6. Data and Confidential Data of Individuals
(a) Registration Data: Registration Data submitted will be used by IMS for the purposes of registering and administering your Portal account and use of Portal Services and to communicate with you. You hereby authorize and provide IMS with the right and authority and consent to use and to disclose to other persons (including any IMS third party service providers and payment processors) Registration Data for the purpose of performing the Portal Services and otherwise as IMS determines is reasonably required in performing its obligations under this Agreement.
(b) Raw Data collected by telematics device: You hereby authorize and provide IMS with the right and authority and consent to use and to disclose or sublicense to other persons (including any IMS third party service providers) the Raw Data for the purpose of performing the Portal Services and otherwise as IMS determines is reasonably required in performing its obligations under this Agreement. Raw Data transmitted to DriveSync hosting servers or otherwise provided to IMS will be used by IMS for the purposes of performing Portal Services generating DriveSync Reports and in creating aggregated data analysis.
(c) Portal: Portal will be provided to you as part of the Portal Services and IMS will not, subject to the terms of this Agreement, intentionally use, disclose or provide the Portal to any other person. You hereby authorize and provide IMS with the right and authority and consent to use, transmit over the Internet to you and to disclose to other persons (including any IMS third party service providers) the Portal for the purpose of performing the Portal Services and otherwise as IMS determines is reasonably required in performing its obligations under this Agreement.
(d) Anonymous Transaction Data: IMS retains the right, and to the extent required you hereby authorize and provide IMS with the right and authority, to use any Anonymous Transaction Data for its internal business purposes without limitation or restriction for any purpose IMS may, in its discretion, choose and use and disclose and commercially exploit the Anonymous Transaction Data without limitation or restriction for any purpose IMS may, in its discretion, choose.
You agree to provide or you represent and warrant to IMS that you have the full, unrestricted right and authority and have been fully authorized to provide to IMS any and all Registration Data (including any Confidential Data of Individuals and Other User Registration Data) and any and all Raw Data collected from the telematics device for the purposes of this Agreement and that IMS is authorized and permitted to use such data as and to the extent provided in this Agreement.
You acknowledge that IMS does not, and you agree that IMS has no obligation to, monitor or review any Raw Data or any Portal Reports prepared by IMS hereunder or to advise you of any results contained therein or to take any action as a result thereof. Portal Reports are prepared solely for your own personal use or business purposes and uses and you are solely responsible to review Portal Reports. Notwithstanding, you agree that IMS has the right to monitor and review Raw Data and Reports, and your use of the Portal Services from time to time and, with respect to any and all Raw Data that you disclose using, or Portal Reports generated through, the Portal Services, you agree that IMS may in its discretion preserve and may disclose without liability to you any of such data and reports where required to do so by law (including if ordered to do so by a court having jurisdiction over IMS) or where such disclosure is reasonably believed by IMS to be necessary to ensure compliance with applicable law or to enforce this Agreement or protect the rights and interests of IMS or any other person.
IMS will use reasonable efforts to protect any Raw Data and Registration Data that you upload to the Portal or otherwise provide to IMS and any DriveSync Portal Reports. Once such data has been received or generated by IMS, IMS employs physical, administrative and technical safeguards, reasonably appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, to safeguard your such data (including any Confidential Data of Individuals therein) against loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure. For example, with respect to the Portal, IMS uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology, an encryption technology used to encrypt information sent from your computer to our servers over the Internet. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although IMS uses reasonable efforts to safeguard your data and information, IMS cannot guarantee it. IMS cannot ensure or guarantee that any data or information you provide or transmit to IMS or that IMS transmits to you is completely secure from individuals who might attempt to deliberately evade security measures, including by intercepting wireless transmissions or transmissions over the Internet. You provide IMS with your data and information and authorize IMS to report to you at your own risk.

If notice of termination is received as set out in the preceding sentence, your subscription services will terminate at the end of the then current paid up applicable period. IMS reserves the right to terminate or suspend your subscription services at any time in the event of any non-payment by you.
