The Site is an Internet property of Synaptek Enterprises, Inc. and its affiliated companies (“Synaptek”, “us”, “it”, “our” and/or “we”). As used herein, the terms “you”, “your”, and/or “yourself” shall refer to you, a user of the Site, the Software (as defined below), and/or Services.
2. Use of Services.
Synaptek is providing you with certain Services through the Site provided that you are of legal age to form a binding contract in your applicable jurisdiction. In order to receive or access certain Services available through the Site, you may be required to provide current, accurate identification, contact, and other information as part of the registration process and/or your continued use of the Services. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user login information and account password, and you are responsible for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify Synaptek of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. Synaptek cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to provide us with accurate information or to keep your login information and/or password secure. When using the Services available through the Site, you agree to comply with your own local laws and regulations regarding online conduct and acceptable content, including laws regulating the export of data to and from your country of residence.
3. Service Availability.
Synaptek uses reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Services available through the Site are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. However, there will be occasions when the Services will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and emergency repairs or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond the control of Synaptek. Every reasonable step will be taken by us to minimize such disruption where it is within the reasonable control of Synaptek. You agree that Synaptek shall not be responsible or liable to you for the deletion or failure to store or make available any content and other communications maintained or transmitted through the Site, the Services, or any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site or Services. You acknowledge that Synaptek reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit your activity and restrict your use of the Services available through the Site or any other resources you may use. Synaptek also reserves the right to terminate, suspend, or limit certain features or functionality of your account based on usage that exceeds any limits established by us. You may elect to purchase other Services or resources that may be available and offered by Synaptek. Payments for such purchases are non-refundable. Upon the termination of your account, you may no longer be able to retrieve content or data contained in your account.
The user who creates an account on the Site is referred to here as the “Account Owner”. The Account Owner will have access and control over its Synaptek account and is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of its account and password. If the Account Owner wishes to share its username and password to allow others to gain access to its Synaptek Account, the Account Owner agrees that BY SHARING ITS USERNAME AND PASSWORD, THE ACCOUNT OWNER AGREES TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSURING THAT ANY USERS OF THE ACCOUNT COMPLY WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT THE ACCOUNT OWNER SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ITS ACCOUNT USERS.

You hereby grant to Synaptek, an unlimited, worldwide, non-exclusive, assignable, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable, royalty free, perpetual right and license to use and exploit any feedback, suggestions, enhancements, requests, recommendations, corrections or comments provided by you to us.
7. Subscription and Payment Terms.
7.1 We offer a free, thirty (30) day trial version of the Software. You can elect to cancel your initial free trial at any time, by accessing your account and following the necessary steps. In order to use the full functionalities of the Software, you will need to upgrade to a paid subscription. By selecting a subscription tier (as indicated on the Site), you agree to pay us the subscription fees indicated (e.g. monthly or annual). Setup costs on your part during registration are non-refundable.
7.2 By purchasing a monthly or annual subscription, you agree that Synaptek may submit monthly charges or annual charges for the then-applicable subscription fee without further authorization from you until you provide prior notice that you wish to terminate your subscription with at least seven (7) days before the end of the then-applicable subscription period, or you wish to change your payment method. Your continued use of the subscription reaffirms that Synaptek is authorized to bill you for the applicable monthly charges or annual charges. You acknowledge that the amount charged for the Services may vary from month to month (or year to year for annual subscriptions) for reasons that may include without limitation differing amounts due to promotional offers or upgrades/downgrades to different subscription fees offered by Synaptek, and you authorize us to charge your payment method for such varying amounts. We may change the monthly charges or annual charges in effect, or add new subscription fees from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email or via notification through your Services account. If you cancel your current subscription during the active period, you will be able to use the paid functionalities of the Services until the applicable period ends. You will not be billed again for any monthly charges or annual charges following the expiration of the then-current payment period, nor will you receive any refund as a result of your cancellation of your subscription. All outstanding invoices must be paid within seven (7) days. If your payment information is invalid (incorrect or out-dated), or you do not renew your subscription, we reserve the right to terminate or limit your access to the Software and/or Services.
7.3 Taxes. All monthly charges and annual charges are exclusive of all applicable taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties associated with your account. It is important that you keep complete and accurate contact details in order for us to remit invoices, especially payment processing account details.
8.1 We use worldwide accepted third-party payment processors to bill you through a payment account linked to your account with us. The processing of payments will be subject to the fees, terms, conditions and privacy policies of such payment processor. Synaptek is not responsible for any and all errors, fees and currency conversions fees by the payment processor, and you should review its terms and policies from time to time, which will govern the provision of services to you.
8.2 You must provide us with valid and current billing information for your purchase of any Software or Services subscriptions. Except as expressly set forth herein, all purchases are final and non-cancelable or non-refundable. Any failure or inability by us to process any payment hereunder does not relieve you from your payment obligations.
