(a)  Certificates. A Certificate shall only be generated by Entrupy and may only be requested for Items verified by the System as Authentic in the final result. Licensee may display the Certificate for an Item or provide a link to the Certificate hosted by Entrupy solely on your website or social media accounts maintained and owned by you, your online listings of Items on e-commerce, or printed out for physical display.

Any attempted or actual breach of the Certificate Use Restrictions is a material breach of this Agreement and without affecting Entrupy’s other rights and remedies hereunder, will invalidate the Guarantee described in Section 2.1(c).

(b)  Evidence Reports. Upon your request and subject to your payment of additional fees, Entrupy may produce an evidence report supplementing the information provided for any Unidentified Item (the “Evidence Report”).

To provide you with further confidence in our System’s Item verification abilities, Entrupy offers a payout amounts for Items which we have issued a Certificate (the “Guarantee”) as further described in the Guarantee Policy. Such Guarantee will not apply if Entrupy invalidates an authentication or Certificate within fifteen (15) business minutes (i.e. minutes occurring during Entrupy’s business hours, as set forth in the Documentation and Guarantee Policy) of such authentication. The Guarantee is only available to, and must be claimed by, you, and not your Customers or any third parties. You are solely responsible for any promises you make to your Customers or any third parties based on the Guarantee, and any interactions with such Customers or any third parties. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, any attempted or actual breach of the Certificate Use Restrictions will invalidate any guarantee provided under this Agreement or the Guarantee Policy. The Guarantee is Entrupy’s sole and exclusive liability and responsibility for, and Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy for, any Item incorrectly authenticated by the System.  All disputes by you regarding the authenticity of an Item authenticated by Entrupy must be submitted in accordance with the Guarantee Policy, which includes, without limitation, completing a claims form and submitting proof of purchase.  Additional details of the Guarantee process, including how to file a dispute claim and additional restrictions and qualifications requirements, are available in the Guarantee Policy.

All risk of loss for any Hardware (including any replacement Hardware) shall pass to you upon Entrupy’s delivery of the Hardware to the applicable carrier or delivery service.

Hardware may only be used in connection with the applicable Entrupy-provided Software. You shall not sublease or in any manner deliver, transfer or otherwise relinquish possession of any of the Hardware. You must not share the Hardware or allow any party to access the Hardware except for your specifically authorized Users for use in accordance with this Agreement. Use of the Hardware (and any third-party software embedded therein) may be subject to additional terms and conditions, including from the manufacturer of such Hardware.

4.5  Open Source Software. Certain items of code provided with the Software are subject to “open source” or “free software” licenses (“OSS”), a list of which is available upon request. OSS is not subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, except for this section and the disclaimers and limitations of liability. Instead, each item of OSS is licensed under the terms of the license that accompanies such OSS.

4.6  Item Information and Reports. We own all information, date, and content generated or collected by the System about Items, including all Images, Certificates, Evidence Reports, and other reports accompanying the authentication or verification of Items.

During the Term, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, we grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, royalty-free license to use, display, and reproduce the Entrupy Marks, solely (a) as they appear on the Certificates, without modification, in your use, display and distribution of the Certificates for your internal business operations, (b) as they appear on any marketing materials provided by Entrupy in your distribution of such marketing materials, without modification, and (c) upon Entrupy’s prior written approval, on your website to promote your use of Entrupy’s services, provided that you do not suggest any partnership or endorsement by Entrupy of you or your business, products or services. We grant no rights in the Entrupy Marks other than those expressly granted in this section. You acknowledge our exclusive ownership of the Entrupy Marks and agree that all goodwill arising as a result of your use of the Entrupy Marks will inure solely to the benefit of Entrupy. You agree not to take any action inconsistent with such ownership. You shall not adopt, use, or attempt to register any trademarks, trade names, or service marks that are confusingly similar to the Entrupy Marks or in such a way as to create combination marks with the Entrupy Marks. At our request, you will modify or discontinue any use of the Entrupy Marks if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such use does not comply with this Agreement or our then-current trademark usage policies and guidelines. Any breach of this Section, or failure to sufficiently comply with Entrupy’s request for modification or discontinuance of use, in each case as determined by Entrupy in its sole discretion, shall be considered a material breach of this Agreement.

4.8  Updates.

(a)  We will make all Updates available to you as and when they become generally available to our other similarly situated customers during the Term. Updates may require updating the mobile application on the Hardware. Failure to install Updates (if applicable) may impact System performance and will invalidate our support or indemnification obligations with respect to the System.

