2. Changes to the Terms of Service
We reserve the right to update these Terms of Service from time to time, at our discretion and without notice. Nevertheless, this document is public on our website www.gopiro.com (‘Website’), and you will be able to track the changes for any new version. Your continued use of the Service following the publishing of updated Terms of Service means that you accept and agree to all the changes contained within.

3. Accessing the Service
We're working hard on improving our products and services, but we can't guarantee that our Service will be up and running and available 24/7. We also reserve the right to suspend or restrict access to some features to users, including in the case of system failure, maintenance, repair or reasons beyond our control.
It is a condition of your use of our Service that all the information you provide are correct, current and complete. As is common for online services, we reserve the right to disable any user account, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any provision of these Terms of Service.
You may not (or allow those acting on your behalf to):

- (ii) Sublicense the Service for use by a third party;
- (iii) defame or threaten MindSpark or others using the Services or any other products sold by MindSpark; and
- (iv) use threatening, abusive, demeaning or harassing language with MindSpark staff or contractors or otherwise engage in unprofessional behavior when interacting with MindSpark staff.
You may use the Service for your internal business purposes only as contemplated by these Terms of Service and shall not:
- (i) tamper with the security of the Service or with the accounts of any of our other customers,
- (ii) log into a server or account that you are not authorised to access,
- (iii) attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of the Service or to breach the security or authentication measures without proper authorization;
- (iv) render any part of the Service unusable;
- (v) create a Software Product that functions substantially the same as the Service and offer it for use by third parties;
- (vi) lease, distribute, license, sell or otherwise commercially exploit the Service or make the Service available to a third party other than as contemplated in these Terms of Service.
In addition, you agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations in your use of the Service and that in particular you will not use the Service to communicate any message or material that (i) is libelous, harmful to minors, obscene or constitutes pornography; (ii) infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party or is otherwise unlawful; or (iii) would otherwise constitute or encourage conduct that could constitute a criminal offense under any applicable law or regulation.
Breach of any of the above provisions will result in the suspension of your rights to use the Service and MindSpark may take any action necessary to prevent you from using the Service, including revoking access and canceling any support agreements, effective immediately upon occurrence of such action or event.
4. Free Trial
MindSpark may make all or part of the Service available to you on a trial basis free of charge (‘Free Trial’). The Free Trial shall begin when you submit a registration to us and shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the Free Trial expiration date specified by us upon receiving your registration, or (ii) the date you subscribe to a Paid Service (as defined below). The Service is provided “as-is” and without warranty of any kind during the Free Trial.
5. Purchase of the Paid Service
If you agree to pay the fee for access to one of the Service subscriptions (‘Paid Service’), the applicable unrefundable fee will be charged by MindSpark to the company or other corporate entity designated by you in accordance with the payment method you have chosen for your purchase, in advance either as a one off annual payment or on a monthly basis, depending on your chosen subscription. If you are paying by credit card, by designating a card to be billed, you confirm that you are authorized to make such purchase and that you are the holder of such card (i.e. that the card is issued in your name). All prices stated on the Website are inclusive of any applicable sales taxes and fees.
We will make the Service available to you during the term of your subscription to the Paid Service. You agree that your purchase of the Paid Service is neither contingent upon the delivery of any future functionality or features nor dependent upon any oral or written public comments made by us with respect to future functionality or features.
If you subscribe to the Paid Service on behalf of multiple users, you must ensure that all Users comply with these Terms of Service and you are responsible for such compliance. If you exceed the number of Users permitted by your Paid Service, you will be in breach of these Terms of Service and we will have the right to terminate or suspend your access to the Service or pursue any other remedy available to us.
We may change the price for the Paid Service from time to time. In respect of the Paid Service, such changed price will take effect after the expiry of the then current paid for period (i.e. the term that you have already paid for). Any price change will be communicated to you at least 14 days in advance so that you have an opportunity to elect to not renew. If you do not wish to be bound by such changed price relating to your Paid Service you may terminate your subscription of your Paid Service in accordance with the Section of these Terms of Service entitled “Term and termination” below. Your continued use of the Paid Service after the communication of such price change to you constitutes an acceptance of such new price.
7. Automatic subscription renewal
Your subscription to the Paid Service will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term unless you terminate your subscription prior to the end of such subscription term in accordance with the Section entitled “Term and termination”. At the time of renewal the payment method you have designated to be charged for the purchase of the Paid Service will automatically be charged our then current fees for the applicable subscription.
8. Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitations of Liability and Indemnification
Your use of the Service is at your sole risk. The Service is provided 'as is' and 'as available'. We disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we are not liable for damages, direct or consequential, resulting from your use of the Service, and you agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims, losses, liability costs and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from your violation of any third-party's rights to the extent that such violation arises from your use of the Service. Because the Service is not error or bug free, you agree that you will use it carefully and avoid using it in ways which might result in any loss of your or any third party's property or information.

10. Term and termination
These Terms of Service will become effective on the Effective Date and will remain effective until terminated by you or MindSpark.

MindSpark may not refund any remaining portion of subscription fees you have already paid for. MindSpark reserves the right to terminate these Terms of Service or suspend your Service account(s) at any time in case of unauthorized, or suspected unauthorized use of the Service whether in contravention of this Agreement or otherwise.
