10. Telephone “Turbo Dialer” Service Policy
Customer understands and acknowledges that Shape does not and is not required to provide Emergency Service, where “Emergency Service” is defined as services that connect a user to emergency services personnel or a public safety answering point (“PSAP”), pursuant to applicable regulatory requirements.

Services provided by Shape do not permit the dialing of “911” or any other emergency telephone numbers.
Shape does not provide Emergency Service in conjunction with the Software Suite, the Service or any other services that may be used by Customer in connection with the Service. Shape, its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, affiliates nor agents will be liable for any claim, damage, or loss arising from, or relating to, Customer’s use of any other service provided hereunder to contact a PSAP or Emergency Services personnel. Customer specifically waives, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, any and all such claims or causes of action, arising from or relating to Shape’s services or any other service provided hereunder to contact a PSAP or other Emergency Services personnel. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Shape, its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, affiliates and agents from any and all claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, court costs and attorneys fees) arising out of the fact that Shape does not offer Emergency Service
Customer agrees to comply with all federal, state and/or local law (including, without limitation, 47 USC § 227) related to or connected with providing, selling, licensing and delivering information services and telecommunications services and products. Customer assumes all liability and responsibility for use of the Service in compliance with any federal, state or local laws, rules or regulations pertaining to the use of telephones, email, fax, automated telephonic equipment, automatic telephone dialing systems, artificial or prerecorded voice messages, and other telephony and telecommunications products and services. Customer’s limitations on its use of the Service may include but are not limited to: commercial solicitations; advertisements; delivering artificial or prerecorded telephonic messages to homes, businesses, hospitals, cellular phones or paging systems without the prior consent of the called party; and restrictions on the time of day in which such calls are permissible. A violation of any such laws may result in substantial penalties and other sanctions. Any person intending to use the Service for solicitation purposes and/or for any other purpose regulated by federal, state or local laws should consult with his or her own legal counsel, prior to entering into this Agreement to determine the extent of permissible activities. To assist Customer in complying with certain laws, rules, and regulations relevant to direct marketing and to help Customer determine if a particular phone number is a wireless phone number, Shape may obtain and make available as part of the Services via a third party service provider standard third party wireless number lists (the “Wireless Lists”). In the event such Wireless Lists are made available by Shape, Customer may submit a phone number to Shape, in a manner and format to be determined by Shape, to check against the Wireless Lists to determine if the number submitted matches a number on such lists. Customer agrees and acknowledges that Shape makes no representations, warranties or covenants relating to the availability of the Wireless Lists at any particular time during the Term of this Agreement. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that, while Shape may make available the Wireless Lists to assist Customer in complying with certain laws, rules, and regulations relevant to direct marketing, Customer’s use of the Wireless Lists could generate results that are not compliant with such laws due to inaccuracies or errors in the Wireless Lists as provided by their publishers. Shape DOES NOT MAKE, AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS, ANY WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO THE WIRELESS LISTS OR THE USE OF SUCH WIRELESS LISTS TO ENSURE CUSTOMER’S COMPLIANCE WITH ANY LAW, RULE OR REGULATION. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, Shape DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT THE WIRELESS LISTS WILL BE ACCURATE OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE USE OF SUCH WIRELESS LISTS WILL ACCURATELY INDICATE WHETHER ANY PHONE NUMBER SUBMITTED BY CUSTOMER TO Shape IS OR IS NOT A WIRELESS NUMBER. Shape shall have no responsibility or liability to Customer, under this Agreement or otherwise, with respect to (x) any inaccuracies or errors in the Wireless Lists; and (y) Customer’s use of the results obtained from accessing the Wireless Lists. Customer agrees that Shape will not be responsible for Customer’s use of the Service, and Customer agrees to indemnify Shape for any claims, liabilities or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Shape based upon Customer’s use of the Service in any manner not in compliance with federal, state or local laws (including any private right of action thereunder). Customer is solely responsible for obtaining the consent of or a release from those persons or entities, to whom or to which Customer intends to send communications or Messages using the Service. Customer agrees to periodically review the list of recipients to be contacted, to contact only those persons who the Customer is legally permitted to contact from Customer Data, and only in the manner permitted, under federal, state and local law, and to delete those recipients that no longer wish to receive communications from Customer. If Customer is advised by any party that they do not wish to receive communications from Customer, then Customer agrees to promptly add those parties to its internal company-specific Do Not Call List, and thereafter refrain from calling such parties. If Shape determines, in its sole discretion, that the receipt of communications via the Service is not consensual, or violates any federal, state and/or local rule and regulation, or is harassing to consumers or businesses, Shape may suspend the Turbo Dialer service for Customer until Shape is reasonably satisfied that the violation is cured.
Customer agrees that usage of Turbo Dialer will not exceed two thousand (2,000) minutes of calling time per license each month (“Reasonable Usage Limit”). In circumstances where Customer exceeds the Reasonable Usage Limit, Shape may charge Customer for minutes of call time used that exceed two thousand minutes of calling time per license at five (5) cents per minute.
Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary: (a) Turbo Dialer is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis; (b) Shape does not warrant that the Turbo Dialer service will be uninterrupted or that all communications will be delivered; (c) Shape makes no warranties, expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties or merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose in relation to Turbo Dialer; and (d) Customer understands that Turbo Dialer may be inaccessible or inoperable for reasons outside of Shape’s control including but not limited to (i) Customer equipment malfunctions; or (ii) service interruptions caused by independent telecommunication providers.
Turbo Dialer multi-line dialing customers agree to record and maintain a safe harbor message that complies with the Federal Trade Commission ”Telemarketing Sales Rule” by stating the name and telephone number of the seller on whose behalf a call is placed.

