Agreement applies to our data management solutions products (including but not
limited to “easyReportPRO”), and our websites (including
but not limited to www.worldtide.com and www.easyreportpro.com), and all other WorldTide products and services,
including (but not limited to) user accounts, customer and technical support, report

1.4. We may
change this Agreement in our discretion, including as needed to reflect changes
in our Services or in response to any change in applicable laws. If we do, we
will strive to make the updated version of the Agreement available for review online
before it takes effect, but circumstances may require that it become immediately
binding upon you. For more information about this Agreement, or any changes
hereto, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not agree to this
Agreement (as may be updated from time to time) then you shall immediately cease
using the Services.
1.5. To the
extent that you enter into a separate written contract with WorldTide to
provide you with access to certain WorldTide Services (such as a System
Contract and License Agreement), the terms of such separate contract shall
supersede those set forth in this Agreement to the extent that they conflict. Additionally,
the terms of any applicable System Contract and License Agreement say
otherwise, all fees paid to WorldTide shall be non-refundable.
Services, which remain owned by WorldTide, are licensed to you, not sold. We grant
to you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and
non-assignable license to display, view, and use the WorldTide Services on no
more than one (1) device at a time (meaning one (1) concurrent login per
account), unless the terms of any applicable System Contract and License
Agreement permit more. This license shall not be sold, lent, given, assigned,
sub-licensed or otherwise transferred by you to any third party without
WorldTide’s prior express written permission in each instance.
2.2. To enjoy
all of the WorldTide Services you may be required to create one or more
accounts, together with at least one user profile to be used in connection with
such account, and you may be required to enter into a separate written
agreement (such as a System Contract and License Agreement). You are
responsible for protecting your account login credentials, which must remain
private and secure. Similarly, you are solely responsible for implementing
reasonable safeguards that ensure that everyone entrusted with a user profile created
in connection with your account takes reasonable steps to protect the security
and integrity of their user profile login credentials. WorldTide reserves the
right, to be determined in our sole discretion, to disable any account or user
profile if we suspect that such account or user profile has breached this
Agreement or other applicable rules.

TO THE SERVICES
above, you may be required to enter into additional agreements (such as the
System Contract and License Agreement) before you can enjoy full access to the
Services. The Services are offered on an ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ basis.
Because the Services are offered via the Internet, there may be outages or
downtime that are the result of factors that fall outside WorldTide’s control.
WorldTide shall not be responsible or liable for any outages or other periods
of inaccessibility of the Services.
By using the
Services, you agree that you (and every user profile associated with your
account, if any), agree to comply with the following rules (the “Rules”),
a violation of which could result in suspension or revocation (temporary or
permanent) from the Services:
Do not attempt to
sell, lease, rent, sublicense, copy, distribute, publish, or publicly display
the WorldTide Services, your account, or any of your rights under this
Agreement to any other party in any way not expressly authorized under this
Do not modify, recreate,
distribute, translate, reverse engineer, or attempt to obtain or use source
code of, decompile or disassemble the Services unless otherwise permitted under
Do not hack,
harm, harass, threaten, or misuse the Services or any users thereof.
deliberately or maliciously interrupt or interfere with the Services.
Do not interfere with
or otherwise intentionally disrupt WorldTide, the Services, or use the Services
to undertake any of the foregoing to any third party network software or
servers, including via tunneling, code injection or insertion, denial of
service, modifying or changing the Services.
Do not attempt to
access any restricted portion of the WorldTide servers that require credentials
that are not yours.
Except for using
data for its intended purpose, you shall not intercept, mine, harvest, gather
or otherwise collect data or information from the Services, including by
deploying any third party software.
You shall not use
the WorldTide name or its associated logos or trademarks for any commercial
purpose, unless otherwise permitted under applicable law.
Do not use the
Services to infringe upon any intellectual property rights or personal rights
(including but not limited to rights of privacy, likeness, or publicity). Any
content that you provide to WorldTide, such as images, photographs, text, and
any other material or information, shall be wholly your own original content
and it shall not infringe upon any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret.
You shall not post
or upload any files that contain any malicious code or viruses, including but
not limited to spyware, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, intentionally

