Minuteman EULA: English (EU)

End User License Agreement for Brain Corporation's Autonomous Navigation Software

This End User License Agreement (this “Agreement”) is made by and between Brain Corporation, a California corporation (“Brain”), and the individual or legal entity licensing the Software (as described below) under this Agreement (the “End User”). This Agreement governs the use of Brain’s software (the “Software”) contained on any BrainOS® powered RoboScrub20 provided under the “Brain” or “BrainOS” trademark (each, a “Robotic Scrubber”).

1. Accepting this Agreement

By the End User (a) using the Software or the Autonomy Features, (b) clicking a box indicating acceptance, or (c) executing a subscription agreement, order document, or other instrument that references this Agreement (a “Service Document”), the End User agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including its limitations on access, use, transferability, warranty, and liability. In addition, by accepting this Agreement, the End User represents that he or she has the authority to bind the End User (or its employer or other entity on whose behalf the End User is agreeing) to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

2. Autonomy Services

During the initial period specified in the respective Service Document, executed between the End User and Brain or an authorized manufacturer, reseller, or distributor (an “Authorized Seller”), Brain agrees to provide the following services (the “Autonomy Services”) to the End User:

  • 2.1 Autonomy Features. With the autonomous navigation and other features of the Software (collectively, the “Autonomy Features”) enabled for a Robotic Scrubber, the Robotic Scrubber can clean along routes that the End User pre-configures. The End User is solely responsible for the design of all pre-configured routes. Without the Autonomy Features enabled, the Robotic Scrubber will not be able to operate autonomously but can be used in manual operation.
  • 2.2 Support Services. Brain will provide the End User the following Software support services, as applicable: (a) cloud-connectivity for remote diagnosis of problems and support relating to the Autonomy Features; (b) Software updates for safety-critical or new software features; and (c) summary data on the usage and operation of each Robotic Scrubber. During operation, if access to cellular data is not available for a Robotic Scrubber, Brain may not be able to provide that Robotic Scrubber the applicable support services described in this Section 2.2. Furthermore, to the extent Brain provides text communication to support Autonomy Services, the End User must provide a cellular phone with cellular service to receive such text communication.

3. Use of the Software and Autonomy Features by the End User

The End User must comply with the usage rules established below that apply to all Robotic Scrubbers (collectively, the “Restrictions on Use”):

  • 3.1 The End User agrees to be responsible for the operation and use of the Autonomy Features by the End User and its employees, agents, contractors, and any transferee or other entity that the End User permits to use the Robotic Scrubber (its “Permitees”).
  • 3.2 The End User agrees to use the Software, Autonomy Services, or Autonomy Features only for purposes that are permitted by (a) this Agreement and (b) any applicable law, regulation, or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions (including any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the United States, or such other country in which the End User purchases or uses the Robotic Scrubber).
  • 3.3 Approved Uses. The Autonomy Features allow the Robotic Scrubber to learn actions performed by an operator and later autonomously perform similar actions based on that learning. Notwithstanding the Restrictions on Use in this Section 3, the End User and its Permitees, shall only use the Robotic Scrubber and Autonomy Services to clean indoor areas and surfaces reasonably cleaned by a manual scrubber of comparable build and design to the base scrubbing unit of the Robotic Scrubber in “Approved Environments”. Specifically, these Approved Environments are defined as physical spaces that are monitored and designated for cleaning using industry standard practices for machinery and wet floors, including caution signage and barriers, and while a Robotic Scrubber is in autonomous mode, all drops, stairs, escalators, moving platforms, or cliffs near to the Robotic Scrubber during its operation must be guarded by a physical barrier. The End User and its Permitees, shall use the Autonomy Services only in accordance with the Robotic Scrubber’s user manuals, guides, and instructions provided in the Software (the “Instructions”). These Instructions may be updated, revised, or otherwise modified by Brain or an Authorized Seller. The End User will be responsible for operating, and instructing all operators of, the Robotic Scrubber how to use the Robotic Scrubber and Autonomy Services in accordance with the Instructions.
  • 3.4 Healthcare Supplement. Any usage of a Robotic Scrubber and Autonomy Services in a Healthcare Facility is governed by the additional terms and conditions in the Agreement Healthcare Supplement available at https://www.braincorp.com/eula-healthcare-supplement-jn76sz12/. For clarity, a “Healthcare Facility” is any facility, or portion thereof, providing clinical medical services related to an individual’s health, including diagnosis and treatment of physical disease, illness, injury, or impairment.
  • 3.5 Proper Maintenance and Inspections. The End User, as well as its Permitees, shall only use the Software and the Autonomy Features so long as the Robotic Scrubber is maintained and operated in accordance with the Robotic Scrubber’s Instructions. This maintenance and operation shall include, but not be limited to, (a) inspection of the Robotic Scrubber prior to operation to ensure, among other things, squeegees are properly positioned and cleaned, liquids are filled, and there is no obvious damage to the Robotic Scrubber and (b) maintenance and routine service at least in accordance with industry standards for manual scrubbers. All Robotic Scrubbers are to be stored in a reasonably secure location away from public access.
  • 3.6 Conduct Restrictions. The End User, as well as its Permitees, shall not engage in any of the following conduct or activities: (a) operating a Robotic Scrubber in any manner that constitutes a prohibited use under the Robotic Scrubber’s Instructions; (b) intentionally tampering with, modifying, or damaging the Robotic Scrubber or any hardware or sensors containing or associated with the Software or the Autonomy Services; (c) installing or modifying, or attempting to install or modify, any software other than the Software on the Robotic Scrubber (except solely as otherwise permitted pursuant to any open source licenses, if any, provided to the End User by Brain, in connection with the Software licensed hereunder); (d) installing or attempting to install the Software on any hardware or device other than the Robotic Scrubber; (e) using the Software or the Autonomy Services to conduct any operation of the Robotic Scrubber beyond routine cleaning functions within an Approved Environment; or (f) attempting to deliberately damage or undermine the legitimate operation of the Autonomy Services or the Software. The Robotic Scrubbers, Software, and Autonomy Services are not designed or intended for use in environments where any failure of the Robotic Scrubbers, Software, and Autonomy Services would reasonably likely lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or property damage.

