IX ENGAGE TERMS OF SERVICE
These iX Engage Terms of Service (“Terms”) describe your rights and responsibilities as a customer of our iX Engage Products. If you are being invited or added to an iX Engage Product set up by a iX.co customer, the iX.co customer’s end user terms govern your access and use of the iX Engage Products (and not these Terms). These Terms are between you and Infront X, LLC (“iX.co”, “we” or “us”). As used in these Terms “you” means the entity you represent in accepting these Terms or, if that does not apply, you individually, as indicated in a signed Order Form for any of the iX Engage Products (“Order Form”), where an Order Form is available. If you do not have the authority to bind the entity you represent, please do not click “I agree” (or similar button or checkbox) that is presented to you. In the absence of an Order Form with an entity named as a party on whose behalf you represent, if you sign up for an iX.co Engage Product using an email address from an entity, then (a) you will be deemed to represent such entity, (b) your click to accept will bind that entity to these terms, and (c) the word “you” in these Terms will refer to that entity.
These Terms are effective as of (i) the date you first click “I agree” (or similar button or checkbox), (ii) the License Term in the applicable Order Form, or (iii) your use or access of an iX Engage Product, whichever is the earliest (“Effective Date”).
Please note, that these Terms do not have to be signed in order to be binding. You indicate your agreement to these Terms by clicking “I agree” (or similar button or checkbox), by accessing or using an iX.co Engage Product, or by signing an Order Form.

The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know, provided that they are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Disclosing Party than this Section 12 and that the Receiving Party remains responsible for compliance by them with the terms of this Section 12. The Receiving Party’s confidentiality obligations will not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving party who had no access to such information.
