RStudio Advocate Program Terms

Last Revised on: March 2015

RStudio’s Advocate Program (the “Advocate Program”) is designed to encourage select users of RStudio’s software products to promote the use of “R” and RStudio software products in useful and innovative ways. By participating in the Advocate Program, each Participant agrees to these Advocate Program Terms (the “Advocate Program Terms”) and the Shinyapps.io Terms of Use set forth at http://www.rstudio.com/about/shinyapps-terms-use/, in each case, as the same may be updated from time to time (collectively, the “Terms”). If you do not agree to the Terms, do not participate in the Advocate Program.

RStudio may update the Advocate Program Terms from time to time, to, among other things, reflect changes to the RStudio Advocate Program. We will notify you of changes to the Advocate Program Terms by posting an updated version at this webpage and will revise the “Last Updated” date above. We encourage you to periodically review these Advocate Program Terms to be informed with respect to your and RStudio’s rights and obligations with respect to the Advocate Program. Participating in the Advocate Program after a notice of changes has been sent to you or published on the RStudio website shall constitute consent to the changed terms and practices.

Users selected by RStudio (“Participants”) will receive a coupon code (a “Coupon”) and shall be entitled to the benefits under the Advocate Program plan the Participant has been selected or (the “Advocate Program Plan”) for one year from the date you use your Coupon (the “Initial Term”).

In exchange, the Participant agrees to create and maintain one or more assets (for example, Shiny applications, R Markdown documents, or other similar items) mutually agreed to by RStudio and the Participant (collectively “Assets”) and hereby grant RStudio a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid up, transferable right and license for the Term, at RStudio’s option, to access, use, copy, adapt, distribute, promote, and publicly display and perform such Assets (i) at RStudio’s gallery currently located at
http://www.rstudio.com/products/shiny/shiny-user-showcase/, (ii) on RStudio’s website, (iii) in training sessions, customer demonstrations and public presentations by RStudio or its channel partners, and (iv) for any other similar use in connection with promoting the use of “R” and the RStudio software products. For purposes of the Shinyapps.io Terms of Use, all Assets shall be deemed to be Applications thereunder and all terms and conditions applicable to Applications shall be deemed to apply to the Assets hereunder. The Participant and RStudio may agree to add and/or remove Assets throughout the Term by email.

If a Participant is selected to continue participation in the Advocate Program, the Participant will either receive a new Coupon or RStudio will notify the Participant by email that Participant’s participation in the Program is continuing for an additional one year period (each a “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”).

If a Participant does not desire to continue participating in the Advocate Program, Participant must notify RStudio within thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current Term. RStudio may terminate a Participant’s participation in the Advocate Program and/or discontinue the Advocate Program at any time with thirty (30) days notice, upon which all rights and benefits granted under the Advocate Program Terms and Advocate Program Plan shall immediately cease.

FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, RSTUDIO MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES TO ANY PARTICIPANT WITH RESPECT TO THE ADVOCATE PROGRAM AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NONFRINGEMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR MERCHANTABILITY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL RSTUDIO BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF USE, GOODWILL, DATA, REVENUE, BUSINESS OR PROFITS) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE ADVOCATE PROGRAM
