Oxygen Feedback User Terms

Effective Date: October 21, 2019

Welcome to the Oxygen Feedback platform (the “Platform”), owned and operated by Syncro Soft SRL (“Syncro,” “we,” “us” or “our”). The platform is a modern online comment management platform that provides a simple and efficient way for a community to interact and offer feedback on a website content. These Terms of Service (“the "Agreement"”) constitute a binding contract between you, either an individual or an entity user (“you, "your”) and Syncro governing your use of the Platform.

BY ACCESSING OR USING THE PLATFORM, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, THEN YOU MUST NOT ACCESS OR USE THE PLATFORM. This Agreement is effective as of that date that you accept it. For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:

1. Definitions

Account” means the account setup for the purpose of accessing and using the Platform.

Publisher" is an organization or other third party, that has separately agreed to our Publisher Additional Terms.

Publisher Site(s)” means a website, URL, web page or software application, owned or operated by a Publisher on which the Platform is used to allow users to, among other things, send feedback and interact with the content of the Publisher Site.

"Your Feedback" means your content or information that you upload post to, or transmit, display, perform or distribute by means of the Platform to a Publisher Site.

2. Eligibility

This Platform is not for persons under the age of 16 or for any users previously suspended or removed from the Platform by Syncro. Furthermore, by using the Platform, you affirm that either you are at least 16 years of age or have been authorized to use the Platform by your parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age and entered into this Agreement on your behalf. If you are using the Platform on behalf of an entity, organization, or company, then you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that organization to this Agreement and you agree to be bound by this Agreement on behalf of that organization.

3. Your Account

In order to use the Platform, You must apply for an Account and provide true, accurate, current and complete information about Yourself as requested in the registration form. You may also be asked to choose a user name and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the security of Your user name and password and agree not to disclose such to any third party. You agree to notify Syncro immediately at sales@oxygenxml.com of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account.

You may also be able to register to use the Platform by logging into your Account with your credentials from certain third party social networking sites ("Third Party Services") (including, but not limited to Facebook, Google, etc). You confirm that you are the owner of any such Third Party Services account and that you are entitled to give us permission to access and use your data from your Third Party Services Account as permitted by the Third Party Services and as permitted herein to provide the Service, and to store your login credentials for such Third Party Services.

If you operate as an anonymous user and do not register and create an Account you will still be bound by this Agreement by virtue of your use and the reasonable implication that such use of the Platform would require acceptance of reasonable terms of use such as these. The content of your anonymous posts is shared with the public but the identity of the user who submitted the post is kept hidden from the public. However, this author identity information (IP address) is made known to the moderators for the purpose of preventing abuse of the anonymous post feature. This feature should not be used in situations where anonymity is not necessary. In addition, it must not be used to post anything which violates our usual posting guidelines.

To access most features of the Service pertaining to organizations, you must apply for an Account on behalf of your Publisher (“Publisher Account”). See Publisher Additional Terms.

4. Proprietary Rights and Licenses

Force Majeure. Except for any payment obligations, neither party will be liable for failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement to the extent such failure is caused by a force majeure event (including acts of God, natural disasters, war, civil disturbance, action by governmental entity, strike and other causes beyond the party’s reasonable control).

Dispute Resolution, Governing law. The parties will use reasonable efforts to resolve any dispute between them in good faith prior to initiating legal action.

Waiver. The waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of this Agreement does not waive any other breach. The failure of any party to insist on strict performance of any covenant or obligation in accordance with this Agreement will not be a waiver of such party’s right to demand strict compliance in the future, nor will the same be construed as a novation of this Agreement.

Assignability. Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the other party’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld); provided, however, either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety, without the other party’s consent in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.

Severability. If any part of this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the remaining portions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. If any material limitation or restriction on the grant of any license to you under this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the license will immediately terminate.

Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. We hereby reject any additional or conflicting terms appearing in a purchase order or any other ordering materials submitted by You and conditions assent solely based on the terms and conditions of this Agreement as offered by Us.
