In the event Spellbook is required for any reason to pay Sales Taxes on Customer’s behalf, Customer will promptly reimburse Spellbook for all amounts paid.

4.  DATA, SECURITY & PRIVACY.

4.1.     Processing of Customer Usage Data. Spellbook must process Customer Usage Data in certain ways to power the Spellbook’s product features and ensure adequate functionality of the Spellbook AI Platform, including sending Contract Data to LLMs to generate Output. In doing so, however, Spellbook will not share Customer Usage Data with other Spellbook customers or third parties for any purposes except those provided below. Accordingly:

(a)      Regarding data processing by Third Party LLMs, Customer understands, acknowledges, and consents to the following:

(i)         Data Transmission and Retrieval. Spellbook transmits Customer Usage Data (particularly Contract Data and User prompts) to its Third Party LLM in order to generate Output, and retrieves Output from the LLMs to provide to the Customer; all such transmitted and retrieved Customer Usage Data is encrypted in transit according to industry standard encryption protocols.

(ii)       Data Protection by LLMs. Spellbook only transmits Customer Usage Data as needed to Third Party LLMs to deliver the Spellbook AI Platform’s necessary functionality to the Customer as contemplated in the Order. In each case, Spellbook has executed a data processing agreement with those Third Party LLMs to ensure they are responsible for processing Customer Usage Data in compliance with Privacy/Security Laws.

(iii)      No Third Party LLM Model Training. Customer Usage Data transmitted by Spellbook to Third Party LLMs is not used to train the AI models of those Third Party LLMs. Spellbook has opted out of all available options to do so, as applicable, for each Third Party LLM.

(b)     Regarding Spellbook’s internal data processing activities, Customer understands, acknowledges, and consents to the following:

(i)         General Data Processing. Spellbook only collects, processes, stores, or otherwise uses Customer Usage Data as necessary to perform the features and functions of the Spellbook AI Platform that the Customer has purchased in an Order, or perform other activities specifically requested by its Users. For example, Spellbook collects and processes feedback voluntarily provided by Users to optimize product features for that User according to their feedback, or address any performance issues associated with such feedback. However, any unique Customer Usage Data stored and processed for a Customer and its Users will not be visible or accessible to other Spellbook customers.

(ii)       Analytics Data. Spellbook collects and analyzes non-identifying analytics data, such as Users’ quantitative usage metrics (e.g. monitoring clicks on a new feature) and other statistical information, relating to the Customer’s use and performance of various aspects of the Spellbook AI Platform, and analyzes such data to improve and enhance the Spellbook AI Platform, as well as to diagnose and correct issues associated with the Spellbook AI Platform.

(iii)      Improving Product Features. Spellbook may process stored Customer Usage Data to directly improve the quality of (and/or customize the experience of) the Customer’s available product features on the Spellbook AI Platform. This may include training internal AI models for general product improvement or Customer-specific personalization. Spellbook will, by default, collect and process Customer Data to customize each Customer’s experience according to how its Users interact with the Spellbook AI Platform (including the input the provide, such as prompts or document sections, and the Outputs they receive in response). Customers can request to opt out of Spellbook’s use of Customer Usage Data for particular Spellbook product features. However, if the Customer opts out of any particular use of Customer Usage Data, Customer acknowledges that it will experience reduced feature availability, functionality or specificity as a result.

4.2.     Data Ownership.

(a)      As between the Parties, the Customer owns: (i) all Customer Usage Data uploaded by Customer or its Users to the Spellbook AI Platform; and (ii) all Outputs.

(b)     Spellbook will treat Customer Usage Data as Confidential Information under Article 7, and will not disclose Customer Usage Data to any other customers or third parties, other than (i) to its data subprocessors as necessary to provide the services stipulated in the Order, or (ii) to its employees and authorized contractors on a need-to-know basis under obligations of confidentiality.

(c)      Customer grants to Spellbook a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, copy, store, modify, distribute, transfer and display Customer Usage Data solely for the purpose of providing the services of the Spellbook AI Platform to Customer on the terms of the Order.

