Aegis Accounting Terms of Service

Last Updated: March 26th 2018

Welcome to the Aegis Accounting Ltd. (“Aegis Accounting”) website located at http://aegisaccounting.co.uk/ (the “Site”). Please read these Terms of Service (these “Terms”) and the Privacy Policy located at http://aegisaccounting.co.uk/privacy-policy/ (the “Privacy Policy”) carefully because these Terms govern the use of the Site and the chatbot and any other services accessible via the Site, any Aegis Accounting mobile applications, desktop applications or third party service integrations (collectively, the “Apps”). To make these Terms easier to read, the Site, the chatbot, and the services made available through the Site, and the Apps are collectively called the “Services”.

1. Agreement to Terms

By using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, do not use the Services. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.

2. Privacy Policy

Please refer to the Privacy Policy for information on how we collect, use and disclose information from our users. You acknowledge and agree that your use of the Services is subject to the Privacy Policy.

3. Changes to Terms or Services

We may modify these Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site, through the Services, or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site or through the Services, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore. Because the Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.

4. The Services

a. Eligibility

You may use the Services only if you are 13 years or older, capable of forming a binding contract with Aegis Accounting, and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.

b. Registration and Your Information

If you want to use certain features of the Services you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). You can do this via the Services or through your account with certain third-party services such as Google and Facebook (each, an “SNS Account”). If you choose the SNS Account option we’ll create your Account by extracting from your SNS Account certain personal information such as your name and email address and other personal information that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to access.

It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.

5. Electronic Communications

When you use the Services, or send e-mails, text messages, and other communications through the Services to us, you may be communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically, such as e-mails, texts, mobile push notices, or notices and messages on the Site or through the Services, and you represent that you can retain copies of these communications for your records. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

6. Terms of Engagement

If you choose to sign up and become a client of Aegis Accounting, you will additionally become subject to the terms of our Terms of Engagement.

7. Feedback

We welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”). You can submit Feedback by emailing us at info@aegisaccounting.co.uk. You grant to us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise exploit the Feedback for any purpose.

THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.

17. General Terms

These Terms, and the Terms of Engagement if applicable (if you have signed up as a client of Aegis Accounting), constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Aegis Accounting and you regarding the Services and Content, and supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Aegis Accounting and you regarding the Services and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Aegis Accounting’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Aegis Accounting may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.

Any notices or other communications provided by Aegis Accounting under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

Aegis Accounting’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Aegis Accounting. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
