SUBSCRIPTIONS/LICENSE. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the subscription membership level purchased, AuditScripts hereby grants to User a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use certain materials/content (including toolkits, policies, scripts, guides, checklists, questionnaires, videos and software) accessible from the Website during the applicable term of the subscription (“Services”). The applicable subscription plans, associated fees and term of the subscription will be selected by the User during the User’s registration with the Website or during any subsequent purchase. Subscription plans and their associated fees and Services can be found here. By agreeing to grant such license, AuditScripts does not obligate itself to maintain the Services in its present form. AuditScrpts may upgrade, modify, change or enhance the Services upon reasonable prior notice to User (unless the change is of critical business importance or outside AuditScripts’ control, in which case AuditScripts will explain the reason for the changes as soon as is reasonably practicable).
MULTI-USER SUBSCRIPTIONS. A User that is an entity, organization, or institution may purchase a subscription plan called a “Multi-User Subscription.” Under such plan, the User may assign individuals who are employees of User (“Authorized End-Users”) to access the Services. If a User desires to assign an individual who is not an employee of the Company, than User must obtain written consent from AuditScripts prior to such assignment. Users will remain liable for all acts or omissions of its Authorized End-Users with respect to access and use of the Services; furthermore, and for the avoidance of doubt, such User will be responsible for ensuring that its Authorized End Users remain fully compliant with these Terms. The number of Authorized End Users under any single Multi-User Subscription may not exceed the number of permitted seats paid under the Multi-User Subscription (“Maximum Seats”). The Authorized End User’s identifier must not be of a generic nature. An example of a permissible unique identifier is John Doe and [email protected]; examples of impermissible generic identifiers include the following: [email protected] or [email protected] A User purchasing a Multi-User Subscription must designate an administrator (“Master Administrator”). A Master Administrator shall have reporting access and management tools and may substitute Authorized End Users not to exceed the number of Maximum Seats.
LICENSE RESTRICTIONS. The Services provided in connection with this Website, the Website as a whole and the materials/content accessible in connection with the Services are intended solely for the internal business use of the User. AuditScripts reserves all rights not expressly granted herein. Except as expressly authorized in this Agreement, User shall not: (a) use, copy, reproduce, export, distribute, rent, lease, sublicense, disseminate, transmit, post, merge or transfer any portion of the Website, or its underlying Services, materials, content, software, toolkits, tools, guides, checklists, questionnaires, or databases or any substantial portion thereof; or (b) modify or create derivative works of the Website, Services, materials, content, software, toolkits, tools guides, checklists, questionnaires, or databases or any substantial portion thereof. User agrees to prevent any unauthorized copying of the Website, the Services or its materials/content. User also agrees not to transfer any access privileges to the Services or its materials/content to any third parties.
CONFIDENTIALITY. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” shall include the materials/content (including toolkits, policies, scripts, guides, checklists, questionnaires, and software) accessible from the Website. User shall treat all Confidential Information as confidential and use this information solely for the internal business use of the User. User shall disclose the Confidential Information only to such personnel of User as is required in order to carry out the purpose for which the Confidential Information was provided to User. User agrees to undertake all necessary and appropriate steps to ensure that the secrecy and confidentiality of the Confidential Information in its possession will be maintained, including advising its employees, agents and representatives of the obligations hereunder. The standard of care to be used in the performance of the obligations set forth in this Agreement shall be the strictest of standards to ensure full compliance with the provision thereof notwithstanding the standard of care utilized by a party, if any, in treating its own information which it does not disclose.
PASSWORD/ACCOUNT SETTINGS. When you create a profile/account and register with AuditScripts, you will also be asked to choose a password for purposes of accessing the Website and its Services and communicating/posting through this profile/account. User agrees that the username and password are to be used only by User, or any Authorized End-Users. The use of User’s username and password by other individuals is a violation of this Agreement. User is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the username and password that you designate during the registration process, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password. You shall prevent unauthorized use of the Website using your password. You agree to (a) immediately notify AuditScripts of any unauthorized use of your username or password or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. AuditScripts will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. All assignments of your password shall be void.
FEES/PAYMENT METHODS. AuditScripts charges fees for its subscriptions (https://auditscripts.wpengine.com/subscriptions/). User agrees to pay the corresponding fees for each subscription ordered. AuditScripts reserves the right to change the subscription fee with respect to a renewal term, and shall post such change on the Website. Unless otherwise expressly stated, all fees are stated in United States dollars.
AuditScripts utilizes PayPal (https://www.paypal.com/), a third party company, to handle credit card and payment transactions. AuditScripts is not responsible for such transaction. No sensitive payment information (e.g. credit card numbers, bank account numbers, etc.) is sent to our servers. Therefore the burden of PCI Compliance rests solely on PayPal.
TERMINATION/CANCELLATION. The license granted pursuant to this Agreement shall automatically terminate (i) upon expiration of the applicable subscription term or (ii) in the event User breaches any provision of this Agreement. User may terminate or cancel the license granted by discontinuing use of the Website and providing written notice to AuditScripts. All license fees are non-refundable and non-cancellable, even if termination occurs prior to the expiration of the subscription term. You agree that AuditScripts may, in its sole discretion, terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Website with or without notice and for any suspected breach of this Agreement or any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, User shall immediately cease all use of the Website, and AuditsScripts may immediately deactivate or delete User’s account and all related information and files and/or bar any further access to such files or the Website.

