DSA shall not be responsible for any losses attributable to any downtime or system failure.
Permitted Use and Access/Compliance with Laws and Regulations. The Client shall be responsible at all times for (i) providing the identities of its campus security authorities who will be accessing the Training Program to DSA and ensuring that only its duly authorized campus security authorities or administrative personnel ("Client’s End Users") employed by the institution or employed at the institution through a sub-contractor, such as Aramark, or other company providing direct services to the Client institution, have access to the Training Program, and (ii) the conduct of its employees and agents with respect to the system and the Training Program and (iii) ensuring its own compliance with any federal, state and local regulations.

Defined/Restrictions. End Users shall be restricted to those certain employees, agents, affiliates of Client who fall within the definition of “Campus Security Authority” under the Clery Act or “Responsible Employees under Title IX, to which DSA grants limited access to the System and Training Programs in accordance with this Agreement ("Client’s End Users"). Client agrees that Client must itself determine whether Client can share access to and/or use of information in the System with any prospective Client's End User. Upon execution of this Agreement or within 30 business days following execution, Client shall provide DSA with documentation in the training platform that generally identifies those individuals and entities that Client intends to be Client's End Users, by name, title and department.
Responsibility for Client's End Users. Client shall be solely and entirely responsible for the acts or omissions of all Client's End Users, and will ensure that all Client's End Users comply with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. DSA nor DialogEDU shall be liable or responsible for any Client's postings or communications, other acts, or omissions, including the quality or accuracy of any information posted on the System. In the event of any dispute between Client and a Client's End User, Client agrees to release and hold harmless DialogEDU and DSA, its directors, shareholders, agents and employees from any claims and damages of every nature (including actual, special, incidental and consequential damages), known and unknown, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute.
Passwords and Security. Client shall not allow any third party (other than a Client's End User) to access the Training Program and System using a user name and password of Client or obtained by the Client. Client is solely and entirely responsible for any use of the Training Program and System via a user name and password of Client or a Client's End User. Immediately upon discovery of unauthorized use of a user name and password of Client or a Client's End User, Client will promptly notify DSA so that a new password may be issued. Client will be liable for any unauthorized use of the Training Program and System until Client notifies DSA of the security breach. Client agrees to not invade a Client's End User’s privacy. Client shall not breach or attempt to breach the security of a Client's End User's computer, software or data without the knowledge and express consent of such Client's End User. Use or distribution of tools designed for compromising privacy or security, in connection with the Training Program, Site or System, is strictly prohibited.
Information Posted on the System. DSA is not obligated under this Agreement or otherwise to review the substance of documents posted on the Training Program or System by the Client for the client’s end users. Client is solely responsible for information that it posts on the Training Program or System. DSA does not endorse or attest to the accuracy of any information posted on the System by the Client. Client agrees that DSA and DialogEDU have no obligation to monitor the content on the Site, the System or links to other web sites, and expressly disclaims any responsibility of DialogEDU or DSA to filter any such content.
Failure to comply with these guidelines can result in termination of access to the System and/or termination of this Agreement.
Client Representations. Client represents, warrants and agrees that Client and its End Users will not:
a. falsify or misrepresent any personal or business information regarding their identity or intentions with respect to any matter;
b. use, reproduce, distribute, publish or communicate any information obtained from the System or Site for any commercial reason, unless such activity has been expressly approved in writing by DSA.
No Resale of Access or Services of the System. Client's right to use the System is limited solely to Client and Client’s End Users. Client may not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell or resell access to or any other services relating to the System, without the advanced, express written consent of DSA.
No partnership/joint venture. The parties are independent of each other and acknowledge that no partnership or joint venture arises from this Agreement and that no fiduciary relationship is created between them. No provision of this Agreement is intended or shall be construed to provide or create any third party beneficiary rights of any kind in any third party.
Entire Agreement/Governing Law/Venue/Fees. This Agreement represents the entire agreement of the Parties. Its terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware. Any disputes shall be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Delaware. If any dispute between Client and DSA were to result in litigation, the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
User Licenses. Each person added to the system uses a license. The client purchases a specified number of licenses, one for each user, upon completing the purchase. The user can take any single class or any combination of the classes available in the training center, as part of the license purchased by the client for each user. It is a violation of the license agreement to add users into the system, have them take the training, and then remove and replace them with different users. DSA staff members actively review the site activity to identify violations of the license agreement. Institutions will be billed for the actual number of users who take the training and will be billed an additional $500.00 license violation fee in instances where a client institution violates the license agreement. This fee is intended to cover the administrative costs that DSA incurs to identify and respond to these violations.
In an effort to be more than fair to our clients, DSA does allow institutions to re-use a license, in what we deem to be a legitimate case. This means that if a user leaves the institution, we allow his/her replacement to be added to the system using the same license. We do not invoice our clients for another “license” under this scenario. In these circumstances, campus administrators have the ability to deactivate the user who left and add his/her replacement into the system. DSA reserves the right to request verification showing that the individual who was removed from the system is no longer with your institution.
Client agrees and acknowledges that DSA may amend the Client and End User Agreement from time to time by providing Client with notice of such as amendment, by electronic mail or otherwise.
