For purposes hereof, “Registered Entity” means the customer of Quickbase that has subscribed for and is paying the fees for the Service and expressly excludes the third party end users of such Quickbase customer.
1. Services Provided by Quickbase.
Quickbase or third parties acting on Quickbase's behalf will provide access to the Quickbase Service, a web-based service that allows you to store, retrieve, organize and share data (the "Service"). Subject to these Terms of Service (including all policies linked to it), Quickbase hereby grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to access and use the Service solely for your own internal business purposes. All rights not expressly granted to you herein are reserved by Quickbase and its licensors. You are authorized to access and use the Service and to otherwise freely use all tools, features, and capabilities of the Service in accordance with these Terms of Service. In order to use the Service, you are responsible at your own expense to acquire access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and to pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, you agree to provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device. You shall not attempt to access any other of Quickbase's systems, programs or data that are not made available for public use by Quickbase.
2. Service Fees.
You agree to pay any applicable fees for the Service plan described on your account page. If (a) the number of users granted access exceeds the number of users purchased, or (b) you exceed the number of applications, attachments, file space or other plan or package entitlements during the subscription term, Quickbase reserves the right to invoice you for such overage. Quickbase reserves the right to change fees for the Service at any time, at its discretion, with notice to you, which notice may be provided to your email address on file with Quickbase or through your Quickbase account; provided, that any increase in fees shall take effect on the renewal of your then-current subscription term.
2.2 Payment Terms.
Users may have the option to subscribe to a Service plan that provides for (a) monthly or (b) annual payments. For monthly subscriptions, fees shall be due and payable to Quickbase by credit card monthly in advance on the billing date as displayed in the Service. For annual or multi-year subscriptions, fees shall be due and payable to Quickbase by check or wire/ACH transfer within thirty (30) days from the date of Quickbase’s invoice and you will be invoiced on an annual basis or about the beginning of your subscription start date agreed to by you in the Quickbase order form for the Service. Quickbase reserves the right to suspend the accounts of customers who fail to make payments on their plan(s). All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if the Service is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your subscription term.
You will be responsible for, and will promptly pay, all taxes and duties of any kind (including but not limited to sales, use and withholding taxes), if any, associated herewith or your receipt or use of the Service, except for taxes based on Quickbase’s net income. In the event that Quickbase is required to collect or pay any tax for which you are responsible, Quickbase will invoice you and you will pay such taxes and duties directly to Quickbase. As between you and Quickbase, you will be responsible for collecting and remitting all taxes related to the use of the Service. You will make all payments to Quickbase free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes or duties; any such taxes or duties imposed on payments of fees to Quickbase will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide Quickbase with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as Quickbase may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
The Service, other Service users, or third parties may provide links to other World Wide Web sites or resources. Because Quickbase has no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that Quickbase is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources even if such site or resource provides a product that may be used in connection with the Service or contains advertising associated with Quickbase’s name or brand. You further acknowledge and agree that Quickbase shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such site or resource.

Such restrictions do not apply to the Content and Applications you place on the Service. For the avoidance of doubt, the right to use the Service (a) may be exercised by your agents, representatives, contractors and/or customers that are not competitors of Quickbase; provided, that (i) you require such third parties to execute a written agreement with you that is at least as protective of the Service as this Agreement and which does not grant any greater rights than those granted to you herein and includes all restrictions set forth herein and (ii) you shall be responsible for any breach of this Terms of Service by any such third party. You agree not to access the Service by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Quickbase for use in accessing the Service.

5.4 Users; Concurrent Usage Prohibited.

You may increase the number of users at any time by adding additional users through your account page or via an additional order form. The subscription term for any additional users added will run concurrently with the then current subscription term and the applicable additional subscription fees will be pro-rated based on the remaining then-current subscription term. You are responsible for payment of all subscription fees for users ordered during the subscription term, whether or not such user is active.
Concurrent usage is prohibited. You may only grant access to the Service to those users who have been assigned unique access credentials. A single username or password may not be used by more than one (1) user. Sharing of access credentials by more than one (1) user is prohibited.

