DECEPTIO.AI is an AI (artificial intelligence)-driven program for identifying potential deception by analyzing the words entered into the DECEPTIO.AI Statement Analyzer. DECEPTIO.AI does not detect lies. This is because most deceptive people will not lie. However, they may qualify their statement, withhold information or use language that indicates they are being less than truthful. DECEPTIO.AI is capable of identifying these deceptive linguistic indicators. DECEPTIO.AI is intended to aid an investigator or interviewer and is not a substitute for a thorough investigation or analysis.
DECEPTIO.AI is designed to analyze a statement. If you have a transcript of a question and answer interview, you should analyze only the answers. The answers should be analyzed one at a time. Analyzing all the answers at the same time, may cause the DECEPTIO.AI Truth Score feature to miscalculate providing either a false positive or a false negative result.
DECEPTIO.AI has the right to make changes to the Products if such changes do not materially lessen the Product’s functionality. DECEPTIO.AI may provide additional terms that apply to Customer’s use of updates, new features, or related software.
Data Collection and Ownership Clause
By using the services provided by DECEPTIO.AI LLC, Customer acknowledges and agrees that any data, information, or keyed or spoken "Inputs" into the DECEPTIO.AI Statement Analyzer does not contain any personally identifiable information regarding the subject's or suspect's statements that you provide for the purpose of obtaining an analysis result or service i.e. “DECEPTIO.AI Truth Score” rating and “Key Words” and “Key Words Explanation”, ("Input Data") shall become the sole and exclusive property of DECEPTIO.AI LLC. DECEPTIO.AI LLC reserves the right to use, analyze, reproduce, distribute, and modify the Input Data for the purposes of present and future product enhancement, improvement, and for the training and development of DECEPTIO.AI’s AI and machine learning models ("LLM AI Training"). You hereby irrevocably transfer and assign to DECEPTIO.AI LLC all rights, title, and interest in and to the input data and waive any and all claims of ownership, rights, or compensation related to the use of the input data for the aforementioned purposes.
Customer’s Affiliates may use the Products under this Agreement once approved by DECEPTIO.AI. Customer is responsible for its Affiliates’ use, and Customer has the sole right to enforce this Agreement.
Compliance with Laws
Customer’s use of the Products must not violate any applicable laws, including copyright or trademark laws, export control laws and regulations, including laws and regulations in its jurisdiction.
Reservation of rights. Products are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and international treaties. DECEPTIO.AI reserves all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement, and no rights are granted or implied by waiver or estoppel.

Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” is non-public information in any form that is marked as “confidential” or that a reasonable person should understand is confidential. This includes, but is not limited to, Customer Content, the terms of this Agreement and Customer’s account authentication credentials. Confidential Information does not include information that:
becomes publicly available without a breach of a confidentiality obligation; was received lawfully from another source without a confidentiality obligation; is independently developed; or is Feedback.
Protection of Confidential Information
Each party will take reasonable steps to protect the other’s Confidential Information. A party will only use the other party’s Confidential Information as part of the parties’ business relationship. Neither party will disclose Confidential Information to third parties. A party may only share Confidential Information with a party’s Representatives on a need-to-know basis, under nondisclosure obligations at least as protective as this Agreement. Each party remains responsible for the use of Confidential Information by its Representatives. A party must promptly notify the other party if it discovers any unauthorized use or disclosure.
Disclosure required by law. A party may disclose the other’s Confidential Information if required by law, but only after it notifies the other party (if legally permissible) so that the other party can seek a protective order.
Neither party is required to restrict its Representatives in other work assignments if they have had access to Confidential Information. Each party agrees that the use of information retained in Representatives’ unaided memories in the development or deployment of the parties’ respective products or services does not create liability under this Agreement or trade secret law.
Duration of confidentiality obligation. These confidentiality obligations apply (1) for Customer Content, until it is deleted from the Online Services; and (2) for all other Confidential Information, for a period of five years after a party receives the Confidential Information.
Limitation of Liability
Each party’s maximum, aggregate liability to the other under this Agreement is limited to direct damages finally awarded in an amount not to exceed the following:
Products. For Products ordered on a subscription basis, DECEPTIO.AI’s maximum liability to Customer for any incident giving rise to a claim will not exceed the amount Customer paid for the Product during the 12 months before the incident.
Pricing and Payment
Customer agrees to pay fees in full, up front and, if invoiced, within thirteen (13) days of the invoice date. Amounts payable are non-refundable, except as stated in this Agreement regarding Product warranty and third-party claims.

If Customer fails to pay fees on time, DECEPTIO.AI has the right to charge 5% monthly interest on past due amounts as allowed by law. DECEPTIO.AI also has the right to charge Customer for all expenses of recovery, to terminate the applicable order, turn off access and to take any other action at law.
Customer is solely responsible for all taxes, fees, duties and governmental assessments (except for taxes based on DECEPTIO.AI net income) that are imposed or become due in connection with this Agreement. If any taxes are required to be withheld on payments invoiced by DECEPTIO.AI, Customer may deduct such taxes from the amount owed and pay them to the appropriate taxing authority, but only if Customer promptly provides DECEPTIO.AI an official receipt for those withholdings and other documents reasonably requested to allow DECEPTIO.AI to claim a foreign tax credit or refund. Customer will ensure that any taxes withheld are minimized to the extent possible under applicable law.
Term and Termination
This Agreement is effective until terminated by a party, as described below.
Termination without cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement without cause on 30 days’ notice. Licenses granted on a subscription basis will continue for the duration of the Subscription Term, subject to the terms of this Agreement.

If DECEPTIO.AI is in breach, Customer will be reimbursed for any prepaid unused fees.
Termination for regulatory reasons. DECEPTIO.AI may modify, discontinue, or terminate a Product in any country or jurisdiction where there is any current or future government regulation, obligation, or other requirement, that (1) is not generally applicable to businesses operating there; (2) presents a hardship for DECEPTIO.AI to continue offering the Product without modification; or (3) causes DECEPTIO.AI to believe these terms or the Product may conflict with any such regulation, obligation, or requirement. If DECEPTIO.AI terminates a subscription for regulatory reasons, Customer will receive, as its sole remedy, a reimbursement for any prepaid, unused subscription fees.
Order of Precedence
Conflicting terms in the Specific Product Terms take precedence over these General Terms as to the applicable Products. These General Terms will take precedence over any conflicting terms in other documents.
Either party may assign this Agreement to an Affiliate but it must notify the other party in writing of the assignment. DECEPTIO.AI may also assign its rights to receive payment and enforce Customer’s payment obligations. Any other assignment of this Agreement must be approved by the other party in writing. Such notification to DECEPTIO.AI shall be made to the account manager at DECEPTIO.AI. Any attempted assignment without required approval will be void.

Regulations, International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and sanctions regulations administered by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (“trade laws”). #
Customer will not take any action that causes DECEPTIO.AI to violate U.S. or other applicable trade laws. If Customer learns of a potential violation of trade laws relating to the performance of this Agreement, or a potential violation of the terms in this subsection, it will alert DECEPTIO.AI as soon as possible, but in no event more than 14 days after acquiring this knowledge.
DECEPTIO.AI may suspend or terminate this Agreement to the extent that it reasonably concludes that performance would cause it to violate U.S. or other applicable trade laws, including those described above, or put it at risk of becoming the subject of economic sanctions under such trade laws.
If any part of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
Waiver. Failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by the waiving party. No third-party beneficiaries. This Agreement does not create any third-party beneficiary rights except as expressly provided by its terms.
All provisions survive termination of this Agreement except those requiring performance only during the term of the Agreement.
