These Terms are a legal agreement between you (i) as a Client (as defined below), or (ii) as a user only navigating through our Site (“you”, “your”, or “user”) and Aloro, Incorporated, ("Aloro", “we”, "us"). Before you use the App, you will need to agree to these Terms. We are only willing to make the App available to you if you accept all of these Terms. Otherwise, you may not access or use the App. The use of our presentation Site represents your confirmation that you understand and agree to all of these Terms.
In case you use the App and or Site on behalf of a company, you represent that you have the legal authority to accept these Terms on behalf of the respective company. In such a case, when using “you” in these Terms, we will refer to the respective company.
We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. If we make changes to these Terms, we will make the updated version of the Terms available on the App and on the Site and update the “Last Updated” date found at the top of these Terms and we will inform you accordingly. In such a case, in order to continue to use the App, you need to agree to the newly amended Terms.
1. THE SITE
The Site is only intended to present and detail our Services. As such, all the content made available on the Site in any form is for informational purposes only.
2. THE APP
The App is an application that can be installed by the users (online shops) of the Shopify platform, available at the URL address https://www.shopify.com (“Client”, “User”). The app is designed to help the Clients to engage with their potential customers (“End Users”) and to increase the conversion rate through 1-to-1 conversation using SMS & MMS messages.
The App aims at connection with the End Users in real-time, helping them answer questions, finding the right products and closing sales with personal attention that builds confidence and trust to the Client brand.
3. INSTALLING THE APP, CREATING THE USER ACCOUNT AND SETTING UP THE APP
1. Installing the App
In order to have access to all the features available for our Clients, you need to install the App which is available in the applications store of Shopify.
2. Creating the User Account
Once installed the App, you have to register and create a user account on our App (“User Account”).
For creating the User Account, we need your first and last name, email address, phone number, address, location and other necessary information. You have to provide accurate, current and complete User Account information about yourself.
The User Account can only be accessed from your Shopify account. As such, you are responsible for keeping your Shopify user account and password secure. Aloro cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to maintain the security of your account and password.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for all activities occurring under your User Account and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your Shopify account and, consequently, to your User Account, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
3. Setting up the App
When creating the User Account, you have to configure certain parameters in relation to your account in order for the App to properly function.
In case you do not set up the parameters correctly, the App cannot work properly, and we cannot provide the Services.
Additionally, you have to set up the parameters regarding the Services we provide, namely regarding the conversation with your customers, the End Users.
4. PROVIDING THE SERVICES (CONVERSATION WITH THE END USERS)
The Services provided through our App are 1-to-1 conversation with your potential customers, the End Users.
For clarity, when providing the Services, we are empowered by you to communicate with the End Users on your behalf and to offer them the discounts (as selected by you when setting up the App), or otherwise the promotions you set up when you configure your User Account.
You understand that the provision of our Services comprises the processing of personal data of the End Users and might also involve other legal requirements applicable in relation to the consumers (as defined by the applicable legal legislation).
As such, you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for the communication with the End Users, under the applicable legislation, including data privacy legislation (such as, the General Data Protection Regulation no. 679/2016 - GDPR and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act - TCPA) and consumer protection legislation. Among others, you are fully responsible to obtain any necessary authorization or consent to send them text messages via their telephone number and to comply with all other data protection obligations and principles, such as lawfulness and transparency.
In order to use our App, the Clients need to pay a monthly fee (“Fee”), due every month, fee agreed by Clients during sign-up.
In order to pay the Fee, the Client has to add a bank card and to fill in the bank card details or use a Shopify account to make the payments. On the due date of the Fee, the bank card registered by the Client will be automatically debited with the amount of the Fee. In case the bank card cannot be debited with the amount of the Fee, the access to our App will cease.
The payment of the Fee shall be made by using the services of a third-party provider including Shopify. You understand and agree that we do not provide the respective services and we cannot control them. We will not be responsible or liable for any claims, damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses arising out of or relating to the use of the respective payment services.
2. Trial User Account
When installing and creating the User Account, the Client has a trial period (“Trial Period”). During the Trial Period, the Client can benefit from all the features of the App. A month after the Trial Period, the bank card registered by the Client or the Shopify account will be debited with the amount of the Fee.
In case the bank card or Shopify account cannot be debited with the amount of the Fee, the access to our App will cease.
3. Changing the Fees
We have the right to change the Fees from time to time. When we do so, the updated Fees shall apply as of the date the changes are made.
We have the right to offer discounts to the Fees from time to time. In such a case, we will inform your accordingly and the discount shall apply pursuant to the conditions set out by Aloro.
