ORDERING AND PROVISION OF THE SERVICE
Affiliates. Customer may allow its Affiliates to access and use the Service only if Customer is fully liable for its Affiliates’ use of the Service and compliance with the Agreement. “Affiliate” means an entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, a party. Customer may allow its Affiliates to purchase the Service under the terms of this ToU only if Customer informs SocialTrendly in writing of the specific Affiliate authorized to make a purchase (“Authorized Affiliate”). If an Authorized Affiliate executes an ordering document under the terms of this ToU, that Authorized Affiliate will be (a) deemed a “Customer” for that purchase only; and (b) jointly and severally liable with Customer for its use of the Service and compliance with the Agreement.
Payment. Customer will pay the fees for the Service stated in the ordering document within 30 calendar days after receipt of SocialTrendly’s invoice, unless otherwise stated in the ordering document, subject to approved line of credit. If credit card payment is available, SocialTrendly will charge Customer’s credit card upon receipt of the credit card information and also upon renewals. Customer’s purchases are non-cancelable and payment for the Service is non-refundable, except as otherwise stated in this ToU. Customer will maintain complete and accurate billing and contact information with SocialTrendly.
Taxes. Customer will pay or reimburse SocialTrendly for all federal, state, and local taxes, including sales, use, gross receipts, VAT, GST, or similar transaction taxes imposed on Customer’s purchase of the Service, unless Customer provides SocialTrendly with a valid tax exemption certificate. All taxes payable by Customer will be separately stated and exclusive of the fees. Customer will have no liability for taxes that are statutorily imposed on SocialTrendly including taxes or fees measured by SocialTrendly’s net or gross income.
Use of the Service. Only Customer-designated employees and contractors (each, a “Customer User”) are authorized to use the Service. Customer and Customer’s Users must be located in the United States. Customer will use the Service solely for Customer’s internal use and will not provide access to the Service to any third party, except as otherwise permitted in the Agreement. Customer will notify SocialTrendly immediately upon learning of any unauthorized use of the Service or any other breach of security relating to the Service. Customer (a) will designate in writing one Customer User for each seat it purchases; (b) will promptly provide to and maintain with SocialTrendly accurate contact information for each Customer User; and (c) will not, and will not permit a Customer User to, share a Customer User’s access to the Service with any other individual. In the event a Customer User ceases employment, takes any type of leave or vacation, or transfers work function, Customer may transfer the Customer User's seat to a different Customer User. SocialTrendly reserves the right to limit the number of transfers of each seat. SocialTrendly may, in its sole discretion, change, modify, upgrade or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Service in whole or in part. The Service allow Customer Users to post content such as profile information, comments, questions, and other content or information (“User Content”). The User Content Customer Users create remains Customer’s; however, by sharing User Content through the Service, Customer agrees to allow others to view, edit, and/or share the User Content in accordance with Customer’s settings and this Agreement. SocialTrendly has the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to remove any User Content that is shared via the Service. Handling of Personal Data. If Customer uploads or otherwise provides SocialTrendly with Personal Data (defined below) in connection with its use of the Service (“Customer Personal Data”), then SocialTrendly, in providing the Service, processes Customer Personal Data on behalf of Customer. Customer is the controller of Customer Personal Data and SocialTrendly will process Customer Personal Data (i) in accordance with applicable Data Protection Laws (defined in section 2.3); (ii) in compliance with the written instructions received from Customer including, as applicable, sub-processing as necessary; and (iii) only for the purpose of providing, supporting and improving the Service, using appropriate technical and organizational security measures. “Personal Data” means information about an individual that (a) can be used to identify, contact or locate a specific individual; (b) can be combined with other information that is linked to a specific individual to identify, contact or locate a specific individual; or (c) is defined as “personal data” or “personal information” by applicable laws or regulations relating to the collection, use, storage or disclosure of information about an identifiable individual.
Compliance with Laws. The parties will comply with all applicable international, federal, state, provincial and local laws relating to (a) corruption practice, bribery, and acts contrary to the public administration including the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, 15 U.S.C. § 78dd-1, et seq.; (b) discrimination against employees or job applicants based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, veteran status or disability. and (c) the privacy, confidentiality, security and protection of Personal Data including the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC as amended and as implemented in the various European Economic Area countries or any similar and applicable legislation enacted outside of the European Economic Area and security breach notification laws (“Data Protection Laws”).
Definition. “Confidential Information” means any information disclosed under the Agreement that (a) if tangible, is clearly marked as “Confidential” or with a similar designation; (b) if intangible, is identified as “Confidential” by discloser at time of disclosure and confirmed in writing to recipient as being Confidential Information; or (c) from the relevant circumstances should reasonably be known by recipient to be confidential (e.g. pricing, non-public Personal Data, etc.).
Exclusions. Confidential Information does not include any portion of the information that recipient can prove (a) was rightfully known to recipient before receipt from discloser; (b) was generally known to the public on the Effective Date; (c) becomes generally known to the public after the Effective Date, through no fault of recipient; (d) was received by recipient from a third party without any confidentiality obligation; or (e) was independently developed by recipient without breach of this section 3.
Limited Use and Non-Disclosure. Recipient will (a) use Confidential Information solely to fulfill its obligations under the Agreement; (b) protect Confidential Information using the same degree of care it uses to protect its own confidential information of a like nature, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care; (c) not disclose Confidential Information to any third party except (1) to Affiliates or employees, consultants, and agents who (i) have a need to know it in order to carry out their obligations under the Agreement, and (ii) are under written confidentiality and non-use obligations at least as restrictive as those stated in this ToU or (2) as required by law; and (d) not modify, reverse engineer, decompile, create other works from, or disassemble any Confidential Information, to the extent applicable, unless authorized in writing by discloser.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND OWNERSHIP. No right, title or interest in any intellectual property right transfers to the other party, except for the limited rights stated in the Agreement. Customer is not obligated to provide SocialTrendly or its Affiliates with any suggestions, enhancement requests, or other feedback about the Service or related technology. However, if Customer does provide any feedback to SocialTrendly, SocialTrendly may use and modify it without any restriction or payment.
TERM AND TERMINATION
Term. This ToU is effective on the date the first ordering document is executed by Customer and SocialTrendly (“Effective Date”) and remains in effect until terminated.
Termination and Suspension. Either party may terminate this ToU or an ordering document if the other party materially breaches the Agreement and fails to cure the breach within 30 days after receiving notice of the breach. SocialTrendly may suspend Customer’s access to the Service if Customer is in breach of the Agreement and the suspension will continue for as long as reasonably necessary for Customer to remedy the breach. If all ordering documents under this ToU have expired or been terminated, then either party may terminate this ToU for convenience by providing written notice to the other party.
