Terms of Use

effective September 3, 2015

Use of Service & Site

You agree to the terms & conditions set forth below (the “Agreement”) when using Wecora.com, Wecora mobile applications and any related products and services (the “Service”). You understand that the Service is owned and operated by Wecora, LLC and the website located at http://www.wecora.com as well as the Wecora mobile application is the copyrighted work of Wecora, LLC (the “Company” or “Wecora” or “we” or “us”). This Agreement and our Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement between us and you, the interior designer (“Professional”) and the Professional's clients (“Clients”) with whom information and work product may be shared. References to “you” or “your” shall refer to the Professional.

Software as a Service

Wecora provides a collection of online tools (“Tools”). These Tools are provided to subscribers on a trial or subscription basis. The Tools are currently only available by securely logging into your account at http://wecora.com or through our mobile web sites.
The Tools provided include, but are not limited to, online virtualization boards, commenting systems, methods of organizing and storing project photos, project management and social sharing platforms. The Tools also include systems for uploading photos and product information as well as clipping photos from third-party websites.
Wecora makes no guarantee regarding the availability or functionality of these Tools nor the availability of the data stored through the use of these Tools. Wecora will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the Tools and data provided, but the Professional assumes the risk that data stored may be lost.

Subscription

Access to the Tools is provided on a trial or paid subscription basis (both being referred to herein as a “Subscription”). Paid Subscriptions are billed monthly through a third-party payment platform known as “Stripe.com,” a PCI compliant secure processing solution. Monthly subscription prices vary based on the Professional, engagement and promotion, and may change from time to time.

Trial

A trial plan may be provided to Professionals to demonstrate Wecora. During this period, limitations may be placed on features and/or storage space requirements. Wecora reserves the rights to change the features and storage requirements associated with trial accounts at any time for any reason. Trial accounts may also be terminated at the decision of Wecora if Wecora believes the account is not acting in the best interest of the Company.

Cancellation

A Professional may cancel the Professional’s Subscription at any time. Cancellations will take effect immediately, and the Professional will be billed for the current outstanding usage charges related to the Subscription on a pro-rated basis based on the number of days elapsed in the current billing cycle for the Subscription. For example, if a Professional is paying $30 per month for the Subscription and cancels the Subscription 10-days after the start of their current billing cycle which contains a total of 30 days, the Professional will be charged only $10 for the 10 days of usage.

Refunds

Wecora does not offer any refunds of any amounts paid to Wecora.

Data Ownership

Any and all Work Product created by the Professional during a Subscription (either a trial Subscription or a paid Subscription) is owned by the Professional. For the purposes hereof, the term “Work Product” means and refers to the specific grouping of items and information created by the Professional which includes, but is not limited to, projects, boards, product information, pricing and budgeting. The term “Work Product” does not include any portion or all of the Service or the Tools. In the event of a termination of a Subscription, for any or no reason, or in the event that a trial Subscription concludes without the Professional entering into a paid Subscription with Wecora, all access to the Work Product of the Professional or those with whom the Work Product may have been publicly or privately shared will be terminated. Furthermore, Wecora reserves the right to delete any and all Work Product after the termination of any Subscription. The Professional understands and acknowledges that he, she or it will lose all rights and access to any Work Product previously created. The Professional may be allowed to download the data constituting his, her or its Work Product at such times and in such formats as determined by Wecora in its sole discretion.

Professional / Client Data Access

Wecora offers Tools that allow the Professional and their Clients to easily communicate and discuss various projects. These Tools also allow for various levels of access to different information provided by the Professional. The Professional assumes full responsibility of the level, details and accuracy of any and all information shared using the Service or Tools. Wecora cannot grant or change Professional or Client permissions at the request of any third-party, and any requests by individuals for access to information will be routed to the relevant Professional.

Use of Third Party Systems

Wecora utilizes a number of third-party systems to provide the Tools we offer to Professionals. These third party systems include, but are not limited to, image hosting, payment processing, analytics, mobile access, email and real-time communication. From time to time these services and systems may become unavailable which negatively impacts the availability and use of the Service and Tools. Wecora makes no guarantees regarding the availability or uptime of these services, the Service or the Tools.

Use of Third Party Images

You acknowledge that any third-party images either uploaded or clipped using the Wecora “Bookmarklet” or through other means, such as photos taken via a mobile application, are the property of the third-party and protected under applicable law. Wecora reserves the right to remove any and all images and data which Wecora deems, in its sole discretion, to infringe upon the rights of any other person.
