Effective August 1st, 2021
ACCEPTANCE OF OUR TERMS
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) constitute a binding contract between you and Vista Social, LLC. (“us” or “we” or “Vista Social”) governing the use of and access to the products we offer in connection with a paid or trial subscription (“Products”) to you and any authorized individuals engaged by you to use the Products on your behalf (each, a “User,” and collectively, “Users”). By using or accessing the Products, or authorizing or permitting any User to use or access the Products, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms.
If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company, organization, or other legal entity (“Entity”), you agree to these Terms for that Entity and represent to Vista Social that you have the authority to bind such Entity and its affiliates to these Terms. In such case, “you” or “Customer” shall refer to such Entity and its affiliates. If you are a Customer’s User, then these Terms will apply to you to the extent they are applicable to Users. If Customer is an agency, then a User may also be an agency client as described in Section 10 (Agencies). If you do not have the authority to bind the Entity to these Terms or do not agree to these Terms, do not accept these Terms or use or access the Products.
You represent and warrant that the information you provide in registering for the Products is accurate, complete, and rightfully yours to use.
We deliver our Products through our web applications and mobile applications (each, an “Application,” and collectively, “Applications”). The features and services available to you will be based on your subscription plan (“Plan”). If you signed a service order, the details of your Plan will be provided on your service order. If you purchased a Product within the Application, the details of your Plan will be set forth on the “Billing” page within the Application. The Products specifically exclude any third-party database or Third-Party Services.
We reserve the right to modify features and functionality of our Products from time to time in our sole discretion. We will determine in our sole discretion whether any new features require additional fees. We may decide to add new features to the Products and make them generally available at no cost to Customers. We may or may not provide notice to you of changes to the Products. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modifications, price increases, or discontinuations of our Products.
You agree that you will only access our Applications for your internal business purposes and subject to these Terms. After any free trial of our Products, you will be required to register for our Application and pay a subscription fee for the use of our Products. You must pay such subscription fees on the first day of your subscription term unless otherwise specified on your service order.
If you, as a Customer, add Users to your account, you must bind each of the Users to these Terms. You are responsible for all information, data, content, messages or other materials that you or your Users post or otherwise transmit via the Applications (collectively, “Content”). You acknowledge and agree that a login may only be used by one (1) person, and that you will not share a single login among multiple people. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login and account, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under or in connection with your login or account. You agree that you will not trade, transfer, or sell access to your login or account to another party unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Vista Social.
As a User, you represent and warrant that you are: (i) 18 years or older, (ii) not prohibited or restricted from having a Vista Social account, and (iii) not a competitor of or using the Products for purposes that are competitive with Vista Social.
You agree to use reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized use of the Products and notify us immediately if you discover any unauthorized use through your account. You will take all necessary steps to terminate the unauthorized use and agree to cooperate with us in preventing or terminating such unauthorized use of the Products.
AVAILABILITY OF SERVICE
While we will use commercially reasonable efforts to keep our Applications available and accessible, the Applications may be unavailable from time to time for repairs, upgrades, routine and emergency maintenance, or other interruptions that may be out of our reasonable control, including any outages of Third-Party Services or any related application programming interface (“APIs”) and integrations. Interruptions of our Applications shall not serve as a basis to terminate your subscription or demand any full or partial refunds or credits of prepaid and unused subscription fees.
CLEAR AND PROMINENT DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL CONNECTIONS WITH VISTA SOCIAL
You are required to follow the Federal Trade Commission’s Endorsement Guides. You must understand and agree that you are required to clearly and conspicuously disclose any material connection between you and Vista Social. Material connections include, but are not necessarily limited to, Vista Social providing you with something of value, such as free use of products or services. In general, disclosures should be:
OUR USE OF THIRD PARTY SERVICES
You will pay for your Plan in our Application.
Payment in Application
Monthly Plans. For monthly Plans, we will charge you on the first day of your subscription term and automatically on the same date of each subsequent month (“Monthly Pay Date”). We will continue to charge you for your Plan, including any Add-Ons, on a monthly basis unless you decide to cancel at any time by accessing the “Billing” page within the Application. If you cancel in the month preceding your Monthly Pay Date, you will not be issued any refunds or credits of prepaid and unused fees for the remainder of the subscription term and you will continue to have access to the Products until the following Monthly Pay Date.
