How Your Sensika License works
Sensika’s services monitor and analyze traditional online media, internet forums, blogs, microblogging platforms, specific social media networks, print media and broadcast media. Based on flexible Boolean queries with keyword and structured meta-data filters, the Sensika platform provides Search Results in the form of hyperlinks. These hyperlinks link to Third Party Sites on which the content is published.
Sensika does not screen each hyperlink in Search Results, so we cannot and do not audit or endorse any Third Party Site, nor are we responsible for any Third Party Content reached through the Services. You are responsible for evaluating whether to access a Third Party Site, and agree to be bound by its terms. You agree not to copy, reproduce, distribute, transmit, modify, sell, license or otherwise exploit Third Party Content unless that third party has expressly granted you those rights.
Vast majority of our online sources provide their content for free. However, some media sources in our source catalog require additional fees to access their content. These aren’t included in the price of your Sensika subscription, and should you choose to access that content, you agree to pay for it.
We have the right to terminate any Services or accounts through which any IP (including Sensika’s) has been infringed, or where use of the Services breaches any applicable law.
Access to our Services
When you purchase a Sensika subscription you get a non-exclusive and non-transferable right for your Authorized Users (the quantity is specified in your Purchase Order) to use the Services. While you can use the Services for any business purpose, it must be your own, and on your own company’s behalf. All Authorized Users must be employees or agents of your company, unless they are your contracted external consultants who may use the Services exclusively on your behalf.
If you are a marketing or public relations agency using the Sensika Services on behalf of your client(s), you agree that:
- The agreement between you and your client(s) is as protective of Sensika’s rights as this Agreement.
- That agreement permits you to provide us with your client(s)’ information, and act on their behalf, if applicable.
- Sensika is not a party to your agreement with your client(s) and you are solely responsible for delivery of your agency services to your client.
- Payments due under this Agreement must be satisfied regardless of the status of their payments to you.
- You shall inform Sensika in advance and seek written approval if a government or law enforcement entity requires any access to content or data provided by Sensika Service.
Technical Requirements to use the Services
Your Authorized Users need only a modern web browser, an internet connection, and their user account credentials. You are responsible for providing the hardware, and internet access to use the Services. You are responsible for the activity on your client account and the accounts of your Authorized Users, including protecting any passwords.
The price and payment terms of your Services are negotiated in advance and stipulated in your Purchase Order.
Unless otherwise specified in your Purchase Order, payment is due upfront in a single lump sum and is invoiced at the start of your subscription (first-time customers) or in advance of your renewal (current customers). You are responsible for paying any applicable taxes which aren’t included in the price and will appear on your invoice.
All payments are non-refundable (unless otherwise specified here.) If you aren’t able to satisfy your payment obligations within 30 days of your invoice due date, we have the right to charge a Late Fee and/or suspend or terminate access to the Services.
We guarantee service levels of 99.9% uptime calculated on an yearly basis. If there were ever a technical outage of the Services we will provide a refund – should such an outage ever make the Services unavailable to you for more than 3 consecutive business days following your notice to Sensika, we will issue you a credit equal to the pro-rata length of the outage (based on your term payment to Sensika).
If you breach this Agreement, Sensika has the right to suspend access to the Service immediately upon discovering your breach; you’ll have 30 days to cure that breach at which point we have the right to terminate.
Should we materially breach this Agreement (and can’t cure within 30 days of your written notice) you’re entitled to a pro-rata refund of the uncured Services.
