PetroFeed terms of services
PetroFeed Inc. and its related companies (collectively, "PetroFeed", "us", "our" or "we") designs products and services that give people and organizations the power to create, share and consume work-related information seamlessly with everyone they do business with while maintaining confidentiality.
These terms of service (the "Terms") govern our relationship with users and others who interact with PetroFeed, as well as PetroFeed products, services, websites and brands, including the app “Tether.iD”, the Trade Name “Tether”, and the website www.Tether.iD all of which we collectively call the "PetroFeed Services" or "Services". Each time you use the Services you are agreeing to be governed by the current version of the Terms, which are updated from time to time. When we make material changes to the Terms, PetroFeed will notify users about the changes before putting them into effect.
Because PetroFeed provides a wide range of Services, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific app, product, or service. To the extent those supplemental terms conflict with the Terms, the supplemental terms associated with the app, product, or service govern with respect to your use of such app, product or service to the extent of the conflict.
Account Creation and Security
Using your real identity and keeping your information accurate is essential to the effectiveness of our Services. Below are the commitments you make to us relating to creating your account and keeping it accurate and secure:
- You must be of legal age in the place where you are using our Services (that is, you must be old enough to enter into a legally binding agreement before you can use our Services).
- Accounts cannot be registered by bots or any other automated means. These types of accounts will be deactivated.
- You are the only person authorized to use your account and the login credentials associated with it. A single login shared by multiple people is not permitted.
- Since it is your account, you are responsible and liable for any loss or damage resulting or arising from the use of your account. This means that you are responsible for any content that is posted through or shared from your account, as well as any activity that occurs using your account, even if the content is posted by others who have gained access to your account. This also means you must keep your account password secret. We strongly recommend using a strong password to be sure no one can use your account besides you.
- Each user can only have one account. You cannot transfer your account to another person.
- As between you and others (including your employer), your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. Administrator rights bought by your employer), the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.
- You may not use the Services for any illegal or unauthorized purpose or for breaking the law.
- PetroFeed reserves the right to refuse to provide the Services to anyone at any time.
- You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining all computers, devices and any hardware data plans and any third party licenses required to access and use the Services.
- Without limitation, you agree not to use the Services to:
- infringe the intellectual property rights or other rights of others;
- transmit any material that contains software viruses or other harmful or damaging computer code;
- interfere with or disrupt servers or networks connected to the Services or violate the regulations, policies or procedures of such networks;
- attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Services, other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to the Services;
- harass or interfere with another user’s use and enjoyment of the Services;
- provide any data that you do not have the rights or permissions to provide; or
- generate or transmit “spam”.
- If your bandwidth usage significantly exceeds the average user's bandwidth usage (as determined by PetroFeed) then we may disable your account or throttle your access until you reduce your bandwidth consumption.
- You must not modify, adapt or hack the Services or modify another website in a way that implies that it is associated with PetroFeed or any of the Services.
- You may not transfer any PetroFeed software, or access to such software, to another party without first obtaining PetroFeed's express written consent.
- Once you create an account, PetroFeed grants you the right to use the PetroFeed Services, provided you follow these Terms at all times. If, at any time, you breach any provision of these Terms, your right to use the PetroFeed Services will immediately and automatically terminate.
Content ownership and use
- When you submit content that is not your personal information, that content becomes PetroFeed’s intellectual property so that we can allow others to view and use such content. PetroFeed will give you privacy settings options at the time of posting such content, which will allow you to specify who may see the posted information, and therefore allow you to choose the level of confidentiality you want to maintain. By setting the privacy settings associated with your content, you agree to allow certain people and organizations—those you chose to give access to—to view your submitted information and related content, and you agree to allow PetroFeed to make such content available to those people and organizations.
- Confidentiality is very important to PetroFeed and therefore PetroFeed has the right (but not the obligation) to validate content before it is made available to other users in the network. Also, PetroFeed may refuse to post, or may remove, any content (including content that we determine is unlawful, offensive, libelous, defamatory or otherwise objectionable or content that violates any party's rights) at any time.
