You declare that by creating an account, you hereby consent to, us sending, and you receiving, by means of telephone, facsimile, SMS or e-mail, communications containing content of a commercial nature relating to your use of our website, the SwitcheRR service and related services, including further information and offers from us that we believe you may find useful or interesting, such as newsletters, marketing or promotional materials. You acknowledge that we do not have to obtain your prior consent (whether written or oral) before sending such communications to you, provided that we shall immediately cease to send any such further communications should you notify us in writing that you do not wish to receive such commercial content anymore.
2.2 The SwitcheRR service
The SwitcheRR service consists of a system that automatically converts the content of your existing website to a responsive website running on top of WordPress (your “converted website”). After you have created an account and the SwitcheRR service has created a default version of your converted website, you can log into your account and tailor your mobile website with our web based tools.
Our goal is to make the SwitcheRR service available at least 99.5% of the time, excluding the periods where we conduct scheduled maintenance or where unforeseeable and unavoidable service outages occur due to internet, network, or internet service provider related downtime outside our systems and/or control.
You as a customer are only given a right to use the SwitcheRR service. Except as otherwise provided in this agreement, no other rights, such as intellectual property rights of SwitcheRR, its affiliates or any third party, are transferred to you under this agreement. This agreement is not a sale and does not convey to you any rights of ownership in or related to SwitcheRR property. Any enhancements or other changes to the SwitcheRR service shall be subject to the terms of this agreement automatically and without notice to you.
Support is provided by our web based user documentation support system to all customers. Email and phone support may also be provided. We strive to provide a response to support requests no later than the business day following the day the request is made. Response and resolution times may vary depending on the nature of the issue reported. Requests not addressed by our user documentation will usually be given priority. SwitcheRR support hours are listed on the SwitcheRR website.
SwitcheRR performs regular maintenance to the SwitcheRR service in an effort to maintain the SwitcheRR service in stable and operational condition, and aims to enhance the SwitcheRR service over time. Maintenance includes error correction and other adoptions to general shifts in the World Wide Web consortium’s standards. However, we do not warrant that your mobile website will appear the same way on all mobile devices, or that all mobile devices will be able to access your mobile website. Changes made to your website after the SwitcheRR service has been established may also influence on whether and how it appears on mobile devices.
You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video or other content you make available by use of the SwitcheRR service is your sole responsibility. SwitcheRR does not censor or control any such content made available by use of the SwitcheRR service and therefore does not warrant the accuracy, security, integrity or legality of such content.
You grant SwitcheRR the following non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, world-wide rights and licenses: to access, reproduce, distribute and publicly display the content, in whole or in part, to secure, preserve and make it publicly available, and to make derivative works based upon the content in order to migrate the content to other media or formats, or to preserve its public access.
By using the SwitcheRR service you, or your website users may be exposed to offensive, pornographic, indecent or objectionable content. In no event shall SwitcheRR be held liable for any such content, or exposure to such content. Although SwitcheRR is not obliged to control any content, we are entitled to remove or block access to content that we determine, in our sole discretion, may be contrary to the agreement or applicable law, without liability to you.
By using the SwitcheRR service, you will be given one or more mobile-specific urls. SwitcheRR, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to reclaim the mobile-specific url and assign you another one.
As menu systems on websites may vary greatly, SwitcheRR cannot warrant that the SwitcheRR service interprets the menu on your website correctly, or that it is identified at all. You must therefore make sure the SwitcheRR service presents a correct reproduction of your website before giving the public or other intended users access to your mobile website. You are solely responsible for all the aspects of the content, use, “look and feel” and availability of your website (including your mobile website created by your use of the SwitcheRR service).
In order to enhance accessibility of your existing website on a mobile device, advertisements and other elements of your content may be stripped away. This shall not be deemed a defect.
The SwitcheRR service supports the viewing of advertisements generated and presented by the SwitcheRR service (not from your existing website). Paying customers may turn such advertisements on and off. Non-paying customers explicitly agree and accept that any such advertisements will occupy a part of the screen of the user without notice or compensation to such customer.
In the event the EU Data Protection Directive is applicable to your use of the SwitcheRR service, you agree that, as the one determining the purpose of any use of personal information, you are the controller. SwitcheRR, as the provider of the SwitcheRR service working on your behalf, is the processor.
Your data may be stored with professional data operators in Norway, the United States, Canada, countries in the European Union and/or other countries with robust privacy legislation and a stable political climate. By using the SwitcheRR service, you give your consent to the collection, use and transfer of such data, to and from such countries.
Our ability to maintain your privacy is dependent upon your compliance with this agreement, including without limitation clause 5.1.
3 Limited warranty – SLA
If SwitcheRR does not meet our high standard of availability set forth in Section 2.2 above, you may request a partial refund of the fee paid for the month in which the availability standard was not met. Such partial refund shall equal the percentage of actual downtime exceeding the standard set forth in Section 2.2 during the affected month multiplied by the fee paid on account of the affected month.
In order for us to be able to keep our prices reasonable, the above described refund is your sole remedy for the failure of SwitcheRR to meet the target level of availability of the SwitcheRR service. Refunds will be issued in the form of a credit towards your next payment, unless the affected month was pre-established by you as your final month of service, and you have informed us of that in writing prior to the SwitcheRR service outage. If so pre-established, your refund will be issued via wire transfer, Pay Pal or credit card payment (at our sole option) within 45 days. If you are not satisfied with the availability of the SwitcheRR service or with any aspect of the SwitcheRR service, you may also, of course, always terminate this agreement for your sole convenience in accordance with the terms of Section 6 below.
Except as stated in the previous paragraphs, SwitcheRR, its affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, employees and agents EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT, AND ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING AND USAGE OF TRADE;
WITHOUT LIMITING THE ABOVE, (I) WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE SITE, THE SERVICE OR THE CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, CONTINUOUS, TIMELY, SECURE, ACCURATE, CORRECT, COMPLETE OR AVAILABILE; (II) WE DO NOT ENDORSE OR APPROVE ANY CONTENT PROVIDED BY ANY PARTY THAN US AND DISCLAIM ALL LIABLITY WHATSOEVER THERETO; AND (III) WE DO NOT WARRANT OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE OR THE RESULTS OF THIS SITE, THE SERVICE OR THE CONTENT IN TERMS OF ITS CORRECTNESS, COMPLETENESS, RESULTS, AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR OTHERWISE. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE SWITCHERR SERVICE.
No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from SwitcheRR, any of SwitcheRR’s affiliates or employees, or through the SwitcheRR service or SwitcheRR website content will create any warranty not expressly stated herein.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
4 Planned maintenance
SwitcheRR makes every effort to perform all service maintenance activities during pre-scheduled maintenance windows. Currently, the maintenance windows are set for Saturday and Sunday mornings, from 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. US Central Standard Time as well as weekdays between 3:00 am and 5 a.m. U.S. Central Standard Time. We may not utilize every maintenance window. If system downtime is planned outside any maintenance window, we will issue an announcement prior to the date of the planned maintenance activity.
