ClimateView Terms of Use

Posted:     30 September 2020

Effective:  1 October 2020

PARTIES TO THIS AGREEMENT.

ClimateView operates a “model-as-a-service” (MaaS) incorporating software and methodologies focused on climate-related project management and data sharing (together, the “Platform”) that can be accessed via our website at www.climateview.global and other related URLs (collectively, the “Website”). Whenever you access our Services (as defined hereinafter) from, as, or on behalf of an entity located in North America, “ClimateView”, “we” or “us” refers to ClimateView, Inc., a Delaware corporation. Whenever you access those Services from, as, or on behalf of an entity located elsewhere in the world, “ClimateView”, “we” or “us” refers to ClimateView AB, a Swedish Aktiebolag.

1. Terms of Use.  

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) describe the terms on which you may use public portions of our Website as well as the Platform, the Platform Apps (as defined in Section 2.3 below), and the Additional Services (as defined hereinafter) (together, the “Services”). The technical requirements for use of the Services and feature descriptions (the “Documentation”) are available on our Website, and may be updated from time to time. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and any End-User License Agreement (“EULA”) presented to you as a Subscriber (or user of our Services), such EULA shall supersede these Terms whenever you use that Service. The Terms include Our Policies, Your Order(s), and the EULA. Subscription to the Platform provides you access to the data sharing services described below.  You will have the right to access the Platform only if you (an “Account Holder”) establish one or more Platform accounts (each, an “Account”).  All use of and access to our Services are governed by these Terms. These Terms are effective as of the date you first click “I agree” (or similar button or checkbox) or use or access the Services, whichever is earlier (the “Effective Date”), and by so doing you are (and agree to be) bound by these Terms. These Terms are between you and ClimateView. “You” means the entity you represent in accepting these Terms or, if that does not apply, you individually.  If you are accepting on behalf of your employer or another entity, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have full legal authority to bind your employer or such entity to these Terms and are at least the age of legal majority in your employer’s or other entity’s principal place of business; (ii) if you are accessing this site from North America, that the principal place of business of your employer or other entity is also in North America (iii) you have read and understand these Terms; and (iv) you agree to these Terms on behalf of the party that you represent.  If you do not have the legal authority to bind your employer or the applicable entity, please do not click “I agree” (or similar button or checkbox) wherever that option is presented to you, and immediately discontinue the use of our Services.  PLEASE  NOTE THAT IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A SERVICE USING AN EMAIL ADDRESS FROM YOUR EMPLOYER OR ANOTHER ENTITY, THEN (A) YOU WILL BE DEEMED TO REPRESENT SUCH PARTY, (B) YOUR CLICK TO ACCEPT WILL BIND YOUR EMPLOYER OR THAT ENTITY TO THESE TERMS, AND (C) THE WORD ‘YOU’ IN THESE TERMS WILL REFER TO YOU AS WELL AS YOUR EMPLOYER OR THAT ENTITY. You also affirm that any registration information that you submit to us on behalf of yourself or your employer or the company, organization or other entity with which you are affiliated, is true, accurate, and complete, and you agree to keep it that way at all times. We may modify these Terms from time to time as described in Section 24 below (Modifications). Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your information while our Acceptable Use Policy outlines your responsibilities when using our Services. If you do not agree to these Terms, then you must not use the Services.

2. Services.

2.1 Use of Platform.  Our Services allow subscribers (each, a “Subscriber”) to exchange non-personal content (“Dataset(s)”) and/or collaborate on multi-party projects. Although our Services provide you with a platform that allows users to take actions including collaborating on setting climate targets, assessing policies and actions in light of such targets, receiving a broader overview of climate transition strategies, and sharing data for the benefit of other users, we make no representations about the content of these networks and the communications which they contain. You agree and acknowledge that (i) since our Services seek to improve climate transition modeling, other Subscribers may seek to understand and/or adopt the costs and efficiencies of other Subscribers’ actions and/or policies, specifically including those which your organization may develop, adopt, or implement; (ii) the open sharing of data relevant to the Services is of core value and benefit to all Subscribers; and (iii) accordingly, you hereby grant a royalty-free, world-wide, and perpetual license to us and other Subscribers to use and model the Datasets you  upload or otherwise provide to the Platform.  We may transfer all of our rights in such Datasets to any Affiliate or non-profit entity responsible for the open data initiative (ODI), which is an integral part of the Platform, may change from time to time, and is described in more detail at www.transitiontargets.org.

