Socialbakers reserves the right to limit the customer’s activity on any of its free Services for any reason and without notice.
5.7. You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Socialbakers has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under the Terms and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which Socialbakers may suffer) of any such breach.

7.5. You agree that Socialbakers may contact you in the future regarding their Services.
7.6. To the extent you are a data controller (within the meaning of the Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data) with respect to any personal data that you provide us in connection with the Services (if any), you (A) instruct us to process such data for the purpose of providing the Services to you and informing you about Socialbakers’ Services and their features; this may include troubleshooting aimed at preventing, detecting and repairing problems affecting the operation of the Services and the improvement of features that involve the detection of, and protection against, emerging and evolving threats to the user (such as malware or spam); and (B) authorize us to use such data for the purposes and in the scope described in Section 7.1 through 7.5 above. Socialbakers has implemented and will maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures, internal controls, and information security routines in accordance with good industry practice and having regard to the state of technological development to protect your data against accidental loss, destruction, or alteration; unauthorized disclosure or access (including but not limited to taking reasonable steps to ensure the reliability of employees having access to your data and providing for limited access rights and access controls; authentication; personnel training; regular back up; data recovery and incident management procedures; restrictions on storing, printing and disposal of personal data; software protection of devices on which personal data are stored; etc.); or unlawful destruction. Upon request, Socialbakers will provide further details about the measures implemented by Socialbakers and its data service providers. Data collected from you may be transferred to, and stored and processed in, the United States or any other country in which Socialbakers or its Affiliates or subcontractors maintain facilities. Socialbakers will procure that if its subcontractors are located in the USA or other country outside the EU or EEA (A) they will, during the term of processing, be and remain certified under the EU and Swiss Safe Harbor programs as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the EU, the EEA, and Switzerland so long as they are maintained by the United States government; or (B) Socialbakers will implement other appropriate legal mechanism to ensure an adequate level of personal data protection by such subcontractors. Socialbakers represents that its current third party data service (hosting) provider, Amazon.com, Inc., 410 Terry Avenue, Seattle, WA 98109, and its controlled U.S. subsidiary providing the service, Amazon Web Services, Inc., has participated in the EU and Swiss Safe Harbor framework since 2003.
7.7. By providing any data (including personal data) to Socialbakers while using the Services, you declare that you have all necessary consents, permissions or registrations to process the provided data in this way. Socialbakers is not liable for any misprocessing of data that could occur by your provision of the data to Socialbakers.
7.8. You acknowledge that apart from any personal data collected from you Socialbakers may process and utilize any personal data concerning you (or your users if you are an entity) or any third party that you, your users or any such third party have chosen to make public, e.g. through Facebook or other social network APIs. The use of such publicly available data is typically governed by the terms applicable to the service or network through which the data were made publicly available and such data may typically be used, accessed by and shared with third parties.
7.9. You agree that Socialbakers may use aggregated and anonymised data derived from the data provided by you or collected by the program analytics in its own statistics, for auditing, for the purposes of product and market research and analytics (which help Socialbakers to improve its products and the range of products and to develop new technologies, products and services), for benchmarks and other analyses, and to publish and share them with third parties outside of Socialbakers. Socialbakers will not directly or indirectly transfer any data received from you to (or use such data in connection with) any ad network, ad exchange, data broker, or other advertising or monetization related toolset.
8.1. You understand that all information such as, without limitation, data files, written text, computer software, music, audio files or other sounds, photographs, and videos or other images (all such information being hereinafter referred to as the “Content”) which you may have access to as part of, or through your use of, the Services are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated.
8.2. You should be aware that Content presented to you as part of the Services, including but not limited to advertisements in the Services and sponsored Content within the Services (if any), may be protected by intellectual property rights owned by the sponsors or advertisers who provide such Content to Socialbakers (or by other persons or companies on their behalf), and that the Content may include sensitive personal data.

You further acknowledge that the Services may contain information which is designated confidential by Socialbakers and that you shall not disclose such information without Socialbakers' prior written consent.
9.2. Unless you have agreed otherwise in writing with Socialbakers, nothing in the Terms gives you a right to use any of Socialbakers' trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names and any other distinctive brand features.

The licence granted in this Section 11.1 is for the sole purpose of enabling Socialbakers to display, distribute and promote the Services to you.
11.2. If you provide, as part of your use of Socialbakers’ Services or as part of the Content which you submit, post or display on or through the Services, any photograph or other materials protected by personality or privacy rights, you specifically agree that Socialbakers may use such photograph or other materials for the sole purposes of providing the Services.
11.3.

Socialbakers and you agree that this limitation reflects the damage that can be foreseen at the time of conclusion of this legal agreement between you and Socialbakers, taking into account all circumstances the parties know or should know while exercising due care and that can arise from a breach of Socialbakers’ obligations under these Terms.

18.3. The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Socialbakers and govern your use of the Services (excluding any services which Socialbakers may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Socialbakers in relation to the Services.

18.5. The parties agree that if one of them does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which such party has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of such party’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to it.
18.6. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms.
