Welcome to Breadcrumbs.io.
The following terms and conditions govern all use by you of the website located at https://www.Breadcrumbs.io/ (the “Website”), including all of the materials, documents, text, images, graphics, animation, videos and other information and content included in or available at the Website (“Content”), and all access to and use of any subscription services offered through the Website on a paid or free trial basis (“Subscription Service”) . The Website, Content, Subscription Service and any other services provided at the Website are collectively referred to as the “Service.” The Service is owned and operated by Breadcrumbs.io, Inc. (“we,” “us” or “Breadcrumbs”). In these terms and conditions, we’ll refer to you, an individual or entity using the Service or purchasing a Subscription Service for use by individuals you designate (e.g., an employee, representative, consultant, contractor or agent of Customer who is authorized to access and use the Services for Customer’s benefit through the individual’s unique registered Account), as “you,” “Customer” (with respect to an entity), or “Authorized User.”
The Service is available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old, who are acting for themselves or in their capacity as an employee or representative of a business entity or other organization (in which case you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to the Agreement on behalf of yourself and such entity or organization). Breadcrumbs may refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and may change its eligibility criteria, at any time, in its sole discretion.
THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION (SECTION 17) ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, AND ALSO LIMIT THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.
We may translate this Agreement into other languages for your convenience. Nevertheless, the English version governs your relationship with us, and any inconsistencies among the different versions will be resolved in favor of the English version available here. We may also update the Agreement from time to time. If we materially update any portion of the Agreement, we will notify you, at the email address provided in your Account profile, or other reasonable means (for example, by posting a notice on our website) before the date the update becomes effective. We will also post the updated Agreement in its original location marked with the new date. Changes will not be retroactive nor affect your current term of your subscription (the “Subscription Term”). Your renewal of your Subscription Term after we publish or send a notice about our changes to these Terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms.
2. Registration and Accounts.
A. Registration Requirements.
From time to time, at our sole discretion, Breadcrumbs may make all or any part of the Service available only to registered users (such as, for example, to apply for, subscribe or gain access to various information services or employment opportunities). You may elect to register or not, at your discretion. The registration process may require you to provide your name, company name, address, telephone number, email address and certain additional personal data or other information (such as, for example, your preferred contact method and businesses that are of interest to you). An account registered with Breadcrumbs through the Website is referred to as an “Account.”

C. Account Requirements.
Authorized Users agree to: (a) not share your Account or transfer any part of it to anyone else; (b) provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and keep your Account up-to-date; and (c) keep your password secure and confidential. We reserve the right to refuse registration of, or cancel passwords that we deem inappropriate.

