The Terms constitute the entire agreement of the parties regarding the Platform and include the Order Form (as defined below), the CCPA Third Party Addendum, and any exhibits attached to the Terms, and all of the other terms and conditions incorporated into the Terms by reference.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Terms, Disco hereby grants to Customer a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable license to internally access and use the features of the Platform as described herein and, if applicable, on the Order Form.
1.2 Order Forms. Customer may obtain access to additional Disco products and services by entering into separate order forms (each, an “Order Form”) with Disco. In the event of a conflict between the Terms and the terms of an Order Form, the Order Form will govern.
1.3 Customer Materials. Customer will timely provide or make available all data, content, and other materials (including all relevant information about Products and Customer Data (as defined below)) to Disco as reasonably necessary for, or otherwise in connection with, Disco's provision of the Services (the "Customer Materials"). “Customer Data” means any and all data about Customer’s consumers, including personal data and real-time information about consumer transactions, that Customer provides to or otherwise makes available to Disco or that a Customer consumer provides to or otherwise makes available to Disco in connection with the Services. To the extent permitted under applicable law, Customer hereby grants to Disco a (i) worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up, non-exclusive license and right to use, access, reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, perform, display, process, publish, analyze, and otherwise exploit (including combining, incorporating, or integrating with Disco or third parties’ materials, information, and data) the Customer Materials (other than the Customer Data) to provide, maintain, and improve the Services and create and fully exploit the Disco Data (as defined below) and (ii) a worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up, non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, sublicensable (through multiple tiers), and fully transferable license and right to use, access, reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, perform, display, process, publish, analyze, sell, offer for sale, and otherwise exploit (including combining, incorporating, or integrating with Disco or third parties’ materials, information, and data) the Customer Data to provide, maintain, create, improve, and otherwise fully exploit the Services, the Disco Data, and any other product or service of Disco. As between the parties, subject to the express grants within the Terms, Customer owns all right, title and interest in and to the Customer Materials.

Without limiting the generality of the licenses granted in Section 1.3, Disco may combine Customer Data with similar or other data provided by other Disco merchants or other third parties in the same grouping as Customer to (i) personalize recommendations presented to Customer's consumers during the checkout process, (ii) serve consumers ads; and (iii) provide Customer with audience lists to use for marketing on social media platforms (the "Audiences Service" and together with the Platform, the "Services"). Customer will obtain (and is responsible for obtaining) all consents and will provide (and is responsible for providing) all notices and opportunities to its consumers to opt-in or -out that may be required by Applicable Law for Disco to (a) provide the Services to Customer using Customer Data and (b) grant the rights and licenses set forth in these Terms.

1.5 Customer acknowledges that (i) Disco is relying on Customer's timely, complete, and accurate provision of Customer Materials to Disco for Disco's provision of the Services and (ii) Disco will not be responsible or liable for failures or delays to provide the Services to the extent they result from (a) Customer's delay or failure to provide the Customer Materials in a timely manner or (b) the inaccuracy or incompleteness of the Customer Materials.
1.6 Passwords; End Users. Customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of its and its End Users’ passwords, IDs, and other credentials and login information (collectively, "Passwords"), and Customer agrees that Disco has no liability with respect to the use, disclosure, or loss of any Passwords. Customer acknowledges that Passwords are personal to Customer or each End User, and Customer is responsible for ensuring that each Password is used only by the applicable End User. Customer will notify Disco immediately if Customer has reason to believe that the security of Customer’s account has been compromised or if any of the Platform have been accessed by any unauthorized individuals. Customer is responsible for all acts or omissions of its End Users.
2. Fees and Payment Terms; Credits.
2.1 Fees. Customer will pay to Disco the then-current fees as set forth in Disco’s Pricing Sheet (the “Fees”) within thirty (30) days of Disco's invoice therefor. The Fees do not include taxes. All payments made under the Terms will be made (a) in U.S. Dollars and (b) by check or by bank wire transfer in immediately available funds to an account designated by Disco or by credit/debit card via an authorized Disco payment processor.
2.2 Interest and Taxes. Interest on any late payments will accrue at the rate of 1.5% per month, or the highest rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such amount is due until the date such amount is paid in full. Customer will be responsible for, and will pay all sales and similar taxes, all license fees and similar fees levied upon the provision of the Services excluding only taxes based solely on Disco’s net income. Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in this the Terms, (a) Disco will not be obligated to issue any refunds for Fees paid, and (b) Disco, at its sole discretion, may modify the Fees beginning on the expiration date of the Initial Subscription Term and annually thereafter, provided that modifications will only be effective as of the directly subsequent Renewal Subscription Term (as defined below).
