Nothing in this Agreement shall be used to construe or interpret any other written agreement between you and Vena.
By publishing (or attempting to publish) a Listing for your Offer in the Vena Marketplace, you agree to the terms of this Agreement. Vena may update this Agreement at any time and will notify you of such changes via email.

To publish a Listing and make available Offers in the Vena Marketplace, you must be a Vena Partner and request a Marketplace Partner Account through the Partner Portal and provide all information required by Vena to approve you as a Marketplace Partner. Vena may use your contact information to send you information regarding announcements, programs, updates, and the like for your Marketplace Partner Account. You agree that Vena may display the contact information (including email address) that you provide us in the Vena Marketplace for customer support and related purposes. You are responsible for all activity that takes place with your Marketplace Partner Account.

2. PUBLISHING A LISTING FOR YOUR OFFER
(a) Publishing. You must submit to Vena each Offer that you wish to List, including any Offer Assets and updates. All submissions shall be submitted through your Marketplace Partner Account and will be reviewed and approved by Vena in its sole discretion. You will receive notification of the results via email. You are solely responsible and liable for the Offer, including all delivery and support. Vena may retain copies of the Offer Assets and any other materials you submit with your Offer. Vena will not return them, so you must maintain your own backup copies.
(b) Updates to Offers. To the extent you make available updates to Offers, those updates are subject to the requirements of this Agreement.
(c) Certification. Each Offer is subject to Certification before the Listing for such Offer is published in the Vena Marketplace. Certification and post-publication assurances, described below, may include Vena scanning submitted Offers for identification of security vulnerabilities. Vena's Certification of an Offer does not constitute any representation or acknowledgment by Vena that the Offer complies with such requirements, nor does it constitute any acceptance by Vena of any responsibility or liability for the Offer.
(d) Post Publication Assurances. Once published in the Vena Marketplace, Vena may periodically test and evaluate your Offer to verify that it continues to comply with this Agreement and Documentation. Vena may also modify your Listing solely to correct obvious spelling, grammatical or typographical errors.

The Vena Marketplace may allow Customers to comment on and rate Offers and display such comments and ratings on your Offer, including comments and ratings sourced from third parties.

You acknowledge that Vena grants no right or license to your Offers through the operation of the Vena Marketplace or through enabling you to provide Offers through the Vena Marketplace.
(e) License to Vena Marks. While you have a Listing, subject to any restrictions in your Partnership Agreement, Vena grants you a worldwide, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free, revocable license to use the Vena Marks in connection with advertising for your Offer on the Vena Marketplace, solely as described in the Vena branding guidelines.

Recipient shall not use Discloser’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than as permitted in this Agreement. Recipient shall take the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature and importance (but in no event less than reasonable care) to protect the confidentiality and avoid the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication or dissemination of the Discloser’s Confidential Information.
(ii) Exceptions. Notwithstanding the restrictions in Section 6(a)(i), Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information: (i) to the extent required by applicable law or regulation, or (ii) pursuant to a subpoena or order of a court or regulatory, self-regulatory or legislative body of competent jurisdiction, or (iii) in connection with any regulatory report, audit or inquiry, or (iv) where requested by a regulator with jurisdiction over Recipient. In the event of such a requirement or request, Recipient shall give Discloser prompt written notice of such requirement or request prior to disclosure and, to the extent feasible, give the Discloser a reasonable opportunity to review and comment upon the disclosure and request confidential treatment or a protective order pertaining thereto prior to making such disclosure.
(iii) Destruction. Upon Discloser’s written request at any time but subject to any rights Vena may have pursuant to this Agreement, Recipient shall return or destroy Discloser’s Confidential Information and any copies or extracts thereof. Upon Discloser’s request, Recipient will provide Discloser with written confirmation of such return or destruction in compliance with this provision. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) Recipient will not be required to destroy or return automatic, archived computer back-up files on which Confidential Information may be stored in conformance with customary technology practices and policies and (ii) Recipient may retain one copy of the Discloser’s Confidential Information in accordance with its ordinary course legal record retention procedures; provided, however, that any such retained Confidential Information will be kept confidential and remain subject to this Agreement for the period of retention.

To the extent you transmit or process Customer information outside Vena’s systems, you represent and warrant that you will notify all Customers and users prior to their use of your Offers that their Customer information will be transmitted or processed outside Vena’s systems and to that extent Vena is not responsible for the privacy, security, or integrity of that Customer information. With respect to the Personal Data collected from Customers, you and Vena agree that you and Vena are not joint controllers, as defined in the GDPR, of the Personal Data that each independently Processes.
