DEALER TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated: July 1, 2019
Welcome to AskOtto!
BY ACCESSING OR USING OUR SERVICE IN ANY WAY, YOU AGREE TO AND ARE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, AND IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT ANY OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND/OR YOU DO NOT MEET OR COMPLY WITH THEIR PROVISIONS, YOU MAY NOT USE OUR WEBSITE OR SERVICE.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICE IS SUBJECT TO AN ARBITRATION PROVISION IN SECTION 7 OF THIS AGREEMENT, REQUIRING ALL CLAIMS TO BE RESOLVED BY WAY OF BINDING ARBITRATION. PLEASE CAREFULLY REVIEW SECTION 7 OF THIS AGREEMENT FOR MORE INFORMATION.
General. The Service is an AI-powered vehicle listing and information service that brings together potential buyers and sellers. inSearchX does not hold title to any vehicle and is not a party to any transaction between vehicle buyers and sellers that originates on or through the Service. Any vehicle recommendations made to prospective buyers through the Service are recommendations only and we have no liability to any seller or to any buyer if a recommended vehicle is purchased and the buyer is not ultimately not happy with the purchase for any reason. Any information you supply about a particular vehicle is supplied by you only and not by inSearchX. All price and other terms relating to the sale of a vehicle remain subject to direct negotiation between you and the prospective buyer. All materials, content and other information that appears on or through the Service is for general informational purposes only. While we aim to provide a Service that is useful, be mindful that the information provided through the Service may, from time to time, contain errors or omissions. The Service includes materials and information collected from and provided by other third parties and other users of the Service that we have not evaluated or reviewed. We make no representations, warranties or guarantees regarding the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or reliability of any of the materials or information made available through the Service, and you should not rely on it without independent verification. Though we hope and encourage all persons who use our Service to act honorably and treat each other fairly, we cannot verify the information that sellers or buyers supply or guarantee any vehicles offered through the Service. Nor can we assure any seller of a vehicle that any payment received from a buyer is legitimate. When using the Service, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling or buying a vehicle through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper.
Fees. There is no cost to register and create an account to use the Service. However, in order to access or use certain premium features of the Service for yourself or on behalf of your employer, inSearchX requires that you or your employer have on file a valid credit card that has not exceeded the monthly spend limit, if any, set on such card at the time of registration of your (or your employer’s) account to cover the applicable fees associated with using such premium features of the Service. All fees associated with using the premium features of the Service are set forth in our Schedule of Fees, located at http://www.askotto.com/dealer/fees (the “Schedule of Fees”), which may be updated from time to time in our discretion. Price changes for premium features of the Service will take effect upon our posting of such changes. You accept such new prices by continuing to use the Service after the price change is posted to the Service. If you do not agree with the price changes, your only remedy is to stop using the Service. By utilizing any of the premium features of the Service, you agree that we may charge the applicable credit card on file for your account. You must use care when utilizing the premium features of the Service and inputting information regarding any vehicle(s) you intend to offer for sale or when responding to user requests for trade offers. Fees for use of the premium features of the Service are not refundable, even if you inadvertently provide erroneous information or otherwise fail to enter into a purchase or sale transaction with another user.
Certified Vehicles. Dealers may provide listings for vehicles that have been “certified” as meeting certain standards established by manufacturers and/or dealers in connection with their pre-owned vehicle programs. The decision to certify any particular vehicle is made by the certifying manufacturer or dealer, as applicable, and the vehicle information made available about a certified vehicle listing is provided by the listing dealer. Neither inSearchX nor the manufacturer is responsible for the accuracy of any information contained in a certified vehicle listing. Any dealer that lists a vehicle as being “certified” is responsible for ensuring such vehicle has satisfied all relevant criteria to earn such certification. Should you elect to list or otherwise provide information to a prospective buyer about a “certified” vehicle, you represent to inSearchX that you are familiar with the terms of the applicable certification program and such vehicle satisfies the criteria of such certification program before marketing or selling such vehicle as being “certified”.
Grant of Limited License. On the condition you (and/or your employer, if applicable) comply with all obligations under this Agreement (including all payment obligations), and subject to additional terms of any third-party licenses applicable to third-party software included in our Service, we hereby grant to you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to access and use our Service during the term of this Agreement. We reserve all rights not otherwise expressly granted by this Agreement. If you or your employer do not comply with this Agreement, we reserve the right to revoke any license granted in this Agreement and limit your access to our Service. Any use of our Service that exceeds the rights expressly granted in this Agreement is strictly prohibited and constitutes a violation of this Agreement, which may result in the suspension or termination of your access to our Service.
Modification. We may discontinue or alter any aspect of our Service, restrict the time our Service is available, and restrict the amount of use permitted at our sole discretion and without prior notice or liability to you. We may also install bug fixes, updates, patches, and other upgrades to our Service without prior notice or liability to you. Your only remedy is to discontinue using our Service if you do not want a modification we make to our Service.
Removal of Access. Your access to our Service is provided on a temporary basis with no guarantee of future availability.

