Terms of Use

Effective date: Sept 1, 2016

Welcome to Stockwell. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website(s), products, services, applications and newsletter (the “Services”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Services, please contact us at legal@stockwell.ai

These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) are a binding contract between you and Stockwell AI, Inc. (“Stockwell,” “we” and “us”). You must agree to and accept all of the Terms, or you don’t have the right to use the Services. Your using 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 privacy policy

Will these Terms ever change?

We are constantly trying to improve our Services, 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, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the www.stockwell.ai website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means.

If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to 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?

Stockwell takes the privacy of its users very seriously. For the current Stockwell Privacy Policy, please click here.

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. 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 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 us personal information, please contact us at legal@stockwell.ai

What are the basics of using Stockwell?

You may be required to sign up for an account, and select a password and user name (“Stockwell User ID”). You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself. You may not select as your Stockwell User ID a name that you don’t have the right to use, or another person’s name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission.

You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you’ve received your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use the Services and gotten your parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf). If you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity (a “Corporate Customer”), you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity).

You will only use the Services for your own internal, personal, use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party (unless for Corporate Customers who make the Services available to affiliated individuals who agreed to these Terms), 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 aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law.

You will not share your account or password with anyone, and you must protect the security of your account and your password. You’re responsible for any activity associated with your account.

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 Stockwell);
  • Violates any law or regulation, including, without limitation, any applicable export control laws;
  • Is harmful, fraudulent, deceptive, threatening, harassing, defamatory, obscene, or otherwise objectionable;
  • Jeopardizes the security of your Stockwell account or anyone else’s (such as allowing someone else to log in to the Services as you);
  • Attempts, in any manner, to obtain the password, account, or other security information from any other user;
  • 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);
  • “Crawls,” “scrapes,” or “spiders” any page, data, or portion of or relating to the Services or Content (through use of manual or automated means);
  • Copies or stores any significant portion of the Content;
  • Decompiles, reverse engineers, or otherwise attempts to obtain the source code or underlying ideas or information of or relating to the Services.

A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access the Services.

What are my rights in the Services?

The materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, articles, photos, images, illustrations, User Submissions, and so forth (all of the foregoing, the “Content”) are protected by copyright and/or 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, commercialize 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 Stockwell’s) rights.

You understand that Stockwell owns the Services. You won’t modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as expressly provided in this Section), create 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, doesn’t mean that all the restrictions above don’t apply – they do!

Do I have to grant any licenses to Stockwell or to other users?

For all feedback, support requests, satisfaction scores, and any other submissions (“User Submissions”) you post, upload, share or otherwise provide to us, you hereby grant Stockwell a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure your content is viewable on an iPhone as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Services, as described in more detail below. This is a license only – your ownership in User Submissions is not affected.

You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicenseable, irrevocable, and worldwide.

Finally, you understand and agree that Stockwell, 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, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.

Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Services?

Any goods or products made available through the Services (“Products”) and information or content 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, and we aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. Stockwell has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the Products and does not warrant that Product descriptions or other content is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. When you purchase Products, you accept that there are risks in doing so, and that Stockwell is not responsible for such risks.

If a Product offered by Stockwell itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition as described below. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or Products or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content or Products, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content or Products.

You will keep all your registration information accurate and current. You are responsible for all your activity in connection with the Services.

If there is a dispute between participants or user of the Services, or between users and any third party, you agree that Stockwell is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Stockwell, 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 Stockwell ever change the Services?

We’re always trying to improve the Services, so the Services and Products may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, including without limitation, the physical location where we provide our Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from, or products or services offered through, the Services at any time, for any reason, in our sole discretion, and without notice.

Do the Services cost anything?

The Products available through the Service require payment. The Services to obtain access to Products are currently free. We will notify you before such currently-free Services begin carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services (in addition to any fees for the Products).

Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with a Product obtained through the Services, you may contact us at support@stockwell.ai for a refund within 24 hours after obtaining such Product, provided the Product is able to be returned in unused condition. Stockwell does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at the location provided by Stockwell to process a return. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return.

What if I want to stop using the Services?

You’re free to do that at any time, by contacting us at support@stockwell.ai; please refer to our Privacy Policy (www.stockwell.ai/marketing/privacy_policy), as well as the licenses above, to understand how we treat information you provide to us after you have stopped using our Services.

Stockwell 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. Stockwell 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. We may provide advance notice to you prior to our terminating your account so that you are able to retrieve any important User Submissions you may have stored in your account (to the extent allowed by law and these Terms), but we may not do so if we determine it would be impractical, illegal, not in the interest of someone’s safety or security, or otherwise harmful to the rights or property of Stockwell

If you have deleted your account by mistake, contact us immediately at support@stockwell.ai – we will try to help, but unfortunately, we can’t promise that we can recover or restore anything.

Provisons 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.

I use the Stockwell App available via the Apple App Store – should I know anything about that?

To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, You agree to indemnify and hold Stockwell, its affiliates, officers, agents, employees, and partners harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ 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.

    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 Stockwell’s prior written consent.

    Choice of Law; Arbitration. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the State of California, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof.

If any provision of these Terms 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.
