Links 

The Timebox Service may include hyperlinks to websites operated by third parties and permit you to use and purchase products, services (including payment processing), and content that is made available by third parties or through their websites, software or services.  The inclusion of any hyperlink to a website does not imply endorsement by Pepper of that website; the link may be for your reference and convenience only.  Pepper is not responsible for any of the activities of any third party provider in offering online or other services or for any conduct by any user in connection with third party services. Products, services, and content offered to you through hyperlinked websites are subject to the terms and conditions posted on those respective websites, and the data collection practices of hyperlinked websites will be governed by the respective privacy policies of those websites, not by ours. Following hyperlinks to any other off-site pages or other websites is at your own risk, and any claims you have with respect to products, services, or content accessed through linked websites are claims against third parties, not against Pepper. 

Unless otherwise prohibited under this Agreement or Additional Terms that govern your use of the Service, you are hereby licensed to create hyperlinks to the content on the Timebox Service, provided that you do not inaccurately describe the content that appears on the Service. We reserve the right to revoke this license generally, or your right to use specific links, at any time, and may normally break any hyperlink after 14 days. Under no circumstances may you “frame” the timeboxapp.com or pepper.com websites or any of their content or copy portions of those websites to a server, except as part of an Internet service provider’s incidental caching of pages. Each page of these websites displayed must appear in full (including all trademarks and branding), without any accompanying frame, border, margin, design, branding, trademark or promotional materials not originally displayed on the page within the website.

In accordance with the other provisions of this Agreement, we have the right to use, process, and make available to our service providers user contact, billing, content or use records, and related information insofar as that information is provided to us. 

Making User Content Available 

“User Content” is any information, graphics, text, images, software, sound files, video, communications, data, metadata, photographs, videos, clips, audio, compilations, works in any form or medium, technology (whether now known or later developed) and other materials that are submitted, posted, transmitted, modified, synched, or otherwise made available to the Service by users of the Service, whether solicited or unsolicited, whether automatically generated or manually provided. You are responsible for all User Content that you submit, post, transmit, modify, synch, or otherwise make available to the Service and any User Content originating from your user Account. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control any and all rights in and to the User Content that you submit, post, transmit, modify, synch, or otherwise make available and that public posting and use of those User Content by us will not infringe or violate the rights of any third party in any manner.

Pepper does not claim ownership of User Content and will not sell User Content without your express consent. However, by submitting, transmitting, posting, uploading, modifying or otherwise making available any User Content in connection with the Service, whether solicited or unsolicited, whether automatically generated or manually provided, you grant to Pepper and its service providers a royalty-free, fully paid, non-exclusive, sublicensable, transferable, irrevocable, perpetual, unrestricted, worldwide license to publish, transmit, perform, display, store, distribute, reproduce, re-arrange, modify, create derivative works from, and otherwise use any and all User Content for the purpose of administering this Service.  In addition, you acknowledge and agree that any ideas, concepts, techniques, procedures, methods, systems, designs, plans, charts, or other materials you transmit to Pepper in User Content may be used by us free of charge to administer this Service. 

In addition, you acknowledge that aspects of the Service may be “public,” and in addition to the license granted to us, your use of the Service may allow other users to have access to your User Content which they might copy, modify or distribute even without your express permission to engage in that conduct.  Further, you agree to evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any User Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of such User Content. 

Right to Remove Content or Block Access

Pepper or its designees, at Pepper’s discretion, without any obligation and without notice at any time, may screen, filter, restrict, block, move, refuse, disable access to, remove, or modify User Content that does not meet the prohibited conduct guidelines described in this Agreement or is otherwise objectionable.  Pepper or its designees, at Pepper’s discretion without any obligation and without notice, may disable or suppress content from any Account where the chosen username is deemed to be offensive or inappropriate, or is a violation of trademark or copyright. Pepper may also block your access to the Service in the event that (a) you breach this Agreement; (b) we are unable to verify or authenticate information you provide to Pepper; (c) we believe that your actions may cause financial loss or legal liability for you, Timebox users or us; or (d) we believe that blocking access is a reasonable business practice in the circumstances. 

We do not guarantee that any content or information you share or access will not be removed, damaged, corrupted, lost, or unavailable. We recommend that you back up any User Content that you store or access using the Timebox Service. You also agree that any information, content, and software that you download on a particular device or piece of hardware may not be available to you on other devices or hardware. If you purchase any content storage features through the Timebox Service, Pepper will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the content you store using those features remain available and uncorrupted, but we still cannot guarantee that removal, damage, corruption, loss or unavailability will never occur.  Users who purchase back up storage are subject to all the terms of this Agreement, including the disclaimers above.

Attention: Legal Notice

Notice Regarding Independent Professional Advice

You are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws in connection with your access and use of the Service.  Any information that is made available to you in connection with the Service should not be considered legal or financial advice. Pepper is not acting as your lawyer or financial advisor. Your conduct in connection with the Service, including any decisions you make regarding content or shipment of artifacts, may have implications under state and federal laws of the United States or laws of other jurisdictions, including export regulations. If you have questions about the legal and financial implications of your conduct, you should seek independent professional advice in light of your particular circumstances. 

