intellectual property and other laws. In addition to the foregoing, all information, data, text, software,
graphics, messages, and/or other materials included and made available to you by Krokit through
the Platform are the property of Krokit or its third-party licensors (the “Krokit Property”).
The Platform designed to provide you with the resources to research, develop, launch, and operate
your franchise business, and we provide you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-
sublicensable, revocable right and license to access the Platform and the Krokit Property solely for

reserves all rights to the Platform and to the Krokit Property not granted expressly in these Terms.
You acknowledge and agree that Krokit may require you to accept updates to the Platform that you
have installed on your computer or mobile device. You acknowledge and agree that Krokit may update the Platform with or without notifying you. You may also need to update third-party software from time to time in order to use the Platform and any third-party software (for example, for certain premium add-ons and/or plugins that you purchase, license, or otherwise access through the Platform).
d. Your Account
Krokit may require you to create an account (“Account”) by providing a valid email address,
username, password and other information as prompted by the registration form. When registering,
you are prohibited from selecting or using as a username that is: (a) a name of another person with
the intent to impersonate that person; (b) a name that is subject to any rights of a person other than
you without appropriate authorization; or (c) a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene.
For example, you may not register using the name of a business leader or investor, unless you have
the rights to such name.
We reserve the right to reject any username or to terminate your username and give such username
to another user of the Platform in our sole discretion, and without any liability to you. You represent
and warrant that (a) the information you provide to us upon registration and at all other times will be
accurate, current and complete and (b) you will maintain and promptly update such information to
keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate,
not current or is incomplete, or Krokit has reasonable grounds to suspect that any information you
provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current or is incomplete, Krokit has the right to suspend or
terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of Platform (or any portion
thereof). You agree not to create an Account or use the Platform if you have been previously
removed or banned from using the Platform.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your log-in credentials and are fully
responsible for all activities that occur through the use of your credentials. You must notify us
immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe the confidentiality of your log-in credentials has
been compromised or if you suspect unauthorized use of your Account. We will not be liable for any
loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of your credentials. You agree that you shall monitor
your Account to prevent use by minors, and you will accept full responsibility for any unauthorized
use of the Platform by minors.

f. Payment of Fees.
You will be responsible for payment of the applicable Fees for your access to and use of the
Platform at the time you create your Account and selects your user category. All Fees are due on the
commencement of each subscription period and will be automatically charged to your designated
method of payment. All Fees are non-refundable.

g. Payment Methods.
We may make available the ability to purchase or otherwise obtain access to certain parts of the
Platform or certain offerings made available via the Platform (a “Transaction”). If you wish to make
a Transaction, you may be asked to supply certain relevant information, such as your credit card
number and its expiration date, your billing address, and your shipping information. You represent
and warrant that you have the right to use any credit card or other method of payment that you
submit in connection with a Transaction. By submitting such information, you grant to us the right to
provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating Transactions. Verification of
information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Transaction. By
making a Transaction, you represent that the purchased offering will be used only in a lawful
You agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account in accordance with the fees, charges and
billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. While it is our practice to
confirm orders by e-mail, the receipt of an e-mail order confirmation does not constitute our
acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service. As a condition to
subscribing to the Platform, you must provide Krokit's payment processor with a valid credit card or
debit card number (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) (“Payment Provider”).
Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card, debit card, or
other method of payment, and you must refer to that agreement, not this Agreement, to determine
your rights and liabilities. By providing Krokit with your credit card or debit card number or PayPal
account and associated payment information, you agree that Krokit is authorized to immediately
charge your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to Krokit hereunder and that no
additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify Krokit of any change in your
billing address or the credit card, debit card, or other method of payment hereunder. We may also
receive updates to your credit card, debit card, or other payment information from our payment
processors. If such changes or updates to your payment information occur after a renewal of your
subscription for which Krokit has not received payment, we may also change your subscription period. Following any change or update, whether made by you or by us, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable method of payment.
Your Fees do not include any Sales Tax (as defined below) that may be due in connection with the
services provided under this Agreement. If Krokit determines it has a legal obligation to collect a
Sales Tax from you, Krokit shall collect such Sales Tax in addition to the Platform Subscription Fees.
If any services, or payments for any services, under the Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in
any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to Krokit, you will be responsible
for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority,
and you will indemnify Krokit for any liability or expense Krokit may incur in connection with such
Sales Taxes. Upon Krokit's request, you will provide it with official receipts issued by the appropriate
taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this
Section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds
that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not
otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
You agree to make all payments of fees to Krokit free and clear of, and without reduction for, any
withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to Krokit will be your sole
responsibility, and you will provide Krokit with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing
authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have
i. Free Trials and Other Promotions.
Any free trial or other promotion that provides access to the Platform must be used within the
specified time of the trial. At the end of the trial period, your use of the Platform will expire, and any
further use of the Platform is prohibited unless you pay the applicable subscription fee. If you are
inadvertently charged for a subscription, please contact email@example.com have the charges
reversed. For the avoidance of doubt, all free trials, promo codes and other promotions are subject
to the terms, conditions, and limitations presented by Krokit with such promotion.

