Client Guard Inc. makes no warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the Services, including, without limitation, those as to accuracy, currentness, completeness, timeliness, or quality, warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, and those warranties that might be implied from a course of dealing, course of performance or trade usage. The Services are provided “AS IS”. Client Guard Inc. and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and representatives shall have no liability for, and Subscriber agrees not to sue for, any claim relating to Client Guard procuring, compiling, collecting, interpreting, reporting, communicating, or delivering the Services.
Subscriber will not disclose to any third party any information relating to Client Guard’s business, the Services, or information derived from the Services (“Information”), including, without limitation, Client Guard’s business, financial, and technical information, data sources, pricing, products, processes, systems, results of testing, terms of your Subscriber Agreement, and any summaries, analyses or other information derived from any of the foregoing (collectively, “Confidential Information”).
Subscriber certifies that it has implemented and maintains a comprehensive, written information security program that contains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards that are appropriate to the Subscriber’s size and complexity, the nature and scope of its activities, and the sensitivity of the information provided to Subscriber by Client Guard; and that such safeguards shall include the elements set forth in 16 C.F.R. § 314.4 and shall be reasonably designed to (i) insure the security and confidentiality of the information provided by Client Guard, (ii) protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such information, and (iii) protect against unauthorized access to or use of such information that could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any consumer.
Subscriber shall be solely liable and responsible for any Subscriber Security Incident(s) (“SSI”). A “Subscriber Security Incident” means any “breach of security” involving the Services and/or Information provided by Client Guard Inc. to Subscriber. “Breach of security” has the meaning associated with such phrase (or any similar phrase) in applicable U.S. federal and state privacy and data security laws (“Data Laws”).
In connection with a SSI, Subscriber, at its own cost and expense, shall (i) notify Client Guard Inc. within twenty-four (24) hours of any SSI by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and phone (407-459-8257), (ii) take prompt action to protect Information and Services involved in the SSI and minimize further unauthorized access or disclosure, (iii) investigate and respond to Client Guard’s reasonable requests, and (iv) comply with all Data Laws, including notifying consumers, government authorities, and/or other third parties, such as credit reporting agencies, that a SSI has occurred (collectively, the “Required Notifications”), and providing any required complimentary credit monitoring to consumers. Subscriber agrees Required Notifications shall not reference Client Guard Inc. (or its affiliates and parent company) or its Services, nor shall Client Guard Inc. be otherwise identified or referenced in connection with the SSI, without Client Guard’s express written consent.
Subscriber shall be solely liable for claims or penalties arising from a SSI including, but not limited to, penalties assessed by a governmental authority, costs of litigation (including attorneys’ fees), and reimbursement sought by individuals, including but not limited to, costs for credit monitoring or allegations of loss in connection with the SSI. Subscriber shall indemnify, defend, and hold Client Guard Inc. harmless, including its affiliates and parent company, and its and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, “Client Guard Inc. Indemnitees”) from and against all third-party claims for damages, final judgments, settlements and court costs brought against any of the Client Guard Inc. Indemnitees that arise or relate to a SSI.
In the event of a SSI, Client Guard Inc. may, in its sole discretion, take immediate action, including suspension or termination of Subscriber’s account, without further obligation or liability of any kind. Furthermore, Subscriber agrees that in the event of a SSI, Subscriber agrees to reasonably cooperate with any and all audits/requests for information by Client Guard, and to respond to any such audit/request for information within three (3) business days, unless an expedited response is required by Client Guard.
