Likewise, by accessing, purchasing, or using the Service, you agree that you have read and understand the privacy terms associated with the Service, as presented to you herein or otherwise made available on the Site. These Terms together with all additional and related terms as referenced herein are or published to the Site as incorporated by reference into these Terms, collectively, the “Agreement”

The term you as used in these Terms means either an individual utilizing any of the Service in his or her individual capacity or the company, organization or other entity (a “Legal Entity”) affiliated with an individual utilizing the Service on behalf of such Legal Entity. If you accept or agree to these Terms on behalf of a Legal Entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that Legal Entity to these Terms and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that Legal Entity. 

We encourage you to review these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Service following modifications made to these Terms or any of the policies referenced in this Agreement constitutes your acceptance of those changes.

1. Use Rights.

1.1. Ziva Face Trainer Service. 

The Ziva Face Trainer Service is a cloud service that enables customers to upload static mesh models of character heads (human or otherwise) to the Service, and then download a fully rigged and animate-ready “trained” version of a character head. In order to use these Created Materials.

Subject to your compliance with these Terms and ongoing payment of all applicable fees, Unity grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable license to access and use the Service (including the Software) solely for your internal use to develop, share, and distribute the Created Materials as incorporated in Your Projects. The foregoing license is subject to your obligation to not license Your Projects in a manner that is inconsistent with this Agreement, including particularly in a manner that impacts Unity’s intellectual property rights. 

Your use of the Service and your further utilization of the Created Materials, in particular, may include, be bundled with and/or require your separate purchase of other Unity software or services.  Access to any such software or Service is subject to separate terms and conditions as stated on our Sites (or as otherwise provided to you by Unity) and may require payment of additional fees. 

1.1 Reservation of Rights.

Except as otherwise set forth in this Section 1, Unity retains all right, title and interest in and to the Service and Unity reserves all rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms. Further, Unity reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Service at any time.

1.2. Your Materials.

In using the Service, you grant Unity a limited, worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable right to use, store, reproduce, and transmit Your Materials for the sole purpose of providing the Service and producing the Created Materials.  When you provide information about Your Materials, you authorize Unity to use that information for the purpose of providing the Service, including (as applicable) for determination that files have been updated or that a new build should be initiated, or in connection with addressing support inquiries.

You will be administratively and financially responsible for obtaining any release, consent, license, or other right (collectively “Consents”) required for Unity to access, copy, modify, and compile the intellectual property, source code or other materials and tools provided by you, and Your Materials. Any costs associated with obtaining Consents are not included in the fees and are your sole responsibility. To the extent that any of Your Materials constitute or contain any Personal Data, you make those further assurances to Unity as described in the Privacy section below. Further, you represent and warrant that you own or have sufficient rights to Your Materials as necessary for your use of the Service as contemplated in this Agreement. 

1.3. Ziva Account Required.

In order to use the Service, you must register for a Ziva Account on our Site.  To create a Ziva Account, you will be required to provide certain information, and you will establish a username and a password. 

You agree to provide complete information during registration and keep such information up to date. Unity reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party and to take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Unity of any unauthorized use of your account.

You may cancel your Ziva Account at any time by reaching out to us at humans@zivadynamics.com (or by contacting your Unity account manager, as applicable). Canceling your Ziva Account does not relieve you of the obligation to pay any and all remaining amounts owing for your existing Ziva subscriptions and use of the cloud service; however, if you cancel your Ziva Account you may no longer be able to access the Created Materials from our Site. Unity has no obligation to retain Your Materials or Created Materials beyond the period we determine in our sole discretion (such period not to be unreasonably short or arbitrary). We encourage you to make regular backups of such materials in your own systems.
