Terms of Service

Last updated: May 21, 2017

1. This page (together with the documents referred to on it) tells you the terms of use ("the Terms") on which you ("you", "the Client") may make use of our mobile phone application (“the App”), our website at connector.im ("the Website") - together the “Services”- and/or the use of any related service ("Equivalent Service"). The Services are operated by, and any Equivalent Service provided by, Minimum Viable Limited (“Minimum Viable”, "we", "our" or "us").

Please read these Terms carefully before you start to use the Services or make use of any Equivalent Service. You may only use the Services or any Equivalent Service if you agree to these Terms. Your downloading, activation and installation of the App and your use of the Services or any Equivalent Service indicates your acceptance of these Terms. If you are unhappy with any aspect of these Terms, then you should contact us before using our Service or placing an order with us. You can contact us by email at hello@connector.im.

The Services are designed for your convenience and if you have any comments or problems and any questions regarding any part of the Services and/or products and services featured in the Services, or if you have experienced technical problems while using the Website, please contact us.

2. The Services that we provide may only be used in accordance with these Terms. The services include, but are not necessarily limited to: (a) the ability to import personal contact information into the App; (b) the ability to order products or services through the App or Website. Any Equivalent Service is likely to provide a service broadly similar to this, but construed accordingly where the service is provided not via the Services. Notwithstanding this, and for the avoidance of doubt, these Terms shall apply to the use of any Equivalent Service.

3. Only persons aged 13 years or over may access the Website and use the services offered by us.

4. We may change, modify or revise these Terms of use at any time by amending this page. The changes made to the Terms will come into effect immediately after being posted on the Website and/or within the other Services or any Equivalent Service will be subject to the amended Terms. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we may have made, as they are binding on you. By continuing to use the Services or any Equivalent Service you will be deemed to accept such variations of these Terms. Some of the provisions contained in these Terms may also be superseded by provisions or notices published elsewhere on the Website.

License to use the Services

5. Subject to your compliance with the terms and condition of this Agreement, Minimum Viable hereby grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-assignable, revocable licence to download, install and use the Services (including for the avoidance of doubt the software therein) on the handset on which you install or use the Services for the sole purpose of your personal use of the Services from that handset, computer or any other electronic device.

6. You agree not to copy, loan, sell, resell, assign, rent, lease, publish, re-distribute, license, sublicense or otherwise transfer the Services. You further agree, except only to the extent permitted by law, not to undertake cause, permit or authorise the modification, creation of derivative works, translation, reverse-engineering, reverse-compiling, decompiling or disassembling of the Services (or any part of it or its underlying software) or make any attempt to access the source code of the Services (or any part of it or its underlying software).

Connector account

7. Subject to these Terms you may open an account with us ("Connector Account") by completing the Registration Form. Once your registration has been accepted (and until your account is terminated) you will be able to upload personal contact information to the Services, access parts of your account using the Services and (subject to agreeing any additional terms which are applicable) request services to be supplied by us. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself the "Registration Data" as prompted by the relevant registration form; and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data accessible using the Services to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. To find out more about the information we collect and how we use it, please see our Privacy Policy.

8. During the registration process you will be asked to supply your email address. This will help us to verify your identity on future visits. Should you register using an invalid email address or an email address that belongs to someone else, we may terminate your account at any time without notice.

9. You will receive confirmation emails, updates and marketing emails after you create a Connector Account, at the email address you register with. You can opt out of updates and marketing emails at any time.

10. You will also need to provide a password in order to access your account. We do not permit you to share your password with any other person. You must keep your password secure at all times. You will be responsible for any damage or losses caused by unauthorised access resulting from your failure to keep your password secure. You agree to: (a) immediately notify us if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any other breach of security by sending an appropriately worded email to hello@connector.im, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these requirements.

11. There is no charge for opening a Connector Account. You will be notified of any charges at the time you request the products or services. When you place an order for products or services, for which there is a charge, you will need to supply us with your credit card or debit card and/or other personal details so that we may process the order for you. Any charges for the products or services requested will be billed to your debit card, credit card or PayPal account once the order has been accepted by us.

