6. Security of Customer Personal Information
6.1 Customer Personal Information definition
“Customer Personal Information” means information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual, household, or device that is: (a) disclosed to us at any time by you, your Customer Users, or your End Users; or (b) processed or accessed at any time by us in connection with or incidental to this Agreement. Customer Personal Information does not include anonymized, aggregated, or deidentified data; restrictions on our use of Customer Personal Information do not apply to anonymized, aggregated, or deidentified data even if such data was created or derived from Customer Personal Information.
6.2 Our protection and use of Customer Personal Information
We will maintain appropriate technical and organizational safeguards for protection of the security and confidentiality of Customer Personal Information. Those safeguards will include measures for preventing access, use, disclosure, or transfer of Customer Personal Information other than for the Authorized Uses of Customer Data listed in Section 3.2 or as otherwise directed by you. We will not sell Customer Personal Information. We may disclose and transfer Customer Personal Information to third parties, including sub-processors, vendors, consultants, and other service providers: (a) who require access to or use of Customer Personal Information to provide technology or services to us or you in connection with the Authorized Uses of Customer Data, provided that such third parties are subject to appropriate data security and confidentiality obligations with respect to such Customer Personal Information; or (b) as otherwise directed by you. Despite our security efforts, we cannot guarantee or warrant that Customer Personal Information will not be accessed, acquired, disclosed for an improper purpose, altered, or destroyed by an unauthorized person or as a result of a breach of our security safeguards. Therefore, you should only share Customer Personal Information with us in connection with the Services to the minimum extent necessary.
6.3 Your responsibilities for Customer Personal Information
You are responsible for all compliance with Applicable Law relating to Customer Personal Information. You represent and warrant that you have complied with all Applicable Law and have provided the required notices or received the proper authority or consent to allow us to collect and process Customer Personal Information from you, your Customer Users, and your End Users to provide the Services and for the Authorized Uses of Customer Data. You acknowledge and agree that with respect to Customer Personal Information, as between you and us, you are the “owner” or “controller” and we are the “processor” as those terms are defined in Applicable Law relating to Customer Personal Information. You are responsible for responding to End User requests under Applicable Law relating to Customer Personal Information (“Requests”) and providing End Users with required notifications. If we receive a Request, we will inform you of the Request and inform the End User to make the Request directly to you. To the extent we assist you with your compliance obligations under Applicable Law relating to Customer Personal Information, you shall pay or reimburse us for any time spent by us for such assistance at our then-standard or other reasonable professional services rate and any out-of-pocket costs reasonably incurred.
6.4 Security Incident definition
“Security Incident” means any suspected or actual unauthorized access, acquisition, disclosure, use, theft, loss, destruction, alteration, or other compromise of: (a) Customer Personal Information in our possession or control; (b) your account, or any other portion of our Platform or other systems that contain Customer Personal Information; or (c) any of your access credentials to our Platform or the Services.
6.5 Security Incident obligations
The party discovering any Security Incident shall give the other party notice of the Security Incident as soon as practical, and no more than 3 business days after discovering the Security Incident. To the extent that Applicable Law requires a notification of the Security Incident to be provided to the subjects of the Customer Personal Information, governmental authorities, or other third parties, you are responsible for such notification, but you must obtain our written consent to name or otherwise identify Seek AI in any such notification. We are also permitted (but not required) to send any notification of the Security Incident under Applicable Law.
7. Confidential Information
7.1 Confidential Information definition
“Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. The Confidential Information of each party includes business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party. Seek AI Confidential Information includes the terms and conditions of any Order Form (including pricing) but not the existence of an Order Form. However, Confidential Information does not include any information that (a) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (b) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (c) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (d) was independently developed by the Receiving Party.
7.2 Confidential Information obligations
The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care)(a) not to use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement and (b) to limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its employees, contractors, and third parties who need access for purposes consistent with this Agreement. On the expiration or termination of the Agreement, at the request and option of the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party shall promptly return to the Disclosing Party all copies, whether in written, electronic, or other form or media, of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, or destroy all such copies and certify in writing to the Disclosing Party that such Confidential Information has been destroyed. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the Receiving Party may retain a copy of such Confidential Information as is reasonably necessary for record retention, as required by Applicable Law, legal process, or governmental request, or to enforce or defend the Receiving Party’s rights or carry out the Receiving Party’s obligations, provided that the Receiving Party continues to treat the Confidential Information as Confidential Information under this Section 7 for as long as it retains it.
