  • Your end users’ use of the Services in or through an application or service you provide;
  • Content you or your end users submit, post to, extract from, or transmit through the Services.

You agree to comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and third party agreements in your use of the Services.

Resolving Disputes

Aclima will attempt to resolve any dispute with you informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, a formal proceeding may follow such as arbitration.

Judicial forum for disputes: You and Aclima agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California. Aclima and you both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts. If you reside in a country (for example, European Union member states) with laws that give consumers the right to bring disputes in their local courts, this paragraph doesn’t affect those requirements.

No Class Actions: You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a member in a class, in a consolidated or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed. 

 

Controlling Law

These Terms will be governed by California law, in the United States of America, except for its conflicts of laws principles. However, some countries (including those in the European Union) have laws that require agreements to be governed by the local laws of the consumer's country. This paragraph doesn’t override those laws.

 

Entire Agreement

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Aclima with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights or rights of survivorship.

 

Waiver, Severability & Assignment

Aclima’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Aclima may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in the interest of any business associated with the Services.

 

Feedback

You agree that we may freely exploit and make available any and all feedback, suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, recommendations, or other information you provide to us relating to the Services. 

 

Modifications

We may revise these Terms, and policies related to it (e.g. our Privacy Policy or Information Guidelines), from time to time to better reflect:

  • changes to the law,
  • new regulatory requirements, or
  • improvements or enhancements made to our Services.

If an update materially affects your use of the Services or your legal rights as a user of our Services, we’ll notify you prior to the update's effective date by sending an email to the email address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. These updated terms will be effective no less than 30 days from when we notify you. You may not be notified of non-material changes to our terms or policies. 

If you don’t agree to the updates we make, please cancel your account before they become effective. By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

Information will not be considered Confidential Information if (i) it was lawfully in the recipient's possession before receiving it from the discloser; (ii) it is provided in good faith to the recipient by a third party without breaching any rights of the discloser or any other party; (iii) it is or becomes generally available to, or accessible by, the public through no fault of the recipient; or (iv) it was or is independently developed by the recipient without reference to the discloser’s Confidential Information. In the event that the recipient or any representative of the recipient becomes legally compelled (by law, rule, regulation, subpoena, or similar court process) to disclose any of the Confidential Information, the recipient will (if permitted to do so) provide the discloser with notice of such circumstances and will limit such disclosure to the required disclosure.

9.2 Enterprise Security and Continuity Standards: During the Term, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the following “Enterprise Security Standards”:

  1. Security Practices. Aclima will implement and maintain industry standard security and data protection practices of comparable level to other companies of Aclima’s size and scope of operations; and
  2. Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity. Aclima has and will maintain a disaster recovery and business continuity plan.

 

10. ENTERPRISE SERVICES WARRANTIES, INDEMNITIES AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY 

10.1 Mutual Warranties: Each of Aclima and Customer represents and warrants that (a) it has the power and authority to enter into agreements and to perform its obligations and duties hereunder; and (b) it will perform its obligations and duties and exercise its rights in compliance with all laws applicable to it.

10.2 Aclima Warranties: Aclima warrants that: (a) the functionality of the Enterprise Services will not be materially decreased during the term of the applicable Order Form; and (b) to its knowledge, the Enterprise Services do not contain any malicious code or viruses.

10.3 Indemnification by Aclima: Subject to Customer’s compliance with this provision, Aclima will defend Customer from and against any and all third-party claims that the use of the Enterprise Services as permitted hereunder directly infringes a valid U.S. or Canada patent or copyright or misappropriates a third party’s trade secret (a “Claim”) and will indemnify Customer for any damages awarded by final non-appealable judgment against, and for reasonable legal fees incurred by, Customer in connection with any such Claim.

Aclima will have no liability for any Claim to the extent it arises from:

  1. a modification of the Enterprise Services by or at the direction of any person other than Aclima;
  2. use of the Enterprise Services in violation of the Terms or Supplemental Terms or applicable law;
  3. use of the Enterprise Services after Aclima notifies Customer to discontinue use because of an infringement or misappropriation claim;
  4. the combination, operation, or use of the Enterprise Services with any other software, program, or device not provided or specified by Aclima to the extent such infringement would not have arisen but for such combination, operation, or use; or
  5. use of the Enterprise Services in a manner that is inconsistent with their intended use.

If the Enterprise Services or any part thereof have become, or in Aclima’s opinion are likely to become, the subject of any Claim, Aclima may at its option and expense:

  1. procure for Customer the right to continue using the Enterprise Services as set forth hereunder;
  2. replace or modify the Enterprise Services or applicable functionalities to make them non-infringing; or
  3. if options (a) or (b) are not reasonably practicable, terminate any agreement for the provisions of such Enterprise Services and refund to Customer any unearned Fees that Customer paid in advance for such Enterprise Services.

This provision sets forth Aclima’s sole liability (and Customer’s sole remedy) regarding infringement or misappropriation of third-party rights.

10.4 Indemnification by Customer: Were not otherwise prohibited by applicable statute, Customer will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Aclima, its Affiliates, and its or their directors, officers, employees, agents, shareholders, successors and assigns from and against all claims, losses, damages, penalties, liability, and costs, including reasonable legal fees, of any kind or nature that are incurred in connection with or arising out of a third-party claim: arising from Customer’s breach of any of the Terms or these Supplemental Terms.

10.5 Indemnification Procedure: The indemnified party will: (a) give written notice of the claim to the indemnifying party promptly and in any event no later than ten (10) days after the indemnified party receives the claim; (b) give the indemnifying party sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim (provided that the indemnifying party may not enter into any settlement, compromise or consent to judgment with respect to any claim without the indemnified party’s prior written consent unless such settlement, compromise or consent to judgment unconditionally releases the indemnified party of all liability); and (c) provide the indemnifying party with reasonable cooperation and assistance at the indemnifying party’s expense.

