These terms and conditions, as well as those in the attached Prototype Description (collectively, the “Terms”) apply to any access or use by you or your organization (“you”, “your”) of the Carbyne software or cloud service prototype and documentation identified in the attached Prototype Description (collectively, “Prototype”). “Carbyne”, “us”, “we” and “our” refer to Carbyne, Inc. (if you are in the Americas) and Carbyne Ltd. (if you are elsewhere). BY ACCESSING OR USING THE PROTOTYPE IN ANY WAY, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND THAT YOU ARE AUTHORIZED TO DO SO ON BEHALF OF YOUR ORGANIZATION.

  1. Testing. By accessing or otherwise using the Prototype, you agree to use and test the Prototype as set forth in these Terms only. You agree to start testing the Prototype promptly after we make it available to you and to install any updates thereto. If you and we have agreed to perform specific testing activities in addition  to those in these Terms, such activities will be set out in writing between you and  us.
  2. Prototype License or Access. We grant you a revocable, limited, non-exclusive, non- transferable, personal license to install and use a single instance of the Prototype in object code only and at the original delivery location for testing and evaluation purposes only.  If the Prototype is a cloud service (a “Service”), we grant you access to the Service for 30 days. You agree that you shall not: (a) use the Prototype for any production use or to obtain any commercial benefit from the Prototype; (b) reproduce, modify, translate or create any derivative work of, or sell, sublicense, rent, lease, distribute or otherwise transfer all or any portion of the Prototype, (c) reverse engineer, decompile, use for competitive analysis, reverse assemble or otherwise attempt to gain access to the source code of all or any portion of the Prototype, (d) display or disclose the Prototype to any person other than your employees or contractors who you have authorized to access the Prototype in accordance with these Terms; (e) use the Prototype for third-party training, time- sharing or service bureau use, or use any part of the Prototype, including third party software, independently from the Prototype as a whole; (f) remove, alter, cover or obfuscate any copyright notices or other proprietary rights notices placed or embedded on or in the Prototype; or (g) otherwise use the Prototype except as  expressly allowed under these Terms. Except for the license or access and use rights granted this Section 2, we  and our licensors retain all right, title and interest in and to the Prototype and any  additions or modifications thereto.
  3. Data & Feedback. You agree to provide data and feedback to us for and about the Prototype, including perceived strengths and weaknesses, areas for improvement and the reporting of bugs. We may use the data and feedback you provide (a) to improve accuracy, quality and/or to advance features; and/or (b) for research and development, including to improve the products and services we offer and to develop new products and services. No data that identifies you or individuals will be made available publicly by us and any use of personal data remains subject to our Privacy Policy (which can currently be found at https://carbyne.com/privacy-policy/). You irrevocably waive any intellectual property rights in any improvements or developments that we may make based on your feedback, use of the Prototype and/or data and you grant us a perpetual and irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide  license to the same. You accept full responsibility for any data or materials which you use with the Prototype, and you must ensure that your use will not infringe any third party intellectual property rights or other rights.
  4. Confidentiality. Each party may use the other party’s Confidential Information solely for the purposes of the activities contemplated in these Terms. The receiving party shall use all commercially reasonable measures to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information and shall assist the disclosing party in remedying any such disclosure. “Confidential Information” means any non-public information that the disclosing party identifies in writing prior to disclosure as confidential or that a reasonable person should recognize to be confidential. The Prototype, feature descriptions and other documents we provide under these Terms are our Confidential Information. Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) the receiving party can prove it already knows at the time of disclosure; (ii) becomes publicly known through no fault of the receiving party; (iii) the receiving party receives from a third party without restriction on disclosure; (iv) the disclosing party approves for release by written consent; or (v) is required to be disclosed by law. Neither party will disclose the terms or existence of these Terms or our Prototype program unless otherwise agreed in writing.
  5. Cloud Service Use and Data. If the Prototype is a Service, you may permit your employees, consultants, agents, and contractors to access and use the Service in accordance with these Early Access Terms (“Authorized Users”), provided you are responsible for: (i) specifying the level of access to the Service for each Authorized User, (ii) ensuring all Authorized Users use the Service only in support of your testing, (iii) any unauthorized use of the Service or any breach of these Early Access Terms by an Authorized User, including any misuse of authentication credentials associated with your access and use of the  Service (“Credentials”). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Credentials, including those used by any Authorized Users. You will promptly notify us of any confirmed or suspected misuse of the Service or Credentials, or of any security incident related to the Services.  You are also solely responsible for the content of all data you process using the Service (“User Data”). You accept full  responsibility for any User Data which you transmit or provide to us or store on the Service. When you use the Service, you must ensure that your use will not infringe any third party intellectual property rights or other rights (for example, copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, or confidentiality); this includes without limitation ensuring that you have the right to use any materials that you submit for use by the Service. We do not and will not assume any obligations with respect to User Data or your use of the Service. We recommend you use data that is anonymized, pseudonymized, or “dummy data”, where it is not feasible for us to reasonably re-identify any individuals from such data. If User Data contains personal data, you shall comply with necessary legal requirements under applicable data privacy laws to enable lawful transfer of personal data to us.
  6. Competitive Developments. You will not use the Prototype, or any information derived from it, to develop, or aid a third party to develop, competing technology. 
  7. Term and Termination. The license or access granted above will automatically end thirty days after we first deliver any part of the Prototype to you, unless we agree to extend it in writing, or these Terms are terminated sooner as described below.  Either party may terminate these Terms at any time and for any reason upon written notice. When the license or access or these Terms terminate, you will: (a) cease use of the Prototype and Confidential Information; (b) return or destroy, at our option, each physical component of the Prototype and Confidential Information and all copies thereof to us; and (c) certify such return or destruction in writing to us upon request. Terms herein that by their nature are intended to survive termination shall  continue after termination.

In the event of any threatened or actual breach of any provision of these Terms, either party may be entitled to an injunction or other equitable remedies, in addition to any and all remedies available at law. These Terms and any separate, mutually agreed description of testing activities constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and these Terms supersede any prior or collateral agreements. These Terms may not be amended, and no waiver shall be effective, except by a writing signed by both  parties. If a court or similar authority determines any provision of these Terms to be unenforceable or invalid, such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions or these Terms as a whole.
