Terms & Conditions
Bottom line up front:
Your data is yours. Thunk does not sell the content of your notes to others. We will never read or access your private notes without written or verbal consent.
Please read these Personal Use Terms of Service ("Terms" or "Terms of Service") carefully before using the www.thunknotes.com website, the Thunk desktop application and the Thunk mobile application (together, or individually, the "Service") operated by Thunk Software, LLC. ("Thunk", "us", "we", or "our"). For purposes of these Terms, “you” and “your” means you as the user of the Service.
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms.
(all of which we collectively refer to as the “Terms of Service” or “Terms”). If you do not agree to these Terms, you do not have the right to access or use our Service. If you do register for or otherwise use our Service you shall be deemed to confirm your acceptance of the Terms and your agreement to be a party to this binding contract.
1. User Content
Our Content Ownership: We do not claim any ownership rights in any User Content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your User Content. Subject to the foregoing, Thunk and its licensors exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to the Service and Content (excluding User Content), including all associated intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Service and Content are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. You agree not to remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Service or Content.
Rights in User Content Granted by You: By making any User Content available through the Service, you hereby grant to Thunk a non-exclusive, transferable, worldwide, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, host, cache, store, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, distribute and modify (for formatting purposes only), your User Content solely in connection with operating and providing the Service and Content to you and, depending on the permission you grant, to other users. Subject to the foregoing license, as between Thunk and you, you retain any and all of your rights to your User Content.
Your Responsibility for User Content: You are solely responsible for all your User Content. You represent and warrant that you own all your User Content or you have all rights that are necessary to grant us the license rights in your User Content under these Terms. You also represent and warrant that neither your User Content, nor your use and provision of your User Content to be made available through the Service, nor any use of your User Content by Thunk on or through the Service will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
Sharing User Content: You may designate your User Content as “public” (such as posting User Content to a Space) or “private”. You agree that User Content you designate as public will be accessible by and be available to other users of the Service to whom you grant access to such publicly designated User Content. Consequently, you understand and agree that such users will have the right to view, comment on your publicly designated User Content. If you grant users additional permissions with respect to your User Content, you understand and agree that such users will, depending on the permissions you grant, have the right to use, publish, display, modify, or duplicate such User Content. You grant Thunk all rights necessary to make any of your publicly designated User Content available to other users of the Service and to permit those users to engage in the activities described in this Section with respect to your publicly designated User Content.
Removal of User Content: You can remove your User Content by specifically deleting it.
Content submitted, posted or modified by users in the Service is organized into separated sections we refer to as “Spaces.”
There are two general types of Spaces on the Service:
•“Personal Spaces” that can only be accessed by the user that created the Space.
•“Shared Spaces” that can be accessed by multiple users that form the members of the Space. Further details on Shared Spaces are outlined below.
In the Service, you can work across multiple Spaces at once, meaning your single account can access your own Personal Space(s), and different Shared Space(s). Spaces are completely separate, and you won’t be able to link any Content between them (although you can transfer copies of Content from one Space to another). You can also export your User Content from your Spaces for use outside of the Service using our export features.
Some parts of the Service are made available on a paid subscription basis ("Subscription(s)"). You will be billed in advanced on a recurring and periodic basis ("Billing Cycle"). Billing Cycles are set on a monthly or yearly basis.
Auto-Renewal: You agree that at the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew and your payment method for such Subscription will automatically be charged at the start of each new Subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that Billing Cycle, under the same conditions as the prior Billing Cycle unless you cancel it or Thunk cancels it.
Billing: All billing is handled by the Apple App Store and is governed by the Apple App Store’s own terms and conditions.
Subscription cancellation: You may cancel Your Subscription renewal in the Apple App Store at any time. You will not receive a refund for the fees You already paid for Your current Subscription period and You will be able to access the Pro features of the Service until the end of Your current Subscription period.
4. Free Trial
Thunk may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time ("Free Trial"). If you are on a Free Trial, you may cancel at any time until the last day of your Free Trial by following the cancellation procedures outlined in the Subscription section of these Terms. If you do not cancel your Free Trial, then your Free Trial will be converted to a paid Subscription at the end of the trial period, and you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected. You may then however, cancel your Subscription in accordance with the Subscription section of these Terms.
At any time and without notice, Thunk reserves the right to (a) modify the terms and conditions of any Free Trial offer, (b) cancel any Free Trial offer, or (c) cancel any Free Trial subscription at any time.
5. Fees and Fee Changes
Thunk, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
Thunk will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
Subscriptions made through an In-app purchase, the Apple App Store’s refund policy will apply. If you wish to request a refund, you may do so by contacting the Apple App Store directly.
7. In-app Purchases
Thunk includes In-app Purchases that allow you to buy monthly or yearly Subscriptions.
More information about how you may be able to manage In-app Purchases using your Device may be set out in the Apple App Store's own terms and conditions or in your Device's Help settings.
In-app Purchases can only be consumed within the Application. In-app Purchases cannot be redeemed for cash or other consideration or otherwise transferred.
If any In-app Purchase does not work once it has been successfully purchased, we will, after becoming aware of the fault or being notified to the fault by You, investigate the reason for the fault. We will act reasonably in deciding whether to provide You with a replacement In-app Purchase or issue You with a patch to repair the fault. In no event will We charge You to replace or repair the In-app Purchase. In the unlikely event that we are unable to replace or repair the relevant In-app Purchase or are unable to do so within a reasonable period of time and without significant inconvenience to You, We will contact the Apple App Store to refund You an amount up to the cost of the relevant In-app Purchase. Alternatively, if You wish to request a refund, You may do so by contacting the Apple App Store directly.
You acknowledge and agree that all billing and transaction processes are handled by the Apple App Store from where you downloaded the Application and are governed by that Apple App Store's own terms and conditions.
If you have any payment related issues with In-app Purchases, then you need to contact the Apple App Store directly.
