Terms and Conditions
Welcome to Zietra! We truly hope you’ll enjoy the value Zietra delivers to your products and customers. Zietra enables its Customers that have, via our software development kit (“SDK“), integrated Ziatra’s services and technology (the “Zietra Services”) into their products (“Zietra-Enabled Product(s)”) to deliver a personalized experience and functionality to individual end-users as decided and needed by clients of the Zietra-Enabled Product (each, an “End User“) based on the respective End User’s behavior, habits and activity. Activating the Zietra Services within a Zietra-Enabled Product, enables Zietra to collect raw information and data about the corresponding End User (collectively, “Raw Data”) through one or more of the End User’s devices, such as a mobile phone (each a “Device”). Zietra processes and analyzes the Raw Data through the Zietra Services to generate meaningful insights and knowledge (collectively, “User Insights”) and then makes certain portions of the User Insights (e.g., behavioral insights) available to the corresponding Zietra-Enabled Product so it can personalize its experience and functionality to the End User. The type, volume, and nature of the User Insights made available to the Zietra-Enabled Product depends on the User Insights for which the Zietra-Enabled Product has subscribed. The SDK, Zietra Services, Raw Data, and User Insights, as well as Zietra’s provision, processing, and generation of the foregoing, shall collectively and severally be referred to herein as, the “Services”.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING OR USING ANY PART OF THE SERVICES

If you do not accept and agree to be bound hereby, you may not access or use any part of the Services. For any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.

Customer represents, warrants and covenants that it shall only provide, or will make available to Zietra, End User data that does not violate or infringe any applicable law or regulation, or the rights of any third parties.
1.4. Delivery and Acceptance. The SDK, Services, User Insights and any other information or material Zietra provides to you shall be deemed accepted upon Zietra’s making the same available to you by physical or electronic delivery or download or otherwise.

In case of conflict between this Section (Confidentiality) and any other non-disclosure agreement you may have entered into with Zietra, this Section (Confidentiality) shall govern with respect to all matters pertaining to this Agreement.
