Effective: 1st Jan, 2020
Thanks for using Chimni! These terms of service (“Terms”) cover your use and access to our services, client software and websites ("Services"). If you are in the UK your agreement is with Chimni Ltd (“Chimni”). Chimni doesn’t currently operate outside the UK. If you’re using our Services for an organization, you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization.
Your Content & Your Permissions
When you use our Services, you provide us with things like your files, content, messages, contacts, and so on (“Your Content”). Your Content is yours. These Terms don’t give us any rights to Your Content except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.
We need your permission to do things like hosting Your Content, backing it up, and sharing it when you ask us to. Our Services also provide you with features like photo thumbnails, document previews, commenting, easy sorting, editing, sharing, and searching. These and other features may require our systems to access, store, and scan Your Content. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.
Our system is based on the premise that you have the legal right to exercise control over the property details held in Your Content. By using our service you are stating that you have that right.
Sharing Your Content
We never share your content, apart from when you instruct our systems to do it for you. Our Services let you share Your Content with others, so please think carefully about what you share.
You’re responsible for your conduct. You and Your Content must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy – please see our website. Content in the Services may be protected by others’ intellectual property rights. Please don’t copy, upload, download, or share content unless you have the right to do so.
We may review your conduct and content for compliance with these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy – please see our website.. With that said, we have no obligation to do so. We aren’t responsible for the content people post and share via the Services.
Help us keep you informed and Your Content protected. Safeguard your password to the Services, and keep your account information current. Don’t share your account credentials or give others access to your account.
You may use our Services only as permitted by applicable law, including export control laws and regulations.
We sometimes release products and features that we are still testing and evaluating. Those Services have been marked beta, preview, early access, or evaluation (or with words or phrases with similar meanings) and may not be as reliable as Chimni’s other services, so please keep that in mind.
The Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other UK and foreign laws. These Terms don’t grant you any right, title, or interest in the Services, others’ content in the Services, Chimni trademarks, logos and other brand features. We welcome feedback, but note that we may use comments or suggestions without any obligation to you.
We respect the intellectual property of others and ask that you do too. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with the law, and such notices should be reported using our Copyright Policy– please see our website.. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers. Our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement on the Services is:
19 Emlyn Road

You’re free to stop using our Services at any time. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Services with notice to you if:
(a) you’re in breach of these Terms,
(b) you’re using the Services in a manner that would cause a real risk of harm or loss to us or other users, or
We’ll provide you with reasonable advance notice via the email address associated with your account to remedy the activity that prompted us to contact you and give you the opportunity to export Your Content from our Services. If after such notice you fail to take the steps we ask of you, we’ll terminate or suspend your access to the Services.
We won’t provide notice before termination where:
(a) you’re in material breach of these Terms,
(b) doing so would cause us legal liability or compromise our ability to provide the Services to our other users, or
(c) we're prohibited from doing so by law.
Discontinuation of Services
We may decide to discontinue the Services in response to unforeseen circumstances beyond Chimni’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 Content 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.
These Terms will be governed by UK law except for its conflicts of laws principles..
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Chimni with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, Severability & Assignment
Chimni’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Chimni may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time to better reflect:
(a) changes to the law,
(b) new regulatory requirements, or
(c) improvements or enhancements made to our Services.
If an update affects your use of the Services or your legal rights as a user of our Services, we’ll notify you prior to the update's effective date by sending an email to the email address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. These updated terms will be effective no less than 30 days from when we notify you.
If you don’t agree to the updates we make, please cancel your account before they become effective. Where applicable, we’ll offer you a prorated refund based on the amounts you have prepaid for Services and your account cancellation date. By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
