This Beta Participant Agreement (“Agreement”) is made and entered into between {Participant} (“Participant”) and Galactic Smarties (“Manufacturer”), and is effective as of the date of acceptance by the Participant.

Participant is an individual or business that desires to participate in “beta testing”, which provides access to confidential materials or services currently in development by Manufacturer. Manufacturer wishes to obtain the benefit of Participant’s services and reports as a beta tester of manufacturer’s materials or service. In consideration of the premises, and of the mutual covenants and conditions, the parties, agree to the following terms and conditions:

  1. Beta Test Material. Each material or service listed on Exhibit A and all components, accessories, and documentation related to each such Beta Test Material and/or technology provided by Manufacturer including, but not limited to, specifications and other technical information, and all updates or revisions thereto, shall be referred to in the following provisions as the “Beta Test Material.” The parties hereto agree that Participant shall be a beta tester for those Beta Test Materials set forth on Exhibit A, as may be amended from time to time by Manufacturer.

  2. License.  Manufacturer hereby grants Participant a non-exclusive, non-transferable consent and license to use each Beta Test Material solely for the purpose of evaluating and testing the Beta Test Material for Manufacturer as described in Exhibit A. The Beta Test Material may not be publicly disclosed, sublicensed, sold, assigned, leased, loaned, or otherwise transferred by Participant to any third party for any reason.

  3. Manufacturer’s Obligations.

    1. Manufacturer will deliver the Beta Test Material to Participant at Manufacturer’s expense.

    2. Manufacturer will provide the support or warranty service for the Beta Test Material described in the Exhibit and no other support or services.

    3. Manufacturer has no obligation to develop or provide any updates or revisions to the Beta Test Material, and Manufacturer reserves the right to alter or adjust performance specifications for the Beta Test Material as it deems necessary or desirable.

    4. Manufacturer will provide the instructions, safety information, warnings or cautions concerning the Beta Test Material described or included in Exhibit A and no other.

Participant’s Obligations.
  1. Participant agrees to test and evaluate the Beta Test Material as requested and described in Exhibit A. Participant agrees to familiarize itself with the Beta Test Material information provided by Manufacturer and to only use or test the Beta Test Material as directed.  Participant will notify Manufacturer of any and all functional flaws, errors, anomalies, and problems directly or indirectly associated with the Beta Test Material known to or discovered by Participant. In addition, Participant agrees to provide Manufacturer with such reports via the methods designated by Manufacturer and to promptly respond to any and all reasonable inquiries, questionnaires, surveys, and other test documents submitted to Participant by Manufacturer.

  2. If Participant is a company or other entity, Participant shall designate to Manufacturer, in writing, an employee or representative who will serve as the single technical contact and who will be responsible for maintaining communication with the Manufacturer. In addition, the address, where Participant will test the Beta Test Material, will be given to Manufacturer in writing. If Participant changes either its technical contact person or address, it will promptly notify Manufacturer in writing of such change.

  3. Upon Manufacturer’s request for the return of the Beta Test Material, Participant agrees to remove the app from all devices within seven days of Participant’s receipt of Manufacturer’s request to do so. If Participant fails to remove the Beta Test Material within this seven-day period, Participant agrees to purchase the Beta Test Material from Manufacturer at the retail price for such Beta Test Material, along with any applicable processing fees, as set forth in an invoice from Manufacturer.

  4. Any feedback, ideas, modifications, suggestions, improvements, and the like made by Participant with respect to the Beta Test Material (“Supportive Information”) will be the property of Manufacturer. Participant agrees to assign, and hereby assigns, all right, title, and interest worldwide in the Supportive Information and the related intellectual property rights to Manufacturer and agrees to assist Manufacturer, at Manufacturer’s expense, in perfecting and enforcing such rights. Manufacturer may disclose or use Supportive Information for any purposes whatsoever without any obligation to Participant.

  5. Participant agrees to pay all incidental costs (such as, costs for Internet and phone services, accessories, cabling, etc.) associated with the testing of the Beta Test Material and incurred during Participant’s possession of the Beta Test Material, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by both parties and described in Exhibit A (What Do I Do?).
