Services

Service Provider shall provide to Client such services and deliver to Client such deliverables as are described in any one or more mutually executed statements of work (each an “SOW”). There shall be no change to a SOW, other than pursuant to a written agreement referencing such SOW and signed by each of the Parties. Client (i) acknowledges that in some instances the provision of Services by Service Provider may be contingent in whole or in part upon Client’s delivery of information, data, and/or other deliverables specified in the applicable SOW; and (ii) agrees that to the extent that Client does not make such deliveries as and when specified in, and otherwise in compliance with, such SOW, Service Provider shall, at its option, be excused, without liability to Client, from providing the affected Services.

In the event a client enters into a Master Professional Services Agreement or Service Level Agreement with Service Provider (each, an “Agreement”), where conflict applies, the terms of such Agreement shall supersede the Terms and Conditions provided herein.

Fees

a) Except as may be stated otherwise in an applicable Agreement or SOW, Client agrees to pay Service Provider’s invoices NET 15 days from the invoice date. Amounts specified in an invoice and not paid by the due date shall bear interest from the due date until paid at the lesser rate of (i) 1.5% per month or (ii) the maximum non-usurious rate allowed by applicable law. 

b) If Client fails to pay any invoice in accordance with an applicable Agreement or SOW and/or the terms of such invoice, or to make any other payment under such an Agreement (including under any SOW) as and when due, Service Provider reserves the right, without waiving any other right by reason of Client’s breach or such action constituting an election of remedies, to suspend performance of any and all Services under such an Agreement or SOW until such outstanding amount(s), including interest accrued thereon, have been received by Service Provider.

Creative Services 

Client will provide Service Provider compliance approval of all Lead Creatives in writing. Upon request, Service Provider shall provide the Client with existing lead piece creatives.

Client Data

a) The Parties acknowledge and agree that the Services may include use, manipulation, and/or storage of Client data (“Client Data”) by or at the direction of Service Provider. The Parties agree that: (i) Service Provider may store Client Data with one or more third party providers, such as a colocation facility, and/or on Service Provider’s in-house servers, or otherwise, as determined by Service Provider in its sole discretion; (ii) Service Provider will cause Client Data to be stored, and the confidentiality thereof maintained, in accordance with then-current applicable industry standards; and (iii) in any event, Service Provider shall use commercially reasonable processes and procedures with respect to maintenance and confidentiality of Client Data.

b) Client agrees to maintain at its sole cost and expense at least one back-up copy of all Client Data in the format and media designated by Service Provider in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section below and to provide copies of all or any portion thereof as Service Provider may request from time to time in order to provide any of the Services.

c) With respect to any Services requiring Client to supply Client Data to Service Provider, Client shall deliver all such Client Data to Service Provider at Client’s sole expense, in such format(s) and upon such computer media as from time to time designated by Service Provider.

d) Upon the termination of Services, Client shall provide written instructions to Service Provider as to the manner in which Client desires Service Provider to return Client Data to Client. Service Provider shall deliver Client Data in accordance with such instructions, at Client’s expense, within fifteen (15) days of its receipt of such instructions. Service Provider shall have no obligation to deliver Client Data in any format other than that in which it is then being stored by Service Provider. If Client does not provide such written instructions within said thirty (30) day period, then Service Provider may, without liability to Client, destroy any and all Client Data, it being agreed, however, that for so long as Service Provider remains in possession of Client Data, even after the expiration or earlier termination of Services, Service Provider shall maintain such Client Data in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section hereof.

e) Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, in the event of loss, damage, or destruction to or of any Client Data while in Service Provider’s possession or control or that of a third-party processor or storage facility engaged by Service Provider, Service Provider’s liability to Client with respect to such loss, damage, or destruction shall be limited to the reasonable cost of regeneration of such Client Data utilizing Client’s copy of such Client Data maintained by Client pursuant to paragraph (b) of this section hereof.

f) Client hereby represents, warrants, and covenants that: (i) all Client Data is owned by and/or duly licensed to Client and that Client has all legal right and authority to deliver Client Data to Service Provider pursuant to the Services and to authorize and direct Service Provider to perform the Services, including with respect to all Client Data; (ii) no Client Data includes or is comprised of any information that is illegal for Client and/or Service Provider to own and/or possess, that is defamatory, that constitutes an infringement or violation of the privacy, intellectual property, or other right of any person or entity, that is obscene, and/or that is governed in whole or in part by privacy laws, rules, or regulations of any country other than the United States; and (iii) Client’s business practices, customer contact applications, data capture/usage, and marketing practices with respect to which Services are provided all comply with (A) applicable federal and state laws, including without limitation FCRA (defined below), (B) published policy guidelines of the Direct Marketing Association, and (C) all third party agreements by which Client is bound or to which the Client Data is subject.

