Standard School Agreement

This document creates an agreement between your school (“School”) and Remind101, Inc. (“Remind”). This Agreement is effective on the date the Agreement is signed (the “Effective Date”). Only sign if you have read and understood this Agreement and have full legal authority to sign agreements binding your School.

Security And Data Transfer

Remind uses commercially reasonable security standards. Remind and the third party vendors Remind relies upon to process School Customer Data (“Customer Data”) have implemented at least industry standard systems and procedures to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity and prevent against unauthorized access to or use of Customer Data. To provide the Services, Remind may transfer, store and process Customer Data in the United States or any other country in which Remind or its third party vendors maintain facilities. By using the Services, your School consents to this transfer, processing and storage.

Modifications To The Services

Remind may make commercially reasonable changes to our Services, Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, including changing third party providers. Your School will facilitate any commercially reasonable changes to the Services, if necessary.  If Remind makes a material change, Remind will inform the school by posting any change to our website or messaging the School directly. Those changes are final unless the School objects in writing within 30 days.

 

Customer Obligations

Only use Remind’s Services as they are intended (Community Guidelines are available at www.remind.com/community-guidelines). On occasion, we may improve the Services with new applications, features or functionality. The School should specify one or more Administrators. Your school is responsible for: (a) designating those individuals who are authorized to access the Admin Account(s); and, (b) ensuring that all activities that occur in connection with the Admin Account(s) comply with the Agreement. Remind is a school communication tool, which means we cannot and will not manage your School’s use of the Services or the behavior of your designated Administrators.

End User And Parental Consent

Administrators may access, monitor, use, or disclose data available so make sure that your School obtains the consent of End Users and Parents.  Specifically, your School is responsible for compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, including obtaining parental consent for collection of personal information in the Services.

No Unauthorized Use

Your School agrees not to let unauthorized people use the Services, to tell Remind promptly if you become aware of any unauthorized use, and to block any third party from selling, reselling, leasing or reverse engineering Remind’s Services to offer a competing product.  

    

Suspension

Remind will suspend the account of any End User who violates our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy and we may suspend an account in the event of an Emergency Security Issue.

Confidential Information

Neither party will disclose the other’s Confidential Information, except to Affiliates, employees, independent contractors and agents who need to know it and who have agreed in writing to keep it confidential. Each party may disclose the other party's Confidential Information when required by law but only after it, if legally permissible: (a) uses commercially reasonable efforts to notify the other party; and (b) gives the other party the chance to challenge the disclosure.

Intellectual Property Rights

Unless explicitly stated, this Agreement does not grant either party any rights, implied or otherwise, to the other's content or any of the other's intellectual property. Your School owns all Intellectual Property Rights in Customer Data, and Remind owns all Intellectual Property Rights in the Services.

Publicity

Your School permits Remind to include the School’s name or Brand Features in a list of Remind customers, online or in promotional materials, and to verbally reference the School as a customer.

Ads

Remind complies with applicable laws and will not serve behaviorally targeted ads unless permitted by those laws.

Representations, Warranties And Disclaimers

Each party provides the other all standard representations, warranties and disclaimers that are legally applicable and no others. Your School agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, including, but not limited to, obtaining parental consent concerning collection and use of students' personal information for the Services.

 

Payment; Interest Charged For Late Payments

Unless specified otherwise in the Order Form, all Fees are due thirty days from the invoice date. We will charge interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date for any delinquent payments until paid in full. Your School will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred by Remind in collecting delinquent amounts.

Purchase Orders

If your School requires a Purchase Order number on its invoice, you must inform Remind and issue a Purchase Order to Remind. Any terms and conditions on a Purchase Order do not apply to this Agreement and are null and void. This Agreement, in conjunction with our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, are our complete Agreement.

 

Taxes

Your School is responsible for any Taxes, and you will pay Remind in full for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If Remind is obligated to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to your School, unless your School provides Remind with a valid tax exemption certificate. If your School is required by law to withhold any Taxes from its payments to Remind, you must provide Remind with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation.

Term; Fees

This Agreement will remain in effect for the Term as stated in the Order Form.  Unless the parties agree otherwise in writing, End User Accounts added during any Services Term will have a prorated term ending on the last day of that Services Term. At the end of each Services Term, the Services (and all End User Accounts previously purchased for a Fee) will automatically renew for an additional Services Term of twelve months. If either party does not want the Services to renew, then it must notify the other party in writing at least 60 days prior to the end of the current Services Term. This notice of non-renewal will be effective upon the conclusion of the current Services Term.

Remind can revise its rates for Services that the School has purchased for a Fee for the following Services Term by providing the School written notice (which may be by email) at least 75 days prior to the start of the subsequent Services Term.

Termination

Either party may suspend performance or terminate this Agreement if: (i) the other party is in material breach of the Agreement and fails to cure that breach within thirty days after receipt of written notice; (ii) the other party ceases its operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within ninety days; or (iii) the other party is in material breach of this Agreement more than two times notwithstanding any cure of such breaches.

Your School may terminate this Agreement for any reason (or no reason) with thirty days prior written notice to Remind,  but your School will remain obligated to pay any Fees for Services applicable to the remainder of the then-current Services Term for those Services. Remind may terminate this Agreement and cease providing services if Customer fails to pay invoices within a timely fashion.

If this Agreement terminates, then: (i) the rights granted by one party to the other will cease immediately; (ii) Remind will provide Customer access to, and the ability to export, the Customer Data for a commercially reasonable period of time at Remind's then-current rates, if applicable, for the Services; (iii) after a commercially reasonable period of time and only upon explicit, written request of your School, Remind will delete Customer Data by overwriting it over time; and, (iv) upon request each party will promptly use commercially reasonable efforts to return or destroy all other Confidential Information of the other party.