Annual Plans. For annual Plans, we will charge you on the first day of your subscription term and automatically on the same date of each subsequent year (“Annual Pay Date”). We will continue to charge you for your Plan, including any Add-Ons, on an annual basis unless you decide to cancel prior to the Annual Pay Date by accessing the “Billing” page within the Application. If you cancel during the subscription term, you will not be issued any refunds or credits of any prepaid and unused fees for the remainder of the subscription term and you will continue to have access to the Products until the following Annual Pay Date.
Changes To Your Plan
If you choose to upgrade your Plan or add any Add-Ons to your Plan during your subscription term, you will be charged for the then-current price for the upgrade or Add-Ons prorated based on the number of days remaining in your subscription term. Unless otherwise specified on your service order, any upgrade or Add-Ons that you add will be coterminous with the existing Plan and automatically renew at the end of the subscription term along with your Plan. If you choose to downgrade your Plan or remove any Add-Ons from your Plan, you will not be issued any refunds or credits for the unused and prepaid fees in connection with the downgrade or removal. Downgrading your Plan may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account and we do not accept any liability for any such loss.
Credit Card and Paypal Authorization
By submitting your credit card or Paypal information to Vista Social, you authorize Vista Social to store this information with its third party service providers and to charge the credit card or Paypal account you have provided to us until your account is terminated. In addition, you authorize us to use a third-party payment processor in processing payments. If your credit card expires, or is declined or your Paypal information requires an update, we will provide you notice via email. If, for any reason, your payment cannot be completed through credit card or Paypal, we may suspend your account until we receive payment.
Disputes and Late Payments
You must notify us in writing of any amounts you wish to dispute prior to the date such amounts would otherwise be due. Any undisputed amount not paid when due shall be subject to a finance charge of 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, determined and compounded daily from the date due until the date paid. You will also be required to reimburse us for any costs or expenses (including any reasonable attorneys’ fees) we incur to collect past due amounts. Any amounts due under these Terms shall not be withheld or offset by you against amounts due to you for any reason.
Taxes. All payments you make are exclusive of federal, state, local, and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings, and similar assessments (including, without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes, and value-added taxes). You agree to be responsible for the payment of all such charges, excluding taxes based upon our net income. All amounts payable by you hereunder shall be grossed up for any withholding taxes imposed by any foreign government on your payment of amounts to Vista Social.
CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION
Termination by You
You may terminate your account at any time without cause, but you will not be entitled to any refunds of any prepaid and unused fees, and any unpaid fees under your Plan for the applicable subscription term will become immediately due and payable. You may terminate your account and receive a prorated refund of any prepaid and unused fees, if we fail to cure a material breach of these Terms within thirty (30) days of our receipt of written notice from you describing the breach. You may also cancel your account as provided in Section 6 (Payment).
Termination by Us
We may restrict functionality of the Products or temporarily suspend your account if we reasonably believe that you have violated these Terms. Unless we believe the need to restrict or suspend access is time-sensitive and requires immediate action without notice, or we are prohibited from providing notice under law or legal order, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you by email prior to such suspension. We will not be liable to you or any third parties for any of the foregoing actions. We may terminate your account and use of the Products for any of the following reasons: (i) you fail to comply with these Terms, (ii) you do not pay your fees in accordance with the payment terms under your Plan, (iii) at the expiration of the subscription period of your Plan if we provide prior written notice to you, (iv) you become the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or (v) if we determine you are acting or have acted in a way that negatively impacts or reflects on Vista Social or our current or prospective partners or customers. In no event will any termination by us for the foregoing reasons entitle you to any refunds of any prepaid and unused fees or relieve you of your obligation to pay any fees payable to us prior to the date of termination, and any unpaid fees under your Plan will become immediately due and payable. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, hateful, discriminatory or illegal activity may be grounds for immediate termination of your use of the Product and may be referred to law enforcement authorities.
