Terms of Service
Last Updated: 1 April 2017
Acknowledgement and Acceptance of Terms
If you do not agree, do not use the Service.
We reserve the right to change the Terms of Service from time to time. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review the Terms of Service periodically to learn of any modifications. Your continued access or use of the Services after such posting constitutes your consent to be bound by the modified Terms of Service.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, RIS grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferrable license to: (i) access and use the Applications on your personal device solely in connection with your use of the Services; and (ii) access and use any content, information and related materials that may be made available through the Services, in each case solely for your personal, noncommercial use. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by RIS and RIS’s licensors.
Open Source and Other Third Party Software
The Software may contain or be accompanied by software code provided by third parties (“Third Party Software”) that is subject to separate license terms (the “Third Party Terms”), and not any license contained in these Terms. Your use of the Third Party Software in conjunction with the Service in a manner consistent with the Terms is permitted. However, you may have broader rights under the applicable Third Party Terms and nothing in these Terms is intended to impose further restrictions on your use of the Third Party Software. You can find certain required notices and other information regarding Third Party Software at http://rapidimaging.net/third-party-software.
You must be at least 18 years of age to use the Service. By agreeing to these Terms, you represent and warrant to us that:
(a) you are at least 18 years old;
(b) you have not previously been suspended or removed from the Service;
(c) you are not a member of any military or armed forces organization;
(d) you have not previously been convicted of a crime or violated any FAA or other aviation regulation; and
(e) your registration and your use of the Service is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
If you are using the Service on behalf of an entity, organization, or company, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms and you agree to be bound by these Terms on behalf of that organization.
You are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with all applicable legal requirements for the operation of any aircraft, including any requirement that you detect and avoid other aircrafts. You must at all times comply with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations related to the operation of unmanned aerial devices and your use of the Service in your territory of operation, including any applicable laws with regard to privacy. You will obtain and maintain all necessary licenses, consent, and authorizations of any kind.
Your Privacy Responsibilities
You understand that by using the Service, you are given access to drone imagery for your information and personal use solely as intended through the provided functionality of the Service and as permitted under these Terms. You are solely responsible for your own User Content and the consequences of posting your User Content on the Service, including your use of the Service that results in a violation of any individual’s or organization’s privacy rights.
You agree that we may, at any time, and at our sole discretion, terminate your account or suspend or prohibit your access to the Service without prior notice to you for violating any of the Terms of Service or for any other reason whatsoever. Upon termination of your use of the Service, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
You may terminate your account at any time by contacting customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you terminate your account, you remain obligated to pay all outstanding fees, if any, relating to your use of the Service incurred prior to termination.
Accounts and Registration
In order to use the Service, you must register for an account. You agree that the information you provide to us when registering is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up-to-date at all times. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. If you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure, then you must immediately notify us at email@example.com.
Ownership; Proprietary Rights
The Service is owned and operated by RIS. The visual interfaces, graphics, design, compilation, information, data, computer code (including source code or object code), products, software, services, and all other elements of the Service (“Materials”) provided by RIS are protected by intellectual property and other laws. Except as expressly authorized by RIS, you may not make use of the Materials. In addition, we will own any and all right, title, and interest in and to any feedback, suggestions, information, or materials you convey to us related to the Service in connection with your use of the Service ("Feedback"). You hereby assign to RIS all right, title, and interest in such Feedback.
Billing and Payment
Access to the Service requires you to purchase a subscription and to pay our automatically recurring monthly or annually access fees. Access to certain features of the Service may require you to pay additional fees.
All paid plans must enter a valid payment account. For monthly payment plans, the Service is billed automatically in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
More information about Billing and Payment are available at http://rapidimaging.net/payment.
User Content Generally
Certain features of the Service may permit users to generate or post content, including messages, reviews, video, maps, models, folders, data, text, photographs, images, and data gathered by a Drone or Device, (collectively, “User Content”). You retain copyright and any other proprietary rights that you may hold in the User Content that you post to the Service.
User Content License Grant
To reiterate from the paragraph above, you own all of the User Content you post or submit on the Service. By using the Service, you grant a non-exclusive, irrevocable, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your User Content. [For example, we need these rights in order to process, store and display your data so you can view it on dronedeploy.com and in the app, as well as to provide you support.] By publicly sharing User Content, you hereby grant to other users of the Service a non-exclusive license to access and use such User Content as permitted by these Terms and the functionality of the Service.
Rapid Imaging Software may provide tools through the Service that enable you to export information, including User Content, to third party services (such as Twitter). By using one of these tools, you agree that we may transfer that information to the applicable third-party service. Third party services are not under our control, and we are not responsible for any third party service’s use of your exported information.
User Content Representations and Warranties
You are solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting or publishing User Content. By posting and publishing User Content, you represent, and warrant that: you are the creator and owner of, or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and to authorize Drone Deploy and users of the Service to use and distribute your User Content; and your User Content, and the use thereof as contemplated herein, does not and will not: (i) infringe any third-party right, including any intellectual property, privacy or proprietary right; or (ii) slander, defame, libel, or invade the right of privacy, publicity or other property rights of any other person.
User Content Disclaimer
We are under no obligation to edit or control User Content that you or other users post or publish, and will not be in any way responsible or liable for User Content. Rapid Imaging Software may, however, at any time and without prior notice, screen, remove, edit, or block any User Content that in our sole judgment violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable. You agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against Drone Deploy with respect to User Content.
