Quote Roller Inc. (“Quote Roller” “we”, “us” and terms of similar meaning) provides this web site and the services provided by or through this website to you subject to these terms and conditions of use (these “Terms”).
In these terms we call this website, any successor websites (together, the “Site”) and we call all the software we provide the “Application”. We refer to the services provided by the Application as the “Services”. The Application and Services includes the Quote Roller Application Programmer Interface (the “API”), your use of the API, and the use of the API by third parties authorized through your Quote Roller account to access, change, delete or add to your User Content (as defined below) through the API.
Please read these Terms carefully before using the Services. By accessing the Application or using the Services you agree to be legally bound by these Terms and all terms, policies and guidelines incorporated by reference in these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms in their entirety, you may not use the Services.
The Services are not intended to be used by children. You must be at least of the age of majority in your location to use the Services.
In these Terms, our customers and their team members to whom they give “Team” access to their Quote Roller account are called “Subscribers”, and our customers’ customers who use the Services (for example, to view Subscribers’ proposals) are called “Customers”. In these Terms users of the Services, whether they are Subscribers, Customers, members of the Quote Roller forum, people who post comments on the Quote Roller blog, or casual browsers of the Site, are called “Users”.
Quote Roller reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms, or any policy or guideline applicable to the Services, at any time and at its sole discretion. If you do not agree with the changes, you can cancel your account with us without further obligation, except for any amount due for the balance of the billing period in which you cancel your account per our Billing & Refund Policy. Unless otherwise specified, any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions on the Site, and your continued use of the Services after such time will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. You should from time to time review the Terms and any policies and documents incorporated in them to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Services. If you do not agree to any amended Terms, you must stop using the Services. If you have any questions about the Terms, please contact our support department.
The Services are for your own use only. You may not resell, lease or provide them in any other way to anyone else, except as expressly permitted through the Application.
2. Registration Data; Account Security
If you register for an account on the Services, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Services (“Registration Data”); (b) maintain the security of your password and your API key; (c) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you provide to Quote Roller, and to keep it accurate, current and complete; and (d) accept all risks of unauthorized access to the Registration Data and any other information you provide to Quote Roller. You are responsible for all activity on your Quote Roller account, and for all charges incurred by your use of the Application and/or Services.
3. Fees; Charges; Taxes
Fees and any other charges for access to the Application are described on the Site. They may change from time to time. If we change them, we will give you at least 30 days’ notice. If they do change, your continued access to the Application, as the case may be, after the change indicates your agreement with the new fees and charges after the effective date of the change. Any change to fees and other charges will not be applicable to the billing period in which the change occurs.
You are responsible for all taxes applicable to the fees and charges in any applicable jurisdiction.
4. Ownership, Copyright and Trademarks
In these Terms the content available through the Services, including all information, data, logos, marks, designs, graphics, pictures, sound files, other files, and their selection and arrangement, is called “Content”. Content provided by Users, whether they are Subscribers, Customers or other Users, is called “User Content”. For example, data that a Subscriber adds to the Application about its Customers is User Content of that Subscriber, data about its payments that a Customer provides to the Application is User Content of that Customer, and Content that a User enters into the Quote Roller forum or enters as a comment on the Quote Roller blog is User Content of the User.
User Content is the Subscriber’s property. Quote Roller’ only right to User Content is the limited licenses to it granted in these Terms. Those licenses are described in Section 5 and Section 17 of these Terms.
Other than the User Content, the Services, all Content and all software available on the Services or used to create and operate the Services is the property of Quote Roller or its licensors, and is protected by US and international copyright laws, and all rights to the Services, such Content and such software are expressly reserved. All trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned in the Services are the property of their respective owners. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, and supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by Quote Roller.
Your User Content is your responsibility. We have no responsibility or liability for it, or for any loss or damage your User Content may cause to you or other people. Although we have no obligation to do so, we have the absolute discretion to remove, screen or edit without notice any User Content posted or stored on the Services, and we may do this at any time and for any reason. You are solely responsible for maintaining copies of and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Services. If you authorize third parties to access your User Content through the Services, including through the API, you agree that we are permitted to provide to them the User Content, and also agree that we have no responsibility or liability for their use of such User Content.
5. Your Limited License of Your User Content to Quote Roller
We do not claim any ownership interest in your User Content, but we do need the right to use your User Content to the extent necessary to operate the Site and provide the Services, now and in the future. For example, if you leave comments on the Quote Roller blog or posts on the Quote Roller forum, we need your license to display that User Content on the Services, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to our other Users so that they can view that User Content. If you are a Subscriber and enter proposal data in relation to a Customer and configure your account to display proposal data to your Customers, we need your license to that User Content to use it in the operation of the Services, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to your Customers for that purpose.
Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to or through the Services, you (a) grant Quote Roller and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from such User Content, in the manner in and for the purposes for which the Services from time to time use such User Content; (b) represent and warrant that (i) you own and control all of the rights to the User Content that you post or otherwise distribute, or you otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Services; and (ii) the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.
If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to sublicense such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Services, as described in Section 5 of these Terms.
These licenses from you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. They are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Services. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these licenses to any successor operator of the Services. Our rights to “modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from” are necessary because the normal operation of the Services does this to your User Content when it processes it for use in the Services.
6. Our Limited License of Content to You
Quote Roller grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable license to access the Services and to view, copy and print the portions of the Content available to you through the Services. Such license is subject to these Terms, and specifically conditioned upon the following: (i) you may only view, copy and print such portions of the Content for your own use; (ii) you may not modify or otherwise make derivative works of the Content, or reproduce, distribute or display the Content (except for page cacheing) except as expressly permitted in these Terms; (iii) you may not remove or modify any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices that have been placed in the Content; (iv) you may not use any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods; and (v) you may not use the Services or the Content other than for their intended purpose.
Except as expressly permitted above, any use of any portion of the Content without the prior written permission of its owner is strictly prohibited and will terminate the license granted in this Section, this Agreement and your account with us. Any such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws. Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in these Terms may be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise. The license in this Section is revocable by Quote Roller at any time.
You represent and warrant that your use of the Services and the Content will be consistent with this license and will not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties, or violate any applicable law.
To request permission for uses of Content not included in this license, you may contact Quote Roller at the address set out at the bottom of these Terms.
7. Using the Quote Roller API
This Section contains terms and conditions applicable to your use of the Quote Roller API, whether you are a Subscriber or other User, including a developer or operator of a website or application (such a website or application, a “Quote Roller API Implementation”, and the developer or operator, an “API Developer”) who wishes to use the Quote Roller API for the purpose of including Content in your Quote Roller API Implementation. If you are a Subscriber and you procure a third-party to develop a Quote Roller API Implementation for you, this Section applies to your and their use of the Quote Roller API, and you are responsible for their compliance with this Section to the same extent as though you were developing the Quote Roller API Implementation yourself.
If you are an API Developer and not otherwise a User, your use of the Quote Roller API constitutes your agreement to these Terms. We may change these Terms without notice to you by posting new Terms on the Site. It is your responsibility to review the Site for changes to the Terms. If you use the Services after new Terms are posted, your use of the Services constitutes your agreement to the new Terms. If you do not wish to be bound by the new Terms, you must immediately cease your use of the Services.
If you are an API Developer and not otherwise a Subscriber or other User of the Services, the license set forth in this Section applies to your use of the Quote Roller API, and the license set forth in Section 6 does not apply to your use of the Quote Roller API. If you are also a Subscriber or other User, the license set forth in Section 6 applies to your use of Content other than the Quote Roller API, and this Section applies to your use of the Quote Roller API.
Your use of the Quote Roller API is also subject to the following restrictions. You may not:
Interfere or attempt to interfere in any manner with the proper workings of the Quote Roller API, or create or distribute any Quote Roller API Implementation that adversely affects the functionality or performance of the Services or adversely impacts the behavior of other applications using the Quote Roller API;
Misrepresent your identity or intentions when communicating with us in relation to the Quote Roller API, use the developer credentials licensed to a different individual or entity, allow your credentials to be used by others, or mask your usage of the Quote Roller API;
Use the Quote Roller API in association with, or as a component of, any website that in the sole discretion of Quote Roller is determined to be obscene or otherwise inappropriate;
Use the Quote Roller API for any application that constitutes, promotes or is used in connection with malware, spyware, adware, other malicious programs or code;
Use the Quote Roller API in any manner or for any purpose that violates any law or regulation, any right of any person, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, rights of privacy, or rights of personality;
Replicate, in whole or in part, the “look and feel” of Quote Roller with your Quote Roller API Implementation;
Include in your Quote Roller API Implementation a combination of visual, design, or functional elements that could reasonably be expected to cause confusion between Quote Roller and your Quote Roller API Implementation among users;
Disparage or otherwise negatively represent Quote Roller in your Quote Roller API Implementation;
Use the Quote Roller API for any application that attempts to replace or replicate the essential user experience or functionality of the Service;
Reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise attempt to extract the source code of the Application or the Services or any part thereof;
Circumvent or render ineffective any IP address-based functionality or restriction imposed by the Services;
Circumvent technological measures to prevent direct database access, nor manufacture tools or products to that effect;
Build conversion functionality that converts Content from the Service to a competing product or service; or at any time you are operating your Quote Roller API Implementation, solicit, interfere with or endeavour to entice away from us any of our Subscribers.
