Reservation of Rights.
- Rights Reserved by Rover. Rover expressly reserves all rights in the Services, the Platform and all materials (other than Personal Information) provided by Rover hereunder and not specifically granted to Customer (“Rover Property”). All right, title and interest in the Rover Property, as well as any update, modification, adaptation, translation, customization or derivative work thereof, and all intellectual property rights therein will remain with Rover (or Rover’s third party suppliers, as applicable). The Rover Property is licensed on a subscription basis under these TOS and not “sold” to Customer.

Customer expressly reserves all rights in any data, information, records and files that Customer (or any User) loads, transmits to or enters into the Platform, including data that the Platform is configured to obtain from Customer’s servers or systems (including from the Application) or from third parties on Customer’s behalf (the “Customer Data”), subject to the license that Customer grants Rover in accordance with the provisions of these TOS, and provided that Customer does not acquire any intellectual property rights in the Services, the Platform or any elements of any of the foregoing.
Internet Security Disclaimer; Limitation, Suspension or Termination of Access.
- Internet Security Disclaimer. As between Rover and Customer, Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, and appropriateness of all Customer Data. Customer understands that the technical processing and transmission of Customer Data is fundamentally necessary to use of the Services. Therefore, Customer expressly consents to Rover’s storage of Customer Data, which will involve transmission over the Internet, and over various networks, only part of which may be owned and/or operated by Rover. Customer acknowledges and understands that Customer Data may be accessed by unauthorized persons when communicated across the Internet, network communications facilities, telephone or other electronic means. Rover is not responsible for any Customer Data which is delayed, lost, altered, intercepted or stored during the transmission of any data whatsoever across public networks not owned or operated by Rover, including, the Internet, third party websites, and Customer’s local network. Customer agrees that Rover is not in any way responsible for any interference with Customer’s use of or access to the Services or security breaches arising from or attributable to the Internet, and Customer waives any and all claims against Rover in connection therewith.
- Limitation, Suspension or Termination of Access. In addition to any other suspension or termination rights of Rover pursuant to these TOS, certain extraordinary circumstances may require Rover to suspend, terminate or limit (as appropriate and as determined in Rover’s sole discretion) Customer’s access to or use of the Platform or the Services, or any component thereof, without notice in order to: (i) prevent any misuse or abuse of the Offering; (ii) prevent any damage to, or degradation of the integrity of Rover’s systems or Rover Offering; (iii) comply with any law, regulation, court order, or other governmental request or order; or (iv) otherwise protect Rover from potential legal liability or harm to its reputation or business. Rover also reserves the right to approve, reject, cancel or remove any Customer Data or other content that is posted on, provided or uploaded to, or transmitted through the Platform or the Services at any time and for any reason in Rover’s sole discretion, and Rover will not be liable or responsible for exercising this right. Rover will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer of the reasons for such limitation, suspension or termination action as soon as reasonably practicable. In the event of a limitation or suspension, Rover will promptly restore Customer’s access to the Offering as soon as the event giving rise to the limitation or suspension has been resolved, as determined in Rover’s sole discretion. Nothing contained in these TOS will be construed so as to limit Rover’s ability to take action or invoke remedies, or act as a waiver of Rover’s rights in any way with respect to any of the foregoing activities. Rover will not be responsible for any loss or damages incurred by Customer as a result of any limitation, termination or suspension of access to or use of the Platform or the Services under this Section.

Confidential & Proprietary Information.
- Definitions. For purposes of this section, a Party receiving Confidential & Proprietary Information (as defined below) will be the “Recipient” and the Party disclosing such information will be the “Discloser”, and “Confidential & Proprietary Information” includes all information disclosed by Discloser to Recipient during the Term of these TOS and marked as “confidential” or “proprietary” or which a reasonable person would understand to be confidential or proprietary; provided that: (a) the terms and conditions of these TOS and all parts of the Offering, whether marked as “confidential” or “proprietary” or not, will be considered to be Rover Confidential & Proprietary Information; and (b) all Customer Data , whether marked as “confidential” or “proprietary” or not, will be considered Customer’s Confidential & Proprietary Information; and further provided that Discloser’s Confidential & Proprietary Information (other than Personal Information) does not include: (i) information already known or independently developed by Recipient outside the scope of this relationship by personnel not having access to any Discloser’s Confidential & Proprietary Information; (ii) information that is publicly available through no wrongful act of Recipient; or (iii) information received by Recipient from a third party who was free to disclose it without confidentiality obligations.
- Covenant. Recipient hereby agrees that during the Term and at all times thereafter it will not: (i) disclose such Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser to any person or entity, except to its own personnel, affiliates or contractors having a “need to know”, and to such other recipients as the Discloser may approve in writing; (ii) use Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser except to exercise its license rights or perform its obligations under these TOS; or (iii) alter or remove from any Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser any proprietary legend. Recipient will use at least the same degree of care in safeguarding the Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser as it uses in safeguarding its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event will less than due diligence and reasonable care be exercised. Each party will be deemed to have fulfilled its confidentiality obligations under this Section 10, if it affords the other party’s Confidential & Proprietary Information at least the same degree of care it takes in protecting its own confidential information from unauthorized disclosure (but in no event using less than a reasonable degree of care). Upon the earlier of: (A) Discloser’s written request; and (B) the termination or expiration of these TOS, regardless of whether a dispute may exist, Recipient will return or destroy (as instructed by Discloser) all Confidential & Proprietary Information of Discloser in its possession or control and cease all further use thereof. Rover may retain a copy of such Confidential & Proprietary Information for the sole purpose of and to the extent necessary for it to comply with applicable and legal, regulatory, or reasonable internal back-up or archival policies and requirements. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential & Proprietary Information to the extent that such disclosure is necessary for the Recipient to enforce its rights under these TOS or is required by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that the Recipient promptly notifies the Discloser in writing of such required disclosure and cooperates with the Discloser to seek an appropriate protective order.
- Injunctive Relief. Recipient acknowledges that violation of the provisions of this section would cause irreparable harm to Discloser not adequately compensable by monetary damages. In addition to other relief, it is agreed that injunctive relief will be available without necessity of posting bond to prevent any actual or threatened violation of such provisions.
- Analytics. Rover its subcontractors, agents and third party service providers shall be permitted to access, collect, analyze and use the Customer Data and other information relating to the Services and the Platform to improve and enhance the Services and the Platform and for other development, diagnostic and corrective purposes and disclose such data solely in aggregate or other de-identified form in connection with its business.
Customer Warranty; Disclaimer; Indemnity.

