Terms of Service

Last Updated: September 18, 2017

 

Welcome to the website for Stringify presented by Comcast Cable Communications Management, LLC (“Stringify”) located at https://www.stringify.com/ (the “Site”). Please read these Terms of Service (these “Terms”) carefully because they govern your use of our Site and our connected life control and management services accessible via our Site and our mobile device application (“App”). To make these Terms easier to read, the Site, our services and App are collectively called the “Services.”

 

Agreement to Terms

By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to these Terms, do not use the Services. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you promise that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.

 

Changes to Terms or Services

We may change the Terms at any time, at our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the updated Terms on the Site, via the App or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we change them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted updated Terms on the Site or via the App, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the updated Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then you may terminate your use of the Services at any time. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services and shall give you reasonable prior notice of such changes.

 

Who May Use the Services

You may use the Services only if you are 18 years or older (and capable of forming a binding contract with Stringify) and are not prevented from using the Services under applicable law.

 

Registration and Your Information

If you want to use certain features of the Services you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). You can do this via the Stringify iOS and android apps.

 

It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you agree to notify us immediately of any unexpected use of your Account by anyone else. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.

 

Feedback

We welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”). You grant to us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise use the Feedback for any purpose.
