I. Introduction and Eligibility

Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully before using the Rignite Service.

These Terms include Rignite’s Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into these Terms.  We have included several annotations in boxes to help explain the legal jargon and emphasize key sections.  These annotations are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.

This agreement is a legally binding contract.  It may change from time to time, and you agree you will review it and any updates as requested.

Binding Agreement.  These Terms constitute a binding agreement between you and Rignite, Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries (“Rignite,” “we,” “us”).  “You” and “users” shall mean all visitors, and the organizations which they represent, to the Rignite Service.  You accept these Terms when you register for and each time you access the Rignite Service.  If you do not accept these Terms, you must not use the Rignite Service.

If you are using the Rignite Service on behalf of a business, you must be authorized by the business to use it, because you are binding the business to these Terms.

III. The Rignite Service

The “Rignite Service” means the website located at www.rignite.com, app.rignite.com and any micro-websites and associated Internet services under Rignite’s control, whether partial or otherwise, in connection with providing the services provided by Rignite.  The Rignite Service provides an online platform that allows you to manage your social media marketing communications.

You may use the Rignite Service to connect with other websites, and you agree to comply with their terms and conditions.

Third-Party Terms and Conditions.  The Rignite Service allows you to post and retrieve content from third-party websites, including Facebook and Twitter.  You post and retrieve such content subject to such third parties’ terms and conditions.  Rignite’s Service is dependent on, among other things, continued access to and the ability to post content to third party websites, which we cannot guarantee.

You are not allowed to send spam and must comply with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.

Spam Prohibited.  You may not use the Rignite Service for the sending of unsolicited email (sometimes called “spam”) or for the hosting or communicating of illegal or prohibited content through social networks.  You shall comply with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (and any rules adopted under such act), including compliance with the following requirements:

1.      You are the sole or designated “sender” of any email message sent by you using the Rignite Service.

2.      The “from,” and “reply-to” line of any email message sent by you using the Rignite Service will accurately and in a non-deceptive manner identify your organization and products and services.

6.      Every email message sent in connection with the Rignite Service must contain an “unsubscribe” link that allows subscribers to remove themselves from your mailing list and a link to your then current Privacy Policy.  Each such link must remain operational for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which you send the message, and must be in form and substance satisfactory to Rignite.  You acknowledge and agree that you will not remove, disable, or attempt to remove or disable either link.  You shall monitor and process unsubscribe requests received by you directly within ten (10) days of submission, and update the email addresses to which messages are sent through your account.  Under the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, you acknowledge that you are responsible for maintaining and honoring the list of unsubscribe requests following termination of your account and these Terms.

We measure the number of spam complaints your emails generate, and if the number of complaints is higher than the industry norm, we may terminate your use of the Rignite Service.

SPAM complaints.  Emails that you send using the Rignite Service may generate spam complaints from recipients.  You are responsible for ensuring that your emails do not generate a number of spam complaints in excess of industry norms.  We, in our sole discretion, shall determine whether your level of spam complaints is within industry norms, and our determination shall be final, binding, and conclusive for all purposes under these Terms. Rignite will terminate your use of the Rignite Service if we determine that your level of spam complaints is higher than industry norms (as determined by us).

You may only send email to recipients who have agreed to receive email from you.

Third-Party Mailing Lists Prohibited.  You agree you will not access or otherwise use third-party mailing lists or otherwise prepare or distribute unsolicited email in connection with your use of the Rignite Service.

Permission-Based Lists.  You agree to import, access, or otherwise use only lists for which all listed parties have consented to receive correspondence from you (“Permission-Based Lists”) when you use the Rignite Service.  Without limiting the foregoing, you agree that you shall not use the Rignite Service to send any commercial electronic mail message (as that term is defined in the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003) to any person who has opted out or otherwise objected to receiving such messages from you or another sender on whose behalf you may be acting.  You may not mail to distribution lists, newsgroups, publicly available press or media addresses, or spam or unsolicited email addresses.

You promise to use the templates we provide only for the purposes of sending email messages from the Rignite Service.

Template Use.  You may not copy any Rignite template or any other features or functionality from the Rignite Service or use them for any purpose other than sending email messages from the Rignite Service.

We cannot promise the timeliness or delivery of the email you send using the Rignite Service or the display of messages you post to social networks using the Rignite Service.

Email Delivery Success Rate.  You acknowledge and agree that not all email messages sent through use of the Rignite Service will be received by their intended recipients.

