Navarik may update the Service’s content, features, user interface or other aspects from time to time in its sole discretion.
Licence. Navarik hereby grants Customer (and its Users, as applicable) a limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable licence (without the right to sub-license) to access and use the Service (including any Products to which the Customer separately subscribes) solely for the Business and in accordance with these Terms and any applicable Product Terms. Navarik reserves all rights not expressly granted under these Terms or any applicable Product Terms.
No Resale. The Customer will not resell access to the Service to third parties without Navarik’s prior written consent, provided that if the Customer is an organization or business entity then Customer’s Affiliates may access and use the Service as otherwise provided in these Terms.
Account. The Customer may access the Account through the username and password selected by the Customer during the Account creation process. Navarik reserves the right to remove or reclaim the username if Navarik believes it is appropriate to do so (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username, or if the username is offensive or otherwise objectionable). The Customer must keep the username and password confidential, and must not allow anyone other than its Affiliates and Users (if applicable) to access or use the Account. The Customer is solely responsible and liable for all activity conducted through the Account. The Customer must immediately notify Navarik upon becoming aware of or reasonably suspecting any security breach, including any loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of the Customer’s username or password.
User Accounts. If the Customer is an organization or business entity, Navarik may grant the Customer with system administration authority to assign to each of its Users a username and password. The Customer will make reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that each User keeps his or her or its username and password strictly confidential. The licence contained in section 4 will apply to each of the Users.
Customer Obligations. The Customer will ensure that it and its Users (as applicable):
access and use the Service only (i) for the Business activities; (ii) for lawful purposes; and (iii) in accordance with applicable laws and these Terms;

do not upload, transmit, distribute or otherwise publish on, to or through the Service any content that is defamatory, obscene, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, illegal, or otherwise objectionable, or which may constitute or encourage a criminal offence, violate the rights of any party or which may otherwise give rise to liability or violate any law;
do not use the Service for spamming, other advertising, other bulk message transmission or other similar activity that is objectionable to Navarik acting reasonably.
Regardless of the Customer’s efforts, the Customer acknowledges that Navarik will not be responsible for any harm caused in whole or part by any User’s failure to comply with the requirements in sub-sections (a) to (f) above.
User Activity. The Customer will be solely responsible for all activities conducted under its Users’ usernames (including the use of those usernames to upload or transmit anything that, if reproduced, published, transmitted or used, may be defamatory, threatening, abusive, obscene, pornographic, harmful or invasive of anyone’s privacy, may violate any law including but not limited to copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent, privacy or other laws, or may give rise to civil or other liability, but excluding any activities conducted by Navarik), and the Customer bears the sole risk of all such activities. Navarik agrees to notify the Customer if it becomes aware of any unauthorized activities being conducted under the Users’ usernames and to provide reasonable assistance, at Customer’s expense, to track and identify the source of any such unauthorized activities. For greater certainty, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that Navarik has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor the activities conducted under the Users’ usernames.
Security and Viruses. Navarik will take commercially reasonable steps to make the Service secure, and to ensure that the Service is free of Harmful Components. However:
The Customer acknowledges that due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, Navarik cannot guarantee that communications between you and Navarik or the Service or the Account will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and the Customer’s and its Users’ use of the Service demonstrates their assumption of this risk.
The Customer should install and maintain appropriate anti-virus and other protective software on the devices from which the Customer and its Users access and use the Service. Without limiting any other part of these Terms, Navarik disclaims all liability for any computer viruses or other harmful or destructive programs that the Customer or any User may download from the Service.

Interruptions and Errors. The Customer acknowledges that its access to and use of the Service might be interrupted and will not be free of errors.

The Customer acknowledges that the technical processing and transmission of electronic communications (including the transfer of information, text, signals, images, sounds or data of any nature transmitted in whole or part electronically) (the “Electronic Communications”) is fundamentally necessary to the use of the Service. The Customer expressly consents to Navarik’s transmission, receipt and storage of the Customer’s Electronic Communications, and the Customer acknowledges that the Customer’s Electronic Communications will involve transmission over the Internet and over various networks, over which Navarik has no control. The Customer further acknowledges that the availability of and access to the Service may be subject to limitations, delays and other problems inherent in the use of the Internet and Electronic Communications. Navarik is not responsible for any unavailability, delays, or data or message transmission failure in the Service to the extent attributable to such problems beyond its reasonable control.
The Customer acknowledges that security risks cannot be eliminated and that the Internet and other networks are not secure mediums. Subject to section 11 (Security and Viruses), Navarik is not responsible if the Customer’s Electronic Communications contain Harmful Components, and is not responsible if the Electronic Communications are lost, delayed, altered, intercepted, accessed, copied or stored without authorization during the transmission of any data whatsoever across networks outside of Navarik’s control, provided that Navarik promptly notifies the Customer of any such instances of which it becomes aware and, at the Customer’s expense, reasonably cooperates with the Customer in identifying the source of the problem and in rectifying the problem. For greater certainty, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that Navarik has no obligation to monitor the transmission of data across networks outside of Navarik’s control.

Persons Bound. These Terms will bind and benefit each of the parties including their respective lawful successors and permitted assigns.
