Posted: January 1, 2019

Effective: February 1, 2019

Thanks for using iamhomer! These terms of service ("Terms") cover your use and access to our services, client software and websites ("Services"). Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your information while our Acceptable Use Policy outlines your responsibilities when using our Services. By using our Services, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service, our Privacy Policy, and Acceptable Use Policy. If you are using our Services for an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization.

Your Whatever & Your Permissions

When you use our Services, you provide us with things like your application usage and operating system information and so on ("Your Whatever"). Your Whatever is yours. These Terms do not give us any rights to Your Whatever except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.

We need your permission to do things like storing and processing Your Whatever. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.

Your Responsibilities

You are responsible for your conduct. Your Whatever and you must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy.

We may review your conduct and content for compliance with these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy.

You may use our Services only as permitted by applicable law, including export control laws and regulations. Finally, to use our Services, you must be at least 13, or in some cases, even older. If you live in France, Germany, or the Netherlands, you must be at least 16. Please check your local law for the age of digital consent. If you do not meet these age requirements, you may not use the Services.

Software

Some of our Services allow you to download client software ("Software") which may update automatically. So long as you comply with these Terms, we give you a limited, nonexclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access the Services. To the extent any component of the Software may be offered under an open source license, we will make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly override some of these Terms. Unless the following restrictions are prohibited by law, you agree not to reverse engineer or decompile the Services, attempt to do so, or assist anyone in doing so.

Beta Services

We sometimes release products and features that we are still testing and evaluating. Those Services have been marked beta, preview, early access, or evaluation (or with words or phrases with similar meanings) and may not be as reliable as iamhomer's other services, so please keep that in mind.

Our Whatever

The Services are protected by copyright, trademark and laws. These Terms do not grant you any right, title, or interest in the Services, others' content in the Services, iamhomer trademarks, logos and other brand features. We welcome feedback, but note that we may use comments or suggestions without any obligation to you.

Copyright policy

We respect the intellectual property of others and ask that you do too. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with the law, and such notices should be reported using our Copyright Policy. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers. Our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement on the Services is:

Copyright Agent

No Refunds. Refunds are only issued if required by law.

Termination

You are free to stop using our Services at any time. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Services with notice to you if:

  • (a) you are in breach of these Terms,
  • (b) you are using the Services in a manner that would cause a real risk of harm or loss to us or other users, or
  • (c) you do not have a Paid Account and have not accessed our Services for 12 consecutive months.

We will provide you with reasonable advance notice via the email address associated with your account to remedy the activity that prompted us to contact you. If after such notice you fail to take the steps we ask of you, we will terminate or suspend your access to the Services.

We will not provide notice before termination where:

  • (a) you are in material breach of these Terms,
  • (b) doing so would cause us legal liability or compromise our ability to provide the Services to our other users, or
  • (c) we are prohibited from doing so by law.
Discontinuation of Services

We may decide to discontinue the Services in response to unforeseen circumstances beyond iamhomer's control or to comply with a legal requirement. If we discontinue Services in this way before the end of any fixed or minimum term you have paid us for, we will refund the portion of the fees you have pre-paid but have not received Services for.

Services "AS IS"

We strive to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can not guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IAMHOMER AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some places do not allow the disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.

Limitation of Liability

WE DO NOT EXCLUDE OR LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU WHERE IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL TO DO SO—THIS INCLUDES ANY LIABILITY FOR IAMHOMER'S OR ITS AFFILIATES' FRAUD OR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION IN PROVIDING THE SERVICES. IN COUNTRIES WHERE THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF EXCLUSIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED, WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO YOU ONLY FOR LOSSES AND DAMAGES THAT ARE A REASONABLY FORESEEABLE RESULT OF OUR FAILURE TO USE REASONABLE CARE AND SKILL OR OUR BREACH OF OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU. THIS PARAGRAPH DOES NOT AFFECT CONSUMER RIGHTS THAT CAN NOT BE WAIVED OR LIMITED BY ANY CONTRACT OR AGREEMENT.

IN COUNTRIES WHERE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE ALLOWED, IAMHOMER, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR:

  • i. ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR
  • ii. ANY LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY.

THESE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT IAMHOMER OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

IF YOU USE THE SERVICES FOR ANY COMMERCIAL, BUSINESS, OR RE-SALE PURPOSE, IAMHOMER, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFIT, LOSS OF BUSINESS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. IAMHOMER AND ITS AFFILIATES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES.

OTHER THAN FOR THE TYPES OF LIABILITY WE CANNOT LIMIT BY LAW (AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION), WE LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU TO THE GREATER OF €20 EUR OR 100% OF ANY AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID UNDER YOUR CURRENT SERVICE PLAN WITH IAMHOMER.

Resolving Disputes

Let's Try To Sort Things Out First. We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against iamhomer, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting dispute-notice@iamhomer.com. We will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, you or iamhomer may bring a formal proceeding.

Judicial forum for disputes. You and iamhomer agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in the state courts of Hungary, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and iamhomer consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts. If you reside in a country (for example, European Union member states) with laws that give consumers the right to bring disputes in their local courts, this paragraph does not affect those requirements.

IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:

We Both Agree To Arbitrate. You and iamhomer agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below. This includes disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this "Mandatory Arbitration Provisions" section, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.

Arbitration Procedures. Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACHCCI) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in Hungary, or any other location we agree to.

Arbitration Fees and Incentives. The ACHCCI rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees.

Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you or iamhomer may assert claims, if they qualify, in Financial Arbitration Board in Hungary. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts in Hungary to resolve your claim.

NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Mandatory Arbitration Provisions" section will be deemed void.

Controlling Law

These Terms will be governed by Hungary law except for its conflicts of laws principles. However, some countries (including those in the European Union) have laws that require agreements to be governed by the local laws of the consumer's country. This paragraph does not override those laws.

Entire Agreement

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and iamhomer with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.

Waiver, Severability & Assignment

iamhomer's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. iamhomer may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.

Modifications

We may revise these Terms from time to time to better reflect:

  • (a) changes to the law,
  • (b) new regulatory requirements, or
  • (c) improvements or enhancements made to our Services.

If an update affects your use of the Services or your legal rights as a user of our Services, we will notify you prior to the update's effective date by sending an email to the email address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. These updated terms will be effective no less than 30 days from when we notify you.

If you do not agree to the updates we make, please cancel your account before they become effective. Where applicable, we will offer you a prorated refund based on the amounts you have prepaid for Services and your account cancellation date. By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
