Supplier may, in its sole discretion, elect to suspend or terminate access to, or use of the RisePath Services to anyone who violates these Terms.
If you register for a free trial of the RisePath Services, the applicable provisions of these Terms will govern that free trial.
The original language of these Terms is English. Supplier may make available translations for convenience. In case of conflicts between the original English version and any translation, the English version shall prevail.
The use of the RisePath Services is subject to acceptance of these Terms. To accept these Terms for itself or on behalf of a Client, a person must have the legal capacity to do so. In the case of an individual, the individual must be at least 18 years of age or have valid authorization from his/her legal representative or custodian.

b. for those RisePath Services and parts of the Web Site the use of which is not dependent on creating an Account, upon the moment of gaining access to such services.
You may not, without Supplier’s prior written consent, access the RisePath Services (i) for production purposes, (ii) if you are a competitor of RisePath, (iii) to monitor the availability, performance or functionality of the RisePath Services or (iv) for other benchmarking or competitive purposes.
Once accepted, these Terms remain effective until terminated as provided for herein.
Supplier reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of the Terms at any time by posting such changes on or through the Platform or the Risepath Services. Please check these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Risepath Services after such changes have been posted as provided above constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes. Such amended Terms will automatically be effective upon the earlier of (i) your continued use of the Risepath Services, or (ii) 30 days from posting of such modified Terms on or through the Platform. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the resolution of any dispute that arises between you and Supplier will be governed by the Terms in effect at the time such dispute arose.

(i) planned downtime (of which Supplier shall give advance electronic notice as provided in the Guidelines), and (ii) any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Supplier’s reasonable control, including, for example, an act of God, act of government, flood, fire, earthquake, civil unrest, act of terror, strike or other labor problem, Internet service provider failure or delay, or denial of service attack.
Supplier will maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Client Data, as described in the Guidelines. Those safeguards will include, but will not be limited to, measures for preventing access, use, modification or disclosure of Client Data by Supplier personnel except (a) to provide the RisePath Services and prevent or address service or technical problems, (b) as compelled by law in accordance with Section 7.4 (Compelled Disclosure) below, or (c) as a Client or User expressly permit in writing.
Supplier may use service providers to perform the Services. Supplier will make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that data transfers to service providers meet requirements applicable to Clients’ processing of data and will provide information on such data transfers in these Terms for Client’s consideration.
By agreeing to these Terms, the Client authorizes the Supplier (a general written authorization in the meaning of Article 28 (2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679) to engage the following service providers for the purposes of performing the Services. Supplier shall provide 10 business days advance notice before engaging any new service providers under the Supplier’s general authorization.
Certain Features, functions, parts or elements of the RisePath Services can be used or accessed only by holders of an Account. The person who wishes to create an Account must:
a. complete the sign-up form on the Web Site or alternative process provided by a Reseller if access to the RisePath Services is purchased from a Reseller; and
b. accept these Terms by clicking “Sign up” or other similar button
Each Client may have only one Account. If several persons need to use an Account on behalf of Client, Client must designate such persons as Users. Each such User shall be subject to the restrictions set forth in these Terms.
If Client has designated Users and granted them Authorization, such Users will be deemed to be authorized to act on behalf of Client when using the Account. Supplier is not responsible for and shall have no liability for verifying the validity of Authorization of any User. However, Supplier may, in its discretion, request additional information or proof of the person’s credentials. If Supplier is not certain if a User has been granted Authorization, Supplier may, in its sole discretion, prevent such User from accessing the RisePath Services.
A User may be associated with multiple Clients and Accounts. Deleting a User from one Account will not remove the User from the Platform if he/she is connected to multiple Accounts.
The Client and any User associated with an Account must provide Supplier with true, accurate, current, and complete information about the Client, Users or Account and keep it up to date.
Supplier shall provide Client with a username and password (“Login Credentials”) to be used to log in to its Account unless the Client uses the single sign-on Feature or another service to log in. These Login Credentials must not be used by multiple persons. If Client has designated several Users, each User will be provided with separate Login Credentials. Client and each User are responsible for keeping confidential all login credentials associated with an Account. Client must promptly notify Supplier:
a. of any disclosure, loss or unauthorized use of any Login Credentials;
b. of a User’s departure from the Client’s organization;
c. of a change in a User’s role in the Client’s organization;
d. of any termination of a User’s right for any reason.
Client may terminate these Terms at any time as provided in Section 17.
Supplier shall permanently delete the Account within six months of the effective date of the termination.
