Terms of Service
FinancialContent Services, Inc. (“CloudQuote”), a Delaware corporation, provides you (“Licensee”) with one or more unique keys (the “Keys”) to permit you to access CloudQuote’s On-Demand services (“Services”) offered by CloudQuote through its application programming interface (“CloudQuote API”) by Licensee in connection with the Purpose, subject to your compliance with these CloudQuote On-Demand Terms of Service (the “Terms” or the “Agreement”).
BY CLICKING ON THE “SIGN UP” BUTTON ON THE ORDER PAGE, LICENSEE AGREES TO ACCEPT AND BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS.
Licensee acknowledges that it has read these Terms carefully before accessing or using Services. Unless otherwise agreed to in another agreement between Licensee and CloudQuote, these Terms contain the complete expression of the rights and limitations associated with Licensee’s use of Services.
These Terms may be updated by CloudQuote at any time, and CloudQuote will undertake reasonable efforts to notify Licensee of such changes. However, Licensee understands and agrees that it is solely responsible for reviewing these Terms from time to time, the most current version of which will be available at http://www.cloudquote.net/terms. Any continued use of Services by Licensee after Licensee has been notified of any changes thereto, or after the amended Terms have been posted online, shall constitute Licensee’s consent and agreement to be bound by such amended Terms. SHOULD LICENSEE OBJECT TO ANY PROVISION OR CONDITION OF THESE TERMS, OR ANY SUBSEQUENT MODIFICATIONS THERETO, OR BECOME DISSATISFIED WITH SERVICES IN ANY WAY, LICENSEE SHOULD IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE USE OF SERVICES.
CloudQuote may monitor Licensee’s use of Services for any reason, including but not limited to: (i) quality assurance; (ii) the improvement of CloudQuote products and services; and (iii) verification of Licensee’s compliance with these Terms. Licensee shall not interfere with such monitoring or otherwise obscure from CloudQuote any aspect of Licensee’s use of Services.
1.1 Services. Subject to Licensee’s continued compliance with these Terms, CloudQuote grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right and subscription to access Services solely to display or otherwise use CloudQuote’s financial, market and company data (“Licensed Data”) via the CloudQuote API for a website or software application (“API Client”)(collectively the “Purpose”).
1.2 Order Page; Subscription Plan. In order to obtain a Key to access Services, Licensee will be required to submit certain information to CloudQuote through an order page (“Order Page”) for the applicable subscription plan (“Plan”) and will, thereafter, manage their account on the CloudQuote website. Licensee represents that all information submitted to CloudQuote on the Order Page is true and accurate. Licensee will identify specific domains in its account which will be authorized to access Services (“Authorized Domains”). Licensee is solely responsible for the security of its account.
1.3 Scope of Subscription Rights.The rights granted by CloudQuote to Licensee for Services are personal to Licensee to use and access Services strictly for the Purpose. Except as otherwise provided herein, no Key may be shared by more than one individual or assigned to new users without the consent of CloudQuote, which may be withheld by CloudQuote in its sole and absolute discretion.
1.5 Usage Limits. The Order Page will set forth any applicable usage limits and quotas (“Usage Limits”), including but not limited to the number of daily requests that each Authorized Domain may receive. CloudQuote may adjust the Usage Limits at its discretion and will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to notify Licensee of any such adjustments. All Usage Limits shall be measured using Eastern Standard Time and will account for daylight savings time. Any attempt by Licensee to circumvent or exceed the Usage Limits for Licensee’s Plan shall constitute a breach of this Agreement, pursuant to which CloudQuote may disable access to the Services and terminate Licensee’s account.
1.6 Upgrades. Licensee understands and acknowledges that CloudQuote has the right to modify and update (or refrain from modifying and updating) Services at any time, provided however, that CloudQuote will notify Licensee of any material changes in the existing functionality or capabilities of Services. CloudQuote shall be under no obligation to provide any updates, improvements or enhancements. All right, title and interest in and to any upgrades, enhancements, and special programming shall vest in and belong to CloudQuote. Licensee specifically acknowledges that some additional services or upgrades may be developed for Services, for which CloudQuote may require the payment of additional fees or other terms and conditions in order for Licensee to be entitled to use such additional services or upgrades. Such services or upgrades shall not be deemed to be Services hereunder absent payment of such fees or compliance with such conditions.
2. Fees and Payment Terms
2.1 Free Accounts. Certain Plans, including but not limited to the On-Demand Free plan, are available to Licensee at no charge. For these Plans, the payment and fee terms below are not applicable.
2.2 Paid Accounts. Certain Plans, including but not limited to the On-Demand Plus plan and the On-Demand Pro plan, will only be available to Licensee in exchange for Licensee’s payment of a non-refundable, monthly usage fee (the “Usage Fee”), which Usage Fee will cover Licensee’s subscription for the following month. Licensee will initially be charged the Usage Fee at the time it registers for its account. Upon registration, Licensee will be required to submit valid credit card information that will automatically be charged for the Usage Fee at the time of such submission and on a monthly basis thereafter. Usage Fees shall be processed on a reoccurring basis by CloudQuote and automatically charged to Licensee’s credit card. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. CloudQuote may deny access to Services if the Usage Fee is not timely paid. Any amount not paid when due will bear interest until paid at a rate equal to the lesser of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law.
2.3 Pricing. The Usage Fee applicable to Licensee’s Plan will be in the amount and on the terms listed on CloudQuote’s then-current pricing schedule, which is available at http://www.cloudquote.net. CloudQuote’s pricing schedule is subject to change from time-to-time at CloudQuote’s discretion.
2.4 Taxes. The Usage Fee is exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, including value-added, sales, use, or withholding taxes assessable by any local, state or federal jurisdiction that may be levied upon the Services or Licensee’s use thereof, and Licensee shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, and duties (excluding only taxes imposed on or measured by CloudQuote’s income) and will hold CloudQuote harmless for the payment of any and all such taxes.

