IF YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER LEGAL ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ENTITY, ITS AFFILIATES AND ALL USERS WHO ACCESS OUR SERVICES THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, IN WHICH CASE THE TERMS “YOU” OR “YOUR” SHALL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY, ITS AFFILIATES AND USERS ASSOCIATED WITH IT. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MUST NOT ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND MAY NOT USE THE SERVICES.
If Iris.ai makes material changes to these Terms, we will notify you by email or by posting a notice on our site before the changes are effective. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.
Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your account. While Iris.ai prohibits any wrongful, illegal or unauthorized conduct as well as any violation of content on the Service, you understand and agree that Iris.ai cannot be responsible for the content posted on the Service and you nonetheless may be exposed to such materials. You agree to use the Service at your own risk.

Abuse or excessively frequent requests to Iris.ai via the API may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your account’s access to the API. Iris.ai, in its sole discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of the API. Iris.ai will make a reasonable attempt via email to warn the account owner prior to suspension.
Iris.ai reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your access to the API (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
IV. Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms
All paid plans must enter a valid payment account. Free accounts are not required to provide payment account information.
An upgrade from the free plan to any paying plan will immediately bill you.
For monthly payment plans, the Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level while on a monthly billing cycle, the credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.
When changing from a monthly billing cycle to an yearly billing cycle, Iris.ai will bill for a full year at the next monthly billing date. For downgrades while on a yearly plan, Iris.ai will immediately refund the difference in plan cost, prorated for the remaining time in your yearly billing cycle.
Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account. Iris.ai does not accept any liability for such loss.
All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.
V. Termination of user accounts
1. Deleting your own account
You are solely responsible for properly deleting your account. Please note that we will not accept requests via the phone, mail, or by facsimile to delete your account.
You can delete your account at any time by clicking on the account link in the global navigation bar at the right top of your screen. The account screen provides “My information” bar, at the bottom of which a simple no questions asked “Delete” cancellation button is provided.
All of your content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon deletion. This information cannot be recovered once your account is deleted. If you delete your account before the end of your current paid up month, your deletion will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again.
2. Deleting of latent user accounts
“Latent users” are users who have not taken any Service significant action (hereby called “User activity”) within the last 2 years.
“User activity” is each activity that is essential to the Service we provide and to what it does – helping scientist optimize their research processes. Example of such User activities include but are not limited to: creating a science map, visiting a science map, creating a focus study, visiting a focus study, creating a bookmark, visiting a bookmarked map or paper, etc. Most actions in the Service are considered User activity, but there are few exceptions, such as user authentication (i.e. login) and browsing user dashboard. We believe that those two are not essential to the Service and what it does, that is why they are excluded from that category.
In case your account becomes a Latent user account, we may delete it, unless you take any User activity action, as described above. We will notify you automatically 30 days, 5 days and 1 day prior the deletion date and time. If no User activity is registered after the notifications your data will be downloaded and sent to you via email and afterwards deleted from our servers.
3. Other cases of deleting user accounts by Iris.ai
Iris.ai, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other Iris.ai service, for any reason at any time (for example, including but not limited to law infringement, fraudulent actions, etc.). Such suspension or termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account or your access to your account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all content in your account. Iris.ai reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
In the event that Iris.ai takes action to suspend or terminate an account, we will make a reasonable effort to provide the affected account owner with a copy of their account contents upon request, unless the account was suspended or terminated due to unlawful conduct.
VI. Modifications to the Service and Prices
Iris.ai reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly and yearly subscription plan fees to the Service, are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us. Such notice may be provided at any time by email or posting the changes to the Service itself.
Iris.ai shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
VII. Copyright and Content Ownership
We claim no intellectual property rights over the material you provide to the Service. Your profile and materials uploaded remain yours and you are solely liable for not infringing the intellectual property of any third-party. However, all training datasets generated in the Service belong to Iris.ai.
Iris.ai does not pre-screen content, but Iris.ai and its designee have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or remove any content that is available via the Service.
You shall provide Iris.ai with all the necessary assistance, support, information and documentation, at your own expense, in cases when against Iris.ai there is any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Iris.ai by a third-party alleging that your content, or your use of the Service in violation of this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third-party or violates applicable law, and shall indemnify Iris.ai for any damages finally awarded against, and for reasonable attorney’s fees incurred by Iris.ai in connection with any such claim, demand, suit or proceeding. Provided that Iris.ai (a) promptly gives you written notice of the claim, demand, suit or proceeding; (b) gives you all the information of the defense and settlement of the claim, demand, suit or proceeding and you do not provide to Iris.ai all the reasonable assistance, support, information and documentation, you waive all your demands with regards to the amount of the damages and/or attorney’s fees incurred by Iris.ai, and you shall be considered liable and indemnify Iris.ai for the whole amount.
You may not settle any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Iris.ai by a third-party alleging that your content, or your use of the Service in violation of this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third-party or violates applicable law unless the settlement unconditionally releases Iris.ai of all liability.
