Terms of Service
Last Updated: May 10, 2018
The following document outlines the Terms of Service (“Terms”) of the Spirit website and services. Please read these Terms fully and carefully.
Before using any of the Spirit services, you are required to read, understand, and agree to these Terms. We may update the Terms at any time and without prior notice by posting a new version at https://spiritapp.io/terms. The information on this site and your use of it is subject to the most recent version of the Terms posted. If you continue to use the Services, you are indicating that you agree to the updated Terms.
Description of Service
For the applicable fee set out in our Spirit policies, we offer a software service (the “Service”), which – basically – consists of a desktop application called Spirit Studio that allows you to interact with web pages and provides sophisticated tools to create and manage animations on a web page.
In order to use the Service, you must create an account (“Account”) via Spirit Studio and become a registered user (“User”). You have to provide us with accurate and complete information and keep it up-to-date. You’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account and you’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
If you are a User, Spirit provides you (subject to your compliance with the Terms), access to its proprietary tools. The animation data created with Spirit Studio can be hosted on your server and/or embedded on your own website and/or mobile app via an open source library.
Our Terms cover the use of our Service, and are applicable to all its users. When we say, “Spirit”, ”we," "our," or "us," we’re referring to Inlet, registered with the Dutch Trade Register with number 17218353, our employees, directors, officers, affiliates, and subsidiaries. When we say, "you" or "your," we’re referring to you, your team, company or persons that have registered with us to use Spirit.
If you don’t agree to these Terms, do not use the Services. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.
Privacy and Security
We have taken technical precautions to keep your information safe. All information transferred between you and us, or between you and other users, is shared with us only on a strictly need to know basis only (e.g. to help you retrieve access to your account), and is treated with strict confidentiality.
You are solely responsible for your conduct and your data related to the Service. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Us and its suppliers from any and all loss, cost, liability, and expense arising from or related to your data, your use of the Service, or your violation of these terms.
The Software and Service are made available to you, your company, and/or your customers only for personal or commercial use, which use must be in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations and must not infringe or violate third party rights. Any unauthorized use of any Spirit Service is a violation of this Agreement and certain federal and state laws. Such violations may subject the unauthorized user and his or her agents to civil and criminal penalties.
We reserves the right to terminate any account that it finds in violation of its Terms of Service by receiving abuse complaints higher than allowed, without refund.
