Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions ("Terms"), including any Order Forms, attachments, addenda, amendments, policies and/or exhibits, each of which are incorporated by reference herein (collectively, the "Agreement"), create a binding agreement between you ("Customer") and Spexfy ("Spexfy"). The Terms cover your use and access to the products, services, software, mobile applications and websites (collectively, "Services") provided by Spexfy. Spexfy and Customer may be individually referred to as a "Party" or collectively as the "Parties".
General. The Service is provided to Customer on Spexfy's website, including its subdomain(s) and other website(s) provided by Spexfy from time to time, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The Service allows the Customer to upload, transfer, publish and distribute, edit and comment text generated by Spexfy's algorithms ("Content"), in order to create a personalized Project Requirements Document ("PRD"), and share such Content through the Service (as well as third party services and websites).
Customer has an option of making each PRD public ("Public PRD") or private ("Private PRD"). We make the Content that the Customer shares with other users available through the Service, only to the extent specified by the Customer.
Customer has the right to change publicity/privacy settings of the PRD at any time. The use of a PRD and/or the corresponding Content is defined by the current settings designated by Customer. Spexfy is not responsible for setting a PRD to public or private mode, and Customer must personally check and ensure the proper setting of each PRD.
Public PRD can be viewed by other users of the Service who have a URL link to a Public PRD. Public PRD embedded into third-party websites may be viewed by anybody. Private PRD can be viewed and used only by those users of the Service who are granted access to the PRD by Customer.
When Customer uploads Content to or through the Service, Customer provides to each user of the Service with whom Customer shares a PRD, a non-exclusive, free license to access, view and use the corresponding Content to the extent specified in the technical settings of the Service.
Spexfy is not obligated to check PRD created in the Service, and Spexfy is not responsible for the Content published by any user to a PRD. Customer is solely responsible for the Content within a PRD. Spexfy may access your Account, PRDs and related data as required to provide the Services; however, Spexfy has no obligation to access your Account, PRDs, Customer Content or any other information related to your Account for any other purposes. Services do not include or consist of any investigation, review, verification, production, compilation, modification, or other similar services for any Account data or Customer Content. Customer is also responsible and liable for implementing, securing and/or enforcing any terms and conditions that may apply between Customer and users of the Service who are granted access to Customer's PRD(s), including terms applicable to Content within a PRD. Spexfy does not guarantee that any current features, future upgrades or other Service offerings will be offered to Customer and reserves the right to make periodic software updates, upgrades, patches, fixes, modifications and/or documentation to the Services in its sole discretion.
Beta Services. Spexfy may make Beta Services available to Customer from time to time. Customer may voluntarily choose to try such Beta Services at its own risk. Beta Services are (i) intended for evaluation purposes only, (ii) not for production use, (iii) not fully supported and (iv) may be subject to additional terms and conditions.
Account Information / Security
Most components of the Service allow or require creation of an account within the Service ("Account") which will establish Customer's email and password. Customer agrees to keep Account information current, not to share Account credentials and not to give others access to Customer's Account. Customer is solely responsible for safeguarding Account information, including the email, password and any Account activity. Customer agrees to immediately notify Spexfy of any unauthorized use or breach of security related to the Account, including the password.
Spexfy does not have any obligation to assist in or otherwise mediate in the event of any dispute between Customer representatives, user or any other third party with respect to ownership or control of any Account, PRD(s) or Customer Content. The available information within Spexfy's written and electronic records regarding the ownership or control of an Account, PRD(s), Customer Content and/or Services ordered will be definitive and controlling for purposes of administering the Account. In the event of any such dispute, Spexfy may take any course of action that it deems appropriate based on the information available, which may include disabling an Account until final agreement by the parties or judgement by a third-party arbitrator or declining to take any course of action.
Types of Accounts
Spexfy offers a variety of user accounts. You can find information about the current available types of accounts offered by Spexfy, including their features and pricing on Pricing page.
Free Accounts. "Free Accounts" are offered free of charge and limited to only one user and one PRD per month. Free Accounts are intended to be used for individual and testing purposes only.
Paid Self-Serve Accounts. You can increase the number of users and PRD and add paid features by turning your Account into a paid self-serve account ("Paid Account"). We'll automatically bill your credit card from the date you convert to a Paid Account and on each periodic renewal subscription term until canceled.
Your Paid Account will remain in effect until it's cancelled or terminated under these Terms. If you don't pay for your Paid Account on time, including through a declined credit card transaction, we reserve the right to suspend it or reduce your storage to free space levels.
