Terms of Service
Thank you for using Disco Droid.
Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully. By using Disco Droid, signing up for our email list, or signing up for an account, you’re agreeing to these terms, which will result in a legal agreement between you and Disco Droid (“Agreement”). Disco Droid LLC (“Disco Droid”, “we”, or “us”) is an online data science company that provides reports on construction and real estate activity at a local and national level (“Reports”). We will collectively refer to our website (https://www.discodroid.ai), emails, social media postings, and Reports as the “Service.” As a customer of the Service, or a representative of an organization or entity that is a customer of the Service, you are a “User” according to this Agreement (or “you”).
If you have any questions about our Terms, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Your User Account
1.1 You must provide accurate information when you create your Disco Droid account, and complete the account registration process.
1.2 You must provide true, complete, and up-to-date contact and billing information.
1.3 You are responsible for safeguarding the password and for all activities that occur under your account. You should notify us immediately if you become aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.
1.4 You may not use another user’s account without permission.
1.6 You (and your Organization) must be based in the United States. You must not be listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted persons.

1.8 Disco Droid may refuse service, close accounts of any Users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
2.1 When you use our Service and agree to these Terms, the Agreement between you and Disco Droid is formed, and the term of the Agreement will begin. The term will continue for as long as you use the Disco Droid Service, or until you or we terminate the Agreement in accordance with these Terms, whichever happens first.
3. Closing Your Account
3.1 You or Disco Droid may terminate the Agreement at any time and for any reason by closing your Disco Droid account or giving notice to the other party. We may suspend the Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, and your account is a paid account, we’ll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment for a Monthly Plan. We won’t refund or reimburse you in any other situation, including if your account is suspended or terminated for cause, such as for a breach or violation of the Agreement. Once your account is terminated, you acknowledge and agree that we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your Reports.
4.1 We may change any of the Terms by posting revised Terms on our Disco Droid website (https://www.discodroid.ai/terms). Unless you terminate your account, the new Terms will be effective immediately upon posting and apply to any continued or new use of the Service. We may change or discontinue the Service or any features of the Service at any time.
5. Account and Password
5.1 You are responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to and any activity occurring in such account (other than activity that Disco Droid is directly responsible for that isn’t performed in accordance with your instructions), whether or not you authorized that activity. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized access or use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only provide you with instructions on how to reset your password. We have the right to update any of your contact information in your account for billing purposes. In addition, you represent and warrant that all information you provide to us when you establish an account, and when you access and use the Service, is and will remain complete and accurate.

By default, customer accounts are set to auto-renew and we may automatically charge you for such renewal on or after the renewal date associated with your account unless you have cancelled the Service prior to its renewal date. We may revise fee rates for the Service from time to time and will provide you with email notice of any changes in fees at least thirty (30) days prior to your Service renewal date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to Disco Droid. We may suspend or terminate your use of the Service if fees become past due. You are responsible for all taxes (excluding taxes on our net income), and we will charge tax if required to do so by law.

You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including legal fees and expenses, that directly or indirectly result from (i) your use of the Service, (ii) your violation of any laws or regulations, (iii) third-party claims that you or someone using your password did something that, if true, would violate any of these Terms, (iv) any misrepresentations made by you, or (v) a breach of any representations or warranties you’ve made to us.

12. Subpoena Fees
12.1 If we have to provide information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other legal, governmental, or regulatory inquiry related to your account, then we may charge you for our costs. These fees may include attorney and employee time spent retrieving the records, preparing documents, and participating in a deposition.
13.1 All disputes relating to this Agreement will be settled by arbitration conducted pursuant to the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association in Atlanta, Georgia. Judgment on the arbitral award is final and binding and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The foregoing does not apply to Disco Droid to the extent it wishes to seek equitable relief for any violation by you.

20.1 If any provision of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be removed or edited as little as possible, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
21.1 If we don’t immediately take action on a violation of these Terms, we’re not giving up any rights under the Terms, and we may still take action at some point.
22. No Changes in Terms
22.1 Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify the Terms. We will not change these terms for any one user or group.
23. Notification of Security Incident
23.1 If we become aware of a security incident related to our systems or databases that contain personal information of you or your contacts, we’ll notify you if required by law. In that event, we’ll also provide you with information about that incident so that you can evaluate the consequences to you and any legal or regulatory requirements that may apply to you, unless we’re prevented from doing so by legal, security or confidentiality obligations. Notifying you of a security incident or cooperating with you to respond to one will not be deemed an acknowledgement or assumption of any liability or fault of Mailchimp for such incident.
24.1 Any notice to you will be effective when we send it to the last phone number, email, or physical address you gave us. Any notice to us will be effective when delivered to us: Disco Droid, Attn: Legal Department, 741 Monroe Drive NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30308, or any addresses as we may later post on the Disco Droid website.
