An Enterprise Customer will have an Account that allows these arrangements to be managed and can have Users in their own right.

Client must promptly notify Supplier of any disclosure, loss or unauthorised use of any Login Credentials.

All rights, title and interest in and to the Client Data belong to the Client or third persons (including Users, persons and Organisations) whether posted and/or uploaded by Client or made available on the Buildxact Services by Supplier.

By uploading Client Data to the Platform, Client authorises Supplier to process the Client Data and generate other data and information from Client Data.

Information including Data supplied by other third parties under license to Buildxact or generated or created by Buildxact Services is the result of algorithms and processes that are the exclusive property of Buildxact or of a Licensor of Buildxact and the Client is permitted to use such Data in the normal conduct of its business but not for other than the Approved Purposes under these Terms. Buildxact or its licensors has right
title and interest in all Information and Data other than Client Data and Personal Data. For the avoidance of doubt the Client does not have the right to control, share, exploit or commercially sell or deal with Data for any other purpose than defined herein except the Client has the right to use the subset limited to the Client Data. 

Buildxact may offer additional Services that we expect would be helpful to you our Clients, or to your customers and some of these Services may wish to include some Client Data and or Personal Data. If we propose to offer these Services that rely on your Client Data and/or Personal Data, your permission will first be sought on an Opt-In basis. You will have the option to accept or decline to participate and if you decline such data will not be used.

The Client is responsible for ensuring that:

  1. the Client and any of the Users associated with the Account do not create, transmit, display or make otherwise available any Data that violates the terms of these Terms, the rights of Supplier, other Clients or Users, persons or organisations or is harmful (for example viruses, worms, malware and other destructive codes), offensive, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, pornographic, obscene, invasive of another’s privacy, defamatory, hateful or otherwise unlawful; and
  2. the Client and all of the Users associated with the Account have the necessary rights to enter the Client Data and use the Data, including to insert it into the Platform and process it by means of the Account.

5.2 No Guarantee of Accuracy

Supplier does not guarantee any accuracy with respect to any information contained in any Data, and strongly recommends that you think carefully about what you transmit, submit or post to or through the Buildxact Services. You understand that all information contained in Data is to be used only for Approved Purposes under these Terms and its accuracy and use is the sole responsibility of the person from whom
such Client Data originated. This means that Client, and not Supplier, is entirely responsible for all Data that is uploaded, entered, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the Buildxact Services, as well as for any actions taken by the Supplier or other Clients or Users as a result of such Data.

5.3 Unlawful Client Data 

Supplier is not obliged to pre-screen, monitor or filter any Data or acts of its processing by the Client in order to discover any unlawful nature therein. However, if such unlawful Data or the action of its unlawful processing is discovered or brought to the attention of Supplier or if there is reason to believe that certain Data is unlawful, Supplier has the right to:

  1. notify the Client of such unlawful Data;
  2. deny its publication on the Website or its insertion to the System;
  3. demand that the Client bring the unlawful Data into compliance with these Terms and applicable law;
  4. temporarily or permanently remove the unlawful Data from the Website or Account, restrict access to it or delete it.

If Supplier is presented convincing evidence that the Data is not unlawful, Supplier may, at its sole discretion, restore such Data, which was removed from the Website or Account or access to which was restricted.

In addition, in the event Supplier believes in its sole discretion Data violates applicable laws, rules or regulations or these Terms, Supplier may (but has no obligation), to remove such Data at any time with or without notice.

The Client indemnifies the Supplier from any actions that arise out of the Client entering unlawful Data into the Buildxact Services as per clause 10.

5.4 Compelled Disclosure

Supplier may disclose a Client’s confidential information including Personal Information to the extent compelled by law to do so. In such instance, Supplier will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Client with prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and Client shall provide reasonable assistance, at its cost, if Client wishes to contest the disclosure. If Supplier is compelled by law to disclose Client’s confidential information as part of a civil proceeding to which Supplier is a party, and Client is not contesting the disclosure, Client will reimburse Supplier for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that confidential information.
