As between the Customer and IntelePeer, Customer only owns, and reserves all right, title and interest in, the Intellectual Property Rights of certain information from Atmosphere® CPaaS related to Customer, its customers or users, which may consist of individual’s name, contact information, business information, billing records, contact lists, traffic logs and routing information, campaign engagement history, associated metadata, and the content of communications sent through or integrated with our Services, such as audio recordings, message bodies, and call recording transcriptions (“Customer Information”), its Applications, and any workflows Customer built into Atmosphere Smartflows® (“Customer Property”); provided that Customer acknowledges that other customers or users of Atmosphere® CPaaS may independently develop materials that could be substantially similar to Customer Property which will not constitute infringements of Customer’s Intellectual Property Rights. Customer grants IntelePeer a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, limited license in those Intellectual Property Rights to use for the sole purpose of providing, supporting and enhancing Atmosphere® CPaaS in accordance with this Agreement.
1.4.1 To protect our network and systems for Atmosphere® CPaaS, IntelePeer reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to: (i) monitor the Customer’s use of the Atmosphere® CPaaS under this Attachment; and (ii) suspend, without notice or liability, its performance in whole or in part under this Agreement, including without limitation blocking the transmission of any data or content, which might be in violation of this Agreement, without notice or liability.

1.4.5 Phone numbers used in association with Atmosphere® CPaaS are subject to rules and restrictions imposed by local, federal, or national governmental entities and telecommunications carriers. Customer acknowledges and agrees that IntelePeer is the “customer of record” for all phone numbers, for which IntelePeer has given Customer the right to use on the Atmosphere® CPaaS platform. As the customer of record, IntelePeer has certain rights and obligations with respect to porting the numbers, and may use the phone numbers subject to the terms of the Agreement. Unless otherwise required by law, IntelePeer reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse to allow Customer to port away any phone number, and to require Customer to have its account in good standing prior to such porting. In order to comply with applicable rules and restrictions, IntelePeer also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reclaim, without liability, any phone number associated with the Customer account to return the number to the relevant numbering plan, if Customer does not have adequate usage of that phone number or the phone number is otherwise deemed unutilized or underutilized pursuant to the rules and restrictions. If such reclamation occurs for any number on an account that is not otherwise suspended, IntelePeer will use commercially reasonable efforts to: (i) to work with telecommunication carriers to prevent the reclamation of any phone numbers; and (ii) provide Customer written notice prior to any reclamation, to the extent allowed by the applicable legal requirements. IntelePeer will not provide any notice for reclamation of any numbers associated with a suspended account. For avoidance of doubt, the rights of IntelePeer set forth in this Section do not apply to any toll free routing only numbers over which Customer has RESPORG control, or any Customer-provided Short Codes.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL INTELEPEER BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CUSTOMER’S USE OF ATMOSPHERE® CPAAS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FOR ITS INAPPROPRIATE, FRAUDULENT, OR INACCURATE CONTENT, CONTENT CORRUPTION, BREACH OF PRIVACY, DATA SECURITY, OR THIRD PARTY LICENSES ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH USAGE. CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY FAILURE OR NONPERFORMANCE OF ATMOSPHERE® CPAAS WILL BE FOR INTELEPEER TO USE COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE EFFORTS TO ADJUST OR REPAIR THE ASSOCIATED PLATFORM OR SERVICES. ALL SUCH DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY WILL BE ENFORCED ONLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
