Client shall designate as “Authorized Users” Client’s employees, consultants, contractors and subcontractors needing to access and use the Service for Client’s internal business purposes, up to the number of Authorized Users specified in Client’s Order (if such number is specified). Client and each of its Authorized Users are subject to these Terms of Service. Client is responsible for the compliance with these Terms of Service by its Authorized Users, and Client is responsible for any breach of these Terms of Service by its Authorized Users or any other Client personnel. Where the context requires, requirements and prohibitions in these Terms of Service shall apply to both Client and Authorized Users, even if expressed as a Client requirement or prohibition.
    2. Please read our Privacy Policy carefully for details relating to what information and data we collect and how we use such data. Except for information necessary for the creation of Authorized User accounts, Client will not provide any personally identifiable or personal information (as defined by applicable law) to Oracle under this Agreement and will promptly notify Oracle if Client discovers it has done so. Any personal information provided for the creation of Authorized User accounts will be governed by our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into these Terms of Service by reference.
    3. Oracle will use commercially reasonable efforts to make this Site and the Service available to Client. Client acknowledges and agrees that such availability is subject to: (a) planned maintenance downtime, and (b) any unavailability caused by urgent maintenance or circumstances beyond Oracle’s control. Oracle will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Client support.

    5. Oracle reserves the right at any time to modify, augment, enhance or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) (each, a “Service Change”), provided that in each instance Oracle is making such Service Change for its customers generally. Use of any new Service features, tools and resources are subject to these Terms of Service. Should Oracle discontinue or materially degrade any material feature of the Service, Oracle will promptly provide notice to Client and (a) Oracle will provide Client with an appropriate price adjustment, or (b) Client may terminate this Agreement by giving written notice to Oracle and paying any Service fees due (prorated through the date of termination) and Oracle will provide a prorated refund of any prepaid Service fees.

If such change or modification materially reduces Client’s rights, Client may terminate this Agreement by giving written notice to Oracle and paying any Service fees due (prorated through the date of termination), and Oracle will provide a prorated refund of any prepaid Service fees. Any change or modification will be effective upon posting on this Site. Client shall regularly review these Terms of Service to ensure compliance with the most recent terms. Client’s continued use of the Service following the posting of any change or modification of the Terms of Service will constitute Client’s acceptance of such change or modification. If Client does not agree to the amended Terms of Service, Client must stop accessing and using the Service immediately.

    3. Client and Authorized Users are responsible for maintaining the security of Client’s account and password.

Client shall indemnify the Indemnitees from and against any related damages, losses, liabilities, expenses, attorney fees and costs.
    9. Client’s Order may limit the number of company profile synchronizations (aka lead exports) per month to Client’s CRM or the number of results views in list form. Client does not have the right to carry forward, or obtain credit for, or provide to others, any unused lead exports or result views in any month. If Client requires access to more data than allowed under Client’s Order, Client may contact Oracle to order additional Services. In no event shall Client or an Authorized User provide any leads or information (or any information in or extracted from or derived from any leads) to any third party (other than Client’s CRM system), even if Client or Authorized User has exported and stored such leads or information in or to another platform.
    1. Client understands that the Service gathers, organizes and derives insights on companies based on available information and data provided by third parties or contributed by clients (together, “Third Party Content”). Oracle does not pre-screen Third Party Content that may be presented or available through the Service. Oracle has the right in its sole discretion to limit, restrict or remove any Third Party Content from the Service. Oracle makes no claim or representation regarding, and accepts no responsibility for, the quality, content, nature or reliability of any Third Party Content. Oracle does not represent or warrant the accuracy of any Third Party Content, undertakes no responsibility to update or review any Third Party Content, and makes no guarantee as to the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any Third Party Content. Providing Third Party Content or attribution to the source of any Third Party Content does not imply affiliation, endorsement or adoption by Oracle of the Third Party Content or Third Party Content provider. In the event that a Third Party Content provider requires Oracle to remove or discontinue use of any Third Party Content, Oracle may in turn direct Client to cease using such Third Party Content and expunge it from Client’s platforms. Client agrees to comply promptly with any such direction. Third parties from whom DataFox licenses (or acquires via subscription) Third Party Content (including but not limited to Zoom Information Inc.) shall be third party beneficiaries to, and have the right to enforce the provisions of, these Terms of Service as it relates to their Third Party Content.
    2. Third party applications or services (“Third Party Apps”) may be available through the Service.

Client’s agreement to use such Third Party Apps will be solely between Client and such Third Party App provider.
    3. If Client installs or enables Third Party Apps for use with the Service, or accesses the Service from the Third Party Apps, Client acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Oracle may allow such Third Party Apps providers to access Client’s data for provisioning or interoperation of the Third Party Apps with the Service; (ii) Client is solely responsible for ensuring that it has obtained all necessary rights, licenses and authorizations from the Third Party App provider; and (iii) Oracle will not be responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Client’s data by a Third Party App provider. If Client obtains any custom data via Third Party Apps through the Service, Client is responsible for obtaining all necessary rights, licenses and authorizations to use such custom data, and to authorize Oracle to host, transmit and display such custom data. If Client does not want to permit the exchange of Client’s data or account information with Third Party Apps, Client should not enable or should disable such Third Party Apps for use with the Service.
    4. The Service may provide links to third-party websites (“Third Party Sites”) where Client may obtain Third Party Content. Oracle makes no claim or representation regarding, and accepts no responsibility for, the quality, content, nature or reliability of any Third Party Sites, or Third Party Sites linking to the Service. Such Third Party Sites are not under the control of Oracle and Oracle is not responsible for any Third Party Site, any content, links or services on such Third Party Site, or any review, changes or updates to a Third Party Site. Oracle provides links to Third Party Sites to Client only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply affiliation, endorsement or adoption by Oracle of any Third Party Site. When Client leaves this Site, Client understands and agrees that the terms and policies of the provider of the Third Party Site, not those of Oracle, will govern Client’s use of the Third Party Site.
    5. Oracle may run advertisements and promotions from third parties on the Service or may otherwise provide information about or links to third-party products or services. Client’s 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 Client and such third party. Oracle is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred by Client as the result of any Client’s dealings with or reliance on any such third party advertising, promotions or information.
