Your electronic order confirmation, or any form of confirmation, does not signify our acceptance of your order.

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to amend your order in accordance with your instructions.
We reserve the right to limit the sales of our products and services to any person, geographic region, or jurisdiction on a case-by-case basis at our sole and exclusive discretion.

SECTION 6 – 30-DAY REFUND POLICY
1. You must request a refund in writing by contacting [email protected] ;
2. Your request for a refund must be made within thirty (30) days of your initial purchase;
3. We do not offer refunds after the 30-day refund period has passed.
SECTION 7 - TRIAL OFFER, AUTOMATIC ENROLLMENT AND PAYMENT, AND CANCELLATION
Where we offer you a free trial of Teamly, such free trial will start immediately after your registration and continue for the free trial offer period as indicated on the Website at the time you register. Free trial subscriptions are only available to new subscribers of Teamly and for the limited periods as set out on the Website. Previous subscribers or those subscribers who have already benefited from a free trial subscription to Teamly do not qualify for a further free trial period.
If you do not want to continue your subscription after your free trial comes to an end, you must contact us at least 24 hours before your free trial period ends by submitting a cancellation request to us via our support email address [email protected], or by cancelling your free trial through your Account Dashboard. If you do not contact us at least 24 hours before your free trial period ends to cancel, your subscription will automatically continue and the payment card or method that you provided at the time of enrolment online will be charged the full Teamly monthly or annual membership subscription rate selected by you at the time of enrollment each month or year until you cancel. Teamly can change the monthly membership subscription rate at any time. If the membership subscription rate changes after you subscribe, we will notify you by e-mail and give you an opportunity to cancel.
SECTION 8 – SUBSCRIPTION TERMS AND AUTOMATIC PAYMENT
A Teamly user is responsible for paying all sums due to Teamly in connection with their monthly subscription in accordance with these Terms. The first fee payable in accordance with these Terms is due when the user account is set up and payment of the monthly or annual fee is a condition of access, or after your free trial ends and you have not canceled the automatic subscription with us. Every calendar month or year (depending on the subscription length you selected), your account will be charged the subscription fee plus applicable tax for the following month’s or year’s subscription, together with any other fees for the following month’s or year’s subscription plus any accumulated charges for the past period (collectively, “Fees”). Failure by the Teamly user to use any of the services available through the service provided by Teamly does not relieve the Teamly user of their payment obligations under these Terms.
Users can pay Fees by credit card or PayPal. Payment details will be collected by us through our secure financial data collection mechanism. You acknowledge and agree that we hold data relating to the transaction, including the last four digits and the expiration date of the card used to purchase the products or services together with details on when payment is due. The Teamly user further acknowledges and agrees that payments are due on a recurring basis in accordance with the payment terms for the specific product or service purchased (unless the subscription is cancelled or terminated in accordance with these Terms or the EULA) and therefore authorizes the automatic payment collection terms applicable to that specific product or service (e.g., on a monthly basis and for a specific amount and other Fees).
IF YOU ARE A TEAMLY USER WITH A MONTHLY OR ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION AND YOU HAVE PROVIDED US WITH A VALID CREDIT CARD NUMBER OR PAYPAL INFORMATION, EACH PAYMENT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY PROCESSED AT THE TIME OF YOUR DESIGNATED PAYMENT DATE (MONTHLY OR ANNUAL, AS APPLICABLE) AND WILL BE BILLED TO THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU PROVIDED TO US AT THE TIME OF YOUR ENROLLMENT. IF YOU WISH TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO TEAMLY, YOU MAY DO SO BY EMAILING [email protected] BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF YOUR NEXT SUBSCRIPTION MONTH OR YEAR AND YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AT THE END OF YOUR BILLING PERIOD.
If you are purchasing a subscription with a promotional one-time fee and no monthly fees, the following terms apply:
1. The one-time fee promotion grants you a paid web subscription to the Teamly Pro or Teamly Business product bundle selected and paid for by you the user. No additional monthly base subscription fees will be charged.
2. The offer is for the Teamly Pro license with the optional opportunity to purchase the Teamly Business license for an additional one-time fee. You can opt for just the Pro license, but the Business license is not a standalone purchase. You can only purchase the Business upgrade after getting the Pro license.
3. Optional in-software purchases and upgrades by the user incur additional fees indicated at the time of purchase, and those will be charged at the time of the optional purchase or upgrade and, as applicable, monthly thereafter. There is no obligation to make optional in-software purchases or upgrades in order to use your paid Pro or Business subscription.
4. Promotional subscriptions are subject to these Terms, the EULA and Privacy Notice. Unless you make an in-software purchase or upgrade that requires payment of a recurring monthly fee, this Section 8 relating to recurring monthly fees for such in-software purchase will not apply to you.
5. One-time fee subscriptions are in effect for as long as the software is available commercially, unless terminated earlier in accordance with these Terms or the EULA (e.g. if you violate these agreements).
