Last updated: December, 2017

Welcome to BIMtrace.  BIMtrace is a photogrammetric tool to visualize, measure, and document the correspondence between a building model and construction on-site. The website www.bimtrace.com (the “Site”), and the BIMtrace desktop and mobile applications (the “Applications”),  the BIMtrace software (the “Software”) and the various other related features, functions, software, applications, websites and networks (collectively, the “Services” and together with the Site, the Applications and the Software, collectively the “BIMtrace Services”) are provided and operated, and are being made available to your organization (the “Organization”) and you and the other users of any of the BIMtrace Services  (collectively, “Users”) by  Pericept, a division of ClearEdge3D Inc.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR THE PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY BIMTRACE SERVICES.

1. Eligibility

To access and use the Site, the Applications, the Software and the Services, you must be at least 18 years of age. BY SUBSCRIBING TO ANY SERVICES PLAN, CLICKING THE “I AGREE” BUTTON OR BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING ANY OF THE BIMTRACE SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT THAT:

In order to do that, Pericept may collect and process information from you when you use any of the BIMtrace Services. Pericept will collect certain personally identifiable information from you as set forth in more detail in our Privacy Policy. By accessing and using any of the BIMtrace Services, you agree that Pericept may collect, use and disclose, as set forth in the Privacy Policy, the information you provide during your access to or use of any of the BIMtrace Services, and in some cases information that is provided to any of the BIMtrace Services by other parties.

3. License Grant; Unauthorized Use

3.1. License Grant

Subject to your compliance with all the terms and conditions set out in these Terms, Pericept hereby grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, freely revocable license during the term of your Services Plan with Pericept to (a) to install and use the Applications on your computers and mobile and other devices and (b) to access and use the Site, the Software and the Services as contemplated herein, in each case solely for your own internal business purposes and only to the extent and in accordance with these Terms.

You should check for updates to any software that Pericept provides to you in connection with the Applications and the Software from time to time at www.bimtrace.com.  Now or in the future you may also be notified of available updates or such software may automatically download and install upgrades, updates, or other new features. You may be able to adjust these automatic downloads through your device’s settings.

3.2. Prevention of Unauthorized Use

Pericept reserves the right to exercise whatever lawful means it deems necessary to prevent unauthorized use of any of the BIMtrace Services, including, but not limited to, technological barriers, IP mapping, and directly contacting your Internet Service Provider (ISP) regarding such unauthorized use.

4. Service Plans; Support Services; Fees

Pericept offers various service plans that vary depending on the subscription term, the site(s) covered (the “Site Limitations”) and other factors as described in the “Service Plan”. The specific Service Plan shall be set forth in the applicable Quotation form (the “Quotation Form”).

The subscription term of all Service Plans will automatically renew for periods equal to the initial subscription term (and charged at the then-current prices at the time of renewal) unless the subscription is cancelled or a different Service Plan is selected or otherwise provided in the applicable Quotation Form. If the subscription is terminated, it will terminate at the end of the then-current month. There will not be any credits or refunds for amounts accrued or paid prior to such termination for monthly service plans. Amounts accrued or paid prior to such termination for annual service plans may be refunded on a prorated basis based on the duration of service remaining after the month in which the termination became effective, less an early termination fee equal to two months of service.

Pericept may now or in the future also provide additional services, including set-up and training (“Set-up and Training”) and technical support (collectively, the “Support Services”).  Any such Support Services shall be set forth in the applicable Quotation Form.

Set-up and Training are separate from the general technical support provided by Pericept and are subject to additional Fees.

Unless otherwise set forth on a Quotation Form, technical support shall be provided to Users via email and telephone between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm CST on each business day.  Pericept shall use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to any request for technical support by the next business day.

Pericept may change, modify, or eliminate any Service Plan or Support Services at any time, with or without notice. You agree that Pericept will bear no liability to you or any third party if Pericept does so.

All fees related to the Service Plan and any Support Services (the “Fees”) and such other terms as may be agreed to by Pericept and you shall also be set forth in the applicable Quotation Form. In the event of a conflict between the provisions of these Terms and the provisions of a Quotation Form, the provisions of the Quotation Form will control.

Pericept will invoice you for Fees for the Service Plan and any Support Services in advance and otherwise in accordance with the terms of the relevant Quotation Form. You shall fully pay all invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. All payments made will be in United States dollars. If you fail to make any payment when due, Pericept may, at its discretion, assess a late charge at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or at the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.

