Demyst Data Terms of Service
Demyst Data deals in the business of data. Inherent with this business are special considerations and rules, both domestic
and international, regarding the use, storage, destruction, and sharing of data.
Following are the Demyst subscriber terms and conditions (“Subscriber Terms and Conditions”); these terms and conditions are in addition to, and serve to supplement (except where expressly noted otherwise), the Website Terms of Service:
After you Login to the Demyst Software Product(s), you will have access to preview the offerings provided by our participating third-party data providers (“Data Provider” or “Data Providers”). Per existing Demyst agreements with the Data Providers, certain Demyst subscription products and software product licenses are subject to vendor-specific, additional terms and conditions (the “AT&C”).
Should You decide to utilize one or more of our Data Providers offerings using our Software Product(s), You will then submit an order, and completion of the order is on the additional conditions of Your being approved as an authorized End User and Your acceptance of the applicable AT&C’s. Approval is subject to a review by a Demyst Support Team member to ensure security compliance.
- Demyst grants to You, and You hereby accept, a non-transferrable, non-exclusive, limited license, without any right to sublicense, during the Term (as defined below), to access and use the Software Product(s) and Content, solely for the Permitted Purposes (as defined below), and subject to any AT&C specific to the applicable Data Provider. For avoidance of doubt, Your use and this license shall be for internal test and evaluation purposes only, unless expressly provided otherwise in writing.
- Content shall mean to include the intellectual property associated with the Software Product(s), including any documentation and updates, and that provided by third party licensors (the “Data Providers”), including appended returns and any derivative work thereof. Demyst disclaims any responsibility, and makes no representations or warranties, as to the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of the Content provided by Data Providers.
- When You sign up to use the Software Product(s), You will be asked to create an account and establish a password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your password and You are entirely and solely responsible for all activity made by You or anyone You allow to use Your account. You agree to safeguard Your account password from access by others, and to reimburse Demyst for any direct losses incurred as a result of a breach of this Section 3. You agree to maintain and promptly update the registration information to keep it accurate and complete. Demyst has the right to disable any user name, password or other identifier, whether chosen by You or provided by Demyst, at any time, in its sole discretion for any or no reason.
- Internal testing and evaluation only, or as otherwise expressly provided for in an Agreement or in the applicable AT&C.
- Unless otherwise provided for in an Agreement or in the applicable AT&C, either party may terminate this Services Agreement upon 90 days prior written notice before the end of the initial term or anniversary date of a renewal term.
- Upon Termination or non-renewal, Your license to access and use the Software Product(s) shall immediately cease, and You agree that all Content, including any derivative work, will be deleted and destroyed within 30 days of termination or non-renewal. Upon request, You will provide a written confirmation of the destruction. Likewise, Demyst agrees that all Submitted Data and Return Data (both as defined below), will be deleted and destroyed within 30 days of termination or non-renewal. Upon request, Demyst will provide a written confirmation of the destruction. The Demyst agreements with its Data Providers generally require equal or stricter destruction requirements imposed upon the Data Provider for Submitted Data.
- YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE AGREEMENTS BETWEEN DEMSYT AND ITS DATA PROVIDERS MAY REQUIRE:
- 1) THAT, IN THE COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, THE SUBMITTED DATA MAY BE TRANSFERRED AND RESIDE IN THE DATA PROVIDER SERVERS TEMPORARILY; AND
- 2) THAT DEMYST PUT ITS END USERS ON NOTICE OF THEIR DESTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS FOR BOTH SUBMITTED DATA AND RETURN DATA, INCLUDING ANY DERIVATIVE WORK, FOLLOWING A TERMINATION OR NON-RENEWAL.
- Demyst is not a consumer reporting agency. You may use the Software Product(s) and Content to support Your own internal processes and decisions, but may not deny any service or access to a service to a consumer based on the conclusions drawn therefrom. Examples of types of service include eligibility for credit or insurance, employment decisions and any other purpose described in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C.A. 1681b). You shall not in connection with Your use of the Software Product(s) and all Content therein violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, statute, ordinance, rule or regulation, including without limitation those relating to data privacy, competition or antitrust.
- You shall not (and will not allow any third party to): (i) copy, reproduce or modify the Software Product(s) or Content (or any component thereof), (ii) rent, sell, lease or otherwise transfer the Software Product(s) or Content to, or use the Software Product(s) or Content for the benefit of any third party, (iii) reverse assemble, reverse compile or reverse engineer the Software Product(s), or otherwise attempt to discover any of the source code or underlying ideas or algorithms of the Software Product(s).
- You may not use any linking, deep-linking, framing or page-scraping technology, robots, spiders or other automatic devices, programs, algorithms or methodologies, or any similar or equivalent manual processes, to access, acquire, copy, distribute, display or monitor any portion of the Software Product(s) or any Content, or in any way reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Software Product(s) or any Content, to obtain or attempt to obtain any materials, documents or information through any means not purposely made available through this website.
- Fees will generally consist of an annual access charge and a per use returned data charge. The Fees, payable solely in US Dollars, will be set forth in the applicable AT&C, or as otherwise expressly provided for in an Agreement. Certain Content is provided at no charge, subject to the applicable AT&C.
- You agree to pay all amounts invoiced within thirty (30) days of receipt of invoice. Any payment that is not paid when due will accrue interest monthly at one (1) percent or such other lesser percentage that represents the maximum permitted under applicable law. For any undisputed fees that are not paid when due, Demyst reserves the right to suspend or terminate Your use of the Software Product(s). You will be responsible for all collection costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees that Demyst incurs to collect any unpaid bills. Fees are nonrefundable
- In the course of utilizing the Software Product(s), You may be required to upload .csv input files (“Submitted Data”) to receive the enriched batch of data in return (“Return Data”).

The parties agree that all Confidential Information shall be kept in strict confidence, protected from unauthorized disclosure by reasonable security precautions, and shall be used only in the performance of the respective party’s obligations hereunder. Neither party shall disclose such Confidential Information, whether directly or indirectly, to any third party without the prior written approval of the other, and all Confidential Information of the Discloser that is disclosed to the Recipient shall remain the sole property of the Discloser (or its licensors).
- Confidential Information shall not include information that can be established by contemporaneous, clear and convincing written evidence and that is: a) lawfully received free of restriction from another source having the right to provide Confidential Information; b) in the public domain through no fault of a Recipient; however, this exclusion does not apply to nonpublic personal information; c) at the time of disclosure to a Recipient by a Discloser was known to such Recipient to be free of restriction; however, this exclusion does not apply to nonpublic personal information; d) is independently developed by or on behalf of a Recipient without reference to or use of the affected Discloser's Confidential Information; or e) a Discloser agrees in writing is free of such restrictions.
- Recipient acknowledges that certain Confidential Information of Discloser may be deemed to be a trade secret (as that term is defined by the Uniform Trade Secrets Act) and the Recipient will protect such trade secret(s) for as long as, and to the extent that, such Confidential Information remains a trade secret. With respect to any Confidential information not deemed a trade secret, the Recipient’s obligations under this Agreement will expire three (3) years after the Recipient’s receipt of that Confidential Information.
- The Software Product(s) and Content are provided “AS IS,” without warranties, conditions, representations, or guarantees of any kind, either express, implied, statutory, or otherwise, including but not limited to any implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, satisfactory quality, title, non-infringement or fitness for a particular purpose. Demyst does not warrant the operation of its offerings will be uninterrupted or error free.
