PLEASE READ THIS END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (THIS “EULA”), WHICH CONSTITUTES A BINDING AND EXECUTED WRITTEN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE COMPANY OF WHICH YOU ARE A DULY AUTHORIZED EMPLOYEE OR AGENT AS THE PARTY ACCESSING THE SOFTWARE (“SUBSCRIBER”) AND QUANTUM METRIC, LLC. (“QUANTUM METRIC”).
These terms represent the agreement (“Agreement”) that governs the use of Quantum Metric Software from Quantum Metric, LLC (“Quantum Metric”) by the subscriber entity identified below.
For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “Confidential Information” shall mean all information and documentation of a party that: (a) has been marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning, at the time of disclosure by such party; (b) if disclosed orally or not marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning, was subsequently summarized in writing by the disclosing party and marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning; and, (c) should reasonably be recognized as confidential information of the disclosing party due the nature of the information. The term “Confidential Information” does not include any information or documentation that was: (a) already in the possession of the receiving party without an obligation of confidentiality; (b) developed independently by the receiving party, as demonstrated by the receiving party, without violating use or reference of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information; (c) obtained from a source other than the disclosing party without an obligation of confidentiality; (d) publicly available when received, or thereafter became publicly available (other than through any unauthorized disclosure by the receiving party) or (e) disclosed under operation of law, except that recipient will disclose only such information as is legally required and will use reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment for any Confidential Information that is so disclosed and will provide the disclosing party notice of such possible disclosure prior to disclosure in order to give the disclosing party an opportunity to contest such disclosure. For purposes of this Agreement Subscriber Data shall be deemed to be Confidential Information.
The parties agree to hold all Confidential Information in strict confidence and not to disclose such Confidential Information to third parties other than Affiliates, employees, agents, consultants or subcontractors of a party who have a need to know in connection with this Agreement or to use such Confidential Information for any purposes whatsoever other than the performance of this Agreement. The parties agree to advise and require their respective employees, agents, and Subcontractors of their obligations to keep all Confidential Information confidential.
Each party shall advise the other party immediately in the event either party learns or has reason to believe that any person who has had access to Confidential Information has violated or intends to violate the terms of this Agreement and each party will cooperate with the other party in seeking injunctive or other equitable relief against any such person.
Each party acknowledges that breach of its obligation of confidentiality may give rise to irreparable injury to the other party, which damage may be inadequately compensable in the form of monetary damages. Accordingly, a party may seek and obtain injunctive relief against the breach or threatened breach of the foregoing undertakings.
Upon termination of this Agreement, in whole or in part, each party shall, within thirty (30) calendar days from the date of termination, return or destroy all Confidential Information received from the other party, or created or received by a party on behalf of the other party, which are in such party’s possession.
The provisions of this Section 2 shall survive termination of the Agreement for a period of five years except that (i) any trade secrets (including, but not limited to source codes, technology, algorithms, and protocols) shall be deemed and treated as Confidential Information for as long as such information continues to be protectable as trade secret information under applicable law; and (ii) Subscriber Data shall continue be treated as Confidential Information indefinitely.
"Subscriber Data" means the data concerning the characteristics and activities of visitors on Supported Webpages that is collected by Subscriber and transferred to Quantum Metric for the purpose of providing the Services.
Subject to the terms of the Agreement, Quantum Metric is provided a limited license to Subscriber Data for the purpose of providing the Services, including a license to collect, process, store, and display Subscriber Data only to the extent necessary in providing the Services. Quantum Metric shall: (a) keep and maintain Subscriber Data in strict confidence, using such degree of care as is appropriate and consistent with its obligations as further described in this Agreement; (b) use and disclose Subscriber Data solely for the purpose of providing the Services; and, (c) not use, sell, rent, transfer, distribute, or otherwise disclose or make available Subscriber Data for the benefit of anyone other than Subscriber without Subscriber’s prior written consent.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Quantum Metric may use certain Aggregated Data in order to perform web surfing analysis and statistical reports and for auditing, research and analysis to operate and improve Quantum Metric technologies and services. "Aggregated Data means aggregated statistical information and data that is not identifiable to any person or entity. In no event whatsoever will Quantum Metric disclose to any third party any Aggregated Data that reveals, or discloses Confidential Information, or the identity of the Subscriber.
