9.6 Zym shall not modify Customer Data, disclose Customer Data or access Customer Data, which shall be treated as the Confidential Information of Customer, except: (a) as required by law; (b) as expressly permitted by Customer; (c) to provide the Services; (d) to address technical problems or issues with the Services; (e) at Customer’s request when providing Support; or (f) under its lien over such data as contemplated in clause 9.2 above, or as otherwise contemplated under the Agreement.
10. DATA PROTECTION
10.1 Both parties will comply with all applicable requirements of the Data Protection Legislation. This clause is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace, a party’s obligations under the Data Protection Legislation.
10.4 Without prejudice to the generality of clause 10.1, Customer will ensure that it has all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of any Personal Data provided to Zym, including Customer Personal Data, for the duration and purposes of the Agreement.
10.5 Without prejudice to the generality of clause 10.1, Zym shall, in relation to any Customer Personal Data: (a) process that Customer Personal Data only on the written instructions of Customer unless Zym is required by applicable laws to otherwise process that Customer Personal Data; (b) ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Customer Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Customer Personal Data, appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures; (c) ensure that all personnel who have access to and/or process Customer Personal Data are obliged to keep Customer Personal Data confidential; (d) assist Customer, at Customer’s cost, in responding to any request from a Data Subject and in ensuring compliance with its obligations under the Data Protection Legislation with respect to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators; (e) notify Customer without undue delay on becoming aware of a Personal Data breach; and (f) at the written direction of Customer, delete or return Customer Personal Data and copies thereof to Customer on termination of the agreement unless required by Applicable Law to store Customer Personal Data (subject always to Customer having paid Zym any then outstanding charges owing under the Agreement).
10.8 Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer Personal Data may be transferred or stored outside the EEA or the country where Customer and the Authorised Users are located in order for Zym to provide the Services and access to the Software and fulfil Zym’s other obligations under the Agreement.
10.9 Customer shall ensure that (a) it is entitled to transfer the relevant Customer Personal Data to Zym so that Zym may lawfully use, process and transfer the personal data in accordance with the Agreement on Customer’s behalf; and (b) that the relevant third parties have been informed of, and have given their consent to, such use, processing, and transfer as required by the Data Protection Legislation.
10.10 Zym may monitor use of the Subscription Services by Customer and use Customer Data gathered in an aggregate and anonymous manner. Customer agree that Zym may use and publish such information, provided that such information does not contain any personal data, identify Customer or any of its contacts specifically and is used solely in an aggregated and anyonymised manner, for example, stating numbers of contacts falling within particular job categories contacted within particular industries. This data is used by Zym as part of internal data processes to develop and improve Enrichment Data. With these internal data processes, in no event will specific Customer Data be disclosed, included within or provided to other customers or third parties. For clarity any data provided to other customers or third parties will only be in an aggregated and anonymous manner. This does not include Crowdsourced Data, if applicable, which Customer acknowledges and accepts will be available to other customers of Zym’s through the Software.
10.11 If Zym makes Enrichment Data available to Customer, then Customer may only use that Enrichment Data in connection with Customer’s use of the Subscription Services (unless, of course, Customer have a source other than the Subscription Services for such Enrichment Data). Enrichment Data may be made available to Customer based on Customer Data, but Zym will not use Customer Data to enrich data for other parties, except as Zym describe in clause 10.10 above. The Enrichment Data Zym provide may be provided from or through third party service providers or public sources.
10.12 As part of the Other Services, Zym may provide specific data leads to Customer, which may include Personal Data relating to third parties (Lead Data). Such Lead Data may only be used by Customer for its internal business purposes, and the provisions in clause 10.10 above regarding Enrichment Data shall equally apply to Lead Data (as applicable). Whilst Zym believes such Lead Data to constitute publicly available information collected from publicly accessible sources, and regard the resale of Lead Data as compliant with Zym’s obligations under the Data Protection Legislation, for avoidance of doubt, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Zym accepts no responsibility or liability to it in connection with the provision of such Lead Data. All Lead Data obtained has been collected by third parties with whom Zym works and for whom Zym cannot be held liable or responsible. It shall be Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure that any such Lead Data resold to it is used lawfully in accordance with relevant Data Protection Legislation and other relevant laws. In particular, Customer agrees that where any individual whose Personal Data has been captured in the Lead Data has indicated to Customer that they no longer wish to be contacted by third parties, that this is communicated to Zym so that such individual’s Personal Data can be removed from the Lead Data.
