Terms of ServicePrint View
Effective as of October 10, 2022
Welcome to the Finicast Planning, Business Intelligence, and Collaboration in one Platform (“Finicast Platform”)! These Terms of Service (“Terms”) of Finicast, Inc. (“Finicast,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) are an agreement that describes the rights and responsibilities of each Finicast user (“User,” “you,” “your(s)”).
Specifically, these Terms govern how you may access and use: (i) finicast.com, its subdomains, and any other website where these Terms are posted (collectively, the “Website”); (ii) Finicast Platform, which is an online hosted solution; (iii) Finicast’s “Software,” meaning, collectively, our browser extensions, mobile applications (“Mobile App”), other downloadable apps, application programming interfaces (“APIs”), and tools and documentation; and (iv) the services and resources available or enabled via (i) through (iii) (in which (i) through (iv) are each a “Service” and, collectively, our “Services”).
If you are an individual and you access or use the Services for a business purpose or on behalf of a company, principal, or other entity, such as your employer (each, together with its affiliates, an “Organization”), then: (i) these Terms are an agreement between us and you and us and that Organization; (ii) you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that Organization to these Terms (and if you do not have the authority, you may not access or use the Services); (iii) your acceptance of these Terms will bind such Organization to these Terms; (iv) your individual right to access and use the Services may be suspended or terminated (and ownership and administration of your Finicast Account may be transferred) if you cease to be associated with, or cease to use an email address associated with or provisioned by, that Organization; (v) we may disclose information regarding you and your use of the Services with such Organization; (vi) if at any time we are notified that authority or consent by the Organization for you to enter into these Terms or use the Services does not exist or has been withdrawn, we reserve the right to promptly terminate your use of the Services (without any right of refund to the Organization); and (vii) the terms “you” and “your”, as used in these Terms, refer to both you and such Organization. If you sign up for the Services using an email address associated with or provisioned by an Organization, or if an Organization pays fees due in connection with your access to or use of the Services (or reimburses you for payment of such fees), or otherwise, then we may deem you, in our sole discretion, to be accessing and using the Services on behalf of that Organization.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT SECTION 14 OF THESE TERMS CONTAINS PROVISIONS GOVERNING HOW ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN US WILL BE RESOLVED. IN PARTICULAR, IT CONTAINS AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WHICH WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, REQUIRE DISPUTES BETWEEN US TO BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION. UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT: (1) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AND SEEK RELIEF AGAINST US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING; AND (2) YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO PURSUE CLAIMS AND SEEK RELIEF IN A COURT OF LAW AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
1. Our Service
This policy governs the commercial arrangement entered into by web visitors and users (referred to as “User,” “you,” or “yours”) of certain services and software offerings (together, “Services”) provided by Finicast, Inc. (“Finicast,” “we,” or “us”). In order for you to use the Service for a term longer than 6 months, we may require entering into a separate written customer agreement (“Master Services Agreement”) with the Organization. The Master Services Agreement will authorize the Organization to provide you access to the Service, subject to the Master Services Agreement and these Terms.
You may use the Services only if you can form a legally binding contract with us (and on behalf of your Organization, as applicable), and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. To use the Services, you must be at least 13 years old, and in some circumstances even older (please check your local law for the age of digital consent). You represent and warrant that you meet the applicable age requirements and are competent to agree to these Terms, or, if you are unable to form a binding contract under applicable law, you represent and warrant that you have your parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to use the Services, and that your parent or legal guardian is agreeing to these Terms concurrently. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a Finicast User (defined below) who is unable to form a binding contract under applicable law, you are agreeing to these Terms and you are responsible for such Finicast User’s activity on the Services. In our sole discretion, the Services may not be available to any users who were previously removed from a Service.

