“yourself”. All references to “we”, “us”, “our”, “this website” or “this site”
shall be construed to mean this com, valuebuilder.com website and
3. Subscription Period. Your subscription commences on the day on which the initial charge appears on your credit card, unless otherwise agreed in writing, and continues for a period of one year (the “Initial Term”). At the end of the Initial Term and each Renewal Term (as defined below), your subscription shall automatically continue, subject to the provisions below, for successive periods of ninety (90) days (each a “Renewal Term”), provided you continue to pay the Subscription Fees. Together, the Initial Term and all Renewal Terms shall be the “Term”. You may choose to terminate your subscription as further detailed below. You’ll still need to pay all relevant Subscription Fees up to and including the day of termination.
4.Pricing, Payment Terms and Taxes. You need to pay for a subscription based on the pricing as detailed in the Order Form, which explains the pricing details and other terms of your subscription. Your use of our Services requires you to pay a monthly fee based on your subscription type (the “Subscription Fee“) which shall be automatically charged to your credit card, debited from your bank account, or paid via other methods based on our applicable billing frequency. The terms of the pricing plan form part of these terms. We may occasionally update or amend the pricing plan, but such changes won’t apply retrospectively and, if we make changes and you’re a Subscriber, we’ll make every effort to let you know. Depending on your region, transactional taxes like HST, VAT and other similar taxes may apply in addition to Subscription Fees unless otherwise indicated. In the event of any payment default during the Initial Term, the monetary balance of your subscription for the Initial Term will be accelerated and will become immediately due and payable in full. All invoices must be paid within fifteen (+15) days of the date on which they are sent to you, failing which you shall pay us on demand as a genuine estimate of liquidated damages (the parties acknowledging that the actual amount thereof is incapable of precise determination), the sum of $100.00 for each outstanding invoice per month, the whole without prejudice to any of our other rights and recourses.
5. Discounts. We may offer at our discretion from time to time promotion that may include reduced fees for Services conditioned upon your membership in a particular organization (“Partner”). You agree that we are entitled to request from you or the Partner reasonable proof of your membership in the Partner organization as a prerequisite of providing you any Services at promotional rates, and to request from time to time proof of your continued membership in order to continue such promotional rates. Failure to provide proof of membership in a Partner organization upon our request will result in the imposition of regular fees for Services retroactive to the last date as to which proof of membership was provided.
7. Modification of Services. We reserve the right to occasionally modify the Services. Generally, we will endeavor to provide you with 30 days’ notice of material modifications they become effective, unless we need to make immediate changes for reasons we don’t have control over. Certain other new functionality may be offered in the future for an additional fee, and if you elect to purchase any of this new functionality it will be deemed to be part of the Services.
8. Right to Use Our Services. Whether you’re a Subscriber or an Authorized User, and subject to these terms, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use our Services (based on your subscription type, your user role and the level of access you’ve been granted) for as long as the Subscriber continues to pay for the subscription, until the subscription is terminated, or – if you’re an Authorized User – until your access is revoked (“Authorized Use”).

We will not tolerate any abuse or bullying of our employees in any situation and that includes interaction with our customer support or customer success teams.
10. Your Access to the Services and Your Confidential Information.
a. Individual Subscribers are required to register as the initial Administrator and an Authorized User.
b. The initial Administrator shall register and designate himself/herself as the initial administrator. The initial Administrator shall be the overall administrator of the subscription and is authorized to appoint additional Administrators and Authorized Users.

c. Administrators shall provide each Authorized User with a unique email address, login ID and password (“Username”) which is not transferable to any other user, including Authorized Users.

e. Administrators shall have access to all contact information and reports associated with the subscriptions.

