Terms & Conditions
Updated November 3, 2022
These Terms of Service govern your use of Inspire’s cloud-based leadership software platform and related services (collectively, the “Platform”) and related website www.inspiresoftware.com (the “Site”).
Please read this page carefully. By using the Platform or accessing the Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. In other words, these Terms of Service are a binding contract between you and us. If you are unwilling to be bound these Terms of Service, please do not use the Platform or access the Site.
Please note that these Terms of Service are subject to change. We, in our sole discretion, may revise the Terms of Service at any time by updating this page. You should visit this page periodically to review the Terms of Service, as it is binding upon you. Please also note these Terms of Service contain provisions that govern how disputes between you and us are resolved, including an arbitration provision, a jury trial waiver and a class action waiver.
1. WHY DID WE CREATE THE PLATFORM?
We designed the Platform to help “inspire” you to achieve your objectives, develop leadership techniques, and enhance your business performance. The Platform contains features such as context-based eLearning, online workshops, and enterprise objective management. Please note that some features of the Service will vary depending on which Inspire plan you select.
We are always working on improving the Platform, so keep an eye out for new features. Currently, the Platform supports four categories of users: Customers, Administrators, Supervisors, and Authorized Users. Each type of user has different permissions and responsibilities, which we outline in Section 3, below. For ease of reference, we will use the term “you” in these Terms of Service to refer to the user of the Platform and/or Site (whether you are a Customer, Administrator, Supervisor, Authorized User, or visitor to the Site).
2. WHO IS OUR CUSTOMER?
- The Customer. Except for a limited 10 day free trial (see Section 7), the Platform is only available to customers (“Customers”) who sign our Master Services Agreement (“MSA”), pay a fee, and create an Inspire account (the “Account”). Only individuals who have the full authority to enter into binding contracts and conduct business on behalf of the Customer may sign the MSA and create an Account. We may require this individual (hereinafter the “Initial User”) to provide proof of their authority to enter into contracts on behalf of the Customer, and we reserve the right to suspend the Customer’s access to the Platform until such proof is provided. However, we specifically disclaim all liability for an MSA that was signed and/or an Account that was opened by an individual who had no authority to do so on Customer’s behalf.By creating an Account, the Customer represents and warrants that the Initial User has full authority to create the Account; that all registration information that is submitted is truthful and accurate; and that the Customer will maintain the accuracy of such information. If any of the Account information changes, the Account must be immediately updated with the current information. Information related to the Account can be changed or updated by contacting us at email@example.com.
- The Customer’s representations & warranties regarding Data. Users of the Platform may enter data into the Platform, which may include or incorporate information related to the Customers’ employees, as well as third party individuals – for example, independent contractors (collectively, the “Data”). The Customer represents and warrants that it has all necessary rights and permissions to enter the Data into the Platform. The Customer further understands and agrees that it shall (i) bear all responsibility for the Data, and (ii) resolve all disputes involving the Data. The Customer represents and warrants that it will hold us harmless from all claims and/or disputes related to the Data, per Section 10 (indemnification).
3. TYPES OF USERS OF THE PLATFORM, AND THEIR CORRESPONDING RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
Upon the creation of the Account, we will work with the Customer to set up permissions and delegate tasks and authorities to various users of the Platform. These users will fall into one of three categories, depending on the level of permissions they are granted:
Administrator – The Administrator Category contains four subcategories: General Administrators, Human Resource Administrators, and Dashboard Administrators (collectively referred to as “Administrators”). Each subcategory has different rights and permissions. For example, the General Administrator and Human Resource Administrator can add or delete other users of the Account, including other Administrators.
Supervisor – Users in the Supervisor Category (“Supervisors”) have access to certain data and features of the Platform that Authorized Users do not. For example, Supervisors have the ability to see direct reports and manage the Authorized Users who report to them.
Authorized User – Users in the Authorized User Category (“Authorized Users”) are neither Administrators nor Supervisors, and do not have access to the administrative and supervisory features of the Platform.
- Requirements of an Administration. Administrators must have full authority to act on behalf of the Customer. We may require the Administrators to provide proof that they have the authority to act on behalf of the Customer. However, we specifically disclaim all liability for the actions of Administrators who had no authority to act on the Customer’s behalf.
- Permissions & restrictions for Administrators. Administrators have the highest level of permissions on the Platform. Any user (whether that user is an Administrator, a Supervisor, or an Authorized User) may be added or deleted by another Administrator with the requisite permissions (i.e., the General Administrator or Human Resource Administrator). In the event a user is deleted from the Platform, that user shall cease to have access to the Platform and any information/data/content within the Platform. An Administrator with the requisite permissions may also rename the Account or change information in the Account. However, Administrators shall not take any action or inaction that is disparaging to Customer or contrary to Customer’s mission or instructions. We are not liable for the conduct of the Customer or Administrators, including, without limitation, deletion of data, improper use of data, inappropriate information posted; violation of laws related to privacy; or any other conduct by the Customer or an Administrator.
- Conflicts involving Administrators. In the event of a conflict among two or more Administrators or between an Administrator and the Customer, the Customer must resolve the issue and provide us with written instructions, signed by the Customer’s Chief Executive Officer, on how to proceed. We will proceed based on those instructions. In the event of a conflict over the identity of the Chief Executive Officer, we will act in accordance to a court order that names the Chief Executive Officer. If a dispute requires us to engage counsel, Customer agrees to pay our fees and costs. We may suspend Account and your Access to the Platform until said conflict is resolved.
- Supervisors and Authorized Users.
- Permissions and restrictions for Supervisors & Authorized Users. Supervisors and Authorized Users must comply with the instructions of the Customer and Administrators. Supervisors and Authorized Users acknowledge and agree that an Administrator with the requisite permissions may (a) remove their access to the Platform; (b) delete or change any information that a Supervisor or Authorized User has entered into the Platform. Supervisors and Authorized Users shall not take any action or inaction that interferes with the Customer’s ability to use the Platform, is disparaging to Customer, or is contrary to Customer’s mission and/or instructions.
- General Requirements for All Users of the Platform.
- Security of Username and Password. All users of the Platform, no matter what category, are responsible for their respective usernames, passwords, and the security of the Account. Specifically, you may never use another’s username and password. You may not allow others to access or use the Platform with your unique username, password, or other security code. You agree to notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your username and/or password. You acknowledge and agree that we will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your username and password. You shall keep your password secure and take appropriate measures to safeguard the security of your username, password and electronic device(s).
- Accurate contact information. All users of the Platform are responsible for providing their legal full name, a valid email address or mobile phone number, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process. If any of this information changes, the information must be immediately updated with the current information. Information can be changed or updated by going to the User Management section and clicking on “Admin Settings.” All users can also contact us with questions on how to update or change their information by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

It can shorten the litigation process and result in cost savings, but it also takes away certain rights, such as the right to a trial in front of your peers. Thus, please take time to carefully consider the Arbitration, Jury Trial Waiver and Class Action Waiver Provisions of this Agreement. Since the information provided in this Agreement is not intended to contain a complete explanation of the consequences of arbitration, class action or jury waiver, you may want to consult an attorney.
