Copyright © 2020 Tealbook, Inc. All rights reserved.

Access to the Services. The Services are owned and copyrighted by

Tealbook, Inc., and/or its affiliates. All rights not expressly granted hereunder

are reserved by us, or, if applicable, our licensors. A Member cannot register

as both a Client and a Supplier or create separate tealbook® accounts as a

Client and a Supplier, without our written preapproval. Each SOW shall specify

the number of Users permitted with the applicable license. If there is no limit

stated in a SOW for the number of Users, then the license is an enterprise

license, and Client may designate those named employees or contractors to

have User access. User ID’s and passwords are for individual use only, and

each User is required to create an account. Users are solely responsible for

securing their tealbook® account ID and password, which may not be shared

with other Users or third parties. User registration is the responsibility of the

Client’s administrator, and Client agrees to immediately notify us of any actual

or suspected unauthorized use. Client is responsible for any loss resulting from

any unauthorized use of its or its Users’ tealbook® access. This Site is for

legitimate and legal business purposes, i.e., as a platform for connecting

registered Suppliers and Clients and for activities related thereto. This Site is

not a personal or public social networking website or platform and is not

intended for such personal, non-business uses, and Client agrees that it shall

not provide personal, non-business information to the Site.

To register for a Supplier account, you must represent a business entity in

good standing, possessing all licenses, permits, registrations, certifications,

rights, insurances, etc., legally required for you to offer and sell your goods

and/or services, and you agree to maintain same for so long as you are a

Supplier. You must also ensure that all Supplier Users are individuals at least

18 years of age and employed by, or acting under, your authority as a business

entity. Each Supplier is responsible for ensuring that any Supplier User

who is no longer eligible to have access to its Supplier account (e.g.,

because he or she no longer works for, or is authorized by the Supplier)

is denied such access, by having the Supplier’s user administrator delete

that person’s account or otherwise change administrative settings within

the Supplier account. The first person to register a Supplier account will be

designated as the Supplier’s user administrator, and that person may thereafter

assign that role to another Supplier User.

To register for a Client account, you must represent a business entity in good

standing, possessing all licenses, permits, registrations, certifications, rights,

insurances, etc., legally required for you to purchase goods and/or services

from Suppliers, and you agree to maintain same for so long as you are a

Member. You must also ensure that all Client Users are individuals at least 18

years of age and employed by, or acting under, your authority as a business

entity. Each Client is responsible for ensuring that any Client User who is

no longer eligible to have access to its Client account (e.g., because he

or she no longer works for or is authorized by you) is denied such access,

by having your user administrator delete that person’s account or

otherwise change administrative settings within your account. The first

person to register a Client account will be designated as the user administrator,

and that person may thereafter assign that role to another Client User.

Account registration requires you to provide certain information. It is a condition

of your use of this Site and the Services that all the information you provide as

part of registration and otherwise in connection with your tealbook® account will

be correct, current, and complete to the best of your knowledge. If we believe

the information you provide is not correct, current, or complete, we have the

right to refuse you access to this Site or any of its resources, to correct or

remove your information, to suspend your access to the Services or registration

as a Client (or Supplier) at any time until such information is corrected.

You may only use this Site for legitimate and legal business purposes, i.e., as

a platform for connecting registered Suppliers and Clients and for activities

related thereto. This Site is not a personal or public social networking website

or platform and is not intended for such personal, non-business uses, and you

should not provide personal, non-business information to the Site.

may not authorize any other party to: (i) co-brand this Site, or (ii) frame this Site,

or (iii) hyper-link to this Site, without the express prior written permission of an

authorized representative of us. For purposes of these Terms of Service, ‘‘cobranding’’

means to display a name, logo, trade-mark, or other means of

reasonably likely to give the impression that we are engaged in a cooperative

commercial relationship, such as a joint venture, joint ownership, joint

marketing, or sponsorship relationship with a third-party.

data, research, business, clients, customers and business practices of the party

such Confidential Information to any other third party shall be only with the prior

written consent of the Disclosing Party. However a Party may disclose the other

Party’s Confidential Information only to the extent required by any law or

regulation; provided that the Party required to make such a disclosure uses

efforts to give the other Party reasonable advance notice of such required

disclosure, to the extent legally permissible, in order to enable the other Party

to prevent or limit such disclosure.

All Confidential Information remains the sole and exclusive property of the

Disclosing Party. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that except as

expressly set out in this Agreement, no rights are otherwise granted to the

Receiving Party, by way of license or otherwise, in or to any Confidential

Information of the Disclosing Party, or proprietary rights or any patent,

trademarks, copyright or other intellectual property of the Disclosing Party,

except as specified in this Agreement. Confidential Information will not include

information which:

(i) is now or thereafter becomes generally known or available to

the public, through no default act or omission by the

Receiving Party; or

information from the Disclosing Party and without restriction

as to use or disclosure; or

party who has the right to disclose it and who provides it

without restriction as to use or disclosure; or

or consisting of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and all copies

thereof (including electronic copies). However, a Party may retain a copy of
