Acceptance of Terms
Zentility provides its service to you subject to the following terms ("Terms of Service" or "Terms"), which may be updated as deemed necessary. These Terms of Service constitute a binding agreement between Zentility, Inc. and you, governing your use of this website (the "Website") and the Services provided by the Software as defined herein.
- Zentility provides the platform for the Channel Partner to connect End Users to competitive retail rates, allowing the Channel Partner to recommend the best available rate given market timing and supplier participation (the "Service").
- For purposes of these Terms, the Web Platform shall be considered part of the Service, and both may be referred to collectively as the “Service”.
- Zentility is not an energy provider.
Description of Service
Zentility will provide electricity and natural gas rates and contracting capabilities for deregulated states where Zentility is licensed to procure energy. Zentility does not guarantee that it will always furnish the lowest rate available in the market or that the end user’s natural gas and/or electric bills will decrease in amount as a result of your use of the Service. An End User’s natural gas and/or electric bill is based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the market rate, quantity of energy usage, and other factors outside of the Zentility’s Control. You acknowledge that the End User’s energy bill may increase due to one or more of these factors. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, the Terms will apply to any new features of, or enhancements to, the current Service. The Service is provided "AS-IS" for your use.
When an End User’s account is registered on the Platform, you agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about the End User and their business. We have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof) if you provide any untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete information, or if we reasonably suspect that you have provided untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete information with the intent of being fraudulent, malicious, and/ or deceitful.
Use of this Service

If you have signed a Channel Partner Agreement, then either Zentility Inc. or you (“Discloser”) may disclose to you or Zentility Inc., respectively (“Recipient”), information pertaining to the Content (“Purpose”) that the Discloser considers confidential (“Confidential Information”). Recipient may use Confidential Information only for the Purpose. Recipient must use a reasonable degree of care to protect Confidential Information and to prevent any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information.

YOU WILL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS ZENTILITY INC. AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, MEMBERS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES AGAINST ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, ACTIONS, EXPENSES, LOSSES, DAMAGES AND COSTS (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO REASONABLE LEGAL COSTS AND DISBURSEMENTS) ARISING FROM OR INCURRED AS A RESULT OF (A) YOUR ACTIVITIES IN CONNECTION WITH THE WEBSITE; (B) ANY VIOLATION OF THE TERMS OR, IF APPLICABLE, THE SERVICE AGREEMENT BY YOU; OR (C) ANY ALLEGATION THAT ANYTHING YOU TRANSMIT THROUGH OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE WEBSITE INFRINGES OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES THE COPYRIGHT, TRADEMARK, TRADE SECRET, PRIVACY, OR OTHER RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.
(a) Limitation of Liability.
The exclusive measure of damages recoverable from claims arising from, under or in connection with the Terms, whether arising by negligence, intended conduct or otherwise will be limited to direct damages only and such damages will be the sole and exclusive remedy hereunder and all other remedies or damages are waived. In no event will the Zentility, Inc be liable for any incidental, consequential, punitive, exemplary or indirect damages, lost profits or other business interruption damages, lost or prospective profits, in tort, contract or otherwise even if the Channel Partner has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The provisions of this Section will survive the termination of the Terms.
If, notwithstanding the foregoing, the Channel Partner is found to be liable to Zentility, Inc. or any third party for any damage or loss which arises under or in connection with your use of the Service, the Channel Partner’s total cumulative liability shall in no event exceed the amount Zentility paid the Channel Partner for the Service in the three (3) months prior to the occurrence of the event which gave rise to any such liability.
(b) Choice of Law/Venue.
The Terms are governed by and will be construed in accordance with laws of the State of Maryland without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Maryland. The parties mutually consent to the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of Maryland and agree that any action, suit, or proceeding concerning, related to, or arising out of the Terms shall be brought there. The parties agree that they will not raise any defense or objection or file any motion based on lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue, inconvenience of the forum, or the like in any case filed in a federal or state court in the State of Maryland.
(c) Entire Agreement.
Together, the Terms and, if applicable, the Channel Partner Agreement constitute the entire agreement between the Parties and supersede any prior or contemporaneous, oral or written, express or implied understanding between them respecting the subject matter hereof. In case of conflict between the Terms and the Service Agreement, the Service Agreement shall control. No modification, amendment or waiver will be effective or binding without the written consent of the parties.
If any provision of the Terms is, for any reason, adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, such judgment will not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder of the Terms which shall be enforced as fully as possible, but will be confined in its operation to the provision directly involved in the controversy in which judgment will have been rendered. The provision rendered invalid or unenforceable shall be deemed modified to the limited extent required to permit its enforcement in a manner most closely representing the intention of the parties as expressed herein.
No Third-Party Beneficiaries
The Terms and, if applicable, the Channel Partner Agreement are intended for the exclusive benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns, and nothing in the Terms and, if applicable, the Channel Partner Agreement shall be construed as creating any rights or benefits in or to any third party, except as specified in, hereto.
Applicability of Revisions
Revisions to the Terms are effective one month after posting unless you have executed a Channel Partner Agreement that is not indefinite in duration. In such a case, the latest Terms posted prior to the effective date of the Channel Partner Agreement shall control for the initial term of the contract, and the Terms in place one month prior to any renewal shall control for any such renewal period. If the Channel Partner Agreement is indefinite in duration, Zentility Inc. will attempt to notify you when the Terms are revised.
You may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under the Terms and, if applicable, the Service Agreement (including in connection with an acquisition, change in control, or to an affiliated party) either in whole or in part without the prior written consent of Zentility Inc. Any attempted assignment or delegation without such consent will be void. Zentility Inc. shall have the unencumbered right to assign the Terms and, if applicable, the Service Agreement, in whole or in part, to any third party. Subject to the foregoing, the Terms and, if applicable, the Service Agreement shall bind and inure to the parties’ successors and assigns.