1.3 Finicast Accounts
Your account on the Services (your “Finicast Account”) gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time. We may maintain different types of Finicast Accounts for different types of users (each such user, a “Finicast User”). You acknowledge that you do not own your Finicast Account.
You may not use another user’s Finicast Account without such user’s permission. When registering with the Services, you must: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself and (b) maintain and promptly update your registration or profile data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Finicast Account, and you must keep your Finicast Account password(s) strong and secure. You agree to notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Finicast Account. Any individual with administrator-level access to your Finicast Account can modify your Finicast Account settings. We will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Finicast Account, or for any changes to your Finicast Account, including your ability to access your Finicast Account or Your Content (defined below), made by any individual with administrator-level access to your Finicast Account.
You may control certain aspects of your Finicast Account profile and how you interact with the Services by changing the settings in your settings page. By providing us with your email address, you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other marketing or advertising messages, such as changes to features of the Services and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences by contacting Finicast Support at firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking the unsubscribe link within each marketing or advertising message. Opting out will not prevent you from receiving Service-related notices.
1.4 Your Content
As between us and you, you (or your licensors) will own any and all information, data, and other content, in any form or medium, that is collected, downloaded, or otherwise received, directly or indirectly, from you (or on your behalf) by or through Finicast (“Your Content”). For an Organizational account, we may assume, in our sole discretion, that all of Your Content belongs to that Organization.
If you are an individual using the Services on behalf of an Organization and are collaborating with other employees or other individuals who have access to Your Content under your Finicast Account, or if you share Your Content with other individuals within or outside of such Organization, the content on your Finicast Account that you make available to such other individuals (as well as other information, such as the names and contact information of other individuals who have access to your workspace(s) or Your Content within the Services) will be visible, accessible, and, depending on their designated level of access, editable by such individuals.
You are solely responsible for managing Your Content within your Finicast Account and you can remove Your Content from your Finicast Account by deleting it. For assistance or information about deletion, you may send a request to email@example.com.
In connection with Your Content, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have all necessary rights, licenses and consents to provide, receive, access and/or use Your Content and any other content you provide, receive, access and/or use through or in connection with the Services; (ii) Your Content does not and will not contain any social security numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, protected health information subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or other information regarding an individual’s medical history, mental or physical condition, or medical treatment or diagnosis by a health care professional; health insurance information; biometric information; passwords for online accounts; credentials to any financial accounts; tax return data; credit reports or consumer reports; any payment card information subject to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard; information subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act or the regulations promulgated under either such law; information subject to restrictions under Applicable Data Protection Laws (defined below) governing personal information of children, including, without limitation, all information about children under thirteen (13) years of age; or any information that falls within any special categories of data (as defined in Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016) (“Restricted Content”); and (iii) Your Content and our use thereof as contemplated by these Terms and the Services will not violate any law or infringe any rights of any third party, including but not limited to any intellectual property rights and privacy rights.
We take no responsibility and assume no liability for Your Content. You shall be solely responsible for Your Content and the consequences of posting it, publishing it, sharing it, deleting or otherwise making it available on the Services. You shall be solely responsible and indemnify us for Your Content.
To the extent you receive our Services, subject to your compliance with these Terms and the terms of the Master Services Agreement, during the term of the Master Services Agreement, we grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right and license to use our Services solely as reasonably necessary for your use of the Services in accordance with these Terms. Some Software may be offered under open source licenses that we will make available to you upon your request. There may be provisions in the open source licenses that expressly override some of these terms.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms and the terms of the Master Services Agreement, during the term of the Master Services Agreement, Finicast grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to download, install and use a copy of the App on a single mobile device that you own or control and to run such copy of the App solely for your own personal or internal business purposes. Furthermore, with respect to any App accessed through or downloaded from the Apple App Store (an “App Store Sourced Application”), you will only use such App Store Sourced Application (a) on an Apple-branded product that runs iOS (Apple’s proprietary operating system) and (b) as permitted by the “Usage Rules” set forth in the Apple App Store Terms of Service. Notwithstanding the first sentence in this section, with respect to any Mobile App accessed through or downloaded from the Google Play store (a “Google Play Sourced Application”), you may have additional license rights with respect to use of such Google Play Sourced Application on a shared basis within your designated family group.
1.6 Service Changes, Suspension, and Termination
These Terms commence on the date when you accept (as described in the preamble above) and remain in full force and effect while you use the Services during the term of the Master Services Agreement, unless terminated earlier in accordance with these Terms. We may change the Services, stop providing the Services or features of the Services to you or to our users generally, or create usage limits for the Services. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Services without notice and liability, without cause or for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of these Terms. You agree that all terminations for cause shall be made in our sole discretion and that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your Finicast Account or license. These Terms, including the license to use the Services granted herein will terminate immediately upon termination or expiration of the Master Services Agreement for any reason. Upon termination of these Terms, your right to use the Services will automatically terminate immediately. You understand that any termination of your assent to these Terms or any other agreement with Finicast will involve deletion of Your Content associated therewith from our databases, if any, within 60 days of our actual notice of termination. Upon termination, all provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive, shall survive termination of this license, including without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitation of liability.

