Terms of Service

Terms of Service

Last updated March 8, 2018

Introduction

This is a legally binding agreement (“Terms”) governing Your (“You”, “Your”) access and use of our sites, mobile apps, products and services (collectively the “Service”) and all data, files, content or material uploaded, downloaded, produced, viewed or otherwise accessed through our Service (collectively the “Content”).

The Service is provided by Ideanote ApS, with offices at Rigensgade 5, DK-1316, Copenhagen, Denmark, registered at the Danish business authority with VAT ID 36896183  - in short referred to as “Ideanote”, “Us”, or “We”. Together You and Ideanote make out the “Parties” of these Terms (individually the “Party”). By visiting one of our websites or otherwise making use of parts of Our Service, You are considered a “User” of our Services.

By using Ideanote, you agree to these Terms. If You do not agree or comply with these Terms, You must not accept them and must not start or continue to use Ideanote.

We reserve the right to adjust and change these Terms of Service and any documents included by reference at any time. If a change is material we will let you know in advance. By continuing to use Ideanote after the effective date, you agree to the new version.

Access to the Service

Account

Ideanote will provide You with the ability to create and maintain a username, email, and password for accessing the Service (an Ideanote “Account”). By accessing an Ideanote Account, You agree to provide true, accurate, and complete information during registration and to update Your information during use to keep it current.

By accessing Ideanote through an Account, You warrant that You are a human (not a bot) and at least 18 years old. You also warrant that You have sufficient capacity to enter into legally binding contracts and that You do not break any laws or regulations by entering into these Terms.

As Your email and password are personal and considered to be confidential information You are at all times entirely liable for all acts and omissions by people, You have allowed to access the platform through Your Account. You are responsible for keeping Your Ideanote Account safe and secure from unauthorized access and must notify us promptly of any unauthorized use or security breach to Your Account.

Joining a Space

The Service might allow You to access a registered subdomain (a “Space”) identified with an URL (e.g. unicorn.ideanote.io) and a name (e.g. Unicorn Inc). Spaces allow groups of participants who have a common interest or affiliation to share Content and collaborate.

You might access Ideanote Spaces by logging in to or creating an Account (in which case You are referred to as a “Member”) or without logging in to or creating an Account for the Service (in which case You are referred to as a “Visitor”) .

Any Space may contain Content not suitable for You.

You can always choose to leave a Space if You find it to be unsuitable in any way.

Space Ownership

Ideanote might provide You with the ability to create and/or maintain a Space. Every such Space has one specific Member with more access and editing rights as well as overall responsibility, referred to as the “Owner Account” or “Owner”.  When registering a Space, You will be made a Member of the Space and assigned to be the Owner Account. At any point in time there is one Owner Account on every Space.

At the same time, every Space has one person or entity that is responsible for the activity on that Space, known as the “Customer”. You acknowledge and agree that by becoming a Member of a Space You can be assigned or have preassigned the role of an Account Owner and can be made responsible as a Customer.

Inviting People

In using our Service it may be possible for You to share invitation links, inviting people by email or in other ways make the Space available to more people. By sharing these invitation links or inviting people, or in other ways making it possible for people to join a Space, You accept that You can be held responsible for their conduct and the Content posted by them. You accept that you are responsible for keeping people that you allow to access the Space aware of the rights and these Terms of using the Service, as well as ensuring the legality and lawfulness of them using the Service.

Third Party Services

Ideanote reserves the right to use know-how, people or technology provided by a third-party to deliver parts of the Service under these Terms. This may include but is not limited to for example third-party payment processors, email infrastructure providers and/or User authentication. Please be advised that third-party Services might have their own terms and policies that govern Your conduct through terms, conditions and privacy policies in addition to these Terms. You can review a list of third-party providers that might further govern Your conduct at https://ideanote.io/acknowledgements.

Ideanote is not responsible and is not liable for any connection to or reliance on Content of third-party websites or services. Our links to third-party websites or Content do not imply that We support, promote, guarantee or recommend any such Content or website, their views or their authors or owners.

In using our Service it may be possible for You to connect Content, Accounts or Spaces with third-party services. If You choose to connect Content, Accounts or Spaces on the Service with a third-party service (e.g. through an API, Webhook, Authentication, SSO or similar integration) You are responsible for what these third-party services do with this Content, including wanted or unwanted use, disclosure, loss, modification or deletion of any or all such Content, Accounts or Spaces. Please be advised that third-party Services might have their own terms and policies that govern Your rights and conduct.

Who Owns Content?

Your Content stays your Content.

