Terms of Service
- Acceptance of Terms
- Your Registration Obligations
In consideration of your use of the Site and the Services, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by Simility’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 we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of Simility or the Services (or any portion thereof).
Your Simility customer account will be registered and managed by one or more account administrators (each, an “Administrator”) designated by you. Each Administrator may extend Simility customer account administration privileges to other persons within their organization. Non-Administrator users on your customer account are simply “Users.”
In these Terms of Service and other incorporated policies, “you,” “your,” and “Customer” refers to the company or other user registering for the Services. Throughout these Terms of Service, your responsibility is stated for various items. You should understand by these references that the person or entity who creates a customer account is responsible for all activity on that account. You are therefore financially and otherwise responsible for all activity on your Simility Customer account, whether such activity is by Administrators, Users, or unauthorized third persons. You are encouraged to safeguard your account as described in Section 5 below and to monitor all use of your account by your organization’s Administrators and Users.
Additionally, by signing up for an account, the person or entity registering for the Services is deemed to have consented to these Terms of Service on behalf of all Administrators and Users who use the Simility Customer account. If you are creating an account on behalf of a legal entity or other group of persons, you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority to bind such entity or group to these Terms of Service.
- Data Analytics Services
As part of our Services, you and your Administrators and Users have access to a platform for analyzing data related to your business.
You acknowledge that the Services cannot be guaranteed to be accessible from all locations and devices due to various technological, regulatory, or other restrictions.
You are responsible for obtaining access to Simility, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access Simility.
You are responsible: (i) for any and all activities that may occur under your account and (ii) to maintain the confidentiality and security of your data and account password. You agree to notify us immediately if there has been an unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security, and you shall be liable for fraudulent charges until such time as you have notified us to suspend any compromised account.
Notice of any security breaches may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Forbidden Activity
You agree not to use the Services in any illegal or abusive manner. You may not (and are not authorized to allow any third party to) copy, modify, create a derivative work from, reverse engineer, reverse assemble or otherwise attempt to discover any source code, sell, assign, sublicense, grant a security interest in or otherwise transfer any right in Simility, the Services, or the Software.

- Pricing and Billing
Your particular pricing and payment terms will be governed by the service agreement you signed with Simility. Any termination of your account or access to the Services due a breach of these Terms of Service will not relieve you of any obligation to pay any fees or other amounts owed to Simility, except to the extent otherwise specified by your service agreement with Simility.
- Modifications to Simility
Simility reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, Simility or the Services (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Simility shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of Simility or the Services (or any part thereof). Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Services, including the release of new Simility properties, shall be subject to these Terms of Service.
- Term and Termination.
These Terms of Service apply from the date you create an account with Simility and continue to apply until your account and use of the Services is terminated by either of us. All sections of these Terms of Service that by their nature should continue (such as the “Governing Law and Jurisdiction” section) will survive termination.
You may terminate your Simility account, any associated email address, and access to Simility by submitting a termination request to Simility by phone at (650) 666-3285 or by email to email@example.com.
You agree that we may, without prior notice, immediately terminate, limit your access to or suspend your Simility account, any associated email address, and access to the Services for a breach of these Terms of Service or of your service agreement with Simility.