Content Delivery Time.  We may send email and post content to social networks at your direction through the Internet, and the level of reliability may vary.  Rignite is not responsible for the timeliness or final delivery of the message or content, as this is out of our control and is the responsibility of other networks and Internet service providers.

We will charge you more if you pass the limits of your subscription.

Compliance with Subscription Limits.  We may provide various subscription packages with different limitations.  For example, we may have tiered plans with differing maximum number of email campaigns or distribution recipients.  If you use the Rignite Service beyond the limits for the subscription for which you have paid, we will charge you an additional amount equal to the difference between the fee for the subscription tier matching your usage and the fee you paid to us for that subscription period.

We may need to fix bugs, which could affect the availability of the Rignite Service.

Rignite’s Responsibilities. Rignite shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Rignite Service available at all times, except for planned downtime for system maintenance, unanticipated system errors, and any unavailability caused by force majeure circumstances (e.g., fires, floods, acts of God, acts of government, civil unrest, Internet service provider failures or delays, denial of service attacks, etc.), and to provide the Services only in accordance with applicable laws and government regulations.  The Rignite Service may contain bugs.  Rignite will attempt to fix system errors in a timely fashion and will need to update the Rignite Service, which could impact Rignite Service availability.  Rignite will provide a mechanism to allow you to report service issues.

Definition of Confidential Information.  As used herein, “Confidential Information” means all confidential 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.  Your Confidential Information shall include the data you post to the Rignite Service.  Rignite’s Confidential Information shall include the non-public elements of the Rignite Service, Feedback and Proprietary Information, Rignite Training materials, and the Documentation.  Confidential Information of each party shall include business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party.  However, Confidential Information (other than the data you post to the Rignite Service) shall not include any information that (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (ii) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (iii) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party.

We and you promise to protect the confidentiality of Confidential Information as we would our own confidential information and not use less than reasonable care.

Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party shall use the same degree of care with Confidential Information that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but in no event less than reasonable care) and shall (i) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of these Terms, and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its affiliates’ employees, contractors, and agents who need such access for purposes consistent with these Terms and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those herein.

Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such 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.  If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information.

XI. Copyright Policy 

Let us know if you think a user has violated your copyright using the Rignite Service, or if you think someone incorrectly reported that you violated his or her copyright.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials posted on the Rignite Service infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Rignite a “Notification of Claimed Infringement” requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked.  The notice must include the following information:

1.      A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;

2.      Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Rignite Service are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);

4.      Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);

5.      A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

6.      A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Rignite a counter-notice.

Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details.  Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Rignite Service should be sent to Rignite, Inc. 444 Castro Street, Mountain View, CA 94041 (support@rignite.com).  Consult your legal advisor and see 17 U.S.C. § 512 before filing a notice or counter-notice as there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE RELEASED PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF RIGNITE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM: (i) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE RIGNITE SERVICE; (ii) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION OR SERVICES OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH, FROM, OR AS A RESULT OF THE RIGNITE SERVICE; (iii) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (iv) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY USER OR THIRD PARTY ON THE RIGNITE SERVICE; (v) YOUR RELIANCE ON CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE BY US; OR (vi) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE RIGNITE SERVICE.  SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS IN THIS PARAGRAPH MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT POSSIBLE BY LAW, OUR MAXIMUM LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE RIGNITE SERVICE OR YOUR USE OF RIGNITE CONTENT, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE), WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO RIGNITE DURING THE SIX (6) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM.

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Released Parties from and against any claims, actions, or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, alleging or resulting from (i) your use of or reliance on any third-party content, (ii) your use of or reliance on any Rignite Content, or (iii) your breach of these Terms.  We shall provide notice to you promptly of any such claim, suit, or proceeding.

XVI. General Terms

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Rignite concerning your use of the Rignite Service.  Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. The section titles and annotations in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.

XVII. Arbitration, Class Waiver, and Waiver of Jury Trial 

We are located in California, so all disputes must be resolved there.  We will use arbitration to resolve any problems, and you cannot join a class action lawsuit or obtain a jury trial for any disputes you have with us related to your use of the Rignite Service.

These Terms and the relationship between you and Rignite shall be governed by the laws of the state of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.  You and Rignite agree to submit to the personal and exclusive arbitration of any disputes relating to your use of the Rignite Service under the rules of the American Arbitration Association.  Any such arbitration, to the extent necessary, shall be conducted in Santa Clara county in the state of California.  You covenant not to sue Rignite in any other forum.

You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with the Released Parties arising out of or relating to your use of the Rignite Service or these Terms:
