Short version: We use these basic terms throughout the agreement, and they have specific meanings. You should know what we mean when we use each of the terms.
Short version: User Accounts and Organizations have different administrative controls; a human must create your Account; you must be 13 or over; you must provide a valid email address; and you may not have more than one free Account. You alone are responsible for your Account and anything that happens while you are signed in to or using your Account. You are responsible for keeping your Account secure.
You must provide a valid email address in order to complete the signup process. Any other information requested, such as your real name, is not required to be valid, unless you are accepting these terms on behalf of a legal entity (in which case we may need more information about the legal entity) or if you opt for a paid Account, in which case additional information will be necessary for billing purposes.
We have a few simple rules for User Accounts on Tree Schema's Service.
You are responsible for keeping your Account secure while you use our Service.
In some situations, third parties' terms may apply to your use of Tree Schema. For example, Tree Schema may offer Single Sign On through a third party provider (e.g. Google, Microsoft). Please be aware that while these Terms are our full agreement with you, other parties' terms govern their relationships with you. It is the User’s responsibility to comply with these third party terms.
Short version: You own content you create, but you allow us certain rights to it, so that we can display and share the content you create. We treat the content you create as confidential. You can only create content that you legally have the right to access. You still have control over your content, and responsibility for it, and the rights you grant us are limited to those we need to provide the service. We have the right to remove content or close Accounts if we need to.
You may create or upload User-Generated Content while using the Service. You are solely responsible to ensure that you have the legal right to use all User-Generated Content that you post, upload, link to or otherwise make available via the Service, regardless of the form of that Content. We are not responsible for User-Generated Content that is uploaded without legal authority.
Tree Schema considers the contents of your Organization to be confidential to you. Tree Schema will protect the contents of Organization from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that we would use to protect our own confidential information of a similar nature and in no event with less than a reasonable degree of care.
We have the right to refuse or remove any User-Generated Content that, in our sole discretion, violates any laws or Tree Schema terms or policies.
You retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content. If you're posting anything you did not create yourself or do not own the rights to, you agree that you are responsible for any Content you post; that you will only submit Content that you have the right to post; and that you will fully comply with any third party licenses relating to Content you post.
Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us — and other Tree Schema Users within your Organization — certain legal permissions, listed in Section C.5. These license grants apply to Your Content.
We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content, publish it, and share it within your Organization. You grant us and our legal successors the right to store, archive, parse, and display Your Content, and make incidental copies, as necessary to provide the Service, including improving the Service over time. This license includes the right to do things like copy it to our database and make backups (for example, for disaster recovery); show it to you and other users; parse it into a search index or otherwise analyze it on our servers in a manner required to provide the service, and share it with other users within your Organization.
This license does not grant Tree Schema the right to sell Your Content. It also does not grant Tree Schema the right to otherwise distribute or use Your Content outside of our provision of the Service.
Short version: We own the service and all of our content. In order for you to use our content, we give you certain rights to it, but you may only use our content in the way we have allowed.
Short version: You agree to these Terms of Service when using any of Tree Schema's APIs (Application Provider Interface), including use of the API through a third party product that accesses Tree Schema.
All use of the Tree Schema API is subject to these Terms of Service and the Tree Schema Privacy Statement.
Tree Schema allows paid accounts to create users that can be shared for the sole purpose of programatic access. This is limited to using the API key in a manner that allows the Users to test and deploy API integrations with Tree Schema.
You may not share API tokens to exceed Tree Schema's rate limitations.
Abuse or excessively frequent requests to Tree Schema via the API may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your Account's access to the API. Tree Schema, in our sole discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of the API. We will make a reasonable attempt to warn you via email prior to suspension.
Tree Schema may offer subscription-based access to our API for those Users who require high-throughput access.
Short version: You are responsible for any fees associated with your use of Tree Schema. We are responsible for communicating those fees to you clearly and accurately, and letting you know well in advance if those prices change.
Our pricing and payment terms are available at treeschema.com/pricing. If you agree to a subscription price, that will remain your price for the duration of the payment term; however, prices are subject to change at the end of a payment term.