You will have access to the offerings made available to your applicable category of user of the
Platform, which may include, without limitation, certain franchise “Operating,” “Research &
Development,” and “Financing” features (each as defined below).
a. Operating - Research & Development.
The Platform may provide you the opportunity to assess the geographic and demographic market for
competitive franchises, to identify potential locations for the expansion of the Franchise, and to
compare your franchise to certain third-party franchises and franchisees, through the aggregation,
compilation, and presentation of third-party data from a variety of public and proprietary sources
(“Third-Party Data”), for purposes of evaluating the business performance, growth prospects, and
other opportunities for the Franchise. As between you and Krokit, this Third-Party Data is Krokit Property, and is provided in order to facilitate and support investor, entrepreneur, and business operator decision-making.
Provided that you are not in breach of this Agreement, Krokit grants you the limited, non-exclusive,
non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable right to access this Third-Party Data and to use it for
your private and professional purposes, which may include without limitation developing your own
investment and operational materials, which you may provide to third parties in the ordinary course
of business. You do not have the right to sublicense or otherwise exploit any of this Third-Party Data
for any other purpose, whether in exchange for consideration or otherwise. You do not have the right
to use any of the trademarks, trade dress, or other proprietary intellectual property belonging to
Krokit and/or any other party, including, without limitation, third party franchisors, except as and to
the extent expressly provided for in these Terms.
For clarity, Krokit will not make available to you any data belonging to other users of the Platform,
except to the extent, if at all, that such users have expressly agreed to make such data available for
your review and use. Krokit grants you the limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-
sublicensable, revocable right to access the Research & Development features, and to use the
Third-Party Data for your lawful and permissible purposes, which may for the avoidance of doubt
include your marketing, advertising, and other public communications, provided that your use thereof
is not in breach of this Agreement or any other agreement to which you are a party. You do not have
the right to sublicense or otherwise commercially exploit the Third-Party Data for any other purpose,
whether in exchange for consideration or otherwise.
You assume all risks in connection with the use of the Third-Party Data by you and your affiliates,
agents, employees, designees, and/or your successors-in-interest. Krokit expressly disclaims any
representation or warranty as to the accuracy, validity, or completeness of any of the Third-Party
Data. Franchisee agrees to indemnify the Krokit Parties against any losses incurred in connection
with your use of the Third-Party Data in any manner except as expressly provided for herein.
b. Operating - Franchise Data:
The Platform may provide you to provide automated real-time access to your franchise financial and
business performance data (“Franchise Data”), which Franchise Data will be aggregated, analyzed,
and summarized on the Platform in order to allow you to better understand and analyze financial,
demographic, and other data pertaining to the operation of your Franchise (e.g., the “Franchise
Scoreboard”), to help you identify opportunities to improve the performance of your franchise, and
to allow you to model future performance, estimate royalty payments, and explore financing and
growth options (collectively, the “Operating” features). Krokit grants you the limited, non-exclusive,
non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable right to access the Franchise Data and to use it for
your lawful and permissible private and professional purposes, provided that your use thereof is not
in breach of this Agreement or any other agreement to which you are a party. You do not have the
right to sublicense, distribute to third parties, or otherwise exploit any of this Franchise Data for any
other purpose, whether in exchange for consideration or otherwise. You represent and warrant that
any Franchise Data provided by you is, to the best of your knowledge, accurate and complete, and
you agree not to modify, misrepresent, or mischaracterize your Franchise Data in any way, including
without limitation so as to distort or exaggerate the financial performance of your franchise in any
respect. You assume all risks in connection with the use of the Franchise Data by you, your
affiliates, agents, employees, designees, and successors-in-interest. Krokit expressly disclaims any
representation or warranty as to the accuracy, validity, or completeness of any of the Franchise
Data. You agree to indemnify the Krokit Parties against any losses incurred by the Krokit Parties in connection with your use of the Franchise Data in any manner except as expressly provided for herein.
You retain exclusive ownership of your Franchise Data. You grant Krokit the royalty-free, fully paid
up, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, sublicensable (through multiple tiers, without
any additional consideration to you or any other third party), worldwide right and license to store,
use, modify, edit, summarize, reproduce, distribute, perform and display (publicly or otherwise),
create derivative works of, adapt, modify, and otherwise use, analyze, and exploit your Franchise
Data, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed, and for any purpose.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, and for the avoidance of doubt, Krokit will not distribute or publish
your Franchise Data to the general public, and your Franchise Data will not be made available to
