Customer terms of use

Version v3 – January 2024


These TestGorilla Terms of Service (hereafter the “Terms”), outline the terms regarding Your use of the Services and are an integral part of the agreement between you (“you”, “your,” or “Customer) and TestGorilla B.V. (“TestGorilla”, “us”, “we”, or “our”). You or TestGorilla may also be referred to individually as a “Party” and together as “Parties” in these Terms. An “Affiliate” means any company or other entity, whether or not a legal person, which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under joint control with that person. For the purpose of this definition, “control” means (a) any direct or indirect ownership of over 50% of the ownership, or (b) in the absence of such ownership interest, the power to direct or cause the direction of the management and set the policies of such company or entity.

These Terms are a legally binding contract between You and TestGorilla. If you do not agree with these Terms, do not register for a TestGorilla account, or purchase or use Services. By using or accessing the Services, or registering for a TestGorilla account, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you use the Services on behalf of an entity, you agree to these Terms for that entity and represent and warrant to TestGorilla that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms, unless that entity has a separate paid contract in effect with TestGorilla, in which event the separate paid contract governs your use of the Services.

In these Terms, we refer collectively to these Terms, the Data Processing Agreement (attached as a separate annex to these Terms), the Service Level Agreement (“SLA”), the Security Measures and the Cookie Policy (jointly the “Documentation”) available on our website (“Website”) and applicable ordering documents (“Order Form”, as defined below) as the “Agreement.”

To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, the new Terms will take immediate effect, and your continued use of the Services following our posting or notice of the changes will constitute your acceptance of the updated Terms.

15.2. If we are required by applicable law to give additional notice, changes will automatically take effect regarding your use of the relevant Services upon expiry of such notice period (unless you terminate during that period) or upon your earlier acceptance of such changes. If you have a right under applicable law to terminate this Agreement upon receipt of such notice, you will not be charged a fee for early termination where you exercise that right under applicable law, but any fees previously paid by you are non-refundable and any fees owing continue to remain due and payable.

16. Miscellaneous

16.1. Compliance with Law Assurances. Both Parties warrant to comply with all applicable anti-corruption, anti-money laundering, sanctions, export controls, and other international trade laws, regulations, and governmental orders of the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, the United Nations, or any other relevant governmental authority, including obtaining all necessary licenses and/or government approvals. Parties will promptly notify each other in writing of any actual or potential violation of such applicable laws and regulations in connection with the use of the Services and Parties shall take all appropriate actions to remedy or resolve such violations, including any actions requested by the other Party.

16.2. No Class Actions.  To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, neither Customer nor TestGorilla shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against other customers or pursue any claim as a representative of a class action or in a private attorney general capacity.

16.3. US Government Terms.  The Services, including any related software and technology, are provided solely in accordance with these Terms for United States government end use. If you (or any users of your Customer Application) are an agency, department, or other entity of the United States government, the use, duplication, reproduction, release, modification, disclosure, or transfer of the Services, or any related documentation, is restricted by these Terms. All other use is prohibited and no other rights other than those provided in these Terms are conferred.

16.4. Independent Contractors.  The Parties are independent contractors. No provision of this Agreement will or shall be deemed to create an association, trust, partnership, joint venture or other entity or similar legal relationship between TestGorilla and Customer, or impose a trust, partnership or fiduciary duty, obligation, or liability on or with respect to such entities. Neither Party will have any rights, power, or authority to act or create an obligation, express or implied, on behalf of another party except as specified in the Agreement.

16.5. Force Majeure.  Neither Party shall be liable to the other for any failure to perform any of its obligations (except payment obligations) under the Agreement during any period in which such performance is delayed by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, such as fire, flood, war, embargo, strike, riot, terrorism, epidemic or pandemic, or the intervention of any governmental authority (a “Force Majeure”). In such an event, however, the delayed Party must promptly provide the other Party with written notice of the Force Majeure. The delayed Party’s time for performance will be excused for the duration of the Force Majeure, but if the Force Majeure event lasts longer than ninety (90) days, then the other Party may immediately terminate, without any liability, in whole or in part, the Agreement by giving written notice to the delayed Party.

16.6. Transferability and subcontracting.  Neither all nor any part of Customer’s rights or obligations under this Agreement are assignable or transferable by Customer, whether directly or indirectly, without the prior written consent of TestGorilla, and any attempt to do so shall be void, except in case of merger, acquisition or sale of majority of assets. TestGorilla has the right to freely assign all or part of its rights and obligations under the Agreement or to make use of the services of third parties by subcontracting. Subject to the foregoing, the Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

16.7. Entire Agreement.  The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior oral and written understandings, communications, or agreements. General terms and conditions of Customer are not applicable and expressly excluded.

16.8. Severability. If any provision of the Agreement should be found to be void or unenforceable, such provision will be stricken or modified, but only to the extent necessary to comply with the law, and the remainder of the Agreement will remain in full force and will not be terminated.

16.9. Notices. Any notice, request, demand, or other communication to be provided under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be sent by the email addresses provided by each Party, or at such other address as a Party may designate by written notice to the other Party.

16.10. Headings.  The section headings in this Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of the Agreement.

16.11. Publicity.  You grant us the right to use your name, logo, and a description of your use case to refer to you on our website, customer lists, or marketing or promotional materials, subject to your standard trademark usage guidelines expressly provided to us.

16.12. Execution.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument. Each Party agrees that this Agreement and any other documents to be delivered in connection herewith may be electronically signed, and that any electronic signatures appearing on this Agreement or such other documents are the same as handwritten signatures for the purposes of validity, enforceability, and admissibility.

17. Governing law

17.1. The Agreement including these Terms shall be governed by the laws of the Netherlands. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is explicitly excluded.

17.2. The Parties agree that any dispute arising out or relating to the Agreement shall be brought exclusively in the courts in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
