Terms of use

This page sets out the terms that apply to your use of the website www.cdk-global.com (the website”), the CDK customer extranet (https://online.cdkglobal.com/ and https://service.cdkglobal.com), and Service Connect (the “portals” and, together with the website, the “site”), which are operated by CDK Global (UK) Limited (“CDK”). Please read these terms of use carefully before you start to use the site. By using the site, you indicate that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to abide by them. If you do not agree to these terms of use, please exit the site.

Use of the portals may also be governed by the terms of any signed contract between CDK and/or its affiliated companies and you or your employer (a “customer contract”). In the event of any direct conflict between these terms of use and the terms of the customer contract the customer contract takes precedence except where the context requires otherwise,.

Your access to the site

The site is provided for information purposes only. You agree that you will not in any way (other than by using and to the extent permitted by tools and functionality that you are duly authorised to use in the portals) modify, move, add to, delete or otherwise tamper with the information contained in the site, nor will you de-compile, reverse engineer, disassemble or unlawfully use or reduce any of the software, copyrighted or trademarked material, trade secrets, or other proprietary information contained in the site.

Materials and information accessed through the website may be displayed, downloaded and printed for your own non-commercial use only.

Materials and information accessed through the portals are provided solely for the internal business purposes of the organisation that is entitled under the relevant customer contract with CDK and/or one of its affiliates. Your use of such materials and information is expressly subject to the terms of the applicable customer contract.

If you use, print, copy or download any part of the site in breach of these terms of use, your right to use the site will cease immediately and you must, at CDK’s option, return or destroy any copies of the materials you have made.

If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information for use with the site, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party. CDK has the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by CDK, at any time, if in CDK’s opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms of use.

Intellectual property rights

CDK or its affiliates are the owners or licensees of all intellectual property rights in the site, and in the material published on it.  Those works are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and treaties around the world.  All such rights are reserved.

User-Generated Content

The “Community Feeds” and “Ideas” areas and certain other sections of the portals contain content that has been submitted by users of the portals (“user-generated content”). CDK does not endorse or warrant any user-generated content and if you place reliance on any user-generated content you do so at your own risk. CDK is under no obligation to monitor or moderate user-generated content, but it reserves the right to review submissions of user-generated content and to edit or remove submissions at its absolute discretion at any time.

By submitting any user-generated content, you grant CDK a non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable perpetual licence to use, copy, edit, publish, distribute and sub-license such user-generated content. Your submission is gratuitous, unrestricted and does not place CDK under any obligation, and you expressly disclaim any right or interest in any product or service that CDK may develop based on or incorporating any of the user-generated content.

By submitting any user-generated content to the portal you warrant that you are entitled to submit it in accordance with these terms of use and that such submission does not infringe any copyright, patent, trademark, database right or any other intellectual property right of any other person and does not breach any duty of confidentiality owed to any person. If you are submitting user-generated content in the course of your employment or otherwise on behalf of any other organisation, you warrant that you are duly authorised to do so.

User Conduct

In using the portals and in submitting user-generated content you are expected to recognise the professional nature of the forum, to treat other users with courtesy and respect and to act in a lawful and ethical manner at all times. Without limiting that principle, in using the portal and submitting any user-generated content you agree that you will not:

  • i. infringe the copyright or other intellectual property right of any other person or breach any duty of confidentiality or other duty owed to any other person;
  • ii. impersonate any other person or falsely claim to be associated (or not to be associated) with CDK or any other person;
  • iii. use the portals for advertising, solicitation or any other commercial purpose;
  • iv. disclose the personal information of any other person, or otherwise infringe any other person’s rights of privacy;
  • v. make available any information or material (whether user-generated content or otherwise) to any person who is not duly authorised to receive it;
  • vi. submit any user-generated content, or otherwise use the portals in a manner, that is (as determined by CDK in its absolute discretion) offensive, defamatory, illegal or is likely to cause distress to any other person.

Without limiting any of its other rights, CDK may suspend access to the portals for any user that it considers in its absolute discretion to be in breach of any of these terms of use.

CDK aims to update the site regularly, and may change the content at any time. If the need arises, CDK may suspend access to the site, or close it indefinitely. Any of the material on the site may be out of date at any given time, and CDK is under no obligation to update such material.

Some of the provisions contained in these terms of use may also be superseded by provisions or notices published elsewhere on the site.
