2. Grant of Licenses; Scope of License; Restrictions
2.1 Grant of Licenses.
(a) Right to Use the Services. Provided You comply at all times with all terms and conditions of Your Contract(s), these Terms of Service, and the AUP, Grabyo grants to You, during the Term specified in the Contract(s) or the limited time period specified for the Demo Account issued to You, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, limited license, without right of sublicense, to use the Services.
(b) Content. You hereby grant Grabyo a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, transferable (solely to Suppliers) license to perform such acts with respect to the Content solely as are reasonable in connection with provisioning the Services including, without limitation, the right to: (i) deliver Content in accordance with the preferences You set using Your Account and any authorised subaccounts; (ii) secure, encode, reproduce, host, cache, route, reformat, analyse and create algorithms and reports based on access to and use of the Content; (iii) use, exhibit, broadcast, publish, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute, promote, copy, store, and/or reproduce (in any form) the Content on or through the Services; and (iv) utilise Content to test Grabyo’s internal technologies and processes.
2.2 Scope of Use.
(a) Responsibility for Content. You are solely responsible for all matters arising out of or in connection with the Content including, without limitation, ensuring that the Content does not include Prohibited Content (as defined in the AUP) and does not violate any third party rights, as further described therein and elsewhere in these Terms of Service.
(b) Content. Grabyo, its Suppliers and the Services are passive conduits of the Content and Grabyo and its Suppliers have no obligation to undertake to pre-screen, edit, review, monitor or oversee Content submitted, uploaded, distributed, retrieved, or viewed in connection with use of the Services, and assumes no responsibility or liability relating thereto. You are responsible for Content provided by third parties that may contain errors or omissions, false or defamatory material, and/or material that is offensive, indecent, objectionable, and/or infringing. Under no circumstances will Grabyo or its Suppliers be liable in any way for Content, including, but not limited to, for any defamation, infringement, falsehoods, errors or omissions in any such Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use or publication of any such content posted, delivered, emailed or otherwise transmitted via the Services. You acknowledge Grabyo and its Suppliers are not responsible for preventing or identifying infringement of intellectual property rights or other violations associations with the Content, and Grabyo and its Suppliers assume no responsibility for screening or monitoring for possible (i) infringement or enforcing Your rights or third party rights with respect to Content, (ii) unlawful, inappropriate or unpermitted use, (iii) libel, falsehoods, errors or omissions contained in Content, or (iv) noncompliance with FCC or other governmental laws and/or regulations. If You are an end user, You acknowledge and agree that by using the Services, You may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable and that Grabyo does not guarantee that any Content will be to Your satisfaction.
(c) Third Party Materials/Products/Services. Any third party products, content, services or links displayed on or through the Services are not referrals or endorsements of any product, service or provider; any and all such offerings are displayed solely for convenience only. The Services may in some cases be permitted for use with third party components or services that may be subject to their own, separate license agreements or special pass-through terms, and You assume all risks and liabilities associated with the use of any such third party offerings. For clarity, nothing in this Section 2.2(c) diminishes Grabyo’s obligations to You under these Terms of Service with respect to Grabyo’s (or its Suppliers’) technology that is expressly stated as included within the “Services” in Your Contract (the “Grabyo IP”), but instead relates to any access and/or use of third party products and/or services that You elect to utilise in connection with the Grabyo IP (regardless of whether Grabyo provides integration or other services at Your request in connection with enabling or utilising third party products and/or services). If You utilise Grabyo in connection with the Services, Grabyo wants You to know that it is not charging You to view its content, and as such the Fees never include charges for the Grabyo content itself.
(e) Content Preservation and Disclosure. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Grabyo may, but is not required to, preserve Content and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonable or necessary to: (i) comply with legal process; (ii) enforce a Contract or these Terms of Service; (iii) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third-parties; or (iv) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Grabyo, its Suppliers, users and/or the public. You acknowledge and agree that the technical processing and transmission of the Services, including the Content, may involve (i) transmissions over various networks; and/or (ii) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
(f) Demonstration Accounts. At Grabyo’s discretion, You may receive a Demo Account that may include limited access to test certain features and functionality of the Services. Grabyo is permitted to suspend or terminate the Demo Account at any time with or without notice. At the end of any demonstration period as determined by Grabyo, You are responsible for paying applicable fees for use of the Services pursuant to the payment terms and prices designated in a separate agreement between You and Grabyo (or one of its resellers) or, if no such agreement has been executed, then pursuant to the Grabyo’s then-current standard pricing schedule, which may (but is not required to) be available on the Grabyo Website or Your Account interface.
3. Automatic Updates/Communication Features
The Services automatically communicate with Grabyo’s servers to check for automatic general release updates such as bug fixes, patches, enhanced functions, and/or security related patches for the particular Services purchased under the Contract(s). At no charge to You, Grabyo may require the installation of software updates deemed reasonably necessary to address errors, bugs or other performance issues in the Account (collectively, “Updates”). All Updates shall be deemed part of the Services and subject to the same terms and conditions of these Terms of Service. Grabyo may (but is not required to) post notices from time to time on the Grabyo website explaining Updates and provide instructions associated with such Updates.
