SumoQuote Inc. Terms & Conditions, Last Updated: June 29th, 2023
Welcome to SumoQuote, the online quoting and sales software registered in Alberta, Canada and located at 2435 22 St NE, Calgary, AB, Canada, T2E8K8 (referred to in this document as ‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘SumoQuote’). We are excited to have you as a user of our product and services. The following terms and conditions (collectively, these ‘Terms of Service’) apply to your use of SumoQuote including any applicable free trials, any content, functionality and services offered on or via SumoQuote (the ‘Services’). We want to keep our relationship with you as lean and informal as possible, but please read these Terms of Service carefully before you start using SumoQuote, because by signing up to the Services and completing your registration, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Service. Should you disagree with any of the provisions herein, you must not use the Services, but please let us know at email@example.com. We’ll be happy to hear your comments and suggestions.
SumoQuote reserves the right to update the Services and these Terms of Service from time to time, at our discretion and without notice. Nevertheless, this document is public on the SumoQuote website (‘Website’), and you will be able to track the changes for any new version. Your continued use of the Services following the publishing of updated Terms of Service means that you accept and agree to the changes. These Terms of Service were last updated on November 14th, 2022. They are effective between you and SumoQuote as of the date you accepted them (‘Effective Date’).
We’re working hard on improving SumoQuote, but we can’t guarantee that the Services will be up and running 24/7. We also reserve the right to suspend or restrict access to some features to users, including in the case of system failure, maintenance, repair or reasons beyond our control. In any case, we will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Services is unavailable at any time or for any period. To access the Services you have to register by entering your email address and choosing a password as part of our security procedures. You must treat such information as confidential, not disclosing it to any third party. There is a password reset procedure in case you forget your password, but please notify us of any breach of security. We highly recommend you choose a strong password (e.g. ‘itslongWITHCAPSand99numbers!!’) and you log out from your account at the end of every session. We will not be responsible for any loss or disclosure of your data resulting from your use of the Services, including from your failure to adequately secure your log-in credentials.
It is a condition of your use of the Services that all the information you provide on the Services is correct, current and complete. In the future, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. As is common for online services, we reserve the right to disable any user account, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any provision of these Terms of Service.
You shall use the Services for your internal business purposes as contemplated by these Terms of Service and shall not: (i) tamper with the security of the Services or with the accounts of any of our other customers, (ii) log into a server or account that you are not authorized to access, (iii) attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of the Services or to breach the security or authentication measures without proper authorization; (iv) render any part of the Services unusable; (v) lease, distribute, license, sell or otherwise commercially exploit the Services or make the Services available to a third party other than as contemplated in these Terms of Service; (vi) use the Services for timesharing or service bureau purposes or otherwise for the benefit of a third party; or (vii) provide to third parties any evaluation or Free Trial (as defined below) version of the Services without our prior written consent.
In addition, you agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations in your use of the Services and that in particular you will not use the Services to communicate any message or material that (i) is libelous, harmful to minors, obscene or constitutes pornography; (ii) infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party or is otherwise unlawful; or (iii) would otherwise constitute or encourage conduct that could constitute a criminal offense under any applicable law or regulation.
We use SSL encrypted browsing for all logged-in users, but we cannot guarantee that all use will be secure. We also do not guarantee that the Services or any content provided on the Services is error free.
SumoQuote may make all or part of the Services available to you on a trial basis free of charge (‘Free Trial’). The Free Trial shall begin when you submit a registration to us and shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the Free Trial expiration date specified by us upon receiving your registration, or (ii) the date you choose to pay a subscription fee to access the Services. The Services are provided “as-is” and without warranty of any kind during the Free Trial.
If you agree to pay the subscription fee to access one of the SumoQuote Services, the applicable fee will be charged by SumoQuote to the company or other corporate entity designated by you in accordance with the payment method you have chosen for your purchase in advance, either as a one-off annual payment or on a monthly basis, depending on your chosen subscription, and is non-refundable. If you are paying by credit card, by designating a card to be billed, you confirm that you are authorized to make such purchase and that you are the holder of such card (i.e. that the card is issued in your name). All prices stated on the Website are exclusive of any applicable sales taxes and fees. SumoQuote accepts a variety of different payment methods, so please check the Website for the best way for you to pay.
We will make the Services available to you during the term of your subscription to the Services. You agree that your subscription to the Services is neither contingent upon the delivery of any future functionality or features nor dependent upon any oral or written public comments made by us with respect to future functionality or features.