10. General Legal Terms

  • 10.1 Any terms (other than those explicitly recognized in this Agreement) with respect to the Software, Autonomy Services, or Autonomy Features in a Service Document, purchase order, vendor agreement, extended service agreement, or any other instrument are void unless agreed upon in writing by Brain, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control in the event of a conflict with any such instrument to the extent not expressly overwritten. This Agreement and any other instrument that references this Agreement that is signed by the End User and Brain (together the Agreement and other instrument, the “Agreement Documents”) constitutes the whole legal agreement between the End User and Brain and governs the End User’s use of the Software, Autonomy Services, and Autonomy Features (excluding any services which Brain may provide to the End User under a separate written agreement), and completely replaces any prior agreements between the End User and Brain in relation to the Software, Autonomy Services, and Autonomy Features. The End User agrees that if Brain does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Agreement Documents (or which Brain has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Brain’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Brain. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of the Agreement Documents is invalid, then that provision will be removed from this Agreement without affecting the rest of the Agreement Documents. The remaining provisions of the Agreement Documents will continue to be valid and enforceable. This Agreement shall serve as the “Autonomous Navigation Software End User License Agreement” or “EULA” as may be referenced by the Robotic Scrubber’s user Instructions and other documents by Brain or any Authorized Seller.
  • 10.2 The Software is subject to United States Export Laws. The End User agrees to comply with all applicable domestic and international export and re-export restrictions and regulations, including those of the jurisdiction where the Robotic Scrubber was delivered, and not to transfer, or authorize the transfer, of the Software, Autonomy Services, or Autonomy Features to a prohibited country or otherwise in violation of any such restrictions or regulations.
  • 10.3 The rights granted in the Agreement Documents may not be assigned or transferred by the End User without the prior written approval of Brain. The End User shall not be permitted to delegate the End User’s responsibilities or obligations under the Agreement Documents to any third party without Brain’s prior written approval.
  • 10.4 The Agreement Documents shall be governed and construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.
  • 10.5 Any dispute shall first be referred to the managing directors or equivalent company leader (each a “Managing Director”) of the parties within fourteen (14) days of a written request from one party of the other, and the Managing Directors of the parties shall confer in good faith on the resolution of the issue. Any final decision mutually agreed to by the Managing Directors shall be conclusive and binding on the parties. If the Managing Directors are not able to agree on the resolution of any such issues within ten (10) business days (or such other period of time as mutually agreed by the Managing Directors) after such issue was first referred to them, then such dispute shall finally be resolved by arbitration. All disputes to be settled by arbitration shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA”) in accordance with the LCIA Rules, except where those rules conflict with the provisions of this Agreement, in which case the provisions of this Agreement shall take precedence. The language of the arbitration shall be English and the seat, or legal place of arbitration, shall be London, England. The parties agree to keep confidential the existence of the arbitration, the arbitral proceedings, the submissions made by the parties and the decisions made by the arbitral tribunal, including its awards, except as required by applicable law and to the extent not already in the public domain or disclosure is required to enforce an award, or to pursue an action in aid of arbitration or for injunctive relief (in which case each party may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for appropriate temporary injunctive relief to avoid irreparable harm, maintain the status quo, or preserve the subject matter of the arbitration, pending resolution of any arbitration proceeding). The number of arbitrators shall be three unless the aggregate damages sought by the claimant are stated to be less than one million euros (€1,000,000), and the aggregate damages sought by the respondent/counterclaimant are stated to be less than one million euros (€1,000,000), and neither side seeks equitable relief, in which case there shall be a single arbitrator. In the event there are three arbitrators, each party shall appoint a person to serve as an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days after the respondent submits its answer and counterclaims. The two party-appointed arbitrators shall then appoint the presiding arbitrator within fifteen (15) days after the second party-appointed arbitrator’s appointment. In the event there is one arbitrator, that arbitrator shall be appointed by the parties by mutual agreement within fifteen (15) days after the respondent submits its answer and any counterclaims. If any arbitrators are not selected within these time periods, the LCIA shall, at the written request of any party, complete the appointments that have not been made. Each arbitrator shall be a lawyer with at least fifteen (15) years’ experience with a law firm or member of a barristers’ chambers or corporate law or litigation department of over twenty-five (25) lawyers or who was a judge of a court of general jurisdiction.
