Welcome to Passage Technology. We’re glad you’re here, and we hope you enjoy everything we have to offer.
Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully because they are a binding agreement between you and Passage Technology LLC, (“Passage Technology,” “we,” “us,” and “our”).
Please note that we offer many services. Your use of Passage Technology products or services are provided by Passage Technology pursuant to a separate manually or digitally-executed agreement. Those additional terms become part of your agreement with us, if you use any of our Sites.
A. Your Accounts
You may be required to create an account and specify a password in order to use certain of the Sites’ services or features. To create an account, you must be at least 18 years old at the time of account creation and you must provide truthful, accurate, and complete information about yourself. You are expressly prohibited from creating any account with us using any personal information other than your own. Should your personal information change at any time, please update your account to reflect those changes.
In some cases, an account may be assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer or educational institution. If you are using or logging into an account assigned to you by an administrator, additional terms may apply to your use of the Sites. Moreover, your administrator may be able to access or disable your account without our involvement.
You shall not share access to your account with any other person or entity. Please keep your password confidential, and, to increase security, try not to use the same password on other websites. If you believe that your account has been compromised at any time, please promptly notify your system administrator.
Since a portion of our community is controlled by Salesforce.com, you hereby acknowledge and agree to all terms and conditions outlined in the Salesforce Terms of Service, available at https://www.salesforce.com/company/legal/sfdc-website-terms-of-service.jsp in addition to the following:
Please note that if you register for an event, fill out a form, or log into the Success Community, Partner Community, AppExchange or any of Salesforce’s websites, we obtain personal information from you (such as name, company information, photos, etc.). This information may be used or shared with us or our agents for the purpose of improving quality of our services, or for our marketing purposes. You acknowledge and agree that the Success Community and other similar forums are public spaces and that your participation in such communities creates no expectation of privacy. Further, you acknowledge that any Content (as defined in Section D) you communicate in a community may be seen and used by others. You understand that our staff, outside contributors, or other users connected with us may participate in communities or other aspects of the Sites and may employ anonymous usernames when doing so. IF YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR OTHER CONTENT PUBLICLY AVAILABLE IN A COMMUNITY OR OTHERWISE ON OR THROUGH THE SITES, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
C. Modifications and Termination
We reserve the right to modify our Sites at any time, without notice to you. For example, we may add or remove functionality or features, and we may suspend or stop a particular feature altogether. We also reserve the right to charge a fee for any of our features at any time. If you don’t like any such changes, you can stop using our Sites at any time.
We may, in our sole discretion, suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Sites, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Sites will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account or your access to your account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all personalization in your account. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
D. Content You Post
We may provide opportunities for you to post text, photographs, videos, or other content (collectively, “Content”) on the Sites. You can only post Content if you own all the rights to that Content, or if another rights holder has given you permission.
You do not transfer ownership of your Content simply by posting it. However, by posting Content, you grant us, our agents, licensees, and assigns an irrevocable, perpetual (non-exclusive) right and permission to reproduce, encode, store, copy, transmit, publish, post, broadcast, display, publicly perform, adapt, modify, create derivative works of, exhibit, and otherwise use your Content. Without those rights, we couldn’t offer our Services. Please note that this license continues even if you stop using our Sites. For clarity, any communication or material you transmit to the Sites electronically or otherwise, including any data, questions, comments, suggestions, or the like is, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary. Anything you transmit or post to the Sites may be used by Passage Technology or its affiliates for any purpose, including but not limited to reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast, and posting. Furthermore, Passage Technology is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in any communication transmitted to the Sites for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to developing, manufacturing, and marketing products using such information.
You shall indemnify, release, and hold harmless, Passage Technology against any claim, demand, suit, or proceeding made or brought against Passage Technology by a third party alleging that your Content, or your use of the Sites in violation of these Terms, infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third party or violates applicable law, and shall indemnify Passage Technology for any damages finally awarded against, and for reasonable attorney's fees incurred by Passage Technology in connection with any such claim, demand, suit, or proceeding.
Keep in mind that if you send us any information, ideas, suggestions, or other communications to us, those communications will not be confidential. Moreover, unless we tell you otherwise, we reserve the right to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such communications without any obligation to you.
E. Content Posted by Others
We are not responsible for, and do not endorse, Content posted by any person or entity. Accordingly, we may not be held liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused to you in connection with any Content posted by such other person or entity.
F. Your Use of the Sites
You are prohibited from using the Sites in a way that violates any laws, infringes on anyone’s rights, is offensive, or interferes with the Sites or any features on the Sites (including any technological measures we employ to enforce these Terms). You may not access the Sites if you are a direct competitor of Passage Technology, except with Passage Technology’s prior written consent. In addition, you may not access the Sites for purposes of monitoring their availability, performance, or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes. Furthermore, you shall not: (i) license, sublicense, sell, resell, transfer, assign, distribute, or otherwise commercially exploit or make available to any third party the Sites or any Passage Technology content in any way; (ii) modify or make derivative works based upon the Sites; (iii) create Internet ‘links’ to the Sites or ‘frame’ or ‘mirror’ any of Passage Technology’s proprietary content on any other server or wireless or Internet-based device; or (iv) reverse engineer or access the Sites in order to (a) build a competitive product or service, (b) build a product using similar ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Sites, or (c) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Service.
It should be common sense, so we won’t bore you with a list of things you shouldn’t do. Passage Technology may, in its sole and complete discretion, determine that you have acted inappropriately, and we reserve the right to take down any and all Content, terminate your account, prohibit you from accessing the Sites, and/or seek appropriate legal action.
Using our Sites does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights to the content you access. You may not use content from our Sites unless you obtain permission from us or its owner, or unless you are otherwise permitted by law.
G. Intellectual Property
H. Social Networks
The Service may include features that operate in conjunction with certain third party social networking websites that you visit such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo, and Twitter (“Social Network Features”). While your use of the Social Network Features is governed by these Terms, your access and use of third party social networking sites and the services provided through the Services is governed by the applicable terms of service and other agreements posted on these sites. You are responsible for ensuring that your use of those sites complies with any applicable terms of service or other agreements.
