Welcome to OrgOrg! These Terms of Service (these ‘Terms’) of OrgOrg, LLC (‘we,’ ‘our,’ or ‘us’) are an agreement that describes your rights and responsibilities as an OrgOrg customer.
More specifically, these Terms govern how you may access and use: (i) orgorg.us, its subdomains, and any other website where these Terms are posted; (ii) OrgOrg's online hosted services; and (iii) OrgOrg's ‘Software,’ meaning, collectively, our browser extensions, integrations, mobile applications, other downloadable apps, application programming interfaces (‘APIs’), and tools and documentation ((i) through (iii) collectively, our ‘Service’ or ‘OrgOrg’).
THESE TERMS CONTAIN A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN SECTION 14.2 (THE ‘ARBITRATION AGREEMENT’) AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION IN SECTION 14.3 (THE ‘CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER’) THAT REQUIRE, WITH ONLY SPECIFIED EXCEPTIONS IN SECTIONS 14.1 AND 14.2 OR UNLESS YOU OPT OUT PURSUANT TO THE INSTRUCTIONS IN SECTION 14.2, THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS, COLLECTIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS.
If you are an individual and you access or use OrgOrg on behalf of a company, organization, principal, or other entity, such as your employer (each, together with its affiliates, an ‘Organization’), then: (i) these Terms of Service are an agreement between us and you and us and that Organization; (ii) you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that Organization to these Terms (and if you do not have the authority, you may not access or use OrgOrg); (iii) your acceptance of these Terms will bind such Organization to these Terms; (iv) your individual right to access and use OrgOrg may be suspended or terminated (and ownership and administration of your OrgOrg Account may be transferred) if you cease to be associated with, or cease to use an email address associated with, owned by, or provisioned by, that Organization; (v) we may disclose information regarding you and your use of the Service, including Your Content (defined below), to such Organization, or to appropriate individuals associated with that Organization; and (vi) the terms ‘you’ and ‘your’, as used in these Terms, refer to both you and such Organization. If you sign up for OrgOrg using an email address associated with, owned by, or provisioned by an Organization, or if an Organization pays fees due in connection with your access to or use of OrgOrg (or reimburses you for payment of such fees), or otherwise, then we may deem you, in our sole discretion, to be accessing and using OrgOrg on behalf of that Organization. You represent and warrant that all information that you provide to us regarding any Organization on whose behalf you use OrgOrg, including information identifying other users associated with such Organization or email domains owned by such Organization, is and at all times will be truthful, accurate, and complete, and that you will immediately notify us should any such information change or no longer be truthful, accurate, or complete.

You may not use another user's OrgOrg Account without such user's permission. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your OrgOrg Account, and you must keep your OrgOrg Account password(s) strong and secure. You should notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your OrgOrg Account. Any individual with administrator-level access to your OrgOrg Account can modify your OrgOrg Account settings, access and billing information.

If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out by clicking the unsubscribe link within each marketing or advertising message.

1.4 Your Content
As between us and you, you (or your licensors) will own any and all information, data, and other content, in any form or medium, that is collected, downloaded, or otherwise received, directly or indirectly, from you (or on your behalf) by or through OrgOrg (‘Your Content’). For an Organizational account, we may assume, in our sole discretion, that all of Your Content belongs to that Organization. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that we may retain, take possession of, delete, or deny you access to Your Content if we believe, in our sole discretion, that some or all of Your Content, or your use of OrgOrg, violates these Terms.
If you are an individual using OrgOrg on behalf of an Organization and are collaborating with other employees or other individuals who have access to Your Content under your OrgOrg Account, or if you share Your Content with other individuals within or outside of such Organization, the content on your OrgOrg Account that you make available to such other individuals (as well as other information, such as the names and contact information of other individuals who have access to your workspace(s) or Your Content within OrgOrg) will be visible, accessible, and, depending on their designated level of access, editable by such individuals.
You can remove Your Content from your OrgOrg Account by deleting it. However, in certain instances, some of Your Content may not be completely removed. We are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of any of Your Content, or any failure to remove or delete such content.
In connection with Your Content, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have all necessary rights, licenses, and consents to provide, receive, access, and/or use Your Content and any other content you provide, receive, access, and/or use through or in connection with OrgOrg; and (ii) Your Content and our use thereof as contemplated by these Terms and our Service will not violate any law or infringe any rights of any third party, including any intellectual property rights and privacy rights.
We take no responsibility and assume no liability for Your Content. You shall be solely responsible for Your Content and the consequences of posting it, publishing it, sharing it, or otherwise making it available on OrgOrg. You shall be solely responsible and indemnify us for Your Content.

