These Terms also govern the use of any applications, software, services, and other offerings made available through our platform (“Intellicheck Services”).
Subject to these Terms, Intellicheck will provide to Customer access to Intellicheck Services and third-party services via the Intellicheck Platform as identified on the Order Form signed by Customer and incorporated into these Terms (“Order Form”) or through the Intellicheck Platform User Interface (“PUI”). Intellicheck’s service level agreements for the Intellicheck Services and service level agreements for third party services are set forth in the PUI and are incorporated as part of these Terms. Any issues arising under the third-party service level agreements will relate solely to the applicable third-party service and are the responsibility of the third-party service provider.
The Intellicheck Platform provides users with the ability to analyze and authenticate components of identification cards and other government forms of identification containing magnetic stripe, barcode, and smart chip information, subject to any legal or governmental restrictions (“Permitted Purpose”). Conditioned upon Customer’s full compliance with these Terms and obtaining an active subscription or other registration, Customer may access and use the Intellicheck Platform and Intellicheck Services solely for the Permitted Purpose.
If Customer is an entity or organization and has a valid subscription or other registration with Intellicheck to use the Intellicheck Platform and Intellicheck Services, Customer may authorize employees to access and use the Intellicheck services as part of Customer’s subscription (“Employee User”). As noted below, certain provisions may not apply to an Employee User. Employee Users represent that they have the authority to enter into these Terms on behalf of their organization.
Included with the Intellicheck Platform are corrections, modifications, and enhancements (“Updates”). Intellicheck may incorporate the Updates or other changes to the Intellicheck Platform at any time and from time to time without prior notification to the Customer. Additional features to the Intellicheck Platform may be added by Intellicheck from time to time (“Additional Features”). Customer will have the option of accepting such Additional Features if such Additional Features involve additional fees or entering into a new agreement.

In the event of a conflict between the App Store Terms and these Terms and Conditions, the App Store Terms will govern Customer’s use of the Intellicheck Platform and Intellicheck Services only to the extent of the conflict.
4. User Restrictions
Customer may not (i) rent, lease, sell, subcontract, sublicense, lend, assign, otherwise transfer, copy, distribute, reproduce, use, publicly perform, display, electronically distribute, “timeshare,” make available over a network or allow access to the Intellicheck Platform; (ii) modify, adapt, alter, translate, prepare derivative works from (including translations, adaptations, arrangements, or any other alteration), decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to derive source code from any portion of the Intellicheck Platform; (iii) remove, obscure, or alter Intellicheck’s or any provider of third party services’ copyright notices, trademarks, or other proprietary rights notices or legends affixed to or contained within the Intellicheck Platform; (iv) make any attempt to unlock or bypass any initialization system or encryption technique within the Intellicheck Platform; (v) transmit viruses or any other malicious code to the Intellicheck Platform or overburden or interfere with the integrity or performance of the Intellicheck Platform; (vi) use the Intellicheck Platform for any purpose other than the scanning, parsing, analyzing, verifying, or authenticating of a governmentissued identification document or other identification document(s); (vii) except as expressly provided herein, provide, disclose, divulge, or make the Intellicheck Platform to, or permit use of the Intellicheck Platform by, any third party for any unlicensed use; or (viii) use or permit use of the Intellicheck Services for any purpose not authorized by law.
Any user of the Intellicheck Platform must register in order to access or use the Intellicheck Services. The number of authorized users, the duration of Customer’s use, and the availability of Intellicheck Services or functionality and features within the Intellicheck Platform are subject to the type of registration Customer has made or subscription Customer purchases and Customer’s payment of applicable subscription fees.
If Customer is accessing or using the Intellicheck Platform as an Employee User, Customer agrees and acknowledges that Customer’s ability to access and use the Intellicheck Platform and the availability of Intellicheck Services and features or functionalities in the Intellicheck Platform are subject to the type of registration or subscription selected by that entity or organization and both their compliance and Customer’s compliance with these Terms.
Customer is entirely responsible for the security and confidentiality of their Account and password (including an Employee User’s Accounts if Customer is an entity or organization). Further, Customer is entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under their Account, even where their username, password, and other access information or codes are used by someone else (including an Employer User’s Accounts if Customer is an entity or organization).
Customer agrees to immediately notify Intellicheck of any unauthorized use of their Account or any other breach of security of which Customer becomes aware of or suspect (including an Employer User’s Account if Customer is an entity or organization). Customer is responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for their situation and intended use of the Intellicheck Platform. Please note that anyone able to provide Customer’s personally identifiable information will be able to access Customer’s Account, so Customer should take reasonable steps to protect their information.
7. Intellectual Property Rights