You further agree that such measures may be taken in our sole discretion and without liability to you or any third party.
Defects and Availability.

Our Service may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including, without limitation: (1) equipment malfunctions; (2) periodic maintenance procedures or repairs which we may undertake from time-to-time; or (3) causes beyond our reasonable control or which we could not reasonably foresee. You understand that our Service is provided over the Internet and hosted by a third party provider, so the quality and availability of our Service may be affected by factors outside of our control.

We will not be liable to you or any third party for damages or losses related to our Service being unavailable.

You understand that your Mobile Provider may charge you fees for your use of its network connection services while accessing or using our Service, for data downloading, e-mail, roaming, and other Mobile Provider or third party charges. YOU ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL MOBILE PROVIDER FEES INCURRED WHILE USING THE SERVICE. As applicable to your device, you agree to be bound by the then-current Apple Media Service Terms and Conditions (located at: https://www.apple.com/ca/legal/internet-services/itunes/ca/terms.html), or Google Play Terms of Service (located at: https://play.google.com/about/play-terms.html). You acknowledge and agree that neither Apple, nor Google have any obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to our Service, and that in the event of a conflict between their terms and this Agreement, their terms will prevail.
CONTENT ON OUR SERVICE
Third Party Content. Our Service may include or provide access to information, software, photos, videos, text, graphics, music, sounds, and other material or information provided by us or third parties (collectively, the “Third Party Content”) that are protected by copyrights, trademark, or other intellectual property laws. You understand and agree that these rights in any Third Party Content are valid and protected in all forms, media, and technologies existing now or developed in the future. You may not obscure or remove any proprietary rights notices contained in or on the Third Party Content.

User Content Submissions. You may upload, download, archive, and export information on your vehicle inventory and other services through our Service either directly through dynamic web-based forms, APIs or indirectly through individual or bulk upload of certain documents, pictures, videos, text and other graphics (collectively, “User Content”). By registering to use the Service, you agree to provide us with electronic access to your online vehicle inventory in order for us to make recommendations to other users of the Service who may be interested in purchasing a vehicle or other services from you.
Trade Submissions. Other users of the Service may request to receive trade offers from dealers who have listed a vehicle for sale or who are otherwise using the Service. In order for you to respond to a user’s trade offer request, you or your employer must have a valid credit card on file with inSearchX and that credit card will be charged the then current transaction fee as set forth in our Schedule of Fees. Photos submitted by a user who is requesting trade offers must correspond to the actual vehicle being offering for trade and all information such user provides regarding such vehicle must be truthful and accurate. However, inSearchX is not responsible for any inaccurate or misleading information provided by any user of the Service. IF YOU ELECT TO MAKE OR OTHERWISE ACCEPT ANY TRADE OFFER ON A VEHICLE, YOU AGREE NOT TO SUE INSEARCHX FOR, AND AGREE TO RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS INSEARCHX FROM AND AGAINST, ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF ANY TRADE OR PURCHASE TRANSACTION THAT YOU ENTER INTO WITH ANOTHER USER OF THE SERVICE OR OTHERWISE. IN THE EVENT THAT ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES ARISE OUT OF SUCH A TRANSACTION, YOU AGREE TO LOOK SOLELY TO THE OTHER PARTY TO SUCH TRANSACTION FOR YOUR REMEDY AND NOT TO INSEARCHX.
User Content Limited License. By submitting User Content to our Service either through yourself or through a third party, you grant us, or anyone authorized by us, an unrestricted, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, license to use, modify, perform, display, broadcast, reproduce, create derivative works from, transmit, sell or otherwise use, exploit or distribute, at no cost whatsoever, all such User Content (including, without limitation, all intellectual property rights embodied therein), in whole or in part, in any manner or medium (whether now known or hereafter developed), for any purpose. The foregoing license includes the right to exploit any proprietary rights in such User Content, including, but not limited to, rights under copyright, trademark, or patent laws that exist in any applicable jurisdiction. You will not receive any compensation of any kind for the use of any User Content you transmit or post via the Service. Among other uses of User Content, inSearchX uses User Content and other data to derive useful information (such as vehicle valuation information, vehicle recommendations, etc.) for display, sale and distribution to other users. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL EVALUATE AND BEAR ALL RISK RELATED TO THE USE OF, OR ANY ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH, ANY USER CONTENT THAT YOU PROVIDE THROUGH OUR SERVICE. THE RESULTS OF ANY ACTIONS YOU TAKE BASED ON USER CONTENT, THIRD PARTY CONTENT OR OTHER CONTENT YOU FIND ON OUR SERVICE ARE SOLELY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