12. In the event that you supply invalid credit or debit card details or details of a credit or debit card that belongs to someone else, we reserve the right to terminate your account at any time without notice and provide your details to the relevant authorities.

13. If, for any reason, we believe that you have not complied with any of these Terms we may, at our sole discretion, cancel your ability to use the Services or have access to the Services immediately and without giving you any advance notice. Further, we reserve absolutely the right to withdraw or suspend the Services where we deem this to be necessary without notice and we will not be liable to you for such unavailability.

Your rights

25. You retain all intellectual property rights, including copyright, in personal information or images that you have used whilst using the Services or in connection with your use of any Equivalent Service where you already own such rights. We are the owner (or the licensee) of all intellectual property rights in the Services or any Equivalent Service.

28. You may not upload, email, or otherwise deal with, in relation to the Services or any Equivalent Service, any images or other material where you do not have the right to do so or allow us to use such images or other material if such use would infringe any existing third party intellectual property or contractual rights. For example, you may not take photos from another website or other publication and do anything with them unless you have obtained the permission from the owner of the relevant right.

Privacy and data protection

29. Personal data provided to us through the Services or as part of any Equivalent Service which uses credits purchased by the Customer will only be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Please read through this carefully before proceeding. By providing your personal data to us you are consenting to its use in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

30. You accept that this agreement for our Services is personal to you and agree not to transfer it to anyone else, or to try to do so. However, we may take instructions from a person whom we think, with good reason, is acting with your permission. We can transfer this agreement for our Services to another company provided this does not adversely affect your rights under the agreement.

31. If you wish to allow someone to have access to your account after you die or are incapacitated, you need to put in place a process for providing your account information to them. We will not provide your account information or your content to anyone, even next of kin, unless we are legally required to do so. You may want to include your account information, with instructions on how to access your content, in your will or other estate plans, so that anyone you wish to have access to your account will have the means to do so.

Intellectual property

32. If you submit any ideas, suggestions, proposals, or documents to Minimum Viable (together, “Contributions” for short), you agree that: (a) your Contributions do not contain confidential or proprietary information; (b) Minimum Viable is not under any obligation of confidentiality regarding those Contributions; (c) Minimum Viable may have something similar to the Contributions already in development or under consideration; (d) Minimum Viable may use or disclose (or not) such Contributions for any purpose in any way; (e) your Contributions automatically become the property of Minimum Viable without any obligation of Minimum Viable to you; and (f) unless otherwise specifically agreed with us in writing, you are not entitled to any payment, compensation or reimbursement of any kind from Minimum Viable under any circumstances.

35. We may terminate or suspend the operation of the Services (or terminate or suspend provision of any products or services offered through the Services) or any Equivalent Service for support or maintenance work, in order to update the content or for any other reason. We may do this at any time and without notice.

36. You are advised to keep backups of all material provided to us. In particular, it is up to you to keep backup copies of personal contact information and images uploaded by you or emailed to us. We will not be responsible for keeping backups or for the loss of, deletion or corruption of any images or any other material used in the Services or otherwise used in connection with any Equivalent Service.

37. Because public networks, such as the internet and mobile phone networks, occasionally experience disruptions, we cannot guarantee the Services or any Equivalent Service will be available at all times. Although we strive to provide the most reliable Services possible, interruptions and delays in using the Services or an Equivalent Service are unavoidable and we disclaim any liability for damages resulting from such problems.

38. Information in the Services may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. We attempt to make its descriptions as accurate as possible, but we do not warrant that the content in the Services is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.

39. Once you have placed an order for any Services through the Services or via any Equivalent Service, the order will not be treated as having been accepted until you receive confirmation from us that this is the case. This confirmation may be provided by email or post.

40. The decision as to whether to accept any order from you is at our sole discretion.

41. We have a policy of continuous product development and reserve the right to amend the specifications of any of the Services without prior notice.

Limitation of liability

50. The Services are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. Minimum Viable does not, either expressly or impliedly, make any warranties, claims or representations with respect to the Services including, without limitation, warranties or conditions of quality, performance, non-infringement, merchantability or fitness for use for a particular purpose.

