Terms of Service

Last revised: June 14, 2022

Welcome to Blaze! We’re the smarter way for you to build tools and apps without writing code.

 

1. INTRODUCTION

a. These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) are a legal agreement between you (“Licensee” or “you” and its derivatives) and Blaze Technology, Inc. (“Blaze” or “we” and its derivatives). These Terms govern your use of Blaze’s website at(the “Site”) www.blaze.tech and your access to and use of our application builder, hosting, and management platform (the “Platform”). Except where specifically noted below, all references to the Platform include the Site as well. Blaze’s Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into these Terms and details how we collect, use, and protect information about individuals.

b. To use the platform, you must be 18 or older (or the age of majority in the jurisdiction from which you are accessing the Platform), or be 13 or older and have your parent or guardian’s consent. If you are a parent or guardian agreeing to these Terms for your child, you are legally responsible for their use of the Platform. The Platform is not intended for anyone under 13 and individuals under 13 may not use the Platform.

c. By accessing or using the Platform, you represent and warrant that you have the legal right to do so, meet the age requirements in Section 1(b), and have the power to enter into a binding contract with us – either for yourself or on behalf of the entity on whose behalf you are using the Platform. You are required to affirmatively accept these terms when you sign up and login to the Platform.

d. These Terms do not apply to any third party websites, services and applications (“Third Party Services”) that you may access through the Platform, such as payment processors or messaging applications. We are not responsible for the content or practices of Third Party Services and provide links to Third Party Services only for the convenience of our users. We encourage you to carefully review the terms of service of any Third Party Service you access through the Platform 

e. We may change these Terms at any time. When we do so, we will make a new copy of the Terms available on this page. Any changes to the Terms will be effective immediately for new users and five (5) days after notice of such changes is posted on the Site for existing users.

2. PLATFORM LICENSE

a. License. Subject to these Terms, Blaze grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited and revocable license to: (i) access and use the functionality of the Platform to build, host and manage web applications and other Internet-based services (collectively, a “Blaze Site”) that may be made available to members of the general public (each such individual accessing a Blaze Site, an “End User”). The license granted in this Section 2(a) includes the right to access, use, and make a reasonable number of copies of any written descriptions of the functionality, technical requirements, or use of the Platform (collectively, “Documentation”), and (b) use any changes to the Platform made available to all Blaze clients at no additional cost (each, an “Update”) when each Update is made available. 

b. Restrictions. Except as explicitly permitted in these Terms, you may not, directly or indirectly: (i) modify or create derivative works of the Platform; (ii) decompile, reverse engineer, or translate any portion of the Platform into human-readable form (except to the extent expressly allowed by applicable law); (iii) rent, lease, share, distribute, or sell the Platform to any third party, including on a service bureau or similar basis; (iv) remove, alter or deface proprietary notices or marks in the Platform or Documentation; (v) disclose the results of testing or benchmarking of the Platform; (vi) circumvent or disable the Platform’s security, copyright protection, or license management mechanisms, (vii) interfere with the Platform’s operation; (viii) use the Platform to violate the law or the rights of any third party; (ix) access or attempt to access any other Platform systems, programs, data or accounts that are not made available for public or your use, or (x) attempt to do any of the foregoing. Blaze may take any actions it deems reasonable, including denying access to Users, suspending a Blaze Site, or terminating your Subscription for any breach of this Section 2(b). 

3. USE OF THE PLATFORM

a. Accounts.

i. To access the Platform’s app builder and management tools you must create an account (an “Account”). Every individual with such access is a “Direct User” (as opposed to End Users, who are visitors to Blaze Sites) and, unless the circumstance clearly indicates otherwise, all references to “you” in this Agreement apply to Direct Users. When you create or update an Account, you must provide information that lets us contact you and process payments through our third party payment processor. All personal information that we collect in relation to your Account is subject to our Privacy Policy; information collected by the payment processor is subject to their equivalent policy. You agree to keep all Account information accurate, current and complete for so long as you are using the Platform.

ii. If you design, operate, or maintain Blaze Sites for third parties on a commercial basis, your clients must also comply and agree with our Terms.

b. Security. Each Direct User must establish login credentials to access the Platform and is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of such credentials. You must immediately inform Blaze of any suspected unauthorized use of the Platform. Blaze cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from a failure to safeguard Account credentials or unauthorized use of such credentials.

4. BLAZE OBLIGATION

 a. Availability. Blaze will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Platform available at all times, except for scheduled downtime and any unavailability caused by events beyond our reasonable control, such as fires, natural disasters, government actions, civil unrest, Internet service provider failures or delays, or denial of service attacks that would not be stopped by the use of standard security measures.

b. Security. Blaze will employ industry-standard technical, logical, and physical security measures and practices for the Platform and any Blaze systems on which Direct User Content (as defined in Section 5(a)) is stored or processed designed to preserve the security and integrity of, and prevent unauthorized access to, the Platform, Blaze Sites, and Direct User Content.

c. Support. Blaze will provide all Updates to the Platform applicable to your Account as and when they become available. Direct Users with paid Subscriptions have access to email support at support@blaze.tech.

5. BLAZE SITES AND DIRECT USER CONTENT

a. General. You are responsible for all text, images, photographs, or other materials provided or uploaded by you or Direct Users associated with your Account to the Platform or Site (“Direct User Content”). Direct User Content includes all content of Blaze Sites, the design and workflow of a Blaze Site, all data generated by or submitted to a Blaze Site (including information relating to End Users), any templates or integrations, and any comments, reviews, responses or other information posted in any user forums or the equivalent. 

b. End User Content and Blaze Site Terms. If End Users are allowed to post content on a Blaze Site, such content will be deemed Direct User Content of the Direct User(s) who own the Account(s) associated with such Blaze Site. Each Blaze Site must include terms of use that are at least as protective of Blaze, and grant the controller of the Blaze Site the same rights with respect to removal and treatment of End User content that Blaze has with respect to Direct User Content set forth in these Terms.

c. License to Blaze. By posting, displaying, sharing or distributing Direct User Content on or through the Platform, you grant Blaze, its affiliates, and any applicable Third Party Services a nonexclusive license to use such Direct User Content during the Term (as defined in Section 10) solely for the purpose of operating the Platform and providing related services. Blaze is acquiring no rights in the Direct User Content except for the limited license set forth above. 

d. Compliance and Preservation. Blaze may access, preserve and disclose Account information and / or Direct User Content if Blaze is required to do so by applicable law or if we believe in good faith that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with legal process, (ii) enforce these Terms, (iii) respond to claims that any Direct User Content violates the rights of third parties, (iv) respond to your requests for customer service, or (v) protect the rights, property or personal safety of the Platform, Blaze, our employees, directors or officers, partners and agents, or members of the public.
