5. Third Party Services.

The Services may permit you to link to other websites, services or resources on the Internet, and other websites, services or resources may contain links to the Services. When you access third party resources on the Internet, you do so at your own risk. These other resources are not under our control, and you acknowledge that we are not responsible or liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness or any other aspect of such websites or resources. The inclusion of any such link does not imply our endorsement or any association between us and their operators. You further acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such website or resource.

6. Payments and Billing.

(a) Paid Services. Certain of our Services may be subject to payments now or in the future (which, to the extent available, will be described on the Site) (the “Paid Services”). Please note that any payment terms presented to you in the process of using or signing up for a Paid Service are deemed part of this Agreement.

(b) Billing. We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you through a payment account linked to your Account on the Services (your “Billing Account”) for use of the Paid Services. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to use Paid Services, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Paid Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.

(c) Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.

(d) Recurring Billing. Some of the Paid Services may consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By choosing a recurring payment plan, you acknowledge that such services have an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. WE MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY US) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE WE REASONABLY COULD ACT. TO TERMINATE YOUR AUTHORIZATION OR CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD PLEASE SEE YOUR ACCOUNT PAGE.

(e) Current Information Required. YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY US OR OUR PAYMENT PROCESSOR IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE AT YOUR ACCOUNT PAGE. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY USE OF PAID SERVICES UNDER YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR PAID SERVICES AS SET FORTH ABOVE.

(f) Change in Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), you have the right to receive, and we shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.

(g) Auto-Renewal for Subscription Services. Unless you opt out of auto-renewal, which can be done through your Account page, any subscription-based services you have signed up for will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional rate. To change or cancel your subscription services at any time, go to your Account page. If you terminate a subscription service, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you won't be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. If Value Voting terminates for your breach, your access to the Services will immediately cease and no refund will be provided.

(h) Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination or continued use of a Paid Service reaffirms that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method for that Paid Service. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially selected to use the Paid Service.

(i) Free Trials and Other Promotions. Any free trial or other promotion that provides access to a Paid Service must be used within the specified time of the trial. You must stop using a Paid Service before the end of the trial period in order to avoid being charged for that Paid Service. If you cancel prior to the end of the trial period and are inadvertently charged for a Paid Service, please contact us at support@valuevoting.com.

7. Termination.

We may terminate or suspend your access to all or any part of the Services at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your membership. If you wish to terminate your Account, you may do so by following the instructions on your Account page or otherwise on the Site. If your termination is due to our breach, such termination will be effective only if you provide us within written notice of such breach and we fail to cure the breach within ten (10) days from receipt of such notice. Any fees paid hereunder are non-refundable; provided that, in the event this Agreement is terminated by Value Voting without cause, or terminated by you for our breach as set forth above, you shall receive a refund of the pro-rata portion of the fees paid by you in advance for the unused portion of the then-current subscription period. All provisions of these Terms of Service which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, license and use restrictions, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

(a) Entire Agreement and Severability. These Terms of Service are the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Services, including use of the Site, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and us with respect to the Services. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Service will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.

Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement

Please read this document fully and carefully before uploading Proprietary Information to www.valuevoting.com (“Site”) and using the services Value Voting, Inc. (“Value Voting”, “Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) offers. We can only offer our product with your (“User”) assurance that you understand how we are using your data and what restrictions apply to its use.

Selected Services and Functions Explained

1. Introduction

(a) It is important that you understand how the platform works, the features it offers, and what your team members will be able to do on the platform. Our obligations under this confidentiality agreement do not extend to any disclosure of information to a Third Party that arises of your use of our services.

2. How the Site Works

(a) Our product improves the efficacy of your outreach to elected officials by providing the following data and services:

  • (i) we categorize the voting history of your members (“Voter Type”);
  • (ii) we calculate the number of members your organization has eligible to vote in elections for a specific office;
  • (iii) we display the historic turnout for these elections;
  • (iv) and, we simplify the communication of this information along with your chosen policy position to selected elected officials.

(b) Our product improves the quality of your member data: we allow you to export your member file from the Site with the birth dates and Voter Types of your members appended. Note that we can only provide this information for members our system matched with our enhanced state voter file.

