Effective Date: May 2019
You agree that by registering an account on our website, accessing or using our services (described below), that you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Alpha Co. (even if you are using our services on behalf of a company entity). If you do not agree to this legally bindable contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), please do not register in any sort of fashion and do not access or otherwise use any of our services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account & no longer accessing/using our services.
This Contract applies to Alpha Co, our affiliates, apps, communications & other services that state that they are offered under this Contract (“services”), including the offsite collection of data for those services, such as our ads. Registered users of our services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Contract applies to both Members and Visitors.
You are entering into this Contract with Alpha Co. (“we”, “us”, "our", "Alpha Co.").
We are only a local renovation company & have no use/worry on international policies.
To use the services, you agree that:
you must be the “Minimum Age” or older;
you will only have one Alpha account, which must be in your real name;
you are not already restricted by Alpha Co. from using the services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of other persons under the age of 16.
“Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for Alpha Co. to lawfully provide the services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.
Members are account holders.
As a Member you agree to:
try to choose a strong & secure password;
keep your password secure/confidential;
not transfer any part of your account
follow the law & our policies. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or you take action to report abuse/misuse.
As between you & others (including your employer), your account belongs to you. However, if the services were purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. Recruiter seat bought by your employer), the party paying for such service has the right to control, access to and get reports on your use of such paid service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.
You’ll honor your payment obligations by authorizing us to store your personal information where applicable. You understand that there may be fees & taxes that are added to our prices.
If you buy any of our paid services (“Premium Services”), you agree to pay us the applicable fees & taxes or to additional terms specific to the paid services. Failure to pay these fees will result in the termination of your paid services & an e-mail will be sent to you in pursuit to resolution.
Also, you agree that:
Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).
We may store & continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your services & to use to pay other services you may buy.
All of your purchases of services are subject to Alpha Co.'s refund policy.
We may calculate taxes payable by you based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase.
You can get a copy of your invoice through your e-mail account. We don't guarantee refunds.
Notices & Messages
You’re okay with us providing notices & messages to you through our websites, apps and contact information. If your contact information is out of date, you may miss out on important notices. Be sure to keep your contact information up to date so we can connect with you for community events if you wish to be contacted.
You agree that we will provide notices & messages to you in the following ways:
within the service, or
sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number, physical address). You agree to keep your contact information up to date as best you can or when you contact us.
When you share information on our services, others can see, copy and use that information (e.g., FaceBook comment).
Our services allow messaging & sharing of information in many ways, such as your profile, links to news articles, job postings, e-mails and websites. Information & content that you share or post may be seen by other Members, Visitors or others (including off of the services & Alpha Co. Staff). Where we have made settings available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g., message content to your addressees, sharing content only to FaceBook connections, restricting your profile visibility from search engines or opting out of e-mail notifications).
For job searching activities, we default to not notifying your connections network or the public. So if you apply for a job through our service or opt to signal that you are interested in a job, our default is to share it only with the job poster.
We are not obligated to publish any information or content to our service & can remove it in our sole discretion, with or without notice.
A worldwide, transferable & sublicensable right to use, copy, distribute, modify, process and publish information and content that you provide through our services & the services of others, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you/others. These rights are limited in the following ways:
You can end this license for specific content by deleting such content from the services or generally by closing your account, except (a) to the extent you shared it with others as part of the service and they copied, re-shared it or stored it and (b) for the reasonable time it takes to remove from backup & other systems.
We will get your consent if we want to give others the right to publish your content beyond the services. However if you choose to share your post as "public", we will enable a feature that allows other Members to embed that public post onto third-party services, and we enable search engines to make that public content locatable though their services.
While we may edit/make format changes to your content (such as translating it, modifying the size, layout, file type or removing metadata), we will not modify the meaning of your expression.
Because you own your content & information and we only have non-exclusive rights to it, you may choose to make it available to others, including under the terms of a Creative Commons license.
By submitting suggestions or other feedback regarding our services to Alpha Co, you agree that Alpha Co. can use and share (but does not have to) such feedback for any purpose without compensation to you.
You understand to only apply information & content that you have the right to share and that your Alpha Account will be truthful to the best of your knowledge.
You are in compliance to only provide content/information that does not violate the law nor anyone’s rights (including intellectual property rights). You also agree that your profile information will be truthful. Alpha Co. may be required by law to remove certain information or content.
We may change, suspend/end any service or change & modify prices prospectively in our discretion. To the extent allowed under law, these changes may be effective upon acknowledgement provided to you.