THE EXISTENCE OF MULTIPLE CLAIMS WILL NOT ENLARGE THIS LIMIT. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CLAIMS AND DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE MISUSE OF THE SERVICES BY SUBSCRIBER AND/OR ITS AUTHORIZED END USERS.
INDEMNIFICATION. You agree to indemnify and hold AuditScripts, its owners, members, managers, affiliates, subsidiaries, sponsors, advertisers, licensors, employees, agents, representatives and independent contractors, harmless from any loss, liability, damages, claims, actions, or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Website in violation of this Agreement and/or arising from any use of this Website, its Services or the materials/content (including toolkits, policies, scripts, guides, checklists, questionnaires, videos and software) accessible from the Website.
NOTICE UNDER DEFEND TRADE SECRETS ACT. An individual shall not be held criminally or civilly liable under any Federal or State trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that (a) is made (i) in confidence to a Federal, State, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney; and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (b) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal.

By using the Website you expressly agree that if there is any dispute arising out of the Website and/or the products, or in the event of any judicial action arising directly, indirectly, or otherwise in connection with, out of, related to or from this Agreement or any transaction covered hereby or otherwise arising in connection with the relationship between the parties, regardless of whether such action is brought under contract, tort, statute or otherwise, any such dispute shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to its conflict of law provisions, and you expressly agree and consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts of the State of Florida, in Sarasota County, for the resolution of any such dispute. The aforementioned choice of venue is intended by the parties to be mandatory and not permissive in nature, thereby precluding the possibility of litigation between the parties with respect to or arising out of this Agreement in any jurisdiction other than that specified in this paragraph. You hereby waive any right you may have to assert the doctrine of forum non conveniens or similar doctrine or to object to venue with respect to any proceeding brought in accordance with this paragraph, and stipulate that the State and Federal courts located in the County of Sarasota, State of Florida shall have in personam jurisdiction and venue over you for the purpose of litigating any dispute, controversy, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement.

INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. User acknowledges that a breach of any confidentiality or proprietary rights provision of these Terms may cause AuditScripts irreparable damage, for which the award of damages would not be adequate compensation. Consequently, AuditScripts may seek an injunction to prevent User from taking any and all acts in violation of those provisions, which remedy shall be cumulative and not exclusive, and AuditScripts may seek the entry of an injunction enjoining any breach or threatened breach of those provisions, in addition to any other relief to which AuditScripts may be entitled at law or in equity.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between you and AuditScripts regarding the use of the Website.

Any cause of action brought by you against AuditScripts or its officers, partners, directors, managers, members, shareholders, distributors, affiliates, subsidiaries, sponsors, advertisers, licensors, employees, agents, representatives or independent contractors, must be instituted within one year after the cause of action arises or be deemed forever waived and barred.
ASSIGNMENT. You may not assign your rights and obligations under these Terms to any third party, and any purported attempt to do so will be null and void. AuditScripts may freely assign its rights and obligations under these Terms.
SEVERABILITY. If any part of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion will be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect.