11.1 Each party shall maintain the confidentiality of the other party’s Confidential Information and shall not, without the prior written consent of the other, use, disclose, copy or modify the other party’s Confidential Information (or permit any third party to do so) other than as strictly necessary for the performance of its rights and obligations under the Agreement (including in Zym’s case, communicating the Confidential Information to its third party services providers). The provisions of this clause shall not apply to any information which: (a) is or comes into the public domain without breach of the Agreement; or (b) was in the possession of the receiving party prior to receipt from the disclosing party without an obligation of confidence; or (c) was obtained from a third party free to divulge such information; or (d) is required to be disclosed by law or by any legal, regulatory or administrative body.
11.2 Customer grants Zym the right to add Customer’s name and company logo to Zym’s customer list and website.
11.3 During the term of the Agreement, and for a period of twelve (12) months thereafter, Customer shall not, and shall not attempt to, build, develop or utilise any product or service which competes with or is substantially similar to the Software created by Zym. This obligation shall cease to apply only where there is no longer a commercial relationship between the parties, and Customer can demonstrate that (a) an independent third party has licensed or sold the Software (or something similar to it) to it on arms’ length terms, and (b) such competing solutions do not incorporate or contain, are not based upon, and do not rely in any way upon any Confidential Information disclosed by Zym to Customer, or to which Customer otherwise gained access, pursuant to the Agreement or any previous contract between the parties.
12.1 Customer shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Zym against claims, actions, proceedings, losses, damages, expenses and costs (including without limitation court costs and reasonable legal fees) arising out of or in connection with its and/or the Authorised Users’ use of the Services and Software including, without limitation, for any liability, damages, costs or claims incurred by Zym due to Customer’s use of the Services or Software for any purpose outside of the Purpose or any claim relating to Customer Data, including, without limitation, any claim brought by a third party alleging that Customer Data, or Customer’s use of the Services or Software in breach of the Agreement infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third party or violates applicable law, save to the extent directly attributable to Zym’s breach of the Agreement.
12.2 Zym shall, subject to clause 12.5 and the limitations in clause 13, defend Customer against any third party claim that the Software infringes any United Kingdom patent effective as of the Commencement Date, and shall indemnify Customer for any amounts awarded against Customer in final judgment or settlement of such claims, provided that: (a) Zym is given prompt notice of any such claim; (b) Customer provides reasonable co-operation to Zym in the defence and settlement of such claim, at Zym’s expense; and (c) Zym is given sole authority to defend or settle the claim.
12.3 In the defence or settlement of any claim, Zym may procure the right for Customer to continue using the Software, replace or modify the Software so that it becomes non-infringing or, if such remedies are not reasonably available, terminate the Agreement without any additional liability or obligation to pay liquidated damages or other additional costs to Customer.
12.4 In no event shall Zym, its employees, agents and sub-contractors be liable to Customer to the extent that the alleged infringement is based on: (a) a modification of the Software by anyone other than Zym; or (b) Customer’s use of the Software in a manner contrary to the instructions given to Customer by Zym; or (c) Customer’s use of the Software after notice of the alleged or actual infringement from Zym or any appropriate authority.
12.5 The foregoing states Customer’s sole and exclusive rights and remedies, and Zym’s (including Zym’s employees’, agents’ and sub-contractors’) entire obligations and liability, for infringement of any patent, copyright, trademark, database right or right of confidentiality.
13. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
13.1 This clause 13 sets out the entire financial liability of Zym (including any liability for the acts or omissions of its employees, agents and sub-contractors) to Customer in respect of: (a) any breach of the Agreement (including without limitation, any claim under clause 12.2); (b) any use made by Customer of the Software, Services, Support or any part of them; and (c) any representation, statement or tortious act or omission (including negligence) arising under or in connection with the Agreement.
13.2 Except as expressly and specifically provided in the Agreement: (a) all warranties, representations, conditions and all other terms of any kind whatsoever implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, excluded from the Agreement; (b) the Services, the Software and all other services provided, procured and/or sub-contracted by Zym under the Agreement, are provided to Customer on an “as is” basis; and (c) Customer assumes sole responsibility for the use of the Services, Software and their associated documentation by it, the Authorised Users, and for conclusions drawn from such use. Zym shall have no liability for any damage caused by errors or omissions in any information, instructions or data provided to Zym by Customer in connection with the Services, Software or Support, or any actions taken by Zym at Customer’s direction.
13.3 Nothing in the Agreement excludes Zym’s liability: (a) for death or personal injury caused by Zym’s negligence; or (b) for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or (c) any other liability which cannot strictly be excluded or limited by relevant law.
