        “Spam” means: (1) an electronic message as to which: (a) the recipient’s personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients; and (b) the recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; or (2) any message the sending of which would violate U.S. or non-U.S. laws or regulations governing sending of emails to multiple recipients, including but not limited to the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act, the Canadian Anti-SPAM Legislation know as Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2012-183, Council Directive 2002/58/EC, of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 July 2002 Concerning the Processing of Personal Data and the Protection of Privacy in the Electronic Communications Sector (Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications) (as amended by Council Directive 2009/136/EC), and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation)(“GDPR”).

Client shall also be responsible for any and all collections fees, including reasonable attorney’s fees, costs of suit, expert fees, deposition fees and court costs, incurred by Accurate Append to collect any sums due hereunder. In the event of a Good Faith Claim, Client shall promptly make payment on all Fees under the applicable invoice not subject to the Good Faith Claim, and proceed diligently to resolve the dispute with Accurate Append, including elevation of the issue to executive-level authorized representatives of Client. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Accurate Append’s acceptance of partial payments shall not waive any of Accurate Append’s rights to full payment or other remedies.
  4. Term and Termination.
    1. Initial Term. The term of this Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and expire at the end of the term set forth in the Subscription Proposal entered into contemporaneously with this Agreement (the “Initial Term”).

    3. Termination
      1. For Cause. Either Party (the “Non-Breaching Party”) may terminate this Agreement, or any placement that is affected by a material breach, in the event that the other Party (the “Breaching Party”) has materially breached this Agreement, and such breach has continued for fifteen (15) days (the “Cure Period”) after written notice is provided to the Breaching Party by the Non-Breaching Party. Any such notice provided must describe the alleged material breach in sufficient detail to put the Breaching Party on notice.
  5. Client Content; Security
    1. Client Content. As between Client and Accurate Append, Client shall retain all rights, title, and ownership in the Client Content (as defined below). Client, not Accurate Append, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and ownership or right to use all Client Content, and Accurate Append shall not be responsible or liable to monitor, correct, delete or restore any Client Content that has been created, damaged, destroyed or lost by Client, or that Client has failed to properly save or store, in its use of the Services. “Client Content” means any data, information, or material provided or submitted by or on behalf of Client. Client Content input data typically includes, but is not limited to, first name, last name, street address, city, state, and postal code.
    2. Security. Client understands that data minimization is an information security best practice. Therefore, Client agrees to only submit personally identifiable information (“PII”) to Accurate Append where necessary for performance of the Services. Accurate Append shall comply with all applicable statutes, regulations, ordinances and official governmental directives for protecting the privacy of PII in Client Content. “PII” means any information that alone, or in combination with other information that the organization has, or is likely to have access to, can or does identify a living person, or can be directly linked to a living person. Examples of PII include, but are not limited to: name; name of parents or other family members, including maiden name of the person’s mother; address of the person or their family; telephone number; and indirect identifiers, including date of birth, place of birth, email, social media address or other electronic address. In the case of any legal or regulatory obligation of Accurate Append to disclose Client Content, to the extent permitted by law, Accurate Append shall (i) promptly notify Client; (ii) limit any disclosure to the minimum required by law; and (iii) to the extent possible, request that such information be kept confidential.
    3. Sensitive PII. Client hereby represents, warrants, and covenants that the Client Content shall not contain any Sensitive PII. “Sensitive PII” means categories of PII that are subject to specific requirements under U.S. or non-U.S. law and that applicable laws either define as sensitive or consider sensitive because unauthorized disclosure could cause serious harm to the person who is the subject of the PII. Examples of Sensitive PII include, but are not limited to: Social Security, Driver’s License, Taxpayer Identification, Passport, or other government identification numbers; any information regarding an individual’s medical history, mental or physical condition, or medical treatment or diagnosis by a health care professional (including genetic data); financial account information, including checking/savings account, credit or debit card numbers, or other information that would permit access to a person’s financial account or resources; health insurance policy or subscriber identification number; and race or ethnic origin.
    4. Security of Client Content. Accurate Append does not cache any Client Content 14 days beyond the append and Client Content is never made available to any third party or used for any purpose other than to complete the Services ordered by the Client. All Client files, both Client Content (input) and Client’s appended files (output), can be programmed to be deleted immediately following retrieval of completed file by the Client. Such Client files will only be deleted if Accurate Append’s receives a written request from Client that such data should be deleted.

      Accurate Append agrees to implement the technical and organizational measures set forth at to ensure the security of Client Content while it is held, stored or used by Accurate Append.

      Accurate Append further agrees that it will monitor and test its data safeguards from time to time, and further agrees to adjust its data safeguards from time to time in light of relevant circumstances or the results of any relevant testing or monitoring. If Accurate Append suspects or becomes aware of any unauthorized access to any Client Content  by any unauthorized person or third party, or becomes aware of any other security breach relating to Client Content data held or stored by Accurate Append under this Agreement or in connection with the performance of the services performed under this Agreement, Accurate Append shall immediately notify Client in writing and shall fully cooperate with Client at Accurate Append’s expense to prevent, mitigate, rectify or stop such data breach (“Data Breach”). In the event of such Data Breach, Accurate Append shall fully and immediately comply with applicable laws and shall take the appropriate steps to remedy such Data Breach.

      All Client Content to which Accurate Append has access under this Agreement, as between Accurate Append and Client, will remain the property of Client. Client hereby consents to the use, processing and/or disclosure of Client Content only for the purposes described herein and to the extent such use or processing is necessary for Accurate Append to carry out its duties and responsibilities under this Agreement, or as required by law. All Client Content delivered to Accurate Append shall be stored in the United States and shall not be transferred to any other countries or jurisdictions without the prior written consent of Client.