By selecting one of the Service Plans or any Support Services, you agree on behalf of yourself and your Organization to the terms and conditions associated with such Service Plan or Support Services, including the applicable fees, scope, the subscription term and site limitations of such Service Plan. In addition, to the extent that any sales or other similar taxes are payable by Pericept or any unaffiliated third party (e.g., a company that provides credit card processing services) (“Third Party Processors”) in connection with any Service Plan and/or any Support Services, you and your Organization agree to pay to Pericept or any such Third Party Processors the amount of such taxes in addition to any other amounts owing for such Service Plan and/or Support Services.

In making payments, you acknowledge that you are not relying on future availability of any Service Plans or Support Services beyond the current subscription term or current Support Services. If you change your Service Plan, Pericept will charge for the difference between your current Service Plan and your new Service Plan.

If you exceed any Site Limitations in violation of the terms of your Service Plan, then Pericept may bill you and you shall pay Pericept such amounts as determined by Pericept for any such excess sites.

The Fees may be paid by bank transfer, wire or check or such other method as permitted from time to time by Pericept. Payments or payment processing for the Fees may be handled by Pericept or unaffiliated third parties (e.g., companies that provide credit card processing services) (“Third Party Processors”).

Pericept reserves the right to increase any such Fees at any time upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice posted in advance on any of the BIMtrace Services.  Any such increase shall apply in connection with (a) the Service Plans, after the then current subscription term ends or (b) the Support Services, for any new or additional Support Services.

ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-CANCELLABLE AND NON-CREDITABLE UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS, THE APPLICABLE QUOTATION FORM OR REQUIRED BY LAW.

You shall be solely responsible and liable for all out of pocket expenses and any other costs (e.g., travel costs, including airfare and hotels) arising from or relating to the Software, the Services, any Support Services and/or this Agreement unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Statement of Work.

5. The Administrator

If you are the person designated as the BIMtrace administrator for your Organization (the “Administrator”), you shall be responsible for (a) authorizing or de-authorizing all Users of the BIMtrace Services, (b) setting the  permissions settings for Users, (c) defining the group of Users for the distribution of notes, (d) authorizing and connecting 3rd party cloud services (e.g., Autodesk Glue and Dropbox) and (e)  ensuring that the BIMtrace Services are used in accordance with the applicable Services Plan, including the Site Limitations.

The Administrator may edit any information that it or you provided through any of the BIMtrace Services.

6. Additional Policies

When using any of the BIMtrace Services, you will be subject to any additional posted policies, guidelines or rules applicable to the Site, the Applications, the Software and Services and features which may be posted from time to time (the “Policies”). All such Policies are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms.

7. Respecting Other People’s Rights

Pericept respects the rights of others and so should you. You therefore may not post or send Content that:

  • violates or infringes someone else’s rights of publicity, privacy, copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property right;
  • is unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, tortious, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, offensive, profane, contains or depicts nudity, contains or depicts sexual activity, or is otherwise inappropriate as determined by Pericept in its sole discretion;
  • is false, misleading, untruthful or inaccurate;
  • includes anyone’s identification documents or sensitive financial information
  • impersonates any person or entity, including any of Pericept’s employees or representatives; or
  • spams or solicits any Users.

8. Account Security

When you access and use any of the BIMtrace Services or any applications, products, services, or information from Pericept, you may be asked to provide a password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer and mobile devices, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You agree that the information you provide to Pericept on registration and at all other times will be true, accurate, current, and complete. You also agree that you will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up-to-date at all times.

If you change or deactivate the email that you used to create a BIMtrace account, you or the Administrator must update your account information within 72 hours to prevent us from sending to someone else messages intended for you.

If at any time you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure (e.g., in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of your account ID, password, or any payment information, if applicable), then you shall immediately notify Pericept. You may be liable for the losses incurred by Pericept or others due to any unauthorized use of your account or any of the BIMtrace Services.

