DEFINITIONS

 

CONTRACT: This document is considered to consist of the “T&Cs” described here.

BLUEKNOW “SERVICES”: That BLUEKNOW specialises in the provision of “Services” falling within its main activity, consisting of a company dedicated to consulting, analysis, development, and marketing of solutions and software “Services” in the digital business environment that, likewise, is a holder of the rights of intellectual property over several software solutions, consisting of a SaaS platform of technological “Services” that, through the optimisation of digital experiences, provides its users’ online businesses with increased sales (hereinafter, the “Service”). BLUEKNOW has the knowledge, equipment, material and, where appropriate, the personnel needed to provide this type of “Services”.

SUBSCRIPTION LICENCE: It is the non-exclusive right to use the “Service”/”Services” of BLUEKNOW for a validity period defined through a subscription to one or more “Services”, provided that the subscription is valid and in a manner consistent with these conditions and related documentation.

END CUSTOMER OR CUSTOMER: It is any entity, that has subscribed to the “Services” of a BLUEKNOW solution, and that for the accomplishment of these “Services”, has obtained the passwords to the control panel, where the commercial data of its digital business and that of its web users are hosted. It is the sole responsibility of the “End Customer” to comply with the LOPD (Law on Protection of Data) and the LSSICE (Law on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce) in its portal.

WEB USER: It is any person browsing the portal of the “Final Client”, who is permitted by previous authorisation of the latter, as established in the LOPD and the LSSICE, to access and collect data from the latter for commercial use.

DASHBOARD SUBSCRIPTION:  Use of the “Service(s)” by the “End Customer” will entail the latter’s subscription to and acceptance of the “T & C” that are published on this part of the web, which automatically means the “End Customer” will receive a password, via email that will allow it to access its Dashboard.

SUBSCRIPTION ACCESS KEY: It consists of the authorised use under a subscription licence of BLUEKNOW’s “SaaS “Services”” which, through a Username and an Access Key, allows the “End Customer” to use and access the “Services” via the Dashboard.

SERVICE ACTIVATION DATE: Is when BLUEKNOW begins to provide the “Services”, agreed with the “End Customer”.

DASHBOARD OR CONTROL PANEL: It is the interface, which allows the different “Services” contracted by the “End Customer” to be managed, allowing the information and Key Business Indicators to be exploited by the “End Customer”.

COOKIES: Any type of file that is downloaded to the local computer of an END USER in order to store data that can be updated and retrieved by BLUEKNOW to optimise the user’s digital experience.

SOFTWARE: this refers to BLUEKNOW Software as a Service (SaaS) that is used by a WEB USER through their browser when they visit the website of the “End Customer”. BLUEKNOW SaaS does not require the downloading of any software, but it does require an initial implementation on the website of the “End Customer” to be able to collect data on WEBSITE USERS and thereby optimise the digital experience.

 

CLAUSES

 

1. – THE SUBJECT OF THE CONTRACT

1.1 These T&Cs of Use govern the provision of a service under which BLUEKNOW makes a commercial tool (hereinafter the “Tool”) available to the “End Customer”, through which cookies are integrated into the website operated by the “Final Customer” (hereinafter, the “Website”) that allow the monitoring and analysis of the behaviour of its WEBSITE USERS.

In addition, and by installing a second cookie on the users’ terminals (hereinafter, the “BLUEKNOW Cookie”), the Tool allows BLUEKNOW to obtain information on users’ browsing on the different Websites operated by the “End Customer”, to unify this and to issue an overall report on the behaviour of users (hereinafter, the “Services”).

1.2 The BLUEKNOW Platform is an instrument reserved for professional users and the “End Customer” undertakes to use it exclusively in relation to their own professional activity and in any case for requirements relating to the same, so that this Contract is not subject to the regulation of Consumer Contracts.

1.3 The “End Customer” understands and agrees that BLUEKNOW provides a product on the basis of “Software as a Service” or “SaaS”, as indicated in the section on definitions.

1.4 Subscription or registration as an “End Customer”, and the use of the “Services” provided by this portal implies the full and unreserved acceptance of these T&Cs of Use or those that, if appropriate, replace them and are in force at the time in accordance with the provisions set out in condition 12, which shall apply without prejudice to any special or particular conditions or agreements that may be established between the Parties, if they deem it appropriate. The Software is licensed under a subscription license, not sold.