13.4 Subject to clauses 13.2 and 13.3: (a) Zym shall not be liable whether in tort (including for negligence or breach of statutory duty), contract, misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise for any loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and/or similar losses or loss or corruption of data or information, or pure economic loss, or for any special, indirect or consequential loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses however arising under the Agreement; and (b) Zym’s total aggregate liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the Agreement shall be limited to the total Subscription Charges and Consultancy Charges paid during the 12 months immediately preceding the date on which the claim arose.
13.5 Zym shall have no liability to Customer whatsoever in respect of anything arising during the Trial Period, which limitation the parties agree to be reasonable having regard to the free of charge nature of the Trial Period. Specific email and data limits may apply during the Trial Period, which shall normally be outlined in any Quotation or online form by which Customer signs up for any Free Services.
13.6 Customer acknowledges and accepts that the Software and Services have not been developed specifically to meet its requirements, and that it is therefore it is its sole responsibility to ensure that the functions of the Software and Services meet such requirements. In particular, Customer acknowledges that the Software and Services simply provide a digital platform with various tools permitting the it and its Authorised Users to manage Customer’s protocols or processes (and organise and undertake) (collectively Processes) for marketing automation, mailing, data and customer relationship management.
13.7 Customer acknowledges and accepts that Zym shall have no liability or responsibility for ensuring that such Processes (as determined and set by Customer’s Authorised Users) or their exercise are compliant with any applicable legal, regulatory or industry standards or requirements in the country or jurisdiction within which Customer operates or is based (the Relevant Standards), nor that such Processes are in any way adequate, complete, relevant and/or appropriate for the purposes for which they are intended.
13.8 The results and outcomes of Customer’s use of the Software and Services cannot be in any guaranteed and use of the Software and Services is something for which Customer acknowledges and accepts that Zym cannot and do not accept any liability or responsibility. Customer shall be entirely responsible for same. It is Customer’s sole responsibility to monitor and audit its Authorised Users’ use of the Services and ensure that any Processes are lawful and proper and are properly and lawfully set, used and adhered to.
13.9 Customer acknowledges and accepts that (a) Zym do not and cannot warrant or represent that the Software and Services are compliant with any regulatory or legal requirements to which it may be subject, or which may be relevant to the purposes for the Software may be used, including the Relevant Standards; (b) Zym cannot be held responsible or liable for human error and negligent or fraudulent use of the Subscription Services.
14. TERM, TERMINATION AND SUSPENSION
14.1 The Agreement shall commence on the Commencement Date, or the date the Quotation is signed by both parties, whichever is earlier, and shall (unless terminated earlier in accordance with these terms) continue in full force and effect until the end of the Subscription Term.
14.2 Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies to which the parties may be entitled, either party may terminate the Agreement without liability to the other if: (a) the other party commits a material breach of any of the terms of the Agreement and (if such a breach is remediable) fails to remedy that breach within 14 days of that party being notified in writing of the breach; or (b) an order is made or a resolution is passed for the winding up of the other party or if an order is made for the appointment of an administrator to manage the affairs, business and property of the other party, or if such an administrator is appointed or if documents are filed with the court for the appointment of an administrator or if notice of intention to appoint an administrator is given by the other party or its directors or by a qualifying charge holder, or if a receiver is appointed of any of the other party’s assets or undertaking or if circumstances arise which entitle the court or a creditor to appoint a receiver or manager or which entitle the court to make a winding-up order or if the other party takes or suffers any similar or analogous action in consequence of debt; or (c) the other party ceases, or threatens to cease, to trade. Zym may also terminate the Agreement for cause on thirty (30) days’ notice if Zym determines that Customer is acting, or has acted, in a way that has or may negatively reflect on or affect Zym, Zym’s prospects, or Zym’s customers. The Agreement may not otherwise be terminated prior to the end of the Subscription Term.
14.3 Zym may suspend any Authorised User’s access to any or all Subscription Services without notice for: (i) use of the Subscription Services in a way that violates applicable laws or regulations or the terms of the Agreement or the EULA, (ii) use of the Zym email send service that results in excessive hard bounces, spam complaints via feedback loops, direct spam complaints (to Zym’s DPO), or requests for removal from a mailing list by recipients, or (iii) repeated instances of posting or uploading material that infringes or is alleged to infringe on the intellectual property rights of any person. Zym may, without notice, review, edit and delete any Customer Data that Zym has reason to determine in good faith violate the Agreement or the terms of the EULA, provided that the parties acknowledge and agree that Zym have no duty to, and shall not, pre-screen, control, monitor or edit Customer Data.
