You may not copy, alter, reverse engineer, reproduce or otherwise derive and use any parts of the RegulApp and the intellectual property thereunder unless expressly permitted pursuant to the GTCs.
You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs on your User account and in your workspace and you must notify us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your User account or workspace or if your log-in details are stolen or lost. We shall not be liable for any losses that you incur as a result of any unauthorised use of your User account.
When you are provided with a User identification, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat this as confidential. You must not disclose it to any third party. If you know or suspect that a third party knows your User identification code or password, you must promptly contact us.
You must immediately notify us of any unauthorised uses of your account or any other breaches of security. We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. We may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) if we determine that you have violated any provision of these GTCs or that your conduct or content would tend to damage our reputation and goodwill or if we suspect any unauthorised use or misuse of the RegulApp. If we delete your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register in the RegulApp. We may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.
If you, as an organisation, create and maintain the User accounts of your personnel and partners, you shall be responsible alongside the individual Users for compliance with the security requirements under these GTCs. In such case, you shall be solely responsible for the legal right to access and use any personal data for the purposes of organising the usage of the RegulApp for your personnel and partners.
Fees may apply for your right to use the RegulApp, which shall be individually agreed with Company. Certain restrictions on number of users, legal changers search criteria, or data-base volumes may apply based on your subscription and agreement with us.
You may access a free or trial version of the RegulApp with limited functionalities free of charge and for a limited time period. The use of the RegulApp with full functionalities is paid on subscription basis or subject to individual commercial arrangements with Company.
We reserve the right to further develop, update, and change the functionalities, the interface, design and the outlook of the RegulApp.
For the avoidance of doubt, no fees shall apply unless we have expressly agreed with you in writing (email suffice) on such fees.
Future updates such as adding new websites that the regulatory auto-tracking systems follow, new jurisdictions, or other functionalities may be subject to additional fees.
Invoicing shall be done monthly or yearly based on the agreed subscription plan.
We do not own any data, information or material (collectively, "User Content") that you submit or create in the RegulApp while using it. You shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all maintained User Content. You shall have sole responsibility to manage your User Content.
You grant RegulApp’s technical team a permission to access, copy, distribute, store, transmit, reformat, display, and perform your User Content solely as required for the purpose of providing the RegulApp to you, making the User Content visible and available to you in the RegulApp, and for the automated tracking of legal changes.
RegulApp team does not have access to and does not review the User Content. Solely upon your explicit request and to the extent necessary for technical support or other support, we may, but have no obligation to, access and review the User Content in the RegulApp that you have submitted or created.
In exception to the foregoing two paragraphs, we reserve the right to monitor, access, and use only that part of your User Content that is used for the automated tracking of legal updates (ie names of legal acts and key-words) in order (i) to improve our tracking technology and algorithms, including through machine learning, and (ii) improve the general services on the RegulApp to clients and user. Our use of such content is made without linking the content with a particular User or group of Users.
We might be obliged by law to disclose any content to competent authorities in which case the super admin of RegulApp may access the User Content and share it only to the extent and as requested to the competent authority. We understand that the User Content created by professional advisors (such as lawyers) shall always be under the protection of professional secrecy rules provided for in the laws applicable to the creator of such content. To the fullest extent possible and permitted by law, we shall not disclose to third parties and public authorities any User Content that is under the protection of professional secrecy. If a competent authority requests that we disclose or provide any User Content that is created by a professional advisor, we shall invoke the professional secrecy rules that apply to the creator of the User Content. In all cases when we are requested by a Competent Authority we shall promptly notify the User of such request, when possible in advance, unless we are restricted or guided to do otherwise by mandatory applicable law.
Currently the RegulApp automatically tracks and alerts Users for legal changes related to your User Content in certain Governmental websites in certain jurisdictions based on the names of the legal acts and specific key words that Users add to their Advices. Each User is solely responsible to make sure that the key words and names of laws are spelled correctly. Names of laws shall be spelled in full and exactly as published by the competent authorities.
We will be adding new countries and Governmental sites to be monitored and tracked by the RegulApp over the time upon our development plans. We may also agree to add ahead or outside of the planned schedule jurisdictions and sites upon Users’ individual requests, in which cases additional fees may apply.
We do not guarantee 100% reliability and success of the automated tracking. The performance of the automated system may depend on or be affected by the availability of certain websites, general technical issues, any problems in the global Internet, failure of technical infrastructure, cyber-attack, distributed denial-of-service attack, any other attack which interrupts or impairs the IT network or hardware failure or other temporary technical problems that we experience.
The RegulApp is designed to provide best results when the User uses specific and elaborate key-words that are fed to the system. If you use genering words and symbols (such as ‘and’, ‘shall’, ‘law’, ‘ordinance’, etc.), the system may refuse to produce results and prompt you not to use search criteria that are too generic.
RegulApp provides assistance service and helpdesk for the use of the App that shall be subject to the service level agreement provided to you. By accepting these GTCs and using the RegulApp you also consent to the Service Level Agreement and it shall be binding towards you as a User.
You may contact us for technical issues and support at: ‘email@example.com’ or ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’.
