PestRoutes Terms of Service

Revision: April 7, 2020

PestRoutes OpCo, LLC (collectively, “PestRoutes” or “we,” “us” or “our”) are pleased to provide you with access to our pest control software solution. Your use of our services, including access to our PestRoutes platform, software and mobile applications (the “Services”) is subject to the terms and conditions below (these “TOS”). Words appearing as defined terms are either defined in their first use or in the Definitions section at the end of this document.

If you will be using the Services on behalf of an organization, you agree to these TOS on behalf of that organization, and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to do so. In such case, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization (the “Company”).

Please read these TOS carefully before accessing or using PestRoutes’ Services. By accessing or using any part of the Services, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of these TOS and our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to all of the terms and conditions in these TOS, you may not access or use the Services.

We reserve the right without advance notice to modify these TOS. If you do not agree to abide by these and subsequent versions of our TOS, please do not use, access, or continue to use/access the Services. In the event you do not agree to a modified version of a TOS, you shall have the option to terminate the Service Agreement (see Definitions) subject to a PestRoutes cancellation fee.

Our Services are not directed to children younger than 13 years old. If you are under 13 years old, please do not register to use our Services. Any person who registers as a user or provides their personal information to our Services represents that they are 13 years of age or older. PLEASE CAREFULLY REVIEW THESE TOS AS THEY INCLUDE CERTAIN LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS THAT MAY APPLY TO YOU. THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, OBLIGATIONS AND REMEDIES.

Services

Services in General

Subject to these TOS and our Privacy Policy, we grant you a right to access and use the Services during your Subscription Term. We may change the Services over time as we refine and add more features and may need to stop, suspend, or modify the Services at any time without prior notice to you.

Use of our Services requires a PestRoutes Account. You agree to provide us with complete and accurate information when you register for such Account. Companies will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your Company’s Account and username(s). Company is responsible for keeping their passwords secure.

Integrated Services

PestRoutes’ platform may contain services that are developed, provided and maintained by a third-party provider (“Integrated Services”). These Integrated Services comprise certain of the PestRoutes Service(s) and are provided to you as an option that may be enabled and used as part of the Service(s). Integrated Services are governed by these TOS (in addition to any third-party terms of service) or Additional Terms (see Definitions).

If you elect to use any of the Integrated Services (such as programmable text/SMS, email, programmable voice, mail, route optimization, et al) provided through PestRoutes, you understand and agree that (a) Company is solely responsible for its operation of these services in compliance with all applicable laws in all jurisdictions governing use of the Service(s) by the Company, its Affiliates, and End Users, including but not limited to spam laws, telephone recording, and wiretapping laws, and (b) Company will defend, hold harmless and indemnify PestRoutes from and against any third-party claim arising from any of the foregoing. PestRoutes may disable the communication tools provided to the Company if the Company’s subscription to the Service(s), account or rights to access and/or use the Service(s) are otherwise suspended or terminated. When enabling communication services, the Company is consenting, on behalf of the Company and its End Users, to the processing of Company Data (as generated by or necessary for the provision or operation of the phone service) by the third-party service provider PestRoutes utilizes to provide the communication services. The Company agrees that it will obtain consent from each End User to receive communications of the nature provided via the Communications Services, to the extent required by law, and by using the Communication Services the Company represents and warrants to PestRoutes that it has obtained such consent.

Access to the Services

The Company is responsible for procuring and maintaining the network connections that connect the Company to the Services. Your access to and use of the Services may require you to use or maintain specific browser software, security certifications and other procedures that support protocols used by the Services.

You may not be able to access or use the Services (a) during planned downtime for upgrades and maintenance to the Services (of which we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you in advance (“Planned Downtime”) through the PestRoutes Services “Admin Console”), or (b) during any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as, but not limited to, acts of God, acts of government, acts of terror or civil unrest, technical failures beyond our reasonable control (including, without limitation, inability to access the internet), or acts undertaken by third parties, including without limitation, distributed denial of service attacks.

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule Planned Downtime for weekends (Pacific Time zone) and other off-peak hours.

Modifications

Modifications to the Services

PestRoutes shall have the right to change, upgrade, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Services as we deem necessary. If PestRoutes makes a change to the Services it deems material (as determined in PestRoutes’ sole discretion), PestRoutes will inform the Company via the Admin Console or by emailing a notice to the “Notification Email Address” (provided that the Company has subscribed with PestRoutes to be informed about such change) at least fourteen (14) days before the changes are to take effect. If such a material change is considered adverse by the Company, the Company must notify PestRoutes by “Written Notice” (which, to be effective, must be received by PestRoutes at least seven (7) days in advance of the effective date of the change) of the Company’s request to terminate the Service Agreement based upon Company’s objection to the change. Such cancellation shall be effective prior to or on the date of the change and is subject to cancellation fees defined in the Company’s then-current Service Agreement.

