These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms” or “Agreement”) for SignNow (“SignNow” or “Product”) are a legal agreement between you, either an individual or a legal entity (“Customer”), and Barracuda Networks, Inc. (“Barracuda”).
These Terms, along with any other policies or documents referenced herein, govern Customer’s purchase and use of SignNow, both as a signer and originator of documents. Customer’s use of SignNow constitutes its binding legal agreement to these Terms, which are subject to change at any time by Barracuda Networks.
If Customer is not legally able to be bound by these Terms or does not want to consent to these Terms, Customer’s use of SignNow is strictly prohibited.
Barracuda reserves the right at any time to modify, suspend, or discontinue providing the Product or any part thereof in its sole discretion, with prior notice. Any discontinuation will be coterminous with the end of any prepaid term. Barracuda reserves the right at any time to modify these Terms in its sole discretion, without liability to Customer. This Agreement, as amended, will be effective upon use of the SignNow Products for all existing users immediately after posting of any amended terms on the SignNow.com website. Customer agrees to be bound by this Agreement, as modified. If Customer does not agree to any changes to the Terms, they must stop using SignNow and terminate your account immediately. Please review the most current version of this Agreement from time to time so that you will be apprised of any changes.
Software is considered delivered and accepted when made available for download. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Barracuda grants Customer a non-exclusive, non- transferable, non-sublicensable limited and revocable license to use the Product (including but not limited to the client software) solely and exclusively for personal or internal business purposes. Certain third party code may be provided with, or contained in, the Product. The third-party license terms accompanying such code, and not the terms of this Agreement, will govern Customer’s use of such code. Barracuda reserves all other rights to its Products.
The Products and their structure, organization, source code, and documentation contain valuable trade secrets of Barracuda and its licensors, and accordingly Customer agrees not to (and agree not to allow third parties to) (1) sublicense, transfer, or distribute any aspect of the Products or any derivative thereof to any third party, (2) modify, adapt, translate, or prepare derivative works from the Product, (3) decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive source code from the Product, (4) extract portions of the software’s files for use in other applications, or (5) remove, obscure, or alter Barracuda’s or any third party’s trademarks or copyrights or other proprietary rights notices affixed to or contained within or accessed in conjunction with or through the Products.
Customer acknowledges that Barracuda or its licensors own all right, title and interest in and to the software related to the Product, portions thereof, or content provided through or in conjunction with the Product, including without limitation all intellectual property rights. Except for the license granted in these Terms, all rights in and to the Products are reserved, and no implied licenses are granted by Barracuda.
For comments on the Products or ideas on how to improve them, please visit http://university.signnow.com/. Please note that by doing so, Customer also grants Barracuda a perpetual, fully paid, royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable license, with right of sublicense, to use and incorporate Customer’s ideas or comments into the Products (or third party software, content, or services), and to otherwise exploit Customer’s ideas and comments, in each case without further compensation.
Barracuda will automatically bill the subscription in accordance with the product and billing term that the Customer selects. The fees for the Account will be billed from the date elected by Customer, or convert to a Account and will be automatically billed each month or year on the anniversary of the commencement of the Account.
Fees are exclusive of all taxes and Customer is responsible to pay all taxes associated with the use and purchase of SignNow.
Customer acknowledges that the amount billed each period may vary for reasons that include differing amounts due to promotional offers, differing amounts due to changes in Customer’s account, or changes in the amount of applicable sales tax. Customer authorizes Barracuda to bill for such varying amounts. All fees and charges are non-cancelable and nonrefundable and no credits will be given for partially used periods.
If any fee is not paid when due, or Barracuda is unable to process the transaction using the payment information provided, Barracuda reserves the right to revoke access to Customer’s SignNow account and to use its discretion to delete some or all of Customer’s Documents. Any payment not received from Customer by the due date shall accrue (except with respect to charges then under reasonable and good faith dispute), at the lower of one and a half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance per month (being 18% per annum) from the date such payment is due until the date paid. All amounts payable to Barracuda under this Agreement shall be paid by Customer to Barracuda in full without any setoff, recoupment, counterclaim, deduction, debit or withholding for any reason (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as may be required by applicable Law).
Barracuda may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges, from time to time, but we will give Customer advance notice of these changes by email or on the website. It is Customer’s responsibility to keep its contact information and payment information current and updated.
Customer agrees that SignNow shall have the right to, automatically and without notice, renew the Account at the same upon expiration of the license period. Customer agrees that if it fail to pay any renewal fee when due, then Barracuda may terminate the license upon expiration of the current period, and delete any data remaining in SignNow.
Accounts will continue in effect unless and until Customer cancels the Subscription or it is terminated by Barracuda. Customer must cancel the Account before it renews each month or year in order to avoid billing of the next month’s or year’s fees.
Customer may cancel the Account at any time, and cancellation will be effective immediately. Should Customer elect to cancel the Account, Customer will not be issued a refund for the most recently (or any previously) charged monthly or annual fees.
This Agreement is effective upon any use of SignNow and remains in effect until the account is terminated either by Customer or by Barracuda.
Customer’s right to use SignNow automatically terminates if Customer fails to comply with these Terms. Barracuda reserves the right to refuse or discontinue participation to any user at any time at its sole discretion. Customer agrees that, upon such termination, Customer will discontinue all use of the Products and that Customer’s access rights will immediately terminate.
