  13. Cloud Center, MATLAB Parallel Cloud, and MDCS On-Demand
    1. This Section governs your use of MATLAB Distributed Computing Server (“MDCS”) on cloud platforms (“Cloud Platforms”) made accessible through the MathWorks Cloud Center (“Cloud Center”), and sets forth the pricing and billing terms and conditions for your use of MDCS On-Demand, regardless of whether you access MDCS On-Demand on a public cloud or your company’s internal network. For purposes of this Section, “MDCS On-Demand” shall include both the standard MDCS On-Demand offering and the MATLAB Parallel Cloud version of MDCS On-Demand.
    2. If you use or access MDCS On-Demand, you must provide MathWorks with a valid credit card against which you have the authority to incur charges for MDCS On-Demand for the period of your use of MDCS On-Demand. You will automatically be billed monthly for your use of MDCS On-Demand.
    3. You are responsible for managing the extent of your use of MDCS On-Demand. You will be responsible for payment of all charges accrued through your use of MDCS On-Demand. If you use cloud services, like Amazon EC2, to run MDCS On-Demand, you are responsible for all charges associated with your use of those services. You further agree that your responsibility to pay MathWorks or a public cloud service provider such as Amazon will not be affected by your need for technical support for MDCS On-Demand.
    4. There are no set-up fees or fixed monthly charges for MDCS On-Demand. You will incur fees for the time that each on-demand worker is running, from startup to shutdown. Your use of MDCS On-Demand will be billed in arrears on a monthly basis by an automatic charge to your credit card. For standard MDCS On-Demand, your bill will be calculated based on the then-current hourly rate for an MDCS on-demand worker multiplied by the aggregate number of hours, per license, that such on-demand workers run, rounded up to the next hour. For the MATLAB Parallel Cloud version of MDCS On-Demand, your bill will be calculated in the same manner as standard MDCS On-Demand, with the exceptions that: 1) the hours of usage will be rounded up with each session, not on the basis of a monthly aggregate, and 2) each session’s bill will be calculated on the basis of a 16-worker cluster, regardless of how many workers are actually used. The hourly rate is subject to change at any time, without written notice. For further details on MDCS On-Demand pricing rates, please refer to the documentation.
    5. The Cloud Platforms may be comprised of hardware and services controlled by third party services providers. Your ability to use MDCS on the Cloud Platforms depends on the availability of such hardware and services, as well as your ongoing authorization to access the Cloud Platforms. MathWorks does not assume any liability and makes no warranty that a Cloud Platform will be operational or available to you. MathWorks also disclaims all warranties as to the security or stability of any Cloud Platforms systems, or the transfers to and from such systems.
    6. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, MathWorks may terminate your access to either the Cloud Center or MDCS On-Demand at any time and for any reason, upon written notice. MathWorks also reserves the right to terminate your access to the MathWorks Hosted License Manager. You may terminate your use of the Cloud Center or MDCS On-Demand at any time, by providing notice to MathWorks in writing of your desire to terminate your use. Termination of MDCS On-Demand causes your workers to stop running. You will remain responsible for any MDCS On-Demand usage balance accrued prior to termination of your MDCS On-Demand account.

The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction. In no event shall MathWorks’ or its affiliates’ aggregate liability arising out of or related to this Agreement exceed US one hundred dollars ($100.00 USD). Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion or limitation may not apply to you. You may also have other rights which vary from state to state and country to country.
  5. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless MathWorks, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and affiliates to the fullest extent allowed by law from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs, debt, and expenses (including without limitation attorneys' fees), collectively, “Claims”, arising from or relating to: (i) your use of and access to the Services; (ii) your use of any Third Party Services.; (iii) your breach of this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any other party’s right, including without limitation copyright, property, or privacy right; (iv) any claim that Your Content caused damage to another party; and (v) your violation of any applicable law, rule, or regulation. MathWorks reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Claims. You agree to reasonably cooperate as requested by MathWorks in the defense of any Claims. This indemnification obligation shall survive this Agreement and your use of the Services.

8. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

  1. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SERVICES OR THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, except that (A) any disputes relating to the enforcement of MathWorks’ intellectual property rights shall proceed in court, and (B) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision; the arbitrator shall apply Massachusetts law to all other matters. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any party to the arbitration may at any time seek injunctions or other forms of equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction.
  2. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND MATHWORKS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT AND THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. IN ADDITION, MATHWORKS AND YOU EACH AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF, CLAIMANT OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR LITIGATE OR ARBITRATE ON A CLASS-WIDE BASIS. YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE EXPRESSLY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVED THESE RIGHTS.
  3. Arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) before a single AAA arbitrator under the AAA’s rules, which are available at www.adr.org, except that these terms govern to the extent they conflict with the AAA’s rules. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees and costs will be governed by AAA’s rules, but if you are unable to pay any of them, MathWorks will pay them for you. In addition, MathWorks will reimburse all such fees and costs for claims totaling less than $75,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, MathWorks will not seek its attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims or defenses are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitrator shall have no power to alter, amend, revoke or suspend any of the provisions of this Agreement. Except to the extent required by law, no party, arbitrator, representative, counsel or witness shall disclose or confirm to any person not present at the arbitration hearings any information about the hearings, including the names of the parties and arbitrators, the nature and amount of the claims, the financial condition of any party, the expected date of hearing or the award made. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and not appealable, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
  4. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if the class action waiver above is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, then those parts won’t be arbitrated but will proceed in court, with the rest proceeding in arbitration.
  5. This Section 8 shall survive expiration, termination or rescission of this Agreement.