2.2 Subscriber Data and Datasets.  CLIMATEVIEW TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR ANY ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF ANY SUBSCRIBER OR FOR ANY SUBSCRIBER DATA (AS DEFINED HEREINAFTER) OR DATASETS SUBMITTED BY ANY SUBSCRIBER, INCLUDING LOSS OR DAMAGE RESULTING FROM YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION IN THE SUBSCRIBER DATA OR ANY DATASET. ClimateView has no support or warranty obligation for any Subscriber Data or Datasets and does not guarantee their accuracy or continued availability. You will look solely to the applicable Subscriber, and not to ClimateView, for any claims or complaints related to a Dataset.  You acknowledge and agree that ClimateView has the right (but not the obligation) to monitor Subscriber Data and Datasets and to alter, remove or refuse to post or allow posting of any content.

2.3 The Platform allows a Subscriber (each, a “Data Supplier”) to provide access to such Datasets to third parties or to access Data Sets provided by third party service providers (each, a “Data User”), in each case on the terms and subject to the terms agreed to by the Data Users.

2.4 We reserve the right to offer additional services and applications through the Platform (each, an “Additional Service”). If we offer Additional Services, we will inform you separately and transmit additional terms and conditions to you, if necessary.

3. Rights in Platform, Platform Apps, Datasets and Data.

3.1 ClimateView Content.  ClimateView and its Affiliates, licensors and suppliers have and will retain all right, title and interest (including, without limitation, all patent, copyright, trade secret or other proprietary rights, under US and foreign laws) in and to the Services, including without limitation third-party applications available via the Platform (“Platform Apps”), as well as complete title to all information and materials provided by ClimateView and its licensors on or through the Services, including any artwork, graphics, text, video and audio clips, trademarks, logos, software, and other content (collectively, “ClimateView Content”). The name “ClimateView” and the ClimateView logo and other trademarks used on the Services are trademarks of ClimateView or its affiliates and may not be used in connection with the products or services of others in any manner that is likely to cause confusion.  All other trademarks not owned by ClimateView that appear on the Services are the property of their respective owners. Except for content that is in the public domain or unless ClimateView provides you with written authorization to do so, you may not: (i) incorporate any ClimateView Content into any other work (such as your own website) or use ClimateView Content in any public or commercial manner; (ii) copy, modify, reproduce, adapt, reverse engineer, distribute, frame, republish, upload, display, post, transmit, transfer, license or sell ClimateView Content in any form or by any means; or (iii) change any of the notices about copyright, trademarks or other intellectual property rights that may be part of the ClimateView Content.  At all times, you agree not to assist anyone else in doing any of the above.

3.2 Subscriber Data.  When a Subscriber uses our Services, that Subscriber may Submit (as defined hereinafter) to us data (other than Datasets), content, code, video, images or other materials of any type, as well as suggestions and other user created content (collectively, “Subscriber Data”).  Subscriber Data that you provide to us is referred to as “Your Data.”  “Submit” means to submit, upload, transmit, or otherwise communicate or make available to us. By using the Services, you grant ClimateView and our designees a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferrable, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, process and otherwise use your Subscriber Data in all formats and distribution channels now known or hereafter devised (including on third-party services) to provide the our Services without further notice to or consent from you. Under no circumstances are you entitled to payment for your Subscriber Data.

3.3 Your Data.  As between us and you, you shall retain all right, title and interest in and to Your Data. These Terms don’t give us any rights to Your Data except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services to you and to create an open data exchange, sometimes referred to as an Open Data Initiative (or “ODI”).  You are solely responsible for Your Data and any Datasets that you submit to us, and by submitting Your Data and/or your Datasets, you represent and warrant to us that:  (i) Your Data is true and accurate;  (ii) you own or otherwise control all of the rights to Your Data and any Dataset that you submit, including copyrights and trademarks, necessary to meet your obligations to us under these Terms; and (iii) neither Your Data nor any Dataset that you submit violates the privacy, publicity, intellectual property, or other rights of any other person or entity. Our Services provide you with features like commenting, sharing, searching, image thumbnails, document previews, optical character recognition (OCR), easy sorting and organization, and personalization of information. For example, your name and timestamp for edits to certain data may be made available to users inside and outside of your organization. To provide these and other features, we may access, store, and scan our Data and any Dataset submitted by you. By using the Services, you grant us and our designees a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferrable, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, process and otherwise use Your Data and any Dataset submitted by you in all formats and distribution channels now known or hereafter devised (including on third-party services) to provide the Services and ClimateView’s products without further notice to or consent from you. Under no circumstances are you entitled to payment for Your Data or any Dataset submitted by you.