If you subscribe to either the Heavy or Sumo Services, you may give additional users access to the Services up to the number of permitted users specified in the applicable user management page in the app (‘Users’). The Users may include you and your employees, consultants, contractors and agents. You must ensure that all Users comply with these Terms of Service and you are responsible for such compliance. If you exceed the number of Users permitted by your Services, you will be in breach of these Terms of Service and we will have the right to terminate or suspend your access to the Services or pursue any other remedy available to us.
SumoQuote may change the price for the Services from time to time. In respect of the Services, such changed price will take effect after the expiry of the then current paid for period (i.e. the term that you have already paid for). Any price change will be communicated to you at least 14 days in advance so that you have an opportunity to elect to not renew. If you do not wish to be bound by such changed price relating to your Services you may terminate your subscription to the Services in accordance with the Section of these Terms of Service entitled “Term and termination” below. Your continued use of the Services after the communication of such price change to you constitutes an acceptance of such new price.
Your subscription to the Services will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term unless you terminate your subscription prior to the end of such subscription term in accordance with the Section entitled “Term and termination”. At the time of renewal the payment method you have designated to be charged for the purchase of the Services will automatically be charged our then current fees for the applicable subscription.
Your use of the Services is at your sole risk. The Services are provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’. We disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we are not liable for damages, direct or consequential, resulting from your use of the Services, and you agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims, losses, liability costs and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from your violation of these Terms of Service and/or of any third-party’s rights to the extent that such violation arises from your use of the Services. Because the Services are not error or bug free, you agree that you will use the Services carefully and avoid using the Services in ways which might result in any loss of your or any third party’s property or information.
Nothing in these Terms of Service shall exclude either party’s liability for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
Our Services may contain links to third party websites, products or services that are not owned or controlled by us. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party website or service.
If you use our Services in conjunction with the applications or services of third parties, your use of such applications or services is subject to the terms and conditions specified by those third parties and we assume no responsibility for your use of the same.
These Terms of Service will become effective on the Effective Date and will remain effective until terminated by you or SumoQuote. You may cancel your subscription to the Services at any time by visiting your subscription page, which termination shall have effect at the expiry of the then-current subscription period (e.g. one month or a year). SumoQuote reserves the right to terminate your subscription to the Services or suspend your SumoQuote account at any time in case of unauthorized, or suspected unauthorized use of the Services whether in contravention of these Terms of Service or otherwise. If SumoQuote terminates your subscription to the Services or suspends your SumoQuote account for any of the reasons set out in this section, or you cancel your subscription before the end of the applicable subscription period, then to the maximum extent permitted by law, SumoQuote shall have no liability or responsibility to you, and in no event will SumoQuote refund any unused portion of pre-paid subscription fees.
You and SumoQuote each agree to keep confidential all confidential information provided to it by the other party in connection with these Terms of Service and to protect such confidential information in the same manner as it protects its own confidential information. Neither of you nor SumoQuote will disclose or use any confidential information of the other party for any purpose outside the scope of these Terms of Service except with the disclosing party’s consent or as required by law.

You and SumoQuote agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Services or your use thereof, including our Agreement, shall be determined by mandatory binding arbitration. You agree that the Arbitration Act of Alberta governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and SumoQuote are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class or multi-party action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service and the termination of your subscription to the Services.
You and SumoQuote agree that (a) any claims seeking to enforce, protect, or determine the validity or ownership of any intellectual property rights, and (b) any claims related to allegations of theft, piracy or unauthorized use of the Services are NOT subject to mandatory arbitration. Instead, you and SumoQuote agree that the preceding claims (including but not limited to claims for injunctive or equitable relief) shall be exclusively decided by Courts of competent jurisdiction in Alberta, Canada, and that applicable Alberta and/or Canadian federal law shall govern, without regarding to choice of law principals.
YOU AND SUMOQUOTE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER OR IN ANY REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR PROCEEDING. Further, the arbitrator shall not consolidate any other person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a multi-party or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in any way, then the entirety of this arbitration section shall be null and void. The arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief.
Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within ONE (1) YEAR after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be limited to those fees set forth in the applicable arbitration rules with the remainder paid by SumoQuote. Any arbitration costs or fees deemed ‘excessive’ will be paid by SumoQuote.
You and SumoQuote further agree that applicable laws of Alberta shall exclusively govern any dispute without regard to choice or conflicts of law rules. The sole and exclusive venue for the resolution of any dispute, whether or not subject to mandatory arbitration as described above, shall lie in Alberta.
In the event that these Terms of Service are translated into other languages and there is a discrepancy between the two language versions, the English language version shall prevail to the extent that such discrepancy is the result of an error in translation.
