You acknowledge and agree that we will process, handle and use (by ourselves or using trusted third party service providers such as cloud service providers) Your Data, Feedback and the Crowdsourced Data as follows:
We will use Your Data, the Crowdsourced Data and the Feedback to provide the Service to you, conduct administrative and technical activities necessary to maintain and provide the Service and to improve and customize the Service;
We will use Your Data, the Crowdsourced Data and the Feedback to bill and collect Fees, enforce these Terms and take any action in any case of dispute, or legal proceeding of any kind involving you with respect to the Service;
We will use Your Data, the Crowdsourced Data and the Feedback to prevent fraud, misappropriation, infringements, and other illegal activities and misuse of the Service;
We may use and share the Feedback and Crowdsourced Data in order to provide the Service to you and other customers, to enhance the Service, to develop new products and services, for research and testing and for any other purpose we determine. You will not be entitled to any remuneration from us, for our use of such Feedback and Crowdsourced Data; and
If we are required, or reasonably believe we are required, by law, to share or disclose Your Data, or if such sharing or disclosure is required pursuant to a subpoena, order, or decree, issued by a competent judicial or administrative authority, provided that, to the extent legally permitted, we will endeavor to give you prompt notice of the requirement prior to such disclosure, to allow you, at your cost and expense, to intervene and protect its interests in Your Data.
Subject to the foregoing, we will take precautions to maintain the confidentiality of Your Data, in a manner no less protective than we use to protect our own similar assets, but in no event less than reasonable care. We will not use or disclose Your Data except as described above or otherwise subject to your express, prior, written permission. Our personnel, staff, advisors and consultants will access Your Data on a strict ‘need to know’ basis, subject to the terms herein.

In consideration of the provision of the Service to you, you will pay us, as of your registration to the Service, the subscription Fees, in accordance with the packages, schemes, amounts and subscription cycle presented to you upon registration.
Changes you make in your subscription package, scheme or amount will take effect in the subsequent subscription cycle.
All Fees are quoted in US Dollars, unless expressly stated otherwise. Fees are payable by wire transfer or major credit cards. We may, from time to time, and without specific notice to you, add additional payment methods to the then-current payment methods, or cease to use previously supported payment methods. By using one or more payment methods to pay the Fees, you represent and warrant that you are lawfully permitted to use the selected payment method in connection with the Service. We may require additional information from you before completing payment transactions.
You must keep the billing information you provided to us upon registration current, complete, and accurate, and notify us promptly in case of any change in your billing information.
We will charge you for the applicable subscription Fees at the beginning of each subscription cycle. By registering to the Service, you give your consent to purchasing a subscription to the Service, in accordance with the schemes, amounts and subscription cycle presented to you upon registration, and to being billed for the applicable Fees, in addition to any applicable taxes (such as sales tax, value added tax), and any surcharges or commissions charged by the payment processor or your selected payment method.
All your payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid in connection with the Service are non-refundable. If you terminate your account and subscription, you are not entitled to any refund (pro-rata or otherwise), for any Fees you have paid for the terminated subscription during that subscription cycle. You are responsible for paying all Fees applicable to your subscription to the Service, whether or not you actively used, accessed or otherwise benefited from the Service.
Payment methods are processed and handled through relevant third party payment processors. Payment methods are therefore subject not only to these Terms, but also the terms and conditions of these third parties pursuant to your contractual relations with them. You acknowledge that the third parties processing any of the payment methods may charge you commission on their end of the transaction. We are not responsible for such commission, which is strictly within your contractual relations with the relevant payment processor.
Fees that we are unable to charge through the payment method you provided is deemed an overdue Fee. Failure to settle any overdue Fee within twenty (20) calendar days of its original due date will constitute a material breach of these Terms. Without derogating from any other rights and remedies available to us under applicable law, overdue Fees will accrue interest at the rate of one percent (1%) per month or part thereof, cumulative monthly on the total amount due from the due date until the date of actual payment. You will reimburse us for all legal costs and attorney fees we incur in the course of collecting your overdue Fees.
We may modify, adapt, improve, or enhance the Service, or any of its features, user interface, design or any other aspect related to it, without being obligated to provide you notice thereof. If we enhance the Service to include new or additional features or capabilities, we reserve the right to amend these Terms or the applicable Fees, and obtain your consent to such amendments. If you do not agree to the amendments in their entirety, we reserve the right to terminate these Terms at the end of the subscription cycle pursuant to Section 9 below.
Except as relevant law may otherwise require to be permitted, you may not modify, make derivative works of, disassemble, de-compile or reverse engineer any part of the Service, or otherwise attempt to discover its underlying code, structure, implementation or algorithms.
You may not use the Service in order to develop, or create, or permit others to develop or create, a product or service similar or competitive to the Service.

YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICE FOR ANY ACTIVITY THAT CONSTITUTES, OR ENCOURAGES CONDUCT THAT WOULD CONSTITUTE, A CRIMINAL OFFENSE, GIVE RISE TO CIVIL LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE VIOLATE ANY APPLICABLE LAW.
WE MAY EMPLOY MEASURES TO DETECT AND PREVENT FRAUDULENT OR ABUSIVE USE OF THE SERVICE, AS WELL AS MISUSE OF THE SERVICE. WE MAY SUSPEND OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT ON AND ACCESS TO THE SERVICE, WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE, IF WE, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION, BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE ENGAGED IN FRAUDULENT OR ABUSIVE USE, OR MISUSE, OF THE SERVICE.
Term and Termination
These Terms commence when you apply to register to the Service, and terminate upon the termination, cancellation or expiration of your subscription to the Service.
Upon the end of each subscription cycle, your subscription will terminate unless it is renewed by mutual agreement. If not otherwise renewed, your account and subscription will be terminated upon the end of that subscription cycle.
In addition to the foregoing, either party may terminate these Terms:

No waiver. Neither party will, by mere lapse of time, without giving express notice thereof, be deemed to have waived any breach, by the other party, of any terms or provisions of these Terms.
