Version 2.1 (Last Updated October 2016)

Welcome to Trimble Connect.  Please read these terms of service (these “Terms”) carefully as they form a contract between you and the Trimble entity listed in Section 20 of these Terms  (“Trimble,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) that governs your access and use of: (i) the Trimble Connect collaboration platform provided by Trimble for online storage, sharing and processing of files, materials, data, text, images or other content (collectively, “Content”); (ii) software provided or made available by Trimble (the “Software”); and, (iii) any written or electronic documentation provided or made available by Trimble (the “Documentation”) (collectively the “Service(s)”).  

  1. Acceptance of Terms of Service; Changes to Terms of Service

BY USING THE SERVICE OR CLICKING THE CHECK BOX INDICATING YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS INCLUDING ALL DOCUMENTS AND POLICIES REFERENCED HEREIN.  If you are using the Service on behalf of a business, that business accepts these Terms. 

BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE 18 YEARS OLD OR OLDER AND CAPABLE OF ENTERING INTO A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT.

 

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICE.

Trimble may update and change these Terms from time to time in its discretion.  Please check these Terms periodically for changes.  A current copy of these Terms can be accessed and viewed at any time at connect.trimble.com.  Trimble may notify you of the changes through communications through the Service.  Unless you have a current paid subscription, your continued use of the Service following the posting of any changes to these Terms will confirm your acceptance of those changes.  If you have a current paid subscription, such changes become effective for you upon renewal of your then-current subscription.

  1. Access and use of the Service

Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, Trimble hereby grants you the non-exclusive right during the Term to: (a) to use the Service to create, manage, access, retrieve and edit Content on the Service related to one or more related building or construction projects (each such repository, a “Project”), and (b) grant access (and remove access) for individual users (who may be your personnel, your contractors, or unrelated third parties) to access your Project (each such user, an “Authorized User”) including giving Authorized Users the right to create, manage, access, retrieve, and edit Content in your Projects, up to the number of Authorized Users allowed.

In connection with your use of the Service, you will comply with additional terms and policies referenced in these Terms.  For example, Trimble uses and protects your information as described in the privacy policy located at connect.trimble.com.  In addition, certain additional terms will apply depending on what level of the Service you have purchased. 

These Terms apply only to the Service.  Other Trimble products and services may be provided to you through the Service pursuant to a separate agreement.  If you obtain a product or service from Trimble that is not part of the Service and that Trimble product or service is provided without additional terms, that product or service is provided "AS-IS" with no warranties whatsoever, express or implied, and your use of that product or service is at your own risk. 

If you register for a free or trial subscription, your right to use the Service will be limited by the restrictions for free or trial subscriptions.

  1. Your Account and Passwords

To obtain access to certain Services, you will be required to obtain an Account with Trimble (become a “Registered User”), by completing a registration form and designating a user ID and password.  Until you apply for and are approved by Trimble (or an Administrator) to become a Registered User, in Trimble's sole discretion, your access to the Service will be limited to the areas of the Service, if any, that Trimble makes available to the general public or permits its customers to make available unregistered users.  When registering with Trimble you must: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as requested by the Service (such information being the “Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.    An “Account” means a user account created by the user for itself or by an Administrator for a user.  An “Administrator” means a person who has an Account with the authority to utilize the Administrative Console to create and manage Accounts associated with you.  “Administrative Console” means the functionality for managing user access, security and other administrative functionality for Accounts associated with the Service.

You must keep your Account and passwords confidential and not authorize any third party to access or use the Service on your behalf, unless we provide an approved mechanism for such use.  You may allow your Authorized Users  to access the Service in compliance with these Terms solely for your benefit.  You will be fully liable for any and all use of the Service by your Authorized Users.  You must contact us right away if you suspect misuse of your Account or any security breach in the Service.  You are responsible for all activities that take place with your Account.  Trimble will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any unauthorized use of your Accounts. 

You will immediately notify Trimble in writing of any unauthorized use of any (a) Content, (b) any Account, (c) the Service that comes to your attention.  In the event of any such unauthorized use by any third party that obtained access through you, you will take all steps necessary to terminate such unauthorized use.  You will provide Trimble with such cooperation and assistance related to any such unauthorized use as Trimble may reasonably request.

  1. Administrator Terms.

If you have purchased a Business Account or another type of account that allows for administrator access, then the administrator terms in this Section 4 apply. You will promptly appoint an Administrator for the Administrative Console.  Trimble will initially provide a login and password (which may be changed by the Administrator after initial login) to the Administrator to access the Administrative Console.  As between the Administrator and Trimble, the Administrator will be solely responsible for the assignment and management of Accounts.  Should an Authorized User forget his/her password, the Administrator will have the right to reset it from the Administrative Console.

The Administrator may use the Administrative Console to create or delete Projects. Subject to any storage capacity limits as may be identified in an Order (as defined below), the Administrator will have the right to establish an upper limit on allowed usable storage per Project, on a case-by-case basis. The Administrator can monitor activity for any of the Projects individually or in the aggregate, including Content currently in use, bandwidth used since the first day of the current month, most recent login activity, Authorized Users currently collaborating in Projects, and date of last upload or download and action taken at that time.

  1. General Provisions

 

Except as otherwise specified herein, these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Trimble with respect to your use of the Service and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and Trimble with respect to use of the Service.  For the avoidance of doubt, if you order a fee-based subscription to a Service, additional Trimble terms and conditions on the Trimble order form will apply to the purchase of the additional Services.  In the event of an inconsistency between these Terms and the terms and conditions in an order, these Terms will control.  Trimble rejects additional or conflicting terms of any form-purchasing document provided by you.  Trimble may assign these Terms to a third party.  These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted under these Terms, may not be transferred or assigned by you to a third party, except that these Terms may be assigned, without the consent of Trimble, as part of a merger, or sale of substantially all your assets.  Any rights not otherwise expressly granted by these Terms are reserved by Trimble, its suppliers or other developers. The failure of Trimble to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any part of these Terms are held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction that portion will be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The official language of these Terms is English. If there is a conflict between the English language version and any translation, the English language version will control.  Any breach by a party of these Terms or violation of the other party's intellectual property rights could cause irreparable injury or harm to the other party.  The other party may seek a court order to stop any breach or avoid any future breach.
