Terms of Service of The Busy App
Effective date: August 20, 2020
Please note that your use of and access to our services (defined below) are subject to the following terms; if you do not agree to all of the following, you may not use or access the services in any manner.
Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly improving our Services, so these Terms may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
The Busy App software will attempt to send your email campaign to your email recipients, but we cannot guarantee that your emails will be delivered. Because we rely on Google’s infrastructure from sending, you agree that we cannot be held responsible if your particular Gmail or G Suite account has reached its capacity, as determined by Google. We publish guidelines, based on Google’s guidelines, of an account’s maximum sending capacity, but they are just guidelines, and not hard rules.
Gmail and G Suite account suspensions or closures
The Busy App cannot be held responsible if Google suspends or terminates your Google or Gmail account because of The Busy App use. Ultimately, you are responsible for the email activity inside your Gmail account. You understand and agree that The Busy App is designed to automate the response to recipients emails if you’ve added an event in your “The Busy App” calendar through your Google account, and it is your responsibility to adhere to Google’s own terms and conditions. The Busy App has no ability to reinstate a Google account should Google decide to suspend or terminate it.
Subscriptions & Account deletions
You understand that if you subscribe to a paid The Busy App account using a credit card or PayPal account, you will be charged a monthly or annual fee, based on the plan you choose, until you cancel your subscription.
If you wish to delete your account then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Canceling a subscription
You understand and agree that in order to cancel a paid The Busy App subscription, you must email email@example.com. Your subscription will not be cancelled until these instructions are followed.
The Busy App is a low-cost productivity service with limited support staff. You may contact our support team by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Note that we do NOT answer all support requests. Emailing The Busy App staff directly may result in your request being ignored or delayed.
Confidentiality and Feedback
You acknowledge that, in the course of your relationship with The Busy App and in using the Services, you may obtain information relating to the Services and/or The Busy App (“Proprietary Information”). Such Proprietary Information shall belong solely to The Busy App and includes, but is not limited to, the features and mode of operation of the Services, trade secrets, know-how, inventions (whether or not patentable), techniques, processes, programs, ideas, algorithms, schematics, testing procedures, software design and architecture, computer code, internal documentation, design and function specifications, product requirements, problem reports, analysis and performance information, benchmarks, software documents, and other technical, business, product, marketing and financial information, plans and data. In regard to this Proprietary Information:
(a) You shall not use (except as expressly authorized by this Agreement) or disclose Proprietary Information without the prior written consent of The Busy App unless such Proprietary Information becomes generally publicly available without your breach of this Agreement.
(b) You agree to take reasonable measures to maintain the Proprietary Information and Services in confidence.
You may, at your discretion, provide feedback to The Busy App with respect to your testing of the Services (“Feedback”).

What about my privacy?
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at email@example.com
Neither The Busy App nor its licensors or suppliers makes any representations or warranties concerning any content contained in or accessed through the Services, and we will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Services. We (and our licensors and suppliers) make no representations or warranties regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through the Services. THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY The Busy App (AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN “AS-IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. SOME AREAS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL The Busy App (OR ITS LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR (B) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) £100 OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO The Busy App IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM, OR (III) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.
You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without The Busy App’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent.
Choice of Law
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of England and Wales and the parties hereby submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that The Busy App may, in its sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for itself as it sees fit. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and The Busy App agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and The Busy App, and that it supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are not an employee, agent, partner, or joint venture of The Busy App, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind The Busy App in any respect whatsoever. You and The Busy App agree there are no third party beneficiaries intended under these Terms.
