License Agreement (LA). Terms and Conditions.
Article 1: Background
1. (Parties to the LA) This License Agreement (“LA”) is an agreement between Hypefactors A/S (“Hypefactors”) and the Customer. Wherever used in this LA “Customer” means the person or legal entity which has entered into this LA concerning the Hypefactors platform (the “Services”).
2. (Scope of the LA) The LA governs the Customer’s access to and use of Hypefactors’ online software Services for PR and social media management and any information, text, graphics, rich media or other materials uploaded, downloaded, or appearing on www.hypefactors.com. Hypefactors shall be permitted to update and amend the Services continually and without notice. Any changes to the Services, including releases of new features, tools or resources, shall be subject to this LA.
3. (Demonstration) Prior to the Customer signing this LA, the Services have been demonstrated to the Customer by Hypefactors and/or the Customer may have enjoyed a trial period with access to the Services. If this is not the case, the Customer declares that it has, on its own risk, decided to enter into this LA without such demonstration.
4. (Hardware and Software Requirements) The Customer is responsible for acquiring and maintaining any and all hardware, software and internet access necessary to obtain access to and use of the Services.
5. (Acceptance of the LA) By accessing and using the Services, the Customer agrees to be bound by this LA. If the Customer does not agree to be bound by this LA, the Customer is not allowed to access or use the Services. Hypefactors may amend the terms and conditions of this LA with a three months’ notice. Amendments will become effective from the beginning of the next License Period.
Article 2: License
1. (License Grant) The Customer is granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use the Services as described in this LA (the “License”).
2. (License Period) The License is granted for consecutive periods of agreed length (collectively the “License Periods”, each a “License Period”), and the License is automatically renewed for an additional License Period on payment of the License Fee (see definition below) pertaining to that License Period, unless the License has been duly terminated. Failure to pay the License Fee does not constitute proper termination by the Customer, and Hypefactors, or the Representative, as applicable, may claim payment of the License Fee in such an event. The first License Period begins, and the Customer will only be granted access to the Services, when Hypefactors (regardless of whether payment is made directly to the Representative) has effectively received payment of the License Fee covering the first License Period and a copy of the LA signed by the Customer and received by Hypefactors.
3. (Use of the Services) The Services may only be used by the Customer, and only by the number of users registered by payment of the License Fee. The Customer may only add users from inside the company unless explicitly agreed in writing with Hypefactors. This also means that media mentions cannot be shared outside of the group of users as publishers copyrights must be respected. Hypefactors will monitor the Customer’s use of the Services and invoice – and if necessary correct the charged – License Fee in accordance herewith.
4. (Restrictions) The Customer is not permitted to, without Hypefactors’s prior written consent: (a) copy, distribute (including by framing any of the Services on any website), modify, enhance, translate, reproduce, sell, resell, sublicense, rent, lease, or similarly attempt to exploit the Services; (b) decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code (except to the extent that this restriction is expressly prohibited by law); or (c) make derivative works of the Services. Sharing data with non-users is strictly prohibited.
5. (Title and ownership) Hypefactors and its licensors/partners retain title to and ownership of all rights (including copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and all other intellectual property rights) in and of the Services. The Customer acquires no rights whatsoever to all or any part of the Services except for the limited use rights granted by the terms of this LA. Hypefactors and its licensors/partners reserve all rights not expressly granted to the Customer.
6. (Customer Content) Content that the Customer provides to Hypefactors in connection with the Services (the “Customer Content”) remains the Customer’s property.
Article 3: License fee
1. (License Fee) For each License Period the Customer shall pay the License Fee (the “License Fee”). Hypefactors will invoice the License Fee.
2. (Payment and Termination) The License Fee is an advanced payment for the License Period. The Licence Period is automatically renewed after the first period unless Hypefactors have received and confirmed a written cancellation no later than 90 days before the contract end date.
3. (Changes to the License Fee) Hypefactors reserve the right to adjust the licence fee up to 5% per year to cover increasing cost and inflation. Changes will become effective from the beginning of the next License Period.
