Please note that HopSkip is free for Planners to send RFPs and receive proposals, and for Hotels to receive RFPs and send proposals. By signing up you are not committing to pay anything. It is optional to enter into a paid subscription agreement for premium features and is not required in order to use the platform. This would be covered in a Supplemental Agreement.
1. Acceptance of Terms
2. Limited License
HopSkip hereby grants you a single, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable and limited personal license to access and use the Site and the Services in the form provided by HopSkip in a Supplemental Agreement (if applicable) executed by you and HopSkip. This license is strictly conditioned on your continued compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and applicable law.3. Use Restrictions
You shall not, and shall not knowingly permit any other person to, access or use the Site or Services for any purposes beyond the scope of the license granted to you in this Agreement and, in the case of any third-party materials, except as expressly permitted by the applicable third-party license agreement. Without limiting the foregoing and except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, you shall not at any time, directly or indirectly:a) rent, lease, lend, sell, sublicense, assign, distribute, publish, transfer or otherwise make the Site or Services available to any third party that is not an authorized user;
Any communications or material of any kind that you email, post, or otherwise transmit to HopSkip or through your use of the Site or in connection with the Services, including data, questions, comments, or suggestions (your “Feedback”) will be the Confidential Information of HopSkip. We are free to use, disclose, reproduce, license, distribute and exploit the Feedback as we see fit, without compensation to you or any obligation or restriction because of any intellectual property rights or otherwise.5. Payment
In connection with your use of the Site and Services, you shall be responsible for any fees set forth in a Supplemental Agreement (if applicable) (the “Fees”). All Fees are due net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. All Fees shall be payable in U.S. dollars and are exclusive of taxes. You are responsible for all sales, service, use and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state or local governmental or regulatory authority on any amounts payable by you hereunder, other than any taxes imposed on HopSkip’s income. If you have a good faith belief that you have been incorrectly billed by HopSkip, you must contact HopSkip in writing within five (5) business days following receipt of the applicable invoice and such written notice to HopSkip must specify the calculation error. Unless you have timely notified HopSkip of such Fee dispute, payments not received by HopSkip by the due date shall bear interest of two percent (2%) or the maximum rate allowed by law. HopSkip reserves the right to revoke any discounts applied to invoices past due. If such failure to make a payment when due continues for thirty (30) or more days, HopSkip may withhold, suspend or revoke its grant of license under this Agreement. All Fees are nonrefundable and are not subject to set-off.6. Promotions
HopSkip may from time to time, in its sole discretion, provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services or goods obtained through the use of the Services, and you agree that such promotions, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Service or the Fees applied to you.7. Consent to Electronic Communications
You agree to the use of electronic communications and to transact business electronically through the Site and in connection with the Services. You further consent to HopSkip’s communicating via electronic technologies by the provided contact methods, such as telephone number and email address.8. Confidential Information
Each party shall keep confidential and not disclose to any other party or use, except as required by this Agreement, non-public information in any form or medium (whether oral, written, electronic or other) obtained from the other party (“Confidential Information”); provided, however, that neither party shall be prohibited from disclosing or using information, (a) that at the time of disclosure is publicly available or becomes publicly available through no act or omission of the party having a confidentiality obligation under this section, (b) that is or has been disclosed to such party by a third party who is not under (and to whom such party does not owe) an obligation of confidentiality with respect thereto, (c) that is or has been independently acquired or developed by such party, or (d) to the minimum extent use or disclosure is required by court order or as otherwise required by law, on condition that notice of such requirement by law for such disclosure is given to the other parties prior to making any such use or disclosure.
Neither party shall access or use the other party’s Confidential Information other than as necessary to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under and in accordance with this Agreement. Each party shall safeguard the other party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access or disclosure using at least the degree of care it uses to protect its similarly sensitive information and in no event less than a reasonable degree of care, and shall not disclose or permit access to the other party’s Confidential Information other than to its representatives who (i) have a need to know, (ii) are informed of the confidential information of the Confidential Information, and (iii) who are bound by written confidentiality and restricted use obligations at least as protective of the Confidential Information as the terms of this Agreement. Each party shall promptly notify the other party of any unauthorized use or disclosure of such other party’s Confidential Information and use its best efforts to prevent further unauthorized use or disclosure. For the avoidance of doubt, the Site and the Services are the Confidential Information of HopSkip. You shall be responsible for ensuring your representatives’ compliance with, and liable for any of your representatives’ noncompliance with, the confidentiality obligations of this Agreement.
Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement or upon the written request of HopSkip, you shall promptly destroy, and permanently erase from all devices and systems you directly or indirectly control, HopSkip’s Confidential Information, including all documents, files and tangible materials and certify to such destruction in writing.9. Enforcement and Termination
HopSkip, in its sole and absolute discretion, may suspend or terminate your use of the Site or any Services at any time, without prior notice, if you fail to comply with any of your obligations under this Agreement, violate applicable law, or if you make any representation to HopSkip that is inaccurate.
Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement, (a) all rights, licenses and authorizations granted to you under this Agreement will immediately terminate and you shall immediately cease use of and the Site and Services, and (b) all Fees payable by you to HopSkip under this Agreement are immediately payable and due no later than fourteen (14) days after the effective date of such expiration or termination.10.