(b)  Entrupy is not required to provide new Hardware to you during the Term. Entrupy may, however, at its sole discretion, elect to provide upgraded units to you to replace older Hardware (which shall not occur more than once in any twelve (12) month period), in which case Entrupy may charge you a fee for the set-up cost of such replacement units as set forth on our Hardware Replacement Fees schedule found at https://www.entrupy.com/replacement-fees/.  In such case, you must promptly return your replaced Hardware units.

5. SERVICES

5.1  Software Support.

(a)  We will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve issues with the Software in a timely manner. Problems with Software should be reported to us via email at support@entrupy.com. As promptly as reasonably possible following an update to any operating system or other software that the Software is dependent upon, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to modify the Software to remain compatible with the current and immediately prior major version of such software. We are not required to support versions of the Software other than the most current  version.

(b)  While we endeavor to keep the SaaS elements of the System available 24/7/365, service outages can and will occur, and we do not guarantee uptime or that the System will be continuously available or error free.  Certain authentications may require additional review or follow up, which may result in a delay in receipt of applicable results.

5.2  Hardware Support. In the event that you are unable to access or use the Software as a result of defective Hardware, you shall notify Entrupy via email at support@entrupy.com. If the problem cannot be resolved remotely, Entrupy may, at its sole discretion, repair or ship replacement Hardware after receipt of the defective Hardware from you. If you have met your maintenance responsibility under this Agreement, then the replacement will be at no cost to you; otherwise, you will pay Entrupy the applicable fees and costs for repairing or replacing such Hardware as may be found on our Hardware Replacement Fees schedule found at https://www.entrupy.com/replacement-fees/, as may be amended from time to time. You shall be responsible for any and all damage to the Hardware as a result of unauthorized downloads, vandalism, abuse, neglect or force majeure, regardless of whether such vandalism, abuse, neglect, or force majeure is caused by you or any other third party to whom you have granted access. By way of example and not limitation, damage caused by exposure to extreme conditions (heat, moisture) or improper handling (drops, impact) will be considered damage for which you are responsible.

6.1  System Access. Only Users may access the System. You must not provide or otherwise make available, or permit any third party to provide or make available, any log-in credentials to any individuals or entities other authorized Users in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and you are responsible for ensure that Users do not share their System log-in credentials with any other person, including other Users. You will ensure that each User uses the System in accordance with applicable laws and this Agreement. You are responsible for (a) all use of the System that occurs in connection with credentials associated with your Users, and (b) immediately reporting any suspected loss, compromise, or unauthorized use of such credentials or any other unauthorized use of or access to the System.

6.2  Connectivity. You are responsible for any network or internet connectivity required to access or use the System. An internet connection is required for the proper functioning of the Hardware, as well as to access the System’s cloud-based Software elements. The Hardware includes functionality that allows it to store Images if an internet connection is not available where scanning is performed, but the Hardware must connect to the internet to submit Images to the System for verification. We are not responsible for System performance issues related to internet or network connectivity problems, and any timelines related to authentication (i.e., time to provide initial or verified results) assume the Hardware is connected to the internet when the scanning is performed.

6.3  General. In addition to obligations identified elsewhere in this Agreement, you will provide access to such information, personnel and systems we reasonably require to support the System.

7. TERMS AND TERMINATION

7.1  Term. This Agreement is valid for the Term, unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement.

7.2  Subscription Period. Subscriptions shall be valid through your Initial Subscription Period.  After your Initial Subscription Period, and again after any subsequent Renewal Subscription Period, your Subscription will automatically renew (and your Payment Provider (as defined below) will automatically be charged) for an additional subsequent period of equivalent duration as your Initial Subscription Period (each, a “Renewal Subscription Period) at the then-current price for such Subscription, unless you cancel your Subscription at least seven (7) days prior to the Renewal Date via email to support@entrupy.com or through the administration pages of your account for the System. If you cancel your Subscription, you may use the System until the end of the then-current Subscription Period. You will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any Fees paid for any early termination of the then-current Subscription Period. 

7.3  Pausing a Subscription. You may also pause your Subscription at any time for a maximum period of one (1) calendar month per twelve (12) month period by having the Authorized Person (as defined in the Order Form) email Entrupy at support@entrupy.com (a “Subscription Pause Period”).

7.4  Termination by You. You may terminate this Agreement for a material breach of Entrupy that remains uncured thirty (30) days after you provide us with written notice thereof.