3.3 Third Party Interests.  Content in the Services may be protected by other users’ intellectual property rights. You may not copy, upload, download, or share content provided by other users of the Services unless you have the express right to do so.  ClimateView may review your conduct and content for compliance with these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy.  We are not responsible for the content or datasets shared on the Platform. You must use the Services in compliance with these Terms and the internal policies of your organization, and, if applicable, any terms and conditions imposed by an Administrator (as defined hereinafter).  Please note that Accounts may be subject to your organization's control by or through such an Administrator. Your Administrators may be able to access, disclose, restrict, or remove information in or from your Account. They may also be able to restrict or terminate your access to the Services at any time, for any reason, and without notice. We respect the intellectual property of others and ask that you do, too. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with the law. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of infringers. Our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement on the Services is:

4. Use of the Services

4.1 Acceptable Use Policy.  Your use of the Services is subject to and must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy which may be presented and/or modified from time-to-time in our EULAs.

4.2 Access to Services.  As part of your subscription to our Platform, you will set up an Account in which you will provide profile information and select the Services to which you wish to subscribe.  Whenever you access and use one any of our mobile applications (“ClimateView Apps”) which we may provide from time-to-time, then we hereby grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, and nontransferable license to download, install, and use the ClimateView Apps solely for the purposes of accessing the Services. Access to any of our APIs, SDKs or other ClimateView developer assets is not included in the Services and is subject to the terms of a separate written agreement.  The rights granted to you in this Section 4.2 are non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable.

4.3 Administrators.  You or others may be able to specify one or more End Users as Administrators (as defined hereinafter).  The Administrator(s) you appoint will have important rights and controls over your use of the Platform and End User Accounts.  This may include (i) granting Data Users access to the particular Platform App(s) managed by the Administrators; (ii) designating which Subscribers shall be permitted to contribute and share Datasets (and if applicable, what types of Datasets) via the Platform, and (iii) resolving technical and business issues that may surface in connection with the use of Services or a Platform App.  It may also involve making Orders for Services or enabling Platform Apps (which may incur fees); creating, deprovisioning, monitoring or modifying End User Accounts, and setting End User usage permissions; and managing access to Your Data by End Users or others.  Without limiting Section 4.5 (Responsibility for End Users), which fully applies to Administrators, you are responsible for whom you allow to become Administrators and any actions they take, including as described above.  You agree that your responsibilities do not extend to the internal management or administration of the Platform for you. If you access and use any Platform Apps other than those provided or distributed by us, then you will be solely responsible for obtaining the required permissions and licenses to use such Platform Apps directly from the licensors or the Administrators managing such Platform Apps. You acknowledge that ClimateView, the Administrators, and/or the providers of Platform Apps may delist and drop any user from the Services at any time for any reason (or no reason at all) without liability, and without notice.

4.4 End User Consent.  You will provide all required disclosures to and will obtain and maintain all required consents from End Users to allow: (i) Administrators to have the access described in these Terms (including the Privacy Policy); and (ii) ClimateView’s provision of the Platform to Administrators and End Users. You will provide evidence of such consents upon our written request.

4.5 Responsibility for End Users.  Our Services may implement various user onboarding flows.  Some Services require users to be designated by Administrators; some allow users to sign up for individual accounts which can become associated with teams or organizations at a later time; and some may allow users to invite other users.  You are responsible for understanding the settings and controls for each Service you use and for controlling whom you allow to become an End User.  We provide Services only to those End Users for whom you have paid the applicable fees, and only such End Users are permitted to access and use the Services.  Some Services may allow you to designate different types of End Users, in which case pricing and functionality may vary according to the type of End User. You are responsible for compliance with these Terms by all End Users, including for any payment obligations.  Please note that you are responsible for the activities of all your End Users, including Orders they may place and how End Users use Your Data, even if those End Users are not from your organization or domain.  We may require consent to our EULA at signup, account creation, registration, or during use of our Services.  

4.6 Credentials.  You agree to require all End Users to keep their user IDs and passwords for the Services strictly confidential, and agree not share such information with any unauthorized person(s).  User IDs are granted to individual, named persons, and may not be shared.  You are responsible for any and all actions taken using your End User Account(s) and password(s), and you agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of which you become aware.  

