This document is applicable to users of:
Being specified that Team Administrators and Event Administrators are collectively referred as “Administrators”, while Team Members are collectively referred as “Members” and the terms “you” and “users” encompass all users, including Administrators, Members and Individuals.
If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity, its Members and its affiliates to these Terms.

Wherever you reside in the world the other party to this contract is Swapcard Corporation, a corporation headquartered in France
It depends upon how you interact with the Service. If you install any Swapcard Software on your computing devices, you may be asked to agree to an end user license agreement.
Notably, if you are an Administrator , we may also ask you to pass a separate agreement with us (a "Specific Agreement"). In case of contradiction between the Specific Agreement and these Terms, the provisions of the Specific Agreement will prevail to the extent of this contradiction and in accordance with the specific object of this Specific Agreement.
Changes in these Terms are almost certain to happen, due to changes in our Service and the laws that apply to us and you. If we make a change, we will do our best to provide you with advance notice, although in some situations, such as where a change is required to satisfy applicable legal requirements, an update to these Terms may need to be effective immediately. We will announce changes here at our site, and we also may elect to notify you of changes by sending an email to the address you have provided to us. We will also try to explain the reasons for the change.
If we do update these Terms, you are free to decide whether to accept the new terms or to stop using our Service. Your continued use of the Service after the effectiveness of that update will be deemed to represent your agreement with, and consent to be bound by, the new Terms.
If any change to these Terms is not acceptable to you, your only remedy is to cancel your account and stop using the Service (see “How is My Account Closed” below).
Except for changes made by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms shall be effective unless set forth in a written agreement bearing a signature by you and us. For clarity, email or other communications will not constitute an effective written agreement for this purpose.
First, you need to create a Swapcard account. You create an account by providing us with an email address, and creating a password. We refer to this as your “Account Information.” We encourage you to use a distinct and non-obvious password combination that is different from what you use for other services.
You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy, completeness and confidentiality of your Account Information, and you will be responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including activities of others to whom you have provided your Account Information. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to provide us with accurate information or to keep your Account Information secure. If you discover any unauthorized use of your Account Information or suspect that anyone may be able to access your private Data, you should immediately change your password and notify our team at support (at) swapcard (dot) com.
If you are an Administrator, as part of the registration process, you will identify your Account Information. You may use these credentials to invite individuals to become Members of your team (each with their own password) under your account, up to the maximum number permitted for your account, if applicable. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login, password, and account and for all activities that occur under your login or account, including the activities of your Members.
Second, even if you can use our website, in order to use Swapcard on a variety of computing devices, you will need to install our software on your phones. Obtaining those devices and paying for their connectivity and data plans is your responsibility. Swapcard also has no responsibility for the availability of the Internet and other telecommunication services necessary to access the Service.

You also agree that Swapcard has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Data in our sole discretion.
If you elect to use any third party service or application that is integrated with Swapcard, you also agree that the licenses granted to Swapcard in the preceding paragraph shall apply to Data that is submitted or uploaded through such third party service or application. If the third party service or application you elect to use would access or extract Data, you grant Swapcard the right and license to enable such access to and extraction of your Data.
Inasmuch as we rely upon your rights to upload and distribute your Data, you represent and warrant to Swapcard that you have the unfettered legal rights and authority to submit your Data to Swapcard, to grant the rights granted to Swapcard under these Terms and to make any publication or other distribution of that Data in your use of the Service.

Are there rules about what I can do on the service?
Yes. Your use of the Service must be in accordance with these Terms. When it comes to your use of Swapcard, you agree that you are responsible for your own conduct and all conduct under your account. This means all data – such as text, images, contact details, messages, business cards and anything else you can think of, no matter what the form or technical structure (collectively, “Data”) – created, transmitted, stored or displayed in your account, is your sole responsibility as the person who created the Data or introduced it into the Service. This applies whether the Data is kept private, shared or transmitted using the Service or any third party application or services integrated with the Service.

