1.1 Your use of Socialbakers’ products, services, content and web sites (referred to collectively as the “Service” or “Services” in this document and excluding any services provided to you or your employees by Socialbakers under a separate written agreement) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Socialbakers (as defined below in Section 18.1) contained in this document and/or any other document expressly referred to herein. The Services are accessed through Socialbakers’ proprietary software application(s) (referred to as the “Software” below) hosted at our web platform at www.socialbakers.com and consist in a single log-in, centralised web dashboard that enables you to access data, metrics and analytics from social profiles on multiple social networks. The Services are provided as “Software as a Service (SaaS)” subscription services and we will not be delivering copies of the Software to you as part of the Services. This document explains how the agreement is made up and sets out some of the terms of that agreement. These terms and conditions will not apply if (i) you or your organization (on whose behalf you act pursuant to Section 2.3 and 18.1) have entered into a separate written agreement with us for the Services, such as, for example, a Socialbakers Binding Order that references other Socialbakers’ terms of Service, or any other written agreement for the provision of our Services, or (ii) you or your organization have purchased the Services through our authorised reseller.
1.2 Unless otherwise agreed in writing with Socialbakers, your agreement with Socialbakers will always include, at a minimum, the terms and conditions set out in this document (the “General Terms”).
1.3 Your agreement with Socialbakers will also include all subscription rates and payment terms applicable to the Services chosen by you (the “Payment Terms”). The Payment Terms, including any related additional terms applicable to your subscription, are published on Socialbakers website or are otherwise made available to you either within, or through your use of, the Service you subscribe to.
1.4 The General Terms, together with the Payment Terms, form a legally binding agreement between you and Socialbakers in relation to your use of the Services. It is important that you take the time to read them carefully. Collectively, this legal agreement is referred to below as the “Terms”.
2.1 In order to use the Services, you must firstly agree to the Terms. You may not use the Services if you do not accept the Terms.
2.2 You can accept the Terms by (A) clicking to accept or agree to the Terms, where this option is made available to you by Socialbakers in the user interface for any Service; (B) by payment for the Services; or (C) by actually using the Services. By performing one of these three options, you understand and agree that Socialbakers will treat your use of the Services as acceptance of the Terms from that point onwards.
2.3 You may not use the Services and may not accept the Terms if (A) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Socialbakers; or (B) when contracting on behalf of an entity, you are not authorized to legally bind your company or organization to such terms; or (C) you are a person or entity barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the Czech Republic or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the Services.
2.4 If you accept the Terms in the user interface for a Service, by making a payment, or by commencing the use of the Service, we recommend that you print off or save a local copy of the Terms for your records before you continue.
2.5 The Services are provided by Socialbakers for consideration. The up-to-date prices applicable to your use of the Services are published on the Services website www.socialbakers.com for configurations of the Services eligible for online purchase and by using the Services at a particular moment you agree to the prices published as of that moment.
2.6 You can pay for the Services either by entering your credit card information, or by any other means as published, from time to time, on the Services website. Alternatively, you can contact us to agree on other methods of payment (such as invoicing). If you sign up for the Services online in the user interface for the Service, you agree that you will be charged periodically by Socialbakers pursuant to the payment conditions specified at checkout. In addition, you expressly acknowledge and agree that the initial price may change if you upgrade or change your subscription plan within the Service. You will always be informed about the price modification prior to making the upgrade or changing your subscription.
2.7 Socialbakers is not responsible for the payment processing provided by any third party.
2.8 The prices exclude any and all applicable taxes and similar fees (other than taxes solely based on Socialbakers’ income) now in force or imposed in the future on provision of the Services, including any sales, use or value added taxes, services tax or withholding tax, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes.
3.1 The Terms are provided in English. If Socialbakers has provided you with a translation of the English language version of the Terms, you agree that the translation is provided only for your convenience, and that the English language versions of the Terms will govern your relationship with Socialbakers.
3.2 If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of the Terms says and what a translation says, then the English language version shall take precedence.
4.1 Socialbakers may have subsidiaries and affiliated legal entities in other countries. At times, these companies or their employees may serve as contact points with respect to the Services provided to you by Socialbakers. Even where Socialbakers’ subsidiaries or affiliates are your primary contact points, Socialbakers as the Services provider will remain ultimately responsible for the provision of Services hereunder.
4.2 Socialbakers is constantly innovating in order to provide the best possible experience for its users. You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services which Socialbakers provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you.
4.3 As part of this continuing innovation, you acknowledge and agree that Socialbakers may permanently or temporarily stop providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally at Socialbakers’ sole discretion, without prior notice to you.
4.4 You understand and agree that Socialbakers may at its full discretion suspend access to your account for (i) delay with any payment (including delay resulting from your failure to provide valid billing details) or (ii) other breach of the Terms if such breach is material, and that in such case you may be prevented from accessing the Services, your account details or any files or other content which is contained in your account. If your access to the Services had been suspended for delayed payment or other (material) breach of the Terms, and subsequently was reactivated (e.g. after the breach had been cured), you still remain obliged to pay the Services fees for the entire subscription term including the period for which you could not access the Services as a result of your default; you will not be entitled to any compensation or refunds (whether monetary or in the form of extra days of Services / extended subscription term) for the period for which you could not use the Services. Such suspension of Service shall not be considered a breach of the Terms by Socialbakers. Further, the foregoing is without prejudice to Socialbakers’ right to terminate the legal agreement embodied in the Terms for material breach pursuant to Section 12.3 of the Terms.
5.1 To access the Services, you or your individual end-users may be required to provide identification, contact or similar details) as part of the registration process for the Service or as part of your continued use of the Services.