8. Customer Use of Quickbase Exchange Applications and Third Party Use of Customer Applications.
You may also have the opportunity to license Applications developed by third parties or customers of the Service from Quickbase via the Quickbase Exchange. Such Applications may be provided to you as a convenience, not as a requirement or condition to use the Service. You acknowledge that while the Applications are intended to work with the Service, Quickbase is not responsible to you or any third parties for the Applications, or any problems caused by the Application that may affect your use of the Service. By providing the Applications via the Exchange or other Quickbase website, Quickbase does not guarantee or certify that the Applications will function properly for use with the Service. Your sole exclusive remedy is to cease use of the Application. Nothing in this Section 8 changes your rights and obligations with respect to the Service, or Quickbase’s liability to you with respect to the Service.
As a third party end user of a customer, you may have the opportunity to use Applications which are made available to you by a customer via the Quickbase Service. Such Applications are provided to you as a convenience and you are not required to use such Applications or the Service. You acknowledge that Quickbase is not responsible to you or any third parties for your use of, or inability to use, the Service or the Applications, or any problems caused by the Service or the Applications. DISCLAIMER: Your sole exclusive remedy against Quickbase for any issues arising out of or related to your use of the Service or the Applications is to cease use of the Service and the Applications. These Terms of Service do not grant you any rights or remedies against Quickbase and shall apply to you for the sole purpose of enabling Quickbase to enforce against you the restrictions applicable to the use of the Service which set forth herein. You shall have no rights, remedies or recourse against Quickbase for any reason. If you do not agree with the foregoing, do not use the Applications or the Service.
8.2 Application License Grant.
By downloading or accessing an Application via the Exchange or the Quickbase Service, Quickbase grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable license to (i) use an Application solely with the Service for as long as you are a Quickbase customer or a third party user of a Quickbase customer; and (ii) if you are a Quickbase customer, develop, modify and distribute a variation or an improvement to the Application subject to these Terms of Service and the Supplemental Terms, where applicable. Additional Quickbase terms and conditions (“Additional Terms”) may apply to particular Applications if such terms are disclosed to you before you access the Application. Any third-party terms and conditions that accompany the Application which conflict with these Terms of Service, Supplemental Terms, or Additional Terms are null and void. Quickbase reserves all rights not expressly granted to you hereunder. This license does not apply to Applications provided from websites or sources other than the Quickbase Exchange or Quickbase Service.

You agree that Quickbase may, in its sole discretion, use your feedback in any way, including in future modifications of the Service or Applications, multimedia works and/or advertising and promotional materials relating thereto. Quickbase reserves the right to change, condense or delete any content on its website that it deems, in its sole discretion, to violate the Acceptable Use Policy or any other provision of these Terms of Service. Quickbase does not guarantee that you will have any recourse through Quickbase to edit or delete any Content you have submitted. Quickbase reserves the right to remove or to refuse to post any submission for any reason. You acknowledge that you, not Quickbase or its service providers, are responsible for submissions of Content made to the Service by you or your end users. None of the Content that you or your end users submit shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Quickbase, its agents, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners or third party service providers and their respective directors, officers and employees.
Neither Quickbase nor the Application developer is obligated to provide you with support or maintenance of any Application whether or not the Application is distributed on the Exchange and even if it negatively impacts your ability to use the Service or destroys your Content. You are solely responsible for selecting an Application based on your own evaluation and requirements. Quickbase does not review or make recommendations of the Applications by distributing or marketing the Applications via the Exchange or the Service or providing a favorable review of the Application on its website or via the Exchange. All Applications are provided “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” without any express or implied representations or warranties. You disclaim all liability, claims and damages against Quickbase and the Application developer for any claims arising from the Application, whether or not the Application was distributed via the Exchange and whether or not Quickbase reviewed, approved or provided a favorable review of the Application at any time. If you do not agree with all these Terms of Service, including the Supplemental Terms and Additional Terms, if any, do not download or access an Application from the Exchange. Sections 8.1, 8.5, 14.1, 14.4, 14.5, 15(A), 15(D), 15(E), and 15(I) of these Terms of Service apply to all users of Applications made available through the Service, whether or not such user is a customer of Quickbase and whether or not access to the Application and the Service was provided by Quickbase.
Each party who accesses and uses the Service or the Exchange and Quickbase (together the "parties") shall keep in confidence all of the information maintained by the Service or the Exchange, as well as any trade secrets, know-how, software, product and technology-related information; customer lists, financial information, sales, marketing and business plans, personal identifiable information such as the names of a party’s customers, source code, product roadmap and cost and pricing data, whether or not so marked or identified as confidential or proprietary ("Confidential Information").
