Customer-Specific Supplement

2 minute read
Last updated October 15, 2018

The terms of the Customer-Specific Supplement (“Customer-Specific Supplement”) below supplement and amend Customer’s Contract (as defined in our Customer Terms of Service) if the Customer falls into the corresponding category of Customer. If there is any conflict between the Customer-Specific Supplement and the Contract, the applicable terms in the Customer-Specific Supplement will prevail.

1. Healthcare Customers

Customer acknowledges that Dovetail is not a “Business Associate” as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and related amendments and regulations as updated or replaced (“HIPAA”), and that the Services are not HIPAA compliant. Customer must not use, disclose, transmit or otherwise process any “Protected Health Information” as defined in HIPAA (“PHI”) through the Services. Customer agrees that we cannot support and have no liability for PHI received from Customer, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.

2. Education Professional Customers

If Customer is a school or educator in the United States and wants its students, who are over the age of 13, to use the Services, Customer is responsible for complying with the U.S. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”). This means Customer must notify those students’ parents/guardians of the personally identifiable information that it will collect and share with us and obtain parental/guardian consent before its students sign up or use the Services. When obtaining such consent, Customer should provide parents/guardians with a copy of our User Privacy Policy.

Customer must keep all consents on file and provide them to us if we request them. If Customer is located outside of the United States, we will rely upon Customer to obtain any required consents or approvals from the parent or guardian of any student covered by similar laws and, as a condition to Customer’s and its students’ use of the Services, Customer will comply with such laws.

3. Patent Assertion Entities

You agree that if Customer is a Patent Assertion Entity or is acting on behalf of, or for the benefit of a Patent Assertion Entity, Customer will not assert, or authorize, assist, encourage, or enable any third party to assert, any claim, or pursue any actions, suits, proceedings, or demands, against Dovetail Research Pty Ltd (ABN 84 615 270 025) that allege that the Services infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any intellectual property rights (including patents). A “Patent Assertion Entity”, sometimes referred to as a ‘non-practicing entity’ or a ‘patent troll,’ is (a) any entity that derives or seeks to derive most of its revenue from the offensive assertion of patent rights, or (b) directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with an entity described in (a). This section will survive any termination or expiration of the Contract.
