Terms of Service
Last updated 1st December, 2019
Thank you for using the Polite Toolbox!
These are the Terms of Service ("Terms") associated with your access to and use of our online tools, websites and platform (the "Sites") and the services, features, content or applications offered by the Polite Toolbox ("we" or "our") (collectively with the Site, the "Services"), a L8RMedia SARL ("The Company") product. Please read them carefully before using the Services. By using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
The Terms are governed by French law. They may be modified or updated from time to time without prior notice to you. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
The most current version will always be at http://www.polite.one/toolbox/tos.
These Terms, together with all updates and any additional terms applicable collectively, constitute the legal Agreement between you ("The Licensee") and the Polite Toolbox.
We value your privacy and will take all reasonable steps to safeguard the security of any information you input or send to us by using secure services and encryption technology.
Subject to these Terms, The Polite Toolbox may offer to provide the Services, as described more fully on the Site, and which are selected by you, solely for your own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. Services shall include, but not be limited to, any services the Polite Toolbox performs for you, any applications offered by the Polite Toolbox that you download from the Site or, subject to the terms set out under the "Third-party Sites and Services" section below, from third-party application stores (including but not exclusively Chrome Web Store, iTunes® Store, Google Play and/or any other application stores available now or in the future) authorized by The Polite Toolbox, as well as the offering of any materials displayed or performed on or through the Services (including content as defined below).
This section is related to the pro account subscriptions.
To the extent you use a pro account that is made available for a fee, you will be required to select a payment subscription on a monthly or yearly period.
You will be required to provide the Polite Toolbox accurate information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument and to promptly update your account information with any changes in your payment information.
You agree to pay the Polite Toolbox the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated for that Service, and you authorize the Polite Toolbox to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with such terms.
Payments will first be charged on the day you sign up for a pro service and will cover the use of that Service for a monthly or yearly period as indicated.
If you are delayed with your payment obligations (including immediately after the first default), we may decide to block access to your pro account. If your Account is in arrears, starting at one payment, we will be entitled to terminate the Agreement without notice. In this case, you will remain obliged to reimburse the outstanding amount.
Pro account fees are not refundable except as required by law, and we reserve the right to change our prices in the future. If we increase our fees for your pro account, we will inform you of the change on the Site and by email at least 30 days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Service after the price change goes into effect constitutes your Agreement to pay the changed amount.
For purposes of these Terms, the term "Content" includes, without limitation, text, documents, files, photographs, videos, audio clips, music, sounds, eBooks or other materials or content, links to third-party websites and services or directly uploaded on third party websites and services through the Services, comments, information, data, any location information, Software, scripts, graphics, and interactive features generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible by the Polite Toolbox on or through the Services.