In consideration of Your rights in and to the Services, You shall pay Grabyo in GBP, or the currency defined in your Contract, the Fees designated in your Contract(s). You agree to purchase the Services indicated in each applicable Contract for the Initial Term stated therein and any renewal terms. All recurring Fees (including without limitation: Platform Fees, Additional Variable Fees, and Support fees) are due and payable as per the Contract, or where this is not defined shall be payable in advance, all usage-based fees are due and payable monthly in arrears, and all non-recurring Fees are due and payable on the date of the order. Recurring Fees shall be prorated for the first billing cycle of the Term based on the Effective Date. Any unused portions of included and/or bundled use allotments that may be stated in the Contract(s) (including without limitation use allotments relating to streams, transcoding, processed content, and delivery) will expire at the end of each time increment stated in the Contract(s) and do not rollover to subsequent time increments. You are solely responsible for all applicable sales, use, import or export taxes, duties, fees, tax due at source (TDS), value-added taxes (VAT), surcharges, tariffs or other amounts attributable to the Services and exploitation of the Content under the Contract(s) and any withholdings of the same required by Grabyo will be invoiced back to You. Fees not paid when due shall be subject to a late fee equal to the lesser of one and one half percent (1.5%) of the unpaid balance per month or the highest monthly rate permitted by applicable law. Grabyo may, with or without notice, suspend or terminate access to the Services if You are delinquent in paying any portion of the Fees. In the event that a Contract is terminated prior to the end of the Term for any reason other than an uncured material breach by Grabyo, all committed fees for the Term shall become immediately due and owing in full. After the Initial Term of a Contract or renewal thereof (as applicable), the Fees shall be subject to Grabyo’s standard pricing changes.
4.1 In order to register for or use a paid version of Grabyo, or a version, service level or service plan to which usage and/or overage charges may apply, you may be required to provide Grabyo with billing and account information (“Billing Information”) for a credit card, payment card or other payment system, such as invoice payments, for which you are authorised to approve charges (each, a “Payment Source”) to allow Grabyo to collect payment from you for your use of Grabyo. You must provide Grabyo with true, accurate, current and complete Billing information and maintain and promptly update your Billing Information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.
4.2 You authorise Grabyo to automatically and immediately bill your Payment Source, or provide an invoice as per the Contract, when charges for your use of the paid version of Grabyo are due, without any further action on your part or other prior notice on the part of Grabyo. You assume full responsibility for such charges, even if such charges are declined or not paid by your Payment Source.
4.3 If your Payment Source is invalid, if charges billed to your Payment Source are declined or not paid or if you fail to pay charges for a paid version of Grabyo when due, your account may be downgraded, suspended or cancelled, at Grabyo’s discretion. If your account is suspended, Grabyo may, but is not obligated to, maintain your account and/or related content and information, in order to allow you to pay the past-due charges and restore your account. If the charges are not paid, your account may be cancelled.
4.4 All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms of Service. Transactions you complete through Grabyo may include VAT or other sales tax based on the bill-to address and the applicable sales tax rate in effect at the time and location your transaction is completed. There is no pro-rated refund of any fees upon any termination or cancellation. You agree to immediately pay any amounts accrued, but remaining unpaid, as of termination (if any).
4.5 In the event that your account is referred for outside collection assistance, you agree to pay all reasonable court costs, collection costs, attorney fees and those of authorized agents.
5. Term and Termination
The term of a Demo Account shall be as determined by Grabyo in its sole discretion. The term of all other Contracts shall be the initial committed term (the “Initial Term”) and all renewals (collectively referred to herein as the “Term”). Each Contract will automatically renew for a one (1) month term unless either party terminates the applicable Contract effective as of the end of the then-current term by notifying the other party in writing or email at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of then-current term. Upon the termination of a Contract for any reason, You shall immediately discontinue all use of the Services and Grabyo is not obligated to provide you with any Services. You may suspend or terminate a Contract if Grabyo materially breaches a term or condition of the Contract and such breach has not been cured within thirty (30) days of written notice by providing Grabyo with written notice of such suspension or termination, provided however that all Fees that were incurred prior to the date of termination shall be immediately due and payable upon termination and provided further that nothing herein shall be deemed a waiver of any claims that Grabyo may have against You. Grabyo may in its sole discretion terminate or suspend the Contract and/or Your access to the Services: (a) should You fail to comply with a term or condition of Your Contract, these Terms of Service and/or the AUP; (b) based on any conduct that Grabyo believes is or may be directly or indirectly harmful to other users, to Grabyo or its suppliers (including their respective systems and/or the Services); (c) based on any conduct that Grabyo reasonably believes may be a violation of law, third party rights, and/or Grabyo’s Prohibited Activities or restrictions on Prohibited Content (each as described in the AUP), or repeated breaches thereof; and/or (d) in the event of any legal restriction imposed on You, Grabyo, and/or its suppliers with respect to provision of the Services. Grabyo’s right to suspend or terminate Services as set forth in this Section shall not absolve You of any payment or indemnification obligations described herein or diminish any other remedy available to Grabyo and/or its Suppliers. All terms and conditions set forth herein that should by their nature survive termination (including without limitation all provisions relating to payment, intellectual property, ownership, and indemnification) in order to be given full effect shall continue in full force and effect after any expiration or termination of the Contract(s).
6. Title and Ownership
