TERMS of SERVICE
EFFECTIVE: January 2, 2019
We'll try to make this as painless as possible, but the reality is that all Terms of Service contain legalese.
Even if your eyes normally glaze over at the word "Terms", it's a good idea to read these Terms carefully before you use Aha! because this is a contract between you and Aha! Labs Inc. ("Aha!"). The Terms apply when you use the Aha! Website, Services, or Documentation.
If you have questions about these terms of service, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

3. DATA PRIVACY AND SECURITY; CONFIDENTIALITY

3.2 Aha! will maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality, and integrity of Your Data. These safeguards include encryption of Your Data in transmission (using SSL or similar technologies) to Other Services, unless those Other Services do not support encryption, in which event, You link to those Other Services at Your own risk.

6. BILLING, PLAN MODIFICATIONS AND PAYMENTS
6.1 Unless otherwise indicated on a Form referencing these Terms and subject to Section 6.2, all charges associated with Your access to and use of the Service ("Subscription Charges") are due in full upon commencement of Your Subscription Term. If You fail to pay Your Subscription Charges or charges for other services indicated on any Form referencing these Terms within fifteen (15) business days of Our notice to You that payment is due or delinquent, or if You do not update payment information upon Our request, in addition to Our other remedies, We may suspend or terminate access to and use of the Service by You, Subscribers, and End Users.
6.2 If You choose to upgrade Your Service Plan or increase the number of authorized Subscribers during Your Subscription Term (a "Subscription Upgrade"), any incremental Subscription Charges associated with such Subscription Upgrade will be prorated over the remaining period of Your then current Subscription Term, charged to Your Account, and due and payable upon implementation of such Subscription Upgrade. In any future Subscription Term, Your Subscription Charges will reflect any such Subscription Upgrades.
6.3 No refunds or credits for Subscription Charges or other fees or payments will be provided to You if You elect to downgrade Your Service Plan. You can downgrade from any Service Plan except from the Enterprise+ Service Plan. Downgrading Your Service Plan may cause loss of content, features, or capacity of the Service as available to You under Your Account, and Aha! does not accept any liability for such loss. Aha! reserves the right to contact You about special pricing if You maintain an exceptionally high number of End Users, an unusually high monthly product, release, or feature ratio per Subscriber, or other excessive stress on the Service.
6.4 Unless otherwise stated, Our charges do not include any taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments, including value-added, sales, use, or withholding taxes assessable by any local, state, provincial, or foreign jurisdiction (collectively "Taxes"). You are responsible for paying Taxes except those assessable against Aha! based on its income. We will invoice You for such Taxes if We believe We have a legal obligation to do so and You agree to pay such Taxes if so invoiced.
6.5 To qualify for the Startup Pack billing plan, You must be able to verify that You are a technology or internet company that is less than 18 months old, with fewer than 10 employees, and less than $1.5M in funding. You can be in the Startup Pack billing plan for a maximum of 12 months.
6.6 If You pay by credit card, the Service provides an interface for the account owner to change credit card information (e.g. upon card renewal). The Account owner will receive a receipt upon each receipt of payment by Aha!, or they may obtain a receipt from within the Service to track subscription status. Aha! uses a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing and this intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use Your billing information except to process Your credit card information for Aha!
7. CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION
7.1 Either You or Aha! may elect to terminate Your Account and subscription to the Service as of the end of your then current Subscription Term by providing notice at least 30 days prior to the end of such Subscription Term. Unless Your Account and subscription to the Service is so terminated, Your subscription to the Service will renew for a Subscription Term equivalent in length to the then-expiring Subscription Term. Unless otherwise provided for in any Form, the Subscription Charges applicable to Your subscription to the Service for any such subsequent Subscription Term shall be Our standard Subscription Charges for the Service Plan to which You have subscribed as of the time such subsequent Subscription Term commences.
