7Q Terms of Service
Welcome to 7Q!
Thanks for using our Services and Products (“Services and Products”). The Services and Products are provided by 7Q Solutions (“7Q”), located in California, United States.
By using our Services and Products, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Our Services and Products are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services and Products, and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services and Products.
Using our Services and Products
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services and Products.
Don’t misuse our Services and Products. For example, don’t interfere with our Services and Products or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services and Products only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services and Products to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services and Products does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services and Products or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services and Products unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services and Products. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services and Products.
In connection with your use of the Services and Products, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
Some of our Services and Products are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services and Products in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.
Account Registration; Billing Information; Account Administrator
Following acceptance of Your initial Order, You will be permitted to establish an account through which to access the Services (an “Account”). 7Q will use commercially reasonable efforts to assign to You the name for the Account selected by You. To establish an Account, You must complete the Account registration process. During the Account registration and Order submission process You will be required to provide certain Account registration information (“Registration Information“) and billing information (“Billing Information“) for Your Account. You acknowledge and agree that all Registration Information and Billing Information You provide to 7Q will be accurate and complete. You agree to provide 7Q with prompt notice of any updates to the Registration Information and Billing Information so that it is maintained as accurate and complete throughout the term of this Agreement.
The Account Administrator will have ultimate authority for all instructions provided to 7Q regarding the administration of Your Account. For example, the Account Administrator will determine who can be a User of the Account, the level of privileges that each User will possess, and the privacy and security settings for the Account. The Account Administrator will also direct 7Q’s actions should any dispute arise between or among Users of the Account. All notices from 7Q will be given to the current Account Administrator at the e-mail address appearing in the Account settings of the Account, and/or by a message placed inside the Account.
Notwithstanding the identity of the Account Administrator, Your Account, and all related data, information, and content provided through any use of the Services through Your Account (“Your Data”) will be owned and controlled by the Customer. Upon any dispute regarding the identity of the Customer, 7Q may, in its sole discretion, determine the identity of the Customer based on the Registration Information, Billing Information, and Account usage; require that the Customer provide an order of a court of competent jurisdiction establishing its identity and rights to the Account; or suspend or terminate the associated Account.
The initial “Account Administrator” for Your Account must be designated during the Account registration process. Following creation of the Account, the Account Administrator may be changed (1) by written notice provided to 7Q by the Existing Account Administrator, or (2) by written notice provided to 7Q by an officer of Customer.
Your 7Q Account
You will need a 7Q Account in order to use our Services and Products. You may create your own 7Q Account, or your 7Q Account may be assigned to you by your system administrator, such as your employer or educational institution. If you are using a 7Q Account assigned to you by your system administrator, different or additional terms may apply and your administrator may be able to access or disable your account. You will be required to provide certain Account registration information (“Registration Information”) and billing information (“Billing Information”) for Your Account. You acknowledge and agree that all Registration Information and Billing Information You provide to 7Q will be accurate and complete. You agree to provide 7Q with prompt notice of any updates to the Registration Information and Billing Information so that it is maintained as accurate and complete throughout the term of this Agreement.
To protect your 7Q Account, keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your 7Q Account. Try not to reuse your 7Q Account password on third-party applications. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or 7Q Account please reset it so nobody else can sign in to your account.
Privacy and Copyright Protection
7Q’s privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our Services and Products. By using our Services and Products, you agree that 7Q can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Ownership of Your Data
ACCESS TO SERVICES
During the term of this Agreement, and subject to Your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, 7Q grants You a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to access and use the Services through Your Account solely for Your own internal business purposes. You may access the Services and Your Account only by means of the current interface or application programming interfaces (APIs) provided by 7Q. You are solely responsible for providing and operating all equipment and other services required to connect with Your Account.