Right to modify the service.
We retain the right, in our sole discretion, to implement new elements as part of and/or ancillary to the Service and any Swapcard Software, including changes that may affect the previous mode of operation of the Service. We expect that any such modifications will enhance the overall Service, but it is possible that you may not agree with us. We also reserve the right to establish limits to the nature or size of storage available to you, the characteristics of your account, the number of transmissions and email messages, the nature of, or your continued ability to access or distribute, your Data and other data, and impose other limitations at any time, with or without notice.
You also acknowledge that a variety of Swapcard actions may impair or prevent you from accessing your Data or using the Service at certain times and/or in the same way, for limited periods or permanently, and agree that Swapcard has no responsibility or liability as a result of any such actions or results, including, without limitation, for the deletion of, or failure to make available to you, any Data. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of any part of the Service.
Swapcard reserves the right to use your identity as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on Swapcard’s website and in other communication with existing or potential Swapcard customers. Furthermore, Swapcard may create cases studies, especially if you are an Administrator, which you agree to participate, if requested. For example, we might list your company on one of our webpages under lists of Swapcard customers or appear on videos. We don’t want to list customers who don’t want to be listed, so you may send an email to info (at) swapcard (dot) com stating that you do not wish to be used as a reference.
Right to engage third parties
Swapcard may from time to time engage certain affiliates or other third parties to provide technical or other services relating to all or part of the Service and you hereby agree that such third party involvement is acceptable.
Right to update our software
In connection with any modification of the Service, Swapcard may automatically download software updates on your computers and devices from time to time with the intention of improving, enhancing, repairing and/or further developing the Service. Swapcard will endeavour to provide you with the option of whether or not to install the update; however, in certain circumstances (e.g., security risks), Swapcard may require you to install the update to continue accessing the Service. In all cases, you agree to permit Swapcard to deliver these updates to you (and you to receive them) as part of your use of the Service.
We respond to clear and complete notices of alleged infringement of copyright, trademark or other intellectual property laws that satisfy the requirements in these Terms. If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been violated, please notify our compliance team at legal (at) swapcard (dot) com and we will investigate. Note that each owner of intellectual property is responsible for protecting their rights and taking any legal or other action they determine to be appropriate to do so, and Swapcard does not accept any obligation to take any particular action to enforce or protect any party’s intellectual property rights.
The Service is available worldwide, but our data processing operations take place in Ireland. If you use the Service, you acknowledge that you may be sending electronic communications (including your personal account information and Data), through computer networks owned by Swapcard and third parties located in Ireland and other locations in the European Union and other countries. As a result, your use of the Service will likely result in interstate and possibly international data transmissions, and your use of the Service shall constitute your consent to permit such transmissions.
You may close your account with our Service at any time, for any reason (or no reason), and you don’t even have to give us notice.

No. Our business model is to make the Service so valuable that our users will opt to pay for a premium service when available. However, we may promote other Swapcard products and services, events, demonstrate various uses of our Service and promote certain third party applications and services that work with Swapcard.
To the extent you use a Service plan that is made available for a fee, you will be required to select a payment plan and provide Swapcard accurate information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes in your payment information. You agree to pay Swapcard in accordance with the terms set forth on Swapcard’s website and these Terms, and you authorize Swapcard to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with such terms.
If you dispute any charges you must let Swapcard know within sixty (60) days after the date that Swapcard invoices you. All amounts paid are non-refundable and we reserve the right to change our prices in the future. If we increase our prices for your Service plan, we will provide notice of the change on the Site and in email to you at least 30 days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Service after the price change goes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount. Swapcard may choose to bill you through an invoice, in which case, full payment for invoices issued must be received by the date specified in the invoice. Past due fees are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with Services.
These Terms will continue in full effect unless and until your account or these Terms is terminated as described herein.

