Welcome to Choco.ly!
Thanks for using our products and services (“Services”). The Services are provided by Choco Inc. (“Choco.ly” or the “Company”).
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Using our Services
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Don’t misuse our Services. For example,
don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the
interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law,
including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or
stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access.
You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law.
These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter
any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not Choco.ly’s. This content is the sole responsibility of
the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies,
and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law.
But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we do.
Choco.ly is excluded from any liability resulting from the use of inappropriate language, infringement,
false advertising, or any illegal actions while using our service.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages,
and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you
and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.
Your Choco.ly Account
You may need a Choco.ly Account in order to use some of our Services. An administrator, such as your employer, may assign your Choco.ly Account to you. If you are using a Choco.ly Account assigned to you by an administrator, different or additional terms may apply and your administrator may be able to access or disable your account.
To protect your Choco.ly Account, keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Choco.ly Account. Try not to reuse your Choco.ly Account password on third-party applications. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or Choco.ly Account, please contact us immediately.
Your Content in our Services
Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Choco.ly (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from statistics, calculation or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services. Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
Our automated systems analyze your content (including customer survey) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, data analytics, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.
If you submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, we may use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.
About Software in our Services
Choco.ly gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you by Choco.ly as part of the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by Choco.ly, in the manner permitted by these terms. You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission.
Modifying and Terminating our Services
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.
You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. Choco.ly may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to our Services at any time.
We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such data is important. If we discontinue a Service, where reasonably possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get information out of that Service.
Our Warranties and Disclaimers
We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.
Other than as expressly set out in these terms or additional terms, neither Choco.ly nor its suppliers or distributors make any specific promises about the Services. For example, we don’t make any commitments about the content within the Services, the specific functions of the Services, or their reliability, availability, or ability to meet your needs. We provide the Services “as is”.
Some jurisdictions provide for certain warranties, like the implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all warranties.
Liability for our Services
When permitted by law, Choco.ly, and Choco.ly’s suppliers and distributors, will not be responsible for lost profits, revenues, or data, financial losses or indirect, special, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages.
To the extent permitted by law, the total liability of Choco.ly, and its suppliers and distributors, for any claims under these terms, including for any implied warranties, is limited to the amount you paid us to use the Services (or, if we choose, to supplying you the Services again).
In all cases, Choco.ly, and its suppliers and distributors, will not be liable for any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable.
We recognize that in some countries, you might have legal rights as a consumer. If you are using the Services for a personal purpose, then nothing in these terms or any additional terms limits any consumer legal rights, which may not be waived by contract.
Business uses of our Services
If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify Choco.ly and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.
About these Terms
We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These terms control the relationship between Choco.ly and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.
If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
