1. Introduction & Legal Agreement
Important: Chime.me is built by the friendly folks at Appsurdity, Inc., so when you receive a charge on your credit card for your chime.me subscription please note that this will be from Appsurdity, Inc.
2. Member Account and Member Website
If anyone other than yourself accesses your Member Account, and/or any of your Member Account settings, and/or your Member website ("Member Website") they may perform any actions available to you, make changes to your Member Account, Member Account settings, or Member Website and accept any legal terms available therein, make various representations and warranties and more â and all such activities will be deemed to have occurred on your behalf and in your name.
Therefore, we strongly encourage you to keep the log-in credentials of your Member Account confidential, and allow such access only to people you trust - as you will be solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Member Account (including for any representations, warranties and undertakings made therein), whether or not specifically authorized by you, and for any damages, expenses or losses that may result from such activities.
You must provide accurate and complete information when registering your Member Account and using the Services, to which you are the sole and exclusive rightsholder. We strongly encourage you to provide your own (or your company's) contact and billing details, including your valid e-mail address, as we may use it to identify and determine the actual and true owner of the Member Account and/or Member Content (as defined below) submitted to us.
We reserve the right to determine and/or grant ownership to a Member Account based on our reasonable judgment, whether or not an independent investigation has been conducted by us. However, if we cannot make such determination (as we may deem in our sole discretion), we reserve the right to avoid doing so, without liability to you or to any other party. Among others, we may consider the principles set forth below.
Please carefully review these principles and consider adapting your practices accordingly, to ensure that what you believe to be "your" Member Account and/or Member Website remains as such:
- The owner of a Member Account, Member Website and/or Member Content created and/or uploaded to the Services, may be considered to be the person or entity who has access to the e-mail address then listed in our records for such Member Account under which such Member Website or Member Content has been created.
- If any Paid Services (as defined below) were procured via the Member Account, the owner of such Member Account, or any Member Website and/or Member Content created thereunder, may be considered to be the person or entity whose billing details were used to purchase such Paid Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Member Website was connected to an external domain name (either imported or purchased as part of certain Paid Services, as defined below), and such domain's registration information is publicly available via the WHOIS database provided on the www.whois.net website, the owner of such Member Website may be determined to be the person or entity registered as the owner of such domain thereunder. In the event that both an individual and an organization are registered as the owner of such domain, we will consider the organization as the actual owner of the domain, and therefore as the owner of the Member Website connected to such domain.
- you are at least eighteen (18) years of age, or of the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, and possess the legal authority, right and freedom to enter into this Agreement and to form a binding agreement, for yourself or on behalf of the person or entity committed by you to the Agreement;
- you are not a resident of (or will use the Services in) a country that the U.S. government has embargoed for use of the Services, nor are you named on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or any other applicable trade sanctioning regulations;
- your country of residence and/or your company's country of incorporation is the same as the country specified in the contact and/or billing address you provide us;
- you understand that we do not provide any legal advice or any recommendation with respect to any laws or requirements applicable to your use or any of your end users, or your compliance therewith;
And specifically regarding your Member Content:
- you own all rights in and to any content uploaded by you ("Member Content"), including any designs, images, animations, videos, audio files, fonts, logos, illustrations, compositions, artworks, interfaces, text, literary works and any other materials ("Content"), or otherwise have (and will continue to have) the full power, title, licenses, consents and authority, in and to the Member Content, as necessary to legally use, publish, transfer or license any and all rights and interests in and to such Member Content;
- the Member Content is (and will continue to be) true, current, accurate, non-infringing upon any third party rights, and in no way unlawful for you to possess, post, transmit or display in the country in which you or your Member Website's visitors and users reside, or for us and/or your visitors and users to use or possess in connection with the Services;

Further, you acknowledge and agree that we, in our sole discretion, shall determine the means, manner, and method for performing the Services, including those regarding the hosting, transmission, publication and/or display of any Member Websites and/or Content (including the inclusion and presentation of any advertisements or other commercial content with respect thereto).
In addition, you undertake and agree NOT to:
You acknowledge and agree that your failure to abide by any of the foregoing or any misrepresentation made by you herein may result in the immediate termination of your Member Account and/or any Services provided to you â with or without further notice to you, and without any refund of amounts paid on account of any such Services.
