Terms of Use for Firstmark Services LLC Websites

Access to and use of Firstmark Services LLC (“Firstmark Services”) websites are subject to these terms and conditions and all applicable laws. Firstmark Services may revise these terms and conditions from time to time and without notice.  “Licensor” and “us” refer to Firstmark Services and its affiliates.  “Licensee” and “you” refer to you, any user of the Services, including, with respect to a business entity, those individuals acting or apparently acting on behalf or with the authorization of such entity.

Access to Services
In connection with Licensee’s access to and use of Firstmark Services’ web-based services (the “Services”) Licensee will receive a nonexclusive, nonassignable, right and license to use the Services via the Internet.

Except as provided herein, Licensee shall not sell, distribute, or transfer, in any manner, any copy of the Services in whatever form to any other party without the express written authorization of Licensor.  

Licensee is prohibited from making any copies of the Services or using the Services in any manner other than as described herein.

In consideration for the licenses granted hereunder, Licensee agrees to these Terms and Conditions.

Licensee recognizes that the Services are proprietary and confidential property of Licensor or are licensed to Licensee with full authority to sublicense.  Accordingly, Licensee shall not, without the prior express written consent of Licensor, disclose or reveal to any third party or utilize for its own benefit other than as permitted hereunder, any materials or information provided by Licensor, provided that such information was not previously and lawfully known to Licensee or to the general public.  Licensee further agrees to take all reasonable precautions to preserve the confidentiality of the Services and shall assume responsibility that its employees, agents, sublicensees, and assignees will similarly preserve this information against third parties.  The provisions of this clause shall survive termination of Licensee’s use of the Services.

Licensee shall take no steps in attempting to reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Services.

Licensee shall not hold the Services out as being proprietary to or otherwise the property of Licensee.  This restriction includes a prohibition on Licensee’s use of any copyright legend on the Services and the requirement that any such use shall contain Licensor’s copyright legend.

Licensor represents and warrants that it has no actual knowledge that the Services infringe any valid intellectual property rights of any third party.  Licensor shall control the defense of any claim alleging that Licensee’s use of the Services under this Agreement infringes any such intellectual property right.  Licensee shall give notice of any such claims immediately upon Licensee’s knowledge of the same, and fully cooperate with Licensor in the investigation, preparation, defense and settlement of each such claim.  Licensor’s sole obligation in the case of such infringement will be to replace the Services with non-infringing services of a like nature if possible, and if such replacement is not possible, Licensor shall terminate the Services altogether.
