If the Customer Agreement permits such User-Submitted Content to be made available to Customer’s limited partners, Portfolio Companies, investors and other third parties, in each case as directed by Customer or a Permitted User for the applicable Portfolio Company (“Permitted Third Parties”), in addition to the license granted to Ipreo in Section 4 (User-Submitted Content; Account Administration; Enterprise Content Sharing) above, you hereby grant Ipreo an unrestricted, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub­licenseable, irrevocable right and license to disclose, distribute and display such User-Submitted to such Permitted Third Parties,. You acknowledge that Ipreo will include the User-Submitted Content in Ipreo’s central database and use it to provide the applicable Products and to create Aggregated Data, and that Ipreo may distribute Aggregated Data and use such Aggregated Data for future studies and reports. Notwithstanding the termination obligations set forth in the Customer Agreement, you agree that certain User-Submitted Content relating to jointly owned Portfolio Companies may have been simultaneously shared with multiple clients of Ipreo via the Product, and such User-Submitted Content will be considered jointly owned data belonging equally to Customer and to Ipreo’s other clients using the Product who are also owners of the same Portfolio Company (each, a “Joint Owner”), and that such instances of jointly owned User-Submitted Content will not be removed from the Product upon termination of the Product license until any and all Joint Owners are no longer subscribers to the Product.

The Customer Agreement may permit Customer to use certain Ipreo Content provided by Ipreo through the Private Capital Markets Product to create Derived Data for use in Customer’s internal reports, client communications, and prospective client communications generated during the license of the Private Capital Markets Product. “Derived Data” shall mean data or other information obtained from calculations, manipulations, analyses and/or other processes performed on the Ipreo Content by Customer or its Permitted Users that (i) cannot be used as a replacement for the Products and/or Services unless, as a result of such calculations, manipulations, analyses or other processes, the resultant data is identical to the underlying Ipreo Content, which result is by coincidence and not by design and (ii) is delivered by Customer in reports and communications in a format that is implemented with Ipreo’s Excel plug-in but no other machine-readable format. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall not use any Database Information to create, update or modify any third party database or any product or service related to data or that could be competitive with or a substitute for any portion of the Products. Nothing contained in this paragraph shall prohibit or restrict Customer from using its own User-Submitted Content to derive values through its use of the Product.

Private Capital Markets Products may provide access to Work Product that includes ratios, metrics, measures, methods, or computations in analysis and reports provided by Ipreo or its Products in connection with your permitted use of the Products.

You acknowledge that Ipreo’s ability to provide applicable Work Product is dependent on Ipreo’s timely receipt of accurate and complete financial, ownership, and other User-Submitted Content. Furthermore, you acknowledge that Ipreo does not verify or substantiate User-Submitted Content, and that you are responsible for doing so.

Financial information that you provide to Ipreo by or on behalf of a Portfolio Company shall be User-Submitted Content under these Terms, subject to confidentiality and other provisions set forth in the applicable Customer Agreement or other applicable agreement.

Any calculation, conclusion regarding value, analysis, opinion, and/or reports included in the Work Product cannot be used for the purpose of avoiding federal tax penalties or for promoting, marketing or recommending any transaction or other opportunity or course of action to another person.

In connection with any valuations or related Products:

 

Products That Include Data Room Functionality

Certain Products feature use of a cloud-based system for sharing confidential documents through a workspace (each, a “Data Room”).

User-Submitted Content includes documents and other content maintained in a Data Room (“Data Room Content”). Notwithstanding any provisions of these Terms to the contrary, Ipreo shall not review, access, or use Data Room Content except as necessary to provide the Products, for the purposes of enforcing these Terms or an applicable Customer Agreement, or as required by law. As between the applicable Customer and Ipreo, Data Room Content is the sole property and responsibility of the Customer.

The applicable Customer shall control and allocate access and use rights with respect to the Data Room(s) and Data Room Content. If any additional terms posted by or for Customer on the Data Room or in the applicable Product are inconsistent with these Terms or the applicable Customer Agreement, these Terms and the applicable Customer Agreement shall govern, and Ipreo shall not be responsible for maintaining evidence of Permitted Users’ agreement to or compliance with such terms. 

Use of a Data Room other than for the purpose(s) specified in an applicable Customer Agreement is prohibited. For example, Ipreo’s Prism Products may be purchased for use in connection with a specific transaction or may be purchased for general internal business purposes; if purchased for a transaction, use for general internal business purpose (or for any other transaction) is prohibited, and vice versa.

In order to facilitate Ipreo’s provision of the Products, you agree to (i) use reasonable efforts to upload clear and legible copies of the Data Room Content in the best possible condition; (ii) only upload Data Room Content in accordance with applicable laws and for which you have all necessary rights and permissions; (iii) cooperate with Ipreo in correcting any problems associated with the hosting of, access to, or use of Data Room Content; (iv) retain a complete set of documents uploaded by or for you as Data Room Content and indemnify; (v) promptly report to Ipreo any technical issues that you encounter in connection with the use of any Data Room or with respect to any particular Data Room Content; and (vi) immediately notify Ipreo in writing of any actual or reasonably likely court order or other legal requirement that would restrict the use, distribution or disposition of the any Data Room Content.

Note that, when a Permitted User accesses Data Room Content, a copy of the accessed content may be copied to the user's computer. This is called “caching.” Caching is used to improve the speed of the Product. Data Room Content that has been cached on your computer may be accessible to anyone with access to your computer. Each Permitted User assumes all risk and liability associated with any content cached to that Permitted User's computer. Ipreo recommends that you empty your web browser cache when you log out of a Product session to ensure that any cached files from your session are deleted from your computer.

 

You acknowledge that Ipreo cannot guarantee that third parties will not unlawfully access Data Rooms and/or Data Room Content, and Ipreo shall not be responsible or liable for any such access. See Section 12 (General Disclaimers) below.

 

10.             Personal Data and Usage Data

To the extent User-Submitted Content (including Data Room Content) includes any personal data that is Relevant Personal Data, you acknowledge that (A) Ipreo is a data processor with respect to that Relevant Personal Data, and (B) the applicable Customer is the data controller of such Relevant Personal Data, unless another controller is specified as to particular data in connection with a particular Product. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that Ipreo may cause or permit such Relevant Personal Data to be transferred between or among various Ipreo affiliates, service providers and facilities, including facilities outside of the EU, including in the United States. It is your and the Customer’s obligation to ensure that you have complied with applicable law with respect to the inclusion of such Relevant Personal Data in User-Submitted Content and in authorizing such transfers. Note that, when reasonably requested by a Customer, Ipreo will enter into EU-approved Standard Contractual Clauses with respect to the transfer of EU personal data in User-Submitted Content outside of the EU, including to the United States, and such clauses may be included in the applicable Customer Agreement.

Ipreo will comply with applicable law in connection with such collection and sharing, as may be further addressed in our Privacy Policy and/or in connection with registration for or the use of a particular Product.  

Ipreo’s databases: As part of its BD and database services and Products, Ipreo collects, licenses, and uses information regarding individuals and companies in the global capital markets community. It is possible that you and some of your contacts may be part of the global capital markets community, and information about you and some of your contacts may appear in our commercial databases.

Ipreo has no discretion to verify, alter, or update such Third-Party Content (including any advertising or other marketing material included therein).

Use of Third-Party Content is subject to the applicable license terms of such third parties, which may be identified in a Customer Agreement or otherwise presented in connection with the Products.
