- PRESET SERVICES.
(a) Right to Use. Subject to Customer’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Preset hereby grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable (except pursuant to Section 12(a)) right to Use the Preset Services during the applicable Term. Preset reserves and, as between the Parties will solely own, the Preset IP and all rights, title and interest in and to the Preset IP. No rights are granted to Customer hereunder (whether by implication, estoppel, exhaustion or otherwise) other than as expressly set forth herein.
(b) Use Restrictions. Customer will not and will not permit any person or entity (including, without limitation, Authorized Users) to, directly or indirectly: (i) copy, modify or create any derivative work of any portion of the Preset Services or the Documentation; (ii) reverse engineer, decompile, decode, or disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive or gain improper access to any software component of the Preset Services, in whole or in part; (iii) frame, mirror, sell, resell, market, sublicense, publish, distribute, reproduce, assign, transfer, rent, lease or loan any portion of the Preset Services to any other person or entity, or otherwise allow any person or entity to use the Preset Services for any purpose other than for the benefit of Customer in accordance with this Agreement; (iv) use the Preset Services or Documentation in any manner or for any purpose that infringes, misappropriates, or otherwise violates any intellectual property rights or other right of any person or entity, or that violates any applicable law; (v) access or search the Preset Services (or download any data or content contained therein or transmitted thereby) through the use of any engine, software, tool, agent, device or mechanism (including spiders, robots, crawlers or any other similar data mining tools) other than software or Preset Services features provided by Preset for use expressly for such purposes; or (vi) use the Preset Services, Documentation or any other Preset Confidential Information for benchmarking or competitive analysis with respect to competitive or related products or services, or to develop, commercialize, license or sell any product, service or technology that could, directly or indirectly, compete with the Preset Services.
(c) Authorized Users. If Customer is an individual, then Customer will not allow any other person or entity to use the Preset Services. If Customer is an entity, Customer will not allow any person or entity other than its employees or contractors that it authorizes to use the Preset Services on its behalf (“Authorized Users”) and Customer may permit Authorized Users to Use the Preset Services, provided that Customer is responsible for all acts or omissions by its Authorized Users in connection with their use of the Preset Services and their compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including, without limitation, with Customer’s obligations and the restrictions set forth in Section 2(b).
- REGISTRATION AND FEES.
(a) Registration and Subscription. Registration includes multiple options for tiers of the Preset Services (each, a “Subscription Tier”), which include different features, functionality and fees. Customer may change its Subscription Tier at any time through the Preset Services, in which case the applicable Fees (defined below) and billing frequency for such Subscription Tier will take effect upon the time of such change. If a Customer changes from a free Subscription Tier to a paid Subscription Tier that includes a temporary free trial, the Fees will apply to the applicable paid Subscription Tier upon the end of such free trial, unless Customer cancels its subscription prior to the end of such free trial. Section 3(e) below sets forth additional terms that apply to free trials.
(b) Fees. Customer will pay Preset the fees based on the Subscription Tier, the subscription term and number of Authorized Users chosen by Customer during Registration or within the Preset Services (“Fees”) in advance based on the billing frequency (e.g., monthly or annually) applicable to Customer’s subscription, and without offset or deduction. Preset will charge Customer’s selected payment method (e.g., credit card or debit card) for any Fees on the applicable payment date, including any applicable taxes. Preset may calculate taxes payable by you (including sales, use or value-added taxes, if applicable) based on the billing information you provide to Preset during Registration. Customer is responsible for all currency exchange settlements or related expenses applicable to Customer’s payment of the Fees, if applicable. If Preset cannot charge Customer’s selected payment method for any reason (such as expiration or insufficient funds), Customer remains responsible for any uncollected amounts, and Preset will attempt to charge the payment method again as Customer may update its payment method information. Without limiting Preset’s other rights and remedies, Preset may suspend Customer’s Use of the Preset Services if any Fees are overdue. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer is responsible for all fees and expenses to enable Customer’s access to the Preset Services, including internet and data charges.
(c) Changes to Fees. Preset may change the Fees for the Preset Services at any time by providing notice to Customer through the Preset Services and/or by email. Any change to the Fees will automatically become effective after the duration of Customer’s then-current subscription term, unless Customer cancels its subscription prior to renewal pursuant to Section 7 below. For example, if the Customer has registered for a monthly subscription, the updated Fees will become applicable after the completion of the then-current subscription month and if Customer has registered for an annual subscription, the updated Fees will become applicable after the completion of the then-current subscription year.
(d) Additional Users. Customer may choose the number of Authorized Users applicable to its subscription during Registration or within the Preset Services. For each additional Authorized User that Customer invites to Use the Preset Services under Customer’s subscription, the Fees will be automatically increased based on the per-user fees agreed upon at Registration or set forth within the Preset Services. The increased Fees for additional Authorized Users will be effective beginning at the time that Authorized User invited by Customer accepts the invitation to Use the Preset Services.
