We provide our System to our subscribers, which may include companies, authorized resellers, distributors, or others (each a “Subscriber”) pursuant to a Subscription Agreement between the Subscriber and us (the “Contract”). Each person whom our Subscriber authorizes to access or use the System is an Authorized User (“Authorized User”, “you,” “your”). The Contract governs our commitment to deliver the System to the Subscriber, who may then invite Authorized Users to access and use the System.

Your right to use the System is not transferable. Your username, password, or right given to you to obtain or access the System is not transferable.
Let us know immediately if you suspect unauthorized use of your account.
When you submit information to or otherwise interact with our System, the System will process that information (“Subscriber Data”). You acknowledge and agree that Subscriber Data is owned by Subscriber and the Contract provides Subscriber with control over that Subscriber Data.
AS BETWEEN ALTERITY SOLUTIONS AND SUBSCRIBER, YOU AGREE THAT IT IS SOLELY SUBSCRIBER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO (A) INFORM YOU AND ANY AUTHORIZED USERS OF ANY RELEVANT SUBSCRIBER POLICIES AND PRACTICES AND ANY SETTINGS THAT MAY IMPACT THE PROCESSING OF SUBSCRIBER DATA; (B) OBTAIN ANY RIGHTS, PERMISSIONS OR CONSENTS FROM YOU AND ANY AUTHORIZED USERS THAT ARE NECESSARY FOR THE LAWFUL USE OF SUBSCRIBER DATA AND THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES; (C) ENSURE THAT THE TRANSFER AND PROCESSING OF SUBSCRIBER DATA UNDER THE SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT IS LAWFUL; AND (D) RESPOND TO AND RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH YOU AND ANY AUTHORIZED USER RELATING TO OR BASED ON SUBSCRIBER DATA, THE SERVICES OR SUBSCRIBER’S FAILURE TO FULFILL THESE OBLIGATIONS.
In addition to our Subscriber policies regarding Subscriber Data, Alterity Solutions provides this Privacy Notice in order to describe, among other things, what information we process on behalf of our Subscribers in connection with the System.
All right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the System are owned by Alterity Solutions and/or its affiliates, licensors or contributors to the System.

You acknowledge that we have designated the Material as our confidential intellectual property, and that the Material is protected from unauthorized disclosure as Confidential Information in our Contract with Subscriber. You agree to treat the Material presented in our System as confidential and proprietary to us, licensed to our Subscriber for its and your education, but not to be copied, used or disclosed for any commercial or other purpose.