The use of an Account is subject to a Fee. Upon sign-up for an Account, the Client must select a Plan. Different rates apply to different Plans. The applicable Fee is charged in advance on monthly or annual payment intervals, unless agreed otherwise between parties. All Fees are non-refundable, i.e. there are no refunds or credits for periods where the Client did not use an activated Account, used it only partially, or deactivated the Account or terminated these Terms during an ongoing payment interval. If, after signing up, Client elects to upgrade to a more expensive Plan, the unused portion of any prepaid Fees shall be applied to the Fee of the more expensive Plan.
All Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies or duties applicable under any applicable law, unless stated otherwise stated herein. Client is solely responsible for the payment of such taxes, levies or duties.
Any Client has the right to upgrade or downgrade a current Plan at any time by selecting a new Plan among the collection of Plans determined by the Supplier. In such an event, the Client’s credit card on file with the Supplier will automatically be charged with a Fee for the next payment interval with the rate stipulated in the new Plan.
Downgrading of the current Plan may cause the loss of Features, functionality, or capacity of the Account, as well as the loss of Client Data.
A new Client may be entitled to a Free Trial, unless the Client has applied for the Account as a result of an ongoing marketing campaign organized by the Supplier in co-operation with its partners. The Client is not required to provide any credit card information during the period of Free Trial. If the period of Free Trial has expired, the Account will be automatically deactivated. In order to prevent deactivation or to reactivate the Account, the Client is required to select a suitable Plan and pay the first Fee. If the Client does not pay the first Fee within 2 weeks as of the expiry of the Free Trial, Supplier has the right to permanently delete the Account, including all Client Data therein.
In addition to the current collection of Plans, Supplier may offer special discounts and motivation schemes (for example finder’s fees, etc.).
The following provisions are applicable only if you purchase access to the RisePath Services directly from Supplier. If you purchase access to the RisePath Services through a Reseller, the payment terms are set forth in the agreement with your Reseller.
Supplier may seek pre-authorization of Client’s payment card account prior to your purchase of RisePath Services in order to verify that the card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. You authorize such payment card account to pay any amounts described herein, and authorize Supplier to charge all sums described in these Terms to such card account. You agree to provide Supplier updated information regarding your payment card account upon Supplier’s request and any time the information earlier provided is no longer valid.
In some markets Supplier may, if Client elects, request that Client complete a direct debit mandate to enable direct debit payments. In such cases Supplier shall comply with all applicable national rules and regulations related to direct debit payments.
If Supplier has not sought pre-authorization of your payment card, then before the end of each payment interval, Client will be issued an electronic invoice for payment of the Fee of the next payment interval. Client must pay the invoice by the due date indicated on the invoice.
Upon delay with any payments, Supplier may require the Client to pay interest on the delay (penalty for late payment) for the period as of the time the payment obligation falls due until conforming performance is rendered. The interest rate of penalty for late payment due 1) if RisePath OÜ is the Supplier, shall be the interest rate specified in §113 of the Law of Obligations Act of Estonia; 2) if RisePath UK is the Supplier, shall be 4% a year above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time, but at 4% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%; 3) if RisePath Inc is the Supplier, shall be 1% per month; provided, however, if any interest paid to RisePath Inc is determined to be in excess of the then legal maximum rate, then that portion of each interest payment representing an amount in excess of the then legal maximum rate shall be deemed a payment of amounts owing under Section 6.2. Upon calculation of the penalty for late payment, one year shall be deemed to contain 365 calendar days.
If the Client uploads Client Data to the Platform, such Client Data and any processing of such Client Data must be in compliance with these Terms and applicable law. All rights, title and interest in and to the Client Data belong to the Client or third persons (including Users, persons and Organizations) whether posted and/or uploaded by you or made available on or through the RisePath Services by Supplier. By uploading Client Data to the Platform, Client authorizes Supplier to process the Client Data. The Client is responsible for ensuring that:
a. the Client and any of the Users associated with the Account do not create, transmit, display or make otherwise available any Client Data that violates the terms of these Terms, the rights of Supplier, other Clients or Users, persons or Organizations or is harmful (for example viruses, worms, malware and other destructive codes), offensive, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful or otherwise unlawful; and
b. the Client and all of the Users associated with the Account have the necessary rights to use the Client Data, including to insert it into the Platform and process it by means of the Account.
Supplier does not guarantee any accuracy with respect to any information contained in any Client Data, and strongly recommends that you think carefully about what you transmit, submit or post to or through the RisePath Services. You understand that all information contained in Client Data is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Client Data originated. This means that Client, and not Supplier, is entirely responsible for all Client Data that is uploaded, posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the RisePath Services, as well as for any actions taken by the Suppliers or other Clients or Users as a result of such Client Data.
