These general terms and conditions of supply (“General Terms”) set out the terms and conditions according to which Interact LLC, a limited liability company registered in the State of Delaware, United States of America, including its Affiliates (herein collectively referred to as “Interact”), and owner of the website http://www.nimblevox.com (the “Interact Website”), may provide access to a customer (herein referred to as “Customer”) to certain software based hosted telecommunication services (“Services”), as more fully described at the Interact Website. Interact and the Customer will jointly be referred to as “Parties” in these General Terms.
2 – APPLICABILITY
2.1 Subject to Customer’s acceptance of and compliance with these General Terms, and with the payment requirements for the Services, Interact hereby grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, non-sublicenseable right and license, in and under our intellectual property rights, to access and use the Services, solely in accordance with the terms and conditions of these General Terms.
2.2 Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features provided by Interact that augment or enhance the current Services shall also constitute “Services” and shall be subject to these General Terms. Customer may not, nor allow any third party to, copy, distribute, sell, disclose, lend, transfer, convey, modify, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer the software or other intellectual property owned by Interact, or its licensors, related to the Services for any purpose whatsoever. Customer may not allow any unauthorized third party to access the Services for any purpose whatsoever. All rights not expressly granted under these General Terms are retained by Interact.
2.3 These General Terms shall always supersede any conflicting pre-printed and/or standard Customer terms of any purchase orders.
2.4 These General Terms may be supplemented or amended in Interact’s sole and absolute discretion from time to time, and such amended terms and conditions shall be effective immediately upon posting to the Interact Website. Customer’s continued use of the Services after such posting will constitute acceptance by Customer of such amendments. It is Customer’s responsibility to review these General Terms frequently and remain informed about any changes to them, so Interact encourages Customers to visit this page often. Except to the extent modified or amended, the other terms and conditions remain unaffected.
3 – SPECIFICATIONS
3.1 The scope of Services are set out in the descriptive material at the Interact Website.
3.2 Customer may write a software application or website (an “Application”) that interfaces with the Services. Customer acknowledges that Interact may change, deprecate or republish APIs for any Service or feature of a Service from time to time, and that it is Customer’s responsibility to ensure that calls or requests Customer makes to or via the Services are compatible with then-current APIs for the Services. Interact will attempt to inform Customer of any changes with reasonable notice so Customer can adjust Customer’s Application, but Interact is under no obligation to do so.
3.3 All information contained in Interact’s brochures and other similar materials are non-binding.
4 – AUTHORISED USE
4.1 Customer and any Applications that Customer may build, distribute, or otherwise create may make network calls or requests to the Services, or the platforms that make up the Services, or may receive phone calls via the Service, at any time that the Services are available, provided that those requests do not violate the terms of these General Terms.

4.3 Provided that Customer complies with the terms of these General Terms, Customer may use the Services to execute Applications owned or lawfully obtained by Customer. Customer is solely responsible for Applications, including any data, text, images or content contained therein.
4.4 Customer is personally responsible for all traffic originating from Applications using Customer account credentials to the Services. As such, Customer should protect Customer authentication keys and security credentials. Actions taken using Customer credentials shall be deemed to be actions taken by the Customer, with all consequences including service termination, civil and criminal penalties.
4.5 Interact may make available to Customer, for Customer installation, copying and/or use in connection with the Services, from time to time, a variety of software, data and other content and printed and electronic documentation (the “Interact Properties”). Subject to Customer acceptance of these General Terms, on-going compliance with its terms and conditions with respect to the subject Services, and payment if and as required for Customer right to use the subject Services, Interact hereby grants to Customer, without the right to sublicense, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license during the Term of these General Terms, under Interact’s intellectual property or proprietary rights in the Interact Properties, only to install, copy and use the Interact Properties solely in connection with and as necessary for Customer’s use of such Services and solely to the extent in compliance with all the terms and conditions of these General Terms.

• Specifications describing the operational and functional capabilities, use limitations, technical and engineering requirements, and testing and performance criteria relevant to the proper use of a Service and its related APIs and technology.
4.7 Interact may make available under another license agreement, such as an open source agreement, additional content or software. Any such content or software will be clearly marked with such a license indicating the usage rights available for that content or software.

4.9 For purposes of these General Terms, Interact hereby grants to Customer a non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, non-exclusive license during the Term of these General Terms to display the trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names of Interact (each, an “Interact Mark”) for the purpose of promoting or advertising that Customer uses the Services. In return, Customer hereby grants Interact a non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, non-exclusive license during the Term of these General Terms to display Customer trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names and the like for the purpose of promoting or advertising that Customer uses the Services.

Other than as specified in General Terms, Customer may not use any Interact Mark unless Customer obtains Interact’s prior written consent.
4.10 The rights granted by Interact in these General Terms with respect to the Interact Properties, the Interact Marks and the Services are nonexclusive, and Interact reserve the right to:
(i) act as a developer of products or services related to any of the products that Customer may develop in connection with the Interact Properties or via Customer use of the Services; and
(ii) appoint third parties as developers or systems integrators who may offer products or services which compete with Customer Applications.

The policy can be found at Interact’s Website.
4.12 Notwithstanding the above, and without limitation to any other provision of these General Terms, Interact shall have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that Customer may incur with respect to loss of data associated with Customer account and data therein.

