If you have your principal place of business in the U.S. or Canada, this Agreement is an agreement between you and Facebook, Inc. Otherwise, this Agreement is an agreement between you and Facebook Ireland Limited. References to "Facebook", "us", "we", or "our" mean either Facebook, Inc. or Facebook Ireland Limited, as appropriate.
The parties hereby agree that you will gain access and usage rights to Workplace through one of Facebook's Resellers (as defined below). As such, you acknowledge and confirm that you have entered into an agreement with Reseller for the right to access and use Workplace.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, if you have an existing agreement with Facebook for the use of Workplace through Facebook directly, then upon execution of this Agreement, you and Facebook hereby agree that this Agreement shall supersede and govern your use of Workplace as of the Effective Date (as defined below). For purposes of clarification, as between you and Facebook, this Agreement shall govern your use of Workplace as of the Effective Date of this Agreement.
This Agreement is entered into between Facebook and you as of the date you indicate your acceptance of this Agreement by clicking the acceptance button (the "Effective Date").
Certain capitalized terms are defined in Section 12 (Definitions) and others are defined contextually in this Agreement.
  1. Use of Workplace.
    1. Your Usage Rights. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the Term, you have a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to access and use Workplace for your own internal business purposes in accordance with this Agreement. Use of Workplace is limited to the Users for whom you enable accounts, and you are responsible for all Users and their compliance with this Agreement and their access to, and use of, Workplace. For clarity, Workplace is provided as a service to you, not to Users individually.
    2. Accounts. Your registration and account information must be accurate, complete and kept up-to-date. Workplace accounts are for individual Users and cannot be shared or transferred. You must keep all login credentials confidential and agree to notify Facebook immediately if you discover any unauthorized use of your accounts or login credentials. Different Workplace account types have different permissions (e.g., admin accounts) and you may not grant Users greater permissions than allowed under their account types.
    3. Restrictions. You will not (and will not permit anyone else to): (a) use Workplace on behalf of any third party or rent, lease, provide access to or sublicense Workplace to any third party, except Users as expressly permitted herein; (b) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise seek to obtain the source code to Workplace, except to the extent expressly permitted by applicable law (and then only upon advance notice to Facebook); (c) copy, modify or create derivative works of Workplace; (d) remove, modify or obscure any proprietary or other notices contained within Workplace; (e) publicly disseminate information regarding the performance of Workplace; or (f) share admin access tokens with or grant similar app access permissions to any third party not expressly approved by Facebook, and, if you decide to grant such admin access, either via token or app permission, with an approved third party, you may allow the third party access to your data or content only to the extent necessary for the purpose approved by Facebook and consistent with your instructions. We reserve the right to limit such third party access (e.g., by resetting the access token or removing the app permission) at any time if we believe admin access has been or will be misused.
    4. Setup. During the setup of your Workplace instance, you will appoint a User(s) as the system administrator(s) of your Workplace environment who is responsible for managing your Workplace instance. You must ensure you have an active admin for your Workplace instance at all times.
  2. Your Data and Obligations.
    1. Your Data. As between the parties, you retain all right, title and interest (including intellectual property rights) in and to Your Data. During the Term, you grant Facebook a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully-paid right to use, copy, store, transmit, modify, display, perform and create derivative works of Your Data as necessary to provide Workplace to you, for related support purposes, and as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement. You acknowledge that Facebook is the data processor and that you are the data controller of Your Data, which Facebook may use on your behalf and in accordance with your instructions as set forth in this Agreement. You instruct Facebook to process Your Data for the purposes specified in this Agreement.
    2. Your Obligations. You agree to Workplace's Acceptable Use Policy and further agree (a) that you are solely responsible for the accuracy and content of Your Data; (b) to obtain all necessary rights and consents required by Laws from your Users and any applicable third party to allow the collection and use of data (including any personal data) with Workplace as contemplated in this Agreement; and (c) that your use of Workplace, including Your Data and its use hereunder, will not violate any Laws or third party rights, including intellectual property, privacy or publicity rights. You are responsible for the selection and content of any of Your Policies applicable to your use of Workplace and for communicating Your Policies to Users, provided that any such policies must be consistent with this Agreement. If any of Your Data is submitted or used in violation of this Section 2, you agree to promptly remove it from Workplace. You are solely responsible for any decision to share Your Data among Users or with third parties using Workplace, and Facebook is not responsible for use, access, alteration, distribution or deletion of Your Data by those to whom you or your Users make it available. Both parties agree to the obligations set out in the Privacy Shield Addendum.
