2. Overview of Our Services
Upon registration, each Customer will be given access to a discrete “Workspace” (which will include access to certain non-public application features) where it will access the Services and through which it can invite other users to subscribe to the Services.
Services provided for no charge may have data and other limitations placed upon them.
Customers are responsible for managing the activity of all users accessing its Workspace.
As long as you (the user) are in compliance with these Terms (and any Purchase Order, as the case may be), you are hereby granted a limited, revocable, non- transferrable license to access and use the Websites and (if applicable) your Workspace and other restricted portions of the Services, subject to these Terms.
Customers may desire that we provide professional services in addition to the Services including, but not limited to, implementation, onboarding, additional training, customization, development, support, and other similar services (collectively, “Professional Services”); if Professional Services are to be provided, they will identified and specified in your Purchase Order.
In order to access certain features of the Services you will be required to register for an account (“Account”). If you choose to register, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the applicable registration form (the “Registration Data”); and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete.
You will be responsible for paying all applicable fees when due and you represent that you are: (a) of legal age to form a binding contract; and (b) not restricted from using the Services by law or these Terms. If you are registering on behalf of a legal entity (e.g., a company), you represent that you can bind that entity to these Terms.
Following registration, you (or your company, as the case may be) are responsible at all times for all activities that occur under your Account. You may not share your Account or password with anyone, and you agree to notify Ingenious immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or any other breach of security. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or if Ingenious has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Ingenious has the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof). You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself (except, of course, if you are legitimately registering on behalf of a business entity). Ingenious reserves the right to remove or reclaim any usernames at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, claims by a third party that a username violates the third party’s rights. You agree not to create an Account or use the Services if you have been previously removed by Ingenious, or if you have been previously banned from use of the Services.
Registration and use of the Services is limited to individuals who are at least 18 years of age. Ingenious may cancel any Account that does not comply with this restriction.
4. Payments and Fees, Payment Processing Services
Many elements of the Services are offered by Ingenious for a fee. The fees for such Services will be set forth in your Purchase Order. Unless otherwise agreed in writing or in a Purchase Order, fees are subject to change without notice. Unless otherwise agreed in writing or in a Purchase Order, you agree to pay us annually in advance for access to the Services. If you elect to pay fees with a credit card, we will bill your credit card for those fees, and you hereby authorize us to charge your credit card or to charge any form of payment you have obtained or proffered to replace your credit card.
You agree to provide us with accurate and complete billing information including legal name, address, telephone number, and credit card or debit card billing information (as applicable). If such information is false or fraudulent, we reserve the right to terminate your use of the Services in addition to seeking any other legal remedies. We are not responsible for any charges or expenses (e.g., for overdrawn accounts, exceeding credit card limits, etc.) resulting from charges billed by us under these Terms. Each charge will be considered valid unless disputed by you in writing within thirty (30) days after the billing date. No adjustments will be made for disputed charges made more than thirty (30) days after the billing date. All fees will be paid in U.S. dollars and are due as set forth on the Websites or your Purchase Order. Our fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you will be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on our income.
In addition to the foregoing, if you purchase any Services that are sold on an ongoing subscription basis (each a “Subscription”), you acknowledge that your Subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature, and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges that accrue prior to cancellation of your Subscription, and further, you acknowledge that your Subscription will be automatically extended for successive periods of one year each after the expiration of the term agreed upon in your Subscription (or as otherwise specified in the applicable Purchase Order).
To cancel the automatic renewal of your Subscription at any time, you must notify your assigned Customer Success Manager via email or otherwise send a cancellation request to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 30 days prior to the expiration of the term (initial or extended, as the case may be) of your Subscription; failure to send such cancellation notice within the referenced timeframe will result in the auto-renewal of your Subscription for the subsequent year.
Your renewal date will be the anniversary of your sign-up date unless otherwise agreed in writing or set forth in a Purchase Order. If you cancel the automatic renewal of your Subscription as referenced above, you may use your Subscription until the end of your then-current Subscription term; you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the Subscription fee paid for the then-current Subscription period. If Ingenious does not receive payment for a renewal prior to the date of renewal, Ingenious may, in its discretion, do one or more of the following: (a) demand full payment; (b) charge any form of payment you have obtained to replace your provided form of payment (e.g., you have obtained a replacement credit card number), and you hereby authorize Ingenious to do so; and (c) terminate or suspend your Account or Subscription.
