Please check these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of the FastBridge 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 FastBridge 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 FastBridge will be governed by the Terms in effect at the time such dispute arose.

Protection of Client Data

FastBridge will maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of identifying personal data, reports, addresses, and other files, folders or documents in electronic form that a User of the Service (defined as a Client, or an employee, agent, or representative of a Client, who uses and/or accesses the Services) stores within the Service (“Client Data”). Those safeguards will include, but will not be limited to, measures for preventing access, use, modification or disclosure of Client Data by FastBridge personnel except (a) to provide the FastBridge Services and prevent or address service or technical problems, (b) as compelled by law in accordance with Section Compelled Disclosure below, or (c) as a Client or User expressly permit in writing.

FastBridge may use service providers to perform the Services. FastBridge 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.

Telecom contract

Terms of telecom services are contained in your service agreement and incorporated by reference.

Client Data

Uploading Client Data to platform

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 FastBridge Services by FastBridge. By uploading Client Data to the platform, Client authorizes FastBridge to process the Client Data. The Client is responsible for ensuring that:

  1. 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 FastBridge, 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
  2. 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.

No Guarantee of Accuracy

FastBridge 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 FastBridge 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 FastBridge, is entirely responsible for all Client Data that is uploaded, posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the FastBridge Services, as well as for any actions taken by the FastBridge s or other Clients or Users as a result of such Client Data.

Unlawful Client Data

FastBridge 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 FastBridge or if there is reason to believe that certain Client Data is unlawful, FastBridge has the right to:

  1. notify the Client of such unlawful Client Data;
  2. deny its publication on the web site or its insertion to the system;
  3. demand that the Client bring the unlawful Client Data into compliance with these Terms and applicable law;
  4. temporarily or permanently remove the unlawful Client Data from the web site or account, restrict access to it or delete it.

If FastBridge is presented convincing evidence that the Client Data is not unlawful, FastBridge 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 FastBridge believes in its sole discretion Client Data violates applicable laws, rules or regulations or these Terms, FastBridge 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, FastBridge complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and will remove Client Data from the platform upon receipt of a compliant takedown notice.

Compelled Disclosure

FastBridge may disclose a Client’s confidential information to the extent compelled by law to do so. In such instance, FastBridge 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 FastBridge is compelled by law to disclose Client’s confidential information as part of a civil proceeding to which FastBridge is a party, and Client is not contesting the disclosure, Client will reimburse FastBridge for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that confidential information.
