Terms of Service
(last updated February 29, 2020)
Welcome to SKU IQ. We developed this service to make it easy for you to become an omnichannel retailer and manage both your in-store and online channels as one. We hope this will free you up to focus on your own product or service, rather than the technology behind it.
SKU IQ is a product that is owned and operated by SKU IQ Inc. The Terms and Conditions below (the “Terms”) govern your access to and use of the SKU IQ services operated through the SKU IQ website at www.skuiq.com, app.skuiq.com and any other web and software properties owned or controlled by SKU IQ Inc. (collectively, the “Service”). By using the Service, you are agreeing to be bound by the Terms.
SKU IQ reserves the right to update and change the Terms from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Terms. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. You can review the most current version of the Terms at any time at https://www.skuiq.com/terms/.
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS, THEN YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICE.
Violation of any of the Terms will result in the termination of your account. You agree to use the Service at your own risk.
1. Eligibility & Account Creation
In order to use the Service, you must be the age of majority in your country and fully competent to understand and agree to the Terms. You may not use any part of the Service if you are under the age of 18, or if you have previously been removed from any part of the Service. You hereby represent and warrant to us that: (i) you have all requisite right, power, and authority to enter into these Terms and perform your obligations and grant the rights, licenses, and authorizations you grant hereunder; (ii) you and all of your subcontractors, agents, and employees will comply with all applicable laws in the performance of your obligations and exercise of your rights under these Terms; and (iii) you will not use the Service for any purpose other than as contemplated herein. If you are using or opening an account on the Service on behalf of a retailer (“Retailer”), then you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of that Retailer with the authority to bind such Retailer to the Terms, and you hereby agree on behalf of such Retailer to be bound by the Terms. In such a case, references to “you” in these Terms will apply to you, your Retailer, and any other individual user authorized to use the Service on behalf of such Retailer.
During the creation of your account, you must provide a valid email address and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process (“Login Credentials”). You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your Login Credentials and account. You agree to protect your account by guarding your Login Credentials, and to change them as soon as possible if you believe their security has been compromised. You may not disclose your Login Credentials to any third party (other than third parties authorized by you to use your account in accordance with these Terms) and are solely responsible for any use of or action taken using your Login Credentials. You also agree to notify SKU IQ Inc immediately if you believe your account has been used without your authorization. SKU IQ Inc cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
2. Your Responsibilities
You are responsible for all content posted and activity that occurs under your account (even when content is posted by others who have access to your account). You may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
In connection with your use of the Service, you hereby authorize and grant SKU IQ Inc a worldwide, nonexclusive, royalty free, fully paid, sublicensable, transferable right and license to store, index, and reproduce your trademarks and logos (“Marks”) and other content you provide through the Service for display (i) on the Service and (ii) through third-party syndication partners, including social media services (Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, etc.). We claim no other intellectual property rights over the material you provide through the Service. Your Marks, profile, and materials uploaded remain yours. SKU IQ Inc does not pre-screen content, but SKU IQ Inc and its designee have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or remove any content that is available via the Service.
Unless provided otherwise elsewhere in these Terms, you are solely responsible for all customer service issues relating to your use of the Service (including pricing, item information, and availability), order fulfillment and shipping and handling, order cancellation by you or a customer of yours, returns, refunds and adjustments, and feedback concerning experiences with your personnel, policies, or processes. In performing customer service, you will always present yourself as a separate entity from us. We may communicate with you via email, phone, text message, and any other similar technology for purposes relating to your account, or any other service we provide to you.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT SKU IQ INC SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SKU IQ INC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE.
A valid credit card is required for paying accounts. Free accounts are not required to provide a credit card number. If you initially sign up for an account, and you do not activate your subscription within the trial period, your account will be suspended and remain so until you explicitly activate your subscription by providing a valid credit card.
The Service is billed 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. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes.
For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, the credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle. Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account. SKU IQ Inc does not accept any liability for such loss.
4. Cancellation & Termination
You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. An email request to email@example.com to cancel your account is acceptable as cancellation notice at the end of the current billing cycle.
All of your content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once your account is cancelled.
If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up month, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again.
SKU IQ Inc, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other SKU IQ Inc service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account or your access to your account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all content in your account. SKU IQ Inc reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
5. Modification to the Service & Prices
SKU IQ Inc reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
