Terms of Service

IMPORTANT -- READ CAREFULLY: BY CREATING AN ACCOUNT OR BY UTILIZING THE Kutamo SERVICE YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Welcome to the Kutamo service, website or mobile application (collectively, the "Service"). Your use of the Service is subject to these Terms of Service and Kutamo’s Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Terms of Service” or “Agreement”). These Terms of Service are a legal agreement between You and Kutamo Pty. Ltd. (“Kutamo”), an Australian company, for use of the Kutamo service. "You" refers to any individual who creates an account on the Service, or, if the Service is being used on behalf of an entity by an individual authorized to agree to such terms on behalf of such entity, then "You" refers to such entity. If You are accessing the Service on behalf of Your employer, you represent and warrant that You have the authority to agree to these Terms of Service on its behalf. If You do not agree with the terms of this Agreement, do not use the Service. Kutamo reserves the right to update and change the Agreement from time to time without notice or acceptance by You. The Agreement will also be applicable to the use of the Service on a trial basis. By using the Service, You signify Your irrevocable acceptance of this Agreement. The website and any downloadable software associated with the Service are protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

The Service includes, and is limited to, a service, website, or mobile application that allows You access to and use of a single Kutamo Account. "Kutamo Studios" referred to herein means an online error logging and reporting tool. The Service may contain information, data, text, photographs, videos, audio clips, written posts and comments, software, scripts, graphics, and interactive features generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible on or through the Service (collectively, “Content”). Subject to these Terms of Service, Kutamo grants to You and each user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to use (i.e., to download and display locally) Content solely for purposes of using the Service. Use, reproduction, modification, distribution or storage of any Content for other than purposes of using the Service is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from us. You shall not sell, license, rent, or otherwise use or exploit any Content for commercial use or in any way that violates any third party right. For the purposes of these Terms of Service, “Content” also includes all User Content (as defined below).

A "Kutamo Studios Account" or "Account" referred to herein means a service, website, or mobile application, provided by Kutamo Studios, where You may use Kutamo to create, update, share, and publish information, data, text, messages or other materials ("User Content").

Without limiting the foregoing, the Service is not designed or licensed for use in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe controls, including without limitation operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation/communication systems, air traffic control, and life support or weapons systems.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Agreement. In order to use the Service, You must obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, You must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device. You also understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from Kutamo, such as service announcements, administrative messages, etc., and that these communications are considered part of the Service and You will not be able to opt out of receiving them. You agree not to access the Service by any means other than through the interfaces that are provided by Kutamo for use in accessing the Service. Kutamo will provide the Service in accordance with this Agreement. Kutamo may at its sole discretion modify the features of the Service from time to time without prior notice.

REGISTRATION

In order to use the Service, You must have a valid Account. To acquire an Account for the Service, You must provide Kutamo with an electronic mail address and other information ("Registration Data"). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the access data for Your Account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under Your Account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Kutamo of any unauthorized use of Your Account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that You exit from Your Account at the end of each session. Kutamo cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from Your failure to comply with this section. In consideration of use of the Service, You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about Yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. Kutamo assumes no duty to verify such information as further detailed in the CONTENT OF THE SERVICE section of these Terms of Service. If You provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Kutamo has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Kutamo has the right to suspend or terminate Your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). By using the Service (and registering an Account on the Service), You represent and warrant that You are at least 13 years of age, and no one under the age of 13 may use the Service - except as set forth below under "Kids Under 13 and Kutamo". Kutamo may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms of Service are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and the right to access the Service is revoked where these Terms of Service or use of the Service is prohibited or to the extent offering, sale or provision of the Service conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation.

KIDS UNDER 13 AND KUTAMO

Kutamo is not directed to children, and we expect that any use by children will only be done with the guidance, supervision and consent of their parents, guardians and/or authorized school officials. Kutamo relies on parents and guardians to ensure that minors only use Kutamo if they can understand their rights and responsibilities as laid out in these Terms of Service and in our Privacy Policy.

In the event that you are a school, district or teacher in the United States and want your students, who are under the age of 13, to create Kutamo accounts - including in conjunction with the establishment of a Kutamo Gold or Business Class account - you agree that you are responsible for complying with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") and, to the extent applicable, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA"). This means that you must notify the students' parents/guardians of the personally identifiable information that Kutamo will collect, and that you will obtain parental/guardian consent before your students establish accounts or use Kutamo. When obtaining such consent, you must provide parents/guardians with a copy of our Privacy Policy. You must keep all consents on file and provide them to us if we request them. For more information on complying with COPPA, see the Federal Trade Commission's website. If you are located outside of the United States, we will rely upon you to obtain any required consent or approval from the parent or guardian of any student covered by similar laws, and, as a condition to your and your students' use of Kutamo, you agree that you will be responsible for complying with such laws.