5.3 You agree not to access (or attempt to access) any of the Services by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Socialbakers, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate written agreement with Socialbakers.
5.4 You agree that you will not engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services (or the servers and networks which are connected to the Services).

You acknowledge that use of the Services in breach of this Section 5.5 will be considered a material breach of these Terms, with all consequences resulting therefrom.
5.6 You agree that you will not engage in any activity that may amount to the misuse of our Services or that seeks to circumvent the Services’ terms. For example, if Socialbakers provides you with any portion of a Service for free (as part of a trial, pilot or otherwise), you may not engage in data mining or other excessive use of the Service, beyond what is permitted by the free Service (and as advertised for that free Service at the time of the relevant promotion). Socialbakers reserves the right to limit your 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.
5.8 You acknowledge that additional third-party fees (such as internet service provider fee, social media platform fee, fee for boosted or promoted posts, third-party add-on fee or similar) may apply in connection with your use of Socialbakers’ Services.

Further, Socialbakers gives you a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual and non-exclusive right and licence to access and use, reproduce, display, distribute, and create derivative works of, Reports that you generate through your use of the Services.

You agree that this licence shall permit Socialbakers to take these actions.

As a result, when using Socialbakers’ Services, you may be required to grant Socialbakers certain permissions (through a dedicated permission token or a similar permission mechanism) to allow the Services access specific information and perform the requested actions.
11.5 You confirm and warrant to Socialbakers that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the above licence, access and permissions to Socialbakers.
11.6 If any permission granted by you results in Socialbakers obtaining access to a private layer of data available through the respective social media platform, Socialbakers will keep such information confidential at all times, except where legally compelled to disclose the relevant information. Such obligation will not, however, apply to any information that (i) was publicly known and made generally available in the public domain prior to grating the permission to Socialbakers; (ii) becomes publicly known and made generally available after granting the permission to Socialbakers other than as a result of a violation of this Section 11.6 by Socialbakers; (iii) is already in the possession of Socialbakers at the time of granting the permission; (iv) is obtained by Socialbakers from a third party without a breach of the third party’s obligations of confidentiality; or (v) is independently developed by Socialbakers without the use of your confidential information.

In the event you terminate the agreement for a material breach by Socialbakers as described in (A) above, or if Socialbakers ceases to provide any part or all of the Services during the agreement term for reasons stipulated in (C), (D) or (E) above, you shall not be required to make any payments for Services beyond the date of when you terminated the agreement or when Socialbakers ceased to provide the Services (as applicable). In the event you prepaid the Services, Socialbakers shall in such cases refund the pro-rata proportion of the pre-paid monthly fee.
12.4 Nothing in this Section 12 shall affect Socialbakers’ rights regarding provision of Services under Section 4 of the Terms. Nothing in this Section 12 shall affect your early termination rights granted to you under the applicable law.
12.5 If you do not purchase the Services continuously on a monthly “pay as you go” basis, and provided the agreement has not been terminated early either by Socialbakers or you as stipulated in the previous sections, then the following will apply: Your legal agreement with Socialbakers embodied in the Terms shall automatically renew (i.e. be extended, repeatedly) for another term corresponding to your original (preceding) subscription term, unless you or Socialbakers provide notice to the other of (y)our intent to terminate the agreement within the last thirty (30) days before the end of the then current term. You will be notified of the upcoming renewal and may notify Socialbakers of your intention not to renew by unsubscribing from the automatic renewal within the user interface for the Services.
12.6 When your legal agreement with Socialbakers comes to an end, all of the legal rights, obligations and liabilities that you and Socialbakers have benefited from, been subject to (or which have accrued over time whilst your legal agreement with Socialbakers has been in force) and/or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, shall be unaffected by this cessation, and the provisions of Section 18.7 shall continue to apply to such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.
12.7 Further, you understand and agree that the terms and conditions contained in the Terms (including the Payment Terms) will continue to apply to any renewed (extended) term pursuant to Section 12.5 above, as well as to any other continued use of the Services beyond the pre-paid subscription term, as they applied to the original subscription term, and you undertake to pay for the use of the Services by you or your end-users of the Services in accordance with the Payment Terms. You expressly and irrevocably authorise Socialbakers to debit your credit card for the settlement of such Socialbakers’ consideration.
13.1 The Services are provided “as is” and Socialbakers, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its licensors give you no warranty with respect to them. Services features that interoperate with social media networks depend on the continuing availability of those social media network’s APIs, data, application, programs and services for use with the Service. If any social media network ceases to make its APIs, data, application, programs or services available on reasonable terms for the Service, Socialbakers may cease providing such Service features upon reasonable prior written notice to you pursuant to Section 12.3 (C). Socialbakers is not liable or responsible for the quality, accuracy or truthfulness of services or information obtained from social media networks and used within the Services or for interruption of access to such information caused by downtime or unavailability of the social media networks.

