2. USING OUR SERVICES

If You are entering into this TOS on behalf of a company or other legal entity, You represent that You have the legal authority to bind the legal entity to this TOS, in which case “You” or “Your” means that entity. If You do not have this authority, or if You do not agree with the terms and conditions of this TOS, and You may not use the Service or any Service-related materials. You represent that you are 18 years of age, or of the age of majority in your place of residence or jurisdiction.

You agree to:

Speak Ai Inc. may suspend or terminate your access to the Service or an Order if You do not comply with this TOS or if we suspect misconduct, fraudulent activities or payment, or a violation of this TOS, with or without notice. We reserve the right to investigate and take appropriate legal action in our sole discretion against anyone who violates these Terms. We have the right to cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Platform. You waive and hold harmless speak ai inc. And its affiliates, licensees and service providers from any claims resulting from any action taken by any of the foregoing parties during, or taken as a consequence of, investigations by either such parties or law enforcement authorities.

However, we do not undertake to review any material before it is uploaded to or posted on the Platform, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor, edit or remove content that we determine in our sole discretion is unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene, or otherwise objectionable or violates any party’s intellectual property or these Terms of Service in any way.  Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section. Speak Ai Inc. may modify or suspend the Platform or Service at any time for any reason. 

3. ORDERS, APPROVAL, RETURN POLICY

Account and Credits. Before initiating an Order, You must first register as a Customer and create a Speak Ai Inc. account. You will be required to provide personal and/or demographic information as part of a registration or login process and to create an account. You agree to keep all account information updated and accurate at all times.  Speak Ai Inc. may refuse to grant You, and You may not use, a username (or email address) or screen name that is already being used by someone else, that may be construed as impersonating another person, that belongs to another person, that violates the intellectual property or other rights of any person, that is offensive, or that Speak Ai Inc. rejects for any other reason in its sole discretion. Any personal information You provide will be subject to the Speak Ai Inc. Privacy Policy.

If You choose, or are provided with a username, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, You must treat such information as confidential. You are responsible for all activity occurring when the Services are accessed through your account, whether authorized by You or not. We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your password or Account information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. We have the right to disable any username, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by You or provided by us, at any time at our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms of Service.

Payment. Before initiating an Order, Customer must buy sufficient Speak Ai Inc. credits for the Services you desire to purchase. Speak Ai Inc. credits are non-refundable. Speak Ai Inc. will apply gross-up calculation to the payment. This means that the payment to Speak Ai Inc. must be made in cleared funds, without any deduction or set-off and free and clear of and without deduction for or on account of any taxes, levies, imports, duties, charges, fees and withholdings of any nature now or hereafter imposed by any governmental, fiscal or other authority save as required by law. If you are compelled to make any such deduction, you will pay Speak Ai Inc. any additional amounts as are necessary to ensure receipt by Speak Ai Inc. of the full amount it would have received but for the deduction. We may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill You through a payment account linked to your Account (your “Billing Account”). The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement.

Customer will be responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases, except for those taxes based on our net income.

Order. Customer can initiate an Order by providing all the required information via the Platform.

Client Materials. Customer is responsible for providing the Client Materials to be transcribed, materials describing the context of the translation, and all other necessary materials (glossary guide, etc.) when placing the Order.
