Thanks for using Youlinked's products and services.
Youlinked provides services based on surveys and evaluations about human values.
You indicate your agreement to these Terms by clicking or tapping on a button indicating your acceptance of these Terms, by executing a document that references them, or by using the Services.
If you will be using the Services on behalf of an organization, you agree to these Terms on behalf of that organization and you represent that you have the authority to do so. In such case, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization.
1. Fees and Payments
1.1. Fees for Services.You agree to pay to Youlinked any fees for each Service you purchase or use (including any overage fees), in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that Service. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through your account management page. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms or when required by law.
1.2. Subscriptions.Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (we call these "Subscriptions"). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a "billing cycle"). Billing cycles are typically monthly or annual, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you downgrade to a free plan through your online account management page, or by contacting our customer support team by email [email protected] and formally request your plan change request. You may change your subscription to a free plan at any time, in which case the balance for the unused period will be held as credit to be discounted in future charges.
1.3. Price Changes.For Services billed on a subscription basis, Youlinked may change the fees charged at any time and the difference in value for the period between the change date and the end of the billing cycle will become effective immediately. In case of an increase, the difference will be charged immediately. In case of reduction, the difference will be deducted from the next billing cycle. Youlinked will provide you with 1 month in advance a prior written notice by e-mail of any change in fees to give you an opportunity to change your Subscription before the change becomes effective.
2.1. Privacy.In the course of using the Services, you may submit content to Youlinked (including your personal data and the personal data of others), or third parties may submit content to you through the Services (your "Content"). We know that by giving us your Content, you are trusting us to treat it appropriately.
2.2. Confidentiality.A Youlinked will treat your Content as confidential information and only use and disclose it in accordance with these Terms (including our privacy policies). However, your Content is not regarded as confidential information if such Content: (a) is or becomes public (other than through breach of these Terms by Youlinked); (b) was lawfully known to Youlinked before receiving it from you; (c) is received by Youlinked from a third party without knowledge of breach of any obligation owed to you; or (d) was independently developed by Youlinked without reference to your Content. Youlinked may disclose your Content when required by law or legal process, but only after Youlinked, challenge the requirement to disclose.
2.3. Security.Youlinked will store and process your Content in a manner consistent with industry security standards. A Youlinked has implemented appropriate technical, organizational, and administrative systems, policies, and procedures designed to help ensure the security, integrity, and confidentiality of your Content and to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access to or use of your Content.
3. Your Content
3.1. You Retain Ownership of Your Content.You retain ownership of all of your intellectual property rights in your Content. Youlinked does not claim ownership over any of your Content.

3.2. Limited License to Your Content.You grant Youlinked a worldwide, royalty free license to use, reproduce, distribute, modify, adapt, create derivative works, make publicly available, and otherwise exploit your Content, but only for the limited purposes of providing the Services to you and as otherwise permitted by Youlinked's privacy policies. This license for such limited purposes continues even after you stop using our Services, with respect to aggregate and de-identified data derived from your Content and any residual backup copies of your Content made in the ordinary course of Youlinked's business. This license also extends to any trusted third parties we work with to the extent necessary to provide the Services to you.

4. Youlinked Intellectual Property

5. User Content
5.1. User Content.The Services display content provided by others that is not owned by Youlinked. Such content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. Correspondingly, you are responsible for your own Content and you must ensure that you have all the rights and permissions needed to use that Content in connection with the Services. Youlinked is not responsible for any actions you take with respect to your Content, including sharing it publicly. Please do not use content from the Services unless you have first obtained the permission of its owner, or are otherwise authorized by law to do so.
5.2. Content Review.You acknowledge that, in order to ensure compliance with legal obligations, Youlinked may be required to review certain content submitted to the Services to determine whether it is illegal or whether it violates these Terms (such as when unlawful content is reported to us). We may also modify, prevent access to, delete, or refuse to display content that we believe violates the law or these Terms. However, Youlinked otherwise has no obligation to monitor or review any content submitted to the Services.
5.3. Third Party Resources.Youlinked may publish links in its Services to internet websites maintained by third parties. Youlinked does not represent that it has reviewed such third party websites and is not responsible for them or any content appearing on them.

6. Account Management

You, and not Youlinked, are responsible for any activity occurring in your account (other than activity that Youlinked is directly responsible for which is not performed in accordance with your instructions), whether or not you authorized that activity. If you become aware of any unauthorized access to your account, you should notify Youlinked immediately. Accounts may not be shared and may only be used by one individual per account.
6.2. Keep Your Details Accurate.Youlinked occasionally sends notices to the email address registered with your account. You must keep your email address and, where applicable, your contact details and payment details associated with your account current and accurate. Accounts are controlled by the entity whose email address is registered with the account.
6.3. Account Inactivity.Youlinked may terminate your account and delete any content contained in it if there is no account activity (such as a log in event or payment) for over 12 months. However, we will attempt to warn you by email before terminating your account to provide you with an opportunity to log in to your account so that it remains active.
6.4. Customer Success.Youlinked may assign you a customer relationship manager, who may review your use of the Services and your Content to help you to more effectively use the Services, including by providing reporting and usage insight.

9. Suspension and Termination of Services
9.1. By You.If you terminate a Subscription in the middle of a billing cycle, you will not receive a refund for any period of time you did not use in that billing cycle unless you are terminating these Terms for any of the following reasons: (a) we have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after you have so notified us in writing; or (b) a refund is required by law.
9.2. By Youlinked.Youlinked may terminate your Subscription at the end of a billing cycle by providing at least 30 days' prior written notice to you. Youlinked may terminate your Subscription for any reason by providing at least 90 days' written notice to you and will provide a pro rata refund for any period of time you did not use in that billing cycle. Youlinked may suspend performance or terminate your Subscription for any of the following reasons: (a) you have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after Youlinked has so notified you in writing; (b) you cease your business operations or become subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within 90 days; or (c) you fail to pay fees for 30 days past the due date. Additionally, Youlinked may limit or suspend the Services to you if you fail to comply with these Terms, or if you use the Services in a way that causes legal liability to us or disrupts others' use of the Services. Youlinked may also suspend providing the Services to you if we are investigating suspected misconduct by you. If we limit, suspend, or terminate the Services you receive, we will endeavor to give you advance notice. However, there may be time sensitive situations where Youlinked may decide that we need to take immediate action without notice. Youlinked will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of any limitation or suspension under this Section as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action. Youlinked has no obligation to retain your Content upon termination of the applicable Service.
9.3. Further Measures.If Youlinked stops providing the Services to you because you repeatedly or egregiously breach these Terms, Youlinked may take measures to prevent the further use of the Services by you, including blocking your IP address.

Notice of amendments may also be posted to Youlinked's blog or upon your login to your account. Changes will be effective no sooner than the day they are publicly posted. In order for certain changes to become effective, applicable law may require Youlinked to obtain your consent to such changes, or to provide you with sufficient advance notice of them. If you do not want to agree to any changes made to the terms for a Service, you should stop using that Service, because by continuing to use the Services you indicate your agreement to be bound by the updated terms.
