Terms of Service
Please read this Agreement carefully before using the Services. By using the website http://grades.io (the "Site"), and applications, features and other content (collectively, the "Services") offered by Grades.io, you signify your assent to become bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you do not have any right to use the Services.
The Services are accessed by you ("User"or "you") under the following terms and conditions:
1. ACCESS TO THE SERVICES
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Grades.io may provide the Services, 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, the offering of any materials displayed or performed on the Site and related features (including, but not limited to text, data, software, graphics, photographs, images, illustrations, audio clips and video clips, also known as the "Content"). Grades.io may change, suspend or discontinue the Services for any reason, at any time, including the availability of any feature or Content. Grades.io may also restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. Grades.io may modify this Agreement at any time by posting a notice on the Services, or by sending you a notice via e-mail or postal mail. You shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Your use of the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified. If at any time you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you must terminate your use of the Services. You will still remain liable for any obligations incurred or charges accrued on or before the date of termination.
You certify to Grades.io that if you are an individual (i.e., not a corporation) you are at least 18 years of age. You also certify that you are legally permitted to use the Services and access the Site. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind such entity to this agreement, in which case the terms "you" or "your" shall refer to such entity. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to use the Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.
Grades.io will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the Services are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. However, there will be occasions when the Services will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and emergency repairs or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment. Every reasonable step will be taken by Grades.io to minimize such disruption where it is within Grades.io's reasonable control. Grades.io will not be liable in any event to you or any other party for any suspension, modification, discontinuance or lack of availability of the Site, the Services, your Customer Data or Results (as defined herein) or other content.
You shall not store any significant portion of the Content in any form. Copying or storing of any Content for other than personal, noncommercial use is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from Grades.io, or from the copyright holder identified in such Content's copyright notice. All trademarks, service marks, and trade names which appear on the Services are proprietary to Grades.io or third parties. You shall abide by all copyright notices and restrictions contained in any Content accessed through the Services.
The Services are protected by copyright as a collective work and/or compilation, pursuant to U.S. and other copyright laws.