BILLING/PAYMENT TERMS

Additional groupings of features may be added to the Service and made available to You as a paid upgrade ("Paid Plan"). If You choose to subscribe to a Paid Kutamo Studios Plan, You shall pay fees (described below) to Kutamo. Upon selection of a Paid Plan, You will provide Kutamo with the necessary billing information ("Billing Data").

Credit cards are the only payment mechanism Kutamo will accept for payment of a monthly or yearly subscription fee ("Subscription Fee") for a Paid Kutamo Studios Plan. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. Paid Kutamo Studios Plans can be paid as either a monthly Subscription Fee or a yearly Subscription Fee.

If you select a Paid Plan, You must provide current, complete and accurate Billing Data. You must promptly update all Billing Data to keep Your Account current, complete and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number or credit card expiration date) and You must promptly notify Kutamo if Your Payment Method is changed (for example, for loss or theft) or if You become aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorized disclosure or use of Your name or password. If You fail to provide any of the foregoing information, You agree that Kutamo may continue charging You for any use of the Paid Plan under your Billing Data unless You have terminated Your Paid Plan as set forth herein.

If You select the Monthly Fee, the credit card that You provide as part of the Billing Data will be automatically and immediately billed on the anniversary day each Month of the date you first subscribed. For example, if you subscribed on the 3rd October, the next bill processing day will be 3rd November. You agree that Kutamo may charge to Your credit card all amounts due and owing for Your Account on that monthly basis or upon cancellation (see "Termination, Breach, Suspension and Cancellation" and "Refund"). If You select the Yearly Fee, the credit card that You provide as part of the Billing Data will be automatically and immediately billed on the day You sign up. You agree that Kutamo may charge to Your credit card all amounts due and owing for Your Account on that yearly basis unless you cancel the account (see the "Termination, Breach, Suspension and Cancellation" and "Refund" sections of these Terms of Service). Kutamo will contact You via electronic mail to alert You upon each charge. Kutamo may change prices at any time without prior notice, but will endeavor to provide reasonable advance notice via the Kutamo website and/or electronic mail. You agree that in the event Kutamo is unable to collect the fees owed to Kutamo for Your Account through Your Subscription Fee, Kutamo may take any other steps it deems necessary to collect such fees from You and that You will be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by Kutamo in connection with such collection activity, including collection fees, court costs and attorneys' fees.

As long as Your Account remains active and in good standing, You will be charged the Subscription Fee even if You never use the service. You may, however, cancel Your Paid Plan at any time.

TERMINATION, BREACH, SUSPENSION AND CANCELLATION

If Your Subscription Fee payment is overdue, Kutamo will disable Your access to the features provided by the Paid Plan. Kutamo may, at its sole discretion, at any time and for any reason, terminate the Service, terminate this Agreement, or suspend or terminate Your Account. In the event of suspension or termination, Your account will be disabled and You may not be granted access to Your Account or any files or other Content (including Your User Content) contained in Your Account, and Kutamo may delete Your User Content, although residual copies of information may remain in our system for some time for back-up purposes. In the event of termination, Kutamo may also withdraw and at its discretion reallocate the public web address of Your Account.

If You terminate Your Account, via means provided for cancellation on the Kutamo website, or via telephone call or electronic mail to Kutamo, and You request that Kutamo delete Your User Content and files contained in Your Account, Kutamo will make all reasonable efforts to do so.

REFUND

Kutamo provides means for Account and Paid Plan cancellation on the Kutamo website. If You cancel Your Account within 90 calendar days of the date of sign up, and You request a refund, Kutamo will refund all payments You have made to Kutamo within the 90 calendar days prior to the cancellation and refund request.

PROPRIETARY/INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

Kutamo and/or its suppliers, as applicable, retain ownership of all proprietary rights in the Service and in all trade names, trademarks and service marks associated or displayed with the Service. You will not remove, deface or obscure any of Kutamo's or its suppliers' copyright or trademark notices and/or legends or other proprietary notices on, incorporated therein, or associated with the Service.

PROPER USE

Kutamo does not claim ownership over any User Content submitted on or through the Service. Your User Content belongs to You.

You acknowledge that Kutamo does not pre-screen User Content, but that Kutamo and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse, modify or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, Kutamo and its designees shall have the right to remove any User Content that violates the Agreement or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that You must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, You acknowledge that You may not reasonably rely on any Content created by Kutamo or submitted to Kutamo.
