Effective date: September 14, 2020
Thank you for using Brainome Daimensions™ machine learning platform!
Brainome Daimensions™ is a cloud-based, software-as-a-service platform that analyzes user-inputted datasets (“User Data”) to develop and return certain information (“Models”) to the user, including, but not limited to, measurement results, recommendations, predictors, and computer programmable code that the user may run on their own computer to perform predictive analysis on additional like datasets (the “Service”). The Service also includes access to certain content featured or displayed through the Website, including, but not limited to, text, data, articles, images, photographs, graphics, software, applications, packages, designs, features, and other materials that are available on the Website or otherwise available through the Service and the look and feel and arrangement thereof (collectively, the “Content”). Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the Service, including the release of new tools, Content and resources, shall be subject to this Agreement.
These Terms of Service are entered into by and between Brainome and you and apply to your access to and use of our Service and Website. You may signify your acceptance and agreement to these Terms of Service, including the disclaimers of warranty of Section I and liability limitations of Section J, by checking the “I Accept” box. This Agreement is effective as of the date you check the “I Accept” box. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not check the “I Accept” box. Please read these Terms of Service carefully before accessing or using our Service or Website.

- any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service;
- the Service generally or the software or systems that make the Service available;

Our liability is limited whether or not we have been informed of the possibility of such damages, and even if a remedy set forth in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose. We will have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond our reasonable control.
The maximum aggregate liability of Brainome, and your exclusive remedy for any claims arising out of or related to the Agreement, will be limited to the greater of: (a) the amount you actually paid to Brainome for the services in the past three (3) months; or (b) one hundred dollars ($100.00). Multiple claims will not expand these limitations. This Section J will be given full effect even if any remedy specified in the Agreement is deemed to have failed its essential purpose.

A Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information also includes any documents that are labeled “confidential” (or something similar), or other information (either in writing or verbal) that is of a type that a reasonable person should understand it to be confidential. Confidential Information does not include information that (a) the Receiving Party already knew at the time it was disclosed to them; (b) was told to the Receiving Party by a third party who had the right to tell them such information; (c) is generally available to the public; or (d) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without using any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.

Further, the Receiving Party will treat the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care that the Receiving Party treats its own Confidential Information.
You will, at your sole expense, defend Brainome from and against any and all third-party claims, suits, actions or proceedings, and indemnify Brainome from any related damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, penalties, interest, disbursements and amounts that are awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction or included in a settlement approved, in advance and in writing), resulting from or arising in connection with Your Liabilities.
