PLEASE READ THESE CUSTOMER TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY.
This is a contract between you (the Customer) and us (360Alumni). It describes the services we will provide to you, how we will work together, and other aspects of our business relationship. It is a legal document so some of the language is necessarily “legalese” but we have tried to make it as readable as possible. These terms are so important though that we cannot provide these services unless you agree to them. By using the Subscription Service or receiving the Consulting Services, you are agreeing to these terms.
We periodically update these terms and if you subscribe to our product, we will let you know when we do via email.
“Agreement” means these Customer Terms of Service and all materials referred or linked to in here.
“Billing Period” means the period for which you agree to prepay fees under an Order Form, which will be the same as or shorter than the Subscription Term. For example, if you subscribe to the Subscription Service for a one (1) year Initial Subscription Term, with a twelve (12) month upfront payment, the Billing Period will be twelve (12) months.
“Confidential Information” means all information provided by you or us (“Discloser”) to the other (“Receiver”), whether orally or in writing that is designated as confidential. Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Discloser or (ii) was known to the Receiver before receipt from the Discloser.
“Consulting Services” means the professional services provided to you by us, which may include training services, installation, integration or other consulting services.
“Customer Materials” means all materials that you provide or post, upload, input or submit for public display through the Subscription Service.
“Order Form” or “Order” means the 360Alumni-approved proposal, contract or online subscription process by which you agree to subscribe to the Subscription Service and purchase Consulting Services. Most Orders are completed through direct purchase from a 360Alumni representative. The purchase form may be referred to as a “Statement of Work” if you are purchasing only Consulting Services.
“Subscription Fee” means the amount you pay for the Subscription Service.
“Subscription Term” means the Initial Subscription Term and all Renewal Subscription Terms.
“Third-Party Products” means embedded or non-embedded products and professional services that are provided by third parties which interoperate with or are used in connection with the Subscription Service. These products and services include non-360Alumni apps available from, for example, our alumni map, the login page, the email marketing features, and any payment processing pages.
“Users” means your constituents, employees, representatives, consultants, contractors or agents who are authorized to use the Subscription Service and have unique user identifications and passwords for the Subscription Service.
“You”, “your” or “Customer” means the person or entity using the Subscription Service or receiving the Consulting Services and identified in the applicable billing statement, online subscription process, Order Form or Statement of Work as the customer.
2. The Subscription Service
a. Access. During the Subscription Term, we will provide you access to use the Subscription Service as described in this Agreement.
b. Pricing. If we make modifications to our Pricing that would negatively impact you, these modifications will not apply to you until the start of your next Renewal Subscription Term. On renewal, the current product usage limits on our Pricing Page will apply to your subscription, unless you and we otherwise agree.
c. Refunds. 360Alumni will refund any donation, event ticket sale, or other e-commerce transaction made by a user or administrator in the platform up to 120 days later. After 120 days, refunds will be issued directly to the client by ACH or check only in the case of a 360Alumni error.
d. Modifications. We modify the Subscription Service from time to time, including by adding or deleting features and functions, in an effort to improve your experience. But we will not make changes to the Subscription Service that materially reduce the functionality of the Subscription Service provided to you during the Subscription Term. We might provide some or all elements of the Subscription Service through third party service providers.
e. Additional Features. You may subscribe to additional features of the Subscription Service by agreeing to a new Order Form.
3. Customer Support
Support is included in your Subscription Fee. Phone support for the Subscription Service is available 8AM to 8PM Eastern Time (GMT-5), Monday through Friday, excluding US national holidays. We accept email and webform support questions 24 Hours per Day x 7 Days per Week at http://360alumni.com/talk-to-360alumni. Responses are not guaranteed outside of phone support hours. We attempt to respond to webform support questions within one business day; in practice, our responses are generally even faster. We do not promise or guarantee any specific response time.
4. Consulting Services
You may purchase Consulting Services through an Order Form or Statement of Work. Fees for these Consulting Services are in addition to your Subscription Fee. If you purchase Consulting Services that recur, they will be considered part of your subscription and will renew in accordance with the ‘Renewal Subscription Term’ section below. Unless otherwise agreed, all Consulting Services are performed remotely.
For Consulting Services performed on-site, you will reimburse us our reasonable cost for all expenses incurred in connection with the Consulting Services. Any invoices or other requests for reimbursements will be due and payable within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice.
If there are a specific number of hours included in the Consulting Services purchased, those hours will expire as indicated in the applicable description, which expiration period will commence upon purchase (the “Expiration Period”). If there are deliverables included in the Consulting Services purchased, it is estimated that those deliverables will be completed within the time period indicated as the delivery period in the applicable description, which delivery period will commence upon purchase (the “Delivery Period”). If the Consulting Services provided are not complete at the end of the Delivery Period due to your failure to make the necessary resources available to us or to perform your obligations, such Consulting Services will be deemed to be complete at the end of the Delivery Period. If the Consulting Services provided are not complete at the end of the Delivery Period due to our failure to make the necessary resources available to you or to perform our obligations, the Delivery Period will be extended to allow us to complete such Consulting Services.
We might provide some or all elements of the Consulting Services through third party service providers. Consulting Services are non-cancellable and all fees for Consulting Services are non-refundable.
5. Subscription Term and Renewal
a. Initial Subscription Term. Unless otherwise noted, agreement shall commence upon the date of signing and expire at the end of the period selected during the subscription process (“Initial Subscription Term”).
b. Renewal Subscription Term. Unless one of us gives the other written notice that it does not intend to renew the subscription, this Agreement will automatically renew for the shorter of the Initial Subscription Term or one year (“Renewal Subscription Term”). Written notice of non-renewal must be sent no more than ninety (90) days but no less than forty-five (45) days in advance of the end of the Subscription Term, unless otherwise set forth in your Order Form. The Renewal Subscription Term will be on the current terms and conditions of this Agreement, and subject to the renewal pricing provided for in your Order Form or, if not specified in the Order Form, on our standard pricing. Should you decide not to renew, you may send the notice of non-renewal by email to email@example.com.