1.5 Under this Contract, the “End Customer” has not purchased the right or license to use the “Services”, including the BLUEKNOW “Services” and the “Services” Environment, which exceed the scope and/or duration of the contracted “Services”. Once the subscription time has expired, the right of access to and use of BLUEKNOW Services will terminate.

1.6 The lack of acceptance of these T & C of Use, prevents the use of the Tool, and therefore, access to the “Services”.

2.- TERM OF THE CONTRACT

2.1 The “Services” (and the use of the Software as a service) are of non-exclusive and non-transferable temporary use in accordance with these T&Cs of Use, beginning with the acceptance by the “End Customer” of these T&Cs of Use by means of their access and registration in the Portal, with a password and the payment by the “End Customer” of the subscription. In the absence of agreement between the parties, the period will be decided upon by the document entitled “Terms and Conditions” which must be signed by the “End Customer”. If a contract does exist, the provisions therein will be applicable.

2.2 These T&Cs are valid for the contracted “Service(s)” which accompanies/accompany them. These T&Cs can also be referenced for any extension of new Services in addition to the “Services” initially contracted, and/or for any renewal of the subscription period.

2.3 In the event that BLUEKNOW has developed a made-to-measure job, for the implementation of “Services”, the “END CUSTOMER” undertakes to maintain this modification, during a period of 1 year from the acceptance of the extension of the project.

3.-OBLIGATIONS OF THE END CUSTOMER

3.1 The “End Customer” assumes responsibility for accessing the Tool and for its correct use in accordance with these T&Cs, and must verify that its computer equipment is compatible with the requirements of the Service.

3.2 The minimum essential equipment needed by the “End Customer” to access the service is the following: • A computer with an Internet connection. • Web browsers which are compatible with the Tool.

3.3 To allow access to the tool, the “End Customer” needs to be registered in BLUEKNOW’s Portal and then the system will automatically send them a password that will allow the authentication of the “End Customer”. The “End Customer” must keep under their sole responsibility the identifier, the password or the access code in the most strict and absolute confidentiality, and shall be solely responsible for the consequences that may result from the communication thereof to third parties, without prejudice to BLUEKNOW’s right of recovery from any damage that may arise as a result of such action.

3.4 The “End Customer” is committed to respecting the legislation in force during the use of the “Services”, including, without limitation, the respect for the ownership of the Intellectual Property that corresponds to BLUEKNOW, being aware that any reproduction, distribution, communication, transformation and/or disclosure to third parties of any content of the latter, without having the corresponding rights, constitutes a violation of intellectual property legislation.

3.5 The “End Customer” must comply with the obligations imposed by the data protection law (Organic Law 15/1999 of 13 December on the Protection of Personal Data, and Royal Decree 1720/2007, of 21 December, approving the Regulation on the development of Organic Law 15/1999), as well as Law 34/2002, of 11 July, on Information Society and Electronic Commerce “Services”, including but not limited to those related to the use of cookies on its Website.

3.6 Specifically, and in order to adapt its Website to the use of the “End Customer” Cookie, derived from the use of the Tool, the End Customer must implement a system to: i. Provide the user with clear and comprehensive information in a direct and visible way on the use of the Tool -and the corresponding cookie- on the Website by the “End Customer”, as well as its purpose. ii. Obtain the consent of the website user for the use of the same by the “End Customer” prior to its use. In the event that such consent is not obtained, neither should the use of the Tool or the subsequent installation of cookies take place. iii. Enable an accessible and permanent procedure that allows WEBSITE USERS to revoke their consent.

3.7 In addition, and without prejudice to the foregoing, the “End Customer” must obtain the informed consent of WEBSITE USERS for the installation on their terminals of the BLUEKNOW Cookie that enables it to track users’ behaviour on different Websites operated by the “End Customer”, allowing the installation of the BLUEKNOW Cookie only once such consent has been obtained. To do this, the “End Customer” must clearly, fully, directly and visibly inform users about the use on the Website by BLUEKNOW of said cookie, with the goal of analysing their behaviour. In addition, the “End Customer” should enable an accessible and permanent procedure that allows website users to revoke such consent.

