Protection of Customer Data

Waylay will maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality, and integrity of Customer Data. Those safeguards will include, but will not be limited to, measures for preventing access, use, modification or disclosure of Customer Data by Waylay personnel except:
Your Customer Data remains your ownership at all times. Only when you explicitly share Customer Data with other Users of the Services, Waylay is and shall be granted a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sub licensable and transferable right to use, process, store, copy, reproduce, reformat, translate, modify, and create derivative works of your Customer Data, including all related intellectual property rights, in connection with Waylay’s provision of the Services.

Waylay shall respond to enquiries of support from a Customer utilizing the contacts set forth below as soon as reasonably possible. Responding to enquiries of Customers and Users who have accepted this Agreement but do not have an Account may be less expedient, or may not occur at all.
The contacts for all enquiries of support are via a Waylay ticketing system, as per agreement with the Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you purchased access to the Waylay Services from a Reseller, then first-line technical support will be provided by the Reseller and not Waylay.
The Services and the Website are owned and operated by Waylay.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Waylay hereby grants you a non-exclusive license, with no right to sublicense, to make use of the aforementioned Waylay Services.
