Use Rights and Obligations. Company grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, restricted right during the term of this Agreement to access and use, free of charge, the on-line software and materials described in Section 1.1 (the “Trial Service”) solely for non-production, internal, non-commercial evaluation use and/or interoperability testing of the Trial Service with Customer’s products or systems. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer can elect to access and use the Trial Service with respect to Automation Anywhere Enterprise and IQ Bot collectively or individually and this Agreement shall apply in each such case. Customer agrees to operate the Trial Service in compliance with any applicable laws including but not limited to the Privacy Laws (as defined in Section 11). Customer further agrees to operate the Trial Service in compliance with any testing procedures and/or usage guidelines provided by Company.
Trial Service. Automation Anywhere Enterprise is Company’s robotic process automation (RPA) software designed to automate any process end-to-end with cognitive software robots. IQ Bot automates business processes that rely on semi-structured or unstructured data hidden in electronic documents, images, emails, and more. IQ Bot leverages multiple AI techniques to intelligently digitize and extract data to make RPA and/or OCR technology even more effective. Customer can access the IQ Bot and/or Automation Anywhere Enterprise by following the applicable instructions provided by Company.
Additional Term. Customer understands and agrees that, in addition to this Agreement, use of Automation Anywhere Enterprise and/or IQ Bot, and any locally-installed software related to the same, shall also be governed by the applicable license agreement provided with such software.
Customer Data. The Trial Service will allow Customer to enter or disclose materials such as (without limitation) unformatted documents, invoices, mortgage documents, contracts and/or other high volume documents in any business process (“Customer Data”), which may contain Protected Health Information or Personal Data (as defined in Section 11). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that Customer Data does not include Personal Data (but instead uses test data which is not identifiable). Further, Customer, if covered by HIPAA, shall comply with the HIPAA Rules’ requirements with regard to uses and disclosures of Protected Health Information, including the minimum necessary requirements, and shall not use or disclose Protected Health Information in conjunction with the Trial Service. Customer represents and warrants that it has all necessary rights and permissions to provide any Customer Data that it furnishes to Company through the Trial Service and agrees that Customer shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity and legality of all Customer Data. Customer further agrees that Company may retain and use Customer Data, at its sole discretion, for internal training and quality purposes and to enhance, research and analyze Company’s service offerings and models (the “Customer Research Purpose”). Customer also agrees that Company is not obligated to retain or use any Customer Data and that Company shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage or loss of any Customer Data.
Term and Termination. The term of this Agreement will begin when Customer clicks “Accept” (the “Effective Date”) and will end thirty (30) calendar days after the Effective Date, unless extended by Company, in its sole and absolute discretion. In addition, Company may, in its sole and absolute discretion, terminate this Agreement immediately upon written or electronic notice to Customer. Upon termination of this Agreement, Customer will cease all use of the Trial Service and return, or destroy upon Company’s request, all copies of the Trial Service then in Customer’s possession or under Customer’s control. Customer will be solely responsible for any fees, duties, taxes and documentation required to return the Trial Service provided hereunder. The terms in Sections 2 through 11 will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Confidentiality. Customer acknowledges that the Trial Service contains proprietary information and trade secrets of the Company, including without limitation its underlying logic and concepts ("Confidential Information"). Customer shall prevent and refuse to allow any Confidential Information or materials to be disclosed, used, sold, assigned, leased, commercially exploited or marketed in any way or manner by Customer (or Customer’s employees, agents or representatives, if applicable), and Customer shall not permit any such persons to use any portion of the Trial Service for the purpose of, if applicable, deriving the source code of, or defeating any password protections related to, the Trial Service. Without limiting the foregoing, all Confidential Information shall be protected by Customer from disclosure to others with at least the same degree of care as that which is accorded Customer’s own proprietary information, but in no event with less than reasonable care. Company may publicly disclose that the Trial Service is being evaluated and the results of any evaluation, provided that the disclosed information does not specifically identify Customer.
Ownership; Intellectual Property Protection. Except as otherwise expressly stated herein, nothing in this Agreement creates any right of ownership or license (by implication, estoppel, or otherwise) in and to the other party’s intellectual property, and each party will continue to independently own its intellectual property and proprietary information. Company will own all intellectual property rights, title, and interest in and the Test Service and to any and all feedback, ideas, reports, recommendations, analyses, data, evaluation materials, records, designs, inventions, specifications, and other materials created under this Agreement, whether created or gathered by Customer or Company during the course of, or as a result of, this Agreement. Any rights not expressly granted to Customer herein are reserved by Company. Customer agrees to assign to Company all rights it may otherwise have to these tangible and intangible items. Customer agrees not to remove or destroy any proprietary, trademark or copyright markings or notices placed upon or contained within the Trial Service. The placement of a copyright notice on any Trial Service or documentation will not constitute publication or otherwise impair the confidential or trade secret nature of the Trial Service or documentation. Customer agrees not to copy, modify, translate, disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer, create derivative works of, or make any other attempt by any means to discover or obtain proprietary information included in the Trial Service. Any such copies, modifications, compilations, or derivative works that may be prepared will be owned by, and be the sole property of, Company.
No Commercial Obligation. Company may, in its sole discretion, make the Trial Service generally available to its customers or, if already commercially available, continue to make such products and services available to its customers; provided, however, Company will have no obligation to do so. If Company makes the Trial Service generally available to its customers, Customer will be under no obligation to contract for the Trial Service as a result of participation in this Agreement.