4.7 Age Requirement for End Users.  The Services are not intended for, and should not be used by, anyone under the age of legal majority in the place of the residence of the End User and otherwise legally competent to enter into a legal agreement.  You are responsible for ensuring that all End Users meet this requirement.

4.8 Domain Name Ownership.  Where you are required to specify a domain for operation of a Service or certain features, we may verify that you own or control that domain, and refuse service if at any point we determine that you do not own or control the domain you specify.

4.9 Text Messages.  Some Services may offer text messaging (SMS or MMS) services for Subscribers and their End-Users.  Message and data rates may apply. Once you opt-in to receive text messages from us, the frequency of text messages that may we send to you depends on your transactions with us.  All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless service provider.  Please contact your wireless service provider for pricing plans and details.  Text message services are provided on an “as is” basis and may not be available in all areas at all times.

BY AGREEING TO RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGES, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT CLIMATEVIEW MAY USE AN AUTOMATIC DIALING SYSTEM TO DELIVER TEXT MESSAGES TO YOU AND THAT YOUR CONSENT TO RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGES IS NOT REQUIRED AS A CONDITION OF PURCHASE FOR ANY GOODS OR SERVICES.

5. Restrictions on Services.  

Except as otherwise expressly permitted in these Terms, you will not: (i) reproduce, modify, adapt or create derivative works of the Services; (ii) rent, lease, distribute, sell, sublicense, transfer or provide access to the Services to a third party; (iii) use the Services for the benefit of any third party; (iv) incorporate any Services into a product or service you provide to a third party; (v) interfere with or otherwise circumvent mechanisms in the Services intended to limit your use; (vi) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, translate or otherwise seek to obtain or derive the source code, underlying ideas, algorithms, file formats or non-public APIs to any Services, except to the extent expressly permitted by applicable law (and then only upon advance notice to us); (vii) remove or obscure any proprietary or other notices contained in any Services; (viii) use the Services for competitive analysis or to build competitive products; (ix) publicly disseminate information regarding the performance of the Services; or (x) encourage or assist any third party to do any of the foregoing.  Nothing in this Section 5 will limit the restrictions in other parts of the Terms, and the Services shall remain subject to all such restrictions.  

6. Our Security and Data Privacy Policies.

  6.1 Security and Certifications. We implement and maintain physical, technical and administrative security measures designed to protect Your Data from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure; however, this in no way warrants or implies that your data will be secured at all times.

  6.2 Privacy. We collect certain data and information about you and your End Users in connection with you and your End Users’ use of the Services and otherwise in connection with these Terms. We collect and use all such data and information in accordance with our Privacy Policy at www.climateview.global/privacy, which you expressly acknowledge any time you use or access any of our Services.

6.3 Improving the Services. We are always striving to improve the Services. In order to do so, we use analytics techniques to better understand how our Services are being used. You agree that we may collect query logs and data relating to the operation, support, and/or your use of the Platform Apps and Datasets, including your relationship and interactions with other Subscribers (“Service Data”). We may use Service Data to develop, improve, support, and operate products and services, and may share general statistics about your use and consumption of Datasets (including identifying you in connection with such information) with the applicable Subscriber(s). For more information on these techniques and the type of data collected, please refer to our Privacy Policy.  

6.4 Subpoenas.  Nothing in these Terms prevents us from disclosing Your Data to the extent required by law, subpoenas, or court orders, but we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you where permitted to do so.  ClimateView strives to balance your privacy rights with other legal requirements; to read more about ClimateView’s policies and guidelines for law enforcement officials requesting access to customer data, please see our Guidelines for Law Enforcement Requests.

6.5 GDPR. We will not intentionally collect any “special categories of data” under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) without your explicit consent for one or more specified purposes or as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law.  Special categories of data include personal data (a) revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership; or (b) concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation. If you are accessing the services from the European Union, we will collect and use your personal data only if we have one or more legal bases for doing so under the GDPR.  The legal bases depend on your interaction with us and our sites. This means we collect and use your personal data only where:  you have given your consent for one or more specific purposes; it is necessary to perform a contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you; it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests; it is necessary to protect  the vital interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests; it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or another natural person; or it is necessary to comply with a legal obligation.  We will indicate in brackets the legal basis or bases on which we are relying following each purpose.  Where we are relying on consent as the legal basis, we will notify you and seek additional consent before using your personal data for a new purpose that is inconsistent with the original purpose for which we collected it.