- Rover agrees to defend Customer against any claim, demand, suit, or proceeding made or brought against Customer by a third party alleging that the use of the Services as permitted hereunder infringes or misappropriates the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party under the laws of the United States, Canada or England and Wales (an “Infringement Claim”), and shall indemnify Customer for any damages and attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Customer as a result of, and for amounts paid by Customer under a court-approved settlement of, an Infringement Claim; provided that Customer (a) promptly gives Rover written notice of the Infringement Claim; (b) gives Rover sole control of the defense and settlement of the Infringement Claim (provided that Rover may not settle any Infringement Claim unless the settlement unconditionally releases Customer of all liability); and (c) provides to Rover all reasonable assistance, at Rover’ expense. In the event of an Infringement Claim, or if Rover reasonably believes the Services may infringe or misappropriate, Rover may in its discretion and at no cost to Customer (i) modify the Services so that they no longer infringe or misappropriate, (ii) obtain a license for Customer’s continued use of the Services in accordance with these TOS, or (iii) terminate the applicable Order Form for such Services upon written notice and refund to Customer any prepaid Fees covering the remainder of the term of such Order Forms after the effective date of termination. For greater clarity, this indemnity does not apply to Infringement Claims resulting from or arising out of Customer Data, third party content or third party webpages.
- Customer agrees to defend Rover and its affiliates against any claim, demand, suit, or proceeding made or brought against Rover or any Rover affiliate by a third party arising out of or in connection with Customer Data or any use of the Services in violation of these TOS, and shall indemnify Rover and its affiliates for any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Rover or any of its affiliates as a result of, and for amounts paid by Rover or any affiliate under a court-approved settlement of, such claim, demand, suit or proceeding; provided that Rover (a) promptly gives Customer written notice of the claim, demand, suit or proceeding; (b) gives Customer sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim, demand, suit or proceeding (provided that Customer may not settle any claim, demand, suit or proceeding unless the settlement unconditionally releases Rover and its affiliates of all liability); and (c) provides to Customer all reasonable assistance, at Customer’s expense.

Notices sent to either Party will be effective when delivered in person or by email, one day after being sent by overnight courier, or two days after being sent by first class mail postage prepaid to the official contact designated in the Order Form and immediately after being received by the other party’s server. Notices must be in writing and sent to the respective email or postal address set out in the Order Form. Rover may change its contact information by posting the new contact information on the Website or by giving notice thereof to Customer. Customer may change its contact information by giving notice to Rover and Customer is solely responsible for keeping its contact information on file with Rover current at all times during the Term.
- Generally. Either Party may, in addition to other relief, suspend or terminate these TOS if the other Party: (i) commits a material breach of these TOS, and either: (A) fails within 30 days after receipt of notice of such breach to correct such material breach or to commence corrective action reasonably acceptable to the aggrieved Party and proceed with due diligence to completion; or (B) such material breach is incapable of being cured; or (C) becomes insolvent, makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, a receiver is appointed, or a petition in bankruptcy is filed with respect to the Party and is not dismissed within 30 days.

- Assignment. Customer may not assign these TOS to any third party without Rover’s prior written consent, except that Customer may assign its rights (but not obligations) hereunder to an affiliate of Customer. Rover may assign these TOS, in whole or in part, without Customer’s consent to: (i) any affiliate of Rover; or (ii) any third party that purchases all or substantially all of Rover’s assets related to the provision of the Services. Any assignment in violation of this Section will be void. The terms of these TOS will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties’ successors and permitted assignees.
- Choice of Law. This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to conflicts of law principles.

- Construction. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties rights and remedies under these TOS are cumulative. The term “including” means “including without limitation.” The headings of sections of these TOS are for reference purposes only and have no substantive effect. The terms “consent” or “discretion”, when used in respect of Rover herein mean the right of Rover to withhold such consent or exercise such discretion (as applicable) arbitrarily and without any implied obligation to act reasonably or explain its decision to Customer. Unless otherwise indicated in the Order Form, all dollar amounts are in United States Dollars.
- Force Majeure. Neither Party will be liable for delays caused by events beyond its reasonable control, except non-payment of amounts due hereunder will not be excused by this provision.
- Severable. Any provision hereof found by a tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be illegal or unenforceable will be automatically conformed to the minimum requirements of law and all other provisions will remain in full force and effect.