By submitting Content to the Service You warrant that (i) You have the necessary ownership rights, licenses and consent to grant us the necessary rights to run and improve Our Service (ii) the Content itself, Your action of uploading, posting, communicating or otherwise making it available via the Service is in no way infringing or violating a third-party’s rights in any way and does not result in the violation of any law or regulation.

You acknowledge that You have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use any and all Content that You submit.  Furthermore, You are fully liable if such Content is infringing upon third-party rights, and accordingly agree to indemnify Ideanote for all claims and losses related to such infringement and/or illegality.

You are aware that by submitting Content to Ideanote You might be sharing it with other people.

You are aware aware that other people might choose to share, edit, make available to third-parties or otherwise take action on Content You submit to Ideanote.

You give Us the worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual right to store, display, modify, edit, send, delete, scan, analyze, track, repackage and reproduce Your Content to the extent necessary to provide our Service - without further notice or consent from You. This right extends to partners and third-party services that we work together with to allow for a smooth operation of the Service. This allows the Service, for example, to display Your idea to other people after You have posted it, to crop an image or to export an idea to a connected task management platform.

We reserve some rights to improve the Service

You consent that Ideanote can use Your activities and Content on the Service to continuously optimize the performance and presentation of the Service. We reserve the right to publish our findings on an anonymized aggregate level. An example of an anonymized finding would be study of how many people, in general, comment on an idea they have also liked.

We also retain the right, but not the obligation, to directly access Your account data or a Space on invitation by a Member of a Space for purposes of technical maintenance, content oversight or investigation as well as general Customer support.

Any feedback or circumstantial analytical evidence knowingly given or unknowingly resulting from usage of using our Service can freely be exploited by Us to improve Our Service or technology without this resulting in You having or receiving any rights or ownership of them.

We do not allow unauthorized access, editing or sharing of Your Content by Our employees. Ideanote and its Employees shall retain the right, but not the obligation, to generally monitor and observe Your activities on Our Service

Customer Agreement

Customer Agreement

Last updated March 8, 2018

The terms and conditions below (“Customer Agreement”) supplement and amend the Terms of Service, available at https://ideanote.io/terms. If there is any conflict between the Customer Agreement and the Terms of Service, the applicable terms in the Customer Agreement will prevail. Capitalized expressions not defined in the Customer Agreement have the meaning set out in the Terms of Service.

Customer Responsibilities

If a Space is registered through an Account with a personal email and/or is registered for a personal cause that is not affiliated with a business, organization, brand or another entity the Owner Account on the Space is personally responsible for the activity on the Space. In this case the Owner Account on the Space is considered to be the Customer and is also referred to as a “Personal Customer”.

If a Space is registered from an Account with a business email and/or for a company, business, organization, brand or similar the Owner Account on the Space agrees to these Terms on behalf of the entity and acts as a representative for the entity. In this case the entity is considered to be the Customer and is also referred to as a “Business Customer”.

A Customer is solely responsible for setting into action what happens with his Space he owns on the Service. As a Customer (having control of the Owner Account) it might, for example, be possible to enable, disable or otherwise change settings, options, access and editing right, roles of Members and properties of the Space, invite people, share access, add third-party integrations and much more. A Customer is responsible for causing wanted or unwanted use, disclosure, loss, modification or deletion of any Content, Accounts or Spaces for Spaces he is a Customer on.

The Customer on a Space is considered an intermediary with the obligation to regulate actions and Content of Accounts with access to the Space. The Customer on a Space is at all times entirely liable for all acts and omissions by people that he actively or passively allows to access the Space.

Customer Confidentiality

Unless explicitly authorized in writing by the other Party, neither Party shall disclose to any third Party any confidential Information of the other Party, nor use such Confidential Information in any manner other than to perform its obligations under these Terms. Confidential Information within the context of these Terms means any non-public information and/or materials that can reasonably be understood to be confidential and is provided by a Party under these Terms to the other Party. For example, a good indicator that material is considered confidential is if the word Confidential is featured prominently in the header or footer. This does not cover how we handle Content on our Service.

The foregoing restrictions do not apply to any information that is publicly disclosed through no fault of the receiving Party, is already lawfully in the receiving Party’s possession and not subject to a confidentiality obligation to the disclosing Party, becomes known to the receiving Party from a third party having an apparent bona fide right to disclose the information, or is confidential Information that the receiving Party is obligated to produce pursuant to an order of a court of competent jurisdiction or a valid administrative subpoena, provided the receiving Party supplies the disclosing Party with timely notice of such court order or subpoena.

