We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users, and these different accounts may have different features available to them. For example, we offer 1) a free version account (“Free Account”), and 2) several types of paid accounts (each a “Paid Account”). If you access the Service using a Free Account, then you may use the Service in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement for the period designated in the ordering document or online order that specifies the features of the Service to be provided hereunder to you, including any addenda and supplements thereto (each, an “Order Form”) , or as otherwise allowed by Finale.

Also Note: This is not intended to provide legal advice. We recommend you consult your own legal counsel to check that whatever you add to your policy documents matches your needs.

We also contractually bind them to keep any information we share with them confidential and to process your personal data only according to our instructions.
Finale takes commercially reasonable precautions including technical, organizational and physical measures to help safeguard against the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration and unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, the personal information we process.

If your organization requires further detail on our security practices, please reach out to us at [email protected].
While Finale implements industry standard security measures that take into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing, as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your data for improper purposes.

b. Termination. Finale, in its sole discretion, may terminate or suspend your account at any time if, in Finale’s sole discretion, you violate any term or provision of this Agreement, without liability to you. Either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason or for no reason, by giving the other party written notice of termination, effective thirty (30) days from the date of notice
c. Refunds. The subscribed-for fees are non-refundable. In the event of termination, Customer agrees to pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the Term of all Order Forms.

d. Survival. Sections 1(g), 3, 4 (to the extent not satisfied), 5, 9(d), 9(e), and 11-16 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, you shall cease all use of the Service and you shall destroy and remove from all computers, hard drives, networks, and other storage media all copies of the Service and any the data, and shall so certify, if requested, to Finale that such actions have occurred.
e. Data Retention. Finale will make your User Content available for you to export from the Service for fifteen (15) business days following the effective date of the termination (“Availability Period”). Upon conclusion of the Availability Period, Finale may begin to delete your User Content from its systems.
“Confidential Information” of either party will mean information disclosed to or learned by the receiving party concerning the disclosing party’s business, customers, products, proposed products, plans, inventions, processes and techniques, which is clearly labelled as “Confidential” or “Proprietary.” Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public through no fault or breach on the part of the receiving party; (ii) the receiving party obtains from a third party rightfully, without breach of non-disclosure obligations and without restriction on disclosure; or (iii) the disclosing party regularly provides to others without restriction on disclosure.

Both parties acknowledge that the breach of this Section 9 could cause great or irreparable injury to the disclosing party and that pecuniary compensation would not afford adequate relief, and therefore, that upon any such unauthorized disclosure by the receiving party, the disclosing party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.

15. GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER
a. Governing Law. You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall 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 Santa Clara County, 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.

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 shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Finale 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.
c. Jury Trial Waiver. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND FINALE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.
a. No Agency. Neither party has the ability to bind the other party to any agreements or other obligations and will not attempt to do so. Finale and you are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement creates any partnership, joint venture or agency relationship. As between each other, each party is fully responsible for all persons and entities it employs or retains.
b. Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Finale without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void
