This Apps Marketplace Terms of Service Agreement (“Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions of the use of the CIrcle ITC marketplace platform (“Apps Marketplace”), which provides third-party applications and services to CIrcle ITC customers (“App” or “Apps”). In this Agreement “You” and “Your” refer to You as the user of the Apps Marketplace, or any agent, employee, servant or person authorized to act on Your behalf. “We”, “Us” and “Our” refer to CIrcle ITC, Inc., as well as its subsidiaries and sister companies (“CIrcle ITC”). “Provider” refers to a third-party which offers its product and/or service on the Apps Marketplace in the form of an Apps Marketplace application. This Agreement explains Our obligations to You, and explains Your obligations to Us for using the Apps Marketplace. These obligations are in addition to (not in lieu of) any terms and conditions that apply to Your use of the Services under any other CIrcle ITC policies and/or agreements.

When You access the Apps Marketplace (or You permit someone else to use Your Account to access the Apps Marketplace) to use, purchase or otherwise acquire access to products or services on the Apps Marketplace, or to cancel such products or services (even if We were not notified of such authorization), You signify Your agreement to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement along with the CIrcle ITC Universal Terms of Service Agreement and all applicable policies and product agreements incorporated by reference therein, including but not limited to the CIrcle ITC Privacy Policy.

1.  Term of Agreement; Modification.

You agree that CIrcle ITC may, in its sole and absolute discretion, modify or change this Agreement, the Apps Marketplace and/or the Apps offered on the Apps Marketplace from time to time and that such modifications or changes are effective immediately upon posting to this site. Your use of the site, the Apps Marketplace or any App(s) after such changes or modifications have been made constitutes Your agreement to be bound by this Agreement as last revised. If You have purchased any App(s) on the Apps Marketplace, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect, including any changes made to this Agreement, as long as You take advantage of and use the App(s).

The obligations under this Agreement are in addition to (not in lieu of) any and all Provider T&Cs. Provider T&Cs cannot subtract from, modify, change and/or alter any term or condition arising under this Agreement. In the event of conflict or inconsistency between this Agreement and any Provider T&Cs, the terms and conditions under this Agreement (including any applicable CIrcle ITC policy or agreement incorporated by reference herein) govern and the conflicting or inconsistent provision(s) in the Provider T&Cs are void and of no effect to the extent of that conflict or inconsistency.