We are proud of all our Customers. We reserve the right to showcase the name and logo of any Customer in lists, online or any promotional material as well as verbally refer to them as Customer. If You would like Us to cease using Your logo and name please contact us at legal@ideanote.io. Ideanote reserves the right to contact You to ask You for quotes and/or to participate in the writing of a Customer Case outlining the results of using the Service to be published and disseminated.

Subscriptions

Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (fittingly called “Subscription” and “Subscriptions”).

You agree to pay for Subscriptions that You purchase or use, according to the pricing and payment terms presented to You on an order form, on our Service, or in, in special circumstances, on a Subscription offer sent by one of our employees (an “Offer”).

Billing Cycle and Billing Periods

You can choose to pay for a Subscription either on a monthly basis (“Monthly Billing”) or on a yearly basis (“Yearly Billing”). This “Billing Cycle” governs the length of the “Billing Period”, the time for which a Subscription is paid.

A Billing Period is entered when a Subscription begins or is modified or when You change Your Billing Cycle. The day a Billing Period commences is called the “Start Date” of a Billing Period. The “End Date” of a Billing Period depends on the Billing Cycle.

With Monthly Billing, the End Date of a Billing Period is on, or close to the same date the next month. For example, if You are paying with Monthly Billing and You start a Subscription on the 15th of October, You will have the 15th of November as the End Date for the Billing Period.

With Yearly Billing, the End Date of a Billing Period is on, or close to the same date the next year. For example, if You are paying with Yearly Billing, starting a Subscription on the 15th of October will have the 15th of October in the next Year as the End Date for the Billing Period.

In the case that the Start Date is close to the end of the Month, You can experience that the End Date over time will shift back some days to stay within the Month. For example, a Customer with Monthly Billing  entering a Billing Period with a Start Date on October 31 will have a corresponding End Date on November 30.  The End Date will not automatically shift forward again in longer months.

Automatic Renewal and Recurring Billing

You hereby agree to automatic renewal of Subscriptions. This means that any Subscription You purchase will renew at the end of its Billing Period, unless You cancel it before. That is why they are called Subscriptions.

By registering a credit card with Ideanote, You hereby agree to recurring billing. You authorized Us (or a designated third-party provider) to bill and automatically charge Your Credit Card on the (or close to the) same date every Billing Period, starting from the time a Subscription is bought or updated or You change Your Billing Cycle. What You are paying for depends on Your choice of Subscription and can be seen at checkout, on our pricing page at https://ideanote.io/pricing or specified in an Offer.

Please be aware that the price of a Subscription might depend on certain usage parameters, for example the number of ideas collected on a Space. You give consent that any changes affecting a Subscription during a Billing Period (e.g upgrades, downgrades, additional or canceled subscriptions, additional usage, fees) are automatically reflected in the next bill sent to You.

Payment Terms, Taxes and Functionality

Payments for Subscriptions must always be made in advance and payment is due no later than ten (10) days past the invoice date. In special circumstances, other methods of payments (e.g. a bank transfer) might be requested by Ideanote. Costs of Subscription may include fees for payment card processing of up to 4% of a Subscription price. What the Customer is paying for depends on his choice of Subscription and can be seen at checkout date.

Ideanote Subscriptions are pre-paid and non-refundable. Ideanote does in general not provide refunds or exchange for any partial time of use of its Service, any remaining Credits, data or Content except when required by law or explicitly stated in an Offer. In the event that the credit card registered with Ideanote is invalid for payment for any reason, or an invoice has otherwise been left unpaid then the Customer will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. In case of non-payment, we reserve the right to apply a monthly late fee of up to 2% of the outstanding amount.

To comply with Danish consumer protection laws, we only allow Yearly Billing if the total yearly billed amount is clearly below the equivalent of 20.000 DKK (around 3000 USD) and/or if You are registered with a valid VAT ID in the billing details.

All prices might be stated exclusive of taxes (VAT or otherwise), which may or may not be added to the price, depending on applicable law and Your legal residence. If You are registered with official residence outside of the EU, You will not be charged VAT for our Service. If You are registered with official residence in the EU, but have not registered a valid European VAT ID, You will be charged the applicable VAT rate of the EU country You are registered in. If You register payment information for a valid non-Danish EU company with a valid EU VAT ID, You will not be charged VAT from Us, but reverse charge rules apply. If You register billing information representing a valid Danish company with a valid Danish VAT, You will be charged Danish VAT on the Subscription. You are responsible for paying any applicable taxes or fees.

