DEALPATH TERMS OF SERVICE
Last Update: September 20, 2016
AGREEMENT TO TERMS
By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use the Services. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you”, “your” or “User” will refer to that company or other legal entity, as applicable.
CHANGES TO TERMS OF SERVICES
We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we will let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or through other communications. It is important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
WHO MAY USE THE SERVICES
You may use the Services only if you are 18 years of age or older, capable of forming a binding contract with Dealpath, and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.
REGISTRATION AND YOUR INFORMATION
In order to use the Services, you will first have to register for an account (“Account”) via the Site. When you register for an Account you will establish your logon credentials, which will consist of your email address and a password that you select. Please select carefully the email address under which you register for an Account and remember your logon credentials, because without that email address you will no longer be able to access your Account or receive notifications that we send to your email address. You can change your Account information in the account settings page of the Site, but not the email address under which you register for an Account. For further information, please contact us at email@example.com.
It is important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your Account when you register and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you do not, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree not to disclose your logon credentials to anyone and will notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
We offer multiple types of Accounts under these Terms, including free Accounts and paid Accounts. A description of the features and rates associated with each type of Account is available on the Site at www.dealpath.com/pricing and through our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may upgrade or downgrade your Account between a free Account and a paid Account , effective at the end of your existing subscription period, by contacting us at email@example.com.
If you register for a multi-user Account and you are designated the Administrator of such Account, you will have administrative control over the Accounts of individuals whom you designate as “team members” either at the time you register or thereafter (each, such individual, an “Authorized User”). Each Authorized User will be required to register for an Account and create logon credentials using the same process as any other individual who registers for an Account. You acknowledge and agree that, unless otherwise expressly permitted in these Terms, access to and use of your Account other than by you is limited to your Authorized Users, if any. You further acknowledge and agree that: (a) you will be responsible for ensuring that all of your Authorized Users comply with these Terms; and (b) you will be liable for any breaches or violations thereof by your Authorized Users.
Dealpath may occasionally offer free trials of one or more types of Accounts during which you may use the Services for free for the applicable Account type (a “Trial Account”) and specified time period (the “Trial Period”). Trial Accounts are only available to individuals who have not already registered for an Account and have not previously used the Services under a Trial Account. During the Trial Period of your registration for a Trial Account, we will send you periodic notices reminding you of the date that your Trial Period will end. If you do not register for a paid Account by the end of your Trial Period, you may continue to use the Services with access to the then-current features of a free Account. You may cancel your Trial Account at any time. Please see the section below titled “Termination” for further information.
By registering for a paid Account, you agree to pay the applicable subscription fee (as posted on the Site or as otherwise agreed), plus any applicable taxes and other fees that may accrue in relation to your use of the Services, if any. Paid Accounts are offered with the option to pay either for a 12-month subscription in advance with a single payment or on a monthly basis.
EFFECT OF PRICE CHANGES
Dealpath reserves the right to change its subscription prices at any time. We will notify you of any price changes at least thirty (30) days prior to the date the change takes effect, but no price change will take effect until the renewal date of your then-current subscription, if any. If you don’t agree to a price change, you must cancel your subscription prior to the renewal date of your then-current subscription by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel your subscription as a result of a price change, your subscription will end at the end of your then-current subscription period. If after we provide you with notice of a price change you do not cancel your subscription in accordance with the foregoing terms, your subscription will automatically renew at the end of your then-current subscription period at the then-current price and for the same subscription period. We will charge you the new price as of the first day of renewal of the subscription period.
RECURRING AND NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENT
By agreeing to these Terms, you acknowledge that your subscription has a recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges accrued prior to cancellation. If you register for a Professional Account subscription and opt to pay on a monthly basis and you cancel less than thirty (30) days before the end of a month, you will be charged for that month, but not for the following month. If you register for a Professional Account subscription and opt to pay on an annual basis and you cancel before the end of your 12-month subscription period, Dealpath will not refund the pre-paid fees, but you may continue using the Services until the end of your subscription period.
If you upgrade your Account from a Free Account to a Professional Account, in the month following the upgrade you will be charged in advance for the monthly or annual subscription fee, as applicable. If you upgrade your Account from a Professional Account to enterprise level services, at the end of your current subscription period you will be charged in advance for the applicable annual or monthly subscription fee. Likewise, if you downgrade your Account from a Professional Account to a Free Account or from enterprise level services to a Professional Account, you will be charged the applicable rate after your current subscription period ends and your new subscription period starts.
FORM OF PAYMENT
You have the option to make payments by credit card, check, or wire transfer. If you wish to pay by check or wire transfer, please contact our sales team at email@example.com to set up billing. Whether you opt to pay by credit card or check, you will be required to provide customary billing information, such as name, billing address, and credit card number, and you agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information. All fees paid are non-refundable and non-transferable, except as expressly provided in these Terms. All fees and applicable taxes, if any, are payable in United States dollars.
Upon receipt of a request to register for an Account and pay by credit card, we will verify authorization for the purchase amount with the applicable credit card company. To prevent any unnecessary delays, please ensure that the billing address you provide matches the information on your credit card account. You can access and modify your billing Account information on the Site at any time. Payment terms and fees payable by you to your credit card company are based on the agreement between you and your credit card company. You acknowledge and agree that you (and not Dealpath) are responsible for complying with the terms and conditions governing your relationship with such third party payment service provider.
We welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”). You can submit Feedback by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You grant to us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise exploit the Feedback for any purpose.

You also represent and warrant that neither your User Content, nor your use and provision of your User Content to be made available through the Services, nor any use of your User Content by Dealpath or other users of the Services on or through the Services will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation or violate any confidentiality or other commitments that you have (or that the company or other legal entity you represent has) to any third parties.
If you have registered for a single paid Account or you are registered for and are designated the Administrator of a multi-user Account, you can hide or remove your User Content. However, in certain instances, some of your User Content may not be completely removed and copies of your User Content may continue to exist on the Services. For example, certain information related to you, such as User Content you uploaded to a specific transaction or in other ways shared with other users, and the comments posted or past actions taken by you in transactions will continue to be visible to other users, if they are connected to the transaction in question. Dealpath will retain an audit trail of such actions for our records or as otherwise required by law. In addition, any copies of your User Content made by other users to which you granted access to your User Content will not be affected by such removal. We are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or the failure to remove or delete) any of your User Content.
RIGHTS IN USER CONTENT GRANTED BY YOU TO OTHER ACCOUNT HOLDERS
By granting access to your User Content to other Account holders through the Services, you hereby grant such other Account holders a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, publicly display, publicly perform, and distribute your User Content only in connection with using the Services, as permitted by the functionalities of the Services and by the access and use rights you allocate to such other Account holder through the Services.
