These Terms and Conditions ("Terms") govern your use of the Accend platform and its associated services, developed by Accend Technology, Inc ("Accend Technology").

3. Account Registration

To access certain features of the Services, you may be required to create an account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, including your username and password, and for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify Accend Technology immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.

4. Use of Services

  • Violate any applicable law, regulation, or industry standard;
  • Infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others;

5. Intellectual Property

All content, design, and functionality of the Services, including text, graphics, logos, and software, are the exclusive property of Accend Technology or its licensors and are protected by copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property laws. You may not use, reproduce, or distribute any part of the Services without the prior written consent of Accend Technology.

6. KYB/EDD Report Automation

Accend Technology offers an advanced Know Your Business (KYB) and Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) report automation service. This feature aims to simplify and expedite the traditionally manual and time-consuming process of drafting KYB and EDD reports. Once relevant data is gathered, the platform will generate comprehensive reports based on set parameters, preferences, and risk assessments. It's important to note that while our platform automates the report generation process, users retain the responsibility of ensuring data accuracy and adhering to regulatory standards.

7. Online Research Tools

Our Accend platform is also equipped with specialized online research tools designed to assist users in gathering essential information from various online sources. Tools may include web crawlers, data aggregators, and integrations with popular online databases such as Google Search, OpenCorp, LinkedIn, Crunchbase, and more. While our platform aids in streamlining the research process, it's crucial for users to verify the data obtained, as Accend Technology is not responsible for the accuracy or currentness of information sourced from third-party websites.

8. Termination

Accend Technology may terminate your access to the Services at any time, with or without cause, and without prior notice. You may also discontinue your use of the Services at any time. Upon termination, your right to access and use the Services will immediately cease, and any content or data associated with your account may be deleted.

9. Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability

The Services are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis, without any warranties of any kind, either express or implied. Accend Technology disclaims all warranties, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement (only to the extent permitted by law), and any warranties arising out of course of dealing or usage of trade. Accend Technology does not warrant that the Services will be uninterrupted, secure, or error-free, or that any errors or defects will be corrected.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, in no event shall Accend Technology, its affiliates, directors, employees, or agents be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages, or any loss of profits, revenue, data, or other intangible losses, resulting from your access to or use of, or inability to access or use, the Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), or any other legal theory, and whether or not Accend Technology has been informed of the possibility of such damages.

In any case, Accend Technology's aggregate liability for all claims relating to the Services shall not exceed the amount paid by you to Accend Technology for the Services in the 12 months preceding the event giving rise to the claim.

10. Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Accend Technology, its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, or expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with your access to or use of the Services, your violation of these Terms, or your infringement of any intellectual property or other rights of any third party.

Furthermore, both parties agree to mutually indemnify, defend, and hold harmless each other from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, or expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, arising from (a) any claim by a third party that the use of the Services or the Platform infringes the intellectual property rights of that third party; or (b) any breach of Data Protection Legislation in relation to this Agreement. This mutual indemnification ensures that each party is protected against losses arising from these specified legal challenges.
