Website Terms of Use

Last updated: 22 October 2020

Acceptance of Terms

Hive Identity Technologies OÜ and its affiliates and subsidiaries ("Hive" or "us" or "we") welcome you to our Website!

The "Website" means www.hive.id, app.hive.id, blog.hive.id, docs.hive.id, support.hive.id and any successor URLs, mobile or localized versions and related sub-domains, in whatever format they may be offered now or in the future. Through the Website, we may provide you with general information regarding our company, products and services.

By accessing and using the Website, you accept these Website Terms of Use ("Terms"), our Privacy Policy and all other policies or notices posted by us on our Website without limitation or qualification. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use the Website. We can change these Terms at any time without any notice to you. It is your responsibility to review these Terms from time to time for any changes as it creates a binding legal agreement between you and Hive. If you use the Website after we have changed any of the Terms, you are agreeing to all of the changes.

Hive offers a suite of software-as-a-service solutions designed to enable customers to manage identities of, and data about, their end users (the "Hive Services"). Use of the Hive Services is subject to our Subscription Terms of Service, and these Terms do not apply to use of the Hive Services or receipt of related services, except where otherwise noted.

Permission to use the Website

We are making the Website available to you for informational and internal business purposes (personally or on behalf of your company). You may not (and you agree not to) use, copy, distribute, transmit, broadcast, sell, or do anything else with the Website for any other purpose.

User Content

You are solely responsible for any User Content you post to the Website, and the consequences of posting or publishing it. By "User Content", we mean any Content you post to the Website. "Content" means information, data, text, software, music, sound, photos, graphics, videos, messages, tags, interactive features, or any other materials. When we say "post", we include posting, uploading, sharing, submitting or otherwise providing User Content in any manner in connection with the Website.

Unless expressly stated otherwise herein, any User Content submitted by you through the Website shall be deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary. You represent that you have the lawful right to submit such information and agree that you will not submit any information unless you are legally entitled to do so. Because of the open nature of the Internet, we recommend that you not submit information you consider confidential.

Hive does not accept unauthorized idea submissions outside of established business relationships. Importantly, without a clear business relationship, Hive cannot and does not treat any such submissions in confidence. Accordingly, please do not communicate unauthorized idea submissions to Hive through the Website. Any ideas disclosed to Hive outside a pre-existing and documented confidential business relationship are not confidential and Hive may therefore develop, use and freely disclose or publish similar ideas without compensating you or accounting to you. Hive will make every reasonable effort to return or destroy any unauthorized idea submissions without detailed review of them. However, if a review is necessary in Hive’s sole discretion, it will be with the understanding that Hive assumes no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to Hive through the Website, you agree to be bound by these Terms.

Restrictions on User Content and your conduct

You may not:

We have the sole right, but not necessarily the obligation, to delete at any time any User Content that violates these rules or that we believe to be inappropriate for any reason.

Intellectual property rights in User Content

If you post User Content, you are making a guarantee to us that you either own all the User Content you are posting, or you have the owner's permission to post the User Content; this includes material covered by someone else's copyright, patent, trade secret, privacy, publicity, or any other proprietary right. Furthermore, you are guaranteeing that you have the right to allow us to make your User Content available for others to view and use as part of the Site without requiring that any such use be subject to additional obligations or terms. If you do not have these rights, do not post your User Content. By posting your User Content, you do not lose any ownership rights you may have to it. However, you do grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, and publicly display and perform your User Content in connection with the Site and our business, in any media formats or in tangible form and through any media channels now known or hereinafter developed.

You also agree to sharing and use of your User Content by other users as set forth in these terms.

We are not responsible for User Content

We generally do not review any of the User Content posted by our users. We do not endorse any User Content or support any views, opinions, recommendations, or advice that may be in user submissions. User Content comes from a variety of sources, and we make no promises about the reliability of any source or the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of any user submission. You may be offended by User Content that you see on the Website. You may find some of it to be inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable. However, you agree not to hold us responsible in any way for your use of our Website, including your exposure to User Content.

The Website and the content provided in the Website, including, but not limited to, graphic images, audio, video, html code, buttons, and text, may not be copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any way, without the prior written consent of Hive, except that you may download, display, and print one copy of the materials on any single computer solely for your personal, non-commercial use, provided that you do not modify the material in any way and you keep intact all copyright, trademark, and other proprietary notices.