g) Service Provider reserves the right (without being deemed to be in breach of these Terms or any applicable Agreement) to not use Client Data that Service Provider reasonably believes not to conform to or with any one or more of the representations contained in this section and to not provide Services that would utilize any such non-conforming Client Data. Under such circumstances there shall be no reduction in payments due from Client to Service Provider.

h) Client hereby grants to Service Provider a non-exclusive, terminable upon expiration or termination of the Services, paid up license to use, possess, and manipulate Client Data as reasonably necessary or appropriate for Service Provider to provide the Services. Service Provider acknowledges and agrees that, unless and except as expressly provided in an Agreement or SOW, the Services do not result in a transfer of ownership by Client to Service Provider of any Client Data.

Warranties

Performance. The Services will be performed in a reasonably professional and workmanlike manner by Service Provider employees who possess the requisite skills and knowledge necessary to perform the Services. Further, the Services will function in conformity with any applicable requirements or specifications set forth in an applicable Agreement or SOW or other documentation provided to the Client.

No Disabling Procedures. Service Provider shall not knowingly introduce or allow the introduction into the LeadForce system of any “viruses”, “worms”, “time bombs”, “time locks”, “drop dead devices”, “traps” or “trap door” devices designed to: (i) disrupt, disable, harm, or otherwise impede the operation of the LeadForce system; (ii) permit Service Provider or an unauthorized party to remotely access the Client’s computers or remotely cause disablement or impairment; or (iii) cause a corruption or damage to the Client’s data, storage media, programs, equipment or communications, or otherwise interfere with the operations of the Client.

Confidentially and Independent Use

Confidential Information shall not include information (i) which at the time disclosed to or obtained by the Receiving Party is in the public domain; (ii) which becomes part of the public domain through no fault of the receiving party; (iii) which was communicated to the receiving party by a third party who is not, to the receiving party’s knowledge, subject to any confidentiality obligations with respect thereto; (iv) which was independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information; or (v) which is required to be disclosed by law or legal process, including, without limitations, pursuant to the terms of a subpoena or other similar process or in connection with a litigation, arbitration or other proceeding, provided however, that the Receiving Party shall give prior timely notice in writing of such. 

c) Confidential Information received by the Receiving Party shall be held in confidence and surrendered to the disclosing party upon the earlier of termination of the Services or upon prior written request by the Disclosing Party. Upon Disclosing Party’s request, Recipient will promptly return all Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party or destroy such materials and certify the destruction to the Disclosing Party. Receiving Party will not, however, be obligated to erase Confidential Information contained in an archived computer system backup made in accordance with its security and/or disaster recovery procedures, provided that such archived copy will eventually be erased or destroyed in the ordinary course of data processing procedures and will remain fully subject to the obligations of confidentiality stated herein, until the earlier of the destruction of such copy or the expiration of the confidentiality obligations set out in these Terms. 

d) The Client and Service Provider shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding confidentiality of insured or customer information. Service Provider shall not furnish any data or information provided to Service Provider by the Client, an insured or potential customer to any third party without the written consent of the Client, except as reasonably necessary to fulfill its obligations pursuant to the Services or as required or permitted by applicable law.

The parties agree to use their reasonable best efforts to work with the other to ensure compliance with the applicable requirements of the Acts as they may affect the duties and obligations of each party under these Terms. Such compliance shall include, where applicable, a requirement that subcontractors or agents agree to written contractual provisions as the Client and Service Provider may develop.

f) Service Provider warrants and represents that it maintains a comprehensive written information security program that includes administrative, technical and physical safeguards for the protection of customer information to: (1) protect against anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of customer records and information obtained by financial institutions; (2) protect against unauthorized access to or use of such records or information which could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any customer; and (3) insure the security and confidentiality of customer records and information. Said security program document is available upon request.

Each party shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the other party and the administrators, directors, officers, trustees, employees or agents of the said other party, from and against any and all loses, claims, damages, actions, penalties, settlements, judgments and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising out of or relating to said other party’s performance or non-performance of its duties and obligation under these Terms including, but not limited to, the performance of said obligations by any contractors of said party.