From time to time we might give insight into when and which new features on Our Service are expected to be available. Buying decisions should not depend on this information, as we cannot guarantee them. We reserve the right to adjust the prices, fees, functionality, and usage limits or other limitations for the Service and Subscriptions from time to time. Adjusted prices for active Subscriptions shall take effect earliest upon Your subsequent Billing Period of the Service following the date of the price change.

Proration

You might change Your Subscription or the way You Pay, entering a new Billing Period while already in a Billing Period. If You change or add a Subscription or change your Billing Cycle in a way that results in Us billing You more, You automatically enter a new Billing Period and a calculation process called “Proration” takes place.

Proration occurs for example if an existing Subscription is upgraded to a more expensive one, if You add an additional Subscription to Your Subscriptions, if a Subscription exceeds the usage limit, or if You change Your Billing Cycle from Monthly Billing to Yearly Billing. To be clear, Proration can never lead to Us paying out any amounts to You.

Proration means that We will calculate how much of the current Billing Period You have already used on a day-by-day basis, calling the remaining unused but paid for amount the “Prorated Amount” and subtracting it from Your new Invoice as a discount. For example, You are paying for one Subscription with Monthly Billing in a Billing Period with Start Date on November 15 and End Date on December 15. If it is December 10 and You add an additional Subscription, the Prorated Amount is the amount corresponding to the remaining 5 out of 30 days of use. You will enter a new Billing Period with Start Date on December 10 and You will be issued a new invoice based on the two combined Subscriptions, minus the Prorated Amount.

Trials

Ideanote may offer limited-time access to paid Subscriptions (referred to as “Trials”). When using a Trial, You are granted access to the features of a given Subscription on a Space for a limited amount of time (the “Trial Period”), disclosed at the outset of the Trial. After termination of the Trial, You have the option to register payment information to stay on the Subscription.

If You have already registered payment information on the relevant Account or Space, the Trial will automatically turn into a paid Subscription with Monthly Billing at the end of the Trial period, if it is not canceled before.

Credit

You may have the possibility to acquire virtual currency (“Credit”) for Your Account or for a Space for certain actions You or third-parties perform. These actions may be, but are not limited to, signing up, referring people to use Ideanote, reaching an activity milestone or completing a survey.

Although the Credit may be visualized in USD or other currencies, this Credit is no legal tender, does not hold inherent value and cannot be refunded, transferred or exchanged for cash, goods or services. It can and may not be traded, sold, bought or exchanged with third parties. However, Credit You have earned can and will automatically be used to reduce the amount to be paid on bills for Your Subscriptions. In doing so, Credit is used up.

We reserve the right to allow for or stop ways to receive or use Credit at Our discretion. Any given Space can only accumulate Credit of up to a virtual equivalent of 300 USD. We reserve the right to remove any Credit after 3 months without use.

Termination of Subscriptions

As a Customer, if You wish to cancel a Subscription, You may do so via the billing page in the settings or by contacting us directly. You may cancel a Monthly Subscription at any time and a Yearly Subscription at any time up to 30 days in advance of the end of the Billing Period. Access to the additional features or limits of the Subscription will stay accessible until the end of the Billing Period.

If You successfully cancel or otherwise terminate a Subscription in a Billing Period, You will not have to pay for the next upcoming Billing Period. For example, if You are paying with Monthly Billing from 14th to 14th of each month and terminate the Subscription on the 13th of one month You will not be billed on the 14th of that month for the next Billing Period.

In case of non-payment for any reason or any violation of these Terms and Conditions, Ideanote shall be entitled - without liability - to immediately bar access to the Service and/or parts of the Service and/or bar access to paid Subscriptions, and/or to terminate a Space You are in control of. In practice, Ideanote will make reasonable efforts to inform the You of unsuccessful, invalid or missing payments before taking such steps.

Termination

Should an Account or Space be terminated, You agree and acknowledge that Ideanote has no obligation to retain Content and that such Data may be irretrievably deleted if the deleted account was removed longer than 30 days prior to the request for renewed access.

You agree and acknowledge that Ideanote has no obligation to retain the Content on a Space, and may delete such Content without prior notice, if the Customer has materially breached these Terms, including but not limited to failure to pay outstanding fees, and such breach has not been cured within twenty (20) days of notice of such breach; or upon termination of these Terms for any reason.

Misrepresentation

As a Customer, it is Your responsibility to keep the contact and payment information for the Space current. If We have reasonable grounds to suspect that information You provided for an Account or a Space is untrue, incomplete, not up to date or otherwise misrepresenting or deceiving, We reserve the right to suspend or permanently terminate Your Account, Your use of the Service or parts of the Service and/or access to any Space You are a Customer for.