All brand, product and service images, logos and names used in the Website that identify Hive, our suppliers or our customers and our or their proprietary products and services are the trademarks or service marks of Hive, our suppliers or our customers.

Links to other sites

The information provided on the Website is in most cases free of charge and for informational purposes only, and does not create a business or professional services relationship between you and Hive. Links on the Website may lead to services or sites not operated by Hive. No judgment or warranty is made with respect to such other services or sites and Hive takes no responsibility for such other sites or services. A link to another site or service is not an endorsement of that site or service. Any use you make of the information provided on the Website, or any site or service linked to by the Website, is at your own risk.

Site availability

You acknowledge that temporary interruptions in the availability of the Website may occur from time to time as normal events. Also, we may decide to cease making available the Website or any portion of the Website at any time and for any reason. Under no circumstances will Hive or its suppliers be held liable for any damages due to such interruptions or lack of availability.

How to communicate with us

If you have anything to communicate with us (like feedback, comments, or requests for technical support), you should contact us at support@hive.id.

Warranty disclaimer

The Website and its contents are provided “as is” and Hive makes no representation or warranty of any kind with respect to the Website or any site or service accessible through the Website. Hive expressly disclaims all express and implied warranties including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In no event will Hive be liable to any party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, consequential, or other damages (including, but not limited to, lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or data) without regard to the form of action and whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or otherwise, arising out of or in connection with the Website, any content on or accessed through the Website or any site service linked to, or any copying, displaying, or use thereof.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify, defend (if we so request) and hold harmless Hive and its affiliates, suppliers, partners and agents from and against any claim, demand, losses, damages or expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees) arising from your User Content, your use of the Website, your connection to the Website, your violation of these Terms or your violation of any rights of any third party. Your indemnification obligation will survive the termination of these Terms and your use of the Website.

Termination and suspension

We may terminate or suspend the Website or any part of the Website, terminate or suspend your use of the Website, block any IP address, or remove any of your User Content at any time without cause without any liability to you.

Further, we may terminate or suspend your permission to use the Website immediately and without notice upon any violation of these Terms, your failure to pay any fees when due, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems or for engagement by you in fraudulent or illegal activities. If we terminate your use of the Website for any of these reasons or otherwise for cause, we will not refund any fees you may have paid, whether for access to the Website or for Hive Services (if applicable).

Upon any termination we may delete your account, passwords and User Content, and we may bar you from further use of the Website. You understand that we may also continue to make your User Content available on the Website even if your use of the Website is terminated or suspended. You agree that we will have no liability to you or any third party for termination of your account or access to the Website.

General Terms

You agree that these Terms and any legal action or proceeding relating to the Website shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Estonia. If you attempt to bring any legal proceedings against Hive you specifically acknowledge that Hive is free to choose the jurisdiction of our preference as to where such action against us may be held. As you have agreed by using the Website to choose the laws of the Republic of Estonia to govern any such proceedings, we will probably choose to defend any such action in Estonia and we can make this decision entirely as it suits us, without regard to where in the world you are located, or from where in the world you visited the Website. You are responsible for complying with the laws of the jurisdiction from which you are accessing the Website and you agree that you will not access or use the information on the Website in violation of such laws.

These Terms, together with our Privacy Policy and any other notices or policies we have published on the Website (and additional terms for specific features or areas, as applicable), constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding this Website. If a court decides that any portion of these Terms is invalid, only the part that is invalid will not apply. The rest of these Terms will still be in effect. If we waive any of our rights under these Terms in any particular instance, it does not mean that we are waiving our rights generally or in the future. Furthermore, just because we may not enforce all our rights all of the time, it does not mean that we are waiving our rights. We may decide to enforce them at a later date. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted under these Terms, may not be transferred or assigned by you except as expressly set forth herein, but may be assigned by us without restriction. We won't be liable to you for any delay or failure to perform any obligation we have under these Terms if the delay or failure is due to events which are beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to any strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of power or of telecommunications or data networks or services, or refusal of approval or a license by a government agency.