We retain the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated these terms or any other term of this Agreement. We will not, in the ordinary course of business, review the content of private electronic messages that are not addressed to us. However, we may occasionally monitor such communications as we believe is appropriate to comply with applicable laws, respond to legal process or a law enforcement request, to enforce this Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of other users of the System, our advertisers, the public, us or our affiliates. Notwithstanding the foregoing and for the avoidance of doubt, inSearchX takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content or Third Party Content posted on or through the System by you or by any other user or third party.

If you are creating and registering an account on behalf of your employer, you represent that you are authorized to do so. Once inSearchX receives such information, you will be provided with an account and login information, including a username and password, to successfully complete the registration process.

However, please be advised that if you (or your employer) elects to delegate account access rights to one or more administrative users, you acknowledge and agree that such administrative users may have read-only rights or “modification” rights to your account, depending on the access privileges that are delegated by your employer. INSEARCHX SHALL NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT CLAIMS, DAMAGES, OR ACTIONS ARISING FROM, OR RELATED TO, ACCOUNT DELEGATION ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THROUGH YOUR EMPLOYER. WE PROVIDE NO GUARANTEES OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THE ACTIONS OF ANY ADMINISTRATIVE USER. YOU HEREBY RELEASE INSEARCHX FROM THE ACTIONS OF AN ADMINISTRATIVE USER AND ANY FAILURE ON THE PART OF SUCH USER TO PROTECT THE CONFIDENTIALITY, INTEGRITY, OR SECURITY OF YOUR USER CONTENT.
For Administrative Users Only. If you have been designated as an administrative user by your employer in connection with our Service, you may be granted elevated access rights and privileges in an effort to coordinate and manage other end-user accounts associated with your employer. Depending on the rights granted, you have the ability to read end-user account information, generate reports, or modify an end-user’s account on his or her behalf. You represent and warrant that you will use best efforts to provide only true, accurate, and complete information as it relates to any end-user’s account that you are responsible for and that you will serve as the primary liaison between such end-user and your employer.
Unauthorized Use and Information Changes. You must immediately notify us if your registration information changes or you learn of or have reason to suspect any unauthorized use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password. You also agree that you will provide truthful and accurate information during the account registration process. We may refuse to grant you a particular username for any reason, including, without limitation, if we have reason to believe that such username impersonates someone else, is protected by trademark or other proprietary rights, or is vulgar or otherwise offensive.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND GOVERNING LAW, JURISDICTION AND COSTS
Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed, interpreted, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without reference to its conflicts or choice of law principles. Any arbitration or court proceeding will take place in Boca Raton, Florida and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state or federal courts in Palm Beach County, Florida. You irrevocably submit and consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
Dispute Resolution. To the extent feasible, the parties desire to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of or access to our Service or inSearchX Materials (defined below), this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this Agreement, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitration (a “Dispute”) through discussions and negotiations between each other. The parties agree to attempt to resolve any Disputes by negotiation with the other party (by phone, electronic correspondence, or written correspondence). If we are not able to resolve any Dispute ourselves, you and inSearchX agree to resolve such Dispute through confidential binding arbitration as set forth below.
Binding Arbitration. If you and inSearchX are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, either you or inSearchX may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”) both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement you and inSearchX may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Waiver of Rights. You hereby agree that you understand the consequences of agreeing to binding arbitration under this Section, including giving up any constitutional rights to have the Dispute determined by a court of law or by a jury under applicable law. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE PROVIDER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER PROVIDER OR USER.
