2. Terms & Conditions / Terms of Service
These terms of service (“TOS”) govern your access and use of our online space and community management platform. Our Services are currently available for use via an application specific to your mobile device and desktop for administrator’s content management system use (the “Services”).

Client has separately agreed to our Client Terms of Service or entered into a written agreement with us (in either case, the “Contract”) that permitted Client to create and configure a Space/Community so that you and others could join. The Contract contains our commitment to deliver the Services to Client, who may then invite Authorized Users to join its Space(s)/Community(ies). When an Authorized User submits content or information to the Services, such as messages or files (“Client Data”), you acknowledge and agree that the Client Data is owned by Client and the Contract provides Client with many choices and control over that Client Data. Please check out our web pages for more detail on our different Services plans and the options available to Client.
As between us and Client, you agree that it is solely Client’s responsibility to (a) inform Authorized Users of any relevant Client policies and practices and any settings that may impact the processing of Client Data; (b) obtain any rights, permissions or consents from Authorized Users that are necessary for the lawful use of Client Data and the operation of the Services; (c) respond to and resolve any dispute with an Authorized User relating to or based on Client Data, the Services or Client’s failure to fulfill these obligations, and (d) ensure the validity of payment processing.
