Additionally, the Game Platform may feature links to third-party websites, applications, services, materials, products, recommendations, or other events or activities that are neither owned nor controlled by us (collectively referred to as "Third-Party Services").

2.4 Reservation of Rights. Versus reserves all rights not expressly granted to Host in these Terms.

During the Term and for two years after the termination of the Agreement, Versus shall maintain the applicable Records and make such Records available for inspection/audit and copying by Host at reasonable times and upon reasonable notice. Such audit shall be completed by authorized representatives of Host, including such independent auditors as Host may designate, during usual business hours, to verify the payments required hereunder, and Host and its representatives shall use reasonable efforts to minimize any disruptions to Versus’ business.

  1. Suspension. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, Versus may temporarily suspend Host’s and any User's access to any portion or all of the Services if: (i) Versus reasonably determines that (a) there is a threat or attack on any of the Versus IP, (b) Host’s or any User's use of the Services disrupts or poses a security risk to the Services or to any other Host or vendor of Versus, (c) Host, or any User, is using the Services for fraudulent or illegal activities, (d) subject to applicable law, Host has ceased to continue its business in the ordinary course, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition of its assets, or become the subject of any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, or similar proceeding, or (e) Versus’ provision of the Services to Host or any User is prohibited by applicable law; (ii) any vendor of Versus has, through no fault of Versus, suspended or terminated Versus’ access to or use of any third-party services or products required to enable Host to access the Services (any such suspension a “Service Suspension”). Versus shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide written notice of any Service Suspension to Host and to provide updates regarding resumption of access to the Services following any Service Suspension. Versus shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resume providing access to the Services as soon as reasonably possible after the event giving rise to the Service Suspension is cured. Versus will have no liability for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits), or any other consequences that Host or any User may incur as a result of a Service Suspension.

  1. Confidential Information. From time to time during the term of these Terms, either party may disclose or make available to the other party information about its business affairs, products, confidential intellectual property, trade secrets, third-party confidential information, and other sensitive or proprietary information, whether orally or in written, electronic, or other form or media/in written or electronic form or media that is marked or otherwise designated as “confidential”, “proprietary”, or something similar at the time of disclosure or within a reasonable period of time thereafter and/or would be considered confidential or proprietary by a reasonable person given the nature of the information or the circumstances of its disclosure (collectively, "Confidential Information"). Confidential Information does not include information that, at the time of disclosure is: (i) in the public domain; (ii) known to the receiving party at the time of disclosure; (iii) rightfully obtained by the receiving party on a non-confidential basis from a third-party; or (iv) independently developed by the receiving party. The receiving party shall not disclose the disclosing party's Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to the receiving party's employees who have a need to know the Confidential Information for the receiving party to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required (a) in order to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with applicable law, provided that the party making the disclosure pursuant to the order shall first have given written notice to the other party and made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order; or (b) to establish a party's rights under these Terms, including to make required court filings. On the expiration or termination of the Agreement, the receiving party shall promptly return to the disclosing party all copies, whether in written, electronic, or other form or media, of the disclosing party's Confidential Information, or destroy all such copies and certify in writing to the disclosing party that such Confidential Information has been destroyed. Each party's obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective as of the Effective Date of these Terms and will expire five (5) years from the date first disclosed to the receiving party; provided, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law.   

  1. Participant Information. “Participant Information” means any information provided to Versus by participants in the Game Platform. Versus will own all Participant Information and data captured in the Game Platform. Versus may access, use, retain and disclose Participant Information: (a) in the context of the direct business relationship between Host and Versus, (b) only in accordance with and for the purposes outlined in these Terms, and (c) in accordance with Applicable Law governing data security, privacy, and information handling, including but not limited to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended (“CCPA”). Versus shall update, correct, or delete Participant Information in accordance with applicable privacy laws, including upon termination of these Terms Versus shall not transfer Participant Information outside the United States in accordance with applicable privacy laws. Versus and its affiliates shall routinely inspect its operations for self-assessment security compliance reviews. If Versus undertakes any third-party audits such as a SOC 2 Type II audit or similar on its own initiative, Versus shall provide Host with a copy of the most recent audit report on an annual basis, at Host’ request. To the extent any unmitigated material risk is identified in any of the above audits, Versus will take appropriate prompt action to remedy such weakness. Versus shall also share the audit report for its hosting provider with Host upon request, provided Versus is permitted to do so under any applicable confidentiality provisions imposed by its hosting provider. Upon the termination of these Terms, or at any other time that a participant may request, Versus shall immediately destroy (and not keep in Versus’ possession, recreate, or deliver to anyone else) all Participant Information and provide written certification of such action at the request of Host, unless Versus is required to keep such information pursuant to another provision of these Terms. Versus shall monitor requests it receives from California and European consumers pursuant to those consumers’ rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 and GDPR, as amended, concerning the processing of Participant Information (“Consumer Rights Requests”) and shall promptly fulfill those requests. 

  1. Confidential Terms. Each party shall maintain, and require its respective subsidiaries, officers, directors and/or employees to maintain, the confidentiality of the terms of these Terms and not to disclose the terms without the prior written consent of the other, except that each may disclose such matters to their respective attorneys, tax advisers, lenders, accountants and as otherwise required by law. 

  1. Information Security. During the term of an order form, Versus will maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards designed for the protection, confidentiality, and integrity of Confidential Information and Participant Information (at least as rigorous as the safeguards Versus employs to protect its own data) pursuant to its policies located at https://www.versusgame.com/privacy-policy.
