End User Terms and Conditions

Last Updated: September 7, 2021

These User Terms of Use are entered into between Atexto LLC. (“Atexto,” “we,” or “us”) and the individual registering for an account on our Software Platform (“Users”, “you,” or “your”) as of the Effective Date. BY CLICKING “AGREE,” OR BY OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms and conditions, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws.

If you are a Customer setting up an account, the Software and Services Agreement governs your access to and use of the Services.

1. Customer’s Account

If you sign up for an account with an email address provisioned by your company or organization (“Customer”), you are an authorized end-user and you must use the Services in compliance with the Customer’s terms and policies. The customer has separately agreed to the Software and Services Agreement or entered into a written agreement with us (in either case, the “MSA”) that permitted the Customer to create an account and invite you and others to join. The MSA contains Atexto’s commitment to delivering the Services to the Customer, and the Customer’s obligations when using the Services. When you submit digital files, data, or machine learning models (“Customer Materials”) to the Atexto API or otherwise provide to Atexto to facilitate Atexto’s provision of the Services, you acknowledge and agree that the Customer Materials are owned by the Customer.

2. Relationship between Atexto, Customer, and User.

AS BETWEEN ATECTO AND CUSTOMER, THE USER AGREES THAT IT IS SOLELY THE CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO (A) INFORM THE USER OF ANY OBLIGATIONS OR RESTRICTIONS REQUIRED TO USE THE SERVICES, (B) OBTAIN ANY RIGHTS, PERMISSIONS, OR CONSENTS FROM THE USER THAT ARE NECESSARY FOR THE LAWFUL USE OF CUSTOMER MATERIALS AND THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES, (C) ENSURE THAT THE TRANSFER AND PROCESSING OF CUSTOMER MATERIALS UNDER THE MSA IS LAWFUL, AND (D) RESPOND TO AND RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH ANY USER RELATING TO THE SERVICES, CUSTOMER MATERIALS, OR CUSTOMER’S FAILURE TO FULFILL THESE OBLIGATIONS.

3. User Accounts and Registration

To access most features of the Service, you must register for an account. When you register for an account, you may be required to provide us with some “personal data” (as defined our Privacy Policy, such as your name, email address, or other contact information), and you agree that the information you provide to us is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up-to-date at all times. When you register, you will be asked to provide a password, and you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. Please note that User accounts are subject to the Customer’s control, and your Admin (as defined in our Privacy Policy) may be able to access, disclose, restrict, or remove information in or from your Atexto account. They may also be able to restrict or terminate your access to your Atexto account. If you believe that your account is no longer secure, then you must immediately notify us at support@atexto.com.

4. Use License

Subject to your complete and ongoing compliance with these Terms, Atexto hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, worldwide right to access and use the Services, solely with supported browsers through the Internet for purposes authorized by Customer. Nothing in these Terms will be construed to grant you any right to transfer or assign rights to access or use the Services.

5. Reservation of Rights

All rights not expressly granted to you or the Customer are reserved by Atexto and its licensors. You further acknowledge and agree that, as between you, Atexto, and Customer, Atexto owns all rights, titles, and interests in and to the Atexto Technology, including all intellectual property rights therein. The visual interfaces, graphics, design, compilation, information, data, computer code (including source code or object code), products, software, services, and all other elements of the Atexto Technology are protected by intellectual property and other laws.

6. Restrictions

You may not permit the Services to be used by or for the benefit of unauthorized third parties. You may not (i) modify or make derivative works based upon the Services; (ii) reverse engineer the Service or access the Services in order to (a) build a competitive product or service, or (b) build a product using similar features, functions, or graphics of the Services, or (c) copy any features, functions, or graphics of the Services.

7. Feedback

If you choose to provide input and suggestions regarding problems with or proposed modifications or improvements to the Service (“Feedback”), then you hereby grant Atexto an unrestricted, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, fully paid, royalty-free right to exploit the Feedback in any manner and for any purpose, including to improve the Services and create other products and services.

8. Confidential Information

Atexto may disclose business or technical information to you under this Agreement which is confidential, including Atexto Technology (“Confidential Information”). User will use reasonable care (a) not to use the Confidential Information for any purpose not permitted under these Terms, and (b) except as permitted by Atexto, not disclose the Confidential Information to any third party except Customer. Confidential Information will not include any information that (i) is or becomes public through no fault of User, (ii) was known to User prior to receipt, (iii) is obtained by User from a third party, not under an obligation of confidentiality, and (iv) is independently developed by User without the use of the Confidential Information.

