Teamable Terms of Use
Effective date: May 2016

Welcome to Teamable. Please read on to learn the terms and conditions that govern your use of our website(s), products, services and applications (the "Services"). These Terms of Use (the "Terms") are a binding contract between you and Teamable, ("Teamable", "we" and "us"). You must agree to and accept all of the Terms, or you do not have the right to use the Services. Your use of the Services in any way means that you agree to all of these Terms, and these Terms will remain in effect while you use the Services. These Terms include the provisions in this document, as well as those in the Teamable Privacy Policy.

Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly striving to improve our Services and incorporate feedback, so these Terms may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do so, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the teamable.co.uk website and/or by sending you an email. If you do not agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. Your use of the Services in any way after a change to the Terms becomes effective means that you agree to any and all of the changes. Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.

What about my privacy?
Teamable takes the privacy of its users very seriously. For the current Teamable Privacy Policy, please click privacy. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided personal information to us, please contact us at info@teamable.co.uk.

What are the basics of using Teamable?
In order to access and use Teamable Services, you must complete our registration form and be accepted by us (if accepted, a "Member") and pay all applicable fees. To apply for membership, you must sign in using your verified third-party account credentials (for example, your LinkedIn email and password. Please note that Teamable does not see or store these credentials). You may not submit third-party account credentials that belong to a person other than yourself. You represent and warrant that all information you provide us, including all information contained in your LinkedIn profile, is accurate, complete, and updated. If your LinkedIn account contains falsified information and/or is otherwise misleading or inaccurate, you may (in our sole discretion) be banned from the Services and your application or membership may be terminated immediately.

You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you have received your parent's or guardian's permission to use the Services, and your parent or guardian agrees to these Terms on your behalf).

As a Member of the Services, you will not transfer your Teamable account to anyone else without our prior written permission. You are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of your account credentials and for all activities that occur in your account.

You will only use the Services for your personal, internal business use, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you are not authorised to use the Services. We cannot and will not be responsible for your use of the Services in a way that breaks any law.

Your use of the Services is subject to the following additional restrictions:
You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not contribute any Content or User Submission (each of those terms is defined below) or otherwise use the Services or interact with the Services in a manner that:
  • Infringes or violates the intellectual property rights or any other rights of anyone else (including Teamable);

  • Violates the security of any computer network, or cracks any passwords or security encryption codes;
  • Runs MailList, Listserv, any form of auto-responder or "spam" on the Services, or any processes that run or are activated while you are not logged into the Services, or that otherwise interfere with the proper working of the Services (including by placing an unreasonable load on the Services' infrastructure);

  • Uses the public discussion forum part of the Services to advertise your product/idea or need for a cofounder.

In your public account profile or discussion areas, you will not provide the following types of information: telephone numbers, street addresses, last names, URLs, and/or email addresses. If you provide any of this information, you do so at your own risk and we assume no responsibility for the use of such information.

A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access the Services without any warning.

What are my rights in the Services?
The materials displayed or performed on the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, articles, photos, images, illustrations, User Submissions, and so forth (all of the foregoing, the "Content") are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. You promise to abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content you access through the Services, and you won't use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sell or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content not owned by you, (i) without the prior consent of the owner of that Content or (ii) in a way that violates someone else's (including Teamable's) rights.

You understand that Teamable owns the Services. You won't modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as expressly provided in this Section), creative derivative works based on, or otherwise exploit any of the Services.

The Services may allow you to copy or download certain Content; please remember that just because this functionality exists, does not mean that all the restrictions above do not apply.

Do I have to grant any rights to Teamable or to other users?
Anything you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Services is your "User Submission". Some User Submissions are viewable by other users. In order to display your User Submissions on the Services, and to allow other users to enjoy them (where applicable), you grant us certain rights in those User Submissions. Please note that all of the following licenses (i.e., rights that you grant) are subject to our Teamable Privacy Policy to the extent they relate to User Submissions that are also your personally-identifiable information.

For all User Submissions, you hereby grant Teamable a licence to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure your content is viewable on your iPhone as well as your computer) and reproduce such User Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Services, as described in more detail below. This is a licence only - your ownership in User Submissions is not affected.

