TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: (A) IN NO EVENT WILL ANY BOUNDLESS PARTY BE LIABLE UNDER THESE TERMS FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER (HOWEVER CAUSED AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER DERIVED FROM CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE), OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES OR OTHER COVER, OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL OR ECONOMIC LOSS OF ANY KIND, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF, NOR WILL THE BOUNDLESS PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM A FORCE MAJEURE EVENT OR AN ACT OF A THIRD PARTY OR THROUGH NO FAULT ON ITS BEHALF; AND (B) THE TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF YOU, AND THE TOTAL CUMULATIVE COLLECTIVE LIABILITY OF THE BOUNDLESS PARTIES, FOR ALL COSTS, LOSSES OR DAMAGES FROM ALL CLAIMS, ACTIONS OR SUITS, HOWEVER CAUSED, ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE SUBJECT MATTER HEREOF WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (i) ALL AMOUNTS PAID OR DUE FROM YOU FOR THE SERVICE GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM DURING THE SIX (6) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE CLAIM (NO MATTER WHEN PAYMENTS WERE ACTUALLY MADE), OR (ii) TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ($10,000). You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Boundless has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any acts and omissions of (including any failure to comply with these Terms by) your Authorized Users or your End Users and for the consequences of any such acts and omissions (including any loss or damage that Boundless may suffer).
13.4 Basis of the Bargain. You and Boundless acknowledge and agree that the warranty disclaimers, limitations of liability, and indemnities in these Terms are a fundamental basis of the bargain between you and Boundless, and are a material part of the consideration received by Boundless for the provision of the Service and rights granted under these Terms, and Boundless would not have entered into these Terms, or provided the Service or rights, in the absence of such warranty disclaimers, limitations of liability and indemnities.
- Confidential Information.
14.1 Confidentiality obligations apply to information disclosed in connection with the Service. You or Boundless (as the “Disclosing Party”) may disclose Confidential Information to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) in connection with the Service. The Receiving Party will not (and will not permit anyone else to) (a) use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party except as necessary for performance of the Receiving Party’s obligations and exercise of the Receiving Party’s rights under these Terms or (b) disclose any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to anyone other than the Receiving Party’s employees, contractors, service providers and agents who need to know such Confidential Information for such purposes, and who are subject to confidentiality obligations with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those in these Terms. To safeguard the Confidential Information, the Receiving Party will exercise the same degree of care it employs to prevent the unauthorized use and disclosure of its own confidential information, but in no event less than reasonable care. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted). You agree that Boundless may access and disclose Your Content to comply with any legal obligations or governmental or regulatory body request (including subpoenas or court orders), as part of a legal proceeding involving Boundless Parties or at your request. You will not disclose these Terms to any third party without the prior written consent of Boundless, except pursuant to a valid and enforceable order of a court or government agency.
14.2 Injunctive Relief is available to Boundless. You acknowledge and agree that your breach or threatened breach of this Section 14 may cause Boundless irreparable harm and significant injury, the amount of which may be difficult to estimate and ascertain, thus making inadequate any remedy at law or in damages. Therefore, you agree that Boundless is entitled to injunctive relief from any court of competent jurisdiction to enjoin any threatened or actual breach of these Terms and any other relief that such court deems appropriate, in addition to any other remedy or remedies available at law or in equity.
- Indemnification. You will, at your sole expense and to the fullest extent permitted by Law, indemnify and hold harmless (and, at Boundless’s request, defend) the Boundless Parties against any and all losses, liabilities, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) suffered or incurred by the Boundless Parties by reason of any Claim arising out of or relating to (a) your Application or Your Content, including any assertion that your Application or Your Content or the use of either or both (i) infringes any copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property of any individual or entity, (ii) misappropriates any individual or entity’s trade secret, (iii) violates the privacy or publicity rights or any individual or entity or fails to comply with the privacy or data protection Laws, (iv) contains any libelous, defamatory, disparaging, pornographic, or obscene materials, (v) infringes or violates any other rights of any individual or entity, or (vi) caused death or bodily injury or damage to the real or tangible property of any third party; (b) any breach of, or failure by you (including your Authorized Users) or your End Users, to comply with these Terms; (c) access to or use of the Service by you (including your Authorized Users), your End Users, or anyone who accesses the Service through you (whether or not such access is authorized by you or by Boundless); or (d) any breach by you of any representations, warranties, covenants, or other provisions in these Terms. Whether or not Boundless asks you to defend a Claim, you will not agree to any settlement without the prior written consent of Boundless. If Boundless asks you to defend a Claim, Boundless will have the right to participate in the defense of the Claim with counsel of its own choosing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will have no obligation to indemnify and hold harmless the Boundless Parties against any losses or liabilities suffered or incurred by the Boundless Parties by reason of any determination by a court of competent jurisdiction that (i) the Service as provided by Boundless infringes a copyright or patent or misappropriates a trade secret of any third party or (ii) the name of the Service infringes a trademark of a third party.
- General Legal Terms.
