Content – The Content published by ViewsIQ through the Service, this Site, including, but not limited to, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, visual design elements, concepts, and copy are copyright © ViewsIQ Inc. All rights reserved. You may not duplicate, copy, or reuse any portion of the Content without express written permission from ViewsIQ. All Content uploaded or published by you via the Service must comply with copyright laws in your jurisdiction.

Customer and Subscriber Data – Customer and Subscriber data ("Data"), pertaining to scans or any derivatives stored in the Service will remain the sole and exclusive property of the Customer and Subscriber. ViewsIQ is provided a license to the Data for the sole and exclusive purpose of providing the Services, including a license to store, record, transmit, maintain, and display the Data as necessary for the delivery of the Service. Other than its security obligations below (Security of Data), ViewsIQ assumes no responsibility or liability for Data, and the Subscriber shall be solely responsible for the consequences of using, disclosing, storing, or transmitting it.

Sensitive Subscriber Data - Unless the Customer and Subscriber has entered into a written agreement with us to the contrary, the Customer and Subscriber acknowledges that we are not a Business Associate or subcontractor (as defined in HIPAA). The Customer and Subscriber must not submit, collect or use any “Personal Health Information” as defined in 45 CFR §160.103 (“PHI”) of US Law, with or to the Service. The Customer and Subscriber agrees that we have no liability for PHI received from the Customer and Subscriber.

Access to Customer and Subscriber Data ("Data") – The operation of the Services requires that some ViewsIQ employees have access to the systems which store and process Data. For example, to diagnose a problem a Customer or Subscriber is having with the Service, we may need to access the Data. These employees are prohibited from using these permissions to view the Data unless it is necessary to do so and if required will do so in compliance with the ViewsIQ Security and Privacy Policy.

Security of the Data – the ViewsIQ service is built as a multi-tenant, Software-as-a-Service platform. The Data is secured between Customers and Subscribers. Sharing of information with Subscribers is possible within the platform through the Customer granting external access, but this function can only be enabled by the Customer wishing to share data, not another Subscriber or ViewsIQ.

You may terminate this Agreement at any time by ceasing all use of the Service and notifying ViewsIQ through your Account. ViewsIQ may terminate this Agreement and your access to all or any part of the Service at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately, if it believes, in its sole judgement, that you have breached or may breach any term or condition of this Agreement.

ViewsIQ can terminate the Service immediately as part of a general shut down of our Service. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