All rights, title and interest in and to the Confidential Information shall remain vested in the party disclosing the Confidential Information ("Disclosing Party"). No rights are granted to the party receiving the Confidential Information ("Receiving Party") by license or otherwise, express or implied, to any trademark, trade secret, copyright, invention, discovery, or to any patent covering the invention or discovery, or any other intellectual property right, nor is the Receiving Party granted any rights in or to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential information, except the limited right to review the Confidential Information solely in performance under these Terms of Service. All rights relating to the Confidential Information that are not expressly granted to the Receiving Party are reserved and retained by the Disclosing Party. ALL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS, CONDITIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, ARE DISCLAIMED.
The parties shall (a) take reasonable care to prevent unauthorized disclosure or use of the Confidential Information, but in any case not less than the care it takes to protect its own Confidential Information; prevent any unauthorized access, reproduction, disclosure, or use of any of the Confidential Information; (b) use Confidential Information solely in performance under these Terms of Service; (c) restrict access to Confidential Information to its officers, directors, agents, contractors, employees, or representatives who have a need to know such information and who are prohibited from disclosing the information by a contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation no less restrictive than these provisions, including employees of any legal entity the Receiving Party controls, or is controlled by, or under common control, directly or indirectly, by ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the voting shares; (d) not remove any copyright or trademark notice, or indication of confidentiality on Confidential Information; and (e) immediately notify in writing the Disclosing Party in the event of unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information. Subsections (a) through (e) above impose no obligation upon Receiving Party to the extent Receiving Party can demonstrate and document that the Confidential Information was rightfully: (i) known by Receiving Party, without restriction, prior to its receipt from Disclosing Party; (ii) obtained from a third party that had no obligation of confidentiality; (iii) in the public domain through no improper conduct by Receiving Party; or (iv) independently developed by or for Receiving Party without access to the Confidential Information.
The Receiving Party is only permitted to disclose Confidential Information if required by court order, law or regulation, provided however, that Receiving Party shall: (a) give Disclosing Party written notice promptly upon receipt of such a disclosure requirement before any disclosure is made, if legally permitted, and cooperate should Disclosing Party object to such disclosure; and (b) disclose only the Confidential Information that is required by that law or regulation. The parties shall return (or delete in case of electronic copies of such information) any and all Confidential Information, and all copies thereof, upon the other party's request provided that (i) as to your active Service data and the Content contained therein, you may delete data per standard Service procedures, or only upon e-mail or other written instruction by your account administrator; and (ii) as to backed-up Service data and the Content contained therein, such Service data and/or Content will be automatically deleted over time pursuant to Quickbase's standard back-up procedures for the Service. The parties shall immediately give notice to the other party of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the other party's Confidential Information.
The rights and obligations under this Section 9 shall survive expiration, rescission or termination of these Terms of Service. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Receiving Party’s obligations to protect Confidential Information received shall continue for five (5) years from the date of disclosure by Disclosing Party.
Nothing in these Terms of Service shall prohibit or restrict either party’s right to possess, develop, use, or market products or services, alone or with others, similar to or competitive with those disclosed in the Confidential Information, in compliance with these Terms of Service.
The parties agree that unauthorized use of Confidential Information or other breach of these Terms of Service may cause irreparable harm for which remedies at law would be inadequate, and that a party is entitled to seek equitable relief, in addition to remedies at law.
Quickbase may disclose or report Confidential Information in limited circumstances where it believes in good faith that disclosure is required under the law. For example, Quickbase may be required to disclose Confidential Information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, to comply with a legal process such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or a law enforcement request.
Do NOT use the Quickbase Service or Applications made available through the Service or Exchange to collect and store credit card numbers. Credit card numbers must be stored pursuant to PCI compliance guidelines, and Quickbase is not PCI compliant. You shall be liable to Quickbase for any damages, fines, penalties and other liabilities Quickbase may incur as a result of your or your users' breach of the foregoing.
Quickbase shall reasonably cooperate with you (at your cost) or with an applicable regulatory authority in connection with the examination of your Content or other data in your Quickbase accounts by such applicable regulatory authority in connection with an audit or other formal proceeding by such regulatory authority.
