PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
This is a contract between you and BuildPlane. You must read and agree to these terms before using the BuildPlane Service. If you do not agree, you may not use the Service. You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with BuildPlane, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 18 is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. The Service is not available to any Users previously removed from the Service by BuildPlane.
Subject to your payment of Fees in accordance with this Agreement and in compliance with all other terms and conditions of this Agreement, BuildPlane hereby grants you a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use the Service during the Term, solely for your internal use as permitted by the features of the Service and not for the use or benefit of any third party. BuildPlane reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Service and the BuildPlane Content (as defined below).
Your account on the Service (your “User Account”) gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of User Accounts for different types of Users. If you open a User Account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (i) “you” includes you and that entity, and (ii) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf. You further agree that you are solely responsible for all acts and omissions associated with your access and use of the Service and the access and use of the Service by anyone on your behalf.
You may never use another User’s User Account without permission. When creating your User Account, you must provide accurate and complete information, and you must keep this information up to date. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your User Account, and you must keep your User Account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your User Account. You must notify BuildPlane immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your User Account. BuildPlane will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your User Account.
You may control your User Profile and how you interact with the Service by changing the settings in your User Profile page when you are actively logged into the Service. By providing BuildPlane your email address, you consent to our using such email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Service and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences in your User Profile. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.
You agree not to engage in any of the following prohibited activities: (i) copying, distributing, or disclosing any part of the Service in any medium, including without limitation by any automated or non-automated “scraping”; (ii) using any automated system, including without limitation “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., to access the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the BuildPlane servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser (except that BuildPlane grants the operators of public search engines revocable permission to use spiders to copy publicly available materials from the Service for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials); (iii) transmitting spam, chain letters, or other unsolicited email; (iv) attempting to interfere with, compromise the system integrity or security or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Service; (v) taking any action that imposes, or may impose at our sole discretion an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (vi) uploading invalid data, viruses, worms, or other software agents through the Service; (vii) collecting or harvesting any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service; (viii) using the Service for any commercial solicitation purposes; (ix) impersonating another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (x) interfering with the proper working of the Service; (xi) accessing any content on the Service through any technology or means other than those provided or authorized by the Service; or (xii) bypassing the measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service, including without limitation features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or enforce limitations on use of the Service or the content therein.
Access; Changes to the Service
We do not provide you with equipment to access the Service. You are responsible for all fees charged by third parties for you to access the Service (e.g., Internet access charges). We reserve the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or a part of the Service without notice. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Service, except that if we permanently discontinue the Service, we will provide you, as your sole and exclusive remedy, and our sole and exclusive liability, a pro-rated refund representing the unused (as of the date of termination) portion of any Fees that you have paid in advance.
The Service is controlled and operated from facilities in the United States. BuildPlane makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
Some areas of the Service allow Users to submit, post, display, provide, or otherwise make available content such as profile information, project information, images, documents, data, project plans, pricing and financials, comments, questions, and other content or information (any such materials a User submits, posts, displays, provides, or otherwise makes available on the Service is referred to as “User Content”). For purposes of clarity, User Content will expressly include any and all data compilations, including, without limitation, any and all compilations of Users’ purchase history and invoice data, and all data therein, generated as a result of Users’ use of the Service.

You also hereby grant each User of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your User Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such User Content as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under this Agreement.

In connection with your User Content, you affirm, represent and warrant the following:
BuildPlane takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content that you or any other User or third party posts, sends, or otherwise makes available over the Service. You shall be solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting, publishing it, sharing it, or otherwise making it available on the Service, and you agree that we are only acting as a passive conduit for your online distribution and publication of your User Content. You understand and agree that you may be exposed to User Content that is inaccurate, objectionable, inappropriate for children, or otherwise unsuited to your purpose, and you agree that BuildPlane shall not be liable for any damages you allege to incur as a result of or relating to any User Content.
Except for your User Content, the Service and all materials therein or transferred thereby, including, without limitation, software, images, text, graphics, illustrations, logos, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, and User Content belonging to other Users (the “BuildPlane Content”), and all Intellectual Property Rights related thereto, are the exclusive property of BuildPlane and its licensors (including other Users who post User Content to the Service). Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create a license in or under any such Intellectual Property Rights, and you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works from any BuildPlane Content. Use of the BuildPlane Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by this Agreement is strictly prohibited.
You may choose to or we may invite you to submit comments or ideas about the Service, including without limitation about how to improve the Service or our products (“Ideas”). By submitting any Idea, you agree that your disclosure is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction and will not place BuildPlane under any fiduciary or other obligation, and that we are free to use the Idea without any additional compensation to you, and/or to disclose the Idea on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone. You further acknowledge that, by acceptance of your submission, BuildPlane does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to BuildPlane, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
Certain aspects of the Service may be provided for a fee or other charge (collectively, “Fees”, depending on the services you are utilizing with us). If you elect to use paid aspects of the Service, you agree to our Pricing and Payment Terms, [https://buildplane.com/pricing], as we may update them from time to time. BuildPlane may add new services for additional fees and charges, add or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion. Any change to our Pricing or Payment Terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in this Agreement.
You may cancel your User Account at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation. In the event that BuildPlane suspends or terminates your User Account or this Agreement, you understand and agree that you shall receive no refund or exchange for any unused time on a subscription, any license or subscription fees for any portion of the Service, any content or data associated with your User Account, or for anything else.
THE SERVICE INCLUDES AUTOMATICALLY RECURRING PAYMENTS FOR PERIODIC CHARGES. YOU AUTHORIZE BUILDPLANE TO PERIODICALLY CHARGE, ON A GOING-FORWARD BASIS AND UNTIL CANCELLATION OF EITHER THE RECURRING PAYMENTS OR YOUR USER ACCOUNT, ALL ACCRUED SUMS ON OR BEFORE THE PAYMENT DUE DATE FOR THE ACCRUED SUMS. THE “SUBSCRIPTION BILLING DATE” IS THE DATE WHEN YOU PURCHASE YOUR FIRST SUBSCRIPTION TO THE SERVICE. YOUR USER ACCOUNT WILL BE CHARGED AUTOMATICALLY ON THE MONTHLY ANNIVERSARY OF THE SUBSCRIPTION BILLING DATE FOR ALL APPLICABLE FEES AND TAXES FOR THE PRIOR SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD. THE SUBSCRIPTION WILL CONTINUE UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL OR WE TERMINATE IT.

You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, check, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable transaction charges or taxes, if any, relating to any such purchases, transactions or other monetary transaction interactions (except for taxes based solely on our net income). We may process payments through third parties, such as credit card service providers and payment processors, and your payments through such third parties are subject to the terms and conditions of these third parties.

Overdue Fees will accrue interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or part thereof, cumulative monthly on the linked capital from the due date until the date of payment.
If you are a new User, your Service may start with a thirty (30) day free trial, subject to these Terms of Service. Free trial eligibility is determined by BuildPlane in its sole discretion, and BuildPlane reserves the right to revoke or limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse.

You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in Alabama; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Alabama. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Alabama, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Birmingham, Alabama 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 provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Birmingham, Alabama is the proper 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 BuildPlane. For any dispute with BuildPlane, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that BuildPlane has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Philadelphia, Alabama, unless you and BuildPlane agree otherwise. 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 shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing BuildPlane 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.
Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE 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.

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, and BuildPlane or its 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 this Agreement, is void.

BuildPlane may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by BuildPlane in our sole discretion. BuildPlane reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Agreement.

If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service.
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with BuildPlane in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and BuildPlane concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and BuildPlane’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
