These Terms and Conditions ("Terms" or "Agreement") represent a binding agreement between CLICKSUMO and You. It is important that You understand Your responsibilities and the limitations to the services which You choose to use. Our services are diverse and as a result additional service specific terms may apply. If this is the case, these service specific terms shall become part of Our agreement.
Please use Our services responsibly. By using Our website or any of Our services, You agree to Our Terms. Take note that these Terms change from time to time. If You have used Our services before, You cannot assume that the Terms are still the same. You should review them on a regular basis.
You wish to use CLICKSUMO services (meaning services as provided under these Terms; hereinafter "Service," or "Free Service," collectively the "Services") as either a paying customer ("Customer") and/or Our Free Service as a non-paying customer ("Non-Paying Customer"). By applying for the services using Our online registration form You are using Our services as a Non-Paying Customer according to the Clause 3.b until decided otherwise on CLICKSUMO's sole discretion.
CLICKSUMO means the CLICKSUMO Service operated by The Frog Connection Limited, a company registered in Hong Kong and whose registered office is situated at 1104 Crawford House, 70 Queen's Road, Central, Hong Kong (hereinafter "CLICKSUMO"; "We"; Our"; "Us").
You wish to use the Services and We are willing to make the Services available to You subject to and in accordance with these Terms.
You are not eligible to accept these Terms or use Our Services if You are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Us or if You are barred by law to use Our services.
The Service and the Free Service
The Service enables a Paying Customer to use Our mobile services as set out as part of Your online registration.
The Free Service will enable Non-Paying Customers to:
Some or all elements of the Free Service may be accessed via a web application, an email gateway, a software tool and/or a web service more particularly described on our website at www.clicksumo.com
Availability and Interruption of the Service
We will make the Services available to You as either a Customer and/or a Non-Paying Customer using reasonable skill and care. You do however acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Services, Your ability to access and/or use the Services and the conducting of any given Chargeable Event may depend upon factors beyond Our reasonable control, including (but not limited to):
We cannot therefore guarantee:
We will not be in any way liable for any failure to make the Services available to You to the extent that such failure results from a technical or other failure on the part of any Network Operator or any other event which is beyond Our reasonable control. We provide all services "as is" and "as available", and We hereby do not warrant, represent or guarantee, whether expressly or by implication, that any Services are free of errors or interruptions, always available, fit for any purpose, secure or do not infringe any third party rights.
We may, at Our sole discretion, alter or improve the Services We provide to You at any time, provided that any such alteration does not materially affect the nature or detract from the functionality of the Services.
It may be necessary from time to time for Us to suspend the Services that We provide to You for routine or emergency maintenance and/or repairs and We will, in so far as it is reasonably possible, provide You with a reasonable period of notice prior to any such suspension.
Management of Your account
After the Free Service session is completed, You will have the option to request the full Service which will enable You to become a Paying Customer.
A selected member(s) of Our dedicated team of account managers will be allocated to You once You start using the Free Service under these Terms.
Terms and conditions of the Service will be detailed in written form. In the event of any discrepancy between the Service terms stipulated hereunder and subsequent terms, the latter shall prevail.
Account, Passwords and Security
In order to provide Our services, We may require certain information. You must ensure that the information is complete and accurate. We may suspend or terminate any service if You give information that is not complete and accurate. You warrant that all information You provide to Us is complete and accurate and You indemnify CLICKSUMO against any liability that may arise as a result of Your failure to provide complete and accurate information. You must immediately notify Us if any of Your information changes.
We will give You or ask You to choose a user name or customer ID and password for each account. We may change, cancel or suspend Your password which You will be notified about.
Confidentiality and Data Protection
You will at all times keep confidential all information acquired as a consequence of using Our Services, except for information already in the public domain or information which You are required to disclose by law, requested by any Regulator or reasonably required by Your professional advisors for the performance of their professional services.
We will treat Your End-User Data as confidential and will not disclose it to any third party or use or copy any part of it except for the purposes of making the Services available to You and providing any technical support required. We will make no further use of Your End-User Data without your specific authorization.
Unless We agree otherwise in writing, We will provide on-line technical support in respect of the Service and/or Free Service available to You 24/7 at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Customer Charges and Payment
The provisions of this clause apply to Paying Customers only.
You agree to pay all Charges due to Us in respect of making the Service available to You and Your access to and use of the Service ("Customer Charges") by the prepayment method and in accordance with the terms as set hereof.
You agree to pre-purchase Chargeable Event credits for each month of the Agreement or such other period as is agreed between us, in which case We will allocate to You a corresponding number of Chargeable Events credits for that period. Each Chargeable Event that You conduct using the Service will therefore reduce the value of the Chargeable Event credits available to You by 1 corresponding unit charge (subject to any variation thereof and as agreed with Your account manager).
Any Chargeable Event credits purchased by You are only valid for the period in respect of which they have been allocated, any additional expenditure of Chargeable Events, over Your allocation limit, in such period, shall not be possible. However, You will still be allowed to purchase new Chargeable Event credits and expand your allocation for the given period at any time.
You shall be solely responsible, by seeking adequate Chargeable Event credit allocation(s) and checking Your remaining available Chargeable Event credit level on Our website at www.clicksumo.com, for ensuring that You have enough Chargeable Event credits to meet Your requirements from time to time and We shall not be in any way responsible or liable in the event that You have insufficient Chargeable Event credits to meet Your requirements, and/or have exceeded Your Chargeable Event credit allocation(s), for any period.
For the avoidance of doubt, a Charge will be incurred for every Chargeable Event conducted by You regardless of whether it is successfully delivered.
If You do not pay any Customer Charges in accordance with the applicable payment terms, We reserve the right to, in Our sole discretion, suspend Your access to the Service and/or cease to allow any Chargeable Event to be conducted by You until further payment is received by Us which fully covers any unpaid Charges.
You are responsible for the payment of all bank and finance charges. Please ensure that the amount received on Our bank account, after deductions, corresponds to the full amount you owe Us.
You will not be able to receive any refund for the payment made ("No refund, exchange only"). The latter shall not prevent any refund to be made according to the applicable customer protection laws.
Either party may make use of the other party's name and visual identity for publicity and marketing purposes, without prior consent. Should this be unacceptable to either party, the withdrawal of consent must be communicated in writing. Without limitation to the foregoing, no press release and/or any blog entry may be made by either party regarding this Agreement, without the prior consent of the other party.
Rules of Use