7.3 Confidential Information use exceptions
The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information as authorized by the Disclosing Party or as permitted by this Agreement, including the Authorized Uses of Customer Data. The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required by Applicable Law, legal process, or governmental request; provided that the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. To the extent that Confidential Information includes Customer Personal Information, the provisions of Section 6 on Customer Personal Information shall control in the event of a conflict with this Section 7.

8.3 DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY WARRANTED IN THIS AGREEMENT AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SERVICES AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS, DATA, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, AND SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR ON THE PLATFORM ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS,” AND WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY. We expressly disclaim any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. We expressly disclaim any warranties of system integration, non-interference, absence of any defects (whether latent or patent), or security of data. We do not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, completeness, or usability of information or materials provided in connection with our Services, found on our Platform, or linked to our Platform. We expressly disclaim any warranty related to third-party websites or other third-party content that may be accessed through our Services or our Platform. We make no warranty or representation on the basis of trade usage, course of dealing, or course of performance. We do not warrant or represent that the Services or any other materials, data, software, products, or services provided under this Agreement or on the Platform will meet your requirements, comply with Applicable Law, generate enforceable obligations, or that the operation of them will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that all errors will be corrected. You acknowledge that our obligations under this Agreement are for the benefit of Customer only. The Services may be subject to limitations, delays, and other problems inherent in the use of the internet and electronic communications. We are not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or other damages resulting from such problems.
Your indemnification of Seek AI. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us, our affiliates, and our third-party providers, licensors, and suppliers, along with our and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents, harmless from any claims, damages, losses, or costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) arising out of (a) the use of the Services, breach of this Agreement, or violation of any Applicable Law by you, any Customer User, any End User, or any person to whom you provide access to the Services; or (b) any Security Incident to the extent caused by an act or omission of you, any Customer User, any End User, or any person to whom you provide access to the Services.
10. Limitations of Liability
WE HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE TO LIMIT CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES (OR OTHER MONETARY RELIEF) AGAINST US TO DIRECT AND ACTUAL DAMAGES REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY. This means that you will not seek any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, treble, or punitive damages from us. These disallowed damages include, but are not limited to, damages arising out of (a) unauthorized access to, loss, or theft of your account, information, or data or that of your Customer Users or End Users; (b) lost profits, costs of delay, failure of delivery, or business interruption; (c) costs of procurement of substitute goods, services, or technology; or (d) liabilities to third parties arising from any source. These limitations apply regardless of the cause of the damages, including negligence by us or our third-party providers, licensors, or suppliers. These limitations apply even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. These limitations apply without regard to whether other provisions of this Agreement have been breached or proven ineffective. These limitations also apply to any claims you may bring against any third party to the extent that we would be required to indemnify that third party for such claim.
WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OUT OF OUR CONTROL. You agree that we are not liable for delays, problems, or damages caused by you or a third party, by any act of nature, by any act beyond our reasonable control (for example, war, terrorist acts, labor disputes, government actions, pandemics), or by any criminal activity by someone unrelated to us.
YOU AGREE TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF DAMAGES PAYABLE BY US. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF SEEK AI, OUR AFFILIATES, AND OUR THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS, LICENSORS, OR SUPPLIERS ARISING OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT IS LIMITED TO THE FEES THAT YOU PAID TO USE THE RELEVANT SERVICES IN THE 12 MONTHS BEFORE OUR BREACH OR THE FIRST INCIDENT GIVING RISE TO OUR LIABILITY.
YOU AND WE AGREE TO LIMIT THE DEADLINE TO BRING CLAIMS. To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, you and we each agree that all claims related to this Agreement must be brought within 2 years of the date the claim arises (even if Applicable Law provides for a longer statute of limitations).
YOU AND WE WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY. The limitations of liability in this Section 10 constitute an important part of this Agreement and are among the reasons you and we are willing to enter into this Agreement. Without these limitations of liability, the provisions of this Agreement, including the economic terms, would be substantially different.
11.1 Summary of dispute resolution procedures
By entering into this Agreement, you are agreeing to resolve any dispute with us informally, and, if it cannot be resolved informally, through binding arbitration (unless you opt out) and to waive your rights to participate in any class action suit (unless you opt out) or to a jury trial.
