DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
The Service includes, and is limited to, a web-based and downloadable computer software program that can be installed and run on Your desktop, laptop, or mobile device (known as “MeetingSense WebCapture, the Outlook and SkypeCapture plugins”), and a web site allowing You access to and use of a single MeetingSense Account, with Support from MeetingSense. “MeetingSense On-demand” referred to herein means the MeetingSense Software, a server-based software product, which includes a web and downloadable software component as described above, hosted on a website that allows individuals or groups of individuals to capture, automatically summarize, distribute, and then track and manage online every piece of information shared during meetings including digital audio, participants roll call, documents and files, meeting notes, agenda items, key points and decisions, alerts, comments, action items and much more. A “MeetingSense On-demand Account” or “Account” referred to herein means a web site and downloadable software component, provided by MeetingSense in exchange for Your payments, where You may use MeetingSense On-demand to create, update, share, and publish information, data, text, files and documents, software, messages or other materials (“Content”). “Support” referred to herein means basic technical support from MeetingSense, available via electronic mail (email), website support found online: http://ms5.meetingsense.com/support/, and via telephone for premium support handled during MeetingSense’s normal operating business hours. MeetingSense explicitly DOES NOT provide telephone support outside its normal operating business hours.
Without limiting the foregoing, the Service, including the downloadable component, is not designed or licensed for use in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe controls, including without limitation operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation/communication systems, air traffic control, and life support or weapons systems.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the downloadable component, and the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Agreement. In order to use the Service, You must obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, You must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device. You also understand and agree that the service includes a required downloadable software component and may include certain communications from MeetingSense, such as service announcements, administrative messages, update alerts, etc., and that these communications are considered part of the Service and You will not be able to opt out of receiving them. You agree not to access the Service, including any downloadable components, by any means other than through the interfaces that are provided by MeetingSense for use in accessing the Service. MeetingSense will provide the Service in accordance with this Agreement. MeetingSense may at its sole discretion modify the features of the Service from time to time without prior notice.
In order to use the Service, You must have a valid Account. To acquire an Account for the Service, You must provide MeetingSense with an electronic mail address and other information (“Registration Data”). You will choose an account designation for Your Account during the Service’s registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the access data for Your Account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under Your Account. You agree to (a) immediately notify MeetingSense of any unauthorized use of Your Account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that You exit from Your Account at the end of each session. MeetingSense cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from Your failure to comply with this section. In consideration of use of the Service, You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about Yourself as prompted by the Service’s registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. MeetingSense assumes no duty to verify such information as further detailed in CONTENT OF THE SERVICE. If You provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or MeetingSense has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, MeetingSense has the right to suspend or terminate Your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). If You register to use the Service on a free-trial basis, You will also have to go through the registration process. If You are under 18 years of age then You are required to have a parent or guardian review and complete the registration process on your behalf.
For the first thirty (30) calendar days after You register (the “Trial Period”), MeetingSense will provide You the Service without charge, for an unlimited number of “Users” (user names defined by You, associated with specific humans with electronic mail addresses and passwords, who may utilize Your Account). You may, but are under no obligation to, provide a credit card number and related credit card information during registration or during the Trial Period. If you chose to purchase the Service following the Trial Period, credit cards are the only payment mechanism MeetingSense will accept for payment of the monthly subscription fee (“Subscription Fee”) for the Service. Purchase Orders will be accepted for annual or multi-annual purchases only whereby all the monthly fees for the Registered users are paid in advance for the entire year and/or multi-year increments. All currency references are in U.S. dollars.
Before or at the expiration of Your Trial Period, You shall choose whether You or any of your Trial Users would like to pay for the Service in order to continue using it. Once You (and your Trial Users) have reached the thirty day limit, then You and any Free Users may NOT continue to use Your Account for free and must switch to a Paid account and pay the appropriate Service Fees. If You or any of Your Free Users choose to move forward with a Paid Account, You and/or Your Free Users shall pay fees (described below) to MeetingSense on a monthly basis per Active User.