You agree to carefully monitor your use of the Quote Roller API and ensure that it remains within reasonable operational limits for both your own server capacity and for ours. You acknowledge and agree that we may impose or adjust the limit on the number of transactions you may send or receive through the Service; we may set such fixed upper limits at any time, at our discretion.
Quote Roller has no responsibility to any person for any use or misuse of any Content obtained through the Quote Roller API. If you are a Subscriber, you should consider carefully whether you wish to give an API Developer access to your Content through the Quote Roller API. If you wish to revoke access to your Content through the Quote Roller API, you should change your Quote Roller API key or revoke authorization of the Quote Roller API Implementation to your Content. Please contact our support department if you want assistance doing this.
8. Use of Interactive Areas and the Services
The Services may include discussion forums, bulletin boards, review services or other forums in which you or third parties may post reviews or other content, messages, materials or other items on the Services (“Interactive Areas”). If Quote Roller provides such Interactive Areas, you are solely responsible for your use of such Interactive Areas and use them at your own risk. User Content submitted to any public area of the Services will be considered non-confidential. You agree not to post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create or otherwise publish through the Services any of the following:
Any message, data, information, text, music, sound, photos, graphics, code or other material that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable;
Content that would constitute, encourage or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law;
Content that may infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual or proprietary right of any party;
Content that impersonates any person or entity or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity;
Unsolicited promotions, political campaigning, advertising or solicitations;
Private information of any third party, including, without limitation, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and credit card numbers, unless that third party has expressly consented to such use;
Viruses, corrupted data or other harmful, disruptive or destructive files;
Content that is unrelated to the topic of the Interactive Area(s) in which such Content is posted; or
Content that, in the sole judgment of Quote Roller, is objectionable or which restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying the Interactive Areas or the Services, or which may expose Quote Roller or its affiliates or its users to any harm or liability of any type.
Finally, Quote Roller has a “zero-tolerance” policy towards SPAM: you may not use the Interactive Areas or the Services generally to send commercial or other messages to any third-party if those messages are not solicited, authorized or welcomed by the third-party, and in your use of the Services you must comply with all applicable laws, including laws that apply in any jurisdiction to SPAM and marketing practices, and with any applicable marketing association guidelines on ethical marketing practices.
Any use of the Interactive Areas or other portions of the Services in violation of the foregoing violates these Terms and may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to use the Interactive Areas and/or the Services and of your ability to access the Application.
9. Providing a Reliable and Secure Service
If you have spent any time reviewing the Services, you will hopefully have noticed that we take reliability and security seriously. We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our service operates all the time, and that it is a secure environment for your data. We use what we believe to be “best-of-class” hosting services and security technologies and services that we believe provide you with a secure and safe environment. More information about these services and technologies is available on the Site.
For example, to safeguard credit card information, Quote Roller encrypts all stored credit card numbers, uses restrictive firewalls to protect stored data and uses 256 bit SSL certificates to encrypt data transferred between you and the Services.
However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable, the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, Internet intermediaries, your Internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use Quote Roller, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability.
Finally, Quote Roller provides the Quote Roller API to facilitate the use of the Services with other services on the Internet. If a third party is authorized through your Quote Roller account to have access to your User Content through the Quote Roller API, we cannot control and are not responsible or liable for the third party’s use of your User Content.
10. No Responsibility for Third-Party Material
The Site may contain links to third-party Web sites (“Third-Party Sites”) and third-party content (“Third-Party Content”) as a service to those interested in this information, payment processors and other payment intermediaries that you may use in connection with your use of the Services. You use links to Third-Party Sites and any Third-Party Content or service provided there, at your own risk.
Quote Roller makes no claim or representation regarding Third-Party Content or Third-Party Sites, and provides them or links to them only as a convenience. Inclusion in the Services of a link to a Third-Party Site or Third-Party Content does not imply Quote Roller’ endorsement, adoption or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such Third-Party Site or Third-Party Content. Quote Roller accepts no responsibility for reviewing changes or updates to, or the quality, content, policies, nature or reliability of, Third-Party Content, Third-Party Sites, or Web sites linking to the Services. When you leave the Services, our terms and policies no longer govern. You should review applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any Third-Party Site, and should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
11. Advertisements and Promotions
Quote Roller may run advertisements and promotions from third parties on the Services. Your business dealings or correspondence with, or participation in promotions of, advertisers other than Quote Roller, and any terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party. Quote Roller is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of third-party advertisers on the Services.