11.2 Good faith negotiation of disputes
For any and all disputes or claims you have, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve your claim by sending a written description of your claim to email@example.com. You and we each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. You agree that you may not commence any arbitration or court proceeding unless you and we are unable to resolve the claim within 60 days after we receive your claim description and you have made a good faith effort to resolve your claim directly with us during that time.
11.3 Binding arbitration
YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR DISPUTES IN ANY WAY RELATED TO OR CONCERNING THE AGREEMENT OR OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY BILLING DISPUTES, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. This includes any claims against other parties relating to the Services provided or billed to you (such as our third-party providers, licensors, and suppliers) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. THE ARBITRATOR MUST FOLLOW THIS AGREEMENT AND CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES).
11.4 Your choice to opt-out of arbitration
Notwithstanding the above, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT AND NOT BY ARBITRATION IF YOU OPT OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE YOU ENTERED INTO YOUR ORDER FORM (the “Opt Out Deadline”). You must opt out by the Opt Out Deadline for each Order Form. You may opt out of these arbitration procedures by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and clearly stating that you wish to opt out of the arbitration procedures in the Agreement. Any opt-out received after the Opt Out Deadline will not be valid and you will be required to pursue your claim in arbitration.
11.5 Arbitration procedures
If we are unable to resolve your claim within 60 days despite those good faith efforts, then either you or we may start arbitration. To begin arbitration, you must send a written letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent at Seek AI Inc. c/o Corporation Service Company, 80 State Street, Albany, NY, 12207 - 2543 and to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You may download or copy a form of notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration of all disputes will be administered by the AAA under its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is commenced, except to the extent any of those rules conflicts with this Agreement, in which case this Agreement will govern. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org. The arbitration of all disputes will be conducted by a single arbitrator, who will be selected using the following procedure: (a) the AAA will send the parties a list of five candidates; (b) if the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator from that list, each party will return its list to the AAA within 10 days, striking up to two candidates, and ranking the remaining candidates in order of preference; (c) the AAA will appoint as arbitrator the candidate with the highest aggregate ranking; and (d) if for any reason the appointment cannot be made according to this procedure, the AAA may exercise its discretion in appointing the arbitrator. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA rules. If you initiate the arbitration, you are required to pay AAA’s initial filing fee. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys’ fees. In addition, for claims under $75,000 as to which you provided notice and negotiated in good faith as required above before initiating arbitration, if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. If we are the prevailing party, we may seek reimbursement of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless prohibited under Applicable Law.
11.6 Class action waiver
YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, MASS, OR CONSOLIDATED ACTION. If we believe that any claim you have filed in arbitration or in court is inconsistent with this limitation, then you agree that we may seek an order from a court determining whether your claim is within the scope of this class action waiver. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that any part of this class action waiver is unenforceable with respect to any claim, this class action waiver will not apply to that claim, but will still apply to any and all other claims that you or we may assert in that or any other action.
11.7 Your choice to opt-out of the class action waiver
Notwithstanding the above, YOU MAY OPT-OUT OF THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER BEFORE THE OPT OUT DEADLINE STATED IN SECTION 11.4 ABOVE. You must opt out by the Opt Out Deadline for each Order Form. You may opt out of the class action waiver by sending an email to email@example.com and clearly stating that you wish to opt out of the class action waiver in the Agreement. Any opt-out received after the Opt Out Deadline will not be valid and you will be prohibited from pursuing your claim via a class action. You cannot be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with these opt out requirements.
11.8 Injunctive relief
You and we acknowledge and agree that a breach by either party of its confidentiality obligations under Section 7, or a breach by you of your responsibilities under Sections 4.3, 4.5, or 4.8, could cause the other party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy. You and we agree that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other party will be entitled to equitable relief, including, without limitation, a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. The binding arbitration provision of Section 11.3 shall not apply to requests for injunctive relief under this Section 11.8, which may be brought in arbitration or court proceedings. These remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
11.9 Jury trial waiver
If a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
12. Term, Termination, and Survival
This Agreement will commence on the date you enter into an Order Form and continue until terminated in accordance with Sections 12.2, 12.3, and/or 12.4.
12.2 Termination at end of Order Form