THIS INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF PROFITS, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY MATERIALS OR SERVICES FURNISHED HEREUNDER, EVEN IF CLOUDQUOTE HAS BEEN ADVISED, KNOWS, OR SHOULD KNOW OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL CLOUDQUOTE’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO LICENSEE FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY MATERIALS OR SERVICES FURNISHED HEREUNDER EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT THAT WAS ACTUALLY PAID TO CLOUDQUOTE BY LICENSEE UNDER THE AGREEMENT DURING THE 6 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE DATE SUCH CLAIM AROSE. THE LIMITATIONS STATED IN THIS SECTION APPLY WHETHER THE ASSERTED LIABILITY OR DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BREACH OF WARRANTY), TORT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE GROUND.

11.1 Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend and hold CloudQuote and its affiliates, distributors, resellers, licensors, customers, members, managers, employees, agents, representatives, successors and permitted assigns, harmless from and against any and all claims, suits, actions, proceedings, damages, costs, liabilities, losses, fines, penalties, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable legal fees) (collectively, “Losses”) arising out of, relating to or resulting from (i) the use of, access to, or reliance on Services, CloudQuote’s website, or Licensed Data by Licensee or any other third party whose access to or reliance on Services, CloudQuote’s website, or Licensed Data is made available, directly or indirectly, by, through or because of Licensee; (ii) any negligent or willful act or omission of Licensee; or (iii) Licensee’s breach of this Agreement.

Such persons will be informed of and will agree to the provisions of this Section 12.1, and Licensee will remain responsible for any unauthorized use or disclosure of CloudQuote Confidential Information by any of them.
13.1 Licensee Systems. Licensee will be responsible for providing any hardware, devices or applications necessary to access Services and any of CloudQuote’s websites.

All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of San Mateo County, California, USA, and Licensee and CloudQuote consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts. The Agreement, and any documents referenced herein, constitute the entire Agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings or communications between the parties, whether written or oral. A waiver of any default by either party is not a waiver of any subsequent or different default by either party. If any provision of the Agreement or the application thereof to a party shall be declared void, illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of the Agreement shall be valid and enforceable to the extent permitted by applicable law. In such event, the parties shall use their best efforts to replace the invalid or unenforceable provision. Licensee shall not assign or otherwise transfer any of Licensee’s rights or delegate Licensee’s obligations hereunder, and any such attempt is null and void. No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by the Agreement. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT HAS READ THESE TERMS OR SERVICE, UNDERSTANDS THEM AND WILL BE BOUND BY THE PROVISIONS CONTAINED HEREIN. LICENSEE FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THESE TERMS OF SERVICE MAY NOT BE AMENDED BY LICENSEE WITHOUT THE EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT OF CLOUDQUOTE.
