Thank you for using FARclause.com (“Web site”) and associated services (“Services”). Please read the following TERMS OF USE carefully before using the Web site. The TERMS OF USE contain the terms and conditions under which UNISON SOFTWARE, INC. (UNISON) provides Services to you and describe how the Services may be accessed and used.  

These TERMS OF USE is an agreement between UNISON AND YOU (“you” or “your”) for the creation of the Web site’s account and/or access to or use of the Web site whether or not you create an account.

You should review the TERMS OF USE regularly as they may change at any time at our sole discretion. If you do not agree to any term or condition, you should not access or otherwise use our Web site.

"Content" refers to any information you submit to our Web site.

Updates to Terms of Use

UNISON may update these TERMS OF USE at any time for a variety of reasons, such as to reflect changes in applicable law or updates to Services, and to factor for the implementation of new Services or functionality. UNISON may also,  provide notification regarding any updates on the Web site, such as in the Blog section, or via email to you. Updated TERMS OF USE will be effective no sooner than the day they are publicly posted. In order for certain changes or updates to become effective, applicable law may require UNISON to obtain your consent to such changes, or to provide you with sufficient advance notice of them. If you do not want to agree to any changes made to the TERMS OF USE, you should stop using the Service; otherwise, by continuing to use the Services you indicate your agreement with the updated TERMS OF USE.

Changes to Services

“Services” consist of the FARclause Web site, to include any content on the Web site offered by UNISON regardless of the manner, form, or medium in which the content is delivered to you. UNISON constantly changes and improves the Services. UNISON may add, alter, or remove functionality from a Service at any time without prior notice. UNISON may also limit, suspend, or discontinue a Service at its discretion. If UNISON discontinues a Service, we will give you reasonable notice in advance to provide you with an opportunity to export a copy of your Content from the Service. UNISON may remove information from the Services at any time in our sole discretion; although, we will attempt to notify you so long as it may materially impact you and is practicable under the circumstances.

Pricing and Subscriptions

Our Services are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscriptions”). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Billing cycles are typically monthly or annual, depending on which subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel auto-renewal by contacting our customer support team. UNISON does not provide refunds for unused portions of a Subscription period for cancellations within that Subscription period unless you are cancelling due to our breach and have so notified us in writing.

UNISON may change the fees charged for the Services at any time; provided that, for Services billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. UNISON will provide you with reasonable prior written notice of any change in fees to give you an opportunity to cancel your Subscription before the change becomes effective.