If this Agreement terminates, other than for Customer’s failure to comply, Barracuda will use commercially reasonable efforts to make Customer Documents available for Customer by request for a period of thirty (30) calendar days. Barracuda has no obligation to provide Customer with a copy of your Documents and may remove and discard any Documents. Any termination for convenience by Barracuda will be coterminous with any prepaid subscription term.
The terms of this agreement that by their nature extend beyond termination, including Payment, Warranty, Limitation of Liability, Governing Law, Dispute Resolution, and Venue shall survive termination of this Agreement.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES, THIS SECTION CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS ABOUT HOW TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH BARRACUDA. PLEASE READ IT.
The parties will attempt to resolve any claim, or dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) against Barracuda, its agents, employees, successors, assigns or affiliates (collectively for purposes of this paragraph, "Barracuda" ) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, Barracuda advertising, or any related purchase (a "Dispute" ) through face to face negotiation with persons fully authorized to resolve the Dispute or through mediation utilizing a mutually agreeable mediator, rather than through litigation. If the parties are unable to resolve the Dispute through negotiation or mediation within a reasonable time after written notice from one party to the other that a Dispute exists, the Dispute will be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the then current CPR Rules for Non-Administered Arbitration. The Arbitration will be conducted before three (3) independent and impartial arbitrators. Barracuda will appoint one (1) arbitrator and the other party or parties will appoint one (1) arbitrator. The two (2) appointed arbitrators will then select a third arbitrator, who shall be the presiding arbitrator. The arbitration hearing shall take place in Cupertino, California and will be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act to the exclusion of any inconsistent state laws. The arbitrators shall base their award on the terms of this Agreement, and will follow the law and judicial precedents that a United States District Judge sitting in the county of Santa Clara would apply to the Dispute. The arbitrators shall render their award in writing and will include the findings of fact and conclusion of law upon which their award is based. Judgment upon the arbitration award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. The existence or results of any negotiation, mediation or arbitration will be treated as confidential. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party will have the right to obtain from a court of competent jurisdiction a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction or other equitable relief to preserve the status quo or prevent irreparable harm, although the merits of the underlying Dispute will be resolved in accordance with this paragraph. THE PARTIES AGREE TO ARBITRATE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT PERMIT CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRAL TRIBUNAL MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
Customer may not assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement. Barracuda Networks may freely assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be void.
If a provision is found unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted which as closely as possible reflects Barracuda Networks intent.
The Products and software, including technical data, are subject to U.S. export control laws, including the U.S. Export Administration Act and its associated regulations, and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. Customer agrees to comply strictly with all such regulations and acknowledges that it has the responsibility to obtain licenses to export, re-export, or import Product or software. Barracuda provides multiple versions of the Barracuda Email Security Gateway targeted for specific geographic regions.
Each party agrees to comply with all applicable laws related to such party’s performance of the obligations set forth in this Agreement, including but not limited to any applicable privacy laws.
In the event of a conflict between these terms and any terms referenced herein, these terms will govern.
Customer grants permission to Barracuda to use Customer's logo on the Barracuda Web Site, or any other marketing material when referring to Customer. Customer will retain all title and rights to such logos.
The parties intend that the relationship between them created by this Agreement shall be that of an independent contractor. Neither Barracuda nor Barracuda's agents, employees, or servants shall be deemed to be an employee, agent, or servant of you. Barracuda is not to be considered to be an agent or employee of you for any purpose, and none of the benefits provided by you to your employees are available to Barracuda or Barracuda's employees, agents, or servants. Barracuda shall be solely and entirely responsible for Barracuda's acts and for the acts of Barracuda's agents, employees, servants and subcontractors during the performance of this Agreement.
All terms that by their nature should survive the termination or expiration of the agreement shall survive.
Neither party hereto shall be liable for any failure to timely perform any of its obligations under this agreement if such failure is caused by the occurrence of any event beyond the reasonable control of such party, including without limitation, fire, flood, strikes, hurricanes, and other industrial disputes, failure of raw material, failure of transport, accidents, wars, riots, insurrections, acts of God or orders of any government department or agency.
The section headings used herein are for convenience of reference only and do not form a part of these terms and conditions, and no construction or inference shall be derived therefrom.
The failure of either party to enforce at any time or for any period of time the terms of this document shall not be construed as a waiver of such terms or the rights of such party there- after to enforce each term contained herein.
If any term or condition of this agreement is held void or unenforceable, it shall be severed, and every other provision shall be enforced as if the void or unenforceable term or condition had never been a part hereof.

You may request delivery of paper copies from the party by contacting them directly.
You may decide at any time to receive notices and disclosures in paper format from other parties by notifying the other party by phone, mail, or electronic means.
If you elect to receive required notices and disclosures only in paper format, it will slow the speed at which parties can complete certain steps in transactions with you and delivering services to you because we will need first to send the required notices or disclosures to you in paper format, and then wait until we receive back from you your acknowledgment of your receipt of such paper notices or disclosures.
Unless you tell the party otherwise, parties are able to provide electronically through your SignNow account or other electronic means all required notices, disclosures, authorizations, acknowledgements, and other documents that are required to be provided or made available to you during the course of the parties relationship. You can receive all the disclosures and notices electronically or in paper format through the paper mail delivery system, by providing notice to the other party. If you do not agree with this process, please let the party know and discontinue your use of SignNow.
You can use any means available to contact the party outside of SignNow. If your only contact with the party is through SignNow, then you can reply to transactional emails sent from SignNow to contact the other party in order to let them know of your changes as to how to contact you electronically, to request paper copies of certain information from them, and to withdraw your prior consent to receive notices and disclosures electronically.
