YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES (DEFINED BELOW) ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES IN ANY MANNER.
Terms of Service
Effective date: January 1, 2019
Welcome to Egeria! Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website(s), products, services and applications (the “Services”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so these Terms may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the www.egeria.io website or by sending you an email.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
What about my privacy?

Your use of the Services is subject to the following additional restrictions:

Do I have to grant any licenses to Company or to other users?
For all User Submissions, including User Submissions that are viewable only by you, you hereby grant Company a license to translate, modify, and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Services, as described in these Terms. This is a license only – your ownership in User Submissions is not affected.
If you provide us (in a direct email or otherwise) with any feedback, suggestions, improvements, enhancement, and/or feature requests relating to the Services (a “Public User Submission”), then you grant Company the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Submission for the purpose of make that Public User Submission accessible to all Egeria users and providing the Services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Submission in connection with the Services, for any purpose, provided that Egeria will try to notify you if it uses your Public User Submission for any reason other than displaying it on the Services.
You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual sublicensable, irrevocable, and worldwide, provided that, when you delete your Egeria account, we will stop displaying your User Submissions (other than Public User Submissions, which may remain fully available). You understand and agree that it may not be possible to completely delete all of your content from Egeria’s records.
Finally, you understand and agree that Egeria, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users (including you), may need to make changes to your User Submissions to conform and adapt those User Submissions to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.
What if I see something on the Services that infringes my copyright?
You may have heard of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), as it relates to online service providers, like Egeria, being asked to remove material that allegedly violates someone’s copyright. We respect others’ intellectual property rights, and we reserve the right to delete or disable Content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate the accounts of repeat alleged infringers. If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been infringed please contact us at email@example.com
Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Services?
Any information or content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and you access all such information and content at your own risk, and we aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services.
You are responsible for all Content you contribute, in any manner, to the Services, and you represent and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it. You will keep all your registration information accurate and current. You are responsible for all your activity in connection with the Services.
Egeria has no control over and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third-party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. In addition, Egeria will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third-party site or service. By using the Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website or service.
Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree that Egeria shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.

In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Egeria, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
Will Egeria ever change the Services?
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice.
Does Egeria cost anything?
User subscription fee rates and policies are as established in a separate agreement or other authorized arrangement (for example, via payment in the application or on landing page advertising a certain deal) between you and Egeria or between you and an authorized Reseller.
What if I want to stop using Egeria?
This Agreement will become effective (“Effective Date”) when you accept the terms and conditions of the Agreement, either by signaling “I ACCEPT” with a button or by signing a hard or electronic copy of the Agreement, and it will remain in effect in accordance with the appropriate license term specified below. The initial term of the license will begin on the effective date of the initial subscription for the license and will continue in effect for the period including the month in which the license commenced and the 12 consecutive months thereafter, and (subject to payment of annual subscription fees on a timely basis) thereafter for successive one-year terms, unless terminated as provided herein.
Either party may terminate this Agreement for cause upon 30 days written notice of a material breach to the other party if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such notice period. This Agreement also may be terminated by either party immediately and without notice if the other party becomes insolvent, files a petition in bankruptcy or petition for other similar relief, or ceases to conduct business in the ordinary course, and such condition is not remedied within 30 days of its occurrence.
Either party may terminate this Agreement at the end of the then-current subscription license term by giving the other party notice of non-renewal at least 60 days prior to the end of the then-current term.
Your obligations under this Agreement shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement. In the event that this Agreement is terminated by Egeria for cause, in addition to any of its other rights or remedies, Egeria reserves the right to suspend access to your use of the Services.
Egeria is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. Egeria has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms.
Account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account. If we have deleted your account by mistake, contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org – we will try to help, but unfortunately, we can’t promise that we can recover or restore anything.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit, typically containing information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.
Cookies are used to enable certain features (eg. logging in), to track site usage (eg. analytics), to store your user settings (eg. timezone, notification preferences), and to personalise your content (eg. advertising, language).
Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies”, and typically only track your activity on that particular site. Cookies set by other sites and companies (ie. third parties) are called “third-party cookies”, and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.
How you can control or opt out of cookies?
If you browse websites from multiple devices, you may need to update your settings on each individual device.
Although some cookies can be blocked with little impact on your experience of a website, blocking all cookies may mean you are unable to access certain features and content across the sites you visit.