(e) Free Trial or Subscription. Preset may make the Preset Services available to you free of charge, for example as a temporary free trial or pursuant to a free Subscription Tier. Additional terms and conditions may appear during Registration that are applicable to free trials or a free Subscription Tier. These additional terms and conditions may include automatic renewal terms, where Customer agrees that its free trial will automatically renew into a paid Subscription Tier absent non-renewal by Customer. Any additional terms and conditions agreed upon in the Registration are incorporated into this Agreement by reference and are legally binding. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS AGREEMENT, ANY PRESET SERVICES PROVIDED PURSUANT TO A FREE TRIAL OR FREE SUBSCRIPTION TIER ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.
- CUSTOMER MATERIALS. As between Customer and Preset, Customer owns and retains all right, title and interest in and to all Customer Materials. Preset may use, display and modify the Customer Materials solely to provide and improve the Preset Services during the Term (as defined below), including to store the Customer Materials in temporary caches. In addition, Preset may develop or derive data or insights in deidentified form from (a) any Customer Materials; or (b) Customer’s and/or its Authorized Users’ use of the Preset Services, including, without limitation, any usage data or trends with respect to the Preset Services (“Service Information”).
- PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Preset and Customer agree to the terms set forth on Exhibit A regarding the processing of Personal Information (defined below), if applicable.
- REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.
(a) Each Party represents and warrants to the other Party that: (i) it has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement; and (ii) the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by it have been duly authorized by all necessary actions and do not violate its organizational documents, if applicable.
(b) Customer represents and warrants that (i) Preset’s use of the Customer Materials in accordance with this Agreement will not violate any applicable laws or regulations or infringe or violate any intellectual property or other rights of any third party or cause a breach of any agreement or obligations between Customer and any third party and (ii) Customer will not input into the Preset Services or otherwise provide to Preset any data that would subject to Preset to additional legal compliance obligations (including under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) or other data that would constitute sensitive Personal Information (as defined in Exhibit A).
- TERM; TERMINATION. The term of this Agreement begins on the Effective Date and remains in full force and effect for the period set forth in the Registration, and, unless earlier terminated as permitted herein, will automatically renew for additional periods based on the duration agreed upon in the Registration (collectively, the “Term”). Customer may terminate this Agreement at any time by requesting cancellation via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or, if available, by cancelling its subscription to the Preset Services through the Preset website or other application. No refund of any prepaid amounts will be due to Customer in the event of such termination. In addition, Preset may suspend or terminate Customer’s subscription to the Preset Services at any time.
- EFFECT OF TERMINATION.
(a) Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement: (i) each Party will make no further use of any Confidential Information belonging to the other Party, and will promptly return to the other Party (or destroy) all Confidential Information of the other Party in its possession or control, except for any archived electronic communications which may be stored confidentially, (ii) Customer’s and its Authorized Users’ right to Use the Preset Services pursuant to the Registration will immediately terminate; and (iii) all Fees owed by Customer to Preset will be immediately due.
(b) The rights and obligations of Preset and Customer contained in Sections 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.
(a) Confidentiality. As used herein, “Confidential Information” means any information that one Party (the “Disclosing Party”) provides to the other Party (the “Receiving Party”) in connection with this Agreement, whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be considered to be confidential given the nature of the information and/or the circumstances of disclosure. For clarity, the Preset Services and the Documentation will be deemed Confidential Information of Preset. The Receiving Party will not use or disclose any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party except as necessary to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement; provided that Preset may use and modify Confidential Information of Customer in deidentified form for purposes of developing and deriving Service Information. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party only: (i) to those of its employees, contractors, agents and advisors who have a bona fide need to know such Confidential Information to perform under this Agreement and who are bound by written agreements with use and nondisclosure restrictions at least as protective of the Confidential Information as those set forth in this Agreement, or (ii) as such disclosure may be required by the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body, subject to the Receiving Party providing to the Disclosing Party reasonable written notice to allow the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise contest the disclosure.
(b) Exclusions. Confidential Information will not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public through no fault or breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party; (ii) is rightfully known by the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure without an obligation of confidentiality; (iii) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without access to or use of any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party that can be evidenced in writing; or (iv) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third-party without restriction on use or disclosure.
- DISCLAIMER; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
(a) Disclaimer. THE PRESET SERVICES AND OTHER PRESET IP ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, AND PRESET MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS TO CUSTOMER, ITS AUTHORIZED USERS OR TO ANY OTHER PARTY REGARDING THE PRESET IP, THE PRESET SERVICES OR ANY OTHER SERVICES OR MATERIALS PROVIDED HEREUNDER.
(b) Limitation of Liability. PRESET WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF INCOME, DATA, PROFITS, REVENUE OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR THE COST OF COVER OR SUBSTITUTE SERVICES, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT. IN NO EVENT WILL PRESET’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER OR ITS AUTHORIZED USERS IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (A) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100) AND (B) THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY CUSTOMER TO PRESET IN THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM ANY CLAIM BASED ON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT SUCH PARTY WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE.
