In these Terms, our customers and their staff members to whom they give "staff" access to their ZotSell account are called "Subscribers", and our customers' who use the Services (for example, to view or pay Subscribers' invoices) are called "Customers". In these Terms users of the Services, whether they are Subscribers, Customers, members of the ZotSell forum, people who post comments on the ZotSell blog, or casual browsers of the Site, are called "Users".

If we do so, we will notify you at the email address you provide in your registration information, if any.

Unless otherwise specified, any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions on the Site, and your continued use of the Services after such time will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. You should from time to time review the Terms and any policies and documents incorporated in them to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Services.

If we change them, we will give you at least 30 days' notice. If they do change, your continued use of the Application or the Add-ons, as the case may be, after the change indicates your agreement with the new fees and charges after the effective date of the change. Any change to fees and other charges will not be applicable to the billing period in which the change occurs. You are responsible for all taxes applicable to the fees and charges in any applicable jurisdiction.
In these Terms the content available through the Services, including all information, data, logos, marks, designs, graphics, pictures, sound files, other files, and their selection and arrangement, is called "Content". Content provided by Users, whether they are Subscribers, Customers or other Users, is called "User Content". For example, data about its Customers and about its timesheet entries that a Subscriber provides to the Services is User Content of that Subscriber, data about its payments that a Customer provides to the Services is User Content of that Customer, and Content that a User enters into the ZotSell forum or enters as a comment on the ZotSell blog is User Content of the User. Save to the extent permitted by this Agreement, ZotSell does not grant any licence or other authorisation to use any of its trade marks, product names, company names or logos or any of its copyright works or other intellectual property rights by placing them on or making them available by means of the Website or the Services. User Content is that User's property. ZotSell' only right to that User Content is the limited licenses to it granted in these Terms. Those licenses are described in Section 5 and Section 17 of these Terms. Other than the User Content, the Services, all Content and all software available on the Services or used to create and operate the Services is the property of ZotSell or its licensors, and is protected by Canadian and international copyright laws, and all rights to the Services, such Content and such software are expressly reserved. All trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned in the Services are the property of their respective owners. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by ZotSell. Your User Content is your responsibility. We have no responsibility or liability for it, or for any loss or damage your User Content may cause to you or other people. Although we have no obligation to do so, we have the absolute discretion to remove, screen or edit without notice any User Content posted or stored on the Services, and we may do this at any time and for any reason. You are solely responsible for maintaining copies of and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Services. If you authorize third parties to access your User Content through the Services, including through the ZotSell Admin or an Add-on, you agree that we are permitted to provide to them the User Content, and also agree that we have no responsibility or liability for their use of such User Content.
We do not claim any ownership interest in your User Content, but we do need the right to use your User Content to the extent necessary to operate the Site and provide the Services, now and in the future. For example, if you leave comments on the ZotSell blog or posts on the ZotSell forum, we need your license to display that User Content on the Services, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to our other Users so that they can view that User Content. If you are a Subscriber and enter timesheet data in relation to a Customer and configure your account to display timesheet data to your Customers, we need your license to that User Content to use it in the operation of the Services, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to your Customers for that purpose. Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to or through the Services, you (a) grant ZotSell and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from such User Content, in the manner in and for the purposes for which the Services from time to time use such User Content; (b) represent and warrant that (i) you own and control all of the rights to the User Content that you post or otherwise distribute, or you otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Services; and (ii) the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity. If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users (for example, if you send an order confirmation to your Customers or authorize third parties to access your User Content through the ZotSell Admin), you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to sublicense such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Services, as described in Section 5 of these Terms. These licenses from you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. They are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Services. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these licenses to any successor operator of the Services. Our rights to "modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from" are necessary because the normal operation of the Services does this to your User Content when it processes it for use in the Services.
ZotSell grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable license to access the Services and to view, copy and print the portions of the Content available to you through the Services. Such license is subject to these Terms, and specifically conditioned upon the following: (i) you may only view, copy and print such portions of the Content for your own use; (ii) you may not modify or otherwise make derivative works of the Content, or reproduce, distribute or display the Content (except for page cacheing) except as expressly permitted in these Terms; (iii) you may not remove or modify any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices that have been placed in the Content; (iv) you may not use any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods; and (v) you may not use the Services or the Content other than for their intended purpose. Except as expressly permitted above, any use of any portion of the Content without the prior written permission of its owner is strictly prohibited and will terminate the license granted in this Section, this Agreement and your account with us. Any such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws. Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in these Terms may be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise. The license in this Section is revocable by ZotSell at any time. Your use of any Add-on is governed by the End User License Agreement that applies to that Add-on, and not by this Section of the Terms. That End User License Agreement is an agreement between you and the provider of that Add-on, and you acknowledge that that End User License Agreement is a binding agreement between you and that provider. Your use of the Service through an Add-on, including any Content that may be delivered to you through the Add-on, is subject to this Section of the Terms. You represent and warrant that your use of the Services and the Content will be consistent with this license and will not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties, or violate any applicable law. To request permission for uses of Content not included in this license, you may contact ZotSell at the address set out at the bottom of these Terms. Except as set out in these Conditions, any variation, including the introduction of any additional terms and conditions, to this content, shall only be binding when agreed in writing and signed by us.
