Terms of Services Agreement
THIS TERMS OF SERVICES AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) constitutes a legally binding agreement between you, whether personally or on behalf of another user (“User”) and Boomerang Bills, LLC (“Boomerang”), concerning User’s access to and use of Boomerang’s services, including mobile applications, websites, software, hardware, and other products and services (individually, “Service,” and collectively, “Services”). USER ACCEPTS AND AGREES TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT BY ACKNOWLEDGING SUCH ACCEPTANCE DURING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS AND ALSO BY CONTINUING TO USE THE SERVICES. IF USER DOES NOT AGREE TO ABIDE BY THIS AGREEMENT, OR TO MODIFICATIONS THAT BOOMERANG MAY MAKE TO THIS AGREEMENT IN THE FUTURE, USER MUST NOT USE OR ACCESS OR CONTINUE TO USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES.
In consideration of the mutual covenants and obligations in this Agreement, User and Boomerang agree as follows:
SECTION 1: REGISTRATION
User must open an account (“Account”) with Boomerang to use the Services. During registration, Boomerang will ask User for information, including User’s name and other personal information. User must provide accurate and complete information in response to these questions, and keep that information current. User is fully responsible for all activity that occurs under the Account, including, but not limited to, for any actions taken by persons to whom User has granted or has not granted access to the Account. Boomerang reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Account if User provides inaccurate, untrue or incomplete information, or fails to comply with the Account registration requirements. Boomerang’s Services are conditioned upon User’s completion of its obligations under, and continued adherence to, this Agreement, which obligations and conditions User must complete to the satisfaction of Boomerang.
SECTION 2: Revisions, Disclosures, and Notices
Boomerang may amend this Agreement at any time, after providing User with notice that it deems to be reasonable in the circumstances, by posting a revised version of the Agreement on its website or by communicating a revised version of the Agreement to User through the Services (“Updated Terms”). The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time it is posted, but will not apply retroactively. User’s continued use of the Services after the posting of the Updated Terms constitutes User’s acceptance of the Updated Terms. Any dispute will be governed by the Agreement in place when the dispute arose. User agrees that Boomerang may provide disclosures and notices required by law and other information about User’s Account to User electronically, by posting it on Boomerang’s website, by pushing notifications through the Services, or by emailing it to the email address listed in User’s Account. Electronic disclosures and notices have the same meaning and effect as if Boomerang had provided User with paper copies. Such disclosures and notices are considered received by User within 24 hours of the time posted to Boomerang’s website, or within 24 hours of the time emailed to User unless Boomerang receives a notice that the email was not delivered. User consents to accept and receive communications from Boomerang, including e-mail, text messages, calls, and push notifications to the cellular telephone number User provides to Boomerang. These communications may be generated by automatic telephone dialing systems that will deliver prerecorded messages, including for the purposes of secondary authentication, receipts, reminders, and other notifications. Standard message and data rates applied by User’s cell phone carrier may apply to communications received by User from Boomerang. User may opt-out of receiving communications by following the unsubscribe options provided. Opting-out of receiving communications may impact User’s use of the Services.
SECTION 3: TERM OF AGREEMENT
A. The term of this Agreement is the term selected by User when registering for the Account (“Term”).
B. The Term will automatically renew an additional Term unless terminated earlier by Boomerang in its sole discretion. Boomerang may, but is not obligated to, provide User with notice, in a manner that it deems reasonable in the circumstances, of the renewal 7 days before the renewal. User may opt-out of the automatic renewal by providing Boomerang with written notice at least 1 day before the end of the then-existing Term. If Boomerang terminates this Agreement prior to the end of the then-existing Term, User will be entitled to receive a prorated refund.
C. If this Agreement or User’s Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, all rights granted to User by Boomerang will end, Boomerang may, but is not obligated to, delete User’s information and Account data stored on Boomerang’s servers, and Boomerang will not be liable to User or any third party for compensation, reimbursement, or damages for any termination or suspension of the Services, or for deletion of User’s information or Account data. In addition to any of User’s payment obligations, the following sections of this Agreement survive and remain in effect in accordance with their terms upon termination: 3 (Term of Agreement), 6 (Indemnification), 8 (Ownership of Content), 9 (Limitation of Liability & Release), 10 (User’s Representations and Warranties), 11 (No Warranties), 12 (Choice of Law; Forum), 13 (Miscellaneous), and 14 (Waiver of Jury Trial).
SECTION 4: COMPENSATION
By signing up for the Services, User will pay Boomerang the amounts specified in Boomerang’s current Standard Fee Schedule set forth on Boomerang’s website (“Fee Schedule”). The Fee Schedule is subject to modification by Boomerang at any time for any reason. For existing Users, any modified Fee Schedule will automatically apply upon renewal of the Term. Payments of fees will be automatically charged to User’s payment method, including credit or debit card, contained in User’s Account, and User authorizes Boomerang to make such charges, which will not be disputed by User. User authorizes Boomerang to automatically charge User’s payment method at the end of any free trial. Boomerang may, but is not obligated to, provide User with a receipt after payment. Unless otherwise provided specifically in terms agreed to with respect to Services, fees will be charged on the anniversary of the term of their Term until cancelled. User may cancel a Service at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If User cancels a Service, User will continue to have access to that Service through the end of the current billing period, but User will not be entitled to a refund or credit for any fee already due or paid. User’s continued use of Services after a change to the fee will constitute User’s agreement to such change.
