  1. Acceptance

Welcome to the Program Works Beta User Agreement. This is an agreement (“Agreement”) between Program Works, Inc. (“Program Works”), the owner and operator of Workschedule.Net and the Program Works proprietary, non-commercially available hosted software applications, application programming interfaces, services, features and/or functionalities that are currently being offered to you in “Beta” form or services otherwise labeled as WorkSchedule.Net v9 (collectively the “Beta Service(s)”) and you (“you”, “your”, or “Beta User”), a Beta User of the Beta Service.    Throughout this Agreement, the words “Program Works,”  “us,”  “we,” or “our,” refer to our company as is appropriate in the context of the use of the words.    By clicking “I agree”, accessing, or using the Beta Service you agree to be bound by the Beta User Agreement.  We may amend this Agreement and may notify you when we do so. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION PROVISIONS THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.  If you do not agree to the Agreement or the Privacy Policy please cease using our Beta Service immediately.

  1. Use of Beta Services

Beta User is being granted rights under this Agreement for the purpose of testing and providing input and other Feedback (defined below) to Program Works regarding one or more of Program Works’ Beta Services. This Agreement covers all Beta Services made available to Beta User by Program Works, including, without limitation, any Beta Services specifically identified by Program Works as being in “Beta” or any similar stage of development but also any other services made available to Beta User.  For Subscribers (defined below) any services that Subscriber is currently subscribed to shall be excluded from the definition of Beta Services. Program Works retains sole and absolute discretion as to what, if any, Beta Services will be made available to Beta User during the Term. While Beta User is not required to utilize or enable any Beta Services, if Beta User elects to do so, then Beta User’s use of and access to any such Beta Services shall be subject to the terms of this Agreement.

  1. Eligibility

 

Program Works retains the sole discretion in determining whether a Beta User is eligible to use the Beta Services.  Some Beta Users of the Beta Services may be current subscribers (“Subscribers”) to other Program Works offered services.  Subscribers must continue to keep their current subscription paid, up to date, and continue to comply with the terms (“Terms”) of their subscription (found at: workschedule.net/terms) as an ongoing condition to using the Beta Services.  Subscribers may not cancel their current subscription and sign up for a free Beta User account and Program Works reserves the right to reject any Beta Users at its discretion.  Where any Terms directly conflict with this Agreement, this Agreement shall control and supersede.

 

  1. License and Access

 

For the term of the Agreement, Program Works grants to Beta User a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable right to access and use the Beta Service(s) in connection with an Existing Account to test its functionality and provide Feedback to Program Works. Program Works hosts and retains physical control over the Beta Service(s) and only makes the Beta Service(s) available for access and use by Beta User over the Internet through a Web-browser or mobile device. Nothing in this Agreement obligates Program Works to deliver or make available any copies of computer programs or code from the Beta Service(s) to Beta User, whether in object code or source code form. Program Works reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to revoke access and use of the Beta Services at any time. Further, Program Works reserves the right to enter or use Beta User’s account for the purposes of (i) monitoring or measuring use of the Beta Service(s); (ii) validating certain features or functionality of the Beta Service(s); and (iii) providing services or support necessary to maintain the Beta Service(s).

 

  1. Use Restrictions

 

Beta User may not rent, lease, distribute, or resell the Beta Service(s), or use the Beta Service(s) as the basis for developing a competitive solution (or contract with a third party to do so), or remove or alter any of the logos, trademark, patent or copyright notices, confidentiality or proprietary legends or other notices or markings that are on or in the Beta Service(s).  Program Works reserves the right to limit the functionality or any usage of the Beta Services at its discretion for any of its Beta Users. Program Works reserves the right to delete, remove, modify, change, increase or decrease any usage or functionality found within the Beta Services, at its discretion. For the avoidance of doubt any Subscribers using the Beta Services shall not be able to use the Beta Services in excess of any limits that have been placed on Subscriber’s use of the other Program Works services. Nothing in this Agreement obligates Program Works to make available the Beta Services to any Beta Users.

 

  1. Feedback

 

Upon reasonable request by Program Works, Beta User agrees to provide suggestions, enhancement requests, and recommendations (individually and collectively, “Feedback”) regarding the Beta Service(s). Feedback shall include informing Program Works about the performance, ease of use, features that may be missing, and any bugs encountered during the use of the Beta Service(s). Program Works may contact Beta User and Beta User agrees to make available a reasonable amount of time to discuss the Beta Service(s) with Program Works if so requested. Program Works may without restriction or fee use, modify and incorporate this Feedback into the Beta Service(s) and other Program Works services without any restriction and without any payment.  Beta User agrees that all right, title, and interest in any Feedback provided is owned solely by Program Works.

 

  1. Intellectual Property

 

The parties acknowledge that this Agreement does not transfer any right, title or interest in any intellectual property right to the other. Program Works maintains all rights, title and interest in and to all its patents, inventions, copyrights, trademarks, domain names, trade secrets, know-how and any other intellectual property and/or proprietary rights (collectively “Intellectual Property Rights”). The limited rights granted to Beta User to access and use the Beta Service(s) under this Agreement do not convey any additional rights in the Beta Service(s), or in or to any Intellectual Property Rights associated therewith. Subject only to the limited rights to access and use the Beta Service(s) as expressly provided herein, all rights, title and interest in and to the Beta Service(s) and all hardware, software and other components of or used to provide the Beta Service(s), including all related Intellectual Property Rights, will remain with and belong exclusively to Program Works.

During the term of this Agreement or following the termination or expiration of this Agreement, Program Works is not obligated to store, maintain or provide a copy of any content, data or other information that Beta User has provided or uploaded to the Beta Service by Beta User or its Authorized users.  Upon expiration of this Agreement Beta User may be required to enter into a separate agreement if it desires to continue using any Beta Services or any other services offered by Program Works.  Beta User’s obligations under this Agreement shall terminate upon termination of this Agreement; provided that the foregoing shall not limit Program Works’s rights pursuant to Section 6 as related to any Feedback provided before or after such termination.

Beta User represents and warrants it has all title, right, and interest in the Beta User Data and that all Beta User Data is compliant with all laws and regulations of Beta User’s jurisdiction.

  1. Confidential Information

 

Beta User acknowledges and agrees that participation in the Beta testing under this Agreement will result in Program Works disclosing certain confidential, proprietary and/or trade secret information related to the Beta Services and/or Program Works (the “Confidential Information”).
