FreeBusy Terms of Use

Last updated: February 2, 2017

Welcome and thank you for using FreeBusy Scheduling Assistant! FreeBusy Scheduling Assistant (the “Service”) allows you to quickly schedule meetings with people inside and outside your company and to easily publish your calendar availability to your business partners, friends, and family. These terms of service (the “Terms”) are an agreement between you and BizLogr, Inc. d/b/a FreeBusy (“FreeBusy”, “We”, “Us” or “Our”) and govern your access to and use of the Service as well as the FreeBusy website.

Please read these Terms carefully.

By using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Service on behalf of another entity (such as your employer), you are agreeing to these Terms for that entity, and you promise that you have the authority to do so. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that entity. If you do not agree to these terms, do not use the Service.

Setting Up the Service

In order to access and use the Service, you must connect FreeBusy to your Internet calendar (e.g. Microsoft Office 365 or Google Calendar). Doing so will create a FreeBusy account (“Account”).

Privacy and Security

Privacy

FreeBusy collects certain information about you as a part of providing the Service. This information includes but is not limited to your name, e-mail address, physical address, and information from contact lists and Internet calendars that you link to the Service (collectively “Your Information”). We will handle Your Information according to the terms of the FreeBusy Privacy Policy. The terms of the Privacy Policy are included in and form a part of these Terms.

Security

We take safeguarding Your Information very seriously. We use generally-accepted, industry-standard administrative, physical and technical measures designed to protect Your Information from unauthorized access, both during transmission and once We receive it, as described in Security Overview. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic data storage, is completely secure. Therefore, while We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your Information, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.

You Own Your Information

You retain full ownership and control of Your Information. Except for the limited permissions set forth below that We need in order to provide the Service to you, We do not claim any rights to Your Information. By setting up an Account, you give Us permission, solely for the purposes of performing the Service, to: (i) access Your Information; (ii) store Your Information on Our systems (and/or those of Our hosting vendor); and (iii) do those things required in order to administer and provide the Service to you. These permissions also extend to trusted third parties that We work with in order to provide the Service, but again, solely for the purposes of providing the Service to you.

You are responsible for maintaining a backup of Your Information. We will not be responsible or liable for any:

  • loss or corruption of Your Information; or
  • costs or expenses associated with backing up or restoring any of Your Information.

We have no obligation to keep, and may delete Your Information after your Account has been closed.

Acceptable Use of the Service

You agree not to:

  • Upload, store, access or transmit any information or content: (i) that you do not have the lawful right to copy, transmit, distribute, or display; (ii) that is false or misleading; (iii) that is defamatory; (iv) that is obscene, pornographic, or offensive; (v) that promotes bigotry, racism, hatred, or harm against any individual or group; or (vi) that violates, or encourages any conduct that would violate, any applicable law or regulation or would give rise to civil liability;

FreeBusy Software, Content and Feedback

The Service may include client software (the “Software”) that may be downloaded on devices that you use in order to access and use the Service. The following terms apply to your use of the Software.

License Grant

FreeBusy hereby grants you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable, worldwide right and license to install and use the Software solely to access and use the Service. You may use the Software on any device within your possession and control that you use to access the Service for your own use. Your license to use the Software automatically terminates if you materially violate these Terms or your Account is terminated.

Except as expressly set forth in the license grant above, these Terms do not grant you any right, title, or interest in the Service or the Software.

The Software and other technology FreeBusy uses to provide the Service are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws in the United States and foreign countries. These Terms do not grant you any rights to use FreeBusy’s trademarks, logos, domain names, or other brand features.

Updates and Upgrades

The Service may update or upgrade the Software on your device automatically when a new version is available. Software updates and upgrades are governed by these Terms unless other terms accompany the updates or upgrades.

U.S. Government End Users

The Software and any related documentation are “commercial items” as that term is defined in FAR 2.101, consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” respectively, as such terms are used in FAR 12.212 and DFARS 227.7202.

