Ability to Accept Terms. If you access and use the Service and/or the Website, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age and have the right and authority to enter into these Terms on your own behalf. If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these Terms, in which case the terms "you" or "your" shall refer to such entity and its affiliates.
License to Website. CyCognito hereby grants you, and you accept, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, and fully revocable license to access and use the Website and Content, provided that you comply with these Terms and the restrictions herein.
Nature of the Service.
Client agrees that the Service may include scanning and related analysis of Client's IT Systems, for which CyCognito may use various techniques and software tools, to which the Client hereby consents. Client acknowledges and agrees that CyCognito cannot and does not guarantee that the results of the Service will identify all security issues and vulnerabilities and correctly measure the overall security posture and quality of the Client IT Systems. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, CyCognito will not conduct a review to detect fraud or similar illegal acts nor identify, address or correct or offer services for the correction of any errors or defects in Client's IT Systems, other devices or components thereof. Receipt of the Service does not mean that the Client IT Systems are secure from every form of attack. To the extent required or deemed advisable by CyCognito and/or Client, Client will inform or confirm to third parties that CyCognito is conducting the Service with Client’s approval.
Rescan: The Client is entitled, if requested, for a certain amount of rescans as detailed in the commercial proposal, for which our response will be within three (3) business days.
The Services will be carried out on the Client IT Systems that we may reasonably believe belong to the Client through information we independently obtain. We will notify the Client of the list of Client IT Systems that we have found. The Client may manually identify additional systems that are part of the Client IT Systems and add them to the Services. It is the responsibility of the Client to verify that all such systems are indeed Client IT Systems and to confirm their inclusion in the Services and compliance with these Terms.
The Reports are intended for the Client's internal use only (consistent with the purpose of the Service). The Client may not disclose any Report (or any portion or summary of a Report) to any third party, except (i) with CyCognito's prior written consent, (ii) as required by applicable law, and (iii) to third parties to the extent reasonably required for the implementation of any remediation recommended in the Reports (provided that such third parties are bound by confidentiality obligations consistent with the obligations set forth in these Terms).
Client Responsibility. Client shall have sole responsibility for all adequate protection and backup of data and/or equipment used in connection with or having any connection to the Client IT Systems and protection and backing up of all Client IT Systems. Client will not make any claim against CyCognito for lost data, re-run time, inaccurate output, work delays or lost profits resulting from the Service. In order not to distort the results of the Service, you will respond in a normal fashion if or when you detect traces of activity from the Service in any logs of the Client IT Systems or any systems monitoring the Client IT Systems as would occur in the event of a real security penetration. Additionally, if legally required under any applicable law, you will be responsible to notify legal or public authorities of such activity detected, discovered or created by the Service.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have obtained and will hold for the entire duration of the provision of the Service from the third-party owner (or licensor, as the case may be) of all products and services contained in the Client IT Systems or otherwise subject to the Service (including internet service providers and hosting suppliers), all approvals and permits required in order to make the Service not infringing on the rights (intellectual property or other) of such third party, including such third party’s information systems, network, and infrastructure and to the extent required, you have obtained appropriate consent from such third parties for the Services to be carried out; and (ii) the Client Data and all other data you provide is lawful and non-infringing.
Restrictions. Except as expressly permitted in these Terms, you may not, and shall not allow any third party to: (i) give, sell, rent, lease, timeshare, sublicense, disclose, publish, assign, market, sell, display, transmit, broadcast, transfer or distribute any portion of the Service and/or the Website to any third party, including, but not limited to your affiliates, or use the Service in any service bureau arrangement; (ii) circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Website and/or Service or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or that enforce limitations on use of the Service and/or Website; (iii) reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble, decrypt or attempt to derive the source code of, the Service and/or Website, or any components thereof; (iv) copy, modify, translate, patch, improve, alter, change or create any derivative works of the Service and/or Website, or any part thereof; (v) use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access or monitor the Service and/or Website for any purpose; (vi) take any action that imposes or may impose (at CyCognito’s sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the CyCognito’s infrastructure which supports the Website and/or Service; (vii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the integrity or proper working of the Service and/or Website, or any related activities; (viii) develop (alone or together with others) a service or product competing with the Service and/or Website; and (ix) use the Service and/or Website in any unlawful manner or for any harmful, irresponsible or inappropriate purpose, or in breach of these Terms. Without derogating from the above, you agree to be liable to CyCognito for any act or omission of any of your employees or anyone on your behalf using the Service or Website that would constitute a breach of these Terms as if such acts or omissions were performed by you.