14.4 If Customer’s website, or use of, the Subscription Services: (i) is being subjected to denial of service attacks or other disruptive activity, (ii) is being used to engage in denial of service attacks or other disruptive activity, (iii) is creating a security vulnerability for the Subscription Services or others, (iv) is consuming excessive bandwidth, or (v) is causing harm to Zym or others, then Zym may, with electronic or telephone notice to Customer, suspend all or any access to the Subscription Services. Zym will try to limit the suspension to the affected portion of the Subscription Services and promptly resolve the issues causing the suspension of the Subscription Services. Nothing in this clause limits Zym’s right to terminate for cause as set out in clause 14.2 above, if Zym determine that Customer are acting, or have acted, in a way that has or may negatively reflect on or affect Zym, Zym’s prospects, or Zym’s customers.
14.5 Following expiry of the Initial Subscription Term and any Renewal Period, the Subscription Term shall automatically renew over subsequent Renewal Periods unless and until either party gives notice to the other in writing (including by email) that it does not wish the Agreement to continue beyond the then current Renewal Period or Initial Subscription Term (as applicable), such notice to expire no later than 30 days prior to the end of the then current Renewal Period or Initial Subscription Term (as applicable).
14.6 Customer shall be entitled to upgrade its subscription to the Subscription Services (such that the level of Subscription Charges increases) at any time, by selecting the relevant options within the Software platform, and such upgrades shall take effect on a pro-rated basis (or the basis otherwise specified in the platform) with immediate effect, and apply to the end of the then current Initial Subscription Term or Renewal Period.
14.7 The subscription level may not be downgraded before the end of the then current Initial Subscription Term or Renewal Period, and Customer may serve notice that it wishes to downgrade its subscription no later than 30 days prior to the end of the then current Renewal Period or Initial Subscription Term (as applicable). Such downgrade shall take effect from the end of such applicable period.
14.8 Where Customer is offered a Trial Period in the Quotation, Customer shall be entitled to terminate the Trial Period at any time. Customer makes no commitment to purchase Subscription Services from Zym by availing of any Free Services (unless otherwise agreed in any Quotation). Zym may suspend, limit, or terminate the Trial Period and any Free Services for any reason at any time without notice.
14.9 On expiry or termination of the Agreement for any reason: (a) the Customer’s right to access or use the Subscription Services and any Zym Data or Confidential Information shall immediately cease, even if the Initial Subscription Term or Subscription Term is defined as “perpetual” in, or if no expiration date is specified in, the Quotation; (b) Zym may offer Customer Free Services for a time limited period to allow them to stay on, in which case the Agreement shall continue to apply (but subject to the provisions around such Free Services) and Customer’s Authorised User accounts shall remain open (subject always to Zym’s right to cancel or close same, and withdraw the offer of Free Services) at any time; (b) each party shall return and make no further use of any Confidential Information belonging to the other party; and (c) the accrued rights of the parties as at expiry or termination, or the continuation after expiry or termination of any provision expressly stated to survive (including, without limitation, clauses 1, 2, 9, 10, 11, 12.1, 13, 14.9 and 15) or implicitly surviving termination, shall not be affected or prejudiced; (d) as long as Customer have paid all fees owed to Zym, if Customer make a written request within thirty (30) days after termination or expiration the Agreement, Zym will provide Customer with temporary access to the Subscription Services to retrieve, or Zym will provide Customer with copies of, all Customer Data then in Zym’s possession or control. If Zym provide Customer with temporary access to the account, Zym may charge a re-activation fee. Zym may withhold access to Customer Data until Customer pay any fees owed to Zym. Thirty (30) days after termination or expiration of Customer’s Subscription, Zym will have no obligation to maintain or provide Customer the Customer Data and may, unless legally prohibited, delete all Customer Data in Zym’s systems or otherwise in Zym’s control. Customer shall pay all reasonable expenses incurred by Zym in returning or disposing of Customer Data; and (e) if Customer has terminated the Agreement for cause, Zym will promptly refund any prepaid but unused fees covering use of the Subscription Services after termination. If Zym has terminated the Agreement for cause, Customer will promptly pay all unpaid fees due through the end of the Subscription Term. Fees are otherwise non-refundable.
15.1 Zym shall have no liability to Customer under the Agreement if it is prevented from or delayed in performing its obligations under the Agreement, or from carrying on its business, by acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving the workforce of Zym or any other party), failure of a utility service or transport or telecommunications network, act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm or default of suppliers or sub-contractors, provided that Customer is notified of such an event and its expected duration.
15.2 A waiver of any right under the Agreement is only effective if it is in writing and it applies only to the party to whom the waiver is addressed and to the circumstances for which it is given. No delay in exercising any right or remedy or failure to object will be a waiver of such right or remedy or any other right or remedy. A waiver on one occasion will not be a waiver of any right or remedy on any future occasion.
