  • Terms relating to your data and how we may use it are set out in clauses 13 and 14.
  • Clauses 17 and 18 contain important limitations on our liability, disclaimers, exclusions, releases and indemnities. In practical terms, these clauses set out what we do not accept liability for, and what you will need to compensate us for. You should pay special attention to those.

    4. You acknowledge that we will suffer real and substantial damage due to a breach of this clause 12 and may seek injunctive relief for any actual or perceived breach, and damages alone are not an adequate remedy.
  13. User Data
    1. Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, as between you and us, you own all Intellectual Property Rights in all User Data.
    2. Your User Data includes both Processed Data and Protected Data.

      2. in relation to Processed Data, you have obtained all necessary rights, releases and permissions to provide all of the Processed Data to us and to grant the rights granted to us in this Agreement;
      3. the User Data (and any processing of it by us or by the Service) as authorised by you, under this Agreement does not violate any laws (including those relating to export control and electronic communications) or rights of any third party, including any Intellectual Property Rights, rights of privacy, or rights of publicity; and
      4. any use, collection and disclosure authorised in this Agreement are not inconsistent with the terms of any applicable privacy policies.
    5. We may monitor, analyse and compile statistical, performance, or event information based on and/or related to your use of the Service in an aggregated and anonymised, or de-identified and linkable format (Analytics). You may opt-out of allowing us to compile Analytics, in which case, the remainder of this clause will no longer apply. Analytics are compiled purely from Processed Data and not any Protected Data. We and our licensors own all Intellectual Property Rights in and to the Analytics and all related software, technology, documentation and content provided in connection with the Analytics. You agree that we may make such aggregated and anonymised Analytics publicly available, provided that it:

However, we do not accept responsibility or liability for any unauthorised use, destruction, loss, damage or alteration to the Processed Data, including due to hacking, malware, ransomware, viruses, malicious computer code or other forms of interference. We do not guarantee that your Processed Data will be backed up.
    2. Generally, we aim to delete any Personal Information of yours as soon as practicable after the termination of your Subscription Plan. However, we may sometimes retain Personal Information for an additional period as is permitted or required under applicable laws. Even if we delete your Personal Information it may persist on backup or archival media for an additional period of time for legal, tax or regulatory reasons or for legitimate and lawful business purposes.