    3. Prohibited Data. You agree not to submit to Workplace any information or data that requires safeguarding or dissemination controls pursuant to applicable laws and/or regulation ("Prohibited Information"). Examples of Prohibited Information include, but are not limited to, information categories identified as part of the Controlled Unclassified Information ("CUI") Registry maintained by the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration; patient, medical or other protected health information regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA") or any similar federal or state laws, rules or regulations governing health information; "education records" as defined in the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA") and any other data subject to legal or regulatory safeguarding obligations and/or limitations on distribution. With regard to health information, you acknowledge that Facebook is not a Business Associate or subcontractor (as those terms are defined in HIPAA) and that Workplace is not HIPAA compliant. Facebook will have no liability under this Agreement for Prohibited Information, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.
    4. Indemnification. You will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Facebook (and its Affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, and representatives) from and against all claims (from third parties and/or Users), costs, damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or in connection with your breach or alleged breach of this Section 2 or otherwise related to Your Data, Your Policies or use of Workplace in violation of this Agreement. Facebook may participate in the defense and settlement of any such claim with its own counsel and at its own expense. You shall not settle any claim without Facebook's written consent if the settlement requires Facebook to take any action, refrain from taking any action, or admit any liability.
    5. Backups and Data Deletion. Facebook does not provide an archiving service, and you are solely responsible for creating backups of Your Data. You may delete Your Data consisting of User content at any time through the administrator functionality of Workplace, subject to Section 9.d (Deletion of Your Data).
    6. User Data. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that Facebook may provide Reseller with statistical information about Users' engagement on Workplace (e.g., number of groups, number of posts, number of reactions, number of chats, etc.). In addition, to help further facilitate the relationship between you and Reseller, you instruct Facebook to provide Reseller with the names, email addresses, and other information (which may include other personal data) about all of your system administrators.
  3. Facebook Security and Aggregate Data.
    1. Security of Your Data. We will use commercially reasonable technical, organizational and security measures designed to protect Your Data in our possession against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction, as further described in the Data Security Addendum.
    2. Aggregate Data. We may gather statistical data, analytics, trends and other aggregated or otherwise de-identified data derived from you and your Users' use of Workplace ("Aggregate Data"). For the avoidance of doubt, Aggregate Data does not include Your Data or any personal data.
    3. Legal Disclosures and Third Party Requests. You understand that Facebook may disclose Your Data to comply with data-breach notification laws and other legal requirements. You are generally responsible for responding to third party requests regarding Your Data, such as a subpoena, warrant, discovery order or other request or order from a law enforcement agency ("Third Party Requests"). We will, to the extent allowed by law and by the terms of the Third Party Request, use reasonable efforts to (a) notify you of our receipt of a Third Party Request and ask the third party to contact you and (b) comply with your reasonable requests regarding your efforts to oppose a Third Party Request at your expense. You will first seek to obtain the information required to respond to the Third Party Request on your own, and will contact us only if you cannot reasonably obtain such information.
    4. Data Processing. Both parties shall comply with the Data Processing Addendum. The provisions of the Data Processing Addendum shall prevail should they conflict with any provisions found elsewhere in this Agreement.
  4. Payment.
    1. Fees. You are not obligated to pay any fees to Facebook under this Agreement. You may be obligated to pay fees to Facebook's third party reseller that facilitates your access to Workplace ("Reseller") in connection with your access and use of Workplace pursuant to an agreement between you and such Reseller. Facebook reserves the right to charge you directly for your access and use of Workplace, at Facebook's then-current standard rates for Workplace and subject to Facebook's then-current standard terms and conditions for Workplace, if: (i) you and Reseller are unable to resolve a dispute with respect to Workplace after Facebook is aware or made aware of such dispute; or (ii) your agreement with such Reseller in relation to Workplace is terminated or expires for any reason and you continue to access and/or use Workplace after such termination or expiration.
  5. Confidentiality.
    1. Obligations. Each party (as "Receiving Party") agrees that all business, technical and financial information it obtains from the disclosing party ("Disclosing Party") constitutes the confidential property of the Disclosing Party ("Confidential Information"), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be confidential or proprietary due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are deemed Facebook's Confidential Information. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will: (1) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties; and (2) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know (including, for Facebook, those of its Affiliates and the subcontractors referenced in Section 11.j), provided that such representatives are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Disclosing Party than this Section 5 and that the Receiving Party remains responsible for compliance by any such representative with the terms of this Section 5.
    2. Exceptions. The Receiving Party's confidentiality obligations will not apply to information that the Receiving Party can document: (a) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (b) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (c) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (d) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information. The Receiving Party may make disclosures to the extent required by Laws or court order, provided that (unless prohibited by Laws) the Receiving Party notifies the Disclosing Party in advance and cooperates in any effort by the Disclosing Party to obtain confidential treatment.