Teamly reserves the right to immediately terminate a user’s account and/or service for any unpaid (in whole or part) period of the subscription (with or without notice). Termination of service in no way relieves or excuses the user from any obligation to pay outstanding charges or expenses. In the event Teamly starts collection processes of any type, you will be liable for all collection costs, including legal fees and expenses, as provided in Section 19 below.
In addition to any Fees, Teamly may also charge applicable sales, service, use, value added or other tax.
SECTION 9 – DELIVERY
Our Teamly software license provides a downloadable copy of the software. Unless otherwise stated on the Website at the time of purchase or download, if we elect to ship you a physical product, we reserve the right to add applicable shipping and handling fees to your order.
SECTION 10 – PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND PRICES AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE
Products, services, and prices are generally posted on the Website, but are subject to change. We reserve the right, without notice, to discontinue products or services or modify specifications and prices on products and services without incurring any obligation to you.
We take reasonable steps in an effort to ensure that the prices set forth on the Website are correct, and to accurately describe and display the items available on the Website. If the correct price of our product is higher than its stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
When ordering products or services, please note that we do not warrant that product or service descriptions are accurate, complete, current, or error-free, or that packaging or product features samples displayed on the Website will match the actual product that you receive with your purchase. All sales are deemed final except as provided in Section 6 of these Terms.
SECTION 11 – INTERACTIVE FEATURES
This Website may include a variety of features, such as bulletin boards, web logs, chat rooms, and email services, which allow feedback to us and real-time interaction between users, and other features which allow users to communicate with others. Responsibility for what is posted on bulletin boards, web logs, chat rooms, and other public posting areas on the Website, or sent via any email services on the Website, lies with each user - you alone are responsible for the material you post or send. We do not control the messages, information or files that you or others may provide through the Website, and we are not liable for any such messages.
Any user failing to comply with the Agreement may be expelled from and refused continued access to, the message boards, chats or other public forums in the future, and may have their software licenses terminated. Information and content posted within these public forums may be provided by our staff, our outside contributors, or by users not connected with us, some of whom may employ anonymous usernames. Under no circumstances will we, our affiliates, suppliers or agents (or their respective successors, purchasers or assigns) be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on information obtained through these forums. We have no obligation whatsoever to monitor any of the content or postings on the message boards, chat rooms or other public forums on the Website, or to review the work product you create using our software product. However, you agree that we have the absolute right to monitor the same at our sole discretion. In addition, we reserve the right to alter, edit, refuse to post or remove any postings or content or work product, in whole or in part, for any reason or no reason.
SECTION 12 – DISCLAIMER - YOUR INDIVIDUAL RESULTS WILL VARY
Every business and user is different, employing different strategic approaches and organizational structures, and offering different products and services. Therefore, individual results will vary from user to user. YOUR BUSINESS AND INDIVIDUAL RESULTS WILL VARY DEPENDING UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO YOUR BUSINESS OR PERSONAL USE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO YOUR BUSINESS MODEL, AND PRODUCT AND SERVICE OFFERINGS.
SECTION 13 – YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES IN RUNNING YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR DATA
You are solely and exclusively responsible for complying with any and all applicable laws and regulations in running your business and using our software product, including, but not limited to, all laws governing intellectual property, advertising and marketing claims, subscriptions, refunds, premium offers, tax laws, employment laws, data laws, privacy laws, consumer protection laws, and all additional laws applicable to your usage or business. We shall have no liability for your violation of any laws. You agree to indemnify us as set out in Section 19 below in the event that you and/or your business violates any law and a claim is threatened or asserted against us as a result.
You retain all right, title and interest in and to your and your business’ data in the form submitted to Teamly. Subject to these Terms, and solely to the extent necessary to provide the Teamly products to you, you grant us a worldwide, limited term license to access, use, process, copy, distribute, perform, export, and display your data. Solely to the extent that reformatting your data for display in a Teamly product constitutes a modification or derivative work, the foregoing license also includes the right to make modifications and derivative works. We may also access your accounts, end user accounts, and your Teamly products with end user permission in order to respond to your support requests.
Nothing in these Terms prevents us from disclosing your data to the extent required by law, subpoenas or court orders, but we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you where permitted to do so.

We reserve the right to correct grammatical and typing errors, to shorten testimonials prior to publication or use, and to review all testimonials prior to publication or use.

SECTION 16 – LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITIES
EXCEPT WHERE OTHERWISE INAPPLICABLE OR PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALLTEAMLY, LLC OR ANY OF ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS, TELECOMMUNICATIONS PROVIDERS, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS AND/OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, FEES, COSTS OR CLAIMS ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE PRIVACY NOTICE, THE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT, THE SERVICES OR PRODUCTS, AND/OR YOUR OR A THIRD PARTY’S USE OR ATTEMPTED USE OF THE WEBSITE OR ANY SOFTWARE, WORK PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR PRODUCT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER WE HAVE HAD NOTICE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, FEES, COSTS, OR CLAIMS. THIS INCLUDES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES OR PRODUCTS, OR ANY OTHER INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES. THIS APPLIES REGARDLESS OF THE MANNER IN WHICH DAMAGES ARE ALLEGEDLY CAUSED, AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY), WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE.
