Effective Date: January 1st, 2021
Welcome to www.compasplaybook.com. These Customer Terms of Service ("Customer Terms') describe and govern your rights and responsibilities when using our online Playbook Platform, all content, services, and / or products available on our Platform (collectively, the "Services"). Please read them carefully. We are grateful you're here.
First Things First.
These Customer Terms and any Order Form(s) (defined below) together form a binding “Contract” between Customer and us. “us,” “our”, "Company" and “we” refers to COMPAS Global Technologies USA, Inc., a California corporation.
Your Agreement On Behalf of “Customer”.
“Customer” means the organization that you represent in agreeing to the Contract. If your playbook is being set up by someone who is not formally affiliated with an organization, Customer is the individual creating the playbook. For example, if you signed up using a personal email address and invited a couple of colleagues or friends to work on a new startup idea but haven't formed a company yet, you are the Customer.
If you purchase subscription(s), create a playbook (i.e., a digital space where a team of Teammates may access the Services, as further described in our Learn pages), invite users to that playbook, or use or allow use of that playbook after being notified of a change to these Customer Terms, you acknowledge your understanding of the then-current Contract and agree to the Contract on behalf of Customer. Please make sure you have the necessary authority to enter into the Contract on behalf of Customer before proceeding.
Now, therefore, you as the "Customer" and us, as the "Company", hereto agree as follows:
“Data” means electronic data and information: (a) submitted by or for Customer to the Services or (b) collected and processed by or for Customer using the Services.
“Teammate” means an individual employee or contractor of Customer, solely in their capacity of providing services to Customer, authorized by Customer to use the Services through means of a Teammate identification and password.
2.1 Provision of Services. Subject to the terms of this Contract, Company will make the Services available to Customer for use by the number of Users authorized for each Service as follows: (i) Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to make software Services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for: (A) planned downtime and (B) any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Company’s reasonable control; and (ii) Company will provide consulting Services online via Zoom, Hangout or another similar service at times mutually scheduled with Customer.
2.2 Protection of Data. Company will maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards for the protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of the Data, which will be stored in the cloud on global servers. To the extent that Data includes Customer personnel information, Customer shall secure permission for such information to be stored globally. No data will be shared with third party unless necessary for the normal use of services by the Customer.
3.1 Subscriptions. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, (a) the Services are purchased as subscriptions; (b) additional subscriptions may be purchased during a subscription term at the same pricing as the original subscription, pro-rated for the portion of that subscription term remaining at the time the subscriptions are added; and (c) any added subscriptions will terminate on the same date as the original subscription.
3.2 Teammates. Only the authorized number of Teammates may access the Services. Customer will ensure that each Teammate shall have a unique password, which may not be shared with or used by any other individual. Customer is responsible for each Teammate’s use and nondisclosure of his or her password and access to the Services.
3.3 Customer Responsibilities. Customer will: (a) be responsible for Teammates’ compliance with this Contract; (b) be responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of the Data and the means by which Customer acquired such Data; (c) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Services, and notify Company promptly of any unauthorized access or use; and (d) use the Services only in accordance with this Contract, any documentation provided by Company with respect to the Services and all applicable laws and government regulations.
3.4 Usage Restrictions. Customer will not and will not suffer any Teammate to: (a) use any of the Services for the benefit of anyone other than Customer; (b) sell, resell, license, sublicense, distribute, rent or lease any of the Services; (c) use any of the Services to store or transmit infringing or unlawful material; (d) permit direct or indirect access to or use of any of the Services in a way that circumvents a contractual usage limit; (e) copy any of the Services or any part, feature, function or user interface thereof; (f) access any of the Services in order to build a competitive product or service; or (g) reverse-engineer any of the Services.
3.5 Third Party Vendors. Company may make available a list of certified vendors or otherwise introduce Customer to vendors. Customer is solely responsible for evaluating and engaging with any such vendor in Customer’s discretion.