7.2 No refunds or credits for Subscription Charges or other fees or payments will be provided to You if You elect to terminate Your subscription to the Service or cancel Your Account prior to the end of Your then-effective Subscription Term. Following the termination or cancellation of Your subscription to the Service and/or Account, We reserve the right to delete all Your Data in the normal course of operation. Your Data cannot be recovered once Your Account is cancelled.
7.3 If You terminate Your subscription to the Service, cancel Your Account prior to the end of Your Subscription Term, or We effect such termination or cancellation pursuant to Sections 2.5(c) or 7.4, in addition to other amounts You may owe Aha!, You must immediately pay any unpaid Subscription Charges associated with the remainder of such Subscription Term. This amount will not be payable by You in the event You terminate Your subscription to the Service or cancel Your Account as a result of a material breach of these Terms by Aha!, provided You provide advance notice of such breach to Aha! and afford Aha! not less than thirty (30) days to reasonably cure such breach.
7.4 Aha! reserves the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Service (or any part thereof), Your Account, or Your, Subscribers', or End Users' rights to access and use the Service, and remove, disable, and discard any of Your Data if We believe that You, Subscribers, or End Users have violated these Terms. Unless legally prohibited from doing so, Aha! will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact You directly via email to notify You when taking any of the foregoing actions. Aha! shall not be liable to You, Subscribers, End Users, or any other third party for any such modification, suspension, or discontinuation of Your rights to access and use the Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity by You, Subscribers, or End Users may be referred to law enforcement authorities at Our sole discretion.
8. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
THE SITE AND THE SERVICE, INCLUDING ALL SERVER AND NETWORK COMPONENTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. AHA! EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT AHA! DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE, OR FREE FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, AND NO INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU FROM AHA! (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ITS EMPLOYEES) OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
9.1 UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHERWISE) WILL EITHER PARTY TO THESE TERMS, OR THEIR AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, SUBSCRIBERS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER LOSS INCURRED BY SUCH PARTY OR THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF OR COULD HAVE FORESEEN SUCH DAMAGES.
9.2 NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS, AHA!'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SUBSCRIPTION TO, OR USE OR EMPLOYMENT OF THE SERVICE, SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES PAID BY YOU DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE FIRST EVENT OR OCCURRENCE GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF THIS SECTION 9.2 IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND LIMIT POTENTIAL LIABILITY GIVEN THE SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER IF AHA! WERE TO ASSUME ANY FURTHER LIABILITY OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH HEREIN. AHA! HAS RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO PROVIDE YOU THE RIGHTS TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS.
9.3 The limitations in Section 9.1 and Section 9.2 shall not apply to any intentional breach of confidentiality obligations set forth in Section 3, nor to indemnity obligations under Section 10.
9.4 Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to You. IN THESE JURISDICTIONS, AHA!'S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
10.1 Aha! will indemnify, hold harmless, and defend You from and against any claim against You by reason of Your use of the Service as permitted hereunder, brought by a third party alleging that the Service infringes or misappropriates a third party's valid United States patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret (an "IP Claim"). Aha! shall, at its expense, defend such IP Claim and pay damages finally awarded against You in connection therewith, including the reasonable fees and expenses of the attorneys engaged by Aha! for such defense, provided that: (a) You promptly notify Aha! of the threat or notice of such IP Claim; (b) Aha! is provided the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defense attorneys, defend, and/or settle any such IP Claim; and (c) You fully cooperate with Aha! in connection therewith. If use of the Service by You, Subscribers, or End Users has become, or in Aha!'s opinion, is likely to become, the subject of any such IP Claim, Aha! may, at its option and expense, either: (x) procure for You the right to continue using the Service as set forth hereunder; (y) replace or modify the Service to make it non-infringing; or (z) if options (x) or (y) are not commercially and reasonably practicable as determined by Aha!, terminate Your subscription to the Service and repay You, on a pro-rated basis, any Subscription Charges previously paid to Aha! for the corresponding unused portion of Your Subscription Term. Aha! will have no liability or obligation under this Section 10.1 with respect to any IP Claim if such claim is caused in whole or in part by: (i) compliance with designs, data, instructions, or specifications provided by You; (ii) modification of the Service by anyone other than Aha!; or (iii) the combination, operation, or use of the Service with other hardware or software where the Service would not by itself be infringing.
