Last Updated: September 25, 2018

The following terms and conditions (“Terms”) govern all use of the HonuHR.com website and all content, services, and products available at or through the website, (taken together, our “Services”), provided by Honu HR, Inc. (“Honu”). Our Services are offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies (including, without limitation, Honu’s Privacy Policy) and procedures that may be published from time to time by Honu (collectively, the “Agreement”). You agree that these Terms apply to our current Services and any changes to our Services in the future.

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using our Services. By accessing or using any part of our Services, you and any individuals you authorize to access our Services (“Authorized Users”) agree to become bound by the Terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree to all the Terms of this Agreement, then you may not access or use any of our Services. If these Terms are considered an offer by Honu, acceptance is expressly limited to these Terms.

1. Our Services

Subject to the Terms of this Agreement, Honu grants you and all Authorized Users a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access and use our Services, solely for your internal business purposes and not for resale or additional distribution. You shall be responsible for all Authorized Users in compliance with your obligations under the terms of the Agreement. Except for this license granted to you and all Authorized Users, Honu and its licensors retain all right, title and interest in and to our Services, including all related intellectual property rights. Our Services are protected by all applicable intellectual property laws, including U.S. copyright law and international treaties.

Our Services are delivered through a web interface, and do not include any hardware or equipment that may be necessary for you to access our Services, including but not limited to computer equipment, nor is Honu responsible for any fees charged by third-parties related to your access or usage of our Services.

Honu reserves the right to change, discontinue, or remove, at any time and at our sole discretion, any aspect or component of our Services. We will make a best effort to notify you in advance of any material changes to product functionality.

2. Restrictions

You shall not and shall not permit or authorize any third-party to:

1) Circumvent, disable, or otherwise interfere with any security-related features of Honu.
2) Trick, defraud, or mislead us and other users, especially in any attempt to learn sensitive account information such as user passwords.
3) Make improper use of our support services or submit false reports of abuse or misconduct.
4) Interfere with, disrupt, or create an undue burden on Honu or the networks or services connected to Honu.
5) Use any information obtained from Honu in order to harass, abuse, or harm another person, including any of Honu’s employees or agents engaged in providing any portion of our Services to you.
6) Use our Services as part of any effort to compete with us.
7) Decipher, decompile, disassemble, or reverse engineer any of the software comprising or in any way making up a part of Honu.

3. Fees, Payment, and Renewal

Some of our Services are offered for a fee (“Paid Services”), while other Services may be free with limited functionality. By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees for the specified contract duration, which we’ll bill or charge you for in regular intervals (such as monthly, annually, or biennially), on a pre-pay basis.

If your payment fails or Paid Services are otherwise not paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we reserve the right to revoke your access to our Services in general.

Automatic Renewal
To ensure uninterrupted service, our Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any taxes). Your Paid Services are renewed for the same interval of time.

Fee Changes
We may change our fees at any time. When applicable, we may give you advance notice of the fee changes. If you don’t agree with the fee changes, you can cancel your Paid Service.

Refunds / Cancellation
While you may cancel a Paid Service at any time, refunds are issued in our sole discretion and you will remain responsible for any fees owed to Honu for all remaining time on your service contract term(s).

4. Intellectual Property

This Agreement does not transfer from Honu to you any Honu or third party intellectual property, and all right, title, and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with Honu. Honu, Honu HR, HonuHR.com, and all other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with our Services, are trademarks or registered trademarks of Honu or Honu’s licensors. Other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with our Services may be the trademarks of other third parties. Your use of our Services grants you no right or license to reproduce or otherwise use any Honu or third-party trademarks.

5. Changes

We are constantly updating our Services, and that means sometimes we have to change the legal terms under which our Services are offered. If we make changes that are material, we will send you an email or another form of communication before the changes take effect. The notice will designate a reasonable period of time after which the new terms will take effect. If you disagree with our changes, then you should stop using our Services within the designated notice period. Your continued use of our Services will be subject to the new terms. However, any dispute that arose before the changes shall be governed by the Terms (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that were in place when the dispute arose.

6. Termination

Honu may terminate your access to all or any part of our Services at any time, if in Honu’s sole determination, you are using the Services in a manner that violates applicable laws or the terms of this Agreement or fail to make payment to Honu. If you wish to terminate this Agreement, you must email support@honuhr.com to cancel any applicable paid Services and then discontinue using our Services. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
