Highspot, Inc. Terms of Use

Last Updated: December 2, 2019

Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully because they are a binding agreement between you (“You” or “Customer”) and Highspot, Inc. (“Highspot” or “We”).

These Terms govern your use of the websites that link to these Terms and also apply to your access to, and use of, the Highspot storage, searching and sharing services, and all updates, modifications and improvements to the foregoing (the “Services”). In these Terms, the word “Sites” refers to each of these websites and the services offered on those Sites. You automatically agree to these Terms and to our Privacy Policy simply by using or logging into the Sites. We may modify these Terms at any time so be sure to check back regularly. By continuing to use or log in to a Site after these Terms have changed, you indicate your agreement to the revised Terms.

Highspot Customers: Your use of the Services is governed pursuant to a separate Master Subscription Agreement by and between You and Highspot (the “Agreement”), and these Terms are incorporated into your Agreement. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency among the following documents, the order of precedence shall be: (1) your applicable Order Form, (2) your Agreement, and (3) these Terms. All capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in your Agreement.

I. The Services

A. Access to and Use of the Services by Highspot Customers and their Users

You may access and use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and applicable laws.

In the event that a third party, such as your employer, created your account or pays for your account under a subscription service, that party will have certain rights to your account, including the right to manage your account, reset your password, suspend or cancel your account, view your account activity, and read and/or store Customer Data in your account. In some cases, an account may be assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer or educational institution.

Before you may access and use the Services, you will need to register with Highspot and create an account. When creating your account, you must provide and maintain up-to-date, accurate, and complete information about you as may be requested during the registration process. You may not access any third party’s account and you may not authorize any third party to access your account or use the Services on your behalf. Each Highspot account may only be used by a single person. You agree to contact Highspot immediately in the event of any suspected or actual misuse or breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. You are solely responsible for your account activity and you must keep your account and passwords confidential and secure. Highspot is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from any unauthorized use of your account.

In addition, you agree not to: damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Services (or any network connected to the Services); resell or redistribute the Services or any part of it; use any unauthorized means to modify, reroute, or gain access to the Services or attempt to carry out these activities; or use any automated process or service (such as a bot, a spider, or periodic caching of information stored by Highspot) to access or use the Services. You also agree that you will not and will not encourage or assist any third party to:

  • modify, alter, tamper with, repair, or otherwise create derivative works of any Services;
  • reverse-engineer, disassemble, or decompile the software used to provide or access the Services, or attempt to discover or recreate the source code used to provide or access the Services;

  • cause, in Highspot’s sole discretion, inordinate burden on the Services or Highspot’s system resources or capacity; or
  • share passwords or other access information or devices or otherwise authorize any third party to access or use the Services.

You will immediately notify your system administrator and Highspot in writing of any unauthorized use of (a) any Customer Data (b) your account, or (c) the Services and you agree to take reasonable steps to terminate such unauthorized use. Upon Highspot’s reasonable request, you will cooperate with and provide assistance to Highspot in connection with any such unauthorized use.

B. Privacy Policy

Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information on how Highspot collects, uses, and discloses personally identifiable information from its users.

C. Analytics of Customer Data to Improve the Services

Highspot may store and use metadata associated with Customer’s use of the Services, including but not limited to IP addresses, stored sessions, and network metadata (collectively, “Customer Metadata”) for the purpose of providing the Services to Customer. In addition, Highspot may track and analyze the usage of the Services for purposes of security and helping Highspot improve both the Services and the user experience in using the Services. For example, we may use this information to understand and analyze trends or track which of our features are used most often to improve product functionality. Highspot may aggregate Customer Data (electronic data and information submitted by or for Customer to the Services, excluding Non-Highspot Applications) and Customer Metadata with data and metadata from other Highspot customers or other sources, provided that such data and metadata is not identifiable as Customer Data or Customer Metadata and Customer cannot be recognized as its source. Highspot may share anonymous usage data with Highspot’s service providers for the purpose of helping Highspot in such tracking, analysis, and improvements. Additionally, Highspot may share such anonymous usage data on an aggregate basis in the normal course of operating our business; for example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our Services.