The provisions of this Section 10.1 state the sole, exclusive, and entire liability of Aha! to You and constitute Your sole remedy with respect to an IP Claim brought by reason of access to or use of the Service by You, Subscribers, or End Users.
10.2 You will indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Aha! against any claim brought by a third party against Aha! arising from or related to use of the Service by You, Subscribers, or End Users in breach of these Terms, or matters which You have expressly agreed to be responsible pursuant to these Terms, provided that Aha! promptly notifies You of the threat or notice of such a claim.
11. ASSIGNMENT; ENTIRE AGREEMENT; REVISIONS
11.1 You may not, directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, assign all or any part of these Terms or Your rights under these Terms or delegate performance of Your duties under these Terms without Aha!'s prior consent. We may, without Your consent, assign Our agreement with You to any affiliate or in connection with any merger or change of control of Aha! or the sale of all or substantially all of Our assets provided that any such successor agrees to fulfill its obligations pursuant to these Terms. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, these Terms will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
11.2 These Terms, together with any Form(s), constitute the entire agreement, and supersede any and all prior agreements between You and Aha! with regard to the subject matter hereof. You are not relying on any representations or warranties other than those expressly provided herein. These Terms will control over any standard or boilerplate terms included on any document provided by You or a third party acting on your behalf to Aha! including but not limited to purchase orders. Any such terms are expressly rejected by Aha! and are not part of these Terms. We may amend these Terms from time to time, in which case the new Terms will supersede prior versions. We will announce any material changes to these Terms via email or in-app messaging at least seven (7) days prior to their taking effect. Aha!'s failure to enforce at any time any provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of the Terms.
If any provision in these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as to best accomplish the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in effect.
13. EXPORT COMPLIANCE AND USE RESTRICTIONS
The Service and other Software or components of the Service which Aha! may provide or make available to You, Subscribers, or End Users may be subject to U.S. export control and economic sanctions laws. You agree to comply with all such laws and regulations as they relate to access to and use of the Service, Software, and such other components by You, Subscribers, and End Users. You shall not access or use the Service if You are located in any jurisdiction in which the provision of the Service, Software, or other components is prohibited under U.S. or other applicable laws or regulations (a "Prohibited Jurisdiction") and You shall not provide access to the Service to any government, entity, or individual located in any Prohibited Jurisdiction. You represent, warrant, and covenant that (i) You are not named on any U.S. government list of persons or entities prohibited from receiving U.S. exports, or transacting with any U.S. person, (ii) You are not a national of, or a company registered in, any Prohibited Jurisdiction, (iii) You shall not permit Subscribers or End Users to access or use the Service in violation of any U.S. or other applicable export embargoes, prohibitions, or restrictions, and (iv) You shall comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States and the country in which You, Subscribers, and End Users are located.
14. RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES
The parties are independent contractors. These Terms do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary, or employment relationship among the parties.
Sections 1-4, 6, 8 and 9-17 shall survive any termination of the agreement with respect to use of the Service by You, Subscribers or End Users. Termination of such agreement shall not limit Your or Aha!'s liability for obligations accrued as of or prior to such termination or for any breach of these Terms.
All notices to be provided by Aha! to You under these Terms may be delivered in writing (i) by nationally recognized overnight delivery service ("Courier") or US mail to the contact mailing address provided by You on any Form; or (ii) electronic mail to the electronic mail address provided for Your Account owner. You must give notice to Us in writing via electronic mail at email@example.com. All notices shall be deemed to have been given immediately upon delivery by electronic mail, or if otherwise delivered upon receipt or, if earlier, two (2) business days after being deposited in the mail or with a Courier as permitted above.
17. GOVERNING LAW
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of laws principles. You hereby expressly agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts of the State of California, San Mateo County, for the purpose of resolving any dispute relating to the Terms or access to or use of the Service by You, Subscribers, or End Users.
