Last Modified: Oct 11, 2022
These Terms of Service (these “Terms”) describe your rights and responsibilities when using the mobile and/or web-based software platform, websites and related services (the “Services”) offered by Cordoniq, Inc. (or its successors or assigns) (“we”, “our”, or “us”). If you are a Customer (defined below), these Terms govern your access and use of our Services.
Please read these terms carefully to ensure you understand each provision. These Terms contain a jury trial waiver provision and a mandatory arbitration provision.
If you access or use the Services, you acknowledge your understanding of the then-current Terms and agree to the Terms on behalf of Customer. Please make sure you have the necessary authority to enter into the Terms on behalf of Customer before proceeding.
1. General Provisions
1.1. Customers, Authorized Users, and Customer Content
“Customer” or “you” is either you, if you are an individual entering into the Terms on your own behalf, or the organization that you represent in agreeing to the Terms. If your account is being set up by someone who is not formally affiliated with a business entity or other organization, Customer is the individual creating the account. If you signed up using your corporate email domain or are otherwise accessing the Services on behalf of a business entity or other organization, the business entity or other organization on whose behalf you signed up is the Customer. By signing up on behalf of your business entity or other organization, you represent and warrant that you have all right, power, and authority to bind such entity or organization to the Terms.
Individuals authorized by Customer to access the Services (each an “Authorized User”) may submit content or information to the Services, which includes Personal Data (defined below) and User Content (defined below) (“Customer Content”), and Customer will have the sole right and responsibility for managing your use of it. Customer will be solely responsible for all of the acts and omissions of its Authorized Users in relation to the Services and the Terms. The Services are not intended for and should not be used by anyone under the age of 13. Customer must ensure that all Authorized Users are over 13 years old.
Customer will (a) inform Authorized Users of all Customer policies and practices that are relevant to their use of the Services and of any settings that may impact the processing of Customer Content; and (b) obtain all rights, permissions or consents from Authorized Users and other Customer personnel that are necessary to grant the rights and licenses in the Terms and for the lawful use and transmission of Customer Content and the operation of the Services.
A subscription allows Customer and its Authorized Users to access the Services. A subscription may be procured on a trial basis through email@example.com or via a separate agreement entered into between Customer and us or one of our authorized resellers. Subscriptions commence when we make them available to Customer and continue for the term specified in the Services or in the separate agreement with Customer, as applicable (the “Subscription Period”).
1.3. Beta Products
Occasionally, we look for beta testers to help us test our new features. These features will be identified as “beta” or “pre-release,” or words or phrases with similar meanings (each, a “Beta Product”). Beta Products are made available on an “as is,” and “as available” basis and, to the extent permitted under applicable law, without any warranties or contractual commitments we make for other Services.
Customer and its Authorized Users may choose to, or we may invite them to, submit comments or ideas about the Services, including without limitation about how to improve the Services or our products (“Ideas”). By submitting any Idea, Customer agrees that its disclosure is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction and will not place us under any fiduciary or other obligation, and that we are free to use the Idea without any additional compensation, whether to Customer, the Authorized User, or anyone else, and/or to disclose the Idea on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone. Customer further acknowledges that, by acceptance of the submission, we do not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to us, or developed by our personnel, or obtained from sources other than Customer or its Authorized Users.
2. Services Usage and Restrictions
2.1. Our License to Customer
(a) Ownership of the Services, Documentation, and Company Data
We own and will continue to own our Services and Documentation, including all related intellectual property and other proprietary rights related thereto. Further, Customer acknowledges and agrees that we may collect data relating to Customer’s and its Authorized Users’ usage of the Services, including but not limited to technical logs, data regarding the usage of specific features of the Services, user preference information, bug reports and error events (“Usage Data”) and collect, analyze, and use data derived from User Content that has been aggregated and/or anonymized such that it does not identify Customer or any identifiable individual person (“Derivative Data” and, collectively with Usage Data, “Company Data”). All Company Data will be owned solely and exclusively by us and, for purposes of clarity, you agree that we may use the Company Data in perpetuity for any purpose permitted by applicable law.
