The following are the terms and conditions for use of the Scout website service ("Service"), a product of Zimuth, Inc ("Scout"). Please read them carefully before using the Service.
BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU (the terms "you" or "yours" includes the person or entity that is registered with the Service as well as any third parties accessing the Service on your behalf) ARE STATING THAT YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE SERVICE ("Agreement"). The Service is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein.
- You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
- You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Scout cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
- Your login may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. You may create separate logins for as many people as you'd like.
- From time to time, Scout may find it necessary to access your account. For instance, Scout may access your account for support, maintenance or security-related reasons. In such event, Scout will, if possible, provide you notice of its intent [to use your username] to do so. Regardless of whether such notice is provided, you acknowledge and consent to such access.
- One person or legal entity may not maintain more than one free account.
- You may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
Payment, Refund, Upgrading and Downgrading
- The Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable.
- If you initially sign up for a non-free subscription, and you don't cancel that account within 14 days, you will be billed monthly starting on the 14th day after your account was initially created. If you cancel prior to the processing of your first invoice on the 14th day, you will not be charged.
- For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.
- There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. No exceptions will be made in order to treat everyone equally.
- Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. Scout does not accept any liability for such loss.
- The only accepted method for canceling your account is via the Service account settings. An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation. You can cancel your account at any time when you are logged into your Service account by going to your account settings and using the cancellation link.
- All of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information can not be recovered once your account is cancelled.
- Scout, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other Scout service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all Content in your Account. Scout reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
- If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up month, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again.
