Any information that a receiving party knows or has reason to know (either because such information is marked or otherwise identified by the disclosing party orally or in writing as confidential or proprietary, has commercial value, or because it is not generally known in the relevant trade or industry) is “Confidential Information” of the disclosing party and will remain the sole property of the disclosing party. Such Confidential Information includes but is not limited to data, information (including personally identifiable information), ideas, materials, specifications, procedures, schedules, software, technical processes and formulas, source code, product designs, sales, cost, and other unpublished financial information, product and business plans, advertising revenues, usage rates, advertising relationships, projections, marketing data and other similar information provided by a party. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer Data shall be deemed Confidential Information of Patch Retention. Each party agrees that it will not disclose, use, modify, copy, reproduce, or otherwise divulge such Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written approval of the disclosing party except that the receiving party shall have the right to disclose such Confidential Information to the extent required by applicable law or to the directors, officers or employees of the receiving party who have a need to know such Confidential Information in order to perform its obligations under the Agreement and to the extent such directors, officers or employees are subject to obligations of confidentiality and non-disclosure that are substantially similar to the obligations set forth in the Agreement. The prohibitions contained in this Section will not apply to information (i) already lawfully known to the receiving party prior to such disclosure by the disclosing party; (ii) independently developed by the receiving party without access to or use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information; (iii) disclosed in published materials; (iv) generally known to the public; or (v) lawfully obtained from any third party. In addition, a party will not be considered to have breached its obligations under the Agreement to the extent Confidential Information is required to be disclosed by any governmental authority, provided that, to the extent legally practicable, the receiving party advises the disclosing party prior to making such disclosure in order that the disclosing party may object to such disclosure, take action to ensure confidential treatment of the Confidential Information, or take such other action as it considers appropriate to protect the Confidential Information.
Dispute Resolution; Governing Law.
In the event of a dispute or mistake between a Merchant and User that involves privacy issues or legal regulations, Patch Retention may in its sole discretion unilaterally make adjustments to the User account. Patch Retention will generally defer disputes regarding points and rewards to the Merchant to satisfy as it will.
To the extent any disputes arise under the Agreement or otherwise between the parties, the parties will first attempt in good faith to resolve their dispute informally. This Agreement is governed by the State of Utah and the merchant expressly agrees to the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or dispute with Patch Retention in the federal and state courts within the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the District of Utah.
To the extent permitted by law, and subject to any and all applicable laws pertaining to sovereign immunity and maximum liability, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Patch Retention and its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, and representatives harmless from and against any third-party suit, proceeding, assertion against any damages, judgments, liability, costs, and expenses (including without limitation any reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred arising from your material breach of this Agreement, your unauthorized use or misuse of the Patch Retention Programs or any unauthorized combination of the Patch Retention with any hardware, software, products, data or other materials not specified or provided by Patch Retention.
Limitation of Liability.
The Merchant acknowledges and agrees that in no event shall Patch Retention or any of Patch Retention’s officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents, or representatives be liable to the Merchant or any other party for any special, indirect, incidental, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages or loss of goodwill in any way, whether such liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, products liability or otherwise arising from or relating to this agreement or resulting from the use or inability to use the services or the performance or non-performance of any equipment, including the failure of essential purpose, even if Patch Retention has been notified of the possibility or likelihood of such damages occurring. The Merchant agrees that Patch Retention’s liability hereunder for damages, regardless of the form of action, will not exceed the total amount actually paid by the Merchant hereunder for the services and equipment giving rise to the damages. Notwithstanding the above, the liability of the Merchant may be increased to include Patch Retention’s costs of collection of fees or any other amounts due hereunder, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs. The parties agree that the amounts stated herein are fair under the circumstances.
Patch Retention has no liability of any kind to You or any other person relating to any Third Party Content, including, without limitation, mistake, misstatement of law, omission, falsehood, defamation, obscenity, pornography, profanity, opinion, representation, and any other content contained in the Third Party Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Third Party Content. Statements of opinion and commentary in Third Party Content are those of the third party and, unless Patch Retention expressly states in writing to the contrary, Patch Retention neither endorses nor adopts as its belief any such statements. Patch Retention may provide information in articles Patch Retention posts or links to through the Website only for educational and general informational purposes and not as professional advice. Patch Retention has made no attempt to verify any information contained in any such articles.
All notices must be substantiated in writing. The merchant may send written notice to Patch Retention via email at email@example.com. If Merchant communicates with Patch Retention over the phone, Merchant may request an email confirmation of the correspondence.
Merchant may not, without the prior written consent of Patch Retention, assign the Agreement, in whole or in part, either voluntarily or by operation of law, and any attempt to do so will be a material default of the Agreement and will be void. The Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the respective parties hereto, their respective successors in interest, legal representatives, heirs, and assigns.
No Third-Party Beneficiaries.
The Agreement is solely for the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns, and does not confer any rights or remedies on any other person or entity.
The Merchant Agreement may be changed only by written agreement signed by both Patch Retention and Merchant. The failure of either party to exercise or enforce any of its rights under the Agreement will not act as a waiver of subsequent breaches and the waiver of any breach will not act as a waiver of subsequent breaches.
If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law and the other provisions of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
If either party is prevented from performing any of its obligations under the Agreement due to any cause beyond the party’s reasonable control including, without limitation, an act of God, fire, flood, explosion, terrorism, war, embargo, government regulation, civil or military authority, acts or omissions of carriers, transmitters, providers, or acts of vandals, or hackers. The time for that party’s performance will be extended for the period of the delay or failure to perform due to such occurrence, except that you will not be excused from the payment of any sums of money owed by you to Patch Retention provided prior to the force majeure event.
The Merchant Agreement or access to online tools without a Merchant Agreement will not be construed as creating or constituting a partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship between the parties. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent.
Compliance with Laws.
Each party will comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and ordinances relating to their performance hereunder. All messages and communication sent by Merchant shall comply with TCPA regulations and CANN SPAM guidelines.
The Agreement will constitute the entire agreement between Patch Retention and you with respect to the subject matter hereof and all prior oral or written agreements, representations or statements with respect to such subject matter are superseded hereby.