The standard cost of a Subscription Fee for a Paid Account (the “Monthly Fee”) shall be $19, for each given calendar month as defined according to local time in San Diego, California, USA (“Month”), for each Active User in Your Account, unless You have purchased from MeetingSense multiple Subscriptions at the same time at published or negotiated volume discount rates AND MeetingSense has agreed to such volume discount rates in writing. The number of Active Users for purposes of calculating the monthly cost of Your Subscription Fee shall be the highest simultaneous number of Active Users in Your Account during the previous month. The number of Active Users for purposes of calculating the annual cost of Your Service Fee (if purchasing an annual or multi-annual Service) shall be the highest simultaneous number of Active Users in Your Account during the previous month or that You anticipate will be in Your Account during the contracted term, whichever is greater.
Upon the expiration of Your Trial Period, MeetingSense will end customer access to the Service and will, within thirty (30) calendar days, delete/destroy all the data captured by You and/or Your Free Users in the Service during the Trial Period, unless MeetingSense has received credit card payment or and executed Purchase Order and been able to use it for the first payment of the Subscription Fee (see “Termination, Breach, Suspension and Cancellation” below) and/or received formal written acceptance of an invoice against a Purchase Order.
Upon the expiration of Your Trial Period, if You choose a Paid Account, we will request Your credit card information, or if purchasing a year or more of Service a credit card or an executed and valid Purchase Order, to add to Your Registration Data. Your credit card will be charged on the next first “Business Day” of the subsequent Month (the first calendar day of each month that is not a Saturday, Sunday or holiday) for Your use of the Service from registration until the charge date. If You sign up for Your Account on a day other than the first day of a Month, or if You terminate the Service in the middle of a Month, the Monthly Fee for that Month of service will be charged for the entire Month in which you initiated or terminated Your Account. If You purchase an annual or multi-annual Service contract you will be billed immediately and your payment for the full Service term will be due net 15 days from Your receipt of the Invoice for the Service. If You sign up for an annual or multi-annual Account on a day other than the first day of a Month, you will be charged the full annual Fee for that year or those years of service inclusive of all of the days of the month in which you signed up for the Account, irrespective of whether You actually used the Service or not for that full initial month.
High Watermark Billing
Your first payment will be based on the total number of publishers active on your first payment due date noted in your administrator’s area. Each month after that, your account is charged for the maximum number of active publishers (not admins or guests) during that month. Use the Manage Users table in your admin area of your MeetingSense dashboard to add/remove or edit the role of the users in your account.
As long as Your Account remains active and in good standing, You will automatically be charged and notified of the Monthly, annual or multi-annual Fee(s) even if You never use the Service. You may, however, cancel Your Account at any time unless you have purchased an annual or multi-annual Service contract.
The credit card that You provide as part of the Registration Data will be automatically and immediately billed on the same day of each Month on which you made your original purchase. You agree that MeetingSense may charge to Your credit card all amounts due and owing for Your Account on that monthly basis or upon cancellation (see “Termination, Breach, Suspension and Cancellation” and “Refund”). MeetingSense will contact You via electronic mail to alert You upon each charge. In the case of a Purchase Order, MeetingSense will send you an invoice reflective of the Purchase Order and will require you to abide by the terms and conditions contained therein including net fifteen (15) day payment (from receipt of the invoice for the Service) for the full amount of Your annual or multi-annual purchase. MeetingSense may change prices at any time without prior notice, but will endeavor to provide reasonable advance notice via Your Account website and/or electronic mail. You agree that in the event MeetingSense is unable to collect the fees owed to MeetingSense for Your Account through Your Subscription, annual, or multi-annual Fee(s), MeetingSense may take any other steps it deems necessary to collect such fees from You and that You will be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by MeetingSense in connection with such collection activity, including collection fees, court costs and attorneys’ fees.
MeetingSense will provide Support, including any upgrades that MeetingSense releases for MeetingSense Software or the Service, for Your Account at no additional cost. Support includes the following services: email support between 8AM – 5PM PST, Monday through Friday with 1 day (24 hour) turnaround/response time frame. You also get 24/7 access to our online Knowledge Base, Frequently Asked Questions, Tutorials, Support Ticketing and Submittal System and other online resources.