Company Accounts. If you join a "Company Account", it is subject to your organization's control, and you must use it in compliance with your organization's terms and policies and any business agreement(s) that your organization has entered into with Spexfy. Your administrators may be able to access, disclose, restrict, or remove information in or from your corporate Account. They may also be able to restrict or terminate your access to a Company Account at their sole discretion. If you convert an existing Spexfy account into part of a Company Account, your administrators may prevent you from later disassociating your account from the Company Account.
Service Fees. The price payable by you for subscription and access to the Services shall be the price stated by Spexfy in the applicable Order Form or as otherwise indicated in our Site (e.g. the price indicated in the "I Accept" button box on Spexfy's website shopping cart). All prices are identified in US dollars.
Autorenewal. If your account is set to auto-renewal, Spexfy may then charge it automatically at the end of the then current subscription term, unless you notify Spexfy that you want to cancel or disable your auto-renewal subscription. Spexfy may revise Service fees by providing you at least thirty (30) days prior written notice. Spexfy will provide notice of any proposed price increase in such charges no later than thirty (30) days before the end of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, and any such increase will be effective on the first day of the next Renewal Term.
Taxes. All rates, fees and charges shall be exclusive of taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (including, without limitation, VAT). Taxes may vary based on jurisdiction and the Services provided. Taxes, access fees, or similar charges will be adjusted on the date in which those increases become effective as mandated by competent authority. Unless you provide proof of exemption to Spexfy, Spexfy will invoice you for all applicable sales, VAT or similar taxes, itemized separately. You are responsible for payment of all taxes, other than any taxes based on Spexfy's net income.
No Refund. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALL SERVICE FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. SPECIFICALLY, WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS OR ANY FEATURE OR COMPONENT THAT YOU HAVE PAID FOR BUT NOT USED.
Third Party Processors. We may use third-party processors for credit card payment processing and billing administration related to any fees payable for the Services. The processing of payments may be subject to the fees, terms, conditions and privacy policies of such payment processors.
Credit Card Payments. Some Service orders may require payment via valid credit or debit card at the time of purchase. By providing a valid credit or debit card, Customer is expressly authorizing all Service charges and fees to be charged to such payment card, including recurring payments billed on a monthly or annual basis. Recurring charges are billed to the credit or debit card associated with your Account monthly in advance for those Services in the following month. Credit and debit card payments are subject to the approval of the card issuer, and Spexfy will not be liable in any way if a card issuer refuses to accept a credit or debit card for any reason. Customer is responsible for any credit card chargeback or similar fees for refused or rejected payments that Spexfy is entitled to charge under this Agreement. If the payment card associated with Customer's Account is declined or fails for any reason, Spexfy may send Customer a notice using the contact information associated with Customer's Account. Spexfy may continue to attempt charging Customer's payment card for outstanding charges and additional fees along with any other rights and remedies available to Spexfy under this Agreement, at law or in equity.
Billing Statements. Unless otherwise stated at the time of purchase or on the billing statement, payment is due in full, without deduction or set-off, within thirty (30) days of the date on the billing statement. Any payment not made when due may be subject to a late payment fee equivalent to the lesser of (i) one and a half percent (1.5%) per month; or (ii) the highest rate allowed by Law. Spexfy's acceptance of late or partial payments (regardless of how they are marked or designated, including without limitation as "Paid in Full", "Accord and Satisfaction", or similarly) will not waive, limit, or prejudice in any way Spexfy's rights to collect any amount due. Spexfy may terminate the Services and this Agreement for non-payment if any fees or charges are not paid within thirty (30) days of the due date.
Disputes. If a Customer reasonably and in good faith disputes any portion of Spexfy's charges, including credit card charges, it must provide written notice to Spexfy within thirty (30) days of the billing date, identifying the reason for the dispute and the amount being disputed. Customer's dispute as to any portion of the billing statement will not excuse Customer's obligation to timely pay the undisputed portion of the billing statement. Upon resolution, Customer must pay any unpaid amounts within thirty (30) days. Any amounts that are found to be in error resulting in an overpayment by the Customer will be applied as a billing credit against future charges. Customer will be reimbursed any such outstanding billing credits at the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
In order to protect both the personal information and the general information that we receive from you through your use of Spexfy, we have implemented various security measures. For example, when you enter sensitive information on our online forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
Please keep in mind, however, that whenever you give out personal information online there is a risk that third parties may intercept and use that information.

Ownership / Intellectual Property
Limited License. Subject to, and conditional upon Customer's compliance with, the terms of this Agreement, Spexfy grants to Customer and its users, a limited, personal, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable (other than as permitted under this Agreement), non-sublicensable license to use any software provided or made available by Spexfy to the Customer as part of the Services to the extent reasonably required to use the Services as permitted by this Agreement, only for the duration that Customer is entitled to use the Services and subject to the Customer being current on its payment obligations.
