However, Your Creative Penguin otherwise has no obligation to monitor or review any content submitted to the Service.

2.7. Marketing and Advertising. Your Creative Penguin may identify you, by name and logo, as a Daniel customer on Daniel’s website and on other promotional materials. Any goodwill arising from the use of your name and logo will inure to your benefit.

3. Customer Data
3.2 Certified Advisors. If you have partnered with a Certified Advisor that participates in our Daniel Certified Advisor Program, we may monitor that advisor’s activity within your Membership and make information related to your Membership available to the advisor based on your express authorization.
3.3 Aggregated and Anonymous Data. We may monitor use of the Service by all of our customers and use any data gathered in an aggregate and anonymous manner. You agree that we may use and publish such information, provided that such information does not specifically identify you or any of your customers.
3.4 Security. We will maintain commercially reasonable and appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect Customer Data. For purposes of complying with any relevant privacy, cybersecurity or breach notification laws, you agree that the processing of Customer Data by Your Creative Penguin will all be deemed to have occurred in the state of Florida.
3.5 Data Storage. Subject to Section 6.3 below concerning the cancellation or termination of your Membership, we agree that most of your Customer Data will remain on our servers and be accessible to you while your Membership remains active and in good standing. However, certain types or categories of data are only maintained on our servers for a finite period of time. GPS waypoints used to plot breadcrumb trails are stored for six months. Waypoints used to identify location at the time of clock in time / clock out time are stored indefinitely.
3.6. Data Loss. You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your Content, may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over the Internet to various networks or devices; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting to the Internet or to various networks or devices. Your Creative Penguin is not responsible for the restoration of any Content or Customer Data lost as a result of these Internet transfers, your actions or your use of any and all “delete” functions within the system, nor through deletion of any data by you within any systems which integrate and transfer data to our system, including, without limitation, QuickBooks. Your Creative Penguin, at its sole discretion, may assist in retrieving and restoring deleted information and may choose to charge and bill you for the associated services, including time and materials involved.
4. Account Management
4.1. Keep Your Password Secure. If you have been issued an account by Your Creative Penguin in connection with your use of the Services, you are responsible for safeguarding your password and any other credentials used to access that account. You, and not Your Creative Penguin, are responsible for any activity occurring in your account (other than activity that Your Creative Penguin is directly responsible for which is not performed in accordance with your instructions), whether or not you authorized that activity. If you become aware of any unauthorized access to your account, you should notify Your Creative Penguin immediately. Accounts may not be shared and may only be used by one individual per account.
4.2. Keep Your Details Accurate. Your Creative Penguin occasionally sends notices to the email address registered with your account. You agree that you must keep your email address and, where applicable, your contact details and payment details associated with your account current and accurate. Accounts are controlled by the entity whose email address is registered with the account.
4.3. Remember to Backup. You are responsible for maintaining, protecting, and making backups of your Content. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Your Creative Penguin will not be liable for any failure to store, or for loss or corruption of, your Content.
5. User Requirements and Acceptable Uses
5.1. Legal Status. If you are an individual, you may only use the Service if you are old enough to have the power to form a contract with Your Creative Penguin. The Service is not intended for use by individuals less than 13 years old. If you are under 13 years old or you are not old enough to have the power to form a contract with Your Creative Penguin, you may not use the Service. If you are not an individual, you warrant that you are validly formed and existing under the laws of your jurisdiction of formation, that you have full power and authority to enter into these Terms, and that you have duly authorized your agent to bind you to these Terms. You represent and warrant that you will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to your use of the Service.

(a) You may not purchase, use, or access the Service for the purpose of building a competitive product or service or for any other competitive purposes.
(b) You may not misuse our Service by interfering with its normal operation, or attempting to access them using a method other than through the interfaces and instructions that we provide.