(a) Indemnification by Preset. Subject to Section 11(b), Preset will defend Customer against any claim, suit or proceeding brought by a third-party (“Claims”) alleging that Customer’s Use of the Preset Services infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights, and will indemnify and hold harmless Customer against any damages and costs awarded against Customer in a final non-appealable judgment or agreed in settlement by Preset (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from such Claim.

Preset’s obligations under Section 11(a) will not apply if the underlying Claim arises from or as a result of: (i) Customer’s breach of this Agreement, negligence, willful misconduct or fraud; (ii) any Customer Materials; (iii) Customer’s failure to use any enhancements, modifications, or updates to the Preset Services that have been provided by Preset; (iv) modifications to the Preset Services by anyone other than Preset; or (v) combinations of the Preset Services with software, data or materials not provided by Preset.
(c) Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Preset from and against any damages and liabilities (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) awarded against Preset, and amounts agreed to in settlement with respect to each of the foregoing, to the extent arising from a Claim against Preset that: (i) the Customer Materials or its use by Preset in accordance with this Agreement infringes, misappropriates or violates a third-party’s intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation; (ii) is based on Customer’s or an Authorized User’s use of the Preset Services or Documentation to the extent such use was not in accordance with this Agreement; (iii) is based on the manufacture, sale, distribution or marketing of any Customer’s products or services; or (iv) is based on a breach of Section 2(b) by Customer.

__EXHIBIT A__ __PERSONAL INFORMATION__
To the extent Preset processes any Customer Materials relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“Personal Information”) that is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) and its respective national implementing legislations (“GDPR”); the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection; the United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulation; and/or the United Kingdom Data Protection Act 2018 (collectively, “Data Protection Laws”), Preset will:
(a) only process Personal Information as contemplated by this Agreement;
(b) ensure that Preset’s personnel authorized to process Personal Information have committed themselves to confidentiality;
(c) implement commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to protect Personal Information. If Preset becomes aware of any unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of Personal Information, it will notify Customer without undue delay. Where possible, such notice will include all available details required under applicable data protection laws for Customer to comply with its own notification obligations to regulatory authorities and affected individuals;
(d) only engage subprocessors to process Personal Information where Preset has entered into a written agreement with such subprocessors imposing data protection obligations that are consistent with this Section 5. Where the subprocessor fails to fulfil such obligations, Preset shall remain fully liable to Customer for the performance of that subprocessor’s obligations in accordance with applicable data protection laws. A list of Preset’s subprocessors can be found at https://preset.io/Preset%20Sub-Processors%202021-08-13.pdf. Where required by Data Protection Laws, Preset will update such list of subprocessors and allow Customer five (5) days to object.

(e) provide reasonable assistance and comply with reasonable instructions from Customer related to any requests from individuals exercising their rights in Personal Information under applicable data protection laws;
(f) assist Customer in ensuring compliance with Customer’s obligations pursuant to Articles 35 and 36 of GDPR (or other equivalent requirements under other applicable Data Protection Laws);
(g) delete or return all Personal Information following the expiration or termination of this Agreement upon request (excluding any back-up or archival copies which shall be deleted in accordance with Preset’s data retention schedule), except where Preset is required to retain copies under applicable laws, in which case Preset will isolate and protect that Personal Information from any further processing except to the extent required by applicable laws;
(h) make available to Customer all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations set forth in this Exhibit A and allow for and contribute to audits, conducted by Customer or another auditor mandated by Customer by providing Customer with an overview of Preset’s security practices that Preset generally makes available to its customer base;
(i) ensure that any Personal Information originating in the European Economic Area, Switzerland, and/or the United Kingdom that is transferred by Customer to Preset in a country that has not been found to provide an adequate level of protection under applicable data protection laws is processed in accordance with the European Commission Decision C(2010)593 Standard Contractual Clauses for Controllers to Processors (“Model Clauses”), the terms of which are herein incorporated by reference. Customer and Preset agree that: (i) the audits described in Clause 5(f) and Clause 12(2) of the Model Clauses shall be carried out in accordance with paragraph (h) of this Exhibit A; (ii) pursuant to Clause 5(h) of the Model Clauses, Preset may engage new subprocessors in accordance with paragraph (d) of this Exhibit A; (iii) the subprocessor agreements referenced in Clause 5(j) and certification of deletion referenced in Clause 12(1) of the Model Clauses shall be provided by Preset only upon written request; and (iv) the optional clauses are expressly not included. Each party’s acceptance of this Agreement shall be considered a signature to the Model Clauses to the extent the Model Clauses apply hereunder. If required by the laws or regulatory procedures of any jurisdiction, the parties shall execute or re-execute the Model Clauses as separate documents.
