License Grant, Restrictions, Use of Services
1.1 License. Subject to the terms and limitations set forth in this Agreement, the Company hereby grants Customer a limited, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access and use the Probo Services solely for website and software development testing and not for any production use whatsoever. Customer shall be responsible for all acts and omissions of persons who use the Probo Services (each, a “User”) and for ensuring their compliance with this Agreement. Customer shall immediately notify the Company of any loss or unauthorized access or use of a personal User ID or password.
1.2.1 No Service Bureau Use. Customer may use the Probo Services only for its internal organizational purposes and may not provide outsourcing, service bureau, application service provider or similar services to third parties.
1.2.2 Restricted Rights. The Probo Services and any related information are commercial computer software and commercial computer software documentation, and, as specified in FAR 12.212 or DFARS 227.7202, and their successors, as applicable, the U.S. federal government’s rights to use, reproduce or disclose such software, documentation and other information are restricted in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Use, duplication or disclosure by the U.S. federal government is subject to the restrictions as set forth in subparagraph (c)(1)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software clause at DFARS 252.227-7013 or subparagraphs (c)(1) and (2) of the Commercial Computer Software-Restricted Rights at 48 CFR 52.227-19, as applicable.

1.4 Intended Use. Customer acknowledges that the Probo Services are intended solely for website and software development testing and for no other purpose. Customer shall not submit any production data to the Probo Services or any confidential or sensitive information, such as personally identifiable health or financial information. The Company shall have no liability whatsoever for any injuries, losses or damages arising from the use of the Probo Services, or any components or modifications thereof, for any other purpose, including any use with production data or any use in aircraft, weapons or missile systems, systems used in providing medical care, or systems used in connection with the operation or maintenance of nuclear plants.
1.5 Access and Use. Customer agrees to follow any policies made available within Probo Services. You may not misuse Probo Services. For example, don’t interfere with Probo Services, try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide, or extensively or automatically copy any content from Probo Services (no scraping). You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing Probo Services to you for any reason, including for non-compliance with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
1.6 Messages. In connection with your use of the Probo Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications, for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in marketing e-mails. Please be aware that there may be a brief period before we are able to process your opt-out, but we will always respect your legal rights to opt out of receiving unwanted messages.
1.7 Modifying and Terminating Probo Services. We are constantly changing and improving the Probo Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a part or all of the Probo Services altogether. You can stop using the Probo Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. We may also stop providing the Probo Services to you, or add or create new limits to the Probo Services, at any time.
The Probo Services furnished under this Agreement are licensed, not sold, to Customer. The Company possesses all right, title and interest in and to the Probo Services and any copyrights, patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names, trade dress, trade secrets and any other proprietary rights that are associated with the Probo Services throughout the world, and Customer acknowledges that it receives no right, title or interest to the Probo Services except for the limited rights provided within this Agreement. The Company also retains title to any and all copies made of any embodiments or features of the Probo Services, and upon any termination of this Agreement, all such copies must be returned to the Company or destroyed, at the Company’s instruction. You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of Probo Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission, for example, if we make software available under an open source license.
Customer agrees not to contest the Company’s title and intellectual property rights in or to the Probo Services.
All discoveries, developments, techniques, advice, feedback, suggestions, improvements and similar information developed or provided as a result of Customer’s access to the Probo Services shall be the sole property of the Company. The Company shall be the sole owner of all patents, copyrights, and other rights arising therefrom or in connection therewith, and may freely use, sell and exploit the foregoing information without the consent of Customer or any obligation to render an accounting or share profits or royalties.
Content You Submit
Some of Probo Services allow you to submit content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
When you upload or otherwise submit content to Probo Services, you give the Company (and those we work with) a royalty-free, worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with Probo Services), communicate, publish, and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving the Probo Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using the Probo Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any data or content that you submit to Probo Services.
Intellectual Property Protection
As we ask others to respect our intellectual property rights, we respect the intellectual property rights of others, and require our users and customers to do so. If you are a copyright owner or its agent and believe that any content residing on or accessible through the Probo Services infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing our Copyright Agent (the “Designated Agent”) with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C § 512(c)(3) for further detail):
Identification of the work or material being infringed.
Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing, including its location, with sufficient detail so that we are capable of finding it and verifying its existence.
Contact information for the notifying party (the “Notifying Party”), including name, address, telephone number, and email address.
A statement that the Notifying Party has a good faith belief that the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or law.
A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided in the notice is accurate and that the Notifying Party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed.
Please also note that the information provided in a notice of copyright infringement may be forwarded to the user who posted the allegedly infringing content. After removing material in response to a valid DMCA notice, we will notify the user responsible for the allegedly infringing material that we have removed or disabled access to the material. We will terminate, under appropriate circumstances, users who are repeat copyright infringers, and we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate any user for actual or apparent copyright infringement.
If you believe you are the wrongful subject of a DMCA notification, you may file a counter-notification with us by providing the following information to the Designated Agent at the address below:
The specific URLs of material that we have removed or to which we have disabled access.
Your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original DMCA notification or an agent of such person.
The following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, we will forward it to Notifying Party who submitted the original DMCA notification. The original Notifying Party (or the copyright holder he or she represents) will then have ten (10) days to notify us that he or she has filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing material. If we do not receive any such notification within ten (10) days, we may restore the material to the Probo Services.
The contact information for our Designated Agent is:

If you believe that any of your intellectual property rights other than copyrights have been infringed, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to suspend or terminate any user who infringes the intellectual property rights of the Company or others, and/or to remove, delete, edit or disable access to such person’s content. You agree that we have no liability for any action taken under this section.]

8.2 Material Part of Agreement. Customer agrees that the disclaimer of warranties and limitations of liability in this Section 8.2 are a material inducement and consideration for the Company to enter into this Agreement and provide the Probo Services.

9.1 Governing Law. This Agreement and any claim, controversy or dispute arising under or related to this Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, USA, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.

If any provision of this Agreement is deemed unenforceable or invalid by law or by a court decision, the provision shall be changed and interpreted if possible to accomplish the intent of the provision within the constraints of the law.
