WHAT WE DO
prooV is a SaaS platform (the “Platform”) that streamlines the pilot process by facilitating proof of concept demonstrations and evaluation (each a “POC”) between those certain Independent Software Vendors which sign up for the Platform (“POC Partners”) and enterprises looking to gain greater access to proven technology. The Platform facilitates the open communication and discovery process which allows both the POC Partners seeking opportunities and the enterprises seeking solutions and innovations to cooperate, coordinate and enter into mutually beneficial agreements. Simply put, we put you in direct communication with POC Partners so that you can cooperate and find successful solutions (collectively, the “Standard Services”). In addition to the Standard Services, You may opt to subscribe to certain additional premium services and features offered by us which interoperate with the Standard Services (respectively, the “Subscription” and the “Premium Services”). Premium Services are listed on our Website and may include inter alia, at our sole discretion, and as may be amended from time to time: (i) Custom Database/Deep Mirroring Services, which enable you to input your own data, datasets, use customized data sets and generate mirrored datasets of your proprietary data (ii) Benchmarking Services, which provide you with customized generated data structures; (iii) Testing Environments/API Testing, which enable you to create testing environments wherein you can fully simulate the behavior of customized generated data structures or APIs in your production environment and analyze Key Performance Indicators (the “KPI Suites”) with respect to POCs under evaluation (the “Data”); (iv) Scouting Subscriptions, through which we may identify potential POC Partners who match your needs and recommend them to you; and (v) server and network storage services, which enable implementation and integration of Premium Services with third party web applications and functionalities that interoperate with our Platform.
If you register to the Platform and use it through the AWS, you will be required to share with prooV a link to your AWS server and allow us to duplicate it for the purpose of provisioning you the Services. Please note, prooV will use the link provided only for the purpose of providing the Services it offers and will deploy the dedicated server in Region 1 (i.e. a US region in AWS). If there is any restriction in doing so which applies to your company you should inform prooV in advance. prooV has no knowledge and does not conduct any investigation in order to determine the applicable regulations which apply to your Company.
Users must complete the registration process and create a user account in order to use the Platform and Services offered (respectively, the “Registered Users” and the “Account”). Users will be required to provide us basic information upon registration, including but not limited to a user name, passwords, phone number, email and the name of your company or entity. If you deploy the Service through AWS you will be required to provide us with a link to your current AWS server which you wish prooV to use so as to provide the Service. Additionally, you shall undergo a certain certification and authentication process, during which we may request additional information. Your cooperation with the authentication and certification is a condition to the right to use our Services and the access granted under these Terms. The initial user registering his Account shall be automatically designated as the sole account administrator (the “Admin”). The Admin may authorize, subject to our approval, additional Users to access the Account in order to use the Services under this Agreement as provided therein (“Authorized Users”). The Admin shall be responsible to manage the Authorized Users and shall be liable for any act or omission by such Authorized Users with respect to the Services under this Agreement. Authorized Users shall agree individually to the terms of this Agreement and shall be named and receive a personal login and password which should be maintained securely by the Admin from unauthorized use and may not be shared. If the Admin wishes to add Authorized Users, additional fees may be required as set forth in the Order Form. Once the Account has a designated Admin no other Authorized User shall be permitted to register as an administrator. Once you set up the Account, you may create a POC, you may choose to set the setting for such POC as “public”, which will allow all POC Partners to view and apply to participate in your POC, or as “private”, which will allow only the POC Partners you invite to view or apply to participate in your POC. In creating the POC you may be asked to provide information including but not limited to a description of the POC, the POC environment, and instructions to POC Partners. After completing the process for creating the POC, You may publish the POC on the Platform. You may accept or reject any application by any POC Partner and may interact with POC Partners, via the Platform messaging system, in your sole discretion. You acknowledge and agree that any and all interaction between you and any POC Partner through the Services under this Agreement or otherwise is at your own risk. We are not liable or responsible for any agreement, breach or undertaking by or between you and any POC Partner.
