Except as expressly set out in this Agreement, all rights (including all intellectual property rights) in and to the Services are, and will at all times remain, vested in TagLynx and its licensors.
2.2. Customer Account and Registration.
In order to use many of the Services offered you must become a registered user and establish an account (“Account”) and receive or establish a password (“Password”) which can be used by each of Your employees and consultants who are authorized by You to use the Service on Your behalf. In registering You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about Yourself as prompted by our registration form (the “Registration Data”) and to maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.
If You provide any Registration Data that is untrue, inaccurate, not complete or incomplete, or TagLynx has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, TagLynx has the right to suspend or terminate Your Account and to refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof) by You. You are responsible for all activities that occur under Your Account and Your Password.
2.3. Authorized Users.
Your use of the Services includes use by the following (known collectively as the “Authorized Users”);(i) the Your employees; (ii) any contractors or other staff who are working for You; and (iii) any other person working with, or on behalf, of You; provided that: (a) such Authorized User is accessing and using the Services exclusively on Your behalf; and(b) You will at all times be responsible for the actions and omissions of each Authorized User as if such actions and omissions were Your own. You agree to notify TagLynx immediately of any unauthorized use of Your Account or Password or any other breach of security and to exit from Your Account at the end of each session. You agree that You are responsible for any losses arising out of the unauthorized use of Your Account.
Only Authorized Users are permitted to access and use the Services and TagLynx reserves the right to audit such use. You will be responsible for ensuring the security and confidentiality of all log-on identifiers, including usernames and passwords, assigned to, or created by, You or any of Your Authorized Users in order to access or use the Services (an “ID”). You accept that You will be solely responsible for all access and use of the Services that occur under Your ID and will promptly notify TagLynx upon becoming aware of any unauthorized access to or use of the Services.
You will provide all reasonable assistance to TagLynx to bring an end to such unauthorized access or use. You will not and will not permit any third party to: (i) access or use the Services (which includes operating any form of facility on behalf of any third party or operating a software bureau or similar service) or; (ii) copy, modify, adapt or create derivative works from any applications or functionalities made available as part of the Services or attempt to discover or gain access to the source code for such software or reverse engineer, modify, decrypt, extract, disassemble or decompile such software except to the extent that You are permitted to do so under applicable law in circumstances under which TagLynx is not lawfully entitled to restrict, prevent or limit the same; or (iii) attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Services and, in particular, must not attempt to circumvent security, license control or other protection mechanisms, or tamper with, hack into or otherwise disrupt the Services, software, website, computer system or other device used in connection with the provision of the Services; or (iv) cause or permit any robot or any automated process to act upon or interact with the Services; or (v) obscure, amend or remove any copyright notice, trade mark or other proprietary marking on, or visible during the operation or use of the Services.
As between the parties, You will remain the owner of all rights (including all intellectual property rights) in all data, information or material provided or made available by You to TagLynx through access to or use of the Services and will exclude Statistics (“Content”). You grant TagLynx a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide and royalty-free license, to use, reproduce, distribute, publish and publicly display the Content and the right to modify, adapt, translate, create derivative works from and/or incorporate the same into other works in any form, media or technology (whether now known or later developed), solely for the purpose of providing the Services and performing its obligations under this Agreement. This license includes the right for TagLynx to assign and/or sub-license the same to any of its affiliates or sub-license to licensors, but only to the extent required by TagLynx to provide the Services and perform its obligations under this Agreement. The term Statistics means any anonymous data, and expressly excluding personally identifiable data, that TagLynx derives through its website and performance of the Services.
For the avoidance of doubt, TagLynx may use Statistics for the modification, enhancement, and improvement of the Services, and may use Statistics for the marketing or promotion of TagLynx, the Services or any future product or service offering, provided any such use of Statistics cannot reasonably be identified as Your aggregate information alone.
The Services are primarily for the management of information. TagLynx reserves the right to make enhancements or other modifications to the Services from time to time, without materially detracting from their overall functionality.
4.2. Suspension of Services.
TagLynx may temporarily suspend (in whole or part) access to the Services: (i) for the purpose of performing maintenance and/or of updating the Services (whether on a scheduled or unscheduled basis); (ii) due to a security threat or prejudicial use of the Services (perceived or actual); (iii) to comply with any applicable law or the requirement of any internet or, if applicable, telecommunication networks service provider upon whom TagLynx relies for the provision of the Services; or (iv) to address, remedy or prevent any breach of this Agreement by You, provided always that TagLynx will use its reasonable endeavors to inform You by email (or where not possible, verbally by telephone with a confirmatory email) of any such interruption as soon as reasonably practicable beforehand (except in the case of emergency or where prevented by applicable law or regulations); and to minimize any period of interruption and restore the Services as soon as reasonably possible, except where the cause of suspension arises from Your breach and You have failed to take the necessary steps to remedy the breach.
4.3. Use of Marks.
You grant to TagLynx a royalty free, non-exclusive worldwide license, to use, display and publish any of Your trademarks or logos as necessary for TagLynx to provide the Services. Any use of such trademarks by TagLynx must comply with any reasonable usage guidelines which TagLynx receives written notice of from You from time to time. TagLynx acknowledges and agrees that, as between TagLynx and You, You are the sole owner of all rights in Your trademarks, and any goodwill arising from TagLynx’ use of such trademarks will inure solely to the benefit of You.