We may, from time to time, make available certain third-party products and services, including but not limited to open source software (“Third-Party Products”) for use in connection with the Services. Such Third-Party Products may be made available under separate or additional terms and conditions, including but not limited to open source licenses, which we will make available to you as necessary.
(b) Licenses to the Services and Documentation
During the Subscription Period, we grant the Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use, and to permit Authorized Users to access and use the Services, in accordance with the Terms, for the Customer’s own internal business purposes.
To the extent that we may make downloadable software components available, via app stores or other channels, as part of the Services, we grant to Customer a non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, limited license for Customer and its Authorized Users to use the object code version of these components, but solely as necessary to use the Services during the Subscription Period. Minor updates, bug fixes, and the like to such downloadable software components will be included under this license for the duration of the subscription.
From time to time we may make available product documentation for the Services (the “Documentation”) via a method of our choosing (e.g., via the Services). During the Subscription Period, we grant to Customer a non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, limited license for Customer and its Authorized Users to use the Documentation to support Customer’s and its Authorized Users’ use of the Services.
All rights and licenses granted herein are subject to you and your Authorized Users’ full compliance with all of the terms and conditions of the Terms. All rights in the Services and Documentation not expressly granted herein are expressly reserved by us.
2.2. Customer’s Licenses to Us
(a) Ownership of Customer Content
As between us on the one hand, and Customer and any Authorized Users on the other, Customer will own all Customer Content, including, for purposes of clarity, Personal Data and User Content.
(b) License to User Content
With respect to that portion of Customer Content that consists of videos, images, music, comments, questions, documents, spreadsheets, and any other content submitted, posted, or otherwise made available by Customer and its Authorized Users through the Services (“User Content”), by submitting, posting, storing, or otherwise making such User Content available through the Services, Customer grants, and represents and warrants that it has all rights necessary to grant (including without limitation any necessary consents and authorizations from individual persons identified in the User Content and licenses from third-parties whose content is included in the User Content), to us a royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, translate, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such User Content, and the names, voice, and/or likeness contained in the User Content, in whole or in part, and in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, solely for use in connection with our provision of the Services as described in the Terms and our product documentation.
To the extent permitted under applicable law, we take no responsibility and assume no liability for any User Content that Customer or any Authorized User or third-party submits, posts, or otherwise makes available through the Services. As between Customer and us, Customer shall be fully responsible for the User Content and the consequences of submitting, posting, or otherwise making it available via the Services, and Customer acknowledges and agrees that we are acting only as a passive conduit for Customer’s and its Authorized Users’ online distribution of such User Content.
2.3. Responsibilities for Customer Content
We are not responsible for the content of any Customer Content or the way Customer or its Authorized Users choose to use the Services to store or process any Customer Content. Customer represents and agrees that Customer is solely responsible for (i) providing notices and obtaining consents as legally required from its Authorized Users for the collection, use, processing and transfer of Customer Content in connection with the Services; and (ii) ensuring compliance with all laws in all jurisdictions that may apply to Customer Content provided hereunder, including but not limited to all applicable international, federal, state, provincial and local laws, rules, and regulations relating to data privacy and security. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, Customer may not submit any Customer Content that includes a social security number, passport number, driver’s license number, or similar identifier, credit card or debit card number, or any other information which may be subject to specific data privacy and security laws including, but not limited to, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HiTECH), the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA),or the GDPR or any other data which is considered to be sensitive or which could give rise to notification obligations under data breach notification laws. We do not make any representations as to the adequacy of the Services to process your Customer Content or to satisfy any legal or compliance requirements which may apply to your Customer Content, other than as described herein.
2.4. Use of the Services
Customer must comply with the Terms and ensure that its Authorized Users comply with the Terms. We may review conduct for compliance purposes, but we have no obligation to do so. If we believe there is a violation of the Terms that can be remedied by Customer’s removal of certain Customer Content, we will, in most cases, ask Customer to take direct action rather than intervene. However, to the extent legally permissible, we reserve the right to take further appropriate action, when we deem it reasonably appropriate if Customer does not take appropriate action, or if we believe there is a credible risk of harm to us, the Services, Authorized Users, or any third parties.
2.5. Acceptable Use
