We may, at any time, modify the Services, cease to offer the Services or portions of the Services, or charge fees for Services or portions of the Services. You agree that we have no obligation to store, maintain or provide you a copy of any Submitted Data or Content, except to the extent required by applicable law or the Privacy Policy.

  1. you are 13 years of age or older;
  2. you will only have one GradientHQ account, which must be in your real name;
  3. you will not provide any false personal information on GrdientHQ, or create an account for anyone other than %li yourself without permission.
  4. if we disable your account, you will not create another one without our permission.
  5. you will keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date;
  6. if you select a username or similar identifier for your account or Group, we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe it is appropriate (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user's actual name);
  7. you are not restricted by Startup Reactor or Grdient from using the Services. You may not use the Services if you are legally prohibited from receiving or using them under the laws of the country in which you are resident or from which you access or use them.

    1. the processing of this membership application; and
    2. the administration of the membership with our organisation.
    Please visit our Privacy Policy page for further details on our data protection policy, including how you may access and correct your personal data or withdraw consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal data.

If you are an unpaid user of the Services, we may suspend or terminate your access to the Services at any time without notice or cause. If you are a paid user of the Services, we may suspend your access to the Services upon notice if you violate the law, these Terms, or the AUP, and we may terminate your access without notice or cause at the expiration of the Paid Term. Suspension of your paid account won’t affect the public display of Paid Services items like job postings.

You may terminate your account (and these Terms) at any time by notifying us at emily@grdient.com. If you are a paid user, terminating won’t entitle you to any refund of fees you’ve paid, and you’ll still be responsible for any unpaid fees you owe. When you terminate, you lose the right to access or use the Services, and we may delete your User Data.

You will not:

  1. use or launch any automated system, including, "robots," "spiders," or "offline readers," that sends more request messages to our servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional browser;
  2. use the Services in any manner that damages, disables, overburdens, or impairs any of our websites or interferes with any other party's use of the Services;
  3. attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Services;
  4. access the Services other than through our interface; or
  5. use the Services for any purpose or in any manner that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms.

Payment Stuff

If you purchase any Paid Services, you authorize us to charge your credit card or bank account for the applicable Fees. You further authorize us to use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to that third party. You authorize us to store and continue billing your payment method even after the Paid Term, to avoid interruptions in your Paid Services (e.g. recurring subscriptions) and to facilitate easy payment for new Paid Services. If you don’t pay the Fees when due, we may suspend or terminate your access to the Paid Services.

For Paid Terms that are listed as recurring or automatically renewing at the time of purchase, you must pay us for applicable Fees until you cancel the Paid Service, in which case you agree to still pay these Fees through the end of the then-current Paid Term. You can cancel your recurring Paid Services by emailing emily@grdient.com.

List prices for the Paid Services do not include taxes (like sales tax, VAT, and GST), which we will charge if they apply to you. You agree to pay any taxes applicable to your use of the Paid Services. You will not have any liability for any taxes based on our gross revenues or net income. If you are located in the European Union, you represent that you are registered for VAT purposes in your member state. At our request, you will provide us with your VAT registration number. If you are required to deduct or withhold any tax, you must pay the amount deducted or withheld as required by law and pay us an additional amount so that we receive payment in full as if there were no deduction or withholding.

Your privacy is very important to us. Our Services allow sharing of information in many ways, such as through user profiles, links to other websites, job postings, experiences, messages, and other posts or submissions by users of the Services.

For clarity, this license will survive termination or expiration of these Terms so that we can continue to provide the Services to others (including by sharing your posts, comments, and other User Data).

You represent and warrant that you have sufficient rights and permissions to grant us the license above. You agree that we are not responsible if other users of the Services or members of the public access, copy, or share your User Data. We may edit and make formatting changes to your User Data (such as modifying the size, layout or file type or removing metadata).

You agree that your submission of your User Data to the Services does not violate the law or anyone's rights, including anyone’s intellectual property rights, and that you have all sufficient rights and permissions to submit your User Data to the Services.

Entire Agreement, No Waiver. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all other proposals and agreements between us. If we do not enforce any right or provision in these Terms, that is not to be deemed a waiver of our right to do so in the future.

Governing Law. This Agreement shall in all respects be interpreted and construed with and by the laws of Singapore.

Force Majeure. Neither party will be responsible for failure or delay of performance if caused by: an act of war, hostility, or sabotage; act of God; electrical, internet, or telecommunication outage that is not caused by the obligated party; government restrictions; or other event outside the reasonable control of the obligated party. Each party will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event.

We reserve the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

Assignment. You will not assign or transfer these Terms, including any assignment or transfer by reason of merger, reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of your assets, change of control or operation of law, without our prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld. We may assign these Terms to any affiliate or in the event of merger, reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of our assets, change of control or operation of law.

Severability. If any part of these Terms are determined to be invalid or unenforceable by applicable law, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms will continue in effect.

Survival. All sections that by their nature should survive the termination or expiration of these Terms shall so survive.