Modifications to these TOS and Additional Terms

PestRoutes may make new applications, features or functionality for the Services available from time to time, the use of which may be contingent upon the Company’s agreement to additional terms. The Company may also be presented with additional policies or guidelines at the time the Company registers or accesses any other PestRoutes Services. Such terms, policies, and guidelines are collectively referred to herein as the “Additional Terms,” and include without limitation these TOS and Privacy Policy. Except where the context requires otherwise, any reference to the Additional Terms in whole or in part shall refer to the then-current versions of the same. The Company shall use the Services in accordance with these TOS and the Additional Terms.

PestRoutes continuously updates its Services, which may result in the need to change the legal terms under which the Services are offered. PestRoutes may make modifications to these TOS or any of the Additional Terms on one or more occasions by posting the new Service Agreement or policy at the location of the previously applicable Service Agreement or policy. If PestRoutes makes a material change (as determined solely by PestRoutes in its reasonable discretion) to these TOS or the Additional Terms, PestRoutes will inform you by either sending an email to the Notification Email Address or alerting you via the Admin Console at least fourteen (14) days before the changes are to take effect. If the material change will have a material adverse impact on the Company and the Company does not agree to the change, you must notify PestRoutes by Written Notice (which, to be effective, must be received by PestRoutes at least seven (7) days in advance of the effective date of the change) of your request to terminate the Service Agreement based upon your objection to the change. Such cancellation shall be effective prior to or on the date of the change and is subject to cancellation fees defined in the Company’s then-current Service Agreement. By continuing to access or use the Services once the changes are effective and in the absence of providing PestRoutes with the notice of objection and termination as provided for in this Section, the Company acknowledges and agrees that it is bound by the updated TOS. Any dispute arising prior to a change in terms will be governed by the TOS in place when the dispute arose.

Customer Obligations

Customer Administration of the Services

You may specify one or more Administrators through the Admin Console who will have the rights to access Admin Accounts. The Company is responsible for: (a) maintaining the confidentiality of the password and Admin Accounts; (b) designating those individuals who are authorized to access the Admin Accounts; and (c) ensuring that all activities that occur in connection with the Admin Accounts comply with the TOS and the Additional Terms, as applicable. The Company agrees that PestRoutes’ responsibilities do not extend to the internal management or administration of the Services for the Company and that PestRoutes is merely a data-processor.

End User Consent

The Company’s Administrators may have the ability to access, monitor, use, or disclose data available to End Users. The Company will obtain and maintain all consents required by law, if any, from End Users to allow: (a) the Company’s access, monitoring, use and disclosure of this data and PestRoutes providing the Company with the ability to do so and (b) PestRoutes to provide and monitor the usage of the Services, which the Company acknowledges and agrees shall not be deemed a breach of PestRoutes’ obligations with respect to the Company Data under these TOS.

Unauthorized Use

The Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized use of the Services and to terminate any unauthorized use. The Company will promptly notify PestRoutes of any unauthorized use of, or access to, the Services of which it becomes aware.

Restrictions on Use

Unless PestRoutes specifically agrees in writing, Company will not, and will use commercially reasonable efforts to make sure a third party does not: (a) sell, resell, lease, or the functional equivalent thereof, the Services to a third party (unless expressly authorized in these TOS); (b) attempt to reverse engineer the Services or any component; (c) attempt to create a substitute or similar service through use of, or access to, the Services; (d) use the Services for “High Risk Activities”; or (e) use the Services to store or transfer any Company Data that is controlled for export under “Export Control Laws”. Company is solely responsible for any applicable compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as may be amended from time to time, and any regulations issued thereunder.

Third Party Requests

The Company is responsible for responding to “Third-Party Requests” as documented in the “Definitions” section of these TOS. PestRoutes will, to the extent allowed by law and by the terms of the Third-Party Request and at the Company’s expense: (a) promptly notify the Company of its receipt of a Third-Party Request; (b) comply with the Company’s reasonable requests regarding its efforts to oppose a Third-Party Request; and (c) provide the Company with the information or tools required for the Company to respond to the Third-Party Request. The Company will first seek to obtain the information required to respond to the Third-Party Request on its own and will subsequently contact PestRoutes only if it cannot reasonably obtain such information.

End Users

The Company agrees that End Users shall comply with these TOS, and the Additional Terms, and further acknowledges and agrees that the Company shall be liable for any End User noncompliance.

End User Liability and Access

The Company shall be liable to PestRoutes for (a) the Company’s End Users’ compliance with the TOS, Additional Terms, and any applicable terms of the Service Agreement; and (b) any use of the Services through the Company’s account, whether such use is authorized or unauthorized. The Company is solely responsible for and shall take reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized access to the Services. The Company shall notify PestRoutes immediately of any known or suspected unauthorized use of the Services or breach of its security and shall use best efforts to stop said breach.

