DSplus shall provide Dealer with IDs and passwords to access and use the DSP Service. All IDs must be safeguarded at all times. The IDs may not be used by any party other than Authorized Users without the prior written consent of DSplus. Dealer acknowledges that DSplus may, from time to time, monitor the logon times and usage under each ID for the purpose of verifying that the Dealer and its permitted users are the sole holders and users of the IDs and are in compliance with this Agreement. Dealer shall be responsible for all usage of the DSP Service under its IDs, whether authorized or unauthorized by Dealer, except to the extent caused by a negligent act by DSplus.
Dealer agrees that it shall not use any persons, means, devices or arrangements to commit fraud, exceed its permitted access to the DSP Service, interfere with other users or falsify or manipulate results or information generated or collected in connection with the DSP Service. Dealer may not resell or charge for access to or use of the DSP Service. Dealer shall be solely responsible for all actions of its employees and persons who gain access to the DSP Service through Dealer.

- Proprietary Rights.
As between DSplus and you, DSplus has all rights, title, interest, ownership and proprietary rights in and to the DSP System and all associated technology, processes, know-how, instructions, training materials, documentation, and all improvements and enhancements thereto. DSplus’s rights include, but are not limited to, the DSP System and any patent rights (including but not limited to patent applications and disclosures), copyrights, trademark rights, trade secret rights, and any other intellectual property right recognized in any country or jurisdiction in the world, as well as the content and related services. The DSP System is protected both by United States law and international treaty provisions. Any improvements, enhancements or modifications to the DSP Service created, suggested or requested by Dealer, including any and all trademarks, patents, copyrights or trade secrets in connection therewith (collectively, “Improvements”), shall be automatically assigned to, and owned by, DSplus. To the extent any Improvements are not automatically assigned to DSplus, Dealer agrees to take all reasonable measures, at DSplus’s expense, to perfect such rights in DSplus. Dealer will not remove or obscure any copyright, trademark or patent notices that appear on the DSP Service or its output. Dealer shall take no position contrary to, or that would diminish, the ownership rights set forth herein. All rights not specifically granted to Dealer hereunder are retained by DSplus and its licensors.
- Payment Terms.
You shall be responsible for paying the fees associated with the use of the DSP System as set forth from time to time by DSplus. The fees may be contingent, in part, upon the contribution and/or participation in related services by the Toyota Dealer Association to which you may belong. Rates may increase based upon the participation level of such Toyota Dealer Association. For these and other reasons, you acknowledge that these fees may increase at any time. In the event of collection enforcement, you will be liable for any costs associated with such collection, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney fees, court costs and collection agency fees. Your access to any portion of the DSP System or related application may be suspended if you have not made timely payment for access. DSplus reserves the right to impose a fee for restoration of any suspended accounts. You are solely responsible for the payment of any sales taxes, fees, tariffs or other such levies resulting from your access to, or use of, the DSP System.
DSplus will use commercially reasonable best efforts to maintain physical and technical security procedures for the DSP System provided however that DSplus is not responsible for any acts of third parties and cannot warrant that the Services will be completely secure from interference or disruption by factors outside DSplus’s control.

If any portion of the DSP System fails to operate, it is your responsibility to immediately notify DSplus of such failure.

In the event that you do not meet any of the above requirements, DSplus may, at its option, remove any non-compliant Dealer Data and/or terminate this Agreement.
(c) Ads. Dealer may only use the DSP Service for a Dealer’s own Toyota dealerships. Dealers may use the DSP Service to create advertisements (“Ads”) using the content provided by the DSP Service (the “DSP Content”), use the Dealer Data to deliver the Ads to customers, manage campaigns for such Ads and customers and access reporting on the performance of such campaigns.

Information you access or receive pursuant to this Agreement, including but not limited to information about the DSP System and/or DSplus services is DSplus’s “Confidential Information.” Each party agrees to take reasonable steps to protect the other party’s Confidential Information, including not disclosing it to third parties except as otherwise permitted by this Agreement or required by law.

- Consent to Use of Dealer Data.
Dealer owns and shall retain all rights in and to the Dealer Data. DSplus does not acquire any interest in the Dealer Data by virtue of providing the DSP Service. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Dealer hereby grants DSplus a limited license during the term of this Agreement to use the Dealer Data solely to provide the DSP Service to Dealer, including delivering Ads to customers or other third parties as authorized by Dealer. Dealer shall be responsible for all content and use of the Dealer Data, and shall make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Dealer Data is accurate, up to date and maintained on a regular basis. DSplus may use the Dealer Data in order to create, use and disclose aggregate statistics, provided that, any such use will not publicly identify Dealer or be used to target Dealer or its customers based upon their status as such.
- Term and Termination.
In addition to any right or remedy that may be available to DSplus under this Agreement or applicable law, DSplus may suspend, limit or terminate your account, or all or a portion of your access to the DSP Service, at any time with or without notice and with or without cause. In addition, DSplus may share certain information with the Toyota Dealers Association of which you are a member.
Further, DSplus may terminate this Agreement if it no longer possesses the rights to provide the DSP Service to Dealer or no longer has a relationship with Toyota or an applicable Toyota Dealer Association. You may terminate your use of the DSP Service at any time upon thirty (30) days prior written notice.
DSplus may suspend all or a portion of Dealer’s access to the DSP Service or delivery of the Ads in the event that DSplus reasonably believes that continued access could expose DSplus to liability to third parties or harm the DSP Service. DSplus shall make commercially reasonable efforts to provide Dealer with prior notice of such actions or notice promptly thereafter, and shall restore such access promptly upon resolution of the matter.
