1. License. Subject to this Agreement, and in consideration of Customer's payment of Fees, Idée grants to Customer, and Customer agrees to comply with, a non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, terminable, limited license to use the Services to develop, test, support and allow access to Customer Implementation.

Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to or through the Services, you (a) grant TinEye and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from such User Content, in the manner in and for the purposes for which the Services from time to time use such User Content; (b) represent and warrant that (i) you own and control all of the rights to the User Content that you post or otherwise distribute, or you otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Services; and (ii) the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.
If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users, you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to sublicense such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Services, as described in Section 6 of these Terms.
These licenses from you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. They are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Services. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these licenses to any successor operator of the Services. Our rights to “modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from” are necessary because the normal operation of the Services does this to your User Content when it processes it for use in the Services.
6. Our Limited License of Content to You
TinEye grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable license to access the Services and to view, copy and print the portions of the Content available to you through the Services, and to use the reports provided to you by the Services for any purpose relating to your User Content. Such license is subject to these Terms, and specifically conditioned upon the following: (i) you may only view, copy and print such portions of the Content for your own use; (ii) you may not modify or otherwise make derivative works of the Content, or reproduce, distribute or display the Content (except for page cacheing) except as expressly permitted in these Terms; (iii) you may not remove or modify any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices that have been placed in the Content; (iv) you may not use any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods; and (v) you may not use the Services or the Content other than for their intended purpose.
You represent and warrant that your use of the Services and the Content will be consistent with this license and will not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties, or violate any applicable law.
To request permission for uses of Content not included in this license, you may contact TinEye at the address set out at the bottom of these Terms.
7. Use of the Services
You agree not to post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create or otherwise publish through or as a result of using the Services any of the following:
Automated cease and desist letters or demands, or demands for payment or of any other kind, concerning alleged infringement by another person of your or any other person’s intellectual property or other rights (and for clarity, any TinEye Alert provided to you by the Service must be reviewed by you or your representative, but in any event an individual);
Any message, data, information, text, music, sound, photos, graphics, code or other material that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable;
Content that would constitute, encourage or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law;
Content that may infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual or proprietary right of any party;
Any use of the Services in violation of the foregoing violates these Terms and may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to use the Services.
8. Providing a Reliable and Secure Service
If you have spent any time reviewing the Services, you will hopefully have noticed that we take reliability and security seriously. We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our service operates all the time, and that it is a secure environment for your data. We use what we believe to be “best-of-class” hosting services and security technologies and services that we believe provide you with a secure and safe environment. More information about these services and technologies is available on the Site. However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable, the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, Internet intermediaries, your Internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use this Service, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability.
9. No Responsibility for Third-Party Services, Sites or Content
As a service to our users, the Site may contain links to third-party Web sites (“Third-Party Sites”) or third-party content (“Third-Party Content”) and may provide third-party services (“Third-Party Services”), including payment processors and other payment intermediaries that you may use in connection with your use of the Services. You use Third-Party Sites, Third-Party Content (together, the “Third Party Materials”) or Third-Party Services at your own risk.
TinEye makes no claim or representation regarding Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and provides them or links to them only as a convenience. Inclusion in the Services of Third-Party Materials does not imply TinEye's endorsement, adoption or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such Third-Party Materials. TinEye accepts no responsibility for reviewing changes or updates to, or the quality, content, policies, nature or reliability of Third-Party Materials, or Web sites linking to the Services. When you leave the Services, our terms and policies no longer govern, and when you use Third-Party Services their terms and policies apply. You should review applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
10. Warranty Disclaimer
The Site, the Content and the Services are provided to you on an “as is” basis without warranties from TinEye of any kind, either express or implied. You use the Site, the Content and the Services at your own risk. TinEye expressly disclaims all other warranties, express or implied, including without limitation implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. TinEye does not represent or warrant that Site, the Content or the Services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free.

11. Limitation of Liability; Indemnity
Without limitation of the foregoing, neither TinEye nor its affiliates or subsidiaries, their sponsors, contractors, advertisers, vendors or other partners, any of their successors or assigns, or any of their respective officers, directors, agents or employees (collectively, the “Released Parties”) shall be liable for any direct, special, indirect or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of use, loss of profits or loss of data, whether in an action in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence) or otherwise, arising out of or in any way connected with the use of or inability to use the Site, the Content or the Services, including without limitation any damages caused by or resulting from your reliance on the Site, the Content or the Services or other information obtained from TinEye or any other Released Party or accessible via the Site, the Content or the Services, or that result from mistakes, errors, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or email, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of god, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to TinEye or any other Released Party's records, programs or services.
