account Administrator.
3. eDOCUMENT STORAGE AND DELETION
3.1 During the Term. Customer may retrieve electronic copies of its stored eDocuments at any time while this Service Schedule is in effect at no additional cost. DocuSign will store all completed eDocuments sent by Customer during the Term, by default. However, Customer has the option through its Account Administrator to change its Account settings to direct the deletion of all or certain designated eDocuments at an earlier date or periodic interval. If Customer fails to retrieve its eDocuments prior to the expiration or termination of the Service Schedule, Customer may request, no later than ninety (90) days after such expiration or termination, that DocuSign provide Professional Services to assist in retrieving completed eDocuments still remaining in the System, the details of which Professional Services will be set out in a SOW. After such ninety (90)-day period, DocuSign shall have no obligation to maintain or provide any eDocuments and DocuSign shall have the right to delete all eDocuments in the System or otherwise in its possession or under its control and delete Customer’s Account.
3.2 DocuSign may retain Transaction Data for as long as it has a business purpose to do so, provided that any Transaction Data that constitutes Confidential Information of Customer will at all times maintain that status, and DocuSign will comply with its confidentiality obligations as provided in the Agreement.
4. INFORMATION SECURITY AND DATA PROCESSING
4.1 Security. DocuSign will use commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to prevent unlawful or unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure of Customer Data in accordance with the provisions of DocuSign’s Security Attachment for DocuSign Signature found at: https://www.docusign.com/company/terms-and-conditions/schedule-docusign-signature/attachment-information-security.
4.2 Data Storage/Transfer. If Customer or Customer Affiliate is established in the United Kingdom, a Member State of the European Economic Area, or Switzerland, the Data Protection Attachment for DocuSign Signature found at: https://www.docusign.com/company/terms-and-conditions/schedule-docusign-signature/attachment-data-protection applies to the processing of any personal data (as defined the General Data Protection Regulation).
5. SUBSCRIPTION PLANS AND FEES
DocuSign Signature is made available based on a prepaid subscription, which is subject to the restrictions set forth in the applicable Order Form.
5.1 “Seat Allowance” means the maximum number of Authorized Users (“Seats”) that Customer may have active in its Account as assigned by Customer’s Account Administrator. For purposes of determining usage of Seats:
(a) The number of Seats in use is determined by the total number of Authorized Users registered in Customer’s Account with access to DocuSign Signature at any time during the Term.
(b) No two individuals may log onto or use DocuSign Signature as the same Authorized User, but Customer through its Account Administrator may unregister or deactivate Authorized Users and replace them with other Authorized Users without penalty, so long as the number of active Authorized Users registered at any one time does not exceed the number of Seats purchased.
5.2 “Envelope Allowance" means the cumulative number of Envelopes that may be sent by Authorized Users registered in Customer’s Account. There is no individual limit on number of Envelopes that may be sent by each Authorized User, so long as the total volume sent by all Authorized Users does not exceed the Envelope Allowance. For purposes of calculating Envelope usage:
(a) An Envelope is consumed when sent by an Authorized User, regardless of whether the Envelope has been received by any recipients or whether any recipients have performed any actions upon any eDocument in the Envelope;
(b) Usage of a Powerform will be applied against the Envelope Allowance. A Powerform will be deemed consumed at the time it is accessed by any user regardless of whether any actions are subsequently performed upon such Envelope. “Powerform” means an Envelope that may be accessed and completed by accessing a hyperlink (i.e. which does not need to be individually sent to each recipient);
(c) An Envelope sent via bulk send or automated batch sending, including through a DocuSign API, will be applied against the Envelope Allowance.
5.3 Calculation of Envelope Allowance. Unless otherwise set forth in the Order Form, the Envelope Allowance for each twelve (12)-month period during the Order Term is calculated by multiplying the Seat Allowance times one hundred (100) Envelopes. For example, a three (3)-year subscription for ten (10) Seats would result in an Envelope Allowance of one thousand (1000) Envelopes per year. An Envelope Allowance may be augmented by purchasing additional Seats (each of which supply an additional one hundred (100) Envelopes unless otherwise set forth in the Order Form) or additional batches of Envelopes, pursuant to an Order Form.
(a) Seats. If Customer through its Account Administrator adds more Authorized Users than the amount permitted under the Seat Allowance, then Customer hereby agrees that additional charges of one Seat per additional Authorized User for the remainder of the Order Term will become immediately due and payable. Additional Seats will be charged as a pro-rata portion (calculated based on the amount of time remaining in the Order Term) of the then-current list price for Seats under the applicable subscription type, or such other amount as is specified in the Order Form, and will include a pro-rata allocation of Envelopes.
(b) Envelopes. Customer hereby agrees that all Envelopes sent in excess of the Envelope Allowance during the Term will incur a per-Envelope overage charge at the then-current list price for the applicable subscription type, or such other amount as is specified in the Order Form. Envelope overage charges will be invoiced monthly in arrears.
5.5 Optional features, such as Authentication Measures or fax-back services, may be purchased on a subscription or per-use basis, as set forth in the Order Form.
6. DOCUSIGN PAYMENTS
6.1 DocuSign Signature may be ordered with “DocuSign Payments,” which means functionality that allows Customer to submit agreements, invoices, and other documents to Signers via DocuSign Signature to facilitate the submission of Signer payment credentials and authorizations directly to payment applications, gateways, processors, and service providers that store, process, or transmit cardholder data as part of authorization or settlement (“Payment Applications”).
6.2 DocuSign’s provision of DocuSign Payments is conditioned on Customer’s acknowledgement of and agreement to the following:
(b) Customer authorizes DocuSign to store, process, and transmit Customer Data as necessary for a Payment Application to facilitate payment processing between Customer and a third party designated by Customer. DocuSign Payments will temporarily store information received from Customer, such as account information for a Payment Application, only to facilitate the payment processing.
(c) Customer is solely responsible for complying with: (1) any applicable standards developed and published by payment networks (such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and any other credit, debit, or electronic funds transfer network), including but not limited to, the current Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”); and (2) all laws and regulations applicable to the payment processing conducted by Customer via DocuSign Payments, including but not limited to, those that may apply to Customer: in connection with collecting and storing information, including payment credentials about Signers; making adequate, clear, and conspicuous disclosures related to the storage and use of Signers’ payment credentials; and the use of stored payment credentials to collect future payments.
(d) Customer is solely responsible for any and all disputes with any Payment Applications or Signers related to or in connection with a payment processing sought to be facilitated via DocuSign Payments, including but not limited to: (1) chargebacks; (2) products or services not received; (3) return of, delayed delivery of, or cancelled products or services; (4) cancelled transactions; (5) duplicate transactions or charges; (6) electronic debits and credits involving bank accounts, debit cards, credit cards, and check issuances; and (7) the amount of time to complete payment processing.
6.3 To the extent applicable to DocuSign in the provision of DocuSign Payments, DocuSign represents that it is presently in compliance, and will remain in compliance, with the current PCI DSS Standard. DocuSign acknowledges that credit and debit card account numbers or related data processed via DocuSign Payments is, as applicable, owned exclusively by Customer, credit card issuers, the relevant payment networks, and entities licensed to process credit and debit card transactions on behalf of Customer, and further acknowledges that such information may be used by DocuSign solely to assist the foregoing parties in completing the processing activities described in the Agreement.