    3. Injunctive Relief. The Receiving Party acknowledges that use of or disclosure of Confidential Information in violation of this Section 5 could cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such threatened or actual use or disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
  6. Intellectual Property Rights.
    1. Facebook Ownership. This is an agreement for access to and use of Workplace, and no ownership rights are conveyed to Customer. Facebook and its licensors retain all right, title and interest (including all intellectual property rights) in and to Workplace, Aggregate Data, any and all related and underlying technology, and any derivative works, modifications or improvements to any of the foregoing created by or on behalf of Facebook, including those based on your Feedback (defined below). No rights are granted to you except as expressly set forth in this Agreement.
    2. Feedback. If you submit comments, questions, suggestions, use cases or other feedback relating to Workplace or its API(s) or our other products or services ("Feedback"), we may freely use or exploit such Feedback in connection with any of our products or services or those of our Affiliates, without obligation or compensation to you.
  8. Limitations of Liability. EXCEPT FOR EXCLUDED CLAIMS (DEFINED BELOW): (A) NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF USE, LOST OR INACCURATE DATA, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, COSTS OF DELAY OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, RELIANCE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE; AND (B) NEITHER PARTY'S ENTIRE LIABILITY TO THE OTHER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL EXCEED TEN THOUSAND U.S. DOLLARS ($10,000 USD). "Excluded Claims" means (a) Customer liability arising under Section 2 (Your Data and Obligations); and (b) a party's breach of its obligations in Section 5 (Confidentiality) but excluding breaches relating to Your Data. The limitations in this Section 8 will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose. You acknowledge and agree that our provision of Workplace is based upon the assumption that our liability is limited as provided in this Agreement.
  9. Term and Termination.
    1. Term. This Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and continue until terminated as permitted herein (the "Term").
    2. Termination for Convenience. Without prejudice to your termination rights under paragraph 2(iv) of the Data Processing Addendum, you may terminate this Agreement at any time, for no reason or any reason, upon thirty (30) days' advance notice to both Facebook, by contacting Facebook support through Workplace, and Reseller, in accordance with the notice terms under your agreement with Reseller. Facebook may also terminate this Agreement at any time, for no reason or any reason, upon thirty (30) days' advance notice to you. In addition, during any period of Free Access, Facebook may suspend or limit Free Access (including your number of Users) at any time and for any reason.
    3. Facebook Termination and Suspension. Facebook reserves the right to terminate this Agreement with reasonable notice to you or immediately suspend your access to Workplace if you breach this Agreement or if we deem such action necessary to prevent harm to the security, stability, availability or integrity of Workplace.
    4. Deletion of Your Data. Facebook will delete Your Data promptly after any termination or expiration of this Agreement, but you understand that deleted content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time whilst deletion is carried out. As set forth in Section 2.e, you are solely responsible for creating any back-ups of Your Data for your own purposes.
    5. Effect of Termination. Upon any termination or expiration of this Agreement: (a) you and your Users must immediately cease using Workplace; (b) at the Disclosing Party's request, the Receiving Party will promptly return or delete any of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information in its possession; and (c) the following Sections will survive: 1.c (Restrictions), 2 (Your Data and Obligations) (other than Facebook's license to Your Data in Section 2.a), 3.b (Aggregate Data), 3.c (Legal Disclosures and Third Party Requests), 5 (Confidentiality) through 12 (Definitions). Except as may be specified in this Agreement, either party's exercise of any remedy, including termination, is without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement, by law or otherwise. If you downgrade your Workplace Premium instance to Workplace Standard, then you will be required to terminate this Agreement and Your Data will become subject to the Workplace Standard terms, and the obligation on Facebook to delete Your Data under Section 9.d will not apply.
  10. Other Facebook Accounts.
    1. Personal Accounts. For the avoidance of doubt, Workplace accounts are distinct from any personal Facebook account that Users may create on the consumer Facebook service ("Personal FB Accounts"). Personal FB Accounts are not subject to this Agreement, but rather are subject to Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and Data Policy, each between Facebook and the relevant User. You agree that, unless allowed by Laws, you will not log into your Users' Personal FB Accounts or request access to their login credentials for such accounts.
    2. Workplace and Ads. We will not show third-party advertising to your Users on Workplace and we will not use Your Data to provide or target advertising to your Users or to personalize your Users' experience on their Personal FB Accounts. Facebook may, however, make in-product announcements about features or functionality related to Workplace.
  11. General.
    1. Changes. Facebook may change terms of this Agreement and policies referenced in or incorporated by this Agreement at any time, including but not limited to the Data Processing Addendum, Data Security Addendum, Acceptable Use Policy and Privacy Shield Addendum. Facebook may change this Agreement (including the Data Processing Addendum, Data Security Addendum, Acceptable Use Policy, and Privacy Shield Addendum) at any time by providing you with notice by email, through the service or by other reasonable means ("Change"). By continuing to use Workplace fourteen (14) days after our notice, you consent to such Change.
