Technical support for RegulatorConnect, please submit a support ticket through the Help tab on the Portal.
2. License. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, ComplianceEase hereby grants to You a limited, nontransferable, nonexclusive, non-sublicensable, royalty-free license ("License") to access and use the Portal as set forth herein, and to access and use the documents and materials available in the Portal ("RC Materials") in connection with Your use of the Portal. No other license or right in or to the Portal or the RC Materials is granted nor shall be implied by this Agreement.
3. Data. Once the Data has been properly formatted and validated, Covered Entities desiring to transmit Data to Regulators through the Portal will upload Data files to the Portal in accordance with the instructions provided by ComplianceEase and will identify the Regulator(s) authorized to download such Data. Data uploaded to the Portal shall be retained by the Portal only until the earlier to occur of (i) download of such Data from the Portal by the Regulator, or (ii) fourteen (14) days from the date of upload; provided, that ComplianceEase may retain the Data in the Portal for longer than fourteen days upon request ("Extension Request") of the Regulator. Once the Data has been downloaded by the Regulator, or at either the end of the fourteenth day following the date of upload if not sooner downloaded by the Regulator or the end of the time period specified in an Extension Request, such Data will be irretrievably deleted from the Portal and destroyed. Data uploaded to the Portal will be stored on AWS or other reputable cloud-based hosting service until deletion in accordance with the foregoing.
4. Data Protection.
(a) You and your Representatives (as defined below) shall, (i) treat Restricted Information (as defined below) as strictly confidential and not disclose such information to any third party or Representative, except those Representatives who are required to have such information in order to perform their responsibilities in the ordinary course of business relative to the purposes of this Agreement, (ii) use all commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard such information from unauthorized use or disclosure, and (iii) not use or permit use of such information other than in the course of carrying out the contemplated purposes of this Agreement.
(b) "Representatives" means employees, service providers, affiliates and agents and their respective employees. "Restricted Information" means all Data, the RC Materials, and any other information or data, whether in written, oral, or electronic form, that is confidential and/or proprietary to You or to ComplianceEase (or a third party from which ComplianceEase or You have obtained such information). Restricted Information includes but is not limited to (a) copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, service marks, trade names and dress, patents, and applications relating to the same, domain names, proprietary software, code, files, materials, data, methodologies, methods, know-how, concepts, ideas, formulae, inventions, processes or procedures used in the provision of Services, including without limitation all related written, magnetic, or recorded information, documents, or materials, data, and graphics, and (b) all information relating to Your or ComplianceEase's business, finances, marketing, products, services, customers or other third parties, or manner of operation. Restricted Information also includes, if and to the extent provided to ComplianceEase, any Consumer Information. "Consumer Information" means nonpublic personal information (as defined in the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 and the regulations promulgated thereunder, as the same may be amended from time to time (the "GLBA")) about consumers provided by You to ComplianceEase.
(c) Without limitation of the foregoing provisions, with respect to any ComplianceEase Restricted Information, You agree not to (i) copy, duplicate or otherwise reproduce any such Restricted Information, except for archival purposes or as necessary to allow Your Representatives to use such Restricted Information pursuant to this Agreement; (ii) modify or create derivative works or improvements based upon such Restricted Information or any portion thereof, or seek to obtain intellectual property protection in such Restricted Information or any portion thereof, (iii) remove or alter any product identification, trademark, copyright, confidentiality, proprietary or other notice affixed to or embodied within any such Restricted Information; or (iv) use any such Restricted Information for any purpose or in any manner inconsistent with this Agreement.
(d) Notwithstanding anything else set forth in this Agreement, you may not disclose any ComplianceEase Restricted Information to any vendor of automated compliance products, services or a direct competitor of ComplianceEase.
(e) ComplianceEase does not require, and does not anticipate that any Regulator will require, the transmission of Consumer Information through the Portal, and You are advised not to upload any such information to the Portal. In the event that a Regulator does require the provision of Consumer Information, however, ComplianceEase acknowledges that it has implemented and will maintain appropriate measures meeting the applicable requirements under the GLBA designed to (i) ensure the security and confidentiality of Consumer Information; (ii) protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of Consumer Information; and (iii) protect against unauthorized access to or use of Consumer Information that could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any consumer.
(f) The confidentiality obligations set forth above shall not apply to information that the recipient can demonstrate with competent proof (i) was already in the recipient's possession without restrictions on disclosure prior to the time of disclosure under this Agreement, (ii) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a breach of this Agreement, (iii) is independently developed by the recipient without any use of or reference to the Restricted Information, or (iv) becomes available to the recipient on a non-confidential basis from a source that, to the best of the recipient's knowledge after due inquiry, is not prohibited from disclosing such information.
(g) The recipient may make disclosures of Restricted Information to the extent required by applicable law, rule, regulation, order or written demand of a Regulator (a "Disclosure Requirement"); provided, that the recipient shall (i) if legally permissible, notify the discloser as promptly as practicable of the Disclosure Requirement, (ii) at the discloser's expense, use commercially reasonable efforts to limit disclosure and obtain confidential treatment or a protective order, or reasonably cooperate with the discloser in obtaining such remedy, and (iii) if necessary, provide consent so that the discloser may participate in any proceeding related to the Disclosure Requirement. The parties agree that in the event of an impending or existing violation of any provision of this Section 4, the discloser shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief prohibiting such violation, without the necessity of posting bond, in addition to any other rights and remedies available to it. In the event the ComplianceEase and You are parties to a mutual confidentiality or nondisclosure agreement (a "NDA"), then except as expressly provided herein, nothing in this Section 4 shall supersede or limit the terms of such NDA, but nor shall the NDA limit any terms hereof that are more protective of Restricted Information than those set forth in the NDA.

IN NO EVENT WILL COMPLIANCEEASE'S LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIM RELATED TO THE PORTAL OR RC MATERIALS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EXCEED THE CHARGES, IF ANY, PAID BY YOU TO COMPLIANCEEASE HEREUNDER. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THIS SECTION 5 IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT IN ITS ABSENCE, THE ECONOMIC TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT WOULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT.

(d) In the event that any provision of this Agreement or the application of any provision of this Agreement is held by a tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and this Agreement shall be interpreted as to conform such invalid provision(s) to the requirements of law. This Agreement and all actions for the breach thereof will be governed, construed, and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without regard to or application of choice of law rules or principles. Sections 4, 5 and 6 of this Agreement shall survive any termination hereof.