1.6 Service Changes, Suspension, and Termination
You may cancel your OrgOrg Account at any time through your Account Settings page, though we will be sorry to see you go.

We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to OrgOrg without notice or liability, without cause or for any reason, including if in our sole discretion you violate any provision of these Terms. Upon termination, you continue to be bound by these Terms.
1.7 Product Trials
In our sole discretion, we may make available to you certain product features on a trial basis, and such trial may be designated by us as an alpha, a beta, a pilot, a limited release, a test period, a developer preview, or an evaluation, or using another similar term (‘Product Trial’). You may participate in any Product Trial, subject to these Terms and any additional terms and conditions made available by us. You acknowledge that product features made available to you as part of a Product Trial (‘Trial Features’) might contain bugs, errors, or omissions. Trial Features are provided to you for testing purposes only, on an ‘AS IS’ basis, without any warranty, liability, indemnity, or performance obligations. Trial Features are not subject to any service level agreements or support commitments. Trial Features might never be made available for general use or otherwise be provided in a future version of our Service, and we may discontinue Trial Features, or revoke your access to Trial Features, at any time for any or no reason, in our sole discretion, without any liability to you. Discontinuing Trial Features, or making Trial Features inaccessible to you, may have the effect of making some or all of Your Content inaccessible to you.
2. Our Intellectual Property
You acknowledge and agree that OrgOrg and all materials and content displayed or made available on OrgOrg, and all software, algorithms, code, technology, and intellectual property underlying and included in or with OrgOrg, and all intellectual property rights therein and thereto throughout the world (collectively and individually, our ‘Intellectual Property’), are our (or our licensors’ as applicable) sole and exclusive property. Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to create a license in or under any intellectual property rights, and you agree not to access, sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit, or create derivative works from any of our Intellectual Property.

