Terms of Service

Version 2.1 – September 2019

This is a binding contract. Please read it carefully before using Oboloo.

These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) are an important contract between us and you:

  • If you are opening a Oboloo account or including this Agreement by reference in a purchase order, this contract is between Oboloo and your organisation. You represent that you have the authority to bind your organisation to this agreement.
  • If you are an individual Oboloo user, this Agreement is between you and Oboloo.

Oboloo has several policies (the “Policies“) that form part of these Terms:

  1. Acceptable Use Policy
  2. Privacy Policy
  3. Service Level Agreement

The “Agreement” refers to these Terms and the Policies together.

The general idea of this Agreement is that we grant you a license to use the Services, and in return you pay us and agree to abide by our terms and policies. Your failure to abide by your obligations under these policies constitutes grounds for suspension or termination of your account and revocation of your access to the Services.

In this Agreement:

  • “Oboloo,” “we,” and “us” means Oboloo LTD.
  • The “Services” means the Oboloo services, including Oboloo and any other platforms, APIs, interfaces, related web sites, networks, embeddable widgets, downloadable software, and other services we provide.

Summary

You acknowledge and agree that, as provided in greater detail in this Agreement:

  • The Services are licensed, not sold to you, and that you may use the Services only as set forth in this Agreement;
  • The Services are provided “as is” without warranties of any kind, and Oboloo’s liability to you is limited;
  • You are solely responsible for protecting the privacy and legal rights of your End Users, except as provided for in a Business Associate Agreement or Data Use Agreement between you and Oboloo;

This Agreement takes effect when you click an “I Accept” button or checkbox presented with these terms, sign a contract that incorporates these terms by reference, or, if earlier, when you use any of the Services (the “Effective Date”).

1. Eligibility

You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to use the Services. By agreeing to this Agreement, you represent and warrant to us that: (a) you are at least eighteen (18) years of age; (b) you have not previously been suspended or removed from the Services; and (c) your registration and your use of the Services is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. If you are using the Services on behalf of an entity, organisation, or company, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that organisation to this Agreement and you agree to be bound by this Agreement on behalf of that organisation. Oboloo may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity, and may change its eligibility criteria at any time.

2. Your Account and Use of the Services

To access the Services, you must create an Oboloo user account. You may also need to create an Oboloo organisation account, if one does not exist already.

When you register for the accounts, you may be required to provide us with some information about yourself, such as your phone number or other contact information. You agree that the information you provide to us is accurate and that you will keep it accurate at all times. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your accounts, regardless of whether the activities are undertaken by you, your employees or a third party (including your contractors or agents). You may create additional user accounts for users within your organisation (at an additional cost to your organisation if not covered under your current plan).

Each Oboloo user account is protected by credentials. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your credentials. Oboloo and our affiliates are not responsible for unauthorised access to your account, except to the extent caused by our breach of this Agreement.

If you do not abide by your obligations, or if you violate our Acceptable Use Policy, we may determine your account to be not in good standing and may take Remedial Action pursuant. Good standing is determined at Oboloo’s sole discretion.

OBOLOO RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DISABLE ANY USER’S ACCESS TO ANY PART OF THE SERVICE, AND TO TERMINATE ANY USER’S ACCOUNT.

You may terminate your account and this Agreement at any time in accordance with Section 11.

You are responsible for protecting the privacy and legal rights of your End Users. Your obligations include but are not limited to:

Properly configuring the Oboloo Services, including your Oboloo Services, to protect your users’ information;

  1. Configuring and enforcing user access policies and permissions for the Oboloo Services, including your Oboloo Services; and
  2. Providing legally adequate privacy notices for your users and informing them that their information may be available to Oboloo and/or our affiliates under certain circumstances, pursuant to our Privacy Policy.
  1. Fees and Charges
  2. Payments and pricing.You incur fees and charges based on your use of the Services. We may invoice you more frequently if we determine that your account is at risk of non-payment. Any outstanding balance becomes immediately due and payable upon termination of this Agreement for any reason.

Late payments may bear interest at the rate of 8% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. You are responsible for paying all reasonable expenses and legal fees we incur collecting late payments. We reserve the right to discontinue the provision of the Services to you for any late payments.

Fees are based on our measurements of your use of the Services. Our determination is final. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect your credit card issuer rights). To the fullest extent permitted by law, refunds (if any) are at our discretion and only in the form of credit for the Services. Nothing in this Agreement obligates Oboloo to extend credit to any party.

  1. Taxes.You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges and will pay us for the Services without any reduction. In the event that Oboloo is obligated to collect or pay taxes, those taxes will be invoiced to you, unless you provide us with a timely and valid tax exemption certificate issued by the appropriate authority for each jurisdiction in which you claim exempt status.

If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide us with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.

7. Suspension, Removal, and Remedial Action

We reserve the right to suspend your account, suspend your access or your End Users’ access to the Services, and/or suspend or remove an Application or Oboloo Service. Our right to take Remedial Action is in addition to our right to terminate this Agreement pursuant.

  1. Your obligations.If you become aware that any Application or End User’s use of an Application or data violates the Acceptable Use Policy, you will immediately suspend access to that End User. If you fail to remedy the violation on your own, we will make a specific request that you do so. If you do not remedy the violation within the time period specified in our request (in no case later than 24 hours), we may take Remedial Action.

We reserve the right to take Remedial Action if you are in breach of this Agreement, including if you are delinquent on your payment obligations by more than 15 days.

  1. Our obligations.We will always try to resolve Acceptable Use issues within a mutually acceptable timeframe. We reserve the right to take unilateral Remedial Action at any time, however, to enforce our policies and ensure the safety and security of our customers and their users. If we take Remedial Action without prior notice, we will provide the reason to you as soon as is practically possible.
  2. Effect of Remedial Action.If we take Remedial Action:
  1. You remain responsible for all fees and charges you have incurred through the date of the Remedial Action;
  2. You remain responsible for any applicable fees and charges for any Services to which you continue to have access;

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages. Accordingly, the above limitation may not apply to you.