5. Content and Ownership
As between us and you, you shall own all intellectual property pertaining to your Member Content, including to any designs, images, animations, videos, audio files, fonts, logos, illustrations, compositions, artworks, interfaces, text, literary works and any other materials created by you. You hereby grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable and sublicensable right and license to use your Member Content (in whole or in part) worldwide in order to provide you with the Services, and as further specified under this Agreement.
All rights, title and interest in and to the Services, including any and all copyrightable materials or any other content thereof which is or may be subject to any intellectual property rights under any applicable law (including any artwork, graphics, images, website templates and widgets, literary work, source and object code, computer code (including html), applications, audio, music, video and other media, designs, animations, interfaces, the "look and feel" of the Services, methods, products, algorithms, data, interactive features and objects, advertising and acquisition tools and methods, inventions, trade secrets, logos, domains, customized URLs, trademarks, service marks, trade names and other proprietary identifiers, whether or not registered and/or capable of being registered (collectively, "Intellectual Property"), and any derivations thereof, are owned by and/or licensed to us.
Subject to your full compliance with this Agreement and timely payment of all applicable Fees, we hereby grant you, upon creating your Member Account and for as long as we wish to provide you with the Services, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, fully revocable, limited license to use the Services and Licensed Content, for the purpose of accessing and using the Services and generating and displaying your Member Website, solely as expressly permitted under the terms of this Agreement, and solely within the Services.
The terms of the Agreement do not convey any right or interest in or to our Intellectual Property (or any part thereof), except only for the limited license expressly granted above. Nothing in the Agreement constitutes an assignment or waiver of our Intellectual Property rights under any law.
6. Suggestions, Comments and Feedback
If you provide us with any suggestions, comments or other feedback relating to the Services (whether existing, suggested or contemplated), which is or may be subject to any Intellectual Property rights ("Feedback"), such Feedback shall be exclusively owned by us. By providing such Feedback to us, you (1) represent and warrant that such Feedback is accurate, complete, and does not infringe on any third party rights; (2) irrevocably assign to us any right, title and interest you may have in such Feedback, (3) explicitly and irrevocably waive any and all claims relating to any past, present or future moral rights, artists' rights, or any other similar rights worldwide in or to such Feedback.
8. Paid Services and Fees
The use of certain Services may be subject to payment of particular fees, as determined by us in our sole discretion ("Paid Services" and "Fee(s)", respectively). We will provide notice of such Fees then in effect in relation to such Paid Services. If you wish to receive or use such Paid Services, you are required to pay all applicable Fees in advance.
We reserve the right to change our Fees at any time, upon notice to you if such change may affect your existing subscriptions. If you received a discount or other promotional offer, we shall have the right to automatically and without notice renew your subscription to such Service(s) at the full applicable Fee.
All Fees shall be deemed to be in U.S. Dollars, except as specifically stated otherwise in writing by us. To the extent permitted by law (and unless specified otherwise by us in writing), all Fees are exclusive of all taxes (including value added tax, sales tax, goods and services tax, etc.), levies or duties imposed by taxing authorities ("Taxes"), and you shall be responsible for payment of all applicable Taxes relating to your use of the Services, or to any payments or purchases made by you. If we are obligated to collect or pay Taxes for the Fees payable by you, and whether or not such Taxes were added and collected from you for previous transactions, such Taxes may be added to the payment of any outstanding Fees and will be reflected in the Invoice for such transaction.
As part of registering or submitting information to receive Paid Services, you also authorize us (either directly or through our affiliates, subsidiaries or other third parties) to request and collect payment (or otherwise charge, refund or take any other billing actions) from our payment provider or your designated banking account, and to make any inquiries we or our subsidiaries or affiliates may consider necessary to validate your designated payment account or financial information, in order to ensure prompt payment, including for the purpose of receiving updated payment details from your payment, credit card or banking account provider (e.g., updated expiry date or card number as may be provided to us by your credit card company). As noted above, chime.me is built by Appsurdity, Inc., so when you receive a charge on your credit card for your chime.me subscription, it will show as Appsurdity, Inc.
We and/or our subsidiary or affiliated companies will issue an invoice or credit memo for any payment of Fees or refund made to or by us ("Invoice"). Each Invoice will be issued in electronic form and based on the country stated in your billing address, and will be made available to you via your Member Account and/or by e-mail. For the purpose of issuing the Invoice, you may be required to furnish certain personal information in order to comply with local laws. Please note that the Invoice presented in your Member Account may be inadequate with your local law requirements, and in such case may be used for pro forma purposes only.