You shall not use
the Services to perpetrate any racist, harassing, xenophobic, sexist,
homophobic, transphobic, discriminatory, abusive, defamatory, or otherwise
offensive or illegal behavior.
trial offers are limited to one per person, per participating WorldTide
product. If we have reason to believe that you are attempting to abuse this
rule (for example, by creating multiple spoof email accounts) then we may
revoke your access to the Services.
& USER SUBMITTED MATERIAL
5.1 The Services
may give you access to certain default reports into which you may input data. For
the avoidance of doubt, WorldTide shall not be the owner of any data that you
input into any such reports. WorldTide will automatically backup all data
entered into the Services daily as a precaution against system failure. Data
backups will be preserved for up to seven (7) calendars days and only be used
for full system recovery, not individual recovery requests. WorldTide shall not
be responsible for any failure of such backup system to function properly; all
losses (whether of data or revenues) resulting therefrom shall be your sole
5.2 Under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), personally identifiable information refers to information that is maintained in education records and includes both direct identifiers (e.g., a student’s full name or student ID number) and indirect identifiers (non-identifying personal information such as a birthday or mother’s maiden name which, when combined with other non-identifying personal information linked to the student, makes their identity readily ascertainable). Similarly, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) regards personally identifiable information as data relating directly or indirectly to an individual, from which the identity of the individual can be determined. Protected Health Information is such data in the possession of a HIPAA-covered entity which also relates to an individual’s past, present, or future health status. WorldTide is not a HIPAA or FERPA covered entity. WorldTide reasonably belies in good faith that the minimal quantum of personal information used in the Services (i.e., first name plus a gender) is insufficient to ascertain the identity of each data subject, however there may be instances where such data might identify the data subject. You shall be solely responsible for ensuring that all data input into the Services is not personally identifiable information under HIPAA or FERPA. If you believe that circumstances exist such that the collection of a first name and gender may be sufficient to reasonably identify the data subject (or otherwise qualify as Personally Identifiable Information under HIPAA or FERPA), then it is your sole responsibility to select the applicable CLIENT/CLIENTS button by the “first name” field, or to otherwise input a non-identifying moniker or placeholder reference in lieu of the applicable data subject’s first name.
5.3 The Services may also allow you to create your own customizable
report templates or otherwise share user-generated materials, including as ReportPRO
Collaborator (all user submitted templates and all other materials submitted by
any user to us with the intent that such material be viewed or used by others
may be collectively referred to as “User Submitted Material”). We
welcome you to share your new and creative report templates with us so that we
may make them available to other WorldTide customers. Similarly, if you decide
to use any User Submitted Material, you do so at your own risk. All User
Submitted Material submitted with the intent to be made available to others
shall only be made available in WorldTide’s sole discretion. Anyone who
submits User Submitted Material to WorldTide agrees that WorldTide may request
(or directly implement) various edits, grammatical or otherwise, before
accepting such material and further authorizes WorldTide to edit the User
Submitted Material as needed to ensure seamless integration into the Services.
Although WorldTide may make User Submitted Material available to its other
customers, WorldTide shall have no obligation to ensure that any User Submitted
Materials function as intended or are otherwise free of any harmful content. By
submitting, sharing, or otherwise posting User Submitted Material to WorldTide,
you give us a non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable, worldwide, sub-licensable,
royalty-free license to use, modify, reproduce, create derivative works from,
distribute, transmit, communicate, and publicly display/perform your User Submitted
Material. Notwithstanding the above, WorldTide shall not be responsible for
the content of any User Submitted Material and each user shall be solely liable
if materials they submit violate the rights of any third-party.
including (but not limited to) their visual elements, items, music, graphics,
computer code, user interface, look and feel, video, text, layout, databases,
data (other than data input by users into reports), templates, and all other
content and all intellectual property and other legal and exploitation rights
regarding them, are either owned by WorldTide or used under license. All rights
in the Services are reserved except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement.
WorldTide owns all right, title, and interest in and to the Services and all
intellectual property rights therein.
represents and warrants that: (i) we have the right to enter into this
Agreement and to grant the license to you for your use of the Services pursuant
to section 2 above; (ii) we will use reasonable care with respect to the
Services; and (iii) we will take reasonable steps to comply with applicable
laws under this Agreement.
represent and warrant to WorldTide that: (i) you have the full power, right,
and authority to enter into this Agreement and will follow fully its terms;
(ii) all User Submitted Material which is submitted to WorldTide via any user
profile associated with your Account does not infringe upon the Intellectual Property
Rights of any third party; (iii) you will not use or submit any User Submitted Material
that is unlawful, tortious, defamatory, obscene, invasive of the privacy of
another person, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful or racist.

liability limitations, but it shall apply to you if you are a
resident of any jurisdiction where limitations of liability are enforceable, (including

written notice to the address listed above. To the extent that we are unable
to reasonably resolve any particular dispute informally after a period of
thirty (30) days from the date when WorldTide receives your dispute notice,

not create rights for any other third party. WorldTide may freely assign, subcontract,
or transfer this Agreement to a third party for any reason, including as part
of any reorganization or merger or for other business reasons. You may not
transfer or assign this Agreement without the prior express written consent of
WorldTide in each instance. If WorldTide fails to enforce any of its rights
