What Are the Terms of Service?
What Is the wegree Service?
The Software (as defined below), the wegree service, and other products, services and websites hosted or made available by wegree, including, for example, our apps, Blog, and Help & Learning pages are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Service”. In exchange for being enabled to use the Service, you agree to abide by these Terms.
If This Is a Contract, Who Are the Parties?
You, the Account Holder, are one party to this contract. (An Account Holder is a person or entity who has contracted with wegree as either an individual user.
The other party to this contract is wegree Ltd, a limited liability company registered in the United Kingdom (12959549).
Is This the Only Contract I Have with wegree?
It depends upon how you interact with the wegree service and our software applications. If you install any wegree Software on your computing devices, you may be asked to agree to an end-user license agreement.
Will These Terms of Service Ever Change?
These Terms may be amended as new features, technology, or legal requirements arise, so please check back from time to time. If we make a significant change, we’ll notify you and, where required, seek your consent.
If we do update these Terms, you are free to decide whether to accept the updated terms or to stop using our Service (see “How is My Account Closed” below); your continued use of the Service after the effectiveness of that update will be deemed to represent your agreement with, and consent to be bound by, the new Terms. Except for changes made by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms shall be effective unless set forth in a written agreement expressly amending these Terms and bearing a written signature by you and us. For clarity, email or other communications will not constitute an effective written agreement for this purpose.
What Do I Have to Do to Use the wegree Service?
First, you need to create a wegree service account. You create an account by providing us with an email address, mobile phone number and providing our third-party authentication service with a password. We refer to this as your “wegree Account Information”. We encourage you to use a distinct and non-obvious password that is different from the passwords you use for any other service. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy, completeness and confidentiality of your wegree Account Information, and you will be responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including activities of others to whom you have provided your wegree account information. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to provide us with accurate information or to keep your wegree account information secure. If you discover any unauthorised use of your wegree account information or suspect that anyone may be able to access your private Content or agreements without authorisation, you should immediately change your password and notify our Customer Support team.
Second, you will need to access your account through our client software on your tablets and phones. Obtaining those devices and paying for their connectivity and data plans is your responsibility. wegree also has no responsibility for the availability of the Internet and other telecommunication services necessary to access the Service.
Can I Share My Account with Someone Else?
wegree service accounts should not be shared. If you share your wegree account information with anyone, that other person may be able to take control of the account, and we may not be able to determine who is the proper Account Holder. We will not have any liability to you (or anyone you share your wegree account information with) as a result of your or their actions under those circumstances. Since you may use a free wegree service account, and since we provide a number of mechanisms to allow you to share your account Content with others, we strongly urge you not to share your information with anyone, unless you are doing so as part of your estate planning purposes, as discussed below.
Once I Have an Account, What Are My Rights in the wegree Service?
Once your account is created and you accept these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive license to use the Service subject to these Terms, for so long as you are not barred from receiving the Service under the laws applicable to you, until you close your account voluntarily or until we close your account pursuant to these Terms. In addition, we grant you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the wegree Software provided to you by or on behalf of wegree, for the sole purpose of enabling you to use the wegree Software and enjoy the benefit of the Service, subject to any applicable license terms provided with the wegree Software and these Terms, until your rights are terminated in accordance with such license and/or these Terms. You do not obtain any other right or interest in wegree or the Service.
wegree’s Data Protection Laws Say My Data Is Mine – What Does That Mean?
You retain copyright and any other rights you already held in your Content and agreements before you submitted, posted or displayed it on or through the Service. But you do have to grant wegree a limited license, as described below, so we can make your data accessible and usable on the Service. Other than this limited license and other rights you grant in these Terms, wegree acknowledges and agrees that we do not obtain any right, title or interest from you under these Terms in any of your Content or agreements.
What Is the License I Have to Grant to wegree?
In order to enable wegree to operate the Service, we must obtain from you certain limited license rights to process your Content or agreements that are covered by intellectual property rights so that technical actions we take in operating the Service are not considered legal violations. For example, copyright laws could prevent us from processing, maintaining, storing, backing-up and distributing certain Content or agreements, unless you give us these rights. Accordingly, by using the Service and uploading Content, you are granting wegree a license to display, perform and distribute your Content and to modify (for technical purposes, e.g., making sure content is viewable on smartphones as well as computers and other devices) and reproduce such Content to enable wegree to operate the Service. You also agree that wegree has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion.

As we rely upon your rights to upload and distribute your Content and agreements, you represent and warrant to wegree that (1) you have the unfettered legal rights and authority to submit your Content to wegree, to make any other use, publication or other distribution of that Content or agreements in your use of the Service, and to grant the rights granted to wegree under these Terms; and (2) your Content and agreements comply with our User Guidelines and these Terms.

RIGHT TO MODIFY THE SERVICE.
We retain the right, in our sole discretion, to implement new elements as part of and/or ancillary to the Service, including changes that may affect the previous mode of operation of the Service or wegree Software. We expect that any such modifications will enhance the overall Service, but it is possible that you may not agree with us.