If you share a User Submission publicly on the Services and/or in a manner that more than just you or certain specified users can view (a "Public User Submission"), then you grant Teamable the licence above, as well as a licence to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Submission for the purpose of displaying that Public User Submission to all Teamable users and providing you the Services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Submission in connection with Teamable and the Services. Also, you grant all other users of the Services a licence to access that Public User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Services.

You agree that the licences you grant are royalty-free, irrevocable, and worldwide, for as long as your User Submissions are stored with us.

Finally, you understand and agree that Teamable, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users (including you), may need to make changes to your User Submissions to conform and adapt those User Submissions to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media.

What if I see something on the Services that infringes my copyright?
You may have heard of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the "DMCA"), as it relates to online service providers, like Teamable, being asked to remove material that allegedly violates someone's copyright. We respect others' intellectual property rights, and we reserve the right to delete or disable Content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate the accounts of repeat infringers.

Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Services?
Any information or content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and you access all such information and content at your own risk. We are not liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services. We cannot guarantee the identity of any users with whom you interact while using the Services and are not responsible for which users gain access to the Services.

You are responsible for all Content you contribute, in any manner, to the Services, and you represent and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it. You will keep all your registration information accurate and current. You are responsible for all your activity in connection with the Services.

The Services may contain links or connections to third party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by Teamable. When you access third party websites or use third party services, you accept that there are risks in doing so, and that Teamable is not responsible for such risks. We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Services and to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each third party website or service that you visit or utilise.

Teamable has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. In addition, Teamable will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party site or service. By using the Services, you release and hold us blameless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or service.

Your interactions with organisations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organisations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree that Teamable shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.

If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you agree that Teamable is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Teamable, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

Will Teamable ever change the Services?
We are always striving to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We will try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn't always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice.

Does Teamable cost anything?
You must pay a membership fee upon accepting your membership invitation in order to become a Member. As a Member, you may be required to pay additional fees in order to access additional features and services, such as premium features and services. Teamable reserves the right to charge for certain or all Services presently offered and which may be offered in the future. We will notify you before any Services you are then currently using begin to charge a fee. If you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services.

Teamable will invoice you through an online account located in your Account Settings. You must provide an approved method of payment and you hereby authorise Teamable to charge your payment method for all applicable fees.

What if I want to stop using Teamable?
You are free to do that at any time, by going into your account settings page and suspending or cancelling your Teamable account; please refer to our Privacy Policy as well as the licences above, to understand how we treat information you provide to us after you have stopped using our Services.

Teamable is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. Teamable has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms.

Account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account. Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.

What else do I need to know?
Warranty Disclaimer. Teamable does not make any representations or warranties concerning any content contained in or accessed through the Services, and we will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, reliability, or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Services. We make no representations or warranties regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through the Services, including without limitation, opinions, advice, statements, offers, and/or other information or content made available on the Services that do not originate from Teamable. We do not guarantee the completeness or usefulness of any information offered on the Services nor do we adopt, endorse, or accept responsibility for any content provided by other users on the Services. Products and services purchased or offered (whether or not following such recommendations and suggestions) through the Services are provided "AS IS" and without any warranty of any kind from Teamable or others (unless, with respect to such others only, provided expressly and unambiguously in writing by a designated third party for a specific product). THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS-IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL TEAMABLE BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR (B) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) £75 OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO TEAMABLE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM, OR (III) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Indemnity. You agree to indemnify and hold Teamable, its affiliates, officers, agents, employees, and partners harmless for and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including solicitors' fees) arising from or in any way related to any third party claims relating to (a) your use of the Services (including any actions taken by a third party using your account), and (b) your violation of these Terms. In the event of such a claim, suit, or action ("Claim"), we will provide notice of the Claim to the contact information we have for your account (provided that failure to deliver such notice shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligations hereunder).

Assignment. You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without Teamable’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent.

Choice of Law; Arbitration. These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and any disputes will be decided only by the English courts.

Miscellaneous. You will be responsible for withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and Teamable agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and Teamable, and that it supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms, and that all modifications to these Terms must be in writing signed by both parties (except as otherwise provided herein). No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Teamable in any respect whatsoever. You and Teamable agree there are no third party beneficiaries intended under this Agreement.
