The Dataro Service
- The Dataro Service is comprised of Dataro’s software, applications, processes, methodologies, products and services and includes:
- our ‘propensity modelling’ software products and CRM Integrations, whereby customers can transmit data to Dataro, access tools and analytics, and receive propensity scores; and
- other associated products and services provided to you by Dataro, focussed primarily on data-science services for fundraising and/or marketing optimisation,(together, the Dataro Service).
- We are constantly developing the Dataro Service, so we reserve the right to change the Dataro Service and the products and services available at any time. We make no representation that the Dataro Service (or any element of it) is appropriate or available for use in all locations, at all times, or by all organisations. For new or updated products or services, additional terms may apply and we will notify you of those terms before you start using those products or services.

However, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Dataro Service: (i) for scheduled or emergency maintenance; (ii) if you are in breach of this Agreement, including failure to pay any amounts due to Dataro; or (iii) if we reasonably believe that you are misusing, abusing or tampering with the Dataro Service (or any element thereof). We reserve our rights to seek damages or other compensation in such circumstances.

Your responsibilities and warranties
- You will cooperate with Dataro in connection with the performance of this Agreement by making available such personnel, materials, information and assistance as we reasonably require to provide the Dataro Service.

- If you fail to pay fees on time or we are unable to successfully process your payment (as applicable), we reserve the right to charge a late payment fee calculated at a rate of ten percent (10%) per annum but no less than $10.00 per month. This amount represents a genuine and reasonable pre-estimate of costs associated with managing and processing late payments. Without limiting our rights, if you fail to pay any fees within the timeframe and in the manner required, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Dataro Service.

For these purposes, Dataro may also aggregate or combine this data or information with other de-identified or anonymised data sources (including from other clients). This licence survives the termination of this Agreement.
- In order to provide the Dataro Service (or any parts thereof), Dataro may be required to source and utilise Third Party Material. In such circumstances, the Intellectual Property Rights in such Third Party Material is retained by the originator and is released for use by third parties on the basis of a non-exclusive licence.