While we endeavor to include accurate and up-to-date Material on our System, there are certain things we cannot promise about the System. THE SYSTEM IS PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, AND WE, OUR AFFILIATES, OUR LICENSORS OR CONTRIBUTORS, AND OUR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, AND REPRESENTATIVES (THE “TC PARTIES”) THE TC PARTIES DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. THE TC PARTIES DO NOT MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES TO YOU ABOUT THE SYSTEM, WHETHER ABOUT THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SYSTEM, ITS RELIABILITY, QUALITY, AVAILABILITY OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS OR OTHERWISE, OR THAT ITS USE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. BECAUSE SO MANY NEW DEVELOPMENTS ARE CONSTANTLY ARISING IN MUCH OF THE SUBJECT MATTER WE ADDRESS, THE TC PARTIES ALSO MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES THAT THE MATERIAL WILL ASSURE COMPLETE COMPLIANCE WITH ALL LEGAL REQUIREMENTS, PROVIDE COMPLETE SECURITY OR DEFENSE, OR YIELD ANY OTHER RESULT.
SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SUCH AS THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TC PARTIES EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.
You agree to indemnify and hold the TC Parties harmless from any and all claims, demands, actions, costs, damages, penalties, fines, demands, losses, liabilities and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and court costs) arising out of or in connection with (A) your personal access to or use of our System; (B) your personal breach or violation of any of these Terms or any applicable law, and/or (C) your personal violation of the rights of any third party. The TC Parties reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense of any of the foregoing, and you agree not to settle any of the foregoing without the applicable TC Parties’ prior written consent.
EXCEPT IN EVENT OF DELIBERATE, WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OR WITH RESPECT TO INDEMNIFICATION FROM THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS, IN NO EVENT WILL THE TC PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, COVER OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, PERSONAL INJURY, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, HOWEVER CHARACTERIZED, RESULTING FROM ANY USE OF OR RELIANCE ON THE SYSTEM OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SYSTEM, EVEN IF THE TC PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
THE MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE TC PARTIES ARISING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SYSTEM, OR ANY MATERIALS OBTAINED FROM THE SYSTEM, REGARDLESS OF CAUSE OF ACTION (CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE) WILL NOT EXCEED TEN DOLLARS ($10) IN THE AGGREGATE. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMERS WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND DO NOT LIMIT THE TC PARTIES’ RIGHTS TO SEEK AND OBTAIN EQUITABLE RELIEF.
THE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMER IN THIS SECTION DO NOT PURPORT TO LIMIT LIABILITY OR ALTER YOUR RIGHTS AS A CONSUMER THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, TC’s LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THIS PROVISION SHALL HAVE NO EFFECT ON THE CHOICE OF LAW PROVISION SET FORTH BELOW.
We may change or modify these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion without notice other than posting the revised version on the System. The amended Terms will automatically be effective when posted on the System. Your continued use of the System after any changes in these Terms shall constitute your consent to such changes.
We reserve the right to change, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the System (or any portion thereof), including any and all Material contained on the System, at any time without notice to you. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the System (or any portion thereof).
13.1 Term. Unless otherwise provided, the term of System access for each Authorized User shall begin as of the date the Authorized User has registered and obtained an Account on the System. This Agreement shall remain effective until Subscriber’s subscription for you expires or terminates, or your access to the System has been terminated by Subscriber or us.
13.2 Termination. If we believe that there is a violation of the Contract, these Terms, or any of our other policies that can be remedied by Subscriber’s removal of certain Subscriber Data or taking other action, we will, in most cases, ask Subscriber to take action rather than intervene. We may directly step in and take what we determine to be appropriate action (including disabling your account) if Subscriber does not take appropriate action or we believe there is a credible risk of harm to us, the System, Authorized Users, or any third parties. Please contact Subscriber if you at any time or for any reason wish to terminate your account, including due to a disagreement with any updates to these Terms.
14.1 Jurisdiction, Venue, and Governing Law. You will resolve any claim, cause of action or dispute (“claim”) you have with us arising out of or relating to these Terms or your access to and use of the System exclusively in a state or federal court located in Dallas County, Texas. The laws of the State of Texas will govern these Terms, as well as any claim that might arise between you and us, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Dallas County, Texas for the purpose of litigating all such claims.
14.2 Informal Resolution. Before beginning any legal action, you agree first to make a good faith effort to resolve the matter informally for at least 30 days after providing us written notice of the dispute by email to: email@example.com.
14.3 Jury Waiver. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY DISPUTE RELATING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND US.
15.1 Survival. This Section 15, provisions related to confidentiality, intellectual property, disclaimer of representations and warranties, limitation of liability, dispute resolution, and any other provisions which by their terms or their nature should survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement, shall so survive.
15.2 Assignment. You may not assign any of your rights or delegate your obligations under these Terms, without our prior written consent of us (not to be unreasonably withheld). We may assign these User Terms in their entirety (including all terms and conditions incorporated herein by reference), without your consent, to a corporate affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets.
15.3 Severability. If any provision of the Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, the provision will be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect.
15.4 Waiver. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under these Terms will constitute a waiver of that right.
15.5 Entire Agreement. The Terms, including any terms incorporated by reference into the 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 Contract and the Terms, the terms of the Contract will first prevail, followed by the provisions in these Terms, and then followed by the pages referenced in these Terms (e.g., the Privacy Notice). Subscriber will be responsible for notifying Authorized Users of those conflicts or inconsistencies and until such time the terms set forth herein will be binding.