13.4 Nothing in the Terms shall affect those statutory rights which you are always entitled to as a consumer and that you cannot contractually agree to alter or waive.
14.1 Nothing in the Terms shall exclude or limit Socialbakers’ liability for losses which may not be lawfully excluded or limited by applicable law.
14.2 TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WHATEVER THE LEGAL BASIS FOR THE CLAIM, SOCIALBAKERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ATTORNEYS’ FEES), DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION) DUE TO, RESULTING FROM, OR ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE TERMS, THE SERVICES, MATERIALS, OR THE FAILURE TO PERFORM OUR OBLIGATIONS.
14.3 Subject to overall provision in Section 14.1 above, Socialbakers, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its licensors shall not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential losses which may be incurred by you. Indirect and consequential losses shall include (A) any loss of profit (whether incurred directly or indirectly), loss of goodwill or business reputation, or any loss of data suffered by you; (B) loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of (i) any reliance placed by you on the completeness, accuracy or existence of any advertising, or as a result of any relationship or transaction between you and any advertiser or sponsor whose advertising appears on the Services; (ii) any changes which Socialbakers may make to the Services, or for any permanent or temporary cessation in the provision of the Services (or any features within the Services); (iii) the deletion of, corruption of, or failure to store, any Content and other communications data maintained or transmitted by or through your use of the Services; (iii) your failure to provide Socialbakers with accurate account information; (iv) your failure to keep your password or account details secure and confidential.

14.5 Socialbakers’ liability for damage incurred by you as a result of or in connection with the Services shall be limited to direct damages up to the amount you paid to Socialbakers for the Services giving rise to that liability during the last three months before the occurrence of Socialbakers’ liability (or amount corresponding to a three-month Service fee, as applicable). 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 the Terms. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Socialbakers accepts no liability in relation to your use of any Services provided free of charge.