51. Minimum Viable does not represent or warrant that availability or use of the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, error-free or virus-free. Access to the internet and your mobile network is provided by your internet service provider and mobile network provider respectively, and as such is outside the control of Minimum Viable - accordingly, Minimum Viable cannot accept any responsibility or liability for any failure of your mobile network, or any losses or damage suffered as a result.

52. Minimum Viable is not responsible for the content of any external website featured as a link in the Services, nor are we responsible for the content of any advertiser’s website or the conduct of any business or individual advertising in the Services or related to any Equivalent Service. Any such links are provided merely as a service to users of the Services or any Equivalent Service and their inclusion does not constitute an endorsement by or affiliation with Minimum Viable.

53. We will not be liable in any way for loss, damage, costs or expenses (including loss of profit) arising directly or indirectly from any failure or delay in performing any obligation under these Terms by reason of any event or circumstance outside our reasonable control, including (but not limited to), any strikes, industrial action, failure of power supplies or equipment, government action or Acts of God.

54. Where information (including sensitive financial or personal information) is provided to us (whether directly through the Services or otherwise) you accept that these methods of communication cannot be 100% secure. Where sensitive financial information is provided to us we use encryption software to attempt to prevent unauthorised access to this information being obtained. However, we cannot accept any responsibility or liability for any damages arising from the misuse or loss of data or information submitted by you to us directly through the Services or otherwise.

55. We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Services and any Equivalent Service do not contain or promulgate any viruses or other malicious code. However, it is recommended that you should virus check all materials used in connection with the Services or any Equivalent Service and regularly check for the presence of viruses and other malicious code. We exclude to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws all liability in connection with any damage or loss caused by computer viruses or other malicious code originating or contracted from the Services.

56. The liability of Minimum Viable, its agents, employees, subcontractors and suppliers with respect to any and all claims arising out of the performance or non-performance of our obligations in connection with the use of the information provided under these Terms, or the rendition of services hereunder, whether based on warranty, contract, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, shall not exceed, in the aggregate, the net purchase price (excluding taxes) for such Services. In no event shall the liability include damages for loss of profits or revenue; increased cost of purchasing or providing materials, supplies or services; cost of replacement capital; claims of Client's customers; inventory or use charges; or incidental or consequential damages of any nature.

57. This limitation of liability section shall prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent provision contained in any of the documents comprising these Terms. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever computer equipment and/or software selected for use is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses and other items of a destructive nature. In no event will we be liable to you or any other any party associated with you for any direct, indirect, special or other consequential damages for any use of the Services or any Equivalent Service, or any other hyperlinked Website, including without limitation, any lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or other data on your information handling system or otherwise, even if we have been expressly advised of the possibility of such damages.

58. Nothing in these Terms shall restrict or exclude any liability that we have to any party which cannot be excluded by law and in particular, and notwithstanding any term of these Terms, our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence shall not be limited or excluded in any way.

Severability

59. In the event that any term of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms shall remain valid and enforceable.

Law and jurisdiction

60. These Terms (and the provision of Services by us) are governed by and to be interpreted in accordance with English law. In the event of any dispute arising in relation of these Terms or in relation to the provision of any products and services by us the English courts will have non-exclusive jurisdiction over such dispute although we retain the right to bring proceedings against you for breach of these conditions in your country of residence or other relevant country.

Third party rights

61. No person who is not a party to these Terms shall have any right to enforce any term under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. Nothing in these Terms is intended nor shall affect any of your statutory rights that may not be legally excluded.

Termination

62. Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies, Minimum Viable may limit, suspend or terminate this Agreement and your use of the Services with immediate effect if you have breached the terms of this Agreement or if Minimum Viable reasonably suspects that you have breached the terms of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement for whatever reason: (a) all licences and rights to use the Services shall immediately terminate; (b) you will immediately cease any and all use of the Services and (c) you will destroy and/or delete all copies of the Services in your possession or within your control. Minimum Viable reserves the right to modify, suspend or discontinue provision or operation of the Services at any time, and will endeavour to warn you in advance of any such modification, suspension or discontinuation.
