Effective November 6, 2011
1. Your Agreement with CliQr Technologies, Inc.
1.1 Your use of the CliQr service is governed by this agreement (the "Terms"). "CliQr" means CliQr Technologies, Inc. and its subsidiaries or affiliates involved in providing the CliQr Service. The "CliQr Services" means the services CliQr makes available through this website, including this website, the CliQr cloud computing platform, the CliQr API, the CliQr CLI, the CliQr Agent, the CliQr Virtual Appliance, and any other software or services offered by CliQr in connection to any of those.
1.2 In order to use the CliQr Services, you must first agree to the Terms. You can agree to the Terms by actually using the CliQr Services. You understand and agree that CliQr will treat your use of the CliQr Services as acceptance of the Terms from that point onwards.
1.3 You may not use the CliQr Services if you are a person barred from receiving the CliQr Services under the laws of the United States or other countries, including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the CliQr Services. You affirm that you are over the age of 13, as the CliQr Services are not intended for children under 13.
1.4 You agree your purchases of CliQr Services are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by CliQr or any of its affiliates regarding future functionality or features.
2. Your Account and Use of the CliQr Services
2.1 You must provide accurate and complete registration information any time you register to use the CliQr Services. You are responsible for the security of your passwords and for any use of your account. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account, you agree to notify CliQr immediately.

If End Users provide you with CliQr user names, passwords, or other login information or personal information, you must make the users aware that the information will be available to your application and to CliQr.
4. Fees for Use of the CliQr Services
4.1 Subject to the Terms, the CliQr Services are provided to you without charge up to certain limits. Usage over this limit requires your purchase of additional resources or services. During the period when CliQr Services are offered as a Beta version, and information about limits and pricing for additional resources and services is not available at a public URL, these limits and pricing shall be agreed to in writing by the parties as per a licensing agreement, prior to the use of CliQr Services.
4.2 For all purchased resources and services, CliQr will charge your credit card on a monthly basis or at the interval indicated in the licensing agreement, agreed to in writing by both parties fees and payment policies. Late payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges, and all reasonable expenses and attorneys fees CliQr incurs collecting late amounts. 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). Charges are solely based on CliQr's measurements of your use of the CliQr Services, unless otherwise agreed to in writing. All sales are final. No refunds shall be made available. Nothing in these Terms obligates CliQr to extend credit to any party. You acknowledge and agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide to CliQr may be shared by CliQr with companies who work on CliQr's behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to CliQr and servicing your account. CliQr may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. CliQr shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties. CliQr reserves the right to discontinue the provision of the CliQr Services to you for any late payments.
4.3 CliQr may change its fees and payment policies for the CliQr Services by notifying you at least fifteen (15) days before the beginning of the billing cycle in which such change will take effect. Changes to the fees or payment policies will be posted on the website (or such other URL CliQr may provide from time to time). Any outstanding balance becomes immediately due and payable upon termination of the Terms for any reason.
5. Content on the CliQr Services and Take Down Obligations
5.1 You understand that all information (such as data files, written text, computer software, music, audio files or other sounds, photographs, videos or other images) to which you may have access as part of, or through your use of, the CliQr Services are the sole responsibility of the person from which such content originated.
