Terms of Service
LAST UPDATED: May 1, 2019
RacingSnail, Inc. DBA Mivation (“Mivation””), licenses and permits you to use the Racing Snail® Production Management, Performance Management and Compensation Software (“RacingSnail System”) and/or the Leaderboard Legends™ Competition, Recognition, Gamification, Broadcasts, and Records Software (“Leaderboard Legends System”). The RacingSnail System and the Leaderboard Legends System are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “System” under the terms and conditions set forth below.
The System is provided with the understanding that neither Mivation, nor its business partners, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, consultants or agents are engaged in rendering legal, financial, insurance or other professional services or advice. Your use of the System is subject to the additional disclaimers and caveats that may appear throughout the System.
Mivation and its agents assume no responsibility for any consequence relating directly or indirectly to any action or inaction that you take or fail to take based on the information, services or other material on this System or the results displayed or provided. While Mivation strives to keep the information, functions, features, calculations and algorithms on this System accurate, complete and up-to-date, Mivation and its shareholders, officers, directors, programmers, contributors, or suppliers cannot guarantee, and will not be responsible for any damage or loss related to, the availability, accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the information or the System. It is possible that the System could become unavailable at any time without notice or include inaccuracies or errors, and that unauthorized additions, deletions and alterations could be made to the System. You agree to notify Mivation of these problems if you discover them.
ACCOUNT, PASSWORD, AND SECURITY
You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your username and password. You may not disclose your username or password to any third party (other than third parties authorized by you to use your account in accordance with this Agreement) and are solely responsible for any use of, or action taken under, your password. If your password is compromised, you must immediately change your password.
From time to time Mivation authorized personal may log into the System under your username and password in order to maintain or improve service, including to assist you with technical or billing issues. You hereby acknowledge and consent to such access.
Mivation accepts payment via a valid credit or debit card for recurring monthly or recurring annual subscriptions. Monthly subscription fees are charged monthly on the day of the original purchase date for service starting the following month. Annual subscriptions are charged annually on the day of the original purchase date for service starting the following year.
Unless timely terminated by you, you agree that recurring fees will be processed in accordance with this Agreement and you authorize Mivation to automatically bill your credit or debit card in accordance with this Agreement for the then-current subscription fees. The prices for renewals may be different than those paid for a prior subscription. Mivation shall not be responsible for any expenses you may incur as a result of overdrawing a bank account or exceeding a credit limit as a result of an automatic charge pursuant to this Agreement.
You agree to notify Mivation promptly of any changes to your credit card account number, its expiration date and/or your billing address, and you agree to notify Mivation promptly if your credit card expires or is canceled for any reason. In the event the credit card information is deemed invalid and another automatic payment option for all recurring charges is not set up prior to the charge date, access to the System may be deactivated.
If your account is suspended for non-payment, it will only be reactivated upon payment, in full, of all overdue fees. Your subscription will not be activated or reactivated without prior payment.
For monthly subscriptions, you must notify us of your intent to terminate at least 10 days before the end of the current subscription period. For annual subscriptions, you must notify use of your intent to termination at least 30 days before the end of the current subscription period. Upon termination, cancellation or suspension, your right to use the System will stop immediately. You may not have access to data that you stored on the System after termination of your account. You are responsible for backing-up your data that you enter into the System.
Mivation does not issue refunds once an order is accomplished and the account has been set-up. We offer a 30-day money back guarantee on all funds except start-up fees. 30 Day money back guarantee only applies to the first 30 days from your initial purchase. After 30 days from the date of original purchase, all monthly fees and annual fees are non-refundable. These fees may not be refunded, applied to another subscription, or transferred to anyone else. “Free month” referral credits have no cash value and are non-transferrable. Under no circumstances will any compensation be refunded for any unused referral credit.
TERMINATION BY MIVATION
Mivation may cancel or suspend the System or your access to the System at any time and for any reason without notice. Upon cancellation or suspension, your right to use the System will stop immediately. You may not have access to data that you stored on the System after suspension or termination of the System or your account. You are responsible for backing-up your data that you enter into the System.
If your account is canceled in its entirety without cause by Mivation, you will receive a refund on a pro-rata basis the amount of your payment corresponding to the portion of your service remaining right before termination of the System or your account.
