If you access or use the Application, it means you agree to be bound by all of the terms below. So, before you use the Application, please read all of the terms. If you do not agree to all of the terms below, please do not use the Application. Also, if a term does not make sense to you, please let us know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Registered users of our Applications are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Agreement applies to both.
Changes to these Terms
We reserve the right to modify these Terms at any time. For instance, we may need to change these Terms if we come out with a new feature or for some other reason.
Whenever we make changes to these Terms, the changes are effective 10 days after we post such revised Terms (indicated by revising the date at the top of these Terms) or upon your acceptance if we provide a mechanism for your immediate acceptance of the revised Terms (such as a click-through confirmation or acceptance button). It is your responsibility to check CircleHD for changes to these Terms.
If you continue to use the Application after the revised Terms go into effect, then you have accepted the changes to these Terms.
To use the Application, you agree that: (1) you must be the Minimum Age (defined below) or older and your registration and your use of the Application is in compliance with any and all applicable laws and regulations.
“Minimum Age” means (a) 18 years old for the People’s Republic of China, (b) 16 years old for the Netherlands, (c) 14 years old for Canada, Germany, Spain, Australia and South Korea, and (d) 13 years old for all other countries including United States. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for CircleHD to lawfully provide the Services to you (including the collection, storage and use of your information) then the Minimum Age is such older age. The Application is not for use by anyone under the age of 13.
Password and Account Protection
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You may not transfer your account to anyone else.
If you have reason to believe that your account has been accessed by an unauthorized entity and is no longer secure for any reason (for example, in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of your password), then you agree to immediately notify us at email@example.com. If you violate the terms of this Agreement, CircleHD reserves the right to reclaim any username you have registered.
Payment to CircleHD
As applicable, you’ll honor your payment obligations and you are okay with us storing your payment information. Also, there may be fees and taxes that are added to our prices. Failure to pay these fees may result in the termination of your subscription. In addition:
Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).
You authorize us to store and continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your service (e.g. subscriptions) and to facilitate easy payment for new services.
You must pay us for applicable fees and taxes unless you cancel the relevant Service, in which case you agree to still pay these fees through the end of the applicable subscription period.
Taxes are calculated based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase.
Delivery of Notices and Service Messages from CircleHD
You’re okay with us using our websites, mobile apps, and email to provide you with important notices. This Agreement applies to mobile applications as well. Also, you agree certain additional information can be shared with us.
If the contact information you provide isn’t up to date, you may miss out on these notices.
You agree that we may provide notices to you in the following ways: (1) a banner notice on the Service, or (2) an email sent to an address you provided, or (3) through other means including mobile number, telephone, or mail. You agree to keep your contact information up to date.
CircleHD plans are billed annually, however you may cancel your subscription anytime, whenever you like. We can refund up-to 6 months from the portion of unused subscription fee.
You agree to pay the Fees to us in full, without deduction or setoff of any kind, in U.S. Dollars (unless the Order Form says otherwise), payable within 45 days of the date of the invoice.
If an invoice is unpaid after 45 days, we reserve the right, in addition to taking any other action that we see fit, to charge you interest on past due amounts at 1.0% per month or the highest interest rate allowed by law, whichever is less, and to additionally charge all expenses of recovery.
