The websites and the Obie bot are entirely owned by Tasytt Inc., a company with its offices located in Ontario, Canada.
Website and Bot Access
You can use the website or bot as long as:
- It's for personal use
- You don't copy anything
- You don't alter anything maliciously
You might have to create an account to use the websites or the bot. Keep your password secure and don't hack into other people's accounts. Don't use fake names or emails. If you get hacked, let us know right away because you are responsible for any activity coming from your account. The Company won't be held responsible for your losses, but you could be held responsible for any losses of the Company.
Don't attack our servers please. We might shut your account down.
Again, don't attack our servers please. Google is allowed to crawl our public pages, but if we notice suspicious activity, we might shut your account down.
For the last time, don't attack our servers. Please! Just to be clear, we mean no malicious code or content or other hacks/attacks.
If you sign up for any paid plan, make sure you enter the correct credit card information and keep it updated. We'll bill you in advance for the term you selected. Your information will be stored with a third-party that is equipped to store and encrypt credit card information.
If you have any issues with charges, let us know within 60 days of the charge. All payments are non-refundable. We can also change our prices in the future, and we'll notify you of that at least 30 days prior to the change. If we don't hear from you and you keep using the websites or the bot, we assume you accept the price changes. If your payment is late, the amount due will increase by 1.5% per month of the outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus any collection expenses. You're also responsible for any taxes on the paid plan.
Like everything else in the world, you can access the websites and the bot on your mobile device. Don't text and drive. Don't use the websites or the bot while operating any kind of vehicle. Keep your eyes on the road! We won't be held responsible for any unlawful use of our solutions.
Intellectual Property Rights
Pretty simple: all of the Company's content belongs to the Company. Any Company content is provided AS IS for your information only, so don't copy it or try to break any copy-protection implemented.
Also pretty simple: your content belongs to you. We do our best to protect you but can't guarantee any confidentiality in respect to your content.
You're responsible for your content. So make sure:
- You own the content
- You have written consent to use content that you don't own
If you upload any content for "public use", we may use it to promote the websites or the bot. We'll let you know ahead of time if we want to use your content (even though we don't have to), and respect your wishes if you refuse. We're nice like that.
In addition to above, if we use your content publically, that means any users of the websites or the bot will be able to see it (but not copy it).
For User Submissions, you also agree that you won't:
- Submit any copyrighted material
- Publish lies or misleadings that could harm us or any third-parties
- Submit any illegal, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offence, give rise to rioting, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate
- Submit material that includes images of minors unless you are the mother, father, or duly appointed guardian of such minors or have permission from the minor's lawful parents or guardians to post images of the minors
- Post ads or spam of other businesses
- Pretend to be another person
We don't endorse any User Submission or opinion and we won't be held liable for any User Submission. If we're notified of any copyright infringement, we'll remove the content in question.
We also have the right to decide what is "appropriate". We're open-minded folks but there's some obvious lines that can't be crossed. If we find something we deem inappropriate, we'll remove it, and possible remove your account.
You allow us to send cease-and-desist letters to infringing parties who use your content without authorization, unless you tell us it's ok. If we have to sue the infringing party, you're entitled to 0% of the funds we receive. This power will continue for as long as we use your content.
When you use the websites or the bot, you may see content that was uploaded by others. We aren't held responsible if you find that content offsensive, and you waive any legal rights against us related to your objection of said content.
When submitting content, you waive all rights in connection with the content, and leave it up to us whether we use your name in association with the content. We're reasonable though so we will let you know when we use your content and be respectful of your wishes. We'd never do anything to tarnish our name or your name.
Third Party Websites
The websites or the bot might have links to third-party websites that aren't owned by us, so we assume no responsibility for anything related to third-party websites.
The websites or the bot might have some content templates as an example. Don't use these as legally binding documents, they are examples only. We assume no responsibility, and you agree not to hold us responsible, if you choose to use them as legal documents.
Warranty and Indemnity
You agree to use our services at your own risk, and we don't guarantee that you won't encounter bugs (although we try). If the site is compromised, you may encounter viruses or similar problems, and we won't be held responsible for damage caused. We also don't officially endorse any third-party services.
Your use of the site is your responsibility. Any legal issues as a result of using the websites, the bot, or viewing content, will exclude us in every way.
You won't hold us responsible for any damages or costs related to:
- Your use of and access to the Website or the Bot
- Your violation of any third party right, including copyright, property, or privacy rights
- Any claim that one of your User Submissions caused damage to a third party
The above will hold true until the end of time.
Limitation of Liability
Once again, by using the websites or the bot, you agree that we will not be held responsible for any damages you incur, whether that is lost profits, lost business, lost data, hurt feelings, or being offended... or anything, really.
