Terms & Conditions

1 Acceptance of Terms

1.1 DocketMan, Inc (referred to here as “Docketman”) provides its Service (as defined below) to You through its web site located at www.docketman.com (the “Site”), subject to this Terms of Service agreement (“TOS”). By accepting this TOS or by accessing or using the Service or Site, You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this TOS. If You are entering into this TOS on behalf of a company or other legal entity, You represent that You have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these TOS, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates. If You do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these TOS, You must not accept these TOS and may not use the Service.

1.2 DocketMan may change this TOS from time to time without prior notice. You can review the most current version of this TOS at any time at http://www.DocketMan.com/terms. The revised terms and conditions will become effective upon posting and if You use the Service after that date, we will treat your use as acceptance of the revised terms and conditions. If any change to this TOS is not acceptable to You, your only remedy is to stop accessing and using the Service.

2 Description of Service

2.1 The “Service” includes (a) the Site, (b) the on-demand DocketMan system, tools and services provided through the Site, and (c) all software, data, text, images, sounds, video, and content made available through the Site or services (collectively referred to as the “Content”). Any new features added to or augmenting the Service are also subject to this TOS.

3 General Conditions / Access and User of the Service

3.1 Subject to the terms and conditions of this TOS, You may access and use the Service only for your internal business purposes as contemplated by the Agreement.

You shall not modify, adapt or hack the Service to falsely imply any sponsorship or association with DocketMan, or otherwise attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.

Docketman imposes certain restrictions on your permissible use of the Site and the Service. You are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate any security features of the Site or Service, including, without limitation, (a) accessing content or data not intended for you, or logging onto a server or account that you are not authorized to access; (b) attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of the Service, the Site, or any associated system or network, or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization; (c) interfering or attempting to interfere with service to any user, host, or network, including, without limitation, by means of submitting a virus to the Site or Service, overloading, “flooding,” “spamming,” “mail bombing,” “crashing;” or “distributed denial of service” (DDOS) attacks; (d) using the Site or Service to send unsolicited e-mail, including, without limitation, promotions, or advertisements for products or services; (e) forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any e-mail or in any posting using the Service; or (f) attempting to modify, reverse-engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reduce or attempt to reduce to a human-perceivable form any of the source code used by DocketMan in providing the Site or Service. Any violation of system or network security may subject you to civil and/or criminal liability.

3.3 You are responsible for all information, data, text, messages or other materials that You post or otherwise transmit via the Service. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login and account and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your login or account. You agree and acknowledge that your login may only be used by one (1) person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. You may create separate logins for as many people as your plan allows. Docketman reserves the right to access any or all your accounts in order to respond to your requests for technical support.

You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You may not use the account, username, or password of someone else at any time. You agree to notify DocketMan immediately of any unauthorized use of your account, user name, or password. Docketman shall not be liable for any loss that you incur as a result of someone else using your password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by Docketman, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, and representatives due to someone else’s use of your account or password.

3.5 The failure of DocketMan to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this TOS shall not be a waiver of that right. You acknowledge that this TOS is a contract between You and DocketMan, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and DocketMan, and it governs your use of the Service and takes the place of any prior agreements between You and Docketman.

4 Trademarks

4.1 DocketMan and DocketMan’s various logos used or displayed on the Service are trademarks of DocketMan and you may only use these trademarks or logos for promotional purposes to identify yourself as a customer or user of the Docketman products and services, provided you do not attempt to claim ownership of the marks by incorporating any of them within your names or offerings.

5 Payment and Refunds

5.1 The Service is made available on a pay-as-you-go basis. All plans come with an initial 30-day free trial period. If You do not provide your credit card details to DocketMan within the 30-day free trial period, your account will be suspended and can only be reactivated by submitting your credit card information. If You have provided credit card details before the end of your 30-day trial and have elected to continue with a paid plan, You will be billed monthly starting on the 30th day after your account was initially created. You also have the option of being billed for the Service in advance on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis, in which case the difference in the upgrade price will be prorated on your first bill. Regardless of your billing cycle, there are 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. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle. Downgrading your account may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account. Docketman does not accept any liability for such loss. Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly fees to the Service, are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us. Such notice may be provided at any time. In addition, special pricing may apply for customers with an exceptionally high number of end-users or an unusually high monthly ticket ratio per agent.

5.2 DocketMan provides an interface for the account owner (as defined in the sign-up procedure) to change credit card information (e.g., upon card renewal). The account owner will receive an email receipt upon each credit card charge. The receipts are also available for the account owner from within the application. Docketman uses a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing and this intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use your billing information except to process your credit card information for Docketman. Please visit http://www.DocketMan.com/privacy to understand how DocketMan collects and uses personal information. DocketMan’s privacy policy is expressly incorporated into this Agreement by this reference.

6 Cancellation and Termination

6.1 You are responsible for properly cancelling your account. The account owner (as defined in the sign-up procedure) can cancel the account at any time by clicking on the Account link in the global navigation bar at the top of the screen. There are no other means of cancelling your account. 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.

6.2 DocketMan reserves the right to (i) modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) and (ii) refuse any and all current and future use of the Service, suspend or terminate your account (any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any of your content in the Service, for any reason, including, if DocketMan believes that You have violated these TOS. Docketman will use best efforts to publish on the Site or notify You about any planned downtime of the Service, and will use all reasonable efforts to contact you directly via email to warn you prior to suspension or termination of your account. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Docketman shall not be liable to You or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of the Service.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT DOCKETMAN DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE OR VIRUS-FREE AND NO INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU FROM DOCKETMAN OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS TOS.

8 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

8.1 UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL DOCKETMAN BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION. IN ADDITION, DOCKETMAN SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES, COSTS, LOSSES OR LIABILITIES IN EXCESS OF THE MONTHLY SERVICE FEE PAID OR PAYABLE BY YOU FOR THE ONE MONTH PRECEDING THE TIME OF ANY CLAIM FOR MONETARY DAMAGES OR ONE HUNDRED ($100) U.S. DOLLARS. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THIS TOS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.

8.2 Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to you. IN THESE STATES, DOCKETMAN’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

8.3 INDEMNITY. You agree to indemnify DocketMan for certain of your acts and omissions. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless DocketMan, its partners, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, and representatives from any and all third party claims, losses, liability, damages, and/or costs (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) arising from your access to or use of the Site, your violation of these Terms of Use, or your infringement, or infringement by any other user of your account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity. Docketman will notify you promptly of any such claim, loss, liability, or demand, and will provide you with reasonable assistance, at your expense, in defending any such claim, loss, liability, damage, or cost.
