Except as otherwise expressly allowed in these Terms, Partsimony shall not use, distribute, sell, sublicense or disclose any Customer Data, other than as included in the Partsimony Analytics without written authorization of Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer understands that Partsimony may use, retain, and publish certain elements of Customer Data generated by the use of the Partsimony Platform by customers provided that such elements of Customer Data are anonymized such that they do not and cannot be reverse engineered to identify Customer or any individual and aggregated with similar data from other Partsimony Customers (“Aggregated Data”) to provide data analytics to customers. Further, Customer understands and agrees that Partsimony may use information generated by the Services, excluding any information that is identifiable to Customer or any individual, which is required to maintain, extend, improve and support the Services and to address any performance or other issues that arise out of the Services (“Operational Data”).  Operational Data includes, without limitation, information relating to system installation and configuration, usage volume, load handling, system analytics and software and system performance.  Customer hereby grants to Partsimony a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty free license to use the Aggregated Data and the Operational Data for the purposes described herein; provided that Partsimony will not and will not permit any third party to disaggregate the Aggregated Data from the data of other customers or otherwise to use the Aggregated Data to re-identify Customer or any individuals.

Partsimony shall notify Customer immediately of any known security breaches. Partsimony is not responsible if Customer makes changes to default security settings which allow access to Customer Data or unauthorized access, breach of firewalls or other hacking by third parties. 

In the course of accessing and/or utilizing the Services or Partsimony Assets, Customer may create an account with Partsimony.

If Customer is exempt from certain taxes, Customer shall provide Partsimony with a certificate of exemption or comparable document issued by the applicable taxing authority. In addition, Partsimony reserves the right to suspend performance, and also to seek cost of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. Customer must pay the Service Fees and any applicable Partner Fees upon receipt of invoice. Disputes over Service Fees and Partner Fees must be submitted to Partsimony in writing on or before the date the Service Fees and Partner Fees become due, otherwise Customer waives dispute rights and all payments are non-refundable.

TERMINATION OF USE

Partsimony reserves the right to suspend or end the Services at any time at our discretion and without notice.  For example, Partsimony may suspend or terminate a Customer’s use of the Services if it does not comply with these Terms or uses the Services in a manner that would cause Partsimony legal liability, disrupt the Services, or disrupt other Customers’ use of the Services.  Customer agrees that Partsimony shall not be liable to Customer or any third-party for any termination or limitation of its access to, or use of the Site, the Partsimony Platform, the Partsimony Assets, the Partsimony IP (including the Partsimony Analytics) or Aggregated Data.

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

As used herein, the term “Confidential Information” shall mean all non-public information disclosed by a party hereunder (the “Disclosing Party”), whether written or oral, that is designated as confidential or that, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, reasonably should be considered as confidential.

If Receiving Party is requested by a court, governmental entity or other third-party to disclose any Confidential Information, it will promptly notify Disclosing Party to permit Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or take other appropriate action, and will assist in such activities. Receiving Party shall only disclose the part of the Confidential Information as is required by law to be disclosed and Receiving Party will use its best efforts to obtain confidential treatment therefor. Receiving Party acknowledges that the Confidential Information is the exclusive property of and belongs solely to the Disclosing Party and shall not claim otherwise for any purpose. Except as may be expressly contemplated by these Terms and subject to continued compliance with its terms for so long as retained, Receiving Party agrees to return to the Disclosing Party, destroy and/or permanently delete, at Disclosing Party's discretion, all Confidential Information (including all copies thereof and all materials created based on Confidential Information) promptly following (i) the Disclosing Party’s request or (ii) within thirty (30) days following termination of these Terms, and certify such in writing. In addition to any other rights and remedies hereunder or at law, Receiving Party acknowledges and agrees that due to the nature of the Confidential Information its confidentiality obligations to Disclosing Party hereunder are of a unique character and agrees that any breach of such obligations may result in irreparable and continuing damage to Disclosing Party for which there may be no adequate remedy in damages and relating to which Disclosing Party will be authorized and entitled to seek injunctive relief, without the necessity of posting a bond or other security, even if otherwise normally required.

Partsimony has the right, in its sole discretion, to add to, remove, modify or otherwise change any part of these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time.  If we exercise this right the “Last Updated” notice at the top of these Terms will be amended to reflect the last date of such changes.  Changes will be effective as of the date the changes to these Terms are made publicly available on the Site.  If you have provided us with your email and provided you have not opted out of receiving electronic communications from us, we may provide you with notification of any changes to these Terms which, in our sole discretion, materially alter your rights or obligations in accessing and using the Services. It is your responsibility to check the Terms each time you access the Site, Partsimony Platform, or Services to determine whether any changes have been made, including by checking the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms.  If any change to these Terms is not acceptable to you, you must discontinue your use of the Services immediately.  Your continued use of Services after any such changes are posted will constitute acceptance of those changes.  These Terms shall apply exclusively to your use and access to the Services and do not alter the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us.
