Limitation of Liability
In conjunction with the Limitation of Warranties as explained above, you expressly understand and agree that any claim against us shall be limited to the amount you paid, if any, for use of products and/or services. CanaryTEXT, LLC will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or exemplary loss or damages which may be incurred by you as a result of using our Resources, or as a result of any changes, data loss or corruption, cancellation, loss of access, or downtime to the full extent that applicable limitation of liability laws apply.
All content and materials available on https://www.canarytext.com, including but not limited to text, graphics, website name, code, images and logos are the intellectual property of CanaryTEXT, LLC, and are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law. Any inappropriate use, including but not limited to the reproduction, distribution, display or transmission of any content on this site is strictly prohibited, unless specifically authorized by CanaryTEXT, LLC.
Certain parts of the Site may be accessed and used without charge. For use of certain Services, you are required to pay applicable fees which may change from time to time subject only to your right to terminate such Services in accordance with the terms thereof. Fees vary by Service. You are responsible for payment of all applicable fees incurred by your account. All fees due from you to us hereunder, including to the extent applicable, quarterly subscription fees, annual subscription fees, one-time product purchase fees, recurring fees, quarterly and annual renewal fees, third-party fees, applicable taxes, and charge-back fees are referred to herein as “Service Fees”. We do not collect a sales and or use tax on the sale of Services to you. If any tax is to be paid to state or local governments by a purchaser of our Services, it is your responsibility to report and make such tax payments in compliance with all applicable laws. In the event that we collect any taxes on the sale and or use of Services, such taxes will be itemized separately on your invoice.
You agree that we may charge all Service Fees to the payment method (e.g., credit card, debit card, etc.) you have provided in your Registration Information. Unless written cancelation is delivered, your subscription will auto renew at the end of the term. You are responsible for the timely payment of all Service Fees at the time the Services are ordered by you. It is your responsibility to notify us if your payment method has changed by making the appropriate changes to your account settings. If you do not provide a valid payment method, or if your designated payment method is determined by us to be inactive for any reason, we may immediately discontinue providing Services to you. Purchases will appear on your credit or debit card statements as “CanaryTEXT” You agree not to cause your credit or debit card company to reverse or “chargeback” any Service Fees charged in accordance with these Terms and Conditions; and in the event you do so, we may terminate your use of the Site and Services, and you agree to reimburse us for any costs incurred in responding to such chargeback, including, without limitation, our actual costs paid to the credit or debit card company, including chargeback fees, and the value of the time our employees spend on the matter as determined in our discretion in good faith.
We have the right to change your billing period at the renewal of your current contract, such that the new billing period results in an equal or lower effective monthly rate compared to the current contract. For example, CanaryTEXT may decide to provide additional payment flexibility to customers who have been active subscribers for a year by offering the same discounted Annual plan, paid on a Quarterly basis.
We want you to be satisfied with the Services. However, when you purchase Services from us, we make a commitment to our partners for the length of your campaign. Because we are making this commitment on your behalf, and incur costs as a result, we do not offer refunds for the Services once you have purchased them. However, in two limited situations we may provide a refund:
Product malfunction. In order to be considered a “product malfunction” the user must report the malfunction to firstname.lastname@example.org while the Services are still active, and the product malfunction must be verified by us. The final determination as to whether a report qualifies as a product malfunction is at our sole and absolute discretion.
We are a marketing awareness, customer and employee engagement tool. The Services require initial set up by the customer at the responsibility of the customer. The Services are functioning properly when content is delivered via text. The Services are not designed to be a direct “lead generation” tool. As such, if your campaign does not deliver leads or phone calls to you, that does not qualify as a product malfunction.
Billing error. In order to be considered a “billing error” the user must provide either: (i) the cancellation confirmation number; or (ii) must forward the cancellation confirmation email to email@example.com . The cancellation confirmation number or the cancellation confirmation email must show that the user canceled the Services before (not on or after) the renewal date on file for the Service in question.
If you elect to cancel the Services early, we do not provide a refund for the remainder of the quarter, year, or billing period for the canceled Service.
Termination of Use
- You may terminate your use of the Site at any time. You may terminate these Terms and Conditions with respect to any Service provided you have paid all applicable Service Fees by effecting a termination from your account.
- We may cancel your user registration and terminate your use of the Site or Services at any time with or without cause, in our sole discretion, and with or without notice, including for your failure to make any payment when due or your breach of your representations, warranties, and covenants in these Terms and Conditions; provided, however, that we have no obligation to monitor your use of the Site or Services.
- We may delete any of your User Content, information, or other data from the Site or Services at any time, and we have no obligation to maintain copies of any deleted information.
- Any provisions of these Terms and Conditions that by their nature should continue after termination of your use of the Site or any Services will continue to apply even after the expiration or termination of these Terms and Conditions or your use of the Site or any Services.