You acknowledge and agree that service pricing, terms, and descriptions (if any) set forth in our Websites, Services, and Purchase Orders will constitute additional Terms.

All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) arising under or in connection with these Terms, the use of any product or service provided by Ingenious, (including but not limited to the Websites and Services), or related to the collection or processing of personal information or data by Ingenious, which cannot be resolved informally or on an individual basis in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this section (this “Arbitration Agreement”). Unless otherwise agreed, all arbitration proceedings will be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and Ingenious, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.
Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to Ingenious should be sent to: IngeniousIO, Inc., 414 Union Street, Suite 1900, Nashville, Tennessee 37219.
After the Notice is received, you and Ingenious may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and Ingenious do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
Arbitration shall be initiated through the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secrets, or any other matter in which injunctive relief may be granted and is sought shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
You agree that the business and technical information of Ingenious, including, but not limited to, the Services and all software, source code, inventions, algorithms, know-how, and ideas related thereto, which is designated in writing as confidential or disclosed in a manner that a reasonable person would understand the confidentiality of the information disclosed, shall be the confidential property of Ingenious and its licensors (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) is previously rightfully known to you without restriction on disclosure; (b) is or becomes known to the general public, through no act or omission on the part of you; (c) is disclosed to you by a third party without breach of any separate nondisclosure obligation; or (d) is independently developed by you (and such development can be demonstrated by clear written evidence).
Except for the specific rights granted by these Terms, you agree that you will not access, use, or disclose any of our Confidential Information without our written consent, and that you shall use at least the standard of care to protect the Confidential Information that is used to protect your own confidential information, but not less than reasonable care to protect our Confidential Information. You will be responsible for any breach of confidentiality by your employees, agents, and contractors.
Nothing herein shall prevent you from disclosing any Confidential Information as necessary pursuant to any applicable court order, law, rule or regulation; provided that prior to any such disclosure, you shall use reasonable efforts to (a) promptly notify Ingenious (to the extent legally permitted) in writing of such requirement to disclose, and (b) cooperate with Ingenious in protecting against or minimizing any such disclosure or obtaining a protective order.
17. General Provisions
You hereby release Ingenious and its successors from claims, demands, any and all losses, damages, rights, and actions of any kind, including personal injuries, death, and property damage, that is either directly or indirectly related to or arises from your use of the Websites or Services or any interaction between you and any other user of the Services. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
These Terms, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without our prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Ingenious shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, pandemic, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of Illinois, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Venue is exclusively in the state or federal courts (or arbitrators), as applicable, located in closest proximity to Nashville, Tennessee, with respect to any dispute arising under this Agreement, and the parties expressly agree to such exclusive jurisdiction and venue and waive any claims or arguments as to an inconvenient forum.
Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of the Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
If any provision of the Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of the Terms will remain enforceable, and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
You may not use, export, import, or transfer the Services except as authorized by U.S. law, the laws of the jurisdiction in which you obtained the Services, and any other applicable laws. In particular, but without limitation, the Services may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any United States embargoed countries, or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Person’s List or Entity List.

These Terms are the final, complete, and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede and merge all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matter. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in those instances where you have paid for Services or had access to Services purchased on your behalf (e.g., by your employer) (as opposed to visiting a Website or using a free version of the Services), these Terms are and shall be subordinate to (a) any SaaS Terms incorporated into the Purchase Order entered into for such paid Services, or (b) the version of the SaaS Terms that is separately and physically (i.e., wet signature, electronic signature, etc.) signed by the parties (“Signed MSA”), and the parties acknowledge and agree that the terms of such instruments will control the obligations of the parties with respect to the paid Services in lieu of these Terms.
Please note that the Terms are subject to change by Ingenious in its sole discretion at any time. When changes are made, Ingenious will make a new copy of the Terms available on the Websites, and we will also update the effective date on the Terms. Your continued access of the Websites and use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of such change(s). You are responsible for reviewing these Terms from time to time to be aware of all changes.
