b)   Upon obtaining login information from the Company and upon receipt of the initial and renewal fees due, if any, Professional may access the member portal (“Portal”) on Company’s website (“Website”). Without prior written consent of Company, Professional may not download, copy, screen share, record, distribute, or in any way remove or share the coaching content and intellectual property on the Website, including, but not limited to, the Portal. Professional may download and use approved branded promotional materials such as brochures, templates, logos and promotional pictures. If Professional is unsure of his or her use and access rights, he or she shall request the access or rights by emailing admin@cialdini.com for confirmation of Professional’s access and Company approval prior to attempting to download, copy, screen share, record, distribute, or in any way remove or share the coaching content and intellectual property on the Website, including, but not limited to, the Portal.

Professional understands and agrees that these Recordings will become the property of Company and will not be returned.

Company may notify Professional of such changes by mail, email or by posting the information on the Website, and such changes shall become effective immediately upon Company’s notification.

5. CONDUCT OF BUSINESS

6. LICENSE TO USE THE ONLINE ON-DEMAND PROGRAM AND PROGRAM MARKS 
a)   Company grants to Professional a limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable and revocable license (without the right to grant sublicenses) to use the content of the official online on-demand program developed by Dr. Robert Cialdini or Company (the “Online On-Demand Program”), including, but not limited to, any workbooks, coaching guides, coaching manuals, scripts and PowerPoint presentations provided by Company for the Certified Professional Program (the “Program Materials”) for personal purposes and for the coaching of Professional’s students. While Professional may use the Online On-Demand Program and the Program Materials for such purposes, Professional is not authorized to certify any person or entity as a Cialdini Certified Professional or any other similar certification using the Cialdini name. Professional may not create products or marketing materials (e.g., videos, books, webinars, DVDs, CDs or the like) using the Program Materials for the content or the basis of the content of other products or materials regardless of whether the products or materials are offered for sale, without the prior written consent of Company. The license granted to Professional is conditioned upon Professional’s compliance with the Terms and the rules and policies developed by Company from time to time for the Certified Professional Program and use of the Program Marks (as defined in Section 7) and the Program Materials.
b)   Professional acknowledges that the Program Materials are the exclusive property of Company, and protected by copyright, trademark and other intellectual property laws, both domestic and international. Nothing in the Terms will be construed as transferring, assigning, or conveying any ownership or proprietary rights to the Program Materials from Company to Professional or any other person or entity. Professional may not remove, alter or obscure any copyright, legal or proprietary notices in or on any portion of the Program Materials. Without the prior written consent of Company, Professional will not duplicate, modify, distribute or otherwise use the Program Materials in any format other than the format in which they were provided to Professional.
c)   Professional has the right to use the Program Materials only as specifically set forth in the Terms. Without the prior written consent of Company, Professional does not have the right to use the Program Materials or any other copyright, trademark, trade name, or other intellectual property asset of Company for other purposes including the following technical uses: (i) creating an archive; (ii) using in a searchable, machine-readable database; (iii) modifying, reverse engineering, decompiling, storing, copying, reproducing or distributing; (iv) creating derivative works (as defined in the U.S. Copyright Law, 17 U.S.C. Section 101 et. seq.); (v) adapting or incorporating into other Program Materials, products, programs or services; or (vi) selling, sublicensing, leasing, time-sharing, publishing, advertising, promoting or broadcasting.
d)   Professional agrees not to loan, transfer, convey, lease or sell any of the Program Materials or resources to any Third Party without the prior written consent of Company. A “Third Party” means any person or entity other than Professional. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Company, in its sole discretion, may permit Professional to share Program Materials with other participants in the Cialdini Certified Professional Program through its Website but no fee or any other form of consideration shall be charged for such sharing. Professional may charge a fee or any other form of consideration to coach a Third Party in the Online On-Demand Program and to assist, train or guide a Third Party about the lessons made available to Professional from the Cialdini Certified Professional Program, but Company, at its sole discretion, shall have the right to instruct Professional regarding maximum fees or other forms of consideration. Additionally, Professional shall follow Company’s written pricing instructions regarding the public offering / advertisements of the Online On-Demand Program. 
e)   With prior written consent of Company, Professional may “customize” the Program Materials. The Program Materials are deemed to have been “customized” if any changes, substantial or not, are made to the Program Materials from the form in which they were provided by Company to Professional. By way of example, the Program Materials are considered “customized” if Professional’s name or logo is added to a page within a workbook, if changes are made to the workbook text or if new handouts are included with the workbook. Any Program Materials “customized” by Professional must be approved in writing by Company before the “customized” Program Materials are used. If the Program Materials are “customized”, any modifications, improvements, changes or additions to the Program Materials, (except any of Professional’s trademarks or trade names) that are in whole or in part derivative of the Program Materials, whether created by Professional, Company or otherwise, will be the sole and exclusive property of Company. Professional assigns and transfers to Company all of Professional’s right, title and interest to any customizations made to the Program Materials.