Your Feedback & Submissions
- As part of using the Dataro Service, Dataro may provide you with the opportunity to submit comments, information, feedback and ideas regarding our company, products or services (Feedback). Any such Feedback will be deemed, at the time of communication to us, the property of Dataro, and Dataro shall be entitled to full rights of ownership, including without limitation, unrestricted right to use or disclose such Feedback in any form and for any purpose without restriction and without compensation to you.
- Each party must take reasonable steps to keep the other party’s Confidential Information confidential at all times. Each party agrees: (a) to take the same security precautions to protect against disclosure or unauthorized use of the other party’s Confidential Information that the party takes with its own Confidential Information, but in no event less than reasonable precautions; (b) not to, without the prior written approval of the other party, disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to any third party or use the Confidential Information otherwise than in accordance with this Agreement; and (c) to procure that its employees and agents, and any subcontractors, do not make public, use or disclose the other party’s Confidential Information other than in accordance with this Agreement.
- A party will not be in breach of this clause in circumstances where it is legally compelled to disclose the other party’s Confidential Information or where the Confidential Information: (a) was in the public domain at the time of its provision; (b) became part of the public domain after its provision, otherwise than through a disclosure by the other party or any person to whom the other party has disclosed that information; (c) is independently developed by the other party without the use of the disclosing party’s information; or (d) is or came lawfully into the possession of the other party otherwise than as a result of a disclosure in breach of an obligation of confidence.
- These obligations of confidentiality survive the termination of this Agreement.
- Each party will have the right to disclose the existence but not the terms and conditions of this Agreement (unless such disclosure is approved in writing by both parties prior to such disclosure or is made on a confidential basis to potential investors or acquirors). If the Dataro Service includes a CRM Integration, Dataro may also disclose on a confidential basis to the applicable CRM provider the existence of this Agreement and the fees payable, solely for the purpose of calculating any fees payable to the CRM provider by Dataro (e.g. fees payable for allowing Dataro’s CRM Integration).
Privacy and Data Security
- Each party must: (a) follow the other party’s reasonable directions in relation to any Personal Information provided by the other party and comply with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth); (b) provide all reasonable assistance requested by the party disclosing the Personal Information to enable it to resolve any inquiry or complaint relating to the Personal Information; and (c) immediately notify the other party if it knows of or suspects unauthorised use, copying or disclosure of Personal Information or becomes aware that a disclosure of that Personal Information may be required by law.
- Dataro’s strong preference is that you do not provide any Personal Information about your customers or donors except as required for us to provide the Dataro Service. Without limiting our rights, Dataro may de-identify or delete from Dataro systems any such data that is uploaded to the Dataro Service.
- You authorise Dataro to collect Customer Data directly from you or your third party providers (such as your CRM), including via CRM Integrations, for the purposes contemplated in this Agreement. Dataro will collect, hold, process and use such Customer Data in accordance with this Agreement and will maintain reasonable commercial and electronic safeguards against the destruction, loss or alteration of, or unauthorised access to, any Customer Data in its possession or control.
- Where Customer Data is transmitted or made available to Dataro, except where required by law or otherwise approved by you, Dataro will: i) not use the Customer Data other than in accordance with this Agreement; ii) not make the Customer Data available to any third party, other than a subcontractor or processor approved by you; and iii) not remove or transfer the Customer Data to any non-Dataro premises or systems without your prior written approval, including as stated in this Agreement.
- GDPR Data Processing Addendum. Depending on where your contacts are based (i.e. if you are subject to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation) or any successor legislation), our Data Processing Addendum may also apply to the personal data of others (such as your donors) that you provide to Dataro. The Data Processing Addendum is available on request and, where applicable, forms a part of the Agreement.
- You acknowledge and agree that, in order to provide the Dataro Service, Dataro utilises cloud infrastructure provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and that Customer Data transmitted to Dataro will be processed and stored on AWS infrastructure (with servers physically located in Australia). Dataro will give you reasonable written notice if it elects to change providers.
Third Party Services
- You acknowledge and agree that parts of the Dataro Service (e.g. CRM Integrations) may operate on, with or using application programming interfaces (APIs) and/or other services operated or provided by third parties (Third Party Services), such as your CRM provider. We are not responsible for the operation of any Third Party Services or the availability or operation of the Dataro Service to the extent such availability and operation is dependent upon Third Party Services. You are solely responsible for procuring any and all rights necessary for you to access Third Party Services, for complying with any applicable terms or conditions thereof, and for all fees payable to your third party providers. We do not make any representations or warranties with respect to Third Party Services. Any exchange of data or other interaction between you and a third party provider is solely between you and such third party provider and is governed by such third party’s terms and conditions.
Liability and Indemnity
- You indemnify us: You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Dataro (and its associated entities, employees, agents and directors) against any claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) we incur arising out of or connected with: (a) any breach by you of these Terms & Conditions or any of the warranties given or made by you; (b) your violation of any of the rights of another (including privacy, confidentiality and intellectual property rights) or of any laws, rules or regulations; and (c) any third-party claim against us relating to your use of the Dataro Service (except to the extent that Dataro is at fault). This obligation survives the termination of this Agreement and your use of the Dataro Service.

Dataro may amend or update our pricing from time to time. Changes to Dataro’s pricing will not apply retrospectively.

These updates may include bug fixes, feature enhancements or improvements, or entirely new versions of the Dataro Service. You agree that Dataro may automatically deliver such updates to you or include such updates as part of the Dataro Service. Occasionally we may offer a service at no charge, such as a beta service or a limited trial account. Because of the nature of these services, you use them at your own risk.
- Backups & Downtime: You are responsible for maintaining copies or backups of your data including as made available to Dataro.

- Waiver: Any waiver of any provision of these Terms & Conditions will only be effective if in writing and signed by Dataro. Failure by Dataro to exercise or enforce any right or provision shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.

If this is not possible, the clause (or where possible, the offending part) is to be severed from these Terms & Conditions without affecting the enforceability, validity or legality of the remaining clauses (or parts of those clauses) which will continue in full force and effect.
