Parlay Terms of Service

Effective Date: February 1, 2016

 

1. Acceptance of Terms.

1.1 This Terms of Service document (the “TOS”) is an agreement you must accept in order to use Parlay’s Service (as defined below). It is applicable to (a) Administrators – those who manage and run a team (“Administrators” or “Administrative Users”), and to (b) Team Members – those who are invited to join an existing team that has already been created in the Service by an Administrator (“Members” or “Team Members”). The terms “Users” (or “User” or “you” or “your”) encompass all users, including both Administrative Users and Team Members. This document describes both your rights and your obligations as part of using the Service. It is important that you read it carefully because you will be legally bound to these terms. Parlay (“we” or “us” or “our”) only provides its Service (as defined below) to you subject to this TOS. By accepting this TOS or by accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by this TOS (including the Privacy Policy, which is incorporated here by reference).

1.2 If you are entering into this TOS on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity, its Members, its Administrative Users, and its affiliates to this TOS. In that case, the terms “you” or “your” shall also refer to such entity, its Members, its Administrative Users, and its affiliates, as applicable. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with this TOS, you may not use the Service. You acknowledge that this TOS is a contract between you and Parlay, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and Parlay, and it governs your use of the Service.

1.3 Parlay reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Service or to modify this TOS at any time and without prior notice. If we make a material change to the TOS, we will provide you with reasonable notice prior to the changes either by emailing the email address associated with your account or by posting a notice on the Site (as defined below). You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time by visiting this page. The revised terms and conditions will become effective on the date set forth in our notice or on the Site, and if you use the Service after that date, your use will constitute acceptance of the revised terms and conditions. If any change to this TOS is not acceptable to you, your only remedy is to cancel your account and stop using the Service.

1.4 As part of the registration process, you will identify an email address and password for your account. You may use these credentials to invite individuals to become Administrative Users and Members (each with their own password) of your team. The total number of Users is limited to the maximum number permitted for your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login, password, and account and for all activities that occur under your login or account, including the activities of Members.

1.5 All Users should be aware that your Administrative Users may have certain rights to access your account and may obtain related information in connection with the Services. The Administrators also set policies regarding your use of various aspects of the Services. As these rights may vary depending on the account, please see our FAQs for general information about account classifications, and refer to your Administrator if you have questions regarding your particular account such as your account settings. Please also see the Privacy Policy for more information on these topics. Administrators are solely responsible for informing Members of the applicable company policies, obtaining any legally required member consent to such policies, and for ensuring that all uses of the Services comply with applicable federal, state and/or international privacy laws, including but not limited to, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C. § 2510 et seq.

1.6 By accessing or using the Services, you affirm that you are at least 18 years of age (or have reached the age of majority if that is not 18 years of age where you live). You represent that you are fully able and competent to enter into and comply with the terms and conditions in this TOS. The Service is not directed to children under 13, so if you are under 13 years of age, you are not permitted to access or use the Services. If we become aware that you are using the Service even though you are under 13, we will deactivate your account.

1.7 If you are a school or teacher in the United States and want your students, who are over 13, to use the Service, including in conjunction with the establishment of a Service account for the school or a group of students at the school, you are responsible for complying with the U.S. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”). This means you must notify those students’ parents/guardians of the personally identifiable information you will collect and share with Parlay and obtain parental/guardian consent before your students establish accounts or use the Service. When obtaining such consent, you should provide parents/guardians with a copy of our Privacy Policy. You must keep all consents on file and provide them to us if we request them. If you are located outside of the United States, we will rely upon you to obtain any required consent or approval from the parent or guardian of any student covered by similar laws and, as a condition to your and your students’ use of the Service, you will comply with such laws.

 

2. Description of Service.

2.1 The “Service(s)” means (a) Parlay’s real-time collaboration and sharing services and related systems and technologies, as well as the website http://parlayconcepts.com (the “Site”), and (b) all software (including the Software, as defined below), websites, applications, data, reports, text, images, and other content made available by or on behalf of Parlay through any of the foregoing. The “Service” does not include Your Data (as defined below) or any software application or service that is provided by you or a third party, which you use in connection with the Service. Any modifications and new features added to the Service are also subject to this TOS. Parlay reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service (or any Service plan) or any feature or functionality thereof at any time without notice to you. All rights, title and interest in and to the Service and its components (including all intellectual property rights) will remain with and belong exclusively to Parlay.

 

3. Access and Use of the Service.

3.1 You may access and use the Service only for lawful, authorized purposes and you shall not misuse the Service in any manner (as determined by Parlay in its sole discretion). See Section 6 for specific provisions outlining prohibited uses of the Service. Administrative Users shall be responsible for all actions by Members on their team. You shall comply with any codes of conduct, policies, storage limitations, or other notices Parlay provides you or publishes in connection with the Service from time to time, but if any of those policies materially change the TOS, we will provide you with reasonable notice as provided in Section 1 above. You shall promptly notify Parlay if you learn of a security breach related to the Service.