Non-Personal Information includes information that cannot be used to personally identify You, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information We may collect, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences You submit and preferences that are generated based on the data You submit and number of clicks.

Personal Information includes but is not limited to Your email and name which You submit to Us through the registration process of Our Service. Customers may choose to identify by providing Us with their Company name during the registration process.

Information collected via Technology

To become a Member on the Service, You do not need to submit any Personal Information other than Your email address and Your name. To use the Service thereafter, it is not necessary to submit further Personal Information.

However, in an effort to improve the quality of the Service, We track information provided to Us by Your browser or by Our software application when You view or use the Service, such as the website You came from (known as the “referring URL”), the type of browser You use, the device from which You connected to the Service, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify You. We track this information using cookies or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from Our servers and are stored on the user’s computer storage space. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables Us to collect Non-Personal information about that User and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing Our Service, both on an individual and aggregate basis.

We may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on Your computer or other device after You close Your session and until You delete them, while session cookies expire when You close Your browser. For a list of the Cookies used in Our Service, please view Our Cookies Policy accessible at https://ideanote.io/terms#cookies.

How We use and share information

Personal Information

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, We do not sell or trade Your Personal Information with third parties without Your consent. Nor do we otherwise share Your Personal Information with third parties for marketing purposes without Your consent. We do share Personal Information with vendors who are performing services for the Company, such as the servers for Our email communications who are provided access to Members’ email addresses for purposes of sending emails from Us to You. Those vendors use Your Personal Information only at Our direction. You can further inform yourself about Our vendors and their policies on https://ideanote.io/terms#cookies and https://ideanote.io/terms#acknowledgements.

In general, the Personal Information You provide to Us is used to help Us communicate with You. For example, We use Personal Information to contact users in response to questions, solicit feedback from users, provide technical support, and to proactively inform Users about promotional offers or activity that they could perform on Our Service.

In general, when providing Us with Personal Information, You must assume that other people will be able to view that information on Your profile as long as they are part of the same Space. Certain features within Our Service might make it possible for the Customer or Members to analyze, view, display and in the end share Personal Information linked with Content or Activity performed by You. An example of this might be a report featuring a specific Member as having created the most ideas on a Space.

Non-Personal Information

In general, We use Non-Personal Information to help Us improve the Service and customize the user experience. We also aggregate Non-Personal Information in order to track trends and analyze use patterns on the Site. Ideanote also reserves the right to perform aggregate analysis of content submitted by Members across Spaces, as long as the sample size is large enough for Members and customers to remain anonymous. This Privacy Policy does not limit in any way Our use or disclosure of Non-Personal Information, and We reserve the right to use and disclose such Non-Personal Information to Our partners, advertisers and other third parties at Our discretion.

In the event that We undergo a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of Our assets, Your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge and consent that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of Our assets may continue to process Your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If Our information practices change at any time in the future, We will post the policy changes to the Site so that You may opt out of the new information practices. We suggest that You check the Site periodically if You are concerned about how Your information is used.

How We Protect Information

We implement security measures designed to protect Your information from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by Your account password and We urge You to take steps to keep Your personal information safe by not disclosing Your password and by logging out of Your Account after each use. We further protect Your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that Your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using Our Service, You acknowledge that You understand and agree to assume these risks.

Your Rights regarding the use of Your Personal Information

You can indicate that You do not wish to receive notifications communication from Us in the “Settings” section of the Site. This setting does not cover Us contacting You for other purposes.

You have the right at any time to prevent Us from contacting You for marketing purposes. When We send a promotional communication to a User, the User can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail.

Please note that notwithstanding any settings or indication of preferences, We may continue to send You administrative emails with notices that we, at our sole discretion, consider important.

In particular, We provide a limited amount of Your information (such as Your email address and sign-up date) to Intercom, Inc. (“Intercom”) and utilize Intercom to collect data for analytics purposes when You visit Our website or use Our product.

Intercom analyzes Your use of Our website and/or product and tracks Our relationship so that We can improve Our Service to You.

Ideanote will not forward marketing material from third parties to You. If You choose to contact Our customer service we retain the right to write back, call or otherwise contact You back.

We might forward notifications about activity on our Service, that We deem relevant for You, to Your email or through other channels. For example, if someone likes an idea You have posted or if You have been invited to a Space. You can opt out of some of these notifications by changing the notification settings in the Service.

We will forward product news, contests or useful information on how to use our product that we deem relevant to Your use of the Service as We see fit. You can opt out of communication sent to You by unsubscribing our emails or by contacting us directly.

However, We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by those websites or the information or content they contain.