9. Third-Party Software

The Service may include or incorporate third-party software components that are generally available free of charge under licenses granting recipients broad rights to copy, modify, and distribute those components (“Third Party Components”). Although the Service is provided to you subject to these Terms, nothing in these Terms prevents, restricts, or is intended to prevent or restrict you from obtaining Third Party Components under the applicable third-party licenses or to limit your use of the Third-Party Components under those third party licenses. The Service may also contain links to third-party websites. Such linked websites are not under Atexto’s control, and Atexto is not responsible for their content.

10. Monitoring Content

Atexto does not control and does not have any obligation to monitor: (a) Customer Materials; (b) any content made available by third parties; or (c) the use of the Service by its users. You acknowledge and agree that Atexto reserves the right to, and may from time to time, monitor any and all information transmitted or received through the Service for operational or other purposes. If at any time Atexto chooses to monitor the content, Atexto still assumes no responsibility or liability for the content or any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of content. During monitoring, information may be examined, recorded, copied, and used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

11. Term and Termination

These Terms are effective beginning when you accept these Terms or first access or use the Service, and ending when Customer’s subscription for you expires or terminates, or your access to the Services is terminated as described below (the “Term”). If you violate any provision of these Terms, your authorization to access the Service and these Terms automatically terminate. In addition, Atexto or Customer may, at its sole discretion, terminate these Terms or your account, or suspend or terminate your access to the Service, at any time for any reason or no reason, with or without notice. You may terminate your account and these Terms at any time by contacting Customer or support@atexto.com. Upon termination of these Terms: (a) your license rights will terminate and you must immediately cease all use of the Service, and (b) you will no longer be authorized to access your account of the Service. Sections 5, 6, 7,8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17 will survive.

12. Disclaimer

THE SERVICE AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT ON AND AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. Atexto makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights, and any warranty arising out of course of dealing, usage, or trade. Atexto does not warrant that the Service or any portion of the Service, or any materials or content offered through the Service, are accurate, complete, or current, or will be uninterrupted, secure, or free of errors, viruses, or other harmful components; and Atexto does not warrant that any of those issues will be corrected. Atexto may make changes to the Services at any time without notice, including by limiting or discontinuing certain features of the Services. Atexto does not, however, make any commitment to update the Services. Atexto will have no liability for any change to the Service or any suspension or termination of your access to or use of the Service.

THE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS, AND DISCLAIMS IN THIS SECTION APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Atexto does not disclaim any warranty or other right that Atexto is prohibited from disclaiming under applicable law.

13. Indemnification

User will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Atexto from and against all damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising from a third-party claim arising out of or related to User’s use of the Services.

14. Limitations

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL YOU OR ATEXTO BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF DATA OR PROFIT, OR DUE TO BUSINESS INTERRUPTION,) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR THE MATERIALS ON THE SERVICES, EVEN IF NOTIFIED ORALLY OR IN WRITING OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF ATEXTO TO YOU FOR ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICE OR OTHERWISE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, IS LIMITED TO $100. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

Each provision of these Terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended to and does allocate the risks between the parties under these Terms. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of these Terms. The limitations in this Section 14 will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpose.

15. Terms of Use Modifications

Atexto may revise these Terms at any time without notice; provided that, if we make any material changes to these Terms, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you. By continuing to use Atexto, you are agreeing to be bound by the then-current version of these Terms.

16. Governing Law

Any claim relating to the Services or these Terms will be governed by the State of California, without regard to conflicts of laws rules, or the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods. The courts or tribunals located in the applicable venue of the MSA will have exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms. Each party hereby consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts or tribunals. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under these Terms, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorney’s fees.

17. Entire Agreement

These Terms, including any terms incorporated by reference into these Terms, constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions in these Terms and any pages referenced in these Terms, the terms of these Terms will first prevail; provided, however, that if there is a conflict or inconsistency between the MSA and these Terms, the terms of the MSA will first prevail, followed by the provisions in these Terms, and then followed by the pages referenced in these Terms (e.g., the Privacy Policy). The customer will be responsible for notifying Users of those conflicts or inconsistencies and until such time the terms set forth herein will be binding.
