Terms Of Service
The Flassh service provided at https://www.flassh.co (the “Flassh Site”) is a product of Flassh LLC (referred to hereinafter as “Provider”). By using Flassh, you agree to the following terms of service (“the Terms”). The Terms govern your use of the Flassh software (“Flassh Software”) and the Flassh Site (the Flassh Software, Flassh Site, and all related applications are together referred to herein as “Flassh”). The Terms also govern your use of any related application, including the related iOS application, the related Android application, and the related Windows application (all applications related to Flassh are referred to herein as the “Flassh Applications”). The Terms govern the use of Flassh of the company of which you are an authorized agent (Hereinafter, the user of Flassh, whether you or the company of which you are a duly authorized agent, is referred to as the “Customer”). The Terms are the sole agreement between Customer and Provider regarding Customer’s use of Flassh. The Terms may be modified from time to time and Provider will notify the Customer by posting the modified terms on the Flassh Site; the Customer agrees to be bound by the most recent version of the Terms, as modified, on the Flassh Site. Provider may modify Flassh at its discretion, provided such modification does not materially adversely affect the features of the Flassh Site.
The term of Customer’s use of Flassh shall be the term elected by Customer on the Flassh Site. The term shall consist of a period of on-site use of the Flassh Software for the purpose of photography and a subsequent term of one year of storage and display of the photographs on the Flassh Site and use of the Flassh Applications. Provider has the right to refuse use of Flassh to any person at Provider’s sole discretion.
Provider may terminate Customer’s use of the Flassh Site and Flassh Applications without notice if (i) Provider reasonably determines that Customer is in violation of Section 4 of the Terms; (ii) Provider is threatened with a legal claim for intellectual property infringement due to Customer’s use of Flassh; or (iii) Provider receives notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that Customer is engaging in intellectual copyright infringement on Flassh.
Customer may terminate these Terms at any time by canceling your account on the Flassh Site, and shall pay all amounts due to Provider for use of Flassh through the end of the month in which Customer terminates these Terms in accordance with Section 2(c).
Effect of Termination
Customer acknowledges and agrees that Provider may, in its sole discretion and without obligation, delete all data or content in Provider’s possession or control, including but not limited to photographs and “Customer Data” as defined in Section 11(a) below, after thirty (30) days following any termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason, without liability to Customer. Sections 2, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, and 14 will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement. You are solely responsible for exporting your Content from Flassh prior to termination of your account for any reason, provided that if we terminate your account, we will provide you a reasonable opportunity to retrieve your Content and Application(s).
Suspension of Your Flassh Account
Provider may suspend the provision of Flassh or the Flassh Site to Customer or remove any data or content stored on the Flassh Site without liability (i) if Provider reasonably believes that Customer is using Flassh in violation of the Terms or applicable law, (ii) if requested by a law enforcement or government agency or otherwise to comply with applicable law, provided that Provider shall use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer prior to suspending Customer’s access to Flassh as permitted under this Agreement, (iii) for any violation by Customer of Sections 3 or 4 of the Terms, (iv) as otherwise specified in the Terms. Information on the Flassh Site and Flassh Applications may be unavailable to Customer during a suspension.
Customer shall pay Provider’s then current pricing for use of the Flassh (the “Fees”); Provider’s prices are listed at https://www.flassh.co/#pricing. The Fees shall accrue based on Customer’s usage of the Flassh Software, as specified on the Flassh Site.
Payment Method: Credit Card
Unless agreed upon in advance by Provider, upon Customer signing up for an account on the Flassh Site, Customer shall provide a valid credit card number to Provider. Provider shall automatically bill Customer’s credit card based on Customer’s usage of the Flassh Software after Customer’s usage of the Flassh Software and shall send a sales receipt to Customer for such Customer’s use of the Flassh Software via email. All payments from Customer to Provider in connection with use of Flassh must be made in United States dollars.
Provider may charge Customer a late fee on any amount that is not paid when due equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, plus all reasonable expenses and costs of collection (including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs). Without limiting the foregoing, Provider may without liability immediately suspend any or all Customer use of Flassh, or immediately terminate its agreement with Customer, if payment for Flassh is rejected or declined or becomes the subject of a credit card chargeback. As a condition to any resumption of suspended or terminated use of Flassh, Customer shall pay Provider’s then current reinstatement fee.
Payment upon Termination
Without limiting any other remedy available to Provider, if the term expires or terminates for any reason, Customer shall pay all unpaid Fees related to periods up to and including the date of expiration or termination. Customer acknowledges and consents to Provider automatically charging Customer’s credit card for such amounts.
Prices do not include any sales, use, value-added, excise, personal property, customs fees, import duties, stamp duties, withholding, or any other similar tax, fee or assessment, including penalties and interest, imposed by any United States federal, state, provincial or local government entity, or any non-US government entity on Provider for Customer’s use of Flassh (“Taxes”). Customer shall be liable for and shall pay any and all Taxes and related charges, however designated, imposed on the provision of Flassh (excluding taxes based solely on Provider’s net income) regardless of whether Provider fails to collect the tax at the time of initial payment. When Provider has the legal obligation to pay or collect such Taxes, the appropriate amount shall be paid by Customer, and Customer acknowledges and consents to Provider automatically charging Customer’s credit card for such amount, unless Customer provides Provider with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. Customer shall provide to Provider original or certified copies of all Tax payments or other evidence of payment of Taxes by Customer with respect to transactions or payments under this Agreement.