The fees for the Services will be set forth in the applicable Orders. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order, (1) fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars (2) fees are based on Services purchased and not actual usage, (3) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (4) the number of User subscriptions purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term stated on the Order. User subscriptions added in the middle of a monthly period will be prorated for that remaining monthly period in the subscription term. You will be responsible for all use, sales, and other taxes imposed on the Services provided under this Agreement. You will provide 7Q with valid and updated credit card information. You authorize 7Q to charge such credit card for all Services listed in the Order for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order. Unless otherwise stated in the Order, invoiced charges are due net from the invoice date. If any charges are not received from you by the due date, then at 7Q’s discretion, will be suspend 7Q’s services to you until such amounts are paid in full
Following completion of the Account registration process, the Account Administrator will be permitted to designate individual employees and contractors of Customer (“Users”) to access the Services through Your Account. Once designated by the Account Administrator, Users will be permitted to select a user identification and password, or will have one assigned to them by 7Q (each such user identification and password, an “User ID”). Each User ID is personal in nature and may be used only by the applicable User to whom that User ID has been assigned. You are solely responsible for all use of the Services by each User and for compliance by each User with the applicable terms of this Agreement. You will ensure the security and confidentiality of each User ID and will notify 7Q immediately if any User ID is lost, stolen or otherwise compromised. You acknowledge that You are fully responsible for all costs, fees, liabilities or damages incurred through use of each User ID (whether lawful or unlawful), and that any Services ordered or transactions completed under any User ID will be deemed to have been lawfully completed by You.
THE SHARING OF USER ID’S BY MORE THAN ONE USER IS A VIOLATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.

You acknowledge that the Services and the databases, software, hardware and other technology used by or on behalf of 7Q to provide the Services (collectively, the “Technology”) and their structure, organization, and underlying data, information and source code constitute valuable trade secrets of 7Q.

Notices And Procedure For Making Claims Of Copyright Infringement
Just as 7Q requires users of the Services to respect the copyrights and other intellectual property rights of 7Q, its affiliates, and other third parties, 7Q respects the copyrights and other intellectual property rights of Users of the Services and other third parties. If You believe in good faith that Your copyrighted work has been reproduced through the Services without authorization in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, You may notify us by mail to: 7Q Corp. Please provide the following information to 7Q’s Copyright Infringement Agent: (1) the identity of the infringed work, and of the allegedly infringing work; (2) Your name, address, daytime phone number, and email address, if available; (3) a statement that You have a good-faith belief that the use of the copyrighted work is not authorized by the owner, his or her agent, or the law; (4) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that You are authorized to act on behalf of the owner; and (5) Your electronic or physical signature.
Neither party may assign or delegate their respective obligations under this Agreement either in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the other party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign their rights and obligations under this Agreement as the result of a merger, consolidation, acquisition or the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the assigning party and 7Q may assign its rights and delegate its obligations in whole or in part to any affiliate. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the State of California as applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents. The parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and waive any venue objections against state and federal courts in, Orange County, California in any litigation arising out of the Agreement. This Agreement will be interpreted fairly in accordance with its terms and without any strict construction in favor of or against either party. Except for Your obligation to pay for the Services rendered, neither party will be responsible for failure of performance due to causes beyond its control. Such causes include (without limitation) accidents, acts of God, labor disputes, actions of any government agency, shortage of materials, acts of terrorism, or the stability or availability of the Internet or a portion thereof. The waiver of any one breach, default or right granted under this Agreement will not constitute the waiver of any subsequent breach, default or right granted. You acknowledge that the Services are subject to U.S. export control laws and regulations. You represent that you are not a citizen of an embargoed country or prohibited end user under applicable U.S. export and anti-terrorism laws, regulations and lists. You will not use, export or allow a third party to use or export the Services in any manner that would violate applicable law, including but not limited to applicable export control laws and regulations. You grant to 7Q a revocable license for 7Q to use your trade name and/or your corporate logo in connection with 7Q’s promotional materials and/or website to identify you as a customer of 7Q. You may terminate this license by notifying 7Q in writing.
