2. Acknowledgement and acceptance of terms
Our Service may integrate with other services on a number of platforms provided by third parties. Please be aware that your activities on each of these platforms may be subject to additional terms of service for that particular platform.
Certain parts of the Service may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified by us from time to time; your use of such Service is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms of Service by this reference. Prices of the Service are subject to change upon 30 days' notice from us. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the PageScout Site. PageScout shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension, or discontinuance of the Service.
The Service is available only for individuals aged 13 years or older. If you are age 13 or older but under the age of 18, or the legal age of majority where you reside if that jurisdiction has an older age of majority, then you agree to review these Terms of Service with your parent or guardian to make sure that both you and your parent or guardian understand and agree to these Terms of Service. You agree to have your parent or guardian review and accept these Terms of Service on your behalf. If you are a parent or guardian agreeing to these Terms of Service for the benefit of a child over the age of 13, then you agree to and accept full responsibility for that child's use of the Service, including all financial charges and legal liability that he or she may incur. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change the eligibility criteria for using the Service at any time. The right to access the Service is revoked where these Terms of Service or use of the Service is prohibited or to the extent offering, sale, or provision of the Service conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation.
If you are entering into these Terms of Service on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity, its affiliates, and all users who access the Service through your account to these Terms of Service, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity, its affiliates, and users associated with it. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these Terms of Service, you must not accept these Terms of Service and you may not use the Service. You further agree that you assume all responsibility and liability in connection with your use of the Service on behalf of such a company or other legal entity, and you shall be solely responsible for all disputes, if any, that arise due to your use of the Service on behalf of such a company or other legal entity.

Your obligations to end users:
- Roles. PageScout is a "service provider" to you, and you are a "customer" of our Services irrespective of whether you pay fees to obtain the Services. Any natural persons accessing or using your PageScout account, the websites, pages, features, or content created by you on our Services are deemed your "end users". PageScout does not have a direct relationship with any of your end users, therefore PageScout is not responsible for how you handle end user information.
- Applicable laws. You may have additional obligations under local law other than those described in this Terms of Service, particularly if you or your end users are located outside of the United States. Such obligations may be more restrictive than this Terms of Service. Use of the Services does not ensure compliance with such laws, nor is PageScout responsible for your compliance with such laws. To the extent PageScout has any obligations to assist you with handling end user information, such obligations are enumerated within a Data Processing Agreement executed between PageScout and you.
- Security safeguards. You will use all reasonable efforts to protect information collected from end users via your use of the Services, including any personal information obtained from unauthorized access or use. In the event you discover that the end user information collected by you has been breached, compromised, or inadvertently exposed to non-authorized third parties, you shall notify PageScout promptly of such a breach or exposure including the root cause, remediation steps, and compensating controls to ensure such a breach does not occur in the future.
- Security notification. You are responsible for providing notification to your end users, third parties, or authorities under the applicable breach notification statutes and any other applicable data protection laws. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for any personal injury or property damage arising from or relating to your use of any Services.
- Notice. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for providing any required notices and obtaining all required consents from end users in connection with any use of the Services. Your notice and consent must be compliant with all applicable data protection and security laws and regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, before collecting or using any end user information, you must provide adequate notice of the end user information you collect, how it will be used and/or shared, and obtain any necessary consents required under the applicable data protection laws and regulations. You agree to comply with all data protection laws and regulations (including those applying to personal information) in connection with your access and use of the Services.
- Privacy rights. You will respond to any end users wishing to exercise their privacy rights, under the applicable law, as it relates to any information collected via your use of the Services. For example, if end users located in certain jurisdictions may exercise a "right to be forgotten" (or "erasure") to the information you have collected about them, you shall comply with their request as required by applicable law. For clarity, you are directly responsible (or, the "data controller") for the information processed by your use of the Services, including any information processed via third-party applications available on the Services. PageScout is not a data controller to such information and is not responsible for responding to end users on your behalf. To the extent PageScout receives a request from an end user or authority about your use of the Services, PageScout will notify you as permitted by law.

