1. ORDER FORMS

These Terms are incorporated by reference into each order form executed by the company or individual identified as the “Supplier” therein and Cvent, pursuant to which Cvent agrees to license and provide the Service to Supplier, as upgraded from time to time, during the Term and in exchange for the fees specified therein (the “Order Form”). These Terms, the Order Form, and the Statement of Work (“SOW”) together comprise a binding written agreement between Supplier and Cvent, effective as of the date of mutual execution of the Order Form and SOW by Cvent and Supplier (this “Agreement”). Cvent may amend these Terms at any time in its sole discretion, effective upon posting the amended Terms at the domain or subdomains of http://www.cvent.com where the prior version of the Terms was posted, or by communicating these changes through any written contact method we have established with you. In the event of any conflict between the provisions contained in an Order Form or SOW and these Terms of Use, the provisions in the Order Form or SOW shall control (provided, however, that the fact that a provision appears in an Order Form or SOW but not these Terms of Use, or in these Terms of Use but not the applicable Order Form or SOW, shall not be deemed to be a conflict for purposes of this sentence).

2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

Cvent’s Lead Scoring solution uses a proprietary algorithm to assign a rank to each RFP so that a Supplier can better evaluate RFPs and more effectively drive revenue for its organization. The Service is accessed through a Supplier dashboard and can be configured to import and aggregate multiple data feeds from a variety of sources, including Supplier’s third party or proprietary customer record management system, as further detailed in the relevant Order Form and accompanying SOW.

3. LICENSE GRANT

Subject to these terms and conditions, and any additional terms contained in an Order Form, if any, Cvent will provide You with a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use the Service, as upgraded from time to time. You may use the Service only for purposes of performing your internal business operations. You may not use the Service as part of a commercial time-sharing or service-bureau operation or in any other resale capacity. Except for the foregoing license, no other rights in the Service are granted to You hereunder, and the Service is and will remain the sole and exclusive property of Cvent and its licensors, if any, whether the Service is separate or integrated with any other products, services or deliverables.

4. TERMINATION

Either party may terminate an Order Form if (i) the other party breaches any material term or condition and fails to cure within thirty (30) days written notice, or (ii) the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any proceeding relating to insolvency, liquidation or receivership.

If Supplier terminates an Order Form in accordance with this Section, Cvent will refund any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the Term of the Order Form as of the effective date of termination.

In the event of non-payment by the Supplier, or if Supplier breaches any other material term or condition of this Agreement, Cvent may accelerate and declare all sums due, and to become due under this Agreement, immediately payable without notice or demand. All accelerated future payments due under this Agreement shall be discounted to their net present value at a discount rate of 5% per annum from the day of default. If Supplier fails to pay fees when due, then Supplier shall also be liable for all fees due during the term of the Agreement and any additional expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys' fees and accrued interest) Cvent incurs in collecting such delinquent fees.

In the event of non-payment by the Supplier, Cvent reserves the right to restrict access to the Services. Supplier agrees that such restrictions do not modify the amounts due under this Agreement or any Order Form.

For purposes of these Terms, “Confidential Information” means any information, regardless of form, proprietary to or maintained in confidence by either party, including, without limitation, any Supplier Data, information, technical data or know-how relating to discoveries, ideas, inventions, software, designs, specifications, processes, systems, diagrams, research, development, business plans, strategies or opportunities, and information related to finances, costs, prices, suppliers, vendors, customers and employees which is disclosed by either party or on its behalf whether directly or indirectly, orally, visually, or in writing, to the other party or any of its employees or agents. The terms and conditions of any order for Cvent products or services shall be deemed Confidential Information of both Cvent and the Supplier.