TERMINATION, BREACH, SUSPENSION AND CANCELLATION
If Your Monthly Fee payment or annual or multi-annual contract fee is overdue, or if Your Trial Period has expired and You have chosen a Paid Account and MeetingSense has not yet received Your credit card or executed Purchase Order portion of Your Registration Data, MeetingSense may disable Your access and Your Users’ access to Your Account. If Your Subscription Fee payment or annual or multi-annual contract fee is more than 30 calendar days overdue, or if Your Trial Period expired more than 30 calendar days prior and You have chosen a Paid Account and You have not paid Your Subscription or annual Fee(s), MeetingSense may suspend or terminate Your account, prevent You or Your Users from getting access to data you have captured using the Service, and may within thirty (30) calendar days from your payment due date delete/destroy any of Yours or Your User’s data.
MeetingSense may also, at its sole discretion, at any time and for any reason, terminate the Service, terminate this Agreement, or suspend or terminate Your Account. In the event of suspension or termination, Your account will be disabled and You may not be granted access to Your Account or any files or other Data/Content contained in Your Account. In addition, MeetingSense may delete Your Content in its entirety, although residual copies of information may remain in our system for some time for back-up purposes. In the event of termination, MeetingSense may also withdraw and at its discretion reallocate the public web address of Your Account.
If You terminate Your Account, via means provided for cancellation on the MeetingSense website or in Your Account, or via telephone call or electronic mail to MeetingSense, and You request that MeetingSense delete Content and files contained in Your Account, MeetingSense will make all reasonable efforts to do so.
OWNERSHIP OF WEBSITE ACCOUNT AND SECURITY
You are responsible for maintaining the security of Your Content and MeetingSense Account, and You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the Account and any other actions taken in connection with the MeetingSense Account, including those of Your Users. You agree to immediately notify MeetingSense of any unauthorized and/or illegal uses of the Account or any other breaches of security. MeetingSense cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from Your failure to comply with this security obligation.

What information does MeetingSense collect regarding MeetingSense Software On-demand?
If you have a MeetingSense, Inc dba MeetingSense Software Corporation (“MeetingSense”) On-demand account, we do NOT store your credit card information so as to bill you monthly or an annual or multi-annual basis. Rather, we use Authorize.net to store and process all credit card transactions. Since 1996, Authorize.Net has been a leading provider of payment gateway services, managing the submission of payment transactions to the processing networks on behalf of merchant customers. On November 1, 2007, CyberSource Corporation acquired Authorize.Net. Collectively, the companies processed approximately 1.1 billion transactions in 2006, representing $65 billion of e-commerce. More than 207,000 merchants trust Authorize.Net to manage their payment transactions securely and reliably.
The information required by this purchase (“Billing Information”) includes a name, billing address, credit card number, and expiration date. An e-mail address is also required in order to send a purchase confirmation as well as to contact the user in case of a problem. You do not have to include a phone number or information on how you learned of MeetingSense, but if you do offer that information, it is stored along with other non-credit card related Billing Information. We also store on your behalf all information, data, text, software, messages or other materials that you, your Account’s users, and (if you allow) other internet users upload and publish into your MeetingSense installation. Every computer that is connected to the Internet has an Internet Protocol Address, referred to as an IP address. This address does not reveal anything personal about the user. We log IP addresses for security-related prevention, response, and audit activities. Finally, in order to tailor future releases to users’ needs, other information is collected through users’ web browsers. This information includes connection speed, operating system, web browser, and browser version.
What is done with the information?
Authorize.net uses Your Billing Information to charge you monthly for your MeetingSense On-demand usage. As mentioned above, MeetingSense itself does not store any of your credit card information. We also use the email address you give us in the Billing Information to email you for customer support and for notifications related to your account. If we cannot reach you via email for those notifications we may use the telephone number and physical address you provide to contact you.
