Laser Appraiser, LLC Terms of Service
This agreement (Agreement) is a monthly subscription for the service of accessing the system for used car valuation and inventory management between Laser Appraiser, LLC (Company) and you (Subscriber). This Agreement contains Third Party License Agreements which Subscriber agrees to be bound by executing this Agreement.
1. Services. Company agrees to provide access to the LASER APPRAISER service (Service) which allows the Subscriber to retrieve certain information provided by third party data providers for the Subscriber’s use in appraising used automobiles. The Service allows Subscriber to enter a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) either manually or by capturing a barcode image in order to retrieve general and vehicle-specific valuation and appraisal information from the third party data providers. The Service can retrieve requested data only when sufficient mobile service is available or via the internet on a computer
2. License. Company grants a limited, non-exclusive and non-transferable license for the use of the LASER APPRAISER Service for a single installation per subscription under this agreement. Company and Subscriber agree that the Service is intended for use by Subscriber only and for the purpose of providing valuation information for inventory purchase and management uses within Subscriber's company. Subscriber cannot distribute, publish, share or otherwise profit by use of the Service or obtained data outside the normal operations of the legal business entity of the Subscriber. Subscriber acknowledges that this service is intended for data-only transmissions. Any other use of this service is prohibited without the express written consent of Company.
3. Payment. Payments will be billed to you in U.S. dollars, and your account will be debited when you subscribe and provide your payment information. Subscriber shall pay for Service for the Term of this Agreement via good funds in advance each month. Company may send as a convenience a monthly invoice but in no way is said invoice a prerequisite for payment. Non-payment of monthly services will not terminate this contract but may result in a suspension of service and/or charges to Subscriber's credit card on file with Company. If service is suspended due to non-payment, an administrative charge may be required to reinstate service. Subscriber is responsible for providing their own Vehicle History Report (VHR) credentials, which is separate from the Laser Appraiser service and which is billed by their respective VHR provider. Subscriber shall pay all applicable taxes and agrees to indemnify and hold Company harmless from all taxes other than those based upon Company's income. Subscriber hereby authorizes Company to charge all amounts owed to Company to any credit card on file and Subscriber warrants that it will keep an active credit card on file with Company as long as any money is owed pursuant to the terms hereof.
4. Modifications to the Service and/or Pricing. Company reserves the right to amend the terms contained in this Agreement upon thirty (30) days’ notice to Subscriber. Company may modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. All Service prices are subject to change upon thirty (30) days’ notice. Such notice may be posted on the Company website (www.laserappraiser.com) or in the Service itself. Company is not liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
5. Term. The term of this agreement shall be month to month from the effective date and shall renew automatically on month to month terms thereafter. Your use of the Service automatically renews in advance on a monthly basis, is charged to your credit or debit card on file (or bank draft) and is non-refundable. No refunds or credits will be issued for partial months of Service, upgrades or downgrades, or for months of unused Service. Subscriber may terminate the agreement by giving written notice thirty (30) days prior to the next bill date.
6. Intellectual Property Rights. Subscriber acknowledges that Company has expended substantial time, effort, and funds to create and deliver the Service. All data displayed from the Service are the exclusive property of the respective third party data providers and are protected by applicable patent and copyright filings and will continue to be the exclusive property of the respective third party data providers. Nothing contained in the Agreement or in any Attached schedule shall be deemed to convey to Subscriber or to any other party any ownership or interest in intellectual property or data provided in connection with the Service. Subscriber agrees with the individual third party licensing agreement as described in Attachment “A” attached hereto and incorporated herein by specific reference thereto.
7. Indemnity. Subscriber agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Company and all associated third party data providers (Partners) harmless from and against any and all liabilities, damages, claims, and expenses, including attorney fees incurred by Company and/or Partners arising out of any claims brought against Company and/or Partners relating to the use of the Service by Subscriber, including, but not limited to any negligent acts or omissions, willful misconduct, misrepresentation or breach of the agreement by Subscriber and relating in any way to the Service hereunder.
8. Availability of Service. Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure in its performance under this agreement (except for the payment of money) if and to the extent that such delay or failure is caused by events beyond the reasonable control of the party including, without limitation, acts of God, public enemies, terrorists, labor disputes, equipment malfunctions, material or component shortages, supplier failures or errors, embargoes, rationing, acts of local, state or national governments or public agencies, utility or communication failures or delays, fire, earthquakes, flood, epidemics, riots and strikes. If a party becomes aware that such an event is likely to delay or prevent punctual performance of its own obligations, the party will promptly notify the other party and use its best effort to avoid or remove such causes of nonperformance and to complete delayed jobs whenever such causes are removed. Should a valuation service become unavailable for any reason, Company reserves the right to replace the valuation service with a substantial equivalent valuation service. If no substantial equivalent is reasonably available to Company, than Company may, but not required to, adjust the total subscription price at Company’s sole discretion as an accommodation.