i. These terms shall apply to all use of the Services via an API or third-party product, including without limitation all limitations of liability provided herein.
ii. Excessive use of the Services via an API or third-party product may result in a diminution of the Services. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to suspend or terminate use of the Services via an API or third-party product.
g. Subscribers that are organizations or entities (non-individuals), cannot split a subscription among multiple users. Each user must be an Authorized User and the Subscription Fees will vary based on the number of Authorized Users as further detailed in the Order Form. All Authorized Users under an organization’s or entity’s subscription must be employed by or contracted to the same legal entity.
h. You agree not to make any former Authorized User an Authorized User hereunder during the Term and for a period of twelve (12) months thereafter without our permission which we can withhold for any reason.
i. The Subscriber is responsible for all the activity of each Authorized User.
j. We strive to maintain the availability of our Services and provide support. On occasion, we need to perform maintenance on our services, and this may require a period of downtime. We try to minimize any such downtime. Where planned maintenance is being undertaken, we’ll attempt to notify you in advance but can’t guarantee it. You know how the internet works – occasionally you might not be able to access our services and your data. This might happen for any number of reasons, at any time.
k. You promise that you’ll keep your information (including a current email address) up to date. You’re responsible for providing true, accurate and complete information and for verifying the accuracy of any information that you use from our services for your legal, tax and compliance obligations. You’re also responsible for protecting your Username and password from getting stolen or misused. We have minimum password standards, but you will ensure that passwords are very strong and not easily guessable – the stronger the password the better!
l. You will not market, sell or re-sell any part of your subscription to another individual or entity or to bundle it with any services you provide to others without our written consent
11. Security. We take security seriously and you should too!
a. Security safeguards: We’ve invested in certain safeguards to do our part to help keep your data safe and secure. While we’ve taken steps to help protect your data, no method of electronic storage is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee absolute security. We will notify you if there appears to be unauthorized access to your account and we may also restrict access to certain parts of our Services until you verify that access was by an authorized user.
b. Account security features: We may introduce security features to make your account more secure. Depending on where you are in the world or what Services you’re using, we may require you to adopt some of these features. Where we make the use of security features optional, you’re responsible (meaning we’re not liable) for any consequences of not using those features. We strongly encourage you to use all optional security features.
c. Playing your part to secure your data: You have an important part to play by keeping your login details secure, not letting any other person use them, and by making sure you have strong security on your own systems. If you realize there has been any unauthorized use of your password or any breach of security to your account or email address linked to your account, you must let us know immediately.
12. Confidential Information. While using the
Services, and only for the purposes contemplated here, you may share
Confidential Information with us, and you may become aware of confidential
information about us. You and we both agree to take reasonable steps to protect
the other party’s confidential information from being accessed by unauthorized individuals.
You or we may share each other’s confidential information with legal or
regulatory authorities if required to do so. In our case, we claim as “Confidential
Information” the nonpublic marketing and sales and subscriber information,
algorithms, logic, design, and coding methodology embodied in the Services, our
website, and all software and technology we use to provide the Services as well
as any reports produced including any “The Value Builder Score™” report(s).
13. Discussions and Postings and Content.
a. On The Value Builder System™ Facebook & LinkedIn Groups, you can participate in discussions about our Services. Only share private information if you’re happy for others to know it, and don’t post anything you don’t have the right to share. Full rules for each group are available on their respective pages.
b. You retain all rights and ownership to your Content. We make no claim of ownership to your Content; however, we do need certain rights (a license) to use your Content to enable our Services. If you upload or submit your Content, you grant to us and any of our affiliated entities a worldwide, non-exclusive, irrevocable, and perpetual right and license (i) to use, reproduce, modify, and create derivative works based on your Content, and (ii) to host, publish, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform your Content and derivative works in all methods and means of distribution and publication, now known or hereafter developed. This license granted by you is only for purposes of marketing, promoting, or improving our Services.
14. Termination; CANCELLATION.
a. You or we can terminate your subscription with three (3) months’ written notice following the Initial Term. If you violate these terms in any way or if you become insolvent, your business goes into liquidation or has a receiver or manager appointed over any of its assets, or you become subject to any similar insolvency event in any jurisdiction, we may terminate your subscription immediately and/or suspend access to your subscription or data. There will be no refunds of Subscription Fees or any other prepaid amounts upon termination by either of us.
b. Once a subscription is terminated by you or us, it is archived, and the data submitted or created by you is no longer available to you. In any event, we reserve the right (but do not have the obligation) to irrevocably delete all of your data and any contact information beginning thirty (30) days after your subscription ceases for any reason, without any further notice or obligation to you.
c. Upon expiry or termination for any reason of your subscription, you will be required to remove all references to The Sellability Score, Certified Value Builder™ and The Value Builder System™ from all your marketing materials (g. company literature, website, etc.) You will also lose your status as a Certified Value Builder™ and will be required to remove the “Certified Value Builder™” designation from your professional email signatures, business cards and profiles (including on LinkedIn, etc.).
15. Training. As part of your subscription, each Subscriber
(and, in cases where the Subscriber is an entity or organization with multiple
Authorized Users, at least one Authorized User) must first earn the Certified
Value Builder™ designation (additional cost applies per Order Form) to offer
the Value Builder Engagements. To earn this designation, an individual must
complete the Value Builder online (e-learning) course and attend one of our
virtual or in-person Certified Value Builder™ courses. A Certified Value
Builder™ designation is only valid if a subscription is in effect and shall immediately
terminate upon its expiry or termination for any reason. Each Subscriber (and,
in cases where the Subscriber is an entity or organization with multiple
Authorized Users, at least one Authorized User) may choose to receive a
Certified Value Builder™ designation as part of our SmartStart program. This
program includes the Value Builder online course, Certified Value Builder™
training, RocketLaunch and CoachMasters. The SmartStart program is not
transferable between Authorized Users or among other members within an
organization. You must always have a minimum of one Authorized User with a
valid subscription that has completed, or is enrolled in, the SmartStart
program. All courses included in the SmartStart program must be completed
within 12 months of registration. Our SmartStart guarantee is as follows: if
you successfully complete the SmartStart program and are not satisfied, we will
credit your account with 100% of your SmartStart investment. To qualify for
this guarantee, you must have: (i) a current valid subscription; (ii)
successfully completed the SmartStart program by attending, completing, and
providing feedback on all of the above-referenced courses within 12 months of
becoming a Subscriber; (iii) participated in regular meetings with your

