Any changes to these Terms will be in effect as of the “Last Updated” date referred to at the top of this page. You should review these Terms before using the Service.
Your continued use of the Service after the “Last Updated” date will constitute your acceptance of and agreement to such changes. When we make material updates to the Terms, we will attempt to notify you via the contact methods you’ve specified as part of your account creation.
You may not use the Service if you:
(a) do not agree to these Terms; (b) are not of the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence and do not have your legal guardian’s written permission to use the Service; or (c) are prohibited from accessing or using the Service or any of the Service’s contents, products or Service by applicable law.By using the service, you affirm that you are of legal age (as specified below) to enter into these Terms. You affirm that if you are using the service on behalf of an organization or company, you have the legal authority to bind any such organization or company to these Terms.1. HOW THE SERVICE WORKS
The Service provides a suite of tools designed to help you create, store, and transmit blockchain-based assets. Among other things, Heirloom works together with its credential-granting partners (each a “Credential Partner”) to create blockchain-based digital assets reflecting certain credentials you may have been awarded from time to time, such as a university degree, a certificate stating that you’ve completed a course of study, or a license you’ve been granted to perform a certain activity (each a “Credential”). Each Credential we create is a verifiable credential, and may or may not have a corresponding non-fungible token (an “NFT”) on a blockchain network.
YOUR CREDENTIALS ARE PERSONAL TO YOU. Credentials reflect your own personal achievements and authorizations and are not intended to be assigned, conveyed, sold, licensed, or otherwise transferred to anyone else. Accordingly, you may not assign, convey, sell, license, or otherwise transfer any of your right, title, or interest in or to such Credentials to any third party without the prior written consent of both Heirloom and the applicable Credential Partner. Any attempt to assign, convey, sell, license, or otherwise transfer any such right, title, or interest in or to such Credentials without such consent is void and ineffective.
While your account is active and in good standing, we will use reasonable efforts to make the Service and its features and functionalities reasonably available to you.2. ACCOUNT SET-UP AND SECURITY
2.1. Set-Up. In order to use the Service, you need a web browser (such as the Google Chrome web browser) or our mobile application. You will also need a supported electronic wallet, which will enable you to receive, store, and transmit Credentials via the Service and its integrations with our third-party partners.
2.2. Registration. You may be required to sign up for an account, select a password and user name (“Heirloom User ID”), and provide us with certain information or data, such as your contact information. You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself. You may not select as your Heirloom User ID a name that you do not have the right to use, or another person’s name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission
2.3. Third-Party Credentials. Additionally, you may be able to access certain parts or features of the Service by using your account credentials from other Services (each, a “Third Party Account”), such as those offered by Google. By using the Service through a Third Party Account, you permit us to access certain information from such account for use by the Service. You are ultimately in control of how much information is accessible to us and may exercise such control by adjusting your privacy settings on your Third-Party Account.
2.4. Security. You are responsible for the security of your account and for your electronic wallets. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account or your electronic wallet, you must notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will not share your Heirloom User ID, account, or password with anyone, and you must protect the security of your Heirloom User ID, account, password, and any other access tools or credentials. You’re responsible for any activity associated with your Heirloom User ID and account.
2.5. Messaging. As part of the Service, you may receive communications through the Service, including messages that Heirloom sends you (for example, via email or SMS). When signing up for the Service, you will receive a welcome message and instructions on how to stop receiving messages. By signing up for the Service and providing us with your wireless number, you confirm that you want Heirloom to send you information regarding your account or transactions with us, which may include Heirloom using automated dialing technology to text you at the wireless number you provided, and you agree to receive communications from Heirloom, and you represent and warrant that each person you register for the Service or for whom you provide a wireless phone number has consented to receive communications from Heirloom. You agree to indemnify and hold Heirloom harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to your breach of the foregoing.