4. Charges and Payment
4.1 Subscription Plans
We may offer plans that you may sign up for that allow you to use certain aspects of OrgOrg, either for free or for a fee (a ‘Subscription Plan’). We may change Subscription Plans, including by offering new services or features for additional fees and charges or by adding or amending fees and charges for existing Subscription Plans, in our sole discretion. Any change to a Subscription Plan's pricing or payment terms will become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in these Terms. Subscription Plans may set allotments for use of designated Service aspects. Use of Service aspects in excess of a Subscription Plan's designated allotment may result in (additional) fees, and such fees will be included in a true-up invoice or charged automatically via the payment method associated with your OrgOrg Account (‘Payment Method’).
4.2 Billing and Payment
For any paid Subscription Plan, you agree to make payments, and we may automatically charge your Payment Method, as described below, for so long as your OrgOrg Account remains active. Subscription Plans may be offered for a set subscription period (each such period, a ‘Subscription Term’). If you elect to sign up for a paid Subscription Plan, you agree to the pricing and payment terms specified at checkout, at orgorg.us/pricing, or as otherwise posted or communicated to you, as we may update them from time to time. You must provide OrgOrg with a current, valid, accepted Payment Method. When you initiate a purchase transaction, you authorize us to provide your payment information to third parties so we can complete your transaction and to charge your Payment Method, in United States dollars, for the type of transaction you have selected (plus any applicable taxes and other charges) and any applicable recurring charges as described below. You will pay applicable taxes, if any, relating to any such transaction and are also responsible for any payment-related fees such as wire transfer fees, credit card processing fees, and foreign transaction fees. We currently use Stripe as our third party service provider for payment services, and by using OrgOrg you agree to be bound by Stripe's Services Agreement, currently available at stripe.com/us/legal. If your payment is not successfully settled for any reason, you remain responsible for any amounts not remitted to us. All payments for transactions are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms.
Your subscription continues until canceled by you or we terminate your access to or use of OrgOrg in accordance with these Terms. Unless and until canceled by you, all Subscription Plans will automatically renew for renewal terms equal in length to the original Subscription Term. If you do not want a Subscription Plan to renew, you must cancel it before the end of the Subscription Term via the billing settings page on your OrgOrg Account. If you purchase a Subscription Plan, we (or our third-party payment processor) will automatically charge you each year or month, as applicable, on the anniversary of the commencement of your subscription, using the payment information you have provided, until you cancel your subscription. By agreeing to these Terms and electing to purchase a Subscription Plan, you acknowledge that your Subscription Plan has recurring payment features and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to cancellation of your subscription by you or us.
4.4 Cancellations and Terminations
If we cancel or terminate your Subscription Plan, except in the event of your breach or failure to pay fees when due, we will grant you a prorated refund for the remaining unused portion of your Subscription Term. If you cancel or terminate your Subscription Plan, your right to use OrgOrg will continue until the end of your then-current Subscription Term and then terminate without further charges. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you live in the European Union or Turkey and cancel your Subscription Plan within fourteen (14) days of purchase, you will be eligible for a refund of any payments made for the canceled Subscription Term, and, if you request such a refund, your right to use OrgOrg will terminate immediately upon cancellation of your subscription. Subject to the preceding sentence, if you cancel or terminate your Subscription Plan, unless required by law, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF ANY PORTION OF ANY FEES PAID FOR THE THEN-CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM AT THE TIME OF CANCELLATION.
4.5 Late Payments
Any late payments shall be subject to a service charge equal to 1.5% per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less (plus the costs of collection).
5. Additional Terms for Mobile Applications
5.1 Mobile Applications
We may make available software to access our Service via a compatible mobile device (‘Mobile Applications’). You may incur mobile data charges from your wireless provider in connection with the Mobile Applications, and you agree that you are solely responsible for any such charges. We grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use a compiled code copy of the Mobile Applications for your OrgOrg Account on one or more mobile devices owned or leased solely by you, solely in accordance with these Terms. You acknowledge that we may from time to time issue upgraded versions of the Mobile Applications, and may automatically electronically upgrade the version of the Mobile Applications that you are using on your mobile device. You consent to such automatic upgrading on your mobile device, and agree that these Terms will apply to all such upgrades. Any third-party code that may be incorporated in the Mobile Applications is covered by the applicable open source or third-party license EULA, if any, authorizing use of such code. The foregoing license grant is not a sale of the Mobile Applications or any copy thereof. We or our third-party partners or suppliers retain all right, title, and interest in the Mobile Applications (and any copy thereof). Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties, or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in these Terms, is void.
5.2 App Store Terms
If you acquire any Mobile Applications from any third-party app store, such as the Apple App Store: (i) you acknowledge that these Terms are between you and us only, and not with such third party; (ii) your use of such Mobile Applications must comply with such third party’s then-current app store terms and conditions; (iii) such third party is only a provider of the app store where you obtained such Mobile Applications; (iv) we, and not such third party, are solely responsible for our Mobile Applications; (v) such third party has no obligation or liability to you with respect to such Mobile Applications or these Terms; and (vi) you acknowledge and agree that such third party is a third-party beneficiary to these Terms as it relates to such Mobile Applications.
7.1 Security Measures
We have implemented measures designed to secure Your Content from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use Your Content for improper purposes. You understand that internet technologies have the inherent potential for disclosure. You acknowledge that you provide Your Content at your own risk. You can learn more about our security practices at orgorg.us/trust/security.
7.2 Two-Factor Authentication
OrgOrg supports log-in using two-factor authentication (‘2FA’), which is known to materially reduce the risk of unauthorized use of or access to the Service. OrgOrg recommends that all users implement 2FA for their use of OrgOrg. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, we will not be responsible for any damages, losses, or liability to you or anyone else if such damages, losses, or liability would have been prevented by the use of 2FA.

- A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the Material in question was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the content to be removed or disabled (e.g., ‘I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that each item of content identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the content to be removed or disabled, or that the content identified by the complainant has been removed or disabled at the URL identified and will no longer be shown.’); and

