This Agreement may apply to you individually, the business or other legal entity user you represent, or both.

By accessing, registering for or using the Services, you: (1) acknowledge that you have read and understand this Agreement; (2) agree to be bound by it in its entirety; and (3) are entering into a legally binding agreement with us. As used in this Agreement and unless separately identified as applicable to either an individual or entity, “you” and “your” refer to both you individually and the entity on behalf of which you are entering into this Agreement.

Failure to do so may result in additional charges or the suspension or termination of the Services by List Partners LLC in its discretion. The number of Authorized Users permitted under the Quote may be amended upon Your request by written consent of List Partners LLC.

4. Protection of Proprietary Information
4.1 Any non-public information you receive through use of the Services, including but not limited to proprietary information of List Partners LLC or its licensors (collectively, the “Proprietary Information”), is the property of List Partners LLC or its licensors and may constitute valuable trade secrets. You acknowledge that List Partners LLC or its licensors derive value from such Proprietary Information not being generally known and agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to protect such Proprietary Information. The Services and Proprietary Information are licensed, not sold. List Partners LLC and its licensors reserves all rights not expressly granted in the Agreement.
4.2 You may view or print Proprietary Information only for your own internal purposes. Your Authorized Users may not distribute Proprietary Information to anyone other than Your employees who have a need to access such Proprietary Information. Authorized Users may not post any Proprietary Information to any news
groups, mailing lists, bulletin boards, websites, or business or social networking services. You will inform all of your Authorized Users of these restrictions.
4.3 The Proprietary Information comprises: (i) works of original authorship, including compiled information containing List Partners LLC’s selection, arrangement and coordination and expression of pre-existing material it has created, gathered or assembled; (ii) trade secret and other confidential information, including data of List Partners LLC and its licensors and other information that derives value or potential value from not being readily known or available; and (iii) information that has been created, developed and maintained by List Partners LLC at great expense, such that misappropriation or unauthorized use by others for commercial gain would unfairly and/or irreparably harm List Partners LLC or reduce List Partners LLC’s incentive to create, develop and maintain the Proprietary Information and provide the Services. You will not commit or permit any act or omission that would contest or impair the intellectual property rights of List Partners LLC or its licensors in the Proprietary Information, that would cause the Proprietary Information to become generally known, or that would cause the Proprietary Information or List Partners LLC to infringe the proprietary or intellectual property rights of a third party.
4.4 You may distribute Proprietary Information within Your company solely for your own exclusive, confidential and internal use during the Term. You will comply with all applicable Federal and state laws, including without limitation those laws concerning fax broadcasts, email transmissions (in particular the CAN-SPAM Act and Canada’s Anti-Spam Law, including the creation and proper use of house email suppression lists), and direct marketing. You are specifically prohibited from: (a) sending commercial electronic messages without the recipient’s consent (permission), including messages to email addresses and social networking accounts, and text messages sent to a cell phone where applicable (b) using or permitting the use of Proprietary Information to prepare an original database or to compare the Services with comparable services provided by others; (c) using or permitting the use of Proprietary Information for the purpose of compiling, enhancing, verifying, supplementing, adding to, or deleting from any mailing list, business directory, or other compilation of information that is sold, rented, published or furnished in any manner to a third party; or (d) using or permitting the use of Proprietary Information in connection with any individual credit, employment or insurance applications.
4.5 You may not use any automated processes to access the Services, such as spiders, bots or scrapers.
4.6 List Partners LLC may, but has no obligation to, monitor the activity occurring under Your Authorized Users’ accounts to ensure compliance with this Agreement. If You or your Authorized Users violate or threaten to violate any provision contained in this Section, such violation or threatened violation will cause irreparable injury to List Partners LLC and the remedy at law for any such violation or threatened violation may be inadequate. In the event of such violation or breach, List Partners LLC will be entitled to an immediate injunction against further improper use or distribution of the Proprietary Information, in addition to all other rights and remedies available to it, including, without limitation, recovery of damages.
5.1 You understand and agree that pricing is based on the number of Authorized Users agreed upon, and You shall pay the annual Services Fee for each such Authorized User.

You will not be entitled to a refund of any subscription fees already paid to List Partners LLC except as may be expressly provided herein. List Partners LLC shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney’s fees and collection costs if it prevails in connection with any legal action it takes against You to recover past due amounts owed to List Partners LLC under this Agreement.