(d)     Notwithstanding the foregoing, Spellbook may use Customer Usage Data to compile, use, and disclose anonymous, aggregated statistics, provided that no such information will directly identify and cannot reasonably be used to identify Customer or its Users or end clients of the Customer (the “Derived Data”). Spellbook will own all right, title, and interest in all of the Derived Data and all resulting Spellbook products or services incorporating the Derived Data.

4.3.     Spellbook’s Data Security.

(a)      Spellbook maintains reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect all Customer Usage Data (including Personal Data) processed, stored, collected or transmitted by Spellbook. Spellbook maintains a data security trust center available here, which (i) sets out all of Spellbook’s data security protocols, (ii) provides information on the data processing commitments of the LLMs used by Spellbook, and (iii) provides a list of Spellbook’s data subprocessors and related processing purposes. Further, a copy of Spellbook’s current security policy is available upon request.

(b)     Spellbook exercises diligent efforts to prevent unauthorized disclosure or exposure of Customer Usage Data. Accordingly, Spellbook will, on an ongoing basis, ensure that its data security program (and associated safeguards and privacy practices) are designed, maintained, updated and adjusted, as necessary, to protect against reasonably foreseeable internal and external risks to the security, confidentiality, and integrity of Customer Usage Data.

(c)      Regardless of its data security protocols, Spellbook will have no responsibility or liability for (i) the accuracy of Customer Usage Data uploaded to the Spellbook AI Platform by Customer and its Users, or (ii) Customer’s usage of, or reliance on, Outputs.

(d)     Notwithstanding anything else in this Article 4, Spellbook may be compelled to disclose Customer Usage Data as required by applicable law or by proper legal or governmental authority. In such cases, Spellbook will give Customer prompt notice of the legal or governmental demand/order for disclosure, and reasonably cooperate with Customer in any effort to seek a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure.

(e)      Spellbook complies with all Privacy/Security Laws that are applicable both specifically to Spellbook and generally to data processors in the jurisdictions in which Spellbook does business.

4.4.     Customer’s Personal Data.

(a)      Spellbook collects and uses categories of Personal Data from the Customer and its Users that are required to administer Customer’s Spellbook account, including payment records and credit cards.

(b)     Customer acknowledges that Spellbook’s management of Customer’s Personal Data is governed by its privacy policy available here, and Customer recognizes and agrees that nothing in this Agreement restricts Spellbook’s right to alter its privacy policy as required by Spellbook or by Privacy/Security Laws.

(c)      As part of administering the Customer’s account, Spellbook may disclose Personal Data to certain subprocessors when necessary, and these subprocessors (and their purposes) are identified in Spellbook’s data security trust center here.

6.2.     Feedback.

(a)      Spellbook has not agreed to and does not agree to treat as confidential any suggestions or ideas for improving or otherwise modifying any of Spellbook’s products or services that Customer or Users give Spellbook (“Feedback”).

7.  CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

7.1.     Scope of Confidential Information.

(a)      For the purposes of this Section 7, “Confidential Information” refers to the following items either Party (the “Discloser”) discloses to the other Party (the “Recipient”): (a) any document the Discloser marks “confidential” or designates as “confidential” at the time of its disclosure; (b) the Documentation, whether or not marked or designated confidential; and (c) any other non-public, sensitive information the Discloser should reasonably consider a trade secret or otherwise confidential.

(b)     Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is in Recipient’s possession at the time of disclosure; (ii) is independently developed by the Recipient without use of or reference to Confidential Information; (iii) becomes known publicly, before or after disclosure, other than as a result of Recipient’s improper action or inaction; (iv) is approved by Discloser in writing for release by Recipient; or (iv) Feedback from the Customer.

(c)      Recipient will protect Confidential Information with the same degree of care it uses to protect its own confidential information of similar nature and importance, but with no less than reasonable care.

With respect to each item of Confidential Information, the obligations of Section 7.2 above (Non-Disclosure) will terminate two (2) years after the date of disclosure; provided that such obligations related to Confidential Information constituting Discloser’s trade secrets will continue so long as such information remains subject to trade secret protection pursuant to applicable law.