Feedback

FreeBusy welcomes your feedback, comments and suggestions for improving the Service (“Feedback”). However, you understand and agree that if you provide FreeBusy with Feedback, FreeBusy will be free to use and exploit that feedback in any manner without restriction of any kind and without any need to compensate you.

Modifications and Scheduled Maintenance

We perform system maintenance on a regular basis to help ensure high-quality of service. We use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Service is available for use during this time. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to perform all maintenance during Our pre-scheduled maintenance windows. The scheduled maintenance window is currently between 10:00 p.m. Friday and 2:00 a.m. Saturday, U.S. Pacific Standard Time.

Payment

Fees

The Service is offered as a subscription with several plans: a free plan offered at no charge, and several paid plans offered for a fee. The applicable fees for each plan are set forth in the FreeBusy Pricing Guide.

Payments

To subscribe to the Service on a paid plan, We require payment by credit card in advance of providing the Service. We use a third party payment processing service and do not collect or store your credit card information. By subscribing to a paid plan, you authorize us to charge your credit card on a recurrent basis, either monthly (once per 1-month period) or anually (once per 1-year period) starting with the date when you subscribed to the paid plan.

Cancellation

You may request the cancellation of a paid plan at any time, by writing to Us at hello@freebusy.io. By requesting a cancellation, future recurring charges will be stopped. Fees paid prior to the cancellation request are non-refundable, either in part, or whole. However, We will work with you to resolve any reasonable and good-faith disputes. After you request a cancellation, Service will continue to be provided as the paid plan through the last day of your currently paid period. After the last day of your currently paid period you will be switched to the free plan and Service will be provided to you at that level.

Taxes

Our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your purchases hereunder. If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which you are responsible under this paragraph, the appropriate amount will be invoiced to and paid by you. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income, property and employees.

Termination

By You

You can close your Account at any time. Closing your Account will trigger the cancellation of your subscription under the terms described above.

By FreeBusy

We can discontinue or change the Service at any time. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify you if We decide to do so. Discontinuing the Service will trigger the cancellation of your subscription under the terms described above.

Warranty and Disclaimers

THE SERVICE AND SOFTWARE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, FREEBUSY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY. THESE INCLUDE THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. FREEBUSY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT: (I) THE USE OR QUALITY OF THE SERVICE OR SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, TIMELY, SECURE OR MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATIONS; (II) THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM USE OF THE SERVICE OR SOFTWARE WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE; OR (III) ANY ERRORS IN THE SERVICE OR SOFTWARE WILL BE CORRECTED. THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICE AND SOFTWARE REMAINS WITH YOU.

Limitation of Liability

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL FREEBUSY, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. THIS INCLUDES DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF CONFIDENTIAL OR OTHER INFORMATION OR DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, PERSONAL INJURY, LOSS OF PRIVACY, FAILURE TO MEET ANY DUTY, NEGLIGENCE, AND ANY OTHER PECUNIARY OR OTHER LOSS WHATSOEVER. THESE LIMITATIONS APPLY REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES WERE REASONABLY FORESEEABLE OR A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. FREEBUSY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE SERVICE OR THE SOFTWARE SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF $5 OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO FREEBUSY FOR THE SERVICE FOR THE PAST THREE MONTHS. Some states do not allow the types of limitations in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.

Modifications

We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on the FreeBusy website. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify you if a revision, in Our sole discretion, is material. Such notice may be by email to the email address associated with your Account. You agree to be bound by the revised Terms by continuing to access or use the Service after the revisions become effective. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.

Miscellaneous Legal Terms

These Terms and the use of the Service and Software are governed by Washington Law without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Service, or the Software must be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts located in King County, Washington and you consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and FreeBusy with respect to the Service and Software, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms or conditions applicable to the Service and Software. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights. FreeBusy’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 Agreement will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted to reflect the original intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void. However, FreeBusy may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to a successor in interest. FreeBusy and you are independent contractors and not legal partners or agents.
