This is a legally binding contract between you and Tapjet Ltd. Please make sure you read it, because it is important. We’ve tried to make it as clear as possible, but we welcome your feedback to email@example.com if you have suggestions or questions.
We’re going to use some shorthand to make this easier to read. When we say “Tapjet”, we mean the Tapjet Platform and the services offered on that platform. When we say “we,” “us,” or “our,” we mean Tapjet Ltd, a UK corporation. When we say “your content,” we mean any text, sound, graphics or other material which you post, upload, or otherwise share on the Tapjet platform; similarly, when we say “Tapjet content,” we mean the copyrightable text, sound, graphics, and other material owned by Tapjet Ltd. And when we say “terms,” we mean these terms of service.
Please read these terms before using the platform. By using this platform you agree to these terms. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not use the platform. If we make material changes to these terms, we’ll let you know either through the platform or via email (at the email address you provide). If you do not agree to those changes, you may send a request to cancel your account to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we do not hear from you within ten days, the revised terms will apply to you.

Tapjet is designed for use by adults. You must be thirteen years of age or older to use it. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of thirteen, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.

We own our stuff; you own yours.
You retain ownership of all content you post, upload to, or otherwise share on the site. However, by posting, uploading, or sharing your content, you grant us a non-exclusive, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to access, use, and display your content in connection with the site and services we provide to you. This license permits us to perform the services that you registered for; for example, it permits us link to your app from the Tapjet platform and allows deep linking to your content, but it does not permit us to sell your content to advertisers, nor does it transfer the copyright to us. This license ends when you delete the material or your account.
In addition, Tapjet provides features that allow you to share your content with others. There are many things that others may do with that content, including copying it, modifying it, and re-sharing it. So, please consider carefully what you choose to share and with whom; we take no responsibility for that activity.
When you delete your account, any comments or content that you contributed to someone else’s documents will remain on the site, and will not be deleted.
All Tapjet content, the selection, compilation, arrangement and presentation of all materials, and the overall design of the site are copyrighted by us, and are protected by UK and international laws. Use of our content without our express prior written permission is strictly prohibited.
Tapjet Ltd deals with copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
You may not post, upload, or otherwise place any content or information on the site that belongs to a third party, unless you have the legal right to do so. If you believe that any such information or content has been posted on the site, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org or the address provided below:
Upon notification of claimed infringement, we will respond expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. We will also notify the person who posted, uploaded, or otherwise placed the allegedly infringing material on the site that we have removed or disabled access to such material.
If you believe that material has been removed improperly, you must send a written counter notification to email@example.com or the address below, and include:
Upon receipt of a counter notification complying with these requirements, we will promptly provide the original reporter with a copy of the counter notification, and inform that person that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it if we do not receive notice within ten business days that the original reporter is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the material at issue.

Tapjet is designed to help people share content and communicate with each other; as such, we have some ground rules which you must adhere to when using Tapjet. You agree not to do any of the following:
You further agree that you are responsible for your actions in relation to Tapjet, and for any communications transmitted under your account; that you will comply with all laws relating to the transmission of technical data or software exported from the United Kingdom; and that you will comply with all applicable local, county, national and international laws and regulations, including without limitation those related to privacy, data collection, and email creation and delivery.
If it appears you have violated any of these rules, we may, in our sole discretion, remove any offending material or immediately limit or terminate your account.
Tapjet subscriptions and add-ons are quantifiable, and have defined rules and limits on the access granted by them.
A single Tapjet Subscription allows you to have 1 published app/project and up to 4 unpublished apps/projects.
Every other Tapjet Subscription allows you to have an additional 1 published app/project and up to 4 unpublished apps/projects.
Each Tapjet Subscription will automatically renew (and a charge will occur automatically) according to the subscription's interval (monthly or annual). On every renewal, an invoice will be sent via e-mail to the account owner. To unsubscribe from the recurring subscription, the account owner can disable the subscription under the "Account" tab of the my.tapjet.co website (after signing-in). Unsubscribing will stop the subscription from renewing on the next billing date. Any access to subscription features will be disabled by the next billing date. Once an invoice is issued for a new subscription period, it will not be refundable.
Tapjet reserves the right to process any refunds at Tapjet's sole discretion. You may be a applicable for a full or partial refund, if your purchase falls under the "Sale of Goods Act" and a refund is requested 14 days from the time the purchase invoice in question was issued. You cannot apply for a refund, if: a service has been delivered (e.g. we've submitted a binary to the AppStore - "Concierge Submission") or access have been granted during the time period in question (e.g. the account had access to the Tapjet service for 7 days - these 7 days are non-refundable.)
A single "Concierge Submission" add-on provides access to our concierge service, but is limited to a single app/project. In case of submission issues and rejections, these will be handled by our concierge service for up to 6 months after the initial binary submission. The customer requesting the concierge service is required to provide any details necessary via e-mail or the Tapjet website in order to complete the submission. Failure to provide necessary information in 6 months after the initial request will result in forfeiting the request.
"Concierge Submission" comes with no guarantees. While Tapjet will put in their best effort into getting your app approved on the AppStore, we cannot guarantee that it will be approved by Apple. Your submission must comply with Apple AppStore's Terms and Conditions.
All "Kickstarter Backer" subscriptions need to comply with the same rules as any other "Tapjet Subscription".
You can cancel your account at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you like, you may export your documents prior to cancelling your account. Upon cancelling your account, your files will be marked for deletion in sixty days, and will be deleted upon expiration of that sixty-day period.
We will strive to prevent interruptions to the service and be good stewards of your data. However, Tapjet and our services are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including without limitation any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. We do not make any warranty that the site or our services will meet your requirements, or that the services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free, or that defects, if any, will be corrected. You understand that you download from or otherwise obtain content or services through Tapjet at your own discretion and risk.
Under no circumstances — including, without limitation, negligence — shall we be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, resulting from (1) the use or the inability to use the site; (2) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services; (3) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (4) loss of profits, use, data or other intangibles, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us, our officers, directors, employees, members, partners, agents, and suppliers, and their respective affiliates, officers, directors, employees, members, shareholders, partners, and agents, from any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of your use of Tapjet, including but not limited to your violation of this agreement. We may, at our sole discretion, assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you. The assumption of such defense or control by us, however, shall not excuse any of your indemnity obligations.
We may at any time decide to alter, amend, modify, or terminate the site, any functionality or portion of it, all in our sole discretion, and you understand that there is no guarantee that the site or any portion or functionality of it will continue to operate or be available for any particular period of time.
These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of the United Kingdom, without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that you will bring any claim or cause of action arising out of your use of Tapjet in the courts located within the United Kingdom, and you also agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of those courts. You agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of your use of the site or these terms must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or it shall be forever barred, notwithstanding any statute of limitations or other law to the contrary. If any provision contained in these terms is determined unenforceable, then such provision will be severed and replaced with a new provision that most closely reflects the intent of the original provision, and the remaining provisions of these terms will remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of these terms shall be effective except pursuant to a written instrument signed by us expressly waiving compliance, and any such waiver shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose stated in such writing. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of these terms and/or your use of Tapjet. You may not assign any right, interest, or benefit provided under these terms or through the site without our express prior written consent. These terms set forth the entire agreement between you and us, and supersede any and all prior communications, agreements and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and us with respect to the site and our services. A printed version of these terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these terms and/or your use of Tapjet to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
