- CLIENT’S USE OF FITBIT SOLUTIONS AND REPORTING
4.1. Access and Use. Subject to Client’s compliance with these Client Terms and any Ordering Documents, Client may access and use the Fitbit Solutions and Reporting set forth on any Ordering Documents throughout the Subscription Term in the Territory. Any such Fitbit Solutions and Reporting may only be used by Client in support of Client’s Program.
4.2. Account Setup & Administration.
- Account Setup. To the extent applicable to the Fitbit Solutions selected on any Ordering Documents, Fitbit will provide Client with access credentials (and/or a mechanism that permits Client to obtain access credentials) as needed to identify, authorize, and designate roles for Administrators through Client’s Account. All Administrators who have been granted access to the Fitbit Solutions must have their own unique Account, which may not be shared with any other Client personnel. Client shall, and shall be responsible for ensuring that its Administrators shall, maintain the confidentiality of all Account information (including access credentials) and all activities under its Account. Client shall keep all Account information up-to-date and notify Fitbit promptly of any unauthorized access to, or use of, its Account.
- Account Access. As between the parties, Client is solely responsible for providing the servers, mobile devices, storage, software, databases, network and communications systems and services needed to access, manage, and use the Fitbit Solutions.
- Account Eligibility Requirements. Client shall comply with the eligibility requirements found here, which may be updated from time to time.
- To the extent that Client is required to provide information relating to sales, stock, and inventory to Fitbit under these Client Terms (including POs, invoices, and reports that Client is required to provide), Client will, unless otherwise expressly stated in these Client Terms or otherwise required by Fitbit, provide all information through the EDI. Until the parties establish fully functioning EDI capabilities and connectivity, Client will provide said information on a weekly basis via Excel Spreadsheet / FTP / HTTP or any other format to be agreed by the parties. The parties will work in good faith to establish fully functional EDI connectivity and reporting at least 3 months prior to the on-sale date of any Fitbit Products & Services. Each party will give the other party access to its EDI solely to fulfill that party’s obligations under these Client Terms. As soon as practicable following the effective date of these Client Terms (to the extent not already shared before such effective date), Client will share its EDI capabilities and specifications with Fitbit, and the parties will use reasonable efforts to mutually agree on an EDI-integration plan. In the event of any outage, downtime, or interruption to the operation of its EDI, Client will promptly take steps to identify and resolve the issue so that normal operation of EDI is resumed. Fitbit will not be liable for any failure or delay in performing any of its obligations under these Client Terms to the extent that the failure or delay is caused by the unavailability of Client’s EDI.
- Except as otherwise set forth in Section 4.3(a), all invoices issued by Fitbit will be provided through EDI. In the case of rebills or credit memos issued by Fitbit or EDI delays or interruptions, the invoices and credit memos will be submitted via email to the email address provided by Client.
4.4. Client will submit POs for Bulk Orders at least 2 weeks in advance of the requested delivery date. If Fitbit does not accept a Bulk Order via email within five (5) business days of such Client email confirmation, the PO will be deemed rejected.

5.2. The Invoice Price is exclusive of any Taxes. Where Fitbit is required to charge Taxes, the applicable amount will be added to the Invoice Price and the Invoice Price set out on the Ordering Documents will be deemed to be increased accordingly. If Client provides to Fitbit a valid exemption documentation, Fitbit will not collect the Taxes covered by that certificate. Fitbit shall make the determination as to whether an exemption documentation is valid or able to accept in good faith in its reasonable discretion.
5.3. Unless otherwise agreed on an Ordering Document, Client will make full payment of the Invoice Price within thirty (30) days after the date of Fitbit’s invoice.
5.4. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing (email shall be sufficient), all payments due to Fitbit will be in the currency set forth on the applicable Ordering Documents without any deduction or set-off. Fitbit may, in its sole discretion, change the currency set forth on the applicable Ordering Documents or the currency otherwise agreed to by the parties in writing provided that Fitbit uses commercially reasonable efforts to notify Client 30 days before such changes take effect.
5.5. Any payments due to Fitbit that are not timely received will be subject to interest accrued at the lesser of: a) 1.5% per month, or b) the maximum amount permitted by law. Fitbit may reject any orders submitted by Client until Fitbit has received payment in full for any amounts that are overdue. In relation to payments disputed in good faith, interest under this clause is only payable after the dispute is resolved, on sums found or agreed to be due, from the original due date until payment.
5.6. All payments to Fitbit will be made by Client by way of electronic transfer to the account as notified to Client by Fitbit for that purpose.
5.7. Client will provide audited financial statements to Fitbit on Fitbit’s request to verify Client’s financial condition. Fitbit may require that Client obtain Fitbit Products & Services on a cash-in-advance wire transfer basis at any time and without advance notice if Fitbit determines that Client’s financial condition warrants these payment arrangements. Fitbit may also require that Client deliver a letter of credit or other security to secure Client obligations under these Client Terms.
5.8. Client may use credit memos issued by Fitbit to Client in connection with an Ordering Document as remittance for amounts due to Fitbit for Product purchases under that Ordering Document (“Credit Memo“). Client may not deduct or offset against any invoices or payments without a Credit Memo. Upon termination of these Client Terms, any open Credit Memos will be applied to any balance owed by Client to Fitbit under these Client Terms and Fitbit will pay any remaining balance of the open Credit Memo to Client within 30 business days of termination.