The Services may include discussion forums, bulletin boards, review services or other forums in which you or third parties may post reviews or other content, messages, materials or other items on the Services ("Interactive Areas"). If ZotSell provides such Interactive Areas, you are solely responsible for your use of such Interactive Areas and use them at your own risk. User Content submitted to any public area of the Services will be considered non-confidential. You agree not to post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create or otherwise publish through the Services any of the following: Any message, data, information, text, music, sound, photos, graphics, code or other material that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable; Content that would constitute, encourage or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law; Content that may infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual or proprietary right of any party; Content that impersonates any person or entity or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; Unsolicited promotions, political campaigning, advertising or solicitations; Private information of any third party, including, without limitation, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and credit card numbers, unless that third party has expressly consented to such use; Viruses, corrupted data or other harmful, disruptive or destructive files; Content that is unrelated to the topic of the Interactive Area(s) in which such Content is posted; or Content that, in the sole judgment of ZotSell, is objectionable or which restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying the Interactive Areas or the Services, or which may expose ZotSell or its affiliates or its users to any harm or liability of any type. Finally, ZotSell has a "zero-tolerance" policy towards SPAM: you may not use the Interactive Areas or the Services generally to send commercial or other messages to any third-party if those messages are not solicited, authorized or welcomed by the third-party, and in your use of the Services you must comply with all applicable laws, including laws that apply in any jurisdiction to SPAM and marketing practices, and with any applicable marketing association guidelines on ethical marketing practices. Any use of the Interactive Areas or other portions of the Services in violation of the foregoing violates these Terms and may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to use the Interactive Areas and/or the Services.
If you have spent any time reviewing the Services, you will hopefully have noticed that we take reliability and security seriously. We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our service operates all the time, and that it is a secure environment for your data. We use what we believe to be "best-of-class" hosting services and security technologies and services that we believe provide you with a secure and safe environment. More information about these services and technologies is available on the Site. For example, to safeguard credit card information, ZotSell encrypts all stored credit card numbers, uses restrictive firewalls to protect stored data and uses 256 bit SSL certificates to encrypt data transferred between you and the Services. However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable, the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, Internet intermediaries, your Internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use ZotSell, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability. In particular, Subscribers who enable auto-billing and choose to store the credit card information of their Customers accept these risks to the security of that credit card information. When storing credit card information using the ZotSell recurring profiles module Subscribers acknowledge that they are aware of, and accept as satisfactory, ZotSell' credit card protection procedures. Ultimately, credit card data is provided by Subscribers and their Customers, and they are responsible for its protection. Finally, ZotSell provides the ZotSell Admin to facilitate the use of the Services with other services on the Internet. If a third party is authorized through your ZotSell account to have access to your User Content through the ZotSell Admin, we cannot control and are not responsible or liable for the third party's use of your User Content.
For the purposes of this Content, Force Majeure Event means an event beyond our reasonable control including but not limited to strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving our workforce or that of any other party), failure of a utility service or transport network, act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm or default of suppliers or subcontractors. We shall not be liable to you as a result of any delay or failure to perform our obligations under this Contents as a result of a Force Majeure Event. If the Force Majeure Event prevents us from providing any of the Services for more than 4 weeks, we shall, without limiting our other rights or remedies, have the right to terminate this Contents immediately by giving written notice to you.
ZotSell may run advertisements and promotions from third parties on the Services. Your business dealings or correspondence with, or participation in promotions of, advertisers other than ZotSell, and any terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party. ZotSell is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of third-party advertisers on the Services.
The App, the Site, the Content, the Add-ons and the Services are provided to you on an "as is" basis without warranties from ZotSell of any kind, either express or implied. ZotSell expressly disclaims all other warranties, express or implied, including without limitation implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. ZotSell does not represent or warrant that Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. While ZotSell attempts to make your access to and use of the Services safe, ZotSell does not represent or warrant that the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services are free of viruses or other harmful components.
