Please read these Terms carefully. By using the FOF Service, you are stating that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you are not permitted to use the FOF Service. If you require an Enterprise or Partner agreement, please contact us to request this option.
1. No Resale of the FOF Service
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell, or exploit for any commercial purposes any portion (except for your app designs and data, to which FOF agrees you retain all rights) of the FOF Service, use of the FOF Service, or access to the FOF Service. If you wish to pursue resale of the FOF Service, contact our sales team to discuss our Partner options.
2. Legal Use Only; No Competitors
You agree not to use the FOF Service to violate any local, state, national, or international law or regulation.

3. Ownership and Responsibility for Your Apps
FOF does not claim ownership of any information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, tags, or other materials you create, submit or make available for inclusion on or through the FOF Service (your “App Data“). As between FOF and you, you own all rights to your App Data. FOF does not review apps that you create and you agree that you are solely responsible for all of your App Data.
4. Fees and Billing
(a) User License Fees.
Each user that is registered on the FOF Service is subject to a recurring user license fee. A unique, named user login is required and no sharing of logins is allowed. A user may use their login on more than one device but not simultaneously. Simultaneous use under a single login is a violation of our terms. Sometimes there is a need to provide for a generic type login, such as for a reception area. However, that login may only be used on one device at a time and cannot be shared between devices. User license fees are charged at the rates shown in the store of the FOF website.
(b) Subscription and Service Fees.
Any additional subscriptions and/or services, such as professional services (“Pro Services”), that you select are provided at the rates set forth in the Store of the FOF website.
(c) Invoicing and Automatic Renewal.
FOF charges on the first day of every month in advance for all existing users and services enabled on your account. We will promptly generate invoices for this billing and will charge your registered credit card on the invoice due date. Your FOF licenses, subscription and/or services will automatically renew on the first day of each month until you cancel your account, which is done by emailing our support team.
(d) Value Added Tax, Sales Tax and Other Amounts.
Unless otherwise expressly stated, all fees are exclusive of local value added tax, sales tax, other taxes, duties and charges imposed or levied in connection with these Terms (“Taxes”). FOF will add any such applicable Taxes to your invoices as required by prevailing legislation. Without limiting the foregoing, you will be liable for any new Taxes imposed or levied in any relevant jurisdiction subsequent to commencing your FOF Service account.
(e) Fee Review.
FOF may periodically review fees, at which point FOF may increase or amend any such fee. Such reviews will occur no more than once within a continuous 12 month period. Where there is any net increase in the fees payable, FOF shall give no less than 30 days written notice to you of such increase.
5. Professional Services
You may purchase professional consulting or training services (“Pro Services”) from FOF to assist in your design for the FOF Service. You remain the “data controller” in this relationship, authorizing our personal to design on your behalf only. As a result of Pro Services delivered under these Terms, FOF may generate ideas, inventions, suggestions, copyrightable materials or other information (“Intellectual Property”) which fall into one of two categories:
a. Intellectual Property specifically related to the subject matter of FOF’s efforts under these Terms, and directly related to, or incorporated into, the work product to be produced by FOF and delivered to you under these Terms.

FOF grants and you hereby accept, a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, EXCLUSIVE license to use all such Intellectual Property as incorporated into the FOF work product; and
b. Intellectual Property of general applicability, whether or not related to, or incorporated into, the work product to be produced by FOF and delivered to you under these Terms. Title to Intellectual Property described in this paragraph, including any Intellectual Property developed by FOF prior to or outside of these Terms, shall remain in FOF. To the extent such Intellectual Property is incorporated into work product to be produced by FOF and delivered to you, FOF grants and you hereby accept, a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, NON-EXCLUSIVE license to use all such Intellectual Property as incorporated into the FOF work product.
6. Payment of FOF Fees

You agree that if your payment is not received by the invoice due date, for any reason, FOF may suspend or cancel your FOF subscription.
7. Making changes to your account
If you choose to downgrade, upgrade or otherwise change your FOF users, services or subscriptions, this may cause the loss of or addition to features or capacity on your account.
