Terms of Service
Welcome to VacationCRM! This document describes in detail your rights and our rights relating to the provision of the Service and the operation of the VacationCRM, so please review these Terms carefully.
What Are The Terms of Service?
The Terms of Service constitutes a contract between us. The Terms include the provisions set forth in this document and other terms or conditions that may be presented to you from time to time in connection with specific Service offerings (all of which we collectively refer to as the “Terms of Service” or “Terms”). If you do not agree to these Terms, you do not have the right to access or use our Service or purchase any products or services from the VacationCRM. If you do register for or otherwise use our Service, or purchase any products or services from the VacationCRM, you shall be deemed to confirm your acceptance of the Terms and your agreement to be a party to this binding contract.
What Is The VacationCRM Service?
The VacationCRM Service consists of VacationCRM Software (as defined below), and other products, services and web sites hosted or made available by VacationCRM, which enable you to do many wonderful things on multiple computer devices and systems (collectively, the “Service”). In exchange for being enabled to use the Service, you agree to abide by these Terms.
If This Is A Contract, Who Are The Parties?
You are one party to this contract. Except as explained in our Commercial Terms with respect to certain purchases from the VacationCRM, if you reside in the United States or Canada, then the other party to this contract is VacationCRM LLC, a corporation headquartered in Pennsylvania.
Will These Terms Of Service Ever Change?
Changes in these Terms are almost certain to happen, due to changes in our Service and the laws that apply to us and you. If we make a change, we'll do our best to provide you with advance notice, although in some situations, such as where a change is required to satisfy applicable legal requirements, an update to these Terms may need to be effective immediately. We'll announce changes here at our site, and we also may elect to notify you of changes by sending an email to the address you have provided to us. We will also try to explain the reasons for the change.
If we do update these Terms, you are free to decide whether to accept the terms or to stop using our Service (see “How is My Account Closed” below); your continued use of the Service after the effectiveness of that update will be deemed to represent your agreement with, and consent to be bound by, the new Terms. Except for changes made by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms shall be effective unless set forth in a written agreement bearing a written signature by you and us. For clarity, email or other communications will not constitute an effective written agreement for this purpose.
What Do I Have To Do To Use the VacationCRM Service?
You need to create an VacationCRM Service account. You create an account by providing us with an acceptable username and email address, and creating a password. We refer to this as your “Account Information.” We encourage you to use a distinct and non-obvious username and password combination that is different from what you use for other services. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy, completeness and confidentiality of your Account Information, and you will be responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including activities of others to whom you have provided your Account Information. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to provide us with accurate information or to keep your Account Information secure. If you discover any unauthorized use of your Account Information or suspect that anyone may be able to access your private Content without authorization, you should immediately change your password and notify our Customer Support team.
Data Privacy - Who can see my data?
The only people with access to data are employees of ValexConsulting (operator, developer and 3rd party data administrator of VacationCRM).
Any other parties are 100% prohibited from accessing the data.
Can I Share My Account With Someone Else?
VacationCRM Service accounts should not be shared. If you share your Account Information with anyone, that other person may be able to take control of the account, and we may not be able to determine who is the proper account holder. We will not have any liability to you (or anyone you share your Account Information with) as a result of your or their actions under those circumstances. Since you may use a free Service account, and since we provide a number of mechanisms to allow you to share your account Content with others, we strongly urge you not to share your Account Information with anyone, unless you are doing so as part of your estate planning purposes, as discussed below.
Once I Have An Account, What Are My Rights In The VacationCRM Service?
Once your account is created and you accept these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive license to use the Service subject to these Terms, for so long as you are not barred from receiving the Service under the laws applicable to you, until you close your account voluntarily or until we close your account pursuant to these Terms. In addition, we grant you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the VacationCRM Software provided to you by or on behalf of VacationCRM, for the sole purpose of enabling you to use the VacationCRM Software and enjoy the benefit of the Service, subject to any applicable license terms provided with the VacationCRM Software and these Terms, until your rights are terminated in accordance with such license and/or these Terms. You do not obtain any other right or interest in VacationCRM or the Service.
VacationCRM's Data Protection Laws Say My Data Is Mine - What Does That Mean?