third-party users of the Platform except as you may expressly authorize.
c. Franchise Services.
The Platform may provide you the opportunity to access certain services to support the operation of
the Franchise, which services may include, without limitation, strategy and operational consulting
services, accounting, finance, legal, marketing, insurance, and other forms of support (the
“Franchise Services”). Access to the Franchise Services may be subject to the execution of a
separate agreement (a “Franchise Services Agreement”) and/or the payment of additional fees.
The Franchise Services may be provided by third parties and/or directly by Krokit, and Krokit may
provide white-labeled Franchise Services with the support of third-party providers. Your status as a
Krokit user does not guarantee or entitle you to receive any Franchise Services, and you should
carefully evaluate any Franchise Services offer you receive, including without limitation by
comparing the terms and conditions of any Franchise Service Agreements with third party offerings.
If you do enter into a Franchise Services Agreement, you will be solely responsible for the
performance of any and all of your obligations thereunder. Krokit will have no responsibility for the
performance of any obligations under a Franchise Services Agreement unless and to the extent that
Krokit is party to any such agreement and expressly undertakes any such obligations. Except to the
extent that Krokit is a direct party, Krokit will not review any Franchise Services Agreements, and
Krokit will not monitor the performance of any party to a Franchise Services Agreement. Krokit
makes no representation or warranty, and expressly disclaims all representations, warranties, and
covenants, including without limitation any express or implied covenant or warranty of fitness for use,
with respect to the Franchise Services. You assume all risk in connection with the accuracy, validity,
completeness, or fitness for use of the Franchise Services.
The Platform may provide you the opportunity to apply for capital to finance the development,
operation, and growth of your business (“Financing”). Financing options may include term loans,
advance receivables, credit lines, equipment financing, and other options to be designated by third-
party financiers in their sole and absolute discretion. Any Financing may be provided by Krokit
and/or by third parties (and may be provided by Krokit on a white-labeled basis, with the support of
third-party providers), and any Financing will be subject to additional terms and conditions agreed to
by you in connection with each such Financing in the form of financing agreements (“Financing
Agreements”). Your status as a Krokit user does not guarantee or entitle you to receive any
Financing, and you should carefully evaluate any Financing offer you receive, including without
limitation by comparing the terms and conditions of any Financing Agreements with third party
offerings. If you do enter into a Financing Agreement, you will be solely responsible for the performance of any and all of your obligations thereunder, and your counterparty(ies) will be solely responsible or the performance of any and all of their respective obligations thereunder. Except to the extent that Krokit is a direct party to a Financing Agreement, Krokit will not review any Financing Agreement, and Krokit will not monitor the performance of any party to a Financing Agreement.
Krokit expressly disclaims any and all representations and warranties relating to the Financing
and/or the Financing Agreements, including without limitation the availability thereof and the terms
and conditions upon which any Financing may be provided. You agree to indemnify and hold
harmless the Krokit Parties from and against any and all third-party claims in connection with any
Financing Agreements to which you are a party.
e. Third Party Materials.
Certain Platform functionality, including without limitation the Franchise Research, Franchise Data,
Franchise Financing and the Franchise Services, may make available access to information,
products, services, and other materials made available by third parties (“Third-Party Materials”), or
allow for the routing or transmission of such Third-Party Materials, including via links. By using such
functionality, you are directing us to access, route, and transmit to you the applicable Third-Party
Krokit may or may not specifically identify Third-Party Materials as such, and it may or may not be
apparent to you whether information, products, services, and other materials are wholly or partially
comprised of Third-Party Materials. We neither control nor endorse, nor are we responsible for, any
Third-Party Materials, including the accuracy, validity, timeliness, completeness, reliability, integrity,
quality, legality, usefulness, or safety of any Third-Party Materials, or any intellectual property rights
therein. Certain Third-Party Materials may, among other things, be inaccurate, misleading, or
deceptive. Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to be a representation or warranty by Krokit with
respect to any Third-Party Materials, including without limitation the accuracy or completeness
thereof. We have no obligation to monitor Third-Party Materials, and we may block or disable access
to any Third-Party Materials (in whole or part) through the Platform at any time. In addition, the
availability of any Third-Party Materials through the Platform does not imply our endorsement of, or
our affiliation with, any provider of such Third-Party Materials, nor does such availability create any
legal relationship between you and any such provider.
YOUR USE OF AND RELIANCE UPON THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND
IS SUBJECT TO ANY ADDITIONAL TERMS, CONDITIONS, AND POLICIES APPLICABLE TO
SUCH THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS (SUCH AS TERMS OF SERVICE OR PRIVACY POLICIES OF