IN NO EVENT SHALL TEAMLY, LLC’S OR OUR AFFILIATES’, SUCCESSORS’ OR ASSIGNS’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU OR YOUR BUSINESS EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THREE (3) TIMES THE PAYMENTS PAID BY YOU FOR THE TEAMLY SOFTWARE OVER THE PRECEDING THREE (3) MONTH PERIOD BEFORE YOUR ALLEGED CLAIM AROSE, OR, IF YOU ONLY HAVE THE FREE VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE, THEN SUCH AGGREGATE LIMIT WILL BE USD$100.
SECTION 17 – DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS AND, AS APPLICABLE, YOUR BUSINESS’S RIGHTS. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT YOU OR YOUR BUSINESS MAY HAVE IN THE FUTURE MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. THE RIGHTS THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, MAY BE MORE LIMITED OR MAY NOT EXIST. YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF (LEAD OR OTHERWISE) OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES), AND MUST FOLLOW THESE TERMS AS A COURT WOULD.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Rules. In all other respects, the parties shall each pay their own additional fees, costs, and expenses, including, but not limited to, those for any attorneys, experts, documents, and witnesses.
The arbitrator shall follow the substantive law of the State of Ohio without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. Any award rendered shall include a confidential written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and we agree that disputes will only be arbitrated on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated, on a class wide, representative basis, or with any other arbitration(s) or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. You and we expressly waive any right to pursue any class or other representative action against each other.
Failure or any delay in enforcing this arbitration provision in connection with any particular claim will not constitute a waiver of any rights to require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other claims except that all claims must be brought within 1 year after the claim arises (the 1 year period includes the 120-day informal resolution procedures described above) or be legally barred.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, and only to the extent a court of competent jurisdiction determines that California law applies to our relationship with a California user in contravention of this Section 17 and Section 24 below (both of which provide that the relationship between us and all users is governed exclusively by the laws of the State of Ohio without regard to its conflicts of laws principles), then (a) a representative action for public injunctive relief pursuant to California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1750 et seq.), Unfair Competition Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 et seq.) and/or False Advertising Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17500 et seq.) must be arbitrated on a class basis, (b) in the event that the foregoing clause is deemed invalid or unenforceable, a representative action for public injunctive relief pursuant to California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1750 et seq.), Unfair Competition Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 et seq.) and/or False Advertising Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17500 et seq.) may be brought in the state or federal courts located in and covering Columbus, Ohio on a class basis, and (c) any claims other than for public injunctive relief must be arbitrated on an individual, non-class basis as otherwise set forth in this Section 17.
This arbitration provision sets forth the terms and conditions of our agreement to final and binding confidential arbitration and is governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended.
This provision survives termination of your account or relationship with us or the Website, bankruptcy, assignment, or transfer. If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply. If a portion of this arbitration provision (other than the class action waiver) is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE, AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH BINDING, FINAL, AND CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU PURCHASE, USE, OR ATTEMPT TO USE A SERVICE OR PRODUCT PURCHASED ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE (WHICHEVER COMES FIRST) BY WRITING TO US AT TEAMLY, LLC, ATTN: LEGAL DEPARTMENT, 6724 PERIMETER LOOP ROAD, #257, DUBLIN, OHIO 43017, WITH COPY BY E-MAIL TO [email protected]. FOR YOUR OPT-OUT TO BE EFFECTIVE, YOU MUST SUBMIT A SIGNED WRITTEN NOTICE IDENTIFYING ANY SERVICE OR PRODUCT YOU PURCHASED, USED OR ATTEMPTED TO USE WITHIN THE 30 DAYS AND THE DATE YOU FIRST PUCRHASED, USED, OR ATTMPETED TO USE THE SERVICE OR PRODUCT. IF MORE THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS HAVE PASSED, YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO OPT OUT OF THIS PROVISION AND YOU MUST PURSUE YOUR CLAIM THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.
SECTION 18 – OUR ADDITIONAL REMEDIES
In order to prevent or limit irreparable injury to us, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by you of the provisions of this Agreement, the End User License Agreement, or any infringement or threatened infringement by you of the intellectual property of Teamly or a third-party, we shall be entitled to seek a temporary restraining order and preliminary and permanent injunctions or other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction located in Columbus, Ohio restraining such breach, threatened breach, infringement, or threatened infringement. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as prohibiting us from pursuing in court any other remedies available to us for such breach, threatened breach, infringement, or threatened infringement, including the recovery of monetary damages from you and your business. You and your business, and we, hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of, and exclusive venue in, the courts of Columbus, Ohio for all such claims, and forever waive any challenge to said courts’ exclusive jurisdiction or venue.
