Thank You For Choosing Authentic8!

Legalese can be tedious and heavy. Authentic8 wants to deliver a valuable service, but there are some basic ground rules, which are described below. Please read the complete Authentic8 Terms of Service below, which is the controlling agreement, but basically:

  • The Authentic8 Service is accessible directly over the internet via Authentic8’s client software application or the browser. There is no requirement for Authentic8 to visit your facilities or access your corporate network.
  • When you register to use Authentic8, we store the information you give us, as well as log information. These data elements can be anonymized and/or encrypted.
  • Your data is yours. If you leave our service, we give you mechanisms to export and delete it from our systems.
  • We make diligent efforts to protect your data. You can also configure product in a manner which minimizes your surface area of exposure and limits what data you share in our system. You should configure and use the product accordingly.
  • We can't always anticipate problems with other websites or web services, and so we can't be responsible for your relationship with those third parties.
  • Please don't attempt to decompile or otherwise reverse engineer our software.
  • Likewise, we take a rather dim view of someone trying to hack or spoof Authentic8 so please don't attack our service.
  • Please don't do anything illegal or infringe the rights of others using Authentic8. We reserve the right cooperate with the appropriate law enforcement or civil authorities.
  • We believe in rapid iteration, and so we're always updating Authentic8, including the App software you may install on your computer. We do this to give you access to new features, as well as to constantly improve security. Customer communication is an important part of our business model, so we’ll attempt to keep you posted about changes we think you need to know about.

Such Order Form will list, at the least, the Service ordered and the associated fees. The “Subscription Term” shall include the initial subscription term identified on the Order Form (or if not expressed therein, an initial one (1) year term) and any renewal term, whether by express mutual agreement or Customer’s continued use of the Authentic8 Service. Unless stated otherwise in the Order Form, the initial Subscription Term shall commence upon Authentic8’s acceptance of the Order Form.

The Subscription Term will renew for subsequent terms of one (1) year upon the mutual agreement of the parties (or for a longer term as expressly agreed to by the Parties) or Customer’s continued use of the Authentic8 Service, and shall be subject to this Agreement, unless expressly memorialized otherwise in a writing signed by Authentic8 and Customer.
  7. SUSPENSION; TERMINATION.
    1. Without limiting other available remedies, Authentic8 reserves the right to disable Customer’s account and suspend access to the Authentic8 Service if Customer has undisputed amounts more than 30 days past due.

In no event shall Authentic8 suspend access to the Authentic8 Service without first notifying Customer of the nature of the problem.
    2. A party may terminate this Agreement with written notice (i) if the other party breaches a material term of this Agreement and fails to correct the breach within 30 days following written notice specifying the breach.

Upon termination, Customer shall promptly uninstall and destroy all copies of Authentic8 IP in Customer’s possession or control. Authentic8 will have no liability for any costs, losses, damages, or liabilities arising out of or related to Authentic8’s exercise of its termination rights under this Agreement. Any payment obligations as of the expiration or termination (or that relate to activity during the Subscription Term) will remain in effect.

    2. The Receiving Party will (i) take at least reasonable measures to prevent the unauthorized disclosure or use of Confidential Information, and limit access to those employees, affiliates, service providers and agents, on a need to know basis and who are bound by confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those contained herein; and (ii) not use or disclose any Confidential Information to any third party, except as part of its performance under these Terms and as required to be disclosed to legal or financial advisors to the Receiving Party or in connection with a due diligence process that the Receiving Party is undergoing, provided that any such disclosure shall be governed by confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those contained herein.
    3. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information if the disclosure is necessary to comply with a valid court order or subpoena (in which case the Receiving Party will, unless expressly prohibited by the terms of the court order or subpoena, promptly notify the disclosing party and provide reasonable and good faith cooperation to the Disclosing Party if the Disclosing Party chooses to contest the disclosure requirement, seek confidential treatment of the information to be disclosed, or to limit the nature or scope of the information to be disclosed).
  10. UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CUSTOMERS. 
    1. U.S. Government Rights. The Authentic8 Service offerings are “commercial items” as that term is defined at FAR 2.101. If Customer is an Executive Agency (as defined in FAR 2.101) of the U.S. Federal Government (“Government”), Authentic8 provides the Authentic8 Service, including any related technical data and/or professional services in accordance with the following: (a) If a right to access the Authentic8 Service is procured by or on behalf of any Executive Agency (other than an Executive Agency within the Department of Defense (DoD)), the Government is granted, in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Computer Software), only those rights in technical data and software customarily provided to Authentic8’s customers as such rights are described in this Agreement; (b) If a right to access the Authentic8 Service is procured by or on behalf of any Executive Agency within the DoD, the Government is granted, in accordance with DFARS 227.7202-3 (Rights in commercial computer software or commercial computer software documentation), only those rights in technical data and software that are customarily provided to Authentic8’s customers as such rights are described in this Agreement. In addition, DFARS 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) applies to technical data provided by Authentic8 to an Executive Agency within the DoD.