4.1 Fees. Customer will pay all fees for the Services contracted as specified in COMPAS Software Packages: Starter, Growth, and Scale Packages - and must be paid in advance for each month. Unless otherwise stated, fees for monthly Teammate subscriptions will be direct debited or charged to Customer’s credit card or bank account (ACH) on the first business day of every month, and fees for professional services are due net-fifteen (30) days from the date of invoice.
Payment obligations are non-cancelable and, except as expressly stated in the Contract, fees paid are non-refundable.
4.2 Measure of Teammates. For the definition of the fees, we measure the number Teammates listed in your account in the Compas Playbook Platform on the 1st day of every month at 00:01 hours Pacific Standard Time and it will be reflected in your billing statement for that month.
4. 3 "First Month on Us" Billing Policy. We believe customers should only pay for Teammates that are actually used in the COMPAS Playbook Platform at the time that we measure Teammates. If you add a new Teammate partway through the month, we’ll only charge for that Teammate starting on the 1st day of the following month. Here’s an example: You add a new Teammate on the 8th day into the month and there are 22 days remaining in that month, those 22 days are on us - for free! We do not pro-rate our fee.
4.4 Suspension of Services. If any amount owed by Customer under this Contract is ten (10) or more days overdue, Company may suspend the Services until such amount is paid in full.
4.5 Taxes. Fees do not include any taxes, levies, fund transfers, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction (“Taxes”). Customer shall be responsible for paying all Taxes associated with purchases of the Services hereunder.
5.1 Reservation of Rights. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, Company reserves all right, title and interest in and to the Services, including all related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to Customer hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein.
5.2 License to Data. Customer hereby grants to Company a worldwide, limited-term license to host, copy, transmit and display the Data, as necessary to provide the Services in accordance with this Agreement. Subject to the limited license granted herein, Company acquires no right, title or interest to the Data, except that Company may worldwide in perpetuity: (a) use the Data internally for analytical purposes: (b) publish statistics and other analyses based on the Data; and (c) re-use portions of the Services customized by Customer, in each case so long as they do not reveal to the public Customer-identifiable information.
5.3 Permission to Record. In the course of providing Services, Company may record sessions, conversations and consultations with Users for quality control and training purposes.
5.4 License to Use Feedback. Customer hereby grants to Company a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into the Services without royalty or any additional consideration any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by Customer or Users relating to the operation of the Services.
5.5 Customer Name. Customer grants us the right to use Customer’s company name and logo as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on our website and in other public or private communications with our existing or potential customers, subject to Customer’s standard trademark usage guidelines as provided to us from time-to-time. We don’t want to list customers who don’t want to be listed, so Customer may send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that it does not wish to be used as a reference.
5.6 CONFIDENTIALITY. Company agrees to maintain all Customer Confidential Information in confidence and not to disclose or use it except for the purpose provided for in this Contract. “Confidential Information” means information disclosed by Customer, either directly or indirectly, whether in writing, verbally or otherwise, and whether prior to, on or after the effective date of this Agreement that by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or confidential and includes, but is not limited to the Customer Data, any technical and nontechnical information related to Customer's business and current, future and proposed products and services, including for example and without limitation, information concerning research, development, design details and specifications, financial information, procurement requirements, engineering and manufacturing information, customer lists, business forecasts, sales information and marketing plans .The foregoing does not apply to information that Company can document: (i) is in the possession of Company at the time of disclosure free of any confidentiality obligation at the time it is obtained from Customer; (ii) is received by the Company from a third party free of any obligation of confidence, without breach of this Agreement and otherwise not in violation of Customer's rights; (iii) is independently developed by the Company independently of and without reference to any of Customer's Confidential Information; or (iv) is in the public domain through no fault of the Company. Furthermore, Company may disclose Data pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body. A breach by Company of this Section 5.6 will cause irreparable and continuing damage to Customer for which money damages are insufficient, and Customer shall be entitled to injunctive relief and/or a decree for specific performance, and other relief as may be proper (including money damages if appropriate), without the need to post a bond.