3.8 The “End Customer” is responsible for complying with the LOPD and LSSICE provisions regarding requests for authorisation to use the personal data of its web users, as well as the possible use of the same for advertising purposes. It will also inform you about the use by BLUEKNOW of the data collected during its navigation, so that BLUEKNOW can start up the contracted “Services”.

3.9 In the event of the revocation of consent on the part of a WEB USER regarding the use of the BLUEKNOW Cookie referred to in the previous section, the “End Customer” shall immediately bring such circumstances to the attention of BLUEKNOW.

3.10 Pay BLUEKNOW the amount stipulated in terms of price. In the event of non-payment by the “End Customer” of some of the amounts owed to BLUEKNOW as compensation for the Service, BLUENOW reserves the right to temporarily suspend the same.

After THIRTY (30) days from the suspension of the Service for this reason without the “End Customer” having satisfied the amounts owed, BLUEKNOW will be able to suspend the service definitively, terminating the contract with the “End Customer” for causes attributable to the same and reserving the exercise of all pertinent legal actions for the recovery of amounts owed.

3.11 The “End Customer” may not make the tool or materials derived from the “Services” available to third parties in any way for their use, unless such access is expressly permitted for the specific “Services” that the “End Customer” has acquired. The “End Customer” may not modify, prepare derivative works, disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer, reproduce, distribute, replicate or download any part of the «Services» (the foregoing prohibitions include, but are not limited to the reviewing of data structures or similar materials produced by BLUEKNOW “Services”), or to accessing or using the Services to develop or provide support, and/or to assist a third party in developing or supporting products or “Services”, which compete with those of BLUEKNOW. The “End Customer” may not perform or disseminate any of the following security tests in the “Services” Environment or associated infrastructure: network discovery, identifying ports and “Services”, vulnerability scanning, password decryption, remote access tests, or penetration test; and license, sell, lease and rent, transfer, assign, distribute, host, subcontract, permit its usage as a time-share or office of “Services” or otherwise commercially exploit or make available to third parties the “Services” of BLUEKNOW, the “Service” Environments or BLUEKNOW materials, except as expressly authorised under the terms of the respective order.

3.12 The implementation of BLUEKNOW’s “Services” is subject to and governed by the Technical Specifications of its website, provided by the “End Customer”. In the event the “End Customer” does not provide BLUEKNOW with the Technical Specifications defined at the time of contracting, BLUEKNOW shall not be liable for the partial or total impossibility of starting up due to technological incompatibility and will not refund the start-up cost due to non-compliance with this point.

3.13 The “End Customer” undertakes to keep the BLUEKNOW tool active as long as it is subscribed to it, in such a way that it cannot justify the non-payment of its subscription due to not being successful or not obtaining results as a consequence of the inactivity of the tool. If this happens, BLUEKNOW can detect it in the tool itself, so I would inform you reliably, that the tool is not functioning not because it is at fault, so that you proceed to reactivating it as soon as possible. If in the course of 7 days from the notification of this situation, the “End Customer” does not activate the tool, the contract will be resolved due to its breach by the “Final Customer”, and BLUEKNOW shall have the right to claim for the payment of all invoices pending payment, and also it will be able to apply for compensation for damages, which will be assessed paying attention to the median income obtained by BLUEKNOW from the “End Customer” during the last year of its contract.

4.- OBLIGATIONS OF BLUEKNOW

4.3 BLUEKNOW shall use reasonable technical means to provide a secure service environment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the “End Customer” declares it knows and accepts that the “Services” do not provide any identification or protection against viruses.

4.4 BLUEKNOW guarantees the access and availability of the Tool, except for specific maintenance reasons, fortuitous events, force majeure or causes that depend on third parties and/or those outside the control of BLUEKNOW.

Also, and in any case, such behaviour will not leave BLUEKNOW open to any judicial or extra-judicial claim being presented against it. The “End Customer” will pay all damages and costs, including reasonable lawyers’ fees, even if their costs and intervention were not mandatory, that are imposed on BLUEKNOW by the final Judgement or Award issued by a Court of competent jurisdiction, or agreed to in a settlement agreement, which are attributable to said claim.
