The Open Source Software, if any, contained in the application, shall be governed by the terms and conditions as is mentioned in detail in the applicable Open Source Software license.

MODIFICATIONS TO THE APPLICATION:

Sprouter is committed to ensuring that the Application is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the Application or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the Application or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.

At some point we may wish to update the Application. The requirements for all systems, including but not limited to, Android and iOS devices (and for any additional systems we decide to extend the availability of the Application to) may change, and you’ll need to download the updates if you want to keep using the Application. All of these Terms and Conditions will also apply to any updates. Sprouter does not promise that it will always update the Application so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the operating system version that you have installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept updates to the Application when offered to you. We may also wish to stop providing the Application, and may terminate use of it at any time without giving notice of termination to you. Unless we tell you otherwise, upon any termination, (1) the rights and licenses granted to you in these terms will end; (2) you must stop using the Application, and (if needed) delete it from your device.

ACCESS AND CONNECTIVITY:

It’s your responsibility to keep any and all devices you use to access the Application secure. We recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. The process of rooting/jailbreaking can and does make your mobile device more vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, as well as  generally compromise your phone’s security features, and could prevent the Application from working properly or at all. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and other information associated with the Application or Third Party Apps. You may not use another user’s account at any time and agree to notify Sprouter immediately of any unauthorized use of your account. Sprouter shall not be liable for any losses you incur as a result of someone else’s use of your account, either with or without your knowledge or consent. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by Sprouter, our affiliates, managers, employees, consultants, agents and representatives due to someone else’s use of your account.

You should be aware that there are certain things that Sprouter will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the Application, such as the ability to download and store certain information, will require the Application to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but Sprouter does not take responsibility for the Application not working at full functionality if you have either no connection, or issues with your connection, to the internet.

Sprouter also takes no responsibility, explicit, implicit, or other, for the safety, security, confidentiality, or quality of the network in which you use the Application. You are solely responsible for ensuring the safety and security of any network the Application is used on, as well as the safety, security, and confidentiality of any potentially private or sensitive data traveling to or from the Application within that network to the extent in which reasonable measures and best practices to prevent an incident can be applied.

If you’re using the Application on a Cellular or mobile network, you should remember that your terms of agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the Application, or other third party charges. In using the Application, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the Application outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the Application, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the Application.

CONFIDENTIALITY:

By using the Application, you agree to keep any and all confidential information shared with you regarding Sprouter and the Application confidential, secret, and secure. This information could include, but is not limited to things such as, knowledge of upcoming features and functionality that have not been publicly disclosed,  or Internal information about Sprouter or any of its employees. You are also agreeing that if you become aware, whether confirmed, assumed, or confidently suspicious, of a potential incident, you will be responsible for promptly notifying Sprouter with all facts and information known concerning the potential incident. 

FEEDBACK:

Sprouter values and encourages user feedback, both positive and negative. By using the Application and willingly submitting feedback, you agree that Sprouter reserves the right to use, or not use, that feedback in any manner we see fit with no payment, credit or compensation of any form in exchange.

You may not use the Application for any illegal or unauthorized purpose and agree to comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to your use of the Application.

These Terms of Use are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Sprouter’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. No waiver of any of these terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. Sprouter reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment. This dispute resolution provision will survive the termination of any or all of your transactions with Sprouter.

The information provided within the Application is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Sprouter to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Application or any portion of the Application, to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any content, program, product, service or other feature that Sprouter provides.