Intellicheck acknowledges, however, that Intellicheck has no proprietary interest or license in trade names, service marks, data, or information, supplied or input to the Intellicheck Platform by or on behalf of Customer except for the limited license hereby granted to use any such information and materials solely and as reasonably required to perform Intellicheck’s obligations under these Terms or enhance Intellicheck products and services. Customer may not use, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit, distribute, or modify any intellectual property that will infringe on Intellicheck’s Intellectual Property Rights. Intellicheck and its licensors retain full copyright ownership and protection in all material contained in or on the Intellicheck Platform and Intellicheck Services (including all digital images, software, HTML code and other code, or business methods) with the exception of third-party content. Intellicheck does not condone copyright infringement in connection with the Intellicheck Platform or Intellicheck Services and will remove allegedly infringing content if properly notified of the infringement.

8. Data Rights
Any content or information provided to Intellicheck by Customer that may be used to provide or improve the Intellicheck Services (“Customer Data”) is and will remain the property of Customer or its suppliers or licensors. Customer hereby grants Intellicheck a non-exclusive right and license to use and reproduce any content or information provided to Intellicheck by Customer in connection with performance of services for Customer and to enhance Intellicheck’s products and services. Customer is responsible for obtaining all necessary rights to the Customer Data. Nothing in these Terms restricts Intellicheck from collecting, using and analyzing general information and data from its customers (including Customer) for purposes of improving and enhancing the quality and nature of services offered by Intellicheck, or to market or publish general information and statistics, provided that Intellicheck does not specifically identify Customer or disclose any personally identifiable information in the course of collecting, using, analyzing, marketing or publishing such information or data.

10. Fair Credit Reporting Act
Customer acknowledges and agrees that Intellicheck does not assemble or evaluate any information whatsoever that will be collected, used, or is expected to be used in a consumer report. As such, the parties understand and believe that Intellicheck is not (i) a “consumer reporting agency” as defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. 1681 et seq., as amended (“FCRA”), and the Customer Data has not been collected by Intellicheck in whole or in part for the purpose of furnishing “consumer reports” as defined in the FCRA; or (ii) a furnisher of information to consumer reporting agencies as described in the FCRA.

12. Fees and Payments
a. Fees. Customer will pay the fees set forth in the Order Form (“Fees”). After the first year of the Initial Term (as defined in Section 13), Intellicheck may increase the Fees for the Intellicheck Services annually by the greater of: a) five percent (5%); or (b) the percentage rate of increase equal to the change in the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers as reported by the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. The pricing information provided in the Order Form or otherwise provided to Customer by Intellicheck is Intellicheck’s confidential information.
b. Payments. Customer will be invoiced for the amounts and prices set forth in the Order Form. Payments to Intellicheck will be made in United States dollars to the address provided by Intellicheck to Customer. All payments are due upon receipt of the invoice. If Customer fails to pay the recurring subscription fee required to maintain their selected type of subscription, Customer will not be permitted to further use the Intellicheck Platform and Customer will lose access to Intellicheck Services. All payment obligations are non-cancellable and all amounts paid are non-refundable, except for amounts paid in error that are not actually due under the applicable Order Form.
c. Past-Due Payments. Past due payments will be subject to a late payment charge calculated at an annual rate of five percentage points (5%) over the prime rate (as provided by the U.S. Federal Reserve) during delinquency. If the amount of such charge exceeds the maximum permitted by law, such charge will be reduced to such maximum. If Intellicheck incurs any fees or expenses for collection of monies owed, Customer will be responsible for reimbursing Intellicheck for any such expenses. In any case such payment is not paid in full when due, in addition to any other remedy otherwise available to Intellicheck, Intellicheck may impose interest on overdue Fees and other charges at the rate of 1.5% per month (or, if less, the maximum amount permitted by law) until Customer is current on all payments. If payment is not received within 30 days after an invoice is sent to Customer by Intellicheck, Intellicheck reserves the right to terminate access to the Intellicheck Services, at its sole discretion, until payment is satisfied. In the event the account becomes delinquent and satisfactory arrangements have not been made for payment, Customer agrees to pay all collections costs and reasonable attorney fees.
d. Taxes. Customer will bear all taxes, duties, levies and similar charges (and any related interest and penalties), however designated, imposed as a result of the existence or operation of these Terms. Fees due to Intellicheck under these Terms do not include U.S. or foreign sales and use taxes. If Intellicheck is required by applicable law to collect and remit such taxes based on the Intellicheck Services provided to Customer under these Terms, Intellicheck will, to the extent reasonably feasible, include such taxes on the invoice to Customer in accordance with these Terms. Notwithstanding the exclusion of any U.S. or foreign sales and use tax from any invoice, Customer is solely responsible for all U.S. and foreign sales and use taxes imposed on the Intellicheck Services provided to Customer under these Terms. Customer shall indemnify Intellicheck for any claims against Intellicheck for all such taxes. Customer will not be responsible for or pay any penalties or interest imposed with respect to taxes Intellicheck collects from Customer but fails to properly calculate or remit, but will be responsible for the amount of any such taxes. Intellicheck will be responsible for all taxes based upon its net income.
13. Term and Termination
a. Term. These Terms will commence the earlier of the date the Customer, or Employee User, first registers for or otherwise accesses or uses the Intellicheck Platform, or as otherwise specified in an order form, and will remain in full force and effect for an initial period of two (2) years (unless specified otherwise in an order form) or until terminated in accordance with this Section 13 (“Initial Term”). Thereafter, this Agreement will automatically renew for one successive year (“Renewal Term”) unless either party provides thirty (30) days written notice of termination prior to the end of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, or until terminated in accordance with this Section 13.