Supplier is not obliged to pre-screen, monitor or filter any Client Data or acts of its processing by the Client in order to discover any unlawful nature therein. However, if such unlawful Client Data or the action of its unlawful processing is discovered or brought to the attention of Supplier or if there is reason to believe that certain Client Data is unlawful, Supplier has the right to:
a. notify the Client of such unlawful Client Data;
b. deny its publication on the Web Site or its insertion to the System;
c. demand that the Client bring the unlawful Client Data into compliance with these Terms and applicable law;
d. temporarily or permanently remove the unlawful Client Data from the Web Site or Account, restrict access to it or delete it.
If Supplier is presented convincing evidence that the Client Data is not unlawful, Supplier may, at its sole discretion, restore such Client Data, which was removed from the Web Site or Account or access to which was restricted.
In addition, in the event Supplier believes in its sole discretion Client Data violates applicable laws, rules or regulations or these Terms, Supplier may (but has no obligation), to remove such Client Data at any time with or without notice.
Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, RisePath Inc complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and will remove Client Data from the Platform upon receipt of a compliant takedown notice.
RisePath OÜ as the data processor will assist the Client as the data controller in meeting the Client’s obligations under Regulation (EU) 2016/679, providing subject access, and allowing data subjects to exercise their rights under Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
Supplier may disclose a Client’s confidential information to the extent compelled by law to do so. In such instance, Supplier will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Client with prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and Client shall provide reasonable assistance, at its cost, if Client wishes to contest the disclosure. If Supplier is compelled by law to disclose Client’s confidential information as part of a civil proceeding to which Supplier is a party, and Client is not contesting the disclosure, Client will reimburse Supplier for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that confidential information.
Subject to these Terms, and the payment of the applicable service Fee, Supplier grants Client and its authorized users a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable license to use the RisePath Services to:
a. collect, store and organize Client Data, such as add new Persons and Organizations, create Pipelines and add Stages into these Pipelines, generate reports based on Client Data, add Deals into Stages and monitor their evolvement through the next Stages, add Products to be offered for sale to Persons and Organizations; add new Users and grant them Authorizations, assign Activities to a particular User;
b. modify and delete Client Data;
c. customize the standard Features or functionality of the RisePath Services;
d. receive reasonable help and guidance and from Supplier regarding the use of the RisePath Services.
If Supplier determines Client usage of the Services to be outside of the permitted and intended use as outlined herein, or bandwidth usage of the Service or any Features or functionality to be significantly excessive in relation to other Users, Supplier reserves the right to suspend respective Client Account, (or part thereof) until Client assures Supplier that Client shall refrain from further abuse of the Services.
Supplier shall provide reasonable technical support to Client and its authorized User at the reasonable request of the Client. Supplier shall respond to enquiries of support from a Client utilizing the contacts set forth below as soon as reasonably possible. Responding to enquiries of Clients and Users who have accepted these Terms but do not have an Account may be less expedient, or may not occur at all.
The contacts for all enquiries of support are:
a. instant messaging,
b. built-in notification application on the Web Page, or
c. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you purchased access to the RisePath Services from a Reseller, then first-line technical support will be provided by the Reseller and not by the Supplier.
Supplier reserves the right to modify the RisePath Services or any part or element thereof from time to time without prior notice, including, without limitation:
a. rebranding the RisePath Services at its sole discretion;
b. ceasing providing or discontinuing the development any particular RisePath Service or part or element of the Platform temporarily or permanently;
c. taking such action as is necessary to preserve Supplier’s rights upon any use of the RisePath Services that may be reasonably interpreted as violation of Supplier’s intellectual property rights, distribution of Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, malware, and other destructive activities or illegal activity.
As applicable, Client may be notified of such modifications when logging in to the Account. Modifications, including change in applicable rates for the RisePath Services, will become effective thirty (30) days before the effective date of such modification.
If the Client does not accept the modification, the Client shall notify Supplier or Reseller (if Client purchased access to the RisePath Services from a Reseller) before the effective date of the modification, and these Terms will terminate on the effective date of the modification. The Client’s continued use of the RisePath Services, or any part or element thereof, after the effective date of a modification shall indicate its consent to the modifications. Supplier shall not be liable to the Client or to any third person for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the RisePath Services, or any part or element thereof.
Supplier may from time to time make additional Features available through the RisePath Services, which may be subject to Additional Terms. The Client's use of any such Feature is subject to their acceptance of Additional Terms presented within the relevant Feature or these Terms of Service.
Supplier may offer certain Features of functionality for the purpose of testing and evaluation ("Beta Service" or “Beta Services”). The Supplier reserves the right to fully or partially discontinue, at any time and from time to time, temporarily or permanently, any of the Beta Services with or without notice to the Client. The Client agrees that the Supplier will not be liable to the Client or to any third party for any harm related to, arising out of the Client's use of the Beta Services, or caused by the modification, suspension or discontinuance of any of the Beta Services for any reason.
For the purposes of Article 28 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, these Terms constitute the data processing contract between the Client as the data controller and the Supplier as the data processor. The Client hereby instructs the Supplier to process the data as described in these Terms.
