Terms of Service

The following Terms of Service (“Terms” or “Agreement”) constitute a legal agreement between you or the entity or company that you represent (“Customer(s)” or “You”) and Mulu, Inc. (“AnswerBite”), which governs Customer’s use of the Services. The Services can be accessed (a) as a free-to-the-user service having the specifications outlined in the respective Plan (the “Free Version”) and (b) as a paid service having the specifications outlined in the respective Plan, for which Customer pays a quarterly or yearly subscription fee (the “Paid Version”). Customer’s use of the Services is subject to (a) the terms and conditions set forth below and (b) AnswerBite’s privacy policy, found at https://answerbite.com and incorporated herein by reference, so please take the time to fully understand how these Terms and AnswerBite’s privacy policy govern Customer’s relationship with AnswerBite and Customer’s use of the Services. The Services are available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old. If Customer is an individual, Customer represents and warrants that Customer is at least 18 years old. Each business or individual may have only 1 Free Version account.

Customers acknowledge that the Free Version is provided at no charge, and therefore, the terms that govern use of the Free Version are different, in part, from the terms that govern use of the Paid Version. The specific provisions that relate only to the Paid Version are set forth in Sections 6 (Paid Version Payments), 7.1 (Paid Version Limited Warranty), 8.1 (Paid Version Limitation of Liability), and 9.2 (Termination of the Paid Version), and the specific provision that relates only to the Free Version is set forth in Section 8.2 (Free Version Limitation of Liability). All other non-specified terms shall apply to both the Paid Version and Free Version. If Customer upgrades from the Free Version to a Paid Version, Customer acknowledges and agrees that the terms that govern the use of the Paid Version shall automatically apply to Customer upon such upgrade.

CUSTOMER’S RIGHT TO USE THE SERVICES IS EXPRESSLY CONDITIONED ON ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS. BY CLICKING ON THE “ACCEPT” BUTTON AND/OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU ARE UNCONDITIONALLY CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY AND ARE BECOMING A PARTY TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU ARE ACCESSING THE SERVICES ON BEHALF OF YOUR EMPLOYER OR ANOTHER ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO AGREE TO THESE TERMS ON ITS BEHALF. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MUST NOT ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND MAY NOT USE THE SERVICES.
