The Customer and Users may access and use the Service in accordance with the Agreement.

This Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between the Customer, on the one hand, and NEWZIK, on the other hand. To the extent that NEWZIK, on behalf of the Customer, is processing Customer Data that is subject to EU Data Protection Laws, by accepting this Agreement, the Customer is also agreeing to the Data Processing Agreement and EU Standard Contractual Clauses (annex 1 of the present Agreement), with NEWZIK for the transfer of personal data to processors. 

 

If you are agreeing to this Agreement and, if applicable, the Data Processing Agreement, for use of the Service by a school or an organization, you are agreeing on behalf of that organization.

NEWZIK’S ROLE AND SERVICES


The Service is published by SYNCSING, which acts as:


1) Service provider allowing the Customer to have a custom system to manage centrally the score library and its members, Users. The Service, ordered by Customer via the order form, includes unlimited import of files and access to collaborative features.


2) Intermediary to connect Publishers wishing to distribute their Products to Customer via the NEWZIK API. As such, NEWZIK does not own the Products sold via NEWZIK API, exercises no control over them and cannot be held responsible for the quality or delivery by the Publisher of the Products resulting from the transaction between the Publisher and the Customer. The sales contract for each Product is therefore concluded exclusively and directly between the Publisher, owner and seller of the Product and the Customer. NEWZIK only acts as a simple technical intermediary in NEWZIK API. 


If the Customer uses any NEWZIK API, NEWZIK does not warrant or support any services provided by the Publishers. The Customer will comply with any NEWZIK API limits associated with the services plan purchased by the Customer. All indications on Product prices and Product delivery methods are established by the Publishers without NEWZIK's intervention. In addition, it is specified that the Publishers do not have the status of employee, proxy, agent or representative of NEWZIK.

By this validation, the Customer declares that he has read and accepted the Agreement before placing his order. Thus, the validation of the order is therefore equivalent to acceptance of this Agreement.

The following articles will survive expiry or termination of the Agreement: 5 (effects of termination), 9 (Intellectual Property Rights), 10 (Liability and Disclaimers), 11 (Pricing – Payment) and 12 (Miscellaneous). 



TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Access to the service

The Customer acknowledges that he has the means and skills necessary to use the Service. The Customer is responsible for the equipment necessary to access and use the Service, as well as the telecommunications costs incurred by their use.


To use the Service, the Customer must create an account and create the Customer's school or organization’s domain. The Customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of login details for the created account and must not disclose them to any third party. Connection identifiers are strictly personal and must be kept secret by the Customer and the Users. Any operation carried out on NEWZIK using the Customer's identifiers is deemed to have been carried out by the Customer, who is responsible for keeping his identifiers. 

 

The Customer must ensure that the information provided for opening the accounts is accurate and must immediately notify NEWZIK of any changes so that the information can be updated. In the event that the Customer's registration information is not updated, complete and/or accurate, NEWZIK reserves the right to suspend access to the Service.

Cloud storage

NEWZIK is a technology provider with the Server for all Stored Data. NEWZIK accounts allow Customer and Users to send Stored Data to the Server for cloud storage every time Customer’s and Users’ devices go online. The Customer and Users can thus store and synchronize Stored Data across multiple devices which collaborate with others. 


If Customer and Users delete their Stored Data from their NEWZIK account, the Stored Data will be also deleted from the Server and cannot be retrieved. 

The communication of Stored Data is secured while sent to the Server and NEWZIK guarantees an exclusive security protocol (OAUTH2) to access the Server and each specific account information. With this level of security, the Stored Data can only be accessed by Users who are authorized by Customer and have the personal connection identifiers. NEWZIK Servers have different locations for security reasons, but all are located in the “EU-west-1” region and are hosted by Amazon Web Services. 



IMPORT OF CONTENT

It is prohibited to import to the Service library illegal content and content that is copyright protected. The Customer is the sole master of what he imports under his responsibility. In the event of a complaint due to illegal content, NEWZIK may suspend access to the NEWZIK accounts upon prior notice. The suspension shall take place within thirty days of notification.


Import of content from the NEWZIK api

While importing files coming from the NEWZIK API, this Content will be stored in the Customer’s account. The Publisher may then decide to apply certain technical restrictions. NEWZIK allows the Publisher to manage restrictions as they might be set out in the contract between the Publisher and the Customer:

 

  • Expiration date: On the date of expiration of the Customer's rights to the Publisher’s content, he will no longer have access to the Publisher’s content as distributed by the Publisher. The Customer will have access to a Degraded Version, which he can only use to find annotations previously made by him. If the Customer renews the contract made with the Publisher for the same content, all the annotations and edits made on the content will be fully retrieved and accessible.

  • Number of licenses: The number of licenses granted by the Publisher over the Publisher’s content corresponds to the number of Users who will have access to it;

  • Printing: The Publisher can authorize or deny printing of the Publisher’s content by the Customer and Users;


 

The Publisher undertakes to set on the Service only those restrictions set out in the contract between the Publisher and the Customer.

NEWZIK will use industry standard technical and organizational security measures to transfer, store, and process Customer Data. 


The Service may enable Users to share the Customer Data, including to other Customer Users and to third parties.