4.4. Third Party Content.
Certain information and other content appearing in the Services may be the material of third party licensors and suppliers to TagLynx (“Third Party Content”). Third Party Content does not include Your Content. The Third Party Content is, in each case, the copyrighted and/or trademarked work of the creator/licensor. You agree to only display the Third Party Content on Your computer or other display device solely for Your personal use or internal business use. You acknowledge and agree that under these terms alone You have no right to download, cache, reproduce, modify, display, edit, alter or enhance any of the Third Party Content in any manner unless You have permission from the owner of the Third Party Content.
5. Fees and Payment
5.1. Subscription Fees.
You will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee (“Subscription Fee”) at the time You create Your Account and select Your Services subscription (“Service Commencement Date”). All Subscription Fees will be billed to the credit card or PayPal account You designate during the registration process. If You want to designate a different credit card or if there is a change in Your credit card or PayPal account status, You must change Your information online at http://app.taglynx.com or send an e-mail to email@example.com .
By authorizing TagLynx to charge Your credit card for Services, You further authorize TagLynx to continue to charge Your credit card (or a replacement card, if the credit-issuing entity informs TagLynx that a replacement card has been issued) for all fees associated with the Services, including renewals. You must contact TagLynx if You do not wish to renew Your Services subscription; if You do not contact TagLynx, the Subscription Fee for Services that You selected will automatically renew for the same subscription term that You initially selected (e.g. annual or monthly), at TagLynx’s then current Subscription Fee for such Services.
5.2. Subscription Termination and Refunds.
You may terminate your Subscription at any time. If You have a monthly subscription, the Subscription will terminate at the end of the then current monthly term and not renew. No refund will be issued for any unused part of the month in which You terminate a monthly Subscription. If You have an annual Subscription, the Subscription will terminate at the end of the Subscription month in which You give notice of termination, and any Subscription Fee You have paid in advance for the remaining months in the annual term, less a fee equal to the difference between the monthly fee under the annual subscription and the monthly subscription for the months actually used, will be refunded to You within thirty (30) days after the date of termination. For purposes of illustration only, if a monthly subscription is $X greater than the monthly cost under an annual subscription, and You terminate your annual subscription after three months, the refund will be equal to the remaining nine months of the annual subscription fee, less 3 x $X for the three months actually used. You agree that You will make any cancellation request by way of a general request ticket that You submit through the TagLynx’s ticketing system.
In the event that You are using a PayPal account to make payments hereunder, You must also log in and cancel Your recurring payments through Your PayPal interface. Except as set forth above, Your Subscription Fee will be non-refundable. No refund will be given or issued if the Agreement is terminated by TagLynx for Your breach of the terms and conditions of the Agreement.
6. Confidential Information.
“Confidential Information” will mean confidential or other non-public proprietary information that is disclosed by either party to the other under this Agreement, including without limitation, software code and designs, hardware, product specifications and documentation, financial data, business, marketing and product plans, or technology, and information whether disclosed verbally or visually that is of a nature or disclosed in a context that a reasonable person would understand to be confidential or proprietary, and any information (which includes, without limitation, Your or an Authorized User’s name, address, phone number, email, incidents created, notes created, contact history, or communication history).
6.2. Obligations of Confidentiality.
Each party agrees that it will hold in strict confidence and not disclose the Confidential Information of the other party to any third party and to use the Confidential Information of the other party for no purpose other than the purposes expressly permitted by this Agreement. Each party will only permit access to the other party’s Confidential Information to those of its or its affiliates’ employees, contractors and advisors having a need to know and who have signed confidentiality agreements containing terms at least as restrictive as those contained in this Agreement or are otherwise bound legally to a duty of confidentiality.
Each party will maintain the confidentiality and prevent accidental or other loss or disclosure of any Confidential Information of the other party with at least the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care.
6.3. Exclusions from Obligations.
A party’s obligations of confidentiality under this Agreement will not apply to information which such party can document or show by other admissible evidence (i) is in the public domain or known in the industry without the breach of any agreement or fiduciary duty or the violation of any law, (ii) was known to the party prior to the time of disclosure without the breach of any agreement or fiduciary duty or the violation of any law, (iii) is proven by contemporaneous records to be independently developed by the party prior to receiving such Confidential Information. Further, Confidential Information does not include Statistics.
6.4. Legally Required Disclosure.
In the event either party is required to disclose, pursuant to a judicial order, a requirement of a governmental agency or by operation of law, any Confidential Information provided to it by the other party then such party will provide the other party written notice of any such requirement promptly after learning of any such requirement, and take commercially reasonable measures, at the expense of the party whose Confidential Information it is, to avoid or limit disclosure under such requirements and to obtain confidential treatment or a protective order and allow the other party to participate in the proceeding. Nothing in this section will waive the continuing obligation of confidentiality to any such information disclosed.
6.6. Injunctive Relief.
Each party recognizes and acknowledges that any use or disclosure of the Confidential Information of the other party in a manner inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement will cause the other party irreparable damage for which remedies at law may be inadequate. Accordingly, the non-breaching party will have the right to seek an immediate injunction in respect of any breach of these confidentiality obligations to obtain such relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this paragraph will not in any way limit the remedies in law or equity otherwise available to the non-breaching party.
6.7. Return of Confidential Information.
Upon written request by either party hereto, the other party will promptly return all documents and other tangible materials representing the requesting party’s Confidential Information and all copies thereof, except for any archived materials that are required to be retained by law or that are not easily retrievable from secured archival systems, or for records created in the ordinary course of business that are kept by a party for contract compliance and enforcement purposes subject to continuing confidentiality.
7. Authorized Users.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your password(s), registration data and for any and all activity that occurs under Your password(s). You agree to notify TagLynx immediately of any unauthorized use of Your password(s) or any other breach of security relating to the Site and the Services.