You retain copyright and any other rights you already held in your Content before you submitted, posted or displayed it on or through the Service. But you do have to grant VacationCRM a limited license, as described below, so we can make your data accessible and usable on the Service. Other than this limited license and other rights you grant in these Terms, VacationCRM acknowledges and agrees that we do not obtain any right, title or interest from you under these Terms in any of your Content.
What Is The License I Have To Grant To VacationCRM?
In order to enable VacationCRM to operate the Service, we must obtain from you certain limited license rights to process your Content so that technical actions we take in operating the Service are not considered legal violations. For example, copyright laws could prevent us from processing, maintaining, storing, backing-up and distributing your Content, unless you give us these rights. Accordingly, by using the Service and uploading Content, you are granting VacationCRM a license to display, perform and distribute your Content and to modify (for technical purposes, e.g., making sure content is viewable on smart phones as well as computers and other devices) and reproduce such Content to enable VacationCRM to operate the Service. You also agree that VacationCRM has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion.
You agree that these rights and licenses are royalty free, worldwide and irrevocable (for so long as your Content is stored with us), and include a right for VacationCRM to make such Content available to, and pass these rights along to, others with whom VacationCRM has contractual relationships related to the provision of the VacationCRM Service, solely for the purpose of providing such services, and to otherwise permit access to or disclose your Content to third parties if VacationCRM determines such access is necessary to comply with its legal obligations.
If you elect to use any third party service or application that is integrated with VacationCRM, you also agree that the licenses granted to VacationCRM in the preceding paragraph shall apply to Content that is submitted or uploaded through such third party service or application. If the third party service or application you elect to use would access or extract Content, you grant VacationCRM the right and license to enable such access to and extraction of your Content. VacationCRM does not assume any responsibility for, or liability on account of, the actions or omissions of such third party applications or service providers.
Inasmuch as we rely upon your rights to upload and distribute your Content, you represent and warrant to VacationCRM that you have the unfettered legal rights and authority to submit your Content to VacationCRM, to grant the rights granted to VacationCRM under these Terms and to make any publication or other distribution of that Content in your use of the Service. You also represent to us that, by submitting Content to VacationCRM and granting VacationCRM the rights described in these Terms, you are not infringing the rights of any person or third party.
Finally, you understand and agree that VacationCRM, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Service to our users, may make such changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media.
Are There Rules About What I Can Do On The VacationCRM Service?
Yes. Your use of the Service must be in accordance with these Terms. When it comes to your use of VacationCRM, you agree that you are responsible for your own conduct and all conduct under your account. This means all Content - such as text, images, software, videos and anything else you can think of, no matter what the form or technical structure (collectively, “Content”) - created, transmitted, stored or displayed in your account, is your sole responsibility as the person who created the Content or introduced it into the Service. This applies whether the Content is kept private, shared or transmitted using the Service or any third party application or services integrated with the VacationCRM Service.
Will VacationCRM Look At My Content?
Your privacy in your Content is a paramount concern for us, and we hope that we never need to examine anyone's Content. However, there are limited circumstances in which we may have the need to review part or all of your Content.
Will Anyone Else See My Content?
No one else will see your Content unless, of course, you elect to share your Account Information with another person, then you would be enabling each of those permitted users of Account Information to access, use, display, perform, distribute and modify your Content (subject to any understandings or agreements you and such users may work out without VacationCRM's involvement). In addition, VacationCRM enables you to use a variety of third party services and applications that interact with the Service and your Content, and you should review the access rights you provide to those services or applications, as you may enable them to access your Content through your agreements with those parties.
I'm Guessing VacationCRM Has Some Rights Relating To The Service?
We do. They're described here:
While you own the Content you store with the VacationCRM Service, you acknowledge and agree that VacationCRM (and our licensors) own(s) all legal right, title and interest in and to the Service, including, without limitation, all software comprising a part of the Service that is hosted on VacationCRM's servers and all software deployed by you or a third party.
Intellectual Property Rights.
