Terms of Service
Last updated: August 2015
Uppercase HR, Inc. (“Uppercase”) makes our website, blog and web-based and mobile applications (collectively the “Service”) available to customers.
We may change these Terms of Service from time to time, and will post any changes on the Website or notify you via email, at our option, as soon as such changes are in effect. By continuing to use the Service after we make any such changes to the Terms of Service, you are deemed to have accepted such changes. Please refer back to these Terms of Service on a regular basis.
Access and Use
All right, title, and interest in and to the Service, and any information, data, software, graphics, and interactive features contained therein, including all modifications, improvements, adaptations, enhancements, or translations made thereto, and all proprietary rights in any of the foregoing (collectively, "Uppercase Property"), shall be and remain the sole and exclusive property of Uppercase.
Subscriber will not, and will not permit any Authorized User or other third party to: (i) allow anyone other than an Authorized User to access or use the Service; (ii) use the Service in any way that is not expressly permitted by this Agreement, including, without limitation, reverse engineering, modifying, copying, distributing, or sublicensing the Service, or introducing into the Service any software, virus, or code; or (iii) use the Service in violation of any applicable law or regulation.
Prior to using certain portions of the Service, Subscriber will be required to register for an account. During the registration process, Subscriber will select logon credentials for each Authorized User. Logon credentials can only be used by the Authorized User to whom they are assigned and cannot be shared among Authorized Users or with third parties. Subscriber is solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of all logon credentials for its account and those assigned to Authorized Users, as well as for any use or misuse of the Service using Subscriber's or any Authorized User's logon credentials. Subscriber shall notify us immediately if it becomes aware of any loss, theft or unauthorized use of any logon credentials, and we reserve the right to delete or change them at any time and for any reason.
Fees and Payment
Certain features of the Service can only be accessed by agreeing to a payment plan (“Paid Service”). In consideration for the access to and use of the Paid Service, you shall pay Uppercase the fees determined according to the payment plan that you have selected at registration. You must provide accurate information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument, and you must promptly update your payment information if such information changes. You hereby authorize Uppercase to periodically bill your payment instrument in advance, in accordance with the payment plan you have selected. If you wish to dispute any charges, you must provide notice to Uppercase of such dispute within sixty (60) days of payment of the disputed charge. All amounts paid are non-refundable.
We reserve the right to change our prices at any point. If we do change prices, we will provide notice to you through an account notification or via email, at our option, at least thirty (30) days before such change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Paid Service after the price change constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount.
We may choose to bill through an invoice. If we so choose, all amounts due must be paid by the date specified in the invoice or access and use of the Paid Service may be terminated. Unpaid invoices are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the Service other than U.S. taxes based on Uppercase's net income.
Term and Termination
Uppercase may suspend or terminate your access to and use of the Service, in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason. You may terminate your account at any time upon notice to us. In the event of suspension or termination, you will not be able to access the Subscriber Data. It is your responsibility to keep backup copies of the Subscriber Data; Uppercase will have no responsibility for retaining the Subscriber Data or for providing you with access to or copies of the Subscriber Data in the event of any suspension or termination as described above.
DISCLAIMERS; LIMITED WARRANTY
The Uppercase property is provided "as is" and "as available," and Uppercase does not make any warranties with respect to the same or otherwise in connection with these terms of service and hereby disclaims any and all express, implied, or statutory warranties, including, without limitation, any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, availability, error-free or uninterrupted operation, and any warranties arising from a course of dealing, course of performance, or usage of trade. To the extent that Uppercase may not as a matter of applicable law disclaim any implied warranty, the scope and duration of such warranty will be the minimum permitted under such law.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In no event will Uppercase be liable to subscriber or any other party, including, without limitation, any authorized user, for any incidental, indirect, consequential, special, exemplary, or punitive damages of any kind (including, but not limited to, lost revenues or profits) arising from or relating to the Uppercase property or otherwise relating to these terms of service, regardless of whether Uppercase was advised, had other reason to know, or in fact knew of the possibility thereof. Uppercase’s aggregate liability for direct damages under these terms of service will not exceed the total fees paid by subscriber hereunder during the six (6) months immediately prior to the event giving rise to the claim.
Subscriber will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Uppercase and its officers, directors, managers, and employees from any and all liabilities, costs, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) in connection with any third-party claim that any of the Subscriber Data: (i) infringes or misappropriates any third-party intellectual property rights, privacy or publicity rights, or any other rights; or (ii) violates any applicable laws, rules, or regulations. Uppercase shall promptly notify Subscriber of the claim, provided, however, that failure to provide such notice shall not relieve Subscriber of its indemnity obligations unless it is materially prejudiced thereby. Subscriber shall have control over the defense of the claim, provided that (i) Subscriber does not make any admission of liability on behalf of Uppercase or agree to any settlement that imposes a financial burden on Uppercase without Uppercase’s prior written consent; and (ii) Uppercase shall have the right to participate in the defense of any such claim, at its own cost, with counsel of its choice.