ClimateView does not own Third Party Data, which is provided by other entities and may be subject to additional terms and conditions with such parties.  ClimateView has no support or warranty obligation for any Third Party Data, and does not guarantee its accuracy or continued availability. You will look solely to the provider(s) of any Third Party Data (and not to ClimateView), for any claims or complaints related thereto.  You further acknowledge and agree that ClimateView has the right (but not the obligation) to monitor Third Party Data and to alter, remove or refuse to post or allow posting thereof.

If you enable or use Third Party Implementation(s) with our Services, we will allow those third-party providers to access or use Your Data as required for the interoperation of their products and services with our Services.  This may include transmitting, transferring, modifying or deleting Your Data, or storing Your Data on systems belonging to the third-party providers or other third parties. Any third-party provider’s use of Your Data is subject to the applicable agreement between you and such third-party provider.  We are not responsible for any access to or use of Your Data by third party providers or their Third Party Implementation(s), or for the security or privacy practices of any third-party provider or its Third Party Implementation(s).

10. No Contingencies on Future Functionality; Beta Services; Confidential Services

10.1 No Contingencies.  You agree that your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features (including future availability of any Services beyond the current Subscription Term), or dependent on any oral or written public comments we make regarding future functionality or features.  

10.2 Beta Services.  We sometimes release products and features that are still being tested and evaluated (“Beta Services”). Beta Services are labeled “alpha,” “beta,” “preview,” “early access,” or “evaluation” (or with words or phrases with similar meanings) and may not be as reliable as our other services. Beta Services may be made available so that we can assess their performance, measure market acceptance, and collect user comments.  By using our Beta Services, you agree that we may contact you to collect such feedback. If Beta Services are made available to you, they may be made available on a fee or no-fee basis. Except as otherwise set forth in this Section 10.2 (and any additional terms that we notify you are applicable to the Beta Services), the terms and conditions of these Terms fully apply to Beta Services.  We may modify or terminate your right to use any Beta Services at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion, without liability to you.  You understand that any pre-release and Beta Services, and any pre-release and beta features within our generally available Services which we may make available from time to time (collectively, “Beta Versions”) are still under development, may be inoperable or incomplete, and are likely to contain more errors and bugs than our generally available Services. We make no promises that any Beta Versions will ever be made generally available.  All information regarding the characteristics, features or performance of any Beta Services and Beta Versions constitutes our Confidential Information.  If you use or have access to any Beta Services, you agree not to disclose any information about the Services to anyone without our prior consent.  To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all obligations or liabilities with respect to Beta Services and Beta Versions, including any support, warranty and indemnity obligations.

10.3 IP Rights in Services and Feedback.  The Services are made available on a limited access basis, and no ownership right is conveyed to you, irrespective of the use of terms such as “product”, “purchase” or “sale”.  We and our licensors have and retain all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to Our Technology.  From time to time, you may choose to submit Feedback to us.  We may in connection with any of our products or services freely use, copy, disclose, license, distribute, and utilize any Feedback in any manner without any obligation, royalty, or restriction.  No Feedback will be considered your Confidential Information, and nothing in these Terms shall be construed to limit our right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products or services, even where your Feedback is incorporated.  To the extent a license of your intellectual property might otherwise be required, you grant us an irrevocable, unlimited, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free license to use your Feedback in connection with our business, products, and services, including any enhacnements thereof.

11. Confidential Information.  Except as otherwise set forth in these Terms, each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business methods, technical and/or financial information, process improvements, Our Technology, and any performance information relating to the Services  and disclosed to you by us shall constitute our confidential property without any marking or further designation, (“Confidential Information”). Except as expressly authorized here, the you will (1) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties; and (2) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling your obligations and exercising your rights under these Terms.  Your confidentiality obligations will not apply to information that the you can document: (i) was rightfully in your possession or known to you prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of yours; (iii) is rightfully obtained by you from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by your employees who had no access to such information.  You may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a regulation, law, or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to us).  You also acknowledge that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause us substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and, therefore, that upon any such disclosure, we will be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies we might have at law.  

12. Billing, renewals and payment.

12.1 Monthly and Annual Plans. All Services are offered on a subscription basis.

12.2 Renewals. Except as otherwise specified in your Order or required by applicable law, unless you or we party cancel your subscription prior to expiration of the current Subscription Term, your subscription will automatically renew for another Subscription Term of a period equal to your initial Subscription Term, at then-current rates. You will provide any notice of non-renewal through the means we designate, which may include account settings in the Services or contacting our support team. Cancelling your subscription means that you will not be charged for the next billing cycle, but you will not receive any refunds or credits for amounts that have already been charged. All renewals are subject to the applicable Services continuing to be offered.