You waive and shall not assert any claims or allegations of any nature whatsoever against ZotSell, its affiliates or subsidiaries, their sponsors, contractors, advertisers, vendors or other partners, any of their successors or assigns, or any of their respective officers, directors, agents or employees (collectively, the "Released Parties") arising out of or in any way relating to your use of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services, including, without limitation, any claims or allegations relating to infringement of proprietary rights, or allegations that any Released Party has or should indemnify, defend or hold harmless you or any third party from any claim or allegation arising from your use or other exploitation of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services. You use the Site, the Content, the Add-ons and the Services at your own risk. Without limitation of the foregoing, neither ZotSell nor any other Released Party shall be liable for any direct, special, indirect or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of use, loss of profits or loss of data, whether in an action in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence) or otherwise, arising out of or in any way connected with the use of or inability to use the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services, including without limitation any damages caused by or resulting from your reliance on the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services or other information obtained from ZotSell or any other Released Party or accessible via the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services, or that result from mistakes, errors, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or email, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of god, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to ZotSell or any other Released Party's records, programs or services. In no event shall the aggregate liability of ZotSell, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), product liability, strict liability or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services exceed any compensation paid by you for access to or use of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services, as the case may be, during the three months prior to the date of any claim. You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless ZotSell and the other Released Parties from any loss, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses, claims and proceedings arising out of your use of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons and the Services, and if you are a Subscriber, from your Customers' use of the Services and from the use of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons and the Services by any person to whom you give access to your account (including as staff), including any claims made by any person that any of your, and if you are a Subscriber, your Customers', User Content infringes the rights, including the intellectual property rights, of any third party.
The Services are controlled by ZotSell and operated by it from its offices in 2 Redhouse Square, Duncan Close Northampton, NN3 6WL UK. You and ZotSell both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in regard to the Services. Therefore, you and ZotSell explicitly agree that all disputes, claims or other matters arising from or relating to your use of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services will be governed by the laws of the United Kingdom. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. Except where prohibited by applicable law, any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether preexisting, present or future) involving ZotSell and arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms; (b) the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services; (c) oral or written statements, advertisements or promotions relating to these Terms or to the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services; or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms or the Site, the Content, the Add-ons or the Services (collectively, a "Claim"), will be referred to and determined by a sole arbitrator (to the exclusion of the courts). Except where prohibited by applicable law, you waive any right you may have to commence or participate in any class action against ZotSell related to any Claim and, where applicable, you also agree to opt out of any class proceedings against ZotSell. If you have a Claim, you should give written notice to arbitrate at the address specified below. If we have a Claim, we will give you notice to arbitrate at your address provided in your Registration Data. Arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the commercial arbitration laws and rules in effect on the date of the notice in the Province of Italy. To the extent arbitration as described in the immediately preceding paragraph is prohibited by applicable law, you agree that all Claims will be heard and resolved in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in Schio (VI), Italy. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts. If you choose to access the Services from locations other than Italy, you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other jurisdiction and you agree to indemnify ZotSell and the other Released Parties for your failure to comply with any such laws.
Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, ZotSell reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, without any notice or liability to you, to (a) terminate your license to use the Services, or any portion thereof (including any use of any Add-on) and the rights of any third party to which you have granted access to your User Content through the ZotSell Admin; (b) block or prevent your future access to and use of all or any portion of the Services or Content (including any use of any Add-on) and the rights of any third party to which you have granted access to your User Content through the ZotSell Admin; (c) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Services or Content; and (d) impose limits on the Services or Content.(e) ZotSell in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your license and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other ZotSell service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your license or your access to the site. ZotSell reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
If your account is inactive for at least two months, we may deactivate your account. Deactivated accounts are not deleted - they are placed in storage and can be restored. We will notify you by email if we decide to deactivate your account. If you know in advance that your account will be inactive at some time and don't want us to deactivate it, let us know in advance at support[at]ZotSell.com . If after your account has been deactivated it stays inactive and we don't hear from you, we may terminate it at any time and without notice. You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. Account cancellation requests submitted by email or phone will not be honored. In order to cancel your account, you must manually cancel your account inside of your account dashboard. Cancellations by phone or sent to any email address will not be considered valid. It is not our responsibility to ensure that your account has been cancelled if your request was made by email or phone. All of your Content will be deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once your account is cancelled. You and ZotSell may terminate your use of the Services including your agreement to these Terms at any time. If you terminate your use of the Services you must pay the fees applicable for the balance of the then current billing period (if your billing period is monthly, we will prorate your account to the nearest month-end after termination) including for any Add-ons you may be using. If you terminate the Service before the end of your current paid up month (if your billing period is monthly), your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again. When your ZotSell account is terminated, your User Content will, shortly thereafter, not appear on the Services, except for User Content submitted to public areas of the Site such as the blog, forum, or product reviews, which may remain on the Site after termination. We may also retain an archival copy of your User Content after termination, and you hereby grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable license to maintain such archival copy for our internal business purposes. If these Terms expire or terminate for any reason, Sections 4, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, and 18, and any representation or warranty you make in these Terms, shall survive indefinitely.
If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. ZotSell may assign any or all of its rights hereunder to any party without your consent. You are not permitted to assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of ZotSell, and any such attempted assignment will be void and unenforceable.