11. Registered Entities.
If you are a Registered Entity and permit your affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, and/or any third party access and/or use the Service and/or your Content, you shall be solely responsible for (i) their acts and/or omissions in connection with their access and/or use of the Service and (ii) ensuring that their access and/or use of the Service is in compliance with these Terms of Service, and any and all applicable local laws, rules and regulations. You agree to fully indemnify Quickbase and its affiliates, subsidiaries, licensors, and online service providers (collectively, "Representatives") for any liability, fines, penalties, costs, claims and/or damages incurred by Quickbase and/or the Representatives in connection with any claim related to the access and/or use of the Service and/or your Content by you, your affiliates, subsidiaries, employees or any third-party authorized by you. You agree to notify Quickbase immediately upon discovery of any unauthorized access or use of the Service, or any password or account, or any known or suspected breach of security in connection with the Service.
12. Modifications to the Service or Agreements.
Quickbase reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify the Service (or any part thereof), the Exchange, or any related service or offering with or without notice. We may assign a specific URL for your use with Quickbase. You understand and agree that we have the right to modify or retire that URL at any time, with reasonable notice to you. In such case, we may assign you a replacement URL. Should Quickbase choose to permanently discontinue the Service, Quickbase (i) will send notification to your Account Administrator via e-mail at least sixty (60) days prior to such discontinuance and (ii) will post notification of this decision on the Service web site at least thirty (30) days prior to such discontinuance. In such instance, you will be responsible for retrieving your data from the Service during the sixty (60)-day period referenced in (i).
Quickbase may establish or revise from time to time general practices and limits concerning your use of the Service consistent with its general practices and limits for its other customers that have purchased the same plan or package, including without limitation: (i) establishing the maximum amount of storage space that you are allotted within the Service at any given time; and (ii) limiting the amount of bandwidth you may use within the Service in a given period of time. Quickbase may limit without notice the volume of email forwarding or file downloading from your database within the Service in response to unreasonable activity (such as spamming or hosting a publicly accessible exchange of large data files) as determined in Quickbase’s reasonable discretion. Quickbase reserves the right to change these general practices and limits at its sole discretion and will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with as much notice of such changes as possible, except in the event of an emergency or a material performance, availability, stability, or legal issue affecting the Service.
You agree that Quickbase shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service, the Exchange, any resulting loss or destruction of any Content that you place on the Service, or removal of an Application from the Exchange. Quickbase may specify from time to time the version(s) of related products required in order to use the Service (e.g., supported browser versions). Quickbase may periodically modify these Terms of Service, the Supplemental Terms, any Additional Terms or any other agreement incorporated herein by reference. In the event Quickbase modifies any terms, Quickbase may post it to the Service web site and may, promptly thereafter, notify your Account Administrator via e-mail that such posting has been made. Your continued use of the Service, or your submission of your Application to Quickbase for distribution via the Exchange, or your download or access to Applications from the Exchange after such modification shall constitute your acceptance of the Terms of Service, any Additional Terms, and/or the Supplemental Terms with the new modifications, as applicable. If you do not agree to any of such changes, you may terminate the Terms of Service, the Additional Terms, and/or the Supplemental Terms, as applicable and immediately cease all access and use of the Service, Application(s) and/or submission of new Applications to Quickbase. In addition, Quickbase may at any time introduce separate Terms of Service for users in certain jurisdictions and require users in these jurisdictions to agree to the separate Terms of Service. In all cases, you and all users agree that termination of the Terms of Service, the Supplemental Terms, any Additional Terms, and any separate Terms of Service, and cessation of all access and use of the Service and Applications provided via the Exchange would be the exclusive remedy if you and such users do not wish to comply with the Terms of Service, the Supplemental Terms or other agreements incorporated therein by reference.
13. Term and Termination.
These Terms of Service shall be effective upon registration and thereafter shall continue on either (i) if you are a monthly subscriber, a month-to-month basis with the same number of users and on the same plan until either you or Quickbase provide notice of termination or downgrade to the other at least thirty days prior to your billing date or (ii) if you are an annual or multi-year subscriber, an annual basis with the same number of users and on the same plan until either you or Quickbase provide notice of termination or downgrade to the other at least thirty days prior to the end of your then-current subscription period.

You acknowledge and agree that Quickbase, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account and/or deny you access to, use of, or submission of Content for, all or part of the Service, without prior notice and for any reason, including if you engage in any conduct that Quickbase believes: (a) violates the letter or spirit of any term or provision of the Terms of Service or the Supplemental Terms, (b) violates the rights of Quickbase or third parties, or (c) is otherwise inappropriate for continued access and use of the Service. You agree that, upon termination, Quickbase may delete all files and information related to your account and may bar your access to your account and the Service.
