    3. Data.  Customer agrees to comply with all laws, regulations and rules regarding the use, confidentiality and security of personally identifiable information (collectively, “Personal Information”), to the extent any such law, regulation or rule is applicable to its performance under this Agreement.

 

 

The Services Data (other than Analytics relating thereto) is, as between Pondr and Customer, the property of Customer.  Customer (on behalf of itself and its Users) grants Pondr a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free and fully paid right and license (a) to access, copy, store, process, distribute, transmit, display, and otherwise use the Services Data as necessary for purposes of providing and improving the Services to Customer and its Users (including Supervisory Access Users and Third Party Partner Users, each as defined below) and enabling the operation of the Platform, and otherwise as necessary to perform its obligations hereunder, and (b) to use the Customer’s trademarks, service marks, and logos as required to provide the Services.  

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Customer (on behalf of itself and its Users) acknowledges and agrees that Pondr may: (a) collect, use, and analyze Analytics, and Pondr may (during and after the term of this Agreement)  (i) use Analytics to improve and enhance the Services and for other development, diagnostic, and corrective purposes in connection with the Services and any other Pondr Properties, and (ii) disclose, sublicense, market, sell, and otherwise use and commercially exploit Analytics in aggregate or other de-identified form in connection with its business; (b) disclose and provide access to Services Data (including Services Data that contains Personal Information or is otherwise associated with individual Users), whether or not aggregated or de-identified, (i) to certain other Users who have been granted supervisory or other special access by Customer (“Supervisory Access Users”), who may access, use, copy, modify, prepare derivatives, and share with other Customer or other Supervisory Access Users  such Services Data in connection with the Service, and (ii) to certain third party partners of Pondr or Customer who have been granted special access by Customer (“Third Party Partner Users”), who may access, use, copy, modify, prepare derivatives, and share with Customer Supervisory Access Users, such Services Data in connection with the Service; (c) use Services Data to protect the rights, property or safety of Pondr or others or to investigate or enforce suspected breaches of this Agreement; and (d) use Services Data as otherwise provided in this Agreement or as otherwise mutually agreed upon by the parties.

Customer acknowledges and agrees that once Pondr has granted access rights to the Services Data to a User, Supervisory Access User, and/or a Third Party Partner User, Pondr has no control over the uses and disclosures that the User, Supervisory Access User, and/or Third Party Partner User makes of Services Data, and Customer and such individuals or entities may be subject to legal or regulatory obligations to retain and protect such information and make such information available to governmental authorities and others as required by applicable law or regulation.  In any event, but especially in cases of potential fraud, misuse or abuse of the Services, Pondr reserves the right, in its sole judgment, to revoke, remove, cancel or deny continued access by any User, Supervisory Access User, or Third Party Partner User to any Services Data.

  1. Third Party Software.  Customer may not upload or use any software on or in connection with the Platform that has not been authorized in writing by Pondr. If such third party software has been authorized by Pondr, Pondr disclaims all warranties with respect to such software, assumes no liability regarding the use of such software, and will not furnish any support or services relating to such software, unless otherwise agreed upon by Pondr and the applicable third party in a separate written agreement.  Customer may have to enter into separate written agreements with the applicable third parties for use of such third-party software, and in so doing, Customer will comply with all such agreements.  Pondr may also make available optional services provided by third parties.  Customer will comply with and, upon request, execute, any agreements that may be required for the use of such services. Additionally, Customer’s use of the Services or of such third-party products or services will constitute Customer’s agreement to be bound by the terms of all licensing, subscription and similar agreements relating to such use.]

  2. Conversion of User Accounts.  If this Agreement is terminated by either party for any reason, Pondr may, at its option, convert any or all User Accounts into unpaid individual Pondr accounts.

  3. Communications with Users. Customer understands and agrees that Pondr may need to communicate directly with Users to provide access to the Platform and Services and authorizes Pondr to do so. At Customer’s request, Pondr may send communications to the Users through any contact method provided by Customer or any such User.

  3. GENERAL PROVISIONS. 

    1. Entire Agreement.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all prior negotiations, understandings or agreements between the parties regarding the subject matter of this Agreement.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which will be an original, but taken together constituting one and the same instrument.  Execution of a facsimile copy (including PDF or other electronic copy) will have the same force and effect as execution of an original, and a facsimile or digital signature will be deemed an original and valid signature.  Any additional, different or inconsistent terms on any related purchase order, confirmation or similar form, even if signed by the parties hereafter, will have no effect on this Agreement.  Except as expressly provided herein, no change, consent or waiver of this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against which enforcement is sought.  The failure of either party to enforce its rights hereunder any time for any period will not be construed as a waiver of such rights, and the exercise of one right or remedy will not be deemed a waiver of any other right or remedy.  If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.  

    2. Governing Law.  This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, USA, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