6.1. Customer-Facing Packaging. Fitbit will determine all Fitbit Products & Services branding at its sole discretion, including all packaging, in-box materials, creative materials, and software.

Client will notify Fitbit of its rejection within 24 hours of delivery. If Client does not notify Fitbit of its rejection under this clause within 24 hours of delivery, Client is deemed to have accepted that the relevant Devices have been delivered in accordance with the relevant PO and delivery note.
- Following any Client rejection of a delivery for Defective Device, Client will (i) retain any damaged Device in its original packaging or provide acceptable proof of damaged Device for inspection by or on behalf of Fitbit, and (ii) return any Devices agreed by the parties to be Defective to Fitbit or, at Fitbit’s request, to a third party identified by Fitbit, as soon as reasonably practicable.
- Fitbit will use commercially reasonable efforts to timely inspect Defective Devices that Client rejects.

Fitbit receives data directly from Participants as a result of their use of the Fitbit Products & Services, which includes certain Personal Information, which we refer to herein as Fitbit End User Data. As part of the Fitbit Solutions offered by Fitbit, Fitbit may provide Client certain access to Fitbit End User Data via Reporting or otherwise.

Client acknowledges that if a Participant does not provide consent or later withdraws consent, Fitbit will not share or will immediately cease sharing such applicable Fitbit End User Data with Client. Furthermore, upon any notification from Fitbit that a Participant has withdrawn its consent, Client will promptly cease using and delete such Participant’s Fitbit End User Data. Client shall notify Fitbit immediately upon receiving any notice or communication from any third party which relates directly or indirectly to the use of the Fitbit End User Data. If Client becomes aware that Fitbit End User Data may have been accessed, collected, used, disclosed, or acquired contrary to the terms of these Client Terms, Client shall notify Fitbit by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. The notification must describe the nature of the issue, the status of its investigation, and the potential number of Fitbit End Users affected.

In order to do so, Client must apply for access to Fitbit APIs via dev.fitbit.com as updated by Fitbit from time to time. Client’s use of the Fitbit APIs and any Fitbit End User Data received from the Fitbit APIs is subject to and governed by the Fitbit Platform Terms of Service as updated by Fitbit from time to time which are available at http://dev.fitbit.com/terms (“Fitbit Platform Terms”).

Any other attempt to assign is void.

ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE CLIENT TERMS WILL BE GOVERNED BY CALIFORNIA LAW, EXCLUDING CALIFORNIA’S CONFLICT OF LAWS RULES, AND WILL BE LITIGATED EXCLUSIVELY IN THE FEDERAL OR STATE COURTS OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, USA; THE PARTIES CONSENT TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION IN THOSE COURTS. If the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act are otherwise applicable, the parties expressly exclude them from applicability under these Client Terms.
24.5. Changes to Client Terms. The version of these Clients Terms in effect as of the date of the applicable Ordering Documents will govern the provision of Fitbit Solutions pursuant thereto. Fitbit shall at all times have the right to make changes to these Client Terms provided that such changes shall only apply to any Ordering Documents subsequently entered into by the parties. If Client enters into an Ordering Document after a change to these Client Terms, Client agrees that it has consented to all of the changes.
24.6. Miscellaneous. In the event Client subcontracts any of its obligations under these Client Terms, Client will remain liable for all subcontracted obligations and all acts or omissions of its subcontractors. Neither party will be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under these Client Terms or any Ordering Document. Nothing in these Client Terms or any Ordering Document will create any agency, partnership, or joint venture between the parties. Nothing in these Client Terms or any Ordering Document confers any benefits on any third party, except as expressly set forth in these Client Terms or any Ordering Document for an Affiliate of either party. The parties may execute any Ordering Documents in counterparts, including PDF, and other electronic copies, which taken together will constitute one instrument. The various clause headings of these Client Terms are inserted only for convenience. These Client Terms and any Ordering Documents set out all terms agreed to between Client and Fitbit (and Fitbit’s Affiliates) and supersedes all prior agreements, understandings, or arrangements between Client and Fitbit (and Fitbit’s Affiliates) relating to its subject matter (whether oral or in writing). If any term (or part of a term) of these Client Terms and/or any Ordering Documents is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of these Client Terms and/or any Ordering Documents will remain in effect.
24.7. Local Language. Any local language translation (where applicable) exists for reference purposes only, and only the English version will be legally binding unless otherwise specified. If there is any inconsistency between the two versions, the English version shall control.