2.6. Transmission of Credentials to Third-Party Partners. You can use the Service to facilitate the receipt, storage, and transmission of your Credentials via the Service and its integrations with our third-party partners.3. USE, OWNERSHIP, AND RESTRICTIONS
CREDENTIALS WILL ONLY BE TIED TO YOU AND RECOGNIZED BY US IF THE APPLICABLE CREDENTIAL PARTNER VERIFIES THAT THE CREDENTIAL IS TIED TO YOU AND ALLOWS YOU TO CLAIM IT. . WE MAY MAKE AVAILABLE THE ABILITY TO TRANSFER CERTAIN ASPECTS OF AN NFT (E.G., THE PRESENTATION LAYER) OUTSIDE THE SERVICE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE ONCE AN NFT HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED OUTSIDE THE SERVICE, YOU ARE FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECURITY OF THE NFT AND ALL RELATED THIRD-PARTY IP. YOUR USE OF THE NFT WILL BE ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE DO NOT CONTROL OR ENDORSE MINTING, ISSUANCES, PURCHASES, OR SALES OF NFTS OUTSIDE THE SERVICE. WE EXPRESSLY DENY ANY OBLIGATION TO INDEMNIFY YOU OR HOLD YOU HARMLESS FOR ANY LOSSES YOU MAY INCUR BY TRANSACTING OR FACILITATING TRANSACTIONS IN NFTS OUTSIDE THE SERVICE.
3.1. Credential Ownership. You do not “own” your Credentials – our Credential Partners do. Each Credential is subject to the terms under which it has been granted by the applicable Credential Partner. For example, if the Credential Partner is an accredited university and the Credential represents a degree you’ve been awarded by that university, the Credential can be revoked in accordance with the university’s applicable rules (e.g., if the university discovers that you committed academic misconduct in the course of earning your degree). Accordingly, we reserve the right to revise or revoke Credentials on behalf of, and at the direction of, our Credential Partners. Your Credential may contain additional intellectual property such as logos or other trademarks or copyrighted works of authorship owned or controlled by third parties, such as the applicable Credential Partner (“Third Party IP”). When you are issued a Credential, you are granted a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, nonexclusive right and license to use, reproduce, and publicly display your Credentials and to transmit your Credentials to our third-party partners, in each case: (i) via the Service or any authorized blockchain network that is compatible with the Service; (ii) for your own personal, non-commercial use; and (iii) including any Third Party IP contained therein. You acknowledge and agree that: (a) you do not have any right to use any Third Party IP in any way except as contained within the Credential and subject to the licenses and restrictions set forth herein; (b) depending on the nature of the license granted from the Third Party IP’s owner, we may need to (and hereby reserve the right to) pass through additional restrictions on use of such Third Party IP; and (c) if we inform you of such additional restrictions, you are responsible for complying with such restrictions from the date you receive notice and your failure to do so will be deemed a breach of this Section 3.
3.2. We Own the Service. You acknowledge and agree that we (or, as applicable, our licensors) owns all legal right, title, and interest in and to all other elements of the Service, and all intellectual property rights therein (including, without limitation, all designs, systems, methods, information, computer code, software, Service, “look and feel”, organization, compilation of the content, data, and all other elements of the Service (collectively, the “Service Materials”)). You acknowledge that the Service Materials are protected by copyright, trade dress, patent, and trademark laws, other relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights, and applicable laws. All Service Materials are the copyrighted property of us or our licensors, and all trademarks, service marks, and trade names associated with the Service or otherwise contained in the Service Materials are proprietary to us or our licensors.
3.3. No User License or Ownership of the Service Materials. Except for the access rights expressly set forth herein, your use of the Service does not grant you ownership of or any rights with respect to any content, code, data, or other Service Materials that you may access on or through the Service. We reserve all rights in and to the Service Materials that are not expressly granted to you in these Terms. For purposes of clarity, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) your issuance of a Credential, whether via the Service, from a Credential Partner or otherwise, does not give you any rights or licenses in or to the Service Materials other than those expressly contained in these Terms; (ii) you do not have the right, except as otherwise set forth in these Terms, to reproduce, distribute, or otherwise commercialize any elements of the Service Materials without our prior written consent in each case, which consent we may withhold in our sole and absolute discretion; and (iii) you will not apply for, register, or otherwise use or attempt to use any of our trademarks or service marks, or any confusingly similar marks, anywhere in the world without our prior written consent in each case, which consent we may withhold at our sole and absolute discretion.
3.4. Use Restrictions. You agree that you may not, nor permit any third party to do or attempt to do any of the foregoing without our (or, as applicable, our licensors’) express prior written consent in each case or except as expressly permitted under these Terms: (i) modify your Credential (or any portion thereof) in any way, including, without limitation, the shapes, designs, drawings, attributes, or color schemes; (ii) use your Credential (or any portion thereof) to advertise, market, or sell any third party product or service; (iii) use your Credential (or any portion thereof) in connection with images, videos, or other forms of media that depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others; (iv) sell, distribute for commercial gain (including, without limitation, giving away in the hopes of eventual commercial gain), or otherwise commercialize merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of any Third Party IP contained within your Credential; (v) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to your Credential (or any portion thereof); or (vi) otherwise utilize your Credential for your or any third party’s commercial benefit.