To realize the full value of Shape’s Services and Consulting Services, your participation and effort are needed. Resources that may be required from you include a project manager, one or more content creators, a sales sponsor, an executive sponsor and a technical resource (or equivalent). Responsibilities that may be required include planning of marketing programs; setting of a content creation calendar; creating blog posts, social media content, Calls-To-Action (CTAs), downloads, emails, nurturing content, and other materials; acting as internal liaison between sales and marketing; providing top level internal goals for the use of the Service; attending regular success review meetings; and supporting the integration of the Service with other sales and marketing systems.
By using any of Shape’s Services (also referred to as “CRM”) with other parts of the Service, you understand that all Contact Information will be stored in a unified database of Contacts associated with your subscription, and that all workflows you use will pull from this unified list of Contacts.
If you use our CRM, you may see fields in our company database marked with an orange dot, or highlighted in some other way. These fields are those that we let our CRM users update, to aim to keep our company database as current as possible. If you choose to submit updated information to these fields, you grant us the right to use such information in any manner that we choose (including, without limitation, publicly), without any payment or attribution to you. You represent and warrant that you have a right to share such information with us for our use and that you are not violating any confidentiality obligations by submitting the information. This information submitted by you will not be considered Customer Data or Confidential Information under this Agreement.
We do not guarantee the availability of our CRM’s outbound calling feature in any or all geographical areas. If you are interested in obtaining a list of countries to which we currently offer outbound calling, please contact our Support team. We may update this list at any time without notice to you. We may also disable your ability, or charge you a fee, to make calls to certain countries if we choose to, even if we generally offer outbound calling to these countries. One reason we may do this is if you are making a disproportionate or excessive number of calls to these countries.
Certain features of the CRM allow you to integrate your email account with the CRM. By enabling those features, you grant us access to your incoming mail, inbox history, and contacts to enable us to identify relevant emails to be stored within the CRM. The CRM tracks email correspondence that you flag for tracking by sending the email from inside the CRM, BCC’ing the email to the CRM, or otherwise opting to have an email tracked. You understand that the correspondences you track will be visible to other users on your CRM team.
If we make alpha or beta access to some or all of the Service (the “Alpha/Beta Services”) available to you (i) the Alpha/Beta Services are provided “as is” and without warranty of any kind, (ii) we may suspend, limit, or terminate the Alpha/Beta Services for any reason at any time without notice, and (iii) we will not be liable to you for damages of any kind related to your use of the Alpha/Beta Services. If we inform you of additional terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Alpha/Beta Services, those will apply as well. We might require your participation to be confidential, and we might also require you to provide feedback to us about your use of the Alpha/Beta Services. You agree that we own all rights to use and incorporate your feedback into our services and products, without payment or attribution to you.

You grant permission to us and our licensors to use the Customer Materials and Customer Data only as necessary to provide the Service and Consulting Services to you and as permitted by this Agreement.

As used herein, “Confidential Information” means all confidential and proprietary information of a party (“Disclosing Party”) disclosed to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure including, without limitation, business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product designs and business processes. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the terms of this Agreement, the Service and the Shape Technology shall be deemed to be Shape’s Confidential Information. Confidential Information shall not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (ii) was known to the Receiving Party without confidentiality obligations prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (iii) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; or (iv) is received without restrictions on use or disclosure from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party. The Receiving Party shall not disclose any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to a third party, other than its employees or consultants who have a need to know such information in connection with the Receiving Party’s performance hereunder, or use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement. Each party agrees to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of the other party in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential information of like kind, but in no event shall either party exercise less than reasonable care in protecting such Confidential Information.
A Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by any applicable law, regulation or court; provided however, that the Receiving Party will (to the extent it is not prohibited from doing so) notify the Disclosing Party in writing, promptly after becoming aware of its obligations to make such a disclosure and will permit the Disclosing Party to seek to challenge or limit such required disclosure. Further, each party may disclose Confidential Information of the other party for the limited purpose of enforcing its rights under this Agreement before a court of competent jurisdiction, provided that such disclosure is accomplished in such a manner so as to protect the rights of the parties to this Agreement to the maximum extent reasonably possible.
If the Receiving Party discloses or uses (or threatens to disclose or use) any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in breach of this Section 17, the Disclosing Party shall have the right, in addition to any other remedies available to it, to seek injunctive relief to enjoin such acts, it being specifically acknowledged by the parties that such breach is likely to result in irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party for which legal remedies are inadequate.
You grant us the right to add your name and company logo to our customer list and website. Customer agrees that Shape may use Customer’s name and trademarks in Shape’s advertising, publicity and other promotional activities. Shape shall comply with applicable trademark usage guidelines or other instructions provided by Customer in writing regarding the proper use of its trademarks.

You will indemnify, defend and hold us harmless, at your expense, against any third-party claim, suit, action, or proceeding (each, an "Action") brought against us (and our officers, directors, employees, agents, service providers, licensors, and affiliates) by a third party not affiliated with us to the extent that such Action is based upon or arises out of (a) unauthorized or illegal use of the Service by you, (b) your noncompliance with or breach of this Agreement, (c) your use of Third-Party Products, or (d) the unauthorized use of the Service by any other person using your User information. We will: notify you in writing within thirty (30) days of our becoming aware of any such claim; give you sole control of the defense or settlement of such a claim; and provide you (at your expense) with any and all information and assistance reasonably requested by you to handle the defense or settlement of the claim.
