2. RIGHTS AND RESTRICTIONS. The Software Product is protected by U.S. and foreign copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as by other such intellectual property laws and treaties. The Software Product is licensed (and not sold) to Licensee, and any and all rights not expressly granted to Licensee herein are reserved by Vendor.
3. INSTALLATION AND STATISTICS. Licensee may install the Software Product on one or more servers that are running supported Learning Management Systems, including test and development servers. Vendor will collect statistics that return aggregate numbers of tool use.

7. PAYMENT AND LICENSE. Payment of the license fee shall be made WITHIN SIXTY (60) DAYS FOLLOWING THE Effective Date of the Agreement. In the event any overdue amount owed by Licensee is not paid following ten (10) days written notice from Vendor, then in addition to any other amount due, Vendor may impose and Licensee shall pay a late payment charge at the rate of one percent (1%) per month on any overdue amount. If payment is not received within sixty (60) days, product licenses may become disabled. For product use beyond license expiration date, product license needs to be renewed.

In the event this License is terminated, Licensee must destroy all copies of the Software Product (including all components thereof) and of each Upgrade thereto.
9. PRIVACY. Vendor does not share or distribute personal user information and data with institutions, companies, associations, etc. Any data collected of this type is intended for use by the Licensee. General statistics are gathered to gauge use of the Software Product to help determine future development. The Software Product is designed to not store personally identifiable information (PII). When PII can be used to enhance the use of the Software Product, the goal is to keep its impact at a minimum. Licensee first needs to opt-in to have this type of information cached with Vendor and individual users have the right to opt-out at any point. User login to the Software Product is accessed through their learning system (LMS/VLE). With the exception of an administrator, the Software Product users are accessing products via learning system integration and are typically provided with an authorization prompt upon first-time use to allow this behavior. The administrator logging into the Software Product Dashboard to manage settings and other Software Product features is selected by each Licensee and additional administrators are added at the discretion of each Licensee.
10. SECURITY AND DATA. If there were a breach of security in any form, Licensee would be notified immediately of the situation along with the necessary steps that would be taken to ensure the safety of Licensee information from that point and moving forward. Vendor does not own any data centers. Data instances and records of Licensee are stored for seven (7) years and are automatically deleted sixty (60) days after Licensee leaves the platform or after the expiration of a trial or pilot. Records and data-points can be deleted immediately upon leaving the platform by Licensee request and, as necessary, work can be completed to make sure mechanisms for data deletion meet Licensee needs.