The Customer understands: (a) it is solely the Customer’s, and its Users’, choice to share the Customer Data; (b) NEWZIK cannot control third parties with whom the Customer has shared the Customer Data; and (c) the Customer and its Users are solely responsible for their use of the Service, including any sharing of the Customer Data through the Service, use of the Service, including any sharing of the Customer Data through the Service. 

Third-party request

The Customer is responsible for responding to third-party requests via its own access to information. The Customer will seek to obtain information required to respond to third-party requests and will contact NEWZIK only if it cannot obtain such information despite diligent efforts.


If NEWZIK receives a third-party request, NEWZIK will make commercially reasonable efforts, to the extent allowed by law and by the terms of the third-party request, to: (i) notify the Customer promptly of NEWZIK’s receipt of a third-party request; (ii) comply with the Customer's commercially reasonable requests regarding its efforts to oppose a third-party request; and (iii) provide the Customer with information or tools required for the Customer to respond to the third-party request, if the Customer is otherwise unable to respond to the third-party request. If NEWZIK is prohibited from notifying the Customer of a third-party request or the Customer fails to respond promptly to any third-party request, NEWZIK may, but will not be obligated to do so, to the extent permitted by applicable law. 

Customer data transfer

The Customer agrees that NEWZIK and its subcontractors may transfer the Customer Data to and access and store the Customer Data in locations other than the Customer’s country.

Student data - United States 

To the extent that the Users of the Customer’s accounts are students and that U.S. law applies, Student Data may include “educational records” as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), 20 U.S.C., § 1232(g). NEWZIK accesses, collects, and processes Student Data, as an outsourced institutional function pursuant to FERPA.

As between Customer and NEWZIK, the Customer owns all right, title and interest to all Student Data the Customer provides or otherwise makes available to NEWZIK, and NEWZIK processes such Student Data solely for the purpose of providing the Service to the school.

Both NEWZIK and the Customer agree to uphold their responsibilities under Laws governing personal data and Student Data, including FERPA, the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA), and the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”). NEWZIK relies on each school to obtain and provide appropriate consent and disclosures, if necessary, for NEWZIK to collect any Student Data directly from students under 13, as permitted under COPPA rules and regulations.

By submitting or providing NEWZIK access to Student Data, the Customer grants to NEWZIK a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license during the Term of the Agreement to use, modify, reproduce, display, sublicense and store the Student Data solely for the purposes of

  • (i) providing the Service to the Customer and Users,

  • (ii) improving and developing the Service,

  • (iii) enforcing NEWZIK’s rights under the Agreement, and

  • (iv) as permitted with the School’s, student’s or parent’s consent.

NEWZIK may collect, analyze, use, store, transmit, distribute, modify, copy, display, sublicense, and create data derived from Student Data, as well as data about Customer’s, and other users’ access and use of the Service. If NEWZIK shares or publicly discloses information (e.g., in marketing materials, or in product development) that is derived from Student Data or Customer’s use of the Service, such data will be de-identified, aggregated, or anonymized to reasonably avoid identification of an individual Student or the school. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, NEWZIK shall not use Student Data to engage in interest-based advertising.

The Customer may request that NEWZIK deletes Customer’s Student Data in its possession at any time by providing such a request in writing, which request NEWZIK shall then comply with in a commercially reasonable time not to exceed two (2) weeks. NEWZIK will otherwise delete or de-identify Student Data within a commercially reasonable time following the end of the Term of the Agreement. NEWZIK is not required to delete any data that has been derived from Student Data, including Student Data that has been de-identified, aggregated, or anonymized.

NEWZIK will implement commercially reasonable administrative, physical and technical safeguards designed to protect Student Data from unauthorized access, disclosure or use. In the event that NEWZIK discovers that an unauthorized party has gained access to personally identifiable Student Data, NEWZIK will promptly notify the Customer and will use reasonable efforts to cooperate with Customer’s investigation of the incident. If such incident triggers any third-party notice requirements under U.S. law, the Customer agrees that as the owner of the Student Data, the Customer will be responsible for the timing, content, cost, and method of any such notice and compliance with such law.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY 


Intellectual property rights


The Customer acknowledges NEWZIK's intellectual property rights over the Service, its components and related content and waives any right to contest these rights in any form whatsoever. The trademarks, logos, slogans, graphics, photographs, animations, videos, software solutions and texts contained on the Service are the exclusive intellectual property of NEWZIK or the Third-Parties and may not be reproduced, used or represented without explicit prior authorization under penalty of legal action. Warning: downloading an element of the Service on a computer, does not give the Customer any property right on this element.


Any representation or reproduction, in whole or in part, of the Service and its content, by any means whatsoever, without the explicit prior authorization of NEWZIK, or where applicable of the Publisher with regard to the content distributed by them, is prohibited and shall constitute an infringement punishable by Articles L. 335-2 and following and Articles L. 713-1 and following of the Intellectual Property Code. In particular, NEWZIK expressly prohibits:

  • Extraction, by permanent or temporary transfer of all or a qualitatively or quantitatively substantial part of the content of the NEWZIK database to a medium other than the NEWZIK account, by any means and in any form whatsoever;

  • Reuse, by making available to the public all or a qualitatively or quantitatively substantial part of the content of the NEWZIK database or account, in any form whatsoever.
