The terms and conditions that form this Participation Agreement (the “Agreement”) apply to the Virtual CommissioningTM, VCxTM, Virtual Retro-CommissioningTM, Virtual Re-CommissioningTM, Virtual RCxTM, and Virtual Advisor and Commissioning (VACx)TM programs (individually and collective the “Program”) offered by Power TakeOff and their utility partners (also “us”, “our”, “ours”), as well as any of the related software access, reports, consultation, or other Services (collectively “Services”) related to presentation and review of utility and facility based information.

BY CONTINUING TO WORK WITH PROGRAM PERSONNEL, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF USE; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, TELL PROGRAM PERSONNEL AT YOUR FIRST OPPORTUNITY AND DISCONTINUE DISCUSSING YOUR ENERGY USE WITH THEM.  THIS AGREEMENT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES AND CREATES A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND POWER TAKEOFF INC (“Power TakeOff”).

If you are using the program on behalf of a business or of an individual or individuals, the business or the individual(s) accepts the Agreement and you (1) acknowledge that you have the authority to bind the business or individual(s) and (2) agree to this Agreement on behalf of the business or individual(s).

Energy Savings and other Benefits

Unless explicitly promising a “guarantee,” Power TakeOff does not guarantee or promise any specific level of energy savings or other monetary benefit from participation in the Program or the use of the products or Services or any feature of them. Actual energy savings and monetary benefits vary with factors beyond Power TakeOff’s control or knowledge. From time to time, Power TakeOff may use the Services to provide you with information that is unique to you and your energy usage and suggests an opportunity to save money on energy bills if you adopt suggestions or features of the product or Services. We do this to highlight an opportunity based on our analysis and information about you and your premises. You acknowledge that these promotions are not a guarantee of actual savings, and you agree not to seek monetary or other remedies from Power TakeOff if your savings differ.

Storage and Transmission of Customer Data

We shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that Customer Data will be safeguarded when stored on Power TakeOff’s network or servers and/or transmitted over the internet, including the use of industry-recognized best practices and technologies for data security and integrity.

You acknowledge that your use of the Services will involve transmission over various network communications facilities or other electronic means that may not be owned or operated by Power TakeOff. Therefore, you agree that Power TakeOff is not responsible for any Customer Data that is lost, altered, intercepted or stored without authorization during the transmission across networks not owned or operated by Power TakeOff.

License to Anonymized Customer Data

Every customer that participates in the Program and or uses the Services is part of a large scale and important benchmarking study. We use this data, in anonymous form, to make useful comparisons among various types and sizes of buildings and to increase the value of the Program and Services and its accuracy for all users. Therefore, you hereby agree that the Program can record, reproduce, transmit and use your Customer Data for benchmarking and other purposes, as long as the Customer Data is no longer identifiable to you or specific buildings. This right will survive the expiration, termination or cessation of your participation in the Program.