7.   TRADEMARK
Professional is permitted to promote its affiliation with the Cialdini Certified Professional Program solely for purposes of promoting Professional’s abilities as a coach and as a part of any biographical description of Professional using the following description: “[Professional’s name] is a Cialdini Certified Professional”. Upon prior written consent of Company, Professional may use the “Cialdini Certified Professional” mark and the other marks provided for use to Professional by Company from time to time (collectively, the “Program Marks”) in conjunction with Professional’s own materials and other promotional media solely for purposes of promoting Professional’s abilities as a coach. However, Professional may not alter such Program Marks in color, text or design in any way. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no approval is required for Professional’s use of materials using the Program Marks provided by Company to Professional. The Program Marks may be used only in a manner and to the extent specifically authorized by Company. Company specifically prohibits the use of the Program Marks or any variation of the Program Marks (e.g., Robert B. Cialdini, RC, Cialdini) in any internet domain name, URL, social media name or other identifier or e-mail address, except those provided by Company to Professional. Company reserves the right to obtain the transfer of any unauthorized domain name upon first request and without reimbursement. Professional acknowledges that Professional has no right or license to use Robert B. Cialdini’s name or likeness or any derivatives thereof except as specifically provided in the Terms or as otherwise may be granted in writing by Company.

8.   RELATIONSHIP OF PARTIES
It is the express intention of the Parties that Professional is not a legal employee, agent, joint venturer, franchisee or partner of Company or its affiliates. Nothing in the Terms shall be interpreted or construed as creating or establishing an employment relationship, franchise or agency between Professional and Company or its affiliates. Professional will have no authority to act on or enter into any contract or understanding, incur any liability or make any representation on behalf of Company or its affiliates.

9. QUALITY CONTROL
At any time during the term of the Terms, Company shall have the right to inspect, audit, and listen to Professional’s use of the Program Materials in Professional’s coaching (without any fee or cost imposed by Professional) to determine: (a) the quality of the delivery or presentation; (b) the appropriate use by Professional of the license granted under the Terms; and (c) Professional’s adherence and compliance with the Terms. Company will provide Professional with reasonable notice of its intent to exercise this right and will attempt to use methods or means least burdensome to Professional and Professional’s students in exercising this right. Professional will not use the Program Materials or Program Marks in a manner which is deemed, in the sole discretion of Company, to be detrimental to the good reputations of the Certified Professional Program, Company and/or its affiliates.

10. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
Professional expressly undertakes to retain in confidence all information and know-how transmitted to Professional by Company or that Company has identified as being proprietary and/or confidential or that, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or confidential (“Confidential Information”). Professional will make no use of such Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Professional shall have no obligation to maintain the confidentiality of Confidential Information that (i) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of Professional’s breach of the Terms, (ii) Professional received rightfully from an unaffiliated Third Party prior to its receipt from Company, (iii) Professional received on a non-confidential basis from a Third Party that was not legally or contractually restricted from disclosing such Confidential Information, or (iv) Professional independently developed without reference to any Confidential Information as evidenced by Professional’s written records. Further, Professional may disclose Confidential Information as required by governmental or judicial order, provided Professional gives Company prompt written notice prior to such disclosure and complies with any protective order (or equivalent) imposed on such disclosure. Notwithstanding anything other in the Terms, Professional’s obligations under this Section 10 shall survive the expiration or termination of the Terms.

11.   NON-SOLICITATION OF OTHER PROFESSIONALS
No Self-Promotion. Professional hereby acknowledges and agrees not to solicit other participants in the Cialdini Certified Professional Program for the provision of goods or services by Professional or any other party, regardless of whether the goods and services are being provided for compensation, without the prior written consent of Company. Professional agrees that Professional will not engage in self-promotion of Professional’s services at any Cialdini Certified Professional Program event or in any forum created by Company for the use by participants in the Cialdini Certified Professional Program. In addition, Professional will not organize or create any forum, blog or social media website, regardless of what it may be named or called (e.g., “Leadership Group Discussion”), if it has five (5) or more active participants of the Cialdini Certified Professional Program, for use by participants in the Cialdini Certified Professional Program, without the prior written consent of Company. 

12.   TERMINATION 
a)   The license and other rights granted to Professional hereunder are subject to termination, at Company's sole discretion, by providing written notice to Professional, upon the breach by Professional of any term or condition of this Agreement, and the breach not being cured within fifteen (15) days of Professional receiving written notice of default from Company. If Professional timely cures said breach as determined by Company in its sole discretion, any reoccurrence of the breach, either on the same or substantially similar facts, will negate any further right-to-cure. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if Professional’s breach of this Agreement results in irreparable damage, including reputational damage, to the Program, Company, or any of its respective affiliates, officers, directors, employees, representatives, agents, instructors, vendors or independent contractors, as determined by Company in its sole discretion, Company is not obligated to provide Professional with any opportunity to cure and this Agreement will be immediately terminated upon written notice by Company to Professional.
b)   Company shall be permitted to terminate the rights granted to Professional pursuant to this Agreement if the commercial value of the Program or Company, is impaired by reason of the alleged commission by Professional of any act that is an offense involving moral turpitude under federal, state or local laws or which tends to shock, insult or offend the community or ridicule public morals and decency. In addition, Company may terminate the license and all rights granted to Professional hereunder if Professional takes any action which is disruptive to the other participants' enjoyment of (i) any training event telephonic or otherwise, or (ii) any social media platform that is part of the Training.
c)   Upon termination of the Terms, Professional shall cease and desist from (i) designating or representing himself or herself as a “Cialdini Certified Professional”, (ii) referring to himself or herself as former “Cialdini Certified Professional” or having been trained by Dr. Robert Cialdini or Company, (iii) coaching the Online On-Demand Program or any other Cialdini methods, (iv) using the Program Materials, the Online On-Demand Program or any other materials obtained in any other manner relating to the Cialdini methods for coaching of students or in any other manner, (v) using the Program Marks or the name, image or likeness of Dr. Robert Cialdini. Further, upon Company’s request, Professional shall hand over to Company or destroy all copies of Program Materials or any other materials obtained in any other manner relating to the Cialdini methods and provide written confirmation of same.