12.3 Adding Users. You may add users, increase storage limits, or otherwise increase your use of Services by placing a new Order or modifying an existing Order.

(b) your use of the Services causes an actual, alleged, or potential risk of harm or loss to us or others; or

(c) you have not accessed the Services for 12 consecutive months.

In the event of termination of your access to the Services, we will provide you (or your organization) with advance notice via the email address associated with your Account, and provide a commercially reasonable opportunity for you to export your Subscriber Data from our Services.

13.3 Termination without notice.  We may terminate your access to our Services without notice if:

(a) you are in material breach of these Terms,

(b) our failure to do so could cause us legal liability or compromise our ability to provide the Services to our other users; or

13.4 Other effects of termination.  Upon any expiration or termination of these Terms, you must cease using all Services and delete and return all Confidential Information and other materials belonging to us that are in your possession (including on any third-party systems operated on your behalf). You will certify such deletion upon our request. Subject to the the termination provisions herein, you will lose access to Your Data, and we may delete all of Your Data (unless legally prohibited) after expiration or termination of these Terms or any applicable Subscription Term; therefore, you should make sure to export Your Data regularly during the applicable Subscription Term. In no event will termination relieve you of your obligation to pay any fees payable to us for the period prior, through the effective date of termination. Except where an exclusive remedy may be specified in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any remedy, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have at law or otherwise.

15. Services “AS IS”

EXCEPT AS SET FORTH HEREIN, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, CLIMATEVIEW AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, ABOUT THE SERVICES OR WHETHER OUR CONTENT IS ACCURATE, COMPLETE OR UP TO DATE.  THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.  CLIMATEVIEW DOES NOT ENDORSE THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY OPINION OR ADVICE ON THE SERVICES. WITHOUT LIMITING OUR EXPRESS OBLIGATIONS IN THESE TERMS, WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT WE WILL REVIEW YOUR DATA FOR ACCURACY OR THAT WE WILL PRESERVE OR MAINTAIN YOUR DATA WITHOUT LOSS. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT USE OF THE SERVICES NECESSARILY INVOLVES TRANSMISSION OF YOUR DATA OVER NETWORKS THAT WE DO NOT OWN, OPERATE OR CONTROL, AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA THAT MAY BE LOST, ALTERED, INTERCEPTED, OR STORED ACROSS SUCH NETWORKS. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT OUR SECURITY PROCEDURES WILL BE ERROR-FREE, THAT TRANSMISSIONS OF YOUR DATA WILL ALWAYS BE SECURE OR THAT UNAUTHORIZED THIRD PARTIES WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO DEFEAT OUR SECURITY MEASURES OR THOSE OF OUR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS.

THE PARAGRAPH ABOVE DOESN’T EXCLUDE OR LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU WHERE IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL TO DO SO (E.G. FRAUD OR FRADULENT MISREPRESENTATION IN PROVIDING THE SERVICES).  IF YOU USE THE SERVICES FOR ANY COMMERCIAL, BUSINESS, OR RE-SALE PURPOSE, CLIMATEVIEW, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, AND/OR DISTRIBUTORS WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFIT, LOSS OF BUSINESS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. CLIMATEVIEW AND ITS AFFILIATES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES.

OTHER THAN FOR THE TYPES OF LIABILITY WE CANNOT LIMIT BY LAW (AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION), CLIMATEVIEW’S AND ITS SUPPLIER’S AGGREGATE LIAIBLITY TO THE YOU ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED THESE TERMS WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF $100 OR THE FEES YOU'VE ACTUALLY PAID TO CLIMATEVIEW OVER THE 12-MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENT PROMPTING THE LIABILITY.

You agree that the waivers and limitations specified in this Section 16 apply regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise and will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in these Terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights.

20. Waiver & Severability

21. Additional Terms

Certain features of the Services, such as services offered by business partners, may be subject to additional terms (“Additional Terms”) presented in conjunction with such services.  Regardless of how they are presented to you, you must agree to Additional Terms before using the features of the Services to which they apply.  Unless otherwise specified in Additional Terms, all Additional Terms are incorporated into these Terms.  If you do not agree to the Additional Terms, then you may not use the Services to which they relate.  These Terms and Additional Terms apply equally but, if any Additional Term is inconsistent with any provision of these Terms, the Additional Term will prevail with respect to the Services to which the Additional Terms apply.