training programs for any reason whatsoever.
16. Technical Support and Consulting Services. During the Term, we will provide technical product support in the form of responses to questions by email or telephone at no additional charge. If additional services are required for the proper use and operation of the Services or if additional optional training or consulting services are requested, we will provide such services on a time and materials (“T&M”) basis; that is, (i) you will pay us for all the time spent performing such services (including all travel time), plus materials, taxes, and reimbursable expenses; and (ii) the rates for such services shall be our then-current standard rates when such services are provided. Any monetary limit stated in an estimate for T&M services shall be an estimate only for your budgeting and our resource scheduling purposes.

Once anonymized, we may use it for our own purposes, such as to provide and improve our services, to develop new services or product offerings, to identify business trends, and for other uses we communicate to you.
d. Data breach notifications: Where we think there has been unauthorized access to personal data inside your subscription, we’ll let you know and give you information about what has happened. Depending on the nature of the unauthorized access, and the location of your affected contacts, you may be required to assess whether the unauthorized access must be reported to the contact and/or a relevant authority. We think you’re best placed to make this decision, because you’ll have the most knowledge about the personal data stored in your subscription.
18. Intellectual Property Ownership. We own everything
we’ve put into our Services unless otherwise stated and excluding content owned
by others. This includes rights in the design, compilation, and look and feel
of our services including our websites, all content, training materials,
software and software code and technology and reports, including “Value Builder

designs, inventions, and other intellectual property. You agree not to copy,
distribute, modify, or make derivative works of any of our content or use any
of our intellectual property rights in any way not expressly permitted by us.
We also own the rights to any websites/domain names/links we temporarily
provide to Subscribers while they are subscribers. For greater certainty, once
your subscription ceases, you retain no rights to use any such websites/domain
names/links, nor do you have any rights relating to any leads generated from
them. In addition, we may occasionally and in our sole discretion provide you
with sales leads. We may at any time, whether you are then a Subscriber or
whether your subscription has ceased for any reason, reassign any such lead(s)
to any other subscriber without any compensation or obligation to you
whatsoever. We also own all user data collected from The Value Builder System™
and your use of the Services. No part or derivation of The Value Builder

professional profile, you must have an active subscription. We are not required
to delete any information relating to anyone that interacts with us to obtain
his/her/its Value Builder Score once your subscription ceases. You will not
sell, share, or refer any sales leads we have provided to you without our
written permission. If a contact that you add into our system does not interact
with us (whether to obtain a Value Builder Score or otherwise), that contact
and any of the data it provides remains your sales lead and upon your written
request (to be made within fifteen (15) days of the date on which your
subscription ceases), we will delete this contact’s information.
19. Compliance with Applicable Law. You agree you will always comply with all Applicable Law. You may not use the Services in any way, including directly or indirectly, to send, transmit, handle, distribute or deliver unsolicited email in violation of Applicable Law, including but not limited to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL), Australia’s Spam Act 2003, the USA’s CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, or any other Applicable Law. You further represent and warrant that any contact information referred to in the section “Intellectual Property Ownership” above has been obtained lawfully and with all required consents and has not, for example, been obtained via any surreptitious methods (g. scraping or harvesting). Different laws may apply in different countries that restrict our relationship with you. We may block your access, terminate your subscription, or refuse to process a payment if we reasonably believe there’s a risk – like a potential breach of Applicable Law – associated with you, your company, your subscription, or a payment. Examples of where we might do this include transactions where the payment is from a sanctioned person or country; or where we reasonably believe there is a legal or regulatory risk or a risk of loss being suffered by us or our customers or partners. You promise that you’re not located in a sanctioned country and are not on a sanctioned persons list. We may also block users from a country if we can’t receive payments from that country.