In order to ensure that you do not experience any interruption or loss of services due to the lapse of any particular subscription period, the Services operate with automatic renewal, on a recurring-fees basis (except where explicitly stated otherwise by us in writing). Accordingly, where applicable, we will attempt to automatically renew the applicable Service(s) for a renewal period equal in time to the original subscription period for such Service, and automatically charge you the applicable Fees using the payment method you have on file with us. All Chime CRM plans have a minimum 6-month contract term. At the end of each term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for subsequent six (6) months unless terminated by either party in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the then-current term.
For example, if the original subscription period for a Service is one month, each of the renewal periods (where applicable) will be for one month. Therefore, unless you cancel the applicable Service(s), we will automatically renew such Service when it comes up for renewal, and charge you the applicable recurring Fees. In order to avoid any interruptions or loss of services due to failure to process renewal charges prior to the expiration of the subscription period then in effect, we reserve our right (but shall not be obligated) to charge for the upcoming renewal period up to two (2) weeks before such renewal period actually commences. In the event of failure to collect the Fees owed by you, we may in our sole discretion (but shall not be obligated to) retry to collect on a later time, and/or suspend or cancel your Member Account, without further notice.
For information about cancelling your Paid Services, please see below.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, you are and shall be solely responsible to verify and ensure the successful renewal of the Services you use (whether or not such Services are subject to automatic subscription renewals). Accordingly, you shall be solely responsible with respect to any discontinuation of any Services previously purchased by you, including due to a cancellation, failure to charge the applicable recurring Fees, or due to any Services not being subject to automatic subscription renewals. You acknowledge and agree that you shall not have any claims against us in relation to the discontinuation of any Services or Third Party Services, for whatever reason.
If you are not satisfied with any Services subject to a Fee for a monthly or annual service or subscription commitment of one month or year, you may provide notice of cancellation for any reason within fourteen (14) days of having first ordered or activated such Services ("Refund Period"). If you reside in a jurisdiction which requires a longer Refund Period, we will of course be happy to accommodate such requirements in accordance with all applicable laws. If we receive such notice within such Refund Period, we will refund to you the amount you actually paid for such Services, and cancel them accordingly. After the Refund Period, the Fees paid by you are non-refundable and non-cancellable. In addition, if we find that a notice of cancellation has been given in bad faith or in an illegitimate attempt to avoid payment for services actually received and enjoyed, we reserve our right to still charge the Member who provided such notice for any Services actually received, as permitted by law.
Please note: Certain services purchased on or through the Services may be non-refundable. These include Third Party Services such as domains, business tools and applications. The terms of each purchased service or application are indicated on the applicable Site and/or as part of or during the process of purchasing such services or applications. It is your obligation to verify your ability to cancel a service prior to purchasing it. We will not refund any amounts paid for non-refundable Paid Services, applications or Third Party Services.
If, at any time, you contact your bank or credit card company and decline, chargeback or otherwise reject the charge of any payable Fees ("Chargeback"), this act will be considered a breach of your payment obligations hereunder, and your use of the Services may be automatically terminated.
In the event a Chargeback is performed, your Member Account may be blocked without the option to re-purchase or re-use it, and any data contained in such Member Account, including any domains, applications and Third Party Services may be subject to cancellation and Capacity Loss (as defined in below).
Your use of the Services will not resume until you re-subscribe for any such Services, and pay any applicable Fees in full, including any fees and expenses incurred by us and/or any Third Party Services for each Chargeback received (including Fees for Services provided prior to the Chargeback, handling and processing charges and fees incurred by the payment processor).
If you have any questions or concerns regarding a payment made to us, we encourage you to first contact our Customer Support team firstname.lastname@example.org before filing a Chargeback or reversal of payment, in order to prevent the Services from being cancelled and your Member Account being blocked, and to avoid the filing of an unwarranted or erroneous Chargeback, which may result in your being liable for its applicable Fees, in addition to re-payment of all the Fees applicable to the Services purchased (and charged-back) by you.
We reserve our right to dispute any Chargeback received, including by providing the relevant credit card company or financial institution with any information and documentation proving that the Member responsible for such Chargeback did in fact authorize the transaction and make use of the services rendered thereafter.
