Terms and Conditions
Updated December 29, 2019
This Services Subscription Agreement (the “Agreement“) is made between Revinate, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Revinate“) and each party (a “Customer“) that executes a Service Order (“Service Order”) for Revinate’s hospitality management services (the “Services“). Between Revinate and each Customer, the Agreement consists of these terms, each Service Order and each exhibit, addendum, and amendment of any of the foregoing. The “Effective Date” of this Agreement is date of Customer’s initial Service Order. By executing the initial Service Order, Customer agrees to all the terms set forth below.
1 Account Terms
1.1 Subscribing. Customers subscribe for Services by executing a Service Order with Revinate. The Service Order lists the Services start date and the initial term of the Customer’s subscription. Except as otherwise set forth on a Service Order, this Agreement will automatically renew for a period equal to the initial term unless either party notifies the other in writing of its intent not to renew at least 30 days prior to expiration of the then-current term. Following full execution of the Service Order, Customer may use the Services in accordance with the terms in the Service Order and the other provisions of this Agreement.
1.2 Orders by Affiliates and Property Managers. Customer’s Affiliates may, upon executing a new Service Order and agreeing to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement use the Services identified in that Service Order. Upon execution of a Service Order by Revinate and an Affiliate, the Affiliate will be bound by the provisions of this Agreement as if it was an original party hereto. “Affiliate” means: (a) an entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with a party to this Agreement at any time during the term of this Agreement, for so long as such ownership and control exists, provided such entity is not a competitor to Revinate or in the business of developing and offering products or technologies that are substantially similar to the Services, or (b) a property management company (“Manager“) that has negotiated an agreement with Revinate to provide Services to multiple properties that it manages, which may be owned by third parties.

2.2 Guest Communications. Certain Services permit Customers to send email, SMS, and other messages to their guests. The sending of commercial messages is regulated by law, including CAN-SPAM and the Telephone Consumer Privacy Act in the United States. SMS messaging is further regulated by mobile service carriers and by the policies and best practices of the Mobile Marketing Association and the CTIA, which collectively impose requirements regarding the integrity of SMS content and compliance with acceptable use policies. Customer is responsible for complying with all applicable laws, published rules and policies regarding communication with its guests. If a guest opts out of a specific form of messaging from Customer (e.g. SMS), Customer will update the Services accordingly.
2.3 Use of Proprietary Third-Party Content. Use of Proprietary Third-Party Content. Customer may not modify, republish, reproduce, post, transmit, sell, offer for sale, or redistribute Third-Party Content (as defined in section 3.4) without the prior written permission of Revinate and if applicable, the rights holder of Third-Party Content (such as industry research data). Customer must abide by all copyright notices, information, or restrictions related to any Third-Party Content.
3 Payment and Pricing Terms
Customer will pay Revinate in the currency described on a Service Order (or US Dollars if not specified) the fees in the amounts and at the times specified on the Service Order. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are due 30 days from the date of Revinate’s invoice, and all fees are non-cancelable and non-refundable. Overdue balances are subject to a service charge equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum legal interest rate allowed by law. Customer will be responsible for any sales, use, value added, excise, property withholding or similar tax and any related tariffs, and similar charges, except taxes based on Revinate’s net income. If Customer is required to pay any such taxes, Customer shall pay such taxes with no reduction or offset in the amounts payable to Revinate hereunder. If an applicable tax authority requires Revinate to pay any taxes that should have been payable by Customer, Revinate will advise Customer in writing, and Customer will promptly reimburse Revinate for the amounts paid. Revinate may suspend the Services until all undisputed payments are received.

Each party’s right to use the other party’s materials or data is limited to the rights provided herein.
5.2 What Revinate Owns. The Services (including all Revinate software, Third-Party Content and Revinate Confidential Information used to provide the Services) belong to Revinate and its licensors (if any). Even if the terms “purchase” and “sale” are used, Customer does not receive ownership rights in the Services and has only those license and use rights in this Agreement.
5.3 What Customer Owns. Customer Data and other Customer Confidential Information belong to Customer (or its guests and other third parties, if applicable). Nothing in this Agreement assigns any rights in that information from Customer to Revinate.
5.4 Ownership of Respective Trademarks.

5.5 Ownership of Content Received from Third Parties. Revinate gathers, stores, analyzes, displays, and uses a variety of information, such as: (a) publicly available reviews and hotel rankings posted on third-party web sites, feedback and information provided by guests at Customer facilities, posts from social media sites and forums, news articles, blog posts, photos, and videos, and (b) commercially available data regarding hospitality businesses and guest travel and hospitality trends, such as hotel occupancy rates and rate metrics, marketing engagement data, and guest travel information (collectively “Third-Party Content“). Some Third-Party Content is public information (such as online hotel reviews) and other Third-Party Content is proprietary to its creators (such as industry research data). Third-Party Content may be owned by the people or entities that publish the content, or by other parties.
6.1 Confidential Information. Unless information is deemed non-confidential under the following paragraph, all information disclosed by either party to the other during the term of this Agreement, whether in oral, written, graphic, or electronic form, is considered “Confidential Information“.

For example, Customer’s guest list is Customer’s Confidential Information and will be protected as provided below. Individual guests may post online reviews on third party sites such as Tripadvisor regarding their hotel visits. The names of such guests and their reviews are Third-Party Content and not Customer Confidential Information.
6.3 Nondisclosure. Revinate and Customer each agree that it will not disclose any Confidential Information of the other party to any person or entity except: (a) to agents of the receiving party who have a need to know such information, who have been informed of the receiving party’s confidentiality obligations under this Agreement, and who are subject to confidentiality agreements with the receiving party at least as protective of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information as this Agreement, or (b) pursuant to the terms of a valid and effective subpoena or court order, provided that the receiving party immediately notifies the disclosing party (to the extent permitted) of the existence, terms, and circumstances surrounding such a request so that the disclosing party may seek appropriate protective action. Neither party may use the other party’s Confidential Information in any directly competitive manner or for any purpose other than to exercise its rights and comply with its obligations under this Agreement.

The receiving party shall: (x) continue to extend the protections of this section to such Confidential Information and limit further use and disclosure of such Confidential Information to those purposes that make the return or destruction of such Confidential Information infeasible, and (y) comply with the preceding paragraph as soon as permitted under applicable laws or recipient’s internal record retention policy.
