Our VAT number is 216 3016 50.
This agreement (Agreement) is between us and you (“you” or “your”), and governs your use of the Site (whether as a registered user or a guest) and the App including, without limitation, browsing, accessing and/or otherwise using any information, data, content, design, text, graphics and interfaces on the Platforms (excluding any information or data provided by you) (“Content”) or any services provided through the Platforms (including standard subscription services and premium features) (“Services”), registering to use and purchasing the Services and downloading and installing the App. Any rules or policies applied by any appstore provider or operator (Appstore) from whom you downloaded the App (Appstore Rules) are incorporated into this Agreement by reference but in the event of conflict the terms of this Agreement shall prevail.
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE COMPLETING YOUR REGISTRATION AND/OR USING THE PLATFORMS AND/OR DOWNLOADING AND INSTALLING THE APP. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT USE THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICES.
By accessing or using the Platforms, downloading and/or installing the App and/or by clicking the “I Agree” button when registering to use the Services, you agree to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.
We may revise this Agreement at any time by amending this page. Please check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we have made, as they are binding on you.
We do not guarantee that the Platforms, the Content or the Services will always be available or be uninterrupted. We will not be liable to you if for any reason any of them is unavailable at any time or for any period. For registered users, we will use reasonable efforts to promptly remedy any faults with the Platforms of which we become aware. For guest users, access to the Platforms is only permitted on a temporary basis. For all users, we may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of the Platforms without notice.
We may update the Platforms from time to time and may change the Content at any time. However, please note that any of the Content may be out of date at any given time and we are under no obligation to update it. We do not guarantee that the Platforms or the Content will be free from errors or omissions.
You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Platforms including (without limitation) configuring your information technology and software in order to do so. Any compatibility requirements for the Site will be detailed on the Site. The App may be downloaded or streamed to your mobile telephone or handheld device (Device) and any compatibility requirements will be detailed on the relevant Appstore page. If we update the Platforms, you may need to update your information technology and software in order to continue using them.
The App may be downloaded free of charge from an Appstore, however, please note that the use of the App and the Services on any device will be subject to any rates and fees charged by your wireless communications services provider.
All information you provide to us through the Platforms must be current, accurate and complete. If we at any time discover any error or omission in the information you provide to us, we may, at our option, terminate your right to access and use the Platforms and/or the Services.
B. No Reliance
The Platforms are not a substitute for the professional advice of a solicitor, mediator or other legal professional. We do not give legal advice, nor do we provide legal services, and in each case the Content and Services should not be treated as such. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of the Content. You acknowledge that your reliance upon the Platforms, the Services and any Content is solely at your own risk.
A password is required to access and use the Services. You are solely responsible for: (1) maintaining the strict confidentiality of the password assigned to you; (2) instructing any person to whom you disclose your password not to disclose it to another person or allow another person to use it to access any part of the Platforms without your express permission; (3) any access to or use of the Platforms through your password; and (4) any charges, damages or losses that may be incurred or suffered as a result of your failure, or the failure of any person using your password, to maintain the strict confidentiality of the password.
You must promptly inform us in writing of any unauthorised use of your password or of any need to deactivate a password due to security concerns. You are liable for any unauthorised use of the Platforms until you do so.
We are not liable for any loss or damage arising out of or in connection with the authorisation, disclosure or theft of your password. We have the right to disable your password and/or your account at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement.
D. Permitted Account Users
A Parent Account gives you access to and use of our standard Services but also allows you to give others limited access to the Services, namely the ability to view some or all of the information or data in your account and/or the ability to correspond with others who are linked to your account.
Permitted account users include the child or children whose life and information you wish to manage and other family members such as grandparents or childcare providers.
Permitted account users are required to accept the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement when registering to use the Services, save that Sections Iand Jwill not apply to them. Any parent subscriber accepts them on behalf of their child or children.
Parent subscribers are also responsible, however, for the failure of their permitted account users (particularly any child to whom access is permitted) to comply with the terms of this Agreement.
