Capitalized terms that are defined in these Terms, such as “Software” or “Customer,” have the specific definitions given to them whenever they are used in these Terms. When used in this Agreement the term “Software” includes all user manuals and other documentation offered by Tightrope in any form.
These Terms are also subject to all terms and conditions found within the following additional agreements (the “Additional Agreements”), all of which are accessible via links on Tightrope’s Carousel website (the “Website”):
You expressly acknowledge and agree that if you use (or instruct, permit, or enable any employees, contractors, partners, or customers of the entity that you represent to use), the Software to display, store, maintain or disseminate, send, host, transfer, or otherwise process or use the personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) of any user of the Software or third party, then such activities shall be subject to the Data Processing Addendum.

Such Customers will be required to electronically sign or affirmatively accept the SCC during the Software subscription process.
By accessing and using the Software, and accepting these Terms, you agree to be legally bound by all terms and conditions of the Additional Agreements. The Additional Agreements are incorporated into and made part of these Terms by reference.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND THE ADDITIONAL AGREEMENTS, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE THE SOFTWARE.
Tightrope provides subscription licenses to the Software directly to its customers and indirectly through its authorized distributors and dealers (a “Distributor”). These Terms govern all direct and indirect subscription licenses. Tightrope provides Software support and maintenance terms under these Terms. Carousel training, creative design services, and certain other Tightrope services (the “Services”) are provided subject to the separate Tightrope General Services Terms available online.
If Customer obtains its license from a Distributor, then the subscription, pricing, payment, and taxes terms agreed upon with such Distributor shall take precedence over these Terms.
Tightrope provides the Carousel Cloud Software to its Customers and their authorized Users for a subscription term. Carousel Cloud subscriptions are subject to renewal and cancellation as provided by these Terms. References to “Customer” or “Customers” in these Terms shall include Users as required by the context.
Customer is required to affirmatively accept these Terms and the Additional Agreements upon the initial account registration. All Users must also accept these Terms and the Additional Agreements as a condition of their access to and use of the Software.
These Terms will continue in force and effect for the full term of Customer’s Software subscription. Tightrope reserves the right to change these Terms at any time in its sole business discretion. Tightrope will make reasonable efforts to notify Customers of changes to the Terms via the Software interface or other electronic means. The revised Terms will become eﬀective when posted to the Software interface or, if we provide you a click-through or other means of accepting the Terms, upon your acceptance. By continuing to use the Software after the revised Terms become eﬀective, you agree to be bound by the Terms and the additional agreements in all respects.
All Customers must have an account to use the Software (a “Customer Account”). Customers establish a Customer Account by completing the online registration process. In some instances, Tightrope may set up a Customer Account for the Customer. Customers are responsible for assuring that their Users abide by these Terms and the Additional Agreements.
All Users must have an individual user account to access and use the Software. Each User must have a username, password, and such other login or account credentials as Tightrope may reasonably require to maintain and operate the Software. The login and account credentials will include Personal Information.

Tightrope may offer the Carousel Cloud Software to a Customer for an initial trial or proof of concept period (a “Software Trial”). These Terms and Additional Agreements govern all Software Trials except as expressly modified by this section. Customers may cancel a Software Trial at any time during the trial period without additional liability to Tightrope. If Customer cancels, Tightrope will not refund any Software Trial subscription fees that were paid in advance. TIGHTROPE WILL HAVE NO MONETARY LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY CLAIMS ARISING UNDER OR RELATING TO A SOFTWARE TRIAL, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHER LEGAL BASIS.
At the start of the Carousel Cloud Software subscription term, Customer will be charged fees for the subscription plan chosen during the account registration process. Fees vary according to the subscription term, the number of digital signage players that the Customer is authorized to use, and other options. A “player” is the application software that displays content on an individual monitor or display device (hereafter, a “Player”). The number of authorized Players licensed will depend on the pricing plan chosen by Customer. The Player application software is installed on individual electronic devices. Tightrope provides the Player subject to the Carousel Player License Agreement, one of the Additional Agreements defined above. The Carousel Player License Agreement must be accepted separately by the User during installation of the Player. When used in this Agreement, the term “Software” does not include the
Player. Monthly Carousel Cloud subscriptions renew automatically on a monthly basis unless cancelled by Customer before the monthly renewal date. Annual subscriptions automatically renew for an additional 1-year term unless Customer notifies Tightrope of its election to terminate the subscription at least 90 days prior to expiration. Monthly subscription fees for Carousel Cloud are payable in advance. Annual subscription fees are due at the start of the annual term. All invoices to Customers are payable upon receipt. Tightrope only accepts credit card payments for monthly subscriptions. Annual subscriptions may be paid by credit card, an ACH payment, or other payment form acceptable to Tightrope. All payments shall be made in U.S. Dollars. Customers shall provide Tightrope with that credit card, debit card, or other payment information as required by Tightrope (the “Payment Information”) to receive all fees and taxes due from you. You hereby authorize Tightrope to use your Payment Information to collect fees from you in the amounts provided by your subscription plan.
Monthly subscriptions for Carousel Cloud may be cancelled at any time upon notice to Tightrope. The subscription will terminate at the next renewal date after the notice is given. The Customer will have access to the Software through the next renewal date, and no refund of the monthly fees will be paid. Annual subscriptions for Carousel Cloud may be cancelled at any time upon 90 days’ notice to Tightrope. Refunds are paid for the unused portion of the annual subscription prorated to the termination date. The cancellation of multi-year Carousel Cloud subscriptions is subject to 90 days’ notice to Tightrope and require payment of an early termination fee equal to 6 months of subscription fees. Refunds are paid for the unused portion of the subscription prorated to the termination date, minus the early termination fee.
Any fee changes occurring prior to the expiration of a subscription term will be effective upon renewal of the subscription. Otherwise, Tightrope may change its fees at any time, effective immediately upon posting to the Website.
Any sales, use, value-added, excise, or other taxes which Tightrope is required to collect from Customer pursuant to applicable law will be in addition to all fees charged for the Software.
The subscription fees charged by Tightrope are based on the reasonable and ordinary costs of hosting, maintaining, and operating the Software for reasonable and ordinary business use, including storage and bandwidth costs.