What Spexfy Owns. The Service is and shall at all times remain solely the proprietary intellectual property of Spexfy and its licensors, protected by all U.S. and foreign copyright, proprietary and other intellectual property laws. Except for the rights expressly granted herein, Spexfy and its licensors retain all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in the Service, including without limitation, underlying software, source code, data, design, modules, organization, format, algorithm, documentation and other technology and any modification, derivative works of or improvements thereto. Even if the terms "purchase" and "sale" are used, Customer does not receive ownership rights in the Service and has only those use rights in this Agreement. Spexfy retains all rights not explicitly granted herein. Trademarks, logos and the like used in connection with Service are the trademarks of their respective owners.
Feedback / Aggregated Data Rights. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Customer agrees that Spexfy may collect feedback, recommendations and aggregated data related to Customer, Users and the Service ("Service Data"). Spexfy may use Service Data to develop, improve, support, and operate its products and services during and after the Term of this Agreement. This Section does not give Spexfy the right to identify Customer or any User as the source of any Service Data without prior written consent. Customer grants to Spexfy a royalty-free, worldwide, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable, and perpetual license to use or incorporate into any Spexfy product, offering or service any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations, or other feedback provided by Customer or its Users relating to the Service.
What Customer Owns. Customer retains all rights to its Confidential Information and Content, except that Customer agrees that Spexfy may use and access Customer's Confidential Information and Content for the purpose of providing the Services and related support to Customer. Spexfy disclaims all ownership and other rights as to Customer Content, except any limited rights granted by Customer to provide the Services.
No Ownership Transfer. Neither party will acquire any ownership rights or other intellectual property rights in any property of the other party, whether in existence before or developed during the course of this Agreement as related to the Services, of whatever nature.
Initial Term. The Term will begin on the date of online click-acceptance of these Terms or Effective Date on the Order Form, as applicable, and continue (i) on a month-to-month basis for Free Plans and (ii) and a month-to-month or annual basis as selected and agreed upon by you for Paid Team Plans ("Initial Term").
Automatic Renewal. Upon expiration of the Initial Term, the Services will automatically renew for successive periods of the same length as the Initial Term (each, a "Renewal Term") unless the Customer gives notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days before the expiration of the Initial Term or the then-current Renewal Term. The term of any users added to the Account after the initial Order Form is submitted will start on the Effective Date of the subsequent Order Form, will run conterminously with the then-current Term of any preexisting Services, and will be billed on the same billing cycles as the preexisting Services.
For Cause. Either Party may terminate this Agreement and any Services purchased hereunder in whole or part by giving written notice to the other Party if the other Party: i) breaches any material term of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice; ii) at the written recommendation of a government or regulatory agency following a change in either applicable Law or the Services; or iii) upon the commencement by or against the other Party of insolvency, receivership or bankruptcy proceedings or any other proceedings or an assignment for the benefit of creditors.
Discontinue Services. We may decide to discontinue the Services in response to unforeseen circumstances beyond Spexfy's control or to comply with a legal requirement. If we do so, we'll give you reasonable prior notice so that you can export Your Stuff from our systems. If we discontinue Services in this way before the end of any fixed or minimum term you have paid us for, we'll refund the portion of the fees you have pre-paid but haven't received Services for.
For Convenience. Either Party may terminate this Agreement and any Services purchased hereunder in whole or part for convenience by giving thirty (30) days prior written notice to the other Party if the other Party; provided, however, that, unless required by applicable law, any pre-paid fees shall not be refunded for annual Paid Accounts.
Effect of Termination
Termination shall not affect any payment obligations incurred prior to the effective date of termination, including all sums remaining unpaid for the Services for the remainder of the then-current subscription Term plus related Taxes and fees. If Customer terminates the Services, a portion of the Services, or this Agreement in its entirety for cause, Customer will not be liable for any fees or charges for terminated Services for any period subsequent to the effective date of such termination (except those arising from continued usage before the Services are disconnected), and Spexfy will provide Customer a pro-rata refund of all any prepaid and unused fees or charges paid by Customer for terminated Services.
During the Term of this Agreement and for at least one (1) year thereafter, the Receiving Party shall hold the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information in confidence, shall use such Confidential Information only for the purpose of fulfilling its obligations under this Agreement, and shall use at least as great a standard of care in protecting the Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information.