2.3 Suspension. If any Fees under the Terms are thirty (30) days or more overdue, Disco may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, (a) suspend Customer's and its End Users' access to and use of the Services until such Fees are paid in full or (b) immediately terminate the Terms without any further cure period and accelerate Customer’s unpaid Fee obligations such that all such obligations become immediately due and payable upon termination.
3.1 Definition. "Confidential Information" means all information disclosed (whether in oral, written, or other tangible or intangible form) by one party (the "Disclosing Party") to the other party (the "Receiving Party") (or all information (whether in oral, written, or other tangible or intangible form) acquired by the Receiving Party), concerning or related to the Terms or the Disclosing Party (whether before, on or after the Effective Date) that the Receiving Party knows or reasonably should know, given the facts and circumstances surrounding the disclosure of the information by the Disclosing Party (or acquisition of the information by the Receiving Party), is proprietary information of the Disclosing Party. Without limiting the foregoing, any Disco Data (as defined below), software scripts, or code provided or made available to Customer by Disco as part of the Platform constitute Confidential Information of Disco. Customer Data is not the Confidential Information of either party.
3.2 Obligations. The Receiving Party will maintain in confidence the Confidential Information and will not use such Confidential Information except as expressly permitted in the Terms. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care in protecting the Confidential Information as the Receiving Party uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information from unauthorized use or disclosure, but in no event less than reasonable care. Confidential Information will be used by the Receiving Party solely for the purpose of carrying out the Receiving Party’s obligations and exercising the Receiving Party’s rights under the Terms. In addition, the Receiving Party will only disclose Confidential Information to its directors, officers, employees and contractors who have a need to know such Confidential Information in order to perform their duties under the Terms, and if such directors, officers, employees and contractors have executed a non-disclosure agreement with the Receiving Party with terms no less restrictive than the non-disclosure obligations contained in this Section 3.2. Each party agrees that it will not disclose the terms and conditions of the Terms to any third party, provided that each party may disclose the terms and conditions of the Terms (i) to such party’s legal counsel, accountants, banks, financing sources and their advisors, (ii) in connection with the enforcement of the Terms or rights under the Terms, or (iii) in connection with an actual or proposed merger, acquisition, or other transaction.
3.3 Feedback. Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in the Terms, any suggestions, comments or other feedback provided by Customer to Disco with respect to Disco or the Services (collectively, "Feedback") is Disco’s Confidential Information alone. Further, Disco will be free to use, disclose, reproduce, license and otherwise distribute and exploit the Feedback provided to it as it sees fit, entirely without obligation or restriction of any kind on account of Intellectual Property Rights or otherwise.
3.4 Exceptions. Confidential Information will not include information that the Receiving Party can demonstrate (i) is in or enters the public domain without breach of the Terms and through no fault of the Receiving Party, (ii) was in its possession prior to first receiving it from the Disclosing Party without an obligation of confidentiality, (iii) was developed by the Receiving Party independently of, and without use of or reference to, the Confidential Information, or (iv) was received by the Receiving Party from a third party without restriction on disclosure and without breach of a nondisclosure obligation. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information that is required to be disclosed by law or by a subpoena or order issued by a court of competent jurisdiction (each, a "Court Order"), but solely on the conditions that the Receiving Party (a) gives the Disclosing Party written notice of the Court Order within 24 hours after receiving it, and (b) cooperates fully with the Disclosing Party before disclosure to provide the Disclosing Party with the opportunity to interpose any objections it may have to the disclosure of the information required by the Court Order and seek a protective order or other appropriate relief. In the event of any dispute between the parties as to whether specific information is within one or more of the exceptions set forth in this Section 3.4, the Receiving Party will bear the burden of proof, by clear and convincing evidence, that such information is within the claimed exception(s).
3.5 Remedies. The Receiving Party acknowledges that any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information will result in irreparable injury to the Disclosing Party, which injury could not be adequately compensated by the payment of money damages. In addition to any other legal and equitable remedies that may be available, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek and obtain injunctive relief against any breach or threatened breach by the Receiving Party of the confidentiality obligations hereunder, from any court of competent jurisdiction, without being required to show any actual damage or irreparable harm, prove the inadequacy of its legal remedies, or post any bond or other security.

11.1 Independent Contractors. Neither party will, for any purpose, be deemed to be an agent, franchisor, franchise, employee, representative, owner or partner of the other party, and the relationship between the parties will only be that of independent contractors. Neither party will have any right or authority to assume or create any obligations or to make any representations or warranties on behalf of any other party, whether express or implied, or to bind the other party in any respect whatsoever.
11.2 Governing Law and Venue. The Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. Each party submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court sitting in San Francisco, California in any litigation arising out of or relating to the Terms.
11.3 Publicity. Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in the Terms, Customer consents to Disco’s use of Customer's name and logo on the Disco website and on Disco’s promotional and marketing related materials, identifying Customer as a customer of Disco and describing Customer's use of the Services.

11.4 Third-Party Platforms. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Disco uses third-party hosting infrastructures and other services in connection with the Platform ("Third-Party Platforms") and, notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in the Terms, Disco disclaims any liability with respect to any Third-Party Platforms. Customer agrees to abide by the terms and conditions provided by Disco with respect to any Third-Party Platforms.
11.5 Modifications. Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in the Terms, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Disco may modify features of the Services from time to time at Disco’s sole discretion, provided that such modifications will not materially degrade the Services.
11.6 Assignment. Neither the Terms nor any right or duty under the Terms may be transferred, assigned or delegated by a party, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the other party, and any attempted transfer, assignment or delegation without such consent will be void and without effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Disco may freely assign the Terms or any right or duty under the Terms to an affiliate or to any successor to substantially all of its business or assets to which the Terms relate, whether by merger, sale of assets, sale of stock, reorganization, or other transaction. The Terms will be binding upon and enforceable against any successor or permitted assignee.
11.7 Amendments and Waivers. Disco may change these Terms by providing notice of the change to Customer. Disco may provide such notice by posting the revised terms on its website, by sending an email to the email address on file for Customer or by providing notice through the Platform. If Customer does not agree with the change, Customer must immediately discontinue using the Services. Customer will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by the change if Customer continues using the Services following Disco’s provision of notice regarding such change. All Order Forms incorporating a link to these Terms are governed by the current version of the Terms then in effect and found at the link, which amends and supersedes all prior versions of the Terms with respect to all existing Order Forms. No failure or delay (in whole or in part) on the part of a party to exercise any right or remedy hereunder will operate as a waiver thereof or effect any other right or remedy. All rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any other rights or remedies provided hereunder or by law. The waiver of one breach or default or any delay in exercising any rights will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default.
11.8 Notices. Any notice or communication required or permitted to be given hereunder will be in writing, signed or authorized by the party giving notice, and may be delivered by hand, deposited with an overnight courier, sent by confirmed email, or mailed by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, in each case to the address of the receiving party as identified on the Terms or at such other address as may hereafter be furnished in writing by either party to the other party. Such notice will be deemed to have been given as of the date it is delivered. Notice is effective on the earlier of ten (10) days from being deposited for delivery or the date on the confirmed facsimile, confirmed email or courier receipt.
11.9 Severability. If any provision of the Terms are invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, (i) such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision of the Terms or invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction, and (ii) such provision, in such jurisdiction, will be replaced by a valid, legal and enforceable provision that best reflects the parties’ intent for such first provision.
11.10 Audit. Disco may, by itself or through an independent third party, audit Customer’s use of the Platform to verify (i) Customer's use of the Platform for purposes of calculating Fees and (ii) that Customer is in compliance with the terms and conditions of the Terms. Customer agrees to provide reasonable access to Customer’s systems and records for purposes of conducting these audits.
11.11 Counterparts. The Terms may be executed (i) in two or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original and all of which will together constitute the same instrument; and (ii) by the parties by exchange of signature pages by mail or email (if email, signatures in Adobe PDF or similar format).
11.12 Maintenance. Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in the Terms, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Disco may conduct maintenance on the Platform from time to time without prior notice to Customer.
11.13 Interpretation. The section headings of the Terms are for convenience only and have no interpretive value. The words “include,” “includes,” and “including” will be deemed to be followed by “without limitation.” Each party acknowledges that it has had an opportunity to review the Terms with legal counsel of its choice, and there will be no presumption that ambiguities will be construed or interpreted against the drafter. The word “or” will not be exclusive. Where a word is defined in the Terms, references to the singular include references to the plural and vice versa.
11.14 Force Majeure. Except for payments due under the Terms, neither party will be responsible for any failure to perform or delay attributable in whole or in part to any cause beyond its reasonable control including, but not limited to, acts of God (fire, storm, floods, earthquakes, etc.), acts of terrorism, civil disturbances, disruption of telecommunications, disruption of power or other essential services, interruption or termination of any services provided by any service providers used by Disco, labor disturbances, vandalism, cable cut, computer viruses or other similar occurrences, or any malicious or unlawful acts of any third party.