In no event shall the aggregate liability of TinEye, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), product liability, strict liability or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of the Site, the Content or the Services exceed any compensation paid by you for access to or use of the Site, the Content or the Services, as the case may be, during the three months prior to the date of any claim.
You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless TinEye and the other Released Parties from any loss, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses, claims and proceedings arising out of (i) your use of the Site, the Content and the Services, including any claims made by any person that any of your User Content infringes the rights, including the intellectual property rights, of any third party, and (ii) any demand, claim, allegation, suit or proceeding that you initiate, cause, defend or otherwise participate in in relation to your User Content (or any other intellectual property of yours or any other third party other than TinEye) and arising from, related to occurring in connection with your use of the Services.
Notices that we give you (other than notice of amendment of these Terms, which is discussed in the introduction of these Terms) may be provided in any number of ways, depending on the circumstances. For example, we may email you or telephone you at the contact information you provide in your Registration Data. Or we may post a notice to Subscribers and Customers in the dashboard area of your account on the Site, or post the notice elsewhere on the Site. When we post notices on the Site, we post them in the area of the Site suitable to the notice. It is your responsibility to periodically review the Site for notices.
13. Applicable Law and Venue
The Services are controlled by TinEye and operated by it from its offices in Toronto, Ontario. You and TinEye both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in regard to the Services. Therefore, you and TinEye explicitly agree that all disputes, claims or other matters arising from or relating to your use of the Site, the Content or the Services will be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms.
Any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether preexisting, present or future) involving TinEye and arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms; (b) the Site, the Content or the Services; (c) oral or written statements, advertisements or promotions relating to these Terms or to the Site, the Content or the Services; or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms or the Site, the Content or the Services (collectively, a “Claim”), will be heard and resolved in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in Toronto, Ontario. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts.
If you choose to access the Services from locations other than Ontario, you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other jurisdiction and you agree to indemnify TinEye and the other Released Parties for your failure to comply with any such laws.
14. Termination/Modification of License and Site Offerings
Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, TinEye reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, without any notice or liability to you, to (a) terminate your license to use the Services, or any portion thereof; (b) block or prevent your future access to and use of all or any portion of the Services or Content; (c) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Services or Content; and (d) impose limits on the Services or Content. If we do so without cause we shall refund to you the prorated portion of any fees that you have prepaid to us.
15. Inactive Accounts; Termination of Agreement
If your account is inactive for at least two months, we may deactivate your account. Deactivated accounts are not deleted – they are placed in storage and can be restored. We will notify you by email if we decide to deactivate your account. If you know in advance that your account will be inactive at some time and don’t want us to deactivate it, let us know in advance at support[at]tineye.com . If after your account has been deactivated it stays inactive and we don’t hear from you, we may terminate it at any time and without notice.
You and TinEye may terminate your use of the Services including your agreement to these Terms at any time. If you terminate your use of the Services you must pay the fees applicable for the balance of the then current billing period (if your billing period is monthly, we will prorate your account to the nearest month-end after termination). When your TinEye account is terminated, your User Content will, shortly thereafter, not appear on the Services, except for User Content submitted to public areas of the Site such as the blog, forum, or product reviews, which may remain on the Site after termination. We may also retain an archival copy of your User Content after termination, and you hereby grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable license to maintain such archival copy for our internal business purposes.
If these Terms expire or terminate for any reason, Sections 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, and 16, and any representation or warranty you make in these Terms, shall survive indefinitely.
TinEye may reproduce and display Client’s logos, trademarks, trade names and similar identifying material on TinEye's website for the purpose of referring to Client as a customer of TinEye. If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. TinEye may assign or transfer any or all of its rights and obligations hereunder to any party without your consent. You are not permitted to assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of TinEye, and any such attempted assignment will be void and unenforceable. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and TinEye regarding your use of the Site, the Content and the Services, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications whether electronic, oral or written between you and TinEye regarding your use of them. The parties confirm that it is their wish that these Terms, as well as any other documents relating to this Terms, including notices, have been and shall be drawn up in the English language only. Les parties reconnaissent avoir convenue que la présente convention ainsi que tous documents, avis et procédures judiciaires qui pourront être exécutés, donnés ou intentées à la suite des présentes ou ayant un rapport, direct ou indirect, avec la présente convention soient rédigée en anglais.
