Refers to all users of the Site and Services, including Clients, Invited Users and the Account Holder, unless expressly specified.
1 Account Terms
- In return for payment of the subscription fees by the Client, we agree to provide the Services to the Client on these Terms.
- Users must nominate an email address and password (together referred to as your “login”) to use the Site. Your login is used by you to access the Site and the Services. Clarity is entitled to assume that all access to and use of the Site and the Services using your login is access and use by you.
- A login may only be used by one individual – a single login shared by multiple individuals is not permitted. The Account Holder may create separate logins for as many individual users as the Client’s subscription plan allows.
- During the signup process the Account Holder and each User must provide their full name and a valid email address. As part of our security process we verify that you have access to the nominated email address.
- You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Clarity is not responsible for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
- You accept that any wallet you have access to via Clarity is only to be used for the platform, CLRTY and nothing else.
- You agree to not move tokens out of your Clarity wallet to a wallet outside of Clarity.
2 Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading and Late Payments Terms
- Payments will be charged using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for the Client (or the Account Holder on behalf of the Client).
- The Service is billed in advance on a per calendar month basis, for monthly subscriptions, and on a 12 months in advance basis, for annual subscriptions, and those fees are non-refundable. There are no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account.
- Payments will cover the use of the contracted Services for a monthly or annual subscription period as agreed.
- All fees are exclusive of UK VAT (if required) but exclusive of all other taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities. The Client is responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.
- The services and prices are described in detail at https://clarity-hq.com/pricing
- For any upgrade in plan level, the Client will be charged the new rate pro rata commencing from the upgrade date and monthly at the full rate thereafter, for monthly subscriptions, and from the upgrade date to the end of the original 12 months and annually at the full rate thereafter for annual subscriptions.
- Downgrading your Service may cause a reduction in features, or capacity of your Account. Clarity has no liability for such reduction.
- The price of the downgraded plan level will commence the month following downgrade. There are no refunds for downgrading.
- Unless the Client (through the Account Holder) notifies Clarity before the end of the applicable subscription period that the Client wants to cancel, using the method described in Section 3 below, your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the then-current period, for monthly and annual subscriptions, and you authorise us to collect the then-applicable subscription fee in accordance with item 2.1 above.
- Each late payment will be subject to ‘statutory interest’ payments at 8% plus the current Bank of England base rate at that time plus a late payment admin fee of £25 plus applicable sales tax. A failed payment is a late payment and each failed payment will each incur an additional late payment admin fee of £25 plus applicable sales tax. The late payment ‘statutory interest’ and admin fee may be waived based on Our discretion.
3 Cancellation and Termination
- If you, as the Client, wish to terminate your account, the Account Holder must notify us using our normal account management and termination process within the Service. The Account Holder is solely responsible for properly cancelling your account. You need to submit your request for cancellation in writing giving a full calendar month’s notice. When you give notice you will make one more full calendar month’s payment. For example, if you give written notice on 4th of the month, your final full month payment will be for the full following month.
- Upon cancellation, all Client use of Clarity systems, processes and intellectual property must cease and if not, will be subject to additional fees.
- There is no refund or credit of monthly fees for cancellation during a month.
- If a downgrade has been completed within three months of written notice to cancel then the price of the plan level prior to the downgrade will be charged in the month after notice was given, as per 3.1 above.
- The final ‘one full calendar month’s notice’ payment will be taken when the written notice has been received.
- Failure to pay our fees for any reason may result in the suspension or termination of a Client’s account (including all associated user accounts) and, after a short period, the deletion of those accounts and associated data. In addition, each late payment will be subject to ‘statutory interest’ and admin fees in accordance to 2.10 above.
- Clarity, in its sole discretion, may decline to provide Services to anyone for any reason, and may suspend or terminate accounts and refuse access to or use of the Services for any reason at any time. Termination of the Services will result in the deactivation or deletion of user accounts or access to user accounts.
4 Modifications to the Service and Prices
- Clarity may modify or discontinue the Services (or any part of them) with or without prior notice.
- Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly subscription plan fees to the Service, are subject to change by us upon 30 days’ prior notice. Such notice may be provided by us at any time by posting the changes to the site, by email, or provided through the Service itself.
- Clarity is not liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
5 Copyright and Data Ownership
- This Agreement does not transfer from Clarity to you any Clarity or third party intellectual property rights, and all right, title and interest in and to such rights will remain (as between the parties) solely with Clarity.
- All guides, processes, systems, checklists, templates etc are owned by Clarity and whilst you are a paying Clarity member you are entitled to use these documents and brand them.
- We claim no intellectual property rights over the data you provide to the Service. As between the parties, all data uploaded by you remain yours. However, if you elect to provide access to your data to other users, you agree to allow us to enable these users to view and or edit this shared content. You are responsible for controlling shared access to your data and can revoke or change an invited user’s access.
- You must maintain copies of all your Data input into the Service. Clarity adheres to appropriate professional practice and procedures to reduce the risk of data loss, including a daily system data back-up, but does not make any guarantees that there will be no loss of Data. Clarity expressly excludes liability for any loss of data no matter how caused.
- When adding data to the Clarity platform you are confirming that you have permission to add this data, whether yours or your client’s and that where your clients request for the data to be removed you will remove their data as soon as reasonably possible.
- Clarity may at any time or from time to time use your data to derive non-personally-identifying, and non-company identifying, information in aggregate form. (e.g., for industry benchmarking or statistical analysis). You hereby consent to such use of your data by Clarity.
- The Services and the Site are protected by copyright, trade mark, trade secret and other intellectual property rights. All such rights are reserved. The Services and the Site are copyright © 2019 Clarity Operations Ltd. You may not reproduce, publish, copy, or reuse any portion of the application code, or visual design elements or concepts included in the Services or the Site without express prior written consent from Clarity. However, members of Clarity have permission to utilise Clarity systems, processes and intellectual property whilst they are a paying member. See 3. Cancellation and Termination for when cancellation of membership occurs.
- You must not modify, copy, adapt, reproduce, disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer any software used to deliver the Services.
6 Managing data privacy and data sharing among entities
- The Service allows members of an organisation to import and analyse data from multiple entities (for example, multiple companies within a corporate group, or multiple unrelated companies such as accountants, mentors, members of a franchise group or trade association). The Service also allows an organisation to create user accounts for that organisation’s own clients. Data from such entities and clients may be entered, analysed and managed within the Service.
- Importantly, you are accountable to ensure the appropriate roles and permissions are applied in order to avoid data being inappropriately shared amongst those entities.
- Where an organisation groups companies into benchmark groups for comparative purposes, the level of access for the organisation’s users can be specified. The available access levels are:
– “No access”: the user has no access to any benchmark groups, meaning they will not be able to view any of the benchmark tools, or see data from other entities they do not have access to.
– “Limited access”: the user has access to the benchmark group, and can see certain companies identified in the analysis. These are companies which have been specifically shared with the user, and can be seen in the user’s “My Companies” interface. The results and keyword categories of other companies in this group are visible, but the company names are not revealed.
– “Full access”: the user has access to a benchmark group and can see the name, results and keywords of all other companies in the group.
- Authorisation requirements – product access: A subset of our employees have access to the products and to customer data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective customer support, to troubleshoot potential problems, to detect and respond to security incidents and implement data security. Access is enabled through “just in time” requests for access. Employees are granted access by role. Employee roles are reviewed at least once every six months. All Clarity employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with company guidelines and ethical standards.
- Clarity Clients must consider the data privacy arrangements you have in place with your clients, employees, team members or related entities before adding them as an Invited User into Clarity, importing their data into Clarity, or adding a client company to a benchmark group.
