3. Data Use Terms

 

3.1. You shall not include any personal data (any information relating to a particular individual) in the User Contributions.

3.2. If You request information from a particular Contributor by way of sending Request Information form on the Marketplace, ABBYY will send Your contact details and other information You decided to include together with Your request details to a Contributor that You specifically selected and only for the purpose of facilitating the establishment of a direct contact between You and the Contributor for the purpose of answering Your request.

3.4. ABBYY may aggregate the number of visits of Asset(s) made by visitors on the Marketplace (for example, 500 users visited a particular Asset in a particular month) and use such aggregated information for statistical purposes.

ABBYY may also share such aggregated statistical information related to the Contributor’s Assets with a Contributor.

3.5. Where a Contributor published its contact information (for example, business email address and company name) on a particular Contributor webpage on the Marketplace, such information shall only be used for contacting purposes with a particular Contributor as well as for the purposes of concluding or performing the directly accepted agreement (Asset Terms) between You and a Contributor. Other purposes of data processing and usage are prohibited unless You have a legal ground for other use (for example, You received an authorization from a Contributor for using so).

3.6. ABBYY may send You direct marketing communication about ABBYY products and services as well as about Assets of Contributors placed on the Marketplace in the event ABBYY has a legal ground for doing so (for example, a consent from an individual). You may unsubscribe at any time from receiving such communication by clicking the unsubscribe link inside any email received from ABBYY or via ABBYY Data Subject Access Rights Form.

3.7. Unless ABBYY states that an Asset was created by ABBYY, ABBYY is not responsible for such Asset and for any corresponding descriptions that may appear in connection with an Asset on the Marketplace. In addition, ABBYY is also not responsible for processing Your data by a Contributor or on its behalf and related to an Asset of a Contributor with whom You have accepted a direct agreement (Asset Terms) for a particular Asset of a Contributor.

 
4. Downloading and/or Activation of the Assets from the Marketplace

 

4.1. You may use an Asset only if You have an active license to use ABBYY software for which such Asset was designed. Assets labeled “free” may still consume/require processing volume from Your base ABBYY Software subscription or license.

4.2. You may download and/or activate paid or free Assets available on the Marketplace on the terms set by either ABBYY or the Contributor of those Assets, depending on who published an Asset. The Assets are provided to You under the terms of the separate agreements which are specified on the product page for the Asset (the "Asset Terms"). These General Terms of Use supplement and do not change or override the Asset Terms.

4.3. Unless the Asset page states explicitly that this Asset was created by ABBYY, the license will be granted not by ABBYY, but by the Contributor under the applicable Asset Terms.

4.4. In case an Asset You use has been converted from free to paid, You can continue to use such Asset for free in the latest installed or activated version. If You wish to benefit from the latest and future updates of such Asset, You need to purchase a subscription for the paid version of the Asset.

4.5. If You pay for use of an Asset, additional terms will apply and will be provided to You before You complete Your purchase. By downloading and/or activating an Asset, You agree to be bound by the Asset Terms.

4.6. Unless ABBYY states that an Asset was created by ABBYY, ABBYY is not responsible for such Asset and for any corresponding descriptions that may appear in connection with an Asset on the Marketplace.

4.7. Even if ABBYY reviewed or certified Assets published by Contributors, ABBYY makes no representations or warranties of any kind with respect to such Assets, including representation or warranty that the use of such Assets will (i) be uninterrupted or error-free, or (ii) meet Your requirements or expectations, even if Contributor’s Asset Terms state otherwise.

4.8. Except as provided in the Asset Terms, You bear all risks associated with Your use of an Asset.

 
5. Assets Maintenance and Support

 

5.1. Paid Assets published by ABBYY are officially and fully supported by ABBYY on terms of Your Software Maintenance and Upgrade Assurance Agreement for ABBYY Software for which such Asset is designed.

5.2. ABBYY is not obliged to maintain and support its free Assets. Maintenance and support of free Assets may be provided by ABBYY either on a “best effort” basis or via Community Support. “Best effort” means that ABBYY may at its sole discretion do whatever is possible to support Users, but has no support obligations to fix bugs, add features, etc.

5.3. ABBYY may discontinue support for any of its Assets at any time for any or no reason. ABBYY will not maintain and support Assets that have reached the end of their lifecycle (EOL).

In both cases, ABBYY will support paid Assets until the expiration of Your subscription period for such Asset.

5.4. The scope of Assets maintenance and support of Assets published by Contributors depends on the type of Contributor.

  • "ABBYY Team" means ABBYY employees in Professional Services and Customer Enablement. Assets published by ‘ABBYY Team’ are not official ABBYY Assets and are not subject to maintenance and support commitments set forth above for ABBYY Assets. ‘ABBYY Team’ is not obliged to maintain and support Assets published by it. Maintenance and support of such Assets may be provided either on the “best effort” basis or via Community Support. “Best effort” means that ABBYY employee who created such Asset may at his sole discretion do whatever is possible to support Users, but neither he nor ABBYY has any support obligations to fix bugs, add features etc.
  • "ABBYY Partner" means certified ABBYY partners with a proven track record of implementation of the ABBYY Software. ‘ABBYY Partners’ are obliged to provide maintenance and support of their Assets on their own terms.
  • "Individual contributor" means any individual who would like to provide a custom developed Asset to the Marketplace Users. ‘Individual contributors’ are not obliged to maintain and support their Assets if they opted for Community Support.

5.5. ABBYY is not responsible for supporting any Assets created and/or published by Contributors.
