Updated January 29, 2021
Welcome to ShowUp, a product of Dovico Software Inc., incorporated under the laws of New Brunswick, Canada, herein d/b/a ShowUp.
The Agreement applies to the purchase of ShowUp’s subscription service by you, the Customer. Please review the Agreement carefully. By accessing the Service, acquiring a free or paid User License for the Service, or otherwise using the Service, you are confirming that you have read, understand, and accept the Agreement.
The Agreement shall become effective on the earlier of the date you first access or use the Service and the date you establish an account. If the person accepting the Agreement is doing so on behalf of an organization, that person represents that he or she has the authority to bind the organization to the Agreement.
- Description of the Service
ShowUp is an online system (the “System”) to empower an organization’s employees to improve corporate and community culture and engagement. The System prompts employee’s opinions on aspects of their environment, responses are analyzed, and metrics of cultural health are displayed. Employees may validate their inputs, and management may take actions to improve the culture.
“Service” refers to ShowUp’s proprietary culture improvement service for organizations including the website, app, proprietary system, and content.
“Customer” refers to a person or entity that purchases a subscription (in the form of User Licenses) to access the Service.
“Respondent” refers to an individual who submits Survey Responses.
“Survey Response” refers to an employee’s expressed opinions to relevant queries.
“Administrator” refers to a supervisor who manages steps in the System’s process. The Administrator:
a. Selects and prepares queries about the corporate environment; b. Issues queries to Respondents to respond (Survey Responses); and c. Assembles Survey Responses for aggregation, accumulation, and analysis to yield meaningful results from employees’ inputs.
The Administrator accesses Survey Responses solely to execute the above process after which the Survey Responses are deleted.
“Content” refers to audio, video, and textual material; survey queries, dashboard text, graphics and displays; and aggregated accumulated textual results.
“Users” refers to a Customer’s employees, affiliates, representatives, consultants, contractors, or agents who have been supplied with user identifications and passwords by the Customer, not to exceed the number of User Licenses purchased by the Customer.
“User Licenses” refers to the named user licenses that Customer has purchased.
You and your (upper or lower case) are convenient pronouns to refer to the Customer and by extension Users as the context permits.
- Payments and Accounts
To enroll in the Service, the Administrator purchases a subscription account through ShowUp’s websites or app. Each Respondent joins the account by acquiring a User License with his or her name and a valid email address. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your login and password.
“Free Accounts” refer to free user licenses that may be issued for up to a maximum of ten users. If you wish to exceed ten users, you must convert the Free Account to a Paid Account.
“Paid Accounts” require paid user licenses that are paid monthly in advance by automatic recurring credit card payments. User Licenses may be purchased and cancelled at any time. Refunds are not provided for partial months.
All fees are exclusive of taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities. You are responsible for paying any such applicable tax.
- Cancellation and Termination
Paid Accounts will be considered terminated once all User Licenses have been canceled. Please be sure to print your reports from the Service prior to termination.
If you terminate the Service before the end of your currently paid-up month, your termination will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again. Any unused time in the last billing cycle is not pro- rated.
Free Accounts will be terminated without notice if they have been inactive for a period of six months.
If we reasonably determine that your use of the Service impairs the use of the Service, or is not in accordance with the Agreement, we shall reserve our right to suspend or terminate your Account if we are unable to resolve the problem.

- No Warranties
ShowUp provides the Service on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Your use of the Service is at your sole risk. ShowUp reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. If maintenance work is necessary and if the Service is not available for maintenance reasons, we will inform you in advance. ShowUp will not be responsible for network-related downtime or for downtime in which the Service cannot be accessed due to technical or other problems outside our area of influence, e.g., Force Majeure, or fault of third parties.
Except as expressly stated in this Agreement, all warranties, and conditions, whether express or implied by statute, common law or otherwise (including but not limited to satisfactory quality and fitness for purpose), are hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. No warranty is made regarding the results of usage of the Service or that the functionality of the Service will meet the requirements of the Customer or that the Service will operate uninterrupted or error free. This paragraph shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
- Acknowledgment of Beta Software.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that: (a) the Software is not an official product and has not been commercially released for sale by ShowUp; (b) the Software may not operate properly, be in final form or fully functional; (c) the Software may contain errors, design flaws or other problems; (d) it may not be possible to make the Software fully functional; (e) the information obtained using the Software may not be accurate and may not accurately correspond to information extracted from any database or other source; (f) use of the Software may result in unexpected results, loss of data or communications, project delays or other unpredictable damage or loss; (g) ShowUp is under no obligation to release a commercial version of the Software; and (h) ShowUp has the right unilaterally to abandon development of the Software, at any time and without any obligation or liability to Customer. Customer acknowledges and agrees that it should not rely on the Software for any reason.
The Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless ShowUp, its affiliates, subsidiaries, suppliers or agents from and against all liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including settlement costs and reasonable legal costs) arising out of any claim by a third party against ShowUp and its affiliates, subsidiaries, suppliers or agents regarding: (a) Your Content; (b) Customer's use of the Service in breach of this Agreement; (c) Users' use of the Service in breach of this Agreement; or (d) the processing of Personal Data on behalf of, and in accordance with the instructions of the Customer.
