To become a member of SPP you must complete the registration and profile form provided on the SPP Registration Page. The person registering must be at least 18 years old and must have reached the age of majority in the country, state or province of such person’s residence. Each registrant must provide true, accurate and complete information about the registrant and his/her company, as prompted by the registration form (“Registration Data”), and must maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that the Registration Data is untrue, inaccurate or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your membership and refuse any and all current or future access to SPP (or any portion thereof). You acknowledge and agree that we may send you important information and notices regarding your membership and SPP by email. You acknowledge and agree that we shall have no liability associated with, or arising from, your failure to maintain accurate Registration Data, including, but not limited to, your failure to receive critical information about SPP.

Programmes and Eligibility

Additional programmes and incentives may be available to SPP members. Features, services offered, and eligibility requirements may vary depending on region and are subject to modification or cancellation at any time at the discretion of Seagate. Terms and conditions for additional programmes are subject to any existing terms and conditions you may have with Seagate. Eligibility for specific promotions will be determined on a programme-by-programme basis and at Seagate’s sole discretion. Seagate Authorised Distributors or any other party that receives rebates through another Seagate programme may not be eligible. End users are not eligible.

All features, programmes and services offered through SPP are provided to members for the purpose of promoting Seagate products and fostering product growth; accordingly, such features, programmes and services, and any information and material offered in connection therewith, should only be used to promote Seagate products.   Additional terms, conditions and restrictions may apply to all features, programmes and services.

Termination

We reserve the right to terminate your membership or your participation in all or some of the programmes or services of SPP for any reason without notification. We may, at our sole discretion and at any time, modify or terminate SPP or any programmes or services offered through SPP.

Intellectual Property

All right, title and interest in and to any intellectual property, proprietary rights or other rights related to intangible property which are used, developed, comprising, embodied in or practised in connection with SPP (“Seagate Intellectual Property Rights”) are owned by Seagate Technology LLC, its parent, subsidiaries or one of its affiliated companies (collectively, “Seagate Entities”), or its licensors, and you agree to make no claim of interest in or ownership of any such Seagate Intellectual Property Rights. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that the trademarks, logos and service marks, whether registered or unregistered (collectively, the “Trademarks”) used in connection with SPP, including “Seagate”, “Seagate Technology” and “Seagate Partner Program”, are Trademarks of Seagate Entities or third parties. Nothing referenced in or obtained through SPP should be construed as granting by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any licence or right to use any such Trademarks without our written consent and/or the consent of such third party that owns the Trademarks.

NO WARRANTIES

THE INFORMATION, MATERIAL AND SERVICES PROVIDED THROUGH SPP ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS, AND THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS IS WITH THE USERS. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, THAT ANY INFORMATION, MATERIAL OR SERVICE PROVIDED THROUGH SPP IS MERCHANTABLE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE OR ERROR-FREE, THAT SUCH INFORMATION, MATERIAL OR SERVICE WILL FULFIL ANY OF YOUR PARTICULAR PURPOSES OR NEEDS, OR THAT SUCH INFORMATION, MATERIAL OR SERVICE DOES NOT INFRINGE ON ANY THIRD PARTY RIGHTS. WE ASSUME NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS RELATING TO ANY INFORMATION, MATERIAL OR SERVICE PROVIDED THROUGH SPP.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, NEITHER SEAGATE NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING OR DELIVERING SPP WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS OR LOST OPPORTUNITY), HOWEVER CAUSED, ARISING OUT OF YOUR PARTICIPATION IN SPP OR YOUR USE OF, OR RELIANCE ON, ANY INFORMATION, MATERIAL OR SERVICES PROVIDED THROUGH SPP, EVEN IF SEAGATE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Release of Liability

You agree to release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless the Seagate Entities and their advertising and promotions agencies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, contractors and agents from and against any claims, damages, expenses and liability arising from or related to any injuries, damages or losses to any person (including death) or property of any kind resulting in whole or part, directly or indirectly, from your participation in SPP or using any features or services offered through SPP.

Governing Law/Dispute Resolution

SPP is maintained, controlled, operated and administered by Seagate from within the United States of America (USA).   Participation in SPP (or in any programme or service offered through SPP) from countries where such participation is illegal is prohibited. If you participate in SPP from a location outside the USA, you are responsible for compliance with all local laws and USA export control laws. These terms and your participation in SPP are governed by the laws of the USA and the State of California, without regard to conflict of laws rules. Seagate will consider any claim or dispute regarding the application of these terms in good faith, but its determination in any such case is final, absent manifest error or bad faith. This being said, any dispute arising out of these terms will be submitted to mediation before an agreed mediator from Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) or its successor at a JAMS facility in Santa Clara County, California, USA, to whose jurisdiction the parties consent.

General

Any failure by us to enforce any of our rights under these terms or applicable laws shall not constitute a waiver of such right. If any provision of these terms is found to be invalid, you and we shall endeavour to give effect to the intent reflected in that provision, and the remaining terms shall retain their full force and effect.

You agree to follow and comply with any applicable laws in your participation in SPP.
