This End User License Agreement (this “Agreement”), which is a legal agreement between you (“Client”) and HumanPredictions, LLC, an Illinois limited liability company (“HP”), shall govern Client’s use of and access to the Platform (as defined below). By checking any acceptance boxes, clicking any acceptance buttons, accessing the Platform or making any other use of the Platform, Client (a) accepts this Agreement and agrees to be bound by each of its terms, and (b) represents and warrants to HP that (i) Client has the authority to enter into this Agreement, and (ii) this Agreement is binding and enforceable against Client. Please read this Agreement carefully, as it constitutes a legally-binding agreement between HP and Client.
Platform. Upon payment of the fees described in the applicable addendum attached to this Agreement (the “Services Addendum”) and subject to the terms set forth herein, Client hereby subscribes for access to the Platform. HP will: (i) make the Platform available to Client on a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license basis solely for the purposes described in the Services Addendum; and (ii) host, or engage one or more third parties to host, the back end of the Platform in accordance with HP’s customary practice. For purposes of this Agreement, “Platform” shall mean HP’s software and/or mobile application primarily intended to serve as database containing contact and other information regarding various recruiting candidates and/or for use in the sales process, as the Platform, and HP’s implementation of the Platform, are further described in the Services Addendum.
Fees; Expenses. In consideration of the license hereunder, Client shall pay to HP the fees specified in the Services Addendum at the times specified in the Services Addendum. Client and HP may separately agree to other services not described in the Services Addendum, the fees for which shall be as set forth in the separate agreement governing the provision of such services (each, a “Separate Agreement”). To the extent Client provides any credit card to HP, whether via the HP’s website or via any other means of communication, HP shall be entitled to charge such credit card for all fees due and owing as set forth herein and within the Services Addendum (such authorization to extend until such time as Client cancels such authorization in writing to HP or otherwise terminates this Agreement in accordance with the terms set forth herein). Fees, once paid, are non-refundable. Fees which are not timely paid shall accrue late charges from the date such payment was due until the date paid at a rate equal to the lesser of 15% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. Client may not offset or withhold fees due under this Agreement for any reason, and Client agrees to reimburse HP for all reasonable costs (including attorney’s fees) incurred in collecting past due fees owed by Client.
Term. This Agreement, subject to any Trial Term defined and described in the Services Addendum, shall continue in full force beginning on the Effective Date and continuing on a month-to-month basis until such time as either party elects not to renew this Agreement by providing written notice of non-renewal to the other party at least 10 days prior to the expiration of any calendar month. In addition, either party shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement at any time in the event the other party (i) declares bankruptcy, or (ii) breaches any of its material obligations hereunder (including, without limitation, payment obligations) and fails to cure such breach within 30 days from the date of receipt of written notice of such breach. Upon any termination of this Agreement, Client shall promptly pay all fees and reimburse HP for all expenses due and owing hereunder. Sections 3 through 12 of this Agreement shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
Ownership. All trademarks, patents, copyrights and other intellectual property rights owned by either party on the date hereof shall continue to be owned solely by such party, and except as set forth herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any rights to any such intellectual property on the other party. HP shall retain sole ownership over the Platform and all software and/or other intellectual property utilized by HP hereunder (including, without limitation, any improvements or enhancements to any such software platform which occur during the term of this Agreement), and no license or other rights to any such software are conferred on Client hereunder. All suggestions, recommendations, bug-fixes, error-fixes or other communications from Client to HP regarding the Platform shall, upon submission to HP, be owned solely and exclusively by HP. All contact information and other data made available within the Platform (“Platform Data”) shall, as between HP and Client, remain owned solely and exclusively by HP and/or any licensors or other third parties that have made such data available to HP, and Client shall not make any use of any such Platform Data except to the limited extent expressly permitted herein. It is agreed and understood that Platform Data may be integrated into HP’s Platform database, and as such, made available in whole or in part to other clients in connection with each such client’s use of the Platform; provided, however, that HP shall not disclose any Client or User information regarding their Platform usage including searches conducted by Client.
Restrictions. Client shall not directly or indirectly reverse engineer, attempt to derive the source code, copy or reproduce all or any portion of the Platform, whether electronically, mechanically or otherwise, in any form including, but not limited to, the copying of presentation, style or organization. Client shall use the Platform solely for its intended purposes and shall not use the Platform for the benefit of any third party except as specifically contemplated under this Agreement. Client will not use the Platform: (a) in violation of any applicable law; (b) such that any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancel bots or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information are entered into the Platform; or (c) in violation of the any acceptable use policy or other policy posted at HP’s website or otherwise made available to Client from time to time. Client shall be solely responsible for: (i) ensuring that each of Client’s permitted users within its business complies with the terms set forth herein; and (ii) maintaining all passwords and access codes to the Platform, and refraining from sharing or otherwise permitting third parties to use any such passwords and/or access codes. Any other software included in the Platform is licensed subject to the additional terms of the applicable license, all of which are incorporated herein by reference. In addition, Client shall adhere to all usage and/or user limits set forth in any documentation provided to or made available to Client in connection with accessing the Platform, whether by hard copy or electronically. Client agrees not to scrape any of the Platform Data or use programmatic methods for harvesting any Platform Data without prior written consent from HP and in conjunction with the process specified in the Services Addendum.
Confidentiality. Each party agrees to treat as confidential all non-public information of the other party, not to use such confidential information for any purpose other than to the limited extent necessary to perform under this Agreement and not to disclose such confidential information to any third party except as may be reasonably required pursuant to this Agreement and subject to confidentiality obligations at least as protective as those set forth herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each of the parties shall use at least the same degree of care which it uses to prevent the disclosure of its own confidential information of like importance to prevent the disclosure of confidential information disclosed to it by the other party, provided, however, that in no event shall such degree of care be less than reasonable in light of general industry practice. The parties hereby agree that the terms set forth in this Agreement constitute confidential information of both parties and as such, neither party will disclose such terms to any third party other than such party’s legal counsel. Notwithstanding the foregoing, HP shall be entitled to list Client as a client on HP’s website and/or in marketing materials.

In addition, Client acknowledges that certain names, contact information, data and/or updates to data provided by HP to Client or otherwise made available by HP may not be accurate or current. Client is responsible, at Client’s sole cost and expense, for providing all equipment necessary to load and/or use the Platform.

Force Majeure. Excluding payment obligations hereunder, neither party shall be liable to the other party for failure or delay in performing its obligations hereunder if such failure or delay is due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, failure of third party software or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies or power.
Governing Law. The rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, without reference to conflict of law principles. Any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or the performance, breach or termination thereof, shall be finally settled by the appropriate court located solely and exclusively in Cook County, Illinois. Client agrees to such exclusive jurisdiction in Cook County, Illinois, and waives any jurisdictional claims in respect thereto (including, without limitation, forum non conveniens).
