Confidential Information does not include any information that: (a) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of Woodpecker’s breach of this confidentiality section; (b) is or becomes available on a non-confidential basis from a third party source, provided that such third party is not and was not prohibited from disclosing such Confidential Information; (c) was in Woodpecker’s possession prior to your disclosure hereunder; or (d) was or is independently developed by Woodpecker without using or relying upon any of your Confidential Information, as evidenced by Woodpecker’s written records.

SECTION 12 - Copyright Infringement

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect you to do the same.

It is our policy to terminate the Woodpecker account of anyone who repeatedly infringes the copyright or intellectual property rights of others. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, Woodpecker will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using Woodpecker as reported to us.

  1. Your full legal name and electronic or physical signature;

  2. A description of the copyrighted work or other interest that you believe has been infringed;

  3. Enough information to properly identify and locate that content (including, at a minimum, the relevant URL);

  4. Contact information, including your address, telephone number, and email address;

  5. The following statements in the body of notice:

    • “I hereby state that I have not authorized the challenged use, and I have a good-faith belief that the challenged use is not authorized by law.”

    • “I hereby state under penalty of perjury that all of the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the owner of the IP or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the IP.”

Upon receipt of notice as described above, we will seek to confirm the existence of the IP on Woodpecker and take whatever action, in our sole discretion, we deem appropriate.

Section 13 - Warranty Disclaimers

WOODPECKER IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. Woodpecker will have no responsibility for any harm to your computer system, loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of Woodpecker. Some states do not allow the types of disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.

Section 14 - Indemnity

You will hold harmless and indemnify Woodpecker and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, and suppliers from and against any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of Woodpecker or violation of these Terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.

Section 15 - Limitation of Liability

(A) TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WOODPECKER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF USE, PROFIT, DATA, GOOD WILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE), REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER OR NOT WOODPECKER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE; (B) AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO WOODPECKER MORE THAN THE GREATER OF $200 OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO WOODPECKER FOR THE PAST THREE MONTHS OF THE SERVICES IN QUESTION. Some states do not allow the types of limitations in this paragraph. If you are in one of these jurisdictions, these limitations may not apply to you.

SECTION 16 - Termination

We may terminate or modify your access to and use of Woodpecker, at our sole discretion, at any time and without notice to you, for example, if you are not complying with these Terms, or if you use Woodpecker in any way that would cause us legal liability or disrupt others’ use of Woodpecker.

Likewise, you may cancel your account at any time.

If we suspend or terminate your use of Woodpecker, we will try to let you know in advance and help you retrieve data, though there may be cases (for example, flagrantly violating these Terms) where we may suspend your account immediately.

SECTION 17 - General Terms

These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Massachusetts without regard to its conflict of law’s provisions. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or the services or software must be litigated exclusively in the state and federal courts located in Boston, MA and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and Woodpecker and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions. These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights. Woodpecker’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms without our written consent, and any such attempt will be null and have no effect. Woodpecker may freely assign or transfer these terms without restriction. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