Ownership of Intellectual Property. Unless otherwise specifically noted in this Agreement, images, trademarks, service marks, logos and icons displayed on our Service, are the property of inSearchX and/or its licensors and may not be used without our prior written consent. Our Service, including our systems, databases, information, data, documents, materials, works, Third Party Content, and all intellectual property rights in and to the foregoing (collectively, the “inSearchX Materials”) shall at all times remain the exclusive property of inSearchX and its third-party licensors. You are not acquiring any rights in or to the inSearchX Materials other than a non-exclusive right to access and use our Service solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Our inSearchX Materials are our intellectual property and may not be reproduced, recreated, modified, accessed, or used in any manner or disseminated or distributed to any other party in violation of this Agreement. Any unauthorized use of any inSearchX Materials, whether owned by us or other parties, may violate copyright laws, trademark laws, privacy and publicity laws and communications regulations and statutes. Any third-party software included in our inSearchX Materials is licensed subject to the additional terms of the applicable third-party license. Trademarks owned by third parties are the property of those respective third parties.
Notice of Copyright Infringement. If you are an owner of intellectual property who believes your intellectual property has been improperly posted or distributed via the Service, please notify us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a notice by U.S. Mail to:
Attn: Legal Department/Copyright
170 NE 2nd St. #1331
Boca Raton FL 33429
Your notice to us must include the following information: (1) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyrighted work allegedly infringed; (2) a description of the copyrighted work or works that allegedly have been infringed; (3) a description of where on our web site the allegedly infringing material appears that will allow us to locate the material; (4) your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and, if available, email address; (5) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the allegedly infringing use has not been authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (6) a statement by you, under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyrighted work that has allegedly been infringed.
Term. This Agreement is effective upon your acceptance and will continue in full force until terminated by you or inSearchX. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by immediately discontinuing all access to our Service. Termination or cancellation of this Agreement will not affect any right or relief to which we may be entitled at law or in equity. We reserve the right to terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason without prior notice to you. Further, you agree that we will not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination or suspension of your access to our Service or any part thereof.
Independent Contractors. You understand and expressly agree that you and inSearchX are independent contractors and not agents or employees of the other party. Neither you nor inSearchX has any right, power, or authority to act or create any obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other party.
Consent to Do Business Electronically. You agree not to contest the authorization for, or validity or enforceability of, electronic records and electronic signatures, or the admissibility of copies thereof, under any applicable law relating to whether certain agreements, files, or electronic records are to be in writing or signed by you to be bound thereby.
Equitable Relief. You agree that breach of the provisions of this Agreement would cause irreparable harm and significant injury to us which would be both difficult to ascertain and which would not be compensable by damages alone. As such, you agree that we have the right to enforce the provisions of this Agreement by injunction (without necessity of posting bond), specific performance, or other equitable relief without prejudice to any other rights and remedies we may have for your breach of this Agreement.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and inSearchX with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, both oral and written. We may revise and update this Agreement from time to time, and will post the updated Agreement to our Service. UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED IN THE AMENDED VERSION OF THIS AGREEMENT, ANY CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL APPLY IMMEDIATELY UPON POSTING. Although we are not obligated to provide you with notice of any changes, any changes to this Agreement will not apply retroactively to events that occurred prior to such changes. Your continued use of our Service will constitute your agreement to any new provisions within this revised Agreement.
Waiver; Severability. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be deemed to be a waiver of our right to enforce them. If any term or provision of this Agreement will be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining terms and provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect, and such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable term or provision will be deemed not to be part of this Agreement.
Assignment. You may not assign, transfer, or sell (voluntarily or by operation of law) your rights or obligations under this Agreement without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment without our consent will be void and will constitute a breach of this Agreement. We may assign this Agreement or delegate or subcontract our obligations under this Agreement at any time.
Survival. The provisions of this Agreement that by their content are intended to survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement, including, without limitation, provisions governing ownership and use of intellectual property, representations, disclaimers, warranties, liability, indemnification, governing law, jurisdiction, venue, remedies, rights after termination, and interpretation of this Agreement, will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for their full statutory period.