7.5  Suspension and/or Termination of Subscription by Entrupy. Entrupy has the right to, immediately and without notice, suspend or terminate any Subscription or access to System or portions thereof, including any account or access rights of you or any of your Users (including the right to sell or distribute authentication services to Customers) and/or revoke and invalidate any or all Certificates, if Entrupy deems in its sole discretion that (a) timely payment cannot be charged to your Payment Provider (as defined below) for any reason, (b) you or your Users or your Customers have materially breached any provision of the Agreement, (c) doing so is required for compliance with applicable laws, rules regulations, or third party agreements (e.g., where the provision of the System, or any component thereof is, or becomes, unlawful), or (d) doing so is necessary for the protection of Entrupy, its customers, users, employees, agents, business partners, service providers, business, or any other third parties. You agree that all such terminations or suspensions of Subscriptions or other rights granted herein, including cancellation of accounts, and/or revocations or invalidations of Certificates under this Section 7.5, shall be made in Entrupy’s sole discretion and that Entrupy shall not be liable to you or any third party for any such termination, suspension, revocation, or invalidation. For the avoidance of doubt, any breach by you or any of your Users or Customers of any of your representations or warranties set forth in this Agreement shall be deemed a material breach.

7.6  Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement: (a) the Subscription will end immediately and all rights and licenses granted herein that are not perpetual shall immediately terminate; (b) you will cease using and offering use of the System immediately; (c) you will return all Hardware in your possession within thirty (30) days; and (d) you will pay any Fees accrued prior to the effective date of termination. If you terminate the Agreement for cause, as described in Section 7.4, we will refund any prepaid Subscription Fees for periods following the date of termination within fourteen (14) days of the date Hardware is returned to Entrupy.

8. PAYMENTS

8.1  Fees. You will pay the amounts for the Subscription, per-unit Hardware setup fee, and any other additional fees listed on your Order Form (together, the “Fees”) on the date you place your order (with respect to the per-unit Hardware setup fee), by the Subscription Start Date (for Subscription Fees), or as otherwise indicated by Entrupy. Subsequent Subscription Fees will be charged on the Renewal Date based on the Software elements included and Subscription rates in effect on such date. Additional Fees, as detailed on the Order Form or otherwise agreed upon in writing, unless otherwise agreed in writing will be automatically charged to your Payment Provider, without further authorization, either during or following the end of each Subscription Period, including without limitation, if the number of Items verified during the Term exceeds the ordinary inclusions specified in the Subscription.  Some Items may also require different Fee amounts and therefore be excluded from the Subscription price. Such Fees, unless otherwise agreed in writing, will be charged, without further authorization, through your Payment Provider either during or following the end of each Subscription period. Please see Order Form for additional details.

8.2  Taxes. Fees do not include, and you will pay, all sales, use, excise, value-added and other taxes (“Taxes”) levied upon either Party related to the System, except for taxes on Entrupy’s net income. Taxes will be added to the Fees where Entrupy is required to collect Taxes under applicable law.

8.3  Payment Provider. You agree to pay the Fees specified when you purchase a Subscription. A valid credit card or online payment account (“Payment Provider”) is required to set up an Entrupy account. Your Payment Provider agreement, and not this Agreement, governs your use of the designated credit card or online transaction account. By providing your Payment Provider information, you authorize Entrupy, without additional notice, to charge your Payment Provider for all Fees incurred hereunder. You will keep Payment Provider information current at all times during the Term, and Entrupy may suspend or terminate your System access if we are unable to charge your Payment Provider. You hereby authorize us to automatically charge your specified payment without further notice on the Renewal Date(s) for recurring Subscriptions, and/or to place a hold on your payment method with respect to any unpaid charges for Subscriptions. Upon renewal of your Subscription, if Entrupy does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that Entrupy may either terminate or suspend your Subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider (or other payment method we have on file for you) until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Subscription will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).

8.4  Payment Processor. To the extent you are paying by credit card, all Fees are processed by a third party payment service (the “Payment Processor”) and you consent to the use of such service.  Currently, Entrupy uses Stripe, Inc. and its affiliates as its third party payment service (e.g., card acceptance, merchant settlement, and related services) and therefore by making any payments on or through Entrupy’s website or application, you agree to be bound by Stripe’s Privacy Policy (currently accessible at https://stripe.com/us/privacy) and its Terms of Service (currently accessible at https://stripe.com/us/terms) and hereby consent and authorize Entrupy and Stripe to share any information and payment instructions you provide to the other to complete your transactions. Entrupy reserves the right to change its Payment Processor(s) with or without notice to you.

8.5  Changes. We may change our charges and billing practices at any time, either by posting notice of such change via the System, on the Price Plan page, or on this page, or notifying you via email, provided that any such change will take effect on the following Renewal Date, so please check regularly for such notifications. If you would like to make any upgrade or downgrade to your Subscription, an Authorized Person (as defined in the Order Form) must make a request at least seven (7) days prior to the Renewal Date via email to support@entrupy.com. Upgrades or downgrades made during a Subscription Period will become effective for the following Subscription Period.

9.2  Limited Warranty by Entrupy.
