1.1 Your use of Authgear is governed by this agreement (the “Terms”). “Authgear” means Oursky Limited, located at 10B, Great Wall Industry Building, Cheung Shun St, Cheung Sha Wan, Hong Kong, and its subsidiaries or affiliates involved in providing Authgear Services. “Authgear Services” refers to the services Authgear makes available through this website, including this website, the Authgear Developer Portal, the Authgear API, the Authgear Plugins, and any other software or services offered by Authgear in connection to any of those.
1.2 In order to use Authgear Services, you must first agree to the Terms. You can agree to the Terms by actually using Authgear Services. You understand and agree that Authgear will treat your use of Authgear Services as acceptance of the Terms from that point onward.
1.3 You may not use Authgear Services if you are a person barred from receiving Authgear Services under the laws of the United States or other countries, including the country in which you are a resident of or from which you use Authgear Services. You affirm that you are over the age of 13, as Authgear Services are not intended for children under 13.
1.4 You agree that your purchase of Authgear Services is not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or feature, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Authgear or any of its affiliates regarding future functionalities or features.
2. Your Account and Use of Authgear Services
2.1 You must provide accurate and complete registration information when you register to use Authgear Services. You are responsible for the security of your passwords and any use of your account. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or your account, you agree to notify Authgear immediately.
2.2 Your use of Authgear Services must comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and ordinances, including any law regarding the export of data or software.
2.3 You agree not to (a) access (or attempt to access) the administrative interface of Authgear Services by any means other than through the interface that provided by Authgear in connection with Authgear Services, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Authgear; and (b) engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts Authgear Services (or the servers and networks which are connected to the Service).
2.4 Your account has “hard” and “soft” usage limits, as further explained here (or such URL as Authgear may provide). Authgear Services does not permit you to exceed the hard usage limits. Authgear reserves the right to enforce soft usage limits in its sole discretion, which may result in Authgear serving a page indicating “quota exceeded” page or “services temporarily not available” to you or users whom you serve webpages to via the Authgear Services (“End Users”). Repeatedly exceeding the hard or soft usage limits may lead to termination of your account.
2.5 You may use the Authgear Services only to develop and run applications on the Authgear infrastructure. You may not access or use Authgear Services for the purpose of bringing an intellectual property infringement claim against Authgear or creating a product or service that competes with Authgear Services.
3. Service Policies and Privacy
3.1 You agree to comply with the Authgear Acceptable Use Policy (the “Acceptable Use Policy”) which is incorporated herein and may be updated from time to time.
3.3 You agree that you will protect the privacy and legal rights of the End Users of your application. You must provide legally adequate privacy notice and protection for End Users. If End Users provide you with user names, passwords, or other log-in information or personal information, you must make the users aware that the information will be available to your application and to Authgear.
4. Fees for Use of the Authgear Services
4.1 Subject to the Terms, Authgear Services is provided to you without charge up to certain limits. Usage over this limit requires your purchase of additional resources or services. The pricing for additional resources and services can be found at http:s//authgear.com/pricing (or any such URL as Authgear may provide).
4.2 For all purchased resources and services, we will charge your credit card on a monthly basis or otherwise at the interval indicated in Authgear fees and payment policies. Late payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or, if indicated as less, the highest rate permitted by law). Charges are exclusive of taxes. You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges, and all reasonable expenses and attorneys' fees Authgear incurs collecting late payments. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect your credit card issuer rights). Charges are solely based on Authgear’s measurements of your use of Authgear Services, unless otherwise agreed to in writing. To the fullest extent permitted by law, refunds (if there are any) are at the discretion of Authgear and only in the form of credit for Authgear Services. Nothing in these Terms obligates Authgear to extend credit to any party. You acknowledge and agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide to Authgear may be shared by Authgear with companies who work on Authgear’s behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to Authgear, and servicing your account. Authgear may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants, and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. Authgear shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties. Authgear reserves the right to discontinue the provision of Authgear Services to you for any late payments.
4.3 Authgear may change its fees and payment policies for Authgear Services by notifying you at least fifteen (15) days before the beginning of the billing cycle in which such change will take effect. Changes to the fees or payment policies will be posted on the website (or any other URL Authgear may provide from time to time). Any outstanding balance becomes immediately due and payable upon termination of the Terms for any reason.
4.4 You may not develop multiple Applications to simulate or act as a single Application or otherwise access Authgear Services in a manner intended to avoid incurring fees.