3.5. Other Terms of License. The licenses granted in Section 3.1 above applies only to the extent that the applicable Credential remains valid. If at any time your Credential becomes invalid for any reason, the license granted in Section 3.1 will immediately expire with respect to that Credential without any requirement to provide you notice, and you will have no further rights in or to the Third Party IP for that Credential. The restrictions in Sections 3.1, 3.4, and 3.5 will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms.
3.6. User Feedback. You may choose to submit comments, bug reports, ideas or other feedback about the Service, including without limitation about how to improve the Service (collectively, “Feedback”). By submitting any Feedback, you agree that we are free to use such Feedback at our discretion and without additional compensation to you, and to disclose such Feedback to third parties (whether on a non-confidential basis, or otherwise). You hereby grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide license under all rights necessary for us to incorporate and use your Feedback for any purpose.
3.7. Other User Submissions. Anything you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Service is your “User Submission”. Some User Submissions may be viewable by other users. You are solely responsible for all User Submissions you contribute to the Service. You represent that all User Submissions submitted by you are accurate, complete, up-to-date, and in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, and will not be for the purpose of any of the Prohibited Activities in Section 4.
3.8. License to User Submissions. By submitting User Submissions through the Service, you hereby do and shall grant Heirloom a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable and transferable license to use, edit, modify, truncate, aggregate, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, perform, and otherwise fully exploit the User Submissions in connection with this site, the Service and our (and our successors’ and assigns’) businesses, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of this site or the Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels (including, without limitation, third party websites and feeds), and including after your termination of your account or the Service. For clarity, the foregoing license grants do not affect your other ownership or license rights in your User Submissions, including the right to grant additional licenses to your User Submissions, unless otherwise agreed in writing. You represent and warrant that you have all rights to grant such licenses without infringement or violation of any third party rights, including without limitation, any privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, trademarks, contract rights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights.
3.9. Sharing User Submissions to Third-Party Accounts. If you share User Submissions from the Service with others through your Third-Party Accounts, such as your social networks, you authorize Heirloom to share that information with the applicable Third-Party Account provider. Please review the policies of any Third Party Account providers you share information with or through for additional information about how they may use your information. If you redistribute User Submissions, you must be able to edit or delete any User Submissions you redistribute, and you must edit or delete them promptly upon our request. Finally, you understand and agree that Heirloom, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Service to our users (including you), may need to make changes to your User Submissions to conform and adapt those User Submissions to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, Service, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.4. PAYMENT
4.1. Paid Service. The Service may be free or we may charge a fee for using the Service. If you are using a free version of the Service, we will notify you before any Service you are then using begins carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such Service, you must pay all applicable fees for such Service. Certain features of our Service may be subject to payments now or in the future (the “Paid Service”). Please note that any payment terms presented to you in the process of using or signing up for a Paid Service are deemed part of these Terms. For example, there may be a fee for downloading or installing the Service through the App Store (as defined below) linked to your specific device. You agree to comply with, and your license to use our mobile application is conditioned upon your compliance with, such App Store terms and conditions. Any refunds relating to the applications or inquiries regarding refunds relating to the applications shall be handled solely by the applicable App Store in accordance with such App Store’s terms and conditions.
4.2. Billing. We use third-party payment processors (the “Payment Processors”) to bill you through a payment account linked to your account on the Service (your “Billing Account”) for use of the Paid Service. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to these Terms. Currently, we use Stripe, Inc., Apple, Inc., Google LLC, and Wyre, Inc. as our Payment Processors. We are not responsible for any error by, or other acts or omissions of, the Payment Processor. By choosing to use Paid Service, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Paid Service in accordance with the applicable payment terms, and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that the Payment Processor makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
4.3. Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.
4.4. Current Information Required.
YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE, AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT CURRENT, COMPLETE, AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY US OR OUR PAYMENT PROCESSOR IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE AT ACCOUNT SETTINGS. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY USE OF PAID SERVICE UNDER YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR PAID SERVICE AS SET FORTH ABOVE.
4.5. Change in Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), you have the right to receive, and we shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
4.6. Data and Text Messaging Charges. Note that if you elect to receive text messages through the Service, data and message rates may apply. Any and all such charges, fees, or costs are your sole responsibility.