(e) You and Finicast acknowledge that, in the event of any third-party claim that the App Store Sourced Application or your possession and use of that App Store Sourced Application infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, as between Finicast and Apple, Finicast, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by the Agreement.

Finicast reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you agree to fully cooperate with Finicast in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify any of the Finicast Parties for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, or suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with any Services provided hereunder. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your Finicast Account, these Terms, the Master Services Agreement and/or your access to the Services.

12.1 Confidential Information
From time to time, either party to these Terms (the “Disclosing Party”) may disclose or make available to the other (the “Receiving Party”) non-public, proprietary, or confidential information of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information includes any information that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure, including non-public business, product, technology and marketing information. Confidential Information does not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of the Receiving Party's breach of this confidentiality section; (ii) is or becomes available to the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third-party source, provided that such third party is not and was not prohibited from disclosing such Confidential Information; (iii) was in the Receiving Party's possession prior to the Disclosing Party's disclosure thereof; or (iv) was or is independently developed by the Receiving Party without using any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
12.2 Protection and Use of Confidential Information
12.3 Compelled Access or Disclosure
If the Receiving Party is required by applicable law or legal process to disclose any Confidential Information, it shall, prior to making such disclosure, use commercially-reasonable efforts to notify the Disclosing Party of such requirements to afford the Disclosing Party the opportunity to seek, at the Disclosing Party's sole cost and expense, a protective order or other remedy.
12.4 Injunctive Relief
Each of the parties to these Terms acknowledges that the other party will be irreparably harmed if Confidential Information of the other is distributed in breach of this Section, and that such other party would not have an adequate remedy at law in the event of such an actual or threatened breach. Therefore, each of the parties agrees that the other party shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief against any actual or threatened breaches of this Section by the other party without the necessity of showing actual damages or showing that monetary damages would not afford an adequate remedy.
13. Governing Law
You agree that: (i) we will be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Services will be deemed passive that do not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. These Terms will be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to Section 14 of these Terms will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Mateo, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that San Mateo, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
14. Arbitration and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
READ THIS SECTION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
For any dispute with us, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute we have with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in San Mateo, California, unless you and we agree otherwise. If you are using Finicast for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator will include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using Finicast for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. NOTHING IN THIS SECTION WILL BE DEEMED AS PREVENTING US FROM SEEKING INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FROM THE COURTS AS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ACTUAL OR THREATENED INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION, OR VIOLATION OF OUR DATA SECURITY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR OTHER PROPRIETARY RIGHTS.
14.2 Authority of Arbitrator
The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Finicast. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
14.3 Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED OUR SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
14.4 30-Day Right to Opt Out.
You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: firstname.lastname@example.org, within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Finicast username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Finicast Account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
14.6 Survival of Agreement.
This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Finicast.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms or the Master Services Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Finicast makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing Finicast at the following address: 1850 Gateway Drive, Suite 150, San Mateo, CA 94404.

In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Finicast is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by the Agreement, Finicast’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to Finicast at the following address: 1850 Gateway Drive, Suite 150, San Mateo, CA 94404. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Finicast by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
18.5 Entire Agreement/Severability

None of our employees or representatives are authorized to make any modification or addition to these Terms. Any statements or comments made between you and any of our employees or representatives are expressly excluded from these Terms and will not apply to you or us or your use of the Services. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which will remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement will be unenforceable.
18.6 No Waiver
No waiver of any term of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
