- Confidential Information.
Any information that a receiving party knows or has reason to know (either because such information is marked or otherwise identified by the disclosing party orally or in writing as confidential or proprietary, has commercial value, or because it is not generally known in the relevant trade or industry) is “Confidential Information” of the disclosing party and will remain the sole property of the disclosing party. Such Confidential Information includes but is not limited to data, information (including personally identifiable information), ideas, materials, specifications, procedures, schedules, software, technical processes and formulas, source code, product designs, sales, cost and other unpublished financial information, product and business plans, advertising revenues, usage rates, advertising relationships, projections, marketing data and other similar information provided by a party. For avoidance of doubt, Customer Data shall be deemed Confidential Information of CityGro. Each party agrees that it will not disclose, use, modify, copy, reproduce or otherwise divulge such Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written approval of the disclosing party except that the receiving party shall have the right to disclose such Confidential Information to the extent required by applicable law or to the directors, officers or employees of the receiving party who have a need to know such Confidential Information in order to perform its obligations under the Agreement and to the extent such directors, officers or employees are subject to obligations of confidentiality and non-disclosure that are substantially similar to the obligations set forth in the Agreement. The prohibitions contained in this Section will not apply to information (i) already lawfully known to the receiving party prior to such disclosure by the disclosing party; (ii) independently developed by the receiving party without access to or use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information; (iii) disclosed in published materials; (iv) generally known to the public; or (v) lawfully obtained from any third party. In addition, a party will not be considered to have breached its obligations under the Agreement to the extent Confidential Information is required to be disclosed by any governmental authority, provided that, to the extent legally practicable, the receiving party advises the disclosing party prior to making such disclosure in order that the disclosing party may object to such disclosure, take action to ensure confidential treatment of the Confidential Information, or take such other action as it considers appropriate to protect the Confidential Information.
- Dispute Resolution; Governing Law.
In the event of a reward dispute or mistake between a Merchant and User, CityGro may in its sole discretion unilaterally make adjustments to User reward points.
To the extent any disputes arise under the Agreement or otherwise between the parties, the parties will first attempt in good faith to resolve their dispute informally. This Agreement is governed by the State of Illinois and you expressly agree to the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or dispute with CityGro in the federal and state courts within the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to the Agreement.
You will defend, indemnify, and hold CityGro and its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives harmless from and against any third party suit, proceeding, assertion against any damages, judgments, liability, costs and expenses (including without limitation any reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred arising from your material breach of this Agreement, your unauthorized use or misuse of the CityGro Programs or any unauthorized combination of the CityGro with any hardware, software, products, data or other materials not specified or provided by CityGro.
- Limitation of Liability.
CityGro’s aggregate liability for all claims (including claims for indemnification of third party damages) arising out of the Agreement, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, will not exceed the amount of fees paid by you to CityGro under the Agreement during the twelve (12) months preceding the date on which the claim occurred. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will CityGro be liable for any loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of data or any special, indirect, exemplary, incidental or consequential damages arising from or in relation to the Agreement or the use of the Services, however caused and regardless of theory of liability. In addition, CityGro will not be liable for damage (physical or otherwise) incurred by the merchant upon any asset or property from the installation or removal of any CityGro product or add-on in-store and will not be responsible for replacement or cost of repair if damages occur. This limitation will apply even if such damages were foreseeable and you have been advised or are aware of the possibility of such damages.
Except where explicitly provided otherwise herein, any notice required or permitted hereunder will be delivered to the contact person listed on the Order Information as follows (with notice deemed given as indicated): (i) by personal delivery when delivered personally; (ii) by established overnight courier upon written verification of receipt; (iii) by facsimile transmission when receipt is confirmed orally; (iv) by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, upon verification of receipt; or (v) by electronic delivery when receipt is confirmed orally.
You may not, without the prior written consent of CityGro, assign the Agreement, in whole or in part, either voluntarily or by operation of law, and any attempt to do so will be a material default of the Agreement and will be void. The Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the respective parties hereto, their respective successors in interest, legal representatives, heirs and assigns.
- No Third Party Beneficiaries.
The Agreement is solely for the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns, and does not confer any rights or remedies on any other person or entity.
- Amendment; Waiver.
This Agreement may be changed only by written agreement signed by both CityGro and you. The failure of either party to exercise or enforce any of its rights under the Agreement will not act as a waiver of subsequent breaches and the waiver of any breach will not act as a waiver of subsequent breaches.
If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law and the other provisions of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
- Force Majeure.
If either party is prevented from performing any of its obligations under the Agreement due to any cause beyond the party’s reasonable control including, without limitation, an act of God, fire, flood, explosion, terrorism, war, embargo, government regulation, civil or military authority, acts or omissions of carriers, transmitters, providers, or acts of vandals, or hackers. The time for that party’s performance will be extended for the period of the delay or failure to perform due to such occurrence, except that you will not be excused from the payment of any sums of money owed by you to CityGro provided prior to the force majeure event.
- Independent Contractor.
The Agreement will not be construed as creating or constituting a partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship between the parties. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent.
- Compliance with Laws.
Each party will comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and ordinances relating to their performance hereunder.
- Entire Agreement.
The Agreement will constitute the entire agreement between CityGro and you with respect to the subject matter hereof and all prior oral or written agreements, representations or statements with respect to such subject matter are superseded hereby.
