TERMS OF USE

Last updated: April 20, 2020

These Terms of Use ("Agreement") apply to the use of the zeitcaster.com website, mobile application Widget, and the content and data available through those channels (collectively, the "Platform"). Certain areas of the Platform may also have other terms that apply specifically to those areas. Those terms are incorporated herein by reference with regard to use of those specific areas.

The Platform is operated by Zeitbyte, LLC ("we," "us" or "Zetitcaster"). "You" means you, the person accessing or using the Platform. The "Widget," which allows you to display on other websites the data from our Platform, is described in Section 4.2, below.

By accessing or using the Platform, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement affects your rights – please read it carefully.

SECTION 1 – ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

Your use of the Platform is expressly conditioned on your acceptance without modification of this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, you may not use the Platform. By using the Platform, you signify your acceptance of this Agreement, as we may amend it from time to time. We reserve the right to modify this Agreement at any time without prior notice.

The Platform, and the products and services available via the Platform, are not intended to be used by persons under the legal age of majority in their jurisdiction. By agreeing to the terms of this Agreement, you represent that you are at least the legal age of majority where you live.

SECTION 2 – ACCOUNT

Subject to the terms of this Agreement, you may establish an account through the zeitcaster.com website or mobile app (an "Account"). An Account allows you access to 30 days of Zeitcaster data, the use of our search tools, the ability to create entries in your Address Book and to create Saved Searches, and access to other features. It also lets you create and preview Widgets (putting a Widget on your website requires a separate fee; please see Section 4.2, below).

When you subscribe for an Account, you will be billed a monthly fee on a recurring basis, unless and until you cancel your subscription through the zeitcaster.com website or mobile app, or by contacting us at support@zeitcaster.com. You may cancel your Account subscription at any time, which will stop the automatic monthly renewal. Partial refunds are not given for the current month.

We use a third party payment processor, currently Stripe, Inc., to process financial transactions. Apple, Inc. may process a financial transaction if you make a purchase through the Apple App Store. If you have any concerns with a payment, please contact us at support@zeitcaster.com and we will endeavor to resolve the matter with the payment processor.

Your Account may be accessed only through your user name and password. You are solely responsible for all information posted via, and for all activities that occur under, your Account. For security reasons, you must keep your user name and password confidential and not disclose them to any person or permit any person to use them. You should choose a password that is unique to you and not easily guessed by others. You should change your password on a regular basis, and you should log out at the end of each session.

We may suspend your Account or cancel your user name or password at any time at our sole discretion, without prior notice or liability to you or any other person. We are not under any obligation to verify the actual identity or authority of the user of any user name or password.

You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Account, or if you know or suspect that your user name or password has been lost or stolen, has become known to any other person, or has been otherwise compromised. We are not responsible for the unauthorized use of your Account.

SECTION 4 – ACCOUNT PURCHASES

SECTION 4.1: GENERAL

The Platform allows you to make purchases through your Account, which are subject to the terms of this Agreement. You are responsible for all activity through your Account, including payment for all charges incurred.

All purchases are final sale, and may not be canceled, exchanged or refunded.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to limit the sales of our products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction, and to reject, correct, limit quantities of, cancel or refuse orders, including when we believe there may be a violation of applicable law or harm to our interests or the interests of any third party. We may exercise these rights on a case-by-case basis.

We attempt for the information on the Platform to be as accurate as possible, but the Platform may contain typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions. At times, these may relate to product or service descriptions, product or service availability, pricing, promotions, offers, event dates and timing, and/or other matters. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and/or to change or update information, or adjust product or service information, if any information is inaccurate or becomes inaccurate at any time (which may include after you have submitted your order or confirmed a purchase, in which case we will work with you to rectify the situation). We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the availability of any products or services shown on the Platform without prior notice. While we endeavor to fulfill your requests, at times we may need to change or cancel products or services based on availability and other circumstances.

All products and services advertised on the Platform are invitations for you to purchase goods or services from us, and are not offers to sell by us. Your order is deemed accepted by us only when we send a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you provided. If you would like to change your order, please contact Customer Service at support@zeitcaster.com.

SECTION 4.2 – WIDGETS

If you would like to display Zeitcaster event data on another website, you may request a Widget subscription through your Account. Widgets are a simple and cost-effective way to put Zeitcaster event data on other websites. A Widget recurring monthly fee subscription allows you to create and preview Widgets on your own website. You may customize the data displayed so it appeals to your unique audience. You may cancel your Widget subscription at any time, which will stop the automatic monthly renewal. Partial refunds are not given for the current month.