(g) You may not transmit any viruses, malware, or other types of malicious software, or links to such software, through the Service.
(h) You may not engage in abusive or excessive usage of the Service, which is usage significantly in excess of average usage patterns that adversely affects the speed, responsiveness, stability, availability, or functionality of the Service for other users. Your Creative Penguin will endeavor to notify you of any abusive or excessive usage to provide you with an opportunity to reduce such usage to a level acceptable to Your Creative Penguin.
(i) You may not use the Service to infringe the intellectual property rights of others, or to commit an unlawful activity.
(j) Unless authorized by Your Creative Penguin in writing, you may not resell or lease the Services.
(k) If your use of the Service requires you to comply with industry-specific regulations applicable to such use, you will be solely responsible for such compliance, unless Your Creative Penguin has agreed with you otherwise. You may not use the Service in a way that would subject Your Creative Penguin to those industry-specific regulations without obtaining Your Creative Penguin’s prior written agreement. For example, you may not use the Service to collect, protect, or otherwise handle “protected health information” (as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, 45 C.F.R. §160.103) without entering into a separate business associate agreement with Your Creative Penguin that permits you to do so.
(l) To the extent that you use the Service to process credit card payments from your customers, you agree not to keep credit card information in plain text or unencrypted form in the body of notes fields, custom fields, to dos, calls, etc. within the Service. All credit card data must be stored within secure credit card forms. It is your responsibility to comply with all credit card security standards, including but not limited to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (“PCI-DSS”).
(m) YOU MAY NOT USE YOUR MEMBERSHIP TO COLLECT, MANAGE OR PROCESS SENSITIVE INFORMATION. Your Creative Penguin WILL NOT INCUR ANY LIABILITY THAT MAY RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE TO COLLECT OR MANAGE SENSITIVE INFORMATION.
(n) You have the ability to send text or email messages through the Service (the “Communication Services”). To the extent that you use the Communication Services, you agree to comply with the United States CAN-SPAM Act. You further acknowledge that we do not control the content, messages or information found in your communications and that we will not incur any liability with regards to your use of Communication Services or any actions resulting therefrom.
6. Suspension and Termination of Services
6.1. By You. For security reasons, including without limitation, fraudulent cancellations, we cannot accept a request for termination via email. All requests for termination must be initiated verbally by contacting a Your Creative Penguin customer service representative. The representative will then email you a short online cancellation form. Once you complete the form, your Membership will be terminated and your account will be immediately closed. Cancelling a credit card does not constitute a cancellation.
6.2. Termination in the Middle of a Billing Cycle. If you terminate a Membership in the middle of a billing cycle, you will not receive a refund for any period of time you did not use in that billing cycle unless you are terminating these Terms (a) because we have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after you have so notified us in writing, or (b) a refund is required by law.
6.3. By Your Creative Penguin. Except for non-payment of Membership fees (discussed in Section 1.6 above), Your Creative Penguin may terminate your Membership at the end of a billing cycle by providing at least 30 days’ prior written notice to you. Your Creative Penguin may suspend performance or terminate your Membership because (a) you have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after Your Creative Penguin has so notified you in writing, (b) you cease your business operations or become subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within 90 days, or (c) you inflict verbal, written or other abuse (including threats) on any Your Creative Penguin employee or representative or any other Daniel member. Additionally, Your Creative Penguin may limit or suspend the Service to you if you fail to comply with these Terms, or if you use the Service in a way that causes legal liability to us or disrupts others’ use of the Service. Your Creative Penguin may also suspend providing the Service to you if we are investigating suspected misconduct by you. If we limit, suspend, or terminate your use of the Service, we will endeavor to give you advance notice and an opportunity to export a copy of your Content from the Service. However, there may be time sensitive situations where Your Creative Penguin may decide that we need to take immediate action without notice. Your Creative Penguin will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of any limitation or suspension under this Section as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action. Any of your Content that is stored in a canceled or terminated account will be deleted after 60 days from the cancellation date. After that time, Your Creative Penguin has no obligation to retain your Content.
6.4. Further Measures. If Your Creative Penguin stops providing the Service to you because you have repeatedly or egregiously breached these Terms, Your Creative Penguin may take measures to prevent the further use of the Service by you, including blocking your IP address.
7. Changes and Updates
7.1. Changes to Terms. Your Creative Penguin in its sole discretion may change these Terms at any time for any of a variety of reasons, such as to reflect changes in applicable law or updates to the Service, and to account for new services or functionality. The most current version will always be posted on the Daniel website. If an amendment is material, as determined in Your Creative Penguin’s sole discretion, Your Creative Penguin will notify you by email. Notice of amendments may also be posted to Your Creative Penguin’s blog or upon your login to your account. Changes will be effective no sooner than the day they are publicly posted. In order for certain changes to become effective, applicable law may require Your Creative Penguin to obtain your consent to such changes, or to provide you with sufficient advance notice of them. If you do not want to agree to any changes made to the terms for the Service, you should stop using the Service, because by continuing to use the Service you indicate your agreement to be bound by the updated terms.
7.2. Changes to Services. Your Creative Penguin is constantly working to change and improve the Service. In that regard, Your Creative Penguin may add, alter, or remove functionality from the Service at any time without prior notice. Your Creative Penguin may also limit, suspend, or discontinue the Service at its discretion. If Your Creative Penguin discontinues the Service, we will give you reasonable advance notice to provide you with an opportunity to export a copy of your Content from the Service. Your Creative Penguin may remove content from the Service at any time in our sole discretion, although we will endeavor to notify you before we do that if it materially impacts you and if practicable under the circumstances.
7.3. Beta Services. From time to time, we may provide beta access to new features associated with the Service or completely new subscription based services (the “Beta Services”) to you. With respect to these services, (a) the Beta Services are provided “as is” and without warranty of any kind, (b) we may suspend, limit, or terminate the Beta Services for any reason at any time without notice, and (c) we will not be liable to you for damages of any kind related to your use of the Beta Services. If we inform you of additional terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Beta Services, those will apply as well. We may require your participation to be confidential, and we may also require you to provide feedback to us about your use of the Beta Services. You agree that we own all rights to use and incorporate your feedback into our services and products, without payment or attribution to you.
7.4. Monthly Rate Changes. Daniel reserves the right to alter the price of the subscription. The subscriber will be notified with a proper 30 day notice to the increase or decrease in subscription price.

8.4. Consumers. We acknowledge that the laws of certain jurisdictions provide legal rights to consumers that may not be overridden by contract or waived by those consumers. If you are such a consumer, nothing in these Terms limits any of those consumer rights.
8.5. Businesses. If you are a business, you will indemnify and hold harmless Your Creative Penguin and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from all liabilities, damages, and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of a third party claim regarding or in connection with (a) the unauthorized or illegal use of the Service by you, (b) your noncompliance with or breach of this Agreement, (c) your use of third-party products, or (d) the unauthorized use of the Service by any other person using your account information.

9.2. Entire Agreement. These Terms (including any applicable Additional Terms) constitute the entire agreement between you and Your Creative Penguin, and they supersede any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, terms and conditions, written or oral, concerning its subject matter.