Interact may also endeavor to provide Customer with unique post-suspension or post-termination assistance, but Interact shall be under no obligation to do so. Customer’s right to take advantage of any such assistance, whether generally made available with respect to the Services or made available uniquely to Customer, shall be conditioned upon Customer acceptance of and compliance with any fees and terms Interact may specify for such assistance.
6. Downtime and Service Suspensions; Security
6.1 The Services are provided on a best-efforts basis. In addition to Interact’s right to terminate or suspend the use of Services to Customer as described herein, Customer acknowledges that:
(i) Customer’s access to and use of the Services may be suspended for the duration of any unanticipated or unscheduled downtime or unavailability of any portion or all of the Services for any reason, including as a result of power outages, system failures or other interruptions; and
(ii) Interact shall also be entitled, without any liability to Customer, to suspend access to any portion or all of the Services at any time, on a Services-wide basis:
(a) for scheduled downtime to permit Interact to conduct maintenance or make modifications to any Services;
(b) in the event of a denial of service attack or other attack on the Services or other event that Interact determines, in its sole discretion, may create a risk to the applicable Services, to Customer or to any of Interact’s other customers if the Services were not suspended; or
(c) in the event that Interact determines that any Services is prohibited by law or Interact otherwise determines that it is necessary or prudent to do so for legal or regulatory reasons;
(collectively, “Services Suspensions”).
Without limitation to any other provision in these General Terms, Interact shall have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that Customer may incur as a result of any Services Suspension. To the extent Interact is able, Interact will endeavor to provide Customer notice of any Services Suspension in accordance with the notice provisions set forth in these General Terms and to post updates regarding resumption of the availability of Services following any such Services Suspension, but shall have no liability for the manner in which Interact may do so or if Interact fails to do so.
6.2 Interact strives to keep information Customer provides to Interact secure, but cannot guarantee that Interact will be successful at doing so. Accordingly, without limitation to any other provision in these General Terms, Customer acknowledges that Customer bears sole responsibility for adequate security, protection and backup of Customer content including all audio recordings associated with Customer’s account. Interact strongly encourages Customer, where available and appropriate, to use encryption technology to protect Customer content from unauthorized access and to routinely archive Customer content. Interact will have no liability to Customer for any unauthorized access or use, corruption, deletion, destruction or loss of any of Customer content.
6.3 Customer agrees that it will not intentionally or knowingly take any steps to avoid or defeat the purpose of security measures associated with the Services or associated websites, including the public sharing of login information and/or passwords, attempts to compromise authentication protocol and malicious attacks on client portal (i.e. SQL injection, port scan, denial of service, etc.), reverse engineering of security measures, deconstruction or public sharing of proprietary code, or any other steps that would intentionally or knowingly use any means to avoid or defeat (or allow others to avoid or defeat) existing security measures associated with the Services or associated websites.
7.1 In its sole discretion, Interact shall determine whether Customer is eligible for a free trial subscription to its Services, which terms of the free trial are set forth at the Interact Website. Free trials are limited to one per Customer, and if Interact finds that Customer has created multiple free trial accounts, Interact reserves the right to suspend those accounts and take actions to prevent additional violations.
7.2 If Customer has subscribed to the full version of our Services, then Customer agrees to pay applicable fees (including any minimum subscription fees) as set forth at http://www.nimblevox.com/pricing. All payments of fees for the use of Interact’s Services will be pre-paid and are non-refundable. Access to the full version of our Services will not be made available until Interact receives payment of fees from Customer. If Customer does not use Interact’s Services for a period of 90 days, any remaining balance in Customer’s account will be forfeited. If Customer elects to use the Services again in the future, Customer will be required to prepay applicable fees before access to the Services will be made available for Customer use. Interact may increase or add new fees for any existing Services or Service’s features by giving Customer 30 days’ advance notice. All fees payable by Customer are exclusive of applicable taxes, including, without limitation, customs duties or levies, stamp duty, Goods and Services Tax and any value added, turnover, withholding or equivalent taxes levied on account of sales. Such taxes shall be payable in addition to the price. Customer will provide such information to Interact as reasonably required to determine whether Interact are obligated to collect any taxes from the Customer.
7.3 Interact may specify the manner in which Customer will pay any fees, and any such payments shall be subject to Interact’s general accounts receivable policies from time to time in effect. All amounts payable by Customer under these General Terms will be made without setoff or counterclaim and without deduction or withholding. If any deduction or withholding is required by applicable law, Customer shall notify Interact and shall pay such additional amounts to Interact as necessary to ensure that the net amount that Interact receives, after such deduction and withholding, equals the amount Interact would have received if no such deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, Customer shall provide Interact with documentation that the withholding and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.
7.4 Should Customer have any dispute as to fees associated with Customer’s account, please contact Interact at email@example.com within 30 days of the date of the activity that generated such dispute, and Interact will attempt to resolve the matter. Any and all refunds issued to resolve such a dispute shall be issued as credits to Customer account, but in no event shall there be any cash refunds. Disputes older than 30 days shall not be entitled to any refunds or credits.
7.5 Unless otherwise specified in the Agreement, all prices are expressed and all payments shall be effected in United States Dollars.
7.6 Payments shall be made to the bank account of Interact specified in any invoice. All invoices shall be payable in advance by cleared funds to Interact’s account. Interact may, at its sole option; assign any receivables without the prior written consent of the Customer.
7.8 If the Customer does not pay any amount due to Interact, Interact may, in addition to any other rights it may have, charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum in excess of the interest rate for the time being prescribed by LIBOR (3 month term) calculated from the date of invoice to the actual date of full and final payment. Any payment by the Customer shall be credited first against any interest so accrued and the balance of payment (if any) shall be applied in reduction of the outstanding balance of the Contract Price.
7.9 Interact reserves the right to: (a) require reasonable credit assurances and reasonable credit limits for purchases made by the Customer under these General Terms; and (b) suspend delivery of Services if any payment is overdue and/or if the credit limit established is exceeded and/or in the event of material adverse effect on the Customer’s overall creditworthiness.