Subscriber Data is and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Subscriber and all right, title, and interest in the same is reserved by Subscriber.
Subscriber shall notify Quantum Metric immediately if it becomes aware of any unauthorized use of any Subscriber password or Subscriber’s account or any other breach of security or misuse of the Services by its employees, contractors and other users that Subscriber allows to access the Services. Subscriber is responsible for use of the Services by any and all employees, contractors or other users that it allows to access the Services.
We take reasonable steps to protect the data we collect from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We do this by implementing industry standard security procedures for storing and accessing information. However, you should be aware that we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your information that they collect from our site.
If you contact us by e-mail, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. An unaffiliated third party could view information you send by these methods in transit. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we will seek to notify you of that development. If notification is appropriate, we shall endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification. If you would prefer us to use another method to notify you in this situation, please contact us with the alternative contact information you would like us to use.
Without limiting Quantum Metric’s obligation of confidentiality as further described herein, Quantum Metric shall maintain a data privacy and information security program, including physical, technical, administrative, and organizational safeguards, that is designed to: (a) protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of the Subscriber Data; (b) protect against unauthorized disclosure, access to, or use of the Subscriber Data; (c) ensure the proper disposal of Subscriber Data; and, (d) ensure that all employees, agents, and Subcontractors, if any, comply with all of the foregoing. Quantum Metric agrees to use Subscriber Data only as instructed by Subscriber pursuant to this Agreement.
Quantum Metric’s SaaS platform (servers, infrastructure and storage) for the Services is hosted in Google Compute Engine, one of the largest and most advanced computer networks. Google Compute’s data center provider is and will remain SOC2, SSAE 16 & ISAE 3402 compliant, meaning it has been fully independently audited to verify the validity and functionality of its control activities and processes. Data is always encrypted on disk and in transit, and will remain encrypted backed up nightly, stored redundantly and will be restored rapidly in case of failure.
Access to Quantum Metric’s SaaS platform infrastructure and data for the Services is and will remain secured by multiple authentication challenges including RSA and DSA key pairs, passwords, and network access control lists. Infrastructure and data access is and will remain restricted to Quantum Metric employees and contractors, all of whom are under strict confidentiality agreements. System and Network activity for the Services are and will remain actively monitored by a team of engineers 24/7. Failed authentication attempts are audited and engineers will be paged immediately so that any possible intrusion or threat can be investigated promptly. Standard firewall policies are and will remain deployed to block all access except to ports required for Quantum Metric’s SaaS platform and Agent communication.
Quantum Metric agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Subscriber from and against any and all damages, losses, expenses, and fines (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses) ("Damages") awarded against Subscriber by a court of competent jurisdiction or otherwise agreed in a settlement in connection with a claim by a third party ("Claim") that the Software Service infringes any United States or foreign patent, copyright, trade secret, trademark, or other proprietary right.
Subscriber agrees to indemnify Quantum Metric, at Subscriber’s expense, against any and all third-party claims, actions, proceedings, and suits brought against Quantum Metric or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents or affiliates, and all related liabilities, damages, settlements, penalties, fines, costs or expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable and documented outside attorneys' fees and court costs) incurred by Quantum Metric, or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents or affiliates, arising out of or relating to (a) Subscriber’s use of the Product and/or the Services contrary to the terms of this Agreement and/or in violation of any applicable laws and/or regulations; and/or (b) Subscriber's negligence or willful misconduct.

If the Indemnifying Party elects to defend the action the Indemnifying Party will be obligated to defend the claim, at its own expense, and by counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party.