In agreeing to these Terms, you also agree that the rights in the Service and VacationCRM Software, including all intellectual property rights, such as trademarks, patents, industrial designs and copyrights, are protected by one or more of copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, regulations and treaties, in addition to these Terms and any Separate Agreement. In particular, you agree to not modify, create derivative works of, decompile or otherwise attempt to extract source code from any VacationCRM Software, unless you are expressly permitted to do so under an open source license or we give you express written permission.
Right to Modify the Service.
We retain the right, in our sole discretion, to implement new elements as part of and/or ancillary to the Service and any VacationCRM Software, including changes that may affect the previous mode of operation of the Service. We expect that any such modifications will enhance the overall Service, but it is possible that you may not agree with us. We also reserve the right to establish limits to the nature or size of storage available to you, the number of transmissions and email messages, the nature or size of any index or library information, the nature of, or your continued ability to access or distribute, your Content and other data, and impose other limitations at any time, with or without notice.
You also acknowledge that a variety of VacationCRM actions may impair or prevent you from accessing your Content or using the Service at certain times and/or in the same way, for limited periods or permanently, and agree that VacationCRM has no responsibility or liability as a result of any such actions or results, including, without limitation, for the deletion of, or failure to make available to you, any Content. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of any part of the Service. However, if you are a subscriber for VacationCRM and find that any such modifications or interruption of the Premium Service adversely affects you, you may notify our Customer Support team, explain the adverse impact the modification has created and, if you desire, request a termination of your Service. Upon receipt of any such request, we will endeavor to promptly remedy the adverse impact caused by the modification, extend the duration of your Service subscription for a period of time equal to the interruption and/or refund a portion of your Service subscription fee equal to the remaining unused term of the Service subscription, as we determine appropriate.
Right to Engage Third Parties.
Right to Use Third-Party Software.
VacationCRM may from time to time include as part of the Service and VacationCRM Software computer software supplied by third parties which is utilized by permission of the respective licensors and/or copyright holders on the terms provided by such parties. VacationCRM expressly disclaims any warranty or other assurance to you regarding such third party software.
Right to Update Our Software.
In connection with any modification of the Service, VacationCRM may automatically download software updates on your computers and devices from time to time with the intention of improving, enhancing, repairing and/or further developing the Service. VacationCRM will endeavor to provide you with the option of whether or not to install the update; however, in certain circumstances (e.g., security risks), VacationCRM may require you to install the update to continue accessing the Service. In all cases, you agree to permit VacationCRM to deliver these updates to you (and you to receive them) as part of your use of the Service.
How Does VacationCRM Respond To Copyright Or Other Intellectual Property Violations?
We respond to clear and complete notices of alleged infringement of copyright, trademark or other intellectual property laws that satisfy the requirements in these Terms (which we believe to comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act [www.copyright.gov
] and other applicable laws). If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been violated, please notify our Compliance team through our IP Rights Compliance Program
and we will investigate. Note that each owner of intellectual property is responsible for protecting their rights and taking any legal or other action they determine to be appropriate to do so, and VacationCRM does not accept any obligation to take any particular action to enforce or protect any party's intellectual property rights.
Where Does My Data Go?
The VacationCRM Service is available worldwide, but our data processing operations take place in the United States. If you use the Service, you acknowledge that you may be sending electronic communications (including your personal account information and Content), through computer networks owned by VacationCRM and third parties located in Texas and other locations in the United States and other countries. As a result, your use of the Service will likely result in interstate and possibly international data transmissions, and your use of the Service shall constitute your consent to permit such transmissions.
What Else Do I Need To Know?
Third-Party Links, Content and Programming.
We may include or recommend third party resources, materials and developers and/or links to third party websites, content and applications as part of, or in connection with, the Service. We may have little or no control over such sites or developers and, accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that (i) we are not responsible for the availability of such external sites, content or applications; (ii) we are not responsible or liable for any content or other materials or performance available from such sites or applications and (iii) we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, materials or applications.
You agree to indemnify and hold VacationCRM, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, advertisers and partners harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including legal and other professional fees) arising from or in any way related to any third party claims relating to your use of any of the Service, any violation of these Terms of Service or any other actions connected with your use of the Service (including all actions taken under your account). In the event of such claim, we will provide notice of the claim, suit or action to the contact information we have for the account, provided that any failure to deliver such notice to you shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligation hereunder.