Payment

Payment Terms

All payments due are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated on the Service Agreement or invoice.

Credit Card Orders

PestRoutes will bill the credit card provided via the Service Agreement for all applicable Fees when due, including initial fees due upon signing the Service Agreement. If credit card authorizations or charge attempts are declined, PestRoutes will notify the Company of the delinquent balance and if the Company fails to promptly clear such charges, PestRoutes may disable or cancel the Services in its sole discretion anytime especially as noted in the Delinquent Payments section below.

Invoice Orders

Fees for Services where PestRoutes issues an invoice to be paid by check are due upon the Company’s receipt of the invoice and are considered delinquent thirty (30) days after the date of the applicable invoice.

Delinquent Payments

Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent per month (or the highest rate permitted by law if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. The Company will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by PestRoutes in collecting such delinquent amounts except where such delinquent amounts are due to PestRoutes’ billing inaccuracies. In addition to aforementioned enforcement of late fees, PestRoutes may also suspend Services at any time payment(s) reach a 45 days past due status based on the invoice date.  Reactivation of the Company’s PestRoutes Account will only occur after payment in full is received for any open delinquent and current balances.

Taxes

The Company is responsible for any “Taxes” and Company will pay PestRoutes for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If PestRoutes is obligated to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to the Company unless the Company provides PestRoutes with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. If the Company is required by law to withhold any Taxes from its payments to PestRoutes, the Company must provide PestRoutes with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such withholdings/exemptions.

Technical Support

By the Company

The Company will at its own expense respond to questions and complaints from End Users or third parties relating to the Company’s or End Users’ use of the Services. The Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve support issues before escalating them to PestRoutes.

By PestRoutes

If the Company cannot resolve a support issue consistent with the above, then the Company may escalate the issue to PestRoutes’ technical support team.

Confidential Information; Data Security

Revising Rates

PestRoutes may revise its rates for any upcoming Renewal Term by providing notice to Company at least thirty (30) days prior to the start of any upcoming Renewal Term, unless otherwise stated in the Company’s Service Agreement.

Suspension, Termination & Expiration 

Suspension

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there is an Emergency Security Issue, then PestRoutes may automatically Suspend the offending use to the extent PestRoutes in its sole judgment determines as required to prevent, mitigate, or terminate the Emergency Security Issue.

If the Company does not meet the criteria for usage or account provisioning as determined by PestRoutes in its reasonable sole discretion or upon PestRoutes’ election for any or no reason, PestRoutes shall have no obligation to provide Company with the Services.

Company agrees that PestRoutes shall not be liable for any damages arising from such suspension.

Termination

Except as expressly provided in these TOS, you may only terminate an Initial or Renewal Term pursuant to the Services Agreement.

PestRoutes may terminate your Service Agreement and Suspend the Services (a) where permitted by another provision in this Agreement; (b) if the Company or your End Users breach any provision in this Agreement and such breach is not cured within thirty (30) days of notice, if curable; (c) if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Company’s continued use of the Services could damage the platform, software, ability to offer Services, reputation or brand; (d) if the Company enters into bankruptcy proceedings (whether voluntarily or involuntarily) or receivership and such proceeding or receivership is not concluded or stayed within sixty (60) days, or if the Company makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; or (e) if to the extent PestRoutes, in its sole discretion, determines necessary to prevent, mitigate, or terminate an Emergency Security Issue.

PestRoutes may suspend Services if delinquent payments owed by the Company become 45 days overdue from the invoice date.  It is the Company’s sole responsibility to ensure the credit card on file in PestRoutes is accurate and updated so that payments do not reach an aged status.  Reactivation of the Company’s PestRoutes Account and all related PestRoutes Services will only occur after payment in full has been received by PestRoutes.

Effects of Expiration or Termination

After expiration or termination the Company is responsible for maintaining, protecting, and making backups of the Company Data. To the extent permitted by applicable law, PestRoutes will not be liable for any failure to store nor for loss/corruption of Company Data. The Company is encouraged to frequently backup and archive Company Data. PestRoutes shall provide the Company access to and the ability to export certain Company Data following the expiration or termination of an account or of the Services if requested by the Company by notice to PestRoutes within thirty (30) days of the expiration or termination.  It is PestRoutes’ standard practice to delete Company Data by removing pointers to it on PestRoutes’ active servers and overwriting it over time. The Company acknowledges and agrees that PestRoutes shall not be liable for the Company Data if the Company does not request such within the aforementioned timeframe. The termination of the Services may result in the automatic cancellation of all associated accounts (e.g., End User Accounts, Admin Accounts, etc.). All provisions of these TOS which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability. Company agrees that PestRoutes shall not be liable for any damages arising from such expiration or termination.