18.6 If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of the Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
18.7 The Terms, and your relationship with Socialbakers under the Terms, shall be governed by Czech law. You and Socialbakers agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of the Czech Republic to resolve any legal matters arising from the Terms and the venue of the court of first instance shall be Prague 1 or the Municipal Court in Prague, as applicable. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Socialbakers shall still be allowed to apply (A) for payment orders (or otherwise enforce payment for Services provided under the Terms) in the jurisdiction in which you have your registered seat or principal place of business, and (B) for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
18.8 You are being hereby notified that the Czech Trade Inspection Authority has been the entity ensuring alternative dispute resolution for consumer disputes (ADR). The aim of the ADR scheme is to facilitate an amicable settlement of a dispute and reach agreements for both parties. ADR deals with disputes between consumers and vendors residing or permanently based in any country of the European Union. Consumers can initiate an ADR procedure within the period of 1 year after the first claim is made against the vendor. When initiating an ADR procedure it is necessary to prove that an unsuccessful attempt to resolve the claim was made. The particular dispute shall not be already decided by a court or any other ADR entity. No fee is required within the ADR procedure. ADR is a notified entity of out-of-court resolution of consumer disputes listed by the European Commission. For further details, see the ADR website https://adr.coi.cz/en/info.
This Annex 1 – Data processing agreement shall only apply if Socialbakers provides to you Services or Services’ features within which we only have access to certain personal data because you give us your permission, authorization, token or other mechanism that allows us to access, collect or otherwise process such data, and thereby instruct us to process such personal data on your behalf; for example:
As a data controller with respect to any personal data that you instruct us to process in the context of the Services, you are responsible for the lawfulness of such processing, including the requisite legal titles (consents or other, as may be applicable) for processing. Further, if you instruct Socialbakers to make your data available to, or share your data with, your other service providers, for example by connecting your Socialbakers account with the accounts you have with your other service providers, you remain responsible for implementing the requisite legal measures (such as a data processing agreement between you and your other service provider) for the processing of the data you instruct us to furnish to your other service provider. Socialbakers is not liable for any misprocessing of data that could occur by your provision of the data to Socialbakers or your instruction to Socialbakers to process such data on your behalf.
“CCPA” means the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Civil Code sections 1798.100 et seq.;
“DPA” means the data processing agreement included in this Annex 1;
“GDPR” means the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation);
“Services” means, for the purpose of this Annex 1, all Services Socialbakers provides to you under the Terms as your data processor, as specified in the Preamble of this DPA;
“Terms” means the Terms to which this Annex 1 is appended to.
The terms “personal data”, “processing” and “data subject” shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the GDPR. The term “personal data” includes “personal information” as defined in the CCPA; the term “data subject” includes “consumer” as defined in the CCPA.
The object/scope of this DPA is the processing of personal data in connection with the provision of the Services specified in this DPA, in particular its Exhibit A.
The duration of this DPA shall correspond to the term of your subscription to Socialbakers’ Services.
4.1 The nature and purpose of the intended processing are defined in the Terms and correspond to the provision of the Services defined in this DPA.
4.2 Each and every transfer of personal data beyond the EU / EEA shall only take place if the specific conditions as laid down in Art. 44 et seq. GDPR have been fulfilled. When transferring personal data to a country outside of the EU/EEA, we ensure that our sub-processors are bound by the standard contractual clauses or, in case of US companies, are certified under the Privacy Shield.
4.3 The types of personal data processed under this DPA and categories of data subjects are specified in Exhibit A hereto. The scope of personal data is determined and controlled by you in your sole discretion, and may include, without limitation:
The exact scope of personal data processed will always depend on the specific Service you use.
6.1 We will only erase or block personal data upon instruction issued by you. In case of requests regarding the rectification, restriction or the erasure directly addressed to us by a data subject, we will inform you about such request without undue delay.
6.2 Where appropriate we will assist and support you in fulfilment of your obligations under the GDPR and/or CCPA to respond to requests for exercising the data subject’s right, in particular the ‘right to be forgotten’, rectification, restriction, data portability, information and access rights.
6.3 You hereby agree that Socialbakers shall not be liable if you do not take action on the data subject’s request, or if you do not respond correctly or in a timely manner.
7.1 We undertake to:
8.1 We shall engage another processor (i. e. a sub-processor) only in accordance with this DPA. The mechanism hereby stipulated shall be considered a general written authorisation from you pursuant to Article 28 par. 2 of the GDPR.
8.2 If we engage another processor for carrying out specific processing activities on your behalf, the same obligations as set out in this DPA shall be imposed on that other processor by way of a written contract.
8.4 If you have a reasonable basis to object to our use of another new processor, you shall notify us promptly in writing within 5 days after being notified. For the avoidance of doubt, you hereby agree that if you are not able to show evidence that the new processor provides an unacceptable risk to the protection of personal data (e.g., the other processor has a history of security breaches) or is your direct competitor, it would be unreasonable for you to object if the other processor has passed our vendor security evaluation.
8.5 Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you object to the engagement of another processor and your objection is not unreasonable, the parties will come together in good faith to discuss an appropriate solution. We may in particular choose not to use the intended processor, or engage the processor only after we take the corrective steps and / or measures requested by you.
8.6 Certain components of or add-ons to our Services may allow you to interconnect the direct messaging feature with third-party CRM or help desk tools that you use, and thus help you effectively manage communication with your clients or other persons interacting with you through your social media profiles. If you interconnect the direct messaging or other similar features, the third-party vendor application will have access via APIs to data from Socialbakers Community direct messaging or similar feature. In such cases, the third-party vendors with whom data are shared shall not be considered our sub-processors engaged by us according to this Section 8; the processing of the shared data shall be subject to a separate data processing agreement or a similar contractual arrangement concluded directly between you and your relevant third-party vendor.
9.1 Upon reasonable advance notice of at least 90 days and in order to ensure and review compliance with the technical and organizational security measures and the obligations laid down in this DPA, we shall permit you to conduct periodic audits or to have them carried out by an auditor mandated by you. We shall, at your written request and within a reasonable period of time, submit to you any and all information, documentation and other factual evidence necessary for the audit. The audit result shall be documented appropriately.
9.2 Audits shall be conducted during reasonable times, shall be of reasonable duration, and shall not unreasonably interfere with our day-to-day operations. In the event that you conduct an audit through a third-party independent contractor, such independent contractor shall be required to enter into a non-disclosure agreement. Additionally, such independent contractor must not be our direct or indirect competitor, nor a person who can reasonably be considered by us unfit (from professional, experience and historic reasons) to perform such audit.
10.1 Unless otherwise stipulated herein, the provisions of the Terms shall apply, including any exclusions and limitation of warranties and liabilities provided therein. Provisions in this DPA shall have precedence over any provisions of the Terms relating to the processing of personal data by Socialbakers in the position of a data processor, if any.
