If you reside outside of the United States, the party with whom you are contracting is FactorFox Software, LLC. This Agreement describes the terms and conditions applicable to your use of our FactorFox services available under the domain and sub-domains of http://www.factorfox.com and the general principles for the websites of our subsidiaries and international affiliates. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement, do not use or access our services.
We may amend this Agreement at any time by posting the amended terms on the Site. Except as stated below, all amended terms shall automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially posted on the Site. In addition, we will notify you in accordance with your Notification Preferences. This Agreement may not be otherwise amended except in writing signed by FactorFox Software, LLC. This Agreement is effective upon acceptance in registration for registering new users, and is otherwise effective on February 1, 2014 for all users.
Our services are available only to, and may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our services are not available to children (persons under the age of 18) or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended FactorFox users. If you are a under the age of 18, you can use this service only in conjunction with, and under the supervision of your parents or guardians. If you do not qualify, please do not use our Site. Further, no FactorFox account (including feedback) or User ID may be transferred or sold to another party. If you are registering as a business entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement.
Fees and Services
We do charge fees for using the FactorFox software on our site. Our Fees and Credits Policy is available and is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. We may change our Fees and Credits Policy and the fees for our services from time to time. Our changes to the policy are effective after we provide you with at least fourteen (14) days’ notice of the changes by posting the changes on the Site. However, we may choose to temporarily change our Fees and Credits Policy and the fees for our services for promotional events (for example, free 30 day trials) and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event on the Site. We may in our sole discretion change some or all of our services at any time. In the event we introduce a new service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with using our service, software and the Site and all applicable taxes.
One-, Five- or Ten-User Licenses
Standard user licenses are for either one user, or up to five or up to ten users, and priced accordingly. Those companies with two to five users will ordinarily utilize the five user license, and those with six to ten users will ordinarily utilize the ten user license. For subscribers with more than ten users, pricing arrangements will be made on a case-by-case basis.
Users are defined as staff, employees, companies or others appointed by the FactorFox subscriber company to create, edit, and/or view entries into the Factors module of their database. A user will be either the primary user of the subscription, or additional parties entered on the Setup-Company-Staff tab page in the Factors module.
There may not be more than one primary user for the one user license. There may not be more than one primary plus four staff users for the five user license in the Factor module, and not more than one primary plus nine staff users for the ten user license in the Factor module. Parties entering or editing, or viewing data only in the Clients, Customers, Consultants, Lenders, or Accountant modules are not considered Factor module users, and a subscriber may have any number of people entered as one of these designations.
When a subscriber is found to have more users than allowed in the license for which they are subscribing, we reserve the right to a) increase their subscription payments to reflect the number of users, b) deactivate their data base until the subscription charges properly reflect the number of users, and are being paid, and/or c) terminate their subscription if in our sole judgment the subscriber’s abuse of their license justifies this action.
Payments and Guarantee
At the conclusion of a free trial period, the annual paid subscription begins. Subscribers choose to make recurring monthly, quarterly, semiannual, or annual payments for their subscriptions. If at any time payments received are declined by the subscriber’s credit card company or bank, we reserve the right to temporarily deactivate access to a subscriber’s data base until the full payment due is received.
Payments are due at the beginning of each billing period. At any time during the paid subscription, a subscriber may cancel the subscription without penalty. This cancellation results in 1) removal of access to the user’s data base by all users from the company, and its clients, consultants, and others with data base access; and 2) removal of future charges for payment periods following the cancellation. Thus, no charges will be made for pending billings; the previous payment made is the last one. However, no refund will be made for unused time remaining in the current payment cycle. A subscriber is guaranteed to be charged only through the current payment period chosen by the subscriber at the beginning of the paid subscription.
If a subscriber later chooses to reactivate an inactive account, a normal monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual charge will be made to cover the new first period of use, and will thereafter recur. Please see the section Data Retention below for more information on account reactivation.
We use many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our users provide us when they register on the Site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, FactorFox cannot and does not confirm each user’s purported identity.
Your Information is defined as any information you provide to us or other users in the registration process, in any public message area (including the discussion group or feedback area) or through any email feature. You are solely responsible for Your Information, and we act as a passive conduit for your online distribution and publication of Your Information.
If your data base is placed on Inactive status, either at your request or due to nonpayment or other breach of this contract, all data held therein shall be retained on our servers for a period of 12 months. After 12 months on Inactive status all your data will be purged, after which time it will no longer be accessible. If you wish to reactivate your data base during this 12 month period, your data will remain intact and a new subscription can begin with the old data available. However, once data is purged it cannot be retrieved, even if you wish to renew your subscription.
Your Information (or any items listed) and your activities on the Site shall not: (a) be false, inaccurate or misleading; (b) be fraudulent; (c) infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy; (d) violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those consumer protection, unfair competition, antidiscrimination or false advertising); (e) be defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing; (f) be obscene or contain child pornography or, otherwise adult in nature or harmful to minors; (g) contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancel bots, easter eggs or other computer programming routines that may damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information; (h) create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers; are prohibited under this Agreement.