Intellicheck will have no obligation to continue to store or permit Customer to retrieve any data, content, information, or any other materials that the Customer stores on the Intellicheck Platform following any termination of these Terms. Termination under this section does not excuse any of Customer’s obligations to pay any Fees specified in Section 12.
d. Survival. The provisions regarding fees and payment obligations, licensing, feedback and market, terms and termination, disclaimer of warranties, limitations of liability, indemnification, and jurisdiction and applicable law will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms for any reason.

14. Accurate Records
Customer will keep full, clear, and accurate records with respect to their use of the Intellicheck Platform and will furnish any information which Intellicheck may reasonably prescribe from time to time to enable Intellicheck to ascertain whether Customer is in full compliance with these Terms. Customer will retain such records for at least five (5) years. Intellicheck and its agents will have the right to make examinations, during normal business hours, of all records and accounts bearing upon the amounts of fees payable to it under these Terms. Prompt adjustment will be made by the proper party to compensate for any errors or omissions disclosed by any such examination. The cost of any examination will be paid for by Intellicheck unless the examination reveals an underpayment by Customer.

Customer grants to Intellicheck a nonexclusive royalty-free right and license to use Customer’s name and logos to identify Customer as an Intellicheck customer on any physical or digital marketing materials, commercial presentations and on the Intellicheck website. This license will survive the termination of these Terms and does not apply to Employee Users.

During the Term of this agreement, Intellicheck agrees to implement reasonable security measures to protect the Customer Data and will, at a minimum, utilize industry standard security procedures.
Customer and Intellicheck, each agree that at all times during the Term of this agreement, each will be in compliance with all prevailing local, state, or national laws in reference to general data protection and data privacy including those laws, policies and regulations dealing with the protection of personally identifiable information.

Note that the warranty disclaimers and limitation of liability set forth in Sections 22 and 23 apply to any such claims.
If a third party claims that any portion of the Intellicheck Platform or Intellicheck Services directly infringe or misappropriate any U.S. Intellectual Property Rights, Intellicheck will (as long as Customer is not in default under these Terms or any other agreement with Intellicheck) defend Customer against such claim at Intellicheck’s expense and pay all damages that a court finally awards, provided that Customer promptly notifies Intellicheck in writing of the claim, allows Intellicheck to control response to the claim, and cooperates with Intellicheck in the defense of a claim and any related settlement negotiations. If such a claim is made or appears possible, Intellicheck may, at its option, secure for Customer the right to continue to use the affected portion of the Intellicheck Platform or Intellicheck Services, modify or replace the affected portion of the Intellicheck Platform or Intellicheck Services so that it is non- infringing, or, if neither of the foregoing options is reasonable in Intellicheck’s judgment, require Customer to forego or return the affected portions of the Intellicheck Platform in its possession (if any) or cease use of the affected portions of the Intellicheck Services for a credit equal to the portion of previously paid fees allocable to the remaining term of the affected Intellicheck Platform or Intellicheck Services. However, Intellicheck has no obligation for any claim based on the combination, operation, or use of the Intellicheck Platform with any product, data or apparatus not provided by Intellicheck or the unauthorized or non-compliant use of the Intellicheck Platform.
