Konector Terms and Conditions
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Konector Ltd. ("Konector") welcomes you. Konector provides its printed reports and subscription based service to you subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at: http://www.konector.com/terms. In addition, when using particular Konector owned or operated services, you and Konector shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services, which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS. Konector may also offer other services that are governed by different Terms of Service.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
Konector provides customers with printed reports (“Reports”) and/or access to a rich collection of resources, including but not limited to, various software applications, site profile services, search analytics, audience and advertising analytics, and member programs, such as, but not limited to surveys and opinion polls (the "Service"). You also understand and agree that the Service may include certain communications from Konector, such as service announcements, administrative messages and survey invitations and that these communications are considered part of Konector membership. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new Konector properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that Konector assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
YOUR REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS
In consideration of your use of the Service, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the European Union or other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Konector has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Konector has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).
CONDITIONS RELATING TO THE SALE OF REPORTS TO YOU
This section deals with conditions relating to the sale of the Reports by Konector to you.
When you place an order to purchase a Report from Konector, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase the Report which is accepted by us when we send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched the Report to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the Dispatch Confirmation E-mail to you. Any Reports on the same order which we have not confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation E-mail to have been dispatched do not form part of that contract.
By law, customers in the European Union also have the right to withdraw from the purchase of an item within seven working days of the day after the date the item is delivered.
To cancel your purchase within the seven-working-day cooling-off period, please package the Report securely and send it to us at Konector Ltd, Chandos Court, 61 Haverstock Hil, NW3 4SN, London, United Kingdom within 14 days following the date that the item was delivered to you. For your protection, we recommend that you use a recorded-delivery service.
Please note that you will be responsible for the costs of returning the items to us unless we delivered the item to you in error, or if the item is damaged or defective. If we do not receive the item back from you with the delivery slip, we may arrange for collection of the item from your office at your cost.
As soon as we receive notice of your cancellation of this order, we will refund the relevant part of the purchase price for that. For more information on your right to withdraw from your purchase within the seven working day cooling-off period, visit the Department of Trade and Industry's website at: http://www.dti.gov.uk/consumers/buying-selling/distance-selling/index.html
When ordering Reports from Konector for delivery overseas you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from Konector, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. Your privacy is important to us and we know that you care about how information about your order is used and shared. We would like our international customers and customers dispatching products internationally to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
CONDITIONS RELATING TO THE SALE OF SERVICES TO YOU
This section deals with conditions relating to the sale of Services by Konector to you.
You will be entitled to receive the Service only during the subscription period ("Subscription Period") specified in your billing form ("Billing Form"). Monthly subscriptions will automatically renew on a month-to-month basis until cancelled by you. Each month during the Subscription Period, you will be entitled to access only the number of reports specified in the Billing Form ("Monthly Allotment"). You will not be able to carry over to a subsequent month any unused portion of your Monthly Allotment as the unused Monthly Allotment will expire at the end of the associated month.
You agree to pay Konector the subscription fee specified in the Billing Form during the Subscription Period ("Subscription Fee"). A valid credit card is required to subscribe to the Service. The Subscription Fee is payable in advance for the Subscription Period. Your subscription is on a month-to-month basis, then you will automatically be charged the Subscription Fee for the subsequent month unless you cancel the Service before the month begins. Subscription Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Accordingly, if you elect to cancel your subscription to the Service during the Subscription Period, you will not receive a refund of the Subscription Fee(s) previously paid to Konector. If your subscription is on a month-to-month basis and your credit card is no longer valid, then, unless you provide a new valid credit card, Konector will terminate the Service prior to the start of the subsequent month. The Subscription Fee is payable in Great British pounds (including, if any, all applicable taxes).
Member Account, Password And Security
You will receive a password and account designation upon completing the Service's registration process that will permit you and only you to access the Service. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Konector of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. Konector cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this.
In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to provide honest opinions and answers to any surveys or polls you participate in. Konector maintains the right to terminate access to the Service if it deems you are in breach of this behaviour.
When posting comments, opinions or site feedback ("Content") to the Service you acknowledge that Konector may or may not pre-screen Content, but that Konector and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, Konector and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content created by Konector or submitted to Konector, including without limitation, information in Konector Site Analytics, Konector Blog, Forums and/or Message Boards and in all other parts of the Service.
You acknowledge, consent and agree that Konector may access, preserve and disclose your account information and Content if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the TOS; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Konector, its users and the public.
Content Submitted or Made Available For Inclusion on the Service
Konector does not claim ownership of Content you submit or make available for inclusion on the Service. However, with respect to Content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Service, you grant Konector the perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable and fully sub-licensable license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such Content (in whole or in part) and to incorporate such Content into other works in any format or medium now known or later developed. "Publicly accessible" areas of the Service are those areas of the Service of properties that are intended by Konector to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the Service would include Konector Blog, message boards and site review forums.
You agree to indemnify and hold Konector and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, partners and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of Content you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Service, your use of the Service, your connection to the Service, your violation of the TOS, or your violation of any rights of another.
No Resale or Redistribution of Service
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Service use of the Service, or access to the Service.
Modifications to Service
Konector reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Konector shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
You agree that Konector may, under certain circumstances and without prior notice, immediately terminate your Konector account, any associated e-mail address, and access to the Service. If such termination does not result from your breach of the TOS, then you will receive a pro-rata refund of any fees pre-paid to Konector for the period subsequent to the termination.

The Service may provide, or third parties may provide, links to other World Wide Web sites or resources. Because Konector has no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that Konector is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any Content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such sites or resources. You further acknowledge and agree that Konector shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such Content, goods or services available on or through any such site or resource.