15.3 Unless specifically provided otherwise, rights arising under the Agreement are cumulative and do not exclude rights provided by law.
15.4 If any provision (or part of a provision) of the Agreement is found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions shall remain in force. If any invalid, unenforceable or illegal provision would be valid, enforceable or legal if some part of it were deleted, the provision shall apply with whatever modification is necessary to give effect to the commercial intention of the parties.
15.5 The Agreement, and any documents referred to the constituent documents forming it, constitute the whole agreement between the parties and supersede any previous arrangement, understanding or agreement between them relating to the subject matter they cover. For the avoidance of doubt, the Agreement shall apply to the exclusion of any terms introduced by Customer, through custom, dealing or otherwise. Zym’s obligations are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features of the Subscription Services or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Zym regarding future functionality or features of the Subscription Services.
15.6 Zym might make versions of the Agreement available in languages other than English. If Zym do, the English version of the Agreement will govern Zym’s relationship and the translated version is provided for convenience only and will not be interpreted to modify the English version of this Agreement.
15.7 Customer shall not, without the prior written consent of Zym (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under the Agreement. Zym shall be free to assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under the Agreement without the consent of Customer, but providing notice of any assignment or transfer.
15.8 Nothing in the Agreement is intended to or shall operate to create a partnership between the parties, or authorise either party to act as agent for the other, and neither party shall have the authority to act in the name or on behalf of or otherwise to bind the other in any way (including, but not limited to, the making of any representation or warranty, the assumption of any obligation or liability and the exercise of any right or power).
15.9 Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Agreement, nothing in the Agreement confers or purports to confer any right to enforce any of its terms on any person who is not a party to it.
15.10 Any notice required or permitted to be given under the Agreement shall be in writing and shall be delivered or transmitted to the intended recipient’s address as specified in the Agreement or such other address as either party may notify in writing to the other from time to time for this purpose. It may also, in the case of notice by Zym only, be generally posted on Zym’s website portal, or notified by way of email to the email address Zym has on account for a given Customer. Any notice shall be treated as having been served on delivery if delivered by hand or 4 Business Days after posting if sent by pre-paid first-class post. In the case of notice served by posting on the website or by email, the notice shall be deemed given at the time such upload goes live onto the website and at the time of transmission of the email (respectively).
15.11 The construction, validity and performance of the Agreement shall be governed by the laws of Northern Ireland, and the parties submit any dispute regarding the construction, validity and performance of the Agreement, or its subject matter, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Northern Ireland.
15.12 The Agreement is a contract for the provision of services and not a contract for the sale of goods. Where Customer is based in the USA the provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA), or any substantially similar legislation as may be enacted, shall not apply to this Agreement. If Customer is based outside the USA, the parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not govern the Agreement or the rights and obligations of the parties under it.
15.13 The Quotation may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which will be considered an original, but all of which together will constitute the same agreement. The exchange of a fully executed Quotation (in counterparts or otherwise) by electronic transmission shall be sufficient to bind the parties to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.
15.14 Unless otherwise stated in these General Terms, no amendment or variation of the Agreement shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the parties (or their authorised representatives). The above notwithstanding, Zym may, acting in its sole discretion, amend these General Terms from time to time. Every time Zym enters into a new Quotation with any Customer, the terms applying to the Agreement between the Parties shall be as outlined in the relevant version of these General Terms in force at the time of the signing of the relevant Quotation.
15.15 Each party represents and warrants to the other that it has full power and authority to enter into the Agreement and that it is binding upon such party and enforceable in accordance with its terms.
15.16 Zym may update and change any part or all of these General Terms, (other than those relating to fees and charges) at any time. If Zym update or change these General Terms or any other document comprising part of the Agreement, and the updated General Terms or constituent document will be posted at the URL at which Customer originally accessed it and Zym will let Customer know via email or through a pop up notification when using the Software. The updated document will become effective and binding on the next Business Day after notice of any update is so given. When Zym change any document, the “Last Updated” date and version reference in the relevant document (e.g. clause 1.6 of these General Terms) will be updated to reflect the date of the most recent version. Zym encourage Customer to review the documents forming part of the Agreement periodically. If Customer does not agree with a modification, Customer must notify Zym in writing within thirty (30) days after receiving notice of modification. If Customer give Zym this notice, Customer’s subscription will continue to be governed by the terms and conditions of the Agreement prior to modification for the remainder of Customer’s current term. Upon renewal, the amended terms published by Zym will apply.
