Terms of Services

Terms of use

Welcome to Uolo. Please continue reading to learn about the rules and restrictions that govern your use of Uolo’s website(s) and all other products, services and applications made available by Uolo from time to time (such as, Uolo’s Android mobile applications and the Uolo services available on SMS) (collectively, the “Services”). This Agreement includes the terms in this document, as well as Uolo’s Privacy Policy.

Will these terms ever change?

We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so this Agreement may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to modify this Agreement at any time, but we will do our best to bring this to your attention by posting a notice on the Services, sending you a notice via email, and/or by some other means. If you don’t agree with the new terms, you may reject them but unfortunately you will no longer be able to use the Services. Your use of the Services in any way following such notification constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions as modified. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services, at any time. We’ll do our best to provide you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical.

You represent and warrant to Uolo that: (i) you are at least 18 years old (or, if you are not at least 18 years old, you have your parent’s permission to use the Services, and your parent has read and agrees to this Agreement on your behalf); (ii) all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful; (iii) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; (iv) if you’re agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to this Agreement on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to this Agreement (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity). You also certify that you are legally permitted to use and access the Services and take full responsibility for the selection and use of and access to the Services. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.

Privacy

We take the privacy of our users very seriously. Please read our Privacy Policy, located at Privacy URL.

Fees and payment : Responsibility for usage charges

Access to and use of the Services itself is free for parents / students for now, but in the future, we may offer new or additional special features which Uolo may charge for. Therefore, Uolo reserves the right to require payment of fees for certain Services. If you want access to those Services, you will pay all applicable fees for those Services, as will be described on the Services. If you continue to use those Services following such notification, that use constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.

Note that, by using the Services, you may receive e-mail or text messages on your phone or mobile device, which may cause you to incur usage charges or other fees or costs in accordance with your wireless or data service plan. Any and all such charges, fees, or costs are your sole responsibility. You should consult with your wireless carrier to determine what rates, charges, fees, or costs may apply to your use of the Services.

Additional Terms

This Agreement applies to all users of our Services, but there are special terms for you depending on what type of user you are. If you are, for example, a teacher, coach or parent who organizes a “class” or “group” of members, then you are an Organizer. If you are, for example, a student, teammate or parent who is invited to be a member of a class or group by an Organizer, you are a Subscriber. In certain cases, Subscribers may be allowed to invite new members to a “group” to become Subscribers. If you are agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of an organization, such as a school, coaching center, or club, you are an Organization. You may not sign up for or use the Uolo Services as someone you are not; Uolo may disable or terminate your account if you do so. Please read on below to find out what additional terms apply to you.

If you are a Subscriber (such as a student, parent, or other individual invited to join a group by an Organizer):

  • You must get your parent or guardian to read and agree to this Agreement before using the Services if you are under 18.

  • You will only join classes and/or groups that you have been invited to, or based on your school, class or group affiliation, to which you are a part of.

If you are an Organization (such as a school or coaching class):

  • You will only permit staff members (for example, your teachers) who are current employees of your organization to use the Services and to create their own class or group codes. Upon termination of a staff member’s employment with the Organization, you will require such individual to return and cease using all class or group codes he or she has in his or her possession. If at any time you learn a user of the Services claims to be affiliated with your organization who is not, in fact, affiliated with your Organization, you will notify Uolo immediately by emailing support@theuolo.com.

  • The Services may allow you to invite users to join your group(s) and/or to add users to your group(s). IF YOU INVITE OTHER USERS TO JOIN YOUR GROUP, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO US THAT YOU HAVE OBTAINED CONSENT FROM EACH PERSON THAT YOU INVITE AND/OR ADD TO RECEIVE SUCH INVITATION AND TO RECEIVE MESSAGES FROM UOLO, FROM YOU, AND FROM ANYONE ELSE IN THE GROUP.

  • Organizers can invite members by distributing “class codes” or “group codes” and communicate with Subscribers, (in some cases, there may be more than one Organizer per group).

  • You may only share class or group codes with Subscribers whom you wish to subscribe to your group. If you plan to broadly or publicly publish these codes, you must manage the accuracy of your subscriber lists carefully.

  • Organizers must maintain and monitor Subscriber lists in order to help ensure accurate representation of the Subscribers in your group.

You may not (i) select or use the name or email of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; or (ii) use a name subject to any rights of any person other than you without appropriate authorization. Uolo reserves the right to refuse registration of or cancel a Uolo account in its sole discretion. You will be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password.

Uolo reserves the right, but will have no obligation, to investigate your use of the Services in order to determine whether a violation of the Agreement has occurred or to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

Consent to receive periodic messages from Uolo

As part of the Services, Uolo may send communications (such as SMS, emails, and push notifications) to Subscribers of a class / group. For example, upon adding a new Subscriber to a class group, such new Subscriber will receive a welcome SMS message with username and password. Uolo may send other administrative messages as well.
