We may analyze your Customer Data. We may use an anonymized version of your Customer Data (with any personally identifiable information removed) and combine it with data from other sources to look for insights. We may share, publish or sell the results of this kind of analysis.
For example: TrackAbout could create and sell reports that gives benchmarks for how quickly a given kind of asset is commonly picked up after being delivered to an end customer. This information would be aggregated and made anonymous in such a way that a reader of the report could not identify whether or not your Customer Data was combined to create the report.
Another example: TrackAbout could look across all of our clients and determine which types of equipment require the most maintenance. TrackAbout could then write articles in trade publications or sell reports that contain this aggregated data.
Given the very sensitive nature of rental rates, TrackAbout will not provide this kind of analysis for rental rates without explicit written permission from those companies contributing the data. Please contact us to discuss concerns with any other specific types of data.
TrackAbout does not sell Hardware for accessing our Service, but TrackAbout may recommend vendors who do sell Hardware. TrackAbout is not responsible for issues related to the Hardware.

Customer may terminate this agreement with 90 days notice before the next renewal date. Once notice is given, the renewal date will become the cancellation date. The customer is still responsible for paying for the remainder of fees until the cancellation date. If notice is not given within 90 days of the renewal date, then the agreement will automatically renew. If you violate these Terms of Service, TrackAbout may immediately suspend or terminate services until such violation is cured by you to TrackAbout’s reasonable satisfaction. If you believe TrackAbout is in breach of this Agreement, you must notify TrackAbout and specify in detail the nature of the breach. TrackAbout shall undertake to cure the breach within ten (10) days of such notification and, if TrackAbout refuses or is unable to cure the breach within a reasonable time after undertaking such cure, TrackAbout will provide a pro rata refund of the remaining contract that was paid for but not used, as your sole remedy.

TrackAbout reviews its pricing annually and may adjust prices for existing customers once per annum.
Prompt payment to TrackAbout is required of all Customers. Any late payments will be subject to a late fee of 1.5% per month or the largest fee allowed by law, whichever is lower. If any invoice is over 7 days late, TrackAbout reserves the right to suspend the Customer's account, disable some of its features and/or notify Users (beyond just the billing contact) that the account is past due. If any invoice is over 60 days late, TrackAbout reserves the right to change the billing terms of all future invoices to 'due upon receipt.' If any invoice is over 90 days late, TrackAbout reserves the right to terminate your account and delete the Customer Data in your account. If any invoice is in dispute, both parties will make a good faith effort to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. While in dispute, the normal late fees above do not apply.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign the Agreement in its entirety (including all Statements of Work), without consent of the other party, to an Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Customer will keep its billing and contact information current at all times by notifying TrackAbout of any changes. Any purported assignment in violation of this section is void. A party's sole remedy for any purported assignment by the other party in breach of this section will be, at the non-assigning party's election, termination of the Agreement upon written notice to the assigning party. In the event of such a termination by Customer, we will refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all subscriptions after the effective date of termination.