12. Warranty Disclaimer
The Site, the Content, the Services are provided to you on an “as is” basis without warranties from Quote Roller of any kind, either express or implied. Quote Roller expressly disclaims all other warranties, express or implied, including without limitation implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. Quote Roller does not represent or warrant that Site, the Content, or the Services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free.
While Quote Roller attempts to make your access to and use of the Services safe, Quote Roller does not represent or warrant that the Site, the Content, or the Services are free of viruses or other harmful components.
13. Limitation of Liability; Indemnity
You waive and shall not assert any claims or allegations of any nature whatsoever against Quote Roller, its affiliates or subsidiaries, their sponsors, contractors, advertisers, vendors or other partners, any of their successors or assigns, or any of their respective officers, directors, agents or employees (collectively, the “Released Parties”) arising out of or in any way relating to your use of the Site, the Content, or the Services, including, without limitation, any claims or allegations relating to infringement of proprietary rights, or allegations that any Released Party has or should indemnify, defend or hold harmless you or any third party from any claim or allegation arising from your use or other exploitation of the Site, the Content, or the Services. You use the Site, the Content, and the Services at your own risk.
Without limitation of the foregoing, neither Quote Roller nor any other Released Party shall be liable for any direct, special, indirect or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of use, loss of profits or loss of data, whether in an action in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence) or otherwise, arising out of or in any way connected with the use of or inability to use the Application, the Site, the Content, or the Services, including without limitation any damages caused by or resulting from your reliance on the Site, the Application, the Content, or the Services or other information obtained from Quote Roller or any other Released Party or accessible via the Site, the Application, the Content, or the Services, or that result from mistakes, errors, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or email, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of god, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to Quote Roller or any other Released Party’s records, programs or services.
In no event shall the aggregate liability of Quote Roller, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), product liability, strict liability or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of the Site, the Application, the Content, or the Services exceed any compensation paid by you for access to or use of the Site, the Application, the Content, or the Services, as the case may be, during the three months prior to the date of any claim.
You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Quote Roller and the other Released Parties from any loss, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses, claims and proceedings arising out of your use of the Site, the Application, the Content, and the Services, and if you are a Subscriber, from your Customers’ use of the Services and from the use of the Site, the Application, the Content, and the Services by any person to whom you give access to your account (including as team), including any claims made by any person that any of your, and if you are a Subscriber, your Customers’, User Content infringes the rights, including the intellectual property rights, of any third party.
Notices that we give you (other than notice of amendment of these Terms, which is discussed in the introduction of these Terms) may be provided in any number of ways, depending on the circumstances. For example, we may email you or telephone you at the contact information you provide in your Registration Data. Or we may post a notice to Subscribers and Customers in the dashboard area of your account on the Site, or post the notice elsewhere on the Site. When we post notices on the Site, we post them in the area of the Site suitable to the notice. It is your responsibility to periodically review the Site for notices.
15. Applicable Law
If you choose to access the Services from locations other than California, you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other jurisdiction and you agree to indemnify Quote Roller and the other Released Parties for your failure to comply with any such laws.
16. Termination/Modification of License and Site Offerings
Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, Quote Roller reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, without any notice or liability to you, to (a) terminate your license to use the Services, or any portion thereof and the rights of any third party to which you have granted access to your User Content through the Quote Roller API; (b) block or prevent your future access to and use of all or any portion of the Services or Content and the rights of any third party to which you have granted access to your User Content through the Quote Roller API; (c) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Services or Content; and (d) impose limits on the Services or Content.
17. Inactive Accounts; Termination of Agreement
If your account is inactive for at least two months, we may deactivate your account. Deactivated accounts are not deleted – they are placed in storage and can be restored. We will notify you by email if we decide to deactivate your account. If you know in advance that your account will be inactive at some time and don’t want us to deactivate it, contact our support. If after your account has been deactivated it stays inactive and we don’t hear from you, we may terminate and delete it at any time and without notice. Account deletion is permanent and irrecoverable.
You and Quote Roller may terminate your use of the Services including your agreement to these Terms at any time. If you terminate your use of the Services you must pay the fees applicable for the balance of the then current billing period. When your Quote Roller account is terminated, your User Content will, shortly thereafter, not appear on the Services, except for User Content submitted to public areas of the Site such as the blog, forum, or product reviews, which may remain on the Site after termination. We may also retain an archival copy of your User Content after termination, and you hereby grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable license to maintain such archival copy for our internal business purposes.
If these Terms expire or terminate for any reason, Sections 4, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, and 18, and any representation or warranty you make in these Terms, shall survive indefinitely.