A Parent Account also lets you link your account to that of your legal representative and/or or a mediator assisting with your relationship breakdown or child’s or children’s residence and contact arrangements. Your legal representative will need to accept similar terms and conditions applicable to professional users.
E. Ownership, Licence and Use of Intellectual Property
We are the owner or the licensee of all intellectual property rights (including, without limitation, all copyright and trade marks) in the Platforms and the Content. Those works are protected by laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are strictly reserved.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, and only during the term of this Agreement, we hereby grant, and you hereby accept, a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable license to use the Platforms and the Content for the purpose of using of the Services only. We may download the App to your Device but we remain owners of the App and the Content.
You may make or print copies, and may download extracts, of any pages on the Platforms solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Any Content you download or print may not be altered in any way, and must respect all intellectual property rights and notices wherever contained in the Content. You agree that you will not copy, modify, alter, revise, paraphrase, display, store, sublicense, publish, transmit, sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer or distribute the Platforms or the Content, or any part of them, or create derivative works from them, except as specifically authorised in this Agreement. You further agree not to modify in any way, or delete, any warnings, notices, liability limitations, or other licence provisions contained on the Platforms or in any Content.
No other rights or licenses, whether express, implied or otherwise, are granted or intended by this Agreement. ANY UNAUTHORISED OR UNAPPROVED USE OF THE PLATFORMS OR THE CONTENT MAY CONSTITUTE INFRINGEMENT OF OUR, OR OUR LICENSEE’S, RIGHTS, FOR WHICH YOU MAY BE LIABLE FOR CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
You may link to the Site’s home page, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it. We reserve the right to withdraw linking permission without notice.
The Site must not be framed on any other site, nor may you create a link to any part of the Site other than the home page. You must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists.
Where the Site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources.
We do not guarantee that the Platforms will be secure or free from bugs or viruses. You should use your own virus protection software.
You must not misuse the Platforms by knowingly introducing viruses, trojans, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or technologically harmful. You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to the Platforms, the server on which the Site is stored or any server, computer or database connected to the Platforms. You must not attack the Platforms via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of service attack. By breaching this provision, you would commit a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use the Platforms will cease immediately.
I. Services, Fees and Payments
You may subscribe for a Parent Account for a one or two-year period and your subscription is subject to your payment of a base subscription fee. This is payable at the time of your subscription. Upon expiry of the subscription period, you will receive two (2) grace logins after which no further access to the Platforms will be granted until you renew your subscription, which is subject to payment of a further base subscription fee. You may only purchase a subscription if you are at least 18 years old.
You may elect to use additional premium features at additional cost, such as increased MyFiles™ storage space and Tonemeter™. The annual price for each of these is set out on the relevant feature description pages. If you order a feature part way through a subscription year, you will pay a proportion of the price calculated on a daily basis for the period starting with your order until the end of the subscription year. Payment for any of these features is made at the time of ordering.
Payments may be made using the following debit or credit cards only: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diner’s Club, Carte Blanche, Maestro UK. Any prices include VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.
A Parent Account gives access to and use of the standard Services to you only as set out on the Platforms. It allows you to give others limited access to the Services as described in Section Dabove. However, if a second parent requires full access to and use of the standard Services, they will be required to purchase a subscription themselves.
J. Cancellations and Refunds
You may cancel a Service at any time within 30 days from the date you subscribe for or purchase it. No refunds for any Service, partial or otherwise, will be given after an initial 30-day period has passed.
To cancel a Service, you just need to let us know that you have decided to. The easiest way is to e-mail us at email@example.com or telephone us on +44 (0) 203 514 0008, giving your name and order details, and specifying which Service(s) you wish to cancel. Alternatively you may use a copy of this form. Your cancellation is effective from the date you tell us by phone, send us the e-mail or post the form to us. We will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation.
If you cancel a Service, we shall refund you the price you paid for it as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel. The refund will be made to the credit or debit card used by you to pay.
