  4. Confidentiality.
  • 12.1. Definition. “Confidential Information means any trade secrets or other information of ShortSave or you, whether of a technical, business, or other nature (such as Botdoc Content or your uploaded content), that is disclosed to the other party (“Recipient”) and that is marked “confidential,” or, whether or not marked, that a reasonable person would understand to be confidential given the circumstances of the disclosure.  Confidential Information does not include any information that: (a) was known to Recipient before receiving it from the disclosing party; (b) is independently developed by Recipient without use of or reference to any Confidential Information of the other party, as demonstrated by written records; (c) is acquired by Recipient from another source that did not receive it in confidence; or (d) is or becomes part of the public domain through no fault or action of Recipient.
  • 12.2. Restricted Use and Nondisclosure. During and after the Term, Recipient will: (a) use the Confidential Information of the other party solely for purposes that are consistent with the scope of this Agreement; (b) not disclose such Confidential Information to a third party, except on a need-to-know basis to its attorneys, auditors, and consultants who are under confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those contained herein; and (c) protect such Confidential Information from unauthorized use and disclosure to the same extent (but using no less than a reasonable degree of care) that it protects its own Confidential Information of a similar nature.
  • 12.3. Required Disclosure. If Recipient is required by law, court order, or a regulatory authority having jurisdiction over Recipient or the Confidential Information to disclose Confidential Information of the other party or the terms of this Agreement, Recipient will give prompt written notice to the other party before making the disclosure, unless prohibited from doing so by the legal or administrative process, and assist the disclosing party  to obtain where reasonably available an order protecting the Confidential Information from public disclosure.
  • 12.4. Ownership. Recipient acknowledges that, as between the parties, all Confidential Information it receives from the disclosing party, including all copies thereof in Recipient’s possession or control, in any media, is proprietary to and exclusively owned by the disclosing party.  Nothing in this Agreement grants Recipient any right, title or interest in or to any of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information.  Recipient’s incorporation of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information into any of its own materials will not render Confidential Information non-confidential.
  • 12.5. Remedies. Recipient acknowledges that any actual or threatened breach of this Section 11 may cause irreparable, non-monetary injury to the disclosing party, the extent of which may be difficult to ascertain.  Accordingly, the disclosing party is entitled to (but not required to) seek injunctive relief in addition to all remedies available to the disclosing party at law and/or in equity, to prevent or mitigate any breaches of this Agreement or damages that may otherwise result from those breaches.  Absent written consent of the disclosing party to the disclosure, Recipient, in the case of a breach of this Section 11, has the burden of proving that the disclosing party’s Confidential Information is not, or is no longer, confidential or a trade secret and that the disclosure does not otherwise violate this Section 11.
  • 12.6. Existing Obligations. The obligations in this Section 11 are in addition to, and supplement, each party’s obligations of confidentiality under applicable law and under any nondisclosure or other agreement between the parties.
  1. Miscellaneous.
  • 13.1. Relationship. At all times, the parties are independent actors, and are not the agents or representatives of the other.  This Agreement is not intended to create a joint venture, partnership, or franchise relationship, or give rise to any third party beneficiary.
  • 13.2. Assignability. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement, which include without limitation your API Key, without our prior written consent, which may be withheld in our sole discretion.  If consent is given, this Agreement will bind your successors and assigns.  Any attempt by you to transfer your rights, duties, or obligations under this Agreement without our prior written consent is void.  We may freely assign our rights, duties, and obligations under this Agreement.
  • 13.3. Notices. Except as otherwise permitted herein, any notice required or permitted to be given in accordance with this Agreement will be effective only if it is in writing and sent using: (a) email with read receipt requested, in the case of to ShortSave, to support@botdoc.io and in the case of to you, to the email address set forth in your Order Form, (b) certified or registered mail, or, (c) insured courier, to the appropriate party at the address set forth in your Order Form.  Either party may change its address for receipt of notice by providing notice to the other party in accordance with this Section 3.  Notices are deemed given upon confirmation of receipt if delivered using email, two business days following the date of mailing, or one business day following delivery to a courier.
  • 13.4. Force Majeure. Except for any payment obligations, neither party will be liable for failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement to the extent such failure is caused by a force majeure event (including acts of God, natural disasters, war, civil disturbance, action by governmental entity, strike, loss of telecommunications infrastructure, hacking and distributed denial of service attacks (provided that the affected party has in place reasonable cyber security measures to prevent and mitigate the same), and other causes beyond the party’s reasonable control).  The party affected by the force majeure event will provide notice to the other party within a commercially reasonable time and will use commercially reasonable efforts to resume performance as soon as practicable.  Obligations not performed due to a force majeure event will be performed as soon as reasonably possible when the force majeure event concludes.
  • 13.5. Mandatory Arbitration. Except as may otherwise be provided in this Agreement, to the maximum extent permitted by law, all disputes, controversies, claims, or demands of any kind or nature arising between the parties in connection with this Agreement or the Tools, whether at law or in equity or based upon common law or any federal or state statute, rule, or regulation will be resolved through binding arbitration.  Any arbitration commenced hereunder shall be initiated in Denver, Colorado and shall be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) from time to time in force.  The arbitration shall occur before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) that shall be selected in accordance with the rules of the AAA.  This submission and agreement to arbitrate shall be specifically enforceable.
  • 13.6. No Class Actions. You may only resolve disputes with ShortSave on an individual basis and you may not bring a claim against us in a class, consolidated, or representative action.  Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
  • 13.7. Governing Law; Venue. This Agreement will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the local laws of the State of Colorado, U.S.A., without reference to its choice of law rules to the contrary.  Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to mandatory arbitration, either party may seek any interim or preliminary injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in El Paso County, Colorado, as necessary to protect the party’s rights or property pending the completion of arbitration.  The parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in El Paso County, Colorado, U.S.A.
  • 13.8. Compliance with Laws.  You represent and warrant that your use of Botdoc will comply with all applicable laws and regulations.  If you’re located in the European Economic Area (EEA) or send to anyone in the EEA, you represent and warrant that in creating a User Account, sending or collecting information, you:  1) Have complied, and will comply, with all regulations, as well as data protection, electronic communication, and privacy laws that apply to the countries where you’re sending any form of communications through Botdoc. 2) Have collected, stored, used, and transferred all data relating to any individual in compliance with all data protection laws and regulations. You have the necessary permission to allow Botdoc to receive and process data and send communications to that individual on your behalf. 3) Agree to the Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”) at https://botdoc.io/data-processing-addendum/
  • 13.9. Waiver. The waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of this Agreement does not waive any other breach.  The failure of any party to insist on strict performance of any covenant or obligation in accordance with this Agreement will not be a waiver of such party’s right to demand strict compliance in the future, nor will the same be construed as a novation of this Agreement.
  • 13.10. Severability. If any part of this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the remaining portions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.  If any material limitation or restriction on the grant of any license provided to you under this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the license will immediately terminate.
  • 13.10. Entire Agreement. Except as expressly stated herein, this Agreement is the final and complete expression of the agreement between these parties regarding the Tools.  This Agreement supersedes all previous oral and written communications regarding these matters.
