Terms of Service

 

Last Modified : February 22, 2019

Welcome to altruWisdom! Please read these terms of service ("Terms") carefully. Once accepted, they form a contract between you and altruWisdom ("altruWisdom", "we", "our", or "us") and govern your access to and use of the altruWisdom websites, client software, and Subscription Service ("Services").

By registering or using our Subscription Service you agree to be bound by these Terms, and to review our Privacy Policy. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and agreeing that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms. In that case, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization. If the organization has a separate contract in effect with us, the Terms of that contract govern your use of the Services.

You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and only if you have the power to form a contract with altruWisdom and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so.

The Services may change over time as we update or add new features. We may stop, suspend, or modify the Services or the content of the Services at our discretion, without prior notice to you.

You should also read our Privacy Policy for more information on our approach to privacy of information. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms, you must not use the Services. Should you have any questions concerning this Agreement, please contact us at info@altruwisdom.com.

MODIFICATIONS TO THESE TERMS

We may change these Terms from time to time due to changes in our Services and the laws that apply to us and you. altruWisdom reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make necessary unscheduled deployments of changes, updates or enhancements to the Services at any time. We may suspend or discontinue the Services at any time. The most current version of these Terms will always be posted on the website. If we make any changes, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you by revising the "Last Modified" date at the top of these Terms and in some cases, where appropriate, we may provide you with additional notice either on the website or by sending you an email notification using your email address registered with altruWisdom. We encourage you to check the date of these Terms whenever you visit the website to see if these Terms have been updated. Your continued access or use of any portion of the Services constitutes your consent to such changes.
You acknowledge and agree that altruWisdom shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services.

SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

Free Trial: altruWisdom currently provides a limited free trial. No credit card is required to access the free trial.

Subscription Fees:

  • Regular Monthly Rate: the subscription fee will remain fixed during the Subscription Term at the then-current monthly subscription rate.