Each Party may disclose Confidential Information only to those of its employees, agents or subcontractors who have a need to it in order to perform or exercise such Party's rights or obligations under this Agreement and who are required to protect it against unauthorized disclosure in a manner no less protective than required under this Agreement. Each Party may disclose the other Party's Confidential Information in any legal proceeding or to a governmental entity as required by Law.
These restrictions on the use or disclosure of Confidential Information do not apply to any information which is independently developed by the Receiving Party or lawfully received free of restriction from another source having the right to so furnish such information; after it has become generally available to the public without breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party; which at the time of disclosure was already known to the Receiving Party, without restriction as evidenced by documentation in such Party's possession; or which the Disclosing Party confirms in writing is free of such restrictions.
Upon termination or expiry of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will promptly delete, destroy or, at the Disclosing Party's request, return to the Disclosing Party, all Disclosing Party's Confidential Information in its possession, including deleting or rendering unusable all electronic files and data that contain Confidential Information, and upon request will provide the Disclosing Party with certification of compliance with this subsection.
Indemnification by You. You shall indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Spexfy, its Affiliates, clients, agents, officers, licensors, distributors and/or any authorized representatives, and the officers, directors and employees of each (jointly, the "Spexfy's Indemnitees") from and against any and all third party liabilities, claims, causes of action, suits, losses, damages, fines, judgments, settlements costs and expenses (including any and all reasonable attorneys' fees) which may be suffered, made or incurred by any of such Spexfy's Indemnitees arising out of or relating to: (i) any breach of any warranties, representations and/or Agreements made by you hereunder (to the extent not arising substantially from any breach hereof by Spexfy); (ii) any third party claim arising out of or in relation to any Service or use thereof in combination with your business platform, including without limitation, any claim that any Service or use thereof violates, infringes, or misappropriates any proprietary or intellectual property right of any third party, including without limitation, any privacy right of any person, or violates any applicable law; and (iii) any representation, warranty or guarantee made by you with respect to any of the Service that is inconsistent with or in addition to those made in these Terms.
Indemnification by Spexfy. Spexfy will indemnify you against all claims and proceedings brought by anyone other than a Customer Related Party (as defined below) against Customer and its Related Parties (collectively "Claims") where the third party expressly asserts that the Service (i) infringes such third party's trademark or copyright arising under the laws of the United States, or (ii) Spexfy misappropriated such third party's trade secrets in the development of the Service. "Related Parties" means Affiliates, successors, assigns, members, shareholders, officers, directors and agents of Spexfy or Customer, as applicable. If Spexfy believes the Service, or any part thereof, may be the subject of an infringement or a misappropriation claim as to which this Section applies, then Spexfy may, in its discretion and at its sole expense: (1) procure for Customer the right to continue using such Service or any applicable part thereof, (2) modify or replace the Service so as to make it non-infringing, or (3) terminate this Agreement and refund to Customer any unused prepaid fees for periods following the termination date. This Section states Spexfy's sole liability to, and Customer's exclusive remedy for intellectual property infringement claims of any kind in connection with the Service.
Indemnification Procedure. As a material condition of the indemnification provided herein, promptly after a party seeking indemnification obtains knowledge of the existence or commencement of a Claim, the party to be indemnified will notify the other party of the Claim in writing; provided however, that the indemnifying party's indemnity obligations will be waived only if and to the extent that its ability to conduct the defense are materially prejudiced by this failure to give notice. The indemnifying party will assume the sole control of defense and settlement of the Claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party at the indemnifying party's risk and expense; provided, however, the indemnified party (i) may join in the defense and settlement of the Claim and employ counsel at its own expense, and (ii) will reasonably cooperate with the indemnifying party in the defense and settlement of the Claim. The indemnifying party may not settle any Claim without the indemnified party's written consent unless the settlement: (1) includes a release of all covered Claims pending against the indemnified party; (2) contains no admission of liability or wrongdoing by the indemnified party; and (3) imposes no obligations upon the indemnified party other than an obligation to stop using any infringing items.
Indemnification Exclusions. Spexfy shall not have any indemnification obligation pursuant to this Agreement to the extent a claim is based on: (i) use of any version of the Service other than the then-current, unaltered version, if infringement would have been avoided by use of a current, unaltered version thereof that has been made available to Customer; (ii) use of the Service in violation of this Agreement or in combination with a third-party service contributing to the claim; (iii) unauthorized modifications to the Service made by Customer; (iv) where Customer continues to use the Service after being notified of allegedly infringing activity or being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement; or (v) Customer Content.
Entire Liability. This Section states the entire liability of the indemnifying party, and the indemnified party's exclusive remedy with respect to any Claim.