through the Platform certain data, information, and other content (collectively, “Contributions”). You
or a third-party licensor, as appropriate, retain all intellectual property rights to all Contributions that
you make available (“Your Contributions”). Krokit does not claim ownership of Your Contributions.
This also means that you are responsible for protecting any of your rights in Your Contributions and
we need not enforce a violation of these Terms by another user as it pertains to Your Contributions,
except in accordance with our DMCA Policy (see Section 19 below). When you post or publish Your
Contributions to the Platform, you represent that you own and/or have a royalty-free, perpetual,

Contributions, has completely and effectively waived all such rights and validly and irrevocably
granted to you the right to grant the license stated above. Do not submit any Contributions to the
Platform if you are not the owner of all intellectual property and other proprietary rights in such
Contributions, or are not fully authorized to grant rights in all of the elements of the Contributions.
For the avoidance of doubt, any contribution of Your Contributions is a privilege, not a right, and we
may terminate the privileges of any user at any time and for any reason, without liability to such user.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE ANY OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE OR OTHER
INFORMATION PUBLICLY AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
b. License to Your Contributions.

analyze, and exploit such Contribution, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed,
and for any purpose (including promotional purposes, such as testimonials).
You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant the licenses described in this
section, and that your Contributions, and your provision thereof through and in connection with the
Platform, are complete and accurate, and are not fraudulent, tortious, or otherwise in violation of any
applicable law or any right of any third party. You further irrevocably waive any “moral rights” or other
rights with respect to attribution of authorship or integrity of materials regarding each Submission
that you may have under any applicable law or legal theory.
Krokit has no obligation to store any of Your Contributions that you submit to the Platform. Krokit has

to access Your Contributions pursuant to this Agreement, will not have any responsibility to you or
any other third party for Your Contributions.

IX. GOVERNING LAW; BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
The terms and conditions of these Terms are governed by the laws of the United States (including
federal arbitration law) and the State of Texas, without regard to its principles of conflicts of law, and
regardless of your location. EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY FOR SMALL CLAIMS
COURT, ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT, OF OR RELATED TO, THESE TERMS OR ANY ASPECT
OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND COMPANY, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT,
TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE
RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL
ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND YOU AGREE THAT
COMPANY AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY. SUCH DISPUTES
INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DISPUTES ARISING OUT, OF OR RELATING TO,
INTERPRETATION OR APPLICATION OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, INCLUDING THE
ENFORCEABILITY, REVOCABILITY, OR VALIDITY OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION OR ANY
PORTION OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION. ALL SUCH MATTERS WILL BE DECIDED BY AN
ARBITRATOR AND NOT BY A COURT OR JUDGE.
YOU AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN
INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer
Arbitration Rules, as amended by these Terms. The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online
at https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf. The arbitrator will conduct
hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless
the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any
in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with
due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable
to agree on a location, the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or an arbitrator will determine the
location. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the provisions of these Terms and will be final and
binding. The arbitrator will have the authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive
relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms, but only to the extent necessary to
provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the
arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding
any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of
federal, state, or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.
X. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA) provides recourse for copyright owners who
believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you
believe in good faith that materials available on the Platform infringe your copyright, you (or your
agent) may send to Krokit a written notice by mail or email, requesting that Krokit remove such
material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of
copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Krokit a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the
DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing
to Krokit Copyright Agent as follows: By mail to 1023 Springdale Road, STE 9, Austin, TX 78721; or
by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice.
These Terms do not, and will not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-
employee, agency, or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and Krokit. If any provision of
these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision will be
deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any
remaining provision. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense any or all of your rights or
obligations under these Terms without our express prior written consent. We may assign, transfer, or
sublicense any or all of our rights or obligations under these Terms without restriction. No waiver by
either party of any breach or default under these Terms will be deemed to be a waiver of any
preceding or subsequent breach or default.
Any heading, caption, or section title contained herein is for convenience only, and in no way defines
or explains any section or provision. All terms defined in the singular will have the same meanings when used in the plural, where appropriate and unless otherwise specified. Any use of the term “including” or variations thereof in these Terms will be construed as if followed by the phrase “without limitation.” These Terms, including any terms and conditions incorporated into these Terms, are the entire agreement between you and Krokit relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any
and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements or understandings between you and Krokit relating to such subject matter. In the event of any conflict between the provisions of these Terms and the provisions of any terms incorporated herein by reference, the provisions of these Terms will govern. Notices to you (including notices of changes to these Terms) may be made via posting to the Platform or by email (including in each case via links), or by regular mail. Without
limitation, a printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon, or relating to, these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Krokit will not be responsible for any failure to fulfill any obligation due to any cause beyond its control.
You are responsible for complying with United States export controls and for any violation of such
controls, including any United States embargoes or other federal rules and regulations restricting
exports. You represent, warrant, and covenant that you are not (a) located in, or a resident or a
national of, any country subject to a U.S. government embargo or other restriction, or that has been
designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist supporting” country; or (b) on any of the U.S.
government lists of restricted end users.
