Terms of Use

Effective date: 25 May 2018

    Welcome to MeetNotes. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website(s), products, services, and applications (the “Services”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Services, please contact us at team@meetnotes.co.

      These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) are a binding contract between you and MeetNotes.co.(“MeetNotes,” “we” and “us”). You must agree to and accept all of the Terms, or you don’t have the right to use the Services. Your using the Services in any way means that you agree to all of these Terms, and these Terms will remain in effect while you use the Services. These Terms include the provisions in this document, as well as those in the Privacy Policy.

        Will these Terms ever change?

        We are continually improving our Services, so these Terms may need to change to be Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the www.meetnotes.co website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means.

          If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you accept all of the changes.

            Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.

              What about my privacy?

                                    Any information or content that you provide through the Services is your “Service Data.” Some Service Data (e.g. Meeting notes, Action Items) are viewable by other users. In order to display your Service Data on the Services, and to allow other users to view them (where applicable), you grant us certain rights in that Service Data. Please note that all of the following licenses are subject to our Privacy Policy to the extent they relate to Service Data that are also your personally-identifiable information.

This is a license only – your ownership in Service Data is not affected.

                                        If you share Service Data only in a manner that only certain specified users can view (for example, the user with whom you are scheduling a meeting) (“Limited Audience Service Data”), then you grant MeetNotes the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Limited Audience Service Data for the sole purpose of making that Limited Audience Service Data accessible to such other specified users, and providing the Services necessary to do so.

                                              Finally, you understand and agree that MeetNotes, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users (including you), may need to make changes to your Service Data to conform and adapt your Service Data to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.

                                                Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Services?

                                                          If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you agree that MeetNotes is under no obligation to become involved.If you have a dispute with one or more users, you discharge MeetNotes, its officers, representatives, agents, employees, and successors from claims, demands and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. IOn the off chance that you are a California occupant, you should defer California Civil Code Section 1542, which says - "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor."

                                                            Will MeetNotes ever change the Services?

                                                            We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice.

                                                              Does MeetNotes cost anything?

                                                                You’re free to stop using MeetNotes at any time, by contacting us at support@meetnotes.co; please refer to our Privacy Policy, as well as the licenses above, to understand how we treat information you provide to us after you have stopped using our Services.