3. The Service
A. Your Right to Use the Service.
B. Service Updates
We may enhance and modify the Service and introduce new Service from time to time but will provide you with notice of any changes to a Subscription Service to which you are subscribed, unless such changes are of minor nature with no material effect on our contractual obligations. We will not make changes to the Service that materially reduces the functionality you purchased for the applicable Subscription Term. To the extent we make available any new or different features, functionality or enhancements to the Service, we may market these separately and may require the payment of additional fees. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification of the Service in keeping with this section.
4. Fees and Payment Terms.
A. Subscription Services Fees.
For Subscription Services, unless otherwise provided in your Order, all fees (“Subscription Fees”) are payable by credit card or other payment method permitted by us from time to time, and you authorize us to charge your credit card or bank account for all fees payable during the Subscription Term, at the start of the applicable billing period specified in your Order (i.e., monthly or annually). You further authorize us to use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to such third party. Except as otherwise specified in the applicable Order, Subscription Fees for the Subscription Term are non-refundable, including in the event of a suspension or termination pursuant to Section 11 (Term and Termination) below. In the event your usage increases over the limitations set forth in your Order, we reserve the right to charge or invoice you for the subscription package pertaining for your usage, on a prorated basis and less Subscription Fees you have already paid for the Subscription Term, commencing on the first day of the month of the Subscription Term in which the usage exceeded the applicable limit.
B. Payment Terms
Except as otherwise set forth in the applicable Order, you agree to pay any invoiced amounts within thirty (30) calendar days of the invoice date. We reserve the right to charge interest on late payments at the rate of 1.5% per month or 18% per annum, calculated on a monthly basis on the outstanding balance, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. If any payment is thirty (30) or more days overdue, we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, suspend your access to the Subscription Services until such amounts are paid in full. All amounts payable under this Agreement will be made without setoff or counterclaim. You are responsible for all taxes, duties or other fees imposed, assessed or collected by or under the authority of any governmental body (“Taxes”) imposed on the transaction or the delivery of Subscription Services, except Taxes based on our net income.
C. Free Trial Services
We will make Subscription Services to which you have subscribed on a free trial basis (a “Trial”) available to you until the earlier of: (a) the end of the then-current Trial period offered by us, (b) the start date of any paid Subscription Services you order, or (c) the date on which we elect in our sole discretion to terminate your access to the Trial (the “Trial Term”). You acknowledge and agree that the features and functionality of the Subscription Services may be limited during the Trial Term. In addition, any changes made to Customer Data (by you or for you) (as Customer Data is defined in Section 8.A. (License to Customer Data) below) during the Trial Term may be permanently lost unless you purchase a subscription to the same or upgraded Subscription Services to those covered during the Trial Term. We reserve the right to delete Customer Data following the Trial Term to the extent you do not purchase a paid subscription within seven (7) days following the end of the Trial Term.
D. Usage Limitations
The Subscription Services may be subject to certain limitations (“Usage Rights”), such as, for example, limits on storage capacity for Customer Data, specific to the type of subscription you purchase. We will specify these limitations in the Order for the applicable subscription package. If we make modifications to these limits that would negatively impact you, these modifications will not apply to you until the start of your next Subscription Term, if any. If at any time we determine that you are exceeding the Usage Rights, we shall notify you and you shall bring your usage within the limits of such Usage Rights. If you fail to do so within thirty (30) days of receipt of our notice, we reserve the right to charge and you agrees to pay our then-current usage fees for such overage.
You understand that by using the Service you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data and aggregate and/or anonymized data as set forth in our Privacy Notice. Insofar as the Customer Data or other content submitted by you includes personal data (“Personal Data”), we will only use such Personal Data to provide the Services if such use complies with applicable data protection laws in accordance with our Privacy Notice. Each of us agrees (a) to comply with our own privacy Notice and all applicable local, state, federal, and international laws, rules, and regulations (“Applicable Law”) with respect to Personal Data included in the Customer Data, including with respect to our communications to persons or entities identified in the Customer Data; (b) to reasonably cooperate with the other, at each of our own expense, to ensure compliance, such as by providing each other information relating to our collection, use, and disclosure of personal data for or on behalf of the other party, and deleting consumer personal data within ten (10) days of receipt of a deletion request from the other party; and (c) except as required for Account registration and payment, to not submit, or cause to be submitted, any Customer Data that includes a social security number, passport number, driver’s license number, or similar identifier, credit card or debit card number, employment, financial or health information, personal data relating to a resident of the European Economic Area or personal data relating to an individual under sixteen (16) years of age, or any other information which may be subject to additional protections under applicable laws or regulations including, but not limited to, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), or which could give rise to notification obligations under data breach notification laws, without the other party’s prior written approval.

THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN BREADCRUMBS AND YOU.
SOME STATES AND OTHER JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Breadcrumbs, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees and representatives from any and all claims, actions, demands, damages, liabilities, regulatory proceedings, costs (including settlement costs), and expenses (including reasonable outside attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from or in connection with (a) your use or misuse of the Service; (b) your access to or use of Third-Party Services; or (c) any other party’s access and use of the Services with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code.

15. International Use.
You expressly consent to the transmission, collection, storage, processing and use of Customer Data from, to and within the United States, in addition to the country where you are located (if not the United States). Breadcrumbs makes no representation that the Service is accessible, appropriate or legally available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing and using the Service (including with regard to the provision, collection or processing of data) is prohibited from territories where doing so would be illegal. If you access or use the Service from other locations, then you do so at your own initiative and risk and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws.
16. Governing Law.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State California without regard to conflicts of law principles.
17. Dispute Resolution.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
A. Initial Dispute Resolution
We are available by email at support@Breadcrumbs.io to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Service. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. You agree to use best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
B. Agreement to Binding Arbitration
If we do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is resolved, then either you or we may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the scope of this arbitration clause, the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered on a confidential basis by AAA, in accordance with the AAA Arbitration Rules and Procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense. The parties shall select a single neutral arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of your Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of your Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be in writing and provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions, shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act. If you initiate arbitration, to the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds Two Hundred and Fifty U.S. Dollars ($250) and the claim is found to be non-frivolous, we will pay the additional cost. You will not be required to pay fees and costs incurred by us if you do not prevail in arbitration.
You understand that, absent this mandatory provision, you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You further understand that the right to discovery and appeal, among others, may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
C. Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver
You and we each further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in our respective individual capacities only and not as a class action, and you and we each expressly waive our respective right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief (a) in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction; and (b) for any disputes relating to intellectual property rights, obligations, or any infringement claims.
E. Term for Cause of Action
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
F. Exclusive Venue for Litigation
You and we expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in of the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles, California, for any litigation other than small claims court actions. In the event of litigation relating to this Agreement or the Services, you agree to waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right to a jury trial, except where a jury trial waiver is not permissible under Applicable Law.