3.2 The Services are owned by Parlay and are or may be protected by patent, copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property laws of the United States and foreign countries. Except as expressly provided in the Terms of Service, Parlay and its licensors exclusively own or control all right, title, and interest in and to the Services, including all associated intellectual property rights. You will not remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Services. All trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, and designs, whether registered or unregistered, used in connection with the Services are owned by Parlay or its third party licensors. You may not use or display any such trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, or designs owned by Parlay or its third party licensors without the appropriate owner's prior written consent. Any software that may be made available by or on behalf of Parlay in connection with the Service, including Parlay’s mobile and desktop applications, (“Software”) contains proprietary and confidential information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws. Subject to the terms and conditions of this TOS, Parlay only grants you a personal, non-sublicensable and non-exclusive license to use the object code of any Software solely in connection with the Service. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

3.3 Parlay reserves the right to use your name or logo as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on the Site and in other communication with existing or potential Parlay customers. For example, we might list your company or company’s logo on one of our webpages under lists of Parlay customers. We don’t want to list customers who don’t want to be listed, so you may send an email to info [at] parlayconcepts [dot] com stating that you do not wish to be used as a reference.

 

4. Your Data Rights and Related Responsibilities.

4.1 "Your Data" means any data and content you upload, post, transmit or otherwise made available via the Services (which may include data you elect to import from Non-Parlay products you use). "Your Data" includes concept boards you create, messages you send, files you upload, comments you make on files, profile information and anything else you enter or upload into the Service. Parlay will make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that all facilities used to store and process Your Data meet a high standard for security. For more information on our current practices and policies regarding data privacy, security and confidentiality, please email info [at] parlayconcepts [dot] com.

4.2 In order for us to provide the Service to you, we require that you grant us certain rights with respect to Your Data. For example, we need to be able to transmit, store and copy Your Data in order to display it to you and your Team Members, to index it so you are able to search it, to make backups to prevent data loss, and so on. This includes, but is not limited to, the right to transfer, store and process Your Data in the U.S. or in any other country in which Parlay or its agents maintain facilities. Your acceptance of this TOS gives us the permission to do so and grants us any such rights necessary to provide the Service to you, only for the purpose of providing the Service (and for no other purpose). This permission includes allowing us to use third-party service providers (such as Microsoft Azure Services) in the operation and administration of the Service and the rights granted to us are extended to these third parties to the degree necessary in order for the Service to be provided.

4.3 If you send us any feedback or suggestions regarding the Service, you grant Parlay an unlimited, irrevocable, perpetual, free license to use any such feedback or suggestions for any purpose without any obligation to you.

4.4 You are solely responsible for your conduct (including by and between all Users), the content of Your Data, and all communications with others while using the Services. We may choose to review Public Content (as defined below) for compliance with our policies and guidelines, but you acknowledge that Parlay has no obligation to monitor any information on the Services. However, Parlay may remove or disable any Public Content at any time for any reason or for no reason at all. For example, if you upload files that do not belong to you and use a feature of the Service to make these files available publicly, we can delete those files. We are not responsible for the accuracy, appropriateness, or legality of Your Data or any other information you and your Users may be able to access using the Services. The Services provide features that allow you and your Users to share Your Data and other materials with others or to make it public. Please consider carefully what you allow to be shared or made public.

 

5. Payment.

5.1 To the extent you use a Service plan that is made available for a fee, you will be required to select a payment plan and provide accurate information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes in your payment information. You agree to pay Parlay in accordance with the terms set forth on the Site (currently, parlayconcepts.com/pricing and related pages) and this TOS, and you authorize Parlay or its third-party payment processors to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with such terms.

5.2 If you dispute any charges you must let Parlay know within sixty (60) days after the date that Parlay charges you. All amounts paid are non-refundable and we reserve the right to change our prices in the future. If we increase our prices for your Service plan, we will provide notice of the change on the Site and in email to you at least 30 days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Service after the price change goes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount. Parlay may choose to bill you through an invoice, in which case, full payment for invoices issued must be received by the date specified in the invoice. Past due fees are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with Services other than U.S. taxes based on Parlay’s net income.

For example, we may choose to review publically visible content (“Public Content”) posted using a feature or other mechanism for sharing content outside of your team’s use of the Service for compliance with our policies and guidelines. If, for instance, you upload files that do not belong to you and make these files available publicly, we can delete those files.

You acknowledge, consent and agree that Parlay may access, preserve and disclose your account information and Your Data if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with legal process; (ii) enforce the TOS; (iii) respond to claims that any of Your Data violates the rights of third parties; (iv) respond to your requests for customer service; or (v) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Parlay, its users and the public.

Further, you understand that Your Data may be transmitted or handled in an unencrypted manner if you choose to use unencrypted gateways to connect to the Service.
