The Services include HaxTech’s apps and any related products and/or services, including support services.  The Services also include our website (“Website”), where applicable below.

HaxTech may modify any aspect of the Services at any time, with or without notice.  HaxTech makes no representations as to whether any information regarding any aspect of the Services is current and undertakes no obligation to update such information.

The term of the License starts on the Effective Date and ends when your Account is terminated by either HaxTech or you.

TERMINATION

You may terminate your License to use the Services by deleting our apps at any time, with or without notice, and for any reason, subject to your payment of any Fees that may be due for your use of the Services.

HaxTech may terminate your License to use the Services by closing your Account at any time, with or without notice, and for any reason, including:  (a) your misuse of the Services; (b) prevention of any attempted, threatened, or suspected misuse of the Services; or (c) compliance with any valid governmental demand.  HaxTech may notify you that your License has been terminated, but we are not required to provide such notification.

Upon the expiration or termination of the License for any reason, the Parties’ rights and obligations will survive with respect to the Fees, Confidential Information, Intellectual Property, Limitations on Liability, Indemnification, and General provisions of these Terms of Use.

SUSPENSION

HaxTech may suspend your License to use the Services for the same reasons that it may terminate the License.  HaxTech may notify you that your License has been suspended, but we are not required to provide such notification.

FEES

You agree to pay any fees required to use the Services (“Fees”).  HaxTech reserves the right to change the Fees at any time and may terminate or suspend your Account for nonpayment of any Fees that may be due for your use of the Services.

You will be asked to provide HaxTech with a credit card number or with sufficient information for HaxTech to invoice you for the Fees.  Your credit card will be charged for the Fees on a monthly basis.  The first charge will be on or about the date the Account is created, and subsequent charges will be on or about the first day of each following month.

If you pay the Fees by credit card, you are responsible for ensuring that a valid credit card number is associated with your Account at all times.  Your Account may be terminated or suspended at any time if any monthly credit card payment is declined.  If a monthly credit card payment is declined for any reason, HaxTech will endeavor to contact you, but we are not required to provide such notification.

You agree to pay all applicable sales and other taxes related to the purchase of the Services.

PERSONAL INFORMATION

You will need to provide HaxTech with certain personal information (including the personal information of any persons who you authorize to manage the Services) when you purchase the Services.  HaxTech’s collection and use of such information is subject to HaxTech’s Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into these Terms of Use.

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

The Parties may exchange certain non-public business information (“Confidential Information”) during the course of their relationship.  Either Party may disclose or receive Confidential Information under these Terms of Use (each a “Disclosing Party” or a “Receiving Party”).  The Parties agree that the Disclosing Party owns all right, title, and interest in and to any Confidential Information that it discloses to the Receiving Party.

Confidential information may include information regarding:  (a) the intellectual property associated with the Parties’ products and services (“Intellectual Property”); (b) the Parties’ products and services; and (c) the Parties.  Confidential Information includes information in the above categories:  (a) whether or not the information is marked confidential; (b) whether or not the information is disclosed in written form or verbally; and (c) whether or not the information is disclosed before or after the Effective Date of this Agreement.  Confidential Information does not include information:  (a) that was public knowledge at the time of disclosure or becomes public knowledge after the time of disclosure through no action of the Receiving Party; (b) that was otherwise known to the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure; or (c) that is subsequently obtained from a third party under no confidentiality obligation to the Disclosing Party, unless the information reasonably should be considered confidential.

The Receiving Party will use the highest degree of care in protecting the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and will only disclose such information to:  (a) the Receiving Party’s employees, independent contractors, service providers, and other persons and entities associated with the Receiving Party who have a need to know such information in order to perform their duties and who have signed agreements requiring them to protect third-party confidential information; and (b) persons and entities who the Disclosing Party agrees may have access to such information, provided the Disclosing Party agrees in writing.  The Receiving Party is responsible for any violation of the confidentiality provisions of these Terms of Use by any persons or entities who receive any Confidential Information from the Receiving Party.

If the Receiving Party receives a valid government demand for the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, such as a court order, search warrant, or subpoena, the Receiving Party will promptly inform the Disclosing Party (unless such notice is prohibited), and upon the Disclosing Party’s request, the Receiving Party will provide reasonable assistance in maintaining the confidentiality of the information.  If the Receiving Party discloses any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, it will only disclose the information strictly required by the government demand.

Upon the expiration or termination of the Parties’ relationship, or upon the Disclosing Party’s request, the Receiving Party, at its own expense, will promptly return all of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.  Alternatively, if the Disclosing Party agrees, the Receiving Party may provide the Disclosing Party with written assurance of the destruction of such Confidential Information.

You understand that HaxTech does not wish to receive any Confidential Information that is not necessary for HaxTech to perform its obligations under this Agreement.  HaxTech will not treat such information as confidential, unless the Parties otherwise agree in writing.
