1.            INTRODUCTION TO THE NEXT INSPECT APP. Through the Next Inspect App, we offer you tools to help you create a condition report for a vehicle by responding to questions about the condition and capturing images of the vehicle; such condition report may only be used for Manheim marketplaces subject to applicable limitations for condition reports.
 
Below is a brief description of the Tools and features available through the App, each of which may be subject to additional terms and conditions. You should review the terms and conditions applicable to every Tool or feature you access through the App. Section 16 below describes how these Terms relate to the terms and conditions applicable to these in-App Tools and features. Manheim may offer Tools and services through the App either directly or through an affiliate or unaffiliated third party. Additionally, where a Tool or feature relies on information from a third party, Manheim is not responsible for the accuracy or timeliness of that information. Some of the following options may not be available to all Users or in all jurisdictions. You can use the App to:
 
A.    VIN Scan. Scan the VIN to receive vehicle information from the VIN decode, namely, the year, make, model and trim of the vehicle.
 
B.   Disclosures:  Respond to the questionnaire in the “Questions and Announcements” section to provide information about the vehicle and condition to inform the condition report and condition grading.
 
C.   360 Images: 360 Images allows you to generate 360 degree images from static images of a vehicle for use in connection with the condition report within the Manheim marketplaces. The additional terms and conditions of the 360 Images are set out in the attached Addendum, which is part of and incorporated into these Terms.
 
D.   Condition Report: Based on the information provided through the Tools in A-C above, the Application will generate a condition report and condition grade for the vehicle.  Manheim makes no representations or warranties regarding or related to any condition reports generated from the use of the App.
 
2.            LICENSE TO USE THE APP AND GENERAL USE RESTRICTIONS. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Manheim hereby grants to you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-assignable, non-sub-licensable, revocable, license to use the Application for Dealer-related purposes on any User product (“Device”) that you own or control which uses an operating system utilized or provided by Apple, Google, Microsoft, or any other supported platform (the “Platform”) and as such Device is permitted to be used by the rules or terms of service governing use set forth by the Platform. Manheim, not the Platform, is solely responsible for the Application and any information or content received through the Application or the services accessible through the Application. For clarity, the license does not include any right to make or distribute copies of the Application, to use the Application for the benefit of any third party or to monetize the use of the Application. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any access to the Application or the services or Tools accessible through the Application by automated inquiry devices, robots, or repetitive data gathering and extraction tools, routines, scripts, or other mechanisms with similar functionality, is expressly prohibited. You agree not to associate, input, or upload to or through the Application any virus, Trojan horse, worm, time bomb, or other computer programming routine that (i) is intended to damage, interfere with, intercept, or expropriate any Manheim system or technology or (ii) infringe the intellectual property rights of another.

Note that the Manheim Privacy Policy also describes ways in which we may collect and use your information, and this section is not intended to limit that description, or our rights, in any way.
 
4.           TERM AND TERMINATION.

You may terminate this Agreement for convenience at any time by deleting the Application from all Devices that you own or control. Manheim may terminate this Agreement, or suspend or limit your access to the Application, at any time and for any reason, with or without notice to you.
