Description of the ComplianceGO Services

The ComplianceGO Services include tools for implementing an environmental management program, including, for example, a reminder tool for recommending inspections at your sites based on available weather data and a forms tool for creating compliance documentation.  You may use the ComplianceGO Services to facilitate your compliance with environmental management regulations or requirements (the “Purpose”).  However, you should not rely on the ComplianceGO Services to ensure your compliance with any governing regulations.  You should only rely on the ComplianceGO Services for informational purposes.  

License and Restrictions

Subject to your compliance with the Terms of Use and any applicable subscription agreement, ComplianceGO grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to use the ComplianceGO Services.  You agree that you will not use, or attempt to use, the ComplianceGO Services for anything other than the Purpose.  

You further agree not to: 

(a)  alter the ComplianceGO Services in any way;

(b) disassemble, decompile, reverse-engineer or create derivative works of the ComplianceGO Services;

(c) remove any notices from the ComplianceGO Services including any copyright or trademark notice; 

(d) use the ComplianceGO Services for any unlawful or criminal purpose, including but not limited to, storing, reproducing or distributing any content in violation of any third-party’s intellectual property rights; or(e) gain or attempt to gain unauthorized access to the ComplianceGO Services.

Your Use of the ComplianceGO Services

To access the ComplianceGO Services, you must create a user account or have a user account created for you.  When you create, or have created, a user account to access the ComplianceGO Services, you must provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself including, but not limited to, your full legal name and email address.  You also agree that you will correct or update any information associated with your user account that is untrue, inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete.  If ComplianceGO has reasonable grounds to suspect that any information associated with your user account is untrue, inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete, ComplianceGO may disable your user account and prevent you from using the ComplianceGO Services.

You are responsible for your use of the ComplianceGO Services and for all content you may create, modify, store, share or otherwise manage using the ComplianceGO Services.  If ComplianceGO becomes aware that you are using the ComplianceGO Services for an improper purpose or to create, modify, store, share or otherwise manage content that violates any provision of the Terms of Use or any third party right, ComplianceGO may disable your user account and/or remove or disable access to any content associated with your user account.

Organization Accounts and Editors

A user account can be associated with an organization rather than a particular individual (an “organization account”).  In such cases, the organization and any individual that uses the organization account to access the ComplianceGO Services shall be responsible for all actions performed using the organization account and for all content associated with the organization account.  

An organization account may be given editor permissions (an “editor account”).  Any editor account that an organization may maintain will have the right to create other user accounts associated with the organization and to configure the ComplianceGO Services for such user accounts.  In such cases, the organization and any individual that uses the editor account to access the ComplianceGO Services shall be responsible for i) ensuring confidentiality of credentials for any user account created using the editor account, ii) creating user accounts, including other organization accounts and/or editor accounts only for competent individuals in the organization, and iii) ensuring that all activities that occur in connection with your editor account comply with the Terms of Use. You understand that ComplianceGO is not responsible for user account administration and internal management of the ComplianceGO Services for you or your organization. You are responsible for taking necessary steps for ensuring that your organization does not lose control of editor accounts.

Personal Information and Privacy

Personal information you provide to ComplianceGO through the ComplianceGO Services is governed by the ComplianceGO Privacy Policy. Your election to use the ComplianceGO Services indicates your acceptance of the terms of the ComplianceGO Privacy Policy available at www.compliancego.com/privacy. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username, password and other sensitive information. You are responsible for all activities that occur in your user account and you agree to inform ComplianceGO immediately of any unauthorized use of your user account.

Impersonation or Unauthorized Access

You may not impersonate another person or entity, or misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity while using the ComplianceGO Services. You may not use or attempt to use another person’s account or personal information to gain access to the ComplianceGO Services. You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to ComplianceGO, or to the computer systems or networks connected to ComplianceGO, through hacking, password mining, or any other means.

Inactive/De-Activated User Accounts Policy

Subject to any applicable subscription agreement, ComplianceGO reserves the right to terminate any user account that is inactive for a continuous period of 180 days. A user account that is associated with an organization will not be deemed inactive if any user account associated with the organization is active during a continuous period of 180 days.  ComplianceGO also reserves the right to terminate any user account that is in violation of the Terms of Use or for which any applicable payment has not been made.  In the event a user account is terminated, ComplianceGO may cease maintaining any data or content associated with the terminated user account. 

Data Ownership

ComplianceGO respects your right to ownership of content you create or store with the ComplianceGO Services.  ComplianceGO will not, without your permission, access, copy, distribute, store, transmit, reformat, publicly display or publicly perform any of your content except as necessary to provide the ComplianceGO Services to you or as required by law.

Your Content

You may transmit, publish or otherwise share content you create using any of the ComplianceGO Services or otherwise store the content in your user account. However, you shall be solely responsible for your content and the consequences of its transmission or publication. For example, the ComplianceGO Services will allow you to make any of your content publicly accessible through hyperlinks, and you shall be solely responsible for how such hyperlinks are distributed.  You may also share your content with other users of the ComplianceGO Services.  ComplianceGO takes no responsibility, whatsoever, for your content or how you may choose to share your content.    

In some cases, your content may be automatically accessible to other users of the ComplianceGo Services.  For example, if your user account is associated with another user account, such as an organization account, an editor account or another user account that manages your user account, your content may be accessible from the other user account.  As another example, if your content is associated with a site that was created by another user account (e.g., a user account of a city or other regulatory entity), the other user account will have access to any of your content that is associated with the site.  You acknowledge that ComplianceGO shall have no responsibility or liability to you when your content is accessed by other users in such scenarios.  If you do not want your content to be accessible to any other user account, it is your responsibility to configure your user account accordingly.  

You may receive content from other users of the ComplianceGO Services.  ComplianceGO takes no responsibility, whatsoever, for any such content you may receive.    

Although the ComplianceGO Services are configured to maintain your content in a cloud-based repository, you should create a backup of your content external to the ComplianceGO Services.  If ComplianceGo ceases to provide the ComplianceGO Services or if ComplianceGO otherwise intends to cease maintaining your content, ComplianceGO will provide you with reasonable notice to allow you to export your content.  However, if you violate the Terms of Use, ComplianceGO reserves the right to immediately terminate your account without providing notice to you.  

Even if your account remains active, ComplianceGO reserves the right to delete any of your content that is associated with a site that has been inactive for more than five years.  It is therefore your responsibility to create a backup of any such content before ComplianceGO deletes it.    

Content Provided by ComplianceGO

The ComplianceGO Services provide access to a variety of content such as, but not limited to, workflows, documents, forms, maps and weather information (“ComplianceGO Content”).  All ComplianceGO Content is provided for informational purposes only.  Although ComplianceGO strives to ensure that the ComplianceGO Content is helpful to you for the Purpose, ComplianceGO makes no representations or warranties that any ComplianceGO Content is accurate, complete, up-to-date or compliant with any law, regulation or rule.  You should not rely on the ComplianceGO Content in making any determination that your environmental management program complies with any law, regulation, rule or goal.  

By way of example, but not limitation, ComplianceGO provides forms for particular regulatory jurisdictions (e.g., state-specific forms) as part of the ComplianceGO Content.  If you choose to prepare documentation from such forms, it is solely your responsibility to ensure that the documentation complies with any applicable law, regulation or rule.  You should not assume that any form, including any portion of any form such as a certification statement or a signature requirement, complies with any law, regulation or rule.  

ComplianceGO may update the ComplianceGO Content at any time.  It is your responsibility to determine if you are using the latest version of any ComplianceGO Content.  ComplianceGO takes no responsibility for notifying you if or when it updates the ComplianceGO Content in any manner.