Termination; Limitations on Access to the Service

You may use the Service if and when it is available. Features may be unavailable or the experience may not be the same for every user at all times. Pepper does not guarantee availability of any aspect of the Service or any particular feature. A particular Service or feature may be a pre-release version and may not work correctly or in the way a final version might work. We may significantly change the final version or decide not to release it.  We reserve the right to change, remove, delete, restrict or block access to, or stop providing all or any part of the Service (including reducing available storage capacity) at any time without notice. 

You agree that we may terminate your use of the Service if we reasonably believe that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement, or violated the rights of Pepper or any third party, or for any other reason with or without notice to you. 

You agree that, at any time and from time to time, temporarily or permanently, with or without notice, in whole or in part, we may modify or discontinue the Service, including modifying or removing any of the content contained in the Service; modifying or removing any feature of the Service; limiting the Service’s availability to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction; charging, modifying or waiving any fees in connection with the Service; and/or offering opportunities to some or all users of the Service. You agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party as a result of such modification or discontinuation.

Payment terms related to Products and features of the Service

We may charge fees for access or use of certain aspects of the Service and may also make available products, content, and services that you may choose to purchase, including ebooks, printed and etched products.  All charges will be charged in U.S. dollars.  Prices stated exclude all taxes and third party charges (e.g., Internet access, data charges), unless stated otherwise.  You are responsible for any taxes and for all other charges (e.g., third party charges).  Pepper may begin charging for products, content, and services that it currently offers for free and may change prices at any time.

If you make a purchase or access or sign up for any paid feature of the Timebox Service, you authorize any third party that processes payments on our behalf to use the payment method you enter in connection with that third party service and subject to its terms.   We may bill you: (a) in advance, (b) at the time of purchase or sign up; (c) shortly after purchase or sign-up; or (d) on a recurring basis for subscriptions. Any fees associated with access or use of features of the Timebox Service may be one-time or recurring.   If you enroll in a fee-based feature of the Timebox Service, you agree that we or our desginees may automatically renew it and charge you for any renewal term if you do not un-enroll from that feature.  

For any fee-based feature of the Service, you agree to provide accurate contact and billing information and to update it so that it remains accurate.  If your billing information is not accurate or you change your payment method and our designees cannot process a payment, we may cancel the purchase or subscription and terminate your access to that feature of the Service.  If you change your payment method or direct Pepper to cancel a service, your notice to Pepper will not affect charges Pepper submits before it reasonably could act on your request.  Nothing in this Agreement prevents third party payment processors from retaining your credit card or other payment information to facilitate payment processing, including in connection with recurring charges and for future purchases.  You acknowledge such retention and agree to it unless you specifically preclude such retention through the payment options available through the third party payment processor. If your Account is closed or suspended for any reason, we may charge you for any fees, costs, surcharges, or debts (if any) pending on your Account and may prohibit you from reinstating your Account or opening a new Account until they have been paid. Unless prohibited by applicable law, we may assess a late charge if you do not pay on time. You must pay for all reasonable costs we incur to collect any past due amounts, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other legal fees and costs. Pepper may also suspend or cancel your subscription or order and your access to the Service if you fail to pay in full on time. 

If you wish to cancel a feature of the Timebox Service and cancellation instructions are not provided at the time of registration or on the http://www.pepper.com or http://www.timeboxapp.com websites, contact customerservice@pepper.com for assistance.  It may not be possible to cancel certain features of the Service separately from cancelling the entire Service. Some aspects of the Service may require you to pay cancellation charges as stated in the materials describing the offer. Your cancellation of the Service will not alter your obligation to pay any charges made through your Account. If you cancel your Account, you may lose immediately and permanently any coupons, vouchers, credits, or other items of value including User Content, which were stored in connection with your account. 

If you do not agree to a price change for a feature or service associated with the Service, you must cancel that feature or service and stop using it.   Your continued use of that feature or service after notice and the effective date of the price change will constitute your acceptance of the change and renewal of that feature or service for the next period.  When you sign up for a paid feature or service of the Service, you agree that Pepper begins providing you that feature or service immediately (including by granting you the right to access and view content if applicable) and that you will not be entitled to a cancellation or “cooling off” period, unless applicable law requires a cooling off period despite your waiver and even when access to a feature starts right away.  

General Provisions 

This Agreement is governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Washington, without regard to conflict of law principles.  You expressly agree that exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute with Pepper or in any way relating to your use of the Service (“Legal Action”), resides in the courts of King County in the State of Washington. You further agree and expressly consent to the exercise of personal jurisdiction in the courts of King County in the State of Washington in connection with any such dispute. Any Legal Action that is subject to the jurisdiction of federal courts shall be instituted in a federal court in the Western District of Washington.

If a court of competent jurisdiction holds any term, covenant or restriction of this Agreement to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, the remaining terms, covenants and restrictions will remain in full force and effect and will in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated. 

The headings titles in this Agreement are provided solely for convenience and have no legal or contractual significance.

No waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective unless it is in a signed writing, and no waiver will constitute a waiver of any other provision(s) or of the same provision on another occasion. 

Pepper will not be liable in any amount for failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement if such failure is caused by the occurrence of any unforeseen contingency beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, Internet outages, communications outages, fire, flood, or war.
