Terms of Service

These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) are entered into by and between you and Projecturf, LLC. (“Projecturf” or “we”).

These terms were last updated on July 30th, 2013.

These Terms govern your use of the Projecturf Web-based software application (the “Service”).

You and Projecturf agree as follows:

1. The Service. Projecturf will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Service to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You agree and acknowledge that from time to time the Service may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including without limitation, equipment malfunction, periodic maintenance procedures or repairs that Projecturf may undertake from time to time or any causes beyond the control of Projecturf. In addition, Projecturf may, in its sole discretion, discontinue the Service at any time without liability and/or notice to you.

2. Your Account. You will need to create an account in order to use the Service. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account so you must keep your account password secure. In other words, you may be liable to Projecturf or others as a result of any unauthorized use of your account. Thus, it is your responsibility to notify Projecturf immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. We will not be liable for losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account. You may not, under any circumstances, use another’s account without permission. Projecturf reserves the right to terminate your account at any time for any reason or no reason at all. Each person or entity may only maintain one account per email address.

3. Access to the Service.

a. Paid Service. We offer a paid version of the Service. We will provide you access to the paid version of the Service with the first 14 days free after you create an account (the “Paid Service”). After registering an account, in order to receive the Paid Service you must provide us with a valid credit card or debit card. During the free trial period, after inputting your valid credit or debit card, your payment method (i.e., credit card or debit card) will be authorized for up to approximately five dollars. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization; however, no charge will be made against the payment method. This authorization is simply to confirm that you have provided us with a valid payment method.

WE WILL NOT CHARGE YOU FOR THE PAID SERVICE UNLESS YOU FAIL TO CANCEL THE PAID SERVICE WITHIN THE FIRST 14 DAYS AFTER CREATING YOUR ACCOUNT.

In other words, if you do not cancel the Paid Service within 14 days after creating your Paid Service account, you will be charged the monthly fee per the plan for every 14 days thereafter (“Monthly Payment”). We do not send monthly invoices, but you can review your transaction history and print invoices within your account. You authorize Projecturf to receive payment by credit card, debit card or PayPal account information for the initial and each subsequent Monthly Payment. You agree that no additional notice or consent is required before Projecturf charges your credit card, debit card or PayPal account information for each Monthly Payment.

WE WILL NOT CHARGE YOU FOR THE PAID SERVICE IF YOU CANCEL THE PAID SERVICE WITHIN THE FIRST 14 DAYS AFTER CREATING YOUR ACCOUNT.

In other words, if you do not cancel the Paid Service within 14 days after creating your Paid Service account and inputting a valid credit card or debit cad, you will be charged the monthly fee per the plan for every month thereafter (“Monthly Payment”). We do not send monthly invoices, but you can review your transaction history and print invoices within your account. You authorize Projecturf to receive payment by credit card or debit card for the initial and each subsequent Monthly Payment. You agree that no additional notice or consent is required before Projecturf charges your credit card or debit card for each Monthly Payment.

We offer a number of plans within the Paid Service. Once you have signed up for a plan, you may view the details of your specific plan by reviewing the “Subscription” section on the “Account” page. You may move among the various plans of the Paid Service at any time. We will automatically charge you a pro-rated Monthly Payment when you move among the various plans. We do not offer refunds for downgrades. Downgrading your Paid Service may cause the loss or partial loss of your account data and features. Projecturf assumes no liability associated with such loss.

In addition, we will provide you with the option to pay for 12 months of the Paid Service after you have created your account. In other words, you can make a one-time payment for 12 months of the Paid Service. If you elect to make a one-time payment for 12 months of the Paid Service and you do not cancel your account within 12 months of creating it, you authorize Projecturf to receive payment by credit card or debit card for an additional 12 months at the then current annual rate.

We may change the fees and charges in effect for the various plans or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by posting them on our website, blog, forum, and/or via email.

You may cancel the Paid Service at any time by logging into your account and clicking on the “Account” link in menu that appears when you hover over your name in upper right corner and selecting “Cancel” under the “Subscription” section. There is a “Cancel subscription” link that must be clicked to get to the cancellation page. The Cancel Account screen confirms your request by asking for your password to prevent accidental cancellations and provides a cancellation confirmation. Please note that there are absolutely no refunds. In other words, you can cancel the Paid Service at any time but we will not provide you with a refund under any circumstances. It is your sole responsibility to manage your account at all times, including your plans and cancellation of your account, if necessary.

Everything under and within your account will be deleted immediately upon cancellation (this includes all content, files, contacts, data, etc.). This information is permanently deleted and cannot be restored. If you cancel the Paid Service before your next Monthly Payment, you will not be charged again.

If we cannot process the Monthly Payment with the credit card or debit card on file for any reason we will immediately suspend your account and your use of the Paid Service. If you do not provide us with a credit card or debit card with sufficient funds to pay the Monthly Payment within 30 days after your account is suspended, your account and all associated data will be deleted. Late Payments bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permitted by law. All payments pursuant to this Agreement shall be in United States Dollars.

b. The Free Service. You do not need to input your credit card in order to access the free version of the Service for 14 days (the “Trial Period”). You may upgrade to the Paid Service at any time during the Trial Period by selecting a plan under “Subscription” from the “Account” page and selecting a plan. In order to upgrade to the Paid Service, you must input a valid credit card or debit card. If you upgrade your plan to a Paid Service during the Trial Period, you will not be charged until the Trial Period has ended. We will then charge you a Monthly Payment for each 30 day period thereafter until you cancel the Paid Service. If you do not enter your credit card or debit card details, your account will automatically be converted to the free personal plan after the free Trial period.

4. Representations and Warranties. You represent and warrant that (a) you are at least 18 years of age; (b) you have the full right, power and authority to enter into this agreement; (c) by entering into this agreement you are not breaching any duty or obligation to any third party; (d) the person executing the agreement is your duly authorized representative and authorized to bind you to the terms herein; (e) your use of the Service will comply with applicable law and will not infringe any intellectual property, contract or tort right of any third party or post any material that is abusive, obscene, defamatory, harassing, grossly offensive, vulgar, threatening, misleading, false or malicious and which may reflect poorly on or tarnishes the reputation or goodwill of Projecturf; (f) your materials posted to the website do not contain any software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software, hardware or telecommunications equipment; and (g) you will not engage in, or cause others to engage in, spamming or improper malicious, fraudulent, automated inquiries, conversions or other actions.