Your sole remedy against us for dissatisfaction with the service or any content is to stop using the service or any such content. In no event shall we or our subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, or content providers (our "affiliates") be liable for any damages, including, without limitation, indirect, consequential, special, incidental, or punitive damages, resulting from the use or inability to use the service or the content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, and whether or not we or our affiliates are advised on the possibility of such damages.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, PageScout assumes no liability or responsibility for any (I) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of our service; (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all information, including personal information or financial information, stored therein; (iv) any errors, mistakes, losses, damage or unauthorized access resulting from the use of third party applications by you, by your end users, or by PageScout on your behalf; (v) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the service; (vi) any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through our service by any third party; (vii) any errors or omissions in any content or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the service; and/or (viii) user content or the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third party. In no event shall PageScout, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers, or licensors be liable to you for any claims, proceedings, liabilities, obligations, damages, losses, or costs in an amount exceeding one dollar.

12. Changes to the Service, termination, and indemnity
PageScout is constantly innovating and finding ways to provide our users with new features and services. Therefore, we may, without prior notice, change the Service, add features, stop providing the Service or features of the Service to you or to users generally, or create usage limits for the Service. We may permanently or temporarily terminate, downgrade, suspend, or prohibit your access to the Service without prior notice and liability for any reason, including if, in our sole determination, you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination of your use of the Service, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us and our Affiliates harmless from and against any demands, loss, liability, claims, or expenses (including attorneys' fees) made against us by any third party due to or arising out of your User Content, use of the Service, violation of these Terms of Service, or violation of any rights of another.
13. Amendments, notification procedures, and changes to the Agreement
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, update, or change the Terms of Service ("Updated Terms") from time to time, so you should review this page periodically. When we change the Agreement in a material manner, we will update the "last modified" date at the top of this page. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service. PageScout is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us.
Unless we make a change for legal or administrative reasons, we will provide reasonable advance notice before the Updated Terms become effective. PageScout may provide such notifications, whether the notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business-related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by PageScout in our sole discretion. PageScout reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification by contacting us at email@example.com. You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Service, and that your use of the Service after the effective date of the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms of Service and any Updated Terms before using the Service. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the Service from that point forward. The Terms of Service will govern any disputes arising before the effective date of the Updated Terms.
14. Dispute resolution
Informal negotiations. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this agreement ("dispute"), you and PageScout agree to first attempt to negotiate any dispute (except those disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is your billing address, with an email copy to the email address you have provided to PageScout. PageScout’s address for such notices is firstname.lastname@example.org.
You and PageScout agree that for any dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, London, UK have exclusive jurisdiction and you and PageScout agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by PageScout without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
Governing law, international use, and users. The Terms of Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the United Kingdom, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. You agree to the personal jurisdiction by and venue in the state and federal courts in London, UK, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue. The Service is controlled and operated from its facilities in the United Kingdom. Although the Service may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that the Service or the materials on the Service are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United Kingdom, and accessing the Service from territories where its use is illegal is prohibited. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United Kingdom and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations.
Entire agreement/severability. The Terms of Service represent the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter addressed herein and supersedes all prior to contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written or oral. The Terms of Service shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and lawful assigns.
No waiver. Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provisions of the Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our rights to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
Attorneys' and accountants' fees, remedies. In any action to enforce the Terms of Service, the prevailing party shall be entitled to attorneys' and accountants' fees and costs.
You agree that PageScout's remedy at law for any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement would be inadequate and that PageScout shall be entitled to specific performance or injunctive relief, or both, in addition to any damages that PageScout may be legally entitled to recover, together with reasonable expenses of any form of dispute resolution, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees.
No right or remedy of PageScout shall be exclusive of any other, whether at law or in equity, including without limitation damages injunctive relief, attorneys' fees, and expenses.
No instance of waiver by PageScout of its rights or remedies under these terms and conditions shall imply any obligation to grant any similar, future, or other waiver.