Reasons for Swapcard suspending or closing your account may include, without limitation: (i) breach or violation of these Terms or any Specific Agreement, (ii) an extended period of inactivity (determined in Swapcard’s sole discretion), (iii) your non-payment of any fees or other sums due Swapcard or any other party related to your use of the Service, (iv) the discontinuance or material modification of the Service (or any part thereof) or (vi) unexpected technical or security issues or problems.
Upon any termination of these Terms, we will have no obligation to maintain or provide your Data. If your team or event’s account is deleted, we will delete or destroy all copies of your Data in our possession or control, in a reasonably expedient way, unless legally prohibited.
In most cases, in the event we elect to close your account, we will provide at least 30 days advance notice to you at the email address you have provided to us, so you have a chance to retrieve any Data stored on the Service servers (unless we determine that we are legally prohibited from enabling you to do so). After the expiration of this notice period, you will no longer be able to retrieve Data contained in that account or otherwise use the Service through that account.
Disclaimer of Warranties
The Services may be temporarily unavailable for scheduled maintenance or for unscheduled emergency maintenance, or because of other causes beyond our reasonable control, but Swapcard shall use reasonable efforts to provide advance notice of any material scheduled service disruption.

THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS.

IN THESE JURISDICTIONS, SWAPCARD’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
Exclusions and limitations
The failure of Swapcard to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
You may not assign these Terms without the prior written consent of Swapcard, except, if you are a company or other legal entity, you may assign these Terms in connection with a merger, re-organization or acquisition of all or a substantial portion of your assets by another company, but only upon 30-days prior notice to Swapcard. Swapcard may assign or transfer these Terms, in whole or in part, without restriction.
You shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Swapcard from and against any claims, actions or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising or resulting from your breach of these Terms, any of your Data, or your (and your Members’) use or misuse of the Service. Swapcard shall provide notice to you of any such claim, suit or demand. Swapcard reserves the right to conduct the exclusive defense and control of any matter that is subject to indemnification under this section. In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting Swapcard’s defense of such matters.
This is another reason why it’s important for you to make sure your Account Information is accurate, complete and up to date. We may provide you with notices by email, regular mail or postings on the web site(s) related to the affected Service.

Some part of our Services supports the standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions and the OAuth 2 authentication protocol. However, there is no guarantee that such data transmissions cannot be accessed, modified or deleted due to a failure of firewall or other security software failures.
If Swapcard learns of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you and provide information on protective steps, if available, through the email address that you have provided to us or by posting a notice on our web site. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive such notices in writing.
You can delete your Personal Information and your Data you have posted at any time, and you can stop using the Swapcard Service at any time. If you delete information and material from your account, it will no longer be accessible to your contacts or others who may access the Service, but residual copies of your deleted Data may continue to exist on the Swapcard Service’s back-up and archiving systems for up to one year due to the nature of those systems’ operations. If you delete your account, your Personal Information and your Data will be deleted.

Our web site uses social media features (“Social Features”) provided by companies and services such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, li.legalnkedIn and others (depending on what country you’re in) to enable you to share information with these channels. The Social Features are identified on our web site by our display of the companies’ logos. These cookies are owned and controlled by third parties, and therefore the third parties – and not Swapcard – are responsible for their use. As such, we can't guarantee that we have li.legalsted every cookie you might get from a third party since a third party could change these cookies at any time as their needs change.
When you visit a page on the Swapcard web site that contains Social Features, your browser establi.legalshes a direct connection to the appli.legalcable social network’s servers. The Social Features inform the social networks what pages you have accessed on Swapcard’s site, and, if you are logged into the social network, your visit may be logged to your account on that service. For example, if you cli.legalck the Facebook “li.legalke” button, that information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by them. Even if you are not logged into the social network, and do not cli.legalck on a Social Feature on the Swapcard site, there is still a possibili.legalty that a Social Feature can transmit your IP address and cookie information to the operator of the social network. We will not transmit information regarding your account contents to such social networks.
For information on the purpose and scope of data processing by a social network, as well as your options for protecting your privacy, please review the appropriate social network's privacy poli.legalcy. For your convenience, below are li.legalnks to the most commonly used Social Features you’ll see on the Swapcard site.

However, if you configure your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to use Swapcard products or services that require you to sign in or take advantage of all the features of the Swapcard Service. In addition, information at the li.legalnks above can help you disable specific cookies related to web site performance and marketing.
