Your use of our product (“Parative”) made available through our website and mobile applications is subject to the terms of this legal agreement (this “Agreement”) between you and Parlay App, Inc. as amended from time to time.
Parative is software as a service (SAAS) services featuring software that manages the relationship that digital product teams have with their customers, namely, tracking user engagement, and to enable collaboration, input, viewing, commenting and responding to information, feedback and suggestions.
In this document, “we” or “us” means Parlay App, Inc., a Delaware corporation; “you” means the company or entity utilizing Parative; “both of us” means both you and us; and “End User” means an individual end user of Parative. Certain other capitalized words have the meanings given them in [Section 14] .
You acquire rights to use Parative subject to this Agreement by submission of a Purchase Order, and payment of amounts due under the Purchase Order, specifying the type, quantity and Subscription Term of Parative, as a result of which you are entitled to the rights set forth in this Agreement. No Purchase Order is valid or creates any rights under this Agreement until accepted by us. We reserve the right to reject any Purchase Order for any reason or no reason.
We provide you with a variety of items through Parative. Parative may include certain communications from us, such as service announcements, and administrative messages, and that these communications are considered part of the use of Parative and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Parative shall be subject to this Agreement. You are responsible for obtaining access to Parative and that access may involve third party fees (such as internet service provider or airtime charges), and you are responsible for those fees. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access Parative.
You may use Parative only for your and your affiliates’ respective internal business purposes, and not for resale. You may not access Parative by any means other than through interfaces that are provided by us for use in accessing Parative.
You may receive or create a password and account designation upon completing the registration process for Parative. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account designation, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You must (a) promptly notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any occurrence that jeopardizes the confidentiality, integrity, or security of your password or account of which you are aware, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
You agree to pay all charges, recurring fees, applicable taxes and other charges (collectively herein “Charges”) incurred by you, subject to your prior approval, at the rates in effect for the billing period in which those charges are incurred. Charges may include among other things, fees for access based on usage of Parative. All payments are non-refundable. We may change rates or institute new charges that apply to a renewal Subscription Term, in which case we will inform you at least thirty (30) days prior to the renewal date.
For most billing plans we will invoice annually, but some charges are billed on a different schedule. You are responsible for all charges actually incurred, including applicable taxes and purchases made by you or anyone who is using an authorized user account that you have caused to be created or for which you have otherwise indicated your agreement to be responsible for payment.
Initial payments for agreed upon usage are normally prepaid. Payments for additional usage are due prior to commencement of such usage. If fees due for your account are over thirty (30) days delinquent, your account (and accordingly use of Parative) may be suspended or canceled at our sole discretion. If your account is suspended, regular charges continue to accrue until you cancel your account. You agree to pay all sales and use taxes, duties, or levies which are required by law.
You should let us know about any billing problems or discrepancies within 90 days after they first appear on your account statement. If you do not bring them to our attention within 90 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.
All currency references are in U.S. dollars. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities. You, and not us, are responsible for any such taxes, levies, or duties related to your transactions, excluding only our United States federal or state income taxes.

We are not required to hold such feedback in confidence, and such feedback may be used by us for any purpose without obligation of any kind; provided, that we will not disclose the source of specific feedback without your consent; and nothing in this Agreement restricts the use by you of such feedback or ideas that you provide to us.

8.1 As used in this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means all proprietary, non-public information disclosed by a party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”), directly or indirectly, which, (a) if in written, graphic, machine-readable or other tangible form, is marked as “confidential” or “proprietary,” (b) if disclosed orally or by demonstration, is identified at the time of initial disclosure as confidential and is confirmed in writing to the Receiving Party to be “confidential” or “proprietary” within thirty (30) days of such disclosure, or (c) reasonably appears to be confidential or proprietary because of the circumstances of disclosure and the nature of the information itself, including the End User Data, terms of this Agreement business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product designs, and business processes of either party.
8.2. “Confidential Information” does not include information that:
(a) is known publicly at the time of the disclosure by the Disclosing Party or becomes known publicly after disclosure through no fault of the Receiving Party;
(b) is known to the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure by the Disclosing Party due to previous receipt from a source that wasn’t bound by confidentiality obligations to the Disclosing Party at that time;

8.3. The Receiving Party shall not (a) use the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party except to exercise its rights and perform its obligations under this Agreement or (b) disclose such Confidential Information to any third party, except those of its employees, service providers, agents, and representatives who are subject to confidentiality obligations at least as stringent as the obligations set forth herein and have a “need to know” in order to carry out the purpose of this Agreement. The Receiving Party shall use at least the same degree of care it uses to protect its own confidential information of like nature, but not less than a reasonable degree of care, to protect the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.
8.4. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent such disclosure is required by law or order of a court or other governmental authority; provided that the Receiving Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly notify the Disclosing Party prior to such disclosure to enable the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent or restrict such disclosure.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in response to any such Data Notice, we may furnish your contact information and request the Data Notice be submitted directly to you. Upon written request from you, we shall promptly (and in any event within ten (10) business days) provide you access to, or amend, correct, or delete Personal Information in our custody or control.

Both of us acknowledge and agree that the collection and disclosure of Personal Information to the other does not constitute, and is not the intent of either party for such disclosure to constitute, a Sale of Personal Information.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, our confidentiality obligations under Section 8 shall continue with respect to End User Data and Confidential Information.
(ii) Sections 3, 4, 5(c), and 6 through 16 survive termination in accordance with their terms.