9. Modification of these Terms

Pericept reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these Terms at any time by posting the amended Terms to the Site, the Applications, the Software or the Services. If Pericept updates these Terms, it will update the “last updated” date at the top of the Terms.  Please check these Terms, including any Policies, periodically for changes. Your continued use of the BIMtrace Services after the posting of changes constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes. In the event that a change to these Terms materially modifies your rights or obligations (including applicable fees), Pericept will make reasonable efforts to notify you of such change. Pericept may provide notice through a pop-up or banner within any of the BIMtrace Services, by sending an email to any address you may have used to register for an account, or through other similar mechanisms. Additionally, if the changed Terms materially modify your rights or obligations, Pericept may require you to provide consent by accepting the changed Terms. If Pericept requires your acceptance of the changed Terms, changes are effective only after your acceptance. For all other changes, except as stated elsewhere by Pericept, such amended Terms or fees will automatically be effective, replacing the previously-effective Terms or fees, thirty (30) days after they are initially posted on any of the BIMtrace Services.  IF AT ANY TIME YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE YOUR USE OF ALL BIMTRACE SERVICES.

To the extent that any modifications to the Terms or Policies are not allowed under applicable laws, the prior most recent version of the Terms or Policies shall continue to apply.

10. Digital Millennium Copyright Act

It is Pericept’s policy to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. For more information, please go to Pericept’s DMCA Notification Guidelines at http://Pericept.com/DMCA/.

APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, PERICEPT’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

19.2. Limitation of Damages

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

19.4. Third Party Sites

THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ALSO APPLY WITH RESPECT TO DAMAGES INCURRED BY YOU BY REASON OF ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD OR PROVIDED ON ANY THIRD PARTY SITES OR OTHERWISE BY THIRD PARTIES OTHER THAN PERICEPT AND RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED ON ANY OF THE BIMTRACE SERVICES OR RECEIVED THROUGH ANY THIRD PARTY SITES.

19.5. Basis of the Bargain

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT PERICEPT HAS OFFERED THE BIMTRACE SERVICES, SET ITS PRICES, AND ENTERED INTO THESE TERMS IN RELIANCE UPON THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN, THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND PERICEPT, AND THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND PERICEPT. PERICEPT WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE BIMTRACE SERVICES TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY REASONABLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.

19.6. Limitations by Applicable Law

CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF YOU RESIDE IN SUCH A JURISDICTION, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.

Notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after the email is sent, unless Pericept is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, Pericept may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through any of the BIMtrace Services. In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing. Notice posted on any of the BIMtrace Services is deemed given 30 days following the initial posting.

If a dispute arises between you and Pericept, the goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective methods of resolving the dispute quickly.

Before resorting to these dispute methods, Pericept strongly encourages you to first contact Pericept directly to seek a resolution.

21.3(a). Choice of Law

These Terms shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION, PROCEEDING, CAUSE OF ACTION OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY CLAIM OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR ANY OF THE BIMTRACE SERVICES.

21.3(b). Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

21.3(b)i. Arbitration

YOU AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND PERICEPT (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH CLAIM INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR ANY OF THE BIMTRACE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, YOUR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION’S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND PERICEPT HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND PERICEPTWOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. You may bring claims only on your own behalf.

Neither you nor Pericept will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST PERICEPT INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if Pericept is a party to the proceeding.

This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either Pericept or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.

21.3(b)ii. Judicial Forum for Disputes

In the event that the agreement to arbitrate under Section 21.3(b) is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Pericept agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) must be brought solely and exclusively in, and will be subject to the service of process and other applicable procedural rules of, the federal or state courts of Travis County, TX. Both you and Pericept irrevocably consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Pericept may bring a claim for equitable relief in any court with proper jurisdiction.

21.3(b)iii. Survival

This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your use of any of the BIMtrace Services or your relationship with Pericept.

21.3(c). Improperly Filed Claims

All claims you bring against Pericept must be resolved in accordance with this Section 21.3. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section 21.3 shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section 21.3, Pericept may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $15,000, provided that Pericept has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.

21.3(d). Prevailing Party

In the event that either party institutes any legal suit, action or proceeding against the other party arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Privacy Policy, or any of the BIMtrace Services, the prevailing party in the suit, action or proceeding shall be entitled to receive in addition to all other damages to which it may be entitled, the costs incurred by such party in conducting the suit, action or proceeding, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses and court costs.

21.3(e). Limitation on Time to File Claims

ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS, THE PRIVACY POLICY OR ANY OF THE BIMTRACE SERVICES, ANY PRODUCT, ANY CONTENT OR YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

21.4. Severability

21.5. Assignment