10.6 Except as may be expressly provided in a separately negotiated enterprise services agreement, and not including customer’s obligation to pay all fees owed to Aclima hereunder, in no event will either party's aggregate liability to the other party for all claims of any kind, including any claims arising out of or related to this agreement, whether by statute, contract, tort, or under any other theory of liability, exceed the fees paid by any customer for the services subject to the claim during the six (6) month period immediately preceding the date on which the cause of action arose. The limitations of liability in this provision also apply to our affiliates and the directors, officers, employees, and agents of Aclima and our affiliates (the “Aclima Parties”) and to claims brought based on any cause of action, including breach of contract, tort (including negligence), statute or other legal or equitable theory.

10.7 Excluded Damages. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will either party, its directors, employees, agents, or licensors be liable for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, or for loss of profits, goodwill or data or other intangible losses, that result from the use of, or inability to use, the enterprise services or any other aspect of this agreement.

Your exclusive remedy for any breach, interruption, or cessation of access or transmission to or from the services are set forth in herein. 

 

11. EXPORTS CONTROL(S)

The use of the services may be subject to import and export laws of the United States and other countries. You agree and acknowledge that you will comply with all import and export laws and regulations. Specifically, you warrant and represent that the services and/or related software may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries or (b) to anyone on the US Treasury Department’s List or Entity List.

Cookies are then sent back to the originating webpage on each subsequent visit, or to another webpage that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our Site before or whether you are a new visitor. 

There are two broad categories of cookies:

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are session cookies, meaning that they are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are persistent cookies, meaning that they are saved on your computer or mobile device for a fixed period and are not deleted when your browser is closed. They can be used by Aclima website to recognize your computer or mobile device when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

 

WHY DO WE USE COOKIES

We use cookies for a variety of reasons, including to:

  • enable, facilitate and streamline the functioning of and your access to the Site;
  • track traffic flow and patterns of travel in connection with the Site;
  • understand the total number of visitors to our Website on an ongoing basis and the types of internet browsers (e.g. Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer) and operating systems (e.g. Windows or Mac OS) used by our visitors;

We have set out some further information about each category:

  • Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Sites.

WHAT ABOUT OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES, LIKE WEB BEACONS? 

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. Our partners and service providers may employ software technologies that help us manage our Site to see what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use clear gifs or pixels in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We may tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to your Personal Information.

 

CHANGES TO THIS COOKIE POLICY 

We will occasionally update this Cookie Policy to reflect changes in our practices and services. When we post changes to this Cookie Policy, we will revise the "Last Updated" date at the top of this Cookie Policy. If we make any material changes in the way we collect, use, and/or share information held in cookies, we will notify you by prominently posting notice of the changes on the Aclima Website. We recommend that you check this page from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Cookie Policy or any of our other policies.

 

COOKIES THAT HAVE BEEN SET IN THE PAST

If you have disabled one or more Cookies, we may still use information collected from cookies prior to your disabled preference being set, however, we will stop using the disabled cookie to collect any further information.

INFORMATION REQUESTS AND OTHER LEGAL GUIDELINES 

Last Update June 2020

 

LEGAL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT INFORMATION REQUESTS 

Aclima will review and respond to properly served requests for user information in accordance with its privacy policy, terms of service, and applicable law. Aclima reserves the right to object to requests that are improperly served, burdensome, overly broad or vague, or inappropriate as determined in its discretion. Aclima will notify its customers and users of relevant requests for information in its sole discretion unless legally prohibited.

 

DISCOVERY OR INFORMATION REQUESTS

Non-content confidential and proprietary information generated from Aclima Services will not be released to third parties in the absence of valid subpoena, court order or other legal process. 

 

LAW ENFORCEMENT REQUIREMENTS

Non-content user information will not be released to law enforcement except in response to a valid subpoena, court order, or other legal process. Content information will only be disclosed in response to a probable cause search warrant from an agency with proper jurisdiction. Under US law, including the federal Stored Communications Act, 18 U.S.C. Sections 2701-2712:

  1. A valid subpoena issued in connection with an official criminal investigation is required for Aclima to disclose non-content user information as defined in 18 US Code section 2703(c)(2) -- e.g. name, means of payment, and length of service.
  2. A court order issued under 18 US Code section 2703(d) is required for Aclima to disclose other non-content information.
  3. A probable cause search warrant issued under the procedures described in the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure or equivalent state warrant is required for Mapbox to disclose user content information -- e.g. maps, data, and/or communications with Aclima or its services -- or other location-specific information.

If, in our good faith judgment, there is an emergency involving the danger of death or severe physical injury, we may also provide the limited information necessary to prevent that harm.

 

INFORMATION PRESERVATION REQUESTS

If not unduly burdensome or otherwise inappropriate, Aclima will take reasonable steps to preserve a snapshot of any existing time-sensitive Services information in connection with a criminal investigation for up to 90 days, pending receipt of a properly served law enforcement request or valid subpoena.

 

FORMAT OF REQUESTS

Requests for user information must include:

  1. User email address
  2. Details of the specific information being requested and its relationship to a valid investigation
  3. Requester's name, title, agency, office, official email address, and direct phone number
  4. Deadline to respond, which must be reasonable and on not less than 30 days notice

 

WHERE TO SEND REQUESTS

Law enforcement officials can submit requests by mail or in person at: Aclima, Inc. Attn: Legal, 10 Lombard Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94111 or via email to legal@aclima.io.  While we agree to accept service of law enforcement requests by these methods, neither Aclima nor our users waive any legal rights based on this accommodation.

  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works on Aclima are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works from Aclima;
  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Aclima to locate the material;
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit Aclima to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address;
  5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