The Supplier provides the Platform where the Client, as the data controller, can collect, store and organize the personal data of data subjects determined by the Client.
The Platform has been designed to work as a sales CRM tool but, to the extent not regulated by these Terms, the Client decides how they use the Platform.
The Supplier will process data on behalf of the Client until the termination of the RisePath Services in accordance with these Terms. Upon termination, Supplier will store the Client’s data for a period of six months, should the Client wish to reopen the Account to resume the use of the RisePath Services or to export Client Data, unless instructed otherwise by the Client. After that, the contents of the account may be recoverable from Supplier’s backups for another three months. The Supplier deletes or returns all the personal data to the controller after the end of the provision of services relating to processing, and deletes existing copies unless Union or Member State law requires storage of the personal data.
The Client’s rights and obligations regarding Client Data are provided in sections 4 through 10 of these Terms. The Supplier ensures that persons authorised to process the personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
The Supplier takes all measures required pursuant to Article 32 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679. The Supplier undertakes to make available to the controller all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with their obligations and to allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted or mandated by the Client as the data controller.
Client and its authorized Users may use the RisePath Services and any part or element thereof only in the scope, with the means and for purposes as identified in these Terms and applicable law. By way of example, neither the Client nor any User may:
a. use the RisePath Services or any part or element thereof to commit a crime, breach any applicable law or entice or invite others to carry out such illegal actions;
b. copy, duplicate, distribute, modify, adapt, hack, create derivative works, reverse engineer or decompile the RisePath Services or any part or element thereof, or attempt to extract the source code thereof, unless (i) it is expressly allowed under applicable law, and (ii) to the extent that the Supplier is not permitted by that applicable law to exclude or limit the foregoing rights;
c. use the RisePath Services or any part or element thereof unless it has agreed to these Terms.
The Client or any User may not, without Supplier’s prior express written consent (e-mail, fax, Skype, etc.):
a. sell, resell, lease, license, sublicense, distribute, provide, disclose, divulge, exploit or otherwise grant Access or make the RisePath Services available in whole or in part to any third persons, unless such third person is another authorized User of the same Client;
b. use the RisePath Services or any part or element thereof in a scope, with means or for purposes other than those for which their functionality was created;
c. use the RisePath Services or any part or element thereof by means of programs that send them automatic enquiries or requests, unless such program has been made available by Supplier;
The RisePath Services, RisePath Materials, RisePath trade names and trademarks, and any parts or elements thereof are solely and exclusively owned and operated by Supplier and its third party vendors and hosting partners. RisePath Materials are protected by copyright, trade dress, patent, trade secrets, and trademark laws, international conventions and treaties, and all other relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights laws. Supplier, its affiliates and licensors retains all right, title and interest in such RisePath Services, RisePath Materials, RisePath trade names and trademarks, and any parts or elements. Your use of the RisePath Services and RisePath Materials, and any parts or elements does not grant to you any ownership right or intellectual property rights therein. Any commercial or promotional distribution, publishing or exploitation of the RisePath Materials is strictly prohibited unless you have received the express prior written permission from Supplier or the otherwise applicable rights holder. Supplier reserves all rights to the RisePath Services, RisePath Materials and RisePath trade names and trademarks not expressly granted in the Terms.
Subject to these Terms and the payment of the applicable service Fee, Supplier grants Client and its authorized users a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable license to download a single copy of any part of the Content solely for your personal, non-commercial use if you retain all copyright and proprietary notices that are contained in such part of the Content. You expressly acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership rights by downloading any copyrighted material from or through the Platform or the RisePath Services. You shall not copy, distribute or publish any Content or any information obtained or derived therefrom except as permitted on or through the RisePath Services or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
a. Supplier may use Client Data in an aggregated or anonymized format for research, educational and other similar purposes. Supplier may not otherwise use or display Client Data without Client’s written consent. Supplier respects your right to exclusive ownership of your Client Data. Unless specifically permitted by you, your use of the RisePath Services does not grant Supplier the license to use, reproduce, adapt, modify, publish or distribute the Client Data created by you or stored in your Account for Supplier’s commercial, marketing or any similar purpose. Client expressly grants Supplier the right to use and analyze aggregate system activity data associated with use of the RisePath Services by Client and its Users for the purposes of optimizing, improving or enhancing the way the RisePath Services operate, and to create new Features and functionality in connection with the RisePath Services in the sole discretion of Supplier.

The parties will act solely as independent contractors. These Terms shall not be construed as creating an agency, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary duty, or any other form of legal association between the Client and either Supplier, and the Client shall not represent to the contrary, whether expressly, by implication, appearance or otherwise. These Terms are not for the benefit of any third parties.