Payment Based on Plan For monthly or yearly payment plans, the Service is billed in advance on a monthly or yearly basis respectively and is non-refundable after the first 30 days of service. Users may request a full refund within the first 30 days of the first payment. Tree Schema will close the Account within 7 days of the refund request. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open Account.
Invoicing for invoiced Users, User agrees to pay the fees in full, up front without deduction or setoff of any kind, in U.S. Dollars. User must pay the fees within thirty (30) days of the Tree Schema invoice date. Amounts payable under this Agreement are non-refundable. If User fails to pay any fees on time, Tree Schema reserves the right, in addition to taking any other action at law or equity, to (i) charge interest on past due amounts at 1.0% per month or the highest interest rate allowed by law, whichever is less, and to charge all expenses of recovery, and (ii) terminate the applicable order form. User is solely responsible for all taxes, fees, duties and governmental assessments (except for taxes based on Tree Schema's net income) that are imposed or become due in connection with this Agreement.
By agreeing to these Terms, you are giving us permission to charge your on-file credit card, PayPal account, or other approved methods of payment for fees that you authorize for Tree Schema.
You are responsible for all fees, including taxes, associated with your use of the Service. By using the Service, you agree to pay Tree Schema any charge incurred in connection with your use of the Service. If you dispute the matter, contact Tree Schema Support. You are responsible for providing us with a valid means of payment for paid Accounts. Free Accounts are not required to provide payment information.
Short version: You may close your Account at any time. If you do, we'll treat your information responsibly.
It is your responsibility to properly cancel your Account with Tree Schema. An Owner can cancel an Organization’s Account by emailing Tree Schema at email@example.com.
We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, but barring legal requirements, we will delete your full profile and the Content of your Organization within 90 days of cancellation or termination. This information can not be recovered once your Account is cancelled and the Content has been removed from Tree Schema.
Upon request, we will make a reasonable effort to provide an Account owner with a copy of your lawful, non-infringing Account contents after Account cancellation or termination. You must make this request within 90 days of cancellation or termination
Tree Schema has the right to suspend or terminate your access to all or any part of the Website at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. Tree Schema reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
All provisions of this Agreement which, by their nature, should survive termination will survive termination.
Short version: We use email and other electronic means to stay in touch with our users.
For contractual purposes, you (1) consent to receive communications from us in an electronic form via the email address you have submitted or via the Service; and (2) agree that all Terms of Service, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that those communications would satisfy if they were on paper. This section does not affect your non-waivable rights.
Communications made through email or Tree Schema Support's messaging system will not constitute legal notice to Tree Schema or any of its officers, employees, agents or representatives in any situation where notice to Tree Schema is required by contract or any law or regulation. Legal notice to Tree Schema must be in writing and served to Tree Schema’s legal agent:
Tree Schema, LLC.
700 N Randolph St, #311
Arlington, Va 22203
Short version: You are responsible for your use of the service. If you harm someone else or get into a dispute with someone else, we will not be involved.
If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you agree to release Tree Schema from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
You agree to indemnify us, defend us, and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of your use of the Website and the Service, including but not limited to your violation of this Agreement, provided that Tree Schema (1) promptly gives you written notice of the claim, demand, suit or proceeding; (2) gives you sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim, demand, suit or proceeding (provided that you may not settle any claim, demand, suit or proceeding unless the settlement unconditionally releases Tree Schema of all liability); and (3) provides to you all reasonable assistance, at your expense.
Short version: We want our users to be informed of important changes to our terms, but some changes aren't that important — we don't want to bother you every time we fix a typo. So while we may modify this agreement at any time, we will notify users of any material changes and give you time to adjust to them.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to amend these Terms of Service at any time and will update these Terms of Service in the event of any such amendments. We will notify our Users of material changes to this Agreement, such as price increases, at least 30 days prior to the change taking effect by posting a notice on our Website or sending email to the primary email address specified in your Tree Schema account. Customer's continued use of the Service after those 30 days constitutes agreement to those revisions of this Agreement. For any other modifications, your continued use of the Website constitutes agreement to our revisions of these Terms of Service.
We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Website (or any part of it) with or without notice.
Except to the extent applicable law provides otherwise, this Agreement between you and Tree Schema and any access to or use of the Website or the Service are governed by the federal laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Virginia, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You and Tree Schema agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in the County of Arlington, Virginia.
