Unless otherwise required by applicable law, VYLA is under no obligation to provide new downloads or replacement materials related to any Software You licensed or Service You purchased. Additionally, VYLA may offer and you may use beta versions of the Software or Service that may not work correctly or may work differently than the final version.

Data and System Access: Subscriber owns the Original Data. Use of Software and Service provides Subscriber access to some aspects of VYLA’s data and System. It also requires that VYLA use the Subscriber’s Original Data. Subscriber represents and warrants that it owns the Original Data or that it has the right to provide VYLA with the Original Data, grant the necessary licenses in this EUSA, and to be treated as the owner of the Original Data by VYLA.

Definitions: “access” means any use or implementation or any permission to use or implement; “data” means any information or combination of information, including information protected by intellectual-property rights, like copyright; “System” means any software, hardware, firmware, network, or any combination thereof provided, used, owned, leased, or implemented by VYLA or under its direction or control; “Original Data” means data gathered by or created by Subscriber or on behalf of Subscriber without using the System, Software, or Service that is inputted by Subscriber or on behalf of Subscriber into the System, Service, or Software.

VYLA’s data includes Computational Data and Hosted Data. Any access to Software, Service, Computational Data, Hosted Data, or System given to Subscriber by VYLA is for Subscriber’s own use. Subscriber cannot provide any third-party access to Hosted Data. Subscriber may request that VYLA provide a third party with temporary access to Hosted Data for limited purposes related to helping Subscriber run its business. VYLA will determine whether to grant temporary access on a case-by-case basis, and VYLA is under no obligation to grant that temporary access. Any access of Software, Computational Data, Hosted Data, Service, or System by a third party that is beyond the access provided in this EUSA is without authorization or exceeds authorized access as defined in 18 U.S.C. § 1030(a)(2)(C). Nothing in this provision is meant to preclude or prevent Subscriber from complying with any applicable laws or participating in government-sponsored programs meant to support, improve, or study the dairy industry or dairy farming.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, VYLA does acknowledge that certain categories of third parties—who do not compete with VYLA—are pre-approved as third-parties that Subscriber can share Hosted Data with, assuming those third parties are not sharing the Hosted Data with competitors of VYLA:

  • Milk Recording organizations for purposes of regular milk testing and herd improvement;
  • Consultants, veterinarians, and nutritionists using analyzer version of VYLA programs and services;
  • Universities for research purposes; and
  • Other dairy industry companies, such as genetic or pharmaceutical companies, offering data-driven advice back to the farm.

As part of this pre-approval, VYLA reserves the right to request, upon reasonable notice, a list of third parties that Subscriber has shared Hosted Data with. VYLA will give at least 30-days’ notice when requesting such a list and will not make excessive requests during the subscription or license period. VYLA may decide to never exercise this right. VYLA will not share this list with other dairies or farmers. VYLA will inform Subscriber if any particular third party that otherwise qualifies under this pre-approval program is no longer pre-approved. In addition, based on its own criteria, VYLA may inform Subscriber that previously disclosed or pre-approved third parties are no longer pre-approved or authorized to receive Computational Data or Hosted Data without VYLA’s express permission before disclosure or sharing, in accordance with the other data-sharing provisions of this EUSA.

Definitions: “Computational Data” means data produced, processed, organized, or formatted by VYLA, the System, the Service, or the Software, even if that data incorporates, is based on, is related to, arises out of, is a copy of, or uses Original Data; and “Hosted Data” means any data maintained or found on the System or otherwise maintained or stored by VYLA.

Subject to the VYLA Privacy Policy, including its anonymity provisions, Subscriber grants VYLA a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to use, share, copy, and sublicense the Original Data.

VYLA owns the Computational Data. VYLA grants Subscriber a limited, non-exclusive, and worldwide license to use the Computational Data in the operation of its business—this license expires upon the expiration of this EUSA. Subscriber does not claim any ownership interest in the Computational Data, and to the extent Subscriber has any ownership interest in the Computational Data—despite the existence of this provision—Subscriber assigns any and all interest to VYLA. To the extent any such interest cannot legally be assigned, Subscriber grants VYLA a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to use, copy, share, and sublicense any such unassignable interest. If VYLA, its Affiliates, contractors, and vendors share Computational Data with other entities or persons, that data would be anonymous—it could not be used to identify the Subscriber.

VYLA also creates and maintains databases that are governed by Sui Generis Database Rights. VYLA owns all Sui Generis Database Rights in any database hosted, produced, created, originated, formed, or formatted using the System, Service, or Software and in any database hosted, produced, created, originated, formed, or formatted on or in the Software, Service, or System. To the extent that Subscriber owns any part of these Sui Generis Database Rights—despite the existence of this provision—Subscriber assigns them to VYLA. If Subscriber is not able to legally assign these rights, Subscriber grants VYLA a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to use, copy, share, and sublicense these rights. VYLA grants Subscriber a personal, worldwide, non-exclusive, and royalty-free license to use and download any copyrighted databases or databases protected by Sui Generis Database Rights in the form of data reports or data exports; this license expires upon the termination of this EUSA.

Definitions: “Sui Generis Database Rights” means any rights—excluding copyright—derived from Directive 96/9/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 March 1996 on the legal protection of databases, as amended or succeeded, in addition to any other equivalent rights anywhere in the world.  

VYLA also maintains or has access to third-party data. Subscriber does not have any right to third-party data. Nor does anything in this EUSA give Subscriber the right to use the System, Service, or Software to access, obtain, or copy third-party data.

Definition: “third-party data” means any data inputted, created, or gathered by a party that is not Subscriber or VYLA, unless that data is inputted, created, or gathered by a third party on behalf of Subscriber.

Waiver of warranties regarding data: Any data provided by VYLA to Subscriber—including Original Data, Computational Data, and Hosted Data—is provided on an as-is basis and without any warranties.

Termination of access: Subscriber’s access of the System, Service, and Software terminates upon termination of this EUSA. Subscriber has the right to request in writing a copy of its Original Data at any time—while this EUSA is in effect—and within 45 days of termination of this EUSA. Subscriber understands that the Original Data will not necessarily be provided in the form that it is found in the System, Service, or Software or as presented by the Software, System, or Service.
