Description of Service
The Service is a non-downloadable web application developed and operated by Celant designed to detect certain types of errors in legal documents. It analyzes user uploaded Microsoft Word DOC or DOCX file(s) (together, the "Document") and provides its analysis by way of highlighting the Document and making the highlighted Document available for download to the user, or upon user request, sending such highlighted Document as an email attachment to the user. Specifically, (i) when a defined term is properly used in the document, the term is highlighted throughout in green; (ii) when a defined term is never used in the document, the term is highlighted throughout in red; (iii) when a Capitalized term appears in the document and it neither a defined term nor a generally known capitalized term, then it is highlighted throughout in pink; and (iv) at the user's option, if a lower-cased term might need to be Capitalized because a corresponding Defined Term exists, the term is highlighted throughout in yellow. We reserve the right to refuse to provide the Service for any reason, including for any violations of our Acceptable Use Policy or these Terms as determined by us in good faith.
The Service allows you to identify defined-terms related errors in your Document by highlighting certain portions of the Document. You retain ownership of your Document prior to, during, and after the highlighting of the Document or the use of the Service, but by uploading it onto the Service, you are granting us a license to use, copy, process, transmit and host that Document for the purpose of (i) providing you the Service and associated support; and (ii) analyzing and improving the operation of the Service.
You represent that you have all right, title, and interest to the Document or materials you upload onto DefCheck or provide to Celant ("Materials"), including but not limited to any consent, authorization, release, clearance or license from any third party (such as, but not limited to, any release related to rights of privacy or publicity) necessary for you to provide, post, upload, input or submit the Materials, and that posting such Materials does not violate or constitute the infringement of any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, right of privacy, right of publicity, moral rights, or other intellectual property right recognized by any applicable jurisdiction of any person or entity, or otherwise constitute the breach of any agreement with any other person or entity. You represent and warrant that the Materials you supply do not violate these Terms.
We reserve the right to block Documents from being uploaded onto the Service or transmit highlighted Document to the user that violates our Acceptable Use Policy or these Terms or that we otherwise reasonably believe may damage or create liability for Celant.
• You must provide accurate information when you create your DefCheck account.
• You are responsible for safeguarding the password and for all activities that occur under your account. You should notify DefCheck or Celant immediately if you become aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.
• You must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy at all times when using the Service.
• You may never use another user's account without permission.
• You may not disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the Service or attempt or assist anyone else to do so, unless such restriction is prohibited by law.
• Our Service is not intended for use by persons under the age of 13. By using the Service you are representing to us that you are over the age of 13.
We will use industry standard technical and organizational security measures in connection with the temporary storage, processing and transfer of your Document that are designed to protect the integrity of that Document and to guard against unauthorized or unlawful access to, use of, or processing of such Document.
You are free to stop using our Service at any time. We also reserve the right to suspend or end the Service at any time at our discretion and without notice. We may also terminate or suspend your access to the Service at any time if you are not complying with these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy or if you are using the Service in a manner that we believe may cause us financial or legal liability.
The Service has a 14-day trial period for newly registered users. After the initial 14-day trial period, a valid credit card is required for you to use the Service at any time. The pricing with respect to the subscription is provided in the Pricing page. DefCheck or Celant reserves the right to modify the Service and any associated fees with notice at any time; such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to DefCheck or the Service itself (behind the login page). All fees applicable to the user are exclusive of all taxes or duties imposed by governing authorities. You alone are responsible for payment of all applicable taxes or duties.
Celant's Intellectual Property Rights
The Service (excluding Document provided by users) constitutes Celant's intellectual property and will remain the exclusive property of Celant and its licensors. Any feedback, comments, or suggestions you may provide regarding the Service is entirely voluntary and we will be free to use such feedback, comments or suggestions as we see fit and without any obligation to you. We do, however, obtain the user's consent prior to associating any name or identifiable information to any specific testimonial.
Celant respects the intellectual property rights of others and we expect our users to do the same. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with the law, and such notices should be reported to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Modifications to the Service
The Service may be modified from time to time, often without prior notice to you. Your continued use of the Service constitutes your acceptance of such modifications. If you are not satisfied with a modification we make to the Service, your remedy is to terminate your use of the Service.