Any rights requested by the Government and not granted under this Section 10 must be expressly agreed to in writing signed by Authentic8.

    2. Federal Prime Contract Terms and Conditions.

In addition, FAR 52-212-4 (j) is not applicable to these Terms because the Authentic8 App and Authentic8 Services are delivered electronically. The tailoring is in accordance with customary commercial practice and does not tailor any of the clauses set forth in FAR 12.302(b) that are not permitted to be tailored. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Order Form, FAR 52.212-4 is not a flow-down to Federal subcontractors and shall not be included in the event the Authentic8 Services are provided indirectly to the Government via a subcontract agreement between Authentic8 and a prime contractor (a “Subcontract”).
    3. Federal Prime Contract or Subcontract Terms and Conditions. Any right to terminate for breach under Section 7 (Suspension; Termination) will be subject to the Contract Disputes Act for Federal end users if the termination for breach is disputed. Authentic8’s right to defend under Section 12 (Indemnification) is subject to the requirements of 28 U.S.C. §516.

    1. In the event Customer is provided written permission by Authentic8 to resell or distribute the Authentic8 Services described on the applicable Order Form, Customer represents and warrants that (i) it shall conduct such resale or distribution in a manner which contractually binds Customer’s customer to these Terms in privity of contract with Authentic8 and (ii) it shall be responsible for its customers acts and omissions and compliance with these Terms.
    2. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Authentic8 has entered into a definitive reseller agreement with the party purchasing Authentic8 Services for resale, such terms shall take precedence over the terms herein.
  15. MISCELLANEOUS.
    1. The parties are independent contractors, and no branch or agency, partnership, association, joint venture, employee-employer, or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. This Agreement is intended for the sole and exclusive benefit of the parties and is not intended to benefit any third party. Only the parties to this Agreement may enforce it.
    2. Neither party shall be liable for default if nonperformance is caused by an occurrence beyond the reasonable control of such Party, to include without limitation, acts of God or the public enemy, acts of the Government in either its sovereign or contractual capacity, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, strikes, unusually severe weather, and delays of common carriers. The non-performing party will make reasonable efforts to notify the other Party as soon as it is reasonably possible after the commencement of any excusable delay, setting forth the full particulars in connection therewith, and shall remedy such occurrence with all reasonable dispatch, and shall promptly give written notice to such Party upon the cessation of such occurrence. Authentic8 is not, however, responsible for the acts of our subcontractors, and access to the Authentic8 Service is dependent on Customer’s ability to access the internet, which Authentic8 is not responsible for.
    3. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, as if performed wholly within the state and without giving effect to the principles of conflict of law. Any legal action or proceeding arising under this Agreement will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Santa Clara County, California and the parties hereby consent to such venue and personal jurisdiction. If any portion of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
    4. Neither party may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without the other party’s prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party, in connection with a merger, reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of the assets or equity of such party, may assign this Agreement in its entirety to such party’s successor without the other party’s consent. Any attempt to assign this Agreement other than as permitted above will be null and void.
    5. Except as expressly provided otherwise herein, all notices required or permitted under this Agreement will be in writing and delivered by courier or overnight delivery services, or by certified mail, and in each instance will be deemed given upon receipt. All communications to Authentic8 shall be addressed to Authentic8, Attn: General Counsel, 333 Twin Dolphin Dr, Suite 112, Redwood City, CA 94065 and all communications to Customer shall be sent to the Customer address set forth on the Order Form or to such other address as may be specified by either party to the other in accordance with this Section.
    6. Either Party’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of the waiving party. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
