Terms of Payment
Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, Account Holder shall pay UserVoice the fees set forth on our Plans page. Account Holder shall be solely responsible for the payment of, and shall pay when due and indemnify UserVoice against, all applicable federal and state taxes, and payments to UserVoice under this Agreement (except for taxes assessed on UserVoice’s net income).
The term of this Agreement shall be the subscription term for the Service as set forth on our Plans page (the “Term”). Unless otherwise agreed to in writing or specified on the Plans page, the subscription term and the term of this Agreement shall automatically renew (the “Automatic Renewal”) on the first day following the end of the current subscription term (the “Renewal Date”). Account Holder may cancel such Automatic Renewal by terminating the subscription and this Agreement as set forth herein or by providing written notice, at least 30 days prior to the Renewal Date, that Account Holder does not wish to renew the subscription.
UserVoice may terminate this Agreement in the event that Account Holder breaches this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 30 days after receiving written notice thereof. In the event of any such termination, (a) Account Holder will remain liable for any amount due under this Agreement (adjusted on a pro rata basis, if applicable) and (b) UserVoice will destroy all Account Holder Data in its possession after giving Account Holder a reasonable opportunity to download such data.
Account Holder may terminate this Agreement and its subscription to the Service by providing UserVoice with written notice of termination. In the event of any such termination, (a) Account Holder will be entitled to a refund of prepaid subscription fees for the then-current Term if, and only if, notice of termination is given within 30 days after the start of the then-current Term (and no refund for prepaid fees shall be given if notice of termination is given more than 30 days after the start of the then-current Term); and (b) UserVoice will destroy all Account Holder Data in its possession after giving Account Holder a reasonable opportunity to download such data.
Intellectual Property Ownership and Licenses
UserVoice Ownership Rights. UserVoice and its licensors shall own and retain all right, title, and interest in and to the Service, UserVoice Platform, and APIs. UserVoice hereby grants to Account Holder a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, revocable, limited license to use the Service, the UserVoice Platform, and the API during the Term as expressly provided hereunder. Account Holder agrees not to copy, alter, modify, or create derivative works of the UserVoice Platform or API or otherwise use the Service in any way that violates the use restrictions contained in this Agreement. UserVoice does not grant to Account Holder any license, express or implied, to the intellectual property of UserVoice or its licensors.
Login and Hosting Restrictions. Account Holder acknowledges and agrees that Account Holder’s login information for the Service (e.g., username and password), including without limitation login information provided to individuals who Account Holder invites to be administrators or agents on Account Holder’s account, may be used by only one person, and use of a single login for the Service by multiple people is strictly prohibited. For the avoidance of doubt, Account Holder agrees that it shall not host the Service, including without limitation any UserVoice widget or track.js code, on its own or any third party servers. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the parties agree that if Account Holder violates the provisions of this Subsection (B), UserVoice shall have the right to terminate this Agreement immediately and without notice.
Account Holder Data. As between UserVoice and Account Holder, Account Holder shall retain all right, title and interest in and to all documents, messages, graphics, images, files, data and other information transmitted by Account Holder or its end users to UserVoice in connection with the Service, including any ideas or inventions contained therein (collectively, the “Account Holder Data”), provided, however, that Account Holder hereby grants to UserVoice a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to use during the Term the Account Holder Data solely for the purposes of fulfilling its obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, “Account Holder Data” does not include non-identifiable aggregate data compiled by UserVoice for purposes of improving, maintaining, and/or optimizing the Service.
Account Holder Logos and Designs. Account Holder shall retain all right, title and interest in and to all of Account Holder’s logos, promotional graphics and related marketing designs (collectively, the “Account Holder Art”); provided, however, that Account Holder hereby grants to UserVoice a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, fully sublicenseable, non-exclusive license to use the Account Holder Art, as well as Account Holder’s corporate and/or trade name for purposes of marketing UserVoice’s products and services to third parties, subject to Account Holder’s right in each instance to approve the manner and form of such use (which approval shall be in writing and shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
UserVoice respects the intellectual property of others. It may, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who UserVoice, in its determination, believes have repeatedly infringed others' rights. If Account Holder or any of its end users believes that its work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or its intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide the following information to UserVoice’s copyright agent via email to email@example.com or by mail to UserVoice, Inc., Attn: Copyright Agent, 121 2nd Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105:

UserVoice reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Service or to modify these Terms of Service, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms of Service, we will post the modification on our website or provide you with notice of the modification; provided, however, that unless otherwise mutually agreed by UserVoice and Account Holder in writing, no such modification, discontinuation or termination shall be effective until Account Holder’s next Renewal Date. We will also update the “Last Updated Date” at the top of these Terms of Service or on the Site. By renewing your subscription and continuing to access or use the Service after we have posted a modification to these Terms of Service or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms of Service. If the modified Terms of Service are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using all the Service. Neither party shall assign any of its rights, obligations or licenses hereunder without the prior written consent of the other party; provided, however, that either party may assign this Agreement and its rights and obligations hereunder to a successor of such party by way of merger, consolidation or acquisition of all or substantially all of the assets or business of such assigning party so long as such successor shall agree to be bound by all of the terms and provisions hereof. UserVoice and Account Holder are independent contractors, and neither UserVoice nor Account Holder is an agent, representative, employer, employee, or partner of the other. UserVoice and Account Holder shall each have sole responsibility for all acts and omissions of their respective personnel. This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between UserVoice and Account Holder. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law. Any notices under this Agreement shall be sent to UserVoice by electronic mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or nationally recognized express delivery service at 121 2nd Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, and such notice shall be deemed given upon receipt. The waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default, and will not act to amend or negate the rights of the waiving party. If any provision contained in this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable in any respect, then such provision will be severed and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
