Terms of Service
Posted: September 21, 2020
By accessing and using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization or entity, then you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization or entity.
Our Services allow users to provide us with things like pdf documents, lease abstracts, and abstract templates ("your Content" or “user Content”). We claim no intellectual property rights over your Content but we need your permission to do things like access, host, scan, summarize, format, track, and share your Content when you ask. Our Services allow members of the same organization to view, modify, and delete each other's uploaded information so please consider carefully what you choose to share. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.
Your conduct and your Content must comply with these Terms and the our Acceptable Use Policy. You are responsible for safeguarding your password that you use access the Services. You agree not to disclose your password to others and to notify us in the case of a security breach.
By using our Services, you are representing to us that you are above the age of 13.
License to You
Subject to these Terms, Abstract gives you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license solely to use the Services. You agree not to reverse engineer or decompile the Services or any part thereof, except and only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation.
We do not warrant that the Services will be compatible with your device or browser.
All right, title, and interest in and to the Services (excluding User Content) are and will remain the exclusive property of Abstract and its licensors. The Service is protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of both the United States and foreign countries. These Terms don't grant you any right, title or interest in the Services, others' content in the Services, Abstract trademarks, logos, and other brand features. Any feedback, comments, or suggestions you may provide regarding Abstract, or 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 strive to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can't guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ABSTRACT AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some places don't allow the disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Limitation of Liability
Abstracts, its suppliers, licensors, affiliates, and partners do not warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the Abstract Services, the content provided therein (including the user content) or any third party sites in terms of correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. The user content is provided to you as a tool to help you stay organized but it is not intended as a replacement for your user-supplied lease content and it is your responsibility to review the user-supplied lease content and abide by its terms. You understand and agree that you use, access, download, or otherwise obtain information, materials, or data through the Abstract services or any third party sites at your own discretion and risk that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your property (including your computer system) or loss of data that results from the download or use of such material or data.
Abstract, its suppliers, licensors, affiliates, and partners do not warrant that the Abstract materials, user content, the Abstract Services or any other information offered on or through the Abstract website or any third party sites will be uninterrupted, or free of errors, viruses or other harmful components and do not warrant that any of the foregoing will be corrected.
To the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law, Abstract, and its affiliates, partners, and suppliers disclaim all warranties, statutory, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement of proprietary rights. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from Abstract or through the Abstract Services will create any warranty not expressly stated herein. You expressly acknowledge that the term "Abstract" includes Abstract's partners, officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents, service providers, suppliers, licensors, affiliates, and subcontractors.
You may stop using our Services at any time. We also reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time at our discretion and without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of the Services if you're not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in a manner that would cause us legal liability, disrupt the Services or disrupt others' use of the Services. We'll provide you with notice via the email address associated with your account before we do so.
This is the entire agreement between you and Abstract relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes all previous communications, representations, understandings and agreements, either oral or written, between the parties with respect to said subject matter. The Terms shall not be modified except in a writing signed by both parties or by a change to these Terms made by Abstract as set forth in these Terms.
No Class Actions
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed.
These Terms will be governed by Georgia law except for its conflicts of laws principles, unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of any other jurisdiction.
Waiver, Severability & Assignment
Abstract's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Abstract may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
Modification to Terms
Abstract is in a private beta version and rolling out new features that may restrict access or cause downtime from time to time. Because Abstract is a work in progress, we will update our Terms from time to time. We will always post the latest Terms on our website and will notify you if any meaningful changes to these Terms are made. Your continued use of our Services following the publishing of updated Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes.
Acceptable Use Policy
Abstract is trusted by its users, and we trust you to use our Service responsibly. You agree not to misuse the Service. For example, you must not and must not attempt to do the following things:
