Your continued use of the Services after the updated Agreement is posted to the Services constitutes your acceptance to be bound by any changes.
1. Nature of the Services
1. 1. General. The Services allow you to access certain information or content (which may include data, text, photos, videos, the user or visual interfaces, logos, designs, or other materials or content). On the condition that you comply with all obligations under this Agreement, Spiky hereby grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, non-transferable right to access and use the Services, for your internal use per our documentation and policies. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to or may be construed as, conferring by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or other grant of right to use any patent, copyright, trademark, service mark, or other intellectual property of Spiky or any third party, except as expressly provided in this Agreement. You agree not to remove, obscure or modify any trademark legend or copyright notice, author attribution, or other notice placed on or contained within the Services. All rights not otherwise expressly granted by this Agreement are reserved to Spiky. We reserve the right to modify the Services, at our sole discretion, at any time.
1. 2. Registration. The Services include proprietary analytical software to evaluate and measure human engagement in online recorded meetings, training, and educational programs developed by Spiky (the “Software”). To use the Software, you may be required to provide us with your first name, last name, title, name of the organization, and other contact information, create a password and register with us. To the extent you are using the Software on behalf of an organization, you may need to also provide us with information in order to confirm or permit us to confirm, any relationship between you and such organization. We may also request additional information from you from time to time. You represent and warrant to us that you will provide us with accurate, current, and complete registration information.

2. 1. Subscription Fee. Certain features of the Software are limited to paying users. You, or a third party for your benefit, must purchase an engagement plan and pay the applicable subscription fees (“Subscription Fee”) to access the full breadth of the Software.

Any amounts due to us are exclusive of all sales, use, excise, service, value-added, or other taxes, duties, and charges of any kind (whether foreign, federal, state, local, or other). You shall be solely responsible for all such taxes, duties, and charges (except for taxes imposed on Spiky’s U.S. income), which may be included on the invoice we send you related to the owed Fees. You agree to gross up any payments due to us for any tax-related withholding or deduction required by applicable laws, such that you pay us the net amount owed. You will indemnify, defend, and hold Spiky harmless from any such taxes, fines, or interest for which you are responsible under this Agreement or applicable law.
2. 2. Evaluation Period.