You may discontinue to use and request to cancel your Member Account and/or any Services at any time, in accordance with the instructions available on the applicable Site(s), subject to a cancellation charge equal to one month's fee for the applicable Service. The effective date and time for such cancellation shall be the date and time on which you have completed the cancellation process on the applicable Site(s).
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, with respect to automatically-renewed subscriptions to Paid Services, such subscription will be discontinued only upon the expiration of the respective period for which you have already made payment. Please note that as the cancellation process may take a few days, in order to avoid the next automatic renewal and respective charge the cancellation request should be made at least fourteen (14) days prior to the expiration of the then-current service period.
Failure to comply with any of the terms set forth under this Agreement and/or to pay any due Fee shall entitle us to suspend (until full payment is made) or cancel your Member Account and Member Website (or certain features thereof), as well as the provision of any related Services (e.g., Paid Services) or Third Party Services to you.
11. Loss of Data, Content and Capacity Upon Cancellation
If your Member Account or any Services or Third Party Services related to your Member Account are cancelled (whether at your request or at our discretion), it may cause or result in the loss of certain content, features, or capacity of your Member Account, including any Member Content, visitor or user data or other usage data retained therein, and including any domain name reservation or registration that was included in such Services ("Capacity Loss"). We shall not be liable in any way for such Capacity Loss, or for saving a backup of your Member Account, Member Content or visitor or user data. Please also note that additional Fees may apply to re-activation of a Member Account and/or any Services following their cancellation, as determined by us in our sole discretion.
12. Third Party Services
The Services may enable you to engage and procure certain third party services and tools for enhancing your Member Website and your overall user experience, including domain registrars from which you may purchase a domain name for your Member Website, third party applications and widgets offered via the Site(s), third party Licensed Content, media distribution services, third party designers who may assist you with your Member Website, etc. (collectively, "Third Party Services").
You acknowledge and agree that regardless of the manner in which such Third Party Services may be offered to you (bundled with certain Services, offered separately by us or persons certified or authorized by us, or otherwise offered anywhere on the Services), we merely act as an intermediary platform between you and such Third Party Services, and do not in any way endorse any such Third Party Services, or shall be in any way responsible or liable with respect thereto. We will not be a party to, or in any way be responsible for monitoring, any interaction or transaction between you and any Third party Services.
Any and all use of such Third Party Services shall be done solely at your own risk and responsibility, and may be subject to such legal terms which govern such Third Party Services, which you are encouraged to review before engaging with them.
While we hope to avoid such instances, we may, at any time and at our sole discretion, suspend, disable access to or remove from your Member Account, Member Website(s) and/or the Services, any Third Party Services â whether or not incorporated with or made part of your Member Account and/or Member Website(s) at such time â without any liability to you or to any of your visitors or users.
13. Copyrights and DMCA
We respect the intellectual property rights of others. We act in accordance with our interpretation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). If you believe that your work has been copied or was otherwise used in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may notify us of such infringement by providing the following information in writing to our designated Copyright Agent: (1) the contact details of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright; (2) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (3) a description of the material that you claim to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information sufficient to permit us to locate the material (including URL address); (4) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (5) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of a copyright that is allegedly infringed.

In such case, you may file a proper counter-notice in accordance with Section 512 of the DMCA, in which you must include: (1) your full name, address, phone number and physical or electronic signature; (2) identification of the material and its location before removal; (3) a statement under penalty of perjury that the material was removed by mistake or misidentification; (4) your consent to an appropriate judicial body; and (5) any other information required under the relevant provisions of the DMCA.

We reserve the right to notify the person or entity providing the infringement notice of such counter-notice and provide any details included therein.
When using the Services, you may be exposed to Member Websites, Member Content or Third Party Services from a variety of sources, which may be inaccurate, objectionable or illegal.

You agree that your report shall not impose any responsibility or liability upon us, and that we may consider such report and act upon it, refrain from taking any such action or require additional information or documents before doing so, at our sole discretion.

The information we collect in this manner includes IP address, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, information on actions taken on our site, and dates and times of website visits. A "cookie" is a text file that websites send to a visitor's computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor's browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A "web beacon", also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. Through these automated collection methods, we obtain "clickstream data", which is a log of content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website. As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. We may link certain data elements we have collected through automated means, such as your browser information, with other information we have obtained about you to let us know, for example, whether you have opened an e-mail we sent to you. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our Sites. See also our "Do Not Track Policy" below.