(c) Our product improves coordination between allied groups (our “Coalitions” feature): we enable sharing anonymized voter data, automatic de-duplication of shared voter statistics, exchange of policy papers, and simplify the communication of combined electoral information along with your chosen policy position to selected officials.

3. Your Member List

(a) You first upload your member list (“Member List”) to the platform. It is the only way we can determine your members’ Voter Types and their electoral districts. We never share your members’ identifying information (i.e. names, addresses, birth dates, or contact information) with any Third Parties.

If you or the authorized users in your organization choose to use our coalitions feature, you will be sharing the Voter Types of your members who are constituents of a selected official with your allies. An example for clarity: if group A has 500 unique constituents of a Congressman who are primary voters and group B has 250 unique constituents of that Congressman who are midterm voters, both organizations would be able to see the aggregated total for Lamar Smith - 750 voters, 500 primary voters, 250 midterm voters - and the aggregated number provided by each group - group A provided 500 primary voters and group B provided 250 midterm voters.

When you start or join a coalition, you do so with the understanding that this anonymized, aggregated voter information may be shared with all organizations that are part of the coalition.

4. Your Organization’s Staff and Their Roles on the Platform

(a) You can assign staff three roles on the platform: intern, teammate, and administrator. The user who sets up your organization’s account has administrator privileges by default. We want to highlight the unique abilities of teammates and administrators. First, teammates and administrators can create and join coalitions. Second, administrators can export your enhanced member data. If you do not want the initial creator of your account on the “Site” to have administrator privileges and the ability to export the enhanced member data, any other Administrator can change their role to teammate.

To keep your data secure, we ask that you assign the correct roles to the proper individuals within your organization. For example, if you do not want a colleague to have the ability to export the enhanced member list, do not make that person an administrator. You are expected to keep your user list and permissions up to date, i.e. removing users who have left the organization.

Additional Binding Terms

This Agreement is made and entered into on the date an Authorized User, defined as a person who has been authorized to enter into legal agreements on behalf of their affiliated advocacy organization (“Organization”), registers for an account with Value Voting, Inc (“Company”). The Agreement is by and between the Organization and Company. Any user who uploads an Organization’s member information to the Site represents that they are Authorized Users or have been given approval from an Authorized User to do so.

The Company understands that the Organization has disclosed or may disclose information relating to the Organization’s business (including, without limitation, ideas, inventions and other technical, business, financial, customer and product development plans, forecasts, strategies and information), which is hereinafter referred to as “Proprietary Information.”

The Company agrees to hold the Organization’s Proprietary Information in confidence and to take reasonable precautions to protect such Proprietary Information and not to divulge any such Proprietary Information or any information derived therefrom to any third person. Without granting any right or license, the Organization agrees that the foregoing obligation shall not apply with respect to the following:

  1. The Organization’s use of the Site’s features and services.
  2. The name of the Organization and its use of the Company’s services.
  3. The Company’s internal or external use of anonymized, aggregated statistics.
  4. Information that is or becomes (through no improper action or inaction by the Company or any affiliate, agent, consultant, or employee of the Company) generally available to the public.
  5. Information that was in its possession or known by the Company without restriction prior to receipt from the Organization.
  6. Information that was independently developed without use of or reference to any Proprietary Information of the Organization.

Promptly upon a request by the Organization, the Company will turn over to the Organization or delete all Proprietary Information of the Organization and all documents or media containing any such Proprietary Information and any and all copies or extracts in the Company’s possession.

This Agreement will survive until terminated by either party on thirty (30) days’ notice. Notwithstanding the earlier termination of this Agreement, the Company’s obligations under this Agreement shall continue.

The Company acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of the Organization’s Proprietary Information, there may be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations hereunder, which breach may result in irreparable harm to the Organization, and therefore, that upon any such breach or any threat thereof, the Organization shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief, without requirement of posting a bond, in addition to whatever remedies it might have at law.

Any dispute arising from or relating to the Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement shall be decided in Travis County, Texas, in English, in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. ("JAMS") then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction. For purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state or federal courts located in Austin, Travis County, Texas.

In the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to the conflicts of law provisions thereof. This Agreement supersedes all prior discussions and writings and constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.
