Organization Terms of Service
These Organization Terms of Service (“Organization Terms”) describe and govern the relationship between the Organization (defined below) and Hudl. If you are a Coach, Athlete, Team Admin, Organization Admin, or Visitor, the User Terms and Conditions describe and govern your use of and access to the Platform. These Organization Terms (or, if applicable, Organization’s written agreement with Hudl) and any invoices together form a binding agreement (the “Agreement”) between Organization and Hudl. If any terms in Section 14 apply to Organization, those terms are also incorporated here by reference and are part of the Agreement.
When Hudl updates the Platform or the way the Platform works, it may also update the Organization Terms and your Agreement. If that happens, Hudl will post an updated version of the Organization Terms and notify Organization via the Organization Admin’s e-mail address on file; the update will be effective as of the date that Hudl identifies in the email.
1. Key Definitions.
1.1 An “Athlete” is any individual who has been given access to a Team’s account with the ‘athlete’ feature set activated.
1.2 A “Coach” is any individual who has been given access to a Team’s account with the ‘coach’ feature set activated.
1.3 An “Organization” is the organization that you represent when establishing a Hudl account. If you set up an account (a) for an educational institution or (b) using a corporate email address, then the Organization is the applicable educational institution or corporate organization. If you sign up on behalf of an educational institution using a different corporate email address, then the Organization is the educational institution. Either way, the Organization can change your role on the account and otherwise modify the Organization’s accounts.
1.4 An Organization must designate at least one individual as the administrator for its account (an “Organizational Admin”). An Organization may designate additional Organizational Admins, each of which shall have authority described in this paragraph. The Organizational Admin has authority to make changes to the Organization’s account, to remove or add other users from the Organization’s account (including other Organizational Admins) and to take any other actions and obtain any other information related to the Organization. The Organization is responsible for the actions of its Organizational Admins and to update the Organizational Admins associated with its account.
1.5 An “Authorized User” is any Organizational Admin, Team Admin, Coach, or Athlete that has been granted access to an account associated with your Organization.
1.6 A “Subscription” is an annual license that permits one or more Teams to access the Platform and any particular Services described in the Invoice.
1.7 A “Team” is a sports team associated with an Organization. For example, a high school’s varsity football team is one Team, and its junior varsity football team would be another Team.
1.8 Each Team must have at least one individual identified as its team’s administrator (a “Team Admin”). Team Admins have the all permissions and authorities of a Coach, plus the power to add or remove other Coaches and Team Admins from the Team.
2.1 Invoices. When an Organization first signs into the Platform, Hudl posts an invoice for the Subscription in each Team Admin’s account via the Platform. When an Organization adds new Teams to its account or new Services to its account, Hudl posts each Team’s new invoice to the Team Admins’ accounts via the Platform. Upon renewal, Hudl makes an invoice available for the renewal Subscription term in each Team Admin’s account via the platform 45 days before the last day of the then-current Subscription. If the Organization purchases or renews an Organization-wide Subscription for multiple Teams, Hudl invoices the Organization Admin or other billing contact identified by Organization outside of the Platform. If the Organization purchases additional Services, Hudl may issue invoices outside of the Platform, as described in such Service’s applicable Service Terms.
2.2 Payment. Organization must pay Hudl the amount identified as due on the invoice (“Fees”) on or before the due date on the invoice, or Hudl may deactivate or limit the applicable Subscription. All Subscriptions are invoiced in advance and are not refundable or cancelable (unless stated otherwise on the invoice or the written agreement, if applicable). Organization is responsible for all Fees related to the use of the Platform by its Coaches, Organization Admins, and Team Admins. Hudl may change the Fees at any time without notice to Organization, and such Fees shall be effective upon the next renewal.
2.3 Credit Card Payments. If Organization’s Coaches, Organization Admins or Team Admins provide Hudl with a credit card, Organization hereby authorizes Hudl to charge the credit card for the Subscription for the Fees. Hudl will bill the credit card on file for the relevant Subscription renewal unless Organization cancels its Subscription or otherwise pays the Fees before the due date.
3. Data Requests.
4. Additional Services.
4.1 Hudl Assist. If Organization or its Teams use Hudl Assist, the Hudl Assist Terms also apply to such use.
4.2 Hudl Focus. If Organization or its Teams order or use Hudl Focus, the Hudl Hardware Terms also apply to such use.
4.3 Hudl Replay. If Organization or its Teams use Hudl Replay, the Hudl Replay Terms also apply to such use.
4.4 Hudl Sideline. If Organization or its Teams order or use Hudl Sideline, the Hudl Hardware Terms also apply to such use.
4.5 VolleyMetrics. If Organization or its Teams order or use VolleyMetrics, the VolleyMetrics Terms also apply to such use.
5.1 Platform License Grant. Subject to these Organization Terms, Hudl grants to Organization the non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right during the Term (as defined below) to (i) download and install the Installed Software on Authorized User’s personal computers, and (ii) access and use the Platform for internal use by Authorized Users. Organization may grant its Authorized Users the rights in (i) and (ii). As a condition of the grant in this section, Organization may not modify, transfer, or otherwise sublicense or distribute the Platform to any third party, and Organization may not disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer any aspect of the Platform.

Organization hereby grants to Hudl, and represents to Hudl that it may grant, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license for Hudl to make use of Organization’s name or logo during the Term on Hudl’s website and in any and all promotional materials (irrespective of the means of exploitation). All such use shall inure to the benefit of Organization, and Hudl shall have no implied right to any other intellectual property of Organization except as set forth in these Organization Terms.
