Last Updated: August 15, 2019
These General Terms and the Service Order(s) (together, the Agreement) form a contract between you and LEADx. This Agreement governs your subscription to, and use of, LEADx’s website and/or other related applications or services including but not limited to translation, analytics and individual and organizational level feedback (together, the Services).
As the Customer, you agree to this Agreement by signing a document that references this Agreement (and you expressly agree and consent to use electronic signatures to execute this Agreement or associated documents), or by using the Services, whichever occurs first. If you are an organization, the individual who agrees to this Agreement on your behalf must have the authority to bind you to this Agreement, and both you and such individual represent that to be the case.
1.1 LEADx SERVICES
During the Term, we will provide you with access to, and use of, the Services ordered by you as described in the Service Order. You may order additional services at any time during the Term by contacting our Customer Success team. We will invoice you for any additional services you order after the start of the Term at the time those Services are ordered.
1.2 CUSTOMER SUPPORT
LEADx accepts email to [email protected] and in-app support questions can be submitted through the help widget. We respond to email and in-app support questions within one business day; in practice, our responses are generally within minutes or hours. Issues resulting from your use of API's may be outside the scope of support. We will only provide support for integrations which are listed in the Service Order form.
1.3 CHANGES TO SERVICES
We continually change and improve our Services. LEADx may alter the Services at any time without prior notice. We will endeavor to provide you with prior notice if we make a change to the Services resulting in an overall material decrease in functionality of the Services. If we do make a change that results in a material decrease in functionality, you may terminate your Subscription under clause 8.4.
1.4 SUSPENSION OF SERVICES
We may limit or suspend the Services from time to time at our discretion (for example, to perform scheduled maintenance or in the event of a security emergency). If LEADx limits or suspends the Services, we will endeavor to give you reasonable advance notice so that you can plan around it. However, there may be some situations, such as security emergencies, where it may not be practicable for us to give you advance notice. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of the suspension or limitation as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action.
We may suspend your access to or use of the Services following thirty (30) days’ written notice if Customer is in material breach of this Agreement or any Service Order (including but not limited to Customer’s failure to pay LEADx the fees).
1.4 THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
If you use any third-party service with the Services (for example, Degreed, Sum Total, or Workday integrations), you acknowledge that third party service may access or use the Customer Data. LEADx will not be responsible for any act or omission of the third party, including such third party’s use of Customer Data. LEADx does not warrant or support any such third party service, and you should contact that third party for any issues arising from your use of the third party service.
2 Fees and Payments
2.1 FEES FOR SERVICES
LEADx Services are billed on a subscription basis (Subscription) and you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (called a Billing Cycle). The Billing Cycle for your Subscription is outlined in the Service Order. You agree to pay LEADx any fees for each Service you purchase or use, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for those Services in the Service Order.
2.2 PRICE CHANGES AND USER INCREASES
LEADx may change its fees for Services at any time. Except where you exceed the User limit indicated in a Service Order, any changes to fees will apply from the start of your next Subscription Term.
2.3 PAYMENT METHODS
You authorize us to charge for fees using the payment method indicated in the Service Order. Unless otherwise agreed and noted in the service order, payments for invoices are due 30 days after the invoice date. If you elect to pay by credit card, debit card, or any other billing method that supports automatic recurring payments, we will initially attempt to charge you using that billing method when payment is due, and payments will be considered overdue if payment is not received within 30 days of that due date. If your card cannot be charged, LEADx will notify you and you will need to update your payment information. In the event you do not update your payment information within 22 days of LEADx’s notice, your access to the Service may be suspended and you will need to update your card information in order to resume use of the Service. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service.
Unless stated otherwise in the Service Order, all fees for Services exclude sales tax, GST, VAT, or other similar taxes. Except for any income taxes payable by LEADx, you are responsible for all other taxes or duties payable under applicable law relating to the Services provided under this Agreement, including any penalties or interest. If LEADx is required to collect or pay any taxes on your behalf, we will invoice you for those taxes unless you provide us with valid evidence that no tax should be invoiced.
3 Data Protection
In the course of using the Services, you or your Users may transfer to us Customer Data containing personal data. You agree and consent to the use, transfer, processing, and storage of Customer Data in accordance with this Agreement.
If you or your Users are based in the European Union while using our Services, we will process your personal information as a data processor on your behalf. In this case, you will be considered to be the data controller of the personal information as defined in Article 4(7) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and the EU e-Privacy Directive (Directive 2002/58/EC).
If requested, we will execute the European Union Standard Contractual Clauses to facilitate the transfer of personal information to countries outside the European Union in accordance with Article 26(2) of the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.
Under no circumstances will any entity in the LEADx Group be deemed a data controller with respect to Customer Data under any relevant law or regulation.
LEADx will store and process Customer Data in a manner consistent with industry security standards. LEADx has implemented technical, organizational, and administrative systems, policies, and procedures to help ensure the security, integrity, and confidentiality of Customer Data and to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access to or use of Customer Data.
3.3 DISASTER RECOVERY
LEADx will retain backup copies of Customer Data made in the ordinary course of business by LEADx, for the purpose of enabling appropriate disaster recovery practices. Despite any other term in this Agreement, LEADx will retain these backups for a period of up to 90 days from the time that each backup copy is generated. Thereafter, Customer agrees and acknowledges that Customer Data will be irretrievably deleted from backups.

8.4 DATA EXPORTS
The Services include functionality that enables you to export Customer Data in your account at any time during the Term.