16.1 Governing Law and Jurisdiction. These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the Laws of the State of New York (and, to the extent controlling, the federal Laws of the United States), which will govern without reference to the conflicts-of-laws rules thereof. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act will not apply to (and are excluded from the Laws governing) these Terms. In addition, you agree that any Claim arising under or relating to these Terms will be brought exclusively in (and the parties will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of) the state courts sitting in New York County, New York or the federal courts in the Southern District of New York to resolve any disputes arising under this Agreement and waive any objections to the propriety or convenience of venue in such courts.

16.4 General. The parties’ relationship to each other under these Terms is strictly that of independent contractors and nothing in these Terms will in any way constitute or be construed as evidence of intent to establish any association, partnership, joint venture or other relationship. Each party will be responsible for covering its costs and expenses in performing its duties and exercising its rights under these Terms, unless expressly provided otherwise in these Terms. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms, or any portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of these Terms and the remainder of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. The section headings used in these Terms are for convenience only and will not be given any substantive effect. When used in these Terms, “include” or “including” will be deemed to mean “include but are not limited to” or “including but not limited to.” Unless the context or construction otherwise requires, all words applied in the plural will be deemed to have been used in the singular, and vice versa. The English language version of these Terms is legally binding in case of any inconsistencies between the English version and any translations. A party may only waive its rights under these Terms by a written document executed by both parties. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision hereof. You may not assign or transfer (by operation of law or otherwise) any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without Boundless’s prior written consent. Boundless may freely assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under these Terms. Any unauthorized assignment or transfer will be null and void.

- Notice Boundless U.S.’s Privacy Statement (www.boundlessgeo.com/privacy_policy) describes the types of personal information that Boundless collects, the purposes for which it collects such personal information, the types of third parties to which it discloses such personal information, the rights and choices of individuals, and how to contact Boundless with any inquiries or complaints.
- Choice In the event personal information is (i) to be used for a new purpose incompatible with the purposes for which the personal information was originally collected or subsequently authorized, or (ii) transferred to a third party exercising independent control over the personal information, individuals are given, where practical and appropriate, an opportunity to object to have their personal information so used or transferred.
- Onward Transfer of personal information Boundless U.S. may transfer personal information as described in the Privacy Statement (www.boundlessgeo.com/privacy_policy). Boundless U.S. will only transfer personal information to a service provider exercising independent control over the personal information that: (1) is subject to laws based on the European Union Data Protection Directive 95/46 or Swiss Federal Data Protection Law, (2) subscribes to the Safe Harbor Principles; or (3) contractually agrees to provide at least the same level of protection for personal information as is required by the relevant Safe Harbor Principles.
Except as described in the Privacy Statement, Boundless U.S. will only transfer personal information to a non-service provider exercising independent control over the personal information when individuals have been provided notice and have given their consent, and, where required, that third party has entered into a written agreement with Boundless U.S. Where Boundless U.S. has knowledge that a non-service provider third party is using or sharing personal information in a way that is contrary to these Safe Harbor Principles, Boundless U.S. will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop such processing.
Boundless U.S. may share personal information as required by law or legal process, such as responding to a duly authorized information request of a police or governmental authority, to enforce or protect the rights of Boundless, when such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss as permitted by applicable law, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
Boundless U.S. may also share personal information in the context of a business transaction involving part or all of Boundless, such as a merger, acquisition, consolidation, or divestiture. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is Boundless U.S.’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions. Following such a business transaction, you may contact the entity to which we transferred your personal information with any inquiries concerning the use of that information.
- Security Boundless U.S. takes reasonable precautions to help protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
- Access Where appropriate, individuals have reasonable access to their personal information and may request corrections, deletions, or additions, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
- Data Integrity Boundless takes reasonable steps to limit the collection and usage of personal information to that which is relevant for the intended purposes for which it was collected, and to ensure that such personal information is reliable, accurate, complete and current. An individual may contact Boundless U.S. as indicated below or in the Privacy Statement (www.boundlessgeo.com/privacy_policy) to request that their personal information be updated or corrected.
- Enforcement and Dispute Resolution Boundless U.S. has established procedures to periodically verify implementation of and compliance with the Safe Harbor Principles. Boundless U.S. conducts an annual self-assessment of its practices regarding personal information intended to verify that the assertions Boundless U.S. makes about its practices are true and that such practices have been implemented as represented.
In case of disputes, individuals are able to seek resolution of their questions or complaints regarding collection, storage, use, transfer, and other processing of their personal information in accordance with the Safe Harbor Principles. If an individual feels that Boundless U.S. is not abiding by this Safe Harbor Privacy Notice or is not in compliance with the Safe Harbor Principles, he or she should first contact Boundless U.S. at the contact information provided below. Boundless U.S. has agreed to cooperate with the U.S. and European Data Protection Authorities for the purpose of handling any unresolved complaints regarding personal information.
Amendment This Safe Harbor Notice may be amended consistent with the requirements of the United States Department of Commerce’s Safe Harbor Framework. When we update this Safe Harbor Privacy Notice, we will also revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of this document.