D. Updates to the Services

Highspot reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make necessary unscheduled deployments of changes, updates, or enhancements to the Services at any time. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a component of the Services altogether.

II. The Sites

A. Modifications and Termination of the Sites

We reserve the right to modify our Sites at any time, with or without notice to you. For example, we may add or remove functionality or features, and we may suspend or stop a particular feature altogether. We also reserve the right to charge a fee for any of our features at any time. If you don’t like any changes, you can stop using our Sites at any time.

B. Content You Post on the Sites

We may provide opportunities for you to post text, photographs, videos, or other content (collectively, “Content”) on the Sites. You can only post Content if you own all the rights to that Content, or if another rights holder has given you permission. You do not transfer ownership of your Content simply by posting it. However, by posting Content, you grant us, our agents, licensees, and assigns an irrevocable, perpetual (non-exclusive) right and permission to reproduce, encode, store, copy, transmit, publish, post, broadcast, display, publicly perform, adapt, modify, create derivative works of, exhibit, and otherwise use your Content. Without those rights, we couldn’t offer our Sites. Please note that this license continues even if you stop using our Sites.

You agree to indemnify, release, and hold us harmless from any and all liability, claims, actions, loss, harm, damage, injury, cost, or expense arising out of any Content you post.

Although Highspot has no obligation to screen, edit, or monitor any of the Content posted to the Sites, Highspot reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen, or edit any Content posted or stored on the Site at any time and for any reason without notice, and you are solely responsible for creating backup copies of and replacing any Content you post or store on the Site at your sole cost and expense. Enforcement of the user content or conduct rules set forth in these Terms is solely at Highspot’s discretion, and failure to enforce such rules in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce such rules in other instances.

Keep in mind that if you send us any information, ideas, suggestions, or other communications to us, those communications will not be confidential. Moreover, unless we tell you otherwise, we reserve the right to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such communications without any obligation to you.

C. Content Posted by Others on the Sites

We are not responsible for, and do not endorse, Content posted by any other person. Accordingly, we may not be held liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused to you in connection with any Content posted by another member. You acknowledge and agree that Highspot is not responsible or liable in any manner for any third-party content and undertakes no responsibility to update or review any third-party content. Similarly, we are not responsible for any third-party content you access with the Sites, and you irrevocably waive any claim against us with respect to such sites and third-party content.

D. Marketing and Promotions; Third-Party Products and Services

Highspot may participate in marketing and promotions with third parties on the Site or may otherwise provide information about or links to third-party products or services on the Site. Highspot does not endorse or make any representations or warranties regarding any third-party products, services, promotions, or vendors. Your business dealings or correspondence with, or participation in promotions of, such third parties, and any terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings or promotions, are solely between you and such third party. Highspot is not responsible or liable in any manner for any third-party products or services, for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any products, services, dealings, or promotions or as the result of the presence of such third parties or third-party information on the Site.

E. Your Use of the Sites

Please do not use the Sites in a way that violates any laws, infringes on anyone’s rights, is offensive, or interferes with the Sites or any features on the Sites (including any technological measures we employ to enforce these Terms).

It should be common sense, so we won’t bore you with a list of things you shouldn’t do. But if we (in our sole discretion) determine that you have acted inappropriately, we reserve the right to take down Content, terminate your account, prohibit you from using the Sites, and take appropriate legal actions.

Using our Site does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights to the content you access. You may not use content from our Sites unless you obtain permission from us or its owner, or unless you are otherwise permitted by law.

When you use a Site or send communications to us through a Site, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive electronically any communications related to your use of a Site. We may communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that are provided to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. All notices from us intended for receipt by you shall be deemed delivered and effective when sent to the email address you provide to us. Please note that by submitting Content, creating a user account, or otherwise providing us with your email address, postal address, or phone number, you are agreeing that we or our agents may contact you at that address or number in a manner consistent with our Privacy Policy.

F. Intellectual Property on the Sites

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable law, Highspot has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Highspot’s sole discretion, subscribers or account holders who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Highspot may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Site and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.

If you believe that anything on or in the Sites infringes upon any copyright which you own or control, you may file a notification of such infringement with our Designated Agent as set forth below.
