The Agreement is a binding contract between you and Yoonet Pty Ltd (the "Company," "we", or "us"). You further agree to be bound by the Privacy Policy available on the Site (the "Privacy Policy"), which is incorporated herein by reference. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent that you have the authority to do so, and that such entity agrees to, and is hereby bound by the Agreement, and in such a case the term "you" shall mean the entity, its affiliates, parents and subsidiaries.

We reserve the right to revise this Agreement at any time by updating this document on the Site. After such an update, you will be notified of the change through either email or when logging into the Site. Your continued use of the Site after the update will constitute your acceptance of the revised Agreement.

BY ACCESSING OR REGISTERING FOR THE SITE, YOU ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT IN ITS ENTIRETY AND WITHOUT LIMITATION.

1.2 The Company grants you a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive, personal license to use the Site for its intended purposes. We may restrict your access to the Site, disable your Account, or limit or revoke this license at any time without notice if you breach, or threaten to breach, any term of this Agreement. No refunds will be issued, credits offered or timeframe to use existing credits in the case of a termination of your license.

  • data mine, reverse engineer, decode, copy, or index the Site or any portion thereof;

  • Keep your account information, including username and password, confidential at all times; and
  • Provide only truthful and accurate information when creating an account or communicating with the Company or any of its agents.

2.2 The Site provides personal and business assistance services (the "Services") on a monthly subscription basis (the "Subscription"). The Services are non-transferable and may be used only by you. By purchasing a Subscription, you agree to pay the Subscription Fee as applicable to your selected Subscription Tier and displayed on our website or otherwise made known to you.

2.3 The hourly rate charged for the delivery of the Services is tiered based on the complexity, scarcity (or as otherwise determined by us) required to execute each request made by you. The applicable Tier Rate is published on our website or otherwise made known to you and updated from time to time. The Company will be the sole and final arbiter regarding the Tier Rate allocated to each request. The rate charged will be the rate applicable at the time the request is made.

2.4 The Company will be the sole and final arbiter regarding the hours required to perform each request.

2.5 Hours consumed are billed in 15 minute increments.

2.6 Your monthly Subscription fee can be used to purchase Services. Should you consume Services to a value less than your Subscription Fee in a month, your Account will be credited the balance of that month's subscription fee on the first day of the subsequent month if you have an active account in good standing with payment information linked to such account. 

2.7 Should you choose to cancel your subscription, the value of the credit on your account at the time of cancelation can be used by you for any Services for a period ending at 4:00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time on the day that is 90 days after the date the subscription is cancelled (the “Cancellation Period”). Subject to your account being in good standard and payment up to date, during the Cancellation Period you may consume Services in accordance in the normal manner and in accordance with our standard terms. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, should you fail to consume outstanding credit during the Cancellation Period, any credit will be forfeited at the conclusion of the Cancellation Period, even if the Account is later reactivated. 

2.8 Should you consume Services to a value that exceeds the credit on your account, the additional hours consumed will be billed at the Hourly Rate applicable to the Service Tier required to deliver the Services as applicable at the time the request is made.

2.9 Your Subscription will automatically renew at the then-current amount for a term equal to the original term of the Subscription. You authorise the Company to charge your credit card on file for the then-current amount of each Subscription renewal each month. You may cancel your Subscription at any time, but subject to clause 2.7 the Company will not issue any refund, setoff, or credit.

2.10 The Services may be rendered by requesting the Company complete certain tasks or projects. You may submit Requests through the designated page on the Site or through such other methods as the Company may, from time to time, designate.

2.11 The Company may utilise third party contractors to complete Requests.

2.12 If your Request involves a purchase or cost, the Company will incur the charge and will then charge your credit card on file for the actual amount in addition to any Subscription fees. You will be asked for approval of the price before any purchases or costs are incurred.

2.13 You agree to pay all fees or charges incurred on your Account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. We partner with Recurly to manage payments; by using our Service you agree to provide Recurly with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) ("Payment Provider") and also agree to Recurly’s terms of service.

2.14 The Company may be unable to undertake or complete certain Requests. In this case, we will alert you that the Request cannot be completed. The Company shall under no circumstance be liable for any loss, damages, costs, or other liabilities related to our inability to undertake or complete a Request.

3. Intellectual Property and Confidentiality

3.1 If the Company or its agents creates any original work for you as the result of a Request, all rights to the original work created for the Request will be owned by you, but you hereby license the Company the right to use and store the work to complete further Requests for you.

3.2 The Company will take reasonable steps to protect and keep secret your Confidential Information provided to the Company through the submission of a Request. As used in this Agreement, "Confidential Information" means non-public information that you instruct the Company to keep secret, but does not include information that (1) becomes generally available to the public other than an unauthorized disclosure by the Company or its agents; (2) was or becomes available to the Company or its agents on a non-confidential basis prior to your disclosure of the information to the Company or its agents; (3) is independently developed by the Company or its agents without reference to your Confidential Information; or (4) information the Company or its agents are required to disclose by a warrant, subpoena or other request in an investigation or legal proceeding or where disclosure is necessary to protect the Company's rights or property, or the rights or property of our agents or our other clients. The Company may share your Confidential Information with its agents as necessary to complete Requests.

3.3 You acknowledge that any intellectual property used on the Site or by the Company is property of its respective owner and that no license, assignment, or sale of intellectual property has been offered to you. You agree not to use any of the intellectual property associated with the Site or Company, or derivatives thereof, including the name “Yoonet" for any purpose other than those expressly permitted in this Agreement. The Company reserves all rights to its intellectual property, including (without limitation), copyrights, trademarks, patents and trade secrets.​

3.4 The Site may utilise certain third party software, scripts, and applications ("Third Party Applications”) to deliver functionality to users. Your use of the Site is subject to your agreement to the respective terms of use and licenses of all Third Party Applications.

You acknowledge and agree that if you breach this Clause 4.1, the Company will incur immediate, direct, and substantial harm which would be very difficult to compute with certainty as a basis for recovery of actual damages. You therefore acknowledge and agree that the liquidated damages described in this Clause 4.1 represent a fair and reasonable method of calculating damages and that it is in no way punitive. You acknowledge and agree that liquidated damages in the amount of $20,000.00 may be assessed and recovered by the Company against you in the event of any breach of this Clause 4.1 and without any requirement that the Company present any evidence of the amount or character of actual economic damages incurred. These liquidated damages are in addition to, and not in lieu of, the Company's right to an injunction against you for such a breach.
