Userbase is a database and backend service for web applications. By using Userbase you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions ("Terms of Service").
Please read these carefully. Violation of any of the Terms of Service may result in the termination of your account, disruption of your web applications that use Userbase, and the inaccessibility or deletion of your users’ data.
- The Service & Definitions
Userbase is a service for web application owners to add user account functionality to their web applications, such as creating new user accounts, allowing users to login, allowing users to logout, allowing users to reset their passwords, and allowing users to save and query application data. Technical support for Userbase is provided via email.
- When we say "our", "we", "us", we mean Encrypted Development LLC ("Company").
- When we say "Userbase", we mean the service being provided by the Company ("Service").
- When we say "you", "account", or "customer", we mean a customer of the Service ("Customer").
- When we say "user", or "users", we mean a user account managed by the Service for the Customer's web application ("User").
- When we say "data", or "user data", we mean any data or information inserted or uploaded by any User of the Customer's web application ("User Data").
- Account Terms
You are required to create an account and specify a password in order to use the Service.
- You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the sign-up process.
- You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Keep your password confidential. The Company cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage to you or your Users from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
- Accounts registered by "bots" or other automated methods are not permitted.
- You are responsible for the data of your Users and all activity that occurs under your account.
- You may not use the Service for any illegal purpose or to violate any applicable laws. You may not use the Service to violate the rights of any third parties, including but not limited to, intellectual property rights.
You can only use the Service by paying in advance for usage. Payments will be handled by credit card, and you may choose to pay for usage as designated in the payment screen options (e.g., monthly or yearly). The fees will be recurring unless you cancel your account as described below. If you fail to pay for usage in advance, your account will become inaccessible within 90 days of such failure, until payment is made.
Within 120 days of failure to pay, all User Data will be permanently deleted from all active systems, logs, and backups. The User Data cannot be recovered once it has been permanently deleted.
- 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. Where required, the Company will collect those taxes on behalf of taxing authority and remit those taxes to taxing authorities.
- Refunds are processed according to our refund policy.
- Account Cancellation & Deletion of User Data
- You are solely responsible for canceling your account. You can cancel your account at any time by clicking on the "Account" link in the global navigation bar at the top of the screen. The Account screen provides a simple no-questions-asked cancellation link. You may not cancel your account by sending us an email or phone request. If you do not cancel your account, the usage fee will continue to be charged to your credit card.
- Once you cancel your account, you will immediately be unable to access the Service. Within 30 days of cancellation, all User Data will be permanently deleted from all active systems, logs, and backups. The User Data cannot be recovered once it has been permanently deleted.
- If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up period, your cancellation will take effect immediately, and you will not be charged again. But there will not be any prorating of unused time from the previous billing cycle, and you will not receive any partial refund.
- Account Suspension & Termination
The Company, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account for any reason at any time. If the Company suspends or terminates your account, then the Company may provide you with a pro-rated refund for unused time in such billing cycle. However, if the Company suspends or terminates your account due to (a) your breach of these Terms of Service, (b) any acts or omissions by you that are grossly negligent or any willful misconduct, or (c) if the Company suspends or terminates services for all its customers, then such termination will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account, and/or disabling your access to your account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all the User Data in your account. No refunds will be provided. We will provide you with email notice prior to terminating your account.
Within 30 days of termination, all User Data will be permanently deleted from all active systems, logs, and backups. The User Data cannot be recovered once it has been permanently deleted.