13.1 Confidential Information
From time to time, either party to these Terms (the ‘Disclosing Party’) may disclose or make available to the other (the ‘Receiving Party’) non-public, proprietary, or confidential information of the Disclosing Party (‘Confidential Information’). Confidential Information includes any information that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure, including non-public business, product, technology and marketing information. Confidential Information does not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of the Receiving Party's breach of this Section 13; (ii) is or becomes available to the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third-party source, provided that such third party is not and was not prohibited from disclosing such Confidential Information; (iii) was in the Receiving Party's possession prior to the Disclosing Party's disclosure thereof; or (iv) was or is independently developed by the Receiving Party without using any of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information.
13.2 Protection and Use of Confidential Information
13.3 Compelled Access or Disclosure
If the Receiving Party is required by applicable law or legal process to disclose any Confidential Information, it shall, prior to making such disclosure, use commercially-reasonable efforts to notify the Disclosing Party of such requirements to afford the Disclosing Party the opportunity to seek, at the Disclosing Party's sole cost and expense, a protective order or other remedy.
13.4 Injunctive Relief
Each of the parties to these Terms acknowledges that the other party will be irreparably harmed if Confidential Information of the other is distributed in breach of this Section, and that such other party would not have an adequate remedy at law in the event of such an actual or threatened breach. Therefore, each of the parties agrees that the other party shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief against any actual or threatened breaches of this Section by the other party without the necessity of showing actual damages or showing that monetary damages would not afford an adequate remedy.
14. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
14.1 Governing Law
You agree that: (i) we will be deemed solely domiciled in the State of California; and (ii) our Service will be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. These Terms will be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) ( ‘FAA’) governs the interpretation and enforcement of the Arbitration Agreement in Section 14.2 and preempts all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA is determined not to apply to any issue that arises from or relates to the Arbitration Agreement, then that issue shall be resolved under and governed by the law of your state of residence. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Francisco, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration Agreement below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Santa Clara, California is the proper and exclusive forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US. This section 14.2 (the ‘Arbitration Agreement’) applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and us that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (a) these Terms, including the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, or enforceability thereof; (b) access to or use of our Service, including receipt of any advertising, marketing, or other communications from us; (c) any transactions through, by, or using our Service; or (d) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with us, directly or indirectly, as a user or consumer (‘Claim’ or collectively, ‘Claims’). The Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your consent to these Terms.
If you are a new user, you can reject and opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement within thirty (30) days of accepting these Terms by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name and stating your intent to opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement does not affect the binding nature of any other part of these Terms, including the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any disputes must be brought.
For any Claim, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a Claim after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any Claim through binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS (the ‘Rules’), except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com, where the Rules are available. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, the Arbitration Agreement shall control. The arbitration will be conducted in the U.S. county where you live or Santa Clara, California, unless you and we agree otherwise. If you are using OrgOrg for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator will include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys' fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using OrgOrg for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and we agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, is unconscionable or illusory or any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, or estoppel.
NOTHING IN THIS SECTION WILL BE DEEMED AS PREVENTING US FROM SEEKING INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FROM THE COURTS AS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ACTUAL OR THREATENED INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION, OR VIOLATION OF OUR DATA SECURITY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR OTHER PROPRIETARY RIGHTS; OR PREVENTING YOU FROM ASSERTING CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY AND SO LONG AS THE MATTER REMAINS IN SUCH COURT AND ADVANCES ON ONLY AN INDIVIDUAL (NON-CLASS, NON-COLLECTIVE, AND NON-REPRESENTATIVE) BASIS.
IF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS FOUND TO BE VOID, UNENFORCEABLE, OR UNLAWFUL, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, THE VOID, UNENFORCEABLE, OR UNLAWFUL PROVISION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, SHALL BE SEVERED. SEVERANCE OF THE VOID, UNENFORCEABLE, OR UNLAWFUL PROVISION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, SHALL HAVE NO IMPACT ON THE REMAINING PROVISIONS OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, WHICH SHALL REMAIN IN FORCE, OR THE PARTIES’ ABILITY TO COMPEL ARBITRATION OF ANY REMAINING CLAIMS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS PURSUANT TO THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, IF THE CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER IS FOUND TO BE VOID, UNENFORCEABLE, OR UNLAWFUL, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, BECAUSE IT WOULD PREVENT YOU FROM SEEKING PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, THEN ANY DISPUTE REGARDING THE ENTITLEMENT TO SUCH RELIEF (AND ONLY THAT RELIEF) MUST BE SEVERED FROM ARBITRATION AND MAY BE LITIGATED IN A CIVIL COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. ALL OTHER CLAIMS FOR RELIEF SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION UNDER THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SHALL BE ARBITRATED UNDER ITS TERMS, AND THE PARTIES AGREE THAT LITIGATION OF ANY DISPUTE REGARDING THE ENTITLEMENT TO PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF SHALL BE STAYED PENDING THE OUTCOME OF ANY INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION.
14.3 Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED OUR SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES' INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY TO AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANT AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF ON INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED MAY NOT AFFECT OTHER USERS. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
