We are a company that has developed an online Engagement Insights Platform, available at talivest.com (the “Engagement” Platform”), that allows companies to evaluate engagement levels and optimise workforce decision making.
1.3 The relationship between you (“Member”), the Subscriber and Us
An organization or other third party that we refer to in these Terms as “Subscriber” has invited you to join and/or participate to use our Engagement Platform curated by that same Subscriber.
The Subscriber has separately agreed to purchase our Services under the terms of an enterprise-level agreement with us (the “Enterprise-Level Agreement”). Under the terms of the Enterprise Level Agreement, we agree to allow the Subscriber to set up and configure their own Engagement Platform so that you and others could join (each invitee granted access to the Services, including you, is a “Member”). The Enterprise-Level Agreement contains our commitment to deliver the Services to the Subscriber, who may then invite Member’s to join its Engagement Platform(s).
If the Subscriber has signed up to our Services under the terms of a freemium/trial account, we agree to allow the Subscriber to set up and gain access to the online Engagement Platform so that they can evaluate engagement levels and optimise workforce decisions. (The Enterprise-Level Agreement contains our commitment to deliver the Services to the Subscriber, who may then invite Member’s onto the platform for survey reasons.)
When a Member (including, you) submits content or information to the Services, such as messages or files (“Subscriber Data”), you acknowledge and agree that the Subscriber Data is owned by the Subscriber (your former employer) and that the Enterprise-Level Agreement provides the Subscriber with many choices and control over that Subscriber Data. For example, the Subscriber may provision or deprovision access to the Services, enable or disable third party integrations, manage permissions, retention and export settings, transfer or assign Community Platforms, and that these choices and instructions may result in the access, use, disclosure, modification or deletion of certain or all Subscriber Data.
By entering into the Enterprise-Level Agreement and by the Subscriber inviting you the Member to join the Community Platform run by, the Subscriber has assumed responsibility for the following:
a) To inform you and any Member’s of any relevant Subscriber policies and practices and any settings that may impact the processing of Subscriber Data;
b) To obtain any rights, permissions or consents from you that are necessary for the lawful use of Subscriber Data and the operation of the Services;
c) To ensure that the transfer and processing of Subscriber Data under the Enterprise-Level Agreement is lawful;
d) To respond to and resolve any dispute with you relating to or based on Subscriber Data, the Services or Subscriber’s failure to fulfill these obligations.;
e) To ensure that you has access to the Subscriber Data; and
f) To ensure that you may request that their Data is removed from the Talivest site.