    2. Governing Law. This Agreement and your and your Users' use of Workplace as well as any claim that might arise between you and us, are governed by, and must be construed in accordance with, the laws of the United States and the State of California, as applicable, without giving effect to their principles of conflicts of law. Any claim, cause of action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or Workplace must be commenced exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in San Mateo County, and each party hereby consents to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
    3. Entire Agreement. This Agreement (which includes the Privacy Shield Addendum, the Data Processing Addendum, the Data Security Addendum, and Acceptable Use Policy) is the entire agreement between the parties regarding Workplace and supersedes any prior representations or agreements relating to Workplace. Headings are for convenience only, and terms such as "including" are to be construed without limitation. This Agreement is written in English (U.S.), which will control over conflicts in any translated version.
    4. Waiver and Severability. Failure to enforce a provision will not be deemed a waiver; waivers must be in writing signed by the party claimed to have waived. Any terms or conditions in any Customer purchase order or business form will not modify this Agreement and are hereby expressly rejected, and any such document will be for administrative purposes only. If any provision of this Agreement is adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, invalid or otherwise contrary to law, such provision will be interpreted so as to best accomplish its intended objectives and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, amendments must be in writing and signed by authorized representatives by both parties or as appropriate, agreed through electronic means.
    5. Publicity. Any press release, publicity or public announcement about the parties' relationship requires the prior written approval of both parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (a) within your own company, you may publicize or promote use of Workplace during the Term (e.g., to encourage User adoption), subject to Facebook's brand usage guidelines provided from time to time, and (b) Facebook may reference your status as a Workplace customer in conferences, presentations and other non-public settings.
    6. Assignment. Neither party may assign this Agreement or its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party, except that Facebook may assign this Agreement without consent to any of its Affiliates or in connection with a merger, reorganization, acquisition, or other transfer of all or substantially all of its assets or voting securities. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party's permitted successors and assigns. Non-permitted assignments are void and will create no obligations on Facebook.
    7. Independent Contractor. The parties are independent contractors. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and neither party has authority to bind the other.
    8. No Third Party Beneficiaries. Save as set out in the Privacy Shield Addendum, this Agreement benefits only Facebook and Customer and there are no intended third party beneficiaries, including any Users.
    9. Notices. Any notice under this Agreement must be in writing. Except as set forth in Section 9.b, Customer must send any notices to Facebook at the following address (as applicable): in the case of Facebook Ireland Limited, to 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, Attn: Legal, Workplace and, in the case of Facebook Inc, to 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025 USA, Attn: Legal, Workplace. Facebook may send notices to the email address on Customer's account. Facebook may also provide operational notices regarding Workplace or other business-related notices through messages to Users within Workplace or conspicuous posting within Workplace.
    10. Subcontractors. Facebook may use subcontractors and permit them to exercise Facebook's rights under this Agreement, but Facebook remains responsible for compliance of any such subcontractor with this Agreement.
    11. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement if the delay or failure is due to unforeseen events that occur after the signing of this Agreement and that are beyond the reasonable control of such party, such as a strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of power or telecommunications or data networks or services, or refusal of a license or authorization by a government agency or entity.
    12. Third Party Websites. Workplace may contain links to third-party websites. This does not imply our endorsement of any website and we are not responsible for the actions, content, information, or data of third-party websites or actions or any link contained in them, or any changes or updates to them. Third-party websites may provide their own terms and conditions of use and privacy policies that apply to you and your Users and your use of such third-party websites is not governed by this Agreement.
    13. Export Control. In use of Workplace, you agree to comply with all export and import laws and regulations of the United States and other applicable jurisdictions. Without limiting the foregoing: (a) you represent and warrant that you are not listed on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted parties; (b) you are not subject to any UN, U.S., EU, or any other applicable economic sanctions or trade restrictions; and (c) you do not have operations in a country subject to comprehensive U.S. trade sanctions.
    14. Conditions on Governmental Entity Use.

Do not accept this Agreement if you cannot make the representations in this Section 11.n (Conditions on Governmental Entity Use). If a Governmental Entity accepts this Agreement in violation of this Section 11.n (Conditions on Governmental Entity Use), Facebook may elect to terminate this Agreement immediately, or the parties may enter into a separate mutually agreeable and enforceable agreement or may mutually agree to modify this Agreement, and execute such a modification.
    15. No Agency. You acknowledge and agree that any third party reseller that facilitates access to Workplace is not an agent or authorized representative of Facebook, and that Facebook is not bound by any representations or statements made by a third party reseller
