Skopos may also continue to retain and use any User Content deleted from your account and any User Content associated with your account after termination or deactivation, for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above.

Subscriber shall not (i) provide access to the Data Service to unauthorized third parties, (ii) publicly publish, copy (except for internal use), duplicate or replicate the Data Service, (iii) scrape any Data, content or intellectual property, or otherwise trespass or interfere with Skopos’ Data Service or systems; or (iv) sublicense, distribute or transfer the Data Service or underlying Data except as otherwise expressly permitted herein.
Skopos shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Data Service to Subscriber on an ongoing basis. However, there will be occasions when the Data Service may be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and repairs, or as a result of failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond Skopos's control. Skopos shall take reasonable steps to minimize such disruption, to the extent it is within Skopos's reasonable control. Under no circumstances shall Skopos be liable to Subscriber for any interruptions, outages, or other system failures that are beyond Skopos's control. Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that Skopos obtains the data for the Data Service from third parties, and that such sources may become temporarily or permanently unavailable. If such unavailability materially affects Skopos's ability to provide the Data Service in whole or in part for more than ten consecutive days, Subscriber shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement upon written notice to Skopos and receive a pro rata refund of the last subscription fee paid.
2. FREE/PAID ACCESS
2.1. Free/Trial Access. Skopos retains sole discretion over whether to grant or deny free access to any of the Services, or to grant any request for a free trial of any of the Services. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to obligate Skopos to grant or continue free access to any of the Services. If you have been granted a free trial of certain features and/or content within the Services, your access to those features and/or content shall terminate at the end of the trial period, or at any earlier or later date as determined by Skopos.

If you upgrade your free or trial access by making a purchase of a monthly subscription, (i) you shall pay for the relevant monthly plan upfront; (ii) monthly fees paid are nonrefundable; (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant 1-month subscription term. If paying by credit card, you will provide Skopos with valid and updated credit card information and you authorize Skopos to charge such credit card for your initial monthly subscription and any renewal subscriptions. If you are accessing the Skopos Services and have not made a different arrangement with Skopos, you will be treated as a Monthly Paid Subscriber.
IMPORTANT: Your subscription will renew automatically for additional one-month periods unless you contact Skopos and cancel or change your subscription before your card is charged for the next month’s access.
2.3. Other Paid Subscriptions. Skopos offers subscriptions to individuals and other entities for terms longer than monthly (“Long Term Subscription”). If you upgrade your free or trial access by making a purchase of a Long Term Subscription, your Subscription Agreement will state the term, discount, payment periods, up front payment, and penalty payment for early cancellation, all of which are incorporated into these Terms. If paying by credit card, you will provide Skopos with valid and updated credit card information and you authorize Skopos to charge such credit card for your initial monthly subscription and any renewal subscriptions.
IMPORTANT: Your Long Term Subscription will renew automatically for additional terms of equal length to the original Long Term Subscription period unless you contact Skopos and cancel or change your subscription before your card is charged for the next terms’ access.
2.4. Fees and Payment Terms. You will pay the subscription fees (“Fees”) in the amount(s) indicated on the Subscription Agreement. The Fees do not include any sales taxes or other applicable taxes that may be imposed by any taxing authority in any jurisdiction in connection with the subscription (“Taxes”), and Subscriber shall be responsible for all such Taxes. Subscriber’s payment(s) of Fees and applicable Taxes shall be due within 30 days after the date of Skopos's invoice(s), or such other period as may be stated on the Subscription Agreement. Late payments may accrue interest at a monthly rate of 1% of the overdue balance. If you are receiving Services on a paid basis without a Subscription Agreement, you will pay the then applicable standard monthly rate charged by Skopos.
3. TERM AND TERMINATION
3.1. Term of Agreement. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect for the duration of your free access to Skopos or for the duration of any active subscription term (initial and renewal terms) unless this Agreement is terminated earlier pursuant to this Agreement.

You may terminate this Agreement (a) immediately upon giving written notice of termination after receiving notice of any amendment (as permitted under section 6.7) which contains new terms that materially alter the terms of this Agreement and are unacceptable to you; (b) upon prior written notice to Skopos if Skopos is in material breach of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 60 days of receipt of such written notice.
3.3. Termination for convenience. Provision 3.2 does not limit Skopos’s right to suspend or terminate your access to the Services for any reason as set forth in this Agreement. Skopos may terminate this agreement for any reason upon written notice to you.

8.4. Governing Law and Exclusive Jurisdiction. You agree that: (i) the Services shall be deemed solely based in New York; and (ii) the Services shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in New York City, New York for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that New York City, New York is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
8.5 Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM SKOPOS. For any dispute with Skopos, you agree to first contact us at and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Skopos has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, "Claims"), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in New York City, New York, unless you and Skopos agree otherwise. If you are using the Services for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys' fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Services for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney's fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Skopos from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
8.6. Class action/jury trial waiver. With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the services for personal, commercial or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties' individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Skopos are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
8.7. Waiver. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of that right.
8.8. The Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. Skopos may, in limited circumstances, enter into a specific agreement with a particular user of the Skopos Services that modifies some or all of the provisions of this Agreement. Provided that such specific agreement makes reference to this Section 6.8, it will be effective within the scope of its express terms, and may modify or supersede this Agreement, but all terms of this Agreement not expressly modified by, or in conflict with, such specific agreement will remain in full force and effect. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect. Neither this Agreement nor any part or portion hereof may be assigned, sublicensed, or otherwise transferred by you without Skopos’s prior written consent.
8.9. We reserve the right to revise these Terms without notice to you. If the revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you via posting to our website or e-mail to the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. The Services are operated and provided by Skopos Labs, Inc.