ShowUp will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Customer from and against all liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses (including settlement costs and reasonable legal costs) arising out of any claim by a third party against Customer that use of ShowUp’s technology to provide the Service infringes the third party’s Intellectual Property Rights. In no event will ShowUp have any obligations or liability under this paragraph arising from: (a) use of the Service in a modified form or in combination with materials not furnished by ShowUp; and (b) any content, information, or data provided by the Customer, Users, or other third parties.
If ShowUp believes the Service infringe or may be alleged to infringe a third party's Intellectual Property Rights, then ShowUp may: (a) obtain the right for the Customer, at ShowUp's expense, to continue using the Service; (b) provide a non-infringing functionally equivalent replacement; or (c) modify the Service so that they no longer infringe. If ShowUp does not believe the options described in this section are commercially reasonable then ShowUp may suspend or terminate Customer's use of the affected Service (with a pro-rata refund of prepaid fees for the Service).
The party seeking indemnification will promptly notify the other party of the claim and cooperate with the other party in defending the claim. The indemnifying party will have full control and authority over the defense, except that: (a) any settlement requiring the party seeking indemnification to admit liability requires prior written consent of the indemnifying party, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed
and (b) the other party may join in the defense with its own counsel at its own expense. The indemnities above are each party’s only remedy under this Agreement for any breach by the other party of a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights.
- Limitation of liability
In no event shall either party be liable to the other whether arising under this Agreement or in tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation or however arising, for any: (a) consequential loss; (b) pure economic loss; (c) losses incurred by any client of Customer or other third party; (d) loss of profits (whether categorised as direct or indirect loss); (e) losses arising from business interruption; (f) loss of business revenue, goodwill or anticipated savings; (g) losses whether or not occurring in the normal course of business, wasted management or staff time; and (h) loss or corruption of data; even if a party knew that such losses were possible or were reasonably foreseeable.
The aggregate liability of each party to the other (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) arising under or in connection with this Agreement is limited to the amount paid under this Agreement (excluding taxes) for the Service provided during the one-month period prior to the date on which the cause of action arose.
The limits on liability apply to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, but do not apply to: (a) fraud, death or personal injury caused by any negligent act or omission or willful misconduct of ShowUp in connection with the provision of the Service; (b) any indemnities given under Section 8; or (c) a breach of the other party’s Intellectual Property Rights.
Each party acknowledges and agrees that in entering into this Agreement, each party had recourse to its own skill and judgement and has not relied on any representations made by the other party, or any employees or agents of the other party.
For the avoidance of doubt, in no instance will ShowUp be liable for any losses or damages you suffer if you use the Service in violation of this Agreement, regardless of whether we terminate or suspend your account due to such violation.
- Modification of Agreement, Service and Prices
Agreement: We reserve the right to update and change the Agreement as posted on ShowUp’s website. Your use of the Service will be subject to the most current posted version of the Agreement at the time of such use.
Service: We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any part of the Service with or without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to the Agreement. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

ShowUp shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension, or discontinuance of the Service.
Any notice to you will be effective when we send it to the last email or physical address you gave us. Any notice to us will be effective when delivered to us along with a copy to: Attn. Legal Department at ShowUp’s address below.
You may not assign any of your rights under this Agreement to anyone else. We may assign our rights to any other individual or entity at our discretion.
- Choice of Law
The laws of the Province of New Brunswick, except for conflict of laws rules, will apply to any dispute related to the Agreement or the Service. You acknowledge and agree that any dispute related to the Agreement or the Service itself will be decided by the Court of Queen’s Bench in Moncton, New Brunswick, and each party consents to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
Even if this Agreement is terminated, the following sections will continue to apply: Intellectual Property Rights and Ownership of Content, Limitation of Liability, No Warranties, Indemnity, Choice of Law, Severability, and Entire Agreement.
If it turns out that a section of these Terms is not enforceable, then that section will be removed or edited as little as required, and the rest of the Agreement will still be valid.
A waiver of any breach of this Agreement is not a waiver of any other breach. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
- Notification of Security Incident
If we become aware of a security incident related to our systems or databases that contain personal information of you or your contacts, we will notify you if required by law. In that event, we will also provide you with information about that incident so that you can evaluate the consequences to you and any legal or regulatory requirements that may apply to you, unless we are prevented from doing so by legal, security or confidentiality obligations. Notifying you of a security incident or cooperating with you to respond to one will not be deemed an acknowledgement or assumption of any liability or fault of ShowUp for such incident.
- Entire Agreement
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between the parties and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreements, representations, negotiations, and discussions between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof. All order forms, terms and conditions or any other documents provided by the Customer are specifically excluded from and do not form part of the terms of the Agreement.
- Force Majeure
Neither party will be liable for any breach of this Agreement due to Force Majeure. However, this section will not apply to Customer’s payment obligations under this Agreement. As soon as practicable after an event of Force Majeure arises, the party affected by Force Majeure must notify the other party of the extent to which the notifying party is unable to perform its obligations under this Agreement.
