Please read this Agreement carefully to ensure that you understand each provision. This agreement contains a mandatory individual arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions.
1. Prooffo Service
This is a contract between you and Prooffo. You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with Prooffo, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under eighteen (18) years of age is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. The Service is not available to any Users previously removed from the Service by Prooffo. You must read and agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement before using the Service. If you do not agree, you may not use the Service.
1.2 Limited License
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Service as permitted by the features of the Service. Prooffo reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Service and the Prooffo Content (as defined below). Prooffo may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason.
1.3 User Accounts
Your account on the Service (your “User Account”) gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of User Accounts for different types of Users. If you open a User Account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then: (i) “you” includes you and that entity; and (ii) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf. By connecting to Prooffo with a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service.
You may never use another User’s User Account without permission. When creating your User Account, you must provide accurate and complete information, and you must keep this information up to date. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your User Account, and you must keep your User Account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your User Account. You must notify Prooffo immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your User Account. Prooffo will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your User Account.
You may control your User profile and how you interact with the Service by changing the settings in your Settings page. By providing Prooffo your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. With your consent, we may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Service and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt-out by clicking on the unsubscribe link on the bottom of our emails or by emailing us at team[@]Prooffo.com. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.
1.4 Administrator Accounts
The person who first completes the Service registration on behalf of any company, entity or organization (“Subscribing Organization”) is the initial "Administrator" for purposes of such Subscribing Organization’s use of the Service, and exercises certain options to initially determine the level of access, privacy, and security for the Service related to the Subscribing Organization ("Administrator Account"). For example, the Administrator will determine who can be a User of the Service under the organization associated with that Administrator and Subscribing Organization and the level of privileges that such Users will possess. Once initial registration has been completed, each Subscribing Organization will be able to register additional Administrators. Each Administrator may designate other Users as additional and/or successor Administrators; provided that, each Administrator is responsible for confirming that those person(s) accept such responsibility. Upon becoming an Administrator, each person will be deemed to agree to the obligations hereunder. In addition, any person designated as the billing contact in the billing record for a Subscribing Organization will be deemed to assume the rights and obligations of an Administrator. Administrator Accounts must comply in all respects with all terms and conditions applicable to User Accounts.
