These Terms of Use (“Terms“) govern your use of the software, website and services (the “Service”) provided by Entegrys Incorporated (“Entegrys”). The section below entitled, Acceptable Use, outlines our expectations with respect to your behavior when using the Service. Our Privacy Policy explains the way we collect and use your information. By using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms and by our Privacy Policy. If you are using our Service on behalf of an organization or entity (“Organization”), then you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that Organization and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind the Organization to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” refers to that Organization.

Entegrys retains ownership of all Content except for the information you add to the Content or collect from others. However, by uploading your own or collected information onto the Service, you are granting us a license to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, publish, transmit, host and display that Content for the purpose of

  1. providing you the Service and associated support; and
  2. analyzing and improving the Service.

We reserve the right to remove Content on the Service that violates these Terms, including the Acceptable Use section below, or that we otherwise reasonably believe may create liability for Entegrys.

Administrator Access to Your Content
When you sign up for or otherwise use our Service (e.g. by accepting an invitation to contribute to an assessment), you associate an email address with your account. If you use an email address provided to you by a third party entity of which you are a part (such as yourname@youremployer.com or yourname@nonprofit.org) (each an “Entity”) you hereby grant that Entity and its administrator(s) permission to access, use, download, export, disclose, share, restrict and/or remove Content that you have associated with the email address that includes their domain. You acknowledge and understand that an Entity may elect to utilize one or more third-party applications in connection with their use of the Service and that, by associating Content with an email address that includes an Entity’s domain, you are granting permission to have such Content shared with such third-party application(s). You also acknowledge and understand that an Entity may restrict or terminate your access to Content associated with the email address that includes their domain.

Your Use of Entegrys Software
As part of the Service, we provide online client software (the “Software”) for your use in connection with the Service. This Software may update automatically and if such Software is designed for use on a specific mobile or desktop operating system, then a compatible system is required for use. So long as you comply with these Terms, we grant you a limited, nonexclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access the Service; provided, however, that this license does not constitute a sale of the Software or any copy thereof, and as between Entegrys and You, Entegrys retains all right, title and interest in the Software.

Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL ENTEGRYS, ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE, WHETHER OR NOT ENTEGRYS HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. ENTEGRYS’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATED TO THE SERVICE SHALL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF $100 CANADIAN OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO ENTEGRYS IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE CLAIM GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY.

Dispute Resolution
Informal Efforts – You agree that prior to filing any claim against Entegrys relating to or arising out of these Terms you will first contact us at support@entegrys.com to provide us with an opportunity to resolve the issue in an informal manner.
Formal Recourse – Either you or Entegrys may assert a claim, if it qualifies, in small claims court in Saint John, NB, Canada. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Service or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secrets, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in the informal dispute resolution process.
No Class Actions – ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED.
Judicial Forum – You and Entegrys agree that any judicial proceedings will be brought in the provincial courts in Saint John, NB, and both parties consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.

Governing Law
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the Province of New Brunswick, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.

Data Transfer
In connection with providing you the Service, Entegrys may transfer, store and process your Content in Canada or in any other country in which Entegrys or its agents maintain facilities. By using the Service you consent to this transfer, processing and storage of your Content.

Entire Agreement; Severability; Waiver
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Entegrys concerning the Service and replace any prior or contemporaneous agreements, terms or conditions applicable to your use of the Service. If a provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting as closely as possible our original intent. Entegrys’ failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of its right to do so later.

Assignment
These Terms and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by us without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment by you will be null and void.

We may provide you with legal notices and notices related to your account via email using the email address associated with your account.
